    @Kami. Hey, well gather a good blanket and warm socks, friend. My predict. Console will be cool. Some game ports from PC to boost it, plus a few new games besides LoZ. Exclusive a mystery, but I'd love a new F Zero and Wave Race. Reply 0

  • Former American football player sues Gears of War dev, claims Cole Train cribs his likeness

  • SpaceMonkey77 13/01/2017

    A bit of a stretch, this one. I don't buy it either. Plus Gears is up to five games out and now, you decide to say this, when Cole Train was only in Gear 1-3. In such character creation, I expect The Train, is a mish mash of ....well go and read the Gears of War art book to find out. Nothing to see here, time to move along. Reply +1
  • Scalebound cancellation won't end Xbox projects with other studios, but games may be shown later

  • SpaceMonkey77 12/01/2017

    Major disappointment in its cancellation too, but plenty of other games to play. Scalebound would have give XB1 more variety, and they may need that next to Sony exclusives in the pipe. Reply +1
  • Rocket League player count soars past 25m

  • SpaceMonkey77 12/01/2017

    That's cool. Always good & pleasing to see a small dev strike their own golden success. A simple concept well executed & fun for many. Its also good to see, that while long time veterans of Fifa and Pro Evo love those games, they'll also try Rocket League out too.

    Some envious of them, may find it hard to say nice things, so well done & congratulations, Psyonix. A Switch version isn't such a bad idea, that such wouldn't surprise me at all to eventually be ported over, likely with its first year.

  • Yakuza 0 is a great way to get into Sega's outstanding series

  • SpaceMonkey77 12/01/2017

    Each to their own and get this if its for you. I wish Sega could be as ambitious with other games, as they have been with this one. If as much effort went into another Street of Rage 4 or Burning Rangers 2 game, they'd have my attention. Yakuza is by now with improved visual an PS2 game, but it may keep its fans happy and that's all it needs to do. Reply +2
  • Sea of Thieves devs explain how its design encourages cooperation

  • SpaceMonkey77 11/01/2017

    I liked the look of this game from way back when. having watched some vids of it, hat worried me about it is the lack of character personalities. A game like Overwatch is bristling each character having their own personality, but then I look at Sea of Thieves, that needs that same character sparks, and I don't see it and they seem dry of any character (which might be okay in a Zelda game, but a co-op one could use such). I hope by the launch they get it right, because it still looks like a fun game. Reply -1

  • Sources: Microsoft and Platinum part ways on Scalebound, development ceased

  • SpaceMonkey77 10/01/2017

    MS needed this game to help diversify their line up. Perhaps it was just badly managed. Oh well, still got State of Decay 2 to look forward to. Reply 0
  • SpaceMonkey77 09/01/2017

    Well, that's a big pity. Was looking forward to this game a lot, more so on PC. I think that Platinum may have taken on more extra outsourced work, which burnt them out to quickly. It was worrying when we got Avatar, TF:D and TMNT, in what seemed like too quick a turnover time. Hope it can eventually find its way to the finish line, somehow. Reply +1

  • NES Mini hacked, extra games added via USB

  • SpaceMonkey77 09/01/2017

    @GoingPostal13

    Pity they couldn't see the bigger possible vision. Nintendo could have flicked the NES catalog for a $1/$2 per game via their store and still done well off of this mini console. Do the same for SNES and I'll be all over that, like rice in a paddy field restaurant menu. Room to learn from this for Switch, still.

  • Fans think McDonald's new Mario toy features plumber on the toilet

  • SpaceMonkey77 09/01/2017

    Me thinks, some gamers are overthinking their brains in the gutter.

    Mario in Shine Get pose might have been better, while I can see the humor in a plumber that does no plumbing at all, unless you count Pipedream.

  • In Theory: Can AMD Ryzen break the Intel CPU monopoly?

  • SpaceMonkey77 08/01/2017

    I think its good to see AMD back in the game, but they should have kept their presence around gamers better over the years. I've never had an AMD system because of fan boy like compatibility issues that caused a rift in gaming long ago. With Intel it just works and I'm okay with that. We need not another dumb game schism via PC CPU/GPUs, again. Reply -1

  • Overwatch webcomic not released in Russia over gay character

  • SpaceMonkey77 21/12/2016

    Nothing to worry about. Who wants this Overwatch web comic will find & read it.

    Say, how about those books on Alexander the Great, good aren't they? No, just more propaganda. Alan Turing books on WWII code breaking? No, just more propaganda too.

    Silly indeed, but we can't absolutely expect everyone to be bright light bulbs of positive progress, change & acceptance of others.

  • SpaceMonkey77 20/12/2016

    Oh dear, this stuff is never nice. A pity because while they do cool engines, I feel they got caught up in trying to become a super publisher, taking on more talent but making less actual games. Games gamers want, and big or small they make coin. Even if they made one or two games a year, plus their engine, they might have been in better shape.

    All the best to those out in the world, once more, and hopefully some new small indie devs will be born from this outcome. Man, what an xmas present.

  • Nintendo Switch CPU and GPU clock speeds revealed

  • SpaceMonkey77 20/12/2016

    Well, give it time, it'll have good games anyway and its only a few weeks out from launch. Despite the spec, regular hardware updates and tweaks might be the order of the day. Its still something more positive to work with, than Wii U (while granted that had some cool games), so for that change alone, I'd like one, but I won't expect it to have the reach of PS4/XB1/PC. Reply +1
  • SpaceMonkey77 19/12/2016

    Interesting spec, but I expected some cutbacks, somewhere. Despite this though, I'd still be more encouraged to get a Switch, whether at launch or further down the line via an updated version. Will give them a chance to shine still, so best of luck with it, anyway, and I bet that it'll still be a success for Nintendo and Nvidia. Meryy xmas and new year too. X Reply 0
  • Super Mario Runs past Pokémon GO's download record

  • SpaceMonkey77 20/12/2016

    Yep, as I said it would be. Congrats. I'm a big believer in that a good game should transcend all formats if possible, for better reach and more return, and while many fought against this kind of game from Nintendo, outside of their traditional walled garden, its a big welcome and commendable step for them, and that's before the Android version is out too. I also hope that Nintendo consider Super Mario Run level editor, to lever things better for Android and iOS.

    No, I haven't played SMR yet, as my iOS device is too old, but one day I'll hopefully get to play it. May seek the android version later. I really hope after this rakes in much for them, that Nintendo think about the same for other games like F-Zero.

    Someone said something about a Steam version of SMR, hey, I'm sure many gamers would eat it up there too. Certainly something to consider, Nintendo, if iOS (and in time Android) sales continue to do well?

  • Ubisoft executives fined €1.2m for alleged insider trading

  • SpaceMonkey77 10/12/2016

    Well, this is sad to hear about, I guess we've not heard the last of this, as more of Ubi is cobbled up by those who perhaps care less about games. I hope things work out better in days ahead. Reply 0
  • SpaceMonkey77 10/12/2016

    The funny thing about this is, when Ubisoft said at past E3, to buy stocks and stave off a potential takeover, very few gamers actually listened to them. If they lose their way, in future & upcoming games past 2017 they could end up worse or some stuff be canceled, if they are indeed taken over, which would no doubt upset everyone. Sure, insider stuff isn't right, but I sense they are battling to stay more independent, than not. Reply +1
  • Super Mario Run only playable with an internet connection

  • SpaceMonkey77 10/12/2016

    Such exists in all kinds of ways in the world, but such is also minimal, with the rise of games being more digital. The benefits of SMR's potential gain, vastly outweigh its pitfalls. Anything ever conceived, made and sold has some losses, but give it time and I hope this move doesn't spoil a cool looking game. Indeed, its always better to buy what you love most and many will for this game, thus I can't wait to see those SMR numbers by new year, which will be high still, I hope.

    In contrast, MS know that Windows was vastly copied & used in China & Russia via XP, previously, and smartly via W8/W10, MS won much of those potential people into users through the timed free upgrade, showing that it does well to nurture better ways, than not. A work of forward thinking genius and no mistake, W8/10 does okay and W7 is a good back up alternative. In time I hope Nintendo can think more like this too. I know both are very different in mind and view of things, though and I doubt know everything.

    Once SMR is out, I may try the iOS version if my old i-contraption will run it (doubt it will). For Android, I still think that having Steam, instead of Google store for games, which has always seemed like a side hustle to Google, would be better for all Android gamers and game devs alike, and help sales of games a lot more.

    Lastly, one thing Nintendo should seriously consider later for this SMR game, than having to be online to play, is the magic of a level editor, similar to that of Mario Maker (which is not on iOS/Android. If there's one thing, that would keep gamers happier and coming back for more of SMR, it would be the ability to create and upload user created levels, to share with others, globally. Tie this level editor option to the SMR game, along with competitions and such, and if not a legit copy, withhold this option and its obvious greater scale it could have on gamers. Mario Maker, no doubt found some good, creative types out there, and more could be found yet, via SMR, so use that as best you can. Good luck for launch, ahead.

    I think its also up to Android to do something about it. Its great to have an open source system, but some upkeep security for games and aps, should be part of its OS design. PC is open source, but Steam still managed to get a foot hold via Valve, and now its that place that most PC games are sold through, while other options exist. Would it possibly be better to just have Steam on mobile, than just the Google store that few use? Perhaps then Android might be taken more seriously and match iOS while such will be vastly reduced. What do others think? Steam is also growing in China, from what I hear, and Nintendo need a piece of that pie.

    Due to the online not mobile nature, I'll give this game a wait, until reviews of it drop next week.

    Its okay for them to be protective of their game, but out of water from their original systems walled garden, is positive progress. sure, but will take them time to get used to. When Sega decided to step out of console, onto PC in order to bounce back, it too took them time to adjust, but adjust in time they did are gladly are still around and doing well. Nintendo need that same chance, to see that while there are few stalfos and moblins in the wider open world, there is also great beauty & it is indeed worth climbing over the wall and venturing out beyond. Once this SMR game has been out for a few months, they'll hopefully see, that there's less to fear and seek some help, that's less dividing from those who can help.

    I still think it'll do well for Nintendo, but this option, if too harsh, might still born SMR, and generate ill will among gamers, only few months before Switch is due to release and badly needs us. iOS will be okay, but I see their concern about Android versions, but its also up to them to seek solutions to that issue, that few have managed to fix. Perhaps Nintendo might want to talk to the Pokemon Go devs, and see how they handle their iOS and Android versions, to avoid such issues. Its okay to have fears, but too much, and no one might play your game at all, so tread wisely, for gamers have many other options for fun. All the best for Dec 15th to you, SMR and Nintendo.

    Your Mario RPG point, I had forgotten about, as I never got around to importing that gem back on SNES, so thank for the reminder. Does show that some ways of them doing things, have been weird for a long time.

    Here's an idea, Nintendo. If you want offline protection, go speak to Kaspersky or other such people and they'd work with you on making your game/s stronger, without need for what is pretty much, paid online play for SMR. Reply +4

    I think that in Japan, this will work well with the cell infrastructure, and maybe some other metropolitan places too. Thing is that the game will be good and fun, and once tied to an account, there should be less trouble, but the concept of a good account is one that has eluded Nintendo, which I hope we all get improved on Switch. On most phone services, this shouldn't be a problem, but tablets I couldn't say about.

    With tablets too, Nintendo should have an account, through which their games are bought & played through, and where a handshake should happen especially for any updates or dlc. High score leaderboards alone may be enough to draw gamers back regularly and if no real game, then no real dlc levels, competitions and more. Despite this, the game will be a success anyway. Always online, may provide a possibly more fractured experience for gamers than usual, but best of luck with it.

    Two steps forward, one step back, Nintendo.

  • Steep review

  • SpaceMonkey77 09/12/2016

    Due to its online nature like The Division, its possible it might need tweaking over a period of time, to get right. Perhaps it needs things like regular online contests, loot drops, challenges and competitions and such in order to keep gamers playing. Play some Burnout, 1080 Snowboarding & Pilotwings for tips, be sure to reward the player for doing things well, via onscreen prompt or voice, hell, throw in crazy weather, PvP races, online rivalry, ghost racer dlc and a crazy snow based story mode based on a mash of Cliffhanger, James Bond and The Thing. Give it time. I heard DJ Atomika is available, with no new Burnout on the horizon. A good soundtrack matters here too.

    Note, I haven't played the game but would like to.

    @heligo

    Well, IMO, the watershed while nice for some in idea, was always an illusion to keep some safe, who don't go to bed, but the advent of the VCR back in the 70/80's, long kicked such a concept into touch donkeys years ago, along with portable tvs, while some pretended it mattered still. The rise of the internets and mobiles, put a nail in that coffin with earth six feet under. Few kids watch tv when their shows are online, 24/7 without having to fight for a tv remote and small time slot. Youtube, you either have an account or you don't, the former giving you greater access. Its better that they not have an account, or less get full slap of the YT.

    I don't think PDP, ever went into being on YT, to manage himself for age groups, and more so he probably done so, in order to connect with gamers of a similar demo to him, but got more instead (ask him if you must). I couldn't give you the solution, friend, but kids these days, will grow with these tubes, over time (do your best to hold them back, as our parents once did to us, mind, horse to water and all). Were there any similar YT shows, with filtered stuff, such would only keep gamers attention for so long, perhaps and have a smaller amount of users. Also and always bare in mind, we are always ageing, so what might have began tamer at first, might later change a little, so be warned. Of course, do what you need to do, for you and yours.

    Thus is the trouble with fame, its double edged, can do well for you but also can hurt you back. He's had a lot of love, but probably some awful hater types too, and its those types that can steal your love, gradually, if you let them. Hopefully, via his sub elsewhere or other, he can do better still. At the end of a the day, he's a regular gamer like many of us, and like many with reason, I'd not want to see his passion for games dry up or poor health, due to the few dregs of humanity haters online. Good luck to him, anyway. Reply 0
  • SpaceMonkey77 09/12/2016

    Only other way I can see him going from Youtube, would be via his own site, as some have done after the Youtube bot got crazy on takedown vids, previously and YT policy changes. This hurt a lot of tubers who were doing okay, and the likes of Twitch can cater to gaming too now. Reply +2
  • SpaceMonkey77 09/12/2016

    Well, if that's what he wants, but with those kinds of fans, he'll probably just start another channel than the one he's on, like Youtube Red. A lot of games feeds would love those numbers, indulging in all he has. Some may frown on him and his success (that ol' envious streak), but he has something many gamers want and need. He's not my go to for games coverage, but each to their own. Good luck to him, whatever he decides to do. Indeed, some established tv stations would love those kinds of numbers too, but unfortunately can't offer what Youtube does, 24/7/365. Reply +3
