    Bald Bouncer
    Team Ninja’s Nioh received some new gameplay for the Defiant Honor DLC which is releasing on July 25th. As part of a recent stream with directors Fumihiko Yasuda and Yosuke Hayashi (start here for the actual gameplay), we got to see the new levels and tonfa weapon in action. Just be warned that there are spoilers, especially when it comes to the boss battle.


    However, perhaps the bigger announcement is the upcoming third DLC for the game. It’s called “Genna Enbu” or “Genna...

  • PlayStation Exec Assures PS4’s 2018 Games Line-Up Is Very Strong
    Bald Bouncer
    In the September issue of gaming magazine Edge, Jim Ryan from PlayStation, was asked about his thoughts about the PS4’s future exclusive line-up and why Sony’s first party game studios haven’t been able to deliver many exclusives every year. Given that Sony have so many exclusives such as Persona 5, Nier Automata and Horizon Zero Dawn released this year, I wonder why there are claims of lack of exclusives.


    Ryan addressed these claims by stating that the exclusives are there...

  • Sony Will Cut PS4 Price To $249 and PS4 Pro Price To $349 This Holiday Claim
    Bald Bouncer
    Although Sony has had a great 2017 so far, the PS4 has no major AAA exclusive games penned for release this Q4, except Gran Turismo Sport. In a way, Gran Turismo Sport has a huge responsibility of pushing the PS4 sales further for all the important Holiday season. Things become even more challenging if one puts Forza Motorsport 7 into the equation.


    So the PS4 may not be getting as many Holiday exclusives as the Nintendo Switch or even the Xbox One this Holiday- but against the...

    Marvel vs Capcom Infinite may have had all of its thunder stolen by the infinitely superior seeming Injustice 2 and the upcoming Dragon Ball Fighter Z, but there are undoubtedly long time fans of the series who are still waiting on the fourth entry in the series. Those fans should be pretty happy at the new footage for the game that was shared today.

  • Nier Automata – PS4 Pro vs PS4 Head To Head Graphics Comparison

    Nier 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.
