    The Division X Enchantment.......


    .....looks the same to me :-|
    I'm afraid I can't watch it properly, as my phone only lets me select up to 1080p, meaning I can't see it in 4K. It makes sense really, not letting me select a resolution higher than my screen, but it does mean I can't judge the biggest, most noticeable part of the enchantment fairly. Also I don't have a 4K TV so it's rather moot for me anyway :p

    To be fair, it's the same with 95% of the content on both the Pro and X. Places like Digital foundry "oversell" the additions in a lot of cases because you have split-screen, zoom and slow-mo comparisons to really highlight any minor discrepancies.

    When you're sat home with no comparison, sat 6 feet from your screen and immersed in what you're actually playing rather than scouring the screen for jaggies, we're all mostly playing the same thing.

    That's not to say the Pro/X aren't better; of course they are. But it's not something that really sticks out moment-to-moment in most cases, other than you know you're playing the best versions.

    And that goes the same for Pro vs. X. The reasons to pick your platforms are still more informed by user preference (controller, UI) and friends lists, etc, than getting 5% more grunt in a multiplat. title, because you simply can't see that benefit when you're only playing one version.

    sure, if you are blind the upgrade from 1080p to 4k is pretty tough to see.

    Exactly!

    Edit: The point is that The Division's "so called" X enhancements made no difference but 95% of the X enhancements on games are very noticeable.

    This is the least important “upgrade”, imo, but sure It’s noticeable.
    Doesn’t change my point.

    I wouldn’t buy into the base models at this point (though the S definitely has value as a general multimedia device if you’re not so bothered about the gaming side).

    How many games are anything other than one mechanical loop if you really try hard enough to describe them as such?

    Pretty much why I dont like football. it is the same every time. Two teams of 11, kicking the ball from one side to the other side, with unrealistic physics which can be seen by minor or non existent collisions resulting in crying players.

    @Breach I still haven’t tried the X enchantment.

    Fair play to ubisoft though, a couple years ago and I didnt play any of their games really. But with R6 Siege, The Division, and Wildlands, I would solidly put them as a favourite now, and happily pre order future stuff knowing I would get a strong starter package, and if it is a bit weak in terms of longevity, it will probably still get a lot of support!

    Won't lie, The Division 2 footage from E3 has me really excited for it. Looks broadly similar but enemies are less bullet spongy, they ditched the weird supers for super-weapons instead, like a 50 cal sniper rifle and a grenade launcher(!), and skill trees that only unlock once you reach max level.

    Seems like they took a lot of the criticisms to heart, addressing the endgame especially. Will be interested to see what they mean when they say they've introduced 'raids' (the ones in the first game were glorified horde modes) but so far it's got me very excited, by being similar but improving on the weaknesses of the first.

    Yeah I'm in, spent way too long on the first and likely will do this too.
  • Deleted user 15 June 2018 10:35:38
    There's also 3 free DLC packs in the first year (no idea what this means, but I'm not complaining with free and their post-release support has become exemplary) and no battle royale mode. Good.

    To be fair survival was a bit like battle royale and that was great.

    Good point, completely forgot about that. Only played it a couple of times but really enjoyed it too, plus it seemed to come along before PUBG really hit. Might be misremembering.

    Can't wait. Loved the first one. Easily one of my favourite games this gen. Co op drop in and out worked great.

    I think i've already said this, but i think Monster Hunter World has taught me to appreciate the grind/farm a bit more, and i'll get much more out of this one than i did the last (though i loved the 25hrs i spent in the story mode of that).

    Hoping they can work out some way of stopping the cronusmax users on the sequel, they are a nightmare on the current one.

    I'm betting they are a hybrid appreciation group of Cronenberg & Max headroom.

    It's a device you plug into your pad which removes recoil from the guns and does loads of other cheating shit like making shotguns and pistols fire full auto. Also allows use of health kits whilst ads and other such bollocks.
