    Lol. Blacksad will be very happy to see this game, as will I. One to watch & something new.

    Its good to see some anthropomorphic adventures making a comeback.

    Was going to post a Blacksad image here, but EGs upload image thing is complicated. Can anyone help?

  • Star Wars Battlefront 2 reveals first footage of space battles

    Well, its not a long way off, so you'll be able to board the ships, par secs soon. Much has been learned by Dice from the previous game finding its legs & E3 sold it for me, anyway. Reply 0

    Looks awesome & I like you say, I expect that's what these space battles will be like, Rogue Squadron style plus multiplayer. Hard to go wrong with that.

  • Xbox One X to launch with special day one “Project Scorpio” Edition - report

  • SpaceMonkey77 19/08/2017

    Will try to watch with eagerness. Trouble is that without games it'll take time to build its following. Many may upgrade in November for trade ins. Others will be about PS4, while VR thrives on it. No VR on XBX will perhaps be a crutch but 4K might be enough to attract new gamers.

    Hope in 2018 & going forwards, that MS can get more games in the pipe with staying power to be awesome.

    Still loved much & the game that showed how great BF could be. Still want BF to return to this A-Team formula because it works so much better. Everyone loves the A-Team

    Bring back Sweetwater & co, They rock & they must be bored on the beaches by now. Or maybe not.

    When on topic here, I'm on topic as I know much of games & enjoy chatting about them, in good times or bad. I can't play this one either but its my kind of game. Thanks.

    Watched review of this one & it looks fun. Just very surprised on no co-op out of the box.

    Perhaps they want to wait on the multiplayer, NMS style, just to gauge if there's interest for enough of it. I think some devs might be considering cutting back on multiplayer, if there's not enough interest & save costs. I could be wrong. Reply -5

  • Uncharted: The Lost Legacy review

  • SpaceMonkey77 17/08/2017

    Great game addition to what Sony does well. No chance of going wrong with this one. more Uncharted & creaky ancient tomb & temple diving & climbing without protective breathing apparatus from the aging toxins, fungi, dust & mold within.

    Well done, Naughty Dog...but just a parting thought. With the Uncharted & Tomb Raider series, use of mobile breathing apparatus would be good, as air in tombs can be poisonous, as those in the 1920's found out to their untimely doom in Egypt, even after leaving. Something to think about, just for creative reference, going ahead.

  • Crackdown 3 delayed until spring 2018

  • SpaceMonkey77 17/08/2017

    It might be held for tweaks, but I think gamers will have enough to occupy Christmas anyway. XBX launch will still have ACO, Destiny 2 & CoD WW2 to draw upon. Multiplayer on those should keep many happy, let alone indie games along side & Switch exclusives. Reply +2
  • Mass Effect: Andromeda is heavily discounted on Xbox One and PC

  • SpaceMonkey77 16/08/2017

    Bargain buy for many people, despite any issues it may have had. Stand by for an update after buying, perhaps. Deluxe or standard.


    There's a need for having a game jam for a new games to breed & raise in your stable, perhaps EA.

  • Sonic Mania is the sequel we've waited 23 years for

  • SpaceMonkey77 16/08/2017

    Sega are a bit of a crazy run of awesome of late. Persona 5 was the talk of the town. Now a smash bang with Sonic, after a few hit & miss tries.

    I think that Sega or Christian should perhaps do a little competition search for more enthusiast or mod talent, because I think out there somewhere, there might be cool fans that want a shot at remixing something from their stable.

    I'd like to see what else could be done with Shining Force, please.

    This could be awesome. The world is dripping with a good game design that's not been tried in these types of games before & since. I like the real world with fantasy options in it vibe a lot.

    Will be looking forward to see how this turns out. Good call, Mr Depp & co.

  • More than a year on, Take-Two still fighting NBA 2K tattoo lawsuit

  • SpaceMonkey77 14/08/2017

    Take Two, its best that you guys to do one of two things here.

    1.Settle with this person/tattoo company for a small sum over their region alone.

    2.Offer them some work via the GTA or NBA series via mod tattoos to add to characters.

    Agree that the likeness of a real person is just as the T2 reflecting those people in a game & not to jack a tattoo.

  • Lovefilm by Post to be closed forever on Halloween

    Yeah, sorry my bad. I once rented a few games from them on 360 on a trial. Service & speed was good & the games fun. Sad to see them go but Amazon's gain. Moving forwards.

  • SpaceMonkey77 15/08/2017

    I recall once when I thought Love Film was actually Netflix, due to the similar logo back then. I'm surprised Love Film have made it this far, mind. Good luck to them for the competition is more streaming than dvd posting.

    Perhaps they consider moving into games rental, because no one is doing that physically & the absence of demos is make it easier for them to do. No reason why such couldn't work out for them if Netflix, Amazon, Hulu & Crunchyroll are eating up streaming.


    Here's an idea, if you can't beat them, join them & sell to someone else if you really want out. Its hard for them being U.K based only & streaming is a global thing, not regional. Good luck.

  • Sonic Mania review

  • SpaceMonkey77 14/08/2017

    Christian Whitehead is one of Sega's greatest discoveries from the mod scene, showing that sometimes talent hides in the weirdest places. His Sonic CD iOS adaption was great too & him & his team don't disappoint.

    EG: Have you guys done an interview with Chris yet?

    I wonder how much other talent hides out there, as I'm sure we'd love Sega to do something with Streets of Rage Remake too.

  • SpaceMonkey77 14/08/2017

    Great news! Now if Sega can get Sonic right in 3D too, it might possibly be able to match the SMB series once more, which would be cool to see.

    Well done, Sega.

  • The big Cliff Bleszinski interview

  • SpaceMonkey77 12/08/2017

    Since the days of Jazz Jack, he's done well for himself & I can't fault his drive & creative ambition to be more. Gears changed the game in a lot of cool ways & despite its success its good to see him moving on with his life.

    Some like to give him grief, but for some people sad, they dislike to see anyone doing well & must seek to cut down. Frankly I like a person with some personality to them, so they stand out from the crowd a bit. Many devs may be creatively great, but may lack the positive mindset & persona to show they enjoy what they do, as well as talk deeply about it. I don't expect everyone to be that way, but it helps gamers warm to those, who spend countless hour creating awesome games. Lawbreakers I'll keep an eye out for & hope it can carve its own despite Overwatch doing well. Good luck with it & more.

    With those additions even I'm now more excited to play it. Well done, Hello! NMS has huge potential yet.

  • Nintendo hit by lawsuit over Switch design

  • SpaceMonkey77 11/08/2017

    This stuff is nonsense really. For game pad control options, there's only so much difference in form factor one can take. Doubt it'll go anywhere as most controllers a dual analogue now after years. An iPad controller might be better off as a separate blue tooth unit, like Nvidia's Razer pad.

    Moving along...Nintendo could reply back with 'yeah, analogue controller nubs we pioneered & have been making since N64, which Wikipad enjoys the use & benefits of'.

  • Warframe in 2017 is a shooter at the crossroads between art and business

  • SpaceMonkey77 11/08/2017

    @UnsightlyWalrus

    Alright, thanks for the knowledge update. Love learning new things. Its good that such is possible now for smaller devs to realize their creative visions. The open world update to Warframe looks like a good move, before Anthem drops in 2018.

  • SpaceMonkey77 11/08/2017

    Its great to see what Warframe has become, for the previous awesome game that was Dark Sector, which it evolved from. I wonder or wish it had more story, relating back to that game, which I still love. Dark Sector was okay for when it was released back then.

    Warframe is on the cards to play, but shall only check it out, once I have a new gaming rig or latest games console. Great to see it evolving & doing its own unique space ninja thing next to Overwatch, CoD, PUBG & co. Well done Digital Extremes.

    I only comment on games here. I'm in no state to buy new ones right now or for the forseeable future. 20 a year is alright price wise, but I'm between jobs with no income or savings, while I've tried to fix that. I won't go into my situation further than that as I don't burden you with my problems.

  • "Fundamental changes" coming to Xbox achievements

  • SpaceMonkey77 10/08/2017

    What might also be happening is achievements via updates. Finish the original 1000 & more can be added to further play of a game.

    Achievos via OXB games would be another bonus.
    Reply 0
  • SpaceMonkey77 10/08/2017

    I think the way forward for achievements would be for your drive to record the few seconds of you gaining them (say 10 secs), so you can go through your gallery of awesome. Might require some adjustments, then perhaps upload them to MS servers for other gamers to view. That would be interesting & not impossible.

    New features would help too. Well done. Earning achievements via different format would also be good.


    I do also hope Nintendo get in on the achievement game, because handhelds so far have skipped such, coolness.

  • Let kids play video games to "save the country", UK spy chief says

    Your sarcasm has earned today's sarcasm badge! Congratulations! Yay!

    Learning online is overall a good thing, for some places only do so much range in subjects to learn. Learning from distance is also a thing long before the inter-tubes. Can certainly agree on monitoring kids time online, even learning with them which can be cool too.

    Wow! Wish my mom would love to know all the crazy space science stuff I've learned, all on my own online. Good luck if you got that.

    Well in his mind it might all be the same thing, tech he doesn't perhaps understand as much, while I don't expect everyone to be experts.

    Making games for a living isn't so impossible a dream nowadays. Engineering & comp science are math/logic based & not for everyone.
    Reply -2
  • SpaceMonkey77 10/08/2017

    Tis true that more engineering & tech talent is needed in the U.K, but while its good to encourage gaming, more needs to be done from high school.

    Learning to code in some schools is a good start but indeed if such isn't embraced on a wider school level, young folk can learn via books & online.Sadly there are so many olds in some high places, that stall the wheels of progress & by the time there's no talent left, it'll be too late.

    There either wont be many positions & opportunities open in the U.K, pushing their skills abroad or some might give up entirely, the worst tragedy of good untapped talent. Good luck out there anyway. If the U.K wants more Rockstar multi-million game selling talent, such won't grow without nurturing. Even e-sports offer options now, which is cool in its own way.

    I wish my gen got as much encouragement about games, in the days of sneaking into the school library to install Doom II for break time fun (I won't say who...psss) or playing Gameboy under tables of the most boring lessons.

  • One year on, is No Man's Sky the game it should have been?

  • SpaceMonkey77 09/08/2017

    @ziggy_played_guitar

    I see & understand these vids but they are easy to be caught out by. Such is history not worthy of griping over IMO & I hope we can look to fixing this game to be better. If not media trained its easy to get caught out. I still hope Hello can fix this game, but yeah Workshop can help a lot.

    Don't get me wrong. No one likes buying bad games, but unlike a Duke Nukem or A:C-Marines, this game is fixable.

    Well, NMS is raising this intelligent conversation, I applaud you guys for giving reasoned views differing. Good discussion is why this site has been great over the years. Thanks Foxtrot & co.


    While I haven't played NMS, I watched a friend play it at release. I found it interesting to watch him mine, for he was a big Minecraft fan, but beyond that mining, crafting & flying your ship from place to planet, I was confused a bit as I expected a little more, in a post Mass Effect trilogy world. I expected more excitement of the various possibles that can happen in space like space pirates, more alien races, trading & scavenging & a greater narrative to put your mind onto more. Perhaps more was planned & didn't end up in the gold cut, due to their smaller team & a set release date that Sony wanted to bank heavily on.


    Or maybe Hello aimed to make NMS, a big single player game with lots of mining to do, much like Minecraft but in space, instead. if the latter is true as Minecraft is crazy popular, perhaps that's where the expectations may have blown many gamers off course who wanted more fps combat, space battles against enemy fools, playing a Han Solo type rogue trader person & so on. Perhaps doing all of that, & going a more Star Citizen route was too much so cuts were made, until perhaps they can add them in later.


    As said, if Hello wanted more help with this game, going via the Workshop route would be ideal. Mod devs would probably love to create aliens to inhabit this world & make it more fun. Perhaps Hello might be scared to do this, but like GTA, PUBG & that veteran Team Fortress 2, such would help this game be so much more, especially if Hello don't plan on much updates ahead. One thing is sure, if changes aren't made, the likes of Star Citizen & Anthem are going to make the next two years very difficult for NMS. I hope Hello seriously consider the Steam Workshop option to help boost it to be more & hopefully all it can be, before upcoming Destiny 2, Star Citizen & Anthem blast off to target & raid the NMS star ship.

    You could be right. Its not like elite that is a classic game rebooted & its still very ambitious. I haven't played it but would still like to do so. While its very much single player a Dark Souls like multiplayer aspect with an on/off mode would really shake its galaxy up a bit. Something for Hello to think about.

    Thanks for your post it been more enlightening than most here.

  • Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice review

  • SpaceMonkey77 09/08/2017

    I think that what NT have done with this game is actually good. Sure, its shorter than most games, but there's probably some DLC planned somewhere along, that might add more to it. All in all, they've done well but I know with some they can't seem to catch a break with some gamers & after DMC, that's sad.

    Reviews are positive & they should pat themselves on the back. There are indie games that come out with similar length or more in hours & few say much about them, a lot of them worse or not as polished & cared for. On top of that if you don't want it, then perhaps just don't buy it for you have that fantastic choice in your life. I feel this game is EG essential in a way the Bioshock series, Gone Home or Spec Ops The Line are essential games to play for all gamers. A panthoen of games that bring something more to the table & that overall show how great the medium of games can be in the right talented hands & minds. Think about that.

    For those who like it, enjoy. Its good NT also got this out before the crazy rush to Christmas begins & before we are flanked by CoD, ACO & more so XBX launch window in November.

    If NT want to add anything to this game, I'd suggest a combat mode horde/arena mode, because I love the mo-cap combat animation of this game. Fight waves for the win or something. Good luck.
