  • Shenmue's english language voice actor reprises his role as Ryo

    So conflicted. Yay for nostalgia but...let's face it, he was crap. Oh well, there's always a Japanese option with subtitles...right!? Reply 0
  • Watch Uncharted 4's full 14-minute E3 gameplay demo

  • SegaBlueSky 02/07/2015

    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!

  • PlayStation Plus July Instant Game Collection revealed

  • SegaBlueSky 02/07/2015

    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!

  • Is DriveClub finally up to speed?

  • 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.

  • A Cities: Skylines expansion will be unveiled at Gamescom

  • SegaBlueSky 01/07/2015

    Love stories like this. Fantastic success for a small developer, wish them all the best in the future! Would love to give this a try but alas, not got enough spare cash to get a gaming PC right now. Reply +1
  • 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.

  • Nolan North: "I know they're doing The Last of Us 2"

  • SegaBlueSky 30/06/2015

    @telboy007 Haha, that one gave me a good chuckle.

    Not surprised by the info, but very - VERY happy. The first one was a special experience and while it was perfect on its own, I don't have the willpower to resist a sequel. A lot to live up to though!

  • Amy Hennig's EA Star Wars game like Uncharted and 1313, says Nolan North

  • SegaBlueSky 29/06/2015

    Can't believe Amy Hennig has gone this long without forming her own studio, if anyone deserves it, she does. She just seems to have a knack of creating games that I love to play and remember for years - can't wait to see what she'll do with Star Wars! Reply +9

  • Rise of the Tomb Raider brings back Lara's sense of adventure

    @Murton Last I remember on the subject, this interview made it pretty clear: http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2014-08-13-microsoft-confirms-rise-of-the-tomb-raider-xbox-exclusivity-deal-has-a-duration. Whether that's still true, who knows? Personally hope so, not intending to buy an Xbox One anytime soon and really wanna play this!

    Edit: Getting negged so I may be incorrect or supplying out of date info...anyone feel free to correct me but that's the last thing I remember reading about it!

  • DriveClub PlayStation Plus Edition launches with "caution" tomorrow

  • SegaBlueSky 24/06/2015

    Good that this is finally gonna be out there. Personally bought a copy for 20 back when the upgrade version was reduced and very happy with the game overall. Hoping for a reduction on the season pass price at some point though! Hope this isn't the end of the franchise either - the balance between arcade and sim sits just about right for me so definitely prefer it over Project Cars. Reply +12
  • Bungie: extra Destiny content for all platforms when Sony timed-exclusives launch on Xbox

  • SegaBlueSky 24/06/2015

    @tiddex Good to know the length is pretty decent but I do worry about it all being recycled content. Think I'll probably hold off until the price comes down then maybe jump in if I can get a few friends to do the same. Thanks for the info! Reply 0
  • SegaBlueSky 24/06/2015

    Traded in Destiny a while back, without ever trying out the expansions (think the second was about to launch at the time). Tempted by the new all-in-one retail edition but not sure. Can anyone tell me realistically how much this adds for a fairly casual player? Loved the 'feel' of Destiny, the soundtrack and the art style, but I was a bit disappointed by the length of the singleplayer campaign and rely on matchmaking for any multiplayer stuff.

    Also intrigued about Warframe, might have to check that out...

  • Yu Suzuki wants $10 million to make a truly open world Shenmue 3

  • SegaBlueSky 22/06/2015

    Thank you EG for actually doing some accurate reporting. After surfing around at sheer disbelief at some of your competitor websites over the weekend it's a refreshing change! Definitely helps in cementing EG as my preferred gaming site.

    Back on topic, really hope the Shenmue kickstarter continues to do well. $10m is going to be a BIG ask, and I get the feeling they'd reach it quicker if they'd promised an additional 16 hours of sailor-related quests. But fingers crossed regardless - would love to see a fully open-world Shenmue!

  • Shenmue 3 returns, but has it already been left behind?

  • SegaBlueSky 19/06/2015

    There was a similar (less well-written) article on Gizmodo the other day and I'm gonna say the same kinda thing I posted there. I can see why people would be skeptical of the game as a whole and even irritated by the Sony/Kickstarter blend of funding. To address that first - I'm thrilled that the game is getting made at all so I'm more than happy to shell out $29 for a digital pre-order. Wouldn't be surprised at all if it goes on sale for more than that on the PS Store when it finally lands, so what the hell.

    Shenmue 3 doesn't need to be a AAA blockbusting, Skyrim-slaying monumental return for Yu Suzuki. It's got more of an indie title mentality - bringing satisfaction and closure to a group of gamers quite willing to collectively shell out just shy of $3.3 million (at the time of writing) just to see the conclusion of a story.

    I'll freely admit that I don't care if this is a 10/10 game or not. I don't particularly care about it changing drastically to 'get with the times' either. I still love the originals so why would I want the final chapter to suddenly turn into something it's not? Shenmue was (and is) its own game, sitting in a space that is pretty unique in gaming history. Last time I checked, individualism was something to be celebrated. We are living in a golden age of games at the moment that blends the retro with the modern. Just look at the insane diversity we now have across downloadable and retail titles, independent and big name publishers. It's amazing that we can have the simplest of games with ZX Spectrum-level graphics on the same stage as games like Uncharted. Shenmue 3 may well be rubbish. Who knows? But damning it at this stage is in my opinion a bit foolish and a bit dismissive of how wide-ranging the games industry is these days. I know my username suggests a level of Sega fanboyism bordering on the mentally unstable but I do try and be neutral in all things and genuinely believe there's a place for almost any type of game.

    Also, I don't think we should be going by the 'demo' video as an indicator of the final game...

  • SegaBlueSky 16/06/2015

    To be honest I'm not worried about what I'll be playing in 2015. I'm more worried I'm not gonna get all the stuff I've already got cleared out of the way in time for 2016! Totally get why some people would be irritated of course, but for me it's a non-issue as I already have so much to get through. At the moment the list stands at...

    Bloodborne (on 2nd and 3rd playthroughs)
    FFXIV (huge expansion coming out imminently)
    Last of Us (played before but started a new game so wanna do that)
    Yakuza (forget which one, got it on PS Plus)
    Okami
    Far Cry 3
    Final Fantasy XIII and XIII-2
    Demon's Souls
    Ico/SotC HD (played the originals but snapped up a bargain not long ago)
    Witcher III
    MGS Ground Zeroes
    Outlast

    And that's just off the top of my head...I know there's also countless indies I haven't touched as well, along with Steam games I've bought recklessly in the sales and probably some other retail games I've forgotten. And that's before I buy anything extra - these are all sitting on my PS3 & 4 already. I adore my games but I don't get as much time as I'd like to play, and then there's the countless TV box-sets and movies I haven't caught up on - Mad Men, Penny Dreadful, True Detective...I've easily got enough entertainment to see me through the rest of the year so I'm just trying to clear the decks as much as I can before a pretty kickass 2016 rolls around!

    Massively excited to be a PS4 owner after this E3. Uncharted looks fantastic - will keep myself content with the collection while I wait (never payed the first game so that's good enough reason to go through the trilogy again IMO).

    In all fairness, MS had one of their best conferences in recent years but damn, Sony just hit me right in my inner fanboy. Breathless stuff for a good while there.

  • Nintendo heads into E3 with its hands tied

  • SegaBlueSky 12/06/2015

    @MccyMcFlinn Makes sense really and yeah, I'm not complaining about the lifetime of the Wii U exactly as it has been around a good few years, just that it finally seems to be hitting the kind of stride I would have hoped for a few years ago. Regardless I'd like to pick one up eventually, just the wrong time for me right now and took a while for it to get going back when I would have made the jump.

    Still wonder whether Nintendo will be a bit crafty and mention NX even when they said they wouldn't...who knows! Either way will be watching with interest.

    Argh...really want a 3DS as well. I seriously don't have enough time for games these days.
    Reply +3
  • SegaBlueSky 12/06/2015

    Can't help but feel like they're cutting the Wii U off just as it's finally starting to click. Finally started to see some games I really want to play but no chance I could buy one until next year so think sadly I'm just gonna have to accept I've missed out a bit this time around. Hoping for a strong E3 for Ninty though - I tend to dip in and out of love with them but always want to see them do well. Reply +3
  • Could this be the last year 'For the Players' is enough for PlayStation?

  • SegaBlueSky 12/06/2015

    I do think Sony needs to do more than just have a bit of a 'me too' E3 with multi-platform titles dominating, but for me personally I certainly don't need many more games turning up by Christmas. I'm still playing Bloodborne, FFXIV and Driveclub at least one or two days a week each, trying desperately to get started on the Witcher III, and sitting on a pile of indie gems and PS Plus titles across PS4 and PS3 that stretches at least into the double digits. At this rate, with No Man's Sky, Batman and Heavensward on the way I'm probably good until at least February! So if I can start 2016 with a relatively clean slate looking forward to a new Uncharted, Tomb Raider making its way over, Dark Souls 3 and a couple others, I'll be a very happy chap indeed. Reply +4
