  • ARG! Overwatch community fed up with Sombra teasing

  • Sildur 19/10/2016

    Overwatch is not a complete finished game by any stretch of the imagination. It's a brilliant game at its core and justifiably popular! But given that it's multiplayer only, the two game types along with the lack of maps and new content since release, it does seem as though Blizzard aren't supporting this game nearly as much as they should be.

    If I'm honest, even the Sombra ARGs were pretty boring. Intriguing to have elements hidden within corrupted images on the Overwatch website, sure, but having one new character every few months is not enough.

  • Destiny: Rise of Iron review

  • Sildur 05/10/2016

    Fair review IMO. Destiny is a 'jack of all trades, master of none' and with so many other games doing the individual parts that make up Destiny so much better, it's impossible to justify taking Destiny seriously. Crucible is a non-competitive joke and an unbalanced mess and every raid since VoG has been a boring slog.

    I paid for Rise of Iron and after a few hours in I closed the app, moved onto Overwatch and haven't touched a Destiny since. Every Destiny video in my feed is titled 'Farm' or 'Grind' and I really cannot be bothered with that anymore.

    Destiny 2 needs some serious improvements to bring me back. Screw the Destiny grind. It's a massive waste of time for no reward.

  • Destiny: Wrath of the Machine guide and walkthrough

  • Sildur 28/09/2016


    I'm finally completely done with Destiny and this DLC was the nail in the coffin for me.

    All of my friends are spending all their free time grinding the same tired old strikes to increase their light by one point at a time so that eventually they'll be able to grind the new raid for loot that everyone else has.

    Destiny is a jack of all trades, master of none, and with so many other games doing the individual elements that make up Destiny so much better I just can't tolerate this mind numbing grinding anymore.

    Crucible is an unbalanced and noncompetitive joke. I can no longer pretend like Destiny is good enough and I'm not going to reward developer Bungie for rehashing the same old piecemeal tepid content and concepts. I'm going to be sticking to Overwatch and Battlefield 1 once it's released.

    Destiny is terrible now and if you want better in Destiny 2, we need to let Bungie know that what they've done with the DLC is unacceptably poor.

  • Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare beta details revealed

  • Sildur 26/09/2016

    @Stan546 Me too! I've bought every game and every season pass despite all their nonsense, but i didn't buy the BO3 season pass after I saw them selling weapons in supply drops. I genuinely think CoD are great fun, but I'm done with them now.

    Far better games coming out - namely Battlefield 1, which looks incredible.

  • Sildur 26/09/2016

    Seriously, if anyone buys Call of Duty this year after all of the nonsense they pulled with pay-to-win weapons only available via pachinko-gambling supply-drops in BO3, then this gaming community is lost.

    Call of Duty needs to be punished to let them know that what they're doing psychologically tricking children into gambling away their money for items that should have been in the game already is unbelievably unacceptable.

  • Sildur 22/09/2016

    Loved this game when it came out and had a lot of fun experiences, but their DLC - even the free stuff - was piss-poor. I even paid for the season pass and barely played any of it.

    The Dark Zone could have been immense but they screwed it up with lack of support.

  • Sony announces PlayStation 4 Pro for November 2016, priced £349

  • Sildur 08/09/2016

    Well, I may be massively in the minority here, but I'm looking forward to the PS4 Pro. It's a more than decent price point and will improve the quality of VR with Morpheus.

    I used to be into hardcore PC gaming, taking my rig to the Insomnia lan events and playing all weekend. But I simply prefer sitting back in my chair with my controller, chilling and playing with friends these days. Rather than being hunched over a keyboard and mouse for hours listening to people swear at each other because they're taking video games far too seriously.

    I would absolutely consider myself to be a hardcore technology enthusiast and I simply prefer console gaming for fun than PC gaming.

    Can't wait for this to come out! :D

  • Battlefield 4 just got a huge makeover on console

  • Sildur 26/08/2016

    Have we forgotten just how broken and buggy BF4 was for its first year??

    I'm more excited about Battlefield 1 than anyone but I'm still worried about what state it will be in on release given their recent track record.

    EA/DICE need to not mess this up.

  • Rocket League, Gwent "ready" for PS4 Xbox One cross-network play

  • Sildur 22/07/2016

    Morally, Sony should do this. Business-wise, they shouldn't.

    You can guarantee that if the shoe was on the other foot, Microsoft wouldn't even consider doing this and no one would bat an eyelid, respecting that they were doing it for business reasons.

    Don't forget all of the anti-consumer things Microsoft had in place when they announced the Xbone before Sony came along and said "That's anti-consumer and we're not going to do any of that shit."

    Microsoft are not good guys - they're just using this as an opportunity to both have a go at Sony and get more players on their network.

  • Despite its problems, Battlefield 4 remains one of this generation's best shooters

  • Sildur 12/06/2016

    I loved BF4 when it was first released but the bugs made it unplayable so I sold it again.

    I picked it up again recently and it just seemed unbelievably dated to me. Most likely because it was also made for the last generation of consoles. Couldn't get into it.

  • Apple iPhone sales fall for the first time ever

  • Sildur 27/04/2016

    Still haven't upgraded from my 4S which I bought 5 years ago. Mainly because I usually do my upgrades all at once and Apple are so slow to upgrade their iMacs/Macbooks and the upgrades are so meager these days that I've had no reason to do it.

    Luckily, I flat-out refuse to upgrade the OS on my 2011 iPhone, iPad, Macbook & iMac due to Apple's notable history of introducing OS updates that destroy their old products and because of that they're still all running extremely well.

    This will be the year I upgrade everything IF the iPhone 7 and Macbook/iMac upgrades are decent enough. Screw the Apple watch though. That thing is ridiculously ugly & pointless and the competition have made far more attractive ones.

  • Destiny April update release date, Prison of Elders refreshed

  • Sildur 24/03/2016

    @TolandsRancour This DLC is "free" specifically because we were told that microtransaction items would pay for future DLC, so all players could play the DLC content, rather than only those who purchased the DLC.

    I was more than happy to contribute to the community by spending money on microtransactions, but this meager offering is nowhere near what we were promised for them locking away content within microtransactions.

    Looks like me and my Destiny crew will be playing The Division from now on - we're loving it!!! :D

  • So, will Sony actually allow PS4 and Xbox One owners to play together?

  • Sildur 17/03/2016


    "@Sildur You really are quite stupid, aren't you." Ah the opening gambit of a person with zero intellectual ammunition to contribute to a conversation.

    I don't believe ALL Xbox One gamers are ignorant, racist, angry gamers and certainly wouldn't judge someone for owning an Xbox One. After all, some of my best friends are XboxOne gamers. ( ;) ) However, I don't want the Xbox Live gamers who are inclined to behave that way to have access to the PSN platform.

    "Listing life achievements online is kind of a mugs game. No one cares and i have nothing related to this discussion." Then why did you bring up your job and why are you talking about this? And I assume you meant to say "and it is not related to this discussion." rather than "i have nothing related to this discussion.".

    Bringing up your job title, or indeed saying anything about your 'life achievements' is about as believable as this:

    "What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? Iíll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and Iíve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and Iím the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. Youíre fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and thatís just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little ďcleverĒ comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldnít, you didnít, and now youíre paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. Youíre fucking dead, kiddo."

    Why would you give two shits about what I - some rando from the Internet - thinks about you? Make a statement of value and move on or get back in your box and be quiet. Personal attacks are a waste of everyone's time.

    @Rodimus-Prime You're a better human being because you don't do something? Yes, that's what makes a better human being: inaction.

    "I'm a self-employed Private Investigator in the real world, but I don't feel the need discuss that." lol! You just did open it up for discussion and in doing so, you opened up the rather obvious question: are you self employed because no company would hire you? Are you a private investigator because you can selfishly work the hours you choose and spend the rest of the time gaming and talking crap on rather than contributing something more meaningful to humanity?

    You don't actually do anything for anyone but yourself, do you? Tell me I'm wrong.

    @Rodimus-Prime I'm basically the only person branding Xbox gamers as 'Trump supporters', 'racists' or 'bigots', so you can aim that squarely at me.

    You may well be a better human being than me, but I'd be interested to know what exactly makes you think that? Other than "I have white skin and I feel bad when I see a puppy that's been abused." of course.

    What do you actually do on a day-to-day basis that makes you a good human being? What do you do for humanity, or your fellow being, or even just for your friends and family that makes you better than anyone here?

    I'm always fascinated by people who think they're wonderful just because they exist and feel sad when people are abused.

    Get up and do something that actually shows you're a good human being. Don't just chat shit when you do sweet FA for anyone but yourself and your KD in Call of Duty.

    @frazzl 'unsubstantiated'?? My opinion is based on my extensive experience playing on Xbox Live. You are more than welcome to disagree, I hope you do and I hope that you're right and that I'm wrong!

    I'm actually the nicest, most helpful, sweetest guy on the planet outside of my anonymous username here on Eurogamer. I'm happy to appear in whatever negative way you perceive me to be here, but I'm also going to tell some home truths to Xbox Live gamers as, frankly, they have a very negative reputation with gamers around the world and they need to sort their sh*t out.

    If it switches in the future and PSN gamers become the negative, racist morons, I'll be happy to switch back to Xbox Live.

    Hate me as much as you want, but I'm telling the truth and everyone knows it.

    Let's all face the truth here gentlemen: the Xbox One was announced with less powerful specs than the PS4. At the same time Microsoft also announced a number of anti-consumer, anti-gamer policies that would screw over all us gamers by ultimately making games more expensive, more difficult to sell, more difficult to buy second-hand and more difficult to share with our friends, which, thanks to Sony, they were forced to back-track on.

    So if even after all that you still bought an Xbox One, then you're probably a die-hard Microsoft fanboy who loves that it comes from the good ol' U.S. of A. and I'd wager you're the same type of uninformed, blind, ignorant, bigoted, white-power, racist moron who would vote for Donald Trump. You're probably also someone who wraps up their entire sense of self-worth in your KD in Call of Duty/[insert any other FPS here].

    Sony aren't perfect - forget Sony if they ever do anything to screw over us gamers. But until then I'd still much rather play with PSN gamers than Xbox Live ones.

    @SwissTony1994 Zero irony there whatsoever. Firstly, sure - PS4 gamers enjoy Call of Duty - as do I, but I'm not going to be shouting about N-words down the microphone while playing it, as I've experienced countless times on Xbox Live.

    Also, if you look at the percentage of Xbox gamers who buy Call of Duty, compared to the percentage of PS4 gamers who do, then you'll see PS4 gamers prefer a wider variety of game genres and Xbox gamers buy a few titles a year, mainly Fifa, Halo and Call of Duty.

    Honestly... As a PS4 gamer I don't want to play with no-lifer XboxOne gamers who's entire sense of self-worth is built upon their KD in Call of Duty.

    I've much preferred the crowd on PS4 since I switched from Xbox 360, as PSN gamers tend to be less racist, less shouty, more chilled and I'd prefer to keep playing with them then invite the rabble in from Xbox One.

    I feel like Xbox One gamers represent Donald Trump supporters and PS4 gamers represent all the other reasonable people on the planet who are NOT complete c*nts.

  • Sildur 10/03/2016

    Okay, so judging by the responses to me posting Jim Sterling's early review, I'm guessing this is a pretty polarizing game.

    It seems as though the people who've actually played it here are absolutely loving it and the people who haven't played it are pretty blasť about it based on the initial reviews so far.

    So I dunno... I'm going to wait for the full reviews to come out before investing in this. It seems like 100% the type of game I'd love, but the bullet-sponge same enemies do look pretty boring.

    Okay, having played through the game for the whole of last night - single player and mostly multiplayer... This reviewer Jon Denton must have been on crack when he wrote his review.

    I completely respect that reviewers often don't have a lot of time to play a game and then write their reviews, but he's completely neglected to mention some of the best elements of this game and his complaints seem unbelievably petty.

    The price is literally double that of the first one, but there is also a lot more content. We'll see after I've played it whether I think it's worth it or not. :)

  • How do our gaming habits change as we grow up?

  • Sildur 11/02/2016

    I still love competitive games, but I'm finally losing tolerance for the way that developers are using psychological tricks to get children to spend their parents money on essentially gambling for a chance to get some DLC that either used to come in the core game or would come in the season pass (Black Ops 3 Supply Drops).

    For the first time in six years I've not bought the Call of Duty Season Pass and I'm so glad I didn't because they did exactly what they said they wouldn't: bring weapons in DLC. And twatty YouTubers are spending hundreds of dollars on supply drops to get them. :)

    Other than that, my gaming habits have pretty much remained the same. Although this could simply say a lot about my general level of maturity (or lack thereof) and my refusal to grow up. As a 34 year old man with a wife and a job I still play Video Games far more than I should (but then again, so does my wife!). ;)

  • Hardware: Rivals review

  • Sildur 07/01/2016

    If there were about twenty people in a chaotic match this game could at the very least be mildly entertaining. As it stands though, the maps are too large and the player limit too small for this game to be anything but a throw-away free title.

    We still go back to Rocket League all the time and with BO3, Battlefield, Battlefront and Destiny, there's simply no room for anything that's not up to par, and Hardware Rivals is a missed opportunity for a potentially great game. The gameplay is simply not optimised enough, the engagements not exciting and ultimately it gets boring fast.

    Amazing the number of vocal grumpy Xbone owners here to rain on the PS4's parade.

    Really glad the Xbone is here - it's important to have competition to keep Sony in check. However, it's just as important to remember the real the reasons for the success of the PS4. It's down to Microsoft trying really hard to screw over gamers before launch, and then the PS4 launched with more powerful, cheaper hardware, so it's as simple as that. Then once the PS4 gained traction and gamers wanted to play with their friends, they sold more and more.

    We're all gamers here and that's all that should matter. The moment Sony tries to screw over us gamers I will be the first to jump ship. F**k loyalty to companies as big as Microsoft and Sony. This is my recreational spare time and money, and I'm not spending any of it on a company if they make any attempts to screw us over.

  • GAME blames low last-gen sales for pre-Christmas slump

  • Sildur 23/12/2015

    GAME continue to rely on the ignorance of parents who will go straight to their store and pay a premium rather than look around for better deals.

    Well maybe that's finally changed and kids are informing their parents of better places to buy games.

    When Fallout 4 is £59 from GAME and £39 from Amazon - at release - it's not surprising people prefer to buy elsewhere. And as the video gaming generation gets older, GAME will no longer be able to rely on fleecing non-gaming parents as most parents are now gamers themselves.

    Competition is good and GAME need to step up their game (pun intended!) in order to compete.
