Thread In Case it is Revealed Tomorrow During SoP - Final Guesses on Female Ratchet Name From Rift Apart?
Ratchet / Ratchina / something Ratchet related. I don't really understand why it'd be a big reveal unless it's directly related to a character we already know.

I’m not sure I understand the big deal (outside of the already problematic Facebook being mandatory). Says you can sign out of Messengrr and not use it if you want? I’d personally love this feature and if I’m being forced to sign into Facebook, may as well utilise it.

Thread Will Animal Crossing overtake MK8 as the Switch’s top title in 2021?
100% yes. It probably already has or has come incredibly close to doing so. MK8 was included with a bunch of Switches last year right? I don’t think those copies are being included

We can obviously only talk about the earlier stages of the game so far but this is the Breath of the Wild moment for Mario for me (or at least a taste of what it could be) It just makes such sense for this to be the future of Mario. 10 minutes of 60 FPS gameplay footage here: Our preview here:

Thread Do you think more media outlets also should review the console versions of Cyberpunk 2077?
Honestly it’s a tricky one (and speaks more to why reviews at launch are kind of redundant from a technical review). If the issues are all bugs/performance issues, then they can and probably will be fixed.

Thread Joel Hopkins claims he wasn't sent a review Switch because he refused to say certain positive things about it.
This is a huge point and one that a lot of people are missing. Again, he got the console through ways that he shouldn't have, and Nintendo tried to gag him. He's obviously still holding a weird vendetta years later.

Thread Joel Hopkins claims he wasn't sent a review Switch because he refused to say certain positive things about it.
I can go as far as saying that I've never EVER been asked for a PR rep, big or small to say ANYTHING specific about anything ever.. If you think any outlet would let that slide, you're wrong. Would would Nintendo ask anyone to say that a console is small or robust? Also, the Switch is small and robust.. Why would anyone need to be told they have to say that lol? Look at it in comparison to the Wii U tablet..

Thread Joel Hopkins claims he wasn't sent a review Switch because he refused to say certain positive things about it.
This is not true. This guy is a notorious liar. Having worked with Nintendo Australia for a long time (and having been one of the Australian outlets sent a Switch prior to launch), there was nothing of the kind in the embargo. It's utterly ridiculous and I can't believe people in this thread are even questioning that tbh. My memory is that this guy obtained a Switch through other means prior to launch, and was then putting out content, which we all know Nintendo doesn't like.

Thread PS5 Displays SDR Content in HDR Container
I'm not sure if this is why my HDMI 2.1 Samsung TV has been wigging out, but both consoles have been fairly weird in that port. When I wake my PS5 from rest mode, it goes completely washed out and can't be fixed without a full reboot. Likewise opening some games just completely ruins the display as well. It appears at some point the HDR link between my consoles and TV is lost.

Thread Sony not offering Spider-Man upgrade path for PS4 owners (yet) should be criticised more
I thought they were offering it? I know it's been confirmed for MM, but surely PS4 owners of the original game will get the upgrade too?also supports a next-gen upgrade path, so even if you aren’t ready to upgrade to PS5 just yet, there’s nothing stopping you from buying the PS4 version and enjoying the game alongside everyone else at launch. While it doesn’t have the enhancements made possible by the console in the PS5 version, the game still looks beautiful on PS4 and PS4 Pro, and you can rest easy that when you do make the jump to PS5, the game comes with you.

Thread [Bloomberg Japan] Sony cuts PS5 production by 4 million units after production yield issues
I'm confused. Wasn't the initial report by Bloomberg that Sony had upped production to 10 million units by the same time-frame? When did this change? "Sony Corp. is roughly doubling its PlayStation 5 production to 10 million units this year as it sees the prolonged effects of the Covid-19 pandemic boosting demand for gaming, according to people familiar with its plans. The electronics giant has informed assembly partners and suppliers it’s radically increasing orders for its next-generation console, though logistics may yet pose a challenge to delivering all those machines on time for the holiday shopping season, the people said, asking to remain anonymous. Sony had previously aimed to produce 5 million to 6 million PS5 units by the end of March 2021."

Thread Crossfire X - Remedy's signature style shines in a first person shooter
Thanks for sharing. Honestly, I'm super surprised more people aren't talking about this and Microsoft hasn't shown more. I wish I could show you what I got to see. The game is Remedy through and through (and the trailer just didn't deliver that IMO). It's the best parts of a lot of Remedy games meshed into a FPS game. The UI is just as striking as Control and the powers are damn cool.

Thread USgamer: The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening Drops Frames Like Marin Drops Beats, But it's Not Too Bad
I read that you played it docked, and I'm guessing the person that captured this video played it docked too. I played it handheld and it was extremely noticeable and all over the place, and considering the Lite is releasing alongside this game (which has no docked option), I think it's a lot more valid to start judging games on how they run in handheld mode. There literally will be NO other option on the system launching on the same day as this game.

Thread USgamer: The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening Drops Frames Like Marin Drops Beats, But it's Not Too Bad
It's definitely a big deal. I'm nowhere near someone who worries about frame rate, but I noticed it without seconds of booting up game. It's not the fact that the frame rate is terrible, but the fact that it is constant and drops from 60 to 30-40 constantly. Initially, i thought it was a design decision when leaving houses, being deep in battle, but nope. Obviously, it doesn't make it anywhere near unplayable and it's a fantastic game, but to say it's not a big deal would be pure fanboyism.

Thread Anthem Review Thread
I actually disagree with this to some extent. I don't think it's wrong to have reviewed the game earlier than when the day one patch came out, but it was actually out two full days before launch (five days after outlets go review codes). Given a game like Anthem is going to exist as a GAAS for 2-3 years, it does seem a little harsh reviewing pre day one patch, given that Bioware had said from the get-go that there would be a significant day one patch. I personally wouldn't feel good about a review being up before launch, when the game has already changed quite dramatically. You're right in saying that the patch wasn't game changing to the actual content, so if that's the reason you were pinning the game fair enough, but if it was for load times or disconnections, then it does feel wrong to pin a game for that full-well knowing that a day one patch was on the way (two days before launch).
