    Well, Sony getting back to number one was done with listening to feedback and fixing probs.

    Steam should certainly go to PS4 (or consoles too, then the circle will be complete.

    MS, Sony still want to be gate keepers though, and that's why the PC is still the king.

    I feel you, Dark. Its frustrating to play that many give up. I like challenge, but I also like to finish games with a feeling that's high. IMO, Bloodborne needs more story and characters than just kill and move to next hit box. Reply 0
  • SpaceMonkey77 06/12/2014

    Pretty much a Dark Souls X2, Bloodborne. It looks great and might be fun to play, but it feels shallow or lacking something, probably because you have a silent character again, just killing shit just because. Reply 0

    Would still like to see what they could do by stepping away from Zelda and create a new fresh fantasy game. Zelda's been beaten into the ground, while fun.

    Will look forward to seeing what they do with Star Fox. It had best not be on rails still.

  • Target pulls Grand Theft Auto 5 from sale in Australia

  • SpaceMonkey77 05/12/2014

    @Kzin

    Not sure about the Mass Effect stats, but I'm sure if you do some Google-fu, it'll spit something out.

    Why do restaurants cater to customers? Because they love the sound and feel of our money. Rockstar like their crazy GTA money, as in a very ActiBlizzion way, it affords them much freedom to have to make so many games annually. Those GTA sales are huge as a result. A lot of devs would love such freedom, but are yet to find their own big selling game.

    @OMAW3D

    You make a good point about art imitating life. Many of the great arts were based off lowly models, and some of them were pros too.

    @zegerman1942

    Hey, thanks for replying.

    I agree that ratings should be enforced better, but if parents care little what their kids play, that battle is already forfeit and devs/pubs already do their part. You can only ever do so much. Lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink, if you will. Note, this issue exists for all media, not just games. Back in the day, some of those now in the film industry, have said that they used to sneak into/ or watched films that they shouldn't have seen at their age, but what they saw shaped their lives and what they wanted to do, for the better not worse. Games, books, music have probably have probably had their similar influences on some too.

    I fear that many of us like to jump at shadows, mind. Games have such variety that the likelihood of gamers going postal (perhaps the ultimate fear of the fear induced non game playing masses) is very low IMO. Underage folk always will do a lot of things they shouldn't do and none of us can ever stop them, while some will try. They will find a way to rebel somehow.

    Rockstar are successful and success is hard to come by in the sea of games across the many years. I'm sure that there are many who would prefer that success would come from more supposedly wholesome sanitized media (especially some in the U.K). Its not easy to hold onto success, but play your card smart and more can come your way. Rockstar have very done well at this and I think that with GTA, we might never have seen Canis Canum Edit (Bully) or Red Dead Redemption. It all feed the wheel.

    Hey, and look what just happened to Rovio, who had huge Angry Bird success but failed to build on it, with something new and their well eventually ran dry.

    And as far as adult entertainment goes, we need to tread carefully. We don't want to live in a world where all we can digest is stuff that doesn't change, challenge or push the boundaries a bit. All art comes to peaks and valleys. Surely we don't want adult, to actually mean we are really childish sheep, to be herded and led by the powers that be. Without those thinking outside of the box, we'd still be looking at cave paintings and be lesser for it. Rockstar made a bold decision about sex in their games, especially after the Hot Coffee fiasco. it could be said that GTAV is their creative revenge a bit, showing that the audience will buy it, after all sex and violence are in our blood (deny it or not) and thus will always sell.

    A smarter move for Rockstar would be to arm some of the pros in the game. Reflect reality a bit, by giving them pepper spray, knifes, rape alarms and maybe the old saturday night special hidden in a purse, and gamers will think twice about doing stupid stuff against them. Conduct your transaction fairly and leave....preferably with balls intact. Perhaps add in a system similar to Shadows of Mordor into GTAV, where a certain pros remember you and your tastes, and thus trusts you more to not be a crazy axe guy (correct if it has this. Male pros could also be a thing, but I haven't played it yet to know.

    @man.the.king

    Yeah that's a good example of a female character that would be a nice fit for GTA. Weeds is okay too.

    @Kzin

    I think it is possible in this here 21st century that we can have both a female and a male character to play as in GTA and keep more gamers content. Hell, as an example, bloody Resident Evil 2 got that one right years ago, offering two differing and intersecting points of view of that game to great effect. Again, such could only improve the GTA series. And like many don't play the single player in CoD, those who choose not to play as an optional GTA female character, will just miss out on what could be a great part of a game.

    As for those games with females not selling well, I don't believe that such a point of view is set in stone, but gradually shifting. Mass Effect was a fine trilogy and gave gender options and was still widely sold and awesome. Some chose a Fem Shep and others not. Because of the choices made, gamers like to talk about their experiences with each too.

    Tis proof it can work. Perhaps time for Rockstar to try something new like that.

    Same old media biase, as its ever been. Books and film, fine, go nuts. Games seek to grow and certain things become a no go, because you can't enjoy that, can you?

  • SpaceMonkey77 04/12/2014

    @Kzin

    Those female character types were suggestions. Feel free to come up with your own, that would be fun in a GTA game. Just like male characters, some females are nice, some aren't, that's where I was coming from and why I think its possible for GTA to have such and still be awesome...while still catering to a male crowd.

    One reason that Rockstar might hold off doing so, is because its said that games with female leads don't sell well to males. While that has some weight from previous fps/tps games, games that have both gender options will buck this trend. The Saints Row series has never let such options, hold it back from being a solid fun game, and notice how Saints Row is never complained about.

    What have I done? I've added GTAV to my PC buy list, after not liking GTAIV so much. That in itself is a feat for me but I have no trouble supporting Rockstar, when its needed. Hopefully it won't bore me like GTAIV did after a while.

    Target/Kmarts loss is every online stores gain, anyway.

    @zegerman1942

    Its okay if you dislike the pros in GTAV, Zeg. I respect the fact that GTA tries to raise such issues in a game, while I agree it could have been done better. Some will say pros is a social issue and that's true, but its also one of choice too. After Dragon Age and Mass Effect, its good to see this stuff being raised in games than dancing around it, as games have done for so long.

    From a creative standpoint, GTA series is Rockstar's and they can and will do what they like with it. Any publicity just gives GTA more cred. The game is not aimed at whiny overprotective mother types, nor is it for children, as is clearly stated on the box. With this stuff in mind, those who don't like it should walk on by.

    I think its says a lot about some in society, that 50 Shades is given high acclaim by all (fair play to a degree), and is okay for anyone to pick up and read, but we can't have our adult gaming entertainment of a male persuasion. I don't dig 50 Shades, but I would never object to those that want and like that, namely some of that same crowd giving GTAV grief, just because. Each to their own

    Next they'll be saying that fake fantasy entertainment is only for females, because they are never violent, are they. Censorship and bans ain't the answer. Its all or nothing at all. Media biase and hypocrisy is not good.

    Meanwhile in the real world, real pros have real issues to deal with and frankly no one out there gives a damn. Perhaps those game banning do gooders should go and help real pros out.

    @zegerman1942

    In response to you, I say why not pros. GTA is satire, a warped, humours reflection of life. As such it should cover as much as possible from life. Its also okay for some people to not like it and not buy it, that's a gamers thing to do.

    The GTAV fps view was a PC mod, anyway, which is unlikely to get to consoles, but that might change.

    @bad09

    I don't think that's a good excuse, while I hear your point. That's kinda like saying females, their lives and problems can't make good drama or even a game. That's not true.

    Yes, most gamers are male, true. We must be careful not to let that exclude others from gaming too, especially as gaming is growing as a past time. I'm not saying that game needs to pander to every demo, but having both sexes would improve the game.

    Be a good little rich girl (who could have penchant for party crashing, free booze and pranking others or be a mad bad gangster byatch, holding up fools for scratch, while raising a child etc. Both of those examples could tell a good tale with fun different gameplay, as you either take them on a good or bad path. All Rockstar need do is put their heads together. The recent inclusion of the character editor shows promise, that maybe they might jump this way and match Saints Row.

    Good and crude humour can work for both sexes and still be funny. Plenty of books and films do that already.

    Well, while GTA is satire for a game, I think it could evolve in better ways with some female NPC characters too. If the problem is creating good female characters, there are people that will help you with that.

    I think the loss it Target's and now (update 4/12/14) K Mart's to make. In an age where many of us are opting to shop via online and Steam, I say let these dinosaurs have their way. The day is coming where games will need such retail outlets a lot less. I'm gonna wait for the PC version before jumping in, so hurry up with GTAV, Steam.

    Seriously, for GTAVI, get some playable male and female characters in there, Rockstar. It would improve the series as a whole if done well, and who knows, maybe you might get some new females game fans. Tomb Raider had this effect happen back in the day, because there were few female games characters back then. A GTAVI with male and female characters would be cool, since our genders deal with different things in life, and there's much to satire about and have fun with both.

    The same goes for The Bully 2, too.

    Perhaps gamers in Aus should start doing their bit. The R18 rating was created to cover this kind of stuff, and buyers can vote with their feet. All this Target stuff does is set them back to the stone age, and games will never be anything more than their shortsighted conservative view.

    Guess we are still waiting for Aus to join the 21st century.

    This is silly and no doubt blown up by those who don't even play it. Doubt it'll be thing, because GTA has already made it money. The PC, Xbone and PS4 versions will sell out regardless of this.

    Note for Rockstar, next time include a female character, alongside males in GTA and thus sidestep this kind of mess.

  • Dragon's Dogma Online trademark spotted

  • SpaceMonkey77 05/12/2014

    @brider

    Dragons Dogma (next to Dark Souls, is exactly where jrpgs should be going. No pandering characters or over cute cheese. The world is well formed and easy to explore while leveling up and the action is so good that it never gets boring.

    I honestly think it has more untapped potential than even FF, which has had its day in the sun (while FFXV looks interesting. Action rpgs are where its at.

    Come now, brider. All large devs are in on the dlc racket, not just Capcom. Its all about how much you want and when you want it. I can't fault getting Dark Arisen cheao with all the previous dlc. If its too expensive, just wait for a sale to nab a GotY edition.

    I just hope Deep Down and DDO aren't the same game.

    Yeah, keep the Pawn system (as it made the game stand out and worked well) but just tweak it for 2-4 player co-op. Re-release previous games as bundle too for Xbone, PS4 and PC.

  • Street Fighter 5 exclusive to PC and PS4

  • SpaceMonkey77 05/12/2014

    @mcgarnicle

    Make fun of it if you must, but like any game, SF takes skill to time and master. Those who give it time learn how awesome and deep it can be, and those not just see it as shallow when that's not the case at all.

    I can say that I have good SF skills, fps skills and other skills besides.

    I do feel that these exclusives are fragmenting gamers into camps in the name of money and fueling fanboyism in a negative way. Not a good thing, that's why I'm probably gonna go with PC for SFV.
    Reply +2
  • SpaceMonkey77 05/12/2014

    Food for thought, there's an upside to this. Xbone version will no doubt come later and will be based off of the PC cut, which should actually be the best version of the game, and also the one that previous 360 gamers migth opt to train on for tournies. There's also less chance of SFV ever being switched off like Live, and a bonus of it being on Steam, so there will always be people playing it online.

    Looking forward to it and I don't even have Ultra yet.

    SF is an international game, always has been. A game for all, not the few.

    Not going fret because it'll be a timed exclusive, like MS have with Tomb Raider. Before some start to draw swords in another fanboy war, please note that its not in Capcom's best interests to ultimately limit one of their best selling games to a single console format. Multi-format always takes more loot and pleases more gamers.

    And remember SFIV was a huge success because it was on 360, PS3 and later PC.

    Might be time to try something new, Rovio. Don't be scared to try such, make it your daily bread and you won't have to downsize.

  • Kingdom Hearts 3 dev discusses switch from Luminous to Unreal Engine 4

  • SpaceMonkey77 04/12/2014

    Well, if it means they get their games out sooner, that's bonus for all. Luminous looked cool, but without it being in the wild and a large community, it always had an uphill battle. On top of that Square aren't known for licensing their engines to other much.

    Unreal 4 is in quite the opposite situation, so this is a real smart move.

    I'd really like to see what Unreal 4 could do with a Parasite Eve reboot.

    Because its well known in creative circles that the larger a company/studio is, the less creative an individual can be under their wings. Not all are this way, but many will be, Nintendo included.

    If more freedom were a thing at Nintendo, we'd see a lot more and different games come from them. Kid Icarus was a cool move, as they really needed an update, but that was no doubt at Nintendo's call to make it. I think the only way he'd get to make his thing would be to leave Nintendo and do his own thing.

    I love and miss Meteos, that was an awesome game. Planet Puzzle League was also awesome (not sure if he had a hand in it or not.
