Hearthstone to get three more big expansions in 2018

barnett666

5 months ago

I wonder how many more 'excuses' they can come up with to double to legendary count per expansion. The quests and DK's were novel, but the upcoming legendary weapons per class strikes on top of the class legendary minions strikes me as getting greedy.
What's it going to be in the expansion after next, class legendary potion!?
They need to drop the legendary count to 9 per expansion again to allow people to keep up and enjoy the game, rather than playing the class they they were lucky enough to get the relevant legendary for.
I'd love to have experimented with quest priest or paladin DK, but I'm prohibited from doing so as need invest my dust elsewhere.
They're monetising the 'fun' out of the game and it's starting to become obvious... and tedious

Hoping for the C7 65" to drop a little more to around the £2.5K mark before biting! (and to the comments above about them being different, they're not, every panel, all the way up to the W series, have the same spec. The only difference is stand, thickness, aesthetics and sound. Any picture quality variances between them are based on every panel having minor differences, not model type)

Legendary weapons... looks like they're starting to struggle to justify 2 legendaries per class per expansion. If they keep this up it'll just look like money grabbing instead of actually pushing the game forward

Diablo 3 free this weekend on Xbox Live Gold

barnett666

9 months ago

Word of warning to new players on the Xbox, either play solo or find a good community/friends to play with that hasn't modded their gear. As it's not running off the Blizzard servers (unlike the PC version) people have been modding their save game files to give silly unrealistic gear that breaks the progression and fun of the game.

I'm mainly playing on the PC version, so didn't mind being boosted by a modded mate. So to demonstrate how broken it is we did 3 lvl 150 greater rifts and went from paragon level 10 to 808 in about 20 minutes. (justified it to boost me to the same lvl I'm at on the PC version :) )

It plays really well and is really good fun on the Xbox, but just stay clear of people in online play who may ruin the fun for you.

Hearthstone's next expansion turns heroes into Death Knights

barnett666

10 months ago

Yay, but they're making the same mistake as with Un'Goro by making the class specific, potentially mandatory, card a legendary. Completely puts off a) newbies and b) people from having fun with each class by trying the new archetypes as most will have to wait a few weeks for the meta to settle before deciding which one is the most effective at winning matches and then crafting the relevant card. It's taking the fun out of the game sadly

Mass Effect Andromeda release date finally confirmed for March

barnett666

1 year ago

Does no one else remember what happened the last time a ME game was delayed and was forced to be released at the last possible moment in March by EA so that the day 1 sales go into the actual sales for their financial year...?

They ran out of time to do an ending for what could have been one of the best trilogies of all time.

Never trust a game that comes out in late March as the general rule of thumb as publishers force games out to hit financial targets regardless as to if a game is finished or good enough.

Why do all the old people think that Lewis Hamilton is the saviour of F1 and that he connects with "the youth". He's a petulant winging spoilt brat. Most people who actually enjoy F1 can see that. I wish that people stop forcing him upon the audiences in the hope that he'll save the sport. If he's the great hope that the higher ups need/want then there is a seriously big issue with the sport

FY4 Q4 is a bad sign. Means that EA are trying to give them time to try and complete the game but will release it regardless so they try and hit their financial targets for the year, even if it's not ready. Just like ME3 where they had to release without an ending

This just saved me £300. not all games need to be played in 7.1 on the 55" screen. Some can just be enjoyed in bed. So hooking this up to my gaming PC that has a 40" TV as a second screen instead of getting a second console is a freaking steal! (disturbingly I was considering this)

Now, all I want now is the wireless API that Phil Spenser was using for the Forza Horizon/Surface demo!

The Last of Us was a competent game. Has many good aspects to it. It certainly isn't a game of a generation!
If it was a multiplatform game then it would be getting 8's all round. Now it's cool to be a self aggrandising Sony fan everyone defaults their opinions (especially on this website) to evangelic status for their exclusives.
It's not a bad game. It's a very good game. It's just not perfect like everyone thinks it is

He stopped short of explaining why you'd want to do that, but the inference from the question was that you might want to use the Xbox One UI, or perhaps make use of its multi-tasking while playing.
Because if you don't have a decent AV amp you're limited by the usually small amount of HDMI ports in the back of a TV?

New Xbox One Achievements are split into achievements and challenges

barnett666

5 years ago

Like it or not, MS are doing a lot to get publishers on board. The additional revenues from the 2nd hand market coupled with the possibilities of setting up ‘challenges’ for people who play in the first week to encourage people to buy the game at launch is really going to please the likes of the AAA games publishers. So no matter how much people complain on forums, the people that actually make the games are going to want you to buy it on the Xbox One, thus the seemingly increased 3rd party support for MS over Sony at the moment.

From a consumer point of view though hopefully this will finally end the constant ‘pre-order bonus’ nonsense that’s been plaguing the games industry the past few years!

@simsini Bad naughty Simisini. Don't you know how eurogamer works now. You prefix a legitimate question with an obligatory pro-sony statement or one with an anti Microsoft sentiment and then you don't get negged by uninformed idiots.

Seriously though, if I were you, I'd wait till the end of the year (the same time as when the new consoles come out) for the the new AMD cards. They'll be based on the 20nm architecture and will run faster and cooler than the current 79XX series cards and they'll definitely be superior to the consoles if you're willing to invest in the top of the range ones. I'd stick with your current card till then tbh and continue saving for a better card at the end of the year

Special Ability Boost: Michael, Franklin and Trevor each have a unique special ability. With this boost, the special ability bar will generate 25 per cent faster.
I would like to think/hope that R* would have finely tuned the game enough so that having the 25% increase might make the player overpowered.
I like a challenge in games and as such this bonus actually puts me off getting either edition

Spec Analysis: Xbox One

barnett666

5 years ago

For the people asking which is more powerful... in raw spec terms I believe the PS4 has it otherwise MS would have boasted about it last night, however the biggest thing that no one knows yet in terms of actually rendering graphics on screen is the advantages of GDDR5 vs the 32MB of eDRAM. It's more than likely they'll be very close to each other with the PS3 edging ahead but similar to current gen there won't actually be a significant difference between the 2.
