Would an Apple TV kill the console business?

The great thing about the internet is that your average consumer is generally well informed. So good quality games and good quality consoles are not under threat from Apple and it's app marketplace.

The Elder Scrolls Online's main story is 100 per cent solo

Xardan

6 years ago

To be fair, a lot of MMO's are going the single player story driven route. It's what players are asking for, I don't see why people are surprised. Players dont like it when they have to team up to progress, and they like the story to have meaning and be believable. The Secret World is much like that and Guild Wars 2 looks to be the same.

This is why you do not buy games on release day regardless of platform. We are shown this time and time again.

Thankfully i am all but done with wasting money on new games and DLC and everything else.

Time for something better. I have learned my lesson and got the message. Bye Eurogamer! :)

Molyneux: "is Call of Duty all this industry really is?"

Xardan

6 years ago

If anything is clear, its that gamers do not want or like change. The 'core' harbor resentment towards Kinect and its marketed image, and feel they can not identify with it. Regardless of all that, we do need change and Kinect had promise to bring that to an admittedly stagnanting industry. The industry and its market do not appreciate such radical changes, as it currently is.

It's time to kick back against gaming bigots

Xardan

6 years ago

Oh dear looks like i offended some people with my 'white knight' comment. But that is exactly what you are, and more so proven by your reacting in such a way. I did not state i condone such behaviour towards a girl but merely stated the situation as it is. As a result i am insulted.

Ask yourself why you react in such a way, what compels you to such extremes? Why is this article such big news among the gaming community. Do you actually care, or do you just think you should?

It is because it is a girl. If the roles were reversed you would not be afforded the same consideration. You would not get any. Yet this girl has received massive attention and her 'aggressor' no doubt punished to extremes.

Fable Heroes Xbox Live Arcade game revealed

Xardan

6 years ago

I am disappointed but not surprised. Most RPG arcade games go this direction today. Just take a look at all the one's released last year with the colourful, light casual direction.

Unfortunately this must be the only way they can guarantee a profit, a casual fun RPG lite to appeal to as big an audience as possible.

No doubt people will blame this on Microsoft as usual, but it is deeper than that, the market has changed people and it is still changing. This is the 21st century.

Skyrim success motivates Remedy to stick with story-heavy games

Xardan

6 years ago

I am of the opinion that too much focus on story in a game can be detrimental to the overall experience. Games are not the best medium to tell a great story, we all know where to go if we want that. There are few games that can manage the balance perfectly, and even then the story is hardly noteworthy.

It is good that devs continue to push games and their ability to tell a story but i think they need to be more experimental, because as it is i dont see any breakthroughs in gaming as a story telling medium.

Even with a positive article on the 360, the comments are still negative. Microsoft cant do nothing right it seems. Nothing changed at Eurogamer then.

This is not surprising to me. I remember thinking back when watching the leaked playthroughs, how consolised it looks.

The view is up close 3rd person, simple interface, the movement and animations very action orientated. I think it would suit console play very well.

Just another example of this broken and rushed game, the Deflect Arrows perk in the Block tree does not work, also eating Tomato Soup seems to break my stamina bar permanently and my power attacks have no effect.

I regularly come across something broken in the game. Admittedly most are minor, but when you add them all up it is a very major issue indeed.

If a lot of the staff at EG really do feel like this then they need to start showing it in their reviews. Give another reissue of Call of Duty a 7 for achieving nothing new, or any other bland triple A shooter.

Raise your standards higher and dont settle for complacency. If reviewers continue to give good scores for the same game again and again, nothing will change will it?

The first half of this article is great, and puts into perspective how ridiculous it is saying its been a good year for gaming. Not sure what happened after that though, you came to the conclusion of buying a high end PC?! Graphics are not the issue here...

But anyway, bring on the next gen! Hopefully we will see fresh new exciting experiences! Although i doubt it, since pretty much everything has been done already. Just like the movie industry we have seen the Golden Age of gaming come and go, it is all downhill from here, there is nothing new left to be done.

Yep exactly. When a rushed buggy flawed game like Skyrim gets such huge success there really isnt any point in Devs taking time to polish and refine their game before release anymore. And lets admit it, Skyrim was most def rushed, neg all you like it is the truth, not that anyone gives a damn.
