@carrotcake yeah, the polar feedback from ordinary people worries me though. So many still keep spouting the rhetoric that Nintendo cant be taken seriouly... pís me off.

And still AAA (and even some popular indie) devs will have you believe the Switch doesnt deserve serious support. Delays, overpricing, old releases of titles theyre making better versions of on other systems...
Itís all to reduce enthusiasm for the console and create an air of mediocreness about it.
I expect its because Nintendo have always kept tight hold of how things are done and they hate that...
They make great, inventive machines and some of the most entertaining titles, yet still everyone feels míeh about them.

@MarkMarkYepMark "carried away..." Yep. Easily done. I've been there myself a few times; purchased a new hotly-anticipated title then proclaiming it to be the best game ever. Then realizing soon after that, actually it isn't as good as I initially claimed. Of course there's nothing wrong with that. As gamers we can be very passionate about our hobby; after years waiting sometimes, a new release can make us feel like children on Christmas morning!

But going back to Odyssey, there are many moons that can be obtained with very little effort and even less thought about how to obtain them. Ranking wise amongst my all-time Mario titles it isn't at the top. Of course during the first few days of play I defo would have said: "Best Mario Ever!!!" But after the dust has long since settled that title to me is still SM64 followed very closely by (probably) SMW followed by Galaxy 1 0r 2. :) Again, probably...

Best game in the series for me as well, although it certainly play a role that it was the first game of its kind (that I played at least, before people mention King's Field.) Not sure how well it holds up today, but one thing is certian, the Soulsborne games have never been as scary again. The Tower of Latria still sends shivers down my spine.

@th0rax Most countries that allow gambling have operators licences and regulations for conduct. I don't know if Holland or Belgium allow casinos or bookmakers, but assuming they do, those companies have to adhere to regulations, that games selling lootboxes have ignored.

@spunkythefunkymunkey It can be bought by parents for minors. if loot boxes are gambling, selling them to minors is a crime. or indeed selling them to adults without the countries relevent gambling oprrators licence, or failing to adhere to legal codes of conduct.

I am not giving up on Respawn. If grEAd manages to fuck it up, then that's that. I will still be happy with the two previous games.

Stick it to the Man was one of those games that I always meant to give a go, but for someone reason I always defaulted to something else. I really need to rectify that. I think when the new one comes out, it'll be a nice opportunity to buy both and play them back-to-back.

@Concrete Sorry, but it wouldnít take six months to change a game like Overwatch. It already has a play-time based loot box reward system in place. It would take minimal coding time to remove the paid box feature and alter the rates a bit for the play-time based rewards. Any skilled programmer could do that in a day or less most likely.

Well, DF interviewed Bluepoint for the Shadow of Colossus re-release and were teased the fact that they were doing another game. Then DF does an article on what Bluepoint MIGHT be doing...

...it seems pretty clear they got some inside info and are priming the pump, so to speak.

I really hope that X gets ported, I went and played the original on an emulator and I'm clammering for more Xenoblade (especially considering how different X is with a focus on exploration)

@Brainflowers In an editorial piece a little while back, EG explained they base their game coverage on readership rates. If they seem to be posting a lot about a single game, it's not just because EG themselves really like it (although that is a big factor), but also because those stories get a lot of hits.

I don't want it to be that way, I'd much rather they focused on breadth, but at least that's the logic

@VideoGameAddict25 Thatís the really atrocious thing. These are the prices from ďstocked and sold byĒ Amazon. A major part of the issue is the fact that the silicon itself (vram too) has increased significantly in price from the manufacturers due to the insane demand. The next generation is going to be quite expensive if the supply doesnít normalize prior to release. TSMC canít keep up.

@bad09

You misunderstand. I'm not opposed to some kind of regulation, but I am accepting of the fact that some are not only more than happy to indulge in loot boxes etal they're also perfectly fine with the practice. That might upset those who are completely opposed to it, however even if the powers that be deem suitable regulation needs to be put in place then fair enough, I'll even support it, it's not your job to decide for others what's best for them. How gamers choose to spend their money is none of your business

Also, and given it's my particular field of expertise in my line of work, I don't need education on drug culture from some angry nerd boy on the Internet. Cheers.

Do we really need this - -a ground up remake of a ps3 game? I know this is not going to be popular, but no - we really donít.
Itís just a totally different proposition to SotC
The hardware to play demon souls is widely available still. Itís not a game that can really be improved on without changing it or add Graphix (who cares).

There are so many games that could be remade, and bring something fresh to the current line up, like the SotC remake did. Games like, I donít know, timesplitters 2 (or3), mgs3 (or 2), vice city, tony hawks 2 (or 3), knights of the old republic 2.

@abczyx

No I have no doubt that it's an excellent game, and that it's very popular, but there has been a fairly common view that even then the level of focus EG put on it has been disproportionate.

If this was the type of website that reports on every sizeable occurrence in the gaming world and reviews almost every new release, then sure, if they want to commit a lot of extra focus on one big game then fine, have at it my friends.

But EG is a much smaller scale platform, with fewer but generally higher quality articles. Inside this arena, a lot of extra focus on a few golden geese (e.g. PUBG, Overwatch, Fortnite, Destiny, Sea of Thieves) will naturally come at the opportunity cost of covering a wider and more interesting array of releases across the gaming world.

I mean I still think EG is a great website or I wouldn't be here, but I just think they could spread the focus and content a bit further afield.

@potatoes Eurogamer can't help it if the same couple of games are producing most of the news. They cover almost everything worth covering without having to write 700 articles a day to keep up with every Indie game, but the issue is that Epic Games PR machine is spinning so damn fast that Fortnite BR is the majority of the news right now. Eurogamer would cover literally everything else if other games were putting out as much news as Fortnite BR is. Fortnite BR is the gaming industry right now and if you ignore these articles there are still dozens per day for everything else..

PS. I understand that it sucks that Eurogamer are on face value only focusing on "Battle Royale", but Eurogamer has always focused on what is generating the most news, the only difference is this time for some people it's not what they are interested in. I have been reading articles on Eurogamer since I was 13 years old, I am now 30 years old and as a result I have seen every trend come and go. Eurogamer to me is operating no different to when every other article was about GTA: San Andreas or any other eras flavour of the month/year.

@Sour_Grapes Agreed. What happens when Mario Party Switch comes out and people want to party up, talk and play together? Or get a round of smash in 1v1 with a friend before you go to bed? I'm with you, its a must have if Nintendo wants it's consumers to take its online seriously.

@Paul1979UK

Been few weeks since I checked prices, but £900+ is even more than was when I checked, but I was looking at second hand market.

Your brother got a really cheap 1080ti there. I got mine (Asus gaming X, that was rated very well, but wasn't the highest end, as they were insanely priced, well not compared to now lol) fairly shortly after release and even then discounted, that was £645(most retailers were asking for £700), but I offset cost by selling my 990ti.

Ordinarily I'd be thinking to sell it, but not like I can get anything better for money at this point. I'd probably have to wait at least few months for prices to stabilise.

I'm with you 100% and I feel like actually we aren't their target audience anymore. It's difficult and feels like someone is turning his back on you. The redesign of the website made me visit it a way less than before. Than you come and check every now and then just to see an article like this...and then you have to scroll through ads and eye blinding white spaces that make no goddamn sense to vent in comment sections...I don't want to let EG go but goddamn they're really pushing me out.

It makes me sad to see eurogamer forget why so many of us kept coming back for so many years. They are clearly following a path to more traffic by appealing to a different crowd.

Iíve complained about this before, but it feels like much of the journalistic integrity has been replaced by reactionary reblogging, in some demented race to beat the thousands of others outlets which deal in the same thing.

I donít know if we can blame the current leadership, but I miss the Bramwell days. Maybe itís rose tinted glasses, but back then it was about games for us, not endless stories about what theyíre currently playing in the office.

Edit: I should mention that the reviews are almost always of a very high standard. Itís the Ďnewsí team I think I have a problem with.

@Nolenthar iíd love it someone could crack it, it would certainly make my own benchmarking record keeping a lot simpler.

The problem Iííve found is that even dedicated tools like 3DMark (which Iíve purchased every version) do a very average job of recording your machines specific metrics.

For instance, 3D Mark is hit and miss as to whether is records my actual clock speeds (CPU, GPU/VRAM) normally Just recording the stock clocks from bios rather than the actual clocks used during the benchmark. What this means is that people seeing and comparing my scores have no ACTUAL idea how this compares to their situation.
