Breath of the Wild shows Nintendo is learning from PC games

smenj

1 year ago

The kind of thing you're on about is something I've always thought the MGS series did well - or at the very least from MGS2 onwards. If you thought of something you could do, and it made logical sense that it should work, then it more than likely did.

Take, for example, MGS3's survival system. You have to eat food to keep your stamina up, and you can catch animals to get food. So far so normal. But what if you catch something alive? Can you let it go afterwards? Yes you can. What if you let, say, a snake loose near a guy? As you'd expect, he goes "Holy crap, a snake!" and runs off. Or you can chuck it at him, and it'll attack him, either taking him out or causing a massive distraction at least. There's plenty more, like the fact that if you destroy the enemy's food storage, everyone in later areas will be hungry, meaning you can leave poisonous or rotten food around, which they're then tempted into eating.

It's all stuff which tempts you into messing with the mechanics as much as you can just to see what's possible. I'd love it if more games really did their best to include this kind of thing.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild already up and running on PC

smenj

1 year ago

But like Dolphin, or any other emulator, CEMU runs pirated copies of games. While the success of getting Zelda (sort of) working on PC so quickly is worthy of note, it begs the question: would those who will download and play it have bought a Switch or GameCube copy of the game legitimately instead?

After all, a year subscription to CEMU's Patreon at its average donation level is enough to just buy the game.
I find this a rather odd thing to say. You're acting as if people downloading and playing the game and those who would legitimately buy the game are mutually exclusive groups. I'm sure there's plenty of people who'd love to play the game but aren't willing to spend a whole bunch of money on a Wii U or Switch to do so. Who's to say they can't just buy a Wii U copy and then emulate it on their PC?

It's all well and good to say that they could've bought the game instead of donating to the emulator, but that doesn't consider the cost of the console to play it on. Or, indeed, the fact that you can do both if you want.

Eurogamer reader's top 50 games of 2016 voting

smenj

1 year ago

Skimming the list, it looks as though you're missing Steins;Gate 0. And, as has been mentioned, Trails of Cold Steel 2.

Not sure I'll be voting since most of the games I've been playing this year are ones I've been catching up on from years earlier! Steins;Gate 0, Cold Steel 2, Rise of the Tomb Raider and Zero Time Dilemma would make the list (despite ZTD being a bit of a disappointment compared to the previous games in the series). Struggling to think of a fifth one from this year to finish the list, mind! I've got Root Double and FE: Fates, but I'm yet to start either.

Pokémon Go's Nearby feature live now in the UK

smenj

1 year ago

I don't even live in the middle of nowhere or anything close to it, but thanks to the fact that my nearest stop is a ten minute walk away, and the next-nearest is about a mile or two away, no pokestops show up on my tracker at all, and since the radius for other things to show up on the 'Nearby' list has been massively reduced, all I can see is whatever happens to spawn literally across the road.

I have no idea why this new tracker isn't an additional mode you can activate or something. As it is now, the update has done nothing but make the app worse for everyone who doesn't live in a city. Very silly.

@CloudXIV Fair. I find it especially weird, since most games (well, at least a few years ago) don't even take much advantage of the hyperthreading on i7s anyway.

Maybe I'm just less up on my PC components knowledge than usual, but an i7 in the recommended bit seems a little odd, especially paired with a 960, since usually an i5's enough. I guess the game's a bit CPU-heavy.

It would've been one thing to see side-by-side videos comparing stuff and so on, but as it is we're getting 4K videos being shown to an audience which will be almost entirely watching in 1080p, and that's only if they're watching fullscreen. It all seems a touch pointless.

The original Steins:Gate premiered way back in 2009 on Xbox 360, but only in Japan. It didn't make its European debut until June 2015 on Vita and PS3.
There's an official English PC version too, by the way, which came out in 2014. Wikipedia says North America only, but you could buy it worldwide.
