  • PlayStation Plus May games include Tropico 5 and Table Top Racing

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 28/04/2016

    Well if you set up even the +23 positive comments as a low score, then yes.

    It is a great game. And T5 is probably best in the series. If you see any negative rating it is usually because Tropico 3 and Tropico 4 were basically same game (just new missions) and Tropico 5 added only few new ideas.
    But if you havent played previous titles, then this is not a issue for you and you will get one of the best city building strategies.

  • Apple iPhone sales fall for the first time ever

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 27/04/2016

    Hmmm. Nice. But why nobody sells the phone I want anymore?
    Small so it fits the pocket (no - the current compact and mini versions are not small), hw qwerty keyboard for comfortable typing, gps just in case, long battery life and thats basically all I need.
    I still have a Xperia Mini Pro, I really want to make myself happy with some new cool phone. But anytime I go to some shop and see the "compact" phones that are three times as big as mine, with almost 1 day battery life and touch keyboards I just walk away :-(
    Im really afraid of the day my phone dies, because I feel I will just have to get one with more power (that I really dont need at all), but worse in every other aspect

    Please give me better version of this:
    not this:
    (yes the smaller one is called mini :-( ) It seems like they know some users wants a small phone, yet they reject the idea of creating one :-D

  • Apple iPhone SE review

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 25/04/2016

    It was always like this. But when the high-performance phones were new, we did not case about boring gameplay. We were like "omg, I can have a 3d game on my phone. Wooow. Look at the graphics. It looks almost like PS3 games downscaled 300p resolution. That is so cool."
    But after few years we just dont have a reason to play them anymore.

  • Dark Souls board game raises $71k Kickstarter goal in three minutes

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 21/04/2016

    I know From is not craeting the game. But they have to be involved (to provide licence). And the goal was "just" 50k.
    I simply dont belive From is in such financial troubles, they could not finance this (at least loan the money and get them back from sales).

    This is really the type of Kickstarter, that should not exists.

    Lets says Disney want to create some Star Wars products (toys,...) and some thirt party company is doing that. Do you see a Kickstarters for such merchendise? Or is it normal that such successfull IPs dont need it?

    Kickstarter? Really? I mean From Software was not able to finance this? (They can not sell this without approve to use the name). Im mean what is next? Kickstarter for next Call of Duty game? Reply -14
  • Dark Souls 3's multiplayer is a very different, absolutely brilliant take on online

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 20/04/2016

    It is just a pitty, that such area was not a little bit out of the main path. So far I enjoyed whole game. But this area was just making me crazy.
    They should added some better mechanism to pair people interested in PvP for such areas. Becuase I did not enjoy that. And Im sure that most of the invaders did not enjoyed the encounters with me (because before I just started suiciding to get rid of them fastly I also had a moment when i decided to annoy them too by not fighting and wasting as much of their time as possible too. Once I manged to hide that the guy was nto able to find me. So I just went to do other stuff and let him run there for like 25 minutes. To my surprise he did not leaved. I know it is a d**k move. But at that time I was so annoyed that I jsut decided to waste exactly same amount of his time as he was willing to waste of mine. :-D)

    My biggest complain for online is that you can get invaded over and over again.
    Im just bellow Anor Londo and it feels like dedicated PvP area to the extend it is actually annyoing. Unless you want to play it hollow, there is no way to not get invaded. And as soon as you kill one, another will spawn. And there is no way to get to the second bonfire with two "dogs" and invader at your back.
    If you summon help, there is even more invaders. If you get summoned to help somebody, there is already huge PvP battle. This is nice from time to time. But for people not interested in PvP, there should be some limits that would lets us enjoy PvE at least for a moment in such areas (like if you get invaded 20 times in last 10 minutes, we will lower the chance of you getting invaded, so you can actually play the game)
    So far this was most annonying area for me. To extend that after a while, when invader spawned I suicided by jumping from stairs so I can respawn, pick the souls and try my luck again. Because ofter two hours, fighting waves of invaders felt like waste of time. Not sure, if this is how the game is supposed to be played in that area?

  • Why fans are excited about this leaked Red Dead Redemption 2 map

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 19/04/2016

    "You don't hear about games from Rockstar like Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas 2."
    No you dont. But you hear about Grand Theft Auto 4. Yet there were two full games between that and GTA 3. And nobody complains that it sholud be called GTA6 because Vice City was 4th and San Andreas 5th :-D
    And to totally amaze you - new Doom will have no digit at all. Whaaaat?!? It should be Doom 4 damnit!!! :-D

    You know... these numbers often dont mean a thing. And are not related to how many game were already released in the series.

    Read Dead Revolver and Read Dead Redemption had different setting and story. If the new game is related to the Redemption (story and location wise), they can call it whatever they want. Even Red Dead Redemption 2. Everybody will know what is ment by that (I hope you too?)

  • The new Doom is having a tough time with Steam user reviews

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 18/04/2016

    Well that is spot on. And sometimes it really amazes me, that when so many players rate the game, the most important factor is not a gameplay itself. No no no. It is what you write on the box. Call it a Doom, everybody goes bananas. Call it diffferently, same players will be happy. Make a Kickstarter about game that brigs back old Quake 3 gameplay with little bit of modern stuff like leveling and loudouds and same people would throw money at the developers :-D

    I mean I know people who spend hundreds of hours playing Counter Strike (so mindless shooting is totally fine and enough for them). But then they go and totally complain about Fallout 3 because it is too simple with no options and does not meet their high gaming standarts :-D
    People just measure the games by very different rules, that usually dont make any sense. Call it Fallout, everyone will talk about runing the series. Call it anything else and people will be happy. Strange :-D

    "Common complaints include the weapons not feeling punchy enough, movement speed not feeling fast enough, and an objection to the inclusion of things like loadouts and progression. I've seen Doom's rocket launcher picked apart, too. It doesn't do enough damage, players say."

    So technicly non of these is actually negative? :-D
    I mean this paragraph should be framed and put into dictionary next to the term: "1st country problems" :-D

  • Dark Souls 3 review

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 15/04/2016

    My issue with this soluction is that many PC games and ports have different user interface (modifie to be usable on monitors and with mouse).
    There are usually different font sizes (because they expect you to be closer) that may be too small on a TV.

    I tried to play several games like this... and with some of them I had to cut resolution to ugly 720p just to bareally see the texts. So sometimes it is better to just start console versions, that wasdesigned for the TV.

    In my opinion it is still pity, that many PC developer ignore this setup. I really want to see HUD suitable for TV and setting that will allow me to play on secondary screen and still have a e-mail windows open on my primary.... This worked with Dont Starve. But I believe this is only game that thought about TV players.

    From my point of view, Souls games are not diffiult. They are not difficult at all (I died in Stories: Path of Destinies more often than in DS3)

    But - they are very different and with almost no tutorial and explanations about many ingame rules. So when you start the game and try to play it as you are used too (like Witcher, Skyrim, or any other action RPG) you will die and you will die a lot. But not because of the difficulty, but because you are simply playing it wrong! When you reaach the first boss, you may think it is impossible to beat him. And yet it is so easy if you dodge, cover and attack properly in right moments.

    So all you need is to learn to play the game (you may check some spoiler free hints on the internet or just explore the game yourself and experiment with it). Ensure you undertand how online works, how combat system works and how every consumable and key item works. When you learn this, you will not die more often that in other games.

    The difficulty in Souls games is not somehow "out of the roof" high. But the game is challenging and fair. And requires you to play carefully, patiently and using all moves and most of the items (running to the enemi and spamming attack button = instant death).

    Every time you will think "this is too difficult and totally unfair with attacks I can not avoid", try to remember there are people who finished hat part of the game with lvl1 character, with no armor and using only fists (yes, there are so crazy playesr). So if you are having trouble beating it with your lvl 70 character with upgraded and enchated weapon and new set of armor, it is probably not a games fault :-D

    But when you learn the game, all other action games start too feel too simple abd boring :-(

    This will be always some compromise. We dont have unlimited HW power. And developer usually try to use as much as they can. So they can just say "hey we have this graphics, lets make double the framerate". When you double the framerate, you cut to half the time you have to render the picture. So you need to lower resolution or lover the details.

    Personally I dont have a issue with 30fps. 60 fps is noticably better. But if I dont have them next to each other and game is running 30fps it is really not distracting me in any way. So I will gladly take bigger draw distance, more particle effect or better physic over 60fps. (and to be honest, in many game I would prefer 720p because I believe they could add som much more objects and effect that it would look better than falt surfaces with ugly unsharp textures and popping objects in 1080p.

    @-TheDarkSide- :
    "Under 30 sheets? For something that looks so good?"
    Seems we are getting some reasonable pricing lately. have you checked Stories Path of Destinies? The game is great for less than 10 bucks. I was actually afraid to purchase it due to low price :-D

    On one hand you are right. On the other the Souls games are build around multiplayer. So complains about some parts of the game (difficulty for example) when palyed offline are similar like complaining about story in games like Quake 3 :-D

    "lol, imagine if Dark Souls had a extra Nightmare mode, or a 'I Don't Want to Die' mode."

    But it is actually there already.
    1) The "extra Nightmare" is naked offline run with unleveled deprived character
    2) 'I Don't Want to Die' is just accomplished by summoning other players and let them finish the level for you. I mean you can easily beat most of the bosses without directly touching them this way.

    It looks great and all. I actually preordered it. But where to get time for this?
    Just started DS3... And other great games are getting close (Invisible inc, Uncharted 4, Doom, Sherlock, Hitman Ep 2, Mirrors Edge, Kings Quest ep 3, No mans Sky, Valkiria Remaster,... maybe Witcher DLC...and I still need to finish more of the recent Path of Destinies) - I mean next 2 months are will be crazy for players :-/ This is better then most of the Xmas holiday release lists.
    Im afraid Ratchet will be sitting on my HDD for some time until I will be able to start it :-(
