  • Horizon Zero Dawn review

  • Darth_Flibble 21/02/2017

    @bigmalky

    Completely agree with having demos, a demo for a good game would be very good well of selling the game. A demo will be a negative if the game is pile of crap. There is a youtube video of annoying nasally american talking down to gamers about demos but its awful. Lots of gamers thought Doom (2016) was going to be awful due to lack of reviews at launch, if they did a single player demo before the reviews then they wouldn't need word of mouth from gamers.

  • Dead Space is the sequel Resident Evil 4 deserved

  • Darth_Flibble 19/02/2017

    I think it was on an old bombcast, Dead space 3 was focus tested to death to make it appeal to people who hated 1 and 2. Made it more of shooter, added bro-op/co-op with CoD style military guy. I really liked the early parts of DS2 where you have to run but the more casual gamers hated it as they just wanted to starting shooting things. 2 did ramp up the action towards the end but overall it was a great sequel.


    imperciallegion is spot on about Revelations 1, the levels where you gun down loads of hunters were terrible but the Jill levels on the ship where great. Revelations 1 and 2 needed a bigger budget for the game as it could of done with less rough edges to the game. Revelations 2; wanted to like it but the levels looked really ugly and dull and it was a quite rough around the edges for this era game.

    Was replaying Dead Space 1 on xbox one in B/C mode and it was still as great as it was at launch. Shame they made into more a co-op shooter in 3 which killed the franchise off. Reply +1

  • Call of Duty will "return to its roots" after Infinite Warfare sales disappoint

  • Darth_Flibble 11/02/2017

    Going back to WW2 is a bad idea unless they can make the gameplay fresh. No point doing the same old gameplay from old games. If copied the CoD2 and 3 format, then people will be bored of the WW2 era. Infinite warfare felt very generic and the space combat didn't add much, while titanfall 2 was fun single player. I don't think its the setting, its the quality of the developer Reply +1

  • Double Dragon 4 review

  • Darth_Flibble 04/02/2017

    Have to agree a bad review as I learned more from the Giant Bombcast with Jeff Gerstmann telling more about the game in 5 or so minutes. For example the terrible platforming bits from DD2, I hated them in 2 and going for NES graphics with old, inaccurate hitboxes is 2 more bad decisions for the game, at least make it look and play the superior arcade games.

    Some devs are so obsessed with making it look "retro" and make it have very limited animation frames, add it shitty hitboxes (again Gerstmann mentioned this and sometimes it was broken), its going to be less fun to play.

    I would like a good 2D brawler but will never get one if devs keep making it like some anicent NES game

  • Xbox Games with Gold for February detailed

  • Darth_Flibble 25/01/2017

    Some decent to ok games, wanted to try P.C. as there was never a demo and the devs NFS shift games had some janky handling on the controller. Not sure about Lovers in...... heard you have to play in MP mode or its too early on. Force unleashed was ok back then but the star destoyer QTE bit was shit. MI2 is great. Decent month

    Since it was mentioned, if they want downloads to be standard on consoles, they need demos and trials, also refunds like on steam. Buying all digital sounds crap right now

    Shame Google didn't keep the Nexus brand as the Nexus phones are great value for money. My nexus 4 has been an excellent phone, the battery is a bit shit now (when it gets around the 40 or 30% mark, it drops rapidly to 15%. Will get a new phone but it won't be a Pixel.

    While DA2 had a shorten development cycle, I got the impression Mike Laidlaw really wanted the game to be more for the casual gamer as he went on about the "push the awesome button for cool stuff to happen" aka button bashing. iirc the 1 button attack like Origins was patched in afterwards on 360 and ps3 anyway.

  • Bethesda's anti-consumer review policy comes as no surprise

  • Darth_Flibble 26/10/2016

    Its funny how some hate reviews but ok with YT "influencers" (aka paid shills) they are being given games to promote. I never just read one review, I read a few to see if its worth getting, if most of the reviews say its average or poor then its a good chance its average or poor.

    Bethesda is shooting themself in the foot holding back review copies as Dishonoured is going to be great, Doom single player was great. 2k held Mafia 3 back and it was not the greatest game but they gave away expensive limited editions to YT shills for paid promotion! The thing is look at the same thread on xbox achievements and its sister site, full of angry gamers pre-ordering download games, the publishers don't care as there is gamers ready to take one for them

    Soul Suspect is not bad, the controls are bit naff and it was just really a 360 game released on xbox one but its good game concept of a ghost solving murders. Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon is really good and does not become a chore unlike the main games icon vomit map Reply +3
  • Dead Rising 4 DLC will add mini-golf, make the campaign time-sensitive

  • Darth_Flibble 20/10/2016

    Dead rising is slowly losing what makes it unique, 3 was toned down a bit in terms of weirdness. You had some freaks for psycho bosses but the main game was so straight faced. It had time limits but they were so generous they felt unnecessary, nightmare mode was not that hard. DR4 has no timer and regen health? Reply +1

  • Mafia 3 review

  • Darth_Flibble 12/10/2016

    I completed it on tuesday then traded it as the missions leading up to the killing the main target is so repetitive. It feels like padding to get the game "40+ hours to complete" Stealing a truck and drive back from the swamp is boring then some of the side missions are just the same or you are stealing a boat or car. When you get a mission to kill a main target its pretty good set piece or setting apart from the sniper rifle shootout in some junk yard. The Guardian review summed it up well

    Mafia III’s predecessor had a similarly stylish open world, but wasted it by giving players nothing to do besides its main story missions. Mafia III has the opposite problem – tons that you have to do, you just don’t want to do any of it.
    Had quite a few crashes on xbox one and seems I'm not alone with this, some amusing bugs ingame but the AI is dumb as a bag of hammers, I don't think they can fix that

    The game is disappointing, I saw moaning about "other games had bugs/gltiches etc and don't get the hate" but 2k knew the game wouldn't review well and didn't sent out review copies. To make it worse it sent expensive copies with record players to youtube "influencers" to shill via social media!

  • Face-Off: Dead Rising Remastered

  • Darth_Flibble 18/09/2016

    Just because a game is ported and its now 1080/60 (not that it maintain solid 60 fps) does not mean its remaster. If I converted a DVD movie to bluray format to 1080p does not mean I've remastered it (same with resizing a JPG in photoshop to certain res) If you look at ports of Uncharted, Metro redux and Gravity rush they are real remasters and shows what companies can do.

    On Amazon dead rising 1 disc is Ł24/25! (while bioshock collection is Ł32)

  • Darth_Flibble 18/09/2016

    Not surprised Capcom got some developer to put out really lazy ports as they know people will buy them anyway. If they were proper remasters then that would of be great but as they churned out poor ports it means they will not coming to xbox one B/C.
    If gamers didn't buy these shit ports then companies will put some effort into them but like activision, they know people will buy them regardless telling others "they are not forced to buy them" - Part of the problem

    Also not sure how much money it costs for these ports but it would be better off funding new games that are small download titles. While profits from these ports may go towards funding new games, probably go towards some publisher's exec bonus ;)

  • Watch: Games nearly ruined by one terrible level

  • Darth_Flibble 04/09/2016

    The dreamers level from the Buffy game on the original xbox (not Chaos bleeds) terrible platforming level and no checkpoints iirc. One time I really wanted to beat the developers who designed the level. The fact they didn't know how painful it was, shows how clueless some developers are.

    While the Batman tank fight goes on a bit, thought the final Riddler race was the level that ruined the game.

    edit: Also the boss fights in Deus Ex: HR, unless you cheese them with the typhoon weapon

  • Deus Ex: Mankind Divided DLC returns Human Revolution character

  • Darth_Flibble 03/09/2016

    There is a good Jim Sterling video about the microtransactions, from a source it turns out they were shoved in last minute by the order of the publisher while the team was trying to do last minute fixes and getting the game out of the door. Good to see the publisher focusing on the priorities! It seems the game was not finished 6 months ago, hence the delay.

    While the pre-order mission isn't great, its actually part of the main story, it feels cut out.

  • Deus Ex: Mankind Divided tops UK chart but Human Revolution sales were "much stronger"

  • Darth_Flibble 30/08/2016

    Completed Mankind Divided without needing the pay for crappy cheats (although I didn't play it on Hard) I like how it does not keep telling you or reminding to buy booster packs like Ubisoft does. I do think gamers should be telling publishers these sort of pay for cheats shouldn't be allowed in games. While in this game its not needed, publishers always push their luck to see what they can get away with. Its like their pre-order deal, without gamers telling them "it was shit" they wouldn't of dropped it. I bet if the publishers get the opinion, this is ok they will double down on the next game and more companies will do this

    On the other hand, The Breach mode also in Mankind Divided is f2p style game full of paid booster packs, buy ammo etc etc or Grind to get "premium weapon/item pack" Also the mode gets boring quite quick due to being underpowered as you need more Augs.

  • Darth_Flibble 25/08/2016

    The Microtransactions are gross but at least they don't shove them in your face like in other games like in Ubisoft game. Not buying the game is double edged sword, while you show you are taking a stand, it may damage the future of the series. Just don't buy the Microtransactions and take it their forums. Just like the pre-order bullshit for this game, the publishers backed down very quickly Reply 0
  • Sleeping Dogs developer's new game is, sadly, not Sleeping Dogs 2

    There has only been 1 sleeping dogs game, so its not like its long running rehashed series. New city, new game mechanics etc would be amazing.

    The DLC for sleeping dogs was good but it was so short and I guess it was done on cheap budget, shame as all 3 had prospects.

    Sleeping dogs sequel would be great as the 1st game was so good. The "remaster" was not very good, it was a cheap port. Gamers claimed it would fund the sequel, the excuse is always bullshit!. I don't get why they don't want to do SD2, triad wars was a massive failure and canned and now they are doing this game, tbh it won't do well like battleborn. Reply +1

  • Dead Rising remasters get release date and price

  • Darth_Flibble 10/08/2016

    Too many games just get labelled as remasters by gamers and bloggers just copying and pasting from other sites. There has been nothing to say the old DR games will be technically improved apart from 1080p/60fps, which is more than some crappy "remasters" get. I hope we are wrong and its full of texture and animation updates, AI improvements etc but publisher have seen some gamers just buy some rushed out port while some gamer screams out "don't like it fucking don't buy it!!!111" Part of the problem Reply -1

  • Fallout 4 announces Nuka World expansion for August

  • Darth_Flibble 13/06/2016

    Fallout 4 is one of my most disappointing games, really looking forward to it but I never asked for this (as Adam jensen would say) Made into more of a standard shooter as VATS is gimped due to the lack of stats like in past games and you have to put points into your SPECIAL. Perks are now are boring are more limited. New vegas did the companions and factions much better (companions and factions both had each their own endings). Also the game engine should of been taken out back and both both barrels through it a long time ago. Reply -5
  • Lionhead: The inside story

  • Darth_Flibble 12/05/2016

    That was great article, Eurogamer needs more well written articles instead of cheap click bait etc. While I didn't work in the Game industry, have experienced a bigger company buying the company I worked for (then sold it on for a quick profit) and saw how much soulless it become. Having to do horrible health and safety videos, watching badly acted HR videos, people leaving in droves over the years. MS really butchered Lionhead in the long term it seems and it died. (Which EA have done multiple times over the years) If Lionhead were allowed to do Fable 4 (something all the lines of past games) then I think they would be around today. Reply 0
  • Why people are talking about Resident Evil 7

  • Darth_Flibble 10/05/2016

    Its so easy to design a good Res evil game, first: throw out the big action game ideas of 6. Have limited ammo, slow zombies that are react to bullets hitting them (ones in 6 didn't that much) have puzzles, no giant set pieces or giant dumb bosses like in 6.

    Take all the good things from the old games but more modern controls. I don't think capcom can do it as they have a "fanbase" now of some gamers who want a big dumb shooter until they get the next COD/battlefield/gears/halo. The industry needs more types of genres now a days. The "runaway" survival horror games have become too common and I think the industry needs SH games with a bit of shooting in but not RE5 and 6 levels.

  • Watch: Where did Resident Evil go wrong?

  • Darth_Flibble 16/04/2016

    While I really liked 4, the move to more action was the start of the series going wrong. 5 took the small bad things of 4 and expanded on them into more a clunky action shooter and threw in forced co-op with some shit AI (sheeva would get his self killed and waste ammo and herbs etc) Then take out 99% of the puzzles (there is a video of 2 devs saying they had feedback they some hated them and gave up without trying). RE6 is just shit unless you want just another shooter and not a good one at that.

    Capcom are just chasing the "shooter audience" gamers who just want another shooter while they wait for the next future military FPS. EA did the same with dead space 3 and that killed the franchise.

    RE: revelations games are better 5 and 6 despite the smaller budget - one thing I did hate about RE: rev1 was the 1 "old school" level than a all out action shooter game. I do need to play more of rev2

    Good to read some good comments of outbreak spin offs, never played them as there where on ps2 and online was not a big thing in those days. It could really work if capcom CAN get it right. Shame they funded that umberla corps or whatever its called as co-op outbreak survival game would be amazing. Stay together or betray your team and take all the weapons and loot

  • Darth_Flibble 24/03/2016

    @rob

    I know no one in this comments section has called it a remake yet but gamers often call ports/remaster a remake

    I don't think games that are slightly improved port should be called a remaster. (the box does not even it call it a remastered) I'm borrowing the game from a friend and the texture is SR4 look rough as the last gen verisons. Also when you look at work done on uncharted, metro redux and others they are actually remastered. SR4 is like upscaling a DVD to bluray. I know what you are saying, its technically a remaster as some work has gone into it but its not much

    Good selection of titles for April, Sunset overdrive is a great game and its "AAA" game been giving away with your gold membership. Sony does have at least 1 good indie game every month but MS are doing better now

    Also saints row 4 re-elected on current consoles is not a remaster (people call everything a remaster or HDREMAKE, its fucking lazy port - a cheap cash grab, they never patched it to fix various bugs and looks only a tiny bit better than the 360/ps3 versions

  • It sounds like Hitman's online saves issue is here to stay

  • Darth_Flibble 24/03/2016

    My internet is find during the day but sometimes in the evening it drops for a second and its fucking annoying when it does - usually when I'm watching netflix. Also you are screwed when some fucktard is DDOS some game service

    I really liked the look of the new hitman game but if they keep this "DRM" then if I play it then it will be second hand disc. I have no doubt its the publisher forcing this on the developer eg like the pre-order toss for the deus ex game. Gamers voiced their dislike for the preorder shit and they stopped it and I think if gamers were nice and said they didn't like it (and not angry shits about it) the publisher might listen
