  • Metal Gear Solid 5's cardboard box gets some peculiar new features

  • DakeyrasUK 12/08/2014

    Though I agree that this detracts from the realism of the game world, I don't agree with that being bad thing.

    Metal Gear Solid games have always had a self deprecating/jokey side to remind us all not to take it too seriously despite the adult themes of the plot.

    As for being degrading to women, I agree that some will find it (justifiably) offensive, I prefer to look at it as a cartoon mocking men lust and desires.

  • EA Access gives players access to triple-A games for $5 a month

  • DakeyrasUK 30/07/2014

    To be honest, this represents good value for money for those that like EA games and parents who can't afford the latest games for their children.

    However, I fear it being a way to transition to digital only games and the end of the consumers owning the games they play. It may take several years to achieve, but for that reason I shall not be subscribing.

  • Digital Foundry vs The Last of Us Remastered

  • DakeyrasUK 28/07/2014

    Just watched the 3GB video on my laptop connected to my hd tv. It looks great, no denying that and at 60fps it is very smooth.

    It makes me wish that all next gen games were 1080p and 60 fps, and to achieve this developers would scale back the "next gen" graphical processes that are seemingly the reason for games not being able to have 1080p 60 fps.

  • Speedrunner sets new world records for Ocarina of Time in 18.10

  • DakeyrasUK 23/07/2014

    I appreciate the precision involved in getting to the end game of Ocarina of time so quickly, but I'm a purest and to me he has cheated his way to completing the game in 18:10. I get that the argument is that if it was in the game on release blah blah blah, but ask the developers if they would rather those bugs never existed...

    If he found all these bugs himself I guess he deserves credit, but let's not get carried away, he pushed a few buttons in a correct sequence for no more than a few minutes at a time - something he has probably spent many hours to achieve.

    I'm more impressed by people getting 100% on Guitar Hero...

  • Sony: PS4 targeting Wii owners who skipped PS3 and Xbox 360

  • DakeyrasUK 15/07/2014

    Another thing that irks me about this article is the idea of needing remasters of ps3 games. As has been mentioned ps now should be all that is needed. Or, how about releasing a console that is backwards compatible? Nintendo seem to manage it just fine.

    Missed the Wii as well as the 360 and ps3? Well which console plays the most games? That's right the WiiU with its entire Wii catalogue.

    I'd much rather developers were spending their time on new games than rather than games of 5 years ago, let alone last year! I'm sure more people who missed the ps3 would buy a ps4 if it played ps3 games. I know it would be the difference between me getting one and my current plan of saving 700 to get a new gaming pc!

  • Why Xbox One's ambitious media strategy failed

  • DakeyrasUK 17/05/2014

    @chucklepie That make sense and is what I expect to happen (though not at first), but then that isn't really an advantage for Microsoft.

    When shops are selling you product well below RRP you have a problem, just ask Nintendo. I love the WiiU, not because it is particularly great, but because it has unique exclusives. Microsoft needs this if it is to prove to compete with Sony.

    It's a shame, seems to me SOny are going to be the run away winners this gen, not that I have an issue with Sony - I just don't want any run away winners (stifles innovation).

    I don't know why anyone would buy XB1 without kinect at the moment, go to Amazon and XB1 (without kinect) is 349 and with Titanfall and Kinect it is 389. 40 for Titanfall and Kinect.

    If you aren't interested in Titanfall, then sell it for 35 on ebay, you now have bought the 349 console and spent an extra 5 on Kinect.

    Don't think Kinect is worth 5? Then sell it on ebay for 35, you now have bought an XB1 for 315.

    In short, I don't see how Microsoft's Kinectless XB1 will drive sales up. To me it advertises a lack of vision to the consumer who are already fairly unimpressed.

  • Local multiplayer is gaming's holy grail

  • DakeyrasUK 10/05/2014

    Superb article, explains exactly how I feel!

    Nothing has ever beaten playing 4 player split screen Goldeneye, with the no radar cheat enabled and sitting around the tv with a dividing screen down the middle, playing 2 v 2!

    Since then, N+ on the 360 has had some great local multiplayer times, but that is about it on non nintendo consoles for me. Mario kart is of course always there (I cannot wait for MK8 after reading this now), Monkey ball, Smash Bros and Boomblox are some of the greats Nintendo has given us on their consoles.

    Just a shame my closest real life friends are much more into spending their gaming time playing Titanfall, BF4 and COD online together....

  • Watch us complete Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes in just 10 minutes

  • DakeyrasUK 18/03/2014

    To me it is systematic of the down grading of value of games these days. Many years ago when you bought a game it contained everything and (usually) it worked. Demo's came with magazines for free, extra clothes/outfits/characters could be unlocked through cheats or achievements.

    Then games started to release DLC content quite a while after release, this prompted DLC to become released sooner (i.e. what should have been in the full game but to meet deadlines or bring forward release dates was left out). Extra outfits then became DLC, some free some at a premium...

    Then, the studios and publishers really started to take the piss, releasing games unfinished, but sold as complete. Through, updates of the subsequent weeks and months they finished the game.

    Now, it appears a transition to buying part games is occurring, Ground Zeroes is exactly like the Tanker on MGS2, with filler missions in the same sandbox bolted on completion.

    At least with Steam early access, you buy the full game and it is released later for no extra charge.

    I wouldn't mind paying 50 for this if it also included a voucher to pick up phantom pain for a fiver...

    In the end I will thoroughly enjoy this in around 11 months time when I buy it second hand shortly before The Phantom Pain is released!

  • DakeyrasUK 06/01/2014

    As some others have said, after playing Mario kart Wii I became a little disinterested in this latest incarnation.

    But since getting myself a 3DS xl with mario kart 7, I have to admit to being much interested now. MK7 is a superb Mario Kart that has reintroduced me to the fun that Mario kart racing is compared to other racing games like Forza and GT have.

    Am now very much looking forward to this!

  • Eurogamer Readers' Top 50 Games of 2013

  • DakeyrasUK 31/12/2013

    What a top 5! I have played all but Bioshock Infinite (mainly due to having not played the previous games).

    I can't (nor feel a need to) complain about the ordering of the games. I do have one observation to make to compare this list to yesterdays Eurogamer's GOTY. It says at the top TLOU won by quite a margin.

    1. That is a very impressive feat that can't be taken away from the game. It has sold 3.4 million copies (who knows how many digital sale, but probably less than 5 mil total).

    Compare that with the lists no.2, which has 28.1 million sales (again, not including digital sales) and I'm amazed that TLOU has managed to come out on top. at least 23-25 million people have played GTA V that haven't played TLOU, yet it came second.

    Both are great games, played by a large numbers of people - meaning that most who have played them will have them in their top 5.

    2. Mario on the other hand has got to number 5 with only having a fraction of the players (1.02 million total sales) GTA V has (no fault of the game or any reason to consider the game any worse) and a third to a quarter of the player base of TLOU.

    So, to conclude TLOU and Mario are both adored by those that have played them (I know I did), but they are very different games filling a very different role in gaming. We are lucky to have two such games in one year. It's just a shame so many dismiss one based on perceived imagery.

    For the record, my GOTY was probably Rayman Legends, followed by the 3 discussed above (in a slightly different order) with either Tomb Raider or LoZ:ALBW making the top 5!

    @simper Yes he is, doesn't mean I have to like it. I'm not upset at playing as characters who kill - hell in GTA I sacrificed a couple to the cult as Trevor!

    The real problem for me is it doesn't tie in with (my interpretation of) the rest of the game. I found myself playing as a dick, then he changed and I started enjoying playing as him, then at the end it ignored all the change - left me feeling like those experiences didn't matter.

    If it was a hollywood film it would have critics down voting the story as being disjointed and/or independent of the conclusion.

    I really enjoyed the story of TLOU, it was beautifully done, excellently shot and acted etc. As for the gameplay I found it repetitive and unimaginative. I still found it fun to play and enjoyed it, but to me it has been, by some, massively over hyped.

    Game of a generation? AC2, Skyrim, Deus Ex HR, Batman (AA or AC) all had far superior gameplay mechanics and brought something new to the table. TLOU took the techinical no how of the PS3 and made a glowing beacon. For me the game can only be best if you typically play FPS games or action adventure games.

    Maybe I'm still upset that despite enjoying the story, when I play a game I don't want to be a douche and I wasn't able to choose who Joel was, and I had to play as a selfish tit (as it turned out), even though I experienced (throughout the game) that he was moving on and dealing with his loss. To me, the ending took away all character development.

    Very much looking forward to playing this! I played the entire series this summer after the telltale humble bundle had this and lots of other tell tale games. Loved it as much as I love the show.

    I will probably wait until the entire series is released before playing it, not sure I can take waiting for episodes to be released at the same time as waiting for the series to resume!

    I like to experience it all at my own pace!

  • In praise of early adopters

  • DakeyrasUK 07/12/2013

    Personally I'm annoyed with the early adopters I know. My friends and myself would game online using xbox 360 (our goup is about 10-15 strong - made up of real life friends and friends of friends, only a couple of internet only friends), now 3 of the more prominent members have bought XB1s.

    My problem is I am very underwhelmed by both consoles, I lean towards XB1, but then remember its cost and read its sub-performance in cross gen games. I then lean towards Ps4 but then think about the controller and how awful my PS3 PSN experience has been.

    My intention is to get one of these consoles when The Division arrives, as that is the only generation exclusive title I'm excited about. However, that game is primarily about playing online with friends...

    Which brings me to my point about early adopters. It would appear that they have already made my decision (as to which console I should get) for me. I want to play the best games and I want to play online with real life friends. Being an early adopter, means you cannot be sure your choice is right.

    So I am now faced with the prospect of shelling out for XB1 late 2014, whilst not being particularly impressed with how the hardware is performing...

    In short, early adopters are great as long as they are not my real life friends!

    In the past few days, I could have got 3DS XL for 130 with Mario Kart and Super Mario 3D land, and, A Wii U for 200 with Rayman Legends and Lego City.

    That's 170 cheaper than this no game bundle. Money that could be spent on a very good vita bundle. i.e Why spend 500 on new consoles and have no games, when you could spend 500 on new consoles and have loads of games?

  • 72 Blockbuster stores to close in the UK

  • DakeyrasUK 18/11/2013

    Bad news for those that have lost their jobs.

    From a business point of view, I'm glad. 10-20 years ago Blockbuster destroyed he independent video rental business (much like Wetherspoons is doing to pubs). Now, Sky Movies, Amazon's Lovefilm and Netflix have made renting physical media all but a thing of the past - with exception to Lovefilm's delivery model).

    In short it is just a case of one corporation not able to compete, despite having every advantage going there way at the birth of the internet. Those that have lost your jobs, blame the execs of the company for not being up to speed with becoming digital. I know people in my local store that blame people shopping on Amazon...
