  • The Elder Scrolls Online on PS4 and Xbox One delayed by six months

  • Ghettomurph 08/05/2014

    @Saurian Except the Bethesda team that makes the existing TES games didn't make TES Online. It was an entirely different team who have been making this for years.

    Todd Howard's team (who made Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim, Fallout 3) are most probably deep in development of Fallout 4.

    Direct your bitching at the right place.

    "Oscar Mike", "hua" etc etc are all American military sayings. After years serving in the Royal Engineers I can't recall ever saying stuff like that.

    Americanisations...meh!

  • Watch Dogs PC minimum specs confirmed

  • Ghettomurph 12/03/2014

    @sanctusmortis The 280x cards are the same. And even the older versions like the 7950/7970 etc are the same.
    Thats why I went for a 270x in the end. Besides, if I buy another 270x to run in crossifre I'll get slightly better performance than a 290x.

    @Widge No it's not just you mate. I just upgraded my card and went for an MSI R9 270x with 4gb ddr5 - cost 180! Cheapest 290x I've seen is around 500 Reply 0

    @dfernand hope youve got an NTSC-U 360 then mate coz the disc is region locked on the xbox:

    This tweet from @VideoGamesPlus_ who are based in Canada: We have region free tested the North American XBOX 360 version of South Park and unfortunately can confirm it's NOT region free. #southpark

  • Video shows off new Xbox One party and friends features

  • Ghettomurph 25/02/2014

    This video shows that Microsoft really did have their heads crammed right up their own arses before the start of this gen.

    Whoever thought that launching a new console with well used/essential features of the previous console missing should be handed their p45.

  • Titanfall preview: You say you want a revolution?

  • Ghettomurph 13/02/2014

    @7M7 I dont have any preconceptions about the game, I highly doubt I'll be buying it as I won't be dedicating all my spare time to one game. And if I do actually buy it, it'll be on the PC.

    Everything I've read about Titanfall on other websites makes it seem like it'll be a good, fun game. This preview makes it sound like utter wank.

    This preview reads like someone who already has a pre conceived opinion that the game is shit.

    Polygon's preview actually makes the game sound like it's going to be fun:

  • Xbox One won't allow players to use their real names at launch

  • Ghettomurph 16/10/2013

    I'd say something like "slow news day" but Eurogamer would rather report non-news like this to get the anti-Microsoft brigade commenting in here.

    In other actual 'news', Kotaku are reporting that Microsoft have confirmed that devs can utilise dedicated servers for the Xbone for free.

  • PlayStation 4 bundle includes Killzone, Camera, second DualShock

  • Ghettomurph 30/08/2013

    That's a bloody good bundle. Especially with a 2nd controller stuffed in as well.

    I'm pissed off that the XB1 only comes with one controller coz I don't really like the idea of shelling out yet more cash to buy another one so me and the missus can play Lego Marvel and Fifa. :/

  • Space Hulk review

  • Ghettomurph 30/08/2013

    Er, Dan. Don't want to rain on your parade or anything but this is the 1st Space Hulk game since 1996, not 1993.

    There was a Blood Angels Space Hulk game released on PC, Saturn and Playstation.

  • Saints Row 4 sells one million copies in first week

  • Ghettomurph 29/08/2013

    I'm really enjoying SRIV, well worth buying it IMHO. But I don't think the co-op is as fun as it was in SR2 or SRTT.

    Mainly because it's so bat-shit insane you and your co-op buddy can be the entire city away from each other within the space of a few seconds. I've yet to go on a co-op drive-by killing spree in SRIV but this was a regular occurrence in the other games.

    It'll be interesting to see where they go for the next game.

  • Capybara's roguelike Below is only a timed exclusive for Xbox One

  • Ghettomurph 09/08/2013

    @Big-Boss Facts? But, you got some of your 'facts' wrong fella (Dead Rising).

    As for my favourite corporation? Lol, I have both an XB1 and a PS4 preordered.

  • Ghettomurph 09/08/2013

    @Big-Boss I'll give you that the majority of your list did come to the PS3 (enjoy playing Dead Rising 1 & DR2 Case Zero on your PS3 btw as they don't exist and the only reason Mass Effect came out on PS3 was coz EA paid MS a shit ton of cash as MS published it), but you say this like it's a bad thing?

    Third party exclusives piss me off big time whether they're timed or actually exclusive. When PS4 & XB1 are so similar there's no excuse to not have games on both platforms.

    I expect Titanfall to be a timed exclusive but I'm not so sure about Dead Rising 3. It's historically an xbox franchise really if you take off your fanboy hat for a second and think about it. If it wasn't for 360 owners making the first DR a success they wouldn't have made a sequel. The fact that DR3 is Xbox exclusive makes me think DR2 didn't sell that great on PS3.

  • Ghettomurph 07/08/2013

    @ubergine So your issue isn't with the actual functionality of the dialogue wheel but rather the way in which the game was written?

    Apart from the inclusion of icons, they're pretty much identical mate. Top for good, bottom for bad, middle usually for neutral (sarcastic in DA2). Occasionally there's extra info etc. It was the same in Jade Empire as well from what I can remember.

    I agree that in DAO the dialogue system was better as it was really all just shades of grey in what was on offer. That was a throwback to the way the dialogue systems worked in Baldur's Gate / Planescape / Icewind Dale etc.

    I do disagree with the way you casually say that DA2 plays itself. It functionally operates more or less identically to the ME games. I've played it through 3 different times, different ways and had slightly different outcomes to stuff - just like in Mass 1,2 & 3. That's why I don't get how you can say Mass Effect works well, DA2 doesn't?

  • Ghettomurph 07/08/2013

    @ubergine I'm a bit confused about what you said earlier about the dialogue wheels. You said it was well done in Mass 1 but horribly implemented in DA2. But they operate in almost identical ways and have done since IIRC, Jade Empire. Good at the top, bad at the bottom, extra info sometimes etc. ???

    Pretty sure Jade Empire started the dialogue wheel thing in games that Casey Hudson was project lead on. He wasn't project lead on DAO (different team) which is why that game had a different dialogue system. DA2 just seemed to lose its way coz it was rushed. I still enjoyed it.

    Just like when that little guy made a Master Chief player model for use in Unreal Tournament 3 on PC & PS3 and they said it was fine and didnt ask for it to be removed......proper cunts.

    @KORNdoggy All I've read from you in this comments section is you banging on and on about how you dont like kinect and wont buy an Xbox....great, dont buy one then.

    Your last post also categorically states that because the first kinect doesnt work flawlessly the new one won't either. Shame that youve not even seen or used the thing, yet you seem to 'know' how it will work...

  • Ex-Eidos Montreal founder says Square Enix "has some things to learn" about selling games

  • Ghettomurph 24/07/2013

    @ImpericalLegion I agree with you about Deus Ex HR. The original Deus Ex is my favourite game of all time and I loved HR. Like you said, the only thing that was really pants were being forced to complete the boss battles in a specific way as they were outsourced.

    So no, it definitly was not casualised at all and had way more in common with the original than it did with the casualised Invisible War.

    I do however disagree with you about Fallout 3. I loved the original Fallout & Fallout 2 but I also loved Fallout 3 & NV. They were a different take on the franchise mechanics-wise but still managed to keep the whole Fallout experience I thought.

  • Rockstar renews trademark for MIA PS3-exclusive Agent

  • Ghettomurph 23/07/2013

    Thing is, Rockstar North are supposed to be making Agent. Rockstar North make the GTA games so Agent will have probably had a skeleton crew working on it until GTA V winds down. Which is probably why nothing has been seen of it for years. Reply 0

    Tomb Raider was a 'failure', Thief sounds like its been in development hell, Deus Ex The Fall turned out to be a bloody mobile game, the next Legacy of Kain/Soul Reaver game Nosgoth is a multiplayer only game. Not to mention all that is coming out of Japan is Final Fantasy games...

    @unclemonkey Yep. Got the same one I bought when it was released. Got a backup as well in case parts fail. Sits next to my HDPVR and Gamecube.
    Never had a problem with my VMUs but then Ive got a cable for connecting my DC to a pc so I can backup my saves. (I assume thats what you meant by VENus?) and as we were talking about 'back in the day', dlc back then wouldve been small enough to fit onto the available memory if it existed, wouldn't it you fool?

    2mbps sounds like the 'free' internet you get with Sky etc.

    I really don't see what the issue is with this. Basically all Dan is saying is that they're still going to be creating content for the game after the game goes gold.

    This only becomes an issue if the content is anything over a gig.

    Where are all these mythical people who are buying internet enabled devices that don't have access to the internet?

    MS need to do some SERIOUS housecleaning coz since day one their PR has been utter bollocks!

    @redcrayon That's fine, I haven't said people have to be impressed with the Xbox have I?

    I outlined my point of view and I'm not that arsed if the PS4 has faster memory and a slightly better GPU. I have a gaming PC if I want the best kit.

    But I'm not the type of person to jump into a story about MS and/or Sony and start with the whole: "hur hur, (Xbox/Sony) is shit" - not that I'm saying you do that mind! :P

    I'm getting REALLY bored of all the MS hate on this site atm. All of the ppl proclaiming Sony to be some kind of messiah have a really short memory.

    I consider myself to be a pretty platform agnostic, early 30's gamer and I just don't see what the big deal is. Sure, Microsoft's PR has been a complete clusterfuck and I don't necessarily agree with no headset and Kinect being forced on me. But as the original Xbox & the 360 have both been my primary systems, I'm going with the XB1.

    Personally I'm more invested in the exclusives that MS have over the ones that Sony have and MS have the money to splash out on 3rd party exclusives whereas, lets face it, Sony haven't as the company has been haemorrhaging money from all of the other parts of their business which is why Kaz is now the boss and Mark Cerny is the lead architect. You can bet your arse that if they weren't in such a financial position some crazy Japanese dude would've poured millions into a custom CPU setup yet again! :D


    On the subject of this SDF-baiting story - who really gives a toss if MS are trying to sell the Xbox to businesses? Sony did the same thing with the PS3.

  • Mass Effect 3 Wii U includes day-one DLC From Ashes as standard

  • Ghettomurph 14/09/2012

    @GamesConnoisseur: you say that the WiiU version is the definitve version coz it includes From Ashes right? But I think youve missed the bit in the first paragraph that says 'Mass Effect 3: Special Edition'.

    This says to me that the SE version of Mass 3 for WiiU will be the equivalent of the N7 Edition for 360/PS3/PC. All of which included From Ashes.

    I'd say the standard edition still wont include it going from the wording of this article.

    At 160msp its not an impulse buy, but then its not like Bioware are saying people need it to play the game.
