  • Bungie reassures fans disappointed that Destiny only has one playable area per planet

  • FortysixterUK 28/07/2014

    Another point , don't get me wrong, I want Destiny to be great and have a long life.

    But I wonder ... If at some point it was called "Halo : Destiny " or some such, and was actually going to be a Halo MMO?

    Then Bungie thought better of it , realised Halo's popularity might be on the wane , and turned it into a " new IP" instead ?

    I'm hoping for the best with this game , and will vote positively with my wallet. IN THE SHORT TERM. If they start leaching DLC all over the place the game will simply break , as many folks can't continue to afford constant outlay .

    A major DLC upgrade annually, like Guild Wars does ( did ?) is what I'm hoping for.

    A game I find myself comparing this to is Phantasy Star online ( original version with the " whole new world " song ).

    That was small , but infinitely playable, plus it was a fiver a month and a total bastard to try and cancel your hunter licence for on Xbox. When I finally did , they deleted my account. Never went back after that .

    To give it real legs , Destiny needs AI companions to stand in for players , an offline mode and always be subscription free.

    Here's hoping Bungie can make Destiny the stunner that Phantasy Star Online was.

    If not.... There's plenty of other stuff to play... And they'll fade into obscurity along with the game....

  • Firefly Online will feature the show's entire original cast

  • FortysixterUK 26/07/2014

    Loved the TV show and film , watched them both 5 times completely .... Possibly the best Whedon project ever.

    I read about the game and it sounds great. .... Then I read online MMO and mobile....

    Game over .

    To any future designers who ever get to make a game with this licence , here's a few pointers.

    Single player ( think Assassins creed / GTA open world with masses of quests... But instead of a boat in the sea you're a ship in space )

    Get the entire cast on board .

    Get Joss Whedon to co- write it .

    Did I mention SINGLE PLAYER ?

    Do all of that and you'll have a sale !

  • Uncharted 4 is pushing for 1080p60 on PlayStation 4

  • FortysixterUK 21/07/2014

    I think HD remakes of key PS3 and XBOX360 titles for their next gen relatives would be a wonderful path to follow .

    It obviously takes a long time to make a quality HD remake however... So why not farm the work out to other devs whilst you concentrate on your next triumph ?

    I tell ya.... The first company to come up with a black box program that lets you feed ps3 data in one day and spews out PS4 code properly optimised the next is gonna make a killing !

    To all companies thinking about making HD remakes . I WILL BUY YOUR HD REMAKES !
    Get to it !

    I'm eased to say I've been MMO clean since March 8 , as that's wheny last WOW sub ended. I've got ESO ( the huge box version ) but haven't even activated the code. I just can't bring myself to bother with MMOs at moment... I suppose I should sell it.... Anyone want the full collectors edition of ESO ? Unused code, statue , book , DLC etc etc ....?

    Time for me to move on from MMOs ( especially subs based ones ).

  • Ubisoft now employs a chief parkour officer for Assassin's Creed

  • FortysixterUK 17/07/2014


    The other way to look at it is that the games have kept the same level of consistent high quality....except for AC3.....bad Ubi....bad...**taps ubisoft on the nose and sends them to their basket**

  • FortysixterUK 17/07/2014

    It's cool and not cool at the same time. ( that running video )

    As far as the AC series is going... For the most part it's doing fine.
    AC2, Brotherhood & Revelations were fine ( Brotherhood being the peak in that trilogy).
    AC 4 is simply the best yet.
    AC3 is pretty poor and buggy, but as I'm playing through them all at the moment this is where I am and I'm determined to try and finish it before I treat myself to another run through of the marvelous AC 4.
    AC 1 started it least it's better than AC3..

    I'm guessing everyone here has noticed similar gameplay mechanics in Farcry 3 ( brilliant until you get to the card game with the boss guy where it all falls apart ), and the very fun Watchdogs when compared to the AC series?

    Regardless, for the most part all the games work and they're just keep them
    coming Ubi !

  • Former Valve contributor and VR specialist warns against the tech's future

    Maybe this chap is right, it sounds like he has worked close enough to the games industry to know. It make very grim reading.

    Not really an issue however. This VR tech is strictly a novelty for me, and the closest I'll get to is it try a headset at a trade show or some such place. I'll not buy or use one for personal use . Ever.

  • White PS4 will release on its own in Europe later this year

  • FortysixterUK 10/07/2014

    I think hardware turns yellow because of cigarette smoke normally? I remember building a PC for my mate years ago , the case was that horrid light beige. He smoked lots, a few months later he called me over to visit and it had turned almost dark brown and was tacky to touch. Icky cig smoke .

    The Ice white PS3 I brought a few years back is still brilliant white. Shows dust like a bitch however !

    I agreed with most of that.
    The exception was Tim Currys performance in Red Alert 3. The CnC games have always been silly and OTT ( well, the good ones have,) and he nailed it just fine . Silly AND OTT.

  • Shadow Warrior out on PS4, Xbox One this autumn

  • FortysixterUK 10/07/2014

    .... Now if this had been the original Shadow Warrior with the build engine ....that would be awesome .

    Then put Blood and its mission packs on the next gen stuff too and you would gave been sorted for 90s rock hard shooters.

    As it stands, it's the remake .... Which cost me 7.99 on PC .... Oh well , thankfully there's some great stuff due out on next gen soon so this will just fall by the wayside !

  • Divinity: Original Sin review

  • FortysixterUK 10/07/2014

    Some of that review was pretty poor... The opening few paragraphs and the closing one particularly.

    However, the game scored well despite the questionable quality of the review . That's good to see.

    For a decent review of this game head over to MMO GAMER.

  • Watch Dogs gets new single-player DLC tomorrow on all platforms

  • FortysixterUK 01/07/2014

    Brilliant game ( completed it on PS4). I really don't agree with DLC , it always comes out after you've completed the main game and seems somewhat superfluous . However... If I wait a few months it'll all be out and I can treat myself to another run through !

    Still feels like a rip off though... As does most DLC.

    Plus... There's a lot of hate for this game in this thread. It's a shame ' cos its a fun game. On PS4, not sure about the PC version .

  • Bungie to update Peter Dinklage's lacklustre Destiny performance

  • FortysixterUK 01/07/2014

    The AI voice sounded odd for a few reasons .
    It seemed to be recorded at different volume levels.

    The voice didn't sound like it was the same actor all the time .( sometime a hint if accent , other times none ).

    It DID sound somewhat "wooden". But you know, I liked the game so much I had almost convinced myself that this was how it was intended to sound, that and the fact I like the voice actor.

    On a side note, I initially thought the voice actor was John D'Lancie ( he of Q fame from Star Trek next gen , amongst others )and it's not until I read the EG forum I found out it was him.

    I wonder if he was contractually tied to Re- record or if it really was just place holder sound ?

  • Steam revokes 7050 stolen Sniper Elite 3 codes

  • FortysixterUK 30/06/2014

    Surely the solution here was to send a new cd key to every person who registered the game on steam, AND THEN disable the existing codes. That way the buyer is not out of pocket but they are aware they got a dodgy code and can be more aware for their next purchase ? It seems to me that a lot of players might be at the losing end of this issue.

    As I posted earlier , I'll wait a few months before I buy this game and see what steam and rebellion do in the mean time. Could well be a contender for the STEAM Christmas sale now if both companies don't work this out in favour of the buyers as far as I'm concerned.

    Well that's sniper elite 3 off my shopping list for a few months, I've started using and so far everything has worked, ( 4 games so far ) but even though sniper elite 3 is only 16 from them, I'll not risk losing the cash.

    They're now selling watchdogs with the DLC for 19 , bloody awesome. Worth the upgrade from the excellent PS4 version methinks.

  • "That wizard came from the moon!" Destiny T-shirt soars to sales success

  • FortysixterUK 24/06/2014

    For the first few minutes I thought the voice was actually John de'Lancie ( he of "Q" fame from Star Trek). It took a lot of listening to finally work out who it was.

    Yes, there IS an argument that the lines were 'phoned in...on the other hand...he is playing some form of computer AI, hence the slight dullness to the voice.

    On the other hand....Cortana was an AI and she was a babe and full of emotion.
    Of course, she was there to titilate the younger male players of Halo.

    On the other hand ( oh god....I've sprouted a third arm )...I really liked Destiny and am TOTALLY looking forwards to it !

  • Destiny's PlayStation-exclusive content detailed in full

  • FortysixterUK 23/06/2014

    There's a lot of complaints about this exclusive DLC stuff. It seems to me that Bungie has been paid a big wedge of cash to do this very, very minor exclusivity deal. I can't see any of it affecting the core game.

    Simple solution is to buy both consoles and hang on for the ride . So far, my ride has favoured the PS4. Whereas the first 3 to 4 Years of the previous generation was favoured towards Microsoft.

  • Digital Foundry: Hands-on with Far Cry 4

  • FortysixterUK 22/06/2014

    Literally ( as in a few minutes ago ) completed FC3. Great game. Until the ending set piece where you play cards with the baddie.

    Spoiler alert

    The quick time knife fight was cheap and poor, why not an epic shoot out ?

    The run across the airfield to find your brother with constantly spawning baddies was poor.

    Finally, the ending speech of your character seems to cut off and there's no real explanation as to what happened ( I chose to save my friends ).

    So all in all....a 90% score all the way until the card game at the end then the score value drops to 25% in my opinion.

    Hope they keep the same high quality gameplay like FC3 and wrap it up with a high quality ending... Unlike FC3.

  • Why Unreal deserves to be remembered alongside Half-Life

    Awesome music. Awesome sound effects.
    ... And I still remember the first time I played it and walked out of the prison ship onto the planets surface. That image is still with me today.
    Played it and completed it 3 times , yet oddly, can't remember the ending. It was unique and still is, and is fondly remembered as being in the higher echelons of FPS brilliance along with Blood, Shadow Warrior and Quake.

  • Video: Destiny PS4 alpha live-stream

  • FortysixterUK 13/06/2014

    Plus quick review.

    This is Halo the MMO in new packaging ( if it existed). Borrowing game elements from Defiance, Borderlands and Phantasy Star Online. It does it all quite well...except for my non shooting gun issue.

    It has similar sound effects to Halo, has a dual bad guy system like Halos covenant race and the insect race.
    Even the music harks back to Halo.

    Looks wicked on Ps4.

    My recommendation ? If you like any of the games mentioned above this is probably for you.

    UPDATE:- my non shooting gun ? A broken R2 button on the controller. Took it back to GAME and they swapped it out under warranty. So disregard the comments about the game not shooting . It does.

  • Entwined review

  • FortysixterUK 13/06/2014

    It probably got that " gentle shove" at the show because there are only a few games due in 2014. Regardless, there's lots to look forwards to...and I could tell this game was going nowhere by the disinterest in the audience, which was only beaten in apathy by the announcement of some Disney figurines for some game or other that fell very flat.

    Diablo 3 on PS4 ( boy did that game ever turn it all around ! ) and Destiny are my biggies for this year. Oh, and that game that's not Dark Souls but is like it , due out this November.

    Not interested in a lacklustre indie game. But one things for sure... A lot of people saw their game thanks to that press conference .

  • Assassin's Creed Unity is a backward step for progressive games

    For multiplayer and co op surely a spike re- skin is all that's needed.
    For single player , some addition and allowances to the script need doing.

    Do them both early enough and surely it's a non issue ? A female assassin would be interesting to say the least .

  • E3 2014 guide

  • FortysixterUK 06/06/2014

    I found the best way to watch E3 is via edited highlights the day after.

    The big presentations are usually full of flaff and hot air.

    They seem to spend more time promoting games that don't have the slightest interest for me ( Sport games, dance/music games, driving sims, and THE sims ) and far too little time on the really interesting genres like RPGs, Strats, Shooters, & the more arcadey drivers.

    Alternately they are trying to tell me what their console can do besides play games. Well....I've got news for them all....I only play games on my games console !

    As for Ninty...if it's not RPG, Metroid, Animal Crossing, Zelda, Mario, or Fzero related then I tune out !

    I always enjoy E3....but always when someone has taken the time to cut the wheat from the chaff. I look forwards to this years E3...just the day after !
