    So this game is MP only right?

    Cool that you can download the original BBC version off their website, for those that don't know it is for PC only and run's in a emulator (provided with the download).

    The event was a little too small for me to travel all the way down to London. London is not car friendly at all :)

    Oh well that saves me a bit of cash :)

  • Microsoft buys Mojang and Minecraft for $2.5bn

  • makeamazing 15/09/2014

    Didnt SONY cut half their studios...which is the reason half their games are coming out in 2015-2016.
    @danielgibbs1 and which studios would that be...I'm guessing you don't know and you are just making stuff up. Yes they did make a few people redundant at two studios, thats not cut half their studios...lol. You know they have more than two studios right.

    You know theres a reason why most games are coming out in 2015/2016 because Sony supported PS3 up until late last year.

  • Sorry, Microsoft, but you can't own Minecraft

  • makeamazing 13/09/2014

    @ChromeMud The article makes perfect sense if you think about it.

    Basically the game has already sold 50 million copies on multiple platforms, the users have their own servers where they create their own content. It's a product that can be owned IP wise but may already be too big for MS to prevent people from just playing the old mine craft with mods and not any new version that comes along.

    I think for MS the biggest problem is that there are too many versions already out there, and they will look evil for buying up Mojoang. The user base will either stick with what they have or some other game will come along and they will move to it...

  • Destiny thrills, but the big picture rings hollow

  • makeamazing 10/09/2014

    I'm finding the game has very high production values and looks lovely, but seems really empty in execution.

    The area in Old Russia is not big enough and some of the spawn points are not very well placed, the lack of loot drops and hidden things, just makes it feel empty.

    I am excited to get past Old Russia and into somewhere new to be fair, having already played it in the Alpha.

    Hopefully it gets more interesting, at the moment 6-7/10.

  • Microsoft to buy Mojang for $2 billion - report

  • makeamazing 10/09/2014

    @grassyknoll Having Minecraft 2 on Windows mobile isn't going to shift phone hardware. So that would be a waste of time/cash.

    Having kids that play mine craft, they would be more interested in PC versions. If version 2 didn't come out on PC, they wouldn't bother. Just like Runescape, massive for kids, then they messed it up, kids moved away.

    Companies rarely understand kids, and buying Minecraft to just push mobile phone tech will definitely not work :)

  • makeamazing 10/09/2014

    If true for the amount, what a colossal waste of cash, which could be used to fund lots of studios working on new games.

    Hope it isn't true because it would show just how bad MS is for the gaming market...

  • iPhone 6 and Apple Watch revealed

  • makeamazing 09/09/2014

    I used to like apple phones, but I am quickly warming to the Sony Xperia line, probably going to get a Z3 next.

    As for the watch, the Motorola or Sonys new SW3 looks more interesting to be fair.

    I like apple devices, but they are just getting too costly to have them with any real memory requirements. I mean most tablets/phones you can put in extra memory... but it's becoming a real rip off. They shouldn't even be doing the 16GB ones anymore... absolute fools.

    @Suarez07 There's a big difference to "We will market it for you" and "We will stop it coming out on other platforms" though. Reply +5
  • makeamazing 05/09/2014

    It is a little funny (i.e the advert is funny), but for me it's about integrity...

    For years they have been paying to stop or delay content on PS3 and same with TR on PS4.

    So now they haven't got their own way, they are actually trying to break a commercial agreement. Personally I don't like that at all.

  • BioShock iOS is out tonight for $15

  • makeamazing 27/08/2014

    This should probably be around the 4-6 mark considering how old it is and that you can buy it quite cheaply on PS3/XBO.

    Personally I think it would have been a better value proposition had it come out on Vita, and would have been better to play control wise also. Shame.

  • Video: Ten minutes of Dead Island 2 in violent, messy action

  • makeamazing 25/08/2014

    As soon as i saw a games com interview with them where they said there was no single player story element (or something like that) and that it was based all around co-op, it's put me totally off.

    So really confused as to what this game is going to be..but at the moment I will be holding off.

    Saving this one for Xmas also.. might try and do the same with ACUnity... but we'll see - not sure I have the patience to buy some games and not play them :)

  • Ubisoft: only "vocal minority" complains about number of Assassin's Creed games

  • makeamazing 14/08/2014

    I agree and disagree somewhat with his sentiment. The turnaround/multiple teams have hurt the quality of AC over the years, 3 was truly awful, Black Flag was much better but still have some annoying things in it that should have been fixed if they didn't have so many people working on the franchise and losing sight of whats wrong/needs fixing.

    As for Rogue, I think i'm going to give it a miss and wait for the inevitable PS4 version that will probably appear next march. Getting Unity day 1 though :|

  • Far Cry 4 PlayStation exclusive Keys to Kyrat feature detailed

  • makeamazing 12/08/2014

    What exactly is the problem here... it's free for two hours. What did people expect, oh don't bother buying the full game, you can just play it if your friend has it.

    Player 1 owns the game, wants some help (in the full game might i add) - he can get his friend online, who can see if they like the game. 2 hours is a nice feature.

    Seriously gamers sometime.

  • EA Access is now publicly available on Xbox One

  • makeamazing 11/08/2014

    Games will never retire from the Vault either
    I thought it said in the terms and conditions that games could be removed at any time and that games were not "forever"....i.e it was upto the service to decide how long they stayed on the system, so that would suggest they *can be* retired. Seems the opposite???

  • Hotline Miami hits PS4 next week

  • makeamazing 11/08/2014

    Purchased it on Vita (I think..) will get it for PS4. Cool.

    Cant see why the odd person is complaining "Oh great another old game"... not everyone out there has played every single game that is released. Ok so it's already been available for PS3... i Don't know why people seem to complain that some of these older games on the previous gen has prevented everyone else from developing games on these new consoles.

  • First video of Dead Island 2 gameplay

  • makeamazing 11/08/2014

    The people who are making this (Yager Development) made Spec Ops the Line, which was well received from what I remember....so let's not write them off just yet :)

    Video wasn't brilliant (and I am a DI fan) but the setting looks quite nice, and it could be really good as the weapons look great. The biggest issues of DI was the poor engine which kept pausing/stopping every minute or so on PS3, the wooden acting and the poor missions (and I still loved the game).

    As for what happened, from what I have read, I believe techland (makers of DI and Riptide) wanted to make DI2, but Deep Silver didn't want them too (not sure why). So they came to an agreement for them to make Riptide. I guess they knew their time was up and so they started on Dying light, while Deep Silver got someone else onboard for DI2. So there is no surprise they look similar, it's because Dying light is made by the people who made Dead Island 1.

  • Unsubscribe?

  • makeamazing 03/08/2014

    @Avaloner Wrong, I criticised the whole idea of multiple subscriptions and people who are confusing choice and value with Business Deals...If it's financially a bad business decision for Sony why should they accept it.

    All I said about MS is that they were more likely to accept it because the XBO is selling badly compared to Sony.

    I didn't knock Microsoft at all.

    So I guess now I can see where you loyalty lies. You got upset because you thought I said something bad about MS...

    PS are you saying I cannot criticise MS, Sony or Nintendo, because that would make me a fanboy. Crazy.

    @Avaloner - the irony is the only one coming across as a fanboy is you.

    Lessons you need to learn in life, not everyone will agree with your point of view, this does not make them a fanboy.

    Someone getting upset and angry and someone else having a different point of view and then calling people fanboys, they are usually fanboys.

  • makeamazing 02/08/2014

    I'm sorry. You are clearly a fanboy and not worth continuing this discussion with because you are past having a rational discussion. I will just say that - thank Sony they took a decision which is in line with what you want this time. But fuck everyone else right?
    @Avaloner - lol... seriously that's the best you can do in a discussion, get all upset and angry and call people fanboys.

    I have given you some reasons why EA doesn't fit with what I want (and so have many others). That is my opinion and I am ok to have that opinion, why you are upset about that, only you know. Perhaps you love EA or something.. I don't know. Why you would be upset because i don't want another subscription service.

    If you want this service, good for you, go for it. I don't have any issue with that at all. But remember if you want an adult conversation, you have to at least try to be an adult.

  • makeamazing 02/08/2014

    Your argument is completely invalid. My point is I don't see why a consumer stands up for a company which limits his/her choice. It had nothing to do with the right of said company to carry out their business the way they see fit.
    @Avaloner - sorry thats absolute rubbish. Every single day we have to make a choice between products, services depending on the company. Why the hell can I not get Tesco cheap pasta at Morrisons. Why can I get Film A from Netflix but from from Amazon prime.

    Everyday people are making decisions on what products to buy based on what is offered. There is nothing anti consumer about a EA download service being available only on XBO. For years people haven't been able to access the free BBC i-player on XBO because of paywall issues. That for me is more anti consumer than a business service selling something.

    Again, why do I need to stand up to Sony because imho I think individual access services is a stupid idea. I don't need yet another login or account or service, I want a one stop shop. If you are so bothered about it, get an XBO (if you haven't already). Me, I'm perfectly happy to buy boxed games, or games off PSN. I have Netflix, I have Amazon Prime, I have PSN, I aint getting another monthly subscription service.

  • makeamazing 02/08/2014

    I still cannot understand people like you who 'support Sony's decision' to not allow you to make a decision.
    @Avaloner - I still cannot believe there are people who cannot understand that companies DONT have to do what other companies tell them/want them to do.

    EA and Sony are both making purely business decisions. You think EA are doing this for your benefit... they are doing it to create their own console subscription service... we don't know how much EA were willing to pay Sony for this feature..

    People who think this is just a simple Sony being an ass, really hasn't thought about how this might work, and how the financials could be split.

    For example, all downloads currently come from the console manufacturers services, so MS or Sony. Companies have to pay for bandwidth usage I believe. Companies have to pay for patches. All sales are probably 30% charge from Sony/MS.

    It's an expensive business releasing a console and they make their money back from charging their clients for products sold/usage etc. Now what if the EA services suddenly started allowing downloads outside of the Sony/MS system because you authenticate through their system. Perhaps MS have done a deal to get less than the 30% thats normally paid. Perhaps MS are willing to do this because they are selling so badly they need some kind of positive loss leader.

    So I guess what I am saying is, don't think things are just black and white, they are not. It's way more complicated than "idiot Sony making a decision for their users". :)

  • makeamazing 02/08/2014

    Which is fine, but the point is YOU make that choice...not Sony. I'm all in on PS4...but Sony dropped the ball on this one.
    @BadFlounder -to be fair it's sony's platform, so THEY can make that choice. Not only is this in direct collision with PS+, it's also on course to collide with PSNow. So why would Sony WANT to do this.

    For me, I want my console manufacturer to create a single easy to use system/entry point, I don't want three or four different services, which I have to flitter across to find the game i want to play. I don't want the extra cost, I don't want these services relying on 3rd party servers for authentication (which the EA one does). Because its additional failure on top of the PSN.

    So as you can see, there are lots of issues with this as a system regardless of the value EA are giving. If you want it, go ahead, me I'm not touching it with a bargepole.

    @bentaylor1 This won't help close the install base. MCC will sell lots of copies to XBO owners and bring in some new users, but I don't see the masses rushing to buy an XBO for an EA subscription service, on top of gold. The only thing that will help MS is new IP/games, nothing more nothing less.

  • inFamous: First Light expansion will be released on disc too

  • makeamazing 29/07/2014

    That's cool, I can wait for the box version then... that's quite a nice decision to support those who still want to buy box copies. Be interested to know the price and how long the content takes to play.

    I really enjoyed Infamous SS, it was a beautiful game and a lot of fun. I think it lacked some depth, which was probably the rush to get it out as a launch game.. but still one of the better games in the launch window imho.

    Hoping this add's some of that depth.

  • Face-Off: The Last of Us Remastered

  • makeamazing 29/07/2014

    It's not the kind of game that you play multiple times in a row, is it?
    @nottorp - that always comes down to a persons preference. I can see why when someone has played this type of game they might not want to. I think many might feel that way for a game that is a linear game.

    But i loved the storytelling of the game so much, that I want to replay it again with better fidelity and FPS (and it seems there are quite a few who will do the same).

    But totally see why some wouldn't want to play it again (or at least just yet)... but this game was so good... I personally cannot wait :)

    I purchased Tomb Raider, played that again (though that was more of a struggle for me - perhaps i remembered it more).
