  • Destiny 2 review

  • RFturrican 15/09/2017

    I think recommended is about right.

    All this talk about micro transactions again. I'm not going to pay for anything other than the expansion pass and I'll be happy enough with that. I also believe that Bungie will have learnt their lessons with the expansion stuff as well (also, isn't it £5 CHEAPER this time round?)

    The other thing you have to remember is that there are people out there who still play World of Warcraft on PC, which is the closest thing I can relate to with Destiny.

    Now, I'm not including the price of the games, but in terms of after launch:

    £10 x 12 months = £120 for Warcraft
    £30 x 2 year transaction + £40 Xbox Live pass = £100 (£110 for PSN owners)

    I may get shot down, but at the end of the day I enjoyed playing the first one and I'm really enjoying the second Destiny game. This doesn't bother me, simply because I won't buy micro transactions and I get to play a shooter with my friends and work colleagues.

    If you don't like paying extra, don't pay it. Nobody is forcing a gun to your head to do it, or if they are, it'll be 30 light higher than yours and an Exotic with Arc damage.

  • Sonic Mania is the sequel we've waited 23 years for

  • RFturrican 16/08/2017

    Super Metroid, how did you sneak in there? (10.22 in case you're wondering)

    I hope though, that this allows the team behind this to do a full on NEW Sonic game, as that is what everyone has been crying out for...

    .... right?

  • Middle-earth: Shadow of War has loot boxes

  • RFturrican 10/08/2017

    @Shambozo Of course it is in their interest to make players buy them, as it is a business acumen and therefore a massive benefit to them.

    The only point I'm trying to make is that noone is holding a gun to anyone's head to make you buy them. Businesses want to make as much money out of the public as they can, that's how it has always been. The public, including myself, may not agree with these methods, but we make our feelings known by not purchasing these things and only buying what we want to, which for me will be the game and the expansions, but nothing more.

    Christ, I'd rather have it like Doom's method, in giving the gamer the whole lot as a freebie further down the line to go with the basic game.

    All I'm trying to get across is that at the end of the day, you don't have to buy it to get everything out of the game, but those who want to get everything NOW will be hard pushed to resist.

    @Shambozo I can assure you, sir, I'm as wide awake as anyone and don't need coffee to see what's going on.

    What I'm getting at is that the micro transactions in this game will be NON ESSENTIAL. If you don't want to buy the loot crates, well, don't buy them.

    Micro transactions will be here to stay, just like season passes caused such an uproar when they began to trawl out in the previous generation. The fact is you do not have to buy them.

    At least they are giving the option, unlike other publishers.....

    @TheLittlestHobo I haven't played it no, but what gets me is that when I was a kid, we had to plough through games to get things. I don't see why this is any different. All this gold thing does is add an easy out for people who don't want to put the hours in.

    I don't know about anyone else, but I enjoyed Mordor that much I was happy to put that time in.

    Don't get me wrong, I can see your point to an extent, but as far as I'm concerned, if you can get it without putting the money into it, where's the issue?

  • RFturrican 07/08/2017

    I can see why some people are giving it the "I'm not buying it." in varying degrees of dramatic implementation, but the fact is that you don't have to buy any of it to get everything in the game.

    In my case that means as I went out of my way to 100% a brilliant game in Mordor, I'll be ploughing loads of time and effort into this one as well, and guess what?, I'll still get to access everything that those who NEED everything straight out the box will want to use real money for.

    All these people that say they're boycotting it because of this are talking out of their Orcish arse. They'll still buy it whenever it comes out, but just want to make a dramatic statement to look cool.

    Get over it.

  • PlayStation Plus price hike announced for Europe

  • RFturrican 31/07/2017

    @Grindagger FYI if you can get PS Plus for what is, in your approxiation, £9.84 for the year then go right ahead, and tell me where to sign up. Mine was just a rough average of what PS Plus would be in comparison to in the year.

    Still, each to their own, I suppose.

  • RFturrican 28/07/2017

    I didn't mind £40 for it every year because like a fair load of us, I was rocking the two main brand consoles, but when on a personal level the PS4 only really gets used for Sony only titles and doesn't get used a huge amount it becomes increasingly more difficult to justify.

    I'll have a look for cheaper ways to buy it away from Sony's own pockets, but even though the price hike makes a yearly sub the equivalent of 52p a week (less than a packet of crisps these days) it still seems a bit steep considering the lack of what you get in return.

    If they gave us an option minus the freebie games that most folk have either bought or moan about for what we pay now or a little less, I'm happy, but that isn't how business works, sadly.

  • Square Enix willing to give up Hitman rights to ensure series future

  • RFturrican 30/05/2017

    I don't know why, but I feel Hitman and Deus Ex could do worse than shift to a company like Bethesda. They would fit well in their portfolio and, more importantly, still get the love and attention they deserve, instead of being bastardized for the sake of a cheap buck.

    Fingers crossed they both get a home though. :)

  • Rejoice! Danger Zone is Burnout's Crash Mode

  • RFturrican 17/05/2017

    It sounds great to all of us Burnout fans, but if the loading times are anywhere near as chronic as Dangerous Golf was when it was released, it may actually stop me from getting it until there's a patch or a price drop...

  • Fan gets free trip to BlizzCon after finding long-lost StarCraft gold master

  • RFturrican 05/05/2017

    I can't believe there are still people that think they deserve intellectual stuff in the games industry that has never belonged to them. If it was their bottle of cola and "blinged" Iphone that someone else wanted the numbers off of they wouldn't be so upfront about being happy about it, would they?

    The disc belongs to Blizzard and they are getting it back, which is right.

  • Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare's campaign is slick, morbid and a bit dull

  • RFturrican 03/11/2016

    I just played Cack Ops III's single player campaign a few days ago and it was just so dull and uninspiring. I fear that Call of Duty: Battlestar GalCACKtica will be the same, but until I play it, I just won't know.

    I used to love this series, but Call of Duty is needing taken round the back of the barn and shot. Let it rest now, please. Either that or just release a multiplayer version of it with monthly map packs.

    I'm off to play Battlefield 1.

  • Monkey Island creator asks Disney to sell IP

  • RFturrican 24/05/2016

    As much as I'd love to see this happen, it won't. Disney are so big they can just let the licence rot in a little room somewhere (probably next to Scrooge McDuck's bunnet and the Gummi Bears' TV licence).

    If this was the Call of Duty franchise being affected this thread would be overrun with people up in arms, but unfortunately it is one that is more aimed at a lot of us more mature gamers who want to see things the way we loved them one more time.

    Personally, I'd always wanted to see a proper point and click done on something like the Wii, which Zak and Wiki did to a point back then, but literally nothing else happened. We sadly live in a world now where the big companies will do what they want and concentrate on the masses rather than give the passionate ones another trip down memory lane with some new storylines.

    I just want to point out I am a retro gaming fan and I would buy this if it did materialise, but just like some of those good Star Wars games that have now also been canned, we will never see Disney do anything with it.

    Mind you, Anthropoid Haven does have a ring to it.......

    To be honest, I'd start checking eBay for some bids mysteriously appearing from staff members, perhaps using false names and accounts to cover their ass.

    GAME will still get exclusives though, sadly.

    Perhaps they should be moved to other places.

    Why don't EA ever listen to the people that have demanded another Burnout and do away with all this "Make it like Underground" attitude.

    Hot Pursuit was the last NFS game I actually enjoyed, as the last two bored the Jordan's cruise missiles off me.

    Either give us a proper old school arcade racer or jog on, simple as that.
