Geek Links of the Week

We’ve already talked about current-gen Battlefield 4. Now, how do the next-gen versions BF4 stack up. Only slightly shockingly, EA’s “special relationship” with Xbox has resulted in the XB1 version having better textures than the PS4. I’m not saying accusing anyone of anything but if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck… [Digital Foundry]

And what about Battlefield’s PC fans? Well, I found a comparison of how various graphics cards handle BF4. Makes me wonder if I should upgrade to the R9 290X if I can find a good deal. [The Guru of 3D]

Was Beyond: Two Souls really a linear train ride throughout the whole game? One man sorted through the evidence to find that there were choices in the game but they may not have been obvious to everyone. [Player’s Delight]

Have you ever wondered where all the game console pictures on Wikipedia came from? Chances are they came from this one man. [Peta Pixel]

Star Wars: 1313 will never be made thanks to Disney killing LucasArts. Now we can lament what could have been with these pieces of concept art from the game. [Kotaku]
