Previously saw some concern about the EA take over of codemasters. I have a friend who works within the industry, specifically for codemasters and apparently all is going well within the studio.

EA has added their own infrastructure and is looking to integrate more of their own ideas but overall the company has been left to continue their work. Seems they are also benefiting from more investment.

Also aware that the new F1 game is coming along nicely. Don't play their games myself but thought I'd pass on.

Electronic Arts are a cancer and need to be stopped.

Irrespective of whether the F1 game is coming along nicely or not, I will not be buying it. I absolutely 100% refuse to give money to those suits who put out impossible financial models for developers to adhere to, then liquidate them when they don't produce a game that breaks sales records by 1,000%.

It was bad enough that they were going to be taken over by Take Two aka Mr.Microtransactions, but now they're taken over by EA who think "loot boxes are the same as Kinder Eggs".

Doom: Eternal's new DLC 'The Ancient Gods part 2' is coming today (18th March)

Looks, intense to say the least lol.

Sigh, well that was slightly disappointing. I didn't expect that ending but I feel it's kinda lame.

Still, it's definitely worth playing as they finish the story and the game play is really fun. Very difficult too on the harder levels.

{Ed001's Note - I never really got into Doom, couldn't take to it at all.}

Yeah dying light was a great game ,shame to see dying light 2 seems to be in development hell ,wouldn’t surprise me if it ends up canned

Supposedly there's an event soon to showcase and provide an update on the game.

Didn't enjoy the first one personally but I know it was popular. Hopefully the second doesn't release as an absolute mess.

ARK II has been announced, the trailer is totally cringe(They got Vin Diesel in it...) so I won't subject you to that but I think a new game is the best way to go.

The engine for the current game is heavily modified and just awful to work with. There are many bugs which are just can't be fixed because of the engine, so starting fresh makes complete sense to me.

Hoping for a more polished version of what we have now, with a few extra things and different maps, then perhaps future updates can bring in all new mechanics and ideas.

Any Gears fans on here ? Gears 5 on series X is really good. The enhanced version really does make a difference.

Never played any of the Gears games however always thought they looked rather enjoyable. Gears 5 is supposed to be an excellent game so I will most likely end up playing at some point. Do you recommend I play from the beginning (don't have much time) or just play Gears 5 for a good experience?

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Dec 2020 14:29:12
The story is pretty good but you could easy play gears 5 and enjoy the game as a stand alone. Well worth it in my eyes.

EA Games are trying to trump the Take-Two takeover of Codemasters.

Great, two awful companies bidding over a half decent one.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

17 Dec 2020 10:03:30
Yeah two of the most greedy microtransaction companys fighting over codemasters,I can already see the next f1 game, £10 for extra grip tyres ,tracks hidden behind a paywall etc

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Dec 2020 14:28:00
Well, they introduced Pitcoins a year or two ago in the F1 games, so I can see Take-Two or EA taking full advantage of that.

Unlock career mode - 20,000 pitcoins.
Unlock 'My Team' Career mode - 20,000 pitcoins.
Unlock Multiplayer - 500,000 pitcoins.
Unlock 2nd gear - 1,000,000 pitcoins.

Greedy bukyaks.

After years of waiting Cyberpunk has been released. Word of warning DO NOT buy this game for Xbox One or PS4. It is an absolute mess on those consoles. Xbox One X and PS4 Pro are passable and obviously it looks and runs a bit better on PS5 and Series X. I'm probably going to end up waiting for the next gen update myself!

Ordered it for my Series X, I'll be honest not that impressed at all.

shame !!

Agree1 Disagree0

11 Dec 2020 15:11:12
Yeah I share your thoughts, the game is quite evidently unfinished and I genuinely believe that Covid-19 probably did botch the final year of development. I'm also on Series X and wasn't blown away by the graphical fidelity. Just got to wait for that next gen patch, hopefully by then the game will have been fixed and polished also. Seems a no brainer for me to wait a while.

Disappointed however at the lack of response by CD Projekt Red. They haven't acknowledged any of the glaring issues in the game as of yet. Hopefully it's just a matter of time.

Its a real shame, I have Gears 5 and it looks pretty dam good far better then Cyberpunk that's for sure.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Dec 2020 09:23:26
This is typical of a long time hyped game. They add too much pressure and inevitably it will collapse in on its self.

I don't doubt that it's a good game under the layers of bugs and combat issues, but I won't be purchasing until at least 6 months after release.

Codemasters has been bought by Take-Two.

This means that any game released by Codemasters will now be 'pay to win', so we can expect to have to pay extra for the better F1 teams, etc.

What a great day to be a gamer.

Yip such a shame I’ve really enjoyed the codemasters racing games but now they will be microtransaction city,just like ea’s need for speed franchise

Agree0 Disagree0

I haven't got one but a mate has and I have to say the series x is WOW.

Massive difference.

I would love one if I could get my hands on one. Plenty on ebay but no way I'm paying 800 -1000 quid.

the new final fantasy looks amazing tbh. i'm a big fan of ff7 and the remake was great too, especially if your a fan of the original.

ff16 looks like they're combining the battle system of ff7 into a medieval setting of ff. always loved medieval games since skyrim.

Just flicking through some retro games site and does anyone remember marble madness on the Nintendo had some good fun on that.

{Ed001's Note - I have never had a Nintendo, other than the daughter's Wii.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

07 Sep 2020 19:39:48
Yeah I had a wii too, mind you I think the only console I haven’t owned is the saga Dreamcast.

Anyway back to the Wii I think that was Nintendo’s worse release. You haven’t lived Ed if you haven’t had a go on Mario kart

{Ed001's Note - I have played that, boring as hell sorry. Dreadful game. It is like things like FIFA, only good for playing with a bunch of mates for a laugh as it has no value as a game in of itself for me.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Never actually understood the purpose of Nintendo's consoles post N64. It's like they want to be 3 different things, a fitness centre, a childs toy and a gameboy.
