New Rock Band is in development for PS4 and Xbox One - report

I've always love Rock Band/Guitar Hero, I've always seen them as one of the best games ever invented (up there with Space Invaders and Speedball 2)... but having been hammering the life-changing and if-not-more-amazing Rock Smith for the last year, I doubt I'd bother going back to Rock Band. Unless I was smashed out of my face and wanting to impress... ;)

Great to see a re-review. I was wondering if you were going to, and pleased you did.

I didn't play the original too much - from my perspective, someone who doesn't really play battles (just the campaign) - everything has been tweaked for the better.

Video Games: The Movie review

Kylun

4 years ago

You know what would make a good video game documentary?

A video game documentary in the medium of a video game.

I mean - you can have comics that explain how comics work (see the wonderful 'Understanding Comics' by Scott McCloud) - then why not get equally meta? A computer game that explains, and allows you to play, the history of video games.

Now that would be superb way to legitimise video games as a serious medium.

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

Kylun

4 years ago

This is a dumb as hell.

Listening to a song in a game is... exactly like listening to a song, which you are expected to pay for.

Seeing a tattoo depicted in a game is... nothing like actually having that tattoo on your arm - the thing you'd pay for.

It's exactly like viewing a another persons tattoo, which is not something you'd be charged for... or at least if my friends started to charge for it, I'd rapidly have less friends... :)

This is just misguided greed, ultimately. The line "It seems Escobedo is less adamant about getting money from when a tattooed person shows off their ink job on TV, in a magazine, or in a movie" effectively shows the hypocrisy. Trouble is, games have big money, and when there is big money, everyone tries to get their slice of the pie.

Nickelback singer slams Guitar Hero

Kylun

10 years ago

God I fucking HATE Nickleback, but the guy kind of has a point. If everyone who spent the same amount of time playing real and learning guitars instead of playing what is essentially a poor copy of a guitar, we would have better musicians and possibly more bands to get excited about.

Replace "playing what is essentially a poor copy of a guitar" with; "watching football", "playing football", "cleaning dishes", "picking their nose", "pulling their thumb from their arse", "fucking Michelle" or whatever the fuck you like, and the point is just as applicable, but highlights it irreverance.

I'm in a rock band - one of 300 active bands in Brighton. We've upwards of 5 different practice studios which are always booked up to the rafters. Why do I not get the impression we're lacking in bands? Venues - possibly, promoters - definately, drummers - unfortunately. But not bands.

Funnily enough, Guitar Hero has inspired me to actually learn the Bass, and is now doing the same for Drums.

Warhammer Battle is a table-top game - NOT a roleplaying game!

Warhammer RPG is role-playing game!

You can tell as there are clues in the name.

Why is it game reviewers - people who are supposed to know about games, regardless of computer or not - can't distingish between two massively different types. It's like getting card games mixed with dice.

This game can't display it's RPG roots, since *this* game doesn't have any.

... it's okay - I'm over it now... ;)

Xbox boss speaks out on ratings issue

Kylun

10 years ago

Lets invent a new rating system for every single different type of medium avaliable... having done that we could invent new rating systems for every time of delivery mechanism. Then after that, we could invent different rating systems based on genre, or possibly the type of art used on the cover of each box. Or maybe one based on the primary colour used on the art of the each box. And then, and then, and then....

Or we all just use the BBFC - have a single source, with universally recognised symbols and standards.

Can you go into further detail? I've never played Halo but from everything I've read it doesn't do anything new for the genre, although it is supposed to be a mighty fine game.

Halo is simply a perfection of the simple FPS - no "real" gimicks just perfect gameplay. The AI is very intelligent, and like Tricky says - its more about strategy.... for example - the "little guys" often panic easily, lobbing a genade in their midst often scatters them, and you can then pick them off from cover, before contemplating the less panicky "big guys".... the level design in Halo is appauling, but somehow works in the fact that you spend all your time thinking about how your gonna kill the next lot, and not about the pretty graphics on a wall etc (just follow the arrow!).....

The AI gives the opportunity for so many unique classic "remember that time when...." moments....

Also the game is very "sober" - the controls are quite slow in their movenment - it means that while PC FPS collapse into random stuttering messes - the combat in Halo is considered and well thought out. (I know this isn't a great explaination...?!)

When you play - remember to blink. I got an eye infection (for two bloody months!) playing Halo for the first time as I kept forgetting to blink.....

It's also the only game that I've completed more than once (I'm on my forth time, now) :) And the co-operative story mode (on Legendary) is quite simply exquisite!
