  • Your free August Xbox Live Games with Gold are...

  • DjFlex52 26/07/2016

    @SegaBlueSky

    It's an advertised part of the service without paying extra so it's free to me.
    Why do you care? And if you don't care, why are you posting about it? I call it free and you can call it better value. Case closed :)

    Edit: I will continue to call it free too. And you have no vested interest in what I think.

    Except they are. Because when I first bought Xbox Live I wasn't getting any complimentary games and so....now that I am getting free retail games, it's a bonus. And you don't pay for bonuses.

    Well, since I've had xbox live almost a decade and I wasn't going to ever buy these games and I get to play them now...they are free, capeesh?.
    And I don't care what Sony or MS says...only you do ;)

  • Squad goals: Returning to The Division

  • DjFlex52 02/07/2016

    @matthewfrench

    I agree with you again. :)

    Remember, The Division has only been out a few months. As I said earlier, Destiny & Diablo 3 took almost a year and it's not so easy for devs to comply with feedback.

    Diablo 3's story is as good/bad as Destiny and Division.

    @matthewfrench

    I totally agree. And Destiny took a while to get better too. For Diablo 3, it took over a year for Blizzard to fix it. These games aren't so easy for devs to accomplish their goals like some people think it should.

    Maybe I'm biased because I enjoy all 3 games for what they are. :)

    @frozentoast

    So it's fine to take forever to beat Perdition in Diablo and Vatch in Destiny but 3 magazines to beat a heavy armored Joe Ferro is Tom Clancy's fault? All 3 games are essentially online RPGs and that means a lot of grinding and trying to get better loot.

    Edit: And all RPGs are repetitive!

    Just like Diablo 3 too. It's all up to your own preference of liking similar but different gameplay. Why there are haters for all 3 games is beyond me? Just play something else if you don't like it. :)

    Edit: There are still a lot of people who enjoy these games and will continue to.

    People always use the "I own an Xbox" tagline when they are called out on their obvious bias.

    You and I both know that there are more guaranteed exclusive titles than just Halo, Forza & Gears but you wrote it anyway.

    Neither of us were referring to physics in our initial comments.
    Your first comment..."ONE game looking like this back then with such rich environments."
    And I said..."Uncharted".
    What does physics have to do with it?
    And why are you so concerned about my singular opinion about "your" TLG? ;)

    I guess we'll get a review now that it's coming to PS4. Not a peep from EG about the game as it's only been on Xbox One & Steam for 8 months.

    And now that it's coming to PS4, it will probably be recommended too...lol

    I've noticed no complaints about the multitude of DS3 articles on EG lately compared to when Destiny, Witcher 3 & Division were released.

    ...negs and rebuttals are happily accepted. Though if you do, you're EG sheep.

  • 1979 Revolution review

  • DjFlex52 12/04/2016

    Didn't say that at all. I just said reviewers will be even more bored of reskin games than the majority of gamers. They are generally older, have played these games for longer than many, and play as their job.

    @Fourfoldroot

    Again you're making excuses for reviewers. Certain AAA games shouldn't be recommended to the public because reviewers play too many games and are bored. EG doesn't have scores so that's irrelevant. Though on Metacritic ROTR - 86, Division - 80 & Quantum Break - 79 suggests they are good not great games. Good games shouldn't be recommended now but niche games should?
    I'm a real DJ who's been listening to great music and mediocre music every day for over 20 years. If I ever get bored of it, I would leave the music business. If you are bored playing and writing about video games....GTFO! For all these games you say reviewers are playing, they sure are reluctant about writing reviews for them. EG barely gets ONE review in a week. Between Steam, PS+ & Xbox Indie games, there are at least 10 new games a week.

    I also beg to differ about your statement with regards to originality & challenge cut significantly in video games. There's too much elitism and negativity in video games culture nowadays. I wish these were cut significantly :)

    @Fourfoldroot

    So you're saying that because AAA developers want more people to buy their game, they have to have a different barometer for being critiqued compared to niche challenging games.

    That shouldn't be in a game reviewer's head while playing a game. That wasn't in the reviewer's head while playing a game 5 years ago.
    Games aren't made for reviewers who need a challenge. They are made for everyone and they are made as entertainment. :)

    We are starting to crave something new. Or even just a pallet cleanser...I wouldn't be so excited for the new ratchet and clank if it hadn't been over a decade since I played one.

    @Fourfoldroot

    I understand this but at the same time, From Software can release 3 games in 3 years and they are all Essential. I've been playing games for over 25 years and you can categorize every game as a "reskin".
    I'm thankful I don't rely on "professional" reviewers for my game purchases :)

    @Fourfoldroot

    Hey, I didn't say reviewers had to give glowing reviews of those games but are they not worth recommending? 1979 Revolution was reviewed as a Telltale type game with quite a few rough spots and still got a recommended. Also, they gave DS3 an Essential which is a "reskin". To defend reviewers for not recommending a good game is just as bad.

    EG is so bizarre, nowadays.

    They can recommend this game but shrugged at and can't recommend ROtTR, The Division or Quantum Break, which I've all played and enjoyed. o.O

    People are moving on already, and once DS3 is out in the West The Division will be a ghost town.
    @scuffpuppies

    I don't know what makes you think that. Dark Souls is still a game with limited popularity besides the glowing adoration from reviewers. Not one Dark Souls game or Bloodborne has sold past 2 million copies while we know The Division is way past that mark. What makes you think gamers who really enjoy The Division are the same gamers who like playing Dark Souls games?

    Most of my titles I posted have no review on EG. And if they reviewed a game 2 years ago on a different platform, wouldn't you think there were added features? We'll never know since they seldomly review indie games. We got "Life Is Strange" Ep. 1 and none of the other episodes.

    I remember when EG used to review almost all the games: indie and AAA.

    Another PS4 indie review from EG but reviewing Airmech Arena, Project Root, Nero, Lifeless Planet, The Swapper, Castlestorm, Quantum Rush, The Fall, So Many Me, Tembo, Magic Duels & Beatbuddy in the last 3 months on XBOX One is forbidden, I guess. Even if they suck, we'd like to know.

    EG hyped up E3 2014's indie game revival and then have ignored it for the most part in the last 2 years, especially on the Xbox One.

    What has happened to EG? I thought they reviewed all types of console games here.

    I wonder why Horizon Zero Dawn by Guerrilla didn't warrant the same scrutiny as Platinum is getting considering Guerrilla's track record and them never having made an action rpg before either. Horizon's protaganist has that generic orphan boy vibe which bores me. Guerrilla's average Metacritic score for its games is 75....hits and misses abound. Reply +5

    Destiny had many articles because people read them and it was the biggest game of 2014. That didn't stop the horde from lambasting EG for writing them.

    My first post is inconsequential in the scheme of things. It didn't make anyone read this article. All it will show is that the bias in the comments section is out of control by the response to my post.
