ARK II has been announced, the trailer is totally cringe(They got Vin Diesel in it...) so I won't subject you to that but I think a new game is the best way to go.

The engine for the current game is heavily modified and just awful to work with. There are many bugs which are just can't be fixed because of the engine, so starting fresh makes complete sense to me.

Hoping for a more polished version of what we have now, with a few extra things and different maps, then perhaps future updates can bring in all new mechanics and ideas.

Any Gears fans on here ? Gears 5 on series X is really good. The enhanced version really does make a difference.

Never played any of the Gears games however always thought they looked rather enjoyable. Gears 5 is supposed to be an excellent game so I will most likely end up playing at some point. Do you recommend I play from the beginning (don't have much time) or just play Gears 5 for a good experience?

The story is pretty good but you could easy play gears 5 and enjoy the game as a stand alone. Well worth it in my eyes.

EA Games are trying to trump the Take-Two takeover of Codemasters.

Great, two awful companies bidding over a half decent one.

Yeah two of the most greedy microtransaction companys fighting over codemasters,I can already see the next f1 game, £10 for extra grip tyres ,tracks hidden behind a paywall etc

Well, they introduced Pitcoins a year or two ago in the F1 games, so I can see Take-Two or EA taking full advantage of that.

Unlock career mode - 20,000 pitcoins.
Unlock 'My Team' Career mode - 20,000 pitcoins.
Unlock Multiplayer - 500,000 pitcoins.
Unlock 2nd gear - 1,000,000 pitcoins.

Greedy bukyaks.

After years of waiting Cyberpunk has been released. Word of warning DO NOT buy this game for Xbox One or PS4. It is an absolute mess on those consoles. Xbox One X and PS4 Pro are passable and obviously it looks and runs a bit better on PS5 and Series X. I'm probably going to end up waiting for the next gen update myself!

Ordered it for my Series X, I'll be honest not that impressed at all.

shame !!

11 Dec 2020 15:11:12
Yeah I share your thoughts, the game is quite evidently unfinished and I genuinely believe that Covid-19 probably did botch the final year of development. I'm also on Series X and wasn't blown away by the graphical fidelity. Just got to wait for that next gen patch, hopefully by then the game will have been fixed and polished also. Seems a no brainer for me to wait a while.

Disappointed however at the lack of response by CD Projekt Red. They haven't acknowledged any of the glaring issues in the game as of yet. Hopefully it's just a matter of time.

Its a real shame, I have Gears 5 and it looks pretty dam good far better then Cyberpunk that's for sure.

This is typical of a long time hyped game. They add too much pressure and inevitably it will collapse in on its self.

I don't doubt that it's a good game under the layers of bugs and combat issues, but I won't be purchasing until at least 6 months after release.

Codemasters has been bought by Take-Two.

This means that any game released by Codemasters will now be 'pay to win', so we can expect to have to pay extra for the better F1 teams, etc.

What a great day to be a gamer.

I haven't got one but a mate has and I have to say the series x is WOW.

Massive difference.

I would love one if I could get my hands on one. Plenty on ebay but no way I'm paying 800 -1000 quid.

the new final fantasy looks amazing tbh. i'm a big fan of ff7 and the remake was great too, especially if your a fan of the original.

ff16 looks like they're combining the battle system of ff7 into a medieval setting of ff. always loved medieval games since skyrim.

Just flicking through some retro games site and does anyone remember marble madness on the Nintendo had some good fun on that.

{Ed001's Note - I have never had a Nintendo, other than the daughter's Wii.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

07 Sep 2020 19:39:48
Yeah I had a wii too, mind you I think the only console I haven’t owned is the saga Dreamcast.

Anyway back to the Wii I think that was Nintendo’s worse release. You haven’t lived Ed if you haven’t had a go on Mario kart

{Ed001's Note - I have played that, boring as hell sorry. Dreadful game. It is like things like FIFA, only good for playing with a bunch of mates for a laugh as it has no value as a game in of itself for me.}

Never actually understood the purpose of Nintendo's consoles post N64. It's like they want to be 3 different things, a fitness centre, a childs toy and a gameboy.

Bought Ghost of Tsushima off Playstation store for around £37, if anyone wants to know how I will provide a response detailing how. Just thought I'd say that so far it is absolutely brilliant. Bare in mind this is around 5 hours in. Reminds me very much of the experience of playing The Witcher 3 for the first time except with a much better combat system. Would highly recommend.

{Ed001's Note - is it an RPG then?}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

22 Jul 2020 01:24:48
Yes it is Ed001. Similar quest system to games such as Witcher and more recently AC Origins/Odyssey. Albeit with better combat, graphics and story compared to AC. Wonderful soundtrack also with two composers, you can tell believe me. Very enjoyable (after more playtime today) and just discovered duels that are very similar to old Samurai movies from 60's, 70's and 80's.

{Ed001's Note - that sounds like my kind of game, I looked at it and it didn't suggest it was an RPG. Have to be honest, I find Assassin's Creed games to be terrible to play so I am glad it is better than them.}

Id like to know how please mate.

TheDarkKnight. It involves firstly creating an account that is set up in one of the 10 US states that does not have sales tax, so for example Orego or Alaska. I recommend for the future also setting up a canadian PSN account(as their sales are much cheaper than UK, got Days Gone for £12 when it was £35 on UK store). After this you should then buy US Credit for PSN store. The site I used, called GAMIVO, was selling $20 for around £13 with a sale on that would then take a further 10% off. Which meant you buy 3× $20 with the price working out at around £35-37. Add those codes onto your US PSN account and simply buy the game from your wallet for $60 which you've paid £35-37 for. Job Done. Remember to set your home PS4 onto your main account. Then you can play the game on your main account whilst having bought it on another. Hope that's helpful. Other websites such as CDKeys, G2A and Eneba also sell the currency. Any questions feel free to reply to this.

Command and Conquer remaster.

So this came out in May and I thought I'd give it a little time before bringing it up. Mainly because I was so hyped for it that my opinion and review' would have been bias.

The one thing to know about a remastered game, is that it's meant to just be a clone with upgraded graphics. However, that means that the plethora of bugs and issues that was in the original game, are also in the remaster...

The pathfinding of the AI is just, stupid.
steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2131322985
As you can see from this screenshot, the AI has no clue what social distancing is...

Also, when large armies are moving, it causes the game's texture loading script to completely collapse. This means your input is delayed by as much as 90 SECONDS. This is totally game breaking and means you can be defeated without even challenging your enemies army...

Also there was a big balancing issue in the single player campaign for some reason, Mission 8A on Tiberian Dawn and 12C on Red Alert were actually impossible to complete lol.

Thankfully they released a patch yesterday which fixed most of the issues, but some still persist.
I think the game is heading in the right direction, but there is a way to go yet.

For £17.99 you could buy much worse.

the PS5 looks set to be rather large as compared to the previous versions and against its competitor, the xbox series x.

are we seeing a return to a superior console or atleast somewhat close to pc performance? i know the specs have been released but some times the specs alone aren't enough. i'm guessing the size is also due to the cooling needed for the high end parts. would like to hear some opinions!

Believable0 Unbelievable0

23 Jun 2020 22:50:00
Maybe. But don't expect it to last long lol. PC's are always upgrading, optimising and setting new records.

You may need to look on youtube at some of the enthusaist builds, they are comparable to super computers some of them lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2020 00:27:42
sure PCs are better but games like fifa are far superior on console. anyway were talking about the ps5 here, as its common knowledge pcs are superior when u combine with high end components.

havent found much time to be on my pc lately but i'm going to have to build a new one soon. mines already 6 years old haha.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jun 2020 22:19:18
Actually there may be a complete change to online PC gaming in the next few years, as there are some services that will allow you to play high end games on low end PC's. Services such as 'Nvidia GeForce Now' and 'Google Stadia' are growing their list of available games and the technology is improving monthly.

This will negate the need to buy an expensive hardware just to play the latest games. Could be interesting, especially if it's made available to console too.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2020 11:59:07
i think were far away from that though. at least at a global scale. those that u mentioned haven't really had a successful launch and imo it only suits couch gaming.

any other game (especially online) that even remotely leads to latency issues, will not be a good option to play on stadia. that will be its downfall until the world is equipped with good internet. i'm from Malaysia, with 300mbps internet (pretty decent for home use where i'm from) but also consider that most games don't run their server where i am. itll probably be singapore/hong kong and that affects us alot.

'share screening' as from stadia would multiply the input delays. good idea, but maybe the world is not ready for it yet.

{Ed001's Note - even with good internet there will always be a delay, so they will only ever be any good for casual gamers. Hardcore competitive gamers will always need their own rig to run. The issue with the PS5 will be the price I expect.}

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2020 17:21:37
agreed Tris, i think that's why they went with an additional option without the blue ray player. it is absolutely to make bank on the psstore.

i suspect they would rather take a loss on the console to sell higher volume, as those who purchase the cheaper model, will be spending their money on the psstore to get games. brilliant decision if u ask me, console lasts for years and they'll make more money that way in the long run.

{Ed001's Note - I have never understood why they never went down that route a long time ago.}

Agree0 Disagree0
