  • Advertising Standards launches investigation into No Man's Sky

  • SpaceMonkey77 28/09/2016

    Don't think there's much need for this. Games are unique that we can get playable previews to get a chance at a game. I was excited for NMS as something new, but its delays got it in strife and perhaps it was a big ask for a first dev's game. Hopefully, Hello can turn the game around over time. Best of luck to them.

  • Destiny 2 will launch for PC, characters may be left behind - reports

  • SpaceMonkey77 28/09/2016

    It was a huge mistake not to have it on PC too. But seeing how it was released, maybe its just as well they didn't yet. I hope they can sort the ducks out for D2, for while I've never played it, it looks fun and I love its world design. Reply 0
  • Castlevania turns 30

  • SpaceMonkey77 28/09/2016

    @Devox

    Ring of Red was from a Konami of better years with more imagination. A big shame they never built on that game with a sequel. It still remains unique and could do well for them, perhaps like Valkyria did for Sega. Plus they really need something else than MGS, so dig in your vault and reboot some classics, Konami.

    Back to Castlevania, I think I only ever completed the first GB game and Castlevania IV. The GBA/DS games were a treat but even with them, their Metroid formula, was cool but I'd get weary and lost and tap out. The NES games were interesting for their rpg features with a day/night cycle, that were later removed in CIV, but returned in Symphony. Castlevania finding its footing from 2d to 3d was always difficult for them (see N64 versions, forgotten and ouch!), but the PS2 versions did well to claw back some ground.

    After Lords of Shadow, and its weird vamp brother sequel, I think it needs a rest, until something more can be done with it.

    Now, about that Ring of Red 2 or a new Super Bomberman game (yep, Konami own that too, now.

    Happy birthday.

    Spent plenty hours with this series. Barely completed any of them but fun was had anyway, from the NES and GB, all the way up to Lords of Shadow on 360.

    Where to next? I think Konami should give this series a break and reboot Ring of Red, instead.

  • Nintendo hardware sales in the Americas are worse than you'd expect

  • SpaceMonkey77 27/09/2016

    Its sad to see, but that game tech was always on borrowed time, from inception, since tablets/smart phones, came to stay and aren't leaving anytime soon, hence the move to upcoming NX, in a more progressive, 'if you can't beat, them join them' move by Nintendo and Nvidia. With a more Apple model, of more regular NX updates, Nintendo should be safer after 3DS.

    They really need to get NX out there, so 3DS can wind itself down from active games duty. Just surprised there's still no real new after TGS. 3DS, I never knew thee and probably won't now either.

  • FIFA 17 review

  • SpaceMonkey77 23/09/2016

    Well, I can't remember the last time I bought Fifa day one, probably was back on GC. I stagger getting them, because of all the online bells and whistles included. Sure I like playing online, but passes and ultimate team stuff doesn't interest me. I just need the pure game at heart.

    Addition of a story mode does peak interest as something extra, though. Next stop for me will probably be Fifa 15 and Pro Evo 15. Its overall good to see both having raised their game to be worthy of gamers again.

    Interesting parting note, with Fifa/Pro Evo tournies now a thing, I wonder if players that are good at both games will rule or not.

  • Four years later the Kingdoms of Amalur court case comes to an end

  • SpaceMonkey77 23/09/2016

    A fun game well made, that got lost in the crowd and troubled dev cycle.

    Its a pity what happened as I liked the look of the MMO. I hope once this is all over, maybe they can salvage something for another game, with online play instead.

    Curt and co got hurt bad, so I'm not sure if he'll be up for making games again, unless much smaller, if at all.

    They are a good dev studio, but I think its high time after three Batman games to choose something else from the DCU for a game adaption.

    Give us a Preacher, 100 Bullets or a Superman game, instead. In short, change the game.

  • Pokémon Go streamer mugged live on camera

  • SpaceMonkey77 20/09/2016

    @boo-boo-butt

    You could be right on that point.

    We all have empathy for this guy, but no game is worth putting your natural life at risk for, especially in areas dangerous. Via the game, why not give some safety tips out. If players then don't heed them, too transfixed in fun, then that's a problem partially created.

    As for such grim stuff like mugging, if things were more equal, more would have phones, coin and not feel the need to do stupid dangerous things like that. Poverty, lack of coin, good education, equal opportunity to advance, help feed such ill stuff into some people.

    Victim blaming is a thing because no one ever considers that they might/could be wrong, and still not all victims are right or wrong.

    Speaking as someone who's a real victim, of another person claiming to be a potential victim for gifts and perks, I see how things can easily go against a person.

    That sucks for him, but should be a shot across the flat screen lit gamer faces everywhere. Best not to play this after dark, alone.

    There also a chance here to amend. Why not create a phone proximity radar, so that users can see who's around them, while using their phone. If gamers were more aware of their surroundings, this grimness could be avoided. A Pokemon phone finder app would also be a good idea, so if you lose your phone like this, it can be traced or locked down.

  • British FIFA YouTuber charged with promoting gambling

  • SpaceMonkey77 19/09/2016

    Funny thing is with this, these chaps could have thrown a disclaimer on their sites, clearly stating that if you are underage, you are invalid from using the site. Then if kids do so anyway, they'd be in the clear. On top of that, definitely don't bet on your own site.

    This is a new emerging grey area, and I'm not sure that you should need a license for it (but I don't know everything about that stuff). Why? Because if there's one thing some dislike, its the little guy making good on something, while long established and entrenched similar games of chance in the real world, are run by large organizations and governments, which means more paper work and such.

  • PlayStation announces job losses at Sony London, San Diego studios

  • SpaceMonkey77 15/09/2016

    This is sad but looks like fat trimming before March 2017. Sure, it sucks but from such flux, new studios are also born. For anyone who's hurt by this kind of stuff, its certainly more of a call to do your own thing, in a small dev team, than chase larger vacancies, that could result in this less job security. After all the closing of dev/pubs over the years, it's a good move to have an emergency exit plan, no matter how good things might seem.

    How it might look for Sony? They might be looking more at others making the VR games, while they focus on normal games. Give it time and we'll see.

    Seems Capcom have gone to film for inspiration but that's good, for some of the dark horror stuff are outside of actual zombie stuff.

    Man, that dinner scene has me wanting to barf already. A great way to come back for this troubled series. Just hope its still as fun to play. Well done, Capcom.

    E3 is in June next year still, and will hopefully produce some new gems. NX too will bring its own games and VR too.

    This is a sign that there's something wrong with lacking in japan games out there, when EDF is near a highlight to be talked about. And while I've had shallow fun with the two early PS2/PS3 EDF games, they are very basic in a very musou like, cookie cutter way. More sequels and safety too.

    What else is there to say?

    Not sure how to save it, than my previously suggested giving this thing Steam game access.

    Any ideas, Sony!? I doubt new colors will massage its shiny chest, either, but try if you must. And if Japan is getting more games, why do they not translate and trickle down to outside of Japan, too?

    Also agree that they should have left the OLED screen in, because that's where other devices are going soon.

    Still good to see something of Vita, and best of luck with it, Sony.

    I have been one of KT's harshest fans, for while they have talent hiding within, they have been relying too much on musou games, so this is a very pleasant surprise.

    Yes, even while its showing some Witcher influence/creative inspiration, that by jove is a damn good thing, as such help games evolve. Color me excited for a KT game, at long last. Well done, KT, will watch.

    If you could have made your new Berserk game, like this one, I would have been all over that too. (wishes & horses)

  • SpaceMonkey77 12/09/2016

    After what happened with No Man's Sky, I can see Sony's logic a bit, in order to get it right and not disappoint. However, I think that this is overall a problem with some japanese dev studios, some still adjusting to 3D and all it can offer, if you they learn such and aren't tempted to elsewhere and other studios.

    So much has also changed in games, since the earliest days of this game, that it will either be a masterpiece or a piece of Nukem.

  • Life after console generations has one big upside

  • SpaceMonkey77 09/09/2016

    @elfergos

    Can agree that bc is a good thing, especially on PC, where there's no gate keeper so its possible to preserve many games, across many formats, sometimes long after the creators have folded business.

    While some might frown upon Scorpio and Pro, as well as the somewhat now futile existence of games consoles, both will be a step in the right direction to hopefully help preserve games, than sidestepping them in the name and glint of the next new 'shine get' game, as has been the norm for far too long. Consoles are already tiny PCs in all but brand anyway, so things are coming full circle. Sony now moving PSN onto PC, like Live previously, also aids this process. If Sony and MS get it right, we'll see.

    Hopefully by 2020, we'll have a clearer picture of where games want to go. VR should have warmed its feet enough, 4K too. My big hope would be for many of those old games out in the wild like old MAME games, to slowly start trickling onto Steam somehow, where they can be better preserved enjoyed and played to 1up hearts content.

    Man, still waiting for EA to drop those early Burnout games onto Origin (they could still be sold there, with ease and for a cheap price. I hope we won't have to wait forever.
