    @Hpoonis2010 And when God created the world, on the 7th day he looked down on what he made and said that it was good, yay. But wait, he needed a brave internet commenter to downvote and generally laud his opinion where it was never asked for. And yay, as Eve was created from Adam's rib, so God did take some sweat from Adam's buttcrack and craft that internet commenter, Hpoonis2010.

    That brave soul who defiantly downvotes and gets downvoted in return, Hpoonis2010. That voice in the autumn night breeze, caressing the neck of the internet with his self-righteous justifications. Leaving his subjects hungry for his opinion like the night sky hungers for morning's misty glow. That holy voice on the bandwidth of time itself.... Hpoonis2010.

    ~DAILY NEWS~

    GTA V has escaped from the top 10!

    Panic was awash among the UK top 10 this weekend when it was discovered that popular crime-sim GTA V had mounted a successful escape from the confines of the charts.

    The game was already 4 years into a 5 year sentence, when it was reported to be released on parole so that the upcoming 'Red Dead Redemption 2' could take it's place. A routine inspection was in motion at the charts, when warden ESRB found the cell of GTA V to be empty. A hole was discovered behind a Lara Croft poster, seemingly made from digging utensils that had been fashioned from forgotten Amiibos. ESRB later commented:

    "We urge the public not to be worried. We are deploying a strong sale on a game-hunt, who are committed to returning GTA V for the Christmas season."

    GTA's former cell-mate, FIFA (who talks like Morgan Freeman), said the following:

    "I have to remind myself that some games aren't meant to be caged. Their HDR is just too bright. And when they run away, the part of you that knows it was a sin to lock them up does rejoice. Still, the charts you live in are that much more drab and empty that they're gone. I guess I just miss my friend."

  • Jelly Deals: PlayStation VR bundle for £249.99 includes Skyrim VR or GT Sport

  • SuperSoupy 17/11/2017

    @kangarootoo To my (admittedly meagre) understanding HDR brings out colours and contrasts more sharply than before. So I figured in VR: by looking at distanced objects that are currently rather pixelly, would HDR not make the pixels more prominent rather than blur them, which in VR would make the resolution issue more noticable?

    That said, all of this is redundant if the HDR only applies to the pass-thru box and not the headset itself. But as a concept, I would have thought HDR-less VR would be a preferable experience?

  • SuperSoupy 17/11/2017

    @the_ewan Given the resolution of psvr the hdr isn't going to make a huge amount of difference. If anything it'll make those objects in the distance even more pixelly (which in vr isnt really a good thing).

    I'd say this here's a better deal by a long shot. The hdr with questionable alterations certainly isn't worth spending an extra £100 for.

  • EA is buying Titanfall developer Respawn Entertainment

  • SuperSoupy 10/11/2017

    @bad09 True it was already in development. That doesn't mean EA won't "pivot" it's direction now.

    Anyway, Zampella don't care. I'm willing to bet he'll sell his stocks the moment T3 puts the company into high value, and be long gone with another startup when Respawn eventually closes.

    Either that, or he'll stay and Respawn will remain, but be a studio that waters down it's design ambitions to annually put out the same game each year (like Battlefield/front).

    @phatpantz Publishers don't put down half a billion on a developer because their game isn't selling...

    Titanfall 2 must have done alright to warrant the buyout, or well enough considering its release window. That said, T3 must bring in the bucks for EA, so I can't see them releasing Respawn's follow up in the same window again next to COD or Battlefield.

  • SuperSoupy 10/11/2017

    Well, at least they can make another Titanfall now which is nice.

    And like Titanfall 2, any DLC will be purely cosmetic based with no hint of loot crates or purchasable currency.

    Right?

  • Sonic Forces review

  • SuperSoupy 09/11/2017

    As with Sonic's 2.5D outings at large, however, the physics seem off, with jump height and your precise mobility in the air a little hard to gauge
    Yep. 3D Sonics always fall flat when they try to ape the 2D ones. They never have got the physics to match properly. It's meant to be nostalgic but the comparison really puts the game in it's place.

    Sucks so much that this will get more promotional material than Mania.

    @icematt12 It is an awesome game! It was just unfortunately nestled between COD and Battlefield that its sales took a hit.

    So take a note Respawn: if you want to be successful, don't make a great GOTY-level masterpiece, just pull a COD and set your next game in a world war.

  • Should you buy an Xbox One X?

  • SuperSoupy 07/11/2017

    I'll stick with my trusty (and loud) PS4 for multiplayer games, for the likes of Destiny 2 and Call of Duty, but the Xbox One X is all of a sudden my killer single-player games machine.
    This is more of a personal thing rather than a guide that can be applied to many people. On the contrary, old bean, I personally find PS4 a better machine for single player games since you get Ass Creed and Wolfenstein etc as well as the Sony exclusive campaigns like Uncharted and upcoming ones like Spiderman and God Of War. Xbox on the other hand is a tantalising playground for multiplayer shenanigans in COD and Overwatch, and MS exclusive multiplayers like Halo, Gears of War and Forza.

    @minky-kong A perfect metaphor for a lot of games these days.

    Game: "We are so self-aware we know how to do 'fun'. Look, we have an option to do the 'fun'. Press 'x' to 'fun'."

    In my experience, the most fun I have from games comes from the spontaneous nature of random moments, not being told in a structured way what is fun and badass and cool etc.

  • LA Noire's Switch download version doesn't fit on a Switch

  • SuperSoupy 02/11/2017

    @abeeken Yeah perhaps so. This game is from last gen on an older engine. I'd guess it likely doesn't follow the same guidelines as current 3rd-party games, let alone Nintendo's in-house policy, when it comes to Switch development.

    Nintendo can probably go in at compress every little asset at a detailed level to get it onto Switch at a good size. It's the only device they need it to work for. They never had to consider putting it on XB1, PS4, 360 and PS3 like LA Noire has. Unless this port is a remaster I reckon Rockstar (or whoever did the port) only had the option of transferring it all across warts and all.

  • SuperSoupy 02/11/2017

    @Mono_X If what others here have said is true (that Nintendo did manufacture their storage on a separate board for later implemenation of higher gb cards) then trade-off or not, they still could have put more storage onto the current version of Switch. It would have cost more, but this thing is selling like crazy anyways.

    Granted it's not a ps4 and 500gb is a huge stretch, but 64-128gb would have been much better given the storage that some games like LA Noire here can take up.

  • SuperSoupy 02/11/2017

    @Shakey_Jake33 It certainly seems like they can introduce a system with more storage in the next year or two. But if these boards are in place in current versions of the device, then they still could have put more storage in the base version of Switch. Even if it were 64gb, that at least would have given players some wiggle room after installing Zelda. Reply +2

    @abeeken Good point! Reply +1
  • SuperSoupy 02/11/2017

    In a nutshell, the larger the cartridge, the more expensive each copy of the game is to produce for the developer and publisher.
    I'm guessing this thought process extends to the Switch itself also. It's cheaper for Nintendo to make a 32gb console than a 500gb one (which in today's age any self-respecting console should be at least that size). If Nintendo predicted Wii U-esque sales I'd understand their intent to limit storage for productions costs.

    But the thing is selling like hot cakes!! Nintendo can barely keep up with the demand! They could have easily thrown a few more gig at the Switch and it would still sell out.

    It sucks if so many 3rd party games miss out on Switch sales due to poor prediction planning. (Especially if they give people 25gb to play with after the OS install, and their very own Zelda taking up a chunk of that if downloaded. Customers are left with hardly anything.)

  • David Cage on Detroit and its depiction of domestic violence

  • SuperSoupy 02/11/2017

    Eurogamer sensation-baiting aside though, something I noticed about this game.


    No way a character that disgusting-looking has a daughter that clean and innocent-looking. they look like characters from 2 completely different households.

    She should be innocent, but she should at least have dirtier clothes, messier hair and maybe even red eyes from crying or lack of sleep.

    An aesthetic change on the little girl would actually make this more uncomfortable to play, which is the intention of this whole scenario.

    @---___--- To be honest, this is a guy who's faced many a controversy-baiting interview and knows when an interviewer is trying to push those buttons. He knows when they're legitimately looking into the making of a game and when they're looking to latch onto the controversy hype-train.

    He can choose to throw them a bone for that and feed into the hype, genuinely answer, or barely show them interest. He's also rich af, so more a reason to play it how the heck he wants. Only thing he needs to be wary of is what Sony allows him to say.

    Given all of that (and the sensation-bait from EG's side) he handled this interview quite well.

  • In Call of Duty: WW2, loot boxes drop from the sky onto Normandy beach and open in front of other players

  • SuperSoupy 01/11/2017

    @mega-gazz Not buying COD won't hurt Activision. They'll simply do what AAA publishers do and blame the dev team that made the game (to the publisher's own specifications!). If this would happen to fail, Sledgehammer will take the hit with job losses and Activision-Blizzard will continue as usual.

    It's not COD's fault that it has lootboxes, they show up in all the publisher's games these days. If you want to give the publisher the finger, don't buy any Activision-Blizzard games in general.
    Reply +5
  • SuperSoupy 01/11/2017

    So their approach here is that people will see others buying stuff and it will make them jealous and want to buy stuff themselves? Well, it's less subtle than matching players against others with purchasable cosmetics. At least they're being more honest in their intentions.

    Still, this reminds me of that bit in Saving Private Ryan. The Normandy Beach bit when Tom Sizemore's collecting jars of dirt before calling for a crate of magical cards from the sky. Much authentic.

    EDIT: and another thing! Surely annual COD players know that this game's popularity only has a lifespan of 365 days, until the next one comes out. Why invest so much in loot boxes here when they'll be essentially redundant in a year?

    @joeblobers Marketing is expensive in any medium. To be honest there's nothing wrong with a publisher spending £100 mil on advertising if it means selling a great product (with the amount of money gone into this already, I hope CIG does the same! A lot of people need to know about this game!).

    Granted, crowdfunding allows them to develop this on their own terms and not to a strict time-frame that they would normally have to under a publisher. So that in mind, PG quests about farming items will get boring quickly so I hope they devote enough of their time to the design that ties all of this together.

    So much talent has gone into this incredible-looking game. The design structure must not be a secondary thought process after the concept.

  • SuperSoupy 30/10/2017

    @Ivainir True, and that's another thing actually, for a real emotionally investing adventure they going to have to write it manually. But the sheer size of this thing means that they will have no other choice than to procedurally generate quests. The problem there is that this will itself get boring and doing the "go to X-location and recover X-object/mine X-no' of minerals/ shoot X-bad guys" 50 times.

    It's a very next-gen universe that they're building. The design needs to match its concept aspirations.
