  • "We have to do better when we launch NX"

    Wii U arrived and its core concept was tablet gaming. Except people already had tablets to play games on, and software which utilised the dual-screen concept was thin on the ground.

    Sure, there were Nintendo-made experiences at launch such as Nintendo Land or New Super Mario Bros., but these were thin on the ground, and did not explain the Wii U's core concept as the instantly understandable Wii Sports did so well for Wii.
    You know what else is "thin on the ground"? Some variety in your phraseology :lol:

    I never understood the love this game received. I hated it when it was released and looking at that video, am glad it wasn't re-released. Games like Doom 1 and 2, Duke Nukem 3D and Quake 1 and 2 were leagues better. Reply -25

  • Dead Rising 4 is a good zombie game, but maybe not a good Dead Rising

    @obidanshinobi
    If only PS4 console exclusives were held up to this kind of scrutiny on EG and the games media in general then maybe we wouldn't of had such a big upset with No Man's Sky.
    Tom, Oli, or Martin do that?! Heaven forbid!!

  • Deus Ex: Mankind Divided's annoying microtransactions in the spotlight

  • frazzl 24/08/2016

    Poticha said consumables work the way they do "due to first-party constraints", which points the finger at Microsoft and Sony, although it's such a vague statement that it's hard to work out what it means.
    I call bullshit on this!

  • Disgruntled No Man's Sky players thrust Sony's PS4 refund policy back into the spotlight

  • frazzl 23/08/2016

    @chadpattan Aren't the people complaining based in Europe? Blastiel who posts here is from Manchester.

    Sure Steam didn't initially offer refunds but public backlash forced them to. The same thing should happen here - SCEE should be made to provide better customer service. Digital distribution is great when done right.

    @chadpattan What are you on about? Every (brick and mortar) retailer in NZ that sales console games also sells PC titles too.

    Sony has no such obligation because nothing's stopping you from just getting the physical copy and going that route. If you do that it's up to the game seller to refund you, not Sony.
    So it is fair for Sony to treat its customers like shit because they have the option of buying the games at retail? Really? Seriously mate, I hope you don't work in customer service.

  • Konami tries to explain Metal Gear Survive's ridiculous story

    @sbkw1983 Different strokes for different folks. If you like the game, all the more power for you.

    I own MGSIV. Played it. Couldn't take the overly long, poorly directed cutscenes and their wretched dialogue. That's just my experience. I am not trying to generalize it in any way.

    Kind of like how you think your opinion means something.
    Ditto my little ignorant buddy.

    The man is probably leagues better than you and your know it all attitude professes you are.
    Better than me at what exactly? Game design? Definitely. That's not my job after all. But there are plenty of better game designers out there.

    Mouthy gamers who "think" they know, one not so good game out of all the good one's he's created and you go off spouting nonsense. Got to love the pretentious crap that some of you seem to spew with reckless abandon. Internet, never ending source of people who think they have the right to judge someone else. I need a snickers.
    So. Much. Irony. :lol:

    Kojima is the most overrated developer out there. And while Metal Gear Survival looks far from stellar, surely it can't be as bad as that rancid piece of shit that was MGSIV! Reply 0

  • Yes, there will be Project Scorpio VR-exclusives

  • frazzl 22/08/2016

    @I_Am_CatButler
    You will likely be able to buy many of the same third party titles on PSVR and Steam too but they're clearly not the same platform.
    Except that the PSVR is Playstation only. That is not true of the OR.

    The Scorpio was described as having "no exclusives" so that no one (including original XBone users) wouldn't be left behind. It was a simple marketing message that glossed over things like VR.
    Maybe they weren't anticipating providing VR support when that message was given. We still don't know exactly what sort of VR support we're going to see with the Scorpio. People have made a mountain out of a molehill.

    I'm not complaining about this, just pointing out that it is contrary to what you are claiming.
    And I am pointing out that it is quite reasonable for people not to feel left out by not being able to play games designed with a third party peripheral in mind.

    BTW I am not the one negging you in case you think we're having anything other than a civil discussion.

    @I_Am_CatButler
    Wouldn't XBone users be doubly disadvantaged by that logic? Having to purchase both a VR headset and a new console to use it.
    Not if they already have an Oculus Rift for their gaming PC right? And even if an X1 user had to buy an Oculus Rift, they could use it with their PC. It is not tied down to Xbox hardware like the PSVR is.

  • frazzl 21/08/2016

    @I_Am_CatButler MS seem to be releasing games on both the PC and Xbox platform. So having a MS VR title would likely entail both a PC and Scorpio release using the Oculus VR. Much like any third party Oculus VR title. Again I don't see that as leaving behind X1 owners. This is not a feature the X1 was ever advertised for.

    Here's betting the people bitching in this thread here didn't complain when features that were actually advertised as being part of the PS3 feature set were removed like hardware backwards compatibility, various memory card readers, and Linux support. Surely in comparison this is a total non-event is it not?

    @I_Am_CatButler But it is true isn't it? Oculus Rift is not a MS platform is it? Reply 0
  • frazzl 20/08/2016

    @I_Am_CatButler The thing is MS never marketed the X1 as a VR machine. Ever. So X1 owners are not being left behind. They have a machine that delivers exactly what they were told it would deliver. That's my point and it's one a lot of known PS fanboys like Goochie seem to have missed. Reply 0
  • frazzl 19/08/2016

    @BlackFlower PS4 and X1 gamers not willing to pay a significant amount of money for a hardware upgrade are left behind. We also don't know just how much of a difference the Neo will bring to the table in terms of VR performance either. It's no coincidence that the Neo is set to release soon after the PSVR. Reply 0
  • frazzl 18/08/2016

    @BlackFlower The PS4 alone can't play VR games. The X1 alone can't play VR games. Both Sony and MS have never claimed that their respective machines would be VR capable out of the box.

    In terms of VR Sony and MS have gone down different routes. With Sony you have to buy a separate VR kit which nearly costs as much as the PS4 alone. To play VR on an Xbox you will need to get the Scorpio. In both cases owners of just the current consoles will not be able to play any VR games without investing a fair bit of cash on an upgrade of some sort.

    @number1024 Sure a 3D Prime like adventure would be a better fit for the NX. You could still have a classic 2D Metroid adventure on the 3DS though. Much like they did on the GBA. Those titles were both, critically and commercially successful. Reply 0

  • frazzl 19/08/2016

    @Morthill I have to disagree. It's not the scoreline that determines fun - you can have a tough and exciting 0-0 match. It's how the match is played. FIFA isn't authentic or exciting in my opinion. In fact EA have gone out of their way to make their own gameplay stats not work the way they should to stifle gameplay - just look at the complaints leveled against running speed, headers, and most recently, team chemistry. Reply 0
  • frazzl 19/08/2016

    @neems Sure, that is a possibility. In my opinion though, gameplay is paramount. All the licensing in the world means nothing if the underlying game is a piss poor representation of the sport it is supposed to simulate - which is exactly the case with FIFA. Reply 0

    Codemasters might not have the budget of EA Sports, but over time it's managed to create an F1 game that's as authentic to its sport as FIFA is to its own.
    Really? FIFA authentic? Have you watched an actual football match? Compared it to what you see in FIFA, even when watching professional gamers play it? If this F1 title is as authentic as FIFA, it's going to be a pretty shitty simulator of the sport.

    To be honest I think the PS4/Neo, X1S/Scorpio will all be competing in the same market. Sure there are power differences, but we are looking at virtually the same library of games. I will be getting them all, as I normally do, but I am looking forward to the Scorpio far more than I am the Neo. Reply +2
