  • The Order: 1886 review

    "I am amazed by that statement."

    Yes, that can happen sometimes if you take half of a statement and present it out of context. Seriously, if you have nothing of worth to add, don't add anything, it's pretty simple.

    1) "Better" is subjective, in my opinion, yes the "out of 10" scores were more intuitive than the current system. As I clearly explained before, scores where just a very quick way of gauging the reviewers subjective overall perception of the game. A single number that would give people a general idea on whether they wanted to invest further in reading the actual review. Why read two sentences when a number does the trick?

    "you simply cannot compare all games relative to each other by boiling them down to a number. can't be done. fact."

    It can be done, has been done, is still done, of course, it's not an exact science, but then neither is the body of the review, as it's all totally subjective. Not to mention, EG still has a scoring system, it just has 3 tiers instead of 10 and the option for them to "chicken out" if they're scared of upsetting the dev and losing ad revenue from them. Using scores is not supposed to be an exact science, just a quick indicator as to the reviewers perception of the overall quality of something, it has been used on movie, book, game, car, everything, reviews since long before you were on this planet and it has served its purpose very well up until now.

    2) Some of us are adults with jobs and families, we don't have time to read a review on a game which is a 2/10

    3) See answer 1.

    4) I never complained that this game doesn't have a badge, so I'm assuming that reply was meant for someone else.

    @Coolchwip I felt the same way about The Evil Within, I was desperately disappointed with that, I played it for a good few hours but just couldn't get into it, luckily I got it for 11 on steam but it was still a disappointment even at that price... Reply 0

    @TarickStonefire You seem to have a real issue with people holding different opinions to yourself. If you like the new review system, good for you, but there's no need to have a hissyfit if others prefer the old system. It's not illegal to disagree lil guy. Reply +2
  • Kryon 20/02/2015

    @TarickStonefire Way to miss the point, Sherlock. The previous scoring system allowed me to quickly decide whether or not I *wanted* to read the review. Why would I want to read two sentences when a single number would give me the information I require in making that choice, hence it is less intuitive than before. Reply -8
  • Kryon 20/02/2015

    Gotta be honest here, this new scoring system is unhelpful in my opinion. There is no way for me to get a quick idea of how the reviewer perceives the game. Eurogamer just keeps getting worse and worse, the constant barrage of feminist crap, mods (well, one in particular) who abuse their "power", and now a review scoring system which is (IMO) far less intuitive than before. It's a shame, EG used to be a decent place 6 or 7 years ago... Reply -3
  • Dead or Alive 5 Last Round launches with plenty of issues

  • Kryon 22/02/2015

    There's an urban legend that every time someone buys this game and sets the boob physics to "OMG" a social justice warrior is struck on the anus with a thousand bolts of lightning.

    I'm not sure if it's true, but if you see MrTomFTW walking funny later on you can assume it has worked.

  • Dying Light dev reveals 3D-printable zombie bikini figurine

  • Kryon 18/01/2015

    The screenshots of Dying Light suggest that it's set in a place with palm trees. Palm trees are generally restricted to tropical, subtropical, and warm temperate climates. Guess what? People do dress like that in hot weather. There is absolutely nothing controversial about this figure whatsoever. She is proportioned realistically and dressed appropriately for her environment. This SJW nonsense is just so laughably pathetic, it's like they actually don't want portrayals of women in games at all... Reply -1
  • Watch the Clock Tower spiritual successor NightyCry's first teaser

  • Kryon 04/01/2015

    @Karbonator I get that, but IMO using live action movie for a videogame teaser is like using a bicycle to advertise a new car, they may both have wheels but one doesn't represent the other at all. I don't feel I know anything more about this game after watching the teaser, and as I'm interested in the game (not a
    horror movie with a 10p budget) I feel I've wasted my time watching it.

    Yes, I'm grumpy, sorry.

    Am I the only one who feels cheated when I come to see a teaser for a videogame but what I get is actually a really bad live action horror movie on a bag puss budget which gives me no idea what the game will play/look like? Yes I know it's a "teaser" and not a full trailer as such but at least tease me with the product you're actually intending to sell to me, jeez... Reply +4
  • Tekken 7 reveals Saudi Arabian character Shaheen

  • Kryon 03/01/2015

    In my opinion the character design is solid but generic and ultimately pretty boring, there's a slight bit of flair with his "cape" thing, but apart from that I don't feel there's anything new or exciting about this design. Reply +2
  • Final Fantasy 15 reveals first female version of mechanic Cid

  • Kryon 31/12/2014

    @VANGUARD-CAT OK, Looking at it in context do you think Vaan was dressed appropriately for a warrior? You see the thing is when you do look at FF character design in context you'll realise that they have always had characters (male and female) who're not dressed realistically for their role, and who're clearly designed to be sexually appealing to a certain demographic (in the past that demographic has usually been teenage girls).

    Regardless, the most unrealistic thing about the new Cid is not how she's dressed, it's the fact she's female at all. Women dressing revealingly is pretty common, women who go into engineering are extremely rare.

    @hepaestus That's just the art style, in the official character bio it states she is Japanese. Try Kokoro for a more stereotypical Japanese looking character I guess. Reply 0
  • Kryon 23/12/2014

    @MrTomFTW What's a step too far for me is people with an agenda (which is quite frankly based on nothing)trying to stifle artistic freedom. If the devs want to make fantasy characters with large breasts I don't see a problem, just as I didn't see a problem with Vaan (A warrior) being the video game equivalent of Peter Andre in "mysterious girl". It's fantasy, and there's no proof that it harms anybody, so who cares? Not me. Reply +2

  • Kryon 23/12/2014

    @MrTomFTW It's a fantasy game with fantasy in the title which has fantasy characters (which as I've shown have catered very much to the female sensibilities in the past). Sorry man, but I do not want "mature" character design in Final Fantasy, It's a game where you ride giant chickens for Gods sake... I'm just so glad Japanese devs don't seem to be bowing to SJW pressure, but hey, each to his own. Reply +3

    Honestly, I hope this means the site can finally return to being a space dedicated to gaming, rather than the violently anti-gamer, pro feminist nonsense we've seen recently, but yeah, I hope Tom is happy in whatever he chooses to do next, perhaps a job at Ms.Magazine or Feminista would be more suitable.

    Ah I understand why they've done this, FFX was released in 2001, so they're now re-releasing FF13 to mark the 13 years since Square Enix made a good FF game.

    I'm not a hater, just a disillusioned fan of the franchise.

    Anyone not enjoying this news can thank the trolls and haters that Phil Fish got. Effectively they are making the lives of successful indie developers hell and it's no surprise that they are quitting the industry completely or selling up.
    Eh? I don't think Notch has ever said he's selling up because of twitter trolls. Indie devs (in general) don't receive any more hate or trolling than anyone else.

    People who are disliked receive more trolling, Phil Fish is strongly disliked by a lot of people, so there you have it. There's no conspiracy that I'm aware of to specifically single out indie devs and harass them.

  • Kryon 04/09/2014

    lol ok ill give you that then, but it is something I honestly wonder about, how can SJW guys complain about some cartoon woman with possibly a bit of silly boob jiggle in a game when they probably go home of an evening and bash one out over real women being objectified in the most extreme way possible..
    Reply +1
  • Kryon 04/09/2014

    I'm pretty sure porn ruins more relationships than it fixes so that's a pretty invalid argument, but even if porn did help relationships does that mean sexually objectifying women is OK as long as it serves a purpose for you? lol.

  • Kryon 04/09/2014

    @MrTomFTW Lol, well what's sexy is totally subjective I guess, but if sexual objectification in games is bad, then surely it's bad in any medium, so no porn for SJWs? Reply +1
  • Kryon 04/09/2014

    This is kinda off topic, but it's something I've wondered about a few times when reading comments from guys who're opposed to sexualised depictions of women in games... If and when they masturbate, what do they masturbate to?

    I get this frightening but amusing mental image of SJWs berating some kid for playing DoA Beach Volleyball while they themselves are furiously banging one out to some Brazilian fart porn, I'm just wondering, is that pretty accurate?

    @superflyninja The fact is this letter *didn't* have to be put out here.

    If I'm honest, a bunch of SJW feminists declaring that "gamers" are dead just makes me prouder than ever to identify as a gamer. These people do not deserve the moniker of gamer, so I'm glad they're distancing themselves from it.

    I've never made a threat online, I'm quite happy for an ex-porn star, turned feminist victim, turned cheating scoundrel (yes I would say the same thing about a man who cheated on his girlfriend)to make crappy "games" that look like a 1998 webpage, I also don't care if radfem nutjobs want to give one sided opinions on which ever medium they choose, it's all inconsequential, the fact is studios will continue to create games with explosions, violence and boobs until people stop buying them (which isn't going to happen). So my message to you social justice warriors is this, whine on, whine like you've never whined before, whine till the cows come home, your lament is the source of my power, your tears, the nectar I yearn to bathe in, whine on, for I AM A GAMER!

  • Kryon 02/09/2014

    Guys, don't let Eurogamers overly patronizing nonsense upset you, you have to remember that games journalists are lowly paid peasants who generally aren't particularly intelligent or talented, that's why they talk about games instead of create them. They're just trying some very see through techniques here to cover their tracks, it's kinda akin to a kid loudly farting in assembly and blaming it on another kid.

    If I took anything these guys said seriously I'd probably get a bit annoyed about it, but basically sites like Eurogamer are on their last legs, everyone goes to youtube for gaming news now. This Tumblrfeminist/SJW clickbait fad infecting the gaming press is just their last *desperate* attempt to stay afloat in an age that is quickly forgetting them, so chillax, laugh and feel free to drink their tears as they die a slow and painful death. (P.S. This is not a death threat so please don't have a hissy fit or take to twitter to tell about how the mean ol' man on teh interwebs is harassing you)

    I'm aware the tone of this comment is a little insulting, but I feel you guys have been insulting us (gamers) for long enough now, so I don't feel in any way out of order returning the favour. Have a nice day :)

    Considering Eurogamers recent "feminist/SJW" stance, I find it a little odd that they see fit to give games like this any coverage/promotion at all, seems rather counter-intuitive to their current feminist pandering politics. If the depictions of cartoon women in these games are "sooooo" damaging to real people, why publicize the game at all?

    I probably won't play this game, but I'll order a few copies just to make Tom cry.

    I'm just wondering who "we" is supposed to be? If you mean game journalists then sure, I can totally understand the sentiment, I mean it must be great having female indie devs who're willing to tickle your pickle for a 8/10, but if you mean "we" as in the gaming community, then I strongly disagree.

If I were in a situation of life and death/survival I honestly wouldn't take much notice of what a kid was saying to me in this context, it just isn't possible for me to take it that seriously.

  • Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 review

  • Kryon 26/02/2014

    It's too much, too early, with too little meaningful context, and it's confused by a distinct hint of sexuality to the violence that the game's not capable of addressing in any meaningful or adult manner. (At least this meshes with the rest of the adventure, which unfailingly hands out many of its most graphic punishments to female baddies.)

    I know others have already cut you down for this nonsense but after playing through well over half the game I thought I'd add my opinion.

    1. The scene in question does not have any sexual undertones whatsoever, which is surprising because in many vampire movies & books they certainly have sexualised this type of scene at times, but not in this game, It was a scene of a hungry beast feeding, nothing more, unless you get a boner when you dish up the chappy to your pet dog I really don't understand how you saw anything 'sexual' here at all.

    2. As for women getting the most "graphic" punishments, I'd love you to elaborate on this because I haven't noticed that at all. The only thing I can say is that there seem to be quite a few female bosses in this game, and bosses always get the worst beat down. It's almost like you're trying to find sexism where there isn't any... I do find it rather amusing that you rip through thousands of male baddies, impaling, mutilating, stabbing them through the jaw, etc, but then you have to kill one or two females and you get your panties in a bunch and start crying "misogyny".

    I've also come to the conclusion that this is just another trashy click-bait article, the score is a joke, the vast majority of those who have bought the game seem to be loving it judging by the Steam reviews. Poor show, Christian Donlan.
