@Rathbone yeah it's great. The guy in the shop tried to push me to get the Inpatient instead of this (pointed to the graphics of superhot). Glad I stuck to my guns.

Though I hit my daughter while playing superhot!

Bought it before the price drop but no regrets. Superhot is immensely fun and can't wait to get my hands on resident evil and Skyrim.

In praise of the Wii U, my son's first console

Paulie_P

1 year ago

My 5 year old daughters first console and my 3 year old son's. Wii U has consistently thrown up games for them to enjoy. For some reason the few kid friendly games for PS and Xbox dont click with them.

Highlights from the Wii U.
- playing through Wind Waker with my eldest daughter (9), her first Zelda
- teaching my 4 (now 5) year old daughter and 2 year old son (now 3) how to play 2d mario through making simple levels for them in Mario Maker.
- hundreds of hours my wife and I putting into Mario Kart. Shes a non gamer.
- my son beating my high score in one of NSMBs challenges. I have no idea how he did it and I cant catch him.
- Nintendoland Luigis mansion
- Playing through 3D World with my two eldest daughters and son.
- Rayman Legends

There are many more games I havent mentioned. Its been a great system for me and my family.

Bungie reassures fans disappointed that Destiny only has one playable area per planet

Paulie_P

4 years ago

Disappointment probably comes from the fact that a place on earth is tangible to us as it's a real place.

We are aware of different areas of the planet being vastly different with climate etc but on other planets we just think of them as one type of area across the whole planet.

I wish the non-glitch attempts would also get reported as much (I think there was a Super Metroid article last year) but I guess glitch attempts produce bigger wow headlines when you look at how quick it can be done.

@Spence1115 they wouldn't though. I've lent them games over the years and when I take it back maybe months later, I'd ask if they liked it and they'd tell me that they didn't even try it.

@Malek86 I would know a lot of people that wouldn't see the free games as incentive. Their PS/Xbox would be Pro Evo or FIFA exclusive with maybe 1 shooter they're hooked on.

It's a shame, they won't give any other games a chance but it seems with my age group, gaming will always have some stigma attached.

@havoc33 this just in. I didn't say they should've apologised, I said they had no balls in picking an easy target. That's why some of the better comedians make edgy jokes that sometimes make people wince as much as they laugh.

The EA Parody account's tweets were funnier.

The problem with DICEs tweets is that they picked an easy target. If they had the balls, they would've maybe joked about EA itself.

@Shariest that's my point, the reviewer seems more concerned that this isn't GTAV.

Many of the complaints levelled against this game are the same as the last two games so I can see why they might add up to a 7 for this reviewers opinion.

I am disappointed that it sounds like Sucker Punch haven't kicked on from the solid first two but I was getting that feeling when I saw some of the developer's interviews.

Personally though, those areas of complaint didn't annoy me with the first two so I'm still looking forward to this. Just going to have to play it for what it is and not for what it's not (GTA V).

Contrary to what the article says, you do have an impact on the other men dying. I think you had to talk to them as a sheep then their actual self in the bar.

When will we see a gay protagonist in a triple-A game?

Paulie_P

4 years ago

Has anyone mentioned Valkyria Chronicles yet? - it had gay characters and it actually affected the gameplay.

Personally, I wouldn't mind having a gay lead in a game. As long as it's handled well and the publisher doesn't use it as a 'aren't we progressive?' Feature in the game. Ashamed to say as a teenager, I might've had a problem with it but I was wrong back then.

@ARustyFirePlace actually, I'm talking in response to the Xbox One article, so I'm talking about the console industry.

you've just thrown out an unsubstantiated statement about how MS magically saved the PC industry. I'm not a PC gamer so I'm not going to be able to disprove this but I highly doubt it.

Also leave the name calling out of it.
