  • Here's your first look at the Crash Bandicoot remaster

  • VibratingDonkey 04/12/2016

    I liked the second one in particular, and this looks like it'll probably be a good remaster of them, but I don't know that I particularly want to play them again? If I did, I think they're on PSN. Remaking/modernizing old games does revitalize to some extent, but I find the concept primarily dull. I'd rather they spend these resources on a new thing that's not restricted by 90's game design and technology.

    Who's making this anyway? I guess various Activision-ish joints have been trying to make something new on numerous occasions, so if it'd be that again, maybe this is for the better still/the only way a new Crash game would exist at all. I don't know.

  • Huge Hitman update makes unlocks work offline

  • VibratingDonkey 28/11/2016

    Single player progression (i.e. the actual unlocking of unlocks, and the challenge system) are still unavailable offline. So this doesn't solve all the issues we have with the absolute stupid bullshit that is this single player game requiring a constant internet connection.

    Making online unlocks accessible to the offline profile is just a step in the right direction, which means the game is now no longer completely useless whenever the game is unable to contact authentication servers. Which is almost always due to problems on their end.

  • Burnout Paradise is gaming perfection

  • VibratingDonkey 27/11/2016

    Hey hey you you. I don't like this game as much as others did.
    The whole game just looks real dull, wish it looked closer to the boxart. Felt more like open world mechanics than arcade driving fun to me. It's like the Mirror's Edge Catalyst of Burnout. 2 and 3 were the peak of the series to me.

  • So, about that Assassin's Creed Ezio Collection glitch video

  • VibratingDonkey 23/11/2016

    It was an error to claim these bugs indicated the remaster was worse than the original. But if you came upon these bugs for the first time in the remaster, who wouldn't make that assumption? Easy mistake to make. Reply +5
  • I'm still searching for the SSX in Steep, but there's one thing it absolutely nails

  • VibratingDonkey 21/11/2016

    The concept of a Horizon Paradise for extreme winter sports is something I'm theoretically on board with. But what I played of the beta feels like it's lacking something. Like it hasn't found the right balance between realism and arcadey goof. It's not extreme enough in either direction.

    The real-time sports change is good, but it makes me wonder how much more good it would be if you could sports change mid-air.

    As someone who's just barely played snowboardish games before, I'd say it feels ok, but not exciting, or much of anything, until you start picking up some proper speed. That, bailing and air tricks is what I think works for this game. And the stupid running in the wingsuit. And failing to deploy it. And the open mountain. And the seamless multiplayer thing.

    The worst thing it's got going is the parasailing. It's just...anti-fun. It's slow and boaty, and hard to grasp how to do well at. I'm just awkwardly drifting around vaguely towards checkpoints that I'll hopefully hit instead of trees or rocks or whatnot. Feel like even if I would eventually learn how to suck less at it, it's still not going to be fun. I kind of don't ever want to do that again?

  • Let's raise a glass to Ubisoft's other open world game set in San Francisco

  • VibratingDonkey 18/11/2016

    I'm glad Ubisoft did it once, but wish Ubisoft would give Reflections the reigns of another larger budget project. Or more smaller ones. Using the creative talent responsible for this and Grow Up, in support roles for games thought up by others, seems like a waste. Reply +2
  • Sharing Watch Dogs 2 genitalia got someone banned from PSN

  • VibratingDonkey 17/11/2016

    This whole thing is dumb. Unless these were unintended genitals, this shouldn't be Ubisoft's problem, but Sony's and their lack of a content filter, and stupidly harsh punishment for people who quite sensibly assume that it's fine to share imagery from a game on the platform on the platform.

    Another thing I don't get is the implication that genitals are fine unless they cross some sort of line where they become too detailed? Apparently this makes Sony ok with the sharing of images of the dude's dong and the hoola hoop nudist?

    At least this guy eventually got the planned one month suspension lifted after this all blew up.

    Essentially making the narrative the gameplay requires the player to feel like they're actively taking part in it in some manner. That's what makes these kinds of games interesting. Because even if the writing is good, effectively watching cutscenes play out, is not very engaging from a gameplay perspective. So it's good to hear that there's time/story puzzling going on.

    Following Gone Home I have some amount of faith in that these people are capable of designing good narrative games, but I wonder how many pushups Steve Gaynor can do?

  • Mass Effect Andromeda $199 Collector's Edition includes remote control Mako

  • VibratingDonkey 07/11/2016

    If you want to buy an RC car/display piece and a steelbook for $200, this is the edition for you, I guess. I'm more interested in the edition that comes with the game and is $60.

    The Mako controlled fine as I recall it (might recall wrong.) But it had the dumbest design where you were asked to drive over the bumpiest terrain while shooting things, and the turret couldn't aim downwards.

    Mass Effect has had frequent issues related to resource gathering. But I dunno if that's ever particularly fun in games really. ME3 was fine in that regard. Probing planets isn't the most engaging thing ever, but the ME3 iteration of it was ok.

    Exploring around to find stuffs is a good concept in theory, but it needs to be more than the kind of traipsing around barren areas of ME1, or whatever the hell Dragon Age Origins was. So I hope they've figured that out. I'm tentatively happy about the return of the Mako though.

    The Shepard era being over with means I no longer feel beholden to maintain the DudeShep I made like a fecking decade ago. People kept going on so hard about FemShep, I felt a little bit sad.

    Dunno if Jennifer Hale's still on board or how everything fits into the SAG-AFTRA strike, but after a decade of dude I'm looking forward to FemRy.

    Also looking forward to the Red Dwarf jokes that surely must be present. If there was ever a time for Mass Effect to lean at least a little bit towards Guardians of the Galaxy, this would be it.

  • Sony PlayStation 4 Pro review

  • VibratingDonkey 07/11/2016

    With all of our content mirrored across onto the new PlayStation, we decided to begin our tests by looking at the presentation and performance of existing PS4 titles. Rather famously, Xbox One S features a GPU overclock compared to the standard model, resulting in a small bump to performance that while not essential, is clearly nice to have. When I spoke to Mark Cerny about improved base PS4 performance on Pro, he ruled it out completely pretty quickly and this is borne out by final hardware.

    The new Pro GPU shuts down half of its compute units and the rest are downclocked from 911MHz to the standard PS4's 800MHz. We used a Project Cars replay running on both systems to judge performance in like-for-like gaming conditions in a title that stresses both CPU and GPU, and saw totally identical results. Maintaining compatibility is Sony's key aim here, though we would have liked to have seen an option to unlock full Pro performance (or at least the additional clocks) on older PS4 games. There is some precedent here: PS2 introduced additional texture filtering for running PS1 titles via backward compatibility - it was an option, and it was signposted that using the feature was done at the user's risk.
    Yeah this is a somewhat significant bummer.

    Performance gains are automatic across the board with PC hardware upgrades. And with the Xbox One S. It not being possible for all games on the PS4 Pro to benefit from that bump, sucks. I honestly don't understand what Sony is worried about. Surely AMD drivers don't suck that hard? And as pointed out in the quote above, Sony could allow users to enable this boost mode by slapping a disclaimer on there saying stability is not guaranteed.

    Hope they'll change their minds about this with a firmware update.

    When I do get a PS4 it's 94% going to be a Pro, for the reasons mentioned above, but looking at games currently available and games coming up, that'll be somewhere in 2017. Since I've spoiled Until Dawn for myself, Uncharted 4 is pretty much the only PS4 exclusive out there that I'm properly into. Some Tearaway Unfolded and a little bit Driveclub.

    By the end of 2017 there will (certainly, probably and/or hopefully) be Horizon, Days Gone, Gravity Rush 2, God of War, Detroit, Dreams, The Last Guardian, Valkyria, Spider-Man, WiLD and Yakuza 6. And friends. Perhaps also a bundle including one of them.

    I really, really want Yakuza 6. That game looks like the best game ever. It's some kind of miracle that it gets to exist with a budget properly accommodating for its overindulgent brand of nonsense. Thanks Japan. Hope it'll make its way out of there ASAP.

  • Zoe Quinn's next game is a far cry from Depression Quest

  • VibratingDonkey 30/10/2016

    @dauglyhamstar
    Haven't seen a burn like that since I rolled over that sausage in Stephen's Sausage Roll.

    If it wasn't clear, I'm fine with suppressing disruptive Gamergate garbage. I would say unless you're on a government operated forum, but libel, threats and harassment isn't protected speech; is about half of Gamergate's speech.

    Wondered how these self-proclaimed free speech supporters would respond to the pro-free speech argument you quoted, within the context of my previous post. Would they stand by their supposed ideology, or would they betray it.

    The outcome isn't terribly surprising.
    Basically, my point is that it's easy to cut through the veil and see where Gamergate's priorities lie. Has been for years. For instance, "Gamergate is about ethics in games journalism!", Gamergate argued and argues, while Zoe Quinn wasn't and isn't a games journalist. Yet to this day Gamergate says and encourages things like:
    The only reason we know her name is because she slept around a lot.
    Miss Quinn's propensity to give out hand-jobs for coverage.
    a Crowd-funding campaign with more than whiff of fraud about it.
    This whole endeavor was kind of pointless though due to the aforementioned blatantness. And you're probably the only one who will read this, assuming you have notifications on. Butt oh well.

    That hat swivel is honestly a reason why I believe in this game. It's beautiful.

    I haven't read anything Tingle, just seen a couple of covers, but on a surface level I like the goofy sexy rebellion of it. It seems borderline too memey, but I'll give this game a shot why not. At the very least I'll appreciate that this thing is a thing that will exist. More things, good. Especially FMV things. There's just something about FMV.

    Those people are fine with women making games, as long as they're not perceived to have stepped out of line. By for instance indicating that the aforementioned is a shitty situation.

    Argue against the status quo, sexism, inequality etc. or be a woman working on a game perceived to contain such messages, and the angry nerds may start flocking out of the woodworks.

    Anyway, the message of this game is to always carry a case of beer with you. And that's a message anyone can get behind.

    Not sure about the current state of this game, but in general for early access games, it's kind of weird that people are ok with paying for buggy, possibly broken games with features and content missing, because they're told they are like that before paying for them.
    "This game's unfinished and busted."
    Sold!

    It's just strange that unfinishedness isn't thought of as an absolute problem. I'll find it annoying if a game crashes regardless of what stage of development it's in. That's not something I can switch off, and I don't understand how some people apparently can.

    I don't have a problem with it, kind of the opposite. Everyone knows what they're buying into, and early access has led to the existence and further development of a lot of games. I just find it strange. Strange but good.

    I've been on board with this game's vision ever since that dev diary, am glad to see it's in public beta and moving towards completion, and I'll be buying it when the journey's done. Hopefully by summer.

  • Infamous video game movie director Uwe Boll retires from filmmaking

  • VibratingDonkey 27/10/2016

    I won't pretend to know the business realities of lower budget movies as streaming is becoming more popular, but there's probably other factors that led Boll to here.

    It sounds like he realizes that though from how he refers to the streak of garbage video game movies he shoveled out. He made money from them, but they completely assed up his reputation. Something he's evidently been royally frustrated by over the years. I don't think it's unfair that those are what most people know him by, but it's also fair to say that he is capable of doing, and has done, better than that. He suffers a wee bit of hubris though, I think. He's not always that bad, but he's never that good.

  • Rick and Morty co-creator Dan Harmon is making a show about esports

  • VibratingDonkey 19/10/2016

    Dan Harmon is an executive producer. One of seven. Don't know how involved he is exactly, but I expect not particularly, wouldn't assume more than giving his production company the greenlight to fund this or some such.

    The gaming angle always makes me groan, but maybe the people involved have what it takes to make something funny still. I know that Dan and Arin have good comedic instincts and chemistry, less sure about their acting, but that also may not actually matter too much as I doubt this will be taking itself particularly seriously.

    Tubers should never be in anything aspiring to be taken seriously. They generally aren't actors, except for that one role they play.
    Another planned Youtube Red show, Impulse, is a sci-fi thriller written and produced by Jeff Lieber, co-creator of Lost, that will "feature top YouTubers", which is just an absolutely repelling notion.

  • Watch Dogs 2 delayed two weeks on PC

  • VibratingDonkey 18/10/2016

    One could suspect this is a reaction to the response Mafia 3 received, but it's just Ubisoft honoring the tradition of pretending their games will be released on PC and console simultaneously.

    As always, don't pre-order.

    Unless the game's 50% off on Origin like this was some weeks ago.
    New games have ridiculous prices on Origin in my region, so it was more like 30% off. Still, those savings are worth the risk I reckon.

    When you finish all of Burke's missions he reveals that he was actually selling the cars in the US to raise enough money to get his daughter out of the city, and the IRA thing was a cover story so she didn't find out.

  • Mafia 3 review

  • VibratingDonkey 12/10/2016

    Despite of its flaws, I feel like it is and will continue to be worthwhile as I quite appreciate the setting, atmosphere, music, characters, writing and the sociopolitical topics it touches on. Some six hours in, I still find the mechanics engaging enough to tolerate the repetition. The animations are good, bullets lethal, and Lincoln is pretty spry for a dead guy. It does the thing where you're presented with a hostile area and you do what comes natural with whatever options are provided, which is something I find inherently engaging.

    There's been one serious bug, where a tutorial prompt would fuck up the XB1 controls so it failed to register certain inputs. Had to use mouse and keyboard to get past the section where you're running away from the cops.

    Oh and this fuckery.


    Was driving along until I noticed, where the hell are the poles that are supposed to hold these magically suspended wires? Where the hell is anything? Two minutes later, oh there it is.

    But so far I've been most bothered by the empty chore of collecting fuses. A needlessly drawn out process which, unlike other collectibles, the game basically tells you to continually go through.

    Ubisoft is trying its darndest to keep this in the news. Fair enough.

    I'm sad that I can't be happy about this announcement.
    It's announced out of some behind the doors business necessity, not because it's ready to be announced or Ancel and friends necessarily want it to be.

    Thing's in pre-production and won't be out for another X years, and that's if Vivendi doesn't take over and cancel it. And if it avoids stumbling down some development hell hole again.

    I was looking forward to some certainty. That's what's been lacking, not the knowledge that the game's being worked on. That feels like it's been the case on and off, to some extent, for the past eight years. It feels like nothing has changed.

    This is the worst reveal of a game.

    What this means is another X years of uncertain waiting, as some manner of development hell may continue as Ancel splits his time between this and Wild, and Ubisoft tries to fend off Vivendi by waving BG&E2 around as an example of the creative heart Ubi claims is on the line, which may very well be the case as there's a chance Vivendi would pull the plug on this project if they could, which they might at some point.

    The worst.

    I think whether these qualify as games or not should be a pointless discussion as it doesn't change what they are. It's solely about how they're perceived. Whether someone wants to perceive them as games or not wouldn't matter if it wasn't for some wanting to use the declassification of them as games, as a way to dismiss them, make them less legitimate, gatekeep. It's cool to not like these for whatever reason, but that is not. This egocentric, insular attitude that's hostile towards different experiences or ones not targeted towards them, is one in favor of stagnating games and stifling the creative freedom of developers.

    So that's basically why I'd like to refer to them as games.

    The possible reasons for appreciating a game, why you find a game engaging, should encompass as much as possible (up to some manner of moral boundary.)

  • Report: Oculus Rift creator Palmer Luckey secretly funded pro-Trump meme website

    Oh. Missed this bit.

    Along with Luckey, Nimble America was founded by two moderators of Reddit’s r/The_Donald, which helped popularize Trump-themed white supremacist and anti-Semitic memes along with 4Chan and 8Chan. A questionnaire to become a moderator at r/The_Donald posted in March had applicants answer the questions “Is there a difference between white nationalism and white supremacy?” and “Was 9/11 an inside job?”

    Trump may be repugnant but what also is are factions of the games industry moralizing over this.

    He funded some "memes" for heavens sake but even a tangible link to trump is enough for some media outlets like EG to go into a full on shame/smear campaign mode.

    Disappointing but not surprising, are the political views of everyone in the games industry now newsworthy, can we only buy products from pre-approved companies, thats seems were it's headed.
    I do not agree with your moralizing over this that moralizing over this is repugnant. If you don't think it matters, whoopdedoo. But insinuating that those who have a more negative reaction, should not, is wrong.

    Luckey was covertly explicitly supporting Trump. He said he's been supporting Trump for years. It's not just some dank prank about mean memes.

    An important figure in the games industry supporting a repugnant person, and the reactions to this by people in the games industry, is relevant to the games industry.

    He is right.

    Clinton is just another Goldman Sachs lackey who will keep the poor crushed and poor while the 1% get bigger, bigger and bigger.

    Now wether Trump is the right man to end that is another question. But Obama aside the last 30 years of American politics has and will be dominated by two empires. The Bushes and the Clintons.
    Don't think that's much of a question.
    He has used the "I'm a successful businessman" spiel to drive support. So it would seem bizarre if people support him in opposition of Clinton being supported by successful businessmen. Trump literally is the corporate elite. Don't know what makes people believe he would be any better.

    Modders expand and improve games for us for free. Hone their skills at game development, try ideas. Which sometimes eventually turn into things like Dota 2, League of Legends, CSGO, TF2. Or a job.

    But apparently if modders suggest they value their work and would like to be credited for it, they're idiotic children who no one gives a shit about.

    I don't get it. I don't get why gamers are so angry and hostile.
    Sometimes I wonder how games get to exist at all.

    Also I value when I'm able to easily change values in a file somewhere. Back in forever ago, you just opened a .dat or .ini in notepad. Nowadays they're all in these big weird compressed files which modders may eventually find a way to unpack and release tools for. I'm grateful they made me able to modify vehicle behavior in GTA V. Plowing through highways with a 500 ton car going like 200mph is fun. Also trainers. Modding is actually why I bought the PC version at all. Although the Nice Fly mod did literally burn up my 780. But I RMA'd it and got a 970 back, sometimes life's ok.

    I'll say that if a mod is as simple as what I've been doing, it doesn't matter if someone else copies it into their thing. But this is surely a bit more arduous. If it wasn't I would've done it myself. Changing a value is easy, but changing, testing and finding out what combination of lots of values work best for what you want to do, can take time. At some point it transforms from noodling around to putting in actual work.

    Regardless of who technically, legally owns their work, it's still their work.

    Anyway, it's more about attribution than ownership. Taking the work of others without asking permission or giving credit is shitty and disrespectful. Getting recognized for your effort matters. Provides motivation for modders to keep doing what they do.

    The shit thrown Eurogamer's direction over a scambag being a guest at EGX is unfair as Eurogamer doesn't have anything to do with management of EGX.

    But it's their name up there. They're the ones getting shit. So one would hope they would try to have something to do with the management of the event bearing their name. Because it certainly looks duff to invite this Cassell. C butt I did there?
