  • Bethesda literally cannot produce any more Pip-Boys

  • George-Roper 28/07/2015

    Everything that's wrong with gaming, summed up.

    Seriously, people think this is worth all that extra expense? It's a plastic shell. You could get one of those running armstraps for a fiver and it would do exactly the same thing.

    There are some special editions that you can tell are worth it. The Homeworld Collectors edition is amazing.

    This however is cheap, tacky shit.

  • An hour with Randy Pitchford

  • George-Roper 24/07/2015

    Yeah, well, AVP: The Next Generation was WAY worse than A:CM and like he said in the interview, the multipayer remains, to this day, a great addition.

    I completed A:CM. Not because I wanted to get my moneys worth out of it, I've got plenty of other games that I threw on the shitpile and never returned to.

    I enjoyed it for what it was, a fun shooter based on one of my favourite movies.

  • How's Xbox doing?

  • George-Roper 22/07/2015


    But how much of that is from people buying full priced games and from people buying games in sales.
    What, is that the sales that see a game drop from 54.99 to 39.99?

    When by that point, the same game is available sub 20 from retailers?

    Those sales?

    You have no proof but don't let that stop you bashing people who buy digital games on their consoles.
    I have all the proof I need about XBL/PSN being a viable, revenue generating venture, it's all right here to see in these financials.

    Microsoft doesn't make a 58% year on year increase in revenue happen via sales.

  • George-Roper 22/07/2015

    Xbox Live transactions revenue increased $205m or 58 per cent, reflecting "increased users and revenue per user".
    And this is why stupidly overpriced games on XBL/PSN will continue.

    Whilst there's a market for lazy dumbasses to play 20 more for a game on XBL than from Amazon, MS and Sony will continue to pursue it.

    Fucking idiots, with no sense of damage that they're doing to our hobby.

  • Project Cars Wii U canned, "simply too much" for hardware

    Problem is, rumors suggest NX will still be weaker than ps4 / xbone. I hope they are false though, as by then 3 years have passes..
    Imagine that.

    Nintendo need to buck the system and drag themselves out of the rut they're in. Screw gimmicks, the Wii was right time, right place and the Wii-U has proven they can't trust gimmicks to get them through.

  • Meet the man cleaning up after the Godus disaster

  • George-Roper 20/07/2015


    Can't be bothered anymore. But...

    Your definition of life changing is entirely subjective. I think being a game god to thousands of players would be a pretty neat prize, if and when it happens.
    No, I think you'll find 'life changing' is meant to be just that. Life changing.

    Being a temporary God to an unknown amount of players, in an unknown video game, that didn't generate enough funding from Kickstarter in the first place to succeed, that doesn't have an ETA on when the 'life changing' bit of code will be in place, is in fact..

    Not life changing.

    At all.

    You don't like concise? Let's try verbal! Verbal's good.

    You're continuing to insist that being somewhat disappointed is the same as being "fucked over". There is no way to respond to that.
    Not at all.

    I'm disappointed now and then. Everyone is. But again you're very oddly trying to shift the blame away from PM.

    He promised a life-changing prize with Curiosity. Now, for a lot of people, 20,000 is life changing. For a lot of people, a house is life-changing. A job is life-changing.

    Being a temporary 'god' in some unfinished game, with no ETA on when it will be ready, is in no way, whatsoever, 'life changing'.

    Forget the MTs. If he'd got 10,000 people chipping away against the cube, daily, then that's 10,000 people who've been misled about the prize.

    I keep trying, then I notice my head is in my hands again, and so I delete what I wrote and write that instead.

    I can't count the number of potential life changing opportunities I've had that have been somewhat disappointing...oh...sorry...have completely fucked me over.
    Sorry, in no way is that anaology appropriate. In this case, the details were directly out of the guys hands.

    Seriously. I can't counter that. It just hurts, right here, behind the deep crease you people cause in the middle of my brow. If it wasn't all so destructive, it would be laughable. And then I could just laugh.
    I've never in my life seen such a torrent of nonsense.

    Here are the facts...

    1) He Kickstarted Godus, going in under the amount he needed to make sure he got 'some' money. Fact. Stated and plain as day.

    2) He put Godus out on Early Access on Steam, because he'd underfunded the game on Kickstarter, so big fuck you to the Backers. Fact.

    3) Curiosity had a prize that was life-changing. And backed up by MTs, just in case you wanted a better chance of life-changing. Pure hype, complete bullshit and lies with a prize that not only has not materialized but has no ETA on when it will. Fact.

    Fact. Fact. Fact.

    You can't refute any of this, it's all out there to see.

    Nobody "fucked over" the Curiosity winner. Nobody. You've made that up. It's one of many completely bogus justifications you relentlessly spout.
    I have no idea how you've come to this conclusion and I most certainly have not made anythng up.

    This very site reported on the God that PM forgot, in detail, and nowhere in that report did I get any impression that the winner was treated with the gusto that PM had led everyone to believe they would have.

    A life changing prize, lest we forget.

    Had that prize been validated towards a video game, "A prize granting power over gamers in my next video game" then would it have generated the same level of hype? Absolutely not.

    Lies and deceit.

    Henderson being neglected is certainly regrettable, but is not by any stretch of any reasonable imagination a "fucking over".
    He was the winner of a supposedly life changing prize. If that's not being fucked over, given what's happened to date, I have absolutely no idea how else to describe it. Had PM retracted the prize, it would be no different right now because there's no ETA on when Godus will be in the right shape for the prize to even BE granted.

    PM explained the reason for Curiosity at the time. Even did a talk at Develop about it. It was all very open and candid and widely reported on. If you weren't listening then, some wild hunch makes me suspect you won't listen now - hence efforts to explain ending in me with my head in my hands.
    No, that's really great and all.

    So had someone bought the diamond chisel or whatever it was, would PM have given them a refund do you think?

    What if the winner himself had splashed out?

    Yeah. It's easy to say "But it was never intended to make money" when the fact is, the design very much allowed for it to happen.

    Milo existed. I know a programmer who worked on it for, oh, two or three years I think. It was never going to come out
    Wasn't it?

    When Kinect was bigged up by PM, at what stage did he say it wasn't actually a game that was going to be released, then?

    My #1 problem with the mob is that they are 100% convinced they are right, no matter how little they know about how games are made or the people who make them.
    Again, blame shifting.

    'The Mob' didn't put Curiosity together.

    'The Mob' didn't Kickstart and then Early Release Godus.

    PM did.

    'The Mob' didn't then fuck over the Curiosity 'winner'.

    PM did.

    I guess you'll need to explain this one.

    You said Curiosity didn't make money. You said the MTs didn't make money.

    So why would the first project by 22cans be a loss-making project? For what reason?

    Less ambiguity please, if you know something the rest of of us don't, let's just hear it. Otherwise, Curiousity was released with the intent on making money, on the back a lie that the winner would experience a 'life changing' prize.

    The thousand hammers were somewhere between a joke and a thought experiment. Not a single one was expected to be sold, and the last I heard not a single one had.
    But that's not the point.

    He still did it. He still put those MTs in place. People could have still bought them.

    Let me put this another way. If Curiosity, being F2P, wasn't designed or intended to make money out of MTs, then what was the purpose of any of it?

    Who would knowingly go into a game, with a brand new, small development team, with the intention on losing money?

    Makes. No. Sense.

  • George-Roper 18/07/2015


    No, I really don't. Godus should never have been funded. It was backed on reputation rather than concept, despite the fact that the reputation in question was two decades of over-promising and late under-delivery
    And it was also released to Steam on Early Access. And it was also released to mobile platforms too.

    So quite apart from the initial funding of it, where else does the blame lay? On those Steam users who decided to back an Early Access title? Or the many who picked it up on mobile and dropped some cash in too?

    I have no more sympathy for a Godus backer than I would have for someone who'd backed a dev with no experience or track record promising the world on a transparently inadequate budget. (I also wouldn't attack those devs either.) That's all notwithstanding the fact that while Godus might be a)late and b)rubbish, it is actually still in development!
    Blame shifting in all its glory. The buyer in this scenario isn't to blame, no matter how much you try to shift it across.

    So, that's one person the attack was in aid of - even though in the interviews he's done he didn't actually seem all that "stung" by the "deceit and lies" - who else was it for? Perhaps you could describe how you, personally, have been "stung" so savagely that you cheered every ounce of what he got?
    Here's the thing. You could look at this as 'just another example of many', shrug and walk on. But had the person been the head of EA at the launch of BF4, or Smedley when P2W was introduced to H1Z1 2 days before release on the back of it NEVER coming in, or even that cock who took everyones money and promised the earth with DayZ then fucked off to do something else, it was just the right time and the wrong place for PM, because gamers are customers. Gaming is a massive industry, earning billions out of us, but this was the tipping point. It felt like finally someone was taking one of many to task and asking the questions that MANY sites would refuse to ask, point blank, due to reprisals against ad revenue and for who knows who in the industry.

    He deserved it. Every single last drop of it.

    He isn't in this for a love of the industry, he's in it to see how far he can monetise people. Curiosity was designed, from the ground up, to see how far he could take it. And he did take it. Lots of it. And promised a 'life changing' reward that not only never materialized but the guy who won it was treated like fucking shit along the way. This guy specifically may have been fine about that, but what if it had been someone who threw down for the diamond chisel or whatever it was, and won based on that?

    Here's how I've seen this unfold: a few years ago the gaming community seemed content to let Molyneux fill the roll of the industry's loopy uncle. He'd come down from his attic, tell us he had a brilliant new invention, and we'd all roll our eyes and say "Of course you do, Uncle Pete!" and he'd sod off back to his attic again.
    Did they? I didn't. Not since the lie of Milo and Kate, have I just thought he's a loopy uncle. He was selling the hardware based on a fucking game that never, ever existed. Showing us all the potential for Kinect that he knew he wouldn't be delivering. Whether he was in Microsofts pockets or not I care not a single fuck about, because he still knowingly did it.

    Then the mob turned on him, because sadly that's how a portion of the games community operates these days. I don't understand why.
    It's so simple. Because he projects this image of being a 'keen gamer', yet his projects are based on F2P and monetization of gamers' impulses to want to win.

    If he was Kickstarting a spiritual successor to Dungeon Keeper, with zero DLC and MTs, this would be a whole other conversation. But he's not. Nor will he ever. Hes only interested in milking the fuck out of people. End of.

    I'm no big Molyneux fan, but when has he ever "taken people's money"? People give him their money. Voluntarily. Why, I have absolutely no clue.
    Of course you know, it's because he bigs himself and his ideas up, promises the earth, builds the hype and then doesn't deliver.

    How they can give him their money and then expect him to somehow miraculously stop being the world's most famously dizzy unfocussed over-promising dreamer, I have even less of a clue.
    Because hes apparently seen by some to be a well-meaning dreamer and one who may possibly, some day, deliver a game to match his golden era.

    I've followed Peter Molyneux for 25 years. In that time he has proven, repeatedly, to be a well meaning but disastrously disorganised fantasist. I wouldn't give him my money, but I also won't stand around and bray when someone decides to give him a beating for it. It's pathetic.
    It's not pathetic, he deserved every ounce of what he got. The interviewer represented gamers everywhere who have been stung by his outright deceit and lies. Or maybe you can explain how 'life changing' the thing at the centre actually was?

  • Faction-switching Mercenary Mode coming to World of Warcraft

  • George-Roper 16/07/2015

    Titled Mercenary Mode, it will introduce a shadowy figure to the game, one who'll appear in each faction base in the Ashran region during times of high queues. If you're struggling to get into the battleground action, you'll be able to simply approach this character and fight for the opposing faction... as if both factions hadn't been ramming their heads into each other hour after hour, day after day for ten, long years.

    When you eventually join the battleground, you'll also automatically be assigned an entirely new race from the opposing faction.
    Yet more dumbing down, rather than addressing the core reason why there's imbalance in the first place.

    Its fast becoming grey mulch, where decisions have little to zero impact on the gameplay.

    Just die already.

    Anyone will an active ESO Plus subscription will get the extra content for free, or alternatively it will cost 2500 Crowns via the in-game store.

    You can buy Crowns at a retailer such as GAME in a pack of 3000 for 13.49, or a pack of 1500 Crowns for 8.99. So 2000 would require you to buy one of the former or two of the latter.

    Yeah but like george you are thinking like a high end gamer.
    Not sure that's the case. He originally said...

    If you want to get into PC gaming then invest some cash. Build a good PC which will allow you to play the games with the benefits of the platform.
    What I took from that was, if you're going into a platform that scales out and doesn't lock you down, then scale out properly. Don't scale to the immediate, scale to the potential. Push the envelope, because you have a platform that will allow you to.

    But yeah, PC platform, works on several levels of several kinds of users. Go with what your budget will allow but consider the downside to making decisions on spec that will affect you 6 or 12 months down the line. If in doubt, err on the side of caution, spend a bit more, have that extra level of future-proofing.

    Nailed it.

    Every now and again, technology comes along that represents a massive step forwards.

    Gsync/freesync is that technology. Never has a game felt so solid as it does with this in play.

    It is, of course, and there are many reasons why people build PCs. But I can only go on my own experience and limiting the potential for usage, which is what the lower VRAM limits do, will only end up requiring an upgrade and probably in a short space of time too.

    I've always tried to look beyond the here and now and so far its worked. The only real exception being my previous GPUs with 3GB, that only lasted me 12-18 months. Learned an important lesson there.

    I agree, sort of, but I've always gone for the best components, rather than stuff that 'will do' and its never let me down. Removing the barriers that cause hiccups and problems, like RAM, VRAM, mechanical drives, dedicated soundcards, etc.

    It amazes me how much bandwidth is spent in the games industry talking about 1080 / 60.
    If resolution and performance were not thing that's gamers wanted, explain why now-gen are selling so well and why gamers didn't infact just remain on PS3/360?

    If we were as enthusiastic about gameplay, original ideas and story as much as we are about how quickly a game can render a scene I think we'd all be much happier.
    Who says we aren't? The two aren't mutually exclusive. The problem isn't gamers (once again blame shifting comes out).

    As I wrote before, the way PC gaming is getting so high-maintenance in terms of meeting user expectations is just going to deepen that division.
    PC gaming is not high maintenance.

    Nothing has changed, in several years, to even come close to validating your statement.

    If a company decides to release a game for a platform, any platform, then the expectancy is that the game utilizes that platform to its fullest potential.

    What if AK had been released at 720p on PS4. That's acceptable, right? Because 720p is a valid resolution, supported on all HD TVs. So what would be the problem there then?

    What if AK had been released at 20fps on PS4. That's acceptable, right? Because 20fps is a valid framerate. It's low but its still valid. So what would be the problem there then?

    Console gamers actually have it better than anyone. Pay 35-40 tops for a new AAA, play it, then sell it on ebay for around 30 (sometimes more) it really is that simple,
    Even if you're able to sell the game on Ebay, when if its so easy surely everyone else is doing it and driving the prices down, you also then have to stump 10% up to Ebay each month, then the postage cost and don't PayPal also take a cut of the proceedings too?

    Not quite 'as simple as' and certainly nowhere near the apparent easy money scheme you make it out to be.

    I know that insulting the intelligence of console gamers is one your "things" but literally no console gamer thinks that 50+ dwobload compared to a 40-45 disc is "good value" bar a small selection of people sharing their accounts to split the cost two ways
    Not really. I also insult the intelligence of PC gamers who buy new releases natively from Steam, Origin or Uplay. The only difference is, console gamers have no other choice for their digital games, so they have two choices. Suck it up or get the disc.

    The thing is, there's evidently a market for it. Sony and Microsoft wouldn't maintain a storefront that "literally no console gamer" would use.

    Fact is, console gamers do buy from PSN and XBL, at the prices stated. And enough to warrant the services continued design.

    Shitty digital pricing strike again. It's my biggest complaint of this generation. If we are downloading it from the server and taking away transport, stocking, fulfillment, and retailer costs why is it costing more???
    I think MS or Sony went on record as saying "Digital downloads present a selection of our consumers with ultimate convenience", so basically because gamers are too fucking lazy or impatient to get the disc.

    And whilst even a small percentage of accounts use XBL or PSN, the jacked up prices make up for it.

    They've got console gamers over a barrel and sadly, as crazy as it sounds, they've been convinced that 50 for a digital version of a game is 'good value'. Good enough value to justify the service continuing anyway.

  • The Taken King is the expansion Destiny has been waiting for

  • George-Roper 01/07/2015


    With the tagline I wanted to get across that there was hope for the expansion even "despite that price tag".
    The problem is, the two are directly connected.

    You can't disconnect TTK, no matter how good within the confines of its own limited DLC structure, from the price tag because that's the entry requirement for gamers.

    As an independent gaming site, as others have said, you should be hammering the pricing policy of DLC from big publishers like this. It's getting way out of control and you have the ability to contribute towards addressing it.

    It's shameful of them, really. It's like they know they have all these Destiny addicts, who'll gobble up whatever price they stick onto their feeble DLC, because "They'll throw money at the screen".

    Just an awful situation and its disheartening to see EG basically standing against common sense.

  • George-Roper 30/06/2015


    I mean, you do realise this is how it works on PS+ too?
    As it happens, I didn't. I expected the deal to be quite a bit better for devs for these services.

    Fleece, fleece, fleece, in every direction.

    She said there was "a fee paid" by Microsoft to Cherry Pop
    Wait. So when a game goes into the 'Gold' scheme, it isn't contributing any revenue, per download, to the devs? Even though Microsoft are charging for the ability to download via the cost of Gold?

    Cheap fuckers.

    As for which version to consider, it's pretty clear that the PC version comes out on top in terms of technical performance. Support for higher resolutions and hardware MSAA combine with excellent performance on a wide range of hardware to create a wonderfully polished experience from top to bottom
    But I thought PC versions of multiplats were 'mostly worse' than on console?

    If everyone were like you, pc gaming would be fucked. Pays the least, complains the loudest.
    You know absolutely nothing about me, nor the contents of my digital games libraries, or the shelves of physical discs I own.

    But hey, since when did a lack of facts ever get in your way, eh?

    Where did I endorse secondhand games??
    Where you woefully attempted to 'justify' PSN/XBL prices as not being walled-garden, when they blatantly are.

    You then went on, when I disproved the point that PC is also walled garden, to point at low-cost PC game keys not supporting the developers, when console 2nd is doing much worse than that.

    That's why.

    Sorry you weren't able to obfuscate your agenda enough.

    Would you be OK if all PC gamers started buying dodgy keys for 15?
    They're not 'dodgy' they're legitimate keys. If they weren't, Steam/Origin/Uplay/GoG wouldn't allow them to be used in the first place.

    Has that part sunk in yet?

    All this in an article about a cheap, fucked up, outsourced PC port. The irony is hilarious.
    Very poor effort to deflect away from your absurd and incorrect logic.

    Facts is facts, my friend! :D

    Oh, and on the 'cheap', 'fucked up' PC version of this game, I'll be around to see you eat your words when its fixed up and once again comes top of the multiplat list in the DF Face-Off.

    I'm not saying all pc gamers are pirates. I'm saying, if you don't want to pay what the developers are asking, why not just pirate it and paying nothing? Is 15 where some sort of guilt mechanism kicks in?
    Absolutely classic, coming from the console-POV where the 2nd hand market is destroying profits.

    At least PC gamers using legit key sites is still contributing to the coffers, whereas the 2nd hand console leech market has done nothing except take money out.

    Why bother? Torrent that shit. It won't get revoked.
    Honestly now, is this all you have?

    I've blown your pitiful argument to pieces, publically, and you resort to attempting to reinforce the notion of PC gamers being pirates?

    Do I need to get some stats that show PC-based gaming revenue, a single platform, blowing all console-platforms out of the water for last year?

    Yeah. PC gamers sure do like to avoid paying for stuff.

    Are you taking the piss? A. Most key sellers get their keys from Russian or India, want to compare prices with Hungarian / European stores. B. They're so illegitimate they don't even offer refunds.

    You do realise that big budget games wouldn't come to your platform if everyone did this don't you? VPN scum bags are the absolute worst, you'll kill the openness of your platform & don't sponsor good developers or publishers
    Quite possibly one of the most retarded things I've ever heard in my life.

    Explain how, if we were back in the 90's, this is any different to buying a game, physically, cheaper and shipping it somewhere else?

    Literally the only difference is that its digital. Differences in game prices, on region, is ancient. Nothing new here, whatsoever, apart from the delivery mechanism.

    You think 18 Batman keys are legit? :lol:
    I think you're under some kind of delusion.

    Do the keys work on Steam? Yes, yes they do.

    Are they in that case legit? Yes, yes they are.

    Sorry that I'm debunking your usual bullshit, but hey ho, eh? :D
