Welcome to the new Eurogamer

I know you'll never switch back to the old format, I know nobody out there in EG command gives a dusty fuck about my opinion too. So fuck it.... I'll vent into the echo chamber too.

I've been using EG for years now it's been my go to source for games news. I've seen a few of the site revamps over the years but this one? It's the worst yet.

The sheer volume of white space is hurting my eyes, the ads are even more obtrusive and for me this is a real sign of how EG has changed from what it once was.

The default of best comments is a very personal bug bear of mine as I'm interested in all opinions rather than sheep along with the masses.

I like many others work for intense periods of time and it was good at the end of a couple of days to be able to catch up concisely and neatly. That appears to have gone now.

Finally, I think this revamp really is the erosion of EG into mediocrity as that really is the new safe standard. Becoming yet another characterless, bland, corporate, identikit entity is near completion. I think that's a real shame.

Frontier outlines Elite: Dangerous refund policy following offline mode backlash

Ticket logged, refund requested I'm done with this now. I work away a lot or I'm sailing again no way can I get Internet access and no way do I want to have the Universe I play in impacted by kiddy douche bags.

They did it with the old Elite why can't they do the same for the new?

Money back please.

@Pasco Meanwhile... The ISIS terrorist organisation is systematically annihilating all who stand in its way whilst the west sits on its hands, Russia is making a play to expand her borders killing many innocent people via a proxy organisation, Israel decimates entire neighbourhoods in the name of freedom and liberty and yet another young black man was gunned down whilst surrendering to the militarised Police in one of many poor neighbourhoods in the very country that espouses the notion of freedom and liberty whose values are actively being exported via the barrel of an M4*

This my friend is why I couldn't give a flying bollock about the over indulged and the easily led slinging some cold water over themselves. I'm not even going to start ranting about the charities i.e. It's a US charity what the fuck are stupid Brits donating to that for? What percentage actually goes to the cause? Where is it invested? Who's making money from the interest?

Tomb Raider, Vita's no-show and the mystery of 10m PS4 sales

GitSomE_UK

@Arvind1324 Chap there is so much anticipation as ICO and SOTC are up there with the all time gaming greats. This is why people are salivating at the next big title. It's a massive weight of expectation the studio have to deliver against. I do not envy their task one bit.... AFAIC when it's done it'll be done and I'm sure it'll be awesome.

I'm seriously hoping for another experience not a game. This is what SOTC and ICO delivered.

The only game that's come close to that recently has been Journey which frankly I cannot wait to play again on PS4 (Journey being the only game that's made this 40 something blub with so many different emotions and realisations!).

BTW Excellent interview EG

This kind of shit is right up there with micro transactions, season passes and Early Access.

I don't want to be forced to order from a shop that I never use in order to experience something that should be in the complete game for the first place.

Nope, vendor specific content is bollocks. This and the other cash extraction mechanisms for bugger all, additions of limited/dubious quality or stuff that should be in the bloody game that I'm paying for is slowly killing my interest in games completely.

EG this review is total bollocks!

I normally trust the EG reviews but I think this Paul fella got this very very wrong. I've been reading the comments from others and those in the forums so decided to go for it. The PC version is lovely to look at and great fun to play with the XBox controller.

I very nearly didn't buy this... Thanks to the EG community I changed my mind and gave it a go. So glad I did. Please don't let this guy review again.

Easily an 8 out of 10 this game and definitely my surprise hit of the year so far.

The PlayStation 4 hard drive upgrade guide

GitSomE_UK

4 years ago

Nice Article EG.

Obviously SSD would be the better drive but it's nice to see the stats behind it.

I bought a Crucial M500 and installed it into my 2009 MacBook Pro. It has transformed the machine. Booting Mac OSX is now always sub 10 seconds. Apps load faster and disk intensive apps such as iMovie and iPhoto have a new lease of life. In addition, there's less noise and less heat than the old mechanical.

Now it's SSD as standard for everything for me.

My PC is SSD's only and Win8.1 is just instant on. Best investment you can make for any old and compatible kit.

Battlefield 4 console rent-a-server costs revealed

GitSomE_UK

4 years ago

This is where a game becomes a complete travesty.

When you get kicked off servers for being good, kicked because of others having an emotional strop, kicked so friends can play, maps switched at random and so on. It also allows DICE/EA/Man in suit to slowly shut down the public servers rendering the original game purchase a joke. Why should they pay for servers when you can get Fans to do it for you. BF3 turned to shit when they did this last time.

This my friends is the flaw with this cursed model of always on game play courtesy of EA and no doubt others to follow.

It's bollocks, I hate it and it slowly tears the heart out of the target gaming community.

..... and relax!

Getting to play Destiny: better than Halo?

@gr8effect

It would be an insta-buy if it was an open world single player game.
Same here but I think this always on twitch shooter is the future of gaming. I'm guessing once you have the mechanics and the engine sussed you can rinse repeat every year... D15, D16, D Sportz and so on.

Why bother with all the expense of a single player world and story when you can just offer a premise, a season pass and a nod to gaming of old and off you go.

Titanfall, this and I suspect The Division is the genre of gaming this generation of consoles will be all about.

This isn't looking good. The point of Mad Max was it people clinging on to the last of humanity and what they had... Survival. This is Destruction Derby with a bit of Motorstorm mixed in. I'm dissapointed... but then it's a movie tie in and as far as the laws of IT goes they are always, always bollocks.

Titanfall's upcoming VR simulator map War Games has been revealed

GitSomE_UK

4 years ago

I enjoy Titanfall. However, I've said it before and I'll say it again. I feel this game is only half finished. When you play and get right into it the game feels as though there should be much much more to it.

VR maps are cop outs and I'm disappointed that Respawn have stooped to such lazy gimmicks.

I'll probably pay for this through gritted teeth as I do enjoy the games concept. I just wish there was more single player and there was a way to play offline ala Unreal Tournament with bot matches.

When the Titanfall servers go offline you have absolutely nothing to do (you can't even access your stats!).
