  • Mike Morhaime borrowed 15K from his nan to start Blizzard

  • makeamazing 15/09/2017

    I'm interested in did he continue to pay it off, did he pay it off early and did his nan know that they got success. Otherwise its just a story about a guy getting a loan. Reply +9

    Was a pretty good game, will get for PS4 no doubt. Lets hope you get someone to review the next game who isn't as banal about it all. Reply +12
  • Xur makes Destiny 2 debut - and he's sitting in a tree

  • makeamazing 15/09/2017

    @Eldritch Unfortunately the problem for gaming sites needing cash, is they focus on the big games because that's where they get the most clicks.

    Guess its about time a new gaming website came along and focused on the hundreds of other games that seem to get ignored... hopefully one appears that I like the format of sooner or later...lol.

  • Dead Rising 4 confirmed for PS4

  • makeamazing 02/09/2017

    @FASELI Yeah totally bizarre. Wondering if any gaming journalists have actually asked the question where is 3 or just report the fact that 4 is coming. I mean for PS4 users they are going to be missing it from their collection, which is crap.

    Hoping someone asks the question that many people are wanting to know.

    Certainly not getting this for full price, especially as they won't release DR3. Got the other two, don't see why I should reward taking a series and stopping me getting the set. Reply -2

    Thanks EG, ordered PS5 last night for 30. They don't have stock, but it'll come in sooner or later - I'm in no rush. My son got it on release and its supposed to be good and I'm enjoying my Yakuza games, so why not try something else. Reply -1

    @ihnm_aims to be fair, Sony has already killed it this year, and with MS's lack of exclusives yet again, Sony is killing the rest of this and next year... its embarrassing... but the Power!!!! Reply +7
  • makeamazing 20/08/2017

    The thing is until its out you won't know what kind of support it'll get.

    @Malek86, Sony had quite a few games enhanced at launch, wouldn't say that Sony didn't support it, but it was patchy in places.

  • 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.

    Was going to get this last Christmas when it was 25, but went up to 40, really only interested in the single player element which apparently isn't very long. Was hoping they'd add more SP content rather than more MP stuff.

  • 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.

  • Watch: Everything we know about Life is Strange Before the Storm so far

  • makeamazing 01/07/2017

    @young_nell Not really winning or losing, but providing a fitting and enjoyable ending to the game. For me it just wasn't a satisfying ending regardless of which ending you end up getting. Reply 0
  • makeamazing 01/07/2017

    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.

  • makeamazing 15/06/2017

    @Stornatus Yes thats a good link and at least one gaming site is trying to give it a go.

    I know of many indie game devs (its a great little community that talk to each other), and even when spending lots of money showing the games off at shows, most gaming sites totally ignore them... they just want to get the next sound bite from the top guys.... they are not interested in the small fish unfortunately.

  • makeamazing 15/06/2017

    @Stornatus I think you are jumping to a few conclusions now mate. Who says I've done no marketing. You talk like indies have money to throw at this to begin with but in most cases its just not possible. Even if you spend money on marketing it still doesn't mean gaming sites will pick up your game and mention it. It is hard.

    Advertising does not come free, you can post youtube videos, contact gaming sites but that gains very little traction these days. Personally I've spent over 2k on marketing so far. In terms of marketing thats really nothing, but for indies (thats come out of my own pocket)...thats a massive amount.

    The more stuff you have allowed onto steam in one go the harder it is to get noticed if its part of your launch week. If you don't believe thats true, thats fine, but I'm not going to go around the houses explaining it to you. If you really think marketing is that easy for indie devs I suspect you need to make an indie game and see how well you get on.
    Reply +1
  • makeamazing 15/06/2017

    so advertise. Steam doesn't owe you a living, it's your duty to market your game, not Steam's.
    @Stornatus Lol, let me just check in my deep pockets for all the cash I have hidden there... I didnt say they owed me anything, but lowering the quality bar helps no one. Indie devs will find it harder to get to their market, while users will get lots of crap they don't want or need.

    If you asked any indie dev most would have been happy to pay $500 per game because they want to stop the rot, but to allow 3500 on the store in a couple of weeks, can you not see why thats a problem?
    Reply +1
  • makeamazing 14/06/2017

    @Bernkastel You make a valid point, its been this way for a couple of years, but adding 3500 and most were crap, doesn't bode well for when I release my game and it disappears under the weight of everything else releasing at the same time.

    I know people say quality/good ideas will rise, but just like IOS i've seen many good products disappear because of the amount of rubbish making it difficult to find it.

  • makeamazing 14/06/2017

    The quality of some of those games they are approving (if you follow the indie topics on Facebook) is so low they shouldn't have even got through.

    Steam is starting to become more like the apple store with just tons of crap on it.

    Really? It has an install base of 2m+ units and people are desperate to buy games for it
    @doswillrule And how many do PS4/XBO and PC have... from the CGI stuff it doesn't look like a cheap game, so they are going to need it to not be exclusive to make its money back.

  • Assassin's Creed Origins on Xbox One X: can third parties hit 4K?

  • makeamazing 14/06/2017

    The bottom line - Assassin's Creed Origins may not be a native, 'true' 4K game, but it really doesn't matter. - it does matter
    @carmagainagain totally agree. On a machine that they are saying is the only 4K machine, why are journalists not saying to Phil/MS, "why are you calling it that when PS4 Pro can do both 4K native and checkerboarding, and XB is doing the same"....

    The only person asking the hard questions at E3 seemed to be Geoff Keighly and the BBC (two totally that I didnt expect)... tis a shame.

  • The E3 Bulletin: Wednesday

  • makeamazing 14/06/2017

    @Crunchyroll2016 I actually think EG's review of the Sony conference was spot on.

    When MS has been so weak this gen in terms of exclusives... and Sony have tons of games coming in the next 18 months, why would you bring forward anything thats in development early to announce. As thats been part of the problem of this generation is that games getting announced way to early. TLOU2 should not really have been announced when it was, even if we all knew it was coming, as they were at that point only in early dev. Its not coming till 2019 I would say, so why show it.

    Keep your power dry and hold off announcing stuff until you are much closer to the release. Not as much fun but certainly having a more quiet conference will help later on.

    Though to be fair if Sony had just moved 3 or 4 things from the pre conference show it would have been much much better... why they did that I don't know.

  • makeamazing 14/06/2017

    The Last of Us 2 was absent from the Sony conference in order to give Uncharted a chance, which is understandable because low-key releases like Uncharted really need to be smart about their PR.
    I think they realised that TLOU2 is still probably 2 years off, why keep showing small bits of it off, leave it a year when you actually have something proper to show off. Otherwise you'll get gamers moaning about when's it releasing. They need to get release dates for the big amount of other games first.

  • makeamazing 12/06/2017

    Metro looked great but wasn't gameplay and wasn't running on XBOX hardware.
    AC looked the same, worse colours and a giant snake (wtf)
    Sea of thieves looked funny, but wheres the depth
    Crackdown looked really poor
    Real 4K - whatever that means
    Lots of indies and hardly any exclusives misdirection.

    Overall I thought the showing was not bad for games, but quite poor when you strip it back and ignore the "Launch Exclusive" rubbish.

    Bethesda conference was lame, can't believe I stayed up for that... Paid mods, VR but not for PS4, Wolfenstien had a long and confusing trailer, not much else to show (me want rage HD).

    This E3 isn't going that well so far.... lets hope Ubisoft have something to reveal.

    @williamarthurfenton we're talking exclusives for this current gen. PS4/Pro, XBO/XBX... any game coming out exclusively for that platform. Why would people even bother moving from PS4 to Xbox if they don't care about 4K and they don't have enough exclusives... THATS what people are saying, not exclusives just for the XBX.

    And yes I am sure some people will buy to have the most powerful console, thats not the point people are making.

    @SpaceMonkey77 PS4 has a crap ton of exclusives.. perhaps you don't play on it so you don't know or don't care.

    @williamarthurfenton - Its not about pretty graphics, its about showing why you'll invest (and it is an investment if you are a gamer) in one eco system over another. If you already play on PS4, they need to show why you'd invest in a new console or jump on board.

    As I said I thought it was MS's best conference, but still nothing that screams must have (or cannot be got on PC).

    @williamarthurfenton I don't think thats fair. I think people are saying that the majority of the content is 3rd party or launch exclusive. So remove them (as you can play them on PS4), what is left, Cuphead looks amazing and so does Ori, Sea of Thieves looks good but is MP. Other than that what else is there to convince people to pay £449 for a XBOX? Thats what people are saying, good showing by MS standards, lots of games, different genres, but what outstanding to make people move from PS4. Reply +1
