  • No Man's Sky's first post-launch patch is out now

    @PlugMonkey

    A procedurally generated game isn't ambitious since there are loads of those too.

    What HG wanted to do with a procedurally generated game was the ambitious part. And they came up way short.

    As usually the case with people like you. Putting words in my mouth doesn't make it true to what I actually said.

    I said there were loads of open world survival games. Did you see procedurally generated anywhere in my post? So I didn't lie since I never said what you said I said.

    I guess there is a lot of us self hype types just in this comment section since every other comment is someone agreeing the devs were deceitful.
    You and PlugMonkey are in denial or the rest of us are all wrong. I don't think it's the latter.

    This is what is has come to now? Your post was childish and patronizing.
    You must be a young pup!

    Why is it ok for you to like an unfinished game but it's not ok for me to criticize an unfinished game?

    more excuses...it's unbelievable!

    Isn't another "fundamental" that you shouldn't deceive your consumers?

    Edit: BTW, NMS is not an ambitious game. There are loads of open world survival games and space games. The game we were supposed to be playing was ambitious.

    He's stretching the truth throughout that video.
    At one point, he says you will meet NPCs in the station. He didn't tell you it was the same 5 NPCs in the same spot in the Space station throughout the galaxy. Are they glued to the spot? You mean they couldn't procedurally generate more than 5 different aliens standing in the same spot in EVERY station of the galaxy.

    It's a budget indie game alright...at AAA prices. RIPOFF!

    "I would like to go again the grain in here and say there are many people, myself included, who feel they have received the game that was advertised."

    @JoelStinty

    That's BS and you know it. Everyone who comes to EG regularly, including you, knows that they promised 5 times more than they delivered. We saw article after article...video after video for 3 years.

    You are part of the reason why gamers are still griping about it. So many, including you, are in denial and that's a no no on the internet because people will not back down while so many stay in denial.

    Did they even mention what's in the patch besides "bug fixes"?

    You got some nerve! No one is moaning besides gamers like you who don't like hearing the truth. And don't tell me the "it's only a game" defense. Sports fans are crazier than us gamers and they are only watching a game ;)

    Most gamers are rightly pissed since the devs LIED repeatedly!

    You just joined EG 5 days ago so you can give us your "I could care less what the pricks have to say about that." What a laugh!

    If you could care less, why did you join EG just to apologize for Sony & Hello Games bungled release? Because you can waste money on sushi we should waste our money on an unfinished game?

    I guess haters are people who's PS4 crashes frequently during the game and they dislike bad game design, boring gameplay and cock-headed animals.

    This is not a good game. Or does Metacritic not count anymore since ermm...NOW? ;)

    Good marketing and good hype...Yes!

    Edit: And the retail price is just plain robbery if it was any other dev and publisher.

    I don't need to try harder. There's no veiled conspiracy. It's all self evident.

    I don't remember any known publication (enlighten me) who didn't hammer those games for performance. Most games that get the 'review in progress" have to do with reviewing their online sections since the servers aren't available yet.

    Now when Battlefield 4, Arkham Knight, AC Unity & Sim City came out, they were ripped to shreds for being broken or buggy at launch....no defenders.

    For some reason when No Man's Sky & Driveclub are delayed. And then are still released broken or without features promised, the Sony apologists, including some reviewers, defend it tirelessly.

    It boggles the mind how brand loyalty supercedes veracity. It's almost like how the Republicans are still backing Trump even though they know he's not a conservative but he is a con artist.

    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.

  • 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.

  • DjFlex52 02/07/2016

    @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.

    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 :)

    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.

    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

    @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.
