  • Future Assassin's Creed games will have "more robust modern day" than Unity

  • bad09 27/02/2015

    @DasManiac

    I don't think that is the case, being pulled out to some dull modern day plot is one of the biggest criticisms I always see for the series.

  • Anger over lack of local co-op in Resident Evil Revelations 2 on PC

    I don't know, in 6 I still found the AI as annoying and pointless as 5.

    Personally I don't think co-op belongs in horror games at all as you lose all tension and atmosphere. 5 & 6 had no scares whatsoever which is good going for a "horror" series. :)

    Maybe they can drop co-op altogether, biggest flaw in their newer "resident evil" games is the constant forcing of crap AI partners on single players to accomdate boring online modes. Reply +15

    @Luz1978

    Why have age limits on games? Same as for movies and some music, as a guide to content and protection for children accessing stuff on their own. There is no magic age where people start to understand things and we all develop at different rates so rough guidance is needed. If the person buying it is of age I see no reason to question them. If a parent buys blind then that's down to them and nobody else certainly not something that needs more control - although I can't see what further control you could have anyway.

    How do you know she didn't know what's involved anyway? She may know full well what the content in the games was and her children could handle the content for all you know (it is just COD shooty bang bang and DR2 after all, not exactly shocking stuff that will scar a young teen :) ).

    Why should the person serving say anything? The woman can buy legally and frankly it's got sod all to do with the shop assistant what she does with it once she leaves the shop.

    As for 18 films, you never watch Predator or Robocop as a Kid?

    OK I know EG are fanning flames asking for clarification from the mother (dear god EG really????) but I have to ask, where did all these idiots that think age ratings are some sort of set in stone legal "age of consent" come from? Is it a new generational thing where people don't think for themselves?

    As always age ratings are for purchase people. It protects children accessing (possibly) unsuitable material without parental consent and also keeps retailers out of trouble. Whether a child consumes the media is actually down to the parents not some government approved age rating so please get off your high horses you look so silly up there. :)

  • Gameplay of cancelled Legacy of Kain: Dead Sun leaks

  • bad09 23/02/2015

    That looked dull I can see why they dumped it. Now the utter randomness of a F2P online shooter makes sense though, I guess they thought save what they can.

    Also why do they always go for 3D? Personally the most engrossing game of the series was the original Blood Omen.

    Go for it, a decent PC won't break the bank and it will open a whole world of gaming not on console. Worth it for the sim genre alone even if you do have a console.

    Yeah, some real unique experiences on PC, it's amazing how the simple or mundane can be fun. Some make their way over to console farming, woodcutter (not euro truck). if there is a market they'll grow.

    Don't talk to me about euro truck though, woke up early today about 4 put it on and end ended up driving to Edinburgh. just finished. Damn game... going back to sleep now got work later :)

    Midnight openings are a curse for a boozed up gamer. I remember leaving a bar to go home back in the PS2 era and ending up with not only GT3 but a new wheel to go with it.

    Dragons Lair at least made you use your brain a bit in how you interacted with it.

    There's a bit in the beginning they actually give you on screen control instructions on how to simply crawl along a small tunnel and move along a wall. A lot of modern gaming is so fucking dumb it's not even a joke anymore :)

    @riceNpea

    Oh there is action but it's generic, old hat and standard. Think gears of war in really small areas. There is a reason this looks so good graphically I ended up skipping chunks of video to actually try and find the gameplay :)

    I have no vested interest in bashing it but I would be very wary in paying such a price for it and eg were right to warn people off. Probably worth twenty quid if you like your eye candy though.

    @riceNpea

    Previews can be negative. Of course the title of the video was embarrassing and childish from a supposedly professional games website and certainly click bait (it is EG after all they live for click bait) but I see no problem with warning people off games.

    They did it like an fanboy comment but to be honest I watched some gameplay video last night and EG were right on the money. there is so little actual game in The Order I'd be pissed if I paid 50 quid for it.

    Video games are to be played not watched (oddly enough that's what movies are for! :) ), unskippable cutscenes are IMO terrible GAME design.

    "lots of people complained Alien Isolation was too long. Gamers are very fickle"
    I don't think that's gamers being fickle. As brilliant as it is Isolation is a one trick pony gameplay wise and certainly did outstay its welcome by the end. There just wasn't enough variety to the gameplay which is why people thought it was too long. Had they mixed it up a bit people wouldn't have complained.

    @ahrmon

    I only played the first Uncharted and a bit of 2 but while the are similarities in terms of premise Uncharted has more in common with Gears Of War than Tomb Raider gameplay wise, sure there is a bit of light platforming but it was mostly a 3rd person shooty shooty game which original Tomb Raider really isn't.

    The Tomb Raider reboot dropped its roots and stuck boobs on Nathan Drake.

    Will be interesting to see how many bite the on sequel. I imagine a few won't touch it, my Mrs was a big TR fan and they killed the series dead for her, I mainly nabbed it for her but she wouldn't even touch it after watching me play it.

    "THAT is the new Tomb Raider? No thanks..." was her exact words.

    Mind you the moneyhat deal will make that hard to call anyway as they'll only be selling it on MS consoles for a while anyway.

    I couldn't bring myself to finish it in the end but to me the "tombs" in Tomb Uncharted were mostly optional and largely pointless icons on a map while the game itself was just a dull manshoot through some boring island.

    Is the sequel another dull manshoot with "tombs" as an optional thing or is this going to be about raiding actual tombs like the old games? Because that will decide if I bother this time....(once the timed deal is up of course :) )

    @FMV-GAMER

    You'd need to ask the developer on native res (I think it actually upscaled 720) but to be honest I don't really see the point in going for this if you already got all the DLC. The game apparently struggled a bit on 360 so a better running version for Xbone I can understand but I see no point for PC users there's no real improvements to graphics it's more a GOTY version for us and you already have the DLC.

    @George-Roper

    Dunno George you might be wrong there. I remember talk before the game that it was going to be a MMO originally but SoD was born out of that original plan and any MP would happen in another game.

    I don't know the reasons behind scrapping the original idea but this was talked about before it launched there is no conspiracy, they wanted to do MP but shelved it for the time being.

    FYI It was known before they even released it that they were originally planning some mmo but they shelved that idea until a later date and made SoD first. No conspiracy theories there was always going to be a separate game that offered the MP element.
