Completely agree

In the past where a game has been only available on XBL or PSN, the game (or DLC) has stayed at the RRP price, even its several years old and only dropped its price in a sale) then it goes back up. People who say "bricks and mortar store keep the digital prices high" this shows thats not really true as most 360 XBLA are the same price they day they were launched

Kingdom Come: Deliverance review - history is a double-edged sword

Witcher 3 is fantastic game but it was pathetic how some attacked because their viewed as "sexist and/or racist" Giant bomb GOTY podcast was awful as they wanted to dismiss it because they read something on the internet and the awful austin "watchdogs is racist because I say so" walker was really had the knives out for it (now of waypoint)
Some even attacked it because the main character could not be a trans!

tbh I know very little about Vavra but I don't think the game is actually racist because of lack of non white people. to be honest along with the witcher "racism", I only heard that Horizon zero dawn is "full of cultural appropriation" and some idiots where really attacking the game all because someone called Dia Lacina, a Native American writer, throw a shit fit, before this no one had a problem with the game!
GB (again) were reluctant to give it a higher space of the GOTY (when they loved the game before some woman told them want to think!) Its pathetic. there is nothing malicious about HZD or witcher 3 (and from the videos I've seen, this game_ People are acting like is that hatred game or some KKK game

Can't wait for the review of new Soul calibur game on EG! ;)

When people mention some games cost 65 or 70 they forgot the games were cartridges and you had to pay more for the extra RAM, ROM or even super fx chips (add in the nintendo "price tax" back in the n64 days) Sf2 on the super Nintendo had more memory than every other game at the time (also they knew people would pay it)

GTA5 was great and there was room for new stories in the GTA5 world, new playable character and story. New story expansion would sell well but its cheaper and easier to churn out meh MP content to get fools to pay for these shark cards. I know some will defend it and tell people "to fuck off as its up to the gamer if he/she thinks these shark cards are worth it" well as this shit makes so much money, its why we can't have nice things like single player story for GTA5 and every other publisher hoping to copy shark cards etc etc for there game.

The game needs more improvement than what is listed, like the maniacs, just throwing in some cannon fodder and getting new weapon is still not as good as the psychos from past games.

I know some say cheat codes "use to be behind premium phone numbers" not a great comparison. As you could get them in a magazine or copy of them a friend when you was in school.

You just have to look at NBA 2K18 and how its horrible grind to level up to play better (better stats) watch the ACG review video or read the sixth axis review) then you have GTA5 online which is horrible grind to buy stuff and rockstar made things expensive so people had to grind more or pay for more shark cards.

Also if you don't have time to play the game(s) you just purchased, then something is wrong with you. Whats wrong with just buying 1 game and it will last you a month if you only play a few hours a week. If you need to buy all the best items and blast through in a week, something is wrong

EA reckons 40% of console game sales will be downloads by the end of 2017

Darth_Flibble

12 months ago

If you look at games that are download only (or even DLC) the prices are kept high and only drop in a sale then back up to full price. Old games are still the same price on consoles still, this is why I don't trust a monopoly for download on console. You can't say "while it works on PC" this is because no one controls the PC marketplace unlike XBL and PSN

Also say if a disc is 40, why downloads are 60 to 80? I don't believe people like amazon are twisting the publisher's arm to up the price to that amount. Some will still go for physical media for 40 when they can get a download ver for say 45. Publishers now some will pay the 60+ as they have a monopoly on pricing (like they do with titles that download only)

He should be of sacked for his comments but you know, double standards.

Completely agree with having demos, a demo for a good game would be very good well of selling the game. A demo will be a negative if the game is pile of crap. There is a youtube video of annoying nasally american talking down to gamers about demos but its awful. Lots of gamers thought Doom (2016) was going to be awful due to lack of reviews at launch, if they did a single player demo before the reviews then they wouldn't need word of mouth from gamers.

Dead Space is the sequel Resident Evil 4 deserved

Darth_Flibble

1 year ago

I think it was on an old bombcast, Dead space 3 was focus tested to death to make it appeal to people who hated 1 and 2. Made it more of shooter, added bro-op/co-op with CoD style military guy. I really liked the early parts of DS2 where you have to run but the more casual gamers hated it as they just wanted to starting shooting things. 2 did ramp up the action towards the end but overall it was a great sequel.


imperciallegion is spot on about Revelations 1, the levels where you gun down loads of hunters were terrible but the Jill levels on the ship where great. Revelations 1 and 2 needed a bigger budget for the game as it could of done with less rough edges to the game. Revelations 2; wanted to like it but the levels looked really ugly and dull and it was a quite rough around the edges for this era game.

Going back to WW2 is a bad idea unless they can make the gameplay fresh. No point doing the same old gameplay from old games. If copied the CoD2 and 3 format, then people will be bored of the WW2 era. Infinite warfare felt very generic and the space combat didn't add much, while titanfall 2 was fun single player. I don't think its the setting, its the quality of the developer

Double Dragon 4 review

Darth_Flibble

1 year ago

Have to agree a bad review as I learned more from the Giant Bombcast with Jeff Gerstmann telling more about the game in 5 or so minutes. For example the terrible platforming bits from DD2, I hated them in 2 and going for NES graphics with old, inaccurate hitboxes is 2 more bad decisions for the game, at least make it look and play the superior arcade games.

Some devs are so obsessed with making it look "retro" and make it have very limited animation frames, add it shitty hitboxes (again Gerstmann mentioned this and sometimes it was broken), its going to be less fun to play.

I would like a good 2D brawler but will never get one if devs keep making it like some anicent NES game

Since it was mentioned, if they want downloads to be standard on consoles, they need demos and trials, also refunds like on steam. Buying all digital sounds crap right now
