  • Overwatch has over 15m players worldwide

  • SpaceMonkey77 05/08/2016

    @vast

    Haven't played Overwatch, so can only go by news and others info. I have been playing TF2 for many years though, and it still stands well, as well as the additional modes added to it. Perhaps my view is a one sided view.

    That's cool for a new game, but will it ever top TF2? Probably not, but then it really doesn't have to, as a number two spot is sweet enough in that fps sub-genre. Reply -17

  • New licences and a new feistiness see PES take the fight to FIFA

  • SpaceMonkey77 04/08/2016

    Good to see the games are getting better, but the license stuff should just be shared, so that gamers can get on with playing one or both games.

    I guess Konami have to raise their Pro Evo game, with no MGS on the cards soon. Don't know of anything else they have in the dev pipe.

  • CSGO Lounge seeks gambling licence in bid for legitimacy

  • SpaceMonkey77 03/08/2016

    You guys and gals are missing/over shooting the moon with your rocket ships. Valve are doing their part to respond to a new and difficultly emergent use of games thing, but overall, its a bit of a shady grey area, that Valve were caught off guard by. Why?

    Because of how U.S laws about on/offline gambling are tweaked in favor of bricks and mortar gambling dens and casinos, than online, and thus most of the U.S is trapped in a kind of modern gambling dark ages, with regards to such and no firm online stuff set in stone. That's why these guys are now applying for a gambling license, to get better, even though they know such stuff regarding online gambling should have been sorted out. I agree that they should have had done this thing better, but they are dumb (or maybe not so dumb) silly gamers with a clever game angle, not seasoned gambling moguls, who would have thought this stuff out better, ticked I's and crossed t's.

    The only way this could ever be really sorted out is via such U.S gambling law means, but as we've seen to date, and what recently happened with Draft Kings (go look it up, if you must), offline established means is way behind the rapidly advancing online means (this is why some leave the U.S to do their online gambling thing, go and watch that Affleck movie, Runner Runner for an idea). The real fight for some, is to stop much gambling moneys from leaving U.S shores, but due to the global nature of where the future of gambling will ultimately be, that's a difficult one to maintain, forever. (also research U.S on/offline gambling for a better picture) Dare I say it, but some are fighting a losing battle, that time and tide will correct, once the old gambling industry guard, naturally expire.

    Adjust, correct and clarify U.S online gambling laws/red tape and stuff like this certainly would not be happening. I don't live there and only know so much, thanks.

    As for the associations of EG with such gaming people, that's up to them. EG also schmooze with many who fleece us for over priced DLC, or have done shady stuff via crowdfunding, pre-orders (my fave dose of shady) or other anti-consumer practices. Whether gamers buy it or not, is up to them. Truth be told, there is an element of shade in all industries, since there has been industry, at all. Some see it, other don't or choose not to, so long as they get what they want.

    Also next time CSGO:L and co, age verification goes a long way, while they might not have intend for such, or for things to get as crazy as they now are.

  • Overwatch Olympic Games Rio loot boxes spotted with limited edition skins

  • SpaceMonkey77 03/08/2016

    A good deal for Blizzard.

    I feel mixed on the Olympics. Many poor folk being displaced and possibly made homeless in order to host this for two weeks.

    For Rio, I just hope that they have a rehousing/rebuilding plan in place for their people, after all the spectacle of the sports is over and done. Hopefully, (and this is a big hope) it could change Rio for the better, gradually getting rid of its slums, for better infrastructure and development, if done well and given back to its people.

    But of course, that's just my view. I don't live there or know all of what goes on there.

    I'll throw the question open an ask what do you consider a good, non super hero action film in the last 15 years?

  • SpaceMonkey77 02/08/2016

    Wish you guys had a bit more faith. Of all recent games to film adaptions, AC upcoming aside, this one has the highest potential to work out. A near future dystopian action tale with its own twists and turns. If done in the mold of recent films like Triple Nine, (Ronin, too) or The A-Team, its hard to go wrong with it.

    On top of that, beyond big blockbuster superhero films, the action film is kind of having a tough time of it, IMO (or am I wrong on that?). Something different is needed, than the multi-star mash of The Expendables, this could be it and deserves a chance to do its thing. Good writers and directors and it can do well.

    Loved the look of this since E3. Added to wish list and I'm glad its a good one. Also very nice to see such a single player game doing well, when we've become so multiplayer focused to date. And something very zen and chill, from all the shooty bangs, we play.

    Out of Batman TT and this, and with No Man Sky also due soon its tough call, which to buy.

    Those are the breaks, in times difficult. Best to wait a year and knock some off that price via deals. Good that its out though, so some will have a cool xmas.

    Don't stress the exit thing too much. The U.K will weather it and correct in the next four years, IMO.

    As for others, now I see that the unhappy people from further north in the U.K, bought about the exit, I kind of understand why they might feel the hurt in the U.K. Take a look at the maps of the U.K across time or talk to others from there. I used to think that it was the weather, that stopped expansion north, but I don't know much about it.

    Besides that, my experience with northern english folk has always been positive and fun, even though I'm from the south.

    So long as video games have existed, there are those who break and jump the release date gun, since it became a thing, to not sell a game, before a certain date.

    Its best to wait and discover the game yourselves and not let others spoil it for you. Some reviews should be dropping online soon anyway, too. The choice of each gamer, is yours to make or not.

  • In Theory: Could NX bring Wii and GameCube games to Virtual Console?

  • SpaceMonkey77 01/08/2016

    @barryr1285

    I don't think its EG looking for clicks friend, while all sites need traffic respectfully.

    Its been a while since we've had the launch of a new console thing, so it natural to want to know more about it and get excited, with a few months to go, and the big reveal by Nintendo should be coming up real soon. When that happens, every site will be dropping the details, anyway. We only just had everyone go nuts of Pokemon Go! and that was only a third, Nintendo's, while doing well.

    Perhaps the big reveal will come around TGS time in September from Nintendo (Oct, Nov and December are far too busy, IMO), because I know from previous experience, stores and warehouse have to start pre-orders, shipping and stocking up on these things far in advance of actual launch date, or risk huge shortages and delays.

    We all love games here, so talking about them when not playing them is the next best thing. And because of Nintendo's secretive nature, we love talking about them even more today, because overall, we still want them to be around tomorrow and beyond.

  • PS Vita hacked: full system access enabled for homebrew

  • SpaceMonkey77 01/08/2016

    @benjohn

    It differs per person. Some gamers are more about preservation, playing and learning from of old games, where others aren't picking up the slack for it.

    While other gamers are about diving into the seas of code, fiddling and hacking to see what else can be done with hardware, that is nearing abandonment, if not there already.

    A lot of old systems, still get use today due to this kind of stuff, and otherwise, would be sent off to the big tech wasteland, probably somewhere on African shores. You don't want to hear the tales of what happens to perfectly good working consoles when they die and are no longer needed by sellers that stock them. Many just end up in a landfill, and that's a huge waste of resources, that we should be doing our best to avoid.

    Many gamers could naturally wait for old games to get re-released and such, but the likelihood for many old games (like much aged and forgotten media) is next to none. What each gamer does then is purely their call. Its not ideal at all and surely has vast room for improvement.

    A parting thought. Once NX is out in six months, and a new iOS devices due in September (at time of writing), it will again put Vita in more of a fix, as a gaming option. Sony don't seem to want to fix, update or talk of it so, Vita's future is in doubt.

    The handheld space is one in transition. While as you know the tech specs improve, it still has a tactile control problem, that's yet to be standardized beyond touch means.

    If Nintendo can help fix it that's great, but there are so many devices out there to cover. Many will just settle for hooking up a home console controller, via wi-fi instead, which is more of an option with W10 and other Android tablets out, open to support.

    A Vita is a nice alternative, though. With a large card, can enjoy all those long forgotten classics of games.

    Guess it was bound to happen sooner or later, as Sony have more of less dropped the ball on it, with more PS4/VR focus.

    Nice, but I think I'll pass. I'm not really for this pushing of certain people to be in front of games, just because.

    One of the things I like most about games, is that fans find their own voice, where they don't have to be on tv, just be passionate and knowledgeable about games, which cuts through any crap fast. I also feel that most gamers want something deep, thought provoking and meaningful about games, so many years on, like we get shows about film, music or books, than more shallow challenges or similar for fun times.

    Games deserve better, but I guess some will have to look online for such.

    Enjoy it if its for you, though.

  • Counter-Strike: GO event pulled from German TV after Munich attack

    @WilhelmvonOrmstein

    Its only games because its a young medium, who many that move in traditional media circles might understand or take part in less. The perception is maintained by some that games are for kids, when games are part of the human experience, via video or not, across hundreds of years.

    You also make an interesting counter point, which is that when some are ...... elsewhere, we might not see such wider coverage, all over the place, if we are told at all, than if something happens, closer to home. That's how some news coverage works. All lives are precious, or should aim to be so.

    I'm doing my best to check out of news watching, as there's just something negative, awful and fear pushing, every other day, that its just kind of soul destroying and depressing. And that kind of stuff doesn't do my creativity and imagination well, at all. But that's just me.

  • NX is different, and different is Nintendo's best option

  • SpaceMonkey77 28/07/2016

    As a gaming tab, NX might do okay, until its perhaps superseded by others.

    In the long run, a Nintendo going third party, wouldn't at all be bad. Games can be conceived, made and sold with ease, and if they went totally digital, they'd could possibly be vastly cutting their costs, with no consoles to construct or games to print. This might diminish their real world high street presence though, which they probably like a lot, to do their sales thing.

    Ł100-150 at launch for NX (plus a free game), wouldn't be bad to get many interested, from casual/core gamers and beyond.

    Don't know about bliss, friend. Game prices stayed high and fewer games were bought by gamers as a result. On top of that, devs vastly disliked being stung by cart licensing costs. We don't need those days back, but we do need other means, that free devs to make what they want to make, without compromising too much.

    Indeed, doing your own thing is fine when you are in the lead, but those days have long since been dust, since Playstation, then later entered the market and more change with Xbox too.

    I too haven't given Nintendo solid support since GC. Enjoy that console a lot and felt they were on the right track with it. Feeling the need to be different they went with Wii, and while that did well for them, it wasn't for me. I've waited for them to get back to core games, for ages.

    All of the concerns you noted I also have, and waiting for them to catch up, I have plenty of other games and stuff to do, while I wait. I do feel as someone else said, lack of AAA games on Nintendo systems over the years has been slow and torturous and keeps many away to date. I love their Nintendo games, but I can't invest in a console that lacks and struggles for games to grace it. Done too much of that on N64, GC before and its a form of gaming hell, IMO.

    Seven months to go and we'll find out more of what it can actually do. I'm still, excited though.

    Tech specs are the reality of devs everyday, who need them to make games. Its easy for gamers to dismiss them, because they don't want to think about what it takes to make games they enjoy.

    Many here have said for a long time, give us a system that can run as much games as possible, plus Nintendo games, and this is Nintendo's reply. Whether its enough, we'll know in time. I'd be tempted after Nvidia Shield.

  • SpaceMonkey77 27/07/2016

    It will find its place, as for the games, we'll see. Due to the game media being on cards, I'm not sure that's going to make games more expansive like and PC and other consoles, and especially since average game size continues to increase.

    Proprietary media is always going to sting devs and keep them at bay, with Vita as a recent casualty, and when many devs can make a game and put it out on Steam, PSN, XBL and others with ease and lower costs. Those cool Steam sales we all like, and that helps us play more games than less, its unlikely we'll ever see such on NX either. It could still work out, and Nintendo can also learn that sales, need not be a dirty word.

    @Diablo13

    Dude, I hear you. It was always my greatest fear, but despite that, some positive change is still good for them at Nintendo, through ditching that aged ass Power PC tech, that was long, long overdue retirement. Surprised it took them so long, but still this change and getting in bed with Nvidia are positive.

    However...

    @grassyknoll

    You could be right that it might also possibly work out for Nintendo. Both Sony and MS do tablets but they are expensive, while still good. There's room for Nintendo to slip into this space, and take a slice for themselves. Once the first units sold are out in the wild, Nintendo can still plan updated versions later on.


    In the end, like anything in our games sphere, its all going to hang on the game support. Can they gain back much more dev support that they've lacked, previously? Its already in a positive zone, through Power PC going alone, so they might work out to be in better health already, and for Nintendo in a few years time. Nvidia's great PC know how and tech, will help Nintendo navigate a field that's been alien to them for many years, while welcoming more devs from PC games.


    Overall, I'm still excited, while a little scared, but I wish them well. LoZ should be good to help push its pre-orders and launch, and hopefully they'll have other sweet games to back it up, and maintain interest. Bridging tablet and PC/Nintendo games might also be a smart but tough move, than chasing Sony and MS for a lucrative but dwindling console space, possibly on borrowed time besides (hence the upcoming MS Scorpio, and PS4 Neo, also looking great, but leaning more towards PC, because as we all know, the PC is a constant gaming gardener, and PC ages like a fine wine, for the most gaming palettes as possible.


    Don't feel down, gamers. Its good to see something else new, and weirdly, I'm actually more optimistic for Nintendo's NX fortunes, much more than I ever was for Wii/Wii U or 3DS, and I've been one of their harshest critics in the past years, something many Nintendo die hard fans, have beat me up for. Now, IMO, things are more set to be more positive for Nintendo.

  • SpaceMonkey77 26/07/2016

    Now after walking away and thinking about it, this might actually work. A powerful Nintendo/Shield like tablet, with games on sd style cards, and possible download too. If there's space to install games that would be a bonus. Gaming tablet with mushroom power.

    Only concerns are onboard/game media storage and those controllers. The former as 21st century games are kinda large.

    Will look forward to learning more of it, anyway.

    When I heard of rumors of going back to cartridge media, that filled me with real worry and still does. I can agree that while they like that license cart money of old days, I really don't see many devs wanting to jump back into that eco-sphere, that could limit games. And while I'm all for something new, Nintendo still failing to adopt disc media of dvd and Blu Ray, is very concerning.

    Those disc media options vastly reduce costs for devs and build dev support more, not the other way around. In 2016/7, 32gb is already a certain size for a game, anything larger and devs will be paying double the cost, to get games out there. If the games are intended to be digital only, devs might have a chance, as with Steam, but I doubt they will be, due to Nintendo's big store branding and name.

    Now, I'm mixed on it knowing more. NX might work out for them, but the mobile and home console spaces are too different beasts of night and day, and trying to cover both, like this could be....well let's wait and see. All I can say is that its going to be a hard sell, next to rival systems from Sony and MS rolling out big, in the new year, but with the right games, might stake a small claim, be it a small one.

    EA valued the NFS more than the arcade fun of Burnout. After buying Criterion, things went down hill, Criterion's impressive Renderware engine was retired to the dusty EA vaults, never to be seen again.

    NFS is a cool game especially Hot Pursuit, but it was never Burnout. It was a mistake to sideline Burnout and focus on NFS, completely. And when EA did hear the Burnout requests from fans, they gave us a cheap 2d crash game instead.

    The other big problem is EA chasing big car deals to feature in the games, when that's not really what gamers were stressing about. With those deals, come the issue of not being able to crash in game car assets, thus no recent Burnout game at EA, and NFS not doing so well.

    This could be the best news of the month, if not the year. Here's some of what I'd like to see.

    -Bring back traffic checking/avoidance/take downs, all with an on/off play option.
    -Single player with multiplayer extra as option this time, not the main dish.
    -And this time don't forget the crash stunt options, either, please.
    -Maybe no licensed cars. We car make our own, so maybe a mod car editor feature might also be cool.
    -Track/crash mode editor allowing creations for challenge by players and upload to others.
    -Open world and/or classic track options. (the latter, personally)
    -New possible feature in race teams and leagues. This might aid a Rocket League style means, of on/offline play. This could allow stuff like tag team racing/stunt game play, for mad points and achievos.
    -I almost forgot, bring back the crazy, wise cracking DJ Atomica, also with an on/off option.
    -Radio Stations like GTA (might be asking much, perhaps), for switchable tracks while playing, and/or just the basic music options, improved.

    More along the lines of Takedown and Revenge, please and hopefully in a nicer game engine.

    I don't understand the math either, and we can't be in their loop, only see from outside. What I do know is games more. CoD on Wii U, shows that gamers do want those games on a Nintendo system, and are hella grateful when they get them. Wouldn't it be better to make that the norm again, more games than less? Such would involve a better console though. If NX gets CoD:IW, it'll be interesting to see how it runs.

    Not necessarily, PC has been chugging along nicely despite consoles being popular and will survive for gens to come for gaming and more. Even though the rise of tablets has put a dent in PC sales, they can never take over the huge amount of things a PC can do along with gaming. Tablet/phone is a consumption device, while a PC is a machine for consumption and creation.

    The best part about PC, is that long after many games come and go on consoles, gamers can still play them on PC, sometimes modding and vastly extending their lives. A game like TF2, wouldn't happen on console, until Overwatch and others arrived.

    Its not non-sensical. If you make a car with four wheels and an engine, it can compete with other cars with four wheels and an engine. Make a car with three wheels and a wee engine, and you are setting yourself up for a fall, stall or crash.

    Nintendo have been making home consoles with three wheels for ages post GC (IMO), making it a hard sell for many gamers to date, while their games have still been fun. Requesting a PS4 grade of console can be done, but they still don't want to spend the coin for such or make a loss. That's up to them. I'll be elsewhere playing other games, as I only have so much time to wait on them to get with the program. The coming of cross platform play may be on the horizon, and Nintendo might be left out of that too.

    NX is a step in the right direction, but will also turn many off, who need a base unit to play their games.

  • The Division movie may co-star Jessica Chastain - report

    This is going to be cool and a good cast helps. A dystopian near futuristic tale with a cool twist. All it needs is a good writer and some wicked action, and it should do okay, with few action movies out there. Two or three hours of this world, would be cool.

    Ubisoft using their licenses for film, this way is very smart, and can gain more funds to help put back into game development. AC is looking fun already. Hitman had two previously, but they earned only so much, so a change up was needed. The Division is a good one to gamble on, as there's also little like it out there.

  • Nintendo NX is powered by Nvidia Tegra technology

    The megaton drops at last.

    My thoughts. Going with Nvidia Tegra line is a good move and a nice clean break from the Power PC stuff that had long hamstrung them. Loss of BC is a worthy price for progress, in a world where Nintendo were seeming less relevant with each passing day. Glad to see that's not the case, but illusion. So far so good. As for the unit itself, we'll have to wait and see.

    The rest, we'll have to wait a few more weeks for, as I expect we should know more at least six months before release date. Already like the information I'm hearing so far. And if they can get a Tegra X2 in it before launch, that bodes well too.

    Roll on TGS, please.
