  • Fallout 3 shows Xbox One backward compatibility at its best

  • makeamazing 15/11/2015

    @ClemFandango Why do you care if you own both?

    Seriously, people need to get past the people who are defending consoles so much. Cant you just ignore them?

    I usually go with the- is feature A/B any good, who cares where the console is from.

    @ClemFandango I think you are missing the point somewhat.

    People are lauding backwards compatibility as this amazing thing, while in some/many? of the games are running sub 25FPS, which isn't any better than what they were on the X360.

    There is one thing having backwards compatibility and there is another having one that works and makes you feel it worthwhile wanting to use it. If it's un-useable then whats the point.

    As EG says, it could possibly improve in time. So that is certainly something, but how much is MS willing to invest in time/money on the feature, or is it just to get it out of the door.

    So yeah, apparently it's just PC and Sony fans (and some naughty MS fans who have played it and are concerned by the FPS) who cannot be objective according to you.

    I think there are always two sides to the story... just a shame you cannot see that Clem.

  • Bethesda shipped 12m copies of Fallout 4 for launch

  • makeamazing 13/11/2015

    @Old_Books Ah awesome. If I can put a pre-fab building down and not have to do time consuming walls etc, and then just fill it with crap, thats much better.

    Guessing I need to upgrade my town perks or something to do that?

  • makeamazing 13/11/2015

    Really great game, just a shame the base building is a little too much hassle for my liking.

    Haven't got too far into it yet, but can you just build a prefab building for the buildings that you clear away? Placing individual walls is just a pain in the butt and not very intuitive.

    So we are looking at 4-6m first week?

  • Microsoft's cheeky video explains Xbox One backwards compatibility

  • makeamazing 13/11/2015

    I know it's probably only me with this voice, but I would actually just prefer more remasters....

    And yes I would buy many games that I already had if they had 1080 and a better frame rate... I mean Fallout 3 on PS3 was terrible performance wise, would love to play it with a new lick of paint and a frame rate that doesn't go in the low ten. I do not though want to play the same game with no real improvements.

    The report noted that its biggest grossers were NBA 2K16, a Spike Lee joint which sold-in 4m units
    I think you need to add the word project after "A Spike Lee joint".

    Impressed by the sales numbers of NBA.... personally can't see Battleborn doing that well for them at all.

  • Fallout 4 fans furious as GAME cancels Pip-Boy Edition pre-orders

  • makeamazing 06/11/2015

    If you work at GAME can you explain why on earth they have the monopoly where I live and choose to price themselves out of the market for the last 2-5 years
    @Episode13 - I don't work for game, but I don't understand why people don't know why they are so expensive. it's not cheap running a business,

    1. Rent - Usually a massive amount every year. Considering anything from 60-100k
    2. Business Rates - this can be very expensive depending on store size, but anything from couple hundred to 1k a month.
    3. Electricity/water/heating
    4. Staff... NIC contributions also
    5. VAT
    6. Tax Tax Tax
    7. Stock and other things
    8. Insurance, staff/customer/accident
    9. Head office functions
    10. Thieves... stealing stock/items/stuff

    As you can see it must be a nightmare running stores as the cost is just massive. Doesn't help that many store rentals (not talking about game but in general) are owned by people who don't give a crap about who's renting and just keep putting the price up... basically a monopoly...

    Running any business is expensive.

    If only CEX stocked brand new titles on day of release ...
    @artrocker Oh no.... Game are bad, but CEX is like walking into a carboot sale being held in a sewer, absolutely horrible place.

    If you want new better prices - best is online from one of many different places.

  • Here's the official, Halo lore explanation for why Cortana is naked

  • makeamazing 30/10/2015

    More than are on massive starships 500 years in the future I'd wager.
    @MrTomFTW - I'll take that wager, unless you own a delorean that is :D

    I dunno, who knows what we'll be clothed in in the the future. Every time I switch the TV on, people seem to be wearing less and less these days :D

  • makeamazing 30/10/2015

    So Cortana's male counterpart isn't nude because that's part of his personality. Convenient.
    @MrTomFTW ... how many WW2 pilots do you recall being naked?

    Of course on WW2 planes there were a lot of scantily clad women.

    I think you could assume they did it because the male demographic playing the game, but they won't probably admit that.

    But it doesn't bother me that much.

  • Microsoft readies raft of Xbox One bundles for crucial Christmas 2015

  • makeamazing 02/10/2015

    The few customers that were in there were in hysterics after seeing their pre-owned prices.
    @Blackmarsh63 Personally I am not a fan of pre-owned. As for prices, yes they are crazy, but then so is having a shop rental space and staff, business rates. To be honest I am surprised anyone can afford to own a shop these days.

    My wife used to work for Blockbuster and their rent was at least 100k and that was not for a great store... can imagine it's not worth it these days with all the internet competition.

  • makeamazing 02/10/2015

    @Blackmarsh63 And yet there are still many other ways to buy games if you don't like them.

    Personally I don't buy anything in store and usually only buy special editions from their online store....

    I'm just sick of people moaning about a business that employs lots of people that you don't need to shop at.

    The box art to the bundles is terrible, no effort has been made at all.

    You seem to think there's a set rate that everyone gets and they should just be happy with it. Not how it works.
    @TarickStonefire On the contrary I am saying that companies can offer whatever they like (within legal minimum wage laws) and people can refuse or accept. That's what a market economy is all about. One rule is good for developers, is good for all. No special cases... surely that's more sensible than the "Talent" making themselves special cases.

    But you're some guy on the net. Not wasting time explaining the far, far greyer reality of pay and residuals and why and when and so on. Your whining about all this ain't gonna change a thing, strike goes on.
    Well I guess we are all just people on the net, duh. This is a open topic... if you don't like people talking about it, move on and go do something else than moan about people saying they don't agree with it.

    Actors in films and get risiduals for their work. Video games don't.
    @DickSocrates Just because it happens in movies doesn't mean it should happen in games. I for one don't think it should happen in movies either... Just demand a fair wage from the job. I'm not (and sure no one else is) advocating people don't get paid fairly for their work... but when someone gets paid *alot* of money for voice work and you have a QA guy doing 60 hour weeks on minimum wage crunching for 6 months at a time... it seems a bit ridiculous that someone getting paid well wants more than their fair share... they want money from profits, while the people at the other end are pretty much doing the heavy lifting, get shafted.

    This contractor stuff is comeplete crap designed by companies to deny people their fare share.
    ... but I'm not a company I work for a company like most people who are also saying similar things... how can that be...based on the fact that you believe only companies would want this.

    Why do you think their contribution is being taken for granted? I mean it's like the guy from GTAV i think it was, was paid hundred plus thousand $ to do voice work. Which is way and above what most people in the games industry would ever get to see. You could say they were the "Talent" but actually the talent are the people who got the game to work.

    In the scale of game production, VO work is just one small part, why should they be the special cases.

    No need to stick up for the rights of the money people and lawyers, they're doing fabulously well already.
    I'm sticking up for common sense not your sense of sticking it to "Companies".... not all companies are big with massive pockets, rolling around in rooms full of cash.

    The way I look at it is... if you don't like the pay for a job you refuse to do the job, just like the rest of us have to do. Most of us probably don't have that luxury.

    I've never been a fan of the concept that people who are basically contractors on a project think they should have long term royalties to a products success when it's bigger than the part that they have done.

    I'm not saying that they are not talented or the work they do isn't important, but when there are people who are working on the game full time over the course of the project in a risky position of being fired if the game doesn't sell (certainly the case in the USA), or not getting any bonus's because of being 1point off a metacritic (such as Fallout New Vegas), or designers/programmers etc working tons of over time for free (and still not getting anything if the game makes money)....

    I think this isn't the key issue in game development.

  • Uncharted Nathan Drake Collection 500GB & 1TB PS4 bundles for Europe

  • makeamazing 22/09/2015

    @Pr0gen Yes but the Yen is absolutely having a shocker, so of course it's cheaper in Japan, and europe is usually more expensive.

    But my point still stands, that there is a price cut even if it's not official or just a deal. So if its not cheap enough for you, fair enough, but the price is cheaper than it was (for the moment). That was the point i was making.
