    Not sure why Naughty Dog would help show the game in a state that no one will be able to play it in.

    It does take time to get used to but the joycon d-pad really isn't that bad. I am able to play many games like Shovel Knight and Ultra SF 2 with it with few problems.

    Brilliant on the Switch with great use of HD rumble although I still can't get past level 4!

    Can only imagine how insane it is on PSVR!

    I finally tried GTA V this week just playing for a very short time past the intro and in control of Franklin. What is the fuss about? The controls and physics are absolutely awful so I just gave up!

    I will say I only put 20 mins into it but thats all it took for me to realise it wasn't for me. Fair play to everyone who enjoys the game but I don't get it.

  • Ultra Street Fighter 2 on Nintendo Switch does the business for Capcom

  • SBandy 28/07/2017

    I spent 30 taking my dad to go see Guardians of the Galaxy 2, that was 14 for the tickets and 16 for popcorn and drink each . I enjoyed it but I did not consider it value for money overall for two and a half hours entertainment.

    I bought Ultra SF2 for 35. So far I have put in 20 odd hours and intend to put in many more on the arcade mode and countless hours on the online and local multiplayer. I consider that to be value for money no matter how the game was formed,or how old it is, or how much perceived effort was put in by Capcom in making it.

    I got my moneys worth and more and that is how the value of the game should be judged in my opinion.

    When people say PvP do they mean competitive online gaming? And is PvE single player?

  • Doom's paid DLC is now free for everyone

  • SBandy 20/07/2017

    I might be tempted to pick the game up for 12 quid for the single player aspect.

    If I had paid for the DLC I would probably be quite pissed off right now though as I would feel ripped off.

  • Thoughts on three months spent with Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    @Tslog

    All I got from your post was "I hate it so you all should too!"

    I think you pretty much said that at one point.

    I disagree with everything you said and it is a top two greatest of all time for me after Resi 4.

    But to each their own.

    You know you could skip the cooking animation right?

    I will humbly disagree with the vast majority of your other points but yes some shortcuts would have been nice.

    I also would have liked the classic outfit you get for completing all 120 shrines to have encompassed all your outfits' qualities but ah well.

    Still best game I have played since Resi 4 which also had many complaints about UI and item management. Funny that!

    Edit: Also the Transformers line was completely ridiculous and kind of made your entire, decently thought out, post come accross as petty.

    @kolkurtzz

    Haha I just made the link beween the games and movies in respect of diminshing returns.

    I dont think the Uncharted games are just interactive movies like some people say and I very much enjoy the mix of gameplay and cutscenes the majority of the time. Just the balance veered too much to cutscene in 4.

    @jabberwocky

    The final act of 3 was extremely disappointing for sure.

    Uncharted 2 is a masterpiece in my opinion and so I can understand why Naughty Dog have not been able to surpass it. I still enjoy all 4 games but there has been a slight feeling of diminsishing returns somewhat similar to a movie series, probably because the story is so important to these games.

    Uncharted 4 was overall better than 3 for me but just too bloated.

  • SBandy 07/07/2017

    I love Uncharted but have previously said the 4th one suffered from being too bloated and this was my main example of that.

    This section just annoyed me, one because I just wanted to get on with the game, two because this felt extremely forced to have a cute look back at Naughty Dogs old game (I dont blame them for that though really) and three because I have no love at all for Crash Bandicoot games.

    If anything it just made me not like the character and his games even more! All just my opinion of course!

    I have no problem killing the majority of wildlife in Zelda BOTW with a few rules: only kill the wolves if they attack first and never kill any foxes, or horses of course!

    I think in MH it is because these fights are long and drawn out and you see the physical impact on the animal. Whether it is a monster or whatever kind of creature when it starts limping or looking in pain I feel guilty!

    Plus as UncleLou said the more improved graphics would just make it more real and unsettling for me!

  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe patch makes it easier for players to catch up

  • SBandy 29/06/2017

    This is needed otherwise it would completely unbalance the game and ruin the point of Mario Kart being a party racing game everyone can play. Plus when racing online I notice the same people always finishing higher than the rest because there is a skill to how you use the items you get as well as your racing skills!

    There is the option for creating or joining an online group that has no weapons if you fancy a straight up race. I tried it a few times and it was OK but I prefer the chaotic fun of the game with items.

  • TumbleSeed is toning down its difficulty after only 0.2 per cent of players could finish it

  • SBandy 27/06/2017

    @Shakey_Jake33

    Thumper is rock hard but I love it. I have only got to level 4 but as the levels are not random you can learn each course.

    Plus the game is just a trip and when you get into "the zone" it is an amazing experience!

  • SBandy 27/06/2017

    I like the game but only got past the first quarter a few times and died pretty much right away.

    Plus the game just didn't explain things clearly especially what the aura's actually did so I only used the main three (flag, heart and crystal).

    It was soul destroying trying to complete the first quarter when the difficulty seemed to ramp up considerably and introduce new monsters or obstacles in the same area each time so I couldn't even learn from experience as no game was the same.

    I know that is the point but I thought it would show its full hand in each quarter, just in a different order each time, to allow me to learn.

    I look forward to this update.

  • Why Star Fox 2's release on SNES mini is such a big deal

  • Uncharted: The Lost Legacy treads charted territory in dev walkthrough

  • SBandy 21/06/2017

    @kirankara

    Uncharted 2 is a masterpiece and one of my favourite games but in hindsight 4 was just too bloated story wise and therefore didn't flow as well.

    When a game made me complete a level of Crash Bandicoot to continue the story I realised something wasn't quite right!

    But like I said I will probably get this when that itch for a big adventure game arrives again, and I have no doubt it will be am extremely playable polished experience!

  • SBandy 21/06/2017

    It just looks....exactly the same as all 4 Uncharted games. I have enjoyed them all but I definitely started to feel the fatigue with 4, and mainly because the story side of things took too much of a front seat.

    This game is same scenario, 1 guy with a million henchman who will likely doublecross the heroes and result in mass murder over a few shiny trinkets.

    Yes Mario always has to rescue Peach but the main thing that changes there is the gameplay in new and exciting ways!

    The biggest joke is I know I will buy this!

    I will probably pick this up BUT FOR THE LOVE OF GOD NINTENDO!! Please release F Zero GX remaster on the Switch! Literally all you would have to do is push the res up to 1080p and add online play and the game would be perfect and beautiful.

    And perhaps have a super easy option for the story mode!

  • Ultra Street Fighter 2: The Final Challengers review

  • SBandy 28/05/2017

    Right. Now I have played this game a fair bit I have to say that I believe this review to be a joke. Anyone who enjoys Street Fighter should get plenty of hours entertainment out of this.

    Also kudos to Nintendo, these are probably the best anaolgue sticks for a fighting game on any console I have ever used to the point that playing with one joycon with the grip attached has become my preferred way to play docked. And I have the pro controller!

    This review again, a joke.

    This is about value for money and I have no doubt I will get my money's worth from this game. But I respect and understand the opposing viewpoints.

    I hope this is a precedent set by Eurogamer and other games will get the same treatment if they offer a scant package in their view.

    I am loving all these indies. I personally am so sick of "AAA" titles from most of the big companies in their current shape. It is just sequel after sequel and they all seem to be getting the awful, awful loot box crap added to them.

    The indies are a breath of fresh air compared to that!

  • Yooka-Laylee patch will tone down gibberish voices

  • SBandy 03/05/2017

    Playtonic just had to look at Shovel Knight for an example of how you can be inspired by older gen games but fix the issues that plagued them at the same time.

    I was excited for Yooka Laylie because it was the old Rare team getting back together. I wanted to see their modern take on 3D platformers, their equivalent to Mario Galaxy or Mario 3D World, not Mario 64!

    I took a chance on this game for the Switch today as a birthday treat for myself.

    It is rock hard but the combination of the music, visuals and the cool HD rumble is kind of hypnotic. I can see myself putting quite a few hours into this game.

    I'm still happy with my 720p plasma tv! All my consoles look great on it as does any HD and SD tv/video.

    LCD, LED and right now OLED don't compare. It is a real shame the industry has decided to move on from plasma seemingly just because the tv's cant be thin or bendable. I dread the day my plasma tv gives up the ghost and I have to 'upgrade'.

    Don't know what it is about Nintendo but something about the company, its consoles and its games really does seem to get people really pissed off!

    Just the mention of Nintendo and people lose their shit. It is really strange especially because most of the people seem to have no intention of ever purchasing a Nintendo product anyway so what difference does it make to their lives?!

    Of course there can be valid complaints/concerns about any company but a lot of the hate appears to be completely irrational! Meh it is quite entertaining to read though!

  • Nintendo Classic Mini NES is being discontinued

  • SBandy 13/04/2017

    Nintendo seems to have a "waste not want not" approach (I think I have used that term right haha) which to be fair usually works in their favour. They don't lose too much money because they don't often over produce stock that won't sell.

    So their failures don't hurt too bad and when they get it right they profit big time. I guess they maybe know this business better than a lot of us give them credit for.

    Personally I was never interested in the NES mini. I want the games but I want them on Switch and I want the improved emulation NES mini had over the Wii U versions.

    Bring on the Switch VC. Yo Nintendo you are sitting on a bloody goldmine so make use of it (guess they aren't that smart!).

  • Arms release date confirmed for June

    A game that would benefit from a demo.

    Looking forward to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and can't wait for Ultra Street Fighter 2!

    This game I am on the fence about along with Splatoon 2. I own and enjoyed the first Splatoon but after a couple of months playing it solidly I lost interest and the sequel hasn't reignited my interest. Although Im not much of a fan of team games so that is also a factor.

    There are plenty of interesting eshop only games already out and coming out over the next few months leading up to E3 so I personally am happy with the current library of games. I can only play do much!

  • Uncharted: The Lost Legacy release date unearthed

  • SBandy 11/04/2017

    I loved all 4 Uncharted games but hearing Nadine talk about another guy with hundreds of men and his own expert and tonnes of weapons made me think I am a bit fatigued with the formula.

    I got the Drake collection on PS4 and played through in order just in time for Uncharted 4 so maybe I just need a break. I will keep an eye on this in case it brings something a bit different but if it is more of the same I shall hold off for now.

    The Last of Us Part 2 though?! I am more than ready!

  • Persona 5 is series' biggest launch to date

  • SBandy 10/04/2017

    @Jarlath

    It was kind of my point. Last gen it probably would have been more niche but the PS4 in particular has really helped promote these more maybe traditionally niche games to the front and they are selling well and giving gamers some real variety to their gaming. That is only a good thing.

    Japanese games do seem to be making a big comeback this gen and that is great news as I personally am sick to death of COD, FIFA, Assasins Creed yearly refresh type games.

  • SBandy 10/04/2017

    The PS4 is doing wonders for more niche games. A true games machine.

    Also glad to see Zelda still in the top ten as it is now my fave game of all time as things stand.

    Have to confess I know next to nothing about Persona games so maybe I will start to look into it now my time with Zelda is coming to a temporary end.

    If I see a hint of danger I hide Cecil away and continue on foot until the danger has been taken care of.

    I liberated Cecil from a Bokoblin rider, the first I came accross near Gerudo after I left the Plateau (or more accurately accidentally fell down the waterfall), and we have been the best of pals since!

    I honestly didn't cheat, I was so distraught I couldn't concentrate and the Lynel killed me also so the game automatically brought me to my last save which thankfully still included Cecil alive and well.

    When, if, he falls in battle again I will be more prepared to fight and will have to live with the guilt!
