  • Worms WMD announced for PC and Xbox One in 2016

  • SegaBlueSky 31/07/2015

    Would love a PS4 version, but either way I really, really like the look of this. The old look was getting very stale and this really seems brings the series up to date! Looks promising. Reply +1

    Cool. Still haven't spent enough time on the game to even get past the first village, but cool. Really need to get back into this! Reply 0
  • 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

    Makes me feel slightly better that I didn't get into the beta. I'm so petty. Reply +3
  • 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...

    Ridiculously happy about this, loved this game but lost my copy before I could finish it while I was moving house. Looking forward to seeing what the new Vanillaware game will be when it's revealed in September... Reply +1

  • Shenmue 3 breaks Kickstarter funding record

  • SegaBlueSky 17/07/2015

    Go Shenmue! As I've said a few times on various sites - Yu Suzuki is still one my all-time favourite game developers, and nothing would make me happier to see Shenmue 3 become a huge success and Suzuki back in the limelight. Stumped up for a physical PS4 copy and can't wait to see the game take shape! Reply +11

  • 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

  • SegaBlueSky 13/07/2015

    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

  • Capcom will sell wearable Mega Man helmets

  • 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

  • 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!

  • 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.

    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

  • 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

    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...
