  • Star Wars: Battlefront has 40-player cap, no campaign

  • danger.to.others 18/04/2015

    Fellow gamers, proceed with caution.
    Remember that those fond memories you have of either Star Wars Battlefront or even Battlefield 2 or 1942 weren't made by the same people.
    The developer name might be DICE, but employees come and go and the people working there today that are bringing you this Star Wars are the people who brought you Battlefield 4, not those classics.
    And Battlefield 4 didn''t handle lag well at all with it's big maps, at least not on my PS4.

    Don't be blinded by short memories of how truly terrible BF4 was on a technical level or simply because a game has a Star Wars skin over it.
    This might end up great....but the wise gamer will be skeptical and wary of hype.

    I don't want it to be bad. I simply won't assume it will be good. Not after that last mess. This is not the DICE of yesteryear.

    When all the staff change at once in a shop it's not exactly a Shelock Holmes level of difficulty to figure out.
    When they do clean sweeps, the staff were all stealing and working together at doing it. Happens a lot, especially at low paying jobs.

  • Gaming convention threatens to abandon Indiana if anti-gay bill passes

    In my experience, the people who are offended by homosexuality are closeted homosexuals themselves that are ashamed of it because the fairy tales (uh, no pun intended) they were raised on told them to, who then go overboard about it when trying to hide something everyone can already see about them.
    To hate something requires a lot of passion involved about it!
    The one thing I appreciate about a loudmouth bigot is they make it easy for me to not give them any money or support.
    I'm not gay, but I have no problem with it. Gay people never ring my doorbell to ask if I'd like to join a cult.
    Now those people I have a problem with! If I wanted saving, I'm perfectly capable of finding a church. Don't come to my home.
    This law is a joke. But then, so is believing in the Bible as facts.

    I like that Ubi called game site people influencers instead of journalists. Meaning no insult, it's a much more accurate title as to what they do.

    Far as Rainbow Six, no terrorist hunt, no sale. Waiting patiently for the announcement that's included.
    Me and my wife met through playing R6: Vegas, so Ubi would have to screw up pretty bad to lose my sale.
    R6 will always have a special spot with us.

    Dying Light also had the best product placement in a TV show I've ever seen.

    Check out this set up. There's a new show in America called IZombie. Girl becomes a zombie, but everyone just thinks she's gone goth with her look, not that she's actually undead.
    Working in the morgue, she can eat brains and get the memories of those dead to solve murders. (I watch only the most high brow of television).
    She broke up with her boyfriend who she planned to marry because she's afraid she might not be able to control herself and eat his brains. But time goes by and she thinks she has a hold on it, now she thinks they could be together.
    So off she goes to her boyfriend's house to ask for him back. She gets to the door, but stops when she hears her boyfriend and a girl laughing inside.
    She looks through the window and sees him on the couch laughing away and obviously close and comfortable with the new girl....while playing Dying Light! So yes, zombie girl saw her living boyfriend not just with someone else, but playing a game of massacring her people.

    All that was the pilot episode. I know I'm going to watch more.

    Anyway, the Dying Light promo was a nice touch. Made me laugh.

  • Homefront: The Revolution delayed until 2016

  • danger.to.others 12/03/2015

    Considering how shit the gameplay was that Crytek showed before the title was bought, it's understandable more time is needed to make it a good game.

    I'll never understand the drama queens who hear a delay and suddenly proclaim no games are going to come out.
    How new to games are they? Games get delayed all the time for AT LEAST the last 10 years on a semi-regular basis.
    People complain when a game is buggy and rushed, yet complain when a game is delayed so they can properly finish it.

  • Prey developer Human Head announces survival horror Lost Within

  • danger.to.others 10/03/2015

    Prey was a good idea, bad execution. Indian storyline? Excellent idea. Throw a quick couple stereotypes and then just sort of otherwise forget the cultural aspect for the rest of the game? Not such a good idea.
    It wasn't a horrible game, simply a generic one. They took the Quake engine and made a Quake clone. No bad flaws, but no imagination. The most unique thing was not reloading when you died. Which was a minor gimmick.
    Average studio having average success. Sounds about right. Not surprised at all when they lost Prey 2.

  • Ninja Theory cut one of Devil May Cry's most sexually suggestive lines for Definitive Edition

  • danger.to.others 09/03/2015

    I don't care if that line is in the game or not. But I will take a moment and (likely be the only one to) say I thought it was a great line.
    I remember it and it made me laugh. Different tastes and all that. My wife thought it was great too.

    But no, we must keep it dignified in our adult rated demon slaughtering games.
    I do get the feeling it was removed out of fear of the last year with gaming sites going hyper sensitive on the feminist front. I don't buy the story the developers around the office never liked it.

    If they remove things because they truly want to improve their product, go for it.
    Just be a shame if they felt scared to have it in there for fear of sales backlash.
    Won't change the world having or not having a single line. It's minor, but it'd still be sad commentary on the lack of backbone for Ninja Theory.

    Not so strange for it to be 4 months after the movie.
    That way, it gives the new generation of kids time to see, get to know and hopefully like the new Mad Max and have more interest in a game based off it.

  • Ready at Dawn responds to concern over The Order: 1886 campaign length

  • danger.to.others 16/02/2015

    If they priced it at half the normal price, which makes sense to me if you have half the amount of an average game, they'd be hailed pioneers and innovators and all kinds of other fancy words and likely sold so much they would profit more than they will the amount who buy it full price.
    Missed opportunity.

    I see both sides. I agree with wanting different types of games. I'm all for there being Call Of Duty's, Dragon Age's and Heavy Rain's, for example.
    But you must PRICE ACCORDINGLY.
    They deserve the backlash for a single player only game to be that short and full price. I am confident in what I've seen I'm going to love this game. But I'm still waiting till it drops to about half the price before I buy it.

    This is why I'll no longer buy online games on day one. None of these companies even bother. They simply fix it while it's out since people buy it anyway.
    It's not worth buying any multi or co-op games until they've been out at least two months, these days. And gamers have only themselves to blame. I promise you, if launch sales crumbled, these companies would release with their software actually working correctly.

    There's many games out there I wish had the same strength of resolve and vision. Mostly made by Ubisoft.

    All I need is better graphics, tighter controls, improved AI and I'm good. (Which is true of just about any sequel to any game)

  • Ubisoft deactivating keys it says were "fraudulently" obtained and resold

  • danger.to.others 26/01/2015

    Let the buyer beware.
    It's another sad commentary on our the current state of mind when people get mad at a company doing something about someone stealing their product.
    Just because it's digital does not mean it isn't actual product. What G2A do is the internet equivalent of people seeing that guy selling stuff out the back of his car for dirt cheap compared to the legitimate stores.
    And when you buy from that guy you take your chances.

    It's interesting about people who will go the cheapest route even when they know it's questionable in it's legality or, even worse, will pirate. (because not being able to afford to get something right away is not an option, you'll have that game NOW, one way or another. How dare a company not price within your personal budget?)
    The sooner we get technology running to a degree, (which I think we can all agree we're not at that point yet, but it's coming) where all games can conveniently go digital download and we see the end of most piracy, the official game prices will likely drop.
    The reason official prices are as high as they are is because of the amount of people who didn't purchase the game in the first place. They do have to make SOME profit. And unfortunately it's always the honest person who ends up footing the bill of freeloaders in any financial scenario.

    But this is really pathetic, seeing so many who blame Ubisoft in this particular case.
    If I wrote a book and then found someone had stolen a batch of them and were selling them for dirt cheap and I saw zero money from my work, bet your ass I'm putting the cops on you.

    Not everyone, but rather people who think these cheaters aren't to blame, because it's CoD's fault for having leveling up. Which from what I see as I post to make up most of the thread.
    Incredible level of lack of accountability. To me, the biggest problem with Call OF Duty has never been the actual multiplayer, it's the players unable to play an honest game. Instead they are concerned with the highest level number, as if it impresses anyone.
    It doesn't.
    Only thing that impresses me about another player is meeting someone with a good attitude and manners who plays fair. Needless to say, I'm not impressed often.

    Good for Sledgehammer for at least trying to tackle some of these people who go into a mode involving other people and think only of themselves.

    I'd be happy with a 30fps lock.
    I'm not one to get motion sickness. I've played truly horrible games on a tech level over my lifetime of gaming and never gotten dizzy or sick. That is, except for ONE game out of the thousands I've played.
    Saints Row 4 on PS3....man, am I glad I got it on sale for ten bucks. Because of the framerate fluctuating so much constantly, it's the first game my brain couldn't handle and made me feel sick.
    I tried to soldier on. I've survived an entire series of Assassin's Creed and Sonic Adventure's 2's camera, I figured I could surely make it through this.
    The shame of it is there is a funny game underneath the framerate mess. But even here, according to the article the PS4 version might have a high framerate, but it's all over the place. Which scares me away, since I don't trust my nausea coming back.

    Lock it and I'd buy. No framerate lock and you lose the sale. Simple as that.

  • Assassin's Creed Unity: Dead Kings review

  • danger.to.others 15/01/2015

    While it's absolutely justified in the backlash from the technical bugs it released as, it's a shame it ruined the fact Unity has the most likable character and best story, as well as some great new ideas (competitive combat weekly contests, the co-op itself, murder mysteries, the slightly altered for the better controls) of the entire series.
    Anyone who used to be an Assassin's Creed fan should check out the game now, even if only by rental. Aside from a funny AI glitch here and there that rarely if ever interferes with gameplay, it's patched up good now. Had it released in the state it is now, I'm confident this would have been the most popular AC yet.
    I'm just glad the DLC finally came. I'm already Legend and conquered everything in the game. Hopefully having mastered the game won't make the DLC too easy.

    But again, give Unity a try if you sat it out because of the glitches. If you like that style of game, this is the best yet.

  • North America gets $15-a-month PlayStation Now subscription service

  • danger.to.others 05/01/2015

    Sony's not off to a great new year for me.
    First, here it is the fifth of January and I'm in Texas (in America) in a location with good broadband and all four directly plugged into the router consoles (two PS3's, two PS4's) and PS4 is STILL buggy.
    Sure, it logs in. But it's like playing the lottery if any multi will work per individual game, or sometimes the store can open fine, other times not at all.
    Though you might get into that store if you disconnect and reconnect. We got our free Far Cry 4 because we had a season pass for Unity. Downloaded it onto one PS4 yesterday fine. But today it can't download anything on the other system (and it is all on Sony's end. Also, those unaware, digital copies run on up to two different consoles as long as the same account is on each machine. We do it all the time).
    It's just a buggy mess. Call Of Duty's servers are supposedly down, according to a box that pops up and Unity....well, Unity we (wife and me) cheered at the pathetic progress of Ubi's servers working and Uplay opening for the first time since Xmas. Only....the co-op still can't hook up a game. So it's being worked on, but STILL not there.
    At least over on PS3 everything is fine. They got that back up and running perfectly around the 28th or 29th. Not buggy, everything normal. It's just PS4 that's all over the place, though it's odd to me how quiet the internet seems to be about PS4 still being terrible.
    And watching Hulu or Netflix? Not happening on PS4. Luckily, or lucky in my case, PS3 plays it. But PS4 is messed up STILL even with those apps.

    And now, with none of this mess fully sorted, they have the balls to announce Playstation Now coming with a monthly fee? Good luck. Maybe keep your mouth shut about starting up an online service till you fix the one you have.
    I'm old, have more disposable income, and spend a lot of money on games. I know it's more than the average. I spend thousands of dollars a year. I'm a big fan, so it's what me and my wife spend on. Bought a lot of digital, as well.
    But enough's enough. Sony, you're losing a lot of money with me. I'll still buy my single player games (disc only), but digital only games and games where the main reason to buy is multi (like a Call Of Duty or Killzone, things like that), no more.
    Both you and Microsoft are so ridiculously fragile and flaky about connections and open to attack, my spending will be a lot less.
    And a streaming rental service? Here's one person you will NEVER see a sale from.

    Get your act together or I'm sure there'll be a lot more one time big spenders who will decide to do the same as I am.

    The thing Microsoft should be sweating about going into year two isn't really the hardware.
    They should be worried as more of their first party games by developers who've had awhile with the hardware to be used to PS4 start releasing games.
    That's the really trump card of Sony versus Microsoft. Xbox only has Forza and Halo these days in it's first party stable....and it's a Halo without Bungie.

    So old consoles can't keep up with the new consoles that are now a year old. About as shocking as finding out cigarettes are bad for you.

    I understand holding on to your old consoles to play the old games. I do the same. But if gaming is your hobby of choice, at some point you have to move forward.
    I can't imagine how anyone would be gullible enough to buy a new 2014 game made for PS4/XB1 on a PS3/360 and expect it to run well.
    Although, shame on the developers and publishers for taking advantage of those gullible fools. (I would assume most those customers would be uninformed parents buying for their kid). Not nice picking the bones of the ignorant.

    Still....interesting enough read. Sorry you had to take a bullet for the team and waste your time trying to play these old versions of Mordor. I'm just thankfully Mordor on my PS4 is excellent.
    Any problems it has aren't technical ones. On the polished front, it's excellent.

  • Ninja Theory's Devil May Cry hits PS4 and Xbox One next year in 60fps and 1080p

  • danger.to.others 15/12/2014

    Call me shallow. I liked DMC for it's gameplay and levels. What I could never get over was his look.
    They dressed Dante like every superior complex bratty hipster who looks down on everyone around them for not being cool like them. (Yes, I am aware of the irony that those who behave that way created MY looking down on THEM)
    That was not the road to take visually to create a likable character for me.

    So yeah, I'm shallow. If Dante looked different I otherwise like the game. Thankfully they solved the problem by offering a skin where you could play as original Dante, so most the problem solved.
    What Ninja Theory failed to grasp was the difference between sarcastic and just stupid when it came to his dialogue. Old Dante was corny, but roll of the eyes likable. New Dante was a brat who I wanted to see killed every time i played.
