  • PlayStation 4 gets 3D Blu-Ray support next week

  • Cobalt_Jackal 24/07/2014

    Don't forget MP3 Playback, custmisable UI
    An actually usable, fully-featured web browser(ya know i didn't think it was possible for them to make an even worse browser than the ps3 one..but i was wrong) etc.

    So many things wrong with the PS4 from a media side. honstely i think its a joke how a console from 7 years ago has more features and can do more than the lastest supposed "next-gen" iteration. Which is just utterly barebones as if its 1999 n not 2014. Sony need to pull thier finger out indeed. Its a fucking embarassment.

  • Tech Analysis: Grand Theft Auto 5 on PS4

  • Cobalt_Jackal 17/06/2014

    They should fix the truly awful, arcade, mario-kart like driving physics whilst there at it too. Not to mention they need to add a lot more content/interaction to the singleplayer mode, because as it stands once you've completed the story there's nothing to do in the world. GTA V its all a bare-bones, style over substance shallow facade really. Reply -2
  • BioWare: Mass Effect 4 will reference original trilogy but remain separate

  • Cobalt_Jackal 11/06/2014


    The planet exploration(if you can even call it that tbh) was terrible in ME1. ME2 with its much more focused, way more varied n detailed hand crafted planet exploration was way better. Sure they were less planets to explore but it was quality over quantity(ME2 is like TESB of the series when compared to ME1 which is ANH). I think it'd be a huge step backward to go back to the barren copy n paste design of ME1's exploration. Which quickly become tedious n repetitive. Not to mention its terribad RPG elements, if your talking about those rpg elements, had no depth, ultimately were pointless, tacked-on & were superfluous. ME4 its just gonna be a re-tread of ME1 that's a bad direction to go if it follows ME1 template.

    But i agree about ME3. The ending in many is just the culmination of a series of things wrong with that game(ie too much auto-dialogue, too many fetch quests, crap writing, cut-down dialogue trees, hardly any side missions, hardly any side missions where we got to land & explore, only 1 hub, the characters misused/treated badly, multiplayer, Priority Earth/Poor missions overall, half-assed & rushed in many places etc etc). EAware eventually turn everything they touch to shit. Im not holding much hope out for ME4 tbh, will have to see if they can get back to the highs of ME2 & ME1, i don't they will.

  • Was there really a Watch Dogs graphics downgrade?

  • Cobalt_Jackal 08/06/2014

  • Mass Effect 2 retrospective

  • Cobalt_Jackal 02/06/2014

    Agreed ME's musical scores was argubly one of the few things that remained at a truly superb level throughout the entire series. Jack Wall, Sam Hulick, Christopher Lennertz, Sascha Dikiciyan & Cris Velasco all did a fantastic job of bringing this awesome universe to life in audio form. Without the music alot of that atmosphere & what makes Mass Effect, mass effect would've been lost imo. That's how good the music was. It enhanced the games and they're good for listen by themselves too ^^.

    ME2 was the pinnacle of the series imo(It was good for the same reasons TNG was good. It was the deep characters & their relationships, galactic ethics, the smaller scale yet really compelling stories etc). Simply incredible & up there as one of the greatest games of all time. I loved every minute. Reply +1

    Good to know they didn't do a FROM/Namco on us then(to an extent. I mean we've still been deceived, but just not to the level FROM/Namco did, but both Ubi & Namco companies are now in my bad books, tired of this bait n switch marketing crap they keep pulling). Still though the game ultimately leaves alot to be desired, both graphically & more importantly gameplay wise. Not impressed. Reply -2

  • Cobalt_Jackal 14/05/2014

    LOL 2010 mid-rang shitty laptop/phone tech strikes again...i knew it when said previously...
    2010 mid-range hardware just isn't up to the task/really good enough in 2014 & beyond.
    This is suppose to be *next-gen*...Seriously what a travesty, n what a travesty this gen will turn out to be if this is the standard. I hope this gen last half as long as the previous, cuz i will not be putting up with such shitty underpowered hardware for over 7years. Its clear Both Phony/Microshaft don't want to gives a true next-gen experience but instead just ps3.5 and in 2014 that's simply not good enough anymore.

  • The Witcher 3 may run slightly better on PS4 than Xbox One

  • Cobalt_Jackal 13/05/2014

    Who cares both PS4 & XB1 will both look like respective shite in comparison to the PC anyway. These supposed *next_gen* consoles are anything but. I've yet to be impressed by the *next-gen* graphics. Maybe Witcher 3 will change that for me, though i've my doubts for 2010 mid-range hardware just isn't up to the task/really good enough in 2014 & beyond. Here's hoping im wrong on this one though.

  • Star Wars: Episode VII's cast revealed

  • Cobalt_Jackal 30/04/2014

    I'd say its not just the prequels that were shit. Star Wars decline all started with Return imo. The film was/is absolute gash. Its a terrible film for the most part. And I mean everyone always goes on about the prequels being total crap and they are...but the rot started with Return. The signs were there all along imo. So really in the end your left with two good films(and even then Empire is the one that stands the test of time). In a way most of Star War's 30year movie history hasn't been all that. I doubt this new trilogy will change that.

    But i digress JJ Abrams being at the helm isn't a good thing. I wouldn't get your hopes up. And the reason i say that is because with regard to JJ Abrams just look what he did to ST. His Star Trek films were absolute crap. They were Star Trek in name only and "sci-fi" films for people who don't like actual sci-fi. Yes Star Wars really isn't true sci-fi, so he maybe more suited to it but still he makes movies that are all style over substance. Also don't forget at the executive producer level you have Disney pulling the strings and they're just as bad as Lucas ever was.

    Thus i think its safe to say its gonna be a hollow, shallow, cliche-ridden, numbing, dumb, typical braindead family-friendly Hollywood affair is Star Wars VII.

  • Cobalt_Jackal 27/04/2014

    IDK why people negged you..for your right. The game looked absolutely horrid, defo like a ps2 game. Which was nothing like the playable, ps3 preview demo that FROM/Namco(bunch of scumbag deceivers) showed mere months before the actual release. Truly Dark Souls 2(well the one we got) was a ugly eyesore. Shite graphics in every way.

    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


    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

  • Cobalt_Jackal 26/12/2013

    @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 0

  • 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.
