    I heartly recommend. And even though the UK got shafted with 50Hz, at least we have an abundance of RGB capable 60 Hz consumer CRT's! It'll look awesome!

    The Saturn Appreciation Thread

    I had a PAL Saturn which I bought around 1996, because Nintendo's new machine was ages off and there was no way that Sony thing was going to be anything more than an interactive CD throw-away.... I've gotten into the Japanese side of Saturn related things or recent and have two Jap Saturns and quite a few of the classic games. You can get sealed copies of common stuff really easily for £10-£15! Don't. Get a CRT. Seriously. Loads of Saturn games switch constantly from 240p to 480i making them almost unplayable using a scaler like the OSSC or Framemeister. So you can either use a crap scaler, or your TV's scaler which will probably attempt to de-interlace constantly and add multiple frames of lag, or use a fancy scaler that needs time to switch video processing modes. Saturn needs a CRT.

    Xbox One backwards compatibility - Server Runtime Error

    Ninja Gaiden 2 is the one I want. I don't know why that couldn't come out.

    Anthem - February 22nd

    This has been reported as the best way to play the game on console. You'll stay above 30 fps almost all the time and often hit 60 fps. IT'S ALMOST LIKE DEV'S SHOULD HAVE USED THE PERFORMANCE BOOST OF MID-GEN REFRESH CONSOLES TO GENERALLY IMPROVE GAME EXPERIENCES AND NOT SHOOT FOR RESOLUTIONS THAT NO-ONES TV DOES YET.

    Crackdown 3 - February 15th, 2019

    I've found all the big hitches in both frame-rate and audio to be on auto-saving. "Saving" appears in the top left and it's frequently met with a big hitch. I do have my Xbox One S on quick boot, which might be part of it but I restart the CD3 app each session.
  8. You're talking about the employees of a publisher from 20 years ago? How much of the guard do you think has changed since them? Activision from the 90's / 00's is not Activision in 2019. In saying that, I do think you're right that in this instance they're just straight publishing and promoting the game over hear, and I really doubt they have any meddling in it.
  9. Finally got round to playing this. Here’s my review -

    That Eurogamer review is so bad, once again another odd review with quite a personal Gonzo style! The main criticism seems to be that the structure isn’t exactly like that of the first game? I honestly find their reviews of recent to be bewildering.

    I absolutely do not think RDR2 is crap in any way though. They're very different games, with RDR2 setting out to create an immersive world then sorta dictate a very well realised Netflix TV series to you, that you play. CD3 is more fun in the way it just lets you cause chaos. My Hot Take was loaded you see.

    Hot Take - I think Crackdown 3 is more fun than Red Dead Redemption 2.

    Crackdown 3 - February 15th, 2019

    It all totally reminds me of The Last Jedi, a film which I'm a fan of, others are not... whatever etc. But the online vitriol towards it! Holy shit, it's utterly insane.

    Crackdown 3 - February 15th, 2019

    Yeah, it does. It looks like it happens when the auto-save kicks in. Might also happen when it streams in some data. The Xbox One OG/S is defo a creaky old thing with crappy slow memory.

    If anything, I think things get a bit easier with your Agent ramping up, but the later Kingpin / Lieutenant stuff will likely require a fully levelled up Agent. Im playing on Super Agent and that feels the sweet spot to me.
