  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild review

  • SonicUk 02/03/2017

    Just as I called it. Horizon zero dawn gets criticised for being "unoriginal" and "not innovate enough" while being compared to every other rpg out there while the latest Zelda, which is the most generic Zelda yet and borrows ideas from every RPG game out there gets an "essential" just for being Zelda. Gotta love those double standards. Reply +5

    Can't wait to see Eurogamers Zelda review. Obviously it will be fully held to the same criticism as Horizon Zero Dawn for being "unoriginal" or "not innovative enough" of course, right Eurogamer? Reply -4
  • For Honor, online disconnects and the problem with peer-to-peer

  • SonicUk 21/02/2017

    "Recommended".

    As long as journalists carry on pandering to publishers whims this kind of thing will continue.

    My interest died as soon as they went back on their word of offline single player (I cancelled my preorder with immediate effect). Don't see why I should need to be online to play a single player campaign. Ubisoft have a history of screwing up in this department and even the actual multiplayer side of things doesn't appear to work properly.

    @samharper - It still looks ten times better than Horizon 2 on 360. The lighting is still very good looking and the textures and trackside detail still look very good imo. The landscapes also are ten times better looking imo. I was very disappointed in the 360 port of Horizon 2. As I said it looks like a launch Ps2 game. The 360 can do (and has done) much better than that travesty. Reply -4
  • SonicUk 02/02/2017

    @Trellero - I hope you're joking. The port of Horizon 2 on the 360 was graphically the worst 360 game I've ever seen, graphically rivalling launch Ps2 games. Horizon 1 on 360 looked a lot better, Tdu 1 looked incedible, Tdu 2 looked pretty good, NFS rivals looked photorealistic, NFS hot pursuit was very pretty, Burnout Paradise looked pretty good...and most of them featured weather as well as full day-night cycles and showed what the 360 could really do. It seemed to me either Sumo couldn't be bothered with the 360 anymore or were told to make it look purposefully bad so people go out and buy and Xbox one and its version of Horizon 2. It came as a massive disappointment as their other games have been of a very high standard (Outrun 2 Coast To Coast being the absolute pinnacle of their work imo). Reply -9
  • Nioh review

  • SonicUk 02/02/2017

    This looks ok but I'm torn with the souls combat mechanics/difficulty which makes the game much less accessible to average players. I would have preferred a Ninja Gaiden style system myself, which encourages players to learn the skills necessary for combat but doesn't constantly punish them when they start with no skills. I'll still give this a try as I'm into Japanese culture and martial arts, but I do really long for a Ninja Gaiden 4... Reply +2

    Anyway, I've wasted enough time and energy on this thread. I never realized there were such a lot of nasty little trolls and industry apologists out there. I really couldn't care less what those people think of me (never have, never will) .Have fun with your party. Reply +1

    @BellyFullOfHell - All of them run straight off disc unpatched though (modern consoles, old consoles just "work") so that's not really an issue. Sure there might be bugs or performance issues in vanilla, unpatched form, but I can live with that. Luckily most patches can be backed up to an external source. Reply 0

    @devilmyarse - Funny how someone who was set upon with a lynch mob mentality for stating an opinion and has been forced to defend themselves is now a "troll". Reply +1
  • SonicUk 16/12/2016

    @Bambot - Enjoying me flip out? Yeah, I'm not getting that, while sitting here perfectly calm, while you on the other hand resort to abuse.

    I'm well aware of the 90's rivalry between Sonic and Mario and disagree wholeheartedly that Mario "won". I don't think there ever was a winner, only losers with both franchises having gone downhill since that time. I fully expect more incoming negs from the ndf for stating my opinion of course, dare anyone say anything remotely bad about Mario or nintendo around here.

  • SonicUk 16/12/2016

    @Dhalamar - Ignoring everything I've written to you and yet still falsely accusing me of being "aggressive" when I've done no such thing only serves to undermine whatever argument you are trying to make. No, I won't lose sleep over it either. Reply -1
  • SonicUk 16/12/2016

    @kosmic2561 - I really have no idea where "aggression" came from or why I'm constantly being accused of something I haven't done (and already stated multiple times). I've not once been aggressive towards you or anyone else in this thread, while you on the other hand have repeatedly stooped to attempting to use personal insults, I have kept above such things. As for repeating myself, I've already given reasons for my stance and see no reason why I should do it again. Also if you don't want me to defend my choice of avatar stop going on about it, infact, didn't you say you weren't going to post anymore in this thread? Oh, and the troll accusing someone defending themselves from such things a troll themselves is just hilarious. Now I find THAT funny. Reply -1
  • SonicUk 16/12/2016

    @UncleLou - That's fair enough and thanks for the explanation. I can see where you're coming from in that aspect. It should at least have gotten a mention in the review though, or at the very least put drm requirements in the information at the top of the review next to what platform it was reviewed on. Perhaps something that could be done for the future? Reply -1
  • SonicUk 16/12/2016

    @Dhalamar - Tell that to the people who "raged" about the Xbox one prelaunch drm and other bullshit features that were since dropped directly due to such public opposition. Still don't get where I've "raged though in this thread. Reply -3
  • SonicUk 16/12/2016

    @kosmic2561 - What imaginary "facts" would those be then? The "fact" you were attempting to troll a user based on their avatar or the "fact" you've still to actually use any evidence to back up your argument?

    I've got a sense of humour thanks. I'm allowed to find pathetic trolling unfunny and don't need permission for that.

  • SonicUk 16/12/2016

    @Dhalamar - But that's the thing buddy, I have done neither of those things. I havent been agressive towards anyone, Ive not used any abuse, swearing, personal insults or anything else so I really dont know where that came from. I've defended myself against an onslaught, that's all, although I admit I cannot understand anyone who defends always online drm in single player, paid for upfront games. Reply +3

    @kosmic2561 - I was listening to a podcast the other way on my way home from work which was discussing the music industry and the piracy problem and I do agree that is was an issue I the beginning. However, as they rightly stated using facts and data the industry changed its tactics and is now flourishing. They didn't feel the need to use draconian measures and take away all forms of ownership and future proofing for the sake of trying to prevent piracy. I don't see how the game industry should be any different.

    And your Sonic trolling thing, yep, don't find it funny or anything remotely constituting a joke.

    @UncleLou - You're assuming that, which is totally incorrect. I don't expect my console to still be online in ten years, let alone 30, and I accept I won't be able to download patches or anything else to that console which is why I don't do dlc or digital downloads unless there is a surefire way to back them up. I do however expect I'll be able to play any game in my library (which is all physical) on any of my consoles in 30 years completely offline.

    I've already stated my reasons on why I disagree with the "score" (if you can call it that - I have always said "recommend" "avoid" etc should be done away with altogether and to get a gist of what the game is like you should simply have a written review with actual in game screenshots and not publisher provided bullshots).

    Seems I've ruffled a few feathers/kicked the hornets nest with my opinion. I make no apologies for that. I haven't slated anyone personally (I told one overly agressive user to shut up in retaliation for them attacking me first), but simply didn't realise there were so many industry apologists around, especially the type who will go out of their way to defend the indefensible.

    @mgnoodle - Exactly. A mobile game that will encounter signal dropouts depending on your location (as I said, a lot of people will be playing this on their commute). Why would you assume I don't have a phone signal? I'm posting this right now on a phone. However, should I go on a tube later or move to a blackspot or poor signal area, that will change things. And if I'm at home I'm not going to sit there playing casual mobile games, I'll be on the home console as.I'm sure will many others so Im not sure your point about the iPad is really relevant.

    @dwalker109 - Why would I rant towards you? I haven't done so so far in this thread.

    Drm does encourage piracy. Simply look it up (I'm at work right now and posting this on a phone so trying to look up links isn't exactly ideal for me right now). There is ample evidence that in every sine case drm has done absolutely nothing to prevent piracy and instead actively encourages it. As I said, please look it up if you want.

    @kosmic2561 - Of course I like Sonic, as my avatar shows. However, I still don't see how that is in any way relevant to the topic. It just came across as a weak trolling attempt towards a user based purely on their choice of avatar.

    I see you took my first post a bit literally. I'm still not sure how that came across as a rant? I didn't use all caps, didn't swear, wasnt angry and simply posted an opinion.

    Your comment about the music industry is one of the worst examples you could've used. The music industry is flourishing, despite piracy. I would rather devs take the witcher 3 approach - make a game so good you can't help but want to pay for it.

    @kosmic2561 - Except I was never on a rant and never once shouted and raved. I simply wrote my opinion and was then set upon by the drm defence legieon. I think you may need to adjust the way you interpret things if thats what you think.

    Trying to bring up a totally unrelated game judged solely on someone's avatar and slagoff the franchise for no reason in a completely off topic troll fest is a joke? Mmmkay.

    As I keep saying, I've already explained the reasons drm encourages piracy in this very thread and aren't going to do it again. Trying to compare that to having locks on your property really is laughable and grasping at straws. Read my post.

    @dwalker109 - Actually, that's EXACTLY right. In seven years that game you've paid real money for will be unplayable. If you're happy with that that's fine I'm certainly not and don't want to see this infestation spread any further. Why do I need to "get a grip" exactly, when I have a perfect understanding on the situation and unlike some, don't accept publisher bullshit?

    Of course drm encourages piracy as I've already said and explained the reasons why on multiple occasions in this very thread.

    @UncleLou - Oh come on now. Even you know damm well that the servers for this game will be long gone by then, rendering the game people have payed money for useless. Comparing that to a home console with physical games that can be played thirty years from now, totally offline? Really? That's like the worst example you could've picked which only serves to undermine whatever point you're trying to make. Reply +5
