    That's a shame, has one of the best trailers I've seen for a game. Johnny Cash + space = win.

    @IronSoldier Yeah I know the feeling. Maybe that's why nobody really gives a shit about Far cry 4. They know it's just a copy and paste job from Far Cry 3. Pretty much what they have done to Assassins Creed from AC2. Everyone has played an Ubisoft open world game a hundred times already. They are exactly the same. Reply +2

    @jcaspian Battlefield 4 has a quarter of a million players online playing it a year after launch. It's far from dead and happens to be a superb multiplayer game right now, probably the best FPS out there in my opinion. It also has one more expansion pack to come that has been confirmed (Final Stand), and probably another free expansion pack of remade maps from BF3 and possibly new weapons. It is far from dead, people will still be playing this 12 months from now. Reply +4

    @Triggerhappytel Dice are making Battlefront which is out late next year and also Mirror's Edge 2. I very much doubt Battlefield 5 will be out next year, more like late 2016 at the earliest. Reply +3
  • Star Wars Battlefront out Christmas 2015

  • Bananazniper 28/10/2014

    People wanting this Battlefront to be third person are going to be disappointed I think. For the rest of us a first person multiplayer space game from Dice set in the Star Wars universe is heaven. Dice don't do third person, they've already said it. Reply +3
  • EA execs off the hook in Battlefield 4 'you lied to inflate share price' lawsuit

    @dennett316 I don't think Hardline will sell like mad. I think most Battlefielders are waiting for Battlefield: Battlefront next year. BF4 already has a hover tank in it that serves no purpose, I'm sure it's there as a crafty test bed for the new Battlefront game. Reply 0
  • Chris Roberts unveils Star Citizen planetside gameplay

  • Bananazniper 15/10/2014

    @PearOfAnguish
    Coming onto an article and shitting on a game you don't like is up to you, or getting on your high horse and telling people what they should or should not spend their money on is also up to you. I know you're into Elite and that is a great game as I play it.

    But I just find fanboys doing down each others game is just a bit sad to be honest. Luckily, most people are just happy at the revival of the space game, and most people who play one of them also have the other and you don't see too much bitching.

  • Bananazniper 13/10/2014

    @tyuur When the game is released sometime in 2016 development won't stop there. It will carry on and Chris said he wants to still be developing the universe 10 years after release. This game will grow and grow.

    All those things you want are already planned, like owning factories, a player influenced deep economy and a huge variety of weapons and systems that you can spec your ship with. But you have to remember, this game is not just a space-sim. There will be missions on the planets like deus ex type gameplay. They are making a full on sci-fi game, not just a space sim (although that is the hub that holds the game together).

    I'm getting to be an older gamer and this game gives me that wow factor like no other game. The same feeling when I was a 12 year old kid many years ago.

    Battlefield 4 multiplayer looks better than most single player games which is amazing really considering there are 64 players running around and tons of dynamic explosions. Looking forward to see the new Dragon Age as that's also on Frostbyte 3. A heavily modded Skyrim can also look great as you say. Also, Star Citizen Arena Commander is jaw dropping, and that runs on the Crytek engine also.

  • Total War: Rome 2 re-review

  • Bananazniper 09/10/2014

    @Zaiz
    No you're not, and according to Steam stats we're not alone. Still waiting for Empire 2 set in the 1800's. Rome 2 is a great though, especially the Augustus campaign they just released (I'm playing as Marc Antony in that one).

  • As Star Citizen hits $55m, Chris Roberts insists all money goes back into development

  • Bananazniper 01/10/2014

    The ships do look amazing, thousands of times better than anything else out there. And I'm not just talking about how many polygons they have, but also the design of them. The M50 above has astonishing detail, you can walk right up to it and not see a blurry texture anywhere. The game is coming along nicely considering it's only been in full development for less than a year.

    Remember they started from scratch with only a few developers and they've expanded to new offices and grown the development team. So don't expect to see the PU until 2016, if we're lucky we might get a PU beta towards the end of next year.

    @ghostgate2001 FSX is being released on steam later in the year, and a new game based on the engine is being released next year, so you might get your wish. The company that makes Train Simulator bought it from Microsoft a few months ago and has big plans for the engine. Reply 0

    They could remake the original Ghost Recon with prettier graphics and I'd be all over it. They wouldn't have to touch a thing regarding the gameplay. Instead it seems like they remake games we were playing 18 months ago which is a bit of a shame as we have all these gems lying around from 10-15 years ago.

  • Bananazniper 07/09/2014

    The original Ghost Recon was one of the first FPS's I played, and I played it to death. Tactical planning and movement around the big maps was more important than the actual shooting. I was hooked on that game. Then Ghost Recon 2 came along and that was that, it was a totally different game in a different genre. Reply +12

  • Oculus answers the big Rift questions

  • Bananazniper 03/09/2014

    This really needs 4k resolution for the image quality to be like your 1080p monitor from 4ft away. That might not come until consumer version 3 or 4, which could be 10 years out which will at least make the computer hardware cheaper to render at that resolution. At 1080p looking at a screen an inch from your face there are little bricks all over the place. Try it now, press your eyeballs up to your monitor to see it. Reply -2

    I'm actually hoping the next TW will be in the Victorian era. Imagine the tech tree would be amazing. You would go from sailing ships at the start to dreadnoughts near the end. And it could have railways as they experimented with railways in Fall of the Samurai.

    The AI has received massive changes since launch. And about a month ago they released a AI siege overhaul that is actually very good. It's definitely a game worth buying as there is hundreds of hours of gameplay in it. I'm currently on an Egypt grand campaign and that alone I've put in 60+ hours and nowhere near finishing it.

    Yes it is. It was a disaster at launch from the bugs to the gameplay, but it's now a very good game. I still prefer Empire but that is more to do with the time setting than anything wrong with Rome 2.

  • You can't trade items with other players in Destiny

    for all of you who cannot understand that I suggest you take comprehensive grammar in your school of choice, not home school as that level of ignorance is already apparent when you post.
    This is Bungies' game either you buy into their fantasy or you don't
    I'll give you a tip, if you're going to criticise the grammar of other people I suggest you make sure yours is correct. That should read Bungie's game and not Bungies' game, unless there are multiple Bungies out there making it.

    I thought the idea of capitalism was having free markets so companies can prosper and pay taxes to make society not only a better place, but to make society work full stop. The fact these mega companies take advantage and pay virtually no tax is not the idea of a society I had. Saying it's just capitalism isn't good enough, and is wrong.

    They are not that great when they treat their workforce like cattle, and those cheap prices might have something to do with that, along with having an agreement with Luxembourg so they don't pay any tax. It's a case of the lesser of two evils, Google or Amazon? In the long run laws can be brought in to clamp down on Amazon, but Google?

    Thank fuck it wasn't Google. It's a shame they sold it, especially to a rancid company like Amazon, but Google is trying to control the internet more than any government. Behind all their cool ideas and "it's the greatest company to work for" Google is just making sure they dominate the market so they can shove the highest paying advertisements in your face, all the time.

  • Star Citizen races past $50m mark after selling new space ships

  • Bananazniper 18/08/2014

    @adscott Sit back and eat popcorn when this game never makes it out of production. Legions of butthurt morons complaining about the money they spent on theoretical ships. It will be glorious.
    Strange you should say theoretical ships, as I was flying one this morning in Arena Commander. I backed the game for 40 yesterday. That got me the full game when it releases, the 300i ship, access to Arena Commander, access to a future beta, digital manuals, digital starmap and a few other things I can't remember.

    Is that 40 gamble? I'm willing to lose 40 over three years if it doesn't go to plan, but I'm convinced we'll get a full game in 2016 so was happy to back it for 40. I would not pay $150 for a ship, but some people do and so what if that's what they want to spend their money on.

    Wow, a lot of drama queens in here who don't know what they are talking about. You do not have to buy internet spaceships if you do not want to, you get them all by just playing the game when it's released. People buy them now to fund the game and it's their choice, no one is forcing them. I think Star Citizen and Elite Dangerous both look fantastic and I hope both succeed. We waited years for a decent space sim, then two come along at once :) Reply +2

    That new shiny Constellation won't cost you a penny if you buy the game on release. All ships are available to everyone just by playing the game, is there any part of that you don't understand? All micro-transactions in the final game will be cosmetic only like paint jobs.

    The reason the ships cost money now is to fund development. You do not have to do that or buy anything, you can just wait for the game to release. Personally, I think the game looks fantastic and is coming along nicely now.

    Not only have SE and Crystal Dynamics cut off 80% of sales they've also destroyed any good will for the franchise and themselves as a company.

    I think the soldier movement will be a massive change. If I round a corner and see five enemies bearing down on me I like to run away (yeah ok). In BF4 it feels like I'm in one of those dreams were you are trying to run but are stuck in treacle and the bad guys are sprinting like Usain Bolt. Hopefully after the update I'll be able to flee for my life. Reply +1
