  • PlayStation Plus October line-up revealed

  • SegaBlueSky 30/09/2015

    Have to admit this is a pretty poor lineup. But it doesn't upset me personally - I've wanted to play Broken Age for, well...ages, and I've already got a 'to-play' list that will last me well into the new year. Reply -1
  • Silent Hills would have been even better than we thought

  • SegaBlueSky 28/09/2015

    On the one hand this makes me so, so sad and angry. BUT, I'd never heard of this guy before and will now be going out to go buy what appear to be some exceptional horror-themed comics. Silver linings.

    Also for the record will jump all over a Kickstarter if one came along. Just saying.

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

  • SegaBlueSky 22/09/2015

    Love the look of this and how it's built up from just a guy trying to emulate what he liked about PT. Definitely backing this for a PS4 version! Reply +1
  • Going face to face with The Last Guardian

  • SegaBlueSky 17/09/2015

    Ridiculously excited about this game. I just love all the mannerisms and nuances to Trico's movements - it was a simply video but I was absolutely captivated just watching him move about. I get the feeling that by the time I finish this game I'm going to feel like I've been interacting with a real creature. Also, I will probably be drowning in a sea of my own tears. And then I'll play it again. Reply +2
  • Star Wars Battlefront beta playable offline, open to everyone

  • SegaBlueSky 17/09/2015

    There have only been a handful of Star Wars games that have ever got me truly excited - Star Wars Trilogy Arcade and probably the first Rogue Squadron. But this looks like the best anticipation has gone from zero to frothing at the mouth in a very short time and can't wait to give the beta a go! Reply +5
  • More than an expansion, Destiny: The Taken King is a relaunch of Bungie's vision

  • SegaBlueSky 15/09/2015

    @nexusz Most publishers these days tend to place an embargo on reviews - usually launch day. Activision setting one for a week after release would sure be sneaky.

    As for me, I'm really tempted to get back in to Destiny (traded in at level 23 after finishing the main story, never bought the expansions). But I'm in no rush, quite happy to dip back in when the initial frenzy has died down a bit so I'm kinda happy to sit back and wait for a review, hoping very much that it'll be from someone who's spent a good amount of time with the new content live, out in the wild, so I get a better idea of how much I'm going to get out of it.

  • SoulCalibur Lost Swords to shut down in November

  • SegaBlueSky 02/09/2015

    Personally I'd love a new SC game. Last one I really enjoyed was SC3 - had a huge, fantastic single player campaign and a great roster of characters. It just nailed the formula perfectly for me - me and my other half must have notched up hundreds of hours on it. Then we got SC4 on the 360 and it just kind of fizzled out from there - was abit bare content-wise compared to the third game. Reply +2
  • YouTube Gaming launches today

  • SegaBlueSky 26/08/2015

    What I do like it having the chance to watch developers give live presentations on their games and answering questions as they go along. It's a nice bit of interaction and genuinely makes me more excited about a game.

    I don't really enjoy watching streamers and big YT personalities/celebrities largely because I feel they appeal to the lowest common denominator. It's all a big convoluted popularity contest for the most part with people playing up to the camera and making money - a weird half-way between amateurs and professional media. I just don't click with it and I think that might be because I'm a little bit out of the demographic. Maybe I would have liked it when I was 15 and more into internet culture, Jackass and drinking crap booze, I dunno. But pushing 30 now I just feel like I'm wasting my time watching these videos.

  • Trine 3 dev says "future of the series is now in question"

  • SegaBlueSky 25/08/2015

    @zezyan Go work for a game company and see if your opinion changes on that.

    Anyways, I can see why people are disappointed but for the genuine criticisms are more to do with mechanics and gameplay features than anything else. Haven't played it myself yet (still on Trine 2) but have heard that there have been some gameplay changes that haven't gone down too well, which is fair criticism, definitely.

    As for gamers feeling 'entitled', well there's no right or wrong answer for that, I think. What I will agree on is that gamers are capable of some of the worst venom and misguided, skewed opinions I've seen in any industry. It doesn't go for everyone but there are a lot of people out there who need some perspective.

    Weirdly I meet so many gamers who seem to think that game developers are out to wring every penny from them and exploit their good nature while ruining the hobby they love so much. While there are of course some companies doing that, there are many more that are just desperately trying to find a way to make creating a games a viable business model for them. It's a very, very diverse place out there and you can't tar all game companies with the same brush.

    If this was EA selling the new Mass Effect and only delivering 5 hours of gameplay then yeah, I'd probably be pretty pissed off. But this is a small developer that probably doesn't fire out these games nearly as easily as we would imagine. For that reason I'm willing to give them a little bit of slack - that's not excusing them and denying flaws - but I'm not going to be sending them packed-down cakes of my own excrement, either.

    Ok so this turned out bigger than I anticipated. Anywho, people are entitled to whatever they want to think, right or wrong. Enjoy your day and try not to get bogged down too much by stressing out about a hobby.

  • Into the wild: inside The Witcher 3 launch

    Fascinating article, can't imagine how much work it took to put it together! Some really cool insights and stories here - sadly I had to read through fairly quickly as I'm at work but will be returning to have a more detailed read at lunchtime. Seriously though, this is a really, really great article. Feels like a long time since I've seen an article like this in print or online. Great stuff. Reply +10

    @MrTomFTW God I miss this machine. Hoping to try out the Transformers arcade machine on a trip to Japan later this year, which seems very much like an improved version of this.

    Love the look of this game too, like a super polished Virttua Racer/AfterBurner hybrid.

  • Red Ash wants another $247k for its anime spin-off

    Yeesh, Inafune needs to take a really hard look at what he's doing. I suppose this is the danger of getting a project funded before you thinking about the company making the project is going to be funded. I want to see him continue to make games, but not like this... Reply 0
  • Phantasy Star Online 2 coming to PS4

  • SegaBlueSky 17/08/2015

    Dammit Sega, if you don't release this over here I'm going to be really quite upset. Adored PSO episodes 1-3, played the fan-translated version of this on my laptop for a while but it struggled to run for a while so would really, really love to play it on PS4. Reply +2

  • The Street Fighter 5 beta isn't working

  • SegaBlueSky 28/07/2015

    Well, it's disappointing - but like so many have said, it's a beta. I don't think they even have to offer beta testers any kind of incentive to make up for it, but it's a nice gesture that they are, and to be honest I've still come out of this with more anticipation for SFV if anything. Looking forward to whatever form the next beta takes. Reply +1

  • Project Cars Wii U canned, "simply too much" for hardware

  • SegaBlueSky 21/07/2015

    Really not liking much that I hear from Slightly Mad Studios lately, which makes me wonder if they're more than slightly mad.

    As others have said I'm really not sure I'm comfortable with a company crowdfunding a game with the promise of a WiiU version and then scrapping it when they realize they're not up to the job - while asking for more money to fund the sequel to their massively successful first game. I don't like it and I think I'm done with them until they can convince me otherwise.

    Please tell me I'm wrong if I've twisted things here but that's how I see it at the moment...

  • Amazon Prime day deals detailed

  • SegaBlueSky 15/07/2015

    @kevinkdobdobson Alas, I'm on PS4. Not in a mega rush for it anyway - to be honest by the time I get round to playing it, pre-owned copies will probably be sitting around 15 or so. Reply 0
  • SegaBlueSky 15/07/2015

    Bought a backpack today on Prime that wasn't even eligible for free next day delivery, almost negating the discount. Bah.

    Games-wise, gonna keep an eye on the Dragon Age discount personally - might swing for that if it's under 20. Maybe. Otherwise as many have said this is a mighty disappointing sale - nowhere near as epic as Amazon were hyping it to be. Using my other half's free trial for the sale thankfully, otherwise I'd be one disappointed customer.

  • There's a new Shenmue 3 trailer starring Ryo and Shenhua

  • SegaBlueSky 15/07/2015

    One thing we really, really have to bear in mind is that other Kickstarters like Mighty No. 9 were just concept art, sketches and promises at this stage. Calling this a 'trailer' is likely a bit of hyperbole. I see this more as a proof of concept and a hint at the visual style, which will no doubt be refined as time goes on. What this trailer does for them is get the game back into the headlines as the KS comes to a close. Which is a sound strategy in theory but obviously they're really struggling for stuff to show - which is to be expected as the game isn't expected until at least the tail end of 2017.

    Admittedly, I'm so damn excited about continuing this story that I'd put up with Saturn-quality graphics, but hey.

  • Video: Can Shenmue 3 live up to its legend?

  • SegaBlueSky 15/07/2015

    Whatever the outcome, I'm just happy to give Shenmue 3 a fighting chance. Hope it's a massive success for Yu Suzuki - he's been out of the gaming limelight for far too long considering the classic franchises he's been involved with. This is a chance for us to collectively do what Sega couldn't (or wouldn't) as far as I'm concerned. Reply 0

  • Tributes pour in for Nintendo's Satoru Iwata

    Devastating news to wake up to this morning. Thoughts with his family and colleagues of course but such a sad day for every fan of video games. One of those very rare people in his kind of position that came across so earnest, enthusiastic and well - human. Such a sad loss. Beautiful to see so many touching tributes though - I'm sure he'd be happy to know that he was truly appreciated and admired in life. Reply +3

  • Is DriveClub finally up to speed?

  • SegaBlueSky 06/07/2015

    @CartBlanche Interesting video, thanks for the link! Not sure why you were negged though for sharing an alternative viewpoint... :/ Reply 0
  • SegaBlueSky 02/07/2015

    I really love Driveclub in many ways - the handling is fantastic for me, but then I love arcade racers. However I do think the AI leaves something to be desired and the replayability of single player is very limited unless you buy the season pass (which I fully intend to do at some point). The environments might not be the most spectacular but some of them are downright gorgeous. I own Project Cars as well and for me DC is the more visually appealing game, plus the photo mode is the best I've used in any game so far - it's amazing.

    Overall still very happy I stumped up 20 for the PS Plus upgrade edition. Admiteddly though I waited until the weather update, thereby avoiding much of the launch woes. Hope this is a franchise that continues to grow, as I don't much care for Project Cars at the moment and have no intention of going anywhere near the sequel.

  • Watch Uncharted 4's full 14-minute E3 gameplay demo

    Came in here fully expecting to watch the trailer and get very, very excited. Then remembered how much I enjoyed Uncharted 2 and 3 when I didn't know a damn thing about any of the big action scenes going into the game.

    Time for a media blackout on this for me then...I know I'm gonna buy it day one, I know I'm gonna love it, so now it's getting what I now tend to call the 'From Software treatment' until launch day!

    Was hoping for Guilty Gear but realistically didn't expect it. Still, a great lineup this month for me - all games I'm interested in and don't have yet! The months may vary slightly but personally I've still got a backlog of free stuff as long as my arm.

    Especially excited about Rocket League, and looking forward to giving Styx a try too!

  • The Taken King is the expansion Destiny has been waiting for

  • SegaBlueSky 01/07/2015

    For those who decide to jump in with this, I'm glad they'll enjoy it and it seems like a genuine improvement. But I'm done with Destiny - was never convinced by the value of the first expansions and this whole mess has done nothing to convince me otherwise. Big believer of voting with your wallet and mine is staying firmly in my back pocket.

    And for that matter - for those people unhappy with Eurogamer's (amount of) coverage - don't read it. I do because I'm still interested in the game and feel like voicing an opinion in the comments. But if you're sick of it, just ignore it like you would anything else that doesn't interest you. Clicks and views matter so if the numbers plummet, EG will know there's no interest and coverage will lessen. At the moment however Destiny is a hot topic with lots of interest (albeit negative), so whaddaya know - people write about it. Ignoring the game because it's had problems would arguably be MORE biased. However, if there are games or subjects you feel that EG are neglecting because of their coverage, tell them what you'd rather see. Be specific too. You might be surprised how much writers listen to a reasoned, articulate piece of feedback rather than a mindless rant when they read stuff like this.

    Having said all that, I don't want it to seem like I'm saying 'wah wah don't criticize EG'. I can totally see why people are irritated by their editorial stance towards the game and that's fair comment. It is jumping around all over the place a bit, but then so is the game itself I guess. Really want to love Destiny but I personally just can't trust Bungie from here on.
