  • Doom's six multiplayer modes revealed

  • Katsumoto 24/03/2016

    It is a bit surprising to see no straightforward DM. It's what MO Doom was all about back in the day. Maybe it will get patched/modded in later. Reply 0
  • Get a glimpse of Doom's nine multiplayer maps

  • Katsumoto 17/03/2016

    So excited about this I'm compelled to leave a comment saying so for the first time in literally years. 2016 is shaping up to be pretty special. The video has an immediate Quake3 vibe to it. I don't even play multiplayer games anymore (too old and creaky) but this could tempt me back for a few sessions. Reply +2

  • Valve announces Steam smartphone app

  • Katsumoto 26/01/2012

    It think the point is that you have to download the app and log in so as to register your interest for an eventual place on the beta.

    This app is very appealing to me just for the chat: I'm not on my pc anywhere near as much as my iPad these days so I'm often missing out on the rare moments when a few of us are online at the same time and available for a quick game of Left 4 Dead or whatever.

  • Apple taunts E3 rivals in keynote

  • Katsumoto 06/06/2011

    I must say I really don't like the Apple approach to advertising/promotion, which always seems to be about pointing out shit the competition is. The whole "i'm a mac" thing being the obvious example.

    "350 miles south in San Francisco" - North, surely? Heh.

    You couldn't when I last tried it a month or two back! They did allow that for a while but then reverted back to you needing to call. It may have changed back again now... We can but hope!

    edit: Nope, just checked. it says "Automatic Renewal: ON" and there is no option to do anything to change it. Rarrr!

    No? Silly me."

    Grr. This is one of the most annoying things about the xbox experience there is. I should not have to sit on hold for an hour just to cancel a pissing subscription! Utterly ridiculous, and utterly cynical.

  • Metro 2033 Ranger DLC out now

  • Katsumoto 03/08/2010

    I thought this was utterly, utterly brilliant. The atmosphere was just SUPERB. SUPERB I tell you. Have to play it with Russian voice acting, natch. May use this as an excuse to revisit it. Reply +4
  • Metro 2033 sequel will be 3D

  • Katsumoto 29/06/2010

    Don't really understand some of the criticism. My PC is from 2007 and ran this brilliantly on high. Also, the game really must be played with Russian voice acting, available at the flick of a switch in options. It drenches the game in atmosphere.

    Absolutely loved it.

  • BioShock 2 creators to resurrect XCOM

  • Katsumoto 14/04/2010

    It's a shame my favourite genre seems to not even exist in the minds of devs anymore. I mean, this game may be good (just like Fallout 3 turned out to be good (although not my particular cup of tea)), but why does everything have to be first person nowadays?

    I don't buy the "modern gamers wouldn't get turn based gameplay" line. For a start, i'm sure a lot of modern gamers also gamed in the 90s, surely a lot of people would go out and buy a proper turn based tactical game? And isn't it just incredibly patronising to assume younger gamers only want FPSs? And at least Fallout 3 stuck to the "RPG" aspect, if not the isometric and turn based aspect. I can't see how an FPS X-Com could retain anything of the originals...

    Oh well. Maybe i'll be pleasantly surprised!

  • PC version of Alan Wake officially binned

  • Katsumoto 12/02/2010

    "Don't try and make out you can just spend 500 qid and then you're set for a few years. Cos that's bullshit."

    I suppose my PC must be magic then. Here's an example of an overpriced PC http://www.dinopc.com/shop/pc/viewPrd.as... that is under £500 and is specced well enough to deal with anything out there way better than a 360. I just found that immediately on google, there are much better value and better specced systems.

    Anyway, i'm not arguing that a console or a pc is better. They're both good, and I own both a gaming pc and two consoles. I just wish people wouldn't automatically jump on the "ooo you have to spend thousands of pounds and upgrade every year" thing.

  • Katsumoto 12/02/2010

    Oh for god's sake, you can get a DX11 PC that massively outpowers all the current consoles for c.£400. I know that isn't the point, as Kangarotoo pointed out, I just feel the need to remind all these idiots whose sole argument against PC gaming seems to be this notion you have to spend 1000s of pounds. The PC I got in 2007 and havent touched the insides of since still runs everything I have tried pretty much flawlessly. And it cost more like £500 than £1000. Christ alive. Reply +1

  • Katsumoto 06/12/2009

    No matter what you tell some people, they're convinced that all gaming pcs cost £1000 and go out of date within a year.

    My PC cost £700 quid 2.5 years ago and still runs everything perfectly well. It would have been cheaper if put together myself.

    PC Format this month has an article on building a DX11 pc for under £400.

    But no, if you say something enough times it must be true, so I guess i'll need to go out and spend £1000 upgrading my pc now!

    Similarly, the only elitism or snobbery i've detected in this thread has come from the obvious above named...

    So btw, I own both a HDTV & PS3 -and- a gaming pc. And no, i'm not a corporate lawyer. I "save up". How do I register on your scale? I can't be both a sad elitist nerd and also in tune with the "next-gen" can I?

    Anyway, now is the point where you call me a SAD NERD. I dare you to not use the words "nerd", "elitist", "snobbery" or put any words in capital letters in your next post.

    "Would probably work better on console anyway. "

    ! How do you work that one out? Unless of course they implemented mouse/keyboard support (which I think UT3 is the only game to do on PS3? Only one i'm aware of) in case I suppose it would be identical. Why more games don't support that I really don't know.

    This is indeed disappointing, but I suppose I was being unduly optimistic in hoping for anything better. I loved RTCW, but looks like Raven are taking steps from being "the guys who make slightly worse games than iD" to "the guys who make mediocre games". Gall.

    ("2001 Xbox outing, Return to Castle Wolfenstein" - as Darren points out, the 2001 game was PC only. It was ported to Xbox AND playstation 2 in 2003. Ahh, the good old days!)

    Wow, a games library argument. That's a new one! The PC has a games library stretching back almost two decades. I don't think the ps3 is really going to outmatch it in that department. Luckily I own both a PC and a playstation, so no worries there for me. Hurrah!

    Your 400 quid pc has ps2 graphics? Did you by any chance buy it in 2004... From pc world? My pc from 2007, now worth well under 500 quid, can run the resident evil 5 benchmark at over 60 fps without straining and at high detail. The thought of spending 900 quid on a pc is a bit ridiculous unless you want the absolute cutting edge. Reply +4

    All this "pc gamers are elitist" stuff is getting a bit old now. Seems to me that the majority of times pc gaming gets mentioned on EG is when people want to make condescending comments about how console gaming is far superior. Who is elitist in this situation?

    edit: very well Glaeken, I suppose you're right. It's not like he didn't back it up with some context though.

  • New Battle.net "similar to Xbox Live"

  • Katsumoto 06/08/2009

    Wasn't Steam out before the 360 was even released? Anyway, all this talk of "you can talk to friends across different games!" talk is quite perplexing. Surely we can already do that, and have been doing so for years? Steam enables you to chat to your friends no matter what game you're in, and the same goes for X-Fire which has been around even longer.

    edit: uh, as BuckoA51 has already said!:)
