  1. Sonic All Star Racing Transformed

    I enjoyed the Sega fan-service of SAART but I think a Sonic-only karting game could work if they kept the fan-service to a minimum and instead used the brand and characters to sell a new cartoon racing game with the odd iconic Sonicy element (e.g rings, invisibility sparkles and things like that) and maybe some very loose inspiration in terms of track concepts. There would be something quite depressing about an overly fan-servicey and faithful Sonic racing game at this point. I'd rather have something fresh that isn't constantly being weighed down by the past.
  2. Steam - Lunar New Year Sale Feb 15-19

    Can someone explain how the new wishlists are in any way improved? It actually seems to be a straight-up downgrade in every way in terms of functionality people will actually use - and you still can't remove games from your wishlist from their store page, which is about the only additional functionality I wanted from it.
  3. Disable 'Featured Content' on your PS4!

    This is the problem with big companies offering hugely complex highly-integrated products - they have little competition and they can make you swallow whatever bullshit they want because you're invested and have few other options. We're even seeing this with games, with "monetisation" ramped up after a few months. My guess is they will roll this back, but they will keep pushing what is acceptable if it makes them a few quid.
  4. Quite possibly, yeah. They need more shows as they've got two more hours of schedule to fill through the season - they've ordered more pilots but it likely means more veteran series getting renewed too.
  5. The CW has announced they are expanding to 8-10 on Sunday from next season. For me, this is one of the most surprising TV announcements of all times - I have no idea how they got the affiliates to agree to it as local programming massively outrates CW shows. The CW very briefly programmed Sundays after the UPN/WB merger until 2009-10 - historically, The WB programmed Sundays but UPN did not.
  6. Puyo Puyo Tetris - Steam Release February 2018

    On one hand, I want to support Puyo Puyo and non-shit versions.of Tetris, especially PC ports of Puyo Puyo and non-shit versions of Tetris. On the other hand, Denuvo, plus I'm kind of sick of Tetris so would play a straight Puyo Puyo game
  7. Is there an easy way to work out which tables you already have from the previous bundles? This all seems very complicated
  8. It's neat. It's a shame the cost of ownership for Nintendo products is sky-high meaning so many children will be excluded - going to be hard for a lot of parents to justify £50 (on top of the £280 console) for a novelty that will wear off so fast. There's something about the lo-fi cardboard nature of the product combined with the relatively high price which makes me feel weirdly sad about it in a way I don't usually feel with other expensive toys - I guess because it feels like a rich person's commoditied expensive high-tech version of a poor kids low-tech toy.

    Oppenheimer and Strauss for season 3

    Not really. The whole game and presentation never goes beyond adequate - but they have the licenses so there's not much competition.
  11. Steam - Lunar New Year Sale Feb 15-19

    For anyone else slowly collecting them as they get reduced, Pinball Arcade Season 5 has belatedly become half-price in the sale
  12. Steam - Lunar New Year Sale Feb 15-19

    I agree it's not all bad, but I do think it's a bit of a mixed bag. We do get endless patching (thanks Valve), endless microtransactions/lootboxes/SaaS nonsense (thanks Valve) and early-access games (thanks Valve). And hardware prices are the highest they've been in years, especially graphics card - a 1060 is about £300 and that's not considered a high-end card, which is approaching double that. But, yes, many more first-class multiplatform releases, we still some discounts and bundles (even if big sale discounts have significantly diminished - and the gulf in prices between PC and console - especially PS4 - has diminished with it), and we get good controller support (although using XInput which is a bit restrictive and has therefore limited the support for first-class support for other controllers). I find Steam sales are good for mopping up obscure/older titles and DLC which rarely goes on sale. My cart of EDF: Insect Armageddon, Brothers in Arms Pack, Lara Croft GO, Chantelise, Rayman Raving Rabids and Grow Up for about £10 total and will be most of what I'll buy this sale.

    People rationalise it but PC game prices have just got worse over the last few years, presumably as PC sales became significant enough to shift it from being considered a secondary revenue source to core revenue. We're only decade separated from PC titles being launched at £25. At least now PC versions of multi platform titles can be taken as given.
  14. Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek

    Intended to be R-rated. The mind boggles
  15. Micro Machines World Tour

    I got this from the Humble Bundle having had my eye on this for a little while. What happened here? It's utterly barebones. I enjoyed my time Toybox Turbos but this is utterly stripped down even compared to it. Very disappointing.
