Destiny: The Taken King guide

Labatyd

When is this game making it to the PC where it should have been from day 1? Fucking Bungie and their infatuation with this generation's asthmatic consoles, it's even more pathetic than the time and resources wasted by Sony porting PlanetSide 2.

I may have missed a lot of news recently, but as I understand it you still can't run arbitrary code on a 360. Trying to compare this leak (and subsequent hacks) with altering a media type check from a peripheral is really grasping at straws.

Rift's first expansion Storm Region will triple game's size

Labatyd

6 years ago

@KanePaws I don't think I could disagree with your post more. While Rift wasn't perfection on every level, it did at least try to be different and graphically beat WoW resoundingly in every conceivable area. Ultimately Rift fell victim to heavy-handed re-balancing which pretty much alienated most of the player base.

Naughty Dog "disheartened" when games' stories are easily branded "amazing"

Labatyd

6 years ago

This article makes me think of the best storyline I have seen in a game, which in my case was probably KotOR1 (loved the twist at end which I really didn't see coming). But I realise that even that story would have fit comfortably within a single chapter of a good book. I think we just have to accept that games aren't the ideal medium for storytelling.

Oh, and Naughty Dog, as HisDudness quite rightly said, you are silver medalist level in the special olympics - don't get ahead of yourselves and start declaring yourself art. It won't end well for you.

Agreed. Sony could learn something from this with their PSN downtime always being during the evening UK time.

This is the only MMO I'm currently subscribed too. If they didn't have such heavy-handed clowns in the game balancing department it would be close to perfect. The level of clumsiness in this area is staggering, and that's coming from a long-suffering victim of Sony MMO incompetence.
