"Bring me that horizon"


I normally enjoy reading how Digital Foundry articles. This Digital Foundry article is very confused because it doesn't know whether it wants to be a game review or tech analysis. They should sticm to one. #1.1.3

Tweeting a hashtag might make individuals feel they are doing something but it achieves nothing.

However what I am seeing on Gaf and other websites is gamers who have cancelled their preorders and POSTING SCREENSHOTS OF THEIR CANCELLED ORDERS. If Ubisoft president Yves Guillemont receives statistics from retailers showing a mass of cancellations I think he will pay attention! #1.1.49

Is it too soon for a price drop to $299 / £299? #2.2

Really clever title to the news.

It's not: 'Microsoft BUY Mojang' because it makes it sound like MS are the greedy bad guys buying up the indie companies in an involuntary takeover.

It is: "Mojang JOIN Microsoft" which has a much more friendly angle and makes it sound more like Mojang are voluntarily joining a team.

Clever stuff press releases! #1.1.13

This game deserves to be released on Blu-ray. #1.1.3

I said: "It will be Christmas (Holiday) 2016. Which would have given Black Tusk almost three years to work on the game"

Castillo said: "how does you're date equal 3 years."

Microsoft acquired Gears at the end of 2013 believed to be a month before announced. So the end of 2016 equates to 3 years. It's only maths! ; ) #2.2.2

It will be Christmas (Holiday) 2016. Which would have given Black Tusk almost three years to work on the game. Given that they were already making a game they will be able to use that technology and research to build Gears. #2.2

I won't make any statement about the validity of the Eurogamer review score because I haven't played it yet.

inFamous First Light is a big DLC pack for inFamous: Second Son. What Sony have done is made it work as a standalone title so that people who didn't buy the full game can still play this (and hopefully lead to more sales for them). Recently Ubisoft also did this with the Freedom Cry DLC for AC IV.

However I think it w... #1.2.2

Part of the issue the reviewer has with the game is that he is not sure whether to categorise it as a 'pretty generous' DLC or a trimmed down full title.

Whilst it does seem to be a reasonable portion of gaming it would be silly to think this should be compared to full priced PS4 games just because it is standalone DLC. However the reviewer's confusion seems to be a factor in how Eurogamer graded it. #1.1.2

Geeze some of these screenshots! That banana thong thing... Gotta love the Japanese developer taste in fashion. #1.1.7

It doesn't have to be either / or.
What I loved about The Last of Us Remastered was that it was in 1080p AND 60fps. Now I understand that it is a last-gen game with up-ressed graphics but that didn't stop it from looking great. The big test will be Uncharted 4 which has been purposefully designed for PS4. It will have a lot more graphical effects in it than TLOU:R but if that is also 1080p 60fps then we know it is possible as long as it is a top-tier studio with resources. #2.1

I would expect it is the fastest selling title on PSN. It's a top quality game, arguably the best PS4 game available and cheaper than other digital titles. I'm glad to see this doing so well especially as many buyers are new to the PlayStation platform and never got to play it last gen. #1

It is a big core title and there is a ton of respect for the first game. There was also a big boost in sales when Mario Kart was released so install numbers are growing. With a good marketing budget Platinum can do it! #1.1.1

Peter Molyneux 'I take the bullying for the sake of making a great game'

Is he mad? He launched a Kickstarter for Godus and said nothing about it being a pay-to-win gem game, in effect deceiving his backers by not revealing the true nature of the game. The PC beta had gems that cost $50!!! Then quite rightly media and websites pulled him up about it. This was not bullying, this was making him accountable to the people who invested in his business. He hypocritically th... #1.1.3

Hi Alexious and WillGuitarGuy.

Please could you take the time to read my article because the title is just a talking point that discusses the exclusive If you jump to the conclusion you should be able to read that.

Thanks! #1.2

Ten Million SOLD to gamers.
Not Five million to retail (3.5 million to gamers).

Well deserved because Sony put gamers first when creating the PlayStation 4. #1.1.8

Dynasty2021 "I love TLOU but there's no way I would pay that amount for the same game, just for an FPS boost."

Forgive me if I state the obvious but don't buy it! No one is holding a gun to your head. Your opinion is entirely valid for you, however there are those that want to make their own purchase decisions and some, many, do want to buy this. For the many PS4 owners who are new to the PlayStation platform this is a great option to have. #11.1

I think Reggie is talking about Titanfall. Great mechanics but I'd love Titanfall 2 to have a single player campaign. #2.3

Glad to see this actually. The PlayRoom has been a bit of a sleeper hit. I bought my PS4 at launch and have enjoyed looking into the living rooms of people from all around the world talking to camera and giving me a glimpse of their lives. But by God have I got sick of that background music! The text boards will be useful for showing messages. Hopefully this will give it some variety and uniqueness for each live broadcast. In this age of sharing the PlayStation Camera offers cool features to... #1.1
