    DA2 was a terrible follow on, the first dragon age had its faults but they tried to make it more main stream and failed badly. Also it was very rushed which is why the locations are heavily reused. I don't get the love it gets from a tiny amount that liked it Reply +1

    Not surprised at the score, you have spark unlimited and team ninja developing it and the trailers made it look like a dumb, stupid game (not in a good way) aimed at kids who thinking swear word or 2 make its "hardcore" Reply 0
  • Epoch: Returns - a game inspired by Mass Effect 1's planetary exploration

  • 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
    THIS

    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

  • Games are squandering their potential to truly immerse us

  • Darth_Flibble 08/03/2014

    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
  • Bleszinski: "I'll never make another disc-based game"

  • Darth_Flibble 18/02/2014

    "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

  • Darth_Flibble 24/01/2014

    There is little proof publishers will drop downloads once the disc format is dead. you just have to look at XBLA and PSN titles, they only drop in price in sales that last a week or just a day then go back up to full price. Also downloads have start to climb in price Reply +1

    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

    I did have CCS on my tablet (although I never spent any money) and its pay to win game unless you keep retrying until the game gives you a better layout of candy. You play some levels and it would be completed with extra moves or a "power up"

    Also the Mark Kermode quote is why I hate him, Twilight is just poorly written. Anyone says anything and its fangirl fans got mental

  • New Dragon Age: Inquisition screenshots show off fancy environments

  • Darth_Flibble 21/12/2013

    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

    it great a focus on shooting and having meaty weapons shooting the hordes of hell. its funny reading comments from gamers who only played FPS stating from modern warfare, they vomit in disgust that you are not straight into the game not in heli on mini gun on rails gunning down half of the middle east

    The thing most gamers will not buy these MT aka cheats but there is people that will and there the ones that will make it popular. It so funny reading comments about the new GT game saying they have not changed it from the last one, yeah but you have to pay real money to skip the grind for new cars to buy instead of fixing the GT economy.

    its funny people are blaming MS when sony are doing it GT6. Despite what the lone defender says, it does affect forza5 and if you accept this then its going to get a LOT worse. Spartan Assault has rent-able weapons, thats disgusting and it will spread to other games if people think renting a in-game weapon for a day is worth it. its good most gamers are not going to buy these MT but there is a few like on the gaf thread where they are happy to throw $10 for some cheats, so they don't have to get all the upgrades (the publisher should take another $10 off them as tax) Reply +1

    Gamers do vote with their wallets but there is always some who are "proud" to waste money on dlc that are cheats (and no they are not like phoning a cheat line) The money never goes to the developer's back pocket despite the lies people spout.

    Forza 5 is one of the worst as they have taken the option out, past forza games it was not needed and MS saw this and got turn 10 to take out giving cars to the player. Now its pay for the game and you have to grind for money. gamers who do pay for cheats are too stupid they are taken advantage of.

    Seen it will be in every game and every game you will have to grind for money etc and that day I will be happy for the video game industry to crash. Also the indie developer will take the spotlight as-long as they don't become like the big publishers (but no Phil fishs please)

    In Dead space 3, it gave you way too much health and ammo but on Hard, it felt you could do with them. Also there was somethings you had to pay extra for like extra scavenger bots and decrease in time as you can't unlock them without paying

    The worst bit is you use your in-game rations (also if you are dumb and pay with real money) you get a random selection of gun parts. Mass effect 3 did the same thing. Its really sleazy move by companies

    No one is expecting really cheap downloads to undermine shops, it will never happen even if discs dead, you will see expensive downloads still. No one puts out, you see DLC and arcade games on XBL and PSN and some are a rip off despite no retail disc to price against.

    "it took too darned long to progress to the higher performance cars and items in the game." So it instead of making the game less "grindy" and fixing that flaw of the previous games you are expected to pay or grind for cash? I swear some gamers have Stockholm syndrome after the publishers touched them

    In GTA, the creepy apologists said "you will not need the Micro-payments FFS" (not they had played it then) then the developers scale down how much you earn by replaying missions. So you had to grind more unless you did the car glitch to earn money. Developers don't add these Micro-payments if you don't need them in general although Forza throw loads of cars at you and never felt I need to buy a car. thats the only series where I can Micro-payments didn't affect the game Reply +1
  • What the hell is that?

  • Darth_Flibble 16/11/2013

    Seen plenty of comments on various forums saying launch games have always been poor and "we" should lower expectations on games. I find this strange as consoles launch games have a number of amazing titles (not every game) A part of the problem is there is no wow factor eg a massive jump from last consoles. Killzone 4 and forza 5 look good but its not massive leap in quality. Another problem is there is gamers happy with just more of the same but make the graphics a little nicer. Some utter mong on another forum couldn't understand why gamers want better AI and end to heavy scripting in gamers "As AI has been crap for years why expect it to change" its these sort of gamers that will buy lazy yearly sequels Reply 0

Problem is people that buy the game every year regardless of new features will eventually get bored of it.

    @Calbie

    in AC case, the games become the same thing again and again and any new ideas are poorly added like in AC:R and AC3. No one liked the tower defence in AC:R and the other new features were boring. AC3 was a buggy mess with a terrible main character and poor setting for an assassin to leap about in. In COD, very rarely the single player has new features, its the same old thing, there is no jump in new game mechanics. GHOSTS SP could of been from 2009. Batman arkham origins is another example, its more of the same but worse. I hope the publishers don't want to yearly release it as B.AO is poor compared to the last 2 games

    Developers need more time to added new gameplay ideas that are good not just throw in some naff ones.

    Not sure why Mario and zelda games are being lumped in with the yearly cash cows as the main mario/zelda games are very different to the other ones. I like the new Mario game on the new wii-u (although I'm not getting a wiiu for 1 game)

    Borrowed Ghosts from a friend and on anything but Veteran its too easy. Put it on Veteran, you see how it still has the broken friendly AI and the lazy game design of sticking your head slightly and instantly targeted and hit. While the friendly AI just stands there cowering in cover and maybe firing the odd shot. Its been this way for years and the developers never fix it by having real AI or game design. it took them years to get rid of the lazy respawning enimey as it was cheap tactic to maker the game harder Reply +1
