Atlus’ Persona 5 is the second highest rated game of this year, as well as the highest rated non remaster game on the PS4. It is one of the highest rated JRPGs of all time, and is widely considered to be the best game in the long running Persona series. In other words, it is fantastic by every standard- and this new trailer for the game, which is actually a remix of the ‘Sizzle trailer’ for the game that was released ahead of the game’s launch, reinforces that by showing all the accolades...19-04-2017, 12:17 AM

Update 4.55 is now out for the PS4. And while you shouldn’t have expected anything major after the feature rich update 4.50 was just released, it still deserves to be highlighted- this is one of those famous ‘stability’ updates. Yes, that’s right, update 4.55 adds nothing to the PS4 but more ‘stability.’ Which is, I guess, one fix to the wobbling problem that launch PS4 systems had?
Users are reporting better Wifi connectivity, as well as fixes with some crashing on the PS4 Pro,...11-04-2017, 06:22 PM
I have greatly enjoyed David Jaffe’s previous works so when he announced Drawn to Death, his new highly stylized, uber violent shooter, my interest was piqued. I’m someone who appreciates my shooters to look, feel, and play different – I’m more likely to play Overwatch or Splatoon than Call of Duty or Battlefield. Drawn To Death fit that to a T, and it was coming from one of my favorite creators as well. I was intrigued, even when so few others were.
On the whole, I think the...10-04-2017, 12:15 PM
At the recent BAFTA Game Awards, Naughty Dog director of communications Arne Mayer teased to IBTimes UK that Uncharted: The Lost Legacy would be roughly 10 hours along. When speaking about how the game went from being DLC to a standalone title, Mayer said that, “Years ago, when we were asked if we were ever doing a single player expansion for Uncharted we always said, ‘Well, we don’t have the self-discipline to do that’. If we tried to do that we’d create a full game.

Nier Automata – PS4 Pro vs PS4 Head To Head Graphics ComparisonNier Automata marks a return to form for PlatinumGames. After a series of disappointing games, the Japan based developer has finally found its touch. Nier Automata is an interesting title to analyze because at first glance it doesn’t seem to employ intensive graphical techniques. This is true to an extent but it makes up for it by depending on a unique but dull brownish/yellowish color palette and fantastic art style. There is a certain dark feel to the game which goes perfectly well with the post apocalyptic setting.
This is not to say that the game doesn’t rely on other colors. Later in the game you will come across colorful bosses and an amusement park. However, the highlight of Nier Automata’s engine is its ability to switch between different genres on the fly. The game often switches from being a side-scroller to a top down shooter, from the usual third perspective to a 3D plane shooter. The camera work is brilliantly implemented as the transition from one style to another is extremely smooth.
Automata’s lighting work is also superb in some places along with fantastic alpha and volumetric effects. The particle effects that are emitted whenever the player strikes the enemy to the various machines exploding, all of it looks pretty damn good. Add to that the amazing animation system (which isn’t a surprise considering this is coming from the developers of Metal Gear Rising Revengenace and Bayonetta) and you have what is perhaps one of the best action games on the PS4.
On the PS4, the game renders at 900p while the Pro manages to deliver a full 1080p resolution. Both consoles target a 60 frames per second cap which is a must given the game-style PlatinumGames are targeting for. However performance seems to be largely a mix bag on both versions. We witnessed various frame rate issues on both versions and these drops affect the combat. This is not to say that they happen every single time and for the most part we do get a stable performance but given that Automata is a game that relies so much on a fast controller input, a major drop could impact gameplay experience. We are hopeful that these performance issues will be fixed in a future patch but there is no official word on that yet. Other than the higher rendering resolution, the PS4 Pro version also benefits from better quality motion blur, anisotropic filtering and slightly better looking shadows.
Despite its performance issues, Nier Automata is an exceptionally good game. Its clever mix of several genres, deep RPG system, awesome boss battles and PlatinumGames’ crazy mix of over the top and action based combat make it one of the best action games on the PS4.
