God of War review: astonishing technological craft in the service of simple pleasures

I don't normally like to pre-order but the reviews this is getting have convinced me to take the plunge! How nice to have something reviewed over a week before release too :)

Overwatch hero 27 in the spotlight as the teasing begins

Zombie-Hamster

I saw a suggestion that it may be Brigitte, Torbjorn's daughter. Might make more sense given the letter that's mentioned, and also her appearance in Reinhardt's short film? She would probably also make sense as a defensive character if she takes after her dad!

PlayStation Plus price hike announced for Europe

Zombie-Hamster

10 months ago

Definitely time to look out for some deals, no frigging way I'm paying Ł50!

Edit: Not so much the cost itself that's an issue, more the percentage increase for me. Given how many subscribers there are, that's a whole lot more wonga. I just hope they do use it to improve the service as the store and downloads in particular are pretty poor performing generally.

Mass Effect: Andromeda review

Zombie-Hamster

1 year ago

@sizu Not sure why I should have to justify my comment, but since you asked so nicely, here...

First off, I haven't just read one review, I've read a few and they all seem to share the same issues with it, not least the fact it's a bug-fest.

I don't have that much time to game but loved the original trilogy in spite of the ending, so was keen for this to be good. From the content of the reviews I've read (note, NOT because of "low" scores/lack of tag here), which is mainly what I have to go on in order to make a decision (surely the whole point of reviews in the first place!), it sounds like a pale imitation of what's gone before so with all of that in mind it doesn't seem a sensible purchase.

As for dinner, he recommended human flesh with fava beans and a nice chianti, so while I trust his review, I'm now slightly afraid of him... I do like a glass of chianti though...

GAME is having trouble with launch day Nintendo Switch deliveries

Zombie-Hamster

1 year ago

Not to rub salt in the wound for those impacted, but when I pre-ordered mine, only a couple of weeks back, I went through all online shops that said they still had pre-order stock (including GAME!!), thought nah GAME are bound to make a b@lls of it, and ordered elsewhere. Switch arrived at 11am this morning...

Sony's 2017: steady as she goes as PS4 goes big on games

Zombie-Hamster

Persona 5 will likely be more than enough for me but still very keen on Horizon, the UC4 DLC, and interested in how Hellblade will work out too.

A quieter year would actually suit me though, for all the negativity around 2016 it was a pretty fine year on the games front, leaving me with an even bigger pile of shame than usual!

Eurogamer's game of the year 2016

Zombie-Hamster

1 year ago

I rarely spend much time online, and until recently didn't have the broadband for it either, however fibre arrived a month ago and I just bought Overwatch. Even coming to it late, I've engaged with it straight away, and love that I have a chance rather than being dead in a flash as with some titles. It has personality to burn as well.

It's been a great year for games and so far at least, I completely understand this result.

Bethesda's anti-consumer review policy comes as no surprise

Zombie-Hamster

2 years ago

The slight irony here is that from everything I've seen and read about Dishonoured 2, it's shaping up to be an awesome sequel to an already superb game. I doubt Bethesda particularly needed to take this stance.

As many others have said already though, there'll be no pre-ordering by me either, not that it's something I tend to do now anyway. I can wait, my ever-increasing pile of shame tells me so...

GAME charges people to try PlayStation VR in its shops

Zombie-Hamster

2 years ago

Well that at least makes it even easier for me to look elsewhere!

I think what annoys me most about this is that many people may want to try just so they know if it'll make them ill. So they're preying on those who can't buy it basically, or who fear it may not be for them.

PlayStation Plus' free September offerings include Journey, Lords of the Fallen

Zombie-Hamster

2 years ago

Surprised at some of the negativity here. LotF isn't amazing but it's far from bad I'd say, and I would have thought a good fit for PS Plus as it's one a lot of people might've missed or shied away from buying.

Journey is an amazing game, so well worthy of being on the list. Only downside for me this month is that Vita games and Datura aside, I have the games already. Good month though.

PlayStation Plus' June freebies include Gone Home and NBA 2K16

Zombie-Hamster

2 years ago

There really is no pleasing some people is there! Best month in a fair while by my reckoning. An AAA title that's meant to be excellent, and is one that perhaps fewer people in Europe will have bought, along with Gone Home, a title that's received critical acclaim from many, many places. I'll admit I'm biased as I looked at this and thought it was an outstanding month. One title I planned to get but hadn't got round to, and another I wouldn't have bought but will now definitely try.

I won't disagree that there have been some very weak months recently, but this looks like a giant step back in the right direction to me, on PS4 at least.

Rise of the Tomb Raider review

Zombie-Hamster

3 years ago

Wow there's some vitriol in here today! I can't be the only person who read the review and thought, fine it may not be the best game ever but it sounds right up my street, even with some shoddy story and acting, will definitely play it...

I'm pretty sure there's no need to get so angry about a review disagreeing with your perception of a game, and the lack of a recommended/essential tag does not mean it's unworthy of your time.

Rather than this review being wrong, could it just be perhaps that EG demands more, and as such is more critical, especially where they perceive the game is aspiring for more itself? If you don't like that, nobody is forcing you to visit or read the articles or reviews...

And while I'm at it! To those suggesting bias, perhaps read the reviews of The Order: 1886 and DriveClub.

I'm not suggesting EG is infallible or above criticism because of course it isn't and shouldn't be, but just seems to me that way too much emphasis is being put on a tag, or lack of, which is sad considering that avoiding this sort of nonsense was what drove EG to end their scoring system in the first place.

For me it's just franchise fatigue. It's a great series overall but I need a break and there are other, fresher experiences to be had elsewhere. I may pick this up down the line but not in any hurry.

That said, it's really about time digital sales were included as any figures aren't necessarily a true reflection otherwise

Transistor free via PlayStation Plus in February

Zombie-Hamster

3 years ago

Gotta say I'm well chuffed with this line up! I've been meaning to pick up Transistor and was thinking about Rogue Legacy as well. I'll never understand the "I hate Indies" comments...

Everyone does realise that "indie" just means self published right? It's not a genre... So saying you hate them basically means you hate pretty much most game varieties out there. In fact given that this gives them more creative freedom, it kind of reads like you're saying you hate anything original which is a shame. I love me some AAA action but couldn't be happier with how things are shaping up on the games front right now.
