Earth Defense Force 2025 review

sugarbaron

4 years ago

This is the last straw for me actually. I've been reading EG for over 10 years but recently its just turned into one big steaming turd of PR and advertising for the big names which pay the wages and garbage reviews for more hardcore/niche titles like this.

If I was the publisher of this I'd be on the phone bollocking whoever was in charge of publishing this crap on the net. Its not the reviewers fault, she is clearly out of her depth and has no idea what this game series is supposed to play like and the audience its aimed at. The person to blame is the one in charge, the one who gave her the assignment and then proof read the "review" and published it. D3 should tell them this will be the last game or news they ever get from them. Crap like this has real implications and impacts future decisions about whether or not games get made/released at all and if EG had its way the only games we'd ever get to play would be shovelware like Call of Duty and Titanfall just because its got millions in advertising behind it.

Anyway, while you're employing Sex and the City style bloggers as game reviewers then I'm out of here; I'd advise anyone else who is serious about their hobby to do likewise.

Useless review; could have been written by Ellie Gibson for all the use it is.

Why give an old skool shooter to someone like this? Moaning about slowdown ffs in an EDF/GDF game! Clueless.

Microsoft names next free Xbox 360 Games with Gold title

sugarbaron

5 years ago

Actually had high hopes for MS when this games for gold promotion was starting out; Dead Rising 2, AC2, Fable 3 etc - old games but still great titles. The last 2 months' offerings have been AWFUL and October's doesn't look much better.

If I was a neutral buyer looking at what Xbox Live and PS+ offer me for my money I'd be handing it over to SONY. Xbox Live has to start offering more for its price of Gold Membership now, SONY has raised the bar massively and they need to catch up.

When you read all the small print you realise just how crap these "rewards" are. Spend 40 on a game and we'll reward you for playing 10 hours; but only if you actually play the game within 30 days of release! LOL

Games for Windows Live is ending next July

sugarbaron

This is why I will never invest in a MS console again. They simply cannot be trusted to look after their customers.

They did it with the original Xbox, turning off the Live service, now they're doing it with the PC and pretty soon they'll do it with the 360. In 10 years time there will be no Xbox One service or support either.

The 360 is the last MS console I'll own. From now on its 100% support for Sony (despite their screw ups) - unless SEGA want to make a welcome return that is!

Not bad but considering none of these, or any other digital software, will be playable on Xbox One its kind of wasted money because you don't even get a physical game which you can sell on for a few quid at least.

No point buying anything from Xbox Live anymore, at least with Sony there is a possibility that you might be able to play your stuff on the PS4 with the cloud crap.

The big interview: Microsoft Studio's Phil Spencer discusses Xbox One

sugarbaron

5 years ago

Love all his talk about being committed to the customer and the longevity of their purchases and content, yet all our current Xbox 360 XBLA games, digital content, disc based games etc are soon to be worthless because they wont work on Xbox One. So whats to stop MS doing the exact same thing with Xbox One 6 years down the line when (if!) they release another console, will my Xbox One games be playable on Xbox Two... I doubt it because they have already proven they aren't to be trusted with making previous gen games operate on next gen machines.

I'm sorry but by making my current XBLA collection worthless when the 360 servers get turned off - which will happen a year or two down the line - then you've pretty much lost a customer for life now Microsoft. It will be the PC and Steam all the way from now on.

Also reads more like a press statement than an interview. No real tough questions, no real answers either to the questions most gamers want answered.

Sony's E3 victory was a PR stunt, but PlayStation 4 is still the one to watch

sugarbaron

5 years ago

Is the PS4 everything I want in a next gen console? No. But with the news from MS/Sony/Ninty at E3 I can honestly say it is the one I will be buying first and foremost.

Microsoft has quite frankly lost the plot. If it thinks gamers are going to buy into their multimedia center with rented games (you essentially will never own what you buy) then they are in for a rude awakening.

Nintendo and its Wii-U is nothing but a lame duck. Its already a disaster and even a raft of AAA titles will not save it now. They've paid the price for targetting the casual market for years with the Wii and even the most diehard Ninty fan should be looking elsewhere now.

Sony have done pretty much nothing new and just kept things as they are. They've reinforced their key strengths with upcoming exclusives (something the Xbox severely lacks these days) and more importantly they're not trying to push crap gimmicks like Kinect and Move. If only the PS4 had inbuilt backwards compatability then I'd be putting my deposit down now and picking one up on day 1. As it stands I'll be waiting for a year or so while I clear my backlog of PS3/360 titles because there is no point in me hooking up a new console with only a few games to play when I have hundreds of current gen stuff sat on the shelf.

Such a missed opportunity this. I, and many others I'm sure, would be throwing money at them if they'd produced a higher quality machine with games that ran, and looked, just like the originals.

They should have just built a perfect replica of the old AES machine and carts; surely the tech involved would cost peanuts these days.

Give me a next gen console to hook up to my TV and play games, thats all I want. I don't want cameras, move controllers, touchpads, portable gaming, social media, TV tuners, and all the extra SHIT they seem to think I do. FFS just give me a f'king GAMES CONSOLE!

Xbox One: developers have their say on specs, self-publishing and TV TV TV

sugarbaron

5 years ago

Yes chase after the casual market and ignore your core audience, the hardcore gamer, because we all know how thats worked out for Nintendo...

I have a TV with remote control so I don't need any of that TV shit they showed. I also have a telephone, two if you count my mobile, so I don't need Skype. I have a blu-ray player so I don't need a 400 unit to do the same job, plus it has its own remote control that doesn't require me to flail my arms around or shout at the TV at 2am in the morning and wake up the whole house.

In fact, the only thing I would use a games console for, oddly enough, is to play games! Wouldn't it be marvelous if I could buy a next gen games console which only does one thing, play games. Even better, if they could include the stuff to play games from the previous system - the one I've spent thousands of pounds supporting for the past 6 years - that would be fantastic and give me a reason to go out and buy one on day 1.

PS4 and the new Xbox both sound shit tbh. THey've taken consoles in a direction which I'm not interested one little bit. I have a PC to be "always on" and to experience social media and all that other crap, I don't need it from my GAMES CONSOLE as well!

The whole point of a console was something cheap (compared to a computer) to plug straight into your TV, stick a game in and off you go. No pissing about, straight into the action. This next gen of consoles with their always on connections, integrated social media and all that other crap just sound like one big headache.
