  • Troll deletes 11-year-old's Destiny characters

  • MisterCraig 23/02/2015

    I think this is something separate from kids playing games under the ESRB label.

    We're looking at social media features that didn't exist when most of us were this kids age. Personally I don't know how I would react in this young lads position to an offer like Kermit's, because I was never in that position.

    Ratings for games are always playing it safe, and every person is different. I played Perfect Dark way under the age of 18: my Gran bought me the game after watching me play it in store for 15 minutes and making her mind up. I sent my PS1 to a random guy's house to 'chip' it, allowing me to play copied games; the console came back in one piece with a pile of amazing games.

    But none of that is relevant to how the internet affects children in gaming, and that is where the heart of the issue lies. As a parent I'd be far more concerned with my kid broadcasting online without my supervision. Frankly, getting your characters deleted by a troll is tame compared to some of the horrible acts that take place online, and we're in this generational shift where uninformed parents are unknowingly putting their kids in vulnerable situations.

    If mainstream retailers like Game spent a little more time informing parents of the inherent risks to modern gaming consoles, rather then trying to coax more money from wallets, we'd minimise incidents like this in the future.

  • Apotheon review

  • MisterCraig 05/02/2015

    I genuinely think I need to be re educated on the ratings scale applied by Eurogamer.

    If it played just a little tighter, Apotheon would be brushing up against greatness.
    This review reads perfectly and gives a great impression as to what a consumer can expect. But the 8/10 score, coupled with that quote, skews my understanding somewhat.

  • The sickening side of the Steam summer sale

  • MisterCraig 28/06/2014

    At what point can we officially call this out as being more about the joy of picking up cheap games than the games themselves? I'm not sure, but I suspect Valve zoomed past it in a rocket ship quite some time ago, and if we can still see it, it's only because it's doing a victory lap.

    You totally first pumped after finishing that paragraph, didn't you?

  • Ultra Street Fighter 4 just got a lot more interesting

  • MisterCraig 03/03/2014

    @SpaceMidget75 I actually think they did release the update via download. The way I see it (and I am absolutely not targeting you) people get pretty upset over Street Fighter version X Y Z and feel they are being mugged, yet they splash out on CoD and Fifa every year, which are effectively the same game tinkered with.

    SF releases have come once every two years. If you only bought Vanilla in 2009, then buying a new version in 2014 isn't that big a bite on the wallet.

    It all boils down to how much you want out of the game. If you don't care how up to date the copy is, you could get Super Street Fighter 4 for about 5 and get all the lobby features you wanted.

  • The Secret Developers: Wii U - the inside story

  • MisterCraig 11/01/2014

    What a sad story.

    Having picked up a WiiU over Christmas I can certainly vouch for the potential of the console. Playing ZombiU and the first party games has been a truly amazing experience. Multiplayer Mario is a thing of beauty too!

    I hope Nintendo do themselves a favour and give developers a chance; the room for creativity with this console is vast but you feel it might be wasted if Nintendo don't wise up.

  • Street Fighter 4 is so good maybe we don't need a sequel just yet

  • MisterCraig 28/10/2013

    Street Fighter to me took on a level of gaming beyond your regular Friday blockbuster. It runs far deeper than any FPS or RPG regardless of how well constructed they are. This also saved me a fortune once I realised every 'AAA' title I bought after SF4 was shelved within a fortnight when the itch to fight returned.

    This fighter is a pleasure to look at and the gameplay - after putting in the time to better yourself - is so compelling that you can't resist the urge to dig some more. Whether it's learning a combo or beating someone who always seems one step ahead; there are countless stories told within 90 seconds of every round.

    Scotland has a great scene supporting this game and if anyone wants to learn more they can visit VS Scotland on facebook or contact me personally on Eurogamer.

    Those screens look fantastic but I wonder: how does it animate? The Walking Dead was home to some fascinating stills until it started to move and all of a sudden we had buggy interactions and awkwardly delayed camera cuts.

    I'd like to think that with a bigger budget after its recent successes (I had my whole family playing TWD game and they loved it) they were able to fill the production gaps that stopped TWD from being seamless.

    Still, I'm excited to play this and didn't even know it was on the horizon.

  • Amid growing anger at micro-transactions, CliffyB calls on gamers to vote with their wallets

  • MisterCraig 04/03/2013

    Bleszinski said game companies "exist to produce, market, and ship great games ultimately for one purpose. First, for money, then, for acclaim"
    This is single most depressing thing I have ever read on this site.

    Granted he may be talking specifically about the Activisions and the EAs of our generation. But I would challenge that statement over and over again.

    You look at the likes of Thirty Flights of Loving, Braid, Dear Esther, Journey and other productions in this media and you don't even have to read developer commentaries and blogs to know that these are developers who care deeply about their work and have something important they want to say to the world using gaming as a portal.

    It's not fuelled by greed (and that's exactly what we're looking at here, Cliff). It's fuelled by passion, which unfortunately in this world can only be sustained by money. But there is balance; Anyone who works on CoDCloneX and attempts to legitimise that purchasing in game currency to buy a better gun than some another person with less money/more common sense is a deep, rewarding and inspirational gameplay mechanic is off their nut. And Cliff knows it. Why would he advocate the desensitisation of our medium and throw more fuel on the fire?

    All of a sudden I'm realising I don't give a fuck about this guy or his average games, and that he is a troll.

  • New Borderlands 2 patch protects against Xbox 360 save-corrupting "virus"

  • MisterCraig 08/11/2012

    As well as the badass rank bug, there is a game breaking freeze bug that makes getting past the title screen impossible. Mentioned this many times to Eurogamer but got nothing back.

    Have to say the publication of these issues has been so hush hush it makes you wonder if there are prohibitions when it comes to reporting problems as serious as this.

    Been checking the 360 forum page on a daily basis but the feedback has been so poor. Feel kinda left out from Gearbox and I was a huge fan of their work.

    Was a huge fan.

    @jambii267 Pretty sure they had to get the reviews of the DLC out before reporting this. Afterall they can hardly take money from Gearbox/2K to have advertising everywhere on the site, and then tell everyone the game is broken before anyone buys it.

    I've been sending them mail for a month tipping them on it and got nothing back. In fact I now can't send any news reports at all, it says I'm blocked. Cheers EG!

    There are quite a few bugs for this game that are known. This one here is a killer, and there are title screen freezes that have stopped people playing from day one. I am one of those people. 5+ weeks I've owned this game and haven't been able to play a second! Poor show.

    @SClaw Kind of harsh SClaw.

    I'm not 'flooding' the comments section. I have simply posted once per boderlands 2 article in an attempt to get this knowledge public.

    Does it not trouble you hear that Randy pitchford is deleting messages on his twitter asking about when the problems will be fixed? Just simply asking when; don't you think he's entitled to know that?

    The negligence is widespread and it's up to us to have a voice and get ourselves heard. If you haven't been affected by the issues and can stomach reading one post per article giving mention to this problem then I would ask not to give me the finger on this one. Put yourself in my position: I pay 40 for a game that doesn't work and we don't get any word as to when we can play it for 3 weeks. And I deserve the finger?

    Here is a link to an increasingly popular gearbox forum, where users are describing crippling game crashes specifically related to Borderlands 2.

    Gearbox are staying mute on this and haven't offered a how or when this occurred and will be fixed. Frankly I'm tired of reporting this to different sites and chatting on the forum about it. Basically a relatively large minority of people haven't been able to play this game since day 1 and it's been 3 weeks with no support from Gearbox. Yet Randy and his colleagues are dishing out twitter and facebook advertisements on a daily basis.

    And they're losing loyal Gearbox and 2K fans every day.

    Why aren't you reporting this?


    This is one of the most talked about aspects of a game you guys advertised for months before release, and still continue to advertise.

    So why don't you do the common gamer proud and report some actual helpful news? It's been weeks and no one wants to acknowledge or talk about this.

    Please have a read and think about contacting gearbox. It would be a massive help.

  • Borderlands 2 Mechromancer class releases today

    This patch has not remedied the freeze and crash glitches that are preventing a lot of people from playing Borderlands2.

    This is extremely disappointing from Gearbox, 2K, and even Eurogamer for investigating the problem (which I have tipped towards several times).

    There has been virtually no correspondence from Gearbox over this issue. When I contacted Microsoft I was told they've been receiving dozens of calls from unhappy Borderlands2 customers.

    Anyone coming across this problem can visit the forum here, although most people are just returning their games now after being ignored for nearly 3 weeks!

    Borderlands 2 is a bugged game. Hundreds are suffering on PS3 and XBOX360. Gearbox have released two small sentences regarding this matter without giving any clarification as to what is wrong and when it will be fixed. Not so much as an apology; nothing close to an honest acknowledgement.


    I've contacted Eurogamer two or three times regarding this news and heard nothing back. Too busy reporting Kotaku-esque news? Ach I don't know. I'm just bitter because it's been three weeks and paying customers haven't been able to play this game while no one in the gaming world seems to care a fuck.

    But hey how about Kevin Butler being sued by Sony for advertising the Wii? I know right? You heard it here first people.

    Edit: Wait wait wait. Before the negs continue (keep em comin), don't forget to check out the latest Daily Mail inspired news (picture above toilet in CoD offends Muslim minority). Why are you still reading this? Get over there!

  • Cliffy B: Japan game devs must not ignore multiplayer

  • MisterCraig 14/05/2012

    Pretty sure a lot of people disagree with this sentiment. I mean, Vanquish is incredible. I've finished it so many times going for score attack and understanding the game. That experience would have, in some form, been comprimised with a multiplayer mode.

    Also consider Mass Effect 3: who here actually stuck with the multiplayer in that game? Perhaps if they didn't strive to tick that 'all important' box, then they could have had a more satisfying ending, which felt like something of a struggle and wasn't cohesive to the rest of the campaign.

    Cliffy B is right about one thing though: Vanquish multiplayer would have blown the tits off of Gears anyday!
