Angry Birds 2 review

alcides

3 years ago

I'm appalled Eurogamer would insult its readers by even mentioning this kind of trash. I liked the original Angry Birds, but that was 6 years ago and it wasn't a free-to-play piece of junk, at least on iOS, but a decent little game.

The franchise has gone down the drain with the inclusion of random pay-to-win so-called "powers". Where once you saw clever physics-based puzzles, now you have to pay your way through hurdles.

Why does EG even mention this exists ? We know and we hate it. Stop. It.

Likewise, stop reporting on Konami's "erotic violence" pachinko ads.
We are not after flamebait, we visit EG for information on GAMING.

Watch Uncharted 4's full 14-minute E3 gameplay demo

alcides

3 years ago

I played the first 3. After I put the controller down at the end of U2's campaign, I told myself one more Uncharted would be the one too many. I was right, as far as I was concerned.

The Simpsons' writers would call this bumping and bouncing over the top. I prefered Uncharted 1 when Drake *only* had to face impossible odds.

This is not the game that'll make me buy a PS4, as I'm not after a hollow visual can-do display, but a game that's actually involving. You know, not like Uncharted 3.

Apple reinstates removed Civil War game with the Confederate flag

alcides

3 years ago

Hurray, now Apple's usual assholery has gone its expected 360 to no one's surprise ever, we can all go back to playing good games on real consoles.

All I'm saying is nobody would've heard about that game if it wasn't for the usual Apple censorship come and go. There seems to be more interest everywhere on the web in the current state of Apple's publishing policy than in reasons to justify the iPhone as a meaningful gaming console.

I recently played a much acclaimed game called "Does not commute", a simplistic topdown driver with asinine storyline where pausing and resuming was an in-app purchase. I tried to like it but deleted it when I realised it wasn't even free to play through and how bored I was anyway. Somehow that piece of trash wormed its way to my iCloud storage in the form of an icon and stuck there...

The iPhone could be a gaming machine if Apple was bothered to release an official controller for it. But their business model is about selling shit software with sly, obligatory microtransactions, always failing on the promise to bring an actual gaming experience to a phone.

I also played most so-called best iphone games of all times praised on listicles here and there and wasn't impressed.

Eurogamer is only catering to the masses, playing pretend that iPhone gaming really is a thing... While talking about everything surrounding the games in question but the games themselves.

Please EG, i'd rather see a day without news updates than non-news about a PR 360 capitalizing on tragedy and terrorism because buzz is clicks is Google ads is money. In other words, much ado about nothing by cynics. There's monetizing and then there's dignity and a vision of what you want your website to be about.

Where is gamesindustry.biz's sister site, Eurogamer, the layman's gaming website that meant business ? Come to think of it, I'm not even sure both are related anymore

Up : I just checked to see wether gi.biz ran the story. They did. I guess I was partly wrong then. I'm still positive EG's public is not interested in obscure software that EG didn't feel the need to write home about before it got the Apple banhammer treatment, which is all this is about, PR noise and Indignant one-upmanship.

Samsung Galaxy S6 review

alcides

3 years ago

Sales may slow because samsung phones tend to get slower and slower until they become unusable. This was a critic that I heard from the users themselves at work. The funny thing is they thought this was a natural thing, like with old Windows PCs, and would upgrade the the latest Samsung. I guess in the last couple of years people figured out they might as well get the latest iPhone for a similar price and not get ripped off on durability / built / software quality / fad features. There comes a time when "just as good as the iPhone" sounds like "then why not get the iPhone and not a cheap knockoff ?"

@dai_bonehead @bluntforcetrauma

That shirt (the Xbox PR one, for those who haven't seen the video) is simply horrendous and makes him look like a blob.

It's the wrong color for his skin and the wrong color for any occasion, it's fuck-ugly.

Checkered patterns should be smaller, tighter to be fashionable or acceptable. This makes him look bigger and wider.

That is the bastard child of a dazzling dress-shirt (look at the fabric) and that of a lumberjack. Gaudy.

I think what was wrong with this guy was his poor choice of clothing. The jeans and belt are no offenders but no redeemers either.

Also, get a manucure, girlfriend !

(Disclaimer : the SONY guy looks just as bad. At least the Microsoft PR has decent hair.)

Mirror's Edge writer Rhianna Pratchett isn't working on Mirror's Edge 2

alcides

4 years ago

The hundred people who bought Mirror's Edge deludedly insist it was brilliant. While the concept really was brilliant, the execution itself was poor. Convoluted controll scheme, confusing, self-contradicting gameplay (you can't have both the camera AND a directional stick account for driving the character's course in their own different ways jumped sideways to your death in curves) unforgiving difficulty made it a game on rails rather that a free-running experience. Just because it's called parkour, you know, doesnt' mean it HAD to be a "parcour" game. Countdown + cops firing at you is overkill. Just because it's a game about flow doesn't mean the major flaw of the game, stopping for combat, had to be ham-handed. At least make the experience-breaking piece playable ! Some times, you stop, you're dead and you don't, your dead too.

I don't know, but if I run straight and jump while turning my neck sideways, I won't be deported to the left while in mid-air. Which is the way Mirror's Edge works and which is why it's shitty.

PlayStation 4 UK launch sales hit 250k

alcides

5 years ago

Maybe now Nintendo will understand they were wrong with the original Wii, that they were lucky the clueless casual masses got fooled, and that even Apple, a company they have been copying for so long have moved from selling hard-drives with strapped on cheap LCD screens to manufacturing super high-end phones and tablets. Selling outdated technologie as new stuff is SO 2000s.

No account system in 2013 sucks badger asshole and testifies to Ninty's incompetence web-wise.

No third party support is telling both of Nintendo'a backwater offering and to the general public's lack of caring.

Inability to make the tablet controller relevant is alarming, when it seems competitors are doing just fine with everyday tablets companion apps.

A 2008 system debuting in 2013 with no backlog to speak for itself, going up against the PS360 for a higher price is a bitchslap in the face of even the most faithful fanboys. Inferior ports of 2-year old multisupport games too.

Nintendo you are STILL showing off games that you KNOW you can't sell on day one, like Pikmin 3 and... Bayonetta. People are maybe tired of buying a console then sit ducks because they didn't know you never had any intention of delivering on you promises. (See Wario Ware Wii and Metroid Prime 3 in 2007 no wait, 2008.)

Still no new IP, the first mario was a 2D rehash of a 2D rehash of a 10 year-old revival... Colorfull, family-friendly, "this is OK for kids under 7" software...

Stupid lifestyle advertising, not the same public targeted...

You don't need to make a powerful console, Nintendo, just get on par with SONY and Microsoft in terms of your services, user interface and online infrastructure. Stop ripping us off on price.
