Hang on a minute they said that it's not historically accurate that non-white soldiers fought in the German army? Have they done their research properly or did they forget the 13th SS Waffen Brigade and it's incredibly multicultural background? Did they forget that Hitler had a plan called operation Arab Freedom which resulted in deposed Iraqi leaders seeking exile in Nazi Germany?

@erMonezza - True, the one thing the game desperately needs is dedicated servers... I will concede that point, and perhaps some larger maps. Other than that I don't ahve many complaints!

Well, the graphics look good overall; guessing the framerate is stable too - it usually is in CoD. I don't really care if the game has a dog or not, generally the SP is quite challenging and is certainly fun. Just out of interest, out of those who're downgrading the game constantly - which was the last CoD game you actually played? By the sounds of it you don't like the series, so why even bother reading the article? Is it any wonder no-one leaves a positive comment despite CoD selling more than most other games by a factor of many....

Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn review

Elathron

5 years ago

I quite liked it, despite it being very bland. It was a good way to introduce Halo to those unaware of the surrounding universe. The fact that the covenant weren't introduced is in keeping with the game, they struck without warning and for no apparrent reason. Let's face it, it was for the fans, and it pleased me so I can't fault it thus far.

Lemme guess... We're going to get the following pokemon:
Grapeillia who evolves into Grapejuiceia and finally Vino (the shiny version is sparkling and has an ability that makes lots of bubbles).
Asterixia and Obelixia, breed for Getafixia (ability vitalstatistix).
And so and so forth with the presumed French stereotypes I hope :D

@Capn_Franky - Completely agree Sir. I don't give 2 shites about getting exclusive release dates and all that guff, games will get bought when I have the money, not when MS decides I should get it! The only thing that would change my mind about that would be sales like this so good on ye Sony for ahving the balls to sell older games at the same price as their 2nd hand value (again here's looking at you "games on demand" and your wanky prices).
And yeah, party chat. Yay. Shame it doesn't work for Dark Souls still though.

@gnomeandmage - Ahhh. Gotcha - cheers. I never realised there's so much hate for the way the game was released, I'm quite happy waiting for a console verison so long as it's finished/works! However, I'm still slightly perplexed as to what happened re: the 360 version. All of a sudden it looks like PS3/4 only?

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 - Uprising review

5 years ago

@Madder-Max - HC domo has changed that. And yeah, people should be able to upload videos of people spawn camping (as it is an exploit) in order for the banhammer to fall on the perps. It's so easy to tell when they're doing it, just popping in and out of one bit of cover by a spawn point shows no skill.

Perhaps bring back painkiller? That was fun for MW2; being able to rush the spawncampers with a SPAS12 :D

The dark souls community is the most elitist self entitled bunch of pricks outside of dota2/lol. i laugh at the way they think they are "hardcore" for playing a now mainstream rpg series. i won't waste my time trying to enlighten you on the hardcore rpgs i play, because frankly you've never heard of them. its like a "metalhead" thinking they are hardcore for liking some deathcore band like bring my the horizon. dark souls fanbois may look down on the skyrim crowd, but believe me i look down on you.
Whut? Elitist? Self entitled? Have you even bothered reading the Dark Souls thread on this forum dude? I'm praying that you're being deeply sarcastic in some strange way?

I've made my fair share of contributions to that since the game was released & I've noticed a few things about the other contributors too. No-one argues, there's no trolls, everyone gives helpful advice and then passes said advice onto the next set of people to come through. It's joy to read through every now and then (since I've put the game down for a while - now that will change so I thank you for that at least) just to see how many new faces there are attempting what is a really challenging game.

Lastly, I play Skyrim as well - tbh, it's what I play when I feel like a break from Dark Souls. If you play some fantastic games, can you at least tell us what they are? Snap? Petanque?

@RedWombat
We are literally spending taxpayer money to feed a country's poor because that country itself, despite being a world power, is too busy exploiting cheap labor for little pay of their own citizens and as a result, become, in part, in debt to that country. If that's not ridiculously humane I don't know what is.
We have a similar situation with Pakistan & I believe, India? We send millions, if not billions in aid for countries that spend a portion of their own taxes on nuclear tech... When you look at it like that it's hardly humane :confused:

Games Workshop licenses Warhammer 40K to Slitherine

Elathron

5 years ago

@ratboi They kinda did with Mark of Chaos didn't they? But it bombed; despite it being quite good it was incredibly linear and the MP was dominated by a few units. 40k has been their most successful enterprise to date, with all the spin offs like: Necromunda; Gorka Morka; Space Hulk/Crusade; Battlefleet Gothic; Epic 40k; Inquisitor (that would make an awesome game - LA Noire in the Imperium!) to name but a few! Warhammer has only spawned a handful of these, with Mordheim being the most fun IMO.

The most we can hope for is a pool of generic cards available as extras for all decks; things such as (the colourless artifact that gives) "when you play a white spell gain 1 life" (angel's feather I thnk it's called) and the random equipments that would do well in all formats (basilisk collar anyone?).

I hope they sell the IP to a company that cares about fans of gaming. EA used to be a nice company (a long, long time ago, in a galaxy far far away) and now it seems to have taken on a very materialistic attitude towards their IP's. It's not like the Dead Space IP was suffering the same sort of necrosis that other games are feeling currently, so why ****ing cn it?

Wii U sold around 55K during January in the US

Elathron

@dickothe1st - Sorry I disappointed :-P
The main reason I made the comment is that the marketing for the Wii U outside of Nintendo's core has been fairly poor (in my opinion/experience) - it was only up until recently that I did think that it was a peripheral rather than a standalone in its own right. Quite a few of my colleagues simply know nothing about it othr than its name!

A high-end estimate put January Wii U sales at 55,000 units. Xbox 360 sales, in contrast, were around 281,000.
That's because the Xbox is a standalone console though ain't it? Sorry if I seem a little behind here, but the Wii U is a peripheral so surely the sales should be compared to those of the Kinect?

Black Ops 2's Revolution DLC dated for PS3 and PC this month

Elathron

before slapping a 7/10 on the end of it
That's because the multi-player as it currently stands is a little bit... Meh. Even the zombies maps are getting a little bit irksome :(

However they killed snipers dead, hardly see any on these maps as they are so fast with so many corners...
Which in a way is a good thing, but by that very same token is a downside because there are a million more quick-scoping pre-teens with golden sniper rifles. It should be mentioned that not much actual sniping gets done by them, rather they spam .50cal rounds into rooms using the overly generous auto aim.
