  • "We have to do better when we launch NX"

  • andrewsqual 26/08/2016

    @lukej So true. You can stick the PS Vita in there as proof of your statement. I guarantee the Vita would have sold 3 times as much (which still sadly isn't a lot) if it were called the PSP 2.

    This Nintendo XN, or whatever, is history repeating itself already. The Wii U didn't have final details revealed until Sep 2012, only 2 months before its release. As each month approaches Jan 2017, we are getting closer to this fail of a parameter repeating itself too.

  • Battlefield 1's Ł40 Premium Pass features French army, Russian Empire

  • andrewsqual 24/08/2016

    Does the campaign feature a prologue level where you get to experience the actual events of when a bloke called Archie Duke shot an ostrich 'cause he was hungry?

    @rep- Did you ever stop to think that some people aren't bothering with the game BECAUSE of today's "expansion passes" like this? You obviously find this standard practice now but why do some other studios and publishers have no problems releasing additional content for a game after day 1 for absolutely free? And why should EA and Dice get a free pass (sorry, a paid for premium pass :) ) when they are the most obnoxious at doing it?

  • PlayStation Now is coming to PC tomorrow in the UK

  • andrewsqual 24/08/2016

    Great for PC people who are starving to play some amazing PlayStation games. Fired up the 15 year old Jak and Daxter in the terrible PCSX2 ver 1.40 emulator recently and its still amazing that it runs like crap and graphical problems are still present like missing eyeballs on the characters. You won't be emulating Uncharted Drake's Fortune anytime soon I guarantee.

    Still don't see the point in this service that includes some of the biggest games I've bought and recently in the last 7 years too. I have a PS3 still set up right beside my PS4 anyway. Waiting for them to release the entire PS1 and PS2 library on Now, as promised at the PS4 reveal, before I bite.

  • The PS4 Slim is real - confirmed

  • andrewsqual 22/08/2016

    @rep- I wish sticking the name Sony on an Apple TV device would make it worth even 50p. Sadly it does not. :(

    Richard should say "hey what's that over there?" and then run out the door with the slim console. :) Well done on the actual journalism too.

    Pity it isn't down to the size of DVD case like the PS2. That would have been class. Don't like the EG comparison with an Apple TV though. Does that mean its a useless brick that would do absolutely nothing I would want from a device connected to a TV? Reply 0
  • EA's Peter Moore: I'm not sure video game press conferences have a future

  • andrewsqual 18/08/2016

    No "EA" Press conferences don't have a future and I'm not referring to that mess the other night. Sony, Ubisoft, Microsoft, even Bethesda all had pretty good showings at E3 this year.
    EA were the only ones with practically nothing but studio offices to show yet again for some of their biggest upcoming games that aren't recycled sports crap.

  • It looks like Assassin's Creed 2, Brotherhood, Revelations are headed to PS4, Xbox One

  • andrewsqual 18/08/2016

    Lol was waiting for this to be announced. Knew they couldn't take a full year out from a main AC release.
    Hmm, would have liked the first one too. its been so long. It would make sense to include it too since there are big ties to Altair in Revelations.

  • Yes, there will be Project Scorpio VR-exclusives

  • andrewsqual 18/08/2016

    @EDDS Actually, no we didn't. We expect things like Rise of the Tomb Raider style "exclusives" for VR on Scorpio.
    But actual totally exclusive games on Scorpio or Xbone? No, we all know that's a thing of the past since E3 2016.

    So Aaron Greenberg just confirmed, in a year and half from now, they will still be wasting money on "exclusives" in Xbox camp. Why would a VR game be exclusive on a console and cut out 85% of the rest of its potential market on PS4 and PC?

  • Tekken 7's Harada on the thorny subject of sexy swimsuits and Western sensibilities

  • andrewsqual 17/08/2016

    @TekMerc I hope you mean "best" as in the hilarity of it.

    Tekken isn't a series known for women with "huge tits". I would even put the Soul series in that category more for Ivy and Taki alone. The largest buxoms I can think of would be Nina and Anna (being Irish of course this is the case :) ), Asuka who hardly wears much revealing outfits to show off that fact and then maybe Christie Montiero. And even then these characters aren't ridiculously ginormous. Every other female is either very average or slightly above or below. Why does nobody ever complain about Lili's HUUUUUUGE sexy.......... long hair?

    Some of the males in the game have a completely topless outfit or alternate topless outfit since the first game. So why make a big statement like that just focusing on the females only in Tekken???

    I think what Harada means is "we are not trying to over sexualise the female characters any more than the males in the game." And as AnsemsApprentice said above me "Sexy is harmless" so what is the problem with that anyway?

    Onto more pressing matters. Please let there be more music by Sanodg in the final game. In the soundtrack released for T7 so far there is only one track by him :(



    Although the 2 versions of a tune for the stage and then the Final Round seems like a new great edition.



    @jihon83 And there is your very problem. You missed it or can't remember how that went down. Harada wasn't phased by it whatsoever. He was taking the mickey when he said to US audiences that hated on her "I'll make muscular & skinhead character for you, she will be an Asian/EU exclusive character." Not sure what this "breakdown" is that you speak of. If that is your idea of a "breakdown" in communications then Warner should just shutdown business right now with all that atrocious commotion with PC ports and their games.

  • New Resident Evil 7 trailer poses more questions than it answers

  • andrewsqual 17/08/2016

    @Boycie86 You are forgetting one fundamental thing with that statement. Shinji Mikami, the creator of the Resident Evil series, was still with Capcom and was the director of RE4 after producing RE2 and 3. This is not the same thing, in any way at all.

    They could have kept it closer to the original games by having it set in the past around the Spencer Estate area and everything that happened the Trevor family. What a missed opportunity.

  • Final Fantasy 15 delayed by two months

    @Turniplord And yet you talk as if this game will be released perfect AND actually believe him? It most certainly will not be and of course there will just be another "day 1" patch anyway.
    This is the same team that released 2 major unoptimised playable demos for this very game.

    Your gullibility is adorable though, bringing up other studios too even if it is a small group of 5 or 6 people compared to the 300+ people making this game that is going to be record breaking disappointing.

    @OneManAndHisDroid @makeamazing
    Just use that ignore button on his profile page.
    Its been working wonders for me. Literally cuts out 100+ comments especially on Uncharted 4 articles.
    Never seen somebody with so much trolling for specific games but NEEDS you to know desperately and repetitively how he feels about them and how you should too.

    Its a shame that although I've been ignoring him this past 3 or 4 months I still have to read indirectly from others that he still trolls specific articles and games. :(

    Well done to Sean Murray and the team. The No Man's Sky can only get better from here going forward with tweaks and new features.

  • Sega announces two new Sonic games

  • andrewsqual 23/07/2016

    Expect all the usual symptoms. But THIS new 3D one will be great.............. right?



    and



    And no, Generations wasn't good. Your nostalgic vision is getting in the way. As soon as "modern" Sonic's first level shows up (the second one that is) and the camera goes behind him and you are re-introduced to those typical horrendous controls, that's it, DONE.
    And classic Sonic (1991 to 1994 Sonic) looks too small for his levels, he even looks small when compared to the launch springs, like the levels were designed for the other Sonic first.
    And why is the jump sound effect the Master System sound effect, used in other awful Nintendo console Sonic games? Where is the Mega Drive jump sound that the classic Sonic was based off of?

    This new 2D one looks promising though. Please, please, please have the classic Sonic physics too. I don't want Sonic to come to a complete stop instantly when I let go of the d-pad.

    @SHPanda Exactly. They hype it up in the trailer above like "look at this contrasting world Sonic is in" and yet they did the exact same thing in all the promos for Sonic Adventure, almost 20 years ago.

    Edit: Gotta love this place where some people are displeased with your comment and just don't even challenge it. I mean if you disagree, why don't you try and give even one reason why you disagree? From yours truly, a disgruntled old school Sonic fan who doesn't regret for one second abandoning Sega 20 years ago.

  • andrewsqual 20/07/2016

    @muro If it has been done, then the bar has just been lowered for mankind yet again.

    Really? Gogglebox? You are aware that the people on the show, like every reality show, are perfectly aware they are being recorded so none of their reactions are realistic and thus entertaining in the slightest. But then, the success of it, like any reality show, is the fact that the donkey masses watching it never figure that part out.

    But adding another layer of people watching something and reacting to it, to Gogglebox (and THAT isn't the ironic part)? The only irony here is that you are adding another layer of fakeness and rehearsed reactions to an already horribly not entertaining show.

    Hidden camera shows are the only kind "reaction" style show where you get to see ACTUAL genuine responses from human beings.

  • Xbox One S 2TB launch date 2nd August

  • andrewsqual 18/07/2016

    And yet, when it comes to big release games, the Xbone S can still barely play anything natively at full 1080p.
    The irony is at critical levels, let alone Microsoft also talking up Blu-ray movies and Bluetooth in controllers as massive game changers. Is this 2006? So these are amazing things now right? Oh and called it on ANOTHER version of the controller.

    Edit @TheStoneRoses below me
    What are you talking about? Literally every PS4 exclusive outputs at full 1080p WHILE looking pretty stunning AND run very optimised too (maybe not Bloodborne but that game engine is never optimised on anything). That was clearly the point I was making.

  • Watch: Six things we want from Red Dead Redemption 2

  • andrewsqual 06/07/2016

    Here is what I want. Stop calling the damn thing Red Dead Redemption 2. Where has this Red Dead Redemption 2 nonsense come from anyway???
    And the funny thing is, its rumored to be set before the SECOND game (yes, second game in case you didn't know) in the series, Red Dead Redemption, which would make sense as the Wild West was already dying out in this game. So the Redemption 2 thing makes even less sense.

    More than likely it will be something around the lines of the other 2 games. Revolver, Redemption and R_______. At this stage Red Dead Revengeance actually makes more sense than the consensus name the gaming media has given it.

  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Game of the Year edition spotted

  • andrewsqual 06/07/2016

    @Outpostmodern Had to abandon the horse. Never use it. Get taken out of the game every time it comes to complete halt when I step on a pebble, let alone ledges 1 foot high. The horses tail is still missing in my game since literally 10 minutes in (maybe that's why I can't stand to look at it?).
    The navigation and animations for the horse are not even up to par either. And all starting with version 1.20 for me. Can't imagine what it was like last year.

    Beautiful game though but I do think its weird the way the wind just never stops blowing strong in this world. It gets kinda samey when the trees everywhere are just constantly thrashing about.

    The best thing about this GOTY is easily the fact that at least the 17gbs of fixes will be included on disc now. Its definitely the most strange, unanimous, without question, GOTY for me since Red Dead Redemption though.

    "This use of Nintendo's intellectual property may confuse Kickstarter backers into thinking this project is sponsored or licensed by Nintendo, when in fact it is not."

    Going with how backward and moronic Nintendo is related to the trends nowadays, I think it's worse for the Kickstarter owners to be mistook for the official Nintendo company. I'd be quite insulted.

    ITS A KICKSTARTER RELATED TO SOMETHING NINTENDO, the company that can't even embrace YouTube. Everyone and their granny knows it isn't Nintendo endorsing it.
