  • BMX legend Dave Mirra dies, aged just 41

  • SpaceMonkey77 05/02/2016

    Will be missed and was a very talented guy. RIP.

    I still ride, but started on BMXs, while I was crap at the fancy stuff.

    I guess everyone be a chasing down those sealed copies of BMX XXX, now. I agree that game was a poor way to push a BMX game.

    True. Splatoon was a nice surprise and they sorely need more new games like it, than back stepping like you say to this to TP.

    But hey, wouldn't want to tempt the wrath of their core fans.

  • Mother 3 will finally get Western release - report

    @Malek86

    The funny thing is, if Nintendo held a competition or something, they'd be able to tap into the vast global talent that could get it done for them. Many gamers still have their GBAs/DSs.

    Look at the guy who did the Skyrim mod, or the guy who did the Dark Souls mod, which improved both games for all. Modders need not be the bane of games.

    That's part of the reason. Emulation could run the game, no problems, but Nintendo probably want to chain it to the original hardware, somehow plus security reasons, etc.

    Its also possible that they might have lost the knowledge, via certain staff, on how to handle GBA stuff well, when DS and 3DS replaced it.

  • Dust 514 will shut down in May

  • SpaceMonkey77 03/02/2016

    @Agathia

    Nah, it was a cool game. Ambitious and ahead of its time. It being a PS3 exclusive didn't help it and even when I played, you were cannon fodder for experienced players on the PC, which didn't inspire a reason to tough it out and play more.

    Then Destiny happened and more or less lost its thunder. The rest is gaming history.

    Amazing that some still don't even think, Nintendo can manage to do a mobile game.

    You'll see in a few weeks. I'd settle for a mobile Planet Puzzle League, which would work well on a touch screen.

    Also, I can't wait to see what their mobile game is in March, so they can silence the mobile doubters.

  • The Division isn't another Destiny - for better and worse

  • SpaceMonkey77 02/02/2016

    Destiny has so annoyed and pleased so many gamers, after its mega hype, that they compare other games to it, and that's not really fair to The Division.

    For any that have played and enjoyed the GRAW games, you should get a kick out of this game. Hell, and I haven't even played it yet. The E3 trailer was enough to sell it to me. Even if I don't get on the beta, it may still be one of 2016's big games.

    And I can't remember the last tps from Ubi that was....at least its doing more fun than Watchdogs, so kudos Ubi.

    @Dijon

    Ah, dude. DS2 and eye trauma. I wear glasses so that freaked me out.

    I agree that I should try more with Dark Souls. Each time I have progressed and tiptoed further into it, and each time the shadows do seem less scary. Think I got as far as some huge Skeleton giant in DS, which chased me and I stopped there as it didn't look like I could kill it.

    Maybe I should change class or something.

    @Dijon

    Didn't notice that Nicole bit in Dead Space. Love that series sense of space horror, isolation and vacuum doom. It also certainly replaced Biohazard/RE in the scares for me. From place to place, your very footsteps echoing into the silent, once inhabited places, tingles the nerves.

    Then something jumps out at you, and sometimes, you have to run than stay and fight. And like a good sci-fi horror, even when you get away from those bio-nutters and escape, you are still never quite alone, as the Marker has long since invaded your head space, giving the illusion that Isaac is free of it, when he never really will be. That's cool, as I never got that feeling from Biohazard/RE since RE2/3, barely and the story in those games wasn't as well written as the DS games. Sign of the different times and design places. ''Crap, don't have enough ammo, switch weapon,...quick..before..!''

    The least I say about Dark Souls the better. I barely/won't play it, because its dark foreboding atmosphere is a bit much, then you die and sometimes give up, to play something else. While I love its design, bosses etc, it kinda stops me in its tracks. But that's just me. Others might not have these problems with it. Maybe someday, I'll try it again.

    Darkest Dungeon I'm yet to try, but will add it to the wish list.

    Another win. How times have changed.

    I still remember the vid of J.Solomon in a Gamestop store, trying to sell the previous X-Com game to incoming/outgoing gamers (tough gig too). Was funny at the time, but you gotta admire his determination and believing in the game so much, when others wouldn't and it paid off nicely.

    Also on the get list and mods support this time around, knocks it out of the park besides. Single player gold?

  • Bravely Second steps out of Final Fantasy's shadow

  • SpaceMonkey77 30/01/2016

    @jamessmith1234567

    Dear James, I think you are falling into the trap of excusing tech progress, that would in turn improve the games on a handheld system. The better the tech is, the longer it will likely last for gamers and games.

    I'm not comparing those devices, but they are all handhelds and thus competition for each other.

    As far as rpgs go, I fear that japanese games have largely been eclipsed, by clinging to old ways for too long, and not learning/adjusting to new ones fast enough. Its also why skrpgs are now starting to show their metal, with western ones.

    And where are the skrpgs and western rpgs? On PC, where they can be the best they can be, without artificial limitations imposed on them. And amen to that. I'm loving the look of Archeage, Blade and Soul and more so Black Desert Online. The latter is like a jrpg dream made real, just from S Korea instead. It could have easily have been from Japan, in another time and place. But alas no.

    @Mr.Spo

    Yes. Go look at the 3DS from when it came out, and a break down of what's inside. The internet is your friend, to find what you need.

    Were it not for that reused old tech, more devs might have jumped on board.
    Reply 0
  • SpaceMonkey77 29/01/2016

    @Mr.Spo

    Yeah, despite the revisions, 3DS at its heart is still tweaked and repackaged N64/GC tech. Many won't notice or care, but its certainly true.

    Which is all the more reason why Nintendo need a clean, fresh x86 style technical break with the NX, than more rehashed dead tech. Such would give NX a longer life and better tools for games (fingers crossed in the fire). I'll wait and see.

    @Fragtesta

    I grew up on those games too. And the claims of certain games being to hard for some were vastly overblown, by the few tester they chose. Actual hardcore gamers in the wild are a different beast, and with friends and guides alike, will beat and frankly have beaten many of those so called 'to hard for you, gaijin' games. Don't believe that hard game hype, friend.

    @Arsecake Baker

    That's nice, but IMO, rpgs from outside of japan do a better job of late, while there are some good jprg being done still. When jrpgs go more of a Dark Souls/Dragons Dogma/Persona route, they'd evolve to be better, like some of those cool S-Korean MMOs out there, and less reliant on tropes.

    A warm welcome for it, but its just a pity its limited to 3DS. IMO, it needs a big console cut to gain more fans, as a nice alternative FF overload, and 3DS is starting to show its age and limitations, already. And failing big boy consoles, iOS/android/PC.

  • Metal Gear Solid 5 has shipped 6m units

  • SpaceMonkey77 30/01/2016

    Well, the writing is all there. MGS does good biz for Konami, and dumb pachinko slots were lesser to invest in. So much stuff in their vaults that could be used, by others if not by them directly.

    Pains to see them struggle and perhaps be less creative via recent games. Can't say what the future holds for them, especially if they push away and abuse their talented employees.

    Would like to see something new from them, but seeing how MGS has done, we'll probably be getting more of it. A smart move by Konami, in that respect, would be to let Platinum have another bite at that MGS cherry, after Revengeance was cool.

    As well as that though, some in house Konami blood, need a chance for promotion and expression, and to make something completely fresh and new. IMO, its the only way they can improve and maintain their share in games.

  • Why Counter-Strike: Global Offensive players are upset at Valve's community server clampdown

  • SpaceMonkey77 29/01/2016

    Just a thought. An exodus of upset modders from Steam, might actually get Valve to start making games themselves again, you know, like they used to. Modders will just go elsewhere and do their thing.

    GOG could be the place.
    Reply +3
  • SpaceMonkey77 29/01/2016

    Can agree that this seems like bad way to do things, when the modders have been there to play and support Valve's games from the early days to present. It is largely them who breathe much life into plenty of other games via mods, sometimes long after the original devs have stopped supporting/updating a game.

    Careful, nipping at the fan hands, that has fed you well, Valve, you wouldn't want to rock the mighty castle you've spent years building. I do think its a bad idea to go out right with skin bans, just because others might want to sell theirs.

    The creator of a work/piece, should always have the choice. Do they want to sell it for money, or just release for free? Those that choose the latter, shouldn't have to get hurt/squeezed (especially if playing on a private mod server), or else in time, the whole concept and goodwill of mods could fall apart, and that would be a dark day for PC games and all other games out there too.

    The ugly beast of monetization of everything in games, won't end well. There always must be room for co-existence of both sale and free stuff.

    I got plenty of love for Valve/Steam and what they've done for games, but this one decision seems a bit 'dickish'. You gotta try and meet modders half way and work out a peaceful, happier outcome.

    Yeah. I don't have one, but still want one. All it lacks are games, but Sony have gone quiet on that Vita front.

    At this rate, Vita might as well be the red headed step child of doom, cast out to survive on its own. However, I hope things might possibly change for Vita, once NX is out (if it has hand held options).

  • Resident Evil shooter Umbrella Corps slated for May

  • SpaceMonkey77 27/01/2016

    Er, you guys do know that the series is actually called Biohazard, right. The RE name may have suited in the PS1 days outside of japan, but its showing its age, when gamers want to use it as a banner, alongside the 'survival horror' bit.

    Frankly, I think Capcom should be applauded for trying to move the series forward, try new things, and not let it stagnate with dwindling sales, like other games I could mention here. If you no likey change, you can still play and enjoy the old RE stuff. And what's old can be new again, just for you.

    Me, I'll be playing this newer joint, at some point.

  • SpaceMonkey77 26/01/2016

    This will be good for the RE brand. Despite being built in Unity it looks groovy, and I'm getting a sweet Gears of War/CoD vibe about it too, which will do well to sell the game to the competitive gamers out there, that also like SFIV/V.

    Revisiting of previous RE locales to battle should be fun too. Looking forward to it and roll on May 2016. There's no reason why it can't do well, like Op Raccoon City long before it.

    Still a nice surprise from Capcom, and the best part, its zombie busting seems better than Dead Rising.

    Don't know about anyone else, but that trailer sold it to me. Looks fun and will be a blast in co-op/multi. And it has a cool looking single player mode to boot.

    As the action-esque side of RE, I can get behind this one. Those who fancy the classic RE have their alternative fix in other RE games, and the two different style can exist and do well, IMO.

    Well done, Capcom. Will eventually buy and play it. Kind of reminds of Ghost Recon a bit too and that's a good thing. Give it a chance, like other games, before others stamp and comdemn it as.....Not the RE for me.

    I have to say, never thought I'd see the word 'interactive' used again, like we are in the 80-90's again. It sounds lame and outdated.

    What on earth is wrong with Sony Games Entertainment? Do they not like games enough? Even the 'computer' part make more sense, but whatever.

    I can hand it to MS, for at least they have no problem putting games in their title, as in MS Games Studios. And they actually sell computers, while Sony used to (that might be part of the answer, Sony moving out of PC tech)

    So long as they deliver the good games and better/improving services to gamers, few will care about their name.

    Perhaps their could be something in this change, to aid sales of their other dwindling divisions of Sony. Or maybe not.

    Note: PSN still needs some work, Sony, especially with some of those terrible prices for really old games. You yet, have much to learn from Steam, GOG and Live etc about good sales, IMO. Your web browser is also slow and needs work. (I'm still on PS3, mind. Boo!)
