  • Metal Gear Solid 5 just got one of the craziest microtransactions yet

  • danger.to.others 06/10/2015

    I have the best FOB insurance for free. I simply choose decline at the launch of the game asking if I'll agree with the online contract and the game starts without the online part and I enjoy countless hours in single player.
    FOB problem solved.

  • Star Wars Battlefront won't have microtransactions

  • danger.to.others 05/10/2015

    Notice his wording. "Yes. That's what's in the game. Absolutely."
    All he technically confirmed is that eventually everything can be earned without purchase. That does not mean there aren't microtransactions for people to 'speed it up' with unlocks and be maxed up out on the, ahem, battlefield.
    So those that hated battlefield games where some instantly unlocked all the guns or whatever the leveling may be, given his careful phrasing it's all but guarenteed to be in there.

  • Here's what you get if you pay full price for the new Hitman

  • danger.to.others 29/09/2015

    People always complain about game prices and added dlc and season passes.
    Yet here comes Io to try offering a game with no season pass/nickle and dime to death DLC and an opportunity to buy half the game at lower price or the full for those fans into it.
    One month apart for levels this large (assuming they all are and I'm betting they are. Paris alone has 800 contracts ingame, let alone live events) is good pacing for this type of game.
    And yet gamers still complain when offered a chance to go cheaper for the more hesitant with no extra fees, such as those season passes.
    As long as the quality is there, this is a brilliant layout. Not every game would benefit from this style of release, but Hitman comes across as a good match to me.
    Personally, I like Io. Despite the web's overwhelming view, I also liked Absolution AND the Kane and Lynch games, not only Blood Money.
    So I'm one of those sure to be called idiots who is pre-ordered, as I have faith in the developer.
    I see what, so far, looks to be an incredible game that'll have tons of content with all the game included, not sold seperately.
    All you complaining for a full game have invalid arguments. Io made no secret about and said when all content is released it will put out all the game on disc.
    So you can skip out on live events and buy the game xmas, 2016.
    Disc or digital and no extra paid for content. I see nothing to be complaining about yet. Just go play something else till later, disc only people.

  • Rainbow Six: Siege won't have a campaign mode

  • danger.to.others 28/09/2015

    Interesting that Call Of Duty is adding to it's already large game and even expanding with it's solo mode, yet competitors Battlefront and Rainbow can't be bothered with single player.
    My thing is, if you eliminate a campaign, I expect you to have more maps than ever to make up for that free time you had and AT LEAST a quarter of the price knocked off.
    But full price? Psshh. Fuck you.

    At least Treyarch isn't behaving like they take my sale for granted and are trying.

  • Assassin's Creed Syndicate takes a leap towards inclusivity with the series' first transgender character

  • danger.to.others 24/09/2015

    I'm not trying to be offensive, though I'm sure someone will anyway, but I found myself confused.
    When you say the character is trans male, is that a woman dressed like a man or a man dressed as a woman?
    It's not the most important of questions, I'm simply one of those who needs to understand all details, big or small. Just how I am.
    I do have a problem keeping all this trans stuff straight. Um, no pun intended.

  • You'll have to wait a little longer for Life is Strange's finale

  • danger.to.others 21/09/2015

    I am both glad it was a success since I loved Remember Me and didn't want to see Don't Nod go away, yet also hope it doesn't encourage them to stay episodic with future games.
    I supported them by buying the season pass day one (blind faith based on RM), yet after playing the first episode, which is great, I have put it aside waiting till all episodes are out so I can play them at my own pace.
    I never minded the wait between Walking Dead games, but Life Is Strange feels more like a game to play the episodes sooner than months apart.
    For me, I'll likely play them all at once over a couple days like a regular game released in one piece.
    Great game so far for me and I especially appreciate the different type story and characters for a video game, but the gap in releases was too damn long.

    I wish if people want to go episodic they had all their chapters already made and could release them on a closer, more set schedule. Like RE just did.
    Doesn't have to be only a week apart, but sooner than a fw months apart would be nice.

  • Horizon's look at violence in gaming was a balanced take on a stale debate

  • danger.to.others 17/09/2015

    Once I'd like to see someone looking into games on a scientific level hit on the good it does for certain mental problems.
    I can say for a fact, at least in America, (likely other parts, as well) shrinks out people with certain diagnosis that turn towards aggression to playing violent games as an outlet, towards curbing the anger or bloodlust, not making it worse.
    I have no idea what studies of violence are on a "normal" brain, but for a violently ill one it's a better result than any medication and has a large effect on the rest of their time off games if given even a hour or two of bloody gaming.
    It seems to be a fairly common held treatment (of such, there's obviously more going on than only games).
    You often only hear the negative about violent games, but in at least this one angle, they are a Godsend and much needed.
    Some people joke about killing people people virtually so they don't kill them in real life, but for some broken brains it is actually true.

    Though knowing this as I do, knowing it has a true difference on a brain unlike normal people, it does raise the likelihood all the more it's doing something to thise normal, healthy people. Only a question of it's a good or bad thing.
    But saying it has zero effect seems unlikey.

  • Hide the new Frozen Bejeweled console game from your children

  • danger.to.others 15/09/2015

    @BabyBabyBabyOh It's just a reskin. Not too bad a game for little kids who aren't gamers normally.
    I actually played it and I think I was able to go 30 or so levels before needing to pay.
    Of course, I didn't pay. I just quit. But my point is the difficulty is low enough there's a decent amount of game for a kid without buying anything, as long as they are content to not see the end. Not for free.

  • Video: Hellblade has noble ambitions but it also has us worried

  • danger.to.others 10/09/2015

    @NotToday As someone with some mental conditions (please tread politely on jokes about me saying that, I'm not being sarcastic) I'd disagree on mental conditions not defining you.
    They do. They completely alter who you are, where you can go and how you behave.
    I'm really hoping they make it a character, not a caricature. I hope all their sources weren't shrinks. You want to know mental, you need to talk to the mental. Shrinks just look at it from the outside, throw pills out like it's candy to numb them and then talk like they understand while getting it wrong about 85% of the time, in my experience.
    To me, the best mental person I ever saw in a game with their moods and phrases given the high stress environment was Lynch from Kane & Lynch.
    Those games, they did their homework on his personality.
    But unfortunately the gameplay was only okay and I don't think most people really noticed little things in his phrases and behaviors. But iO did good by the crazy guy.
    And just like real life, Lynch is very much defined by his mental illnesses. They make him who he us very distinctly compared to anyone else in that world.

    Please don't fuck this up, Hellblade. I'm curious to see your interpretation to certain illnesses.

    If his version of most Nintendo players struggling to play with a 3D camera is accurate, I would like to welcome them all to 1995.

  • Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain is series' biggest UK launch

  • danger.to.others 07/09/2015

    I think Until Dawn placing as high as it does is still a victory for innovative games.

    You can tell playing MGS5 the power struggle between Konami and Kojima.
    Where MGS4 is done with complete disregard for how a game is "supposed" to be and completely Kojima's vision done with some of the highest production values, MGS5 shows places they were trying to reel him in.
    He struggles to tell his story, with most of it being placed in cassette tapes. Give him only two locations and force him to pull a Dragon's Age 2, where he has to keep re-using the same areas over and over.
    Give him Sutherland, but cut down his lines to save money.
    And as most of us have heard, cut out the real ending.
    This us no way to treat such a genius storyteller.
    Thankfully, Kojima and his former team still did the best with what they could and gave us a great game with some incredible stealth levels and controls.
    But the whole thing feels like Kojima wants to soar like a bird and Konami has his wings clipped.
    Still a fantastic game despite Konami's interferance, but all signs show where it would have been truly legendary if they got out of his way.
    Some people say it and don't stick to it, but I will when I say I am done with Konami. This reaches beyond any bad treatment of an artist by a corporation I've ever seen.
    I just hope this hasn't soured Kojima on games. I'll buy whatever he makes.
    And we'll always be left wondering how well this would have sold without the Konami drama and how many well meaning people boycotted buying it in their way of supporting Kojima.
    28 years of his life! So wrong to end it like this.

  • Just Cause 2: that rare open-world game where you aren't comically miscast

  • danger.to.others 06/09/2015

    Nothing like the Just Cause 2 memory I have of connecting two jets on a runway after blocking the runway to make a jet traffic jam of pilots waiting to get in the air, then clearing the blockage and watching the jets proceed forward and explode so low in the air they managed to also chain react explosions across 4 other jets on the runway waiting to take off.
    I remember being a little sad back then for not getting a trophy for taking out 6 jets without firing a shot or using any explosives.

  • danger.to.others 04/09/2015

    I had one other thought. Did you notice Metal Gear, while the camera does zero in on body parts for a second (which I think Kojima is trying to laugh at the players who do get offended, as if to say "I know where you're looking!")....the game also zeroes in on men.
    I laughed when the camera was in movie in the beginning hours of the game and did that quick pan to the male hospital gown semi exposed buttcheeks.
    And it's because it happens male or female why I believe Kojima is being a prankster, as opposed to just trying to somehow be exploitive.
    Reply +2
  • danger.to.others 04/09/2015

    Incredible. An entire article where it never dawned on the writer that you possibly proved Kojima's point, where just because breasts (sorry, tits) are accentuated in the outfit, you are the one fixated on them.

    She isn't playing with them or trying to seduce. They're simply there. Meaning if you can't keep your eyes off them and thinking dirty, that speaks of your personality, not of Kojimas.
    I'm a 41 year old married straight man. Not sexually uptight, at least I don't think I am. Possibly in your mind you think this is impossible and a lie, but I wasn't staring continuously. I wasn't turned on. I wasn't thinking she was slutty or it was exploitive.
    I love my wife and only have eyes, sexually, for her. (That's the part I think you might have a hard time thinking is true, though it is.) Not all of us have sex issues and look at everything and everyone like pieces of meat.
    I also like some anime, yet never watched it because of scantly clothed girls in it. I mean, I'm not offended, to each their own, but I actually do watch for the stories and am not looking at these women as sex objects, even if others might be.

    What Kojima did with Echo is present her in less clothes without sexuality beng the reason. Then to blame the character's look for making you leer is the same type of thinking of when a woman gets raped who was wearing a mini skirt and saying "Well, she asked for it in those clothes!"
    No, the problem is the person who can't control themselves, who can't maintain their sexual urges, so they want others to dress more "proper".
    And proper is, of course, whatever someone else has deemed so.

    To me, Echo is covered up. Her nipples aren't exposed and her privates clothed. The rest is the wardrobe she wears to express herself, as we all do, some more boldly than others.
    If you can't stop thinking sex, you need the help. The world does not revolve around you, so others shouldn't have to adapt to your whims.

    That, in my interpretation, is Kojima's point. Man's still a genius and an artist, holding a mirror up to everyone even when you don't realize it.
    Or maybe I'm wrong and seeing something he never intended. Either way, if anyone is perverted, it's anyone who thinks Echo's look is perverted.

    Good God, I had no idea I had so much opinion on such a non-issue.

    Can you imagine if Kojima got to work on a Rockstar game?
    Their budget, their technical talent and let him go free reign on the plot and combine the dialogue of him and Houser.

    I hope Kojima isn't done with games, he keeps saying he wants to write books and make movies.
    I'm sure he'd be great at those things, but games are where he's needed.

    Phil Spencer said it best when he said Eurogamer were better spokespeople for Xbox than even he is.

  • Mafia 3 reveal set for Gamescom

  • danger.to.others 28/07/2015

    I never understood why they created an open world and then the game was nearly all corridor shooter.
    Story was both kind of good....yet kind of generic to every mob movie before it.
    Animations were stiff. Controls were just a bit on the loose side.
    Other than the main story there was nothing to do. And the main story wasn't very long, so that was a big issue.

    This series always felt just shy of greatness. Tighten up these problem areas and Mafia 3 might be the one worth owning. (As opposed to worth playing once, but as a rental).
    I personally wouldn't have gone as low as a 4 (I'd say 6), but still, I can see it being a 4 out of 10 for many. Of all the things to pick on Eurogamer for, I don't think this is one of them.
    Fair enough score on the past Mafias. Despite it all, I'm really hoping this comes out good.

    What's interesting is when a game this fast paced and graphically intense with such large scale can hit 1080p and 60 frames, it's an interesting question of whether this developer is more talented than the rest, or are many other developers that much more lazy about the technical end?

  • Should you install The Witcher 3 patch 1.07?

  • danger.to.others 19/07/2015

    While my game is running great on PS4 after the patch, thought I'd throw on here I play with all kinds of things turned off.
    I believe the only things on in my options are the mini map, showing objective, enemy health bars, and my own health bar.
    All other options and notifications are off, including the newly added turning off of blur motion.
    Maybe that's why I run well. Could the people chugging play with everything turned on?
    Skyrim was the same way. The more you turned off, the better it ran.
    I mention so those suffering might think to try turning it off as well. All the off things were needless clutter to begin with, for me personally.

    This article is strange to me. It doesn't match my experience, at least to my eyes. I'm not studying it THAT close.
    But I patched my PS4 and thought it was a huge, not slight, improvement in framerate. I assumed they locked it, since the framerate was all over the place before.
    In my 5 hours or so of playing with the patch, I don't recall any stutter. Not that I think stutter is completely gone from the game, but in my fights and travels so far I haven't had any. It was smooth for the first time since I've owned it.
    I was just telling my wife how much better everything felt after this patch only to pop by and see I must be delusional, if your tests are accurate.
    I don't know how, but my game is running excellent so far. The framerate prior was, while never unplayable, a bit of a nuisance. So far I'm happy with the changes.

  • Batman: Arkham Knight's first major DLC falls short

    @Fenbops Don't do it, man. I really like Arkham Knight too and am a big Batman fan, growing up on Batman comics and loved the idea of playing as Batgirl.
    This DLC is junk. I expected and don't mind it being short, but they (as the article accurately points out) did nothing with the character.
    No story, no personality other than the barest minimum and they ruined the fights.
    Their idea of fun was to hurl more people at you in a pile up than you see in the entire game. Just crowds of them hitting you.
    Basically it's unfair and tedious fights of thugs, a fight with Joker and Harley and done.
    I had a bad feeling as soon as I heard WB Montreal was making it. And the bad feeling was right.
    There is absolutely no reason to play this piece of....DLC. Go spend the money on a Batgirl comic. This was stupid and a waste of time and did nothing with having the use of Batgirl.

  • 1989 Batman movie skins coming to Arkham Knight

  • danger.to.others 15/07/2015

    @Foolish_Monkey Agreed. I think Nolan's movies were better than Burton, Bale was goofy.
    In an alternate universe I like to imagine 1989 Keaton making Batman movies with Nolan (while keeping the 1989 suit and car look).
    If course....the suit was a large reason we lost Keaton for a third Batman. And without Keaton, Burton wasn't interested and it all fell down like a row of dominoes.
    Other old people might remember how Keaton was saying the suit was horrible to wear. It weighed a lot and he couldn't move his neck at all.
    But it looked cool and the movies were fun while it lasted.

    I know the 1989 car is going to be the only skin for my Batmobile in Arkham Knight from now on.

    She seems really creative, but not much of a supervisor. So it's interesting EA would put her in another supervisor role.
    Hopefully it works out. I'm 50/50 on whether this is good news or not.

    CD Projekt have won my respect more than just about any other game company.
    Great developer with fair prices and plenty of support and respect for it's customer, as well as a deep passion for it's work.
    Shame these are rare qualities.
