  • A complete history of Nintendo console launches

  • SpaceMonkey77 24/02/2017

    How this breaks it down nicely. A good friend of mine, imported his GB from Japan back in the day with a strange platformer game, Ninja Boy, Castlevania & Tetris. It was cool to know its awesome & we'd always be playing it, so much to have it hijacked by tutors from playing it in class, under table. Fun days. In time I purchased one myself & wherever I went, it was a great boredom reliever.

    Followed it up with GBA & DS, before the switch to PSP.

    My SNES & GC I got late. My N64 though I got around launch, which was nightmare for the low choice of games at the time, so had to opt for SM64, LoZ & Pilotwings then MK64. Skipped Wii & Wii U.

    I think that seeing as Switch is Nintendo's first handheld with a decent spec for 2d/3d games, it will do well for them after 3DS being spotty at 3d. If Skyrim is on it, hopefully Bethesda will port Fallout 3 & 4 too, which would be cool to play on the go. Its fortunes really lay in third parties hands. Many of them will probably opt for DLC games than a packaged boxed game, which might be to their advantage. Depending on the fees (insert here), that might be their better option & many will play a waiting game for it to warm up.

    I'm excited for it to do well & want one still, so all the best Nintendo. Get the games support right & they will come.

  • $10k SNES game package lost in the post has been found

  • SpaceMonkey77 24/02/2017

    Wow! That's great news. Let the project get back on track. I don't have virtua console but know that updates for SNES games have been spotty at best. Would be nice to know when this project is completed. Best of luck with it.

    Next time dedicated courier & tracking will help. X ^ ^ X

  • Dead Space is the sequel Resident Evil 4 deserved

  • SpaceMonkey77 19/02/2017

    Can agree, DS2 improvements expanding things was fun. The zero-g sections really gave the game more of a puzzle box feel on top of the scary horrors. The free fall part through the space wrecks was way cool. I just got stumped at the final boss (due to ammo & health) but had fun with it. Reply +1
  • SpaceMonkey77 19/02/2017

    Seeing as how Dead Space 3 kind of lost its way a bit, while still fun, perhaps EA should also think about a Dead Space fps reboot or optional tps/fps viewpoint, because such would really shake the game up alongside some VR hooks. I miss Dead Space too, so please get Dead Space 4 in the works, EA.

    Also agree DS1 & DS2 were the awesome. I have to finish DS3 but still enjoyed it minus its flaws.

  • Watch: We almost unbox a Nintendo Switch

  • SpaceMonkey77 17/02/2017

    Go to hand it to this guy, now seeing one in the wild, I can understand the excitement. Its been a long time since I've actually bought a console at launch day. The last Nintendo console I got at launch was the N64.

    Now Switch is so close & I want one & can almost touch it, I just can't afford one right now. If you can, I can't blame you all for bouncing off the walls like Kirby. Enjoy.

  • Nintendo Switch Street Fighter 2 first-person mode looks janky

  • SpaceMonkey77 16/02/2017

    I can agree that it might look cool to some, but I'm feeling that gimmick itch again, that comes with mo-cons. That,IMO is not what players want from SF, & what Switch buyers really deserve more is either a port of previous SF games via a collection, Ultra SSFIV or just SFV.

    Ultra SF2, because its a mash of the XBL game, while cool, I'm not feeling as much as SFV.

  • Why Halo's biggest problem may be Halo itself

  • SpaceMonkey77 15/02/2017

    @higganos

    Can agree that the Halo floaty jumping exaggerated alien physics does turn me off a bit, but its also sci-fi & while those old school fps charms just aren't for me & can bend for players. I also like CoD & BF for their more forgiving health & damage systems, where your class grunt can take a few hits before its respawn time. I think that's part of why BF became more popular from BF:BC2 forwards.

    @Robot_37

    You could be right, but unfortunately I don't have the luxury of an XB1, friend & currently game on PC. No Halo 5 on PC then I can't sample what you claim to be better. I just know that previous games in the series, I couldn't grasp the multiplayer like I could CoD or BF, and find it style of play too set in the fragfest days of fps games, when I didn't like them as much (I knew deep down fps games could be more than that). I only began to like FPS games when Half Life changed the game, with storied single player & epic multiplayer of Counter Strike & TF. Each to their own, though.

  • SpaceMonkey77 15/02/2017

    I always like the campaigns, but the multiplayer wasn't much for me. I moved over to BF:BC2, BF3, GRAW, TF2, TF & CoD Blops, instead. Reply +2
  • SpaceMonkey77 15/02/2017

    @JiveHound

    I think that its problem is much like CoD, where too much of it while fun can be outstaying its welcome, the same problem that AC had for Ubisoft. Halo needs a vacation now & then, so we can miss it & treasure its presence more.

    If MS rest Halo a bit & focus on the likes of State of Decay, Forza & maybe something new, that they could have got from Scale Bound. Don't stop developing new games, MS.

  • The new Konami is doing very well indeed

  • SpaceMonkey77 15/02/2017

    @UncleLou

    Indeed. While us gamers got a bit hurt at how Konami treated its hard working staff & Kojima, they do have to look out for themselves. Kojima is talented sure, but if they felt him too expensive & want to make changes that's their boggle, not ours. And as we see, Kojima is already showing good fortune now at his own studio, something that's better for japanese game development overall. I hope some of that Konami coin earned goes into some better staff practices & training, though.

    Would still like a VR based Lucky & Wild reboot, though. Good luck.

  • SNES preservation project "dead" after $10k of games lost in the post

  • SpaceMonkey77 14/02/2017

    A pity. Remember to put multiple address stamps on it.

    Sad thing is, this is an area that not enough are dealing with, so future gens can play & know where games came from. Sure it sucks but don't give up. Check with USPS & seek to get your stuff tracked, found or reimbursed for their worth & loss. I've had some items go missing via RM post over the last few years, and if you don't receive it & check with them you can be at a loss.

    Courier is your best friend, next time, even if you have to pay a little extra. Fed-Ex or UPS, rock, globally.

    Two weeks out at time of writing, good luck with the launch, Nintendo. I still think Switch'll sell out.

  • For Honor is the best fighting game I've played in ages

  • SpaceMonkey77 14/02/2017

    @TheStoneRoses

    I'd have to agree with you. As gamers we can't expect everything to be in our favor all the time. We had much of that once, then blasted much of it away via the pre-owned market emerging, & without that & retailers exploiting it to the max, there wouldn't be such a big push for games being online so much, so gamers kind of have themselves to blame (I've never been one to trade in stuff, mind). The Division shows it can be done well, so expect more of it.

  • How Resident Evil 7 is censored in Japan

  • SpaceMonkey77 13/02/2017

    This is still very weird for Japan, especially since most of their gamers are adults and its and adult game. But hey, different strokes. Still a great game & anyone that want the different version can buy it elsewhere.

    Maybe Capcom should have thrown in a katana or something, to ease the change. Might to time to update their censorship paperwork too.

    Hey, look at Nioh, over there, with plenty of blood too.

    @Number1Laing

    I know that, but I think they should try something new after this games. Their engine works well so some variety would be cool. Too long in the mire & some might forget what else they can do. No risk, no potential reward. Koei Tecmo was in a bit stale rut after too many DW games, then Nioh came out, showing that some of their new Team Ninja devs are paying more attention to movements in design, to try something else. Rebellion need the same or be lost in the crowd, when some indie devs with less are being more creatively adventurous.
    Reply -1
  • SpaceMonkey77 13/02/2017

    These games have steady improvement in design & game play, and while this one seems good, I think Rebellion really need a break from WW2 games after this one. Three Nazi Zombie Army games have been great & four Sniper Elites, but one has to ask the question, is this all they want to be known for? Don't any of their staff want to develop a totally new type of game, getting bored of this?

    Each to their own. Enjoy it whoever indulges. I think I'll wait for Ghost Recon Wildlands, instead.

  • Steam Greenlight had to go, but its replacement might just work

  • SpaceMonkey77 11/02/2017

    I actually think Greenlight & Early Access have changed the game of game development a lot. Makes finding an audience easier, & in an age of crowd funding where devs can go straight to their audience, (I'm making this game, do you like it or not?) Steam/Valve were smart to adjust.

    Devs need not worry, though. Gamers seek reviews before buying in more than one place. The future of Steam still remains bright.

    Alright, good for them. I thought that without their last game doing well, they'd be stuck and closed but great that they've bounced back with something more. Make it well and the gamers will come back. I thought that The Secret World was a cool cross breed concept, but it was only on PC, when it needed console back up at the time. Still worth checking out, though. Reply 0
  • Why Valve has no interest in making console games

  • SpaceMonkey77 10/02/2017

    I think that more games from them are overdue, but Steam does so well for them, they don't need to. A brand new update of Source will be a bonus for all devs out there, which will lead to more cool games. Reply 0

    Gamers can still play Orange Box, so be happy. Can't blame them for consoles make things difficult, but as they become more like PC, much of that goes away. We'll have to see how Scorpio & PS4 Pro turn out. Reply 0

  • Call of Duty will "return to its roots" after Infinite Warfare sales disappoint

  • SpaceMonkey77 10/02/2017

    Activision need to pay some attention to Ghost Recon Wildlands next month, for IMO, its through this kind of game that the future of CoD may lay.

    Open world campaign, single & co-op play and no roller-coaster ride limiting exploration, vehicle use, horde wave mode and different ways to approach missions. And surprise, its a lot like BF formula too, yay!

    @phatpantz

    No, the Korean War would be better to cover, as little is known of it or talked about. In the next few decades, if not already many veterans, some having fought in WW2 also, from that conflict will not be here anymore, so it might be one to cover, as it never officially ended either. Also show it possibly from both sides, to make it special, which few games do. Upcoming Apocalypse Now has Vietnam, already. (please note, this is the game designer in me talking, nothing more)

  • SpaceMonkey77 10/02/2017

    @megalomaniacs4u

    Not necessarily, WW2. One of the only places that hasn't been covered in games is the Korean War. Might be sensitive, but if done right, could be a cracker. WW2 has been covered plenty & we needs not go back there with all the WW2 games on the way.

    But like I said, new engine with destruction scaling & terrain deformation, bigger maps with vehicle options & 64 or more players. Local/co-op multiplayer campaign (like Spec Ops) would be cool too. That's why BF has great staying power & old ones are still played today.

    That's an interesting view. While I agree with you, have you ever tried getting kids to do what you want? Sooner or later they will rebel as we all have done to grow as individuals. Forbidden fruit with red labels will always be sought by them. Was no different when I was a kid, my fruit was Robocop. Saw much kung-fu & action films in youth & I'm yet to go nuts from it.

    Two things need to happen to evolve this series.

    1.Brand New Engine. CoD can't match BF1 as far as the engine goes, and thus suffers in what it can be.

    2.BF1 large map game play with various vehicles is too much more fun & CoD doesn't have that at all in the same way, and its maps are still running on small fps map design principals, some improvements made for recent games like TF style wall running.

    When CoD has both of these changed to match BF1, it'll be on par with a chance again. CoD is still fun but must evolve while keeping its good parts like Spec Ops mode. As far the era setting, how about a CoD game with a selection of the best. Possible different characters to choose from might be an idea for campaign. Think RE2 with its branching game between the characters offer greater replay value, hasn't been repeated as far as I know. Or perhaps a campaign from different sides of a conflict, like the C&C series has done for a long time. Good characters & story help too.

    Its good they see change is needed, as that's the first step to improvement. Good luck, Actiblizz.

  • Valve is making three "full" VR games

  • SpaceMonkey77 10/02/2017

    @ProTw33ks

    I doubt Valve would put the breaks on wider use when they could make more money that way. Universal VR games is a better way to go, as much as possible. Trouble is having FB in the game now, some of them won't want to share. Orange Box. L4D & L4D2 were multi-format releases. It makes little sense to be exclusive.

  • Nintendo's latest mobile gamble doesn't quite pay off

  • SpaceMonkey77 09/02/2017

    It might not be perfect but its a giant step for Nintendo, one I can applaud for their brighter future, while many resisted such change. To be around more & stay in this games biz, they needed that extra boost, and frankly I always knew their games would sell outside of their walled garden long held locked, because their games are just fun. Super Mario Run also doing well, watching other games soon will be a treat, even with Switch around.

    @Mr Spo

    Yeah, a return of Advance Wars in a collection of previous games would be nice on Switch. And a new mobile version for iOS & Android would also be cool. Love that game.
