  • Bungie: We're trying to build Destiny content quicker

  • Ajent 22/06/2016

    @number1024 no apology necessary... You've clearly adapted, I'm not disputing that. I'm simply suggesting that a demand of matchmaking is stubborn.

    I maintain that an in game LFG system would side step everyone's issues... It gives those who want matchmaking, an in game option to form groups with randoms and for those who use an external LFG option already, it just makes things easier.

    @number1024 dude, I'm not saying YOU don't have the time. I saw your earlier post. I was supporting what mega-gazz was saying and that I thought your serial killer reference was a bit aggressive and missed his point.

    The problem with matchmaking Being optional as you suggest is that at the end of the day Bungie (and definetley Activision) are a business. The best promotion for business is positive word of mouth. At the moment no one is saying that the raids are bad, jumbled messes, full of uncoordinated, rage filled, rage quitting, afk'ing idiots that make the whole thing nigh unplayable. Most people are saying that the raids are actually a ton of fun. There are those that are unable to comment because they haven't been bothered to find people to play with, but that isn't a negative. It's just a lack of opinion.

    Going back to the 'is this game for you' analogy. If you want to play football for your local amateur football team who play on Wednesdays, do you:
    a) just turn up unannounced in your kit and get 'matchmade' or
    b) approach people at the club, speak to them, ask if and how you can play with them and then arrange a game?

    Destiny is my team game and I approach it with all the typical social mechanics that accompany most other team games because that's what this type of game demands. Not because that's the way Bungie want it, but because that's how team games work better. Go play in your matchmade football team against the organised group of friends and see how you fare.

    Adapt to the game and you'll enjoy it. That's the point.

    Of course. An in game LFG would still give you a semblance of what you want and would (theoretically) be very simple to implement, whilst still maintaining all those social mechanics that I just described.

    @number1024 Nope. Disagree. Match-making would be bad.

    The suggestion I have always maintained would be an ideal in between is an in game LFG board in the tower. Similar to 'shouting' in a typical MMO chat.

    There's so, so much that can go wrong with matchmaking that an in game LFG would allow a team leader to vet teammates.

    I also kind of agree with mega-gazz about how you have to ask yourself if the game is for you, or maybe adapt to the requirements to play the game. Your analogy of a serial killer was a bit weird. I think he basically meant you should make time and commit to a play session if you really want to play. A bit like playing for a local sports team. If they play on Wednesday's you can't expect them to change to a Friday just because you're busy on Wednesday.

  • Are 4K visuals really the best use for Project Scorpio and PlayStation Neo?

  • Ajent 18/06/2016

    @Master09 I definetley agree that it's marketing jargon from MS, but all Sony have confirmed is that it's a 'high-end PS4'. Sony have actually announced little else and the leaked details only suggest a 1080p minimum. It doesn't really say much about 4K gaming, just 4K video. Reply +7
  • Ajent 18/06/2016

    @Yourekiddingyourself I dunno. I don't think a 1080p/60fps request is unreasonable. A lot of PS4 games on the current hardware run at 1080p/30fps, so a single request for an fps bump doesn't seem unreasonable given the comparative power increase. Reply +16

  • Three new consoles will dominate E3 - even if they're not there

  • Ajent 12/06/2016

    @akmass I completely agree. I think all the comparisons to PC gaming on here are pointless.

    LONG POST (but I want my two cents worth).

    Certainly your average punter is not going to start considering a PC build when they have no idea what a RAM module is. However, put a PS4 and a PS4K in front of them and their given a pretty clear choice. Both are the same, do the same thing, but one can push 4K media and runs games at a slightly higher res/fps.

    To the average game enthusiast (such as myself), my current gaming set up would not accommodate a PC build. I have my own room with a TV, AV setup and my games consoles. I like the simplicity of games consoles for the reasons you've highlighted. Not because I don't like the idea of spending 400. I'm an enthusiast, so spending 300-400 every two years seems worth while on a cost-time value ratio. In my games room the two seat sofa is positioned directly in front of the TV with a proportionate layout for my surround sound speakers. The room isn't very big. To use a PC I would either have to re-do the entire room and build a desk unit or find some way to rest a keyboard and mouse on my lap or with a foldaway/rolling desk that I could use (because, in my experience, whilst you can use a controller for a lot of functions there are just some things you need a kb/mouse for). The change would just be way too imp active on the way I have designed my gaming experience to be comfortable and simple.

    PC might be *better overall, but to simply switch to PC is not a simple process.

    As for those saying that Sony are 'complicating' the issue of console gaming - How easy has your life been that when present with TWO choices you find if complicated???

  • Destiny's Rise of Iron officially unveiled, new location detailed

  • Ajent 10/06/2016

    @The_KFD_Case Excuse? At what point did I make an excuse? I've nothing to excuse. I assume you mean to ask me what my response would be based on my opinion.

    As for your 'facts'; you seem to be confused between the difference of 'fact' and 'opinion'. However, I'll humour you.

    Your first 'fact', I disagree with. Most of the MMO/ Raid type games I've played have in game LFG options (mostly facilitated by use of a local/global chat system). I've never experienced a match made raid type activity. It's pointless comparing a 5-10 minute match made CoD match to a multiple hour excursion into a raid. Sure, the raids are not 'unattainable' feats. I don't think any 'fanboi' would ever say they are. Quite the opposite. A 'fanboi' might even suggest that they are so bored at completing Kings Fall in 40 mins that they would love a new raid. That's hardly 'fanboi-stirring hubris'.

    Your other two 'facts' agree with mostly. An in game LFG would be better (see my last comment - honestly, I could accuse you of trying to steal my point!). I don't think the current work around is more tedious though. It's incredibly simple. In fact, some my prefer it. I can patrol Venus in game whilst searching for a group on DLFG on my phone or tablet. An in game LFG might not offer such multi tasking options. As for it not offering a higher chance of matching play styles; YES, it does. You put it right there in the request whether you're LFG or LFM. Eg. "#LFM, must have mic, sword bearer needed, must be LL32". It's not a sure guarantee, but it is a better chance at finding someone who matches those stipulations than random matchmaking as you suggest.

    Your last 'fact' I completely agree with (and is actually closest to being an actual fact). But, as I've pointed out, I don't think that's why Bungie don't include it. They don't include it because they want you to enjoy the raid. Not get frustrated because you spend 2hrs looking for a sixth member because people keep quitting/ you keep failing because someone is lame/ constantly having to sherpa.

    In its current state, those who have played it love it and that positive word of mouth is worth more than a 'good will guest ire' to include match making which has a high possibility of back firing when a potentially high number of matchmaker players start complaining about how the game is 'broken'.

    Ultimately, we disagree. I think the only thing we agree on is an in game LFG would alleviate the majority of these issues. But matchmaking is a big no-no.

  • Ajent 10/06/2016

    @AkumaG Actually, I'm going to hold my hands up. I mistook your comment for that of another user who was saying there should be matchmaking because him and his friends haven't been able to play because of the lack of it (which is false, as you've pointed out there are ways around it- the truth is they just can't be arsed).

    I still disagree with you. I think there is a very real negative possibility that a large majority of people won't communicate, even if they have a mic, will drop out resulting in wait time whilst recruiting another and other such issues that will make it too frustrating for people to view in a good way.

    Sure these can and do happen with LFG groups, I just believe (and The Division has proven to me) that automated matchmaking increases the occurence of these annoying acts.

    However, rather than matchmaking, I think an LFG notice board in the social areas would be a fantastic idea. It wouldn't be automated, it would still require a degree of work (going to the tower, going to the board, looking for a group, sending a join request) that would indicate the player was serious, and it would also allow a 'vetting' of those people as you all 'partied up' in the social space.

    Matchmaking = No. In game LFG substitute = YES !

    @AkumaG I'm sorry, but your very wrong. Your telling someone who is experienced that they are incorrect, but then making your own suggestions when you yourself say that you have little experience ?!?!

    Have you played The Division? Ubisoft added matchmaking to their Incursion modes and end game content as an almost direct response to this sort of criticism. If you have played The Division end game, how many times have you had people quit on you thereby making the whole spent playing up to that point redundant?

    Matchmaking doesn't work for this level of end game content. Communication and team work is absolutely essential. Otherwise you come away with a very poor impression of the activity and that is what Bungie are avoiding (the raids are mostly positively received- they're brilliant). Positive word of mouth is the best free advertising ever. They won't tarnish it with crappy match made experiences.

  • We don't know why Sony's making PS4K, but there are plenty of reasons it shouldn't

  • Ajent 10/06/2016

    When I saw the article title on the front page I was very confused. I thought "why would Eurogamer, a website that depends on the revolution of games consoles in order to continue thriving, be upset about the evolution of video games consoles". It just didn't make sense to me.

    And then I thought 'Jeez, I wonder if I'm in the minority about being excited about a locked 1080p 60fps PS4?'

    So I came to the comments expecting to see lots of people also venting about how they are also frustrated with this 'mid-cycle upgrade'.

    How pleasantly surprised I was to see that the majority of people here agree that this makes both financial sense, consumer sense (options) and is a healthy progression of the console model.

    Edit: woah, mood changed. So many negs...

  • Capcom bans pro fighting game player due to sexual harassment

  • Ajent 03/06/2016

    @richardiox Haha. No, I don't regularly pinch my mates arses. I didn't say that.

    It's strange that you find it homo erotic though. First of all, for it to be 'homo' erotic you'd have to assume my friend was the same sex. Secondly, for it to be erotic it would have to sexually arouse either of the two parties involved. The sort of 'banter' I described would DEFINETLEY be weird if it was erotic, but then that's not what I described.

    I'm also confused by the contradiction in both of your paragraphs. Is 'rugby banter' weird outside of public school rugby teams or is it normalised stereotypical behaviour for friends who play in sports teams? And why is it restricted to sports teams? I've seen army lads acting in the same way, stag parties, hen parties, and other large groups of friends acting the same way on nights out. I've seen people slap friends on the bum as a form of jovial encouragement.

    All I'm saying is that no one here is aware of the full facts. The two people involved have both said it was them having fun and messing about (and that's certainly how the video looks - in fact the other guy to the left in the video also pinches her knee and she pushes him as they stand up, immediately before she gets punched on the bum - definitely looks like they are privy to some kind of private joke that none of us are aware of). The only people who have coined the act as 'sexual harassment' is Capcom.

    @JoelStinty We'll have to agree to disagree I think. In my experience, friends are generally very close and there is invariably some form of touching or physical contact. I find it hard to believe that you play rugby and have never been grabbed in a jovial manner by a team mate whilst larking around (I've played for numerous teams around the world and 'rugby banter' is a very universal experience!).

    You're right. You don't know what people's reactions are going to be. If they're random. But I can do it with my friends because they're my friends and I know what they find funny/acceptable. It seems he did as well, judging by her comments and his (again, not confusing her comments for those of Capcom). She has said it was nothing serious. They were joking and having fun.

  • Ajent 03/06/2016

    @JoelStinty I don't think she said she was uncomfortable. Quite the opposite from what I read. I don't think she said it was unwanted either. Capcom said that. In a very legal friendly non-committal vague way.

    She said it was unexpected.

    As for 'You don't go round grabbing people's arses hoping that they will be OK with it'- be careful not to imply what you find acceptable and morally correct onto others. For instance; You've clearly never been on a rugby team. Arses grabbed is a regular occurrence.

    @Fourfoldroot Your getting a lot of grief for posting a fair point. How anyone on here thinks they know enough about this to form a valid opinion is baffling. The whole thing is straight up confusing. Yeah, the guy seems like a douche. It doesn't mean he did anything wrong on this occasion.

    There's a heck of a lot of people on here that also have no idea what a 'sexual assault' is and what 'sexual harassment' is either. It certainly doesn't look like sexual assault, and his defence corroborates that. It might be sexual harassment, but then the girl would have to agree that she was harassed (it not being consensual is completely different).

    @Murton I'm in agreement with you. I think a lot of it has to do with Internet hate train as well. It's the same with CoD. They're actually good games, but because of the annual release, monetisation, blatant business side of it all, people feel a need to rebel against 'the man'/greed/worst company ever or whatever other label they give it.

    For me, I always enjoyed the modern day stuff. Again, I also wished they'd continued with the Desmond story. If anything, the modern day stuff did become more disjointed after that.

    @vert1go are you seriously saying that the Wii U is NOT a console with a load of games that might as well have "Another" before the title?

  • Nintendo details E3 plans, no sign of usual event

  • Ajent 05/05/2016

    @northlondon01 The problem with comparing the NX to the Neo, and the public awareness of the two devices, is that the Neo is very catered towards your high end user. The sort of person who will visit game websites and be well aware of all the info. The NX is Nintendo's new main console. They don't have a base/ standard version of the console that already has 40million devices in people's homes. They need this to be their flagship, and for that they need to tell people about it. In simple terms, they need to advertise the thing they want to sell (and they only have 9 months left to do it apparently!!)

    I'm not disappointed that Nintendo aren't going to do E3 because it means I don't get to see something that I want; I'm disappointed because it makes no commercial sense. You said that 'saying nothing isn't a problem', but it is. If Nintedno don't say something, don't tell ANYONE about the NX then not only do we, the gaming obsessed fanboys, not know about it- how can Nintendo expect the wider casual user base to be aware of it. If people don't know about it they aren't going to buy it. If Nintendo miss out on E3 they're missing out on the largest gaming news event of the year.

    I can understand the whole 'we want to announce on our own schedule', in a perfect world.

    But unfortunately this just smacks of stereotypical Nintendo arrogance.

    The rest of the world does not pay attention to Nintendos schedule. The rest of the world will have some awareness of E3 (mainstream news networks typical have some coverage), but are unlikely to report on a randomly announced Nintendo YouTube video. Showing something at E3 - even if it was JUST Zelda, but actually on the NX- means wider coverage, more consumer awareness, which will eventually turn in more pre-orders/ purchases.

    This is Nintendo catering to their faithful again. If they're not careful then this will translate into 2.8million NX's being sold (or whatever the current figure is).

    I'm really really excited to see what Nintendo have planned. The potential is almost tangible. But their current behaviour is a major concern.

    Which would be stupid. When was the last time you saw a mainstream news outlet report of a Nintendo Direct video? And yet they all mention E3 in some way.

    To get mainstream awareness they need to attend E3. Otherwise it'll be another console that only the fans/ core gamers are aware of.

  • The Gears of War 4 season pass costs 40

  • Ajent 26/04/2016

    @cloudskipa I find it very disheartening that you have been down voted so much on this comment (the one where you break down the cost per map). I actually like DLC. I like it for the reasons you've pointed out; if I enjoy the game then surely more of the same is a good thing? Also, value is completely and totally subjective. I bet all those people down voting you spend large amounts of money on other things that I would never consider buying.

    Ultimately, I think you're being downvoted on that comment simply because your reputation as a fanboy has preceded the actual point you're trying to make, which in itself is very fair.

    I don't agree with everything you say, but on this occasion you've made a valid point which was fairly explained.

  • Ajent 07/03/2016

    @Apostate you really need to chill. Your point would have more relevance of it wasn't solely based on you're individual opinion. The FACT is that Destiny was a pretty big thing to happen to gaming recently. It has done both commercially and critically pretty well. Sure it has its haters, but it has retained a player base that is pretty huge.

    I think any kind of criticism of EG's use of the comparison is actually, ironically, ignorant.

    @dogmanstaruk I'm with you on this one. Generally, I don't have a problem with DLC (so long as it is a genuinely non-essential supplementative product and the base game is full in its own right - which is definitely the case here). This is basically Nintendo saying "Hey, we beefed up this game you all love. It's got some extra bells and whistles and if you don't mind dropping a few extra quid on an Amiibo we've even built a new dungeon for those willing to reimburse us for the time and effort. Thanks".

    @Bauul That's fair enough. I suppose they could even go all the way to 499 as well, given the cost of some 'new' consoles through history. Is that Kaz Hirai Twitter a genuine account? His reaction (if it is) would indicate that Sony are coming in significantly lower.

    Personally, I'm not that surprised by these prices. I always thought that this was going to be a niche thing that they would have to grow.
    Reply 0
  • Ajent 06/01/2016

    @Bauul If the 'new console' that Sony are comparing the cost to is a PS4 (which, given that it's Sony, is likely), then that means that PSVR could cost as little (!) as 250. Even if they are suggesting a NEW 'new' console, that's just been released, it still makes sense that they're comparing the cost to PS4, so 349. Either way, a saving of 100-250 is quite a bit and in my wallet does constitute 'loads'. Reply +4

  • Ajent 11/12/2015

    @Murton hmmmmm... I'm not sure what you're referring to anymore. I'm certain the games in the sale have always been those prices (they may have been in previous sales though).

    So I'm pretty certain the sale isn't illegal, hardly dishonest and it isn't even anti-consumer (PSN store is actually very pro-consumer in a number of ways). It's simply a product being sold at a price that you don't like and you feel you can find it at a better value price else where.

    As for the fact that different retail outlets selling similar products at different prices being newsworthy? I disagree there also. It's pretty obvious and I'm sure most people already know about it.

    I totally respect your right to comment on your disapproval of PSN prices, I'm just saying that there's little validation in trying to suggest EG have some kind of agenda in the situation.

    Edit: - On topic ! Screw Prison of Elders. That was the most blatant form of grinding. Just give us another raid. I love the raids. Even Crota's End.

    @Murton EG silently condones a company selling something for a price that the company sees fit to sell it at? Isn't that just commerce? Reply +3

    What I find really (really, really) bizarre and hypocritical is the fact that these articles seem to be stipulating that Arab people HAVE to be darker skinned?!?!?

    How many Arab's actually have darker skin? I've lived in the Middle East for half my life. I'd estimate about half the Arab people I've met have a skin tone slightly darker (resembling a more 'mediteraenean' tone) than my skin (I'm white British).

    Those people screaming 'white-washing', I'd argue are only highlighting their own ignorance. Pretty moronic really.

    @SteadyBarker As @bestius explains below; You can't really condemn harassment by being harassing. I get your point, but you've undermined your argument with your conduct. Reply +1
