The joy of Rime and the petrification of indie gaming

Quick error correction: Microsoft never signed any publishing deal for Rime and thus never "dropped" it. Not sure where that information came from, but it was incorrect. :)

The story of Net Yaroze, Sony's first indie push

nick_f

5 years ago

Ah, so many memories of buggering about with TIM tools, CLUTs, configuring SIOCONS and discovering hidden gems on the Net Yaroze website.

Indie dev is so much simpler these days in comparison.

Thanks for the memories, Eurogamer!

Score Multiplier effect also happens in Temple Run, so the longer you play the game the higher your scores get. This is not a new thing.

Flashback is already available on iOS. Unfortunately, it is not a very good conversion - IIRC, it is actually an emulated version of the original with a not-very-good touch sceen overlay.

D&D: Daggerdale leads XBLA chart

nick_f

7 years ago

Anyone who was disappointed with D&D Daggerdale should keep their eyes open for Crimson Alliance, coming this summer.

http://www.crimsonalliance.com/

The game debuted at E3 and got a lot of positive press. It's an action-focused dungeon crawler with fantastic combat, slick visuals and a lot of surprises.

Anyone with fond memories of JSW should definitely check out "LaserCat" on the Xbox LIVE Indie Games service. It's a loving tribute to the days of exploring bizarre 8-bit mazes driven by quirky imagination.

Tech Comparison: Crysis 2 PC

nick_f

7 years ago

Given the high piracy rates for the PC-exclusive original, who can blame Crytek for focusing on console? I'm sure EA was also pushing them heavily in that direction.The (legitimate) PC market is simply not big enough to support the kind of investment required to build a game like Crysis 2.PC owners should blame pirates for forcing Cryteks hand.

nick_f

My 3DS (pre-ordered from Amazon UK in January, within minutes of them opening pre-orders) is currently "out for delivery". I have to leave work at 3:15pm today so hopefully it will turn up. If not, kind of a bummer but at least it gives me something to look forward to.

Pilotwings (also ordered from Amazon) arrived this morning.

So, twice as many people would rather pretend to shoot other people in the head than run around a post-Apocalyptic landscape as a man-monkey? Sounds about right to me...

I also can't really complain as I didn't buy Enslaved... went for Castlevania instead.

Why I Hate… Resident Evil 4

nick_f

To be fair, after a brief revisit to the original Resident Evil and its sequel last year, they REALLY don't hold up as well as you might think. I'd rather play Resident Evil 5 again than the originals.

The screenshots certainly stand up against Uncharted., and I think the whole "Lara meets Lost" / survival thing will see a lot more sales than the more traditional like of Underworld.

OnLive MicroConsole dated, priced

nick_f

8 years ago

It's funny how people fail to recognise the future when it's staring right at them.

Digital Foundry are smart fellas, but when it comes to OnLive they have that unfortunate British mentality of fixating on why things can't be done.

OK, so it might not be OnLive, it might not be right now, but the broad concept of processing virtually everything in the cloud and delivering to a thin client (which could be practically anything) is where the mainstream industry is going to end up.

Why on earth would they want to announce it? As soon as they do, sites like Eurogamer will stop writing stories like this.

"a million downloads" does not equal "a million sales". And they are probably factoring in trailer downloads and other marketplace content (i.e. gamerpics, themes) into that.

Of course it's real... yet another Sony leak. when was the last time an official Sony reveal surprised anyone?

NowGamer probably spoke to some UK PR mate of theirs, hardly word from the top.

Presumably this is the PSP2 hardware, will be interesting to hear about pricing for this and the (presumed) non-phone version.

Castlevania: Harmony of Despair - first 15 mins

nick_f

What a pointless video, if you're going to show the first 15 minutes you should really make a point of demonstrating the 3 zoom options within the first couple of minutes.

Also, if you die halfway through maybe you should just start again?

Not that I want to sound ungrateful, like.

Hydro Thunder Hurricane - first 15 minutes

nick_f

I think HTH is vastly under-rated...

I don't get complaints about the graphics in this game... it looks great.

The game seems to run at a rock solid 30fps. OK, so it would be nice to have 60 but I honestly haven't really noticed any slowdown yet (with most tracks unlocked).

I love the mid-90's cheese.

The Ring mode is a really nice way of learning the tracks.

Gauntlet is less interesting, and I haven't even tried multiplayer yet.

I've now spent more time with this game than I did with Limbo.
