  • Titanfall: Expedition DLC drops next month

  • SuperSoupy 14/04/2014

    I'm not against new maps as DLC, provided that they are maps that make a substantial difference to the game.

    The current maps in Titanfall are great, but it doesn't matter which one you play, you're going to have the same experience whichever stage you're on.

    Unless the new maps actually add something that's truly new to the game, I won't be throwing my money at it.

    To be honest I couldn't care less if this came out on PC/PS4 or somehow even 3DS. I was just stirring some crap up onto a fish-hook and throwing it into a sea of comments. Thanks for being the gullible fish that bites ;-)

    What's that, PS4 owners? You want this, with Project Morpheus integrated? It's simple enough to port this in CryEngine?

    Aww, SOREEEEE, this product is only available on PC. AWW SOREEE.

  • Nintendo Pocket Football Club review

  • SuperSoupy 11/04/2014

    @MisterFalseName Nah. The Wii sequel 'Mario Strikers Charged' is a totally different game. It's a mess of a title that tried to add loads of weapons and features, which would normally be fine. But in doing so it completely ruined the core gameplay of the Gamecube original.

    The GC verison is, no joke, the most fun football game I've ever played, and is perfectly suited for a 3DS remake.

    I'd love for Nintendo to release a version of the Gamecube's 'Mario Smash Football' on 3DS. Heck, I'd even take a WiiU virtual console port!

    It wasn't graphically demanding, very simple gameplay. But it. Just. Worked. Worked so damn well.

    Plus, these days, I can't see Nintendo letting a taunt like this one pass in one of their games:

  • inFamous: Second Son breaks 1m sales in nine days

  • SuperSoupy 10/04/2014

    Judging by the comments here, it very much comes across as a 'meh' game (a couple of comments actually use that exact description).

    Only reason it seems to have done so well is because it's on a console where no killer releases have landed just yet. Same reason Knack did well initially.

    Everyone who bought a PS4 is understandably tempted by this game, regardless of quality, when the only alternatives are up-RESed PS3 games.

    @Alestes
    Who cares about the Sonic Boom development? How will it affect games like Yakuza 1&2 HD?


    Because contrary to uninformed belief, game development needs to happen in order to make video-games exist.

    You think these titles just fall out of Yu Suzuki's backside coated in lucky charms?

    It's long, hard work by determined and talented people that makes things you love possible. Yes, even the Yakuza games. So even if some gamers like yourself don't care about development, every gamer certainly SHOULD.

    That open sunflower fields shot was, rather oddly, the creepiest bit of that trailer for me. All the gore and monsters etc is common-place in games these days. but man, that one shot....

    How many times have you had a dream that took place in an initially calm-looking setting like that, only for something completely horrible to come in out of nowhere and turn it into a nightmare?

  • Footage leaks of canned Star Wars game starring Darth Maul

  • SuperSoupy 09/04/2014

    For some reason, I've never seen the lightsbaers truly work as a game mechanic.

    1313 shifted focus from the lightsbaers to gun combat and it managed to feel more like Star Wars than any other SW game in development.

    This has some potential, but it just makes me want 1313 more :-(

  • Kinect Sports Rivals review

  • SuperSoupy 08/04/2014

    @McPoo
    I've got nothing against the Kinect but they shouldn't still be chasing after the Wii Sports crowd with these mini game collections.
    Yeah.

    The casual Wii Sports crowd is now the Candy Crush crowd. The COD crowd is now the Titanfall crowd. The Mario target audience is now the Knack crowd (judging by sales, and I'm still scratching my head as to how the hell that one happened).

    Point is, the gaming crowd is a constantly changing crowd. Pandering to an audience six years too late, will do them no favours.

    @Kysen
    Millions of $ went into improving the tech, then they bundled it into every purchase and this is the result. A solution without a problem.
    It's not that they're bundling it in with each console purchase. The issue is that while the hardware is updated and awesome, the game software is the same old shtick from last-gen.

    Someone should really tell MS that releasing a new game on new hardware that relies on old techniques that barely worked back then, doesn't make it NEW now.

    Kinect 2 is a solid piece of kit, it's just a shame it doesn't have the software to match.

  • Watch The Simpsons' Minecraft-themed intro

  • SuperSoupy 07/04/2014

    @MrMattAdz Yeah know what you mean.

    It's a weird cartoon world at the moment: The Simpsons is trying to be Family Guy because it's not funny anymore by itself, Family Guy is ripping off The Simpsons because the whole foundation of the show is based on the same concept, and South Park is watching them both as if to say "I don't know who you guys are anymore!".

    ...yeah...I agree with you South Park.

  • SuperSoupy 04/04/2014

    @Rederiet
    Then don't play the game? It's not a slap to your face if you're not a consumer then. Why do you even care?
    Because even though I won't play it, the IP alone will ensure that this 'game' will still make a fair few million, despite it being a copycat unoriginal mess of a title.

    Because when execs see the success of 'games' like this, they think it's a good idea to ruin games that are good, and that I do play, like Sim City, Rollercoaster Tycoon, and Dungeon Keeper. Games that previously set a benchmark for design and development, are now reduced to greedy shovel-ware to cash in for the 1% of the publisher. The actual developers either miss out on bonuses or are shut down altogether.

    Because 'games' like this set the industry back 20 years, when we should be on the cusp on a technological revolution. It annoys me to know the amazing devices we have in today's world, are being primarily used for tripe like this 'game'. By joking about that in this 'game', they're telling you that they're happy with that.

    ....ok rant over. Enjoy your 'game'.

    I have the the same issue here as 'The Simpsons: Tapped Out' and that is this...

    Just because they're openly aware of the pay-to-play grind, and make jokes about cheap soulless microtransactions, doesn't make it ok. They're still doing all of those things. If anything it's a bigger slap in the face to the consumer.

    Pfft. The image in this article of Peter on the toilet pretty much sums this game up for me!

    At least South Park knows how to handle their games now!

    @Kyizen I for one, would love to see a new Nintendo IP. Or a risky re-invention of an existing one at least.

    Don't get me wrong, I do love me some Mario Kart, but I also remember the fresh joy of games like Luigi's Mansion, Pikmin, Mario Smash Football, and Metroid Prime.

    To accommodate waggle controls, the same reason why the tracks were so stupidly wide on the Wii version.
    But Nintendo gave up on the waggle controls with Mario Kart DS. Ever since then the corner-boosting has been time-based, and it's not nearly as good!

    Does anyone know if the Gamecube/N64 traditional 'waggle' is back for this? It's a huge part of PROPER mario kart gameplay.

    one of the best looking console games (apart from infamous 3) was Super Mario 3D world
    Truth be told, 3D World did have some of the nicest-rendered square platforms I've ever seen in a game.

    Douchbag-sarcasm aside though, the new Mario Kart does look gorgeous! I'm not sure about how classic split-screen multiplayer will fare with only one player being allowed to use a WiiU Pad, or not picking up a new item if you drag a current one, but I guess we'll see.

    The reviews are going to gush over it regardless, so may have to playtest it at EGX to see for myself.

  • SuperSoupy 31/03/2014

    @George-Roper
    And that interests me, a gamer, how?
    That's the point. It's not meant to interest you in that regard because you're not the target audience for this kind of implementation of the device. It would, however, interest the millions of people in professions outside of gaming, and those who aren't interested in OR as a gaming device (who do outnumber the games industry). The fact that the OR is so applicable outside of games (intentional or not) is a testament to its potential.

    Kinect.
    Yeah, as a gaming consumer device it has indeed been flogged and run dry by the gaming gimmick machine. However, again, outside of games, Kinect is used quite extensively. It likely doesn't interest you as a gamer, but it doesn't need to. Yet that's not to say that it's not extremely effective in its use outside of games.

    Doctors use Kinect, for example, to control computers with motion gestures during operations. Even back in gaming, devs use kinect to generaate their own mocap and facial mocap too.

    No matter what the device, Kinect or OR, focusing on the smaller, bland uses like social media ,Skype integration, and a glorified gaming controller (which is what's expected of them), is detracting from seeing the bigger picture of their uses. I would prefer to see the Rift as something that could teach, aid development in other mediums, or (in the case of doctors and kinect) even help save lives. Any substantial cash injection that pushes the device to be seen in those ways, is fine by me.

    @George-Roper "Problem is, it won't be iterated just to games, and that's even if they decide to keep games in the picture at all."

    This is a problem? If anything this is a bonus! VR has an amazing capability outside of games!

    Imagine having a basic eye test in your own home, to find out if you have to bother going down to Specsavers for a more in-depth test. Or developing exercises for the partially blind. Or testing flight simulation for development of new air-engineering techniques. Or setting up kinect-like cams in living room corners, and having chats with people virtually in their own homes without leaving your own.

    To see this iterated JUST to the next Portal or COD or whatever, would be a damn shame, quite frankly.

    @jasonchurch I can't really see it primarily as a major platform for the next Farmville or crap like that.

Facebook is basically a huge money injection that allows them to do what they want, that no previous small kickstarter (by comaprison) could of allowed them to do. Reply -6
  • SuperSoupy 28/03/2014

    If it's free then Facebook won't profit from it, therefore there's nothing at risk from having Minecraft on VR. Notch is indeed being a big ol' baby and taking his ball and running just 'cuz he's rich and he can.

    Way to go alienating potentially millions of new Minecraft players, Notch!

  • This is what The Amazing Spider-Man 2 video game looks like

  • SuperSoupy 28/03/2014

    Well, it looks like the team had 2 goals:

    - Recapture the open city aweseomeness that was 2004's Spider-Man 2 (I used to play that game literally just to swing around he city, so fun). This mechanic alone gave the game its own sense of identity. Not so sure about the kewwl camera though, that might be a bit too distracting from focusing on getting around.

    - Make it an Arkham clone. Dammit, what's the point of giving it its identity back if you're just going to clone the stealth and combat mechanics? Also, no other game has matched Arkham's combat style so they've got a big challenge there. That said, if you're going to copy a game, might as well copy the greats.

    All in all it sure looks like it could be fun. Here's hoping for a return to Spider-Man 2 greatness!!

  • SuperSoupy 27/03/2014

    I can see why they'd want to make a WW2 game now. With the major competitors battling to see who can make the best modern/future war FPS game, the gate is wide open for a WW2 game to run un-apposed.

    The problem though, is that instead of being clever or particularly inventive with the opportunity here, this merely just seems like another typical shooter. Typical right down to dumb modern FPS cliches (I doubt they had super slo-mo sniper bullets in WW2).

    Even though it's declaring iteself to be different, it looks just like it'll play out like every other modern military shooter. And like Hall and Oates, I Can't Go For That.

    ....No Can Do.
