  • WipEout co-creator's Table Top Racing: World Tour a timed PS4 exclusive

  • SonicUk 21/10/2014

    Why does it have to be paid for and have "premium dlc"? As usual the game isnt even out yet and already they're cooking up the "dlc". Cant anyone just make a full game nowadays and release it? If the game is of good quality it will sell itself. Reply +2
  • Jade Raymond leaves Ubisoft after a decade

  • SonicUk 21/10/2014

    I'm not sure why she has had so much coverage over the years (except thst shes hot, obviously - think I've just answered my own question) but I wish her well in her future projects/career and thank her for helping bring one of my favourite game series to light (AC). Its nice to read about someone getting a new job rather than the usual doom and gloom with studios shutting down etc. Reply +1
  • Far Cry 4 Season Pass brings PvP and yetis

  • SonicUk 21/10/2014

    That sounds like a really good deal Ubisoft, but I think I got a better one...

    How about I give you the finger




    And you give me my content ON THE DISC?

    FOR FUCKS SAKE.

    As usual the "season pass" and its content announced by the publisher in great detail before the games even out. Is it not possible to buy a FULL game at retail anymore? Physical expansion packs a year to a year and a half after the game has launched fine, I have no issue with. However, this gouging of games before they're even released has to stop. I know the industry is pushing hard to make this the new accepted standard, but this is one old school gamer that will NEVER accept that, just like my missing instruction booklets in my brand new games, drm, rip off dlc, retai...I mean GAME exclusive "content" and all the other crap this and only this industry has tried to pull over the years.

    God, I hate modern gaming (like 75% of the time). Whats worrying is the new generation of gamers that are just getting into gaming think this is the way things are and literally don't know any different - this is what the greedy publishers are counting on to usher in their new way of doing things. The more people that buy into it, the worse it gets for everyone.

  • Two discs "wasn't practical" for Halo: Master Chief Collection

  • SonicUk 20/10/2014

    I call bs. There is no reason whatsoever the online portion of the game couldnt fit on a second disc which is installed but requires the first disc in the console to use as a disc check. Maybe ms are trying to save 50p on the cost of disks these days?

    What worries me is the new "disguised" drm tactic where games seeminly require an internet connection for no apparent reason. Destiny and the Crew spring to mind and while these games are mostly online they can be played by one person so there is no reason they should require an internet connection. Halo is a bit different where it can be played Single player totally offline and if you're playing online vs of course you would need an internet connection. However, as I said there is no reason the multiplayer content could not have been put on a second disc. None at all.

  • UK gov changing law to get tough on internet trolling

    I think they are getting trolling and cyber-bullying mixed up, although I agree with the sentiment in principal. They do need to be very careful how they go about this though. Some fanboy trolling on a website while annoying and childish is completely different to someone harrassing and threatening someone online. Reply +5
  • "Majority" of DriveClub owners can now connect online

  • SonicUk 20/10/2014

    Subheading should read "STILL no news on the Ps Plus version".

    This is taking the piss. If server problems were causing the issue then the Plus version should have been released with the online parts of the game disabled (as well as the servers being tested properly pre launch in the first place). This reeks of an underhand sales tactic, something which erodes peoples confidence in a brand very quickly. Eurogamer should be asking these guys some serious questions regarding the complete absence of the Plus version and any information regarding it. Hopefully by the time I get my full copy at Xmas the issues are sorted out and the weather (which shouldve been on the disc to start with) will be patched in.

    Can you please make sure the upcoming face off consists of ALL platforms Eurogamer (that goes for all upcoming face offs)?

  • SonicUk 02/10/2014

    @mega-gazz Ah right, I completely misunderstood what you were trying to say in your post. Sorry for the confusion, my apologies.

    I don't mind the event being moved if it means different people get to attend that otherwise couldn't because of the location. It just means sadly I doubt I'll be able to attend. If it was an event you could spend more than half a day at I wouldn't mind, I'd book a hotel/b&b room and happily spend a couple of days there (did that at Alton Towers once, spent the first day at the theme park and two more days in the local area sightseeing, wonderful place). As you say though it isn't worth coming all that way just to play a few games (at least in my circumstances anyway).

    I hope everyone who can now attend next year has a good time though, and there's always Rezzed to try out in London I guess. I haven't been to that before so as long as it's still on in London next year I might go and see what its all about.

    @mega-gazz Selfish? Because it takes hours to travel somewhere 140+ miles further away, which will also cost more than triple for travel costs, not even factoring in the price of a ticket? Not saying it shouldnt or cant be moved elsewhere, just stating the facts above that apply to my personal circumstances and regrettably because of that I wont be attending next year.

  • Gauntlet review

  • SonicUk 30/09/2014

    Used to love playing Gauntlet on a mates Amstrad Cpc464 back in the day. Tried this new version at the Expo but it just didnt have the same atmosphere for me. I dont think thats the fault of the game though, its something I get a lot with remakes - the new graphics are so different, the game loses something in the translation for me. Problem with nostalgia is there's never any way to beat it. Still, the new game was fun, just not as much fun as the original imo. Reply +2

    So, as usual a games not even out yet, and already not only has "dlc" been announced, but its been talked about and described in great detail by the publisher. This isnt "dlc", its gwc - game withheld content. Is it not possible to just buy a FULL game nowadays, without being held to ransom by some over zealous publisher?!?? The sad part is the game looked awesome at the Expo this year, but SHIT like this just leaves a bad taste. Reply 0
  • Need for Speed Rivals Complete Edition out next month

    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?

    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.

  • SonicUk 12/09/2014

    @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.
    Reply -2
  • 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.
    Reply -2
  • 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"?

  • 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.

  • 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

  • SonicUk 18/07/2014

    @Phear_Trigger Yeah, I must admit that was my first thought.

  • 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.

    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.

  • 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.

  • Report: Murdered: Soul Suspect dev Airtight closes down

  • SonicUk 03/07/2014

    Another day, another studio closed down. At this rate it will only be the biggest budget studios of A and M$ left (shudder). I really feel for those that have lost their jobs. Unless a game does a ridiculous amount of sales it seems studios close down. Theres something very wrong with this industry today. I wish the staff well and hope they find other employment soon.

    Not sure how this was "unloved" at E3 Eurogamer? From what I've seen everyone who saw the game had nothing but positive things to say about it. Reply +7
  • Lindsay Lohan sues Rockstar over allegedly using her likeness

  • SonicUk 03/07/2014

    This right here is whats wrong with the world. People sueing left and and center for ridiculous claims like this one where the character looks NOTHING like her. I guess shes skint so trying to desperately find someone to sue over something non-sensical. This kind of shit is why companies are so frightened of being sued for the slightest little thing that ridiculously overboard health and saftey stuff is so prevalent, and is also the reason why I cannot get payment protection insurance on finance EVEN THOUGH I HAVE ASKED FOR IT. Whats needed is a drastic shake of of the law where ontop of legal fees the courts can fine people for wasting their time in trying to sue for the sake of it. Reply 0
  • 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.

    Let the hate begin...oh wait, it already has. Honestly, if you don't like it don't buy it. Why is that so difficult? Reply +2
