PlayStation VR is beginning to feel a bit like the Vita

Nazo

Not sure it is such a great thing. Indies definitely have their place but I'll be disappointed if we don't get more bigger titles like RE7 and Skyrim on PSVR going forwards.

Max Payne 3 and the conflict at the heart of Rockstar's game design

Nazo

2 months ago

Max Payne 2 is one of my favourite games ever but I never played 3, couldn't imagine a Rockstar Max Payne would live up to Remedy's work.
I got the happy ending in MP2 so there was no need for it anyway. Max and Mona lived happily ever after, the end.

Wii U's karaoke app has made the jump to Switch

Nazo

My wife is gonna want this. Which means a Switch might make its way into our household sooner than I thought.

Then again the Karaoke games were my excuse for keeping the PS2 in the front room, so that might have to go. You win some, you lose some I guess.

I kind of hope he doesn't. I love the Yakuza games but the 2 are only superficially related. What I definitely don't want to see in S3 are levels, experience points, any of that stuff.

Lovefilm by Post to be closed forever on Halloween

Nazo

Disappointed by this, I still use it for Japanese films, anime and just regular films, which come to the service way before they are available for streaming (or at least the included in Prime streaming).
Apparently Cinema Paradiso offer a similar service, I may look at them when Lovefilm ends.

Persona 5's translation is a black mark on a brilliant game

Nazo

11 months ago

The idea that stilted translations help the atmosphere of a game and somehow conveys 'foreigness' is clearly nonsense. We wouldn't accept it in a translation of a Murakami novel, we shouldn't accept it in a game either.

Some of the characters in game are highly intelligent and articulate, how can that be conveyed when their dialogue is near-gibberish?

A good translation can convey the essence of a place and culture without needing to butcher the language its written in.

Mass Effect Andromeda is another failure for trans representation

Nazo

1 year ago

Zelda has a trans character? Wow.

I'm curious how you know that other characters aren't trans. Presumably if the surgery is sufficiently successful it would be difficult to tell? So the only way to 'include' a trans character is to explicitly call it out somehow leading to fumbles like this.

Awful clickbait headline for an article focussed on technical analysis.

The Yakuza games have always impressed me from a technical perspective, they really make the most of the limited resources they have. I've just gone back to Ishin on PS3 after a period playing AC:Syndicate on PC and it really struck me how nice it looks considering the old hardware it's on.

Watch: Our best (and worst) game bugs

Nazo

2 years ago

I had a similar bug to Wes in New Vegas, one mission appears for 2 different factions and completing it for one puts it in a broken state for the other preventing you from progressing.

I don't agree that these bugs are inevitable though, these kinds of things are just scripting flaws. It should be perfectly possible to test the logic through automation. Having testers sit down and actually play through the game isn't the only way to test software.

Got this yesterday to see if it could keep visitors entertained for a bit. It worked for a while but we ended up on Wii Sports in the end as usual.

It was an interesting story and nicely done, but we stumbled across a clip fairly early that seemed to explain what had happened (rightly or wrongly) and the motivation to continue wasn't really there after that.

Keith Stuart on violence in crime fiction and video games

Nazo

2 years ago

Enjoyable article although I think the fact that the player is an active participant in the violence rather than observing it or acting as a detective clearly sets games aside.

I agree with the points made about Assassin's Creed Syndicate. It's my first AC game and I genuinely have no idea whether I'm playing as the good guys or bad guys or why the things I'm doing are supposed to be important.
Having said that I don't think there's quite the dissonance there as the non-interactive sections make it clear that they are basically murderers. I suppose it's mode akin to something like dramatisations of the Kray twins which show their charming traits as well as their psychopathic ones.

I don't see anything new here, the Apple TV has been around for ages and hasn't taken off at all.
The only products that really do well for Apple are ones that people can be seen using. A fashion device stuck under the TV where no-one will see it isn't that appealing.

Why I will never call video games a hobby

Nazo

3 years ago

I think the term 'video games' is unfortunate as it limits what can be included and leads to boring debates about whether something is a game or not. 'Cinema' or 'film' is all about the medium rather than the content.

But yeah, I don't think we're at a point where they could be called important yet. Perhaps things are moving in that direction though.
