    This discussion is something that really does need to happen in the industry. Its a huge problem and we should be brave enough to confront it.

    My only issue is...I just don't like her. I can't put my finger on why exactly, maybe it's something in her voice or just the way she presents's almost...I want to say cocky? And it's not that I have any issues with strong women, quite the opposite, there's just something about her that I don't like and I find I have to try really hard to focus on what she's saying. Just my opinion, not an attack on her, I recognize the issue is entirely with me.

    This message needs spreading, if nothing else so it encourages people to talk about it.

    Some might argue Naughty Dog holds the keys to the 3rd person kingdom at the moment. :)

    Alan Wake was one of the few 360 games I actually wish had come to PS3. It might not have been technically brilliant, but it tried to create atmosphere, which you can't help but praise it for in a world of generic games.

  • Destiny has a soft level cap of 20, but you can go beyond it

  • Brave27heart 01/08/2014


    So when they increase it in future patches the consumer feels like they're getting something for nothing. It garners some level of goodwill for the developers from the gamers. You can also guarantee that people will soon start complaining about the level cap after the games launched so by then increasing it in a patch it looks like the developer listens to the gamers.

  • Face-Off: The Last of Us Remastered

  • Brave27heart 29/07/2014


    Its all about prettier graphics at this point in the generation. After a year the PS2 wasn't terribly different to PS1, and same between PS2 and PS3 (probably more so).

    Once devs have stopped making cross platform games and are used to the hardware and can really go at it then we'll start to see them shine. The reality though is that probably won't be for another two to three years. Until then, it's just shinier images.

  • Child of Light confirmed for PlayStation Vita in July

  • Brave27heart 21/05/2014

    Theres good and bad in this Ubisoft.

    The good is that this deserves to be on Vita, it's perfect for it. it's poor that you've deliberately waited until after it's released on other platforms so people like me who bought it day one on PS3 now have to face buying it a second time. Given the choice I'd have just got the Vita one.

    I won't but it again, not because it's not worth it but out of principle for shady business practices of delaying announcements to profit off people buying twice. Whats worse although I'm dying to play Valiant Hearts, I won't be buying day one, because I suspect you'll do the same again. I'll wait, and run the risk of forgetting about it or picking it up when it's on sale.

    Someone at Ubisoft needs a slap.

  • The numbers game

  • Brave27heart 05/04/2014

    Out of curiosity EG, hows it going with those reviews of games in beta/early access where you're not assigning scores? If you're not getting a huge backlash why not consider rolling it out across all reviews?

    Its not going to change until one of the big media outlets makes the first move. When it can be shown that a score isnt necessary and doesnt effect the number of hits a site gets, then others will follow suit. The amount of grief sites must get for the number given to a game alone must be reason enough to want to ditch them.

  • The Last of Us' film adaptation will follow the game's storyline

  • Brave27heart 14/03/2014

    Do. Not. Want.

    You cannot replicate the immediacy of being in the moment when you hear a clicker echoing off the walls, The panic when you fire off your last bullet and realise its one hit too few to kill that infected. Giraffes. That opening sequence. None of that can be translated into a film as well as a game. I'm sure it'll be decent, probably one of the better game to film tie ins we've seen, but I don't need this, dont want this and am very worried that it'll just sour the good name that The Last of Us has.

    But if it has to be done, use the same soundtrack. That was something special.

  • Dark Souls 2 review

  • Brave27heart 11/03/2014

    I loved Demons Souls but missed out on Dark Souls as I just didn't have the time to play it. It sounds very much like Dark Souls 2 is very good, but not as good as Dark Souls. So my question is do I play Dark Souls 2 first, then be even more amazed when I play the possibly better Dark Souls, or do I experience Dark Souls first and then Dark Souls 2? Reply +1
  • Matt Stone: South Park The Stick of Truth censorship "not that big a deal"

  • Brave27heart 07/03/2014

    The actual content thats cut is no big deal, it's not like it's particularly cool, or fun by the looks of it. The fact that anything is censored, IS a big thing. And we're not talking about real life video footage of people being killed, torture or suffering, we're talking about a cartoon, a badly drawn cartoon at that. So whats being censored is the idea of something, the idea of abortion or anal probing. And thats not a good thing. Freedom of speech and all that. Reply +2

  • Brave27heart 26/02/2014

    Elite was poorly implemented when it launched, I mean closing the game to open another application to view the sort of stats that were in game on Black Ops was a chore. It was poorly designed, poorly executed and expensive for what it was.

    Ticks all the Activision boxes.

  • Brave27heart 24/02/2014


    It's not a million miles away from what actually happened.

    Sony was going into partnership with Sega to develop a CD based games console. Sony were providing the CD tech and Sega were doing everything else. Sony had spent a large amount of money in R&D and had a working guts of a console when Sega suddenly pulled out. There was a meeting in Sonys HQ which went on for a long time about what to do. Some were saying they had the tech developed why not launch their own console? Some were against the idea. In the end someone (and I feel awful for not remembering who) stood up and said something along the lines of "Are we going to let this insult against us go unanswered?" to which the head of the company stood up and simply said "No". And thus the Playstation was born.

  • Microsoft announces first Xbox One price cut - and throws in Titanfall for free

  • Brave27heart 24/02/2014

    The sort of people who are going to drop 400 on an Xbox One are most likely 360 owners. And since you can buy Titanfall for 360 with no reduction in gameplay, only slightly less pretty graphics, most will buy it on 360. I don't think Titanfall will shift that many systems. Reply -1
  • Down the replay rabbit hole

  • Brave27heart 24/02/2014

    I wouldn't really worry about what Levine is aiming to do. When you look at what he said they were going to do with Bioshock Infinite when it was first announced and what actually shipped, I think it's fair to say his final product doesn't always match the goal.

    Thats not a criticism of BI by the way, I loved that game. And yes, it might be over in 12 hours but I'll always think fondly of it, always have those memories, and maybe occasionally boot it up for another play through. Thats the nature of games, it's not just about the experience you get while playing it but what stays with you long after you've finished.

  • Capcom addresses concern over lack of female characters in Deep Down

  • Brave27heart 19/02/2014

    I think it's improtant to have a spread of genders, races and sexualities in gaming. We appeal to a broad spectrum of society, that should be reflected in gaming, but I also believe that you can't enforce that decision on a designer. If they're writing a story that is about a male character they shouldn't be made to include a female option if they don't want to. Thats taking equality too far and remove peoples freedom to be creative.

    I actually think we do more good in the areas of diversity than are given credit for. Look at games like Dark Souls or even Cod multiplayer where you can choose male or female avatars, Mass Effect where you can choose your sexuality. Want a perfect example of strong femal lead characters that aren't oversexualised? Take a bow The Last of Us.

    Can we do better? Sure, but when you look at gaming today and the scope of diversity that it encompasses compared to even 10 or 15 years ago, we're heading in the right direction.

    I'd really like to get into PC gaming....but I just can't get my head around all the numbers. I know the components I need, I just dont know which products are good, what offers the best value, whats compatible with what, it's all just too confusing.

    I'd just like a PC that can keep pace with a PS4 and I'd like to do that for the least amount of money possible, whilst being realistic about the costs involved.

    I dont think you got my point.

    My point was with all the negative framerate issues that are being reported in the media Microsoft have to work harder to fix the problems behind it. If you bought an Xbox One its not the end of the world, eventually they'll get it sorted.

    This is not news worthy. Resolution is either going to be the same between both or higher on PS4. Whats nice is that the Microsofts tactic used last gen of demanding developers keep parity between PS3 and 360 isn't going to wash this gen. Developers are doing their own thing.

    And if you're an XBO user these resolution stores are good news, because it means that Microsoft will try harder to overcome these obstacles. it may take time but you're getting a better console experience at the end of it.

  • The Wolf Among Us, Episode 2: Smoke and Mirrors review

  • Brave27heart 11/02/2014


    Again thats down to individual preference. To you it was worth a lower score. personally I felt a 9 was about right, I had an incredible experience with it that was a breath of fresh air from the usual games out there. It's all subjective. For example I'm trying to play through Ocarina of Time on my 3DS that someone bought me for Christmas and...I'm almost embarressed to admit it...not really enjoying it. I mean it's okay, but it's not as sensational as I'd hoped. I have the feelign that once I've completed it I'll forget it almost instantly. That opinion goes against the majority of what people think, which doesn't mean I'm wrong, or they're wrong, we're just different.

    I appreciate that it might not be to your tatses and thats fine. Some people want a real challenge in their games and TWD doesn't really provide that. However I've found after a long day at work sometimes what I want is a game like TWD where I don't have to think too hard and can just enjoy the characters and story, and thats fine too. There's no one game thats going to appeal to everyone.

  • Brave27heart 11/02/2014

    I loved TWD and really enjoyed the first episode of TWAU, but the wait is just too long. What they needed to do is make the first three episodes and have them all ready to release, then release them one every 6-8 weeks while they make the last two epsodes. Making one and then releasing it before you know you'll be able to make the second episode in decent time is not very well organised, plus the framerate issues in a game that isn't really that taxing to consoles lets be honest, is very concerning.

    My impressions are that Teltale games have amazing story writers. They also appear to have terrible game developers.

    I passed on this game because I objected to the whole "making someone commit suicide" mechanic that was present, which struck a nerve with me. Thats not to say the game was bad, it looked interesting and very nice art style. Given another shot at it I think they could have developed something really impressive. The ideas had potential to be really interesting. Reply -6
  • Can a 100 PC graphics card match next-gen console?

  • Brave27heart 29/01/2014


    I totally get the whole social thing and it was a big reason for me sticking to console. Now I really only tend to game with one close friend, and whats actually pushed me into looking at PC is he's adamant that he wont pay for PS Plus to play online, so that makes the transition a bit easier as either way we won't be gaming together on PS4

    Wow, some really great feedback from people. It's much appreciated.

    It's quite daunting going from something that pretty much looks after itself without any upkeep to a platform that needs a bit more work. I think the range of indie titles that are available, some great exclusives and the fact that there's nothing stopping me from hooking it up to a tv and using a control pad. Plus Oculus Rift has the potential to be huge and even if it's not an industry changer, I can't think of any innovation in the last 5 or 6 years that excites me more.

    It's a more expensive start up going for PC over consoles, but in the long run it'll work out the same or cheaper.

    Want an honest no bias answer - I'm seriously considering PC going forward, my issue is I like the idea of buying a box and not having to worry about hardware for the next 6 or 7 years. If I buy a good PC, say one that can run Battlefield 4 on high settings now, will this still be able to play games in 6 or 7 years time without having to upgrade if I choose not to? Obviously I don't expect it to play Battlefield 8 on high settings in 7 years time, but will it match next gen consoles in the future?

    The other concern is every PC I've ever owned started really quick to do anything and eventually got slower and slower as time went on. If I have a PC just for gaming do you still have this issue? Is the hardware eventually going to fail on me, because I've never had a console fail on me so reliability is a factor in my decision.
