  • Forza Horizon 2's first expansion introduces new cars, new area

  • Cartho 19/12/2014

    @frazzl
    I generally agree.

    BUT
    I do like Driveclub's track racing style. Sometimes I jsut want to have a proper race around a proper track. Not drive through a quaint hamlet in the South of France. I think Driveclub delivers a faster, more immediate form of racing.

    That's very much personal preference though. If FH2 had Driveclub's weather I would be all out of jizz. FH2 has sublime handling and a very cool style.

    I bought at Xbox One ages ago. I also own Forza Horizon 2 and Driveclub.

    Wild weather whips across the island?

    I'm not sure a battle over weather effects is one they want to start with Driveclub to be honest...

  • Elite: Dangerous and the art of the galactic grind

  • Cartho 16/12/2014

    Nice preview! Sounds awesome.

    Despite this, the previewer had some misgivings. Why have EG not done a "4 reasons you might not want to preorder Elite Dangerous" video yet? Or is it only big console exclusives that get those kinds of negative previews?

  • Total War: Arena resurfaces, enters closed alpha

  • Cartho 15/12/2014

    I really hope this is good, always loved the Total War games and the idea of MOBAs but have found it hard to get into them due to the truly hideous communities they usually have.

    Dear ass holes: Stick with DOTA and LoL.

  • Windows 10 leak reveals new Xbox app for PC

  • Cartho 15/12/2014

    I'm not getting excited. They've jerked our chains with announcements about how much they care about PC gaming repeatedly since the launch of the Xbox 360. It was all rubbish. Every. Single. Bit. Reply 0
  • Video: Why you might not want to pre-order The Order

  • Cartho 13/12/2014

    @shotbyascot
    Erm, I'm not sure whether you are aware of this but... EG get to play pretty much every single big (and even medium) game before release.

    So does pretty much every major gaming website. That's kind of the point....

    Also lol at another "last gen gameplay" comment.

    Can we just stop with that rubbish? Why not write an article enlightening the world on what you think next gen gameplay is then EG? There was no mention of "last gen gameplay" in the Halo MCC review. Yet that is about the most last gen (and even the gen before last) game you can possibly buy. Oh yeah, I know why they didn't mention it, because the reviewer happened to like it.

    This is the problem with the last gen gameplay comment. It is a totally subjective opinion which has no place in any kind of objective criticism.

    Also, someone on Neogaf who was at PSX has pointed out that the little guide book thing they had out on the stands around The Order's gameplay booth thing quite clearly stated that it was an unfinished game and that there were bugs in it that the developers were aware of.

    If Ian read this, why has he brought them up in this video? If he didn't read it, WHY THE HELL NOT? Surely that's his job?

    EG have put themselves in an extremely difficult position. They now need to do similar videos like this for every other big game being released. Videos which focus squarely on "faults". If they don't, they will leave themselves open to accusations of bias / having an agenda against specific games.

    Can't fathom how this article was allowed to be posted by the EG management.

    This is one of the worst examples of games journalism I've ever seen. He's complaining about bugs? In a PREVIEW BUILD of an UNFINISHED game?

    Has a game EVER had so much negative press attention before it's even released?

    It honestly feels like there has been a negative agenda about this game from the press from day one, and I say this as a happy owner of both the Xbox One AND PS4.

    Are we going to get more articles like this from Eurogamer?

    "Why you may not want to pre order Assassin's Creed 426 - BECAUSE ITS THE SAME BLOODY GAME AS LAST YEAR. So we'll give it a decent 7/10 score anyway"

    Interestingly, other people's reactions from the PSX demo were much more positive, saying that the gunplay in particular feels pretty solid.

    He complains about "hand holding" gameplay..... Didn't see any mention of this in the Call of Duty Advanced Warfare review, which, like it's predecessors, is one of the most structured, hand hold heavy games in existence.

    Still, I'm looking forward to the previews / reviews for the next Gears of War game. Which will be another third person shooter but will also be immune to the kind of criticism that The Order is getting because it's Gears of War.

    Clickbait journalism at its very finest, I thought Eurogamer was better than this. I mean why not do a general article about the dangers of preordering games? That would seem to make much more sense. Many of the complaints he is levelling here could be levelled at any one of a number of AAA games this year and last year. The Crew was a buggy mess and yet got given an 8/10 score by Eurogamer. Again, WHY is The Order being singled out for so much negative attention?

  • Xbox One overtakes PS4 sales for November in UK and US

  • Cartho 12/12/2014

    With all of the stunning deals + HALO + Sunset Overdrive etc, it would have been utterly calamitous for Microsoft if they hadn't outsold PS4 in US and UK this month. They bet the farm on it, the sheer amount of price cuts and deals they used shows this. If they had lost as well then it would have shown that pretty much nothing was going to stop the PS4's momentum.

    MS need to learn from this - if they had released the Xbox One at a sensible price point last year then they might be on a much more equal footing with Sony right now. As it is, they will never admit how many units they have sold to customers overall, because they know it is FAR lower than PS4 has. Right now estimates for Xbox One are still under the 10 million mark worldwide (potentially around 7-8 million total). Sony have sold over 14 million PS4s (they announced that at PSX).

    So yes, Microsoft managed to outsell PS4 in their two absolutely core territories for the first time in a year. Those two territories must make up the lion share of Microsoft's audience at the moment. But lets not get too carried away. PS4 is still miles infront in terms of sales and has a very heavy 2015 lined up. The Xbox One has good games coming in 2015 but, again, not until the autumn. What have MS got in the locker to combat Bloodborne or The Order 1886 (which is looking better and better with each gameplay reveal)?

    People are so negative about the Order and I don't quite get why. They've never said it's anything other than a third person story based game. There's absolutely nothing wrong with a good TPS. If The Order has a good, absorbing story and great gunplay then it will be a great game. Not entirely sure what people are expecting.... Reply 0

    In before the Order gets criticised for being a 3rd person shooter. New Gears of War probably won't be but hey, it's a random way to criticise a game! Reply 0
  • Cartho 06/12/2014

    I like how this isn't a super bombastic show with lots of mountain dew adverts and angry call of duty style announcements.

    It's got a very Japanese, very Playstation feel to it. Now we just need Crash Bandicoot to arrive. Hurling an apple down the throat of a bipedal crocodile.
