@Ghibli problem is they are locking it behind a paywall by not offering an alternative. Something that was available on every other console home/portable. Even the 3DS has a backup funcion on the SD card.
With that in mind, a comment storm is very much justified.

Hellblade wins big at the Baftas

@BobbyDeNiro In contrast with... ? What? Hellblade?! A corridor hack'n'slash?!

Personally I enjoyed Breath of the Wild more than Horizon ZD, and is by far the GOTY of 2017 in my view, however Horizon is my second GOTY for 2017.


Can't get all the praise for Hellblade... as, gameplay wise, it's your usual Ninja Theory formula: gud story/cutscenes/mo-cap, but plays like crap.

Seriously, they should just start making CG movies already and stop pretending to be game developers.



And let the neggers neg! Neg this all the way to the abyss, like every other opinion that might endanger your echo-chamber!

@jabberwocky A platform exclusive game, with a boring ass world, no story, no meaningful objective to drive your interest, repetitive gameplay, with emphasis on grinding for cosmetic items and no point in doing any of it. But it's got coop, so you can enjoy the boredom with your pals.

You're right No Mans Sky sounds much more interesting!

There are 2 games, that I've noticed so far, that are marked as 50% off in their notification, but on the eShop they're just 33% off.

- Brawlout

Nintendo's eShop Christmas sale is surprisingly decent

Boku

5 months ago

One or two good ones, other than that SKIP!

Compared to the other e-stores like PSN, Steam or XBL, the so called offers on Nintendo eShop are pretty shitty, Nintendo always had a problem with this and I blame the press/fans for never calling them out on this.

I wish the gaming media would stop giving Nintendo a pass. Yes they have done good with the Switch and I enjoyed BotW, Splatoon 2 and Mario Odyssey (less) on it, however:
- most games the Switch are lacking and badly priced;
- the full price years old port trend is starting to rear it's ugly head (FUCK YOU BETHESDA!) after the PS4/XO early life ep;
- still no streaming apps;
- zero support for cloud saving or any backup management solution;
- and these so called sale offers are worse than the competition.

And the fact they want to charge a plus-like subscription and offer pretty much nothing in return other than:

- the ability to play online, that you've got but they're taking it away in 2018;
- PS+ like monthly free games: the some fucking ancient NES/SNES games they've been milking for ages now;
- NO cloud saves;
- and special discounts, which, if the current discounts are anything to go by, will no likely be shit.

At this rate, all that needs to happen is for the competition to release a similar product compatible with the current gen lib. and Nintendo is back to WiiU relevance again; i.e. no one give a shit.

Well f*ing brace yourself then! As no doubt greedy Bethesda is thinking about re-re-remaking 4KHD^2 this old gen port and selling for 60$ as a xbox one x exclusive. Heck, they might even add lootboxes, as games are so expensive to make for poor Beth.

How well does Skyrim on Switch compare to PS4?

Boku

Considering the price, Id say it compares terrible.
Im all fine with paying full price for a proper new game. 50/60 for a 7 year old port that can be played on any ohter platfor for less than half the price? No way you can justify that!

Skyrim and Doom for the Nintendo Switch, as impressive as they are, at that price, are skippiddie skip!

Last-gen revisited: Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

Boku

3 years ago

I had the pleasure of trying out the X360 version after a work friend showed up one day raging about it. It's a fucking ABOMINATION and the people in charge of this port, the assholes who gave the ok on this to reach store shelves while keeping it quiet and having the odacity to charge [s]full price[/s] any amount of money, should be: burned, beaten and then burned again! At least that's how I would feel if I would've bought the x360/PS3 version.
Thankfully I got the PC version. Unfortunately my friend didn't.


Surprised there's no mention of the studio that did the port on the x360/ps3 version, Behaviour Interactive. Apparently these guys are working on Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade. If you have any interest in that francise, well that's fucking great!

Destiny thrills, but the big picture rings hollow

Boku

4 years ago

Is Destiny a flat game? Well it kinda is, but it kinda isn't. But it kinda is...

I really don't see the point of these type of 'blog entriess' other than to ... well, blog about it. I'm hopping jurnos will get more balls and call things as they are instead of writing diplomatic articles, as to suit everyones opinion.

--

Did not get the chance to try this, but from the general consensus of people the have been playing it and what I've read/heard about the game online and offline, Destiny is a giant letdown. It's a pseudo-MMO with a handfull a levels that are recycled over and over with a routine of a gameplay mechanic.

The only good point about it is that the shooting and feel of it is solid, which was a given from the start and I would not have expected anything different from Bungie. But that alone won't make me get it.
A damn shame as this was my most anticipated next-gen game. :(

DICE ponders: what did people really like about Battlefield: Bad Company?

Boku

4 years ago

As someone who never cared about BF or anyother MP focused FPS, I had a blast with BC/BC2.
How the hell do you remake a game in a series that was never seen to it's conclusion? BF BC2 ends with a cliffhanger. Start there, make a BC3.

Also this!

The gun play in BC2 was ahead of it's game, utterly sublime, still hasn't been matched in more recent Battlefield games. Why they chose to eschew that model is beyond me.

There's nothing quite like pulling off a head shot from a kilometer away, aiming two inches above your target.

I never asked for it because I never wanted it and still don't.
What I'm asking for is a next gen Fable 2 with focus on singleplayer and improved systems (world, AI, physics, quests, depth, etc). I'm asking for it because that's what I want and until I get what I want, there will be no sale on my part.

Enjoy selling your crappy 3rd person co-op MOBA.

Lords of the Fallen is like Dark Souls - a next-gen Dark Souls, to say it right.
If anything I saw/read about this game is true, then NO, it fucking isn't. It sounded like it, at first, when they announced, but the more they showed of it, the more it looked like GoW with Darksiders visuals. That's not a bad thing, I look forward to this as precisely that, but this is not Dark Souls. It will not, under no circumstances, scratch that Souls itch.
