  • 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?

    @aros The VITA is the most exiting system in gaming? With a release schedule that makes the WII U look healthy? It's a lovely piece of Kit but that comment is just misguided. Reply 0

    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

    @The_shlaaaag_returns No they won't. Yet another Mario Kart will not kick start the sales neither will another mario. The Industry is growing up and nintendo has to move with the times. To use a film analogy, whilst sony and MS are showing full colour talking movies nintendo are showing metropolis. Yes it might be great but it certainly isn't the future Reply -1
  • BioShock Infinite ending explained

  • Devox 06/04/2013

    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
  • The Hall of Heroes: BioShock Infinite's Fort Frolic?

  • 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. Anyone have any theories of the significance of the neck pendant you choose for Liz??? Reply +5

    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.

  • Devox 20/02/2013

    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.

    N game should take 6 years to make, nearly every game with that sort of gestation period has been a massive let down.

  • Devox 07/02/2013

    @dogmanstaruk Thing is, I've played Monster Hunter on PS2 and PSP. I've played Ocarina, Majora and WindWaker. I've played Mario Kart. Nintendo have a reputation for being first class games designers. What was the best game on WII - Mario Galaxy. recognizable character in innovative enviroment. Thats what i want from WIIU. Throw out 5 or 6 games like that and i'm buying, even at 300 quid. Reply +2
  • Devox 07/02/2013

    Is there really any point in buying a WiiU at the moment? Some shonky ports of old games, another 2D Mario and a Zobie game. Nintendo need to think fast before their window of opportunity shuts. 1 year start guys, have to make that count or its off to join the Dreamcast. In fact this is starting to Mirror Segas disastrous final entry in the Hardware market. Nintendo needs 1st party games yesterday and something other than Zelda rehash 8 and Mario Kart 67. It needs innovation and fresh IP to go with the usual Ninty lineup. Sega thought they could win with their arcade ports only and that cost them as Sony & MS delivered deeper and fresher experiences. Nintendos only hope is the Big 2 haven't got a solid games selection at launch and are pricing above the 400 mark or this could be the last hardware we see from them. I prefer choice so i'd rather see 3 companies pushing each other to excell but i do fear for Nintendo if they don't capitalise on the next 6 months. Reply +4

  • Devox 16/01/2013

    The NRA are, unfortunately, unbelievably powerful within the US Political system. Obama will lose his entirely sensible Gun Reform bill because the NRA have so many on Capitol Hill on their payroll. The only people who need automatic weapons are the Military but it is a huge money-spinner in the good ole US. There is also that part of their Constitution that states "the right to bear arms" which makes any radical amendments incredibly difficult to pass. Personally i hope the NRA manages to get Everyone armed, it will certainly help with population control in the US. Reply +4
