    Perhaps I might write some notes on that ice climbing game, or feel free to run with it Nintendo, you do own it after all. Switch needs something different & unique too. Unity/Unreal engine can build it in 3D so go nuts & run with it, if you wish, Nintendo & co. I have other cool things I can create. Apologies (bows). Reply 0

    I'm so sorry. I'm not here to get on others case. Enjoy the show. I'll keep dreaming of that rebooted Ice Climbers game, rebooted Mach Rider & other things in vaults that gather dust. Think outside of the box. I still love Nintendo.X Reply 0

    Lol, no it won't. TrackMania has an editor friend. I know you are jesting me anyway, friend. DD isn't needed with clo. Hey, I don't expect everything Nintendo make to be for me. Online play has been done well since PSP, so it can be done. Motion controls, not really my thing. That ship has sailed, IMO, but I don't know all, respectfully. I'm all for whimsy & light games more friendly that's cool, just want something else for ages beyond. Last time we got that was 1080 Snowboarding.LoveX

    Ice Climbers is a rebooted climbing game, all about rock/ice climbing & survival, you vs the high altitude wilderness, lack of oxygen, rockfalls, wildlife & avalanches & mountains. What secrets will you find up there? Watch your step up there, as one false move & no one will be there to help you.

    One can dream, right. This is what I want from Nintendo, but will likely never see, but that's okay too.

  • Ubisoft storms E3 with a vital reminder that video games are human and fun

  • SpaceMonkey77 13/06/2017

    @spekkeh

    Indeed. Ubisoft have done well. All of their games were rock solid, while Just Dance isn't for me as much (I save that for clubs, personally & very much love dance as a cultural thing overall with music), it'll still please a lot of its fans. I liked Dance Central on Kinect, for it was one of its saving graces, but Just Dance arrived late & I had no Wii/Wii U. Ubisoft's stage vibe always makes me happy, I can't explain it. it always feels like chilling out with friends & that's a nice feeling.

    None of their games disappointed me & if they are having regular in house game jams, its clearly working for them, something more devs/pubs should try, IMO. Aisha's is missed but they still flew well without her. All good, so high five.

  • Sony's flat E3 conference shows signs of a mid-generation lull

  • SpaceMonkey77 13/06/2017

    I think with Sony in the lead they are sitting pretty. PS4 is passing the 60 million mark and they are leading, bravo. The games shown while coming in 2018, aren't that far away. Beware the crown of complacency, Sony. Nintendo still feel & suffer the hubris thorn of wearing the leader crown, respectfully.

    Sony's only weakness right now are a stronger service that doesn't crash or get cracked by internet fools, lack of decent backwards compatibility support, better PSN sales & the tombstone that is the Vita. I half expect that Sony will be working on some of these, as they should, the latter especially since the Switch is doing so well, must leave them scratching their heads a bit.

    Other than PS5 years ahead, Vita is the true weakness that Sony needs to address than avoid & I hope somewhere they do so. I saw an interesting article on Kotaku recently, on japanese gamers lining up outside of stores in Japan to buy a Switch, which are in high demand & short supply. That must worry some at Sony HQ, so perhaps they should look & Switch & think very carefully about how to fix/reboot/update Vita & raise their game to something gamers want & can also hold aloft as a worthy investment.

    Technically, I know that Vita possibly has the power & spec to emulate previous gens of Playstation, so there's room to build there for your BC, if not also on PS4. Looking at Nvidia or AMD for GPU chip backing might also help to reboot Vita, than using Power VR again (as that might hurt devs from doing more with it), & I wish Sony well with their efforts in days ahead & thank them still for their show & cool games.

    Thank you for the years of cool PS fun since PS1, Sony.

  • The big interview: Xbox boss Phil Spencer

  • SpaceMonkey77 13/06/2017

    Here's something else. XBX will need more games from MS. I hope they can move on this, because that's why gamers buy a console. MS have a huge library of games they can reboot for console, & and while I have some awesome ideas about some of them, I hope they can work it out. Reply +2
  • SpaceMonkey77 13/06/2017

    I think it'll be a hit still. Having both big consoles is a good way to go this gen, with exclusives and such. Even if you have a PC you'll get a lot, but still not everything. It'll take devs time to get used to XBX, but not that long.

    BC on OXB games is the biggest win from this, and knowing we can keep our games than trade & discard them each gen. I think if MS can encourage achievements via updates on classic OXB games, such would get gamers to check them out more & cherish them more too.

    How about 500-1000 achievement points for every OXB game played & completed? Interested.

  • Final Fantasy 15 for PSVR is now first-person fishing experience Monster of the Deep

  • SpaceMonkey77 13/06/2017

    With the success of FFXV, I thought this was weird at first, but perhaps they are building on a stronger part of that game, that gamers enjoyed and that's a good thing.

    Previous fishing games in LoZ, Seaman & Bass Fishing seems a thing. Extra extension to the FFXV game in VR, can't harm. Good luck with that, Square.

  • All of a sudden there are two big pirate games coming out in 2018

  • SpaceMonkey77 13/06/2017

    Overall I think its a good thing. Both will do a lot differently. Sea of Thieves is more about team based play & adventuring with a lighter vibe to it.

    By contrast Skull & Bones is while more from AC's stable, also a more hardcore take on high seas pirates of the past. if you want a more Master & Commander vibe, Skull & Bones will be the one to play.

    I think both games will do well anyway, for we thirst for something new. AC has done reflections of past eras very well. SoT while from a small studio, also seems to be channeling a Goonies adventure vibe, giving you things to do on land, which is cool to see.

    I'd sure be up for playing both games. How about you?

  • A new look at Quantic Dream's PS4 game Detroit

  • SpaceMonkey77 13/06/2017

    Now that we've seen more of the game play mechanics, Ithink this one is going to be a winner too. The rise of AI is coming with robots & android soon after, so its only a matter of time, til what this game future projects in its sci-fi vibe.

    Are they free beings or owned construct? Play the game to find out. Looks really groovy too.

  • Insomniac's Spider-Man debuts gameplay footage

  • SpaceMonkey77 13/06/2017

    This game is a very smart move too. Spidey is always a winner & here they've channeled the web-slinger so well, that even Marvel must be impressed. Combat channeling the Batman vibe but much more dynamic is cool, as is environmental use combined.

    Spider Sense, says this will be a big winner on PS4 too & is a nice step up from Infamous besides. Well done, Sony, now I want a PS4 too.

    Overall for a Sony conference, they've already pushed the PS4 Pro & PSVR, so them being more about the games was a smart move & too me they didn't disappoint there.

  • Sony's Norse God of War reboot a handsome brute in new footage

  • SpaceMonkey77 13/06/2017

    I love this bat crazy series. Going norse from having battled all in greek is a very interesting direction to go in. Already love it & I think it'll be fantastic. The new dynamic of his son & heir to look out for is most interesting, bringing that cool empathy balance to the series action. A bit like TWD game, there, but why not. I love being emotionally invest in game characters as I do movie, tv, play or book characters. Reply +1

  • Starlink: Battle for Atlas is a Ubisoft toys-to-life sci-fi game

  • SpaceMonkey77 12/06/2017

    This game looks cool, but perhaps the PC version will turn up later on. Yes, I'd love to play it as I'm a sucker for sci-fi too.

    The model/Amibo thing I'm not sure about, it may work once used to it, but yeah looks cool overall. High five! Have space suit, will travel.

  • Ubisoft reveals new pirate game Skull & Bones

  • SpaceMonkey77 12/06/2017

    A big highlight for Ubi. Nice spin off from AC, tapping that seafaring menace vein well. I think frankly that it'll sell out once its released. Love it & I'm a sucker for historia period game stuff. Reply 0
  • Surprise! Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is a thing

  • SpaceMonkey77 12/06/2017

    This game is encouraging. After LoZ BotW, it shows that Nintendo are learning from other new games. LoZ learned from The Witcher & co and Mario is learning something from X-Com, so that's good to know. Switch owners should enjoy it. Reply +2

  • WipEout series claims first ever UK chart top spot with Omega Collection

  • SpaceMonkey77 12/06/2017

    @Perjoss

    We'll see about that in the future. Last big F-Zero game was on GC, before Nintendo were online for gaming, so while they've said there's little to no interest in such a game, that needs to be looked at again in the light of online gaming, which if developed correctly could be big like Rocket League or Trackmania for them.

    The potential is there, but Nintendo have to make F-Zero with online play & hopefully a level editor to give it a great deal of extended play. And like Mario Kart 8, it'll do well because racing games are a lot of fun.

    Well, we all love games & I shall look forward to Sony's hand later. I'm looking forward to God of War's new path, where poor Kratos just can't get any peace. Uncharted is always a blast too. Days Gone is from the Syphon Filter team, so I already love that game, but would also secretly love another Syphon Filter.

    I think that PS4 owners might be in a dry spell & this game with its classical style offers countless hours of game play. Can't blame them really.

    We'll see how things pan out for it in the long term.

    @ricenpea

    F Zero is a fine game. Many like it because of its futuristic sci-fi racing league, weird tracks & many weird human & alien racers. Wipeout doesn't go this far with it more shallow future race take, while more could have been done there. Futurist stuff is popular in sci-fi & its cool to imagine.

  • Bethesda unveils Creation Club, a kind of paid-for mods initiative for Skyrim and Fallout 4

  • SpaceMonkey77 12/06/2017

    Some of you gamers are a bit of a joke, sorry. What is the one thing that keeps gamers playing a game? Enough content to suit.

    Take a game like Skyrim or Fallout & add mod levels to such & the games kind of take on immortal status, always being played by someone. So long as Bethesda have figured out had to divide up the spoils for a varying mod scale & sale, then I can't fault it. Well done, Bethesda (& Valve for bringing it up prior to some gamer chargrin).

    On PC, mods do better in large part because they are free. I agree but not all are free & that's actually okay too. IMO, we actually can get great games by cherishing free mods & paid mods too.

    As a result every now & then we get stuff like Minecraft, Day Z & Players Unknown Battlegrounds, which began as mods but are gaining great ground because of that PC nature. And if you like a certain mod dev/gamer, surely you'd want to support them making cool games more awesome, right? Such would be no different in other fields creative & its best to support what you love most.

    Remember to chill out your fears on ice, because it won't kill the mod scene. The mod scene will always exist so long as the PC exists in its open source nature & many cool games will always come from there. Like with game engines, because some of them are sold for money, it doesn't mean free game engines will go away either, so perspective people. Get some, today!

  • Skyrim on Switch will have Legend of Zelda items

  • SpaceMonkey77 12/06/2017

    If it helps gamers feel more at home in Skyrim's amazing world, then why not?
    I can see a lot of Skyrim play filling Switch owners time.


    Perhaps Beth might think about getting Fallout 3 & 4 onto Switch too. Would be ideal on Switch for those long trips away from home & tired commutes to work.

    I agree that Sony & Nintendo shouldn't force gamers to rebuy games they've purchased before & when that ends, we'll all be happier gamers. I love Sony too, but they've dropped the ball on BC for a long time, so both Sony, Nintendo have room to improve too.

    @williamarthurfenton

    Don't think you are being fair. Exclusives are fast becoming a thing of the past, but only on consoles do they cling to such for something different. All systems have their exclusives. Hell, the PC has many that will never grace a console, so gripe not people. Time to celebrate gaming & analyze more end of next week.
