Konami announced a new Castlevania game

LFace

1 week ago

@giorgoskatsas I was excited by the SF miniatures game when it was announced but then I saw the kickstarter and lost all interest. Hiding the original SF2 characters behind stretch goals when not all pledges get stretch goals is as bad as the gouging dlc video games have when locking away main game content behind paywalls.

Having multiple tiers is absolutely fine with board games on KS. I've backed several that utilised this but they weren't as money grabbing as this one is.

@Anrkist I think it will be unlikely that they will fix them. I wouldn't be surprised if it was intentional to push them in this order like the much hated Facebook news feed ordering they changed many years ago. It is so easy to fix and should be sorted within an hour for any capable web developer, yet here we are a couple of weeks after the redesign and its still knackered. Speaks volumes.

@F10XDE I was in same boat. Why Sony didn't add pass through for HDR is mind boggling to say the least. I bought an HDMI extension cable which is easy to switch cables between the regular console and the processing unit when I want to use VR. Still a ball ache but not as big of one.

Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection coming to PS4, Xbox One, PC and Switch

LFace

5 months ago

I grew up with SF1 in the arcade which was a very popular machine back in the day with people queuing to play it. This was also before people knew it had hidden moves in. The moment people knew you could do the fireball attack it increased in popularity but nobody quite knew how to pull it off (phrasing). It resorted to people rubbing the joystick (more phrasing) in the bottom corner and tapping weak punch repeatedly until it happened.

The game was so memorable to my childhood that when I could afford it, I later bought an arcade cabinet with the SF1 PCB. It was glorious.

I still play the game now in emulators on Raspberry Pi for example. It is a very misunderstood game purely because of how "janky" it is in comparison to modern fighters. I will always love it though and this collection is a day one purchase even though I have every single one of the games on my Pi.

The history of bleem!

LFace

5 months ago

I was heavily into the emulation scene back in the day from the rise of davesclassics to retrogamer and emuunlim (cough).
I remember when bleem came out and was cracked within hours of release by some kid.

Back then people had working emulators like PS Emu Pro (I think that was the name?) that allowed increased resolution and other effects to improve on the graphics. They ran pretty well.

Once people got hold of bleem (no doubt from the cracked version, after all back in the emulation days people were pirating stuff left right and centre but that's for another discussion) and it ran far worse than the free emulators available then it became a laughing stock in the "scene". The bleem channel on IRC had a crazy number of visitors asking why games did not run well due to lack of memory whereas in the free emulators they ran smooth with increased features, and no answer was given. Bleem was a paid for product that was inferior in every way to the free ones.

@AhSoul Well my box was damaged and one of the bosses was too when it arrived, some of the white cubes are missing, and I've emailed them 3 times now and had automated responses and no resolution.
I've enjoyed the game dont get me wrong. The delays, splitting the stuff into two waves, the translation farce, the very lengthy delays in shipping to some countries - those are shambolic.

I will be *very* surprised if Wave 2 is delivered on time. And the laughable Armour set figures and the poor poses they chose are another issue but as they were stretch goal freebies I am not too bothered by them.

@Diji1 In this case they did indeed ban without evidence. They even admitted that they did not know for sure but still went ahead and gave a one week ban.

Not that I condone stuff like stream sniping, but I do not think it should be a bannable offense even if there is evidence. Streamers on Twitch etc can delay their broadcast which would put a stop to any sniping so if the option exists for streamers then they should use it

This will no doubt get a bit of backlash, which I half understand, but I'll pose the question anyway..

Is this going to be 100% PC only or will a console version see the light of day? I admit it will probably not be ideal on a controller, but having come from the PC Master Race many years ago where I used to play non-stop Quake 2/3/UT/CS etc to working full time coding/developing on a PC at work, I cannot face playing on PC anymore at home so I switched to consoles and laying down on the couch.

Would be nice to pick up and have a quick game or two on PS4 though something tells me this probably wont happen

Ultra Street Fighter 2: The Final Challengers review

I stand by the review taking price into account, and I believe this should be the case in all reviews. If a game was 10 minutes long but those 10 minutes just so happen to be absolutely amazing, yet it costs £79.99, would you agree with the review if it said it was an essential? What about Recommended?

There has to be a justification in said review that price has had a negative impact on the "score" and this review does so.

I applaud you Wes for sticking to your guns and showing that a scandalous price for a game should indeed be chastised.

Injustice 2 review

LFace

12 months ago

Not to take anything away from the review which I found very good, but all way through it I'm seeing praises for systems and mechanics in the game like they are new and not seen before, when really they were in MKX.

It is the same developer so naturally they have their engine and have used it for both this and MK which is absolutely fine, but pointing out mechanics as new when they were seen a few years ago in another game is not that good really.

Pointing out all the mechanics of Bloodborne such as respawning mobs when you die, having to collect your blood echoes where you died etc as being a game changer after they were used in Souls games in various guises is a tad silly, so it should apply to fighting games by the same developer too.

EA reckons 40% of console game sales will be downloads by the end of 2017

Probably already covered somewhere in the comments, but I'm 100% digital now on the PS4. Its just easier when changing games to not have to get up and swap discs. I also don't like having shelves of media on display anymore. Yeah some digital games are more expensive than physical, but as I do not sell games on (learned that lesson in the past and regret selling all my older stuff now) I find the trade off on a slightly higher price to be worth it for convenience.

Nobody knows what will happen in the future in regards to these digital libraries we accumulate from PS+, PSN, GWG etc, but I would like to hope that as new consoles come like PS5 that they would feature backwards compatibility and then the library can be easily accessed and no worry of discs deteriorating.

I wouldn't say these were "never before seen" as I'm sure I noticed it donkeys years ago when I used to go to the arcade in Barnsley to play SF2.
I'm not usually one to moan about content on websites, as it is their choice what to show, but a full article about a glitch that can *only* be done against one character, in a game that is years old and probably is known by a lot of people.. was that really necessary ?

I dread to think how much coverage there would be if someone noticed on Sonic 1 an extra 5 pixel high flower in the background if you stand in a certain spot..

Nintendo Switch Street Fighter 2 first-person mode looks janky

LFace

1 year ago

@kevboard
It kind of is a re-release just with extra pointless additions. However at its core, it still has the massive problem the original HD version had - slapping HD sprites over the existing animation just do not work and looks awful. The juddering basic animations looked out of place back then, and now it just looks embarrassing.

Look at the scene - crowds have 2 or 3 frames of animation. Main characters look like a fans first dabble with Mugen. It looks and feels wrong.

The "new" characters are palette swaps. Utterly pointless additions.

I love SF2 as much as any fan that played it on release, but come on its 2017 now and it is best served as a very cheap emulated arcade version rather than expensive rehash. Just play it on a Raspberry Pi and have done with it.

Unfortunately things will continue to go up in price as time passes. This was forewarned prior to the vote, but still the unwashed uneducated racists went out in force to "Make Britun Gret and get rid of Immigruntz" and this is what we are left with. You can put the blame on greedy companies putting price up for no reason as much as you like but the fact is everything costs more in the UK now including behind the scenes stuff you may not even think about.

I will no doubt be negged by the 52% that thought putting our country back to the dark ages was a good idea, but frankly I do not care.

Diablo 3 players divided on 20th anniversary patch

LFace

1 year ago

Free content is to be applauded not vilified. Although I don't think the anniversary content appeals to me, I still think it was a nifty idea and have no problems with it.
Would I have preferred a Diablo 1 (or 2) remaster? Absolutely, as I never played those.

The Necromancer is a tricky one though. It looks an interesting class and I'm all for adding content to D3 even if its only one class. Should it be paid DLC? I don't mind either way. D3 isn't a subscription game so any future content they make is technically out their own pockets (though very deeply filled pockets I might add) so should they make content for free? That's going to be varying opinions on whoever you ask. I personally don't mind and no doubt will pony up the cash for it.

Could be worse, they could charge for the D1 content and add Microtransactions to unlock each Necromancer ability..

Super Mario Run review

LFace

1 year ago

I was looking forward to this. I did a moan post a few days ago berating the always on component and that still stands, but I still wanted to try it.
I downloaded it on iPhone 6 and played demo levels.. I was bored by the end of the second level. Its just not that fun unfortunately. It plays too slow and feels like if you were playing Super Mario without knowing about the run button.

The levels (although only seeing first two so cant comment on rest) are bland and is just coin collecting which frankly isn't entertaining. If the levels get better then it is a bad design decision as the first levels should grab you and want you to play more.

I cant recommend the game. Not bad enough to stamp it as Avoid, but for me it is not worth £8 and playing the demo has made me sure I wont be parting with my cash.

Super Mario Run only playable with an internet connection

LFace

1 year ago

I'll chip in on the always online aspect. I have zero problems with a console being online only for gaming (such as my PS4) as that is connected to my router 24/7. No issue.
On a mobile phone however? Thats dreadful and counter intuitive. People can scoff and say its 2016 and unlimited 4G data exists etc. Fair point, it does. I have an unlimited 4G sim card. I also get an hour long bus to work every day and the point where I would play on my phone. There are black spots on that route however where data does not exist. That would cause the game to be unplayable thus rendering it useless and not fit for *my* purpose.

Stating that people have WiFi in most places and at home is not relevant at all. If you are in a fixed abode with wifi, chances are you are at home or at work - if you are at home and into gaming, I highly doubt you would be pissing about on a mobile phone and instead would be on a proper gaming machine such as a PC or Console. If you are at work, you will be working and probably get a virtual slap at the back of the head if caught gaming on your phone during work time.

Nintendo doing this is just plain stupid and there really is no justification argument that applies.

Board games understand the pleasures of taking things out of the box

LFace

1 year ago

I've recently got into board gaming myself and after many years of assuming they were beardy and all about painting miniatures to have a fantasy war on a little playfield like you see in Games Workshop, I have seen the light that there is so much more than that.
Game of Thrones, Fury of Dracula, Besieged, Bloodrage, Relic are to name a few I've had a dabble in and they were all bloody good fun.

Its become a slight addiction and I've been checking kickstarter out in the last few months (though thinking I now need to uninstall that app on my phone) and backed Dark Souls, Massive Darkness, Bears vs Babies (not quite board game but still counts), and most recently Yokai Quest which is looking pretty stunning.

If like me you presumed board gaming to be smelly unkempt bearded blokes that have never heard of body spray then think again, it is quite a good bit of social fun to have with a few mates.
