Ubisoft updates Rainbow Six Siege's ban system to better tackle "racial and homophobic slurs"

Hopefully then it won't be long until more systems to deal with attacking your own team are available. I can't really say I have encountered much slurs on PS4 but a lot of questionable gameplay behaviour.

EA's extraordinarily negged Star Wars Battlefront 2 Reddit comment turned into loot box skin

Street Fighter 5 Arcade Edition review

icematt12

3 months ago

@JeremyODwyer I very much agree with that. I completed the overall story this morning, granted skipping one of the last fights because Bison was taking off like 1/3 my health with a 7 hit combo. I was surprised that I got nothing for it. They could have at least given some sort of XP or Money for unlocking gallery stuff from Arcade mode.

@Jaz666

You can get fight money by levelling up characters through their individual story, a handful of fights each character. This may work on other modes as well like missions where you have to do specific combos or the current special missions against Shin Akuma or Rashid dressed as Viewtiful Joe.

@Lankysi the 12 characters plus I believe an additional costume for each of these 12 and colour schemes 3 - 10 for both costumes. Basically, cosmetic options for the DLC characters that you could obtain individually from PSN or for fight money.

The 50 most exciting games of 2018

No Yakuza 6 mentioned at all? Perhaps because it is a game I am looking forward to but not necessarily exciting if it doesn't make my heart rate shoot up.

Star Citizen alpha 3.0 lands, Squadron 42 gameplay revealed

icematt12

Recommend specs have changed as well, now with a minimum of 16 gig RAM. The vast majority of people are having framerate issues largely due to players getting unnecessary updates about what other players are doing and their assets. I was surprised they released 3.0 to all in it's current state but it was best for the devs to do so apparently and fix later.

"Except Ryuji. F*** him"

Indeed. His hot handedness made him my most disliked ally but maxing his bond on a second play through made him much more likeable.

I'm genuinely surprised by how high Yakuza 0 and P5 got. Eagerly awaiting Yakuza 6 and smashing the face of whoever hurts Haruka. I would have liked to have seen Danganronpa V3 appear as just finished the last trial this morning and will be thinking about it for a while. I would purchase Nier Automata but frankly it's proving damn difficult to find a reasonably priced disc copy so guess I'm waiting for a psn sale.

I only put 3 - Persona 5, Mario Odyssey and Horizon. Zelda hasn't gripped me that much and frankly after doing a trial with a rotating maze that messed up the joycon it deserves some points off. That was frustrating.

I forgot about Yakuza 0 until someone mentioned it but that would be 4th. If I had played Hellblade that would have probably been 5th. It was genuinely tough deciding between P5 and Odyssey but I felt P5 had the little touches that made it more enjoyable. Touches like an excellent soundtrack, attention to detail like the loading screens and being able to make me care about the characters. I just think it is too Japan focused to win.

Jack from Mass Effect 3 put it well - "Hey, EA. F..."

They can say whatever they want but frankly they were caught being greedy and deserve the fallout. You want MTX, put emotes or MVP stances as DLC for a couple of quid each. Loot boxes not required and people get exactly what they want for a known price.

Mother defends 14-year-old son sued by Epic over Fortnite cheat video

icematt12

5 months ago

So this all started really from a DMCA claim and an attempted counter by the child. I am interested to know on what grounds Epic had to start such a claim, use of official trailers to advertise a third party cheat site perhaps based on my limited knowledge of these things on YouTube.

Advertising cheats or recording yourself using cheats on your channel certainly sounds like a stupid thing to do. Doubly so if the publisher tries to intervene and you attempt to counter it. I'll leave it to people smarter than me however to decide if the courts are the right solution.

Are loot boxes gambling?

icematt12

6 months ago

I wouldn't have thought it was gambling because you were guaranteed at least a specific number of items in a really dirty way. However seeing "take risky action in the hope of a desired result" here makes it pretty clear. I liked loot boxes at first but now f them.

A more accommodating size would be nice. My head and glasses struggled to fit the headset for Snooty Fruity at EGX and I remember struggles with PSVR at the previous year. Then I made the call to wait for the likely PSVR upgraded model and as a plus I already have RIGS for no additional cost.

Detroit
Strange Brigade
Shooty Fruity
Racing Apex
Super Mario Odyssey
Splatoon 2

Special shoutout to Hyperbrawl Tournament (took a picture of the stand to help me remember). It was located near to the EGX merch stand and only had one screen. A 2 v 2 sports game where me and AI v dev and AI. It didn't do anything special but it was fun. I was really impressed by the dev as well. They, for example, stopped people running into the ball with the goal. They have some AI issues to sort, one time the dev was about to score then his partner decides to use his weapon to pull the ball towards him. Coming to PC and Switch and hoping for other consoles. I gave my email for beta signup and hope to play it again soon.

Shadow of War developer discusses the game's controversial loot boxes

icematt12

7 months ago

If they wanted a time saver, have individual items not loot boxes. People can get exactly what they want without a risk of duplications or useless tat. I'm also cautious of how companies "encourage" the purchase of these boxes. Why can't Overwatch include missions (Win X matches, use character Y, get Z kills) to award crates.

Star Citizen 3.0 update "akin to Early Access" launch

icematt12

7 months ago

I had to have a chuckle at the keeping people up to date part. They aren't so good at delivering bad news. I mean they waited until during the CitizenCon event , early/mid November, last year to let us know that the single player component wouldn't be shown at all there and would no longer be releasing in 2016. This is despite them saying prior that the Squadron 42 part would be playing a part. I consider myself a patient and understanding guy but i have my limits. Right now the single player campaign, Squadron 42, is still down as being released in 2017. The reddit community doesnt seem to believe it and i would say the respectful time to let us know it has shifted to 2018 has gone by.
