The ground battles were similar and they had all the planets from each era. I think I read somewhere that EA were the worst customer service company in the world at one point, this is why I have no hope for this game, I'd like to be proved wrong though.
    EA – the publisher behind behemoth franchises such as FIFA, Battlefield, and The Sims – has had the honor of being named ‘Worst Company in America’ several times in recent years.

    The result is courtesy of a fan vote from a consumer affairs blog, earning EA a ‘Golden Poo’- beating out the likes of Bank of America and oil giant BP.

    While other companies might have shrugged out the results of an online fan poll, EA executive Peter Moore has insisted that it’s a sign they need to do better.

    Peter Moore – discussed EA’s recent shift to attempt to become a ‘player-first’ company in an interview with IGN.

    He explained:


    "Yes, [being named Worst Company in America] was ridiculous. And this was also the time of sub-prime mortgage crisis; banks are dumping hundreds of thousands of people out onto the street. You try and be defensive and say this is stupid, this is ridiculous; and then you go, ‘Maybe there’s a kernel of truth here.’ Maybe this is a moment we can step back, look in the mirror, look at who we are, look at how we’re perceived, and figure out what we need to do to do something about it. Perception is reality so if there perception is that we’re not a company that puts players first, then how do we change that?"

    Moore created a committee within the company that looked over sites such as Reddit and NeoGAF, to see just how bad the internet’s perception of them was.

    It was acknowledged that EA were indeed ‘guilty of some stuff’, but Moore never got into specifics regarding areas where EA could have have done better – I’m sure we can fill in those blanks on our own.

    Moore concluded:


    "We made a deliberate attempt to say, ‘Fine, how do we go forward here?’ And the mantra that we came up with was this concept of player-first. To this day, in fact this morning, in meetings, questions are always asked–what do we need to do here? When do we ship that? What type of experience does this need to be?–somebody will say, but is that player-first? And that’s the moment we all stop and think. It’s not about revenue; it’s not about what benefits EA."

    hhmmmm, Peter Moore..?? I wonder who he works for now Do you think he'll have a committee trawling these boards reading our posts?

    I guess we'll see if EA change over the next few years.

    What platform is the old Battlefront 2 on?

    Ps2, not sure if it was on Xbox as well think it may have been. Yeah if he follows through with EA's don't listen to anything customers say policy he can do one.
    Ps2 games are hard to pick up and play now unless you've previously played them and enjoy the nostalgia. I played battlefront 2 with my mate when we were kids for hours, that and Lord of the rings return of the king, what a game.

    All football manager 2017 players on here have a look at this in football manager 2017 - which I think is out of order, I am from the UK.

    I just thought about starting a new save game with Dortmund club team and Germany as my national team, you can't start a save game as German national manager or Japan manager either.

    70 years on and both nations are still have trouble with the rest even in the gaming world, I'm very sad of heart by the football manager team doing this to them two nations in the footballing gaming world's best manager sim.

    Have a look to see if I am right, plus no J Leagues either.

    I might not get next years game over it, because I want football manager to not act like that, they are acting like the English fans in the so called friendly with Germany singing songs about the war and so on.

    Are you sure its not just an licensing issue? think I read somewhere once EA have rights to the Germany team.
    I might be totally wrong, not sure really

    That could be the case, maybe with the japan national team and maybe the J Leagues as well, but I would not know that and could put 2+2 together and get 5.

    No problem, but I know I am correct both nations and J Leagues are not in the game, but what would the reason be for japan not being in the game.

    I know Sega are the big partner in the football manager game, maybe image rights again just me thinking and maybe getting it wrong.

    Yeah. Getting the expansion pass currently gives you a couple of extra treasure chests to be found in the Plateau area. One of them has the t-shirt. It's very tacky and it can't be upgraded.


    There's more coming later on in the year with the expansion pass- they're going to add an extra dungeon, a cave of trials along, some extra challenges, hard mode and some added map functions. For now, though, the incentive to get it is pretty lame.

    Has anyone played through 'The Last Guardian' on PS4? I'm right near the end but I've hit a major stumbling block that I can't seem to get past. :FP:

    Has anyone finished this title yet?

    There is a way to fix this issue. You download a license fix from an FM site like sortitoutsi, then it will give instructions on what files to delete in order for it all to be fixed. It's really simple.

    Thanks for the help.

    There is one game that does my head in, Masters Of The World - Geopolitical Simulator 3 - It is a politics game, people might get the bigger picture about my gaming life, I'm a sims man, I did pay 39.99 for it, everybody is think, what's the problem, this is the problem, I govern like a Socialist with the Labour Party and bring fairer taxes in, I get 100% backing from the public, but the City and the banking sector hate me and the army or the city get me kicked out within the first year.

    There is warning by whoever made the game, the banking sector all say at the start of the game - we are pleased with your conservative governing of the nation or words to that effect, which is down right wrong, the game is one side to the right side of politics, so I find the game nearly unplayable as a socialist leader as anyone played the game on here ?

    It is unplayable, because limits are set on a socialist leader, you can't do many good things for the people and if you do your out, I get the funds in for all government projects and still it is the end of me, so the game is not open ended for me, plus the games mad, I give the same rights for gay people who can marry like everybody else and the gays where up in arms against me marching at the governments dictatorship to the people, I thought there is no pleasing some people even in the gaming world, maybe I should rule like Mr Putin, then I could understand being replaced within the year.

    The games more twisted than real life or reality itself.

    (I am very sad gamer) - but only if some Labour PM's did the same and even work the sums out before going on air, e.g. I've added from 197,000 Police to 250,000 Police who where getting paid 18,750, I did give them a 0.10p in every pound rise, which is 1,875 a year pay rise, which takes Police wages to 20,625 per man power in the game, now I times the first pay rise for the 197,000 police officers by 1,875 x 197000 = 369,750,000, they getting a pay rise, but don't think I've forgot about the exrta 53,000 police and their wage, which ups the police wage budget even more, which is 20,625 x 53000 = 1,093,125,000 + 369,750,000 = 1,462,875,000, so that is nearly one and half billion a year extra needed into police wages and so on, I do that with every pay rise, so I do spend a little time working stuff out, which is good for the old brain matter and adds a little more fun to the game for me.

    No I didn't Eloader, I still can't surmount it. It's massively frustrating to reach the end of an otherwise excellent game and be stumped by a sudden unfair difficulty spike.

    I'm still on it but my mate has completed it, if you can describe where you are and what your problem is, I can ask him?

    Unfair difficulty spikes? Yeah both ICO and SotC had them, very frustrating.

    Is anybody else stupidly excited about an open world Dynasty Warriors? I'm not sure much is known about the mechanics of it yet but I loved this game on the PS2 (last time I player the series) and I've been hankering for another crack.

    I finished both Ico and Shadow Of The Colossus comfortably back in the day despite any difficulty spikes, but this has me stumped Eloader.

    I'm in a torus beneath Trico (I've just used his tail to climb down to the torus). Inside there are various switches activated by the mirror I'm carrying, some of which are blocked by enemies in a frozen state. I have to trigger these enemies to leave the switches and chase after me in order to activate the said switches. What happens is a kind of Benny Hill-style chase around this circular area in which I have to dodge the enemies and activate all of these triggers/switches which will open a doorway in the ceiling of the room Trico is in waiting for me.

    The problem is that these enemies are quite agile and if they grab me I'm dead, there is no escape once they have me. Unfortunately I can't seem to avoid them grabbing me while trying to access the switches (the most I've done is four before getting grabbed). Is there a secret to avoiding these guards/enemies while going about my business with the necessary switches? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    That sounds like it would be more fun watching than playing.

    I'm definitely not there, I think I'll be seeing him this week so I'll see if he can offer any advice.

    With ICO there was a section near the end where you had to leave the girl to move some rocks around, of course when you left her the shadows came out to play, I got quite frustrated with that bit. SotC was annoying in a different way, especially when it was an awkward Colossus to mount in the first place. I really loved both of them though, a master class of game design. I don't feel as "invested" in the Last Guardian tbh, probably why I keep putting it aside for something else.

    I remember the difficulties you describe about Ico and Shadow Of The Colossus but I found them reasonable at least if a little frustrating. This one is something else entirely though.

    I look forward to you seeing your friend and any help you can provide, thanks for listening to me and offering your assistance Eloader.

    No problem, your colourful posts brighten up my day!

    I gave him a call last night, and although it doesn't mean a lot to me, he said theres a gap you can jump to be safe (you jump the gap getting to them) then just blast them with the Mirror/Trico with the tail you climbed down (??). That might have lost a bit in translation being second hand and I've no idea about the scenario, but good luck anyway, any issues, post it up.

    got one

    just downloaded Witcher 3 and eventually will lose myself in it. i have heard a load of good things about it and if that can be bought to the screen then wow, another Game of Thrones, but better maybe.

    have to say so far that netflix are building a decent rep with how they have handled the Marvel charecters and personally have enjoyed all the series to date. fingers crossed this one works also.

    Yeh I started with the Witcher 3 a while back (still not finished it) and I went back and played 2 to learn a bit more about the story and characters and stuff. The Witcher 3 is easily one of the best games I've ever played though.

    this is what im hearing from loads of sources and i just love games that have the depth to bring that about. just seen the intro and thought it was impressive and had a few hooks so looking forward to see how the story plays out.

    Thank you very much Eloader, your friend's fix did the trick and I've now finished 'The Last Guardian'.

    It turns out that I was doing mostly the right thing but I forgot that the mirror is also a weapon.

    Anyway you've reignited my love for the game and I really appreciate your help so cheers for that.

    The Witcher is up there with Skyrim. I think the conversations, different actions you can take and plot of the story is the best in a game I have ever played.
