  • FIFA 16 features female national teams for first time

  • Cobalt_Jackal 28/05/2015

    @riceNpea "My daughters play competitive football and I've yet to see a good goalie. Pro level isn't much better judging by the last tournament I watched bits of on telly"...

    You don't tell that to your daughters do you?. Or have you?...if so how did they react?.

  • BioWare turns 20 today

  • Cobalt_Jackal 22/05/2015

    How the mighty have fallen :/.
    Its sad to think a company that gave us all time classics & excellent RPG games such as Bulder's Gate, KOTOR, Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2(their best game thy've made imo, and arguably the greatest game of all time. Its certainly up there. Its one of the best science fiction universes ever created too imo)...could have fallen to such low depths. EA have destroyed what was once Bioware. They become a husk, a shell of thier former selves. Bioware is Bioware in name only these days sadly.

    I once had a Giant House Spider(that's its actual name) walk right past my face as i was lying down. Like it was right up close in my face i could see the hairs, eyes, colour marks, the size(i didn't even know spiders in the uk could be that big) etc all in detail. Lets just say i made a noise i didn't know a guy could make XD~. But in games i don't mind spiders much tbh. Reply +2
  • Star Wars: Battlefront will feature 12 multiplayer maps

  • Cobalt_Jackal 05/05/2015

    For (sadly) a MP only game 12 is not enough. Also if there's only 4 planets that means multiple ice/snow(hoth), dessert(tattooine), volcanic-y(sulist) & forrest(endor) maps. Quite monotonous, bland & repetitious in environments. Again sounds like it's gonna get boring fast with such a pathetic lack of variety(Its Star Wars ffs.. where's my Bespin, Corouscant, Deathstar, Nar-Shadaar, Artus Prime, Yavin, Kejim etc). Im not confident for this game. Reply 0
  • Probing the latest Mass Effect 4 leak

  • Cobalt_Jackal 20/04/2015

    Is Ubisoft making this game or what?.

    I mean to me it sounds like a mixture between Dragon Age Inquisition & Assassins's Creed 3 in terms of sidestuff. Sounds like alot of mmo style, checklist-y, grindy bloat n busywork...
    Also I was hoping for a more contained story in which you're not the savior or guide of humanity, but just someone who is important within the pocket of the more personal and contained story within the universe. But people love space jesus stories it seems so I never really had my hopes up.

    Its just i find anything that ends with "....fate of humanity" is an automatic turn off. I understand that this is an RPG, but i wish for once some one would go: "uh, why are we entrusting the future of our planet to this one guy? why can't we vote?" RPG are about making important decisions, but important decisions don't always involve balancing the fate or a race or a planet.

    Lastly i wonder how they'll be generating these hundreds of planets. I'd rather explore a dozen highly detailed areas than a hundred, copy n paste samey ones. Its disappointing that the kodiak shuttle isn't there either, and only 7 crew members..that's not enough imo. Plus more unnecessary multiplayer :(.

  • Star Wars Battlefront is more than just a big budget Battlefield mod

  • Cobalt_Jackal 18/04/2015

    I don't believe them. I mean from my POV...From the details released it just seems like a rush job, lazy cash grab by DICE/EA. Like how can you not have space battles in a Star Wars Battlefront game. I remember how in Battlefront 2 you could fight in space and even board ships to disable the enemies starship from inside etc(shields, engines and more etc). The scale and scope was immense for the time:




    That was 2005, And yet in 2015 we apparently can't have that. What a joke. So much for progress. How can you have a Battefront game without space playing a huge roll?. Battlefront 2 had it, this one should two, there's no justification for not including it. Its laziness, half-assed-ness on DICE/EA's part imo. Not to mention how this will be DLC'ed n "premium packed" up the bum. I called it a whie ago on how all the content we got in the originals would be ripped out & charged for + how the game would be nothing more than a Battlefield re-skin. Plus its MP only(i doubt they charge less for the game though), no prequel era either(why not include both?. Again the previous games had both. Just more stripping back to charge later im sure). What about the seemless space combat to planetary surface combat which Free Radical were working on before they went under, but why can't DICE do something with that?. Anyway im out. Battlefront 3...It could've been something :(. I hope it bombs, this game deserves too.

  • Star Wars: Battlefront has 40-player cap, no campaign

  • Cobalt_Jackal 17/04/2015

    No Galactic conquest single player or space battles then?(how can you not have space battles in a Star Wars Battlefront game. The second game had it over 10 years ago, FFS!) :(. Just MP only... I knew it, this game is nothing but a Battleield 4 re-skin. Im saddened, but not surprised. Im done with this game tbh, that and all the ripoff DLC this will have equals me not buying. I hate where gaming has gone. Reply +5
  • Star Wars Battlefront playable "first on Xbox One"

  • Cobalt_Jackal 14/04/2015

    With regards to star wars: battlefront 3... personallly once i heard it was going to be an fps im concerned it'll nothing more than a Battlefield 4 re-skin. Also knowing EA are behind it i bet we'll get nowhere near as as many maps as we did in Battlefront 1 & esp 2(it'll be charged for in map packs(they've ruined many a game imo)). Plus things like space battles/ship boarding, movie scenarios, more factions for galactic conquest/galactic conquest itself(we'll probably get a shitty, short, highly scripted singleplayer campaign in its place), more classes(previously unlocked as one played) etc...i bet all those things will also be taken from the game and charged for via ripoff, bullshit DLC.

    Im highly spectical. Battlefront 3 doesn't excite me tbh. EA's & DICE/Danger Close's track record has been awful lately. I've gone off the boil, well have to wait n see i guess. But it doesn't look good imo :(.

  • World Bank exec discovers son spent $4500 on FIFA packs

  • Cobalt_Jackal 18/03/2015

    The World Bank are utter scum. They've brought untold death, deprivation & destruction to countless hundreds of millions if not billions of people all over the world/developing world especially. The world bank(and the anhorrent system it reprents)are part of the overall problem not solution to our species biggest struggles. My brothers & sisters imo i think we need to stand up and break free from our chains, remove thier suffocating stranglehold from around the neck of the world.. launch a global movement a revolution against him n his ilk/what he reprents.

    But i feel soooo sorry for this corporate agent of neo-colonialist, enslaver of nations n its 99%'er peoples.. agent of destruction... i feel so sorry for him, NOT!. Idiot, pay attention to what your son is doing next time. Its called responsible parenting.

  • Cobalt_Jackal 31/01/2015

    @thomaslivingston Agreed. I feel the same way about the Elder Scrolls games too. I mean sure these games are fantasy...BUT that fantasy is based around real European Celtic/Early Medieval/Middle Ages history, culture and folklore. America has no part of that, thus american accents jarr and feel out of place in such a setting. I mean could you imagine the LOTR films with US accents?, it just wouldn't work as you noted.

    But with regards to fantasy genre games i often think American accents cheapen them n make it feels tacky, breaks immersion and also like the devs/pubs are half-assing it, like they couldnt be bothered to do it properly/authentically. Plus most of these devs are american & the games are designed with the American market in mind first, everyone else second, so they probaly don't even notice etc~. It just annoys me somewhat. Its not that difficult to get the right accents for such a setting.

  • Student-made Ukip parody game upsets Nigel Farage

  • Cobalt_Jackal 22/12/2014

    Persenally i think as we are a small island nation, we cannot support so many recent eu & non-eu immigrants who come here with all thier cultural baggage & not wanting to intergrate, but live in their own neigbourhoods entirely seperate. Its slowly & gradually leading to the balkanisation of England and an erosion of a shared culture, history & values, plus it puts ever more strain on services/infrastructure, plus it also means lower wages for all due to the cheap surplus of labour(its what the capitalists want, tis one of the many reasons we have to move away from our current neo-liberal capitalism system).

    Now im not a UKIPPER or fan of Farage & his fake man of the people act when he's just as much a part of the establishment & a thatcherite, tory nutter as the rest of them (i've very left wing views on most other issues), but the fact is on immigration he has a point. Its been too many to fast. It has to stop. Its common sense at this point really. Imo i think we need an immigration policy similar to Australia or Japan. Where you can only come here if you are highly qualified & or have skills we need.

  • Grand Theft Auto 5, one year on

  • Cobalt_Jackal 20/11/2014

    Idk bout anyone else, but it really disapppoints me how the visuals have been upgraded but the physics model is exactly the same as last-gen. I mean shooting & driving(esp the driving physics. Every car feels the same) in first person really highlights even more how awful & arcadey the physics are. They're truly crap. The dumbed down, unrealistic physics model breaks the immersion. Ruins the game imo as everything else tries so hard to be realistic, there's alot of atttention to detail but then you get in a car or try to deeper interact with the world and it all falls apart. The illusion is shattered. I just wish they gave us a choice. I find myself taking taxi's everywhere.

    I don't like how there's hardly any enterable buildings/interiors either. Again it makes the world feel like a theme-park, very superficial & souless, it feels all style over substance imo. Im not impressed by this game tbh. Leaves alot to be desired.

  • Cobalt_Jackal 07/11/2014

    (Stolen from redeyesurprise~)

    For a remaster on PS4 i'd like to see the following...
    - All DLC (Pinnacle Station included)
    - 1080p/60fps (or 1080p/30fps but with much more effects, better lighting, just waaaaaaay more detail in the graphics)
    - Higher Resolution textures
    - More NPCs/Enemies on screen
    - Female turians, drell, and vorcha NPCs added to ME1 for consistency
    - More tools/options for creating characters
    - ME1's combat replaced by ME2/3's
    - Correct inconsistent CREATED Shepard facial features when importing from ME2 to ME3
    - Model a consistent DEFAULT FemShep face to match across all three titles or use an actual model similar to how Mark Vanderloo was used for default John Shepard (may I suggest "Antje Traue")
    - All major glitches fixed
    - The option to switch between the original ending, and extended cut for ME3
    - More armour customization options (colors/patterns/etc)
    - Tweak ME1's inventory screen (not drastically, but in the right places)
    - Incorporate newer powers from ME2, and ME3 back into ME1 (biotic charge/tactical cloak/etc)

  • Cobalt_Jackal 07/11/2014

    ME2 sure. I'd be interested in a ME1 remake(perhaps with the combat of 2) as well. 3 not so much(it was a pile of rushed, dumbed down shite, and it wasnt just the ending. Good combat n sound design though). Though if they are gonna remake the whole trilogy then i'd like to see every single piece of DLC included, all three soundtracks thrown in too. Reply 0

  • Grand Theft Auto 5 first-person mode confirmed for PC, PS4, Xbox One

  • Cobalt_Jackal 05/11/2014

    This'll just make the shitty mario kart-esque driving mechanics/physics, non-existant damage model & general dumbed down rubbish physics model all the more apparent. What's the point in playing in this even more immersive POV & having all this extra realistic detail in the surroundings, when the actual game doesn't match that level of realism. I mean GTA is inconsistent in how it handles the world in general. Let me break it down and show you what i mean....

    Your health is low (realistic).
    NPC health is low and can be KO'd by a single punch or knife strike (realistic).
    Running speed is slow (realistic).
    Bicycling speed is slow (realistic).
    The slightest mistake on foot means death.

    And now, we transition to cars(a major aspect of the game):

    Car health is incredibly high and you are basically invincible while moving.
    Car damage takes forever to develop.
    Cars cannot be permanently flipped (you can easily flip them back).
    Cars are basically glued to the ground.
    Cars all have ridiculous acceleration & braking
    Cars they have no suspension/weight/body roll and handle basically the same etc.

    You have to admit there's a disparity here. The transition from hyper-realistic to arcade is instant. And that, to many people/true core gamers(myself included)is problematic.

    Consistency is the answer. I don't believe anyone(myself included) who has played Midnight Club or Saints Row 4 would be complaining about unrealistic physics, because the game is entirely unrealistic. However, this is not the case in GTA: V.

    One moment, you die from taking 3 or 4 bullets from police on foot. The next, you're being chased for half an hour because police can't stop your car no matter their best efforts.

    One moment, you die from being clipped by a car going 20 mph. The next, you're doing 90 degree turns in an 4x4 going full speed.

    I urge everyone to think about this situation. If the game was entirely unrealistic, I don't believe i'd take issue(niether would many who care). But the game is filled with attempts at being realistic heck, look at the activity choices: Tennis, golf, yoga ... etc. Thus it is immersion breaking plain & simple as you are taken from that "realistic" mindset and thrown into a completely unrealistic set of circumstances with no real reasoning as to why. It's as though on-foot gameplay and activities were developed by an entirely different studio than the driving mechanics. So here's hoping they've rectified this on the next-gen versions. If its just the same...Im out!.
