Has anyone said anything about Watch Dogs 3 yet? I reckon it will be that.

I'm quite looking forward to The Division 2,as I really liked the first one. I'm also kind of interested in the Crew 2, the premise sounds exciting. Hoping I'll get in to the beta next month.

Oh... I was really looking forward to this. With Dark Souls on Switch pushed back and now this, May has really turned into a terrible month.

The Solo movie better be good.

They should force him to pay 29,987 gold and stick his avatar in The Stockades for the same length of time as well.

The death of an indie store

ZuluHero

2 weeks ago

Sad times.

Great article charting the rise and fall of the indie sellers. I miss all my local stores, all succumbed to the switch in buying habits.

I got a bit misty-eyed seeing the pictures of all the N64 game boxes on the shelves, really brought me back to my student days where I'd peruse the shelves of a local shop for new releases that I'd inevitably buy. I'd even become friends with the owners who'd go out of their way to get stuff in for you or to help you out, something lost to the big-business models, and now has become entirely faceless.

I wish all the best to the owner in the next phase of his business.

Can't believe no-one has commented on this awesome game. Really can't wait for the Switch version, so much so that I stopped playing the PC version (its really great that they give such large content updates for free).

Can you discover games for yourself in the algorithmic age?

@Mr.Spo I came to the saturn late, having a ps1 at the time, but I still remember the same feeling coming across Panzer Dragoon Saga. Of course, I'd heard of this mythical game, but to actually find it somewhere, due to its limited print run, was just magic. Only cost £29.99 as well. I was amazed to sell it on for £230 about 15 years later :)

Its funny how you remember the small details on your rare finds.

NHS places mental health adverts in Football Manager 2018

ZuluHero

1 month ago

I think that's really positive.

Gaming reaches such a wide audience, and there does seem to be a subset of gamers that suffer from such conditions who might feel isolated and are vulnerable. Rather than exploit them with consumerism this is a step in the right direction that hopefully will help people deal with the problem and not ignore it.

Good on the NHS for taking the initiative too.

Fortnite teases guided missiles and Easter event, both arriving "soon"

Got to admit that I'm actually enjoying it, for a F2P game it does a lot of things right. Seemed to be heading in the wrong direction at the start but it's actually been pulled back. Yeah there are some balance issues, but it's surprisingly fun and judging from how popular its becoming, particularly with the minecraft crowd, its certainly going from strength to strength.

Shame that you can't create your own character and for a game that has such beautiful environments that the characters look so ugly.

I guess congratulations are in order. As others have said hope you maintain focus and don't get too diluted by voices from across the pond (there is after all alot of water in between) but it all sounds exciting and I'm not going anywhere. Like a marriage, for better or worse...

Looking forward to seeing everything happen, including the website roll out and portable view! :)

I guess its handy, but the app is perfectly adequate for me, and lets me link to the store seamlessly to make purchases and download them remotely to my ps4. But like I said, I don't really use the social aspect as much :)

Detroit: Become Human under fire for controversial domestic abuse scene

ZuluHero

6 months ago

Swing and a miss. Sadly happening far too frequently these days. There were some very difficult scenes in Heavy Rain and Beyond, but Quantic handled those with the gravitas they deserved. Watching that video, it seems their latest game certainly doesn't trivialise that issue.

It makes for uncomfortable viewing, but as others have said, there is no reason why games can't be used as a platform for highlighting these issues. If anything it puts people in more a uncomfortable position of not only witnessing it but actually being able to stop it, which goes beyond the adverts we see on TV.

Another example of the right intention focused on the wrong thing.
