God of War review: astonishing technological craft in the service of simple pleasures

shotgun44

@chucklepie I might try Giantbomb. After the redesign and EG's need to tangled up in fucking gender politics every 6 months, along with some absolute trash reviews that tell you nothing about the actual game, I feel a change for a little bit would be good. Polygon sounds like my personal hell though.

Don't gush: why the vision of Mirror's Edge Catalyst makes it a modern great

@Khazmo I'm sick to fucking death of this site trying to jam social commentary into everything. I can't read about whether a game is any good or not, I have to know whether I should be offended by some perceived triviality like one of the supporting character's skirt is too short and it ruined the guy's fun of the ENTIRE game.

The constant quest to be nosy

shotgun44

4 weeks ago

I wish there were more places in open world games that have stuff to find but aren't linked to quests. Too many times I have stumbled across some weapon or artifact and got excited only to find it's part of some quest I haven't triggered yet. I remember Morrowind had a few things like this (Umbra wasn't linked to any quests I think) but the series toned it down after that and everything was a bit too connected to some other paths.

@nothingmatters Yea, I mean I like the threaded comments and I imagine a lot of time and money went into the redesign which is why it boggles my mind that for every one person that likes it, there's five that don't. Do they not focus test such big changes?
I would note that I don't use any ad blocker, I do believe that websites I like deserve to make an income and ads are what continue to bring in the bucks. I'm not particularly adverse to ads that are geared toward me anyway.

I have no problem buying off Ebay, got loads of stuff off there over the years.

Hate selling on there but all you get on Gumtree is a bunch of weirdos that want to lick your feet or pay for items in hair and nail clippings.

Oh God, I really don't like multiplayer games, I played CS years ago when it first came out and was hooked back then but I've always found online play so toxic. I caved on this due to the hype and went in with low expectations and now I can't stop playing it. Even in its janky state, it's so compelling.
The other day me and this guy both landed in the same place and he jumped in a car and tried to run me over so I just jumped in the passenger seat. Neither one of us could get out for fear of having to beat each other up so we just drove around. Then a guy came out of building holding a shotgun, saw us and jumped in the back. I couldn't stop laughing.

Eurogamer readers' top 50 games of 2017 voting

shotgun44

Highlights that I haven't had a great year for gaming, I think my most played game is still Forza Horizon 3:

Cuphead
Wolfenstein 2
Nioh
Persona 5
Stardew Valley

I didn't even like Nioh that much but I want it to be recognised as I reckon future iterations could completely nail it. Persona 5 I haven't finished but love it. Stardew Valley only because I've only just got it on the PS4 and having played my bro's Switch, it's great on there too. Cuphead was genuinely amazing, my fave game of the year. I wanted to absolutely love Wolfenstein but I have to admit to being mildly disappointed by it. Deserves attention for not being a money-grubbing piece of shit though.

EA not giving up on microtransactions in Star Wars Battlefront 2

@Simatron3000 Because if I have any pride in my work that's not why I made the game in the first place. On the other hand I'm not a games developer so I don't rely on games to pay my mortgage. But I don't think EA is worrying about paying their phone bill at the end of the month, regardless of how many micro-transactions they shoe horn into games.

Clicker Heroes studio abandons upcoming sequel's free-to-play model for "ethical reasons"

shotgun44

5 months ago

I feel like they've gone the other way and over-valued the cost of mobile games. F2P isn't necessarily the devil. My problem lies mainly with the cost of these "micro-transactions". 70-80 packs of perishable items? Are some of these developers on drugs? You cna sugar-coat it that it's your money and you can what you like with it, but there's a point where it becomes undeniably unhealthy. However, if all companies decided they wanted to go the one price for the full game model, I'd support it.
