  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic Graphics Don't Matter - Hypocritical?. on the Games Discussion board

    They matter in so far as much that they shape presentation (do the visuals evoke what the developer was going for?) and functionality (can you clearly see/differentiate what you are supposed to?). The...

  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic Jesus, the PS4 is a cheap looking and poorly built machine.. on the System Wars board

    Yep. Cheap mass produced Chinese made stuff. I've already had the rubber run down on the sticks and now even that has begun flaking off revealing the hard plastic underneath. And this is just from int...

    I only watched bits here and there but it looked to me like the framerate was rocksolid.Variance was generally within around 4 frames - which is neglible on 30FPS+ framerates. It's drops at lower fram...

  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic Why do you keep preordering games when they keep flopping?. on the System Wars board

    I don't pre-order games so much as pre-purchase them. Some games are bad, but you want to play them anyway so you can be part of the conversation/history of that series. It's normal for me to put mone...

    No it can't catch up. At least not with some kind of exclusive appearing out of nowhere to captures a massive new audience (something you can't count on happening. You can't engineer that).The two sys...

    He took issue with an issue across an industry/hobby, not with a select group/sub-group. *Shrugs* What are we supposed to be angry about again?Also... who is this guy?

    It's Famitsu. They write one paragraph reviews for a couple of the games they review and just assign scores (zero explanation for them) for everything else. Their scores don't mean jack unless they un...
