    @darth_paul To say they are boring is a gross mistake. The story is vast and complex and often convoluted. Kojima has always made games in which the devil is in the details and exploring them and trying to piece things together is half the fun.

    This.... A thousand times. Metal Gear Database also helps a lot!

    No, it is indeed a platform..... It's the reason why Facebook paid all that money. We're certainly on the cusp of something!

    @MrFlump If you already have a backlog of PS4 games, then you must have fairly low standards. The PS4 indies so far (except for Resogun) I've found very weak, and AAA stuff is very, very thin on the ground. I don't expect to use my PS4 much at all this year.

    Not that it matters, I have a PS3, a 3DS, and a PC too.

    How about oh I dunno having commitments outside of gaming like kids or a recreational sport?? It's more than a bit rich to be questioning people's standards due to a gaming backlog...seriously wow!!

    The game is what you make of it.

    For me, it was a 2hr affair that showed a promise of things to come. There's no way I'm going to go back and do all the missions etc - that's not how I get enjoyment from games - so overall the experience to me was not worth the price.

    By buying this game at the listed price you are effectively saying to the industry that it's OK to do so for this type of experience. There's nothing wrong with that, mind you, just know that that's what you'll be doing.

    For a game this polished it was a pleasure to hand over my hard earned....

    @penhalion Seems to be a lot of effort to get us to buy a demo.
    This record is rather broken, and repetitive.

    The game is not a demo. If you played it instead of jumping on an internet bandwagon, then maybe you would realise this.

    Indeed! Sick of people providing opinions on something they haven't played. I played it last night taking my time and still didn't complete the main mission in two and half hours. No doubt I'll triple that and still have fun. The article is correct when talking about open world's and it's no confidence that I had the same conclusion when playing. They really are trying something different here, so people should give it a try imo.

    Right, I'm going to say it loud and clear, anyone dismissing VR, as it stands now, and the form it will evolve into over the next few years, is an idiot. A short sighted idiot. Someone who hasn't researched what's going on, is too caught up in comparing it to other fads of recent times and seem happy to believe it is nothing but another fad. Seriously, are you aware of what this really is? The application of the technology has reached a stage where we're at a true watershed moment. Truly.

    Might sound hyperbolic but this time it's real. Oculus Rift and those with decent PC rigs will lead the way, Sony's VR solution won't be all that far behind. There's a wealth, a HUGE wealth of applications, both within the gaming circle, and perhaps even more crucially, outwith gaming. Applications which will be hugely significant. This is not Waggle 2.0, this is something new, the realisation of the Virtual Reality dream, and those dismissing it will look like fucking idiots in about 2-3 years from now. Yep, fucking idiots. You have been warned :) Do some research. The tech is there, it is affordable, it is feasible, it is revelatory. You're either a butt hurt fanboy of something or other to dismiss it so readily.

    To dismiss VR now, with all the proof of it's realisation, is akin to the idiots dismissing the moving image, or sound recording, or the printing press. FFS have a think before you talk nonsense. This will take gaming to a whole new strata, and more besides. Thank god some folk are taking the plunge and making it happen, a world run by you idiots would still be confined to torchlit caves.

    Bloody well said sir!

    I kinda wanted to wait until there were more games, but I'm pretty tempted to get a PS4 right now (got myself a coupon for the store, so I could save quite a bit, and it expires in March). Only wondering if maybe it would be better to wait for the Infamous bundle, but it doesn't look like it would save me too much money, and since it comes out so late in the month, I run the risk of not finding the console anymore and thus wasting the coupon.

    Get it now, seriously there may not be loads of games but certainly enough for the next month or so, till the heavy hitters come out.

  • Sony developing Console Wars film chronicling Nintendo vs. Sega years

  • Dondiggler 24/02/2014

    Seriously someone should do a documentary on the months leading upto the PlayStation reveal last year, through the horror show of Microsofts E3 reveal, the backtracking, resolutiongate and then end on actual release of the consoles. I mean last year was absolutely nuts news stories about next gen and between the Microsoft and Sony press conferences there's enough drama in that alone to make a good documentary. I did have an idea to start pulling together videos and try to do something like this but have no idea where to start any ideas........anyone up for a eurogamer project? Reply -6
  • Current-gen and next-gen Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes compared in new video

    Kojima has always favored Sony, as this was apparent last gen.

    But yeah its a big difference, problems is though I still wont buy a game that lasts 2 hours no matter how good it looks, ill pay 15 for it, or not at all.

    TO be honest I am shocked he is even trying to get you to by this. For me Kojima has become the Michael bay of the games world, keeps saying last one, but doesn't do it.

    Move on Kojima, you can do other games... Oh wait you cant as your a one man wonder.

    To be fair it's the fans who keep pulling him back in for "one more fight" but to suggest he's a one game wonder gtfo!!!!

    I'm actually quite surprised to see a publisher jumping on the whole comparisons bandwagon this fully. I guess it's better they do it upfront themselves given the way people have been lately, but it's pretty depressing to see how this aspect is overshadowing talk about how things actually play.

    Heck, maybe they just hoped it would deflect the chat about the game's length?

    I have to agree it's almost like Kojima is trolling Microsoft for kicks lol

    Did you try asking anyone? :)

    I did! Not trolling either.... But seriously it's completely changed since the last gen. There doesn't seem to be the same buzz about Xbox, and a lot of the "gen pop" are still under the impression you can't swap games. I work in quite a large office and to a man or woman 360 users have changed to PS4. A load are still trying to get theirs for Christmas but as yet.....not heard one person say they're interested in getting an Xbox One so go figure!?

    Nope I'm old enough to remember all of those and I'd agree PS1 And PS2 were probably a close second to PS3/X360 as the greatest generation for gaming

    @AgentDaleCooper And I honestly can't see why anybody would want a PS4. No camera boxed with the machine, no exclusive launch titles which personally interest me, a second rate online serves chaeged at a premium price point and a confirmed 1% of their million sales in North America with faults of several different kinds.

    It's different strokes for different folks.

    Reads like 200 odd comments born of jealousy to me. I've seen quite a lot of his videos and some of them were obviously future career limiting, and abhorrent, but little different than the sort of actions and words that swathes of his age group make. Personally I do think he's got quite a lot of talent of some sort though, huge amounts of charisma for a young guy and some of his stuff is pretty funny. If he manages to get through his pretty public growing up and survives the keyboard warrior-ing relatively unscathed I can see a bright future for the guy.

    I have to agree.....there seems to be a lot of hate directed towards someone's past. Which they've also tried to make amends for. The story read like he'd actually done something bad at the xbone party, so to drag it up again seems a bit harsh really....tut tut!
