  • Microsoft's mixed messages at E3 aren't pretty for Xbox One owners

  • verynaughtyboy 16/06/2016

    @frazzl

    "it's totally not ironic for a clueless muppet to not understand basic definitions and insist they're right in the face of evidence to the contrary :lol:"

    You say that as someone with some experience in the matter! Frazzl, you're clearly out your depth here and the fact that you managed to Google something to agree with you carries no weight. Whilst a limited definition of hypocrisy may include intent to deceive, it's broader definition has included what we may refer to as unintentional hypocrisy for years. In fact, I've so enjoyed discussing it that I'm going to start researching it further tonight and a write a paper on it. I might suggest you try understanding the meaning of irony; it's embarrassing when you use words you don't understand.

    And at the end of the day, whatever I am, you remain a rabid fanboy.

    Listen... Someone somewhere said a slightly negative thing about Xbox - you better get on it!

    @frazzl

    But feigning is only one part of it, not the complete definition. Hypocrisy can apply in both situations where a person advocates a moral principle which their own conduct contradicts, knowingly or not.

    / the behavior of people who do things that they tell other people not to do : behavior that does not agree with what someone claims to believe or feel/

    You are taking one aspect of the definition and assuming it is the entire definition!

    @frazzl

    I see what you've done there frazzl, you are being very selective with your definitions and trying to befuddle what's been said. You've accused me of calling you a fanboy whilst being a fanboy myself: that's pretty close to a straight definition of hypocrisy. Here's Webster's definition:

    / the behavior of people who do things that they tell other people not to do : behavior that does not agree with what someone claims to believe or feel
    Full Definition
    1 : a feigning to be what one is not or to believe what one does not; especially : the false assumption of an appearance of virtue or religion/

    Nice try though. Keep googling some more and I'm sure you'll find some other spin to detract from the fact that you don't know the difference between irony and hypocrisy.

    @frazzl

    Two points here, please read them carefully because we all know you struggle.

    1. I am a big fan of Sony games. However, I can stand criticism of Sony, whereas you can't of Microsoft. As I said more than once here, the points in this article are valid for both Sony and Microsoft. I can accept that, you can't.

    And the main point...

    2. What you are accusing me of is not IRONY, but HYPOCRISY! Do you understand the difference? Clearly not! (I would also dispute any hypocrisy or fanboyism on my part. For the record, I think Xbox is a great brand but that MS have muddied the waters lately with their product and I don't like it. Ditto goes for Sony with the Neo, I don't trust that it won't eventually leave the PS4 behind.)

    Obviously you have comprehension issues, princess!

    So I'm still waiting for you to explain any irony I may be guilty of....

    I'm going to take this as an admission on your part that you're wrong. You clearly can't articulate a reply, so have to respond with playground-level "lol's."

    That's ok, I don't take on fanboys and actually expect any logical or meaningful discourse.

    Bless you for trying though :oD

    Your zealotry and rabid fanboyism for M.S. is one of the easiest things in the world to establish objectively, 30 seconds in your comment history is enough to prove it! Anyway, keep crying those tears mate, I'm sure there's many more to come!

    "Are 3 year generations that short? Do you really want another 8 year generation?"

    You do know that there are other numbers between 3 and 8, right? I mean, I'm not aware of a rule that says if you don't release a console on 3 years then you have to wait till 8!

    I know you claim to not be an M.S. fanboy frazzl but you absolutely are! You clearly cannot handle any criticism of your favored brand and, I'm sorry to say this, but you've embarrassed yourself a bit on here with your hysteria aimed at EG. They're just asking questions (which they also direct at Sony) so just chill out a bit.

    Wow! The Xbox fanboys on here just cannot handle genuine questions being asked of their beloved Microsoft overlords.... Get a grip!

    This article raises valid concerns (and it points out that they also apply to Sony) so stop being so damn sensitive! Just because EG are asking questions it doesn't mean they are anti-MS/pro-Sony... you're just assuming that everyone is as partisan as you are!

  • The Last Guardian: the first 40 minutes

  • verynaughtyboy 16/06/2016

    @Filben

    There's a scene where a couple of the guards are chasing him and it looks rather wonky, and dare I say game-y! Up until now everything I've seen has looked great so I'm not quite hitting the panic button yet.

    I am sure though that TLG will hit us all right in the feels and have the amazing atmosphere of the last two games.

  • verynaughtyboy 16/06/2016

    I have to say that the E3 trailer for TLG was seriously unimpressive. I have been desperate for this game since I completed SotC, I worry that nothing could live up to my expectations.

    All that said, I'll buy the Collector's Edition on day one and play it before anyone can spoil it. I'll maybe play through ICO and SotC to prepare myself for the archaic controls. Who here remembers when you had to press a button to grab a ledge?!

  • Horizon: Zero Dawn new gameplay features dialogue wheels, mounting

  • verynaughtyboy 14/06/2016

    I actually haven't been that excited for this game but have merely viewed it with mild curiosity. This video has changed it for me, it really looks wonderful. I'm impressed at how much is going on and the scope of what you can do! In that final battle I was surprised to see that the wood huts were destructible, and I feel that's necessary or you could just hide behind them and suddenly the scary monsters aren't so scary. I hope that with everything going on that the game runs smoothly. Guerrilla are very good on a technical level so I probably shouldn't worry. Reply +1

  • It's a biker post-apocalypse in Sony Bend Studio's Days Gone

  • verynaughtyboy 14/06/2016

    I just watched the gameplay section: Wow, it looked intense! I felt a slight concern that the zombies went down too easily, and they also were a bit too dumb - they basically let him jog past them at points! However, overall I love the look of it, I can't get enough of these post-apocalyptic, world-gone-to-hell, lots-of-scary-monsters type games/films/programmes.

    Well and truly on my watch-list!

  • Fallout 4: Far Harbor update fixes PS4 performance

  • verynaughtyboy 04/06/2016

    @IronSoldier

    I really feel that Sony and Microsoft need to start taking developers to task over games releasing in a broken or sub-optimal state. We actually need a bi-lateral agreement between the two to impose certain quality standards on publishers. I feel that only the two of them working together will achieve this, only then will they have the power to successfully impose their xonditions. Of course, I might as well wish for Putin and Obama to snog publically!

    First of all I would say that I have have enjoyed countless great experiences on my PS4 already, and I've only just had it a year. As far as I'm concerned the #greatnessawaits has been fulfilled. I have always viewed #fortheplayers as being a reference to Sony not following the anti-consumer policies Microsoft originally planned and thankfully dropped, and a simple play on the world 'player.'

    Even if Sony had released an immensely powerful console (which they haven't) I would still expect developers to release poorly optimised, bug-ridden, juddery messes. In that case, would it undermine the hashtags or would you apportion the blame differently.

    Sony released a fixed spec console (for now!) and Bethesda could easily have released a game that ran well, as it now seems to. The fault lies with Bethesda for not working within well-known perameters and limits, and possibly also with Sony for certifying it.

    "It was intended to gently humour Sony's insufferable BS marketing slogans proclaiming PS4 to be something it rather evidently is not"

    1. Exactly what have Sony claimed the PS4 to be that it is not?

    2. What in #greatnessawaits and #fortheplayers relates to Bethesda releasing a poorly optimised game. Any developer could release a game that even the mightiest PC would struggle to run, and that would be the fault of the developer. I struggle to see the conection you're making here.

    @mega-gazz

    Good points there. I do mainly put this at the feet of the developer, but as you say Sony have allowed this to be released. I wonder if either Sony or Microsoft would have the balls to refuse to rubber stamp a game that runs badly, or would they worry about the advantage they might hand their competitor if they delay a big release?

    I agree with you. The sort of people that do as you say are... Well, we know what they are. I'm just a bit surprised at Iron (who I do like by the way) as I don't expect it of him.

    A poorly performing game is the fault of the developer, although as has been pointed out to me Sony still have some culpability as they rubber stamp it before it goes out.

  • verynaughtyboy 04/06/2016

    @IronSoldier

    You've made similar comments to this where you finish with #fortheplayers and #greatnessawaits. Those are Sony slogans, as you know, so I don't understand why you bring them up. The faults in the game aren't Sony's, they ought to be laid solely at the feet of Bethesda. If a PC exclusive game was poorly optimised you would, in fact, you have, criticised the developer, and rightly so. It would be wrong to criticise the PC as a platform, and you would be, and have been, incensed when people have tried to.

    I don't, therefore, understand why you, someone that considers themselves objective, bring Sony in to this.

  • verynaughtyboy 02/06/2016

    I'll throw my hat in the ring here and agree with the majority of posters so far. I really enjoyed The Order; I played it only recently and with suitable expectations of what it was going to be. I disagree with Grassy (respectfully) because I play a lot of games and yet I still enjoyed The Order for what it was. I hope that R.A.D. at least have one crack at a sequel as I feel there is enough there to build on; an increase in quality comparable to Uncharted - Uncharted 2 would yield a pretty great game.

    As far as visuals go, it's a stunning game by any measure. Ironsoldier, maybe the borders disappointed you but you surely can't deny that within that it is a very impressive looking game packed with fantastic detail.

  • Gran Turismo Sport ditches one of the series' big features

  • verynaughtyboy 31/05/2016

    Gran Turismo used to be a flagship title for Sony; a source of great pride. These days I feel it's accomplishing the opposite: delayed and underwhelming releases have tarnished its once impeccable reputation. As ever, I'll save judgement for the final article (which these days we don't see until quite some time after release) but there are too many high quality alternatives for GT to live off its reputation from years passed.

    I genuinely don't know what he thinks. He seems to think that a new console will improve the scarcity of console games running at 60fps, a silver bullet of sorts, and not recognise the reasons why we don't get lots more games with higher frame rates.

    As far as I'm concerned, I have no problem with the principle of a PS4 Neo. I have to wait and see what it offers and how it will affect the original model. We literally only have leaks and hearsay right now so I don't have a proper opinion.

    If it's a significant enough step up from what we have now, then sure, I'm open to getting one at some point.
