Konami announces plan for brand new Metal Gear series

Fobocop

Kojima is the soul of Metal Gear. His idiosyncrasies are what make the series great. While some would prefer a less quirky, less 'Kojima' Metal Gear - I feel it would become soulless and generic. We don't need more of that in gaming.

Watch Dogs 2 must "appeal to fans in a new way", creative director says

Fobocop

I liked this game - it was fun.

It was never going to live up to the ridiculous levels of hype that surrounded it though.

The developers, games press and us gamers are all partly responsible for this.

I think I would prefer that they focus on 4 before letting slip about future games. I'm getting assassined out!

BioShock Infinite prequel e-book announced for Amazon Kindle

In fairness - the Bioshock: Rapture novel was pretty good.

Sure, it's nice to read great books, and I would love to say I spent my time reading critically acclaimed literary fiction. Sometimes I do, but sometimes I just want the literary equivalent of junk food.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City announced for iOS and Android

What a terrible way to treat a genuine classic on its tenth anniversary! This needs a current gen retail release alongside 3 and SA - with proper HD upgrade and, most importantly, the improved camera controls from SA implemented across all three titles. A nice booklet or something, and a nicely done case would be the icing on the cake.

Film companies have been doing this with classics for years, so they must sell!

This looks great!

The cel shading really stands up to the HD remaster - would love to see Wind Waker and XIII get the same treatment!

EA's Gibeau: "I have not green lit one game to be developed as a single-player experience"

Fobocop

6 years ago

@CaptainJelly - Ha ha ha, shame on you! Seriously though, you can't help liking a game, and some have genuinely good MP aspects (Dead Space 2 for example).

I think my cynicism comes when the single player aspect is either compromised, or worse not funded at all.

In a way I feel sorry for developers - sure they want to make Bioshock, but Call of Duty is what sells.

I grew up sitting alone in a darkened room playing single player games, and it is still one of my favourite things in the world - I guess I just don't want them to disappear!

I was about to have a rant about this. Surely, I thought, they must understand that no-one in their right mind buys a game like Mass Effect 2 for the multi player?

But then I thought - they must have data on this? Enough people must have put in enough hours on the MP aspect of these games, and spent enough money on MP DLC, to make it an area of focus?

So - it's to those people I will shake my fist at and say - buy some decent MP games you twonks, and stop fucking up great single player games!

Sega: Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing Transformed Wii U graphics on-par with PlayStation 3 version, "maybe even better"

Fobocop

6 years ago

The Wii U will likely have great games - but for me, shelling out full price on a machine that is only on par with current gen machines... not going to happen! I want a new console to be a thing of wonder, and to be blown away by the visuals - like I was seeing the dinosaur demo on Ps1! I realise this isn't the case for a lot of people, and for them I genuinely hope this machine delivers new, exciting experiences through other means.

Cave drops PlayStation Vita titles

Fobocop

6 years ago

I really hope the Vita picks up. It's a great machine that just needs some more decent games and maybe a price drop to around 150 for the wifi model.

This kind of news won't convince people to pick one up though.

The world would be a poorer place without Sony in the hardware game - they release such beautiful, idiosyncratic machines. Ok, some of their design choices are a bit nuts but... Yeah, come on Vita, you can do it!

Really glad to see positive comments about SUAM - I always enjoy it and am glad to see other people do too. Was half expected some negativity as I can see how the presenters may annoy some people!

Like most people though, I watch it less since the terrible new dash was introduced - I actually couldn't find the archived episodes which used to be easily accessible.

Bah! I miss the blades!

I'm not really sure what the deal is with Nintendo's release schedule - we have Mario 1 but not 3, or world. We have NES Metroid, but not Super Metroid... my money is here - why don't they want it?!

GAME won't stock Street Fighter x Tekken, Asura's Wrath

Fobocop

6 years ago

It's a real shame that video games will have a reduced high street presence.

It's also a shame that people (some who even care about games) will lose their jobs.

But, I just can't care about the death of a company who seem so devoid of any passion for gaming and have done very little to promote them other than for corporate gain. Yes, they are a commercial organisation - but they were also in a position to be ambassadors for our industry and they did next to nothing.

@loserb0i - I think it just came out at a bad time when people were sick of the yearly updates. On its own merit though it is easily up there with 2 or 3 just lacks the nostalgia factor!

Where are they getting large volumes of one week old pre-owned from?

Surely the amount of customers who buy a game, complete it, then trade in time for it to be processed for delivery to someone else it will be miniscule?

This and THPS3 were the pinnacle of the series and stole hundreds of hours of my time! It's quite sad how poor the later games were. I tried the demo of the latest one and it just felt... grey.I agree THPS2 should be on PSN - that would set me up for the rest of the day!
