So a twin stick shooter with an overhead view were you fight against massive hordes of oncoming enemies looks "nothing like Dead Nation at all" ???

Not only should you get your eyes tested, but a quick check to see if your brain is working might also be in order. #4.1.2

I think a sony move controller with an incorporated thumbstick, one in each hand, would be ideal for VR.

The move gives you accurate hand movement, the thumbsticks control movement within the 3d space, and the visor provides sight tracking - simples. #4

Because he can write code whereas you struggle with writing English. #12.4

I think it is only the content of the planets which is generated procedurally, the galactic map (complete with system/planet names) is already there and will be the same for all players. It would have to be like this for the multiplayer element otherwise everyone would be referring to planets by different names which would not be a good player experience for navigation.

Even if this was not the case and they are going to generate the planet names on the fly then its pretty ea... #2.1

Jeez, its not that complicated - he simply decided to write about his choice.

Clearly people are reading the article and commenting on it, so its not like he did something completely mental or without justification.

Writers write stuff, crazy but true. #1.2.1

Nice write up but i think you have done the game a disservice by only talking about the respawn mode.

The no-respawn game mode is even more tense and tactical with a greater emphasis on teamwork - which are all things you seem to value. Its very reminiscent of CounterStrike or Socom in that you have to play smart rather than just play twitchy.

Regardless of the mode the multiplayer in this game in superb. #4

Im thinking more of a vita shaped shell that you slot your phone into to provide the screen, processing, and controls.

Although i think you are correct in that certain phones can use a DS3 i dont think its particularly practical for mobile gaming to carry a lumpy DS3 around in my coat pocket. #3.1.1

I think Sony should release a phone with a large touchscreen and a separate (reasonably priced) add on controller shell that gives it all the functionality of a vita.

If the phone is a decent handset then people will buy it and then maybe buy the add on, vita fans will buy it anyway. #3

It only seems like good value if you are really into EA games, are prepared to only buy those games digitally (which are usually higher priced than retail stores thus negating the discount), and find value in the vault games most of which will have the next annual sequel on the way.

So to me there isnt much value in it. #2

Again, thats not what EA themselves are saying. Maybe you are right but yours is a third party source, if its true then why did EA not mention this on their site and instead advertise it at its highest possible price ?

This is EA, the kings of shafting consumers - people should not assume they are going to get a good deal. #7.1.3

The EA access official site lists it as 4.99 per month, thats 60 per year

http://www.ea.com/eaaccess/

There is only one price shown and it is the norm to advertise the lowest possible price, so if EA says its 5 bucks per month then thats what it is. #7.1.1

But digital EA games are stupidly priced so that discount probably wont even get them on par with store prices - is that really worth paying for? #4.2

It honestly doesnt sound that great to me - 60 bucks a year to play old EA games that are already going on sale and a 10 percent discount on new EA games ?

I can only imagine that the 10 percent discount is gonna be for digital games which EA already way overprices compared to retail, so in order for this thing to break even then you are gonna have to buy a lot of EA games every year - and even then i doubt you would get the same value if you had just gone into a store.

They cant because the sauce bottle was stacked on top of the hidden GPUGPU, which is too high for the extra compute units to tron. #4.1

I totally agree with this review.

I was a huge fan of the original Strider but this new attempt feels like it has completely missed the point. The original was about skill and fluid movement, this is about chaotic button mashing. #1

What an incredibly naive blog.

This stuff happens everywhere, and i think its fun so fuck off. #7

@OpieWinston

that comment shows a frightening lack of understanding for what Microsoft are attempting to do.

The resulting server calculations have to come back into the game engine and then be rendered by the graphics engine, it is in no way the same as simply streaming the video to a device.

personally i think its total bollocks. #1.1.8

Lack of a campaign didnt hurt Counterstrike, Team Fortress, Planetside, Dota2 and a shitload of other superb games. Also games like Battlefield 3/4 and Starhawk that didnt need a campaign but got one anyway are worse for it.

If there is a story to tell and the devs want to tell it then fine, but its not essential. #9

I wouldnt say the multiplayer is underrated, it certainly doesnt get as much praise as the campaign but those who have played it tend to rave about it.

For me it was my 2nd favourite multiplayer of last gen after Metal Gear Online. #7.1

I tend to find Ubisoft games incredibly bland and lacking in depth, which is shame because the concepts are usually very cool.

Its for this reason i dont think The Division will be anything special. #7
