  • 'Sorry about Christmas' PSN discount rolls out Friday

  • Sildur 20/01/2015

    By giving us a 10% discount that we only have 3 days to use aren't they essentially giving themselves free money? :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.

    This is genuinely a lot more fun than it looks. :D Played it throughout the summer and even managed to get a Legendary card even though I spent zero money on the app. :D

    Blizzard do F2P right.

  • 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

  • Video: Can Dying Light make up for Dead Island?

  • Sildur 16/12/2014

    This was our big surprise game at this years Eurogamer Expo. Absolutely loved it!

    Seems like a really fun take on the zombie survival game with the weapons you can construct and the missions you get. Can't wait till this comes out!

  • 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

  • Sildur 01/12/2014

  • Destiny will be down for maintenance tomorrow

  • Sildur 12/11/2014

    @evi1ROBOT Yep. I've bought a few games since and I always go back to Destiny because it's epic.

    Lots of improvements should be made but it's still awesome. :)

  • 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!

  • Face-Off: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

  • Sildur 07/11/2014

    @icantremember I believe, like Destiny, they're taking their time to review it properly on the live servers.

    And given how truly crap the net code is in this game, I'm very glad they are.

  • Sildur 07/11/2014

    Something's happened to me guys... I just can't get into this CoD.

    I fully recognise that it's a vast improvement over Ghosts but having played so many Call of Duty games I can't help feeling that I've done it a million times before as I play through AW.

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

  • Advanced Warfare is the finest Call of Duty in years

  • Sildur 03/11/2014

    I really like this new Eurogamer theme of waiting to review the games on live servers. It makes the reviews much more trustworthy rather than us getting games like GTAV that, while excellent, was thoroughly and completely broken when it launched. :) Reply 0
  • Here's what's in Destiny's The Dark Below expansion

  • Sildur 29/10/2014

    Okay I've enjoyed Destiny so far... a lot... and I've been very vocal about that fact.

    But just so I'm right in what we're getting here:

    3 Story missions (more defend Dinklebot? would they dare?)
    3 Multiplayer Maps
    2 Strikes (1 if you're on Xbox)
    1 Raid

    For £20 which is essentially just under half the price of the game?

    No, just no... F*** you, Bungie.

    Oh well - plenty of other great games to play! Far Cry 4 soon!

  • Bungie promises power matters in Destiny's new and improved Iron Banner

  • Sildur 27/10/2014

    Still loving Destiny and playing it with everyone on my friends list! :D

    I hope this new Iron Banner is well-tested and working as suggested this time though. :)

    I heard rumors of a new crucible event where you only get invited to take part after winning a number of matches consecutively and the rewards are exotic. Not sure when it's coming though.

  • Destiny launch almost triples monthly US PlayStation 4 sales

  • Sildur 17/10/2014

    Still loving Destiny but everyone's right about the nonsensical story.

    Some truly flawless gameplay mechanics in there but without a compelling (and understandable) plot it's far from a perfect game. Plus those 'protect Dinklebot' missions are tiresome too. :) Hopefully they'll fix some of these major flaws come the December DLC.

  • E3 organiser and trade group ESA speaks out against GamerGate

    Well done Eurogamer. Another 800 comment article that has nothing to do with video games and the corresponding ad-revenue you'll accrue is heading your way today!

    Better send in MrTomFTW so he can troll and antagonize everyone into posting more comments!

    I notice you've pulled all of the moderators out to collectively down-vote any comments that are negative towards Eurogamer.

    This site has gone so far downhill it's really sad and pathetic what it's become.

  • Anita Sarkeesian cancels university speech following school shooting threat

  • Sildur 15/10/2014

    @MrTomFTW You're in extra-antagonizing mode today aren't you? :)

    I'm guessing the hits on this one story will count for 90% of Eurogamer's advertising revenue this month.

  • Sildur 15/10/2014

    It is genuinely disgusting that people make threats like this.

    With that said, Anita Sarkeesian is still an abysmal 'journalist' who takes aspects of video games completely out of context in order to further her cause and add to the hundreds of thousands of dollars she‘s already earned by suggesting that all male gamers as misogynistic pricks who can't help but sexually-assault and torture every female character they come across in video games.

    If she submitted her videos as a university dissertation she would fail miserably for outright lying in her research. But no one can touch her because anyone who makes the slightest hint of suggesting that they disagree with what she's saying will be lambasted as a misogynistic as***le.

    Her videos don't even get that many hits, the only time she comes up in any conversation is when sites such as Eurogamer post about her to get click-bait hits and it works every time.

    Finally: There IS sexism in video games, movies, advertising... No one is saying there isn't. All I'm saying is Anita Sarkeesian is useless at reporting on it in a factual way and her ‘evidence‘ is always taken out of context and incorrect.

  • Bungie discussing matchmaking for Destiny's Raid

  • Sildur 06/10/2014

    @Faramis is 100% right. I did the raid with a bunch of friends and it was great. I got asked to do it with a bunch of American guys I didn't know - two of whom were seriously stoned - and it was... much more difficult. :)

    I think the way it is now is perfect and matchmaking for the raid really would lead to rages and people quitting mid-raid.

    @mooseti You shouldn't have to say you're sorry for enjoying Destiny.

    Some people need to be told what to think so they've probably already decided the game is crap and sold it after they saw the 6/10 reviews. :)

    There are also a fantastic amount of butt-hurt PC gamers (I'm a PC gamer too, so don't start) who are upset that Destiny isn't on their platform so they're trolling everything that mentions Destiny on the internet.

    Looking through these comments I'm truly amazed by the people who are getting a few negs for simply saying they like the game. It's their opinion and they're not insisting you like it too.

    If you don't like it, that's absolutely fine! No one is forcing you to like it, go play something you like then. :D

    I absolutely love Destiny. Just last night I unlocked an 'Exotic Weapon Bounty' which takes me through a massive quest chain to grab parts from downed bosses to build the weapon.

    This game is astounding - it has its faults, don't get me wrong. But I'm absolutely loving it. :)

  • Destiny UK's biggest new IP launch ever

  • Sildur 15/09/2014

    @raheell9 Fair enough. I will never trust Polygon reviews for a second. Those guys are complete jokester hipsters and couldn't write a review if their lives depended on it. Their reviews read like they're re-typing the press release while just changing a few words and then they whack a score on at the end without explaining why. :D Reply +1
  • Sildur 15/09/2014

    Anyone down-voting someone who expresses the opinion that they enjoy and are having fun in the game should grow up. :) It's just their opinion that they happen to enjoy the game, not that you have to enjoy it too.

    I'm absolutely loving the game! Had a blast playing it so far and will most likely be playing this for years to come. :D

  • Here's a video of Destiny's exclusive PlayStation map

  • Sildur 03/09/2014

    It does actually look like they took the ugliest map in the game and said 'PlayStation can have this one'. The maps in the beta were a lot more interesting.

    As a PS4 owner, I'm not the slightest bothered. I don't think XboxOne owners are missing too much by not having these extras. As for the exclusive gear... Destiny is about earning loot, not being given it. No one's gonna wear that stuff proudly.

    This is more than fair enough... But when the vast majority of people I've seen on Eurogamer are trying to have perfectly civil conversations on these matters, and are being labelled as misogynistic morons for doing so, you have to believe that it is an extreme minority of gamers who are threatening or harassing developers and game journalists.

    Regardless, threats of violence towards anyone is pathetic and cowardly, but it shouldn't eclipse intelligent debate.

    @rubthisway I didn't "leg it" at all - I continued talking to other people and ignored you in the process. You're clearly a psychopath because you've almost exclusively received negs to every single post you've made in this thread yet you're still here, half a day later, posting every few minutes. :)

    @MrTomFTW I appreciate your perspective but it's a very fine line. Where exactly did you read that she was ashamed of this? Or are you just assuming on her behalf? That's a little dangerous isn't it? You've painted Zoe as a victim for you to protect - don't be a blind white knight.

    From my perspective, taking sexism completely out of it, what shows deceitfulness is when Zoe behaves the victim and suggests that the nude photos of her that are being posted of her were private. They're not, they're in the public domain so people are going to post them.

    Again, you lack the ability to see anyone who disagrees with Zoe Quinn as anything but a sexist misogynist.

    As a man who grew up in a house with three incredible, smart, intelligent strong women who have never behaved as victims in their lives, and living with my smart, incredible, strong fiancé now, I'd wager they'd all call you a moron for suggesting I'm in the slightest bit misogynistic.

    I think you need to spend more time around women to understand that they are anything but weak victims and they're in fact strong enough to not need you to speak on their behalf.
