    It won't look anything like that come the real, final retail game.

    @jabberwoky Don't forget all the baddies(n generic good guys too) will look & sound near exactly the same. And the side activities & quests(if you can even call them that) will be but the same shallow/tedious three missions endlessly repeated all over the huge empty map. Not to mention the hand-holding like we're all retards. But one thing in its favour it'll look damn pretty im sure. Its gonna be great...NAHT! -_-. Reply +1

    The games is absolutely horrid looking in many places. The massive downgrades and false advertising is disgusting. Its like WatchDogs except there hardly any outrage. You game journalists are pathetic. From & Namco are deceiving scumbags as well.

    I mean just look at this...What the fuck happened!?. It looks like ps2 game from the early 2000s...
    Before in the demo/gameplay previews/ads:


    After in the retail version. This is what the actual game looks like:

    Its not acceptable. EG you should get in contact with FROM & Namco and ask them to explain themslves. Why switch from what we saw in the previews?. Why the fasle advertising?, you need to call them out on this.

  • BioWare "discussed" Mass Effect PS4/Xbox One remasters

  • Cobalt_Jackal 03/03/2014

    Mass effect 1 & especially 2 were generation defining games. Nigh on masterpieces(esp 2 the best in the series imo). But the same can't be said for ME3, apart of the the Tuchunka, Rannoch arcs and the soundtrack the rest of the game was didn't live up to the greatness set up by the previous two. Left alot to be desired etc. And of course hhe infamous ending imo which was/is just the tip of the iceberg with regards to what was wrong/where EAware fucked up with ME3. So much potential and they wasted it. For that reason i wouldn't want three included in any remaster.1 & 2 maybe...but again i've played them so many times it'd have to be a massive discount price release(& include every single last bit of DLC/extra content they ever made for the series) for me to consider, even though i love those games. I won't be taken for a fool by EAware. Reply 0
  • Current-gen and next-gen Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes compared in new video

  • Cobalt_Jackal 20/02/2014

    @xuiton The PS4 is only 5/6 times more powerful and is basically pretty shitty(in an proper next-gen 2014 context)4 year old midrange hardware from 2010. So its not much more powerful at all really. Certainly its not top of the line, bleeding edge tech/hardware like the PS3(and 360) was for their time. I think in terms of graphics and things like framerate/advanced AI etc this console next-gen will be quite a let down to many who were/are expecting better. The PS4 & XB1 are simply not & will never be capable enough of giving a true actual next-gen experience. Its PS3.5 for the next 8 years im afraid. Reply -1
  • Founders leave Burnout and NFS: Hot Pursuit studio Criterion

  • Cobalt_Jackal 04/01/2014

    @mannyYearsAgo

    Because in the greed driven capitalist system we live in is all about short termism/quick bumper profits at the expense of the long term & sustainability(Its not just EA either). Its all about the now in the extreme. Anything for a few extra zero's on the shareholders quarterly financial reports even if that's causing total destruction to all & everything around these corporate psychopaths don't care... In their warped world its: Profits before people and a healthy environment etc. I think we need too as a species, together all for one & one for all to move away & break free from such a world that will ultimately doom us all and not lead to the betterment that peoples have always wished for/desired.

  • Games of 2013: Grand Theft Auto 5

    @agent55 Don't forget the driving mechanics I general physics too. Which are equally atrocious as the shooting. Awful IMO. Reply -11
  • Cobalt_Jackal 26/12/2013

    I too think the game wasn't all that it was/is cracked up to be. I mean lile i've said before after 5 years it didn't live up-to the hype at all really. At first it seems good but past the initial technical wow factor it falls apart. For a supposed 5 years development time it sure doesn't feel like that. I mean it feels/really is incredibly dumbed down in key aspects(the absolutely atrocious arcade driving/bikes physics and general Euphoria physics for instance. A huge step backwards there). For 5 years dev time the game also feels inconsistent & rushed in many places too and also many features are rather half-assed/or missing all together(though like Bethesda, Bioware et tel R* are known liars..but they get a free pass to spout BS to the fans. You game "journalists" are too coward to call them out on it) etc. Plus a shitty, unnecessary online indeed(one that has clearly took time & resources from a short, severely lacking, far too linear/ non-interactive, boring and at its core fairly uninspired singleplayer/story mode that could've done with them).
    The game only sold so much cuz its GTA. Rockstar could literally take a massive diarrhea dump in a case, label it Grand Theft Auto and millions would buy & defend it/refuse to see any flaws without thinking. Its that big in today's collective psyche/pop culture(like COD, FIFA or Pokemon)it doesn't matter how bad it is it would sell like hotcakes regardless.

    Anyways truth be told i expected much more from R*/GTA V. They have defo done better in the past(VC, SA, RDR, even IV to an extent). And GTA V imo just isn't as good as it could've n should've been. Fails to live up to its potential and the hype by a long way. Defo not the GOTY. I hope R* return to form with the next installment(don't listen to the instant gratification whiners noob idiots who ruined GTA V, dumbed it down servilely. Don't listen to them for a start. Make the game you want too make R* not what they want. No online multiplayer too)and finally make a GTA that finally takes San Andreas's crown as the best in the series. Here's hoping GTA VI or whatever it'll be titled will do just that. Though sadly i think it won't as there's simply too much money involved\more so to be made.

  • FIFA 14 is UK Christmas 2013 number one

  • Cobalt_Jackal 23/12/2013

    After recently playing next-gen NBA 2K14 I find it hard to go back to FIFA 14/EA sports's games in general. They just seem so extremely lacking, bare-bones and ultimately rather crappy/lazy when in comparison to what Visual Concepts/2K are doing in that area imo.

    I'd love for Visual Concepts to make a football game. Or at least for EA Sports to learn and take a few things from them for future Fifa's. There's sooooo much more they could and should do to vastly improve the game imo.

  • NSA, GCHQ can listen to Xbox Live chat communications

  • Cobalt_Jackal 09/12/2013

    @Arcturas It appears the so called *conspiracy theorists* were right all along...Who'd of thunk it ;).

    But really don't forget Aldous Huxley's Brave New World too.

    But 1984 is the instruction manual for these ppl and the new world order... The neoliberal, plutocratic corporatocracy they want too/actively have been & still are creating over these past few decades. You see the capitalist system/economic model as we know it is has failed, is in its death throws and the power hungry global elites, the 1 percent(and the NSA & GCHQ are merely organs of the state, thus one of the many weapons(like the central banks/general international finance nexus. mainstream media and the military industrial complex for instance) at the 1%'ers disposal) are getting scared. Thus in their paranoia as they(like the parasites they are)continue to take, steal and hoard the collective wealth of the 99% they spy on us, try to infiltrate every facet of our daily lives as to maintain the current status quo & make sure us *plebs* aren't plotting a revolt/a overthrow of this rotten, corrupt, utterly failed system, doing away with the status-quo and a subsequently implementing better way to organise society, put the humanity into humanity and put people/the environment before profits...Now that can't be allowed to happen in their warped word these physcopaths inhabit. Dangerous times were living in.

    Anyways Stay safe, be vigilant... & ultimately prepared for the time approaches ever closer when decisive action on our part, the people's part will have to say enough is enough to these scumbags 1789 stylee. Its not a matter of if but when i believe.

  • Killzone Shadow Fall review

  • Cobalt_Jackal 14/11/2013

    @scuffpuppies Agreed. KZ1 and esp 2 were excellent FPS games. I think KZ2 imo(both SP & MP wise)was the FPS of the generation and one of the best shooters of all time. But with 3 i think they went too much in the direction of COD. Sony/GG wanted a slice of the COD pie n tried to please those that never liked the series to begin with and the game was a dumbed down, diluted, pretty weak mess as a result. It lost that uniqueness and all that, that made Killzone well killzone too. And defo a step backwards from KZ2. To me it was only killzone in name only. A huge disappointment. I hope shadow fall goes back to KZ2 and what made it great. I hope its like is like that instead. Reply +1

  • Mass Effect 4 teaser images released by BioWare

  • Cobalt_Jackal 08/11/2013

    Mass Effect 2 was the best in the series imo. Make ME4 more like that.
    With regards to the mako and ME1 exploration imo it wasn't very good. Just because you could land on lotsa worlds(more teeny tiny tiiiiny barren areas)doesn't make it ME1 more epic. This idea that epic = bigger is a fallacy. In ME1 all those bits of rock were just pointless, uniteresting bits of fluff, copy n pasted with no hand crafted detail, no variation it was tedious and boring. I think ME2 handled it better. Sure the universe was a bit smaller in a physical sense, but it was more varied, felt much more interesting place to explore, felt much more lived in/real and better realised too imo. I hope EAware don't regress back to ME1 style exploration to please a the whining RPG snobs that say *ME1 was the best handsdown*, *it had awesome, proper exploration* or that it *was the only one that was an actual RPG* and carry on like everything after was total shit. Yes ME3 left alot, a hella lot to be desired. But it had one or two redeeming qualities imo(Tuchunka, Rannoch. The combat system etc). But i do think ME 1 & esp 2 were better.

    Mass Effect still has alot of potential imo. I just hope they don't mess it up(again). But knowing EA are behind this, im being cautious & skeptical.

    I bet alot of the people's on here hating on COD went out and bought the latest Pokemon game a short while back. Thus they're in no position to attack COD as stale, bland or repetitive(and yes it maybe those things, but still) and mock its fanbase too etc. When they themselves enjoy their own equivalent of COD.

    Anyways i've never liked COD. This review is too generous imo. I think COD's influence has certainly been detrimental to gaming in many regards. But alas sadly ppl still buy it.

  • Letter from America: why Wii U isn't selling

  • Cobalt_Jackal 20/10/2013

    Because its an horribly outdated(that goes for WII-U's/their online infrastructure too), under-specced, overpriced piece of shit(again Ninty just doing the bare minimum) + plus on top of that is no games...Its just the same crap Nintendo have been offering for a while now. And rightly most people can see threw it and are tired of their repetitive, uninspired, rather in general child-like/or so more child orientated offerings.

    Also Nintendo only have themselves to blame. They radically changed directions with the Wii, they made their bed now they have to lie in it. It brought incredible short-term success but at the cost of long term burning of bridges with alot of their previous core fans. Now an even smaller core of aging hardcore fans that buy anything Nintendo(even a case with a dump inside but labeled Mario or Zelda they'd buy that)and the nostalgia dollar really isn't enough, really can't save them in the home-console business. In a similar situation to Sega is where'll they end up eventually.

    Oh how the mighty have fallen. Such a shame. But alas such is life. Things can't n don't last forever. Every dog has its day and Nintendo had theirs a long time ago now.

    me of being a fanboy?
    Your always so quick to call others fanboys...But you are(and whether its platform or games and its both)your a fanboy yourself. I mean just look at your history of posts on here. You have in the past and still continue to bash Sony/slag off PlayStation 3 and its games(sometimes games you haven't even played) whenever the chance arises, constantly defending MS ad their decisions n games in recent times in contrast. Talk about anti-sony fanboy. Your pretty much a hardcore Nintendo fanboy too, claiming(and im paraphrasing) that they make they "still make the best games" and "are innovative". You never have a bad word to say about Nintendo or their platform/products no matter what they do. Always defending them to the hilt etc. Also you've shown yourself of being a pretty rabid, mindless fanboy with regards to GTA: V recently. Again defending the game to the hilt, unable to take criticism of it and refusing to admit R* have messed up in some ways. I mean heck you even defended that atrocious launch of GTA: Online you can't get anymore fanboy than that(And hypocritical too seeing as you love calling others fanboys when you too engage in the exact same thing as some of the other posters on here). You can say otherwise but you know that's not the truth.

  • BioWare: Mass Effect 4 may not relate to Shepard's story "at all, whatsoever"

  • Cobalt_Jackal 15/10/2013

    @shellnelsen
    He made the Geth for me. They just weren't the same in ME3. Not too mention his writing felt more in tone of what Mass Effect was about, like he understood it in a way the new writers(apart from John Dombrow & Patrick Weekes as the exceptions)just didn't. Chris L'Etoile, His writing it was more sciency n somewhat cerebral like good hard sci-fi is. ME3 was missing alot of that i think mainly down too him not being involved. I hope he comes back for ME4.

  • Cobalt_Jackal 15/10/2013

    Mass Effect 2 was the best in the series imo(I actually greatly prefer Mass Effect 2's pacing and almost episodic nature to Mass Effect 1's big slog through the traditional BioWare Four Areas Then End Game plot line. Mass Effect 2 is like a great season of scifi television, with a few episodes about the core metaplot and then a lot of character(really, really great) episodes in the middle). More of that please. Also i just wanna say the people who proclaim ME1 the best then carry on like everything after that was complete shit and no longer an RPG are nothing but RPG snobs. Honestly Mass effect was never an actual RPG to start with and also the "depth" that was cut out from ME1 was cut out for a reason. Seriously, that inventory system was atrocious not too mention the ridiculous number of weapons were all pretty much the same with some slight stat differences and besides it all become pointless anyway when you got the Spectre Class weapons which are the best in-game. Also just because the first game gives you the illusion of freedom, doesn't mean it actually counted for anything. The Mako roving was again so utterly pointless as you go from place to place in empty lifeless little worlds n buildings and structures with the same copy & paste environments over and over again. Really this whole notion of ME1 being the best as if its that black n white is BS... 2 and to a much lesser extent 3 improved on many things from ME1.

    Lastly I don't see how ME2 is less of an RPG than 1. You still have one of nine origin story combinations. You still have six classes to choose from. Yes the actual skill list is shorter than ME1 but a lot of fluff was removed (Intimidate/Charm, Spectre Training/Class Training, Weapon Training). The reduction in powers is compensated by the addition of MORE team members and their combinations also add to the layer of customisability.

    It just seems like the automatic thing to say, "... yeah ME2 has less RPG and more action ...". I just don't get it. Sure, ME3 has fewer and less interesting squad mates so that one can be said to be just an action shooter. But not ME2, nope.



    Anyways back on topic I think this is the best road to go down. Shepard's arc is done...And as much as i loved it(well the first two entries..three not so much and not just cuz the ending sucked ass. And not nice ass either ;))But is Time to move on and do something new. But don't do a prequel that'd be just treading old ground(I think a prequel is a non starter all together really. We already know how it'll turn out. ME3 tainted the rest of the series, it just failed to live up to expectations and anything revisiting past events would just be pointless. I defo think that whatever happens next EAwa... i mean Bioware will have to go with a sequel, move forward. A clean slate, starting fresh is the only way for the ME franchise to continue on IMO)and tbh they're gonna need to do something special but with EA in the picture im not so sure. I hope im proven wrong though. I think they should just Maybe set it a few centuries/thousands of years in the future, after the end of ME3(with the destroy ending made canon), and simply go from there. Have it only loosely connected to the ME1-3 trilogy. As if the memory of Shepard, the Reapers etc has all faded from public awareness and is now thought of as merely a myth from the distant past. The story itself i feel should be more grounded in the life of the everyday galactic citizen.... No more saving the galaxy or fighting for survival or anything like that. Make it just your usual routine mission.

  • Pokémon X and Y sales hit four million in two days

  • Cobalt_Jackal 15/10/2013

    How is the Pokemon phenomena any different than COD?. 4 million in two days is crazy. Honestly it appears they're the same thing: Games rehashed to death for a quick profit, wildly popular among children/man. The mechanical differences from entry to entry are subtle and instead each new entry is just "the same but with more stuff." They know they can get away with it because they have such a huge fanbase who don't care about quality only nostalgia or mindless, repetitive "fun".

    I bet if COD was a Nintendo game that many of these fans played in their childhood they would be defending it tooth and nail and sayings its amazing.

  • Rockstar makes up for GTA Online launch by showering players with GTA$

  • Cobalt_Jackal 11/10/2013

    What about us Single-Player guys who don't do the online?. I mean once you complete the SP there's nothing to do in the world. It feel like R* have just mostly focused on the online portion and given us a barely interactive world/bare-bones singleplayer game with features/interiors/activities etc that have been clearly cut out, tooken out and put into GTA Online(R* Lied about that). The SP really is quite boring/lacking in many areas(there's only 69 main missions for instance, some of them are just drive from point A to B. WTF!. Driving has been so dumbed down to the point that's its not even fun to simply cruise around anymore. Same with the Base physics and damage/explosions etc just causing carnage just isn't fun anymore either because its all been scaled back, dumbed down for the tard masses). But i digress..as i was saying.. A huge detailed world in SP and there's fuck all to do all because of some shitty online mode that isn't even that good.

    I mean after playing the online for awhile its just so dull and repetitive imo. Your in a empty baron world. No npcs or traffic and doing the same missions over and over and over again...Countless TDM's and races. And if you don't have any friends or a crew GTA Online is even worse. There's nothing for solo guys like myself. R* have designed GTAO not for players like me. Honestly i wished they'd never of wasted resources & time on this mode and instead just focused solely on the singleplayer which is what GTA has always(or now was)been about. In V i find the SP to be lacking a great deal. The game defo did not live up to its potential or the hype in any way.

    A 7 outta 10 from me.

  • Two Daz Dillinger tracks are in GTA 5 - and he's not happy

    @Sir_Walter_Rally
    Its not just the music but the talk-shows that are a disappointment as well imo. So, soooo unfunny. Plus there's only two. Chakra Attack in Los Santos and the Blaine County one, both are way to repetitive & aren't very long and there seems to be a lack of content on them when in comparison to previous GTAs. They feel rushed really. I think R* dropped the ball hard on the Radio Stations this time round. Also whilst there maybe 250 songs or something like that it doesn't feel like that. A crappy soundtrack i agree with you. GTA: VC, SA & IV are all better both musically and talk-show wise. Their soundtracks had a great selection. Also I wish Marice Chavez with Pressing Issues or Judge Grady/Just or Unjust had made a return in V.

  • Nintendo announces three new Wii U hardware bundles

  • Cobalt_Jackal 10/10/2013

    And the Wii U continues to die its sad, slow, drawn-out oh so inevitable death. Nintendo lost their touch years ago now. Its only a matter of time(when not if)before they become another Sega imo. But then that's what happens when you bring out another overpriced, under-specced piece of shit with really no good games to make the purchase worthwhile. Nintendo for too long have been resting on their laurels & continuously relying on the nostalgia-dollar from a large part of their ultra-core(manchild)fanbase...But as were seeing that can't work for ever.

    Shame really i use to be a big Ninty fan loved the N64 & Cube(some generation defining games there. All-time classics)...But times change. I changed. Gaming evolves and what their offering simply doesn't appeal, doesn't cut it anymore for me(and many, many others). TBH I can't see Nintendo getting out of this or ever really being a major force in console gaming again. Their time has come & gone one has to say, Such is life.

    @darkmorgado

    You mean get over it like the ppl who got over GTAIV's *shit handling*?..Oh that's right they didn't and complained till rockstar changed it to what we have now. So no i won't get over it, im going too make myself heard(along with many, many others who are not pleased)till R* listen like they did last time.

    Also GTAIV handling wasn't shit. Yes it wasn't perfect but it was far from shit. I don't know how you or anyone can welcome a regression from realistic physics which match the realistic tone of the world/enhance the game to going back to ps2 style physics and a game in V that is confused with immersion breaking back n forth between realistic & aracde.

    Clearly you must welcome dumbing down in games. Removal of depth etc. But its a double standard. I mean your a fan of the Souls games right?...now imagine if from software dumbed down the next Souls game to appeal to the masses for bigger sales no doubt you would complain or when EA have dumbed down their games you've(n many others) been on here complaining at their actions yet when R* go and the exact same thing you have no issue with it. Why the double standard?. Either its totally ok or it isn't. So its quite clear in some regard you and yor ilk welcome the dumbing down of games. Enjoy your lowest common denominator, Hollywood future idiot. Its unthinking, instant-gratification idiots like you that will be the death of core gaming once and for all. If you allow R* to get away with this then you are partly responsible for ushering in this new era of casualised games lacking depth.

    But i digress. And by saying *the only person*, your just trying to use the vocal minority card as a way of you dismissing my/other people's complaints by appealing to majority rule. You think that if you convince people that those complaining are a minority, then it will allow majority rule to overcome those people's complaints and get back what you want. Well i won't be silenced. Its the same with you again bringing up one joke i made like 3yrs ago now. Seriously get over it, it was an edgy possibly ill-timed joke, i apologised at the time, so time to move on(though if you wanna play that game. well you really can't talk coming from a guy who sued the NHS for a large sum of money, sued the nhs cuz he got fired/sued on on dubious grounds then when onto the forums to boast about it etc. bit rich really coming from you)...but again your just trying to discredit me and thus my opinions on the game. Like all the other 12 year old fanboys defending this game to the hilt its pretty telling you don't in anyway engage with my valid complaints but instead go into ad-holmium attacks/childish *well just don't play or go n play IV*/irrelevant BS that has absolutely nothing, nothing to do with my complaints about the game. Its pathetic really. Still i don't care if you wanna engage in distraction tactics. I hope R* enjoy their new audience of tards. You two deserve each other.

    I see no fix for the driving/dumbed down Euphoria physics engine or a fix for the lack of interiors/enter-able buildings(single player mode) and awful radio stations(so repetitive and in the case of the Talk radio desperately unfunny)...That's disappointing :(.

    Maybe the next patch will do something about all that. Im still hoping.

  • Rockstar advises GTA 5 players avoid garages until a bug is fixed

  • Cobalt_Jackal 24/09/2013

    Im glad someone can see where im coming from instead of mindlessly praising the game.

    See i just think by dumbing it down it just serves to break the immersion more, especially with terrible suspension model(or lack of). Drive a car onto a curb at low speed and watch how the car magically pops a few inches up to sit on top of the curb. Go get a truck and take it to the countryside and try to slowly drive over some rocks and just watch what happens. Or the fact You can no longer out maneuver the cops by being better driver than they are, because their cars, like yours, will just dart in whatever direction they aim. The only reason you lose them is because A) your car is faster, B) they gave up because you made so many turns (game is dumbed down) or C) they ran into something.


    Driving at reasonable speeds(which is almost impossible now) is also a good thing for immersion. You can pay more attention to the environment and notice things, and it also serves to make the city/map feel larger. As it is, the driving in GTA:V is so dumbed-down and easy that I just want to get it over with so I end up driving pretty fast or getting a taxi to wherever I need to go and I find myself driving right past things that I don't even notice and that I would otherwise stop and explore.

    I'm a person who plays racing games and spent hours upon hours in GTA IV driving around and pulling into random alleys and exploring, taking trucks rock climbing in the few spots where it was possible, taking extra trips across the map to pick up a body armour that was way out of my way, just cruising in cars I liked, trying out cars I don't normally drive, etc.

    In GTA V I was looking forward to doing all of those things, but as it is now I just don't care. The driving is too crap to enjoy just cruising around pointlessly, you can't take trucks rock climbing anymore and the whole off-road thing n driving in general is cheapened by the crap suspension model, lack of weight/inertia and the ability to adjust your car mid-air, driving long distances is boring, cruising doesn't feel or look good anymore with the joke physic model. Customising cars isn't worth much if they aren't fun to drive, and all the cars pretty much drive the same in their relative groups (every sedan feels pretty much the same, every super car feels the same, etc). It has changed it from a game I can see myself playing until the next one to another game that goes in the stack once I beat the story.

    What makes it even more sad is that pretty much everything else is a big improvement. Driving ties all of it together though. Cars and driving are MAJOR parts to the game, pretty much every mission requires travel, both to the mission and during the mission, and lots of side-activities require it as well. And it just leaves alot to be desired imo. Defo lacks character. I think R*have gone too far in the opposite direction with V's base physics model. They toned down Euphoria far to much.

    Non-existent might've of been the wrong word(though when in comparison to IV it is very watered down). I mean in V you can be going at 100 and crash yet merely have a scratch and drive away like nothing happened(The high speed wrecks are extremely weak in general).. It seems Car deformation takes waaaay to long to show.

    The car damage has been changed so much so, you are for thee most part basically a tank, indescructable while moving as along you hold the accelerator down you don't have to think etc. Just point the stick and go the game doesn't punish you at all. There's no challenge to it, tis boringly easy. Not fun. Only a braindead casual instant-gratification idiot would welcome such changes that clearly are evident to anyone who has an understanding.
