  • The truth about GodMode, the "World's First Brain Booster for Gamers"

  • FortysixterUK 15/12/2017

    Get enough sleep, take a vitamin tablet and eat well when you can. When you feel shite, be aware of what makes you feel like that. I bet lack of sleep is often a contributor.
    Don't touch bullshit like this.

  • Pokémon Crystal coming to 3DS in a cardboard box

    Or, you know, they could have released a physical game. Not that it matters, I only own one pokemon game, heart gold. It's.... OK.... Ish. So I'm not getting this digital only one, that's for sure.

    Please go and pay Ł25 for a cardboard box with a DLC code if it makes you happy....

  • Xenoblade Chronicles 2's December update will aim to fix its awful map

  • FortysixterUK 15/12/2017

    Having completed the first xenoblade chronicles yesterday ( after 2 mis-starts over the years), and then immediately starting xenoblade chronicles x, I can safely say XBCX on wii-u, looks and appears to play far better than anything that happened on my 98 hour playthru of XBC on the Wii, and my admittedly 3 hours short experience of XBX2 on Switch.

    Why on earth does the wii-u game look and play in a superior manner to the newer switch game? The switch game still looks great mind you, but there's something about XBCX on the wii-u that feels superior. And not just the incredible soundtrack.

  • Rocket League in a box costs Ł35 on Nintendo Switch

  • FortysixterUK 13/12/2017

    Considering the world and his mate must own a copy of this on superior formats, I won't lose any sleep over this.

    Physical is the only sensible way to go for games, unless you're happy to just medium term rent and eventually lose the game. Your choice. But for me there is no choice most of the time, simply don't buy the switch version.

    Physical forever, digital never.

  • Jelly Deals: Bayonetta 2 Special Edition up for pre-order

  • FortysixterUK 12/12/2017

    This special edition was almost a must have for me, and I already have it on wii-u, but then the dreaded phrase digital download for bayonetta 1 was spotted, and all of a sudden this was an expensive, pointless and wasted opportunity.

    If both games were physical, this would have been a cool and unique edition. Now it's just an overpriced rip off. How tragic. Physical forever as far I'm concerned.

    If you don't have a game physically, all you're doing is a long term rental. Utterly pointless. And look how you fall into a companies "caring" hands. Give us lots of money they say, and we'll make sure you have nothing to show for it.

    The other thing that bugs me with digital versions, is if you buy a physical, why don't you get the virtually worthless, but only slightly more convenient digital version thrown in for free?

    Digital versions of games have their place. Usually on the end of a big sale.

  • Your Amiga games are likely dying

  • FortysixterUK 10/12/2017

    Yup, my Amiga a500 and loads of games have been through 20 winters in my loft, so that's those games borked then!

    To be fair, I'd only want captive, dungeon master and the eye of the beholder games.

    It seemed such a promising concept, control a big group of ships and play the game like a space based rpg, then you realise it's not single player, it's pvp only and online only.

    Utterly wasted game.

  • Detroit: Become Human under fire for controversial domestic abuse scene

  • FortysixterUK 04/12/2017

    Imbeciles with no understanding of Video games, and maybe a partial understanding of domestic abusers.

    I play video games. I've played them most of my adult life. I've never hurt anyone.

    I also work in a position that brings me into close contact with abusers very regularly. Frankly, some are evil and some don't know any better. A video game won't change them.

    The complainers need to get a grip.

  • The slow disappearing act of Demon's Souls

  • FortysixterUK 02/12/2017

    OK, for a start, get a PS3 and a copy of demon souls.

    Then play, in my opinion, the best souls game in the series to date. I include bloodborne in that.

    The stark loneliness of the game makes your return to the nexus a true place of comfort.

    The combat is just excellent, the atmosphere and progression utterly compelling. In 2009 a magazine called games Tm published a review for Demon Souls and awarded it 10/10, calling it a perfect game.

    At the time, it probably was. I still think it is.

    I would urge anyone to go and play the Kings field series on ps1 & 2, the games that led to demon and dark souls games as well. There was also another game by from software that was very similar to kings field, called eternal ring, for its time, a good game, worth checking out for ps2.

    I've just started a new run through of demon souls, just for old times sake before the servers shut down. It will be my ninth play through.

    Note the server shutdown won't stop the game working, but it will remove the notes players can put on the floor, any pvp or co-op, and the ability to see fellow players in ghost form appear in your game. Small things I know, but it'll be sad to see them go.

  • After nine years, Demon's Souls' servers are going offline for good

  • FortysixterUK 28/11/2017

    Wow, that's a shame, I left a message in or outside every boss room in the game indicating a safe place to stand for respite during each fight. I played the game multiple times, and was always a chuffed to see my message still at each location, with lots of "likes".

    Plus seeing the ghostly images of other players was always interesting, and you could actually bow to each other occasionally. A sort of brotherhood of silence.

    A great game, and arguably the best in the series, followed by DS2. The feeling of bleak isolation has never been bettered by any other game.

    It will be a real shame to see it go offline, I have a Korean version of the game, and there were always folks running about.

    They've threatened to close the servers down a number of times over the years, only to have fans lobby the company to keep them running.

    I wonder if another "save our souls" campaign would be successful?

    Genuinely sad to see you go Demon Souls.

  • In defence of Oblivion

  • FortysixterUK 26/11/2017

    Skyrim is great, completed it several times.
    But... Oblivion is easily the superior game, skyrim, in many ways, just cut and pasted stuff from Oblivion.
    A proper re-release of oblivion with the silly potato head graphics swapped out for something better would be a day one purchase.

  • Destiny 2 may not be giving you as much XP as you think it is

  • FortysixterUK 24/11/2017

    I've already stopped playing destiny 2, had done so in less than a month after release. It has great gameplay, but such restrictions on loot rewards and fear progression that the game got dull and transparent really fast. And now someone has found yet another restriction imposed upon the player. At time of writing, I can't see myself going back to it. Reply +11

  • Dolphins that find treasure! Minecraft's big ocean overhaul

  • FortysixterUK 20/11/2017

    **sigh**.

    I love Minecraft, I really do, but what a pointless and limited update.

    Bring in a big story arc, with npcs that give you quests. Make it more rpg, but with the freedom to ignore the quest if you want.

    You want to add something useful? Custom map markers, simple elevator technology, an auto mining machine that can be told what to keep and ignore.


    Instead we get a trident that you lose if you throw it.

    Also, if we're going to play under water why not give us a diving suit with an infinite air supply instead of the fiddly potions system to make breathing potions?

    Am I the only one who cannot see the ocean of missed opportunities in this game?


    Ps.

  • On the secret smallness of Skyrim

  • FortysixterUK 19/11/2017

    Really good read, well done.

    I've finished skyrim multiple times. But you know what? Oblivion, for all its potato headed npcs, is a superior game in nearly every way, except as I just mentioned, graphically.

    On PC that can be improved lots with mods. Skyrim therefore, is very good. Second only in the series to the truly great, Oblivion.

  • Little things save Call of Duty: WW2 when the big things fail to make an impact

  • FortysixterUK 18/11/2017

    Nice article. I borrowed a copy of the game just to do the campaign. The stealth mission in paris was for me, the best part of the game. By the end of the campaign I just thought to myself that I was glad I hadn't paid Ł50 for this. I preferred earlier ww2 campaigns in others cods and moh's.

    I also preferred every futuristic campaign or modern day campaign served up by cod to this one.
    Something felt hollow and missing to the new campaign, despite some good writing. And I enjoyed this article far more than the whole campaign too!

  • Fans can decide Minecraft's newest mob during the MineCon Earth livestream this weekend

  • FortysixterUK 17/11/2017

    I have played ( and own) Minecraft on just about every platform except mobile.

    Now its time to add more to it than a simple mob.
    A new story, engaging npcs, that spawn in random locations on every map you make, with dynamic quests, and a clear, overall quest path to the nether portal dungeon. I guess I'm looking for an rpg lite like dragon quest builders, but with more creative freedom.

    If I want to to go off quest with my world to mine and build, I should be able to, then go back to the more directed story later if I want.

    Oh, and put an elevator system in the game that's easy to build and implement, like the Minecart track.

    Plus, put a permanent pulsing dot on the map when you take over a village or build a camp, maybe make it a simple, craftable object. That together with the ability to write notes on maps would be a useful addition.

  • FIFA players react to EA's dramatic Star Wars Battlefront 2 microtransactions U-turn

  • FortysixterUK 17/11/2017

    I would like to see a complete EA embargo by games players. If there is pay to win stuff in a game, no one buys it.

    A huge Facebook group made to act aganst Pay to win would be a good start.

    I'm not too fussed about cosmetic only loot boxes, as long as the only way you can EVER earn them would be via just playing the game.

    In my opinion, once you buy a game, THAT IS IT. No more payouts.

    Overall, don't go digital games only, when possible, buy physical, and preferably a game that doesn't require a permanent online presence.

  • Making our own adventures in Dragon's Dogma

    Once again I find myself in disagreement with EG.

    The most obvious issue with dragons dogma upon its original release was a lack of auto travel in a world that so needed it.

    The comments about it being bland or dull? Get stuffed. A fine game, and the remaster is worth every penny of the purchase price.

  • Star Wars Battlefront 2 review

  • FortysixterUK 14/11/2017

    Regards this lack of refund option that's sprung up. I dare say that's so they can report high sales to THEIR paymasters, the licence holders of star wars, Disney.

    If the game doesn't reach certain sales criteria I would imagine retribution would be swift.

    I'm hoping public opinion about this game reaches Disney, and the see fit to rescind their licence.

    If only every gaming site would have the balls to say what's wrong, score the game lower accordingly, and cause a negative effect for EA.

    I wonder if there's a gaming site out there that has the balls and integrity to do this?

    It's sounds like there's a passable situation single player campaign trying to get out, but it's weighed down by the weight of the corporate shite it has to carry.

    This is a second hand purchase for me. I don't want EA getting any cash from my purchase. I'll get it, for the SP campaign alone, when it's going for a tenner.

  • EA's response to Star Wars: Battlefront 2 hero unlock fury isn't going down well

  • FortysixterUK 13/11/2017

    Give me a star wars bounty hunter game with similar gameplay, world size and content to assassins creed origin.

    Give me a star wars rpg with the depth, world size and longevity of YS the lacrimosa of Dana.

    Give me a star wars metroidvania with the brilliance of axiom verge.

    Give me a star wars shooter with the brilliance and depth of warframe and to make it better, make it playable offline.

    Give me games that don't rely on DLC or microtransactions, and don't enforce them either.
    Preferably, give me a game that has neither.

    How about giving me a game with depth, longevity and brilliance, I'll replay it a few times whilst you make the better sequel. And I'll buy that on day one because I was so impressed with the previous title.

  • Pokémon Go maker Niantic working on Harry Potter game next

  • FortysixterUK 08/11/2017

    A mobile game? What a load of bollocks.

    Make a proper rpg.

    You start school at the same time as HP. You choose your class house, design your character, and the game begins. Your story runs parallel with HP's. The school and its huge grounds and locales feature in a fully open world rpg.

    With a little artistic licence, you remain at the school until you and everyone of your class mates turn 18.
    The finale is the huge voldemort army battle.

    An couple of 100 hours of gameplay take you through to then end.


    In the second game, three years have passed, you have become an aura ( magic policeman with shoot to kill policy), and are hunting evil remnants of voldemorts army in the uk.

    The series could be huge!

    But no.... Let's make a poxy mobile phone game instead.

  • Need for Speed Payback review

  • FortysixterUK 08/11/2017

    The last decent need for speed was a burnout game that had "welcome to the jungle" playing during its intro scenes, that was on Xbox 360. It seems Ea just can't produce a decent game these days..... Or may aptly, these past years. Except for Battlefield games.
    I have very little to do with Ea except for burnout, dragon age and mass effect, and since they're all dead franchises now.... I'll stick with indies, Activision and Ubisoft for the most part.

  • More than half of Destiny 2's console sales were digital downloads

  • FortysixterUK 04/11/2017

    A comment was made further down in this discussion that there was a possibility disc reading drives might be dropped from future consoles. Sadly, that does seem like a very real possibility, as it may also help keep the price of a console down.

    A digital only console would, for me at least, draw a line under my lifetime of console and physical game collecting.

    Should that ever happen of course, I still have a big collection of hardware and games to play on that hardware.

    Plus, in answer to another comment about digital being practical for online only games, that is of course, totally correct. My little speech about sticking with physical copies of games only really works in the single player format.
    Reply 0
  • FortysixterUK 03/11/2017

    I'll stick with physical copies when I can. Going digital plays into the hands of publishers who want control over your spending habits. If the physical market goes, so does the second hand market. Publishers would love that.

    Plus no physical copy also means you're only renting a game. When the download servers shutdown, how are you going to get your game back?

    Digital only would literally end the retro market. Yes, believe it or not, ps4 and xb1 will be retro in 20 years.
    Walk into any store selling PS3 & xb360 second hand games. For Ł200 you can buy a console and dozens of its best games. That won't happen with digital.

    Digital only would mean no price wars or pricing competition. Everything would cost top dollar.

    Digital only is the unthinking fools path, you lose control and choice.

    Stay physical folks, digital still has its place, when a title is going dead cheap, buy it for convenience, but never as your main choice.
