  • Xbox One without Kinect "levels the playing field" with PS4

  • tinners 14/05/2014

    @Confucius sounds like they could raise it by 200 quid now and you would pay it, ahh ignorance is bliss :) Reply 0

    @Specter-Assassin

    i don't see what this does other than actually bring the price down to what it should have been from the start, you don't get momentum from a price drop? they now need another drop to 299 to make up for the lack of power thats becoming more and more apparent with each game being announced.

    Sony need to do the sum total of fuck all at present they are in the driving seat while MS keeps trying to claw back the gap in now sales and technology.

    i think the question is who didn't see this coming as it was a given? also ES Ram is still in that thing so good luck getting a huge performance boost 10%....wow! :p

  • DICE promises to tackle Battlefield 4 rubber-banding

  • tinners 03/04/2014

    "Reducing lag for these players is absolutely a TOP priority for us to solve and we expect to have the solution very soon," DICE added.
    So thats everyone then, i love the way they try and make it sound isolated when it's been completely fucked for everyone since Day 1

    *one day EA/DICE* *sigh*

  • Xbox One FIFA bundle was not a reaction to E3 criticism

  • tinners 22/08/2013

    Did i miss the update where GAME who i pre ordered my FIFA from sent a mail out saying they will also swap it for COD Ghosts which i thought was pretty big given the amount of sales that thing gets per iteration?

    Maybe they have gone back on this as i don't see it being reported?

  • Sony's E3 victory was a PR stunt, but PlayStation 4 is still the one to watch

  • tinners 13/06/2013

    @arcam Definitely! But the only business models we "gamers" should care about is the price and im already watching The Apprentice, if MS released games on demand for the same price so I don't have to que up with a load of yoots for the midnight release of BF4, but also have the option to buy and own like PS4 without the connectivity bullshit then it would be a closer contest.

    It also suggests in this fickle world of gaming we live in that Xbox diehards get upset about an "opinion"

    PC users go on the offensive due to the PS4 finally using PC architect and not having that DDR...yet along with a boat load of 3rd and 1st Party exclusives

    And this is normal for console releases tbh I choose "games"!

    It's also a pretty damning statement to the Industry as a whole when you think that the biggest moment or "cheergasm" @ E3 was weather Sony would decide to stick to something that millions of "Gamers" were crying out for.

    Not the unveiling of a massive game that gets us "Gamers" in hysterics, surely that's what should be getting us excited @ any E3 event?

    And you will still get the so called gamer-crowd following the XB1 with total ignorance like an extra from a Walking Dead Episode, but if your a real gamer for almost 100 less with more grunt and a company that actually listens to it's customer and reads threads, PS4 is the only "Gamers" choice that seems viable.

  • PES 2013 review

  • tinners 18/09/2012

    Thing is if FIFA and PRO both get a 9 and there really is nothing much to split them my shallow football loving side will go with licensed teams, EA have the monopoly for now.

    But given I swore by Pro until the 360 iterations came along its hard for me to ignore a 9, that being sid it needs no be a pretty big leap from previous as FIFA just has the edge in this current era, demos are hard to get a read on when you hardly get time to enjoy a full half.

    Buying both tho isn't really an option for me it's like when in trying to play soul caliber and vf you can only get so good at either of your constantly chopping and changing, maybe if all you play is football then its an option

  • Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Review

  • tinners 23/08/2012

    Been on this all night but tbh it's damn near unplayable at times, the party system other than private games is just refusing to work, it's crashed a few tImes joining friends games, and forcing you to join game chat is fine but if the idea was everyone joins game chat so no one can ghost in an xbl party, then that idea makes no sense at all as both sides can hear each other at all times.

    But when it works it's glorious cs that I spent a ridiculous amount of time playing, just patch it please.

  • Metro Politics: What Xbox's New Dash Means

  • tinners 08/12/2011

    @telboy007 exactly that I think but I've put nothing on the cloud so seems like a bug to me. If enabling the cloud does this to my 360 I'd rather leave it be. Reply 0
  • tinners 08/12/2011

    @suicida Hi mate, you know what I've figured out what it is i think, it's the new cloud service as I never have anything downloading when I shut down my 360.

    Ever since I enabled that on the new dash it's been acting weird, I'll check to make sure it's defo that but it's the only thing I changed recently.

  • Huge FIFA 12 PS3 and Xbox 360 patch out today

  • tinners 11/11/2011

    LaFlamaBlanca - You sound more like a half witted idiot living in the passed, try looking at it from a football perspective than some winging fanboy, I think the EG reviews said enough but there's always one delluded dummy still hanging on to the PES glory years.

    Seabass - lol are trying to catch up with FIFA now, anyone with not even half a brain should know that, stick that in your Burberry pipe!

    Lol "fans who love football play PES?" Are you mad? I loved football enough to realise it's not still the PS2 era where it actually played wayyyy better than FIFA, more like deluded fanbys living in the passed still love PES.

    Times have changed.

    All about the 2 v 2 lobby tbh, now you can kick people and if anyone quits they need to dashboard it, it could actually work well this year.

  • Second PES 2012 demo out on Xbox 360

  • tinners 15/09/2011

    Problem with pro now is FIFA finally feels complete and with all the licenses, pro was the footbling god that didn't need licenses etc it had the most realistic gameplay compared to arcadey FIFA, never thought I'd care until pro

    went next gen and suddenly all the suble updates in the ps2 era were now a distant memory once FIFA 10/11 came out.



    Now FIFA has the subtle updates that im dying to play each year, a shame as I always envisaged pro being undisputed king eventually, that would be in a perfect world where EA doesn't have millions to throw

    at a company who finally get it right

    Some have a point but also have very short memories, I'm sure ppl remember going ape shit over the supposed ps3 footage of killzone @ E3, only to find out it's done by a film studio and has never gotten close to what was originally shown, that's marketing folks what you expect and get are two different things.



    It's still good fun and Child of Eden so far has been the best experience yet, I still think sports 2 and hopefully forza will do it some justice.

    The problem is the new FIFA engine is now in it's prime where PES even if it's from the ground up doesn't have the pure feel of real world football.



    I still think the glory years of PES have been overtaken by FIFA, it pains me to say but EA have my money each year now, muck like the ps2 days of PES

    Dunno why I even worried about mixed reviews this is a 9 and a strong one at that. To see your world act exactly as it would in real life is a thing of beauty, yes the AI can act like braindead zombies sometimes but that won't stop you from gasping at the style and feel of this game.





    It's like Populus meets Black and White with a physics engine I can't see being topped for a while, destructiod shuld stick to reviewing cod blops and the like, the game has way too much soul for these simple saps to understand.



    One things for sure, mother nature is a bitch in this game :)
