  • Gearbox's Battleborn throws the FPS and MOBA genres together

    Looks very Team Fortress to me.
    That's a good thing I think. TF2 still looks ace today, and hasn't aged at all in the 6 years its been around for.

    @J.C Same here. Don't know why people rate Gearbox so much.

    Back when I played Borderlands I found it to be boring after the first hour. Well made, but such a chore. But I had hope, since they were highly rated by others and were chosen to finally make Duke Nukem forever.

    And that sucked.

    But I still had hope, early footage of Aliens: CM looked like it was the real deal.

    And that sucked more!

    So I want to like this, but I can't. Not yet.

    Ok, Nintendo. You've got your proof that Zelda crossovers work.

    So now get Capcom to do a "Street Fighter X Zelda" crossover!

  • Microsoft buys Mojang and Minecraft for $2.5bn

  • SuperSoupy 15/09/2014

    Kind of like when Activision merged with Blizzard, when WOW went massive.

    The fans complain, but it's not like Activision have gone and call-of-duty'd up WOW. They saw something that is selling brilliantly the way it is, so they bought it with the intent of making that money. They ain't about to go poking holes in a bucket that's filling with gold.

    Same thing here.

    The fact that all the other non-MS versions of Minecraft are still to be fully supported, only verifies that Microsoft don't want to shake up that gravy train. Otherwise why bother buying it?

    In any case, Notch and co' have made off like bandits. Despite his two-faced statements on condemning MS as an open platform to what has just happened, I don't blame his call here, for that amount of money.

  • Sony insists Vita is here to stay

  • SuperSoupy 12/09/2014

    Sony just need to push the message of compatability with PS4, and develop more tools for such integration, rather than focusing on it as a console in its own right. PS4 is huge right now, and they've got a prime chance to use that to the Vita's advantage.

    For example, making the remote play feature a more streamlined experience for newcomers, then saying to potential customers "How's about being able to play Destiny and GTA 5 when away from home?"

    You watch those Vita/PS4 bundles sell like magic.

  • Microsoft to buy Mojang for $2 billion - report

  • SuperSoupy 10/09/2014

    Crazy U-turn for Notch. I guess he just gave in to the power of the almighty buck. Don't blame him for that amount of money.

    He could happily start a new indie dev and continue developing, and have enough left over to be set for life, even if that falls flat.

    Kinda sucks for anyone playing Minecraft on a Sony console though. If this deal goes through, support for those versions will be drying up pretty quickly. (Same for Minecraft mobile that isn't on a windows phone.)

    @Mr-Writer " 'Not one truly amazing game, save for the two that have been out on PC for a few years anyways' Says who? You?"

    Says time. And critical reception based on archived review scores from both journalists and consumers.

    "And why does there have to be a truly amazing game to justify buying a new console?"

    Because it's a games console.

    "Are you saying no one out there truly loved this game?"

    Not at all. Some people loved this game, fair enough. But you can guarantee if they loved I:SS then they probably loved a lot of the last-gen games even more.

    @Mr-Writer Didn't say anyone's wrong, but your list of launch titles speaks for itself: Not one truly amazing game, save for the two that have been out on PC for a few years anyways.

    No-one's wrong, just saying that a year ago, while millions of people were trying really hard to love Infamous: Second Son, millions more others were truly loving The Last Of Us, and GTA 5.

    Yes there are some amazing-looking games coming out in due course: Arkham, Uncharted and the like, and like I said earlier when those games hit, PS4's value as a next-gen games console will skyrocket. At which point I'll be right there to buy one.

    @electrolite You know what I mean. But I'll clarify:

    It has no games that are worth purchasing the Ł350 console exclusively for.

  • SuperSoupy 09/09/2014

    @grassyknoll When I say no games, I mean first party console exclusives, that are developed specifically for PS4 with the next-gen in mind. That's what's worth buying a new machine for. Aside from LBP 3 none of those titles meet that quota. I could play any of those games right now somewhere else without need of a PS4. Reply -8

    @grassyknoll I agree. It is tired. It is by no means a good thing, or a dig of any kind. It sucked having to play the likes of the Bouncer for a long time, and it sucks now. Reply +4
  • SuperSoupy 09/09/2014

    @Liuwil That's true. But I would of thought that people generally buy consoles because there is already a killer game available to buy for it in the first place. Besides, what if a few games get made based on good sales and they turn out be mediocre when they get released? Buying a Ł400 console on the promise of lots of 9 or 10/10 games, but getting a bunch of 7 or 8/10's, isn't a smart investment. Meanwhile Sony are laughing all the way to the bank because they already have your money.

    Hell, the fact that there's good games on the Wii U right now, is the only reason that console is still selling currently.

    The main thing the PS4 success says to Sony, is that they don't need those great games to sell their console. Those great first-party games will come for sure, it's just not the priority for them. If it were PS4 would have had something amazing to launch with. Until a truly great next-gen only or first party game comes out, my money's staying with me. (Console will hopefully be a bit cheaper by then too).

    It looks like the pinnacle of next-gen titles already. But it seems to me like nobody's letting this one out until it's nothing less than amazing, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

    I said it when it was delayed to Feb and I'll say it again: Take all the time you need Rocksteady. I'd rather wait and have something that I'll remember for years down the line, instead of seeing my favourite game series rushed out by impatient and careless execs.

    Whatever the edition, it's a day one purchase, that's for damn sure.

    We fully anticipate seeing day one reviews from folks who decide to kick the tires, but don't have the time or patience to take our ride for a nice, long road trip.
    Nicely put.

    Avoid the " Youtube Day One Let's Players", people! You're only going to spoil the game for yourself, and despite what they might say, they're not reviewing the game. They can't in that time. Their sole purpose is to farm views for ad revenue, so don't give 'em the satisfaction.

  • SuperSoupy 03/09/2014

    The Steam VR mode gives users what is essentially their own cinema screen to navigate around Steam with. No virtual seats or auditoriums or any of that dressing up gimmick-ness. Just a perfectly suited screen that plays solely towards it's strengths.

    So while movies in a big VR screen is interesting, I'm waiting for the announcement of a Steam VR screen that allows you to actually play videogames on your own personal 'cinema'-like screen.

    @Ian-Beale Every AAA game getting released has corporate suits behind them. Corporations fund games.

    Besides, SOM look alright. Sure they licensed Assassin's Creed's engine and half of it's assets, but it's a game that appears to have been put together exceptionally well. Also the ork-relationship mechanic seems like a fresh idea. If they can pull it off, it may feel samey to handle, but chances are it'll still have a fresh design concept that puts it above most other games out there.

  • Grand Theft Auto 5 radio stations being updated for PC, PS4, Xbox One

  • SuperSoupy 01/09/2014

    The radio stations are arguably my favourite part of the GTA games. While V's was good, I did feel that even though there were quite a few stations, each station was a bit.. 'short'. Or rather, short compared to the increased scale of the environment, meaning that repetition happened far more often than it did in previous games in the series.

    While there were enough stations to suit whatever environment you found yourself in, I'm hoping they'll extend the actual content to cover the amount of time some more.

    @mr2ange I know right!?

    The best that they can come up with these days is some lame 30-min show that is on sometimes on Challenge, presented by some dumb teens who can't tell Command & Conquer from Starcraft, and made to appeal to the broadest of audiences that it doesn't go into detail or even show a love for videogames at all, instead merely serving as a 30-min advert for EA or Activision's latest yearly flagship release.

    A sad state of affairs. But at least, once upon a time, there was GamesMaster.

  • Capcom still Deep Down in development

  • SuperSoupy 29/08/2014

    @Malek86 If it's F2P then it will undoubtedly attract more players. Whether that's a good thing depends on how they implement monetary design into the game.

    If they go down the pay-to-win route, I can't see the game succeeding in the long run. Casual players seem content with throwing money at pay-to-win designed games. But this looks to be a game made to appeal to a more hardcore gaming crowd, who generally deem any pay-to-win mechanic as bad game design.

    A TF2 or DOTA-like F2P mechanic would work better here, I reckon, when considering the audience this game is aimed at.

  • Leading creators back latest Tropes vs Women video

  • SuperSoupy 27/08/2014

    I don't agree with objectifying female characters for the sake of shock value, easy sales, or to appease immature fools. It degrades the industry, the audience, and does nothing to shake off the ultimately juvenile image that videogames cast on society. How can we be taken seriously in today's media when for every 'Portal 2', there's 3 or 4 'Lollipop Chainsaws'?

    But on the other hand, many of this lady's examples are taken out of context from the situation that they're placed in. For example, the AC2 scene shows 1 stereotyped female, but about 10 stereotyped males! The issue there ain't sexism, it's poor story and characters in general. The Bioshock death scene is a very atmospheric and cleverly-designed way of telling a plot point, whilst tapping into a specific emotional response from the player. Not sexist.

    Ultimately, while female objectification in games is a thing, the woman here is fishing for results in the wrong way. She's taking situations that aren't sexist and twisting them to find something to nitpick. She should be looking at situations that exist in an already sexualised context, from a design and storytelling standpoint, to find a decent foothold for argument.

    She cares about the issue, and rightly so, but for the most part her game examples contradict her argument here.

  • Pokémon fighting game Pokkén Tournament announced

  • SuperSoupy 27/08/2014

    @osu Part of the pokemon RPG's gameplay design is based on how the player conducted their exploration. The design is reliant on a semi top-down perspective in order to feel like a portable, pokemon adventure game. So I can see why they retained that graphical perspective.

    There's still more going on in those graphics than the n64 though.
