Grainger Games tells shops not to open, they are being closed

Ashcroft

4 weeks ago

Damn, this sucks. I remember buying PS1 and Saturn games from their old doughnut shaped market stall in the Grainger market over 20 years ago. Seeing them expand, then move to an actual shop, then more shops, gave me some hope that maybe someone other than Game could survive out there after Gamestation got screwed.

New Overwatch hero looks like one of our heroes, says Paladins maker

There are legal SNES emulators that you can licence, they could have put their own ROM up on Steam and it would have probably cost them less than this creating this dogshit port.

Nintendo on giving Splatoon 2 another fresh lick of paint

Ashcroft

This game is dead to me as long as those stupid map limits are in place. I don't want to play the same maps over and over, how can they think that that's a good idea? It's such a good game too, if only someone other than Nintendo was in charge of running it.

Honestly, I wouldn't mind cosmetic only loot boxes in an XCOM game. I don't really mind them in most games, it's when they use them for character progression and items that affect gameplay that they get bad.

LA Noire's Switch download version doesn't fit on a Switch

Ashcroft

6 months ago

Nintendo should not be allowing this to happen. A day one patch is one thing, but even games with those will still play from a disc without them. What about people with bandwidth caps, or slow internet?

It's not like the game is so huge that it won't fit on a cart, they're just being bloody cheap. They're already selling an old game that's been around £5 on original platforms at a much higher price, this is really taking the piss.

David Cage on Detroit and its depiction of domestic violence

Ashcroft

6 months ago

David Cage wrote a story where a white woman rescues a family of American Indians from the angry ghosts of their ancestors.

He has neither credibility or the ability to handle this kind of material, at best he is the Tommy Wiseau of video games, but unfortunately people keep giving him money to make his bullshit.

Angry Gameseek customers call aggressive discount promotion a "scam"

Ashcroft

Gameseek are one of the few companies that I will never use again purely based on service.

They didn't send what I bought, spewed a load of BS about how they were going to, and then just didn't. Then they refused to refund me, saying they would eventually send it (this was weeks later). Then they ignored me completely. Ended up having to chargeback them.

Do not give these cowboys your money.

Why Overwatch on console is in desperate need of a report button

Ashcroft

8 months ago

Blizzard won't even take emails about the console version.

Back when I played on PS4, I took 5 short videos of people griefing, or cheating by glitching out of the map to become unkillable. I set them to private on youtube, so you could only view them via the link, and sent them to Blizzard.

Months later, those videos still only have one view each, which is the view I gave them checking they had uploaded correctly.

They wouldn't even take the time to watch the videos.

I've since moved on to the PC version, where toxicity is far more common, but griefing seems to less common than the PS4 version.

A Way Out crafts a cocky new forced co-op concept

Ashcroft

Looks great.

It's going to completely disappear without a trace because of the forced co-op; They should just let you character switch, or control it like Brothers.

I know game devs exist in a world where everyone they know plays games all the time, but outside that bubble, it's tough to get people together to do this sort of thing once you're working full time.

The next Overwatch map takes us to the moon

Ashcroft

11 months ago

Lets see if they can make a 2CP map that doesn't feel like you won or lost sort of randomly half the time, without a final point that requires you to kill the defending team 3 times in order to cap it.

I actually like 2CP, but man, they can be a slog.

PS4 external storage tested: 4TB hard drive vs SSD performance

Ashcroft

12 months ago

I wanna slap the shit out of whoever approved the design for the front USB ports on the Pro.

Not a single flash drive that I have will fit in them. They're too recessed, and the grooves are too narrow, only a drive that is no wider than the actual USB port will fit. And I'm not trying use some novelty drive shaped like an anime butt or something, just regular pretty small drives. Even the dongle for the Sony platinum headset just barely fucking fits.

The port on the back is fine, but that's not one you want to use for things you're switching in and out.

She's pretty weak. She has similar health to Zarya, but is twice the size and is the 2nd easiest hero to crit after D.Va. Snipers eat her alive. It'll take time to work her out, but she isn't very tanky right now, I suspect they'll change her health or her fortify in some way to make her stronger.

Bastion is "too powerful right now", says Overwatch director

Ashcroft

1 year ago

Blizzard just don't listen. Everyone that tried the PTR told them Bastion could take too much damage. They posted videos of him surviving ridiculous sustained damage, and once again they still went live with it. It was the DVA nerf all over again. And to put the turd cherry on the cake, the supposed bug-testing that they claim the PTR is for resulted in the buggiest patch of the game to date. They had to pull the entire CTF mode from PS4, it was so bad.

Blizzard apologises for Mei's divisive winter wardrobe

Ashcroft

1 year ago

It isn't that the skin is bad. The skin is very nice.

It is that the skin is in no way 'Legendary'. Based on everything else in the game, it's an epic level skin.

Rare skins are just palette swaps of the default character model, Epic skins are palette swaps with some cosmetic additions, but Legendaries are totally new character models, with totally new voice lines and effects.

Mei's new skin is a palette swap with a santa hat. It should be an Epic.

And to make it worse, while normally legendary skins cost 1000 points, event legendaries are 3000 (an event epic is 750), can only be bought for a limited time, are a very uncommon drop in loot boxes during the event, and will not be available after the event for at least a year.

So if you want the skin you either need to grind up 3000 points worth of duplicate items (which is probably anywhere between 50 to 80 levels worth based on my experience), or get very lucky with a loot box. A cynic might say that Blizzard wanted a new Legendary (Mei's first new skin as well) to incentivize people to buy more event boxes.

I got the skin in my 2nd box and don't even play Mei, plus she is basically satan anyway so I don't really care, but I can see why people are upset.
