  • An hour with Randy Pitchford

  • Sildur 24/07/2015

    I've met men like Randy so often in my career. He's a complete nightmare to deal with, so I feel bad for Wes for having to interview him.

    Here's the thing: people like Randy will, unfortunately, always get away with failing spectacularly because they will never admit any personal fault.

    The only thing we as consumers can do is not buy any of his products and hope he disappears into obscurity as quickly as possible.

    @difiasco I think you're the one who needs to look it up mate, seeing as you clearly haven't the slightest clue what it means. Please do explain exactly what I've said that is hypocritical or we'll be forced to conclude that you're just making extremely moronic attempts to sidestep giving a proper response. :D Although I already made a similar conclusion about you already. ;) Reply +1

    @difiasco The fact that you find it so hard to believe that anyone could run a company and take one minute out of their working day to post a comment suggests to me that you're either unemployed or in a unfulfilling job that somehow demands 110% of your attention at all times. I'm sorry and I hope things get better for you, buddy. :) Reply +1

    @difiasco Hahaha! Oh yes please! No offense, but there are more than a couple of man-children here who have far too much time on their hands. As much as I'd love to have them terrorizing my colleagues/our clients, I'm not sure that's such a great idea. The very fact that you'd even ask is absurd.

    I tell you what: you tell us exactly where you work and give us the contact details, and I'll give you my company's details. :D

    @difiasco Other than my own successful company I've been running for the last 7 years? Nothing mate. :) Well done on essentially repeating Archang3ll's comment by the way.

    And as others have stated here: Chris' games have always been lacking in one way or another. This was too ambitious and he's definitely not the right guy to get such an ambitious project off the ground.

    @Archang3ll Fair enough point really, you're right, I've never made a game. And naw I wouldn't complain about anything in your fantasy land - I'd love it. I'm normally the one who is annoyingly positive about things, but this project smacked of failure to me from the start. I REALLY hope I'm wrong in the long-run and it turns out to be something awesome, but I sincerely doubt that'll be the case.

    @darrendawson Yep - it's a damn shame.

    It's really shitty when a negative person is right when they predict doom and gloom for a potentially game-changing project, but this time I'm that shitty person. I said it shortly after the Kickstarter: Chris employed a bunch of family and friends to work on this and there's been nothing but delays since the beginning. You should never work with family and friends because it's harder to say "Stop slacking and get this done!!!" so instead he's clearly just stuck waiting for people to get things done in their own sweet time.

    Many of the faux adverts and trailers have been absolutely stunning, but gameplay features are sorely lacking. Chris has, unfortunately, shown that he hasn't got a clue how to run a project. A brilliant man with brilliant vision, no doubt, but neither he or his brother know how to push this game forward to completion.

    If you backed this project, I would love to visit the cloud cuckoo fairy land that you live in inside your head as I'm sure it's a fantastical, naive, innocent and wondrous place indeed.

  • The Taken King is the expansion Destiny has been waiting for

  • Sildur 01/07/2015

    I love Destiny and will buy this, but everyone is right in saying the straight conversion from dollars to pounds is unjustifiable.

    Still, I'm so glad I stuck with this game while so many gamers ditched it as I've had more fun and spent more time playing this game with my friends than any game in the last decade.

    People are seriously missing out on a lot of the awesome mechanics and fun battles to be had in Destiny. :D

  • The Last Guardian emerges from hibernation, unchanged

  • Sildur 17/06/2015

    The Last Guardian is getting dangerously close to the vapourware status of Duke Nukem Forever. Will it ever actually be released?

    But hey, at least Duke Nukem Forever was eventually released and was awesome, AMIRITE!?!? :D

    ... Oh wait.

    I still love PvZ:GW on PS4. It's a really stunning game and a brilliant example of what the Frostbite engine can do (seriously!). So much fun. I'd still recommend it and I got all my friends playing it.

    Can't wait for PvZ:GW2 - hope it's not timed Xbox exclusive to start with but looks like it will be again. :)

    This game is awesome and definitely deserves an 'Essential' especially if Nintendo continue to support it in the ways they have been so far.

  • Splatoon adds Port Mackerel map and new modes

  • Sildur 02/06/2015

    Loving Splatoon so much more than I thought I would!

    Was concerned I would get bored quickly after playing the Global Testfires, but it's a true classic!

    Buy a Wii-U, get Super Mario 3D World, Mario Kart 8, Super Mash Bros, Bayonetta and Splatoon and I GUARANTEE you'll have the most fun you've had gaming in the last decade. :D

  • Xbox One UK price now 299.99

  • Sildur 13/04/2015

    It's a great move! Reducing the price is always great for us consumers.

    Had Bloodborne not come out I may have regretted getting a PS4 but that game is such a stunning gaming experience I've stopped playing any other game altogether. :D

    I still can't forgive MS for their original plans to royally screw over the consumer though so there would have to be a very good reason for me to buy an Xbone at over 200. :)

  • Dead or Alive 5 tournament soft ban on "over-sexualised" costumes sparks heated debate

  • Sildur 02/03/2015

    Dead or Alive is what it is and it always has been about bouncing boobs since the Sega Saturn days when it was first released in 1996.

    If an organiser wants to feature DoA in their tournament and censor the partial nudity in it that's fine, but it does seem like they're kidding themselves a bit. If you don't want soft-core nudity then there are plenty of other wonderful beat-em-ups to choose from. Although almost all beat-em-ups have some level of soft-core nudity and over-sexualisation of women, just not to the extent of the DoA series - but hey - at least DoA is honest and straight-forward about it - they like bouncing boobs!

    Still playing and loving Destiny with everyone on my PSN list. :)

    I may be one of only a few but it seems as popular as ever to me. It's become as popular to bash Destiny as it is to bash Call of Duty. :D

    I'm sorry, I know it's just a game but this was just a kid trying to have fun with someone he trusted.

  • Sildur 11/02/2015

    It took me a while to get into Hardline: Battlefield without jets and tanks? What's the point?

    But the more I played it the more and more I enjoyed it. It's an acquired taste but one that really grows on you. My favourite DLC in BF3 was the close-quarters pack and this is more of that injected with steroids and a good dollop of humor.

    Really quite looking forward to this actually. :)

  • The God who Peter Molyneux forgot

  • Sildur 11/02/2015

    Amazing story and I do feel really bad for Bryan.

    After all of the ridiculous claims and bravado and even the $50,000 Diamond Chisel... It has to be said that Curiosity and Godus have to be the most embarrassing failures Molyneux has come up with so far.

    I seriously believe Molyneux should be held accountable for Curiosity and Godus... It was a kickstarted game that completely shafted the backers, immediately went Free-To-Play (the worst kind of F2P at that) and in the process of promoting it with Curiosity they completely shafted the winner. Molyneux even slagged off EA's Dungeon Keeper app for using the exact same tactics he went on to use in Godus!

    He's a total and utter c**t isn't he!?!?

    He's taken the Kickstarter Backer's money, and the money of anyone silly enough to pay real money for items in Godus and basically failed to deliver on any level whatsoever. We need new laws to stop knobs like this from ripping people off.

  • Destiny has more than 16 million registered users

  • Sildur 06/02/2015

    I may be the only one still enjoying Destiny on Eurogamer, but myself and everyone on my friends list are still loving it. :D

    I bought Dying Light and I've hardly played it. I've been really trying to get into Hardline and it's interesting but not as great. I've got the season pass for Advanced Warfare and every time I load it up I stop playing after a single match...

    Just still having a lot of fun in the many aspects of Destiny: strikes, raids, crucible, free-roam and even the tower. :D

    If you're playing Destiny with a good group of friends then it's endless amounts of fun. :D

    10% won't even cover the rip-off prices they charge over retail. :D

  • Xbox One Evolve pre-purchase unlocks characters you'd otherwise have to grind for

  • Sildur 12/01/2015

    This honestly makes me think that the content in this game must be extremely boring if this is all they could come up with as a pre-order bonus.

    I love the idea of Evolve and it looks fantastic, but I'd also imagine it could get extremely samey very fast if there's little content to unlock as you play the game... In the exact same way a huge chunk of people stopped playing Titanfall a month after release because there was little to unlock so you were just playing the same maps over and over again for zero reward.

    I really hope there's more to this game.

  • Destiny has had just shy of 13 million players

  • Sildur 23/12/2014

    Even I'm bored with Destiny. In fact I'm bored of most of the first-person shooters I have. I've bought CoDAW, Destiny, GTAV and Far Cry 4 (which is, admitedly, absolutely amazing) in the last few months and honestly I'd much rather play Plants VS Zombies Garden Warfare at the moment.

    Bloodborne cannot come soon enough. Seriously need something different to play. May even pick up Dragon Age this Christmas.

  • Student-made Ukip parody game upsets Nigel Farage

  • Sildur 22/12/2014

    UKIP are morons capitalising on the petty fears of clueless members of the squeezed middle and lower classes. Those with a brain know that immigrants have nothing whatsoever to do with how screwed over the middle and lower classes have been for the last decade and everything to do with the rich profiting from our pain. There's plenty of money to go around - it's just all being horded by the rich, so stop blaming immigrants and vote the conservatives out of power. Reply +10

  • Which is the better media player? PlayStation 4 and Xbox One revisited

  • Sildur 14/12/2014

    Myself and the guys I know who own a PS4 are definitely feeling that general lack of momentum that seems to always be there with Sony, and we see how Microsoft has been doing a far better job communicating with the community and updating the XboxOne software.

    PSN is still a horrific experience with extremely slow online services. It's really time for Sony to wake up and start engaging their community in the way Microsoft have been.

  • Destiny: How to get to level 32

  • Sildur 12/12/2014

    Still love playing this game with all my mates on PS4.

    However we've become quite cynical about the future of Destiny since they announced the ten year plan now includes a sequel in 'Destiny 2' which is definitely not the way the ten-year-plan was sold to us. Given the bad press Destiny initially received it seems logical that they may hold back the coolest features that were originally intended to be implemented into Destiny, to implement them into the sequel instead... Which would be a shame. :)

    I'm most likely wrong though. I hope I am and that there's a lot more cool stuff to come for Destiny though.

  • Xbox One overtakes PS4 sales for November in UK and US

  • Sildur 12/12/2014

    @TheLastPixel Without getting the actual number of sales during the Black Friday we can't really comment, but that seems like the most logical conclusion.

    @Lepanto The deals for XboxOne were dramatically cheaper than the deals for PS4. Microsoft is just trying to get consoles in the hands of gamers. :)

    I'm glad XboxOne sold a load of consoles! Healthy competition is great! But I would still much rather have the future of gaming in Sony's hands than Microsoft who have shown clearly what they think of gamers when they first announced the XboxOne and all of the features that would screw gamers over.

  • Sildur 12/12/2014

    Xbox selling more consoles is purely down to the massive black-Friday price cuts it received. It's still great! But it's only because they slashed the price of the console dramatically to get some sales in. :) Reply -4

  • Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare review

  • Sildur 10/11/2014

    Been playing this all week and it's just begun to click with me. I'm enjoying it, but not as much as Destiny.

    It's still a horrifically standard Call Of Duty even with the so-called innovations with the exo-suit. I feel like I've played every map before in the series. The netcode is unbelievably poor for a multiplayer game. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone - even hardcore CoD fans as it's no different to the rest. But I'm enjoying bashing out some multiplayer for now.

    Good on ya Dan - great review!

    I really don't understand the high scores this is getting.
