  • Return to Skyrim

  • Madder-Max 18/04/2014

    Oblivion is a superior game to skyrim. It has more narrative depth, detail and is more of a challenge. Playing a vampire is far more challenging and rewarding for example.

    Skyrim is a great game but with little depth or consequence to your actions.

    Fucking hell guys. The sun is out! Go outside, get some fresh air, have a picnic, fall in love just do something other than dribble your drivel in the comments section.

    If aliens suddenly invaded earth and gave you 10 minutes to live, would any of this seem important?

    @Widge

    A.What are the major responsibilities of forum moderators?
    1. Theme control
    The moderator must create an open discussion atmosphere in the forum he/she moderates, trying best to write posts, transfer relevant articles and reply to users' questions. It is the moderator's responsibility to establish and keep the forum style and theme according to the board layout.
    2. Maintain order
    The moderator must mediate irrational quarrels occurred in the forum he/she moderates to maintain normal order. The moderator should take a neutral stand and pose a fair attitude in settling disputes, particularly when involved in controversial topics.
    3. Keep forum clean
    Monitor your assigned forum for abusive posts, unauthorized spam or advertisements, copyright infringements, any sort of harassment, and any other violations of the forum rules and edit or delete posts that violate these rules.
    4. Reward users
    Properly utilize the moderator's rights to reward users for their excellent posts through making them sticky, classic or giving users scores. Do not abuse your power for personal gain.
    5. Organize activities
    Organize forum activities frequently and closely coordinate with the official forum staff in organizing forum activities. Moderators should submit an activity plan to forum admin! If the plan was accepted, the admin and moderator will work together to hold the activity and moderators will get certain MMOgold as reward, which depends on the activity result.
    6. Increase forum popularity
    Foster a sense of community, caring and responsiveness in your assigned forum. This can be done easily by getting involved in discussions, responding to posts (especially those no one else responds to), and offering your support. NOTE: You do not have to reply to every post.

    That's just a general guide I found on google. I don't see anything about judging people as idiots, but there is a a very clear point about neutrality.

  • How Alien: Isolation recreates the horror of the 1979 original

  • Madder-Max 11/01/2014

    @jamieleng No, I mean it looks like Deadspace. Someone inm isolation in the dark with a torch against a scripted hiding enemy with microtsansactions etc..

    The Alien series were about people (more than one) with weapons fighting more than one alien.

    Its like someone singing a classic song and adding extra notes and singing out of rhythm and syncapation and then calling it 'expression' or 'artistic interpretation'. It just fucks up the original song.

  • Titanfall maximum player count is 6v6

  • Madder-Max 08/01/2014

    @KALofKRYPTON

    On XBOX360?

    Epic online battles that require strategy and tactics and most importantly allow time for progression to have an impact have gradually been replaces by 10 minute frenetic battles in which everything is unlocked in the last minute.

    How long are the battles in Titanfall? I suspect the shorter battles in games and the retraction of setting options for matches has something to do with microtransactions.

  • Madder-Max 08/01/2014

    I really struggle to understand why in 2009 we had epic 64 player battles that would last for up to an hour in Frontlines FOW, (on maps that were designed for that number) and ever since no other game has ever come close.

    Its very sad.

  • Games of 2013: Grand Theft Auto 5

  • Madder-Max 26/12/2013

    What about GTA Online? The sp is great and highly entertaining but I don't think its the best gta.

    The online game is completely wrecked atm by all the hacks but Rockstar went about the microtransactions and game tweeking all wrong.

    Most online don't attract as many hackers so soon, but game that set expectations too high and showed blatant disregard for its players over time? That might do it.

  • Fixing Forza 5: How Turn 10 wants to win fans back

  • Madder-Max 15/12/2013

    @frazzl so they have tweeked a game then to cater for a minority audience? This argument still does not add up and is still a big steaming pile of poo.

    Companies exist to make money. That's it. There is no way they would risk changing a game to allow for microtransactions if they did not think a large proportion of players would spend money on them. This also shopws the limited time argument for what it is.

  • Madder-Max 14/12/2013

    We have acceleration, and that was based on feedback from players in Forza 4 - there's a small group of players that can't be bothered to do things and they have disposable income. They're the sim guys in a lot of cases. They don't want to do the career, and they don't value those aspects, and that's alright by me."

    Since when do coporations design games for a minority audience??

    This whole argument of limited time is a huge steaming pile of poo. We all know why the companies are doing this and its insulting that they would think us stupid enough to buy that argument.

    If you don't have enough time, why are you throwing extra money at games that you are not fully playing? It does not add up and it baffles me why Sony and MS are trying so hard to kill off console gaming.

  • Crackdown retrospective

  • Madder-Max 25/11/2013

    @RodHull

    I truly hope there is NOT a remake or sequel inm development! Crackdown 2 ignored the promise at the end of the first in favour of zombies and just wasn't as good or free.

    All microsoft will do is influence the design so it becomes a chore to play whilst poking you to pay for microtransactions.(Like Rockstar did with GTAV)

    No thank you.

  • Rockstar explains GTA Online cash stimulus delay

    Crikey I really hope rockstar peeps don't read this comments section. The amount of self entitled whinging arseholes here is quite worrying.

    If I was rockstar I would be close to saying fuck you and turning off the online servers.

    Most of us enjoyed gtav single player.

    The online was obviously a beta to anyone with half a brain. It is free and it is also enjoyable. The issues need to be sorted and I hjave faith that they will. Let's not forget that this is also a stress test for microsofts cloud hardware. Major xbox 1 game release dates were put back following the launch of gtav.

  • Is the most disturbing scene in GTA 5 justified?

  • Madder-Max 21/09/2013

    Writing an article on a major gaming site about isn't going to attract attention away from the rest of the game is it!! Writing an article about it isn't chasing headlines or clicks?

    /facepalm

    A huge part of rockstars success is in the media coverage each game has received; including the planted articles....

    Guantanamo still is not shut down despite obama saying he would close it. America just shrugs and gets on with torture as a legitimate interrogation technique.

    Trevor represents the type of person that would carry this out as he is emotionally detached and on speed most of the time.

  • Lost Planet 3 review

  • Madder-Max 27/08/2013

    @RunningWithScissors

    In its time lost planet mp was brilliant. I lost hundreds of hours to it and levelled up to "evel 80 odd.

    The thing is that it was region free so u would be playing people all over the world and the best games by far were when the japs came online. Mental, tough matches and they preferred machine guns. Great stuff. A learning curve as steep as a brick wall but once u broke through the sense of achievement was great.

    The lobby still stands as the best example of functional, clear and easily accesible multiplayer game.

    Now this, ladies and gents is a classic example of the problem that exists at the end of the gamer spectrum.

    "'m not saying he's going to be hired by Beth and everything will be sunshine and lollipops. What I am saying is that year out will have garnered him lots of relevant experience in things like Project Management, Design, QA and other fields..... "

    Really??!! Cost control? Human resource management? QA to whose standard? Driving the team towards deadlines? Market research? Forecasting? Time management? (And so on). This kid has blagged his dad(who probably knows little about gaming) to pay for him to have a year off to get on with his hobby. People also over exaggerate how much effirt they put into things. He did not put 2000 hours in himself. No way.

  • War never changes

  • Madder-Max 12/06/2013

    I think the article was spot on. The evolutionary jump from PS2 to PS3/360 was the multiplayer plattform. There does not seem to be an evolution to the next gen. It is definatley more of the same. U could say that games progress during the consoles lifetime but don't forget that MP was available day one on PS3 and 360.

    To see prompted qte's in Ryse was very dissapointung to see. Skyrim did qte's without prompts.

    I also think that as always in techy land, loads of people are spaffing over the cloud but the actual benefits will be far less than people think.

    There is still no identifiable benefit to owning a Kinect device. Features yes, but no benefit for the consumer that can't be done without the controller (unless of course the functionality has been changed to accomodate Kinect) and for that reason I'm out.

    There is too much that has not been demonstrated or revealed which makes me very distrustful of microsoft.

    The guy chooses to leave the team etc to have a 'creative break' and then doesn't. Hw goes and joins another studio.....so he is sending a clear message to ubisoft that he did not want to work there. THEN through no decision of his own he ends up back with ubisoft. No wonder they fucked him off. I would have questioned his commiment and motivation in that scenario too. Reply -1
