    CGI Cut scenes in MMO's showing you things that SIMPLY DO NOT HAPPEN in game.
    2D Indie platformers where the main character is always in silhouette - Apart from Limbo that got there first
    New games about Zombie apocalypses - YAAAAAAAAWN
    That people gave Metal Gear Rising betters Scores than DMC simply because it had Metal Gear in the title.
    Forced features - eg. being forced to use a touch screen at certain points when the rest of the game this is unnecessary - Uncharted Golden Abyss springs to mind. Touch screen quick time event boss battle = NO
    When characters have a Back story but no actual character - *cough* Marcus Fenix *cough*
    NAMED SILENT PROTAGONISTS - If the character is just 'you' it's fine - if they are supposed to be a character with their own story then NO.
    Sewer levels. - Lazy
    Platforming in first person shooters - Why?
    That fourth game that comes out when an epic trilogy is complete because publishers like money- Gears of War Judgement, God of War Ascension.

    Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare
  3. Legolas_Katarn liked a post in a topic by Winnum in Anti Cheat Campaign taken down Why,   
    From what you were saying in the post it looked like you were personally attacking one of the members. And frankly you seemed to be looking to start some kind of a witch hunt and asking that member to give explain themselves to you.
    Which they do not have to do.
    I don't see how a past ban should affect anyone's status in AJSA. This should be a free community for games to discuss games and issues. 
    And frankly it none of our business why someone got a ban on Steam as long as it doesn't affect the community. Anyone ever see that episode of The Office where they find out that one of the new starters has been in prison? And then the guy has to quit his job because Michael makes his life unbearable? Yeah that's kind of what you're doing with this. 
    If a person AJSA was to cheat in a match with AJSA tag on their name and receive a ban whilst representing an AJSA Clan or guild - that's a different matter and even then it's for the other mods admins etc to decide. Not mob justice.
  4. Ysnar liked a post in a topic by Winnum in Building Vs. Buying - The Better Option?   
    Okay so - building a PC - especially if you already have some parts to work with is much cheaper. But you have to know what you're doing or you can end up making critical errors. I wrote a post on this on my own blog some time ago.
    If you buy you will know tht your PC has been built by professionals who know what they're doing and you will have warranties and some consumer protection if things go wrong BUT you will likely pay 30% more for all of this. (At a guess)
  5. dgwoods liked a post in a topic by Winnum in does anyone disagree with AJ's ESO review?   
    Actually it was funny I am now playing ESO and I generally do not enjoy MMORPG's. because of - forced grouping  boring quests ugly graphics dull combat and 16+ hours of grinding. 
    But I actually really like ESO because have not really experienced any of the above as yet- sure Im really just starting out (lvl 15) . The combat is good and actually keeps me interested, the quests are generally well done with decent dialogue and some really good characters (I will continue to say Razum-Bar = Absolute G). The graphics are excellent and I feel that the pacing between missions is well done so that I don't feel the need to spend 4 hours in a dungeon whacking spiders on the head to boost xp.
    However I have seen some of the things Joe pointed out in his review- a couple of times quests broke - so had to abandons and restart them- if you're in a  group you all have to be alive and in the room when a boss goes down to finish quest - otherwise you have to fight the boss again - lots of empty chests and containers- and some things (like lock picking) aren't explained at all (had to look it up.)
    Also in terms of resources for crafting the game often give you a load of stuff you actually can't use quite early on and some materials for even basic crafting are incredibly freaking rare. (Pitch for bows is not for sale can't be farmed from enemies and finding that one log our in the wild is a nightmare. And even if you find the log you just have to HOPE you get some pitch. How are you supposed to improve crafting skills if finding BASIC materials is so hard?)
    BUT - None of this has caused me to consider not playing - I'm actually quite invested in my character and the quests and stories - to the same level I would be in a regular Elder Scrolls game.
    It could be argued then that maybe the hardened MMO players are the ones having the big problems here as they are all about the end game- raids and plunder and 'never ending quest to find a shinier pair of pants'.

    You can get a US - UK plug adapter pretty much at any Supermarket or Hardware shop pretty easily (you can even buy one from amazon) I've used them before in the good old days of grey importing consoles (think the last console I bought early was the PSP) this means you will definitely be using the right Power supply unit.
    You can even get them on Amazon:

  8. ThE_MarD liked a post in a topic by Winnum in REAL Watch Dogs Resolution Confirmed...sort of at a loss here.   
    Oh MY GOD NATIVE 720p ???? It's soooo blurry I can't tell if that's a car or a tree! I might as well have rubbed margarine on my irises! Just kill me now god!
    Ahem.
    Yeah Sony have been making a big deal over the Resolution thing ever since CoD Ghosts looks like they jumped the gun on this one though.
    Seriously though if MS had done the same with every 3rd party game on PS3 vs 360... PS3 was pretty awful for most 3rd party releases - I would almost invariably pickup the 360 version. (God I remember shouting at Fallout 3 on PS3 so much)

  11. Null liked a post in a topic by Winnum in Games you WANT to be good but have a horrible feeling won't be...   
    At some point I'll have to share my feelings on BS2IP's (Bullshit 2D Indie Platformers) there are some really great original ones (like Meatboy) but a lot that are just derivative. Oh hang on... I just did.
    Personally I think there is room for AAA and Indie games in my library- much in the same way you can enjoy blockbuster movies and small independent films. 
    AC4 was an amazing game but I'm concerned that AC Unity is going backwards rather than forwards.
    I also get that sinking feeling about every new Final Fantasy release. It's funny that the people who didn't LIKE the FF games are the ones square tried (and failed) to pander to.  Just go back to reular turn based battles - a job system and a party of 3 or 4 characters. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD.
    (You don't like turn based battles? Then you don't like Final Fantasy! You don't like running and jumping platforms? Then you don't like Mario!)

  13. Apex Spartan liked a post in a topic by Winnum in Anger is Failure - Three Lane Highway Revisited   
    A great topic.
     
    On the subject of anger I spent most of my night last night angrily shouting at people in Battlefield 4 because I had decided to give Recon a go and jsut COULD NOT get a kill with the standard issue sniper rifle. (I was playing without a mic soloing so not being abusive to other players) Every time I missed the shot or got killed I would always blame everyone but myself. I go angrier and angrier and worse and worse. 
    I would also say that I have been put off most MOBA's by the frankly Psychotic nature of many (by no means all) of the players- who HATE new players and clearly cant remember the days that they themselves took their first steps into a new online experience.
  14. Samurai Rabbit liked a post in a topic by Winnum in Bound By Flame (PC, PS3, PS4 & XBox 360) First Impressions Video Review   
    You know it's a shame - I really wanted this to be a decent game as have been waiting for a good story driven RPG to get my teeth into for a some time. Disappointing to see that this is (apparently) only an average experience at best.
