  • Assassin's Creed: Unity delayed by two weeks

  • smelly 31/08/2014

    @ApokNyneWheel : Er, um.. Er.. 2 weeks will have nothing at all to do with development time.

    For it to release for November, it would already need to be in with the platform holder for testing, before coming out for duplication/distribution/etc.

    This is all about marketing.

    @Abdu@EG : I dunno, is sunset overdrive actually any good?

    Every video i've seen of it has 7/10 plastered all over it.. (and that's after the reviewers have been given a load of cash)

    Not sure who thought putting a fps on a touch device was a good idea?

    Probably the same people who thought wii owners wanted CoD...

  • US Republican party creates its own video game

  • smelly 28/08/2014

    Only a complete moron would play this and go away thinking "hmm, the gop has some valid points there.. They havent just been wasting time in the senate all these years block everything Obama puts forwards".

    That said, at least it wasnt a tower defence Mexican border game...

  • Skate 3 gets reprinted following its recent YouTube popularity

  • smelly 28/08/2014

    I loved the skate games.

    If they become popular again due to hipsters.. And we get a sequel.. Then, "power to the hipsters!", I say...

  • Some celebrity games that don't feature Kim Kardashian

    Just watched a youtube playthrough of that Benny Hill game - the graphics are INCREDIBLE!

    One of these days, i'd love to talk to Don Priestley and ask him how he managed to get such large sprites in his games!

    EG - any chance of a retro interview with him? He must be getting on a bit now...

  • Face-Off: Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition

  • smelly 23/08/2014

    Just occured to me..

    There's not many xbone/ps4 games which arent either games from last year, or games you can play on last gen hardware?

    I was seriously considering getting a ps4, but just realised there's a massive shortage of games (which warrant a new console purchase) for both ps4/xbone.. They've been out almost a year now!

    (fairly high if previous games are anything to go by)

    Good to see the xbone/ps4 finally get a game worth playing for their machines which isnt a title that could run on last gen hardware..

    Oh... Wait...

    Wow, must be really hurtful for Jeff knowing it's still outselling the xbone monthly... He seems really desperate to point out it's success in every article..

  • Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare not coming to Wii U

  • smelly 22/08/2014

    Difference is, if 3rd parties stopped developing for the failing xbone, it'd be screwed... Im sure it has LOADS of GREAT 1st party games... :D

    But I still put it to you, that this is a good decision.. I *STILL* cant see the market for this type of game (Teenage boys) ever ever ever buying a nintendo product.. So this type of crap is ALWAYS going to no sell..

    Maybe make a challenging/innovative/imaginative game instead? That might sell on the wii-u (probably wouldnt on the xbone, teenage boys only like shooters)

    @WAusJackBauer : LOL.. If i wanted a story - i'd go watch a movie. I play games for fun. Yes, the main market for "mature" (lmao) games is teenage boys. Play ANY cod game with voice chat on, and you can confirm that in seconds.

    "The general view of CoD on Wii U astonishes me. Have any of you actually played it?"


    Dont need to, I've played 2 or 3 of them on the 360, and they were generally awful.

    Popular? Sure.. But then so are michael bay movies amongst teenage boys too.. Actually a michael bay movie probably has a better plot.

    @Mr-Writer : Nope, i just dont need to play a crappy 4 hours single player game followed by a crappy online experience of children yelling abuse.

    Not interested.. Had my fill of shooting things.

    The wii-u audience wouldnt have bought this game.. Because teenage boys wouldnt be seen dead buying a wii-u, and that's this games main market.

    You may think you're all grown up and mature - and perhaps you are. But if you are, you're not the main market of people buying this game.. sorry if that offends you.

    @A_FAN : Not at all, COD wouldnt have sold on the wii-u. Wii-u owners are not foul mouthed racist teenage boys

    Teenage boys wouldnt be seen DEAD owning a nintendo console..

    So their primary market isnt there.

    Wii-u is for older gamers who like challenging games, who arent bothered by "mature" content aimed at teenagers.. and the younger market..

    Watchdogs sold on hype alone, most of it pre-orders - until the review embargo was lifted. That, and coupled with there being bugger all games on the ps4/xbone at the time, it sold well-ish.

    Now we all have read the reviews, we know it's fairly "meh", and the hype has died off.

    If watchdogs didnt get released on xbone or ps4 earlier in the year, but it was released on those machines now. It'd bomb just as much as the wii-u version inevitably will, the hype is gone, the curtain has been dropped, the emperor has no clothes.

    Why would i pay $60 for the xbone version when i could get the 360 version for $25? If i hadnt bought it yet, there's a reason for that... I.e. i know it's "not great".

    This all has NOTHING to do with the wii-u or this belief that 3rd party games dont sell on nintendo.. Everything to do with this game wouldnt sell on any platform right now that the hype has been removed.

    @SpaceMonkey77 : Xbone is behind in monthly worldwide sales - so doesnt look like it'll catch up either..

    Wii-u had a disastrous first year.. But the xbone is tanking...

    There's a reason to buy a wii-u alongside the ps4 (or instead of), the games.

    The xbone, well once you have a ps4 - there's really no need to own a bone, unless you want to play the exact same games again at lower resolutions/framerates.

    @slammers : I think EXACTLY the opposite.. "Hardcore" gamers want challenging games with variety and imagination - Like nintendo products.

    "Casual" gamers want "me too" violent "mature" (lol) games like this...

    These types of games appeal to the mainstream casual audience who likes easily consumable easy to complete games with fuck all challenge...

    Which is why ubisoft is (rightly) moving to the xbone/ps4.. to target the mainstream massmarket casual gamers.

    The hardcore gamers who love games.. well, we'll be on the wii-u.

    (and if this doesnt produce negs amongst the people who think shooty games = hardcore.. i dont know what will)

  • smelly 20/08/2014

    Personally I bought a wii-u as i was bored of "mature" games with next to no colour, etc.

    Watch dogs wouldnt interest me on any platform. But that's why i got a wii-u to play games which AREN'T like this, and AREN'T like the games the rest of the industry pumps out.

    I want challenging hardcore games - like donkey kong tropical freeze
    I want colourful imaginative creative games - like mario 3d world
    I want 60fps fun action games - like mario kart


    Im not particularly bothered about another gta wannabe.. I've had my fill of games like that over the last 4 or 5 years of owning a 360.

    They'll do an half assed port, of a game which (lets face it) if you wanted it you probably already have it.

    And then they'll blame the sales on the machine...

    Even though it's outselling the xbone... I love game "journalists" sometimes, predictability is outstanding.

    @Kasjer : Lol! Yes.. Out of all of those, Flight Simulator is the only ACTUAL msoft made game, the other studios (such as rare for viva) were bought in and are 2nd party.

    And compared to (Im not even going to embarrass you by mentioning nintendo), sony's 1st party output.. it's shockingly "wanting".

    Considering msoft is a software company first and foremost (thus the "soft") their software output is a bit... well... Then again, so is their hardware output (i had ELEVEN 360 replacements!!!!!???!!)...

    Once a few good "next gen" games come out - i'll get a ps4 as my 2nd console... The xbox by YOUR OWN definitions is dead in the water (being outsold by the wii-u ... LOL!)

    Microsoft should go 3rd party only! Afterall, the xbox sold about as many units as the gamecube. And the xbone is being outsold by the wii-u.

    I cant wait to see all great those microsoft made titles on other platforms like... er... and .. er... um... and not to mention... er... Oh, i know one.. Halo...

  • PS4 leads US console sales for seventh month running

    @SparkyMarky81 : Me neither, but Im still fascinated by how/why stats are posted in articles like this.. Reply +1
  • smelly 15/08/2014

    Here's another worry..

    Where are the 3DS sales in all of this? My understanding is its outselling the ps4?

    Remember when EG (and other games sites) were telling us how "doomed" the 3DS was on a regular basis? Now they brush over it's sales figures... But yet, I've still yet to see an article on how "doomed" the vita is on this site...

    Curious...

    I dont care either way, i just find it fascinating - and wonder if it boils down to money or not?

    Even "grassyknoll"'s NPD data shows Vita sales, but no 3ds?

    Weird no?

    @arcam : LOL! EG always used to publish worldwide and/or european sales figures.

    It's only since this gen with the xbone now in 3rd place that it's suddenly started only posting US numbers.
    Reply +2
  • smelly 15/08/2014

    Does anyone have the official worldwide numbers?

    I'm finding it a little telling that EUROgamer consistently posts the US figures, and not the European/worldwide ones?

    If I were a conspiracy theorist, I'd be thinking that maybe microsoft have asked/paid them not to show us... But Im not, so I'm wondering why we only ever see US figures?

    My money is on you being able to pick brother or sister to play in the next "proper" zelda game. Thus the reason why in the teaser video the main character looked feminine.

    I'd welcome that, i always prefer to play as females in games - dunno why, i just do..

  • Why can't games do sex?

  • smelly 11/08/2014

    IMHO story doesnt make a game any more "fun", so, for me, story is pointless in a game... Thus rendering anything "real world" like sex, pointless.

    That said, i find it telling that people are okay with blowing limbs off of people okay.. but blowing a "limb" up "someone" is seen as being disgusting.

    People have their priorities so scarily wrong.

    1. Why would they port to xbone? The sales of that are tanking, wii u is outselling it weekly.

    2. I'll type this very slowly so you can understand.. Nintendo are publishing this.. You have more chance of playing the latest halo on ps4 than this.
