  • The Witcher 3's first-person mod looks like a fantastic reason to revisit the Northern Kingdoms

  • makeamazing 22/07/2016

    This is setting off my vertigo.... gah :D

    Game does look glorious though, I really should try and get back to playing it.

  • The Walking Dead's third season screens shows off Telltale's improved engine

  • makeamazing 22/07/2016

    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.

    @robbiejc85 That's really cool, I recommend the rezzed area, its a great area to jump on and play things, without the hassle of massive queues. Reply 0

    @arcam No Arcam, it was at EGX last year, my wife got to play Kitchen and loved it...(so many jokes I could make about that) I think its been at events since maybe last March?

    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.

    Charge $1000 to get a release and pay it back to the developer as part of the 30% before charging them. that way you'll prevent much of the crap appearing. Reply 0

    @ciaranhillock

    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.

    @ciaranhillock Well how old are you then..no superiority complex, just a thing called maturity.

    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.

    I mean seriously... "Simply not caring is the cancer of the industry"... I mean LOL... did you really say and believe that....

    @ciaranhillock

    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.
    I mean seriously... go take a cold bath or something.... this has to be the most stupid comment I've read in a long time.

    @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.

  • makeamazing 12/06/2016

    @SeanBeansGravyBoat or 720p depending on the game?

    Joking aside, I like the look of it, and was at some point going to buy an XBO, but was hoping the slim would come along...because the XBO is a massive box. Wonder what the price will be, don't want to pay too much as its going to be a 2nd console thats only used for 2 or 3 games.

    Interesting stuff. Been out of the PC gaming card business for a while, but thinking about buying a 1070 or 1080.

    What is confusing is the i7 bit is the motherboard processor right, so what would the performance of the card be without OC that? I've never OC anything and am unlikely to, so does this have an impact or am I getting the wrong end of the stick?

    Seems like a missed opportunity, more of a jokey article rather than perhaps looking at politics in games. What I would have preferred would have been an article talking about games that use politics or people power in their games.

    Sim City, Tropico, Democracy... delving into them and seeing how accurate they are with todays politics would have been a far more interesting article me thinks.

  • Speedrunner sets new world record for Doom... 3?!

    Whats with some people moaning about articles about games that have just released (or associated with games just come out)... what do people expect them to do, ignore the fact that games are out.

    BUT...The only negative about websites is when they decide to start talking about easter eggs, storylines etc before the rest of us have had a chance to play it in any detail (and some sites have ruined that on twitter etc by posting the actual easter eggs/story elements - I want to find this stuff myself after paying Ł40 for a game, not be ruined by the first website that thinks they can get more clicks through posting it).

  • Combat fatigues: How Uncharted is a walking simulator in action game's clothing

  • makeamazing 13/05/2016

    Problem with the term "walking simulator" is it tends to be an insult wielded by small-minded gate-keeping asshats who want to be arbiters of what is and isn't a game.
    @MrTomFTW I agree, its also the same problem I have with people who call games "Quick Time Events Simulators". Heavy Rain and Until Dawn being two excellent games that were made to look poor by some elements using a term widely used as a negative.

  • makeamazing 13/05/2016

    @XBgamer I find it strange that it can be better than the other three games (according to the review), but it didn't get essential.

    I found the first chapter (rope swings) to be very clunky, but it pushes on wonderfully after that, and its just a fantastic game. I cant see how it cannot be essential. Its the last in the series, its a well loved, well liked franchise, its well made and very well written....

    For anyone who likes uncharted or wants a story led action adventure game with puzzles and great acting, it is an essential purchase. Its difficult to argue with that imho.

    This looks amazing, and its been a long time since I've really been that bothered with card technology, but i'm starting to feel the itch again.

    But with this kind of performance, and the AMD ones on the horizon, with low power consumption and more importantly more respectable prices, its no surprise that sony wants/needs to do a 4.5, tech is starting to move at such a pace that it has to try and at least keep up with some pace.

  • Digital Foundry: Hands-on with Mirror's Edge Catalyst

  • makeamazing 01/05/2016

    @markyidoeverett Making games is far from easy, and being devs are far from lazy (in fact the amount of crunch (overtime) is usually a lot).

    This is why Sony have decided to go with a PS4k, and it seems sensible to me that a better console with better performance is what everyone is clamouring for.

    What is surprising is how Phil denies doing this is a good idea when developers are struggling to get past 720p on the XBO. The XBO is definitely in need of a 1.5 upgrade.
