Resident Evil 7 is coming to Nintendo Switch - via the cloud

TheSensationalSean

3 days ago

This is ... different. It seems like a cool idea, but I know I wouldn't be happy if the game hadn't been made available physically.

Capcom should talk about the thinking behind this move - is it a pilot programme for a new distribution platform or is it the only way they could overcome the Switch's hardware limitations? Alas, we all know they'll remain tight-lipped about it.

I bought this in 2016 to support CD Projekt, but haven't started it. That's something I need to change very soon, since it sounds like a better experience than just about anything else in my backlog!

Leaks suggest Nintendo's Switch Pokémon RPG set in Kanto, starring Pikachu and Eevee

TheSensationalSean

I love the idea of a Yellow remake on Switch, with Eevee as a co-star. Really hope this is true!

Couldn't care less about Go compatibility, but I can see how it makes sense from Nintendo's perspective. Hopefully, it'll bring some mobile gamers onto Switch.

The death of an indie store

TheSensationalSean

3 weeks ago

I try to buy in bricks and mortar shops whenever I can, but I don't think there are any independent video game stores selling new games here in Ireland any more. There are some retro places (most notably The RAGE in Dublin), but they tend to be quite expensive. I buy from them when I can justify it to myself, since I'm concerned about the social element of the hobby.

Perhaps Stuart could start setting up a stall at conventions? It would require a bit of travel, but he could do quite well at those events - they seem to be bigger than ever.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is "climatic finale of Lara Croft's origin story"

I’d love for the series to do a time jump and focus on a much older Lara. Everyone likes old grizzled badass male heroes, and I think we’re at the stage where a progressive publisher could market a more seasoned female one.

I enjoyed this for weeks after it came out and will no doubt dip in occasionally. It seems like they’re adding cool stuff in each update.

To anyone who enjoyed the campaign, I’d strongly advise playing the Resurrection DLC chapters. They offer a much more satisfying ending than the base campaign.

Xbox Game Pass can help fund big budget single-player games, Microsoft says

TheSensationalSean

7 months ago

Plenty of gamers focus on single player games, so I'm not concerned about them going anywhere. Lots of us want to play on our terms, and multiplayer doesn't offer that the same way.

MS's failed single player offerings this generation were a result of poor marketing - Sony drummed up awareness of Horizon: Zero Dawn, Uncharted 4/Lost Legacy and Bloodborne.

The last sentence of this article is missing an "as" before Bloodborne.

Mass Effect Andromeda will let you save the quarians via a tie-in novel

TheSensationalSean

I think it's kinda cool that the story is being told in a novel, especially if the alternative was not getting it at all. It'll probably be a deeper experience than most DLC packs too.

Of course, this is coming from someone who got bored with a Andromeda and abandoned it. I'm sure I'll go back and finish it when BioWare revive the series again ... someday.
