So what's next for Crytek?

Their games have been consistently spiraling down in terms of quality.

Should they possibly try and make Timesplitters 4? They have nothing to lose at this point, but I don't really want my favourite series to be tarnished by the Crytek curse.

#202 Posted by ShoTTyMcNaDeS (1866 posts) -

welp

4.0, so much for that

Forza > Resogun

Killer Instinct = Killzone:SF = Dead Rising 3

Ryse = Knack

discuss...

You are comparing a racer to a FREE Indie arcade shooter. You cant necessarily that one is better than the other when they are different genres and are/should be graded as such. Same thing with KI Vs. KZSF Vs. DR3. All different genres! The bottom line is as a whole, both consoles launches are extremely mediocre.

#203 Posted by killzowned24 (7286 posts) -

Ryse cutscenes pre-rendered, framerate goes down to 16fps.

Its performance is pitifull running under 30fps for the majority at 24-28 fps

LOL

You people are fools debating which console to buy based on launch games.

This is about which console is the better buy for the remaining life time and which console has better hardware and price to performance ratio.

If you want to drop $500 on a console to play Halo and Forza for the next ten years you be my guest.

And let's not forget that it is far weaker than ps4 and runs hotter and uses more power. Ohh yeah, let's not forget that it takes a minute and half to boot and with a browser so slow that cell phones beat it by miles.

@timbers_WSU:

so that means TLOU is 95% then? :D

I have maintained throughout that GS scores are what matters. I'd still play this game, not buy it, but I'd play it. I'm going to play Knack this weekend too.

We haven't heard from @shawn30 yet. I'm concerned.

#208 Edited by MrXboxOne (742 posts) -

For the moron talking about pre-rendered cutscenes and ryse dipping too 16......

Knack drops to 14, KZ drops to 18, DR3 drops to 12 (although there is a patch now). COD on PS4 drops to 48 ect.

MOST All games have pre-rendered cutscenes.

#209 Posted by Clock-w0rk (3238 posts) -

So it's definitely less fun than dialling numbers?

#210 Posted by Flubbbs (2807 posts) -

hearing the campaign is only around 6 hours also

@blackace:

Hey keep this game so I have someone to coop with when I play it.

#212 Posted by FireEmblem_Man (8479 posts) -

So Ryse is the new Lair of this new gen?

cut scene framerate wars? I didn't know that the performance of a cut scene framerate mattered. I know, I know my damage control is off the charts.

#214 Posted by blackace (19732 posts) -

Along with Knack, yes. lol!!

Once again XBox launches with a AAAE and PS does not. Let's hope it doesn't take another 18 months like it did with the PS3. I want a AAAE to play on my PS4.

@FamilyGuyFan507 said:

@Suppaman100: You keep using a side scrolling indie title to justify your purchase. Sorry, your reasoning is as flawed as your decision making. Ryse, is still better than your exclusive Knack, and Forza/DR3 both scored better (on a majority whole) than the killer app Killzone. But again, go ahead and kling on Resogun. Pretty lame.

The funny part is you're owning yourself.

A "2 hour indie game" is better than any Xbone exclusive.

That's a fact.

But hey go ahead and cling on to your "only GS scores count" butthurt.

You are one of the only two idiots here parading a free 2D side scroller. When measuring success of Sony's launch, this is a major fail. Sooner or later you have to be a big boy and admit it. My little SuppaDuppaMan.

Gonna have to post proof otherwise its fud. Also,all the PS4 games are1080p and run OVER 30fps, whereas every xbone game is subFullHD at 30fps and lower.

Any cow that says TLHBO is an idiot. It's not ownage when someone falls into the same predicament as you. Just like it wasn't ownage for lens when cows got the PS+ requirement news

Yeah, but that was 'WTF' because the cows gave Xbox fans SO MUCH shit about it online fees last gen.

We didn't give you shit about the online fees, we gave you shit because you pretended like it was fun and that it was good to have to pay for something others were getting for free. You can't call ownage when someone falls into the same issue as you. That's sad and dumb. Especially when you acted like you were happy with the issue

The cows made about a thousand topics on it, lems had to damage control a bit, but the truth it we had to deal with it, it wasn't something anyone liked but had to do. But cows never let up. And it was never about one aspect of online, like we enjoyed paying for it, it was topics like 'half your games are held for ransom' and others. It was never ending.

After a gen of bull shit, it's to hard to let go.

#223 Edited by FamilyGuyFan507 (2429 posts) -

@Eddie-Vedder: 61 on Metacritic, average user on here predicted around a 7. So, no. Killzone on the other hand...

That game also resulted in the death of a company. I had a funny feeling ryse was going ot get a 4 or 5 on GS.I'm not 100% sure if lair was actually hyped.

That's gameplay framerates. LOL

Cutscenes being pre-rendered is just extra lolz because thats all you lems would post.

Reality is, a basic Killzone soldier looks better than ryse main character and does it at a higher resolution and framerate.

Damn shame, maybe even more than Forza I wanted this game to be good. Just because of its promise and what it could have been.

___

And on another point its kind of odd/interesting that both consoles have had, more or less, identical software line ups as far as GameSpot reviews go.

#231 Posted by finalstar2007 (24860 posts) -

So im only 1 point off.. been saying the game is worth 3/10 since August, the moment i played it i knew its garbage and LOL at being happy that a car game got a good score.. a car game lmfao

PS4 all the way this generation

@Suppaman100:

Your logic fails. Even if you go by meta, the ps4 launch is still much worse.

KZ:SF = 73 and Knack = 56

Forza 5 = 82... DR3 = 78... KI = 73...Zoo Tycoon = 70... Powerstar Golf = 68 and Ryse = 60

In what way is the ps4 a better launch?

Zoo tycoon, powerstar gold, Ryse... LMFAOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

Resogun > every Xbone exclusive on metacritic.

Deal with it.

"bu..bu..bu..only GS scores count" LOL

TLHBO

So you bought a PS4 to play a twin stick indie game that is worse than Geometry Wars and came out like 8 years later LOL

So you bought an Xbone to play games that are worse than a PS4 indie game, inferior mutliplats, sh*t first-party, weak POS hardware, glorified cablebox, 720p (LOL!), more expensive, casual orientated, kinect POS? LOL

Forza, Killer Instinct, Sunset Overdrive, Quantum Break and D4. I'll get a PS4 in 2015 when it's worth buying. I buy consoles to play games and the PS4 is not worth buying until 2015

#233 Posted by sirk1264 (5512 posts) -

@Stevo_the_gamer: yep. I do remember that day. Lair was hyped way high and boy did cows get a tongue lashing from every other faction. This time around both systems have had their good games, mediocre games, and bad games.

That's probably true for casuals and poor people who can only afford one system. Launch games decide which system to buy first. True gamers get all systems. Stay casual, dude.

I mean, if you are not into car culture, there isn't much there for you. I have no interest in Gran Turismo or Forza. When my friend got Forza 2, I couldn't stop laughing at how lame the gameplay looked. I thought it was a joke bargain bin game, only to be surprised that it is a critically acclaimed series. I couldn't believe how unenjoyable it seemed, only to learn that thats how racing sims all play.

I'll take my kart racers and Burnout games. Racing sims just aren't for me, as well as many others out there.

#239 Posted by shawn30 (4290 posts) -

Yeah, I'm still excited to play Ryse. Ive watched a couple of 20 minute or more demos so I know what I'm getting into. Im such a huge Spartacus fan and a fan of that era. So I'm all in despite the GS review. But that review is what it is and the game flopped, lol. Still gonna have fun playing it though :)

Resogun > every exclusive Xbone game on metacritic!

TLHBO

LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL

GS scores here buddy. Forza 5 > Resogun>>>>all the rest.

Still a crap launch for Xbone if you count GS scores.

And an ever crappier launch for Xbone if you count metacritic scores.

So either way; TLHBO!

Ok but if TLHBO...then, well....TCHBO as well.

Agree when you're speaking about launch games.

Both line-ups are sh*t, I've said it a thousand times here but it was the only (weak) argument lemmings had to counter the PS4.

PS4 launch is still a big success though so TLHBO a LOT more than cows.

How? At least the X1 has a high scoring game on it. You can damage control all you like. Also Indie games are not held to the same standard in reviews. It wouldn't be fair, they are made by small teams with low budgets and sell for a lot less.

The biggest success with the PS4 is the pre-order sales numbers, but you should also consider the PS4 costs less, so it will sell more until MS can bring the price of the X1 down.

After about 9 months of listening to the cows brag and give the competition a shit kicking, it's more than fair to say, TCHBO with the launch big time.

LOL wot? Strong damage control. The problem is you can't see that the line-up of the Xbone has failed too. (yes so did the line-up of PS4) And that means PS4 still has the edge.

Brb every game is mediocre or flopped on GS except for Forza and when we look at metacritic (the more objective view) we see that the Xbone launch games flopped completely. Als indie game or not, Resogun > Xbone games on metacritic, so by your logic PS4 wins the launch games war when you look at metacritic

Brb forget that Xbone is focused on casuals with the mandatory kinect

Brb Xbone is 100 bucks more expensive

Brb Xbone is weaker

Brb Xbone is a glorified cablebox/multimedia center which again is a sign they're after the casuals

Brb PS4 has the superior multiplats thanks to better hardware

Brb PS4 is breaking sales records

Brb Resogun outscored every Xbone exclusive on metacritic, even Forza LOL

Brb Xbone had A LOT of bad publicity

Brb potential CEO of MS and important shareholders want to get rid of the Xbox division

Brb ...

So pls do continue with your DC but in the real world, PS4 is winning.

Your damage controlling lol. Greatness awaits... and nothing happened lol.

No one cares about metacritic, until they're butt hurt about the score.

X1 isn't focused on casuals. it's just more flexable. Just cow BS keep going with that,

Xbox £80 more but comes with Kinect and Fifa 14, thank you Microsoft. X1 is a just making use of the PCs ability to do more. Thank You Microsoft for the media abilities and the games.

I'll take more features over slightly higher resolution thanks. Especially since most videos don't show much improvement over last gen with the multiplats,

Don't care about bad PR, MS listened and reversed it's bad policies, Thank You Microsoft.

MS have invested far too much in Xbox to let it go. They'd never get that back. And they won't listen to the guy who was running Nokia into the ground.

Lol keep damage controlling, cow. PS4 launch stank out the games industry.

HAHAHAHAHAHA! Fool!

Thanks for confirming your butthurt with a weak, non sensical response.

On topic since you like GS scores that much: Ryse flopped, TLHBO

I'm not butt hurt, you are, that's why you're bringing metacritic into it. How is it unbiased when it comprises of reviews I wouldn't trust in the first place. My response isn't nonsensical I just don't care about the same shit you do.
Truth is, X1 is looking good right now. And it is looking more interesting. If cared about having the better graphics, i'd get a gaming PC. The PC smokes the PS4 out of the building.
I want a console with decent graphics that is going to offer more than just the same with better graphics.
Example [Youtubes] Inside Sim Racing called GT5 on it's ai (ai 3/5) and there is nothing that can be done about it, it's unlikely to get any less robotic. X1 is able to solve this with drivatar. Cloud based ai learning. Making others on the track much more human.
That's a next gen feature right there.
Kinect 2 is accurate enough to measure subtle movements, heart rate and facial expressions. The possibilities of what the cloud and Kinect 2 can do for gaming are huge. Cows keep thinking of the first Kinect when they think of Kinect, which was an inaccurate device that was sold seperately so it didn't get direct support or integration.
So I really don't care if the PS4 has better graphical potential, it's not like the X1 is weak, it's just weaker than the PS4.

#245 Posted by GravityX (677 posts) -

Shouldn't 4.0 be reserved for broken games? Reading serveral reviews everything seems top notch with the exception of the perceived tedium of the game. I think it deserves a better score. Just like Knack.

#246 Posted by Bruin1986 (1175 posts) -

Can't say that I'm genuinely surprised.

No preview I saw of the game gave me the impression that the reviewers were really enjoying themselves. More of them just mentioning the shock value of all the severed limbs, gratuitous executions and stunning visuals. I guess it serves its purpose though as the graphical showstopper for the console launch. Too bad the gameplay doesn't match.

I don't really care for MetaCritic. Lair was supposed to be the Rogue Squadron with Dragons, but flopped hard and ended Factor 5.
