  • Why can't Destiny 2 run at 60fps on PS4 Pro?

  • Brave27heart 22/05/2017

    "We'll report back on potential Destiny 2 enhancements there and comparisons with the PS4 Pro game as and when information or media becomes available"

    As well as anything noteworthy, relevant, remotely related or even vaguely mentions Destiny in any way shape or form. :)

  • Looks like Destiny 2 will ditch Grimoire Cards

    @wikidd

    TENS of millions might be pushing it. The game had something like 25 million registered players at last count, and it's fair to say not all of them loved it.

    Sorry to be pedantic. :)

  • Destiny 2 gameplay changes, new features, beta details and everything else we know so far

  • Brave27heart 19/05/2017

    "The above four areas are bigger than anything seen in the first Destiny, with the promise of much more to do."

    This sounds like the original Destinys infamous "You can climb that mountain over there" comment from Destiny 1. Bungle got so much hype going into Destiny and because of that as a PlayStation only gamer who's never owned an Xbox I was excited to see what this studio was capable of. Quite honestly I was disappointed with what I got. They did themselves no favours with the hype they built up. Comments like the mountains one, or saying "you'll always remember where you got that sweet bit of loot from" (the reality is I've ground the same missions out a dozen times each that I can't remember where any of it came from, it simply ceases to be memorable) do nothing but build hype that they simply couldn't deliver on.

    Lack of content, locking content out for the playèr base because you don't have five other friends to link up with is also nonsense and their reasoning and stubbornness simply cemented that Bungle aren't as good as they probably think they are. Harsh pricing for DLC with limited content shows poor decision making from the publisher as well.

    All of these factors mean that while I feel excited about Destiny 2, I'll wait for reviews and make a judgement closer to the time as to if I get it at full price.

    And sadly it will be the only time I don't use Eurogamer as a review source. Your passion and love for this game as individuals meant your coverage of Destiny 1 was biased in my view and you let a lot of things slide that would have been less acceptable in another game. Unlike others who accused you of being "paid off" for favourable coverage I don't believe that was the case. I simply feel that your team all shared a love for the game that made you less impartial than I wanted from a news outlet. The fact that I'm still here shows how much I value what you do, but I've learned that when it comes to Destiny it's hard for you guys not to be blinded by your love for the franchise. We all carry out biases, that's a fact of life.

    TL:DR - I'll be waiting and seeing on Destiny 2.

    Great. I bought this on ps4 based on Eurogamers recommended review. I haven't been able to play it yet but I can look forward to poor performance issues when I do?

    Really, really disappointed in Eurogamer for this. These sorts of issues NEED to be brought up in the review, as they absolutely affect someone's buying decisions. Never felt let down by Eurogamer before but I do today. Is this something you can raise between your reviews and decide if you're going to put something in place to prevent this sort of issue happening again?

  • Call of Duty: WW2 gets reveal trailer and release date

  • Brave27heart 27/04/2017

    @Dopedrop

    Exactly my feelings!!

    War is bloody awful. And it's full of personal stories. Yet here we have the same old tired "we're all that stands between the world and evil" line. I mean seriously "No mission too difficult, no sacrifice too great"....wow...so we're looking at war through the same patriotic glorifying give your life for the cause lense again are we?

    I can't wait for the day when someone does a WWII game and strips back the "glory" and patriotism and tells the actual human stories underneath it. COD isn't that game.

    COD is always going to be Cod. They were never going to take a risk with the setting, it was always going to be Americans (American developers and an American publisher) and the gameplay won't be revolutionary either. Cod always plays it safe.

    Will that make it instantly boring? No.

    Should it be dismissed because of those things? No.

    Give it a chance before throwing it under the bus.

    I am sad though that American kids must grow up thinking they have a glorious history of saving the world. The Brits, French, Russians, Poles, Aussies, and dozens of others all played their part, but kids raised in America on a diet of film, tv and videogame bias must think otherwise.

  • Snooker star says he's a recovering video game addict

  • Brave27heart 21/04/2017

    Video game addiction is just as serious and as potentially damaging as any other addiction. It shouldn't be derided because it's "just" video games. Fair play to him for speaking out.

    Also, before the daily mail gets a hold of this, banning video games because they can be addicting is like saying we should ban alcohol, or sex, or food, because they can all be addicting too.

    Honestly, just fix the bugs.

    Those who bought the game deserve that much. Those that haven't by now most likely aren't going to be swayed into buying it by an "Improved character creator". You get one chance to make an impression. You fluffed it. It's not terrible, but it's not spectacular either, and that's the legacy ME:A has now. You can't change it, so accept it, fix the bugs for those who bought the game and learn your lessons.

  • April PlayStation Plus games detailed

  • Brave27heart 29/03/2017

    @leeroye

    Agreed. Give us the option to pay half the price of ps plus and just have the online multiplayer.

    I'm not going to complain because the offerings are indie titles most of the time. I am however going to complain that the titles offered feel uninspiring. There have been some gems definitely- Rocket League being an example. But I'd rather pay less for plus and then use that money to buy the games I actually want.

    I certainly don't expect AAA games. And for God sake don't give us Knack because we don't want it. But when you compare what's been on offer on the PS3 at the start compared to now the difference is shocking. Look at what games we got in the first four years of plus -Dishonoured. Tomb Raider. Catherine. Burnout Paradise. Far Cry 2. Red Dead Redemption. Bioshock 2. Ratchet and clank.

    I'll keep going shall I?

    In one month alone we got Kingdoms of Amalur, Ico and shadow of the colossus and Demon Souls. Rayman Origins. Uncharted 3 (single player). Saints row 3. Spec ops the line. Assassins creed 3. Far Cry 3. Jak and daxter trilogy. Borderlands 2. Bioshock infinite. Shift 2. Darksiders. Motorstorm apocalypse. Deus ex. Dead space 2. Crisis 2. Resident evil 5.

    The year after ps4 launched - pro evo 2014. Payday 2. Puppeteer. Dead space 3. Crisis 3. Batman arkham asylum. Hitman HD trilogy.

    In the last year on ps3 we've had dirt 3, yakuza 5, personal 4. Those are the only big games I can see.

    That's just using ps3 as an example, and it just me cherry picking my favourites. The quality and variety has seriously declined. And on ps4 it's never gotten to the heights it did in those first 4 years on ps3. Maybe it's time to put back in place the minimum metacritic rating? There must be enough games to justify it, and maybe only make exceptions for the likes of drawn to death or Rocket League which launch as ps plus games.

    Sorry for the long post, but wanted to highlight the difference in quality. It's not an indie game prejudice at all, just a difference in quality that gets my back up.

  • For Honor tournament organisers ban the game's most overpowered hero

  • Brave27heart 29/03/2017

    For a game that relies so heavily on its roster of characters you need to be sure of balance. In honesty that isn't something that can happen until the game is really "out in the wild" and people are playing it, but Ubisoft should quicker at balance patching these things. Look at Overwatch for example. Reply 0

    I think this probably sums Destiny's up for me. Granted it's a free update, but it's basically a rehash of something they've already done.

    As a playstation only gamer for my whole life I never got to experience Bungies work before. They were given a lot of hype going into Destiny but frankly they were a huge let down - biggest disappointment for this generation for me.

    Those people saying that it'll drop in price, how much is a Wii U these days? Game are asking £234 still for the Mario kart package - more expensive than a comparable XB1 or PS4 bundle.

    Nintendo hardware rarely drops in price, so I wouldn't hold your breath. Not unless it absolutely tanks on launch.

    Looking at the current top three rated comments in this thread is really telling: Each person has a different issue that's dampened enthusiasm - price, subscription and battery life.

    Right now there's just too much that isn't clicking for Nintendo, and that's not great with a launch around the corner. If they'd nailed this they'd have created hype, a month and a half before launch, which would have seen them through with strong sales. As it stands they're turning people off and they have very little time to turn it around.

  • Nintendo Switch out 3rd March for £279.99

  • Brave27heart 13/01/2017

    Dropped the ball there Nintendo.

    Too expensive by about £30. £279.99 with a game would be okay but making it over £300 by the time you've bought something to play is too much.

    And seriously you're going to charge for online gaming?? You know your online functionality never matches up to Sony or Microsoft and you could have been the last bastion of free gaming. That's the worst news from this for me.

    Too expensive to be a second console, not powerful enough to be a first choice by having access to the top end games. You screwed the pooch I fear.

  • Eurogamer's game of the year 2016

  • Brave27heart 31/12/2016

    @DangerousDave_87

    I literally only get 1 or 2 hours a week to play video games due to work and family commitments, but the beauty of Overwatch is that the diverse cast of characters means that it's easy to find a character you can play and be reasonable with right off the bat. Soldier is a typical FPS character (and is currently one of the more powerful ones) so he's easy to pick up and play, as is Lucio. You can jump straight in with these guys and straight away feel like you're contributing and being useful.

    If you have more time the depth of characters like Zarya or Genji means you always have something to aim for, to get good at.

    Because you don't unlock perks or weapons people who have been playing for hours and hours don't have any distinct advantages - you're all using the same characters with the same skill set - so getting into the game months after launch isn't a daunting prospect as in other games. Seriously I'd recommend Overwatch to anyone, it's easily my GOTY.

    That's the sort of thing I'm hoping to hear. I'm not even looking for the big graphical powerhouses on Switch, I'd argue that Overwatch is hardly a graphical beast, but it's the smaller games such as Rocket League, Journey, Rayman Legends and Valkyria Chronicles that I'm just as keen to see come to Switch. If it's difficult to port over I can see it not happening.

    @Red821

    I'm not forgetting that, I just don't care. I'm not looking for a handheld console, I game predominantly in the living room. My Switch will never be used outdoors, and would only leave the house to take to a friends (to be immediately docked). So while I can appreciate that yes, there are third party developers who will bring games to the switch they're less likely to be ones I'm interested in.

  • Brave27heart 19/12/2016

    @Red821

    It doesn't have to be as powerful as a PS4 but it needs to have good third party support. If it lacks the ability to port over games cheaply and easily developers will shun the Switch and all that will be left is first party games. While that may still include some great IP it's not good enough after whats happened with the Wii U.

  • Brave27heart 19/12/2016

    How easy will it be for a developer to take their game that they've made for PS4, XB1 or PC, and port it to Switch. Can someone cut through the technical bits that I'm simply not smart enough to understand and answer this question?

    I think it's a given that they won't look as good, but given the specifications we've got here, is it possible to port over a game like Titanfall 2? Would it be a simple port or would it mean re-writing the code all over again specifically for Switch?

    That for me is the crux of the issue. I can take a hit in graphics and not be too upset by that, but if the process of porting current generation games over to switch becomes so difficult that it's not a feasible option for development teams, then third party support is going to be non-existent.

    Can anyone say, now that we have specs, if we have a better idea of whats possible now? I'm making no secret that I'm hoping for Overwatch on Switch, at which point I would drop my PS4, with it's expensive online multiplayer, and go Switch only.

  • Nintendo patent hints at VR support for Switch

  • Brave27heart 16/12/2016

    Here's what I don't get - if it does VR it doesn't take away from anything else it does as a console. It still plays games, is still portable and dockable, it's still the same thing. So why would you not want it to do something additional?

    Oh the experience will be poor quality! Well, buy a vive, or Occulus, or PSVR. It's not like it's the only VR option out there. You have options that meet what you want, and then there are other options for those who want a similar experience at a lower price point, even if it's not the same quality. But to snub something that would be essentially a free bonus because it's not good enough is ridiculous to me.

    I swear some of you decide that just because it doesn't meet your exacting standards that something therefore has no value to anyone else. When did we stop being amazed at what's possible and start becoming so self entitled??
    Reply +10
  • Brave27heart 16/12/2016

    Switch could easily match the VR experience you get with Samsungs Gear VR for example, but would be well behind the experience of Occulus Rift or PSVR. But, for those of us who arent convinced the games and experiences are going to be there to justify £350 + for the tech, being able to slot the Switch into a headset and get a taste of VR is hugely appealing.

    If you want to get the cutting edge technology and experience the best that VR has to offer then you have options for it. But offering VR right out of the gate, even at a lower resolution, with the only extra cost being the headset, that's a huge huge selling point. It makes the entry price for VR lower than ever (if you don't include Google cardboard).

    If Nintendo can pull that off I'll be impressed.

    @Killerbee

    "Plus The Last of Us is firmly grounded in its fictional reality. I don't think going all supernatural would really fit"

    Hearing voices/seeing people isn't necessarily supernatural, and is actually quite a common occurrence for people who've suffered trauma. if it's done well it could be a really good exploration of someone having a breakdown. Ellie is quite clearly not right; who massacres a house full of people and stops to play the guitar? Plus her hand shaking is a physical symptom of her possible fragile mental state.

    Whatever happened prior to this it must have been really bad. Like Sarah bad in TLOU....

    I think they ended so perfectly that going back, unless the story you have to tell is amazing, is only going to devalue it.

    Not saying I don't trust naughty dog, but for me uncharted 4 was one of the biggest disappointments of the year story wise, basically because it did nothing new that hasn't been done before. It didn't surprise me. The actual writing for the character dialogue was still top of the class, but the overall story was...well I'm not going into spoilers so I'll just say it was predictable and took no risks.

    That makes me worried for TLOU 2. The character dialogue will be top drawer because ND always does that better than anyone, but I fear for the story they want to tell. I'm willing to wait and hold off on judgement, and I have to say regardless of my doubts this will probably be a day one purchase for me.
