I have a PS4 pro and genuinely feel let down by Arkane. I'd really love to have bought this game at launch but the demo really put me off. It just felt and looked terrible. Watching the PC play throughs I felt as if I'd spent my money on the wrong platform, even though other studios such as naughty dog and guerrilla are knocking it so far out of the park it's embarrassing. Come on Arkane pull up your socks and deliver a decent experience why don't you?

Infinite Warfare is less than 15 new on Amazon. Less than Titanfall 2 and much cheaper than Battlefield 1. I always used to buy COD about now and be happy to pay 20-25, so this edition has really dropped in price this time around.

Performance Analysis: Battlefield Hardline Multiplayer

leafmulch

3 years ago

In my ever so humble opinion I think the frostbite engine is really great. I know graphics are subjective and all, but whereas Destiny might win on its painterly vision I think BF wins on lighting and that feeling of realism. I'm really looking forward to playing hardline again (enjoyed the beta) but will still keep playing bf4 for the different style and incoming night maps etc.

@Red-Wolf-Six @Mr-Writer I'd love to know why these games are rated so harshly in comparison to some really violent movies rated 12. I'd have thought that's movie industry muscle lobbying for a wider audience, but also including every punch they can to entertain the audience etc.

Video: Battlefield Hardline's image problem

leafmulch

3 years ago

'at a time when the police force is increasingly looking more like the military is either misguided, pigheaded or both'.. This comes across as a smarmy, arrogant or both opinion piece. I'm not even sure if it's really the narrators opinion for real or just an attempt to stir up the viewers and drive hits. It actually does a disservice to the people affected by the events in places such as Ferguson and you're not educating anybody or improving understanding, as to how this game is a bad thing. It's as if you're just taking a pot shots at the publisher for kicks and I'm pretty sure that's a misuse of your position as a news (albeit on video games) outlet...

Titanfall and Season Pass bundle just 10 on Xbox this week

leafmulch

3 years ago

Titanfall is pretty darn playable on the 360 for those wondering. I got it at Christmas and I've sunk enough hours into it to hit level 30+ on generation 2. It doesn't play much like COD imo - I've been playing AW on my PS4 and I think I prefer titanfall on the 360. Both are good, but titanfall is less stressful and having the mechs really breaks up the action.

For those asking - it's not x buy and you can't move your accounts from 360 -> xb1.

@Tomahawk I couldn't agree more, but it was far cry 3 that scored highest and its narrative was pretty bad by the end.

Sony explains PS4 digital game pricing

leafmulch

4 years ago

Something is odd about this pricing. Why charge so much over the market price if you want people to embrace a digital download future? Steam obviously have the right idea, but for some reason Sony and MS want to charge more. Is it the publishers like Activision, EA and Ubisoft keeping the prices high?

really shouldn't care about the resolution numbers, but it'd be nice to see things rendered in the native resolution of what must be a very common format.

I'd say solid frame rate, no dips or tearing and some lovely deferred lighting is what will make it look and feel great. Not that anyone actually wants to play this next gen dragon's lair.

Hoarding at the end of the world

@GreyBeard
This is the second time I've read this fallacious ludo-narrative dissonance argument trotted out, and once again I'm reminded of the difference between games writers and game designers. The former is only thinking of themselves, whilst the latter -at least the good ones- are constantly thinking of an entire audience.

I'm in total agreement with you on this. If we got the real deal it'd be a bore or near impossible to play. I'm happy to be proven wrong and maybe in time things will develop in a way Rich will enjoy, but for me LoU was a great way to end the generation.

How The Crew was ported to PlayStation 4

leafmulch

5 years ago

Great DF article - probably the best one in ages. It'll be great to see some others from the likes of Guerilla and ND further down the line. I think to some extent the ability to deliver games before impossible will only be held back now by the developer's imagination. I want to see improved versions of the things I love, but interwoven with new ideas that until now didn't have the elbow room when striving for acceptable performance and presentation. A good example might be something like State of Decay that didn't deliver on the technical front, but still had lots of great ideas which made it fresh to play. I'd like to see more of that please.

Need for Speed: Most Wanted vs. PlayStation Vita

Really interesting take on the sacrifice/compromises required to get the game working. I especially liked that whole 'holistic' view Criterion say they employed to produce the results which were a good fit for the handheld, i.e. less effects which aren't especially noticeable on the smaller screen.

@thetimeisnow the "widow maker" trophy, although crass isn't on the same level. The expression "Bros Before Hos" is misogynistic and will offend most women and a good proportion of men. Perhaps devs should stop trying to be so edgy with their trophy naming.

UK chart: Anarchy Reigns enters in 16th

I've been ploughing through the campaign and although a bit repetitive it's still enormous fun with some absolutely bonkers cut scenes which are just spit out your tea funny. The MP matches I've played have all been great with no obvious network issues. Having played this much of it I'd been happy to have paid 30, so 15 is a real treat. End result - can't wait for Metal Gear Rising.

Got this delivered this morning and I've barely scratched the surface, but for 15 I paid this is a heck of a lot of fun for the money. Can't wait to play with Bayonetta, but just starting with Jack from MadWorld and his retractable chainsaw is making a great first impression!

Anyone that likes action/brawling/3rd person will get their money's worth.

Borderlands 2 character, vehicle DLC coming separately to Season Pass

leafmulch

6 years ago

Season Pass is great if you want everything but the stuff that isn't covered by the season pass. Great sell. Seriously though, I think people should wait for the release of DLC before committing to buy it - you might be totally fed up of the game by the time x DLC is released. That and you can usually get this stuff half price on xbox live every so often anyway.
