    @MrTomFTW I really want this thread to be more about Audioslave than this game because its Monday and I'm bored. Reply +6

    @MrTomFTW I habe no interest in MOBAs but I'll stay for the Audioslave chat. I like them. They were just different enough from Rage to be worth it but it became obvious they had no idea where to go with their music in the second and third albums. Reply +3

  • Editor's blog: I am sexist

  • Unclebenny 19/06/2014

    Just a quick one as im on my phone at work.

    Like you, tom, i dont believe most of these dismissive comments come from a deep seared misogony. However i don't really think they are all reactionary either. A lot of straight white men just dont get what its like to be persucuted in whatever way, to whatever degree for something you can't control. They therefore dont see it as a problem wworthy of attention.

    While i dont agree with everything you wrote I think its very important that someone is out there writing these pieces and making the industry and community think.

  • Gitaroo Man retrospective

  • Unclebenny 04/08/2013

    Yes! One of my favourite games ever. I've got the CD soundtrack sat at home somewhere. I could never get past the third boss on the rock hard mose though, I decided that was obviously designed for people in the future when genetic manipulation was commonplace.

    My personal favourite track was the crazy rock opera with the slightly worrying organ player.

  • Jurassic Park mod would be impressive even without John Williams' score

  • Unclebenny 03/01/2013

    Fun fact- Velociraptors were mis- named in the film. Actual Velociraptors were the size of medium sized dogs. What is in the film is Deinonychus or Utahraptors or something similar. Hopefully Deinonychus, my personal favourite dinosaur. Whats yours? Reply 0
  • Call of Duty and Guitar Hero offline due to Hurricane Sandy

  • Unclebenny 31/10/2012

    Don't comment often but what the hey, stupidity levels are high enough to force my hand.

    How people think its appropriate to wish for more hurricanes to knock down the servers for a game, I assume from their comments, they don't even play is baffling. Thats ignoring the much bigger issue that peoples lives and business's were ruined by this hurricane.

    I shouldn't be surprised by stupidity on the internet but maybe I wish more of us expected more of ourselves and others.

    If you don't like COD, fine. If you you do like it, fine. Why can't people enjoy something without being prejudiced against by self important morons with agendas against anything popular.

    Good review, annoyingly put up just after my own review. Mock shaken fists ensue. Very well written though. I get the feeling I wasn't as displeased with the game as you but I can totally understand your viewpoint. Reply 0
  • Halo 3

  • Unclebenny 21/08/2010

    I think you get the general vein of why halo is so popular completley right. I'm also glad you admit bias right at the start, not that the internet is the kind if place where people would make accusations or anything.

    P.S. Your writing makes me feel like I almost know you.

  • Linkin Park single debuting in MOH

  • Unclebenny 28/07/2010

    I like Linkin Park. I'm 24. I dont think they fit into a game that is trying to give a serious portrayal of a current conflict that actually affects millions of people around the world. Then again which band would.

    Polyphonic Spree anybody?

  • Alan Wake

  • Unclebenny 05/05/2010

    Just to throw my two pence in late in the day-

    Mainly aimed at Calgon- You are fully entitled to disagree with a review. Thats kind of the point... or at least you would be entitled to disagree if you hadn't fully admitted to not even reading it due to person who wrote it.

    What a ridiculous view point. How can you spend this much time arguing about a the review and not even read it?

    If you had read it you would see that Ellie put forward a reasonable argument as to why she gave it a 7. Its a game that eventually boils down to repition of mechanics and a very cliched narrative. She obviously thinks you can enjoy it and defended the controls and combat. Once youve read the review come back and begin your debate again. Until then "I don't like this person therefore they're viewpoint is irellevant!" doesn't bloody work.

    And to all those complaining about the score of 7, try counting to ten- you'll see that half way through there is a 5. So logically an average of the numbers between one and ten is 5

    Average! 5!- Sort your lives ouy and learn to count.

    Thank you and goodnight.

  • EGTV: The Videogames Election

  • Unclebenny 29/04/2010

    I don't have a care who to vote for, as its "same shXt different arsehole" for me. All the parties are full of shit and run by cnuts.I take particular issue with this kind of statement. Do you really think all the hundreds of MP's are all basteards who got into polistics for the money and so they could screw over their fellow man? This is a stupidly cynacil view point fuelled by the over reaction to the recent expenses scandal. I'm not defending the expenses scandal and I'm not saying all politicans are squeaky clean but to refuse to vote under the delusion that it wont make a difference drives me mad. This is your best chance as a member of the public to change significant policies in this country and youre willing to throw it away in some mis- guided attempt to teach politicains a lesson. Rant over, the video was interesting. I'd like to see more game sites making reference to the rich game devlopmetn heratige this country has. Especially as we are not going to get out heavy industry back. this is a great way to get people through education and into jobs. Reply 0
  • Leona Lewis gives verdict on FFXIII

  • Unclebenny 18/02/2010

    Am i the only one who deosn't care about this? I hate the X- factor and its ilk as much as the next person (who isn't a teenage over excitable girl) but does this actually affect the "core gamer" at al?

    We all need to accept that gaming has become a much bigger buisness in the past few years, this is going to lead to irrelevant celebrity endorsements. There quite obviously not aimed at "us" though, Squarenix is trying to break into a new market. They're a buisness, its what they do (if I may indulge in some nonsense business sepak)- expand their market, break out of their box, visualise the impossible and so on.

    Maybe we should just ignore out, stop being so insular as a community and focus on how good the game is?

  • Eurogamer.net Podcast launches!

  • Unclebenny 12/01/2010

    "One thing I find when listening to podcasts is that inane chatter is actually highly entertaining. Not the whole thing, but I don't like when people try to stay on topic with a religious fixation."

    I agree, free flowing banter ceartainly lets you get an idea about what reviewers think in a more casual way than well thought out review. The dragon age bit at the start being a prime example.

    When I get round to playing dragon age I'll now know where to go to get some experimental poorly animated homoeroctic elf sex. Giving a whole new meaning to the term "uncanny valley"

    P.S. Enjoyed the banter but maybe a bit more structure might smooth things along a bit.

  • Using MW2 exploit will get Live suspension

  • Unclebenny 03/12/2009

    These arguments for "It can be done therefore why shouldn't I" are so stupid it makes my kidneys hurt.

    It's obviously cheating, the fact people have to go out of their way to defend it shows its cheating.

    "I'm not a cheater but..."

    To those who defend this kind of behaviour, why in a game of skill would take all the skill away by hiding in a rock or becoming a suicide bomber. Nothing good comes from suicide bombing. By hiding in a imprentrable rock, you just prove what a skilless and class- less player you are. Unable to get a decent kil streak unless protected by an invisble barrier.

  • Unclebenny 03/12/2009

    nuanimal- I'm not sure I understand your argument. Are you saying that because cheating is inevitable we should just accept it and get on with our lives?

    I'd wondered what was going on with this suicide bomber thing thats been going on recently. The worst thing is if you shoot them they explode. So all you can do is run away from them. Its like a metaphor for taking on armies of terrorists. Maybe not...

    I think the most important point to remember for those whop try to justify cheating/ exploiting is that you are taking a level playing field and bending it to your advantage and that is the only reason these people get such stupidly high scores. That doesn't make you a good player it just makes you a gimp. Often these people haven't even discovered these gliteches/ cheats themselves they've just heard them on a forum.

    So they were'nt being creative in the first place.

    They can read....

    I bet thats one of their few skills...
