  • First-person VR Pac-Man is as ridiculous as it sounds

    I tried this with the Fallout 4 demo on Thursday, it does make you feel like a complete twat (and knackers you in the process.) Luckily my partner was filming it all which confirmed I looked like a complete twat. Also really nothing can prepare you for how slippery the surface is when you step inside it. Definitely recommend.

  • Disgruntled No Man's Sky players thrust Sony's PS4 refund policy back into the spotlight

    In instances where players receive a refund, they will of course be able to re-purchase the game at later date and play.

    Is this part of some Jedi mind trick strategy?

    "Give me a refund"

    "No, look at our policy"

    "Your policy is crap, give me a refund."

    "You can have a refund if your claim is in line with our policy, but don't worry - you'll still be able to re-buy it later!"

    "Oooh!"

  • Classic Spectrum game Skool Daze gets official remake

  • LazyDan 17/08/2016

    Oh awesome, I was only revisiting the 'Back to Skool: Klass of 99' DOS remake a few days ago (which is excellent and still highly worth a look.)

    Definitely time for a modern version of this game. Mobile and tablet only signals bad things, but the screenshots look faithful (love the Spectrum logo on the dialogue boxes.)

    Can't wait to slap Einstein when he grasses me up for truancy for the 50th time again.

    EDIT: Oh god no, looking at enlarged versions of the screenshots... why do the characters look so ghoulish like something out of a Salad Fingers clip!?

  • Fan-made Pokémon Uranium pulled after 1.5m downloads

  • LazyDan 15/08/2016

    @ShiftyGeezer @Binba42 They have a long history of everything to do with plumbing their classics - re-releases, emulation *and* remakes.

    Their very first example was a remake - Super Mario All Stars (those individual games also were then re-made again for the GBA.) They remade Mario Bros for the GBC, they've done various Zeldas (Ocarina of Time & Majora's Mask to 3DS, Wind Waker to Wii U - both were graphical do-overs with new content.) Kirby's Dream Land was upgraded and in Kirby Super Star, Pokemon Red & Blue got FireRed & LeafGreen on the GBA then again Ruby & Sapphire were remade in X&Y's engine as OmegaRuby & AlphaSapphire. There was the whole New Play Control! remake series for the Wii (Jungle Beat, Power Tennis etc.) NES Metroid got a 16-bit re-release on the GBA, as well as the waggle remakes of Metroid Prime for the Wii. Star Fox (N64 -> 3DS)... Even recent stuff - Wii Sports games were remade for the Wii U.

    I love that Nintendo are frequently criticised for opposing things ("Release a new Mario!" "Oh my god not another Mario, make new IP!"), and this I think is my favourite example of that (too many remakes/re-releases is the usual criticism).

    It really benefits from the smoother framerate. I regret getting it on PS4 rather than PC now.

    I also regret getting it, but that's a different matter. Seems the people who appreciate grind & craft mechanics like it, but it's a turd to everyone else. Bit galling because their initial footage showed super exciting cinematic action (i.e appealing to the latter crowd,) and not hours of firing a lasers at rocks and shuffling inventory slots.

  • Pokémon Go player claims to have first ever legendary

  • LazyDan 02/08/2016

    @DanForinton The two leading theories are that it's either a move to trick radar apps which has backfired, or a botched implementation of Ditto.

    As an engineer, I would suggest: just a bug. Discrepancy between shown pokemon on map vs caught pokemon suggests they're really struggling with the map view right now, especially given recent google maps API changes and them temp removing the in game tracking.

  • LazyDan 02/08/2016

    A recent server change introduced a glitch: after catching a Pokémon, the one you caught is sometimes randomly swapped out for a completely different one. I don't think it's been fully figured out yet, but at least Articuno as well as a range of other less exciting swap-outs like Arcanine have been chanced upon this way.

  • Pokémon Go players erupt in anger after fan tools forced offline

  • LazyDan 01/08/2016

    I was hosting a modified alert chat bot myself, which is now dead because they've blocked API access from cloud hosting providers.

    Anyone who didn't think they'd kill these off was deluded - it was cheating, pure and simple.

    On the flipside, I have absolutely zero respect for Niantic:

    - Their head was quoted in an interview as saying he was disappointed people were pulling through the app data and figuring out their API.

    What an idiot. Did he honestly expect people wouldn't? Niantic are made up chiefly of ex-Google Maps and Google Earth people - I would've expected them to be at the forefront in knowing how to build and run a web service and application. "What about when people figure the API out" should've been one of the first edge cases they had to consider. Two changes on their side would've made scanners impractical: only reveal what pokemon is on the spawn point when you're in range of it (like in the game,) make spawn points randomly located, rather than fixed.

    - Their servers go down.

    Again, they are Google staff. I imagine them using Amazon Web Services would've been a faux-pas, but Google Compute Engine is also capable of auto-scaling servers, and rolling your own isn't hard with the right experise in house (again, they should have it.) Auto scaling is what keeps Netflix running, keeping the minimal server interactions from Pokemon Go alive is trivial in comparison.

    They're a small ex-Google team with $20 million of funding behind them, but they've produced an app that would be written off as a shitty china-made knock off had it not come with Nintendo and Google's name attached. The game shouldn't be as broken as it is or designed as poorly as it is. Them allowing for scanners in the first place through sloppy design then prioritising killing the scanners over the bot players, screaming bugs and poor design is the bitter pill to take, and it's really put me off the game.

  • Celebs named for Dara O Briain's Go 8 Bit TV video game show

  • LazyDan 28/07/2016

    I'm still skeptical that it won't be a sterile festival of BBC's post-Frankie Boyle/Brand+Ross safe comedy, featuring low effort jokes ("hur hur, do you reckon Mario actually DOES any plumbing?") and turning off actual gamers by constantly treating the audience like they've never heard of games before ("Street Fighter is a long running series known as a 'beat em up' where...")

    The obvious response to that last point is "how else is it supposed to appeal to non-gamers and get more people involved!"

    a) When gaming's a firmly established billion dollar industry, is getting your Nan interested in Metal Gear Solid really the noble goal every gaming TV show has to continually aim for?

    b) Match of the Day and Top Gear don't explain the basics of football every episode, or who Ferrari are. Top Gear quite famously gets on well with people who aren't interested in cars (or at least, it did before Jeremy got slap happy)

    I'm being pre-emptively sour and could be completely wrong in that this could finally be the gaming TV show to hit the right note... But this combination of names and the BBC doesn't give me much hope.

  • There's a new Micro Machines!

  • LazyDan 14/07/2016

    Microtransactions will sap the soul out of any game, but Toybox Turbos was pretty soulless to begin with. Not a bad game taken on its own merits, but nowhere near as detail packed and varied as the old Megadrive games.

    Cartoon racers today (including this) have a horrible habit of going for the 'collect stars to continue' route, rather than the focusing on grand prix style competitions. Completely removes that animosity you'd feel towards your nearest AI rival, and makes it feel like you're not racing at all when you're just replaying the same level over and over to qualify for a 3 star rating/collect coins/whatever other grindy mechanic.

  • Pokémon Go officially released in the UK

  • LazyDan 14/07/2016

    TIPS!

    Catch 'em all. Literally them all. Even those Pidgeys and Rattatas are useful for the exp you get for evolving them after claiming enough candies. And exp means levels, and levelling up is the best way to catch stronger and better Pokémon. Save star dust for your favourites or for when you need to edge out a gym leader.

    Nothing will happen while the 'loading' Pokéball on the top left of the screen is showing. It is known as Pokéball of Doom. If it gets stuck spinning forever, restart the app.

    Keep hold of Lucky Eggs, save using them until you have a bunch of eggs hatching at the same time and save evolving any Pokémon you don't need to evolve until you have a Lucky Egg active. Evolving and hatching each give you nice exp bonuses, which are doubled with a Lucky Egg. Timing your incubations and evolutions around this can have you jump multiple levels at once.

    Pokéstops and Gyms are at specific points on the map, and so are Pokémon spawn points. So for instance, if a Pokémon ever appears over a particular bin in your park, then in future that bin will *always* be a spawn point. If you have a regular route (dog walking, commute, etc.) learn where specifically the invisible spawn points are, so you can hit them efficiently without being glued to the app.

    Sometimes spawn points are empty, they most frequently will have a common Pokémon for your area, and naturally will occasionally have a rare Pokémon for your area. The spawns rotate roughly once an hour, but no one's quite figured that out yet.

    If you switch out of the app without closing it, go into another app for a bit, then switch back to Pokémon, in a lot of phones your GPS will be screwy for a few moments and your avatar will end up walking in a wide circle around your current spot. Useful for snagging a Pokéstop or spawn point just outside of your desk/house's current location.

    You don't need to tap the bubbles to claim the items from a Pokéstop, just quit back out once they appear - useful for quickly snagging Pokéstops when you're a passenger in a car/train.

    Once you're in battle with a Pokémon, you're free to move to the other end of the Earth - the battle won't end with you going out of range, but can only end with you catching it or it running away. So if you're doing the GPS trick or in a fast moving vehicle, if you manage to just get in range of a spawn point, tap the Pokémon as fast as possible to get in battle with it.

    When you level up, you'll get items. You'll get these items even if you're at your storage limit, and it'll take you over. Be aware of that when you're near your limit and grabbing Pokéstops.

    CP level isn't the be-all-and-end-all - you can take a Pokémon several hundred levels above your own if your moves are super effective and theirs are not effective. The game uses Pokémon X & Y's type chart, but only has Red/Blue/Yellow (generation 1) Pokémon in it.

    Mew, Mewtwo, Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres can't be found, and there are suggestions there'll be special events held at specific locations to catch them (similar to Ingres' Anomaly events.) In addition, Ditto also can't be caught in game at the moment.

    Serebii.net has a complete list of which Poké hatch from which eggs: http://www.serebii.net/pokemongo/eggs.shtml

    While Team Mystic is a fine choice, Team Instinct and especially Team Valor are for scrubs and should stay out of my territory.

  • Watch: 6 unexpected side effects of Pokémon Go

  • LazyDan 11/07/2016

    Pokemon Go is both amazing and a typical mobile turd.

    The virtual-geocaching aspect of hunting around for Pokemon works really well. Trying to get the strongest version possible of your favourites by finding and catching multiples of them sounds wank, but turns out to be the charm.

    The Pokestops are genius: keeping you stocked up, tying the real world with the Pokemon one and also making you suddenly aware of all the cool minor sights in your area you never noticed before. Although one of my local Pokestops is a strip club, so there's that too.

    Finally, the possibility of being the Gym leader of a local landmark is super super alluring - definitely gives you the drive to find those 100 Magikarp you'll need to make a Gyarados.

    The only flaws are the many bugs, needing the app open and active in order to detect Pokemon and have egg-hatching steps count, and the action aspects. Throwing Pokeballs is clumsy and irritating, and the combat (limited to Gyms only) is just a confusing tap-fest. It feels like Pokemon, but it doesn't feel like Nintendo - for good and for bad.

    It's not even out yet and someone dropped a Lure round the back of The Oracle in Reading - a group of about 10 of us quickly appeared and were chatting away to each other, half embarassed, half impressed.

    When they improve some of the bugs and flaws, this very simple, relatively shallow game could be getting mentioned in game of the year articles. Imagine it at EGX this year.

    I love how the internet keeps giving us industries and every time it's a wild west of shady practices you wouldn't get away with in a similar setup offline. Internet advertising has skated through because it was traditional businesses doing the advertising.

    How do you effectively regulate a US-based video service with global reach (Youtube) to fit every country's rules, preventing people who have become celebrities on that service (these guys) from using manipulative techniques to advertise their online gambling business (their site)?

  • Nostalrius team meets Blizzard and says company wants legacy WOW servers

  • LazyDan 09/06/2016

    Since WoW came out Blizzard has slowly polished away any in game system which allowed for emergent gameplay. Luring boss monsters or virulent plagues to cities? Acknowledged as fun, cut out. Having to interact with people in order to progress? Slowly but surely cut out, so progression is an exercise in button pressing.

    The thing is, people asked for it all at every step. Yeah bringing that boss to Stormwind was fun, but if it happened every hour of every day, people would get annoyed. Dungeon finder was a great relief when it turned up, and a much requested feature.

    They've spent all of WoW's life answering to what people want, and they're doing it again now that 'want' has come full circle. I wish they'd focus on allowing more emergent gameplay, which means having less control of each player's experience, but in that there's a balance they could find. I might initially want to just get into the city to hand my quests in, but the big monster lured into the city stopping me is actually quite exciting - as long as it doesn't happen every day. I think that's the essence of why people are really into vanilla servers, because there was more potential for shenanigans back then.

  • Metroid Prime: Federation Force to roll up in September

  • LazyDan 20/04/2016

    "The game's multiplayer mode is another departure from the franchise's norm: it is a Rocket League-esque sports mini-game named Blast Ball."

    Wrong, wrong wrong.

    The game has 4-player co-op of the main campaign, which take the form of Left4Dead-esque romps through missions with vague or specific objectives (e.g. 'investigate the strange signals coming from the power plant on this abandoned planet.') Blast Ball is just a mode, and almost certainly not the main one.

    The unveiling at last year's E3 was cack-handed and made Blast Ball the main focus, but more information has been shown since then which makes it look much more fun. You'd only know that if you'd have, you know, looked. It is a shame it's being released so late and likely to take more time from this E3, but I guess this article shows why they have to use their E3 platform to make the increasingly passive gaming press aware there's more to it now.

    Here's a good video of the campaign co-op being played:

  • LazyDan 31/03/2016

    @MrTomFTW "And don't even think about victim blaming in these comments please. I'll just delete the posts. Go take it to a blog or Twitter or something."

    That's a bit oversensitive. She was victim of a horrible harassment campaign for whatever reason that crowd deigned her guilty for, but she put strong views on record while acting as a representative for Nintendo, nevermind the moonlighting.

    If an EG member of staff tweeted seriously about having strong anti-immigration views on their linked-from-the-site Twitter account it'd make EG quite rightly nervous. People like to act indignant like it's some freedom of speech issue, but the fact is it's modern common sense - while you represent a company, don't publicly and on record (i.e Twitter) express views your company wouldn't express.

    The mistake on her part is an age and experience thing, not a gender thing. The harassment is awful, but unrelated to her decisions and Nintendo's subsequent decision. To connect the two and imply Nintendo are at fault for not riding to her rescue in a personal matter and firing her during it for something else is super weak.

    BBC and Channel 4 10 years ago: "There's no market for gaming on TV"

    Too little, too late. In 2007 it really used to bother me that there were no gaming related programmes on TV, but time and technology caught up with us super quickly. Today, I don't even have a freeview box plugged in, I get all my viewing needs online - and only a tiny amount of that is from the national TV catchup services (such as the BBC-commissioned, though online only and excellent Videogaiden.)
