  • Gran Turismo Sport fixes the series' racing - but at what cost?

  • Brave27heart 12/10/2017

    I really enjoyed my time with it and would seriously consider it except that I couldn't get a race in sport mode at all. I could register for the event, put in a qualifying time, but when it started to search for racers at the allotted time it would come up with an error message and then a black screen. Not one race in three hours last night. Plus it kept crashing and booting me out to the ps4 home screen.

    This close to launch I'd have hoped the demo would at least run solidly. It doesn't fill me with enough confidence to buy it at launch.

  • Who are the Nine? Destiny fans think they've finally found answers

  • Brave27heart 18/09/2017

    Reading those nine descriptions of the possible lore, I couldn't help but think two things:

    Who on earth writes this stuff?

    Who on earth approves this stuff for release into the game?

    Is it meant to sound grandiose and enigmatic? Because it just sounds like pretentious drivel to me. I love that they put these mysteries into the Destiny universe but learn a little subtlety.

  • What Remains of Edith Finch director Ian Dallas reflects on his unforgettable family drama

  • Brave27heart 28/07/2017

    I bought it at the full £15.99 asking price.
    Not had one second of buyers remorse.

    It's a beautiful game, tells touching, beautiful, tragic stories. Yes it's short but it's like watching a short, beautiful crafted movie, or reading a perfectly paced and written book, there's no filler, no time spent wasted. Every minute of the 4 hours or so I spent with the game was a joy. Worth every penny.

  • Mighty No. 9's belated Kickstarter reward includes a DIY build-a-box and too big manual

    "Oh, and this collector's edition doesn't come with a physical copy of the game, though that was at least clear from the $60 tier's description."

    I'm assuming that at least got a digital copy of the game got that price...otherwise...ouch...

    Even so that's a lot of money for a digital download, some self assembly cardboard and a bit of paper...with nothing to actually put inside it...

    Fix the bugs, in particular the crashing, and I'll buy. Looks like a lot of fun but the amount of time I have available for gaming is limited as it is, so to have to content with crashes each time I try to get a session is a deal breaker. Reply 0
  • Is The Lost Legacy another farewell for Uncharted, or the start of something else?

  • Brave27heart 25/07/2017

    Erm....am I the only one who doesn't see the ending of Uncharted 4 as a definitive ending? To describe it as a perfect goodbye suggests that there's no chance to return to Nathan Drakes adventures. I think they could easily do another Uncharted with him in it. Reply +7

  • Brave27heart 10/07/2017

    Developers aren't going to spend the extra time and resources on specific pro enhancements. Thst was always gping to be the case for the majority. Where it can be done with minimal effort - or if it's a first party studio looking to push the pro onto consumers at Sony's behest - itll be done, but most simply won't bother.

    Call it lazy, call it simple business economics, but thats the way its going to be in most cases.

  • GAME hikes price of SNES mini in-store deposit from £10 to £50

  • Brave27heart 27/06/2017

    @Rpt81

    I think it might out them off because there's less of an upfront cost. If you want one for launch you really have to pre-order it in the first 48 hours. If you're a scalper looking to buy ten to sell on then at £10 pre order a pop thats only £100 to find today. At £50 that's £500 You have to find. Might mean less get bought to sell on, if only by a few.

    Without going into spoiler territory, am I the only one who thinks it would be perfectly feasible to do another Nathan Drake adventure? They didn't exactly make it so it was impossible to tell another of his stories.

    I get that they've said that they won't but people are treating the ending of UC4 as if it left no room for the possibility which isn't how I saw it. And come the PS5 when Sony are looking for a big name to shift consoles....

  • I'm not sure what David Cage is trying to say with Detroit

  • Brave27heart 21/06/2017

    I get that the author wants a game to be brave and make a point, but if Detroit has never proclaimed to be that sort of game it feels like an unjust criticism to label it with.

    That's like saying I want Fifa 18 to be a commentary on the way the huge influx of money is changing the sport and the impact of excessive greed widening the expanse between players and fans, and then being disappointed when it inevitably doesn't deliver.

  • How Call of Duty: WW2 handles swastikas and female soldiers

  • Brave27heart 20/06/2017

    @Derblington

    I just think that you should introduce her without the "strong" descriptor. It smacks a little of "Look! We have STRONG female characters in our game too". It's a little like just trying to tick a check box and not actually doing anything to further the case of women in video games.

    Personally I think the moment we stop trying to force the idea of "strong women" into gaming, or any other media for that matter, and just focus on creating real, genuine female characters, you end up with strong women anyway. Because (shock horror) women are bloody strong.

    Sorry for the rant, I just think the fact that they feel the need to articulate that a woman can be strong in this day and age is a joke, and they're not helping by going along with it. /rant. :)

  • Sony's flat E3 conference shows signs of a mid-generation lull

  • Brave27heart 13/06/2017

    Would hardly call it a mid generation lull - look at the likes of Horizon, Nier, etc that have come out this year I'd hardly call it a lull, but I would say that the E3 showing didn't blow me away.

    Days Gone is basically a poor mans Last of Us, which probably made sense in a world before TLOU 2 got announced.

    Uncharted is a standalone expansion, not a full game

    God of War is a little like gears of War/Halo...not really sure we're getting anything innovative.

    Spiderman is...well...Spiderman. I'm reluctant to get excited about a superhero game because there have been so few good ones.

    Detroit is suffering because Beyond was quite average and David cage has lost a bit of his shine as a result.

    What was shown was okay, but nothing that blew me away. nothing that made me think "Wow this is different". there was no FFVII remake, or Shenmue, or Last Guardian etc. Whatever you might think of Spiderman, it's hardly a system seller is it? I think thats what i mean by a mid generation lull - the focus is no longer of creating the games to sell systems, it's more about creating solid content all year round. Thats not a bad thing, but it doesn make for a bit of a dull E3.

    Microsofts conference was the same. thankfully Ubisoft showed up to brighten the party.

  • Xbox One X promises a strong and stable line-up

  • Brave27heart 12/06/2017

    MS are almost...almost...there. The focus on games above all else is good to see, after all it's always about the games at the end of the day. But as for the hardware, if you don't have a killer IP, something like Breath Of The Wild to really sell your system, then you're going to struggle. I think Scorpio will still sell to the hardcore graphics wizards* who want the latest cutting edge tech, but for most people it won't be something they can justify. I doubt you'll see attachment rates of 1 in 5 like the Pro.

  • Xbox is close to being a brilliant games platform, but it needs games to get it there

  • Brave27heart 08/06/2017

    I still believe mid gen upgrades are damaging to the industry. You're tied to the previous generation because developers can't use the additional power to it's full effect - you still have to make the game run on the base hardware. So all you get is a little bit smoother and a little bit prettier. And the expense of that is the true next generation of consoles gets pushed back another 1-2 years.

    I'd rather Sony and MS had ditched the pro and scorpio and set their sights on a true next gen console in 2018/19. Instead of the next gen being 2020 or so.

  • 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 playŤr 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?

    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.

  • Brave27heart 27/04/2017

    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.

    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.

    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 a game that relies so heavily on its roster of characters you need to be sure of balance.
