  • Star Wars: Battlefront teaser points to full reveal next month

  • Cobalt_Jackal 27/03/2015

    I agree with ya. IDK why you were negged. 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(theyve 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 too, 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.

    Hey Mr.Braben if your reading... A PS4 version will do nicely thanks. But now this the kind of games i wish console devs were making instead of mindless FPS's or lame indie 2D side-scrollers all the time. So here's hoping for a ps4 version at some future point. Reply +6

  • 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.

  • BioWare boss polls fans on potential Mass Effect Trilogy re-make

  • 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!.

But its EA & DICE LA(aka Danger Close of MOH fame) making the game, so im not hopeful. I think this could more than likely be a pile of shit going by EA's & DICE's track record.

    The UK is well on its way becomong police state too btw. I've talked about this for years, but i believe the powers that be, the global elite... the Bilderberg et tel and thier puppets in governments & corporate fianance/mega international corporations the world over are beggining the end game on society. These people are using 1984 as thier manual, building a Corporatocracy & launching an all out class-war as neo-liberal capitalism eats itself to death n addicted to thier greed, resource stealing, wealth hoarding driven ways mixed with contempt & fear of those same people they need to keep the people down as they shaft them. Here in the UK we live under a corrupt, far-right third reich(certainly in terms of policies. Witness IDS & his murdering of disabled people by the DWP/Atos)like fascist regime who want and are doing the same as the regime in America. Militerising the police & society(witness the soldier worship, its a covert way of softening people up), but militerising the police is just another way of oppressing the people. They're a weapon of the state thus the elite, they're to enforce their agenda of the 1%. Its all connected. We're all potential targets in this war being waged by those physcopaths in the halls & boardrooms, secret rooms of power.

    In time we the people are gonna have do something about it. Stand up together as brother & sisters to fight back and recaim our countries from the respecive suffocation of capitalist greed and a facist police state. The French had the right idea in 1789. Don't be affraid, we will do this. Its all gonna come to ahead sooner rather than later imo. The elites no this, thus the police state. It won't work though, history shows it always blows up in thier faces.

    @xmod3563 This is Ubisoft mind. I mean in AC4 BF the lead protagonist is supposed to be from, born n raised in Swansea in Wales but speaks with a rather posh upper class English accent.

    Though back too FC4 in general not all indians fit that stereotypical look i assume your thinking of(its a vast country with many different ppls and cultures, not just one block of homogenous people). Esp in the presumbly more northeast indian(Whats known as the seven sister states: Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, Tripura and Meghalaya, and the nepal/china border areas etc)located areas this game takes place in seeing as its set in the himalayaas. A more East Asian geographical region anyways, the people refect that. But in general i agree. Accuracy isn't really Ubisoft Montreal's strongpoint.
