  • 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

  • Xbox Live Games With Gold for November announced

  • Darth_Flibble 24/10/2016

    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
  • Darksiders: Warmastered Edition delayed until November

  • Darth_Flibble 19/10/2016

    Lets hope this one has bit care taken with the cheap port 2 had some bugs from the 360/ps3 release (iirc glitched achievements/trophies as well)

    They need to make a 3rd game instead of these cheap ports

    A sequel to sleeping dogs does not mean it would of gone down in quality like the AC games (1 sequel compared shit loads of every year sequels) Sleeping dogs 2 might have saved the company. Hope all the staff find new jobs quickly. Reply +4
  • 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 £24/25! (while bioshock collection is £32)

    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.

  • Deus Ex: Mankind Divided's annoying microtransactions in the spotlight

  • 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

  • Darth_Flibble 24/08/2016

    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
  • Watch - Deus Ex: Mankind Divided launch day mega stream

  • Darth_Flibble 23/08/2016

    Deus Ex: Invisible War was pretty poor even if you ignore the 1st game. IW was very limited by the original xbox in terms of maps and also it was so dumbed down eg ammo, biomods, script etc. PCgamer site has a good retrospective posted recently (ignore the crazies in the comment section!)

  • 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
  • Resident Evil 4 finally has a PlayStation 4, Xbox One release date

  • Darth_Flibble 07/07/2016

    I don't expect Capcom to make any effort with RE4 on the current consoles as RE4 on xbox 360/ps3 were quick ports (hardly any work was done on those formats and they looked a bit rough in terms of textures) RE5 and 6 on xbox1 and ps4 were hardly remasters, just slightly better ports 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

  • Sunset Overdrive and Saints Row 4 headline April's Games With Gold

  • 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

  • Darth_Flibble 19/03/2016

    I really like the gameplay footage of the Paris level (its what a hitman game should be unlike the previous one which was trying to be all things to all people) But forcing online connection and having bad servers is a twatty thing to do just becuase the publisher wants to collect data on people playing. Hitman blood money plays as well today when it was released, not saying have no online, just have it as opt in for the online, so I can play when the shitty servers fall over. Reply +1

    Its really sad how Lohan has fucked up her life, also unemployable as an actress due to be very unreliable, drunk and doing loads of drugs.

    Lacey Jonas Character looks nothing like the cover character and the cover character is based on another actress.

    RE4 on the 360 was a lazy port and I don't expect capcom to make an effort for these ones. RE6 deserves the criticism it gets, its horrible game trying to appeal to everyone but does not get much write. Its fans just say "I don't fucking understand the HATE!!!" There is loads of forum posts and reviews on why people don't like it

    5 would of been liked better if it didn't force the player to have dumb AI following you about that would let herself get chainsawed or wasting ammo and herbs. edit: the Lost in Nightmares DLC was lot more fun than entire main game

    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 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

    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

  • 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

  • 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!!!""
