  • Samsung pulls YouTube video of GTA5's exploding Note 7 phone mod

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 20/10/2016

    Unwise step. Magazines already wrote about this video, people watched it and nobody cared anymore.
    By removing it, they just ensure that everyone will be reporting about this mod again and refresh the memories, Samsung is trying to burry. Totally contraproductive move.
    In my language we have wise saying that goes like "The more you poke itto the sh*t, the more it smells." This apples here. Sometimes it is just better to leave it alone and dont bring more attention.

  • What works and what doesn't in PlayStation VR's launch line-up

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 12/10/2016

    "Sorry, but no. The success of the Wii was nothing to do with Nintendo's brand recognition."

    Do you really believe, that if console with same specs and same kind of games was released by some unknown starting china company, that it would become most successfull console on the market beating MS and Sony? If tt was not released by Nintendo HC gamers would be laughting and casual gamers would never even heard about it.

    "do you really want to spend hours with a headset on? I don't"
    "VR is a fun distraction and something i'll put of for a couple of hours at a time."

    So is it for hours of a time, or not?
    Anyway - no I dont was to use it for hours with headset on (same as you). Another reason why this is not for me :-D

    "I actually think it really shows the true power of gameplay when a game so basic as Wii Sports is shorthand for a killer app"

    No. Unfortunatelly it shows the true power of brand name (Nintendo in this case). And lack of any good game competition. Honestly it was not a Wii sports that pushed the sales of Wiil. But it was Wii (the new Console from big n that people wanted) that pushed a sales of a only somehow playable game at the time (+ it was bundled in most case so sale was guaranteed).
    I believe that if you had motion controlled games like Skyrim, GTA, Arkham Games, Bloodborne or any other big AAA game, people would not even start Wii Sports. But there was nothing like that availble. So you had to play glitchy virtual golf to somehow justify the purchase.

    So far Im not sold on this. The game lineup does not seem interesting. More like a collection of tech demos.
    And from what I read in reviews, the technology is far from perfect, creating lots of distracting situations (excluded in all trailers of course)

    My biggest issues are:
    1) Bad sensitivity of the move controllers resulting in shaking objects. So even if you do not move, the objects are moving. In some cases this can be pretty distracting. Try imagine reading this:,fl_progressive,q_80,w_800/ddh3zbohvun0n23rzsvv.gif

    2) The play area is small (smaller that with other systems like Vive). So it is easier for game to loose tracking of your body. And you can forget about being able to bent to the floor for something. Basically instead of this:,fl_progressive,q_80,w_800/wnyi5asvhgimlkcssedl.gif
    you get this:,fl_progressive,q_80,w_800/z9tdaj4o1vpaapi1n5mu.gif

    Im not sure about opinions of the others. But the thought that I spent all these money on the VR system, camera, move controllers, games and then I experience this is just scaring me.

    Hmmm. So I still did not finished Xcom 2 and I really want to. Tomb Raider was released today. And Im really looking forward for Dragon Quest bilders. Difficult times :-D (Im kind of glad for the review score of Mafia 3 in some weird way :-D) Reply 0

  • Watch: Is Mafia 3 any good? Here's the first three hours of the campaign

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 07/10/2016

    Based on the early info from people who got their copies little earlier, the first hours are great cinematic experience. But the game get repetitive soon afterwards (ubisoft style). So I would not make the decision based on first ours. Reply +11
  • Mafia 3 is locked at 30fps on PC, much to Steam users' chagrin

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 07/10/2016

    Just a small warning about early user reviews. Read them carefully and read between lines what kind of players is posting this. (and dont check just the total user score)
    Basically the first Mafia was developed by Czech Republic. And it was basicalyl best game developed there that gain worldwide appreciation. For this reason it become something like cult for many of the local fans and players.
    But then... during development of the Mafia the main screenwriter left (and he was loved for the script of first Mafia), the studio was bought by the 2k ("omg they will make it a gta now") and you can probably imagine the response. And this hate is still there.
    You are luck if you dont understand the czech forum regarding this game. It is basically total dump (basically same level as the No Mans Sky forum - but from players who did not played the game yet. They just know they hate everything. From the graphics, to the way the main character walks :-D).
    So Im pretty sure that once the user reviews will be unlocked, these fans will go to spread their wisdom and righteousness there.

    Im not saying the game is good (I did not play it yet) and you should ignore the negative reviews. But just try to check if the review is written by somebody who played it. And if he is rating the game itself. Not just how different is it from Mafia 1 on scale (every difference is automatically bad). Because there will be huge amount of these biased user reviews :-(

  • Skyrim and Fallout 4 will receive mod support on PS4

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 06/10/2016

    Considering you can change the game files directly on the consoles, than there is no need to dicussion if bundling it into main file is still external content.
    I believe the situation is pretty clear. The consoles are closed enviromnent and it has its advantages and disadvantages. The advantage is that all ocntent is going via some certification process giving you at least some way of quality assurance (for example Kerbal in Europe was delayed because of bugs. And until they fix it, they can not charge you money for that).
    The disadvantage of the same process is that you can not publish anything you want.

    The whole reason behind this modding limitation is for sure about adult content (they dont want a nude mods) and most probably licencing issues. (they dont want to have to solve that game on their system is using copyrighted material).
    The easies was to enforce this is to allow you to use only the content created by Bethesda and crtified by the Sony. So you will be able to tweak gameplay mechanics, create new dugeons from existing assets... but you will not be able to insert pokemon enemies, naked textures, penis swords, etc.

    Will the PS4 Pro version really offer just 4k resolution? So no update for players on full HD? Some option to run in full HD, but with better draw distance, more detailed lighting effects, etc would be more welcome. Reply 0
  • Agarwel_Idiriz 06/10/2016

    Well, no surprise there. I believe it was obvious from the beggining that Sony has no problems with mods. But there are troubles with user content on their closed platform. I guess they want to ensure there wont be no adult content (lets be hoenst, nude mod would be one of the first ones published). And then there are probably issues with copyrighted material (you knwo mods that replace dragons with My Little Ponnies, etc)
    I believe tehy came with reasonable compromise.

  • Beyond Good & Evil 2 is almost definitely in development

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 06/10/2016

    Now lets be honest. After more than 13 years from the original, it will be compeltelly different gampelay experience (created by different people under different management and different conditions) anyway. So no reason to get excited just because they reuse the name. Not until they show some gameplay that will look fun. Reply -1
  • No Man's Sky subreddit shut down, community erupts

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 05/10/2016

    Good decision. I understand why some people were dissapointed. But what is happening about this game is just ridiculous joke.
    In all honesty, the false advertisement is something affecting whole gaming industry. Taking anger on one developers is really not helping anybody. And it is just hypocritical.
    For example... recently Bioshock Infinite Remaster was released. Where is the same hate that even after all these years and remastering it does not look anything like this:
    (especially last minutes of the video show completelly different game)

    If someone want to have or fight this approach of the developers, they should do it properly. Not to beat one dead horse.

  • There's a Skyrim concert coming to London, but...

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 04/10/2016

    Well. Lets just not judge it black and white. Bethesda paid for the music. They own it. And making the concert is their full right. Asking the composer might be nice gesture but as tehy own the music, they really dont have to, and there is absolutelly nothing wrong about not asking if you can paly the music you own.
    On the other hand, it is good to know this is not played from the original sheets. So you are not getting the original Skyrim music, but just something similar. So teh concert is probably for a Skyrim / game fans. Not for Jeremy Soul fans.

    But PS4 Pro is not needed yet for a owner (not killer title with so better graphics announed. Normal players wont buy this to replay old games with several additional pixels)

    Man this autumn will kill my wallet again. Just playing Xcom 2. This ween Mafia 3. In the middle of next week Tomb Raider. And at the end of that week Dragon Quest. And I did not even to manage start Darkest Dungeon properly. Plus Im afraid I wont resist remastered Skyrim at the end of the month.

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 03/10/2016

    I believe there is big difference between being told "how to play" and having goals are different things. You can ahve a game with goals and it still may not tell you how to play and give you freedom.
    and honestly such games are one of the best. Basically example game that tells you how to play it for Example Heavy rain. That is a game with no freedom. But when you have a games like Infinifactory and hopefully Dragon Quest Builders you are given goal in sandbox enviroment. And it is up to you how you want to play it. It seems that in DQB you will be able to completelly ignore objectives for a long periods of time and still have a fun.

    There is difference between telling you how to play. And by giving you direction so you have a sense of purpose.

    Yeah, the demo was very nice gesture. Released long time in advance, so you can decide. And provided hours of gameplay so you could get nice feel of the game. Wished more games did this.

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 03/10/2016

    I tried the recent demo and soe far I liked it. For me it hits the balance between freedom and directed goals. I was never able to enjoy the Minecraft. I got bored easily after bulding few structures, then I lost the purpose. In this game it should combine both.
    Now it just depends on how deep the mechanics will be in the full game (length of the story, number of items that can be constructed, etc)

    Personally I never understood why Minecraft did not included something like this. Considering the money they made, it should not be a problem for them.

    So far Im planning to buy this. This is how I imagine sandbox games should be made. Give me freedom to build what I want. But dont forget to include also some game a quests.

  • Darkest Dungeon: The Crimson Court DLC announced

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 04/10/2016

    But isnt that true about Xcom? You can play the game and the differene between winning flawlessy and getting your squad completelly wiped can be jsut in few dice rolls.
    If you are lucky, you can play really bad - but as long as you hit and enemies miss, you will be fine. Or you can be brilliant, but if you miss and the enemi hits, your soldier panic and "Alien Hunetr DLC Boss" chooses your core characters, you have no chance.

    Of course some players strategy is needed. But no matter what you do, dice rolls can decide the results more than your strategy.

    Personally I prefer games without random dice rolls. Unfortunatelly they are rare :-(

  • Bulletstorm remaster dated for 2017, published by Borderlands studio Gearbox

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 29/09/2016

    Its great. Unique weapons that feels great, polished gameplay that gives you huge control over battlefield, skill kill system that is real fun a actually even good (for fps) story.
    I really recomend this game. It is one of these that is not trying to be realistic or anything, but just focuses on being pure fun. In my opinion one of the best FPS I played.

  • Advertising Standards launches investigation into No Man's Sky

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 29/09/2016

    On one hand I understand the hate. On the other hand I really find it unfair to the No Mans Sky, that only this marketing is getting so much coverage.
    Shouldnt it be covered for other games as well? I mean where were these kind of articles when Bioshock Infinite was released? When Watch Dogs was released?
    I mean what is happening in gaming industry is wrong. But it is also wrong to cool our anger on only one game just because everybody is doing it now. Almost every AAA game is doing the same. We should not threat No Mans Sky as something different or worse than other games.

    Do you remember this game for example?
    Do you remember how you played this game?
    And in smaller degree basically every bigger game?

    The first was was working on the cosole pretty well. So I dont expect any troubles with this ones (maybe just few bug caused by porting, that will be patched?)

    But Im looking for this. This time I will be smarter and I know I should start Easy+IronMan. I mean I dont want it super challenge the first time. But Ironman is a must. Better easy ironman than madium/hard with reloads.

  • Hitman's US episode dated and detailed

    So far I liked the episodes. But this one looks like the weakest one. If it will really without civilians (everybody is enemy), it just feels too much different from basic hItman formulla.
    For me one of the best levels are these, where you can hide in plain sight as a civilian (Italy,...)

    For me it was also surprise. Never heard of this game before. But today something new popped out on the PS store. I just checked screenshots. Seemd unique, so I checked trailers. Lookked like Firewatch. I googled, found out some thrilled previews and early impressions. So I bought it.
    Now Im waiting to get back home to play it. According reviews I did not make mistake with my purchase. So far the overall feedback is pretty impressive.

    But lets be compeltelly honest - most of the promissed features would not make the game better anyway. So if you did not enjoy the game as it is, having features like extremelly rare online, possibility to fly to other solar system, landing on planets or ability to walk via portal would not make the game deeper and more fun anyway.

  • PS4's big new update (the one with folders) goes live

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 13/09/2016

    No. Its just basically a way to copy all the content of one PS4 to another PS4. Main purpose is to help with upgrades to PS4 Pro. So if you upgrade to the latest model you dont have to download the games aagain, transfer saves, perform all the config, set up folders, etc. You just transfer image of old PS4 to the new one and you are set up.

    It is a pitty. But I have to say I dont like the sneeky wording "Sony had blocked mods for the role-playing games the way they should work."
    I will bet anything that Sony did not used phrase "the way they should work" when rejecting the mods and probably did not asked bethesda to do it somehow how it should not work. They probably rejected some specific aspects of the mods. And for some reason Bethesda does not want to share these reasons and rather used this meaningless phrase. Big question is Why? Maybe the requirements from Sony are not so crazy or restricting as they want us to believe?
    As far as I understand this, Sony has no objection to mods. But Bethesda is not willing to talk about any required compromise? (most probably about some control over released mods so mods with sexual content or ones that breaks the game are removed)
