  • DakeyrasUK 26/11/2013

    @null Unfortunately for you this article didn't start 24 hrs ago, there was a huge discount yesterday evening.

    130 (reduced from 185) for 3DS XL with Mario Kart bundled. I also got Zelda, and will get the free Mario 3D Land download. 3 games and console for 170!

  • Yes, Gran Turismo 6 has micro-transactions

  • DakeyrasUK 19/11/2013

    I have to say that as such a gaming goliath, such at gran turismo, has introduced micro-transactions I have now lost faith in ever playing a game where bonus content is unlocked for completing aspects of a game.
    This is shit, no two ways about it!

  • 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...

    @TelexStar For the last time, what I said was not meant to offend, some people are reading way too much into it. I was called a troll for my original comment in this thread which I disagreed with, still do, I then proceeded to give a (poor) example under the context of what a real troll comment might look like.

    It was bad judgement on my part, I'm 100% at fault and it doesn't excuse the fact it was still said, I am sorry for any offence caused. I don't care if I get banned, that's not why I'm writing this either. Anyone familiar with my posting history will know I don't deliberately set out to offend people in such ways. There's not much else I can say aside from that, it was poor judgement and a mistake. Truly sorry to those offended.
    I'm not sure why this apology is getting Negged?!

    Someone shows some humility and then people neg away, it can be no reason more than to troll. Get over yourselves.

    @CuttlefishJones No I didn't mean inside the ps4 box, but yes that is an example of design Genius. Thanks for the image!

    I really love opening consoles and seeing how it is all laid out - which I thought was the purpose of an unboxing video... this did not do that.

    Oh well, life goes on!

    Downvote me, but I like to see how the product fits into the box. The design skills of getting everthing into a small space amazes me, reminds me of the Layton puzzles where you have to fit the shapes together. Especially geeky I know, but then I'm posting on a gamng site.

    This dissapointed me as I already knew the contents...

  • Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy review

  • DakeyrasUK 06/11/2013

    Excellent, another sound reason to get myself a 3DS! I played all DS Layton games, loved and completed them all. I was really upset at them jumping ship from DS to 3DS, however, there are now so many games I want on 3DS it easlily is more justifiable than PS4 or XB1!

    Question is, when will I have 200 to get the limited edition Zelda 3ds xl???

  • Eurogamer's Game of the Generation: Super Mario Galaxy

  • DakeyrasUK 01/11/2013

    @BigDannyH Have you never played a game whilst "beeming" all the way through? Hell, has a game never made you smile at all through sheer enjoyment? I know games can make me feel like smiling, doesn't mean anybody is crazy just because they expressed it in a poetic/literary way.

    Very few games have been so much fun to play I can't help but smile as I'm enjoying the experience so much.
    Mario games tend to have this effect on me, Rayman Legends did (apart from the more frustrating levels).

  • DakeyrasUK 30/10/2013

    @asphaltcowboy
    You just said that you agree they are purposefully making what you buy less valuable, that is a perfect example of nickel and diming in my opinion - take a small amount of money off each and every person, make lots for yourself.

  • DakeyrasUK 30/10/2013

    @asphaltcowboy Okay, I get that point and you get mine.
    I'm now confused as to why you are making that point. You agree they are purposefully making the game worth less, so why question how they are "Nickel and dime-ing" in the first place?
    And yeah it is tough shit, doesn't stop that being something for some to be annoyed about.
    Just to be clear I still have all previous AC games, I don't plan on selling AC4, if I did, I would be unimpressed!

  • DakeyrasUK 30/10/2013

    @asphaltcowboy @ajent I'm not suggesting the consumer is owed something.
    I'm mearly explaining how consumers will feel "nickel and dimed". I find that a very acceptable way to feel. Playing a whole game and choosing to sell it is a right (for the consumer) most people agree with. However, making a choice as to whether you experience a whole game and then have less value to it, makes me feel like the initial value of the game is less than it would otherwise be.
    Thus feeling short changed (if only by a small amount).
    To argue against other people feeling that way isn't worth your while, neither is it worth mine to explain further. We disagree, but please accept that some will see less value, whether or not you or myself see it the same way.

    @asphaltcowboy Really? You didn't get my point?
    Firstly, yes obviously once used one will struggle (i.e. won't be able) to sell a game for retail price.
    However, once an online pass has been used, people who are buying the game second hand won't be willing to pay the same for the game as they would if the pass had not been used.
    Still don't believe me? Go to ebay and search for The Last of Us, the versions without the online pass sell for about 5 less than the versions with the pass.
    Reply +2
  • DakeyrasUK 30/10/2013

    @asphaltcowboy Well, if you use your pass, you devalue your own property. so should you choose to sell on the game, it won't sell for the same as a normal AAA game.
    That counts as being Nickel and Dimed for me.

  • Nintendo announces three new Wii U hardware bundles

  • DakeyrasUK 10/10/2013

    I got a wii u on release day last year, I'm happy with it, but could have probably waited until now to get it. Though if I had waited I would have probably skipped ZombiU as the reviews aren't great and that would have been a real shame as I loved it.

    To be honest I still look at the cost of a WiiU and think it is very competitive, right now on Amazon you can get:

    Premium console with Zelda WW - 250
    ZombiU - 11
    Pro Controller - 24
    Rayman Legends - 26

    This total at 311 for a console and 3 superb games. To get a ps4 and one game will cost you an extra 78.

    That money could then be spent on Watchdogs and/or AC4 and/or Batman Origins, equaling a mighty 5 games for the price of a console and 1 game... (I haven't even compared it to XB1 yet either).

    If Zelda isn't your cup of tea, then perhaps you like Lego games. There's a premium bundle for 250 with Lego City and Lego Batman 2, if you wait a week. Or indeed, wait until the Mario and Luigi two game bundle and it becomes an astonishing 6 games for the price of PS4 + 1 game.

    Right now I'm far more likely to be buying lots of games on my wii u than getting a ps4 or xb1 with only one or if I could afford it 2 games.

  • GTA Online: Rockstar ate my gangster

  • DakeyrasUK 08/10/2013

    I'm loving GTA Online, I'm in a crew created by a real life friend with about 7 or 8 other real life friends in and another 20 people who are friends of my friends (who I have played with in other games online).

    I have to admit the free roam is lacking due to the jobs taking you out of the city you are in, but doing any of the activities in party chat with 7 other friends is a blast. The world has a superb propensity for mayhem of the hilarious kind.

    Yes the issues were frustrating over the first few days, I first managed to do the tutorial on Friday night and Saturday I experienced some connection issues, but since then I'm not aware of any issues for me or any in our crew. Not to say others aren't losing progress, but I think that is bar far the minority and those that lose out are rightly annoyed and loud about it - in short not enough praise has been given by those who have had little problem, in my opinion.

    I'm now nearly rank 15 and looking forward to unlocking the Survival jobs, so as not needing the members of my clan who have got to that level to be online (which is a fast increasing number).

  • Witness a comparison between The Wind Waker HD and the original GameCube version

    Personally, I loved the art style of GC version, but also love how good this looks. Perhaps I'd disagree if I had played WW in the last 5-8 yrs!

    This is the first vid that has tempted me to get this game as over digging around my Mum's loft to find my old gamecube!

    6. Link's Awakening (I played this very young on the gameboy and can barely remember it).
    7. Wind waker sequel on DS (can't remember its name)
    8. Skyward Sword - not really fair as I haven't played it yet (don't hate me, I have always intended to play it, but need wii remote plus and haven't justified yet spending 60 for one game!

    Also I'm aware of others I have and haven't played but they be very old and I'm too lazy to google them for the sake of this post!

  • Sony announces PlayStation Vita TV device

  • DakeyrasUK 09/09/2013

    @Kilboy Sure it is to do with bandwidth, but 1080p is a noticeable difference. When I first watched bluray at 1080p instead of 1080i I was in awe.
    Also interlaced images are no good for fast moving scenes like sports and games.
    I would get this to save having to shift a console around, but 60ish is not worth being lazy and having an experience less than the 350 ps4 price offers.

  • DakeyrasUK 09/09/2013

    This has a major flaw for those wishing to access their ps4 in a second room - no 1080p output.

    I was interested until I saw that, I'd rather go to the effort of unplugging the console and moving it for the odd occasion I wish to game in another room.

  • Xbox One to launch with FIFA 14 in Europe - rumour

  • DakeyrasUK 19/08/2013

    @Ajent and I agree with your summary of why "core" gamers don't see the need for kinect.

    I also plan on getting both consoles, but which will be first will be decided upon in about a year. The other will have to wait for several years later (oh no, a back catalogue to catch up on).

    As for the exclusives, I am different to most as I can only think of one exclusive on current gen worth the cost of a console and that is MGS 4. Currently I prefer xb1 exclusives, but none are worth investing 350-430 for. Though the crew, the witcher 3, the division and (of course) MGS V are!

  • DakeyrasUK 19/08/2013

    @JawzPause I'm not sure where you have found Fifa 14 for 40 on ps4, I have found it for 47 on Amazon, so that is a 33 difference - not a lot more when you get the kinect (you may not want it, but 33 isn't really a lot). PS move camera for ps4 is another 54 on Amazon.

    So if you want the added features of the camera and fifa 14, Xb1 now offers better value than ps4.

    I'm still undecided on which console I prefer...

  • Hoarding at the end of the world

  • DakeyrasUK 31/07/2013

    @GreyBeard Good point point about the lack of options available when trying to not use weapons. However, I found this to add tension to the first half of the game as I made sure I stealthed where ever possible. But as I started to leave resources behind as I didn't have room for them, the options increased and I enjoyed playing around with various ways to take out my enemies. The only problem to this was it then became a much easier game.

    The author isn't trying to slag off the game, he is pointing out the impossibility the developers face with this idea of a game. You can't remain true to the idea whilst keeping it fun for as many people as possible (something you have to do at the top of the develepment world).

  • DakeyrasUK 31/07/2013

    I have to agree with pretty much 100% of the article. I really enjoyed the game, but not due to the gameplay, but due to the story.
    I played through on normal (something I do with all games - if I enjoy it enough I'll go for Hard mode after). I found I had an abundance of materials, I can only assume those that did not opted much more for the guns blazing approach or perhaps didn't search everywhere as much I did (not that I profess to have found everything - I completed the game with 110-115 collectibles out of the 140ish total). Personally I was all rambo only at the hospital at the end of the game.

    As I said I still really enjoyed the experience, but I have now lent it to a friend and will probably sell it when I get it back rather than play it a second time - perhaps I'll try the survival mode (if that is just the same as normal with less materials). This game was not however survival horror like the resident evil code name veronica (the one I found hardest for a lack of resources of the early ones). I even found ZombiU had a greater scarcity of resources - due to when dieing you had to fight for all your equip with very limited supplies and if you failed (as I did twice) you lose everything you had thus far collected.

  • Aliens: Colonial Marines to get new campaign DLC

  • DakeyrasUK 24/07/2013

    Aliens is my favourite film of all time and I was so hyped for this I preordered it for WiiU (supposed to be the best version). When the game was released and I was thinking "damn I can't wait for wii u version, should get ps3 or 360?", the reviews saved me!!! That's the happiest I've been owning a Wii U since... (not a monster hunter fan).

    I am still gutted about this game, I really want a good Aliens game. At least they didn't get my money, why the hell would anyone purchase the dlc????

  • Microsoft reverses position on Xbox One DRM

  • DakeyrasUK 20/06/2013

    So now the most obvious difference is release price and contents. I'm happy to spend an extra 80 for the kinect as Illumiroom is something I'm very interested in.

    Xb180 doesnt have a headset though, but I am much more inclined towards the controller than the ps4 controller.

    That said ps4 does have headset, doesn't enforce camera purchase, it has a slightly cheaper online pass.

    For me this is a very close run thing. I'm not concerning myself with which company "cares" more about gamers, because I have no brand loyalty or am I naive enough to believe these companies marketing technique isn't to get us to think they care.

    It will, as it should, come down to the games available. At the moment I'm only interested (enough to spend hundreds of pounds on a console to play) multiplatform titles.

    So in short, I'm now far from decided.

  • DakeyrasUK 11/06/2013

    Wow, where's the attack on the sony exclusives? For me ubisoft stole the show the division, watchdogs, rayman, ac4, southpark and the crew!!!. Sony harped on about games games games. Then offered very little in ways of big bidget exclusives, infamous and the sorcerer got me interested. How did sony win my approval, with price and lack of drm.

    At first i was all, ps4 kills xbone!!! But the more i think about it, that extra 80 gets, me smart glass gameplay and kinect gameplay. For someone harping on about the lack of same old rope, you managed to miss that.

    Another point, quantum break is clearly something very different as is spark. Other games rely on same old formulae yes, but they look fun.

    I hate the drm policy of microsoft, but i generally buy games new, The always online confuses me, but my 360 and ps3 are always connected now, have been for years.

    When i think purely about games, xbone has - quantum, ryse, spark, dead rising that interest me. Ps4 has the sorcerer and infamous 2.

    If ff15 is exclusive then that is a big pull for me! If it is i wonder why they didnt say so?

  • Final Fantasy 7 retrospective

  • DakeyrasUK 03/06/2013

    Personally I disagree with the article. For me the story was so much more than about the death of Aeris. What i loved was the Jenova cloning project, how cloud being in soldier was all a lie and Sephiroth being such a cool bad guy (so pissed off with his ecistence he want to destroy everything).


    As for it not being a game to replay? I must have played this half a dozen times. My first attempt as a 12 yr old i got stuck at demon gate towards the end of disc one. I started again and completed the game, now fully versed at the games search and fight as much as possible. I completed it a second time, but doing all the secret stuff i found out about as gamefaqs became known to me after ff8. I then played ff7 again after ff x. And again on my pc when at uni and again on my psp a couple of yrs ago.

    Strangely however, I preferred the game mechanics of ffviii and the fantasy setting of ffix. So to say ffvii killed squarsoft i cant agree with either, for me what killed the company was the merger and loss of staff who have since made the best rpg in many a year in xenoblade chronicles!
