James commented on NiGHTS into Dreams:
James commented on Capcom Resurrects Dragon's Dogma with Major Ex...:
I haven't played this game in months but I might have to resurrect it myself now! Hoorah!
James commented on Street Fighter's Massive Collector's Set Gets ...:
I would buy this.
James commented on Spartacus Legends Fights onto PS3 in 2013:
No, I'm Spartacus.
James commented on Turn Down Your Speakers for This Expendables 2...:
"My man has two jobs!"
James commented on Michael Fassbender Fixed for Assassin's Creed ...:
@tat2 Journalists aren't humans
@tat2 To be fair it's an easy mistake to make, and Variety is a film industry mag, not a games one. Report is probably legit.
James commented on EVO 2K Videos Show Off Incredible Fighting Skills:
Yeah but the game is rubbish so watch the Virtua Fighter videos instead.
This is the first year in ages I haven't watched any SSFIV footage. Now KoFXIII and VF5 are in EVO there's no need for SSFIV.
James commented on NiGHTS into Dreams Makes PSN Dreams Come True:
@PikminMonster Nah, NiGHTS is my number one SEGA game. The only thing that would get me to explode would be a Shining Force III compilation and that's never, ever, ever going to happen, so everybody's safe
@KALofKRYPTON For nostalgia, innit? Plus it'll be going through HDMI instead of SCART so there shouldn't be any nasty blurring or dodgy colour definition. I hooked my Saturn up to my Samsung HDTV not long ago and it still looked pretty good!
James commented on Marvel vs. Capcom Origins Bursts onto PSN This...:
@shonenjump86 Yeah I'm hoping for those too; X-Men vs. Street Fighter is ace but I just sold my copy to a friend. Marvel vs. Street Fighter I was never big on, but I really liked Marvel Super Heroes. Will be great to play it 'arcade perfect'.
If this sells well I hope they bring over X-Men: Children of the Atom too.
@KALofKRYPTON How so? TBH I'll be watching to see how accurate the Saturn emulation is; the machine is notoriously difficult to emulate.
This year SEGA's got Virtua Fighter 5, Jet Set Radio and NiGHTS on or coming to PSN. This makes me inordinately happy.
I think when this comes out I will put together a series of videos showing how to be amazing at NiGHTS because I am amazing at NiGHTS.
I quite like Marvel Super Heroes so this is good news too.
The happiest day of my life.
James commented on Store Update: 27th June 2012 (Europe):
@goldgin Any coordinated and sustained reduction in price is a sale; it doesn't have to be half off to qualify!
James commented on Review: Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock (PlaySt...:
@zaphod Delayed, hopefully for big improvements.
James commented on Review: Lollipop Chainsaw (PlayStation 3):
@mamp 'cos it's offensive.
James commented on Review: Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown (PlayS...:
I'd agree VF4Evo is probably the best; great Quest mode and fantastic tutorials. It's the game that made me fall in love with the series, even though I'd grown up with VF2 and always wanted VF3. Think I might have to download Evo from PSN!
@turtlelink I really wanted to give it a 10 but it's not quite the perfect package. Still an amazing, amazing game, though.
@Wesker Combos are very important for all characters, even the heavyweights, but more important is how you size up your opponent and mislead them. So for instance, you might have a combo that your opponent can easily avoid by ducking, so you'd start the combo, they'd duck and you'd hit them with a mid attack (usually an elbow, knee etc.). That sort of psychology is what VF is really all about!
James commented on Review: Trine 2 (PlayStation Network):
Played it on Wii U. It's very pretty isn't it?
James commented on Talking Point: E3 2012 is Vital for Vita:
@Mickeymac How have you not got a NGPC already?
@Mickeymac Yeah, it's not like we had enough to review lately This hitting PS Plus as a freebie was a good excuse to review it though!
James commented on New Little King's Story Graces Vita This Summer:
Me too Stine, me too.
James commented on Daytona USA and Ridge Racer Smash Together:
That song just ruined my childhood.
James commented on Store Update: 29th May 2012 (North America):
Sadly we're not getting those packs in the EU
James commented on Round Table - What We Expect From Sony At E3:
@Wesker I'm glad you think so! We'll almost certainly do a video for E3 next week so look forward to that
You don't want to see our ugly mugs, surely..
James commented on Goldfinger's Superman Flies into Tony Hawk's P...:
Oh man, the intro drums to Superman take me back to those days...
James commented on Review: Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 2 (PlayS...:
@ATDI Apparently that was just a misunderstanding. Either way, we're years out from any possible Episode 3
James commented on Review: Battleship (PlayStation 3):
@Azikira Nope, sorry!
@rjejr Don't forget there's Marvel Avengers: Battle for the Earth for Wii U and Kinect later this year. That's sure to be fantastic!!!
James commented on Review: Dragon's Dogma (PlayStation 3):
@Tomboy25 My PSN ID is DaddyNewts
Must be honest and say the 360 version I've played didn't have the same problems IGN describes but I guess it's one of those "your mileage may vary" things.
James commented on Rumour: Sony Partnering with "Leading Cloud Ga...:
So I better get some PS Plus then.
James commented on Japanese Sales Charts: Hardware Slump Continues:
Mario + Mario Kart + Fire Emblem + Monster Hunter
James commented on Tomba! Leaps onto PSN This Summer:
Never played this game — way too expensive these days — so someone will have to explain what all the fuss is about!
James commented on Rune Factory: Tides of Destiny:
@Runefactory I don't know if you still visit (it's two months since you commented) but wanted to respond to your comment anyway.
Sadly this time RSG wasn't able to bring Rune Factory over on Wii. Remember that RSG is part of a larger company and sometimes things just don't line up correctly or there are things out of its control.
I know I would have loved to get the Wii and PS3 versions too but it just wasn't to be, sadly.
@Aviator That was one screenshot! Would you like some more?
@WolfRamHeart That's too bad, I was looking forward to sharing PS3 pawns with you!
@WolfRamHeart I agree, the 360 version does seem brighter than the PS3 one and suffers less from tearing. I've played it a lot on 360 and PS3 and the PS3 version is slightly inferior; some slowdown during saving mostly.
As for DLC, looks like Capcom will release bundles of add-on quests, plus there'll be the usual new weapons, customisation options and the ability to buy Rift Crystals (the currency used to hire pawns). It's a massive game so even if you don't buy the DLC I think it's a good deal on its own.
@rjejr So a bit of info:
1 — Personally I don't mind the lack of lock-on: as a MH vet I'm used to it. One character has homing arrows but otherwise it's all about your skill and freedom of character movement. You get used to it, promise
2 — You can turn off subtitles or mute all voices if it bothers you. You can also turn off mini-map and button guides to free up some more of that space. Up to you!
James commented on Sonic Generations:
This and Sonic Colours should both prove that 3D Sonic games can be good.
James commented on Store Update: 15th May 2012 (North America):
I love you guys.
James commented on Sony Coy About The Last Guardian E3 Showing:
@JavierYHL Sony's got nowt to do with FFVXIII, take that up with Square Enix!
James commented on Ubisoft Notes "Multiplatform Potential" for Tr...:
Already have this on my 360 and it's ace. Would love to compete against you guys though and show how incredibly good I am at the Icarus Factor.
James commented on The Sky Turns Grey in New The Last of Us Cinem...:
I don't think I'll play this, I think I'll just watch it instead.
James commented on EA Promises "Game-Changing Innovations" for FI...:
@goldgin Don't get me wrong, I think FIFA has made incredible progress in the past few years compared to its efforts from 1999-2008, but promising the next game will be the "most realistic ever" is like a band saying its next album is the "best thing it's ever done" — ultimately meaningless!
James commented on Sonic 4: Episode II Launch Trailer Celebrates ...:
Out today for me. Bring it on.
How long until this is cancelled, I wonder?
James commented on Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown Slams PSN on 5...:
@turtlelink This will be amazing, I am (almost) certain of it. I will be reviewing both anyway so let me know any questions you might have
James commented on Jack Tretton Against Anti-Used Games Technology:
I personally have no problem with online passes: I think they're a decent way of publishers getting money from pre-owned sales that would otherwise be lost. Like rjejr I think we'll see more online passes rather than banning used games, though I would like to see more publisher-wide passes: your PS Plus subscription should function as your Sony online pass, for instance.
