Couldn't give a monkeys toss about Gears of War, Microsoft can keep it. Played the first two (which were great) but lost interest after that.

The trouble these days is not many people are willing to risk a new IP when they can dig up an old work horse and make a few quid easily. Microsoft are especially guilty here, along with the COD crowd (Activision, EA) I'm more interested to see what Epic do next!

This is how PS4 voice commands work

smilernick

4 years ago

@hurst21uk I never said the PS4 offers more in terms of voice control than the Xbox One, and I realise that it is also optional on the Xbox. However that is exactly my point, It is not a full feature on PS4, resulting in a dashboard and user experience that does not rely on it so much. The Xbox dashboard and feature set are designed to be easier to use with your voice, which does not appeal to me.

I have to say, I much rather the Playstation take on voice control then the Xbox. On PS4 it seems like an optional thing that you can use for the basics like power off and play game. The Kinect to me seems way to integrated into the Xbox One's dash, and would end up just annoying me.

I wish voice control would disappear altogether, but if we HAVE to have it then PS4's offering is more for me.

Xbox One and Xbox 360 to get original TV shows early 2014

smilernick

4 years ago

I don't think I can possibly care less about Xbox TV! I bought a PS4 at launch and it's fucking awesome, but was planning on an Xbox One in the new year. The thing that puts me off slightly though is the Microsoft focus on seemingly everything other than games. I hate Ads, I hate Kinnect (I will never talk to my TV!!!), I hate the way Microsoft fail to support indies, I hate the Americanism that comes with every Xbox. I did use to love Halo, but now it has saggy tits from being milked so much.

I just don't like the direction Microsoft has taken this time around. The 360 was quality, but I'm struggling to justify getting the One to myself, especially with the PS4 being fantastic.

......Killer Instinct looks good though.

We don't need to see all of the Sony first party games straight away! Everybody knows that sooner or later we will get the Uncharted 4's, Wipeout's and no doubt a Last of Us sequel. Overall including launch and future titles, Sony has Microsoft spanked on exclusives.

At launch we will also get the third party multi platform titles too, so it's all looking pretty sweet for Playstation 4! I can't friggin wait myself...preordered weeks ago.

I will see it at the Xbox reveal, but if i buy it, it will for my brand new PS4!

Microsoft are going to have to pull something special out the bag if they want me to pick up their next console! Not interested in Kinect, not bothered by streaming music videos, I have Twitter and Facebook on my ipad, I download movies through iTunes, I DONT CARE ABOUT ANY OF THAT!

All I want from my console is a massive selection of top quality games, in many different genres!!! GAMES, GAMES, GAMES!!! I want Japanese games and Western games! I want indie games, arcade games and AAA games.

Take a leaf out of the Sony book Microsoft and sort me out with games, then I will be interested.

The world will stop as everybody flocks re-experience this universally accepted treasure of humanity.

No Capcom, turning all your best games into action orientated showers of crap in an attempt to chase the COD dollar hasn't worked. Just like it didn't work for Square Enix.

Bring back some old school Japanese originality an then people might want to buy your games again.

It's about time we had some decent Survival Horror games. Resident Evil has been destroyed by Capcom, Dead Space has sold out! It seems like these days the publishers/devs only care about what makes the most money, as opposed to making a name for themselves by producing top quality games.

Im looking forward to this, there aren't enough Mikami's if you ask me.

Things will pick up when the next-gen begins properly! It may be slow at the moment, but all these big publishers coming out and saying how slow it is, can't help confidence in the industry! Stop blubbing about it and get on with building new and interesting games for the new hardware.. That way when next-gen does finally come along, the industry will be even stronger.

Tomb Raider has sold 3.4 million copies, failed to hit expectations

Square Enix have gone completely bat shit!! They are the EA of the east and are now only interested in Money. I know they are a business and need some decent sales to keep going, but they are shameless. Bring back Squaresoft...when producing a top quality game was a big priority, not any old shit for a quick bit of cash!

Most of the Japanese industry have lost it this past generation. Chasing the COD dollar has pushed all the major developers of yesteryear to ruin their main franchises. Resident Evil is a mess, and Final Fantasy is laughable. They should go back to ignoring us in the west and stick to doing way they do best.

Serves them right for refusing to take their head out their arse and listen to the fans for once! They should have ditched FF13 instead of spending time and money on endless sequels.

They should stop trying to be something they are not, I want decent JRPG's or Survival Horror, something like that from a Japanese developer. That is what they do well...stick to it!!

Gears of War: Judgment review

smilernick

5 years ago

Sick to death of billion dollar Hollywood style action games! Games like COD, Gears and Halo, as well as the endless money making copies of each, Resident Evil sold out too!!! I don't think I'm alone in that feeling either. I've been playing Persona 4 Golden on the Vita, and honestly it's one of the most enjoyable games I've played all Gen, It's time for a JRPG comeback if you ask me. I think developers need to go back to focusing on creativity, different genres and generally trying new things, a bit like we had in the days of PSOne. We need some more story based games like Survival Horror and RPG's. it would be nice to have some choice instead of paying THE SAME FUCKING GAME EVERY MONTH!!
