  • Need for Speed Rivals Complete Edition out next month

  • SonicUk 18/09/2014

    I loved Nfs Rivals on the 360 and have been waiting for it to come down in price on Ps4 so I can get it again. Can Eurogamer find out if the dlc is included on the disc or if this is effictively the standard version with dlc codes inside? The reason Im asking is Ive just seen Nfs Rivals going for 35 and dont know whether to buy that or if this complete does actually include the content on the actual disc.

    EDIT - negged for asking advice for a game I enjoy? What the hells wrong with some people?

  • Forza Horizon 2 has eight free day-one DLC cars

  • SonicUk 17/09/2014

    Day one "dlc", "season pass" bullshit, "preorder bonuses", "retailer exclusive" crap (ie GAME exclusive - because its ALWAYS those vultures) , drm, I really hate what modern gaming has become.

    The games not out til next month. I'm betting these "free" cars were finished a long time ago so why arent they on the disc? Anyone remember when you used to just buy a FULL game and then maybe a sequel a couple of years later?

  • Sony insists Vita is here to stay

  • SonicUk 12/09/2014

    @Ryze Agree with most of what you said but have to disagree on the Xperia Play. I have one and love it. Cant stand touch/swipe controls, and the Xperia gets around that issue. Best portable gaming console ever imo. Can play all my old retro games on the move with proper controls. The only things that let it down are the sticks (which are not sticks at all but touchpads, which are clumsy and unresponsive) and Sonys complete and total lack of firmware updates (a quick look at the net shows its completely possible to run modern versions of Android on this phone, although you have to mod your phone to do it). Apart from that, the physical controls are awesome, it has a good quality screen and doubles up as a smartphone I can take anywhere, use for sat nav, internet etc. I just wish Sony would release an Xperia Play 2.

    @TheEarlOfZinger thats because there are none to buy and none due out, except for the initial batch of Killzone, Uncharted and a few others released YEARS ago. The only recent addition to the lineup I can recall is Borderlands 2. Reply -1
  • SonicUk 12/09/2014

    The utter contempt Sony show for their own console is fucking staggering. I didnt buy a Vita just so I can play indie games (I have zero interest in digital downloads on consoles, phones however are an exception) or use it as a minature tv screen for my Ps4. I bought it to play some good quality high tier games ffs. If Sony cant be bothered to support their own console how can they expect anyone else to?

    What it needed from the start was an hdmi out port (so you can play your games on the move and when you get home play them on the big screen, while having the sound come out your sound system). That VitaTv thing is useless and incompatible with 99.9% of Vita games as pretty much the entire library needs use of the touchscreen or swipe panel at some stage - Killzone requires it to even get past the title screen. The sticks should have been clickable to act as L3 and R3 but even with those omissions its still got massive potential. Sony however would rather flush it down the toilet (after taking a massive dump on it first).

    Sincerly,

    One very pissed off Vita owner.

  • Forza Horizon 2 proves the driving genre is back at its best

  • SonicUk 21/08/2014

    @Suarez07 Oh yeah, of course. I understand they need to sell their new system, but they shouldnt be completely ignoring the game on the old one either. If they didnt want it on the 360 they shouldnt have let Sumo make it and just kept it a bone exclusive.

    @Cyber6 I must admit I have only seen the comparison on Digital Foundry (which uses youtube videos) so the difference at home on the Tv will be more profound than in the video but from what I saw of the actual textures, special fx etc the 360 version of Titanfall held up pretty well imo. Taking the direct comparison aside for one moment and just judging the 360 version on its own merit I think it looks pretty good for a 360 game. Shame its online only, otherwise I would've bought a copy.

  • SonicUk 21/08/2014

    @Suarez07 ? It releases the same time as the bone version.

    If you're talking about Tomb Raider on the other hand then yes I will wait, although I wont hold my breath. Microsoft themselves never mentioned the 360 version in their gamescom conference, instead talking only about the bone version. Fully expected going on past evidence.

  • SonicUk 21/08/2014

    @Cyber6 whilst I agree that in most cases that is common practice, when your game is made with seperate teams on two different platforms and the devs themselves say "Its a totally different experience" surely both versions should be shown? Microsoft buried any and all media from the 360 version of Titanfall trying to make out it was a bone exclusive to sell more bones and a more expensive version of the game. They intentionally got the devs responsible for the 360 version to delay it as long as possible after the bone version was launched. Eventually when it couldnt be delayed any longer and it was released (still with zero media and no advertising whatsoever for the 360) people were amazed at how good it was.

    In the old days I used to buy games for my Acorn Electron with screenshots from totally different (and supierior) versions on the back, so I am used to false advertising. I just want to know what the 360 version ("the totally different experience") is going to be like and why Microsoft seem so desperate to hide it like they did with Titanfall (and no doubt Tomb Raider).

  • SonicUk 21/08/2014

    I know microsoft are, much like Titanfall, (and no doubt Tomb Raider and any other game coming out on both systems) pretending the 360 version does not exist and insinuating these games are bone exclusives but I really think its time game journos called them out on bullshit practices like this. I want to know what the version I will be buying is going to be like, seeing as its supposed to feel like a different game according to the developer (all the more reason to have some info on it)? Perhaps journos could press harder on this issue for all those 360 owners and ask Microsoft directly and publically why they are being so evasive? Reply -2
  • Video: Road Redemption is a fun, erratic homage to a 90s classic

  • SonicUk 15/08/2014

    @parazels Yeah, to me the originals will never be beat on gameplay. I do like that some talented fans have made a spiritual sequel though, something EA cant be bothered to do.

    Yeah, those things I said are niggles really, although I do hope they are seen as constructive as I think they would really improve the gameplay experience. I do appalude the coders though who have made this. Hoping the game gets even better (and please release it on disk and on consoles!).
    Reply 0
  • SonicUk 15/08/2014

    Couple of things. First off is it me or do the bikes seem a bit small? Secondly "Handbrake" should be "Rear Brake". A small niggle perhaps but in a bike game it would make more sense. I'd also like a speedo. The Road seems too wide too. Sure, you would have dual carridgeways, but not for every location, 100% of the time. Lastly, it seems to suffer from the same issues all other 3d Road Rash games have - its very difficult to hit people. The Megadrive originals had narrower roads and rubber banding so even with the throttle pinned other riders would come alongside sometimes and you would be able to fight. The 3d games just seemed to me that because there was more physical space around your rider it was much harder to line up a swipe (and this one looks no exception).

    I'd still buy it mind, but only if it came on a physical disk for consoles. Sadly I have no interest in digital downloads and even less in steam. Eurogamer, commentary is ok on a presentation like this (cant stand it on lets play videos though as I want to hear the game) but please we do not need to see the commentator window, especially when it covers up part of the screen. Also if you don't want to use mouse and keyboard when there is no joypad option may I recommend Joy-To-Key, a little keymapper program that works well in my experience. Also, whats a "roguelike"?

    Its pretty sad that people have got nothing better to do than bother to take the time to log in and post their displeasure-lack-of-interest waffle on a game they have absolutely zero interest in and zero intention to buy.

  • Bungie reassures fans disappointed that Destiny only has one playable area per planet

  • SonicUk 28/07/2014

    Being that this is "the first version of the game" that should tell you all you need to know, and it is very worrying indeed that the developers are already cooking up content before the games even finished. They should be making the best possible game they can right now, not trying to fix it later or milk it with dlc.

    For what its worth I enjoyed the beta and couldnt stop playing it, but I did notice the map wasnt a full open world by any stretch and tbh thats what I was expecting going by the media interviews etc.

    A purchase on the full game comes down to this...I want to be able to play it completely offline if I wish. If I cant do that I'm simply not interested. Sadly its not looking likely going by the beta, and if thats the case Bungie have lost a sale.

  • What's in the Destiny beta?

  • SonicUk 18/07/2014

    One thing thats stopping me preordering this. The devs said a while back that you can play single player if you wish, but never actually used the term "offline". I want to know if you can still play the game totally offline? I will be playing the game online with mates most of the time, but I collect my games and play a lot of retro stuff. I want to know I have that peace of mind which means I'll still be able to play it years down the line when the servers are long gone. If not the game literally has no value to me sadly, which I hope is not the case as it looks great. Reply -1
  • What's going on at Criterion?

  • SonicUk 18/07/2014

    @Phear_Trigger Yeah, I must admit that was my first thought. I liked Fuel and would welcome another similar game as long as there is a strong single player component and it isnt focussed too much on multiplayer without forgetting the single player part - like others have said something I think Paradise did.

  • SonicUk 17/07/2014

    I got absolutely destroyed by negs last time I wrote this, but I dont see why gamers should pay to be alpha or beta testers? If any money has to change hands then surely its the gamer that should be paid? I'm sure the industry would love another fleecing tactic but this is one gamer that will never accept it, just like on disc dlc, "retailer/platform exclusive content", "season passes", day one dlc, day one patches, drm, Pay-To-Win being labelled as "free" etc.

    I like Criterion, although I'm not a fan of Burnout Paradise. I prefer the Burnout games to be more linear where you pick your course from a map and race on closed off roads (with hidden shortcuts), rather than open world. I just didnt get on with Paradise and found it very difficult at high speed to see which road to take and would often crash trying to change roads or go down the wrong one which would take me miles away from the end goal (even though it pointed towrads it on the map at the time). I prefer a Nfs Most Wanted (1) approach of blocking off the other roads when in a race so you know where to go.

    I think their best game however was Nfs Hot Pursuit 3. That game was very special and I loved that there was no tuning and everyday cars, just pure exotica and I also loved that the car trivia was back from the first three games in the series (although I would've really liked the slides and videos to be brought back too). To me thats what Nfs is about, exotic cars that very few of us will ever get to drive/own in real life, and the open road. Hot Pursuit 3 felt like a real return to roots.

  • Codemasters responds to Grid Autosport 2.39 Boost Pack DLC criticism

  • SonicUk 16/07/2014

    @A_FAN whilst that may be true, back then grinding was nowhere near the ordeal it is today (where Transactions - nothing Micro about them, are concerned). A game without them in doesnt seem to take absolutely ages to level up, earn enough money etc compared to a game that has them as an "option". In Gt3 as an example I remeber once you unlocked a couple of tiers the races gave you a big reward for winning and I was able to buy new cars regually. Gt6 by contrast is the other way around. Grind endlessly for hours upon hours to save up for a 1980's Honda Civic and a few tuning parts. Yes the whole point of those games is to earn stuff and its fun doing it, but not for hours upon hours just to get one measly car with not enough power to get up a steep incline. There needs to be a balance. Before transactions that balance was perfect upon launch, today it sadly isnt. They've tweaked the economy in Gt6 with a patch for example but it shouldnt of needed that to be done to begin with.

    Even if the balance was perfect on launch, how many sales would a game publisher lose because the game featured transactions and clued up gamers didnt trust the economy in that game, regardless if it was effected or not? Going by what Ive seen on the forums a lot of lost sales, not just for that one game, but people are boycotting anything else made my that same publisher. Is that really the way you would want to run a business? Alientate your existing customers from your present and any future products? Its not a very good business strategy.

    Oh fuck off Codemasters. Of course the main game would have been adjusted to make it take longer to unlock, whilst dangling the carrot of "Pay here to unlock this" infront of players. If not what exactly would be the incentive? Even if it hasnt, you can see exactly why people would think that. "People don't have time to play the game"? Why the hell would you buy it in the first place then if that was true?

    Most gamers have gotton wise to "Free To Play" and avoid it like the plauge so for a while now publishers have tried to implement it in full games. Heres one gamer who is not going to accept this shit. Don't you get that putting shit like this in full priced games actually loses you sales and credability? The bottom line is shit like this should, under no circumstances be in a full priced game and that is not up for debate.

  • The Last of Us Remastered lets you lock frame-rate at 30fps

  • SonicUk 16/07/2014

    More framerate/resolution nonsense. Is this all gamers care about nowadays? I thought gaming was about having fun?

    What is more concerning is "new dlc". If this is a remaster then the dev team can take as much time as they need as the original has already been released and there is no rush to get the remaster done. For that reason anything new not seen in the original game should be included on the disc in the re-release. There is no excuse whatsoever for any additional dlc.

  • Blurred lines: Are YouTubers breaking the law?

  • SonicUk 16/07/2014

    Well that explains those Cod scores year on year (I jest, I jest! I actually enjoy Cod for its Campaigns - not interested in Multiplayer).

    Still, this doesnt surprise me one bit. Media corruption is nothing new and I have been calling out biased reviews etc for years. Whats worrying though is the amount of people I know that will base a future purchase directly on the strength of a review. The best way is to watch some gameplay, possibly play a demo (which unsurprisingly seem to be getting rarer these days) and find out as much info as possible before you make your descision but take a well known critics actual "opinion" about the game with a massive pinch of salt and make up your own mind based on all the information you have gathered. Thats all I've ever done and I very rarely make a mistake or regret buying a particular game.

    Oh, and this business about a review being someones opinion is largely true. However, it is the reviewers obligation to also point out facts such as game breaking bugs, performance issues or long loading times. These things are not opinions, they are simply the truth, and your viewers/readers should be informed of this. And please ditch review scores, they serve no purpose whatsoever.

    Edit - can't believe theres people actually defending this, and anyone who speaks out against such things is instantly downvoted. Ideas of the fleecing variety are quickly copied and pasted in this industry. Is this what you want, paying for betas? Worse, paying extortionate amounts of money for them?

  • See DriveClub's dynamic weather in action

  • SonicUk 09/07/2014

    Looks nice, BUT the gaming sites and media would have you believe this is the first game to have water droplets or beads on the paintwork. I seem to remember Pgr4 on 360 doing that years ago?

    Still interested in this though, on the condition it can be played totally offline. I do have to ask again though why the weather is not included on the disk considering the game isnt out for months? Its bad enough content is ripped from full games to be added as "dlc" later, now they're doing it with graphical effects? Thats a step too far imo (free or not). Not interested in all that social crap the industry seems intent on pushing either. I just want to play a decent racing game on my Ps4. Hopfully this will fit the bill but yeah very pissed about that weather. Looking forward to Horizon 2 on my 360 this year as well (albiet the downgraded-media-blackout-no-weather-to-make-the-bone-look-more-appealing edition).

    Oh yes, I almost forgot, I don't give a flying shit about resolutions and framerates. I'm more interested in graphical fidelity and good gameplay.

    Why is it that those vultures at Game ALWAYS get a exclusive Collectors Edition (often the only one available although thankfully not in this case which is rare). You never see Amazon, Zavvi, Shotpto etc getting an exclusive Edition, no, its always those money grabbing, scamming fraudsters at fucking Game. Have these publishers learnt nothing from last time when the Mass Effect 3 Collectors Edition - at the time a Game exclusive, coincided with Game running into financial trouble and therefore unable to stock it, leaving publishers high and dry with an Edition they had no-where to sell and were therefore very fortunate other retailers agreed to take it (personally if I was one of those retailers I would have stuck two fingers up at the publisher out of principal)? Game don't make these Editions, they sell them, just like everyone else so why do they ALWAYS get the special treatment and the best version?

    Fuck the publishers and fuck Game.

    Also, 85 for a digital download??!? Is this a joke?

    Also, although I like physical stuff in my Collectors Editions ripping digitial content out of the game before its even finished to be sold back to you at an inflated price is taking the fucking piss. All Editions should contain THE FULL GAME. Collectors Editions should consist of THE FULL GAME and physical stuff and nothing else.

  • UK watchdog bans Dungeon Keeper ad, accuses EA of "misleading" customers

  • SonicUk 03/07/2014

    Good. Maybe they can ban the whole payment model while they're at it which by its very nature is "misleading" at best and absolute extortion at worst. Core gamers will avoid this kind of thing like the plauge as they're generally clued up and know a scam when they see one, especially as most have been around for a long time and know how buying a game and getting the full experience is done. What's worrying is the younger generation of gamers have never experienced that and don't know any different, and will grow up thinking shit like Pay-To-Win is the norm, fuelling the publishers pockets and making it even more prevalent.

    I'd like to see every single Pay-To-Win game made illegal along with on disc dlc (disc witheld content), day one dlc, drm and season passes. Call me an old git, but I remember how good things used to be, and refuse to be shafted out of the value I should recieve when buying a game. Yes, I am a publishers worst nightmare, and so are many more old gamers who wont stand for this shit.

    The other problem with Pay-To-Win shit like this is it gives proper, completely free games like Streets Of Rage remake for example a bad name where people get confused and assume anything claiming to be "free" isn't. The sooner the cancer of "Free To Play" is removed from this planet the better off we'll all be.

    I have absolutely zero interest in Lol. However, this is a general problem so I'll post anyway. The problem with anything like this is its wide open to abuse (just check out some of the trollish/fanboy/adbot comments on Eurogamer for example or the absolutley pointless comments voting system which is abused 99.9% of the time) which is one of the reasons I have zero interest in Multiplayer gaming with unknowns, but does that mean legitimate users/players should be penalised by having that facility they also use taken away - how is that even remotely fair on the legitimate users? At least they're keeping private chat and messages online so there will still be ways to communicate with like minded souls. Hopefully they'll sort this out in the future so legimate players can have their public chat back. Reply -1

    Awesome. Finally a Ps4 Gran Turismo that will take advantage of the hardware.

    standard cars set to stay
    Wait, just...WHAT??!!!

    Why even bother making it for Ps4 if you're still using assets from two generations ago?!! The standard cars belong in the bin. I hate to make comparisons with Forza as is always the case in either a Gt or Forza thread so forgive me, but in this case it seems warranted as Forza 3 had about 800 cars I believe that were all 360 assets and every single one of them had an interior view (that pathetic blacked out view they patched in the recent Gt games is awful and I dont consider it a cockpit view at all unless there are actually some textures). This just seems incredibly lazy by the dev team as they clearly cannot be bothered to make proper models and interior views. At this point I'd settle for a quarter of the cars previous games had if it meant they all used proper assets and all had interior views. This though, this is just a joke.

    Awesome game that I still play today with the direct 3d mod.

I've never actually finished the game, but I might just have to now after reading this. The music deserves a mention too, especially the Depths Of Arignar track.

    Its funny, I mentioned this in an article last week about the new Unreal Tournament game saying how I'd much prefer a sequel to this (not the awful Unreal 2) or even a completely redone proper hd remake that makes the game look like a modern game but still retains the gameplay of the original.

  • SonicUk 24/06/2014

    Funnily enough I was saying to a mate the other night about how I'd like to see a Gta 5 first person mod, and here it is! Although there are some graphic issues due to clipping the mod does have potential, especially when the Pc version arrives as the article states, as I'm guessing it will be easier to mod? If the guy can add the reticule (bit hard to aim without it) and maybe iron sights this could be really good.

    I would like to see a fully 3d in car view for the next gen remake with working dials that light up at night, although I doubt Rockstar will do this.

    @ChromeMud There was an Isle of Man TT game on the Saturn called Manx TT., and that was 20 years ago! As you said there is no reason today why developers cant make a game based on the TT circuit. You could ride round it on all different types of bike, and have something for everyone.

    @Darkwaknight Yeah I remember that one. It used the tracks from Gran Turismo. The only issue I had was that you didn't spend actual money on buying a bike and upgrading it but won them instead if I remember?

    Also, check out a game on the Ps2 called Jacked. It was very similar to Road Rash where you had different weapons and had to fight other riders. You could also steal other riders bikes and add them to your collection. The only thing slightly off putting to me is that it was track based and I'd rather have this type of game on open roads, but the game itself was still fun to play and I'd recommend anyone who doesn't mind playing Ps2 games today to check it out.

    @raybey1 Good to meet a fellow rider (virtual nod)! I've never heard of that game. I'll have to check it out mate, might be worth picking up a copy. Reply +1

    @MrPhil I know mate and the second one did as dlc but there was only one sports bike in each and very little else. What I'm after is a game like that but with far more bikes in it where bikes take priority over cars instead of the other way round. I like sports cars as well but there are loads of roadcar racing/driving games. How about something similar featuring bikes? Or something like Nfs the Run where you take part in an epic ride across a whole continent on a Cbr/Ninja/Fazer/R6/R1/Sv650s/916/any bike of your choosing? That would be awesome.

    @pmj85 I've seen that also and is a great example of what I meant by EA sitting on the license and it being up to bedroom coders to do what the big publishers/devs cant be bothered to. The only issue with that for me is being an indie title I have no physical copy and no box for my collection (something I would most likely have if it was made by a big publisher) and those things are an essential purchase requirement for me as I like to collect things but also more importantly like to play old games, something which I cant do with a digital title should I need to redownload it in a few years and the server is long gone.
