  1. Devils Third

    Game Central have given it a two out of ten but after reading the review, even that sounds generous.
  2. Super Smash Bros. 3DS / Wii U

    In which case, they better give us a skin for Mega Man and Pit to match.
  3. Super Smash Bros. 3DS / Wii U

    What about this guy? Even his latest incarnation was exclusive to Nintendo for a brief spell.
  4. Your 2015 Gaming Diary

    I'm currently working my way through Borderlands: The Pre Sequel and will hope to write something up when I'm done. I finished the main campaign yesterday and went and started on the DLC. In the mean time here's a much longer than I expected post on Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 - the game I completed prior to starting this one.
  5. Star Fox Zero

    Glad I'm not imagining things - something is definitely off. And that image, crude as it may be, does look more natural to my eyes. If you look closely, you can see Slippy in the cockpit.
  6. Star Fox Zero

    Maybe it's me but something seems odd about that boxart. The only thing I think I can pin it down to is that the fur effect and the lighting on the characters is so pronounced that the Arwings on the front look very plain by comparison. It makes it look like two images thrown together that almost works but doesn't instead of one coherent design.
  7. Release Dates

    It's been a great year for my wallet because I've spent only £23 on Nintendo games all year (Kirby 3DS) and it will continue to remain that way until Star Fox or Xenoblade providing they live up to their potential. So it's not all doom and gloom
  8. Xenoblade Chronicles X (4th Dec)

    Aha, shows how much attention I pay to things these days... I'm really out the loop on a lot of stuff like this.
  9. Xenoblade Chronicles X (4th Dec)

    According to the link that VsPhoenix posted in the release dates thread, it seems there will be a limited edition of the game featuring a steelbook, artbook, map and poster. Was that known prior to today?
  10. Yep, am so maverick.

  11. Job woes/wins

    Due to some recent departures in the business, I've been approached to join the Financial Accounting department. Normally these roles are quite sought after and generate a lot of interest, and then a lot of internal bickering when someone does or doesn't get it. But because of my experience with the systems, my old manager who now works in there recommended me to the head of the function and from then onwards, it was just a matter of when - I didn't even have to sit for an interview. Salary details are still being worked out but it should be a minimum jump of 20% if not more. I'm not able to move until my replacement comes in though, and we've done a hand over, which will be the start of the next month but in a few more weeks time, I'll no longer be a manager - thank heavens for that.

  15. Rumour: MercurySteam were pitching new Metroid games

    I'm probably in the minority, but I thoroughly enjoyed all three Lords of Shadow games. All three looked fantastic for their hardware constraints. My only real issue with the first is that some of the enemies were a bit damage spongy - the DLC boss was just ridiculous. But it's scope and atmosphere was top notch - thanks to the graphics and soundtrack. 2 also has a fantastic soundtrack - a lot of the songs being fuller versions of Mirror of Fate and the combat was improved as well. Whilst there were less whip moves overall, the additional weapons were sensibly balanced against their need for magic so as to not burn through it in a handful of moves. The Metroidvania map was a bit confusing to navigate at times and the stealth bits were ill judged but at least they were mercifully brief. The Revelations DLC was also really well done. The story throughout 1 and Mirror was good but slightly let down by the ending in 2. I think under Nintendo's guidance, they could have turned in something pretty good. They have the talent, they just need the refinement.
