I don't accept the premise of the question

mintgreen

2 years ago

How often I am lead through games by the nose, seeing only what I am meant to, following a scarlet thread from A to B, and enjoying only the epiphanies that have been officially sanctioned.
Funny you should mention this, because there's many games now where I wish they'd follow this more, rather than give you pointless additional things that you can do and find, things that only serve to disrupt the flow of the story and game experience as a whole.

Remember this article?

Johnny Chiodini had a good point about collectibles ruining modern video games. I'm playing Resident Evil Revelations 2 on a second play through and that game would be SO much better without the 'pointing a flashlight/finger to find items' that forces you to look at every nook and cranny when all you want to do (and all you WOULD do if you actually existed in this game's world) is move forward towards your goal, only looking through draws/lockers/dead bodies for items (and crates if you must, but I wish we could move beyond that too). And it doesn't even stop there. No, there's rewards for looking EXTRA hard for added bonuses that get you points you can spend on skills. So you're encouraged to do things that disrupt the flow of the story and gameplay. Games like this are utterly worthless.

I like how they waited until 11pm UK time to release this update, like they really wanted to delay it further but risked getting called out on their promise to deliver on the 28th

Anyway it's pretty scandalous how the diabolical launch will be forgotten and that with this trickling of updates that should have been in the game day 1, Capcom will just be getting more media coverage

nintendo fans can be so dumb. It's OPTIONAL. Like setting it to easy or hard in any game.

And I like the idea, like a similar mode in Yoshi's Wooly World it allows those who are absolutely no good at games to have fun (like my 3 year old godson).

@Sacoglossa the Betas were invitation only. They could have released a final build for all who had taken part in past CPTs. Not a great option, but surely the least stupid one considering what this botched release has done to Capcom's and SF's image

Face-Off: Street Fighter 5

mintgreen

2 years ago

@Yautja_Warrior i didn't get it for online play so I don't even care about server issues. Apart from the one that means if you're playing e.g. survival mode and there's a problem with the server it kicks you out and you have to start over, never mind if you're 1 win away from 30 to complete normal level.

And if by 'a few missing features' you mean 'pretty much everything' then fine but I don't know how this is defensible, nor is 'every other game does this' an excuse. This is going to be a review of the game *as it is at launch*, not what is promised. THAT's why it's an avoid.

@marmaduke the review should have a big fat 'avoid' badge, that's all you really need to know. Check out the amazon reviews if you're up for a laugh.

On another note, instead of the 2 versions being pitched against each other, how about an article doing a face off against SF2 for single player content?

i wonder if they are not releasing 8 player lobbies & spectator mode at launch not because they can't, but because they don't want to... ?

I reckon they really want to make sure the net code and interaction between PC and PS4 players is nailed before they go all in like that.

@nothough the game has 'only' 16 characters. If they don't announce pre-launch that there are more coming, at regular intervals and ppl won't have to wait long before the first one is out, and not only that but you can get them all for free *just by playing the game*... can you not see ppl being annoyed and less interested in buying the game??

(c/w Splatoon. Barebones at launch, free major updates announced pre-launch, regular free content updates, interest in the game sustained post-launch)

Digital Foundry: Hands-on with the Resident Evil Zero HD Remaster

mintgreen

2 years ago

To hit the spec of a 16:9 presentation here, Capcom resorts to panning the camera up and down, dependent on character movement. It's a smart approach
it was a pretty terrible approach in the Remake remaster last year, incredibly badly implemented at times and I can't see it being any different here. The new control scheme was also dreadful. Don't know why anyone would have problems with the original 'tank' controls anyway, they were perfectly intuitive.
