Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch - Wizard's Edition announced

Kanselier

6 years ago

You know, I'll be buying this edition just to "support" Namco Bandai. I doubt my pocket money will make a difference to their annual balance so perhaps "support" is not the right word in this context, but I appreciate Namco Bandai for spending resources on this game (localisation procedure must be a hell of a job). And the least I give in return is my pocket money.

Saturday Soapbox: The Majesty of Menus

Kanselier

6 years ago

Shadows of the Damned has a brilliant menu and deserves a mention.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OCS8m2B8IGU (starts at 1:20)

The combination of music, the scene (racing towards a tower), the badassery of Garcia F. Hotspur and the usage of "Start a New Road Movie" instead of "New Game"is magnificent.

Daytona DLC to invade Ridge Racer Vita

Kanselier

6 years ago

Wow, this tickled my interest far too much. I do not have a Vita yet (I will defo buy one) and this news definitely whet my appetite. I understand it is and sounds silly (after all, 1 car and 1 music track) but god damn, Ridge (game) and (one) Daytona (car) combined.

Dead Space 3 screenshots leak

Nothing about the information and the screenshots released so far fills me with confidence. It will probably be bigger, badder, corridorer and open-areaer but with every comparative a little bit of the old Dead Space soul dies.

Dead Space, we hardly knew ye.

Namco turned FlatOut dev prototype into Ridge Racer Unbounded

Kanselier

6 years ago

RR Unbounded has a heart of gold, and I appreciate what both parties tried to accomplish. However, there are bugs present that should - under no circumstance - be there. Even Bethesda rolls its eyes. One of the biggest flaws is the incomprehensible physics engine during the Stunt Time Trial runs. No only does your car bounce all over the place, when you play in hood cam mode the camera stays 'correct' even when your car is on its side. I can not count the times I swore and cussed at the screen because my car would not accelerate because it was on its side and the game forgot to inform me about that minor detail.

Again, I appreciate what both parties tried to do but to me it feels like a weak Split/Second, a weak Burnout and a weak Ridge Racer. I do hope though that a sequel will be made and Bugbear can iron out ALL of the issues that made this game - pardon my language - bargain bin material.

Ex-Mass Effect dev pleads: "judge DLC based on what it is"

Kanselier

6 years ago

@Seafort
I do not necessarily agree with that. You have to understand that DLC like developing any games takes time. Evidence that DLC files are on the retail disc does not mean the DLC in a working state is on the disc. Of course there are DLC files on the disc, the DLC is part of the development of the entire project. Some DLC get cancelled, some DLC make in into the "base" game, and some DLC gets released as DLC.

I honestly do not understand why people are getting so worked up about Ashes.

Mass Effect 3: PS3 frame-rate issues persist in final game

Kanselier

6 years ago

As a PS3 owner, my first reaction is "ouch" :/ The demo had severe framerate issues which surprised me, I can not remember ME2 had issues like that. True, ME2 did not have a spectacular scene like the scene in the ME3 but still, it feels a bit meh :/

Ah well, as long as the game is good eh lads :)

Good news. I am still on the main quest... well to be frank I am not. I am just doing all of the other stuff there is to do before I shall continue with the main story line. Lovely game and there is (so much) room for improvement. I do hope the main game + its DLC sells enough to warrant a sequel.
