Fans are finding clues pointing to a very different, earlier version of Dark Souls 3

SegaBlueSky

7 days ago

So many of these ideas sound amazing, what a shame they didn't make the final cut. Still feel a bit nonplussed about the final areas and DLC in DS3, just didn't have the impact I was hoping for, especially when compared to the original, and Bloodborne for that matter.

How Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice was made as an 'indie triple-A' game on a tight budget

SegaBlueSky

4 weeks ago

Hellblade is an exceptional game - for me the best thing was feeling like you were really in Senua's shoes the whole time. The ordeals she goes through are just so intense, and some parts of the game felt so immersive and affecting (even if they weren't the most complicated mechanics) as a result. Though I won't say much about which parts, to keep from spoiling the game for Xbox owners. Love reading about the making of this game and can't wait to see what Ninja Theory do next. Very talented bunch.

Argh...been trying to refrain from buying too many games this year and have managed to hold off getting Monster Hunter World so far. But this...this might be too good to wait for! Adored the original and The Last Guardian is one of my most treasured PS4 games, so I've just got to dive back in.

Glad to see the franchise returning but the shadow of Lionhead does make it somewhat of a bittersweet announcement. I loved the original Fable and bought a 360 just for Fable 2, but I really don't think it's going to be enough to convince me to get an Xbox One. Hope it's good though.

Final Fantasy 15 Royal Edition announced, PC version dated

SegaBlueSky

I enjoyed the game the first time around but the DLC and post-launch additions have really left a bad taste, especially with this latest add-on that isn't even part of the season pass. Might consider grabbing the extras if they're heavily reduced, I guess. Probably not though.

@cyberrb25 That's cool, I'm not expecting it to be similar exactly, but I've enjoyed a lot of Atlus games recently and have always been tempted to try a SMT game. Obviously I'm not going to put my pre-order in until I've done my homework on the game, though.

The past, present and future of Final Fantasy 15

SegaBlueSky

7 months ago

Still got incredibly mixed feelings about FFXV and this article doesn't really help the situation, if I'm honest. I loved parts of the game and the central group of playable characters, but I've never played a game that felt so incomplete before, and also where the NPCs feel so unimportant to the story. I appreciate them trying to rectify that post-release but it's too late now. I've got way more games to play and I can't see myself going back to finish the 'complete' edition by the time they've finished messing around with it. It's why I haven't bought the season pass so far too - I don't want a fractured, constantly-updated experience, where I have to suddenly try and feel invested in sudden changes to the middle-sections when I already know how it ends. A regular, non-MMO FF should be a finished game in my mind and I'm really not sure how I feel about the franchise going forward.

Splatoon is a multiplayer shooter for introverts and I love it

SegaBlueSky

7 months ago

I've been on the fence with Splatoon for ages and just haven't been able to make my mind up about whether I should get it, and I think it's because of that online play culture that I really just don't get on with at all. It's the same reason I've been unsure about Destiny 2 as well - loved the bits of the first game where I could get matched up with random people and the only form of communication that was needed was a dance emote every time you finished a mission. But I was only playing half the game that way, of course.

As for Splatoon, I tried out the beta but felt like I needed to give it more time or wait for a sale before I was convinced. Think i might just go for it now, though!

One year on, is No Man's Sky the game it should have been?

SegaBlueSky

9 months ago

Enjoyed reading this, but also feel the header could have been 'is No Man's Sky the game everyone thought it would be?'

From day one I've always said NMS was going to be a polarizing game. Wasn't helped by the catastrophic launch with mixed messages from just about every angle and a deliberately vague attitude from Hello Games. Not to mention the inexcusable lack of communication after the whole thing exploded.

But - at the same time - I've always enjoyed it for what it is, and in most ways I got exactly the game I was expecting. An almost meditative, exploration-based experience that channeled a very retro sci-fi aesthetic with an incredible soundtrack. I really do enjoy the game and I'm glad to see it growing, but I would never anticipate it to be the game that so many wanted and expected. Not entirely. It's always going to be a love it or hate it experience, and too much damage was done to 'fix' the public's perception of it.

I love the sound of this. Good on Ninja Theory for making a bold choice. If it was a 40+ hour open world game then I might put off, but for a 6-10 hour experience it's really not worth kicking up a fuss over, IMO.

Final Fantasy 14 Stormblood review

SegaBlueSky

10 months ago

@roostermoans Oh I'd be surprised if it happens, but I believe them when they say they're trying to make it happen. And haha, I wish. I've got the original on PS4 but never finished Heavensward as I just couldn't find the time, so I had to cancel my sub eventually. If you've got a job that lets you have two months paid holiday then I envy you! Plus then I'd only get addicted all over again and have extreme withdrawal symptoms when time inevitably runs out again.

But yeah, if it did come out on Switch, at least I could take it to work for lunch breaks. We'll see I guess.

@roostermoans Squeenix are apparently discussing it with both Nintendo and MS, so it's possible. It's still a long shot, but I'm not plucking the idea out of nowhere. Square Enix must at least think it's technically possible or they wouldn't bother, surely? http://uk.ign.com/articles/2017/06/05/final-fantasy-14-discussions-ongoing-for-nintendo-switch-and-xbox-one-versions

Episode Prompto is Final Fantasy 15 in a nutshell, for better and for worse

SegaBlueSky

10 months ago

Still can't quite make up my mind whether to go for the DLC packs. The gaps in the initial story were so jarring that in principle alone I really don't want to spend any more money on the game for storylines that should have been part of the main campaign. But on the other hand, I did really enjoy the game in parts and my desire for a more complete experience is pretty compelling.

In all honesty, I'm leaning towards a 'no' just because I've got so many other games to play now. FFXV had its chance - the time has passed and it was a very mixed experience.

Sega defends Sega Forever launch after fan outcry

SegaBlueSky

10 months ago

Would love this service to be good, and the way Mike talks about bringing Segagaga and Panzer Dragoon the service makes me much more optimistic. But there are problems at the moment and they need to fix it. They also really need to bring the service to consoles, ideally. It's early days but I'd agree it's been a bit of a mixed launch, for sure.

It's a very promising start, fingers crossed they can keep the momentum going. Gotta feel for 1-2-Switch though. 'Generating buzz' probably equates to 'well, it gets slated online an awful lot'. It's just such a niche game compared to something like Wii Sports - I bought a copy to play when I've got friends over and everyone enjoys it, but can totally see why many wouldn't bother.
