  • Overwatch: Blizzard answers the big questions

  • HeroJez 09/06/2016

    All I know is that with an i7/670/12GB PC, running the game on High-Ultra at 60fps through Virgin 152mb internet, I CONSTANTLY get the Lighting Connection Icon on the top left-side of the screen. Overwatch is the ONLY game this happens with. No problems on WoW, BFBC2, TF2, etc.

    So, whatever, you can talk about the game being mechanically this or that, and tick this, or 60hz that, but actually, while it's fun, it hasn't been made well enough, in my opinion. Too many people have connection problems for the fault to lie anywhere but in the network code or at Blizzard HQ.

    As for hero balance, they should have sorted that out during development. There's ZERO chance that the designers played all through alpha, closed beta, and open beta without being Flash-Fanned by McCree as a tank. He should just fan upto three bullets, not 6. :/

    Not sure where I stand on the Zenny topic. On one hand, he's brutal if played well in Quick Play. But the low HP, LoS orbs, and mobility are an issue. Personally, I would drop some of his Discord damage, allow 100%-no LoS uptime on healing orb, and keep his Ultimate. I'm just not sure you can protect healers in OW the way you can in other games.

  • Yooka-Laylee is shaping up nicely, despite a delay until next year

  • HeroJez 07/06/2016

    Something doesn't look right. Took me a while for it to click: the vast majority of the ground textures are VERY bland, there's no density or bulk or Y-axis to the foliage in many places. It feels like a student-developed game, where the assets are there, and there's some decent polish, and great art in general... but the worlds just aren't dense enough. The levels (from the outdoor ones I can see) are raised up, and fail to deliver that submersed/immersed sense of density that BK and Conker did. Starfox Adventures was another one; you felt like you were in a world instead of on it. Hopefully PTG take the time to polish and pack the worlds more. Still, looks promising. :) Reply +1

  • The Division has 9.5M registered users, exceeding Ubisoft's expectations

  • HeroJez 12/05/2016

    Registered. And about 60 active users, right? The Division is shallow, repetitive, and buggy as hell. I'm embarrassed to have bought it and won't be buying anything from UBI for a good while after release--and that's if the reviews are flawless. You just can't trust them. After Unity, Division, Blacklist, and so on. £30 isn't a bad price to pay to protect yourself from their games in the future.... it's just a shame that it was a game that so many friends pinned their hopes on. Oh well. Time for Overwatch. Reply +3
  • Why Blizzard can't please everyone playing World of Warcraft

  • HeroJez 10/05/2016

    The spider thing a lot of people don't care about. The problem with a lot of Legion development is that many of the changes (Prot, Brewmaster, MM, Survival, Ret) seem to have yanked the specs either A) back in time, to when the game was simpler, slower, and less homogenous, or B) in a completely new direction that the players didn't ask for.

    Brewmaster was intentionally a difficult tank to master, but the new designs change that playstyle... and what's come of it is a playstyle that just doesn't fit in with modern WoW raiding (leaving the tank to drop HP). And they can say what they want about 'It'll be different in Legion, etc' but they've said that in nearly every expansion since TBC. It never is. PvP, Raiding, Mana, Mobility. Eventually their grand plans for stuff to 'matter' fall by the wayside and FOTMs thrive. Healer mentality isn't to let tanks drop when they could top them off. Mythic raiders might 'get it', but for the movie casuals that the changes seem to want to entice? God knows how changing the class that they're struggling to learn ONCE AGAIN will help?

    So, yeah, I get the idea that they want the spider mount to be special, but the issues of communication and design are bigger than that. IMO, at least. They've changed so many specs for no apparent reason than 'class fantasy' that the new players never experienced, the old players don't want back, and the former players won't come back for. :/

  • Overwatch open beta extended by a day

  • HeroJez 09/05/2016

    From limited Level 23 experience:

    Mei's Ice Wall is a good counter to Bastion. You can block LoS for a few seconds, ready for Widow or Hanzo to line up some shots. Or protect Reinhardt's Charge from incoming enemy fire for a few seconds but you have to time it right or he'll hit the wall. (Mercy should have damage up for the hit and first swing, and then healing while Reinhardt regroups.) Junkrat's Concussion Mine works well, too, if you can protect him well enough to let him throw it.

  • Microsoft discontinues Xbox 360

  • HeroJez 20/04/2016

    Despite its faults, the 360 was a great console. The red ring was a... sore spot... (hehe) for a few people, but so was the YLOD? on PS360GB? I reflowed my PS3 once and lost a 360 to RROD. It was just a tough time for manufacture, obviously. We got HDMI, Bluray, and some superb games, but learnt a valuable lesson at the same time. Some great games, but more than that some great multiplayer experiences on 360 that will no doubt stand out as the consoles best feature. Reply +1
  • Ubisoft threatens to "punish" The Division players who use a popular exploit

  • HeroJez 18/04/2016

    I admit being persuaded to play The Division on the pretense that most of my gaming mates would play it, but I regret the decision and have for a while. It's so shallow, and unless you can get people online every time you are, there's nothing to do but the same quest copy-pasted into different areas. Frustrating. Reply +3

  • Firewatch has sold half a million copies

  • HeroJez 21/03/2016

    Firewatch was decent, in no short part because of the incredible aesthetics. I'm not sure the game would have done anywhere near as well without the looks, though. It was also quite linear, which is fine, but it felt like they could have done more for explorers, and have included more wildlife and natural hazards. Steam players called it a 'Walking Simulator' which was funny, but true in a way. It felt like there was just a fraction of 'something' (a gameplay element, perhaps some collection stuff) that was missing that would have added a touch more depth.

    I'm happy for Campo Santo and for gamers that Firewatch was a success. Not sure what they'll do next, but I hope they get Olly Moss back and really test themselves.

  • WildStar studio Carbine sheds nearly half of its workforce - report

  • HeroJez 12/03/2016

    It all felt a bit too tryhard for my liking. They were really upbeat (understandably) about Espers and Nexus and someshit but everyone else was just like: whatthefuck?

    It was beautiful, as you'd expect in 2014, but there was something missing. Unfortunately, whatever that 'something' was, it wasn't a colossal grind! That was there, in abundance.

    Oh well, it's a shame, but the era of MMOs are probably done for most people. The Division is fresh, sure, but I'm fairly sure that shooting humans over and over will get tiring, despite the updates. Still, who knows. Perhaps Wildstar's zaniness was just too much for people--and those same people had invested too much of themselves into WoW to justify jumping ship. That Shadowmourne isn't going to polish itself.

  • Meanwhile, at Rare...

  • HeroJez 09/03/2016

    I'm going to send a photo of a Kinect camera, because Sea of Thieves can't be anywhere near as bad as all that animals shit or the outdoors jet-skiing bollocks -- and that in itself is exciting.

    I mean, really, who takes the creators of Goldeneye, Banjo, and DKC and tells them to make something for Kinect. Depressing.

  • The Fallout fan made to destroy his records for a refund

  • HeroJez 05/02/2016

    In other news, a Eurogamer staffer is taking Bethseda to court over injuries sustained after being forced to 'destroy' and 'damage' one of its faulty products in order to obtain a refund. Bethseda had the following to say:

    "Bollocks! This is awful PR, and that guy could have lost an eye. What a bunch of shitters we are. This will cost us some credibility and some future orders. Arse!"

    Eurogamer takes a 1-0 advantage going into the second leg.

  • Watch: the first Warcraft trailer

  • HeroJez 06/11/2015

    They just haven't got the CGI right at all. Look at 1:15 when they meet in what looks like Deadwind Pass. Durotan should tower over Medivh/Lothar, or whoever it is. But they're the same height in that shot. LotR got Gandalf and the Hobbits right in 2001, I can't believe Legendary haven't even got these basics right in 2015.

    Hopefully it'll be decent, although you do wonder if the Horde victories will go down well with Hollywood types, who love a good-guy ending. I guess Durotan is a goodie, but it'll take some doing to get that across--and even more so if they try and do it without him allying with the humans.

    I wonder how far from the original story they'll drift.

  • HeroJez 31/10/2015

    @Psiloc -- I didn't say it was solid steel, you daft cúnt. YES, it was pretty much supposed to crumple on the surface and fall down... and NOT disappear INTO the building, leaving the WRONG type of engine in the 'wreckage' below. Missile, bomb, pick one. You can't take thermite in your hand luggage. Most blast energy was exerted in the first few seconds, and the smoke is a telltale sign of a struggling fire. Oh, yes, those explosive office chairs and printers. GOOD POINT!... ¬_¬ Reply -6
  • HeroJez 31/10/2015

    @brider -- No. It pretty much can't. It is subject to the laws of physics, and burns at a lower temperature that the one required to melt steel.

    @riceNpea -- No. I haven't closed my mind off. I've made an informed decision on evidence of the facts. Technology ages horribly, and there's just too much wrong with the official report and post-even actions of the US government for me (and I believe any other intelligent being) to believe otherwise. I appreciate this probably isn't the right place for a debate, so I'll leave it there.

  • HeroJez 31/10/2015

    @WhiteUmbrella -- I agree completely. How people can believe that a hollow, aluminium plane can crash INTO a reinforced STEEL building is beyond me. People don't want to admit it, but 9/11 was a scam, a fix, and flat out murder by the American Empire. The footage of the plane wing DISAPPEARING and the actors reacting to it; The fact the perpetrators were SAUDI yet they invaded Afganistan; the freefall collapse of WTC7.

    You can make a game or tell a joke about anything, but 9/11 is a terrible template, not least because such a game would only perpetuate the crumbling deception that the whole series of events was anything but an inside job perpetrated by the CIA, DoD, and co in the interests of Big Business.

    Don't believe me? Watch the videos for yourself. And listen to the analyses of scientists, eye-witnesses, and architects AND engineers.

    I think it's fair to say this will almost perhaps DEFINITELY be card/cart system where the card fits into both the controller alone (a la DS) and into the console (a la SNES) so users can play their experience across multiple platforms. It's Nintendo iOS. And as the other guys said, Bluray is expensive and by next gen, needless.

    Sounds good, as long as they get the controller right. WiiU tab is too big to be portable. 6" phones are bad enough. BUT if they get the balance right, they could be onto a winner.

  • World of Warcraft: Legion expansion adds new Demon Hunter class

  • HeroJez 07/08/2015

    Hmmmm... feels very singleplayer.

    Can't believe that they're thinking of giving everyone Ashbringer or other iconic weapons. Rare legendary drops was one thing, for the top players (at the time) caning Illi in BT, but telling Jane Smith's green-wearing Pala alt that she can have Tirion's Scourge-wrecking sword because sub-drops is awful.

    I do, however, think this is the start of what will be a fairly full, lengthy expac. It's easy to argue against that considering WoD, but they'll want a full, engaging story arch to keep people entertained. A strong patch every quarter will do that, and things might look a lot different in 7.4. If we tie up enough loose ends, or push the Legion back far enough, the developers can start some new storylines and go in different directions.

    It is very much World of Warcraft: The Kitchen Sink on the face of it, and I think the player-centric story is a mistake (weapons, ultimate hero) but I have faith that we'll see more content added, and a fairly substantial link to the expansion after this one - and there's still plenty of places to go, according to WC3 lore.
