Star Wars: Battlefront 2's new Night On Endor update lets you play as an Ewok

White_Westie

2 weeks ago

I finally bought this game the other day after the micro transactions issues and it's been balanced more.

Where I live took a day to download the 18gb update...

So hoping to play this weekend when the wife is out.

The old days I'd be a day one purchaser (when I had money and no wife lol!) but now I'm happy to wait a few months whilst things get patched up and the debates happen.

The only day one purchase I have planned this year is red dead redemption 2, as rockstar typically churn out quality over quantity and post live support is excellent.

Best dig the headphones out for the experience of star wars today....

Never purchased it, over priced and I dislike having to purchase again!

Having said that I'll wait for the next update after this and see if its worth a purchase then at a more reasonable price (and no micro transactions)

EA not giving up on microtransactions in Star Wars Battlefront 2

White_Westie

5 months ago

I've not purchased this yet until they've Confirmed about micro transactions. I can't justify buying a game to buy more bits unless they add value such as dlc extra content maps.... And even those need to be justified and of interest not because they have been cheap on release (ie release 2 maps and then another 4 as dlc, I'd wait 9 months until it was a bargain)... Cheap I know....

Xbox One X looks stunning - but we need to see more

White_Westie

10 months ago

Not wanting to sound anti ms, as I genuinely like their products, however it's just doesn't feel ground breaking.

I got excited for a second on the 4k...then read that the forza team where running at, 30fps. A talented team too.

Being greedy, I would have paid a little more for 60fps and 4k hdr. It feels like a compromise to me.

Choose 4k...or choose 60fps. I'd like both...

So for me I'll wait a year or two and see if it drops in price.

Also... Games? Exclusives would be nice, and something to really push it out there. Something new and original... Not the same old new versions of gow , halo etc.

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands review

1 year ago

I must be one of the sad few that purchased this then and looking forward to playing it tonight... I like to drop in and out of games and just have a bit of a relax and fun. Casual ... (read: husband with many jobs to do...)

It does sound a little like far cry to me mixed with other elements, rinse and repeat, and I really enjoyed that... Same for assassins creed unity / syndicate etc. (shows my taste eh!)

Looking forward to playing this with a few beers and a few friends. As for the politics etc... I have bbc news for that, I just want some escapism... Awesome.

Beneath Assassin's Creed Unity's bugs lurks a surprisingly human game

White_Westie

3 years ago

@FallingStickman me too pal. I thought unity was one of the best assassins creed games I'd played.

I played after all the bug fixes and bought it for 20. Best money I paid.

Game is full of atmosphere, the detail is fantastic and you feel like you are in a living city.

I loved walking through the buildings and watching the people. Sometimes I'd just sit and watch it.

Wasn't keen on black flag though...

As unpopular as it is one of the greats for me. I can't even part with it for a trade in as I love the city that much!

I'll pick it up once it drops in price which is pretty much what I do with every game now.

Love elder scrolls games so I will get it but once it's cheaper and the reviews come in and say the severs are stable...

@StooMonster yes I'm completely staying that. I'd like the legislation.

You are taking the depreciation of a product though to an extreme and wasn't what I commented on. Stay on focus pal.

Yes I believe that if I purchased a product digitally or physically I own it.

Obviously you don't so let's agree to disagree. As you feel this way, I'm More than happy to take all your digital purchases in your life for free. I'll Start with iTunes and all your steam library,since they are all provided via a service.

There should be some type of law that states when shutting down these type of service where people have purchased digital content, that they are refunded the total of their digital purchases.

It's just like playstation home too. People purchased content. Now they cannot enjoy their legal purchase

This feels just wrong for those that have purchased but no legislation to protect the public.

I've got this on Pre order for 35... I'm going to give it a try and see how it goes.

If it tanks I'll put it on Ebay and watch some unsuspecting victim buy it whilst making a couple of quid loss.

I like cops and robbers, it reminds me of my days as a kid (I prefer doctors and nurses though!) so I hope this is ok.

I was absolutely pants at the multi player beta. I'd really like (as someone mentioned above) the bad company multi player... It was fun, And total destruction really brought some great moments. The new engine feels like a step back in some aspects such as that to me.

Oh and I'd like servers with age ranges! I'm getting old and can't keep up with the cod kids that twitch and your dead!

Eurogamer has dropped review scores

White_Westie

3 years ago

As controversial as it is I like scores... I think sure have the recommendation system, but why not put a metacritic average on the bottom then.

I've noticed the 4 systems, 3 being recommendations with the 4th being to put nothing on there (I. E the order 1886, you guys could be in politics with the opinion of no opinion being the opinion! )...

It feels more like a few mates chatting about games now, which is good, but If I'm being honest I will miss the scores. I've already starting looking at other sites for the scores I miss.


I know it's all subjective, however just how I feel, I'm sure it the long term it'll make sense, just my opinion that's all.

@drhickman1983 you should get assassins creed unity, they've put a few fixes in...

I didn't get it day one, I got it last month and I've got to say as unpopular as it is, it's one of the best games I've played in a while.

I've not really seen any glitches (ps4) probably due to the patches .. I bought it for 20 which I think was a bargain.

At 20 for new, you could put it on Ebay if you wanted but I find the world and buildings immersive and it actually feels lived in, rather than dumping a few characters here and there.

I'm about 20% into the game.

Give a try, you won't be disappointed (well I'm not on ps4)

Windows 10 is a free upgrade for those with Windows 7 or 8...

I'm not a big pc gamer, I'm an occasional one, I'm sure for the frequent gamers they may love it, but for me.. I'll pass for now and stick with my free windows 10 upgrade.

The evolution of Xbox One - as told by the SDK leak

White_Westie

3 years ago

I got the x1 on day one I got it as I'm pants at multi player games and I thought with its smart matchmaking, that in some games I may last more than 2 minutes without getting killed.

I'm sure I saw a marketing piece from Microsoft going on about the smart matchmaking it certainly does not feel like it at the moment .

I think someone told me that game devs had to put it in their code, so it's pretty poor of ms to advertise it as a feature as its optional.

Having said that ms have driven the console forward and it was from them driving it forward that they stopped me from selling mine.

I think Sony has a little catch up to do so it'll be interesting how it pans out in the next year...

As for now I think the difference from day 1 to now is good, however I will never buy a day one console again as it lacked features, was expensive and felt released in a half done state.

Fingers crossed they both up their game a little more.

As for next gen, both ps4 and xbox one although I enjoy them , I feel they are current and a half. Not 10 years plan next gen.

Perhaps it's rush modes on the xbox one for every map with more than 10 players on it..

Can live and dream I guess....

How difficult it is to find an official rush mode for all expansion maps is near impossible for me. Even dragon rising.

Open Nat, etc..

If I select quick match on those settings I may as well not bother...

Ps unless other xbox one owners are not having the same quick match rush issues of getting into a game with more than 10 people? Let me know if you aren't!
