  • MAG

  • StrayBezza 29/01/2010

    Its actually really good this. Its different to MW2, in the least that you can normally last more than 3 seconds without dying! If people take to it and play it properly it will be brilliant and have long term appeal. Graphically, for its scope and size it looks good too. Definately worth picking up, unless reviews for Battlefield 2 are amazing I will stick with this I think (demo didnt exactly wow me). I'd pitch MAG, at the moment at an 8. In time, as long as the game is well supported etc that score may improve for me. Reply +7
  • Modern Warfare 2 recalled in Russia?

  • StrayBezza 17/11/2009

    TBH - That scene/level was bollocks. NOT needed or necessary to the story or gaming experience and I GUARANTEE there are gamers (or worse still kids) that took delight in playing through that level. The only saving grace for the devs etc is that there appears to be no acheivement(s) available to unlock for it, unless I am mistaken (hopingingly not). Reply +5

    I kind of agree - but with the sequel won't everyone migrate to that leaving LFD1 barren?

    I have Left for Dead, and I really like it. Do y'all think its worth keeping as well as LFD2 or shall I trade it towards it?

    the 360 version employs the use of screen-space ambient occlusion (SSAO) to give objects in the gameworld a sense of depth and "belonging" that are not present at all in the PS3 build.



    What?? Eurogamer please. Is this what its come down to?



    'screen space ambient occlusion' - is this a gaming site or an advert for the newest make up for women?

  • The Beatles: Rock Band

  • StrayBezza 09/09/2009

    @OllyJ



    Totally agree mate. One can appreciate a genre of music or a band/artist within that movement but you don't have to own their records or wear the T-Shirt. I for one am a HUGE music fan, owning over 1200+ CDs and Vinyl but don't really dig the Beatles per se!! I can see what they stood for and how they created and influenced a generation(s) but I wouldnt put their records on in my own time!!



    Also FWB - what the fuck? People are allowed to dislike what is popular with the majority!! Its how great new music is formed.



    What if Paul, John, Ringo etc accepted the music of their time and had the same taste as the masses. It would of denied you of your 'beloved' Beatles for a start - get a grip son.





    Now - wheres that Monster Magnet CD?

  • Face-Off: Resident Evil 5

  • StrayBezza 10/03/2009

    Sorry, but from watching the video "comparisons" I can't see how either version would be different in-game to most players. Yes, there are a few jagged edges, particuarly in the PS3 version but how often are they picked up by the naked eye in the heat of the action?



    I kind of liked the Resident Evil series on PS1 and 2, never played 4 mind..........not sure if I would particuarly like 5.

    themorganator



    Umm....No.



    Yes I had a PS1, PS2 from launch but I traded my PS2 and games for an original Xbox, then got a 360 on launch - along with a Live membership since it became available. I have now got both (sold the Wii) and I love the 360. Unless my eyes deceive me where are the massive differences in these sample videos? Ok there is slightly more clarity in the 360 Bioshock version but Dead Space and Midnight Club?? I really can't see how these would impact gameplay or be noticeable when playing - Wasn't Oblivion meant to be better on PS3? For the record I can't see it!! But maybe thats my inner Xbot speaking...........

  • StrayBezza 04/11/2008

    Sorry but I own both consoles and Eurogamer you are making yourselves look stupid. This article (and I do find comparisons valuable) are so gleefully anti PS3 its a piss take. To most gamers the differences are minute and insignificant yet you 'big up' the 360 versions at any opportunity. Seems like, for a lot of PS3 games you pick holes and faults in, actual gamers who have had the experiences with said titles have no issues (bar one or two games). The previous Face-Offs you have compiled have been quite good but this one smacks of overt fanboy overtones. This may be utterly unfounded and far from the truth but it does not read that way........

    Actually, as an Xbox Live member since its launch on the original Xbox, PSN (considering its free) is excellent and getting better and better. I play a lot online on both systems and have never had issues so great on the PSN network that made me sit back and think, "Gosh, I wish I was paying 40 quid a year for this, it would be so much better than Xbox Live".

  • Fallout 3

  • StrayBezza 28/10/2008

    This wasn't hugely on my radar....but hell.......now its is......so many games so little time.....! 10/10 for this and Fable 2, it does bring into question the giving of a 9 to Saints Row 2 mind....its fun and all but a 9??? From what Krudsters saying however he does eloquently justify the mark here and from the majority of comments Fable 2 is being well received. Reply 0

  • StrayBezza 28/10/2008

    Got Midnight Club on PS3 and its brilliant, came home last Frdiay with Far Cry 2 as well, fully expecting that to dominate the weekend. It was the racing game that gripped me however, very addictive, looks brilliant and pisses on Burnout Paradise (which I thought was gash - IMO!!) What a great few weeks etc for PS3/360 owners......... Reply 0
  • Far Cry 2

  • StrayBezza 21/10/2008

    As an PS3 and 360 owner, would it be too much to ask which platform this was reviewed on? And before the flaming I like both systems equally and merely want to pay for the best gaming experience Far Cry 2 can offer, whether its on Microsofts or Sony's. P.s I notice we were told it was the PS3 version of Midnight Club..... Reply 0
  • Saints Row 2

  • StrayBezza 17/10/2008

    Sorry, I like Eurogamer and its usually fairly and accurate in its reviews etc. However, I am mighty suspicious over the 9 awarded to this game. Like most decent gamers ( I imagine) one can tell fairly soon by playing a release what kind of score it deserves or is going to deserve. I am 5 or so hours into this and, unless it has a monumental moment just around the corner, there is no way this is a 9 scoring game. Why? Well, It looks worse than the first one, it feels like the first one, yes it has some laugh out loud moments - mainly in the character creation set up and in general does nothing new. I understand that games don't necessarily have to innovate or push boundaries (although it helps) to score highly and that simple fun factor is very important. If its being scored on that basis how is it more fun than the first SR? or, indeed how is mercenaries less fun than SR2? (and that looked better than this and scored less I believe). With all the promo stuff splashed all over this site - sorry Eurogamer - but I smell a rat. Still, each to their own. I will be interested to see what others think of the full game............

  • GTA IV still top of the UK charts

  • StrayBezza 29/05/2008

    I think Haze and its critical savaging at the hands of the media provides interesting food for thought. I consider myself a pretty hard to please gamer, I am usually a bit of a graphics whore as well. I also own all 3 of this gens consoles and love them all for varying reasons.

    Despite the mauling of Haze I picked it up cheap (traded some completed PS3 games) and, you know what, Its actually a lot fun!!

    Yes, it has glitches etc (which as has been pointed out can provide comedy moments) and indeed the script and story is laughable -



    I think this is kind of my point - in the midst of these console wars and massive expectation for graphical prowess - coupled with gaming suddenly becoming a massive (ultimately money making) industry are we losing sight of games just being fun??



    I am aware that Haze may be a bad case in point and 100% it should have been better.



    However - look at other reviews and compare - some scores just don't stand up against the raping that Haze actually got.



    Rainbow Six Vegas 2 - really any worse graphically??

    Halo 3 - massively generic storyline

    GTA - no real step forward in terms of innovation etc...



    Granted all the above are great games but they are great because they are ultimately fun...



    I dunno - just popped into my head after reading some of the comments field....



    Its all personal preference at the end of the day but I have had an absolute blast with Haze online as I have since launch with Rainbow Six, Resistance etc etc...



    Alot of people will buy and enjoy Haze for what it is....a bloody good laugh (sub standard product aside lol)...



    Peace out.
