Far Cry 5 tops UK chart with biggest launch in series' history

Many lessons to be learned from this huge launch. But the one I wish people that matter take away from this is the following. Gamers have money all year round. Take advantage of that. Don't just release the awesome games in the run-up to Christmas.

@Jam_Pudding Personally speaking, I think something is better than nothing. I still get angry when I reported the first time someone called me 'ni**er' on XBL and I reported it 12 years ago. And basically got told, sorry, nothing we can do. I don't really play online anymore (not just because of that), but if they are being pro-active about it, I may yet let my son play online someday.

The original Xbox's oversized "Duke" controller has been revived, and returns this March

@BabyBabyBabyOh Of all the things I hated about the Duke controller, the right thumbstick was the one thing I hated the most! That tiny indent made my thumb slip off it more often than not. Why they couldn't keep the indent from the left thumbstick, only God knows.

But peace and love to all the Duke fans. Enjoy your purchase. I am out!

Great for the Spotify crowd on Xbox, without a doubt. Is it worth praying to the patron saint of streaming and ask for Google's Play Music app to appear on Xbox? No? Didn't think so.

I'm in. I like it. I do wish though that (and it is not just Volition) games in general would cater more for campaign co-op play. The Saints Row games did it awesomely. Why not here. I like playing with my friend through the campaign. Correct me if I am wrong, but only the Lego games cater for that now. And Halo, I guess. And Gears of War.

I like the game. It's not as good as DR3 or, my personal favourite DR2. Simply for the reason that it doesn't have a campaign co-op mode. In fact, very few games even bother with that now. For shame.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance: the last great licensed video game?

Vice.Destroyer

2 years ago

Two games I have both played and loved. Dan is spot on when he says that these guys have really gone above and beyond with their love of the subject matter and it really shows. The only other superhero games that give you so much additional comic book history and obscure characters are the Lego games. As the games were re-released, I decided to finally, finally get all achievements on MUA1.

First achievement popped in 2006. Last achievement popped in 2016. And each character souped up to level 99. From the entire roster, even the DLC guys. I have completed that game so many times, it is disgusting. Kudos, games makers.



And for the uninitiated, Mr Fantastic is the most powerful character in this game by a country mile. Use his buff to enlarge his fists and any attack kills in two hits, once you are the requisite level.

The Eurogamer Podcast - Superhot, Devil Daggers and The Flame in the Flood

Vice.Destroyer

2 years ago

Great podcast. And I get a shoutout. On the neverending question of whether or not Blue Dragon is better than Lost Odyssey. The thread itself is here. Eurogamer thinks that Lost Odyssey is better. I disagree respectfully. Poo should not turn a gamer off :)
At the 37:20 mark is where a little geeky gamer tear rolls down my cheek, like Denzel Washington did in Glory. First due to happiness for being name checked, and then due to anger for Lost Odyssey again getting undue praise.

Still, thanks for considering the question, guys.

Red Dead Redemption backwards compatible on Xbox One... for a few hours

Vice.Destroyer

2 years ago

@sloth09 I hear what you are saying. Don't get me wrong, I am not on board with the original vision. Taken as a whole it would have been awful for people that don't have unlimited internet. Or fibre.

All I am saying is that they hit a right note when working towards the convenience of never having to leave your couch to change a game. Every other negative aspect in regards to XBL downtime, HDD space, download speed, there were no solutions offered. Just a case of, live with it. It will be fine.

That's what I meant. I can't deny it sounded good on paper, but in practice it would have been awful for a lot of people.

Naughty Dog's Neil Druckmann on why Uncharted has to end

Topical satire of the moment:Vice Destroyer has negative things to say about Uncharted. But doesn't. He realises not every game is for him. And that others love it. And it is neither big or clever to try and dampen others enthusiasm for a game because he hates it. So he keeps his criticism to himself. Vice Destroyer is smart. Be like Vice Destroyer, commenters. Peace and love to all gamersOr words to that effect.

This is the second time that for the release date info for Crackdown only says this:

Release date: Multiplayer in summer 2016
I am probably missing something very obvious regarding the single player, but I do want to put the question out there. Is the MP arriving after the SP? Like GTA Online did in GTA 5? Is the word 'beta' missing in that sentence? Does anyone know?

Strangely enough, the question about whether Blue Dragon or Lost Odyssey is the better game has been raging in the forum since 2009. The majority of folk agreed with Bertie. I'm one of the few that loved Blue Dragon and didn't care for Lost Odyssey. It's been a long decision, but I like to think that I made people understand which was the superior game and why.

Xbox One and Xbox 360 Black Friday sale live

@lovely-Che That is true. But what is also true is that Witcher 2 and Bioshock Infinite were available on Games with Gold prior to E3. And because of that, I didn't download them. Missed out if you will. If it wasn't such a well-kept secret at the time of those games being on Gold, I would have got them.

After having fallen in love with Witcher 3, and missing out on getting Witcher 2 on GwG when it was available a few weeks ago (why was backwards compatibility such a well kept secret?), I am quite sad that Witcher 2 is not in the Black Friday sale.

@jameseyk1 Taken from the article, before the list starts. (With helpful link to the Major Nelson site) Major Nelson has the links through to every title, or you can browse the whole list below:

The reason that is done that way is that prices vary from region to region. Go to the link, land on the Xbox landing page appropriate to your region and see your prices.
