  • Watch someone complete Bloodborne in 40 minutes

  • Olemak 31/03/2015

    @scuffpuppies ran out of molotov, stocked up and went back but found a shortcut to a positively huge area hidden behind some crates. While exploring that area, I sort of stopped sucking so bad at playing. Cleric Beast is in for some schooling next time we meet :)

    Amazing game. GotY came early this year.

  • Spotify app launches today, exclusive to PlayStation "for the foreseeable"

  • Olemak 30/03/2015

    Switched on my PS4 just now to check, could not find it anywhere. Maybe because I am in Norway? Anybody been able to start it up yet?

    EDIT: I checked again, it's there now. Working very well, it seems. Especially the "operate from Phone" is pretty awesome.

    Oh, and adding custom playlists to games awesome. Not so much for Bloodborne and The Last of Us, perhaps, but playing Shadow of Mordor with Laiback playing in the background - yeah, I'll give that a shot!

    Should we form a Eurogamers Suitable Playlist for Specific Games Syndicate? Over on the forum?

    Still, very healthy sales for a platform exclusive that clearly is an acquired taste.

    Did anyone else notice that A Plain Doll is voiced by Evetta Muradasilova, who also voiced the Maiden in Black back in Demon's Souls?

  • Destiny item comparison sacrificed for expanded vaults on last-gen

  • Olemak 27/03/2015

    There it is. Today's Destiny patch note.

    Why is Eurogamer still covering this game in such minute detail? I mean - is this news? Is it at all interesting? I would think that anyone interested in Destiny receives patch notes in newsletters and as notifications when they log in - so who is this kind of "news" really written for?

    It is becoming hard to disagree with the tinfoil hat crew regarding a possible agreement between Eurogamer and Activision...

  • Bloodborne dev working on a patch to improve load times

  • Olemak 24/03/2015

    @Plankton1975 ah, turbo tape. Sweet, mis-spent youth.

    Those c64 games didn't make me reload from tape every I died, though. That would be harsh.

    Maybe the souls series is so old skool hardcore now that they've started using turbo tape to load the game :)

  • World Bank exec discovers son spent $4500 on FIFA packs

  • Olemak 18/03/2015

    Hey, I have an idea! Let's all go into defensive mode and pretend that microtransactions are great, that the very existence of a "player pack" costing twice as much as the full game is just great, and that companies enabling these scams have absolutely no responsibility.

    Sure, lets go with the "it's all the parents responsibility" and "you wouldn't let you children play with a loaded gun, so why do you think a loaded console/pc/tablet/phone is OK?", but the bottom line is: Stories like this discredits games and gaming as a whole. Stories like these make games seem dangerous, harmful, scam-based traps that should be avoided, and that no sane parent would allow their child to play, because Games Make Bad Things Happen.

    That's not cool. There might not be a link between games and violence, but there sure is a link between games and ridiculous creditcard statements. Some smart guy said that "there is no mobile gaming industry any more, now there's just a mobile scamming industry". That this practice is seeping into console games too is all bad, if you ask me.

  • King's Quest: How Sierra plans to reboot a three decade old classic

  • Olemak 18/03/2015

    Well done! I started watching the video with a raised eyebrow and sort of a frown, thinging "Ugh, leave the dead to their slumber" or something like that, but went that negative stance to "oh, looks like the same art style as Ni No Kuni, exept..." and ended up on "can't wait to play this with my kids, wonderful voice on the narrator, when is it out? Please be soon!".

    I really hope the game lives up to this teaser video, it looks really promising.

  • PlayStation just brought in 3bn for Sony

  • Olemak 17/03/2015

    Glad to see PS+ doing the business for Sony. That means they should be able to afford putting some AAA PS4 games on the service... the selection is fantastic for PS3 (Dishonoured next month, yay!) and Vita. But there have not been a really "big" PS4 game yet. New 'n' Tasty was a nice treat, though. I think it's time to dish out some AAA goodies like Killzone, Tomb Raider Reboot, Second Son or maybe even Inquisition. It is DLC season, after all, and BioWare did offer Mass Effect 3 on PS+ pretty early. Reply +3
  • Bloodborne's combat convinced me I don't need a sword and shield any more

  • Olemak 16/03/2015

    This game scares me. Makes me want to go back to Demon's Souls, where I feel safe :)

    Day one purchase. Digital copy, as I will probably be playing this for years and I can't risk disc-scratching.

    This is finally (hopefully!) the game that justifies the new generation (along with Witcher 3, maybe). Extreme expectations - I have faith that From and Japan Studio can actually deliver on this insanely tall order.

  • Alien Isolation dev hiring for "another multiplatform AAA blockbuster"

  • Olemak 10/03/2015

    I hope they're also working on something set in the Viking: Battle for Middle Earth universe. I love that game, even though it did not go down too well with reviewers. Would very much like to see a continuation of the best ideas found in that game, more dynamic battles, sorta MOBA-like stuff and prepping for battles with quests.

    Just dreaming I guess. I fear the Viking franchise did poorly, sales wise, and is dead and gone forever. Looking forward to what's next from them anyway, Creative Assembly is one of the very best developers around.

  • Shadow of Mordor does simply win GDC 2015 Game of the Year

  • Olemak 05/03/2015

    Well deserved, without a doubt the best game I played last year, and (IMHO) the only game that actually pushes the gameplay envelope a bit on next gen - the nemesis system is the shape of things to come I hope.

    Mordor copied the best parts from great games, and added fantastic ideas to the mix. I hope other studios will copy them as shamelessly as Monolith copied Rocksteady (combat), Ubisoft (open-world traversal) and Gearbox (those captain and warchief intros).

  • EA shuts down Spore and SimCity developer Maxis

  • Olemak 05/03/2015

    @Kysen I doubt Visceral will be shut down because of Hardline. It's not a bad game, it's just not really thrilling, and the cops and robbers thing feels a bit shoe-horned to match the Battlefield formula.

    But Visceral have proven that they can work efficiently with the Frostbite engine and make a perfectly serviceable game, even if most Battlefield fans will prefer playing BF4 a bit longer instead of jumping on this years iteration.

    They're the kind of company that can take an assignment and a set of instructions and produce something perfectly serviceable. They can also come up with valuable franchise ideas of their own - Dead Space was killed by EA's instructions to microtransaction it to death, not by any design flaw Visceral came up with. I think they're just the kind of company that will survive within EA.

    If the bigwigs want a game about wizards from the moon fighting robot dinosaurs using the Frostbite engine, then Visceral is exactly the kind of team you want. They follow orders.

  • Bullfrog classic Syndicate free on EA Origin now

  • Olemak 04/03/2015

    @Malek86 That's weird. I bought it there just last week, and paid 36 NOK - that's about 4 euro. Checked Steam before buying obviously, where it was 200 NOK (about 23 euros).

    I'm in Norway, maybe that has something to say; I did think the Steam price of exactly 200 NOK was a bit odd; currency conversions usually means that prices are less "round".

    Spore is still 200 NOK on Steam for me, by the way, so regional prices must have something to say, VAT alone does not explain the difference between your 14.99 and my 23.22 (NOK 200) for the same game, in the same online store.

    Stop the press! Heads will roll! I demand the president's immediate resignation! Which president? ANY president!

    @Malek86 Aww, come on, don't be like that! Not every story has to be front page shockers.

    I don't mean it's illegal or anything, it's just that the price dicrepancy was so huge it made my eyebrows arch. I think Spore was 600 to 700 percent more expensive on Steam. If they do that for all backlog titles, that would be interesting. Nothing more.

    I think EA's pricing strategies for Origin could be an interesting read, being interested in games and all. Not really demanding the retirement of cabinet members or excommunication of ministers over the Origin Pricing Scandal :D

    Would be more interesting than the weekly patch notes for Destiny, at least.

    I have Origin for the freebies too, but when my 9-year-old started asking about getting Spore, which is apparently still a big hit with kids, I bought it off Origin rather than Steam - at about a sixth of the price, I might add. I think EA is deliberately trying to make Steam uncompetitive with EAs own catalogue of games. Hey, might that be a theory worth checking out for an enterprising games journalist? Reply +2

    Rebellion really should bundle this with Sniper Elite 3 and those Save Churchill mission packs, and have the cheek to call it GOTY edition or something :)
    Better yet: call it the "71% on Metacritic Edition" :D

    So PS+ is approaching an annual revenue of half a billion pounds?
    That is pretty staggering, and I hope it means they'll start splashing out more big-ticket PS4 titles soon. The PS+ selection on PS3 and Vita is excellent, but there have not been enough BIG, triple-A games for PS4 yet.

    Come on, give us Killzone at least... keep on making the service even better value for customers, and you'll get even more subscribers; easy as pie.

  • Digital Foundry: Hands-on with Sony's near-final Project Morpheus

  • Olemak 04/03/2015

    They could probably bundle PS Eye, Move and Move Navigator for 50. They'll probably make a revised edition of the Move (call it "Wand" this time - just to confuse the Xbox One retailers!) and PS Eye for Morpheus, though. Move and Eye was released almost 10 years ago, I'd assume it's ready for an upgrade.

    Adding PS+ to the cost does not make sense, really; that service has a lot of benefits beyond online gaming and we don't even know how well VR will stack up with multiplayer games. If you're going to add the PS+ subscription, you should subtract the price of a high-end TV, fair is fair :)

    They could probably launch a Morpheus Bundle including a month of PS+ for the same price as a PS4 and it would sell quite well to people who already have a PS4. Then cut prices gradually as early adopter demand is met and VR goes mainstream. Personally, I don't think WR will reach the mainstream this decade, but you never know.

    maybe a decent PC is a better option if you've got that much to spend, but remember that PC gaming has a certain treshold. There's drivers, cooling, upgrade options, viruses and malware, fan noise. You have to calibrate the head tracking with the head set and find a better input interface thatn a gamepad. Additionally, PCs are often rather large, and cabinets are often quite garish, so the Wife Approval Factor is low.

    A Playstation VR setup would probably be plug and play, updating itself, no viruses, it's small, discrete and quiet. Those things does not matter much for enthusiasts in the know, but it's important for the mass market. If VR does indeed become the Next Big Thing (I have doubts!), PS4 + Morpehus has a good change of dominating the casual/mainstream market - but enthusiasts will still go with Rift and High End PC's I think.

  • Screamride review

  • Olemak 03/03/2015

    @Philip45 Thanks, I appreciate the insights. I have not tried the Oculus, no, so I am talking out of my arse basically :)

    I have three major reservations about VR, though:

    1. Technological.
    I just don't think the hardware is up for the task, particularly not stuff like Morpheus which is supposed to run off a PS4. I can see a lot of investments failing badly, and both investors and early adopters getting shafted by the hype. The tech is not ready. But, of course, in time it will be. So this is a temporary thing.

    2. Gameplay constraints
    In my simple mind, I believe that games well suited for VR are fairly slow-moving, first person games. So, a game that has you strapped inside a cockpit like Elite could certainly work well. FIFA, I don't know, mabe - what's your take? CoD, Battlefield et cetera - definately not. Too fast, to much head tracking, too much motion sickness. So games (and tastes) will have to change. But this is also temporary perhaps, gameplay preferences change rather quickly with advancing technology. Games have changed a lot the last 10 years.

    3. Social/Acceptance
    This is the big one for me. Maybe I am a Luddite here, but I just don't think the general public will ever accept VR. Point in case: I have a son. He dissapears completely into his game. Give him an iPad and a game, and you can tear the house down around him without him even noticing. He's zoned out completely.
    Now - there is no way I will ever get him a VR headset, or accept one in the house. He's absorbed by his games enough already.

    The soccer moms who bought Kinects and Wiis by the truckload will feel the same way, perhaps even stronger. A lot of people will not only dislike VR, they will fight it actively. I can see a sizeable anti-VR movement catching on, and I think it will be really bad news for investors. I think it will remain an enthusiasts market, even when the technology matured, and I think a lot of the startups will fail horribly, hurting the games industry severely, and the technology and media sector too.

    I don't think a lot of people has stopped and really thought about what full immersion would entail. I have, and I just don't think it is a very good idea, even if it works from a technical perspective.

    Sorry for the rant!

    @Simatron3000 Agreed, but regarding cable it could be dual HDMI; makes sense as there is one screen for each eye. Reply -1
  • Olemak 03/03/2015

    @Simatron3000 I agree, and that's partly why I think the current stab at VR is going to fail. A PS4 + Morpehus, or an Xbox One + Oculus Rift just isn't going to hack it. A moderately priced 4k/120fps setup is years out, I don't think it's feasible today on even the highest end PC's?

    But even when the technical hurdles are eventually overcome, I'm still lukewarm for VR. Maybe a rollercoaster simulater is perfect for VR, but it is just not the kind of game I am interested in. On-rail shooters, train driving sim, catch-the-ball sims all that Moly Milo stuff could actually work well with VR, but it all seem very boring to me, even if it is really very immersive.

  • Olemak 03/03/2015

    @arcam Yeah, this is probably exactly the kind of game that could work in VR, but it would be very dependent on framerate and resolution I should think.

    I don't know if the current generation of hardware (perhaps more relevant question for a PS4 game, as they've got the VR headset coming up) could do stereoscopic 60 or even 30 frames per second (per eye) for this title or something like it in whatever resolution the Oculus or Morpheus has.
    Guessing not.

  • Duke Nukem 3D dev re-reveals action RPG Bombshell

  • Olemak 03/03/2015

    Pointless change to please a bunch of overly sensitive crybabies.
    Right back at'cha: It appears some "overly sensitive crybabies" can't get over the fact that the main character is wearing clothes now.

    The original design sucked, man. It. Was. Teh. Crapzor.
    With or without the bikini. The arm and hand looked like a tin can with metal prawns sticking out.
    Character looks better now.

    Also note how Bombshell's still showing of plenty of cleavage, as being shot in the heart, lungs or spine isn't that big a deal. This character is far from up to Sarkeesian standards (or Marcus Fenix' standards for that matter), even though the design is significantly improved from the original teaser. Just saying.

  • Watch indie games star in House of Cards season three

  • Olemak 02/03/2015

    memorably, saw him wax lyrical about his precious PlayStation Vita.
    Actually, that's not true if I recall correctly. Frank Underwood's never shown to own or use a Vita, but on finding a colleagues' son's Vita laying on a coffee table he picks it up and says something to the effect of "Is this a Playstation Vita? I should get one of these for the car".

    The Monument Valley scene was cool, I think it convinced my wife to try it. I bet they're seeing a crazy sale spike right now.

    Also related to gaming: President Frank Underwood hires a game reviwer (and author) to be his autobiographer. It's a Monument Valley review that lands the writer the gig, not the novels he's published.

  • Tomb Raider, BioShock Infinite free via Games with Gold in March - report

  • Olemak 25/02/2015

    @mattk84 PS+ is still mostly good for PS3. And, to be fair, so is the Games With Gold thing. That Tomb Raider game is the old gen version; PS+ had that for PS3 at least 6 months ago. Bioshock Infinite was on PS+ a year ago or so. Rayman Legends is a good offering for Xbox One, tho. Respect.

    But I agree, not a lot of great PS+ games for PS4 yet. The Infamous expandalone was OK, but apart from that it's been mostly indies so far. I guess the library has to mature a bit before they can start giving triple-A games away. KillZone should be ready for PS+ soon (I hope).

  • Sony's big new three-year strategy bets on PS4

  • Olemak 18/02/2015

    I am dreaming of a specialized "Gamer TV", and Sony is in a unique position to make it happen. They could develop market an improved interface between TV and Console, with some cool added features for gamers, like:

    * That image update synch thing Nvidia's got going, that Digital Foundry's been talking about, making the most of whatever framerate you've got. No lost frames, rock-solid image even at 30FPS, yeaaah....

    * A separate setting/profile for PS4, calibrating and optimising gamma levels and what not automatically when the input switches to a PS4, which the TV "understands", being smart and all.

    * I rather liked the SimulView thing, that would let two viewers with 3D glasses see different screens on the same TV. I thought the
    concept was awesome, especially for couch coop, but the games supporting it never materialized fully on the PS3, and the tech just wasn't quite powerful enough with PS3. With PS4, however... Same-screen coop like that for Uncharted 4 and the next Killzone? Yes please! That should shift some units and establish the concept.

    * Full support for CEC, which would let you control your PS4 with the TV remote - not for gaming, of course, but great as a remote for media playback and browsing.

    And just to be totally awesome, make most of those features compatible with the Xbox One too, maybe even Wii U and PC if that is even plausible, and score big with the entire gamer crowd. Brand it cleverly, call it something like "Gamer TV" or "ConsoLink" or whatever, slap a sticker on it - BOOM, headshot! I know what TV I'd start saving for... and it would definately set it apart from the Samsung Smart TV's.

  • Spotify headed to PS3 and PS4

  • Olemak 29/01/2015

    @Playstationman I'm probably not doing it right, then :) But a lot of game developers must be doing it wrong too, as they tend to drench their soundscapes in grunge-punk or dubstep every chance they get.

    I must say one of the most memorable gaming moments I had on the PS3 was playing WipeOut HD. I got tired of the hard trance playlist that came with the game. There were no gear changes to listen for. So I ripped my favourite CD at the time (this was a long time ago), it was an early Anna Ternheim album I remember, and used that as background music.

    That was pretty cool, different, gave the game a calmer, more deliberate feel. When the hovership entered a tunnel, the music got this metallic echo, just as if I was actually in a tin tunnel, actually listning to Anna Ternheim! And then someone hit me with EMP or something, and the music was muffled and distant for a few seconds - it was awesome! It was not just playing the music over the game sounds, it integrated with the game! Great gaming experience.

    I'll take more of that sort. But maybe not for driving games then, as I now understand it is a sin. Would it be OK if I listen to some Depeche Mode while finishing off the last trophies in SteamWorld Dig?

  • Olemak 29/01/2015

    @justerthought i agree that personal music is unsuitable for some games. Like, romping through middle earth as Talion, playing Adam Ant in the ackground would be wrong, as the game has an excellent score.

    But sports games, driving games in particular, are very well suited to personal playlist. those games often just has soundtracks instead of theatrical scores, and even in the rare case where th e selection is excellent, it gets old after a while.

    For enjoyable indie games it will also be nice to swap out the repetitive 16 bit music with something more varied. And playing battlefield 4 with the doors, maybe some hendrix in the background, why not?
