    @Dat_Guy its great fun fella, always has been, but in terms of improvements over the last few months - its almost a different game. I would certainly pick it up. Reply 0

    Ive finished it and more or less replayed it again. Haven't noticed any screentear at all on the XBO version (with the huge day one patch installed). Either I'm a bit blind/dim, or its a different version. Reply -12
  • 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.

  • EA Sports UFC review

  • t8yman 18/06/2014

    @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.

  • Amid rumours of Titanfall 2 for PS4, EA and Respawn reflect on a successful launch

  • t8yman 16/06/2014

    I didn't realise it has been such a flop, sales-wise. I bought it day one, along with my mate, and neither of us played it beyond a week. A remarkably weak experience, void of any depth. Once the shiny "oohs" and "ahhs" wear off, its ultimately a very unrewarding game. I'd be amazed if they even bothered with a sequel. Reply +15

    Just went through the signup process to see if there is any news about the beta on XBONE, theres news - it (the beta) aint coming to XBONE until "Fall".
    Absolutely gutted about that.

  • t8yman 20/05/2014

    @bez87 internet retail isnt subject to the same laws as brick and mortar retail as far as I understand it. But I was under the impression that if they take your money, they have accepted your "offer to buy" and should honour the deal. But I'm obviously not a lawyer, so am prepared to be corrected on my theory. Reply +3

  • How Road Redemption is reviving a lost genre

  • t8yman 16/05/2014

    Should have called it "Road rose tinted spectacles" This aint gonna keep anyone's interest for more than 20 minutes IMHO. I loved RR, grew up on it myself.
    It may have been a seminal game, but so was frogger, and Paperboy. No-one bothers with those any more either.

    People actually use that? People actually have their telly boxes going into their xbox ones? Mine is kept seperate, and no amount of wonderful "features" are going to make me put the two together. My xbox is for games, and my telly box is basically used to timeshift the telly so I dont have to watch adverts. Reply 0

  • Titanfall Season Pass announced, priced at 19.99

  • t8yman 06/03/2014

    BF4 has really put a dampener on season passes for me. Plus, I doubt I'll still be playing the game when the 3rd (or maybe even the 2nd) DLC drops, so I'll save my 3 that way thanks. Plus, the money is better in my pocket until I decide what to spend it on rather than EA's. Reply +3
  • RedLynx defends Trials Frontier's mobile micro-transactions

    imho, the best way to monetize this would be to provide maybe 6 free tracks, then charge for track packs? Surely thats a fairer way of doing it. This is just nickel and diming at its worst tbh. As said above, I'll play it until it asks for petrol money - I get enough of that from my wife and daughter already. Reply +7
  • Microsoft testing cheaper digital pricing for Xbox One games

  • t8yman 17/02/2014

    I really hope this isnt the extent of their "testing", because I havent liked ryse since the very first footage showed up online. I wouldnt buy it at any price - even a fiver. "test" it on games people are possibly going to buy, hell - have the balls to try it with titanfall like some have said. I would pay 29.99 for a digital copy in a heartbeat. I'd buy all my xbo games in digital if they were priced around that point, I dont need discs, and I dont need fancy boxes and manuals. I dont care about trading them in, just price the digital content at a price that reflects the lack of physical product.

    If DR3, NFS and Forza were 29.99, I'd buy them today.

    @LetsGo who knows?, maybe I will, maybe I wont. I know it looks like fun, and a lot of people who played it at the expo said it was the most fun to be had at the show. So I'm gonna err on the side of "quite keen" tbh. Plus I'm sure respawn said the numbers were set at 6v6 for gameplay reasons, not because the servers or game couldn't cope with more? Reply +1
  • t8yman 13/02/2014

    The general atmosphere of MS bashing on here is getting a little dull to be honest. I had a PS4 on preorder, but switched to the XBO for 2 reasons - Titanfall and Halo. Anyone who believes Titanfall doesnt look like great fun is just deluding themselves. Probably the same people who slagged off bungie/halo for years, and are now creaming their pants for Destiny.
    Its getting very predictable every time I come into an MS related thread. The launch for both consoles has been fairly smooth with a few hitches, mainly made worse by BF4's shortcomings. I love my XBO, and no doubt will get a PS4 when money allows, can't we just all get along?

  • Battlefield 4: disaster report

  • t8yman 03/02/2014

    Post patch on the xb1 has been worse from a stability point of view imho, I have had numerous crashes mid game, spawned into empty games often, the sound glitches are worse, the hit detection has become sketchier, and the game often gives me incorrect audio prompts immediately when I spawn into the game - ie the voiceover says "the enemy has set the charge, we need to defuse it", when I am on the attacking team (not sure which maps, but I have noticed it twice on op locker.
    the only improvement I have found is the ability to choose which map pack you wish to play on, using the server browser was never any good for getting certain map packs.

  • Battlefield 4 launches Player Appreciation Month in February

  • t8yman 29/01/2014

    Started playing on 360, it was horrible, but still fun when it worked. Moved to xbox one, and its a joy tbh. I know I'll probably get negged for saying something +ve about the xbox one, but the only issues I have had (apart from my shitness) is the occasional lockup on loading a new round, and also sound dropout during the first 5-10 seconds of some games. Second Assault is great (it does genuinely suck that premium members on other platforms cant have it yet). And the game looks awesome, the 60fps smoothness is a real boost. Reply +2
  • 13GB Dead Rising 3 update released ahead of Operation Broken Eagle DLC

  • t8yman 21/01/2014

    The big question for me is, will the patch make the game worth buying? I've avoided buying it so far because of the reports of horrific jaggies and huge drops in framerate. Saying that the patch fixes "stability issues" is a bit vague imho. And also, if I did decide to buy it digitally, will it be the patched version that I would buy, or will I need to download the game plus the patch? Reply +1
  • Apple to refund $32.5m to those whose kids bought in-app purchases

  • t8yman 16/01/2014

    Everyone calls the parents stupid and irresponsible, thats bullshit, these games are designed like traps, and anyone who has got kids knows that whilst we all love them, we simply cant stand over their shoulder 24/7. Its never happened to me thankfully, but even I cant be sure that all of our devices are 100% locked down. we bought our son an ipod touch for xmas, and as a direct reaction to this kind of problem, I set him up with his own apple id (which technically he isnt old enough to have) and dont have any cards associated with that account. the only way he can buy anything is if he buys an itunes gift card and redeems it, or if either me or his mum gift it to his account. Thats the only way to be entirely safe as far as I can see.
    Its a terrible business practice, and I think one that most gamers agree is killing the way we have played video games for decades.

  • DICE continues to patch Battlefield 4

  • t8yman 14/01/2014

    Still the most fun I have had on my 360 for a long long time. Main issue for me is lockups, my gaming sessions either end by my own frustration at how shit I am, or when my console locks up, I'd say its about 50/50. May be my console?
    Other issues I am still finding are the sound dropouts, mainly on lancang, hainan, paracel and zavod.

  • Refunds available for Xbox One Battlefield 4 Premium customers

  • t8yman 11/12/2013

    for me on X360, its a daily nightmare. Ive had multiple console lockups (daily) Ive had the revive bug (admittedly only once), yesterday I spawned below the map on the first part of Hainan Resort, I could shoot the enemy and they couldnt see me. Most annoyingly is that my save file is somehow corrupted (Ive seen others complaining about it on battlelog) and as a result have lost about 80% of my xp boosts from the battlepacks (I had recieved about 10 and only used 2 of them iirc)

    but, as others have said - when it works, its a joy to be a part of.

  • Battlefield 4: China Rising review

  • t8yman 04/12/2013

    The game is woefully broken for me on 360, constant crashes, lockups and fails to connect to server. I sat down yesterday cos I had a couple of free hours, to take adantage of 2x XP, and managed to get into one game, the rest of the time it simply would not find a server it would connect to. When it works - its sublime, but the amount of lost XP will not be compensated for in one week of 2x XP. Reply -1

    The language in the game is terrible, but some of the side missions - especially the one that was spoilerized earlier, and the 2nd papparazzi mission (i think) are not for the eyes or minds of pre-teens at all. I've made sure to make it very clear to a lot of the parents I meet, what exactly is in the game. My 9yo boy was asking for it, saying one of his mates has got it. No chance! Reply 0

    The car glitch definitely happened to me, one of the first things I did was park a nice one in Franklins garage at his house. Never seen it since. Also, rockstar social club doesnt know about 80% of the cars I have driven, at all. It only shows about 2 cars being driven, no bikes, no SUV's - and Ive driven at least 6 different ones.

    heres the one question you should have asked

    "Even though you showed some interesting titles in development, arguably better than your main competition (but not necessarily so, your competition is cheaper, region free, without DRM, without a "phone home" requirement, without a mandatory HD webcam, and is primarily a "games console". Why should anyone buy an XBONE?"
