Tomodachi Life was a nightmare machine and I love it.

This looks like a fantastic character and as always adding a new character to the Sonic roster is an amazing idea that can in no way backfire.

I'm sad to hear they weren't as ambitious here as they could have been but I'm still excited for the game. Good review.

Being the guys who worked on Duke Nukem Forever for all that time 3D Realms are going to have to prove to people that they actually know how to make something of quality in the modern games industry and this video doesn't remotely convey that. I mean obviously there's no way to pass actual judgement on their game, but this character design, graphical quality, and generally poorly conceived trailer isn't exactly going to convince people that they have their shit together. You start to wonder why this thing exists if all they have to show is a few character models and explosion effects sat in an endless black sandbox.

@beard_of_zeus: Considering what it was I was actually surprised the game didn't have more technical issues. There was only one I can remember encountering a proper bug and it's even able to display cutscenes during load times without hitching. I don't want to end up just repeating what I've already said in the review here, but for me the thing that really brings the game through is that stylisation and when it's able to pull the action off right. It's actually a lot more ambitious than some AAA games in those areas.

@beard_of_zeus: I mean I only use the stars as a very vague guide anyway, I think trying to put a qualitative judgement into a quantitative score is always something that you can only do in the loosest of ways. I picked up Wet though because I went into a CeX. I hadn't been in one of those shops in over a year, but I remembered them being at least okay for second-hand games, films, electronics, etc. They had a bunch of cheap stuff and I managed to pick up Wet for £3, I'd say I got my money's worth. Also, just a heads-up, you really want to be putting end-game spoilers in spoiler tags, I took care of that when for you. But yeah, the way they handled that ending was abysmal, probably the worst part of the game.

@takashichea: Oh, I'm not saying virtual reality can't be a huge part of our lives in some hypothetical future, it absolutely could be, but I think I'm expressing a reasonable scepticism that technologies like the Rift will entirely engulf modern gaming. Yes, people before have been sceptical about technologies which later went on to be big successes, but there have also been technologies which some people were excited about which have just gone nowhere. All we can do is look at each technology within itself and comment accordingly.

That's you? Oh hey, I guess I used your picture in one of my blogs too. That's some good Oculus-wearing son.
