In my opinion all PS3/X360 games should be minimum 720p

and all PS4/X1 games should be min 1080p

Thus PS5/X?? games should be 4k

And PS6/X??x2 games should be a holodeck

Expansions are back, but what makes them great?

smally

4 years ago

I loved expansion packs back in the day. But then again, games that I bought felt complete, and expansion packs actually were an expansion on that game.

I'm not saying all games that come with DLCs pre-planned are released incomplete. But some DLCs do make you feel like it should have been part of the game. I also am starting to like season passes; they usually contain enough content that could be classed as expansion packs.

Fav expansion pack: F.E.A.R Extraction point

Rocksteady's final chapter in its trilogy starring the Dark Knight.
This makes me a little sad, why must things end : (

I not much of a fan of the 'metallic batman suit' though, I'd prefer him in the style of a sleek ninja with detective gadgets. Although if that metal suit was actually introduced about halfway through the game, I wouldn't complain.

Looking awesome Rocksteady!

I never played Halo 2 because I never owned an xbox. But I'm a bit confused, wouldn't the anniversary version just be a replica of Halo 2's multiplayer?

Is Halo anniversary multiplayer not a just Halo's multiplayer? (Obv the PC version, which was great btw. Ah yes, back in the days before having to rank up and unlock crap, I miss those days)

Microsoft: Xbox 360's Games with Gold programme will improve

smally

4 years ago

There's not actually been that bad selection of games provided though. I like that Gears of War, Halo 3 and Assassins Creed II were in, I mentioned these 3 because if you got a 360 quite late, these games you may overlook/skip (I myself didn't bother with GoW originally, and I'm glad I finally got to play it). However what I didn't like was none of the Halo DLC was free. It really should have been.

What's also good is that it brings to light great games you may not have heard of. Who here can tell what Shadow Complex is like? None of my friends have heard of it, yet it's brilliant. Don't wait for it to be free who know when, get it now.

Also I'd like to see DLC be offered for free

My Favourite isn't really a DLC (they were previously known as expansion packs back in the day).

F.E.A.R's first expansion was Extraction point. I loved it. F.E.A.R felt a bit short imo, though it still had a terrific ending; and extraction point seamlessly carried on the story as if you were just continuing play. My favourite part was when you were walking through a hospital that appeared to have blood horror and gore everywhere, believing yourself it was real. Only to eventually walk back later to realise it was all in your head. Plus Alma's scary as hell

Call of Duty: Ghosts next-gen upgrade plan detailed

smally

5 years ago

That doesn't seem too bad deal. Don't like that the deal ends in march for ps3 but I suppose you could buy it in preparation for when you are eventually going to upgrade.

As Activision announced, you'll be able to take your in-game stats and profiles with you from current-gen to next-gen, but you must stay within the same family of consoles.
I remember reading someone's twitter post which linked to a blog from an employee saying that all stats and profiles are carried over regardless of what console (inc. PS3 and 360 should you buy it twice). I believed it because you can link your Gamertag and PSN to your COD Elite account. It wasn't announced in their press conference because that focused soley on Xboxes (due to whatever deal there is)

Wonder if I can find that blog again

Edit- didn't find the blog but found an interview from late August with IW's Mark Bubin saying you could transfer 360 to PS4 and PS3 to X1, only to discover an update via Activision that this is not the case... booo :(

I like that idea of a message about the overheating. It may be obvious to keep vent clear. But not everyone knows how computers work

Can't you delay the PC patch until the PS4 patch gets approval and it ready to be released?

I just long for the day that cross platform gaming becomes available. The main reason for this is for when a game gets old and there becomes a lack of players, you kinda start to hate that there are some games available, but not on your console. And so you're sitting there waiting for a game to start

Tiny Thief review

smally

You've got to admit it, the angry birds series are good. But I hate what rovio did to it with their updates to include puchasable powerups, the dreaded IAP's

And so that's why I'm going to pass on buying Tiny Thief, Rovio's rep on IAP's doesn't give me confidence in their games

P.S I actually own all angry bird games, but never payed for any of them. You've got to love the app store's fluctuating prices. Tiny thief will be free for a day or 2 eventually, if you don't mind waiting

Just make xbox indie similar to apple's app store. Yes they'll be some restrictions and will need to be approved. But at least we'll see some good games on there.

I'm starting to get fed up with playing app games on a touch screen more suited for buttons

After Xbox One U-turn pre-owned is back on the table - but at what cost?

smally

The 360 gives you the option to install your game, but you still need the disc

Why can't the Xbox one give you the option to install, and the option to assign the game to your gamertag. Thus making it seem like you've bought it via online store.

That way if you trade in games, then don't assign it to your gamertag
