  • Nintendo confirms SNES mini, including never-released Starfox 2

    @TheStoneRoses

    Indeed, but I'm cool as I still have my original SNES. Go nuts chasing this though. I'd like one but can wait. I'm much more interested in getting a Switch, than a Mini.

    Well while I'd love one, never going to be able to get one, like NES Mini.

    Good luck to those who do, mind.

    Its good but also a bit sad. because this is physical than digital its always going to have this supply issue scalpers jumping in to spoil it.

    Love you, Nintendo & SNES Mini is cool, but IMO, you still fail to see why digital is a better way to play this one. Why not just sell the games via Switch, as it came out a few months ago? Digital also vastly cuts down on manufacturing, which is causing the issue, just like days of yore, & its not a good thing to keep gamers waiting, when they could do all of this, via Switch, which can easily run these games.

    Please learn from Steam & why that works & is so popular, for old games & new. Then emulate for all those previous generations that bought us so much joy. Its really not that hard to do & avoid the shortage problem.

    Hey, look at Sega, over on Steam , selling their retro games for ages & doing well from it. There is absolutely no reason why Nintendo couldn't sell the entire NES/SNES catalogue via Steam, like Sega & do well, if they can't do so via their own store.

    I'm sure it'll be a huge hit. Disappointed at the small collections of games but also not surprised at the same time. Actraiser & Area 88 AKA UN Squadron, would have made it more awesome, but like someone said, a dlc service with access to all the games library, should be an improvement on this eventually.


    It'll be flying of the shelves, anyway, Nintendo. High five!

  • BioWare's Anthem is a "science fantasy" like Star Wars

  • SpaceMonkey77 27/06/2017

    Will be looking forward to it as its nice to see something new & has great potential to keep Activision having sleepless nights. And yet, Anthem & Destiny 2 might yet find a way to co-exist.


    I saw Anthem as more hard sci-fi but I guess we'll wait to see. I'll try to play both Anthem & Destiny 2, while I should mention them in the same sentence.

  • Nintendo's Japanese SNES mini has a different selection of games

  • SpaceMonkey77 27/06/2017

    Hmm, this is the other thing that might upset some. In the 21st century, creating a ghetto of consoles isn't a good thing, via different selection.

    As said digital is a friendly option, here, but its your thing Nintendo. I expect all versions will sell out, anyway, but scalpers will get a boost from these ones too.

    But worry not or be too negative. I'd buy a japanese one if it had Area 88 on it.

    Hey I want a 3D version of PA. I don't think that's asking much in the 21st century of Unity & failing that better 2D art assets. I can only dream I guess & its not all about me. Good luck to them & theirs.

    Thing is it shouldn't need to happen. In house game jams are the friend of every developer, so best to try more than one concept or one bag of tricks. If you aren't sure about a concept test it on dedicated fans. This gives a dev extra if one fails, you have something else to fall back on.

    But that's my view, I don't know how it is for them, but good luck to them on theirs. I'm yet to buy PA, but may wait for a sequel.

    Never mind, you win some & lose some.

    Just an idea: Develop Prison Architect 2 & make it in 3D this time. Unity & Unreal 4 are your friends. I fear too much entrenched 2D indie game design may be spinning some wheel & making some sloppy. You all know you can make it more awesome in 3D.

    Good luck.

    @Diji1

    You are wrong, sir. All game with mods don't need to even be comparable in a traditional sales point. Forgive me, but after like 24 years of buying, playing games & industry watching, I think I know some about games, fella, especially from different perspectives few might see.


    Its purely up to them mind. You are flawed if you think its because of my opinion & lack perspective. Rethink what you said here & come back.

    Indeed, I remember the days of Doom & Quake well, & they thrived well on being open to mods & are still played & enjoyed by many today. Sadly, not all devs & pubs think this long in their planning, where many look to develop & sell a game in a certain annual window.

    Bethesda soon pushing mods on consoles is a bonus & in time they will see how much extra mods can offer games, than the buy play one & done games, they've been used to. That's good for all gaming & gamers.

    @Creamysmooth

    I think that stems from a lot of console gamers not being on PC & understanding the nature of mods & what improvements that they can vastly offer all games. Console gamers are so in tuned with the walled garden, that they can't think any other way, so when R* have issue, they think mods & skull & crossbones are the same, when they are far from that.

    I agree, that R* should have applied mod support for GTAV & with RDR2 due its something they really need to think about, and more so something that many PC devs should have in mind, as such can vastly boost & grow the tail of their game. Its always a better idea to embrace modders, who may be the future devs of the games industry, not be OTT & put them off modding, because remember, they chose GTAV to mod, when there are plenty of other games they could have chosen to mod, so gifted horse & all.

    Some mods have vastly improved PC games, like Dark Souls, Team Fortress 2. Half Life (Black Mesa) Left 4 Dead, Left 4 Dead 2, all still get eternal game love, because of some super dedicated game fans out there & that should be celebrated & there's no reason why GTAV can't be played & enjoyed in a decade & beyond. With regards to multiplayer, I don't think that's really an issue, as other PC games do official DL content & user mod DL content, & both can do well, in single &/or multiplay, without any problems. The multiplay problems, I hate to say it are likely false, as I've never heard anything but joy from those who multiplay. Please show me the complaints of a damaged GTAV experience with mods while playing online, as I bet they are very few. Good luck anyway, Rockstar & Take Two.

  • Sega defends Sega Forever launch after fan outcry

  • SpaceMonkey77 26/06/2017

    Give it time & they will make this option climb. Not perfect, but its a start for a portable retro option & I still thank Sega for that option. It might stumble but its not going anywhere, I doubt.

    Keep building here, Sega & before you know it, we could all be playing Shining Force III, Chrome Hounds & Border Break, in our pockets (as SFIII's never been released outside of Sega Saturn & outside of Japan.

    Good luck, Sega.

  • Nearly four years later, GTA5 once again tops chart

  • SpaceMonkey77 26/06/2017

    I have to really wonder, what would happen if Rockstar opened up L.A Noire & Bully/CCE to mods too. I bet both games would get crazy sales boost & some cool new content, they wouldn't normally bother considering to make themselves.

    Once again, the ball is in Rockstar's hands to play & the benefits theirs to possibly gain.

    Very glad Dirt 4 is finding an audience & doing well. GR:W too for Ubisoft after many thought it'd fail, its warmed up nicely & is fun. FH3 still hanging on & doing well is encouraging too. Tekken 7 might build more, once tourny practice begins for the next fight meet.

    As I said a while back, with sense Rockstar turned this mess around, and hey presto, more sales because your gamers love you & your game. I knew you could do better & think outside of the box to a result.

    Well done & number one spot earned, not an easy thing for a game that's a few years old to do. Much to learn from this, devs/pubs, so take good heed. Embracing & meeting your gamers/modders half way, goes a very, very long way.

  • PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds made $100m in 13 weeks

    Always very cool to see a game built by mod fans/gamers do well. More so games emerging like this, IMO, is great to stimulate smaller devs into crafting their very own worlds, with some the amazing tools we have for game creation.

    Haven't played it myself, as it might melt my LTPC, but I could get into this game. I was never much of a fan of twitch fps games, but this game, which has more thought & a large world I'd check out. Overall, they are doing great at a time when some other game devs aren't embracing the mod dev community (cough,...GTAV, cough, this game shows how well it can work, if focused well.

    Well done, PUBG. Should make a cool game.

  • Titanfall 2 still getting free DLC

  • SpaceMonkey77 23/06/2017

    Glad its still being played.

    If Respawn really want to knock this out of the park, they could just open the engine up to mods, allowing for more maps to be made, or have fans submit their own level designs, and keep it rolling & fun.

    I know this might be difficult, but if they want the game to keep being played, they should consider it, IMO. Its not EA's fault that TF2 is caught between BF1, CoD & SW:BF. Respawn, take a tip from the Payday 2 devs & create extra content over a period of years.

    Strangely, & many might not like this, I think that Dragons Dogma is a better game & MH isn't as good as DD. MH may have more monster varied, but what it lacks is story & characters, which DD has with more feel, that counts.

    MH is a game from the PS2 era & not much I can see has changed in its design (from when MMOs were a new thing), but I could be wrong there, it feels very bare bones next to DD. Monsters it has are cool though.

    DD for Switch too? Not a bad idea at all, next to USSFIV.

    @Rodimus-Prime

    This game should be okay. There's no need for any drop in quality. We've already seen the game play, but I expect the lore will be there in a way that was kind of missing for Destiny (sorry, Acti, but I'm still looking forward to Destiny 2, also). Get the game play right & ready for launch & it should be alright.

  • GTA5's recent Steam reviews are "overwhelmingly negative" amidst mod controversy

  • SpaceMonkey77 20/06/2017

    I think that Rockstar & T2, while loved for their games are playing this one quite badly. The rise of micro transactions & online DLC have while such should be gold, through bad management, tipped some pee into their vintage wine.

    First thing is that mods are good for the boosting of any game. Rockstar games, traditionally have a sand box long tail, but not via multiplayer. Like Bethesda, they are having trouble between the world of paid DLC with micros or mod DLC with multiplayer. Too much micros have spoiled it, while yes they are okay to make coin from it, but there's balancing act to these things one must walk.

    I've seen how badly this can go wit PD2, so to fix here's my solution. Allow for free & paid mods on GTAV, with a small team of dedicated fans & RS staff to vet all the mods, for a price. Decide what goes free & what doesn't. Cut down on micro transaction a bit because gamers dislike but channel the ability to earn into DLC, like everyone was before micros came along to upset.

    Its really quite astounding to see RS get so upset over mods, as such things are created to boost & improve on a game, not make it worse. This is also in stark contrast to Valve & Bethesda, who talk about their mods openly. Perhaps its also a culture thing. U.K RS CEO & company, might be behind the curve, where they might see user mods as something bad & evil, when they are born out of passion, love & fun times, not hate for GTAV &/or its creators. While the skull & bones claim might look like a good play, its also troubled, because all of GTAV modders likely purchased their game & all assets are on the disc/hd, while sure, they shouldn't be messed with in a ideal world, PC games were never that. If you want it taken down be nice about it. Mods are part of the changing nature of the modern video game, kind of like portable vid cams are to movie making, so embrace that change than destroy. As you can see for the reviews, all the good you've built with GTAV, can disappear in a second heart beat, if you beat up on the GTAV community.

    The gamers made your GTA games huge, so I expect they ask please meet them half way if possible, as some of them could be the talented devs of tomorrows games. Work out a solution with them, than get all toys out of pram. If Bethesda, Nintendo (via Skyrim) & Valve can adjust, what make RS so special. Find a way to fix, or else you only hurt sales of your new upcoming baby, if gamers like you less. Good luck with this mess, anyway.

    How I'd turn this mess around? I'd create a dedicate RS stamped GTAV mod section. Embrace the mods than cut them down. Hell, give prizes out for GTAV mod of the week/month. Team Fortress 2, Counter Strike, Left 4 Dead 1 & 2 (yes, Source is more open) are still being enjoyed today, over a decade on, because their devs were more progressive & open to mods, & modders to create them with love, than build a walled garden around their game. At the same time, playing mods doesn't mean gamers won't buy new games, for they most certainly like the new shiny western or other game, too.

    As said, good luck, anyway. Tis your game & a good one, so it hurts to see/know negative feedback that shouldn't be. I believe if you rethink this, you can still turn it around. I'd still like to buy GTAV, eventually too. All of the above is my long time passionate gamer/industry watcher perspective, so take from it what you will in good heart. Apologies, if I have any of this wrong. Still love your games too.

    And didn't Atari step out from wanting to do this? How long before they jump in & out again. Go nuts if you must. You have a hard sell, Atari, after last time.

  • Xbox One X is $500 - so how much will next-gen consoles cost?

  • SpaceMonkey77 18/06/2017

    For what MS is doing £499 is about the right price, IMO. Gamers will be happy to pay & play it, if they've got a 4K tv or monitor hook it up to. Be on the look out for discounts too. To tell the truth though, how is it any different to Apple and their £500-600 iPhone/Pods each yeah? Isn't not really, but the build quality will be good hopefully. Pre-order if you must in advance & you'd have the first few hundred paid off before November release. Expensive problem solved.


    Someone said that XBX is looking very PS2 like in design, but I think it'll be worth it. With its PC like design let's hope it has a longer shelf life.

    I think that gradually some gamers will realize their mortality & try to not be a snob by experiencing as much games as possible. I'm at this space. I know I've missed many games on other formats, but there's only so much I can do about it & that's okay.

    That's the ill fanboyism talking in some. Appreciating a game on a system you don't own takes a degree of bravery, passion & sense beyond brand, some lack. I mainly game on 360 & PC, but can admit that PS4 Spiderman & God of War VII, took my breathe away. They are good reasons to buy a PS4 & will spur me to do that, than miss out on those cool experiences.

  • Hitman developer IO Interactive is now an independent studio

  • SpaceMonkey77 16/06/2017

    @SavageEvil

    Indeed I hear you, but that's part of what's interesting. Ubisoft showed a great amount of varied games at E3. I hope that one day, Io can do the same have game jam & be more imaginative & adventurous, than more Hitman. Variety is good, no?

    As for Square, while they are cool & loved, it's possible that their ways of developing games & sky high expectation might have been too much for Io to deal with. Or maybe they don't have enough funds to cover Io's games. Not every western devs output can match Activision or EA, but some might not understand that part.

    I'm glad that while Rockstar make few games, they still have variety in their stable, while Io need to improve theirs.

  • Is Anthem's E3 reveal the real deal on Xbox One X?

  • SpaceMonkey77 16/06/2017

    The rise of 4K won't be a problem. As with HD taking time by the time Anthem is out, 4K console uptake will get a boost and XBX & PS4 Pro will do well on it.

    Anthem next to Skull & Bones, made E3 shine more. Anthem is a vision of what a game can be, that I think we've been working towards for a long time, with more open world games. A seamless place, where you go out & do whatever.

    Hey, imagine if Metroid were one day an open world like Anthem, stop & think about that for a second. A pleasing thought, no? Certainly, but a galaxy of change would have to happen in many way at Nintendo, before gamers can ever dream that big & bright as Anthem. Just saying, so please don't get angry.

  • SpaceMonkey77 16/06/2017

    MS have to sell XBX in November which isn't far off. I wouldn't be surprised if in a similar way to Destiny was on PS3/4, Anthem might enjoy the same kind of exclusivity to help push XBX.

    Anthem is new, possibly more ambitious than Destiny & its world looks much larger multilayered & realized. Fight in the air, under water or on the land. Approach one big beast fight early, or take on something smaller first, all while these beast for butt kicking exist, active in its open world, at the same time. IMO, Anthem & State of Decay 2 will be the games helping push XBX. Anthem may be a Destiny usurper and I think its worthy of that place, specially if it can get all of its ducks lined up. Hope the world lore of Anthem is there from day one too.

    Once Destiny 2 drops for release, MS may be pushing Anthem as their reason to play XBX/W10 PC, as Destiny was once a PS3/4 exclusive, and who could really blame them. Love the look of it already & will be looking forward to playing it.

    Fourth quarter is going to be one hell of a battle of 2017. CoD WW2, Destiny 2, and while XBX is out in November, Anthem will have to warm to fall 2018, while other games eat up the space. Activision are lucky they have those games out before Christmas. 2018 might be very different once Anthem is out.

    Whatever happens, both MS & Sony will do well, and that's good for all gamers & fun times.

    A fun game. I get stuck sometimes too (hath GoW & GoW2 & still not finished them), but game guides are your friend, gamer. Only use when you get stuck & there's no shame in seeking help in such. Check youtube or Gamefaqs.

    Strangely I did finish Chains of Olympus or Ghost of Sparta. A bit shorter I guess but still fun.

    One of the reasons I'm excited for God of War VII: Dad of War on PS4, is the dropping of QTEs to more controlled action. (yes, there's been six previous console games.

  • E3's press conferences are killing E3

  • SpaceMonkey77 15/06/2017

    Interesting read. Now here's my reply to that.

    Computers have Computex, Film has Cannes & Sundance and so on. Video games are a young medium still and need all the help they can get. I think its good for gamers to celebrate their games & those who tirelessly create them, losing sleep, relationships & family time. I don't see any of those shows having doubts. They exist because they are needed, like everyday people may need a calendar, or Easter & Christmas. I know it can be hard for some, but imagine a world without any outside celebration.

    Reveals & unveiling are good for all but I totally understand why such is kept back until the time is right. E3 2017 I enjoyed a lot, but regardless if those there may have had doubts. The ESA have to adjust with the tides of a changing world & going with a few public days is a great way to do so, something I know they used to fight, ironically. I expect when the dust settles from E3 2017, their coffers will be okay, possibly better than before with no public days.

    Conference presentations are evolving from the boringly perceived stuffy corporate suits, to a more warming chilled style. This is why I love Ubisoft, MS & EA's & others approach to this kind of thing. Jeans and a sweet jacket gives a warm feel, he or she is much like you, despite their making games. Others are warming to it & that's good. Its good to see Nintendo getting in on this too.

    Most of my time over the last seven days has been spent watching Youtube & Twitch feeds, learning more in depth information about the games we play & love. I know not everyone will do this, but how is it any different than reading such on a website of games magazine? Certainly not. As you say there's certainly something to a face to face meeting of minds. When I watch more & enjoy the E3 Coliseum section, one of the best additions to E3 in a long time, I'm glad that E3 is evolving along with us all, so it will be here for years ahead. I believe it can survive & its via these parts that to me the true passion of devs shines through, outside of the selling of their latest game. From The Big Show with Destiny, to Kojima to Hollywood peoples of import, whom also enjoy games, just as we do, its hearting to know that as gamers, game devs & publishers & even directors, we are cut from the same/similar cloth & enjoy the same kinds of games & experiences.

    Lastly what's happening to the games themselves is interesting. They are always evolving, and even if less is made by some, better that way than none at all. We live in an exciting time for entertainment options so embrace that fact, for others in this world aren't as lucky & fortunate. I'll look forward to E3 2018, while I consider a Scorpio & Switch on my Christmas present list, but will accept nice gifts if sent to me. Have a nice & pleasant day, gamers. See you next June, same E3 time & same E3 feed channel.

  • Shadow of the Colossus on PS4 is a remake, not a remaster, says Shuhei Yoshida

  • SpaceMonkey77 15/06/2017

    This is a great game & its great to see it remastered, no doubt. The following is my long time industry watching view.

    What worries me is that this is also originally a PS2 game, & years on its still being dragged out so much. Better PSN BC would have been fine to play it further (room for improvement here), but I guess preserving for 4K support might be a thing, as Wipeout Collection shows. Not a bad thing, overall.

    I wish you well with it Sony, anyway. Many might have not played SotC, but in a world that has moved on with The Witcher & such other games like recent Breath of the Wild, perhaps Sony should really look into developing a new fantasy game or proper third/fourth game in the Ico/Shadow series.

    Last Guardian (if that's the third game) took far too long in its dev cycle, and while cool in its own right, and Nino Kuni brings that anime flavor, I think that Sony are in a quest to find their LoZ, an adventure that is constant with a good gripping story to tell if possible & fun to play. One thing I can commend Nintendo having LoZ, while it does retread its ground a bit, is good game play if its story isn't as epic.

    Good luck with it anyway, Sony & we still love you too.

  • Extinction looks like a solid Attack on Titan clone in its gameplay reveal

  • SpaceMonkey77 15/06/2017

    I like the look of this one. AoT clone or not, it might actually improve things. If it has a good story I'll be there to check it out. I hope it can mix things up a bit, but it looks fun. Reply 0
  • PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is getting a zombies vs humans PvP mode

  • SpaceMonkey77 14/06/2017

    Zombies never die, people. They are the ultimate enemy than robots, man or nazi man, because they just keep coming & absolutely will not stop. I'm sure gamers will enjoy it anyway.

    That was a Terminator reference, if you weren't sure. Lol.

  • Michel Ancel doesn't think BG&E 2 is a Switch exclusive, and he would know

  • SpaceMonkey77 14/06/2017

    Don't know what possessed anyone to think it would be exclusive, for the original was multi-format. Did someone forget that part?

    More games across more screens, is always better than less. Ubisoft have a costs to cover & making games isn't cheap & 15 years in the pipe, they need to make BG&E2 count, when the original while acclaimed struggled a bit. Good luck with it.
