Top 5 Best & Worst Game Announcements of E3 2017

Here on TheLateGamer.com, we want to ensure that gamers are protected from the drummed up hype of the publishers and get the real facts on the games being announced this week. We here are no fanboys/girls, and take no stand (or bribes) with any of the publishers, forming our own opinions on what will be good and bad amongst the evidence of release trailers provided. The games chosen are based on a combination of release trailers and of my experience of any previous titles in the series. We hope that you can appreciate that we also had to cut through a lot of cringe this year.

A Love/Hate Relationship with GTX 970 SLI

I was none other than seriously p*ssed whilst playing Far Cry 4 a few years back on my newly purchased GTX 970, an upgrade from my year old GTX 770, only for the game to micro stutter. The micro-stuttering was all down to the fact that Nvidia had cheaped out, instead of installing 4GB of DDR5 VRAM, had only used 3.5GB of DDR5 and topped it off with 0.5GB of DDR3 memory, memory that was pulling the rest of the VRAM down. An absolute joke of a card, which I recommend that you purchase one today!

Kids To Censor Themselves?

I’m an advocate for enforcing censoring and ensuring that young people aren’t exposed to materials that are deemed unsuitable for them, usually so they don’t grow up with some mental disorder. With video games, there is a big difference between a game for 7-year-olds with bright colours and whimsical characters, and an 18+ game that encourages to butcher people up and uses the acts of committing crimes as an objective.

PC vs Consoles: Part 2

We all know that PCs are more powerful than consoles but the key word here is optimisation. Optimisation is the process of checking and altering a game to ensure it runs on a certain platform as expected. This costs the developers and publishers a good chunk of their budget by having to run test after test ensuring each stage of the developed game works on different hardware, and its easier to optimise for two consoles, the Xbox One and the PS4 than rather a million combinations of components. If games were only ever created and optimised for consoles, it would quite frankly save developers time and money, hopefully invested back into making the game even better.

PC or Console: Which is best for gaming?

Having played consoles all my life, I made the transition from the Xbox 360 to becoming a serious PC gamer over 3 years ago, having spent about £1700 in total on the original pc and on upgrades since. Over those 3 years, I can confidently say at my own expense, amongst all the butt hurt this may get from the PC community, that I have not once received a return on investment and it’s only been a world of problems.
