  • EA has switched off Star Wars Battlefront 2's microtransactions

  • makeamazing 17/11/2017

    True say! And all credit to Eurogamer for not letting it go I think.
    @thepiedpiper To be fair, they havent really done much except report news of the incident, you should be thanking the youtubers (angry joe, jim sterling), and more direct sites like PCWorld who had a fantastic review of Need for Speed. EG has played the middle ground abit imho. While some of these people who dont get ad revenue have been more to the point, loot boxes in a full priced game are shit and should reflect the score... i.e Avoid.

    Fantastic, though why do I feel this is just another misdirection until the issue goes away and they just add it back in, didnt Forza or something only introduce it after launch so that it wouldnt get so much crap from gamers.

    Someone needs to start the same storm with Need for Speed.

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

  • makeamazing 10/11/2017

    That 40% processing advantage of the X is a much deeper gulf than the existed between the PS4 nd the orginal Xbox One
    @GreatnessAwaits - no I believe the gap between the original PS4 and XBO was approx 35-40% (thats how bad the original xbox one was, it improved with the S due to a slight uptick in processor speed).

    Yup. Sony will slap that big fat 4K sticker on this, but it won't even be close to hitting the mark most of the time.
    @GreatnessAwaits You do know that some X1X titles are also running adaptive right... before you get all uppity about it.

  • Halo 5: Xbox One X's most impressive 4K upgrade?

  • makeamazing 10/11/2017

    Looks sharper, much better resolution and stable framerate, but did we not expect that considering how poor the XBO was, but wow that video was terrible... what was with the BIG TEXT... I normally like DF but that was a little over the top.

    Still got a low shadow pop in and close visible rendering circle, and z fighting.

  • Sony's Paris press conference suggests we need a new way to show difficult games

  • makeamazing 31/10/2017

    Another depressingly negative article from EG. I do wish there was a gaming site out there that was more positive about the industry, rather than just trying to bring it down all the time.

    Asking for tonal level from a company that makes a wide range of games is a strange request especially as this is no different from other events. I enjoyed the show and enjoyed the trailers.

    The only thing I do agree on is they should at least put age ratings at the start of any videos that weren't age appropriate.

  • David Cage on Detroit and its depiction of domestic violence

  • makeamazing 31/10/2017

    What it seems like people is giving him a pass when he chose to lead with this demo
    @Machiavellian but why can he not lead with this demo, its not like this is the first demo they've shown. Personally for me it got the message across perfectly well of what the game is trying to do. It's got AI at the front, but its actually more about the human condition and how we treat each other (what most AI/robot stories are about).

    He doesn't need to show confidence that he can handle the subject matter, that's the point I'm making. He is a creator who wants to deal with human stories. He doesn't need to prove he can handle the writing at all, once its made, we'll all judge it and make that decision if its any good, but that still doesn't mean he shouldn't do it regardless of how good a writer people think he is. If anyone on EG wanted to write about this in a game, they are perfectly ok to do so.

    Some gaming sites (polygon for ages), wanted to be the moral compass of gaming, seems certain elements of EG want to do the same now and again. But sure they'll do a few play through videos on youtube when its released for that click ad cash.

    You may find once its released its totally rubbish writing, I might think its the best game ever. That's what makes humans different, we all find different things good or bad. But to stifle that with a couple of articles today about how Sony shouldn't be doing it, isn't helpful at all.

    A good interviewer goes in and gets the person on board and gets them to explain why they did something (no being judgemental), not ask combative questions and putting people on the back foot. Funny that gaming sites want positive gaming and do the opposite.

    You are assuming that Cage cover this content in a meaningful way but it could just be hit piece within the story to invoke emotion but nothing more.
    @Machiavellian I'm not assuming anything, what I am saying is that he as an artist/creator is perfectly allowed/acceptable for him to cover subject matters that any other medium can do with a free pass.

    We'll see once its released if he's told it well. For me and many others his story telling in Heavy Rain was pretty good, could of it been better, sure (but so could the writing in thousands of books and movies). He still made an interesting and thought provoking game.

    This current don't want adult themes in games (which ironically one site writes and others follow - click bait much?) is getting silly.

    The gaming press really needs to stop attempting to be the guardians of gamers and let their audience drawn their own conclusions
    @Sephiro - absolutely. Sick and tired being told what is acceptable or not, when its perfectly acceptable in other mediums.

    Sometimes these type of articles remind me of the weird attitudes of some people...a guy I used to work with, didn't like the fact that I didn't care about dead islands bikini special edition model (I said it was a little tasteless but didn't care), he was really upset that I didn't care... you know its terrible you should care, until I reminded him of the manga child models he had on his desk showing off their panties.

    Absolute shocking interview by EG..

    Games made for adults and adults playing games, shame some of the so called gaming press cant grow up.

    The subjects he is trying to cover are adult themes for people who are adults.

  • Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus review

  • makeamazing 27/10/2017

    What it needs now, I think, is a new lead and possibly even, whisper it, a change of genre.
    No it doesn't need that, its perfectly fine as it is (being great).

    Had enough of reviewers telling publishers that they wanted every game to have Multiplayer, or open world, had many a good game ruined by that push.

  • Xbox Game Pass can help fund big budget single-player games, Microsoft says

  • makeamazing 27/10/2017

    @christinekuni Yeah its a bizarre positioning, we've got the most powerful console, but forget single player, try out online service for games. Weird. Reply 0
  • makeamazing 27/10/2017

    Games as a service... next up, paying for Loot boxes will help more single player games get made.

    Heres an idea, dont spend $2b on minecraft and dont spend $1b on American football TV rights and you've got a ton of cash to make more games than anyone on the planet.

    See how easy that was.

    To me this just reads as we want you to buy digital or service based games only. All they are doing is reverting to their crappy start of the gen.

  • You can currently get a Steam Link for 80p

  • makeamazing 21/10/2017

    Try this one secret purchase that has housewives shocked....

    Come on EG you can do better than that, it's not 80p. If I give steam 80p they won't send me the item... so its not 80p.

    Additional costs may be incurred.

    So how do I get the additional costs not to be incurred.... even that line is BS. Additional costs *will* be incurred.

  • Here's a decent look at Star Wars: Battlefront 2's single-player campaign

  • makeamazing 19/10/2017

    Due to loot boxes I've cancelled my order. I know it wont make much difference in the scheme of things, but sometimes i just cant justify supporting crap practices like this. I'll pick it up later at a cheaper price.

    The thing is i order so many games and it costs me a lot of money, it doesnt take much stupidity on their part for me to cancel an order because i am prepared to support the industry with my wallet.

  • EA has shut down Visceral Games

  • makeamazing 17/10/2017

    To be fair for the last 4-5 years at least EA have gone missing as a company, they just mainly do core franchises. In fact Ubisoft have definitely become a better developer and publisher in that time (I know some people dont like Ubisoft but on the whole they are seriously better than EA). It's strange at one point it was Ubisoft trying to become a better studio and EA were totally out of arms reach. Amazing how it all turns around.

    Wonder what happened to EA for them to actually become a creatively devoid company.

    Focus groups are all well and good, but having seen some of real life results they can give, i wouldnt bet my life on it and would trust talented designers over that.

    Linear star wars game will be much better than yet another open world dragged out experience.... and this is coming from someone who loves open world games. Unfortunately unless you really want to invest in it, it's going to be a borefest.

    Oh come on, this is exactly the same situation as Shadow of War where you pay to speed stuff up, just said in different marketing speak. Hopefully the groundswell of negativity will help remove this from games.

  • Westwood's Blade Runner is an all-time classic in danger of being forgotten

  • makeamazing 07/10/2017

    This game pops up quite a bit at retro events. I have the four disks, one was slightly damaged but was able to copy it sector by sector and get it running using a German patch.

    It's an amazing game and still one of those games that brings back happy memories of my earlier gaming experiences (the soundtrack and setting does a fantastic job). Good times. If you can get a chance to get hold of it you should, I saw it selling for around 5 at retro events. Well worth that and more.

  • Ataribox: Ouya 2.0, evolved Steam Machine or something more?

  • makeamazing 30/09/2017

    I think having seen the cost of the ATARI classics on PS4 and how they split them onto two disks for what could have easily been on one shows how much scalping Atari do these days. There's no way this device will be worth the cost of entry and trying for the retro feel won't change that. Reply +3

  • Shadow of War developer discusses the game's controversial loot boxes

  • makeamazing 25/09/2017

    Unfortunately I do feel sorry for Devs who are wheeled out and have to justify a crappy implementation. It's not always the case, I've met a few creators in the past who were so up for this kind of thing when it first raised it's ugly head on IOS (its for the Whales were doing them a favour). But most designers would look on in horror these days when this is suggested. Did companies not learn from Dead Space 3... that went well.

    People seem to think that the dev's can give interviews and say something negative about their game, they cant, they'd be fired. So without knowing if this dev is behind this idea or not, its not fair to slate him for it.

    But, thanks to the article I am very happy as its reminded me to cancel my pre-order. Will buy once cheap.

  • Translation requests hold up European PS4 release of Night Trap - 25th Anniversary Edition

  • makeamazing 17/08/2017

    Limited Run Games is the easiest to pre-order. F5 when the countdown finishes. Already be logged into their site and Paypal.
    @utherp True I could have done that but thats not really good customer service.

    I feel these companies are actually punishing people who really want to buy from their sites and are rewarding scalpers.I logged on a day after it was put on the store and it was all gone.

    The same nearly happened with the Thing Special edition, I just don't get it, just let as many people pre-order as possible early in advance and then make that many disks, its still a limited run.

  • makeamazing 16/08/2017

    Don't get me started on this game..... wanted to get it on disk as a game collector.

    Was going to get it from limited run games, who it seems are like most limited runs and decided to let scalpers buy multiple copies at a time and then don't sort out the copies for anyone else.

    Just allow as many to pre-order up to the date and then manufacture based on that... its not difficult.

  • Mad Max and the open world game as character study

  • makeamazing 16/08/2017

    Mad Max, one of the most boring exiting games this generation. Too much repetition, poor writing, boring collectables but something always dragged me back. That was Mad Max the persona that kept making me want to play. Some modification and it could have been one hell of a game.

    What I also hated was the lack of post support from avalanche, which made the game impossible to 100% complete if you didn't do some of the challenges straight off. They couldn't even be bothered to add in reset bases and tracks. To be fair after playing all the way through of just cause, that was a similar lack of quality, polish and design, so I guess I'll keep away from their games at launch in the future.

  • After years of PlayStation exclusivity, looks like Spotify is finally headed to Xbox One

  • makeamazing 05/08/2017

    It might make for a good Gamescom announcement...
    That would make a bad Gamescom announcement. Firstly theres a reason its called "GAMEScom" and secondly MS need to be talking about games at that show and now apps as currently they are getting absolutely trounced by Sony in the games department.

    Edit: Would love to know the people who neg accurate statements. Are you saying if MS went to gamescom and said they had Spotify they wouldn't get abuse for it, they would. Also they are getting trounced by Sony, what games have they released this year, Sony (and Nintendo) have been releasing games while MS have had nothing except 3rd party.

    Enjoyed the first, writing was a bit cheesy and wasn't a big fan of the whole "drugs" side of it, though it made sense towards the end.

    Not really sure where they can take this, I enjoyed the original, but I am getting a bit tired of the "You make decisions" but you don't really make decisions aspect of these games. The ending to life is strange was a big disappointment to me in the end. As its one of those "Whatever you do you cannot win" choices, and I hate that.
