  • Yogventures dev to "dissolve" following Yogscast-backed project failure

  • SuperSoupy 22/07/2014

    Seems like a mutual lack of professionalism between both yogscast and those who worked at the dev studio.

    Then again the backers should know what they're signing up to when they use kickstarter. It ain't all smiles and green logos (anyone remember when Spike Lee kickstarted a movie, then simply took the funds and did nothing?)

    If by chance there's a case here, then those affected should band together and launch their own Kickstarter, to raise money to sue Yogscast and anyone who ran off with their pledged funds, and get them shut down.

    ...I'd pledge.

  • Digital Foundry: Hands-on with Nvidia Shield Tablet

  • SuperSoupy 22/07/2014

    @Poncho_D I think that it's redundant in that it is oddly expensive, yet is in no way required to play android games and in the majority of cases won't even enhance the touchscreen experience since you have that on your phone or tablet anyways.

    It's certainly beneficial in a way, considering games that rely on virtual buttons. But then you have to wait for the developer to patch said games or apps to remove the on-screen clutter when you no longer need it. Or implement a shield controller design that benefits controller play, instead of just lifting the binary tap feel that you get from glass-based button pressing. That leans into the 2nd issue...

    At over 200 for what is essentially a controller, I can't see it taking off. And as such developers will be less inclined to spend their time and money on making their games compatible. If consumers are buying a Shield, they'd better hope all their other gaming friends are too otherwise official app support will be limited.

    Lastly, there's the streaming issue that, while all fine for the few, isn't yet good enough for the majority. And Nvidia are gonna need that majority if they want success from this thing. Like I said I really like the idea of it. But the fact that we're not all ready for it tech-wise, means the price is beyond justifiable.

    Being a tablet, I'm assuming this is Android?

    If so, then it's redundant as a serious games device. This is because 99% of Android games are catered to touch screens. And yet while you can stream your PC games library, internet speeds are unfortunately not quite there yet, in a wide enough market, to produce smooth stream/cloud-based gameplay. Heck, look at how Onlive has been doing lately.

    This looks cool. But personally I'd rather wait 2-3 years for the network and software requirements to match the machine's ambition.

  • Wii U system update lets you transfer data between consoles

  • SuperSoupy 22/07/2014

    Great. So when I gain the ability to see into the future and determine that my WiiU will die at an exact time, I can buy another one sooner, place it next to my old machine and do the transfer then?

    Nintendo. Just. Tie. Accounts. To. A. Cloud-based. Download. Service. Like. Everyone. Fucking. Else!

    I know you want to protect your games and keep them to the systems you want and such. But while you hog all the toys in the playpen like a greedy child, you inadvertently leave the rest of us account-holding kids with accounts that could become worthless at any time!

  • UK changing approach to illegal torrents

  • SuperSoupy 22/07/2014

    I'm sure this will work wonderfully. As it in won't work at all. I mean who's to say you even received the letter in the first place?
    I'm sure they'll keep a record of everyone they send a letter to, and also the amount of letters they've sent out to that person.

    If said person exceeds their yearly letter cap, then they'll probably bring the hammer down.

    You are right though, it won't stop piracy, but then again this isn't a move to do that. They know they can't stop piracy, so the alternative is to convince people otherwise. Which is good.

    The only thing I don't like is that the ISP's will probably use this as a distraction: championing it in front of the public while behind the scenes they will ban any website they see fit, without telling anyone.

    You don't see Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury flogging Sky Broadband on TV, spouting how they protect their users, but mentioning that they limit the amount of websites that you can use.

  • Assassin's Creed Memories card combat game announced for iOS

  • SuperSoupy 17/07/2014

    ...didn't even need to read the sub-heading to know that this was going to be free-to-play.

    The 20v20 model does sound intriguing, for sure. But if people want to spend loads on a dedicated card game, they're going for the likes of Hearthstone or Magic. Not this clear cash-in material.

  • Microsoft announces 18,000 jobs to be cut in the next year

  • Ubisoft now employs a chief parkour officer for Assassin's Creed

  • SuperSoupy 17/07/2014

    The other way to look at it is that the games have kept the same level of consistent high quality....except for AC3.....bad Ubi....bad...**taps ubisoft on the nose and sends them to their basket**
    True. I'd prefer the same old good crap, rather than the same old crap crap. For sure.

    But they really need to shake things up drastically with the series. Or not. It makes money so what do they care?

    But there's simply no reason for me to consider buying Unity because I know I've already experienced what it offers. Gameplay is the same in each game. The story is the same in each game. Design is the same in each game. Once I get over the new location, all I'm left with is the same.

  • SuperSoupy 16/07/2014

    I recently had someone make an audio claim against one of my youtube videos, because it used 50 seconds of a copyrighted music track. (It wasn't a gameplay vid).

    I find it crazy that one person can come under fire for using 50 seconds of copyrighted audio, but someone else is completely fine to record a whole studio's ENTIRE copyrighted game.

    So yeah, I may seem a tad bitter about the subject because I've felt it's sting. But if I'm being called 'wrong' for something so small, then the regular youtube let's players are definitely doing that same 'wrongness' times 1000.

  • Oculus VR clamps down on eBay Rift re-selling

  • SuperSoupy 15/07/2014

    "If you buy on eBay you are on your own."
    According to Oculus' site, they don't offer refunds once a purchase is final.

    They may offer replacement parts if your kit comes with a cracked lens or something, but even if they have to send you out replacement parts, you'll likely be stuck with the shipping tax bill.

    Financially, you're on your own regardless of where you buy from.

  • Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is the best Nintendo spin-off in years

  • SuperSoupy 14/07/2014

    From what I read when reviews of SM3DW were going around, the Captain Toad minigames were...meh. Certainly not spinoff material. Still this looks to be inventive, specifically from a level-design perspective.

    It also looks like it would be way more suited to the 3DS. You can see why they went WiiU though: the small levels mean they can really push it graphics-wise.

    ...I really don't know what to make of this. On one hand I'd rather play this as a demo of 3DS minigames. But if the game is properly fleshed out as a single player campaign, and lifted from its mediocre Mario 3D World status, it could be this generation's Pikmin on the home console front.

  • Civilization Revolution 2 review

  • SuperSoupy 11/07/2014

    I can't stand Civ Rev 1 on iOS. It's a hollow shell of what Civilization should be.

    Besides, mobile platforms are surprisingly powerful now (and the specs are only going to go up). With games like XCOM: Enemy Unknown now out on mobile, I'd rather they put time into porting Civ 5 instead of this 'meet-at-the-halfway-mark' business.

  • Sigourney Weaver and original Alien cast to star in Alien: Isolation

    Great-looking DLC = YAY!

    Only accessible through pre-ordering the game = :-(

    To be honest, I can't see them just taking away this dlc post-launch. DLC that people have been hard at work on, and paid the actors stupid amounts for their voice work. No way are they going to chuck that away after pre-orders have ended.

    My money's on them doing a 180 on themselves and releasing all the DLC 2 months after launch anyways.... just in time for xmas.

  • Kinect 2 for PC costs 159

  • SuperSoupy 07/07/2014

    Just goes to show how applicable Kinect is outside of the console world.

    The obvious downside is that it doesn't come with any particular software (or hardware) that makes it different from the console version you can get for 20.

    Plus, having this:

    It only works with applications developed for Kinect with Windows v2
    ...kind of defeats the point of it being so applicable if you severly limit its compatability like that.

    In short, great idea making a kinect solely for developers. But MS's marketing procedure may just be dumb enough to kill it dead unfortunately :-(.

  • Miyamoto: Nintendo "gradually changing the structure" of The Legend of Zelda

  • SuperSoupy 04/07/2014

    @scuffpuppies That it was. But from what I've heard the release of the n64 was put on hold until this game was ready to launch along with it. Waiting for Mario 64 meant waiting for the n64, and my god what a great console that was :) Reply +6
  • SuperSoupy 04/07/2014

    This is basically the top of my list of 2015, I'll enjoy other games but will always waiting patiently for Zelda to arrive.
    You'll be waiting patiently for a while. I reckon this won't be out till 2016 at least. Going on previous games, it's taken around 18 months from a new zelda game reveal to its eventual release.

    None of this is bad. The best Nintendo games always turn out to be the ones that have lengthy wait times. Mario 64, Ocarina Of Time, Wind Waker. It will be good game if it comes out next year. But if it's out after that, it will probably be amazing.

  • SuperSoupy 04/07/2014

    In the sense of 'open world' as we know it, it really isn't much of a deal to take a game that is pretty much open world anyways, and make it more so.

    But on the other hand, it will be very interesting to see how Nintendo of all developers, interpret the theme of 'open-world'. It will likely be something very different to what we're expecting. Currently I'm imagining a GTA/Skyrim structure where you can obtain quests or missions from various parts of a grand map, at any time. That alone is enough to shake up the 25-year old tired Zelda formula. But the likelihood is that Nintendo have something more unique in mind. And I can't wait to hear more.

    I vaguely remember a side-scrolling Superman arcade game from back in the day that was pretty decent.

    Superman does seem pretty cursed these days movie-wise though. Man Of Steel was complete tosh and I worry that the curse of Superman will bring down the Batman v Superman and Justice league movies.

  • Upcoming Assassin's Creed game will be the first not headed by Ubisoft Montreal

  • SuperSoupy 03/07/2014

    OK, no-one's mentioned it yet so I will...

    Does anyone know if this has anything to do with the recent tax hike that Montreal has found itself subject to?

    I'm not sure if the recent tax increases are something that affects all of Canada or just Montreal's region. If it's all of Canada, then sure, this is probably a move made to expand the already stretched-out IP some more. But if the tax increases are regional, this might just be a way to avoid those tax costs.

    Like I said, unsure as to the exact details. Maybe someone else knows?

  • Virginia is a first-person interactive drama inspired by Twin Peaks and X-Files

  • SuperSoupy 02/07/2014

    I really don't like the art style used here at all
    A lot of people said (and still do say) the same about Minecraft, yet that is considered one of last-gen's most defining games.

    The Lego games get repeated high reviews despite their minimalist art styles.

    Thirty Flights Of Loving is a neat little indie game that uses a similar art style to create a dramatic artistic statement while introducing a neat piece of game design that many AAA titles cannot even manage.

    South Park: The Stick Of Truth is a great RPG and possibly the funniest game ever made. The art isn't intense by any means, that doesn't mean it's off-putting or isn't incredibly clever.

    All-in-all, graphics aren't everything. Personally I think this games is visually very cool, in fact, I get put off by more realistic drama-based games: walking the uncanny valley line with cliched characters that distract from what should be an involving narrative. But this, this looks promising to say the least! I can't wait to see more. Go Variable State!!

  • Mario Kart 8 sells approximately 2m in under a month

  • SuperSoupy 27/06/2014

    Good going for MK! Though as fun as it is, it's nowhere near the best Mario Kart (that being Double Dash, while the N64 had the best battle mode).

    It's also reluctant to take the series forward content-wise. I understand them only having 4 new cups in previous games, but in this age of increased storage capacity they could have added a few more cups/tracks. Maybe they'll add some via DLC...

    Still, it's good to see a decent game not be hindered by the sales of the Wii U, in fact it sells well by itself, and even helps sell the console. Damn good.

  • How No Man's Sky stole the show at E3

  • SuperSoupy 25/06/2014

    @Fiddle-sticks I should've mentioned earlier, but I'm referring more to the narrative driven games. The Last Of Us', The Bioshock's, the Walking Dead's of the game world.

    Community-driven, multiplayer games like DayZ, Minecraft, Street Fighter and so on are absolutely fine. Nothing is being ruined because each player will likely have an experience unique to themselves when playing the game. Watching other people's videos of that only goes help them learn more about the game and enjoy it in a similar vein to TV entertainment shows, or even sporting contests. No problem with that.

    But when a Let's Player ruins a game's story, that is at the heart of the experience, and that a group of people spent years making, solely for the sake of some ad revenue they shouldn't deserve to earn... THAT is what's wrong with Let's Plays.
    Reply +1
  • SuperSoupy 25/06/2014

    @Cherub007 That's a good point. But the value of a Let's Play is a likening to a professional review, the main difference is that a review will do the exact same thing, without spoiling the game for the potential customer.

    I could totally tell you the ending to some of the biggest games out now in an annoying manner, and the most pivotal parts of the best story-driven games out there. But I won't. I'd never do that. But a Let's Play maker will, and without remorse if it means he gets some of that lovely ad revenue from your viewing. Hell, I've had games spoiled by Let's Plays without even watching them. Some of those vid's image icons contain huge game spoilers themselves!

    In the end I guess I just can't justify those vids. If the viewer takes a game for it's observational quality instead of interaction, then surely he must feel the same way about watching a full Hollywood movie on Youtube. Except YT doesn't allow that, and yet games suffer from it. Outside of competitive play and a game's community interaction/cooperation, I can't see the sense in Youtube game vids.
    Reply +2
  • SuperSoupy 25/06/2014

    @blarty That's the thing, though. Whatever their opinion of the difference between observation and interaction, or whether the game in question is brilliant or a dud: they definitely WOULD have contributed towards the sales of the game had it not been for the Let's Play video.

    And to be be honest, very rarely do they make Let's Plays of terrible games, because it's no fun for the person making the video. If they do, it's only for a few minutes to make fun of how bad it is, like Ride To Hell: Retribution. But 8 times out of 10 it'll be a current, critically well-received release.
