    Anthem - February 22nd

    The PC Gamer review in progress is really spot on actually. 1. The ‘story’ sucks 2. Fort Tarsis is a crap idea (+ the frame rate on console in this area must be about 15 fps) 3. The actual gameplay (combat & flying) is certainly good 4. But, the repetition becomes aparent after only a few hours 5. He’s saying the loading times on PC are bad, I would agree it’s the same on console I’m on the infamous Tombs quest currently. 15 chests required but it only counts if you open it before the rest of your squad. What a terribly thought out requirement and I’m not sure I want to continue. A grind is a grind but that’s just a dumb idea to say the least.

    Anthem - February 22nd

    The story and cutscenes in this are woeful. The importance of the actual story is debatable to be fair but it’s a load of crap anyway. Every character is a generic stereotype. At least, for better or worse, Destiny had a bit of charm. The Division also mostly lets you get on with things. Anthem has numerous tedious cutscenes of talking heads spouting nonsense. They’re mostly skippable if you’re not grouped but I have pressed B too relentlessly for the game and it crashed.

    Anthem - February 22nd

    My PC has a 1050ti, i5 and 8gb ram and it certainly was more playable during the alpha than the full Xbox One X version. The console version is not unplayable, it’s just a bit weird that it still has the same sub standard frame rate as the beta. I find it a bit off putting.

    Anthem - February 22nd

    I played the closed beta on my fairly budget PC and got a fluctuating 40 to 60 fps frame rate. That was absolutely fine and it’s fair to say it wasn’t exactly spectacular looking. On both the beta and full game on the Xbox One X I’d suggest it’s miles away from 30 fps in the hub area and it’s certainly sub 30 fps at times in the open world. Not good. Having played the alpha, beta and full game now I’m not entirely sure if I’ll continue beyond the 10 hours of EA access. I haven’t saw anything to get it’s hooks into me. Reminds me of The Division actually. It certainly had a far more limited lifespan in comparison to my crushing addiction to Destiny. This feels similar. On the alpha it felt new and exciting but I’ve yet to come across anything really different in regard to that opening gameplay loop.

    Anthem - February 22nd

    Yeah, the frame rate in the hub on the Xbox One X is still really low. It’s like ploughing through treacle.

    Crackdown 3 - February 15th, 2019

    Seems pretty good and very faithful to the original game. The neon everywhere lends itself well to 4K and HDR on the Xbox One X. It’s hard to know what to do to improve the Crackdown formula. Evidently the devs just paid homage to Crackdown 1. That’s cool, I just want to climb about and collect green orbs. I suppose this all just confirms what a legendary game the original was.

    Bellator has signed a deal to be shown on Sky.

    The Division 2

    This feels remarkably like the first game. Obviously anyone that loved the original is going to enjoy this.

    Covington thinks he’s a popular fighter but he’s not really much of a draw. If he never fought again there wouldn’t be many clamouring for his return. There is no disputing his ability but he’s not going to sell any ppv’s. Ultimately Ben Askren has also stole his thunder. Elite wrestler that likes to wind people up, although Ben comes across as really intelligent whereas Colby is just a load of nonsensical sound bites.

    Apex Legends - Battle Royale by Respawn Entertainment

    There are some nice ideas in this. The ping system is a bit of a game changer. There are clearly similarities to Blackout but it feels like an evolution of that formula. I can’t say I’ll play it for more than a few nights but I’ll give it a go anyway. I like the PUBG multiple map format rather than Blackout and Fortnites changing of a solitary map. The fact Respawn have clearly given the map in this a name suggests they’ll follow PUBG’s lead.

    Epic trying to beat Steam the wrong way?

    There’s so much more to Steam than new releases. So many years of games, with all the user reviews and relevant forums. Their attempt at recommendations and the curators that can be followed. I don’t particularly have a good grasp of their trading card system but I like unlocking them for no real reason. Achievements as well, although it’s been many years since those held any interest to me. The whole thing is absolutely light years of what is on consoles never mind the unbelievably bare bones Epic Store. I suppose this might all reduce Valves % cut with Steam releases as surely they’ll try to go head to head with Epic. Ultimately Steam is the only storefront I actually like. Everything else seems a bit barren and clinical. I suppose to be fair EA, Ubisoft etc are doing something different but Epic have some serious work to do. Will be interesting to see what happens when Fortnite eventually falls out of favour:

    Darren Till comes across as being a little mentally challenged. I’m not trying to be funny, he genuinely comes across as being a bit limited.

    Fyre - The Greatest Party That Never Happened (Netflix)

    Looks like it. The internet estimates of his wealth fluctuate between $5 to $8 million, so he’s not exactly super rich.

    Fyre - The Greatest Party That Never Happened (Netflix)

    He seems to get out of the whole thing completely unscathed. I presume the documentary makers had to portray him that way as he’s a wealthy individual that would have tied them up in litigation for years.

    Fyre - The Greatest Party That Never Happened (Netflix)

    Good watch this. The amount of money lost for all concerned in this scam was staggering. Billy clearly just doesn’t give a fuck and the bit near the end with Frank just shows how messed up he really is. Is six years really sufficient for this level of blatant fraud?
  16. Tried the trial on Xbox. Can’t get into a game at all. Nice one.

    Now TV

    Good content but delivered poorly. That should not be underestimated.

    True Detective - Season 3

    Yep, mumbling has been a real issue for me as well. Feels more like season 1 and the revelation at the end of the first episode was fantastic. Episode two though was really hit & miss and I found parts of it quite dull. There’s only eight episodes so there’s surely no room for filler. Stephen Dorff is surprisingly good. I haven’t saw him on screen for a while.

    Cinema Paradiso - Disc rental service

    I used Cinema Paradiso before to get what UHD blu rays I could off them. No issues at all, will use again.

    Now TV

    Everything is in place to compete with the juggernaut that is Netflix but Now TV is a joke. I’m a long term Apple TV user and having had several of these devices I can certainly say the Now TV app is long, long overdue for an update. I’ve just bought a new LG OLED tv and I sat down last night to watch True Detective on its own Now TV app and it wouldn’t work at all once I got logged in. Went back to my Apple TV 4K and watched both episodes in glorious 720p (that also had an occasional not smooth frame rate). It’s 2019, alternate streaming services have plenty of UHD / Dolby Vision content while Sky can’t even give us 1080p. This service currently has no chance of competing. There’s good content available but the technical side is an incredible oversight.

    The Predator (2018) - Written by Shane Black & Fred Dekker

    This was at times incoherent with obviously missing scenes. I can’t fathom why they’re missing either. The first half of the movie is sort of watchable but the second half is a mess. It’s not unlike Alien Covenant I suppose. A sequel to something legendary but the more they make of them the worse they get. Both are ultimately just bad films. It’s surprising Shane Black is attached to this.

    PlayStation VR

    Steam VR Top Sellers There’s plenty of stuff on there that isn’t available on PSVR. The Oculus Store has things like Lone Echo and The Climb that are both very good and exclusive. I’m not sure about Vive exclusives as I don’t have one but PSVR isn’t the be all and end all of VR. The Epic Store has just given away the very highly related Subnautica for free. Why isn’t that game on PSVR? The PlayStation version is the ordinary one it seems?

    PlayStation VR

    I have a Rift and totally disagree. My PSVR camera was attached to the top of my wall mounted tv and the tracking was really poor in certain games. Superhot especially when you’re picking stuff up of the floor. I also had drift to the left side that happened gradually in pretty much every game. I upgraded to the Pro and even with that, visuals are clearly inferior to the Rift. Still, for the price PSVR is an absolute no brainer but although I’ve never tried Vive, my understanding was it’s the pinnacle of VR. You need to factor in the Move controllers as well as they aren’t great in comparison to what HTC and Oculus have instead. I’m not shitting on PSVR as it’s user friendly VR for the masses but I’m stunned that someone is claiming it’s better than a Vive.

    What are you playing Christmas Day?

    I had a couple of hours to kill this morning so stuck on my favourite walking simulator, DayZ. Clearly the least Christmas game ever. Met a fresh spawn on my travels. He ran up to say hello and despite me being armed to the teeth with four loaded weapons I didn't shotgun him in the face. This suggests I have fully embraced the Christmas spirit. I bought Rez Infinite on Friday and Ultrawings last night as presents to myself from the Steam sale so may dabble in those later when I'm able to get on again tonight.

    Steam

    Only Rez Infinite for me so far. I had never played it before in VR so it was time to do that.
