Legendary cover artist Bob Wakelin passes away

kesouk

I most confess, I never knew all these amazing covers came from one man. In the 80s the artwork was super important, as it showed you what the abstract collection of pixels on the screen should look like in your head.

Wizball was the first game I ever purchased with my own money, and I still remember standing in John Menzies after Christmas and just being overwhelmed by all the amazing covers.

@obidanshinobi haha, 'Oh no, I can just walk around and kill a few trash mobs in an early story mission without takings cover (apart from when he does)'.

I don't think them tactics would work in strikes, the nightfall or raid.... You shouldn't share his videos, he's just trolling for clicks, and you're helping him. All his videos are this this desperate.

@PickleJuice Haha, I don't think I've ever seen a game where 'no one dies'. Your insult is lost anyway, I already admitted I'm a noobie. Just said I'm having fun with a new game I bought.


If you always Super Jump, the match is almost over, and the base still needs inking then that's doing it wrong.

I picked up Splatoon 2 a few days ago after being initially hesitant, as I don't really like competitive online games.

I'm absolutely loving it. The fact that killing the opposition isn't the primary focus, and that even with my potato aim I can help my team by checking the map and strategically inking unguarded areas.

And now I've played it for a few days, I'm actually starting to improve! I've found a weapon that suits my play style, and I've read up on play tips (don't ink the base, make a beeline for the centre!). I'm almost always top 2 on my team and yesterday went from 24-26 W/L to 30/20, and got my weapon to 'super fresh'.

It's great to see Nintendo doing well again, E3 would have been rather depressing this year without them.

Having been away from Nintendo for years, one of the things I love about the Switch is the lack of trophies.

It's quite liberating just being left alone to play a game how you want, rather then following good/bad paths, not being detected etc just to unlock a pointless achievement.

Developer admits "we screwed it" after game website exposes review blacklist threat

kesouk

1 year ago

I can imagine releasing a game on major platforms as an indie can be very intimidating.

I've released a few small games on indie platforms in the past, including a game called Picbox on XBLIG and PlayStation Mobile.

Picbox was a nonogram puzzle game (like Nintendos Picross). Whilst it was widely well received, I did receive some shitty feed back from people comparing it to Nintendos games.

What they didn't seem to take into account is that my game was made by just me, a full time postman who only made the game as a labour of love. I offered 120 puzzles for $0.99. If the platform holders would have allowed me to release it for free I would have.

This vocal Minority have put me off working on anything else.

I love video games, but the community and websites associated with it can be a very scary place for an indie.

Nintendo Switch Treehouse Live to follow reveal event

kesouk

1 year ago

I'm really looking forward to this. The Switch really looks like a return to form for Nintendo.

The Wii U is the first Nintendo console I haven't bought. The original Wii left a bad taste in my mouth (lolz), so I gave it a miss. In the end it had some great looking games, but that thing never dropped in price, so I never purchased.

Here's hoping the rumours on Wii U ports turn out to be true.

i had a preorder for a PS4 Pro, but cancelled it after the HDMI/PSVR pass through issues came to light. Really glad I did now.

Destiny doesn't need in game matchmaking for raids (Kingsfall would be a bloody nightmare with a group of randoms who had never run it before).

What it could do with is an in game party finder, where you set up parameters like "Previous Clear", "minimum light level", "learning party", "experienced players only" etc, etc. Players join up, then off you go. MMOs have had this system for challenging content for years, and Destiny is crying out for it too.

Well screw the haters, me and my casual raid group finally killed Oryx on hard last night, finishing up our year two moments of triumph.

Destiny has honestly given me some of my favourite gaming moments over the last two years. I really hope that Destiny 2 can take the blueprint and run with it once they don't have to accommodate legacy systems.

Anyone got any recommendations on a good gaming TV for around 500? Not fussed about 4k, but not opposed to it either if its a better TV.

I've done so much reading about it my head spins. My biggest gripe of my current TV is that there's quite a bit of blurring when I move in a game, so I'm guessing that's a faster response time that's needed.

The Samsung 6 series look like safe bets, but people have mentioned that motion can be blurred on them.
