  • Face-Off: Alien: Isolation

  • Vixremento 12/10/2014

    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.

  • OlliOlli skates to PlayStation 3 and 4 tomorrow

  • Vixremento 26/08/2014

    Clickety click click click. Hahaha - that's what sounds come from my controller with the constant tapping on the left analog stickie as I'm playing the PC version with my 360 wireless controller (only had it for a few weeks now and trying quite a few games with it...just still getting used to the offset D-Pad).

    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).

  • The Elder Scrolls Online's Craglorn update due this week

  • Vixremento 21/05/2014

    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.

    I kinda hated A Machine for Pigs for being just that that whilst I loved The Dark Descent for actually being something a bit more...you know - interactive. I'm still holding thumbs but after reading this article I'm a little less excited now (after having that excitement level first upped a bit by their underwater reveal/trailer).

  • Five-year-old discovers Xbox password flaw

  • Vixremento 04/04/2014

    @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

  • Average player takes 35-40 hours to finish Watch Dogs

  • Vixremento 17/03/2014

    Glad to hear it'll have some meat to it...hopefully it'll be enjoyable meat (I'll wait for post-release reviews just because I'm done with forking out cash for games without knowing that they'll be good).

    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!

    Now we just need Diablo III to do the same (sure, most times it's okay these days but yesterday was no fun)...well for me anyway since I don't care about online interaction with anyone (and if it's good enough for the consoles then surely...surely?). Reply +1
  • How Watch Dogs' multiplayer liberates Ubisoft's open world

  • Vixremento 13/03/2014

    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

  • Vixremento 06/03/2014

    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).

  • Rocksteady reveals Batman: Arkham Knight in detail

  • Vixremento 05/03/2014

    Super excited - played a little of Origins but I haven't bothered finishing it (maybe I'll try again to get over what will feel like a very long wait until Arkham Knight releases).

    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 complaints...one 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.

    Online-only, subscription, multi-player...sadly these are things I don't care about (yes I'm probably just old - now get off my lawn!). Release a new title that is in line with your previous titles (Skyrim, etc.) that allow me to screw around in my own time whenever I have time and then I'll be happy to buy otherwise I could just care less (yes I didn't even watch the clip because I don't care - well I do care but not enough to pay money for this).

  • Vixremento 09/09/2013

    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.

  • Saint's Row devs not concerned by proximity to GTA 5

  • Vixremento 22/03/2013

    I wanted to like Saints Row...really I did. As much of the "over the top" bits and pieces they had I just couldn't get into it. Sure, GTA IV was far more serious than it's predecessors however at the same time I've gone back again and again (the DLC specials on Steam were worth the wait) to GTA rather than bothering with firing up SR again let alone bothering with finishing it. I guess it feels too "console" for me on PC or I'm just too stuck up on something without super crazy...(or I'm just old).

    Anyway releasing so close to GTA V is complete silly in my books - I'll rather hold out for "the real deal" and pick up the scraps on the specials trend a few months later on.

  • "Why should we ask how long a game is?"

  • Vixremento 13/03/2013

    I have to agree with bad09 here...games are interactive experiences that we want to get intimate with - we want to learn all there is about a world, a character, a set of weapons or maybe even something else. We want to play for a bit and then stop and resume later (less likely to ever want to do this with a movie).

    One last thing "Brothers is the opposite to those games - everything you see, it happens only once": well sure...that's because if it were any longer than we'd see it as being all over the place and having no focus. I wanted Dishonored to keep going (quite frankly I'd have been happy with it going on for three times longer at least.

    Just an off topic rant here - if Thief 4 includes QTE's I'm going to off myself (sorry I just watched a youtube clip on some of the mocap they're doing and after Tomb Raider I just can't help thinking this button pressing crap curse is unstoppable).

  • Nintendo Wii U review

  • Vixremento 19/11/2012

    For one this is actually a Nintendo product that I sat up and paid attention to (which is unusual for me as I have last used a Nintendo gaming console many many years ago). The second point that came across where they seemed to be focusing on was proper games instead of trying to get the casual crowds involved).

    The negatives however will be relying on existing franchises in an attempt to sell the console to me (i.e. a new Mario brothers game or something titled Nintendoland) however with something new like ZombiU I'm rather interested...well until I read reviews about it.

    So in the end I guess I love the ideas presented but yet I'm still not quite convinced enough to fork out any money for it yet...they'll have to get some real exclusive NEW content on it that actually comes highly recommended as "fun times guaranteed if you enjoy gaming". I'm holding thumbs - but at this point it looks like a Christmas season without a new Nintendo product is in my teacup. Let's hope they pull finger out early next year!

    I didn't know what to expect from this game...a lot of previews on it but being a new franchise I just wasn't sure. Now that I've read this review and a few others and also watched a few video reviews I have to say that I'm very excited about it (so much that I've just gone and pre-ordered a copy!).

    Sadly it'll only be shipped to me on Friday (even Steam states October the 12th for me so I'd rather take the cheaper physical copy from my local online retailer). Now how do I speed up time to get this week to pass by quickly?

    @IneptPercy AC2 is definitely worth a go now that you're done with the first one - especially if you can score it on sale now!

    I kinda wish I had also waited before playing any of them - would love to be in your situation now where you can take your time and enjoy the highlights of the series so far (personally I'd skip Revelations) all while paying a lot less for them.

    Sadly I'm a sucker for what I've seen on ACIII so far so it'll have to be a full price purchase (damn my impatience).

    Great to see that at least all gamers get to enjoy this on any platform they choose (well at least the most popular platforms that is anyway).

    Personally any FPS for me is a must on PC but I accept that not everyone has a machine that is capable...but with that said this looks absolutely phenomenal on my rather old GTX295 - perhaps it really can keep me happy for another year or two still (with the price of the GTX690 I guess I have little choice!).

    Anyway I'm having a blast so far - in fact I think I'll go play some more now.

    Really I tried to avoid it because of the always online requirement but yet I got suckered into it by the "hype" (I mean really the excitement levels were super high for this one).

    Anyway...no matter how you look at it Blizzard has hurt themselves with this one for me personally and I refuse to even consider any of their future titles until months post release of whatever it is that they release next (and since I've been WoW free for so long now I'm confident that I can stay Blizzard-free if required).

    Still a shame though as I'd really wanted a new 'really meaty' Diablo title that would last longer than this :(

    Absolutely can not wait for Grim Dawn. For me I was super surprised at how good Path of Exile is and it's a shocker mostly because it's online only...but free so really there is nothing to complain about there (and I really love that their shop is for cosmetic crap only - no pay to win: i.e. some think they can win by selling their stuff and others will buy stuff...many will be "disappoint" lol).

    I really can not wait for the next act in PoE as it'll tie me over until Grim Dawn comes along - both of these titles come with so much potential that I just feel my head is going to explode. I'm also looking forward to Torchlight II as it really is dirt cheap if you ask me plus it includes so many features that make it just shine. Then there's the Goliath that I wish David would kill already...

  • Silent Hill HD Collection Review

  • Vixremento 30/03/2012

    Thanks for the review.

    My pre-order has now been cancelled (was due to ship to us poor sods only on the 5th of April - thank goodness for a change so that I was able to see all of the negative aspects). After a lot of reading it would make more sense to rather get the PC versions (since I no longer have a PS2)...even if it has problems it seems as if they're nothing compared to the problems that the PS3 "HD" collection is suffering from.

    Now it may still be fairly cheap but if it has all of the bugs that I've read about then even getting it for free doesn't seem to be worth it...still a very sad day as I'd have hoped for them to do at least a half-assed job at it.

  • Torchlight 2 dev shrugs off Diablo 3 release date

  • Vixremento 19/03/2012

    Torchlight 2 and Grim Dawn for me. It is hard to not get caught up in the D3 release excitement but then I think of the forced always online that they could have made a plan for especially when it initially was going to be included (I can live with everything else). Of course I am too much of a diablo fan to write it off entirely but it's one I'll pass on at release. Reply +5
  • BioWare: we finished Mass Effect 3 before working on DLC

  • Vixremento 23/02/2012

    Horribly planned - look at the mess they've gotten themselves into. They can't now give it away for free because customers will say "you see - we told you so and now you've basically admitted it" so they're stuck in the same situation (they probably did split this out of the original game but we'll never really know the truth).

    Personally I'm grateful to have it day 1 for a more complete experience but then I would be as I've ordered the CE (I've yet to finish the first one but I've finished the second one four times now - my FemShep is ready!).

    I think they should have just announced that they were working on the DLC and that a free code would be included in the CE as a bonus but also mentioned that it would only ship a week or two after release of the game as it still had to be finished (even if this was not the case) - this would have given them the CE sales boost they were obviously looking for and also kept themselves immune from all of the rage they're having to put up with now.

  • Fallout: New Vegas dev asks fans what game they would like it to Kickstart

  • Vixremento 13/02/2012

    An interesting concept this kick-starter thing...if I could choose anything I'd take an original Syndicate remake. Also I'd expect my 'kickstart' contribution to get deducted from the purchase price of the game.

    I'd happily give $100 for an offline version of Diablo III...since they seem so snotty I gave even less than that for something else (with change to pick and and play something else too!). It's not that I dislike online that much - it's just that if I have to experience any lag, disconnects, constant forced updates, having the RMAH pushed in my face, being forced to create a social account of some sort (battletag?) then really I just couldn't care (and I don't buy into their "magic bullet lag-free play crap" - I've heard from fellow buddies that managed to somehow screw the dog of a dog of a dog that belongs to a friend of a relative of a blizz employee's friend that knows the employees auntie to get beta access and they think the lag sux even prior to their 'US 100k invite') then I just don't want to even bother (I don't want to live with it and as many many Blizz fanboys have suggested I'll play something else!).

    Phew - okay what was the topic again?

  • Amnesia: The Dark Descent follow-up teased

  • Vixremento 11/02/2012

    I would love a follow up to this. This was one of the few games where I found I was actually lowering my head behind my screen because I was just so petrified...staring into a dark corner in game and just keeping as quiet as I could (both in game and behind my keyboard). Reply +1
