  1. Burnout Paradise

    This is fantastic. I haven't played a burnout game since Revenge, having missed out on this at the time, but I remember now why I loved the series so much. I'm not seeing any jaggies here incidentally, although I'm paying on the One X. It looks like a touched up 360 game like you'd expect, but it's sharp as anything.
  2. Dark Souls Remastered

    It looks like it's getting some AO and stuff thrown in too. It's going to be more than a resolution boost, but don't expect miracles basically.

    Or indeed any version. I don't think the short play time thing is a, well, a thing. If anything the Switch is better suited for longer experiences than the home consoles as you can just pick it up and be in a game in seconds, even if you're out of the house. Why not have one more bash at Ornstein and Smough?

    "On your PS4 Pro system, go to [Settings] > [Sound and Screen] > [Video Output Settings] > [Supersampling Mode] > [Enable Supersampling Mode]." It basically tricks the game into thinking you have a 4K TV, which isn't ideal but it does the job for games that don't otherwise support supersampling.

    Only if you enable the feature, and then only if the game is Pro enhanced. Burnout Remastered should work with it though.
  6. Dark Souls Remastered

    They do compare it to the other versions, but it would be pretty useless, and pretty uninteresting to simply say "the PC version runs better". That's a given for something like Doom, whereas seeing just how well the Switch version holds up by comparison is far more useful. If it was a mess then there would be no point buying it, but as it happens it's a pretty great port that makes for an incredible handheld game. The same goes for Dark Souls. I doubt anyone expects it to match the 4K versions, but as long as it plays well enough for a mobile version I'll be happy. Dark Souls doesn't require you to be online to play it, although you'd miss out on the messages, invasions and co-op. Also while you can't pause, it is constantly saving your position and status. The game could just boot you out if you were playing online and you wouldn't lose anything, and in offline mode there would be no issue with it simply suspending.

    I haven't watched the video, but again I don't think the claim is that the Xbox One X is better at running the game than a PC would be. I'd go for it being down to an issue with the original code like you suggested, which would presumably be addressed for the remaster.

    The current PC version is just a port of the original console release. I doubt there are any performance issues, but obviously it doesn't have any of the new textures, lighting and stuff.
  9. Life is Strange - Season 1 & Before the Storm

    I did play it, but I'd forgotten about that!
  10. Popular/Great Games you just don’t ‘get’

    Oh yeah, that was definitely an exception. Doom was fantastic.
  11. Popular/Great Games you just don’t ‘get’

    Dark Souls is probably my favourite game of all time, but I don't think the series gybes a good first impression. The "prepare to die" marketing doesn't help either actually, as it gives the impression that the games are all about bashing your head against a wall repeatedly until you inch forwards, and my first attempt was such slow going to start with this is exactly the impression I got too. Once you get a feel for the games though you'll find this isn't the case at all. There are certainly tricky spots where you'll probably die a lot, but for the most part you'll progress pretty smoothly as long as you're careful. Also overcoming those tricky spots is often the best feeling in gaming. I've found that first person shooters tend to leave me cold these days, although I used to love them. I want to give The New Colossus a fair shot though.
  12. Life is Strange - Season 1 & Before the Storm

    The bonus episode was short and sweet, and a fitting send off I thought.
  13. He couldn't hear any of that, and it probably wouldn't make up for the murder. It's all good though. Billin certainly adds a bit of spice to the party.
  14. Well, Farren's definitely not Billin's biggest fan any more.

    Fights can take a while, but they do get more interesting as you level up, gain new abilities and open up new options. We just had a fight in our current campaign that took two two and a half hour sessions to finish, but it was awesome.
