AlexStinton commented on Review: Ace Combat: Infinity (PlayStation 3):

@Verenti Interesting, if there are differences they must be really subtle as I was running the same paths through stages, hitting what appeared to be the same targets each time. While the value could well have changed I certainly came away with the strong impression that what I was seeing was the same. I'll have to go back and have a look again.

AlexStinton commented on Review: Rayman Legends (PlayStation 4):

@craigun From what I've seen elsewhere there's virtually no difference between the PS3 and PS4 versions. The graphics, while looking fantastic are not exactly taxing to even the last-gen systems.

In terms of difficulty it's not the hardest game if you stick to the main levels but start having a go at the timed invasion levels and that's a different story.

AlexStinton commented on Review: Zombeer (PlayStation Network):

@Swiket I don't know what you're talking about, only true gamers invert!

On a serious note I can play either way but I prefer inverted. The fact the option is missing from Zombeer illustrates one of many things missing from the game that anyone would expect to find.

To see how a downloadable FPS can be done right everyone should play Call of Juarez: Gunslinger.

Is one of my 2014 predictions coming true already? I think the delay is more to get out of the way of some big releases over the next couple of months. The summer drought is a perfect release window for Drive Club to succeed in.

AlexStinton commented on Review: Zen Pinball 2 (PlayStation 4):

@belmont If you already own these tables on PS3 or PS Vita (even if you got them from PS+) you can import them to PlayStation 4 at no charge by pressing square on the main menu. It is important to understand that the import process works ONLY from Zen Pinball 2 to Zen Pinball 2 (i.e. NOT Marvel Pinball PS3 to Zen Pinball 2 PS4)

AlexStinton commented on Review: Zen Pinball 2 (PlayStation 4):

@way2easy It was a tough one to score, The biggest problem for me was that Zen Studios tend to overdo the presentation on the tables. I get the impression they come up with loads of great ideas and implement them all when they should be more selective as it overshadows the actual pinball part of the game.

They also really need to get someone better to do the voice for Han Solo on the Star Wars tables as the guy they've got is really.... really.... bad.

That said it's a good pinball game and with Arcade Pinball also coming to PS4 there's a bit of a pinball renaissance going on. All we need to do now is put Zen Pinball and Arcade Pinball in a room together and make them have some sort of pinball love child.

DmC is a must play. I loved that game so much and I find all the hate it gets bemusing. If you haven't played it before you've missed out on a a brilliant reboot that had such a great style of presentation.

PLAY IT ! (by order of Alex Stinton)

AlexStinton commented on Review: Need for Speed: Rivals (PlayStation 4):

Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit was one of my favourite games of the last generation and so far I'm disappointed with Need For Speed: Rivals.

The always on multiplayer just isn't clicking with me and that sucks. Maybe I'm part of a wider gaming problem.

I think I just wanted Hot Pursuit again but instead I got something new and innovative and I can't embrace it at all. I see this all the time in forums from gamer's that don't want change and I laugh and point at them for their inability embrace the new . How ironic that I was one of them all along.

Oh well I might go back and play Hot Pursuit ; )

AlexStinton commented on Review: flOw (PlayStation 4):

@ThreadShadow I believe that if you own it on PS3 then you will be able to download it for free on either PS4 or Vita via cross buy. Also I don't believe there's anything new in the PS4 version but I never played the PS3 version so don't take my word for it.

AlexStinton commented on Review: flOw (PlayStation 4):

@gbanas92 Thanks! It was an interesting game to review as I never it played on the PS3, so I was glad to have the chance to fill this gap in my gaming knowledge.

It's a shame it got delayed in North America. We seem to be getting treated quite well in Europe at the moment when it comes to PSN games. I'm sure it won't last though.

AlexStinton commented on Wow, the PS4 Is the UK's Fastest Selling Conso...:

I had a chat with the manager of the local GAME store over the weekend and he said they're backed up to next year with PS4 preorders. That said they were offering walk ins and the second wave of pre order customers the chance to buy what I would only describe as rip off bundles. It's a shame to see gamers being taken advantage of but I guess that's supply and demand for you.
