  1. It really is, it's an adventure game. It's not a reductionist term, it's an aggrandising term. Zelda games are adventures, they embrace that whole exploring spirit of adventure. It's a positive description by me that you're somehow taking as a bad thing for absolutely no reason.
  2. @Kevvy Metal I dont have it so I have to take people's word on things, thats certainly the prevailing argument for the pro degredation, but at the same time I'd prefer not to find a new exciting weapon and have it break after 5 minutes. Your halo comparison is interesting though I've not heard that before, not a bad way of looking at it.
  3. Yes but my point is the pitch wasnt cleared, not the refs fault. Way less mad than giving a pen and then a free kick the opposite way after it was scored. One is passive, the other is insanely over active.

    Quite fun how territorial a certain fellow is over this, as if we're all crawling back to the xbox, cap in hand. We're just videogame fans, we go where the games are.
  6. I dont think any of his complaints regarding the character speech sounds are correct. It's a budget, kickstarted, unity game made on a (relative) shoestring, and it uses the same speech delivery method as it's predecessors. Sterlings just nit picking. Or put it this way, everyone backing it will have expected the babblespeak. People have paid for a Banjo game. Almost a decade ago, people were going mad that Nuts and Bolts wasnt a Banjo game, it was new. Now we get a Banjo game, they complain that it's a Banjo game.
  7. It is, arcade adventure is about the most loose term available for a videogame. It's an adventure game with arcade skill elements. If you're really going to argue this irrelevant syntax based point by saying it's not an adventure, its open world, feel free. Zelda is an adventure game, with arcadey controls.
  8. SAFC folklore that mate, a beautiful scene, and nowt to do with the ref. The keeper should have cleared his box clip for anyone confused
  9. He talks like he didnt expect a kickstarted game to not have a full voice cast, rather than understand that budgetary concerns and tradition would dictate they took the same sythesised speech approach as Banjo.. His review is a list of complaints of things that everyone else who backed it would be expecting.
  10. I know I harp on about EZA being so good, but in comparison Sterling, Kinda Funny, IGN and Gamespot etc are so bad, so utterly crap outlets, they are almost a poison on the industry. They really wind me up sometimes in how crap they are, and how they sneer about games. Games that are their lifeblood, so they could have a little bit more respect for them and their creators. Hell, even Angry Joe has a lot more integrity and is more well researched than those fannies.
  11. Sterling is an ex-pat and ex Destructoid reviewer who struck out on his own with a patreon. He can be ok, but he can also be a berk. He's best pals with Colin Moriarty, another ass clown, who somehow even ended up on Joe Rogans podcast after being forced to quit kinda funny games, another substandard youtube outlet (who dont even talk about news, and are so endlessly fascinated by their own daily activities that they cant discuss games without chortling at each others boring exploits). Yeah, they're kind of shit.
  12. This is potentially the biggest reffing mistake (in terms of stupidity, not impact) of all time. It seems to all point to newcastle encroachment being punished with a free kick. Unbelievable Jeff.
  13. I've listened to his podcast a few times and Laura Dale seems to be a bit of a prat, all 3 guests on there are insufferably smug, certainly compared to Easy Allies. Looks like Jims pals are circling the wagons. It's all very shabby, literally the only thing people like them have over the likes of us on here is the early access. Thats it. They certainly dont have the wit and talent of my favourite gaming journalists down the years, or even the anonymous but entertaining voice of current Edge. When he's even criticising the deliberate babble-speak, you know you're dealing with people less knowledgable about videogames than ourselves.
  14. Calm the hyperbole though scott, I dont mind his criticisms of BOTW, certainly im baffled by the the need for weapon degradation in an arcade-adventure and a small run meter permanently above your head, they seem like puzzling design choices. This 2/10 and neogaf baiting seems a different level of trolling though, even a 4/10 would have got his point across - he doesnt like platform collectathons. I think he's using the fact that he's backed it to try and pretend he's allowed to give it a kicking. It all seems an attempt to raise his profile rather than save anyone from so called bad game.

    Yes but if it costs all of their super GPU (roughly a 980 right?) in this console to hit 4k native...thats a waste in my eyes. The ps4 pro vs pc4k stuff on digital foundry shows a difference but you have to look hard at a still image to see it. Once that's moving, it's close to imperceptible. I hope MS come out swinging at e3 with a super powered bastard of a machine with a Halo 3 remaster that looks as good in game as Blur's cut scenes in the Halo 2 remaster.

    I'll be dissapointed if all this scorpio power goes into native ressing the same games at 4k, seeing as to the naked eye a checkerboard 2x upres and scale is just about as good. I'd rather see it leveraged on amazing new physics and stuff. For example, If a ps4/xbox is a 1x power, and a ps4 pro is a 2x power, and a scorpio is 4x the power...then using all that grunt instead of the pro's checkerboard/upscale techniques is a waste to me. Make something like Halo 6, or even Halo 3 full remaster, internally rendered at 1440p and use an upscale / checkerboard on it...use that raw power for a flawless 60fps. Halo 3 full anniversary remake done like that and I'm down the shops throwing my money at them.
  17. Absolutely, its one of my favourite things ever, im lost in summer without it. The panel is perfect, Le Tiss can be a bit daft but I love them ripping Tommo, and Mers is hilarious..and brutally honest. Whenever it's Jules on a Soccer special, Mers calls him Jeff at least 2 or 3 times a night.
  18. Best of both worlds though, he's funny every week on SS. fighting like beavers
  19. He's excellent on Goals on Sunday, he's got a good football brain. Give it a try. My mam's met him and he's actually incredibly charismatic, she said he's massive and had a real presence..
  20. It's Charlie Adam though, I'd book him for breathing.
