What's lost and what's gained in Destiny 2's excellent PC version

Eighthours

6 months ago

I've always wondered why WASD is still the standard for PC shooters, and why no one has made a control device that combines the speed of a mouse with the better feel of console left stick movement. Actually, I suppose the Steam Controllers were supposed to do this, but we know what happened to them...

Super Mario Odyssey, somewhat surprisingly only Tokyo EAD's second project after the deliciously unorthodox Donkey Kong Jungle Beat, was also infused with that same wistful magic.

Forza Motorsport 7 review

Eighthours

7 months ago

I don't get why anyone likes car tuning in these games, tbh. It completely unbalances the multiplayer and aspects of the single player, so any move away from this is good in my book. There's nothing like EQUAL competition, which is why the likes of PGR2 online, where driving skill was the only differentiating factor between players, was so much fun!

The creators of Burnout are making a Crash Mode spiritual successor called Danger Zone

Eighthours

12 months ago

Spending only four months on every game, it's unsurprising that none of them are quite hitting the mark, given that they all reproduce elements from AAA titles that Criterion have released in the past. Those memories are strong, and these piecemeal versions don't do enough in 2017.

Waking up Tuesday morning, still weary from the long, strange night of surprises that E3's first day of conferences conjured up, it was hard to tell if it had all been but a dream.

...strangest of all was the news that Shenmue 3 is being ushered into life by Yu Suzuki and a handful of the original development team.

That last one (Shenmue 3) was less of a surprise...

Monday night's reveal was a jaw-dropping surprise...

Well deserved for MS. Sony dropped the ball this 'holiday season' having barely any exclusives, and the ones they did have - Driveclub and Little Big Planet 3 - were a disaster at launch and sent to die respectively. The Xbone had a much better first-party lineup and aggressive bundle deals. Hopefully Sony will come back fighting next year, but the console sales war just got interesting.

You've got male

Eighthours

4 years ago

In a comic book landscape still dominated by white male characters, these were all much needed adjustments.
Well, no. What would have been much better would have been to create new superheroes who were more diverse, not to retcon existing characters which will piss off a portion of your audience while not really taking anything forward. There's nothing wrong with having a bunch of white male superheroes, as long as there are more (new) characters available that will inspire minority readership groups. Story should trump all - if a character is a black woman for diversity's sake rather than it making the execution of the story better, you're doing it wrong.

Entwined review

Some people seem to hate it when a reviewer dares to have their own opinion. Do you want the videogame press to be an homogenous mass with no individuality? Why even have separate websites if everyone is just going to say exactly the same things? Chris played the game, didn't like it as much as some other people and scored it accordingly. What's the issue?

The platforming looks as floaty, shit and game-ruining as ever. LBP could be such a great series if they tightened that aspect up, but it'll never reach its potential when someone so fundamental to the gameplay experience is bollocks. I appreciate how they're hamstrung by deciding to support old levels, but surely this issue is going to sully the game yet again. Baffling, baffling design choice.

Why Madden 15 is allowed to portray an athlete's tattoos

Eighthours

4 years ago

This already happens in other media. For example, Breaking Bad had to 'clear' any art shown on screen by making deals with the creators - this goes as far as having to get the legal right to show a piece of graffiti on a wall. In the train robbery episode of Season 5, all the graffiti on the box cars they had to hire for the train sequence was painted over in order to avoid the almost impossible task of clearing all the material.

The legal departments of films and TV shows have a fuckton of work to do in order to clear any potentially litigious material by gaining the requisite permissions before the air date, and in most cases before production even begins.

How roll7 made a game that was nearly impossible to beat

Eighthours

The lack of friend leaderboards in OlliOlli must count among the most blatant game design omissions in all of gaming in the past decade. No hyperbole. I'm really surprised the reviews weren't much harsher because of it. The potential of this game will always be limited until leaderboards are patched in, and it's beyond weird that no one involved in development or testing caught it. However, when they are in, the game will be AMAZING.
