  • Final Fantasy 15's story is being patched

  • Kremlik 07/12/2016

    Where as I agree the whole Chapter 0 and 1's ending was mostly a 'watch the movie to truly understand this part's impact we intended' - all these patches will do is flush out a little of the 'why' with certain characters, unlike how Eurogamer has suggested, don't really change the core of the game's story (unlike ME3 which basically chanced the impact of the ending). Added to that they are just giving Chapter 13 a little bit of a boost to help it be more fun to PLAY only.

    For some reason people want a reason to hate games on release ATM regardless of if it deserves it or not. Where has I 100% agree on this with bad ports and unplayable releases, FFXV is not one of these. Sure the story is a little wobbly in places but then again no FF has truly been a masterpiece in writing, but it sure as heck doesn't warrant the finger pointing and calls that SE has 'conned' people with the game release.

    If you own the game already and don't want to replay the story I'm sure that other media sources will cover the differences.

  • Surprise! Grasshopper's F2P action game Let it Die is out today on PS4

  • Kremlik 04/12/2016

    Let It Die is on the EU store now - it's an odd duck it's Running Man meets Souls meets Watch Dog 2's memes? (when you meet 'UD' you'll understand)

    Don't really 'get' it's pricing model other then convenience if you REALLY suck at farming - Hope it does well, it's certainly 'unique' in certain areas.

  • Rainbow Six Siege Year 2 Pass detailed, available now

  • Kremlik 30/11/2016

    Seeing as Ubi has opted to continue using a game for a second year and not just throw out another base version for once, gives me hope that Division may be continued to be worked on past the 'first year' season pass - it may have had a rocky start but it's getting better Reply +7

  • Assassin's Creed will resolve one of its biggest plotlines in a comic

  • Kremlik 17/11/2016

    @Bumhug360 Well this comic confirms to me what Ubi have been planning for a while, the modern arc is ending in the game only, leaving the focus on the Assassins in history.

    The comic wraps up the modern day story line for the games, however the movie is intended to continue it - consider that a soft-reboot.

    If it goes well I consider that ending up like the RE films (the CGI ones) as an optional way of extending the universe without really affecting the series as a whole. Sadly we lose the one few characters worth keeping around - Shaun :(

  • Pokémon Sun and Moon review

  • Kremlik 15/11/2016

    @ChrisTapsellEG Any reason for the lack of in game screenshots? Or is it a Nintendo contract thing?

    I know we've had a ton of combat footage from Nintendo, but things like the world UI would be quite nice to see - ORAS bottom screen 'retro UI' was off putting compared to XY

    @HotCoffee The corridor thing - isn't that just Pokemon in general?

    I don't think once we've actually had an option to do something other than the direction and order we are told to go. The Gym badges are a set order, routes are blocked off for some reason (normally a Snorlax and/or lack of HM/bike) forcing you down a set route, only THEN to be told 'team X has gone here follow them'.

    You don't really have an options until AFTER the Elite Four and then it's mega bosses/Pokemon collection stuff. It would be nice to be able to do the Gyms in any order, or just go 'nope' to having to fight 'Team X' and just go about being a trainer, not this child hero all the time..

    The issue with FFXIII wasn't the fact it was linear, nearly all JRPGs are. It was the fact XIII made it some damn clear you WERE only just running forward from set piece to set piece, coupled with the fact there is no progression in the characters you get until it's ready to jump you over to a next set of characters - until as everyone knows the game finally becomes a 'game' in it's final acts. FFXIII is more the 'FPS shooter single player' of the JRPG world then anything else.

  • Nostalrius team throws down gauntlet following Blizzard's WoW legacy server inactivity

  • Kremlik 07/11/2016

    Basically echoing whats been said above but doing this stunt WILL NOT lead to Blizzard going 'oh no, they've done that so we HAVE to do it now', Nost have done Blizzard a favour - now Blizz can slap a C&D on the project, cut ties with them and not speak of the project at all until THEY deem it worth doing.

    Nostalrius was barely a 'Legacy server' it was just the current WoW with the level cap locked at 60 (with 'perks' if you paid them), I could actually write a list of the real differences between that and 'true vanilla' but it'll take too long. As Wizbiscuit stated it's more then likely most were playing as it was free. If the server was true to it's 'legacy' status and didn't have the current 'conveniences' like the LFR/LFG system, Heirlooms and a higher gold gain (2000g these days is an hour over the MONTH you took in Vanilla), and players were asked to pay for it, then it's more then likely for the players to pick current over Legacy.

    The main drive for Legacy was the fact that the game wasn't going well for features in the current system, coupled to that patches were few and far between, people wanted that 'old WoW' feeling again. From what came out with Legion's launch and whats coming in 7.1.5/7.2 it's going back what people wanted. PVP is more then just a gear grind again, crafting actually matters, non-raid/smaller group dungeons at high end ACTUALLY are fun, the 'micro events' are going to add more reasons to login other then to run dailies and dungeon locks, MORE CLASS STUFF - heck we are getting a new PLANET as part of a free update, which would normally be expansion fodder.


    WoW doesn't need Legacy servers 'right now' what it did need was Blizzard to fall on their faces because their hubris was killing the game - thankfully WoD did that for us.

  • Diablo 3 is getting a new Challenge Rift mode

  • Kremlik 05/11/2016

    I'm hyped for both - despite the 'outrage' and 'disappointment' over the lack of a D4/D3 Expansion and the fact they are charging for the Necro unlock...

    The fact is we've had a lot more free content and patches thrown at Diablo 3 since RoS hit, people seem to forget past buying RoS Blizzard have had nothing but good will from us putting that content in - If paying for a class (or hopefully classes, Druid hype!) adds incentive to continue making new areas and features to the game, I'm game to pay a little for something.

    Yes, I'd rather have an expansion to 'fix' this arc like many (Cain actually coming back as the new Archangel of Wisdom would be nice) but if this new model leads to it funding the series to go forward and not be a money sink for them, I can wait.

  • Eve Online community rallies around family left by passing of popular 37 year-old player

  • Kremlik 03/11/2016

    Finally this is in the news - sooo much goes on with EVE outside 'player hate' and real nasty scams (see last month's one) that do hit the news, that the REAL community of EVE gets overlooked - THIS is what EVE really is, a community, through the good times and bad, people bond and in our 'fake little universe' we've made more friends and connected so many people's lives together it's sometimes feels unreal.

    BC was a friend to us all, and it's shocking and sad to see him leave us.

    Considering the team behind this version, wouldn't it be logical to assume this TR May be a 3rd person stealth based title? Seeing as Theif kinda fell on its face it would make logical sense to reboot the idea under a better IP, not to draw direct comparison to things like Dishouned 2 and try to crack into the AC fan base while it's not in media circles?

  • Final Fantasy 15 is getting a multiplayer mode

  • Kremlik 27/10/2016

    Like with last time I honestly don't understand why people are upset by what is basically side content to the main game, which you CAN wait to buy before playing. As stated in this article, the CORE story is finished, nothing has been cut from it at all, Noctis' arc WILL be told within the Ł40-Ł50 part you buy.

    All this extra content is is flushing out the other character's arcs, heck we barely know what 'multiplayer' is - all it could be is running the story bosses/dungeons as a co-op group, or as someone stated chocobo racing. As far as the other character's side story complaints are, were you upset when Virgil had 'barely' an arc in Devil May Cry 3 and 4's remasters?

    Most likely not, in fact many probably bought the games JUST on that fact, and funny thing that we are getting all this for Ł20 despite putting down more on remakes for the basic 'new character' addons.. The fact that they are continuing to add content to FFXV when they didn't need to and it NOT just skin packs (the XIII series says hi on that one).

    It being optional AFTER the main content is finished is good because IF you didn't like the core game you didn't need to buy the season pass to play it - I think people are upset because they think you have a poor experience of the game if you don't, from the looks of things it's going to be fine without the season pass

  • Japan getting new Monster Hunter next March

  • Kremlik 27/10/2016

    This version probably will be a 3DS exclusive due to the fact Capcom would have remake the UI from the ground up for the Switch considering that is only one screen.

    However that said it's not the first time we've seen a 'second gen' of a MH title turn up in a different format - add to that the rest of the world only gets the 'updated' versions now so while this may be a 3DS only title, MHXX(squared?) may be released as a cross platform title

    @carmagainagain
    Meanwhile, Pokémon Go's latest update still does not offer any way to hunt down nearby Pokémon which is the very core of the game itself.
    Except it does, in fact it's closer to the 'core' game then people want to believe..

    The issue is that there is a massive difference between the expected gameplay, in which people want 'it's directly there' to the actual gameplay with it's general location.

    The latter is more a kin to what the actual series is like, you are told the route number a Pokemon likely to be but never the place. Go shows you the general area where something is and despite general belief the game does update to say if you are walking away or towards the Pokemon - the fact it disappears means the timer ran out before you got there and it's not because the game told you the wrong information.

    As said the game is 'hide and seek' in a way, and I suspect most complaints with 'not good enough' are from people who just want to run to the location collect what they need and move on quickly focusing more on the training to gym fight then the capture itself.

  • Eve Online goes to war with gambling sites

  • Kremlik 13/10/2016

    @chucklepie they can't 'kill' trading as 90% of the game IS trade - ships are built part for part and industry (both gathering and craft) make up a large part of the sandbox, very little in the game isn't made by the playerbase.

    The market system is basically as big in EVE as with fleet battles.

  • Kremlik 13/10/2016

    @Dizz Actually CCP have been clamping down on these things for a while now. The third party game time sites have been gutted to a handful of vetted sites, the RMT battle has been ongoing for the longest time and the multiboxers have thrown a fit a few times when CCP changed the client and ToS at least twice now I think..

    It's not the first time 'gambling sites' have been targeted by CCP either, this one just happens to hit the news sites because 1) gambling site take downs are topical right now, 2) one site is saying they'll sue CCP (not going to happen they have nothing to stand on) and 3) it's close the the launch of EVE's 'free with limits' account system (which is news in itself but has already been posted last week this is just an excuse to remind people of that fact :))

  • Watch: Final Fantasy 15 is making great strides

  • Kremlik 10/10/2016

    I don't get the hate for the combat system.

    It's not turn based, sure, I agree people's 'childhoods' and love for the series are with the ATB system, it's a good system I'm 100% not knocking it 5, 6 and 9 are still my personal top three. However bare in mind that only 4-9 had that actual system (having a modded version in 10-2), where as the rest of the series as a whole either used different systems of turn based or just dropped them for action based - in fact looking over the whole series as a whole it's still 50/50-ish on turn based systems. Even with 13 and 13-2 they tried to meet people half way with the system off the hate off 12's 'automation' with the gambit system, but to be fair not that many turned off the 'press A to fight' system in 13 to realise some part of a turn based system was in there...

    Also remember XV was originally a spin off, with (and still) the Kingdom Hearts team behind it, I think this was to see if they could sell a 'pure' FF title or if KH simply was just because of the Disney aspect, which I think many can agree it was a strong sales point. Anyway most 'spin offs' of the FF games don't follow the turn based formula (Crisis Core, is more Devil May Cry then FF in a way). While 15 was still Verses 13 I can pretty much guess most didn't care about the combat, that was until the switch was flipped...

    I think the core issue is people have so many fond memories of the older games they worry about it's future, heck I agree with the fall of the original 14 and the first 13's misstep in 'what gamers wanted', I kind of agree the worry is there, but it shouldn't turn to hate. The thing is the series has always been about evolution, it's one of the first games change how RPGs played out, one of the first to make 3D gameplay fun, and TBH if 'Verses 13' DID come out 6/7 years ago, it probably would have been what we see The Witcher 3 as today for it's time.

    *warning mild spoiler for Kingsglave* To put a spin of one of the movie's themes: Don't chain yourself to the past, make a change to set the future for others. We consider the ATB system 'our childhood', but we shouldn't deny this current generation their's in this system. 15 IS a modern system, if you look at the gaming generation as a whole, action adventure RPGs is the current 'norm'. As mentioned before when we get games like Witcher and the Souls series coming out and setting new standards for the genre, is it wrong for one of the bigger RPG names to take note?

    On the plus side it's not like SE have abandoned the turn based system on the whole, the Bravely series is good, heck despite being mobile games Brave Exvius and Record Keeper are fun games.

    In the end the combat may be not 'traditional' for the core series, but damn that game looks good, I can't wait to see where it goes.

  • Elite Dangerous has a "heat meta" and Frontier just poured cold water over it

  • Kremlik 27/09/2016

    *puts on flame heat shield*

    It's funny really as a lot of people where expecting so much from NMS when ED was already out, and basically destroyed the game because it was a shell of the expected content.

    Now ED is what people expected from NMS and yet it gets passed over by the masses because of 'reasons', despite the ED devs actively working on content, talking with the playerbase, owning up to mistakes (the season pass/expansion fuck up really hurt them but they at least admitted they messed up)... This is EXACTLY what people want from NMS right now, yet ED gets ignored (or hated on for things they are doing).

    Why NMS but not ED? Was it just hype or the fact ED isn't bright colours and looking like Minecraft in space? It seems the space sandbox can't win fans either way.

  • Blizzard doing away with the Battle.net name

  • Kremlik 22/09/2016

    Seems to me it's more the legal department tying up a few loose ends, as if I'm not mistaken the original creator of Battle.net Mike O'Brien left the company to form Arenanet - this forced Blizzard to remake B.net into 2.0 by Greg Canessa.

    Now to seems to me either the name 'Battle.net' is about to expire costing them money or Greg Canessa is planning to move on soon which could lad Blizzard into a messy situation with who owns what when it comes to B.net

  • Paladins boss speaks out over Overwatch clone claims

  • Kremlik 21/09/2016

    @celopoff I actually forgot about GA, but sadly we live in the world where the 'popular/known' title is the 'original source' for ideas.. (in this case it's 50:50)

    It seems like Blizzard and HiRez liked ideas from both companies and just made their own spin. It's funny really as we get up in arms with these games Yet the whole Pokemon/Digimon thing is almost forgotten despite Yokai Watch doing the same thing. (yet Megami Tensei series beat them ALL to it 10 years before hand and is considered by some the 'adult clone' of Pokemon)

    Either way it's not like Blizzard's fanbase has 'reacted' to these things before. Remember when certain players treated WoW like it was the first MMO ever and dissmissed any idea that it could have taken ideas from other sources and my personal fav Warhammer: Dawn of War was a DIRECT rip of Starcraft, both in gameplay AND lore... It'll calm down in the end, all Paladins needs to do is ride out the storm, being a free title will help it (as did doesn't have to slash it's prices a month in to scramble to break even)

  • Kremlik 21/09/2016

    This first, isn't Paladins closer to a MOBA then Overwatch, which is more TF2? so the 'rip off' claim is almost moot on a game play level, so like with Battleborne people are only going 'skin deep' before writing the game off.

    Seeing as Blizzard has the original MOBA the character 'archetypes' and then LoL basically expanded massively on them so there isn't much room to not clone ideas - perfect example is all the chain pull characters are basically Stitches, no matter how you reform them. The Reinhart 'clone' I'd agree is also almost 1:1, but does Overwatch have a Tree as a tank? Or my personal favourite the 'Ratchet' (from Ratchet and Clank) clone.

    I own both and they aren't the same game gameplay wise; in fact it will probably help HiRes in the long term, as people firmilar with the OW characters can probably slip right in the characters with Paladins - bottom line is for me Paladins is a Battleborne replacement NOT an Overwatch one

  • "We got caught in a s***storm"

  • Kremlik 20/09/2016

    As a long time Vainia fan LoS did something nothing else is the series did; prove that it CAN work in 3D.

    Sure, you can throw about 'God of War clone' (despite the fact it's closer to DMC, which came out before GoW) bit although true in this era, the 3D Vania games were kinda there own GoW games for their time. All that really held them back was combat, the animation wasn't as fluid as 3D combat was still new back on the N64 and later on the PS2 with what RE coined as 'tank controls'.

    A lot of people also panned LoS for being linear, but looking back the series outside of 2, the Dawn series and of course SotN were actually stage based and quite linear. The other 3D titles did try and create open world experiences, but LoS was more true to the core series. Irony is really that with many calling clone, GoW itself is quite linear but somehow that's OK and Los it's not.


    Vainia will always be known as a 2D series with SotN the jewel in the crown, but LoS on the whole is the best of the 3D branch, and is far closer to its roots than people realised

  • Kremlik 08/09/2016

    @SweetMrGibs They say that but remember they've said a lot in the past and it's never worked out for them..

    WoD being only a year till the next one, the ORIGINAL Path of the Titans (which the class weapon basically is now), flying content in Wrath world PVP which actually made it to the box..

    I play a modded version of 'when it's done' it's the 'content is real when I'm actually playing it live'.

    Not to knock Blizzard but we don't really know how long the current content is intended for we kinda know it's late October when the last LFR wing hits and the Suramar content is meant to be for 9 weeks. Past that however we really don't know, Mythic raiders have only Kharazan and that mini-raid to do after clearing the Emerald Nightmere and no real information on world content past what we already have.

    I'm really hoping it isn't till 7.3 we actually have more World content and I'm REALLY hoping 7.1's content isn't eaten up in the first month only for another 3-4 months of little information. Personally speaking I think Blizzard should look at Square Enix's content rollout, it's one of the better ones out there and if they can stick to a similar pattern then the game wont be another burn bright burn quickly like it has done in the past

    3.3 Million 'day one' sales? Is that including the pre-purchase orders, as that information really could be handy to know.

    As a person burnt by Blizzard many many times (D3, WoD, OW season 1), I can honestly say Legion is the best thing Blizzard have done for WoW in a long time, it's basically what Reaper of Souls did for Diablo - in fact it's got a lot of Diablo's DNA coming into it (Mythic+ and the world loot drops have a Greater Rift style in mind).

    Part of being the 'Best thing' is that Blizzard have upped their game in world building, the world feels alive again not just because there is more out there to do but Blizz have finally taken notes from others (namely Guild Wars 2 and FFXIV). Not only taken us back into the old world and spinning up new content for it but the class quests/halls and even crafting make bring the game back to what the players wanted, it's a Warcraft game again, not just a loot by numbers with loose reasoning to be at a location. Even crafters have questlines and have to actually go out in the world to find their stuff not just spam train at a vendor.

    Not to spoil content but I'm also liking the fact everything may NOT be a 'hero saves the day' moment in the lore. As many already know even from the start we have had some major lineup shifts and lore happen. It doesn't stop there there is actually moments where the outcome isn't 'cheerful', having these darker moments actually helps the world feel more real and less 'Saturday morning TV'. I'm actually doubting if we are going to make it out of this expansion without really heavy losses, that's if we even win at all, which is helping me really look forward to the content updates..


    For those old players looking for reasons to play - Legion is Wrath 2.0, lets hope the content rollout is as good as Blizzard want it to be.

  • Ark fans burned by Scorched Earth, the Early Access game's "completely finished" expansion

  • Kremlik 06/09/2016

    @OnlyJoeKing It's the most frustration question to answer as the game IS good in terms of gameplay and design; mainly because it's one of the few actual survival sandboxes that isn't just using the 'survival' systems in yet another zombie rouge-like.

    HOWEVER that said it's the team and PR itself that's letting it down, the team have fallen into the 'one more feature' trap instead of focusing on just building the core game just to get it out of Early Access..

    Scorched Earth despite being intended for their release of content model just screams to me they HAD to release another cash injection as they are running low on funds.

    I had the same feeling with the 'arena content' split, it's not great to feel that the game may never truly be released as the team just cannot nail down the core game issues as the game is just now 'too big' with systems and features - if the core game 'worked' like many said most of the criticisms of the game and this content release may not have been so forefront.

  • Final Fantasy 15's Ł190 Ultimate Collector's Edition doesn't include season pass

  • Kremlik 19/08/2016

    I get why people are pissed at buying this and not getting the season pass included it is advertised as the 'ultimate ed' and yet it's STILL missing stuff...

    However I don't get the outcry of the season pass in general, it's basically fluff, yes it does come with 'stories' with the other three characters playable, but will it add 'missing story content' to the overall plot, probably not.

    Noctis is STILL the central character of the story, once his arc ends everything else is filler - we STILL get the backstory of the other characters from the anime, we STILL get the reason behind them leaving and the over-arcing events with his father from the movie - hell in a way we still will get decent plots from the other three characters most likely DURING the game itself..

    Will the season pass be another 'true ending' FFXIII-2 had (Despite the fact all that did was explain why Lightning was in Crystal)? Unlikely as Noctis isn't the focus of those stories - all they will most likely do is flush out a few arcs that weren't completely told in the main story ie like with Locke and Rachel in the extended versions of FFVI. With it being this late in development to announce it, it's hardly be a key plot point or ground breaking enough to be essential to the story.

    The season pass is there for the die hard fans of the game, and most likely only really worth buying once you've finished the game and thats IF you enjoyed it.

    1) Vol'jin was the sole noteworthy troll within WoW's current lore, Blizzard didn't set up anyone to replace him as representative of the troll faction, unlike Varian who had Anduin to replace him, who has also been set up for the longest time to do so. It feels like a big FU to troll players considering the second reason..

    2) Metzen refuses to kill off 'his baby' Thall. Thall's story is done, twice, his story sorted ended by the end of Cata, got involved in Panda which again ended in Draenor.. He's done being Warchief, he's cleaned up the mess he made from choosing Garrosh and he finished his 'vision quest' with Deathwing. IF Blizzard NEEDED to kill off a Horde character why not him? Speaking of killing off...

    3) The Horde side are 'forced' to watch Varion's death (although it is quite epic), but the Alliance only get told of Vol'jin's death in passing. In fact Vol'jin's death is almost shrugged off, even in the Horde arc as just a plot point for Sylvanas, as she gets more time on screen. Compared to Varion's death his is quite weak, gets impaled sure, but it's mostly 'Yup, I'm done' and just gives up. It really did feel Blizzard didn't really care about Vol'jin to make the HORDE LEADER'S death just as epic, why didn't they just allow Vol'jin to join Varion for the final blow?

    No no Blizzard had to force the Horde vs Alliance conflict in somewhere which even most of the NPCs turn around and say it's pointless as there is more pressing matters (guess who doesn't Miss Dreadlord.. erm Proudmoore). Also NB Tirion is a neutral faction and if it wasn't for a certain Hearthstone card we probably wouldn't have seen his fate, and TBH I HOPE that wasn't the real end of him either as that was weak too.

  • After a flood of negative feedback, Pokémon Go's developer is finally ready to talk

  • Kremlik 02/08/2016

    @TheTokiEffect
    Looks like a community can't criticise a developer anymore without being labelled "toxic".

    What a time to be alive.
    You CAN be critical of a dev - it's the WAY you go about it that is the issue.

    The silence wasn't great neither is the servers going down or the Pokemon account link being practically dead. Talking about them and saying you are wanting change and/or stopping buying and using the product is the best way of doing so.

    Mass 1 star reviews, threatening to go to certain sites and requesting DDoS of the product, hate being thrown over Facebook/Twitter (leading to death threats) - THAT is what the 'loudest' have been doing, that IS toxic.

    Lets add on to that the ACTUAL faction hate, the 'need' to use outside apps to 'progress' because people have been GPS proofing and hacking, leading to 'haves' and 'have nots'. The fact that people have done stupid things in real life JUST to get a digital 'thing'?

    Sadly it's not like Pokemon Go is a sole case in this. Whenever a game (mainly competitive ones, even if the game has it in a small way) reaches a certain point of player base size, it's bound to happen and get Toxic in some way either to the devs or other players.. It's just that Pokemon Go is THAT big right now it's imploded on itself so fast and harsh the devs couldn't react any faster without backlash either way.

    No real shock how toxic the 'community' of Pokemon Go actually is when it's a given the larger the market range of players, thanks to a growing pool of people, the more 'elite' and 'entitled' the feedback gets as certain people shout the loudest and 'react' more.

    That is gaming 'communities' these days, some people have no filter and react to anything faster then they can think and shout the loudest, others just jump on the bandwagon to be 'part of the solution and effect change', despite not knowing what they are supporting or even the effect it's having on the product as a whole.

    Add that the mobile market which is known to spam the 1 star rating as soon as a product hits the stores as the product doesn't work on THEIR phone despite having a product range as large as the PC market and phones that practically go unsupported and out of recommended specs within at least 18 months after release on average.

    Anyone expecting Pokemon Go to have a great ride of success didn't factor in: hype + mass market + known IP / days active + mass market = a bucket load of toxic

    This always makes me laugh as it sounds to me as 'God, you are making me PLAY a game? I need to get better at it to progress? GOD! WHY DON'T you let me just BUY everything (despite me going around Reddit complaining about season passes and DLC) so I can go to my friends and say HOW GREAT I am at the game and how they are not despite me not really playing it... ME LIFE NEEDS MEANING!'

    Perhaps clicker games are more their genre?

  • Another month goes by and Fallout 4 mod support on PS4 is still MIA

  • Kremlik 02/08/2016

    The problem I have with all this is blame will be pushed to Sony by Bethesda at some point, most likely due when Skyrim hits as it's most of the reason to buy the game YET AGAIN on console.

    Personally I think Bethesda should just bite the bullet and admit they should have just tested this on BOTH formats before going all 'look what we can do, aren't we cleaver' at E3 not once but TWICE, even when during Skyrim this issue was known with Fallout.

    This gen consoles didn't enter it with mods in mind, much like last gen didn't have free to play and cash shop integration in mind (DUST 514). It's going to be a LONG time for this 'fix' to happen, perhaps next gen the PS5 may opt for mods in mind.

  • Doom paid DLC dated, and Free Update 2 and double XP this weekend

  • Kremlik 28/07/2016

    @Unreal849
    Remind me again why the worst aspect of the game (by far) is getting all the expansion content?
    That's easy: It's because some suit thinks that considering all 'leading' FPS titles fall more towards a 'service' of an online multiplayer platform. You know with the season passes on top of extra micro-transactions outside of the season pass which you would think would be part of it but aren't, that kind of deal, because that is where the money is apparently..

    The devs (or should I say former team of devs) are most likely already 'done' with the multiplayer content and it's just down to fine tuning the game anyway so it's just drip feeding now..

    What the suit forgot: THIS IS FREAKING DOOM

  • Hands-on with Total War: Warhammer's newest race, the Beastmen

  • Kremlik 27/07/2016

    @OnlyJoeKing Your logic is flawed as you assume a 'sale' (though it isn't a sale) price of 48%-ish off a base game is the correct price, the ACTUAL price is Ł39.99. The DLC is about a third of the price of the base product not half.

    That said however I agree the price is higher then I expected however NOT as high as you make it out to be considering the Chaos army is under half the price given for Beastmen even with the discount.

    Ł8-10 I'd consider this at as adds a new map as well, something that Chaos doesn't

  • Nintendo NX is a portable console with detachable controllers

  • Kremlik 26/07/2016

    A hybrid has always made the most logical sense with the NX - the Japanese market is mobile/handheld heavy considering both the XBONE and PS4 didn't do as well as predicted there, hell even the Vita has done better then the XBONE and the 3DS is basically king.

    Seeing as Nintendo is Japan focused this was the solution. Considering if you think about it going back to the Vita again, it's not a bad bit of tech it just lacked support by Sony, the Third parties are keeping it alive, IF the NX had the same if not better tech it would eat up the rest off that market, and with Nintendo's 1st party I would really be interested in what this can pull off.. Edit: just looked at the tech behind it - All I can say it look at the tech in the XBONE/PS4 it's not that impressive but they've pulled a LOT out of it.

    Finally if all this is true it's pretty clear why we didn't hear from Nintendo's NX until now, it wasn't fears of copycats... It's the clear knowledge that 'new' 3DS sales would tank, sadly it's almost the DSi all over again.

  • Total War: Warhammer's next playable race, The Beastmen, revealed

  • Kremlik 14/07/2016

    Ł13.99 is a tad steep for what I was expecting, however IF the race isn't just a reskin and does feel like it's tabletop counterpart then I could be tempted. Considering the way the other races play, it's hopeful Reply +4
  • Fallout Shelter out now on PC, here's how to download it

  • Kremlik 14/07/2016

    @Mister_Vimes it's a sim even looking at the screenshot the Dev's call it a sim.

    I don't know why they called it a strategy game here, as 'sim' fits the theme of the valuts to a tea even in fallout itself

  • Paedophiles, lures and susceptible children: the UK tabloids take on Pokémon Go

  • Kremlik 12/07/2016

    @wyp100 Don't know about Ep1c, but here's my rules on adblock for any site.

    If an ad takes up the screen and disrupts content without needing to 'interact' with it - thats a block'n.

    If an ad plays a video/javascript automatically (mostly with audio) on loading, hence slowing down the page and/or pc - thats a block'n.

    If it's distracting for the page with flashing 'LOOK AT ME' images (ie 'your a winner' - thats a block'n.

    Ads that have very little in common with the site in question and/or clickbait headlines AKA TABOOLA (honestly it's the most distracting set of images in the site) - thats a block'n.

    Just keep the ads suttle, we came here to read the articles, not to be distracted by product placement, this site isn't run by Zack Snyder
    (also bonus hugs if anyone guesses what I suck in the comment)

    Edit: just to point out I block ads individually not site wise unless the site is 90% ads and completely in your face, EG normally is free from the mass block

  • Richard Garriott selling vials of his blood on eBay

  • Kremlik 10/07/2016

    Not really too shocking from him considering he redesigned his last MMO (Tabular Rasa) as a Scifi and tried to pass a trip to space as a 'business expense' by loosly tying the game to it (submitting beta screenshots so they can be in space on a ubs drive)..

    It's a shame as the game's core was actually good but Garriott wasted that much money on it the game HAD to be released half baked.

    @PrimalxConvoy He's NOT talkling about Go, he's talking about Ingress..

    The devs DID ban players in that game for those reasons, it's safe to speculate they MAY do the same when Go launches in the UK

    It's just a buyer beware thing ATM, if you aren't in a rush to play it, don't, by the time WE get it most of these issues may be fixed
