  • What Street Fighter 5 will - and won't - have at launch

    I can survive on single player stories and online ranked for a well over a month before the rest of the game shows up so I am happy enough. Game looks gorgeous! Reply +6

    If they had done any decent market research they probably would have realised the the popularity for this kind of gaming experience with lots of expensive periperals had largely died off. Reply +1
  • Mario Kart 64 doesn't have Ghost data on Wii U

  • SBandy 22/01/2016

    Does the save state not remedy this?

    Its not a big deal for me personally as I have never been fussed with time trials but I know it would be a killer feature for some!

  • Lap up Mario Kart 64 on Wii U Virtual Console this week

  • SBandy 18/01/2016


    Actually with the Wii U VC most of the titles are the US Versions of the game usually except those with a lot of dialogue. F Zero snes and Mario Kart snes are 60hz, as are DK Country 1 and 3( but not 2 randomly). Mario 64, Wave Race and 1080 are all the US versions. Super Metroid and Link to the past are PAL versions though. It varies!

  • The Division beta gets January launch date

  • SBandy 15/01/2016

    One day earlier on Xbox one?!? I will rush out and buy one now!!

    I actually do have an Xbox One but these time delays for things like this and DLC on multiplatform games are stupid as fuck. Is it really a big factor on people's choice of console?

  • Zelda: Twilight Princess HD has a new dungeon

  • SBandy 14/01/2016


    Agree with you there but it's probably the only other semi realistic option that Nintendo might consider. Having to pay to unlock on disc content is a joke and I don't agree with it, but it is effectively what people are doing when they purchase amiibos for that purpose.

    For example I would like the option to pay a nominal amount to unlock the amiibo content in Splatoon and Shovel Knight. A 2 player mode is quite a big deal and should not be limited to people able to get a Shovel Knight amiibo.

    I don't like this practice. I have the limited edition on preorder but thats cause I want the cd soundtrack not the amiibo and don't have any other amiibo.

    I think a solution to this would be to also be able to unlock amiibo locked content by way of normal dlc. Therefore people who aren't fussed on amiibo can also get the content. Simples

  • Fast Racing Neo review

  • SBandy 10/12/2015

    I have played it for a couple of hours and although it is a tiny bit rough around the edges I can say that I think its a cracker game!

    Whenever you are in a race it demands your undivided attention, I like the colour switching mechanic and the music and sense of speed gets the blood pumping! Also online has zero lag and plays well except for a couple of races being non starters hence the rough around the edges comment, but I am sure that will be ironed out

    Plus the pro controller and this game were made for each other!

    Overall well worth the price of admission. Well done Shinen!

    To you..... not so relevant to you.

    As I have watched game makers try and publish incomplete games or buggy games on other consoles I have seen games on th Wii U be released in perfect working order without ridiculous season passes.

    To me the Wii U has been the perfect tonic to this generation of money grabbing bastards that are the publishers of today.

    To clarify I own all three consoles and never have been or will be a PC man. I own my Xbox One for KI and I own my PS4 for Street Fighter and Naughty Dog. Most games I own from this gen are Nintendo games.

    I believe a bit of context is required. This is an indy game made by a team of about 7 people and being sold at a very reasonable price of 11 quid. Plus it is a genre of racing that hasn't had a new game in a while and has been getting good/great reviews so far. Plus I think some of the tunes are great and the graphics and sensation of speed very good.

    On that basis I am buying it.

  • All signs point to a PS4 price cut in the UK today

  • SBandy 21/10/2015

    I am playing through the Uncharted collection at the moment and its great. Completed the first and halfway through the second and its great seeing the incremental improvements leading up to Naughty Dog perfecting third person shooting/stealth/combat in the masterpiece that is The Last of Us. PS4 is a great console but says a lot maybe that most of my games are PS3 remasters.

    Will have to pick up Bloodborne.

  • P.T. meets Gone Home in Allison Road, now on Kickstarter

  • SBandy 22/09/2015


    Whilst I respect your opinion I have to disagree about Resident Evil 4. Not only is it not an abomination, it is one of the best games of all time and my favourite game of all time. It is also dripping in atmosphere and managing your inventory was never more important than in that game on the higher difficulties.

  • 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


    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.

  • 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.

  • SBandy 16/06/2015

    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

  • Sonic Dash rings in 100m downloads

    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.
