    RAGE was a brilliant game with stunning tech. My favourite last gen FPS.
    RAGE was a distinctly average game with pretty good tech. Happy Christmas!

    @aros
    Absolutely disgusting attitude - "Ban everything I don't like!" - a total indictment of the braindead mongs that make up modern society...
    It's not a question of censorship or banning things you don't like. As others have pointed out, it's one outlet refusing to stock it. Let me ask you this though... do you personally feel that anything and everything that CAN be made, SHOULD be made?

    I'm not trying to make a moral high ground statement here, I'm just curious to understand. Sometimes, in the wake of trying to exercise liberal freedom, it's easy to gloss over what might actually be healthy or unhealthy for society.

    I know nothing about the game but is there any context or point the developer is trying to make with this game? Or is it just a game about murdering people for no reason? Genuine question... Reply 0
  • Video: Why you might not want to pre-order The Order

  • TelexStar 12/12/2014

    @MTM2
    Why does this article exist?

    Kind of low EG to dampen people's feeling's towards this specific game, you could've made a broad 'don't pre-order' games article but decided to single this out as an example.

    It's clear that Ian doesn't like the Order, that's absolutely fine but don't start trying to dampen the positivity others may hold for the title - that's just poisonous to the industry.
    What? This is one of the most silly things I've read in a long time (sorry but it is).

    Firstly, this is Ian's opinion on a preview build of a game which he's played. Secondly, how can receiving inside information on a games progress before you shell out your cash, possibly be a poisonous thing?

    Also, to the people calling EG out to be bullshit. Again, this is one guys opinion on things. Just like reviews are. Just because Ian doesn't like (or does like) a game. Doesn't mean someone else at EG should. Does it?

    The fact that they're citing three patches to get the PC K+M controls into usable shape tells you all you need to know in this respect.

    The game has some issues but in my opinion, the good stuff FAR outweighs any of issues. Inquisition is a ****ing glorious RPG in pretty much all respects. Interesting combat, excellent and funny dialog and huge, intoxicating environments that drip with history. I adored DA: Origins and this, for me, is exactly the kind of sequel I wanted to play. I'm looking forward to hopefully seeing some content along the lines of Origins' Awakening. Reply +3

    This makes no sense. I downloaded the 1.14gb patch yesterday without a problem but I couldn't transfer my save (presumably because I hadn't used GTAO since 2013). I then saw on their support ticket about the issue that they issued an emergency patch. I checked this morning but no patch. Now though I can transfer my save. So what was the 1.14gb patch for exactly? Reply 0

  • Who needs games: PlayStation 4's first year

  • TelexStar 15/11/2014

    I really don't agree with the premise of this article. I bought the PS4 at launch and to this day, at no point, have I been without a game that I wanted to play and enjoy. I don't know about anyone else but I found the twilight years of the last generation to be over saturated with releases. It was getting to the point where there was simple too much on the shelves I wanted to play. Some might say this was a good position to be in but honestly, too much choice *can* be a bad thing. I've personally really enjoyed the slower pace of releases this gen. It's given me time to enjoy a game for longer than a 1-2 week window in which I felt compelled to squeeze the life out of a game before the next hot release came out.

    I hope this pace continues to be honest.

  • Dragon Age: Inquisition review

  • TelexStar 11/11/2014

    @Mr_Git
    The Korra reference made me smile. Glad it doesn't have brash DLC, I stopped playing Origins quite a way in once I waltzed into an area only to be pulled into the store to spend real money.
    I'm not one of those "oh I'll buy and play this in a year when all the DLC is included" types but for whatever reason I never got round to playing DA: O for over a year or so later, by which time all the DLC was included. I have to say it's probably one of the finest RPG's + DLC I've ever enjoyed. It's a shame that wasn't the game people experienced on launch.

  • Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and Call of Duty: Ghosts block PS4 Share Play

  • TelexStar 07/11/2014

    @dogmanstaruk
    Shareplay is really for kids who can't afford to purchase the games they want. Adults on the other hand have more flexible budgets.
    I don't know about you but the concept of trying something before you buy seems pretty sensible if you have the option available, no? It has nothing to do with "being for kids" or what you can afford. If you've been brought up to have a sense of treating money responsibly, it just makes sense that this feature is pretty good.

    Shareplay also has other benefits besides just "try before you buy". When used in viewing mode, it has very little delay, unlike Twitch. I've had a couple of sessions where I shared my Alien: Isolation game with a friend and he was able to watch and react/laugh at my miss-fortune, pretty much in real time. It was a hell of a lot of fun actually. :)

    @bleeder Diablo 3 does indeed work. I tried it with a mate and he said the latency was barely noticeable. Diablo 3 treats the shared controller like a local one so will switch the game into LAN play mode allowing you to play alongside your friend. It's pretty neat if you want to show the game off and play with them. Reply +3

  • Destiny launch almost triples monthly US PlayStation 4 sales

    Why are people so focused on which platform has more exclusive games?

The latter can happily throw themselves under a bus for all I care. Reply -1

  • DriveClub dev "had confidence" servers would work

  • TelexStar 13/10/2014

    @Aretak
    You just don't get these kind of problems with Xbox Live. Even Live back in the days of the original Xbox was better than PSN in 2014. It's a real shame that Sony are so incompetent when it comes to providing reliable online services.
    Don't be such a buffoon! XBL for most of it's life has been peer to peer with no dedicated servers involved. Remember the days of Halo 2 online and Gears of War where the player/host would quit? Now cast your memory back more recently to the launch of Battlefield 1943 (XBL), Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4. All of which utilised dedicated servers and all of which had massive launch problems, on ALL PLATFORMS.

    I'm not defending Evolution or Sony here but let's call a spade a spade before you start shovelling shit with it.

  • The patch helps, but Destiny still has a loot problem

  • TelexStar 02/10/2014

    @vast
    Sorry but this article is utter tripe. [SNIP]
    The article is an editorial.... it's an opinion piece. That's all. It's not presenting anything as fact so not sure why you're so on your high horse about it.

    For all that Destiny does right, it is still a complete grind, post level-20. A grind that tires somewhat after a while. Destiny is an incredibly accomplished shooter (as you'd expect from Bungie) but as a loot-driven game, it's amateurish and needs plenty of work in my opinion.

    There is another video around where they talk about a lot of the weapon designs and they show more footage of gameplay. I'm a sucker for games with interesting weaponry, which is why I enjoyed the Resistance games.
    Do you happen to have a link?

    I'm totally with you on interesting weapon design. There's an untapped market in FPS' and 3P shooters for this kind of design mechanic. Too many shooters focus on giving players more ways to merely do damage but forget about designing enemies that require different weapons to kill.

    @cloudskipa Ignoring the other Colin McRae games, the Rallisport series had pretty extensive mud and car damage effects, especially for the period...
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPbd5yAzHXw

    WRC Rally games too...
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zHjf9_LFN0

    The "Dirt" series too although technically under the same blanket as Colin McRae i guess. I don't know... how many more examples do you want before it becomes valid? [edit] found clip - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Krx4QLSGSlQ#t=133

    Of course, I'm sure the effects in FH2 are probably way better. I'm just saying it's not a new thing. It's not as evident these days because rally games have been driven into near obscurity in favour of super cars and road racing.

    I'm certainly not going to argue that a game 10 years ago models the effect better than a game being released next week. Just that the effect has been modelled by various driving games for years.

    @PSfourskin Hang on. I didn't say anywhere that I disapproved of anyone liking the game you loon. You can like what you like. In fact, I even said I thought it looked like fun (did you read that bit? Or just skip over it?)

    I just wanted to point out that wizz-bang mud effects on cars have been around for yonks so when Mr cloudskipa felt the need to tout that as an amazing new development for driving games, along with super hot cloud density weather simulations, it's not actually a new thing.

    What's amusing is that had this exact same driving game been on a sony console, I've no doubt he'd be pointing out how the weather droplets on windscreens don't react or roll up the windscreen when driving at speed or how the shadow's cast by the sun, move quite choppily according to other reviews.

    Like I said though, the game does look like a hell of a lot of fun (genuinely). I loved the PGR series and taking out a vineyard in a Landrover would be on my tick list of things to do in a game. :)

    ... or the way that mud gradually builds on the car body and tyres and is washed off by the rain.
    I'm not saying FH2 isn't any good (it does look like fun) but I feel the need to point out that mud has been building up on cars in driving games since Colin McRae Rally on the PSX.

    By all means though, carry on full steam on your hype train. I didn't mean to interrupt.

  • TelexStar 23/09/2014

    @BigDannyH It's not strictly locked out content. Well, I wouldn't call it that. It's the same content but just set at harder difficulties which you can't attempt until you hit a certain level.

    I am enjoying the game personally but I'm not sure I'm a big fan of the idea of levelling tied into random loot drops. It doesn't reward experience, just grind.

    I remember reading something about the min level for doing the raid, so I can understand people trying to get to the extra content, but is there another reason I'm missing?

    I've read a lot of complaints about the grind post level 20 but can't figure out while people don't just stop trying to level up from there. You don't have to stop playing but no need to grind.
    It's not just the raids that are locked out. You're also locked out of the high difficulties (because they're locked by level) for all the other repeatable missions and strikes too. Basically, grinding for better gear to increase your light level IS all about playing more content.

    Anyone know what is in the basement in old Russia? Popped down there to find ?? level mobs so I quickly ran back out - I wonder what level they are, perhaps level 20.
    I went down there yesterday and they're level 18. Eventually beat them (at level 17) and found there's fuck all in there. Very disappointing. I'm enjoying the game but there's a complete lack of context to any of the enemies you're fighting in this game. It's just a random collection of spawning mobs dotted around with no real reason for being there. I want to love this game but it just doesn't feel very engaging in a lot of ways.
