Burnout Paradise Remastered is more than just a PC port

kentmonkey

1 month ago

Kind of feel like some of this info should have been in a review. Especially as it otherwise read like a YouTube fanboy piece making excuses for it being nothing more than a basic port with a slight framerate bump.

Admittedly might have been how I interpreted it when I read it, but for me, when reviewing a remaster, I really want to know how it improves, or at least differs, to the original. It shouldn't require me to read another article just to get that basic information.

Just FYI, for anyone that works anywhere with a web site filter, that link is definitely not safe for work, and shouldn’t really be advertised as such.

If I even tried to access that link where I worked, it would be recorded against my usage and I’d at least be having an awkward conversation but, in all likelihood, face dismissal.

So you can't actually get one for 80p. There's more than one caveat. And it's more expensive as a total price than has been featured on this site before via JellyDeals.

That trailer is like it's been produced by bloody Michael Bay, constantly cutting to different clips/angles and lots of text explosions across the screen and has to be the worst trailer for any game I've ever seen.

All I learnt from that 1 minute of eye-watering mess, was that goalkeepers don't dive for penalties. So stick it in any corner and score.

Tales From the Borderlands' sales "weren't great"

I won't buy another TellTale game again after purchasing this, after copious amounts of gushing from journalists, only to find that, like hundreds of other people (and genuinely not am exagarration), I couldn't even finish it due to game ending crashes at the same point each time, even if you restarted that episode.

And what did TellTale do in response? Just delete posts from the forum from people raising the issue and asking when it would be patched.

Would love Owlboy, but not sure whether to hold off for a potential PS4 version. Any news on that?

My PC is a) fairly slow and b) in a room not overly comfortable or practical for gaming in. But if it's going to be my only option then I guess I'll have to get it on that.

Would definitely prefer to experience it on the console though, in comfy conditions, so if there's a release on the horizon I'll hold off.

EA reckons 40% of console game sales will be downloads by the end of 2017

kentmonkey

12 months ago

Physical. Mostly due to price, and storage issues, but also because of what has happened to many forumites (and one only two days ago) where Sony just ban your account if anything untoward happens on it.

No communication. Ban. In almost all of these instances these have been banned either due to over-cautious banks blocking funds, so Sony don't get there 4.99 for DLC you purchased and instead of communicating with you. BAN. Or where people have purchased stuff fraudulantly from an account and the banks/credit card companies have acted as Sony, typically it would seem going on feedback, don't. BAN.

Whilst your BANned, which could be forever if you don't agree with what has happened on your account, you can't access or play any of the games you have purchased digitally. You can still play your physical games (admittedly not online) but no digital content you have purchased can be played.

Then there's Nintendo and the utter ridiculous 1990s approach to ecommerce they have. I'm sure they must still be using fax instead of email to communicate between offices.

Microsoft tend to get it right more than not, and pricing on there tends to be a little more realistic most of the time, but they're far from perfect either.

So, physical. All the way.

I knew Simon well years ago. He had a huge passion for videogames, particularly the graphics design side of things, but I sadly lost touch with him late-teens as he moved to Oxford and I found out that I wasn't completely repugnant to girls.

He's a top bloke, and he always spoken like that. Without any aggression or malice though, just doesn't want to be anything other than "you see what you get".

I wouldn't take anything he says as prepared or PR spiel as he was never that sort of guy. I can't think of many better people to put Peter in his place and at least try to help him create something at least approaching what he's promised in the future.

And now I'm off to try and find him online to say hello.

Hi Mike

I think you're an attention seeking arse, and nobody is fooled by your act. I'll happily ignore all of your, and your studio's games, both because of you being an arse but mostly because you have far more "rage" than you do talent.

Until the next meltdown.

Football Manager database licensed for real scouting

kentmonkey

4 years ago

Go back to any Football Manager from the past 5-6 years and into the database.

Check how many players aged 16-21 where they have got their ability, and potential ability, correct. Look out how many players they have vastly over rated who never made it anywhere, then also how many great players they under rated.

Even the current one has some massive flaws with the database, and it's only a year old.

The fact it's now being lauded as some potential e-scouting time saver is fucking laughable.
