Dodoo commented on Review: Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China (Pl...:

"given that Shao Jun's journey feels complete on its own"

Yeah I'm sure Ubi said each episode will have a different protagonist...

Shame this game didn't quite set the world alight. Might still give it a go though...



Dodoo commented on Star Wars: Battlefront Force Chokes Single Pla...:

@Jaz007 The past isn't necessarily a reflection on what occurs in the future.

So just because the past games have or haven't done this or that is irrelevant to what is included in this game. It's a blank canvas.

Star Wars is about as big as it gets. It's a franchise that many people from lots of generations hold dear to their hearts and in my opinion is well deserved of a SP campaign.

I'd love a narrative with set pieces set in this universe, hence my disappointment this entry in the franchise does nothing to solve that.



Dodoo commented on Star Wars: Battlefront Force Chokes Single Pla...:

This is seriously disappointing news...

Game's have always been first and foremost single player experiences and should always have that aspect to the package in my opinion. By all means have MP, online, co-op blah blah but not to the detriment of the SP experience. Especially with a major franchise like this.

Another EA master-stroke, not...



Dodoo commented on Shadow of the Beast's PS4 Reboot Gets Its Claw...:

Looks ok in its own right but it doesn't seem to have too much in common with the originals apart from it's a 2D side-scroller...

I mean where's the colour? Lack of funky eerie music or the random bouncing eyeballs?!

Glad the combat's been improved though! ;)



Dodoo commented on Project CARS Starts Its PS4 Engine in Early May:

@BAMozzy Yeah I have to admit I was more into arcade racers myself for many years but more recently I've enjoyed more sim-style racers. Though I have to be in the mood to play them.

Anyway, glad this game is finally being released at last, it feels like it was a loooooooonnnnng time coming!



Dodoo commented on Even Xbox's Boss Is Impressed by Bloodborne's ...:

"Perhaps we're being cynical – and borderline unfair – but there's something about the way that Senor Spencer uses Twitter that seems cunningly coordinated to us"

Spot on. As the article says this is more marketing 101. It feels like MS are trying to get back in gamers good books after the Xbone policy disaster prior to launch.

This "I'm Sony's best friend" thing is really starting to grate. By all means Phil, enjoy the game, but keep it to yourself and sort your own console out!



Dodoo commented on Talking Point: Is It Time to Introduce EA Acce...:

@get2sammyb Yeah agree, a big can of worms!

If the publishers put online components behind the subscription firewall then that would be a nightmare, so this is where I think Sony would have to negotiate with the pubs that any service on PS4 would be only for benefits excluding online. In other words just access to games, beta's, early access, sales etc...



Dodoo commented on Talking Point: Is It Time to Introduce EA Acce...:

"allow one publisher to launch its own subscription service, and it won't be long before the others follow. That could potentially take us down a dark path."

This is true, however Sony shouldn't be able to argue this point considering they started the whole subs idea off with PS+ in the first place.

Though I'm not interested in EA Access myself, I believe we should, as Sony's paying customers, have the option to subscribe to it if we want to. It shouldn't be up to them to dictate what we want...



Dodoo commented on PS4 Firmware Update 2.50's Suspend/Resume Will...:

Personally from an environmental point of view, I don't think standby/rest modes etc should be allowed.

If you don't have the patience to wait a minute for a game to load then maybe you need to learn the virtue of patience...



Dodoo commented on Titanfall 2 Mechs Its Way to PlayStation 4:

I think we all knew this was coming, right? Still not that interested in it though unless it has a campaign.

Also wouldn't be surprised to see an X1 timed exclusivity deal on this...



Dodoo commented on Feature: What's New in PS4 Firmware Update 2.50?:

Glad they're giving the option to remove games with 0% Trophy but would prefer 5% or below.

Sometimes I just try a game, get a Trophy or two then never play it again (PS+ freebies mostly) and these games make my Trophy list look ugly.

Still this is better than nothing!



Dodoo commented on Review: Resident Evil: Revelations 2 - Episode...:

No, no, no.... "This is uncharted territory"

It is illegal in many countries to use the word "uncharted" on a Playstation website unless you mean the real "Uncharted" (as in the game), not just the boring real-world-use of the word "uncharted" as that's far too confusing!




Dodoo commented on Crikey! PS4 Has Now Sold 20.2 Million Units Wo...:

@Gamer83 @AyeHaley - Agree with you guys.

MS really flipped the bird to the consumer and are now paying for it. I was an Xbox gamer (both first Xbox's) but they really alienated me with Mattrick at the helm. While they are now under better control with Phil Spencer, the damage has been done...



Dodoo commented on Sony Still Schtum on March's PlayStation Plus ...:

Still no word from Sony on this months games? They are obviously having a hard time agreeing with some dev/publisher whatever fees they pay them?!

I agree with Sammy in that Sony need to work on becoming more communicative and transparent with their business. Being kept in the dark is not what consumers like and for a company as large as Sony (with so many personnel) there should be no excuse for a lack of communication in this day and age of Twitter, Blogs, Email etc etc...
