It’s so disappointing when this happens. I usually avoid buying from Game if I can, but I am glad I did on this occasion.
I hope this situation is resolved quickly for all those affected.

Having tried and failed to get a refund for my digital copy, I really hope this fixes this broken release. When I rarely do get games, it still oozes the amazing gameplay that Bungie coded, and it's such a shame that 343 et al have royally screwed the pooch thus far.

How Nintendo is reinventing the shooter with Splatoon

4 years ago

Trust Nintendo to put such an inventive spin on the genre. Nice to see a shooter that doesn't trade in realistic violence for once. Not that I don't love to play that type of game, but this, along with Garden Warfare, is bringing some variety back into the genre at last.

343's master plan for Halo 5: Guardians

I think most halo 'multiplayer guys' agree that Halo 4 MP changed the flavour of what made Halo MP unique (to ill effect) and that Halo 2 and 3 largely got it right.

It would be nice to be able to turn off the controller without stopping playback, or at least have the choice to eliminate the 'so and so's device has turned off' notification. Very weird choices from Sony on some stuff that didn't need changing from PS3.

How Watch Dogs' multiplayer liberates Ubisoft's open world

I know it's a worn out statement about any game at this point, but Watch Dogs has that something to it that especially makes me wish this game was exclusive to next gen consoles and the PC. If there's one genre of games that really stand to benefit from added horsepower, it's open world games, so it's kind of frustrating to have to wait for who knows how much longer until a game of that type comes out that isn't limited by older technology.
Second Son is looking like a next gen powerhouse, it's just around the corner and its PS4 exclusive. Whether or not the gameplay stands up remains to be seen of course.

The next Halo game is still on track for this year

irrelevanthuman

4 years ago

I didn't like the direction 343 took with Halo 4, environments felt cramped and it just was not as much fun to play as Bungie's games. The multiplayer, though hardly disastrous, just lacked the depth and balance of previous iterations.

I'm hoping that 343 might bring back some old school Halo formula to 5, but as 4 was very successful I guess they have no reason to.

Well that seals the no deal for me, although I can't afford either of the fuckers at the moment so its kind of moot. Thankfully I've got a huge back cat from the current generation to keep me going for a couple of years at least.

Sony are in prime position to steal the show. Rumour has it that they are presenting a couple of different price points for the PS4, be interesting to see how that pans out. I will be bloody impressed if they beat MS on price considering its specs and all.
