Career mode is just what it is - a series of full races with a bit of team contracts and stuff but no cutscenes or "story" to weave it together. Still this is one of the better "real" racing games. :) also I'd love to blur 2 to get made but of course those are two completely different beasts!

Scollurio commented on Marilyn Manson's New Album Was Put on PlayStat...:

Well I listened to Manson ever since, wasn't too impressed with the last 3 albums and while the latest one doesn't come close to his early works in regards of "poetic painting pictures with lyrics" I still do like it. The sooner you realize that Marilyn Manson is a human being just like anyone of us (with a great sense of humor and an actual gentle soul) the more joy you can find in his music and his antics! :) Of course you're free to hate him as well! :D

Scollurio commented on UK Sales Charts: Mortal Kombat X Maims the Top...:

I don't care if the foreseeable future looks barren release-wise, there still is plenty to play. With Diablo 3, Bloodborne, GTA V, Minecraft, Resident Evil, Helldivers, MKX and soon Project Cars my PS4 is FULL of premium, awesome games that all demand my attention. Who can actually keep up with the releases?!

Scollurio commented on Review: Mortal Kombat X (PlayStation 4):

@Boerewors I know and see where you're coming from and I see your point. But I think there are FAR WORSE offenders in that department (just look at all the garbage on iOS and Android, or Capcom). Still, If you're favourite character for example is Scorpion or Sub Zero and you love Mortal Kombat you get a complete game and TONS of fun, as everything is really well done, you don't have to buy the DLC characters, and yet, you can try them before you buy them (which is more of good customer service than most companies care to provide) and maybe only get one or two you really like.

I also grew up with Mortal Kombat and I think we share a similar love for the franchise, but I would never NOT play my beloved fighting game just because of paid DLC. Also making content available soon after launch is best for business as most people are still playing it, in half a year's time the community will be considerably smaller, maybe you'll lure some back with the DLC but after all it's about sales and those are best shortly after launch.

Again, not wanting to step on your toes or questioning your motives, I'm just saying your stealing yourself tens, maybe hundreds of hours of good fun.

See it like this: If you have ANY hobby, any activity that you need money to have access to. Lets say... dancing. You love dancing and you take dancing classes. One and then another, and another. You'll continuously pay money and you'll feel like it's worth it because you love what you do. Now if your hobby that you love is playing Mortal Kombat you would quit that hobby entirely only because you'll have to (if you want to get ALL the content) spend even some more money further down the road?

I bought GTA V on Xbox 360, it was mad fun. I bought it again as I switched to PS3, it was mad fun. Then I bought it again, as I had a PS4 now, still mad fun. I bought a few bullshark credit cards for ingame money, I had mad fun. Money well spent. I always thought like: If I'd be playing an MMO (like I did quite a lot in my younger years) I'd be paying monthly fees, I can easily buy a good game for 3 platforms if I get my money's worth in good gametime. Which with GTA V I did and no doubt will get with MK.

Just my point of view! :)

Scollurio commented on Review: Mortal Kombat X (PlayStation 4):

@Boerewors Sorry but the industry will move on regardless of your boycott, only one you're hurting is yourself, YOU are missing out on a great game. You're not forced to buy anything. I see i like this: You buy a new car and you can order extras with it, extra cup holders, that bike-carrying-thingy for the trunk-lid, special floor mats, blah... does it mean you HAVE to get it all? No. Does it mean you don't get a great car without all that fuzz? No, you still get a great car. This is just the common "additional sales" practice coming your way into the gaming realm. It has been around in all other aspects of our lives for decades. Just think of supermarkets, or all the temptations when going to an electronics store. It's everywhere. Additional sales are optional though. Nothing that's on sale for additional money on MK does imbalance the game nor ruin the gaming experience. And about the DLC characters, firstly, you don't have to get them, there is still plenty enough figthers available, and IF you like the game, why not shell out a few bucks for extra fighters you would enjoy (and you can test for free before buying them). Its like going on a roller coaster ride or NOT AT ALL because the second ride isn't included for free in your first ticket purchase. YOU are missing out on fun. It all boils down to: is this your hobby? Great! How much money do you want to spend? Go skiing. There's always MORE and BETTER gear, it's up to your own conscious decision as to what kind of equip to get. You wouldn't stop playing soccer only because there are so many balls available or return your car because of the huge aftermarket for it, would you?

Exactly the same thing here. If they want to make money and provide content that is worth (to me) that investment, I don't look back. You should take the jump and enjoy the game. It's brilliant.

Scollurio commented on Review: Bloodborne (PlayStation 4):

About the difficulty, I wouldn't call it ultra-hard actually. Not masochistic for sure and definitely not unfair. I'd call it "oldschool". Games were like that in the past and they usually were better for all the learning and moments of success involved. A triumph only feels that much better if it was preceded by countless defeats!

Scollurio commented on Review: Bloodborne (PlayStation 4):

I love the game, would even probably rate it 10/10. It's a true masterpiece and I was no fan of the "ultrahard" games. I agree with the review mostly, only the part about the coop I disagree. It works fine if you know everything you need to know. If you have beaten the boss in the area, you cannot ring the beckoning bell anymore for that area. Only the small one to JOIN others, but you can only CALL for others as long as the area's boss is still alive. Also there is a level range that you and your potential partner need to be in, the formula is LEVEL+10%ofLevel+10. So if you are Level 32 it's like 32 + 3,2 + 10 = 45,2, which means you can play with people up to Level 45. As long as I was within range with my friends coop worked wonderfully with 2-3 minutes waiting time at the max until we connected. Also make sure in the network settings to use the exact same password and set your region to worldwide. Then it works like a charm! :)

So love love love this game and when I am done with it, and Helldivers, and MKX, and Project Cars, THEN I'll pickup (by the time hopefully price reduced) Dark Souls 2!

Scollurio commented on Call of Duty: Black Ops III Will Take Place in...:

Meh. I had zero interest in COD for years now, but now it's pushing it (further down). Could you imagine, COD during victorian era, the conflicts in India and Egypt. THAT'd be a gamechanger.

Heck I'd LOVE to play some ANCIENT wargame (like 4.000 BC, babylonians, egyptians, sumerans, ... all thrown into one big pot) over ANY COD.

Scollurio commented on Mortal Kombat X's PS4 Launch Trailer Invites Y...:

Storymode will be a cheesy affair, as always, but this shouldn't take away from the overall joy. One thing I noticed though is that some of the textures in the capture from the Story mode look really dull, almost like PS2-style. Anyone else notice this. Also, I never really liked SoaD and would rather have gun with some original track for the trailer.

Scollurio commented on Goro's Mortal Kombat X Fatalities Are Great bu...:

I know I might gross some people out, but I'd totally be for an ultra realistic brutal fighting game a la Mortal Kombat 1 for its time. Make nice 3D models and for the textures get real actors wearing costumes, like back in the day. Also tone down the blood and the physics of the game, let it more be like an MMA or UFC game, with a tad of wrestling added and realistic injuries. Yeah and Fatalities. Realsitic ones... neckbreakers, maybe a stab to the heart, stuff like that. Okay, now I grossed myself out. I'll show myself the door... walking out, heads down

Scollurio commented on Guide: How to Kill Micolash, Host of the Night...:

@Johnnycide Exactly my thoughts. Pretty poor choice spoiling the bosses (and more) by putting these pointless guides up front page. Pissed me off a little to be honest as I enjoy the "OMG-moment" when discovering a boss for the first time. Pushsquare usually is really careful with spoiler territory and we even have spoiler tags in the forums. Then this. Im disappointed.

Scollurio commented on Some UK Schools Are Cracking Down on Children ...:

Childcare is the responsibility of the parents. They should care. More often than not they don't though, still - some entitled "let's save the world" teachers shouldn't be allowed to mess with a child's private life over what games they play. Seriously?

Scollurio commented on Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weeke...:

@AFCC You need the small resonant bell if you want to JOIN someone, you can buy it in the dreamworld once you have 10 insight (acquired by finding madman skulls or seeing/killing/helping kill bosses). If you want to CALL someone in your game, it's enough having seen the first boss, going back to the dreamworld and get the beckoning bell. Careful though, when you're done with a boss in an area you can no longer CALL someone to join your game, still can join someone else's game though, which btw is a great way to farm echoes or just generally practice your skills, as you don't lose your echoes when dying in another players game. Hope that helped. It's an awkward system at first, but everything in bloodboren is awkward at first, stick around long enough and you'll be rewarded! :) Best tip though: play all sections of the game multiple times, talk to everyone, explore, if you're afraid, do so in someone else's game until you know the area. Then you'll grow "into" the game and things aren't that harsh anymore but only WILDLY entertaining.
