  • Sony's E3 conference: an artful blend of nostalgia and big business

    @icematt12 Would be nice, but with the streaming subscription service on the way I wouldn't bet on it, sadly. Reply 0
  • 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!

  • Keep your eyes peeled for planet Sugas-Uomi when No Man's Sky comes out

  • SegaBlueSky 16/06/2015

    @Centrale1 Ah, now that you mention it I do remember him saying during the demo that you were aiming for the galactic core. Interesting! Even if it doesn't re-invent the wheel I'm definitely still looking forward to this. Reply 0
  • SegaBlueSky 16/06/2015

    I can see why people would be losing enthusiasm for this, but I still can't wait to be utterly absorbed by the art style, music etc. What I haven't seen yet is where you'll find your sense of progression and achievement - what are we working towards? Reply +3
  • Microsoft introduces new modular Xbox Elite wireless controller

  • SegaBlueSky 16/06/2015

    Oof, that is a blood expensive controller. But it also looks pretty damn impressive and to be fair, I've seen plenty of PC gamers shell out substantial cash for the highest quality peripherals. As an optional extra, why the heck not? I doubt I'd buy one but definitely seems cool. Reply +4
  • Microsoft woos the 360 crowd at E3 2015

  • SegaBlueSky 16/06/2015

    Best E3 showing I've seen for a while from MS. I'm a PS4 owner and don't think I'll be switching or adding to that at least for this year, but a really good conference nonetheless. Hololens is incredible! Would love to have a go of that. Reply +2
  • Final Fantasy 7 Remake is real

  • SegaBlueSky 16/06/2015

    HD dolphin-riding, cross-dressing and post-death-grief-snowboarding coming to your PS4!

    In seriousness I wouldn't be surprised if some of the more comedic sections of the game are re-imagined/cut, but still - SO damn excited! Hooboy.

  • Uncharted 4: A Thief's End gets new gameplay trailer

  • SegaBlueSky 16/06/2015

    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.

    Even though I'm holding out for the PS4 version, I'm hoping to see a bit more from the new Tomb Raider...though I guess that could turn up in the Squeenix conference instead maybe? Reply 0
  • 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.

  • 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

  • PSN sales offer major discounts for the next two weeks

  • SegaBlueSky 11/06/2015

    Dammit, so many good games - not nearly enough time to play them all. Gonna have to pick up a couple of these though I think. Tempted by White Night but just know it's gonna end up as a PS Plus title the minute I buy the damn thing. Tropico 5 also very tempting - enjoying the demo at the moment. Reply 0

  • Dark Souls 3 is real, aiming for an "early 2016" release

  • SegaBlueSky 10/06/2015

    Beginning to think I need to boycott games sites from May until the actual day of E3...feeling like there's not gonna be any decent surprises now!

    But still, massively excited for this...DS2 was good rather than incredible but even if it's the same team I'm sure I'll buy it and enjoy. Fingers crossed for Miyazaki involvement though and looking forward to a trailer reveal at E3.

  • Mega Man is getting a new animated TV series

  • SegaBlueSky 03/06/2015

    @Travis56 My first Mega Man experience was X4 on the Saturn - which was a brilliant game and of course had those awesome anime cinematics in between missions. Like you say a much darker tone, absolutely loved it at the time!

    It's nice to see that there's SOME interest in Mega Man over at Capcom, but I'll just look forward to Mighty No. 9 instead for now.

  • The Legend of Zelda Wii U will not launch in 2015

  • SegaBlueSky 28/03/2015

    Wow, that's a big disappointment and a big promise to make too. If it was any other developer (like, oh, I dunno, Peter Molyneux) I'd be very sceptical, but in this instance I actually expect results. Shame it won't be at e3 though, could mean a bit of a dull showing from Nintendo. Reply +2

  • Is Bloodborne the best game ever, or just the second best?

  • SegaBlueSky 24/03/2015

  • With the announcement of the NX, Nintendo admits defeat with the Wii U

  • SegaBlueSky 19/03/2015

    Admittedly I don't own a Wii U, but this news makes me very sad. Yes it's an opinion/speculation piece but it still highlights the struggles that a good console has unfortunately had to endure. Had been very tempted to pick one up in recent months - and still might. really hope that whatever Nintendo comes up with next is backwards compatible at the very least... Reply +1
  • Ori and the Blind Forest review

  • SegaBlueSky 13/03/2015

    Wow, this looks stunning - would be all over this if I had an Xbox. Funnily enough I was an Xbox owner some years ago lamenting that I couldn't play Okami, and now it's the complete reverse! If I ever make the jump though this will be a day one purchase. Reply +3
  • Project Cars delayed again

  • SegaBlueSky 12/03/2015

    @Luz1978 bear in mind that E3 isn't too far away. Big budget games will undoubtedly be coming, but little things like this get revealed as and when because of the nature of what they are. I could be wrong of course, but that's how I see it! Reply +1

  • In Dark Souls 2 undead players can still be invaded

  • SegaBlueSky 29/01/2014

    I have to admit that the first I played through Dark Souls I probably spent the majority of my time offline, just because I didn't really understand the mechanics and how to build a character that could compete with other players. When I got to NG+ with my first character though and started getting invaded I got pretty fed up of getting my arse kicked every five minutes and thought to myself 'there's gotta be something I'm missing'.

    So I started my second playthrough. This time I figured 'well y'know what, I really liked the katana movesets', and so put all my focus into raising my dex so that the Uchigatana would hopefully do more damage. The game completely clicked from there, and I eventually found myself with six or seven characters going, each with different builds and strengths, just to see what they were like. I made sure to stay human at all times to keep practising, and eventually fell in love with playing in the Darkmoon Covenant, hunting down players who had 'sinned' by commiting evil acts in game or grieving other players. It was the most fun I've ever had in a game, and I just can't imagine playing DS2 offline as a result.

    So I can totally understand first timers wanting to have a bit of peace, but once you get into it, playing online is so much more satisfying (IMO), pushing you to explore every possibility the game has to offer.

    Absolutely can't wait. Bring it on!

  • Smash Bros. Wii U includes gorgeous Mario Galaxy HD level

  • SegaBlueSky 16/11/2013

    Stunning! But as for the first comment by Simsini, well, yeah? I would certainly hope that after this much time the Wii U's games are a step ahead of new console launches. It should be expected! But the thing is, despite the odd glorious exception, for the most part the PS4 and XB1 will be on an even (and pretty soon, greater) playing field, and Ninty might have a tough time keeping up.

    I'm trying to picture in my mind when the next Nintendo home console will come around...hoping it's not too soon and the Wii U can do some catching up. Maybe halfway through the next cycle, say 3-5 years? Hmm...it's a tough one.

  • Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag review

  • SegaBlueSky 05/11/2013

    Really hoping this will be the series' return to form. Absolutely loved AC2, but for me AC3 fell into the same trap as the first, never quite living up to the potential with a fairly dull story that didn't really make you feel like an assassin at all, more like a freedom fighter. WHich makes sense in that context I suppose, but I just wasn't feeling it. Reply 0
  • Valve shows off a Steam Machine prototype

  • SegaBlueSky 05/11/2013

    I'm still a bit undecided about the whole concept, really. I like Steam and I like the controller purely on a conceptual level, but I'm just not sure whether I'd get this over a regular PC as even when I have had a gaming PC in the past, I've always used it more for other stuff than gaming - always. And when it comes to the other stuff, Windows is generally the platform I prefer using. So at the moment I think I'm sitting on the 'it's great, but it's not for me' fence. Reply 0
  • Games of the Generation: Dark Souls

  • SegaBlueSky 01/11/2013

    Like many I'd say this is one of my favourite games of all time, never mind this generation. I also started on Xbox but have recently started going through the game again after swapping it for a PS3. A question though - is Demons Souls still worth picking up nowadays? I seem to remember reading that the servers are offline now? And if so, is the solo experience worth diving into? Mind you, I have no idea when I'll have time to play it, seeing as I've just started five new characters on DS and tend to spend 60+ hours on each before moving on @_@ Reply +1
  • Microsoft hires Jonathan Ross to work on Xbox

  • SegaBlueSky 29/10/2013

    I actually quite like Jonathan Ross, but still...I'd much rather see MS making big announcements about new developers and embracing the new indie game culture that seems to be well in place on the PS4. Not saying it's necessarily a bad thing (after all we don't know what this partnership will actually result in), but at a time when I'm watching each company like a hawk to see which console I prefer in the new year...it's not the kind of announcement that actually makes any difference to me.

  • The strongest next-gen line-up from the unlikeliest source

  • SegaBlueSky 26/10/2013

    Really well written article with some very good points, but I just can't bring myself to buy a Wii U - there just isn't enough that feels fresh and different for me to warrant a purchase. Super Mario 3D World looks fantastic, but it's crippled for me by only featuring local co-op. None of my friends (that live in easy reach) are keen gamers.

    Apart from that, I've only seen a handful of games that have me interested, including Sonic Lost World and the Wonderful 101. Nintendo's first party offerings are always solid, but I just don't have a reason to play yet another Mario Kart or Smash Bros at the moment. And when one of the single best games on the console is a remastered version of a game that was out two generations prior, that gives me a really bad signal that I personally just cannot get on with.

    Conversely, if I buy a PS4 I know there are a bunch of indie games I'm really excited to play, a whole load of good horror games (which I have sorely missed this gen), a great version of my current MMO of choice, along with all the other exclusives and big titles from the biggest third party studios that just won't work as well on the Wii U. Then there's the online and multimedia functionality and the huge value that PS plus provides (currently have at least 7 amazing games on my PS3 for free that I STILL haven't had time to play).

    Sorry Ninty, I got seriously burned by the Wii, and I just don't see enough there with the Wii U to make up for it. I'm glad to see that there are people out there loving the system, but with only so much money and time available in my life I know where I'm going to spend my money.

    @Seketh How about offering a counter argument then? The 'truth' isn't much good without anything to back it up. See science for reference.

    I'm no fanboy and I'd be happy to consider a different opinion. I've been an Xbox fan since the original first appeared on the scene, but in my eyes MS have made critical errors and controversial choices with the XB One that have completely turned me off the console.
