  • David Bowie-featuring adventure Omikron: The Nomad Soul is free this week

  • Makkuro 16/01/2016

    Well, I took them up on it, hope the game is worth the massive chore that was using their website.

    Incidentally, does anyone know how to cancel an account on the SE store?

  • Zelda: Twilight Princess HD has a new dungeon

    - Relatively free of foulmouthed morons because it doesn't have voice chat, doesn't have party chat, doesn't have the ability to really find friends unless you already know who you're looking for. It's a shell of what PSN and XBL offer.
    I consider that a point in Nintendo's favor. Being able to hear some nasal teenage boy express his opinions on homosexuality is not conductive to an enjoyable session. Admittedly I've muted voice chat when able ever since hearing some kid start singing "my god this house is freaking sweet" in a game of Halo 2 back on the original Xbox. Conditions may have improved since then.

    I see now the error of my ways. I tried to bring facts and reason to a personality contest. Ah well.:rolleyes:
    Well, try being a bit more smug, I'm sure people will see that your opinions are actually just objective facts.

    @Saul_Iscariot That's part of it, yes. I don't like unnecessary clutter. The rest of it is plain old frugality. And no, I don't have a PS4 or Xbone either, as I do almost all my gaming on PC these days, although I'll probably pick up the former sooner or later for Bloodborne alone.

    God is fine with me. He may be omnipresent, but unlike Amiibo he's immaterial, so he doesn't infringe upon my theology and geometry.

    So it's ok to rip off kids, but not adults?
    I think it's more that few commenters on Eurogamer actually care about Skylanders or Lego Dimensions, whereas many care quite a lot about Zelda. Anyway, it's the parents that are getting fleeced, not the kids. They're just just the fulcrum between the publisher and daddy's wallet.

    A lot of complaints here.
    What would people like Amiibo's to be used for in games? (serious question).
    Speaking for myself, nothing at all. They are ugly, embarrassing lumps of plastic that are worse than worthless to me. They're one of the main reasons I have so far decided against getting a Wii U. Games themselves already take up too much room in my apartment, the last thing I need is for DLC to add to the burden.

  • So, Mr Kojima, do we feel "ashamed" over Quiet?

  • Makkuro 08/09/2015

    Anyways, I promised myself I would never get involved with you and your trolling again. I moved on to other gaming websites these days and maybe read Eurogamer once or twice a week. After the behaviour of the former editor and his little twitter clique including yourself, I couldn't bring myself to keep supporting Eurogamer via clicks.
    Yeah, well, making promises is easy. The hard part is keeping them. Good luck!

    @TheDarkSide I can't tell you why you react as you do. Only you can, but it requires self-reflection, so I guess we're up the creek on that one. Reply +2
  • Makkuro 05/09/2015

    Trust me on this kiddo. When it comes to self reflection, I wrote the book. Like you said, you don't know me.
    Still haven't got the balls to outright call me a racist, eh?
    Right, and so now you're done and can spend the rest of your life in self-righteous complacency. Good job! :lol:

    I don't know whether you hold any racist views, consciously or subconsciously. You do seem to be rather touchy about the subject, though. You should probably reflect on why that is.

  • Makkuro 05/09/2015

    So are you saying there's something to it, therefore accusing me of racism?
    I'm saying that's how I'd react. You may have a much thinner skin, I don't know you. However...

    I don't need to convince myself of anything, and I've done all the self-reflection I'll ever need.
    No, you haven't, and the fact that you think you have certainly doesn't point in your favour.

  • Makkuro 05/09/2015

    I commented on an insinuation made towards me. There seems to be an attitude that it's perfectly acceptable to accuse someone of being something they're not. How else are you supposed to defend yourself against that? If I accused you of racism, how would you feel?
    If I was accused of racism baselessly, I'd feel nothing. If I was accused of racism, and I thought there might be something to it, I'd probably feel wounded, get defensive and make some lame self-justification. Hopefully, I'd have the strength to look at myself critically, admit my faults and try to better myself.

    But I sure as hell wouldn't bring up my friends' skin colour (or my cousin's sexuality), because that's just lame.

    @TheDarkSide I'm not. I'm just baffled that you think it's relevant (or appropriate) to bring up your mate's skin colour in an online argument. Reply +3

    Incidentally, one of my favourite people on this site is @frazzl. See if you can guess the colour of his skin.
    Are you really using the "some of my best friends are black" argument? That's like one step up from "I'm not racist but".

    Probably because it's not relevant or comparable to what's being discussed here.

    Anyway, I'm glad this opinion piece has generated so much interest, even though some of it is a little on the daft side. It shows that there is an audience for this kind of content, so I expect we'll be seeing more of it in the future. :)

    To be perfectly honest I thought it was a shit comment to make. But I thought fuck it, there are worse things to say. I'm sometimes thought of as an outcast for my weird behavior. But they haven't shaken my hand and spoken to me as a gentleman. If they did, I think they would be pleasantly surprised.
    Frankly, given your earlier comment, I'd be loath to shake your hand without disposable gloves on.

  • Can last-gen consoles handle Metal Gear Solid 5?

  • Makkuro 30/08/2015

    Kojima has done incredibly well with the limitations imposed and has created what looks to be a unique experience but I can't help wonder what he'd have made unshackled from the last gen systems.
    Judging by MGS1 vs MGS2, and MGS3 vs MGS4, Kojima is at his best when he doesn't get to play with the full power of new hardware. I think he'd benefit a lot from a stricter editor, but in the absence of that, hardware limitations seem to help.

    That is why our country is in the shape it is now, because we fear making light of anything that might be thought of as controversial.
    Yes, thanks for that insightful analysis of the causes of America's social, economic and political problems. Judging solely by this statement, because I won't subject myself to the video, I'm entirely certain that everyone involved with this channel is an unmitigated wanker. While I don't care how a streamer chooses to degrade himself to entertain his mouth-breathing audience (as long as it doesn't inconvenience real people), I'm not above feeling a pang of schadenfreude over this one's misfortune.

  • 18 minutes of No Man's Sky footage shows off what you actually do

  • Makkuro 07/07/2015

    I really hate that land-to-space transition. Seems like you can only ascend a few dozen meters before the screen fogs over and dumps you into outer space.

    Same thing when you land for that matter. It's clear skies until you get too close, then the view fades out, the low-detail planet is switched for the actual play area, and it fades in, again a few dozen meters above ground.

    I hope I'm wrong, and you'll be able to fly over tall mountains and deep valleys. As it is, though, the game seems disappointingly small scale beneath all the supposed vastness.

  • Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin's PC upgrade priced

    @GooseUK I think you need to work on your reading comprehension. I wasn't planning to buy the game, and it's not exactly causing me to lose sleep. I am, however, expressing my opinions on the pricing of a product. Commenting, if you will. And in an article discussing that very subject, can you imagine! Reply 0
  • Makkuro 03/04/2015

    Well, as I wrote earlier, if you think remixing enemy placements, changing item locations, modifying AI, adding new enemies and expanding the multiplayer capabilities across a 100+ hr game is a trivial -and valueless- change, you have zero respect and understanding of game design and development.
    I'll admit I have very little respect for the development that went into this version, and not too much for the design of Dark Souls 2 to begin with.

    i.e. an over-entitled clown who I have zero compunction about expressing my disdain to, and in no uncertain terms.
    My heart breaks.

    What's more 12 is a pittance for what amounts to a very substantial amount of new gameplay. That you blanch at the prospect of paying the cost of a take-away for dozens of hours of new content, just shows me how little you value the playing experience.
    I'd gladly pay it for new content (if it looks interesting). Not so much for a slight variation on old content. If I ever decide to play Dark Souls 2 again, and the remix is dirt cheap, I might choose that version instead of the original.

    Tell me why I or anyone else should give a damn about you being "denied" additional content you deem overpriced at 12?
    Nah, instead I'll tell you to look up how quotation marks work.

  • Makkuro 02/04/2015

    If its not worth it to you, don't buy it. Just don't act all butthurt because you're "missing out".
    I wasn't. I don't think I'm "missing out", because there's hardly anything to miss out on. If there was actual new content, or a significant graphical update, that would be different. As it is, they're basically charging 12 for remixed enemy and item placements. No thanks. The rest is the kind of stuff that most publishers would have included in a free patch.

  • Makkuro 02/04/2015

    And once again I have to point out the very obvious changes in item/enemy placement and the new 6 multi-player capacity.

    Hardly minor changes, and certainly enough to make inter-operation with the original builds an impossibility.
    You forgot to mention the improved AI, but that still adds up to a very minor update. Certainly not worth a two-figure sum. I'll wait until it's at least 75% off.

    Definitely not 4, that game is the nadir of the series. People still have nightmares about sailing because of it.

    sony are fairly corrupt, sony and fifa go hand in hand
    Sony is only corrupt in the same way that any large corporation is inevitably corrupt, but FIFA is on a whole different level. Sony's business model is manufacturing and selling nicely designed gadgets. FIFA's business model is siphoning public funds into the pockets of themselves and their politician accomplices using a large sporting event as cover.

    The game runs at 30fps because the logic of the older levels (from LBP 1 & 2) demand it.
    It seems pretty daft to cripple the whole game for the sake of backwards compatibility. Including a special mode for old levels would have made more sense. Perhaps it's just an excuse.

  • How Assassin's Creed Unity's micro-transactions work

  • Makkuro 14/11/2014
    There is absolutely no harm in offering choice when it doesn't affect your game if you buy nothing.
    It does, though. They include the option to pay because they want to profit from it. How do they persuade people to pay? By lading the game with grinding, which is boring by design. That way, players with little wits will pony up to skip to the good parts. Only the good part are just more grinding, now with a shinier hat.

    This is how it is in general, especially in free-to-play games. I can't speak out of experience for this particular game, however, because I never have and likely never will play it.

    You could pay 79p each to show all collectibles and activities on the game's map, 2.39 to skip finding all treasure maps, and 1.59 for a set lump of in-game consumable resources.

    But these were billed as "shortcuts" to skip completing certain activities in the game
    Somehow, I think there may be a cheaper way to skip completing activities in Ubisoft's games. I'm gonna give it a try.
