@woobstick Agreed. This is underwhelming at best. I adore this game, its my favourite of all time, but this just isn't an interesting proposition when I can just play the original on PC. If they had reworked the obviously (confirmed?) unfinished latter parts of the game then I'd be there in a shot.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 progression overhaul finally revealed

Wyrm

1 month ago

@ihnm_aims They can, but the fact they have actually listened to us and changed things should be applauded. They could have easily sat there and said 'screw you, this is how games work now'. The average consumer doesn't know a thing about the Reddit protests etc. EA have lost a lot of money over this no doubt. That is all they understand and there should be no issue with buying the game now - be sure they will be looking at how sales figures are affected by this change...

What should we expect from Dark Souls Remastered on Switch?

If it's just a minor graphical overhaul, I don't really care. DSFix is fine.

If they were to rework the lackluster end sections of the game such as Lost Izalith I'd be there in a flash.

In Theory: Can a Switch hardware revision extend its lifespan?

Wyrm

1 month ago

Yes.

Itís too heavy, battery drains too fast and takes too long to charge, the control sticks are crap, charge port is in a stupid place, the stand is too flimsy, I want to be able to use Bluetooth headphones...

But absolutely the weight is an issue, itís far too heavy for a handheld, went back to my Vita afterwards and it felt like it might float away, it was lovely.

Dispelling the myths of Bloodborne

Wyrm

1 month ago

@gravythief Bloodborne is standalone, it has nothing to do with the Souls games in terms of plot. It's a good point to jump into though as it's faster and more focused on action. It's also got a very streamlined RPG side to it, the Souls games allow for way more diverse character builds, Bloodborne doesn't really offer that, which does hurt its replayability somewhat.

@8itmap_k1d Indeed. The Souls games are very special to me, but everytime I hear someone say 'they're not really that hard', I do bristle a bit. Those people have clearly forgotten what it was like playing DeS/DaS at launch when the series was new and nobody had a clue what they were doing - yes, they were hard and they will be hard to any new player who hasn't spent hundreds of hours on them!

Wyrm

@Hirox @Kili102
Absolutely. It's one of the most horrible practices in modern gaming that for some reason never gets the same level of ire a lootbox does and I can't fathom why. If I had a permanent account for Nintendo like I do Sony where all my purchases are catalogued and in some cases available across multiple platforms from a single purchase then the ridiculous prices they charge would be much easier to stomach.

Nintendo Switch is getting Dark Souls Remastered

Wyrm

3 months ago

The big question I have is what is being Remastered? Is it just the game in the DKS3 engine or are they actually reworking sections? Late game areas like Lost Izalith were obviously never finished to the standard of the early game and there was a whole load of cut content... is this going to be in there or is it just MORE POLYGONS?

EDIT: Mind boggles why this was downvoted, it's a genuine wondering about an area in the original that was rushed and unfinished. I suppose ignorance is a problem here!

I backed it, I'll wait and play it when it's done.

Why should you get anything related to Starcraft 2 for free??? It was a full game made by Blizzard to AAA standards, it had a price tag. How many other companies would ever give something like that up for free when they could realistically sell it for a discounted price? Crazy criticism...

Overwatch boxes are cosmetic. Hearthstone is FREE. I have played lots of both to their full extent and not spent an extra penny on either. And as for Diablo 3, they held their hands up and said they were wrong. These examples are incomparable to what is going on with Battlefront 2.

New World of Warcraft expansion Battle for Azeroth announced

@FortysixterUK Release for this has to be a while off yet, 7.3 still has plenty of legs left on it afterall. Given how they seem to have their schedule tighter than the last two expansions though, you'd have to think best case scenario is late summer?

As for Classic sub... I doubt anything they could do would be commercial suicide, people will pay for this if they have to. I would imagine it might be a slight increase to have access to Classic servers as well as live, like getting the UHD option on Netflix. Perhaps with the option of a cheaper Classic-only sub too.

@Daeltaja They know exactly what theyíre doing. Legion brought back the idea of class identity, this is obviously an attempt to bring back faction identity using story threads they have been setting up two expansions ago. They have also set up the future direction of the game through the void lords and the separation of dark and light. WoW is extremely healthy right now, it may not be for you, but donít try to argue that this company hasnít got any ideas left.
