His docs are well put together, and interesting - even if you don't like the game or are not familiar with it. They're like mini King of Kong videos minus the hyperbole-drama-bull. Well researched, edited and informed.

Here's the relevant Super Mario doc:

Sounds like Nintendo need to release a Colour A / Colour B version of the game and a Tournament Colour version of the game (Colour T) that has fixed IV stats instead of RNG, and all the pokemons from A & B. (And charge a higher price, natch).

Battle Royale's given Fortnite a pulse, but it still needs a soul

I'm not buying into the FBR is a shameless ripoff of PUBG that we(????) should feel guilty for.

Mortal Kombat, World Heroes, Killer Instinct, Fatal Fury, Tekken et al, all followed Street Fighter with its two fighters, energy bars, rounds and fighting. We didn't have to feel guilty then, did we!?

Should Xbox One owners feel guilty for having Killer Instinct because PS4 has Street Fighter V?

Iteration and replication is good for us consumers. we don't have to feel guilty because we get choice!

What on you on about man! Get a grip.

Fallout 4 can't come on PSVR, if anyone was wondering - it can't even hit 60FPS on PS4, so there's no way it can reach the necessary framerates and double rendering targets needed for PSVR.

@LFace Same as you - old quake 3 player, but prefer console gaming now. Honestly, your best alternative is Overwatch - the closest thing that captures the thrill and feel of Q3 with a more accomodating touch for those of us who no longer have the time for PCFPSes.

There is also Doom(2016)'s multiplayer, that has a q3 feel.

Atlus isn't keen on Persona 5 streaming

Ranger101

@KingFunkIII You're not too old.

Haven't you ever had experiences that you would like to see how other people react to or handle?

That's what a large part of watching other people play games about. We used to do it as kids with our friends and siblings, and now, the internet makes this easy and safe to do with strangers too.

And sometimes, you also get to watch a level of skill demonstrated in a game you're interested in, that you don't have the time to achieve yourself.

Sometimes you watch a stream to get an understanding of a game that a review can't give you. I've purchased many games I had no intention of purchasing until I saw playthroughs of them. My time is now limited as an over-30's person, and I use playthroughs and streams as a means of reviewing a game without splashing the cash or wasting my time.

Watch Dogs 2 parodies Trump, Martin Shkreli, Kinect

Ranger101

2 years ago

This is going to get buried under all the Hilary/Trump stuff - but you're wrong about Martin Shkreli.

He raised the price of a drug (only in the USA) for insurance companies only. He made it a practiced policy to give the drug away for free to private individuals who did not have insurance or could not afford the co-pay on their insurance for this drug. He did this because he reinvested the money into coming up with a better drug than was available - with the insurance companies funding it.

Yes, that kind of practice would eventually mean insurance premiums going up - but it would also mean more effective drugs with less side-effects, for un-common conditions that are going ignored.

Yes, he is still a twat in every other way, but his intentions in that circumstance were actually more on the noble side.

TL;DR: Martin Shkreli bought a bad drug to pump money out of insurance companies to pay for research into a better drug for the same condition. Gave current drug away for free for people who needed it.

Bad Eurogamer, poor journalism in this case.

Developer says Activision had Valve pull its game from Steam over allegedly stolen Call of Duty guns

Ranger101

2 years ago

Hmm, Activision might've filed a DMCA because they actually used and modified the actual 3D mesh from the CoD games - in which case DMCA is the correct process, as their files have been pirated.

An analogy to this would be if this game remixed a theme from CoD, by taking the mp3, and splicing it up and mixing it. Again, a DMCA is the correct response (if you believe in the legitimacy of DMCAs).

@arcam "It's not really any of our business."

I don't think that's an accurate statement, given the public interest in people like Jimmy Saville, Bill Cosby, Gary Glitter et al - who's morally outrageous personal lives did not factor into the material they produced.

And yet there was/is massive public interest and outrage at their content after their views and actions were revealed. Despite it not being the subject of their content.

@Mr_Writer85 If a game was developed by someone who supports extremely morally objectable material, and has stated those personal opinions outside of an educational thesis, on social media, would you not want to know?

Just to reiterate for anyone who thinks it's about the Educational Thesis - it's not about the Educational Thesis. There are direct statements on twitter. These keep getting deleted here though.

@riceNpea It's impossible to have a conversation here with uninformed mods deleted any reference to particular phrases or words in fear of libel.

I apologise at casting any outrage on you, I'm more outraged at Eurogamer for choosing to represent this person in a particular manner, when there are publically published material, including her tweets, by this very person that are contrary to how she is being represented.

I'm done, it's impossible to accurately discuss this without discussing her publically published material.

EA apologises for giving Muslim fighter a Christian victory gesture in UFC 2

@mega-gazz and anyone else.

If it helps, substitute the word 'Muslim' with Jewish or Atheist. His complaint about misrepresentation still stands. EA's apology for misrepresenting him still stands. This article still works.

I don't know why you are looking for ulterior motives. A person has been misrepresented in a medium that makes money off their likeness and representation, and they have asked for that to be corrected in order to maintain their public likeness and representation that makes said money.

It's not difficult, you're just tripping over yourselves because Muslim is now a loaded word.
