Not entirely unexpected this. The packs are horribly overpriced. Luckily the biggest toyshop in Holland is regularly selling them at half price, which is a much fairer price. Me and my oldest son have been spending quite some money this way :)

@CalamityJames - It really is worth the upgrade. On the original I never used 3D (because, you know), now I have it on all the time. The slightly larger screen is nice too (I found the XL to be too big for my liking).

This game has a strange pull on me like Dark Souls had: it sounds interesting but I'm not 100% sure I'll like it. With Dark Souls I took the plunge and have clocked in over 100 hours so far.

These enthusiastic articles (great read BTW!) and comments aren't helping my resolve to not buy this (yet) ;)

Digital Foundry vs. 4K gaming

Red_Bool

Let's first have the home consoles run games at native 1080p@60Hz ok. I really couldn't care less about anything higher than that, which is just a total waste of memory and bandwidth.
@TheRealBadabing - indeed: you will only notice a difference when you're really close to the screen, which you typically aren't in a livingroom.

Oliver twins announce Dizzy Returns Kickstarter two decades after the last original Dizzy game

Red_Bool

5 years ago

@darkmorgado - Well, think about it: How many people do you need to create a Dizzy game for iOS? I would say a couple of graphics artists, a game designer and a programmer (maybe two). Only a slight step up from the couple of people that made the originals.

It's not like they're creating a huge game here. That was actually the point I was trying to make.

Am I the only one wondering why on earth they would need £350,000 (!) to make a Dizzy game??? I mean, how much did it cost to make the originals?

That said, still looking forward to a £350,000 Dizzy game ;)

Doh! Totally missed jasondonervan's comment....

Skylanders Giants review

Red_Bool

6 years ago

@Ironlungs76 - My kids (5 & 8) bought this (after selling some of their toys). The availability of the figures isn't as bad as it was with the 1st version (at least here in Holland). However half of the figures are not available directly at launch. The other half will come later, much to my kids dismay as they had already chosen which ones to get (and guess what). In the end we now have at least one of each type, plus 2 giants. This should be enough to keep them busy to complete both games :)
The original figures keep all their coins/level/hats/etc. btw.
Also, the lightcore figures don't appear to have any special use (like opening areas), which I was expecting.
Anyway, the kids (and their friends) are loving this just as much as the 1st version, so you can't really go wrong.

Mature Star Wars game 1313 announced

There's quite some mentioning of the word "epic".
Combined with Unreal Engine -> Gears of Star Wars?

On a side-note: what's the deal with all these games being sold as "mature" all of a sudden? It's not like that will make the game be any better. And I like my games to be "fun" - for me Star Wars is (was) all about adventure, not "mature" whatever.

/still interested to see how this will turn out
