  • Jelly Deals: Razer discounting its gaming hardware this weekend

  • Bravestinsane 10/11/2017

    Those deals are crap... Got my Logitech G900 for £90 Which is the best mouse in terms of the sensor.

    My Corsair K70 was 120.

    Only the cheap stuff has good deals, the high end stuff still isn't competative.

    Then again Razer are the Apple of the gaming world.

  • Overwatch's Hallowe'en event is here, and just look at those lovely outfits

  • Bravestinsane 10/10/2017

    @jasonfletcher I can see where he's coming from.

    Even though I play Overwatch I see his point.

    I remember a couple of years ago I would check out Eurogamer on a daily basis multiple times a day because there was always something new.

    Now I check once maybe twice a week if that, frankly there's no content on here now.

    I know before clicking there will be another article on Destiny.

    In fact I just paused writing this, went to the front page 19 articles today.

    2 CoD, 1 Destiny 1 Overwatch (Well 1 Destiny and Overwatch on as well because easter eggs in games are news worthy now)games covered A LOT, 3 ADVERTS (Jelly Deals)


    I just went on Kotaku too compare 16 articles the same as Eurogamer (I dont count adverts) Yet they have 16 different topics, different games.

    Of the remaining articles they are all games covered last week, some the week before and so on so on.

    There are shit tonnes of games coming out so many indies they could look at, inform us about, yet it's just the same games over and over.

    It would be like BBC Sport talking about football and only mentioning Man U and Liverpool... (They may actually do that I dont watch football I don't even know if that's a good reference lol)

  • Jelly Deals: Rise of the Tomb Raider for £10 / $12 with the new Humble Monthly

  • Bravestinsane 04/09/2017

    ...Well as i bought it in the Steam Summer Sales i've just had to pause my Monthy Sub for the 5th month in a row.

    One of these months there will be a game that either interests me and I don't already have.

    @FilthyAnimal

    I already own KF2 and I love it! Which is why I paused that months sub.

    However even though I own it the value as the lead game was pathetic. You can buy it for £6.55 on instant gaming.

    There is literally no reason to take the gamble (I'm glad i didn't take it!) for the unknown games.


    I'm a little gutted about Tomb Raider as i got it during the Summer Sales I would have actually bought this month if I didn't already own it.

  • Destiny 2 blocks some popular game capture programs and Discord overlays

  • Bravestinsane 10/08/2017

    @abdulhoque

    Sorry for the late reply.

    If you were to play the game across two monitors it would just be stretched across the two of them, if you have a high res monitor you don't see more than what I would see you just have a better quality image.

    with a two monitor set up its common to have the game running in borderless on one monitor while you have the internet open on another for example.

    You then tab between the two of them without ever having to minimise the game.

    @ProTw33ks

    100% with you on that one, dual monitors is fabulous! Glorious master race!

    In all seriousness though I often pause to check things on the next, I spend a lot of time in Discord too and often need to make subtle adjustments to peoples noise levels.

    Fullscreen is so restrictive and windowed just looks weird.

  • Bravestinsane 04/08/2017

    I was more pissed off when I bought Dying Light and it doesn't have Windowed Borderless..

    It should actually be a criminal offense considering it released only a couple of years ago.

    Will still buy Destiny 2 though, I only ever play in borderless anyway so this will have no impact for me whatsoever.

    I honestly can't fathom playing in fullscreen anymore the tab delays urg.

  • Steam Greenlight had to go, but its replacement might just work

  • Bravestinsane 11/02/2017

    @CinnoMan

    I'm not a dev but me and some friends are talking about it (will be years though as it will be self taught)

    But this hasn't impacted me but my attitude has had knock on effect on devs.

    I no longer browse the Steam store, I can't be arsed to sift through piles of turd to find that one gem. I would be buying games if that wasn't the case.

    In a way personally it's a good thing for me i'm saving money, I haven't bought a single Steam game in the last 3 years.

    I now buy everything from Instant-Gaming as they only have a small selection and in general they will be games that work.

    There will be others like me who through simply giving up on the steam store front will no longer be seeing indi games and as such they are directly losing money because of this system.

    I agree there is a vast ocean of fish to catch and eat. However i'm a consumer not a fisherman, I go to Tesco and pick from a selection knowing that all of those fish are edible and not going to kill me.

    Steam needs to get rid of the poisonous ones.

    There are not too many games on Steam in the same way there aren't too many songs on Spotify, there aren't too many books in libraries, I'd say too many films on Netflix as well but I'm in the UK and we only have six and a picture of a swan threatening to break your arm or something. Just pretend I'm not in the UK if it helps. You all know what I mean.

    Either way not only is the claim of too many games a ridiculous thing, it's misunderstanding the problems Valve (and by extension, us) face.

    The problem (if we really must call it one) isn't one of finding a good game amongst the crap, it's finding a good game amongst a whole load of other good games that might not necessarily interest us. Not every game made will interest us, a fan of only dense role playing games may have little interest in a visual novel about romancing a salmon or a walking simulator about a boy called Timmy who steals ducks.
    What on EARTH are you chatting on about?

    1 - Libraries - People don't have an issue because while certain books may not be to everyone's tastes they ALL go through publishers and are carefully selected.
    2 - Spotify - You're paying a month by month subscription (Unless your free like me!) to listen to songs, that you can skip immediately if it's not your taste.

    You don't need to download, install, delete to make space if games are crap.

    People wouldn't care about the number of games on Steam if you paid a sub and could access them all.

    3 - "The problem (if we really must call it one) isn't one of finding a good game amongst the crap, it's finding a good game amongst a whole load of other good games that might not necessarily interest us"

    I'm sorry to be rude but that the actual fuck are you smoking? Can I have some because what warped reality do you live in?

    I think it was Jim Stearling who gave this interesting figure somewhere in the last a few months ago around

    60% of THE ENTIRE FUCKING STEAM LIBRARY was released in 2016.



    You're telling me that all of them are good? and they may just not interest me?

    There's like 100 minecraft asset flips, 100s of generic 1 level games, and at the extreme there's bullshit like digital homicide.

    Steam as it stands is becoming a pile of shit, there amount of crap on there you need to sift through to find good games is disgusting.

    It's tarred the names of devs who ACTUALLY GIVE SHIT about what they make and has brought about a bad reputation to the entire platform.

    Like people have mentioned shops carefully choose their products, they categorise them, choose specific brands and place them in specific places to maximize revenue.

    Steam are not doing that they are flinging shit into our faces and hoping some of it sticks.

    I love the CONCEPT of greenlight the idea ANYONE can make a game is the best thing, but lets be realistic Steam/Valve need to seriously sort their shit out.

    But lets face reality Steam isn't the only platform anymore, gone are the days where U-Play and Origin were a pile of shit, we have GOG and devs can pick and choose.

    Steam needs to set itself apart from the rest currently it's winning due to it's brand and that's it, nothing more nothing less, the way they curate (or lack of it) their games is a big negative it's doing more harm to the indy scene than helping it, genuinely good games are being pushed out of sight due to the sheer numbers of bullshit on the store.

    No ones asking Steam to return to 2010, we just want them to get their shit together.

    Don't think I've done it in years though ain't be arsed half of the time I agree with the psychological impact though sometimes it makes me laugh, some times it annoys me other times I hae the response of "i'm going to hunt you down and destroy you for that"

    However there is nothing more satisfying shooting someone in the head as they teabag your team mate, like the article says sometimes you see people personalities as they play and you just imagine their smiles vanish as they die from their own arrogance.

  • £60 Zelda: Breath of the Wild for Nintendo Switch now £50 on Amazon UK

  • Bravestinsane 18/01/2017

    This is scary for the health of the Switch.

    Amazon often undercuts but for Argos to do it, means they are not getting the orders they desire so have cut it to generate them.

    To cut a price of a unreleased game on a console not yet released isn't a good sign.

    The only people losing money is Argos and Amazon if Nintendo cut the price all retailers would have dropped the cost.

    Even though i've not bought anything in several steam stales each time I went to the store front it would refresh to a different set of games to look at.

    Now with this "Tailored" store front it's just the same page all day until the next, there's no random lists I have to manually look for sales.

    Who the fuck window shops games >.<

    Steam sales win due to impulse purchases this has no winning formula for impluse purchases this year.

    Christ, no where near that on PC, it's taking me 10-15mins to find a game in the evening and when it does i'm often matched with people who outrank me by miles and it's a whitewash.

    I hope more people do buy it as it is without a doubt an excellent game.

    While the new operators look good especially the new attack to help breach fortified walls, I really hope they fix the servers and it pulls people back to ranked games because atm, the times I play, it's dead.

    @youhavenomail

    I don't play ranked OW (Personally I don't enjoy the game as much as others)

    But playing Rainbow 6 siege I can relate to your issue.

    I CAN'T STAND being put up against premades when I'm soloing, especially in Europe, it's not like the USA where I can 100% guarantee I will be able to communicate with everyone in Europe it's just too hard and I have a higher chance of being put with someone who doesn't speak English than does just by shear numbers, overall sit reduces the experience for me. This is then amplified when you put 5 solo players vs a 5 man premade (is it 6v6 in OW?)it's just really bloody annoying.

    I don't see why they can't have separate matchmaking for Teams and Solo players on any game, being put against a full team of communicating players vs a mismatch is horrible and are the least enjoyable games overall. (Unless they all speak with headsets and communicate then it's fine)

    However on the flip side, those same matches are THE MOST satisfying when you win against a full team who are normally a clan when it's us who are not talking because we can't.

    Same with me, I would have paid £40 as I did get hundreds upon hundreds of hours out of Civ V, but after I paid full price on launch for Beyond Earth I'm going to wait until the Christmas Sales, hopefully it will be reduced a bit. £40 is the most ill pay for a normal edition of a PC game.

    The last I worked there it was back in 2012/2013 period, left in June.

    I haven't been in a GAME store since I left as I'm not a full time PC gamer and hardly touch my console so CDKeys and Instant Gaming is for me.

    However when I worked there we were always good with giving away free stuff like you said providing someone buys something else, even then depending on who's around, manager behind you... hey just buy a bottle of Mountain Dew for £1 and you can have it!

    Of course you always had the regulars who you chat too and knew, and if they walked in you just give them stuff anyway as you know they will be back regardless we always gave stuff away to people who always shopped with us regardless of whether they bought something or not.

    Price wise they're extortionate, I don't know if it's the same in Spain but here they undercut their own Brick and Morter stores with their own online store.... which is just dumb.

    Then their online stores are pretty much undercut by every other online store. Peripherals are way overpriced especially due to their arrangement with Sony. It's so much cheaper online that paying for same day delivery would still cost less.

    @drawfull Yeh I understand both sides of the argument, at the end of the day it's an £300+ product that people are physically handling, rather than locked in a cabinet where you can only hold a controller.

    On balance though I'm on the side of it should be free.

    The best solution on balance would be people should register to try, put your name down for a time slot in store, if no one is on it, it's free, but give people the option to pay for an extended session or something.

    @petebritish

    It's not ridiculous at all.

    Free codes are given with the game... when I worked there on some products would have a VERY limited number of promotional codes, usually based on the number of pre-orders plus a few extra codes.

    In general when we had loads of spare codes they were kept spare and often given as a gesture to people who bought other products.

    "hey do you have the new Pokemon game?.. well here's a code to go with your copy of Call of Duty"

    Pokemon is a game that GAME will sell loads of so it's normal for them to keep the codes for customers.

    There's nothing more annoying than "Hey I haven't bought this off you but can I have the free stuff that I didn't get with it"

    However I agree with you don't shop at game, I don't think I have bought a thing from them for over 3 years now.

    Yes I worked at the flagship in Southampton, we often had late night events where a Sony Rep would come, but if that's the case their wages would be paid for by Sony and not GAME this situation from what I understand is that GAME are making money not Sony.

    Sony often have promotional events where a rep comes to the store to show a demo of an unreleased game, as did Nintendo (Didn't see many MS ones but they were there too) In ALL those cases GAME didn't pay them anything it's promotional word of mouth advertising.

    Unless GAME are splitting the profits with Sony, in my opinion that's not a valid excuse for charging.

    They wont be suddenly employing 300 new staff members across their stores so they have one person staying with the PSVR

    @ziggy_played_guitar

    I'm in the UK myself, it's not the case.

    It's simply the case that the few who shout the loudest are the ones who get heard.

    For us in the UK that means the extreme left morons who think children should be locked up in a protective blow up bubble until they are 18 because god forbid they will stub their tow because that will mean someone needs to be jailed and executed because they put a fucking table at a 80 degree angle rather than a 90 degree angle.

    Most people are more reasonable though, they are aware of the dangers that exist online and look out for it, but are not so blinded that they assume everyone is like that.

    My nephew is around 11 now, and plays online and my step brother is fully aware and takes interest but doesn't automatically assume the worst.

    I play on PC... I don't have this issue.

    In general I find people far more respectful.

    Though I expect this it due to younger gamers not being as common on PC, after all the entry point is far more expensive and most parents would rather buy a cheaper console.

    The biggest problem with PC gaming I find is the lack of communication overall, everyone is in their own private TS or Discord chats that no one actually talks in the bloody games....

    Overall I have no issue playing with younger players I could say I find it weird how kids are playing these types of games 13, 14 playing CoD, Battlefield (Yes I know this is about Overwatch but i mean in general) but the truth is 10 years ago i was that kid...

  • Are 4K visuals really the best use for Project Scorpio and PlayStation Neo?

  • Bravestinsane 18/06/2016

    Do gamers really want extreme resolution displays? AMD's next-gen GPU launch - RX 480 - aims squarely at the mainstream audience gaming at 1080p or under. And based on this stat, it's not hard to see why.
    100% wrong

    480 is aimed at 1440p, AMD is on record saying that is a 1440p card.
    470 is aimed at 1080p
    460 is aimed at low resource games such as League etc.
