I really can't stand the term Loot Crate... Surely 'loot' implies it's stolen, how can you charge for something that is supposed to be Spoils of War?

@MattEvansC3 Sorry but we see a lot of this type of comment, yes I'm sure there are plenty of money-men in the developers and publishers of games across the entire industry but(t)...

Do you not think that the designers, artists and programmers got into these jobs through a love of games and expressing their artistic talents, ideas and visions? If you believe games (and the people that make them) exist only to make money then I feel sorry for you.

Destiny's Valentine's Day event isn't worth setting a date for

If you don't rabidly chase the best guns and armour and you don't have any interest in micro-transactions and you don't have any interest in grinding what you're left with is a fun and quite atmospheric shooter in which you sometimes bump into strangers.

The story makes no sense at all, I have literally no idea what I'm supposed to be doing or what is supposed to be happening but it's fun all the same.

The weapon and enemy designs are great too and it's a satisfying game to play for sure, I really think people pay way too much attention to the surrounding fluff and somehow forget that games are about having fun.

A wonderful game and a breath of fresh air after playing ask those mindless, saggy-middled open world games that you can barely get away from these days. A great achievement, deep enough but also short enough to keep your attention and to me, thoroughly deserving of all the praise.

@riceNpea That it requires reading a chuffing policy for people to understand means, to me, it isn't an intuitive system. I'm with the folks that feel a 5 or 10 scale rating is totally acceptable, as they've al ready said it works for films, music, books etc.

@Swooper_D Completely, totally and utterly agree. Nothing on Xbone or PS4 appeals to me except for maybe 2 or 3 games tops but not to the point where I would buy one of these consoles yet, can't see a single game on the horizon that would make me want to buy either plus a PC/Wii U combo is a much better fit for me games-wise anyway.

BTW, the Wii U is excellent and deserves to be bought over the other two lumps of generic averageness.

Even worse is the scores given to big budget titles that are broken, I don't mean to sound nasty but proper journalism involves following this up surely, getting interviews with the producers and publishers about such things. There's none of that here and worse still is that the games are getting 8s and 9s when they deserve to be in lower half. Is it time to look for a different gaming site? maybe.

The case for 30fps PC gaming

charming_fox

3 years ago

Just upgraded my PC and with the setting alsmot at Ultra I can get locked 60 in Shadow of Mordor... previously I had to have locked 30... locked 30 was good, locked 60 is way better.. anything else is horrible... basically locking the framerate at 30 or 60 is a really good thing, plus 30fps through a TV looks smoother than through a monitor. Anyone that goes "bleeet bleet 60fps or die! Lazy devs lazy devs!" is an imbecile. In fact, as much as there's a terrible vulture of releasing half-finished products, I cannot stand it when people shout LAZY DEVS! Do you have any idea how hard these guys work and how hard it is to make an interactive massive world with the pressures of today's market? No.., no you don't, so shut up.

edit... a terrible vulture or a terrible culture? I prefer the first one.

@markytonline83 I played through half the first game being rubbish at it and hating it, having never played DMC or GoW or anything like that I just assumed it was my fault, then I restarted a new save and it 'clicked' when it clicked it became one of my favourite games ever... not sure I can really explain that 'click' in scientific terms though, sorry!

It is brill though.

All the early access/beta of the stand-alone has done is damage the reputation, many people have gone from loving the potential to despairing at the snails-pace progress of the game... one of the core elements, the zombies, are atrocious, virtually every mechanic of the game is broken, ugly or barely works. It's a shame, the core elements were so much fun in the beginning.
