News Comments > Star Wars Battlefront 3 PC Footage
24. Re: Star Wars Battlefront 3 PC Footage Jun 24, 2015, 18:46 dumpy
 
After a long hiatus from playing BF3, I returned only to find that my account had been hacked. I was able to clear my account up, change my name and language settings, and set new security measures. So I put down money on a Premium pack which was on sale only to find I had been banned for the precise reason for leaving in the first place; and I couldn't play on any server with a half-decent ping.

No help from EA or PunkBuster - pointing the finger at each other. I can't come up with the words to describe just how much I loathe them both.

Sad thing is that I know I'm not the only person with this problem - EA openly admitted to their players being wrongly banned.

News Comments > Retail Wolfenstein: The Old Blood Next Month
9. Re: Retail Wolfenstein: The Old Blood Next Month Jun 10, 2015, 06:45 dumpy
 
I don't know why, but New Order's the whole future-Wolfenstein thing didn't do much for me. Old blood seems much more appealing, and hopfully the price will be too. Suppose I could wait for a boxed set with both New Order and Old Blood, but that probably won't happen.

News Comments > The Witcher 3 Patched
23. Re: The Witcher 3 Patched Jun 5, 2015, 22:13 dumpy
 
The first and second games are very time consuming, and as people say, the combat definately needs improvement (though I did enjoy the combat in Assassins of Kings). Wild Hunt doesn't require you to have played the previous two games, though it can give you some perspective on King Radovid and Foltest. I'm currently trying to learn the alchemy ingredients by sight, and after I do that , I'll attempt to learn the bestiary by heart! =D

You're missing out on a LOT if you skip the dialogue. Personally, I've always found Geralt's mannerisms and tone hilarious (n.b. disdain).

Pre-order exclusives and Punkbuster are dealbreakers, and previous unstable releases doesn't play in their favour either. As much as I would like to play this, my intense hatred for the EA, DICE and Punkbuster takes precedence.

Though I have never played Stranger or Munch, I absolutely adored Oddysee and Exoddus. I think it was because the games didn't try to be something they were not. The art style was comical (i.e. 'Boom' machines) and the characters were just goofy. Great fun. I only have to wait until I buy my PS4 =D

Why? No one asked for this. No one knew they were doing it. It was an okay game; definately not a brilliant one. The "HD" still looks pretty shit also.

News Comments > The Elder Scrolls Online Dropping Subscriptions in March
33. Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Dropping Subscriptions in March Jan 21, 2015, 17:22 dumpy
 
Shouldn't the people who spent the money to buy the game, and then monthly subscriptions, be furious that they could have had the game for free all along? Or that the producer/publisher charged for what is essentially an open beta?

I bought GW2 a long time ago and only ever play it sporadically, mostly because I don't like the Pirates theme and I hate MMO hotkey combat. However I don't feel ripped off at all.

News Comments > Dying Light Videos
7. Re: Dying Light Videos Jan 9, 2015, 20:10 dumpy
 
I really like the level style, it looks like it is based somewhere in the Balkans, which is a refreshing change. The textures and particles look good, though youtube is a difficult source to base this observation on. I really like the emphasis on melee combat also, and the inclusion of guns does not appear tacked-on. I never played Dead Island, but I expect they look to recreate the success of that franchise while looking to improve upon it.

One thing to note about this video - the guys presenting the gameplay are SO FRUSTRATING TO WATCH. It may be intentional for demonstration purposes, but they constantly avoid kills, clearing areas, checking containers, picking up items and LOOKING AT POINTS OF INTEREST. I get the impression that they don't answer certain questions because they don't comprehend the value of the answer (e.g. Q: "Can you change the FOV?", A: "Yes, you can."). Even though I intend to play this on PS4, it is immediately obvious that this is a PC focused question, and that actually telling people what they can change the FOV to would be really nice.

Son, I am dissapoint. But why bother taking risks when you have your stockholders to worry about, right Activision?

Equally dissapointing as Battlecry and Shadow Realms.

News Comments > Dragon Age: Inquisition Trailer
23. Re: Dragon Age: Inquisition Trailer Oct 22, 2014, 05:39 dumpy
 
I second some of the previous posts about the choice of voice acting, this trailer doesn't do the game justice. That said, I didn't play DA2, so my specific experience with the Qunari is limited to Sten. I prefer the Sten look as well, I'm not digging the Mr Tumnus-on-steroids look.

Voice synch and animations seem a little off too, probably comparible to KotOR. Or it could just be youtube?

More America? It's been done to death. There are so many countries to choose from for historically based single and multiplayer components. This smacks a little of laziness and cash-grabbing.

While I am looking forward to this game, Season Pass sales models seem to be in fashion. Next there will be Plants and Zombies Season Pass.

N.B. "Internet Connection Required" - whatever that means.

While the original CoH was a great game, I didn't enjoy being limited to playing as THE AMERICANS. It was a nice surprise to see them focusing on the Russian campaign for a change, but once again I was a little dissapointed to see them return to what has already been done to death.

While we are on that topic; NO MORE SPACE MARINES.

News Comments > Tomb Raider "Exceeded Profit Expectations"
29. Re: Tomb Raider Mar 7, 2014, 17:31 dumpy
 
I'm playing through this at the moment on the PS3 and I am very impressed. The one-dimensional over-sexualised Lara of previous games has been given depth she deserved. The player bears witness to her development as they guide her through combat, puzzles and exploration. It sounds morbid, but I always have a laugh at the death scenes - some of them are very inventive.

Does this require Ubisoft Uplay? The one thing that stopped me from playing Anno is that I forgot my password, and amongst the multitude of usernames and passwords I have for various reasons, I couldn't be bothered to create another arbitrary password that I will just forget in another 3 weeks.

While I can appreciate the strengths of Battlefield 3 (and other efforts from DICE such as Mirror's Edge), my experience regarding technical support, and observations on how they reacted to the general outcry gave me the impression they just didn't respect the customer. It appeared their stance was one of Complete-Silence. I found it disgusting, especially after developing such a great relationship with Bad Company 2.

It is as simple as this - I knew what to expect, and I was right. My observations weren't difficult to make. Sadly, the only way to hold developers and publishers accoutable is through the consumer, and my voice is drowned out by the multitude of morons going out to buy their games.
