  1. Isn’t that the same teaser that was posted a few posts up? I can’t see any difference.

    Crackdown 3 - February 15th, 2019

    Yet that's exactly what happened. I hope it works and I hope this game is an impressive showcase for it, as it sounds like something that could end up being pretty useful if consoles eventually turn into streaming boxes.

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    And that’s the sad thing about it. How many films have we had since the first and none have come anywhere near it, let alone bettered it. If Fallout is anything to go by, these next two won’t either.

    Crackdown 3 - February 15th, 2019

    I just had a quick look on Wikipedia and it was unveiled as a cloud demo at E3 2014, but wasn't shown as Crackdown until the year after. It really hasn't been in development for the eternity it feels like. As @Mr. Gerbiksays, they definitely announced it too early, and the couple of delays its had hasn't helped. No doubt, it'll be one of the reasons Phil Spencer came out and said they wouldn't be announcing games so early in the future. Anyway, that article does sound promising. I'm not sure how much to take from it though seeing as it's from the Official Xbox Magazine, who I can imagine will be a little bit biased. I hope the cloud stuff is as impressive as it sounds though, as it was properly ridiculed and declared as being impossible when it was announced.

    Crackdown 3 - February 15th, 2019

    That article says it’s only been in development for 4 years, which doesn’t seem that excessive for a game like that. Certainly not ‘development hell’ like I’ve seen it described. Is that right though? It feels a lot longer.

    Football Thread 2018/19

    You never watched United while Mourinho was at the helm then?
  7. This nails it for me. The saying 'Jack of all trades, master of none' comes to mind, but that'd be a bit unfair, as it really does excel in a lot of areas. They're just trying to do far too much with it. The problem is, for me at least, that alongside that top quality content there's also a lot of shit. Keeping the raids, strikes, challenges, secrets, etc and ditching all the grinding, cosmetics and looting would be my ideal game, but I can imagine other people want different things from it, which leaves them struggling to make anyone happy. My worry is, like you say, that all the good stuff is very time consuming for them to make and all the other stuff is relatively quick to produce, so they'll stick to that. It'll be interesting to see where they head in the future.
  8. @Nate Dogg III Any chance you guys will be getting in touch with Bungie to do a hard-hitting interview on what exactly happened between them and Activision and what their future plans are? I don’t care what their lawyers say, as the world’s foremost video game magazine, I expect you to get to the truth.
  9. I didn’t! You should have read my second sentence where I explained I was in dreamland!
  10. If Bungie can’t make it work, nobody can. Anyway, I was really just fantasising about how I hope this plays out. In reality it’s probably closer to what @Majora says, unfortunately.
  11. I hope it’s the other way around. Bungie have tried the MMOFPSGAAS thing and have realised, after a valiant attempt, that it doesn’t really work. Activision want to hold them to their 10 year deal, but Bungie have had enough and want to get back to creating a more traditional story based FPS, building on all the things they’ve learnt from their Destiny development combined with everything they learnt while on Halo duties, and the only way they’ve been able to do that is to buy Activision out of the deal. I hope they bring back Marathon.
  12. What the fuck were they playing at with the duels anyway? They threw this totally unintuitive mechanic at you early on in the game, that you could only learn by dying loads, then once you started to get the hang of it, it was completely forgotten! I’m in the epilogues now and the last duel I had to do was in the Jimboy Calloway Side quest, back in Chapter 2, I think.

    Star Wars: The Force Awakens

    I only like the original trilogy, but Return of the Jedi is my favourite, A New Hope is in second place and Empire is third. I’m not a true fan, am I?
  14. Cheers. I’ll have a look later.
