  • Watch Dogs 2 gets a free three-hour demo

  • Big-Boss 17/01/2017

    See, this is a nice idea but they're only doing it because the game flopped hard in sales. It's the same reason Activision offered a trial of Infinite Warfare and when was the last time they did that for a CoD game? With Ghosts, which also flopped. It would be nice if these companies offered trials of their games as standard rather than waiting for their games to fail first. Reply +9
  • Writing Lara Croft

  • Big-Boss 17/01/2017

    I really enjoyed the original TR reboot even though it descended into a mindless murderthon after the 50% point. I just could not get along with RoTTR though. Played around three hours and gave up on it. The story is woeful and poorly narrated and I could not care less about any of the characters. The voice acting was never anything special in the first game but even that felt like a step down in the sequel.

    The gameplay too didn't see that much of an improvement for me. I mean, we still couldn't blind fire unless we reduced the difficulty level - why? Making the game harder meant Lara became stupid? This was a terrible decision and especially noticeable during more tighter firefights where aiming wasn't always the best option. Eventually I ended up selling the game after a couple of weeks and I doubt I'll ever go back to it.

    I hope the third title goes back to its roots a bit and CD actually hire some decent writers and actors. Creating it's own identity rather than just trying to copy the far superior Uncharted games might also help the franchise as well.

  • Nintendo: Switch launch day "not be-all and end-all"

  • Big-Boss 16/01/2017

    I wouldn't pay too much attention to pre-orders selling out. The Wii U supposedly sold out on pre-orders before launch as well and we all know how well that sold. Nintendo like to drip feed stock to create artificial demand. It won't save them though. The console is destined to become one of the lowest selling ever. Reply +2
  • Switch clicks in the hands, but on paper, it's in trouble

  • Big-Boss 16/01/2017

    Zero interest in Nintendo's consoles anymore. Bring your games to systems that are relevant and I'll buy them day one. The Switch is dead on arrival and will sell even less than the Wii U. Only three launch titles in 2017 is an insult and the fact that one of them (Zelda, with Mario Kart 8 to follow) is a port is down right embarrassing. Ports and remasters should be a bonus - not the sole reason to purchase a new console.

    Don't even get me started on those wallet-raping prices. You've got to be severely brain damaged thinking you can get away with charging more than your established and more affordable competition for no reason other than greed. Oh, and please stop making excuses for them by blaming Brexit. Have Sony or MS hiked their hardware and software prices up since Brexit? In fact, has any company in any sector done that? The answer is no.

    Nintendo deserve every bit of criticism they have received over the past few days. It's just a shame that the press, as always, are giving them a free pass. Thankfully the majority of gamers are more savvy and have rightfully called Nintendo out on their bullshit decisions.

  • Sources: Microsoft and Platinum part ways on Scalebound, development ceased

    An already barren 2017 for MS is made even more grim looking then. They surely can't just be relying on the launch of new hardware to save face? I'm sure they'll reveal yet another Forza at E3 but there's no way they'll suddenly announce a truck load of other games to release in the Christmas window. Reply +8

    Hmm interesting. Like Uncharted 3 before it, it suddenly seems cool to hate on Uncharted 4. I'm pretty sure it was critically the highest rated game of 2016. It also sold a bucket load. Clearly not that bad then and a worthy winner in a list that was ultimately completely subjective. Reply +1
  • Super Mario Runs past Pokémon GO's download record

  • Big-Boss 17/12/2016

    This comment won't be popular, but I hope the success of this game shows that plenty of people want to play Nintendo's games but don't really want to play them on their hardware anymore. I am one of them. I still enjoy Nintendo's software but their hardware no longer interests me. If the Switch fails as badly as the Wii U it won't be long before they go third party. I hope it's sooner rather than later. Reply -9
  • PS4 shoots through 50m sold barrier

  • Big-Boss 07/12/2016

    Of course, Microsoft doesn't report Xbox One sales figures. It prefers to talk about Xbox Live users and engagement.
    At the very least both Nintendo and Sony reported their shipped figures, even when they were behind MS. Using meaningless "user engagement" figures because those numbers are bigger doesn't paint them in a very positive light and tells absolutely nothing. I'm sure if Sony reported their use engagement figures they would easilly be higher than MS.

    Anyway, congrats to Sony. Now give some of your studios a kick up the arse and get them to release games on time because the only exclusives I've bought this year are UC4, R&C and The Last Guardian. The latter was a long time coming and GT Sport should have been out by now as well.

    Let's face it - was there ever any doubt? This is Fumito Ueda we're talking about here, a man who created two of the greatest games of all time. His trilogy is finally complete. I simply cannot wait for my collector's edition to turn up on Friday. That wo-wo cat statue, as my nephew adorably calls it, will forever command a place on my gaming shelf. Reply +5

  • PlayStation 4 Pro unboxed - and what's next for Digital Foundry

  • Big-Boss 04/11/2016

    If the PS4 Pro was marketed as a 1080p60fps console I'd be all over it like a rash. But no, it's targeting 4k, a very niche market at the moment and one the Pro won't really help grow in my opinion. The Pro should have been a machine aimed at running the majority, if not all games at 60fps. The 4k stuff should have been saved for the PS5. Reply +2
  • What Skyrim had that Fallout 4 lost

  • Big-Boss 27/10/2016

    I love Skyrim. It got back me back into RPGs at a time I was becoming increasingly disinterested in them. I can't comment on Fallout 4 as I haven't played it (and refuse to support unfinished work for a second time), but if Skyrim releases without any of the technical issues that plagued it the first time round I cannot wait to lose myself in its world again.

    I remember playing the original release after university one evening and played it for 12 hours straight from 6pm to 6am. I've never done that with any game. Ever. My only wish for this remaster was that it came with a 1080p/60fps option as I'm not too bothered about all the supposes extra graphics effects they've added. Frame rate was the weakest part of the game in the original release and it would be a dream to play it at a locked, buttery smooth 60fps. Hopefully they release a patch at a future date that allows us play it this way.

    In the mean time I'm happy to wait as the price is a bit too high for a remaster with just one game included. The Uncharted remasters and Halo MCC had multiple games for £30 and £40 respectively. Skyrim on its own for around £35 is the same price as it launched five years ago so that's a little shitty from Bethesda IMO.

  • Nintendo Switch - games list, specs, release and everything we know about the new hardware

  • Big-Boss 22/10/2016

    It's sad seeing Nintendo today. The last console I truly loved from them and played for hours and hours was the N64. The GameCube was okay but every console since minus the first DS has been a disappointment. I sold my Wii U last year after playing around six games on it in two years. I HATED the tablet controller and support in general for it was shocking. Nintendo can't afford another disaster like it and sadly I feel that's exactly what will happen with the Switch.

    I never want to see Nintendo leave the gaming business because I have a soft spot for them, but going third party and releasing their games on other systems ala Sega would be welcomed with open arms. Their quirky console ideas just do not work. They got extremely lucky with the Wii and will never replicate that kind of success again. Anyone who thinks the Switch will do any better in a world dominated by mobile and tablet gaming is fooling themselves. Good luck to Nintendo though. They need it more than ever now.

    Whilst I agree that Sony are far more committed towards new, exciting and diverse exclusive games the examples you chose were poor. Uncharted has as many games as Gears of War (five each), Ratchet & Clank has more games in its stable than Halo and Bloodborne is a sub-franchise, albeit an excellent one, of the existing Demons and Dark Souls games.

    Better examples would have been Horizon: Zero Dawn, The Last Guardian, Days Gone, Dreams, Detroit: Become Human, Spider-Man, Death Stranding etc.

  • Big-Boss 26/06/2016

    Power isn't everything. Just ask the N64, Xbox and PS3. All three were the most powerful of their gen and all three lost out to the weakest console. Reason? Games, price and features. The Scorpio could be an absolute powerhouse, but if it doesn't successfully combine those three aforementioned qualities it won't sell too well. History has taught us this and I can see it repeating itself if the same mistakes are made. Reply +14

    Perhap's he'll eventually bugger off and just direct films and leave games for game makers rather than frustrated wannabe directors.
    All of his games, not movies - games - have scored 90+ on Metacritic and sold millions. The only game to score less than 90 was Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker - it scored 89. I, and millions of others clocked hundreds of hours playing his last game, The Phantom Pain thanks to its outstanding open world playground. You must've missed that one due to your blind loyalty to Nintendo.

  • Microsoft's mixed messages at E3 aren't pretty for Xbox One owners

  • Big-Boss 16/06/2016

    @frazzl

    This is what I posted on 30/4/2016

    All in all I don't see the point of the Neo. It feels like an unnecessary mid gen refresh when the PS4 is finally hitting it's stride with some outstanding exclusives. Sony risk alienating their player base and perhaps even derailing sales altogether by splitting the market with the Neo. Time will tell if I'm correct, but I certainly won't be picking one up that's for sure.
    So no, I am not "a-okay" with the Neo. I have been consistent with this opinion. You're welcome to find evidence of me saying otherwise but I'll save you the time by telling you that you won't.

    Just to add to that:

    It's so predictable that you said absolutely nothing to counter my statement but instead tried to turn it - as you always do - into an MS vs. Sony "war." Everyone here knows how big of an MS fanboy you are. You're worse than cloudskipa who is at least transparent with his idiocy. You on the other hand are incredibly unpleasant, rude and outright nasty to every single member who doesn't follow you in your misguided MS worship. The hundreds of negs on practically every rage-filled post you make are evidence of that.

    Going back to the Xbox - the simple fact is that regardless of what MS say to try to convince their playerbase, they have a history of leaving existing owners behind. They have never liked being in last place and this is just history repeating itself. The only difference now is that all their games are on PC which gives me and millions of others zero reason to invest in their ecosystem.

  • Big-Boss 16/06/2016

    Superb article which perfectly sums up my feelings towards the current strategy at Xbox. The Scorpio won't be cheap and since all Xbox games will now be on PC, it's better to just build a mid level PC for a little more and get access to thousands and thousands of additional games from years gone by.

    And MS aren't kidding anyone - this is a next-gen console launching early just like the 360. They have history here - whenever they're "losing" they leave existing owners behind to try and get a headstart on the competition. This is exactly what happened with the original Xbox and it's what will happen with the Scorpio.

    People love to hate CoD but this looked fantastic to me. Far better than the glimpses of the Battlefield campaign which let's face it, we know is going to be shit. Dice just can't do single player like they do MP

    Speaking of MP, I thoroughly enjoyed BO3 so if this builds on that I'll be quite happy. At the very least it looks like the single player is fun and exciting again so will probably pick it up just for that if they get it right.

  • PlayStation E3 conference report: No Neo, no mic drop, but games to spare

  • Big-Boss 14/06/2016

    Great conference, a huge improvement over MS' which was yet again littered with safe sequels and had to rely on a console revision 18 months away to save face. What was it that Larry Hryb said about the PS4 reveal?

    "Announce a console without actually showing a console? That's one approach."

    At least Sony had the full specs of the console, final controller design and some exclusive games to show. What did Scorpio have? Next to nothing other than self-generated hype. What a massive, hypocritical bellend Hryb is.

    Anyway, Horizon: Zero Dawn was game of the show for me and Days Gone looks like a spiritual, open-world sequel to The Last of Us. Detroit: Become Human also looked great and it's nice to see Sony still being committed to niche games like The Last Guardian. I read a post from an idiot, whose name I'll avoid mentioning, comparing its delay to Duke Nukem Forever in another article - clearly a moron who has no idea what he's talking about. Ueda has always delivered on his games and this looks no different.

    I'm a huge Kojima fan too so whilst Death Stranding didn't give much away I'm sure it'll be the usual combo of bat-shit weird story with fantastic gameplay. And it has to be said, but it's hilarious how no one gives a fuck that we have a fully nude man in this game. If that was a woman I'm sure EG and the rest of Internet would have written 400 million articles by now about how degrading it is towards women. What, so men don't have equal rights now? Surely this is degrading towards men right? Right?? :rolleyes:

    Back on topic the only question mark for me was over the God of War reboot. Whilst I'm happy they're innovating with the gameplay this was a chance to fully reboot the franchise with a fresh lead. We've had six games with Kratos already and his story was over after part 3. A new protagonist would have been much more welcome.

    Overall I'm very happy with what I saw. Five out of the six games I'm interested in are new IPs and even CoD: Infinite Warfare managed to excite me! There was a huge line-up of actual, full-on exclusives and in a variety of genres. Couldn't have asked for more really.

  • Microsoft announces new console Project Scorpio for holiday 2017

  • Big-Boss 14/06/2016

    As with Project NX, I see no point in announcing a new console unless you have hardware specs nailed down and some games to show running on it. I feel MS announced the Xbox Two (or whatever stupid name they come up with) to distract from the fact that this was a thoroughly underwhelming conference. All safe and predictable sequels with a couple of new IPs thrown in which really didn't look all that special. Now that I've seen some actual gameplay of Re-Core I'm more put off it than drawn towards it. Scalebound also looked confusingly similar to Final Fantasy 15.

    Don't get me wrong, the hypothetical power (and it IS hypothetical because we've heard MS describe the Xbone as the most powerful console ever when it clearly wasn't) of the Xbox Two sounds great. But with every single Xbox game now confirmed for PC I don't see why I shouldn't just build a decent gaming rig and get access to thousands of older games in addition to the latest ones. I was already considering doing this since my old laptop died but after watching this briefing it's made my choice much easier.

    Over to Sony then, who have surprisingly had next to nothing leaked from their conference yet. Hopefully it's more interesting than what we've been offered thus far but I'm not getting my hopes up. This year's E3 has been a HUGE disappointment compared to last year.

  • Horizon Zero Dawn release date confirmed for March

  • Big-Boss 06/06/2016

    Big Christmas exclusives have traditionally been an MS thing, so I don't know why "dogmanstaruk" is making a big fuss about it. Besides, did this game ever officially have a release date? I don't think so. Sony has already released Ratchet and Clank, Uncharted 4 and Alienation - all brilliant exclusives and that's despite UC4 suffering a few delays. Would he rather Sony made us all wait and release them all at Christmas to have them cannibalise each others sales?

    I don't know why he's complaining anyway. Sony have ALWAYS spread out their releases, delays or not. Metal Gear Solid 4, Killzone 2/3, God of War 3/Ascension, The Last of Us, Bloodborne and a whole lot more all released outside of the Christmas period and were all excellent games and sold well. I'm glad Sony don't shoehorn all their games into one small Christmas slot. It gives me time to play them all.

    Outside of exclusives there's also a fuck-tonne of quality third-party titles releasing. Some people seem to think that just because exclusives are spread out or delayed it somehow weakens a console's game library. Look at how much the PS4 has sold. Clearly there is a hell of a lot to play because I'm pretty sure people aren't dumb enough to blow £250+ on a games machine they'll never turn on.

  • Gran Turismo Sport ditches one of the series' big features

  • Big-Boss 31/05/2016

    Everything announced about this game has been disappointing so far. It's releasing three years into the PS4's life yet is still losing features rather than adding. We had Project Cars over a year ago and will be getting Assetto Corsa on consoles soon too. Gran Turismo is being left behind. It's greatest strength - the huge car list- is gone now as well so I'm struggling to think of what PD have been doing since GT6.

    Speaking of GT6 I really don't understand why they didn't do a cross-platform launch on both PS3 and PS4. It launched just two weeks after the PS4 released so would have been a perfect launch title, even if all it offered over the PS3 version was 1080p/60fps locked.

    Nothing about GT Sport interests me and I'll be spending my money on Assetto Corsa in a couple of months. PD will never change and it will be their downfall eventually.

  • Face-Off: Dead Island: The Definitive Collection

  • Big-Boss 31/05/2016

    I think Techland's excuse about why only the original Dead Island is on disc is bullshit. As mentioned by others already, plenty of remasters have managed to fit multiple games on one disc on PS4. Metro Redux, Uncharted, Final Fantasy X/X-2, Borderlands: THC and Resident Evil Origins all managed to do it. They've lost a sale from me as a result, which is a shame really as I missed both these games on last-gen and would have liked to play them. Reply +4

    As much as I agree that RE6 is a dreadful game, it's the highest selling in the whole franchise. So yes, catering to the CoD/Gears of War crowd did pay off for them. In a way we should be glad that the LoK franchise is retired and remembered fondly rather than being butchered in its final days.

    I'm currently on a coach to London and Ariel's Lament started playing a few seconds after I opened this article. Brought a sad smile to my face.

    The concept to this reboot sounded cool, but after reading the bit about attracting the CoD crowd and covering the main character in blood at every opportunity I'm kind of glad it got canned.

    I doubt we'll ever see a sequel/prequel/reboot to the franchise which is a shame as the original Blood Omen and Soul Reaver are outstanding games which are incredibly under-rated IMO.

    I'd absolutely love a remake of Soul Reaver in particular, with Turel included in the story as he was cut in the original due to deadlines. The decay of Nosgoth would come alive on current-gen. Alas, it'll remain a dream.

  • Digital Foundry's top ten picks for PlayStation Neo upgrades

  • Big-Boss 30/04/2016

    I honestly don't think many developers will take advantage of the Neo outside of Sony's own studios. Most will just aim for 1080p/30fps locked which is already being achieved with the majority of titles. I could be wrong of course, but outside of Sony's own games I can't see a huge difference between PS4 and Neo games developing. Few developers are going to spend the time and money it takes to update older titles for future compatibility either as they'll likely make no additional money from them.

    All in all I don't see the point of the Neo. It feels like an unnecessary mid gen refresh when the PS4 is finally hitting it's stride with some outstanding exclusives. Sony risk alienating their player base and perhaps even derailing sales altogether by splitting the market with the Neo. Time will tell if I'm correct, but I certainly won't be picking one up that's for sure.

  • Nintendo's NX console launches March 2017 globally

  • Big-Boss 27/04/2016

    I've zero interest in a console that hasn't even been revealed or given an official name. I don't remember Sony or MS ever mentioning their unannounced machines before they were revealed.

    Plus my faith in Nintendo is close to zero at this point. Despite generally enjoying the Wii U, I bought a new game for it every 3-6 months which is an utterly ridiculous wait between titles. The near complete lack of third party support as well as Nintendo's obsession with making weird controllers since the Wii has also put me off.

    Sadly, I can't see Nintendo changing their ways and it will be their downfall. They won't make a powerful console to compete with the PS4/Xbone, it wont feature a traditional controller (practically confirmed) and unless Nintendo performs a miracle it'll once again lack third party support.

    The latter issue in particular will kill the console. The Wii U was a disaster for Nintendo but they were able to ride it out because of all the money made from the Wii. Another sales failure with the NX and they'll be in serious trouble, especially considering their 3DS is approaching retirement with no successor inbound. Definitely going to play the waiting game this time that's for sure.

    Wasn't the game supposed to launch today anyway before it got delayed for a second time? By the looks of it plenty of retailers have recieved stock so it's quite annoying that we've been made to wait. It's even worse now because some lifeless pricks will be posting spoilers in every single thread they can to ruin it for everyone else. Reply +14
