  • The Doom campaign is actually pretty good

  • Mazzle 13/05/2016

    So odd seeing people snort and wheeze about others not being able to make their own opinions about a game before they read reviews. Like watching some officially released marketing material (trailers, gameplay slices) made to show the game in the most positive light possible has less ability to push you towards a buy.

    Some people just enjoy hearing about how a game works, getting to see inside the giblets both glorious and disgusting is a way for someone to look at a game without the devs/publishers bias getting in the way.

    Can reviewers be bias? You bet, can they skew an opinion if the readers allow? Oooh yes but I hope and assume there are enough people in the world who are actually able to pick out the fluff and say ok this is the game for me. The only difference is that I never see those people belittling others that buy based off trailers and small segments for being stupid or unable to to make their own opinions.

  • Fable developer Lionhead closes down today

  • Mazzle 30/04/2016

    Ah man, bad day for the British dev scene. Regardless of what you thought of those final years. There were so many talented and awesome people. Black & White will always be one of my favourite games ever. I even enjoyed The Movies and felt that with the right pair of hands you could have had another big franchise going forward if the money was there. As for Fable, you had the balls to dare and dream, even if it didn't live up to everyones expectations the fact you tried showed exactly what the studio was meant to be. I for one loved it.

    Adieu ladies and gentlemen, I hope you all find work going forward and thank you for the great memories.

  • Alexis Kennedy on: Three reviews of games from the year 2035

  • Mazzle 12/12/2015

    You can live a reasonably long and productive life with no spleen, no gallbladder, no reproductive organs, one kidney, one lung, and only a left eye and ear. I have first-hand experience of this.
    Don't you mean last-hand? Only Hand? Can someone get the bloody sub-editor in please this writer is all fingers and thumb.

  • Bethesda announces $1m prize draw just for playing The Elder Scrolls Online

  • Mazzle 04/12/2015

    This promotion apparently came about after the devs overheard an ex-beta tester scream:

    "You couldn't pay me nine hundred and ninety nine thousand dollars to play this piece of shit!"

  • It looks like Beyond's PS4 version has lightened the skin tone of Saudi characters

  • Mazzle 03/12/2015

    Wow, this shit is getting really uncomfortable, some of the reactions on both sides are just manic.

    For what it's worth I think EG raise a good point when you consider the fact the Sheik character hasn't been changed at all. It may sound funny or stupid to some of you but them asking Sony to comment is just the natural way to go about getting an official company line. Should they ask the designer who will have no authority to speak and would probably be set upon by the dogs of the internet whatever answer he or she gives.

    At the same time I really don't know where all of this will eventually fit in the grand scheme of things. When the big book of gaming history is written and future people turn to the 2010 - 2020 section what will they see? Not saying it isn't worthy of an article as it's definitely game related and if the scenario was reversed and a lot of white character models were suddenly more tanned there would be a lot of people scratching their heads thinking "what?". I completely doubt the claim by some this is racist and we still wouldn't have an answer to that even if/when Sony do decide to comment.

    We're at a point where these articles are creating lines in the sand in reader-base and the attacks against each other have some really shitty undertones, we've had so much to argue about over the years (my PC is better than your consoles) but this?

  • Crusader Kings dev goes boldly into space with Stellaris

    Wow they licensed the Tron Legacy theme and remixed it for the trailer, one of the better modern day film soundtracks, it turns up everywhere.

    Excited to play another Paradox style grand strategy.

  • Metal Gear Solid: The Phantom Pain shows Snake turning into a devil

  • Mazzle 05/08/2015

    A Kojima trailer that's under five minutes? Pfft he's phoning it in. I kid, less than a month away from all the mayhem and fun, I can't wait. Kojima Productions are going out with a bang.

    What goes around comes around, you'd do well to remember that Konami.

    P.S. When the dust has settled and he's formed a new studio if Kojima would like to make a spiritual successor to Zone of Enders I would be quite a happy chap.

  • Sega adds Shia LeBeouf meme to Sonic marketing

  • Mazzle 15/07/2015

    Sega aren't just clutching at straws, they've bought some land, built a factory and have started manufacturing the god damn straws themselves. Actually maybe they should just go into the straw making business and let Sonic rest for a little while.

    I kinda imagine him to be a bit like Slurms MacKenzie from Futurama. He's tired, has multiple brain injuries from "Sonicing" into things and can't even remember his kids names anymore. But he's been damned to hell. It's the Olympics next year and he's gotta earn his paycheck with Mario.

  • Jordan Henderson is on the cover of FIFA 16

  • Mazzle 10/07/2015

    Holy hell this comment thread is hilarious. Plenty of armchair football dads in the making. You could bottle this anger and sell it to a buddhist monk who would then proceed to kick you in the balls and call you a cuntbag.

    Back on topic, it's a video game cover and the only winners are Henderson (for the royalties he's going to make) and EA for the amount of discussion this will have created. There'll be plenty of fan covers made that you can print off and use.

    So let's all calm down and discuss the real issue. Why the fuck is Pele not on the cover every year...
