  • Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy DLC Trophy List Revealed
    Bald Bouncer
    Vicarious Visions’ Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy will have a number of Trophies when it releases but there will be a few more to come. A Trophy list revealed by Exophase indicates two extra Trophies that are part of something called the Lost Treasures DLC.


    The Silver Trophy is The Crown Jewel where you must “seek and destroy” to obtain it. An Ancient Antiquity is the Gold Trophy and the description is “Do hard time”. What those could mean remains to be seen and neither...

  • Sony On Not Allowing Cross Platform Play
    Bald Bouncer
    Sony’s backwards policies when it comes to cross platform play have been revealed over this week, as first Minecraft, and then Rocket League – and both substantially major games- have been announced to be getting full cross platform play between their PC, Xbox, and Switch versions, but the PS4 being excluded.


    This happens because Sony won’t allow for cross platform play whatsoever, despite originally championing it, when it was clear Microsoft would never allow for it. In an...

  • You Can Play As Coco Through All Of Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy
    Bald Bouncer
    Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy looks to be a loving remaster of the original trilogy of the PlayStation platformers, modernizing them for a new age of gamers who never played them, and for those who did and yearn to return to the games again. But it looks like developers Vicarious Vision and publisher Activision have managed to pack in some surprises for us still.


    For instance, they have confirmed that you will be able to play through the entire trilogy, all three games, as Coco,...

  • Shenmue 3 Delayed to Second Half of 2018
    Bald Bouncer
    If it weren’t bad enough that Ys Net’s Shenmue 3 would be missing E3 2017, creator Yu Suzuki announced in a new video message that the game has been delayed to the second half of 2018. The long-awaited sequel was originally meant to release by December 2017. At least, that was the delivered date on its Kickstarter campaign.


    Suzuki said in the video that, “We unfortunately must delay its release. By utilizing new technologies we have been able to discover new possibilities and...

  • Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice Releases On August 8
    Bald Bouncer
    It’s been a long time coming, but it’s almost here - Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, the new action title from developers Ninja Theory, will be releasing this year, on August 8, for PC and PS4. The game, which was originally announced at Gamescom 2014, has been a very long wait- but at last, players will be able to play it.


    The game’s story takes from Celtic and Norse mythologies, but also adds a psychological story into the mix. It will be tackling some sensitive psychological...

  • Analyst Skeptical Of 2018 PS5 Release Claims
    Bald Bouncer
    We’ve heard some rumors claim that a PS5 is coming next year- the claim was made by an analyst, the very same who also successfully predicted the PS4 Slim’s debut alongside the PS4 Pro last year, which is why his word has been given any credence. But… doesn’t it make very little sense for Sony to launch a PS5 next year, two years after the PS4 Pro, five years after the PS4, and when the PS4 is doing so well for itself, too?


    According to Michael Goodman, who is the director of...

  • 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.
