If I had to guess it's down to the price of games Vs kid's expenditure.

A lot of kids today (and back when I was one) can very rarely afford a 40 game. These days a AAA game at 40 itself is a rare sight. Much easier to watch it for free online.

It's also no coincidence that the top watched games online are actually F2P games. It's easier to watch a game when you understand how it plays. And the many kids who have free access to the likes of Fortnite can relate to that more so that the latest Battlefield.

Man discovers long-time Streamer-chat friend is a bellend in real life



During a meet up at a large PC Gaming festival, it emerged that a man has found his online buddy of more than 5 years to actually be a tosser.

Daniel Mills, from Warrington, attended the popular 'Insomnia' weekend event for his 21st birthday to hang out with his online pals for the first time and chiefly among them; Corey "exZENscior" Andrews.

"I thought it would be a nice change from hanging out with my actual mates" he said. "And with Zen, cracking-wise like he does, coming all the way from L.A. what could go wrong?"

"But 'Zen' just gets on everybody's tits. He just exchanges awkward silences with everyone and gives me sarcastic looks like he just made a joke then expects me to laugh. Also he wears his Turtle Bay headphones like it's regular clothes or something. He demands to be called MTE/Zen after a CSGO team that rejected him. He complains if he's on his feet for more than 30 mins. He called the Barman a griefer just for asking for ID. Sod this."

Daniel later expressed wishes for local friend Alan Bennett to be there to alleviate things a bit.

"To be honest I'm glad Daniel didn't invite me out for his birthday" Alan said. "He's a bit of a tosser in RL. I'm hanging out with "ArfurGr8-X" on Overwatch tonight anyways. He seems like a cool dude".

Konami can't find Kojima's thumbs-and-forefingers rectangle gesture



Games company Konami admitted today that they couldn't find the famous film-making gesture that is crucial to the development of critically acclaimed video games.

The gesture, made to imitate the frame of a movie screen, was apparently key to former Konami game director Hideo Kojima's developing technique.

"We've tried everything" new director Yota Tsutsumizaki said. "Cupping our hands and bending our remaining fingers. But that just makes a kind of cube. Putting all 4 of our fingers against the tips of each other and looking down through our palms so that the gaps make a kind of burger? No luck."

"You see, Kojima sat in his chair all day, all the time making this amazing shape. And when we presented him with the game we made while he did that, suddenly something happened and it was amazing."

When asked for his input, Kojima reportedly instead made a strange new gesture, solely involving his middle finger.

"Genius" Tsutsumizaki said.

Daniel Vavra is not historically accurate



Game creator Daniel Vavra is not historically accurate to our timeline, it has been confirmed.

Debates continue over whether or not his game 'Kingdom Come: Deliverance' is historically accurate due to its lack of persons of colour in 15th Century Bohemia. However this is just a footnote to the larger discovery that the game creator himself is is a relic from a bygone era. Archeologist Phil Murphy has more:

"A European excavation team discovered a slab of ice under what was ancient Bohemia dating back to the 15th Century. Encased within was a frozen man. After they thawed him using super-cool Demolition Man technology, they sent him out into the world. We later confirmed his identity with a DNA trace, but how he got into games development is anyone's guess."

The revelation has led to assurances that his new game is historically accurate since, I mean, he must know what he's talking about right??

"Actually.." Murphy continues, "we should've known about him all along. Given his far-right political idealism, traditionalist pro-gamergate thinking and allegations of racism, it kind of all makes sense now."

GTA 5 'ready' for a fight with Red Dead 2



Popular crime-sim GTA 5 is ready to "totally have" charts newcomer Red Dead Redemption 2 when it arrives in October.

While many had gotten used to it's presence, all eyes have been on GTA since it's return to the charts after it briefly escaped from them last November.

"Chart Track won't see it coming" GTA 5 said. "He doesn't even pay attention to half of what goes on. And when Mario Oddysey is drawing his attention away with physical sales that's when I'll bust Red Dead with a blunted Vive controller".

Warden ESRB stated "Violence between any of our inmates will not be tolerated! I will be watching them both regardless of whether of not Chart Track is looking."

GTA later said "It's all a ruse. Me, Mario Kart and COD are planning a massive escape. COD's on library duty so he can steal the computer cords for rope. Kart's laying bananas outside security to slow them down. When everyone is expecting a fight, we'll be escaping through the downloads chute... the one place no-one thinks to look."

For the first time, Evo won't have a Marvel game

SuperSoupy

2 months ago

@IronCladChicken They would love for Arms to be included (it was recently included in the EVO Japan event). But as far as wiiU Smash goes, it's the more current version so they'd much prefer people to use that than Melee I think. And with their current plans on porting WiiU games to Switch they're definitely not shying away from that console. With Mario Kart out now, and DK and Bayonetta 2 to come, they're very much committed to re-selling wiiU games that might have missed the audience first time round. I wouldn't be surprised if they announced a wiiU Smash port for the Switch.

That's not to say I wouldn't like a version of Melee on the Switch though. A graphically-updated version of that with online play and I'd buy a Switch tomorrow! But the fact that the FGC haven't taken to future Smash games as well since Melee (they get left behind but Melee is always a mainstay) could be interpreted as Nintendo not making a Smash game that's as good as Melee since it's release all those years ago.

I wonder if Nintendo are happy or embarrassed at Melee is still featuring heavily all these years later.

I get the feeling that if Evo had to choose just one Smash game it would be Melee over the Wii U version. It's almost like they're being made to include wii u smash.

In any case it'll be interesting to seeing how many numbers of people go in for DBFZ this year. It looks amazing.

Jon Burton to star in detective TV show with Hideo Kojima



In a recent interview, game studio founder Jon Burton revealed that he is to play the lead role in a new TV series. The venture is no surprise given his impressive resume of game and film production.

"It's called 'Jack Foley & The Synth-Man'" Burton said. "It's an 80's flavoured cop show set in Malibu where me and Kojima bust heads and solve mysteries. One of us is a Hawaiian-shirt wearing hard-case cop, the other a hustling musician with a knack for hiding in boxes and stuff. We're a right odd couple!"

"And Kojima's a diamond, mate. He's the Murtaugh to my Riggs. The Kato to my Green Hornet. Actually, the show is partly based on a true story where we met up after E3 and went on a bender round my neighbourhood looking to solve a crime. I don't remember if we actually did but the next morning there was a body so we must have!"

"We've even got a villain lined up; a madman obsessed with encasing Malibu in a giant box! We're getting Peter Molyneux to play him and his catchphrase is 'What's reeeaaallly inside the cube?'".

Netflix have reportedly signed for 3 seasons already.

Student who sold 4 SNES Mini's at inflated price thinks he's the Wolf Of Wall Street



A student who reportedly sold four SNES Mini's at 150 each likens himself to infamous American stockbroker Jordan Belfort.

Steven Bradley, 21, from Hull University, made the money before Nintendo addressed the stock shortage of the console. A GAME employee commented on Steven's initial purchases from them:

"I thought it was a bit weird when I asked if he wanted to insure them with our reward programme and he was just standing there, making sexual spanking gyrations like he was on the phone to me or something. But I was like, standing right there."

On the subsequent Ebay sales Mr. Bradley said "This is how it starts. Today, I'm ebaying SNES Mini's. Tomorrow, it's doing pills with hookers while flying my private jet to Luxembourg to grab my tax-dodge money before flying back to gut-punch Margot Robbie."

His student colleague Rachel Jones commented on his success saying "So he made 550 after ebay fees? So what? At the end of year 3 he's still coming out of uni 40000 in debt like the rest of us."

EA to bring back loot boxes while holding off on microtransactions to allow for the release of lucrative post-launch IAP's



Games publishing giant EA will bring back microtransations in Battlefront 2 while delaying the launch, DLC and IAP's of Anthem so that they can release microtransactions and a season pass for the new Battlefield, it has been confirmed.

EA Money Bags Mcgee, or Blake Jorgensen as his job title reads, said "to be honest mate it's a fucking juggling act. Between the loot crates we had to take out and the DLC we left in, the other 'other' premium skins in Anthem, the new Battlefield post-launch DLC and the delayed season pass launch for all 3 releases, I don't know how we're going to manage all of this. I suggested to our CEO Andrew Wilson that we just make a straight-up get-what-you-pay-for game. Anyway that's how I got this black eye."

Further details can be found on Dow Jones Newswire provided of course that you sign up to the paid subscription.

Mcgee later added "Actually, I think if we give Titanfall 3 a card-based monopoly, it might all even out".

PUBG, Fortnite Battle Royale and the question of how new genres form

SuperSoupy

3 months ago

To quote Mark Pincus of Zynga from a few years back:

"I don't fucking want innovation, you're not smarter than your competitor. Just copy what they do and do it until you get their numbers"

Can't speak for how new genres form, but when they do, the one game that kicks it off is usually a risk for the developer. New genres flourish however, because of that one game in a thousand that rolls the lucky dice and makes a million instantly. Happened with cutesy 3D platformers in the late 90s, FPSes later on, happened at the time of the above quote with Farmville, and then subsequently match-3 games, happened with Minecraft, briefly with Flappy Bird, and now again with PUBG.

Mafia 'respect' Atari Inc.



Italian mobsters running regular scams out of Brooklyn, New York's east-side have exclusively revealed their utter awe and admiration for Atari Inc.

Wiseguy Sonny Carmine stated "I thought shaking down some mook for protection money was a sweet deal by itself. That's when my brother Frankie turns me on to this games company. Says they got billions! And yet they're scamming regular mooks into funding their stuff!"

"What's more, any money these shmucks do give, don't even gotta be used making the game! Atari can use it to fund requests made to Todd Shallbetter on the day of his daughter's wedding! And any monetary return is a grey area. It's a good racket before you even get to in-game microtransactions!

When asked for clarity, Atari CEO Todd Shallbetter quoted:

"Our crowd-funding is totally above board. If any potential funders do have questions, we'll simply make them an offer they can't refuse".

Crazy interesting history Nintendo has!

A personal favourite point of mine was how they won the Tetris deal for the GameBoy; their competitor fell off a boat on the way to the meeting. (Well, that's the story, I like to think Yamauchi used his mafia connections to "take care of business"). And thus, Tetris made the Gameboy a global, multi-million making, decades-spanning success.

Everyone thinks videogame movies suck, but an honestly-made film about Nintendo's history would be well worth watching.

Street Fighter 5 Arcade Edition review

SuperSoupy

3 months ago

@Shahid646 You can unlock them ingame by building up Fight Money (the in-game currency). You get that by completing various modes. But chances are you can't build up enough FM to unlock all 12 characters.

Otherwise you can buy them individually with real money (about 5 each I think), or buy them via the previous character passes (about 11 for 6 characters, a better deal). Thing is, if you're spending 22 on 2 character passes on top of buying the base game, you may as well just buy the Arcade Edition disc and save some there.

If you are buying the base version though, and want to unlock some stuff for free, another commenter (Jynxa) recently just linked a handy guide for building up Fight Money: https://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/895976-street-fighter-v/76211569

@Shahid646 Hi! It's up to you...

Buy the base Street Fighter V to get just the older version of game with no extra DLC for about 12-15. If you do get this, you'll have to connect to the internet and download the Arcade Update for free (Arcade mode, other new modes, new balance tweaks, etc)

If you buy the new Street Fighter V Arcade Edition (about 30), that gets you the base game, plus 12 extra DLC characters plus DLC costumes, on top of the Arcade Update itself.

In short, they're both identical once updated. Only difference is one comes with a bunch of extra DLC codes.

@Riggers
I can't play as the extra 12 characters advertised on the box, because they're locked to my husband's profile, because it's classed as DLC as opposed to being a core component of the game DESPITE BEING ADVERTISED AS SUCH?
I love this game and I support it's business model, but even I think this is a dick move on Capcom's part. On one hand I get it: Sacrifices need to be made if it means fighting games can be marketed in the 21st century DLC age. The problem there is that it's also a couch-multiplayer game and they don't fall into that marketing bracket so easily. It's like shaving pieces off a jigsaw piece before forcing it into the puzzle.

Even if they have to make their theoretical jigsaw this way, which is ultimately fine, saying on the box that all pieces are included within is naughty.
