  • Unreal Engine now fully supports Nintendo Switch development

  • SpaceMonkey77 25/05/2017

    @Dismiss

    Will agree that Borderlands is the kind of game Switch can do a lot with. Four player co-op is a blast to play, let alone the cool single player. Also has much dlc which would keep many Switch gamers happy. Was on PS3/360/PC so should scale well. Worth considering, Gearbox.

    That's great. Let's hope its used to good effect. Good engines still need good designers & other devs, to think outside of the box with their games, than make the same cookie cutter stuff. Good luck, anyway. Reply 0
  • Ultra Street Fighter 2: The Final Challengers review

  • SpaceMonkey77 24/05/2017

    @jamster126

    This was the only game in Switch's library that worried me, because its a game we've played before years ago. I know Switch can run USSFIV, a more up to date cut of SF, so its probably down to something like Capcom were snowed under with work on other projects to handle a Switch game so soon. Perhaps a this one was chosen as a compromise. Don't forget that, if you request USSFIV or SFV on Switch enough & Capcom will hear you & respond in good time.

    USSFIV! That is all.

    Someone get on porting it, please.

    Best of luck, Capcom. I still heart you all.

  • Injustice 2 didn't need a story mode, but it delivered a blockbuster anyway

  • SpaceMonkey77 24/05/2017

    That's a bonus to have a good campaign. Few fighting games do them well. I'll look forward to playing Injustice 2, while I missed the first game, I may have to back track to that one too. I'm clearly missing out on something cool.

    Improvement I'd like to see are the background spectators like in Capcom games, but they are still different beasts I guess.

  • Battlefield 1 announces first female multiplayer soldier

  • SpaceMonkey77 24/05/2017

    This is a good thing. Its not spoken of much, but brave women were on the WW1 battlefield, but mostly just in a supporting logistics & medical capacity as volunteer.

    While BF1 isn't as accurate, with its alternative world earth, some addition is much better than none at all. Well done, Dice/EA.

  • Dragon's Dogma re-release coming to PS4, Xbox One

  • SpaceMonkey77 24/05/2017

    @Mantis41
    Are ready for that yet. Unless the engine is updated. Maybe that's what Deep Down is & why we haven't seen anything of it for ages. Capcom have been super silent on it for ages. Maybe they'll push it at E3 again, now VR is now more establish & RE7 is out & done well.

    Oh, I almost forgot. Congrats, Capcom on DD's 5th anniversary. I was there with you and other gamers from the beginning of DD & still believe in its potential to be more awesome.

    I agree that a Switch port of Dragons Dogma could be a big win for Capcom, in a similar way to Monster Hunter has done, but much better. Switch should be able to handle it technically as well as the four player co-op & pawn system. With hours of play & dlc its the kind of game Switch user need to fill those release gaps droughts.

    I hope Capcom consider it as its should fit on an a 64gb/128gb cards. Its open world while not as big as BotW, should do well.

    DD Online is available to play within an eastern sign up, and last time I checked its good too. Check youtube and you'll find some videos of it for a better idea, by some western player reviewing it.

    @UncleLou

    I too love this game a lot & many may have missed it in the Dark Souls craze around the same time. However, if you've finished that trilogy, Dark Arisen is a sweet bonus with hours of game play to jump into solo or in multiplayer its a lot of fun. Hope it does well for Capcom to consider DD3 with a better engine. Its story might have been a not much, but there's room for improvement there, so fingers crossed for DD3. DD3 could be really sweet in Dead Rising 4 engine.

  • Bandai Namco's Get Even postponed in light of Manchester attack

  • SpaceMonkey77 23/05/2017

    @JotunNeko

    Same here. Had heard nothing about this game so they'd best tell me more. Its understandable if they wish to do this. No one will choke if they release the game, but I get why for PR purposes they'll hold it. Will now seek to find out what this game is.

    I wish them luck with it. After all the zombie media we've had, its possible they might find room to make it better, plus zombies sell if done well. I just hope its better than better as Capcom could use a movie win.

    Lost Planet or Dragons Dogma might be better games to try this for, mind.

    Good luck, Capcom.

  • SpaceMonkey77 19/05/2017

    Has it got match making, crafting, building & cross platform play?

    It'd be a shame if it didn't, but it still looks like a lot of fun, anyway.

    Overall I still really love Bungie's visual concept & designs. Going to have to hunt for its D2 art book too.

    Such wouldn't spoil it. Building is as much an action as shooty bang destroying. Get bored of one do the other. Could add to the game but we'll see, its up to them.

    I think there's one thing I'd like to see in Destiny 2, and that's options to build & repair dwelling spaces. Few fps games offer such.

    Maybe I've been playing State of Decay too much. I don't know.

  • Destiny 2's PC version will launch after console

  • SpaceMonkey77 19/05/2017

    A little disappointed that both version aren't out at the same time, as Battle Net should be ready for this PC version in advance. Despite this, I don't think there's going to be any cross platform play anyway. I have no PS4 or XB1, so like many I'll be waiting for the PC version. Reply 0

  • GAME launches unattractive new 36 loyalty card scheme

  • SpaceMonkey77 19/05/2017

    @tomphillipsEG

    Indeed, that's why I stopped pre-ordering games. Better to just wait until a game comes out.

    If their card scheme included better discounts for shopping online via them, as well as in their store, it could work better for them. Unfortunately its been poorly thought out.

    Last week you bought Persona 5 via our website = 200 points
    Walk in the store to buy Destiny 2 = 300 points

    Would that not work out better for them?

    @socialjeebus

    Agree. Gamestation was better, but that's what happens why you buy the competition and not use their best USPs with good effect. On top of that the rise of online shopping they've been slow to do well & still don't, despite their size. Better to have them around than not, though, as I'd not like to see a day when gamers have to buy their console from supermarket only, who care much less about games as passionately.

    Can't remember the last time I shopped at Game. I can't say if their card scheme will work much when better deals online can trump it for value. Stores should play to their strengths, have gamer lock ins evenings or something & do what online stores can't. A more fair card scheme would be better too. Good luck, though.

    If you want matchmaking that badly, its best to ask them about it, over the course of the game, which should be up to 2020, with dlc combined. We'll learn more at E3, so chill. It'll be alright.

    Its that kind of thing that spoils a game. I don't do chat anymore because of mouthy sweary types, but on consoles & PC it isn't as bad as it once was. Rating player system would help on that front.

    Matchmaking should be in there, but might come later, after play feedback. Request matchmaking and they should make it happen. Reply 0

    @SavageEvil

    Well it looks good. Too many games to play, another to add to the list. Clans is okay but I don't do those, as much, prefer to play with whoever's good. If it gives points for drilling others in the game, then that's a huge bonus. Some of the best fun comes when some don't know a game as much as you.

  • The Witcher Netflix series begins production

  • SpaceMonkey77 18/05/2017

    @Sagara_Sousuke_x

    I have to say I have a lot of faith in Netflix after subscribing since they started in the U.K in 2011. Their way is the future & many fear that change greatly, but they still soldier on, create do well & that's to be admired.

    Overall its a good time for shows online. The new Star Trek trailer yesterday also has me very excited, go see it. As for Marco Polo, I like that show. Because its part of history few know, many may look down upon it, but I expect things will get much better for it had they finished it. If Marco Polo is canceled then so be it. Perhaps that's why Netflix wish to replace & make The Witcher instead, a smart move as five books or so are already done. Book adaptions are a safer bet because of a built audience, as GoT & MitHC both show.

    I remember it, but that was a long time ago. Production values have improved since then & Netflix don't mind spending for a show worthy the spend. There's no reason why with the right minds behind it, this won't be awesome.

    I'm not sure about the actors, but what will intrigue me more is the special effects for beasts & foes & world building. We haven't seen much like that outside of Game of Thrones or Shannara, so we'll have to wait & see.

    Will be good either way.

  • Arms is that rare thing - a motion control game that works

  • SpaceMonkey77 18/05/2017

    I liked this game from the first video. Its original in a way Nintendo sorely need and I think it'll do well for Switch. While there's no Punch Out game on Switch this is a great substitute. If its online mode holds up well, which should be a problem for a one on one brawler, I think its going to sell out on launch. On top of that, there's no SFIV or SFV to go up against.

    How can it fail? Best of luck with it. Shore horn of mo-cons I hope burns out. I get Nintendo trying to cultivate that as unique but IMO, its had its day. Wii exists so people can do that.

  • Ubisoft sets its E3 press conference date

  • SpaceMonkey77 17/05/2017

    Well I'm all for a more diverse games industry, where regardless of gender or color we can do well. There's not a great deal of people of color in games, but that's changing slowly via indies and other nations making games. More diverse creators who have different experiences the better games will be.

    I happen to think Aisha is a good thing for games, because not all of us can afford hugely expensive funds to study programming & such, but having the option is a good thing, even if cheaper means. There will be little future devs regardless of color out there, who'll see its okay to want to make games for a living, even if only via being up on stage and being awesome.
