  • Microsoft discussing Xbox Entertainment Studios sale with Warner Bros. - report

    @Sapporodan I don't know, this is the first I have heard of it. The article says it was going to be the xbox entertainment division. I would love to see it though :-) Reply 0

    I want to add my voice to the complaints about the word "shuttered" it's a crappy tabloid style word. Eurogamer appears to have high minded literary aspirations but then uses words like shuttered. You think it makes your copy punchy and modern. It doesn't. It makes it trashy and idiotic.

    Lastly, BLAKE 7! I would love a remake of that.

    Everybody is focusing on the disastrous launch of the xb1 but I think that Microsoft's problems started way before that. It started last gen with an xb360 as did most of the people I know but then the rot set in.

    Microsoft did nothing but stagnate with their lead and was content to tread water. No investment in new games or first party devs and began to become anti consumer with it's policies. Things like canceling inside xbox and offering 2p on people's birthdays, adverts plastered all over the dash, (amoung many things) really damaged them. All the while Sony is funding brave games, churning out new exclusives, and introducing ps+.

    I started with 360 and then I switched to PlayStation 3 a good few years ago before this generation had begun and so did everybody I know and from reading this forum so did many other people. E3 was just the last straw, the culmination of what had been happening for years. Sony won the hearts and minds of gamers and E3 just reinforced that.

    I do see signs of change. A lot of ms problems are to do with replacing game industry people with suits from other departments that know nothing about games. What could possibly go wrong? See Don Matrick. Now they have Phil Harrison leading the xbox division there is a chance for change and an indication that they realised what went wrong.

    I got to agree with you. Risen 2 is definitely a contender for one of the worst game I have ever played. It was utter shit in every way possible to be shit: graphics, sound, animation, "voice acting", and so much more. I wouldn't touch this one with a 20 foot barge pole let alone a 10 foot.

    I might be mistaken but I'm pretty sure we already knew this was coming. I don't think it was announced at gamescom.

    In any case, it's one of my most anticipated titles. Hopefully we won't have to wait for this too long.

    As soon as I saw "Ciffy B" was involved I knew it wouldn't be good.

    I wonder why Eurogamer lists it as available on Itunes for £7.99. I'm guessing that's where three reviewer watched it. Is it too much to ask to research? It's avalable loads of places I'm sure. You can rent it for £3.99 on psn and I'm sure other streaming services.

    This is and always has been pitched as a co-op heavy multiplayer game. People complaining that they want to play on their own are obviously missing the point of the game (ie. It's meant to be played with other people).

    But the thing is it hasn't. I remember the YouTube videos and articles and them at E3 saying you could play on your own easily and if you wanted to avoid the multilayer stuff then you could.

    To be honest this games sounds like a cynical money grab grindy shit fest. Diablo 3 for me.

    Just want to add my vote for 3d movies. I think it's just cool for people to hate on them. Yeah 3d is so unpopular and dying we all hate it... But funny how every big blockbuster is in 3d, they still are selling and making loads of 3d blu-rays and rentals and loads of 3d tvs yeah because it's so unpopular.

    @wobbly_Bob So they should just give a big ol' Fuck you to the backers who pledge £100 to kickstart this game and get beta access. I'd be pretty pissed If i put that much up but then when the beta came out anyone could join for £20 or even free I'd be pretty pissed. This is the one of the fairest ways of doing it, based on how they started out via kickstarter.

    It's greedy and exploitative. He could have easily done the same for 50 or 60 pounds. £100 for beta £200 for alpha is just greedy. I notice must of the defenders are people that paid up the money.

  • wobbly_Bob 11/07/2014

    Braben is a greedy asshole. There. I said it. I can't believe those of you defending this. £100 for a beta? Seriously? And then we get the whole "oh yeah it does look greedy. I suppose I could have done it another way." Seriously? It looks greedy because it is greedy. Oh yeah Mr innocent. That was the best way? You could have easily limited it another way. This is about the money.

    Braben said those that buy second hand games are the same as pirates. Yeah. I'm guessing a lot of you that are defending this have brought second hand games si he is calling you a criminal but that's ok let him cream you for £100.

    Sometimes gamers and certain devs get right on my tits. There is a saying that people get the government they deserve well I think maybe we get the games we deserve. All those that moan about on disc dlc, soulless cash in sequels, microtransactions, lying and disreputable devs and publishers and aholes like Braben but then keep on buying those games. Nothing will change.

    Sorry /rant over.

    That's put me right off, then. I thought Spec Ops was crap. It has one of the worst AI enemies I have ever had the misfortune to witness in a modern video game where they stand 2 feet in front of you while you shoot at them. That, along with the dull shooting gallery game play made me abandon Spec Ops very quickly. yes, it's supposed to have a good story but I couldn't get far enough into the game to find out. Reply -7

    Hilarious. Honestly, do you not want customers?

    See that there children? That is a dinosaur! As Sky continues to put it's prices up and wallet rape it's customers so the rise of cheap on demand streaming services and smart TV sets continue to rise. Once the old guard customers die off and everybody has a smart TV sky is either going to have to change or go the way of the dinosaurs.

    Let's not forget in the giddy PR haze that Rushy lied directly to all of our faces. We were promised essentially the full version for psn+ and are now getting a demo instead.

    This game deserves to be boycotted. It won't happen though and this is why we as gamers are continually shit on by the games industry. You make a promise you keep it or if you really can't the apologise and tell me why. Rushy is a scumbag. I won't be touching this game at all.

    The Crew looks much better in every way, anyway. Drive club still looks shit from all the recent videos I have seen with its lawnmower engine noises and scalectrics on rails car "Ai" and boring looking environments.

  • "See those mountains?"

  • wobbly_Bob 15/06/2014

    The problem isn't hire world's. It's not the size is the quality that's the problem. See gta 5 for huge world good and any assassin creed for bad.
    Gta 5 game world was brilliant because it was large sought that I felt like I was really somewhere far away and different entirely when I was out where Trevor lived. The city felt miles away. The world was full of interesting character.

    Assassins creed black flag feels like the same clone stamped island over and over. I didn't feel like a pirate more like the maid or some crazed ocd maniac compelled to tidy the islands of junk.

  • Take-Two suggests more Red Dead and BioShock games to come - report

  • wobbly_Bob 30/05/2014

    I hated bioshock 2. Go into empty room, flick switch, locked in room, enemies spawn. Repeat. The game offered no evolution just a rehash of the first except you can now dual wield. I ended up quitting so for me this is bad news that they are now handling bioshock. Infinite had its problems but at least they tried to do something different. They failed in my opinion but at least they tried.

    I'm guessing that the new rock star game will be red dead 2!

  • Netflix subscription rising to £6.99 in the UK

  • wobbly_Bob 09/05/2014

    PirateRoberts wrote:

    I have watched a lot of TV in my lifetime. But you seem to be putting words in my mouth. I don't doubt there might be a few nuggets of quality TV or films in that selection. But when very common things like Married with Children, Seinfield, Friends, Happy days, Star Wars, Platoon, The Crow, 3rd Rock from the Sun, Scrubs, Magnum PI, The Equaliser, to name a select few from the hundreds of well know items that are missing, you have to ask, is it really that great? Especially when they aren't providing access to the next seasons of US shows already (Parenthood, Justified to name two) that aren't continuing on UK Tv. So imo, It works out cheaper to just buy blu-ray/dvd content, and subscribe for the odd Arrested Development, House of cards or Better Call Saul netflix exclusives one month every now and then.

    How am I putting words in your mouth? You said and I quote "I have seen everything" you clearly haven't seen everything.

    Your argument is ridiculous. You think it's cheaper to buy blue-rays6 than pay 5.99 for netflix??? How much are they in your world? Just one season of a show second hand could cost the sub price of netflix and possibly a LOT more. Box sets generally are in the 30 to 50 range for recent stuff.

    To give you an example the box set of 24 is £46 on DVD! That's like 7 years of netflix and that show isn't even recent or on blue-ray

    You then blame netflix for having a lot of stuff you want and  haven't seen. It's not is it? And with 2468 titles including original content which is growing. Why not try one of the many new shows? I'm sorry but your whole argument is nonsensical.

    As a side point, we cancelled our (brief) netflix subscription, only yesterday. We went a whole week without using the service and concluded we'd seen all it had to legally offer UK viewers at present.

    At present titles count on UK Netflix stands at 2648 so you have seen everything? And I suppose you have seen all the upcoming stuff too including the original content?

    That's what gets me with people that day oh netflix I have seen everything or they don't have anything. What they actually mean it's I have seen every I have heard of and now claim to have seen everything. Just because you haven't heard of it or it doesn't seem your thing doesn't mean it's crap, give it a chance.

    I really never understand the people that moan about the UK netflix not having enough content. It would take you a WEEK just to watch all of the seasons of 24 and let's not even start on all the other TV shows on there and the fuck ton of movies.

    Does it have as much content as the US? No. You are aware of the size of the US market compared to the UK market, are you? You do realize that it's been going for many more years? The content has to be re-licenced for the UK market? And lastly, and by no means leastly it's £6 a month!!!!!!! Do you expect the latest blockbusters on there for 1.50 a week? Don't be silly.

    There is MORE than enough on just the UK netflix to justify such a small outlay from hidden gems to the occasional big blockbuster. I would argue that the UK although has less stuff actually has a higher quality ratio than the US version and the documentary section is better. Of course if you really feel that it isn't enough you could always get the other regions, it's very easy. Or you could pay sky to wallet rape you for £20 is it now for the movie channels for a couple of new films a month that will repeat until kingdom come. Some people want the chuffing moon on a stick.

    I love the rise of the Indy game movement that promises creativity and game play first above all else - but this is a 9/10 REALLY???? Come on. This is everything that is wrong with Eurogamer. It's a crappy mini game collection with the most minimal graphics you can get away with. Sure graphics are certainly not everything but come on. 9/10 for some co-op mini games at an inflated price, no thanks and it's certainly not a 9/10. Reply -9
