  • Resident Evil: Revelations 2 stars Claire Redfield

  • Zyklonbzombie 08/09/2014

    @n0signal This 100% It always confuses me when people complain about Resident Evil and Dead Space "abandoning" the horror side of things, as if either franchise were particularly effective at it.

    We've only had one real dud of a numbered Resident Evil game - 6 - and even that had its moments (Leon's bit) and some ambition - and Revelations was great. I'd say I'm about as optimistic about the franchise as I ever was.

  • Google refunding $19m to those whose kids bought in-app purchases

  • Zyklonbzombie 06/09/2014

    @Kiliko People make mistakes. And if a kid racks up hundreds in microtransactions, that's an incredibly expensive consequence for something that isn't even physically consumed/broken/whatever - so the maker isn't exactly experiencing a loss.

    It doesn't hurt to have some basic empathy, you know.

  • Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's multiplayer detailed in new video

  • Zyklonbzombie 03/09/2014

    @DizzyCriminal That's actually why I'm keeping an eye on this. I reckon the Crysis titles have some of the most underappreciated multiplayers in recent memory.

    Switching between powersuit abilities was a blast. It's a pretty interesting direction for CoD to take after the snoozefest that was Ghosts.

  • Dinosaur adventure The Stomping Land removed from sale on Steam Early Access

  • Zyklonbzombie 03/09/2014

    @Canyarion I thought the Turok reboot was a pretty damned goot dinosaur game... but unfortunately one mixed up with pretty mediocre baddies-with-guns parts. Sadly, the cancelled sequel looked pretty awesome, and much more in line with the older titles :(

    I expect we'll see a lot of dinosaur games in the run up to the new Jurassic Park.

  • Why we need more developers like Zoe Quinn

  • Zyklonbzombie 30/08/2014

    I love how any article that goes against whatever gamer outrage is currently in vogue is always deemed 'click bait'.

    I'm not particularly a fan of Depression Quest, but it's part of an exciting wider trend of games branching out into uncharted territory, and developers like Zoe are important voices in that. Unfortunately, traditional "gamers" are a volatile bunch when it comes to developers, especially if said developer is a woman (and doubly so if identified as a feminist) - and here we have an interesting game swamped by an absurd overreaction to some unsubstantiated claims about this woman's private life.

  • Nintendo announces new 3DS and 3DS XL designs with extra buttons, improved CPU

  • Zyklonbzombie 29/08/2014

    Both the nub and the new Z buttons look super awkward to use. I also think "New 3DS" exclusive games will confuse a lot of more casual consumers and come too late for "gamers", who are aware that Nintendo's next proper new handheld is probably only a year or two away from announcement. Reply +5
  • GaymerX convention will return following developer donations

  • Zyklonbzombie 26/08/2014

    because sexuality has nothing to do with games.
    I keep hearing this, and it's such an arbitrary, meaningless statement.

    Firstly, sexuality doesn't have to have anything to do with games directly. The fact is, homophobia is rife in gaming culture, and sometimes it's nice for gamers to have a designated space/event where they can feel safe and open and where participants and panelists can address said homophobia without being accused of dragging an "agenda" to a non LGBT focused event.

    Secondly, LGBT rights (and equality/diversity generally) is a good cause, and one many industries are keen to recognise. GaymerX provides an avenue for devlopers and publishers to talk about how they're tackling LGBT issues or simply to show that they're supportive by turning up.

    Thirdly, LGBT characters and themes are rare in mainstream games. But games and gamers are maturing and diversifying. Sexuality, adversity and identity are hugely important facets of the human condition, and ones which games are starting to - and will continue to - explore. To say "sexuality has nothing to do with games" is simply factually incorrect, as many recent indies and even a few AAA titles have touched on LGBT topics.Maybe it's not a topic that interests you personally - but don't conflate that with meaninglessness.

    Here's the thing that all the "but sexuality doesn't matter, stop making a big deal about it!" brigade fail to realise: Most gay people will in some parts experience gaming culture and the gaming community very differently (and life, generally) than their straight counterparts do, on the basis of being LGBT. Creating a welcoming environment that acknowledges this fact isn't 'being exclusive' or 'attention seeking' or 'sectioning off' or 'standing out', or anything like that. It's just healthy human behaviour, and something minorities - or indeed any shared-experience group of people - do all the time without the majority getting their panties in a twist.

    @Noxia You realise it has always been open for everyone? But I suspect you knew that.

    No one thinks that you need to prove yourself a "gamer" to get into, say, Gamescom. But for some reason, the moment someone creates a convention aimed at LGBT issues in gaming, you get all these people claiming that they fear being barred entry upon their inability to produce a fully paid up gay-card at the door. Despite the idea being completely absurd and debunked with about 30 seconds of googling the event.

    Funny that. It's almost as if they're looking for an excuse to play victim to some imaginary evil PC-gorn-mad agenda. Almost.

    I accidentally walked into a Star Trek Convention the other day, and it made me LIVID. Why do they need a seperate convention? Why can't all TV fans go to the same one? Trekkies just think they're so damn special. They just want all the attention.

    Come to think of it, why can't everyone just attend one big non-specific convention? Wanting to be around people who share niche common interests, life experience and concerns is just sheer reverse bigotry, and I won't stand for it!

  • EA offers a free 48-hour trial of Titanfall on Origin... again

  • Zyklonbzombie 23/08/2014

    I had a good few hours of fun with titanfall, but my lasting impression was just "I can't wait for titanfall 2". It feels great to play, and some of the mechanics are very forward thinking, but in terms of aesthetic and story it lacks an identity, and it feels bare bones content wise as a result (despite having a pretty generous amount of game modes and maps).

  • Watch six minutes of Bloodborne gameplay

  • Zyklonbzombie 19/08/2014

    @sidspacewalker probably for the same reason the original Dark Souls isn't called Demon's Souls 2. Different publishers. That said, I think the game is aesthetically and gameplay wise different enough to sit comfortably on its own. I also think that if they're making a more accessible, story focused game, shoehorning the Souls title in there would backfire by pissing off fans of the franchise and by scaring off potential newcomers.

  • Battlefield 4's next big update cleans up HUD, tweaks soldier movement

  • Zyklonbzombie 08/08/2014

    @ramshot The unfortunate reality of online games becoming more complex, widespread (in terms of playerbase and hardware it's running on) and technically advanced is that no amount of QA and beta testing is 100% fullproof.

    I don't disagree that the launch had its problems (though I also think they've been blown out of proportion because the name EA is attatched) but I seriously doubt anyone let it "happen on purpose".

    I'm going to go ahead and state the unpopular view that BF4 is fantastic and that DICE should be commended for working pretty much nonstop on it since release.

    @Vanmunt Aside from the fact that recoil is more of a balancing mechanic than an attempt at realism in these games, there is a huge difference between standing braced, firing at a static object in a firing range and running around outside when it comes to the body's ability to compensate for recoil.

  • Twitch clamps down on unlicensed music ahead of rumoured $1bn Google buyout

  • Zyklonbzombie 07/08/2014

    @SarcasticJoe I think both are at naive. I find it difficult to believe that many youtubers are so ignorant of basic copyright law that they think they can broadcast (and even profit from) popular music to millions of people worldwide - regardless of whether it's accompanying original content - without running into issues.

    It's a complicated issue. I think the music industry is somewhat draconian, but I'm also aware that many artists rely almost entirely on broadcast royalties. In an age where audiences are flocking from more traditional types of media to online, user created content. It's inevitable that the industry (including all from starving artists to money hungry publishers) will object.

    I think both sides need to meet in the middle. The music industry needs to acknowledge that the internet does not operate like TV/Radio/traditional live venues, but content makers online need to realise that copyright law exists for a reason, and not just to inconvenience us.

    I'm frankly amazed Twitch's lax attitude has lasted this long, Google or no Google. It makes sense to protect themselves and their users from an increasingly litigious, internet-aware music industry. It's unfortunate, but I don't blame twitch/google at all for the decision to crack down. They're not the ones in power in regards to this.

    Automated audio scanning, however, is never good news. As usual, it sounds like it's being implemented in an dreadful, mistake prone and unnecessarily heavyhanded way.

  • Sony is being sued for Killzone failing to deliver "native 1080p" multiplayer

  • Zyklonbzombie 07/08/2014

    If there's one convincing argument that games will never be "real" art, it's the fact that a loud subset of gamers will always reduce them to quantifiable products that must live up 100% to their individual criterea and absoloutely revel in taking on the role of the poor consumer oppressed by an evil industry conspiring to annoy them personally. Maybe we'll start seeing more creativity and risk taking in the industry when developers/publishers don't feel like they're walking on all these nerdy human eggshells.

    Similarly, I genuinely believe that a not-insignificant number of people enjoy preordering games simply because they get off on being outraged when they inevitably find some disappointing aspect of it that fails their impossible expectations, that they can milk for attention/gamer 'cred'/victimisation fantasies.

    I remember when people were genuinely excited when a new, critically acclaimed, well made game was released, instead of being desperate to be first one to find a reason to demand a refund (or in this case a fucking lawsuit)

  • Steam and Early Access: To curate or not curate?

  • Zyklonbzombie 06/08/2014

    Xbox Live got it right with having two seperate store fronts - one for more traditional retail titles, and the other being pretty much anything goes. Steam would be wise to simply compartmentalise the shop front into a curated steam store, an indies store, and a "classics" store for all the old unaltered rereleases. Reply -8
  • Wing Commander 3 is free right now on Origin

  • Zyklonbzombie 06/08/2014

    @TheChieftian Didn't it turn out that the ban was an accident (it should have been a forum ban), a single incident, and not some evil conspiracy to lock players out of their games? This sort of thing happens with other services all the time and no one kicks up near as much fuss.

    Most criticisms that can be aimed at Origin can be aimed at any other digital distribution service. In fact, in some ways, Origin is one of the more consumer friendly ones.

    Fair enough if some people just don't like the smell of EA - as is very much in vogue right now - but all the ridiculous hyperbole over Origin needs to go away. It's a perfectly fine piece of software for a perfectly fine service.

  • Gone Home dev is making another first-person exploration game

  • Zyklonbzombie 05/08/2014

    I wanted to like Gone Home, but I just couldn't. I disliked the over reliance on 90s nostalgia in place of a real, lasting sense of atmosphere, and the decision to cast you an obscenely wealthy white girl in a game trying to explicitly deal with adversity felt like a huge missed opportunity and was probably slightly alienating to much of the game's target demographic.

    However, it did really sell me on the exploration-only genre as a viable means of storytelling - much more so than similar games like Dear Esther did. So colour me intrigued about what they do next.

  • Another Ultima game bites the dust

  • Zyklonbzombie 01/08/2014

    @marmaduke I couldn't agree more. Ultima has been vastly bettered in terms of mechanics, setting and writing since the 90s, by many other RPG franchises (including several of EAs). I'd be perfectly happy for Ultima to just resign itself to gaming history and the nostalgia of PC gamers of a certain age. It's just not something that screams "we need a modern iteration!". Reply -1

  • The problem with fear

  • Zyklonbzombie 30/07/2014

    Horror games are like horror movies. I really love the idea of being scared by them, but it's incredibly diffcult to pull off. However, it's pretty special event when something at least comes close.

    And also, like horror movies, they're overwhelmingly amateurish. Horror is the easy default genre for making a successful game/movie with minimal investment, creativity or effort - because the basic formula is so easy to follow. And they sell a bunch because it's easy to superficially emulate 'good' horror and draw people in. That's why there are countless indie games in the genre (and similarly why there are countless superficially 'retro' titles). It takes a lot of talent to make Silent Hill (for example), but anyone can knock up a game that looks convincingly a bit like Silent Hill in Unity. That doesn't really apply so much in other genres.

    As such, I don't think evoking 'fear' is especially more difficult than evoking any other strong emotion from a game. It's just looks that way because the horror market is saturated with garbage. All the challenges mentioned in the artcle apply, but every genre (or emotion) has their own.

    Unless you have a 360 degree TV, I can't really see the appeal of tracking minor eye movements.

  • It looks like EA is planning a Sims 4 Premium subscription

    If it was like Battlefield Premium, where it essentially acted as a season pass with a couple of other bonuses thrown in, then I'd say it was ideal for The Sims (even if it just covered the bigger expansion packs). If it just allows people to "save" on them, however, then it sounds dire. Reply 0

    I actually hope we get more of these articles from Eurogamer. Firstly because it's an interesting issue, and one which will be a major focal point in how game narratives evolve over the next few years.

    ...but also because hopefully, eventually, it will filter out the sort of gamers who are offended to the core by a website's sheer nerve to write completely optional things on topics they aren't personally interested in. It's impossible to have any sort of mature discussion about diversity without it being drowned in a sea of "I DON'T CARE SO YOU MUST SHUT UP!".

    If you don't like Eurogamer's well established, pro-diversity/inclusivity editorial stance, then don't read the editorial articles. If you simply can't control yourself from clicking on them, there are plenty of other gaming news sites.

  • Sniper Elite 3 has a three-part DLC campaign to Save Churchill

    I like the idea of Sniper Elite, but gave 2 a try since it was given away on Steam and found it a bit too clunky and 'cheap' feeling to get into - and as a result surprisingly unsatisfying to actually snipe in (the kill cam lost its novelty pretty quickly).

    I'd be interested in trying 3 though, especially since I love the NA setting. Can anyone say whether or not the gamplay has been significantly tightened up since 2?

  • EA ends support for The Sims 2

  • Zyklonbzombie 16/07/2014

    @jammers101 I'll grant you Dungeon Keeper, and Sim City, but the others there are pretty well recieved. I'm not sure a couple of 7/10 sequels (Dragon Age and Dead Space)and a divisive ending to an otherwise very highly regarded sequel (ME3) counts as "driving them into the ground". Battlefield 4, despite some wonky but hugely overblown launch issues (that are no worse than, say, Battlefield 2's launch back in the day) is similarly well recieved, stuffed with content and enteraining millions - minus the professionally-outraged-by-anything-contemporary subset of gamer, of course. Hardline and The Sims 4 aren't out, so you can't exactly pass judgement on them.

    If anything, EA are one of the few publishers who actually enforce a decent amount of quality control over their franchises. Not everything is going to be a 10/10, but an absoloute stinker from EA is proportionally quite rare. And that's quite an achievement for a company that outputs so many games, from dozens of studios, usually on multiple platforms. I can't think of any other publisher that manages it.

    Really, it kills me to find myself constantly defending a giant faceless corporation. But the amount of hyperbole, willful ignorance and hysteria surrounding them kills me more.

  • Zyklonbzombie 16/07/2014

    @jammers101 But again, it's just make-the-shareholders-happy talk. Have you played any of the recent Battlefield games? These microtransactional shortcut packs have been in the series since Bad Company 2 (though no one whinged about them back then - it wasn't in vogue to despise Battlefield yet). They don't ruin the game. They don't take anything away. People aren't clamouring to throw their money at them. As far as I can tell, they're just an option there for a minority of hardcore players with more money than patience.

    And if you're trying to impress a bunch of people who only care about getting something out of their investment, of course you're going to talk this up as an example of how they're squeezing out profits at every opportunity. That's exactly what they want to hear.

    If anything, it's the stakeholders, not the gamers being fed bullshit here. 99% of the suits listening to that speech haven't a clue what he's on about, but I'm sure it sounds great to their ears.

    I'm sure if you heard everything more beloved companies like, say, CD Projekt, are feeding investors, without any sense of context you'd come away feeling pretty disillusioned with them too. But no one is interested in digging that up (until the Witcher 3 is inevitably branded "dumbed down" by virtue of selling well, and the backlash begins :-P )

    @jammers101 I don't get it, if the "actual game side of the company seems pretty reasonable", what's the problem? What's the other side to EA? Have they started mining blood diamonds on the side?

    EA are far from perfect. Their approach to mobile gaming is silly, for example (though they're not aimed at "us", anyway) but most of the issues surrounding their games are completely blown out of proportion in ways that no other company endures. As for the whole out of touch corporate talk thing: the gaming press has cottoned on to the fact that Evil EA (or Activision) articles will get a lot of angry clicks. As such we get all these quotes pulled from shareholder meetings and the like, which, despite being typical of pretty much any large corporation (and too boring to publish), will conveniently get mouths frothing if heard from whatever the villain of the week is. Eurogamer aren't too bad for this, but they have their moments.

    The anti-EA hysteria really is astounding. Remember when EA made an absoloutely amazing humble bundle for charity? Remember when EA took a stand for gay rights in an unprecedented way in the industry? Remember when EA starting giving out monthly free games? Remember how people STILL managed to twist these things into their anti-EA narrative as being evil money grabbing publicity stunts/distraction techniques/schemes to get you to install Origin so it can kill your family... in a way that puts many conspiracy theorists to shame?

    EA could find and freely distribute a cure for cancer, and people would still percieve it as an act of pure evil.

    @jimr9999us Most devs "kill support" for games a lot sooner than this. Especially single player ones.

    I must be one of the few people on earth who actually likes EA (or as much as one can like a giant publishing corporation). Their output is consistently pretty good, I actually think Origin is pretty decent, I like their recent attitude towards charity/social responsibility/diversity, when I've had to deal with customer service it was fast and efficient, they took down Tim Langdell, and lately they've been pretty great with giving out free stuff.

    Sadly, every industry needs a pantomime villain, and EA is the biggest/easiest target.

    @ImpericalLegion I don't think the "struggles" of religious people (who are still the vast majority of the world population) having their beliefs looked down upon by atheists compares with the dehumanisation, violence and wall of sheer willful ignorance experienced by gay people (and many other minorities) daily.

    Opposition to an intellectual position - even if it's immature/disrespectful =/= oppression. That's not to say it isn't an issue, especially if it crosses over into bullying, but it gets frustrating when it's constantly conflated with actual bigotry.

  • Alien: Isolation's Ripley DLC isn't just for pre-orders

  • Zyklonbzombie 11/07/2014

    Did anyone really seriously think that this was never going to be made available to non-preorderers? I'll preorder. The game looks amazing. The DLC looks amazing. I like Creative Assembly. If it turns out not to be good, I can live with that decision without blaming Sega for somehow decieving me by not proclaiming "this game is rubbish, don't buy it" in their marketing.

    Maybe I'm just lucky in predicting these things, but generally I can tell if a game is going to be dreadful before release. It seemed pretty obvious to me that Colonial Marines, for example, was poor a few months beforehand. Whereas this looks like something I will eat up as an Alien fan, regardless of the review scores and inevitable refund demands/metacritic user-score battering it recieves.

  • Train Simulator dev signs Flight Simulator deal

  • Zyklonbzombie 10/07/2014

    @DreadedWalrus In fairness, FS games have traditionally had a LOT of expensive, commercial expansions. They just came about before the days of "DLC".

    Hardcore Sim fans aren't going to spend 2 grand on all the "DLC". But they might spend 20-40 on a very detailed simulation of their favourite plane/train/route/whatver.

    It has always been the case, and I think it's a little unfair to lump sim expansions in with more common DLC types. While there's a big overlap, the "sims" and "gaming" audiences generally have pretty different expectations, products and industry practices.

    I'm fine with this. I'll probably preorder the game (yes, boo, hiss, I'm such a shill) anyway, since it looks amazing, but this sealed the deal.

    For those who don't want to preorder, I imagine you'll be able to purchase it for a fiver a few weeks after launch. While it would be nice to have it included in the main game, I'm guessing that hiring the original cast cost a pretty penny.

  • How Dying Light is keeping the zombie genre fresh

    @null You've just fallen into the same trap you're trying to call out. There aren't all that many FPSes kicking about. Certainly no more (proportionally) than at any other period in the last 20 years of gaming history.

    Whereas I think it's fair to say that the last 7-5 years has seen a surge in the amount of zombie related games.

    Off the top of my head: Dead Rising series, Day Z, Walking Dead, Dead Island, Last of Us, ZombieU, Left4Dead, Killing Floor, Rust, 7 Days to Die, Project Zomboid, H1Z1, Contagion, Infestation Survivor Stories, Dead Nation.... I could go on for ages. And countless Zombie modes/DLCs for other games, of course. And even more countless indie DayZ/minecraft clones.

    I can't think of many outside the Resident Evil series from before the whole zombie boom, however.
