  • Video: A quick look at co-op customisation in Assassin's Creed Unity

  • Sildur 01/09/2014

    Companies such as Ubisoft, EA and Activision double-dipping our wallets constantly is beyond old by now. I genuinely loved some of the Assassin's Creed games but I'm not touching this with a ten-foot-barge-pole.

    Was really looking forward to it too. :(

  • Why we need more developers like Zoe Quinn

  • Sildur 30/08/2014

    @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. :)

    You have a massive ego to still be posting here like you think everything you're saying is right despite the humongous number of negs you're receiving.

    @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.

  • Sildur 30/08/2014

    @MrTomFTW It seems like you're just intentionally misunderstanding my comments and labeling me as a misogynist.

    I didn't say posting her nudes WASN'T slut shaming, I said my response had nothing to do with slut-shaming. It's about her credibility and deceitfulness. How is this not clear? Again, it seems like you're intentionally misunderstanding my response and labeling anyone who disagrees with Ms Quinn as a misogynist - a serious problem with some white-knight men at the moment. Labeling all men who disagree with Anita Sarkeesian or Zoe Quinn misogynists is pathetic.

    Clearly you didn't follow the TFYC story and if you're telling me they said she had nothing to do with it because of their final post on the matter then you seriously lack the ability to read between the lines my friend. She had EVERYTHING to do with it and was the sole antagonist but they got so sick of the negative PR and personal attacks they did whatever they could do end the conversation - understandable.

    The game was green-lit because people found it interesting? Again, if you say so, but judging by the initial response no one liked it very much at all.

    @MrTomFTW
    1. No, she received negativity for posting a crap game that was mysteriously green-lit regardless of its crapness which has been a trend on Steam lately and the community is sick of it.
    2. You've missed the point completely. It's not REMOTELY about slut-shaming, it's about her deceit in complaining about photos of her nude being posted online as though she's had her personal phone hacked when she chose to pose nude for Suicide Girls and have them displayed on the Internet for the world to see.
    3. No she didn't "Just post an opinion" she didn't understand the intentions of the company so she called on her followers to attack the company. Do you even know about this story??
    4. If you say so. :)

  • Sildur 30/08/2014

    @Widge Thanks for your response Widge. :)

    1. It's a fair enough point - the controversy surrounding the game is huge. However, the reviews on steam before this all blew up were almost exclusively negative about the game.
    2. Not remotely irrelevant it goes towards credibility, bias and hypocritical deceitfulness. She whines about people posting nude photos of her online like they hacked her personal phone, but they haven't - she chose to pose nude for Suicide Girls and have them publicly displayed on the internet.
    3. Just look at what she did to the Fine Young Capitalists - slamming a small not-for-profit charity organisation that's just trying to do good.
    4. No real opinion? It seems to be an opinion shared by the majority of the people in this thread!

    Thank YOU for playing.

    @TarickStonefire Why so hateful and aggressive? I notice you still haven't taken a second to explain how you think my first points were 'bullshit' by the way.

    @WoodyG Agreed! @TarickStonefir, calling everyone who disagrees with Zoe Quinn and the titling of this article misogynistic is completely wrong.

    None of us are being sexist in these comments, what we're saying is we dislike blatant clickbait.

    Clickbait is clickbait.

    1. Depression Quest has been completely slammed by the Steam community as being an incomplete and terrible game.
    2. Zoe Quinn is a woman who has posed many times nude for Suicide Girls and then cries fowl when people post those publicly-available photos of her on Twitter.
    3. She is manipulative and deceitful not only to everyone around her, but everyone she meets on the Internet it seems.
    4. This type of click-bait shoddy journalism should be below you, Dan. " Why we need more developers like Zoe Quinn"?? Please man come on.

  • Leading creators back latest Tropes vs Women video

  • Sildur 28/08/2014

    Says Joss Whedon, riding in on the feminist bandwagon, who does the Avengers movies with Scarlett Johansson dressed in unnecessarily tight leather for the duration of the film. Or the courtesan he put into Firefly or Serenity. Or the female lead character in Dollhouse? A man who has made his career sexualising women should not be such a ridiculous hypocrite.

    Honestly, Tom, this whole thing is taken too far and this woman is making a lot of money by overstating her points at every turn.

    I await a barrage of negs, but I'm really looking forward to this Call of Duty after the shite-fest that was Ghosts.

    It's looking promising and will hopefully be a lot of fun! Still - a Call of Duty console? Eaw!

    There are always people who want to complain about popular games. :)

    I'm stuck in-between my friends, colleagues and family who love Call of Duty and those who prefer more serious military shooters like Battlefield.

    I love that games like Assassin's Creed and Call of Duty are out every year! Although Ghosts was pretty terrible. :)

    Glad they're doing this. Anyone who thought for a second beta characters were going to carry over to the retail release is a complete and utter entitled moron.

    When in the history of video games has that EVER happened? Seriously - give me some examples.

    Anyone getting mad about this - and I've seen a few - needs to seriously grow up and stop behaving like a spoiled child.

  • EA Access gives players access to triple-A games for $5 a month

  • Sildur 30/07/2014

    The catch is this: it's one way of getting gamers to pay for access to old games without ever having the ability to sell the game afterwards. :)

    It's not a bad catch for such a small fee, but imagine a subscription-based game service in the future that costs £25 a month for new games. Would you rather be able to play games and trade them with your friends or sell them afterwards? Or pay EA a subscription that you'll never see again?

    This is just a way for EA and Microsoft to set the ball rolling for their original vision of gaming back at the announcement of the Xbox One: No second-hand sales, nothing to pay to retail outlets and they take all your money directly. :)

    I've been absolutely blown away by the quality of the Alpha and Beta. Truly stunning experiences and I can't wait for the final release!

    Bungie really need to nerf them before launch or the game will be filled with them and no warlocks or titans.

    I seriously feel this entire subject is total clickbait. I don't see anyone discussing this in forums outside of the gaming media.

    The only people interested in this subject are over-sensitive male teens who think being a feminist will get them laid.

    Sorry, but it's true.

    Women are a lot stronger than you think - at least the women in my life are - let them fight for themselves.

    ZOMG Why aren't there more female writers at Eurogamer??? You sexist pig, Tom Bramwell!

    Now instead of covering this stuff, please find something video game related to write about.

  • Visceral outlines changes sparked by Battlefield Hardline beta

  • Sildur 03/07/2014

    With all of the other astounding games coming out in the next few months: Destiny, Far Cry 4, Evolve, Dragon Age Inquisition, Assassin's Creed, etc... I just don't have the time or budget to pay to be a beta tester for EA/Dice/Visceral this year.

    Played the beta for probably 3 hours on the first couple of nights and didn't touch it after that. I love the Battlefield games even with their faults but I was really unimpressed with Hardline. I really wanted to love it - seriously I did - but newp - no excitement there.

    I do find it absolutely amazing how insane some Xbox gamers are behaving about this.

    Call of Duty, Rockband, Minecraft, GTAIV, Fallout 3, Fallout New Vegas, Skyrim and The Division - they all got exlusive/early DLC for Xbox. Then there are 'Xbox Exclusives' where Microsoft haven't actually invested in the developers, but simply paid off the publishers to get games such as Titanfall and Plants VS Zombies Garden Warfare.

    This situation goes to show just what insane cry-babies some Xbox gamers are. One of the very few times you're not getting the content early and you're moaning like spoiled entitled children.

    Grow up and get back in your box.

  • DICE ponders: what did people really like about Battlefield: Bad Company?

  • Sildur 24/06/2014

    The Rush modes in BFBC2 seemed a lot more fun and were beautifully laid out...

    Start at the top of a mountain and work your way through stages leading through a town all the way to a harbour... Tackle the route anyway you wish, from the mountainside to trying to sneak through the lower part of the town towards the next objective. All the while setting up defenses in two or three-story houses.

    Or start with an epic battle to take over an island, then ride by boat and jetski to a lake-side village and end up climbing a hillside trying to take over an enemy stronghold.

    By comparison, a lot of the maps in both Battlefield 3 and 4 seem extremely boring and flat.

    That's a shame. Haven't played Battlefield 3 or 4 in a while and I don't miss them.

    I DO miss Bad Company 2, but I can't see them releasing a sequel to that for a while, so my Battlefield days are behind me for a while unfortunately. :)

  • EA addresses "unacceptable" Battlefield 4 launch

    Battlefield 4 was an astounding game... When it was working. But there were minor bugs in every single match and often major ones.

    BF4 is the game that has finally soured my relationship with EA. All of my friends have jumped-ship and I'm joining them unfortunately.

    No hardline, no titanfall, no EA games for me.

    There are too many other awesome titles from much more competent developers and publishers coming out.

  • Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC Invasion out 3rd June on Xbox

  • Sildur 20/06/2014

    Love how they put on the CoD Ghosts site that each DLC would contain a new weapon and then simply reneged on it with zero explination.

    The sole reason I enjoy DLC is the opportunity to play with a new weapon.

    I actually really enjoy playing CoD with my friends but the DLC is constantly disappointing compared to cheaper DLC for other games.

    The developers are simply not even trying anymore and are sh***ing all over anyone who bought the season pass. :)

    Tom, how could you possibly say the results of the E3 presentations favour Microsoft? Sorry, but Microsoft didn't have anywhere close to the cool content the PS4 has coming.

    Microsoft are spending way too much money buying early DLC for multi-platform titles, essentially needlessly holding back content from customers on other platforms. When realistically they should be putting that money towards the creation of first-party titles.
