    I wish they would just do a remaster boxset of the best of the series for new gen. COD2, MW, MW2. I'd buy that day 1.

    Had some of the best ever MP experiences playing COD2 when the 360 came out. Great maps - Burgundy, Carentan, Moscow. Great days.

  • Star Wars Battlefront is more than just a big budget Battlefield mod

  • t8yman 18/04/2015

    @leehughes1 possibly, could be more, could be less. its what they did with hardline in the week before release, you basically have a 10 hour countdown timer once you start. 10 hours of actual gameplay, as long as you close the game completely when you stop playing, some people left the game running in the background when doing other things, and lost the 10 hours in 1 go!

  • t8yman 18/04/2015

    @leehughes1 no, i'm sure I read there was EA access early play, which is therefore an xbox exclusive. but it will likely be 10 hours play in the week prior to release. Reply +2

  • Star Wars Battlefront playable "first on Xbox One"

  • t8yman 14/04/2015

    I initially slagged off EA Access, but recently - mainly for the BFH first play and the fact I could give my hard copy of BF4 to a friend, I went for it. For 20 I got BFH early, BF4 playable without having the disc in, UFC, which I liked but wouldn't buy, and the NFS game. So I am quite happy with it. Reply +10
  • Smart Boy will turn your iPhone 6 Plus into a Game Boy Color

  • t8yman 04/04/2015

    Enthusiasm on comment feeds and forums doesn't always translate to real world sales. And the potential market is restricted to just 6+ owners. Don't put your house on this making money.
    Cool idea, but I predict a large fail on this one.

  • Battlefield Hardline's disappointing campaign is more Bad Boys than The Wire

  • t8yman 17/03/2015

    I have to agree, from a quick playthrough of the prologue and first mission via ea access - I found the campaign to be dull and unsatisfying, I didnt even bother finishing ep1. The MP however - again only an hour or two, felt really really good. The gunplay was very smooth and responsive, and the firefights felt very fair. It will be interesting to see how the game stands up with full servers, but once players have more of a grasp of the maps and modes, I think it could be a lot more impressive than people are expecting.

  • Battlefield Hardline Xbox One EA Access trial live now

  • t8yman 12/03/2015

    I was considering trialing ea access for a month just to try this, but theres only 9 games in the vault? And I already own 4 of them.
    If I sign up for a month just to try this, can I cancel after the first month?

  • Xbox One overtakes PS4 sales for November in UK and US

  • t8yman 12/12/2014

    Makes complete sense to me, my son and every single one of his friends are on 360. this year the next gen consoles are now becoming affordable for parents who are not necessarily gamers themselves. I think the casual market are going to stick with the brand they are familiar with, and the friends list they have already established on last gen. I know "my son" isn't a barometer for the world console market, but as an anecdotal example - it makes sense. Reply +7
  • Destiny will upgrade your exotics - but there's a heavy price to pay

  • t8yman 04/12/2014

    Glad I dipped out, the game still holds an interest for me (hence me reading the article and commenting) but I traded it for GTA 5, sick of the grind, and during my 2 or 3 months with it, never once had an opportunity to visit xur as I am always busy at weekends (which was basically friday morning to sunday morning). And the epxansion is overpriced and underpowered. Reply +6
  • SingStar Ultimate Party review

  • t8yman 13/11/2014

    Brilliant, the review kicked off with a witty, Ellie'esque tone, and got better. Then I saw it was Ellie. Great review, and such a shame SS has sunk to such depths, had some great times playing it on the PS3 before I got rid. A really good Singstar on PS4 might have made me take the plunge with a PS4 just before the "holidays".

    Bravo for the review

    Boo for the (poor excuse for a)game.

  • Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare review

  • t8yman 10/11/2014

    I'm fairly bored with it already tbh. The campaign feels like every other cod game, the MP - I fear, is going to be very titanfallesque in that the novelty might well get old rather quickly, and I was amazed that this review had no criticism for the fact that Zombies is behind a paywall. I have never been a big zombies fan, but I know a lot of people are/were.
    Its a 6/10 game for me all over the place. MCC tomorrow could see me trading this for GTA or FC4

  • Destiny has over 9.5 million registered users

  • t8yman 05/11/2014

    Loved it for 20-30 hours or so - which aint bad by any game's standards, the only games I have played more in recent memory are the battlefield games since BC2. But Destiny has run out for me, the DLC price and content were an insult, bungies refusal to sort matchmaking for dailies and weeklies and the raid, and the overall grind meant I traded it saturday. COD, Halo, FC4 and GTA5 will be keeping me busy enough, I traded it while the value was reasonable. Reply +2
  • Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare pre-loaded on PS4 is experiencing issues

  • t8yman 04/11/2014

    Install from disc seemed to take ages for me too, I started the campaign as soon as the xboxone said "ready to start" expecting to be able to play MP within 10 minutes or so, I did 1.5 missions and the game still hadnt fully installed, I reckon it took over an hour all told. Reply 0

    I want this so badly, I was a bit late to the Halo party, but loved what I have played, the "hat0rz" really dont know what they are missing. And new bells and whistles are almost always a good thing. They are gonna have to really mess this up to score less than 10/10 in most reviews I reckon. Reply +5

  • Battlefield 4: The redefinition of Early Access

  • t8yman 15/10/2014

    I went back to it after a few weeks off, and couldnt find the mcoms in rush. Buggered me up bigstyle that did. I do love BF, although this game was a real challenge to enjoy. But it is true - there are moments you will only ever get playing battlefield. Reply +2

    I can see those numbers dropping sharply rather soon. lots of people complain about the grind, me included. plus there are a lot of new games dropping in the coming weeks. there's a lot needs fixing, and content (story) adding. Reply +3

    I love the way the copy of dance central is a download code. The move to giving away free game codes is exactly what the big console manufacturers want. to be able to basically give away "nothing", and for it to occasionally appear like added value. Reply +5

    Interesting idea, Ive held off on a couple of games because the RRP is a bit steep for a game I might not like. Ive just finally got fibre, so downloading 30gb+ isnt much of an issue for me these days, but as has been said, for most it is just too much. Reply +9

  • For the first time in ten years, Madden won't be getting a free demo

  • t8yman 12/08/2014

    it would appear I was wrong about early access, you dont have to buy the game, you can have limited access to the full game (or part of the game) for a limited period, up to 5 days before release. so it is a paid demo then.

    i was wrong, EA are still offensive though.
    Reply +3
  • t8yman 12/08/2014

    People do realise that the "early access" is only going to be for people who have paid full price for the digital copy (minus the huge 10% discount they are giving you) and it will be non refundable? And then EA will give you it for free 8 months later when all of the other avenues of revenue have dried up. Reply +6

  • Does Advanced Warfare's exoskeleton really change Call of Duty multiplayer?

  • t8yman 12/08/2014

    I think it looks interesting, it is just cod mixed with other stuff, but the 3 year dev cycle has obviously helped them do more than just churn out a reskin of last years game. the virtual lobby is a nice touch - whats the point of customising your model if you never really see it?

    I hate the "day zero" guff, but if the game is well balanced, and well supported, and they dont shaft you for micros - I might well pick it up. I just picked up ghosts for the XBO, simply cos it was 20, and its OK - a bit of a break from BF4, but its certainly the weakest MP for a long time.

    Map design, spawn system, and balancing are by far the most important parts of getting it right IMHO, and none of those are going to be evident until we can actually play the game.

  • t8yman 11/08/2014

    Are people really so unable to cut through marketing bullshit that they believe the 10% discount is worth anything whatsoever?
    You can pick up games at retail, in the high street, on day one for far less than the RRP, and you get a disc with resale value. EA are offering a 10% discount on digital purchases that are ALWAYS full RRP on launch day, with no physical disc or resale value.

    No thanks EA, I know you only have our interests at heart, but truly- your generosity is too much, I couldn't.
    Games that are 8 months old, 3 of which I already own, 1 of which is only just in a playable state.
    What worries me is the number of people who are saying it represents great value!

  • Looks like we have a Battlefield 4 Dragon's Teeth release date

  • t8yman 05/07/2014

    @Uncompetative the MP is brutal and unforgiving. Knowing the maps is absolutely essential, and they are big buggers in the most part. I would advise starting with some of the non vehicle gametypes to gain some map familiarity before moving on to rush and conquest. When it clicks with you, it is absolutely amazing, but getting there is damn tough for a noob. Its worth the pain - honestly. watch a few youtube videos on how to not be a noob, and understand spotting, resupplying, healing, repairing etc. Reply +2
  • Video: What if Sniper Elite 3 was on HBO?

  • t8yman 30/06/2014

    I think that vid is a little harsh, it certainly hasnt been my experience playing on xbox one. I am part way into the 3rd mission, and have had great fun with it. I'm playing on sniper elite difficulty, and played the first mission twice (once I'd got a grip of the mechanics and abilities) and the second mission took me a good couple of hours. I normally hate stealth games, and find 3rd person a bit of a turn off, but outside of BF4 - its the most fun I've had with my XBONE since launch. I would certainly recommend it to friends. Reply +2
  • Sky charging 5 more to use Sky Go on Xbox 360

  • t8yman 24/06/2014

    I left sky about 9 years ago, its simply not worth it. How people can justify 70+ per month just for telly is beyond me. I really want BT Sport (I'm a huge UFC fan), but as a freesat viewer I can't have it. But I still wont even take the minimum sky package, because Murdoch is a class one cunt.

    I have actually met people who think the only way you can "series link" is through sky. Humax PVR, no subscription, free HD channels, series link, EPG. That'll do me - a 250ish investment upfront, then the princely sum of 0.00 every month.

    edited to add (for anyone not in the know)

    And you simply unscrew your 2 sky aerial cables, screw them into the back of the Humax, and you are done.

  • EA addresses "unacceptable" Battlefield 4 launch

  • t8yman 20/06/2014

    The cheeky twats have no shame. The game is still full of bugs, particularly the sound bug, which I still get in about 60-70% of games. Dont get me wrong, I went back to BF4 last week on the xbone, and its still great fun, and it is actually better than it was. But it is only now appraoching the state they should be looking to release it in. Almost a year on.
    They rushed it to meet the next gen launches, and to try and take some shine off of COD, well how did that work out for you EA?
    BF players and COD players are two very different animals, I've got mates who play COD who would never in a million years play BF, broken or not. Stop trying to make a COD killer, and make great games that work. We know you are capable.

    @Nynja I would guess the reason they put their boxing team on this is that UFC/MMA is officially the fastest growing sport on the planet apparently. Its a line Dana White spouts on a regular basis, i guess there is a small element of truth to it at least. Reply 0
  • t8yman 17/06/2014

    I'm a massive UFC fan, and thought the slight failings of the demo were my failings in skill, but on reflection, it did feel choppy. I put it down to me needing to understand the controls better.
    It was initially instabuy, now I think i'll get it in a price drop, or if the do a really cheap deal in the xbox store.

    And @dragulagb Ronda Rousey is arguably the sports biggest star. Like her or not, and like WMMA or not. She just is, she is on magazine covers, in movies, and is currently being rumoured to be going to WWE (on the sherdog forums) so arguably she is.
