    No sale for any of those titles. What a crummy portfolio, with only Star Wars being in with an outside chance of gaming goodness.

    I'll wait on the safe bet that will be Titanfall 2 I think !

  • House of Wolves gives Destiny PvP an endgame worth investing in

  • FortysixterUK 30/04/2015

    Well, there's another part of Destiny I'll never play !

    Just ease down the difficulty on the raids and night falls and let everyone auto group. EVERYWHERE!

    That would be an instant hit with the PVE player base.

  • The 33 Batman: Arkham Knight Season Pass

  • FortysixterUK 28/04/2015

    Rip off bastids.

    I'll get the vanilla edition then but the goty edition ( if on disc ) second hand, just to make sure the companies involved never see the cash.

    If it doesn't come out on disc, I'll buy the whole lot on PC for a tenner during the Steam sale.

    This is outrageous behaviour on the part of publishers and devs. All DLC is way over priced.

    What's more, what is wrong with getting the whole game on one disc instead of all this DLC shite ? Why can't we have physical copies of our paid for games on disc ?

    Destiny , Witcher 3, the new batman, all have expensive DLC ( virtual data, no physical format ).... DLC is an awful business model that should be taken outside and shot !

  • Gabe Newell responds to paid mods controversy

  • FortysixterUK 27/04/2015

    I wouldn't have an issue with this if :-

    The mod makers got the 75% payout and valve and any others got the 25%.

    The mods could only be sold for $3-$5 dollars each.

    But it's not like that. Glad I don't use mods.
    Now I never will.

    What a great way to kill a community.

    What we need is another company or two to provide the service valve seem to have captured the market with, then we need the option to be able to transfer our software licences to them.

    Come on Gog, take over and give us all DRM free licences for the games WE OWN, and take the wind from Valves sails!

    It would appear that we should look to other websites for decent reviews and scores, then come back here to see how NOT to do it, allowing us to appreciate other review sites even more.

    EG has always, in my opinion, been a tad "precious " about itself, in the same way that useless rag, EDGE magazine is !

    Maybe it's time for a U- turn on review policy EG ?

  • Decrypting the new Destiny: House of Wolves trailer

  • FortysixterUK 22/04/2015

    Just got back into Destiny after I initially quit 2 months after release. Really enjoying it. Not sure how long it will last, but damn, those gun fights that inevitably turn into knife or fist fights are intense. Real adrenalin boosting stuff.

    Just about the only thing missing is a game wide looking for group system.

  • The best PC games

  • FortysixterUK 20/04/2015

    A controversial list, no doubt. Possibly written deliberately to encourage discussion and get clicks on the webpage. No bad thing.

    My list would have been somewhat different, but I suspect the same could be said of all of us.

    I like my gaming PC a lot, but since I dropped MMOs in May 2013 for Dark Souls 2, console gaming ( on all formats ) is where it's at for me !

    How about a similar list for the consoles ?
    You see, the beauty of consoles , is , regardless of age, the games made for them always work !

    I'd love to see this work, but it's doubtful.
    Another TV show cancelled before its time, like Stargate SG1, that whilst running for 10 years, just incredibly, kept improving upon itself, and it could have kept going.

    There were two games being made for SG1 as well, but ended up being canned and now live on with fan made servers, but sadly, the games were never completed!

  • Star Wars Battlefront is more than just a big budget Battlefield mod

  • FortysixterUK 18/04/2015

    I want this to be good. But I'm not risking anything until I see a GOTY edition up for sale or at least a very cheap vanilla edition.

    Plus, how hard can it be to put a full offline mode in there with bots, so you still get to play the game " single player" when you want ?

    I'll watch this with interest. But no cash is being spent until it's been out a few months and it's stable. Of course, by then it may be too late to join as the player base may have everything unlocked !

    Truthfully, I just want good, single player Star Wars games.

    Time will tell , and I really wish all the best towards DICE. They have a big responsibility on their hands with this one.

  • Face-Off: Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin

  • FortysixterUK 09/04/2015

    All 4 of the souls games are excellent, and have been head & shoulders above their peer releases in the same release year.

    Bloodborne, is , for me, the worst of the lot, which still makes it brilliant. 7/10.

    Demon souls is still the best, 10/10.

    Dark souls 2 ( both versions ) 9/10.

    Dark souls 1 , 8/10.

    A unique series of games that I have , combined, spent several 100 hours with.

    I would like to see a change of game style now.
    Maybe drop the difficulty and go for truly epic with a new Kings Field RPG.

    Or one of From Softwares famous mech franchises making an appearance on next gen.

    After a Demon Souls HD REMASTER , of course!

  • Battlefield Hardline fends off challenge of Bloodborne in UK chart

  • FortysixterUK 30/03/2015

    Kind of a shame, as BB is a new franchise whereas Battlefield is ... The 7th in the series ?

    However, BB is by far the poorest of the " souls type " games . Of course, that still makes it one of the best games released since Dark Souls 2. But my personal score? Demon Souls is a 10, DS 2 is a 9, DS1 is an 8, with BB a comfortable 7. Good but by no means a great title.

    If there were a school report for BB it would read " must try harder, must have more variety in its current limited choice of play style ".

    ...probably end up buying it twice anyway , a second time for a " complete edition ".

  • See which retro game consoles can survive a 15 foot drop

    A bunch of perfectly good retro consoles smashed for click bait. I can feel another round of ebay buying coming on. To buy more backup hardware for my backup hardwares backups ! I like to have 3 of every retro console from Snes onwards in reserve.

    I need 2 more Pc Engines, 1 more usa Snes, and oddly , the original xboxes don't stand the test of time!

    Anyway, waste of good consoles if you ask me ( in the video ).

    So is it any good or not ? Having read the review it's quite unclear if it is.
    What you need is some kind of scoring system......maybe an " ...out of 10" type system .
    That would make sense and certainly aid the reader when the reviews are so poor and indecisive as this one.

  • Nintendo NX is "new hardware with a brand new concept"

  • FortysixterUK 17/03/2015

    My concern is that it might be a streaming only or digital only service. That's a no go in my book. No physical media , no purchase.

    An Xbox live / PSN style account is what they need to provide , nothing else will suffice.

    Hardware wise, a console with a similar spec to ps4 would be a sensible move .

  • Tech Analysis: Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin

  • FortysixterUK 27/02/2015

    I've decided this is no longer going to be the instabuy it was on PS3 and PC. I love the souls series and am currently on my 6 th play through ( done it twice on PS3 & 3 times on PC so far), but all the talk of extra mobs all over the place has put me off the new PS4 version. I already find it a serious challenge, but ultimately do-able. I don't suddenly want to find my fave game of the last few years suddenly frustratingly unplayable. I'll wait for the Metacritics I think.
    Anyway, Bloodborne is out the week before !

  • The Order: 1886 review

  • FortysixterUK 19/02/2015

    That review is a little late isn't it? A few hours before official release and WAAAY too late for people to cancel their pre-orders. What happened to reviews a week before a games release?

    Oh yes, of course, the studio who made it know it's not that good so put a review embargo on it maybe ? Or didn't give out the digital download review codes until yesterday maybe ? The review is clear that it's just a passable game and not the great white hope it was supposed to be. Reads like a high 6/10.

    Call me a cycnic.

    I am interested in this game though. Just not 50 plus interested.

    I'll wait for the vanilla version to drop to 20-25 then I'll give it a try.

    What's REALLY put me off is the mention of QTE's which is, and always has been, a terrible design mechanic put into games just to irritate the player.

    They were a bad idea when they first appeared and they are a bad idea now.

    This game looks like it could be an intriguing world. Perhaps with some RPG lite elements put in, and the game then designed like a Metroidvania, and the sequel COULD be a serious winner.

    But not QTE's ok ?

  • Sonic Boom games shifted just 490,000 copies

  • FortysixterUK 12/02/2015

    Sega are losing it...


    "ahem"

    I once again refer you to my Sega Mega Console concept.

    It has cart ports that take Sega Master System & Megadrive carts.
    It has a multi format Drive that plays Saturn and Dreamcast games, whilst supporting the bluray format . The console has power/performance on par with a PS4.

    Sega gets lots of third parties to release all their nice new games on the console, meanwhile Sega reproduce all the best selling games from their previous systems, and put them out to retail. All sold at 14.99 and 19.99.

    With re-releases of all the past hits Sega come back from the brink with an aggressively marketed console that goes against the grain in one important way.
    All of its retro titles can be physically purchased as new or people can play their old libraries of games.

    Sega flourish.

  • Nintendo details its outlandish process of transferring data to the New 3DS

  • FortysixterUK 11/02/2015

    I'm doing the wireless transfer right now. Talk about fiddly !

    Of course, one day Ninty will realise the best way to go about this is to make an account based system like Microsoft and Sony. Then you can simply
    de-authorise the system you were using on it, authorise a newer system on it and access all the stuff YOU HAVE PAID FOR instantly.

    I know that kind of account would make me feel more confident about buying digital stuff from Ninty, and I'd so I'd buy Ninty digital stuff far more often as well !

  • BioWare cancels its four-on-one online RPG Shadow Realms

  • FortysixterUK 10/02/2015

    Good. Concentrate on SWTOR , it has seriously improved since I played it at launch. I went back in last Friday and have been impressed with how well it plays and the friendly community, which is the polar opposite of WOWs community. But then, the community is also better in Rift, Conan, Tera , FF14 and Guild Wars 2.

    A further pleasant surprise to SWTOR is that if you subscribe you get 525 cartel coins a month. Considering 450 coins is 2.99 that makes the sub, at its most expensive, 6.00 per month in real terms.

    Anyway, SWTOR IS GOOD. So there

  • The next Sonic game is Sonic Runners

  • FortysixterUK 03/02/2015

    Sega need to bite the bullet and release the Sega Mega console. This console will be a quality build ( thinking size and shape of xbox One ).

    Three cart slots at the back - master system, megadrive and Saturn. The multi format drive will play Dreamcast and Saturn games and of course the new format that is for the new console.

    Sega will reprint all the best selling master system game carts as well as the Megadrive carts and sell them for 14.99 and 19.99 respectively. They will also relaunch all their best selling DC & Saturn games.

    All re - released games will have the same packaging as their original releases.

    Then of course there's the new format system to consider. Featuring power and features similar to PS4 this will put the new console in direct competition with PS4 and XB1.

    Every game released with the title " Sega Mega System" emblazoned across its cover etc.

    It will retail for 329.99 with 2 controllers .

    Sega then make a huge comeback as all their classic titles take over the top10 and the new format flourishes.

    All this in one console.






    UPDATE:-

    I see my suggestion for a new Sega system managed to get a few negs. Why on earth would some neg such a glorious idea ?
    I'd love to hear your reasoning behind the negs......neggers...explain yourselves...if you dare !

  • Watch Bloodborne's opening 18 minutes

  • FortysixterUK 03/02/2015

    This looks terrific. But it does seem an odd decision to release Bloodborne for PS4 and Dark Souls 2 for PS4 within such close proximity to each other.
    Not that I mind, I'll be getting them both regardless. Nearly at the end of my fifth play through of DS2 on PC. All of the souls games are just so immersive and involving , so as far as I'm concerned more of the same, or similar, can only be a good thing.

    I think this will get a regular 8/10 ( or equivalent ) across the review world.

  • Deactivated Ubisoft game keys were bought from EA's Origin using stolen credit cards

  • FortysixterUK 28/01/2015

    Farcry 4 is currently 32.86 for a PC physical copy ( surely everyone's preferred format ? ). Leave it another few months and it'll be nearer 20 on PC.

    However, in a move that can only be described as slightly mad, Amazon are selling the digital version for 39.99 !!!

    Moral of the keys that are banned issue...buyer beware. I know I've bought a few keys from key reselling sites, and always due to the frustrating fact that the reseller sells the game for 50% less that the official site.

    The last one I bought was Risen 3 ( I know, I know...I should have known better...its a rough game....but it still works )...anyway, Steam were putting it out there for 45. The reseller sold it for 21.49.

    See what the reseller did there?

    Expensive game prices.....there really is no excuse.

  • Ubisoft deactivating keys it says were "fraudulently" obtained and resold

  • FortysixterUK 26/01/2015

    Another reason not to use Uplay.
    I would imagine the keys were obtained from purchased retail copies of the game then skd on. Ubisoft didn't see enough of the cash so probably blocked the relative keys.

    Frankly, I seldom but full price from ANY digital provider, and that includes Steam. It's usually cheaper to buy the game disc from Anazon anyway.
