Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Legacy Edition - the one that includes Modern Warfare Remastered - down to £50

t8yman

when the remaster was announced, I would have spunked £30 on a standalone digital only copy on the spot.
now that no-one is raving about it, and I'm enjoying other games - they can get fucked. £15 for the standalone is my bite point.

Beautiful, deadly, and without feeling - why Modern Warfare Remastered is the perfect organism

I really, really want this. Was one of the genuine standout moments of the last gen for me. But I'm not buying IW. Shame they are gonna split a potentially massive playerbase by leaving it 3, 6, 9 months before selling it standalone. I just hope they announce standalone a coupla weeks after the presale/launch hype is out of the way.

The push and pull of Destiny's microtransactions

t8yman

2 years ago

the introduction of silver, and the general lack of direction/grind was what caused me to stop playing Destiny. I miss some of the great times I had, but I dont have any desire to jump back in. I have friends who still play, and they sound exactly like I sounded back then - "just one new item to raise my light level" ad infinitum...

I was underwhelmed when it was announced, and I'm even less interested now I've skim read the review. FC is about guns and explosions, taking them away was never going to work. I loved 3, adored blood dragon, and found 4 to be very very meh.

A game I spent sooooooo much time playing, a truly great "sleeper" game. Never did get every agility orb, but got very, very close - iirc I had 1 I simply couldnt get, I knew where it was, and heard it up close too many times, but I simply couldnt get it. and I love that orb more than any of them. my "text alert" on my phone was the orb "ping" up until about 3 months ago. I loved it, and kept it all that time. happy days

Star Wars Battlefront review

t8yman

3 years ago

Awesome looking and sounding, but the gunplay is less satisfying than GTA's in my humble opinion. 3rd person ruins it for me, and playing it in 1st person hobbles you from the FOV angle. The aiming in turrets and vehicles is wildly off.
A skilled FPS player has no place in here.

I'm done. I've enjoyed my time, took some time out, then had fun when I came back. TTK rekindled some of the love I had for the game, but eventually you hit that wall where the grind just gets to you again, playing daily crucible just to get 15 legendary marks every day, doing the same bounties over and over just for XP, and for what - the cryptarch bends you over and turns that lovely exotic engram into some legs you already have, or a chest for another class you don't use.

Now this, the thin end of the wedge.

All they want is an accepted, in game, real world currency. Once its a normal part of the game - then the shenanigans start.

I'm glad we are about to hit silly season (release wise) and i can finally find something else to plough my time into.

So long guardians, its been fun (some of the time).

Bungie stamps out Destiny's Three of Coins exotic engram exploit

t8yman

3 years ago

It didnt need nerfing, it needed a cooldown timer. I only bought about 45 of them, and wasted my first few by stacking them, thinking it would make a difference. Then I tried the farming method on scourge of winter, and had about a 10% success rate, however the engrams I got turned out to be a chest piece I already had, and two arms for a class I dont use. So i gained little in reality. I have had 2 yellows drop just during normal strike play though. Getting everything quickly would ruin the game anyway. I got my "Truth" launcher maxed out now so I'm happy. (bought that one from the blueprints)

Destiny: The Taken King guide

t8yman

3 years ago

@RoaringFolly a strike is basically a mission with a boss fight at the end, usually giving decent rewards, great if you are solo and fancy a 20-40 minute blast (also a lot of fun with a fireteam) matchmaking is usually available (but not at the higher levels).
The raids are a different kettle of fish, they are the big dogs of the game, there are now 3 - crotas end, vault of glass, and kings fall. these require (initially at least) a full fireteam, specific gear, and a lot of time - initially at least) they could be described as 4 very hard strikes combined into one, with exclusive "raid gear" loot at the major checkpoints. There are puzzles to solve, steps to work out, and a huge boss at the end. They sound very, very daunting to a n00b, but are incredibly satisfying to complete.

I ploughed hours into this game, and gave up after a few months of "the grind". I came back to it after a couple of months hiatus, and played it smarter. I took the time to understand how to play the game, and ever since have absolutely loved it. Doing a raid with a full fireteam (even on normal difficulty) is up there with some of my favourite gaming moments ever. I still havent done the full VoG raid, but I have done crotas end twice. Its fantastic.
If you are tempted - learn how the levelling system works properly, learn what you need to do to get the best weapons and gear - and you will have a blast. Taking it at face value is a valid approach to take. But playing it in a smart and informed way will be so much more rewarding.
Having no people on your friends list shouldnt hold you back either. There are thousands of people in the same boat as you. Go on Destiny LFG and join games other people are advertising for. They occur every few seconds for just about any event you want to try.

edited for spelling, and apologies for the TL;DR

Havent been back to the game for a while now, but it was the best fun I have had on my XB1 so far - after they fixed the terrible launch. My biggest bugbear was that they split the playerbase massively with the map packs. Quickmatch was basically impossible on anything other than vanilla maps.

@XbDf why dont you give u8p while you are (not really) ahead fella. no one gives a fuck over which piece of plastic you buy. sony and ms are both guilty of annoying practices, and bungie are obviously massive shysters sucking at the teat of activision these days. Halo 5 is going to be a microtransaction heaven, some of which is going to affect MP and even in a "pay to win" way, so why not just stop with the fanboyism and discuss what the thread is about? Im an xbox one owner, and massive halo fan btw.

They have an opportunity to nip this in the bud with their 2nd half of the weekly update, the first half was to gauge how players reacted to their peacemeal. anyone who does say "fairplay" is damning themselves to an eternity of bending over at the altar of bungie.
Stand up, tell them you are not impressed with the pricing, TTK at £40 is the equivalent at current rate to just under $63.
And the leaked redbull marketing memo about destiny players being suckers is all you deserve if you don't.
As gamers, the sheep have brought this on us all. Vote with your wallets.

Why are people saying "fair play"? Smith was an arrogant tosser who was blatantly trying to justify ripping people off, he says sorry, and calls himself an "asshat" for extra effect, then proceeds to rip people off by charging them $31 for 3 emotes, shaders and class items.
and then sits back expecting people to say "fair play".
Fuck that, I'm not even buying TTK.

Destiny: The Taken King director defends £40 expansion price tag

t8yman

3 years ago

What a stunningly arrogant man. I like destiny, recently rebought it as I did miss it. Its a very, very well made game with an interesting and diverse universe, great game mechanics, and can be a lot of fun. Where it falls down is on content, as we have all known since its release. And many people have made the point that content was stripped out to be sold back to us as DLC. This interview confirms Activisions intentions, and Bungie appear to have bought into the philosophy. The claim that watching a video of 3 emotes would make someone want buy a game a second time is possibly the most misguided comment I have read from the games industry ever.

I was considering buying TTK, as another 50 hours or so of fresh gameplay might well justify it, but if that is an indicator of their perception of value - they can ram it, right where venus doesnt shine.

And Bravo Tom for not shying away from making it difficult for him.

And yes, the hyped up crowd whoopin and a hollerin don't do it any favours.

@leehughes1 possibly, could be more, could be less. its what they did with hardline in the week before release, you basically have a 10 hour countdown timer once you start. 10 hours of actual gameplay, as long as you close the game completely when you stop playing, some people left the game running in the background when doing other things, and lost the 10 hours in 1 go!
