Among the best remakes in recent memory, Resident Evil 2 is a true survival horror classic, rebuilt on Capcom's cutting edge RE Engine. Compared to the PlayStation and N64 originals there's a satisfying technical upheaval to show for that 20 year gap. You get real-time cutscenes, volumetric lighting and the freeing of its camera to allow third person shooter controls. Better still? The team targets 60 frames per second, but sadly it only comes to full fruition on certain platforms. Indeed, comparing PlayStation 4 and Xbox One today, it's clear 60fps is better held on Pro and X models - while the base machines, especially Xbox One S, show signs of being left behind. It's worth touching on the visual points first. We saw it in the game's '1-shot' 30 minute demo, but with final code in hand it's confirmed. Base PS4 and Xbox One each push for a 1920x1080 resolution, but in practise there's more going on under the hood, notably on Microsoft's console. Image quality is blurrier, despite … [Read more...] about Resident Evil 2 remake plays best on PS4 Pro and Xbox One X

The countdown is over and we’ve solidified our list for the top 50 games of 2018, which covers the gamut of big-name blockbusters and small-team triumphs.

Out of our top 50 picks, 29 can be played on the PS4. Of those, five are exclusive to Sony’s platform: Shadow of the Colossus, Astro Bot Rescue Mission (for PlayStation VR), Marvel’s Spider-Man, Tetris Effect, and our #1 game of the year, God of War. Speaking of, as for the inclusion of games like Shadow of the Colossus, which technically first came well before 2018, well, what we said in the top 50 post holds true here as well: You may notice the inclusion of games that were either fully released or made available in Early Access prior to 2018. Because many games change from update to … [Read more...] about The best PlayStation 4 games of 2018
The countdown is over and we’ve solidified our list for the top 50 games of 2018, which covers the gamut of big-name blockbusters and small-team triumphs. But we know it’s a pretty long list, so here are the picks that can be played on Xbox One. Out of our top 50 picks, nearly half — 23 games, to be specific — can be played on Xbox One. Of those, two are console exclusive:Forza Horizon 4, and Sea of Thieves. And as for the inclusion of games like Hollow Knight which technically first came out prior to 2018, well, what we said in the top 50 post holds true here as well: You may notice the inclusion of games that were either fully released or made available in Early Access prior to 2018. Because many games change from update to update, let alone year to year, we will include previously available games that receive a significant update within the year or become available on a platform that substantially impacts how that game is experienced. For example, Fortnite … [Read more...] about The best Xbox One games of 2018

Microsoft has given Xbox head Phil Spencer a vote of confidence, promoting him to executive vice president of gaming. In return, Spencer will be expected to solve the company’s immediate problem: The Xbox One doesn’t have enough big-name exclusives. As we tumble into the mass-consumer era of this console generation, the Xbox One is far behind the PlayStation 4 in terms of global install base. Microsoft refuses to release hardware sales numbers, but analysts we spoke to estimate the Xbox One at around 35 million, compared to the PlayStation 4 at more than 73 million. That yawning 2-to-1 disparity is unlikely to get better this year. A look at the two companies’ 2018 exclusives roster makes for grim reading, at least for Xbox fans. This year, the PlayStation 4 will offer up The Last of Us Part 2, Spider-Man, God of War, Dreams, and Detroit: Become Human as major releases from highly credible studios. Sony has also been busy locking down third-party deals for games … [Read more...] about The Xbox One has a serious exclusive games problem
