Far Cry 5 review - a competent yet conflicted open worlder

More of the same, but the whole game is playable with a friend? Yeah, sign me up, even if it would have been nice if they'd changed the formula up a bit!

Burnout Paradise Remastered review - driving perfection

Monkey_Puncher

1 month ago

I always preferred the linear tracks of Revenge tbh, I'd love to see a remake if that and Takedown in 1 package.

I'll likely give this another go, but it didn't grab me like the previous games had.

PlayStation 4 exclusive Detroit: Become Human has a release date

Monkey_Puncher

2 months ago

@Games_Should_Be_Fun - I think the issue is the topic is being raised by a creepy narcissist like Cage. Nothing about that guy makes me believe it will be handled with the respect and nuance the subject deserves. The reports of a toxic environment at the developer only make me have even less faith in the developer and their 'vision'.

Big layoffs at Capcom Vancouver, new Dead Rising reduced in scope

Monkey_Puncher

2 months ago

I believe Dead Rising 3 was the best game in the series in terms of simplyfying some aspects of the game style, but still making it engaging.

4 went too far in the direction of oversimplification. I loved the environment, but you never felt any sort of threat and the lack of psychos was a real mistake.

9 million in 2 months? Wow, that's insane!

If I remember rightly Mario Galaxy never used to sell in those numbers on Wii, was always the New Super Mario Brothers games that sold those sorts of numbers.

Well done Nintendo, really knocking it out of the park!

Monkey_Puncher

Be nice to hear they were bringing some of the old employees of Lionhead in to help out.

It's good that they're keeping the development in Blighty. Playground certainly have the technical chops, just hope they manage to staff up with plenty of staff with more varied experience of developing open world and RPG games.

Oh and it needs whimsy, a whole truckload of whimsy!
