Its all about Game Pass

Reviewed by on

For some reference I have been gaming on PlayStation almost exclusively since the PS2. Its pretty much because of Japanese games that have kept me on Sony systems after all these years. So i picked up a Nintendo Switch a year ago, ive noticed that almost every Japanese game that used to only be on PS is now on Nintendo Switch. I also burn through games very fast, there are some months where I can spend up to 10k on games, alot of these are third party games that are on Game Pass.

So they way I see this is that Nintendo can take care of my Japanese games and everything else will be played on Game Pass, for someone like me that plays tons of games, this is going to save me a crazy amount of money. For the very first time im looking at the PS5 and thinking there is no reason to get it. Jim Ryan has already come out and said that setting up Games Pass for Sony is not viable.

They recently announced the PS Plus Instant games collection, ok so that's probably what we are getting as competition for Game Pass. Problem is we know nothing about it, is it an extra cost ? Which consoles will it be available on ? How expansive it actually is ? Do those titles showcased actually stay there, unlike on PSNow. Will PSNow get improvements to compete with Game Pass? because right now its complete garbage. I don't understand Sony man, zero transparency or explanation across every aspect of this launch. If the instant plus collection turns out to be underwhelming and they don't come up with a plan to compete with Game Pass then going to have to get a Series X and let Nintendo do the rest of the work in the Japanese department. GG Sony. Never thought id write up something like this but here you go, its happening.

Next Gen at it's Be(a)st

Reviewed by on

This next gen console has everything a gamer could want: ultra-fast SSD, more than enough RAM and a killer 8-core CPU. In short, it's a beast of a machine in terms of raw power. Backwards compatibility will, as usual with Xbox, be a game changer. Most supported titles from all previous generations of Xbox will run better than before, not to mention the next gen titles that await us. Unlike the PS5, saved games and progress from previous generation Xbox consoles will be ready and waiting for you, from day one. Even your previous gen accessories like controllers will work and you won't be forced to fork out more money for 'new' controllers. With Xbox, everything just works; add the highly affordable Xbox Game Pass and you won't be left wanting for games to play-you even get a discount as a member if you choose to buy the game. With extra free games from Xbox Live Gold (worthy of your time), no more depressing and rainy days on PlayStation Plus with it's anemic selection of two games every month and exorbitant prices for most games on their store. If you want the best a game console has to offer, with a focus on YOU as the gamer - look no further - if you want the same old tired 'exclusive' franchises with prettier graphics and no substance, stick to PS5.

Microsoft Love their Fans.

Reviewed by on

I have a PS4 and use my Xbox One WAY MORE!!! I prefer the Microsoft Exclusives- I love Forza Motorsport and Forza Horizon so much I will buy this just to play those two titles alone. The Gamepass is bigger and better than PS Plus which I only had for 3 months.

Enrico K left out some vital information. The Gamepass on Xbox one is quite different to the gamepass on PC which has lesser games and more clunkier app features. Also very few pc's (if ever?) have a 4K Blu-Ray disc drive- So This platform works for me.

I however will wait for some sort of forza bunble since Im still happy with my Xbox One S :)

Good choice for value and gaming with friends

Reviewed by on

There is not much between the Xbox Series X and the PS5. Not really easy to say much before they come out. Best thing to do is go look at a review from a reputable game/tech review company. The thing that pulls me away from the PS5 and to the Xbox Series X is the game pass. The value for money is amazing! For about R30 more a month than Playstation plus the Game Pass gives you 100s of games, and first party titles on day 1. It is like netflix for gaming. PS5 has great first party games but most to all are single player. Xbox tends to focus on gaming with friends and most of their first party games are multiplayer or co-op, and they are pushing for cross play across the industry. I game to play with friends on all platforms and Xbox gives me more options to do so! Plus if you have a PS4 you will still be able to play the new first party games for a year or 2.

Xbox Series X

Reviewed by on

The Xbox Series X is a great option for those who cannot afford a good high a midrange PC. The problem is that it does not have the exclusive titles that differentiates it from any other platform. If you want great mature games you are better off getting a PS5. The extra +-20% power is not worth the sacrifice of great games. The PS5 is highly customized and in reality perform much closer or even better in some cases than the Series X and is more developer friendly. Also there is the advantage of a higher install base which means 3rd party games will be developed more with the PS5 in mind rather than the Series X.

Good Game

Reviewed by on

This is a good game, but not a great game. However, there's lots of potential if they decide to release more downloadable content in future.

Pros:

- Graphics
- Adjustable difficulty levels
- Story
- Option to swap characters often. Helps a bit with repetition factor

Cons:

- Limited characters and moves available until much later in game
- Best parts of game are too far in
- Repetition. Beat-em-ups can be like this, and level designs and objectives are repeated
- Limited unlockables (or, it's not easy to unlock everything and can cost money)

A fantastic compilation, even if lacking additions

Reviewed by on

Replaying these games after years of not having seen them is a delight. The additions are the bare minimum that Nintendo could do for this, but the advantage is that the games are faithful to the originals. Super Mario 64 plays incredibly well, and compared to the Wii U Virtual Console release, it is a completely different experience without input delay. Super Mario Sunshine's graphics still hold up, and the lack of analog L/R buttons is not an issue at all; though the game is still frustrating at times. Super Mario Galaxy looks and plays fantastically. The use of gyro in place of the IR pointer from the Wii Remote is just as responsive.

The music is great to listen to. A solid package, even if the additions are basically naught. Super Mario Galaxy 2 would have been nice, but I presume Nintendo has something else planned for that.

Not the DoW you are hoping for

Reviewed by on

I have been a Dawn of War fan since the first game was released. Unfortunately it would appear that this game is suffering the same faith as other games where the first one was the best. The lack of races especially being a 40K Game is unacceptable in my opinion and the old school RTS feel of the first DoW has definitely been lost.

The Last of Us Part II showcases the perfect combination of action, light hearted fun with a emotional roller coaster.

Reviewed by on

The Last of Us Part II showcases the power of the PS4 with amazing graphics, smooth exploration and great action. Like all naughty dog games it provides a great story telling which with touch the hearts of the players, the battles are challenging, varied and full of action and the game encourages the player to explore and think about each move they make as your will be mixing it up with, stealth, guns blazing and improvisation.

The last of us is one of the best survival horror games out there, its something that Resident evil titles have been missing since the first 4.

All of these together create the greatest masterpiece, and a must for PS4 Owners.

I also would recommend playing the first one as that is now a 5 out of 5 masterpiece.
