  • Hitman GO sneaks on Windows 8, Windows Phone

  • Spuzzell 28/04/2015

    Windows 10 cross-compatibility will mean a LOT of games for WP10.

    But I don't play games on my phone (Lumia 1520) so meh. I have GTA San Andreas and Halo Spartan Assault and I've hardly ever even touched those.

    I'd play a Football Manager though, if you're out there Sega.

  • Steam Workshop now allows modders to sell their work

  • Spuzzell 24/04/2015

    I just got banned from Steam for a week for "trolling" for protesting about this.

    It does not feel good in there at the moment.

    @SpaceMonkey77

    There's no altruism here! If Steam wanted to encourage modders financially then they would merely have extended the Steam wallet system to modders to use officially.

    This is a cash grab on behalf of Valve, which they've extended to publishers because they had to. That's it.

    Just saw this posted on a PC Gamer thread:



    "Hey *munchmunch munch* guys."

    "Hey Gabe. Here's the 36 doughnuts you asked for."

    "Great *munchmunchmunch munch* just *munch* put them in my trough."

    "Right. So, what's the new idea you had, O corpulent one?"

    " *munchmunchmunch* "

    "... sir? We can't hear you over the sounds of your chins wobbling,"

    " Hang on. *munch munchmunchmunch... munch*.. right. So, I've worked out why PC gaming is great. It's the community aspects of the scene, where people are happy to put in hundreds of hours of their own time to provide new content for games they love with no expectation of monetary recompense."

    "Ha ha ha yeah that's the bes"

    "NO, FOOLS. IT MUST END. WOE TO THOSE WHO WOULD IMPROVE THINGS MERELY FOR THE LOVE OF A TITLE AND THE GRATITUDE OF THEIR PEERS. I CANNOT EXTRACT A PERCENTAGE OF LOVE. WHERE IS MY CUT OF THE GRATITUDE? I MUST PAY FOR MY TRUCKLOADS OF DORITOS AND LARD. *munch* "

    "But surely this will lead to the end of what makes PC gaming so special? Surely this will inevitably turn modding into just more paid DLC? Won't abusing our dominant market share to monetise modding just stifle creativity, leading to takedowns and infighting, removing the whole reason modders mod and mean the scene dies?"

    " *munchmunch munch*

    " Sir? "

    " *munchmunchmunch* "

    " *munch* "

    @LordDemigod

    OK, but what happens now to the guy who decided to mod Thomas the Tank engine characters into Skyrim as dragons? That work now has potential monetary value to Bethesda, to Valve and to whoever owns Thomas the Tank Engines copyright.

    So instead of being a fun little free thing its now a cesspit of potential lawsuits and aggravation. So why would he bother?

    I wouldn't.

    @erikbc.b

    Monetizing the mod scene is a terrible idea. It changes the whole character of it.

    I have no problem donating to mods I've enjoyed. I donated 20 to Childs Play as thanks for Black Mesa for example.

    But Steam are looking to change the whole character of the hobbyist modding scene, simply so they can take a cut of the sales. They're turning modding into more paid DLC, because then they get a percentage.

    Steam's dominant market share means they can do this. But they shouldn't.

  • The Evil Within: The Assignment and The Consequence review

  • Spuzzell 24/04/2015

    If last year's The Evil Within saw Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami reclaiming the survival horror gameplay he popularised
    Er. Swap "reclaiming" for "generically retreading".

    I never even considered buying the last one. They're just boring now.

    If you want a watch that can also give you notifications, then get a watch that can also give you notifications.

    Strapping a clumsy, ugly, tiny screened dumb terminal to your wrist is.. well, to me it's very stupid.

    I'm not sure I'd feel confident in claiming to know what every single person in this thread thinks :-)

    Certainly I'm on record repeatedly calling the whole smartwatch concept out as illogical and pointless.

    Apples version is no more useful than anyone else's.. I'm sure a lot of iZombies will buy the watch as they have been told to, but I doubt even they will come back for seconds in a years time.

    Are wiimotes with motion plus accurate enough to be used as an accelerator pedal?

    A wiimote in a cheap plastic holder with a spring on the floor controlled by the foot... I could really see that being useful.

    This is the first game for years where I've actually been shocked at the quality of the graphics.

    Even on the PS4 version (I'm a PC elitist) Schmove linked to on Youtube, I actually said "holy SHIT." when the camera panned over the roof of a GT3.

    It looks ASTONISHING.

    I've had to go cold turkey on Football Manager as it's just too addictive to me, otherwise I would be all over this. I cannot think of a better way to fill journey times.

    And now I'm craving again. Man.

    For the love of GOD. Again with the Wii U failure rubbish?

    I don't understand what it is about the fact that Nintendo make buckets of money from small console bases that so many armchair experts seem to have problems with.

    I'm not even going to bother doing this whole thing again.

    It's a "failure" that's earning them hundreds of millions. I'm sure they are crying over you telling the world they've "failed hard". Probably blowing their noses on billion yen notes in shame.

    Don't pontificate and lecture if you don't know what you're talking about.

    (I'm a PC only gamer, FYI. Though I do have a Wii somewhere, and I will eventually buy a Wii U, so like every single other Wii-U owner I can spend hundreds of pounds on Nintendo games.)

  • Nintendo might be making the most exciting online shooter in years

  • Spuzzell 24/03/2015

    @IronSoldier

    You're just wasting your own time making this rubbish up. All it does it make you sound more and more ridiculous.

    It's fine if you feel like you cant play Nintendo games because the big kids will bully you.

    It's not why they bully you, but fine.

    But Nintendos share price is LITERALLY a seconds Googling away.

    Their financial figures are freely available.

    They are all, every single one of these facts, telling you you're an idiot.

    And yet you keep going, pushing some warped agenda that I don't even understand.

    You're just... stupid.

    I think I understand now.

    You're an idiot, there really is no point in trying to explain complicated things like "facts" to you as you just refuse to see.

    Nintendo are wildly successful with their business model.

    They will continue to be wildly successful with it as long as they keep making games that people want to play.

    Once they have an install base of around ten million, every first party game they make for their own consoles earns them at least 20,000,000 in profit. Do that four or five times a year and you'll keep filling up the bank accounts.

    No idea why that offends you. But it's just how it is, so you really should stop making yourself look stupid by claiming otherwise.

    You think you have to have guns and boobies and big boy swears in a game or people will laugh at you. You think you have to have the best selling console or you aren't part of the popular crowd, as if either of those things matter, or are even true.

    But everyone who ISN'T cripplingly insecure in themselves will buy Nintendo games, now and probably forever more, simply because they're great.

    Saying the Wii-U is a commercial failure is just plain wrong.

    Why people insist on spouting the insane rubbish about the Wii U being a commercial failure is beyond me.

    It'll have sold around 10,000,000 units by now. (9.2 million sold by December 31)

    Nintendo are now guaranteed to sell a minimum of a million copies of any first party game they release, for a profit of a minimum of 20,000,000 a time.

    It's a money printing press, and you're simply just an idiot for not seeing it.

    No-one can possibly know though, and yet there's comment after comment saying it should be on a list of the best games if it had only waited a week.

    This gen of consoles is extremely underwhelming so far if a game that no-one has played is being held up already as one of the main reasons to buy a console.

    @SabreWlf

    You don't HAVE to install a Steam game when you buy it, but it does try to do that automatically.

    EAs policy seems sensible to me, 24 hours is enough time to see if you can't run a game or hate it.

    Of course GOG is best, but then they usually are :-)
