  • The Last of Us fans have a huge Part 2 theory

  • Brave27heart 06/12/2016

    @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....

  • The Last of Us: Part 2 announced, Ellie and Joel to return

  • Brave27heart 04/12/2016

    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.

  • PlayStation Plus December freebies includes Invisible, Inc.

  • Brave27heart 30/11/2016

    Is there any chance that Eurogamer could start doing ps plus (and xbox gwg) reviews for titles that they haven't already reviewed? You've given Invisible inc. A recommended so I'm looking forward to that but there's no review for Stories. For someone like me who has an Internet connection that is the equivalent of Aldis own brand products it would take me at least a day to download any of these games and knowing what's worth my time and what isn't would be great.

  • Gone Home is free this weekend on PC, Mac and Linux

  • Brave27heart 12/11/2016

    @Ubermenschkind

    I'm getting a sense that you really don't like this game :)

    That's cool, and moreover you give your valid opinions as to why so I'm certainly not going to hold that against you, heck I'll even +1 someone who can explain why they feel the way they do in as clear a way as you have. We don't share the same opinion about the game, I happened to really enjoy it myself but that's the beauty of everyone being different.

    Whilst it may not move the discussion about sexuality in gaming forward much, I do still think that once it's been done once in a mainstream way (and I would argue that Gone Home is mainstream, in so much as it's well known) it acts as an enabler, meaning other games can follow suit. For that reason alone I think it's important.

    That won't necessarily translate to fun for some people though! I had fun with it, others will have been bored and others will have taken exception to the game on a fundamental level so will have strong feelings of dislike. I don't think you should be negged for that if you're presenting valid reasons why you feel that way. Each to their own.

    @Ubermenschkind

    You might not have liked how they tackled sexuality, but you know what, give them props for actually bringing the conversation to the table. They may not have handled it perfectly, but the fact that they were willing to bring the subject up at all means that one day someone will come along and do it better. That's how progression is made, step by step.

    Also: "For people that need something about hope and love right now" - do console owners not need hope and love? :(

  • Brave27heart 08/11/2016

    Crytek make beautiful looking, relatively bug free games, but boy do they have zero ideas how to make an actual game thats fun.

    I rather suspect this is why they've done nothing with the Timesplitters license - like my mum with a smart phone they simply have no idea what to do with it.

    Rise of the Tomb Raider has real issues coping with sub-pixel detail, resulting in shimmering and pixel-popping that severely attracts from what is otherwise a simply beautiful game"

    Shouldn't that be detracts rather than attracts?

  • Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare review

  • Brave27heart 07/11/2016

    I've enjoyed what I've played of the campaign. It's pure Saturday night action movie stuff - I don't have to think about it, just shoot stuff and enjoy the big explosions. Sometimes that sort of fun is a welcome break.

    Probably wont touch multiplayer but looking forward to zombies with friends too.

  • Watch: Hands-on with Overwatch's Sombra

  • Brave27heart 05/11/2016

    I think we'll probably see less Tracer as a result of Sombras toolkit. Sombras just as agile, more health, one button press get out jail teleport and a more effective ultimate. Sorry love!

    I wonder about Reinhardts shield too. It seemed like hacking enemies was quite quick to do, but maybe it's like McCrees dead eye where it takes longer depending on the character? So hacking Tracer should be quick to do (sorry love!) but hacking Reinhardt takes 3-4 seconds. If you have to be within a certain distance (like Symmetras lock on for her main weapon) and keep line if sight that means hacking Reinhardts shield needs a bit of risk taking to do it.

    It would also only make sense to hack abilities where electronics are used. So Symmetra, Dva, Zarya, Winston etc would be effected completely but it shouldn't impact on Road Hog, Reaper, Widowmaker (ultimate aside) and McCree. McCree seems to be a direct counter to Sombra. Interesting to see the effect on Bastions.

  • EA committed to Titanfall series for "many, many years" to come

    "We believe that Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2, while they have some overlap, fulfill very different motivations in what a player is looking for."

    That may be the case but I imagine most people are in the same boat as me and buying two full priced 40 games in a month isn't a viable option. EA not thinking about its customers again.

  • Face-Off: Battlefield 1

  • Brave27heart 29/10/2016

    "In fact, at 1000p the presentation often looks very similar to a native 1080p image"

    Does the extra 80p make that much difference? Could I notice it with my naked eye? I'm genuinely asking as someone who has little knowledge in this area. It seems silly to describe 1000p as "similar" to 1080p when it sounds like it would be near identical. Is it the native bit that makes the difference?.

  • Everything new in the Nintendo Switch trailer

  • Brave27heart 20/10/2016

    @jonathanharding-rath

    I'd accept 250 for the console and a pack in game - something like Splaroon or Mario Kart 8. I think that's a sweet spot. 250 for a base console without a game leaves the possibility of still getting a game and console for less than 300 which would be the upper limit of what I think they should be aiming for.
    Reply +3
  • Brave27heart 20/10/2016

    Concept is good. Design isn't bad. Name...it'll probably grow on me.

    Three big big questions remain.

    1. Cost - anywhere north of 300 to reasonably get gaming (including games and peripherals) and I think it'll struggle.

    2. Battery - how long does it last on the go? Less than 2 hours and that's a problem.

    3. Games - can we expect the latest call of duty, fifa or final fantasy on this console or are we reduced to last gen remasters? It's not a huge deal breaker but I won't be trading my time on my ps4 if there isn't the latest games available.

    I think the games point is also inexcusable in some regards. Almost all indie games outo in the last couple of years should be easy enough to run on Switch, so no reason not to get them on board. While something on the scope of battlefield 1 or witcher 3 might be a push I can't see something like overwatch being too taxing.

    Also, bonus point 4 - make sure online is free.

    @The_shlaaaag_returns - "Nothing is more heartbreaking than getting a Symettra main in your team for a competitive match."

    I played a competitive match the other day with TWO Symettra's on offense. On freaking offence! Needless to say it was a disaster.

    I don't know if seeing a Symettra in your team is as heartbreaking as seeing an Ana, a Hanzo and a Widowmaker all together. The amount of times I've seen three snipers on one team is truly heartbreaking.

  • Blizzard reveals fix for Overwatch thumbstick acceleration control

  • Brave27heart 26/09/2016

    Can only be a good thing.

    Now if they could just tweak the amount of points you get/lose in competitive I'd be happy. It's better this season but still not there. I lost ten games in a row and dropped from 2200 down to 1500. I win 9 of the next ten and I'm up to 1800. And I'm scoring at least one or two gold medals and one or two silvers each game so it's not like I'm playing poorly and getting my wins through luck.

    Also I drew a match and picked up two gold medals and a silver and my rank score didn't move, so I wonder if it's not even attached to personal performance at all? A bit of clarity on how it's calculated Blizzard would go a long way.

  • FIFA 17 doesn't have Iceland because of a row over money

  • Brave27heart 22/09/2016

    There are 47 national teams in Fifa 17, so if 11,000 is the average figure (and it's possibly higher) then they spend over half a million a year on licenses for the international teams alone. When you factor in the top leagues in Europe, Americas, Asia etc they must spend several million on licenses sure. I never realised the figures were so big. Reply +8

    Let's be honest though - "EA might have a hit on it's hands" - it's Battlefield, it's one of those intellectual properties that will be a multi million seller regardless.

  • Brave27heart 13/09/2016

    I'm happy with 1080 30fps, as long as the game play is fun. Hell I'll take 900 30 fps if the game play is fun.

    Remember that thing? Game play? It used to be the reason we all bought games before we needed something to feel superior about.

  • Life after console generations has one big upside

  • Brave27heart 07/09/2016

    Let me explain what I mean by cash grab. These consoles are not something that was needed. If you think of the couple of years before this generation launched it was clear that the ps3/360 gen had gone on too long. Here we're only just getting into the swing of things and already there are new models with more power. And while the games coming out will play on original ps4s do you think that will last long? How long before we get Neo editions of games with added content/features?

    I won't be buying Neo (in case anyone was uncertain) and I have no issue with people who do, but my fear is that this leads to the same type of market as mobile phones, where a new console is required every 3 years in order to enjoy certain experiences. For example I'd be gutted if say the next final fantasy was optimised for Neo and was consequently unplayable on old ps4s because of poor performance. That's the possible kind of market this sort of thing might create.

    My issue isn't these consoles per se, it's where they might lead. And yes, it might not end up that way but people said that about things like dlc and season passes. Money talks.

    When I say money grab it's like if you go to buy a north face jacket. You can get one for 50, one for 90 or one for 150. The cheapest one tends to be cheaper materials, but once you get to the 90 you're using the best materials there are. The 150 exists for one reason only - because if North Face don't sell one at that price their competitors will and people will buy it. Ypu dont get anything more over the 90 one. Neo exists because of Scorpio, which exists because of Neo. If one doesn't do it the other will and will make money from it.

    If nothing else I've given you a buyers tip about jackets (same goes for walking boots too).

    Edit: don't get me wrong if the new consoles have zero impact on those with the older models I'll happily eat my words, do the game of thrones walk of shame and proclaim to the world I was wrong.

  • Brave27heart 07/09/2016

    Utter nonsense in my humble opinion. All my previous consoles fit I to one box under my bed, games included (granted it's a big box but it fits under my debit just fine). If I want to play any of the classics it takes five minutes to pull out and plug it all in. Hardly the struggle of the ages is it?

    Also "It is a quite reasonable hope that this policy will extend to their eventual successors, too." Really? You really think so? Because I think backwards compatibility has become so ingrained in the culture now that no one will do it any more. Why spend money on a feature few people with use?

    Neo and Scorpio are money grabs from Sony and Microsoft for those who want the latest cutting edge hardware. If that's your thing then great, but I'm not happy about it.

  • Brave27heart 02/09/2016

    @Sober-Si

    You're a gentleman and a scholar. Thank you.

    Since I only *just* managed gold my target is mid-gold tier for season two. I did my placement games and got a starting rank of 41, then promptly dropped in the space of the next ten games down as low as 34 I think. Took me the rest of the season to recover to 41 again.

    Quick play has certainly felt different in between seasons. Much more serious, and to be honest I prefer it to remain the mode you can just dip into and have a bit of fun. there needs to be a less serious place to counter the ultra seriousness of seasons mode.

  • NX is different, and different is Nintendo's best option

  • Brave27heart 28/07/2016

    For me it needs two things to succeed:

    1. price - currently on Game's website the Wii U with Mario Kart 8 is 235 new, almost four years down the line and following weaker sales than expected. It was too much at launch. it's still too much now. NX needs to hit the right pricing from the get go. 200 would make me consider it but I think much more than that and people will baulk at it.

    2. Games - it needs a decent launch line up, with at least two big games from the get go. I would also expect them to look at re-releasing Wii u games on the NX as remasters - games like Splatoon and Mario Kart 8 would provide an extensive launch line up that most people won't have played before

    Do those two things and I'd trade in my PS4 for one. This generation has been a let down for me to be honest.

  • Overwatch patch fixes Zarya, Winston and Mercy bugs

  • Brave27heart 07/07/2016

    Competitive mode is downright broken. Lose a match and you lose a whole rank. Win and you gain between 1/4 and 1/2 of a rank. I can't tell why that would be the case. Players dropping out and not being replaced is just unacceptable. In a tightly balanced 6 vs 6 match up losing just one player makes it so much harder. Losing 2 makes it impossible. However you want to fix it is up to you but just do it - normal play works brilliantly with drop out drop in game play. Competitive mode is ruined by not having it.

    How about whatever percent take of the match I play I get that reward/loss? So if I play 100% of the match I get all the rewards or all the loss of rank, but if I only play the last 10% I get 10% of the gain or loss of rank?

    As frustrating as competitive mode is, I'm still having a blast with this game.
