  • FIFA 16 review

  • dsmx 28/09/2015

    I know people are moaning about this review vs the PES review but for me the reviewer had one question that he put to both games:

    Did I have fun playing it?

    He didn't in FIFA and did in PES and that's it, if he didn't have fun in FIFA how can he recommend it to other people? It's his opinion and his opinion is no more valid than your own opinion on FIFA the only difference between his opinion and your is his published on Eurogamer.

    I do so love this amazing collection of comments from people who haven't actually played PES 2016 or any PES in the last 10 years. Reply 0

    @FuzzyDuck Well I have PES 2015 on the PS4 and now have 2016 version and from my experience just from the demo let alone the full game I can't go back to the 2015 version. (The demo isn't quite the same as the full game, keepers are a bit better in the full game and the players have been slowed down a bit from the demo as well)

    The difference between how the games play is startling and the fact that players make intelligent runs without you prompting them is what I've been waiting for in a football game for decades.

    Elsewhere the main menu still isn't great but master league is much better, be a legend mode is better and even myclub has been improved and is much more interesting to play. Also edit mode it better allowing you to import kits, logos and manger pictures so you can make the game have all the official teams if you've got an hour or 2 free to fix it.

    Here's my review of PES2016: It's fun and you should buy it if you have interest in football games, even losing online if fun because you lose because your shit not because the game decides your not going to win. Reply +9
  • Metal Gear Solid 5 will have horse armour DLC

  • dsmx 17/09/2015

    @ChuckyIX I enjoyed doing that as well to unlock the tux, the infinity bandanna and the stealth camo. Also helped that MGS was an insanely good game. Reply +5

  • Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain review

  • dsmx 01/09/2015

    Not at all surprised about this review. They've taken the framework of peace walker and expanded it in all directions and peace walker was already an incredible game.

    This game takes everything from that and makes it better in every way imaginable if this ends up being the last proper metal gear game it's an incredible end to the series because topping it would take some doing I don't blame Hideo for putting his name all over it if I had made this kind of masterpiece I would definitely plaster my name everywhere on it because it is by far his best game.

    For those that have missed a few metal gears this is carrying on from MGS3 and Peacewalker and it's setting up plot strands for MGS1, 2 and 4 and even the early metal gear games from the 80's. It's a brilliantly constructed game, it's fun, varied, plenty of depth with only a few minor niggles in some areas that for the most part aren't that annoying.

  • Nvidia GeForce GTX 950 review

  • dsmx 22/08/2015

    @williamarthurfenton The xbox one isn't using Directx 12, directx 12 is for PC's. Reply -1
  • dsmx 22/08/2015

    @L_A_G You think DX12 is poised? It's taken years for DX11 to become more common and even now it's not always used

    I can't see anything that's going to make Directx 12 any different to all the previous versions of directx that were supposedly game changers for PC game development, couple years down the line it might be common however by that time AMD, Intel and Nvidia will of all released new products all of which will be better than what we have now.

  • Everything we just learnt about Destiny: The Taken King

    I was just thinking this second that eurogamer hadn't done enough destiny articles this week and thus another one was born, sorry guys. Reply -38
  • A great explanation for how oldschool graphics worked

  • dsmx 19/08/2015

    @IronSoldier The 48k version was 175 when it launched in 1982 or correcting for inflation, a little over 430 in todays money. Still not cheap but still very good value. Reply +18
  • DriveClub's latest update makes some big changes

  • dsmx 18/08/2015

    Driveclub is aimed at a very small section of the market, it's not for everyone and it's not trying to be for everyone.

    If all you want out of a driving game is to pick a car, a track and see how fast you can get around it on a level playing field to compared to everyone else in the world then driveclub is for you. If your not interested in that then there's loads of other driving games out there to play.

    Personally it's exactly what I've wanted out of a driving game in what feels like a decade and I'm glad it's not been filled with tonnes of superfluous features that distract you from the core aspect to me of any driving game, simply seeing how fast you can drive a car.

  • Metal Gear Solid 2: The first postmodern video game

  • dsmx 16/08/2015

    @Faramis MGS3 was an apology of sorts since a lot of people didn't really get MGS2 as well as love letter to the fans of the series since it was pretty much what a lot of people wanted from MGS2 and didn't get as well as a great homage to classic bond movies. It also helped it was brilliantly paced and....well it's just a brilliant, perfect game once they put in the 3rd person camera. Reply +1

  • Intel Skylake: Core i5 6600K review

  • dsmx 06/08/2015

    I still have my i5 2500k and it's still runs the latest games, yes this processor is better than it but there's still no real reason to upgrade to it from an i5 2500k which is both disappointing and rather impressive considering how long the i5 2500K has been out. That might change when DX12 games finally start coming out but that could be a year or 2 away by which time intel would of released another generation of processors. Reply +19

  • To the Batmobile? The trouble with Arkham Knight's biggest addition

  • dsmx 01/07/2015

    I like the batmobile in Arkham Knight and the vehicle it is reflects the kind of game Arkham Knight is as you progress.

    With that said part of me wanted a game that was a bit more sedate, it's all well and good having gotham city to explore but I don't really feel like a guardian of a city when the entire city is already abandoned to criminals and the streets are filled with enemy tanks.

    I still feel like it's a bit of a shame that we never got a batman game that played out like the animated series, we got the voices from it but we never really got to play a game that felt like one of the episodes.

  • The Taken King is the expansion Destiny has been waiting for

  • dsmx 01/07/2015

    This is a rip off and it's them testing the waters to see how much they can get away with charging for shitty amounts of content, but I suppose the precedent has been set since people bought the first game not that they would of known before purchase since reviewers neglected to mention how utterly devoid of content the base game was.

  • dsmx 01/07/2015

    So still less content than the F2P title Warframe then? Reply +10
  • AMD Radeon R9 Fury X review

  • dsmx 25/06/2015

    @MattEvansC3 That's kind of what I was getting at but didn't say, nvidia will wait until they can get 8 GB of HBM on a card and then probably rebadge a 980 ti with it on. That is of course if HBM is all it's cracked up to be. Reply 0
  • dsmx 25/06/2015

    Shame really, AMD's big chance to take a big leap past nvidia and at best they win in a few games at at worse are behind in a few others but nothing that's going to cause huge swathes of people to switch from nvidia to AMD.

    The worse thought is that AMD barely passed them in some games using an apparently much better memory system, now DX12 and some more mature drivers from AMD may change that but that also implies that nvidia won't improve their own drivers when dx12 launches.

    It would appear to me that if nvidia felt really lazy they could launch their next card as basically a slightly faster 980ti with HBM instead of GDDR5 and beat the fury in every benchmark. They probably won't but the temptation must be their to do that.

  • Bungie: extra Destiny content for all platforms when Sony timed-exclusives launch on Xbox

  • dsmx 24/06/2015

    @FortysixterUK I liked destiny up until I realised there's was so little content. What's there is fun but I was expecting a tin of quality street not a milkyway bar sized amount of content. Reply +2
  • dsmx 24/06/2015

    A game criminally short on content at launch, still criminally short of content now and then they have the cheek to charge 40 for some more content and I'll bet that even after you pay that it will still have less content than any of the borderlands titles or even the F2P title warframe.

  • Sony's E3 conference: an artful blend of nostalgia and big business

  • dsmx 16/06/2015

    Sony showed a lot of what people have been asking for, for years, however none of what they were asking for is coming this year.

    So your left with sony once again relying on 3rd party games for another Christmas and that would probably be more worrying if it wasn't for the fact that pretty much every 3rd party game runs better on the PS4 and the PS4 is now viewed by the general population as being the better console.

    Sony will be fine but Microsoft have an opportunity to catch up with sony this year if microsoft really push their system well and advertise it well because sony don't really have anything exclusive to push their system with this year and it looks likely that will carry on till next year as well.

Also for the most part sony's additional UI doesn't make that much of difference to the look of android unless you go for the simplified version buried away in the settings menu. Reply 0

  • Microsoft's difficult choice at E3 2015

  • dsmx 11/06/2015

    Seems a simple choice to me, Microsoft have a vast untapped market for xbox games, all those people who own a PC are potential customers for xbox games and Microsoft for years have refused to even consider a stupidly simple option for boosting sales of xbox games.

    Yes you'd lose a reason to buy an xbox but on the other hand you'd gain a market with hundreds of millions of units to sell to, from a business point of view I can't see a reason not to.
