  • Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy 13 is heading to PC next month

  • harryisme 20/11/2015

    Hopefully it's a better port than the previous two versions, I'm still baffled by the original FFXIII install size, it's not got the uncompressed video from the PS3 version, instead uses the 360's poorly compressed scenes, yet has a install size bigger than the PS3 version. Though probably not as baffling as the 29GB disk space requirement for Xiii-2 which was on one DVD and didn't have any cgi scenes. Reply +10
  • Need for Speed's first big update will fix one of players' biggest bugbears

  • harryisme 16/11/2015

    Sounds promising, rubber banding is a Racing game mechanic that needs to die. Nothing more annoying than losing a race due to one bad corner near the end and then winning the replay dispite having worst times just because you nailed the last corner. Reply +2
  • Sony responds to claim PS4 used for terrorist communications

  • harryisme 16/11/2015

    The events of this weekend is a tradgedy, and we should be uniting to show a united front against these cowards, instead oppurtunists Journalists use it as an excuse to throw dirt at the gaming industry.

    Someone tell me, how they could figure out PS4's were used when they also claim it's difficult to monitor messages sent via the PS4? Aren't they essentially saying they can't tell if they used PS4's so they must have used PS4's?

    Well if they didn't use consoles before, thanks to these articles, they will be now...they've just been told they are the most secure for of communication....bloody idiots.

  • Microsoft's cheeky video explains Xbox One backwards compatibility

    @Gamerz76 You make it sound like Sony never fucked up either, they've all done it, Sony told fans to get a second job to buy a PS3. We gotta look at how they go about regaining our trust, Sony managed it after the PS hack, and now MS are doing it with the new features etc. Reply +7

  • "The new Xbox One dashboard is the next step, not the final step"

  • harryisme 12/11/2015

    Really like the new dashboard, was a bit worried like when Microsoft moved from the blades to the NXE and then to the Metro there was a learning curve, but the new dashboard is so quick and intuitive.

    Look forward to seeing what games get added to the BC list over the coming months.

  • It looks like Minecraft is finally coming to Wii U

  • harryisme 12/11/2015

    So we've hard Rare make games for the Nintendo DS in the past and now Mojang making Minecraft for the Wii U. That's pretty cool.

    With the Tablet controller, Minecraft and the WiiU does seem to be a perfect fit.

  • So, how much do Steam Machines cost in the UK?

  • harryisme 11/11/2015

    I don't see a big price difference between a Steam machine and a Windows 10 Machine with the same specs.

    Problem with Steam Machines is, they were announced at a time when there was a need for such machines. as Windows 8 wasn't the most gamer friendly OS, specially with MS's implimentation of Games for Windows. However it's taken the Steam Machines so long to come to market, and we didn't have capable game streaming devices. The machines took so long to come to market that MS had plenty of time to improve the gaming experience on PC, and Nvidia and co (even valve themselves) had time to impliment their own much cheaper streaming devices.

    So the question now is, who is this device for? Games selection on Linux based systems is still not great so it won't stand on it's own as a gaming device, you'll still need a powerful windows gaming PC to steam your games, and if you are spending that much money anyway, why not just get a Windows based device in the first place?

    As for the controller it was touted as a replacement for a regular controller and the keyboard and mouse, but instead from all reviews and comments I've seen, it isn't as good as either solution and is a device to have on top of having a regular controller and keyboard and mouse, so instead of reducing clutter you have one more device to trip over.

  • Yuji Naka recommends playing Rodea the Sky Soldier's Wii version

  • harryisme 11/11/2015

    Definitely a Yuji Naka game, looking at the trailer give me a nostalgic feeling of playing Nights into Dreams on the Saturn and Sonic Adventure on the Dreamcast.

    I'm tempted to buy this dispite not owning a WiiU. Yuji Naka is a legend.

  • Itagaki's Valhalla Game Studios faces trademark dispute with Valhalla Motion Pictures

  • harryisme 10/11/2015

    The ships are different but with it being black and white and both being viking ships it's not surprising if the two companies could be mistaken as being related somehow. So unlike most cases I can see where the film studio is coming from.

    If I was Valhalla games I would have changed the logo, it's not really worth the hassle and legal fees. They are still a relatively new studio with one game under their belt...one game I am betting most gamers had forgotten already...If it wasn't for this article I wouldn't have known Devil's Third was even out.

    Looks like Friday the 13th is not going to be a lucky day for Itagaki...he's a Gaki for not just settling things out of court.

  • Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 tops UK chart, 91% of physical sales on PS4/Xbox One

  • harryisme 09/11/2015

    I'm not surprised how poorly the last gen versions did, All the news pretty much pointed as Acti telling the ones on old gen, not to bother with Blops3 on the 360 or PS3, and just to stick with Advanced Warfare, or upgrade their hardware.

    I'm actually surprised how close the PS4 and XBO sales are, not sure if Sony will be happy with that considering they are likely paying Activision allot of money to get the one months early map access. You have to wonder if Sony are benifiting at all with the deal considering there are more than twice as many PS4's sold than XBO's so you'd expect the PS4 version to be in the lead anyway.

  • PlayStation indie champion Shahid Ahmad leaving Sony

  • Watch: When should publishers stop supporting last-gen?

  • harryisme 08/11/2015

    Let's be honest here, the reason Blops3 Last gen version looks so poor and lacks a single player campaign is because Activision didn't think it was profitable enough to spend a budget big enough to get these features in the game. Technical Limitation wouf have meant some sacrifices would have to be made, but I dont think they were enough that the single player campaign was not possible. PS2 to PS3 jump I could beleive, but not the PS3 to PS4 not as much.

    As for when the past gen should be dropped, well it's already happenning. I expect by this time next year the majoritiy of games will drop the last gen platforms, with the exception of Fifa and the odd JRPG. So really is a mute point, by the time Destiny 2, Battlefield 5, etc are ready for release the 360 and PS3 version will have been dropped.

  • Assassin's Creed Syndicate steampunk outfits weigh in at 3.1GB on PS4

  • harryisme 05/11/2015

    So we've come to a point where a couple of costumes need the same amount of HDD space than AAA titles from the last gen?

    Something smells fishy here, for one thing loading up a 2GB file into RAM would likely cause performance issues on a system that has 5-6GB of RAM available to games.

    @spindle9988 If you'd been following the game you'd know that Capcom promised no on disk DLC, and that it is possible to unlock all future charactors using ingame earned currency.

    Though we'll have to wait to see how generous the ingame currency system is.

  • Watch: No Man's Sky - managing the hype

  • harryisme 03/11/2015

    I've seen very polarizing views about this game, on one end fans are really hyped and thinking they are going to be millions of things to do, and on the other end I've seen fans interested but still unsure what the game offers beyond exploration.

    I'm still weary of what the game will actually offer, I'm keeping my expectations grounded and will wait until more information becomes available closer to launch. It certainly warrants being on your radar.

  • Konami sorry about incomplete PES 2016 transfer update

  • harryisme 03/11/2015

    Seems like an odd thing to do, specially as the last few days seem to see allot of business so the patch could be missing half of the transfers that took place.

    Also it taking weeks is also strange, why would it take so long to add in the last fews days worth of transfers in? Surely they would have designed the game to easily patch in player transfers easily.

  • UK tabloids point the finger at Call of Duty, GTA in coverage of 15-year-old TalkTalk hacker

  • harryisme 28/10/2015

    So I take it Talktalks security system required you pressing A for a couple of seconds to hack?

    From all the 'Video games to blame' articles this seems to be the most ridiculous, this is the first I've heard violence in video games aspires you hack a multi million pound company.

    Maybe i'm of the wrong mind set but if I read that I'd be forcing my kids to play even more games, who knows it might aspire them to become a doctor after using one too many health packs.

  • Escape From New York IP-holder wanted to sue Metal Gear Solid

  • harryisme 28/10/2015

    @Ginryu Bad example mate, HxH and Bleach are both published in Shounen Weekly Jump, the same Magazine Dragonball was published in. So if they sued they'd essentially be suing themselves.

    But I know what you meant, but laws in different countries vary, what you can get away in one country you might not be able to get away with in another. So depending on which court the lawsuit was filed they could have been successful or failed.

  • Don Bluth launches Dragon's Lair movie Kickstarter

  • harryisme 27/10/2015

    So this is a fundraiser? You don't even get access to the 10 Minute pitch video they plan to make from the money they raise unless you donate $75.

    I'm not sure the game has such a strong following that they will pay to make a promo clip that will maybe get them a meeting with a movie studio who may or may not be impressed enough to fund the actual project.

    This would be similar to a game developer asking for money to make a demo of a game that they will show a Publisher in hopes of them funding the full game...Oh and contributing won't get you a copy of the full game if it does get published.

    Well good luck to them, I personally think it will struggle to meet it's target but never know...though I do think they should atleast give everyone who contributes $15 access to the finished 10 clip their money will pay for.

  • GAME manager accidentally orders company's entire stock of gift cards

  • harryisme 24/10/2015

    Wait so the manager accidently ordered then entire stock and head office where they took the order just went, 'Looks Legit, yeah, let's send our entire stock of cards to this one store'?

    It didn't raise any alarm bells at any stage of the stock requests? That surprises me more than the manager accidently ordering the entire stock, as errors like that happen all the time, but you'd think someone between taking the order to shipping would notice the discrepency.

    Edit: Now i'm wondering if the Amiibo's that got stolen on route to Game really got stolen or if a manager at a store in Leeds didn't just accidently order the whole batch, and they were just too embarresed to admit to it...lol

    This makes me sad, I remember Codemasters from my childhood, I used to love the Dizzy games and Micromachines with the cartidges with built in multitap, and even their Game Genie cheat cartidges.

    Now it just feels like they either release racing games that don't quite match the levels of their earlier race games or poorly reviewed games when they try a different genre.

  • Pillars of Eternity sells 500k copies

    @perydwyn Hardly a success? The games sells for £35 on Steam, if they managed to make the game within the $4.5m budget they raised, even after you take Steams cut in consideration, they've still made three times more than what it cost them to make the game.

    Most triple A titles would kill for that kind of return on investment.

  • Last-gen Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 delayed

  • harryisme 22/10/2015

    Well if they couldn't make the current gen version look like a early past generation game, I'm guessing the last gen versions looked like early PS2 games.

    Though ofcourse the question is, if the contract really does run out with Tony Hawk end of this year, will they be able to still sell the game using Tony Hawks name whenever the game is fit for release? (and considering how poor the current gen version was, the last gen version might need another six months of actual development.)

  • Hideo Kojima left Konami earlier this month - report

  • harryisme 20/10/2015

    I thought Kojima technically left months ago? Wasn't his role changed to consultant or something? I'm sure reports from a few months back said he'd been fired as a director and was a consultant contract until MGSV:PT was complete. If that was the case wouldn't he technically not be a Konami employee?

    Well whatever the case, Kojima will land on his feet, he will have publishers knocking down his door to work for the, and he's done enough that he could afford an extended holiday and spend time with his family.

  • Remaining Batman Arkham Knight Season Pass content revealed

  • harryisme 17/10/2015

    The contents of Batman Season pass it a good reason why we should not go out and buy season passes when announced, the more and more I see the content the worst the content seems to get.

    Considering these passes usually cost 80% of the price of a full game and the majority of assets are already there, you would think you'd get content similar content as the actual game, instead it's small 1 hour missions and skin packs.

    You do worry about the state of the game industry if DLC and season passes is the only way these games can make a profit. (or atleast it is if publishers are to be believed.)

  • You can skip straight to the end of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3's campaign

  • harryisme 12/10/2015

    If you can skip to the end what's the point of playing the game? I understand unlocking the game after you've completed it, even just having a cinematics only where you can watch the cutscenes and not play the game, but come on atleast make them play the full game to appreciate it more.

    I understand their reasoning but don't agree with it, playing a Game to get to the end is the whole point of it, just fast forwarding to the end makes no sense to me...defeats the purpose of playing said game.

  • Seagate 2TB Game Drive for Xbox review

  • harryisme 11/10/2015

    You'd think if they were going to rip the consumer off, they would have at the very least looked at the Xbox One and 360, and noticed what colour the bloody consoles were before slapping a Xbox Logo on it and selling it for a premium. It's like they looked at the logo, noticed it was green and decided that's the way to go.

    This is just as useless as the Xbox USB pen drives Sandisk were selling all those years ago, only worst as it's a bright green box that will stand out like a sore thumb on nearly everyones entertainment unit.

    I'm surprised the minimum CPU's are from the latest line-up from Intel, would have thought they would go with minimum 4000 or even earlier series CPU.

    This might cause confusion for the none tech savvy PC gamer. I have a i5 4690, which looking at spec sheet wouldn't meet minimum requirements as it's an older gen architecture. Ofcourse I know that's not the case but those who don't know much about the CPU's might think otherwise.

    Well this is going to be a piss take, no doubt us Brits will be getting screwed over again with the pricing. This is one of the reasons why I prefered MS's point system over actual cash value credit. You knew if something cost 800 points in the US it would be 800 points in the UK, No excuse for accidental conversion issues. Greedy SOB's like Activision would not be able to screw us over like they have with Destiny....I'm still waiting to see when this pricing policy bleeds over to their other games. On the bright side we'll now know who has more money than sense when we see their guardians strutting their stuff.

    I'm still waiting for Eurogamer to report on Destinys pricing discrepency, you'd think we'd have seen one article by now.

It builds friendships, allows them to swap pokemon, share their love for the franchise, and continue to support the game, heck it might even drag in someone who isn't too big on the game and earn more money for Nintendo.

    Nintendo should be looking at these event, and telling them, knock the unofficial off that, we'll sponser this event, you guys are awesome, thank you for your hard work.

  • Tony Hawks Pro Skater 5 review

    So Tony Hawks agreement runs out this year, so most likely Activision rushed out a game to squeeze the last penny out of the franchise before they put it to rest.

    Considering how Activision took Deadpool game off the marketplace less than a year after release as the licence ran out I wonder if they'll stop selling this game as soon as the agreement expires...which makes you question how likely they are on fullfilling their promise of fixing the buggy mess the game is?

    Hate to say it, as I love Rare Games of the old, but this game would not have succeeded at the time of it's likely launch, which would have been late Xbox and early 360 days. multiplayer only games were just not doing well on consoles then, even now where multiplayer is massive MP only games still struggle.

    For it to succeed it would have needed a single player campaign, though looking at the setup that could have been really fun.

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

  • harryisme 29/09/2015

    Looking at this, who in their right mind would pay $59.99, when they can get the full day one experience for £34.99 and if that experience is enjoyable they can buy the rest for $29.99? It doesn't make sense to pay the full amount for a mere $4.99 saving.

    Better still wait till end of June, and buy the game cheaper when on offer and get to experience the full experience in one go.

    What I want to know is how the retail copy will be packaged will having a physical copy get you access to the full experience as it is released, of will the phyical disk only unlock day one content and you will get a code for the rest.

    Edit: This game is going to be a nightmare to reivew I imagine....Can you review half a game? or wait four months to review the full experience?
