That's really disappointing :( Twin Sticks are one of my favorite genres and not many seem to make decent ones any more, if at all. They were the only real dev I could rely on to release a good one every few years. SSHD, Dead Nation, Alienation, Resogun, Nex Machina, all awesome titles.

RIP!

I absolutely FLAT OUT refuse to buy Rise of Iron.

I loaded up Destiny for the first time in AGES yesterday only to fin that there is pretty much fuck all for me to do without owning RoI. No Daily bounties or weekly heroics etc.. What a joke.

I might, MIGHT buy the Desinty collection if it goes on sale or I can find it 2nd hand for a reasonable price.

Getting back into destiny having been away for so long is really hard. All your gear is SHIT and you need good gear to grind better gear.

I LOVED destiny Year 1 but now getting back into it (other than it being a TOTAL RIP OFF) is very daunting!

(if anyone has a copy of Destiny Collection PS4 they no longer want I'll take it off yer hands ;))

ReCore update to tackle long load times on Xbox One

xFiReStOrMx

2 years ago

@man.the.king They aren't that bad now (they were pretty annoying at first but after being patched they became much better).

Also the frame rate is fine. From what I recall it wasa pretty much solid 30fps but it had some frame pacing issues which made it seem like it was lower. Dark Souls 3 feels exactly the same as Bloodborne if that makes any difference. Also the load screens were change to give useful item descriptions instead of the old BLOODBORNE logo which also makes it much less of an issue.

I recommend you give it a try honestly, I think you might find it's not that bad. Sure in the beginning you might die a lot so will see loading more often but that isn't really an issue once you get the hang of it or if you are already used to these games.

Your original PS4 now supports HDR, but no games currently make use of it

xFiReStOrMx

Great update over all with 4.0, but as with everything Sony/PS they always mess something up. One of the first things I noticed is you can no longer view what DLC you own + have installed for your games.

Also perhaps a server issue but I cannot get the games info to come up any more (which is the other way to see the DLC I refer too) by pressing down on the D-Pad when a game is highlighted.

This is a pretty strange thing to have removed, especially since when in the library, it does put an icon over the game and a number representing the DLC you own for that title.

Now to see what DLC you own (but NOT if it's installed i might add) is to goto it's Store page.

The problem with this is now that what about DLC that doesn't appear in the store?? Theres plenty of it, things like pre-order bonus DLC etc.

In the past you would highlight the game, press Down on the D-Pad all the way to the bottom (forget what it was called) and it you were able to bring up the menu showing all DLC, wether it was installed, and if it wasn't selecting it would download and install it.

Also it seems like a lot of stuff is slightly less responsive now, and you get the "please wait" with all the PS icons showing a lot.

60minute game recordings is awesome though! Though I don't really understand why there has to be a set limit. Why can't I just press the record button and have it go until I stop it? As long as I have enough HDD space why can't this be a feature exactly I do not know.

I have other issues with the update but this post is long enough already.

The battle to fix Britain's internet heats up

Ever since "up-to 8meg" was introduced (which before hand I had 512k) I have been struggling to maintain 4meg.

Thankfully a few years ago the Scottish Government started an initiative to get fibre to the whole country. I was sceptical at first but when I read there were plenty of small villages and such as remote as the highlands getting fibre I was super excited Christ even parts of the Shetlands are Fibre enabled already!!.

and YAY! Recently my TINY little village was FTTC enabled 80meg estimated.

I have yet to get round to switching though as the hole 18month contract all the providers have put me off a little.. but hey its must better than my crappy UNSTABLE 4meg!!

Really hope the rest of the UK follows suit AND that we can all get much higher speeds. There is so many countries that can get gigabit, and countries like South Korea, Japan, the Netherlands and much of Europe to name but a few put us to absolute SHAME!

For any Scottish readers checkout https://www.scotlandsuperfast.com if I didn't a while back I would not have had a clue it was coming here. When it did arrive there was no news of it, only a small sticker on the cabinet that I happened to notice one day stating Fibre is now here.

Resident Evil 7's demo isn't part of the full game

xFiReStOrMx

2 years ago

I know I will most likely get downvoted to hell (which seems to be the norm now on Eurogamer these days.. posting your opinion or even FACTS can get you massive downvotes) Anyway my opinions..

I'm currently playing RE: Revelations and loving it (even though I HATED it at first because the aim is awful and the lack of laser sight was a s slight annoyance, also I played RE Rev2 on PS4 first which had great aim, ability to run and was 60fps) but it didn't take long for me to start loving it.

It was definitely going back to it's roots (kinda like RE4). Movement is slightly cumbersome, there is not that much ammo lying around (unless you scan every inch of ever room with the very annoying Genesis to find the hidden shineys, then you will end the game with plenty of ammo)and there is Infernal mode (which isn't that hard on NG+ with all the best upgrades) but starting it as New game is absolutely SURVIVAL horror.

This demo felt absolutely nothing like Resident Evil. It's more like PT than RE... It's all horror and supernatural-like, which Resi is definitely not (it's called BIOHAZARD after all).

I know this is not part of the actual RE7 game, but we must assume it at least gives a sense of what the game will actually be like. I really do hope I am wrong (but it's clearly going to remain first person).

I do not want a first person supernatural type horror Resident Evil. That is what this all boils down to.

It does look great however, and ran at 60fps and felt really smooth.

This should have been a spin-off or better yet a totally new IP, not the next numbered game of the series!

Sony unlocks more CPU power for PS4 game developers

xFiReStOrMx

3 years ago

@Moz While what you say does sound logical, and I am certainly no expert, but the OS isn't just called/in use when not in game. It's always running in the backround, running well everything the PS4 does. It's not a case of when a game is running the os isn't doing anything, then when you press the PS button the OS kicks in.

Thisis good news though since the PS4 has not only a weak CPU, but the weaker one. I'd like to see Sony also up the clock rate if it was at all possible.
