  • David Braben explains Elite: Dangerous £100 premium beta

    @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.

    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

  • Sky charging £5 more to use Sky Go on Xbox 360

  • wobbly_Bob 23/06/2014

    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.

  • DriveClub could be the racing game to beat this year

  • wobbly_Bob 18/06/2014

    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.

  • wobbly_Bob 09/05/2014

    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

    I got this on the PS3 and then for it for the vita. It seems a great fit for a portable. I couldn't play it on my vita though because of the bloody back touch pad. Now I can turn off the Bach touch I can finally play it.

  • I never want to play Shenmue 3, Half-Life 3 or The Last Guardian

  • wobbly_Bob 12/04/2014

    It's an odd attitude. Surely let them try and if it's terrible well...ok. So what? But what IF it's good! Surly it's better to try than just do nothing?

    I mean would you not eat again in a restaurant you had the meal of your life in on your 30th birthday because it might not be as good? Not go on a date because she might not like you? Surely in every aspect of life there is the chance as chance that we will be bitterly let down and disappointed but if we do nothing then there will never be that chance that thing could be all that we dreamed and hoped for.

    Yes those games could be crap but what do you have to lose? Are you finding them? No. Of its crappy then don't buy it... But, oh, what if!

    @joetheblow Oof! Way too expensive.
    Stick to buying jewels in phone-games if a £15/$20 RPG is too much for you, man.

    I think the problem is that on the last gen this would have been £9.99 or £11.99 at the most. Suddenly nearly every digital game is 15 quid. Why the price hike? It would be difficult to argue it's because next gen graphics cost more since nearly all this indy digital titles aren't big on graphics eye candy and are fairly simple. It's simply a crafty and greedy price hike... Coz... It's next gen...

    That said, I'm really keen for this and excited. It's Defiantly a purchase for me!

  • From Software explains changes to Dark Souls 2 graphics

  • wobbly_Bob 21/03/2014

    Firstly well done Eurogamer for once again reporting days old news!

    I watched the video and to me there isn't a great difference between the two. In some cases I actually prefer the version we have now. What a Storm in a teacup. If the game runs better with the scaled back graphics then fine. Would people prefer they releases a broken stuttering mess?  If I was the Dev I would feel like I can't win.

    As for From Software purposely trying to decieve people, I think from deserves or trust. Here is a developer that doesn't have micro transactions, pointless rip off dc and ask the other horrors that plaue modern gaming. People saying they feel cheated? Really? Really? Is the game good? Yes. Then fine. It's all that matters.

    @Daryoon Totally disagree with you. I love rouge like elements! I Every game is an adventure. This is why I still play Spelunky.

    Also I think that the rise in popularity of these rouge elelments is because people are tired of games having no challenge. Without consequence what's the point?

    I get shot but I just hide for a few seconds to refill my health or die and just get placed 3 steps back from where I was? Dying should have meaning and should be scary. See Darksouls which is an AAA rouge like.

    I totally agree with this article. It's not something I have seen brought up before. The collection of crap really put me off assassin cred 4. I thought it really ruined batman too. I'm the dark knight trapped in an asylum full of the counties most dangerous nutters who are our to get me but I'll just stop and work out this puzzel the riddler left me. It made it feel very gamey.

    One of ff the things I love about video games is the chance to be essentially a virtual tourist in an amazing World bit that's often ruined by the other bugbear of modern games which is the need to shoot things in the face. Does it need to be that I have to run around killing everything that moves?

    The rise of Indie games have been the one greatest thing to happen to modern video games. I find myself enjoying those far more and getting more and more bored by the same old same dull same old same old of the mainstream titles.
