Primarily a music and sports game fan, but I've got big love for all genres and platforms. The Dreamcast is the best.

SuperKMx commented on Star Wars Battlefront Playable First on Xbox One:

@Utena-mobile I'm going to guess that they turned it down as they wouldn't be making a great deal of money from it. Plus an argument could be made that it could cloud the marketing of a service like PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now.

Even still, I would have left it up to the gamers to decide if they wanted it or not. :)



SuperKMx commented on Star Wars Battlefront Playable First on Xbox One:

@Utena-mobile The new login screen is pretty nice! :)

By "first" they mean that it'll be available 5 days before launch to EA Access subscribers, to play for a specific maximum number of hours. Then when it's released, you buy the game and carry on your progress.

It's been the same for all EA games since EA Access launched. The good news is that Microsoft didn't pay for exclusivity. EA offered EA Access to both Sony and Microsoft, and Sony turned it down, stating that it represented "poor value" for gamers. Oh, how wrong they were... :)



SuperKMx commented on Bonkers Easter Deals Fuel Rumours of Further U...:

@Boerewors I'm not so sure that a new console is coming in THIS year, but I reckon at next year's E3 a new slim unit - an Xbox One S - will be announced.

These recent prices are a result of rumoured new bundles. I'm thinking that the standard unit will get a bump to include a 1TB drive before Christmas, we'll potentially get a Halo 5 Guardians themed console, and it wouldn't surprise me to see an official drop to £249.99 before the Holiday season kicks in.

I also wouldn't put it past Microsoft to be offering deals to outlets in order to get them to drop the price over Easter. If they all do it at the same time, that's GREAT advertising for potentially much less than advertising would cost them. Not only that, but if little Timmy sees an Xbox One in one store for £270 and tries to convince his mum to buy one...then they go to the next store and it's only £250... ;)



SuperKMx commented on On This Day: It's Been Exactly 11 Years Since ...:

I remember SO looking forward to this when it came out. Ridge Racer! On other consoles! Yaaaaay!

Then it came out and was rough.

I played through it again recently on Xbox and I can't remember how I even got through the single player mode first time around. Those rallying sections are just so poor.



SuperKMx commented on Out Today: Pool Nation FX (Xbox One):

@Captain_Chao5 I think you've probably done the right thing. I put in a few hours and the game is broken all over the place. I've got about 7 achievements that won't pop, the AI goes from missing straight pots to cleaning up from the break every other frame...oh, and at one point, the sound effects started playing backwards for me yesterday.

Not quite sure what happened. Pool Nation on 360 was quite good.



SuperKMx commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:

@Tasuki I can see the resemblance to PGR, yeah. It definitely has that sort of feel to it. I'm really enjoying it. Picked up the season pass and everything. :)

Was VERY slow to get going though. Not so much as a hint of a challenge up until I was about halfway through the game, but then it picked up nicely.



SuperKMx commented on Ryse Invites Players to Head Back to Rome for ...:

@Red620Ti It's one of those that I keep meaning to go back to. I finished it, but I didn't really touch upon the multiplayer at all. I reckon it's underrated by the Xbox community as a game, I really do. Repetitive, sure..but it was genuinely enjoyable for me, despite that.

Might have to give it another spin :)



SuperKMx commented on Codemasters Confirm F1 2015 for Xbox One:

@stylon Given how half-hearted the classic mode was when they did it, I'm sort of glad that they didn't bother. I reckon they'd have a money-maker on their hands if they released an entire separate game featuring just classic cars, drivers, and tracks.



SuperKMx commented on Predator Coming to Mortal Kombat X:

@EternalDragonX Sorry, originally said "We know." when I meant "I know." Was stuck in third-person writing mode. :)

I'm with you when it comes to brawlers. Just release the game with all the characters. With other games, I don't mind DLC.



SuperKMx commented on Titanfall 2 Is in the Works, Coming to Multipl...:

Given that I still play it in multiplayer now, I'd say that the original was a solid investment even without a traditional single player mode. I don't play it every day, but it's one of the few games that have lasted a full year, for me.

Looking forward to the sequel, campaign mode or not!



SuperKMx commented on Editor's Opinion: Avoiding Pitfalls - Ten Tips...:

@Mr_Stuey Agreed.

I think it's strange how folks reach a consensus, sometimes. When you've got a hundred reviews, then you're going to get an average point, but sometimes it does seem as if the number is arrived at before the text is written or the game is played.
