  • Super Castlevania 4 proved the best Dracula games don't have to be scary

  • Darth_Flibble 20/07/2014

    Great game and still is even today no rose tinted glasses here. The music was amazing for a 16bit game and still stands up today. The recent 2d castlevania game was good but it lacked "soul" Something I can't put my finger on Reply 0

  • Codemasters responds to Grid Autosport 2.39 Boost Pack DLC criticism

  • Darth_Flibble 16/07/2014

    You will find the people who don't like this shit DON'T buy it. Its the ones who blindly buy are the ones that makes other companies copy, thats why its in other games (the disease is spreading) If people don't have time to play the game there WAS cheats you could of used. Devs saying "cheat DLC" is for people don't have is corporate shill. What next, paying for easy or normal mode for people don't have time to play! (some would pay that sadly) Also the money does not go to developers like make up, its goes to the publisher's bonus + coke and hookers parties!. ;) Reply 0
  • Codemasters unveils Grid Autosport DLC plan

  • Darth_Flibble 15/07/2014

    Comparing cheats that as sold as DLC to premium rate numbers is laughable as you could still get them from magazines or friends.

    If you don't have time and just buying unlocks, why bother playing the game? Also I don't get the RAGE from people defending this practice.

    Completely agree

    Also the others that say "its just hating to be fashionable" Not its not, the problem is the DLC that is really just cheats/unlocks. Its become "Ok" as some gamers have just blindly accepted it and while others have just shouted down any criticism. If some publishers introduced demos, game endings and game patch as for paid for content they would defend it!

  • The best games of 2014 are actually from 2013 - and that's okay

  • Darth_Flibble 12/07/2014

    Last of us on ps4 isn't the problem, its tomb raider and some shitty ports that got released on 360 and ps3. Games like PoP trilogy, RE4 and silent hill. You had idiots calling these remakes and now "remastered" They ranged from quick port of TR, lazy port of RE4 and RE:CV to cheap and nasty ports of PoP trilogy and silent hill. Reply -2
  • Darth_Flibble 12/07/2014

    I've noticed people call ports, "remakes" its not the same thing. Just wanted to point that out.

    We shouldn't embrace these ports as Sony and MS don't add B/C as "its too difficult" (I know its not easy it some cases) But it allows companies to crap out ports or tiny but improved port for some quick money. One thing I do find funny how some gamers go full retard when B/C is mentioned for consoles then will buy any shit port for full price!

    Jason sounds a bit of a prick about the reviews vs user reviews, its the old way of hating on game reviewers. User reviews tend to be shit, angry fanboy rubbish with a lack of apathy for different views. e.g. anyone who hates the shit A:CM is a "hipster"!

    I like the sniper elite games but they tend to be buggy and ropey at times, the x-ray cam saves the game. They do have a history of making quite a few shit games

  • "See those mountains?"

  • Darth_Flibble 15/06/2014

    The comments on Arkham Asylum vs the other games are spot on, City was just ugly looking city and with tons of collectables tossed around the map that are passed off as extending the game. Which is the same I feel about ubisoft's open worlds, Watch dogs and AC4 were bad, there was like "100 check in" some shitty QR codes to hunt for and AC4 had stop at the tiny island to get a fragment or chest. Open worlds are great when you explore them and you find something hidden or there is a reason for going there. Mafia 2 had giant open world and all the side stuff was sold back to the gamer!

  • Darth_Flibble 08/06/2014

    Deionarra is spot on about the gameplay, the graphics are not the major problem, the gameplay is just mis-mash of other games and non are done very well. (I can understand why some like the invasion bit of jumping into other people's games) but its the single player I'm talking about. At least with the first AC game, it had something we had never seen before with the crowds and the climbing/free running (while not perfect) Watchdogs didn't have any thing new to bring to the table. i read some pathetic fanboy post about how that was bullshit as the info text on people in the world was this "amazing feature" on level to the AC crowds etc etc. The info text was just a gimmick Reply +8
  • Mass Effect 2 retrospective

  • Darth_Flibble 01/06/2014

    Instead of fixing the slightly rough bits of the first game, they throw them in the bin to make it more of a shooter. (ME1 was the perfect mix of RPG and shooting) ME2 shifted into more a corridor shooter. (Also The giant human reaper was terrible end boss).

    The end choice of ME1 had massive impact of the second game but the end choice of 2 makes very little difference (especially when they released some DLC for 2 that shits on the game and if you have not played it, you are scratching your head at the start of 3) (Terrible DLC as well, no team combat, a dumb corridor shooter experience)

  • The familiar fear of The Evil Within

  • Darth_Flibble 27/05/2014

    RE4 was survival horror but with more of shift to action shooter, there was less ammo than most shooters. RE5 and 6 was complete shift to mindless shooting (some of the developers admit they took out puzzles from 5 as people found the ones in 4 too hard as it stopped them playing as a shooter.

    I really hope Evil within is the kick start to AAA SH games and more companies will go back to this genre instead of making tat like Dead space 3

    Its laughable to blame "Bethesda or their QA team" the game was already delayed to the game being a complete mess. It got delayed as was complete state due to bad management (no idea what SD are like now but if the someone people are in charge) God help the studio!

    What ever the score is, its a poor game (terrible graphics and poor game design where it forces you to do things or it makes it harder for you) It deserves a 2 as its shitty cash grab (even the last amazing spiderman game was not this bad)

    Web of shadows and even Shattered Dimensions were worth playing. Then they crapped out Edge of time that was another piece of shit cash grab

    Interesting to hear they had to turn certain friendly AI due to constraints as I swore playing that the NPC with me was not infected. Shame as messed up the game design but its was good game.

    Thought they might of done the Alone in the dark: the new nightmare on dreamcast turns out it was another studio (who also went under) That one was 1000% time better than the 2008 AitD

  • Resolution boosted for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on Xbox One

  • Darth_Flibble 04/05/2014

    People saying the gameplay is more important over the res. are right. While graphics and having it at a decent res is important to some degree, the lazy copied game design is major issue. None of the reviews bring it up. Ghosts was a majorly guilty of really old and simple level design with old AI. People who say if its not broke..... for years and years they have got away with the tired template and its been copied to another games like a virus Reply 0

  • Darth_Flibble 18/03/2014

    Like others, loved the ME1 exploration. Sure it got repetitive, but that was something that needed to be improved upon, not cut stupidly

    Instead of fixing what was wrong, they just culled it and throw it away (but brought it back for the DLC which didn't fix anything and toned it down). The gamers that are happy it got killed off where happy the series got turned into another corridor shooter

    There is nothing wrong with collectibles or achievements, its how they are USED by game developers. Some developer throws a load of shit into a game to pad it out or has run out of time does not mean collectibles should be killed off. They just need to learn how to add them better. Reply 0

    "Cliffy" shouldn't be given any news space as he just ego maniac. Its not like he made Gears single handly, lots of talented people worked on it. The reason gamers still want discs as you can sell them or lend to friends. WB said they are not fixing the game breaking bugs but will sell you DLC they are working on- FUCK OFF- no wonder why gamers don't wanta future where you buy a download and have no rights

    He also mouthed about AAA game budgets and small studio 4A games showed him you can make a AAA game without a 200+ million budget. Also gamers

  • Dungeon Keeper review

  • Darth_Flibble 08/02/2014

    I see the very few apologists in the comments thread again, no one expects the game to be free at "3DS quality" Apologists always say that when publishers put out rip off DLC or free to play games. Simpsons tapped out is pretty poor on the gouging micro payments, it takes the piss out of them then say you can skip the 24 wait to build things and building waterfront tiles is so slow and insulting. Everything is way over priced trying to force idiots to part with their cash, grinding is almost impossible for certain things

    Also you can buy credits in these pay to win games but the to payment is about 69.99! for that you can get a much better game or 2!

  • Resident Evil 4 retrospective

  • Darth_Flibble 02/02/2014

    The RE4 version on 360 and ps3, was ultra lazy considering it was marketed as HD,

    RE4 is one of my favourite games of all time but the shift to more action and idiot publishers made RE5 and 6 into horrible sequels that focuses on the poorer parts of 4. RE5 tries to copy RE4 even at the start but the lacks atmosphere, its all about shooting, add in lack of puzzles and shit AI because of forcing co-op into the series and of course thats why some liked it. RE6 was a clusterfuck

    Hopefully we are returning to games that are more survival horror, limited ammo and more flight than fight (dead space 3 was gun down waves and waves of aliens)

  • The case of the disappearing video games

  • Darth_Flibble 26/01/2014

    I can see more publishers (of mostly sport games) making the single player section online activated to force people to upgrade to the new copy. Leaving loads of titles with no way to play them.

    Some old games are still great, playing SNES games via emulation is the only way you can play these games unless you have a ancient CRT TV still (via scart on HDTV would be nasty) SNES mario kart, zelda and still as great today as they where when the snes was first released.

    RE: the lack of B/C on consoles is partly due to certain gamers, defending Sony and MS leaving it out. The usually reason is "old games are rubbish now deeeerrrp" "keep your old consoles" (despite the fact 360 and ps3 are some of the most broken consoles since the first playstation with the 360 being the worse) Wave some crappy new game with nice graphics like killzone or knack, despite not being as good as some classics, people will happily "play the new hotness" despite it being cack.

    Also these "HD collections" are terrible, Silent hill collection being one of the worst, PoP trilogy was shitty mess, nasty cash grabs as people can't play their old copies on new hardware

    Its a shame they can't make a SH game as amazing as 1 to 3, Homecoming and downpour had little bits of good sections but they felt like copies, trying to be like those games but missing the formula. Homecoming felt like "direct to dvd" sequel and the QTE button bashing bits near the end, No

    SH4 had a great soundtrack but it had too much melee the bugs/monsters and it was retarded you couldn't drop a broken and useless melee weapon, which meant you had to go all the way back to your flat to put into the inventory chest. Also the game got to be unfun when the apartment got cursed every second and you had limited items. Some great ideas although the bit about "last minute it become a SH game is not true iirc, at the planning stages it was not suppose to be SH game.

    SH1, amazing game for the playstation for its time, never seen anything like it for consoles. great atmosphere and never felt too powerful in it. the Lisa moment will always stay with me as a fucked up moment in gaming. Its a shame konami don't give a fuck about its SH games

    Hopefully The Evil within is close to the old SH games as its great to have a game with some weapons but its flight or fight and by fighting you are burning ammo. dead space 3 which turned into Gears of fucking war just because some bed wetters found the past games scary. Horror is being bastardised into just another shooter while that gamer wants for another AAA military shooter.I know there is other horror games

  • First next-gen Hitman details revealed

  • Darth_Flibble 16/01/2014

    Glad they are going back to a "true" hitman game, as Absolution was a bastard, dumb offspring. there was about 3 good levels but the rest were toss linear tunnels escaping from police (and they were awful). Devs or publishers banked on making into more of a shooter, where you can just gun down people for the COD gamer. it worked for some gamers who hate stealth but for others we had to play a crappier game (which is always the way).

  • Founders leave Burnout and NFS: Hot Pursuit studio Criterion

  • Darth_Flibble 03/01/2014

    Sold Rivals as its not that great, while the cop part is ok it runs out of steam and tricks as the same thing again and again. Also the AI is fucking terrible, fellow AI cop cars will be smack into you and even got wrecked by them. The racer side of the game is terrible, cheap AI that gets head start and AI cops that got after you like a nutjob and leaves the other racers alone pretty much. Also the story is complete shit, it would be funny if it was a parody.

    But not suprised the founders of Criterion after EA has been turning the studio into a soulless NFS making machine (and they carved up the staff and made ghost games) Most wanted 2012 was just another "Blackbox studio style" game. The cheap AI and EA's forcing of multiplayer and cutting down of single player adds up to mudane game that has very few players after a few months. But you compare to Burnout which has people still player it today

  • New Dragon Age: Inquisition screenshots show off fancy environments

    Dumbing DA2 was a terrible mistake, having "an awesome button" was horrible game design and the fact they took out the auto attack which turned into a button basher. Factor in the rushed game development, it felt even more removed from a RPG. EA badly wanted another "mass effect" but one aimed the gamer that enjoys shooting people in the head (which what ME turned into)

    Lets hope DA3 is the true sequel to the first game

  • Myth-busting the murky world of video game trade-ins

  • Darth_Flibble 18/12/2013

    I think people hoping for cheaper prices on console games if discs were killed off sound a bit gullible. The industry will say "oh we can't because they cost so much, somone has to pay for the million dollar advertising campaign you piece of shit!" "That will be 69.99 for that download" Then the average gamer will hand it over.

    You look at arcade titles and DLC on consoles and you only see price drops for about a week or just a day then they go back to normal price. With no real physical media for arcade games (its rare XBLA/PSN titles go onto disc) the whole physical media is holding back download prices is not really true

  • Overachiever For a Day

  • Darth_Flibble 15/12/2013

    Achievements are quite fun when you enjoy the game but they are awful when people just play games to get pointless number. Multiplayer ones are the worse eg in Mortal Kombat there is one to get 5 or 10 wins in a row and some losers where quitting games to maintain their wins in a row. On 360achievements site you can read the thread from losers who where doing it and trying to say it was fine and others should shut the fuck up.

    But it funny to read comments from gamers who hate achievements just because some are "achievement whores" They have mental block trying to understand you can play games and get achievements from games you enjoy. Also achievements are trophies are just the same, your PSN level is just like an achievement score
