    This isn't the first time I've seen this - a guy here in the office has one of those Nexus LG watches (which he has had for months) with the same display on it, i'm guessing it must be the same or similar app? Reply 0

    "Although we're under no obligation to do anything, instead we're going to do our best to make this right, and make you really glad you backed the project!"
    After all the arguments the whole internet has had over Kickstarter, and the output of projects, and what a backer is or is not entitled to, this is the crux of the issue right there.

    While i commend them for trying to 'do right' by their backers we're at the precipice of seeing more failed projects, due to over ambitious goals, and larger backlash towards the whole process as a result.

    Maybe now people will understand the difference between investing and paying for (or pre-ordering) something, because at the time, when Kickstarter was all exciting and new it seemed that some people didn't seem to understand the difference.

  • Mario Kart 8 getting Zelda and Animal Crossing DLC

  • Dex Early Access review

  • ZuluHero 21/08/2014

    Wow that look awesome - though with early access its impossible to know when the game will actually get released.

    I would like to play it, but I can't ignore that closing paragraph, sounds like waiting would be the best option - but for how long! Gah!

  • Tomb Raider, Vita's no-show and the mystery of 10m PS4 sales

  • ZuluHero 19/08/2014

    Great article and very informative.

    He doesn't really bullet dodge issues or the more tricky questions, and non of that cryptic BS either, its really nice to see candid answers.

    It was also nice to see some 2 way questioning going on, as if he understands and appreciates that its impossible to know everything and he doesn't try and pretend to (like some people do). Seems like a down-to-earth guy.

  • Star Citizen races past $50m mark after selling new space ships

  • ZuluHero 18/08/2014

    Jeez this is getting insane! While i don't want this project to fail, heads are really going to roll if this goes pear-shaped. The backlash is going to be the likes we've never seen.

    It's all well and good to be investing in "the dream", but I wonder what will happen when the dream is shattered and people have to face the cold harsh reality in the light of day...

    I'm hoping it doesn't happen, but given the development length and the spiraling costs, i'm starting to wonder if this will live up to what it's become.

  • Metal Gear Solid 5's cardboard box gets some peculiar new features

  • ZuluHero 13/08/2014

    @moroboshi Could you please explain why you think this objectifies women?

    The reason I ask is because I think you're getting a bit confused between seeing the image of a semi-clad girl and getting outraged, that instant GoTo, without really understanding why it makes you feel like that.

    And what about the women in question? They obviously thought that it was ok for their photo to be taken, like that, and stuck in the game. They weren't forced to do what they did. They had every right to decide not to take those jobs and not do it.

    Historically there have been strong progressive women that have fought hard for women's rights going through some pretty tough times and situations to get to where we are now, its about knowing the real issues and taking a stand, not just giving in because the 'money was good' or because it's 'what considered normal, so that makes it 'ok'.

    And there are far more pressing issues in the world where women are demeaned, abused, suffer from domestic violence, treated like slaves, are forced into prostitution and other horrible things, and yet you chose to pick up on this?

    Lets try not to focus on the defense, while feigning indignation, of people who already have the freewill to choose what is acceptable and lets try and get the equality for those that do not.

  • Firefall review

  • ZuluHero 11/08/2014

    I enjoyed it back in beta when playing with friends, but it got repetitive when playing on my own.

    This is partly due to the fact that Firefall is primarily a shooter, not a role-player. Unlike the swords, axes and staffs of a fantasy RPG, guns always tend to have a flattening effect on this sort of thing and, much like the similarly themed Defiance, Firefall struggles to offer genuine options beyond variations on the space marine. For all its premium-rate personalisation, everyone is playing as a human in battle armour and nobody really stands out.
    Oh dear! I wonder how Destiny will fare!*

    (*Still looking forward to it though :))

  • Watch a fish play Pokémon

  • ZuluHero 08/08/2014

    @DreadedWalrus

    If i were that fish I think i'd be quite annoyed if i happened to go to sleep in a section of tank that got me killed...

    But then I am putting human feelings in the body and mind of a fish.

    Maybe fish do not care about such things...

  • Activision notes industry-wide downturn in pre-orders

  • ZuluHero 06/08/2014

    @bad09

    Yeah, there must have been a flood in my area (pun intended) ;)

    I always order from Amazon now (and more cheaply too) and never had the issue since.

    I used to worry about not getting stuff on launch, but its never happened and i'm happy so it's win-win.

    It still counts as preordering mind, just to bring it back on topic ;)

    Halo Reach.

    Just to clarify - that isn't the location of my desert island, just the last game that I couldn't get hold of on launch day in a bricks and mortar shop due to not pre-ordering! ;)

  • ZuluHero 06/08/2014

    @GrimCreepr

    I did say that in the past game shops, Like GAME, used to order more copies based on demand.

    If you went into a shop and pre-ordered and they still didn't order you a copy then you must have a crap local ;)

    Anyway, based on the ardent negging of my comment, people obviously are blind (or missed the point), i wasn't defending preorder at all, merely highlighting why pre-ordering became such a big thing in late 20th/early 21st century.

    Nevermind! It's all "moot" now. Though I think I prefer to be mute ;)

  • Resident Evil 1 remastered for PS4, Xbox One, PC, PS3 and Xbox 360

  • ZuluHero 05/08/2014

    @Kami Yeah it was. And random spawns and AI positions too.

    It would be nice to factor that into mission critical items as well, but I guess that would be too hard to do.

    Still, i'm going to be all over this like i would over a Jill Sandwich(tm)

  • Can last-gen consoles handle Destiny?

  • ZuluHero 21/07/2014

    Probably already been said already, but I was really surprised by the PS3 version. If i were to end up with that version (I haven't decided whether to get a PS4 or hold out a bit longer and just get it on PS3), i wouldn't be disappointed at all.

    To elaborate on my decision, I had planned to get a ps4 for Destiny come September, but this BETA has really made me think twice. It really was that good! :)

    They've done a fantastic job fitting it all onto the PS3 AND maintaining all of the visual bells and whistles. Unless you happened to have both versions of the game running side by side like in that video - I doubt the missing stuff in the PS3 would be noticed at all...

  • The Last of Us Remastered lets you lock frame-rate at 30fps

  • ZuluHero 16/07/2014

    @ALL

    Dear All,

    Thanks for all the info - when the article was first posted there was very little information explaining the headline. Wesley has since updated the article, so the information is a lot clearer. It probably makes me look a bit dim. Though I was being slightly rhetoric.

    That said, I appreciate you all taking the time to all respond to me. Many times. Many, many times. It's nice to see that TLOU has a lot of well informed and passionate fans. I count myself among you! :)

    Many thanks,

    -Zuluhero.

    P.S. Its nice to see you all obviously read each others comments ;)

    I'm all for new story DLC. I'd be all over that like a fungal spore.

    I'm a little confused by the article though - why would you want to lock the game to 30 when it runs at 60?

    Considering the article is supposed to be about that there is very little information beyond the first line.

  • Battlefield turned Payday 2 designer starts new indie studio

  • ZuluHero 15/07/2014

    @ItsLatch

    I understand where you are coming from but its a subjective opinion based on a lot of presumptions.

    While certain people might get the limelight, that doesn't mean that they lack the skills to make games. A lot of the big names you reference cut their teeth as programmers, for example.

    Also, its very wrong to single out designers and have such a dim view on the work they do, without really appreciating (or understanding) how much designers do when creating a game and how wide the spectrum of design actually reaches. Its dismissive, ignorant and insulting to say the least.

    You're probably unaware of this, but there are actually 'programmers', in lead positions right now, that don't know how to code - that doesn't mean that they aren't good at what they do, leading a team with a core vision and ensuring good coding standards - but if these people, people who you deem to be superior in your eyes - started a new 'indie' company, they would be no more than a face of the company than the lead designers you hold in such poor esteem.

  • ZuluHero 14/07/2014

    @ItsLatch TBH, I would really question what you are being taught to form that opinion at Abertay University as it is either based on early 90s information or just wildly inaccurate.

    Game design and theory are vital for good game experiences, as is being able to hone and balance a game based on the sum of all its parts, not just compartmentalised systems in isolation, something which few programmers struggle with. That’s not a failing, programmers are often very logical people but sometimes maths is not enough. Sometimes even if the maths is correct, the feel of a game is still wrong. A good designer will spot these problems, understanding how each part of the game works with another and adjusts sympathetically with the game experience.

    A good designer will know how to script and code as well – in this day and age technical skills are a must. Which is why you often see designers going at it on their own. Because they can.

    It's also probably worth pointing out that there are a lot of game developers on this very site and it’s also a very small industry ;)

  • Mario Kart 8 sells approximately 2m in under a month

  • ZuluHero 27/06/2014

    Well deserved! I just got mine yesterday so a bit late to count towards this figure. Even got a wii u to play it, so definitely a system seller. Its really great - i only switched it on for a quick go last night, and it was 2am before I knew it. Plenty of people must be equally addicted to it as there were plenty of people online :)

    We've also been playing it everyday at the office, with some lunchtime multiplayer going on. Its attracted quite a crowd! Everyone's hooked! :)

    Bit confused really - do you need to have preordered AND have a PSN Plus account?

    Pretty sure that an EG article the other day said that PSN Plus members will get access?

    http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2014-06-25-playstation-plus-gets-towerfall-strider-and-dead-space-3-in-july

    In a post on the PlayStation blog Sony's Chris Howe pointed out that the Destiny beta arrives on PlayStation platforms on 17th July. You'll need a Plus subscription to play.

    @Physically_Insane There are still many of the same people at Rare, many of whom have worked on the games we know and love, but obviously a lot of new faces too. Hopefully things will go well for them and we start to see some of these new projects manifest themselves into something we know from the Rare we all know and love. Reply +10
  • Bloodborne is From Software's darkest game yet

  • ZuluHero 11/06/2014

    Whoa there, whoa there, whoa there, whoa. Miyazaki hasn't let us down yet, i'm sure he will take a very balanced approach to his game's design. Let's give him the benefit of the doubt before we start throwing our toys.

    I think it looks great, and shields or not i'm sure it will retain what makes his game experience so tight and give us another well realised world to explore.

    Whoa. There. ;)

    This sounds fantastic, really looking forward to it. It would be great to be able to convince other humans to work with with you (or at least tell them to shut up)

    It would also be cool if they worked in a 'The Thing' style trust system, especially if you had an android hidden in the game :)

  • Defiance MMO now free-to-play on PC

  • ZuluHero 04/06/2014

    Well it wasn't a subbed mmo anyway - like GW2, you bought the game (for the past few months you could pick it up for ~£5) and could play forever.

    I think this was probably always planned as a second phase to get people into the game after the initial rush.

  • Get 66% off FIFA World Cup at GAME if you're called Geoff Hurst

  • ZuluHero 03/06/2014

    So a quick google to change your name by deed pool is ~£9. And don't forget another £9 to change it back, so lets call it £18 for the whole thing.

    Then 66% off the £40 game makes the game £13.60, so £13.60+£18-2p(from all the name changing) = £31.58

    Easy!

    I feel I may be missing the point of this slightly...

    I too am interested in the ps3/360 comparison (and how it stands up the the ps4/one version), I know the focus is all shiny new 'next-gen', but lets not forget the current gen just yet. There are still plenty of us using them :)

    Really hope you all land on your feet!
