  1. Full doc will be up next week. Dis gun b gud. EDIT: Oops! please move this to Discussion.
  2. According to Twitter according to GAF: http://m.neogaf.com/showthread.php?t=1088670 I'm all in for this if true, FFXII was the game that broke my original PS2 so I didn't get far and I enjoyed it a lot more than FF13. PS4 and Vita, please. Eurogamer Article: http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2015-08-03-looks-like-final-fantasy-12-hd-remaster-is-real Final Fantasy 12 looks set for the high definition remaster treatment. Arnie Roth, the conductor for a Final Fantasy Distant Worlds concert held in Pittsburgh, mentioned the word "remake" at the event (check out the slip in the video, below). We suspect Square Enix isn't giving Final Fantasy 12 the full-on remake treatment it's giving to Final Fantasy 7, rather a HD Remaster lick of paint, as it did with Final Fantasy 10 and Final Fantasy 10-2.That's according to conductor Arnie Roth, who breathed word of a Final Fantasy 12 "remake" at an event in the US held over the weekend. Whoops! Rob Fahey reviewed Final Fantasy 12 for Eurogamer all those years ago, awarding it a 10. "It's not hard to see us looking back in five years time and seeing FFXII as a pivotal, changing moment in how RPGs are designed; a game which drew on the experience of Final Fantasy's branches into tactical strategy and massively multiplayer, as well as on the more mature storytelling of other mediums, and folded it back into the number series, to wonderful result," he wrote. "Fans will, of course, debate the merits of Final Fantasy XII for a long time - but our own experience with this game fully justifies giving it the highest accolade we can award." UPDATE: The composer who let slip Square Enix is working on a Final Fantasy 12 "remake" has issued a statement saying the term was used "in error". Over the weekend Arnie Roth set tongues wagging when he said the words "Final Fantasy 12" and "remake" with the same breath during the Distant Worlds: Final Fantasy concert. We took that to mean Square Enix is making a HD Remaster, as it has done with Final Fantasy 10 / 10-2 - not a full-blown remake. Here's the statement, just published to the Distant Worlds Facebook page: Dear friends, In response to comments posted by fans, I want to rectify a statement made from the stage Saturday night at our Distant Worlds: music from Final Fantasy concert in Pittsburgh. Following conversations with composer Hitoshi Sakimoto regarding new concert arrangements of music from Final Fantasy 12, regrettably, the term "remake" was used in error during one of the announcements that took place from the stage during the concert. We sincerely regret any confusion this has caused. Arnie Roth Producer and Music Director Distant Worlds: music from Final Fantasy Of course, Roth's statement fails to pour cold water on the suggestion Square Enix is making a HD Remaster of Final Fantasy 12. We'll have to wait and see!
  3. has this been reported on here ....? Metro Redux: Two Games, 1080p on PS4 I could say how excited we are to be showing you this trailer, but I have an idea of what you really want to know… so let’s just cut to the chase. Metro Redux runs at 1080p, 60FPS onPlayStation 4. We had to sneak the PS4 development kits into Kiev to make it happen, but we wholeheartedly think it was worth it… Metro Redux includes Metro 2033 (for the first time ever on a PlayStation platfrom) and Metro: Last Light, remastered for PlayStation 4, with all the gameplay, AI, gunplay, and graphical improvements we added in Last Light now applied to both games. You’ll be able to download each game – Metro 2033 Redux and Metro: Last Light Redux – from PSN for just $24.99 each – or if you prefer, pick up the boxed Metro Redux double pack for only $50. Expect to hear a lot more news from us between now and release later this summer! In the meantime, please enjoy our trailer for the game! http://blog.us.playstation.com/2014/05/22/metro-redux-two-games-1080p-on-ps4/#sf3033726 Return to Post-Apocalytic Moscow With Metro Redux 4A Games and Deep Silver are bringing the iconic Metro series to the next generation. Metro Redux features fully re-mastered and improved versions of both Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light, creating the most compelling Metro experience ever. With re-worked next-gen visuals, smooth 60FPS gameplay on console, as well as new and improved content and features, Metro Redux is much more than a simple HD upgrade. For the Redux edition, Metro 2033 has been completely overhauled: • The original game has been rebuilt in the latest and greatest iteration of the 4A Engine, bringing all the graphical and gameplay improvements from Last Light to Metro 2033 Redux • Enjoy completely re-mastered visuals: advanced lighting, dynamic weather, more detailed characters with improved animation, more dynamic destruction and improved smoke, fire and particle effects • Experience radically improved gameplay: advanced enemy AI, improved combat and stealth mechanics, superior weapon handling and more responsive, intuitive controls plus signature features from Last Light such as the atmospheric ‘mask wipe’ mechanic, weapon customisation, and silent kills and take-downs Metro: Last Light has also received a graphical face-lift and gameplay improvements that carry across both titles, including new melee animations, and the fan requested ‘Check Watch’ and ‘Check Inventory’ features. It also includes all previously released Season Pass add-on content – a further 10 hours of single-player gameplay. With Metro Redux, players now have the choice to experience both Metro games the way they want with the introduction of two unique ‘Play Styles.’ Those who favoured the more survival horror oriented gameplay of Metro 2033 can play both campaigns in the ‘Survival’ Play Style, a fraught slow-burn fight for survival with limited resources, deadlier enemy AI, and slower reload speeds. Those who enjoyed the more action oriented gameplay of Metro: Last Light can try the ‘Spartan’ Play Style, providing Artyom with a powerful set of combat skills and more plentiful resources. In addition, the legendary Ranger Mode returns to both games, providing the most immersive and challenging experience as the HUD is stripped away and hardcore rules apply. Upon release, Metro 2033 Redux and Metro: Last Light Redux will each be available separately as a digital download for Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and PC a suggested $24.99 / €19.99 / £15.99. Alongside the digital release, a boxed compilation containing both games, titled Metro Redux will be available at retail for a suggested $49.99 / €39.99 / £34.99. Metro 2033 Redux, Metro: Last Light Redux and the compilation Metro Redux are scheduled for release this Summer for Xbox One, PlayStation, and Windows PC. Dedicated Linux and SteamOS versions will also release later this year. Metro Redux is based on the internationally best-selling novel METRO 2033 by Dmitry Glukhovsky. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eKrf97qljs4#t=67
  4. The Mirror's Edge Twitter and Facebook just had this posted on them, so it looks like they're gearing up for a full gameplay reveal this E3. They've previously said the game will release early 2016, but we know so little about the game, that maybe a surprise 2015 release isn't completely out of the question. Early Concept Footage + Developers talking rubbish at E3 2013 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gb60vP2PHaw It's been a long time coming, but it's finally happening.
  5. http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2015-02-10-eurogamer-has-dropped-review-scores Instead of ratings out of 10, they're giving out "Essential", "Recommended" and "Avoid" labels to some games. If a game doesn't get one of those, you'll have to actually read the review. This means Eurogamer reviews will no longer be listed on Metacritic. However, on Google searches for their reviews, those labels will be assigned star ratings.
  6. So what are you buying this month to fill the empty void in your soul? We're spoilt for choice this year and October is no exception as it's shaping up to be another fantastic month, no matter what your taste might be. I've pre-ordered Wolfenstein II (PC), Evil Within 2 (PC) and Super Mario Odyssey myself! October 3rd Batman: The Enemy Within – Episode 2 (XB1/PS4/PC/Mobile) Battle Chasers: Nightwar (XB1/PS4/PC/Switch) Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen (XB1/PS4) Forza Motorsport 7 (XB1/PC) theHunter: Call of the Wild (XB1/PS4) October 6th LEGO Ninjago Movie Game (XB1/PS4/Switch) Layton's Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires' Conspiracy (3DS) Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions (3DS) Radial-G: Racing Revolved (PS4 + VR) Raiden V- Director's Cut (PS4) October 10th Middle-Earth: Shadow of War (XB1/PS4/PC) Sine Mora EX (Switch) October 13th CHAOS;CHILD (PS4) Don't Knock Twice (PS4) Friday the 13th The Game (XB1/PS4) Raid World War II (XB1/PS4) The Evil Within 2 (XB1/PS4/PC) October 17th ELEX (XB1/PS4/PC) Rogue Trooper Redux (XB1/PS4/PC) South Park The Fractured but Whole (XB1/PS4/PC) WWE 2K18 (XB1/PS4) October 18th Gran Turismo Sport (PS4) October 20th Axiom Verge Multiverse Edition (PS4/Switch) Fire Emblem Warriors (Switch/3DS) The Inner World: The Last Wind Monk (XB1/PS4/PC) October 24th Destiny 2 (PC) Road Rage (XB1/PS4) We Sing Pop (XB1/PS4) Yomawari: Midnight Shadows (PS4/Vita/PC) October 25th Aer - Memories of Old October 27th Assassin's Creed Origins (XB1/PS4) Just Dance 2018 (XB1/PS4/Switch) Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon (PS4/Switch) Outcast- Second Contact (XB1/PS4) Super Mario Odyssey (Switch) Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus (XB1/PS4/PC) Notable Releases But whatever you do: buy Wolfenstein II. Watch that trailer and tell me it isn't the most exciting thing you've seen in ages?! (aside from Odyssey of course)
  7. Even though this might be nothing new to most, it's an interesting feature on tax avoidance by big corporations nonetheless.
  8. Conference Schedule EA - Saturday, June 10 at 8PM BST Microsoft - Sunday, June 11 at 10PM BST Bethesda - Monday, June 12 at 5AM BST PC Gaming Show - Monday, June 12 at 6PM BST Ubisoft - Monday, June 12 at 9PM BST Sony - Tuesday June 13 at 2AM BST Nintendo - Tuesday, June 13 at 5PM BST Streams IGN | Twitch | Youtube | Easy Allies | Giant Bomb | Gamespot So last year we already had a ton of hype coming our way by mid-April. Now however, with little over a month to go, it feels like there haven't even been any hints of E3 rumblings. Where is the excitement? Is it even happening this year? I mean where are the saucy rumours? Where are the clickbait articles telling us what's hot? Where are the endless lists of hopes and dreams put out by forumites across the globe? Where are the gifs?! It feels like this is going to be one of the most disappointing E3's in quite a while... Even the weather is shit! UNLESS of course they have finally found a way to keep their cards close to their chests and contain every leak so far. Maybe Sony are gearing up to deliver another #E3OFDREAMS. Maybe project Scorpio will turn out to be a box which will stream games directly to your brain without the need for any peripherals whatsoever, a BrainBox if you will. And what of Nintendo? What have Retro been working on? Will Nintendo finally announce a 3-studio development cycle for the Metroid Prime series? Is Metroid Prime HD going to be a pre-order bonus if you buy MP4: Chozo Warfare? All signs point towards most definitely not but that's no reason to stop believing. So yeah this E3 is going to be a massive disappointment and I will enjoy every moment of it. I will stock up on all the snacks and drinks money can buy and I will savour every cringe like it's the last. Good luck everyone. Will update this post with schedules and streams as they become available.
  9. Stream | Youtube | Archive ABOUT What to Expect? more at NintendoLife Might as well have a separate thread for it am I right? I'm hoping they're able to make ARMS look more enticing by showing more characters and modes as I'm not sure the Nintendo Tax™ is justified at the moment. They could at least double the roster and make Dhalsim a pre-order bonus (insta buy).
  10. For months I read this the wrong way (thanks RPS). And for years I've been pronouncing Hylian wrong as well. It's Hi-lian not Hillian.
  11. They are currently showing Power Rangers on twitch!
  12. http://www.polygon.com/2017/2/1/14474198/oculus-lawsuit-verdict Palmer Luckey also personally liable for 50m - GIRUY Palmer. Quite startled by the sheer size of the compensation. Maybe they can use that money to make a new engine for Fallout and Elder Scrolls.
  13. Since we have more people into VR than ever, I thought it'd be worth having a general VR thread for sharing news / tech updates relating to VR holistically. Here's something cool I saw this morning, "walk around" VR video.. nice! The catch? 3gb per FRAME. Sheesh.
  14. Sources: Destiny 2 Coming To PC, Aims To Feel Like A Totally New Game I'd be up for some Destiny on PC. I've never been a fan of the first (vanilla) game but from what I've seen recently is that, if anything, it looks like a nice laid back experience where you shoot aliens in the face with your friends while listening to dumb exposition in the background. Sort of like Borderlands but less grating, I suppose. 750+ employees(?!) working on a single game though... is that a new record?
  15. ...Well maybe not but it sure does look Russian! Source
  16. Shamelessly stolen from the Gaf but this is beyond cool (and I missed the closing ceremony cause I didn't think it'd be worth watching, doh). Japan's PM transforms into Mario and then that ending, perfect. The entire video and ceremony are classy as fuck.
  17. As far as highlights go: pretty much the entire Sony press conference. The live orchestra, Kojima's reveal, RE7, God of War, etc. The whole thing felt like a company finally understanding what E3 is all about which is all killer no filler. It was made even better by the cast of Easy Allies. They brought in genuine excitement for the medium which, strangely enough, is all too rare these days. It was refreshing to not have to deal with constant cynicism and negativity. Hype levels were through the roof during their live streams and I wouldn't want to have it any other way. While Giant Bomb took it down a few notches and pulled me back into reality they once again nailed it with their post-show discussions. No PR bullshit, just real talk with developers (yo). Good stuff. Microsoft had a decent showing but still haven't convinced me to get an Xbox any time soon, on the contrary. Sea of Thieves and Forza Horizon 3 do look incredibly good but considering these are also coming out on PC (granted Windows 10 only) one begs the question why even get an Xbox in the first place? Especially now that they've got Scorpio coming. Weird. Speaking of weird: Nintendo. With only one game to show and no news on NX it didn't look good. "Nintendo were doomed" according to the internet. However, when the main press conferences were finished it was pretty much all Zelda from that point on. What an amazing surprise and showstopper that game was. It blew me away and if that thing isn't going to sell them consoles then I don't know what will. GG Nintendo. All the other pressers were rather forgettable. Well except for EA's shitshow of course, that sure was a glorious train wreck. They almost went full Konami there, almost. Bethesda's event wasn't nearly as good as last year's with it's only highlight being Dishonored 2. I was disappointed that they didn't have anything from MachineGames and/or Tango Gameworks. Unveiling Quake and Prey is fine and all but at least show some gameplay after. Otherwise it's just a waste of time. Ubisoft's pace was all over the place with waaay too much time spent on South Park and I say that as someone who's looking forward to the game. And finally let's not forget about the PC Gaming Show which felt like the cool older brother of the lot. It's just a stage show like any other at E3 really but entertaining enough none the less. Overall completely inoffensive and I hope they come back next year as well. Moving on to games I'll most likely be picking up on day 1: Zelda, Dishonored 2, Horizon 0D, Titanfall 2, Sea of Thieves, The Last Guardian, Deus Ex Mankind Divided and Call of Duty. With most of those coming out this year I don't even know where to find the time or money to play them all. Oh and BF1 just do Rush mode fuckin' proper okay? I'll be all over you if you do. So your thoughts then! What games are you looking forward to the most? Did you enjoy the Pokemans? Sad we didn't get a Shadow Warrior 2 release date? Was it another overload of shooters this year? How excited are you to have three whole games starring black protagonists? Perhaps you reveled in the cringe during the Minecraft segment? What's your favourite gif? Let us know in the comments down below and see you again next year!
  18. Well guys, I done did it. On the 6th of February I finally achieved the rank of The Global Elite in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (which I achieved after the rank rebalance that happened in December I might add). It took me a whole lot of time (1100 hours) and energy (drank a lot of Monster Energy) but in the end it was all worth it. Even with all of the cheaters and griefers running amok I persevered and slowly kept moving up the ranks. With each match trying to learn from my mistakes and make improvements to my overall play style, increasingly getting a better understanding of the game and its meta. Along the way I made some friends (and probably some enemies as well) but now I finally have that shiny picture next to my name to prove I am the best of the best! (as far as the game's own competitive matchmaking goes of course). So now that I've attained both the title of the forum's Smartest Gamer (after beating The Talos Principle without the use of any guides) and the forum's Most Skilled Gamer I've pretty much got the world at my feet! Where do I go from here you might ask? I don't know yet... I might take a course in knitting or maybe try my hand at stamp collecting? Who knows! Exciting times ahead though that's for sure. In all seriousness though I do kind of, sort of, feel 'proud' in a weird way. Life has been rather shit for me as of late and with not a lot of going for me at the moment this does feels like a tiny achievement (like dis if u cri everitim). You may think that's sad or whatever but being able to say "I'm a Global Elite in Counter-Strike" now feels a bit rewarding after having spent so much time with it! Yes I could've learned to play the guitar or maybe have learned a different language even but where's the fun in that? Context: For reference out of 1.050.926 Players this is the current rank distribution from the last 30 days. Some more context: The rank-up game: So sexy: The moral of the story? Don't let angry Russians bring you down and never give up!
  19. Nintendo's first 'non-wearable' is a sleep-tracking device How this will do them any good is beyond me. The next morning it will just say "Stop playing games before you go to bed". No one will ever buy a Wii U any more! Oh wait...

  21. As a follow up to the small fanzine I did (Game Icons: Luigi) I thought it would be great to follow up with Mario now that we are approaching the 30th Anniversary of Super Mario Bros. I think the book will not only celebrate the legend himself, but show how he has provided creative inspiration to others. This is an open invite to everybody. The Luigi book was mainly a test run with my local printer before doing the big yellow EDIP book. It came out great and we had a lot of fun doing it, but it was based on restrictions (time, cost, postage etc.) - it was a closed invite of 32 artists to make sure it all fit in a small enough envelope to post out at reasonable costs. With this being based on Mario, and after getting a lot of disappointed emails from gamers/artists who didn't get chance to take part I've decided to make this one open to all. No page restriction, no 'famous artists only'—everything will be considered and the outcome could be a lot bigger in depth/weight than the first book. This is a good thing! Where Luigi was tall and slim, this will be short, wide and big boned. If you have fun ideas and would like to take part, please do! Rough deadline is end of September. Full Submission guide detailing the full process, artwork specification and more is available here: http://www.gamepaused.net/submissions/GP-I02-MARIO-SUBMISSIONS.pdf Luigi and Mario: Some shots showing the general vibe of the Luigi Book: The book will hopefully be produced by fangamer.net (they are handling all GP stuff atm). Failing that I'll either fund the project myself or if the scale is too large, will Kickstart it to help cover production costs. Ultimately, on top of exposure for artists, I'd like every one to receive a free copy of the book—but can't confirm that right now. There is also an opportunity for a range of designs featured in the book to be made into other products (t-shirts, posters, badges etc.) with fangamer. They would at that point open direct communication with artists and organise a deal for $ per product sold (that would be nothing to do with me at that point). Looking for fun ideas, visuals that tell a specific story or memory from peoples enjoyment of the Mario series, and generally great art styles. I mentioned at the start that it's open to everybody—do share if possible! Would be great to have some mukkers onboard. Thanks, Matt!
  22. It's EDIT: somewhat, kind of, fucked isn't it. Football games (two out of two, no less) have been behind their console counterparts since forever, PC ports tend to release long after the initial console release (and we're not talking about small budget titles here) and when they do finally arrive on time they're riddled with bugs and performance issues. It's almost as if the industry is saying "buy our dedicated gaming machines please" because apparently coding for PC is tricky business, even in 2015! Discuss. And don't forget to vote and subscribe.
