PS4_FRAME-RATES_DARK_SOULS_2_SCHOLAR_OF_THE_FIRST_SIN

In the constant struggle between the PS4 and the Xbox One two particular things always pop up and result in one console being considered superior to the other. These things are frame rate and resolution. Console gamers are becoming more and more picky these days and they are not prepared to settle for anything less than 1080p and 60 fps when it comes to their games. Both Sony and Microsoft are doing their best to fulfill the wishes of their fans, but one company is arguably better than the other and that’s Sony. The PS4 has no problems with offering 1080p resolution and 60 fps on most titles, including on the Dark Souls 2 definitive edition, also known as Scholar of the First Sin.

Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin will be released on April 7th for consoles and it includes both the original title and all of its DLC packs. The game runs at 1080p on both the PS4 and Xbox One, but it appears that there are some differences between the two versions it terms of frame rate. Eurogamer’s Digital Foundry took the game out for an early spin and conducted an in-depth analysis on it, much like they do with most highly anticipated released titles. What they’ve learned is that there is a slight, but noticeable performance gap between the PS4 and the Xbox One when running the game. Apparently, the PS4 is able to offer 60 fps, albeit with occasional drops that take it down to 50, but the Xbox One struggles a bit more to keep up and you can reportedly expect the frames to hover in the 40-50 range most of the time.

Basically, we’re looking at a 10 fps difference that’s pretty constant according to the article. Interestingly, the Xbox One version of Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin already received a small patch, but the performance is still inferior when compared to the PS4 version regardless. Perhaps more patches will follow. In any case, Microsoft still has a bit of time to make improvements so if you’re on the Xbox One don’t lose hope just yet. Meanwhile, Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin is already available for PC starting today. Check out the trailer below.

Feeling a bit buzzed The Last of Us Pedro Pascal from HBO wins SAG Award

Pedro Pascal may have indulged in a few too many Dark ‘n’ Stormy’s before the 2024 SAG Awards, where he clinched the award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series for his portrayal of Joel Miller in the HBO adaptation of The Last of Us. Appearing slightly intoxicated, the actor portraying Joel confidently stepped onto the stage and stated, “This is incorrect for several reasons. I’ve had a few drinks. I believed I could become intoxicated. Thanks, HBO! Oh boy, I feel a bit embarrassed, but I really appreciate this.”

Pascal faced tough competition from Succession actors Brian Cox, Kieran Culkin, and Matthew MacFadyen, along with The Morning Show’s Billy Crudup. He emerged victorious for the award and, seemingly oblivious to his defeated competitors, remarked:

“I’ve been in the union since 1999, so this is a tremendous honor. “We’re on Netflix,” Pascal noted, mentioning the streaming platform’s position on censorship. “I might experience a surge of anxiety and decide to depart.” Pascal expressed gratitude to showrunner Craig Mazin, Naughty Dog head Neill Druckmann, colleagues, and production staff for their valuable contributions.

REYNATIS appears as a rugged yet strangely attractive action RPG for PS5 and PS4

It’s unfair to criticize the time it takes to develop PS5 and PS4 games, only to then judge REYNATIS for appearing a bit messy. Developers are investing significant sums in creating high-budget games nowadays, so maybe it’s about time we adjust our expectations and embrace slightly less polished releases instead.

This introduction sets the stage for FuRyu’s latest game, which could easily fit in as a late-gen launch on the PS3, but that doesn’t take away from its potential for enjoyment. A team of former Square Enix employees created this game, which explores a power struggle among magicians in Shibuya. Some aim to flaunt their abilities, while others prefer to keep them hidden.

The setting is truly remarkable; having visited Shibuya, it captures the essence of the iconic location perfectly. The combat appears solid, but there are performance issues to address, especially with the Japanese release scheduled for July 25th. Although there has been no official announcement regarding a Western release, we anticipate that a publisher will likely pick it up later this year.

Leaked footage of LittleBigPlanet Hub on PS3 brings a nostalgic wave

Once upon a time, Sony revealed Little Big Planet HUB, a free-to-play exclusive for the PS3 available on the PS Store. It seems that the game will merge all the content from LittleBigPlanet and LittleBigPlanet 2, giving fans the opportunity to play, create, and share without any cost. The concept was ambitious, which likely made the platform holder hesitant.

It is common knowledge that the planned release in August 2013 never materialized, with many speculating that it evolved into Little Big Planet 3. More than a decade later, footage from a beta version of LittleBigPlanet Hub has surfaced after an old NDA expired.

There is not much that is unexpected here: the gameplay resembles LittleBigPlanet, featuring floaty physics, prize bubbles, and narration by Stephen Fry. It’s intriguing to come across cancelled titles such as this one. A free-to-play version of LittleBigPlanet could potentially thrive in today’s landscape of creative live services similar to Roblox and Minecraft.
