Battlefield V battle royale mode in development - report

Bibbo

19 hours ago

@acuratebob The whole battle royale thing in other games does not surprise me at all. I won't be buying it anyway because of WW2 theme. A fall from grace for Battlefield, and EA finding another way to milk its playerbase of £££'s, since I guess they can't ignore how much money Fortnite is making every single day.

I used to love the Battlefield games, well... Not any more. My last BF I enjoyed was BC2, and still in my eyes no other Battlefield game has come close. My only return to the franchise will be BC3.

How Final Fantasy's biggest failure changed the series for the better

Bibbo

5 months ago

In my eyes, this has gone downhill since i left at 2.4. It got boring fast, and even now with relic, they just recycle old stages. A few pals stayed until Stormbludbredreninnit. They weren't impressed, same old same old. Don't get me started on that bloody cash 4 clothes crap either. Glad i left long ago, feel sorry for those still charmed by it. Hopefully you'll get a recycled relic stage prettied up, to make you realise you are wasting your time with this.

Black Friday 2017: SNES Classic Mini back in stock in the UK

Bibbo

5 months ago

@Yogafire Yes, what a Xmas indeed! I almost managed to win over a 10 minute try before wrapping. But she said... “Babes, you know if I let you do that, I would be playing MARIO World and DK all night” Just the thought of playing these again, takes me back to fond memories of opening my SNES for the first time and playing Super Probetector at launch... Can’t wait, you know what else made me laugh, she said... “Hey, at least we can fire it up, none of this patch crap, and installing!”

Popped in to GAME last night in the hope of grabbing one. Was delighted when they had stock. Missus was considering a scalpy price otherwise. The downside? I can't play until Xmas 😢

Amazon UK limits orders of more than one SNES mini

Bibbo

10 months ago

Good to hear, may give others a chance to bag one. Are scalpers aware of, at least for the moment they are violating eBay rules? Once you purchase a pre-order, it has to be sent out within 30 days of listing end. Which currently will be way before official release.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe patch makes it easier for players to catch up

Bibbo

10 months ago

Another thing that needs to change is positioning in the next round. So if a player finishes first in a race, they should start last in the next. Gives those who consistently at the back, a fighting chance.

But then again, I guess the catch up boost is there for that. Keeps the races interesting!

Square Enix blames Final Fantasy 14 Stormblood connection issues on a DDoS attack

Bibbo

I'm sorry but that is bullshit. A pal has been hammering it since early access. (took the week off work for Stormblood excitement).

He's done the story, got two jobs to 70. The only issues he had was like others, bottlenecked instances where everybody is trying to get in to. But as he plays Tank as a main, he got to the front of the Queue since most were queuing as Red Mage / Samurai.

Ubisoft to me like EA now I generally avoid. Fixing tech issues, into the second year of the game....? WHAT THE FLYING FUCK.

These should all be ironed out within weeks of public sale.

There should be some regulations in the industry, and fines dished out for service this shoddy. Companies can't be allowed to get away with this, especially for so long.

Sony sets a date for its E3 media showcase

Bibbo

12 months ago

Here we go again! This year, Sony will no doubt show off a lot of Destiny 2. Some FF7 Remake footage, and blabber on for a while. Trying to divert attention away from Scorpio (maybe with a price cut?)

Ninty will stick to their good old Direct formula.

Microsoft will bang on about Scorpio. I reckon they will show Sea of Thieves, Crackdown 3, Forza 7 in 4K HDR, as well as RDR2, COD WW2.

Personally, I'm looking forward to the Ninty one more than anything this year.

But i'm looking forward to it, and holding out until launch to buy a 4KTV. I've got my eye on the LG W7 with the Dolby Atmos Soundbar! Will be an expensive year :(

Specs are fine. A nice powerful handheld on the go, little boost at home, lovely. At the end of the day you buy it for the games. Nintendo will deliver the games since it can focus on one platform, as it's the only upgrade to 3DS, sales are definite. I'm looking forward to it, 3 sales in my family, and a number of pals are grabbing one. Now, hopefully give me an online F Zero and Mario Party, and i'll be super happy!

Why I think big console game sales are down

Bibbo

1 year ago

@Fenbops Lack of excitment for me is bang on. Sometimes i thought to myself, Getting older, gaming habits changing? Nope, today's games, just aren't holding my attention and i'm not enjoying the experience. In terms of sales down, Too many games this time of year. With new tech and most of last generations gamers all growing up, mortgage, family etc. They have to be picky into what they chuck spare cash at. I myself can't go nuts anymore, I simply don't have the sheer disposable income to keep up with the barrage of Autumn releases. I also think broadcasting has hit sales, why buy a new release when you can watch with thousands of others, one guy playing from start to finish. Saves you £50. Apparently people watching games have overtaken those that play? Also, Digital is on the rise. I myself buy digital, as with my pals too.

Street Fighter 5 does not punish players who rage quit

Bibbo

2 years ago

Rage quitting does bug me, especially going unpunished. Surely they coul add such things as knowing if the quitter closed game, yanked cable etc. My solution to punishing rage quitters would be simple. If SFV does have ranks or grades that you climb (have not played yet, so don't know) you lose an entire rank/grade. We need to get harder on these people not willing to accept defeat. Not a little time ban, ho no. Something that'll make them think twice before doing it.
