  • Xbox One screenshot feature won't be out until 2015

  • Nintendo 3DS sold 113k in Japan last week

  • vert1go 22/10/2014

    @Eoin Entirely different circumstances. We had different 3DS models newly out, and two established consoles in the PS3 and Wii U with very strong lineups, along with new editions of the 3DS and others, vs this year where PS4 is only out since Feb and has not sold spectacularly, and has been an extremely weak year for system selling titles. It's been the norm speaking from Jan/Feb for the PS4 to be doing those numbers, and the Wii U has mostly been around the 7-8k mark.

    We're in a gen switchover period, and the weak launch of PS4 titles and downswing in sales of the others due to changes in demand skews it completely. Last gen was an anomaly too. Prolonged, more widely appealing, bigger titles at the very end of the lifespan vs what we have now.

    Another week of the same level of sales as the past year has people freaking out because nobody understands that this is just the normal levels of sales now. Reply 0

  • The Stanley Parable has sold over a million copies

  • vert1go 21/10/2014

    Having not read the article, Stanley skipped down to the comments section below. "Surely," he thought to himself, "Surely there will be at least a dozen Stanley Parable narrator style remarks already waiting for me to read and be amused by?"
    When he got there however, Stanley was to say the least disappointed by what had been written so far. Instead he slumped away sadly, determined that perhaps if left for a while, a more suitable level of comments would appear.

    @muzzakus You know, this actually isn't a bad idea at all. How about a `current state of the next gen three` article, Eurogamer? Quality of titles, the OS of each, etc. Anyone else think it'd be a good read? Reply +7
  • vert1go 21/10/2014

    @spamdangled No. I mean decent games - as in games that rated strongly. More specifically I said ones that are actually out. You managed to name Forza Horizon 2.
    One year. One game.
    And good question on the PS4, because I honestly have no idea why people are buying that thing, or what they play when they do. Must all be enjoying that classic title Knack I assume.

  • Two discs "wasn't practical" for Halo: Master Chief Collection

  • vert1go 20/10/2014

    So having a huge percentage of the playerbase for an online multiplayer shootyfest downloading a 20Gb patch over hours and days clogging up the online network for said online multiplayer shootyfest is somehow more practical?
    Or was it just cheaper?
    Which of these things do we think is the more likely?

  • New Nintendo 3DS review

  • vert1go 20/10/2014

    I think the correct way to look at New 3DS - if it does stick with that branding here - is simply "new platform, with backwards compat".
    It isn't just a refresh. It's a full on update with an alleged four core processor. Plus, the 3DS does seem to be rather done with no more big titles bar Smash on the horizon. They've just kept the "3DS" branding alive. Why not? It's been very popular, and the system is fully compatible with the existing 3DS titles. Wii wasn't "just" a refresh of the Gamecube, it has different core hardware changes though it was compatible. Wii U isn't just a refresh of Wii, it has core hardware changes though it is compatible.

    The naming - again if it even maintains this over here - is a bit silly and doesn't do it any favours, but it is clearly meant to be a distinct platform that just happens to be able to run the 3DS library.

  • Hyrule Warriors horse DLC now available

  • vert1go 17/10/2014

    @KanePaws Here's how that works; Great amount of content, spread out over months, for low price? Buy. Too much or weak content that isn't good value? Don't buy.

    Owners of the game know how deep this content actually is, despite the shallowness of the article itself and `clickbaity` nature of the headline. There are already an unbelievable amount of hours to be had in Adventure mode alone. That has more or less doubled by itself - optionally - with a new map. And there are more to come. It's hard to complain in the circumstances. It's less than a third of the game price for all four packs, and those provide quite possibly MORE hours than the base game which is already stuffed with things to do. It's virtually a sequel if they expand with a few more missions in Legend mode.

    If they gave us Fierce Deity Link or Mask'd Skullkid I would dearly love it.
    I want to vaguely hope they throw the MK8 DLC's Link Master Cycle in there too. It would be appropriately nuts.

  • vert1go 16/10/2014

    There are also more 8-bit weapons and something like 16 costumes to get in Adventure mode.
    SO. MUCH. CONTENT.
    Reply -2
  • vert1go 16/10/2014

    @riz23 The one thing I disagree with to a larger extent would be how it is advertised so blatantly within this or MK8. At the same time they do have the need to do so - not everyone is on EG and its likes - but the balance of it is a little off right now.
    Now. From the game;

    Cia's tale is added to Legend mode (5 levels iirc). Something like a prequel.
    MQ map added to Adventure - it IS a full new version of the old map, which has another 20 gold Skulltulas btw.
    Epona. (Three era skins. *Possibly* three "weapon levels" I imagine. Hard to figure.)
    Guardian of Time costume for Lana or Cia.
    Plus the weapons etc for the three new characters which I believe are found in Adventure mode.

    Minor note; Dark Link (who shows as an entirely black model in the menu for some reason) has the glowing eyes in game... and they leave a slight red motion trail. Very Akira motorbike style...

  • vert1go 16/10/2014

    @Mr.Spo I believe the five extra Cia missions are part of the paid for DLC, but other than that spot on. People do not realise quite how vast this game is.
    ...And I just learned of the Rewards Map for completing illustrations.

  • vert1go 16/10/2014

    @A_FAN Pre launch DLC or that which adds very little value. This is not that as should be apparent. This is quite literally hours and hours of new content both from Cia's Scenario missions and the *massive* adventure maps. Even the season pass itself includes a small but cute extra `costume` of Dark Link.
    We're also getting some small additions for nothing. This is clearly not cut content packaged up to sell later. Nor is it going to form any split in the playerbase as DLC for eg Call of Duty or Destiny would.

    I still hate strongly that the costumes were dealt out on a per-retailer basis, but they are optional and will be available later. Again, not like pre-launch DLC typically is, like missing missions or gameplay in an AC title.

    It's DLC done right. Optional. Not cut. Not being missed out on. Priced extremely keenly for value in amount added. And as someone else noted, the sheer amount of content and elements this adds is hugely understated by the article. For anyone who is interested, Neogaf has a thread going on it and just what is included.

  • vert1go 16/10/2014

    @Kilboy Indeed, the game cannot be said to be lacking content, particularly with that free update. And as EG notes the season pass is great value making all four packs for this around half the eventual price. Reply +1

    Additional Adventure Map: Master Quest Adventure Map
    Adventure mode gets a new challenge-style map.
    Adds 'Master Quest' rules from not being able to heal, to not being able to use items.
    You can discover Cia, Valga, and Wizro's higher rank weapons as your reward.
    There's also other new ranks of weapons as well as 'Master Quest' style rewards to be found.
    It also reportedly includes the missions for Cia and a new Cia/Lana costume though I can't confirm all of this is the DLC pack. Epona also has a level 2 and 3 variant.

    Small but useful addition; you can now disable mid-battle cutscenes. Reply +6
  • vert1go 16/10/2014

    That Adventure Mode map is understated in value, too. If it's entirely new squares that is a hell of a lot of content.
    And free characters regardless is lovely. It's not like I even NEED more incentive to keep playing it!

    @null I don't believe I'm any kind of white knight at all. Nor do I think most of the anti GG people are.
    Because, you see, we see women as our equals and individuals, not as a labelled group. So we KNOW they don't need us to "rescue" them. Doesn't mean we aren't going to stand with them. All my life my best - often only - friends have been female. To suggest I wouldn't stand with them on this is ludicrous to me.

    The amount of interest in the 3DS XL was probably skewed due to it being available in a bundle with Monster Hunter 4G.
    Console and handheld sales skewing due to a game being out for them and/or available with them? No! I won't hear of such a thing!

  • Let's have more games that show rather than tell

  • vert1go 11/10/2014

    Ah tutorial intros. The horror.
    They used to be so simple. The first two or three `screens` of Super Mario Bros, designed to perfection to teach you all the basics. The playground garden opening of Mario 64. Goldeneye, which taught you nothing. AT ALL

    Then you have the most basic of all possible examples of the opposite sort in Ubisoft's ACIII intro.
    The thrill of constant interruption and cut scenes while leading the worlds blandest man around by the hand through a linear obstacle course. Followed by some more cut scenes. Some of which can be skipped, or let you move forward a couple of feet before another one kicks in that may not be skipped. Followed by another "hold forward and this button to win at this part" sequence. Followed by the THRILLING EXCITEMENT of SLOWLY, PAINFULLY SLOWLY sidling along a theatre aisle. Then a bit more climbing. And some running away.

    So boring that every bit is etched into memory forever.
