    @Merefield Tried it. He watched some YT videos to get him started and was put off by the perceived complexity of it all.

    His start point is the same as mine when I first plugged my Speccy in. But all I had to do was plug it in, turn it on and start typing. He has to configure the shit out of Pi first. and he couldn't overcome that hurdle.

    I also installed Visual basic for him and got him to watch some beginner videos for C++. Again. The whole thing was just too much for him.

    We had to learn this:
    10 PRINT "GigiFusc is king"
    20 GOTO 10

    He has to learn about methods and classes and what's private and what's public etc.

    People say it's easier today - and yes it is in most ways. But not as easy as my code above. :)

    @Zanxion22 Yeh, I wouldn't argue there. Although I might go back a bit further and point the finger at the SNES and Megadrive. They were the first time that the majority of young people like me moved away from keyboards, mice and operating systems. Reply 0

    @ShiftyGeezer Unfortunately the Raspberry Pi is very difficult to approach. I think it's a great idea but getting one of those things to work is a right royal pain the arse.

    I turned on my Spectrum or C64 and BASIC was right there infront of my eyes - I had no choice but to use it to load games! With the Amiga, I just had to put in a floppy disc and again, it was right there. These things at this level need to be accessible by the vast majority - that's why smartphones are SO popular!

    Make the curtain BEHIND the technology as accessable as the tech itself and I think kids will go to it.

    Youtube is another example of accessability - ANYONE can make a video very easily and upload it. There are very few hoops to jump through. I made my first PS4 gameplay video a few weeks ago and despite a few minor problems managed to record t and get it up on my channel substantially easily that I'll definately give it another go.

    The other problem with the Pi of course is that they expected youngsters to buy it AS a piece of tech. Wrong way round IMO - make the entertainment first and allow people to use the tech as a byproduct. If the Pi had the latest versions of FIFA and CoD etc on it, you would have seen it blow up. That's why I'm saying get MS, Sony, Nintendo, Samsung and Apple to give easy access to their tech.

    @andyhair agree. 100%. Kids consume games. We consumed them too - but we also learned technology as a byproduct.

    Smartphones are a realy good example. On the one hand, they are truly amazing technology. On the other hand, they teach very little about technology other than how to use the devices - hence we have people who struggle when using Android phones if they are more accustomed to iPhones and vice versa.

    If Apple opened their tech up a bit and made it dead simple for kids to create apps and games and put them on their iPhones, I think it would be a very good thing. But they make that process so difficult unless you already know what you're doing.

    @jamster126 I think it's more the idea of what is more valid as a social pastime - actually doing something in the physical world with those friends (football etc) or sitting on the couch and interacting with them through a virtual world?

    I found it very interesting that the Pokemon craze of last summer brought so many parents and kids together under the wing of a video game. This showed me that it isn't the video game per sei that parents abject to - it's the sitting around on a couch infront of the TV bit.

    So, the problem with what he's saying is that USING these devices is only teaching children tech at a very basic level. They have no concept of the understanding of the tech itself.

    I'm going to sound like a real old fogie here but..... in my day, growing up with ZX Spectrums, C64's, Amigas and home built PC's - they were games machines as far as I was concerned but because they came with fully usable operating systems, keyboards and mice, I not only became comfortable with using tech (something that has seen me through my career) but understood at a moderate level what was behind that tech. I.e. I knew about PCB's, memory, hard drives, floppy drives etc.

    The OS being built in also got me interested in that side of it and I learned a little about s/w and writing code etc.

    Now, whilst I learned that stuff between a basic to moderate level, other kids liked it so much, they took it much further. That gave us the balance of spectrum we needed of kids being comfortable with tech their whole lives as well as kids growing up to be tech heads.

    With the advent of consoles, the 'understanding' part of that balance has been almost totally lost. Kids are comfortable with tech but when it stops working.... All they can do is replace it. Not all kids of course - some will go on to gain that understanding, but I think it's in far less numbers than it was back in the 80's and 90's.

    The best thing we can do right now is try and get Sony, MS and Nintendo to agree opening up a bit of their console tech and get kids programming and getting into their machines again. The Net Yaroze was a brilliant idea and XBLA Indie was too (albeit flawed in implementation).

    Ian Livingstone (of fighting Fantasy fame) has long been trying to resolve this by getting Govts to push programming into schools, which is brilliant. Unfortunately, the stuff they learn is pretty naff - a bit of Scratch and not much more.

    Fuck that. Get them in their with C++ and get them kids coding. Make them pull computers and consoles apart and get a look at the insides! Get them soldering FFS!

    I just finished HZD last week and am mopping up a few side quests before moving on to the next game. I really struggled with it at first. There's a lot of stuff that I found confusing when I first started the game but I found the more I persevered, the more I understood the game world and how to approach things.

    I still think they made a lot of schoolboy errors - the UI elements are pretty poor (inventory, trading etc) and the dialogue/acting is awful. Truly awful. (I almost stopped playing because i had so little engagement with the story).

    Again, perseverance paid off for me and the story kicks in half way through. Combat was the same - struggled at first, but got better and better.

    Now that I'm almost done with it, I can appreciate a lot of the good stuff in it and have really enjoyed playing (despite a lot of frustrations). The pull of hunting those awesome beasts overcame everything for me in the end and now, I'm strong enough and skilled enough at combat to overcome most creatures coming for me. But more than that, I enjoy the combat now.

    The game's greatest failure IMO is that it did an awful job of teaching non hard players how to play their actual game. And I'm not talking about handholding - I hate that - I'm talking about teaching players the rules of their world. Had they taught me a little better than they did, I would surely have enjoyed the game at an earlier stage than I did.

    Oh. and the narrative. They really should have written better dialogue and voice acting.

    Excellent game. Had some really good ideas. Didn't go far enough in the depth and mechanics departments to be considered great, but very good nonetheless.

    Things I'm wondering:

    1. Will it be a straight port or will they have used the time to add more depth and gameplay mechanics?

    2. Do I get some money off as I already bought the PS4 version*? :(

  • Why Wii U ports on Switch are good for Nintendo - and for us

  • Gigifusc 16/07/2017

    @electrolite well I can only say that "being underpowered" is simply not a reason I've heard people use for not buying one. Maybe when it was first announced people compared it to the ps4 and xb1 and yes it is not as powerful. But very quickly that became irrelevant as there were simply not enough games on the bloody thing.

    The rest of your points aren't due to hardware issues. It wasn't the internal architecture that stopped people publishing on it - it was the facts that they couldn't be bothered or didn't want to swallow the cost of not just porting their game but having to do unique features and mechanics for the pad. The WiiU is as easy to code for as any other console.

    The pad is a personal issue. Nintendo have a history of new pad designs that take getting used to. That pad was perfectly usable by most people and again, I've never heard anyone say they wouldn't buy the console because of the pad.

    The 480p screen is what it is. It's a bit like saying the iPad screen is rubbish because it doesn't do 4K. Again. Very little limitation as a result of it. Games look fine on that screen. The only slight issue is that it didn't feel as slick as an iPad but once more - for me at least - not a reason why millions of people didn't buy one.

    We'll have to agree to disagree but for me, it was ALL about the lack of top games. The best game on it was a rerelease for goodness sake (wind walker)

  • Gigifusc 16/07/2017

    @electrolite sorry. Can't agree with that at all. I don't care what anyone says, as a platform the WiiU was bloody brilliant. It had almost no faults. The power was there - just see zelda BotW as example. Or zelda WW. Or Batman city or assassins creed. Huge open works games that had no problem working on the machine.

    The problem was 100% Nintendo's incompetence at marketing the console (I've seen research years ago to indicate casual non games enthusiast Wii owners thought it was an extra iPad type screen for the Wii) plus the fact that Nintendo failed miserably to get 3rd parties onboard coupled with their reluctance to invest in more 1st party games - ffs we didn't even get a proper Mario game and the first new zelda was released after the console died!

    @FenderMaster Luigi's mansion 2 on 3DS was one of the best puzzle adventure games ever made. Why they didn't make a WiiU 3rd game is beyond me as it was perfect for the system. Another let down by Nintendo IMO.

    A new Switch game would again be great news. For me, not quite, but almost would push me over the edge with zelda, Mario's and Luigi's mansion - but a 3rd game not a rerelease - to buying the console.

    But then again, the 50 price tag would still put me off so.......

  • Gigifusc 15/07/2017

    @electrolite so that's fair enough from a numerical POV. Although you seem to be missing the full list of WiiU re-releases. But still. The one thing for me personally is that very few of those are games that I want to play enough to buy the console. They are mostly the equivalent of PS4's 5 super indie cheap jobs.

    The only game that is of real interest at the moment is Zelda with Mario on the horizon. The others are a bit meh for me personally.

    And with monster hunter coming to PS4 and XB1.... well, the reasons for splashing out 400 odd quid on a Switch are just not many right now for me at least. :)

    Sorry. Neg me all you want but this is some seriously Nintendo biased spin in this report. I love the idea of the switch and as soon as the console and the games drop to prices that aren't ridiculous, I'm buying one.

    But to try and convince people that rereleases dominating in numbers over new releases on a new console is just nonsense. Sorry.

    Don't get me wrong I'm happy with rereleases - really don't have a problem with them at all. But they should not dominate the release schedule over new games.

  • Horizon Zero Dawn gets a big new update today

  • Gigifusc 07/07/2017

    I bought it in the sale a couple of weeks ago. I really like the premise but am struggling with the game tbh. The characters and narrative are pretty awful IMO and although the world itself is right up there as one of the best open world worlds in any game, I'm really not feeling Aloy, her story, NPC's or their problems.

    Can't help but feel that the design of the game itself could have been better. I was expecting Monster Hunter with mech dinosaurs but I feel like it's Witcher 3 with mech dino's instead. And I didn't like Witcher 3 as much as everyone else did either so....

    (Yes, I know I'm gonna get negg'd for that comment, but what can I do? Lie and say I loved it? I didn't. Sorry. Live with it.

  • ZeniMax faces lawsuit from singer Dion over Fallout 4 promo

  • Gigifusc 07/07/2017

    I find it interesting that most people's first reaction to this story is 'ah, the old bugger wants more cash'.

    Unless I'm wrong, the quote from the article is not a quote from Dion himself - "renegotiated a higher fee to overcome the negative association he saw in these promos." Those are Jeffrey Matulef's, the author of the piece's words.

    I'm not saying Dion isn't after more money, I'm just saying that the quotes from his side don't even mention remuneration. They discuss only the violent imagery used in the trailer with his song as a background to be the cause of the unhappiness.

    It's also worth noting that Dion was born, raised and wrote that song at a very different time to the one we are living in today. As someone who was born in 1970, I remember this song and the movie it was associated to. People who were born in the 50's and 60's had a very different view of the world even from us 70's children. So I wouldn't be surprised if Dion is upset simply by the association with the violence and not by the money.

    Having said that. I could be wrong. I'm just saying, give a guy the benefit of the doubt at least.

  • Crash Bandicoot is 3D gaming's underrated pioneer

  • Gigifusc 19/06/2017

    Ok. A bit of history re-writing going on here. Crash was a distant cousin when it came to quality platformers during that time. As loads have said here, we were playing Mario64, Banjo, Croc, 40 winks, Ape escape (couple of years later) as was Jak and Daxter, Spyro. Heck I'd argue Bugs Bunny lost in time was better than Crash.

    CB was a fun but very shallow game in comparison to all of those others. It was almost totally about racing to the end using nothing but twitch skills and learning the linear level layout by heart. I recently played through the entire game using emulator save states and I'm really not sure how anyone could finish it on the original system - it was hard as hell in some places, unfairly so.

    Crash as a character definately has his place in gaming history but his games never really reached the heights of his contemporaries (although Mind over Mutant was pretty good if memory severs??). For me, he was always a 3rd tier platformer. And that's not from someone who dislikes the games or the character - I'm a fan. But let's not artificially raise his games in history. :)

  • Why are some Monster Hunter fans upset about a new game in the series?

  • Gigifusc 16/06/2017

    @gudnikristinn See. People say that. And they're right for sure. But that change (that actually began with 4) has kept the series going to this day because it was getting seriously stale. It's one of the biggest challenges developers face when creating long running series. They become stale, the audience turns off and your 100M IP becomes worthless overnight.

    At least RE kept going and remained interesting despite not really appealing to me past 5.

    Let's not beat around the Monster Bush here. Those MH fans that are pissed off and angry - for whatever reason - will be handing their money to Capcom regardless of what console its on. Heck, those guys will buy Xbox ones and PS4's to play it. MH is like crack cocaine for their hardcore fans in the same way WoW is for their fanbase.

    Yeh, you might get the odd person who is rebellious enough to not buy it, but that's a tiny percentage.

    Me? I'm just over the moon that it's coming to PS4 cos I can't see myself buying a Switch for at least another year and a half and I'm not a huge 3DS player so.... perfect! ;)

    I guess it's a personal thing - if you're going to get 150 worth out of it every year, then it's worth it. Not sure how I'd quantify that value though.

    For what it's worth - I think PSNow isn't for me either.

  • Mass Effect series "on ice" following Andromeda disappointment

  • Gigifusc 12/05/2017

    Yeh, I saw this coming tbh. A lot of different things at play for me. An all new storyline that left behind a highly praised one with all the loved characters removed. That's a tough call from the off IMO. The animation quality blew up. Tough start. Reviews were mixed. And to top it all off, the cost of the game was sky high premium. (I think it was going for over 50 on PSN, which must have put a certain demographic off - it did me - I was waiting for it drop price before I bought it).

    I also think dropping the save feature also played a part. It was such a major part of playing all three previous games. They really should have found a way to upload your save files into the new game but also - if I've understood, there was never a save intended between Andromeda and its sequels right?

    I guess I'm saying the decisions they made weren't the right ones - at least for me - and then to top it off with tech issues etc. Any one of those things can cause a game to fail, but when all of them are in play? Becomes very difficult to continue.

    I really hope they do make another one. I'll have to wait to play before I make a call on the new characters and storyline but the ME universe and the general core gameplay is pretty damn fantastic IMO. Even the IP itself is just too valuable to throw away surely? Sad anyway.

    @TekMerc Oh. Now there's a question. I just always assumed it was owned by SE. So I'm not 100% sure. Sorry. Reply 0
  • Gigifusc 11/05/2017

    Hmm. Difficult to know what's going on here tbh. Certainly the latest Hitman game has received critical acclaim. The profit numbers aren't available so it could be that they haven't made as much money as the review scores hint at. I'm not convinced of that tbh. The series gained a lot of press thanks to the timed assassinations and usually, that kind of PR and marketing leads directly to $$$.

    I'm more inclined to think that this is more to do with their next project than the current Hitman. It could be that the next thing came in at just too high a cost. Square are not in a position to spend 50/60M on a new Hitman game. Their biz model just doesn't work that way. That kind of cash is really reserved for their real big mass audience hitters like Tomb Raider and Final Fantasy's.

    Instinct tells me IO have been given an opportunity to find themselves a new publisher who will back them to the tune that they feel they deserve. I'm also assuming that means NOT the Hitman series because as SE owned IP, they are hardly going to give it up - unless the new owner pays for it of course.

    Where Square are concerned (at the least the western side anyway) they are a very financially calculated company - they don't really make decisions based on sentiment. If it doesn't make financial sense to continue developing with IO, they'll let the company go and won't look back. That might sound pretty cold from a game lovers POV, but they are certainly a business first and a games company 4th.

  • Nintendo patent hints at VR support for Switch

  • Gigifusc 16/12/2016

    SO happy that Nintendo are doing this. VR is going to explode pretty soon and the number of game experiences you can now have on the Switch just multiplied by 1000.

    Considering I wasn't interested when they first announced, the possible low price point + VR has now put me solidly in the 'getting one' camp.

    For those that doubt VR - I was one of you. Honestly, I thought it would a flash in the pan, same as 3D cinema and TV's. But now that I'm working with it and have tried a whole bunch of stuff, the difference it makes to 'presence' in any game is unbelievable. The problem at the moment is that most of us don't really know how to use it properly yet. So we're creating bits of experience here, bits of experience there and none of it is giving huge amounts of gameplay (it's a lot of WOW moments), nor much depth etc.

    But as we develop more VR games, we'll learn to overcome problems such as how to do FPS in VR and once some clever clogs has done that? Whooo! We won't need to fake world we live in now. :)

    And of course, the cost is a real problem - but that will go down. Google Daydream is pretty cool and over the next 6 months to a year, there'll be good stuff on that I think. :)

    BTW - for anyone who has the full Rift setup (including controllers), have a play of Bullet train. It's fricking awesome. :)

  • The Wii U a failure? Far from it

  • Gigifusc 04/11/2016

    Personally speaking, I ultimately judge a console on how many great games I play on it. The WiiU is probably the console with the least amount of great games according to my own personal preference ever.

    The best game on the console for me was the Windwaker remake. A remake should not be the best game on any console. (although as a unique piece of gaming, maybe this game stands alone).

    3D Mario world was ok but not as good as either Galaxy games or 3D Land on 3DS IMO.
    New SMBU was good but the formula is starting to show its age for me.
    Pikmin was good but not as good as 2.
    Splatoon just wasn't my kind of game at all but I accept a lot of Nintendo fans loved it.
    Cpt Toad was a great idea but lacked enough depth and variety to keep me interested for very long.
    MK8 was.. MK8. Added nothing more to the previous 3 or 4 iterations.
    Smash bros isn't my kind of game but again, I know a lot love it.
    Rayman legends was possibly the best example (Nintendo World aside) of how to use the gamepad and the TV at the same time - a very good game.


    Beyond that, I'm struggling to even mention anything else.

    Considering I paid top dollar for it when it was first released, it's been the most disappointing games machine I've purchased - and I've purchased pretty much all the mainline ones since the 80's

    U3 had a very slow start for me. The flashback to Drakes childhood was particularly dull and the pacing poor. But once you got past the first 2/3 odd hours it got better and better and then, you hit the ship and sea level and it becomes one of the best games levels ever created. Hell, the game's worth playing just to experience the sea simulator IMO.

    It does of course suffer from the getting stuck in a particular location problem but tbf, that's an issue for all linear games.

    Levine's an arsehole. Sorry. I know many see him as some kind of genius and will buy the shit from his shoe if he sold it, but he's a typical Napolean twat who uses and abuses people at his whim. I'll never give him a penny of my money again - and that's coming from someone who fricking LOVED Bioshock. Reply 0

    @DakeyrasUK Yeh, that's all fine. Not arguing against you. I'm just saying that the description 'endless runner' has become wider reaching than just the Temple Run type game. Mario Run fits the general description of the genre title. (Not being funny but, it's even in the games title! Reply 0

    @DakeyrasUK Technically, you're correct of course. But the term 'endless runner' has changed I feel and is more a description of one-button games where the player character is automatically running and you have no control to, nor is the game designed for you to, stop.

    The Rayman touch screen games are another example of this.

    It's a decent enough game. Not a patch on the original though - really lost a lot in translation for me at least. Went from a 10/10 to about a 6.5. Reply 0

    @Mar27w When you don't renew, do you lose your entire library or are they still there once you renew? Reply +1
