  • Dynasty Warriors 8 Empires review

  • Der_tolle_Emil 02/03/2015

    @Cold_Waste I always thought they were a button masher too. Well, they pretty much are, but the combos do offer enough variety (at least in Hyrule Warriors, I never played a DW title) so that it doesn't get boring and you actually need to know which combo to use to defeat as many enemies as possible depending on their position around you. It's true though that the combos are easy to pull off and it's almost impossible to do something wrong but being as efficient as possible has a nice old-school charm to it. If you are battling stronger enemies and you have depleted their weak point gauge (or whatever it is called) you can still position yourself accordingly and try to catch as many enemies with the combo that is about to start. It's rarely necessary to do so but the game manages to deliver a nice feeling of being in complete control once you "master" the combos. It really all becomes about efficiency and that's kind of addictive, even though the basic gameplay is really nothing more than a simple button masher. Reply +1

    I never really understood those titles but seeing as I am completely hooked on Hyrule Warriors I might give this a spin after all. There's something oddly fascinating about the battles - once the gameplay clicks it's hard to let go. Reply +17
  • Here's what playable Beast Ganon looks like in Hyrule Warriors

  • Der_tolle_Emil 18/02/2015

    This game has me hooked. I never expected it to be this good, for some reason it just doesn't get boring. I even bought the DLC after finishing Legend Mode and I am surprised to see even more DLC. The amount of content in this game is already ridiculous if you ask me, I've been playing this game almost daily for for weeks now and I'm not even half through the original adventure map with several characters still at level 1.

  • Nintendo cancels TVii service launch in Europe

  • Der_tolle_Emil 16/02/2015

    I'd rather have it canceled completely than released with pretty limited functionality. Europe is a nightmare to launch a product like this. Almost every attempt that I know of has had to cut features leaving the user with a digital, severely gimped TV guide at best. You try them for a few minutes until you realize they aren't worth your time.

    Personally I never expected this service to amount to anything so I am not really disappointed to see its cancellation. It still would have been nice to finally see a company succeed in releasing a useful product like this.

  • Quake 2 on Xbox 360: the first console HD remaster

  • Der_tolle_Emil 16/02/2015

    I had absolutely no idea that Q2 had a 360 version. No clue how I missed that. Quite impressive to see it running at 1080/60; Obviously the hardware is capable to achieve this but I didn't expect anyone investing enough time to properly optimize it for that resolution. Even though the game is quite a bit older than the console they must have run into one or two bottlenecks when developing this. Reply 0

  • Cortana virtual assistant headed to Microsoft Office

  • Der_tolle_Emil 09/02/2015

    yeah, but it fucks up currency, date on the entire phone is yank and it has no fucking clue where it is EVEN THOUGH IT KNOWS IT'S IN ENGLAND :|
    That's not true. Check your region settings again, country and regional format are two different settings. You can set the country to United States and regional format to English (United Kingdom) or whatever it is you prefer.

    Changing the region pretty much only affects the availability of Cortana and what apps the Windows Store will show. The latter is slightly annoying if you need a local app which isn't in the international store but you can either get it using a browser or by changing the region, installing the app and then switching back to US. Apps will continue to work, the store only checks when you install an app.

  • GDC preview: Windows 10 vs SteamOS

  • Der_tolle_Emil 07/02/2015

    Steam works fine on Windows 8, I think I've lost track of why Gabe started frothing at the mouth about it. Wasn't he claiming that it would be impossible to sell anything on Win8 (because it was a closed OS) without going through MS? That just isn't true though.
    I don't remember 100% what Gabe said and I'm not sure if he was either constantly misquoted or did indeed have no idea what he was talking about. Microsoft has always been one of the most supportive if not the most supportive companies when it comes to allowing people to program applications or games for their platform. Windows would be nowhere if it wasn't for MS' attitude towards programmers. Claiming Windows 8 would destroy the PC was absolutely ludicrous.

    The same thing goes for saying Windows 8 is disappointing because PC sales declined instead of going up. I completely agree that Windows 8 isn't something revolutionary. I like the OS a lot, it's fast and stable but operating systems in general have matured enough over the years that asking for a revolutionary OS which would make people ditch their mobile phones and tablets and go back to the PC is simply completely unrealistic.

    PC sales are declining because most people simply don't need 99% of the things Windows (or other full-fledged operating system) offers. There is just no way that even more features, regardless of how brilliant they are, will bring people back to the PC.

    That being said, competition never hurts and I think it's great what SteamOS is trying to accomplish. I'm just not sure if Valve really understands the market. The statements about Windows 8 were completely off and I'm not sure if their Steam Machine ventures have (or will) pay off either.

    Actually, it's a deflator, but that's just a small detail.

    I really enjoyed this game and occasionally get back to it. It's still fun although it can get slightly repetitive after a while because you don't really have much creative freedom once you figure out how the hospital is supposed to work. It gets kind of predictable.

    That of course doesn't mean that whenever I start it up again it's at least half of my weekend gone.

    After Burner passed me by - but I really can't wait for Outrun. It was the first arcade game I ever played. I couldn't even read back then so for years I had no idea what game I was even playing until I stumbled across it again when I started to get interested in arcade/gaming history. To this day I still don't own a copy of that game but soon, pretty much 25 years later, I'll finally be able to fill that empty slot in my games collection. Reply +2

  • Surprise! Rock Band 3 gets new DLC

  • Der_tolle_Emil 13/01/2015

    That is surprising. I was a bit sad to see them go; I really enjoyed the games and I thought that they did a brilliant job establishing Rock Band as a platform that went beyond annual releases with their option to carry over songs from old games that made the new iterations more like vast expansions instead of stand-alone releases. I'd love to see them get better licensing deals to make sure that Rock Band as a platform can continue to exist. Rock Band Network for example was never available in my region (I think).

    Ideally they would also come up with a way to create universal accessories which would allow players to switch between xbox and playstation when visiting friends. As I said, I think Rock Band already did a brilliant job of establishing itself as more of a platform than any other typical gaming series and I would love it if it came back as such. Maybe they'll jump to PC this time; Unfortunately I don't really think MS and Sony are willing to give Harmonix the freedom they need to really make it work this time.

  • Microsoft announces Forza Motorsport 6 for Xbox One

  • Der_tolle_Emil 13/01/2015

    @SeeNoWeevil It's not the driving that feels sterile, it's everything surrounding the races. Admittedly the swamp of menus has been way worse in Forza 2 for example and even though FM5 is really trying hard to build a proper bridge between racing events it still fails. The loading screens where you see the world map and where your next race will take place somehow manages to be boring after the third time you see it.

    It's difficult to me to really pinpoint what is bothering me; I guess it's just the overall balance between playtime on the track and playtime spent in menus/loading screens.

    I wish they would manage to pull off something like PGR4's career. That one just didn't get boring with a set calendar and special events that only pop up every once in a while that you could really look forward to. It had a certain flow to it that no Forza game so far has managed to offer.

  • Der_tolle_Emil 13/01/2015

    To be honest I didn't expect this so soon. I hope this game won't turn out as rushed as Forza 5 felt to me. I don't think I have spent so little time with any Forza game like with the 5th one. As usual the handling etc. was as solid as ever but the series still feels a bit pale, or rather sterile. It's just small details like loading screens that last for a minute that make it really hard to get into the zone as you are constantly getting disrupted doing any actual driving. The bugs didn't help either, I always encountered various sound bugs or the game freezing after a race (looks like it was stuck uploading my drivatar info). The lack of tracks also didn't help.

    Of course I still look forward to FM6; I'm pretty sure FM5 was just rushed to get it out at launch and considering that it wasn't so bad after all. However, to be perfectly honest, as much as I enjoy the series, if FM6 doesn't turn out to be significantly better than FM5 I think I'll pass this time - especially if Project Cars turns out to be a great game.

  • I'm not a robot: Valve adds Captcha security to Steam Trading

  • Der_tolle_Emil 12/01/2015

    I'm glad I don't trade. The two step verification really gets on my nerves because the system constantly thinks I am using my browser on a new PC and asking me for my code yet again (sometimes even 5 minutes later on the very same device); And then the mails often take ages to arrive (although it's not that bad recently in terms of waiting time).

    I know I can turn the code verification off but I do value the added security. It's just that compared to other services the one used by Valve seem slightly broken. Nevertheless, as far as trading concerns this is a good move.

  • PS4 Data Bank dock allows huge storage

  • Der_tolle_Emil 07/01/2015

    As to why Sony aren't allowing external drives: They are paranoid about security, and not without reason.
    External drives don't really pose a security risk though. If the OS can be exploited using specifically crafted data you could just put that data on the internal drive as well. It makes no difference over which bus the OS talks to the HDD.

    Exploiting any system usually involves passing data to a program which fails to validate that data correctly (or does not check it at all) and accepts it the way it is which might lead to the data overwriting parts of the memory which will get executed - that way you will get your own code into memory and trick the system to execute it.

    Where that data comes from makes no difference, an external HDD doesn't give you any more direct access to the hardware than the internal drive does.

    The ONLY thing that might make it more complicated is understanding the file system of the internal drive so you can actually modify data on it. However, there is no reason why the PS4 couldn't require external drives to use the same file system for integral data to put up that extra hurdle. That is something though that has nothing to do with the way the hard drive is connected and is already part of the operating system's security.

    I actually quite like the design of this. It definitely gives the console a retro sci-fi look. However, most of the time getting an addon like this and a cheaper 3.5 drive still adds up to more than buying a regular 2.5 drive; Unless you really, really want to get 4tb+ in there, which is probably a bit too optimistic even if the console's lifespan lasts for another 7 years.

  • The Mad Catz LYNX 9 is part controller, part Transformer

  • Der_tolle_Emil 06/01/2015

    Reminds me of what I thought when I first saw their RAT9 mice:

    A friend of mine got one he replaced with the smaller model so he gave me his RAT9 and I was quite pleasantly surprised. If you are not looking at it you really don't know that you are holding some kind of freak transformer like device in your hands, it's actually really, really comfortable and works incredibly well. I never thought it would be a good idea but really holds up well.

    Of course I doubt the positive experiences with the RAT9 will do anything about what I think of this controller's price point though...

  • Riot's ambitious plan to "optimise the internet" for League of Legends players

  • Der_tolle_Emil 06/01/2015

    Net neutrality is a myth anyway. Plenty of services and protocols are routinely limited under the guise of "traffic management" but really are throttled to make the ISPs service more attractive.
    While this is true it's still a bit different from actually allowing ISPs to deliberately cripple traffic that would cost them too much (or whatever reason they come up with). There's nothing wrong with reserving a bit of bandwidth and providing better routing for your own services. However, in these cases it is usually their own services vs. every other type of traffic, which is imho somewhat reasonable. It's not pretty but at least it "discriminates" everyone the same.

    It's a different story if you start throttling specific services like gaming, bittorrent or whatever you can think of. If I am only allowed to use 90% of their bandwidth so that their network doesn't crumble then that's fine with me - as long as I can use the 90% for whatever I want. Especially if the 90% are what they sell you (ie. you order a 100mbit line, which is the fastest they offer, even though their entire capacity would allow for 110 as well).

    It's not pretty but even as a huge defender of net neutrality this is something I can live with. I'm sure there are lots of ISPs that will still throttle individual traffic or use suboptimal routes but if that practice stays illegal customers can at least go to court (I know it's quite unrealistic but ultimately that's what this is about).

    The real problem is that being allowed to regulate traffic will completely undermine competition. It's not so much about being able to charge for preferential treatment or enabling specific services but that "honest" ISPs won't be able to compete even on paper. Any provider offering 200mbit lines because they know that - thanks to throttling services - their customers won't ever exceed using up 20mbit will look much, much better than a provider who will offer you "real" 20mbit for whatever traffic you want.

    Of course available bandwidth is already quite a fictional number that depends on a lot of factors but I could really do without tons of asterisks in the order forms along the lines of *200mbit for domestic websites, 100mbit for youtube and 10mbit for everything else.

    It's also not just the competition between ISPs that will go out of hand. One of the fundamental ideas behind web services is that it's all between the user and the people running a web service. Battling a behemoth like youtube for users is already pretty much unthinkable; Now if you add an additional hurdle of ISPs throttling traffic to your new video portal because you can't pay them to prioritize traffic then it's game over.

    Oh well, I have written WAY too much. Sorry for going off-topic :)

  • Der_tolle_Emil 06/01/2015

    That's a noble effort but I doubt it will amount to anything. Unless they will start to lay down their own network they will be reliant on a carrier like any other ISP. If there's no cable from Town A to Riot Server B they will have to get routed through country C like any other service out there.

    They might be able to skip a few hops by setting up their own VPN or even MPLS infrastructure (which I guess is their goal if I read the image correctly) but I honestly can't imagine how that will ever pay off for them - at least not on a grand scale. Dedicated access for tournaments for teams yeah, but playing ISP for 10 million people is just something I don't see working anytime soon (even though I wish it would work)

  • New Steam controller design leaked

  • Der_tolle_Emil 17/12/2014

    I know it's not a popular opinion around here, but I think Valve should give up on the hardware. Current joypads work fine
    I don't necessarily agree although I think it is definitely a bit funny that every new revision of their design looks more and more like a 360 controller.

    The thing is, I really like the 360 controller but the XBO controller managed to improve it even further so I wouldn't mind if there are companies still trying to improve controllers. I'm sure there are more than enough things that can be bettered with time although it looks like the analog sticks aren't going anywhere anytime soon.

    It would be sad, however, if noone at least tried to reinvent the wheel. Controller changes weren't as revolutionary in recent years compared to ~15 years ago when analog sticks, rumble packs and push sensitive triggers came along but who knows, there might be another revolution along the way anyway.

  • Forza Horizon 2's first expansion introduces new cars, new area

    @mushi_mush I personally wouldn't call it disappointing, I still spend several hours a week with the game (and that's with Bayonetta 2, Hyrule Warriors and Smash Bros lying right next to my WiiU waiting to get unwrapped). I am really enjoying it and it can be a great racing game but, at least for me, only as long as it stays on proper roads. There's nothing wrong with a few offroad trips on gravel/dirt roads but just plowing through fields just isn't any fun for me. I guess it also doesn't help that there's only very, very few races that do that which makes it feel like an afterthought even more.

    Other than that it's a fantastic game, you really need to up the AI difficulty though, otherwise their behavior can be a bit... well, erratic. Even though I ultimately prefer the first one (as I said, I find the scenery of the first one far more compelling) in terms of actual racing FH2 does trump the first one.

    Personally I think that the offroad parts are the weakest of the entire game, unfortunately - especially the races where you just crash through one vineyard after another. It just doesn't feel right to me. Maybe because the rest of the game is so brilliant even though I kind of prefer the location of the first one. Somehow FH2's landscape feels a bit bland, which is ironic given that FH1 was just rock, but at least it wasn't almost completely flat land all the time. Reply -17

    On a side note, given these handhelds have custom screens, wouldn't it be better for them to have more custom refresh rates? That way they could set the refresh rate at say 50 hz, and target the graphics to a constant 50 fps, which most people can't differentiate from 60 fps. Win-win.
    It would be technically possible but not very feasible in practice.

    If there's one thing that makes sense it would be to adopt some sort of G-Sync technology which would solve the display refresh rate problem completely. Having a fixed refresh rate will always be a problem regardless of what the actual rate really is. That's probably even easier to implement than having a panel which supports different fixed refresh rates.

    I played the WiiU version for an hour or so yesterday and it's very impressive on a technical level. It doesn't feel like there were any compromises in terms of visual fidelity. I don't know how the guys at Nintendo do it, but their attention to detail is simply unmatched. I wonder how much time the programmers spent with artists to get models and textures to a level that still delivers the fantastic visual presentation without making the engine crumble to its knees; Which, in an unpredictable game like Smash, must be incredibly difficult.

    @IronSoldier OutRun is a special. The feeling you get when you nail a corner is pretty much unmatched and the lack of AI opponents makes it an incredible relaxing experience. I often sit down for a quick play because the ~15 minutes it takes for a route calms me down like nothing else. I've been gaming for 25 years now and nothing comes close in that regard. Reply +3
