  1. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

    It's just doesn't add up. You could look at it this way. No script to make. No levels to make. There's still artistic stuff going into the game, but scrapping the campaign cut a huge swathe of expense off the budget. Also thank you for deleting my screw up post, mod. You are a champ.
  2. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

    I've been thinking about this. The MW2 remake doesn't have MP. Are they selling all as one package? Or are they going to ask fans to double down and buy both? Could be either, but I'm guessing the latter because $$$. Also there's something quite not right with this. How long have the studio had to make this game? Usually it's a 2 or 3 years cycle now for CoD's, isn't it? It seems a bit odd to be jumping on the Battle Royale bus. It's possible they could have had the idea first but I doubt that. The whole situation with CoD confuses me. Are they just phoning it in this year because of RDR2 and now having to spin it because that got delayed. I just cannot read what's going on here.

    You cannot seriously defend that ending. For a story driven game it's horrendous. It's a sheer insult to the time invested.

    Just hope you have nothing break that you got from them. I had a controller break and had nothing but hassle over it. It was easy for them to sort, either a straight swap or a refund. They pissed about so much that I ended up going to MS who sorted it out in less hassle. Shouldn't have been on the shoulders of MS to sort out though. The multiple game thing was the last straw. Looking at my order history it should have been clear I wasn't a retailer. Revoking the membership discount thing they had going on was the time I logged out and never went back, since the prices were the same as Amazon or elsewhere.

    I liked parts of it as well. I don't think it's going to have aged very well though, it's going to sting for some people.

    I stopped using shopto forever ago. The website was abhorrent and the few run ins with customer service I had made me want to never use them again. I didn't find the place particularly cheap either after they bollocksed up my ranking with them because I happened to buy a few copies of the same game. You think they'd have more common sense looking at my purchase history that I wasn't a retailer.

    Pushing towards a fully digital future, isn't it? This is an transitional period. Places are going to fold. We still need various outlets selling games though even if they're going to be codes instead of discs. Monopolies are bad.
  8. Shenmue 1 & 2 HD

    Very good. I'll enjoy watching you all painfully play through Shenmue's when they come out and have your rose tints broken.
  9. Shenmue 1 & 2 HD

    I see the agree button is well in force today.
  10. Shenmue 1 & 2 HD

    Nah, it was bad. I get that it was doing something different and it was detailed, but it was bad. When it comes out I expect the same sort of complaints that SotC got. It's nice to have a walk down memory lane, but it can be sad to see how dilapidated stuff has become in the interim. Running the danger that @DANGERMAN did when he bought all those old Megadrive games as well, pissing on good memories is a painful thing to do.
  11. Shenmue 1 & 2 HD

    I played it when it came out. I can't imagine it's suddenly got any better. I think it's more to do with the game being SEGA's swansong rather than the game being stand out.
  12. Shenmue 1 & 2 HD

    Not bitter, just not hoodwinked by this. If you want something like this you're better off going for Yakuza.

    The second game has one if not the worst ending ever to grace a videogame.
  14. Warframe

    Time for a little bit of a check of where I am with the whole "You can complete the game for free" thing I was running. So I'm about 100 hours in with 0 real world money spent. I've got about 150+ platinum left. This is going to take a hit with the frames I'm building and also with the weapons I want to keep for future use. Just for quality of life improvements so I'm not constantly juggling weapons when I'm levelling stuff up. I'm guessing it can be done, but the frustration of having to constantly do inventory management is annoying, so it'll have to be that way at some point. Ember, Equinox, Frost, Hydriod, Ivara, Nova and Valkyrare frames that I've got to get that I have access to but have not gotten all the pieces of yet. This is going to cost 140 platinum. There's also 4 more frames from the Tenno Labs that I'll have access to in the coming weeks, so that's another 80 platinum. You might have noticed that this platinum price exceeds what I'm given for free. Now you can sell bits on the market for platinum to other players, but I'm not going to do that.I just don't have the inclination to do that and when I finally run out of platinum I'll report on that and put money down to finish the rest up. However, it must be noted that you don't need those frames. I'm just collecting them for completions sake. It wouldn't surprise me if you could do the entire game with Excalibur or Volt. Not Mag though, since she's terrible comparatively. Lua, Neptune, Pluto, Sedna, Kuva Fortress, Eris, The Void, The Derelict and to some extent Plains of Eidolon are challenges I've yet to do. When you look at it I'm just over half the way through. There's planets I've not completely finished, either through being stuck on certain parts (hello Pandora) or just nodes that I've not done because I've not had the people online to do them or when I have we've been doing other stuff. It might be worth having a bit of a house keeping session at some point to tie up all those loose ends and farm for the frames we're missing currently. All this is based on the game as it is now, although I'm certain they'll add more stuff to it at some point. If I was a betting man I'd say that maybe the open world part of the game would slowly be rolled across the planets that could accommodate it. I do think it's feasible that you can go from one end of the game to the other without spending a penny. I don't think they're blowing smoke up players arses when they say that.

    Cunk on Britain is alright. I am sort of surprised Morgan has managed to keep Philomina a thing though, since characters like that have quite a short shelf life.
