  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic To those that prefer silent protagonist, why?. on the Games Discussion board

    It's not so much that I like a silent protagonist, rather it's simply better than having a cardboard cutout generic guy fronting a game. If the dude I'm playing hardly has a personality then I'd rathe...

  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic Will Sony make a next gen dedicated portable console?. on the PlayStation Discussion board

    I doubt it. They aren't making a concerted effort to keep the Vita afloat, and TBH never really did. So I can't see them putting another machine out there when they aren't earnestly pushing the one th...

  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic Alright, why the hell is Destiny not on PC yet?. on the PC & Mac Discussion board

    TBH almost everyone I know that plays it openly admits that it's terrible and that they only play it because their friends all have it, making it the go to game. It sold almost entirely on hype alone....

  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic Got Sonic CD from download.com, can't run on Windows 7. on the Games Discussion board

    TBH the download itself sounds fishy given that the game is still being sold today (for money) on many digital outlets. Albeit a widescreen enchanced version of it.Without sounding like the person who...

  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic Will Final Fantasy X/X2 Remaster ever come to XB1?. on the Xbox Discussion board

    Sadly, I think we aren't going to see it if we've not heard anything about it yet. And TBH I think Square Enix dropped the ball on not putting out Xbox/PC versions of those games. Same deal for Kingdo...

    Can you give us your impressions on how G-Sync feels with games fluctuating from 40-60fps? Can you notice/feel/see the difference? How would you describe it?

  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic Crysis 2007 PC still superior to next gen console graphics?. on the System Wars board

    Yeah... sorry. Crysis doesn't look anywhere near that good in motion. The textures don't look that three dimensional and the huge amount of fine detail in the foilage blurs into a mess. Moreover you s...

    @Tokeism said:The Last Remnant?I can't speak for the game itself as I've not played it extensively, but I can vouch for the quality of the porting on this game. Runs well (and very stably) on a wide ...

  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic looking for jrpg (not ports!). on the PC & Mac Discussion board

    I have to second Trails in the Sky. Sure, it's also on the PSP, but keep in mind that the PC version was the original one. It was made with PCs in mind. It doesn't have an epic, sweeping story - inste...

  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic Is it so hard to put a decent title on Play Station Plus?. on the PlayStation Discussion board

    TBH I get the impression the "big" games that make it onto PS+ only do so after they've been out for a while. It probably doesn't make sense for publishers to put them out otherwise. With the PS3 the ...

  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic Big PC Exclusives of 2014, 2015 and 2016. Version 3.0+. on the PC & Mac Discussion board

    Wow. A lot of games I've never heard of. Man, gonna need a bucket of popcorn to get through all those trailers. PC games don't really have PR/visibility, not least because there's so many of them comp...

    You might want to just forgo overclocking TBH.I had a similar issue with the Asus 970 (albeit the entire computer would turn off), but it turned out that the Northbridge voltage (not (CPU-NB) on my mo...

  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic Anyone interested in Wolfenstein The Old Blood?. on the System Wars board

    I think I'm in the same boat as many in that The New Order turned out to be a pleasant surprse. A sensible, intelligent mix of the old and new. And I've just finished Return to Castle Wolfenstein (ser...

    What the hell did I just read? The body text has next to zilch to do with the title.

  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic The Witcher 3: Console vs PC [arguably a generation apart]. on the System Wars board

    So... we're making comparisons now using screens, the source platform of which is unknown in pretty much all cases? That's not a comparison, it's iffy guesswork at best. Come back when you have screen...

  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic What Games Have Given You The Most Value For Your Money?. on the Games Discussion board

    I got the Half-Life Generations pack (Half-Life, Blue Shift and Opposing Force) for 50p from a charity shop. Best damn 50p I've ever spent as all three games were new to me.

    I wonder, what about in cases when you are denied access to goods you've already purchased? I've had a tremendous amount of trouble getting a game to work because the proprietary installer for the sit...
