  • What exactly is going on with the different versions of Fire Emblem Fates?

  • SuperSoupy 19/05/2016

    Cue angry comments from gamers wanting absolutely everything for the least possible price.

    There seems to be more variety here than in the upcoming pokemon games and people are giving those a free pass...

  • Why Zangief is the worst character in Street Fighter 5

  • SuperSoupy 16/05/2016

    Always been saying that Zangief needs his green hand back. Give him that one special move, add a couple of new combos, maybe tone down his life bar a tad, and suddenly he's back in the game! Make it happen Capcom! Reply +1
  • Everything the Assassin's Creed movie trailer tells us

  • SuperSoupy 12/05/2016

    Kinda miffed how the trailer came across as a bit dumber than I thought it would be (the team's last project was the much-smarter-by-comparison Macbeth, and Kanye West/Spanish Inquisition do not blend well). It's one of those trailers that gives you the film's whole story in a minute and a half. But hey, early days so maybe there's more to it.

    Not wholly disappointed as such though. As it stands it already looks the best videogame-based movie ever made.

  • Civilization 6 announced, ahead of October release

  • SuperSoupy 11/05/2016

    Civ 5 has everything that I could possibly want from a Civ game. Not exactly sure what 6 can bring that I haven't already got.

    That said, I felt the same about XCOM before February and now I can't imagine my life without XCOM 2.

    ....oh just bring it on.

  • Pokémon Sun and Moon get release date, starter Pokémon revealed

  • SuperSoupy 10/05/2016

    Is it just me, or was it all downhill after Red, Blue & Yellow? Maybe just nostalgia for the good ol days, but the new critters just don't do it for me.
    The one after gold/silver was the point in my opinion that it started losing focus (black/white was it?), primarily due to the designs of the 'new' pokemon. In the original they fundamentally looked like cool little creatures. But in the more recent additions they just look like strange objects with an odd hieroglyphic-like stripe painted across it.

    And since the quantity of new pokemon now outnumber the original 151, it's gotten to the point that the originals now look out of place in their own game! If I were to stumble across a Vulpix or a Pidgey in this thing I'd be like 'hey, that doesn't look like it belongs here!'.

    Maybe for me too it is a nostalgia thing like you say.... would still give it a go though!

  • Chaos Theory creator plays Splinter Cell's greatest ever level

  • SuperSoupy 10/05/2016

    @Monkey_Puncher Oh God yes. I never got round to playing 'Double Agent' but that first trilogy of games were bloomin' brilliant. Back in the day I would play that over Metal Gear anytime.

    While I would like a new-gen Splinter that's a little less 'Hollywood' than the more recent ones, a re-release of the classics would be fantastic.

  • SuperSoupy 06/05/2016

    I suppose I should jump on the bandwagon soon.

    Thing is, any future support for games or any other application is going to be designed primarily with Win10 in mind, whether it's a good OS or not.

    Support for applications on Win7 is going to slowly die down soon.

    But ugh, that butt-ugly tile art style!! And where the hell did the 'Computer' button go when you click start?? It's been replaced with a Flipbook app icon and a Xbox One advert!!

  • SuperSoupy 29/04/2016

    @pacrifice To be honest, Karl Urban didn't look the part for Dredd, but that's not to say he didn't do a damn good job. They're actors, becoming other characters is what they do. And given the credentials for this person, I'd say it's some good casting.

    The writing and directing team is where people need to keep an eye on!

    For example, I can't say I've seen any of the director's previous work. But the script is from a guy with NO previous credentials. While the screenplay comes from a guy who wrote the recent Ninja Turtles movie, the Snow White Huntsman movies, and Divergent.

    Take from that what you will...

    @riceNpea To be honest, if I bought an NX around May next year, and Nintendo offered a £4.50-a-month service where I could play the best of their back catalogue, as well as get general discounts on their store... I would certainly be intrigued by that. Reply +7

  • Nintendo's NX console launches March 2017 globally

  • SuperSoupy 27/04/2016

    I'm disappointed that there will be no NX reveal at this year's E3, which I was highly expecting. But gotta say, I admire Nintendo's approach here. They're going against all expectations to schedule things their own way, rather than falling in line with an industry's schedule. It's a headstrong approach that while very Nintendo in character, is the sort of thing real success stories are made of.

    So all the best to them with it. I can see a decent Zelda E3 showcase resulting in lots of console pre-orders.

  • Capcom has come up with a solution for Street Fighter 5's rage quitting problem

  • SuperSoupy 19/04/2016

    @patchbox360 I guess because there's always the chance that people get disconnected regardless of rage quitting. My internet connection cut out during a match on a couple of occasions. A punishment for cutting a match short is fair, but people shouldn't have to lose their league points for accidental disconnects. Reply 0
  • SuperSoupy 19/04/2016

    we are also loosening the restrictions on finding an opponent," Capcom said.
    Not sure about this. I'd rather wait a while if it means getting matched to someone who is at my level, than waiting a few seconds and getting thrown into a game against Street Fighter's equivalent of Neo.

    I hope people's ranking are still fairly represented following this.

  • The soul-destroying grind to unlock Street Fighter 5 character colours

  • SuperSoupy 01/04/2016

    As soon as they put a price tag on the colours with the in-game shop, their options to overhaul the colour-unlocking will be extremely limited. People are going to feel ripped off if they buy an in-game colour, if Capcom makes it easier to unlock that colour in-game an update later.

    If they do change how this is all going to work, it needs to happen before they launch the Zenny shop, or else they will face another round of major complaints.

    I am loving this game! But admittedly, the launch was an almighty clusterfuck, particularly felt by the casual SF player.

  • Meet the tester who changed Street Fighter

  • SuperSoupy 30/03/2016

    Him, Combofiend and the rest have done a great job making SFV readable in today's online-focused gaming direction.

    One of the great things about Street Fighter's 1-on-1 game is in how players essentially communicate with each other over simple on-screen movements and gestures. To an extent it's almost a language in and of itself and how the team made that work over SFV's new network is grand.

  • Dara O Briain's Go 8 Bit is the UK's next video game TV show

  • SuperSoupy 21/03/2016

    I think that promoting games on TV as opposed to online can be great to all those involved as it allows to reach audiences that otherwise would be unreachable. The main difference is that when you go online, you go looking for the content. TV brings it to you.Done right (and I'm still yet to see an example of this in today's age by the way!), it can strengthen the medium as a whole and promote it intelligently to strip away its unfortunate mass-market juvenile reputation.

    I'm not hating on online, nor TV. Just saying that TV can be a potentially great expansion for games if the content is done right.

    Charlie Brooker God-bless-'im makes a good go of it from time to time but even then it can do with a more honest approach instead of an A-Z list being bigged up by people no-one cares about. Inform people about the psychology of great game design, instead of telling people what Zelda is while hanging a gameplay video on the screen like its a set of keys shaking in front of a baby, and watch the show stick in people's minds!

    Ultimately, TV's content always has to be watered down to appeal to the broadest audience. While reaching more people than your average online show, you're still giving people the same simple watered-down formula that does no more to help gaming's reputation than the unknown-yet-better online show. A games-themed 'Mock the Week' can't change all that, but hey, given the small exposure that games has on TV today I'll give it a shot.

  • Valve has a new game out soon, and it's electrifyingly good

    Sounds like the 'Wii Sports' of VR.

    ..which is ace, as Wii Sports was arguably the Wii's best game: A title that best showcases what the piece of kit can do, while being good enough of a game in it's own right to warrant repeated play for the entirety of the console's lifespan.

  • 10 days after launch, Street Fighter 5 online play is much improved

  • SuperSoupy 26/02/2016

    Playing on PS4. I've found online to be pretty darn sound. I'm never in training mode for more than a minute before being thrown back into a ranked match.

    Although I will point an issue that I've noticed: After playing this game for a considerable amount of time since launch, I'm finding that I still suck balls at it, to the point that I can only conclude that it must be the game that is wrong.

    Capcom need to totally patch that.

  • Watch: Are fighting games losing popularity?

  • SuperSoupy 20/02/2016

    It's unfair to compare SFV's impact to SFIV in terms of popularity.

    SFIV marked the true return of the franchise after 8 years, was the first great fighting game in years to the point that it single-handed sparked the development of more fighting games. It was as much a nostalgia trip as it was a great game in it's own right.

    SFV doesn't have that same sense of freshness to ride on. That said, Capcom have built substantial online and community features into V to develop its player base over time. It's fine if it's not as huge right now, because Capcom are playing the long game with SFV.

  • Street Fighter 5 review

  • SuperSoupy 18/02/2016

    With so many games now launching in an incomplete form and receiving content later (hopefully for free), it does lessen the importance of reviews, but perhaps someone will find a new review model eventually.
    I was about to make this point but you beat me to it :-)

    It'd be cool for Eurogamer to update this review once all content is in and server issues addressed.
    Reply +2
  • SuperSoupy 18/02/2016

    @Acidizer As far as controllers go, that's purely down to what is comfortable with the player. A guys using a 360 controller can be just as comfortable as someone who shelled out £150 on a fightstick. Personally I find the Dualshock4 lovely to use. Was thinking of picking up a Madcatz fightpad pro but they do seem a tad expensive for what they are.

    As for funding, I highly doubt you'd see a more polished game if Capcom had funded it themselves (heck if Resi 6 is anything to go by we'd likely have a got a worse game). They put Sony's money to great use here. If Capcom taking a step back meant that a cheaper product was the result I'd agree, but I really don't think that's the case here.

    single-player fans will be left wanting - for now, at least - and multiplayer fans may struggle online as Capcom sorts its servers out.
    The problems brought up (server issues, single-player content) definitely comes across as issues that will be addressed in the near future. Once that's sorted this will probably be an 'essential'. The gameplay comments in the review are spot on. As a casual fighting game player I've achieved something playing this that I've never had in other games.

    Repeatedly losing online to hard opponents, I went into training mode and spent an hour simply trying to nail a single combo. I went back into online and man, the feeling of nailing that combo against a similarly difficult opponent felt like a REAL gaming achievement. Forget those crappy post-it notes that pop up in the corner of the screen, THIS was a real achievement. When I eventually won the fight I literally felt like I (and not the character) had levelled up.

    Everything, gaming-wise, is in place for SFV and feels right. Knowing that the negative issues will be addressed soon doesn't put me off this game.

  • Street Fighter 5's first DLC character, Alex, live in March

  • SuperSoupy 11/02/2016

    @Malesoun I don't mean that V is weaker because of character rosters, and certainly not it's online support (which is vastly superior to IV's).

    I do think that IV's mechanics are better than V's though... currently. The thing about SFIV's 'cheap tricks', is that they required a crazy amount of skill to pull off. Seeing players integrate the tricks into their combos ended up being more impressive than dismissive.

    With V it's like they've turned a focus onto tighter mechanics (which yeah ultimately is good) at the game's core to appeal to a broader audience. It feels good to play at the moment, but you don't get that same feeling when spectating like in IV.

    Like IV, V needs a good year or so to go through the community and get feedback. It should be as fun to watch as it is to play and in time I reckon it'll get there. Those barely mentioned free balance updates are going to end up being the game's saving grace.

    @alimokrane I'll give you that in it's current final state, SF4 is a better game than SFV will be on release.

    BUT, in theory SFV's retail price will be all you will ever have to pay for the game and it's subsequent content.

    That's not to mention all the amazing social content that actually does come with SFV on release, like following pro players and watching replays.

    I love watching the Capcom Pro Tour, but my god during SF4 it was a hell of an effort. Imagine not only having easy access to all of that through SFV's interface, being able to watch matches that are not streamed video, but are instead recreated using the game's assets, perfect quality in-engine on console, on your screen.

    That kind of spectating, for me, is completely worth admission, and more games should do it, not just fighting games.

    You can say SF4 has more characters, but 5 has waaay more online content.

    This just in: Street Fighter V to receive free updates, all future character DLC can be unlocked in-game or optionally paid for.

    People in 2016: "I'm sick of all this 'announced DLC' nonsense. I get paying for new DLC a year after a game's release, but anything released within the first 6 months should just come with the base game... for free."
