  • Persona 5 New Trailer Celebrates The Accolades It Has Gotten
    Bald Bouncer
    Atlus’ Persona 5 is the second highest rated game of this year, as well as the highest rated non remaster game on the PS4. It is one of the highest rated JRPGs of all time, and is widely considered to be the best game in the long running Persona series. In other words, it is fantastic by every standard- and this new trailer for the game, which is actually a remix of the ‘Sizzle trailer’ for the game that was released ahead of the game’s launch, reinforces that by showing all the accolades...

  • PS4 Firmware Update 4.55 Now Out; Adds ‘Stability’
    Bald Bouncer
    Update 4.55 is now out for the PS4. And while you shouldn’t have expected anything major after the feature rich update 4.50 was just released, it still deserves to be highlighted- this is one of those famous ‘stability’ updates. Yes, that’s right, update 4.55 adds nothing to the PS4 but more ‘stability.’ Which is, I guess, one fix to the wobbling problem that launch PS4 systems had?

  • Drawn To Death Review – Not Drawing Enough Inspiration
    Bald Bouncer
    I have greatly enjoyed David Jaffe’s previous works so when he announced Drawn to Death, his new highly stylized, uber violent shooter, my interest was piqued. I’m someone who appreciates my shooters to look, feel, and play different – I’m more likely to play Overwatch or Splatoon than Call of Duty or Battlefield. Drawn To Death fit that to a T, and it was coming from one of my favorite creators as well. I was intrigued, even when so few others were.

    On the whole, I think the...

  • Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Could Be 10 Hours Long
    Bald Bouncer
    At the recent BAFTA Game Awards, Naughty Dog director of communications Arne Mayer teased to IBTimes UK that Uncharted: The Lost Legacy would be roughly 10 hours along. When speaking about how the game went from being DLC to a standalone title, Mayer said that, “Years ago, when we were asked if we were ever doing a single player expansion for Uncharted we always said, ‘Well, we don’t have the self-discipline to do that’. If we tried to do that we’d create a full game.


    “There’s...

  • Street Fighter 5 Is Hitting Its Stride, Says Capcom

    Street Fighter 5 was such a missed opportunity. Capcom was following the trailblazing Street Fighter 4, which is credited with single handedly having revived the fighting game genre, and, owing to an exclusivity arrangement with Sony, had all eyes on them thanks to an extensive marketing campaign. But the game, while mechanically sublime, launched with a paucity of content and all manner of issues- the ensuing word of mouth was enough to scare most people away, and the game has shambled on ever since.

    However, Capcom’s diligent work in supporting the game over the last year seems to be bearing some fruit. Speaking to GamesIndustry.biz, Stuart Turner, Capcom Europe’s newly appointed COO, discussed Street Fighter 5‘s launch and subsequent fortunes, noting that the game was in a ‘stronger place’ now.

    “Street Fighter 5 is hitting its stride, there are seasons of content to come and we still have support plans for the title for many more years,” he said. “Our Capcom Pro Tour is going into even more countries than ever before while local tournaments are being set up in places such as India in 2017. After a difficult start Street Fighter 5 in a very good place now.”

    He also noted that the service model in itself wasn’t flawed, especially for a game like Street Fighter 5– “I still believe the service game model is absolutely the thing for Street Fighter. It was always going to be a huge challenge to take a well loved brand from a traditional boxed product to a service game business model. The way a game like that is produced, developed, tested and marketed are all hugely different to a traditional boxed game. I don’t think it would be wrong to say that we didn’t get much right with Street Fighter 5 at launch, we’ve learnt and put things in place that will avoid such issues ever arising in the future. Getting an offering that’s right for consumers first should be always be our priority.”

    Of course, one can argue that something as basic as this is something Capcom should have known to begin with, but they’ve done good work on the game since its launch, and they’re clearly committed to continuing to improve it, so I’ll cut them some slack.
