    October!? I thought the 3DS version was coming out this month, and the WiiU version in October.

    The WiiU version kirby taking even longer to come out then :(

    There's a flock of birds flying through the air in this video.

    I've honestly never seen that in a game before. +1 to you, game, for showing me something that's genuinely new, even if it is a small detail.

    Everything else is questionable, though. Hitting a zombie with multiple objects is fine, except it's the same action again and again, probably in pursuit of the same objective. That shit's gonna get real boring real quick.

    Also, I don't like trailers that keep trying to scream at me "This is fun! This is fun! This is fun!". Flashy colours and brief action shots don't sell 'fun' to me, game. Clever design content and emotional impact does. Show me some of that and we'll get along fine.

    Also, California ain't an island. 'Dead State' would be a more fitting name.


    ....seeing a flock of birds resonating more to me than the game's actual content, can't be a good sign....

  • Assassin's Creed: Rogue is single-player only - report

  • SuperSoupy 06/08/2014

    @aros I'd say it's the AC series that's become tedious rather than Ubisoft themselves. As a game series it's firmly rooted in "if you've played one you've played 'em all" territory. All that's left is the story saga. But since AC3 that's become more and more convoluted with each release, and this new game doesn't seem to change that.

    Give us a new IP or Beyond Good & Evil 2, Ubisoft. Go on, I dare ya!!

  • Hyrule Warriors European limited edition includes a real scarf

  • SuperSoupy 06/08/2014

    @Daryoon
    I dunno why you need to compare it to Batman. Nintendo already did the collectable model give-away with Wind Waker.
    Actually, that's kinda worse. Nintendo already rolled out that amazing model you posted, very nice! Love it! So they could have done it again here (there's certainly good enough opportunity). But instead settled for a cheap scarf.

    And this is a new game, mind. Not an 11-year old re-release.

  • SuperSoupy 05/08/2014

    Arkham City's special edition had a detailed Batman collectible model, an art book, and a bunch of in-game dlc.

    Nintendo has.... a scarf, and possibly some dlc. Well, a model of Link or some characters in combat would've gone down a lot better. But, a scarf is certainly...random..I'll give 'em that.

    But that's all I'll give them. They're not getting my money for that.

    (Mario Golf on 3DS has a similar issue by including Callaway Golf merch branding, indicating a worrying trend from Nintendo).

  • Evolve release date slips into February

  • SuperSoupy 06/08/2014

    Just more confirmation that the next-gen consoles have no reason to be out yet, other than to goad gullible buyers. It says something about their importance when a guy who picked up a ps4 or xb1 at launch, has to wait nearly a year and a half before the real killer-games start dropping.

    2015 will be great for games. With any luck, enough time will have passed by for the then 18 month-old consoles to start getting a discount too.

    Now's the time to save, not buy!

    The original guy's name has clearly only been added to the product primarily to help garner more downloads. And from the looks of people's responses, this has little to do with the original at all.

    If it's the original people want, that game is also available on mobile, and has been for quite some time. I for one can say it is still a lot of fun, even on mobile, and is likely worth more of your time than this new one.

  • EA Access gives players access to triple-A games for $5 a month

    @George-Roper Agreed. Look at movies. It used to be just Netflix, but now there's also Lovefilm, Amazon, NowTV, BlinkBox and that's just off the top of my head. And it's only going to get bigger, with exclusives divided across them all.

    Games will definitely go down the same route. I wouldn't be surprised if next year, Ubisoft use whatever 2015's edition of Assasin's Creed is, to push a similar service for their games.

    Actually seems kinda awesome *! Especially if you're into your yearly FIFA upgrades.

    I can't see us Brits paying 3 a month for it though. If it's $4.99 in the US you can guarantee it'll be at least 4.99 here, possibly 5.99.

    It sucks but companies like to take extreme liberties with conversion pricing.

    *(Edit: Until every publisher in the world catches on, Suddenly 4.99 across 10 publishers ain't so cheap on a monthly basis!)

  • Platinum Games reveals Legend of Korra gameplay

  • SuperSoupy 29/07/2014

    It looks the part, but it doesn't move like the TV show at all. It moves like it's a 'Dynasty Warriors/ Dragoball Z' spin-off. And that's not what the Avatar series is.

    None of the flowing, well choreographed animation from the show is evident here. I'm fairly sure that it will turn out to be an ok game, being Platinum and all, but this certainly isn't 'feeling' uniquely like Avatar at all.

  • Rust dev angers fans by announcing new prototype Riftlight

  • SuperSoupy 28/07/2014

    Money from Garry's Mod went into making Rust, remember. But why should Rust players be footing the bill for Riftlight?
    I'm sure the fans think they know how the industry works, since they're professional fans and everything. But that aside, they're simply not footing the bill. They gave their money to Facepunch in exchange for a product. So now it is Facepunch's money to do with as they please. They could use that money to build a paper aeroplane army if they wanted, it wouldn't be a good idea but they could.

    Anyone complaining needs to better learn two things: How games development works, and how basic commerce works.

  • Shadow of Mordor release date moved forward

  • SuperSoupy 25/07/2014

    @Benno yeah, and more than that. Looks like they literally copy/pasted animation from Assassin's Creed too. How am I meant to see the main guy as unique when he acts like every other moody 'strike-from-the-shadows' hero?

    On the other hand the Orcs look fantastic. The idea of forming personal bonds with enemies makes this more interesting to me than AC: Unity.

    Yeah it's a game where the baddies will be infinitely more interesting than the guy you're actually playing as, and it seems to handle like every other game out there. But the design idea is fresh. If they can pull that off I just may pick this up.

  • Batman: Arkham Knight's Red Hood Story DLC is a GameStop exclusive

  • SuperSoupy 24/07/2014

    @Ajent For what it's worth, I totally agree with you... as long as this doesn't compromise the main game experience by not having it.

    If I get my money's worth from the base game as a standalone piece of games software though, then I'm happy to pick any dlc up as a separate piece of content.

    I'm hoping the latter is the way it goes, because if Rocksteady's Arkhams have taught me anything it's that every bit of money I've spent on them, has been money well spent. I'm happy to buy the game and dlc, because the quality of the content being produced is totally worth it.

  • SuperSoupy 24/07/2014

    @Leben I'm sure Warners would be happily to include it all on one release, but that would mean charging more for just the one product, and that would put this game up against difficult competition. They have to meet a specific price point for their game to initially sell. But if the main game has enough content on it's own, to justify a full retail price tag, then fine. I see no problem buying the standalone game and paying extra for this.

    Yeah I hate the exclusivity nonsense too. But in all honesty in this case, it doesn't look like content that's "carved out" from the core game. It all seems like supplemental or filler content that's been made outside of the framework of the main game. Were it actually part of the main story (like the Catwoman segments of AC for example), cut out and charged extra for, at separate retailers, then that would truly be bad. But this just seems to be standard add-on fare. Add-on fare that will available everywhere soon after the release anyways.

  • SuperSoupy 24/07/2014

    @Leben Fine by me. Why would I even want DLC before I've even played the base game yet?

    The demand for DLC before a game is even released is nonsensical to me. How much does a consumer need to consume before realizing they have too much on their plate that they can eat?

  • SuperSoupy 24/07/2014

    We've contacted GameStop to see if players who miss out on the Red Hood Story Pack will be able to purchase it later.
    Of course they will. They're not going to throw entire DLC's away by restricting them to the pre-order period, or to a single retail outlet.

    Gamestop likely has exclusivity to it, but ONLY for the pre-order period. This is exactly the same hubbub as the Alien Isolation pre-order dlc malarkey.

    You'll all be able to get your hands on it about a month or so after the release date guys, don't fret. And if that's too long to wait, at least you'll still have an entire game to play in the meantime.

  • 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.

  • SuperSoupy 22/07/2014

    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.

    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?

    @Darren
    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.

    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.

    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.

  • 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.
