Warframe's latest console update brings Ghoul hunting and customisable living quarters

I jumped to this after being gravely dissapointed with D2's endgame, took a while to get to grips with(dipping into the wiki/reddit is definitley needed), but now i'm 200hrs in and loving it. I'm a solo player and have soloed my way through most of the map (up to Sedna) so most of the content is definitely doable solo. Really enjoyed the story and have only spent £15 on plat and used the free plat from the psplus bonus package. I was always cynical of f2p games but DE have got something special here. Thoroughly recommended.

The only way I think Religion ever works is to combat the existential despair mechanic, which is generally proportional to the level of poverty in a country.

@Foxtrot-Oscar Did you read back what you posted? I suggest you leave gaming for a while, go outside and get some sun and fresh air and think about your life. Then come back, re-read your post and have another go. You can do it!

Middle-earth: Shadow of War has loot boxes

TheLittlestHobo

10 months ago

@RFturrican So you have played this new version? Yes, I don't question that you'll be able to get everything through play, but how long will it take? SFV does the same, you can earn everything in-game but you need to make it a full-time job to buy all the stuff on offer.

The jury is out on how these micro transactions will affect Mordor's gameplay granted, but this grey area is enough for me to remove the game from pre-order, and to wait until after release for reviews to break down the mechanics of this new system.

If it was just cosmetic then that wouldn't be so much of a problem, but now they're tied to actual gameplay then the game will need to frustrate the player in some way to make the loot box option a viable alternative. Compare multiplayer examples, such as BF 1, GTA Online which have terrible grindy slow progression to something like Titanfall 2 that is loot box free and has a much more satisfying level up experience.

It doesn't make sense to include loot boxes without this element of frustration as then what would be the point as no one would bother buying them.

Epic's Fortnite on UE4 plays better on Xbox One

TheLittlestHobo

10 months ago

@Mrsyms that's the free to play hook: Make it easy so you invest hours into the game. Then when you're deep into it ramp up difficulty and put in the pay-to-stop-grind/frustration features, by that time they hope you've sunk too much time in the game to want to quit.

How PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds emerged from the messy history of survival shooters

TheLittlestHobo

11 months ago

Surely Battle Royale games are now a genre? Survival shooter is like calling DOTA an rts. It's evolved and PUBG is leading the way. Cant wait until a AAA publisher wakes up and starts to compete. The genre has a lot of potential, look at Cryteks The, Hunt, or The Darwin Project.

No Man's Sky on PS4 Pro delivers the 1080p60 dream

TheLittlestHobo

1 year ago

Picked it up on the £14 PSN deal. I can appreciate what they've done for such a small team, but not enjoying survival mode. Constantly hunting for plutonium. Then when you do eventually get enough to launch and get into space your constantly being attacked. No idea how to improve my ship and is there an auto resource use option? Please tell me I don't have to manually open my inventory to charge up my suit/shields every time?

All in all I can appreciate what Hello games have pulled off, but wow was this not ever a full priced game. Well worth the £14 deal now though despite it's quirks.

European PlanetSide 2 PS4 servers are still down

TheLittlestHobo

3 years ago

I gave PSide 2 a go on the beta and was disappointed. First the menus looked like alpha and were laggy and also was frustrating to do a load out as it kept jumping to sniper class everytime I switched weapons.

But for me the gameplay felt empty, like a continuous sci-fi version of battlefield conquest, but with no end so it all just felt a bit pointless. Your just capping waypoints and retaking old ones repeat ad nauseaum. Big battles are cool, but when it finshes the base will just get retaken when it gets quiet.

Am I missing something?

I like Dying Light, nice seamless co op and good all round production with a nice feel between day and night. Don't take it too seriously and you'll have a lot of fun. Really and truly DL is the true Dead Island 2, just Deep Silver bought the brand. Be interesting to see Yager's take on zombies though as Spec Ops wasn't your run-of-the-mill shooter.

Evolve review

TheLittlestHobo

3 years ago

Not a bad review but really the only criticism seems to be the feel of combat?! I was hoping for more on what makes this game worth £50 and some comment on the dlc. Is the starting selection enough, does it feel stripped down? Slow pace of unlocks? Does it feel like a grind like say Battlefield?
