Iíve spent the last few days grieving the death of my dad, who died this Christmas. Itís been an absolutely horrendous experience, which I would have struggled to cope with but for the necessity to keep it together for the sake of my newborn son and being able to lose myself for a time in Breath of the Wild. I think it would have been my GOTY regardless but it now has extra special meaning for me. Thank you, Nintendo.

Iíd really like Azure Striker Gunvolt but Iíd already bought it on 3DS and am loathe to buy it again for what is actually a not insignificant amount of money. I live in the faint hope that one day, Nintendo will ensure cross-platform purchases are a common practice.

A dog has turned my life into an RPG

LudusSolers

7 months ago

I never had or wanted a dog until I met my wife. She has a female pug and her daughter has a chihuahua. One ďhappy accidentĒ later, and I now am the owner of a chug (yes, really) named Frank.

Strange thing is, in the year that we helped deliver him (good grief, that was an experience...) - raising him, dealing with the constant picking up of dog poo, his constant chewing of inappropriate household items, his predilection for eating anything (food or not, he isnít fussy) - my life would be all the poorer without him, and the other two for that matter. I love that Iím now a dog person, and like Christian, I feel like Iím now part of a special adventure.

I love this article - thank you Christian and EG for putting a huge smile on my face this afternoon while Iím sat in an office fighting off flu.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild's Master Trials DLC is the perfect addition for those still playing

LudusSolers

10 months ago

@StormReach it's worth considering if only for the Hero's path and travel medallion, which makes exploration and revisiting special / new areas so much easier - especially when fast travel points aren't nearby. Trial of the Sword is incredibly addictive but gets really hard as you progress. Like the MK8 DLC, this is well worth every penny in my opinion.

Work, starting a new business, buying a new house and all the other adulting stuff has meant that I've only put 20 hours into BotW - just reaching my first Divine Beast, Vah Ruto. What I've seen so far though has been amazing, and there's so much to see and do - I spent half an hour the other day trying out different recipes! It will take me months to complete and I already have the same sense of immersion and excitement I had when I played Link to the Past, Ocarina of Time and Wind Waker. I also suspect that like those titles, I'll drag out playing BotW when I'm getting close to the endgame, as I won't want this to finish (although I'm intrigued by the future expansion pack). Short of Mario Kart / Odyssey and / Splatoon 2 being absolutely perfect, I don't think I'll enjoy playing anything else as much as Zelda this year.

EDIT: spelling...

@Helmic Android would never be seen as a viable OS choice due to the piracy prevalent on the platform.

Nintendo will have their hands full with managing piracy on R4-type devices if the rumours of carts are true, before even considering securing against Android vulnerabilities.

Curious to see exactly what this build looks like and how it'll work. Nintendo will undoubtedly cut costs by having a single platform to develop for instead of splitting dev team resources between console and handheld, with a possible added benefit of seeing more - first party, at least - titles available for the "home" console than was previously achievable with Wii / Wii U. Speaking of which, the long-requested console version of Pokťmon may finally be realised too.

Interesting times ahead...

EA details UFC 2, cover star revealed as Ronda Rousey

LudusSolers

2 years ago

Having watched her fight on Saturday, it will be difficult to see how Ronda could win a rematch with Holly Holm. She was completely outclassed and outfought from the opening bell. In fact I thought she had lost before they even got into the octagon, due to her antics at the pre-fight face off. Short of completely overhauling her game, she has no chance of regaining her title. She's still the most marketable fighter UFC have on their roster, other than Jon Jones, though.

Video: Introducing Low Batteries, a series about mental health and gaming

LudusSolers

3 years ago

@SuperShinobi That's a grossly inaccurate assumption; I'm writing from the position of someone who has depression, not as someone who has felt 'depressed' or down. You're still not getting it. I live with this - like many others in this thread - and it isn't something to be taken lightly. I ask you again, please think about what you are writing - your increasingly OT posts have been at best misguided and at worst, dismissive and dangerous.
3 1

LudusSolers

3 years ago

@SuperShinobi I wanted to give you the benefit of the doubt, but your comment about "stupid anti-depressant pills" is not only misinformed, but dangerous. Depression and other mental health issues are not just some sort of malaise or "funk" but can mostly be attributed to chemical imbalances in the brain. That's what the root cause can be, and it's important to get properly diagnosed, so proper treatment - inclusive of medication to address those chemical imbalances, and other means of therapy - can be prescribed safely.

Your comments are, in my view, unhelpful. I really think you're missing the point, which is, videogames can be useful as part of an approach towards managing and allieviating what can actually be pretty damned unmanageable episodes affecting someone's mental health.

Please think very carefully about what you are writing before you post again.

A great article and I'm looking forward to seeing more videos in the future. I have a couple of Sadgames; Super Metroid and Arkham City. I still have struggles with depression and am coping with a low swing at the moment. Both of those games - and several others, actually! - have helped me manage to cope when stress or loneliness act as a trigger. It's great that EG takes this subject seriously, and I'd just like to thank Johnny and the team for capturing so eloquently what, for a long time, I could not express myself.

Pixels: the Eurogamer review

LudusSolers

3 years ago

I actually saw this a couple of weeks ago as Cineworld had an Unlimited early preview. I didn't think it was awful (although my expectations were pretty low to begin with) but I certainly wouldn't have paid money to buy a ticket to go see it.

What struck me the most (asides from the seriously creepy implications of Q-Bert's "ending" with Josh Gad) was that it seemed like such a wasted opportunity. With a (much) better script and a decent director, this could have been a great comedy - something which evoked memories of Ghostbusters. As it turned out, it was frustratingly puerile, not particularly funny and generally disappointing overall.

That being said, it still was nowhere near as bad as Fantastic Four.
