    It could well be "rinse and repeat" as some say, but this game is the best movie license Iīve ever played and I cannot have enough of Batman series! Arkham Origins was a pure delight with so many strong section bosses, amazing graphics super sleek gameplay and controls. Iīm an absolute unconditional fan of Batman just like of Max Payne and Splinter Cell... Bring it on with better graphics every year and Iīm in :) Reply +1

  • Cities: Skylines review

    @Sicho

    I agree with your opinion. Still, I think Skylines has a bit more challenge than SC4. But itīs easily noticeable the lack of long term playibility.

    @Costarring

    It is still ok to me if Simcity does not depict what should be considered a simulating model. If agents fill jobs for one building and it "rejects" the excess of workers to the next needing building itīs ok to me as well... as long as all worker surplus fills available jobs in due time - avoiding any "Close needs Workers" message. This should allow some cool alternatives to the classic way of playing SC5 - meaning you could almost have a Industrial only city, providing freight to a Comercial only neighboor. These are the kind of challenges that make my SC5 rewarding.

    No, sorry, that is not true... in fact most of those 7000 are going to work in commercial buildings. I watch many 8:00 AM flocks leaving the train station painted in light blue (workers) heading and filling comercial jobs.

    We are not here to please ourselves but to share opinions. I will not make you laugh, that is for sure.

    and that is why I rather think that Simcity5 could be the "first stone" instead of "the last nail". I wish it is a prototype for a marvelous city simulator in coming years.

    In my opinion Skylines is an extension of that average model you mentioned. I would rather see this kind of game to break with that trend and head in way of a more personalized simulation, a pinpoint model, where you really need to have things right before your city starts to build up.

    @jamyskis1981

    "... lacks sense of achievement" THIS.

    Simcity 5 was broken - fact. Simcity 5 is small - fact. Simcity 5 is restrictive - fact (specially in efficient neighboorhod deals like correct accounting of water availability to all cluster). Simcity 5 is groundbreaking in its simulating engine of requests and agents - fact. And this is why Simcity 5 is much more complex than Skylines and, in my opinion, more challenging.

    I still play Simcity 5 and when cities start to build up density it feels waaaay more rewarding than in Skylines. Or when you finally manage to have 7000 people commuting in from another neighboor city (wich is actually working as a resident hub only) to fill the massive Available Jobs in a Industrial/Trade city.

    Even when Simcity5 forum was on itīs pinnacle, most players would say "Ohh I rather play Simcity 4 than Simcity 5..." I always disagreed - Simcity 4 was starting to feel shallow and blunt, a case of "just let it go".

    Skylines picks up where Simcity 4 ended, introducing a few modern elements like the organic traffic and SLIGHTLY better graphics - to some people that is a great thing.

    Oh, graphics, a thing that few are refering to, fearing to be flamed by all so-called city managers - graphics suck and are unacceptably cheap. It is very hard to just lay back and appreciate what you are building (notice that I didnīt say "planning") because it all looks jagged and crisp (even modern buildings of residence and commercial/office).

    To sum it all there is something that people tend to forget - the genre of this game, and SimCityīs, is called "city builder" right? But in fact what you want to do is "city PLANNING" or else you would be plopping buildings all across maps, right? Well, if "city building" is your thing, Skylines is your game, for now.

    If "city planning" is what you want to do I would rather stick to Simcity 5, for now.

    Deep down what we all really wanted was a bigger Simcity 5, right?

    A bullet to the head is life ending: in most cases (there are cases where a soldier gets hit by a sniper round in the back of the head, loses 40% of brain mass and comes to TV talking about marijuana benefits :P)

    anyway, I DO agree with you: back in my days a headshot was enough... not headshots!

    After 3 weeks resting from Battlefield4 (focusing on Kyrat :)) I returned to the wonderfull large scale online shooter that today it proves to be... The game still feels fresh (after 750 hours), with a lot to discover and master. Iīve been having a great time in Naval Strike and Last Stand maps.

    Unfortunately some oficial sources insist to mention "Battlefield 4 suffered a terrible launch, with a number of high-profile technical issues preventing many from playing". The hype effect is gone and that prevents many from playing as well. Too bad it doesnīt prevent the "too little too late" posts like the one below.

    Genuine BF players are today enjoying the best shooter out there. Hyped child have moved on to another blinking light...

    Iīm very happy that developers are supporting the game making improvments in the core and not just cosmetic and interacting with the comunity. Hardline will have a hardtime xD

  • DICE wants Battlefield 4 players to help build a new map

  • Agente_Silva 20/02/2015

    @mega-gazz

    Because it was the first BF to consoles I guess... When BF3 came along many didnīt like bigger map sizes - that is clearly a statment from BFBC players not knowing how BF1942 DC and BF2 rolled for years.

    Battlefield was always a more paced and strategic game than any. And that is why it has a solid fanbase who wish BF titles last more than 2 years before getting renewed. We will see that happening with BF4 guys... :)

    It surely had a rough start but that is, in my perspective, normal when you develop something truly new.

    If DICE is adressing netcode again (it could also raise the bar on tickrate) we should all rejoice :)

    @Defecationqueen

    BF3 was clearly out to bait BF and CoD players. Still, DLCīs like Back to Karkand and Armored Kill are worth mentioning for map size.

    In BF4 there are more big maps than small maps even in vanilla. If you have Premium you must admit BF4 has clearly steered away from that CoD trend and got back to what BF is really great (I should name a few maps - Paracel Storm; Golmud; Altai Range; Dragon Pass; Silk Road; Operation Mortar; Hammerhead; Karelia...).

    edit: people love to hate - still mentioning the bugged launch, even when 2 years have passed. I wonder how many CoDīs were made during BF4 existence. Itīs really amazing how casual players talk about something they do not bother to try on the long term - if gaming is turning into a shallow mass production industry is exactly because of you (not you DefQueen but "those"), and you ("those") should be shoved with crappy DLCs while your all hyped and excited...

    In my opinion PS3 version IS the rip off. If you havenīt found a reason to buy GTA5 on "next-gen" platform youīll surely be happy playing PS3 games for long time :P

    This article is clearly haunted by peasants (sorry, but the neg spamming on FMV and Ironsoldier is clearly peasant ranting) desperatly trying to find a good reason why GTA5 is okish in stone age gen consoles. By todayīs standardīs IT IS NOT OK to play GTA5 in PS3/XB360 (and thatīs why the term "peasants" exist. Peasants will eat bread for their whole life and be happy with it)... it is a fact.

    To someone who claimed "Carpe diem" Iīll say I usually enjoy everyday gaming with todayīs technology, not stone age technology and that is why I stand for the "rather wait 2 years to play it in itīs full glory".

    If it was for peasants expectations we would still be stuck with Pentium processors... dream higher or stfu.

  • Battlefield Hardline is more than just a palette swap

  • Agente_Silva 04/02/2015

    @parkboyer

    It seems players expectations over a game (in this case BF4) have dramatically decreased. When you mention weeks/months of gameplay lost in unlock achievements, in my point of view, is not an issue but a natural reaction to the "bling" in these "next-gen" titles. Being an old school BF player (since 1942 DC modded) I find some assigments or weapon unlocks ok even if it means to "step away" from team play (or PTFO) from time to time, but Iīm not doing it on the long term because matches become too frustrating (like capīing a flag and, as you walk away itīs blinking and everyone is just mental to the next pew pew moment - it is then when you realize your team is not acting like one).

    So, long story short, I think it is ok to spend a few weeks unlocking stuff but after that you get back to teamplay since Battlefield is about years of play not months.

    edit: Hardline is definetley a waste and calling it Battlefield is almost offensive :P mentioning CoD when the discussion is about Battlefield is pointless considering theyīre not slightly comparable (pick Titanfall for that). CoD unlocks are straighforward and short because CoD itself is developed to be like that - chew and spit.

    If you stood for Battlefield4 for the last year you know there has been a great effort to give fans (old school and new comers) a great experience in both perspectives (close quarters and openfield; infantry and veihcles warfare). From every DLC you notice a map/flag layout improvment and even a graphic improvement (vanilla maps-BF2/BF3 maps; Naval Strike, etc...). Just look at Hangar 21 or Giants of Karelia and you imediattly realize how big maps were taken into BF4 (just like BF2).

    The only "if" (wich could be really damaging to competitive gameplay) is the tickrate thing were it is proven to be a bit under acceptable yet (tradekills and "behind corner" kills still happen).

    Still, Battlefield4 is one of itīs kind with no comparison to anything out there...

    ... and for that I donīt see any reason to go for cops/robbers!

    It really is a mod... a blunt one! Cut down in size and vehicles. It is more of a large CoD than Battlefield. There is nothing in Hardline that takes me away from the REAL Battlefield (everything you need is in BF4, from Metro to Kharelia or Hammerhead, from Gulf of Oman to Operation Mortar).

    @xmdfmk7x

    Halleluia brother... As a BF veteran (since 1942, modded as Desert Combat - wich propelled the BF2 developing) I make your words mine as well.

    BF3 was a let down for most PC players because of the crumpling flag placing despite some maps allowed for a wider gameplay (thinking of Operation Firestorm, Caspian Border, Damavand Peak).

    BF4 was the return to true Battlefield gameplay and this Final Stand expansion is a great proof of that :)

    @pjbliverpool

    I wonder how many developers will release games at 4K though... We all know where the money is and 4K gaming might die on the road.

    Consoles are lighyears away from anything similar to 4K so donīt hold you cards for too long.

    Since I started using Eyfinity (5760*1080) I realized not many games are 3 screen ready (relying on the wonders done by Hayden with his Flawless Widescreen software).

    With Farcry 4 we experienced the lack of Crossfire/SLI profile and game stuttering like hell (with no solution on the horizon) - all things considered, sadly, I donīt see a happy future for high end gaming rigs.

    More of the same on new graphic engine has always worked for me, specially on games that nail it on first release. You donīt see anyone complaining about GTA series :)

    Shadow of Mordor seems a bit more "copy/paste" when it comes to environment setting, only changing the colour palette - I finished Mordor and loved the game, donīt get me wrong. Batman seems more close and faithfull to comic books, with more elements to the environment and care for detail.

    The easter eggs in this game (from vanilla to this last DLC) are clearly representative of what kind of game and community turned product Battlefield is...

    Why DICE would bother introducing secret locations or dinossaur audio or funny things like the PvZ pea shooter in Dawnbraker or the Phantom programs.
