Bought the game on PS4. Played it for 4 weeks. Meh. Traded it in.

Then recently heard about the improvements, re-bought it again after the Destiny 2 letdown and OH. MY. GOD. AMAZING GAME.

Honestly, The improvements to the game now make it SOOOOO much better, and I wish it only released in this way. It's genuinely a brilliant game and one everyone should retry. I'm willing to give developers a second chance and in this case Ubi really did pull through.

I have high hopes for the sequel as I think they learnt a lot.

Jelly Deals: LG's finest 4K OLED just got a little cheaper

the_sas_man

7 months ago

Tip if you buy this - they messed up Game mode with a firmware update (only game mode runs 21ms) and it looks really dark and not vibrant at all.

So instead change your icon on the input to the PC icon and you'll get back to your 21ms again. Then simply play with the standard HDR settings to get back to what game mode was (contrast/brightness etc).

Lots of forum posts on that.

other than that, this TV is INCREDIBLE - I pulled the trigger on the 65inch and I have to say its absolutely outstanding.

Jelly Deals: LG 55-inch 4K OLED TV at its cheapest price yet

the_sas_man

Just bought the LG B7 here in the states. Went for the 65 inch at $3k... its a deal by those standards but agreeably VERY expensive. However, I must say 4k is a delight, such as the Grand Tour. As for gaming, its sublime.

Ironically the HDR is a bigger upgrade for me than the 4k... so my question is can you get HDR 1080p sets?

Anyone who can afford this though should take the plunge... awesome picture. OLED IS the future - no doubt in my mind.

Games Done Quick raises over $225,000 for Hurricane Harvey victims

the_sas_man

8 months ago

@Eaton_Corvinus

I'm British? Born and raised in the UK... don't see what that has to do with it?

And sure... it's over the news because it's affected millions of people, it's shut off 20% of the oil production, and will cost $180bn to repair. That news worthy.

But clearly, you being the voice of reason to raise awareness of all these other disasters while implying this is not as "bad" is exactly what this world needs right now. Because I'm sure you're donating money to these other causes. I'm sure you're taking actual action to help these people I need Asia? Of course not, you're sitting there behind your keyboard enjoying a coffee like the rest of us.

If people want to donate to Harvey then let them. They know what they are donating to. And American companies like Ebay etc that have Harvey donation services... so what? Let them. This particular service has raised $225k for an amazing cause for people who need it and you're trying to stick your nose up at it saying it's not as bad.

By that reckoning, I guess the outpouring of support and donations for the Grenfell tower victims was over the top? After all.... there was a building collapse in India recently that caused hundreds more deaths. I guess you donated to that instead because how dare Brits donate to a homegrown catastrophe and donate when you have the other countries suffering...

It's just typical American bashing on here.

@Eaton_Corvinus I do hate this "our disaster is worse than your disaster" BS that keyboard warriors are thrashing about.

I think MANY of us aware of the issues around the world. Sadly much of that aid doesn't get to the people who really need it but fills the pocket of corrupt governments. It's why many Brits don't agree with government policy to giving aid to so many African countries (who desperately need it) because it usually funds their war efforts instead.

So yeah, there are disasters around the world, but what you're seeing in Texas is very real and a humanitarian disaster. Only 15% of people have the insurance to get them out of this mess.

Imagine a flood hitting an impoverished area of the UK that left it devastated. Imagine tens of thousands being displaced and people not having the means to sort it for themselves? You're telling me you would refuse aid because people around the world need it? Likewise, why shouldn't Americans and American companies give to American Harvey? Charity begin at home right>

So stop with the comparisons... if you don't want to give then don't. There are plenty of disasters and humanitarian needs around the world right now.

Always wondered why over the years they haven't managed to shave off an extra week on the release date. Surely there is something to be said for the game coming out when the season starts, with a free update first week of September with the player changes that occur.

I dunno, call me a marketing whizz or something, but riding the first few weeks of the football season starting has to be good for sales. Heck, even Fifa comes out pretty soon after!

Here in America we pay $59 for 12 months... with Tax making it around $63.

For conversion, that's £46, or £3.80 per month based on the 12 month package (you can't get a 15 month here in the US).

Yet with this deal, you guys are paying £2.60 per month. So I really don't know what you're fussing about. It's great value.

Pokťmon Go Fest's online stream made the event look like a disaster

A little extra perspective here people... this event was held in Chicago. As we all know, the States is huge. This wasn't a case of getting a 3 hour train journey from London Euston to Birmingham... some of these people paid hundreds of dollars on plane fares travelling from LA, Seattle, NY. Many locations wont't of had direct flights in.Add in on top hotels etc, its a very pricey day trip.

I'm not saying this is for all people, but even if this was just a 50 of that 20,000, you can understand the intense frustration. Niantec, from release, have shown themselves to be piss poor at support and organisation.

@Drakesmoke As someone who lives in L.A, I struggle to find the similarities of 100 people standing in front of a tram, with silly music playing in the background, to that of a homicidal maniac in a truck mowing down people.

In fact, there is more of a similarity to Nice if you actually played GTA in its general terms where you can be in a truck and mow down people. I guess EGTA should be pulled from the shelves... I wonder if you can still buy the game in Nice...?

People's concerns of "what's the point - no-one has 4k televisions" is being a little short sighted.

Here in the States (and with Black Friday coming it will only get cheaper), a 4k TV can be picked up for as little as $400 fro Bestbuy (and that's a 43 inch size). My LG is 43 inch 4k and was $430 last year.

The sad truth is the Brits get ripped off on tech, but 4k is coming and its going to be mainstream.

Asus ROG GX800VH review - the world's most powerful gaming laptop?

the_sas_man

2 years ago

I live in a two bedroom house, with one room designated to a baby.

"You're not putting a big desktop in that room" she says. "And definitely not in our bedroom".

So a gaming laptop is perfect for me. It means I can take it into the different rooms around my own house, without having to have a permanent place for it. I agree, its very expensive but for someone like myself it's actually totally practical. If I want to play the best games at the highest setting then I accept the premium it throws at me. Given the choice I'd go desktop but it's just not going to happen.

I think more than anything this article demonstrates just how far laptops have come now. Sure they are big bulk heads for you all in this day and age, but who is to say in 10 years we aren't all playing off laptops attached to a screen and the desktop base as we know it disappears? This if you ask me id the beginning of that.

Can the new Apple TV succeed as a games machine?

the_sas_man

3 years ago

@CaptainKid

You're comparing two different things.

It doesn't matter what is bigger - the fact is if its profitable.

The video games market has more revenue than Hollywood. Microsoft were in the Windows/browser market but still made HUGE profits from gaming. If there is money to be made, then Apple will do it.

Not to mention the other revenue streams from gaming such as film IP's (plenty out there) merchandise (Pokemon / Mario etc) whilst also allowing you to install your own ecosystem (Xbox in partiuclar is great at this).

In fact an Apple console wold be a great way to ram iTunes down our throats, create spin-off apps of games for other devices and produce actual content. And what 3rd party wouldn't want to make a triple A game for them?

I'm not an Apple fanboy by the way, but it makes perfect business sense that if that is the negative about it. I can already picture the fans queuing around the block to buy a $499 console - it's a frightening thought but both Microsoft and Sony did it and were very successful at it.

the_sas_man

This is a really interesting move by Apple. For me it signifies their first step towards a fully exclusive console - it would not surprise me if this is seen as a testbed for them.

I remember a time when Sega and Nintendo ruled, and everyone else laughed at Sony. What did they know about gaming and consoles? The rest is history as they say.

I guess my only concern is this - should Apple ever release a fully fledged console, there isn't enough room in the market to support 4 consoles. Sega found that out the hard way, and of the current 3, it would probably be Nintendo who would suffer most.

Either way, this story is certainly more about what it signifies than the current hardware.

Because if we turn a blind eye then this will continue to happen.

Next time it might be the PS4 version that suffers, or the Xboxone version. It isn't about which hardware you own, this should be a concern for all gamers regardless.

Rocksteady deserve all of the criticism they get.
