  • Paradox picks up Battletech

  • SpaceMonkey77 12/05/2017

    Never was a Battletech fan as much, due to its building on japanese mechs, but its good to see that it still has fans. They will buy and enjoy this and that's good for variety. Good luck with that. Reply 0

    Its been many years since HL2 came out so anything that keeps that game's flame burning is a good thing. Modders, some of them will be tomorrow's game devs, can use the positive experience with HL2, and Valve are cool to let them do so. Hope it works out. Reply +1
  • Payday 2 evolves into "final form" with upcoming Ultimate Edition

  • SpaceMonkey77 12/05/2017

    @Blastiel

    Q4 Switch release, fella. I reckon it might be August 13th (or Sept) time, as that will be four years since PD2's original release date.

    The VR extra and Ultimate Edition are overall good, but I know they've handled their dlc weirdly, but the console version will get up to date at last. Its still a blast to play.

  • If you're after a fighting game for your Switch this month, there's one obvious answer

  • SpaceMonkey77 12/05/2017

    Garou is cool and its good to see SNK tapping their old arcade greats on Switch. I wish that Capcom would do more of the same, as SFIII & XMen:CotA and many other arcade classics long forgotten, would want me to buy a Switch much more. Reply +2
  • Russian YouTuber slapped with three-and-a-half year suspended sentence for playing Pokémon Go in a church

  • SpaceMonkey77 11/05/2017

    Poor fella & poor response to him. Its stuff like this that stops me from ever going back to a church, choosing atheism instead, no offense intended, outside of christenings, marriages & my eventual natural demise. Each to their own, but I disagree with this harshness, but its their country so they can do as they will.

    I wonder if he'll stop be going back to that church when he is set free? Good luck, Poke-gamer.

  • Square Enix trying to find a buyer for IO, future of Hitman in doubt

  • SpaceMonkey77 11/05/2017

    I think its s pity we never got a Kane & Lynch 3, because those characters are great and much has changed in the TPS genre since K&L2. It could be done much better now.

    As well as that, I really hope for a they create something new & fun though. Good luck as it think they can be more awesome & creative, while Square are cool in their own right.

    This is a surprise but could be great for Io, overall. They may need a creative break from Hitman to try something else new. I think they really need that break, so I'll look forward to what they can do. They are talented enough to bring something fresh and new. Good luck, Io. Reply 0

  • SpaceMonkey77 10/05/2017

    I still love Ubisoft games anyway, and Ghost Recon, Call of Juarez, Splinter Cell, Anno, PoP series is more for me, from their stable of games, than perhaps AC. Was still happy that AC got a film done & those GRAW short films, and that they have more plans there too, where many devs don't think about expanding their games that way via film.

    I'm sure if any gamers have queries about the AC games, you can ask them yourselves, but let's try not to drink the gripe water too much, gamers. E3 will reveal more soon, so rest easy. Forgive me if my comments touch things I might know less of, and such on this topic wasn't meant to upset or offend others. Its okay to have love for more nations and people on earth, than less, as well as your own. I love french food, cool people, games, art & comics, food, football, film, food and more food. Oh, did I say food? Yum!

    @EverilCorwell

    As I said, some creative choices will be adjusted to sell more & not upset, at the cost of some historical accuracy. It is french coin that creates games, so think about that for a second, and just why Ubisoft want their freedom & creative control to make their games, as they can get, to the point of encouraging games to buy their stocks and keep them free in that french spirit of such. Other mediums like shows, books, plays & such can do more accuracy than Ubisoft might not be able to do in a game, with more focus on accuracy. Take a look at shows like Turn, Versailles, Frontier(Netflix) for better accuracy through dramatis of such periods in history. We are lucky to have AC at all. If AC was made by those with less coin, would it be as successful? Question of the ages, but the fact is big money is needed to make games or any modern media of high quality, so make of that what you will.

    We love to divide into camps & tribes. Some like to tickle a socialist stance, but not I, for we, as modern 21st century nations, do not see or harshly experience when such goes horribly wrong, as other nations do. Sure, I'm for democracy. Neither is royalist, as you say, way an absolute either, for there is no real perfect way of doing anything on earth. I think everyone, everywhere, tries to find a happy medium of it all, a tightrope to walk well. Think of it this way. Go into the french street and say 'I'm going to make a this AC game, for the people'. Unless a gamer, many wouldn't care to know or seek to invest in it. (I hope I got that part right) Do the same for some with coin, and the potential will be seen and to date AC & Ubi have done their best to tread this line. If AC were totally accurate, it might upset some who invested in it, possibly, I can't know what they do. ACIII, had to sell well in the U.S which is a huge market for them. AC is still a game & Ubisoft, a business. If they do well from it, that's good for them, no matter their station and that's as it should be. Others are welcome to make their own game covering history more accurately, if they wish to do so. Sorry, if I digressed a bit there, as I dislike getting too political, for such can raise ire & vex, unintended & descend into argues and such. Perhaps my mind tries to see things from more points of view, than most, peacefully imperfectly (or lest such be used against me negatively). I hope you understand me better and I still look forward to Ubi's games. And indeed, this is my view and I do not know everything about the game, history, nor wish to.

    Lastly, the U.K has a great and rich history too, but how many games do you see based upon it, like AC? Very few to none and not to the level of AC. Why is that? Why is GTA's americana, more of a draw for gamers and still one of GB's biggest selling games series to date? There are likely reasons why. U.K games sometimes can't do better, as GTA has done, because conditions are asked of devs to be more U.K this or that, in order to receive perks. Many U.K devs don't want to sell out their creative visions of their games, too heavily via establishment means, possibly in order to get such breaks, so coin might be sought elsewhere. Creative freedom as much as possible, and that's a good thing, even Ubisoft strive for that, even as they currently fight a takeover on the horizon, that could hurt their games, that we love to play. I hope things work out for Ubisoft, anyway. If I am wrong, anywhere, please feel free to correct me.

    @EverilCorwell

    I hear you, but perhaps they were scared of upsetting their own french gamers & citizens with their game. We know more of history, that we didn't know back then. AC is still a game and needs to sell, still one of Ubi's biggest, that's why sometimes reality can be adjusted through a safer alternative history lens, like EA/DICE's BF1 or ACIII's King Washington dlc. Not as accurate but a creative trade off of sorts, not to upset some, by telling what really went down, as best as we know it. Here we go with luxury of hindsight, though. Perhaps Ubisoft should add disclaimer that all in each game is not historically accurate and some adjust for creative differences.

    Overall, I think games are richer for the AC series. Before, anything history wise was of little consequence or note in most games outside of the RTS/Civ building genre. I can appreciate AC, just as I can the GTA series, even if all of it isn't for me. I'm most glad to see different gender characters again, which GTA is yet to do (hint, hint, Rockstar). I'd also love to see AC get more creative with its assassin part than just fights & stabbing fools, as that may be why some may get bored of it. Play Kagero's Deception or watch some films, guys. Room for improvement that we might yet see, so I'll give them a chance.

    Despite the mists of history, I also still love our french cousins, across the water and have no ill will towards them, so be cool on that front.

    @EverilCorwell

    I understand you, but for the real story the French Revolution, it was a disastrous perfect storm of a handful of butterflies all mixing at the same time. There is no one reason why it happened. The Royalist side, ideally mostly neglected the poor folk (some not all), but there were those who did attempt to improve things, but the other worse factors outpaced their good efforts. From the poor folk side, they needed food via bread, but the truth we know now, is that France didn't have enough grain to feed & cover its exploding populous, so something would have gone bad at some point. Add Napoleon and conflict into that mix and poor hungry folk not told the truth and manipulated by politics & others, and it went crazy perfect storm, sadly. Had some just told everyone we don't have enough grain to feed the populous, much disaster of the guillotine could have been avoided, but that's my view, I'm not a historian & I wasn't there.

    Others might say different. Just like the fall of Rome, or the Russian revolution (or any other) there were more than just one factor mixed in it. The royalist view would be more well known because more of them were educated, and some escaped France to bring record of the event, and more of them were pointless blamed and killed when they had nothing to do with lack of grain in french fields & warehouses, plus war & poor choices made. Nothing is ever as simple as blame the rich dude, over there, for only few had power sway in France at that time, not many, as poorer folk assumed. Indeed, some of them were corrupticus & dumb, but not all. Many had the misfortune of having done well in life and were thrown into the awful mix. But of course all in France suffered regardless of station, with little food, but go and look up the rest.

    If a mass shortage of food happened today, we'd have the choice of importing food aid or boring money from another country, to get back on track, as might be done in the E.U today, but back then it was mostly every nation for themselves and Napoleon wasn't making that any easier, by trying to empire everywhere. Like Rome, in building empire too fast perhaps too far, France sadly suffered as Rome one did, for these things always exhaust man power, money, weapons for defense and most vitally food supplies. By contrast, if you look at the British empire (when that was a thing), they did better in such efforts because of better links, planning & money management, navy & logistics TO NOT RUN OUT OF MONEY, FOOD & SUPPLIES IN THE U.K/home. When this lacking outcome happens, its a lit fuse recipe for disaster, as you can see in some nations still today, sadly. All nations today, should do their best to avoid such as best they can. Some might say its a balancing act, but with the right people & time it can work out for the better.

    If I have any of this wrong, feel free to correct me, some history books might do better than me. I pick not sides in such a view either, just saying what I know. Thanks. Will look forward to Ubisoft's new AC game still, because I love history stuff and their games rock. Best of luck.

    I think Ubisoft might have taken some creative differences for good reason. Consider the global climate we live in. Ubi as a french company, might not have wanted to be too overly jingoistic considering AC Unity sells globally & because EU reasons. I hope Actibizz don't fall into this issue with upcoming CoD WW2.

    Good luck with your new AC game, Ubi & as always will look forward to your E3 presentation.

    That's what I'm expecting. EG people, it makes me a little sad to see some bagging on AC, when many other games get their sequels. Ubisoft were smart to give AC a break and let some other games shine instead. In that time we got Steep, GR Wild Lands, The Division, For Honor & Watch Dogs 2, but to name a few and that's been better for them & us.

    AC is still of import to Ubi & it was a brave more to give it more time in the dev cycle, as it was becoming too familiar (you know, like CoD). History is a thing it does well so we'll see how it does soon. Give them a break, as its always a joy to see AC's worlds in ones & zeros, that we might probably never see.

  • EA reckons 40% of console game sales will be downloads by the end of 2017

  • SpaceMonkey77 10/05/2017

    Having a game collection offline is a worthy thing, but space is limited for all gamers. The future's that digital way, though. Reply +1
  • SpaceMonkey77 10/05/2017

    PC games I think will need physical. Because of the nature of computers to be online or offline, a dvd/BD is vital as a back up. There's also many fun games on PC going back 30+ years, that can still be played and enjoyed, long after support has be abandoned or devs closed up shop.

    Game fans love for a game series can still burn for a long time. I was just watching a video about The Rise and Fall of Command & Conquer series (go and watch the video on the Youtubes). I've been playing that since the 90's and its interesting to note, how C&C lost its way from what its greatness was. Despite its fall from grace, fans can still back track and enjoy all old discs preserving those games, that were more offline but can still offer countless hours of fun. I still think C&C has great potential but its up to EA, if it returned to its strength, while learning design traits from DoTA, Starcraft, WH40K & League of Legends, it could be awesome. I admit I miss C&C and its b-movie FMV stylings, which gave a lot of actors a break in games. I would love if a C&C reboot went via Kickstarter, but its not my call to make.

    Were physical to go from PC, I think it would hurt it more, than not. We have to aim to preserve games, as we do film, books and more, lest they be lost to time. Digital is a good back up, but physical must co-exist.
    Reply 0
  • SpaceMonkey77 10/05/2017

    This is not at all surprising. I expect in the future that physical games might be via a print to order system, perhaps where retailers & warehouses can print them on demand, once the game code is sent through to them to print. This may vastly allow them to be made for who want a physical copy while cutting down on overstocks.

    Digital games were always going to rise because of convenience of purchase & play, which will only get easy in the coming years. Steam and co aren't going anywhere and are constant. PSN and Live can only improve with time up to Steam's high bar set, especially with regards to sales management (can someone teach PSN/Sony how to do sales and pricing well, please?). Overall its a good thing, unless we raise the preservation point. Consoles will have physical for a long while yet, to prop up retail with their cut, even while big game retail is going south, somewhat outside of Amazon.

    Its a problem to go too deep into digital without physical back ups, and after that surprise of a gamer discovering an old Starcraft gold disc and returning it to Blizzard, much to their delight (high five!), it shows and highlights again just how important physical games preservation is for games, to enjoy, archive and learn from for future game devs and fans.

    Okay, point taken. With BotW, while I've not played it that's creating a USP for one over the other. I guess they didn't want the Wii U version to be better, because they were banking on Switch so much. I agree not a great move but perhaps its desperate times for them.

    There's no stuffing of owners. All Nintendo systems get their time and when that time is up, gamers can choose to stick or twist. The hurt some feel I can understand to a degree. I've been there with GC, and I chose not to go through that pain again. Its up to Nintendo to address any issues within their huge company. I can make suggestions all day, that would improve their fortunes, but I'm not in their employ, just a game fan. I am happy that Switch is doing well still, but only changes post Wii U can bring them better fortunes. Some change will be slow because they largely have to go by japan, where online play is not as prevalent.

  • Dead Island 2 is still alive, Deep Silver insists

  • SpaceMonkey77 08/05/2017

    @Mar27w

    Yeah I agree that Days Gone may be a big mover for Sony. H1Z1 is fine but that more of a sandbox battler with no real story or characters, as far as I know. Correct if wrong.

    State of Decay 2 has potential. Really enjoyed the previous game, but I hope this time they add aircraft use. Halo use would make playing the game a little easier so boost vehicle variety. Being able to craft armor onto vehicles might make a lot of difference too. Wishes & horses. I expect SoD2 will go more open world too.

    E3 will be cool. Woot! I think its time to start building the E3 hype train.

    TWD is still hugely popular. Zombies don't die, dude. I think that with seventh season out and eighth on the way, its only going to get batter. I get that the game is late but I'm still looking forward to it. Something else than State of Decay.

    I just hope that their new engine (whatever it is) is up to scratch by the time it comes out. PD3 will probably have to engine upgrade too. I'd be very surprised if this TWD game didn't sell like cold zombie flesh and after the average last game, it needs a worthy fps to do it justice.

  • For Activision, WW2 ends Call of Duty's YouTube dislikes nightmare

  • SpaceMonkey77 08/05/2017

    Infinite I haven't played. I think that the annual CoD for so many years had burnt the fatigues out. Like Assassin's Creed, CoD too needs a break, but the trouble is that the series is so vital to Actiblizz's financials, that they would find it hard to give a break.

    The return to WW2 is a back step, but I think that there's room for improvement in code & design, that we'll likely see by E3 or November. Whether other theaters of WW2 less spoken of are covered in this game even via DLC will be interesting to watch, but its up to Acti to have the vision for such representation. I expect it'll be popular on multiplayer. And yes, both sides campaign would make it something different as I think only in film and books have we seen both/differing side of this conflict, for as with all conflict, there were those who got caught on the wrong side, unable to escape the Nazi's mass reach.

  • The Occupation and the perils of politics in games

  • SpaceMonkey77 08/05/2017

    @Agamemnon

    Indeed, I think its really up to indie devs who have their own creativity to be that voice even if small or not if they wish. Spec Ops: The Line, may have been just another TP/FPS game, but it had an intelligent writing team behind it, giving it something else with meaning, ethos (ethics), pathos (emotion) and catharsis (redemption) and we need to see that, now and then, than just be total escapists from life in games, while there's place for that too.

    I like the look of Sexy Brutale, will check it out.

    Lastly, its okay to be concerned about the real world we live in, if you see things going down a lesser path. I do too, for its hard to switch off eyes & brain, but do well to filter or the tides might sweep you away too. All art is a great filter for which things can go through, if they can't be talked about without descending into argument & melee.

    I understand its easy to get lost. The other day I would have liked to had voted but I feel that the outcome will be more of the same. Not much changes and perhaps due to so many of an older generation running things, we can't progress as much as some other places can. But I don't want to get too deep on this, for what I say some will find a problem.

    I wish these chaps well with their game and hope we can see more expressive, conscious and thought provoking games from other devs too.

  • SpaceMonkey77 07/05/2017

    Well, all art & creative expression has always, in some way or another challenged the status quo, across the ages of history. Go to any museum and you'll see the signs of it, if you know where to look.

    Today, this is no different, be it in a simple article of view, a comic, tv show or yes, even a game. For many years, games avoid much by adjusted creative means but gradually, some are bold enough to make something different with adjustments made to not upset. So long as whatever is covered is approached with some degree of intelligence, respect, good story & characters & kid gloves, things may be okay. Politics is always a thorny black hole subject, reflections of real life hard to do well, though technically getting easier, but I hope the devs of this game & others similar do so. Books have long been better at doing this kind of thing.

    Overall, those of a sensitive, conservative nature need not play a game like this, through the magic of the self editing, avoid/off button, for in truth not all games are for everyone, and while we enjoy games or any other media, some parts will make a person feel positive & negative emotions, along a roller coaster ride. That's okay too but all who enter need not abandon all hope.

    Good luck, White Paper Games.

    I wish Sony would do another Jumping Flash 3 or 4, because that game hard the crazy japanese charm and could be done much better with today 3d tech & crazy draw distances.

    Yep, its the eternal media preservation problem that not enough studios are taking up, sadly. Its always sad to hear of some show, musical work, game or other that just gets lost to time or accidentally thrown away when tech upgrades come along. Would be nice if all studios dedicated a small portion of their proceeds to preserving a safe collection of what made them great. Must have been a lot of smiles on faces at Blizzard when that disc turned up.

  • Meet the man with 1200 Platinum trophies

    Fair play to the guy. I've been achievo hunting on since Xbox 360 & while some downplay such things I still think they are a great addition to modern gaming, which encourage us to play & challenge ourselves or others.

    I recall many Sony fanboys used to deride achievements as pointless until Sony emulated them with trophies. Despite that its great to see some Sony fans aren't like that & can see the benefits. I'm glad many others have accepted the concept too.

    My 360 score is nowhere near that, while different, but its nice to see this guy embracing this part of gaming.

    Think you are hoping too much for FF7 on Switch, friend. Sony will have capital in developing that one. If Sony did make a Vita 2, FF7 they'd want to push on it & PS4/5.
