  • Is DriveClub finally up to speed?

  • Mr_Brown 02/07/2015

    I really like Drive Club. But it really is hamstrung by its basic and dated design. There is an absolutely fantastic racing game in there but its stuck behind game design from the PGR or even MSR days. With a layout similar to Forza or GT it could one of the best racing games ever. It doesnt even have to match them like for like.

    I also disagree with the hate for The Crew. Its an MMO before its a racing game imo. Its more about the expansive world and multiplayer before driving and racing.

  • Formula E field coming to Forza Motorsport 6

  • Mr_Brown 02/07/2015

    This all sounds good. But all i want to know is how many cars will be available buying the standard game. How many cars will be "pre order bonuses", special editions and dlc packs. I bet it isn't 450.

    Its what put me off Forza 5 and it pisses me off because I've loved the series since the first one.

  • DriveClub PlayStation Plus Edition launches with "caution" tomorrow

  • Mr_Brown 24/06/2015

    I seriously dont know why people are making a big deal about this. This game has been available for extremely cheap and the amount of content available for that is ridiculous.

    But the people complaining about dont care about that. They have already decided they dont like the game and have no intention of playing it. But still want it to be released on plus on principal because Sony said they would.

    Its pathetic. Let it go.

  • Shenmue 3 returns, but has it already been left behind?

  • Mr_Brown 18/06/2015

    I'm realistic about what this game will be. Even if its the same dated dreamcast engine with minor improvements I'll be very happy. Its more Shenmue and its a new experience from the dreamcast era. Which can only be a good for me. I'm aure they'll be alot of angry people expecting it to be GTA6 level. Reply +4
  • Shenmue 3 sets Guinness World Record for quickest video game crowdfunding

  • Mr_Brown 17/06/2015

    I have backed this. Ive never used Kickstarter before this but i had to support this. Ive been waiting years for any news of this and had honestly given up hope of ever seeing it made.

    So hopefully this will show Sega how much support they could get if they listened to their fans. I understand they are not the same company or people but surely they could come up with something with such a wealth of well known ip. Hopefully this opens their eyes and makes them release Shenmue 1 and 2 hd.

  • Video: Games that do mental health right

  • Mr_Brown 10/06/2015

    A good video the games in there look great except Depression Quest which doesn't deserve to be there but i knew it would be. There are some glaring omissions though Spec Ops for example was fantastic in weaving mental health into the story. How Silent Hill 2 wasn't mentioned is also incredible as its probably the best to date imo.

    Again really disapointed Depression Quest continues to be lauded in these sort of lists. It sucks as a game and doesn't do a good job at all of representing mental health issues. And knowing the background of the game i doubt it was created for good will of its subject matter ether. Stinks of one journalist tipping their hat to a mate rather than a solid choice.

  • Project Cars overtakes 1m sales

    @GeminiXLII

    Last time I checked you couldn't also driveva car with an Xbox One / PS4 controller if your car didn't have a steering wheel.

    I'm also pretty sure you couldnt just sign up for F1 or any other championship tomorrow and race ether.

    No offense but you understand what 'simulator' means but forgot that it is also a game too and what that means.

  • Mr_Brown 05/06/2015

    @WorldScaper I am slightly disapointed with it. I really want to like it. But it needs to be more accessable. Its all well and good offering so much stuff but if only the most hardcore can access it then whats the point?

    Having a specific controller setting just to make the game playable is completly unacceptable. No rewind is a poor choice too. Just having as an option you can turn on (but not as default) would be nice. When ive persevered and got by these peoblems it has been one of the best racing games I've ever played.

  • Splatoon ties end in seemingly arbitrary wins

  • Mr_Brown 02/06/2015

    Its because someone has to win. It isn't a big deal as an absolute draw is almost impossible and a result noone wants.

    I have also noticed eurogamers need to generate negetive opinion on various games. I suppose its the state of video game journalism which has to have a narrative. Having a negetive view on a new ip which is loved by its fans will generate more clicks which is the most important thing these days.

  • Could the Apple Watch become one of gaming's Galapagos Islands?

  • Mr_Brown 22/04/2015

    @Ajent

    Not really. Its an expensive piece of tech that solves no functional problem or adds anything that anyone needs. Of course there will be a small segment of people who have a genuine use for it. But for the most part its main audience will want it because of fashion, because its new tech or because the brand.

    I have similar opinions on tablets. However at least these have more functions and dont require another expensive device from the same company.

    Its a stupid device for stupid people. Which probably means its be the best selling thing ever.

  • Headteachers threaten to report parents who let their children play 18-rated games

  • Mr_Brown 30/03/2015

    Its a tough issue, but I agree there needs to be more strict guidlines on this issue. Don't get me wrong i have no problem with 15 - 17 year olds playing 18 rated games. But on numerous occasions in game shop have i seen sub 10 year olds looking at games like Dying Light, CoD and GTA V with there parents. Or them already having these games.

    Everyone is different but surely there needs to be lline with these games. Especially with content getting more mature. Game retailers cannot stop parents buying their children these games. But anything that at least educates these parents can only be a good thing.

  • The Legend of Zelda Wii U will not launch in 2015

  • Mr_Brown 28/03/2015

    This is only good news. I'm genuinely excited for an open world Zelda game. But what they have shown so far has been underwhelming. Extra time and new ideas will only help this.

    And to be honest the Wii U isnt hurting for games this year.

  • The Crew time-limited trial launches for PS4, Xbox One

  • Mr_Brown 25/03/2015

    I can understand the hate for this. But I'm really enjoying it. Its worth playing for the game world and online. Handling improves as you level. You really need to look at this has a MMO rather than a pure racer. Earning money is a problem to but it gets better the higher your level. Reply +4
  • The best PS4 games

  • Mr_Brown 22/03/2015

    Yep, DriveClub needs to be on this list. It was a 6/10 game at launch but with the tons of content and impprovements has changed the game completly.

    Its one of the best racing games this gen along with The Crew both of which are underrated.

  • Final Fantasy Type-0 HD review

  • Titanfall: One year on

  • Mr_Brown 19/03/2015

    Whenever i play the game I always enjoy it something I never have had with CoD. I only paid 10 for the game and all the DLC too.

    It certainly lacks load options. The lack of guns and upgrades can make the game feel light on content. I'm really looking forward to the sequel though.

  • With the announcement of the NX, Nintendo admits defeat with the Wii U

  • Mr_Brown 18/03/2015

    I think its the concept of the console that meant its downfall rather than trying to keep up with ether console. A dedicated system without that controller would have been very successful. It would have been cheaper much sooner and better supported.

    Nintendo should not try and compete with Ms or Sony. Just continue creating their unique games and systems. There is clearly room in the market for them to do so.

  • Square Enix teases an unannounced console JRPG for fiscal 2015

  • Mr_Brown 18/03/2015

    @Ozziw Yep that is true. Its not that I hate FFVII or anything. Its the game that started a long interest into JRPGs. But i cannot see how they could remake it and doe the game justice. It would be so different that it wouldn't even be anything ressembling FFVII. And because of FFXIII and Advent Children i dont trust them to do a good job. Reply +4
  • Mr_Brown 18/03/2015

    I hope its Rogue Galaxy 2 or Dragon Quest XI for PS4.

    It'll probably be some bullshit about lightning or FFXIII or a remake of FF VII that everyone thinks they want but forgets its aged really poorly. Even if they fix it to the standards of today it will be a different game and will not match the nostagic high standards everyone has of it. If they update the orignals graphics and leave the game as it was people will realise how linear and how basic it is now.

  • 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

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    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.

  • 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.

    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.

    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.
