  • $99 Android console Ouya Kickstarter soars over $300K in a few hours

  • Segnit 12/07/2012

    @Ilovechips Clearly you're content with the type of gaming you receive on your existing consoles.

    You're right in that the majority of the people are - with you - on the traditional console camp.

    But the fact that I struck a cord with you with the "linear, condescending, biennial/annual experiences" tells me that you understand the kind of grievience some people have with the industry today but that you probably don't share the same sentiment yourself. Again, you're probably in the majority and that's fair enough.

    @brseg Although you're not wrong, at the end of the day there is a significant portion of people out there willing to fund revolutionary but high risk concepts just because, and irrispective of the outcome.

    If some crazy entrepreneurs decide to pull off a dirty scam on us all and steal my 200 plus €uros without giving it back, well that sucks for sure. But the willingness of many to so easily part with their cash would've already instigated change in attitude.

    Look at it this way: My funding for this project is focused on helping accelerate the change away from the existing industry where linear, condescending, biennial/annual experiences are at the forefront of the cutting edge of gaming.

    Instead I want relatively fresh ideas and concepts like DayZ, Minecraft and Trackmania to have a chance of reaching their full potential. I feel that publisher and mega publisher oriented services networks such as PSN and XboxLive stifle that.

    I mean, good luck to Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo too but as this E3 demonstrated the industry needs something radically fresh and exciting. I don't if Ouya is it but I am willing to afford it the chance to become all it can be.

    I hope they keep their promise and put in me in the credits ;) I support investigating viability of this model. Soon enough I'll delve into Project C.A.R.S. by Slightly Mad Studios.

    Oh and good luck guys!

  • Minecraft jungle biome, creatures coming soon

  • Segnit 20/01/2012

    This is the news that i've been waiting for since the game came out of Beta in November last year; that they are still working on major features for the game.

    It was a no brainer (because the IP is so big) but you never know. Confirmation makes me a happy camper.

  • Dark Souls PC petition gets Namco Bandai's attention

  • Segnit 14/01/2012

    Wyrm
    @Segnit Consoles are on a decline? Ima PC fan, but the past 12 months have been something of a console golden age.
    Console sales on decline.

    skinfasst
    Segnit, your post has to be one of the msot retarded posts I've read - even on this site - for a looong time.
    I agree, I shouldn't have mentioned the American soldiers. We all make mistakes, move along.

    @JayKwon I hope they won't get burned for staying console exclusive. Games on PC's sell for years making it unlikely for the port to be a bad moved, especially in light of the fact that the console version is old news now and it's unlikely that any (or at least not many) pirates told themselves "No thanks, I'll wait for the PC version so I can pirate it".

  • Segnit 13/01/2012

    I didn't know about the petition but this is funny...

    I've never played either Souls games and yet I found myself wishing that this would come to PC only just the other day so I can pirate it :evil:

    No but serioulsy, Steam release for €20 and I'd buy it instantly. Anything over that and I'll wait for a steam discount for €15 or less 3 years from now. I'm very patient.

    As for Publishers vs. Pirates; well, choosing to ignore a platform because there are pirates to me sounds a lot like holding all Americans to the same stndards because some shitty American soldiers desecrated dead bodies on video (Ok so maybe not exactly like that..). But fuck those soldiers and i'm not too pleased about about silly publishers either shying away from the massive PC market either.

    Consoles are on a decline phase at the moment so it makes sense to use PC to offset the decline until at least Next-Gen settles to the market. People shouldn't beg for this.

    Ctrl + F "Grinding"

    What? "No match" found?

    Ok fine, before I complain let me go read the text, maybe it was mentioned somewhere that this is a grindfiesta.

    What am I saying, ofcourse it was mentioned that it's a grindfest.

  • Always Online with Blizzard

  • Segnit 02/09/2011

    I absolutely love Blizzard games and respect them as a compnay, I think they do an outstanding job with their games. I put them in the collective trio of holy devs with Nintendo and Valve.



    Fact is though, I have have no interest in online only single player games. And if I've learned one thing in this industry it's that there is so much opportunity cost for time that I can easily go without playing any Blizzard game ad infinitum.



    With my time, I have to balance work, family, friends, working out, reading books, watching films, following real life news and events, AAA games, Indie Games, and presistent hobbies such as watching sports and participating in racing simulations and minecraft.



    No game is too holy. I genuinely wish Blizzard - the path they've chosen - and their community all the best :)

  • Segnit 17/08/2011

    This guy is a nutcase for sure.



    But assuming he's right and I am the nutcase for not seeing the 'obvious' then the industry is hell bent on shrinking its market.



    Facebook-o-holics are a bane in society today. Facebook is for a bunch of egotistical twats who don't value personal privacy and promote corporate greed.

  • TrackMania 2: Canyon

  • Segnit 27/07/2011

    @Subquest



    Always on DRM is not justifiable. If I want to create a track I shouldn't need to be online. I've I'm testing out tracks I've created, I shouldn't need to be online.



    It's a problem when you're trying to play offline but an invasive DRM is trying to keep you on surely!?

  • Driver PC: always-on internet required

  • Segnit 27/07/2011

    Not a surprise but a terrible decision by the Ubisoft management all the same. I'm paranoid about Ubisoft games nowadays and thus avoid all their games.



    Oh and it needs to be said that the +/- comments system is botched. Please find a better solution Eurogamer! It works wonderfully in this thread but it's got it's down sides.

  • PES 2012 teammate controls footage

  • Segnit 21/07/2011

    Although the jury is still out on how effective and useful this feature will be but when it comes to football I want it to be as simple, easy, & intuitive as possible while looking like a real game of the sport.

    If this new feature to control two players turns out a gimmick, then my future self will come on here and complain that they are focusing too much on gimmicks rather then working on a radical overhaul. Seems like the same shit year after year.

    Oh and EG I hate your +/- comments system. It's broken and needs a change.

  • Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D

  • Segnit 20/05/2011

    I will give this game to a bunch of people who've never played it and see if it stands the test of time.



    For me though, there have been ground braking advancements in gaming in the past 13 years, with some truely amazing experiences on all platforms and all genres, but in my opinion Ocarina of Time still belongs to a seperate league all its own.

    I am bitterly disappointed that for someone like me from Cyprus, there is no upside to this shitty ordeal. When the PSN comes back up, I have no access to Son y services because Sony wont let me change my country of residence.



    My details got robbed and as a result I have to sit and watch how selected people in selected countries get bonues features as a compensation.



    Well done Sony! Well done!

  • Geohot: "PSN hack nothing to do with me"

  • Segnit 28/04/2011

    I thought that Sony's pursuit of action against Geohot taking a legal route was a mistake by Sony. I went to some of the homebrew pages out of curiosity and also to see if there was a way to turn my PS3 into a multi-region blu-ray player. And I strongly condemn Sony for pursuing for the list of IP addresses that visited those website.



    The hackers who brought down PSN cannot be condoned. At the same time I dislike and am disappointed at Sony's handling of this situation.

    Yeap Skyward Sword looked ace. But it remains to be seen if Wii's lack of hardware grunt can be compensated by innovative game design.

  • For and Against: Fanboyism

  • Segnit 25/02/2011

    Fanboyism can be good. For example I am a Eurogamer fanboy.



    There are fans then there are fanboys, after that there are reasonable fanboys.



    For instance if GAF were to butcher Eurogamer about a bad article, then a reasonable fanboy such as myself would argue that indeed "that article was bad. But hey, you know what? They are still fantastic and I still love em".



    Like, as much as I respect the work of Johnny I have to admit that his "Pro" side was very weak.

    And as much as I admire everything that Rob does, I have to admit that some of the connections he mad in the "against" argument, were gross generalizations bordering on negligence.
