  • Bungie on the Destiny level cap, raids and game size

  • GamesConnoisseur 21/08/2014

    The interview above doesn't help!

    You can self organise at tower..... How?!?!!

    Dancing? Nope

    Typing in tower wide shout message? Doesn't exist

    Adding in individual stranger gamertag to Xbox Live or PSN, for friends request, only to get 99% rejection! and out of 1% acceptance, 99% rejected Raid request as too busy, already committed elsewhere or so on!

    Looks like a most painful way of getting six together at any time, I said that as experienced GoW3 Horde campaigner and reached 50th wave with 4 other mates.

    It's took lots of planning just to get together, Bungie need to make it very easy for any group to get together at the Tower, ie allocating a space for a Raid to get organised. Otherwise it ll be out of reach to many.

    Mass Effect 4 or likely without a number, is said to be not a sequel to the story arc. So suppose it will only registers the larger choices, Geth etc and nothing much on NPCs or Shepherd.

    DA:I will requires both DAO and DA2 plots to ensure continuity.

    Keep sounds like a good idea but what about those who didn't use the app but played both or either previous DA game(s)?!

  • Minecraft PS4 technical issues cast doubt over August release date

  • GamesConnoisseur 21/08/2014

    @The-Jack-Burton

    Retreading your posts a few times, made no sense to me!

    Because Sony adopted zero region locking, they cannot use global certification?! Whereas to me its would make a perfect marriage!

    Rather its Sony's corporation culture and where each region maintains its fiefdom and control, and MS are more centralised.

    Long term user of both system, always preferred MS's more fairer treatments of regions to Sony's (price differences, delays or no show over the past generation).

    However its a different issue re PSN+ offerings over the rival.

  • Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare not coming to Wii U

  • GamesConnoisseur 21/08/2014

    I m loving my family's Wii U, both for family entertainment and for solo gaming with likes of Zelda HD port and looking forward to Bayonetta 1/2, X etc.

    What's is evident is that Wii U doesn't not only have appeal for publishers but wider gaming community, casual users or hardcore alike. Just look at the numbers of posts since article first appeared last Thursday.

    78 posts so far!

    Whereas a day or two in equally headline grabbing topic for Xbox One or PS4 would generates up to thousand or half that.

    Know what? I doesn't give a fig a long as Nintendo still produces the good and the few third party publishers, just as it's been in N64 and GameCube days.

    Far, far preferable to the masses of me too rushes of Wii shovelware titles from third parties, and as others say most will get multiplatform titles like COD etc on Xboxes/Playstations or PC over Wii U anyway.

  • Forza Horizon 2 proves the driving genre is back at its best

  • GamesConnoisseur 20/08/2014

    MS haters won't really see anything positive to say re FH2, if its was being developed for Sony and PS4, they would likely sing a different tune!

    Don't bother trying to argue the positives, I think its look just fine but I m sitting on the fence about the game until it's been reviewed and stress tested by game buying public, as my problem is I usually never bother to finish or get very far with racing/car sim games. Bored to death with GT5 etc etc

    So question is more about how much of my interest would FH2 be able to maintain? Variety of things to do? AI opponents? MP features? Competing with mates AI/lap times and so forth.

    These factors are more important than the eye candy effects in keeping my interest!

  • Sony confirms "reduction in workforce" at inFamous dev Sucker Punch

  • GamesConnoisseur 20/08/2014

    Sony are just a business like everyone else, if their competitors looks like they will never be able to catch up, and third parties/partners are making exclusives games for them. Why take far more risk to continue to subsidies first party games?

    Just make enough, let everything rolls and rake in the money!!

    Of course its bit more than that but I m hoping people realise Sony aren't in it out of goodwill and as the wider Sony corporation aren't in a perfect financial health, and so the entertainment division needs to be more effective and be as lean as possible.

  • BioShock 1 announced for iPhone and iPad

  • GamesConnoisseur 04/08/2014

    KOTOR on iPad had suprising well thought touch screen control method where you can easily change to running pace and controlling direction of run too. Very important for exploring maps type of game like KOTOR, but had no problem with the combat as it's essentially a turn based game what with pause being key to the winning strategy.

    However that said, I won't bother with BioShock, as GTAIII experience taught me you can't put shooter/fast action console game on touchscreen and hope to get away with it!

    KOTOR yes, BioShock no.

    If only a month subscriber then obviously won't show its value, as much as a person who been subscriber from day one would like me.

    What more as I got all three platforms, the value from single subscription over the past years been simply astronomical! Paid for itself many times.

    1: Sony wouldn't want a big competition to their own subscription service is a correct assumption I think, but don't think EA new service will be the only one. I expect more big publishers to offer similar at some point.

    2. I am not keen on sports titles and EA portfolio is so full of sports and so I think I might give this a miss, but if I was offered to play a good variety of titles for that price, how would I say no?!!

    3. Good for Xbox One owners if they managed to snag a service with MS assistance, boo hissing just cos its on X1 just hypocritical as if it was provided on PS4, we ll hear a different tunes?! Console is just console and X1 surely need this more than PS4 to have a more level playing field?!

    In all a good idea but will wait and see how it ll go in long run.

  • Titanfall reveals its second DLC pack Frontier's Edge

  • GamesConnoisseur 25/07/2014

    All this bitching re Titanfall, got me asking myself was it really any good?!

    Mmm, just online shooters.

    Played COD Ghost, BF4, Killzone, and Titanfall in the past six months, I would rank Titanfall top then Killzone second, BF4 then Ghost.

    Simply by the hours put in, and where I reached gen 10 purely cos I wanted to beat all challenges, but that said once done so, it's pretty far less engrossing. So something Respawn could consider, adding a new series of challenges/gen.

    I still never prestiged any other game, it was often enough just to sample a bit here and there.

    So Titanfall did something right whatever the critics say, of course there's room for improvements as with any game, and nothing, not even Destiny will be able to keep your attention forever!

    I likewise think matchmakings and lengthy loadings is something I had to bear, especially as there's often a situation where gotten through 5 minutes of it just to turn up at the epilogue for just few seconds!!

    Delighted as I got 3DTV, and finally can watch Gravity 3D and such on PS4, but was there ever an article in EG where they announced MS adding the 3D playback feature or they just didn't bother until Sony announced theirs?!

    Afterall.. http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2014-07-23-now-tv-has-arrived-on-ps4 where EG put subtitles below the headline, 'still waiting for Xbox One' and seemed missed an equal chance of saying similar for Sony?!!

    Dunno why you been negged, but Shadow Complex was one of my favourite Xbox Arcade game. I would likewise rush out to download Shadow Complex 2 if it was out.

    Its a highest compliment for any other Metroidvania game to be likened to Shadow Complex. Sure Metroid and Castlevania were the genre setters, but recent best example of the genre is still Shadow Complex I would say.

    As it's been described as such, I m set to buy Counterspy, probably will game it most on Vita but delighted with cross buy feature, as no dilemma as to which platform.

  • Here's why you should care about Hyrule Warriors

  • GamesConnoisseur 22/07/2014

    I bought and tried 3 or 4 such titles over the years, pointless I know now as I don't take to the genre. I can't bother myself to care after repeatingly mashing buttons to cut down huge, huge number of faceless enemies.

    This is my viewpoint and it's not shared everywhere, so I accepted that this sort of games may have a strong following but I m just not a suitable fellow member!

    Just as much as not everyone a fan of 4X, strategy, text adventure, fighting game and so on.

    However I got and played almost all Zelda games, but darn me, I m quite bothered if I had to give Hyrule Warrior a miss! Maybe I could rent it via Boomerrang games rental.

    @gamefan @Kaarloss

    That's my biggest fear, if Wii U breaks down or get stolen, how the heck can I do a transfer or a restore?!!

    Nintendo should copy Sony and MS in linking not just digitial purchases, but cloud saves. So you can just reset replacement console as main console and restore it.

    It was heavensent for a handful of occasions when my Fat PS3 YYLODed and slim PS3 bricked after firmware update. One occasion of X360 RRODed, but no problems yet with X1, PS4 and Wii U.

  • What if every PC game could run on your tablet?

  • GamesConnoisseur 19/07/2014

    I love my iPad, use it daily for an every day consuming tablet stuff. PC gaming is NOT what I expect from iPad!

    That said I still thought it was pretty great to be able to play a port of KOTOR with a good working touch control methods, so some games can work well, if its got pause/turn based then yeah why not. Baldur's Gate does it well. Steve Jackson's Sorcery series completely overhauled to work on tablet. Hearthstone works brilliantly as well as Magic the Gathering and so on.

    However if I need to use proper controller to play say, a FPS/TPS then hell, I ll just rather plug in controller to a proper gaming device with big screen rather than a tablet!

    All software is digitial yes, but those that came on PHYSICAL media, cartridge, cassettee tape, floppy disk, CD, DVD, BD-DVD and so forth differs to those that arrive purely digitially ie downloading.

    I think we all know what we meant when calling it digitial or physical, at some point in future, or already the case for mobile phone/tablets. The need for such distinction disappear, as there's no alternative than the digitial method.

    Ahem, it's given we know, that the term doesn't refer to digits of our fingers!

  • BioWare surveys fans for Mass Effect 4 input

  • GamesConnoisseur 15/07/2014

    @Histeria

    Asking for idea may not be the right comment, but still, we do not see James Cameron/George R.R. Martin asking fans for their input on which features they would want to see more of in the next project?!

    That may indicates a lack of confident in what makes the franchise work?

    Its may be better to say its more of a question of how to balance the 'ownership' of the favoured franchise, such as Kickstarter projects where feedbacks are more crucial but it also can be a difficult process.

    With Mass Effect trilogy, they never had survey did they? So why now? Especially after the ending hullabaloo and so seem to be trying to win back plus points?!

  • GamesConnoisseur 15/07/2014

    Second that if BioWare NEEDED to ask for ideas, then maybe they shouldn't make Mass Effect game!

    Design by the committee is difficult enough, but design by the focus groups/surveys... Recipe for a disaster!

    Need a single same director/writer with a central vision to keep all the elements together, that how most successful franchises began, if not how they ended up. As usually at some point, another person steps in, or the studio/publishers wanting to include more popular theme ie FPS/action/sexy femme fatale etc. then the franchise get diluted, lose focus and so forth.

    But we also expect each iteration to feel new, not stale same old thing. So a balancing act of enough innovations and yet familiarity.

    To be honest I don't feel there's a need for Mass Effect 4, even to balance out the ill feelings from the ending, I mostly want a proper KOTOR game. Heck time is ripe for HD remaster of KOTOR 1 and 2 then brand new KOTOR 3!

    Won't happen... Except in my own head,

  • What to expect from the Destiny beta

  • GamesConnoisseur 15/07/2014

    I ll be probably one of the few to try both versions!

    PSN pre ordered Destiny, and so doesn't need pre-order key as it ll just download, and my son wanted to try X1 version as he got his mates, and so preordered via Amazon. Got the redeem code entered and waiting for the three keys to be released on 23rd.

    If Jack thought it was guff, then just cancel the preorder, if not then no problem, though my wallet will be weeping!

    As a rule, I try not to get more than one version of the game, as in the past gotten into the filthy habit of getting two or three versions! X360, PS3 and PC. If get another version nowadays, its ll be mostly cos of Steam sale and trading away the other.

    Anyway, I ll be in position to give comments how the each version actually differs, in feel, ie using respective controller, matchmaking/online experience beyond just the standard pixel counting!

    Roll on the Beta.

    For the record, I still totally object to the idea of one set of consumers shelling out same for an inferior/incomplete product, whether its Xbox or Playstation. Also one year timed exclusive, is pretty long to wait and 95%+ of gamers will have moved on! Remember I actually chosen PS4 version as my main version.

  • Tech Analysis: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

  • GamesConnoisseur 12/07/2014

    Witcher 3 will excels on all platform it's certainly look like, yes fully agree that 1080p with tearings are totally unacceptable compared to stable 900p which I would easily live with.

    I m actually considering PS4 or PC version over X1, PC with moddings ability may wins the day eventually. I do often get X1 version of a game over others, mainly if its not too mature for my 12 years old son and that he would love the game!

    Hence The Evil Withins and so on will be only appearing on my PS4/PC and not his X1. That its a bit inferior matters less to me.

    On PC I do often downgrade my resolution one or two steps backward, not because of my PC inability to runs at that resolution with the full effects but because the fonts used for the subtitles can be too small to read!

    I m Deaf and so subtitles are essential for my gaming, so the point is that I often switches between the resolutions, and can see compromises, most of the time are hardly that noticeable. However yes you can see the increases/decreases if you switches between both but over longer run, your mind forgot and get immersed anyway.

    So all the 'lolz 900p gaming, I m playing at 1080p' are meaningless for me, as actually 900p are more than just damn fine!

    The game is not an improvement over the last version, I love Civ in all its form, got all games in its series, and most variations of 4X genre such as Empire Earth or Call to Power. Civ Rev 2 as a Civ lite for the mobile is a fine idea, portable empire building on the go.

    Unfortunately there are better strategy game on iPad out now, also if you already got Civ Rev 1 then there's almost no need to get Civ Rev 2. At all.

  • Halo 2's Coagulation remastered for Halo: The Master Chief Collection

  • GamesConnoisseur 07/07/2014

    An excellent collection, even though ONLY Halo 2 getting full on Xbox One porting, whilst Halo 1 only porting X360 across, but all four getting 60 fps and I believe 1080p.

    The big thing for me is the ability to play 100 maps on one disc! Everybody who got the collection WILL have access to all those maps and ergo we will all be spoilt for choice!

    Hardly anyone playing UT games, but if Epic were to release UT collection updated for 2014, you bet my ass there would be huge surge of online gaming on UT for a while, and that's to me is worth buying for the collection.

    Second the proposal to port the past classical SERIES to current gen, sure would be better for new games but we all know publishers are too cautious for a good reason. Too many publishers failed to keep afloat and so why not commit to three goals at one time; ongoing strong franchise, new IP/franchise and revitalising past classical franchise. I m all for that.

    @Achtung_Englander

    Yeah, a good example, we often see sequels and reboots in movies. However, their F2P situation doesn't exist as in gaming, other than maybe competing for the same audience with the free to view youtube/streamings.

    Piracy exists for both though. Also Movies relies on income more than just from box offices, there sales from premium movie channels, DVD, TV, repeats.

    Movie industry been around for a long time, there been slump and rise periods of box office sales. We may learn from them.

  • GamesConnoisseur 26/06/2014

    F2P almost universally poor, forced gameplay mechanics, but there's few gems like LoL, Planetside 2 and Hearthstone. But for every gem we get 20 Dungeon Keepers.

    The question is why?

    It's the economy stupid.

    Just as games industry has moved on from the arcade coin operated days, so 1up, 3 lives, average 3 minutes gaming gave way to an eventual AAA blockbuster franchises as the pinnacle of industry.

    The economy of developing the games gotten more expensive every generation, and with fixed but dropping real term retail price of games. SNES games used to cost 60 and two decades on newest gen games finally gotten back up to 60, but won't stay there long. Indeed the salaries, mortgages, living costs quadrupled since then. Costs of making higher definitions games with far richer multi layered detailed worlds just much more expensive.

    There's just ain't room for anything less than super successful AAA franchises, SquareEnix released their disappointed with the Tomb Raider sales figures. Later revised, but still, a case in point even if strong name like the Tomb Raider didn't sell enough to make it worthwhile?!

    Used to see large numbers of AA games/developers, excellent but not sold in massive numbers dried up. They got shuttered.

    So it is economy that encouraged the rise of smaller and affordable to run indies, going back to the 80s and F2P just replaced the coin operated arcade scene.

    As there are still plenty punters who happily chunked in 10p/microtransactions to keep these going. F2P really not aimed at the serious gamers like us.

    The problem is more about how we, gamers, aren't enough to support the old model. But I am not worried if we still get to see Witcher 3, Evolve etc coming our way.

    We can moans and dump shits on F2P, wails how Namco gone down the drain, how excellent developers has to sell their souls to do F2P.

    It's the economy, stupid.

    Come on, how many games down the time, shown breasts far bigger than an average girl, not a single small proportioned pairs I ever come across in any game?!!

    Ergo everyone who is involved with such inclusions are thinking the same if not always explicitly spelled out.

    Good luck, Mwhahaha and all that

    Sheesh

    Of course X1 will not do well in Japan, what with stronger competitors in Sony and Nintendo, as well as dying consoles market what with handheld and mobile gaming.

    Its a strong statement of intent from MS that they will continue to support the weak region with solid line up, obviously some publishers may not bother to include X1 or provide exclusivity to PS4. The advantage of all current gen platforms (X1, PS4, Wii U and PC) being more closer together and easier to port across assets means won't cost as much to include X1.

    Probably more expensive to make the X1 exclusives translated just for the Japanese market with a low install base, than it is for the new multi platform games in Japan to include the X1 version as well!

    If they really aren't going to bother with the PC version, then tactically, the best thing for them is NOT to comment on PC question AT ALL.

    So I felt they are either seriously consider the option, ie if X1 sales aren't big enough to float the franchise as much as they need or already committed and scheduled it in, but DONT want to lessen X1 sales until after the release.

    Just look at Rockstar keeping quiet about PC version (plus current gen) just to keep selling the last gen for as long as possible. Heck that what everyone does, cars, Hoover and so on.
