  • Don't call it DRM: what's Denuvo Anti-Tamper?

  • ronorra 19/12/2014

    People pirate because they can plain and simple
    It has nothing to do with demos or whatever so stop the self righteous act cause im not buying it
    What a load of bollocks, I have downloaded plenty in my time, especially when it involved wonky console ports (like Saints Row 2). And yet, even with my downloading I have over more then 700 games on Steam, so there goes your theory.

    You can go emo and neg me, it only proves your weak argument when the facts are in front of you.

  • Judge allows lawsuit over Killzone Shadow Fall's 1080p graphics to proceed

    Between the probable litigation from the Sony hack and this nerdy nitpicking lawsuit I'm feeling pretty sorry for Sony right now.
    Maybe for the Playstation division, but for Sony BMG Music and Sony Pictures? Karma ;)

    @Bickle2 “When people call Microsoft ‘evil’, it’s kind of an undeserved compliment. To be evil, you have to have vision, you have to have communication, execution…” . Although I have the feeling this falls on deaf ears, so I rather do something more productive then being handed this custodian muppetry time and time again. Reply +3
  • ronorra 15/12/2014

    @Bickle2 10 Years of Steam usage and never had a problem with the Steam client, something I cannot say of Uplay, Origin or GFWL. Annecdotal experience is anecdotal.

    And Microsoft a custodian for PC gaming? No offense but that starts with taking it seriously. And hearing that custodian bit is quite hilarious when Microsoft eagerly restricts games behind an OS version. Does that sound allright with you?

    PC gamers have allowed Valve, a company that refuses to even run a customer service phone line in charge of holding the industry hostage.
    The mind boggles, Valve are now the bad guys for doing what Microsoft could not or wanted not? I want some of what you are smoking.

    If Nintendo ever leaves the industry that's when I stop gaming, because I'd hate to be a cynical, jaded arsehole like the rest of you haters.
    It's incredible how zealous Nintendo fans are, up to the point that it gets unsettlingly close to a sect. Scary really...

    Sad part is, in a way those fans are Nintendos nemesis.

  • The Nintendo difference: Wii U's first two years

  • ronorra 30/11/2014

    Bit of a shallow article this after reading stuff like the interview that Myamoto gave for the Telegraph saying that "His Rivals Are Boring, Samey" (wich imo makes pretty much sense if you look at all the sequels like Assasins Creed and Call of Duty etc). Bit weird this interview in an English newspaper never got mentioned on Eurogamer, an english site. I also have doubts that it was not mentioned here to avoid flamewars, but anyway...

    Or Nintendo's problem with not getting new talent but still depending on Myamoto who is not getting any younger. Thought provoking article from Oli Welsh, props for that.

    extra power doesn't make games fun.. Just more expensive to make.
    Bull. So according to your 'theory' the best and most playable product Nintendo ever released is this:

    I beg to differ.

    As for Nintendo, I hope they wake up on time, signs don't look too good tho.

Incompetence is one thing, but flat out lying to your customers? No wonder so many AAA developers can keep screwing it up with apologists like you that keep giving them the chance. Sad times.

    At the risk of sounding cheesy, for me it really is all about the journey, not the arriving.
    Not at all, I think this is one of the biggest mistakes modern MMOs still make. It is about the journey, not the arriving at end gear grindorama.

    As for grinding, I did my fair share in Winterspring but I cannot see myself ever doing that again. Been there done that.

    @markmitt Oh do sod off with your whining and go back to your pram and your toys. I am getting terribly annoyed by console wankers who canmnot handle that their latest toy isn't top of the food chain and suddenly have a case of sand in their collective vaginas. If you canmnot handle the gfact that console gaming is budget gaming, do not come here.

  • Elite: Dangerous, David Braben and a scale model Cobra MK III

    I played it the last couple of months and it is an absolutely fantastic re-invention of Elite. It feels familiar, it plays familiar, it feels like coming home after 30 years.
    Glad to hear that, carefully positive again :) TBH the offline option never was a big thing for me, just that the timing of announcing that offline was scrapped could be a lot better. Anyhow, crossing fingers for this to be good, I need my space fix.

    Alarm bells are ringing when a developer comes so late with important information about offline. I hope to be proved wrong and that Elite Dangerous actually will live up to its legacy but so far I do not have much confidence. Reply -6

  • World of Warcraft was a defining game of its generation

  • ronorra 23/11/2014

    But nothing - in my opinion - came close to the awesomeness that was vanilla Naxxramas. We were wiping on trash mobs at first, so you can imagine our elation when we finally began downing the bosses.
    I hated the buffstacking wich ment grinding every buff under the sun (including stuff like Hakkar heart, Onyxia head etc) but damn it was a good feeling when we cleared it all and I was the muppet that got that silly orange stick . Apart from the crazy grinding that was needed back then I really look back with fond memories on the time when WOW really still was a world with a community. I don't see myself return to wow but those times I was in Azeroth were good times. Not many games that managed to entertain me for 8 years.

  • Ubisoft launches Assassin's Creed: Unity live blog as devs battle bugs

  • ronorra 13/11/2014

    Ah, a liveblog with more words from Ubi... very trustworthy, like before:

    “If we think we’ve ended up with a 70 percent Assassin’s Creed game, we’re not going to ship it,” Detoc told IGN. “That damages the brand. I’m not going to give you the names of products, because you know them as well as I do, but if you start to make games at 70 percent, even with a big brand, eventually people are going to change their mind about that brand. They won’t want it anymore. That’s what saves the recurrence. There are 30 million people or so who have been playing Grand Theft Auto. Last year, to pick a round number, we had about 10 million people playing Assassin’s Creed. When we come up with an Assassin’s Creed the next year, there’s another 10 million brand new people who might be interested in the new setting, because of the new history, or the new naval battles and the pirates. It’s a variation on gameplay from even last year.”

    “You bring something fresh, but you have to bring quality too,” he continued. “There’s a lot of people who can play your game. We have fans who come back to the franchise and we’re very thankful for them, because we think we’re giving them a good game to play, and they give back to us when they buy it. But there’s a lot more people out there who we can sell games to.”
    Times surely have changed when Activision and EA are being outcunted by Ubisoft.

    Ubisoft also had the genius idea of removing Farcry 4 from Steam. The plot thickens...

    Ubisoft's biggest three upcoming releases, F4r Cry, Assassin's Creed Unity, and The Crew have been pulled from Steam, the place where a lot of people buy and play their PC games.

    PCGamesN got this statement from Ubisoft after noticing the three had been removed from the UK Steam store: "We've been in discussions with Valve about Assassin’s Creed Unity but for the time being the game is not available via Steam in the UK. In the meantime, UK customers wishing to purchase the game digitally can do so by visiting the Uplay store, our retail partners or other digital distributors."

    The three games' pages on the North American Steam store have all been pulled as well, so it seems the three are universally off of Steam at the moment. Aside from Ubisoft's own, bad Uplay, the three are still available for purchase on other digital distribution sites, like Green Man Gaming and Amazon.
    The case of the disappearing Ubisoft titles on Steam seems to now have spread worldwide, as Far Cry 4, Assassin’s Creed: Unity and The Crew disappear in the US. There were reports yesterday that the same set of games had vanished from Steam in the UK, with Ubisoft telling PCGamesN that “UK customers wishing to purchase the game digitally can do so by visiting the Uplay store, our retail partners or other digital distributors.”

    Ubisoft’s spokesperson also claimed that the company was “in discussions” with Valve about Assassin’s Creed: Unity being on Steam.

    For the time being, neither that game nor the other big Ubisoft releases of the year (Far Cry 4, The Crew) are present on Valve’s platform. Players in other countries such as Germany and the Netherlands have been confirming that the situation is the same there too.

    Ubisoft, of course, operates its own digital platform (Uplay) on PC but has previously seemed fine with selling games on Steam and having them launch through it’s own service; in contrast to EA who haven’t sold their newer published titles (FIFA, Dragon Age and the like) on Steam for some time.

    Whether this is a move by Ubisoft to prevent Valve taking their 30% cut from major game sales (at the cost of the lost Steam sales,) or some kind of pricing dispute (Ubisoft’s digital PC titles run to a very expensive £50 in the UK, for example) is not clear.

    The only people saying "I'll wait until it comes out on PC" are trolls or haters trying to undermine XB1 exclusive games because it feeds their perception that the XB1 is a piece of crap and / or must be shat upon at every opportunity.

    Ads already leaked that mention pc release, so while you throw a tantrum I will just wait on the definitive 60 frames per second version. 30 frames per second actiongames are the equivalernt of a leaked camversion of a movie... sure you can view it, but it is very far from the optimal version. Oh and practice what you preach, have a cuppa o' STFU yourself.

    backlash against supposed corruption after a man falsely accused his developer ex-girlfriend of sleeping with a journalist for positive coverage (it's worth noting that the journalist in question never covered her work once they began a relationship).
    Erm no. The false accusation was that the positive coverage was a review wich wasn't. But there has been a positive article about the game in question.

    Call me cynic, but I think the gaming press has a foul role in all this with constant misinterpreting what was the cause that sparked all this. And all this #gamergate bullshit has not changed the feeling that journalistic integrity is incredibly rare in the ga\ming scene.

    Oh and just for the record (sad that I have to clarify this), people that think it is ok to threaten/repress/underpay/degrade/harass/etc women because they are women are sad pieces of crotch fungus.

    This interview with Brad Wardell shows another light on all this, worthy of a read.

    No one should be getting death threats. But to blame them on a particular ideology is irresponsible.
