  • 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

  • Sony will let Plus members vote on the PS4 Instant Game Collection

  • Darth_Flibble 01/08/2015

    If there is a playstation story on here, you can bet Turdskippa will be trolling it up.

    Voting is a bad idea for psn+ games as people are idiots, as mentioned just added the words "'zombie', 'craft', or 'survival' in the name, it usually wins by default." (and on any platform)

  • Rory McIlroy PGA Tour review

  • Darth_Flibble 24/07/2015

    Sadly as shown by the charts, gamers will blindly buy certain franchises like EA's PGA golf as "its one of the games they buy every year" and will call it a GOTY! Publishers know these sheep will buy any game and throw it together Reply 0
  • Looks like there's a Dead Island: Definitive Edition

  • Darth_Flibble 22/07/2015

    Its going to be a cheap port as its called Definitive Edition NOT remastered. Gamers are doing a dis-service to developers who actually do remaster games by calling games like this and Prototype a "remaster" or "HD REMAKEREMASTER" Reply 0
  • 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

  • Prototype's HD Biohazard Bundle is a big disappointment

  • Darth_Flibble 17/07/2015

    Stop using the buzzword "remaster" ad nauseam and call those ports for what they are: conversions.

  • Take a look at Uncharted 2 remastered for PlayStation 4

  • Darth_Flibble 16/07/2015

    That extra credit demo daze video is terrible, blaming gamers for not buying bad games. Only played 1 bad demo of decent game and that was Enslaved, they selected the opening level to play which is nothing like the main game.Not the gamer's fault the publisher or developer selected that level. Some games like GTA don't need a demo but games that are download only need a demo or trial but some devs don't want you to try the game before you buy it! Reply +3
  • Surprise! Prototype game bundle released for Xbox One today

  • Darth_Flibble 14/07/2015

    Surprised the angry "you don't have to fucking buy it" crowd are not here yet. Its a cheap cash grab, almost no effort into the port and WILL sell due as the "Cheeevo" (fucking hate that expression) or trophy sluts will buy it as its 2nd game is easy 1000 or platinum. :rolleyes: Reply +1
  • 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

  • Don't hold your breath for PS4 backwards compatibility

  • Darth_Flibble 20/06/2015

    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!!

  • Watch 40 minutes of MGS5: The Phantom Pain

    so I'm hopeful that these optional micro-transaction won't make the game feel overly restrictive for the penny pinchers among us.
    Wow, how unprofessional, before you were just a bit of hack and always got things wrong as just slapped anything together but being smug industry apologist is a new low for mr Matloaf

  • Uwe Boll quits crowdfunding with expletive-laden tirade after third project fails

  • Darth_Flibble 08/06/2015

    Boll has always been a really nasty man baby (his fanboys are no better), he made shit films that exploit the loop hole in germany and when they closed it, he turned to "fans" to fund his disasters. People see the light and he launches a sad attack on people who don't what to fund his shit, fuck off you cunt

    (Boll also challenged his critics to boxing match but the shit bag didn't tell them he was a former boxer) What a wanker

  • Resident Evil Zero remake gets a debut trailer

    None of these are remakes! (apart from the gamecube one) People know if a film is a remake but a clueless about games!

    Anyway, really enjoyed RE Zero and will get it again to play again in HD

  • Need for Speed reboot requires online connection

  • Darth_Flibble 29/05/2015

    EA close their servers all the time, they just have to give a bit of notice and this game would be unplayable. 2k tried to close the NBA 2K14 servers recently which would make online career save games unplayable. Thats a complete joke that would close the servers that quick. Thanks to the "moaners" (as called by the apologists) they extended the life of the servers

    http://www.polygon.com/2015/4/7/8367823/nba-2k14-servers-are-back-online-following-anger-over-career-killing

    If EA did a new burnout now it wouldn't be the burnout that everyone liked, it would be EA's bastardised version! I hope the old developers do spiritual successor.

    Don't get your hopes up its a remaster (its not even in the title) I bet its going to be a quick and cheap port with the DLC from the 360 and ps3) Sadly lazy games journalists label all these ports as "remakes" or "remasters" Reply -1

    @Renato84

    Good point, any time it was mentioned, the fanboys and the massive ubisoft apologist would shout them down or down vote them. Had to laugh at the "gamers" that paid about 40 in AC unity credits for "hacks" then didn't get their cheats!

  • Gears of War: Ultimate Edition spotted

  • Darth_Flibble 11/05/2015

    They are not remaking Dishonored and Gears from the ground up, so why are people calling them remakes? Just because some journalists puts into his article does not make it true.

    I see we already have the "don't like it don't buy it ffs" someone in the forum thread for the gears remaster made a good point about money from a remaster could go towards a new game

  • In Theory: Nintendo GameCube remasters on Wii U

  • Darth_Flibble 25/04/2015

    Instead of remasters, they could make new games inspired by the old games like a new f-zero based on the gamecube version. That would be amazing as it would be using modern game engine. Reply +10
  • Gears of War remaster set for Xbox One - report

  • Darth_Flibble 25/04/2015

    Another "Journalist" that does not know the difference between a remake and remaster.

    As another studio is working on this game, not that bothered as black tusk are making the new game. I hope they actually do a director's game as there is levels that could do with improving like the shitty AI if you fight RAAM on insane on your own, Dom would run into RAAM in seconds and die. Also the mine cart section is a bitch if your human co-op partner is slow at reacting. They could add the retro lancer from 3 and judgement. But I don't anything would be improved, it will be a a bit nicer looking port.

  • Resident Evil HD remaster sells 1m copies

  • Darth_Flibble 24/04/2015

    Glad at least 2 other people can tell the difference between a port, remaster and remake. Its really poor that game journos don't know the difference. You wouldn't call a film being released on bluray 4k "an remake"

    I know a lot of people want RE2 to be remade but capcom want cheap ports, RE2 would have remade almost from the start (there is bits that where made for the wii "virtua cop style" titles iirc)

    RE zero is the next game capcom will port over

    edit: forgot to say, hope capcom see people want old school survival horror not RE5 or 6

  • Wolfenstein: The Old Blood physical editions out the week after download versions

  • Darth_Flibble 17/04/2015

    I'm glad I waited for the disc version of Dying light as by the end of the game I was bored of it. Sold it for 34 and only paid 40 for it. The download version was 55!.

    Publishers on consoles keep their prices high as they never really drop the price.
    I can understand they can't price the downloads of some AAA game are 25 at launch (which will ever never happen!) as it was piss off retailers like amazon etc but you see stuff like the The order 1886 still at 50 or 55 ON PSN also there is numerous examples in the past. They can't drop the price?

    One last thing, download only titles and DLC stay at full price 99% of the time unless there is an sale on consoles. I only mention this as people blame discs for high prices on downloads

    Shame it was not a bit of free story dlc, got the game yesterday and while it looks amazing in person, the gameplay is so average and having QTE was desperate attempt to break up the shooting. Every weapon should of been this strange steampunk invention as to make the combat a bit different.Its laughable to read, "every negative comment is from people who have not played ffs!!!!111" Bless

    Its not a bad game, just very very average with some really nice graphics

  • Silent Hills/P.T. page removes Kojima Productions' logo

  • Darth_Flibble 01/04/2015

    Someone's name being removed from a project (film or game) is never a sign things ended well between each party. Sometimes projects need someone with a strong vision or it goes to shit, Previous silent hill games, res evil, castlevania are all strong examples of the games going to shit LoS1 is decent but LoS2 is a fucking turd!. Also Bioshock was a better game because of ken levine, he delayed the game to change some things and made the game better (its on the wiki page for the game) Konami will just get yes men to run the games and then into the ground.

    Part of the problem is these "remasters" are just poor ports, some cheap quick port for quick cash grab.

    Rather have a new Borderlands game built from the ground up rather than some port for a quick cash grab.

  • Yasuhisa Kawamura and the Resident Evil that never was

  • Darth_Flibble 18/01/2015

    Good read, its understandable how RE games went down the toilet, I enjoyed 4 despite the shift to more shooting but "yes men" in charge of the 5th game it took everything wrong about 4 and made it worse (more QTE, more shooting, less puzzles for the ADD shooter fan) less said about 6 (and the crazies that defend with their life!) (also the ps2 ver of RE4 was not as good as the cube ver) They just need to look at the HD ver of the cube game and take ideas from that

    Also I think a lot of people are going to be disappointed with the HD remaster in terms of it being remastered with better textures and backgrounds etc as really has not. I wish capcom really want for it in terms of updating the game.

    Had 1 glitch where I tackled the solider that was running away and it didn't trigger the next point of the mission but restarting from the checkpoint fixed it although I had to do the chase again. Thankfully the dead kings missions are very short, while the production values are really good, if they did charge for the DLC (as planned) then it would be hard to say the DLC is worth it. The underground sections are not as good as previous games like in 2. Reply 0

    I think the difference is to do story/adventure game it has to be QTE and its upfront what the game is (the other big thing is not an autofail QTE = game over)

    In other games they feel shoe horned, eg some game designer will just shove in some shitty QTE or button mashing because they can't be arsed to think of something interesting for their game. Like in tomb raider its Press X not to die in this cutscene!
