  • Microsoft offers free 12-month EA Access subscriptions

    Doesn't say much for EA access, Sony said no, and MS are literally throwing them at people.....I have never experienced EA access so it might be ok, its just that I have no desire to try it. Reply -3

  • The Witcher 3 is a masterpiece of world-building

  • romelpotter 13/05/2015

    @IronGiant Why but the Internet; where else??? Why don't you look for yourself instead of posting mindless critique of other peoples posts.

    Edit: oh of course, then there is the Eurogamer article itself. Posting stills taken from 2013 and a vid from current builds of the game. It is itself adding to the confusion and lends itself (Eurogamer) open to bait and switch accusations; seeing as the article is released so close to the game's release date!

    @Farzlepot You mis understand me mate, perhaps I could have been clearer. I wasnt trying to make this a PC vs Console thing. My post was regarding how MS and (probably) Sony are concerned enough about the lack of their own consoles performance to spend money making devs and publishers make games shitter. When the specs of the console were released, they used poor quality graphics cards in their designs. Reply -1
  • romelpotter 13/05/2015

    I think the real issue here is not the graphical downgrade, its the fact that (from what I can gather) both M$ and $ony pay the devs to make sure the PC version of the game is not massively different to the Console versions.

    When they introduced the specs of the GPU's in the current consoles, they were mid to low range cards and I for one was shocked at the lack of ambition shown by the manufactures. Now we see the result of their cheapness, PC versions are head and shoulders above what the consoles can even hope to achieve.

    So to stop consumers thinking, "hang on, this looks shit on console, the PC version is so much better; I think I am getting a new PC rather than a (insert console of choice).

    And that FUCKING sucks!

  • Digital Foundry: Hands-on with PlayStation Now

  • romelpotter 04/05/2015

    @electrolite I see your point however the price & service Sony is delivering is in no way representative to what they could be aiming for which is to Stream PS 6 games. By charging now they are almost shooting themselves in their foot! Reply 0
  • romelpotter 04/05/2015

    IMO, Sony should be using this as a test bed for the technology being used as part of the Playstation 6 (or whatever), and as such they should be giving it away for nowt. The idea that people are willing to pay for old games, especially when there are so many PS3's in the Marketplace already is frankly, silly.

    Factor that with latency and piss poor quality (like faded & fuzzy graphics) then I just don't see how Sony can expect this to work.

  • Huge Dota 2 update adds nod to Terry Pratchett

  • romelpotter 28/04/2015

    Interesting patch notes, I had a quick looksee and am a bit disappointed to see that Sniper has been nerfed. I have just started to learn a bit about the game and have been hitting up lots of bot matches, just started to feel like I was finding my feet a bit (using Sniper) and learning the playstyle of DOTA and MOBOs in general.

    Maybe I will use this as an opportunity to learn another char. *shrugs*

    If anyone has suggestions on good chars to play for beginners, I am mostly winning bot matches on Hard diff settings at the moment, with the odd PUB game thrown in to "keep my hand in" as I get better.

  • Steam Workshop now allows modders to sell their work

  • romelpotter 23/04/2015

    I think this is a fucking joke!!! I don't mind at all supporting mod makers, but if they are only getting 25% then how is that supporting a mod maker when I can donate on the Nexus website and they get it all, 100%???

    Also, can anyone confirm if they are going to RETRO-INVOICE people? I had almost 30 mods through the Workshop and there is no way on gods green earth that I am going to give Valve ANY money for this idea, what so ever!

    I have removed all of the workshop items I had; fuck it, its easily done. I will switch to only getting the Nexus mods from now on.

    Good luck Valve you greedy, money grabbing, new revenue stream chasing bastards!!!

  • Face-Off: Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin

  • romelpotter 10/04/2015

    @Timmy_Toldrum You are quite right and Namco Bandi will have their part in the pricing. Fromsoft however more than understood the hype and LOVE that surrounded the Souls games, they made the choice to move there A team to BB and no doubt take Sony's money in the process. That was their desicion to make. My big bugbear is that Da2 just isnt in the same league as Das or DeS, why they spent so much time, effort and money on it, is beyond me. Just a waste! Reply -1
  • romelpotter 09/04/2015

    I am really angry about the sales and marketing tatics used by Fromsoft (in the head) with this. I can see fuck all difference in those screen shot comparisons; fuck all.

    DLC content aside, this should be a free update. I ask myself the question that if I had known there would be a release in the future of a dx 11 version of the game, would I have bought the dx 9 version?

    No, absolutely not, I would have waited. Do I feel cheated? Yes. Do I feel let down? Yes. I. Do.

    What people have to understand is that Fromsoft released Demon's Souls in Japan and peeps had to import it into the UK. And we did, in droves. When Fromsoft released Dark Souls they had a rep as a developer that was in the same Ballpark as CD Project Red (certainly in my opinion), I held them in high esteem for not cow tailing to the average or mobile markets, and retaining their Mantra regarding the difficulty of their games.

    Looking forward as I was to DaS 2, we find out that its being developed by a B team and the game when it came out was marred by the rushed textures and cruddy graphics built in haste for the lowest common denominator. But....that was DaS 2 and I bought it.

    If From had said that it was planning to redo a lot of the stuff, textures yada yada and make a dx 11 version but your gonna have to wait a year for release; I would have waited. Absolutely.

    The fact is that From fucked up mightily in my opinion and each thing they bring out associated with DaS2 has made the matter worse for me (DLC aside which by many accounts is very good although I have not played it as I don't support Season Passes....Doh).

    The whole fracas has put me off From Software. Please just stop it with the PR rubbish and do what you do best, using your A team to make games with.

  • Does Scholar of the First Sin make Dark Souls 2 worth returning to?

  • romelpotter 08/04/2015

    This is my whole bugbear regarding DaS2, solo and its hard, hard enough to warrant trying the MP where upon in a group you just breeze through the content.

    Its just not "Challenging" you dont ever "feel" like you can beat that boss on your own its just you being shit, it feels that it is simply based upon numbers and that the more of you there is, the quicker the numbers topple.

    It is that specific point that for me separates it from the much better DeS and DaS.

  • Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin's PC upgrade priced

  • romelpotter 04/04/2015

    @GreyBeard DLC aside, what else justifies the extra money? The well documented redux of graphical quality from what was the E3 showtel, by their own admission they developed on PC and had to downgrade the graphics to run on last gen consoles however didnt fookin let the PC run with the graphics it could have done. Nooo they are charging again for it! Now I believe your trolling so I am not going to say any more! No one could be so plastic that they couldnt see the download for the dvd case! Reply 0
  • romelpotter 02/04/2015

    @GreyBeard I dont think anyone actually believes that the update is Valueless. I do personally think however that to charge people again for something that should have been in the original game is shoddy practice and not one that I will support. I own DeS, DaS and DaS2 but I didnt buy the Season Pass or the DLC and I wont buy this for exactly the same reasons. It has nothing to do with being cheap asshats and I find that insulting. Reply +1

  • romelpotter 30/03/2015

    This is a bad move IMHO, I can not think of anyone who would support separating out dx 9 and 11, that's just never going to work. And charging those with the DLC 14 for what exactly??

    I dont have the DLC and I wont be getting either the dx9 or 11 versions of Dark Souls 2. What a shame that this has to happen with one of the best series of games ever.

    A Dark day indeed!

    Edit:

    Just realised I can upgrade my non DLC version for 20. Considering that the DLC Season Pass was 19 this seems like a good deal. Not sure I would feel the same if I had the season pass though, that makes it 13 more expensive if you bought the season pass!

  • Watch someone complete Bloodborne in 40 minutes

  • romelpotter 31/03/2015

    I have no problem that the player is using glitches per say.....however don't call it a speed run, coz it aint.

    Take a look at Silverstone racing circuit, there is the F1 track but also there are additional tracks intertwined that make up linking roads within the circuit limits.

    If Hamilton suddenly pulled a sudden righty and missed out half the track before nipping back to take first from Rosberg then I am sure the FIA would disqualify him!

    Its a lame comparison I know but hey, deal with it :)

  • MSI Titan GT80 Titan SLI review

  • romelpotter 29/03/2015

    I have an Alienware M18 and I love it. Its the lowest spec available but still gives me above average fps at medium to high settings on games I play. Star Citizen I run at 720p lol but the rest are fine. Its got MXM GPU's (GTX 765m SLI) and the I74700MQ CPU.

    So given that Alienware are moving to an intergraited CPU and GPU in future lappys, and that they are killing off the 18.2 inch M18, this article makes me happy that there are some people out there that are willing to create these Desktop replacement laptops.

    By the way I use mine for mobile Audio Recording.

  • H1Z1 sells over 1m Early Access copies in two months

  • romelpotter 24/03/2015

    I dont own the game, I was interested until I found out the price we were being asked to pay to bugtest their game. The news that they are further monetising H1Z1 is exceptionally bad news for the gaming industry, if people are taking this shit without exception I believe that like DLC et al, it will saturate the industry and become standard practice.

    It is fucking scandalous what they are trying to do, one million people is quite a high number and this saddens me greatly. For the love of gamers everywhere, WE all need to reject this shit and protect ourselves!

  • Is Bloodborne the best game ever, or just the second best?

  • romelpotter 24/03/2015

    I love this: "Which leads to the overwhelming question: is Bloodborne better than Dark Souls? I don't know, and anyone who says they do is a fool."

    If its too close to call, I dont care if its better than Dark Souls, its going to be a Brilliant game and thats good enough for me.

    If over the months, it like a fine cheese, gets better over time then were all the better for it.

    @The_shlaaaag_returns Good Design!!!! Utter rubbish. The early version looks a lot better to me, more functionality, more interactive and way cooler. Who wants a static 2d image when you can have a 3d with a "you are here" point on it? Reply 0
  • romelpotter 05/03/2015

    Lets pontificate about the whole aspect of releasing ED on a Console:

    Is this why ED changed some aspects during development? Effectivly dumbing down of some parts of the game? For example:

    This early development map of a Local System




    To this Local System map which was live when I last played the game



    Which one looks cooler?

  • Elite: Deadly trademark sets tongues wagging

  • romelpotter 23/02/2015

    I am just as hopeful as the next person when it comes to Elite D. I honestly believe this will be the Console Version of Elite D, probably to prevent those with the PC version of Elite D obtaining free updates for life with the Console version as well as the PC version.

    Its nothing more than that! But until we get conformation from Braben, we can speculate all we want.

    And come on now, if your saying that Braben hasn't got form then your either lying, working for him or you have been sat in a small room with only a cat for company for the last 6 months. The whole online only fiasco was horrid and uncomfortable to be a part of. He really really didn't want to give back any money!

    Cynical me, the first thought that entered my head was that this is a move to make money; more money.

    During the Kickstarter campaign, I think if you backed the 100 tear and over you got a lifetime of free updates for E:Dangerous. I wonder if Frontier plan to release updates for Elite Dangerous under this new product called Elite Deadly therefore bypassing the lifetime of free updates for those who backed at the 100+ tier???

    I may be well off, and I hope I am, Braben has form on this, just ask Ian Bell.

  • Redundancies at Elite: Dangerous dev Frontier

  • romelpotter 26/01/2015

    @A_FAN Yea no doubt, it just seems that way to me. Partly I guess because I feel as a backer I felt pleased that I helped create jobs. I guess its natural to feel the opposite when redundancies happen, despite how silly it is. My thoughts are with those that are affected by this.

    But Cheaper Coffee and Job Redundancies are not the same thing at all, not even close!


    Worryingly for Elite, I think that there is still a long way to go in development terms. Its a very nice game but there is only so long you can do the same thing over and over before it becomes a chore. The game needs some real meat added to it.
