  • Microsoft announces Windows 10 for late 2015

  • SpaceMonkey77 01/10/2014

    Hey EG, what's going on? You got this story but missed the news about MS launching Xbox One in China, which is also big news.

    Slow news day, perhaps?

    Could be W10 because China were kicking up a fuss about W8, saying they won't buy it. Other than that, MS need W10 to last a bit longer, especially if they want the big banks and other businesses to buy it.

    If its more like W7, I'll be happy but have no plans to change anytime soon.

  • Zelda fans re-making Ocarina of Time in 2D

  • SpaceMonkey77 30/09/2014

    A great passion filled project for those involved.

    However, While cool I think that if they are so talented, they'd get on Kickstarter and create something entirely new and their own.

    It won't be fun if Nintendo get their suits to work and shut this down, as has happened with promising looking projects before.

  • Ex-Nintendo indie game chief Dan Adelman is backing PlayStation-exclusive Axiom Verge

  • SpaceMonkey77 29/09/2014

    I seen this game on Youtube before. It looks cool enough and would do well on Vita. Problem is that Tom is a single dev, so probably doesn't have the huge resources and reach to get those extra deals. That's where Dan comes in.

    I do agree that the surge of 8-16 bit asthetics do wear a bit, for that nostalgia trip that bought many of us to games, and I agree that its time to move forward (2D HD and up). Trouble is few will do so yet because of the ease of using sprites and getting a game running, playing and looking good.

    There's also the factor of when you go from 2D to 3D, your game becomes more complicated, needing extra help on it for cameras, inverse kinematics, animations etc, which not everyone can afford or deal with yet.

    Good luck, Axiom Verge. And good luck to Dan too, who I admire his going solo after Nintendo kicked him in the balls.

  • Shadow of Mordor 20 Season Pass gets you Sauron fight DLC

  • SpaceMonkey77 29/09/2014

    An awesome game, no doubt.

    DLC so soon after the game has come out is pushing it, especially for 20.

    These DLC prices are getting a bit beyond the joke. Its DLC, not a brand new game, so 5 should be the price that's more reasonable and then maybe everyone would buy it.

    However, many will bite because of the Destiny fail, and wanting something to sink their teeth into.

    Precious DLC, it is, but don't get greedy, Smeagol

  • Luis Suarez real-life football ban extends to FIFA 15

  • SpaceMonkey77 29/09/2014

    Art imitating life nicely.

    I won't defend Suarez for his nutty side, but for his footy side he's a great player, and any team would have him in a heartbeat despite his debacles.

    What I do find hilarious is the hypocrisy of some fans. The dumb consensus is that Maradona is held aloft as a great player, (indeed he was) but at the same time many dis-guard and selectively forget his drug taking and cheating (which he even admitted).

    And don't spin the role model bit, too much.

    Sometimes you gotta accept the genius and the madness, as many of the greatest people to walk the earth have been this way. Time to ease up on Suarez, as he's one such person.

    And frankly, I think despite his problems he's done well, and he's a real pauper to prince story.

  • Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor review

  • SpaceMonkey77 26/09/2014

    Oh man, been looking forward to this game for ages. So glad its a good game too. I've yet to jump into any of the recent LotR games, and will be glad to buy/play this eventually.

    At last, something worth our money with a review. I hope this will be one of the better games of 2014.

    I'm surprised that there's still been no indoor footy option in Fifa, giving us that small game feel that we used to get, from playing on greens with jumpers for goalposts while dodging dog turds.

    Hmm...Fifa and mods could a cool thing.

  • Xbox One gets revised China release date after last minute delay

  • SpaceMonkey77 24/09/2014

    Could be a deciding factor in Xbone gaining on PS4. Despite China's recent anger over XP's support drying up, the penetration of Xbone will slowly expose them to a Windows 8 type interface.

    Good luck MS. I could see MS picking up major ground, all thanks to those pirated copies of Windows XP etc, that even their government rely on, alongside their regional issues with Japan. If all goes well, they might think again about upcoming Windows 9.

    If and when they fix Destiny's issues, then and only then will I possibly make a jump to it.

    Its a pity that such a half baked cake is selling so much, but yeah, its sad really.

    I'm sure those who are in it will enjoy, but I'll pass, just as I will on Hyrule Warriors. Both Destiny and Hyrule Warriors, IMO promote mediocrity half finished work, but each to their own.

    Me, I'm gonna be here instead.

  • Xbox One price cut by 20 in the UK, now 329

  • SpaceMonkey77 24/09/2014

    A good move, but ideally, I feel it'll fly off the shelves at that magical 299 price, with some games thrown in. 350 was always too much (learn from Saturn's old prices, not to go too high). Some might be tempted with xmas soon.

    I'll wait for 250-299, then try to get one.

    I think that its good of them to adjust to changing habits and mishaps that have arisen over time. Everyone should still be in the mindset that if they are not sure, don't pledge anything.

    The risk is all yours, but no rewards will come you way if you don't try.

    There's a lot of good worthy campaigns on KS, and its bought many cool things to us already, so select carefully. Long may KS continue to do so and two thumbs up for crowd funding.

  • Sleeping Dogs follow-up Triad Wars is a PC online game

  • SpaceMonkey77 22/09/2014

    I have to admit that I prefer a sequel be just as the previous one. There's this shift of late to want everything to be an MMO, because they look at those WoW bucks and want to emulate.

    Now I get that MMO's of late have become better with Archeage, FFXIV etc. Problem with MMOs is that you can only play so many of them, such is their commitment angle, especially if they are subscritpion based.

    This is probably a push from Square themselves and frankly, while I can see the potential of a Sleeping Dogs MMO, its not a smart move IMO. Why? Square already have Nosgoth and FFXIV, FFXI as MMOs. Adding Triad Wars to that could possibly offer some variety, but is a very dangerous way to go.

    They might have dollar sign blinding them, but if this is Square's new angle, I'm afraid I'm only going to have so much time to play their games. Yes, there are some good f2p games out there, but with their numbers growing, many will get by passed, because this focus on mo' money MMOs is killing single player games.

    As far as the charger issue goes, it is wrong of them to not offer one in the box. It certainly says a lot that they have loot to spend on an extra camera nub, but none for a charger.

    @justastone

    You aren't understanding what I'm saying. What I mean is that New 3DS XL is a stop gap before the rumoured Nitro, making it very 32X like. Yes, 3DS has sold 50 million, but that's not surprising considering how long its been out.

    What's clear is that as mobiles progress and Vita is around, 3DS looks dated and will be left behind if Nintendo do nothing.

    The Vita revision I didn't agree with as I feel the OLED is the better version. That was Sony's decision to cut costs or whatever, but to us gamers its another way to fleece us too. 3DS XL New is the same crap. Vita won't be revised again anytime soon.

    Overall, Nintendo are the masters of fleecing for their systems. I'm sure you could object and get upset but look across console history for the results of this.

  • SpaceMonkey77 19/09/2014

    Well, you good people have been suckered by Nintendo once again. We all know that what 3DS XL New is what 3DS should have been from day one. Anyone and their giddy aunt knew that one control stick was a bad idea (its not the PS1/PSP era anymore, Nintendo). Its a stop gap handheld, not the real deal like PS Vita, that fans deserve.

    No point in buying it, because it clear that Nintendo will push out a 4DS/Nitro etc afterwards in a year or two.

    Anyway, I've been shouted down here enough by the N-fanboys, only to be proven right (Nintendo are giving you all less for more, once again). So go on and waste your money if you must.

    PS: You see that locking of Xenoblade Chronicles to New 3DS XL? Its suppose to give you all a reason to justify/buy it. Sorry, but its a port of a Wii game you are supposed to get mega excited to buy this thing for, its already failed, IMO. I kinda hope this flops to teach Nintendo a lesson (don't rip off your custom and give better value), but most gamers are such sheep these days, that that's unlikely.

  • Arcade hunting in Akiba

  • SpaceMonkey77 22/09/2014

    As a dying part of gaming, its heart warming to see these aged but fun games on display. Never had the pleasure owning a Neo Geo, but I remember back in the 90's how it was the cream of an arcade console in your home, and I guess still is.

    Much love for Rage of Dragons, Last Blade1+2, Aliens vs Predator (arcade only) and Garou.

    For arcades, the memories of what the Trocadero in Londinium's Piccadilly was haunt me. It was a two floor mecca of arcade games at its height, long since dwindled to lesser stuff. It was cool that you could spend a few hours there, and still not play every game. Not go there for a while and you'd be greeted next time by some cool new games to play.

  • Resident Evil Revelations 2 is a cautious step forward for Capcom's troubled franchise

  • SpaceMonkey77 19/09/2014

    @adampoole

    I'd say they want to cut costs and make something quicker. Episodic though, that's such a tough call.

    Maybe it might be time for RE to go open world, than its secluded dated stuff. Perhaps then we could actually survive the horror.

  • SpaceMonkey77 19/09/2014

    RE is suffering from zombie rot and Revelations won't heal its contagion. Just from the premise of this new game I was yawning. A bit like it was committee led by those who've not played previous game in the last decade.

    The way to go is more like Outbreak, more human conflict, basic survival and less mega conspiracy crap (that's why TWD is so successful. BOWs are fine but they are set pieces to discover, encounter and enjoy. Maybe Capcom are scared of making RE too much like DR.

    As for the episodic nature, seeing as RE is an action game now, that doesn't sound like a good proposition to me. It works for TWD because its an adventure game of sorts, with many choices etc. For this game I'll worry about this part the most. 2-3 hours? Really? I think they underestimate how much many gamers play.

    I think RE4 and 5 are still the series best of late, with Operation Raccoon City cut close behind.

  • Japan's slumbering giants awake at Tokyo Game Show

  • SpaceMonkey77 19/09/2014

    TGS has been on the slide now for a good few years, as japanese devs have struggled to keep up with the changes in console tech. The inability of many to keep up with 3D engines etc, has led to many migrating to mobiles, which have a low tech cost and barrier entry.

    Basically, many of them can continue in this straight jacketed path, to make 16 bit and PS2 games, while potentially raking in more money for themselves. Now for small japanese devs, this is a great thing, as they can make what they want, reap the rewards without any committee oversight to deal with and japan needs more like them for their future.

    Large devs however will focus more on home consoles and the global market. Some games adopting certain open world aspects isn't a bad thing, that's called slow progress. Going forwards, I think that there'll be less focus on console games as a given, leaving it to other nations who know english better perhaps and can adjust better to market conditions.

    I do think its a real pity, that many japanese devs have chosen to retreat like this, than embrace the bigger future, learn new things etc. We could be enjoying much more games, especially if Unity is taken up more out there. TGS is slowly becoming like a 21st ghost town, unless they pick up some slack.

    Thank you for those who can still make console games.

    On the games bit, I thought Blood Borne looked great but played like a poorer Dark Souls. I didn't like the way that enemy AI was like DW dumb, unless you were fighting a huge strong boss type character. Enemies waiting to be hit and not even blocking and parrying was awful to watch.

    FFXV was a nice surprise but I feel that while it looks good, FF has outstayed its welcome. Disliked the aged j-pop look too and I'm worried its becoming more style over substance. No much I'm looking forward too sadly.

    Nothing wrong with cosplay, and its a lot of hard work some put into making their costumes. Anything creative gets a thumbs up, plus learning to sew is a good life skill.

    I think that some outside of nerd circles don't get it because such stuff to them is only halloween parties and stag/hen trips. High street oostumes to buy are big business, but are sometimes of a lower quality for the masses, and most of them don't do specific gaming stuff.

    As a sub culture it should be encouraged, good luck to those who do their thing.

  • Bloodborne release date confirmed

  • SpaceMonkey77 18/09/2014

    After watching the demo footage, while Blood Borne looks rad, I've learned one thing about that game, and that's is that it lacks a parry system and the enemy AI is a bit 'meh'. Enemies just being open to attack and not blocking is dumb in 2014, which makes me wonder about why these games are so popular.

    You'll encounter a strong foe every now and then, but for the most part most enemies are dumb dolls.

    Graphics look awesome, no doubt but that AI....I just don't know. Many will eat it up anyway.

  • What next for Minecraft on PlayStation?

  • SpaceMonkey77 18/09/2014

    Best for it to be business as usual. Keep it sweet, swallow corporate pride and deliver and their annuals will look way better, than if they decide to cancel all versions but Xbone/Surface/PC.

    That's the beauty of multi-format games in action, and why limiting eco systems kybosh extra sales. Time to order another money train, MS.

    How they react to the community will be interesting, especially with pc mods and lets plays.

    What that? Destiny has sold loads in a week? Perhaps you should consider porting the Halo collection onto PS4, MS. Sod corporate branded eco-systems all the time, money is money and PS3/4 owners love shooting stuff.

  • Scalebound is unlike anything Platinum has done before

  • SpaceMonkey77 18/09/2014

    @JuicyFrog

    No they wouldn't friend. Wii U has been out for two years and Xbone like 9-10 months.

    Which do you think has more potential for long term growth? Its certainly not Wii U and its poor sales month on month show that, hence it lacking much support. As much as some fans love the Wii U and its games, the thing is still like three GCs with aged innards, so don't be surprised third parties are dodging it. And despite blips with Mario Kart 8 etc, Wii U is still selling poorly overall. 7 million across two years, globally is awful, break it down to months if you must to see it clearer.

    Xbone might be a little less than PS4, but its a not really a race as MS and Sony have their spots locked down to ride out the coming years. There's little chance of Nintendo upsetting that applecart anytime soon, because they refuse to build and invest in a stronger home console that everyone can make games for.

    When Nintendo get real and bring their hardware A game, the support will return and not before. As much as some might never admit it, Nintendo do need third party games support to gain mass appeal everywhere. Console options and services must also match the competition with no draconian half baked measures.

    After N64, GC, Wii and now Wii U, I'm not holding my breath that they'll get home consoles done properly again.

    I do find the format hypocrisy amusing. Multiformat brings in more so I won't be surprised if this trickles down to PC later. If this was a PS4 exclusive, there'd be woots etc, but you can't have everything on one box, people.

    Platinum are smart to work how they are though, making sure they get their games made. If they need exclusive money to make that happen, I can't argue with their choice. Bayonetta 2 is on Wii U which I don't have but its unfortunate that I'll miss it, but Scalebound I'd invest in once I have a Xbone.

    Exclusivity, online services and brand are a consoles only real x-factor over a PC. I expect that Platinum might be hurting from doing two Wii U games on lower hardware, that might not have sold as much. A game on Xbone has much more scope and there's plenty of 5-6 million of them in the wild to feed. If Platinum make something great and get 1-2 million Scalebound sales, that would be good for them.

    Will watch because I love anything like Dragons Dogma.

    Considering how FFXIV has gone down with gamers (I'm tempted but not for a monthly sub, especially when Archeage looks better), I hope Square can get back to winning ways with XV too. They are adjusting to an action game mindset and I hope one day that they'd just offer gamers, 'do you want to play an action based combat game or a classic turn based combat game, and not try to mix the two as they did in XIII.'

  • Sony quadruples forecast loss for financial year

  • SpaceMonkey77 17/09/2014

    @Liuwil

    Some stuff to think about, good reply.

    Steam gaining ground shows that pricing is important. Trouble is that Sony (and the japanese mindset towards sales/discounts doesn't gel well. In their eyes they are losing money, when the reality is different on Steam.

    Whenever I look at PSN store, I never want to buy anything, because their sales (or MS's for that matter) touch Steams' by miles. Sony are the worst for sales by far. Outside of games, they do so much other stuff that I don't indulge in besides the odd film, so my suggestions might be off perhaps.

    While mobiles/tablets are competition of sorts, I think that the likes of Steam and consoles show the power of home systems, with larger games, superior online play, mods etc, that mobiles can't touch. Add Kickstarter games to that and home stuff wins. Should MS and Sony be worried by a potential Steambox? Maybe. If Valve get their prices right with say a lower, mid and high performance model, the applecart might shake a bit, but deep down a Steambox is but a small PC, so further co-existence with home consoles is possible. I think the real sufferer would be Nintendo, with their low performing tech, while fans will still rally for their games, they can't beat the undisputed champ, the PC.

    A Nintendo in fourth spot would be...not good. Sony are in a good spot, though.

  • SpaceMonkey77 17/09/2014

    I think that Sony could limit their losses easily, but perhaps they still want a finger in every pie. Too many divisions that don't communicate with each well has always been a bad idea.

    They should ditch making tvs (as its a product we buy and change like once a decade or so that and Samsung/LG are kicking their ass), like they have laptops. Desk tops will always be needed so focus on LED touch monitors.

    Tablets and mobiles market is over-saturated with product that under price Sony but usually offer more options.

    They could definitely do better with Vita, which they seem to be neglecting a bit. Vita will suffer more without better memory options. Some dedicated games perhaps or outsource some of those dusty IP, Sony?

    As a parting question, could Sony survive as a company just on consoles, movies and music stuff and perhaps downsize?

    Chill people. There is no Destiny hate, just critique where there was none as usual. Without any critique, we might as well let the flood gates open like Android or iOS.

    It might be easy for some of you to think I dislike Bungie, but that's not true. I admire their work, and know deep down that they can do better than what Destiny is. I'd be pleased, like many, if they can fix its issues and turn things around eventually.

    @Uncompetative

    Well done. That's the most informative post on here.

    I do get the impression that Bungie were rushed to get Destiny out of the door before the upcoming CoD AW hits in November. In other words, Activision wanted a double wham of Destiny and CoD to stick it to EA.

    Hell, I haven't played the game, but just by watching a Twitch stream, I can see there's things missing from Destiny, and its very unlike Bungie to drop the ball, especially after their dealings with MS on Halo, and not really wanting any kind of overlord while they make their games.

    Anyway, I hear Archeage is a pretty good if you want a decent MMO game and that deserves an EG review, much more than Border Destiny. Its MMO options put Destiny in the dust.

  • Destiny becomes world's best-selling new IP

  • SpaceMonkey77 17/09/2014

    @PSfourskin

    When I say faith, I mean faith in a good deal of my money for their game. Faith that I won't be fleeced or sold half a game, while they claim its a full game.

    We aren't against them making money, but I think what happened with Destiny shows how easily some can be hoodwinked and some not care about what they paid for.

    Oh yes, I forgot. Activision thinks we don't play single player, because most CoD gamers don't. Who can really care about another military fps tale, when you can only bang that drum a few times well? When switched to sci-fi, the potential for story creation and world building skyrockets, so you don't mess with it.

    How unusual it is to get so much less in Destiny. But wait, where's the story? its on your mobile grimoire app? WTF?? Who's idea was that? Sounds like a suits brainwave, but whatever.

    Thing is no one is against new IP, we are all for it. Problem is that the large publishers want to hold their money, than invest and have faith in a product.

    Watchdogs and Destiny were the games that made jaws drop at E3, and yet both while new and embraced have come up a bit short of what they should have been. Contrast that to indies, who largely make and ship a solid fun product without any crap.

    And with reviews being held on Destiny, I'm slowly losing faith in large publisher games.

  • Sony website mentions Resident Evil Revelations 2 for Vita

  • SpaceMonkey77 17/09/2014

    @Kami

    Capcom are going through the same kind of transitional issues that come with shifting to another format.

    When Vita first came out, it was easy to announce a new Vita RE game, because PS4 and Xbone hadn't been airdropped on us yet.

    Now they are trying to juggle like many devs. PS4 and Xbone lead with PC and will rake in more cash for them. Handheld games come a little bit down the chain of their priorities, so Vita is suffering from that, while 3DS and mobile might make them more money.

    Its partly up to Capcom to show why Vita is hot stuff. IMO, porting Dragons Dogma would be an option, because Monster Hunter is locked down on 3DS. Both RE: Rev games would be a bonus, as well as some more Street Fighter.

    As far as review scores go I try to pay no attention to those numbers, because its those that end up dividing us gamers into arguing camps. This is why I think it would be best to do away with review scores altogether and let the review text do the talking.

    Its stop everyone from skipping reading to the end, just to see that digit and allows for the reviewer to explain a games pros and cons.

    To have confidence in your work, enough to throw it into the wild and let it survive or die says a lot, for those who can do that. I don't trust Actiblizz to do this, since there are still very few reviews online for Destiny.

    What next? An annual Destiny update review?

    Oh, here's a previous EG MMO review.

    Take note of the date. Its long before Square did a remix of FFXIV. While EG marked it as a 5/10, the 2014 game certainly is more of an 8-9/10. How did this happen? IMO, because of feedback and reviews that Square got on it. This IMO shows they can help.

    I'd have no trouble playing FFXIV right now, were it not for the monthly fee they are asking for the pleasure.

    Sure, it possible Bungie might tweak Destiny in future, but its going to be ages before I go near it.

    Lol. All the more reason to check out more than one review, as I do. Opinions differ, but many of them will say the same kinds of things if they are doing their job well.

    Always remember, even here that a review is an opinion piece and like when you go to the doctor, is okay to seek out more than just one. Game Trailers reviews are good and quick to watch. Rock Paper Shotgun also do good reviews.

    I like to second, third and fourth opinions, just in case.

    Its still on my buy list and I was glad to see it get made for its audience, despite the odds of it not existing. Its always being tweaked anyway, so its community can suggest changes.

    Just as well that it doesn't have to rely so heavily on retail sales. Give it a year and it'll have made its money back.

  • Chivalry [Medieval Warfare] isn't dead, it's coming to consoles

    That;s a cool game, but I'm done with Actiblizz for a while. When they've sold 2 million, it might suck to have to deal with a big publisher for a console release.

    Good luck, anyway.
