  • Spec Analysis: Xbox Project Scorpio

  • syphaa 14/06/2016

    Say hello to another unstable Xbox hardware release. The 360 cost Microsoft millions in warranty due to the triple red light hardware failure and when you're pushing hardware to exceptional levels like they are promising they better have the architecture and the cooling spot on considering most users don't have their hardware in a cool environment. Good to see some competition though, keeps things moving forward. Reply -21
  • Star Wars Battlefront community suspects Greedo and Nien Nunb are new Hero/Villain

  • syphaa 26/02/2016

    All these comments and not one mention of 'Outer Rim' come on EG community we can do better than this. (I won't be picking this up, for me the depth of content in Battlefront was too shallow to really feel it had variety and I found it repetitive quite quickly which was a shame as now i've been turned off by it) Reply 0
  • Watch: The Division's loot is cool and boring all at once

  • syphaa 23/02/2016

    I think as a few have pointed out, the level cap in the beta doesn't show us much about what will be available at the higher levels. Some of the Dark Zone loot/purchasable items from the vendor in the Dark Zone at level 10 started to have bigger increases in health regen, damage stats, faster reload...just better traits in general.

    I would imagine as we rank up to say 20/30 we will be seeing weapons with +20% traits.

    Personally I really really enjoyed The Division, it's the best MP experience i've had for a long time with a group of friends, an actual need for co-operative team play and smart tactics, but I can see the point of this article, finding a black beanie as apposed to a brown one I already own can be a bit dry.

  • The Division beta PC players are giving themselves godlike powers

  • syphaa 01/02/2016

    Erm, surely this is just another reason for AAA titles to go through the Beta programme, it's not just in-game bugs/glitches etc they will be fixing but fundamentals to the back end/architecture of the games. This is such a good example of users going out their way to break the game, Ubi are probably very pleased at this revelation and they will now plug it. Reply 0
  • Where did all the strategy go?

  • syphaa 08/09/2014

    Ahhh I miss the strategic edge, me and some buddies used to spend a decent amount of time creating an entry plan in the likes of rogue spear and R6. One game though that has been overlooked here is Americas Army, back in the day this used to be the go to for realism/strategic FPS and it was free. Incredible game. Reply +1
  • EA unveils Battlefield 4, powered by Frostbite 3, with 17-minute gameplay trailer

  • syphaa 27/03/2013

    As a few people have mentioned, BF is all about the multiplayer. The only thing that would draw me into the campaign would be if it was a four way co-op, but I highly doubt it. But to be honest there still isn't any other FPS game out there that creates so many unique 'Battlefield' moments. That's why I and most people go back to it again and again.

    It also looks stunning at 100fps+ and it's looking like BF4 is building on the amazing foundations of BF3. Personally I can't wait as it can only go forwards at this stage...surely... :)

  • Bethesda re-releasing Quake 4 on PC, Xbox 360

  • syphaa 11/04/2012

    Wow. This has to be one of the most obvious cash in attempts in the industry...and they are going to get away with it?! Why would anyone want to buy Q4 new? As many people have commented you can pick it up on Steam for Ł5 cheaper, or go into Game (i'm sure it's about 1p in there at the minute) or any other high street store and you could probably get it for less than a fiver.

    Unbelievable. It would be a bit more legit if it was a good title and people were ACTUALLY struggling to find a copy...

  • Battlefield 3: Close Quarters Preview: An All-Encompassing Expansion

  • syphaa 13/03/2012

    Looks fun, big BF3/Battlefield fan but am open to this idea of CQC. Only thing is...people complain about use of RPGs against infantry now...imagine what it's going to be like on these close quarters maps. Nightmare. Reply +2
  • Medal of Honor

  • syphaa 12/10/2010

    If it's anything like BFBC2 with regards to its multiplayer then i'm sold...the campaign will just be an added bonus to blast through. Looking forward to picking it up this week. Interested to see how customisable the weapons are in MP. Nothing really outlining this anywhere...or is there?

    Was expecting a 8/10 - 9/10 so not really thrown me for or against.

  • Deadliest Warrior - first 15 mins

  • SBK X: Superbike World Championship

  • syphaa 16/04/2010

    This does look really promising, I have previously bought all the SBK games and must say it's leaps and bounds ahead of any of the Moto GP titles. It's a difficult one because the reviewers and most of the general public aren't really that savvy with the bike racing world so they can kinda miss the point of a title like this.

    Love the idea of having the old schooler's in it, like Fogarty, Chilé, Slight etc

  • Splinter Cell: Conviction

  • syphaa 16/04/2010

    This game is fantastic, just enjoy it for what it is and that's a very competent 3rd person sneak em' up with awesome co-op. Everyone should give it a whirl as once you get engrossed in the story and playing Sam Fisher it really is a fantastic title. Reply +5
  • Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising

  • syphaa 06/10/2009

    Yeah strange review, almost as though the reviewer didn't really have much hands on with the title, and as the other comments suggest here to miss out talking about the multiplayer aspect is just criminal in a game that I am sure will be at its best online against other like minded sim players!

    I am so hyped for this title still and I think anyone who has been looking forward to this title will not be disappointed, a high quality sim war title has been long needed on the 360, personally I can't wait to play co-op 4 player and watch my buddies head getting blown apart :)

    I am hoping its good though!

  • New Kojima Productions game teased

  • syphaa 13/05/2009

    Looking at it again, you can make out what looks like snake laying down, his head on the right in the clouds. Weird. Over at Kotaku they have a load of theories from people in japan. Quite interesting. Reply 0
  • syphaa 13/05/2009

    From the double page spread to me it instantly looks like a field with a cloud of smoke from an exlposion? Almost as though theres a war going on. Maybe kojimas attempt at a FPS/Operation Flashpoint/War genre?

    Will hopefully find out on the 18th? Certainly interested though, huge fan of hideos titles. The obvious being MGS, I don't think it will be MGS related. Fingers crossed it isnt in a way and this is the start of a whole new franchise.

  • Operation Flashpoint marches to autumn

  • syphaa 07/05/2009

    That does suck.

    But as mentioned, I spose its better they spend a few extra months giving it a real hard polish than roll out patches for the next 3 months after release. Still think this has got what it takes, looks awesome. Co-op with a squad of buddies is going to be amazing!

  • MS changes gamerscore limit to 1750

  • syphaa 01/05/2009

    Strange...why would they change it now?

    Im a bit of a horder of gamerscore and am always chuffed to see the 1000/1000 mark hit, 1750 is a bit ridiculous...maybe if DLC is involved then thats not as bad. Personally I think its a dumb idea, it changes the whole dynamic of gamerscore.

  • Moore: PES is in FIFA's "rear view mirror"

  • syphaa 30/04/2009

    Really looking forward to Fifa 10, (ironic name, probably at least 10 iterations!).
    Fifa 09 is still going strong for me and a mate of mine as we are both into our 3rd season on management mode, its awesome.

    Fingers crossed its as good as 09 with lots of nice added features. Can't see how the animations/gameplay can be any smoother though.

  • ArmA II to launch over here in June

  • syphaa 29/04/2009

    Operation Flashpoint 2 is where its at for sim war fps.
    ARMA was buggy as hell and really unpolished and fugly.

    From what I have seen of OP2 it looks imense and a lot more polished.

  • Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising

  • syphaa 16/04/2009

    So hyped about this title.
    By far the game I am focusing on at the minute.

    I am hoping for an ultra realistic title, if people want arcadey fps they can play COD/generic FPS.
    This is what its about. Hope the co-op brings even more immersion.

    Really looking forward to this, fingers so tightly crossed that codies have this nailed.

  • Europe may not see Fallujah game

  • syphaa 15/04/2009

    I think it would be a real shame if this game didn't get a release over here, but as CountFapula said, at least make it region free! Looks like it could be the shocking/realistic war title the hardcore are aching for, as long as it is done with a decent amount of taste and doesn't fall short with regards to the respect shown for the soldiers who fought in Fallujah.

    Could be awesome, could be shocking.

    Hopefully they retain the turntablism aspect and don't make it all wanky and housey/dancey.

  • Killzone 2

  • syphaa 30/01/2009

    Weird review. I didnt check the score until the end [how you should do it :) ] and it kinda read as a 7/8. Spose it was always going to score higher as its Killzone 2 and its so hyped that anything less would have provoked some reactions.

    Still, sounds/looks good and I was already going to grab a copy of this on release. The multiplayer sounds fun, think that will be where my focus will be.

    Bring on release day!

  • Resi 5 demo coming to Live this month

  • syphaa 15/01/2009

    The alternate control scheme sounds interesting.
    I reckon they have popped that in last minute due to all the negative feedback regarding the controls.

    I had a play with it at the EG show and hated the controls. Really slow and over complicated for maintaining a sense of action.
    Look forward to trying the demo out, shame PS3 owners won't be able to for a while...kind of a shame anyways :)

    I have cained the existing campaigns and I would LOVE a new campaign or two.

    Not overly fussed about the versus mode getting the other two maps, but it would be a bonus for sure.

    Yeah awesome event!
    There were some quality titles, LBP, Mirrors Edge and the amazingly gorgeous Killzone 2 were all superb.

    Resi 5 was good but struggled a little with the control scheme. Bit clunky. Gears 2 was as expected.
    SF4 rocked although I got well and truly owned.

    If it happens again next year count me in.

    Think this sums it up really.
    I was really dissapointed, absolutely zero innovation in this title.

    It genuinly is COD4 reskinned. A mod community could do the same job.
    The only thing that I will possibly buy this title for is the co-op, I am hoping that holds up well and is much fun! :)
