  • ZombiU is coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC in August

  • SBandy 31/07/2015

    Bit cheeky to quote Eurogamers review score when it was about the Wii U version and that review was clearly influenced by the great gamepad integration that the other versions will not have.

    Plus unless you have actually played the game on a Wii U it is honestly hard to understand the tension the gamepad features add to the game and therefore improve it. Plus I can't see any real improvement in the graphics but that doesn't really matter in the long run.

    Bottom line is the Wii U version will most likely still be the best version all things considered. A great survival horror game.

  • The Street Fighter 5 beta isn't working

  • SBandy 24/07/2015

    @vert1go

    Well to be fair this is surely the point of the beta. Plus Splatoon had the exact same issue with it's fancily named beta test where it didn't work for an hour on the second test fire round. That game and I'm sure this one will be the better for this.

  • Take a look at Uncharted 2 remastered for PlayStation 4

  • SBandy 16/07/2015

    Uncharted 2 blew me away on the PS3, it was the best of the trilogy and the best game on the PS3 for me. Can't wait to play it again with the others at a much smoother framerate on PS4. Reply +12

  • Project Cars 2 announced, launches crowdfunding campaign

  • SBandy 22/06/2015

    Surely this goes against the whole point of crowdfunding?! Crowdfunding got them a successful first game they made a bit of cash with and thats great. They should use that cash to make the new game otherwise they are just taking advantage of goodwill. On principle I have to hope it doesn't get met. Reply -1
  • Nintendo's painful metamorphosis leaves fans reeling

  • SBandy 17/06/2015

    I love Nintendo but this E3 shows how out of touch they can sometimes be. While Microsoft and Sony were giving people what they wanted (backwards compatability, rare classics, FF7, Last Guardian etc) Nintendo were taking us for fools. Kinda actually mocking us by revealing spin offs or rubbish alternatives to the games we really want. Even when they gave us a game we have been asking for in Starfox, their insistence in using the gamepad screen shows they have forgot what made that franchise so great. Starfox is an epic arcade shooter at heart with simple controls, thats what we want!

    The low sales of Wii U should have shown Nintendo that their core fans are not as many as they thought. They need to start giving us core fans what we repeatedly ask for eg Metroid, F Zero, GC games, Improved VC etc.

    They keep trying to reinvent the wheel with controls and they need to realise it cant be done. Hell the Wii U pro controller is a work of art except for lack of analogue triggers. When you secondary controller is better than the main you have to relaise you need to rethink your strategy. Give your loyal customers the experiences they want or risk losing them, plain and simple.

    @vertigo Forget Mario.

    Watching the treehouse, the view from the game pad is very dofferent from the tv view so it appears you need to be lookong at the gamepad. I am hoping they confirm there is a classic option.

  • SBandy 16/06/2015

    @vertigo what I was using was an extreme example but the basics of mario have not changed. I was more highlighting completely messing with the entire experience of the Starfox games. A part of it has always been about the cinematic experience and that is now being impacted by the new controls, in my opinion. Reply 0
  • SBandy 16/06/2015

    Maybe I am being over dramatic, I dunno my hype for Starfox has been unreal haha. But watching the treehouse show. The players focus was on the pad only, not a good sign for me. Reply 0
  • SBandy 16/06/2015

    @Ironsoldier Mario games have kept the core controls for years now, obviously a distinction between 2d and 3d series.

    As someone who has played Lylat Wars on Gamecube and Classic Controller on my Wii/ Wii U a N64 controller is not required. Playing through the gamepad for what has always been a cinematic game is stupid, and my mind wont be changed on that. Innovation is great, but not always required. Plus so far (cause more might happen) Nintendos E3 has been rubbish.

    A fool fixes things that aren't broken. Star Fox 64 nailed the controls, wht mess with that?

    Also Nintendo don't mess with the Mario controls just the surroundings. Why can't they just have a straight sequel for Starfox/ F zero? Hardly games with an overabundance of sequels.

    A lack of understanding of what your fans want.

    UNDERWHELMING! Also lets be clear Nintendo I do not want a new control method with the gamepad for Star Fox, you nailed the controls with 64 so stick with them. I did not buy an HD console and an HDtv to play a game through the game pad! I am massively disappointed. Reply 0

    Splatoon really is a great game and my approach to matches is constantly changing. Still addicted to turf war but will start tryig out ranked battles soon. The single player game is also fun and I still havent completed it because after playing it for a half hour the urge to fight for my turf becomes too strong and Im back online! Reply +3

  • Sonic Dash rings in 100m downloads

  • SBandy 09/06/2015

    Mario Kart 8 may have 'only' sold 5.1 million, but consider that Nintendo were probably making at least 25 quid a pop and I am guessing that they made a lot more money from their game than Sega did. And the amount of hours poured into that game probably rival the Sonic game.

    Add to that the consoles sold as a result of the game and its INSANE attachment rate and I think Nintendo were quite happy with that games performance somehow.

    This articles tone is pish, don't even know why Nintendo is really being mentioned apart from some pointless digs.

    They don't even get the mass murderer personality right as history shows when people go on these real life murder spree's they beleive their name is very important and leave diary's/videos trying to justify their actions.

    Call it what you want, but these are guys just trying to make money from controversy, they have no bigger goal.

  • Splatoon is Wii U's fastest-selling new franchise in UK

  • SBandy 01/06/2015

    Regarding all the Splatoon not for adults comments. All I can say on the subject is that it is the most fun I have had in years playing online competitve multiplayer. The last time I experienced such a fresh addictive game was CoD Modern Warfare on my Xbox 360.

    Fun isn't limited by age.

  • SBandy 01/06/2015

    Splatoon is fantastic. Some of the moves I have been able to pull off during online matches to get out of a few tricky situations make me feel like a boss! Example: I'm surrounded,so ink the side of a box, squid up it, jump off and splat the fools underneath me. Damn satisfying.

    It also says a lot about how balanced the game is that I am still using the first weapon combo and able to compete aggresively! Bubbler for the win!

  • Video: LGBTI characters in games are important

  • SBandy 30/05/2015

    This is clearly a delicate topic. I don't think a character in a game should be identified by their sexuality, its just one part of who they are as a whole. A well written, fleshed out character should be the only goal.

    I would like to see a more realistic representation of every different type of person in games (race, sexuality, religion etc) but It is also something that should be left entirely up to the game's creators. If they feel pressured to change the images/origins of their characters for whatever reason is wrong I think.

  • In Theory: Nintendo GameCube remasters on Wii U

  • SBandy 25/04/2015

    @SpaceMonkey77

    Your first point I disagree with, at the time nothing on xbox or ps2 was more demanding. I'd consider F Zero GX the highlight of that gen technically (although RE 4 is close second and my fave of all time).

    Your point about PC is probably right. Im just a bit annoyed companies on Xbox One and PS4 would get out of that way of thinking and concentrate on doing their own thing, a bit like Nintendo. I enjoyed it when titles took advantage of the strength of each individual systems eg wrestling games varied wildly from system to system but were all enjoyable in their own right.

    Gamecube was a powerhouse with a controller that melted into the hand.

    What I honestly don't understand is, with all these GC games still looking awesome at 60fps, why do so many companies insist on forgoing a super smooth framrate for slightly better special effects/resolution. I would gladly have a slightly lower resolution or less sparkly effect for 60fps.

    Gamecube proves you can have best of both worlds, and in today so do games like Smash Wii U, Mario Kart 8 and Killer Instinct and Last of Us remastered.

    Years from now it will be the games with the best performance that will have aged the best.

  • Mario Kart 8 x Animal Crossing DLC track list and footage

  • SBandy 15/04/2015

    Looks amazing. To think, I got 5.49 off the digital price of Mario Kart 8 for upgrading to the Wii U VC Super Mario Kart, I then got a free game in the promotion (New SMBU - underrated), and to top it off some of the best DLC ever at a great price and now the free 200cc update which will almost be like a new game with how every track will play differently. Mario Kart 8 has been the definition of value for money! Reply +11
  • N64, DS games launch on Wii U Virtual Console

    @IronSoldier

    For 1.79 I now get to play Mario 64 in bed, there is nothing obscene about that. And when it comes to backwards compatability Nintendo is leagues ahead of Microsoft and Sony in that regard in that it actually has it. 1.79 is worth the price of an upgrade for gamepad play and miiverse and flexible controls. And the full prices arent that awful either for value for money. In my opinion of course.

    Uncharted Trilogy remastered for October to December this year would fill the gap nicely. I have just completed Last of Us remasted on PS4 and it is a masterpiece, now up there with my fave games of all time.

    I have sky high hopes for Uncharted 4 so if more time is required then so be it. I hope, after the very minor disappoinent I had with Uncharted 3, it reaches the heights of Uncharted 2!

    I LOVED the first left 4 dead on the 360 and it gave me so many memories with my mates acting as a team, and a lot where we screwed each other over!

    Regardless of all this technical mumbo jumbo it just seems that the team behind that game have forgot what made that game magical. The randomness of the Directors AI and the 4 on 4 team play and the great set pieces.

    I will admit I haven't played this in any form yet but when the gameplay videos bore me I know there is something missing.

    Give me Left 4 Dead 3!

  • The Nintendo difference: Wii U's first two years

  • SBandy 29/11/2014

    I adore my Wii U. I also love my xbox one (aka my Killer Instinct machine). Was playing smash there for the first time and it is gorgeous, online worked for me too which is great as it is hard to organise mates over for local play these days.

    I love the game pad, but just got a pro controller this week and it is fantastic, playing Mario Kart and Most Wanted with it feels great, should have included one with the console I feel.

    I have a feeling in a few years people will look back at the Wii U console and regard it as an absolute classic, I already know it is.

    Thank goodness it appears Nintendo insist on no screen tear in the games on their system. A part of me thinks thats why all the third party games skip the Wii U, because Nintendo has quality standards. After the issues with the third party releases in the last few months, I'm actually now convinced.

    Microsoft and Sony, demand better!

  • Face-Off: Assassin's Creed Unity

  • SBandy 17/11/2014

    @BOFH_UK

    I think they should give a proper score immediately reflecting the state the game is in at release as that is when the majority of people will buy it and have to suffer through unfinished games. If anything they would be letting the game makers off the hook by leaving a score off.

    However games sites would need to be really honest and award the mark deserved and not the mark they want the game to be.

    Maybe Games makers would raise standards if their games were getting 3's and 4's instead of safe 7's.

  • Assassin's Creed: Unity launch beats Black Flag's in UK chart

    An absolute classic like Bayonetta 2 fades away into nothing and broken games like Unity sell like hotcakes. Sometimes I despair.

    BUT then I realise everyone has different tastes,I will continue to play and love my Bayonettas and people will find enjoyment out of Assassin's Creed so who am I to judge!

    PS I did play the first Assassin's Creed back in the day for a couple of hours and it bored me to death so never bothered with the series again.
