  1. Never mind your PT's and your Alien chasing Ripley Jr around a space station, at least you know to bring a change of underwear with you in advance with horror games. What about those games that blindside you, ones that are all sunny and smiley and suddenly AAAAAAARGGGGHHHHH!!! I've played dozens of games where you go underwater, but none has instilled that primal fear of drowning in me the way Sonic gasping his last breath did. I feel tense just watching that gif all these years later. Sega thought that was suitable for little kids? The sick bastards!
  2. New from Red Barrels (lol, good name) which is a new studio full of guys who worked on Prince of Persia, Splinter Cell, Assassin's Creed etc, comes this survival horror. It's a digital-only PC release for now. (Edit - PS4 too!) If the trailer is anything to go by, they've mashed up Amnesia, Fatal Frame and Mirror's Edge. Well, you run away from things whilst jumping athletically with your hands flailing everywhere. Survival horror is not dead!
  3. So after 8 years and an awful, unsuccessful spinoff, there's a new SimCity in the works, which will actually be 3D! And will be named "SimCity" like all the cool kids are doing these days. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kztNWdhRdnw&feature=player_embedded So missions, specialisation (which I imagine will take the form of a "perk" system) and an emphasis on social networking aspects of play. I'd wager it ends up an Origin-exclusive F2P social game, which is up there with "classic franchise returns... as a shooter" as "things you don't want to hear". Then again Anno 2070 basically has l
  4. http://www.vg247.com...h-by-halloween/ Yes folks, the Dear Esther folks and the Amnesia folks have gathered together to make the followup to the scariest game ever. I'm already shitting myself. Somehow missed the first game? Here's what you missed:
  5. Official blurb -- Doesn't appear to be up on Steam just yet, but this is so getting bought. Best. Game. Ever.

    I got this Steam Early Access game from the steam santa. https://www.playnether.com/ http://store.steampowered.com/app/247730/?snr=1_7_15__13 It's a bit Day Z, a bit L4D. You play with up to 64 other players in a fallout style post apocalyptic world. You lose your stuff you have on your when you die, but there's a stash in the safe zones. If you can actually get there without either being killed by monsters in the dark, backstabbed by a lone player, or toyed with and slain by a murderous player cult. It's the creepiest and scariest game I've played in years. I will sit behind a box in an emp
  7. This sounds pretty interesting. A new horror title featuring a procedurally-generated environment. You don't have any guns to defend yourself, your main tool is your cell phone. It's also one of the first games announced that uses Unreal Engine 4 and comes out on PC later this year. What might be of interest to some but Mr. Woo in particular is that the creative director worked on the first two F.E.A.R. games and Condemned for Monolith. As for the real kicker, the game is written by Jessica Chobot. Yes, that Jessica Chobot. Still, it sounds good. Polygon has a story up: http://www.polygon.com/
  8. As mentioned earlier in the official 3DS thread, Level-5 is launching Guild 01 in Japan in 2012. Guild 01 is more of a concept than a game, consisting of four games made by big-name developers let loose over a game genre of their choice. Here are more details and images of each of the four games that make up Guild 01. Game 1: "Kaiho Shojo" ("Liberation Girl") Meet Shoko, the second president of Japan and a high school girl who boards a mech as Japan's only hope against an invading country that's sucking away all the energy. This shooter is made by the infamous Suda 51 (Flower, Sun, and Ra
  9. Game of the Year: 10 to 1 20 to 11 38 to 21 59 to 41 76 to 62 103 to 81 140 to 104: Your Most Wanted in 2014 The Hall of Shame The Biggest Surprises of 2013 Hello! Apologies for the delay, but a busy end to the financial year at work plus exciting* family developments have led to somewhat less free time than I was counting on. But the results are all collated, I've started filling out my lovely, upbeat commentary, and I'm just about ready to start publishing. Those of you who've been in one of my results threads before should know most of the drill already, but for the

  11. So the "look over there" thing keeps coming up in the Trouble with Nintendo thread, and to be fair, the forum does have a bit of a blindspot. Despite being a company with fingers in many pies, they're in a much worse financial position than Nintendo. Sony have a bunch of loss-making divisions, and like Nintendo before them have just announced a billion dollar loss instead of a predicted full year profit, along with layoffs of another 5,000 staff, making this 30,000 since 2008. Their PC division, including VAIO is being sold off to some investment group, and TV is being restructured and spun o
  12. Hope you like freemium clagware and phone apps. "I never asked for this."
  13. There's a discussion brewing in the How Videogames Changed the World thread in the Film & TV folder which seems better suited to here, so I thought I'd create a topic for it. In the thread, Silent Runner mused about how great Metroid Prime could be free of combat. This was scoffed at, and I (with my typical tact and knack for understatement) offered my support to the argument that Metroid Prime might, perhaps, have benefited from less combat and more focus on exploration and puzzles. Which got me waffling on about something that I think is a fairly obvious issue with our view of exactly wh
  14. Sorry to start my own thread but my post just got swamped in the PS4 thread due to all the activity and excitement. Well my PS4 works but my brothers doesn't I'm trying to sort it for him, I've tried all the trouble shooting, checked it on all different cables and a different TV, it still won't boot up and it won't boot to safe mode either, took the HDD out and put it back in to no avail. Once powered on the light pulses blue and the power button doesn't respond to turn it off until you hold it for 10 secs. Now here's the thing that has really annoyed me, I've phoned PlayStation support gone
  15. So, Polygon, the new-ish game journalism site that's not officially launched yet and is still part of The Verge has decided to produce an Indie Game: The Movie - esque documentary series. About themselves. http://www.theverge.com/gaming/2012/8/21/3245100/polygon-press-reset-teaser-trailer Now, I have actually quite enjoyed Polygon's output so far, and it's quite promising, but this must be one of the worst ideas I've ever seen. THESE MEN WHO ARE MAKING A WEBSITE QUITE A LOT LIKE A LOT OF OTHER WEBSITES ARE MODERN DAY HEROES. What will happen if it fails? How will these people who work in an in
  16. Global recession, rising cost of games™, domination of smartphone/tablets, the rise of the casual market and free to play / pay to win gaming. Vitas and Wii Us that just won't sell. The Xbone being laughed off stage, the PS4 positioned as the last hope of hardcore gaming but with few announced titles to really back it up. Me, I like shiny new stuff. I've been begging for more POWAR for ages and eventually moved to PC when I got tired of waiting. And there have been many more who did the same, discovering that Windows 7, Steam and full controller support removed most of the PC related horrors o
  17. Well wonder no more! Next time you're being told that you're a homosexual black person of Jewish descent you'll have a face to put to [iTZ]xXx~G0kuW33dSm0ker420~xXx.
  18. Welcome! Here are some examples of the gaming community being the most awful thing ever, feel free to post your own. "But narkleparkle, where can I find such terrible quotes that are worthy of this thread?" Gamefaqs! Reddit! The now no longer updated because it's too depressing Gamerfury! Cliff Bleszinski's twitter page! Steal them from this thread! The choices are endless! So Gamerfury. Treyarch patched Call of Duty and tweaked the weapons a mite, changing one gun's reload time from 0.2 seconds to 0.4 or something equally inconsequential. Call of Duty players are slightly miffed: Meanwhile

    http://homehorror.com/ Anyone else played this? It's a pixelated, horror-themed adventure game, about which I can't say too much more for fear of spoiling it, but it should be safe to say that there are multiple endings, and it takes about one and a half hours to complete. You can pick it up from Steam for a couple of quid, and it's available on both Mac and PC. It's received no small amount of praise from news sites like The Verge, so given I enjoy a good horror game, I sat down to play it last night. If you have any intention to play this, I'd advise doing so before reading the following sp
  20. This deserved its own topic I feel as it might have been brushed over in the others. So what was the one great feature that was being communicated outside of the one disaster. The family sharing right- but the way it worked was never clear- the wording around it was vague and no one was left certain which lead to loads of different interpretations of how it worked. Who was allowed to play what on your list of 10 and at what times? Still sounded obviously too good to be true and kind of counter to the idea that the DRM was obviously to control game revenue. That was the whole point. Why do that
  21. In case anyone misses this in the PS3 thread, there are reports of the latest firmware bricking consoles, so might be wise to not update your PS3 firmware yet. Seems to mostly be affecting PS3s with replacement HDDs. http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-3-Support/Problem-after-update-to-4-45/td-p/40712247 UPDATE: Sony has pulled the 4.45 update.
  22. Is it possible to create a DRM scheme that doesn't require online check in on a 24 hour basis, allows data to be delivered on disk, allows trading, allows sharing, and allows something beneficial to be traded to gamers used to selling disks? (TLDR. I think so, but it screws GameStop) Ok. We start from the basic principle that you're purchasing a licence, and you're trading a licence. There are two delivery mechanisms for this license - digitally along with a digital download, or on a scrap of paper attached to a disk containing the content. You need to be online when the license is added to yo
  23. Thought this was in danger of being lost in the tumult of the Xbox Reveal thread. While it's not always online, it looks like one of our worst fears was true. http://www.wired.com/gamelife/2013/05/xbox-one-analysis/ I don't buy second-hand games, but I do like having the opportunity of reclaiming some value from my purchases when I end up with a turd (imagine having Aliens: Colonial Marines stuck in your collection forever more) and I can see me taking far less chances on games with this system. Sony have been pretty coy on this subject so far, so it will be interesting to see what appro
  24. This is pretty incredible. Attempt to perform heart surgery using controls as unresponsive and cack handed as those in QWOP, with hilarious results. Its a free game developed from one of those indie game jam things. http://globalgamejam...-simulator-2013
