  • Star Wars: Battlefront release date leaked

  • SpaceMonkey77 17/04/2015

    I think seeing this new SW, is going to start the best xmas in a long time.

    As for the game, very excited all over again. 64 players going nuts with laser swords and guns etc. Bring it.

  • Battlefield: Hardline trumps Bloodborne in March US retail sales

  • SpaceMonkey77 17/04/2015

    As I said before its release, and despite the probs of BF4, Hardline was gonna sell gangbusters, literally. Sure its not as slick a heister as Payday 2, but I guess its a fun multi-player alternative for some. Certainly bodes well for upcoming SW Battlefront too, which should sell out on the back of SW Ep7.

    Perhaps Bloodborne was taken down by a worthy foe, in Hardline. All good to see, anyway.

  • Apple Watch gets first exclusive game, Watch Quest

  • SpaceMonkey77 16/04/2015

    I won't be really convinced by this smart watch craze, until there's a Michael Knight or Dick Tracy Adventures game appearing on them. Now you too, can talk to your watch, just like he did on tv. Like Knight, KITT just turn up and wont drive you anywhere, yet...but Google Drive will soon sort that one out.

    The future is so damn bright, all we need now are cooler shades.

    Way Forward make good games, so would be nice to see this one expand beyond watches.

    @redcrayon

    On a more positive note, I can agree that MH is a better way forward for some jrpg. More action based that more gamers instantly know how to deal with, and less complicated systems to drudge through. Its growing appeal could be part of that down to that.

    Having an import gem is cool and a rare thing these days. The new 3DS game will do nicely to compliment.

    @redcrayon

    I don't necessarily agree with that thinking. MH was tried by Capcom outside of Japan, in the PS2 era and flopped. Think how long ago that was and they haven't really attempted it again, which is a pity.

    While i get your point on dev costs, but if such were spread over PS4, XB1 and PC, they'd iron themselves out, because PC would be the lead, with the others needing minor adjustments. They'd be killing three birds with one stone, as From did with say Dark Souls.

    The rise of online home gaming is the other factor, that Capcom seem to miss for most of their games (SFIV and RE given exceptions) . Dragons Dogma as cool as it was didn't have online multiplayer, when many games do these day (loved the pawn system though). Back to From as a counter, they embraced online options better, showing what's possible with it. Had MH done so long ago, and maybe thrown in some story perhaps, it might have faired better. Last factor is MMO games. There are a lot of games out there, that do what MH does, but perhaps stronger with more options.

    For these reason I think Capcom held it back on Wii, with Nintendo adding funding to it, than see it suffer. I could just as easily be wrong, mind. Even if I can't, its good that people are still playing it.

    That's how Dragons Dogma beat it to one million.

    The break it sorely needed. However, doubt I'd invest in it until terabyte drives are standard in consoles. You end up with such a huge library of stuff.

  • Dying Light developer tools now available via Steam

  • SpaceMonkey77 14/04/2015

    @TekMerc

    Its a pity that most pubs would rather hold onto their level building tools than release them out so players can create cool stuff. Its probably not the case, that they don't want gamers to create and enjoy, but more so orders from suited others, tying stuff up in red tape.

    Mods are the long term life blood of any game with such untapped potential for awesome fun. TF is the great example, long after many pubs would have given up on it, were it theirs to possess. That's a big part of why Valve are loved by many gamers.

    I can also agree, that these kind of mod options need to trickle down onto consoles (long overdue IMO), so they can totally change the game and hopefully bring new gamers into the circle, and possibly creating their own games.

    Long live, game mods.

    I remember the original on PS2 and back then really wanted to play it. This was a time when I was heavily into jrpgs, so anything slightly different was worth a shot, even on import.

    More of this though. Depends on what formats it'll be on, and whether the presence of favored characters is enough of a draw. Marvel vs Capcom is one thing, but this, I'm not sure.

    Oh, did you say for 3DS? Oh well, never mind. No Vita version, no?

    A pity.

  • Star Wars Battlefront playable "first on Xbox One"

  • SpaceMonkey77 14/04/2015

    Nice coup for MS and hopefully will be at E3.

    After Hardline, I fear gamers will be feeling some BF burnout. However, there's a legion of SW fans out there, that will eat this up regardless of other BF games. 64 player in an SW game should be cool, but part of me still fears EA's arms getting too greedy on the DLC front.

    Bring it on, anyways. I'd love to return to Hoth and do battle with empire grunts, again.

  • Star Ocean 5 in development for PlayStation 4, PS3

  • SpaceMonkey77 14/04/2015

    Used to like this series for its mix of sci-fi and fantasy themes (similar to Xenogears). The slide into 'meh' of most jrpgs has since washed over me, that I rarely indulge in them now.

    Good to see Square using it and will look forward to seeing what they do with it, but I think they have more deserving stuff that could do with some attention,....like I'm tired of saying, Vagrant Story or Parasite Eve.

    No point worrying about a XB1 version. Take heart in the knowledge that XB1 will get more PC based rpgs instead, most of which rock.

    Heard rumours of a XB1 revision. If that happens then maybe that might help it. Much rather prefer a slim style, that's more versatile to store.

    Someone been through three XB1's already? Might be an idea not to leave it in sleep mode, burning juice. Use fingers and unplug it at mains and it'll prolong its life.

    And if you no likey this price, sit tight and wait for it to drop to 250-279, instead.

    That's the magic number there, 299. Expect it to start flying out over the summer.

  • Infinite Crisis and the fight to stay relevant

    Outside of the certain Vertigo books and the odd film or tv gig, I don't do DC stuff much. These whipped up story events with flash names to push this stuff ain't for me, neither will these game be. Good luck though, DC. Would still much rather see a DC vs Marvel fighting game, than this mess. If wishes were horses, eh? We don't need more MOBAs.

    Audio who? As for music stuff, I tapped out of mainstream music because of it getting too samey/seen it/heard it, plus all that tv 'you the greatest singer' guff. Will look for something different instead elsewhere,..outside of the madding crowd.

  • What made Super Mario 64 so special?

    Is still a special classic. I never completed it, like previous Mario game, Super Mario World but still enjoyed its new approach to 3D gaming at the time. However, this game would not have existed, without the entrance and specialist help of Argonaut to help Nintendo, try something different.

    Kudos to them, as many seem to forget that vital part.

    I'm using a wired 360 controller. Works just fine with a lot of games, but Evil Within doesn't recognize it (last time I checked), and its very weird in 2015 to get this from Capcom.

  • SpaceMonkey77 08/04/2015

    That's not good. Come on, Capcom. Sort this out, please.

    I've noticed that Capcom seem to have a problem with controller support on their PC games. I purchased The Evil Within, really looking forward to it, only to find that the thing lacked proper controller support, or if its there, it certainly doesn't work as it should. Still haven't figured it and thus haven't played the game. KB & Mouse won't suffice for me.

    Even old arcade action classic Dungeons and Dragons (keys only again), also has no controller support. This is resulting in my considering not buying Capcom games on PC again. Unless they can fix these issues.

    Hopefully, modders will fix RE5's issues, as its a fun game I'd like to play again.

  • Halo Online modders working to strip micro-transactions, release worldwide

  • SpaceMonkey77 09/04/2015

    @dogmanstaruk

    I know all that. My point is that this Halo game will have many looking to play it, and warm to MS.

    Remember, Halo has largely been a console series, not as much on PC, until this game, while a few games have been on PC before. Russia is more PC based than console, so may have missed many of those Halo games 360 owners enjoyed. The best part for MS is this game is digital, so nothing to copy.

    Through Xbox One in China and Halo Online in Russia, along with W10 soon, MS will be cleaning house.
    Reply 0
  • SpaceMonkey77 09/04/2015

    It get why some fans will want a piece of this. I think MS are using Halo as a trojan horse to get into Russia. When many pick up the game, they'll then have to invest in W10 and Direct X 11 to continue. Once again, MS gets to sell Windows, with Halo and their app store as the bait. Might work too. Reply 0
  • Conker's Big Reunion drops fresh gameplay trailer

    @nothough

    Don't get me wrong. No one is saying forget your past or not learn from it, but I do think that there's a lack of wanting to try anything new, outside of what they've done before.

    They are free of Nintendo and somewhat of MS. With those chains cut, why not think outside the box and create something new? The saying 'you are only as good as your last game' etc, if you strive to be and not be potentially more, springs to mind.
    Reply +1
  • SpaceMonkey77 09/04/2015

    Hope they find some fans with it, as games like these aren't made much these days. However, I think Rare needs to move on from its past and produce something fresh. I think at times it can be one of the main failings of some U.K devs, not having that next fresh idea to build upon.

    Everyone else can start something new, even indies, so why?

    Can agree some of the animation is poor too.

  • Daniel Radcliffe in talks to play GTA producer Sam Houser

  • SpaceMonkey77 09/04/2015

    Feels a bit forced. Like it was a committee led project or something.

    ''Hmm,..what can we do to get those gamers watching, despite the fact that the BBC's attempts at doing anything remotely interesting with games across their channels, has been largely, woefully poor?''

    ''Erm, we could do something about GTA, because that was made in the U.K, you know. Its also hugely popular everywhere.''

    ''Hmm, you say its british eh. If so let's do it. And get that Radcliffe lad in it too.''

    It all sounds very weird. And while the inclusion of the Black Mirror guy might seem cool, more could be done better. What do I mean by better? I mean that the BBC could go one better, and make a series about the early years of the games industry in the U.K overall (think along the lines of Silicon Valley/Halt and Catch Fire for better examples).

    We'll see in time, but I fear I might end up cringing.

    Sure, some will buy the extras so devs can make bank, but that doesn't have to be you. Online games are global games by default, so the devs will get their green eventually, so long as the numbers of players are high and consistent.

    Ultimate Team, I saw it for what it was early on, and thus stopped playing much Fifa. Its another poor EA cash grab, based on the old soccer sticker album craze, young football fans used to buy as kids. Find the best and complete your collection....now.

    @Unholy_Witchcraft

    That's not true. Go play Load Out, Nosgoth and War Thunder. All free to play and a lot of fun, without buying extras.

    Don't get the two mixed up. Free to play is just that, sometimes with options for in game purchases, which you don't need to progress. Best not to worry about what others have, in those games.

    Pay to win is more in tune with where BF series is going, where if you don't have the extra maps etc, you can't play with others at all, which is pure bs. If you can, player x has all the best weapons, because money. Expensive maps are the order of the day and none are ever given freely.

    This looks cool. Its got elements of TF2, so I'd be down with that. Can't beat some cool cyborg and mecha stuff either.

    I think that with Nexon on it, and next to Dirty Bomb, it could find fans.

    There have been GitS games before, but they have been poor. Last one I remember was on PS1 ages ago, and the least said about it the better. This game could wash that previous mess away, as the devs seem to know their fps design well.

    When this hits Steam, I'll check it out.

    GitS Stand Alone Complex (and its sequel series, 2nd Gig) anime is cool too. Check those out on BR and DVD. Just pure story, sci-fi and cracking action.

  • Postal rejected from Google Play due to "gratuitous violence"

  • SpaceMonkey77 09/04/2015

    Loss for Google's limping platform. What's the point in them doing a game platform if rivals offer more that they don't allow? And a 12 year old game, no doubt. While iOS is the mobile place to be, the same goes for Apple too.

    This is another example of why Steam, GOG, Desura, gamejolt etc are better places to sell your games. No bs like this to deal with, blocking stuff but making exceptions for others.

    Yes, Apple's view on comics is another problem, some getting rejected because Apple can't be asked to apply some better form of rating, beyond explicit or not. Best thing is not to give them too much power over what you buy too much, use Steam instead.

    Not all good stuff sells, just as not all bad or average stuff doesn't sell. I'd put Destiny and The Order in the latter camp, but that's just me, you and other might think differently.

    I'll leave it, after my supposed rant as you put it, in which you failed to answer the questions it had (I'm waiting still), by just saying, quality just like crap or bland stuff, is a personal opinion or view. Whether you like it or not, TR has done well, that's a fact and why we are getting another one in RotTR.

    @grassyknoll

    Depends what you mean by games quality. At the end of the day, a game is a product and most of them are sold to make money, thus requiring some means of sale.

    There are more factors and decisions that go into making a game that us gamers don't see or hear about. If you want to take that position, its clear that there's no pleasing you.

    Fine, you don't like it, but 9 million gamers did, and that good for Square and Crystal Dynamics (unless you want them to go out of business). TR personification of bland? What are you smoking? No, I don't want any thanks. Tomb Raider was on the rocks before the reboot, as in TANKING BIG TIME. Go look at those previous TR sales numbers across the years, that mean nothing to you, and you'll see the pattern that it was selling less and less.

    Are you seriously saying that Tomb Raider reboot, should have not been made, just to please the whims of previous nostalgic fans (like yourself? If so, perhaps reboot of films etc, should be the same and everything only attempted once and once only. We don't live in a perfect world, and frankly I'd suggest that the personification of bland be put to Nintendo, for so many Mario games. Cuts both ways, friend. You still have the old Mario and TR games you can play forever, instead.

    But wait? Those Mario games still sell despite changes, and no matter how bland they are or not, people love them. Go figure. Nintendo might be onto something.

    Well, the likes of recent Tomb Raider reboot (as an example) says otherwise, friend. If gamers like a game enough, good things happen.

    On mobile Clash of Clans is a great example. There's absolutely no reason why Layton and Fantasy Life can't also do well on mobile, given a chance and time.

    In contrast, if a game is poor, like recent The Order, it'll sell less and be highly traded in more.

  • Winners might use drugs

  • SpaceMonkey77 08/04/2015

    This mess could be avoided. For a start, calling this type of gaming a sport is warped. Yes, it takes a lot of skills etc, but its still a game.

    On top of all that, those who compete will come under an increasing amount of pressure as its popularity grows and more money is at stake. Vultures with fat cheque books glide in and will want their piece, and suddenly, like a lot of Comic-Cons have become less about comics, its less about gaming competition and more about money, spectacle and mainstream prestige.

    And when something that should be fun, becomes stressful and pressured, that some need to consider substances to keep up, then we have a problem. Try to fix it, people. Good luck to those going without purple pills.

    That's an annoying archaic term ''cyber''. There's nothing ''cyber'' about it. Surely they can think of a better name.
