  • Don't care about VR? Neither did I

  • Makkuro 08/05/2016

    VR is dependent on both screens. Otherwise... what is the point?
    It isn't really more dependent on two screens than reality is dependent on two eyes. If you remove one screen, then you lose stereoscopy, but every other aspect of it still works, most importantly the head tracking.

    As for UI elements, no, they can't be stretched across both screens. To a person with binocular vision, that would make it look like it's overlapping itself. If you have a 3D TV, try activating 3D mode with 2D content and you'll see an approximation of the effect.

    @simpleexplodingmaybe I remember seeing a Halo live action thing which I quite enjoyed. I believe it was a tie-in to Halo 4, but it thankfully didn't include any of the awful new aliens from that game. Reply 0

    @Mr_Writer85 Yeah, I can tell how little you care by your multi-paragraph post. Sounds like you're really only interested in publicity material. Good news: that's all available on publishers' websites. Reply +1
  • Capcom patches out Chun-Li's ridiculous boob physics

  • Makkuro 29/03/2016

    @RussellP I really have no idea if it is or not. Regardless, whether or not it will be released in territory X or on platform Y is probably going to be a business decision. Reply 0
  • Makkuro 29/03/2016

    @RussellP Didn't they release it in Japan? I admit I don't exactly keep up with the series. Anyway, a lot of games get cancelled even when they're completed, because the costs in publishing a game don't end with development. Sometimes you just have to stop throwing good money after bad.

    And you're welcome. :)

    @RussellP I mean, presumably they thought it wouldn't turn a profit, or enough of a profit to bother with it. They're in the business of making money, not pleasing some imaginary PC cabal. Reply +1
  • Blizzard to remove Overwatch pose accused of reducing Tracer to “another bland female sex symbol”

    Incidentally, does anyone know how to cancel an account on the SE store?

  • Zelda: Twilight Princess HD has a new dungeon

  • Makkuro 15/01/2016

    - Relatively free of foulmouthed morons because it doesn't have voice chat, doesn't have party chat, doesn't have the ability to really find friends unless you already know who you're looking for. It's a shell of what PSN and XBL offer.
    I consider that a point in Nintendo's favor. Being able to hear some nasal teenage boy express his opinions on homosexuality is not conductive to an enjoyable session. Admittedly I've muted voice chat when able ever since hearing some kid start singing "my god this house is freaking sweet" in a game of Halo 2 back on the original Xbox. Conditions may have improved since then.

    I see now the error of my ways. I tried to bring facts and reason to a personality contest. Ah well.:rolleyes:
    Well, try being a bit more smug, I'm sure people will see that your opinions are actually just objective facts.

  • Makkuro 14/01/2016

    @Saul_Iscariot That's part of it, yes. I don't like unnecessary clutter. The rest of it is plain old frugality. And no, I don't have a PS4 or Xbone either, as I do almost all my gaming on PC these days, although I'll probably pick up the former sooner or later for Bloodborne alone.

    God is fine with me. He may be omnipresent, but unlike Amiibo he's immaterial, so he doesn't infringe upon my theology and geometry.

  • Makkuro 14/01/2016

    So it's ok to rip off kids, but not adults?
    I think it's more that few commenters on Eurogamer actually care about Skylanders or Lego Dimensions, whereas many care quite a lot about Zelda. Anyway, it's the parents that are getting fleeced, not the kids. They're just just the fulcrum between the publisher and daddy's wallet.

    A lot of complaints here.
    What would people like Amiibo's to be used for in games? (serious question).
    Speaking for myself, nothing at all. They are ugly, embarrassing lumps of plastic that are worse than worthless to me. They're one of the main reasons I have so far decided against getting a Wii U. Games themselves already take up too much room in my apartment, the last thing I need is for DLC to add to the burden.

  • So, Mr Kojima, do we feel "ashamed" over Quiet?

  • Makkuro 08/09/2015

    Anyways, I promised myself I would never get involved with you and your trolling again. I moved on to other gaming websites these days and maybe read Eurogamer once or twice a week. After the behaviour of the former editor and his little twitter clique including yourself, I couldn't bring myself to keep supporting Eurogamer via clicks.
    Yeah, well, making promises is easy. The hard part is keeping them. Good luck!

    @TheDarkSide I can't tell you why you react as you do. Only you can, but it requires self-reflection, so I guess we're up the creek on that one. Reply +2
  • Makkuro 05/09/2015

    Trust me on this kiddo. When it comes to self reflection, I wrote the book. Like you said, you don't know me.
    Still haven't got the balls to outright call me a racist, eh?
    Right, and so now you're done and can spend the rest of your life in self-righteous complacency. Good job! :lol:

    I don't know whether you hold any racist views, consciously or subconsciously. You do seem to be rather touchy about the subject, though. You should probably reflect on why that is.
    Reply +2
  • Makkuro 05/09/2015

    So are you saying there's something to it, therefore accusing me of racism?
    I'm saying that's how I'd react. You may have a much thinner skin, I don't know you. However...

    I don't need to convince myself of anything, and I've done all the self-reflection I'll ever need.
    No, you haven't, and the fact that you think you have certainly doesn't point in your favour.

  • Makkuro 05/09/2015

    I commented on an insinuation made towards me. There seems to be an attitude that it's perfectly acceptable to accuse someone of being something they're not. How else are you supposed to defend yourself against that? If I accused you of racism, how would you feel?
    If I was accused of racism baselessly, I'd feel nothing. If I was accused of racism, and I thought there might be something to it, I'd probably feel wounded, get defensive and make some lame self-justification. Hopefully, I'd have the strength to look at myself critically, admit my faults and try to better myself.

    But I sure as hell wouldn't bring up my friends' skin colour (or my cousin's sexuality), because that's just lame.

    The very sex act itself involves objectifying women. Women are the object that is acted upon. It's just life.

    @TheDarkSide I'm not. I'm just baffled that you think it's relevant (or appropriate) to bring up your mate's skin colour in an online argument. Reply +3
  • Makkuro 05/09/2015

    Incidentally, one of my favourite people on this site is @frazzl. See if you can guess the colour of his skin.
    Are you really using the "some of my best friends are black" argument? That's like one step up from "I'm not racist but".
    Reply +3
  • Makkuro 05/09/2015

    Probably because it's not relevant or comparable to what's being discussed here.

    Anyway, I'm glad this opinion piece has generated so much interest, even though some of it is a little on the daft side. It shows that there is an audience for this kind of content, so I expect we'll be seeing more of it in the future. :)

    To be perfectly honest I thought it was a shit comment to make. But I thought fuck it, there are worse things to say. I'm sometimes thought of as an outcast for my weird behavior. But they haven't shaken my hand and spoken to me as a gentleman. If they did, I think they would be pleasantly surprised.
    Frankly, given your earlier comment, I'd be loath to shake your hand without disposable gloves on.

  • Can last-gen consoles handle Metal Gear Solid 5?

  • Makkuro 30/08/2015

    Kojima has done incredibly well with the limitations imposed and has created what looks to be a unique experience but I can't help wonder what he'd have made unshackled from the last gen systems.
    Judging by MGS1 vs MGS2, and MGS3 vs MGS4, Kojima is at his best when he doesn't get to play with the full power of new hardware. I think he'd benefit a lot from a stricter editor, but in the absence of that, hardware limitations seem to help.

    That is why our country is in the shape it is now, because we fear making light of anything that might be thought of as controversial.
    Yes, thanks for that insightful analysis of the causes of America's social, economic and political problems. Judging solely by this statement, because I won't subject myself to the video, I'm entirely certain that everyone involved with this channel is an unmitigated wanker. While I don't care how a streamer chooses to degrade himself to entertain his mouth-breathing audience (as long as it doesn't inconvenience real people), I'm not above feeling a pang of schadenfreude over this one's misfortune.

  • 18 minutes of No Man's Sky footage shows off what you actually do

  • Makkuro 07/07/2015

    I really hate that land-to-space transition. Seems like you can only ascend a few dozen meters before the screen fogs over and dumps you into outer space.

    Same thing when you land for that matter. It's clear skies until you get too close, then the view fades out, the low-detail planet is switched for the actual play area, and it fades in, again a few dozen meters above ground.

    I hope I'm wrong, and you'll be able to fly over tall mountains and deep valleys. As it is, though, the game seems disappointingly small scale beneath all the supposed vastness.

    @GooseUK I think you need to work on your reading comprehension. I wasn't planning to buy the game, and it's not exactly causing me to lose sleep. I am, however, expressing my opinions on the pricing of a product. Commenting, if you will. And in an article discussing that very subject, can you imagine! Reply 0
  • Makkuro 03/04/2015

    Well, as I wrote earlier, if you think remixing enemy placements, changing item locations, modifying AI, adding new enemies and expanding the multiplayer capabilities across a 100+ hr game is a trivial -and valueless- change, you have zero respect and understanding of game design and development.
    I'll admit I have very little respect for the development that went into this version, and not too much for the design of Dark Souls 2 to begin with.

    i.e. an over-entitled clown who I have zero compunction about expressing my disdain to, and in no uncertain terms.
    My heart breaks.

    What's more 12 is a pittance for what amounts to a very substantial amount of new gameplay. That you blanch at the prospect of paying the cost of a take-away for dozens of hours of new content, just shows me how little you value the playing experience.
    I'd gladly pay it for new content (if it looks interesting). Not so much for a slight variation on old content. If I ever decide to play Dark Souls 2 again, and the remix is dirt cheap, I might choose that version instead of the original.

    Tell me why I or anyone else should give a damn about you being "denied" additional content you deem overpriced at 12?
    Nah, instead I'll tell you to look up how quotation marks work.

  • Makkuro 02/04/2015

    If its not worth it to you, don't buy it. Just don't act all butthurt because you're "missing out".
    I wasn't. I don't think I'm "missing out", because there's hardly anything to miss out on. If there was actual new content, or a significant graphical update, that would be different. As it is, they're basically charging 12 for remixed enemy and item placements. No thanks. The rest is the kind of stuff that most publishers would have included in a free patch.
    Reply +2
  • Makkuro 02/04/2015

    And once again I have to point out the very obvious changes in item/enemy placement and the new 6 multi-player capacity.

    Hardly minor changes, and certainly enough to make inter-operation with the original builds an impossibility.
    You forgot to mention the improved AI, but that still adds up to a very minor update. Certainly not worth a two-figure sum. I'll wait until it's at least 75% off.
