    Pokemon is a product of the 90's don't forget. In its time, there's a lot of good and nonsense story in it, that WoW would be proud of it, while not as deep mind. The eating of Pokemon is never mentioned openly anywhere else than the comics as a result, I think.

    Have fun with it, hope it does well, while not my vibe.

    There's some dose of sarcasm in this McD's promotion. In the Pokemon mythos, its known that despite Pokemon being caught for training and battling, some were also caught and used as food, as we do cows, fish etc. This lore only featured in the manga as far as I know.

    Whether they serve burgers made of the carcass of Pokemon caught to eat, will remain a mystery. Take heart, as you tuck into that burger that smiles cutely at you, though. Lol. As for fast food, it should be a treat, not the everyday, unless you want to super size your potential sickness. The weird flip side and perfection is that this AR game, makes you get up and outside, burning off those calories. Everyone wins.

    Enjoy, and I see more Nintendo stock bumps coming up real soon. Perhaps Nintendo should consider throwing a pedometer into the game, too.

  • Square Enix is making the world's first Apple Watch-exclusive RPG

  • SpaceMonkey77 21/07/2016

    These watch games need a break out hit, and while they aren't ideal (i'm not lucky enough or of means to have such luxury items), its an interesting field for Square to try and tap. Best of luck to them.

    Just had an idea. I happen to think since Pokemon Go is such huge hit, that Front Mission, might be ideal for an AR style game. Don't expect everything to be emulated, mind. (I'd settle for a tps FM action game from Io's talented hands, as I think they could do the series well in that form)

    Good to see Square experimenting with smaller games like this, and I hope they'll continue to do so. The price might be a bit steep for what it is, but look out for Steam sales.

    Nice one, Square. These old school joints are dwindling, but I can see why as progress marches forward.

    Under the influence of alcohol or drugs, makes it trickier, while he was in the wrong.

    Take it from one who sleeps a lot, and gets boners during such. Still not an invite to jump on me (while resting, boner or not) or anyone else for that matter.

    Sucks for him, but best to always seek 'hamma time', while awake of mind and sober.

  • Fraudsters force RimWorld dev to stop giving out Steam keys

  • SpaceMonkey77 18/07/2016

    With problems like this, comes the possibility for someone to step in with solutions. If Valve can't do it themselves, perhaps they should seek a small dev company to fix it. I don't think its impossible. Maybe Valve should throw a better Steam code sale idea, out to Steam fans to brainstorm.

    Some are right that small devs, perhaps like other small companies might not be able to afford the fees for some sales. This is why many small business don't allow credit card transaction unless above Ł/$5 or so, or don't bother with American Express as an payment option.

  • SpaceMonkey77 18/07/2016

    What do they do about this one?

    Maybe Steam keys might need a two-three step access feature, to ensure that the dev/sellers gets their cut or something. Not sure beyond that.

    Best of luck, fixing this mess.

  • Looks like the original Dead Rising is headed to PS4

  • SpaceMonkey77 18/07/2016

    @SG79

    DR2 was a different take, with the infected child and cure hypo, giving urgency, but its NPC were a problem, as you felt like you were baby sitting.

    I too like the pureness of DR, just Frank and plenty zombs.

  • SpaceMonkey77 18/07/2016

    The original is a classic, all except for its dumb save system and perhaps b-movie plot. Worth a shot to buy and play.

    This series is becoming bloated like a zombie's saggy bowel, that State of Decay is out pacing it, and could be the very reason MS scaled back on DR exclusivity. A win for more zombie gamers.

  • Has Steam Greenlight had its day?

  • SpaceMonkey77 16/07/2016

    What it needs is a redesigned interface. It would sort out all of the clutter.

    Take a look at how itch.io have their site set out. A simple grid that shows all games equally with screen shots. Look at which you like best with minimum fuss.

    Emulate and things will improve in finding lesser gems out there. Make it happen, Steam.

  • Paedophiles, lures and susceptible children: the UK tabloids take on Pokémon Go

    @Zarbrough-archive

    Just be glad that there's no Poly animations, that make you freak out, roll eyes and puke everywhere.

    I'm sure Nintendo and others will give some guidelines of use and safety. How to use AR after this though, is anyone's guess. I expect that other devs will be looking into emulating this AR, real soon.

    How would AR work with other games, without it becoming annoying, fetch quest work?

  • SpaceMonkey77 12/07/2016

    Not really surprised. Better to push the fear train, than actually say anything positive about games and tech, that some won't take the few minutes to understand or perhaps enjoy, further reinforcing the bad 'video games aren't for everyone' spiel. With such ludditism around, that's why I rarely read trees, anymore.

    Any find places, could easily be tagged with a finder score system by Nintendo, to make sure each Pokemon is safe to find and through Pokeballs at. Be sure to go Poke-finders in groups or by daylight, safely. If Pokemon are found in locations such as on private property, be sure to use such a score system there too, as you'd not want to upset others with your snooping around their places, and owners could be given something small for their time.

    Problem solved, minimum fuss.

  • Splash Damage bought by Chinese chicken meat company Leyou

  • SpaceMonkey77 11/07/2016

    I missed the part when they picked up Digital Extremes, which is doing okay out of Warframe. Splash Damage are talented, but have gone off the radar a bit since Brink didn't have as much impact.

    If they leave the devs to make their games and get out of the way, then that's a good deal for those devs involved.

    As for the business stuff in China, I don't know much about it, but I get why some might seek to expand elsewhere, if things become potentially hostile with the PRC. Perhaps doing so, they'll learn better ways of doing business, and maybe get out of the poultry game.

  • Watch: Aoife swats some Locusts for the first time in Gears of War

  • SpaceMonkey77 11/07/2016

    @Pierre2k

    You hit some good points. Gears also added the cool feature of active reload, that unfortunately few have emulated, for it is a true fact that guns can jam up, if you aren't careful.

    Even though its multiplayer might be frowned on by some, it also changed the game, because of its tps game play, where many multi-play games, had been heavily fps focused, before that, which in turn forced all players to adjust to its new rules of play.

  • Pokémon Go is a phenomenon that's pushing people together

  • SpaceMonkey77 10/07/2016

    Well, if Nintendo are open to feedback, they'd tweak its battle system over time to be better. Keep it going and don't mess it up. Best of luck.

    I have to say, the idea of possible gym vs gym battles, could really take this app to the next level. Early days I guess.

  • SpaceMonkey77 10/07/2016

    As I've always said, that Nintendo game magic doesn't need a dedicated console to shine, as many have long thought. Its heart warming to hear these tales too, once again proving that mobile has much reach than any console, and could yet do more for them. All you need do is try sometimes something different.

    And yes, those shareholders will be very happy. I'm not a Pokemon fan, but may check it out, while asking one other question. Once caught can you also battle with them, or is it just a finders keepers?

  • Epic boss is thrilled at the prospect of PlayStation Neo and Xbox Scorpio

  • SpaceMonkey77 07/07/2016

    I expect it'll do well for both of them for a while. But one day, it might become a problem. If some gamers aren't PC gamers, or convinced to move that way, sooner or later they will. Once VR is well established, there will be no only be so much reason remaining for consoles to exist, beyond ease of use. How will such be pushed, a decade or two from now?

    As consoles become more like mini PCs, perhaps that might also be the trick. MS on PCs after last time, might be the kind of thing that after last time, will be hard to accept. Many gamers haven't forgiven them for bailing out on PC with GFWL, last time, leaving many games that supported it hanging, in the wind.

  • Evolve goes free-to-play, devs discuss "DLC s***storm"

  • SpaceMonkey77 07/07/2016

    It, like others, is feeling the tidal effects of being caught in the Overwatch impact popularity crater. Like a tumbling lead fridge, every similar game is trying to find its feet again.

    Evolve, having gone for a more L4D style of play and character juggle, its going to find matching Overwatch very hard, but I guess they have to try.

    Its a weird one, but I hope for their sake it does well, so they can relax their previous mobile stance. Then perhaps one day in the space future, they might consider getting their games onto PC, where they should have also been ages ago.

    When Fire Emblem lands, (like, a more normal game) someone give me a call or message.

    Tis a pity this is going on, but overall, I think this boils down to the U.S ongoing problem with online gambling, because they are all about heavily regulated and controlled offline gambling and big casinos.

    If you know the tale of how the lottery was born in the U.S (look it up), and how much the U.S benefits from the lottery via ticket sales (like most nations lotteries), you'll see that some gambling Luddites, fight tooth and nail to not let it go and expand, so much so that online gambling, outside of their vast control and very technical, usually have to set up outside of the U.S. It also suffers from its wild west online world.

    Via games like this isn't cool, though, but previous efforts like Salty Bet, paved the way for this new stuff to happen. I can see where they'd have problem without an age gate/verification of players and yes, it is not good to use the CSGo name without their nod.

    With the rise of e-sports, this stuff would have happened anyway. And its another side of shady, after the micro-transaction, that also fleece gamers out of pocket. Best thing would be more control and legalizing, than banning of online gambling in some U.S states and all of this could be fixed and possibly regulated somehow, to avoid things like this.

    Beware of online scamsters, gamers, as its easy to get scammed, by schemes both old and new. However, I doubt this will go away, mind, just evolve and thrive elsewhere, and someone else will do it.

  • Three years on, how does Bioshock Infinite hold up?

  • SpaceMonkey77 04/07/2016

    @LazyQuest

    That's true, Whatever path you take there is no real right one. I think this is why in Infinite it asks the player to choose as Booker, bird or cage, or heads or tales, and rescue the girl and wipe away the debt. Its opposites in Comstock and Fitzroy also represent these dual themes, where you can try both, but there's no real right answer, as all choices matter or none at all.

    You could be right on the vigors, but Columbia by its very nature was limited than the real world, as well as a very different place, trapped and imprinted in a previous 19th century, so perhaps the vigors needed to reflect that limitation of a satellite world.

    Another thing that makes this series special is that, due to the huge expense that goes into making games, very few of them touch upon difficult or thought provoking subjects, and playing it safe is the call of many, to not upset. From the enemy/hero math of Dracula or Sephiroth, we've been taught to dislike them, end them and move to the next game stage, free of any guilt.

    However, too much of this thinking holds all of games back (as it once did film, books and other art, too. We need games like this trilogy, MGS series, Gone Home, Spec Ops The Line, that test us and hold a mirror up to us, for if art doesn't do such, we can't rely on many others to do the same. We need them to make the world better, us better and games better too.

    A nice nod to Rapture and Columbia, both who are characters in their own right, with every leaky creak and floating ballast.

    Bioshock Infinite, because of its aerial setting was limited from the start, but despite this did well with crafting its strange yet brilliant world, while missing a beat here and there. Some have said, and I can agree that Daisy Fitzroy could have been explored more (even via DLC), since the game had a lot to say about class, prejudice and racism early on, it kind of drops this ball, once Elizabeth is unchained and free, via actual characters than settings. Finkton is that down and out place, that emulates Paupers Drop from Rapture, but there's not much more beyond that.

    Another less unexplored part was the tears in space. More could have been done here beyond mere fight back up options, and those tears that were windows to explore, didn't appear as often. I would have liked to have gone to see Revenge of the Jedi, as teased in a previous trailer, or some other unknown point in time and the world below.

    The sky hook ride of up and down, turns sharp and the twist towards the end makes it all worth it. I also love its cast, the Lutece Twins are fun from the start, Comstock is a worthy foe and well, I best not say anymore, go play the trilogy. Since this box set also has the dlc included, its a great time for any gamer to try this series out, and IMO, its still one of the finest achievements in games to date. Fun, engrossing, challenging, great music, characters and story telling, and packs more than its weight in vigorous plasmids. I'd recommend the PC version, so you can always play it, but get what's best for you.

    By this remastered trilogy edition and book your vacation to Rapture, today! We'd be lucky to see something like and as special as it again.
