  • Saying goodbye to my favourite game

  • Devox 24/06/2016

    I remember selling this in the late 90's, still have loads of these in the attic i think. Loved the artwork. Used to run tournaments of this in the last century....god i feel old. Reply 0

    @vert1go Yeah, they over-rated Wii Sports. 4/10 at best. They've always over rated Nintendo games. Reply 0

    @ahrmon Please leave this site. Go to a MS only site with the rest of your tinfoil hat wearing brethren. Horse armour is the single most well-known idiot DLC in history. It has nothing to do with your supposed anti-MS EG conspiracy. Reply +4
  • Why Mass Effect: Andromeda won't acknowledge your ME3 ending choice

  • Devox 20/06/2016

    I really hope thet're brave with this. I want to play the bad guy. We are invading another galaxy. We are the reapers, or more fittingly, Space Nazis bringing our brand of Civilisation whether the indigenous life forms want it or not. I know its too risky for AAA development but its somewhere videogames rarely go. Tyranny will probably scratch the be a bast itch. Reply +1
  • Skyrim remastered: PS4, Xbox, PC, mods and everything we know

  • Devox 20/06/2016

    @Fourfoldroot Oblivion modded on PC to remove the stupid levelling and generally make it more 'RPG-y' is superb. Also theres a Mod called Nerim which is a complte new game which i think is better than the base game. I do love the modders and think its a brilliant idea for it to be implemented on Consoles.

    Why is the new look so yellow? They are messing with the whole aesthetic of the game.
    Unfair on the Console only crowd i have to say. I guess they think there are a lot of new gamers out there who never played this. If you haven't it is totally worth 50 as it is one of the best RPGs ever made. But for the rest I would just hold fire for a month or two and the price will tumble to whre most of this gens remasters are, 20-25. I picked up the Complete edition on PC for 8 but never played the DLC. Might be time to play a new character build.

  • No Man's Sky studio settles "secret, stupid" three-year Sky lawsuit

  • Devox 20/06/2016

    I'm sorry but i've just trademarked the alphabet. I will now sue 70% of the worlds population if they EVER write again.
    In any sane society, the trademarking of a commonplace word like SKY or THANKYOU should be met by the deafening sound of laughter swiftly followed by firing squad for the squalid little shyster that tried it on.

  • Microsoft's mixed messages at E3 aren't pretty for Xbox One owners

  • Devox 16/06/2016

    @Pete207 I guess it depends on how you play. If you are in the FIFA/COD crowd then console only gaming still makes sense as thats where the biggest communities are. I have always played FiFA/Madden on console myself with one crowd but play MMOs with another crowd. Reply 0
  • Devox 16/06/2016

    @M-D-S I would be incredibly surprised if Scorpio launches with the full 'PC' Windows 10. Enough functionality to run games hassle free. One things for sure, they HAVE to get their message across better than they have managed this gen. Reply +1
  • Devox 16/06/2016

    @Pete207 I've been PC gaming for 24 years. Current PC gaming is breathtakingly simple. It's an utter fallacy that PC gaming is a hassle. In fact its usually spouted by someone who has never gamed on PC at all. Reply 0
  • Devox 16/06/2016

    @M-D-S Although the X1 is being considered a failure, it has still shifted some 20 million consoles. You can build a robust business model around sales of 20 million and if they get the marketing right they could sell far more scorpios. 4k versions of Forza or Halo will look a generation up from what we see currently. There a a lot of similarities to the Xbox>360 which worked out very well for them. Reply +3
  • Devox 16/06/2016

    The smart thing for MS here is to finally allow OPTIONS in console games, y'know like we PC gamers have had for the last 20 years. Nothing too complicated because we don't want to confuse the console kiddies but, just some basics, much like the alpha of NIOH had on PS4. so you get the option of 1080/60 or 4K/30 (which is still going to be a stretch even with the specs they have released). So all the old XB1 games fly along at 1080/60 or 4K/30. Keep the entire eco-system backwards compatible so you have a huge range of titles from the off. The XB1 is the first major console i've not bought since the Atari Jag and the E3 presentation means i won't be getting one OR the Scorpio. But as a PC/PS4 current gamer i'm in a win/win situation. AMDs new card could be a real game changer with 400-500 PCs having more than enough grunt to run all the console games at 1080/60. Scorpio is almost certainly going to bw an iteration of that card so they "could" conceivably get the Scorpio out for 400-450. Traditional console gamers will buy at that price and we could see a repeat of the success of the 360. Reply -1
  • Hours of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild gameplay footage from E3

  • Devox 15/06/2016

    @mega-gazz The first thin Nintendo need is a console that has at least parity with the current-gen. Make it easy to program and publishers will be more likely to support it. Make it another under-powered machine that only 1st party devs can use and, well, we've seen what happens.
    AMD's new cards offer decent power at low prices. $200 retail for the 480. Base your machine on that and you have enough power to exceed the current-gen machines. Get it out to market at $300-$350 and you should get a decent enough user base for 3rd party titles to be more than viable. Then join in the whole 'remastered' crap we've been slogging through on PS4 & XB1. Re-release Wii and WiiU titles onto the machine in shinier forms. Hell, go one further and tap into the gamecube catalogue - Metroid Prime, Sunshine, Skies of Arcadia etc etc.

    I like the fact that the world looks like it will be quite interactive.
    However, combat looks weak and the area shown is graphically very uninteresting. Open world games need a level of technology that the WiiU lacks. In places this looks like a PS2 title (DQ8 in particular springs to mind).
    Frankly, this looks large, empty and dull. I guess if you are a one Console gamer this is something that is incredibly rare on Nintendo platforms. Only the Xenoblade titles offer a similar level of freedom.

  • The E3 bulletin: Wednesday

  • Devox 15/06/2016

    @sarabloem Maybe, but i still can't see it being anything like the original reveal. The smart play would have been to abandon the WiiU build & concentrate on the NX version (assuming the NX is a much more powerful machine). In its current form it lacks the 'Wow' factor and i can't see it being a system seller. Reply 0
  • Devox 15/06/2016

    Just watched a huge chunk of Zelda footage and at no point did the word Beautiful enter my head. PS2 did quite often though as did Ni No Kuni and Xenoblade. It also seems to share a lot of DNA with Horizon
    I did not see anything that hasn't been done to death in other openworld/MMO games.
    Yep, no prizes as to the most disappointing game of E3 for me.

  • Resident Evil 7 announced for PS4 and PlayStation VR

  • Devox 14/06/2016

    I think general concensus is that, whilst this may turn out to be a very good game, it is not Resident Evil. Are developers really that scared to create new IPs that they shoehorn their games into existing franchises? This and God of War in particular look like thay are hanging new games on old names. In doing so you shackle yourself to old mechanics and expectations. Its also bizarre given that the last games in both franchises were bloody awful (RE6 and ascension). Reply 0

    You have to applaud EA for at least trying something different. Their boxing game from last-gen had a pretty decent story if memory serves. I just hope theres an option after being dropped and told you have no future at the club that you can shoot Jose. Eva caneiro will be buying it for sure! Reply +5
  • Telltale's Batman reveals first screenshots

  • Devox 13/06/2016

  • We don't know why Sony's making PS4K, but there are plenty of reasons it shouldn't

  • Devox 11/06/2016

    I do hope Sony don't call it 4K as thats a whole lot of misleading unless they unveil 4K Pac-man, space invaers and galaga. If someone buys the console under the impression they can play the Witcher at native 4K they are going to be in for a massive disappointment.
    Far more sensible to call it Playstation 4VR edition. It#s the only reason i would pick one up and then there is likely to be an XBOX one Rift edition as well (which i really need to see to believe given the PC requirements). My money is on MS actually going Next-Gen and announcing XBOX TWO for 2017.

    @rep- So, you're potentially going to drop 800+ on 2 new consoles that will still be a full generation behind a PC that would cost about the same? That REALLY makes no sense. A 480 powered PC will be far more poweerful, run 1000s of games including pretty much every console up to PS2 (PS3 is proving to be a bugger unsurprisingly). Reply +3

  • Devox 31/05/2016

    @Fourfoldroot Sonys fault mind, when it started they were giving away AAA and AA games like the old covertape days in the late 80's (yep i'm old). I'm surprised its 2K16 and not 2K15 to be honest especially as we have been expecting Knack and Killzone to have been on the service by now Reply +1
  • Devox 31/05/2016

    @AgentDaleCooper Just because you don't like the line-up doesn't mean its crap. Echochrome and Siren are excellent games and the 2 PS4 titles are top of the tree in their respective fields review wise. I'll certainly be trying out 2K16 even though it's a sport i don't follow because, y'know, its a game which i might love. Yes i might also hate it but at least i get the chance to find out. Reply +11

    Given the rift needs a 970/R9 290 level GPU to work that would be quite a jump in power for these Mid-Term Machines. In fact, that would suggest that this may well be a 'Next-Gen' machine in all but name. If they keep it backwards compatible to both the One and the 360 then you have a massive back catalogue of games from day one.

    I think this years E3 could be very interesting.

    Sony just cannot rely on them to produce games in a timely manner and petrolheaded console gamers have far more options these days.

    There certainly seems to be a lot of love for the PC from Japanese developers recently. Far too many great games being forgotten to the mists of time. Kudos to MS for getting BC up and running on Xone. Hoping to see Sony and Nintendo follow suit (i have a feeling NX could be all about the back catalogue).
