  • Today, Bungie will make Destiny 2's brilliantly overpowered Prometheus Lens "way too weak" instead

  • harryisme 12/12/2017

    In January, this new Exotic will receive a proper, play-tested design pass.

    Do they mean like how the the Vex Mythoclast eventually got a proper patch after they nerfed it to hell? Oh wait...that never happened.

    How did Bungie not realise this gun was OP as hell? Do they not test these guns to see how they perform in the Crucible, before they release it in the wild? It's not like it was difficult to spot, I'd expect a couple minutes would have been enough to figure out how OP the gun was.

  • Bungie admits it made "mistakes" locking off bits of Destiny 2 behind DLC

  • harryisme 12/12/2017

    What was more shocking for me was that you could buy the Osiris exclusive loot from Xur. That's been locked out since the first DLC as well. I fully expected this to be behind their DLC paywall as well. I only logged in this weekend because my nephew told me I could buy the Ray gun. So if this is the case from now on, and not a oversight from Bungie I have no reason to buy the DLC, in it's current state. Reply 0

  • Pokémon Go event to unlock Farfetch'd

  • harryisme 20/11/2017

    A couple of months ago I would think 3 Billion would not be that difficult, but I'm not sure if there are enough people who still play and dedicate more than a few minutes beyond catching a pokemon and spinning a pokestop daily to reach that target. (That's been pretty much my daily routine.)

    I hope they have enough data to know this is possible, but these are the same guys that vastly underestimated the data requirements, and server load for their first event, and let's not forget the Pokemon Company, who had similar unreachable goals in Pokemon Sun and Moon, that didn't even come close to being reached.

    I expect with the launch of Sun and Moon Ultra, the player base may even be lower as many will be playing the main game.

  • harryisme 13/11/2017

    Come on man everyone knows, you don't bring a sword to a fist fight...it's just not cricket.

    That said certainly looks like a interesting character, though personally I would have liked to see him in a Soul Caliber game, However after the last game I doubt we'll be seeing a sequel anytime soon.

  • FIFA 18 fans are using terrible players to "exploit" the AI

  • harryisme 10/11/2017

    A new FIFA Ultimate Team "exploit" has emerged that some players reckon can't be fixed.

    Whenever I read comments like that, I always imagine the Dev whipping off their glasses, then looking at the screen with a raised eyebrow and saying 'Challenge Accepted'.

  • Destiny 2 PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X enhancements coming next month

  • harryisme 10/11/2017

    Adaptive 4K? Is that a different word for Dynamic scaling? If that is the case I wonder why they did it, the game already uses Checkerboard rendering, so moving to dynamic scaling seems like a odd move to me.

    Dec 5th, I think i'll wait and see, the current state of the game has me questioning whether I should purchase the DLC packs or not.

  • Assassin's Creed Origins patch adds even more photo mode effects

  • harryisme 02/11/2017

    @CrashOkami I can't blame you for the confusion, Ubisoft didn't make it clear if the One X was getting a High Res pack or now, many sites were even running with that misinformation.

    The NDA lifts on the 3rd, so we should be seeing content start to spill through then.

  • What does the Metal Gear Solid 5 PS4 Pro patch actually do?

  • harryisme 01/11/2017

    Yeah I'm thinking if they add 1440p support, and if they can add Freesync 2.0 support as well, I'd consider getting a 1440p monitor over a 4K TV or monitor, specially as I can pick up a higher refresh rate monitor, for PC gaming.

    Have they announced a One X patch yet?

  • Digital Foundry unboxes the final retail Xbox One X

  • harryisme 26/10/2017

    Good thing the One S cables are all interchangeable right? I have no idea how DF would have found a figure of 8 power cable otherwise...lol

    Getting the console early is going does offer them a interesting opportunity where they can test the performance of games like Halo 5 that use dynamic scaling before the patch drops to see if they runs at 1080p without the resolution dropping.

    Ofcourse now the question is if DF are under NDA or will we be seeing analysis videos before the launch of the console?

  • Argos says it'll deliver Xbox One X at one minute past midnight in London

    So lets say a thousand people order it using the trial service, is Argos going to hire a thousand delivery drivers to make all deliveries on time?

    I expect this is just a marketing gimmick, to get some headlines.

  • harryisme 23/10/2017

    I'm hoping for some SEGA games support, I remember seeing Outrun on Xbox, as well as Shen Mue II and Panzar Dragoon and really was tempted to buy the console just for the Sega games, would be really great if these games were added to the library.

    Also great to see Ninja Gaiden Black added, though would like to see Dead or Alive games added as well.

    Looked at the IGN comparisons, they've done a good job, I wonder how they'll scale to the One X.

  • When it comes to FIFA 18, you can most definitely cash out

  • harryisme 23/10/2017

    I don't play Fifa, (as I suck.) but I do enjoy watching youtube videos of pack openings, however I never really understood the amount of money these youtubers were spending until I decided to check how much these 12,000 points packs cost, and was shocked to see these cost £79.99.

    These Youtubers were spending that much daily on packs, sometimes even more than that when the game is new or when player of the year cards etc come out. So they are spending £20K plus on just cards, and many of them will say something like 'I'm going to open some packs to make some money to buy .....' as if those points are free.

    If you put a monitory value on some of these players that go upwards of 2 Million coins, you have to spend hundreds to get enough coins to buy a player like that in the game...it's no surprise there is a black market for coins when stuff like that happens.

  • Destiny 2's Iron Banner reward system will be reworked

  • harryisme 23/10/2017

    @jabberwocky Yup, I don't understand why ship are not used for your Vault space as well.

    No that's a lie, I know exactly why, it's so they can do a hard reset on your gear when the sequel drops, like they did with D2.
    Reply +4
  • harryisme 23/10/2017

    Let's hope the changes are enough, the last Iron banner had a really negative impact to the PvP side. That event lost a million daily users after it ended, the games been out one months and the PvP is down from over 3.5 Million daily users to around 1 million, and I wouldn't even be surprised if many of those users only play to complete their Call to Arms bounty.

    I always thought there were more PvP players than PvE as Bungie made allot of changes to the system to suit PvP more, but it's was pretty even, until the Iron Banner event and the PvP side lost almost half it's player base.

    With Call of Duty and Battlefront 2 out soon, if Bungie don't get the players interested they could find that userbase moving to one of the other games.

    Don't think this event is going to entice more players in, or atleast not for too long, I played the game for less than an hour yesterday and in that time I managed to catch two pikachu's with hats, and the new pokemon, with enough candy to evolve Shuppet and Duskull...and I live in a relatively small town.

I've multiple issues of being randomly disconnected, or having to reset the game to join a fireteam, or being told 'contacting Destiny Servers' every few minutes, oh and being kicked out to space for no apparent reason. In typical Bungie fashion while fixing one issue they managed to break something else. Reply +9
  • Activision patents matchmaking system designed to encourage microtransactions

  • harryisme 18/10/2017

    Well that's...um...err...sadly not at all surprising coming from Activision, it's how they pushed DLC packs forward afterall, peer pressure, If you wanted to continue to play online with your friends, you had to pay for the inflated DLC packs, or you'd be forced to sit the game out.

    So now that Peer Pressure has been so successful for them it's not at all surprising they looking into shaming you into making micro-transactions. (Could you class this as a form of bullying?)

    The big-box edition features, as you may expect, a copy of the game itself,

    Ironically the big box release of The prequel actually did not include a copy of the game. it was just the extra's but you had to buy the game separately.So it's not a given from their past record, We've also seen games like Battlefield 1 release the collectors editions without a game for your collection.

  • Government response to loot box concern is predictably non-committal

  • harryisme 17/10/2017

    I think the angle they went with this is the issue, we can all admit there is a serious problem when it comes to loot boxes and their addictive nature. However technically it's not gambling, as there is no monetary gains that can be made from buying these boxes, I remember EA made changes to Fifa, as it was threading close to what could be described as legal gambling.

    Maybe they should have gone at it with the anti-competitive practices of the games companies when using these loot boxes, restricting access to content behind paywalls, to force you into making Micro transactions. Like say for example if your Broadband provider throttled your internet speeds to try and get you to upgrage to a faster speed.

    Loot Boxes drive your desire to collect and complete collections, in many cases it isn't about making monetary gains, it's about fulfilling the desire to obtain something that for some reason you fell you need. This is the addiction that Loot boxes are encouraging, so maybe it should be looked at from a mental health issue, I don't know.

    While I did sign the petition because I do think something needs to be done, I'm not surprised at the outcome, as there is no possible monitory gain to be made from obtaining any items, (well I'm sure there is some ways people have found.) And asking this to be included in the definition of what is considered gambling could open up a whole another can of worms, Match Attax would come under scrutiny, Yu-Gi-Oh, Pokemon CG, and Heartstone etc could all fall under the umbrella and be considered gambling, as they are blind bags that are purchased, in the bid to gain specific items. (And for these it is possible to profit off them.)

  • harryisme 16/10/2017

    Will be happy to see if this is enough to get me playing as often as I used to, the Raid system pretty much killed the game for me, I've caught all the Gen 1 and Gen 2 Pokemon for (that are not region exclusives) except the legendary Pokemon for months now. However I live in a small town and no one is around to do raids, and I'm not going into Leeds every time a new Legendary is released.

    We'll see, Gen 3 has some of my favourite pokemon to date in them so maybe i'll get sucked in again...or maybe now, atleast if they add gen 3 starters in the Raid mix, i'll have reasons to do those lower level Raids Solo, (because I'm not going to do them for the revives and potions that's for sure.)

  • Oculus is launching a low-cost, all-in-one VR headset next year

  • harryisme 12/10/2017

    I'm not sure how capable a all in one device is going to be when it has a 1440p screen,and retail it for $200? I'll be impressed if they manage to get it's performance levels of flagship phones from two years back.

    Ofcourse it is possible the headsets are subsidised, and Facebook are hoping to recoup money through the Occulas store.

    If it's not a capable machine, this could end up damaging the VR industry, because if the experience is not great, it will end up like many GearVR headsets, fun for a while but for the majority of people it was a fun tool to play with for ten minutes and then let it gather dust in the cupboard with the Wii, Kinect and Move controllers, (though they did get repurposed for VR)

  • Officially licensed PS4 mini gamepad looks a bit like a Joy-Con

  • harryisme 12/10/2017

    I'd say the Hori controllers look more like the Wii Classic Controller than the Joycons, the button layout is almost identical, the main difference is the bottom corners are angles instead of rounded like the Wii Classic Controller. Also pretty sure they've been similar designs for bluetooth controllers for Android and IPhones as well. Reply +2
  • One month on, Destiny 2's end-game needs tuning

  • harryisme 11/10/2017

    I don't think Tokens themselves are the issue, it's the level the rewards they dish out are at, they will always be five levels below your base light level (I.e before adding mods onto gear.) once you've reach 265. So it's pretty pointless to hand them in as most cases you'll just end up sharding them anyway. This is somewhat mitigated when you do reach base level 300, as there is a possibility the vendors can give you gear at that level if you visit them at the right time, but before you reach that level it will always be 5 levels below.

    Even allot of the end game content, you do it for the powerful engram at the end of it all, and for the occasional exotic engram.

    The gear itself is also a issue, not only does it feel like there are fewer weapons in the game, the current meta only seems to include a few select weapons that are thought after, (some you get as rewards for progression anyway) the rest are all used for either infusion or shards, so if a vendor doesn't have a weapon you want, there is no reason to visit them and once you get the weapon you want, you don't have to worry about the roll as they are all the same so you only need one and then again ignore the vendor.

  • Xbox One X won't include Xbox One S' offer of free Kinect adaptor

  • harryisme 10/10/2017

    @devilmyarse I don't think they are going that route either, they seem to betting on a middle ground with Mixed Reality. We should be seeing headsets from Samsung, Acer, HP and Dell sometime this month for Windows 10.

    It was confirmed that the HDMI port does also support DP 1.2, so the box is VR, AR or MR ready, if MS decide to release a headset for the One X, they may not even go that route and just make the MR headsets compatible with the console.

  • Forza Motorsport 7 physical sales down slightly on Forza 6

  • harryisme 09/10/2017

    @Gemini_73 No you really haven't understood, I knew there was post game content, I didn't know that it would so lackluster, and uninspiring.

    I knew exactly what we were getting, it just didn't live up to the promise of the devs.

    Loot Caves were meant to be like mini-strikes, instead are boring yellow bar enemies that die with one rocket to the face. The Public Event were meant to be fun and original, instead are repetitive, paint by numbers mechanics. Nightfalls the clock is a bigger enemy than the actual strike itself. Regular Strikes are pointless as they don't give out any original loot.

    Levels caps are pretty much pointless now, as enemies scale to your difficulty anyway, they are only there now to have a barrier of entry in the Raid and Nightfall.

    I could go on...these issues were not things I expected because Nightfall were allot more fun in Destiny 1, Strikes had a purpose once they added boss specific loot, public events were a nice detraction for when you patrolling but not really important. and Loot caves were not a thing in the first game.

    Tell me how was I to know that all these post game events would fail to live up to their pre-launch promise?

    Also just because someone knows there will be MT's doesn't mean they'll know what will be behind that paywall, people bought the game thinking the paywall items would be the same as before. Bungie did not disclose that information.

    @Gemini_73 There is a difference between being angry about something and acknowledging the issues the game has.

    This is where the media like to stir things up, allot of times gamers will voice the issues they have with the game, and it will be spun as them being angry.

    I acknowledge the issues Destiny has, but I'm not angry, frustrated yeah, but I am still playing the game almost daily.

    I think the problem lies with people like yourself who think just because people complain, they must be angry, salty and/or moaning for no reason. Gamers for the large part bring up issues that they feel are holding the game back, yeah there are moaners, trolls and other problem,s but there are allot of genuine fans that complain for valid reasons, if they didn't Destiny would be as broken as it was when the first game was launched.
