Review: Half-Life Alyx is VR at Its Finest

A watershed moment for VR gaming.

In the past several days, I have gone back and forth on what I wanted to write for the Half-Life: Alyx review. I have gone through several revisions and at least two full rewrites now. It's not that I am at a loss for words. It's more that I just have too much that I want to say. I want to go on and on about how neat this sequence was or how refined this aspect was. The result of that review was just some rambling word salad that made for a poor reading...
 

The Last of Us Part II Delayed Indefinitely

This decision comes direct from Sony.

In the early afternoon on April 2, word came direct from Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE), that both The Last of Us Part II and Marvel's Iron Man VR are delayed "until further notice." The reason behind these delays is, you guessed it, due to the ongoing global crisis.

Word first came from the official PlayStation Twitter account. ...
 

Valve Offers Suggestions on Reducing Steam Bandwidth

Budget that bandwidth during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Everyone is at home. If not, they probably should be. 2020 has been crazy wild and it's still only March. One of the things people have been doing more of, is playing games. What else is there to do when you're under quarantine? Work? HA! Screw that!

The problem with being at home all the time like this, is that the network in your home, country, or even globally can be impacted significantly. People have more time now...
 

Review: Persona 5 Royal

A master class in improving upon what is already great.

In September 2016, the original release of Persona 5 made its debut in Japan for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. It eventually had its Western market debut in April 2017. The game was developed by P-Studio and published in North America by Atlus. Despite a few minor issues, it was largely regarded as a fantastic JRPG with excellent art, an intriguing cast of characters, enjoyable gameplay, and even a rad soundtrack. Persona...
 

PlayStation 5 System Specs Revealed

We finally have the full next-gen picture.

As Sony's Mark Cerny wraps up his promised PlayStation 5 deep dive, the specs and other details for the PlayStation 5 have been released. So far, we know that the PlayStation 5 will be backwards compatible with most PlayStation 4 titles. Cerny seems to have stopped short of saying it will be backwards compatible with other generations, which is unfortunate.

We also learned today that Sony is putting a lot of effort into their...

  • FXAA Ruins Texture Quality in Battlefield 4

    FXAA Ruins Texture Quality in Battlefield 4

    We already know how FXAA use tends to blur textures in games while simultaneously serving as a quick method of AA. However, it seems as though FXAA use in Battlefield 4 blurs textures more noticeably than in any other game.

    HardOCP suggest turning the "Antialiasing Post" setting to "Off" in order to fix the blurred texture issue. The other AA settings in the game should be ok to adjust to your own tastes, just leave Antialiasing Post "off."

    Microsoft Must Really Like the 'Xbox Huge' Meme

    So, Microsoft made another giant Xbox, this time it's a giant Xbox One. Unlike the previous large console of theirs, there is only one of this One and it's in Vancouver. O Canada, what are you doing up there? It's said to be 40 feet long and 20 feet wide. Microsoft has hinted that the console will "unlock" after people "pledge" their gamertags and/or souls. Gamers can pledge their tags in person, online, or from the Xbox 360 dashboard. I'm going assume this is for residents of Canada o...

    First Titanfall is Exclusive to Xbox and PC, Vince Zampella is Not Happy

    Sorry hopeful PlayStation 4 owners, it looks as though Titanfall from Respawn Entertainment won't be headed to your platform. EA has stated that the game will remain exclusive to the PC, Xbox 360, and Xbox One for the entirety of its life.

    EA CFO, Blake Jorgensen, said this during today's financial call for EA.
    "In the case of Titanfall, it's a brand new IP and it's exclusive only for the life of the title on Xbox One and Xbox 360 and PC."
