Wednesday Chat, November 6


It's a fairly quiet week, Call of Duty: Ghosts has already been released and only another two titles, both published by Nintendo, will join it.

In terms of gaming news its also been pretty quiet so far, with news on next generation consoles being reduced to speculation about which on is better and other news mainly being in the form of trailers for upcoming games and patches for current titles.

Thankfully our readers always find something to talk about, so let's do just that.

Let's Chat!

The first episode of Ryse: Son of Rome - The Fall aired last night. You can check it out over at the Xbox Wire website. Haven't watched it yet, probably will check it out tonight. Anybody else intend to, or has watched it?

Last night was a good night. COD turned up so the shiny blue PS4 box was stared at lovingly for the majority of the night. I then realised I had another packet and it was the Man City shirt I won via the FM competition. So I put that on in preparation to watch the game when a copy of FM14 also fell out of the packet. A sneaky Brucie Bonus. So the rest of this week will be spent trying not to be sucked in to Football Manager like I have done every year at this time...

Is the case the same size as PS3 cases then does it come with a manual? I reckon manuals will become extinct this generation.

Slightly larger than a PS3 case but only because it's lost the rounded edges. And there is no manual, just an ad for a season pass and other games. Here is a picture. Should be visible as my FB profile is public https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10151995718805586&set=a.476246555585.262700.505385585&type=1&theater

Hmm, now I look at the picture it may be a tad smaller, seeing as you can see the PS3 game case behind it

Cheers looks roughly the same size as the ps3 smaller then standard DVD cases. Might get my first PS4 game next week according to the release date attached to it.

@ shopto any idea when you are going to start processing the payments for the PS4? I have also ordered the Xbox One would be good to know asap so I can work out what I can afford with my wages, hope it isnt too soon after Xbox One as I will need a week or two to build up some £££ for the mega bundle and a game or two!

Why do GAME get all the best exclusive editions? https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=538036299604442&set=a.361015913973149.81185.351440504930690&type=1&theater

I would assume they would process your payment when they get your console ready for delivery. So the day before posting, which should be the day before release date.

Game seems to get a lot of Special Editions does not seem fair after they messed everyone around a few years back I am suprised publishers give them so many exclusives.

Last night was awesome. For some reason the servers for the DKS 2 Network Test were up so I got about 4 hours of footage from that

just seen a video that conclusively proves that COD does just copy paste from old games LOL http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VzfSp6Zer8k

1080p does not seem like a good idea after all for CoD. Frame rate issues. Ooops http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-24834842

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AAgc43e-zp4&feature=c4-overview&list=UUy1Ms_5qB I'm guessing the bad Frame-rate on the PS4 isn't down to the Hardware as much as it is down to being badly optimised.

Good article on the COD using old assets http://www.gamesradar.com/call-duty-ghosts-recycles-old-cutscenes-and-it-really-doesnt-matter/ Also Just got an email from microsoft saying that they are giving me Killer Instinct with all the character inlockes

All the xbox fan boys trying to bounce back over a few frame chat issues chill out it's going to be patched it the first batch of ps4 games to run at 1080p obviously there will be slight issues . Enjoy your 720p (yes I've given in ans fanboyed)

If its patched and working for launch then there is no issue if no then there is just like it would be with the xbox one. I tried watching that video Nox but that total biscuit guy has a really annoying voice.

it will be patched by release, thats the reason why people are reviewing/testing it so they can patch it with it being a new console release they'd be stupid to just release it straight up and expect there to be no issues.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
The testing should have been done long ago before the game went gold, unless Acti were making them rush. Still no excuse. Btw Tootell that's not why people review games
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
Yeah people review to review them. I agree with Nox the testing really should be done in house before it even went gold.

Regarding the PS4/COD Ghost framerate issues. Apparently one of IW devs Tweeted last night saying .. "Sony put too much pressure on to get the game running at 1080p/60fps" ... also if reports today from IGN and EDGE are to be believed a few more of Sony's games have some framerate issues, again they say Sony have put pressure on for the 1080p/60fps, it's not that the hardware can't do it but some devs need more time though to get to grips with the system but the MS fanboys could be having the last laugh if when COD Ghosts review for the Xbox One says it's running smoother at 720p, that will be interesting to see. Personally I don't see any major issues, nothing an update/patch can't fix but Sony need to relax hassle the developers. I still can't wait for both consoles, going to be an exciting time in the run up to Christmas :-)

I know its not Nox do you think i'm fucking thick or something? but obviously they're going to pick up on things like that if its the beginning of a new generation. people are making a mountain out of a mole hill.

Any of you ladies and gentleman taking time off work ( or maybe develop a serious case of flu lol ) when you get your console/s? I've managed to get 5 days off from November 23rd so should get some quality gaming in and another 4 days off 3 days after the PS4 launches so even more quality time. I said to my friend today how time flies, it seems like only yesterday Microsoft and Sony revealed their consoles and we had months to wait, 2 weeks from Friday Xbox One, 3 weeks from Friday PS4, I feel like a big kid with Christmas fast approaching :-)

Not bad Nox, I've pretty much depleted my Amazon vouchers, with all the games the last couple of months and half a dozen graphic novels all totaling up to around £300 , but I've got plenty of time to save up before any games I want next year, and I'm close to cashing up on £95 worth.

So, just cancelled my Xbox one day one Forza bundle from here. Already regretting it, and after seeing the new DR3 footage I really want to play it now, but I just can't justify forking out £500 to play Dead Rising 3 and Forza 5, I will likely play them for a week then go back to PC and GW2 so it's a bit much really. Just going to have to wait till after Christmas and hope they are a bit cheaper, maybe even a bundle without Kinect.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
