    Indeed. While not all of the reps up there were terrible, its nice to have someone more down to earth. Always looking forward to Ubisoft's shows as standard now.

    @Simatron

    Some find her too much/a little scary, but then some gamers might prefer guy company sausage fests. Its nice to get a different perspective and even when many where jumping to doubt her when she first appeared, she already proved she knows and plays her games. A great choice by Ubisoft.

    And on the preservation bit, it matters not that you might not play old games, but many do and more importantly, we need something to keep for future gens. Its mostly all down to hobbyist at the mo and that needs to change, especially for the amount of cash swimming around games. Code and other stuff is lost for old games or sometimes just over written/binned. Time to stop that from happening.

    Not at all. Its important to preserve games and B/C helps to do that in part. The longer we can play any game for, the better we are for it, while not compromising a current console/PC.

    B/C needs to be a standard feature in consoles, either through emulation or not and not just a afterthought extra.

    You missed one.

    Best 'I Got This Gig Locked Down' Stage Presence Achievement goes to Aisha Tyler. As usual Ubi's show had both charm, fun and bravado that succeeds in breaking ice thanks to her, while setting others at ease and showing the games. The AC cosplayer was a nice touch, again breaking that wall nicely in a way no one has before.

    Take not EA, if not MS and Sony too. If they got a presenter of a similar type, they'd be less stuffy nerves on stage (some not all.

  • These are the most requested Xbox 360 games for backwards compatibility

  • SpaceMonkey77 19/06/2015

    @frightlever

    Its not Capcom you should worry about, but rather EA, as they are the ones that like to switch off servers for their games.

    Once Dragons Dogma is on PC, it'll be the superior version, just in case Capcom ever do pull that plug, someone will do some mod stuff and host their on server instead. Our pawns will survive yet.

  • Impressive new trailer for no-fantasy RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance

  • SpaceMonkey77 19/06/2015

    Saw this yesterday. What I don't get is why this game wasn't on the E3 stage too. Its ambitious and looks like it could be epic stuff to play. One to watch.

    Like Only says, alchemy has it place in history long before it became common in fantasy. Would be interesting discovering new element stuff in the game, than having it change your entire game in some way.

    Let's hope it gets to its release day.

  • Shenmue 3 returns, but has it already been left behind?

  • SpaceMonkey77 18/06/2015

    @varsas

    Well, hopefully once S3 is under way, Sega might be more receptive to fan contact about bringing back certain old games of theirs.

    @anthonyhillman

    BR, its one that a lot of gamers missed, due to the Saturn getting kicked by Sony. Would love someone to take another try at it, but doubt Sega will move on it.

    Powerstone was fun, but was another series held up by its permanent exclusivity. Like BR, it might do better in this bright ages of multi-format offline/online games.

    Nice to daydream about.

    Jet Set Radio done today could be cool, but I think that Burning Rangers is more deserving of a sequel. Jet Set has had a few games on various formats, but Rangers only that one Saturn cut ages ago. Could be more awesome in the 21st century.

    I do agree that if Shenmue 3 can bring all those aspects of storytelling, combat etc together well, it could be potentially a lot cooler than the original games. Like another Sleeping Dogs, perhaps.

  • SpaceMonkey77 18/06/2015

    Its going to be cool to see how this works out. Games have moved forward a lot since it debuted. Batmen Arkham is now center of group combat and other games also having pushed things forward in other ways. Hopefully S3 can tread the line well while not overusing QTE, which are kind of annoying now.

    Should also be interesting to see what engine it'll use. Unreal, Unity or Square's Luminous. I'll try to remain optimistic on it. More of a win for gamers, and kudos for Sony, but someone at Sega must be rubbing their chin and thinking....what else would they want via Kickstarter, if they want Shenmue 3? Fastest KS funded game, shows how much gamers love this game.

    I can think of a few things, Sega, some of which many fans are tired of begging you for to no avail. Hope this time, you'll do something with all those other games, gathering dust.

    Found MM footage elsewhere. Another WB cracker in the works. 2015's Shadow of Mordor, hopefully.

  • Steam Summer Sale is a go

  • SpaceMonkey77 18/06/2015

    Might sound weird, but having a Steam summer sale around E3 time is actually quite clever. Expect Fallout 3 to gain new fans if some have missed it. GotY edition for the win.

    The New Order and The Old Blood also worth a shot. Game of Thrones, a sweet outsider for its first series.

    Damn, so many games, so little time.

  • The E3 Bulletin: Thursday

  • SpaceMonkey77 18/06/2015

    Still pleased with E3. Was a great, exciting show. Even with Nintendo not being up to par, it was still well worth the annual wait we all go through.

    The real winners are gamers everywhere, for the future is bright still, so bring some sturdy shades, instead of those VR things. I'm still up in the air on VR. Great tech and demo games, but like 3Dtv before it (low five, Sony), it'll tax consoles a lot, let alone a lot of high end PCs.

    As for the growing pink eye problems...it could be big and pinky.

    Thanks for the memories and til next year, E3. Peace.

  • Fallout Shelter making more money than Candy Crush Saga on the App Store

  • SpaceMonkey77 18/06/2015

    Good for them. Its bringing that Fallout love many enjoy and should tide them over til 4 is out in November. Probably a lot of new gamers grabbing it too and why not.

    2015's new Hearthstone, I guess.

  • Hands-on with Microsoft's ridiculous $149 Elite Xbox controller

  • SpaceMonkey77 18/06/2015

    Not a bad addition to the XB1 line, for those who are more core than the centre of the Earth. Why not a modular controller, if not a modular console?

    I think the battery change isn't much of a bad thing, but more of a good one. Even those dedicated rechargeable MS units can only be charged so much before they eventually burn out, so being able to slap two AA in the back and go is a bonus. On 360, I personally got a lot of use out of 4 AA rechargeable, so get say 8 AA and a decent recharger and you'll be good to go for hours of gaming.

    Good luck to those who can afford one. It could be sweeter with driving games.

    Also a good idea to have wired controller back up. as its not good when a wireless one fails you.

  • Video: Xbox One Backward Compatibility - How does it work?

  • SpaceMonkey77 18/06/2015

    @cloudskipa

    True. 360 had so large a library, that its doubtful every title will make the cut. Getting most of it preserved a second time will be good though.

    I still get to try out Shadow Complex. Nice.

  • SpaceMonkey77 17/06/2015

    Despite the welcoming reveal of B/C, I just hope that they don't bail on it later. MS have a tendency to do that. Would be nice to have B/C as standard going back so far, in future systems.

    Well done, anyway.

  • Defense Grid dev halts its Early Access sandbox game Windborne

  • SpaceMonkey77 18/06/2015

    A pity. Everyone jumping on a Minecrafty like clone has reached it limit break. Good luck to them and maybe they can return to it some day. Buyers can still enjoy it and have a rare gem.

    Reminds me of Landmark a bit. No refunds is also a pity, but shows just how tough making a new game can be, even though we only see so much of it on the surface.

    Hey, if you have a Wii U, by all means, enjoy it otherwise what's the point in having it. Even once its time is up, you can still play and enjoy it add infinitum.

    Even the darkest place has a glimmer of hope. Nintendo will return again, somehow and hopefully better. It just a matter of time. Even MS and Sony have had dark times. Only difference is they failed, learned and bounced back far better and faster.

    One positive thing that will come of Nintendo's move to mobiles, will be breaking their PC fears. Eventually, I hope they'll consider some of their older games on Steam (say GC era games maybe.

    Wasn't aware of the fan boys going into meltdown with boycotts and nasty rage, but that's expected to a degree. These people have invested money in their consoles and games, so to a point its okay to feel disappointed. Agreed, some do take it too far, in these socially connected times. There are some very over passionate gamers out there. Might be wise not to support in such a cult like way.

    Highlights from Nintendo for me were the Treehouse, where I got a better look at Star Fox Zero and that Zelda game, cool. Treehouse is cool but builds on the Let's Play gaming culture, in a more relaxed setting. The muppets were a nice touch, especially the Starfox ones (I still say that Nintendo should sell replica of those muppets than those silly Amiibos. The muppets have more heart and any gamer could have endless fun with them). I think that consider the dire situation that Nintendo are kind of in, many were not in the mood for any comedy just yet. Wooly bits nice for some, not for others.

    I've said enough before on their show, so there's no point in my going over it. Many here share the same/similar opinions. Even the smallest NX info might have helped them. The ball is in Nintendo's court. Next time, they can play ball with MS and Sony and mean it (they've not been doing so for almost 20 years now), fighting and carving themselves a slice of the market, or just maybe move on to other things.

    Your serve, Nintendo.

    E3 was being beaten by the rise of Gamescom and Pax shows, that many were questioning the need for it anymore. Its glad that this show has proved that we do still need E3. A whole lot of gamers are pumped for games again.

    Also great that there's only been one downer, that hasn't crashed the awesome.

  • The Legend of Zelda still coming to Wii U - report

  • SpaceMonkey77 17/06/2015

    @Soul

    Everyone wants them to do well. They gave games that much needed mouth to mouth from dying in the mid 80's, for which every gamer is grateful. However, we can't rely on that hill to be a mountain forever. The seas have been rising on Nintendo for a long time, a few consoles gens of fails worth.

    The world has changed and mostly moved on without them. Its going to be a long time til we see Nintendo be at Sony style PS4 come back potential. I hope they change and are around in the future, but who knows. Maybe some fans might say we ask too much of them, for a non gimmicky, powerful x86 home console, but I still say that's not asking much. Like many, I'd love to buy a Nintendo console again, but its not going to happen anytime soon.

    Lets be clear, their games are improving slowly, are fun but lack variety, but are still hampered by their average hardware overall. Fix the hardware and a playground for their games and other would open. I think perhaps that Nintendo might not want their games to be upstaged on their home console, by some other upstart, and this thinking has prevailed each console gen. That isn't something worth worrying about anymore, as each game will survive on their own gameplay merits. And if others teach you a thing or two, be open to that change and that exchange in learning and growing.

    Thus, I must play games elsewhere and I'm not going to stop playing games without a Nintendo. Seeing some of the cool games being made without Nintendo, why would anyone want to stay in that walled garden, no matter how sweet some mushrooms might be.

    Sounds of what happened with Twilight Princess are ringing again. However as an NX launch title, it could help sell it.

    Just hope that NX console spec is x86 and strong enough to bring mass support for it.

    @Porcupine_I

    If that's the case, perhaps such muppets might make them some more money, like the Amiibos. Star Fox muppets were cool, though.

    The weirdest part is if they had revealed just a nugget of NX info, it might have saved their show and given gamers something to look forward to...beyond Wii U.

    Anyway, while they were the only show let down, glad the whole E3 thing was a lot better this year.

    Well done Square, Ubisoft, Bethesda, EA etc.
