  • Griefers or saviours? The Elite Dangerous players causing a rift in space

  • suicida 01/04/2016

    Good writeup. I've been playing ED since the beginning of January so followed this whole thing 'live' so to speak.

    Frontier's handling of this whole situation has been hilariously inept. The worst moment was the "Assholes for Assholes" "charity" event. Here is an event with the stated intention of killing new players in the starter system to which FD gave their blessing to be advertised in the games official forums. I can't recall any developer before not only condoning this kind of behaviour (ganking new players by squads of end-game PvP equipped players) but also allowing this to be publicised on the game's official site!

    It's ok though, they gave a pound to charity for each one they killed. A pound.

    There's been a study (which Braben himself quoted in the Lave Radio podcast) that found something like each instance of griefing costs developers £50 in lost revenue from new players. Is this kind of publicity worth it, Frontier?

  • Destiny's next event is... not what players expected

  • suicida 22/01/2016

    @Sendlinger "My year long Destiny journey - Obsession - apathy - disdain."

    I'm EXACTLY the same. At the start of 2015 I was obsessed with Destiny, played nearly 1800 hours in the end. Stopped playing when Fallout 4 came out. Can't stand the fucking game now.

    I agree with the others that have already said about Deej's evasive smarmy corporate speak in the weekly updates, really grinds my gears.

  • Destiny bringing forward more Year One exotics

  • suicida 23/11/2015

    1800+ hours, all 3 characters at 308, 309, and 312 light, and I just can't be bothered any more. Haven't touched Destiny since Fallout 4 came out, and I can't see some reissued guns I already have being enough to tempt me back.

    The spell has been broken. It was a fun ride but I think I'm done with Destiny for quite a while.

  • From today, you can do the Carlton dance in Destiny

  • suicida 13/10/2015

    @tomphillipsEG Iron Banner was just an example. I'm sure the live team will be doing all sorts of stuff to keep the game interesting in between the big expansions. I'm also sure we'll still have to pay for those big expansions... Not that I'm complaining, Destiny is f--king awesome. Reply -2

  • suicida 13/10/2015

    @tomphillipsEG "Well they've already said they're not going to charge for any expansion content over the rest of the year so..."

    Got a link for where they said that? From what I have read the money from these microtransactions will fund the "live team" at Bungie who look after world events (Iron Banner and the new Black Spindle daily missions etc)

    I haven't read anything official from Bungie where they say there will be no more paid DLC. I assume there will still be expansions coming out that you will have to pay for, these aren't made by the Live Team.

    "Our plan is to use these new items to bolster the service provided by our live team for another full year, as they grow and create more robust and engaging events that we’ll announce later this year. It has been, and continues to be, our goal to deliver updates to the game. Going forward, our live team is also looking to grow beyond vital updates and improvements to focus on world events, experiences, and feature requests."

    Bungie haven't said anything more than that from what I can find. Kotaku posted speculation that this meant no more paid DLC expansions and it seems that this has now been accepted as fact by the rest of the internet.

  • suicida 02/07/2015

    I couldn't give a fuck what anyone else thinks I'll be buying this. I've played Destiny more than any other game ever and £40 for more content is nothing. "Vote with your wallet" indeed. I'll be voting with mine and getting this. Up yours haters. Reply -8
  • Destiny: The Taken King director defends £40 expansion price tag

  • suicida 23/06/2015

    I've been playing Destiny since release, almost daily. I fucking love it. The EG clan on is very active so I always have loads of people to play with. Have clocked up over 1k hours spread over 3 characters, and still not bored yet. the last time I dropped money on this game was £35 on the season pass last September.

    Another £40 a year later doesn't seem like much to me, it's my choice whether I think TTK is worth the money and FOR ME it definitely is.

  • suicida 22/06/2015

    Already preordered this. £40 is fuck all really and barely gets you 2 rounds of drinks in the pub these days. Still playing Destiny most nights of the week with the rest of the Eurogamer clan so this is totally worth it for me.

    The stuff they've shown so far looks really cool IMO and Destiny is certainly heading in the right direction in terms of listening to fan complaints (not having to wear the same gear as everyone else to be max level etc)

    [edit] lol, as I suspected anyone who disagrees with the EG hive mind and actually enjoys playing Destiny gets negged to oblivion. Good work.

  • 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! Reply +2

  • 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. Reply +6

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. Reply 0
  • Zynga selling sponsored Draw Something terms

    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...

    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.

    The Galaxy Nexus is the best phone I've ever owned.

    @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.

  • 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.

    "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.

  • 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?

    Adjective: Lasting only for a short time; impermanent.

    @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...

    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.
