Paladins now free-to-play on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One

M83J01P97

12 months ago

It's more MOBA influenced than Overwatch influenced and in all honesty, it's not a great experience compared to other F2P games out there... but then those games aren't on consoles yet. Worth a try I guess, but I found it more than a little forgettable.

When a Counter-Strike gambling site offers to rig a bet for a YouTube star

M83J01P97

2 years ago

@carmagainagain It's nothing to do with YouTube, it's the people who have set up these gambling sites and Valve, to a certain extent, for allowing this kind of thing to happen unchecked that are to blame.

There is a video floating around on YouTube with a vlogger talking to a credible lawyer who basically points out that this is exactly what the people involved in this scandel will do. Instead of accepting the blame, they will turn on each other and blame everyone but themselves. Sad really that (apparently) grown men who have got wealthy off the appreciation of their fan base would go on to willingly take their money through shady gambling sites in order to inflate their wealth further.

Destiny leak reveals next expansion Rise of Iron

M83J01P97

Defiantly do not want this to be geared around PvP... Which is highly likely given its name. I'd consider that a big misstep in the wrong direction if they believe PvP in Destiny needs expanding. There were rumours a while ago that they would open up the big game worlds to free for all style PvP like in GTA Online...

You have to level up a new World of Warcraft character to get the next Hearthstone hero

It takes about an hour (or less if you know how to correctly grind in low level areas) to get to 20 in WoW now, so not sure why people are moaning.

Blizz have done much more challenging cross game promotions in the past for less of a reward.

Rust dev angers fans by announcing new prototype Riftlight

I'd be happy for an established studio with a good reputation to be saying those things in their defense. But a small time studio without a single, full release under their belt, using the Early Access way of getting their first game 'out there' probably should focus of getting that game done and dusted first before branching off into new projects.

Film and music companies pitching in to rescue HMV

M83J01P97

5 years ago

I think HMV need to move away with their obsession with selling technology products as well. My local HMV lost over half the space it used to have for DVDs/Blu-Rays before Christmas so that they could fit in a counter for iPads, MP3 players, headphones and so on. None of which are, again, sold at a competitive price when you check for the products online.

As awful as it might sound, I think they need to look at the 'discount store' model which is currently the only success story on the high street. Look at companies like Home Bargains, Aldi and The Works, these are shops which all sell at a large discount (and it's not just tat they sell now a days) and they are always boasting huge takings while everyone else on the high street struggles, and if distributors are willing to sell their products onto HMV at a reduced rate then it probably isn't as 'out there' as it might sound.

@bad09 it would be if, as the article suggests, distributors are willing to relax their prices, which in turn would allow HMV to compete more agressivly with online prices which has been one of their biggest problems for a while.

The Giant Bomb quick look for Captain Scarlett said it best, I'd much rather developers release quality DLC for a game while I am still in the process of playing it, instead of releasing something a few months after release when I've moved onto other games.

Borderlands 1 proved that Gearbox won't skimp on the quality of DLC (even the poor Moxxi DLC was fairly large, just not very fun).

Disappointed by this.

As fun as the co-op mode is, it would have been nice to have something a bit more substantial in single player mode. The Challenge Mode is just a leaderboard stuck onto a few random sections of the existing game, nothing new at all.

New puzzle rooms to play through like Portal: Still Alive had would have been much more welcome.

But I guess you get what you pay for... it being free and all :p
