  • Terraria's massive console update coming Thursday

  • wobbly_Bob 15/04/2014

    What a brilliant update. A very generous update. If this was a big company like EA or similar, they would charge for this. Indy development is a real breath of fresh air fire the games industry. Here is what happens if you love games.

    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!

    One again old news copied from other sites. This news is at least 5 days old published 21st March you really are a joke as a news site. There's more to gaming journalism than sitting at a PC and looking at Web sites.

    It's not even new copied news. Often while tracts of text or headings are the same. Come on, Eurogamer.

    Oh and while we are at it can we stop silly click bait or fan boy baiting articles for hits? You can be better.

  • Hotline Miami 1 heading to PS4 as Cross-Buy

  • wobbly_Bob 24/03/2014

    As brilliant as Hotline Miami is, and it is, I can't help thinking this is totally pointless. The only people that are buying PS4 at the moment are the early adapters and surely most people that wanted it already have it? How many sales are the likely to make? Still great game and if for some reason you haven't got it then now is your chance! Reply -2

  • 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.

  • Dragon Fin Soup: a SNES-style RPG for PS4, PS3, Vita and PC

  • wobbly_Bob 19/03/2014

    @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 have to disagree with you. Jet Pack Joyride was very fair bit have you played Collossotron? I paid for it and it still have in app purchases. As if that's not bad enough you quickly get to a point where you really need to start paying or grinding for ridiculous amounts of time. After my experience with that game I now won't buy anything by them.

  • Games are squandering their potential to truly immerse us

  • wobbly_Bob 08/03/2014

    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.

  • Rocksteady reveals Batman: Arkham Knight in detail

  • wobbly_Bob 05/03/2014

    Although I loved the first game Arkham City bored me. One of the problems with Arkham City was it's lack of focus because of the size so this game being 5 times the size isn't necessarily a good thing. Sometimes less is more. Also apart from the car what else is new? I just can't get excited by this although I reserve judgement. Reply -2

  • Microsoft announces first Xbox One price cut - and throws in Titanfall for free

  • wobbly_Bob 24/02/2014

    "The price cut comes just three months after the Xbox One launched in Europe on 22nd November 2013. While the console has sold over twice as fast as its predecessor the Xbox 360, it is being outsold by its cheaper rival the PlayStation 4.

    Xbox UK managing director Harvey Eagle told Eurogamer the price cut was not in response to this sales situation.

  • We no longer have to be space marines

  • wobbly_Bob 15/02/2014

    True there are more interesting quirky and different games being made now and those are the games that really interest me. There are a few exceptions but mostly AAA games hold less interest for me. It's the smaller indy games I tend to have the most fun with.

    It's depressing though because when a story about quirky indy game gets published, even when it's a big budget title like puppeteer, you'll typically see 20 to 50 comments but something generic like battlefield or space marine blah blah will get 200+ comments. The real problem is people say they want different but like the big publisher suits people are by nature conservative and deep down want the same thing. This is true in any media.

  • Stories with dice: the thrill of old-school D&D

  • wobbly_Bob 18/01/2014

    When I look back through the pages of my life the times spent playing dungeons&dragons with my friends will always be some of the most deeply cherished.

    I was young, no responsibilitys to speak of, full of energy! We would all meet up at my friends house on Saturday afternoon (4 of us) and start playing. At some point we would get hungry and go and get Chinese take away and then carry on through the night. Eat breakfast and then carry on till his mum cooked us Sunday lunch. We would then play some more till around 7ish.

    We laughed, chatted about this and that (video games aroung the subjects and often which was best?Sega or Nintendo?), we would argue... Some monumental arguments that were often very silly and often about the rules or something stupid we wanted or character to be able to do but we always made up and laughed some more. Such adventures we had. Good times. The best times.

  • Nintendo slashes Wii U sales forecast from 9m to 2.8m

  • wobbly_Bob 17/01/2014

    Wow, that's brutal and grim situation.

    Iwata needs to go. it's plain. It's simple. Nintendo needs new leadership. The Internet isn't going away. The global market isn't going away. The Wiiu is a collection of monumental mistakes and it the blame is squarely at iwata's feet.

    I personally feel strongly that the wii, although generated huge profits for them, was a lucky fluke rather than genius business move. It was in the right place at the right time. The wii though a financial success damaged Nintendo greatly because it alienated the core gamers and damaged Nintendo reputation with the huge amounts of shovelware released on the system; This too has to be placed iwata's feet.

  • The next Xbox Live Games with Gold title is Gears of War

  • wobbly_Bob 27/11/2013

    Dear Microsoft,

    A bit of friendly advice: either give away decent games or just don't give anything away at all because people just feel insulted and get the right hump. Try buying something from the "everything a 1" shop, leave the price on it and give it to your granny or other loved one this Christmas and watch their reaction. Same thing.

    Best Regards,
    Bob.

    In the same way that actual wars (amidst all the killing and general unpleasantness) lead to great leaps in innovation and progression in all fields, we need at least two super-powers to be constantly engaged in the console wars on a roughly equal footing - otherwise there would be no competition, and no incentive to advancement.

    If anyone ever wins the console wars decisively, we all lose. The closer-matched they are, the harder the fighting - and we all benefit from the wonderful new toys their R&D boffins come up with to try and outdo each other :)


    I agree with you a hundred percent. Sony needs Microsoft and Nintendo to keep it honest and the same is true the other ways around. However I do hope Microsoft's xbox1 gets a proper thrashing, not out of any fanboy glee, but because a message needs to be sent regarding their anti consumer practices. I want them to get a bloody nose... Only not too badly or we might get arrogant ps3 launch Sony back and that would be bad.

    I wouldn't say it was a great launch for them and to say otherwise is simply spreading Microsoft PR spin.

    As many have pointed out they did one million world wide, while Sony has a million units sold in just North America. I think the really interesting story here is that ps4 is rare as unicorn shit where as the One is sitting in the shelves and easily obtained; Mirosoft's Xbox1 is clearly being massively outsold. Despite Mirosoft's spin they cannot be happy with these sales.

    Its going to be very interesting seeing how this plays out in the next year. MS still seems like it hasn't got it's act together. Sony was the same with the launch of the ps3 but they turned out around so it's certainly possible that Microsoft will get their act together. However they are up against a Sony who have their game face on this time. Much of Microsoft's success last gen was down to Sony massively fucking up. A reinvigorated Sony will be a fierce opponent. They didn't dominant two generations with luck. Interesting times!
