Dispelling the myths of Bloodborne

quadfather

2 months ago

It's a strange world, the soulsborne one. Yes, it can be easy when you've got your flow, and it can be infuriatingly annoying when you haven't. But that's the point. You need to understand the game and get under it's skin. And while you're doing that, you're looking into the abyss and it's looking back at you, getting under your skin.

It's beautiful and maddening at the same time.

Proper stuff.

I still have the original disk of exhumed. If you pop it in the cd drive you can listen to the soundtrack, which is excellent.

Prey's new PS4 Pro support is welcome - but the added stutter isn't

quadfather

@the_ewan

I suppose it is on both versions as I've been playing it since launch slowly so have a fair few hours on both.

The only other thing I can think of is that mines a digital install, but surely that can't be the reason?

I see I'm being negged. I was only trying to give another scenario against what we're reading about.

Oh dear :)

I can't be the only one that finds it runs perfectly on my ps4 pro? The only thing I had to do was to increase the sensitivity a few notches to make it more responsive. But that's it. I've not witnessed any slowdown, juddery gameplay or any other issues. Granted, the load times are really long but that's all I can really notice.

Maybe I'm just super lucky or something? Er?

Prey review

quadfather

The input lag was putting me off getting this, but boy am I glad I did. It's a stellar game and I'm totally loving it. +1 for Essential too.

And regarding the input lag, I find that if you increase the sensitivity 2-3 notches up, it practically eliminates it.

Not sure about the collision, but it is paining me watching this video a few times now - GET YOUR BLOODY SHIELD UP MAN!

And of course it's going to be different from Demon's and Dark. Did they expect it to be exactly the same? I can load up either of the souls games for that experience

Belayed potential: The art of videogame climbing

quadfather

5 years ago

Prince of Persia: Sands of time had a couple of good moments. I remember my stomach fluttering in certain areas.

I'd really like to see a decent climbing game actually.

Mission 1: Basic tower
Objectives: Get to the top using various tools.

Mission 2: Advanced tower with side wind
Objectives: Don't fucking fall

You could have checkpoints in the cliff face too. Like little nest areas or something.

I'll be quiet now.

This is one game I got before reading any review of it - I just fancied it. So glad I got it before reading any of the reviews. There was so much hate for it that I probably wouldn't have bothered if I'd have read a review. Devisive maybe, but I absolutely love it.

Dark Souls PC Preview: The Devil's Bargain

I'd like to know a bit more about the controls on the PC version. And it's good that the framerate areas have been tackled.

gfwl sucks donkey balls, but it's not the end of the world. And I'm not that fussed at 30fps. Though the resolution is weird.

No mention of whether the bb glitch is possible either.

Still going to have to get on one format or another though
