    This is cool. I expect it will be packed out which is fair enough. I had the FFVII soundtrack years back & it is a joy to plug through. Went missing from my stuff though, strangely over the last few years.

    20 years since FFVII, how fast the Epoch & Chrono, fly.

  • FIFA YouTuber who ran illegal gambling site addresses controversy

    Perhaps. Its just that I've been victim of a real scammer before, and know the difference. This guy is on Youtube/Twitch so his face is out there. Not going to excuse his mistake, but I don't think they expected an emergent thing to happen, whoever would? Others did their best to leverage the extra & indeed, should have done something more positive than not.

    Indeed, gambling is regulated but gaming is not, and doing so would be a chore near impossible. As I said while I agree they handles the thing poorly & misled in silly mind, they probably didn't expect it to blow up since it was an 'emergent' thing. Like if you ask for £1 and some give you £10. Indeed they should have done something earlier when it got to attracting a Valve level, but even Gabe had no idea about it, because it was emergent, a first of its kind in a perhaps murky area.

    Also bare in mind that gamer peoples, come in all ages, shapes & gender, so while some may say they did this and that, they might not have added a disclaimer, due to the open nature of gaming communities, who help each other get through games & have fun, than create grief & problems. Us humans make errors & now they've been through an ordeal, enjoy your gaming, but next time disclaimer, big, to the point & bold. Strongly advise that if you are not of the correct rating age, do not play this game. The more you know, the better you'll go.

    A disclaimer would have saved them so much hurt here (I'm not a lawyer but do consult one if you need to). What happened with Fifa/CS etc, was a type of emergent game play, like a game within a game, which no one planned for or could predict, even Valve.

    On top of all of that, online gaming is sector based in tech that both move very fast, than traditional means can keep up with. These guys started their gaming thing with good intention, IMO, but the emergent part got out of hand, when the shower of money got in the way. They were out of depth quickly, and its easy to not know what to do when difficulty arises.

    Think about this. If you're a kid, can you regulate casual game of chance gambling on say an FA Cup game, between students. No, such is not advisable but is impossible to enforce realistically & logistically, either. Now that this mess is over, it might be best all sites like this provide a clear bold disclaimer, before anything takes place. If users below age enter, past three clicks or something, then things would be better. The gambling sector is in parts still struggling with being online, and perhaps it always will, and slower things take time to catch up.

    Get back to playing your Fifa, though gamers...for fun of the game & competition. Have fun, gamers.

  • Resident Evil 7 proves that PSVR can be more than just a novelty

  • SpaceMonkey77 01/02/2017

    Note to Konami, you should get on a Lucky and Wild VR reboot. That would rock. Or Sega Virtue Cop VR, or Namco Time Crisis/Rolling Thunder reboots.

    RE7 has thrown down the VR gauntlet to others, and that games don't have to be about random do stuff in VR instead demo things. Good story & characters can be done with it too.

  • Layoffs at Crytek

  • SpaceMonkey77 01/02/2017

    Its a pity, they are or were a talented dev, but there focus on engine over games led to less actual games being made by them. It would have good to see them make something else outside another Crysis game, and perhaps they expanded to quick with engine focus, in an age of Unity doing it for less. Not sure how many devs were buying their engine for games.

    Going forward, they should slim down and get back to making fun games. Best of luck to them mind and talented people out of a job. I hope some of them can get back in the art of making games as small devs. Good luck.

  • Denuvo responds to lightning quick Resident Evil 7 PC crack

  • SpaceMonkey77 01/02/2017

    Its a fine game, returning to form and all able should play it, but do your best to play from a purchased copy & show those devs some currency love back. Its easy to be tempted to the other side, but overall PC games are cheaper via codes and boxed copies, so there is no need to do this, plus in an age where demos are few, Capcom offered a handsome demo for all to try RE7 out early on, and should be commended for that effort. They didn't have to do that. The DRM part is always difficult, but that should be an evolving part of games

    With regards to VR, sure its a small sector in its relative come back rebooted infancy,now but in time, it will grow to be more. Over the coming years, VR headset will get cheaper and more advanced, the game will improve too, and its clear Capcom want to be at the forefront of that drive. Even if some balk at RE7 console exclusivity, seeing as it has a new engine, that might have cost Capcom so they might have needed some Sony coin.

    Lastly, I'd stress for Capcom share peeps not to worry too much. RE games are a long tail thing & RE7 has only been out for a week. Come back in six month to a year and check the stats. Also remember what was said about RE6 and take with pinch of salt.

  • FIFA 18 brings back The Journey with Season 2

  • SpaceMonkey77 01/02/2017

    I think the Journey concept is a bold one that raises the bar for sport games on top of previous efforts like Fight Night games. If this goes well again, and I expect it will, I think I'd like to see it expanded to other NFL and NHL titles, as it give players an extra impetus and even those who don't usually play sport games, an extra reason to try them out. The icing on the cake is that regular updates of Fifa, now have that tv series box set like effect, where if you miss one, you might be missing out. Offering male/female characters might help later down the line.

    I was pleased for EA, when I recently was listening to a games podcast, and an American guy, who wasn't a Fifa 17 fan at all, jumped in, had a go and enjoyed the game more, because of The Journey. Even if some play it alone offline, then EA has done well. I've not played Fifa 17 myself, but would like to try it out (send me a code if you like EA (^ ^). And its certainly something else to keep Konami and the Pro Evo team, worried about at night.

    Well done, EA.

  • Super Mario Run hits 78m downloads

    F Zero on N64 had a 30 cars on the track. It'd be rad if we could get 15-16 on a Switch/iOS game. No 2d there's been enough of that. 3d is a better. By now we should be able to get both speed and enough players on the track & online play. Reply 0
  • SpaceMonkey77 31/01/2017

    Well I did say it'd move gangbusters right here on EG, and move it did. The potential was always there for it to do well, but I fear that Nintendo's not understanding app store more may have stop all of those 78m from buying it.

    IMO, drop the price to £5-6 for the full game and turn those 78m into full buyers. The price drop would spur more sales. Possibly drop the demo level too, as many will just play that and no more. Also offer a level editor for user created levels for upload & play. Everyone knows its quality already will be good.

    Then get working on F-Zero in the same mobile mold with online play, track editor, Nintendo, over on Switch & mobile. That would rock the mobile world, I have no doubt. AND WE MISS F-ZERO!

    You are but embrace your inner nerd. We only get one life, Brain. Every since I liked games, I've never feared others knowing it, because its a part of who I am, always will be. Don't feel bad, for soap nerds and real car nerds won't, so neither should you.

    Its easy to remember such a trademark Namco character, as few racing games have tried the same thing & its a cool idea for an arcade racing game to bring fans in. I'm actually surprised that Namco haven't put Reiko in the Tekken game series yet too (correct if wrong). If not, now there's a good idea, Namco. Despite the arcades dwindling in recent years, its been good to see them expand onto console & more so PC, where many japanese devs haven't been as confident to enter, but thanks to Steam/GOG, that is changing for the better too.

    And yes, 91 is a good exit age. I hope I get longer on this earth too. Eat well, stress less, exercise & maybe I might be lucky.

    Hmmm, RIP Nakamura san.

    Namco games have been a staple of my gaming for a long time. From recent additions of Pacman Championship Edition on 360 to Ridge Racer many times, Dark Souls, Soul Edge, Time Crisis, Ace Combat, Tales rpg series, Tekken and more. Countless hours of gaming had, even before the merger happened.

    Yeah, I have some RRT4 love too.

    Thanks for the great fun games, awesome game art & music.

    Hey, well done, Capcom. Cool to know that even with a new adjustment from what we were used to before, most gamers enjoyed it. Previously changes to series like DMC or Lost Planet had trouble, so its good to see changes bought RE back to its roots, like Plant 42.

    I'm yet to play it, but its on my cards to do.

  • Dirt 4 is more evidence that Codemasters is back on track

  • SpaceMonkey77 30/01/2017

    Codemasters back! They never really left.

    Like some kind of wizened kung fu sensei, the only show up when they need to, while watching from afar, with their style honed.

    Driving games have made a leap up a bit since from other devs, but the challenge is always good, even for them. Codemasters games have always been of a high quality, with some stutter in gear change. I really enjoy their Grid games, which is a sweet balance between arcadey and sim style driving (more Grid please, CM!). Anyway, will look forward to more Dirt, around the next hairpin.

    @ShiftyGeezer

    Well, I would have liked Switch to run BF1 or CoD, and everything below, but due to the lower spec. I can't hope for that without chops that DICE/EA & Activision won't want to do on their games, and few like gimped/chopped games. If it could run those games with 64 player and a good online service, I'd certainly buy a Switch much faster. I might have to wait for the 2nd iteration of Switch in a few years, perhaps.

  • Ace Combat 7 now coming to PC and Xbox One as well as PS4

  • SpaceMonkey77 27/01/2017

    I enjoyed the PC version of Joint Assault, and the PS3 online free to play Ace Combat Infinity a lot. Looking forward to some crazy g-force defying action. Loved the cool concept planes in the game, and the nods of cool to the Area 88 aerial manga. Glad I'm not the only fan of that cool manga. Pity Infinity didn't come to PC too, as there's not much like it around, unless a serious sim.

    For improvements it would be nice to see two pilots share a jet or bomber, doing different tasks in VR, as that not been done before. Would be cool if they could include helicopters and sea planes to fly too. Best of luck, Namco.

    Damn, I must backtrack and pick up the 360 AC games, before they disappear.

  • SpaceMonkey77 26/01/2017

    This game will be cool, like the Just Cause games but more refined in that GRAW way. Play at your own GRAW personal pace, or do a sweet multiplayer for four times the fun. I don't see it failing & then there will be dlc in the pipe to extend its fun. If you have headsets this game will rock, even more.

    Oh, just to let you know, the previous three GRAW games are available to buy in a pack on PC, more so GRAW1 & GRAW2, which aren't really available anywhere else, even on Steam or GOG, due to the Gamespy shutdown. £10-12 for them is way worth it, especially if you can LAN or set up your own server to play the first two games, as they were fun in multiplay.

    Ghost Recon has always been good fun. I only jumped into its fun with GRAW on 360, and didn't understand how so many people missed out on it. I too love having an NPCs to command or OAVs to utilize to great effect. It can get intense but brilliantly so.

    Looking forward to this open world evolution of GR.
