  • Nintendo confirms Switch launch lineup of games

  • DakeyrasUK 13/01/2017

    Hang on? XC2 is coming out this year? Ok now I want this console sooner.

    Zelda, xc2, mario, rime, i am setsuna are all games i would want on it for sure.

    Granted 3 of those i could experience on consoles i already own, but i do want xc2 and mario day 1. So why wait fo the huge console expense? Only going to save 30 at most on an xmas deal and 30 quid is worth experiencing those other 3 games on the portable switch.

    I was feeling glum following the lacklustre reveal, now feeling more excited. But damn it is expensive...

  • Nintendo's precarious reveal runs risk of Switching off fans

  • DakeyrasUK 13/01/2017

    My main issue isn't with lack of 3rd party games. Nintendo are the only hardware manufacturers I particularly care for the exclusives. I have Forza Horizon 3 and it is good, but I'm happier playing Project Cars and I have Uncharted 4, but it was given to me at Christmas and I am yet to start it (ok FFXV has hogged my time), and I am more interested in getting Tomb Raider completed or Witcher 2 (never played it on the 360) done due to the xb1s backward compatability (only got the xb1 at xmas also).

    So I will get this console, but probably not at launch. Will wait to see what xmas deals there are for it when Mario Odyssey is released (assuming it doesn't get delayed).

    But yeah, the joy con price is ridiculous and I doubt I'll be buying an extra set. Instead it will be a wishlist addition!

    Tis a shame, I really wanted to play Breath of the Wild out and about. But when I have a WiiU version on order for £40, why would I pay another £280 now for that extra perk?

    So definitely need a switch for mario odyssey, xenoblade chronicles 2 and all nintendo 10/10s. But yeah, they have not convinced me 3rd party support will be anything different... from the wiiu...
    So my question is how well will Zelda run on the wiiu and can I therefore wait until xmas deals to get a switch with mario odyssey?

  • 2016: A year in review

  • DakeyrasUK 28/12/2016

    Cant say that the year 2016 will be much remembered by me. Though thanks to loved ones I will soon have experienced watchdogs 2 and uncharted 4!

    I completelt agree that the Witness was the highlight. Not sure why it took me until september/october to get it!

    On with 2017, i need me this Breath of the wild game. Oh and some south park!

  • Editor's blog: Merry Christmas!

  • DakeyrasUK 22/12/2016

    Happy christmas Eurogamers. Though i do dislike this period (not christmas, low eurogamer news days). Makes me feel stupid each of the 10 daily times i load the front page to see if any thing cool has been announced/teased/reviewed etc. Then i realise I do so normally....

    Anyway, I anticipate much more ffxv play. As im due to open an xb1s on sunday i'll probably fire up some fifa for the first time in years and zoom about in some cool cars in forza horizon 3.

    Enjoy your holidays we have earned them!

  • Eurogamer reader's top 50 games of 2016 voting

    1. The Witness
    2. W3 Blood and Wine
    3. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
    4. FFXV
    5. Rise of the Tomb Raider (PS4)

    These are my favourite 5 of the year, but there is a hell of lot I am still to play. Dishonoured 2, Watchdogs 2, Uncharted 4 are the ones I somewhat expect to replace entries 3-5 of my top 5.

    Honestly don't see any other game getting near the top 2 though.

  • Ellie is the lead character in The Last of Us Part 2

  • DakeyrasUK 04/12/2016

    It is an unpopular opinion, I know. But for me the ending did show Joel to be a dick. Either that or ND decide to ignore all his character development throughout the game and return him to being the broken man he started the game as.

    I played through the game shortly (3 months) after the loss of my baby boy and loved the journey of joel's recovery. But the end sort of suggested to me that he didnt ever get over his daughters death and to the hell of humanity for it. Left me feeling pretty raw...

    Will give this a go for sure as the story telling of the first had me about as hooked as any game ever has!

    Must have played through this game 4 or 5 times but now not for at least 15 years. Will be changing that next year!

  • The Wii U a failure? Far from it

  • DakeyrasUK 04/11/2016

    Lets ignore the console for a second and just consider the games it plays.

    Zombiu, mario 3d land, mk8, smash bros wiiu, splatoon, bayonetta 2, lego city, xenoblade chronicles x, captain toad and super mario maker are all games that every person who is a fan of gaming a variety of genres should own and play.

    All of which are (or were) exclusive to this console. Sure it doesnt have a lot the big 3rd party games. Games such as witcher 3, rise if the tomb raider, shadow of mordor, deus ex md, uncharted 4, until dawn, mgs v, broken sword, life is strange are the games (admittedly this is so far) id miss if i only had a wiiu.

    So only having a ps4 would leave me missing 10 games vs a current 9 on ps4.

    In short, i dont regret purchasing a wiiu by a long shot.

    The number 1 game of the last few years (witcher 3) was not on wiiu so if i could only choose 1 console in hindsight of my experiences im left not knowing how i would choose at this moment in time.

    @moroboshi I read that you dont watch tv on telephones.

    I said andoird devices or apple device. Tablets exist too. Also i have no idea how apple tv works - i would have thought it has access to the app store, now i guess not...

    Also, who calls smartphones telephones? They are just a little more than that. Probably one the least used functions on my mobile is the telephone (internet in my pocket, gps device, instant messaging, watching short programmes (like southpark or go 8 bit where ever and whenever i choose) all are done more than i make phone calls.

    I could be wrong but it comss across (when you call the telephones) as you be derisory of those that watch stuff on them.

  • Finally, Mario comes to iPhone

  • DakeyrasUK 08/09/2016

    @Gigifusc My issue is the conotation that the game continues until it kills you, as if it just gets trickier and more determined to kill you as you go.

    I have a lot of faith in Nintendo's level design that whilst it is always running it wont be full of cheap tricks to kill you after 30 seconds.

    To call it an endless runner is to liken it to temple run and that has little in the way of level design in comparison to mario levels - something mario maker has made all too clear!

  • DakeyrasUK 07/09/2016

    To those saying it is an endless runner. It isn't. In the video you see mario complete levels by finishing the usual way - jumping onto a flag pole. Reply +5
  • Sony announces PlayStation 4 Pro for November 2016, priced £349

  • DakeyrasUK 07/09/2016

    With more than 40 million people already buying into the ps4 I don't see many of them upgrading anytime soon. What percentage actually have 4k hdr tvs anyway? People will be getting those before they get a ps4 pro.

    And for those yet to get a ps4 of any sort? Are they likely to be flush with cash and own a 4k hdr tv? My guess is not, they will want a cheap ps4 to play the games from this gen as cheap as possible.

    Sure there will be the people who must have the latest and greatest buying into it, just don't see that £350 for slight 1080p enhancements will attract the 90+% of 40 million ps4 owners without a 4k hdr tv.

    How about they released this console in the first place instead of saying buy our top console that will be the pinnacle for 5-7 years and then release a MUCH better console only 3 yrs later.

    I support the fact it is fully backwards compatible for sure.

  • DakeyrasUK 07/09/2016

    So basically, ps4 is no longer the pinnacle console for the players... after only 3 years...

    Feel like I was sold a lie. Fuck paying hundreds of pounds for a few extra 1080p graphical features. Would sooner spend that money on a XB1, 4K TV or nintendo nx...

  • Deus Ex: Mankind Divided tops UK chart but Human Revolution sales were "much stronger"

  • DakeyrasUK 30/08/2016

    Tis a superb game! And to those not buying in protest of microtransactions I say this: Whilst I agree that microtransactions have no place, by not buying the game and reducing sales you run the risk of this kind of game not being made at all in the future.

    I rather go for the, let them see people buy the game and not the MTs approach. If people still buy them, then more fool them. It is not as if the gameplay balance has been upset by there inclusion - they are essentially nickel and diming us should we wish to cheat. Fuck that, but I'd rather enjoy the game!

    @iconld Yep, i downloaded a south park voice pack and had my own Southpark team of worms!

    As a 14/15 yr old having my worms say "oh my god, they killed Kenny" " you bastards" when ever stan, kyle, kenny etc. died was hilarious!

  • The Witcher 3 is one of the best war games there's ever been

  • DakeyrasUK 28/08/2016

    A thoroughly enjoyable read! Also have to confess to never having considered the fairly obvious Yojimbo links! Thanks for the enlightenment.

    I really do love this game. Have now played main game+dlc 1 (on normal difficulty) and new game plus + dlc 2 (on deathmarch difficulty). It really has made playing other rpg fantasy games difficult.

    Though not fantasy, I couldn't get into Fallout 4 at all due to the dialogue...

    With this game I was truly spoiled!

    Hmmm, whilst I am. Completely against MT in full games, I played for around 10-12 hrs yesterday and didn't realise I could buy anything with real world cash...

    If it was made clear that the preorder bonuses were 1 use free bonus items then there would be little to complain about as we are free to not buy the extras. That said, it is blatant monetising of what used to be called cheat codes...

  • Sonic boom: Ellie Gibson on nostalgia, novelty, and that 9/10

  • DakeyrasUK 06/08/2016

    I have to confess to never really being much of a sonic fan. The games were fast paced platformers with an occasional boss battle. Nothing truly special about them beyond level design for fast traversal.

    Mario platforming had far more to it in terms of content and level design. So why have we waited so long for a good sonic game? Well cos we were kids back then only with a megadrive or snes so we loved sonic as it was the great rival to mario, i.e sonic wasn't great but due to immature console war mentality (and now nostalgia) those games rocked.

  • NX is different, and different is Nintendo's best option

  • DakeyrasUK 28/07/2016

    I more interested in launch games than hardware specs. With the dirge in support for WiiU I really hope they haven used that time well and as such have a lot of first party announcements for the first 6-9 months of the nx!

    Other than Zelda BotW I hope they have at least another 2 stellar games lined up. A new Metroid Prime and 3D Mario would be awesome enough to get me to be a day 1 buyer.

    If not as a WiiU owner I'll get Zelda on that console -have damned well waited long enough! Unless they also let me move across to the nx with some form of backwards compatibility (which seems unlikely due to the lack of a disc drive...)

    two mins later when the case had been removed and I was back on Pokemon Go, its shadow was nowhere to be seen.
