    "all this talk about torn frames...do you guys actually see this when playing the game or are you intentionally looking for them ingame as I've played the time trail and havent noticed it tbh"

    I doubt anyone would notice at all. Thanks DF for providing fuckwits with their regular chance to sound off about things the human eye cant even pick out.

    Good demo btw.

  • Gran Turismo 5 for summer 2010?

  • Bazfrag 14/12/2009

    "We're living in the age of internet, ever heard of updates and DLC? Get this shit out already."

    Nah screw that. Break this gens mould and become the first non cynical big budget HD release. Anyway Kaz has said he won't release an incomplete product...

    They were unlikely to release in March when every game and his Dad is out that month. That said, I will just import if the wait is too much to bare. Reply 0
  • EA boss says PS3 wand is called Gem

  • Bazfrag 10/12/2009

    Codename Gem surely? Same with Natal. Although renaming it would put an end to any anti-natal jokes.

    Edit: They should both be codenamed Project Belated Bandwagon.

    Shitpickle is not my word unfortunately :( He was a guest reviewer on James Rolfe's A.V.G.N. It suits this game though!

    "All the previews I read of this were remarkably positive as it goes. Especially the first looks from E3."

    Most previews are staged at e3 behind closed doors, and are not a genuine hands on with the game. I cannot believe anyone did go hands on with this shitpickle because the hands probably wouldn't register!

    The series died after thps3, at least for me. The skill based score attack gameplay is what I consider true videogaming to be. Not gta with skateboarding, and certainly not a half finished, uncontrollable, cynical advert fest.

  • EA makes Dead Space 2 official

  • Bazfrag 07/12/2009

    "No shooting fookin asteroids mind ;)"

    +1. I found those bits very irritating. Would also like less vents for necro's to appear from, and more varied scares. Lol i played this with surround headphones and had uncontrollable leg spasms whenever I was chased by something.

    oh and every reviewer that praised the inventory for not pausing the game should be forced to play System Shock, and then find a different career!

  • MW2 javelin patch imminent on PS3/360

  • Bazfrag 07/12/2009

    "it's absolutely impossible to ship a game of the complexity of today's AAA games 100% bug free. your comment just goes to show you zilch about game development."

    A mp beta would helped find the bigger exploits.

    "Sorry for being a little slow on the uptake! What happens they go to fire the javelin and it blows them and others up?"

    I have/will not play this but apparently most jav glitchers will try and knife you, and if you kill them they explode killing everyone in quite a large radius.

    Reading my post sober I will stop quoting as it comes across as personal. No need to single people out as a cheap way of getting a point across, especially when you explain the reasoning behind your post.

    Please dump the scores EG. For the greater good of humanity. Break the endless cycle of moaning after Game X scores higher/lower than Game Y.

    "Better than MGS4 then? It is a very cute and polished game... I rate it a 7, or 8/10. 9 is too high, and it does it disservice if people expect to get ther mind blown away. I recommend it anyway. It deserves more sales, just don't expect it to be GOTY quality."

    :/ Behold exhibit A. Not really moaning as such but still silly score nitpicking. I would imagine that CC will win GOTY on some sites. Ellie posted a thorough, well written review, and thought it was a quality product. Mgs has nothing to do with anything.
    If people must complain about reviews then how about the ones that are poorly written, riddled with inaccuracies or are paid for adverts in disguise.

    Can Consoles Run Crysis?

    No. Hence they are getting Crysis 2! Simples.

    DKtronics. Can i borrow your rig while my one is being fixed? You are wasting it imo. Also how is that 3rd Stalker game? Didn?t know it was out yet.

  • Bayonetta heads PS3 Store refresher

  • Bazfrag 05/12/2009

    Tried the demo. Seems a really good game, but my word it could do with a worthy port. Spinning the camera at the very start of the demo immediately reveals tearing and judders. You don't need DF wizardry to spot the flaws. Assasins Creed deja vu...but...

    Was still impressed by the gameplay, the combat, and the crazy ass over the topness of everything. The overall experience I had was in a strange way very slick despite the technical flaws. It's a pity it's not anywhere near as slick as it should be :(

  • No iPlayer for Xbox 360 after all?

  • Bazfrag 30/11/2009

    "my god. basically the bbc are saying microsoft want as much of your money as possible, even if it is providing THE SAME service as it rivals, who is giving that service for free."

    Basically. As is their want as a business. However, they cannot make it exclusive to gold subscribers under current law. Ms has to either back down or miss out.

    "However the BBC have no probs offering the iplayer on a premium service which virgin provide."

    Its available to ALL subscribers, not just the premiums. Thats why its allowed.

    Paying for a free service? On xbl? Well i never!! When did this happen? LIES!

    Microsoft once said "if its free on other platforms it will be free on ours" That soon changed when it became obvious hardly anyone cares or is aware that 99% of xbl features are a rip off.

  • Modern Warfare 2

  • Bazfrag 10/11/2009

    Edge writes what most other "professionals" were afraid to say regarding pc version:

    "The flexibility MW2 has the potential to display in the hands of its audience is lost for no good reason other than a desire for control. No mod tools, no custom maps and no clan-hosted servers mean there has to be serious doubt about MW2?s long-term future in a marketplace containing the moddable original as well as the likes of Team Fortress 2."

  • Insomniac: 60FPS no more

  • Bazfrag 08/11/2009

    "Forza 3 is a bullshot-free zone by reputation"

    Erm no. Che - Turn 10 community manager claimed all shots were gameplay, and the high detail models were gameplay as well. Seeing as they were photomode shots with higher poly models not used in actual gameplay, which he admitted, I ask what is a bullshot if not this?

    On topic, 30fps is fine for most games, as many have said. Racing and multiplayer fps are much better at 60.

    Im actually surprised they haven't claimed a reduced player count stops piracy. Can anyone guess which version has already leaked and is being mass pirated? Hint - rhymes with hex blox.

    @Groovy: So far I have heard that xbox has worse textures and ps3 has a chuggy framerate. However some sources contradict that : / I cannot say 1st hand what is true. I never expect a Bioware game to be technically faultless anyway.
    I believe you heard correctly about there being no overhead view on consoles. This could irritate BG purists. (360 version but I assume that covers ps3 as well)

    "Giantbomb just gave this 5 stars"

    Imo they and several other outlets lost credibility when they refused to chastise Infinity Ward over the pc p2p debacle. I understand they have to eat lol, but after Gerstmangate I hoped they would be more honest. Actually its telling that even Eg reported that p2p article without the usual opinion or jokes or fanbait... a first? Dont bite the hand that feeds you as they say.

    "Review is a perfect example of why EG should drop scores"

    Agreed. Scores are bullshit anyway. They cause endless whining over miniscule numerical values, are paid for in some cases, (read most cases if its Famitsu or ign and others) and cause endless whining...

    Its better to read the words of reviews and listen to opinions of other gamers/friends/etc. If you buy based on scores alone, you will face disappointments when average games get high marks due to publisher pressure, or you may miss out on a gem simply because the publisher couldn't afford to moneyhat reviewers.

    edit: Also reviews of anything are opinions of the individual. They might not like what another may love. *Missed that out due to joypad typing fatigue!
