  • Tony Hawks Pro Skater 5 review

  • harryisme 02/10/2015

    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?

  • What's it like to play Rainbow Six: Siege alone?

  • harryisme 30/09/2015

    I got a Beta key for this game yesterday for XBO, which was a bit random,have no one to play with so no use to me.

    GKG94-PX6DJ-9WVW6-7KMWF-G4HQZ if anyone wants to try it out and see if it's not broken.

  • Rare reflects on its lost Conker game, Gettin' Medieval

  • harryisme 29/09/2015

    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?

  • Watch: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 is a bit of a glitchy mess

  • Mind games: The battle of wits that unites snooker and Hearthstone

  • harryisme 28/09/2015

    @NimbusTLD Wasn't really a mismatch, Peter Ebden is a former world champion and someone who was at the top of his game at the time. He was probably ranked higher than Ronnie at the time of the match as well.

    I beleive that Ebdon actually won that match. So it wasn't a mismatch in terms of skill, more a mismatch in terms of playing style.

  • Mighty No. 9 gets a new release date in February

  • harryisme 26/09/2015

    Any particular reason you felt the need to list all the versions being released in February?

    I'm still not sold on the look of the game, that screen for example, we have a blue 3D model charactor surrounded by blue background and objects, it's kinda hard to distinguish the main charactor from everything else...I was hoping the delay would have meant the game got a visual upgrade.

  • Lego Dimensions has a three year plan for more levels and characters

  • harryisme 25/09/2015

    99 bloody buggering hell, *googles US price* $99. So not only is the price on it's own a pisstake us Brits are paying another 30%+ on top of that (I took out 20% VAT).

    I did say that if we let Activision screw the UK consumer over with the Destiny DLC prices without making any noise others will follow....and here we are.

    It's like WB are just not happy unless the piss off the gamers, It's like the positive reviews of Mad Max upset them so they had to make us all mad again. I'm not even going to get started on the 1000 plus additions.

  • Bungie stamps out Destiny's Three of Coins exotic engram exploit

  • harryisme 25/09/2015

    @d2_s you're not wrong there make. I didn't abuse the Exotic engram much, but did get five engrams, and the first three were all Suros Regimes.

    Like you I keep on getting the same Legendary's, I think I've recieved atleast two of each legendarys I got (lost count of how many of the crappy vangaurd sidearm I got). Also not recieve a single legendary Hakke weapon. All been Suros or Omeron, do they even exist?

    Edit: I've yet to recieve a single exotic the old fashion way except the Reef bounty that had the weapon as the reward. It was easier in year one.

  • Here's the Call of Duty Black Ops 3 1TB PS4

  • harryisme 23/09/2015

    OK I like the colour Black, I also like Orange, and Grey is good too...those three together in this combination is just god awful. The console itself is bad bu that controller? Looks like a cheap chinese knockoff made for little kids designed by a colour blind individual.

    What did they do? looked at forum posts about CoD and saw how everyone is always trolling how the MP is full of whiney bratty five years olds, and design a console only a five year old could like?

  • Northbot or Nolandroid? Destiny's new Ghost actor confirms

  • harryisme 22/09/2015

    I just call him, Norbot, or Norbert, the other names just don't roll off the tongue as easily...it sure ain't DinkelBot that's for sure.

    It's a shame they made the main charactor silent now, we have the entire Tower and Reef jabbering in your ear as well as Norbot, and silent bob just nods and does as told. it's a step backward...they fleshed out the rest of the cast, and then made the MC's none existant..makes no sense.

  • Karin confirmed for Street Fighter 5

  • harryisme 17/09/2015

    @MrTomFTW We fans don't like talking about Fighting Jam, it was one of the reasons why when Ono was revealed as the producer for SFIV, some of were worried, as he was the one who produced Fighting Jam, (though it was later revealed he came in late and it ws a lost cause before he was put in charge.

    I was hoping they'd do something about the hair drills, seems to be a Japanese stereo type for rich school girls with Western Parents. Blonde Hair with Drill like curls, and that snooty laugh. Anime, Manga and games, they overuse that stereotype. Though Karin seems to be one of the earlier uses of said type.

    Was this Rashid also announced this week? Rashid being my second name, I might have to see if I can make him my main.

  • PlayStation 4 CUH-1200 'C-Chassis' review

  • harryisme 14/09/2015

    Worth an upgrade? No, worth getting this version over current version? probably.

    I expect both MS and Sony are aiming at next holiday season to release their true redesigned consoles, the holdup is unfortunitely still on AMD's side, or more accurately the fabrication facility they use (I think it's Global Foundries) that are still stuck on the 28nm. Once production moves to 14nm we'll hopefully see smaller and quieter consoles, (well smaller from MS and quieter from Sony.)

  • Can the new Apple TV succeed as a games machine?

  • harryisme 13/09/2015

    The new device seems to be 10 years behind, in that the controller appears to be similar to the Nintendo Wiimote. They've taken a approach to appeal to the casuals, but the thing is the casuals have already moved onto other devices like the ipad.

    This feels very much like the move Nintendo made with the WiiU, going for a markett that no longer exists. Yeah it will sell, let's face it you stick a apple logo on a cardboard box, price it 100 and the fanboys will buy it. But this won't appeal to gamers who want more powerful hardware, and won't appeal to casuals as they very likely already own a device they can play these games on.

    So judging from the companies previous exploits, you'll have to pay entrance fee but that will only allow you to go on a few rides, other rides and facilities will be extra. While the rides look very nice and exciting they will be prone to allot of technical difficulties and will constantly be getting fixes. Oh and on entry you will given a gps band that will monitor your every movement, and if the band for some reason stopped working or the GPS system crashed, you will be accused of trespassing and promptly escorted out of the premises.

    @Wonderboyf60 Well we don't know how well it will sell in other regions, I expect the PS3 version will shift allot more units in Japan.

    Good to hear it sold so well, UK is only one of the regions, I expect once the sales figures for NA and Japan come in, Konami will be regretting their decision of disbanding the dev team that made them over a hundred million in revenue in under a week.

  • Halo composer Marty O'Donnell wins Bungie legal battle

  • harryisme 07/09/2015

    I remember thinking Bungie made a dumb move when the first thing they announced after buying their independance from Microsoft was a 10 year exclusive deal with Activision. I literally facepalmed at that news.

    Everyone knew how controlling Activision was, the treatment of the creaters of Call of Duty, the demise of Bizarre Creations and Radical Entertainments (two developers that had been around for over20 years before Activision killed them.).

    They writing was on the wall, we all knew Activision would put their noses in Bungies business and force changes to maximise profits, and this is exactly what happened.

    I'm happy to see Marty got compensated for his work, it's a shame we may never get to find out what happened with the lead writer, that poor guys years of work got scrapped and cut into freaking grimoire cards.

  • 1080p60 and beyond: the best PC hardware for Metal Gear Solid 5

    @patchbox360 Correction, Kojima productions did better than Rocksteady, that is completely believable. As is Konami did better than WB Interactive.

    Though WB appear to be learning, Mad Max apparently runs well on PC, and they dropped the 360/PS3 port of MK as they couldn't get it running 60fps, where we know before the Batman debacle they would have published it dispite it being a poor port.

  • New Xbox One bundle includes 1TB solid state hybrid drive

  • harryisme 01/09/2015

    Really tempted to get this, considering the controller on it's own will cost over a 100. Well be interesting to see how MS will make use of the Hybrid drive, will they stick the OS on the SSD portion and not use the rest as a buffer, or will they use it as a buffer as well.

    I really like the look of the black and white controller as well, shame about the gold triggers that puts me off, hopefully we'll see a a pur Black and white version for this controller without the gold...that would make it a must buy.

  • The obscure baseball game that went on to be the PC's second highest ranked game

  • harryisme 30/08/2015

    @DrStrangelove Sports Interactive is doing just fine with the Football Manager games, so I don't think this article will make a lick of difference. I remember a few years ago when IGN gave Football Manager a bad review and got bombarded with unhappy fans who were not happy IGN let someone who didn't understand the genre review it. It's the only time I remember IGN rereviewing a game.

    The User reviews for this are like the person who reviewed FM all those years ago, they don't understand the genre so they think it's a bad game.

    Not gonna lie, I read the headline and thought Amazon have started a recycling scheme with the local recycling plants where you can get amazon store credit for empty cans of Pepsi, coke etc. I completely forgot about their Game trade-in scheme.

    This could be the beginning of an influx of these mobile games on the XBL as Microsoft works to integrate their platforms closer to each other and make cross development easier...I guess every good idea can also be used for evil.

    Looks likes a WiiU game, not even an upscaled version either, just a direct cheap port, I wasn't expecting much but I didn't expect the port to be this lazy.

    Also maybe it's me but it looks like they've applied a wierd filter that makes it look like you are stood in front of a giant monitor, like you are playing those old arcade shooters like time crisis.

  • Chinese console crowdfunding project manages to rip off PS4 and Xbox One

  • harryisme 17/08/2015

    Six months to come up with the design? I guess they couldn't decide if they wanted the unit to look like a XBO without the fan grills like the PS4, or to look like a PS4 with the fan grills like the XBO, I guess they decided on the latter in the end...that's some dedicated decision making there...lol Shame they didn't take as much time on deciding which name to rip-off, Ouye? Might as well call the console the titanic.

    Forgetting the fact it's a rip-off in design, depending on the console specs, it might be worth investing in the project, 45 could be a good price to pay for the unit if you can install emulaters and play old arcade games on it.

    All three concepts show how Rare are aiming for the more grown up crowd, but MS wanted them to stick with kid friendly kinect games.

    Shame as dry and monotone as Dinkladge was, he kinda grew on you, and as much as I Nolan North, hearing him and Troy Baker in every other game is kinda tiring and a change would be nice.

    So Legendary weapons won't be upgradable? that sucks, I thought for sure they'd be upgradable until Destiny 2 came out, not become obsolete so soon, this is specially annoying as the Taken King finally allowed for older weapons that we'd kept in our limited space vault to be upgraded. What was the point if this was the plan?

    Well considering Team17 is a independant developer largely known for the Worms series and have been around for 25 years they can provide the developers valuable information that has allowed them to stay independant for a quarter of a century, which could come in handy for developers who until recently worked for a company with more money than sense.

    Their help in controlling their finances could be vital, we've seem many kickstarters fail or seek alternative financing because money ran out too quickly. Team 17 on the other hand have been doing it for decades.

  • The Taken King is the expansion Destiny has been waiting for

  • harryisme 01/07/2015

    Sorry, But from what I just read, it doesn't even look like it justifies the $40 price tag let alone the 40 ($62) price tag was Brits are being charged. A new area only as large as the Cosmedrome? Hate to tell you this but the Cosmedrome is really not that big, I was not impressed by the world size of Destiny, considering we went to the Moon, Venus and Mars, the actual area's covered on that planed were not that great. It felt like we were just capturing a small area of each planet and leaving the rest to the enemies.

    I paid 40 for Destiny, and from the sounds of it EG seems to think a third of that content justifies the same cost. I guess next year when Destiny 2 falls, with a full game worth of content you'd be OK with paying 120 for it?

  • Nier is the rare game that gets better with age

  • harryisme 28/06/2015

    Neir was a great game, if I had to complain it would be the lack of collectables, and the difficulty, I'd pretty much maxed out my charactor well before the final boss, and I beleive I had collected all the weapons etc, so never felt the need to continue playing from the second charactors perspective after you have completed the game in with the Main Charactor. Because of that it felt like a short game, specially for the RPG, however it was a very enjoyable game and would highly recommend it to anyone. Reply 0
