  • Sorry, Microsoft, but you can't own Minecraft

  • Darth_Flibble 13/09/2014

    MS would be better off spending the money on new development studio or 3. I get minecraft is popular with certain gamers but mojang is only known for one game. There is nothing to stop notch or anyone else creating the next minecraft successor. Reply +6
  • Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham first Lego game to get a season pass

  • Darth_Flibble 09/09/2014

    They will do micro-transactions next, just imagine, can unlock the characters normally or you can pay 1.99 for each characters and there is 100 chracaters to collect (some publishers just cummed at the thought!)

    Problem with season passes, you don't know what the quality is going to be like, borderlands dlc quality is all over the place. The big problem is you have gamers that will buy the season pass day one (some will even buy without knowing what they are getting) because they get sucked into the hype and go full fanboy retard or buy it out of some loyalty.

  • Resident Evil: Revelations 2 stars Claire Redfield

  • Darth_Flibble 08/09/2014

    Revelations was an improvement over 5 and 6 (not hard!) but it would switch to another level where it was all about shooting cannon fodder enemies and you didn't have to save ammo as your ammo is refilled when you play the next shooter level. Shame with Revelations port they didn't improve the game from its 3ds beginnings. RE games also had good line between shooting and SH style ammo and gameplay but RE4 did mess it up and 5 and 5 took a crap over the series as capcom "tried to take on call of duty"

    I hope they keep RAID mode but make it less grindy and don't even think about micro-transactions!

  • Sega claims Gearbox led the marketing for Aliens: Colonial Marines

  • Darth_Flibble 04/09/2014

    Pitchford has always been a piece of work

    Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford has claimed it "doesn't matter" how critics judge Duke Nukem Forever, insisting that his team "know the game is great" and authors of "lowball" reviews would be "held accountable by the readers".

  • Capcom announces Resident Evil Revelations 2

  • Darth_Flibble 04/09/2014

    Revelations was big improvement over RE5 and RE6 but there was fuck ups that the developers had no clue. The dodging worked only half the time and you press Up not up and A to dodge despite what it says on screen. The awful shooting hunters in the tower level, zero atmosphere or tension. Also you can't run.

    Sadly capcom feels they must cater to people who just want to shoot things as well now. Don't put a on rails shooting section and feel the wrath who liked the direction 5 and 6 took

    Just because they port a game to the new consoles does not its a remaster (it really does not help with really poor news reporting from Eurogamer) Metro redux is a remaster when you look at what they did to improve it. They is nothing to say SR4 has been heavily improved. Reply 0
  • Resident Evil: Revelations 2 spotted on Xbox.com

  • Darth_Flibble 24/08/2014

    Actually the front cover looks fake, capcom wouldn't release the japanese 360 version due to lack of sales over there. While the image looks crap but thats capcom for you.

    Also sad to see someone in the game industry calling the upcoming gamecube version of resident evil 1 "a remake". It was a remake when it was on the cube. people think its a remake of a remake now!

  • Why Silent Hill 2 is still the most disturbing game ever made

  • Darth_Flibble 17/08/2014

    The HD version they PORTED to 360 and ps3 is a very poor job, its an lazy broken version shat out by the publishers (and the studio that ported didn't give a shit as it was quick cash job for them) Some gamers call ports "remakes" they didn't remake anything. Anyone who believes its a remake will be disappointed. Reply +3
  • Ubisoft: only "vocal minority" complains about number of Assassin's Creed games

  • Darth_Flibble 14/08/2014

    With the AC series the quality has gone down as they milked it, Brotherhood was good as it was AC2.5 (using a lot of AC2 assets) Revelations had the tower defence thing not many liked and nothing amazing added. AC3 just terrible and AC4 has the boat sections from 3 but added the fleet stuff but the main missions were terrible "follow X and listen to their chatter). Rogue seems clobbered together things from AC3 and 4. Unity looks like it might be good. Despite lots of studios working on it, a year does not feel long enough for them to produce something unique.

    These games are popular at the minute but so WAS Guitar hero, I've seen some retard comments on various sites like "haters gonna hate", (they must of used the entire damaged brain cell to say that!) But even these gamers will find the next shiny object and move onto that

  • Resident Evil 1 remastered for PS4, Xbox One, PC, PS3 and Xbox 360

  • Darth_Flibble 05/08/2014

    Been waiting for this game come to xbox or playstation, hoping the backgrounds don't look pixellated and poorly uprezed. I know capcom did lazy ports for RE4 and RE:CV and had the nerve to ask for a lot money than they should.

    While its another port (of a remake) I really want to play this on a HDTV as the cube looks poor on HDTV (unless there is a way you get to upscale a bit?) Also it show Capcom what gamers want in resident evil game before they tried to appeal to the gears/COD crowd.

    I don't see it as way to kill second hand games so much, its a way of selling slightly older games when sales might have slowed a bit. Also it would help if you could spend 20 and get these 4 games instead of buying fifa in a shop for 20 right now.

    At the minute its 4 older games they must have played but you can't compare it to netflix as its just EA games. maybe this will change

    I see the apologists are out in force.... Randy pitchford is a nasty piece of work as if you go back to when he was promoting Duke nukem forever. Gearbox lied about the quality of the game. If they showed it to Sega and and it was BS then of course they were going to carry on funding it. Also gearbox took credit for the game before release and throw the other studio under the bus.

    A lot of these "remasters" are just cheap ports, there is a few examples of games being remastered like older God of war games for the ps3 (now that was a good example of old game being redone for the ps3). But EG and others saying any old port is a remaster only spreads this marketing BS. 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 +1
  • Codemasters unveils Grid Autosport DLC plan

    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!

    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

  • 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

    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!
