  • What makes Shenmue 2's open world so special?

  • Dondiggler 05/07/2015

    We need a petition for the HD remasters to be done. My fear for Shenmue 3 is that a lot of people might buy it to jump on the bandwagon but not really get its context. I played them both back in the day and they remain, 2 of the games that changed my life. I hope that a new generation get to enjoy them and not just a condensed version as a movie in 3 Support that Kickstarter peeps!! Reply +3

  • DriveClub PlayStation Plus Edition launches with "caution" tomorrow

  • Dondiggler 24/06/2015

    Having had Driveclub since launch I've got Yo say this is the best approach. A great game curtailed by some extraordinary set backs. For PS+ users to experience online then the rollout will need to be paced. Reply 0

  • We need to talk about emulation

  • Dondiggler 31/05/2015

    Rogueywon wrote:Understand the points being made in the article, but there are broader issues at play here. The simple fact is that while a handful of favoured "legacy" titles may continue to be sold and may be ported to modern hardware by the copyright owners, this won't happen for the majority of games.A lack of commitment to backwards compatibility within the industry exacerbates this. In fact, we might be about to get bitten by a whole "lost generation" of games. The PS3 and Xbox 360 are legacy platforms now. You can still find new games for them being sold in the shops and can still find second-hand copies of almost their entire libraries fairly easily. That's not the problem here.The problem is that at some point in the next few years, new PS3 and 360 hardware will stop arriving on the shelves. Both of those consoles suffered from hardware longevity issues. In time, the number of working consoles in circulation is going to drop pretty drastically. Now, a handful of games from that generation will be given the "HD Remaster" treatment. A handful more might be ported to Steam (Valkyria Chronicles has, thank god, been rescued in this way). But with no emulation possible, 90%+ of the games from that generation are likely to be effectively impossible to play for the average gamer within a decade or so.That's a hell of a loss, particularly as it's quite possible that the group of "lost" games will include some real classics - RPGs such as Eternal Sonata and Lost Odyssey don't seem to be tipped for porting. Meanwhile, given the eccentric hardware and stringent DRM on those platforms, it seems unlikely that a third party is going to have emulation of them working any time soon.So where does this leave us? Potentially screwed. In an ideal world, copyright laws would include a requirement to keep titles in circulation or accessible. However, we all know that's going to happen. A particular fantasy of mine would be Sony and MS releasing for sale (yes, sale), at the point where they stop selling the hardware directly, their own emulators for those platforms allowing their games to be accessed on PCs. But again, it seems unlikely.There are genuine issues here with industry behaviour that the article chooses to ignore.Couldn't agree more! The gaming industries ineptitude in deciding how to manage its back catalogue creates this situation and it's damaging for everyone Reply +4

I have a Bravia and I honestly wouldn't want anything else. They make good stuff. So it may cost 50-100 more but over say 3-4 years or the lifetime of the TV it's nothing really! I've never understood the logic in paying good money for a product that you'll use everyday and then say "I'll get dat wun coz it's cheepah"...... Sheep logic!! Reply +4

That play through that was uploaded was essentially a speedrun, the uploader didn't look for any collectibles, consume some of the extra content and it was played on easy.Why is this game being hated on so much? This is weird and I feel sorry for RAD.Agreed.....the level of hate is strong! Though it dose seem to be a unfortunate trend of the times. First party exclusives being held up to ridiculously lofty expectations, by an audience than seems to critique what It hasn't yet experienced!If you can't afford to pay full price for a single player game, that has no online. That's fine... But people shouldn't use that to form a biased opinion about a game that realistically 98% of the gaming population have yet to play..These are the times we live in I'm afraid!

  • Sega to offer 300 staff voluntary retirement as it focuses on smartphone and PC online games

    Getting my Yakuza for free on ps+ but FFS Sega as my mum would say "you deserve fi get cuss" or in plain English they deserve all the rhetoric they're getting now. For years gamers, journalists hell everyone has been telling them to pull their fingers out with regards to their back catalogue... What do we get Sonic Boom FFS!! Streets of Rage would sell itself updated as a PSN or Live title. PSO? Oh no we can't be bothered! Don't get me started on Shenmue! They'd make money on it without even lifting a finger, just give the rights to Yu Suzuki "oh no that sounds far too much like common sense" It's just a real shame to see Captain Hubris strike again at my childhood favourite! Master System, Megadrive, Dreamcast..... Some absolutely awesome times!! Reply +2

  • Xbox boss points to Killer Instinct in response to Sony's Street Fighter 5 deal

  • Dondiggler 08/12/2014

    It's not like Sony just walked on with a huge sack of money and said make it for us! Let's look at the situation from capcoms point of view. They need to transition the game to new gen...but they're broke! So it makes sense for them to find a partner to help on development of the new engine. This Way they get to mitigate risk and bring out the new game. They can't use another big publisher like ea so I can see why they would lean on ms or sony. As Phil Spencer said ms already have killer instinct so again it made sense to partner with Sony. It'd be easy to say "oh it's just money hitting" honestly I think this partnership is more about survival than anything! Reply +1
