    Honestly, don't knock it until you tried it some of these sim games can be quite fun to play and I say that as someone who used t think like you. I'm open to any kind of sim game these days.

    I agree there, I think it's quite a glaring gap in the console market for sure. I guess it's a lot easier and cheaper just to release on for most of them. Plus of course many use K&M with many buttons so controllers may prove difficult for a lot of sims.

    Yeah a lot just would not make it past console quality control but, as you say, ETS2 is a really polished product.

    To be honest on ETS2 I think the sudden cult status was a shock to even the devs, SCS had made quite a few of these truck sims before ETS2 but for some reason that game just exploded on to the scene and became a hit. I'm sure SCS will branch out with the next one (maybe even the upcoming american truck sim), a few sims are popping up on console you got this and farming sim is multiplatform.

    I think it's a crime you guys only on console can't play Euro Truck 2, everyone should play it. With the success it got maybe they'll port the next one.

    If you fancy some sim action though I do suggest you get a PC though, there are some great ones to muck about with and a right laugh some are even amazingly addictive. Also for some reason everyone loves having a go on sim games, even non gamers.

  • Resident Evil Revelations 2 Raid Mode offline only at launch

    @Old_Books

    I would imagine so as the rumour started with a screenshot of a PS4 dashboard.

    Bare in mind though it's not been confirmed or even a listing spotted somewhere. At this point it's pure speculation based on a screenshot of the PS4 dashboard on Capcoms website.

    You never know, with remake (and supposedly Zero to) maybe Capcom will actually start making real Resident Evil games again. :)

    I dunno it's difficult, as I said it's hard to care too much seeing some of these companies charge so much then take some out for DLC then have the cheek to riddle them with MTs but it still feels a bit off to me.

    I suppose though it's no different to buying in sales which is when I buy most games anyway.

    Grow up for having an opinion? To me Ubi games are duller than dishwater to me these days. All play the same even in different genres, they always have technical troubles and personally I would not bother even for free.

    I'm not sure on the legality myself but it does seem their hands are becoming forced by really weak currency in those regions making the savings huge.

    It's difficult to argue personally, I used G2A for the first time last month and made a saving of about 90 quid on 4 games (and one of those included season pass) it's unbelievably cheap. Of course on the other hand I'm in the UK and companies like Ubi are frankly taking the piss so hard to care if people buy cheap keys when I'm joining them. :)

    You missed the important bit of adivce from good old Lewie

    I would advocate that any customers who have had their key(s) revoked respond by pirating the game, and then reconsider whether you want to buy Ubisoft games again in the future. I would also suggest that anyone who doesn’t like the idea of a digital distribution service where games can be revoked with no notice, no explanation, and no scope for recourse, avoid uPlay

    Be interesting to hear what Ubi say if that distributor is real. Makes you worry about buying Ubi that is for sure. Thank fuck I never picked up Watch Dogs recently.

    It may simply be a crack down on cheap keys like Valve are doing. Valve of course are doing it the right way by introducing region locking countries where the low currency is really hurting like Russia and Brazil.

    "a supplier of these codes to the resellers has come forward to say that he buys directly from ubisoft and they have banned his keys too... So the "stolen keys" thing is already proving false."

    That is extremely worrying if true.

    @rafi

    With keysellers the keys normally come from boxed copies bought around the world. Companies/people buy from distributors and sell online, given the high price of "official" retailers in many countries they make a nice profit.

    In truth that's why companies dislike keysellers, it's not really that they are dodgy it's more they undercut their own stupidly high pricing in some regions.

    well that's the fraud part, it usually turns out to be games/keys bought with a dodgy card or something. It's not bought from Ubi either normally it will be a distributor.

    @d0x

    Not all of them would be out of pocket, I've only used G2A a couple of times myself but they have an optional security charge to ensure you get a 100% working purchase. I don't know if other sellers do that though.

  • bad09 26/01/2015

    @rafi

    It could be the way the keys were obtained, sometimes these keys are dodgy and bought on stolen cards or physical games stolen from somewhere. Rebellion turned off peoples purchased games because they were bought on a stolen card and ended up with keysellers.

    You do have to be careful with keysellers.

    Yeah I know was going the easy route for a giggle, can't beat that set up personally get the machine in the living room! :)

    On a serious note though, do PC gamers really wan't a lesser experience? I'm certainly not the most elitist of high end myself but even I wasn't really happy with the streaming experience. High enders of the master race will sneer streaming to a console surely? Not to mention the keyboard & mouse snobs :)

    yeah but surely it's better to just wait than play a lesser version of what you are enjoying? I think some don't realise streaming is not as good quality wise, it won't be the same experience as locally, even wired connection.

    Streaming Video is better so kick 'em off the TV and give them a tablet :)

    Yeah I suppose there is that, Onlive is a fat room of servers somewhere. I still think having some locally stored games is far easier than worrying about the connection somewhere though.

    As I said down there I do think it's all rather gimmicky and pointless now having tried some gaming streaming to various devices.

    I think anyone wanting to create a game server similar to NAS should at least get wiring done. Video and Music is fine over Wi-Fi but gaming (IMO of course) it really is only suited to now and again for gaming especially for decent framerates....and start saving for the electric bill :)

    I guess it's down to your tastes, I've given up on streaming as it's just not as good as local play graphically and framerate wise. I've found I'd rather do something else until whatever I want is freed up. It's all rather gimmicky to me now.

    I suppose if you lucky enough to be somewhere that has a good connection it could work for some but having tried Onlive I can't say I'd ever be bother with streaming anywhere, mind you I have plenty to play on my phone while out and about if I need my crack fix there is always something to play.

    I understand it with other media but streaming your gaming from anywhere? surely it would be a crap experience and you might as well wait till you got home? Have you tried Onlive? I know it works but it 'ain't great.

    It's not like there are no mobile games to play on the devices if you really can't wait for a gaming fix.

  • Microsoft demos Windows 10 Xbox app

    @true_gamer

    I think it would have been better received if Phil was clear about what he would reveal. His teasing suggested more than things console users would use on Windows. Saying it's time to talk gaming and Windows then talking about things mainly for the console user was always gonna lead to disappointment. As I said people were expecting pc gaming talk....of which there has been none really other than yet another option for video capture.

    I don't know about people being exicted about Vita streaming (wasn't the Vita a flop anyway? I doubt many were exicted :) ) but I can see why it's a big fat fat "meh" with all this from MS to be honest (certainly is for me as a PC gamer).

    Streaming? why play at a lesser quality? I've used Steam streaming a couple of times in bed, it works sure but is a bit crappy not as good as on the actual machine and means using 2 machines rather than one just because you can't wait. Not a massive selling point for many and if you don't own their console it means nothing anyway.

    The clips thing is largely pointless for PC users for the obvious reason that we have a wealth of solutions for that already, it really is no big deal in any shape or form you really expect people to go "Oh wow that thing we can already do and have done for years, BRILLIANT!"?.

    Live integration for Windows is the biggest "meh" with added "eeeeeew, yuck!" on the PC platform since GFWL, and frankly most people don't want MS intergration of their console thingie ever again after that turd. Hardly anyone not using a console but despeate to see a friends list while not on that console will ever care about that.

    I dunno maybe if Phil hadn't said about talking gaming and windows people would not be on it but he made it sound like he was going to talk PC and this is largely console talk, it's more MS trying to sell windows 10 to console owners with a PC not actual PC gaming talk which is indeed a massive "Meh" for PC gamers to be honest.

  • Theme Hospital is free to download on Origin

  • bad09 22/01/2015

    @FMV-GAMER

    They were already spending on Origin before they told Valve to get lost on their change in policy, a lot of people don't realise the DRM client was actually around for years before it became Origin. A great deal of my EA games were on Origin before Origin existed :)

    It was originally called EA Download Manager but was a completely optional DRM client at that time, you could run your disc for the check or unlock them on EADM and you could buy EA games on there. Once they offed Valve they rebranded, added features and looked to offer other games on there to make it more like Steam and forced it as a DRM like Steamworks.
