Destiny's The Dawning update is for life not just for Christmas

StrikeA

Sparrow racing gets boring way too quickly, the only time you're going fast enough for it to be exciting is as you hit a speed gate, but literally one second after that you've slowed back down, and a whole 2 new tracks to make the total 4? Yawn. Thank god Forza Horizon 3 only came out recently :)

Strike scoring is fun for 10 minutes or so, but it's still just the same content with the exception of a couple of slightly revamped strikes.

I know it's free so that's not what I'm moaning about, I'm just answering the question on Eurogamer's Facebook page of 'has this sucked you back in'. The answer is a definite no. Unless there's some actual new content then I can't see me playing much more Destiny until Destiny 2.

Sorry but Edwin's an idiot. DR4 is awesome fun, especially in multiplayer. Does he not have any friends to play with?

Xenoblade Chronicles X might yet have 2015's most impressive open world

Can't wait for this! Played it at EGX and really enjoyed my time with it :)

Decided not to bother with digital after seeing the download size was almost the size of the Wii U HDD. Instead I'll get the physical version, and just download the data packs to speed up load times.

270 Borderlands: Handsome Collection edition returns with top hat and moustache

StrikeA

2 years ago

@AmorousBadger Really?! XD I had the original disc version of Destiny (40), then grabbed the season pass (might have been 40, can't remember). When the latest DLC came out (Taken King) I thought seeing as I've spent so many hours on it I'll just sell on the physical disc version for 10 and grab the Taken King 75 version.

In total it's cost me 145 (40+40+75-10) and I've played 700 hours so that's about 20p per hour (hope I've worked that out right). I love the Borderlands series (even have all the comics) but there's no way I could spend upwards of 700 hours playing them.

@Ivattthestanier I love playing it either way to be honest. In single player, I get to take my time, explore and enjoy everything, whereas co-op is obviously great fun with mates, it kinda depends who you're playing with as some people make a habit of constantly rushing towards objective markers and not taking their time to soak it all in.

I got my i7 Alpha last year and placed it in my TV unit along with my other consoles... I played a couple of games through and then went straight back to my Xbox 'cos that's what all my friends play on, I don't think the Alpha has been turned on for at least a few months now :S

@Uncle_Leo I'm pretty sure if you boot the game up and check the season pass details it says all content to be released by summer 2015... well that's what it said when I last checked (a couple of months ago).

StrikeA

Since when was it a global launch on the 27th? Amazon and Game both have it down as the 30th of Jan and so does my local store. The Xbox digital store also has it down as the 30th of Jan.

If they want people to commit to buying digital games then they should sort the prices out, not try stuff like this!

AWESOME! I'm doing a massive playthrough at the moment (including reading all the comics and books) and it sounds like this will be the perfect way to finish it all off when I eventually get there (I'm about half way through Mass Effect 1 after reading Evolution and Revelation), can't wait! :D

EA putting micro-transactions "into all of our games"

StrikeA

5 years ago

Consumers are enjoying and embracing that way of the business.
REALLY?! I don't mind paying for DLC if it's a game I love, but even then I find it hard to part with my money as for years full games were standard retail price and you never had to pay for anything on top of that.

Microtransactions are just ridiculous, unless it's a decent bit of DLC (and by decent I mean really worthwhile) then why the hell would anyone pay upwards of 35 for a game to then spend another 20 or even more on extras for it? If the game was complete i.e. included all DLC/content and was 55 in the shop you wouldn't buy it would you?!

That looks terrible! :( I thought we were done with floating down ladders... I know it's not finished but still, isn't the idea of a gameplay/promo video to show the game off and make people want it? I wanted it until I saw the video, now if it doesn't get any better I'm not buying it!
