  • Writing Lara Croft

  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 17/01/2017

    It was mentioned a fair bit that she couldn't respond to early criticism because she hadn't been announced as writer yet. Why wasn't she? As far as I can see bar a tiny amount of exceptions most games do not sell on who the writer is so there appears to be no benefit for Squenix to have kept her role secret at the start.

    And like others I miss the idea of a Tomb Raider with big structures to explore and no more than a couple of human antagonists throughout the game. (Yeah, pretty much the first game only then it went all shooting at people in modern settings like Venice...)

  • Atlus doesn't know whether the new Shin Megami Tensei for Nintendo Switch will head west

  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 14/01/2017

    I'd like the 3DS part of the SMT 25th to be a decent remake of the first 2 games (if included would be great but much less likely) as an 'Origins' type oack and getting us an official English release of 2 finally. I would imagine they could slot pretty neatly into the Soul Hackers engine too. I would be happy to see a new title too but I think it is less likely that we would get 2 new mainline SMT games the same year... Reply +1

    @Frosty840 I bought a few Ryuu ga gotoku (Yakiza) games in Korea that were Japanese only. They came with free books attached translating the story. Not an ideal method but interesting to see.

    As for SMT Switch it hasn't even formally been given a title so of course it isn't confirmed for the west yet. We haven't missed any SMT or subseries game for many years and even got TMS which was never going to sell well. Means I can wait for Switch to hit more sensible prices before buying my new SMT machine :)

  • Yakuza 0 is a great way to get into Sega's outstanding series

  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 12/01/2017

    @theincredibleaf I didn't play a lot of Sleeping Dogs but I would say the focus is very different. Sleeping Dogs covers a large part of HK? This is set in the redight/entertainment districts of 2 cities in Japan. As people have said story is at the forefront and ylu can just skip most of the optional content if you wish but if you want you can try and do all the sidequests (I usually make this a goal in a Yakuza playthrough), try to master whichever of many minigames take your fancy, master the colliseum (fighting tournament that I have never gone all the way through in previous games) wooing hostesses etc. I am not sure if Majima's side has any running of a club like you had in 2 and 4 or not but there is a lot of optional content in these games even if the square footage of the city areas aren't that big. If you want the Japanese gangster film atmosphere with a mix of drama and silliness that entails in a dark setting with characters who, although sometimes cliched, work well within the scenarios.
    You don't get freeform driving in these games like in SD really although 5 introduced driving elements (taxi driving and street racing) so there may be a minigame or two here too.

    Not sure if that helps you much but I tried :)

    @Hellotherenow It is rare but there are the odd games where PEGI rate more leniently than the ESRB (even if it is usually the other way around) sych as the EDF games (which are PEGI 12s but ESRB Ms in recent years (not sure why though)). I don't see us getting a more censored version than the US these days but coyld be wrong. You also need to rememeber that the US has no rating between Teen and Mature so if you slip off teen you are in M territory. Japan rates things its own way so not comparing there. Is it confirmed to be a PEGI 12? I expected a 16.

    As for Yakuza 0, looking forward to gettig this in English for my PS4 (puts preannouncement Japanese PS3 copy back on the shelf...)

  • How Amstrad Action changed my life

  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 07/01/2017

    Desperately poor so bought second-hand, I can relate there. The "didn't even get a dishwasher until 1991" bit spoils that as most poor families never got a dishwasher or even had a space for one. Maybe the north/south divide talking here but it seemed an odd choice of justification.

    I liked the article overall though and remember the Balrog from Your Sinclair (I started with a second hand Vic20 then moved onto a second hand Spectrum 48K rubber keys...). I liked Crash and YS but Sinclair User was a bit crap.

    I still think (also woth music licensing for TV stuff) that the licensors need to force better deals where although they cannot release new games or ports after expiartion they can keep anything released during license on shelves 'perpetually' (with TV shows it should be a case of one a song is licensed for a scene it is part of that scene regardless of territory etc as long as theu don't change it) (I suppose the Japanese voice actor guilds is another one that needs the licensors to band together and force change)...

  • Dragon Quest 11 gets new gameplay, continues to look lovely

  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 19/12/2016

    @BlueThunderBlade I imagine that releasing all the recent spinoffs and the 3DS remakes are leading to an official announcement of this one (and an Edge interview with an Enix higher-up implies this too)

    Shame we missed out on X but being online focussed was the problem there as not popular enough for a subscription and possibly needs more serverside work than the likes of Monster Hunter to be able to be done for free. I don't even know how much single player content X has but there is a rough fan translation for PC for those that are curious (not got the game so bot checked it out personally but it is an unknown team of translators IIRC so...)

    I really enjoyed EA's first (the nonconsole one) Space Hulk on Amiga back in the day (didn't really play the 3DO etc remake to compare). Do any of the new batch of Space Hulk games seem lukely to appeal based on liking that game a long time ago? Reply +3

    @porkface Pretty much anything by Pqube or NISA seems to be missing off this lest. Decent stuff including Yomawari, Steins;Gate 0, Root Letter (although not played it yet so may not be great), Psycho Pass. Even some stuff that has been mentioned on EG like the infanous GalGun (had to look for that one when I noticed other games I cared about were missing even though it isn't a game I plan to get).

    Lot of Vita stuff is missing basically. (Some with PS4 ports too)

  • NieR: Automata now has a western release date

  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 03/12/2016

    @StarPlatinum World of Final Fantasy on PS4 is pretty much the only one I know of where day 1 retail copies and some preordered online (including mine annoyingly so back it went) weren't the Day 1 edition (I am guessing it had better launch sales than anticipated).

    Then of course you get stuff like Dragon Quest Heroes which I don't think ever got any non-day 1 editions released.

    My pet hate is how most steelbooks have worse art than the standard versions (the Tales of game in particular with decent enough regular art and crappy mascot faces on the steelbooks...) (The FFXV deluxe one does look nice though with the Amano art)

  • Telltale's third season of The Walking Dead finally has a release date

  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 22/11/2016

    @Hellotherenow better than they did with actual Game of Thrones, 5 of 6 eps on PS4 (1 on XBone I think) just to get it out at same time as digital... And I don't forsee any others getting a belated full release like Minecraft unless they get any season extensions like it did. I only grabbed Wolf Anong Us and Tales from Borderland physically on PS4 as latter was cheapish and I really liked the former. Sadly the current gen console Walking Deads are out of print and therefore very pricy for something I already have on PC. Reply +1

  • Telltale's Batman Episode 4 due next week

  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 18/11/2016

    @TheTingler he is talking about the physical release where they only included one episode and the rest being DLC rather than waiting for the whole season to be out andbreleasing a complete set on disc. They did this with MC Story Mode (rectified by the complete with bonus campaign edition) and Game of Thrones (at least 1 ep missing off the disc for all formats). It defeats the whole point of the physical release really. Reply 0

    The logistics excuse for not including both voicesets on disc seems a tad unbelievable with the JP voiceset obviously already finished and storage space available is pretty huge.

  • Suda51's visual novel The Silver Case is coming to PS4

  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 20/10/2016

    @HappyGator The game finally gets an English release and PC remaster after several failed attempts (such as the unreleased DS game). Also gets new console port. Seem to fit the category of 'news' to me. EG have hardly overreported the game as they haven't even reviewed it. This one interests me more than Grasshopper's modern game that is due out soon as it has more of a Killer 7 vibe to the story (despite completely different gameplay) Reply +2
  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 20/10/2016

    @n0signal It is a remake of a 17 year old PS1 game that is trying to retain authenticity while also updating itself for HD. I have only played it on a tablet but I think the look suits the game well enough (may be worse played on a fullsize monitor) using the newer elements (a lot of things from videos and music theough the UI can be set to classic but I have only tried the newer versions so far). Reply +1
  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 20/10/2016

    Hopefully this means the PC version has done well enough. It is a little archaic but it is nice and quirky and very Suda51. Haven't quite finished it yet on PC. Hopefully this means we may get the expansion/sequel ported and maybe a new port of Flower, Sun and Rain.

    Already ordered the PC physical for this but may doubledip.

  • Thank you, Rocksteady, for doing Batman justice

  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 19/10/2016

    @IronSoldier Not a fan of the middle game by Ocean, the Caped Crusader? One of the few at the time that tried to fit the comic style and was more puzzle based too and not just about fighting like The Movie. The Ritman/Drummond game was very good (if lessened by the release of Head over Heels which refined the concept so well) but Batman (as a license) was just window dressing really. Reply 0

    @TokyoHazard Seems far too common a tactic with episodic stuff now. Most new Telltale stuff are missing chapters (GOT, Minecraft, Batman).

  • Tales of Berseria finally has a western release date

  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 11/10/2016

    I definitely seem to be an outlier anongst Tales of fans and enjoyed Zestiria a fair bit (on PS4). I can't remember if I started with the Dejap ToP or the official Tales of Destiny (definitely played more of the latter) but I always had a soft spot for the series even when Europe wasn't getting the games. I have at least 1 version of each game (Japanese exclusive or otherwise) and have enjoyed most that I have played through (Tempest being the weakest, weak enough that in Japan it got relegated from being a mainline game to a spinoff). It is nice that we can expect to get them all now though, just a shame that as I said above Europe always gets screwed on the L.E (usually simple substititutions like a hardcover artbook becomes paperback or we get a black and white book instead of a colour one bu this is the first time I've seen a significant item completely removed from the package) Reply 0

    Hmm, losing the 'exclusive' novel for a strategy guide. Pretty much the only thing that made me consider getting this LE after skipping the last one (even though I haven't read the Symphonia one yet). Why can'tĄ we have content parity with the US in Namco LEs? Reply 0
  • Beyond Good & Evil 2 is almost definitely in development

  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 06/10/2016

    @rubthisway it was only derailed when people responded to that topic (there was no need for any followup by anyone (thay was the derailing bit) on that bit of her message, but as I said Sarkeesian and certain other names seem to be beyond criticism on here). At least she talked about the game too unlike the followups which focussed entirely on Sarkeesian. I am guilty of that too I suppose as I have barely mentioned BGaE.

    On the actual topic I have to shamefully admit to not having finished BGaE despite having bought and played it reasonably far on both Xbox and PS3. One I shall have to go back to as I got distracted by something else each time.

    @rubthisway A female user points out how she thinks this game has a good female main character, which is pretty much what Sarkeesian is known for. Hardly trolling is it? Too many people are overreactionary to any criticism of Sarkeesian (of course there are plenty of other people who threatened AS etc but he user everyone is complaining about here merely said she didn't think Sarkeesian's videos were very well researched or 'good'. Grow up people, the post didn't even look like it was trying to start an argument, but several people had to poince on her for the post.

    People should be allowed to dislike the work of these people in a reasonable fashion without being accused of Gamergating... And Armoured Bear has been on here long enough to know better.

  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 05/10/2016

    @Armoured_Bear And as usual, noone could possibly just dislike Sarkeesian's work without an ulterior motive and links to the worst side of the internet. Isolte's comments seemed like a reasonable opinion with none of the baiting or trolling you and others are accusing her of. Your knee-jerk reaction posts are the only parts on here that look like actual trolling. Good old modern internet. If people actually allowed opinions as not taking sides we would get a lot less of these situations. Pick on the people who 'want her to die' etc (all the threats of violence and personal attacks as an example) all you want but not the people who just happen to disagree with you and genuinely don't like her videos. I see far too much of this around and Eurogamer has become a bit of a hotbed for it too, everything about actual issues being boiled down to a binary black or white mentality leads us nowhere.

  • PlayStation Vita isn't dead, in Japan anyway

  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 13/09/2016

    @SpaceMonkey77 For a dead system it still gets a much larger chunk of obscure Japanese stuff translated, largely due to the lower print run requirement and high purchase rate amongst buyers I imagine. I probably have more pending preorders on Vita than any other system at the moment (all English translations of Japanese stuff) Reply +14
  • Dead Rising 4 is a good zombie game, but maybe not a good Dead Rising

  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 26/08/2016

    Follow Fire Emblem's recent example and make the timer-free mode a "Casual Mode" and therefore a choice. Balance for the "Classic" mode and it makes it easier for the players who just want to sail through with a 100% without stresses. I still think not having to manage and choose your priority targets (to aid) would take a lot of the point of the game away though. Reply +2
  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 26/08/2016

    Admittedly I only played 2 properly but I had no problems with the time limits that seem to put people off. Never did a restart to keep XP either and that was getting the S ending (albeit without having saved every victim, but it wasn't usually the time that finished them off). I plan to play 3 when PC is fully setup and will possibly wait and see how the remake of 1 is before I go back to the 360 original. Reply +2
  • Here's brand new footage of Torment: Tides of Numenera - running on Xbox One no less

  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 23/08/2016

    I was surprised by how well Wasteland 2 worked on console (I backed PC original but bought it on PS4 too later for a physical copy). It is a tad clunky but perfectly playable and as the dev here explains it is obvious that they worked to make the PC controls fit on the console. I would imagine that this will use a similar system, and again I am a backer, and I might even consider a console version later on if it is a good port. I grabbed Divinity on PS4 too but not played it on either PC or console yet so cannot comment on that one. Reply -1
  • Warning: The Witcher 3 GOTY Edition won't let you carry over save data

  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 16/08/2016

    I am sure Bloodborne GOTY on disc recognised old saves so it is doable. Personally I think the console manufacturers have a stupid way of doing things tying saves to a product code only. You should be able to switch between digital or physical etc without the use of PSPlus. I could understand separating by region (in case of incompatibility risks) but they really need to do things in a more sensible fashion. Then again this is the Sony that took over 2 years to add any form of folder support to their flagship machine...

    It is nice that it means the DLC will be on disc though, I may have to 'upgrade' as I haven't saved too far in.

    @spamdangled Was it priced lower? I thought it got a midrange pricepoint at the time but as I got it on PC it is hard to remember so you're probably right. Game length should be similar to DR2 though. I might get this compilation of it comes out physically on consoles, otherwise just grab DR1 on PC as I have the other 2 there (I have DR1 on 360 but not really played it much as 360 is rarely plugged in) Reply 0
  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 09/08/2016

    @acuratebob are you getting mixed up with Case Zero or Case West? OTR should be similar length to DR2 as it is the alternate take with Frank instead of Chuck as the main character. (I have OTR but haven't played it yet)

  • In Theory: Could NX bring Wii and GameCube games to Virtual Console?

  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 31/07/2016

    If they have a dock could they not just stick an optical drive and Wiiu chipset in there for at least 'at home' backwards compatability? Especially if the new controller/handheld can be read as a Wiiu Gamepad (wiiu streaming tech in both directions?) You would lose mobile BC for the latest hardware but it could feasibly work (depending on the cost of the Wiiu chipset) and allow for streamed game where available on Wiiu. Won't affect me personally as I don't get rid of my old hardware so will have the original machines anyway. Reply +1
  • Telltale's Batman launches August for download, September on disc

  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 15/07/2016

    As others have said releasing the physical copy with only half the episodes is stupid. Minecraft: Story Mode was bad but you could see they were trying to get in on the early release hype. Game of Thrones was ridiculous as a month delay would have got the full package (5 of 6 on ps4 and 1 of 6 on xbone IIRC)

    I actually bought the Borderlands PS4 release as it was complete (and the demo had been a lot better than I expected from a franchise I don't care about) and an okay release price. GoT is a goong to be a Steam or GOG sale game (I assume GOG despite its DRM free status still talks to the server for stats?)
