The Witcher 3: Hearts of Stone doesn't quite fulfil its expansion billing

SolidSCB

3 years ago

So new missions in existing areas is suddenly a practice worth making a fuss over. Funny, considering Destiny has been heaped with praise for doing the exact same thing for the last 12 months.

Destiny: The Taken King director defends 40 expansion price tag

SolidSCB

3 years ago

Deleting this game off my hard drive last week was the best thing I could have done for myself. The way they have chopped this game up to monetise it is one of the most egregious things I've ever seen in the industry. Players have effectively been paying stealth subscription since launch for spoonfuls of content every 6 months. The way they have blocked us day one Destiny players from extra content unless we pay for stuff we've already bought once is just the cherry on the cake.

Unfortunately, this will probably be a massive success. This sort of pricing structure will be the norm in a couple of years time and people will only have themselves to blame.

Bungie nerfs Destiny's magical loot farming Treasure Cave

SolidSCB

4 years ago

How's about providing some fucking content so we don't have to shoot at a cave then? I'd be more than happy spending my endgame playing through strikes to obtain loot if there were more than six of the things. Even the timed events just involve playing through the same basic content you've already been through a number of times over and over. The reason many of us have been shooting at the cave is so we aren't utterly bored of the same old strikes by the time we are a high enough level to try them at challenging difficulties, because that is literally all there is to do with the high level gear.

Oblivion Horse Armour DLC

The neigh-sayers may have claimed that only foals would buy this DLC, and it certainly helped stirrup the emotions of the gaming community. It may not have been the mane piece of DLC to be produced for this game, but it ensured my horse was well dressaged for my travels around Cyrodiil. Before I bale, I just want to say I'm glad I was one of the few to pony up for this.

Thank you Oblivion. You may be pasture prime now, but I'll alway remember Horse Armour.

The music is utterly terrible in the PC version. The MIDI files sound as though someone has composed the score on a Nokia keypad yet the review mentions absolutely nothing of this.Oh, and on a side note, an 8? Scores mean nothing to me personally but surely EG is entering self-parody territory now.

Add a bit more depth and they are onto a winner. Haven't had as much fun in a multiplayer game as I did chasing the WWF championship along with a couple of friends and the crazy feuds, match types and stipulations the AI would dish out.

New Splinter Cell: Blacklist video shows off controversial torture scene, moral choices

As for all of you spouting about context, perhaps you should understand the context in which this event is happening in the game before you pass judgement. A mountain over a molehill if you ask me.Also, if EG had have just popped up the trailer without a controversial headline or quote, I doubt a single person would have piped up about the scene in question.

Meh. Seen far worse stuff in videogames and I'm fairly certain this isn't the first instance of using torture to get information from your enemy in one. Funny how people can quite easily seperate different morally questionable acts when it fits their agenda. "I love the fact that you can perform Violent Act A in this game series I like, but the fact that you can perform Violent Act B in this game series I don't like leaves me morally outraged".

andrewsqual wrote:@SolidSCB Actually before the "Revengence" and Platinum games being involved announcement, it was stated that you could get through the whole game without being detected. Then radio silence for almost 2 years before the game was re-announced again. So yes it was stated to be a stealth game before but not since last Dec when the game was re-revealed to be developed by Platinum.Yep. I meant since it was handed to Platinum. Poorly worded on my part there.

Really looking forward to this. I don't understand why people are complaining about the move away from stealth. This has never claimed to be a stealth game, to the point where they had to change the title to get the message across. Think people should just enjoy this game for what it is. If you don't like the genre switch, fair enough, but the game isn't claiming to be sonething it's not.

Mass Effect 3 DLC suggests further changes to ending

SolidSCB

Honestly don't care anymore. I was soured before ME3 released by the fact that I'd have to pay extra for a character that was pivotal to the plot, I was further soured when the ending negated all of your choices into a Deus Ex Machina fuckfest. This continued into a cheap 5 minute piece of DLC to paper the cracks and now they are asking extra for another chunk of the main storyline. Balls to this.

Ubisoft intends to rid Assassin's Creed of Desmond... eventually

SolidSCB

6 years ago

You're wrong. While the majority of the games revolve around the assassins in the past, Desmond has absolutely always been the central character in the development of the series, with the game even going as far as to 'speak' to Desmond in the future through Ezio. The whole premise of Assassins Creed is to use information from the past to halt a crisis in the present day. It's fair to argue that you don't enjoy the present day sections or personally don't see the point of having them, but to say that the present day sections aren't absolutely crucial to the plot tells me you haven't taken a whole heap of notice in the series so far.
1 0

SolidSCB

6 years ago

Wait, isn't Desmond's story absolutely central to the entire plot of Assassins Creed? I thought the whole point of every Assassins Creed game so far was to A) Find information crucial to the present day guys that has been lost in time and more importantly B) Condition Desmond in the arts of the Assassin so he can deal with the modern day Templars.I've been buying these games on the back of a future huge payoff in the form of a full blown modern day game starring Desmond as he attempts to stop the Templars and halt the impending crisis.So Ubisoft either were making it up as they went along or have grown comfortable with the model of releasing pointless yearly updates.Think I might just be done with this series now. Shame, as I thought as useless to the plot a few of the games have been, it was sauntering towards something special.

Love Platinum Games' work and I'm a whore for Metal Gear games so this is my most anticipated game of 2013. Going to be interesting to see Metal Gear go in a new direction, hopefully it'll be a good enough and popular enough game to get a little side series going. I'll say this though, it looks seriously impressive on a technical level. Hardly surprising given the level of polish all Kojima Productions games are treated to, but good to see Platinum Games have been given the time and trust to keep it at that level.Seen enough now. Time to go on a media blackout until the game is in my hands.

Why does everything have to be milked by companies(or the devs in this case) and news outlets reporting on them in the initial wave of hype? A couple of months down the line, a really good project is going to miss out on being funded because everyone is sick to the back teeth of the term 'kickstarter'. It's time to seperate the wheat from the chaff EG. It seems every time you're in need of a quick article you fire up the kickstarter website and type 'game' in the search bar.
