Eventually all that censorship will bite the Chinese government in the place where the sun don't shine.

What are they talking about? They allow babies to be abandoned in Forests, and skin animals alive just for their fur. China is asinine.

I'd prefer the game to be 600p and 60fps than 1080p and 30fps.

Last gen the emphasis on making graphics all uber resulted in some games being boring as all hell. This gen if they don't get their priorities right it will be the damn resolution which makes the gameplay slip, YET AGAIN!

I'm not a massive replayer of games. I figure once you've seen everything the game doesn't feel the same at all. Nothing surprises you, or challenges you. But there are a few games on my list namely Witcher, any game in the Final Fantasy franchise (before 10), and many other PS1 games and even a small number of Xbox Original and PS2 games which I would replay.

But Xbox 360? I can't think of one game really off of the top of my head that I would love to jump back into right now and play again. And that includes Dark Souls which I loved epicly when I played it.

Surely they could just VPN and access them from Steam? They VPN for everything else like facebook and youtube?

Great show Jess.  Happy Holidays to you.  No one can ever take your place.


China=keep the games at a G rating (a US rating suitable for young kids).


Project Cars.  It looks and sounds good.

I wonder what Jess is short for.  Maybe Jessica, or Jessena, or Jessnika!

I wonder if the view count goes down whenever Jess is on holiday.

"Hey, so uhhh, Lords of the Fallen might not be 1080p on our system."

"Alright, what is it in PS4?"

"1080p."

"Fuck."

60 fps only! No more of this 30 fps shit.

Hi Jess!

China is doing something not surprising again, as usual.

CoD wanted to go like BF4, but since the requirement of Ghosts is really unflexible and unfair to other systems on x86bit, I am not looking forward on it.

Just put Lords of the Fallen on PC, and you will see 1080p. I don't want to see a XBONE on fire.

Nice news day again Jess. And I was thinking if I can release a Jess McDonell Summer Collection shirts. =D

High resolution OR high framerate?

@jygg4lag Agreed. G'wan Jess, throw caution to the wind and pull a funny face next time.

@DarkLord Falling blocks into cramped positions with the idea of eliminating them? I don't think China is ready for Tetris...

@cvbz  Can you really honest to god tell the difference? because in most cases 30 fps is just fine, dip below that and its a little shaky but there is nothing wrong with 30fps plenty of games look brilliant at 30fps

@cvbz I'm not a competitive gamer, and maybe I'm not so pro as everyone else :), but I've never felt like 60fps is so important.  On PC, I just play the game and if needed adjust the settings until it feels right.  I have monitored framerate only a few times in my life, and those were just special instances where I wanted to benchmark something.


But, I understand how people feel about this.  We get these snazzy new consoles and then the numbers are just kinda meh.  And, as I've said many times, I do enjoy seeing it reported on so much because I like the console makers to get a taste of their own BS marketing medicine.  Resolution and "HD" and whatever are important when it suits them, and then not when it doesn't.

@LordCrash88 GTA 5 months ago, or maybe in the future?
PC only gamers. . sigh!

@LordCrash88 ??  You get it on PC, too.  The difference is, we get to choose ourselves which to have instead of the developers locking down all the "confusing" options for us.

@larkin-54 @cvbz yes you can tell the difference. yes it is a big deal. jumping from 60 to 144 was just as noticeable. Some games don't need it, but twitch shooters like counterstrike do. Once you go back to 60fps you can feel the lag. 30 is unplayable for me.

@larkin-54 @cvbz  Sure 30 fps is not bad but it is the minimum. You say your self that below 30 it gets shaky. Nothing beats the silky smoothness of 60 fps. Also you mentioned games look brilliant at 30 fps. Im talking about performance. Thankful, at least on the PS4 it seems that no one is really having to much trouble having both awesome looks at 60 FPS.

@ahpuck  Hm, don't care about GTA V that much. I hate playing the bad guy anyway. ;)

@ahpuck GTA V without insane texture pop in?


Oh wait - moot point...


probably PC gamers too as Rockstar are a bunch of arseholes who can't optimise anything that isn't Max Payne 3.

@ahpuck  This is why I have a back up console, granted I only turn it on every 6 months or so. GTA 5 was the last reason, not sure there will be a next though. I'm currently using it as a coaster, I shit you not :D
