  • Shadow of Mordor sequel details leaked by shop

  • Big-Boss 27/02/2017

    The first game was mostly excellent bar the final boss and ending which both felt very rushed. If they can improve on that and polish a few mechanics this could be a gem.

    Disappointed about the season pass edition being announced so early but they seem to have become a WB Games trademark now sadly. I didn't buy it for either the original Middle Earth game or Batman: Arkham Knight though and neither felt like incomplete experiences. Hopefully this will be the same. Roll on August!

  • Horizon Zero Dawn review

  • Big-Boss 20/02/2017

    Currently sitting at 89 on Metacritic after 66 reviews so it's clearly an outstanding game. Martin's opinion is in the minority and that's perfectly okay. For me, this has looked superb since the day they announced it so day one for me. Reply +15
  • Dead Space is the sequel Resident Evil 4 deserved

  • Big-Boss 20/02/2017

    Outstanding game. I'm sure EG is ashamed of the 7/10 they awarded it back in the day. Played through this again last year with surround headphones and it's still shit your pants scary. Graphically it has also stood the test of time rather well, but I think that may be because it's so dark for most of the game and it relies on its excellent lighting to create much of the atmosphere and horror.

    For me, it's a better game than RE4 in almost every single way. The unofficial RE5 - only it is set in space with monsters far more terrifying than any form of zombie. I would love a remaster at 60fps but EA is, rather surprisingly, uninterested in remastering their games this gen. Bluepoint seems to be free atm so maybe they should give them a call :D

  • Big-Boss 16/02/2017

    I remember loving Crash 3 but didn't play the first two. If this set is priced right I'll definitely pick it up. £25 is the most I'll pay for this so hopefully it's priced sensibly. Reply -2

  • PS4 Pro 'boost mode' runs unpatched PS4 games more smoothly

  • Big-Boss 03/02/2017

    Hmmm interesting. I'll wait for some DF analysis and if the results are encouraging I may consider upgrading if/when my launch PS4 dies or I get a good price for selling it. They should have had this option included from launch in all honesty, but better late than never from Soony eh? Reply 0
  • PlayStation 4 is finally getting external hard drive support

  • Big-Boss 03/02/2017

    About time Soony. This is the one feature other consoles have had for years that PS4 hasn't. My 2TB internal drive has around 500GB left which is enough for what, 5 games these days? At least now I can just plug in my old 1TB hard drive without worrying about deleting anything.

    As others have already mentioned though, it is very annoying that Sony only put an extra USB port at the back of the console on their Pro models. Most of us peasant PS4 owners now have to invest in one of those fugly USB adaptor things to accommodate extra accessories.

    Auto background synching of trophies might also be an idea they want to implement next time. I can't believe half way through the gen we still have to manually sync trophies every time we unlock them. Surely it can't be that hard eh?

  • Nioh review

  • Big-Boss 02/02/2017

    Yet another great exclusive to add to the PS4 library and we're only at the start of February! Meanwhile on Xbone there's a few more old 360 games you can play and some new controller colours... :rolleyes:

    @frazzl

    Frazzl the fanboy is devastated I see. You've already gone into all out defence mode and pretending outstanding titles like Uncharted 4 and Ratchet and Clank didn't release last year to protect your precious Xbone from looking even shitter than it already does. A ten year old PS3 game, The Last Guardian, managed to practically match the "blockbuster" Gears of War 4 on Metacritic by scoring just 2% less :lol:

    Out of the tonnes of quality PS4 exclusives releasing this year you're interested in almost none. Out of the, oh I don't know, five maybe? Exclusives releasing on the Xbone they're all "Day One can't wait another mother-fucking second purchases!!!!!!"

    And who can forget your forte of labelling all those who offer valid criticism of your beloved Xbone as Sony fanboys and failing to see the irony of your own obsessive love for MS. No one here gives a fuck how many consoles you own little Petey, you're still a brainless Xbot and you know it. You're a 40+ year old single adult spending half your free time playing games in a basement on a projector (your own words), whilst spending your remaining time fighting a non-existent war with fans of a console you don't like. Resolution and frame rate mattered to you when the 360 was ahead last gen, yet this gen when the tables have turned it's all about "the preferencccccce!" Those up-scaled 720p/900p games must look great on your projector I'm sure. :cool:

    I mean, I also own an Xbone S (currently on eBay) and used to own a Wii U. Does anyone on here give a shit? I haven't attacked fans of those consoles and have never felt that owning them gives me a right to like you do. I also don't feel the need to hand out my Gamertag on different systems to "prove" I've played a game on another system. It proves nothing, regardless of what you think. I have thousands of Gamerscore accrued during the 360 era and have no need to prove it to anyone, least of all to a child like yourself. Both the Xbone and Wii U are utterly awful consoles for me and millions of others and that is the reason why my Xbone is currently on eBay after barely three months of use and three games played. You think I'm a fanboy? Well good for you kiddo! See if I give a shit beyond this post. I won't indulge you like others have in the past. I generally avoid you like the plague, because...well...you're comparable to one.

    I have not and do not spend my time attacking fans of other consoles like you do to PlayStation fans in practically 90% of your posts, you utter bell-end. You take everything way too seriously considering we're discussing video games here. Owning multiple consoles doesn't exempt you from being a fanboy. No, frazzl it doesn't...no...just stop talking, seriously...I don't care how many consoles you own...shush, no one cares kiddo. No one. You see, it's what you say and how you behave towards others that determines if you're a fanboy. Your attitude towards fans of other consoles, especially PlayStation fans, is clear as day to every single user on EG. You have a vendetta against them as if they somehow threaten your breathing space and ability to enjoy your favoured toy. You get off on it, a bit like a glue-sniffer does.

    Finally - no, don't flatter yourself. You don't have a fan club following you around. Practically all your posts in your post history are negged to high hell because you are a thoroughly unpleasant excuse for a human being with a superiority complex. I almost feel sorry for you sometimes. You've got the hardest 12 months of your career coming up trying to paint the shit-heap 2017 Xbone lineup in a positive light. Best ask Philly for a pay rise eh? I'll pray for your sanity, a lunatic like you will need every ounce of help you can get now that your sidekick cloudskipa has gone AWOL :lol:

    Now, go ahead kiddo and cherry pick a couple of posts from my post history that suit your agenda, whilst conveniently ignoring the majority of my constructive ones. Oh look, you've done just that! Hahahahahahaha so bloody predictable! :lol:

    If I have a post or two mocking the Xbox (not its fans) you have thousands dating back to nearly a decade ago where you're furiously foaming at the mouth and attacking PlayStation fans with your favourite Phil Spencer t-shirt on. But I'm not sad like you, I've no need to sift through a decades worth of trash to show people what you are. Everyone here already knows that. Listen...shhhhhhhhh...you hear that? Someone somewhere said a slightly negative thing about Xbox - you'd better get on it frazzy boy! ;)

  • Tekken 7 delayed to June

  • Big-Boss 23/01/2017

    Even Tekken has a season pass now. Well that's just great :rolleyes:

    Tekken is my favourite fighting game but it looks like I'll be waiting for the complete edition to release before handing over my money. Tekken Tag 2, easily the best title in the franchise had what, 50 characters? All the skin swaps and stages were released for free as well. So very very disappointed with this decision.

  • Big-Boss 22/01/2017

    The review mentions that these are launching at twice the price of the Gold headset. This isn't true. I purchased the Golds around the time they launched and paid £110 for them. It's only now around the Xmas period where Sony dropped the price to around the £50-60 mark as a promotion. They were never cheap.

    *Edit: Apologies, I just checked my Amazon account and I actually paid £80 for these at launch.

    Anyway, as good as the 3D audio must sound I can't justify purchasing them if only one game makes real use of them right now. Besides, I literary just completed UC4 last night for a second time with my Golds and they are still outstanding. Another huge plus for me is that they are fully compatible with my PS3 whilst the Platinum one isn't.

    I'm going to stick with my Golds for a while yet I reckon. Unless support for 3D audio really kicks off in the future I can't see myself upgrading.

  • 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 +11
  • 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.

    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

    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.

  • 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.

    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.

    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.

  • 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.

    "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.
