Sorry, Bungie, but I just gave up. I loves my Destiny I do, but the connections at the moment are making for a pretty shocking experience. Overwatch is smooth 60 fps stable connection goodness. Learn, Bungie, learn.

DriveClub's latest update is its most radical yet

Luke_Martin_VA

2 years ago

Bravo, Evolution. Jumped back in this morning, paid for the season pass, got up to date with the packs and loving the new handling. Assuming it's a new(ish) feature: love the fact you can override auto gear changes. Used to be a great feature of PGR2. Forcing it down a gear if needed coming out of a bend is awesome. Especially when you can't be fussed with manual changes all of the time!

Kudos.

Agree with most of the article but, you know what, I fired her up this afternoon, did the daily crucible and had one of the greatest online games I've ever had. Adrenaline, heart pumping, sweet victory. What more do you need. Like Prince said: there's joy in repetition.

Great to see MIDA back, although it never really lost its relevance in the Crucible. Never really used it in PVE. Still, will be good to have it for Iron Banner again.

Give me full BC and a slim box that can stand on its end and I'm in. There's enough shit around my TV as it is and the 360's in the lad's bedroom. Would like a way to play my old 360 games that aren't appropriate for my son but I'm not buying yet another 360 or an 80s VCR.

Now that VoGlass has a relatively lower difficulty with the new 40 cap, they really should add a matchmaking playlist to it. Crota too? Perhaps with Ghost offering broad advice as to how to go about things in the absence of party chat?

600 hrs in and never raided. Slap that on the tombstone.

To err is human. The only 'gross misconduct' here is Nintendo's destruction of this man's life. No real harm was done and a written warning and public apology would have sufficed. I wish him all the best in what must be very difficult times :(

Destiny: The Taken King release date leaked

Luke_Martin_VA

3 years ago

I've spent ú80 on Destiny and have had around 250 hours of consistently enjoyable gameplay from that - with no end in sight. When I'm playing a strike for the Nth time, I'm not thinking about how many times I've played the map, I'm thinking about the meta-games I'm playing (levelling armour or weapons) or the AI behaviour or what team mate is in need or which ability or armour I should have equipped. The question of value in a traditional context is moot as Destiny is more than a 'game' to me - it's an experience that just keeps on giving. Like any experience, it won't appeal to everyone. Big deal.

So, yeah, bring it. My credit card's ready and waiting.

Destiny: House of Wolves review

Luke_Martin_VA

3 years ago

Re: value, ask yourself how much time you'll get from the content, as opposed to analysing the volume of content. I've ploughed an extra 25 hours in already and am not tiring yet. And that's just with one of my three characters. If you love the shooting mechanics and are up for the grind, it's absolutely recommended and worth the entry fee. Had more hours from this than most full price titles. The changes to loot frequency and nerfing of ascendant materials is most welcome. Multiplayer remains a blast.

I think what gets lost in the debate about Destiny's worth as an MMO is the fact that the shooting mechanics and minute-by-minute action are as smooth and addictive as anything else out there.

Sublime game.

Good game. Finished it last night. Classic Resi arcade action - although I think the OTT 80's gore was unnecessary. Something a bit more ghostly or other-worldly could have been just as if not more unnerving. Loved the constant shifts in reality though. Very dream-like.

Movie tie-ins used to be great. Instead of crow-baring the subject matter around the gameplay mechanics, they used to change the gameplay mechanics to suit the subject matter. Please can we have more games like this? Where each level is a different play style? It used to be so much fun!

I really like DriveClub. The tracks have a consistent, unique, high-speed-picturesque feel to them and I find its bare-bones approach refreshingly straightforward. I've grown very tired of the nauseating narrators, pointless upgrades and street-culture decorations that clutter the average modern racer. A classic game in the spirit of PGR IMHO. #kudos.
