Digital Foundry vs. Respawn: the Titanfall interview

gnrlstuart

5 years ago

As good as this game looks, I get the feeling that the hype for this game is being artificially bolstered as a result of being developed by Respawn. Yes, the game looks interesting, especially the parkour elements, mechs and smooth gameplay, but judging by the way the gaming press are bigging this title up, it had better be mind blowing come release.

Destiny: Bungie unveils its shared-world shooter

gnrlstuart

5 years ago

Am I the only person on this site who's excited for this game? you lot are fucking miserable. It seems many of you have a twisted concept of what a social game actually is due to all the supposedly social experiences flogged to us on facebook and mobile platforms.

social multiplayer doesn't have to be tedious; the most fun I think i've ever had as a gamer was in 2006 playing call of duty 2. Back then xbox live was vibrant and full of people willing to talk and strategise with you. Sure, online gaming was and still is rife with idiots, but for every racist bigot there were ten interesting and skilled gamers to make friends with . Nationality and skill level didn't really matter, back in those days xbox live actually worked. 'Social' gaming was actually social, not some badly implemented illusion.

Nowadays, online gaming is a shadow of it's former self. CTF on Halo 4 is basically unplayable due to a myopic community who neither speak nor listen. If bungie can really pull of a persistently online experience which immerses me in it's world and let's me work with real people and make friends in the process, i'm all for it. Destiny definitely isn't the next fallout or elder scrolls but it follows that those games are finite in terms of thier longetivity due to thier solitary nature.

Very excited for this release; after playing the demo at the expo I can see myself actually PLAYING this one instead of spending hours creating infrastructure for my cities. I just hope they don't disable mods like with BF3...

@gnrlstuart Edit: obviously one does not need all of the cars, but nevertheless, it feels as though as a consumer i'm being charged not to miss out, as opposed to buying extra.

60 for the limited edition, plus 35 for the season pass just to get all the cars, and even then you miss out due to pre-order bonuses? I don't know what's more insane; the price, or that Playground Games can miraculously create an expansion within a month!

"Real risk" bosses may pull the plug on GAME, insiders claim

gnrlstuart

6 years ago

not the usual eurogamer crowd im used to in here. yes, GAME is an overpriced second hand store with no 'soul', but these are peoples jobs! losing GAME isn't just bad for employees, it's bad for consumers and gamers alike. what the reporters seem to be glazing over is the fact that game absolutely rake it in on the titles they DO stock .Game could make a fair bit of money as an online specialist who could guarantee delivery on release day. or they could alter their inefficient (and greedy) business model in order to adapt, survive, and regain the trust of the publishers.

Bowling for Liberty

spot on there. I think that all too often when we meet a charachter in a game, the first thing we ask ourselves is 'how are they useful to me?'. it's sad how
pragmatic gamers can be in this day and age.

if we want more drama and plot depth in our games, then it's characters like niko who will make it happen.

id cautious over Wii U development

gnrlstuart

7 years ago

to be fair, the wii u wont exactly be 'next gen' so to speak, so i think a 2012 release would be a great time to release the thing. as for the 360 and ps3 succesors, i dont think it'll hurt to wait untill 2013. I think Willits was spot on in this interview too; this generation has to be the best in terms of graphical progress in a single generation, plus a longer wait means a smaller price tag to pay for our shiny new PS4's when reach our shelves, as theres no doubt thier price tags would be horrendous if sony were to launch it this year or even the following.
