  • 26 years later, Street Fighter 2 expert reveals never-before-seen combos

  • LFace 21/03/2017

    I wouldn't say these were "never before seen" as I'm sure I noticed it donkeys years ago when I used to go to the arcade in Barnsley to play SF2.
    I'm not usually one to moan about content on websites, as it is their choice what to show, but a full article about a glitch that can *only* be done against one character, in a game that is years old and probably is known by a lot of people.. was that really necessary ?

    I dread to think how much coverage there would be if someone noticed on Sonic 1 an extra 5 pixel high flower in the background if you stand in a certain spot..

  • Nintendo Switch Street Fighter 2 first-person mode looks janky

  • LFace 16/02/2017

    It kind of is a re-release just with extra pointless additions. However at its core, it still has the massive problem the original HD version had - slapping HD sprites over the existing animation just do not work and looks awful. The juddering basic animations looked out of place back then, and now it just looks embarrassing.

    Look at the scene - crowds have 2 or 3 frames of animation. Main characters look like a fans first dabble with Mugen. It looks and feels wrong.

    The "new" characters are palette swaps. Utterly pointless additions.

    I love SF2 as much as any fan that played it on release, but come on its 2017 now and it is best served as a very cheap emulated arcade version rather than expensive rehash. Just play it on a Raspberry Pi and have done with it.

  • Brexit blamed for incoming UK App Store price rise

  • LFace 17/01/2017

    Unfortunately things will continue to go up in price as time passes. This was forewarned prior to the vote, but still the unwashed uneducated racists went out in force to "Make Britun Gret and get rid of Immigruntz" and this is what we are left with. You can put the blame on greedy companies putting price up for no reason as much as you like but the fact is everything costs more in the UK now including behind the scenes stuff you may not even think about.

    I will no doubt be negged by the 52% that thought putting our country back to the dark ages was a good idea, but frankly I do not care.

  • Unofficial fresh-start vanilla WOW server launches Saturday

  • LFace 04/01/2017

    @TheDooglet Stop playing? As cool as the thought of going back to vanilla WoW might be, this is still an unofficial and free way to play a game that should be paid for. It is piracy no matter how you swing it. Reply 0
  • Diablo 3 players divided on 20th anniversary patch

  • LFace 04/01/2017

    Free content is to be applauded not vilified. Although I don't think the anniversary content appeals to me, I still think it was a nifty idea and have no problems with it.
    Would I have preferred a Diablo 1 (or 2) remaster? Absolutely, as I never played those.

    The Necromancer is a tricky one though. It looks an interesting class and I'm all for adding content to D3 even if its only one class. Should it be paid DLC? I don't mind either way. D3 isn't a subscription game so any future content they make is technically out their own pockets (though very deeply filled pockets I might add) so should they make content for free? That's going to be varying opinions on whoever you ask. I personally don't mind and no doubt will pony up the cash for it.

    Could be worse, they could charge for the D1 content and add Microtransactions to unlock each Necromancer ability..

  • Super Mario Run review

  • LFace 16/12/2016

    I was looking forward to this. I did a moan post a few days ago berating the always on component and that still stands, but I still wanted to try it.
    I downloaded it on iPhone 6 and played demo levels.. I was bored by the end of the second level. Its just not that fun unfortunately. It plays too slow and feels like if you were playing Super Mario without knowing about the run button.

    The levels (although only seeing first two so cant comment on rest) are bland and is just coin collecting which frankly isn't entertaining. If the levels get better then it is a bad design decision as the first levels should grab you and want you to play more.

    I cant recommend the game. Not bad enough to stamp it as Avoid, but for me it is not worth £8 and playing the demo has made me sure I wont be parting with my cash.

  • Super Mario Run only playable with an internet connection

  • LFace 09/12/2016

    I'll chip in on the always online aspect. I have zero problems with a console being online only for gaming (such as my PS4) as that is connected to my router 24/7. No issue.
    On a mobile phone however? Thats dreadful and counter intuitive. People can scoff and say its 2016 and unlimited 4G data exists etc. Fair point, it does. I have an unlimited 4G sim card. I also get an hour long bus to work every day and the point where I would play on my phone. There are black spots on that route however where data does not exist. That would cause the game to be unplayable thus rendering it useless and not fit for *my* purpose.

    Stating that people have WiFi in most places and at home is not relevant at all. If you are in a fixed abode with wifi, chances are you are at home or at work - if you are at home and into gaming, I highly doubt you would be pissing about on a mobile phone and instead would be on a proper gaming machine such as a PC or Console. If you are at work, you will be working and probably get a virtual slap at the back of the head if caught gaming on your phone during work time.

    Nintendo doing this is just plain stupid and there really is no justification argument that applies.

  • Starbucks may have just spoiled a big Pokémon Go update

  • LFace 06/12/2016

    Not being sarcastic, but does anyone still play this? I'm a peasant wagon rider and daily commute to work the bus was full of people playing it when it came out. You couldn't look anywhere without seeing it. It never appealed to me not being a pokemon fan but each to their own. Nowadays? I haven't seen a single person on it. Haven't for a while in fact.

  • Board games understand the pleasures of taking things out of the box

  • LFace 29/11/2016

    I've recently got into board gaming myself and after many years of assuming they were beardy and all about painting miniatures to have a fantasy war on a little playfield like you see in Games Workshop, I have seen the light that there is so much more than that.
    Game of Thrones, Fury of Dracula, Besieged, Bloodrage, Relic are to name a few I've had a dabble in and they were all bloody good fun.

    Its become a slight addiction and I've been checking kickstarter out in the last few months (though thinking I now need to uninstall that app on my phone) and backed Dark Souls, Massive Darkness, Bears vs Babies (not quite board game but still counts), and most recently Yokai Quest which is looking pretty stunning.

    If like me you presumed board gaming to be smelly unkempt bearded blokes that have never heard of body spray then think again, it is quite a good bit of social fun to have with a few mates.

  • Lego Dimensions Easter egg references Ghostbusters movie controversy

  • LFace 03/10/2016

    didn't like the idea of a new Ghostbusters film - especially one that changed the team to be all female instead of all male.
    Except that was not the case at all for the vast majority of people. That was merely the scapegoat used by the execs who were trying to dampen the dreadful reviews and comments about how awful the trailers looked.

  • No Man's Sky modders start by shutting up your exosuit

  • LFace 17/08/2016

    @csber3 I would agree that people raging that a large dinosaur species hasnt been seen is a bit pathetic, however that Reddit thread that is doing the rounds of all content shown that appears to be cut is pretty damning.

    I'm loving the game and definitely had my moneys worth, but also disappointed that things mentioned in interviews and shown in recent trailers just isnt in the game whatsoever. The absolute silence so far from HG is pretty poor.
    If they come out and say that due to time constraints and game breaking bugs cropping up with said features, it meant they had to be cut until a future patch, then I would be ecstatic with that.

    To re-iterate, I do love the game and I am not bashing it, but it is sorely lacking in shown off features that not one person from the company has officially spoke about since release.

  • Watch: We play No Man's Sky on PC locked to 4K 60fps

  • LFace 15/08/2016

    @IronSoldier I rarely go by the critic ratings either, but the 4chan crusade genuinely happened and has completely weighted the average towards the negative side anyway. A bit pointless if you ask me, but then thats 4chan crusades for you. Reply +3
  • LFace 15/08/2016

    @IronSoldier You can completely ignore the user reviews for PS4 as 4chan had a crusade to rate it 0/10 for a while. It was getting a bashing on metacritic even before official release date. Reply +2

  • Skyrim remastered: PS4, Xbox, PC, mods and everything we know

    @zachtrevors So you're saying because the game was evidently broken and unplayable due to shoddy lighting and shadows on previous gen, that it is perfectly OK to release it again full price on current gen with only minor tweaks to visuals and leaving frame rate the same? Reply 0

    A remaster stuck at 30fps is a waste of time. Might as well play previous gen and put up with a little less details running at same speed. Reply -1
  • Minecraft's new Battle Mode season pass costs £7.99

  • LFace 21/06/2016

    I've not been keeping up with the current patches of the console versions of this, but with this being battle themed, am I to presume that they havent implemented the current fighting mechanics in the PC version such as weapon swing cooldown, swipe mechanic, dual wield, shield?
    If they havent then surely its a wasted potential to begin with.

    Its already taking the piss on how far behind console versions are, but they get away with it because its minecraft. Same with the shoddy glitches that if were present in a Ubisoft game, there would be article upon article about them.
    Curious on why Minecraft gets a free pass on things like that.

    EG - can you try and get an update on whats going on with the UK pre-order of this? Still not showing on UK PSN store, and both Sony and Ubisoft are flat out ignoring people on Twitter that are asking them about it.

    Edit - UbisoftUK have also deleted a tweet which advertised the game being available for pre-order with Stick Of Truth bonus. This is looking like UK are getting the Shaft!

    Having recently got into board gaming, I would have loved this but £80 for it is just way too steep. I'll wait until it hits retail and see what price that lands at, and if unsuccessful in the shops I'll gladly get it when it hits a sale price. Reply 0

    @jabberwocky Megadrive needed the cheat code on the warning screen (ABACABB.. thats mentally wired into my brain for life).

    Snes was censored, but in a magazine at the time (cant remember which) they ran an April fools showing how the game is even worse than the arcade and you had to cellotape a penny to the cartridge to unlock it. The magazine had mocked up screenshots showing gallons of blood and ridiculous fatalities.

  • Guitar Hero Live failed to do the business, too

  • LFace 12/02/2016

    @sanctusmortis There is widespread reports that the guitar is of wonky dubious quality and causes buttons to stick.

    Mate at work has it on xb and he had same issue, but after following video's showing to take the neck apart and wedge paper behind the circuit board, it fixed all his button issues. You obviously shouldnt need to do that with a product, but for an easy fix it could work.

    I picked up Guitar Hero for PS4 the other week when Game were flogging it for £45. I loved the originals on xb360/PS2 so thought why not. I dont regret it for one minute, but I see it is back up to full price again at around 90 quid in same shop. Thats not going to tempt anyone to pick it up.

    Only thing that bothers me with it is the limited amount of "decent" tracks, which I know is purely subjective to myself. Theres still enough content there to get my moneys worth though and I enjoy the odd 30-60 min session on the "Live tv" channel which typically has Rock or Metal hour when I'm playing which suits me to the ground.

  • What Street Fighter 5 will - and won't - have at launch

  • LFace 12/02/2016

    @alcolepone PC presumably. I'm a console gamer now on PS4, and buy everything digitally (usually using cheaper vouchers from cdkeys etc.) as I dont sell/trade games afterwards, and I occasionally use the remote play function which you cant do with multiple games that are physical.

    Dont get me wrong, im not trolling, I genuinely wanted SF5 to be awesome. I loved SF4 on xb360 but always felt it sorely lacking in content. I've been both an MK and SF fan for donkeys years, and MK has set the standard for game content to me with fighting games and if a company simply cant be bothered to provide content other than "1v1" then I see it as lazy and not trying.

  • LFace 12/02/2016

    I said it the other day and got negged, but several more people agree in this article with what I said that this is taking the piss. I know digital is usually more expensive than physical anyway, but this half arsed incomplete game is £50 on the PSN Store. £50!! It has incomplete content with a "coming in March" tag that may actually slip for several months as it is not a 100% guarantee.

    We should not be accepting this. Remember when people got pissed over horse armour DLC? Here we are years later and an unfinished game with sections containing old geocities website "Under Construction" signs slapped all over it, and is full price, and people are defending it!

  • Street Fighter 5's first DLC character, Alex, live in March

  • LFace 12/02/2016

    @Banacheck Tutorial and Training mode dont count as single player content any more than "Menu" is a special feature of a DVD.

    Story - yes. Survival - yes. NB & CFN absolutely not, they are online based. That is still a pretty low amount of content for single player in 2016 when compared to other fighting games. Capcom are yet again pushing out a basic fighter (ok the actual fighting is great and always will be, and I'm saying this as a big street fighter fan since the original 1 in the arcade as a kid) with next to no gameplay improvements since SF2 on snes.

  • LFace 10/02/2016

    @albertino Like I said previously, MK had some pretty good extras for single player for those times you dont want to play online. Quoting Counter Strike as an example doesnt hold water as that purely is a multiplayer game and has no single player to speak of (talking about original CS mod for Half Life here, no idea if modern versions have it).

    Full price for SF5 with just bog standard online 1v1 is a little steep in my eyes when you compare to other current gen fighting games that offer much much more, but that is subjective and is purely my opinion.

    Curious in seeing what single player content there will be in this having been spoiled by masses of extra gubbins in Mortal Kombat 9 and X.

    I'm not really one for going online much with fighting games as I dont have the time to put in to learn the characters well enough to go up against the folks who play online constantly, but I do love a go on single player from time to time.

    Cheers for that. It does sound intriguing and might make sense now from one particular moment I saw on Twitch when the shadows around the landscape looked a bit like the interface panel itself and I was trying to work out how the streamer solved the puzzle based on that shadow but obviously tuning in with no prior knowledge puts me massively at a disadvantage.
