I'm playing the original on PS3 and it doesn't look too shabby at all. Makes me wonder how the remaster looks.

Halloween update for Overwatch has dropped, and it's a pretty good effort. A nice little Horde Mode and some very cool skins, which can be purchased via game currency this time.

If anyone wants to try out CoD: Infinite Warfare this weekend, I've got a few beta codes going spare for PS4.

Makes me realise how crap Fallout 4's graphics are.
You can't compare the two games graphically. One is open world the other is pretty linear.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming then. Only a year to wait.

Seems like games take forever to arrive these days. FIFA's aside, of course.
If it's slower than me, dumber than me and it tastes good ... tough titty.

same here... I've been waiting for a WW1 1st person shooter on console for a long time. This looks epic - campaign and life consuming multi-player both. I can't wait to jump in.

Some of the environments in Deus Ex look really nice but the characters look pretty average, with odd animations and awful lip synching. Rise of the Tomb Raider came out before and looked much nicer

You on PS4 or Xbone? On PS4 myself, could squad up for some Team play?

Yeah, I meant the environments mostly. Some of the character models in Deus Ex are terrible (almost Fallout 3 terrible). The frame rate is a bit uneven on the PS4 version too. Still, when you're outside in Prague and there's all the NPCs wandering about with all the lights and the cars and detritus - it is really impressive.

I'm really enjoying the game, even if I find the plot incomprehensible.

Orange Box is now backwards compatible on Xone. That's decent.

Quick question r.e. video playback on Xbox One.
I have a 2TB usb HDD with video files.
I have 6 separate folders. 5 have about 20-30 files in each and these all show up and play fine.
The last folder has over 1300 files but none show up!

I used the hdd with my nvidia shield so I know they work.

Any ideas?

Looks like they are just re-releasing the same old games again rather than some other, more desirable NG titles i.e. Windjammers, Pulstar etc. Lost count of how many times they have re-hashed KOF '94 and Metal Slug.

Would have been nice if they'd at least put this version up on PSN:
