Burnout Paradise is gaming perfection

joeymoto108

1 year ago

For me, Paradise didn't have what made 3 and Revenge so special. I wasn't keen on having a big open world map to explore; it just felt a bit pointless and 'faffy' compared to the simple pick up and play approach of the others.

Another thing I strongly disliked was the racing themselves. Instead of opting for pre-defined tracks, the player has to plan out their route during the races. This for me was the biggest offender- IMO it took away from visceral nature of the game mechanics and made it more about navigation and trying to find shortcuts.

Admittedly I've only played a limited amount of Paradise (due to really not liking it at all).

@SeanBeansGravyBoat
Buying developers and gutting them apart is arguably unethical, yes, but it's unfair to single them out when there are quite few publishers doing this.

If you meant stuff like season passes being unethical then, as the kids say, LOL.

Battlefield announced live: watch here

I feel like the only person who wants more futuristic FPS games. Virtually no other FPS had the same epic feel as Titan mode in 2142. Imagine a rework of that, it would be bloody crazy!

That said, World War 1 would be an interesting choice. Please no World War 2, we had plenty of games on that and there's many more interesting historical conflicts that Battlefield could explore.

@Minmat Same mate, I actually thought January was better for games than any month of 2015. In fact, 2016 looks better overall; we've just had XCOM 2, not to mention Torment: Tides of Numenera should be out within the next few months. Honestly, 2016 is better than 2015 already for me.

Even if the hype were to be warranted, we're still probably looking at the better part of the year for anything to be actually released. Plus cards like the 970 can play practically anything currently released at 1080p 60fps. If you want an upgrade now I'd say go for it, I got my 970 early December and couldn't be any more chuffed.

AMD Radeon R9 380X review

joeymoto108

2 years ago

£200 for this? I got my 970 for £225 (on Black Friday, mind you, with Rainbow 6 Siege added in for free) and it gets quite a bit more frames than the 380x judging by these benchmarks and my own 970 results.

If you need a new card badly, I'd still opt for the 970, otherwise I'd wait until the next gen of cards which should be here relatively soon.

I know they said ODST will be free for those who bought it around launch- as someone who bought it a bit later (albeit when it was still not working as intended) I'd selfishly appreciate they just give the DLC away for free to everyone at this point. It would be a nice gesture toward the whole community and might even revive its popularity somewhat.

Dragons and Dark Iron dwarves hit Hearthstone with the Blackrock Mountain Adventure

joeymoto108

3 years ago

As much as I love this game, I'm a little burnt out on it. Every time new cards are released, the hordes of players just copy the most optimal decks online- as of right now, Mech Mage and Oil Rogue are ridiculously strong and are not fun to play against.

Expect people to experiment with cool deck ideas for a couple of days, then the meta will be mostly set in stone for the next few months until the next expansion or balance patch. Hell, even at low ranks like 15-20 there's still a crapload of net decks. Unranked may as well be ranked play also, with everyone playing the same meta shit as on ladder.

As of right now, Arena is the only reason to play Hearthstone.

I really like these types of graphics which are relatively simple but clean looking; a part of me much prefers it over the modern Crysis-esque photorealistic graphics. Imagine how much time and money developers would save if graphics like this became the standard again, not that it'd ever happen.

Molyneux is a visionary type- good ideas, ambitious, creative etc. However, he's exactly the type of person who need someone above him hierarchically on the team to reign him in and make his dreams realistic instead of idealistic fantastical nonsense.

Either that or he's now consciously a snake oil salesman.

Yes, that was taken in 2012. It was a conference where they were openly debating of what their policies should be regarding the NHS. Farage found himself in the minority in his own party, and as a party they have since agreed that they are against privatisation of the NHS.
