Destiny's nerfed Hunters really were OP

@goneski I would say the sunbreaker when it first came out was the most overpowered thing they've ever had in the game, including thorn. So titans definitely have had their day.

Destiny April update includes new loot packs and infusion changes

TheMilkman

@erp I totally agree. I think the game would be a lot better and would get much less criticism if they just did away with the random drop looter shooter style system.

The gameplay is enough on its own to keep people playing it IMO.

Pretty good stuff they are adding a combat roll but I'm not impressed with some of the other changes. When the game first came out it was a grenade fest and they fixed it - sadly it sounds like they are going back to barrage/impact nade days.

Destiny King's Fall raid challenge mode live, beaten in minutes

TheMilkman

3 years ago

Yaaay let's play for a number.

I've put a hell of a lot of time into Destiny, but the light level and random rolls on weapons killed raiding for me. No longer do people chase the famous fatebringer, or the elusive praetorian foil. Instead they chase a gun with the highest number on it. Doesn't really matter what gun, its the number I want.

Better than Halo?

TheMilkman

I like Destiny, but I feel like this article could have been comparing any game to Destiny, and not just halo. It comes across more as you don't want to play anything else, never mind just halo, as another game will just get in the way of Destiny.

I am the only person in this office who doesn't play Destiny

TheMilkman

3 years ago

The genius of it is that there is something to do for every mood.

I'm bored of it now. The raiding has stopped, the nightfalls have stopped, and I'm not bothered about light level or loot. I'll still play PvP but even with that I think they have ruined that somewhat with the new subclasses and their 30 second supers.

When I'm listening to music or a podcast or on remote play though, this game goes on. You can play it totally passively and that's its secret I think. I'll do a few bounties/gunsmith weapon things/daily story mission and all of a sudden a couple of hours has gone by while I've really been doing something else. That's how the engagement stays so high. Whatever level of intensity you play at, it just feels really good to shoot the guns.

FIFA 16 review

TheMilkman

3 years ago

I moaned like hell on this guys last article, but I just thought I'd say this one was far better, with a lot more actual detail.

I don't agree taste wise though. I thought Fifa 14 was a good game, but 15 was terrible. I really like the demo to 16, but PES is just really good this year.

Ea needs to just polish the controls for Fifa. There are just too many buttons to press for what should be a fairly simple game.

PES 2016 vs FIFA 16: a friendly comparison

TheMilkman

3 years ago

Really weird article this. Fifa was a million miles an hour last year, non stop end to end style. This year it's way slower and you actually have to build up a bit. I'd say the difference between 15 and 16 is pretty damn big rather than 'hardly changed at all'.

And to suggest Fifa has always been the slower and more realistic game is complete bollocks. Just literally factually incorrect.

I'm a big fan of the genre and you can always tell when the author of an article just plays the demo each year then doesn't really bother after that. Theres no helpful or interesting insight here at all.

Destiny: House of Wolves review

TheMilkman

3 years ago

@Jaybles I glitched into those areas myself and they are pretty much unrecognisable now.

I can see both sides of it. They were clearly already there so obviously it was already planned, which is a bit shitty, but on the other hand its not just like they opened the door. They considerably changed and improved those areas.

Overall I think the expansion is pretty great. The Trials of Osiris is just so good, and there seems to be a lot more to do now come reset day. Love the new crucible maps too, they are brilliant.

Only thing I would change would to be to include the chance of a treasure key dropping in the raids. Prison of Elders is okay, but its no raid and I'm not really up for doing it if there is no way I can open the box at the end. Whereas with the raids I'd do them loot or not.

I loved fut for ages. Ended up with around 3m in coins last year just through playing and canny trading. I got rid of the game after a month this year because its so terrible. Its just far too fast, there is no midfield play and it just doesn't play like football to me.

The speed has been an issue for years.

I know its fashionable to not like Destiny, but on every website I go on the forum has a huge Destiny thread with people still playing it every day so I think quite a lot of people do actually really like it.

It does disappoint in a lot of ways but its the best co op game I've ever played.

Sony cuts price of Game of Thrones and Tales from the Borderlands on PS4

TheMilkman

4 years ago

@BBIAJ I thought they stopped that and you need to keep Live to keep the games now.

I think Sony do have a say in the prices. The main PR guy for PES was banging on for ages about how Sony wouldn't let Konami reduce the price of PES on the store. They got it down by a tenner in the end but it was still 50 quid.

Just see what Eurogamers article did though. Do more of these articles! The prices on the UK store are ridiculous and should be lowered. Do an article about why the Destiny DLC is so expensive in the Uk compared to the US/Europe. We gamers need the help!

There's no mention of game modes here really at all. I've noticed this in nearly all the reviews I've read for this game, its as if the people reviewing it think people buy the game and just play exhibitions all year.

Is there going to be another review were career mode, Ultimate Team, Pro Clubs, seasons are actually described and reviewed? Its a big huge long review but I don't know anything about how or if the career mode has improved or if there are any new features at all, which is the one thing I wanted to know!

@The-Jack-Burton You can do all of that. Just press start and then L1. That brings up a friends list and also a list of all random people in the area, what they are doing, were they are etc. You can join/invite from there.

I love the game. I can see this being similar to Star Wars in that the critical reception might end up quite average but people just adore it anayway. Stuff like story/characters etc are just horrific, but it doesnt matter at all because the game plays so well. If this was a Nintendo game people would ignore the lack of sotry/atmosphere etc and say it relies on its pure gameplay. Devs other than Nintendo are never extended that courtesy though.

inFamous: First Light review

'...lovely to look at, but they don't mask the fact that you're not doing anything particularly new.'

One day I would love to see that sentence written in a review for a Mario game.

This is a well written review, but for me one thing it doesn't really get across is that for all the games faults it just plays really well. The controls, world traversal and combat are really good. It feels like that wasn't really important to the reviewer.

DICE ponders: what did people really like about Battlefield: Bad Company?

TheMilkman

4 years ago

I think it was because there were less air vehicles. When someone was in a chopper, you knew where they where and that it was all you needed to worry about. You could then form some kind of strategy to take it down.

Now it seems like every bastard is in some sort of plane/chopper so you just give up. Its overkill IMO.

Not bothering with this final team of the season. I've been lucky enough to get 3 team of the season players just out of regular 7k packs (1 in a free pack) this year so I think I've expended all my good luck. No, my coins will be waiting for the World Cup expansion. Whenever it turns up.

Its true what Tom says though, out of my 3 TOTS I got Raffael, Toulalan and Aduriz. Not exactly Messi and Ronaldo.
