    No Man's Sky

    There are plenty of lifeless 'rocks' to be found, which are usually rich in resources. There's usually at least one in every system I've visited. No large gas giants though as far as I know.

    So basically what Rubberjohnny is saying, is that if there's lots of colour, then it's for kids? Where as if there is a lack of colour it's for grown ups? Zombi-u is a kids game because the cover has a bit of colour? I don't get it.

    I'm hoping that the NX will have the ability to transfer across previous purchases from both 3ds and Wii-U. If that's possible, I'll more than likely get one. After all, you were able to transfer across all the wii vc purchases to wii-u.

    Pikmin 3 is very lush indeed. It made me crave more fruit juice in real life.

    Maybe they've got a better understanding of what's involved in HD game production during the two and a half years since that article?

    What's different about it?
  7. It is quite a momentous occasion though, as once you complete that mission you can have a cat of your own!

    It's the shopping centre one, Arowana Mall.
  11. I have to admit that after playing it for over 150 hours and finishing all the main story chapters, a lot of the games systems totally elude me. Especially overdrive and it's proper use. It all looks like magic to me. The last battle in the story chapters was hugely difficult for me as well. I think I would have done better if I had understood some of the systems better. All the stuff that's left to do post story, is still compelling though. I'm going to have to understand how things work though if I'm ever going to beat the tougher enemies, especially some of those super tyrants knocking about.
  12. the heart to hearts in this are supposed to be about showing what characters get up to when they are not with you. It took a long time for me to find this out, but I think it makes sense.
  13. Most recent one for me was Xenoblade Chronicles X. There's a bit not long after the game starts, where you've been wandering through an enclosed rainy ravine at night. You get to the end of this as the dawn is breaking and the rain stops. You come out into an open area as the sun rises and you see the most amazing vista, stretching off as far as the eye can see, a landscape filled with bizarre and exotic lifeforms, ranging in size from human sized, to the size of shopping centres. A real 'Wizard of Oz' moment. Before that, it was Alien Isolation, especially the PC version. If you are a fan of the original Alien film, then this gaming nirvana. It looks like the film in every detail, the locations are incredible. I've actually spotted little background details in the film now, thanks to the game. It's a much more terrifying experience than the film though, when it is you that is being hunted. I never knew crouching down behind a chair for minutes at a time could be so tense. Finally, Mario Kart 8. I don't care what anyone else says, this is the best one, I have them all, I know my Mario Kart. This one is just so slick. Every detail on every track, like the pink frosting on the sweet track that leaves a dusty layer on your tyres if you touch it. Or as you slowly come to realise the true shape of the race courses you hurtle around upside down or up the walls. The little expressions on characters faces as you jostle for position. Incredible draw distances. Rock solid framerate. It really makes me think this is what a modern day arcade game would be like, if they were still being made. Everything about it screams fun and is a massive treat for the eyes. It's accessible and challenging and beautiful. Everything a good game should be.

    First Game You Can Remember Playing

    Things were quite similar for me too actually, thinking about it. I definitely remember playing Gun Fight, which may have been even before the home Pong thing I had. My memory is actually a little fuzzy about what may have been my first. I remember playing a really old vector car game too, although I can't remember the name of it. I also remember playing a game which may have been called 'Circus'. You used a dial to control a see saw which you could move left and right and attempted to keep two acrobats bouncing in order to pop balloons at the top of the screen. It was a lot like 'Breakout' and I later had 'Circus Atari' on my Atari VCS, partly because of playing that earlier game.

    First Game You Can Remember Playing

    The first game I remember playing was one of those home pong style consoles. It was made by Ingersoll, I think. That was christmas 1978. I soon got bored of it though and probably wouldn't have bothered much with video games ever again. However, the following summer I was on holiday in Blackpool. It was there that I discovered Space Invaders in the arcades. I'd never seen or heard of an arcade until that point. Seeing all those machines (and their various copycat clones) lined up row upon row was a revelation! There were other games that were like Space Invaders too, that I can't remember the names of, where graphics would be different and the rules would be different. There was one where a few invaders would kind of break formation and one of the bonus ships would move across near the bottom of the screen. Wish I could remember the name of that one so I can MAME it... The Deluxe Space Invaders cabinet was the most impressive though. It had a kind of flat model diorama in the cabinet, depicting the surface of the moon, with stars and space behind it. The video image was reflected onto a piece of glass in front of this and it all looked very impressive and futuristic. Not stopped playing since then.
