  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt patch 1.2 adds enemy level-scaling and a lot more

    @ziggy_played_guitar

    I think you misunderstood the post actually but can see how you interpreted it that way.

    I meant "old school" as in the old days when we didn't need loads of patches for games. They released and you played them, no need to wait for this or that to be fixed like you do with modern games and the patch culture.

    @R74NN

    I'm old school in like I like to play things when I buy them not 6 months down the line. It was playable but still rough if honest got bored of constant patching to see if things were fixed and gave up. Did the same with gta5 after all the constant online patches for a mode I never used.

    Game is ok and like I said if it's finished I'll look again but life is too short to wait for patches not buyng anything new anymore and only look after a good few months. Patch culture of today is joke just release when you finish it.

    So is this likely to be the last patch? I gave up playing it after the 5th or 6th patch so might give it a go now if it's actually finally finished. Reply -2
  • More powerful Xbox One planned for 2017 - report

  • bad09 25/05/2016

    @seasidebaz

    Of course it is shrinking, many casual are dumping their laptops and notebooks (and consoles) for tablets and phones (or to name them properly "mobile" PCs). Doesn't meaning the PC market is disappearing. Hardware is shrinking mostly at the lower end but the first article you linked shows they still make a shitload of cash from "traditional" PCs. They are not "pulling out" of anything and you still haven't show that they are.

    Intel, like all companies, look for growth from other avenues....kinda why more console focused publishers games are now being released on PC. Are consoles doomed now more are expanding their reach releasing on PC?

    What's your definition of a PC? PCs of all kinds seem to be doing just fine. Even a tablet is a "PC".

    PC market is going nowhere, OK the big neon box we all put together with foot long cards might go but PCs are our tools my friend not going anywhere for a long time.

    Billion dollar company dominant in a certain market already looking to grow it by branching out to news thing for growth and restructuring for that is not a sign of doom and gloom for anything I'm afraid.

    I really think you misunderstood that article. Intel aren't "pulling out" they're restructuring for a more diverse offering of products and services. :)

    Your REALLY think they'll pull out of this?

    "Intel reported a profit of $2 billion for the first quarter of 2016, growing by 3 percent compared to the same quarter a year ago.

    It reported revenue of $13.7 billion for the quarter, growing by 7 percent compared to the year-ago quarter."

    Because, somehow, it's quite possibly the greatest game ever made. Don't ask me why though...a goat causing havoc or hanging by it's tongue from a speeding rally car or flying a spaceship just seems right somehow.

    Exclusive deals is not really what he's talking about. It's more like the TV ads that show a certain brand of console at the end and no mention of other platforms in your marketing that sort of thing.

    I was gonna post but Binba442 said it for me

    Nope, I just laugh at the console firms for throwing their money at temporary exclusivity and advertisement, money that could've been spent funding indie devs to release exclusives or just improving their own first brand titles.

    I know it's not but in a way it seems like desperation a bit to me, always thought it with those 360 TV ads for multiplatform and was thinking it with the Doom ad I saw yesterday. Big massive PS4 label on it no mention of other platforms. I always hear some suit in my head pleading:

    "Pleeeeeease don't tell your potential customers you're selling it on other platforms they might, just might, go out and buy a PS4 instead" :)

  • Finally, the Batman: Return to Arkham collection is official

  • bad09 18/05/2016

    @Teapot

    I actually hope this comes to PC!
    Why? we already have great versions that play and look better than the old console versions.

    I doubt you'll see much (if any) improvement over those. It may be running through UE4 but at 40 notes for 2 games and all the DLC this will be better res and framerate and hardly anything else I doubt it will make PC owners drool with envy. Nothing against the re-release or consoles for that matter before someone starts but they 'ain't remaking 2 games and selling them cheap. It's Warner :)

    @Samael_Blackwing

    If the almost universal feedback from critics (and a lot of your customers) is. "Meh, is that all it is?" they should care. Shareholders certainly will which is why he is giving reasons/excuses for the lukewarm reception in an investor call.

    more meaningful character customisaton
    God no, that grinding just to get a Scout Trooper or Death Trooper was terrible, I never bothered in the end.

    Back to classes like the old games, different troops with different abilites. Nice and simple and pain free. No rubbish with 200 slightly different guns or armour badges. Good quality gameplay doesn't need 1000 things to unlock in a grinding point collection metagame.

    Were you playing Battlefront 2 on PC? It is still playable (and has players) through a program called "Game Ranger"....and still great fun.

  • bad09 18/05/2016

    Battlefront was rushed to meet the film? Really doesn't show.....

    I guess with the weird cries for a SP campaign in a series known for online play they can shrug off the real issues with it. Honestly a lack of some tacked on crappy single player campaign is the least of the troubles with their "re-imagining" of a fantasic series. How about not recycling the same maps from a pitiful amount of planets? How about hiding half the slim game behind a utterly stupidly priced DLC cash grab dripped out over a year or more? Space battles? Vehicles? Bots? HAVING STORMTROOPERS WITH NO HELMETS!!!!!!

    EA and DICE have a mountain to climb in convincing me their sequel will be worthwhile TBH and I'm not talking the expensive marketing campaign. As a fan of this series this half hearted attempt was one of the biggest disappointments I've had in gaming for years.

    Also gotta laugh at EA yet again doing the whole:

    Before: "WOW! Ace! Brilliant! Look! Look at this great marketing for this GREAT game! AMAZING!"

    After: "er...yeah...wasn't that great....sorry about that. next time honest!"

    EA are nothing but chancers IMO, no wonder I buy so little of their overmarketed sludge these days.

  • Why people are talking about Resident Evil 7

  • bad09 18/05/2016

    @nickbonkersperry

    To be fair Capcom created the fanbase problem by chasing the shooter genre and making a wildy different game in a different genre. Fans of the old ones were not crying for a clunky braindead shooter we were just given that as Capcom wanted to go in a different (more profitable) direction with an already established and successful series. Capcom are the reason we have 2 sets of fans wanting different things from the same series. Capcom went wrong.

    I don't think people like the reviewer realise the impact these OTT views have on the general perception of racism. Getting offended over shit like this does not help the cause of actual racism - a lot of people just get sick of the racism card then being 'played', even when it's deserved.
    Superbly put my friend. The PC crowd fail to see how much they belittle real racism a lot of the time.

    @mattshark

    "Paki" was used as a racial slur by racist groups also, I'm told by many indian friends, part of the reason ended up being so offensive was many who were called it were not even Pakistani. It became a blanket racial slur used based on skin colour.

    That doesn't mean simply abbreviating is a racial slur. As timeless001 says Aussie, Brit etc are not offensive. The reviewer seems to be looking for racism is the point I believe he is making. Tend to agree myself...

    To be honest I can't stand Craig as Bond :)

    I think the problem with Blacklist was, as Das_ginge says, it just wasn't Fisher anymore and the character turned out a bit dull. Ironside was so important to the character they went hand in hand IMO. He even made Conviction passable to a point :)

    You are right the gameplay made up for it but I think it did hurt the game losing Ironside. Sad truth is Sam Fisher just doesn't seem that iconic without Michael Ironside voicing him.

    You can't, the free upgrade is like an OEM version, you'd have to buy a full license or another OEM.

    Didn't answer the question though did you. You want privacy these days go live under a rock. They all watch. Your playing habits, browsing habits, hardware.

    To be honest it's a bit moronic to single out MS alone, they all collect it and it serves governments and corporations nicely so either don't use anything and unplug from the net or just get on with it.

    In terms of gaming they've all been watching how and when we play long before W10.

    I dunno about being edgy. Vista and 8 were quite awful so it made sense for people to trash them :)

    I do understand why people are scared of 10 though. The legacy of 8, the scaremongering from lord Gabe because he got worried about his monopoly, the high profile reporting of MS doing exactly what others are doing with the OS or browsers or clients etc. This need to be Apple or Google with that god awful mobile store which sadly also holds their own developed/published games away from consumer choice. You can understand why some fell for the "Windows 10 is bad m'kay" line.

    Personally though I just ignore the store, turned of all the snooping and enjoyed using 10 since upgrading. Great on K&M and touchscreen, it's what 8 should have been IMO.

    @-TheDarkSide-

    Yeah don't go for the disposable crap, get yourself some quality vaping equipment to give it a go properly (avoid the tobacco flavors to, go for fruit).

    I smoked for over 20 years and not had a single fag in over a year since switching to vaping and do not miss them at all and really don't think I could even smoke one now, they smell awful. :) Feel healthier, taste things better and now started dropping nicotine levels in my E juices to ween of the vaping as well.

    Not for everyone as Triniton says but it's been the only way I'd ever get off the smokes.

    Constructive Criticism? LOL this is a videogame site not a focus group. The likes of Activision aren't sitting there wondering how EG took this news :)

    It's all spouting bollocks in the comments of a videogame site. From everyone. Even if they think they know better.

    Besides isn't there substance here? A popular game is remastered and paywalled behind some another game. Of course they'll sell it solus after they caught a few on this Space Wars expensive edition but I think people can voice their dislike of that paywalling without being called entitled by COD fans upset at the critism.

    I never get this idea that it has to be "everything is awesome!" on these comment sites some people get quite precious when you knock devs they like I've noticed. If someone thinks something is wrong or out of order whatever it is why can't they say it in the comments? Isn't that what they are there for? It is a crap we can't just buy the remaster so people are entitled to voice their view on a public board designed for just that (Wow! Use of that word that has actual relevance and meaning. FINALLY!). :)

    Would be pretty boring round here if comments were there just to thank our makers for the honour of paying for videogames and what would we do without the need to call people "entitled" around here?

Will probably pick it up (it's Doom!) but I can't say that footage impressed very much, I do hope playing is more exciting than watching 'cos that looked a bit dull if I'm honest. I suppose it was on Hurt Me Plenty though.
