  • Atlus eases up on Persona 5 streaming

  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 27/04/2017

    Oddly the only part that teally bothered me was the no screenshots on trophypop. I suppose I could disable the 'not allowed' messages if you can but it is pretty intrusive. I don't care about streaming video but I can't see too much harm in allowing screenshots compared to video streams (I really don't understand the current trend of Let's Plays etc, seems so pointless to me) Reply +1
  • PlayStation Plus free games for May detailed

    Well, for once I have all 3 of the big PS4 games (Abzu and Alienation and TotB). Got retail copies of them all so at least I will gain convenience for the 2 we get in Europe, might get around to playing them. I really should have waited to buy TotB as I got it on release expecting to play it soon but have seen it for less than a fiver new on disc since... Wonder if the Vita crossplay games are any good...

    @EG If you have a line to BadLands any chance you can find out if the UK is getting wither of the physical preorder bonuses (an artbook or a comic) that are listed on their website. They have links to Game and Amazon in the UK but neither site mention the bonuses? I tried asking them on Facebook but jo reoes (and I don't use Twitter) Reply +2

    Like others I prefer games to being out drinking etc (frequently) but I have little interest in multiplayer and none in MMOs so can happily have weeks without etc. I stick mainly to single player games with fixed end states (very little full sandbox stuff).

    I have seen people whose social lives have practically disappeared because they always 'need' to be on their MMOs so can see that there are potential problems in certain facets of gaming (none of my MMO friends have let it get in the way of work etc. though)

    @retr0gamer I haven't looked for a few weeks. It was unknown then (although expected). A shame that my physical PC copy will be 'incomplete' but as long as there is an easily accessible patch that's not the end of the world. Reply 0

    I got this on PC last year and enjoyed it. It is a bit clunky (and my controls weren't quite set up right) but I enjoyed the very wordy story and general weirdness. Odd to see no mention of there being logic puzzles too (and an autosolve if you really don't want to solve them and just get on with the story) and a semblance of free roaming to it. The PS4 version apparently has 2 new chapters too (IIRC penned by the 2 original authors) which haven't been announced for PC yet. The release is also midprice for the standard edition too which is nice (with the LE costing around 45 quid, but I got the PC LRG physical so just doubledipped on the standard edition for this).

    Hopefully says will be sufficient to get the previously Japnese mobile only sequel translated and ported too that Suda 51 apparently wants to also release.

    Overall I really enjoyed the game and could see it as a prettified product of its times but it isn't for everyone.

  • 10 games that defined the ZX Spectrum

  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 10/04/2017

    @ghostgate2001 I got Magic and Mayhem but didn't play it much. Never knew about the game afer it though. Lords of Chaos was cool too but missed the simplicity and 8 player maybem of Chaos (preparing a multiplayer game took a lot longer). I liked the campaign and had the expansion tape too. Oddly despite being a big Gollop fan I missed Laser Squad and still haven't played it. Chaos Reborn was nice when I last played it before 1.0. Probably quite different now as I never got back into it after a PC-free period for a year or two. Got to play and get massacred by Mr Gollop himself in one of the Gollop Whallop events. It had a cool friendly community at lawandchaos back then too, wonder if it still is... Have to get back to it. Never even tried the single player on it.

    Looking forward to the new Gollop game.

    Agree with everyone who mentioned Chaos. Best 1.99 I ever soent (Firebird rerelease).

    Noone has nentioned Incentive's Splat, M.A.D.'s Amourote (spelled incorrectly...) or Deactivators (an evil puzzle game).

    I started with a Vic20 then got the Spectrum 48K with the usual Horizons, Chequered Flag and Make a Chip. Also got Splat with mine but no Horace ;)

    The Level 9 text adventures were nice but obviously multiformat. A popular 128K model helped some of the later releases though with expanded text over the other 8 bits.

    Edit - I remember Micronaut 1 being very impressive at the time too (Trapdoor and the other Don Priestly games too in a different way)

  • Bloodstained announced for Switch, cancelled for Wii U

  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 22/03/2017

    I was a WiiU physical backer for this as at the time I didn't even have a PS4. I did wonder if it would get cancelled as we hadn't heard much and IIRC it and the Vita had a different dev team. I decided to keep it as WiiU due to it likely being the hardest version to get physically afterwards if the game turned out well. Switch may keep that role so despite not owning a Switch (or planning to get one for a good amount of time) I will likely keep the automatic change to that version for the same reasons.

    For all the people suggesting we would want PC as the default that is the format I would least want a physically backed game changed to. I have backed many PC projects (nearly all digital tiers) but this is one I want physically on a console and it seems I can change my mind on choice of format for a while yet (the April date is for refunds).

    And even the very early demo they released seemed pretty decent for the stage it was at. For the record it doesn't run ideally on an Intel interated GPU as I had to try it on one as my gfx card had died.

  • Mana series slated for Switch in Japan

  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 22/03/2017

    Square happily retranslated the PS1 (and possibly changed them for GBA) version of the Final Fantasies so it isn't too much of a stretch that they could do SD3 quite easily. If I remember correctly technical issues were the biggest challenge with the fan translation rather than the amount of text and SE are not going to have that problem. Whether they do or not is still open but Squenix have been pretty good with translating stuff in recent years so there may be hope. Reply 0
  • Drawn to Death will be a free PS Plus title at launch

  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 15/03/2017

    On the top down maze action shooty games I seem to have been the only person who liked Alien Breed 2 on release (A1200 version). Didn't review well and got judged as too difficult (had 2 passwords through the whole game for continuing) but the first time I got to the first checkpoint I managed to get all the way through the game with enough lives left to kill the final boss with my 'invulnerability' damage after running out of ammo.

    I didn't ever play Chaos Engine too seriously though, just the odd dabble. Grabbed the recent remake but barely touched it.

    @Plumbus I actually bought Conkers bad Fur Day on N64 (new, not preowned) after trying it on an emulator as I really wasn't sure if I'd lime it and was pleasantly surprised. Also played some DC and PS2 games I own on disc on emulators as the consoles were inaccessible.

    It is rare but some of us try to support our software market.

  • Call of Duty will "return to its roots" after Infinite Warfare sales disappoint

  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 10/02/2017

    As someone with zero interest in the multiplayer side the setting for this game was the first time I have had any interest in a Call of Duty game. The same generic WW2/near modern sertings have little appeal to me but I anticipated there would be a backlash on this setting as soon as it was announced (if the multiplayer is poor too that is a fair criticism but a lot of the backlash was long hefore anyone knew that(.

    Played the single player demo and quite enjoyed it. Might eventually end up as the only Call if Suty I ever buy.

    FPS fans seem to be very set in their ways these days with their obsession with 'realistic' settings and only human enemies etc. I miss the days when we had a bit more variety with Doom 3, Half Life 2 and Far Cry competing (even if I hear the ninhuman element were annoying in the latter as bullet sponges). Sadly the multiplayer crowd is where the money is so most FPS focus that way now (the recent singleplayer only Wolfenstein games were a pleasant exception)

  • Life of Black Tiger is the worst PS4 game we've ever played

  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 26/01/2017

    I was quite sad when I saw the title of this appearibg everywhere. Reminded me of the old Capcom classic, Black Tiger which was one of my favourite arcade games as a kid. I suppose if they ever do a reimagining of the game they had better use the Japanese Black Dragon title so it doesn't get associated with this. (Not that a new Black Tiger is ever likely to be honest) Reply +4
  • 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
  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 13/01/2017

    @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...)

    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

    @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...)

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).

    @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)

And I don't forsee any others getting a belated full release like Minecraft unless they get any season extensions like it did.
