  • Two discs "wasn't practical" for Halo: Master Chief Collection

  • Moz 20/10/2014

    @jcaspian Given that it would appear you can't play the game without the extra 20GB then why both buying a physical copy at all? This is clearly another move by MS to force Digital on people, which is just more of their anti-consumer BS which will loose them sales. Hell I'm annoyed despite buy 90% of my games digitally anyway, there's just no need for them to force the issue like this. Reply +5

    Well I call bull shit Forza 4 on 360 came on 2 disks and one of them was simply data that installed to the hard drive and you could then just leave that disk in the box for ever more. Reply +17
  • UK gov changing law to get tough on internet trolling

  • Moz 20/10/2014

    @DanSmith09 Not completely as saying something to someone face to face will only be herd by a handful of people, when you saying online it's generally seen by alot more people.

    What we have to hope though is that policy and the courts use common sense when applying this law.

  • We cannot let this become gaming culture

  • Moz 17/10/2014

    Self importance and entitlement are a part of the human condition, arguable an import one the has help drive us to achieve great things. Sadly the anonymity of the Internet removes alot of the reprocusions that help to stop people getting out of control. I just hope that as a community we can find a way to clamp down on out of order behaviour before governments and police authorities get too involved. Reply +2

  • Wii U GameCube controller adapter compatible with more than just Smash Bros.

  • Moz 08/10/2014

    Humm that's a shame the adaptor will need to be super cheap to be worth while

    Edit; managed to miss price in article 18 is too much for only smash. Will use the money for an extra pro controller instead

    @Great-Googly-Moogly Fair enough. I'm still looking forward to playing it too. Sometimes having your expectations lowered before hand can make the game better as you then see all the good stuff instead of the disappointments Reply +1

    Surely the closed Beta must start soon after this maintenance? I'd guess 2 to 4 weeks for them to test out the changes with the existing Alpha testers then do a big Close Beta invite. Please .... Pretty Please. Reply -1

    @reggy72 @DaveSimonH and it's not like the cream of rare achieved much after rare anyway. Timesplitters was great but seems they ran out of steam after that. A developer is little more then a name plus a collection of IP with or without outside influence there's no guarantee of the quality of their next game as staff come and go as they please. Reply 0

    @Darren mk8 and 3d World still look great on my 55 screen. Plus how many of those 360/PS3 games also have a solid 60fps? The WiiU hardware is never going to set the world on fire but the improved shaders and lighting put it ahead of last gen Reply +8
  • Performance Analysis: Destiny on Xbox One

  • Moz 12/09/2014

    @cruzkit firstly games having parity between the systems doesn't prove anything in regard to which is the more powerful hardware.

    However you are right that what's more important is how good is the game. From what I've played so far it is very good though I'm concerned that it's going to get repetitive quickly.
    Reply +1
  • Moz 12/09/2014

    @andrewrafter or the games are being made with parity in mind for a multiplat game it makes sence to have both versions the same even if one set of hardware could do better. Reply -1

  • 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
  • Moz 13/08/2014

    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)

  • Moz 30/07/2014

    @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.

  • Moz 30/07/2014

    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


    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.

    @chucklepie let's not start that one again just because a company's staff aren't diverse doesn't make them racist or sexist unless you can provide evidence that they have hired people based on race or sex. In fact wouldnt it be worse to hire someone because they fill a gap in your staffs diversity when you have other applicant who are better qualified? Reply 0

  • 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.
