  • c_rakestraw posted a message in the forum topic Nioh/Bloodborne etc causing excessive stress?. on the Games Discussion board

    I find them kinda relaxing, actually? Not on the first playthrough, of course -- they're always very tense on the first run -- but they quickly lose their edge once you know what's coming and from whe...

    The thing that helped me was getting some ancient arrows to use once it starts trying to use those instant-kill lasers in the final phase of the fight. You can get some from the research lab in the no...

    Nice! Can't wait. Been dying to play more since the bit I tried at E3.

    @Planeforger said:The Wii U already has off-screen play for a lot of games, so why would you need to play it on a laptop?I would assume they're trying to play a game that doesn't allow the game to be ...

  • c_rakestraw posted a message in the forum topic Anybody here play the Spy Fox games?. on the Games Discussion board

    I think I played a demo for one of them when I was a kid. A lot of the Humongous Entertainment library was pretty good, from what I recall. Think they might have been my introduction to point-and-clic...

  • c_rakestraw posted a message on the post can you play Wii U on your Laptop?.

    Yeah, you'd need an HDMI-in port for it to work. If you've got a spare monitor sitting around with HDMI inputs, however (I think most monitors from the past few years have one), you could use that.

    @BranKetra: Yeah, for sure. What little I saw of it at E3 certainly looked like what everyone would want out of a Star Fox game, but it seemed like it was lacking that trademark Platinum Games flair. ...

    Oh man, I forgot that The Banner Saga 2 is out this month. Was so focused on Dark Souls 3 that it slipped my mind entirely. Dang it. Gotta find a way to get that somehow.

    @carlster: Understandable. Always gotta put your own spin on it, otherwise what's the point, right?I think the track is perfectly fine on its own, actually, it's just the paring with the video that ma...

    Sounds good to me! They would be properly credited as well, yeah? Metro: Last Light, PC. Dark Souls 2, PC.

  • c_rakestraw posted a message in the forum topic Why doesn't Nintendo extend to the mobile phone market?. on the Games Discussion board

    Nintendo's built their business around their consoles. You buy a Nintendo console to play Nintendo games, and taking those games away from their platforms devalues their hardware, thus throwing their ...

  • c_rakestraw posted a message in the forum topic Mass Effect Andromeda Trailer - new epic soundtrack!. on the Games Discussion board

    Not bad! Definitely captured the general feel of the score from past entries in the series, least from what I remember of it. Those opening notes especially felt like they'd have fit right in with the...

  • c_rakestraw posted a message in the forum topic Any chance of Demon's souls on ps4?. on the PlayStation Nation board

    I wouldn't say there's no chance of it happening, but given that the distribution rights are split between three or four companies, it'd be a nightmare to work out the logistics of who would obtain pu...

    @gamerboy100: But it is finished. Anyone who gets the international version early just doesn't have access to the online component because they won't get the patch that flips the switch on that until ...

    @freeformrulz: Well, since their current fiscal year ends in March, they could be using the staggered release to boost their revenue projections. Only reason I can think of for why they'd split the re...

    @Halloll: They haven't released it yet. The patch was applied to the Japanese version, but anyone who's bought the international version via the Xbox Store workaround won't get that patch until April ...
