  • Games with Gold adds Hand of Fate and Styx in February

  • Darth_Flibble 27/01/2016

    Styx is ok, unpolished, overstays its welcome and the combat is crap as it forces you to be extra stealthy. But it tries hard, worth a play if you like stealth. Creating clones and putting them in chests or cupboards and they would kill any enemies was a nice feature. Reply -1
  • Resident Evil shooter Umbrella Corps slated for May

    @bad09

    The trouble is the "classic fans" are not getting new games that are in the S.H. type gameplay. I don't think the devs in Japan know how to make a decent res evil game

  • Is it time for a PS4 SSD upgrade?

  • Darth_Flibble 24/01/2016

    @Fourfoldroot

    Its a start at least! Some of the prices look the same as PSN. Hopefully more shops will sell them and have a market with choice

    As it was mentioned, XBL and PSN need ways to buy download codes for games, dlc etc from various places so you are not forced to buy only from PSN or XB store. Publishers and some developers love the idea of monopoly on pricing, even games that are download only rarely drop in price even if they are old Reply 0
  • Assetto Corsa is about to bring one of the finest handling models to console

  • Darth_Flibble 20/01/2016

    Very interested in this game, I'm really enjoying Forza horizon 2 (but thats more arcadey) but found Forza 6 dull near the end. As for project cars, horribly broken and the developers (mainly the studio head) are people I don't want to support for buying their game Reply -1
  • Resident Evil Zero review

  • Darth_Flibble 19/01/2016

    From IGN
    The Resident Evil remake is actually one of my favorites of the series too. But it didn't sell very well,” Mikami said. “Maybe there weren't many people ready to accept that. Because of the reaction to the Resident Evil remake, I decided to work more action into Resident Evil 4. Resident Evil 4 would have been a more scary, horror-focused game if the remake had sold well.”

    That all came out of the commercial failure of the Resident Evil remake.And then of course Resident Evil 4 sold really well.
    Because the remake was only on the GC at the time (which had the lowest share of gamers on the console iirc) and RE4 was on cube and ps2 and the ps2 had massive audience.

    I really wish there was more survival horror games like this game, there is hardly anything in this genre (Evil within had a few good chapters but mostly had loads of shitty designed chapters) Real shame. Then you have RE6, a real piece of crap trying to please everyone but failed badly (and the people who love RE6 are so fucking angry! to this day I still don't get why they liked about it as they just get so angry!)

    You think there would be some studio making a modest survival horror, its either a "running away horror game" or some derp shooter

  • Ellie Gibson on: Manual Stimulation

  • Darth_Flibble 09/01/2016

    I miss manuals in games, like others: I use to read through the manual on the way home before playing the game and there was that "new manual smell" Now the box is filled with shit like pre-order the crappy season pass or a pointless health safety leaflet. At least a few games have 1 page piece of paper having the controls as its handy if you go back to the game after a break.(some games have the layout in the pause menu option but some can't be arsed)

    Some say tutorials replaced the game manual but most are painful as it teaches you basic things like Press B to crouch, press up to move forward etc, it gets in the way of playing the game

  • Halo 5, Tomb Raider, Rare Replay discounted in biggest ever Xbox sale

  • Darth_Flibble 22/12/2015

    I see people blaming retailers again but you look at content that is only available via each console store, the prices are kept high as publishers control the prices.

    A friend wanted to buy fallout new vegas DLC recently and its same price on XBL now it was when released in 2011. Despite some advantages to downloading like game sharing, there needs to be more ways to buy from the store eg have retailers selling DLC codes, game codes etc I've seen cdkeys selling cheap game codes but it seems to be codes that were in bundles as tends to be AC unity, last of us to name 2

  • Face-Off: Gravity Rush Remastered on PS4

  • Darth_Flibble 19/12/2015

    Its one remaster I have no problems with as its great remaster from the vita to PS4 and also the audience for the game was small on the vita. On ps4 it has much bigger audience and GR2 is coming to ps4, so it should help the sales of the new game

    Its when I see lazy ports of recent games like saints row4, prototype etc and simpletons calling them remasters or "HDREMAKES!!!" thats when I think they are shit

  • Watch: Are we getting tired of re-releases?

  • Darth_Flibble 22/11/2015

    The dvd/bluray analogy is very poor as I can play all my dvd on bluray player and upscaling a film does not stop production of new films

    In theory I don't mind remasters if they are done well but there has been a number that have been crap ports or only a bit of work has been put into. (so often these ports are called HD REMAKES!!! even from game reviewers eg IGN and dickhead dan from GB- when they are no so thing and then some actually believe the game has been remade from the scratch!)

    In some ways these remasters/ports do stop new games coming out as instead of heavy rain and beyond the money could of been spent on extra staff to help on QD's new game. Or instead of port of old xbox360 game they could of funded shadow complex 2 etc

    People say its fills a game in the schedule but sometimes you might as well play the old games unless this new version is like director's cut of the game eg Metro redux. One example where the new verison is far superior and better to play.

    Its a circle, no games to play to, so they buy these remasters/ports then the companies pump out more as they sell. They shit out games like prototype ports (labeled as remake or remasters by the clueless) and people still buy them. Any criticism is shouted down by the ones that say "fuck off then don't buy it ffs!!!""

    Noticed how angry some get if don't like RE6, played it and hated it (although others make up things in their head that you are lying etc) Had some complete shit stain on another forum go full retard on me because I "dared" to dislike the game!

  • Microtransactions sneak into Forza Motorsport 6

  • Darth_Flibble 17/11/2015

    Once again a company is trying it on with Microtransactions, adding them via patch after reviews seems really underhanded. I played forza 6 and it throws cash at you, so I don't understand why you need them, With forza 5 they had to patch it to fix the game's payment, which says a lot. This shows the publisher will try and push and see what they get away with eg Payday 2. Until there is back lash (or moaning as its called by the fanboy apologists) it will get worse and worse and the idiots will lap it up Reply +3

    Saw the Recommended badge and thought it was a mistake. Not into the games like fans are (use to play them casually) but seen so many comments its only slightly better than last year's mess. Even Giant bombs own "Rasslin" fanboy didn't think this was that good Reply +1
  • The new Need for Speed remembers what's great about the series, but why is it always online?

  • Darth_Flibble 02/11/2015

    While not much is lost as this game seems to be really naff, having online only for every game so the publishers can make people upgrade is shitty future. Any gamer who says "stop moaning" you are part of the problem. Gamers need to be vocal and say this crap has to go and it will be common place. I won't be supporting the game.

    People can say "so what I won't be playing this game in 2 years" but gamers will always play old games (usually if they shove out a crap port thats called HD-remakeremaster!!!!)

  • Watch: When should we review games?

  • Darth_Flibble 24/10/2015

    I would hate to see sites review and score games much later after the developer can put out a 7+ gig to patch the game. It will just make the broken game situation worse. Also sites should never re-score games (non MMO) after for example patch 3. Have a small section of text where major bugs got fixed but it shouldn't change the score or recommendation.

    I agree with the other comments If they're selling it, you should be reviewing it.

    in the link there is a bit about " say EA wanted to sell fifa 16 for £30 but it would piss off retailer as they wanted to sell it for £40-ish"

    One thing, EA would never sell fifa for low amount, if there was no physical media, they can charge what they want (as you see for smaller games (and DLC) that have no disc release). the link is just full of made up views. Also EA tend to charge £60 for downloads of new games, even when the disc is on priced £42 on amazon!

  • Dragon Age: Inquisition - Game of the Year Edition announced

  • Darth_Flibble 23/09/2015

    Recently completed it (then sold it) a lot of the side quests were awful, bad MMO rubbish. The main quest is the only reason I got through it, only a few of the main characters in your team are interesting. Also the combat does not feel tactical like the first game, its more like the 2nd game which was aimed at people who like to smash buttons. I did enjoy the game overall or I would of sold it a lot earlier but a GOTY game, No (sites who gave it a GOTY is amusing, IGN GOTY is not worth the time typing it) Reply +3
  • Don't hold your breath for GTA5 story DLC

  • Darth_Flibble 16/09/2015

    GTA5 online is horrible, its full of the worst COD kids acting like cunts (not bashing CoD by the way).

    I don't get why GTA4 expansion stories didn't sell, it was better than the main story, I suppose all the casuals had moved on from GTA4 the time the DLC was launched. The Ballad of gay tony was the best GTA4 experience (shame the controls have aged badly, there is probably an PC mod that fixes that)

    Its not a remaster, its a port, calling it a remaster is giving too much credit. I usually listen to giantbomb podcast and its annoying them calling games remakes or "hd remaster" as its given false impression of what the game is.

  • Amazon cans trade-ins

  • Darth_Flibble 19/08/2015

    I used the service for ages until I tried to trade in AC: Rogue, I got email saying the disc was unacceptable. Logged in and said the disc was cracked, I thought it got damaged in the post despite packaging it well for posting. Did noticed on the site that you couldn't trade in the game anymore at the time. Got it back and it was in perfect condition, its obvious they just sent it back as they had too many.

    Complained to Amazon with links to pictures and just got the standard "we will look into etc", week goes back and phoned CS and got some complete prick who really didn't give a shit and was complete arse. Sent a shitty email and few hours later got a very nice lady who apologised for the trade in problems and the other CS (promised he will be dealt with) and got £30 credit! (which was about double the trade in value of Rogue)

    Never used Amazon trade in again as CEX is better. The third-party merchant sounds like a bunch of dodgy tossers from what others have said

  • Nintendo employee fired after podcast remarks on localisation, fans

  • Darth_Flibble 16/08/2015

    The things he said about localisation were too general, in my view, to land him in serious trouble but then to publicly mock fans with his "whiny fan boy voice" impression is another matter. I doubt that went down well and irrespective of the truthfulness of it, as a representative of the company, he should have chosen his words a lot more carefully.
    spot on comment by heyzeus (and the bit about Sakurai on the podcast didn't help Chris imo). You can't mock the fanbase even if its true

  • Watch nearly an hour of Assassin's Creed Syndicate

  • Darth_Flibble 18/07/2015

    Watched until they got the figure out, while its an alpha, it would too much work to re-do the combat (it looks like crap still) they can't even copy the Batman free flowing combat still. The capt america game last gen did it better on a lower budget and was a film tie in!.

    Horse carriage racing is awful still, no one really wants. Revelation had small sections of it and they were not very good

    If they re-designed the series I think most gamers would be fine with it, the series really needs to be Assassinating targets, no guns, no gimmicks. The series should be like Hitman blood money, you have a target(s) and individual stages

    That extra credit demo daze video is terrible, blaming gamers for not buying bad games.

  • That Fallout 4 Xbox One plus free Fallout 3 deal needs a pre-order

  • Darth_Flibble 02/07/2015

    If you look at XBLA and PSN games, they were all high priced for ages and only really dropped during sales then went back up. There was no disc to compete against (a few made it on physical media but that was long time after the download release) it meant a game that was year or 2 old could be the same price it was at launch. Same with DLC. Having complete controls means you can do what you want with the price

    Its easy to make up "retailers force companies to charge £15 or £20 more but its not true. I could understand if publishers were trying to sell downloads for £25 and retailers were getting pissed off but publishers know people will pay £60 or even more if it comes with some knocked together DLC

    xbox 1 B/C isn't like 360 B/C despite some trying to point out it is. Hopefully lots more will be added as it sounds much easier way to add games than the 360 method.

    Again people shitting on "old" games but people loved the borderlands handsome collection it was hardly a true remaster, (Gears remaster is much better example of true remaster and another examples are metro redux and last of us) but so many gamers believe crap by games journalists that the game has been HDremakeremaster!!
