  • Magescrew posted a message in the forum topic How much do you believe in console optimization?. on the System Wars board

    I believed it more in the past when console tech was more proprietary. Now that they pull parts off the shelves, there's maybe like a 5% difference in performance between a PS4 and an equal PC. Conso...

  • Magescrew posted a message in the forum topic Vanishing of Ethan Carter the most beautiful game (Update). on the System Wars board

    Ethan Carter looks like if you built a Skyrim-ish world with the source engine using insane textures. Certainly pretty, but I can see the Half Life 2 comparisons.

  • Magescrew posted a message in the forum topic David Hayter or Kiefer Sutherland?. on the System Wars board

    I don't get this thread. The game's not even out yet. All this thread is is life-long MGS fans shouting "Hayter!" while the few 24 fans on this board meekly whimper "Bauer!"

    KOTOR lost out to Half Life 2, Fallout 3, and Portal?! I mean those are decent games (great even) but I can't imagine replaying them over and over again like I did KOTOR.ME2 deserves its spot...with a...

  • Magescrew posted a message in the forum topic In defense of Destiny. Victim of hype and high expectations.. on the System Wars board

    @Thunderdrone: You said it yourself. Gameplay and setpieces can only take a game so far these days. Lack of lore/stories is devastating when a game is as hyped as Destiny was. Just another example of...

    Meh, not really impressed by that article.Already a few good responses to this article chiming in from other sites:http://www.gainsense.com/2014/04/does-xbox-one-suck.html

  • Magescrew posted a message in the forum topic Why Steam isn't a big hit in Japan. on the System Wars board

    Sometimes cultural divides are too wide to gap. It's still hard to understand though. Japanese games aren't my favorite (generally I don't really connect to the storylines, especially in JRPGs), but I...

  • Magescrew posted a message in the forum topic Are open worlds actually fun to explore?. on the System Wars board

    @Celtic_34: Having an open world does not necessarily lead to a great exploration experience. Like, I fast travel in AC, but spent way too much time roaming the fields of the much less open Dantooine...

  • Magescrew posted a message in the forum topic "Plot is Highly overrated" according to developers. on the System Wars board

    I can recount the story of my favorite games like Kotor I/II front to back and side to side. Same with Mass Effect and Dragon Age and Halo and Fallout 3 and New Vegas. Did they poll two year olds?

  • Magescrew posted a message in the forum topic Is console 'next-gen' again holding back PC gaming?. on the System Wars board

    Maybe. I mean, next gen consoles are weaker than my gaming laptop. But it would be better to say that people in general are holding back gaming. If everyone dropped $1-2K on a great gaming PC then yo...

  • Magescrew posted a message in the forum topic is this a good 500 dollar budget PC build ?. on the PC & Mac Discussion board

    Any CPU made in the last four years + an Nvidia 750 TI + a bunch of bargain parts from newegg.com and a case should be enough to last you for this console generation, and it'll probably be around $50...

  • Magescrew posted a message in the forum topic Does Guild Wars 2 make ESO look like a terrible prospect?. on the System Wars board

    @MBirdy88: Zenimax Online Studios, Bethesda, whatever. The two have worked with each other long enough that they might as well be the same thing. Plus, that doesn't refute any of the other points mad...

    Dude, people have been saying that ESO would be terrible for a while now (see http://www.gainsense.com/2014/01/the-elder-scrolls-online-will-be.html for my personal favorite take on this). As far as M...
