  • Zombi will have more melee weapons, but cuts multiplayer

  • SpaceMonkey77 31/07/2015

    This is going to make it a tricky sale. The sweet part of multiplayer is that gamers don't rush to trade in your game, once they've finished it, as extra dlc will be in the pipe. Without it, many might well complete it and trade it in.

    I guess the zombie crown goes to Dying Light and Dead Island, then. Could still be Zombi fun, though.

    As for the nail bat, the point is that it might well get stuck, then you can wrestle it free, skull and brain parts flying....and zombie dead.

  • Capcom wants your "honest and frank" opinion about the Resident Evil 2 fan remake

  • SpaceMonkey77 31/07/2015

    @ziggy_played_guitar

    It was either the QTEs or the weapons I had at the end, that I couldn't finish it at the volcano.

    I'll have to read up on how to do it, so I can move onto RE6. That and checkpoints and Super Wesker is annoying to fight twice.

    @GeminiXLII

    I thought RE5 was fun. The series needed a shake up, even after RE4, so its different take and setting were refreshing. I stopped when the QTEs stopped me from finishing the game on the last boss.

    RE6, I still haven't played, but will pick up at some point, despite that one tripping up, Capcom have managed to turn it around for the Revelations games, which bodes well for RE7.

    Did someone say Dino Crisis? Leave the dinos alone. We had enough of them in those dino parks, thanks.

    Well I'm game for this RE2 Remake. It seems a nice blend of RE4/5/6 controls and perspective, while a little different from Capcom's effort. I'd like to see it on Steam, as well as the dude who made it get his kudos.

    Old school RE fans, you still have RE Zero and RE1 to play, and while they are fun we must move forward.

  • ZombiU is coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC in August

  • SpaceMonkey77 31/07/2015

    Could be interesting, but the lack of multiplayer will hurt it, before its even out. State of Decay was also offline and single player, so it might yet come back from the Wii dead.

  • Inafune's Red Ash fully funded after Chinese company swoops in

  • SpaceMonkey77 30/07/2015

    We'll see how it turns out. After MNo9, I can understand the concern. What's a little worrying is the need to remake Megaman style games. MNo9 was one thing to give a pass, but Red Ash could have gone before it. Reply 0
  • Fans launch Kickstarter for unlicensed Zelda animated series

  • SpaceMonkey77 17/07/2015

    That's a pity. Enjoyed that first ep.

    Best thing is not to get discouraged. Try something else new instead or seek others who'd welcome your talents. Other smaller indie games out there might welcome fan efforts more.

    Watched the first ep yesterday. Found it charming and entertaining despite its humble fan roots, while also doing a good job of staying very close to the game its based on. It also sidesteps a lot of what can make a lot of modern anime annoying and cliched.

    Would I watch more? Yeah, I would, even though I haven't played the games since Ocarina of Time.

    To the negative bunch, who'd rather go without any LoZ animation instead, go have a try yourself, if you think you can do better. You'd be waiting a long time to get this anime from Nintendo, even after the once rumoured Netflix series.

    This is cool. A fan project giving something that fans have wanted for a long time. I expect it'll meet its goal, but Nintendo might get antsy by that time. Would be nice to see it completed. Always thought it could be done better than that old cliched U.S series, and previous Nintendo anime treatments have been ...meh.

    Only a matter of time til Nintendo say, ''Excuuuse me!''

  • Video: An early look at YouTube Gaming

  • SpaceMonkey77 17/07/2015

    I don't see this catching on. Twitch is the place now, and when Youtube had its gamers, Youtube didn't care for that side enough, giving many a poor deal. I don't see that changing any time soon.

    Good luck, though. Competition is good.

  • Deception 4: The Nightmare Princess review

  • SpaceMonkey77 17/07/2015

    Ah, Kagero's Deception. This bring back memories. Its one of those rare japanese rough diamonds that many missed over the years, but is stupid fun once you figure out its craziness.

    Originally discovered this via KD2 on PS1, and there has never been another game series like it since. Will keep an eye out for this version.

    Ol' Assassins Creed could learn a lot from this game series, when it comes to crazy ways to off NPCs. Take note, Ubi.

    Yeah, its a game that has fallen in the trap of a generation shift too. THQ capsizing did not help it. Nintendo probably said yes to gain something extra and exclusive for Wii U.

    Oh well, another game to miss. Moving on....

    @perydwyn

    Not at all. Wii U doesn't have very good online multiplayer, accounts services, no x86, hard drive etc, that PC, and others do....and thus it is lesser hardware, regardless of your flag of slightly better than PS3 and 360. That nugget you hold matters not if the rest is bunk and thus chases many devs away from Nintendo, but feel free to say otherwise.

    Titter ye not, twit.

    @spamdangled

    True, but a game is about more than just that. There's a lot that Wii U still doesn't offer that 360 and PS3 offer as standard, vastly improving their games for wider overall impact across formats.

    The way Devils Third was handled, it seemed/felt like passion might have been lost half way through, possibly with the rise of mobile tempting Itagaki away so he can be his own boss, after his tricky past. Wii U seemed like last resort to get it out and finished with and Nintendo were desperate for games for it.

    Maybe he lost some of his better dev people, and what's left is a husk of a game. Perhaps once Wii U is in the grave, we might find out what happened.

  • SpaceMonkey77 15/07/2015

    Pity, but when I heard of it moving from 360 and PS3 onto Wii U, that spelt the death tone to me. The trailer looked cool enough, but a step down to lesser hardware, with not even a PC version to back it up is a tough sell.

    Very little like it, so it might become a bad Wii U classic. Enjoy, if its for you.

  • Gearbox seeks dev collaboration for next Duke Nukem

  • SpaceMonkey77 16/07/2015

    Even the most hailed king or pauper makes errors in action or judgement. MS, Sony, Nintendo etc. Gearbox have taken the heat for Aliens CM and Duke, but they will have to do a better job when outsourcing next time.

    Give them to studios who have genre pedigree to get the job done well and on time. You can never tell how things will play out, but that shouldn't stop Gearbox from pursuing further games than just Borderlands.

    So, I reckon Machine Games for Duke, and farm Aliens out to Flying Wild Hog (Shadow Warrior 2) or People Can Fly. Worthy choices?

  • SpaceMonkey77 16/07/2015

    @scuffpuppies

    Yep, a good bet if you want Duke to still be around and matter. Hell, throw them Aliens too, so they can correct that mess too.
    Reply +1
  • SpaceMonkey77 15/07/2015

    Gearbox are in a bit of a fix. Post Duke and Aliens CM debacles, they have to be careful what the focus on. Its clear that Borderlands is a game liked much more by gamers, that Duke is an afterthought to many. Borderlands like Bulletstorm, also has much better and cleverly written humour and characters. From Tiny Tina to Claptrap and back.

    Its gonna be a tough slog to get Duke to fit or be appealing, but better writing and creation of the character would have to happen. See how many Borderlands games there's been? That's the sign of successful series, and that even before you add in Tales from Borderlands, all the merchandise etc, its clear why its Gearbox's focus most of the time. All have great characters and humour.

    Outsourcing Duke again could be bad, but if worked from scratch now via a reboot, than a decade old core build like Forever, perhaps they should try Machine Games, who made the brilliant Wolfenstein games, bringing that series along nicely, with fun gameplay, characters and world.

    All the more reason for a reboot. Do like Bayonetta and poke fun at Duke, being a has been cliche in today's fast moving market. Then make changes and rebirth it into awesome.

  • SpaceMonkey77 15/07/2015

    After the last one, they are gonna need to do a major reboot/rethink before anyone will buy it again. Perhaps Duke's had its time. A relic of the 80/90's machismo, that should remain there. Shadow Warrior has managed to reboot itself with the sequel, while still being itself, so it can be done.

    Ditch the orange vest and shades, grab a leather jacket, possibly shave the head from that lame cut and adjust persona with better jokes (like say Bulletstorm,, and I'd possibly play Duke again. Name change might also work for it. Lose the Nukem of name and just call him Duke. No more, no less.

    I hope its that crazy SW, MGS style game of espionage action against the Empire, that we've lacked for so long. Kinda weary of playing as Jedi in SW games, so bring in the regular rebel dudes, who don't have mighty space magic as a back up. Would hopefully make a more compelling SW game, if like 1313 too.

  • Dead Island 2 is no longer being made by Yager

  • SpaceMonkey77 15/07/2015

    Original Dead Island was a lot of apoc nightmare fun. Maybe after the huge success of Dying Light, they might be going back and adding parkour elements to Dead Island 2. Wouldn't be against that if it improved the game.

    Who do you voodoo, byatch? (love that cheesy tune)

    Give it time and they'll bring it home, without any bites, blood or infectious itch warts. I just hope their improvements don't break DI2.

    That's nice. Might be an idea to put such inspiration into something other than Sonic, which we are kinda worn out on. That shot across the bow makes them think, we can offer something else than a 90 mascot...and gamers want a Shenmue 3.

    I can almost see all those old dusty Sega games, rising from their graves and waving, ''hey, over here, pick me, Sega....pick me!''

  • Konami scrubs Kojima's name from Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain cover

    Another way they could have done this with some class would have been via a reversible dual print sleeve. Keep Kojima Pro credit on one side and the opposite on the other.

    Everyone could have won, on top of a last cracking MGS game.

  • SpaceMonkey77 14/07/2015

    Konami are gonna have to step up their game. Pro Evo will do well, but what else will they have after MGSV? Nothing in their library is up to scratch and Konami are super shy on trying anything new. Its a miracle we even got Castlevania: Lords of Shadow and its average sequel.

    Might be time to open a new spa with slot machines, somewhere.

  • SpaceMonkey77 14/07/2015

    We can't know what went on between them, but its still a very bad move. Least they could do is give those who made the thing their credits, one last time, otherwise, why bother at all.

    The parting of them was always on the cards anyway. Kojima ain't getting any younger either and I'm sure he doesn't want to make MGS forever, so I'm sure we'll all look forward to him starting his own studio, working with others and doing his own thing.

    La le li lo lu.... besides MGS has had a good few games across the years. Maybe it needs a good rest, as much as we love its brand of crazy manga 007 Pliskenism*. (the latter creatively helped mold Solid Snake, probably Liquid Snake too)

  • Inside Shanghai's hardcore gaming heartbeat

    Pity the likes of Progear, In The Hunt etc aren't as well known. Still haven't played them but heard of them. With arcades on the demise, its doubtful I will get to play them.

    Maybe someone should look at getting some of these old arcade gems onto Steam, where they can be played and enjoyed further.
    Reply +1
  • SpaceMonkey77 12/07/2015

    Well, that was nice to read. Miss the arcades of old. Was a nice place to go and chill, check out a new game or two or just witness some of the feats of awesome skill by other players.

    As a kid, used to watch some players do what seemed like magic on SF2, SSF2 etc. I knew then that I was never going to be that good at SF2, due to joystick and buttons. When that bad boy hit SNES though, countless hours were spent trying to master it and a controller made a hell of a difference. But I digress.

    Always nice to hear of other gamers out there. I would have thought a good way to liven up such a cool arcade, would be to hold tournaments and draw in new blood. Offline is fine, but developing an online presence could help save such a place. Those guys should certainly get to joining up with their french STG gamers.

    One day, arcades might be something else from gaming, we tell kids about like fables. Lets hope that day doesn't come too soon.

  • Nintendo president Satoru Iwata passes away at 55

    Very unexpected. RIP.

    Could have done so much more for Nintendo but achieved a lot in his time. We are none the less grateful for his contributions, even if we might have not always agreed with his methods. HAL bought a lot of fun our way on SNES. He won't be forgotten, especially after those cool E3 puppets and the DS.

    On another note, what next for Nintendo? Should be interesting to see who is picked to carry the can next. They need a forward thinking lead for a brighter future.

  • The BBC is giving a tiny computer to every year 7 child in the UK - for free

  • SpaceMonkey77 09/07/2015

    @mattshark

    The quality of their docus isn't in question. Frankly, that's something they could still champion, once the license is bought into the 21st century. Unfortunately its still run by ancient types so whatever.

    National protection is fine, but means little to nothing if no one is using your service. Iplayer use is dipping as we speak, and it snot going to change any time soon, unless some sense is used. Like I said, go global and reap the rewards.

  • SpaceMonkey77 08/07/2015

    @mattshark

    I just think its a double edged blade that could be made into a single one. The rest of the planet has more money than the BBC need and IMO, they should be tapping that global audience more via iplayer for a fee and take some weight off u.k users, who've funded them under force for years and all it does is go up, with excuses on top. Netflix didn't get to where it is by staying in one place, but by thinking smart and expanding quickly. Thus more people use Netflix. I think if the BBC doesn't change enough, it will just continue to suffer more for longer.

    Its a nice thing, but few of a certain age care about it as much. One day, as we all get older fewer will care for it. Live tv isn't much of a draw, unless its sports. Docus/wildlife stuff the BBC do well, but haven't we seen all of the world in docs by now, let alone other sources? Drama/comedy stuff is cool when done right.

    News, I'm not as fussed about either, as 24hr news is a waste of time and space, with the same stories spat every 15 mins or so ad infinitum, when they could be filling that time with other stuff. Besides all that, trying to stiff for iplayer only in the U.K use on PC won't fly and in fact could end up killing it dead, as many options for stuff exist via a PC, than catch up and live tv. Youtube etc many watch instead. Odds are stacked against them.

  • SpaceMonkey77 07/07/2015

    I think its time to call time on the tv licence. Its an archaic means of doing things. These days I only watch it on the odd occasion but nowhere enough compared to Netflix or gaming.

    Region locking on iplayer should go and a fee be attached to that, letting others view their stuff anywhere, outside the U.K (a lot of ex-pats etc out there), while gaining a lot of global instant cash. A Netflix like model would do a better job and allow for the silly license fee to actually fall than continue rising. Don't really agree with those free licenses for over 75's either. Its really pandering to that age group.

    Iplayer I won't be using once they charge and we'll be back to square one. There's just not enough on it that caters to me. I'll be over there playing my games, thanks.

    A pity we can't see some progressive vision concerning the license, as we do with this Microbit thingy.

    A cool move. Bravo! Kids be lucky these days. Lessons with these should be fun, let alone tinkering alone. One universal tv remote coming up, then later walk up and down streets, switching on and off everyone's tvs.

    Now, how about iPlayer available anywhere outside the u.k for a small price of a 2 a pop, micro transaction, Netflix style. Would help recoup a lot money for the BBC, if done globally.
