Street Fighter V’s Engine – What do you think?

What were your thoughts on seeing Street Fighter V for the first time? Did you expect Capcom to keep the same SFIV style, or did you have your money on a more realistic-looking engine? Screenshots have been released from Street Fighter V’s early development stages, telling us that Capcom originally felt the need to pull away from SFIV’s art brush-like style: Another look at a more realistic Ryu: At first glance, you’d be forgiven for thinking you were looking at a latest Tekken release. Maybe this was the very reason Capcom scrapped the idea? But was the decision to stick close to SFIV’s art style, the right one? Could Capcom be toying with a realistic look for SF6? More importantly…do you think Capcom made the right decision on staying with the same engine style? Let us know in the comments section....

Where is Nintendo’s Own External HD for Wii U?

The Wii U is an amazing little console. The gamepad, Monster Hunter, Bayonetta, Zelda, Mario Kart, Smash Bros, Amiibo’s and Nintendo Shop (where you can even download and play Wii classics, such as the Metroid Prime Trilogy and Xenoblade Chronicles!) are just some of the reasons why I couldn’t resist buying one. Yes, we all know the Wii U’s weak spot (if it was a boss in The House Of The Dead, it would be an easy kill). Lego City: Undercover was the first game that really put the Wii U’s limited HD space under the spotlight. Now that game is Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water (The full game hits almost 20gb – from trial install to full game upgrade). With the Wii U’s limited USB power and most external HD’s being 3.0, this begs the question – why haven’t Nintendo released their own small portable HD for the Wii U? The benefits of Nintendo releasing their own external Wii U HD: – Such a hard drive could be much cheaper than other externals/portables on the market, due to Wii U gamers only really needing around 350 – 500GB USB 2.0 drives. Add that to the amount Nintendo would produce for Wii U gamers, and that spells a good price. – We wouldn’t have to risk buying external HD’s that don’t work correctly due to higher power consumption (read our guide to choosing the best Wii U external/portable HD). – Nintendo could design it to fit snug on top of our Wii U consoles – Wii U gamers could have the choice of both white and black official external HD’s (for Wii U Basic and Premium editions). Although the Wii U has been out for a while (with the NX on its way), Nintendo have promised to maintain steady support for its current system. Wink wink nudge nudge, Ninty…...

Ryu Amiibo Expected Early 2016

The birth of anticipation for Street Fighter’s leading brawler, took place in a Toy R Us store in the US. A Twitter account posted promo material that leaked the new Ryo Amiibo. I’m sure every other Wii U owner would agree, that what makes Amiibo’s so appealing, is the sheer amount of detail in such a small figure. Seriously, such detail is hard to find, even from top figure makers with models at 10x the price! Although still yet to be officially confirmed, we are seeing concept Amiibo art for the Evil Ryu, too. Let’s hope that goes ahead, especially if it’s available in more awesome fighting stances. We’ll soon be creating a special Amibbo request feedback page, so check back soon to have your say on future Wii U Amiibo figures!...

Will Nintendo NX Play WiiU Games?

Nintendo are currently dealing with one major question- When will the Nintendo NX be released (we get that feeling WWE were lucky to get to ‘NXT’, first). However, this actually begs a second question – What will happen to the Wii U? This question is possibly the most important one Nintendo will answer. Why? Well, because the question isn’t just asking about Nintendo’s future in hardware support…it’s asking about their future support to loyal customers. The way we see it, Ninty have two options, here: 1) Once Nintendo NX launches, continue support and development of Wii U games for at least 2 more years. 2) Develop the Nintendo NX so it’s fully backwards compatible with Wii U games. This could also setup some kind of WiiU trade-in campaign (or at least offer NX discounts if you submit your new WiiU console serial). We really hope Nintendo goes for the latter. The first options would simply spread Nintendo’s development rather thin. Let’s be honest, large games libraries have never really been Nintendo’s strongest quality, so having to develop 3DS and WiiU games, would mean launching the new NX hardware with less than half the company behind it. With DeNA helping Nintendo to bring some its most beloved games to mobile devices, we’re still pretty confident the NX could well double as a living room docking station console and a mobile/handheld. Have you had a WiiU since launch or are you contemplating buying one soon? Either way, let us know what one of the above options you’d profer to see, once the NX has been launched?...

PlayStation Plus is PS3

Those who sold their PS3 consoles for the PS4, may be starting to notice a pattern every month on Playstation Plus. Although full and well reviewed games always seem to hit the PS3’s Plus section…the PS4 is struggling with its free library. The reason is pretty straight forward. PS4 simply doesn’t have the library of games, just yet. Sony’s older console however, has a library so vast, there is plenty of content that’s no longer selling at retail (or digital) like it used to, so Sony have no trouble convincing the publishers to add their IP’s to Playstation Plus. The bad news is that it’s going to take a couple of years to start seeing a the real value of Playstation Plus on PS4. However, the good news is that Playstation Plus is pretty much selling the PS3! Those that are new to the console (or still have it but have sold/traded most of their collection) can pretty much subscribe, kick back and enjoy the buckets of free content! Still have your PS3? It may well be worth hanging on to it, to get the most out of PlayStation Plus....
