Battlefield 4 PS4 Game
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Much better looking on PS4 than PS3, but 03/11/2014

This review is from: Battlefield 4 PS4 Game

Pros: I have it on PS3 and got it on PS4 for the measly 10 buck upgrade. It is far more crisp and smooth playing on the PS4. It also crashes far less than it does on ps3, and when it does crash it doesn't lockup your system, just gives a crash report and option to submit it. However, that is due to the PS4, not the game.

Cons: Still crashes, but I have had other PS4 games crash too. Such is the way of software.

My real beef with it is that they changed the trigger buttons. I am use to having my fire button as R1 from playing on the PS3, however on PS4 it is R2 and you cant change it for the life of you. It's probably the PS4's fault with how they designed the R2/L2 buttons to feel like triggers, but DICE really could and should have had the option to change the fire button back to R1 for those who are use to playing like that. -1 egg for that!

They also have this thing where assignments, weapons, and game modes you cant even download the DLC for yet are select-able in-game and on the game mode select screen. Really wish they wouldn't do that :/ teases are not cool.

Other Thoughts: Overall, happy with it. Tho the DLC tease is bad, I am happy to see that the battlefield 2125 carrier assault is coming back. I really missed that and cant wait til it becomes available, even tho it isnt set in the future with floating ships and shield systems. BF4 has more weapon choices than 2125 anyways, so meh.

5 out of 5 eggs Awesome Sause 03/11/2014

This review is from: PlayStation 4 Console

Pros: Really great system. I like how they have the main screen setup as opposed to the PS3. And they have ways to skip all the game selections and get right to the multiplayer like with Killzone Shadowfall. Can select the multiplayer mode right from the PS4 XMB before even launching the game. It also downloads and uploads about 3 times faster (wired) than the PS3 can.

The PS4 really showcases the power of the games too. Battlefield 4 looks WAY better on ps4 than ps3. Even tho I dont have the PC version, I'd say it looks like the just like it, just with no other graphical options of course. not like you'd need anything other than ultra with the PS4.

Cons: Not too many games available for it, not many that I would want to play anyways, mostly ps3 to PS4 crossovers, that were mostly shooters. I'm sure the sports fans are pleased enough with their madden and whatnot tho heh.

Most of the really good stuff is coming out later in the year, or next year even.

MSI R9 290X LIGHTNING 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card - Retail
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Idles around 40C and hasn't gotten over 71C while gaming, all while not making any noise at all. I can only hear my current case fans, not these fans. Framerates in all my games have increased over my old Crossfire 6970's.

Cons: But this card is HUGE. it's much bigger than my 6970's were. I had to move the video card support bracket down because it was covering the GPU power inputs, and it wouldnt with it right there anyways. If It wasn't movable I would have been in trouble :( but Its all good. Would have had to move everything into a different backup case if I couldnt.

Also, for some reason the MSI Lightning fanspeed control app doesnt work for me. It shows the 2 outside fans as 0% and nothing for the middle fan, and I cant set manual fanspeed profiles in MSI Afterburner. But, at least the fan tachometer shows in MSI afterburner so I can see that it is automatically adjusting according to the heat and not just staying a static 50% like my old cards would if I didnt have MSI afterburner to adjust their speeds based on temp.

No other cons as of yet.

Other Thoughts: My older 6970's, which only had 1 fan and were pretty much refrence cards, would reach 80C+ while gaming under full load, and thats with 100% fan speed and extremely noisy. Really glad This card was availiable at the time I decided to upgrade.
