  • Raymond: Splinter Cell popularity held back by its complexity

  • Anthony_UK 23/04/2013

    The reason the sales on Spinner Cell decreased is the same as with Dead Space. There watering the game down to the point where ain't it becomes another 3rd person shooter with a cover mechanic.

    In there attempt to somehow make there games appeal to the COD mob, there making every game feel the same.

  • Ellie Gibson returns to Eurogamer, Oli Welsh becomes Deputy Editor

  • Anthony_UK 10/07/2012

    When one of Ellie's negatives in the Alan Wake review and presumably a part reason why she marked the game down was that Alan Wake's wife took women in gaming back years...... For being scared of the dark? Scared of demons? Who knows? I'm not surprised there were more than a few scathing comments. Reply -16

    Free tip.... When you develop game for 3 years, releasing a confusing co-op/multiplayer demo in a buggy, laggy almost unplayable state won't make people want to part with there cash. Reply +7
  • Gotham City Impostors fixes on the way

  • Anthony_UK 17/02/2012

    Unrealistic demands? I've unlocked half the weapons in the game after 4 hours?

    The only things in the game that have the 'buy now' option are clothing options/costumes for your in game avatar which don't effect gameplay and are unlocked through normal play anyway.

    And the first batch of DLC is free next month that includes a map with new weapons and abilities and dedicated servers.

    First FPS I've really got into in a long time. Ignore the lazy review and at least give it a try.

  • New Warhammer 40K: Space Marine DLC announced

  • Anthony_UK 18/01/2012

    Loved the single player and the multiplayer is so much better than I imagined. I'm slightly tempted to pick up this DLC purely to play something different but I'm worried that the I imagine to be a small player base well get split even more.

    You'd think developers of games like this would release the DLC for free to attract players back!

  • Stunning Spec Ops: The Line teaser trailer

  • Anthony_UK 22/11/2011

    They had a beta for this earlier this year which I played with the half a dozen others who bothered :/ it really was functional at best. By the numbers slightly sluggish 3rd person action, with very basic graphics and a cover system that felt more mass effect than gears of war...

    Basically it looked nothing like the awesome looking gameplay trailers doing the rounds at the time, so hopefully it was either a very early version of the game or they've gone back to the drawing board.

  • New Homefront DLC announced

  • Anthony_UK 19/07/2011

    I'll be buying but it's a shame they'll be splitting the small community even more. The way it simply boots players who don't have the DLC as maps rotate is also a pain



    The game has it's issues, the servers for example still have issues sometimes when joining games with friends, though for all it's faults I absolutely love it, it's just a great multiplayer shooter.



    Give the multiplayer demo a go if you haven't already! And if you have the game try it anyway, noob slaying is fun!

    I half agree with the post above

    Starbreeze are masters at setting the atmosphere and putting you in the shoes of who your supposed to be. The actual game mechanics of both Riddick and The Darkness were clunky to say the least.

  • Homefront multiplayer demo coming

  • Anthony_UK 04/05/2011

    They really did nail the multiplayer, such a shame they scared the COD faithful that dip there toe in away with the lack of being able to join friends and just games in general for those first few weeks...

    Shame as other than BC2, this is probably my favourite online shooter this generation. Hits the sweet spot right on the head between all the vehicle based action and strategy of battlefield with the pace of COD.

    Seeing as Fronlines has new weapons and vehicles as well as maps for it's DLC I've got my fingers crossed for something similar here :)

  • XBL chart: COD rules, Homefront falters

  • Anthony_UK 21/04/2011

    That's a major tail off on Homefront after the amount of copies they apparently sold, there was around 500,000 names on the xbox leaderboard the week after release. I'm still loving it, but aiming for the COD masses, then have constant cashes and not allowing people to play with friends was suicide really...

    Everyone bar myself on my friends list has traded this in purely because of the state of the servers those first few weeks...shame :/

  • Mafia II: Director's Cut sighted

  • Anthony_UK 23/03/2011

    The likes of John Teti and Ellie are some of the main reasons Eurogamer reviews mean little to me these days.



    Pretentious overlong intro, followed by missing the point entirely, forgetting why the average Joe plays video games in the first place. Go work for Edge or something.....



    Anyhow it was pretty clear no matter how good the released game was, that it was butchered for the sake of creating some DLC. In an ideal world the directors cut would be as the finished game should of been. Now that would have me buy it a second time around!

  • Cliffy B: "The middle class game is dead"

  • Anthony_UK 04/03/2011

    He's got it wrong though, it's not all about being AAA. It's quality, it also has to be quick to pick up and have the longevity. But I think sadly marketing is a massive part of things now also.

    Pretty much all of my friends own an xbox. But only a handful at most have even heard of the likes of Vanquish. A game which makes Gears look very ordinary in comparison.

    What happened to giving demo disks at retail, again on xbox it's surprising out my 'casual gamer' friends how they never even venture anywhere near the demo section of the marketplace

  • Eden working to eliminate TDU2 bugs

  • Anthony_UK 14/02/2011

    @Harmonica

    You either sound like you work for Eden or are a member of the TDU2 Defence Force, seriously i'm enjoying the game at the moment despite the current situation, but claiming the game is anything but broken at the moment is just wishful thinking.

    Servers are hit and miss to whether there online, and other players currently so laugh it's not even fun, multiplayer games still keep booting you mid race, game saves being deleted and clubs and other various elements of the multiplayer are either broken or in the process apparently of being fixed.

    Love the ambition of Eden with this game, but it's still a mess at the minute

  • EA: Acti has made "horrific mistakes"

  • Anthony_UK 22/12/2010

    He's jumping on the bandwagon but Acti deserve it!

    Look at EA and there output over the past few years. Mirror's Edge, Dead Space, Bad Company 1 and 2 and the latest Need For Speed. How they turned the tide on Pro Evo with FIFA... Sure there still big evil EA but they seem to using there might to actually create games that we gamers love....and if they fail they come back stronger. The amount of time they've given DICE with BF3 is another example of how there taking there time to create great games rather than rush it out of the door and sell something off the brand name alone.

    Acti? Where have they done any of the above... They've rode in on the back of Modern Warfare, Tony Hawk and Guitar Hero and have done nothing and will do nothing to progress either in any meaning full way and will simply bleed each particular series dry....Who's idea was it to reboot Tony Hawk with a plastic skateboard? Do they even ask gamers what we want?

    How long before the masses realise that COD is basically the same year after year within reason...what will Activision do then?

    Bizarre Creations also? Who buys one of best Dev's of the past 10 years or so and do what they did with them.... Blur? Awesome game but was poorly marketed with a too clever for it's own good ad campaign.....and to top it off, wasn't even on the shelves of either Game or Gamestation on release day! (Rumour being Game refused because Acti wouldn't take back unsold Guitar Hero stock) either way baring on mind Red Dead had just been released the combination of events basically meant Bizarre were fed to the wolves as they were with James Bond... Released with no marketing alongside bloody Call of Duty!!!!

    Clueless springs to mind!

    .....and relax....

  • Introducing: Eurogamer Asks

  • Anthony_UK 26/11/2010

    Serious question..



    Seeing the amount of money games cost to make, why do publishers hype a game for launch then pretty much leave it at that. Mario games on wii constantly sell because of brand awareness and the fact there always advertised, why don't over publishers on other platforms do the same, especially when a game doesnt sell as well as it should.



    Blur for example, bombed but was a brilliant and at the same time causal friendly, but very few people I shown the game to had even heard of it, the ones that did play it bought it. It was advertised at time in a perhaps a to clever ad for it's own good, as it wouldn't have meant anything to anyone who didn't already know about the game. A second wave of advertising aimed a little better could have really worked but instead the game is left to die and the publishers shift there attention elsewhere.
