    Try Timeriffic I've been using it on my Android phones for years. Set your phone to automatically mute and turn vibration off at a certain time every night during the week

  • Games of the Generation: Dark Souls

  • suicida 31/10/2013

    Not just one of the games of this generation, but the best game of all time IMO. I love the strange melancholic atmosphere that most areas of the game have. A hint of sadness. A dying world trapped in the past.

    This game also has the best online community of any game I've ever played. The multiplayer mechanics reinforce the feeling of a shared experience.

    I have a big "Welcome to Lordran" framed Solaire print on the wall in my living room. Praise the sun!

  • Square Enix life president Ian Livingstone exits company

    Legend. I've spent rather a lot of time over the years playing with products he's had a hand in - FF books, tabletop RPGs, Warhammer, videogames. I feel like I owe him a pint just to say thanks :) Reply +10

  • Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut info leaks - report

  • suicida 11/06/2012

    For me, it wasn't that I found the ending unsatisfactory and that I didn't get to find out what happened to this race of aliens or that race of aliens after the destruction if the mass relays, it was that the whole reason given by magic space child for the reapers to be doing what they were doing made absolutely no sense at all and contradicts several things established in earlier games and stated by Saren etc.

    Synthetics will always war with organics so to stop it the reapers (also a race of synthetics) were created to wipe out all organic life? Eh?

    For a generally well written (I thought) series the last fifteen minutes seemed to me like they were written by a twelve year old for an English lesson. Terrible terrible writing.

    This article explains it better than I can. I don't think an extended cut scene can make it better.

  • UK broadband is among the slowest in Europe - report

    @Nikator

    I had to cancel my Virgin Media fibre optic broadband for exactly the same reason. I often got 0.01mb.

    This was due to an ongoing issue that they kept pushing the fix date back for every 2 months.

    It was affecting everyone in my area, and no, they weren't warning new subscribers about it when they signed up. Absolute shysters. To my knowledge, they spent over 6 months signing up new customers to a service they not only knew full well they couldn't provide, but didn't even know when they would be able to provide.

    It was brilliant, on the rare occasions it worked. The rest of the time, think mid 90s AOL dial up.


    This is my current experience of Virgin Media in Reading and it has been going on for months. Latest "fix" date is May 16th but I'll believe it when I see it. They are massively over subscribed in this area yet still advertise for more customers. My trouble is I don't even have a BT line in my flat and it will cost 130+ just to get one put in.

    I hate Virgin Media with every fibre of my being.

  • Zynga selling sponsored Draw Something terms

  • suicida 04/05/2012

    Like someone above me said, this is better than banner ads. I don't mind drawing brands in this game, but if they stick banner ads in my paid-for ad free version of the game I'll be uninstalling.

    I had to draw the word 'whopper' the other day for someone and drew a burger. I did wonder at the time if they'd done a deal with Burger King...

  • Motorola Xoom 2 Tablet Reviews

  • suicida 13/02/2012

    You can get an original 32gb wifi Xoom for 250 now from Carphone Warehouse. As the hardware on the wifi only model is identical all over the world you can flash it with the US firmware and upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich straight away. This is the 'Nexus' class of the OS and has no crappy manufacturer skin either. I'm posting from mine now and it's awesome.

    All the accessories are massively reduced now too, I picked up the official dock for 17 the other day. I really can't imagine getting a better tablet for the money.

  • Best Android Gaming Smartphones

  • suicida 17/01/2012

    The Galaxy Nexus is the best phone I've ever owned. I love the huge screen and every other phone seems tiny now (apart from the Galaxy Note of course)

    Absolutely great for games as well, GTA runs really well but the controls let it down as they are far too fiddly. Space Invaders Infinity Gene is amazing.

  • What Went Wrong With The 360 Dashboard?

  • suicida 07/01/2012

    @nickthegun: totally agree, the new dashboard is a massive step backwards. I haven't bought a single piece of content since it came out because browsing the market is now such a chore.

    All that wasted space around the edge of the screen makes me cringe, and what space is used is full of ads now. What a mess.

  • Telling Tales: Skyrim and Dark Souls

  • suicida 08/12/2011

    I loved Dark Souls, played for 120+ hours, but I honestly couldn't tell you what the story was about. Somethihng about fire, and you had to ring some bells and capture 4 lots of boss souls to put in some dish because a giant talking snake said so. Didn't make much sense to me.

    The combat was fucking amazing though. Give me Skyrim's world with Dark Souls combat and progression system and it would probably be the best game ever.

  • Digital Foundry vs. PS3 Skyrim Lag

  • suicida 03/12/2011

    "But we do have to wonder how 360 owners with a 65 hour-plus save are coping, and whether the same issue manifests for them - just further along in the gameplay. If any 360 owner has a similarly mammoth save, please get in touch."

    168 hours in on 360, save file is 13mb, no issues.

    I had no idea the PS3 version was that bad. Feel sorry for people that only have one system. If it was me I'd be taking the game back and demanding a refund.

  • Game of the Week: Skyrim

  • suicida 12/11/2011

    If Skyrim had Dark Souls' combat system it would be the perfect videogame and I would never leave the house again. The slightly shonky combat is it's only flaw IMO. It's like one of those Persian rugs that have a deliberate mistake so as not to offend the gods or something... Reply +13

  • Dark Souls worldwide sales: 1.5 million shipped

  • suicida 03/11/2011

    "@Nevflinn " In Dark Souls, at New Londo Ruins, there are ghosts that you can only harm after consuming a "Transient Curse" item. It lasts only for a limited time, and once it's gone, you can't attack or block against their attacks. While I was fighting at least five of them at once, the time expired, and I was just confused as to why I couldn't block any more. That death didn't feel like something I deserved: it felt like something I couldn't have known or prepared for. That's not a challenge.

    What would have made it fair? If, in the item description that players can read if they choose, it said something like "Be cautious still, for this curse does not last forever." That would have made such a difference. I could have not run into any groups of the ghosts so quickly if I knew time was running short, I'd have measured the time and set my stopwatch to sound when time was nearly up if I had to - but at least I'd have control over something again.
    "

    LOL You do know what "transient" means, yes?

    transient
    Adjective: Lasting only for a short time; impermanent.

    120 hours and still not finished my first playthrough, am pretty near the end though I think. Probably gonna start a new character straight away and play until Skyrim comes out.

    My personal GOTY easily, Skyrim has it's work cut out to be better than Dark Souls. Gonna pick up Demons Souls to play in the new year

    Edited forum posts don't show up in the Android app made by Freakybun, apparently the API just sends a blank post to the app. It's really annoying as the forum is the only bit still working after the site update.

    I assume the imminent fix for the iPhone app will fix the Android one also?

  • Molyneux hasn't seen new Syndicate

    @Marblepuke "I'm with you on this. Could it be that the guys at Starbreeze just haven't really played anything other than FPS games in their lives and would not know to make any other kind of game properly? I mean they did do that 3rd person crusader game once for example which was shit.."



    The 3rd person game Starbreeze did was called Enclave and was one of my favourite games on the original Xbox. It had a separate good and evil campaign. Bloody difficult in places. Actually thinking about it, Dark Souls reminds me a little of it. I really wish it was backwards compatible on the 360...

  • Brink dev: games market is top heavy

  • suicida 14/05/2011

    A multiplayer only shooter with 8 maps for 40? No chance. Halo Reach had a big SP campaign, co-op, Firefight, AND multiplayer (with more than 8 maps) for the same price at launch, much less now.



    As others have said, if Brink was 20-30 then it might have found an audience. It's like Shadowrun all over again.
