  • Bethesda's Creation Club: the fallout

  • Vixremento 13/12/2017

    Ultimately the mods have to be something really special for me to care about especially considering that I'd have to pay money for them (that is I'm hardly cared about spending money on actual DLC).

    Perhaps it would help if the game was actually engaging enough to to make me want to return. Sure, I had fun in the most recent Fallout but it wasn't anything near enough to make me even consider going back to for at least a few years (unlike a good old AC2/Brotherhood or even New Vegas).

    Anyway I'm not anti the whole paid mod thing but at the same time they have to realise that I'm happy to try something funky for free but I'm very unlikely to pay for something of this sort unless it delivers several additional hours of content (a set of horse armour can kiss my arse!).

    Sounds like something really awesome to have as a pottie...uhm strike that I mean portable evil beast that you can take with you anywhere (who doesn't like their addictions that they can take with anywhere, anytime without notice).

    Question though as I haven't read up much (or anything) on it: Can the switch version load up mods? I'm probably asking for too much but if it could I would buy the console and a copy of this right now! Without mods though it would feel rather bland (that run speed is the pits alone so don't get me started on what else it needs especially if it's not your first time).

  • Why I think big console game sales are down

  • Vixremento 30/11/2016

    gamers are more willing to hold off at launch because they've been burned by countless broken games
    Regardless of platform this has to be one of the biggest factors hurting them now. The worst part is that it's only going to get worse with more and more games forcing an always-online connection (looking at you Steep) and with that forced updates whenever the devs decide to push one out (looking at you Blizzard and if I have to bitch about PC then you too Valve).

    Gaming has evolved with the times but at the same time it feels like I've just been screwed over more. I'm probably getting too old to keep up (or just too wise) but screw them for making our lives more difficult and expensive at the same time (WTF happened to force almost ALL games to require day one patches and still be broken when just out the gate?).

  • Dishonored 2 developer's pro-tips are really useful for those who struggle with stealth

  • Vixremento 11/11/2016

    I moved into cover and then lea..lea...leane....leaned. I looked out of cover to see where the guards were patrolling and spotted the next bit of cover that I'd be moving to. I qui...qui...quick...quickly ran to again and decided to lea..lea...leane....lean again to make sure now one else had entered the room.

    All was good except I'd missed that alternate pathway before that was hidden from my previous cover so I quickly cha...char...cha...charg...charged towards it to gain access to a nice and tidy little room close by. Safe! Not quite, I'd been spotted so it was time for some sword-play. I bl...blo...bloc..b...blocked and then st...str...stru...ALT + F4.

    I jest of course, my internet is so slow I'll only be able to play it tomorrow to see for myself (sadly fitting I guess) but I'm hoping it doesn't actually play out as I've described above. Not from what I've read so far about the PC port though.

  • No, you don't need PlayStation Plus for No Man's Sky

  • Vixremento 25/07/2016

    Well I for one am still concerned that it's not actually a game I intend to buy just yet. There appears to be a lot of interesting aspects to it but at the same time there is a lot to make me personally feel that I'd get bored with it very soon (patience and a hefty amount of good reviews will rectify that though).

    Although multiplayer is of almost zero interest in any game to me personally these days I would have to say that paying a subscription for multiplayer interaction of any kind is just something I'd never do no matter how many "free" bobbles get thrown in with said subscription especially when it's free right now on my platform of choice anyway. Perhaps my many years of "rental" with World of Warcraft didn't help to make me appreciate these sort of services which is effectively the same thing with the "free" bits ain't it?...enjoy it now but stop paying and lose access until you fork over more again.

    Good thing this then doesn't require the sub for those keen on jumping in with a PS4, may you discover many planets named after my palms favourite friend!

  • Uncharted 4 continues to look fantastic

    Crap I still need to finish the 2nd and 3rd games on me trusty old PS3 (yes they're platinums but far cheaper than when new plus the bits of 3D in the 3rd one helped me justify my TV cost a little):
    - Dust off PS3
    - Find one of my many controllers and charge it
    - Wait for some stuff to download most likely (or just fire it up offline I guess)
    - Find my 3d glasses and dust them off
    - Play and complete (HA!).
    - Consider buying a PS4 for a while longer so that I can get more aiming fun with a controller (NOT!). lol.

  • Konami closes LA studio responsible for Metal Gear Online

  • Vixremento 03/11/2015

    I just don't know. It really is a mixed bag. On the one hand people losing their jobs is super sad (and they really didn't do a bad job on the actual production even if I've not bothered with their online component whatsoever). On the other hand the game (this is just my opinion) is pretty over-rated for what it actually is - most likely because I'm not into that sort of oddball stuff mixed in with some stuff that I really enjoyed (so yeah, good on the one shoulder and evil on the other I guess and sorry for you if you get caught in the wrong alley proclaiming such a thing).

  • The new Need for Speed remembers what's great about the series, but why is it always online?

  • Vixremento 02/11/2015

    @bighairybear65 I still play SSX, SSX Tricky and SSX 3 (granted via emulation since my PS2 died quite some time ago) but all off of original discs. I never wanted online back then (but perhaps it's because I wasn't part of the Dreamcast crowd?).

    I play quite a few of my PS3 games to this day still because they just friekin' work. I just don't trust PS4 (the PS+ requirement for any online interaction turns me off and yes while they offer "free" games I only have the time to play cherry picked games).

    Anyway you're right - life is too short so I'll just give this one a skip and rather play my mint copy of NFS Underground 2 on PC again (because it just works).

  • The Ł33 Batman: Arkham Knight Season Pass

  • Vixremento 28/04/2015

    @abeeken Spot on. The prices go up, the amount of content locked behind a paywall and the pre-requisite to pre-order to get something extra special has just left a sour taste in my mouth (it tastes like the inside of a motor-mechs glove!).

    Adopt a new console early on and you'll pay premium prices for the hardware and the games and just sometimes you'll be saddened by the lack of actual innovation in the first years worth of games. No, you'll instead be slapped with a few re-makes that make you feel your money is worth it (copping out for perhaps two or three times for the same friekin' game).

    Anyway I will gladly wait this one out as they just haven't made it appealing to me (or my preferred format) in any way whatsoever at all.

  • Grand Theft Auto 5 PC release date delayed yet again

  • Vixremento 24/02/2015

    Oh thank you Rockstar, your attention to quality PC releases is known across that land. Your joyous words: "As a gesture of thanks for your understanding, we will grant anyone who has pre-ordered the game an additional $200,000 in-game cash for use in GTA Online." have not only moved me in a new direction but they have also made me realise that all I wanted was more free money for useless shit I care little about.

    Yeah I know I should be patient for the definitive version (we've ALL been telling each other that for friekin' months now) but it's starting to really wear a little thin right about now.

    I'm rather enjoying the game (picked it up later than everyone else I guess but I had to be sure). The only thing I can say for sure (but just for me personally) is that there is just no way I'd be enjoying this as much while playing with a controller (don't get me wrong, I enjoy using a controller for a lot of of games on my console and PC but this just would not be one of them) so that alone would be enough to put me off the console version (2nd would be price).

    Hopefully we just all get to enjoy it though regardless of platform.

    The more platforms it's available on the merrier I say. A pretty addictive game however it does require some serious patience (and practice), think I'll play some more now. Clickety: ON!

  • Video: Playing Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition on PS4

  • Vixremento 08/07/2014

    You know I actually think the console gamers will get the better deal out of this in the long run (provided Blizzard actually keeps it up to date even if their patches are a little less frequent than the PC version). Why you ask? Well easy - because it has the one feature that they originally said would ship with the PC version that they then went back on: offline play. Since they don't care about cheats, duping, whatever on console then why should they care about it on PC (especially now that the RMAH has been axed)? Not that I care about cheating however I do care about offline play even if my character(s) are kept purely offline.

    Anyway I've not bothered with the "expansion" (really it seems like a bit of an overpriced POS that delivers what should have been delivered originally yet for almost the full price of a new game) and I'll not bother with DIII in any way ever again so long as they keep that always online requirement.

    My only regret is that I bought the original DIII to start off with (hype and all that).

    I would love it if they could release some kind of single-player equivalent of this - that way I could take my time to try and get the most of it without lag and these bot thingies.

    I guess I'll have to wait for the next true expansion or just replay Skyrim with some of those fantastic mods the community has been busy with (i.e. Oblivion and Morrowind in the Sykrim engine). Ah well...I guess they'll learn the long and hard way.

    @TazerFan yeah it's a bit odd but still something I think we can live with...especially when compared to some of the other systems out there.

    As an example try using the comments over at PCGamer (well I use the US one normally). They're completely screwed up - I open an article and it shows me as logged off in the comments section - I then click on the "Latest Comments" tab and then back on the "Popular comments" and it then recognises me as logged on). I won't even mention their main page being a POS that tries to load stuff only when I scroll to it...

    Oh and then there's the "My Little Pony" friendly version of Disqus these days that now doesn't even display negative votes anymore (because people obviously have feelings and no one can ever lose in the race lol). Nope - I like these comments still that have the power to bury the crappier idiotic comments that just aren't welcome.

  • Digital Foundry vs. inFamous: Second Son

  • Vixremento 27/03/2014

    After having played the original two games on the PS3 and then reading many, many different opinions on this I have to say that I'm still a little worried that too many people have those "I've got the new and shiny - must have rose tinted glasses on" reactions at this point.

    So from what I've gathered is this: it looks great, the world itself is a bit lifeless (not unlike the original two games) and it plays mostly like the original two games.

    Is it worth it to dive into the "next-gen" for this alone for us that haven't taken the plunge yet? I honestly have no idea but with the price of the PS4 and this game at the moment (and not really much else garnering my interest) it just isn't a justifiable option for me yet. It does however bode well for the next few months where we will hopefully get some more appealing games coming along that make it a move to lust for as opposed to a move to "get in with the hype" for.

  • How the Batmobile opens up Arkham Knight's next-gen Gotham

  • Vixremento 27/03/2014

    Really glad that Rocksteady are bringing us a new game in the series after Arkham City and Arkham Asylum. I was very cautious with Arkham Origins but eventually gave in (hype and all that) and ended up just not enjoying it quite as much (some nice little bits and pieces coupled with some really horrible pieces a.k.a. most of the boss fights that felt like a step back when you were expecting something more like from the originals).

    In the end though they already have my money but I really hope that we don't have to wait a month or so for the PC version to release for the so called "optimisations" which we really know are just cooling off periods to give the consoles a go for a month or so beforehand of some sales.

  • Seasons and ladders coming to Diablo 3

  • Vixremento 25/03/2014

    I like that they're putting some serious effort into it and not just writing it off as a failed attempt at a genuine game in the series.

    However at the same time I'm holding out as this expansion actually costs more than what I paid for the original base game (right after the initial release of D3) plus I promised myself that I wouldn't be caught in that same trap (and hype) again (i.e. having purchased a game and not being able to play it because of server/connection issues).

    For now I'll just tinker every now and then with the original...the newest patch prior to the expansion has been great but not quite enough to convince me to jump at this just yet...oh and just to add I dislike the always online requirement (the last two days well especially Sunday were laggy days that reminded me again of why I dislike the online requirement), that plus I almost always play alone or with someone on my very own local LAN (which it correctly detects but yet still lags with thanks no doubt to the server communication required).

  • inFamous: Second Son review

  • Vixremento 20/03/2014

    Torn really...well at least I was. You see I don't have a PS4 yet (only because I don't feel the games justify buying one just yet for me personally) however when this was starting to tick closer to release I was really starting to feel that itch (especially being a fan of the previous two games). Now though I believe I can wait it out a little longer (and my wallet will smile for just a bit more) and hopefully then pick this up as a platinum or something when I do eventually decide to pick up a PS4.

    So a bit bummed it wasn't something that mixed things up a bit however at the same time I guess I still don't have a valid (or at least justified) reason for getting a PS4 yet

    At the same time though I have to wonder - what would they do if Rockstar came out swinging tomorrow (or anytime within the next few weeks) with a release date for the PC version of GTA V (and even a PS4/XBone version) at around the same time? Unlikely, sure - but it would it make for interesting times? You betcha!

    Okay so looking forward to see what the reviews say about this post release...I was excited about it last year and while perhaps not at the same excitement levels now I am still excited (just far more cautious - it was never going to be a pre-order anyway).

    As for the graphics downgrade it appears to have gotten - sure graphics don't make the game but for me the fact that we were teased with a fillet and then presented with chuck just makes it hurt a little. Excellent reviews will allow them to get away with most of this however excellent reviews on top of stellar graphics (at least on PC for me personally) will make it all the sweeter (why not have a nice looking game that is also actually a good game?).

  • The next-gen Digital Foundry PC: chasing the 1080p60 dream

  • Vixremento 08/03/2014

    Thanks for the article - I think it answers a question that a lot of us already knew the answer to.

    To be honest I think there are two groups of console purchasers - those that buy consoles because it doesn't require any effort to build a machine/check on up the specs before buying a pre-built machine and those that are more hardcore fans of consoles from past experiences (including fans of console-exclusive franchises).

    I don't blame purchasers of consoles for these reasons because some exclusives kinda force one to own a PC and a console if you really want the best of both worlds (even worse now when you have to own two or three consoles in addition to a PC if you really want access to all of the potentially good games released). I do however dislike the fact that console games (apart from generally being poorer in performance when compared to a current PC) cost so much and come with restrictions before allowing you to play online, forced firmware updates before installing new games, loss of backwards compatibility when moving from one version of the console to the next, limitations such as not allowing you to play your own music (*on most games anyway), etc. Oh that and that they bar seems to be set lower than what it could have been had most of these titles being developed for PC first and then ported to console instead of the other way around.

    Now this doesn't make me a one-platform only gamer (there were some really great games on the PS3 that I am glad that I got to play) but it does however make me wait a little longer before adopting these new consoles right now especially when the current game libraries are somewhat lacking (in my opinion of course).

  • Frictional releases new trailer, details about Soma

    It's important that the game is constantly drenching the player in storytelling
    Sure...but please don't make it anything like Dear Esther or Amnesia: A machine for pigs where we simply move along a linear path and actually don't do anything else. I want to interact more inside my game world then just stroll through it otherwise I'm just not enjoying it (I've finished The Dark Descent at least three times now so my concern here is that Soma may be simplified/toned a bit too much only to be more accessible).

    The only concern that I have is that they may delay the PC release by a month or so again like they did with Arkham City - other than that I have no happy little piggy (hoping for a wonderful bit of sequences like they had with some of their villains from the first game - you know which one I'm talking about).

  • Games of 2013: Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs

  • Vixremento 23/12/2013

    As a fan of The Dark Descent I was amped for A Machine for Pigs...sadly it let me down big time. However at least it also taught me a lesson - don't pre-order your games based on their predecessors (oh and nothing made by The Chinese Room seems to be very interactive a.k.a. an actual game).

    This one is probably my biggest letdown of the year because I just expected so much more. S.O.M.A is sadly going to have to wait for a few reviews before I bite even though it looks pretty good (negatives it has going are: heavy focus on console and also A Machine For Pigs - they should never have let that be 'outsourced' and they won't be easily forgiven for it).

  • Microsoft plots Windows updates codenamed "Threshold"

  • Vixremento 03/12/2013

    You know this makes me think of something that I just recently stumbled on. Let me start from the beginning...I purchased a Lego Mindstorms EV3 as a gift to myself (because I deserve it...and it's fun!) and one of the things I came across while scouring the web was a Windows API for interacting with your "brick". Turns out the one I came across was a whole "Windows 8" thing that had me a little turned off (sure I work on Windows 8 but my home desktop isn't nearly ready to touch it...mostly because it's fugly) however I downloaded it and found that at it's core I could just exclude all the Windows 8/phone-specific crap because the real core of it all was just a bunch of API calls all wrapped up neatly anyway).

    So in the end...why would I care about Windows 8? Had they at least included the Aero theme thingies (you know, the stuff that actually made your desktop look cool in Windows 7 with that transparency) then I may have switched (together with my trusty ol' Start button helper of course!) but now I just don't see any benefit to jumping ship on my personal desktop (I guess it's a blessing that I can continue to use both at the moment to compare though...).

  • How the Amnesia sequel's sausage was made

  • Vixremento 27/11/2013

    Sadly as a big fan of the Amnesia: The Dark Descent I just couldn't enjoy A machine for pigs....but perhaps it's because I'm more about game-play and game mechanics required to actually get through the game and less about story (especially when it's primary focus is on story and not much else).

    I do get that maybe most people never finished The Dark Descent however I've played through it twice (at least) and thoroughly enjoyed the puzzles and fear that it instilled. Did I feel this way with A Machine for Pigs? Quite honestly, hell no - not even close :(

    At least this taught me another lesson...don't rely on the name of a game ESPECIALLY when it's handed over to another dev (and quite honestly I should have known based on Dear Esther alone...). On the up side it seems that at least a few people enjoyed this "game" so I guess that's at least something.

    This is still a game that understands that real horror comes from disempowerment, and from the unseen, unknown and unexplained. A game that manages to breed powerful terror from winding corridors and empty rooms, never once relying on monster closets and only rarely on jump scares. And on the handful of occasions that A Machine for Pigs does try something a bit different, it's as amazing as anything in the first game.
