Destiny 2's launch week uproar shows why developers need to talk about money

@Bombado Oh, I didn't mean that we as customers shouldn't know if there are microtransactions, just that, from the publisher's perspective, they might be better off not discussing it in-depth beforehand.

The problem is, if you talk about the micro transactions before the game is out people aren't able to see how invasive (or not) they really are and have to take the developer's word for it. Waiting until launch means people are able to find out about them, shout about how it's an outrage, and then realise they're not actually much of a problem. If they're revealed prior to release some people might never even give the game a try.

Spider-Man actor to play Nathan Drake in Uncharted movie - report

MatMan562

11 months ago

@Mar27w Just for clarification, Sony don't own the complete rights to Spider-Man, only the rights to his movies. Which is why Marvel can still make comics about him and why we'll probably see Spider-Man in the new Marvel vs Capcom. The Insomniac Spider-Man game is a completely different deal, hopefully it's great though!

What's going on at the end of Inside?

MatMan562

2 years ago

@internisus But the plug she puts into him has the same sort of lighting on it as the mind control helmets and after that happens the other people start following you exactly as they did when you were wearing the helmet even though you don't have it on. My guess is that the plug transferred that power inside you. Whether it's a power that controls him or that he controls I'm not sure of though.

BO3 had been a "Wait until it gets cheaper and I might pick it up" sort of game. Now I really want it! I loved playing the original one back in Black Ops! It's a shame the assets seem to be very similar (possibly exactly the same but it's been too long since I played it to tell for sure) but still, the new stuff seems cool.

Hopefully Nintendo will do the same with Professor Layton (another series I like the small amount I've played) and then I might be able to properly appreciate the cross-over game.

@George-Roper I believe that pretty much the sole reason for THQ's collapse was uDraw on the 360 and PS3. Obivously the crap games that didn't sell very well wouldn't have helped but I think THQ would still be around today if it wasn't for uDraw.

The other big improvement to Arkham Knight is no loading screens. "There is no feeling between outside and inside now," said Hill. "It's just one continuous experience."
This is exactly what I want from the new consoles! I'll take worse graphics if necessary, no loading in an open-world game is much more important imo.

They're saying everything right about Arkham Knight so far, let's hope it delivers on the promise!

Borderlands - The Secret Armory of General Knoxx

More of a full on expansion pack than your regular dlc, The Secret Armory of General Knoxx seemed to look at Borderlands and ask "What could this already great game do with?" It answered it's own question in true Borderlands style, "More!" And so, it added more story, characters, experience levels, weapons, shields, class mods, grenades, environments, missions, loot chests and vehicles!

The actual story itself revolved around General Knoxx and his mission to kill you even though, unusually, he didn't really want to. It was interesting to see the main villain of the story being so uninterested in you and what you're trying to do, as though you're an ant at a picnic that's just been ransacked by velociraptors. It fit perfectly in the Borderlands universe and led to a very funny final showdown.

To finish off the main storyline (of course, there's a load of extra side-missions), you get access to the secret armory that is filled to the brim with loot chests which, as any Borderlands player can attest to, are one of the best parts of the game due to the randomisation of every weapon you find. Unfortunately, the armory is about to explode and you only have a couple of minutes to stuff your backpack full of the best weapons you can find in this short space of time. It was a great design decision by Gearbox and led to some frantic looting. Do you go to the area with 10 regular chests or risk taking the time to make it over to the 4 rarer chests?

One of the extra side-missions included in this dlc unlocks after beating the main storyline. It's titled "You. Will. Die.". They aren't kidding. You have one objective in this mission and that's to kill Crawmerax The Invincible. This is a notoriously hard thing to do, even a fully leveled team of 4 armed to the teeth with some of the greatest weapons and equipment will have an extremely tough time with it. Usually, just one hit from him would instantly knock down my co-op partner and myself and, when you die, you have to ride a looooong elevator back to the top and if you don't make it in time before your partner dies, Crawmerax's health get's reset and you have to start all over again. After a few all-nighters of perseverance, swearing and a little bit of cheating, my friend and I managed it! Crawmerax exploding in a fireworks display of loot. Sweet, glorious, hard-earned loot! Very few things in gaming are as tough and rewarding as finally beating Crawmerax was.

And all of that is without going in to any details on the rest of the content that The Secret Armory of General Knoxx added and believe me, there is a load more of it! And all for the bargain price of Ł6. That's the sort of dlc I can get behind!

Minecraft out on PS3 this week

MatMan562

4 years ago

@enfilade I didn't think Minecraft would be for me either and playing a little of the PC version confirmed this, but I tried the trial of the 360 version anyway and after just 30 minutes of the tutorial I was hooked. I think once you've built yourself a smallish house you'll instantly want to improve it, and yourself, in every way possible and then you'll never be short of things to do in it. I'd definitely recommend giving the trial a go!

I really hope this will be cross-buy across at least PS4 and Vita!

It's both isn't it? Naked Snake aka Big Boss? It's just not Solid Snake.

So is this a completely seperate title to MGS V? Maybe a downloadable one to let more people try MGS for a cheaper price or something?

Is there any word on the Gray Fox dlc coming to the UK and how much it will be? Might be the first time I buy some dlc that's just a different costume.

On a different note, might it be that both Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain are both MGS5? I just have a feeling that we might get a couple more trailers/ reveals like those two for them to then say that they're all just different parts to MGS5. Unrelatedly I also think it might span a few different time periods.
