@Alucard_Prime: Thanks for checking for me man, but when I say check the achievements for the game are you actually clicking on the game? Because mine shows a blank empty square instead of the box art for the game, next to that it displays the correct percentage of achievements but the trouble lays when I click onto the game to see more. An error message pops up saying "Something went wrong, try later".
No reboot or anything fixes it, and I went to my brothers house to check on his Xbox One and from his Xbox I went to compare my games and it still shows a blank empty square for the box art but when you click on the game you can view everything with no error message whereas I can't on my Xbox One. So it's really got me confused, and now you're saying everything displays normal for you.
Do you have any advice? Has something caused my gamertag to corrupt the files from displaying that game?
To anyone that has played the Xbox 360 version of the game, when you are on your Xbox One console and you scroll through all your games to check your older game achievement scores does Dead Rising 2 Off the Record display properly?
Because when I scroll down all my games under the achievement app on the Xbox One to view their achievements, DR2 Off the Record comes up as a blank square (it says the right gamerscore percentage next to it) but when I go to click on the title an error comes up saying: "Something went wrong, please try again later".
I can check all my other games (both Xbox 360 and Xbox One) I can click on them and view the achievements and their stats but not for Off the Record.
Can one of you please check for me, to see if it's the same to for you? Thanks.
@Macutchi: Of course, varied opinions can't be wrong and I always welcome them. To answer your question though, Witcher 3 is easily graphics king atm and comparing anything to it would just be silly. Haven't gotten MGS yet but played the demo and was quite impressed graphically tho it didn't blow me away. Gta V wasn't this gen but I do get what you mean I.e the remaster, Bloodborne isn't my cup of tea graphically and gameplay wise and Arkham knight had too much film grain for my liking.
As for Fallout 4 I still stand by what I said, I think it looks nice graphically. Although some areas can look flat as you mentioned but a lot of big open world games suffer from that with a few exceptions. Lets not forget witcher 3 was quite buggy too.
@Macutchi: I'm playing on the PS4 and can not fault the graphics, especially when compared to Fallout 3 and New Vegas. But as a standalone game too I still think Fallout 4 looks great.
I was less annoyed by the size of the map and more annoyed by the lack of actual stuff to do. Like, the USS Constitution side quest was kind of cool. Sure, it basically boiled down to "fetch this, kill that" just like the rest of the game. But it actually paid off in the sense that something interesting or amusing actually happened at the end. To make an analogy, it's like a joke that actually had a punchline. Meanwhile, in my opinion, most of the rest of the game is all setup. Most quests are "kill this, find that, fix something". Which I'm not knocking, because that's basically how the whole game works. My problem is specifically that that's ALL that most quests amount to. It's all setup with no punchline. You do the work but it doesn't MEAN anything because ALL that one gets as a reward are experience points and maybe some cool weapons/armor.
For a shorter game, that's fine. For a game of this length, that's potentially a problem. The game is a chore simulator. That's basically what I do: I run errands and do chores. That's not necessarily a problem, because if the game is short enough then it's easy to finish it before getting so sick of doing chores. But by 40 freaking hours, it becomes VERY apparent that that's all the game is doing and there is rarely gonna be any payoff. I don't expect the game to be meaningful, but they could at least do a better job of trying to give the ILLUSION that dozens of hours worth of chores actually means something. At least TRY to use the game's long ass time to show me something that I haven't seen before. That's not to say that there aren't some really clever and entertaining moments, but the number of times this game actually ENTERTAINED ME is depressingly low for how much time I put into it. I've been playing these games ever since Fallout 2. I didn't become a fan just because of the grinding and the killing, I became a fan because the developers did a good job of giving the ILLUSION that all of that work would pay off with something entertaining and memorable. Maybe that's just nostalgia speaking, and the previous Fallout games were just as boring. But I can say that after spending a buttload of time with it, Fallout 4 is boring.
There's more to the Fallout universe than meets the eye. I like the hidden messages left via notes or terminals and the backstory on the situations that happened, where you need to use your imagination. The exploring factors, the interesting characters you meet and the settlements/vaults that hide dark deep secrets that you need to reveal. I know you said you've played all the Fallout games but I can't help but feel like this game was never quite meant for you (I apologize if I'm wrong), if all you got out of the Fallout games was "fetch this, kill that" perhaps it never really was your style because the game feels like a whole other world waiting to be discovered.
Fallout 3 was my first Fallout game and I've never experienced a game that felt so unique, the characters were so interesting and I remember the first time I met the friendly bartender ghoul in Megaton thinking "wtf is this thing, will it try to kill me?". The settlements and the way the wasteland reacted just amazed me. Also I loved the dialogue system (another thing I dislike about Fallout 4 was how Bethesda dumbed down the dialogue system for Fallout 4). Anyways this is why I love the Fallout universe and why Fallout 3 is my favorite game because unlike many other games in this genre Fallout has a unique way in expressing it's world, it's the small details in the world that leave you there pondering in awe.
But I agree they could of done more with Fallout 4, hence this thread.
@BattleSpectre: i'm not sure whether bethesda played it too safe, or whether they've just attempted to get away with a game that was primarily designed for last gen. supposedly the game was in development as far back as 2010. things like the small map, the poor graphics, the lack of ambition with regards to gameplay evolution etc. could be explained by that. just a hypothesis ;)
I never understood the complaints about the graphics, the visuals continue to amaze me in certain areas and I think it looks very polished. Perhaps people haven't fine tuned their TV's, or they are playing on tiny 20" screens.
@jcopp72: You missed origins, the best in the series.
This, Dragon Age Origins was and still is one of the nicest done RPGs to this day. You're not doing yourself any favors by not playing it TC.
I am not the one asking about the series, I was simply Answering a question. If I missed out then oh well, you dont need to tell me about it, tell the OP how good Origins is.
You misunderstood me mate, I was agreeing with the comment that was made and aiming this towards the TC. Here have a cookie for your troubles =].
