    God this a depressing comments section. EG gave it a recommended review because, and this might shock some of you, Oli played it and enjoyed it. A lot of people disagree and thats only natural but to decry him and say he is wrong is ignorant and downright stupid.
    Also, now i'm in rant mode, why should every game feature the same damn mechanics. someone wanted boss fights for chuffs sake because they work so well in all genres (Human Revolution says hello). Also, moaning about the price? at what point did an indie game have to be given away? If price is tied to the length of a game how come Tomb Raider and Uncharted were not 9.99 given both can be rinsed in 15 hours? I've played Sproggiwood longer than either of them so should that indie game be 59.99.

    Personally i would not quite have given it a recommended badge because of its technical limitations and design decisions that hampered my enjoyment (one word - Inventory)but i've thoroughly enjoyed my 30 hours pottering about. I didn't follow all the hype that surrounded it and if i had then, yes, i would have been less than happy with the finished product which is why there are a lot of pissed gamers out there who thought they were getting a mix of Midwinter/Space Rogue and Mercenary. That's the problem with hype, you nearly always end up disappointed. Mercenary - now theres a game ripe for a rebirth. Stranded on one planet with one objective and multiple ways of doing it. If you're under 35 look it up as it was as important as Elite but seems to have been forgotten which is criminal.

    @321- I'm a backer and i have no problem at all with this. Much like Divinity its not dumbing down a game by making it playable using a controller. Thats just BS. Besides it still plays with M+K. Why would you not want this to get to as much of the gamer-base as possible? Reply +8
  • Take a tour of Resident Evil 7's disturbing new demo

  • Devox 23/08/2016

    @Crazy-MadBob You're right. its an original title being retro-actively fitted into the RE brand. I can se why they would do this as brand awareness of RE is very high. But a fan of 4/5/6 or the movies will almost certainly not find what they want from what we have seen so far. Reply -3
  • Devox 23/08/2016

    The first demo i thought was terrific but had literally nothing to do with Resident Evil. I think a lot of modern RE fans (they are out there) will pretty much hate it but fans of Amnesia/Alien Isolation and outlast will already be stocking up on the man-size pampers. Reply +3
  • One of the Vita's prettiest puzzle games is getting an ambitious remake

  • Devox 23/08/2016

    Handheld gaming in general is not much of a feature on EG (Pokemon bloody go excluded). Brutal as it may be but the Vita crowd left are niche gamers playing niche games. I know i'm one of them. It is a shame they don't cover at least some of those titles but the fact is the vast majority no longer care and there is little revenue to be had from covering it. Reply 0

  • Here's what No Man's Sky's PC patches have fixed

  • Devox 23/08/2016

    I'm still getting memory leaks after a couple of hours. Becomes unplayable after that. Going to fire it up tonight for another wander. It may not be the grand space opera a lot of ppl thought it would be but I find it weirdly relaxing trying to learn Gek.
    Did Hello games over-reach - absolutely and their PR was misguided at best and flat out lying at worst. What they gave us is certainly not for everyone it will be this years marmite game and will almost certainly top someones best of the year and someones worst.
    Did they still release a great game, in my opinion yes but then I'm old enough to be rated Elite on BBc B and C64. I spent countless hours flying around a jerky wire-frame universe so this on a 4K screen is whay my 10 year old self could only dream of.

    I've recently splashed out on a 4K monitor & GTX1080 (first nvidia card in a decade). Currently loving the Witcher 3 (which is bloody enormous and brilliant) Then its back to Dunwall which is an extraordinary gameworld. Dishonored 2 is shaping up to be a game of the year contender and a definite day 2 purchase (just in case we get a borked PC version). Reply +6

  • Devox 12/08/2016

    @man.the.king How dare you enjoy this game. This comments thread is terrifiyingly negative towards the game. I think there may have been an Xbox fanboi invasion or is it just that it could never really live up to the ridiculous amounts of hype that surrounded it. I was going to pick it up on PC tonight but the Steam forums are awash with perforfance and stability issues. Shame but i'll leave it until it has been patched up as 22FPS on a 1080 is just wrong.

  • Yes, Final Fantasy 15 has a season pass

  • Devox 03/08/2016

    Again, it depends on what your extra outlay actually gets you. Witcher 3 had a 20 pass but offered around 40 Hours of extra, brilliant content. I'll pay for that and I'm happy to pay that. If FF15 offers something similar then thats fine. But this is SQENIX who infamously walled of the ending of FF13-2 behind DLC. That was a dick move so big it would have made a sperm whale jealous!
    So i'm hoping that the 3 "Episodes" are 3-4 hours of say prequel story on how the Band met Simon Cowell who persuaded them to go on the Goth Ponce Tour and the big DLC is the story of how this worlds Cid got hit over the head so many times that she forgot how a bloody zip works.

  • Activision battles to fix Marvel Ultimate Alliance's troubled ports

  • Devox 03/08/2016

    Another lazy, cynical cash grab. Firstly, who the hell is buying games from 2 generations back at 30? They were hardly stellar efforts in the first place. It's the fanboy sub-culture again is the only reason that they are selling Marvel branded hack N slashers.
    Plus, its all well and good that Steam users can get a refund but what about Console owners? Is there provisin for refunds of Digitally bought products on PSN/XBL if they are not fit for purpose?

  • What the heck is Darksiders: Warmastered Edition

  • Devox 28/07/2016

    One of those under-rated games from the last gen. A Zelda/God of War hybrid that looked good and played well. A sub 15 price tag as well. Its about 20 hours long if memory serves so you would certainly get your moneys worth. Reply +3
  • NX is different, and different is Nintendo's best option

  • Devox 28/07/2016

    @Fourfoldroot If the base unit had a GTX 1060 in it then things would be interesting. The handheld would be basically a VITA level machine but plugging it into the base unit would be much like normal PC games and the Low settings for the handheld could become High settings via the base unit. Reply +3
  • Devox 28/07/2016

    Blimey, the Trolls are getting fed today!

    If this is a single screen handheld i'm guessing it could also not be a touchscreen display. With cheap CPU/GPU parts as well and a docking station that could just be an upscaler to the TV this could legitimately be priced around the 150 mark. At that pricepoint it may have a chance. They are going to rely heavily on the Japanese Market in the first instance and then their disturbingly loyal western fanbase (of which a few of the frothing nutter types regularly crop up on here). It needs 2 key things. Legacy support of their back catalogue and a decent launch lineup.

  • Nintendo NX is a portable console with detachable controllers

  • Devox 26/07/2016

    @grassyknoll But that makes nintendo something of an irrelevance to the rest of the world. I'd rather not see a Nintendo that just looks inwards. Or maybe start developing for the other consoles? If they agree that they are not in direct competition then they could develop console only titles whilst still developing other titles for their hybrid machine. I'd certainly buy a new metroid prime trilogy utilising the "proper" home consoles whilst they also develop something that fits the NX. Reply +1
  • Devox 26/07/2016

    @PlugMonkey How old are you? NES/SNES/N64 and Gamecube all had major 3rd party support. It only tailed off when they started naming their consoles after bodily fluids. Japanese game development is in terminal decline. Nintendo are one of the few who can still sell titles in the 100 of thousands>millions. They have become niche when they did not have to. If the NX had enough oomph to play what the 60 million XB/PS4 gamers want then the 3rd party support would come because, as you have demonstarted, there is a core fanbase that will buy a nintendo console regardless of specs and software line-up. If EA thought they could turn a profit on a nintendo console they would develop for it. Reply +2
  • Devox 26/07/2016

    @grassyknoll So you think nintendo is opting out of the rest of the world to focus just on Japan? That would make prudent business sense but does sort of preclude the rest of us. Reply +3
  • Devox 26/07/2016

    @PlugMonkey well, actually its both. But you need to not be a frothing fanboy to understand which appears to rule you out of the conversation. By the way, how are things at Nintendo UK? Reply 0
  • Devox 26/07/2016

    So, if it is using the Tegra X1 and, lets say a cheap, non touch screen 800x600 display and the Dock is just an upscaler as a base unit they could potentially push this out at less than 150. Then it may have a chance of survival. But anything over that and you ARE competing with MS & Sony regardless of form factor. Perhaps it comes with a roll of Duct tape so you can strap it on and have VR as well?????? Reply 0
