  • What works and what doesn't in Horizon Zero Dawn

  • brazzauk 24/02/2017

    Love Digital Foundry stuff.

    Cant wait for this, looks amazing and only Eurogamer and one other scored 6 or lower. Not ever recommended seems like more and more of a joke. The move away from a scoring system has made the reviews seem pointless on here, opinion lead which is fine but many seem off from the end point of the review. FFXV and Res 7 were positive overall and scored a 6. Just removing the scoring doesnt mean its not obvious.

    Essential - 9 or 10
    Recommended - 7 or 8

    So EG is saying a game of this quality and size is a 6 because they weren't sold on the story, mmmm.

  • Final Fantasy 15's story is being patched

  • brazzauk 07/12/2016

    So because a number of people can't follow the plot they have to cater to the spoon fed generation. Nice.

    Sorry but this was not a confusing plot at all but we now live in a whining entitled world.

  • EA defends Star Wars Battlefront sales after GameStop claims launch "underperformed"

  • brazzauk 03/12/2015

    WTF is a hardcore gamer? Too lightweight for hard core gamers..... please.

    This term interests me, I have all platforms and thousands of games. My main hobby is gaming but I like this game. So what makes you hardcore?

  • Star Wars: Battlefront's Battle of Jakku DLC introduces Turning Point mode

  • brazzauk 25/11/2015

    @felicitous_blue Agree, posted something similar the other day. Games should be fun and if I get three months out of this that seems like good value. Loved Last of Us to death but finished it in 16 hours and never went back. Value should be judged on numerous things and not every game released is a game of the year. Reply 0
  • Star Wars Battlefront biggest ever Star Wars game launch in UK

  • brazzauk 23/11/2015

    Maybe this proves that people are happy to buy a game they might enjoy rather than every game having to be game of the year.

    Level 25 in it now and still enjoy every game I play. Agree it needs content but the criticism of the gameplay is unfair and usually come from people who have already decided they didn't like it before it was released.

    The other comment I read about it is that people won't be playing in six months, single player driven game often have between 12 and 30 hours gameplay so isnt 3 to 6 months value in comparison?

    The lack of maps is annoying but the game is still fun when you are in it.

  • Star Wars Battlefront feels like a return to the GoldenEye era

  • brazzauk 16/11/2015

    Enjoyed the alpha and the beta and enjoyed my 10 hours on Xbone. I love whats there but I am just not sure there is enough when it comes to content to sustain it for the long term without the DLC.

    This concern was clear to EA hence the announcement of the 16 new maps plus Jakku and more heros, weapons, ships and cards. So in essence to get the full game you need the game plus DLC. I will get it because I can but for some its an issues and I think this approach is now so common place now that its ruining games.

  • 10 minutes of Star Wars: Battlefront alpha footage leak

  • brazzauk 14/09/2015

    I love how people are slamming this without even playing it. I was on the alpha and really enjoyed it. Keep reading how generic it looks, really what did people expect a shooter game to be? The concept is to shoot them and they have to shoot you. That is the genre.

    The gaming community is becoming so cynical and negative. It appears that every game released should be genre defining. Most gamers now seem have the same attitude to games that teenagers have on the world, its great or its shit, black or white with no shades of gray. I play games to be entertained first and foremost. Most of the negative comments from people on unreleased games comes from a position where they have already decided they don't like the game and then use words like generic to justify that position.

    I am getting old that much is clear because this used to be an entertaining way to spend some time, not anymore apparently.

  • Why Destiny ditched Peter Dinklage

  • brazzauk 11/08/2015

    Destiny is a weird game overall. I can't say I love this game but whenever I do play it I really enjoy my time in it. There is a lot of talk of RPG in the article but I think that the story is way to light to be considered an RPG and there is not enough loot to be a loot hogging game. So that puts me back to where I started, although I enjoy it when I am in game I really don't know why. Reply +1

  • brazzauk 09/02/2015

    Tried the alpha and beta of this and though I enjoyed it for a bit I only played a handful of games each time. It just didnt have enough to make me want to keep playing it. Preorder was cancelled after the beta, this will be a wait and see how it Evolves. Reply +3

  • Face-Off: PES 2015

  • brazzauk 05/12/2014

    PC version is horrible to look at, looks like PES 4 and the online is just flat broken. Got the PS4 one but you can't import for edit mode.

    Konami have an amazing knack of blowing it for PES every year!

  • WWE 2K15 review

  • brazzauk 27/11/2014

    Can't agree with this being a 3. The core fighting engine for me is the best in years, it has the right pacing and the momentum swings in the matches means it has a good feel to it. At the core its how it plays, that more important than the features.

    Most reviews I see are happy to shout about whats missing and not focus on what the game does well.

    My son and I have ploughed through career and the showcases and have got more out of this than a lot of games that score way over 3.

    7/10 for me. What's there is good. Don't believe in scoring based on whats not there.

  • Face-Off: Assassin's Creed Unity

  • brazzauk 17/11/2014

    I have played a couple of hours on the pc and overall I was very impressed with the sheer amount of detail that has been put into this game, it look great. And I think that is the main problem, it seems clear that the entire focus of the devs was to produce and amazing looking AC game but nothing beyond that. Same game in a new suit. Reply +7
  • Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 review

  • brazzauk 14/11/2014

    Not sure what to make of this game so far. Pace seems spot on but it feels like I am on rails most of the time. Players don't seem to respond to my input. Delays when I pass and shoot make it frustrating. Defending seems hit and miss to me as well. Chipped through balls seem to be the killer just like FIFA 14. Played a few online and EVERY player I played against used Real (wonder why, oh yeah through balls!)

    Only a couple of hours in but so far there is no way this is a 9 for me. No better than FIFA 15 but with worse presentation and atrocious commentary.I want PES to get back to the glory days of the PS2 but just wanting it to be good and people disliking FIFA shouldn't make this game a 9.

  • Face-Off: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

  • brazzauk 07/11/2014

    Nice performance review for the PC but I cant say if its right because the game crashes or gets kicked from online games all the time, in one whole hour I didn't get one game to completion.

    Mouse movement issues and input lag at seemed to be an issue, load hangs, crashes. In short a total mess that didnt even get to use the GTX970 I have.

    Activision, this is why we love you. The steam forums are gushing with 'praise' for this release.

  • We cannot let this become gaming culture

  • brazzauk 17/10/2014

    So if someone has a fight at a football match then all people there are there to fight? Blanket statements, lumping all people in the same bucket, nice work there.

    Are there racist gamers, yes. are there women hating gamers, yes. Do that mean all are, no. There are also far left gamers, far right gamers, men hating gamers, and so on and so on.

    There is the same in all areas of society but if the actions of a minority within a group is how you want to portray the whole group then you are part of the issue. There will always be people who attach themselves to something for their own agenda.

    This whole gamergate bores the shit out of me, both sides are full of crap but dont lump everyone together because a few self serving douchebags want some media attention.

  • brazzauk 13/08/2014

    @Illusive_Man You are joking right. My initial point was not having a reason to buy a one and you highlight games that will only run the same as on the PS4 I already own. As for Sunset Overdrive its an unknown.

    Dont give a shit about Skype, its not a game. i have a phone that can do that, I have a tablet that can do that. Care as much about twitch.

    Smite is a good addition but I have it on PC and will only play it on that format, Planetside 2 is better than anything you have listed here and thats F2P on PS4 and PC. Diablo III is years old and again its better on PC and then you have exclusive content on the PS4.

    You Sir are a plant! Who other than PR and marketers say fall lineup?

This is the only time I have no interest in the Xbox console. It lacks focus and doesnt know what it is. I questions the statement there are so many great AAA games coming this year!

    Still not been given a reason to buy and Xbox one and this wont be it. Was mildly interested in DR3 and marginally interested in Ryse and now I will play both on my PC and a much lower price. I liked the Tomb Raider reboot but not enough to make me drop 300+ on a machine to play it especially with Drake around the corner.

    I just dont understand Microsoft at the moment. There may well be a good console in there somewhere but I cant see it.

    PC is the best format for gaming at the moment but I found a reason for my PS4 purchase, even found a reason for the Wii U I purchased but cannot find anything to justify the XBone.

    Am I missing something?

  • Digital Foundry vs. inFamous: Second Son

  • brazzauk 27/03/2014

    Last of Us was my favorite game of this type but that was due to an amazing narrative. I find that all games are an extension of older game types so to say this isn't next gen in its gameplay doesnt really sit with me.

    I am about 40% of the way through this game and i am really enjoying it. It looks amazing and plays well and the story is solid. Think 7 was too harsh, gaming is subjective though and I have always found the EG reviews of Infamous arent right for me.

    I agree with the review, 8 seems fair. Enjoying it a great deal on PC but it just seems a bit limited on options.

    I keep waiting for a reason to get the XBone but it just isnt there. I got this for 27 on PC and it a far better version.

    Hard to justify the money. It really seems that spending 700 on the PC is a way better investment. It may be another 300 but the money you save on GMG or Steam will get that money back in a year!

    I cant understand how MS got this so badly wrong after a really good unit in the 360.
