Finally managed to snag Skyrim XBone while it was still in stock... only for their payment system to throw an internal server error

They were selling Xcom 2 for £9.99 less then a week ago. Now they want £12.39?!

Skyrim and Ratchet OOS what a shame

I wouldnt get R&C on ps4, it's a poor parody of the 2002 game with less content. get the HD collection on ps3, the games are so much more amazing, buying a preowned ps3 + the HD trilogy for it would be better value than buying the PS4 rehash.

Great price as usual mate. Heat

First person to not like the new version.


I've seen a bunch of people around share the opinion, but as someone who played the game in 2002 I thought it was pretty abysmal that they remade half the first game and charged the same thing for it when the only things they added to the game were weapons and a little plot from other editions, which they also squished together to make a terrible movie of badly composed plot (the same in the this game) which in reviews didn't fare well either.
I can only speculate the people who have enjoyed it haven't played the original, can't remember the 2nd half of the levels and also plot surrounding them or just have nostalgia goggles so thick they are just happy to play a fraction of their past with a shiny new skin. I will admit many of the new things they added were cool in terms of weapons and level design, but it was still half a game, and the plot was barely a fraction of it's original despite borrowing elements from the entire backlog of the game history it just turned into a big mess of what I can only guess they thought were the best story elements of each game before - it just came off as a total cash grab, like the film was too.
Again I will admit the first half the levels were good, but the 2nd half were absent so the whole experience felt like a pointless anticlimax to me.
like the nostalgic equivalent of eating an ice cream but instead of getting to the cone part you realise it was never there to begin with and you are biting your own hand as the rug is pulled under you so suddenly you don't realise things are over.

I think I recall thinking; "oh hey this boss fight is cool and wan't in the original, oh thats the whole game? wait wtf where are the other 10-20 levels they missed... oh they threw this in because they didn't have the time/budget/effort to finish the game... well that was a pile of trash"
Ultimately I regret paying for a taste of nostalgia followed by a heap of anticlimax but I know I would had i not experienced it anyway because I loved the original games so much, which the makers have capatilised on.
it's not a remake, it's not a HD version, it's just a minimal effort cash grab on a series that was good 15 years ago.

I've heard this from a few people, actually.

You know, it's a great (and v rare) thing to see a reply like this in HUKD Gaming: it's nice that someone's genuinely backed up their point of view without losing their rag against a passive comment. It's to be expected with R&C fans, like, but great stuff. More like this please.

looks like skyrim is oos on the ps4

I am glad you appreciate my opinion, I have realised that every time I have seen this game mentioned in a deal on this site my review for it has gotten slightly longer and more elaborate as to why it shouldn't exist, to the point I realised I was beginning to sound a lot like "zero punctuation" a very honest reviewer of video games, which made me wonder 'oh hey I haven't ever seen him review this game, I wonder if he has' and a google search later and I'm watching that video.
I am surprised that him having never played the series previously he came to most of the same conclusions as myself but have noticed they are decidedly less salty about the quantity of levels and missing content as they don't have a frame of reference, yet they can still tell how forced and rushed the game was.

So here's that review for anyone who needs a shiny video animation to go with their disdain for this game:

Yahtzee is not a serious reviewer.

The majority of people will prefer the new R&C purely for the fact that gameplay is far better than the original. There wasn't even any strafing in the first R&C. That's before we get to the first having terrible checkpoint system that most people will not like.

Skyrim on Xbox One in stock again as of right now. Finally managed to bag one at this price. Many thanks OP.

Managed to get Skyrim for Xbone. Now to carry on from the free weekend we got and complete it 100%. Stopped playing it on 360.
