Demo showdown: Crysis 3 multiplayer beta

gavinrollings

5 years ago

@freethinker101 I hate myself for constantly noticing flaws in games. Especially on PC because I have the options to fix them. Sometimes though you just have to stop and realise your not made of money and what you have will do fine. Whether its a console or a PC. We all need to get back to just enjoying games rather than comparing them.

@Suarez07 That bug happens to me too. I think its the same for everyone. We all just have to remember its a beta. I have faith that the retail version will be fine.

I got nothing but praise for the beta. Been playing it non stop on PC. I tried the 360 & PS3 versions but just couldn't get along with them. Too low res and too much blurring going on.

I have a GTX660 and can get a steady 60fps @1080p with everything on medium, drops to 50ish now and again on high but I've been playing at 1366x768 with everything on high and 4x smaa and it runs steadily at 60fps. Looks beautiful so I can only imagine how good looking the campaign is going to be.

Even though alot of gamers hated Crysis 2 it still is one of my favourite games of all time. Like DF said, it's also my go to game to show off what current PC tech can achieve.

Dead Space 3 launches with 11 DLC packs for speeding loot collection, kitting out character

gavinrollings

5 years ago

Wait a minute, First Contact bundle is free & the Witness the Truth pack is a couple quid right? So the Limited Edition version of the game, which is 5 more, which includes those 2 packs is basically just the regular version of the game and the DLC. No saving whatsoever. It would cost the same if you bought the regular edition and the Witness the Truth DLC. Now I think that's pretty crap. Cancelled my preorder for that edition and going with the regular one now.

@tifaya93 "I wonder if the additional story will focus on lexine after what happened to her in dead space 2 severed?"

That would be cool. She's just as important to the overall Marker lore as Isaac is. Does she have Gabes baby and is he/she also immune to the Marker? Be nice to find out.

Tomb Raider multiplayer counts for a quarter of game's Achievements

@Nismo400R84 Not at all. I read this article because I'm extremely excited about Tomb Raider. Any article mentioning it will peak my interest. Goes to show how some gamers think, a comment saying achievements/trophies are silly getting so many negatives it gets hidden. Jeez, imagine that lot growing up in an earlier era like myself. Games wouldn't break a dozen sales.

Syndicate studio developing Storm, a new sci-fi shooter IP

5 years ago

I loved Syndicate. I didn't dislike anything about it. Felt totally underrated to me. I don't remember anyone on my friends list ever playing it. Fantastic single player and co-op was pretty fun until it got to a point where I couldn't find any games and when I could there was never 4 of us. I'll lap up anything sci-fi so I'll keep my eye on this one. I can't fault Starbreeze in the slightest. I love how their FPS's always felt so different to others.

BioShock Infinite delayed a month to March 2013 for "extra polish and bug fixing"

Ken Levine is one guy I completely trust with this. He always seems to know exactly what's going on, and sounds confident in his product. I'm happy it got pushed back a month for extra polish, other people should take note. February is still crowded to hell though, Dead Space, Aliens, Crysis & Tomb Raider! Even March has Gears of War and now Bioshock. I'm secretly hoping another game gets pushed from February to March so my bank account can breathe a bit easier.

one difference you won't see here though is the wii u version is running at 720p upscaled to 1080p whereas the pc version would be running natively to your monitor. 1080p for me personally. put those screens side by and you will see a big difference.

I'm not really that bothered about ads to be honest. How often do you sit on the dashboard anyway? I use it have a quick glance who's online and what demo's are available and that's it. It's a games console after all. I'm usually too busy playing the games than anything else.

On a side note; who here misses the "blades"? I do. Always thought that was a cool UI.
