So all games you can play with better frame rates on other systems then? And the Switch version will probably be the most expensive too. Any game of interest I will just wait on a Steam sale for. Two pounds each sounds just about right.

PlayStation VR nears 1m sold

So those of you who have PSVR...is the tracking issue now solved? I cancelled my PSVR when those potential issues started to surface and after watching that car crash of a Giant Bomb look at PSVR had dismissed it as' broken' tech. Will scour YouTube for some recent PSVR gameplay videos tonight.

If the issue is fixed, then I am in. If not, I am out.

Nintendo Switch Joy-Con connection issue sparks concern ahead of launch

I may consider getting a Switch eventually depending on the games library available, but this initially seems to be a widespread issue on NeoGaf which is a calamity for Nintendo if it remains unaddressed.

Sony PlayStation VR review

rhubarbandcustard

2 years ago

Can't believe nobody has mentioned Giantbomb's PSVR streaming video from yesterday. Jeff Gerstmanm, who loves VR, was wan, sickly and ill from using that device one hour into the streaming show. They had two different headsets on the show and significant drift on both making the experience nausea inducing.

I love their VRodeo shows and was stoked for an affordable VR console option. But that stream yesterday was a car wreck of a product launch.

Pre-order cancelled!!!!!!

I played and loved all the Telltale games, but only once all episodes have been released - I play one episode a day til completion.

I am a huge Batman fan. Do I play this episode tonight knowing there is a whole month to wait before episode 2? Decisions, decisions. Doesn't the story lose impact waiting so long between episodes?

Performance Analysis: Doom beta on PS4 and Xbox One

rhubarbandcustard

2 years ago

As develops get to grips with PS4 and Xbox One hardware I would expect 60fps to become increasingly attainable for any developer wishing to go down that route.

I remain unconvinced on these console hardware revisions having any impact on the design of games for these platforms - as usual the Internet has got itself in a frenzy over nothing.

Bizarre that Eurogamer reviewed this on a monitor rather than VR which is what it was designed for. Giantbomb have done a quick look of this game on an Occulus Rift, and they are as entertaining as always, and that quick look makes this game in VR look pretty damn essential.

Silly review.

Fallout 4 The Automatron review

Fallout 4 was outstanding. The usual complainers are complaining, but their whining can not detract from the fact that Fallout 4 is a brilliant game from top to bottom. I sunk 150 hours completing the main game and had a blast. I will play all the dlc that gets released for this game, and an expecting nothing less than Bethesda's usual excellence for every one.

rhubarbandcustard

I am over 200 hours into Fallout 4 and it is in the top 10 best games I have ever played. And yes this is on the PS4 and in my opinion it runs flawlessly. I have an SSD in my PS4 which means no pop-in and barely non-existent load times.

Is it time for a PS4 SSD upgrade?

rhubarbandcustard

Bought a 480GB SSD in the amazon black friday sale for 80. Fitted it into the PS4 and (still) have only played Fallout 4 (what a game!), but load times seem negligible. For that game in particular the upgrade has saved me probably hours of just staring at a load screen.

I remember when the biggest knock against Fifa was that it was made by Americans and 'what do the yanks know about football'.

EA Sports and FIFA have of course grown into titans of the videogame industry. Each annual release a masterclass in gameplay and design.

I know some people continue to prefer PES just to be edgy, but really... what do the japanese know about football.

"It's a worry if something like MGSV is not profitable. It's a bloody brilliant game and the industry needs more games like it and more risk takers.I don't want to just be left with FIFA, COD and Assassins Creed every year"

You are using the FIFTH version of Metal Gear Solid (a number which does not include all the mobile games) as an example of risk taking in the industry!!!

And then have the gaul to knock FIFA, COD and Assassins Creed!!!

By the way, your movies are shit too.

Had just watched the trailer for this on Steam and had instantly clicked the 'Add to Wishlist' button.

And now a review, how timely.

Well, for a Pixelart game it does look gorgeous in motion. And only 7 too.

The only negative is the lack of in game explanation for what it wants you to do. The reviewer says he even contacted the developers in the end...hmmmm. I'm undecided.

truthlolz - and how much did that PC cost? And how much does a graphics card able to run Witcher 3 at 60fps cost?

Consoles exist for a very good reason. Great gaming on fixed hardware at reasonable cost. And all the games are optimised for that hardware too.

Remember, remember BATMAN ARKHAM KNIGHT. What were you getting on PC? 10fps!

As anyone who has enjoyed women's football on Sky can attest, it is the beautiful game made even more beautiful.

In the same way that women's tennis is far better than men's tennis so is football.

Skill and technique will always be more enjoyable than grunt and power.

Next year please flesh out the women's mode into career and championship. And maybe in a few years time they can even think about ditching the men altogether.

I like Ron Perlman and I can even tolerate Jeff Goldblum in bursts, but in an age of over inflated game budgets is it really necessary to splurge money from the budget on a bunch of middle tier hollywood actors?

As someone with a dedicated gaming room, I know - lucky me, this sounds pretty incredible.

Grim Fandango Remastered review

rhubarbandcustard

3 years ago

@Subdominator

Exactly my thoughts too. I won't deny that the look of Grim Fandango is pretty awesome, but as a game I think this rates pretty low down the list of great adventure games from that period. I always thought that the cult appeal of this game came from people seeing the pretty screenshots rather than from those of us who tried to grind through the damn thing.
