A Way Out review - humdrum crime with a co-op twist

Retry90

2 months ago

I think this is harsh. We had a very enjoyable 6-7 hour play through and thought we had value for money, with a fairly decent story and plenty of fun hidden things to see/do. Will probably play through a second time to choose the other options and see the alternate ending.

I'd certainly pay for some DLC or buy a sequel - here's hoping the developer does so!

Destiny 2 free trial goes live today

Retry90

6 months ago

@night_swim I agree. I had an absolute blast in the first 50-60 hours and not disappointed with my purchase at all.

It's true there is definitely a lack of end game at the moment, once you get bored of the same challenges, nightfall/raid and PvP taks, but I'm not sure how many hours of play people are expecting for a 40 game.

I will pick up the expansion and see what they have added and when I get bored, I'll put it down again for another month or two - just like you would with any other 40 game.

@IamUrple Indeed, though I would say MOST Destiny players.. not all. I'm pretty satisfied with what I've paid for so far.

As a new-to-Destiny player, I'm really struggling to understand the logic of people calling the game "thin". I've played about 40 hours, slowly exploring, doing adventure missions, public events, patrols, playing PvP, strikes, not even touched the raid or trials of the nine yet. There's also 3 characters you can run through the game with.

40 hours of entertainment so far for 40.. what does a cinema ticket or similar cost nowadays, 15 for an hour and a half / two hour film? Video games, for the most part, are still one of the best value-for-money forms of entertainment around.

People also seem to forget that this only came out a month or two back. Didn't Destiny 1 slowly add features and activities to do via expansions and updates over the course of a year or two?

If you don't like the base principle of the game - shoot, loot, explore, repeat - then this game probably isn't for you.

My only minor gripe is the lack of varied enemy types but hopefully that will get added to.

Destiny 2 gets more downtime tonight

@SonicUk Or it could be the fact that Bungie are based in Washington, so their staff start work at that time?

I agree it's slightly inconvenient for a few hours but it's not some conspiracy against Europe!

Isn't the maintenance once per week, for a couple of hours? Yes it falls at a bad time for UK players but to say it's 'down more than it's up' is a little bit OTT.

You could, y'know, just play another game for a few hours!

Diablo 3 Review

@liamaland So basically you're complaining about things that havn't actually affected you? Hearsay.

Sure there are a few bugs, welcome to modern game development. Skyrim anyone?

@liamaland You are very dramatic. 'Servers down most of the time'? - Yes there have been issues but they've not been down THAT much.

Game has never de synced for me, and I have been looking at most achievements as i've got them.

If the game is that bad, how/why have you played up to the point of getting 'legendary' items, which is at least 20 hours of play time..

Hmmmm...

Not been this addicted to a game in a long time.

I've only had a few hours when I was unable to play, so it does 'Work' imo.
Very polished, slick, fast and fun.

People complaining about the graphics make me chuckle too, it looks fantastic.

I kind of wish there was a couple more 'Acts' but apart from that its brilliant.
Solid 8/10.

Error 3006: players discover game breaking bug in Diablo 3

From Blizz:

Hi everyone,

We've just made some changes to the login system in order to try and work around this, can you please try the game again and see if you still receive Error 3006?

It might also be a good idea, before re-logging, just to try flushing your DNS once more too:

Power off your modem/router for 5 minutes, turn it back on and then perform this command.

Windows XP:
- Click Start and then Run
- Type cmd in the run box and click Ok
- In the Command Console window that has appeared type: ipconfig /flushdns
- After typing the above command, press Enter to execute it and then close the window

Windows Vista / 7:
- Click Start, then Programs, then Accessories and then locate 'Command Prompt'
- Right-click on 'Command Prompt' and left-click on 'Run as Administrator'
- In the Command Console window that has appeared type: ipconfig /flushdns
- After typing the above command, press Enter to execute it and then close the window

See if that helps anyone.

Diablo 3 servers "at full capacity" following midnight launch

All you complaining; grow up.

This happens at almost every major game launch. You simply cannot predict the stress on servers, no matter how much testing you do. A few hours from your lives waiting to login to a game which true fans have been waiting for around 7 years is nothing. Go sleep. Eat. Feed your children. Take a walk in the park.

To me the demo has been great. I thought they may mess this up but so far it's awesome, fluent, fast paced. I'm actually going to say Thankyou to EA for a change, they've done a really really good job with this.
