  • Amazon lists Rise of the Tomb Raider for PS3, Xbox 360

  • Nikanoru 16/06/2014

    @TarickStonefire
    Considering that besides TRA, every game in the series since the first one has been a bloody human massacre, you can be forgiven for the assumption, lol.

    Man, it was a pretty great remake...

    @TarickStonefire
    You remember that wrong actually. TR Anniversary had fewer people to shoot than the original. TR1 had no regular human enemies, but a number of human bosses (5 IIRC).

    TRA has no human enemies and even gets rid of those human bosses. One of these characters isn't even in the remake. Two others are in there, but Lara never defeats them directly. The other two are made into cutscenes (with a couple quicktime moments). TRA makes a big deal about Lara killing a human for the first time.

    It's not enough to drag the Wii U into the current console race, but that doesn't really matter.
    Oh bullshit. It's still ahead of the Xbox One in sales, and whether or not the latter is going to even catch up, is certainly up for debate. The popular narrative of Wii U being a flop is on extremely shaky grounds right now, and game-wise it hasn't been true for a long, long time.

  • Star Fox Wii U and two "experimental" Miyamoto projects detailed

  • Nikanoru 10/06/2014

    @ghostgate2001
    Let's be totally honest, if they really did release a straight-up Starfox game nowadays they'd get absolutely lynched by any number of retards who will take every opportunity to bash Nintendo about "rehashing" or not trying new things, which is, btw, just about the most ridiculous willfully ignorant bullshit you can say, especially considering the games industry as a whole nowadays.

  • Nikanoru 10/06/2014

    Well, I'm probably the biggest Nintendo supporter in this thread and... yeah this game doesn't look great. Technically it looks fine, just design-wise... ech. Especially compared to all the stuff Nintendo just showed.

    Who knows it may turn out great and the level editor thing sounds interesting, but still.

  • Nintendo unveils Wii U GameCube controller adapter

  • Nikanoru 30/05/2014

    @DizzyCriminal If they did a classic controller shaped like a Cube pad, haters would lynch them for not allowing people to reuse their old Cube pads.

    I'm thinking (hoping) they do a re-release of the actual original CG compatible pad to go with this, with that logo on it. It looks pretty nice.

    UPDATE: Out now for 10.99 with upgraded visuals.
    Oh for christ's sake, there are no upgraded visuals. Wonder why they didn't show the game footage fullscreen in that trailer, instead opting for a small window in the middle? Exactly, it's the same fucking graphics. They're meant to be seen on a DS screen.

  • The familiar fear of The Evil Within

  • Nikanoru 27/05/2014

    Backtracking through rooms looking for doors I'd missed, or running away and quick-turning to pop off headshots on dim-witted monsters; these are ideas that are more than a little threadbare in 2014.
    No no no no NO don't do this, don't start criticizing the fact that a game finally allows the player to find out stuff for themselves again, instead of having all the exploration streamlined out by means of automatic waypoints and keys&doors that present themselves in a neat fucking order so the player can just press forward on the control stick and mindlessly let game progress play out all by itself, taking control only to perform combat.

    Actually from experience, the 3D isn't a huge part of it. It helps, sure, but you only really notice it when up close to something. I'd say most of the immersive effect comes from being enveloped in the image, being able to see above and below and behind you. So you shouldn't need 3D vision to enjoy it. I think I even remember someone who couldn't see 3D saying what a powerful effect it was to him.

    All that said, I think VR needs more time to evolve, as I wasn't as impressed by it as I thought I would be. But yeah.

    @minleg Looks like somebody got a little mad! Poor little gamer you.

    Button press, "much better"? LOL. Frankly after Zelda SS and 360 degrees of swing options as well as stabbing and other moves, just with natural hand motions, I'm sad to see a regression back to last-century game mechanics of "watching my guy automatically swing his sword after a button press".

    But hey, keep living in the past, guy.

    I don't know how to put it any clearer. Just because someone can't play tennis doesn't make it a bad sport, it just means the person is bad at it. His comments about the controls "flying off somewhere" sounds exactly like what I've seen people with no motor control do. It's almost infuriating, like watching someone fail hard at sports because the ball "flies all over the place" and then getting mad at the ball.

    It is in no way like a FOV setting, which I still find an incredibly random analogy.

    YOU stop talking such utter tripe. D-pads are used for pretty much any 2D game, any puzzle game, any menu-based RPG. If their use was so rare, it wouldn't be so unthinkable to create a gamepad without one, like it is now. People like you are the cause of lack of growth in the industry, you hardcore gamerzzz who dismiss anything new before even giving it a chance to evolve to its full potential.

    If it were up to you we would still be using analogue turning knobs instead of analogue sticks because the latter don't give you an immediate competitive advantage in Breakout and Pong.

    Look, I'm not into Kinect at all, but this is not about forcing it down anyone's throat. This is about the fact that it could never succeed if it wasn't in the hands of every Xbox owner, because no publisher is going to throw big money at making a game for something only a minor subset of a console's users have access to. To truly evolve games to make use of a control method, it has to be a standard.

    Now that it's optional, any chance for that happening are pretty much out the window. It's dead.

    Nonsense. Motion control is an evolution of analogue just as analogue was an evolution of digital. Gamers are just crybabies and developers are lazy.

    And sure motion control is not suited for every game genre, but guess what? Neither is analogue stick control! Do you know why every single game controller in existence still has a d-pad?

    Exactly.

    @Avaloner
    Every single thing you just said flies in the face of reality, such as the fact Nintendo games have the quality that they do due to Nintendo being able to create them on their own terms, with their own rules, on their own hardware. You even answered your own question: 4 systems, 4 generations, and they've cruised through with a profit each and every time. Who cares if it's not what you want from them?

    If you people want Nintendo games so much that you apparently have to cry about them going third party on every vaguely related comment thread, then just buy the damn systems because they're absolutely full of their games.

    If you don't want their games enough to buy the system, then why the hell do you people spout this nonsense everywhere? Oh that's right. Why don't you hurry on back under your bridge.
