Sea of Thieves review - a Rare treasure

_LarZen_

It's a fantastic game. But it's not for everyone. I'll bet that most gamers complaining are the same that thinks Minecraft is the most boring game of all time. With nothing to do. Zero imagination and playfulness.

Sea of Thieves lands UK chart number one

Sea of Thieves seams to have divided gamers. It's an interesting game to read about in social media. For every negative comment a positive pops up. For every player complaining (somewhat rightly so) about lack of content and nothing to do. Another praises the game for the fun they are having with it.

It somewhat reminds me of the early days of Minecraft. You had creative playfull players having a blast. While others thought it was trash. Many still do to this day... Minecraft. One of the most incredible games in decades.

I'm not saying Sea of Thieves will be anything near the phenomena that is Minecraft. But as said. It reminds me of early days of Minecraft with the divided player opinions.

Sea of Thieves' Final Beta is here, open to everyone on Xbox One and PC

@Hellothereagain That's strange. I have both the Pro and the X. And seeing how the Pro hardly can deliver any 4K games I've been using my X much much more then I ever thought I would do as I have been primarily a PlayStation guy for the past decades. With all new games looking best on X. And with more and more old games getting X support I cant see myself going back to my Pro except to play the biggest and best exclusives it has. Thankfully I can blow the dust of it soon as Ni No Kuni 2 and God of War comes out. But after that...it's power off again for months...

Not often if ever I get angry by reading a game review. So congratulations on achieving that. One of the reasons I've been a reader of articles from Eurogamer is because you skipped all the idiotic nonsense.

@edhe No games like this are not meant to be played for a couple of weeks and abandoned. This is an online game. Where the interaction with others is key.

Much like so many popular online service-based games these days that go on for years with content and a steady growth of players.

Call of Duty: WW2's first DLC pack is just what the game needs - and that's why it should be free

_LarZen_

With the amount of microtransactions nonsense I have to deal with in the game. The last thing I will be doing is buying a DLC for more maps. Releasing this DLC and upcoming DLC's just means I will stop playing the game sooner then later.

If that's how Activision wants to have it then fine. I'll just trade the game at Gamestop.

The Witcher 3's Xbox One X patch delivers in spades

_LarZen_

4 months ago

Well one thing is certain. I will go with the 4K 30fps option. ~1080p games and especially if the graphics is dialed back a bit really dont look nice on a 4K TV.

It's impressive that they have a performance mode. But if I'm to guess most that bought a Xbox One X also have a 4K TV. I doubt the majority will want to play TW3 looking like it does in performance mode. Because it's really not much to look at in comparison to the 4K mode.

@George-Roper I dont own the game either. But from my understanding based on the beta everyone could play him and the other heroes. You just had to earn some points pr.match and be lucky no one else grabbed him.

Now you have to play xx hours to unlock him. And that's a cool achievement for investing time in the game I personally think.

As for the original post about having to play to unlock a hero I'm all for that. Complaining about not getting access to a hero just because you bought the game is like complaining you dont get the best weapons immediately in any FPS game...or the best gear and stats in any MMORPG immediately..

Kinda silly when you think about it no?

I must say as a big fan of Eurogamer that I was really disappointed reading this article. Itís something I would expect to read from political correct sites like Polygon.

Really disappointed.

NeoGAF back online, as owner denies sexual misconduct

_LarZen_

@Markitron I dont know anything about that. I was addressing the bigger picture. That said. We all know how damaging sexual harassment/misconduct allegations can be to both the individual,family and business.

So to take control of the situation there and then in this matter is understandable. I dont think anyone would be in the best state of mind if they got accused of anything like that in public either.

It's after all "just" a forum. There is more important things at stake for him.

It's crazy to see the witch hunt going on in social media.

I'm glad there is focus on sexual harassment and that many women now feel they can come out. But there are ways of going forward with serious allegations when it comes to individuals. By going out with serious allegations and if not proven in a court of law. People should prepare to be sued for defamation.

As far as this NeoGAF guy. I hate that place. I would like to see it burn. But the owner like anyone else is innocent until proven guilty by a court of law. Not by keyboard warriors.

I think it's time for the gaming press and gamers to take a stand. Because if we dont then console/PC games will be just like mobile games by the end of this decade.

Exactly how this would be done I dont know. But I think if we want to protect our hobby for not only us. But generation of gamers to come. Then we cant just be grumpy in the commenting sections.

I think if we dont act soon. Then by the end of 2030 all games will be close to the mobile game industry.

And I must say I find it strange that Turn10 and Microsoft did this to Forza7. It's not like the Xbox One has a wide range of AAA exclusives. You would think they would do everything in their power to woo their fanbase. Not piss them off.
