  • Peter Molyneux's Godus problem

  • Rajin 01/04/2014

    Oh Peter.....

    Glad Eurogamer finally asks some good questions in regards to Molyneux, Its incredible how much crap comes out of his mouth.

    Money first, giving Call of Duty with guns is fine because then the version with guns will be so much better? Ignoring the shop he built into the early acces version to completely rip people off(no awnser to that sadly)

    What has happened to this man? Is he purposely taking the piss out of his legacy?

  • Video: Let's Replay Metal Gear Solid

  • Rajin 31/03/2014

    @myms1ps3

    I will always buy the next installments, but i fear that some of the more interesting elements of a character like snake(veteran soldier based on Rambo 1 with a trauma) are lost now. I loved the codex conversations and the only title coming close to that is MGS3(But i still can't get along with its gameplay)

    I hope that MGS5 will go back to those things, i have a small hope because the story does seem to show where and how Big boss became as radical as he was in Metal Gear 1,

  • Who is DayZ creator Dean Hall?

  • Rajin 29/03/2014

    @Bertie

    I have a lot of respect for the mod he created and how he reinvented the zombie-survival genre. What i do think however, is that you can't call that alpha he put out a game, anyone else was not allowed to get away with this but he can due the positive credit he built up with the Arma 2 mod.

    I am tired of early-access for a premium price. Its crazy that his beta will be out at the end of this year.

  • Dragon Age: Inquisition video shows off next-gen world

  • Rajin 06/03/2014

    @darc

    Well even most of the characters were shit compared to Dragon Age 1. There was the ever flirting pirate, the shemale, a timid stupid elf, a emo Fenrir and the only saving grace Varis.

    The worst part for me was the lack of impact of the choices, the different acts and the build up showed a lot of promise, but the conclusion is really bad.

    Combat was a mess like you said, can't believe that people think it was a huge improvement over Dragon Age 1(which has huge issues with aggro)

    No customization, RPG elements stripped away and replaced by some stupid armor upgrades.

    The worst thing was the recycled environments, i think i can count the different palets on one hand! It was such a rush job.

  • Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes is the best, most expensive demo ever made

  • Rajin 05/03/2014

    Played the first level of MGS so many times when i was still a kid. Problem is, i am no longer one and i can't be kept repeating the same mission over and over again. I will probaly finish this in 2 hours, and that is simply not enough for a 30 euro game. This should have been around 15-20 euro, which it might be once the second hand copies come flooding in a day after the release.

    Feel like this is done to finance the real MGSV, which probaly has gone way past its budget.

  • How The Order reinvents QTEs and the cinematic game

  • Rajin 18/02/2014

    @cloudskipa

    Well i think it was well balanced and honest, problem i usually had with your comment was a lack of balance and the insistence on Xboxone superiority in the feature articles(I remember Ryse being praised a bit too much)

    I don't even own a ps4, both consoles are lacking in real quality games and to be fair, i am sick and tied of ''cinematic'' experiences. Uncharted 3 already took away too much controll, i want to play a game and only watch cutscenes if the action is amazing or if it adds to the story, otherwise i rather play those moments myself.

  • Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy 13 review

  • Rajin 11/02/2014

    Lightning becomes a god of small things: she might be called up to herd some sheep into a pen for a farmer, or to find a distraught child's missing doll, or to fetch some accessories for a juggler girl who wants to draw a larger crowd. These routine objectives can seem trivial under the eye of the apocalyptic clock, but they humanise Lightning in a way that the previous two games failed to do. In her newfound care for the little things she grows more likeable as a protagonist, even if her steely resolve is clear in every battle in which she stands alone (or occasionally flanked by a pet Chocobo) against a multitude of terrors.

    Just no, they're fetch quests nothing more and they do not add to her character. FFX-2 quests were bad enough, but this decides to go even a step further.

    Why can't they just make meaningfull side quests? Besides that there is nothing to save about these characters, all of them are annoying empty husks.

    I pray FFXV is better because otherwise they will lose a long time fan.

  • 10 Moments That Made World of Warcraft

  • Rajin 26/01/2014

    Even though the burning crusade quests were boring, WoW for me died after TBC. I still played it actively during the Lich King, but the instances were too easy and most of the highest level area's boring.

    Too many interesting raids and bosses became obselete too fast, and i remember waiting ages for a content update after Ulduar(which i thought was a horrible raid dungeon compared to all its predecessors).

    I never understood why blizzard hardly ever made new quests(remember they made the island during TBC) but only raid instances and sometimes small instances.

    I played WoW as a solo RPG player during Cataclysm and found out that most of the community no longer valued fun and cooperative play and demanded people to know all the ins and outs of a instance. I left when i realized that due to cross servers the anomynous internet mentality slipped in, people did no longer care whether they were assholes because they could no longer be called out on it. I remember in the old days when someone was a real dick i would simply whisper him and tell him why he acted like that. Same applied to general chat and looking for group which allowed me to make my own parties and meet people i would play often with.

    Cross Servers still remain the largest nail in WoW's coffin. I did and do understand the demand for it but it removes the social element of the instances.

  • Becoming the Dark Soul

  • Rajin 19/01/2014

    While i absolutely love this game and think its the best game of this generation, it remains a flawed masterpiece. The pvp is fundamentaly flawed with little balance making it not accesible for most players, including me. Area's like blighttown and Lost Izalith are badly designed let alone tortured by framerate issues. I also did not like the ability to warp was put behind one of the hardest bosses in the game, some might argue that its the reward for fighting these two(in reality most people give up and summon someone to do the work for them)

    I love this game but after finishing demon souls i felt like this game was rushed, it only had around 1 1/2-2 years of development for a extremely ambitious game and it shows. Despite this they managed to create one of the best games of this generation. I just hope that the next installments are not rushed as dark souls was, i still feel like there is a lot of unrealised potentional(convenants being one of them, online peer system, pvp, hollow and graphics)

    Thats why i would give it a perfect score, despite finishing the game 4 times and spending 300 hours on it. Defending a game faults is not contributing towards a better game and sequel(from which i heard that they do intend to fix most of my issues but probaly with some added new ones)

    One of the best things about the game(in the not so laggy area's) is that it is fair, you die because its your fault. I also do not consider this game as difficult as some because it relies a lot more on pattern recognition then quick reflexes. Ninja Gaiden is simply more difficult on higher difficulties then a game like dark souls(also because of cheap blocks by bosses and the fairness of difficulty of Dark Souls)

It is in a way similar to the old WoW pvp Grand Marshall(there could only be 1 grand marshall with the best epic loot)

    It rubs me the wrong way that you will probaly get this guy with no life becoming this huge power.

  • Diablo 3 console review

  • Rajin 29/08/2013

    Really fun game to finish once(like the reviewer did, can't believe he actually attempted inferno for the console version or pc version)

    After you finish it once you might be pursuaded to finish it twice(nightmare) but by then, 30 hours later, you will be finished. While character switches can help this they are actually hampered by the fact that many skills unlock up till level 60(you will be around 48 by the time you finish nightmare)

    In other words, buy it for fun co-op 1 or 2 playthroughs but don't expect what i and many diablo 2 fans wanted: a game that offers you multiple years of fun.

    ''Hence why 12 had such a famously troubled development, not making any progress until the last minute, and why it feels very similar to a typical MMO game, with broken-up zones populated by the mobs that you battle in real-time, and a variety of hunting and gathering quests.''

    Not only that, but 12 was supposed to be a trilogy set in the same world, something thats easy to see if you complete the game(multiple empires not explained, like the ''spanish'' land that helps the rebellion)

    I also remember them trying to fit in the judgement system of GBA tactics(reason why there were judges to begin with in the world and why it is the same world as tactics. Basch was supposed to be the main character togheter with the princess and his twin was to be the antagonist. This was also one of the reasons why the director was fired since he refused to include useless Vaan(one of FF's worst characters of all time)

    I remember when Vaan is asked a question of why he is actually participating in this quest, he responds with : ''i am just in for the ride''.

    It is still a very good game hampered by a lack of general direction in regards to the story and world/lore. Combat is really great once you get into it and some extra bosses are real challenge. Item system is sadly horrible with the bazaar and respawns.

    But in the end i still prefer 12 to 13 and 8. The result is great considering its incredibly difficult development. The same cannot be said about 13....

    ''If you want my honest opinion I think Sony announcing opposite policies directly after Microsoft makes them look a little bit desperate, that's just my interpretation. I also don't think they look like the "good guys" (what is this???). It makes them look petty and like they're point scoring.

    They know they've lost the games war for the foreseeable future, in that respect E3 was a whitewash so these minor issues are the sort of tactics are all that's left.''


    If it was the other way around i think you would be the first in line to cheer for microsoft. It is indeed scoring easy points but it does in no way make them look desperate. If you think it is then it is strange that the constant U-turns of microsoft aren't seen in a similar light. Instead you will probaly see it as ''listening to consumer criticism''.

    And you must have a incredibly foresight and telepathic skills to know that sony knows that they have lost the ''war''.

    @Apaar
    True, imperialism was unavoidable, but the British Empire ruled 1/3th of the world and had a lot of cases where their colonies did not fare better then those of their competitors.

    My reply was more directed to people in general who seem to put british imperialism as a ''better'' alternative to the other forms of imperialism. Forgetting the fact that britain is one of the countries that laid the cornerstones for the palestine conflict and numerous civil wars in british india after their swift retreat.

    This does not mean that britain could have prevented all of this(after WW2 Britain simply did not have the means to control british india for a longer period)

    I myself am Dutch, but never do i imply that dutch imperialism was a better form of imperialism then British, French or Italian. Like memeroot said there were a lot of factors involved regarding the aftermaths of colonies contributing to their relative succes or failiure, but more often then not these did not include the fact that it was a previous British colony(excluding countries such as new zealand/Australia.

  • Rajin 05/07/2013

    I once already made a post about wow's decline and communities in general on the forum(huge one and i remember that people thought i needed to write a essay for my study:P)

    Wow got killed the moment people required no interaction with ''strangers'', cross-realm and the removal of a LFG chat/Realm-only LFG killed the community. When i was doing a instance 2 years ago during Cataclysm(played actively since launch but took a large break in between around Wrath) i was shocked at how much the community degraded to arrogant self pleasing twats. If someone did not know how to complete the instance in 20 or 30 minutes they were insulted frequently, healers were being forced to heal rogues that tried to play as a tank(blizzard in turn seemed to give them a alibi by making it possible to survive if a healer managed them like a maniac) Crowd control was a thing of the past, and in the worst case nobody even said hi to one another!

    The social interaction became something only seen in guilds(which for a time were mass recruit guilds for bonusses with little to no interaction as well).

    Another thing that killed it is that doing quests is now to easy(again removing the need for social interaction). I remember when some westfall quests were tough as nails, required you to probaly use crowd control and aggro only specific targets. The illusion of a chest containing rare loot also sparked people to crazy rushes(Chest in Stranglethorn was really interesting for a time)

    I don't even want to know how the PUG raids turn out to be, probaly even more soulless no interaction and all that.

    EVE online does seem interesting but i simply don't have the time nowadays to invest into a ship that when destroyed is possibly gone forever. The game also seems to be overly complex and the community comes off as elitists and to much hardcore as well.

  • Gears of War producer quits Epic for Mass Effect 4

  • Rajin 03/07/2013

    @Cobalt_Jackal

    I agree with most points of yours and DrStrangelove, it is also a bit down to personal preference and if you prefer more rpg or less rpg elements.

    The problem of focusing solely on team building in mass effect 2 means that the story starts to feel incoherent and detached(while some characters actually involved some nice background stories of the general politics of the galaxy Tuchaka if you let Wrex live for example).

    The one thing i think is incredibly important about a game is pacing, something i found lacking in ME2(also some corridor missions overstayed their welcome far to long)

    ''With regard to exploration that is far better than copy n paste job buildings with the same monotonous & mountainous planet terrain with the difficult to control mako repeated over and over again like in ME1(btw Dragon Age 2 did the same thing and ppl complained yet at the same time praise Mass Effect 1 for having the exact same system..i don't get it.''

    Well Dragon age 2( i game i hate to the very core because it is the pinnacle of EA greed and absurd deadlines) must not and cannot be compared in regards to copying and blandness to ME1(some of the area's were double copied from the first game(the deep tunnels). Side missions granted were very bland, but all the main quest worlds were varied and you had a nice looking hub as the citadel.

    @kaminobatto

    Ah yes the endless promises in regards to HOME. I still shake my head when i see the icon on my ps3.

    It was so simple for microsoft to convince me to go to buy a xbox instead of a ps4, most of my friends and family have moved on to the 360 and wanted to stay there. Lack of games, lack of a European vision....(thats why the article of Eurogamer about the xbox1 has a quote that baffles me, about a vision for the 360 for US centric function that will never see the light in Europe?

    There is still the E3, but the tacked on Kinect, used games problem, destruction of their once superior indie scene in comparison to Sony and US centric functions make it hard to swallow. I know for sure for example that if that premier league app is coming that it won;t be here in the Netherlands for a long time.
