@MerryLoony Believe me, it's very much alive now on PS4 at least.

It has the potential to give many hours of fun over a few months. Should they refrain from recommending less than 6 hours long single player games that are uninstalled and forgotten after an evening play as well?

Lawbreakers PS4 launch code hitches and stutters

@Foxtrot-Oscar I did, and yes the comparisons are fair. Imo it is UT in Hero shooter clothing.

@PAzz Works almost perfectly on my end. Any remaining micro stutter is just a rare and very minor frame drop i.e. the kind of stuff you probably wouldn't spot in normal 60fps streaming and need DF style slow-mo analysis with framerate graph to catch. Or perhaps I was just too busy having fun to notice..

Input lag tested: COD vs Battlefield - which is the most responsive FPS?

jimboton

9 months ago

Great article!

It would have been nice to see tested different versions of the same game, pc too if possible. There was a thread in NeoGaf a while ago where someone had supposedly tested xone vs ps4 versions of the same games and his takeaway was that xone games were a tad slower in most cases, he speculated this was due to some kind of OS level 'feature'. Would be nice to see DF look into this.

Also, Destiny should have been included!

After the remarkably grounded (even timidly positive!) article about Destiny 2's bullshit no servers, 30 fps, 4v4 restricted, dumbed down pvp this really feels like it was written by a different person! Violent Wesley anyone?

The best action game no one's ever heard of just got a sequel - and it's phenomenal

jimboton

@porkface No conspiracy theory, I just think the whole 'it's a small game therefore not deserving of full blown review treatment' mentality is sad. I'm not arguing that an article isn't better than nothing which it is, surely you don't expect us to believe you don't know full well that a review (and a Recommended or Essential badge if the game is that good) is on a whole different level when it comes to make people take notice. Some years ago EG published a list of the best games of the last generation, Spelunky was there (so, so very rightfully) ranked third, just below Dark Souls. I feel under the new management it would have got a side article along the lines of 'I was bored the other day so I downloaded this game called Spelunky and it ain't half bad you know' at the time of release then utterly forgotten in a week.

@porkface Sorry this doesn't make a lot of sense (which makes me think it's not in fact the actual reason). A review is the best way to ensure a good game gets noticed.
