    I thought I would start this back up. Some great games coming out in the next month.

    This morning, I'll be waiting outside EB Games for it to open so I can pick up Fallout 4. I think this will be my reaction when the doors start opening.

    I'm off to get mine in 15 minutes.

    And now Vault-Boy stands proudly atop my work pc. Shame I'm stuck here at work instead of at home playing Fallout.

    Fallout as a series never really grabbed my interest enough to play any of them. Maybe it's the guns.[FONT=arial, sans-serif]I know it's a lot more than that, being a Bethesda game and all (and I LOVED Skyrim), but[/FONT] I'm not a big fan of mostly-shooters in general - Red Dead (I give it a pass cos it's ye olde guns), Uncharted, TLoU etc are about as far as I go. Having said that, I picked up Destiny for $15 at JB and am quite enjoying myself. I think it's the good loot drop system that keeps tempting you to get better gear every mission. Some bloody hard quests if you're playing solo though

    Thinking of picking Fallout 4 up but I'm currently working my way through Uncharted remastered collection which I'm quite enjoying.

    Never played the original releases, and while the first installment did feel quite dated in many ways, it was still a fun little jaunt. Most of the way through the second which is an absolute blast. Almost done, so I think I'll churn through the third and then jump into some post apocalyptic action.
  7. Playing fallout 4, huge fallout 1 and 2 fan, I was never big on 3 and New Vegas tbh, but I'm digging 4.
  8. The biggest thing holding me back right now is the pile of shame in my steam library. So many games to get through.
  9. Yeah I know what you mean Harry Sack, so much of my library I haven't gotten far or haven't even touched because of bundled deals lol.

    I have to finish MGS V before starting on Fallout. Only 25% done so far, should be right in time for Christmas
  11. Is there any differences between the PS4 and XBone versions of Fallout IV and MGSV?

    I remember last generation, the PS3 really struggled with Bethesda games to the point where they were damn near unplayable. Is it a similar story? Or have they got everything right this generation?

    This answer may or may not influence my consumer activity over the coming months.

    From what I've read, XB1 has stuttering on Fallout, where PS4 is pretty much okay.
    I've had similar problems with MGS on XB1 too. Don't know if it's just me though, because I haven't seen anyone else with the same problem.

    Edit: Definitely not a big issue though, it's certainly not unplayable, just mildly annoying occasionally

  13. I haven't had stuttering on mine. However, I'm told the game looks better on PS4. I really was expecting far more than the game has so far produced. The characters aren't super detailed like I would expect, they still walk like computer characters.

    I was expecting GTA V or better, and I couldn't say it's as good as that.

    However, the gameplay is really good, I'm really into the game, it took an hour or 2 but once you get through the first few bits of bullshit, it's really good. I can't wait to get home and throw it on again.
  14. I'm done with Call of Duty.

    Took 2 days to acquire it.. And after so many issues trying to get the game to **** atart, there is just so much lag it's unbelievable.

    It's not an issue with my computer.. I tested it to make sure.

    A lot of people are having the same problem, as well. So much lag.

    I would suggest to anyone looking to buy it to wait a month or two until they release patches.

    But yeah, even when they do, I'm not bothering with it.

    Call of Duty used to be good. Now it's garbage.
  15. The PC shots look fairly decent

    I remember when I got a "new" computer and managed to run Duke Nukem 3D in 640x480. Thinking "woah that must take some intense processing to render that sucker"...

  17. You could check out Digital Foundry compares on Eurogamer for the detailed answer but from what i have read the difference is quite minimal. Slight benefit to the PS4 in terms of a smoother experience but i have also read quicker load times if you had the Xbox One Elite with the improved hard drive.

    In my opinion, the differences on the 2 games you mentioned should not have much bearing on which system you purchase.
