There's some cussing, but nowhere near as bad and often as the GTA series.  I haven't seen anything regarding sex, other than some descriptions when you profile someone.  I heard you can spy on someone having sex but don't see anything. 
Gratuitous violence and murder but no sex? America is going to love this game!

While I don't really want to keep the next gen graphics issue alive, I did find that the this video comparing it to GTA IV is a bit disheartening.  Was R* that far ahead of the curve that even now, their techniques and attention to detail haven't been adopted?
Wow that is pretty crap. That was GTA 4 and not 5? The shadows in watchdogs are atrocious (according to that video)

Talk of it in the Watchdogs thread...

(I'll suspect no one is seeing this since I'm sure I'm ignored by everyone).

why is this thread being bumped?  All I see is the post from Razgon?
Hey Caine, what's with the empty quote? And you posted after Razgon so you must have bumped the thread! That's a bit odd of you.

Oh and the review embargo being until release portends bad things.  Probably going to score high 70s.
I'm guessing, the game is good but the hacking is rinse and repeat and the game runs like crap. Hence the embargo.

Interesting. Problem being is that you can't expect that extra processing power to be available to use in the first place. And people might be rather upset that the console without Kinect would get extra FPS/graphical details because they have the power to spare.
This is what I'm wondering. What a middle finger it would be to the first adopters to end up having a less powerful console than everyone who was smart enough to wait.

An article on Forbes States that the PS4 will run at 900p and the Xbone will run at 792p. Both at 30fps. Oops.

I think the real reason is not because you can get Netflix on your toaster these days but because a particular toaster  called the PS4 is outselling the Xbox one by a wide margin.

The previous post mentioned Sony having the best graphics on any console so that's what I was referring to. Obviously the PC will be superior.
170  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Re: Orbis. aka PlayStation 4? The rumors are put to rest. on: May 11, 2014, 03:02:31 PM
I think it's pretty obvious that the PS4 will have the best graphics. The real question is is there enough of a disparity that people can actually tell a difference? Probably not.

I can't think of a word and it's killing me. I suppose it happens to all of us from time to time but I feel like after living in Japan for 9 years I'm losing some of my vocabulary.
Anyways, the word is a verb and it's often  used when an entity gains a lot of new territory. Before they can continue gaining new territory they have to process what they've taken and make sure that their gains are secure.
What's the word that I can't get?

I sometimes watch LPs on YouTube.  OneF Jef is pretty hilarious in his videos. Sometimes, especially when it comes to strategy games or simulations that take a heck of a lot of work to get into, it's far more enjoyable to watch someone else playing the game then having to go through all the hard work yourself.  Something like Assassins Creed I would never watch an LP of.

Back on topic this is one Eco post I can get behind. The guy is singlehandedly trying to start WW3. Right now he's flexing his muscle to see how far he can go before the US and the rest of Europe responds to his expansion. If he invades Ukraine in force we could be in trouble.

This doesn't even include the laundry list of things he has done to his own country to prevent Democracy and retain his power.
He certainly isn't a nice person but Russia has reasons to feel slighted. Technically the West is in his backyard, not the other way around.

My point is that all the "Titanfail" comments and "MS desperation price cuts" are just silly. The real desperation seems to be on the part of the PS4 crowd to somehow paint the XB1 (and by extension, Titanfall) as some sort of system in dire trouble, when it's clearly not. In fact, given the higher price point and limited number of markets, it's doing extremely well.

Here's a great article pointing out why sales numbers can't be taken at surface value.
It's funny, I read that article before and disagreed with almost every point.
Ironically his first point that 7 million minus 5 million doesn't make a 2 million is the most correct-it's actually much worse because the Xbox totals are only sold-in.
1. Regions. PS4 certainly has an advantage here but how much of a factor is it? Is releasing in Japan or all the other countries traditionally weak Xbox territory (ie all the other countries that aren't in the original 13) really going to boost their sales by that much?
2. $100 price difference.  Absolutely.
3. Production constraints. Huh? If anything this makes the numbers look worse for MS because they are absolutely not impacted. Sony on the other hand clearly are.
4. Yes, both consoles are clearly selling considerably better than last gen. That only matters though if MS is concerned with competing against the PS3. Absolute totals mean nothing - everything is relative.
5. Titanfall wasn't supposed to change the sales figures. Again, HUH? The Titanfall mantra has been all we've heard since when? August?
182  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Re: Orbis. aka PlayStation 4? The rumors are put to rest. on: April 19, 2014, 11:39:12 PM
They also basically gave the game away for free so less impressive but still relatively impressive.

It is if you don't want to just throw money at the problem and get crappy service all around for your trouble.

What problem would that be, exactly?

Most people probably dont have companies paying for half of their cable/Internet bill. $140 a month for 12 months is a pretty significant amount in the yearly budget.

Brad Wardell (Galactic Civilizations/ Elemental Materials) claims that the DirectX 12 update will double the performance of the Xbox One:

“Xbox One is the biggest beneficiary; it effectively gives every Xbox One owner a new GPU that is twice as fast as the old one,” he added.

Microsoft Confirms DX12 Will Improve Xbox One Performance

Now obviously it remains to be seen how big those improvements are, but this is good news.
I can't comment on how it will affect performance but it's basically two years out. That is a looong time.

191  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Re: [PC/360/XB1]Respawn's Titanfall on: March 20, 2014, 11:31:38 PM
I wonder if Titanfall 2 will come to the PS4? Titanfall is practically the sole reason for the Xbone having sold any units. I wonder if Microsoft will give a blank check for it in order to get complete exclusivity? I'm guessing Respawn isn't a publicly traded company so they can't go hostile take over route but they could offer the guys in charge an insane amount of money.

I just finished A Quiet American. Amazing, amazing book. I wonder if this book is on the curriculum in American high schools? (I assume the author is American). It feels amazingly prescient. How was this book written before the Vietnam War started? It's a quick read so I highly recommend anyone who hasn't read it to go out and get it.

Currently reading Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Had no real idea what this was about before I started but I guess it's going to be one long drug trip? As someone who has never gotten high, I find it a little difficult to identify with the characters and imagine what they're experiencing. I am finding myself a little skeptical that anyone could continually take so many different drugs at the same time and not die of an overdose though. I wonder if the movie is any good?

Early reports are that the game should take 10-12 hours per playthrough (assuming you want to play through once as good and once as evil). Full platinum ~30 hours.

I wish it was a little longer but I think it will still be worth the money seeing as it's the only thing I have to play on the PS4. smile

Dead Nation is fun in short bursts but honestly I'm a full AAA game kind of guy. These little indies just don't do anything for me.
Ten hours to play through the game twice? That is short. I'm starting with the first two so I hope they're both as short so that I can get though them.

Any initial sales numbers yet?

I haven't seen anything official for US yet, but in the UK it's credited for increasing XB1 hardware sales almost 100%.
That would be appropriate considering that it's responsible for almost 100% of sales of all xboxes (with perhaps the exception of ATB). smile

It'll be fine. This time we have the power of the cloud. Plus it's the beginning of the console lifespan so there are only about 4 million potential owners out there rather than 80 million (referring to the Xbone of course).

It's speculated that the XB1 hardware was built from the ground up with DX12 in mind.

< EIGHT paragraphs of text letting all Bone users know how it's not going to help them>

If you don't want to be seen as a participant of the console war, stop being a champion warrior of one side even to the extent of coming into the thread of the console YOU DON'T OWN and posting an 8 paragraph essay about it.   

I'm sure this post will be replied to with:


OMGz I'm a victim and the only European highly skilled programmer and thus the only true authority to speak on these matters TOTALLY neutral party who is being picked on by the TRUE console war brutes!   See?  I've even tried to extend the olive branch in a couple threads but the others are not civilized enough to take my crap...err... I mean come to the table....

Did I cover everything?

Edit to add:  Oh right.  I forgot the couple of fellow-PS4 non-Xbox One owners that come in after you to pat you on the back.   How could I allow such an oversight?

I would kindly request you stop being an oversensitive troll.

TiLT has his moments of fanboyism. This was not one of them.
He can't be an oversensitive troll. He owns BOTH consoles. That precludes the possibility.
