So Obama is coming to Athens tommorow. And between the center closing down/cell phone jammers/snipers etc, this was the only chance for some shopping down town.

For some weird reason DS was available for 20 euro!

(no patch)


Playing the intro now. It's buttery smooth! And playing after the DS2 remaster, it's even more obvious how much they dropped the ball with it...

For those that don't know, God of War meets Zelda.

It's easily in my top 5 of last gen.

Buy to support a possible third game.

One of the few games I deinstalled on steam after playing for a few hours. I was so disappointed! I'm not a fan of the style at all. I like every game this one copies a thousand times better.

Just my opinion of course. I see what people love about it even if I can't feel the same.

Deinstalled? Or uninstalled?

40GB? For a remaster?

That seems big.

I mean, the concept of a remaster pretty much already guarantees a larger filesize over the original. How much larger is really dictated by the amount of work done. So I don't really see a correlation between remaster and filesize besides the first mentioned.

Thinking of picking this up since i haven't played 1 ( but finished 2) . Is it looking any better? I tried to start it a while back but it really was looking like a old gen title.

Yup, the game has problems with the cut scenes.

Apart from the lip sync I mentioned before, I had 3 cut scenes that randomly got skipped.

The third was the one after beating the first dungeon boss. It skipped and the dialogue kept playing during gameplay.

I'm guessing that's the reason for the delay...

Even if it gets fixed with a day one patch, you cannot release a game at this state with half the consoles not connected.

Pity as the rest is perfect.

I enjoyed the original, though the way it ended was both cool and super frustrating at the same time. That they didn't correct that with the sequel is among the greatest failures in video game development I can recall.

So this is 60fps, already platinumned but I love this game, so I'm going to see what upgrades they bring including what modes they have on the Pro....

Been looking forward to this one, but not downloading it after seeing that file size. Yikes.

Plus there'll likely need to be a patch.

The game broke street date. For all we know there is a day 1 patch that addresses a few issues :X

Call of Duty 4 Remastered is around 40 to 50 GB. I do not remember the exact number but this is not uncommon. I believe uncompressed audio or video will be the bulk of the large number.

Well, Modern Warfare Remastered is actually a remake. This isn't, however console versions of games are generally multilingual, which can greatly increase the size. Infinite Warfare and Modern Warfare Remastered, for instance, are collectively "only" 113GB on the PC versus ~130GB on consoles as the various supported languages are divided into separate data depots and the one you download by default is determined by the language the Steam client is set to -- the other languages are opt-in downloads.
