  • Lovefilm by Post to be closed forever on Halloween

  • Darth_Flibble 15/08/2017

    Amazon ran Lovefilm into the ground, when it was not owned by Amazon, amazing service and got new games on release day 99% of the time. Amazon just wanted the Lovefilm instant of the business and never wanted the disc rental side. I use netflix and its great but so many of the films are shit and new releases are just trash (same with amazon's) My lovefilm ends this August and changing over to CP, fuck Amazon

    We have loads of online film rental places and they are all the same rip off prices, the huge competition has not lead to better prices

  • Mass Effect Andromeda studio BioWare Montreal will be absorbed by EA Motive

  • Darth_Flibble 01/08/2017

    The God of War Ascension and Gears of War Judgment comparisons are way off, those 2 games were 1 too many sequels but playable, not broken or shitted out. Andromeda was just a mess, even they have fixed the shit animations and faces to some degree, the shitty MMO style quests and some of the main side quests were not great. Also some bland crew memebers right down there with the meat head James Vega from ME3.

    EA should of never gave it to studio that was DLC support studio

  • Why Wii U ports on Switch are good for Nintendo - and for us

  • Darth_Flibble 15/07/2017

    (we're moving on to full-on remakes now, such as Shadow of the Colossus and Modern Warfare Remastered)
    Modern Warfare isn't a remake, its a remaster, its in the title of the game. Redoing a texture or lighting does not make it a remake. Don't why people in gaming can't tell the difference between a port, remaster and real remake

  • 10-hour Mass Effect: Andromeda trial now open to all

  • Darth_Flibble 14/07/2017

    A demo can actually sell a game, its not going to help a bad game but they should of put a demo of single player of Doom out last year at launch, the game had to go by word of mouth to prove it was great. Reply +1
  • Four months on, BioWare still patching Mass Effect: Andromeda facial animations

  • Darth_Flibble 10/07/2017

    Even with the animation fixed, they can't fix the deep flaws to the characters, the poor MMO style like quests that pad out the game and it would take work for the player to use squad members powers like the previous game. Really wanted to like the game but its a poor effort but hey, its easy to say stuff "hate train!!!" to the negative comments Reply +1

    The ship levels were great in Rev1 but the other characters were it turns into dumb shooter were awful. Hopefully they improved the end of game boss fight, complete git.

  • EA reckons 40% of console game sales will be downloads by the end of 2017

  • Darth_Flibble 10/05/2017

    If you look at games that are download only (or even DLC) the prices are kept high and only drop in a sale then back up to full price. Old games are still the same price on consoles still, this is why I don't trust a monopoly for download on console. You can't say "while it works on PC" this is because no one controls the PC marketplace unlike XBL and PSN

    Also say if a disc is £40, why downloads are £60 to £80? I don't believe people like amazon are twisting the publisher's arm to up the price to that amount. Some will still go for physical media for £40 when they can get a download ver for say £45. Publishers now some will pay the £60+ as they have a monopoly on pricing (like they do with titles that download only)

    Your post is quite dishonest, I'm not comparing the two, just asking why sites didn't even cover it as it was more than some bigot saying "ah fucking white people" Manveer refered to white people as a species (as in a different species) Thats a really nice try by you but No

    never heard of this youtube twat, nothing has been lost. More bothered about the utter bigot Manveer heir AND how all the major gaming websites choose to ignore his hateful tweets and views and worst of all how bioware bosses supported him. Just because some "gamergate" twats said he said some utter bullshit about him trying to destroy the white race people choose to ignore it and put on the blinkers despite his tweets. He should be of sacked for his comments but you know, double standards.

    it seems bigot Manveer was just a contract staff and has left bioware montreal but this racist can still fuck off with his backwards bigoted views.

    @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.

  • 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

    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

  • 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

    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 IIIís 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 Ė tons that you have to do, you just donít 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)

  • 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.

    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.
