  • Battlefield 4 just got a huge makeover on console

  • makeamazing 26/08/2016

    All they need to do now is get someone to re-write that totally awful dialog/story in the single player campaign and all will be good.

    Still impressed though that they went to so much trouble to update a game that's been out more than a couple of months. Seems like this is the new thing now, supporting a game longer term, and I like it.

  • Landing on a planet in Star Citizen looks spectacular

  • makeamazing 21/08/2016

    @Malek86 Well i think thats the difference.

    People can slate NMS for being devoid of stuff or at least missing that spark, but for a 10-15 person team, while SC has had $100m investment and massive teams, it should be more impressive than NMS.

    Saw the video yesterday and it was indeed very impressive. But it still felt empty. Perhaps the problem with all these games is they are going for massive universes without actually thinking about how to fill it with stuff.

    Recommend not looking at the reviews... good luck and fingers crossed for you :). I was thinking about getting it to play on my work PC, but I might delay that for now.

    @rep- I'm running it on PS4 and performance is fine, of course its a pretty slow paced game so that makes a difference.

    Though looking at steam reviews of NMS I think PS4 is probably running the better performance. :|

    @PlugMonkey That's probably the best thing I've read on this subject.

    I think the game has its issues, but i've played and got enough narrative, open world and corridor story driven games, NMS is a breath of fresh air, even if some of the elements still need some work (the whole small inventory at the start etc).

    If they can add more content I think this could be a game that I'll spend a lot of time playing, we at least going back too, DeusEx is out soon :)

    Nope. It's the job of marketing and PR to hype products.
    @IronSoldier are you now saying no one can be hyped for anything, because PR have done some stuff... you are pretty silly.

    So do I. Singing universal praise completely devoid of balance is what imbecilic fanboys do.
    Show me where have I given it universal praise, I even said it was flawed. I guess this has shown you up even more to be some kind of crazy internet hater now ;)

    I think what you meant to say is that said types of music are "crap" in your opinion.
    I thought you would be intelligent to figure that out for yourself. But obviously not.

    Except EG is a site for all genres of videogames rather than being solely for one game genre so your comparison is a false equivalence.
    Not really is it... I still wouldn't go into a particular genre of anything and talk crap about it having never heard or played it. I have no problems people saying they don't think its worth the money, or they don't really want a game that is about exploration...(hey look back up at my comments if you can care to not just pick the comments that suit your argument).

    That said, you seem to care greatly that other people may not love something as much as you appear to love something.
    @IronSoldier I don't care what other people think of the game, but I do care when people are just being knobs.

    In terms of me, I don't think I've posted much in NMS threads previously, but I have read them and all I see is you moaning.

    Its just a game, Ive never seen anyone so down on a game they "intend to buy".

  • makeamazing 12/08/2016

    Despite the fact I've stated on several occasions that I may buy the game
    @IronSoldier The problem is that you seem to be using that as an excuse to allow you to crap on the game. "I can hate on it, cause I errrrm intend to buy it" type excuse.

    I havent been on the hype train, actually I've been pretty low key on it, and am really enjoying it. But who cares if people are hyped for it, isn't that the point of video games, to be excited by a product... I just love buying and playing video games, some people just want to moan all the time.... I don't like certain types of music (rap is crap and so is jazz), but I don't go on a rap forum and shit on it constantly.

    I will buy it when its £14.99. £50 is way to much for what it is.
    @Hellotherenow Yeah its a difficult one, I think it having the "indie title" many people are thinking its not worth it.... but I think i'll easily play this for over 20-30 hours and will get my monies worth. Which is more than can be said of the recent AC games which I paid full price for and have still only put in a couple of hours each.

    I suspect though, this is going to be a total marmite game... and some people will want to wait for a discount before giving it a go.

    @IronSoldier You really despise this game don't you? Not sure why you have a problem with a reviewer thinking its worth more than a 7.

    Who cares, if you don't like the look of it, don't play it.

  • makeamazing 12/08/2016

    @Da5e Yes exactly.

    I think it harks back to a simpler old school game format. I mean if anyone remembers elite, there wasn't particular grand stuff in that game.

    Thats not to say I wouldnt like more stuff, but I'm enjoying the whole exploration and discovery which most modern AAA games seems to have lost, for example the awesome things I used to think of an assassin creeds game is lost these days after 6 or 7 of them all using similar concepts and animations. I'm not talking gameplay but just pure discovery.

    Yes I agree with the review, its a flawed game but really enjoyable.

    Didn't know you couldn't go back to where you had been though, thats a downer, hopefully they fix that in the future especially if they allow bases of some kind.

  • No Man's Sky dev pleads fans not watch gameplay leaks

  • makeamazing 30/07/2016

    Well... the game is finished and ready. People want to play. So here is crazy idea - how about instead of asking people to wait, just sell it to them?
    @Agarwel_Idiriz Because you know why right?

    Let me give you a hint... a games release date is extremely important, firstly they release it on a particular date so they can organise marketing resources and tv ad's. Secondly it ensures the game has the biggest impact on the gaming charts as possible, because a game high in the charts will be seen by other people who will then buy it. Normally a games release is also combined by in store advertising, such as posters/pods etc.

    Just because some dodgy/stupid store has released it early, they should just forget about all that investment and hard work, to placate people who want to play it earlier than the release date.

    I would like to play the game, but I also respect the fact the amount of time and effort that it takes to organise and sort out a games release.

    I heard a story the other day that someone had watched finding Dory on pirate download before it had even come out at the cinema, perhaps they should forget showing it at the cinema and just release it straight away on dvd.... you see how silly it could become.

    I'm still disappointed they haven't gone back and fixed the glaring issues with the other games.

    I mean I played TWD on PS3 and PS4 and was shocked to see they still have dialog that had mouth movement but no audio, the same for both platforms. Same issues, performance bugs etc.

    I really enjoy the series and will most likely get this :)

  • PlayStation VR will be at EGX

  • makeamazing 22/07/2016

    @robbiejc85 Well I hope you do, I had a very small pod in rezzed last year, and the crowd were great. Had a great atmosphere, and actually the AAA game queues elsewhere meant people wanted to jump on an play more in rezzed (it was very busy in rezzed but people just flowed better). I think people also liked the fact that developers were there and wanted to talk about their games. Unfortunately all the big stands were just a little bit too corporate.

    So if you can get a pod, make sure you put some devs on the stand, people will appreciate that more :) - good luck.

    In fact the Sony guys on the VR stands were really good, shame one of the VIVE guys seemed like he didn't want to be there and treated people like it.

    To be fair they should probably cancel syndicate's appearance, it's pretty unethical what he did.

    As far as EGX, loved the show last year, but the queues were :( - more room, more pods hopefully this year.

    That's still not an argument, just hot air.
    What are you on about? You were the one claiming it was an argument, I just said your statement(s) was silly.

    The game isn't even out.. I am unable to buy it. .. no one knows if it'l be good or not... or were you just coming here onto the games forum topic and just trashing a game you have yet to play... oh you are one of those types of people.

    You claim you keep the industry going by buying lots of games, buying games with obvious problems is the bane of the video game industry. Your casual disregard of glaring problems is beyond me.
    I do buy lots of games, and guess what, you have no idea what games I buy... so now you are making an assumption that 100% of the games I buy have obvious problems. I mean seriously...? Is that the route you are now going with this.

    So everyone on the eurogamer forums are the bane of the video games industry...because I am sure 100% of users own games that I own.... lol.. you really are a pratt.

    But why do I need to counter your argument, you've made no argument, just childish and outlandish comments.

    It's people like you that have run the video game industry into the ground, simply not caring is the cancer of the industry.
    I mean seriously, why would anyone need to counter this stupid statement. I have no control over what any of these companies do, I have no control over how historically accurate they are. If I don't like what they are doing in a game, I just don't bloody buy it.

    All I know is I buy lots of games, and it's people like me who buy lots of games that keep the industry going. So actually you can thank me for being such a good chap.

    Certainly no anger from my side, just surprise, I can be blamed for all problems in the games industry.. because I like video games, and don't necessarily care about historical accuracies in said video game.

    Did you even read my reply? I said I would prefer a more authentic game. I don't work for EA, I can't control what they make, they could have put space ships in the game. I don't know, I don't care, I don't control it.

    Perhaps I am just older than you and have learnt that theres no point in getting angry and upset about things I cannot control. Perhaps you are not mature enough in that way yet to understand how life is.

    It's people like you that have run the video game industry into the ground, simply not caring is the cancer of the industry.

    @ciaranhillock I just don't care...

    The game has massive balloons, tanks that drive super fast, and other stuff that makes it not an authentic game. I don't think this is the game for realism.

    Would I have preferred an authentic WW1 game, yes i would have, but I'm not going to get mad because its not the realistic game I wanted.

  • Three years on, how does Bioshock Infinite hold up?

  • makeamazing 03/07/2016

    The game was overhyped by gaming sites. It was a colourful and at times beautiful game, but let down by a mish mash of areas, boring backtracking and a confusing story.

    I will be buying the collection when it comes out, but that will be to play Bioshock 1 again and attempting to complete 2.

    Really loved the Orchestra from Sony, such class and I really did enjoy the whole woman making funny noises, it went with the song...lol.

    But yes my favourite is definitely Chris, so funny, and I cannot imagine how embarrassing that would have been for some people. I applaud EG for covering VR porn though, even though I can imagine why people might not want to talk about it, but it is part of the landscape. I just wish Chris was able to ask some more detailed questions about its update and what success they have had, just because I think it could define VR in the future (seems like he wanted to get away as quickly as possible...lol :)

  • Are 4K visuals really the best use for Project Scorpio and PlayStation Neo?

  • makeamazing 18/06/2016

    I agree with the general sentiment of give me 1080p with 60fps with as much graphical enhancements and effects as possible.

    I might buy a 4K screen in the future, but it's really not the reason I want a new console, I want better AI, better frame rates, better looking textures, quicker loading, I'll take all of that over 4k. What would be a big disappointment would be a machine running 4k with no more effects or improvements and still at 30fps, then I think both MS and Sony have missed the point.

    I think this is a reaction to this gens, 720p/900p fiasco but I think its totally the wrong direction.
