    Never finished the game. After the worst seduction scene in the history of any medium (Naomi? and Otacon) I stopped playing. Not sure if I can make myself complete it... Reply -9
  • Until Dawn review

    @Mr-Writer Well I reckon your vocabulary issues are far more significant than your issues with spelling and grammar. That has nothing to do with dyslexia; just ignorance.

    Hope this helps.

    @Mr-Writer What a brave man. Poking fun at Xbox fanboys only. Even doing so preemptively. Doesn't say anything about your brand allegiance. Oh that's right, I forgot, you only have time and money to justify purchasing Sony consoles :rolleyes: Reply -5

    @Abdu@EG D4 is a very different game from this you muppet! And this is coming from someone who thinks D4 is average and Until Dawn great.

    Before you call CloudSkipa an Xbot, perhaps you should look at yourself in your SDF mirror ;).

    @cloudskipa It's a blast. Just imagine if Telltale Games built a game around a slasher flick with AAA graphics. Being a massive fan of slasher films, I am absolutely loving this :). Reply +5
  • frazzl 27/08/2015

    I am thoroughly enjoying this game at the moment. Two chapters through and the beginning of the third chapter seems to be just as much fun. Until Dawn is basically a combination of a Telltale Game and a David Cage game, where the story in question is one right out of a slasher flick. How could you possibly go wrong with that?

    And completely unsurprising to see Mr-Writer being a muppet, in the very first comment no less. Well done buddy, well done!

  • frazzl 28/08/2015

    @Antropie Seriously dude what is the point of your posts here? To tell everyone that the PS4 is more powerful? Everyone here knows that. The differences in hardware capability have been well documented. So apart from being a muppet and a troll, what do you hope to achieve? Reply +8
  • frazzl 28/08/2015

    @cloudskipa I agree. During the run of play I wouldn't be able to tell the difference. Even in static shots, like the ones provided here, the differences are minor in my opinion. Factors like controller preference are far less subtle in my opinion. As they were last generation. Reply -4
  • frazzl 28/08/2015

    @DarkSeptember Actually there are two things at play here. First you have a comparison between quantifiable metrics; resolution, frame-rate, etc. When it comes to the former the PS4 version is obviously better. When it comes to the latter, it seems that the differences are minor with the X1 perhaps having a slight edge (this is all based on the article btw).

    What you are neglecting to take into account is the qualitative assessment gamers make when playing games. Not all quantifiable differences are significant enough to make a qualitative difference for the end user (the gamer). This is what CloudSkipa is referring to when he says "virtual parity".

    Before you rubbish that notion I suggest you have a look at some double blind comparisons done within the audiophile community. People who swore they could tell differences between cheaper speaker cable and more expensive speaker cable, or between various levels of MP3 compression, did not perform anywhere near as convincingly in a double blind test.

    @L_A_G Sadly there is no point. He will argue that brand plays no role in his comments yet he exclusively slates the Xbox brand. Showing him evidence of this will only get you attacked about how you have no opinions and are a sociopath ;) Reply -2
  • frazzl 27/08/2015

    I got GZ for my PS4 and was going to get MGS5 for it as well, but with this analysis I think I will go for the X1 version; controller and achievement point preference. Reply -6
  • Devil's Third review

  • frazzl 27/08/2015

    @grassyknoll I did not communicate with you. I mentioned your name (and not just your name mind you) in a comment. And an innocuous one at that:

    "You don't like this game. My opinion is usually the opposite of yours. It's most probably worth checking out."

    You on the other hand communicated with me. So don't whinge when I reply back. Especially if you know you won't like my response ;).

    Edit: If I don't have an opinion, why do I rile you up so much? ROFLOL!

  • frazzl 27/08/2015

    @grassyknoll Um it's exactly what I explained to you before:

    Let me explain this as simply as possible. I have 0 respect for you or your opinions. This includes your opinions on what games are good and what games are bad. Why? Because our views are virtually in diametrical opposition.

    So it's great news you think this game is "shite". Just like it was great news you didn't like The Witcher 3. And why it was a bad omen when you gushed over Bloodborne.
    which is completely different from:

    I actually can't believe you're that much of a child that you have to like something others don't to prove some kind of weird point.
    If you think that what I said translates to what you have suggested, well it's time to stop playing games little buddy, and go back to primary school.

    @grassyknoll Well you were claiming that I did not own a Wii U. So I proved I had one. I asked you to put your money where your mouth is and prove you have one. Which you did. So why bring up that picture again?

    I actually can't believe you're that much of a child that you have to like something others don't to prove some kind of weird point.
    Where have I said or suggested that? Is your reading comprehension that poor or have you made the worst strawman argument in the history of the WWW? As for eating and drinking, I am going to assume that in order for you to do so, you live in an assisted care facility.

  • frazzl 27/08/2015

    @grassyknoll So why ask me if I wanted to see your Wii U again? Why do you feel the need to prove you have a Wii U?

    And I never said I like this title. In fact I said that based on preview videos it was obvious that the game would not "set the world on fire".

    What I did say, if your reading comprehension is up to par, is that it is a good sign that you don't like the game. Which it is. Most definitely. :cool:

    @grassyknoll Why would I need a picture of your Wii U? What does this have to do with Nintendo, or for that matter, Sony or MS? You really do have a fixation with console manufacturers.

    Let me explain this as simply as possible. I have 0 respect for you or your opinions. This includes your opinions on what games are good and what games are bad. Why? Because our views are virtually in diametrical opposition.

    So it's great news you think this game is "shite". Just like it was great news you didn't like The Witcher 3. And why it was a bad omen when you gushed over Bloodborne.

    TL;DR This has nothing to do with brand. It has everything to do with you :cool:

    @grassyknoll
    Why does Nintendo Europe want to publish this? It just makes no sense, better an empty schedule than filling it with a shite game.
    So it's obvious you dislike this game. Which is a positive. Why? Well...

    Probably going to call me racist / sexist / homophobic like you do any other person who challenges you.
    No. You are a moron. That's all. Which is exactly why it's a good thing you think this game is "shite" :cool:

    if detail had been sacrificed for solid performance, but this is a constant frame-dropper in outdoor areas and anywhere with a lot of explosions.
    I recall a certain other game having significant frame rate issues; drops and pacing, with nary a comment from Dick. If you're going to slate bad frame-rates do so consistently please.

    Anyway based on the various video trailers released for the game, it was obvious that it was not going to light the world on fire. But even a middle of the road title can be fun sometimes; and as a bonus both Dick and Grassy hate it. That's virtually a recommend in my book. Won't be picking this up day 1 but will definitely be adding this to my Wii U collection down the line.

  • frazzl 27/08/2015

    @Malek86 Well it's either a bump in frame-rate to 60 fps with minimal changes to the graphics apart from resolution (as in the Uncharted collection), or a massive improvement in graphics along with the boost in resolution with 30 fps maintained. Reply -2

  • Uncharted: the Nathan Drake Collection is more than just a remaster

  • frazzl 23/08/2015

    I apologize to the thread in general for going back on what I said before and engaging again, but I think the post a-double-vodka made, that I received as a notification, warrants a reply. Here it is as he has since edited it (unsurprisingly):


    @frazzl Instead of being the bigger man and saying..OK I jumped the gun you continue to try an wriggle your way out of it.

    You are the one who accused someone of being homophobic.
    You are the one who associates that activity with gay men.
    You are the one using your race as some form of justification for your argument.

    Stop projecting your mistake on to others.
    So where do I start? How about following your own advice buddy. Let's start with the obvious. Like admitting to jumping the gun and accusing me of associating "that activity with gay men". Something I have not done. At all. Or how about pointing the finger at other members for blatantly lying; where have I called anyone a racist here? I don't see you asking shotbyascot to be the bigger man. Again completely unsurprising.

    But let's delve a little bit deeper. Let's start with the fact that all this outrage from the likes of you, Mr. Writer, shotbyascot, illgameonanything stems from me interpreting the phrase "stick it up your ass" differently. So apparently this is UK phraseology for "you can keep it".

    Well last I checked this is not UKgamer. It is EUROgamer. I can bet that there are places in Europe where that phrase has a decidedly different meaning. I know for a fact that where I come from it definitely does not mean "you can keep it". Couple that with Harry Shaw's post history - I mean really what the hell does Putin's sexuality have to do with anything he has done? - and well I don't see you even entertaining the possibility of Harry's statements being taken the way I have interpreted them. Which was the whole point of my anecdote. The fact that you see it as a "get out of jail card" says a lot about you. It really does. Oh as an FYI, you lot should acquaint yourself with Poe's law. Would do you a bit of good I reckon.

    And lastly, I have yet to see any of you point out that Harry Shaw has a longstanding history of harassing CloudSkipa. For doing nothing more than voicing his opinion. In fact I still see you debating how horrible a person CloudSkipa is. Well need I remind you that he, to paraphrase Mr. Writer, is here to voice his opinion on the subject, which is in his full right to do. Like it or not you need, to quote shotbyascot, to "deal with it".

    I don't have an issue dealing with your amusing and oft hypocritical nonsense. Harry Shaw on the other hand....well we can see who threw a tantrum here. If you are going to fling shit and be offensive, then best be prepared to receive some back in turn. Alright now I am out. You can say whatever false bullshit you like. I have made my point and I am happy with it :).

    I am going to end my participation in this thread with this:

    As a person of colour I have experienced plenty of what you may call "incidental" racism. Stuff along the lines of "A person like you is so lucky to live here now", or off colour jokes involving "chinks, nips, gooks, curry-munchers, coolies" etc. Sure the people making these jokes may not have meant to be overtly racist. They also may have friends that are people of colour. It however, doesn't change the fact that the statements they made are inherently bigoted.

    I went through Harry Shaw's comments before making my original post yesterday. To me his posts show just that same sort of prejudice, directed at a different population, and I felt it deserved to be called out. Whether or not you agree, well that's up to you. Opinions are subjective after all. However, I am not going to apologize for the conclusions I have drawn based on his post history. If this gets me in trouble with the mods, so be it.

    @harryshaw And I can only hope the mods read your comments and "deal with you properly". If you think engaging in the kind of "humour" you have and bullying a member incessantly as you have Cloudskipa, is okay, well as I said it before; it just goes to show who YOU are. Reply -5

  • frazzl 23/08/2015

    @belziah That may be the case. I just wanted to point out that my original comment was not made "just for fun". There was a basis for it. Whether or not you agree with that basis; well opinions and all that. Reply -4
  • frazzl 23/08/2015

    @harryshaw So what if Putin is gay? His sexual preferences are irrelevant. To use them instead of his inhuman policies as a negative, which you did in that comment, says it all. If you don't see that, well I suggest that you are the one suffering from delusions. Reply -4
  • frazzl 23/08/2015

    @harryshaw Racist jokes are plenty popular as well. It doesn't make them right. It doesn't make them any less racist. So you can try and squirm your way out of things as best you can, but it doesn't change the fact about who you are. Reply -5

    @harryshaw It's "you're" little buddy. Your command of the English language is dreadful. Perhaps a little less time spent gaming, huh?

    So why is he always using the term "up the/your arse" as a negative? On more than one occasion. And look at his Putin comment. I mean the only reason a parent would want to protect their children from an autocratic megalomaniac is because he registers "highly" on their "gadar". Totally not homophobic. Sure ;)

    Or how about we look at how he uses feminine pejoratives to insult male Eurogamer members:

    @cloudskipa I saw your ico comments, and just like every driveclub article you come in here to give your paid for "reasons" for not liking the game, I fully understand @sonicuk frustration when its clear how bias you are, if anyones a whiny bitch its you-- every time digital foundry declares ps4 a winner, you are a pathetic paid for Microsoft stooge and everytime another user on here has a pop at you it brings a smile to my face!

    @cloudskipa you really are the most unpleasent, deluded sniffling little twat i have ever encountered on a gaming site, you clearly hate all things playstation, so rather that enjoying the comararderie on xbox articles you feel the need to belittle playstation games, why?? I am at a loss to understand, do you get some sort of sexual gratification from it? You really are that little pissant child in the playground no one ever talked to, to constantly justify your love for microsoft--even in ps articles borders on an aspergers level of communication, i would pity you--but bollocks--your horrid.
