  • Xbox One vs PlayStation 4: Year One

  • makeamazing 21/12/2014

    Sick and tired of this whole "Next gen gameplay"... it's like game reviewers/journalists are wanting to be game designers rather than just play/review games.

    Firstly what is next gen gamplay... would love them to answer that, Games just need better designing, not anything revolutionary. For example, AC Unity, ignoring all its technical issues (which surprisingly some reviews didnt seem to find)... the ability to open chests only after playing an online app, absolutely stupid decision.. Gaming 101, you don't take the player out of the game to do something with the game.

    One of the best three games this year was criticised for having old school gameplay mechanics, and it was an awesome game... Wolfenstein. So for me, I don't care if its old school, last gen, is the game fun to play... if yes then why does it matter.

    So please stop criticising games for not being "Next gen gameplay" unless you can absolutely say what that gameplay is... and just bloody enjoy the games and review them as such.

  • New Steam controller design leaked

  • makeamazing 17/12/2014

    I just don't understand the need to create a poor mans controller, when they could just make sure their steam boxes (or whatever their reason for doing this)...supports the DS4 or XBO controller.

    The DS4 is a great controller and why they need to remake the wheel and make a controller that is bound to be much much worse... don't see the point.

    Basically the point i am making is why waste all those resources and cash on a device that is not going to be upto scratch with the competition, for a need that just isn't there.

  • Ubisoft delays Assassin's Creed: Unity's next major patch

  • makeamazing 16/12/2014

    Yeah very confusing, how can you suddenly refurbish paris when you said yesterday you delayed it... what the hell is going on with Ubisoft, such poor communication.

    You cannot suddenly put in a patch and get it released, so they already knew this was coming out... confusing.

  • Microsoft's game streaming tech codenamed Arcadia, new report claims

  • makeamazing 16/12/2014

    @Sharzam It is a surprise that they don't already have it, but i think that's the general issue with MS, normally they are a follower and not an innovator. What with their massive investment in Azure, it would have seemed a small leap to go from that to streaming services - and ironically streaming TV/games. Reply +2

    I like the song (but then i like McCartney anyway)... the video is a bit trash. Would have been better to use the intro segment, much better quality. Reply 0

  • Actor in Donkey Kong costume suffers heart injury, sues Nintendo

    @protowizard Yes but it doesn't take a wizard, doctor or lawyer to just use google and find out about the condition, which is quite rare and very unlikely caused by dressing up in a monkey suit.

    Though it's quite a serious condition...so he is lucky to be alive.

    @LiamK - well it may be cynical, but considering this is in the USA where people have a habit of doing this kind of thing, I don't think anyone would be surprised if that was the case.

    Edit - you can neg me all you like, but if people are telling me there isn't that type of culture in the USA then they are seriously deluded.

  • Digital Foundry vs Far Cry 4

  • makeamazing 15/11/2014

    Really looking forward to playing a FarCry game again, and that Frame Rate looks really solid with so much going on, so thats great to see. I think this will replace my current play through of Unity.

    I think we've all been a bit burned by Ubisoft of late, and AC is especially bad. It's really a product that needed another 6-12 months in the oven as far as i can see... shame the reviews didn't pick up on it having "Many issues"... it's broken in so many ways, and that damn pop-in is just awful. At least Eurogamer gave it an accurate score. I mean I am really loving the characters/setting etc in AC, but so many things are wrong with the game... :(

    So hopefully FC4 will be an interesting game to play and doesn't have any of that dodgy log online to unlock crap stuff thats in AC!

  • Xbox One has sold in almost 10m units to retailers

  • makeamazing 12/11/2014

    They announced the price cut a couple of weeks before November, so I would have expected the sales to have bombed in the week before... so yeah of course sales have tripled...but i do expect it to be doing a lot better in the USA than it was the AC bundle is doing gangbusters on Amazon.

    I guess we can assume that Sony won October NPD which will be mentioned tomorrow night. It's usual form to mention a positive when you know something negative is going to happen, they did this last time with a "Doubled the sales".

    Still surprised that Sony have been pretty quiet and not tried to react to the massive XBO price cut (in some stores they are going to be selling it for $70 off). I mean why haven't they sorted out the GTA bundle in the USA yet... make that $350 with the game, and there would be no stopping it.

  • Performance Analysis: Assassin's Creed Unity

  • makeamazing 11/11/2014

    What an absolute mess... how can the PS4 version run worse than the XBO version, that means they have done a total hatchet job on the PS4 version.

    The game should have been delayed - by the looks of things another 6 months. Absolutely shocking.

  • Star Wars: X-Wing and Tie Fighter re-releasing on PC

  • makeamazing 28/10/2014

    I've been bemoaning the fact that recently GOG had become just another Steam/indie sales system and they had been forgetting their roots somewhat, so really glad to see them crack out some awesome classics and that more from LucasArts are coming. All is forgiven GOG (well except the state of my bank account after buying them all).

    Fantastic news indeed :)

  • Video: Karma, rhinos and wrestling bears - let's talk Far Cry 4

  • makeamazing 21/10/2014

    @FMV-GAMER Well in the video it has an X button, so it's PS3 or PS4, but it looks too pixalated to tell what platform. So I wonder if the capture was a bit dodgy or if it was indeed the PS4 version, that would be disappointing. Reply 0
  • makeamazing 20/10/2014

    Explain Far Cry 1 + 2 then? Both different to each other and 3..
    @jabberwocky - Well FarCry 1 was made by a different developer and was crap after the aliens arrived.. it was a fun game, but it was no FC3.

    FC2... idea was much the same as FC3, but the gameplay left ALOT to be desired. Especially the re-spawning roadblocks.

    So what I am saying is the gameplay for FC3 was amazing, why change it into something else which may not work (like FC2/FC1).

  • makeamazing 20/10/2014

    I know there are a lot of elements that are the same as FC3, but what do people expect, the whole game ripped apart and made different? The whole point is that it's a Farcry game...

    To someone who loved FC3, i think it looks awesome. More animals, more ways to travel, more ways to kill, story splits and a omnicopter... if you don't like that, you are dead inside :D

  • No DLC for Forza Horizon 2 on Xbox 360

  • makeamazing 08/10/2014

    Hasnt Blizzard also said they will not be supporting Diablo after the one patch on PS3/XB360... seems to me that they are being a bit hardcore on last gen. I think anyone buying last gen games needs to take this into account now, as i think it will become the norm. Reply +1

    @dogmanstaruk The next big multi format game will be The Evil Within. It should be closer considering both versions are 1080p native.
    Played The Evil Within on XBO at EGX and to be fair, it looked a right old mess (and I am not saying it's because of the XBO)... but it's one to certainly wait for reviews... looked like a last gen game :(

  • makeamazing 04/10/2014

    @MrTomFTW - The last gen versions definitely do not have the nemesis system.
    Wow really... for me that is what makes this game really interesting. Assuming I am thinking correctly what the Nemesis system is :)

    Last night I killed a low level guy, and then was killed by some other character and he got promoted into the position that I had made open. It's an awesome feature and if its missing, would be a massive loss for the PS3/Xb360 versions.

    Are you guys going to do a different review for those versions?

  • Far Cry 4 trailer explains kidnapping etiquette, according to Pagan Min

  • makeamazing 27/09/2014

    @kafiota Played Aliens, The Evil Within, Dying light..some others.

    Aliens and Evil within were disappointing. The Evil within was like a 360/ps3 game, very poor controls and camera work.

    Aliens, was only a time trial mode, but I thought the alien was quite poor in it's movement, and it felt like it was staged (i.e the alien will just appear randomly to make you have to suddenly sneak/hide) rather than having a reason to be near you.

    Dying light wasn't bad (a bit clunky) but graphically was a bit of a let down. But I'm not sure if this was an old demo or not. They were not wanting people to take photo's of even the stand... so I guess they were worried about that.

    @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 :)

    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...

    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.

    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.
