People have made some great points but I'd also like to add the very high profile failure of no man's sky to this. No Man's Sky taught even the most gullible person that the hype machine is full of crap and to wait for reviews before parting with your cash. I absolutely would have preordered dishonored-2 but after nms and Batman I wasn't going to risk it. I ended up picking it up in the Christmas sale and it's everything I hoped it would be.

As long as valve can survive it. I've no interest in losing my 1300 strong steam library because of punitive costs causing them to go out of business.Reply

Thats like probably small change for Valve at this point i doubt it would dent their wallet.

Bethesda lost their free pass with Fallout 4. They were the only developer I'd comfortably preorder games from, even the season passes. But in this case they really buggered up the base game and out of all the DLC, I'm only interested in Nuka World and Far Harbour.

I think of the DLC that came out for Fallout 3 and just weep.Reply

I thought F3 had pretty awful DLCs. Anchorage and Zeta totally crappy. Pittsburgh was kinda meh. Swamp was better and the one that raised level cap was good.

Not that I have ever seen many good dlcs.

Im a huge fan of Fallout and agree with every single word of this article.

Fallout 4 sucks. And thats really sad. Was waiting since New Vegas (2010) for a new FO and thats what we get :(

It's like fallout made by someone who'd never played any of the fallout games but had once overheard a drunk conversation about them.

Yay for a singleplayer focussed game as far as I'm concerned.

In every strictly single-player game I've played, I've thought: "Y'know what? This would be better if I could play with a friend."


I hate tacked-on multiplayer as much as anyone, but the option of doing a story campaign co-op is always a plus for me. I don't even care if one person is the "main character."

Got a 970. No plans for VR yet, I'll likely hang around until the 1170 appears, maybe even the 12.

Basically when i get to the "ooooo that looks choppy" stage.

That's certainly true of first-person shooters, but third-person perspective on PC didn't get good until well after MP.


Also I couldn't bear to put Omikron on this list, even though it's probably objectively terrible now.

It is. I attempted to play it the other week. As opposed to feeling weird and sprawling it felt like GTA 0.

It wasn't actually meant to be sarky. If these devices use a similar enough API then clearly the VHS v Betamax argument isn't true. If the APIs are significantly different and require a lot of changes.... Then one's going to be favoured over the other and less and less titles will appear for one. ie: what happened to VHS and Betamax, HDDVD and Bluray... etc...

Jesus. I have no idea where that came from. Lack of coffee? Either way, my apologies. The only sarky twazzock here was me.

Tales of Maj'Eyal review snippet How does Tales of Maj'Eyal reward you for playing tactically?
As with most roguelikes you suffer permadeath and there's a lot of very well designed levelling and loot to be got. And the design is such that if you don't play tactically you WILL die.

Grey Goo review snippet How do the mechs in Grey Goo feel?
As good as the massive teddy bears. I liked the bit where the african american cop comes out, says, "I'm too old for this shit", and then shows a picture of the boat he's retiring to. It's a strategy game, you don't pilot mechs, unless you count "select and right click to move" as piloting.

You could write the story on the back of a cigarette packet and still have room for the health warnings and a realistic picture of a goat.
