  • The Last Guardian re-emerges, on track for 2016 release

  • SonicUk 27/05/2016

    @IronSoldier - Yeah ok, except for one thing, I'm not "butthurt", "precious" or "defensive" and only insult those who insult me first (seriously what would I be "butthurt" or "defensive" about exactly? Enjoying my hobby?). You just can't wait to pop up in every console thread and make some derogatory comment about console graphics or power compared to the "mighty pc" and seem to have real trouble accepting people get enjoyment from different things.

    @FMV-GAMER - Yep, I have noticed that over the years. Unfortunately some people just can't accept other people enjoy different things or have a different opinion. Pretty pathetic tbh.

    Development will of course suffer as you say when a game is in development hell, but overall I think the game looks pretty lovely for what it is (I'm not exactly a pixel counter or fps analyst mind, those things are pretty irrelevant to me as long as the fps is consistent and the game looks nice) and retains that SOC/ICO look and atmosphere for the most part. Looking forward to seeing how the final game turns out.

    @Ironsoldier - Will there ever be a day when you don't invade a console thread to start your proverbial console bashing, Pc dick waving contest? People are allowed to have different opinions of course and for someone who claims to love his Pc so much you sure do seem to spend an awful lot of time flaming console threads rather than playing your beloved Pc.

    I await the inevitable and infamous condescending, high and mighty, holier than thou reply.

    Awaiting Skippys inevitable thread invasion complete with backhanded compliment...

    The game looks good to me and is something refreshingly different as well as being quite emotional. I'm looking forward to getting this, although I am skeptical about that release window. Truely hope it does come out this year as I can't wait to play it.

  • Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands re-emerges with fresh footage

  • SonicUk 27/05/2016

    @MccyMcFlinn - Thanks for the suggestions mate, although I'm mainly a console gamer who only buys physical games so unless I can get hold of drm free physical copies I'm afraid I'm out of luck. My Pc I only use for old physical drm free games and emulators (not interested in modern Pc gaming at all). Still, I know you said with future soldier you didn't feel like a second playthrough, which is fair enough. I've completed it three times and each time used stealth and silenced weapons. You can blaze your way through it of course, but given the choice I'll always use tactics and stealth over brute force as I find the gameplay more exciting/rewarding using that style. Reply 0
  • SonicUk 27/05/2016

    @MccyMcFlinn - Hey mate. I recently bought both Operation Flashpoint Dragon Rising and Red River and can relate to slowly picking your way across the map watching for deadly stray bullets. You do feel a great sense of achievement when you complete each objective using teamwork and tactics. However, I only got into GRAW at future soldier which I throughly enjoyed. I've recently bought GRAW 1 and 2 on the 360 and have yet to play them, but really enjoyed future soldier which seemed much more of a stealth game to me than a shooter. I'd even relate it to Splinter Cell in the way it plays which is my preferred play style so that suits me fine.

    @Spacemonkey77 - I'm not against all dlc don't get me wrong. Genuine dlc that's been made since the game went gold I have no issue with as long as the pricing is reasonable, but sadly dlc has been abused to the point where huge chunks of content are being cut during developement only for the publishers to announce in great detail exactly what the dlc will contain months before the game is even finished which just leaves a bad taste in the mouth and is frankly, taking the piss.

    @ReapingAngel - Personally I'd appreciate it if there was no such thing as a "season pass" in the first place and the game I PAID FOR included all the content that was made during development instead of being cut into chunks to flog back to me later at an inflated price. The same goes with "preorder dlc". This publisher bullshit has gone on long enough, but as long as people keep giving them money for this crap it'll continue to happen.

    I also see the vultures of gaming, GAME, have bagged themselves another exclusive edition. Surely this is entrapment - taking away all choice for the consumer and forcing them to buy it from there if they want the that edition (that isnt made by GAME in the first place).

    The game itself looks good although I would have preferred big linear levels like the previous instalments (which worked really well) rather than yet another previously linear game converted to open world - developers seem to be obsessed with this tiresome trend lately. Open world games that were concieved as open world fair enough, but converting previously linear games that worked well into open worlds just so they can add pointless filler really annoys me and takes away the atmosphere of the original concept to me.

    @Gamer1234cv - Have absolutely no idea why you were negged to death because you like the look of a Collectors Edition? Have a +1 from me.

  • Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens season pass lets you play as Jar Jar

  • SonicUk 27/05/2016

    @Gemini42_ - Not at all. Its more the principal of the matter. Lets be clear, I have no interest in bloody Jar Jar dlc, unless it involves him jumping into an erupting volcano! However, the other 50 characters and the extra levels should have been in the base game they were cut out of. Additional genuine dlc made after the games gone gold is fair enough, but that clearly isn't the case here. Reply 0
  • SonicUk 27/05/2016

    So as usual, a huge amount of content cut out the main game at the development stage to be not only talked about in great detail by the publisher before the games even out but flogged back to you post purchase and in a Lego game of all things. Fucking disgusting. When did this bullshit become acceptable? Reply 0
  • Titanfall 2 leak details larger maps, new grappling hook gameplay

  • SonicUk 25/05/2016

    @OneManAndHisDroid - I get what you mean about the bonkers side of online matches but it just isn't for me. I'd rather have a more serious lore driven story to expand my understanding of the universe the game is set in. Different strokes for different folks and all that. I don't see why the game can't have both now that the groundwork has already been made in the first game. It'll certainly be interesting to see what they come up with. Reply 0
  • SonicUk 25/05/2016

    Really looking forward to this. I passed on the first one due to the fact there was no offline single player. By the sounds of it this is something thats been corrected for the sequel. Can't wait to find out more about Titanfall 2. The game looks like great fun from what I've seen so far.

    @OneManAndHisDroid - Couldn't disagree more. This game is absolutely crying out for a campaign. With the solid mechanics and groundwork already laid from the first game I see no reason why the devs can't make a story driven campaign. I have no interest in multiplayer which is why I didn't buy the first game but would have done if it had an offline campaign. I think the Titanfall universe is ripe for expansion and lore telling and would make an interesting story. As for "training for the multiplayer" I've seen that comment before but I've never felt that in any campaign I've ever played, especially as I previously mentioned I have less than zero interest in the multiplayer to begin with. Plus I buy games, not rent them so want my game to be fully playable years down the line when the servers have long been switched off. With offline single player I can do that and can return to the game whenever I want to enjoy the campaign again like I have done with many games.

  • After 10 years of waiting, Half-Life 2: Episode 3 seems further away than ever

  • SonicUk 24/05/2016

    Its pretty obvious Valve have zero interest in concluding the story. They would have done it by now otherwise. They should never have ended episode 2 on a cliffhanger if they couldn't be bothered to finish it. Yeah, I'm bitter. Even if they did release a sequel today, the new generation of gamers would have no idea what Half Life is or why it was such a classic. Reply +3
  • Destiny leak reveals next expansion Rise of Iron

  • SonicUk 20/05/2016

    Oh god, Luke Smith? Hasn't he done enough damage? Sold Destiny around the time the Taking The Piss King was released which cost more than the full(?) game and have zero desire to go back. The interview with the afore mentioned Luke Smith pretty much confirmed everything lots of people suspected and showed the complete contempt the suits in charge had for their customers. Since then we've had transactions added which has further pissed away any good will. Thanks but I'll stick to Borderlands with its proper story, proper offline single player and proper gameplay safe in the knowledge the game isn't constantly trying to open my wallet. Reply +1
  • Hard Reset Redux release date set for June

  • SonicUk 20/05/2016

    Decent old school shooter with pretty graphics (although I didn't know at the time the game had online drm so ended up having to crack my own game I'VE PAID FOR to be able to play it whenever I want years down the line (why should I have to do that?).

    Glad its coming to consoles as I always prefer playing on a console. However, is this a physical release? I've been trying to preorder it for months and have yet to find a single listing on any site?

    Edit - Just sent Flying Wild Hog an email asking if there is going to be a physical release on console. I'll update if I hear anything.

  • Homefront: The Revolution acknowledges its own troubled development

  • SonicUk 19/05/2016

    I always ignore critic reviews and always have done. I find them a waste of space generally as they usually state the complete opposite of what I think of a game and use them to read between the lines for information purposes only and disregard entirely the critics opinion of the game (I especially thought the Homefront review was ridiculously badly written). I always judge by looking at gameplay videos, reading information on what the game is about and what you have to do in it, and if possible find out if my friend who has the same taste in games has played it and what he thinks of it. I very rarely get it wrong. If I listened to every review I wouldn't have half the games I have and wouldn't have experienced so many fun times in my hobby over the years. Homefront looks excellent to me and I can't wait to play it. Reply 0

  • EA decided against Star Wars Battlefront campaign to meet Force Awakens film launch

  • SonicUk 18/05/2016

    With that in mind then hopefully the sequel will have a fully playable offline campaign. A lot of the groundwork has already been done now so there should be more time to create a proper story and build a decent and fun campaign. The last single player fps star wars game I played was Dark Forces (excellent game) back in the 90's! Reply 0
  • No new content for The Witcher 3 after Blood and Wine comes out

  • SonicUk 12/05/2016

    They have released a lot of dlc for this game post release and a hell of a lot of that has been free. Its a nice way to reward people for buying your game and I support developers like this. I havn't got the paid expansions yet but I see there is a physical version of the first expansion which I'll be purchasing soon.

    I'm intrigued about Cyberpunk. I really want to know what kind of game this will be. First person, thrid person? Is it gong to be like Deus Ex or something else entirely? Can't wait to hear and see more about this game. Love cyberpunk games and we really do need more of them.

  • Nintendo's mobile Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing games will be free-to-play

  • SonicUk 12/05/2016

    @Helmic - Fully agree. I'd happily pay upfront for a full game that I know will not be designed in a way to make you part with real money to progress or have a boring, miserable, frustrating time grinding. There is more than one way to do things as you say and I would like to see more developers making full games with an upfront fee rather than "Fee-To-Play" (not a typo). What really grinds my gears is when they put this shit in full price retail games. With mobile or Pay-To-Win games they're easy to avoid but crap like this has absolutely no place in a full priced retail game. Reply +2

    @Number_Johnny_Five - 32 months old you say? You sure do act like it. Calling someone a fool because they don't like a game is an idiotic immature response by someone with the mental age of a child. Exactly what do you think telling someone who isn't interested in a game because of the setting to go and read about the game is going to achieve? I really don't give a shit if you "accept" my opinion or not or have an issue with what I spend my own money on. Thats your problem, not mine. I suggest you go see a child councillor and maybe check yourself in to the local mental hospital as well. You clearly have issues. Reply 0
  • SonicUk 10/05/2016

    @Number_Johnny_Five - You strike me as a huge adolescent troll, especially funny as you have the nerve to accuse others of being a troll simply for not liking the setting of a game, but thats ok, I'll humour you.

    I absolutely can dismiss an entire game because of the setting. If the setting doesn't interest me neither does the game. Thats my perogative and my decision to make.

    Hope that makes things clear (but I suspect not).

    @Number_Johnny_Five - I am sticking to Cod for sure. I like sci fi settings and the new Cod looks right up my street. As for Cod running out of ideas as I said in another thread its a SEQUEL which is supposed to be more of the same. I'm not sure when people are going to get that? However, I don't like WW1/WW2 settings, old weapons and old technology so unfortunately this new Battlefield isn't for me. A shame as I have all the other BF games streching right back to Bfbc1 but I just don't like the setting in this new one.

    @dogmanstaruk - Not sure what your beef is with the Xbone or people who enjoy playing/owning a certain console? I have an Xbone as my primary console after having defected from Ps4 (which I still have but am only buying exclusives on it) and have no regrets whatsoever. To each his own but its getting quite tiring seeing you post the same "I hate xbone" crap over and over in every thread. We get it, you don't like it. Can we just move on now.

    Very dissapointing but not unexpected. Looks like I'll get negged into oblivion for saying this but I have zero interest in a WW1 or WW2 setting. I prefer using modern technology and weapons. Looks like this will be the first BF I wont be purchasing since Bfbc1. Such a shame but the setting aint for me.

    Edit - Yep, as predicted, negged into the ground simply for not liking the setting. Really?

Still, although I've completed Human Revolution (my game of the year without a doubt the year it was released) I haven't played my Directors Cut yet and have been fancying giving it a go in anticipation of Mankind Divided.

  • Titanfall 2 confirmed for Q4 launch

  • New Need for Speed coming in 2017

  • SonicUk 11/05/2016

    @ReapingAngel - Because I want to be able to play my games IVE PAID FOR years down the line. I buy games, not rent them. There is absolutely no place for drm in any single player game, including Destiny which has a single player mode but the publisher tried to make out its an "mmo" to justify this bullshit. There should be the ability to go online in games like that, but not force people online to play single player. People who just accept this shit are the problem. People like you actually, who tell people who rightly see this customer shafting bullshit for what it is to "get a life". How about you open your eyes. Reply 0
  • SonicUk 10/05/2016

    I have bought every Need For Speed ever released except last years game simply due to the forced always online drm which has no place in a single player game.

    I hope this new game returns to its roots and does away with all the hot hatch tuning bollocks and concentrates on exotic supercars, breathtaking scenery and car trivia. Most important of all it needs to be PLAYABLE OFFLINE. Lets see if EA have learnt their lesson (somehow I doubt it).

  • Chaos Theory creator plays Splinter Cell's greatest ever level

  • SonicUk 10/05/2016

    @Zarglas - Fully agree mate. I have no interest in multiplayer. Give me a decent single player Splinter Cell game and make it linear. I'd buy that in a heartbeat. At the moment I'd even buy a Splinter Cell Collection remaster.

    @MenuSourceAuto - I have both the 360 and original xbox versions of Double Agent and can confirm that the original xbox version is as you described, pretty much a full on sequel not just to Chaos Theory but it even uses the same gameplay mechanics and prioritises stealth over action (as it should be). It also runs perfectly on the 360 so I highly recommend any Splinter Cell fan check it out, especially anyone who's a fan of the earlier trilogy.
    Reply +1
  • SonicUk 10/05/2016

    My favourite level from Chaos Theory has to be the first one (storm level). I loved the atmosphere (and also love storms, I'm a huge storm fan and go storm spotting/watching from time to time) and usually like a storm level the best in a game. I'm also a huge Splinter Cell fan and must say I really enjoyed the last one. Can we please have another one (and please don't ruin it with the trend of going open world nowadays - there is no need to in a linear game). I would love a follow up to Blacklist. Oh, and get Michael Ironside back! Reply +1
  • Watch: 6 times the special edition was cooler than the game

  • SonicUk 10/05/2016

    @Gemini42_ - Talking rubbish? I think that applies to your response. Exactly right, no one one earth will know what the game is like (excpet you of course as you seem to be in possession of a Crystal ball). Sure, you might not like Cod (its obvious you don't) but to say you know the new game will be "crap" is just ignorance. As for "churning out call of duty games for more than a decade" good for them for making SEQUELS. I've enjoyed them all except World At War. Long may it continue. Reply -1
  • SonicUk 10/05/2016

    @Gemini42_ - I stand by that statement for any unreleased game that no one on earth has played yet, yes. Its common fact. You seem to be of the mindset that "I don't like it, therefore its a crap game". Reply -1
  • SonicUk 10/05/2016

    @Gemini42_ - Sorry if that came across as harsh, although I stand by what I said with regards to people calling a game that is nowhere near to being finished crap, being ignorant. How else could you describe them? They literally do not know (ignorance) what the game is going to be like. And yes, I like Cod and am fed up of seeing time and time again threads about said game with posts from people who have no interest in the game and no intention of buying it clogging up the forums saying they have no interest in the game and have no intention of buying it. Whats the point? Sure you might think Cod is dull, thats fine. I don't and like yourself am expressing my opinion and like I said am fed up of the double standards on show here.

    @Dahui - As I said I beg to differ and don't think the series has got dull at all. Why does Cod need to "innovate" (byword for crap) exactly? In this industry whenever I hear the word "innovate" we usually get shit like Wii motion controls, kinect, the virtual boy and developers trying to fix stuff that wasn't broken to begin with. The game is a SEQUEL and should be more of the same for fans of the game. The other games I listed may not have annual releases like Cod but as you well know each Cod game is made by a different team on a three year cycle so the point you made about not having time to come up with a good game is mute.

    As for your predictions, predict all you want. It still doesn't change the fact you or anyone else has no idea what the new Cod will be like.

  • SonicUk 09/05/2016

    @dahui - I beg to differ. I've enjoyed every single Cod game since Mw1 and thought they were all decent. I still don't see how anyone can tell how a game thats not even finished yet is going to be? If people don't like Cod fair enough, but to say the game is going to be crap is just talking out of ignorance.

    @Gemini42_ - Fresh and exciting? I'm not sure when people are actually going to get the fact that this is a sequel in a series and that the idea of a sequel is to be the same as whats gone before (otherwise it wouldn't be a sequel). What were you expecting, a puzzle game? As for exciting, I've found every Cod game to be exciting.

    @AmorousBadger - So just like a sequel should be then - more of the same with changes in setting and story. Whats the problem?

    Bottom line - if you don't like it, don't buy it. It's funny how Cod and Assassins Creed recieve the same critisims time and time again from people not intersted in the game, every time a new one is anmounced, yet other games like the Souls/Mgs/Uncharted/Tomb Raider/Gears Of War/Forza/Gran Turismo/Bioshock/Spinter Cell and many more series do exactly the same thing and yet recieve unanimous praise. Gotta love those double standards.

    @7M7 - Well said mate. As much fun as arcade games were in the 80's I still preferred playing at home as I could buy the game for a set price and play as much as I wanted on it (I will concede though those arcade versions of games were fantastic and I could only dream my Atari and Acorn Electron versions would look anything like that). I was never asked to pay any more money to access everything in the game back then and I don't expect to now. As you said, times have definitely changed and not for the better. Reply 0

    First of all I love Uncharted BUT, for fucks sake, I thought publishers were doing away with the "companion app" bullshit?

Transactions are also a very shady, pisstaking move in a full priced game. I can't believe its got to the point where people just accept shit like this? Worse, some will even go as far to defend it.

    I'm a cod fan (single player only) and I see absolutely no reason why I should be afraid to admit that. I enjoy the game and like what I like and really couldn't give a crap what other people think. Cant wait for the new one. It does worry me however how Destiny did so well considering the complete lack of content, zero story, the stripping down of the game prelaunch and the ludicrous dlc and transaction customer shafting tactics employed by Activision. It sets a bad precedent for things to come unfortunately. Also as someone else said, how many of those registered users are still playing? Reply 0

    The article assumes most people who chose a Ps4 over an Xbone did so because of the (negligable) power difference. However, the elephant in the room is that now infamous E3, which really set the tide against the Xbone from the start which is a shame as now all that rubbish has been ditched its actually a very good console imo. Unfortunately it will forever be tarnished due to MS customer shafting policies at the time which are no longer in place due to the massive negativativity it created (and who says "moaning" on forums doesn't work?).
