  • What the hell is Gamechurch?

  • SpaceMonkey77 10/10/2014

    My exposure to the church was also at a young age. I hated sunday school, because I could have been out playing like kids should be, but was forced to go.

    As I grew and began to question the world, it was no longer a place for the free thinkers of the world. I cashed in my chips and stopped going.

    If you have religion in your life, you are likely to not asks the testing questions others might ask, like myself. One of my favorites is what happened to Jesus when he became and adult and disappeared for a few years? Such an important piece of his tale, edited or missing.

    Hey, love the Black Jesus picture whoever posted it. If real ol' Jesus were like him, he'd be everyone's buddy. We need Black Jesus on U.K tv.

    Also true, but religious people also tried to shut down the printing press and reproduction of the bible to the masses. I will agree with you about the King James Bible helping the spread of english and reading in places where people could not before.

    A multi-faceted diamond or rights and wrongs it is, religion.

    Yes, after holding science back for so long, cause we couldn't have others thinking above and outside of their station in life.

    That was the great lurking fear of the elites, popes and kings. Common people learning, knowing stuff and doing other things, instead of keeping people stupid and under control of religion and the rich.

    @TPoppaPuff

    Again I'll disagree with you on that one. Religion has some positive aspects that can be promoted and use without it, but underneath everything is promotion of the message.

    You might say to me, Jesus lived and I'd agree with you on that. When you start speaking about some all seeing eye being, you lost me totally. Like I said, might as well be praying to Santa Claus or aliens. Just as lofty and nebulous.

    Look whats going on in some parts of the world because of hard core religious nuts warped thinking. If you can honestly say we are better with religion, when blood is being spilled, that's your view but I'd disagree. I say its better for people to think for themselves than be guided anyone anywhere.

    I'm no communist, I just think there has to be a better way than what we have. Some fear change so we'll never see an alternative.

    If you are gay/bi/trans etc, good for you. Do your thing and be happy, as you aren't hurting anyone. If you want to have an abortion, that's your baggage and your business alone, and what you decide should not be questioned or ridiculed. your life, Its your decisions and consequences, no one elses. Some religions might poorly say....otherwise.

    Good for them but I don't do religion. Its the cause of much strife and division in the world, so I opt out, choosing a non religious path of my own.

    With church attendance rock bottoming over the years, I get and commend his bending to more original ways of attracting flock, that most churches wouldn't even consider. At the same time it also seem kind of well meaning but insidious.

    What happens when I ask about creationism, or why Jesus is portrayed as a white guy yet was from the middle east, and why the church still pushes that blue eyed lie. Everything could fall apart quickly with no answers and you make an exit shouting ''Taxi!''.

    Games as a kind of recruitment drive should be frowned upon, be it for religion or government services like say military service etc. Sure, its nice to belong to a group, but try to remember where you end and they begin.

    Don't believe the hype, people, religion is a bogus racket that might as well be for Santa Claus. Instead, believe in your kin folk, but ultimately in yourself. The sooner more people do, the better people will be.

    That's my view and its okay for you to disagree with me, mind.

  • Microsoft's indie parity clause exists so Xbox One owners feel "first class"

  • SpaceMonkey77 10/10/2014

    There's no need for this parity chuff, and its another reason why MS need to change that. All it will do is scare smaller devs away to PC and PS4. Yeah, exclusives are nice but people just want to play games.

    Live Gold and its media options are enough for many to be attracted to use Xbone.

    Maybe its time for devs to rally to get this dumb clause shut down. They want your games, with hold them until they see sense. March in the streets etc, if you must.

    Also with regards to retail units as dev kits, maybe you should hit MS up about that too. Its important if they want the industry to grow.

  • Unity reportedly up for sale

  • SpaceMonkey77 09/10/2014

    @cw

    Thanks for correcting me. Haven't been to the site in a while. Sign of the times I guess. Maybe its not working out for them.

    With your other post, I thought Unity was free to dl and use, but if you created a game with it and put it up for sale, you then paid for a full license or something to kickback cash their way. Again, correct if I'm misled.

    If Unity goes for that awful subscription model, that will be a dark day too. That's nice if you can afford it, but the whole point of Unity is that many can't. Lets hope things stay the way they are, or reasonable adjusts are made. Reply +1
  • SpaceMonkey77 09/10/2014

    A sour taste in mouth. Unity have done well being free (and yet paid if you sell your game. Perhaps they could avoid this buy just charging a 10-15 for it. If they make it cheap enough many would still invest in it. Selling Unity lock stock and barrel, IMO wouldn't be a great idea as its going to compromise small devs the most, who are already not cash strapped.

    Would hate if Activision purchased it, but that's unlikely as they have their own engines already. Nintendo would be a terrible steward so no there too. Google could buy but I dislike them getting more money for nothing. Selling to Valve and Steam would be a great idea, as they could offer the most flexibility and eyes to buy Unity might need.

    Dark days. Without Unity, being a small dev seems bleak. Come what may.

    As the exclusives build more will buy Xbone and frankly second place isn't always a bad position to be in, as it gives them room to learn and adjust. MS will be nibbler at it than Sony were on PS3, though. I still recall the 360 year lead had Sony scrambling to keep up, a tough thing for a japanese company.

    MS want to be number one again with Xbone and its going to be interesting to see them fight back to earn it again. Everyone loves a fight.

    Failing the format skirmishes at EG and other online battlefields, which can be amusing at times as they can be annoying at others, I still say that its best to buy both PS4 and Xbone if you can afford them (with PC as a nice back up.

    @nesetersan

    I mean lesser in what became Xbone, than what we all know it should have been. Were it not for MS being blinded by Kinect, when most gamers felt otherwise, as the next coming and just made a solid on par with PS4 console, things might be better for them.

    However, Xbone being what it is now is key. MS must learn from their mistakes like all after that E3 that many won't forget easily. I hope Xbone can stand the distance long tail, but failing that, there's always PC gaming.

    One improvement Sony should seriously look at is PSN policy, which lacks behind Live. Now, currently, my Live Gold has lapsed its 12 months to Silver. While I haven't renewed it yet, I still can play all of the games in my collection offline. Not so on PS3 which is crap frankly. Sony need to remember PS3/4 are games consoles, not a cable tv sub.

    PS3/4 does need to get better at these kinds of updates, so kudos to MS. Wasn't it also PSN that went down again recently, showing that MS's Live is still much more robust and secure an online system.

    Gamers can have long and sometimes selective memories. Many easily forget that Xbox 360 was also the lesser console last gen, but still beat PS3 in the games and options department. Now, while PS4 is running ahead in sales and a develop lead next to PC, that's all fine, but MS are clever people. Xbone options will only get better as time passes.

    By 2015 things will bend in MS favor a bit.

    Backgrounds are cool, but I've always been of the mind that they can never create the backgrounds I want. That's where the simplicity of Jpegs and USB come in. Even back on 360, I just use wallpaper from my own PC collection, job done.

    Backgrounds are one thing, but what I think many would really like is a customizable GUI. If we could drop all the tile metro chuff, and use the old simple 360 Dash on Xbone, that would really be something.

    How about that MS? I miss the blades GUI of old, and what's old can be new again.

  • Inside Star Citizen's grey market

    This has the potential to top what even Notch managed with Minecraft, and that's something to celebrate from a small dev, exciting stuff. If they plan to launch in 2016, I'd expect something playable in 2015. However, there's much to be said for holding your cards, in a competitive industry.

    Good luck to Roberts and Star Citizen. Kickstarter has helped delivered some cracking games many didn't believe in so bring it on. Plenty of other games to play til 2016 comes around.

    @joeymoto108

    Yeah, I could be but I'd say its not hype I'm caught in, just love of something different that will highly likely deliver. I haven't pre-ordered anything for Star Citizen, like many did for Destiny.
    Pre-orders are a con anyway in a digital age of plenty.

    Ouya was interesting in what it was trying to do for games. Its was always going to be struggle against the big boys for them, they knew that and still pushed it to market. Even in failure, there is much to learn from Ouya. Despite its shortcomings a lot of small devs found their feet on Ouya, which in turn had Sony, MS adjust their policies to small devs, as they didn't want to lose out. Overall, some good has come of Ouya. Next stop Ouya in tvs.

    Is that all a negative. Not at all. Pioneers rarely strike gold first, friend. Ask MS and they'll tell you all about that with the original Xbox. They lost millions from it, but also learned much from it, which in turn made 360 a better system, on their second try. Only problem was that with 360 success, came more untrained chefs, and someone caught the hybris hat at MS, that much got sacrificed blindly to make Xbone. That's why Xbone is served a little uncooked (next to PS4) with a side order of Kinect (now withdrawn from menu.

    Making a console is a rare thing, and we'll not likely see anything like Ouya until perhaps Steambox (if it happens at all. Making a game however is something that's possible, to a grand scale. Again, because of gate keeper suits, bad math and red tape, there's no market for a game like Star Citizen. Well, 56m proves them suits wrong, so kudos to crowd funding and Roberts getting this game made, no matter how long it takes him. I have faith that he's not going to rush it out of the door, half baked in falsehoods like Destiny was by Activision (not Bungie) because of greed and nothing more.

    Smart shoppers, fools and money go hand in hand. We can't all win, or can we? Seems stuff like Star Citizen on PC seeks to change that. Be a buyer or a seller if you like, as well as a player. For a game that's something to encourage, building on the awesome of games like EVE Online.

    That was a really cool piece, EG/Wes. Thank you.

    Star Citizen IMO, is going to be a game changing kind of game. Its certainly testament to the power of an idea from one man, working on it hard to bring it to fruition. Games are expensive to make while easier to conceive and only large publishers would have the sheer financial clout try attempt something like this game. Good to see those funds being used wisely for an indie dev effort, following his dream, unchained by red tape.

    No matter how awesome and ambitious, I think when it delivers the goods, it will blow minds like EVE Online, but on another level entirely. 2016 isn't that far off now. I just hope that my PC will run it by then.

    I do love the idea of having ships built that might be unique to you, even crewed by you and other players. So you can possibly be master and commander one minute on your bridge, and jumping into a star fighter to defend from raider attacks etc the next. Its like all my B5 dreams rolled into a game, plus trading and stuff. Awesome.

    I fear this game will crash Steam on release day. Looking forward to it.

    And for those who fear Roberts will disappear with that 56m, I have one reply for you.

    Destiny. Fools gold bought by many from a huge publisher. Enough said.

    Frankly, I'd rather back the small guy with the big idea.

  • Capcom: no new Darkstalkers any time soon

  • SpaceMonkey77 09/10/2014

    I think Dark Stalkers is a game of it 90's time, taking influences from horrors and myths for characters isn't a bad thing, but it could be improved upon. With the progresses in tech it could be special again. I guess it always was a bit spoofy, though.

    Japanese devs sometimes make the mistake of treasuring their babies a bit too much, that criticism isn't digested well that can in turn improve their games. Square also trip over this problem.

    But hey, if they don't want our money for that, I'd welcome more Dragons Dogma instead.

  • SpaceMonkey77 09/10/2014

    I think Capcom have said this before via Ono, but frankly I think its very very short sighted of Capcom, to base such a decision on an old 90's 2D games sales on modern consoles. I love your stuff Capcom, but I think you are asking the moon and the stars in your expectations, especially when you consider all the other gaming options gamers have. Low sales? Its a 17 and 20 year old game pack, Capcom. Get real.

    Like recent Killer Instinct on Xbone, what Dark Stalkers badly needs is a 21st century 3D SFIV style reboot from bottom to the top. Its the only way to make this series fresh again, create new characters and introduce new players to it, while taking advantage of Capcom's new engines. And once a new 3D Dark Stalkers is made, all they need to do is get in on the tournament circuit and in our consoles/PC and the money will be rolling in. Its not damn rocket science, as SFIV shows.

    The trouble is that the purse string suits at Capcom are now caught on the DLC craze, where devs can do less by selling extras and updates. Its not fun to have to buy SFIV, once, twice, three times a Poison, which has drummed me out of playing SF a bit. I'm yet to update to Ultra, because they'll then announce Ultra Omega Double XX version. Not a good idea to over-saturate your goods. (Its possible Capcom might think so after MvsC3, perhaps, whatever)

    Anyway, a new 3D Dark Stalkers IV would be cool, but you need to dig deep and listen to your fans, Capcom. How about asking all those tournament players you back, if they'd like to see a new 3D Dark Stalkers IV?

    Really wanted to get this game, but I'm afraid after BF3, as fun as it is, EA's DLC policy is up there with Activision's and I dislike what they do with it in a puke bucket.

    A BF4 GotY edition is what this is, to plug BF for this year. This game is less about fun and more about money raking.

    I'll continue playing BFBC2, when it was great and EA kept their fingers out of it. BF4 and BF3 are fine examplse of the 'too many cooks' theory in action.

    I used to visit the Edge website, but after a while, I got the impression that the site was a substitute to pushing you to buy the print magazine, and thus hasn't thrived as much as it should. I do hope this changes or Edge Online will get lost in the net noise.

    Yes, I know how you feel. A good magazine is a thing to treasure and its likely we'll never see its like again. While the decline of magazines and print media in general is a good thing for trees perhaps, its true we are losing something special. I'd love to know someone who owns every issue of Super Play. I hope someone is also curating this stuff too.

    @Doogle
    Chatting about magazines like this has been cool. Perhaps EG would like to a piece on the decline of print games magazines as well as places where they still reign like Japan (Famitsu etc) What would also be interesting is how different games magazines were from country to country, in terms of editorial, features etc. I know that my brief experiences with japanese import games magazines were always an exciting sensory assault, because you had to mentally decipher what was what, via screenshots etc, while your jaws hit the floor at what games we were missing out on.

    Take heart in the slow demise of print magazines and media. That's just the way much print is going now that next to everyone have a tablet or smart phone. We also have a lot more choice of places to go for gaming coverage, which is good for all after that Destiny business.

    Some of us were lucky enough to see the golden years of print games mags, so cherish those memories and move on.

    My last print mag hold out was Edge magazine, for its great variety of articles and features. Over the years and through different hands at Future, some of its best features have been dropped unfortunately ( I used to love the Game Art Gallery section. Its still like no other games magazine, mainly because of its games industry recruitment section (I'm sure many found work through it), which no other games magazine had (to my knowledge) and many still haven't emulated (guess there's less need with the net around, but still.

    I stopped buying Edge because I think the monthly magazine format doesn't suit the fast moving world of games as much anymore, in a 24/7 internet space age. I still miss it though and will browse a copy if I see it in the wild.

    A sign of the times. Surprised it had such a long run though, being a Nintendo rag. The dedicated format magazine is a dying breed.

    I still remember back when in launched in 92. I got the first few issues but stopped buying it, after realizing Super Play was a far better informative and entertaining games magazine.

    Thing also started to go down hill with these magazines when the N64 came out in 96. You could see that N64 lacked games so badly that dedicated Nintendo magazines struggled for stuff to right about them. As a result screen pics became bigger and writing less to fill pages. I kinda blame the N64 for hurting the awesome that was Super Play, as it transitioned from a plentiful SNES era to a bleak N64 one.

    Anyway, I digress. Goodbye Nintendo Mag Rag. I won't miss you much. Saying that mind, a more online controlled Nintendo information portal doesn't lift me with confidence either.

  • Kingdom Hearts 3 switches to Unreal Engine 4

  • SpaceMonkey77 07/10/2014

    I think some at Square are still suffering from that Spirits Within syndrome, where they are still in awe of graphics. No granted, They have graphics looked down like a lot of good devs, but I think their hybris on the back of FFVII etc grew too much. Doing their own engine, especially if they aren't going to outsource to offset its costs, it was always a bad idea.

    For them to switch to Unreal 4 says that Luminous is still having issues, of the type that can hamper their actually creating games. Unreal will do well for them, once they attach their cool art direction to it.

    Leave the spiky hair alone though, Square. It looks silly.

    Gordon Freeman, like Zelda are silent characters from a time with limitations in games. There intention was also for you, the player to be the characters shoes. FPS games back then were less about talking, and more about doing.

    And yes, that was spot on that Cortana has the most personality in game despite her not being human. When she has more than Master Chief, that's a problem IMO.

    Frankly the Master Chief might as well be a plank. In his very design, the lack of seeing his eyes and face makes him feel cold. IMO this is a mistake in Halo series.

    Ask yourself, why is Peter Weller's Robocop so iconic still? Its partly because despite him being a corporate owned cyborg cop, he still has some husk of humanity underneath all that metal and lab conditioning. Later on Robocop removes his mask and through his face alone, we experience his wise cracks to his painful ones and zeroes of directives.

    I wish the Master Chief could be the same, but his lack of humanity is too much a perfect Rambo and little else, Certainly a missed opportunity. Despite this, I'd welcome a new character for Guardians and shake things up a bit.

  • SpaceMonkey77 06/10/2014

    Part of me feels sorry for Bungie. They are gonna be chained to Destiny like they were Halo, especially since Destiny's issues. I hope that they can turn it around in time, so gamers return to it. In time it might become just as creatively draining for them, for while Activision have made their money with this travesty (I can see them diving into their money bin like Mc'Duck), its Bungie who ultimately have to live with, fix Destiny up and hopefully salvage it.

    Storytelling in Halo was much better, despite it being kind of cliched sci-fi stuff, and pushing that Destiny stuff to mobiles just breaks it. The whole game seems like stuffs missing which Bungie usually address. One day, we'll learn what really happened behind the scenes of Destiny.

    Good luck, anyway.

    Indeed and all the more why decent reviews of games matter, to help us decide. Remove them from the equation and games become a darker place.

    I can also agree that overall these charts are kinda flawed if they don't include online purchases, which is where much sales are going (especially via Steam etc. Get with the times, Chart Track.
