Thankfully though, I've been completely convinced by the subtly sinister radio voices that these men are very, very nasty indeed.

Now, I have the motivation I need to murder these snowy hallway/ arena obstacles, fucking up bears with my Fisher-Price bow & arrow in the process.

Nintendo's painful metamorphosis leaves fans reeling

MisterCraig

3 years ago

We can talk about the 'flatness' of this event but really- who has stopped enjoying Nintendo's recent releases yet? Monster Hunter 4 ALONE has enough content to keep people engrossed until the leaves fall off the trees.

We constantly obsess over the weakness of Nintendo- I'd encourage people to go and get the best out of their AAA titles instead of demanding more games before even appreciating existing titles that should keep you busy all year. Save yourself the stress and the time (THE TIME- there's a commodity you won't get back) and play some amazing games. You know, the ones you started and didn't finish.

This consumerism frenzy that possesses both people and press at E3- there is a distinct lack of humanity, even common sense, that arises every year.

Troll deletes 11-year-old's Destiny characters

MisterCraig

4 years ago

I think this is something separate from kids playing games under the ESRB label.

We're looking at social media features that didn't exist when most of us were this kids age. Personally I don't know how I would react in this young lads position to an offer like Kermit's, because I was never in that position.

Ratings for games are always playing it safe, and every person is different. I played Perfect Dark way under the age of 18: my Gran bought me the game after watching me play it in store for 15 minutes and making her mind up. I sent my PS1 to a random guy's house to 'chip' it, allowing me to play copied games; the console came back in one piece with a pile of amazing games.

But none of that is relevant to how the internet affects children in gaming, and that is where the heart of the issue lies. As a parent I'd be far more concerned with my kid broadcasting online without my supervision. Frankly, getting your characters deleted by a troll is tame compared to some of the horrible acts that take place online, and we're in this generational shift where uninformed parents are unknowingly putting their kids in vulnerable situations.

If mainstream retailers like Game spent a little more time informing parents of the inherent risks to modern gaming consoles, rather then trying to coax more money from wallets, we'd minimise incidents like this in the future.

Apotheon review

MisterCraig

I genuinely think I need to be re educated on the ratings scale applied by Eurogamer.

If it played just a little tighter, Apotheon would be brushing up against greatness.
8/10
This review reads perfectly and gives a great impression as to what a consumer can expect. But the 8/10 score, coupled with that quote, skews my understanding somewhat.

At what point can we officially call this out as being more about the joy of picking up cheap games than the games themselves? I'm not sure, but I suspect Valve zoomed past it in a rocket ship quite some time ago, and if we can still see it, it's only because it's doing a victory lap.

Ultra Street Fighter 4 just got a lot more interesting

MisterCraig

5 years ago

@SpaceMidget75 I actually think they did release the update via download. The way I see it (and I am absolutely not targeting you) people get pretty upset over Street Fighter version X Y Z and feel they are being mugged, yet they splash out on CoD and Fifa every year, which are effectively the same game tinkered with.

SF releases have come once every two years. If you only bought Vanilla in 2009, then buying a new version in 2014 isn't that big a bite on the wallet.

It all boils down to how much you want out of the game. If you don't care how up to date the copy is, you could get Super Street Fighter 4 for about 5 and get all the lobby features you wanted.

The Secret Developers: Wii U - the inside story

What a sad story.

Having picked up a WiiU over Christmas I can certainly vouch for the potential of the console. Playing ZombiU and the first party games has been a truly amazing experience. Multiplayer Mario is a thing of beauty too!

I hope Nintendo do themselves a favour and give developers a chance; the room for creativity with this console is vast but you feel it might be wasted if Nintendo don't wise up.

Street Fighter 4 is so good maybe we don't need a sequel just yet

MisterCraig

5 years ago

Street Fighter to me took on a level of gaming beyond your regular Friday blockbuster. It runs far deeper than any FPS or RPG regardless of how well constructed they are. This also saved me a fortune once I realised every 'AAA' title I bought after SF4 was shelved within a fortnight when the itch to fight returned.

This fighter is a pleasure to look at and the gameplay - after putting in the time to better yourself - is so compelling that you can't resist the urge to dig some more. Whether it's learning a combo or beating someone who always seems one step ahead; there are countless stories told within 90 seconds of every round.

Scotland has a great scene supporting this game and if anyone wants to learn more they can visit VS Scotland on facebook or contact me personally on Eurogamer.

Those screens look fantastic but I wonder: how does it animate? The Walking Dead was home to some fascinating stills until it started to move and all of a sudden we had buggy interactions and awkwardly delayed camera cuts.

I'd like to think that with a bigger budget after its recent successes (I had my whole family playing TWD game and they loved it) they were able to fill the production gaps that stopped TWD from being seamless.

Still, I'm excited to play this and didn't even know it was on the horizon.

Amid growing anger at micro-transactions, CliffyB calls on gamers to vote with their wallets

MisterCraig

6 years ago

Bleszinski said game companies "exist to produce, market, and ship great games ultimately for one purpose. First, for money, then, for acclaim"
This is single most depressing thing I have ever read on this site.

Granted he may be talking specifically about the Activisions and the EAs of our generation. But I would challenge that statement over and over again.

You look at the likes of Thirty Flights of Loving, Braid, Dear Esther, Journey and other productions in this media and you don't even have to read developer commentaries and blogs to know that these are developers who care deeply about their work and have something important they want to say to the world using gaming as a portal.

It's not fuelled by greed (and that's exactly what we're looking at here, Cliff). It's fuelled by passion, which unfortunately in this world can only be sustained by money. But there is balance; Anyone who works on CoDCloneX and attempts to legitimise that purchasing in game currency to buy a better gun than some another person with less money/more common sense is a deep, rewarding and inspirational gameplay mechanic is off their nut. And Cliff knows it. Why would he advocate the desensitisation of our medium and throw more fuel on the fire?

All of a sudden I'm realising I don't give a fuck about this guy or his average games, and that he is a troll.

New Borderlands 2 patch protects against Xbox 360 save-corrupting "virus"

MisterCraig

As well as the badass rank bug, there is a game breaking freeze bug that makes getting past the title screen impossible. Mentioned this many times to Eurogamer but got nothing back.

Have to say the publication of these issues has been so hush hush it makes you wonder if there are prohibitions when it comes to reporting problems as serious as this.

Been checking the 360 forum page on a daily basis but the feedback has been so poor. Feel kinda left out from Gearbox and I was a huge fan of their work.

@jambii267 Pretty sure they had to get the reviews of the DLC out before reporting this. Afterall they can hardly take money from Gearbox/2K to have advertising everywhere on the site, and then tell everyone the game is broken before anyone buys it.

I'm not 'flooding' the comments section. I have simply posted once per boderlands 2 article in an attempt to get this knowledge public.

Does it not trouble you hear that Randy pitchford is deleting messages on his twitter asking about when the problems will be fixed? Just simply asking when; don't you think he's entitled to know that?

The negligence is widespread and it's up to us to have a voice and get ourselves heard. If you haven't been affected by the issues and can stomach reading one post per article giving mention to this problem then I would ask not to give me the finger on this one. Put yourself in my position: I pay 40 for a game that doesn't work and we don't get any word as to when we can play it for 3 weeks. And I deserve the finger?

Gearbox are staying mute on this and haven't offered a how or when this occurred and will be fixed. Frankly I'm tired of reporting this to different sites and chatting on the forum about it. Basically a relatively large minority of people haven't been able to play this game since day 1 and it's been 3 weeks with no support from Gearbox. Yet Randy and his colleagues are dishing out twitter and facebook advertisements on a daily basis.

And they're losing loyal Gearbox and 2K fans every day.
