Does Sam Fisher's cameo in Ghost Recon Wildlands lead into a new Splinter Cell?

I'd happily take a fully remastered Chaos Theory right about now. I just like infiltrating sh*t silently and trying to be an actual agent. The latest installments went a bit too 'run and gun' for my liking.

God of War review: astonishing technological craft in the service of simple pleasures

Modhabobo

1 week ago

Super hyped for this, looks amazing and will be my first GOW game. However I mentioned this on another stream and got crucified for it, but I can't be the only one worried about the 'Last of Us'-itis Sony has with its in-house titles. It has found a narrative tone that worked and they are importing it into their other IPs. The scores attest this is a great idea, but for how long? Hell, at least they are still making first-party products.

I know many argue it is the way it is edited, but as soon as I saw him in said documentary, I knew he was a wrong-un. People who bang on about their dominance, and who look for cheaters everywhere, inevitably do that because they themselves are cheaters. They will always look to find their flaws in others

There are so many games from the past few years I never got round to playing that are coming to Switch and I'm psyched. For those who don't understand why Nintendo fans are excited, its because we've not had a platform with this kind of support in years! And for those who besmirch the platform, I just say play Zelda or Mario and if you don't have a massive grin 10 mins later I'll eat the proverbial.

Xbox Game Pass just got a lot better

Modhabobo

3 months ago

I've been an Xbox boy since the original, but the One / S / X never really excited me. Not because I don't love fancy dan graphic, more that none of the games or ideas they are making excite me. When Xbox was being launched they had ambitious projects like Fable and a killer FPS in Halo. With the 360 I was wedded to Live, and the cross party games ran well. However there were fewer exclusives. Gears of War, the original was exciting, the 4th one I couldn't give a toss about. Microsoft has created great hardware and a great user experience in Live, shame they don't have the games to go with it. I've gone for the Switch (with a PS4 in reserve) and I am super happy. I hope Microsoft get back in the game and bankroll some new IPs like Sea of Skulls but I won't hold my breath.

Just for the record re: my quote regarding Destiny 2 - I don't play a lot of shooters because I am an old ass man whose reflexes suck. I'm sure there are far better shooters out there, but personally I enjoyed Destiny 2. I liked making people's heads pop and getting whatever free gun I earned for it with my pals. Please don't hate me for it. Hate me for all the other valid reasons :D

@cheekyjay yeah, after I posted I also saw the tongue was firmly in cheek for @grassyknoll . However in the long run, that game is gonna make Nintendo a lot of money. Also, in regards to budgets for game development, I'm guessing unlike the expense photo realistic graphics require, I doubt this was as huge as something like GTA

@grassyknoll just did some napkin maths. If we say the average SMO sells for 45, and they sold over 2 million. That equates to 90 million. Add to that say 30k consoles sold this weekend (according to the stats I could find online) and this game, in 2 days, has generated over 98 million. Nintendo just updated their console sales figures and forecast on the back of this weekend. I'm pretty certain single player is here for the long haul.

The games industry needs a strong Nintendo. Not because of nostalgia, or softness, or anything else like that. No other company understands the basic premise of 'fun' better than them. I for one am glad to see them resurgent.

I had an idea for Mass Effect where you could have one which was called Mass Effect : Marooned. Where you are in a crash, your ship disintegrates on one planet. You then have to find your crew and get off. But it is like BoTW where you get your 4 skills in an intro, after which you need to find your crew. No markers, no universal map. It could be like a survival sim. You could have the crew being placed utterly randomly each play through. You could still have deep stories told through settlements you come across etc, but a lot of the gameplay could be emergent. Anyway, just a crappy idea really. I hope they come back to ME, loved the originally trilogy

The big interview: Sony's Jim Ryan

"Yes, everything looked like The Last of Us." - I was saying this to a friend only yesterday. God of War - Now a gritty father and son tale. Uncharted 4 was The Last of Us with your shitty brother who you don't want to see anymore. Fifa, Madden etc are introducing rags to riches tales. Everything is feeling even more homogenised than ever. Add to that the number of remakes and is it any wonder that the market seems less than enthused? In the desperation to be seen as works of serious merit, they've forgotten people like to play games because they are meant to be fun.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided's annoying microtransactions in the spotlight

Modhabobo

2 years ago

I appreciate that things such as DLC and "durables" etc prolong the life of games, and give developers extra income in this challenging climate to create games (the number of people employed to deliver DE:MD makes me think it cost an absolute bomb), however as a consumer I can't help but feel we're being milked for all its worth. They are always poorly implemented and end up penalising the consumer.

Nintendo took the shooter in a totally different direction, and created Splatoon.
They are now taking one of their most beloved franchises and trying something different. Something tells me this will be a game changer like Ocarina. Of all the companies in the world, it is Nintendo who I trust not to put out a shit game. Looks like they have taken learnings from lots of other games and will no doubt put a Nintendo spin on them. What's not to like?

Sony confirms PlayStation 4K

Modhabobo

2 years ago

The latest figures I've seen is that the PS4 had an installed user base of 40 million. That is 40 million consumers who will, once this has been announced will go from having the most powerful console on the market, to wanting to sell their PS4 to get the new one. They will fragment their user base with this two tiered ecosystem. Unfortunately for all of us, as consumers, Sony is merely replicating the buying pattern that we demonstrate with our mobile phones. We have made technology disposable, and long gone are the 10 year cycles. So as annoying as this may be, teeth gnashing and fingers typing, this is what it is, and it is a result of our own thirst for power, and Sony realising that there is a market that doesn't mind being treated poorly as long as they get the fastest console.

In Theory: Will future consoles share identical tech specs?

Modhabobo

2 years ago

I think a lot of console manufacturers see the speed and relish with which consumers upgrade their mobiles, and see this shorter console life span as a perfectly rational response to consumer behaviour. Sure the hand sets maybe 'free' on a contract, but if you're paying 45 a month for 24 months, you're spending more on that item than any console in history (barring the Neo Geo)

What the HD remakes of Nintendo games show me, along with the upscaled emulator images of Nintendo games, is that for art direction, there are very few companies that can match them. I am not saying they are the best, or that no one else does it well, merely that the level of care in designing visuals they show, with hardware constraints, is admirable.
