    I bought WiiU day one (yes one of the few) and im now very close to getting a ps4. With it I'll get alien isolation, evil within, shadows of mordor and gta v. Yes they are all available on my 360, but i havent bought a 360 game since gta v. I have been plenty busy on my WiiU and 3ds this past 14 months and will be in the forseeable future with the great lineup to come!

    This said im not in a great rush to get my ps4, im waiting on a really good xmas deal. In short the early purchase of the wiiu has taught me that new consoles really arent needed until there's a catalogue of games to play. Ps4/xb1 are about there now and things will only get better.

    Ps4 must be bought by feb for me, im hyped for witcher 3 big time. For me, that is the first killer next gen app!

  • Watch 10 minutes of 1080p Final Fantasy 15 footage

  • DakeyrasUK 14/11/2014

    Whilst this game does look beautiful and although XIII was incredibly linear (certainly until around 15hrs in and finally getting to the opens plains) I do hope this doesn't deter too far from the battle mechanics of XIII as that had (i thought) a really good way of keeping the combat fast paced but keeping the traditional aspects intact.

    Without the combat being explained this does look a little bit like an action rpg where the buttons are melee attack, magic attack etc and you equip moves to each button. If that is the case then I'll loose interest pretty quickly as I love the tactical element of the normal Final fantasy combat - choosing what spell and what special move for the most appropriate moment of the battle.

    The above is my worry, oh and I know it would be quite odd in today's gaming but I do miss exploring on the world maps of I-IX...

    If it is just an option for people to speed through the game then why aren't there cheat codes for this currency???

    Simple, they are trying to milk money out of people...

  • Everything not saved will be lost

  • DakeyrasUK 08/11/2014

    Like a lot of other commenters, I thought "REALLY? Another Destiny article?"

    But I read it and enjoyed it it. I liked the comparison of save points in games to human progression and education bringing people up to speed - or you could say loading saved data!

    At this point I should confess, I'm a Physics teacher, so an article on Space, human existence, Brian Cox and games is ticking a lot of boxes of things I like to read about!

    Good job!

  • CD Projekt announces generous Witcher 3 DLC plan

  • DakeyrasUK 06/11/2014

    Superb! If only other developers had such passion and confidence. It absolutely shits in the face that says that DLC is the only way to make AAA gaming a viable financial model. All it takes is commitment to producing the best art that your game can be from the skill of those behind the final release. Screw market research, have the developers be gamers so they know what is needed and then we'll buy buy buy! Reply 0
  • Smash Bros. for Wii U includes eight-player battles

  • DakeyrasUK 24/10/2014

    Awesome! As someone who already has the 3DS version I'm happy about being rewarded for the double dip!

    The big thing I need from this though is to be able to send notifications that pop up on screen so my friends know I'm online and am wanting to play! Having to organise it all via facebook on a third screen isn't hard, but it is less convenient.

    Hang on, why don't they utilise the gamepad for those kind of notifications? The home button flashes blue when they send deals etc, so why not do the same whilst you play and a friend invites you to join a game, c'mon Nintendo make it so!

    I read as far as the Hack point explanation...

    Basically charging the user to do what at one point was input a cheat code. Doesn't really affect me, but still makes me less inclined to buy the game. Shame up until then I was liking what I read.

    @null I changed the controls so that the shoulder buttons are jump and the block and grab buttons are where the jump buttons were.

    It took me a while to get used to jumping (and a fair few deaths) but haveing jump on the R I am now used to and I could never get used to using the L button before...

  • DakeyrasUK 17/09/2014

    I've been "umming" and "aahing" for some time over this. I am a sucker for anything Zelda - just bought 4 classics (Awakening, Ages, Seasons and the past) from the eShop due to the current Zelda Weeks sales...

    After reading this review I'm back in the very interested camp, but with Smash Bros and Theatre Rythem (3ds) and Bayonetta 2 all out in the next 6 weeks I'm not sure I can justify buying it yet - especially as I'm strongly condsidering getting a ps4 with Shadow of Mordor when a tasty xmas deal pops up.

    Perhaps I should wait for it to be cheap - that or a special birthday treat for my self (I'm 30 next month)!

    Edit: also totally blanked the fact I want the PS4 for Alien Isolation as well!

    @Carroceiro Oh, didn't realise that! I only played my mates copy for a few hours to complete the story and get a fair feel for the new game - I refused to pay for GZ until it's cheap and MGS V is about to come out..

    Well cool, I might just do that with MGS V then!

    @SarcasticJoe I have noproblems with Keifer Sutherland as an actor. It did bug me playing GZ and it not being Hayter's voice though.

    In my opinion English voice acting makes for a generally poorer experience compared with Japanese voice acting. As I don't speak Japanese I can identify the spoken tone by reading the text, but don't know if it sounds poor to someone who speaks Japanese. Where as in English, I detect the bad delivery of line very easily.

    This, together with a loss in translation and a change in original script due to the desire to keep the spoken words in sync with character animation are the reason why all my Asian films (and games where possible) are watched with the native audio and English subtitles.

  • DakeyrasUK 18/09/2014

    @Pwnsweet Shame games don't let you listen to the original Japanese with English subtitles ala Blu-rays!

    Having said that Xenoblade Chronicles allowed just that! Maybe this game will and you won't have to listen to KS's voice!

    Definitely not one for a steam sale in a few years time. Story is awful and it hasn't been reviewed because of how bad it'll come across on empty servers, so in a few years time servers will be nowhere the current levels.

  • Sunset Overdrive Season Pass detailed and priced

  • DakeyrasUK 10/09/2014

    I just find this season pass stuff depressing. I don't remember it existing 4 or so years ago before COD sold 4 maps for a tenner (or something like that) and the COD-ites lapping it up. Note: I confess to buying one pack for the COD Black Ops, was very unimpressed with the value so never bought one again (or another COD). That said, my friends I played Black Ops with still buy COD and all the packs - some of them now get the season passes to "save" a little bit of money.

    Anyway, getting to my point, they caught on massively for COD so they are now for being pushed on to all/most AAA games as well as some smaller budget games. People may prefer the convenience of the digital download days, but I damn miss buying completely working games, with FREE unlockables of extra costumes/player skins/weapons/cheats etc. One of my proudest gaming moments growing up was unlocking the no radar cheat for Goldeneye on the N64. Instead of this sort of stuff being in games we have micro-transactions to access all the game or macro transactions (DLC) for bigger chunks of the full game.

    Oh well...

    @GRASSYKNOLL

    Well, there seems to be a lot of people posting that the customer services are confirming the only edition Amazon are stocking is the special edition with both copies!!!

    So for 31.85, you can't go wrong!

    Amazon Product Questions


    EDIT: Well, I just received an email from Amazon saying they have a revised delivery date for my pre-order. I check the website and all mention of Bayonetta has been removed from the product description. Also more answers have been given to above product question that confirm that Bayonetta isn't included despite being told the exact opposite yesterday...

    The AmazonBayonetta is currently priced at 31.85 and it states in the product description that it includeds Bayonetta 1...

    If preordered, then surely they are obliged to give whatever cheapest copy contains both for that price?

  • Mario Kart 8 getting Zelda and Animal Crossing DLC

  • DakeyrasUK 27/08/2014

    Not a fan of DLC in general, however I did get a completely free game with Mariokart 8 (which I'm guessing most people did), so to spend a further 11 on an extra 50% of tracks is by no means a rip off.

    In short 51 for 48 tracks of MK8 and Zelda WW = me one happy customer!

  • Watch six minutes of Bloodborne gameplay

  • DakeyrasUK 20/08/2014

    @OnlyJoeKing

    No I haven't played any of the other Souls games. I'm sure there is more to the combat than meets the untrained eye. I just want them to demostrate as such to sell me what looks like a visually stunning game.


    I guess my lack of interest is born from the trailer not being geared to fostering new players and more being fan service to those who know the games and want to see a glimpse of the new game at an early stage.

    Also, it is unfortunate to release this teaser the same day as CD PR release one of the most comprehensive gameplay trailers that i have seen!

  • DakeyrasUK 19/08/2014

    Looks incredibly well animated. But, allow me my opinion, I was quite bored with the gameplay...

    Could be because I just watched the 35 minute Witcher 3 gameplay vid, which had music and story as well to help sell the experience. I just found this void of any soul other than being great graphics.

  • Watch Dogs is Ubisoft's last mature game for Wii U

  • DakeyrasUK 19/08/2014

    At the moment I only have a WiiU, will most likely buy a ps4 during the xmas deal season. I've had the WiiU since launch and bought ZombiU and AC3. I still have my 360 (on which I played every other AC game) so could have bought it on that system, unfortunately AC3 has killed the franchise for me.

    I was very excited about getting watchdogs on wiiU, but then AC3 and 4 were both poorly ported on to wiiU. So why would anyone expect different from Watchdogs?

    In short, of course the "mature" games have sold poorly, you have made them inferior and/or delayed to the system.

    I have played some watchdogs on my friends XB1 (spidertank was great fun), however all interest in the game has waned since it was released.

  • Metal Gear Solid 5's cardboard box gets some peculiar new features

  • DakeyrasUK 12/08/2014

    Though I agree that this detracts from the realism of the game world, I don't agree with that being bad thing.

    Metal Gear Solid games have always had a self deprecating/jokey side to remind us all not to take it too seriously despite the adult themes of the plot.

    As for being degrading to women, I agree that some will find it (justifiably) offensive, I prefer to look at it as a cartoon mocking men lust and desires.

    To be honest, this represents good value for money for those that like EA games and parents who can't afford the latest games for their children.

    However, I fear it being a way to transition to digital only games and the end of the consumers owning the games they play. It may take several years to achieve, but for that reason I shall not be subscribing.

  • Digital Foundry vs The Last of Us Remastered

  • DakeyrasUK 28/07/2014

    Just watched the 3GB video on my laptop connected to my hd tv. It looks great, no denying that and at 60fps it is very smooth.

    It makes me wish that all next gen games were 1080p and 60 fps, and to achieve this developers would scale back the "next gen" graphical processes that are seemingly the reason for games not being able to have 1080p 60 fps.

  • Speedrunner sets new world records for Ocarina of Time in 18.10

  • DakeyrasUK 23/07/2014

    I appreciate the precision involved in getting to the end game of Ocarina of time so quickly, but I'm a purest and to me he has cheated his way to completing the game in 18:10. I get that the argument is that if it was in the game on release blah blah blah, but ask the developers if they would rather those bugs never existed...

    If he found all these bugs himself I guess he deserves credit, but let's not get carried away, he pushed a few buttons in a correct sequence for no more than a few minutes at a time - something he has probably spent many hours to achieve.

    I'm more impressed by people getting 100% on Guitar Hero...

  • Sony: PS4 targeting Wii owners who skipped PS3 and Xbox 360

  • DakeyrasUK 15/07/2014

    Another thing that irks me about this article is the idea of needing remasters of ps3 games. As has been mentioned ps now should be all that is needed. Or, how about releasing a console that is backwards compatible? Nintendo seem to manage it just fine.

    Missed the Wii as well as the 360 and ps3? Well which console plays the most games? That's right the WiiU with its entire Wii catalogue.

    I'd much rather developers were spending their time on new games than rather than games of 5 years ago, let alone last year! I'm sure more people who missed the ps3 would buy a ps4 if it played ps3 games. I know it would be the difference between me getting one and my current plan of saving 700 to get a new gaming pc!
