Me and my son played the Beta last weekend, and I was quite surprised at how well we enjoyed it. Genuinely quite different and I am someone who normally doesnt enjoy multi player games.

@MORZTAN I read a stat that 75% of the people who play this game are female. While I don't know the gender breakdown of the site, I would guess its more male dominated.

I enjoyed second son, but was a bit disappointed by it. I didnt think it was as good as two, it was very light on actual missions and the city felt a bit sterile. I mean walking around and you couldnt hear anything.

Would you believe that EA Sports is making FIFA 15?

thesnowman

4 years ago

While I enjoy FIFA I am getting annoyed with the crap commentary, I would also like to see them expand the career mode. Would be nice to see more real life events coming into the game, like manager sackings, player unrest etc. Rather than the trite stuff we see at the moment.

I hate any service where I have to remember my username and password (and type in using a controller). When I got watchdogs out, I had to put the controller down and log onto the website to try and remember my password, rather than trial and error via the ps4 controller. Just let me play the fucking game.

Should BioWare give up romances?

thesnowman

4 years ago

I personally enjoy the romances and think they add something to the story. Especialyl in Bioware RPG's where you generally have a bunch of people running around world/universe saving it, so these people would realistically end up being attracted to each other. However I would like to see the relationships have more of an impact on the party, especially if you cheated on someone.

thesnowman

I actually liked DA2, however I can definitely understand the criticism. DA2 had some really good sub plots and the missions between your party were all rather awesome. However the main story was a bit boring and only looked to be getting interesting as it finished.

However I still finished the game and enjoyed it, although not as much as 1.

I finally moved over to FIFA about 3 years ago, after being a PES fanboy for as long as I can remember. I would actually give this a go, but I am getting a PS4 and xbone, my son is getting my 360 and selling my ps3. So unless they put out a nextgen version, I am going to stick with FIFA this year.

I loved kotor to pieces and must have played it around 8 times, just completed it again on my ipad. Kotor 2 was good, but I have never played it again. I think for me was that I really wanted to continue revamps story. And actually the ideas they had for kotor 3 would have been rather awesome, but kotor 2 just leaving me somewhat unsatisfied. Some of the characters were awesome, but it just lacked something for me. I would sell my first born for kotor 3.

A list of every confirmed PlayStation 4 game

thesnowman

5 years ago

I will be getting both consoles, one at launch and the other probably for xmas. However looking at the lists of both consoles, I think MS has a stronger LAUNCH line up than Sony. Being someone who reguarly buys games on steam, ipad and iphone I dont really have a problem with the trade in deal or the internet requirement (both my ps3 and xbox 360 are always connected anyway).

From MS exclusives that will likely launch I like the look of Ryse and dead rising 3. For the PS4 maybe Killzone, although I havent always got along with the franchise. Dont get me wrong some of Sonys exclusive games look awesome, but they will be spread out over the year.

In short over both xbone and ps4 I am looking forward to the following:
Ryse
DR3
Killzone?
Infamous3
Watchdogs
The division
Star wars battlefront 3
Dragon age 3
Witcher 3
cyberpunk 2077
destiny
MGS5

I am sure there are some I missed, buts what my list for the moment. Never mind playing the last of us, GTA5 and Beyond 3 souls before any of this comes out.

Microsoft reveals Xbox One, due worldwide this year

thesnowman

5 years ago

For me the conference went exactly as expected, I knew they were going to focus on social, movies, tv and known franchises. My biggest concern would be that MS would still rely on Halo, Gears, Forza etc and there wouldnt be any new games. In that regard I am looking forward to E3 to see the new games. I only hope that MS done all this TV/Movies/Kinect crap now so that they dont need to spend time on it at E3 and can focus on the games.

As for the pre-owned fee, although it isnt a deal breaker for me as I buy most of my games new, it still seems a bit much, but if the developer of the game gets some of the cash then I think it might be ok. Probably see Gamestop sell the game with an activation code.

I think so. Lucas is retiring and if Disney can do to Star Wars what they did to Marvel then it should be awesome. Personally I would love to see a new Star Wars movie based in the Old Republic timeline, hell just rip the story from KOTOR 1.

I dont see what the problem is. As long as they continue to sell it as the always have then there isnt a problem. I probably wouldnt buy it with the 2 year subscription, however I can see some people who would do. If it lowers the cost of ownership for a new console then that can only be a good thing.
