  • Video: The Order 1886 - debating the issue of value

  • Mr_Brown 20/02/2015

    Its simple. They are asking the same amount of money than every other AAA game out there. Many of these games offer online modes, multiplayer, open world elements and player choice. So why shouldn't this game be judged by the same standards? If they want to bemoan a 'cinematic' experience at the expense of these elements then they should compensate for this by reducing the price or offering more value elsewhere. Reply 0
  • Amid restructure and redundancies, Sega buys Marvel Puzzle Quest dev Demiurge

  • Mr_Brown 19/02/2015

    At one point this would be upsetting. However they are not the same company anymore and clearly don't have people there who can make anything good with their past franchises. I would rather go to mobile where i wont play their dross games than trying to live off past glories. Reply +2
  • Towerfall is adding an Anita Sarkeesian skin

  • Mr_Brown 10/02/2015

    Is this still a thing is it? I thought the media had got fed up trying to convince us we're all sexist in some way when people stopped reacting to the endless baiting lecturing.

    While I support equality for everyone in all areas. Very little good came from the whole controversy beyond people getting famous and harassed.

  • North America gets $15-a-month PlayStation Now subscription service

  • Mr_Brown 05/01/2015

    This is a great idea. They should find a way to intergrate it with Plus too. Perhaps offering a discounted price or allowing plus members access to two games per month which would give people a chance to try it out. Reply +30
  • Destiny has had just shy of 13 million players

  • Mr_Brown 23/12/2014

    I was one of those players. But to put some context to that 13 million figure. I have traded it in months ago due to being massively disapointed with the game. The core gameplay is good but the story, matchmaking, mission deaign and entire gameplay design was terrible imo.

    I'm sure i'm not the only one but i won't be buying any sequel until i see a complete change in this area. But considering they see this as a massive success looking at raw sales data i'm not sure anything will change anytime soon.

  • Final Fantasy Type-0 is your only way of getting the Final Fantasy 15 demo

    Lucky Type-0 is probably going to be good then. Though they really should release it for the Vita. Such a stupid move not making it available on that. Reply 0
  • Xbox One overtakes PS4 sales for November in UK and US

  • Mr_Brown 12/12/2014

    I have both consoles and its probably the best gaming I've had in some time. Both are great consoles. I would say the Xbone has better exclusives but the PS4 has better hardware and OS. Both of which could change in a year.

    Now all I need is a Wii U!

  • Iwata: Nintendo "must consider" ending region locking

  • Mr_Brown 03/11/2014

    Finally sense provails. They can only gain from this really. Its extra sales from a mad minority (such as myself) who would import niche RPGs etc that wouldn't be available to them.

    Now all we need is one Nintendo account for all consoles that carries over ala Xbox Live and PSN.

  • GTA: San Andreas HD on Xbox 360 is a mobile port

  • Mr_Brown 30/10/2014

    Bearing in mind they only charged 2.99 I don't see the problem. The game looks great in comparison to the originals. Sure there might be some problems with car controls, but they are hardly game breaking.

    This is the best version of the game available at the moment. While they are still go on the original consoles they have not aged well. Its great value for what they ask for.

  • PlayStation Plus' free November offerings revealed

    Its certainly not a bad month. But it is yet another disappointing one for PS4 owners. When are they going to start offering true next gen games? Even Knack would do at this point. Reply -1
  • Microsoft to end free Xbox Music streaming

  • Mr_Brown 23/10/2014

    Its insane how stupid big corporations can come across. They already have millions signed up for Xbox Live. Surely a large number of those like music enough to pay a few quid extra to stream it. I dunno they could let them stream said music in game too has an exclusive bonus.

    If you are already paying a subscription fee to a company no sane person is going to pay the same company 2 or 3 separate subscriptions.

  • E3 organiser and trade group ESA speaks out against GamerGate

  • Mr_Brown 16/10/2014

    I was hoping that has time went by the GamerGate issue would separate itself from the hate at the core this "femenist" debate.

    Let me get this straight. I support the core ideas of "gamergate". I completely disagree with the hate thrown at Zoe Quinn and Anita. I feel thoughs are separate issues to this anyway.

    But I do have strong concerns over the conduct of games journalists. And I know there are many like me who have no hatred towards anyone. All I want is clarification from journalists. Either they are a professional body and show how they try to be as unbiased as possible. Or they are bloggers but are honest about their personal opinions and how they effect their reporting (not necessarily bloggers but they post subjective opinions). Both approaches are fine, they are honest and you can take it or leave it.

    What raises concerns are articles like this. Which have dragged up an old issue and incited hate. They have thrown everyone who wants more open journalism with sexists and people who terrorise people over the web. These views are far from the truth and bigotted in themself. If Eurogamer feel the need to report and support femenism then that's fine. But articles like this only show you stand against a group of people and then smear their cause with hatred and bigoted views.

    I will make it clear. I do want fairer place in the games industry for all people. But articles like this highlight why GamerGate has been bubbling under the surface of the industry and will not go away until its taken seriously by websites and journalists alike.

  • Nintendo's New 3DS and 3DS XL make strong start in Japan

  • Anita Sarkeesian cancels university speech following school shooting threat

  • Mr_Brown 15/10/2014

    This whole thing is stupid. The whole femenist issue in gaming isn't that big of a deal. Its certainly not worth dying or killing over. I had really hoped that this whole thing had blown over but it seems the biggest idiots are still hell bent on targeting people like Anita and Zoe Quinn. It would be easy to call them sexist etc but at this point they are just targeting these individuals just to spread hate.

    It would be unfair to expect the gaming media to drop this feminism in gaming narrative too. But its too late for that now clearly. The actions of a bunch of idiots shouldn't be put on anyone else. But to persevere with a story and go against a large quantity of your audience knowing what they are publishing is stirring up hate. Regardless on your moral position you shouldn't be surprise when things like this happen.

    There have been wrongs on both sides. Which is why I hope this whole thing would just go away before someone actually gets hurt. Because in the end its all pretty pointless.

  • DriveClub dev "had confidence" servers would work

  • Mr_Brown 13/10/2014

    I was initially angry that they delayed the plus version of this. But given that servers have yet to work since launch it seems like the right call.

    I do feel for the people who have paid full price for this. But you cannot imagine what mess this would have been if it was released on the PS4 launch.

  • Destiny developer Bungie calls for Iron Banner feedback

  • Mr_Brown 09/10/2014

    Its terrible. But I don't have powerful gear so it isn't for me. Would rather they implemented matchmaking into the game which would be for everyone. Not catering for a small part of their user base. Reply 0
  • Sony "temporarily holding back" DriveClub's free PlayStation Plus edition

  • Mr_Brown 08/10/2014

    Well I certainly won't be buying it at this point. Though its ridiculous they waited until the day of release to delay it. If its an extra month or so I may just leave it, surely its better to get it out while interest is high. Though if it is as average has reviews make out its really no surprise. Reply +5
  • Sony confirms wheels that work with PS4 racer DriveClub

  • Mr_Brown 01/10/2014

    Feel bad for people who spend big money on wheels. But to be frank they really should have learnt their lesson. How long have Sony and MS been pulling this shit? Probably from the PS2 era.

    If they are going to charge what they do for accessories they should be compatible with every racer on that platform. But because the same people continue to buy them they will keep on doing it each time Gran Turismo or For a comes out.

  • Meet Hajime Tabata, Final Fantasy's latest saviour

  • Mr_Brown 23/09/2014

    I'll try to be open minded about this one. But following FFXIII the last thing the series needs is to become more simplistic and casual. If anything it really needs to step back to its roots and bring back the series identity it has slowly abandoned. Reply +3

  • Destiny thrills, but the big picture rings hollow

  • Mr_Brown 10/09/2014

    It just simply needs matchmaking outside PVP stuff. The idea of forcing people to play with friends is admirable. But at this stage of the gen friend may be on different platforms. Which why most of the time the game feels like an empty wasteland.

    They need to patch this in or it will become this years top preowned game.

  • Microsoft to buy Mojang for $2 billion - report

  • Mr_Brown 10/09/2014

    So I take it we can kiss goodbye to a vita version then.

    I can see why they have done this. But its a ridiculous waste of money which they are never going to make back. With MS ownership I would imagine there will be limited platforms its released on for a start. And there really no guarantee how much longer this thing has. It certainly cannot last forever in its current form.

    For that money they could have brought twitch or the next GTA game as an exclusive. Or maybe a timed exclude of the next CoD. All of which would be less of a gamble.

  • PS3 and Xbox 360 Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor delayed

    Hardly surprising. This is why I upgraded to the PS4 today. I'm sick of being shafted on price, delays and limited stock for last gen versions.

    I understand why they do this but if it comes to this sort of practice then why bother releasing it on last gen systems? Especially when they are trying to block their own sales.

  • Editor's blog: A brief note about "GamerGate"

  • Mr_Brown 02/09/2014

    The ironic thing is that branding people sexist or generalising a demograth is equally hateful. I have no problem with Anita. Her views are valid and with some merit.

    Though I do have a deep distain for Zoe Quinn. Granted she certainly did not deserve a lot of the personal attacks she has received. But some of the allocations made against her should have been investigated. The truth about the Wizardchan incident which started this. Also whether she closed down a legitimate femenist charity. None of this have been looked into as it has fallen under the sexism abuse and lost in the nonsense. Which is where my disdain comes from.

    If my dislike of Zoe Quinn makes me sexist then I guess I have a different meaning of the word. This article would have been more acceptable than the last click bate one. But your credibility is in the gutter despite this now. But that's just my opinion.

  • Telltale's Game of Thrones series setting teased

    I'm glad they using existing but relatively unknown family. Will allow room to be creative. Quite excited about this. Seems like a good fit with this series though it would be nice if they updated the game engine as it has slightly let Wolf Among Us and WD season 2 down a little recently.

    Would love to see a Breaking Bad Telltale game too.

  • After a decade away, Dragon Quest returns to PlayStation

  • Why we need more developers like Zoe Quinn

  • Mr_Brown 30/08/2014

    I literally cannot believe this shit. What a tasteless article within the context of what has happened. This is the final straw for me, this site has no credibility anymore. You have really let yourself down, but I guess if its clicks and revenue that you are after your a success.

    I think its clear the industry needs less of the likes of Zoe Quinn. And that is nothing to do with her gender but more to do with how she conduct s herself professionally.

    The idea behind is admirable. There does need to be more games about mental health. But this is not that game and I'm sure reasons behind this game had a different agenda. Just like this article. But that will be lost in the hate and arguing.

    Well done Eurogamer :-)

    That's rubbish. Though I guess sales say otherwise. I really like AC4 and so long as they add new features like the boat combat, I'm happy.

    Though it would be stupid of ubisoft to ignore this "minority" until it starts to hit sales. By that point it could be to late to save the franchise.

  • Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 release date announced, demo due in September

  • Mr_Brown 13/08/2014


    It depends, they could get a lot of trade in sales by disgruntled or bored Fifa owners. Also I think the whole Fifa Vs PES thing doesn't effect sales that much. If you prefer PES over Fifa you will buy PES regardless of if it comes out last. Just like most Battlefield fans are in phased by CoD.

    Though with EA licenses as and market domination it would be foolish for PES to try and compete. Its never going to out sell it.

    As far as I'm concerned processing power and graphics are meaningless as long as touchscreen is the only control input.

  • Sony says EA Access program isn't "good value"

  • Mr_Brown 30/07/2014

    Well considering they are prepping the launch of their rental service later this year ( PlayStation now) it's hardly surprising they don't want a competitor launching before them. Especially if they get the pricing wrong and anger gamers poisoning the well, which EA have a track record of.

    Though to be fair Sony have not decided on pricing yet. So it will be interesting to see what price they go for after this.

  • Telltale's The Walking Dead: Season Three confirmed

  • Mr_Brown 28/07/2014

    Cannot understand the season 2 hate. Really enjoyed it from start to finish so far. Its certainly not as good as the first which was a classic. But I think a lot of people are being overly harsh because of that.

    I do think telltale need to rethink how they plan the episodes though. The gaps between them are too big and some feel (on technical level) rushed. I would prefer to wait longer and have them finish them in one go. Then release them two weekly.
