Former Xbone exclusive D4 is coming to PC pretty soon and the port is supposed to be pretty good this time around, compared to Deadly Premonition. Do go and check it out.

>Why did the graphics change?

>"If you're looking at the development process," Iwinski begins, "we do a certain build for a tradeshow and you pack it, it works, it looks amazing. And you are extremely far away from completing the game. Then you put it in the open-world, regardless of the platform, and it's like 'oh shit, it doesn't really work'. We've already showed it, now we have to make it work. And then we try to make it work on a huge scale. This is the nature of games development."

>It was captured PC footage, not pre-rendered, Badowski confirms, but a lot had to change. "I cannot argue - if people see changes, we cannot argue," Adam Badowski says, "but there are complex technical reasons behind it.

One common criticism of a lot of recent Kickstarter successes is that they’re trading on nostalgia, using past success to make money. Do you feel Bloodstained is relying on Symphony of the Night in this way? Is it a concern to balance a sense of familiarity and nostalgia with fresh, brand new material?

"That’s a tough one. The question is, if that’s not what backers want from me, what is? Personally, I think they genuinely want to relive the feelings they had when playing those classic games in the past – maybe not nostalgia so much as a simple desire to enjoy solid, tried-and-true gameplay.

At the same time, I don’t think they’re asking for a mindless recreation of older experiences. They may want the basic foundation, but with a fresh spin to it – a balance of what’s made them feel good in the past and what’s new and exciting. Unfortunately, that’s the kind of mix that turns a publisher off. So Kickstarter was the perfect chance for me to stay directly connected with backers and seek the best way to build out this game."

Yes, but much like Wolfenstien it flies under the bethesda banner and people doubted if it was even possible to resurrect correctly in the modern era, further more great lengths have been taken to tie the games together.

For instance, one of the selling point on Wolfenstien was a not released trailer for DOOM...that still isn't released, which while shitty marketing; says good things about the time being taken for development.

No, he’s implying that most people saw right through Hatred’s try-hard edgy “controversial for the sake of it” bullshit not long after that first trailer dropped. Sure, some people got really pissed the fuck off, but after a few days/weeks, they forgot all about the game because it was poised to be exactly what it turned out to be: a shallow, worthless shooter that tried to capitalize on some faux controversy about it being “controversial” to sell a few more copies than it probably would’ve sold without getting all that press a few months back.

The only reason I even brought the game up was because its failure (and its lack of depth in both gameplay and writing) had been all but a foregone conclusion and I enjoy a bit of schadenfreude every now and then. The people behind the game thought they had The Next Big Evil Thing, but it’s no better (in every sense) than fuckin’ Doom—and I mean the original game.

For about a week, sure. A few thinkpieces here, a few hot takes there, and then everyone forgot that shit existed until they put out a second trailer not too long ago. Then everyone said "meh" until the game's release date cropped up. The game's only popping up back in the EVIL EVIL GAMING NEWS sites, if they're even covering it, because some people want to know if it was worthy of that little week or so of controversy it caused. The advance reviews I’ve seen and the scuttlebutt I’ve heard says no, it’s not worth a single damn in any way.

If the game had actually been controversial beyond the surface, it wouldn't have disappeared out of the public spotlight as quickly as it did. I mean, in the time that's passed between all those thinkpieces/hot takes about the first trailer and now, how many sites have appeared to give a ton of fucks about the game?

Nothing points to the game being any good or worthy of the "controversy" label. Even if people gave it more attention than it deserved a few months back, it's not getting all that much attention now. Go whine about the evil vidyagaem journalists and their lack of ethics and morals and intelligence on a site that has fucks to give about all that bullshit.

I see Hatred going the way almost all the games of its trashy ilk have gone. It will be forgotten in a month, but all the teenage boys who played it will think back on it fondly when they're in their mid-twenties, like: "Remember how cool that game was?

Won't name names but to be specific a Facebook friend accused me of buying into GG propaganda for getting mad over a really dumb article on Nintendo (it blew over quickly but still), and while the bigotry accusation wasn't made at me I've seen it come from one of my Tumblr follows who I recognize as an occasional tripfag who loves Jojo on /vg/ and /a/.

Not bad. I know corporate decisions can send people off to review games they don't care about, and this article really goes into how much everyone else seems to be enjoying the game. I'm pretty sure if I was interested in Rock Band I would glad to see even someone disinterested in the franchise could see some interesting improvements to this installment, contrasting it with earlier entries to show how it shifted focus from strict adherence to a set pattern to a more party-like, relaxed system.

>Chris Scullion's conclusion
So he's unemployed and thus not under pressure to review games he doesn't care about, but is complaining about someone who is getting paid because they didn't change decisions that weren't up to them in the first place?

>Rock Band 4 is also not about just pressing buttons. Various instruments, including vocals, have been given carte blanche to express themselves in ways that are individual to the player, and be rewarded for their personal skill. It's not just about sticking to the colors and the lines. It's about adding your own flavor to the song, through drum-riffs and vocal meanderings.
>Rock Band 4, as Harmonix keeps telling us, is not so much about creating a game in which there are scores and channels and targets and RPGish upgrade paths (though they are all certainly present) but in creating a really fun experience in which people get to sing, guitar and drum their fave tunes their way and generally have a good laugh and not be booed off stage by AI douchebags. So far as I can tell, the company is making a good fist of this endeavor.
>At the end of each song, the game offers up suggestions for the next track, which band-members can vote on. The AI crowd shouts out requests. This keeps the fantasy alive, avoids the tedium of back-tracking through menus, helps iron out the social difficulty of choosing the next song. This seems to me to be part of a convincingly earnest attempt by the people at Harmonix to do the thing they are best at, which is making music games that actually make people feel good, that allow people to have a good time.
>There are new guitars and drums being made by Mad Catz (no keyboard) but you can use your old Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 wireless contraptions on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions, which are due out later this year. Exported songs from those old games can also be uploaded.

Therefore it should just stick to Objective reviews, right? Listing nothing but features without the personal opinions of the "critic" so people know whether to preorder, buy or rent.

Its that line of thinking... "Its an industry that has media, therefore that media will only ever serve the industry." that defeatist thinking that has me wondering if you've ever been exposed to any other kind of media in your life. Not you, personally, but the gaming media consuming entity.
Football's a huge fucking worldwide industry. And yet the football media has done nothing but revel and jubilate and the dissolving of FIFA. Hollywood's a big fuckin' industry too. An yet film critics and fans know that much more about what actual Movie reporting is.

Games fans? Its okay to accept something you like's faults, but that's done with the ultimate purpose of improving it. People have been mistaking growing pains for The Way Its Always Been and considered it a hill to die on. Games have problems, Games media has problems. Its taking three or four steps back to respond to anyone pointing them out with the internet equivalent of "If you don't love America, move to Canada."

Same here. They're Polish. Nonwhite people make up less than 0.1% of the population in Poland. Chances are most of the staff simply didn't even consider the possibility of nonwhite people in their world because they've never even met one in person, the same way Chinese media doesn't have nonchinese characters. Maybe nonwhite people exist elsewhere but it simply happens in a place/time where they don't, or the lack of them is canon in the books. Diversity in games is important but The Witcher 3 is not the kind of game to be surprised at for the lack of it, nor would Jade Empire be for its lack of black people (which is why their rebuttal of the "historical basis" justification in fantasy games with clear theming is a bad one).

It reminds me of this ad campaign in Italy for LGBT tolerance that was excoriated for being almost all white people, until someone from Italy pointed out the race of the people in the pictures is an extremely stupid thing to get fixated on considering unlike the US, white people are the vast majority of the Italian population and homophobia is a much more serious social issue there, and these people are drawing attention away from an important message for the sake of feeling self-righteous.

That aside The Witcher 3 actually has a lot to say about all kind of social ills, The Bloody Baron and everything related to him and his family is this multifaceted, brilliant look at all kind of horrible shit (the concept of toxic masculinity is even in there!). And then you move on to all the really fan-fucking-tastic characters, many of them women, the game features.

Your last statement reminds me of people who accuse GRRM of being misogynist because he chose to portray the world ASOIAF takes place in as having misogynist values, even though it's painfully obvious the audience isn't supposed to agree. Not that the series can't be criticized for other reasons, like exploiting violence against women for shock value, but you might as well accuse GRRM of being homophobic just because Westeros is. Also reminds me of the stunning amount of people who seriously believe Joss Whedon is a frothing misogynist because he made Loki (a bad guy!) call Black Widow (his favorite character) an outdated form of the c-word.

>Scores are dumb anyway, and so is people continuing to get mad about them.
See, thats the thing. People keep scoring these things in a 10.0 system when there's literally no difference from an 8.8 and an 8.7. Say what you will about the guy, but Adam Sessler had it right.
5 Stars: Must Buy
4 Stars: Quality Game.
3 Stars: Worth Renting/Best Enjoyed by Fans
2 Stars: Not Worth It
1: WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK AFTER THESE MESSAGES.

Hell, even a Thumbs Up/Down system works.

Having a percentage or 10.0 system makes some sense, if you have ten or twenty reviewers and add their scores together. That is to say, it only makes sense for something like Metacritic, because I'm pretty sure no one magazine/review site is paying twenty or even ten reviewers for one article.

I think it works when its something like Famitsu, yeah. When its collectivized within a small number of critics. But thats at a 10 point scale.
10.0 is essentially 100 - absolutely pointless if you're anything but RT or Metacritic.

SR2 has the best storyline and Shaundi. SR3 improves on the gameplay a lot but the story and characterizations are stupid, and the humor is a little "dildos lolsorandumbxD". SR4 stays on the silly side but is a much better experience despite it. I'd say SR4 is better to get than SR3.

I'm forced to believe that the only reason this is being released is because it was already heavily in the pipeline when the first Sonic Boom games bo(o)mbed horribly. SEGA decided it would lose more money cancelling the project, so they let it wrap up and will release it to parents naive about video games who will buy it for their five-year-old thinking "Oh hey he loves blue Mickey!"

He's clearly a Tyrant, but he teleports, soaks up every type of bullet like a shamwow and his most common attack is an AOE with a massive range that seems to do near randomized damage (right next to him you can take next to none sometimes; 5 miles away? almost dead). Not to mention the reaction time you have to have when he illusion clones himself to attack tends to be pretty short as he starts raking up damage. It is like fighting a Bleach character.

The second phase of him after he does the side by side thing has no real pattern I've seen. Yes there are items to pick up in the area and a box to change weapons, but by the time you get to any of them, he has probably teleported to you and hit you. Oh and also because it takes so much damage to knock him out of his illusion wind up attack (that you can't run from as described earlier) you have to hit him SQUARE IN THE HEART head on. To the side? Slightly off? You're fucked unless you have the double shot mod on your shotgun which you won't because you need that slot for other things like damage, capacity, etc.

This all isn't so bad, but it takes a good 10 minutes to get to his third phase where he goes full rage and boy oh boy does he have tons of armor. Things rarely seem to stop, stagger, or stun him. He eats magnum bullets like candy, Shotguns won't break him from his charge, and you may as well piss in the wind if you use a pistol or machine gun.

So by the time you lose, and you will, you're out at least 15 minutes before you have to start the fight over again This is compounded because every time I have to do this I have to swap out my useless pistol for my magnum.

Oh and to get to that part? You're in a scuba diving level with monsters that will auto kill you. The second you start this part you swim down a hall, see an opening and say "Hey I'll go this way an-" instantly killed. "Wow that's some cheap bullshit" you say and just wait a little bit before going in, But then is swims back around the corner and eats you. So you load up again and the game reminds you you have stun grenades, only they take time to explode and have shit range and sometimes they don't work. More sync kills than playing ME3's multiplayer on Banshee Sprees with a bad connection.

So that bundle of fun comes after a giant boss monster fight... that has a part two that is 7 minutes of the easiest and most repetitive on rails shooter of all time. The good news is for once the helicopter pilot manages to survive. Way to beat the spread buddy. This wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't so painfully long and bland.


All the good will the game built up, and I REALLY enjoyed it, is pissed away in the last few segments.

The new FNAF4 teaser image went live apparently just minutes ago. Work the contrast/brightness on it, and you get a message in the lower-right corner: "PROPERTY OF FR" [lots of space here] "ER"

The initial feeling on the FNAF subreddit believes the message in full is "PROPERTY OF FREDBEAR'S FAMILY DINER", aka the original diner that was bought out and turned into Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria.

Also: more razor teeth in the floor reflection near the hat.

I agree with some things. But I don't like the redesign. Sonic, not being cocky anymore and being vulnerable, goes against what makes the character likable in the first place. You might say "Oh, he was only likable because it was the 90's" but Sonic's cocky attitude is half his appeal even today. Given the cartoons and comics, it still resonates with kids, and though a lot of adult fans find his "90s attitude" a point of mockery, it still makes Sonic stand out in the crowd and be a likable character. That outdated 90s attitude becomes HUMOROUS, not annoying. So taking it away, only to make him look like every puzzle platformer protagonist we've seen in the last 5 years, is just boring.

Nix the backpack too. I do agree that lives are outdated and rings should instead be some sort of currency, but Sonic doesn't strike me as the type of character to always be prepared. He's clever and street-smart, but at the same time he's reckless. If he gets into trouble, he's going to use what's around him to his advantage, not what he's carrying. It's the difference between Spider-Man and Batman.

If I were to change, in any way I wanted, the Sonic franchise, I'd go and switch the name to Robotnik and His Foes. He's the antagonist, but really the main character. The main protagonists are driven by wanting to stop him, and in every title he's the life of the party. Rather than switching to a more organic style, and I'd move the other way and go for a very clean, almost toy-like style that puts emphasis on the modern, technological Sonic has to explore to reach Eggman. Kind of a Bomberman or Advance Wars inspired look, almost, but mostly just a lot more geometric shapes. Maybe levels laid out in something like 3DML instead of freeform meshes, to get the kind of grid-based limitations of the side-scrollers.

It's a world of humans and human culture, so the story would mostly be lot of Eggman making deals with various human groups to get a stronger foothold and get fresh resources to expand him empire, with Sonic and other heroes chasing after to throw a wrench in it. Each level would basically be it's own little self contained adventure for the most part, aside from hints and the upcoming superweapon that Eggman is cooking up somewhere. Sonic can be afraid at times, but acting cocky like he normally does sounds like an amusing way for him to deal with that fear, and appear as the hero other forest critters expect him to be.

I've actually been playing through SMB2J lately and I love it. I can't get past world 8 though, which is the first world in the game I think actually has some bs level design (some of the hammer bros. locations create situations where you just need to get lucky). Up until now though I'd say the game has been tough but fair.

I kind of like the ROM hack vibe the game has, it sort of feels like the game's world is breaking apart the further you go in and that feeling works well with the intense difficulty.

I might have had a different experience than you though because I've been using save states (never to make the game easier though, I only use them between levels so I can do other stuff and come back to the game later). So I've been playing the game in parts and haven't had to start over every time I leave. I don't know if I could beat the game in one sitting. Hell, I can't even beat it now.

To anyone who hasn't played the game and wants to give it a try, I recommend the original over the Mario Allstars remake. The physics between the two are different and IMO the original's make the game way more fun. The only downside is that unlocking worlds A-D in the original is bullshit (you have to beat the game 8 times, while in Allstars you must only get past world 9 to unlock them.) Also, game overs in the original mean you must start the world over while in Allstars you just restart the level. I don't mind that but some people might.

All said and done it's the most fun I've had with Mario in a while. I certainly like it more than the New SMB games.

With the patch, the only thing the original has over it is the graphics (more stylish look, and the graphic designers for World 9 in SMAS apparently didn't get the joke).

At this point, I think companies outsource their PC port because it gives them plausible deniability. "Sorry, folks, a third party fucked that up. If we'd been able to, we absolutely would have delivered a game with no bugs at all!"

It's a bad idea to pre-order any PC game now, unless the game is made only for PC.

I don't think pre-ordering is inherently bad. For instance, I've never regretted pre-ordering a Nintendo product, and I doubt I will anytime soon. You can also get some nice, physical swag. Plus, most stores you pre-order from will let you put down only $5 and give you a window to pay for and pick it up; if the day one user reviews are shit, then you just use that $5 on something else in store. The only time I've personally had a problem with a game I preordered was Transistor, which had a number of problems on day one, but I don't feel burned by that since I was completely satisfied by the game (once I could play it) and wanted to support Supergiant Games (to the point that I considered sending them money for Bastion, which I got for super-cheap through a Humble Bundle.)

But I'll not pre-order without serious consideration. I never will for something from Ubisoft or EA.

The recent spate of Kickstarter games like Bloodstained, Mighty No. 9, and Shenmue III are essentially pre-orders with fan-fare and longer wait time (and potential for much greater bonuses), and in these cases the "pre-orders" also show support for the game and provide some initial funding for development. I would prefer to "pre-order" this way, and I hope that companies that might be on the fence about localizing games would use it as a venue to gauge true interest. (I think Atlus, in particular, would benefit from this.)

It's a bad idea to preorder a game that will get made whether you preorder or not. Nintendo preorders don't harm you usually, but they also don't really give any benefit. It's a system with a lot of gain, but only for the stores, whereas it's caused negative consequences for the buyers. Kickstarters aren't really preorders since your funding is directly causing the game to be made.

Just saw Afterburner 2 for sale on the 3DS
Never played, but I'm a huge StarFox fan and often hear the two compared. How does Afterburner stack up these days?
Also: and good RPGs for the 3DS in the way of building up a character and picking abilities, preferably without a party to manage.

So an indie game company is going under and they are losing their shit. Makes of such hit games as Black and White Old Lady Dying Sim and were flabbergasted that putting ads on SJW type sites did not boost sales for the games marketed at those groups.

Now that that is all said and done and they are currently losing their shit a thought occurs. Why are so many people these days making games when they hate people who game as pictured here? Moving on further, why did they fail exactly? "Groundbreaking" conceptual ideas and all that folks seemed to eat up, well I believe it starts with the past and moves into some recent developments.

Gaming journalism is a festering wound on the industry. But it's steadily being cauterized. YouTube is the solution. Now, I know what you're thinking especially if you're from /v/: "YouTube commentators are fucking cancer!". And you're right. But that's not the important thing. The important thing is raw, uncompromised gameplay footage.

For decades, purchasing decisions came down to what reviewers said. Back in the age of magazines and the early internet, you had to rely entirely on the words of these often paid off people, But now you can just go on Youtube and literally see as much of the game as you like, and decide if it's for you. When I dropped eighty bucks on Xenoblade Chronicles, I didn't do it after reading some dirt-encrusted journalists's ramblings about "advancing the medium" or some shit. I did it after watching four hours of raw gameplay footage on YouTube.

Refunds and YouTube.
Two very powerful tools we have now, to fight against these twisted monsters.

A glorious age is upon us. Do not despair, dear anon. The future is bright, indeed.

Same with that shitposter who talks about how game enthusiasts are degenerates who must be purged from society for grorious progressu. I'd like to think they were a reverse troll masquerading as an SJW but I've seen enough unironic statements from actual aGGers on Tumblr or Kotaku comments that I can believe that side has people who are actually this equally dumb and there's a decent 30% chance they're legit, although such types prefer chatpeak and ebonics over chuunishit terms.

Considering the mountains of comics, screen caps, and articles from "SJW" saying some of the craziest shit I've seen in years, it can even make GG seem right if you don't step back a bit and hope/ pray those people are in the minority. Not that it matters though, because they are screaming at the top of their lungs and people are regrettably taking notice.

I'm sure there may be one or two, but they're probably nowhere near as user friendly and easy to use. Not to mention Nintendos upload and "rating" system makes it easy to go and grab something good. Add to this the fact that you only make levels as opposed to an entire hacked game.

Well there's the ease of making the games and the rating system so you have some quality control.

More than that you could see in the NWC that there is new stuff in the game. The koopa clown car, being able to stack different kinds of powerups/vehicles, make giant versions of damn near anything, you can heavily edit enemies like Bullet Bill blasters, lakitu, hammer bros etc to throw/shoot tons of different things, there may be some new enemies in the game (Bowser Jr, who as a boss in NSMB didn't function at all like he does in the NWC footage), being able to mix all the stuff from NSMB, Mario World and SMB3 into one level rather than just choosing one game like most editors would allow, and it looks like the game will have new physics to learn how to play with.

I said earlier I'll just wait for a price drop or sale, I don't want to pay full price but there is definitely some value there.

I hope they make Luigi a playable character. I REALLY hope they add stuff from Mario 2 USA but I kind of doubt they will.

Picked up Shovel Knight for the 3DS yesterday and cleared the first two areas. I am utter shit at the game (never been good at platformers or old Nintendo games) but it will never not be satisfying to clear an area or boss you've been having trouble with... I just wish I didn't have to bleed money to do it as hard as I do. Most other games these days lack that kind of challenge and satisfaction I feel.

Also free Plague Knight DLC any day now... I hope. It is the end of Q2 after all.
