  • Halo: The Master Chief Collection's latest update detailed

  • TPoppaPuff 21/01/2015

    @Nades I feel as though Destiny mp could be fun, but it's so imbalanced and they'll never change the main issues. Yes the fusion rifles are ridiculous, certain shotguns can be outrageous, and almost all the specials are extremely OP. Crucible would need a complete rebalancing to the point of weapon and ability balancing being separate from the pve content and Bungie has pretty much refused to do that. Reply 0

    @Nades If you're mainly an MP person, then you could also see why Destiny Watchdogs and ACU are pure trash while TF is woefully short on content and as something that was $60 new, is an outright crime against humanity. Reply -1
  • TPoppaPuff 20/01/2015

    @Nades Broken MCC still had four great campaigns. Destiny is a frustratingly grindy pos, titanfall is a two hour rental, and watch dogs and acu are such hot garbage you couldn't pay me to play them anymore. Even if those two worked, why would anyone want to play those pos? MCC mp was broken and that's disappointing because they are otherwise great games. Destiny and Titanfall are complete ripoffs. WD and ACU, even if working perfectly fine, are bad games. That's way more disappointing to me. You can patch bugs, you can't patch bad game design.

    To each their own though.

    @Nades Did you try Destiny or Titanfall? Or how about Watch Dogs or Assassin's Creed Unity? I had a blast playing through the campaigns, so while I do get that a lot of people are pissed about the multiplayer, there was still four games' worth of solid campaign fun, whereas those other games were severely lacking in any value beyond a few hours of dicking around.

    @Gizmopop I preordered TLoU and TR in 2013. I bought TLoU and TR again this year for $30 off PSN and $20 new, respectively. They were the best two games of 2013. Playing them again at a higher framerate and improved resolution (or straight up better graphics in TR) was plenty of reason enough for me to pick up again. Reply 0

  • TPoppaPuff 20/01/2015

    As shown from our early PS4 hands-on, character models are redesigned...
    Really? Because I didn't see any of that and haven't seen any evidence in this article either. Uprezzed, sure, but not redesigned. The design is the exact same; the only difference is the models and textures are a higher resolution. They're still wearing the same outfits, have the same facial features, and have the same persona as before.

    @Rich Stanton, if you think Bungie knows everything and was smart enough to realize things like the first chest were easily exploitable, you obviously haven't played Crucible. That is still horribly balanced across the classes.You're giving Bungie way more credit than they deserve. Reply +7

    I found an error in this editorial.

    Benevolent means goodwill or charitable. If we're describing Destiny it should say less benevolent overlord.

    Actually I'd argue it should say cruel overlord...

  • Destiny patch takes aim at Crota's End raid exploits

    The problem with Destiny is that rather than fixing any bugs or add more content to the game, they spend all their time removing cheeses.

    Kotaku had a wonderful article about it here. Everything in it is so true.

  • Digital Foundry: Hands-on with the Halo 5 beta

  • TPoppaPuff 06/01/2015

    @Generalkidd The lighting alone would have killed it. With that said, if you dumbed down the lighting to Halo 2 levels, pared down assets and removed water physics along with dropping down to 480, you can make an argument. An argument that honestly would be pretty comparable on an SD display at that point. I always thought Halo 3 was ugly though. Why were Johnson and Miranda clay freaks of nature in Halo 3? The horror! Halo 2 was a more appealing looking game for its time.

    EDIT: Further, I'll go on to say that Halo 2 in SD or in HD (in TMCC), Johnson and Miranda are much less ugly than Halo 3. Johnson turned old and white and Miranda turned into the elephant man in H3. What happened?

  • Judge allows lawsuit over Killzone Shadow Fall's 1080p graphics to proceed

    @man.the.king Then I'm surprised the money grubbing bastard isn't trying to take Eurogamer to court as well.

    @number1024

    I still can't understand anyone who takes the issue of resolution this far, i mean, you buy a game because you want to play it, not based on resolution. Sony doesn't sell you the game on the resolution, they may boast about what the console can do but no one should take that at face value.
    The guy is an asshat who's trying to steal a buck. If it wasn't this it would be something else.

    @jabberwocky Fine, but they also provided entire multiplayer footage, which means he could have deduced the just how "native" the resolution actually was for himself before ever purchasing the title.

    Also, did he buy the title at launch or did he preorder?

  • TPoppaPuff 18/12/2014

    I hate people. This is a terrible, dumb, stupid lawsuit and is the reason the economy is constantly in the shitter. At any point did Sony say the entire game runs at native 1080p/60? Then his argument is null. This is just going to lead to companies never divulging anything technical about their games in the future for fear of frivolous lawsuits. Then when it comes to me, gaming enthusiast, I no longer have any idea which version of the game runs better. Do I buy on PS4 or X1? Who knows, because now no studio will say anything about resolution and framerates ever again. Now I'm going to have to constantly preorder two copies and have to constantly return one.

    Further, as of time of release on PS4, Killzone was one of the few games that had 1080 lines of resolution in any capacity. If the graphics were well, well above average for the PS4, much moreso than consoles in general, then how could the graphics be subpar?

  • TPoppaPuff 18/12/2014

    @bombjack2 I quite enjoyed it as well as it was one of the year's best games. With that said, you could definitely see and feel the game's hitches and judder. It was still so much better than the vast majority of games out there that even in spite of the technical hiccups the core game design behind it was superb.

    I'm not sure how exactly guarded EG's scoring system works in relation to 10/10s to be honest. Is it one of the greatest games of all time? No. Is it one of the top ten percentile games released that year? Absolutely. I guess it all depends on what that scale actually means. How many 10/10s do they typically dole out per year?

    The one good thing that nobody ever brings up from the last generation's extended life is that developers in general have gotten a lot more efficient. The extended life has forced developers to take a look at the code and forced them to get more out of the hardware they're given. Algorithms have been forced to get as lean and fast as possible. There has never been such a huge discrepancy between beginning of life graphics and end of life graphics on consoles as there has been today. We slowly took a generational jump in graphics without changing the hardware, and all of gaming has benefited from it. Gaming on a laptop used to be a complete joke or restricted to very old games. Now, gaming on laptops can be just as viable as gaming on a desktop with just a couple kickbacks to the sliders. Yes, the technology has improved just like it inevitably does, but I feel the leap in graphical fidelity is far beyond the technical leap we've made in that time. The extended life of the consoles essentially took away the crutch of evolving technology. All these far more efficient rendering techniques and mapping and shaders and the like all come from the fact that everyone had to learn to work with what they've got.

    Yes at this point with the new generation here, last gen ports are essentially just being pushed out the door, but the fact that some of these games are even coming out at all is a miracle in itself and a testament to how much knowledge has been learned these last few years.

    I'm not saying I want this generation to last another decade or anything, nor do I honestly think it will, but it's good for the industry to have gone through this at least once. It's made gaming as a whole better and more refined, including PC and mobile.

  • New Steam controller design leaked

  • TPoppaPuff 18/12/2014

    @goodgreenganja
    You'd be absolutely right if you threw in "for anything except for first person shooters, MOBAs, RTS, etc.".
    Well, you forgot to mention that all those games have been tried on Steam controllers and the feedback was not very high, remember? Now, unless the entire technology behind the trackpads has gone a complete overhaul, which it doesn't look like it has, then we can still assume that a lot of what made the Steam controller still unique in July is still the same. And just like the current controllers they are great for anything except for FPSes, MOBAs, RTSes, etc. ;-)

  • TPoppaPuff 18/12/2014

    I said this back in July and I'll say it again because it appears true again: It's almost as if we're watching Valve realize that maybe console manufacturers do in fact know what they are doing with controllers despite Valve's inferred statements to the contrary.

    I just hope they make a good controller worth purchasing over a 360 controller. We'll see.

  • Advanced Warfare sales 27 per cent below Ghosts in the US

  • TPoppaPuff 13/12/2014

    Advanced Warfare is essentially paying for the sins of Ghosts. Franchise fatigue has certainly set in, but I think it's safe to say that if Ghosts wasn't such a shit-show, AW's sales wouldn't have dropped over a quarter more than its predecessor in sales. I'd bet this one has a better tail than Ghosts. Reply +5

  • Tekken 7's chief developer doesn't take kindly to mixed Lucky Chloe reaction

  • TPoppaPuff 10/12/2014

    @MesonW Except that they are because nobody has to have the exact same handle on every forum and most actually don't. And if they get pestered too much, they can go and criticize the game on a different forum. And three years from now when we're talking about Tekken 8, assuming there's a Tekken 8, those same people can complain about the game again and not take any criticism for complaining three years ago either. This is not something that will haunt them wherever they go.

    Again, all this really does is unrightfully punish those who do want the character and give more power to those who troll. How many Xbots will pose as Sony fanboys try to pull this crap on a Sony exclusive and vice versa?

    No thanks, second or third-tier fighting franchise.

    This isn't a licensed character with a host of different licensing issues and legal problems. There's no excuse. All characters for all regions.

    EDIT: I see at least two people here are in favor of region locking the characters and also therefore on-disc DLC. Are those people also fans of kicking babies as well?

  • Destiny alert: this week's Nightfall and Heroic strikes are locked behind The Dark Below DLC

  • TPoppaPuff 09/12/2014

    I bought the deluxe edition with the season pass inside. With that said, this is scummy and shameless. What fun I had found in the game has been muddled and buried under pathetic and disgusting tactics and business practices. It will be a long while before I buy another Bungie product.

    PS. And no, I will not blame Activision for Bungie's mess. They had 5 years and $250m+ to spend on building this game and get it done on time. It was already pushed back near a year once before. Call of Duty sells the silliest, dumbest skins on the market, but they never block people out from content they already purchased like the weekly strikes and nightfalls. They padded out their game by forcing you to reset all your weapons and gear which were randomly dropped with poor odds to begin with. These heinous tactics can only be found in Destiny and nowhere else. Bungie deserves the blame, not Activision.

    @Llort Of course some were trolling. Everyone is trolled and misrepresents a group to some degree. Welcome to the internet. The fact that the one person you mention is the outlier is the issue. Unless the vast vast vast majority are coming from posers and trolls, it's still associating with the genuine, terrible people who honestly associate with GamerGate.

    Your analogy is broken. Race isn't something you opt into. You're born the race you are. People weren't born into GamerGate. Now, instead of saying black we instead turned it into self-proclaimed say Juggalos started sending death threats and then those others who claim to be Juggalos start defending their actions, then yes the reputation is well earned.

    You ignore the larger number of people who support GamerGate that are also sending needles, death threats, etc.

    @Llort Those people who harass others and send death threats associate themselves with GamerGate. Others who associate themselves with GamerGate defend their actions or try to make excuses or defend them. GamerGate is built on the ramblings of a jealous ex.

    If you care about the things you're talking about, you and the other like-minded individuals should not defend GamerGate. Find a name that wasn't born tainted. That name and the acts of evil already associated with it isn't worth killing the call to progress you keep mentioning.
