    The only nerve you've hit with me is the one that makes me shake my head and thinks "here's a guy that needs to get out more".

    "Hit and hide"? It's a 5 year old article about the production of a videogame, just relax.

    How could posting images of sheep "hit a nerve?".

    I'm just pointing out that you've admitted to being an adult, but yet are throwing up posts that are befitting of an angry teenager.

  • While we wait, 15 new Grand Theft Auto 5 PC screenshots

  • FuzzyDuck 28/02/2015

    @misho8723

    That it was.

    If R* do a good job of the port, it will be well worth it. It looked stunning on the old consoles, it looks stunning on the new ones and it is a fantastic game to boot.

    A high end PC version - almost guaranteed to be stunning.

  • Far Cry 4's Valley of the Yetis DLC gets a March release date

  • FuzzyDuck 26/02/2015

    This add-on to Ubisoft's open-world shooter sees you back in the green track jacket of Ajay Ghale as he crashes in a snowy plane occupied by a sinister group of cultists and, as the name implies, yetis.
    That reads as if the yetis are also on the plane with Ajay!

  • Dead or Alive 5: Last Round review

  • FuzzyDuck 25/02/2015

    @shehzaanshazabdulla

    A fair point!

    I don't really think about the mechanics (have been playing fighting games for 22 years now, yeesh), but anything that gets people to dig into the genre more is to be applauded.

    I get what you mean. It plays a fun enough fight, but it feels more like a game of high speed rock, paper, scissors.

    VF5 is still king for me.

  • The Escapists review

  • FuzzyDuck 12/02/2015

    @PlugMonkey
    I'm guessing they can't tell us how they weight the badges because that is basically saying "1 to 10 works".

    I think a boxout with a secondary opinion would be far better that this badge set up.

  • FuzzyDuck 12/02/2015

    Ha, I'm loving the fact that anyone who dares criticize the Emperor's new clothes around here (the badge system) gets negged to oblivion.

    It's a pointless (no pun intended) system as most games will end up with a "Recommneded" badge or nothing.

    Just go all in and ditch scores completely or implement a proper (oh, I don't know, I hear a scale of 1 o 10 is handy) system.

  • Ubisoft's unreleased, finished Wii U game revealed

  • FuzzyDuck 11/02/2015

    They've probably shelved it due to the lack of opportunities to scale towers, find pointless collectibles and it didn't have a completely po-faced protagonist with a humdrum story.

    It was possibly bug free too.

  • Eurogamer has dropped review scores

  • FuzzyDuck 10/02/2015

    @MattEvansC3

    You are entirely correct about not encouraging devs to go down that slippery lope.

    I was more angling towards EG's statement of "it isn't helpful to the reader". Instead of a re-review, maybe an update (that leaves the original review intact, which some sites do) could serve the purpose?
    Reply 0
  • FuzzyDuck 10/02/2015

    Bravo EG, but the one bit I can't get behind is this:

    Regularly updated reviews might seem like the answer to changing circumstances (and changing games), but we don't believe they're helpful to readers
    I'd beg to differ. If someone was on the fence about picking up say, Driveclub today and read yer review, they'd probably not bother (and rightlty so, as the game at launch was a mess, barebones, etc.), but today is a much improved title and the review certainly doesn't reflect the (vastly improved) state that the game is in today.

    8/10

  • FuzzyDuck 09/02/2015

    @daniloazhar1

    Wait, what? I am not understanding what are you saying - are you suggesting that you can't store game saves on a swapped internal drive?

    I'd have no desire to play the CDs back on a home cinema, they're recorded in stereo after all (okay, I'd love to get the King Crimson 5.1 remasters, but am in no rush to change my home set up and buy those albums again). You have to remember that people also buy digital downloads legally - they don't have a CD to pop into the console. And I'm sure not looking to put my vinyl on the thing.

    Edit - going off topic, but you are really missing out not making digital copies of your music. It serves as a back up, and it's kinda nice having a few hundred albums to choose from when I'm out and about on my player (note, not an ipod, don't like Apple gear myself) than having a backpack full of CDs...

    @twmac

    I know you can, just poiningt out to the other poster that that the PS4 can play music from a memory stick - rip your CDs, plop them on a stick and listen to them while you game, instead of looking at a playback screen with a CD hogging the disc drive!

    @GooseUK You can change how the share button works on the PS4. I have it set to one push screenshots - one fleeting tap nets you the screenshot, so I'd say it's just as fast as F12-ing! Reply +7
  • FuzzyDuck 09/02/2015

    @daniloazhar1 That's a fair point about having to reinstall everything once you swap the drives. Most external drives will just be SATA drives in a caddy anyway, so you can fish that 3Tb drive out and stick it in the PS4. I prefer using an internal one (it's just tidier and frees up the USB ports) but I do agree that we should have the option of using an external drive.

    As for "pirating onto USB" - you've already bought the CD, the artist already has your money. You're making a copy of it for your own personal use, not distributing it for pirating. I know all about having old CDs - I have 1,000 of them sat in front of me! I'd never use a console to play them back though, that's what my old whopper of a hifi is for.
    Reply +7
  • FuzzyDuck 09/02/2015

    @daniloazhar1

    But yet the PS4 allows you to swap the internal drive (a 5 minute job) without voiding your warranty, it also allows you to play music files off a memory stick (or external drive). Anyone who uses CDs in 2015 (and I say that as someone how does and buys them on a regular basis) has a hifi for that. Meanwhile, I can't be bothered taking videos of gameplay, but hammer the screenshot button.

    But there you go, both consoles have some functions working better than the other, so just enjoy whichever one you have (or both, or the Wii U, or PC)

  • Video: Parkouring clones run errands in Dying Light co-op

  • FuzzyDuck 08/02/2015

    @lostmuppet No, I am not "fucking" blind.

    They feature Xbox games exclusively, yes. Last time I checked, the majority of the Xbox's library is also found on the Playstation, usually with negligible differences between the platforms. Just because I own Sony and Nintendo consoles doesn't mean my head will explode from looking at a video with Xbox button prompts.

    As a PS4 owner, I can safely say that The Order is far from one of the biggest games coming up. I can guarantee you can fish it out of the bargain bins for a tenner in 6 months' time. aside from the setting, it looks utterly generic, riddled with QTEs and a shitty letter boxed view.

    Granted, Bloodbourne is gong to be a big deal - EG features regular articles about that (two last week, if I recall). So do they have a bias towards Sony for doing that?

  • FuzzyDuck 08/02/2015

    People losing their minds again over the fact this is called Outside Xbox. As already pointed out, the name is a hold over/pun from the presenters' previous show.

    As a Playstation owner, 90% of what they feature is found on that format anyway, hence I watch the show (and it's a fun watch - which is what the games' industry seems to have forgotten about. No one is losing their heads over framerates, resolution, exclusive DLC, etc. Plus, the presenters are a likable bunch).

    Sounds good and an interesting addition to a fighter, but I hope they don't hobble any of the single player content in favour of this.

    I say this as I've become super cynical about online not working properly, a bit of me wants to just sit in a ark room and play by myself and because MK9 was chock full of single player content - which really saved it and kept me playing during the PSN outage in 2011.

    it's actually closest to Abyss Odyssey, another gorgeous looking 2D platform-slash-fighting game
    That is the first time since its original release on the PS1 that I've heard Abe's Odyssey described as a (platform-slash)-fighting game. How odd.

    On topic, downloading this now, looking forward to giving it a bash tonight.

    A fair point, but you're not going to see explosive play every second. They're using tactics, baiting the oother player out, waiting o punish a mistake (although if you go watch some Daigo footage of other games, he's a really aggressive player and just goes for you).

    You don't see spectacular football for 90 minutes of a match, it's not always going to be amazing to watch.

    @KanePaws

    I take your point, but I guess I was using the piano as a different comparison - to someone who doesn't know what they are doing, watching someone playing the piano is just smeone pressing apparently random keys, when in fact they are playing scales chords, progressions deliberately. Similarly, someone watching this is saying "it's just button mashing", when in fact the players know exactly what is happening.

    And of course musical instruments can be played on the fly and require split second decisions, ever sat in on a jam or improv session? :)
    Reply +1
  • FuzzyDuck 02/02/2015

    @JensWeissflog

    Button mashing = exactly that, smashing pad and hoping for the best.

    These guys (or anyone who knows how to play a fighting game) know exactly what they are doing with every input, what every input will do, how to set themselves up for their next attack, what properties each attack has, what can combo into another attack, how to defend, etc.

    It's like saying that moving your hands randomly over the keys of piano means you can play it. Wrong, every note played by a pianist is deliberate and they know what they are doing every single time. Like these guys.

    Comments about the players being crap - I assume that they're just getting a feel for the new systems and how the game plays. Daigo is basically Pele of the FGC. GamerBee is not exactly a slouch either.

    It also has a much more muted artstyle than IV, not sure how folk aren't seeing a difference (it's built using UE4 too).

    I may have had my fill of Street Fighter (much prefer Arcsystems Works titles), but glad that this exists.

    I know what you mean!

    I remember having a school yard argument with someone that Street Fighter 2 was much more realistic than MK, because in SF2 if you hit them with a fierce kick or punch, the other character will hive a tiny spurt of blood or recoil and vomit. Meanwhile, In MK the other characters loses a pint of blood per jab to the face, and gets up after taking a spear through the upper chest.
