@darkstar2017 I doubt this is a time limited exclusive. It's probably just that the developers want to concentrate first on the platforms which equates to the most sales, especially as they probably have limited resources.

There has been no end to the success stories regarding indie games on the Swicth, so it's no surprise really

@wellzy4eva I'm playing on PC and it performs well. Very similar to Origins, smooth most of the time with some stutter in the built up areas and larger towns.

Overall thoroughly recommend on PC

Facebook are an absolutely shit company. Not quite sure what they would have to do for people to actually stop using them though.

Resident Evil 2 review - a masterly reimagining of a modern classic

@LaNooch29 The HDR suffered from a "white cast" over the entire screen (made the game looke like gamma was set way to high).

I am interested to know if this has been fixed for the final release.

@anders190 Did you try the demo with HDR on your OLED? The demo suffered from a "white cast" across the entire screen. Not sure if this is fixed in the final version, but if HDR is important to you then you may want to wait and see if this is still an issue.

Resident Evil 2 Remake takes Capcom's RE engine to the next level

richyroo

1 month ago

@Grand_Jury I played both the PS4 version and the PC version on my 4k HDR tv. Both versions suffered horribly by the terrible gamma (white cast across the screen).

I assume this is only an HDR problem then. Unfortunately due to the time limited demo I didn't get a chance to try it in non HDR mode.

I will be waiting to see if this problem has been fixed in the final release, because as it is this would completely ruin the experience for me.

Resident Evil 2 remake players have found easy workarounds for the demo's 30-minute time limit

richyroo

@Mar27w I heard the demo on the XB1X version is only 1080p, hence a softer look, but Im not too sure to be honest. The PS4 Pro and PC versions looked sharp to me on my 4k HDR tv.

The washed out image looked terrible in the dark using the flashlight. Really ruined the experience for me.

I did turn off the HDR during the demo on the PC but the problem remained. It may of been that the initial brightness setup was then borked. I would of preferred to have started the game from a clean boot with HDR off to judge if it was really an HDR issue.
Unfortunately I didn't get to try this due to the time limited demo.

I will wait to hear other feedback before I purchase.

@villevalo I had a washed out image on both the PS4 Pro and the PC version. Looked like the gamma was too high and had a white cast across the whole screen. The problem doesnt seem to be platform specific, although I played both versions on my HDR 4k TV

Dead or Alive 6 delayed by two weeks

richyroo

@ecco Admittedly I was basing my original comment of them looking like plastic mannequins after only looking at the screenshots.

I have now watched the video and I can honestly say they look even worse than they do on the screenshots. Bland, plastic, lacking detail.

Very poor in general and certainly not up to the same standard as say Soul Calibur VI, Injustice 2, or any current gen fighting game. Shame.

I used to be a HUGE dead or alive fan, going right back to the PS1 days.

However the more I see of this I just struggle to get excited. The character models really haven't improved from the Xbox 1 days, they still look like plastic mannequins.

Take into account the terrible dlc practice as well. Currently to buy all the dlc for doa5 last round on Steam would cost you 3 shy of 1,000. That's absolutely crazy.

I will be firmly waiting to see what there plans are with this game before investing.

For me its been another strong year of gaming with some exceptionally high quality titles from both the big budget studios and the indie studios.

But my number 1 game of the year and also my biggest surprise of the year is Assassins Creed: Odyssey. Never would have I ever thought than an Ubisoft open world title would become my game of the year.

2. Red Dead Redemption 2

This game reached number 3 in the all-format charts. I feel so sorry for all those that bought this game. However perhaps in future they wont blindly trust that a game will be good based on its name alone and look at the warning signs (late review embargos etc).

It's why smart TVs are a con. A few years down the line and all the apps won't work. I wish you could buy a decent "dumb" TV and I would just plug in my Chromecast and save money not having pointless features

@Money_sandwhch I haven't had to grind at all during my play through. Your only 20 hours in, there is a vast world out there to explore with lots of missions to do. Not sure why your having to grind at all unless your just sticking to the main quest, but then why play an open world game at all if this is the case.

AC Odyssey is a very generous game and an excellent one at that. I am currently 90 hours in and still enjoying it, for me it's the best in the series by far and one of my favourite games of the year. Ubisoft has pulled it out of the bag with this one.

Looking forward to both the free and paid dlc in the future.

@danielhardcastle being negged doesn't mean your not entitled to your own opinion, it just means most people have a different opinion than you. This is quite useful for people who haven't played the game wondering if it is any good or not.

Well that's how I view the voting system anyway. I don't get annoyed when my messages get negged, it just means people don't agree with me, which is fine.

Thronebreaker is looking very good indeed, for both card game fans and non card game fans alike. Cannot wait to dip into this next month. A generous campaign and a nice price tag......definately a CDPR game.

For anyone also thinking about getting into Gwent, there would not be a better time than when this homecoming update hits. The game is completely overhauled and will be unfamilar to both new and returning players.

I imagine this will also hurt new game sales for Nintendo and publishers.

I was interested in buying the street fighter collection, but now I am seriously concerned that I wouldn't even be able to find a game online. I am now looking to buy this on another system.

I will seriously consider all future switch purchase which have an online component and now probably get them on another system. I think the bubble is about to burst for Nintendo.

@Rajin Yeah they basically abandoned the game for 6 months while they concentrate on the homecoming update.

They admitted (about 5 months ago) that they made a lot of mis-steps hence the complete revamp in the works. The game has been incredibly stale for the last 5 months but that is all set to change.
