get2sammyb commented on Guide: The Best Character Builds for Geralt in...:

Another amazing guide, @ShogunRok. I'm only three or four hours in, but appear to be taking the 'All-Rounder' path. I kinda want to have a play with everything, so I think that fits me best. There are some imaginitive ideas in here, though, and it goes to show how versatile the game is.



get2sammyb commented on Japanese Game Sales Hit a Whole New Low Last Week:

The smartphone games are doing gigantic business in Japan. It's why, for as douchey as they've been, Konami's probably making the right business move by ditching consoles for mobile. Some of the biggest games make millions of dollars a day.



get2sammyb commented on So, Looks Like Sony's Already Working on the PS5:

@mitcHELLspawn "We suspect that, given the success of the PS4, though, the Japanese giant's next console will be built with the same principles in mind: low price, high specifications, and simple for developers to get to grips with."

The PS4 is a compromise. After the overengineered PS3, Sony opted for optimal power for the most consumer-friendly price. Of course there's significantly more powerful hardware out there, but the PS4 is the best it can be for a price that's affordable.

I don't think this is an unfair statement to make, personally?



get2sammyb commented on The New Need for Speed Is Called Need for Speed:

I'm semi-hyped. I enjoyed Rivals a lot, but it sounds like they're trying to get back to the heart of what makes Need for Speed good. They've had an extra year to work on it, too, so I'm cautiously optimistic.

The only thing that concerns me is the story bit. If it's dumb CG and Z-list celebrities, then you can count me in. However, if it's The Crew-style Troy Baker in a car, I'll pass on that bit.



get2sammyb commented on Watch People Look Like Idiots While Playing Pr...:

I honestly think this is going to work best in passive stuff. Something like Endless Ocean where you're essentially just deep sea diving would be great. Or perhaps something where you go on safari - stuff like that.



get2sammyb commented on Talking Point: Are You Enjoying The Witcher 3 ...:

I played maybe three hours last night, so I’m still very early and need to play more to get a better grasp on it all. I will, however, share my first impressions here. Hmm. I’m not sure what I expected really, but it feels way more ‘PC game’ than I was anticipating. This obviously makes sense given the series’ history, but I think the controls are very poorly tuned to the DualShock 4, and I can honestly barely read some of the inventory/menu text.

Coming off the back of Bloodborne, I think the combat’s pretty clunky, but that’s fine seeing as it’s not the focus. The world itself is very impressive, though, and I’m staggered by some of the facial expressions, etc – it’s really high quality stuff across the board. I’m not overly keen on the fantasy stuff, but I think they set up the story quite well. Usually these types of games lose focus due to the scope of them, but I am quite compelled to find Yennefer and further that part of the plot.

I’ll certainly be playing more.

@Bad-MuthaAdebisi It crashed for me during Gwent, too. Bit annoying that.

@Sanquine These are big games, and while we know it's maybe a teensy bit frustrating to see the home page flooded if you're not interested in a particular game, we'd be doing a bad job if we weren't covering it. Having said that, we've discussed this problem in detail, and we hope to have a solution with our re-design. :)



get2sammyb commented on Here's Your First Look at DOOM on PS4:

@DRL Haha! I dunno, man - what's this actually going to be? If it's just an old-school run-'n'-gun, like, it'll find an audience for sure — but I feel like the heavy metal record cover art style is such a thing of its time, and I can do without more brainless guns blazing.

But Bethesda did a great job making Wolfenstein relevant again, so we'll have to see...

Maybe if they put The Rock in it? XD
