    @IronSoldier Hehehe. I like Nintendo games. A lot. Ditto for Sony and MS ones. That doesn't make me think, for a minute, that Sony, Nintendo and MS are in it for anything but our money. It's ridiculous to try and represent these companies as entities suffering for their art. Oh well there are some crazy people around.... Reply +1

    @7M7
    These articles, which have cropped up ever since Xbox One and PS4 were officially revealed, are like a a deflection from the fact that the PS4 has such a consistent lead (even if it's a small one) over Xbox One that it risks rendering DF articles completely useless.
    You could say the exact same thing about last gen. Just have a look at the multi-platform titles released on the PS3 during its first year out ;)

    @Nikanoru
    LMAO oh wow, I don't even know where to begin. First of all, your Zelda thing? That's something only people who don't really play Zelda say, or people who play it just to be able to say they did (likely you). Don't give me that "milking" bullshit when every entry in that series has such love and care put into it and every new game more unique character than any two entirely unrelated shooters elsewhere.
    Sorry to disappoint you but I have played several Zelda games. And yes they do follow the same formula. And I am not the first person to have said this. I think you'll find "professional" game reviewers who have espoused the same view.

    Second, what the hell does GG have to do with anything? Just the fact that you bring that shit up speaks volumes about your lack of argument. Again, Nintendo's conduct and product is out there for everyone to see, you just choose to deny what's right in front of you, for some weird reason.
    It goes to show the kind of person you are. Your whole, "let's ignore facts and opinions that differ from mine because fuck it I know I am right" spiel. So yes it is relevant given the context of our discussion.

    (Oh god you're spreading your troll crap all over this thread I just noticed, if I'd seen this sooner I wouldn't have bothered with you in the first place. Good to see the downvotes seem to be taking care of your posts so far though. I'm out, the last word is yours! I know you're just gagging for it lol.)
    Ah yes, misusing the word troll and throwing some homophobia in your reply. Did I mention how typical this was of the GG crowd? :cool:

    @Nikanoru How about the Zelda games? Are you telling me they don't religiously stick to a formula? A formula that has remained the same for decades?

    As for being a hater, well sorry little buddy but I own a Wii U. And a Wii. And a GC. And an N64. In fact my first console (that I owned not played) was a NES. That still doesn't change the fact that Nintendo are just as in it for the money as the other two. So if anyone is being willfully blind it's you. Not that this is unexpected coming from a virulent pro-GG person like yourself.

    @Joel-crazy I think you'll find that the PS4 version has performance issues as well. Sure it has a better frame-rate than the X1 version but it is far from perfect. Reply -13

    @Nikanoru You're kidding right? Nintendo are just as guilty of milking their franchises and recycling gameplay as the other two. So yes when it comes to shitty business decisions they're incompetent. Something both Sony and MS are guilty of too. Reply -5

    @ghostgate2001 Looks like an interesting doco to watch.

    My point was that MS, Sony, and Nintendo have the same ultimate goal. To get a gamers money. Wasting time on forums arguing which multi-national corporation is less or more evil than the other is a complete waste of time.

    @blerk2000 You are the one missing the point (and cherry picking for that matter). I don't like Sony, MS or Nintendo. I like certain products of theirs only. That's the difference between a gamer like myself and a fanboy like yourself. And, as I said before, if being a fanboy is how you want to operate, that's fine with me. Good luck ;). Reply -11
  • frazzl 21/12/2014

    @Playstationman That's not what NXGamer says in his video. He says the performance is identical after patch 4. As for pre-patch, the only difference was that the PS4 version ran without a cap and the X1 version was capped at 30. Now both versions run at a capped 30 fps. No anti-Sony conspiracy here. Reply -6

    @blerk2000

    Sony have a proven track record in the following areas:
    Consumer electronics
    The music business & concerts
    The movie business & home entertainment
    Videogames since the early nineties
    Their track record is pretty damn shaky when it comes to consumer electronics now. Their Walkman brand is in tatters thanks to Apple. Ditto with their cellphones. They've given up on their Vaio PCs. Samsung and LG have effectively pushed them out of the TV business.

    The music industry is suffering all round. Sony Music is doing no better than the other record companies.

    In terms of Sony movies, I suggest you read up on the current hacking stuff going on and how they've backed down on "The Interview".

    Which leaves us with videogames. I suggest you read up on exactly how Sony outmuscled Sega and Nintendo with the PS1 in the mid to late 90's. I think you'll find that "entered the gaming space with the same intent and only succeeded by throwing vast sums of money "

    Which again begs the question, if you're okay with Sony doing it why not MS? Or any other company?

    Others may like Microsoft, but they are deluded.
    The only deluded people are those who personify multi-national corporations and give them qualities like "evil". Sony, MS and Nintendo are not in it for the gamers. They're in it for your money. If being blinkered to that works for you, well what can I say? Best of luck ;)

    @cloudskipa Give The Crew a go. It's not particularly polished but the game's scope is spectacular. Driving from city to city really is a "next-gen" experience gaming wise even if the graphics are a bit rough. Reply +1

    @Yautja_Warrior
    Same can be said about DriveClub, and even though it's been updated and fixed, still gets a lot of unfair negativity, as people can't get past the problems it had at launch, shame because it's a solid racer now.
    Sure. It's just that this is a FH2 article and we see so many people still bitching about the Drive Club review (which if I recall right was not done by Martin Robinson).

    I don't get why people need to compare the two anyway, apart from driving cars, they are totally different experiences.
    This is a tricky one. They're both arcade racers but yes, their focus is very different. I guess it's the fact that they fall in the same genre, their release dates were relatively close together and they're exclusives for their respective brands. TL;DR some sort of comparison is inevitable.

    I have a PS4 and don't own an Xbox One at the moment, but I know FH2 is a great game (I have played it) It's a shame the gaming community on the internet has so much hate for such trivial things these days.
    I agree. I have both an X1 and a PS4 (and a Wii U) and don't see why people can't enjoy gaming on multiple platforms. For that matter I don't see why people can't give credit where credit is due for games on platforms they don't own. I am not a PC gamer but the latest Divinity game looks brilliant. I would have to be insane or very stupid to slag it off simply because I can't play it! Sadly this is not a view shared my many posting here :(

  • frazzl 19/12/2014

    @cloudskipa I bet most of the people criticizing FH2 don't own it or have played it much. The driving model is about as nuanced as you can get in an arcade racer with the level of customization that you have with difficulty is amazing. You can tailor your race experience regardless of skill level or preference.

    Drive Club is a decent game. I picked it up for cheap (over 50% discount here in NZ) and it looks great and it handles decently. It handles similarly to a NFS title, albeit a tad tighter (which is good) and the sense of speed you get when driving is solid. It's a decent game. 7/10. But FH2 is awesome. In my opinion of course.

    @shotbyascot I own them both and that's utter bullshit. Unless you're playing Horizon 2 on the easiest setting with full assists it is easily the less forgiving and more involved racing game. It's Drive Club that's straight forward. Not that there is anything wrong with that. Reply +9

  • Video: Why you might not want to pre-order The Order

    @davidclatney I only use reviews to get information on any technical issues. Which is why Bramwell's AC Unity review was so disappointing (it hardly mentioned the numerous objective issues the game has). If there are no tech issues I'll get a game regardless of what reviewers think of it. Reply +1

  • frazzl 13/12/2014

    @man.the.king I think they will be. After all for all the complaints we're seeing here leveled at EG being negative about The Order, no one seems to remember how strongly positive EG's press has been on Bloodborne. I don't see a Sony conspiracy here. Reply -1
  • frazzl 12/12/2014

    @man.the.king I think you're under-estimating Sony. And they wouldn't need financial clout. They could simply stop providing Eurogamer preview copies of Sony published titles, stop inviting their journalists to cover Sony events, pull Sony related advertising etc. And lets face it, Sony sure as hell have a lot more financial clout than EG ;)

    I think, after all the complaints people have leveled at EG about Drive Club, AC Unity, Halo MCC etc., that this is a start of a new thing. Pro-active previews that get around the whole embargo business. And I am all for it.

    @bladdard The Telltale titles are built around narrative and player choice with some QTE gameplay thrown in on occasion. In an action game however, some people feel it takes away from player agency. Don't have a problem with QTEs myself but some people do. Reply +1
  • frazzl 12/12/2014

    @Malek86 Fair enough. I personally enjoyed the combat. Delsin is a lot more mobile than Cole so I felt that SS provided more variety in terms of how you could approach combat. The game world was definitely a lot smaller than Infamous 2 though. Reply +7

  • frazzl 19/12/2014

    Well I hope that other developers/publishers take heed. Videogame bullshots that are not representative of the final product as well as false advertising need to stop. Sony is not the only company responsible for doing this, just take a look at Ubisoft for example. Maybe if a few companies lose money over their lying they'll finally get the message and stop the practice. Reply 0
  • Last-gen revisited: Far Cry 4

  • frazzl 19/12/2014

    I think it really depends on how you play the game. I played Far Cry 3 on the 360 stealthily avoiding major confrontations as much as possible and didn't have a big issue with performance. I am guessing the same will hold true here with Far Cry 4. Go in guns blazing though and I guess it is a different story. Reply 0

    Details are scarce, but Siliconera described it as "an action game with tag battles and 3D stages, where characters will fight in big brawls."

    @Dajji77 Where have I changed my tune? I said I did not support Target's and Kmart's decision not to stock GTAV. I did however say both retailers were entitled not to stock the game. The same applies here. I don't support Valve's decision, but it is their right not to stock the game.

    There is absolutely no censorship going on. Not stocking a product is not censorship. It is not the same as slandering a writer and hoping they lose their job simply because their published opinion differs from yours. There are no parallels here buddy.

    Edit: If Valve demand the devs alter their title or go on a public rampage hoping that the game fails or the devs go bust, then we'll have a similar situation.

  • frazzl 16/12/2014

    I don't agree with Valve's move, just like I didn't agree with Kmart and Target not stocking GTAV, but this is not censorship. The devs are still able to release their game elsewhere. And Valve has a right to not publish whatever games they want, no matter how hypocritical the decision may seem.

    Edit: I am not sure where people are getting this "neo-Nazi" vibe from the developers. This is their official website. Pretty standard stuff imo. Same with their FB page which I can't seem to link to here.

    I bought The Crew today as it was on sale from $109 to $88. When I was getting it, I noticed that my game retailer had Drive Club on sale for $49! At more than 50% off I picked that up too. So that's it for games for me this year. And no more racing games for ages as I still have a lot of Forza 5 and FH2 left to play. Reply 0
