  • 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

    @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).

    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
  • King's Quest finale to launch this month

  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 15/10/2016

    Ah yes, forgot about that bonus chapter nonsense. Very consumer unfriendly practice at the best of times but when you have the stupid way that PSN doesn't allow purchase of things you contain part of it is a terrible idea. Reply 0

    @TokyoHazard Seems far too common a tactic with episodic stuff now. Most new Telltale stuff are missing chapters (GOT, Minecraft, Batman). Just meams I will only get digital on extreme sales from them which aren't too uncommon whereas I would have paid a bit more for a retail package (I grabbed Tales from Borderlands physically but not played it yet) Reply +2
  • 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
  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 10/10/2016

    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.

    @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.

  • Outcast remake heading to PC, PS4 and Xbox One in March

  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 12/08/2016

    I enjoyed Outcast back in the day. Felt pretty open and despite the low resolution the voxel landscapes were very eye-catching compared to most other things around. It is nice to see the remake back on track after failing at KS. If it turns out well I wonder if we will ever get the canned sequel too... Reply +3

  • Dead Rising remasters get release date and price

  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 09/08/2016

    @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)

    It is a shame that the 2 miniadventures (CW and CZ) don't seem to be part of this.

  • Yes, Final Fantasy 15 has a season pass

  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 03/08/2016

    @Zeppelino Thise situations should have the season passes free by default. Ok, it was insubstantial DLC, but at least Nintendo dod that with Tokyo Mirage Sessions. Even the later released DLC.

    As for the game it depends on size of story content really.

  • 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?)

    @Spiders I remember that Prince of Persia Sands of Time on PC had a (legacy soundcard port) controller bundle (found the box a few days ago in a tidyup) and was released at a similar time so there is probably some controller support. How to get a modern controller working with those settings may be moe challenging (not tried myself) Reply 0

  • Fans create mod that restores censored content for Tokyo Mirage Sessions

  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 28/06/2016

    My take on this one is that I have zero problems with the aging up (if aging a character up by a year is considered a problem people worry too easily). I don't really have any actual problem with the costume change for Tsubasa's song as it is very minor and still looks pretty damn close to the original one. Also the cloud around a boss's breast area wasn't too bad.

    But at the same time they have a character in the same area who is wearing a much worse, more revealing costume that has been left in.

    Also, the changes to the second dungeon affect the theme and plot a lot with the thematic change being very jarring making a potential model being uncomfortable wearing a 'punky' outfit which makes little sense compared to the original bikini shoots which is a problem within the industry it is trying to portray. This is the one that shoyld have remained as it was and with the extra uear of age really shouln't have been a problem being left mostly untouched (the associated background art in the dungeon also fitted the theme). Persona 4 had worse content (Risa/Kanji) but it seems going for the 12 rating for a game unlikely to interest that demographic has hampered it.

    Not looked into the patch yet though.

  • Korean teenager answers her pro Overwatch doubters with live demonstration of skill

  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 22/06/2016

    Not actually watched the video (long) but to question the people asking if she only got questioned because she is a girl, was there anything in her character or user tk actually let people know she was a girl or is this just an assumption? Most online userids mask gender so I had to ask (I suppose watching the vid would answer what her character name is).

    As for the people saying they are etty for quitting etc, I think they are missing the cultural setting here. 'Face' and 'losing face' is still a huge thing in modern Korea (also Japan to an extent still) and to be proven to falsely accuse someone is a shameful thing and quitting is what would be expected of the false accusers. Just because we lack anything like that in the west (honour etc) doesn't mean we need to try and judge everyone through our own western cultural goggles. Living in Korea for 3 years you get to see a lot of little things that would be brushed off over here which are shameful over there. This just seems like a normal Korean response to making a proven false accusation to me.

  • Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE review

  • One_Vurfed_Gwrx 22/06/2016

    @desilady It is a lower age rating than later Personas. I think this is only a PEGI 12.

    My main question is if they fixed the loading times which I recall being one of the major complaints about the Japanese version. But I expect it to be decent and at least they didn't feel compelled to throw Persona 3+ social links in just because it became the more popular series (I do like the later Personas (and P2) but don't need the other SMT offshoots just copying it)

    Having just looked on Steam I see the 85% off is only for owners of the originals, so the Humble Bundle mixed with that shluld be a cheaper option than buying straight from Steam.

    I remember things like Sleeping Dogs that IIRC not only charged for the 'enhanced' version but was actually supposed to be inferior to the original in some ways.

  • Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens season pass lets you play as Jar Jar

    Again no WiiU season pass. Surely it is a straightforward enough thing to offer at zero extra cost to them (having the engine already) Oddly I notice a few places offering the Jabba's Palace DLC pack for WiiU preorder so that version does support DLC...

    For anyone who wonders why I'd want the WiiU version, my son is a nightmare with the dynamic split screen so a screen each is he sanest way for co-op and so far I gather most of the games aren't too different to the PS4 ones. Costs them impulse DLC buys as we haven't bought any LEGO DLC. Didn't a few of the games on WiiU have it and a few didn't, seemingly arbitrarily?

    @SonicUk as mentioned above there is an Asian disc bersion up for preorder on Play Asia.

    I have been debating ordering it but I really don't know too much about the quality of this one despite having watched some of the videos. As for the original emulated SOTB I recall hearing that most of the 8bit ports played better for some reason (I had it on Spectrum, SOTB with parallax... in monochrome ;). I also agree that it would have been nice t see Beast 2 and 3 included too as a bonus as I really enjoyed 2 and didn't play much of 3.

    Pretty sure this is the method I used to get it months ago when it was posted in the forum. Worked fine then uninstallled the suwi stuff from the tablet.
    @nooneinparticular I only 'bought' the demo on my European account so it shouldn't be the US version as I would imagine there will be different signatures etc and you do end up downloading it from your original 'download' button. I remember looking into it a bit at the time and decided to give it a whirl. The demo was interesting but annoying towards the end.
