  • Paedophiles, lures and susceptible children: the UK tabloids take on Pokémon Go

  • SuperSoupy 12/07/2016

    The UK's newspapers, amid the maelstrom of the biggest political turmoil of modern times, have found a page or two to take on new mobile phenomenon Pokémon Go.
    Says it all right there really. What? A nose-diving economy in the face of the biggest European fallout in decades? A new PM that 0% of people voted for? Nah, it's gotta be about Pokemon Go and Gazza's mental health.

    "Meanwhile in other news, Gazza's off the wagon again in shameful pictures too dispespectful to show to the world, which we will now show you! Yeah, look at that, poor bugger. This must be so embarrassing for him. Stay away kids, I don't care if there's a Pikachu nearby, he's gonna get a pik-at-chu if yer not careful! Did we mention Pokemon is bad?"

    @spekkeh I gave in and got the APK last night. I actually really dig it (so far at least). My morning commute has never been quite so fun! Walking out of a train station into a boosted-up PokeStop, and taking notice of local landmarks that I've never noticed before playing this game is something quite special. Reply +1

    @LazyDan Finally, a critical opinion of some sort! (With all the EG articles about this game I would've thought there'd be a review on here by now).

    I just want to know if it's genuinely a solidly good game or not. Sounds intriguing for sure. Some flaws but it seems the social innovation pros outweigh the cons.

  • Things fall apart: Looking back at Resident Evil 5

  • SuperSoupy 04/07/2016

    Fantastic game. Played through it co-op all the way with someone and was easily one the best co-op games I've ever played. Managing and trading in the resi-patented inventory was handled beautifully, as was relying on your team-mate during heavy combat segments. Puzzles were fun, characters never grated, and the feeling of being back up against a wall with your buddy shooting down waves of oncoming baddies was just as intense as resi 4. Except now it was more fun, because your friend was right there with you.

    I appreciate that they were brave enough to introduce co-op to 5 after the near-perfect resi 4, while applauding that they actually pulled it off. But how they balls'd it up massively in Resi 6 I'll never know.

    @Jackie_Chiles @Jackie_Chiles
    They've toned her down out of fear.
    This is the same game that has an 85% exposed blonde buxom wrestler in it. A game where pretty much every female character has their ass out in some way. If they don't have their ass out (i.e. Chun-Li) then they make a "sexy" costume that can be swapped out on her.

    Point being: Capcom ain't scared of flashing the flesh at all (just look at Urien's upcoming costume in his budgie-smugglers). It's simply a design aesthetic choice. Anyone looking into it for more than that is looking into it too much.

  • Zelda: Breath of the Wild needs to sell 2m copies to profit

  • SuperSoupy 01/07/2016

    @Reedo I'm not doubting the quality of Nintendo's employees in the slightest. I know they'll do an amazing job. I'm simply curious as to the sheer manpower of talent going into this, and whether 100 is enough for a title of this scale.

    Witcher 3 must have had more than 100 people working on it, while Rockstar North famously had 1000 working on GTA. Considering the sheer size of this Zelda, if anything I hope that its devs aren't being worked to the point of dropping!

    For Nintendo's biggest AAA game (if not biggest brand IP), that... ain't a huge number of devs. Here's hoping the guys over there can make it work (looks quite tasty so far).

  • Fatherhood isn't the shortcut to emotional complexity games wish it was

  • SuperSoupy 28/06/2016

    I don't think E3's been a theme of parenthood for parenthood's sake. Games have recently been able to convey such empathy where it was tougher to earlier. Not that it's been impossible until just now, which I ain't saying at all. But with each passing year tech and storytelling techniques are really becoming more impressive tools to achieve such a thing. Some of the games other commenters have listed here is a testament to that.

    That said, I doubt the Death Stranding bit is about parenthood at all. Knowing Kojima it's probably Reedus hugging a clone of himself from another timeline or some malarkey.

  • Surprise! Street Fighter 5 gets Balrog alongside Ibuki this week

  • SuperSoupy 27/06/2016

    @Sagara_Sousuke_x No worries. It's simply down to support from Capcom for the game. If it isn't selling then future support and development is not going to be a priority for them. And future fighting games won't be on the toip of their to-do list. This would be a shame because SFV is widely touted as the go-to fighting game as far as pro tournaments go. It's the main event at EVO this year, and has the most promising prize pool in fighting games with the capcom pro tour. Even EG are hosting it at EGX this year. As well as this SFV has a great little social element in the game where you can follow your favourite fighters and view/learn by watching their replays.

    But even Diago has been saying lately that he's unsure of SFV's future next year. When one of the best players ever in the game is saying that, something needs to be done. It would be a shame to see such promising social development in the game dry out because of a questionable business model. But ultimately, the only way a company is going to take notice of what people want more of is if those people take notice of their product.

    @Sagara_Sousuke_x I'd be ok with it if the base game wasn't full price. They release half a game you should only pay for half for it.

    With that said, if it means raising awareness of the FGC in this the era of Twitch then I'm willing to pay for a piece of DLC or two. Other games out there have shadier marketing polices. I been looking forward to Balrog for ages so glad I can get a hold of him soon.

    Besides, there ain't going to be a season 2 if people don't support season one. And beneath the terrible lack of product presentation, SFV is a flipping brilliant fighting game.

    :P In all seriousness though, I don't mind a season pass so long as it's for extra content that's worth making use of (currently loving XCOM2's pass). Personally I was all over Stick of Truth and wanted more when it was done. So I'm happy with this.

    Bit of a shame with it being the ONLY show on all of TV about games. Here's hoping that Ginx's focus on esports goes some way to there being a show covering games tournaments being a thing.

    Would love to go down to my local pub one day and be able to watch the Capcom pro tour.

  • 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.

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

  • 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!

    @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.

    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...

  • 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.
