  • April Xbox Games With Gold includes Ryse, Assassin's Creed Revelations

  • addman 24/03/2017

    Great, I got Ryse in the mail a couple of days ago after ordering it last weekend, joy. Oh, I hate to complain but I downloaded Project Cars in the "free with gold" program and got almost immediately turned off by all the menues. I don't like racing games any more, they have become to complicated and in-depth, like many other games too. Nice to see Walking Dead though, wish I'd played through the whole first season which I had on a Mac I no longer own, dat sux. Reply -1
  • FIFA 17 review

  • addman 23/09/2016

    I went to the FIFA 17 demo after years of playing only PES. What a shock, players are overanimated, meaning you have to learn how long it takes for a buttonpress to actually perform it's intended action. Defence is a joke, especially when trying to gain possession since glide tackles are absolutely useless. Freekicks and penalties are over engineered. I don't know, maybe EA brakes the game intentionally every other year so they can say they fixed it in the next release. Reply +11

    You call those taxes?! HA! We have triple-tax on energy here in Scandinavia. If you own a car, you have vehicle tax, "road tax" (still our roads look like crap because appaerantly road tax isn't enough) and insurance. There might be one more for the car I have to check my bills pile. We have public service tax for state radio and TV which is mandatory even if you don't own a radio or TV. 24% vat, 21% income tax (depends a little where you live). Inheritance tax which means that if your family have a business you might not be able to take over it after your parents leave it to you because the taxation might leave you broke and in debt, same thing for land and property. There's much more, so yeah, welfare is expensive, welcome to the club :).

  • Target pulls Grand Theft Auto 5 from sale in Australia

  • addman 04/12/2014

    I'd say GTA encourages you to kill EVERYTHING in the game, it's just a personal preference what or who you'd like to kill and how. So yes, I agree that more diversity in killable subjects would be welcome so not only "working girls" are sticking out. Maybe a DLC? "handicapped and infants" DLC for variety and inclusiveness. "Abortion DLC" kill the person before it's even born! That'll rally the all the religious nutters for sure. Reply 0

    I agree with the sentiment that if there would be male prostitutes to run over as well, this wouldn't be such a big issue. Also, I'd rather run over gay male prostitutes rather than female ones. Equal killing opportunities for all genders and sexual orientations I say! Reply -1

    A Swedish thank you and goodbye to you, good sir. Eurogamer has been my no.1 browser bookmark for 14 years. It was the first gaming website where, I as a European, could feel "at home" and that was aimed towards us PAL-people. Again, thank you Tom, for your contributions to the online gaming community.

  • Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel confirmed for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360

  • addman 09/04/2014

    Even though it might not sell as well previous Borderlands games it will surely be very profitable considering there's a lot of already finished assets to build the game with. Even though I wouldn't trust "sales"-Pitchford for 5 cents(€) I do understand that they want to put most of their resources on a new IP with a new game engine and all on the current-gen consoles instead of being held-back by limitations of last-gen. The install base will be greater when the new IP is finished but it doesn't matter so much any way because it's almost always the sequels that does best. Also, why would you want to play a game built on that creaky old Unreal engine on a PS4 or Xbox One anyway? Reply 0

  • addman 24/01/2014

    To all people complaining that next-gen can't manage 1080p@fps, games of today contain A LOT more in terms of effects, polygons, pixels and whathaveyou then your game of yesteryear. It's not comparable, newer games require more horsepower and consoles aren't monster-machines on launch like they used to be. We will reach a point, maybe not far away where even the PS4 will struggle to maintain 60fps@1080p. Sorry console folks, you cant have it all. Also, what's all this fixation with 60fps@1080p anyway? are people only playing CoD on consoles or something? Reply +2
  • For this developer, Steam sales "screw your fans"

  • addman 16/01/2014

    I agree to a certain extent, I've bought way too many games on steam sales and humble bundles that I haven't even downloaded or installed just because they were so cheap. Recently though, I've stopped doing so, not for the sake of any developers but because seeing that massive steam backlog with games I will never play just makes me sick. Reply +1

  • Asda no longer selling Wii U consoles, games in supermarkets

  • addman 29/07/2013

    The biggest problem with the Wii U isn't just the lack of great games, it's the lack of an instant hook gimmick. Nintendo struck gold with the Wii because of the novelty of waggling in Wii sports and then riding on that novelty released the WiiFit board to exactly the same audience. The Wii U doesn't have the same instant appeal that EVERYONE gets as the Wii had and that will be it's downfall. Nintendo probably thought "hey! we need a new console with a gimmick that sells, what's hot right now? what's everybody using? TABLETS!!! of course!". Except they missed what makes tablets so great, apps. Instant, easy to use apps be it at home in the sofa or on the go. Games made specifically for the tablet etc. IMO, they missed the mark completely, instead of coming up with something fun, innovative and new they chose to ride the tablet train but unfortunately without most of the things that makes tablets so popular.

  • Fez 2 cancelled, Fish swims away from the game industry

  • addman 28/07/2013

    I don't know so much about Fish and I haven't even played Fez, seems like a rather arrogant person though. Marcus Beer on the other hand, should be banned from the internet. Annoyed gamers, angry gamers, disgruntled gamers etc. who are these people and what's wrong with them? Play games, have fun and STFU please! I really didn't like Shane Satterfield on IW but now when he's gone, there's no counter to Beer's totally moronic persona. I actually MISS Shane on IW and I never thought I'd say that. He was the only one who could make Beer shut up but you know, it's the internet, loudest pottie-mouth gets the most hits, sigh...

  • Microsoft reverses position on Xbox One DRM

  • addman 19/06/2013

    How funny it is, to hear all these neg-heads that just a few months ago -prior to the PS4 and Xbox One unveiling- were whining on about how long this console generation had been and how they were clamoring for something new and refreshing instead of the same old re-hashes and sequels that all basically looked and played the same to different degrees now have succeeded in bringing the one console manufacturer that was [actually trying to bring something new to the table, to the cross. Instead what we will be getting are the same exact games we've had for 8 flippin years for at least another 8 years, the irony. I can see why a lot of PS4 fans are so hyped about the indie games that will be coming to the platform since those games will be the only innovative stuff you will see on that console. Reply -11
  • addman 19/06/2013

    Congrats Sony for keeping us in the year 2006, who cares about new awesome gaming experiences when we've got DDR5 memory and Octodad! Progress? pfffft! who needs that! Pop that disc in that tray every time you play CoD XIV or Uncharted 6: Drakes Same Adventure. Seamlessly merged single and multiplayer experiences you say, same 20 odd years old deathmatches and linear scripted single player campaigns I said. Who wants something new for next-gen when we all love status quo so hard. Reply -32
  • addman 19/06/2013

    aaah! ffs! Disc in the tray although game is on the HDD?! thank you no-life internet nerds for keeping us in the year 1995. I thought we'd finally get rid of that stupid crap. I remember when I got my 360 how stunned I was that I actually had to keep switching DVD's even though I already had the games installed, might as well just run the game from the disc then. Finally I thought we'd get rid of that with this new generation of consoles. I like having a physical copy of my games, not because I'll sell it -haven't sold or traded a game since I was like 15 or something- but because I just like collecting the stuff, I love my game boxes/cases stacked on my shelves. I was so happy to hear that you wouldn't have to keep the discs in the tray while playing anymore on the xbox one. You know what, forget about physical media, I'll be buying digital only on my Xbox One once I get it just out of spite and to suck money away from the retailers. You know, when you get to a certain age you start to appreciate convenience more and more....this just sucks. It's good that they switched their DRM policies and stuff, I don't really care since I don't trade or sell games anymore but that no disc in the tray to play, might sound silly but it was kind of a big thing for me. I bet most people spewing hatred about MS and the Xbox One policies online weren't going to get the system anyway and that just plainly sucks. I would've rather had them lowering the price instead of 180 the DRM policies, easily. Still getting one though.

    P.S It will be interesting to see how the publishers reacts to this, who's up for 70-80€ games eh?! Oh yeah, so the future of console gaming is now only DDR5 memory? How progressive.

    Xbox One and PS4 + a game or two is too expensive, Wii U has no good games coming -except some third-party that I can play on my 360 anyway- and basically just the same old re-hashes coming. I think I might just have to stick with my 360 for one more holiday season. Bet we'll see a price drop before Christmas 2014 on the Xbone and the PS4, I'll pick up a PS4 then. Reply -3

    Well I guess you can add on the VAT of your country once customs gets their mits on it, it'd be cheaper anyway though. That's just fubar, having to import your console to get it at decent price, I remember when it was the other way around. Also, check out this suggested price at one of Scandinavias biggest home electronics online retailer:

    that's right 5...9....9 euros. Looks like us Europeans are getting the shaft up our behinds...again sigh....:(

    Oh yeah! and don't forget to check out the suggested game prices, 79,95 a pop! OMG! I'm getting cold-sweaty flashbacks from the N64 days.

    Oh my God! I could never in my wildest dreams -or nightmares- have imagined that it would be such an ugly box. This is some type of prototype/concept box right? RIGHT?!! My 360 slim is a freaking design masterpiece compared to that monstrosity. It looks like one of those VCR's that you could rent back in the 80/90's, they came in a big ugly plastic case with a handle and all, I swear the Xbox One looks just like one of those.

    Still, that is actually one of the MINOR complaints I have about this "thing". Too negged out right now, have to take it all in and maybe soak up ANYTHING positive from the press conference. Sony, the goal is wide open, you can't least I hope you won't.

  • Gearbox acquires Homeworld

  • addman 23/04/2013

    I still remember buying Homeworld back when it was released on my very first PC (had been a Mac user up until then) and it blew my mind. It made games like C&C look ooold. So this makes me kind of sad :( and I can't believe there were actually people thinking Colonial Marines would be a good game, do people have such short memory?! DN Forever revealed what a b*llshit used-cars salesman Pitchford is. How can he still be at Gearbox? Do they enjoy having a bad image? Also, Borderlands 1 AND 2 = critically overrated loot game in FPS disguise. Does nothing originally, I never even finished the first game since it was just such a grind and the weapons were just small variations of each other. I'd rather have 10-15 totally unique weapons instead of thousands of variations of the same gun thank you. Reply +4

    Not too shabby considering that the underlying architecture of the Wii U CPU is based on the triassic PPC 750 which I had in my 1998 Power Mac G3. It's amazing that they've actually been able to spook that CPU up to such a "high" frequency without it melting. I guess that's what you have to do when you are to cheap to invest a single dollar in R&D. I have to say though, it'd certainly give a Pentium III a run for it's money. Reply -9

  • Watch Dogs Wii U release touted by retailers

  • addman 19/02/2013

    That's good news for Wii U owners. On another note, "available on all home consoles", I almost feel sorry for Ubisoft. So many platforms, how in the world does even Ubisoft manage to have the resources to pull that off? The first year or so of the next-gen is going to be a nightmare for developers, the 360 and PS3 user-base will still be in large majority for at least a few years ahead so most multi-platform games will have to be made for those platforms to make a good profit. Or they can just focus on the new consoles and ditch the old ones altogether and take a loss for a couple of years until the next-gen user-base will be large enough to generate a healthy profit. Which developer/publisher can take those kind of financial hits these days though? In any case, it is going to be very interesting to see if the Wii U's slow early adoption rate is a one off or an indicator of the harsh financial climate we are in atm and if so, will the PS4 and 720 face a similar start to their life-cycle? Especially considering that they will most likely have a higher price-tag than the Wii U. The industry has "swollen" very quickly the last 5 years but unfortunately most western economies haven't, is the videogame industry heading for a financial implosion?

  • Wii U graphics power finally revealed

  • addman 06/02/2013

    Am I the only one being shocked by the fact that the Wii U CPU is basically the same type that I had in my 1998 PowerMac G3?! Am I correct here, it's basically a triple-core overclocked PowerPC 750?!! ROFLMAO! No wonder the poor ports and performance, the GPU on that thing is no powerhouse by any means but that ancient CPU architecture is choking it blue. A 3DFX Voodoo2 would have been a better match. They'd be better off if they'd stuck a current low-end, dual-core celeron in there instead but I guess they got a ridiculously good deal on tons of left-over GC/Wii CPU's laying around the manufacturers warehouse.
