  • Microsoft buys Mojang and Minecraft for $2.5bn

  • Kremlik 15/09/2014

    Whelp this feels like a buyout mostly in the vain hope the Minecraft players to Project Spark to me, well they couldn't buy LBP off Sony could they...

    Well there is a lot more clones out there now, then there's Terraria and Sony'a Landmark to play any who. I kinda feel MS got a bit conned as Notch may have felt the IP has reached its peak..

    Oh and does this mean Scrolls is dead? Most likely

  • Destiny thrills, but the big picture rings hollow

  • Kremlik 10/09/2014

    @SpaceMonkey77 'That reviews can be held hostage in the name of money. Very cheeky bastard clever, Actiblizz. (No one else better try this shit again'

    How is this the case when the servers didn't go live until a few days ago? It's not like EG or in fact anyone could play the game until then and IF a 'review' came out at this point there would be a massive cry of fowl play at the reviewer..

    I think you are looking for reasons to hate where there is none

    @SavageEvil Unsure if your agree with me or misreading what I meant, but aye Bungie never stated it was a 'MMOFPS' that was all the media's doing, I think sadly this will blow up in Bungie's face despite not doing anything wrong.. Reply +1

    The issue with Destiny isn't the game itself, it's the media behind it. With the media screaming 'ITS A MMOFPS!!!' Bungie continually tried to tempter that down and even had articles up stating so - yet the same sites screamed it was the second coming of gaming... Which because of the hype has fallen on it's face a little, it's an OK game but nowhere near what the media was making it out to be.

    Don't get me wrong the game DOES do a lot right, I like the options of leveling, via open world missions, bounties and even PVP (even tho a little unbalanced currently due to skills/level gaps), plus the web/hub content will make me want to collect everything.

    Destiny to me is Halo meets, Borderlands/Diablo meets Fantasy Star Online and that's not a bad thing in my eyes, it's a great vanilla title to a new IP and I think a lot of people AND media set the bar WAY to high on the first title of a known set of games comming, no it's NOT all the Halos and 10 years of WoW in one title, it doesn't have to be..

    ---

    For another point of view with media 'hype' I would go look at two videos Totalbiscuit made, I know many people don't like him but he has a point

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cd13fE5WJ3c&list=UUy1Ms_5qBTawC-k7PVjHXKQ - is about writers making hype articles on products not yet out or in some cases not even in alpha

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e78JRIHRjC0&index=1&list=UUy1Ms_5qBTawC-k7PVjHXKQ - just about rounds up the current situation in the media in general considering the shitstorm we've had resently

  • Hyrule Warriors originally much closer to a traditional Zelda game

  • Kremlik 06/09/2014

    @elfergos Well for one it's not like Nintendo replaced a 'Zelda' title for this, they are still working on Zelda U.

    I disagree with you, 'more' Zelda is always good but 'the same Zelda' for this long? Nope.

    Put it this way Zelda fits the DW style to a t, it's about time we had something different from that IP to just freshen it up a bit, and it seems like that gamble payed off, other then the ones with the blatant ''we' just want YET ANOTHER Zelda formula title and nothing else will do' people are taking it as an alternate form to Zelda well, and if it does get a sequel then they can easily start dropping the blatant clones bits and start directing it to a more 'Zelda feel'.

    If games stuck to their 'original style' then we wouldn't have any innovation - We wouldn't have the Prime series has Metriod is an 'action platformer not an FPS', Yoshi or Luigi wouldn't have there own series as they wouldn't be used outside of 'powerup' and 'player 2' status as that what the Mario series originally was, and you can forget about sports games, karting, Parties RPGs and Smash Bros as that is SO far from the original idea it's silly.

    IPs can work outside of their concept ideas they just need a good fit

  • Leading creators back latest Tropes vs Women video

  • Kremlik 27/08/2014

    This was talked about last night on a podcast, it came down to the point, YES it is a good subject matter to talk about, HOWEVER Anita tends to twist certain situations in gaming and take things WAY out of context to push her point across.

    Her method is all wrong and opens it up to a ton of criticism, if she hadn't had done her videos that way, then the backlash from BOTH sides wouldn't be this bad.

    People comment about subject - there you go EG more subject matter to pad out a slow news day, I'm sure you can turn this into at least 3 articles plus 2 videos just for the hit count...

  • Mistwalker's F2P Terra Battle to get more content based on number of downloads

  • Kremlik 27/08/2014

    A business expansion model based on the number of downloads for a free to download title?

    It's going to really backfire as they WILL get the download numbers as it's free, unless they turn around and say 'well if it's holding 2 million in X' the retention rate will be quite low considering most only play 'stamina system' titles for a week or two at most before getting bored.

    That said considering this isn't the first iOS game made by a former/current SE employee not based on FF itself with most being actually been good (BESIDES ATB) I'll be checking it out

    @GamerFreak I see one game for the Vita in that list, yea, most likely most of us have the Vita has the handheld with console, but lets be honest half that list is either tat or -re-releases/yearly updates..

    I doubt sales will be bad enough to fail considering as of then most GOOD sales people count sales past Christmas for those titles too considering how close it is

    @karlo87 Sorry but all I'm hearing is: "Whaaa wheres my AAA titles that I'm demanding to be on the handheld just like the consoles"

    This is all I hear EVERY time a Vita title in mentioned, yup, Vita isn't a 'portable PS3' as first advertised however what it's turned into is a great place for new IP with those bizarre and anime based Japanese titles we would never have gotten on a 'AAA' platform as the market is too competitive on them.

    LOVED Soul Sacrifice and I wouldn't have played Disgaea otherwise, not to mention Rainbow Moon is a great title to have on the platform.

    This and Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment I'm really looking forward to the most however theres a metric ton of obscure titles I've never heard I really want to try..

    Tired of the sequel rush on the consoles - get a Vita for something new

  • The Pokémon Trading Card Game is coming to iPad

  • Kremlik 16/08/2014

    @MikkyX Putting aside the digital conversion titles. Shadow Era is the main one that springs to mind first as it's another cross platform one, it plays not unlike the original WoW TCG.

    The UI needs a little bit of an update but otherwise it's fine and it now has extended itself into physical cards this past year.

    Another cross platform CCG is Might and Magic Duel of Champions, it's got a bit of a learning curve in it's design but it's the most different, however I'm not too fond of the business model as it works on either heavy grinding or the 'normal' payment of set decks and booster packs.

    Also while not unlike the 'evolve and collect' RPG CCGs, Order & Chaos Duels is not a bad game..

    Also I'm not quite sure if an iOS version is planned but keep an eye on Hex, it's got an interesting MMO hybrid going on, also Infinity Wars is due out on iOS at some point

    I just find it funny that the subheading considers Hearthstone it's sole rival - the way the market is right now neither game can be considered the sole CCG 'leader' on the platform as iOS (and Android) hosts many many digital conversions of actual CCGs/LCG/Deckbuilders and thats not including the digital conversions of board games, and 'evolve and collect' style of games swarming both platforms.

    and Shadow Era says hi.

    @rt13 the reasons are many but I think the core reason is the fact this that iOS is almost standardized across the Apple platforms, whereas Android not only has different versions but different hardware builds to deal with.

    It's just a heck easier to build a stable version for iOS then Android, and with the amount of phones and versions it's unlikely to become standardized across the platforms - thus it's going to longer to build for

  • P.T. is more than a teaser - it's a great game in its own right

  • Kremlik 15/08/2014

    @OmegaNemesis28 I've been reading a LOT of people's threads on it - it seems certain 'triggers' they did the first time they couldn't do again.

    I suspect there is a little bit of RNG just to keep people thinking and it's not exactly straight forward, I kinda like that.

    Got right to the end, but couldn't trigger the ending, which is a shame (or as Reddit thinks only certain playthrus/players 'are chosen').

    Thankfully my Eternal Darkness training helped me thru the fake outs and 'glitches', I really do hope we get the same fourth wall breaking mindfucks in the main game.

    Jump scares are one thing but 'Hideo screens' are another :)
