    This caused so much outrage and almost all of it is from people who's only exposure to the Marvel Universe has been on their TV screen.

    This is not new, or scary, or probably even permanent. Just take a few deep breaths, enjoy the hilarious boob armour and it will all be over soon.

  • What's going on with Microsoft's Xbox One dev kit and launch parity policies?

  • CosmicGypsy 11/07/2014

    You know how there is usually a load of posters who have their association with the games industry confirmed and listed?

    You notice how none of them have commented on here?

    Yeah, that's because this is not a story. They know it, but they have an NDA they don't want to break. The only story here, is that a few Microsoft employees don't fully understand the Xbox One outside of their tiny roll in it.

  • Titanfall reveals its second DLC pack Frontier's Edge

  • CosmicGypsy 09/07/2014

    @Pandy Again, if they hadn't clearly stated that additional DLC would be new maps, then that would be understandable. But we knew we were getting an online FPS with a set number of maps. We knew additional maps would be added through DLC. It was therefore no surprise when they started to release map packs.

    My example (while admittedly weak) indicated that we all got exactly what we paid for and to expect more for free seems unreasonable.

    Now that you've mentioned a horde mode though, I really want one :)

    @Pandy Yep, you were beaten to it and I already responded to say it doesn't really stretch, since you expect an encore from a gig.

    If Developers had been giving out free DLC for years then decided to suddenly start charging for it, then it would make sense. But they didn't, and it doesn't.

    You got what you paid for, and yet you want more. It is indicative of a sense of entitlement I just can't comprehend. I thought Titanfall provided exactly what it I expected but it is entirely possible I just have low standards.

    @LFace I am not sure the metaphor stretches that far. There is an assumption that you would get an encore as part of the show.

    There is no such assumption with Games. Free DLC is incredibly rare.

    @Kami I have nothing but sympathy. I get a horrible feeling in my gut every time I read about a game shutting down, even if I don't play the game. Reply 0
  • CosmicGypsy 08/07/2014

    @Kami A fair and balance response. I am not used to this kind of thing on EG ;)

    It does look like you've had a bad experience, it always seems to be the fans who suffer when an MMO goes to the dogs.

    With regards to the earning of awesome gear, I completely agree with this sentiment. I do however find it very fun to destroy people in PVP who have paid a ton of real money to buy gear for a game they haven't played long enough to be any good at.

    For me, Neverwinter strikes a good balance between Paying to progress either with time, or with $$$'s. It is starting to feel like the game is dying though. Constant special offers are smacking of desperation and I am sure it will reach a point where they start to monetise my enjoyment out of the game.

  • CosmicGypsy 08/07/2014

    @Kami I've never had a problem with them tbh. I am not a heavy MMO player, but I have been happily playing Neverwinter for the last 12 months. The cash shop never felt forced on me.

    FTP is an odd market which nobody has really nailed in my opinion, but almost everyone I see complaining about PW's cash shop are just upset that people are able to buy gear with money faster than they can earn it (this isn't a dig at you, it is just the most common attitude I see in Neverwinter).

    I'm not saying PW are perfect, but personally, I have had a lot of enjoyment out of them, Thousands of hours over the last 12+ months, for less than the RRP of a single console game. The money I DID spend, I spent because I had been playing for over 6 months and thought I should contribute so the devs can maybe keep making the game, or at least feed their families.

    Fuck you Jordan Lee Weaver, 20. Take responsibility for your own actions and for your own life. You ended your last relationship because you were more interested in your game than you were in your girlfriend.

    @Cpt.Hindsight I agree, it's not a huge amount. One of the early negatives is from a specific guy who never has anything nice to say, ever. I won't mention him by name, because he seems to get off on arguing with people who reply to him.

    But yeah, I like the sound of this. If it is done well, the visuals are my last concern.

    Another great example of the "I don't have anything nice to say, so I'll pop onto Eurogamer for a bit" attitude so many of us regulars have come to adore from certain comments contributors. Hows do people maintain such relentless negativity? I'm all for it if it has any level of humour, but most of the time it is just pointless.

    Maybe, instead of pointless negative comments, you should go and have a wank. You could even follow it up with a nice cup of tea. Wouldn't that be lovely?

  • Titanfall update four adds new features, Marked for Death mode

  • CosmicGypsy 26/06/2014

    @slammers I am stuck with a 5 year old 24" Dell monitor right now. 1200P @ 60Hz. I can't justify an upgrade just yet, but it is probably the next thing I will go for. Reply 0
  • CosmicGypsy 25/06/2014

    @WorldScaper I upgraded my 560Ti SLI (which was a stunning setup in it's day) for a GTX 770. After selling the 2 560Ti's, I only had to shell out an extra 40 for the 770. This is why I have a problem with SLI. Even with 2 cards which I know were considered exceptional SLI performers (better than any single 5 series card), it was not a financially sensible solution outside of their first year of release. If money is no object, then it's fine, but I usually see SLI as PC gamer willy waving. It's not always the case. With me, I had a 560Ti and inherited a 2nd one. It seemed crazy not to SLI them, but as soon as I encountered problems and saw the limited performance boosts I opted to just go for the most powerful single card I could afford. The 770 is incredible btw, even with a reference cooler it is a spectacularly good bit of kit. Reply +1
  • CosmicGypsy 25/06/2014

    @George-Roper... Back on topic, did the fan made SLI profile give you any performance boost?

    So long as you keep bringing it up, I'll keep asking :p
    Reply 0
  • CosmicGypsy 25/06/2014

    I'd take 1080P at 144Hz over any 4K screen (which are all limited to 60 Hz). Nothing is getting 4K performance nailed right now so it isn't worth the outlay, I have no idea what you'd need to get stable 60FPS gameplay on 8K screens.

    Why do people have to get so angry on these comments sections? If you have a complaint to make, this is not the place to do it. You might as well go and shout your complaints into the gutter. It's fine to express problems you are having, I just don't understand why there needs to be so much rage.

    Just be nice, provide helpful and informative comments and wherever possible, try to avoid insulting each other.

    @WorldScaper As I have said in the past, if you aren't running 2 780's or 780 Ti's in SLI, there really is no point. You'd be better off selling the 2 cards and buying 1 better card. The performance difference is just not worth all the extra power draw. It does look nice through your windowed PC case, but it is never a good choice for a serious gamer (unless you are at the really top end, as detailed above) Reply 0
  • CosmicGypsy 25/06/2014

    @WorldScaper I believe it is less than desirable on Xbox One. So I assume this is somebody playing on console. I've seen 2 side by-side, and the PC I built for my brother using an FX-6300 and a GTX 560Ti looks better than the Xbox One version. The PC was also cheaper than an Xbox One :p Reply -1
  • CosmicGypsy 25/06/2014

    @WorldScaper Totally agree with all of this. I am not playing it like crazy, but it gets an evening per week of my time and I feel it is money well spent.

    Last Titan standing is a revelation for me. I hated it at first, but now I am more used to the mechanics it feels like a completely different sub-game. Very slow paced, methodical and tactical. I think there is more to Titanfall than initially meets the eye and I am very happy that I bought the Digital Deluxe edition.

    @megatronx Yeah, I just feel Nintendo bring something new to the table. Neither of the other consoles will do anything that my PC won't do. I will be keeping my eyes peeled for a sub 200 Wii U, I regret not already taking the Tesco Direct deal when that was on a few weeks ago. Reply +1

    I consider myself a PC gamer. I usually own 1 console alongside my PC and I have been waiting for a while to take the plunge. The longer I wait, the more tempted I am to go for a Wii U.

    Nothing really impresses me about the other 2.

  • Titanfall update to add two new modes, Titan features

  • CosmicGypsy 13/06/2014

    @man.the.king It makes the whole experience far less horrific for a new player who is not as experienced with the game as you are. If they appease you, the game would be impenetrable for new players. Which would mean it would likely be dead already.

    Personally, I love the 40mm cannon, it is deadly, in every situation.

  • CosmicGypsy 12/06/2014

    @George-Roper Fair enough. It is genuinely shocking how many developers think that SLI/Crossfire should just work without any effort from them. I've worked with a fair few in the past who were under the impression that they could stick an SLI logo on the box without doing the code work required to actually gain any performance.

    I've seen a lot of posts about problems with Source engine and SLI. These problems usually seem to have been resolved so it does seem like Respawn should have done something about his by now. Even if it is a difficulty inherent in the engine, it is clearly not insurmountable.

    I gave up on SLI last year because of problems like this. I sold my 2 560ti's for 80 each and picked up a 770 for 200. That was a rock solid single card performance boost for just 40 :)

    Personally, unless you are at the really top end of the tree running 2 780's or 780Ti's, I just don't think SLI is worth the hassle.

    I don't mean to be dismissive of you though. It does seem really shitty that they seem to be ignoring the issue. I've never worked on a game that didn't have SLI problems, but I've also never worked on a game which failed to get at least some performance boost when 2 cards are paired up.

    @George-Roper I've asked this question every time you have had a little whine about SLI in Titanfall, but have you tried the fan made SLI profile? It apparently works quite well.

    I've posted a link in reply to your comments in the past and you have never commented back to indicate whether you've tried it. SLI profiles should be coming from Nvidia. Respawn will have to do some work, but if Nvidia aren't doing anything about it either then I suspect there is something more to this than just laziness from Respawn.

    @houldendub I really enjoy Last Titan Standing. It's a slower paced and more tactical affair. There always seems to be plenty of others doing the same when I queue for a session too.

    I initially hated the mode as it wasn't what I bought a twitch shooter for, but I now play it quite often. I regularly play with 1 or 2 friends, so it will be nice to have a mode to hit when there are just the 2 of us on.

    @Eldritch You are very matter of fact in your posts. I have a few German friends who speak in a similar fashion. Which is why I asked the question you have avoided answering ;) Reply -1
  • CosmicGypsy 23/05/2014

    @Eldritch That question makes no sense.

    He says Star Wars "has been the single most profound inspiration to my imagination and to my career".

    He does not say that he has never been influenced or inspired by anything else. In fact, the word "most", used in this context would clearly indicate that there have been other influences.

    If you don't mind me asking, is English your first language? I can't tell if your general abruptness in EG comments is a result of your personal character or because of linguistic nuances caused by not speaking in you native tongue.
