  1. Its suppossedly faster. NVMe against SATA offer minimal benefits in pc gaming at a higher cost. Obviously there is something going on here. It could with Zen 2, AMD debut new PCI Express options and a new NVME successor.
  2. https://www.wired.com/story/exclusive-sony-next-gen-console/ Fun read. Some brief points. Custom Next Gen Ryzen (2nd Generation AMD) 8 core CPU. Custom Navi GPU (Next Gen AMD GPU). Full Ray-tracing support. Not just limited to GPU. Some new form of even faster SSD (Faster than PCIEx4 currently on PC's apparently!). Current PSVR will be forward and backward compatible. New PSVR also being worked on. Backwards Compatiblity with PS4 is in. Spiderman and Red Dead demoed with ultra fast loading times (from 15 to 0.8 seconds for Spiderman). Ray Tracing will also be used for audio. New revolutionary 3d Audio chip. 8K output capable. Possibility of cross gen titles. Death Stranding mentioned as a possiblity. (Gran Turismo 7 has also been hinted outside of this article). Same business model as PS4. Physical Media and Digital. £799 post Brexit launch price here we go!
  3. Apex Legends

    Yeah its a good game! I still hate the stupid armor and shield stuff at times.
  4. Anthem (PS4, Xbox One, PC)

    So yeah the private demo was awful. Second public demo better. I wanted to keep playing. But the game has lots of design issues! Stuff that Destiny actually handles well (Bungie probably playtested and remade aspects thoroughly). Its a good game overall but could be better. IMO it needs more time. Too many loading screens without doing anything (Destiny lets use micromanage stuff, access menus etc.) Having said that the game's strengths are pretty good in places and there arent many game games like this. The Division 2 beta sold me more on Anthem than the Anthem demo itself. Division 2 was super generic. The Division 2 is like an open world game with online tagged on.The shooting machanics are bad compared to Anthem... The story is super lazy and kind of like right wing propaganda. The opneing has you run into the Whitehouse. Like a generic camp in an open world game... Anthem has great art, interesting presentation, great graphics, good music, nice controls etc. There is alot to like too. Ultimately it makes me appreciate Destiny a whole lot more.
  5. Battlefield V — 20th November 2018

    This is on sale so tempted to get it.
  6. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    1300+ PS4 games discounted. Got Soul Calibur ondisk from a sale. bomberman in the digital. Looking for recommendations.
  7. Battlefield V — 20th November 2018

    I'll try to pick this up this year hopefully. Black Friday time. The beta was pretty good on PS4. The powerhouse PC had afew random crashes and I couldnt be arsed to figure it out.
  8. I think lots of these sort of slower open world game devs get a free pass or bonus points. See Dragion Age Inquistion, Witcher 3, GTA, Elder Scrolls, Assassin's Creed etc. Padding and bad/slow combat ahoy. Its more of a trend.
  9. Spider-Man (PS4)

    Thats insane. It somehow beat out Assassin's Creed in the US. I would not have ever imagined that. I am not even half way thorugh the game. Definately Insomniac's moment.
  10. Spider-Man (PS4)

    I am low on time but will play with some audio video upgrades. Maybe even 4K. The start of the game is great though.
  11. Fortnite

    Sounds like what many of us predicted in the beginning. Good to see they took the time to work on impact to business etc. Good research takes a long time. I think they will lead as usual and from a more stronger/more informed position. They cant look to Apple/Google for shortcuts. We also now know that console purchases arent exactly shared. Which was a big question mark for moneitisation. No doubt game devs and pubs will want to undermine the platform holders cuts. Playstation's current Crossplay position wasnt clear nor fixed on PC/PS4 purchases since the PS2 days. Some games have full purchase sharing others do not. So it will be interesting to see hwo things turn out.
  12. Playstation Plus Free Games

    With Destiny the best purchase is the collection pack. Which is already cheap nowadays. The plus game will let newbies decide if they like parts of the game. It is one of the best experiences this gen period.
  13. https://kotaku.com/many-big-games-now-have-two-release-dates-and-the-earl-1829123098 And surprise surprise its the same lootbox companies.
  14. Destiny 2

    Agreed, I think that is the big mistake they made. Dropping Destiny 1. I am sure many companies have been watching. I hope Bungie keep it all going... Perhaps console games still neeed sequels as expansions are alien still? Expansions can be bigger than sequels. Disagree on many points especially the value of the game. I think its exceptional value and I mostly play the Crucible but enjoy the other activities too. Warframe is far more grindy in my eyes. Lots of filler content. But it is free to play.
