Heh, 4k is overrated. For gaming, it tanks your framerate too much except on older games or a very high end PC.

Yes, even though my PC is capable of better, I play at 1080p or so... which is fine for most games.
1080p w/4xAA @60+fps always beats 4K @30-40fps, unless you're playing a flight-sim or something where your view distance is crucial.

For me, the appeal of 4K consoles isn't their ability to play games at 4K @30fps, but 1080p @60fps or even 120fps. I just hope that 4K games give us that choice. I'd guess that many games will render internally at 1080p and upscale to 4K, while using that extra graphics horsepower for additional eye candy.

The PS4Pro might put a nail in the coffin of the XBone, but Microsoft will have the last laugh as it buries Sony with its much more powerful XBox Scorpio (6 vs 4.2 TFLOPs + 4K Blu-ray + Mouse & Keyboard support).

I loved the single player, although I do have yet to actually finish it...

You should stick with it... Unlike Doom3, the SP is actually worth finishing.
The later levels get more frantic, with more enemies and it feels more like DOOM.

Fantastic single-player campaign... but dying every 10 to 20 seconds is not my idea of fun multi-player.

I'm just tired of this new trend of reintroducing 5 to 10 year old games. Rockstar should be announcing RDR 2, no?

There are rumors that RDR2 has been in development for years now, so it should be announced very soon. It should be available on PC at launch, so it makes sense to release the original on PC as well.

Red Dead Redemption was one of the best games I've ever played, and I've played them all.
This game NEEDS a PC port... It's simply too good to miss!

I've beat all of the Halo games on solo Legendary, and while painful at times, I enjoyed every minute of it... at least until Halo 5. Yes, this was the best looking Halo ever, but with its boring and forgettable story, brutal difficulty, poor squad AI, and Master Chief being benched for most of the game, Halo5 simply was not fun. If it weren't for gamers' OCD, I would've quit long before finishing the campaign. MP wasn't much better, and the lack of split-screen co-op was simply inexcusable. Stick a fork in it, the Halo series is dead. Time to move on.

I enjoyed Marvel Ultimate Alliance on the 360.
It's sad that the PC port is a mess, but if you want to play console games, you should buy a console.

News Comments > Sid Meier's Civilization VI Preorder Bonus

Whoop Dee Doo! Woohoo The Aztecs FREE for my preorder! W00t

Of course, the Aztecs were a standard civilization in every previous Civ game... and on day one without a preorder.
I had already planned on preordering Civ6 (I've played them all), but this crap is making me think twice... What other standard civilizations are not included in the base game? Why not release a new civilization as a bonus... the Atlanteans perhaps?

I wouldn't mind another WWII CoD.
Even better, a time traveling CoD. One minute we're playing with muskets, pistols and sabers... the next with WWII rifles and SMGs... modern assault rifles... even blasters and plasma-sabers.

How about where you're fighting WW2 with blasters and plasma sabers. Not like in recent Wolfensteins with alt-history, but you have those weapons and no one else does.

And in MP, for every prestige you could pick a modern or future weapon to keep throughout history.
Sorry newb, your single shot musket is no match for my blaster rifle.

But honestly, I think I'd be satisfied with 10 seconds of ghosting to avoid being spawn shot.

I triple boot Windows 10, Windows 7, and XP...
I use Windows 7 daily, and only boot Win10 or XP when I have to.
IMHO Windows 7 > 10 > XP > 8

As I've said many times...
It's best to play console games on a console, and PC games on a PC.

As a long time PC gamer, I used to spend thousands to keep my PC at the top of the performance heap... but it's just not worth it anymore.
Between the XBone and Windows 10, we can all thank Microsh!t for killing gaming on the PC.

I remember this as a fun game, although I'm a little foggy on the details... it was obviously inspired by the movie Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure.
I wouldn't mind playing it again, but I'll wait for a sale on this remastered edition.

YES, you should upgrade your XB1 with a SSD or at least an SSHD!

I have both a 1TB Seagate SSHD and a 250GB Samsung 850 EVO SSD on my XBone... When I first installed the SSHD I did a few load tests, here are some examples: GTAV SP = 106s --> 61; MGSV:TPP = 102s --> 79s; Forza6 Menu = 48s --> 30s, Monza Short 23.5s --> 17s
I misplaced my SSD benchmarks, but it is noticeably faster than the SSHD. On average, games load in half the time on the SSD versus the stock drive.

But there's another important reason for an SSHD or SSD upgrade... Open world games such as GTAV and Fallout 4 run with fewer framerate hiccups and less texture pop-in due to faster texture streaming. Happy

Important: MOVE your games to the external drive... If you copy them, it can actually slow load times as the XB1 appears to read and verify both copies.

I was shocked how many podcasts I heard praise this game in the game of the year choices. I have a very hard time believing it can stand beside games like MGS V, witcher 3, and others.

I remain highly skeptical.

I'm currently playing Rise of the Tomb Raider on the XB1 (about 2/3 complete) and while it's no Witcher 3 or MGSV, it is the best Tomb Raider I've ever played. It is more open world than the last game and has upgradable weapons and equipment including bows with fire/poison/exp arrows, pistols, rifles, shotguns, etc. This game feels as much like FarCry as Tomb Raider and is fairly lengthy... well worth $60. Also, actress Camilla Luddington does an excellent job as Lara Croft.
