  • Rainbow Six Siege Operation Red Crow comes out next week

  • Bravestinsane 11/11/2016

    FUCK OFF if they have 10 million players.

    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.

    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.

  • Civilization 6 review

  • Bravestinsane 25/10/2016


    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.

    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.

    I used to work for GAME when I was at Uni.


    They are not hiring an extra member of staff, they will just have the guy who's normally walking around the store trying to sell people stuff hover around that area or take someone off the tills.

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

  • The Overwatch kid who challenged ageist stereotypes

  • Bravestinsane 16/10/2016


    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...

    Well more than 10 years... fuck i'm old =/

    The same thing happened to me while i was at uni with Guitar Hero, got it really cheap then it was cancelled because they couldn't fulfill it.

    Can I have my own news story too?

    I will whine more if that's what you need for click bait.

  • Celebs named for Dara O Briain's Go 8 Bit TV video game show

  • Bravestinsane 28/07/2016

    As much as i like Dara he's being milked so badly.

    I mean robot wars he was good but why the fuck is he wearing a suit, I expect he will be in one in this as well. It just doesn't fit with the "gamer" I don't know anyone who wears a suit while playing games it's just weird.

    It's not going to be a show for gamers its going to be a show for non gamers to laugh at crap.

    I'd like to see a real show about games that talked about hardware, games had competitions etc.

    I might watch one episode but that will probably be up.

  • 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.

  • PayPal says Steam Summer starts next week

  • Bravestinsane 17/06/2016

    TBH I don't care I used to spend so much on games ill never play, but for the past 2 years both the summer and Christmas sales have been lame, I have bought about 2 maybe 3 games in total.

    The thing is most of the games on sale are so bloody old that I have them all or too new that they're only 30% off and if I wanted them that badly I would have got them right away at full price.

  • How to take Fallout 4 base building to the next level

  • Bravestinsane 19/11/2015

    I've figured a few things out with trial and error, it's annoying that on the broken houses you have to have a box on the wall outside of each room then run a wire to each one for power.

    Not watched this yet but I will when I get home hopefully there will be a different way of doing it.

  • Rainbow Six Siege open beta kicks off next week

  • Bravestinsane 19/11/2015

    Too many people are complaining about this being too expensive.... why don't you move that mouse cursor up to that "Instant Gaming" button at the top of the page and buy it for 20... I did and ill be enjoying it on release.

    As it surprised me how fun it was for an online only game. (Especially from Ubi)

    EDIT: Just realised that this is coming out on console..... where you have to pay full this was more aimed at other PC gamers.

  • So, how much do Steam Machines cost in the UK?

  • Bravestinsane 14/11/2015


    Standard forum bullshit to be honest.

    Funny really how the other guy called me out saying how a Core2Duo still out performs a PS3 when i was talking about PS4 and XBONE
    Reply 0
  • Bravestinsane 11/11/2015

    These are so pointless

    The cheapest are more expensive than a console for the same performance.

    Consoles get better over time, the last games that come out on a console look better than the launch titles.

    PC is the reverse, I started on High and Ultra... now i'm on Medium/Low... another year or two and ill be on Low.

    As much as PCs are superior mine is now on 7 years and can still run Fallout 4 on roughly PS4 levels.

    However I spent 1500 to get that longevity 8/9 years life out of it by the time i'm forced to upgrade.

    For 500 you will be lucky to get 3/4 years life out of a steam box. With different you're best buying a bloody console or just getting a good PC, it's not difficult to build a small form factor, or just get steam link.

  • Faster hard drives boost Xbox One Fallout 4 performance

  • Bravestinsane 11/11/2015

    Would be interesting to see PC loads on there with a 5400, 7200 and a SSD.

    I have a 1TB Samsung EVO.

    I'm loading faster than those PS4 times.

    It would be helpful if you said what SSD you used they all have different read and write times.

    I suspect an the Intel pro one would perform faster on PC than my Samsung, like wise with a PCi SSD.

    Likewise it would be interesting to know the make you used in your test, because if it's a cheaper on and I shoved in a Samsung Evo it would probably load even fast on both a PS4 and XBONE

  • Rainbow Six Siege PC system requirements revealed

  • Bravestinsane 11/11/2015

    I was in the Beta and it's very well optimized, i'm playing on an 8 year old PC. Core2Duo, 7790, and 4gb DDR2 Ram.

    Admittedly i was running medium settings but i was able to get roughly 50fps in 1080p.

    Game is very smooth and very very few FPS drops.

  • Radeon R9 390X 8GB review

  • Bravestinsane 22/06/2015


    30 a year is an extreme example under the assumption that both cards will spend 100 hours each per month under full load.

    Few games ever cause cards to draw full power at all time, combined with idle time where power draw is negligible on both cards.

    In real world use I would doubt that the difference would be 100 over 3 years.

    You said you were on 3 cards in 10-15 years, that's a new card every 3-5 years. It would take 3 years to make the saving so based on the more average user 3-5 years to make up the difference sounds reasonable.

    Of course this is based on 100 hours a month, some may play less which others more so you never know really.

    Also this is based on UK Tarifs, so in America where costs are cheaper the savings will take even longer to reach.

    (Not sure if that makes sense busy atm so not had time to think it all through before i type =P)

  • Bravestinsane 22/06/2015


    I think the best way to summarise it really is that the cost does make a difference but it all balances out in someway.

    Best just to get the one that performs the best based on the games and the resolution you're playing at.

    He's slightly out, I used gocompare to get tariffs of how much you would actually pay.

    Worked out a 90 a year on AMD, 59 a year on Nvidia, (based on 100 hours a month of full load)
    Reply +8
  • Bravestinsane 22/06/2015


    If you game for 100 hours a month the difference is 30 a year in cost to run.

    Hardly breaking the bank I would say, if someone can afford the top tier cards chances are they worry very little about electric cost.

    Even then the difference per month works out as less than a pint of beer.

    Ah nice i didn't know that not played Eve (Well other than the 1 month free trial) think the Runescape one has been going for nearly 2 years now not sure.

    But it's great really, pisses some players off because people are effectively buying in game gold, but at the end of the day, bots and buying from illegitimate sites are too common and this is a great way of controlling it to be safer and better for the companies. (Not like WoW needs the money though lol)

  • Bravestinsane 20/04/2015

    This is taken directly from Runescape. They done it on there a while ago now and it proved to be quite successful and reduced the number of bots around in the game by quite a large amount.

    I think all mmos should do something like this to remove people from botting.

  • Xbox One top-selling US console for second month running

    Yes but the PS4 is already 350, they just added games.

    MS CUT the price of the Xbone AND added games.

    If they had put the PS4 to 300 - 350 with decent games I would have got one, but the only deal I saw was 350 with Drive Club and TLOU, I already have TLOU on PS4, I wasn't interested in buying re-release of a game that's only a year old and a driving game that's broken.

    I was up for buying one, but I will probably wait another year lol.
