    More pixel arts. We need a bit more than that, but nice all the same. Would have preferred a 3D game built in Unity or something that brings the creepy pasta horror vibe. Sorry to be picky, will check it out. Reply -11

  • Capcom's hard play for the west has resulted in a very different Monster Hunter

  • SpaceMonkey77 03/10/2017

    @Samael_Blackwing

    I guess MH characters are more fantasy based so might not fit, I don't know. They'd fit more with a D&D, D-Dogma group.

    Can agree some Rivals Schools or Powerstone characters would be a good idea future of Capcom fighters.

    Last MH I purchased was the PSP version. I know the cats you speak of, but that's not the same & they are nowhere near as iconic in character. Has any of these characters appeared in a MvsC game? Then that should tell you enough. Just saying.

    I do think the other problem this series has is one of identity.

    If I say Dead Rising, you can say Frank West, If I say Street Fighter, you can say Ryu & Ken, but if I say Monster Hunter, what say you? Not much you can say, as the characters lack personality like other Capcom games. Its characters need to break that MMO template, even if with a character editor.

    Overwatch is a great example of late, how to add characters that bounce personality. They wise crack or are stoic, they celebrate when you win & commiserate when they loose. MH needs this, even if in a form like Dragons Dogma. It took a while for LoZ to get Link with a voice too, but it can be done more I hope in MH.

    Do you all remember in RE4, when you help the wolf in the woods? MH needs moments like that too, where you aid a beast in trouble & later a beast, at some point during the game, returns a favor in kind, than just being meat sacks to slay with minor intelligence.

    Think about it.

    MH I'd play if it were more like DD, where your characters have a bit more character & personality, than that 90's/2000 MH MMO style silent protagonist. If I'm going to spend a long time playing as a character, I need some dialogue & interaction with NPCs as well as some lore/story to feel more at home. DD, I love because when my pawns fight with me, those lines of dialogue based in some personality, if fighting or not, mean a lot to make the world feel rounded & the player less alone.


    What I've seen of MH so far looks like an improvement, but what I'd really like to see from this game, is to rather than just slaying beasts, being able to capture them, train them & call them to fight on your behalf. Now, that idea in this game would make it totally rock my world, but just find beast & slay for chips & extra armour can get a little dry.


    If you've ever seen that big epic monster fights like in Godzilla or King Kong movies, that is what I want from Monster Hunter, besides the slay/harvest option. Think about it Capcom, because no game I know has really done much of that yet, & that would so make me love Monster Hunter much more, as beast vs beast fights go crazy.


    My giant gorilla vs your giant T-Rex, will dual by the river at dawn & one of us will have satisfaction. Even as a special arena fight mode, or in game, this would be way cool, & kind of Pokemon style too but more awesome. Add some online play & MH would be more off the hook than ever before. ((hey Capcom, for bringing me so much gaming joy for most of my life, you're most welcome for the game feedback tips))

    Still looking forward to playing MH.

  • Watch: Scorn may look fantastic, but its gameplay is utterly archaic

  • SpaceMonkey77 02/10/2017

    Needs some more work on its nip-tuck, then. Give it time. Feedback is the best thing about PC games, so they can get the game play balance correct.

    If it works out, it could be another KS dream project made real. Good luck!

  • HTC Vive bundles free Fallout 4 VR for limited time

  • SpaceMonkey77 02/10/2017

    Its a good idea to bundle this stuff. ST Bridge Crew did well out of it so why not? Many won't be buying VR until the price drops a bit, in the next two-three years.

    Good luck, HTC/Bethesda.

  • FIFA 18 physical launch sales down 25% from last year

  • SpaceMonkey77 02/10/2017

    Fifa going more digital makes more sense as the series has been annual for so long, the rise of digital will soon become the norm, perhaps with physical copies eventually printed on demand, beyond initial print runs.
    Both Fife & rival Pro Evo will do well.

    Other games will go the same way, over the next few years.

  • Ataribox: Ouya 2.0, evolved Steam Machine or something more?

  • SpaceMonkey77 30/09/2017

    I think the time of these kinds of consoles has been & gone, exception made for the SNES & NES Mini lines.

    If you want this piece of retro gaming, go nuts but I don't think it'll be selling out. As for Steam box, we've yet to see it, but that might be the last of its kind, as the wonder of cables lets you hook your PC up to your nice tv & most controllers come in both wired & wireless forms.

    Good luck!

  • Here's the first Red Dead Redemption 2 story trailer

  • SpaceMonkey77 28/09/2017

    @BlackFlower

    I think its a fear of PC modders & perhaps piracy (the latter less likely due to Steam & other services dropping prices super low quite often), when those who do such modding are few talented bunch of people. Its not much to fear but while they are looking to find happy medium some still have crippling fear there, possibly not so much Rockstar creatives, but maybe others in their stable, who don't make the games.

    If Rockstar incentivize & meet their fans half way, there's less cause to worry about any of the above & PC version should go out.

    Okay, dude. Just replying. There is good reason why for games I try to have all formats available in the generational time, for the best wider scope of games. And yes, as you say, its their game so they can do with it as they see fit & their choice, certainly.

    That's the brand fanboy in you talking. You should think better than that. Any game if possible deserves the widest exposure for sale a dev can give it. No PC version would be a problem & reduce potential sales. There's no real reason why Rockstar can't in the 21 century & the very lack of quantity of games they create, can't do such an all home formats launch. EA manages to do so, as do others, so I hope R* do too, as it also keeps the unnecessary fanboys sated.

    Looks groovy, sweet, fantastic! I dare say that without a need to a nega-blast, I hope the PC version is up to scratch. The experiences that Rockstar have had with the GTA modders, I hope they turn to a positive with RDR2, especially in the wake of PUBG, how RDR2 play online will have to be something really special.


    I'll have to play the original RDR, yet but will add to the gaming bucket list. My gamer bad!


    RDR2 in 2018, will likely be one of the best games of 2018. I don't have a PS4,XBS or upcoming XBX or new gaming LTPC to play RDR2, but shall be watching the reviews & let's plays instead, & know others enjoy it.

  • Layoffs at Saints Row developer Volition

  • SpaceMonkey77 28/09/2017

    This might be a shot across the bow for them, but while I hope those let go find somewhere else to create, some new small devs might also be born of this & new games come forth too.

    Perhaps too much Saints Row & trying to run with GTA has hurt them. Once Volition recover, I'd consider a multiplayer element for AoM or even a Switch port to give it a boost, as well as in studio game jams to find something fresh to create. Saint Row could do with a rest while something totally new in perhaps given chance. I know that's scary, but its a better option to aid fitter survival.

    Good luck everyone there, & in the wind.

  • SpaceMonkey77 28/09/2017

    Wow, this is a pity. AoM was doing okay or so I thought.

    Hope the lack of multiplayer didn't hurt it.

  • SpaceMonkey77 27/09/2017

    Hmm...I think Japan will always be of import, while not as much as before now on a global stage, with other nations entering, they must adapt & seem to be doing so gradually.

    Sega's resurgence is cool to see. Capcom doing well great too. Square & Konami moving in different directions but doing okay & more too. The diversify at last came before the possible die & that's good to know.

    Going forwards the rise of Switch is also great to see, giving Japan a good stake in games besides Sony's PlayStation 4. While the Switch shortage is still a problem in part due to its runaway success, I hope that Nintendo's boosting production of Switch through phase out of lesser models can help them.

    Thanks for the report, EG.

  • Despite controversy, Fortnite's PUBG-style Battle Royale mode gets off to a flyer

  • SpaceMonkey77 27/09/2017

    I think PUBG guys are worrying about nothing. Gear of War 3 implemented horde mode with some structures before Fortnite was out, so I think Fortnite builds on Gears & a dose of battle style.


    BOTH can do well & co-exist, as PC games have done for a long time.

  • "We understand many Persona fans would love to see a PC version"

  • SpaceMonkey77 27/09/2017

    I hope Atlus think on this one. Persona 3, 4 & 5 on PC would be a good thing for them, following on the success Sega found via Steam with Valkyria Chronicles, there's an audience there for these games than just on console.

    I know you like making money, Atlus & Sega, so its not really rocket science to produce a PC port of each (maybe Switch too if you want an extra boost). PS4 is more PC based already, so half the work is done & all of these games have already completed their development cycle.

    Good luck, anyway, Atlus/Sega. X ^ ^ X

  • SpaceMonkey77 27/09/2017

    @Foolish_Monkey

    What you feel is no surprise. I know & expect that there are many devs who might want to go smaller, because their game concept isn't going to get any traction at a large studio. If feeling unfulfilled continues, soon or later some devs will leave to create their own games.

    If you really want to in this glorious 21st century, there's nothing stopping you doing so in a tiny team on a budget, so don't stop dreaming. Many give up on their dreams & regret it. Good luck.

    You took the words right outta my mouth. Another perfect game that would be cool for Switch (if not Torchlight 1+2, besides). Cross your fingers, until then Steam delivers.

  • Cammy's stage from Super Street Fighter 2 reimagined for Street Fighter 5

  • SpaceMonkey77 26/09/2017

    Hey, Scotland has more grey colors than that. Just jesting. Aesthetics are interesting & design for games stages more so. Perhaps this background needs updating for Scotland, to a more street setting, what looks like Knightsbridge in London's SF 3rd Strike or NYC tube station. I enjoy the thought that goes into an SF stage, where some other's fighting games don't bother.

    All alternatives look cool, & I love to see some originality & mirth.

  • PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds developer slams Fornite for "replicating" gameplay

  • SpaceMonkey77 22/09/2017

    Wow! Now this is turning into Battle Royale of Survival Games.

    Bluehole, you guys are at the top, so you can chill a bit. Worry less about the competition & focus on your game & how to improve it. This is also calling the kettle black a little, since wasn't PUBG a spin off from H1Z1? Worry not about Fortnite, but be spurred by the fact they needed a boost from you. PUBG can evolve with new ideas too.

    H1Z1 devs could now come back at PUBG devs, Bluehole, demanding satisfaction, then there'd be no end to this at all. Bluehole, do be careful on your throne of good success, we wouldn't want the thorns of a hubris crown to prick you. Just saying, guys.

    Good luck anyway, as I still have gamer love for all of you, who bring me fun games. X^ ^X
