  • DF Retro: we play every single Doom console conversion

  • bad09 17/09/2017

    The joy of the PS1 port. At the time I was console only back then and my only access to Doom PC was the office PCs and shareware. PS1 was the first I owned Doom. I remember a mate once drove his TV round mine for the linked play :)

  • Activision bigs up Destiny 2 launch, without revealing sales

  • bad09 16/09/2017

    @Drygore

    There's no real contest, consoles sell a ton more games.
    Depends on how you look at it, a single publisher may earn more on 2 console compared to PC but in terms of total revenue consoles are still back of the bus. More games sold on PC just over a lot more than several games.

  • Call of Duty: WW2 is getting an open beta on PC this month

  • bad09 15/09/2017

    Might have a look at the beta, might be nice to go back to WWII with COD but Titanfall 2 has kinda ruined me for other online shooters though. I rarely play anything online these days. Downloaded Battlefield 4 and 1 on Origin access and still not touched them. Reply 0
  • Blizzard's Jeff Kaplan says toxic behaviour is slowing Overwatch development

  • bad09 14/09/2017

    I still struggle with "toxic" players, it's a fucking game get a grip. It's people so you'll always get idiots but do I wonder why certain games attract these arseholes in large numbers so it gets to this point?

    Maybe it's certain games attract a certain age demographic, COD is full arshats to and we know a lot of kids play it. Maybe it's loads of teenage virgins angry with the world?

    Or maybe the mechanics in the game make online a struggle which raises tensions and starts taking the fun out of it so people start getting angry with each other, like the guy on here who thought putting experienced players with new guys to help them learn was a "punishment" in that DOTA game because it's serious stuff as he needs to win to grind and grind?

    Who knows but I must say that's another feather in Titanfall's cap though, on PC at least the community is wonderfully civil with each other in my experience and I never see anything like that at all.

  • Apple reveals iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X

  • bad09 12/09/2017

    @Brave27heart

    Over $1000 for a phone??

    Man...my first ever Nokia cost me £100. How did phone prices escalate so much?
    While £1000 is a bloody lot and far too much (it is Apple after all, you expect stupid overpricing!) you have to remember mobile "phones" have come a long way from your first ever nokia. These things are more like mini computers now, in many ways they are the real world answer to Star Treks Tricorder, hell I use my phone more for things I do on a computer than making calls :)

    Most dont actually pay that upfront anyway, most people (in the UK at least) have their phones through contracts that means you don't actually pay that upfront. Very few will rush out and spend a 1000 quid on one upfront.

    It's a hard subject, I'm in the UK and you know what racism is practically dead or at the very least frowned upon by most. It is and I know it is because I never get it anymore (suffered a lot in the 80's), it's rare now and generally frowned upon by brits (maybe not inside but outside we're britsh my fellow!). Many of my "ethnic" friends are doing far better than my council estate white friends to.

    I live in Britain though not the states where slavery is still sensitive and in general Americans are mad anyway. What?
    They are, sorry....

    Like the "A rich black guy would have an easier life than a poor white guy", you're picking extreme examples to try and make a general point.
    Not really. I guess it depends on where you are in the world but I know in my circles far more black, asian and indian guys and gals come from better backgrounds and have done better for themselves.

  • bad09 07/09/2017

    Well that's a bit shit. I made my character look like me in the first and while I'm a shade of brown I don't really want colour dictated by the games difficulty and if I want to play the harder modes in this I have to play using a character that doesn't look like me.

    I get the joke but it's not that great a joke and it kills the customisation of your character dead IMO.

    The more of this kind of crap I see in new, paid-for games, the more seriously I consider a future as a retro-only gamer.
    Why consider? It's not going to get better only worse, I think it's time everyone just excepts this is the kind of chancing fleecing companies want to do, especially in the so called "triple A" area (why do think DLC is becoming free a lot lately? In game stores to fleece utter mugs.

    Find a new hobby if you see this sort of grubby behavior for what it truly is as it won't be going anywhere until this industry eats itself.

    Lack of mouse control has never been the problem with RTS on console. Creative assembly have always said it's not the control method that stopped Total War going to console it was always the hardware was not up to the job.

  • What does it take to run Destiny 2 at 1080p60?

  • bad09 02/09/2017

    @Rack

    Well it depends on what you want. Of course the readership of EG and many sites are weird dribbling fanboy types but some like to to know the practical function. Sometimes you've got lesser capable machines throughout the home and it's nice to see what they can do.

    @Rack

    These articles always strike me as weird. Here's a £400 PC build that can run Destiny 2, a handful of recentish games and almost no upcoming games.

    Why would you do that? Either get a decent system that runs most games well or just play it on a console. You'd have to be REALLY obsessed with Destiny 2, while simultaneously not interested in getting the highest settings to buy a PC solely for running it.
    Whose saying they would buy it just for Destiny 2?

    Not everyone can afford a monster system and lower systems make up a lot of the market, it's why good PC versions that scale well are important.

    As for "why not buy a console instead?", well that cuts you off from a very large catalogue of games and many people don't fancy that choice. Gaming isn't just the latest triple A hype machine, there's a lot of games out there and a very large majority of them are not available on a console.

  • You can now play the impressive fan remake of Tomb Raider 2

  • bad09 02/09/2017

    @VanillaLake

    I think I did a couple of icon chasing mini missions they called tombs but ultimately all the the murder death kill that was the bulk of thing meant I stopped playing it as It offered nothing to me as tomb raider fan and a few icons on its collectathon map dedicated to simple quick puzzles didn't change that.

    @VanillaLake

    Found the first one in the reboot dull as dishwater myself. Great if you wanted a repetitive icon chasing shooter, utterly worthless if you wanted a Tomb Raider game, I never even bothered with the 2nd one. Same for my wife who loves TR games, she didn't play it, she watched me playing it and said "That's what they've done to Tomb Raider? No thanks".....after I'd just bought it for her in the first place :rolleyes:

    This though, I'd pay money for a full game. Hope they manage to recreate the whole thing I'd be on it like Lara on a pair of tight shorts.

    DRM isn’t treating all consumers like pirates, it’s just deterring those that are pirates from pirating the game.
    Those that do pirate simply wait for a cracked version, DRM is a leash to control legal purchasers. So you are right they are not treating all consumers like pirates with DRM.....pirates get the better product...for free...

    @Billy-Daniels

    Yes, the moment Microsoft attempted to make consoles require an internet connection and end the second hand game market I decided I'd never buy another product from them.
    What happens when Sony do it in PS5? :)

    You know that Sony were supposedly doing it as well before MS got that backlash right? It was originally a plan to implement DRM on both new consoles and it was down to publisher pressure rather than MS or Sony, publishers saw the likes of Steam and wanted similar DRM on consoles to combat the huge damage of 2nd hand. Of course more copies sold put money in their pocket so the console makers agreed.

    MS announced first...then the world exploded, retailers didn't like it, Sony chickened out and MS backtracked. Many publisher suits were upset the plan had not worked.

    Mark my words there will be another attempt to get it on both consoles next round and given how physical is shrinking all the time compared to digital it will probably be easier to get through next time as bricks and mortar retail power grows ever weaker.

    Lucus did intentionally aim Ep1 at a much younger audience than the originals (it's why it feels more like a Disney movie at times).

    The genuine reason for that was, after his experience in merchandising and the original trilogy, he wanted to ensure they were buying toys from a much younger age from the off :)
