  • Superhot headlines Xbox's free Games with Gold for March

  • Devox 20/02/2018

    TotBD is one of the worst games/DLC of this Gen. Superhot is brilliant, QC was disappointing and Brave, well, i didn't even know that was a a thing. I'm guessing it was shite though.. Perhaps its time to dump this for MS and bundle in Gold with a version of gamepass instead? Reply 0

    @Fourfoldroot and where are the Elves and dwarves in this game????? its a bloody outrage. Surely they could have included at least one Trans Orc or lesbian Kobold in the game. Reply 0

    Actually on topic of the game, it looks as though this has been released about 3 months too early. Really could have done with some extra time in QA. Hopefully, like the Witcher 3, this will be polished up as right now there are too many technical problems on every format. Reply 0

    @danielmarian Sorry, History is not a science. There is no way to prove or disprove anything. I could theorise that Jesus Christ was a real person. The available data 'Suggests' this was not the case but, unless you were there, we can never know for certain. I mean, you'd think some bloke healing the sick and walking on water would be pretty big news yet the only accounts we have are those contained in the bible. There is no other mention in any other texts of the time. It is impossible to prove one way or the other. It is a cliche but history really is written by the victors. All we can do is piece together as much data as we can. This is particularly true about the period between 300 and 1500 AD where there is scant evidence to the historical narrative. Reply 0

    @vert1go But you are our resident Nintendo fan are you not? So how do you justify buying those racist, misogynistic Mario games? How many black or asian characters are there? Why is the only female character depicted as a helpless airhead, constantly kidnapped by the same character. Bowser is obviously depicting the black man stealing the white woman who is, in turn, defeated by the strong White male. Zelda always needs rescuing by a Blond haired white guy - obviously racist and sexist. Pokemon promotes cruelty to animals, all the enemies in Halo are Aliens, fairly obvious what their agenda is right? Why are all the protagonists of Yakuza Asian and male?????

    You see, if you're mad enough, you can be offended by, or make up something to be offended by in pretty much everything.

    Oh, and if you don't give money to Racist,sexist,homophobic etc people then you will never buy anything ever again because somewhere in that chain there will be one. Denying money to 100 people because 1 of them is an asshole leading to 99 good and decent people being made unemployed...not so black and white then is it. Once you get up on that high horse its a long way down for that humble pie.

    @MrTomFTW Thats a really weak argument. God forbid that an artist actually have an imagination. By that logic, Picasso hung around some damn strange looking women as did Van Gogh, Dali etc etc. Jesus was born and raised in the middle east yet all medieval art depicts him as white when he almost certainly was not. What I'm saying is that Art is probably the single worst 'proof' you could use. The fact is, even today, there are large areas of middle and eastern europe where you will not see anything but a white face. This is also true in huge areas of China, India, Bangladesh, South America etc where you will not see a white face. Does that make these areas inherently racist? There are still areas today where women are second class citizens (in the time period depicted here there were places where the women were third class citizens behind the livestock). History isn't very nice and the dark ages were particularly brutal. Bertie seems incapable of grasping this fact. Perhaps its best if he goes back to his no platforming safe space and make sure he only reviews 'Non-Trigger games'. Reply 0

    Case in point. If I were to create a game about where i grew up in ENGLAND in the 1980's there would be no 'People of Colour' in the game as there were none in the Village at that time. Thats over 500 years after this game is set. Now the guy that runs this studio is a complete Asshat, of that there is little doubt, but marking down a game because it IS historically accurate is a poor move. Basically Bertie, if you're going to be a SJW at least be a smart one because this makes you look like the worst kind of offended by everything snowflake with little to no grasp of the historical realities of 15th century Europe.

    I think my biggest problem here is that this is a game that does not really bear repeating. Anyone who has played it will get what I mean. If you have not played it before then this is most definitely the version to get. Just don't watch 'Lets Play's or any other crap, play it cold and spoiler free. Reply 0

  • Our latest look at Shenmue 3 shows it's on the right track

  • Devox 17/01/2018

    For those who haven't played them, they are 'Marmite' games i know as many ppl who called them shite as i do that loved them. A remaster of the first two would be very easy money for Sega (BC on XBox would be smart especially if they include the 'Movie' of episode 1). The Yakuza games are the nearest thing out there right now in structure so if you like those you'll probably enjoy this. Reply 0

  • Devox 13/01/2018

    @manujim I'd say it took Sony 4 tries given the DS3 was a step back from the DS2. The DS4 is the first one that got all the basics right (deadzones, button quality, trigger quality etc). I still prefer the asymmetrical lay out of the MS pad but the PS4 pad matches it in every other dept. Reply +3
  • Devox 13/01/2018

    I absolutely Despised it. Heavy, poor button layout and the worst D pad in the history of videogaming. But, without it we probably would never have got the 360 controller which was, and IMO still is, the best mass-market controller ever made (I've never had the Elite so cannot compare). Reply 0

  • Star Citizen, I am disappointed

  • Devox 10/01/2018

    @Comet 5 years in and the lack of actual, y'know, gameplay should be VERY worrying. Roberts has bitten off way more than he can chew. 5 years in and 1 star system up and sort of running 150 star systems means we may see it released at about the same time as we all have personal holo-decks at home!
    At this rate the money is going to run out with the game probably less than 20% finished. Eurogamer are well within their rights to say WTF are they playing at to be this content poor 5 years into development. There seems to be a massive lack of discipline at the Dev, it really needs someone to go in and set some hard boundaries for what the final game is going to be so they don't decide to add Volleyball or Killer Space Nuns etc etc.
    Ambition is great but it has to be tempered with reality at some point.

  • Devox 10/01/2018

    This has that terrible whiff of Ion Storm about it (see the last 2 PC Gamers for a fascinating article) Basically, the stupid amounts of money this generated has led to a bloated and unfocussed development. It really needs someone to step in, slap a few ppl about and cut the core down to something that can be in a finished state within 2 years. Otherwise this will lumber on and on and look crap next to whatever marvels will be around in 2023. Reply +2
  • Burnout Paradise HD reports gather pace

  • Devox 05/01/2018

    @importvita The original burnout was a bit crap to be fair, but 2 to Revenge/takedown are still as good as arcade racing has ever been (Blur and Split Second are the only other ones that readily spring to mind). But, I'd be happy to see all that gens Burnouts in a compilation like the Wipeout one. Reply 0
  • Devox 05/01/2018

    Burnout 3 or GTFO. Theres a very good reason GamesTM gave it 10 out of 10 back in the day. Paradise is more Need for Speed than actual Burnout.
    Actually, screw it, EA how about a new BURNOUT! A proper arcade racer for those of us who find the GTs and Forzas too dry.

  • Monster Hunter World gets a final PS4 beta

  • Devox 05/01/2018

    I've tried and tried to get into Monster Hunter (still have it on PS2 somewhere). That trailer is pretty cool it has to be said. I'm no Graphics Whore but i get the feeling this is a game the deserves to be played at the highest fidelity given the work that seems to have been put into it. So, I'll chip away at the backlog and wait for the PC release and give it yet another chance. Might fire up the original on PCSX2 if i can find it. Reply 0

    @man.the.king Exactly, thats why GT and Forza are on the list and Project Cars 2 is not. Sony has the bigger install base so stands to reason GT comes out on top. PC2 may well be the best of them (not a fan of serious racers, Blur is probably my favourite racer). Reply +1
  • Devox 02/01/2018

    @Foxtrot-Oscar You intimated that nothing of worth came out in 2017.
    "With any luck this year's loot box of games will present me with something worth playing!!! (Red Dead Redemption if a first person option is included... FarCry, if a demo is released allowing me to check whether they've improved the controls... otherwise... roll on 2019"
    Just pointing out if there was nothing you liked in 2017 then there will probably never again be anything you like. Your post sounded both entitled and petulant, pretty certain both Red Dead and FarCry won't be changing their design because of you wanting First Person and a demo.

    NO BattleChasers - for shame. Highly recommended to any and all JRPG fans

    Honestly didn't think my fifth choice would make it but there it is, and with my comment as well.
    Think on about the EG Top 50, I'm more convinced than ever that most of the staff only got to play around 10 games this year. Case in point, since I voted I've started Yakuza 0, Asses Oranges and Prey. Playing asses 4K 30fps Ultra on PC - God lord its a pretty game. Yakuza is the one that would probably bump into the 5, love the crunchy combat.
    But I stand by the fact the 2 hours i've enjoyed most this year was in Shadow of War.
    It also looks like the furore about Destiny 2 and ME:Andromeda was misplaced as they both feature towards the upper end. Haven't played either but maybe neither game is as bad as the rather vocal minority make out.
    No real need for a poll next year as Red Dead is likely to sweep all before it. Still hoping the original gets a makeover or at least a PC release this year.

  • Eurogamer's games of 2017: The big debate

  • Devox 31/12/2017

    Actually, it makes more sense of the top 50. Wes, as everyone knows, is a bit of a prat (FIFA better than PES every fecking year). Look at the picture, would you trust a guy with that fashion sense! Thats why FIFA/PUBG/ME:A are in there and why they are so high. Wes has no taste in games whatsoever it seems (and also may be very high himself). But thats Ok, hes far from the only one who plays just the AAA annual circus of games is he.
    Still not on board with BotW though, never grabbed me at all on WiiU (But CEMU looks like its about to make me rip it from my WiiU to PC to try again).
    Nevertheless, an excellent year full of great games in every genre from RPG and Interactive fiction to Shooters and Walking Sims.

    Happy New Year one and all.

    @SuperShinobi Except, this isn't a metacritic list, its a list by a few EG staffers who we already know have somewhat idiosyncratic tastes (Wes puts FIFA above PES EVERY year, Donlan gave starfox 2 a recommended etc etc).The majority of them i'd guess never even played Nioh/Nier/P5/Yakuza whilst they all played Mass Effect. Net result, mediocre game higher than great games. Reply +8

    @richyroo might be a better idea to trust yourself. Surely you should know what YOU do or do not like. These end of year lists are always skewed by the fanboys who will only vote for platform exclusive titles regardless of whether they actually enjoyed them or not. Reply +2
  • Devox 28/12/2017

    As I said yesterday, FIFA over PES coz Wes is an idiot, Nintendo in 6 of the top 10 places as Oli and Donlan are Nintendo Fanboys and some unknown arty bollocks from Edwin.
    Anyone who has frequented the site should know the personal preferences of the staffers by now. Mass Effect is on the list as it was probably played by everyone whilst the niche PS4 stuff quite obviously wasn't. So if every staffer had to select a top 10, Mass Effect would be in most of the lists as they probably didn't play much more than 10 games all year, that's the nature of these lists. The reader top 50 will see the PS4 exclusives much higher up as it has the largest user base.

    Having said that, if Starfox 2 is anywhere on this list you should all resign in shame.

    @---___--- You know exactly what you'll get from Kojima, A great game with rock solid mechanics wrapped up in a story with writing so bad it would embarrass a 4 year old. That describes every game he's released. David Cage is the only writer I can think of who is worse than Kojima, but, unlike Kojima, he's yet to release a decent game. Reply 0
  • Devox 27/12/2017

    Surely most ppl have been around the site long enough to know how this pans out. Nintendo for the win and runner up and bronze and probably 4th and 5th as well. 3 diehard Ninty fans on the staff, 1 of whom is also editor in chief makes it fairly easy to forecast each year. Wes is a FIFA fan so that nearly always ends up higher than PES.
    The only mystery is the order. Botw/Mario/Arms/Kart/Xenoblade would be my guess. Just no Starfox 2 for the love of God.
