Editor's blog: We've revised our editorial policy

I've been prowling around since 2003, and though i've been rather dissapointed with eurogamer's direction and evolution in the last few years, I've been getting a new and positive vibe since the start of 2k15.
Suffice to say, I like the new policy- keep it up, Oli & team!

BioWare announces Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut

Oh God people- please, just watch the "indoctrination theory" on youtube and you'll probably feel like a jackass from the planet numb- as did I. It all makes sense once you think it through... And they leave a lot of room for future games in the universe.
I missed all those details when I played through the ending up to three times. :o

Welcome to the new Eurogamer

orakio

7 years ago

Oh well, The previous overhaul was a big change as well, so I guess I'll get used to it. I do dislike the long loading times a LOT. At first I thought there was something wrong with my own connection :-/ The portable version seems to work a bit better in that regard.

All in all, It might have been smarter to design a few beta-looks up front, and subsequently had the public choose one of those, before putting all your energy in something that might or might not work.

Don't forget that portal 2 is/was a half-life game, more or less. So it's not like they're abandoning the HL universe, suffice to say they're embracing it.

Makes sense.. Years of huge turnover should be invested in randd, hence new technology is waiting round the corner. Let's hope they combine high-tech with great creativity, and it'll be a winner!

The Settlers 7: Paths to a Kingdom

orakio

I'm against this type of DRM, but the score for the game is fair for me.
The developers did not choose to implement DRM, that's something the publisher wanted.
Thus, the developers need to be rewarded with a good review.

Simply a matter of choice for the reviewer at hand.

It's worth what people will pay for it I guess... Although I wouldn't want to be in the average student's shoes these days.
I agree with the comment about piracy. I guess the activision markeracketeers have had plenty of time to think over the ideal price for a maximum income. Alas.

Star Wars: The Old Republic

Bioware owes its reputation to make this thing awesome. Even though I was an SWG fan back in the day, I am not expecting anything similar in any way. What I do expect however is that same feeling I got with both KotORs, both mass effects, and dragon age: pure quality.

Warhammer 40K MMO to be unveiled at E3

you can hope all you want, but it feels like they have chosen the safe way, meaning a WoW-inspired concept. No doubt the market analysts have given that 'professional advice' even before programming started.
Revenue = everything these days, unfortunately.

Profit is always relative ofcourse. As long as the shareholders are happy and dividents are payed out, it doesn't really matter whether they have 10% more or less.

Final two SWTOR classes revealed

orakio

9 years ago

This, the total amount and variation between classes, is very dissapointing to me...
I will play and enjoy this game, but it surprises me that SWG's old concept of many different professions and subclasses is left untouched.
I guess TOR will be more about the storyline and questline that BioWare will create for the community (which will undoubtedly be excellent) rather than the community creating the content and atmosphere within the game. I was hoping for the latter...

We'll see :-)

SWG claims 3m player-made quests

SWG's success has always based itself on user-gnerated content really. player politics and economy made the game interesting back in the day. A feature like the one implemented now would have been solid gold 5 years ago.

Dragon Age: Origins

I think everyone expected the perfect WRPG, a shiny round 10 in the end, so if you start there and subtract 2 points for the major flaws the 8 stands strong.

After rereading the review the feeling of 6 has mostly dissapeared for me.
