  • Xbox boss Phil Spencer makes case for Tomb Raider exclusivity deal

    @Panchos they don't have to explain anything but not explaining just upsets people more. Personally I think the while thing is a bad move on their part don't see it shifting many extra consoles. They'd have been better off getting some exclusive extras. Reply +1
  • Living with the Alien: What it's like to spend a day with Alien: Isolation

    This sounds like a modern day Enemy Zero which in itself was blatantly inspired by the first Alien film just with the alien being invisible. And that is no bad thing EO used the scare the crap out of me. Reply 0
  • Microsoft confirms Rise of the Tomb Raider Xbox exclusivity deal "has a duration"

  • Moz 13/08/2014

    @elfergos he also says that it's a similar deal to ryse and DR3 which would imply there is scope for the game to be put on other platforms eventually. Though as both of those are coming to PC but not PS4 we have no way of knowing if that is because of the deal or that neither company wants to release on playstation Reply 0

    Huzzah! Even though I have a xb1 and played the first on 360 I'll still be waiting until this is on other platforms before I buy it on which every platform it's best on. On the simple principles that making sequels into exclusives just isn't good practice. Reply +3
  • Unsubscribe?

  • Moz 02/08/2014

    @MattEvansC3 because that wouldn't be a total ball ache! Companies almost always make it a pain to cancel subscriptions, not a processes your going to want to do on a regular basis. A one stop shop is preferable. The same goes for the current fragmentation on PC with EA and blizzard insisting on having their own distribution platforms. Yes cutting out the middle man can save money but it adds to users personal administration. What's worse is the publishers seem to keeping the money savings to themselves. Reply +2
  • Moz 02/08/2014

    @Ajent as said in the article the big issue is fragmentation surely no one wants to he paying for 10 separate subscriptions in order to play all the games the want. It would be alot better if EA had done a deal with Sony and MS for inclusion on GwG or Ps+

    I understand that everyone wants a slice of the pie but there's a limit to the number of subscriptions people will be willing to deal with. The publishers need to work together when it comes to distribution and compete on the actual content

  • Destiny's six-player raids can only be played with friends

  • Moz 31/07/2014

    My interest in this game is getting less and less each time a read an article! And i'm locked into getting PS4 copy already thanx to the way they did the beta codes!! (which insadently is the final nail in the pre-order coffin)

    EA or Activision need to start putting pressure on MS and Sony to allow cross platform multiplayer.

  • Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker delayed until Jan 2015 in Europe

  • Moz 30/07/2014

    @Malek86 They seem to have underestimate the mobile market somewhat the rate of hardware progress has just left them standing with a very dated looking system. While of course 3DS games in terms of gameplay are still way better then your average smartphone/tablet game the gap in visuals is just too big now.

    I hope with their next handheld that Nintendo move to a more iPad like scale-able model and also have the "XL" sized screen from day one. Then release a new improved model every 2 years (every year probably not nessesary especially given what this year mobile tech is capable off)

    @AkumaG No you can buy games any time but they sell the most in the first or 2. With a Jan release they can focus their advertising on Smash in the lead up to Christmas then advertise Toad over the Christmas. While it might not make a huge difference the thinking could be that it'll maximize the number of people who buy both games. You'd be surprised by the number of people that if they don't buy the game in release month during the hype and advertising they'll then just forget about it.(Plus a lot of stores have the bad habit of only stocking the latest games though admittedly they are more like to keep a wide selection around at Christmas).
    Of course if it still releases in JP and the US in December then it's more like just a delay in localisation.

    The move to January is almost a relief personally there are a lot of good games out during Sept - Dec. It also makes it a great "Christmas Money" game especially with the expectation that a lot of people will be getting Smash Bros WiiU bundle for Christmas. Reply +11

  • Devolver Digital and indie devs help finance failing GaymerX convention

  • Moz 30/07/2014

    In all honesty I'm not sure what they plan to achieve from these events. I've never found my sexuality to have any impact on my enjoyment of EGX or KaPow or Games Days.
    There is still room for improvement within the Gaming community and industry but wouldn't that be better tackled by having booths and holding seminars at the existing conventions? That way your getting the message to the people you need to get the message to and spending less money on doing so.

  • The Last of Us director reveals secret deleted epilogue scene

  • Moz 29/07/2014

    @TheDoctor11 Best guess is it's no long cannon. As it's described as a fair well to the characters that sounds like they didn't have plans for a sequel to begin with. Leaving the scene out of the game left it open for a sequel and they wanted to maintain that with the public version of the live performance but also wanted to give attendees something special just for them and /SynicHatOn it creates a lot of internet chatter this way /SynicHatOff Reply +2

  • The Last of Us getting more DLC, but none of it single-player

  • Moz 21/07/2014

    WHY!!!!!?

    would the industry get over it's obsession with multiplayer already. With both the last of us and Tomb Raider I'd have much prefered more single player content then them spending money on multiplayer that most people don't have time for because there are plenty other games that target multiplayer as their key feature.

    There is still space for games that have both SP and MP but there's no way that every game needs it.

  • What's in the Destiny beta?

  • Moz 18/07/2014

    @Devox would agree that xbl tends to he more stable but this is partly achieved by aggressively throttling download speeds. So while PSN falls over more on launch days at all other times I find I can download stuff alot quicker from Psn then xbl so it's all prose and cons. All parties need to look at their online infrastructure further but things are improving at least issues are down to being for the first few hours instead of the first few days (look at the GW2 launch compared to Wildstar)

    On Destiny Beta specifically the main issue is clear they shouldn't have waited til launch day to issue codes. Codes and downloads should have been available at least 24 hours before servers went live.

  • Blizzard challenges itself to create more diverse heroes and content

  • Moz 11/07/2014

    @Eisenstein interesting you should mention Rowling as she had even considered the sexuality and background of characters even if it never came up in the books. i.e. Dumbaldor is gay and we only know this because she said so.

    I think it's import that diversity is handled in the right way making it an aspect of a character instead of being their defining feature

    As for making changes to suit an audience, your quite right any one who wishes to make money from their art will change it to suit the people paying the money.

  • Mighty No. 9 launches second crowdfunding campaign for "bonus" content

  • Moz 07/07/2014

    @S3M Maybe the answer is to start doing staged Kick starter campaigns. Still do one campaign but include a 3 step plan with targets and what they will show backers to prove they have met the development target, then they only get 1/3 of the money upfront. When they reach the first development target they show the demo that proves they've reach the goal and the backers get to vote on if the project deserves the next 1/3 of the money or not. then the same for the final third.

    @Playstationman power consumption was a big factor in going with jaguar cores. And as they showed in this article the number of cores/threads you can handle is becoming increasingly important. So the jaguar core likely work out as the best balance of processing power, cost and power consumption. Reply +6
  • MSI Nightblade review

  • Moz 22/06/2014

    @muzzakus not at all the specs are solid, will last a good while just not at max detail.

    Still think consoles are good value though. yes for 600 you can make a PC that "beats" consoles but it's not going to be noticeable enough to average person to get a system good enough to give you the minimum 1080p60 that people are asking for the your looking at over 1000 so for the average person 350 for a console will just always win out as the best compromise.
    PC will always be better but most people don't care.

  • Tech Analysis: Sunset Overdrive at E3 2014

  • Moz 19/06/2014

    @EricJohn004 and if they'd wanted to they could of hit 1080p but they chose to drop it to 900p in favour of other graphical improvements. However it would appear they haven't quite got the balance right yet as they don't have a stable framerate hopefully something they fix before release. I wish people would stop blaming the hardware when the issue is devs not working within the bounds of the hardware instead they are constantly putting graphical look ahead of anything else. There are so many devs that need to take a leaf from Nintendo's design book and make hitting a stable frame rate the number one priority. Reply 0
  • Entwined review

  • Moz 13/06/2014

    @Osahi this is why I think scores are bad because they are arbitrary yet sound "scientific" so people have specific (if differing) definitions of each score some people will have 4/10 down as being so bad / broken that it's not worth picking up even if your a die hard fan of that style of game. It's not as bad on sites that break it down cos then you know if the final score was because of bad gameplay or if it's a buggy mess. But personal I'd see scores done away with. You can then have editor and staff picks for games the site feels worthy of highlighting. Reply -3

  • Ubisoft holding back an unannounced, finished Wii U game until console sells more

  • Moz 10/06/2014

    @Ultonian it depends on a number of factors and I'm sure they've done their market research though even without having exact figures it's probably not far from the truth to assume that currently most WiiU owners are "nintendo gamers" so family game isn't going to have huge audience. And when it comes to Watch Dogs and other such titles most WiiU owners will have a current or last gen playstation or Xbox that'll play the game on instead for the better online and or graphics.
    Nintendos hardware choices put them in a difficult spot for third parties as generally the only games that will sell on WiiU are exclusives. While it may seem too soon and rather drastic I hope that Nintendo have plans to bring to release a new consoles next year if things aren't looking better by the end of this year

    Ok i'm not normally one to say this but that's bull shit!! PS+ members should just get the full game for the discounted price of 42.99 you'd have to be crazy to go for that.

    Humm will have to find it, but I'm sure they said that it was possible to get the platinum trophy with just the PS Plus version of game which was either a lie or there aren't any trophies for collecting lots of cars or racing on all the tracks.

    10 cars and 5 tracks seems more restrictive then they implies last year.

    While I know a lot of people will hate this idea but for this I would like to see the option for PS Plus copy owners to have option to buy extra countries worth of tracks or specific cars instead of having to stump up full price for the full game if you want more content. Or a heavily discounted upgrade would be even better.

  • EA adds micro-transactions to Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare

  • Moz 29/04/2014

    @melnificent firstly where is your evidence that the odds of what's in the packs is going to change? As long as the coin cost of packs and the rate of earning in game don't change then the addition of real money purchases changes nothing for people who don't want to pay.


    Not sure what diablo loot 2.0 has to do with but they were very clear that they were introducing changes to improve loot drops.

    As COD changes are you now saying the patches of any kind should be band because they "fundamentaly change" the product you bought? If that's the case there's an easy answer go unplug your Internet connection and enjoy living in your static world. Patching and changes to games post release has been part of console gaming for nearly 10 years now and even longer on PC some changes are good and some changes are bad get over it.

  • Moz 28/04/2014

    @melnificent How does it alter the game at a fundamental level? you can still continue to play with out using micro transactions. If they took away the option to earn coins that would he a different matter but they haven't. They've added a feature nothing more, surely paid for dlc is worse than this as map pack devide the player base. People are aiming their hate in completely the wrong direction just because it's EA and micro transactions. When for once they are doing things in a sensible manner. Free maps with paid for cosmetics (ones that you earn with time) is a good model that I hope to see more of Reply -3

    @melnificent sadly not they were very careful to always say "no micros at Launch " rather then at all.

    @Silverflash how so? You can continue to play the game without spending money this simply gives an option for people who are cash rich but time poor.

  • Don't be surprised that just 2.2% of F2P players spend money

  • Moz 22/04/2014

    It interesting to see that the top 10 based on average spend are mostly games that are seen to have a sensible F2P and mostly on PC. I have no issues with F2P done right and there's more then 1 way to achieve that. The trouble is that F2P done wrong tends to be in the mobile/Facebook space where they make a simple game that tens if not hundreds of millions of people will play and they then charge over the top prices for micro transactions knowing that even the 2% works out as alot of people. And it's F2P done wrong that most people see and associated with and then assume all F2P is bad Reply +1
