Just cuz Mericans don't like soccer, doesn't mean we're dumb. There are many other reasons as to why we are dumb

So I'm assuming there's a mode in Fifa World Cup to play in a half-built stadium and an empty field?

That PC for the same price as a console thing. You already said that you bought Windows but is the price of the monitor also going to be in with it?

Be okay having a decent gaming computer if you have a $50 12 inch screen to play games on.

I saw the pre-show video - man, some parts of the floor which you are working in are rather dark.

Where are the riots on the streets? No way this is a World Cup 2014 game.

Ok. talking about FIFA, I'm from Guatemala, so I do play a lot of actuall Football and FIFA is the game I play the most, and I enjoy so much the release of the World Cup game because you can actually play with your country, and you get a lot of skill out of getting your team that sucks, like Guatemala that has half a star... (where Germany Spain and others have 4 and a half or five stars, ) to be world champions, and believe me the skill you get out of that is amazing, you then go online and you are close to invincible... hahahaha 


But anyway, great to see this game in here, FIFA gets almost no coverage from Gamespot despite being one of the most played games in the world.

I'll admit I'm a little disappointed that the enhanced lighting wasn't included in the PC version. Yet as long as it looks crisp, clear, and runs well on PC, I can't complain. Am just so excited for the PC release.

Q: After playing both Xbone and 360 versions of the game, do you feel the hype for Titanfall was justified and whether it has lived up to that hype?

@kingcrimson24 i would wait to get the first one, its very good, but gfwl will be canceled soon, so you may can't play it online and PVP iis awesome and gives lots of reasons to play the game again and make new char builds.

@xefaros  It was Dark Souls 2 on PC, and yes, I imagine the modding scene will be all over it!

@ianhh6  You should be able to just rewind (all our video is live on-demand)

@eblevins021  It's more story-driven than it gets credit for--it's just that the story is told through minimal dialogue. The driving factors are the amazing diversity in environments, the precise combat, the leveling and customization, and the absorbing atmosphere.

@imm_84  I would recommend starting with Dark Souls 1.

@Xavmaster12  Yes. I hate all other games. 


What are you talking about? You aren't actually familiar with me or my body of work, are you?

@Kevin-V @xefaros Hey Kev, I a question of curiosity:

you said:

"aside from the higher resolution and framerate the game (dark Souls 2) looks exactly the same on all consoles..... it is surprising how EXACT it looks on all consoles"....

Now my question is this: if you reviewed DS2 on Maximum settings, and it looks the same as the ps3/xbox360 versions: Will the PC version look WORSE than the console counterparts - if put on anything less that Max/Ultra (such as High and Medium)?

GunEye
GunEye

@Kevin-V @imm_84 I would recommend starting with Demon's if you can give DS2 a wait. Then DS1.

@Kevin-V @Xavmaster12DOnt worry bout that guy. I know your style. Noone else reviewed the Crysis games.

@snakebite6x6x6 @GunEye@Kevin-V@xefaros that's not was I meant.

The game got settings like: Med, High, Very High, Ultra aside from the Resolution.

So Kevin said it looks exactly like the console versions (minus the extra res and fps). And he tested the game on MAX SETTINGS.


So I asked: if I put the game on Very High or High for instance: would it look worse than Consoles?!

@imm_84  OMG.  If you own Demon's Souls and haven't played it, you're committing a horrible sin as a gamer.  You owe it to yourself to play that game.

... seriously, drop what you are doing and play Demon's Souls.  NOW!

GunEye

@imm_84 Dude, listen, play Demon's first.

Never start with the 3rd and latest game in the series.

Play Demon's Souls, which is perhaps even harder and more punishing than Dark Souls. It looks great and run great, and it still has network support (that might end too soon - so hurry up).


Then Play Dark Souls. See the enhanced graphics and gameplay mechanics, and huge open world game. Then play DS2.

I am telling you, this way you will feel the improvement as you go.

@GunEye @Kevin-V @imm_84   I was hoping you would say demon souls I picked it up never started it !  Thanks for replying Kevin !
