  • Two discs "wasn't practical" for Halo: Master Chief Collection

  • Devox 21/10/2014

    Why does every article have this idiotic, rabid, fanboy nonsense in the comments. Eurogamer did an article about how they hoped that gamergate wasn't taken to be how gamers are seen but any normal person reading the comments would say..well actually gamers are a bunch of mal-adjusted ego-centric nutters.
    Are we really this pathetic?
    If Halo 5 only runs after a human sacrifice then Skippy and Rooster would 'still' defend it.
    If uncharted 4 needs you to be a paid up member of I.S to run I bet ironsoldier and vizzi would start learning Arabic.
    Here's a newsflash. These giant, corporate monsters are just that... Giant Corporate monsters. One lives in Japan and one lives in the US and NEITHER of them gives a toss about you.
    Oh, and before the nintentards start up. NEITHER DO NINTENDO.

    Like most ppl, the PS3 experience is still fresh in the mind. I have a feeling this will pop up as a freebie on PS+ in about 6 months time. Reply -2
  • Five talking points from the weekend's Destiny beta

  • Devox 21/07/2014

    Didn't pre order but was lucky enough to get a BETA key. Played on PS4.
    Firstly its a very good looking game. There is a wonderful sense of decay and a sort of post apocalyptic vibe. The abandoned Launch towers that dominate the skyline of Old russia, the urban decay of rusted vehicles and long abandoned installations are a joy to explore.

    There is no getting around the fact that this feels and plays very much like Halo. The weapons have a heft to them, the movement is weighty and the opposition all look very familiar. The MMO part is a little undercooked in the Beta but that could be rectified in the final product. I'd like to see a greater range of weaponry and equipment.

    All in all i played around 6 hours for free and enjoyed it considerably. I dont think it will be a pre-order for me but i will pick it up somewhere between Dragon Age and Witcher 3. If you enjoy shooters there is an awful lot to recommend here.

  • What's in the Destiny beta?

  • Devox 17/07/2014

    Bungie/Sony - What the hell were you thinking. Perhaps this will be the kick up the backside sony needs to sort their online infrastructure out. No code for me yet but seeing as the whole thing is buggered I'm not so annoyed.

    Give MS some credit. Never had this problem once on my 360.

  • Xbox One dev kits receive more GPU bandwidth

  • Devox 05/06/2014

    So, for the sane ppl here(and judging by the comments that isn't many). Any extra juice would bewelcome and *may* make the XB1 games look better. But, for pitys sake, don't let this descend into another Sony fanboy willy waving contest. I know you had to put up with the MS fanboys willy waving for 95% of the last gen but you should all have GROWN UP by now..... Actually, heres a thought. Any of you fanboys members of Parliament? Its surely the only profession that would have you (skippy is a Tory, Nego is Labour and Ivan is Lib) Reply +2

  • PlayStation 4 gives up to 5GB of RAM to game developers

  • Devox 27/07/2013

    Heres a wild idea for ALL you rabid willy waving fanboys out there. Lets wait and see what the games look and play like in a couple of months time...then make a decision, based on those games and the release schedule, as to which consoles the one for you. Its a radical idea i know and i fully expect to get negged by both sets of morons and the PC elitists for not including them and the WIIU nutjobs because all the world really needs is more Mario and Zelda.

  • Microsoft names next free game for Xbox 360 Gold subscribers

  • Devox 02/07/2013

    Its a free game, and free is free. And it should be pointed out that sonys online component is still lagging behind MS (why if i download a game do i then have to patch it?). But for a 40 outlay the PS+ service is terrific value for money and it covers both the PS3 and the Vita (Ibought a vita on the back of the games being offered on PS+). They said that the 40 would also cover the PS4.
    Oh and to the Fanbois..why? why stick up for one multinational conglomerate over another?

    Now, MS need to have this on Xbone as well as keeping the service running on 360. I'm still not convinced by either console right now as i wasn't overly impressed by anything at E3. Leaning more towards Sony but I'm looking forward to the Digital Foundry head to heads. Reply 0

  • Miyamoto blames Wii U launch software delays on Nintendo's leap to next-gen

  • Devox 12/06/2013

    @madeinbeats Nope, read the whole thing, 2nd paragraph is an irrelevance as saying its for another thread is patently ridiculous. This thread became about the other consoles because of the use of the term 'Next-Gen'. WiiU isn't Next Gen its an evolution of the original Gamecube architecture and is comperable to the existing 360/PS3. Nothing on show here looks better than Last of Us on PS3 or Halo 4 on 360. Miyamotasan should not be the guy having to apologise for nintendos blinkered attitude. Reply +3

  • Nintendo retreats into its shell at E3

  • Devox 12/06/2013

    I think we now know the reason why Nintendo didn't do the traditional Press Conference, they didn't have enough to fill a 2 hour presentation. Come on if I had a new Fzero, Zelda, Mario/Kart, Starfox, X, Bayonetta, 101, Metroid, sin and punishment, fire emblem all coming out in the next year (with a 75-100 Price cut) i'd be up there going toe to toe with MS and sony.
    I'm just so disappointed by the attitude of Nintendo thus far. They seem to think that a few new games a year will be enough to sell the console and that an HD remake of a game that honestly doesn't need it in Wind Waker constitutes the Zelda game the Fans want to see.

    Nintendo MUST TRY HARDER.

  • Devox 12/06/2013

    @todohogar Thats the nintendo dilemma, making the U attractive to the vast userbase that uses the Wii on a casual basis. Why upgrade? At the moment there is no reason to upgrade hence the poor early sales. The central gimmick of the controller is also a screen has already been trumped by Sony saying the Vita will do the same thing and Microsoft will push smartglass in that direction as well. Reply +2
  • Devox 12/06/2013

    @Kami Have to disagree there. Just think what would happen if they revealed Wii U Today after all the next gen hullabaloo from Sony and MS. No, Nintendo sent it out a year too late. With an extra year in circulation they would have had 2 years of visual parity with Sony & MS and would now be into the second generation of softwarewhich is traditionally when the good stuff happens. It would then have the installed userbase required for 3rd party publishers to see it as a viable platform. It hasn't got the casual pleasing gimmick of the WII to fall back on and it needs far more than Kart 8, Zelda 6HD and Mario 1,078. Reply 0

    How many videogames generate this level of discussion? This is probably the most intelligent thread on EG. No Fanboys makes such a difference. My question is why am i the only one who uses the vigours? They are left lying around all over columbia but none of the factions seem to use them. Also, right at the start of the game as you wake up on Columbia, did anyone else notice that ALL the NPCs are luteces? Reply +1

  • Devox 31/03/2013

    @yeahetc Given that most of the vigours are picked up in the street i was also a little dissapointed i was the only jacked up person in the game. Also a big pat on the back to irrational for none of the pre release stuff actually appearing in the game. Ghost Mom was a little lame. But the EG was wrong. its all about the Luteces'. I felt that much like the Booker/Comstock dichotomy, the two Luteces were the same person from morally opposed realities, hence the constant experiments.

    Game Length, that old chestnut. I'd rather play 5 hours of something inventive and fun than, say, the single player section of the last 3 CODs.
    But this ones easy. DOWNLOAD THE DEMO. Personally it left me a little cold so Its not a full price purchase for me. I didn't like Vanquish either but thought Bayonetta was Phenomenal.

    Last Guardian is going to be a massive disappointment. NO game needs 6 years to make unless there are serious issues - ALiens:Colonial Marines, DNF, Heart of Darkness, GT5 all spring thing to mind ( 2 Gearbox Games). and for older readers Dungeon Master 2, Stonekeep. Protracted development is never a good thing.
    Tonight needs to be 15% Hardware and Tech Guff 85% GAMES. Because thats what we really want (Fanboys excluded of course). Very interesting to see if BUNGIE are coding for PS4. Oh and lets not get too excited about MotorStorm and Killzone given the last ones were both awful. Would much prefer to see some new IP from both studios. Fallout 4? Given Bethesdas track record this gen I would be VERY surprised if this was a Launch Title.

    If it Launches this year(unlikely in Europe I fear) Then you can Guarantee a few titles (EA Sports, COD) But I really want to see some NEW titles. Paid for Online Subs is almost certainly going to happen but as long as it keeps the ideals from PS+ thats OK (Free games on a NEW Console aint gonna happen for a year at least so it needs Back Compat and a continued Free game or 2 per month)

    Then the ball is most certainly in Microsofts Court. If the PS4 is as powerful as the supposed specs then MS have an immediate problem in their Games looking inferior (a role reversal from this Gen). They will need more than in-built Kinect to wow the Hardcore and certainly need to re-think their online structure which went from best in class to embarrasing in the 7 years of its life.
