Hey all! I know I haven’t posted much. Busy with wedding planning and all, and sort of getting stuck playing InFamous: Second Son.
I still have to get my review of the HTC One M8, as well as Titanfall, as well as InFamous. I have yet to actually start the work on these, well, I do have the source material for my Titanfall HAR (Half Assed Review), but I just haven’t been able to put it together.
Anyhow, this is not what this post is about. About a week ago, Nekked and I did a session on MGS: Peace Walker, and we recorded the whole thing. Now, it is close to 50 minutes long, and for some reason my audio is very low. Granted this is the first time we did this, so please bear with us for now. This is really a test run for some stuff we have planned out.
Hope y’all enjoy it, somewhat. And if you did, please subscribe to our channel, and like our video…and while we are doing plugs, like our new FB page too! https://www.facebook.com/JWABlog
I know the MGS saga has clones aplenty but this is ridiculous. OK, it’s really not that much about clones this time around. I’m just getting at the fact that Kojima has released a comparison video for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. The video, which you can watch below, showcases the graphical power of all four systems that MGSV: GZ is to be released on. the PS3, 360, PS4, and XB1 are churning out superb graphical output in my opinion. Of course there are to be differences to take notice of, what with the PS4 and XB1 being the newer more powerful of the bunch. But it’s really safe to say that the game looks fucking amazing across the board. No need to fuss about intricacies unless you really are the type to gloss over every fucking pixel and polygon. Oh, did I mention it looks FUCKING AMAZING? Yes, FUCKING A-MA-ZING.
This GIF I found is not exactly too relevant at this point but showcases the differences between the first time and second time that the MGSV:GZ gameplay trailer were released.
You can see that the blue tint in the second instance has been added in favor of the greener subdued look for a more dramatic tone. The lighting on Chico’s face for example is brightened in contrast to the background to give a him a more frightened emotion. It shows us how grim the consequences of his supposed actions are.
Here’s a quick gif I found of the PS3 VS PS4. Pretty big difference in resolution if it’s THAT important to any of you.
Looks like Konami has posted some comparo shots of MGSV across the four platforms spanning two generations. PS3 next to PS4 and 360 with XB1. While it IS obvious that the now current gen pics look nothing less than stunning, the last gen shots are no slouch either. Better lighting, shadows, and overall sharpness in detail do stand out on the PS4/XB1, contrasting the ps3/360 versions fuzzier, less focused counterpart. But let’s not make this an SNES VS GENESIS battle, OK?
Current Gen/Next Gen Comparison Chart
Konami even made a Friggin chart for goodness sake! Honestly, they ALL look great. Plus, the newer generation of systems are more powerful. There is no real argument here. The only thing we gamers need fret over is which to get, and that depends on which console you already own. If you own current gen then make it all the more viable by purchasing for them. If you’re like me and own last gen, then make the appropriate choice. Or you could buy the game and then wait, save money, then buy the next gen console that corresponds to the game at hand. Either way its WIN WIN.
I did run into this which had me cracking up, Hahahahaha:
MGSV drops next month so lets be glad it isn’t exclusive on one system or the other.
Last year’s reboot of Tomb Raider was, one of my favorite games that came out last year, and perhaps one of my favorite games of all time. Graphics were great, controls were tight, and the story was right up there. Supporting cast was, well, not very supportive, but Lara herself had enough gusto to carry everything in her young shoulders. Fast forward to about roughly a year (OK so about 11 months and change), Tomb Raider: (more…)
By the Dark Side, I mean the dreaded iPhone nation. I have made the transition from Android to iOS. Now, iSheep, do not revel in this ‘defeat,’ for I’m still Android at heart. Partly why I’m actually documenting this reality is because of my heavy bias.
When I was first told about this game by B-Money, I got totally excited, and now, the game finally dropped on April 30th. on PSS for $15.00, and XBLA for 1200 MP. (see my original post https://justwroteablog.com/2013/04/16/far-cry-3-blood-dragon-dlc/). I finally was able to get my hands on it earlier today, and I just finished up playing the first 2 levels. All I have to say is, it’s cheesy. So cheesy, it’s amazing. It’s a very weird sensation, seeing 8-bit style graphics on the cut scenes, (imagine NES) and yet, I’m hearing 80’s style post apocalyptic movie dialog and music. I did some capturing, but it’s a tad late, so I will divulge more info and some footage and screens tomorrow. (or in this case later).
There is a Demo available on the PlayStation Store if you are weary about spending the $15.00 on it. How can you go wrong though. It is based off of Far Cry 3 (at least the game engine), and it’s made by the same people. I’ve bought games that were less money, and were not as good. If anything, get it for the cheese factor. Right from the get go, it’s entertaining. More soon on this!
Load screens are hilarious too. It’s these little things that really separate a good game from a great game.
Oh, the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. You’ve left many people, including the Big Cheese, powerless. In fact, I only got my power back today. So yes, our dear dedicated followers, the apologies for not really posting anything palatable in the last few days. Anyway.
Today’s Earworm will be my second LP ‘worm. It’s a good song, really. Off their new album Living Things.
Although the song’s meaning has nothing to do with electrical problems, the title of the song pretty much sums up what’s going on to most of the north east that has been affected by the dreaded super-storm, no matter how long the power had been out. I for one lost power for about 3 days. The Big Cheese has had no power for 4 days and counting. Everyone hope he’s safe, because he and I just want to get back to playing Resident Evil 6. (Little hint there, take note that you should expect a “Game Corner” from us soon.)
