  • Controversial mass murdering game Hatred appears on Steam Greenlight

  • SuperSoupy 17/12/2014

    So, what's the point of this game?

    As a blaster it looks alright, except that there's already a bunch of isometric blaster games out there as it is.

    Is it meant to be some kind of statement on the horrors of public shootings? Is it trying to get that message across by making the player feel in the same way that 'This War of Mine' or 'Papers Please' managed? Perhaps, given the balls-out title 'Hatred'. But the fact that the main guy in this game is played up to be some kind of dark, brooding cool-ish anti-hero, contradicts that argument.

    I can see this game's value as a statement that provokes emotion from the player. But if it turns out to fail in that regard, and instead just be a blatant run-of-the-mill shooter with a controversy play intended solely to gather media attention for the purpose of sales.... then I think I'll pass.

  • Digital Foundry vs Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker

  • SuperSoupy 13/12/2014

    @weltysparrow So established is Nintendo's IP and fan base, that they really don't need to compete with MS and Sony in order to find success in their own products. Sure the WiiU ain't matching PS4 in terms of sales, but Nintendo have never seen themselves as direct rivals to Sony, and as a result do not feel like they're losing out against them.

    It's always been Ninty's policy to seek out audiences where there isn't one, while other console makers fight over existing markets. It's for that reason alone why the original Wii was such a hit, why other companies often end up copying Nintendo, and why they can afford the time and resources to polish their assets to such a standard as achieved by the likes of 'Captain Toad'.

    That's well worth the price of a £200 console if you ask me.

    @enfilade That's true. But LBP3 is fortunate to have itself attached to a PS4 bundle.

    And I imagine console bundles have been selling quite a bit this weekend, which is good for both the game and Sony.

    Fellow Nintendo new release Super Smash Bros. only managed 13th place in the chart. That includes sales of both the Wii U and 3DS incarnations.
    Maybe Smash would break the top 5, if Nintendo would ship more than 12 copies of the version that comes with the GC adapter!!

    I for one would buy it right this second if the set wasn't limited to pre-orders.

  • The case for 30fps PC gaming

  • SuperSoupy 30/11/2014

    Is it me or do things running at 60fps appear unnatural and floaty?

    Seeing as the humn eye cannot process anything more than roughly 48fps, simply upping the frame count in order to market an incrimation that will go largely unnoticed as games start going above 60fps, seems completely redundant to me.

    If I buy a PS4 and get GTA V, I imagine I'll be having way too much fun experiencing no lag because of the 30fs, to care about risking a 60fps which will only be marginally noticable, feel unnatural, and potentially cause lots of lag in my game.

    30fps is fine by me.

  • Super Smash Bros. for Wii U review

  • SuperSoupy 28/11/2014

    Personally I thought Mario 3D World should have been a 5/10. 6 at best.

    I really need this game to be great. Getting to use a GC pad again is a damn good start.

    And while there may be some things seemingly missing in the game (limited 8 player stages, etc). A promising online mode which Nintendo is FINALLY getting into the habit of utilizing, means that it should have plenty of replayability.

    Please review the 3DS version separately. It is a completely different game by a different developer, and actually decent.
    Well, the wiiu version currently has a metacritic of 38.

    The 3DS version currently has a metacritic of...39.

  • Grand Theft Auto 5 now UK's best-selling game ever

  • SuperSoupy 24/11/2014

    @Old_Books
    the games are possibly as bad as they have ever been.
    They're clearly selling Sonic on the back of it being a brand, rather than its quality as a compelling video game.

    Not saying that others in the charts ain't doing that, mind. I mean every other game in the top 10 is a bloody sequel! But at least those other games have a certain level of quality to attempt to match the scale of the brand that they're advertising.

    It's clear just by looking at Sonic Boom, with the character redesigns, that Sega are simply trying to re-package it, rather than re-design it. They're going about it all the wrong way and so I'm not surprised that the sales reflect that.

    Asphalt 8.

    That's how you get F2P racing done on mobiles (by not actually basing the game's entire design around monetisation).

    I imagine EA are looking to copy and paste this with their own brand. But unless they can do one better in terms of originality in the gameplay department, I won't be looking twice at this.

  • Apple removes the "free" label from F2P games

  • SuperSoupy 20/11/2014

    This isn't to make things easier for adults or less confusing for kids.

    All it is, is Apple covering their own asses so when little Billy 'accidentally' spends £9000 on Candy Crush, Apple can hold up their hands and say 'well WE NEVER said that it was free.

    Kind of seems criminal (or at the very least, shady) that they are acknowledging their fuck up by changing this, but are essentially allowed to continue the practice under a different label.

  • Nintendo isn't working on any paid DLC for Super Smash Bros.

  • SuperSoupy 20/11/2014

    Awesome.

    Can't argue with free DLC. Also can't argue with not adding content later that should have been on there from the start.

    That said, I won't be paying for and downloading anything from Nintendo, until those downloads are tied to my account and not the console.

    The only way I would do that right now is if the content is free, so yes, as long as Ninty's content is console-tied, free is good.

  • The joys of GTA Online

  • SuperSoupy 19/11/2014

    GTA Online... to be honest I just cannot join a game without getting shot at constantly.

    I can only imagine it would get awesome when the co-op elements come together in heists and missions and so forth. But at the moment, the game really needs a better emphasis on player communication. Playing on PS3, I have no microphone headset, and chances are neither do the numerous people that I'm thrown into a game with. And so no-one can stop for a moment to extend a hand to anyone else.

    Actually, this is the reason I'm waiting for the PC version. It ain't the 60 fps or the graphical tweaks or even the movie editor. It means that I'll have a mic and a keyboard, and so can actually communicate with people that I'm playing with. At that point, GTA Online will truly shine.

  • Make every bullet count

  • SuperSoupy 19/11/2014

    Let us explore those spaces, populate them with characters that ring true and situations that defy easy answers. Acknowledge that war is more than just an excuse for a turret shoot-out and a cutscene soundtracked by the Last Post, but an experience that forces difficult choices. Genuinely difficult choices that make us question ourselves, not just deciding whether or not to press X and execute the villain at the end. We're grown-ups. We can take it. Make those bullets count.
    Characters that ring true.
    Situations that defy easy answers.
    An experience that forces difficult choices.

    This is the sort of thing that should be applied to every game, not just our CODs and Battlefields.

    If anything, games like the new COD aren't just missing what makes an atmospheric war game, they're missing what makes a game compelling in the first place! It's a franchise that seriously needs to go back to the drawing board.

    As for This War of Mine, I'm really hoping the hype is accurate. Seeing an indie dev come out of nowhere to steal GOTY awards from under the noses of the AAA cash cows, for the right reasons (i.e. fundamentally making a compelling game), would be a great lesson to teach them.

  • Video game price rises spark UK inflation bump

  • SuperSoupy 18/11/2014

    @MadAngryGamer
    it's worth noting that current-gen release prices are still cheaper than N64 cartridges used to be all those years ago.
    I payed £60 for Conker on N64. But that was the exception. The majority of N64 games were £50, which seems to be the norm for console releases right now.

    However, disk-based releases today would have been £25 at the time of the PS1/N64. And while the average last-gen release today is £30, going from £30 to £50 for current-gen games, in such a short space of time is a hell of a bump!

    On top of that, Conker on N64 didn't ask for more money via IAP after I'd already paid for it. With games like Assassin's Creed and Destiny establishing that as the norm, it turns out the newer games are more costly, regardless of the cartridge vs disk format.

  • SuperSoupy 14/11/2014

    You gotta wonder in this F2P-IAP loaded games era, why a franchise like AC, that every year pulls in millions and millions of £ without even having to mention microtransactions, feels that this is something they need to do.

    They clearly don't need to do this. Neither did Rockstar with GTA 5.

    It's purely greed.

    I get that for your money you're getting items you can just unlock in-game anyways. But that itself raises a coin where both sides are dirty:

    1) Unlocking items instantly without having to earn them in-game is essentially a cheat. Cheats are fine. They've been in games from the start. But we've never had to pay the publishers for cheats before the age of IAPs. Cheats have now become another casualty in the long list of 'gaming aspects that should have been on the disc from the start but are now paid for dlc' (like costumes, soundtracks, etc)

    2)If a player who paid full retail price for 'AC Unity' has to work/grind twice as hard to unlock a weapon, because the devs want to alter this part of the game's design to encourage the player to pay even more.. That. Is. Wrong.

    Greed is greed, Ubisoft. And you are a business after all. But when is enough enough?

    The average save file is like, what, 15kb? Maybe 15 MB if there's some add-ons involved (provided you're not backing up the actual add-ons themselves. So you can store that, but only that.

    The big questions hanging over the series remain, and will continue to do so until the campaigns abandon their stifling linearity, and the multiplayer introduces ideas that can genuinely be called new, not just new to Call of Duty.
    That's all I need to hear. The single-player campaign in recent CoDs have been nothing but glorified shooting galleries, more linear than a ruler, and only serve to house a Michael Bay-esque set piece that the game's marketing can push on the promise that this is actually something good.

    It's a shame that this year's edition does little to shake that up, as it clearly has all the potential in the world to be the best, and is a finely polished and well made product.

    I don't think an entire game engine can be judged based on a title that is only in Alpha.

    Of course there's going to be optimisation issues on PS4, that's not the engine's fault. The game itself simply isn't in a finished state yet.

    Write this article again come February and I'll be more inclined to nod in agreement.

  • SuperSoupy 05/11/2014

    @georgeflecknell I know what you mean. Re-releasing last gen's games again on the newer machines, doesn't make them current gen, or any newer for that matter.

    But they could've easily just ported GTA onto the PS4/PC as it was, knowing full well that it would sell another 500 mil. Instead though, they've opted to add a slew of both graphical and gameplay add-ons to justify the upgrade. And in the case of the PC version, that's without all the extra content that will come from 3rd party mods (*crosses fingers for Oculus Rift support*).

    It's a worthy upgrade in my book, and while not technically a new game, it certainly takes advantage of new tech in ways that other 'properly new' games haven't even managed.
