    Don't get me started on the DS. It's not fucking original, it's just been marketed well.

    Harry - you can counter mid-combo, in place of block.

    Pirotic - if you just keep hitting back and free against a good player you won't counter enough to make it worth while - they have halved the counter window for just that reason. The point of the counter is to get you on the offensive, it just starts with some damage. If anything, it forces you to mix up your style a little more than some games.

    Yeah, fuck the DS and the Revolution, let's stay in gaming mediocrity forever!

    How do you even know the Reolution is going to have any good games? You sound like the Sony boys talking up a machine they haven't even seen.

    I've got over 25 forumites on my friends list playing the 360 every day. But according to you, it's not worth playing. Stop being such a stupid troll everytime your fingers touch a keyboard.

    You don't like the 360. Fine. We get it. I bet you're the sort of person who massively anti-drugs without even trying them aren't you, because a friend of a friend collapsed at a party?

    Editted for swearing. I was angry.

    Are you serious? I know Nintendo is hardly exhibiting the first ever use of touch-screen technology, but you can't see originality in the DS? I'd like to know exactly which games and consoles it is aping, then.

    Revolution eh?

    You know when Miyamoto designs games he doesn't actually consider the hardware, Nintendo look at his ideas and then tend to make hardware around his designs - he said he wanted more accurate movement so they put an analogue stick on for him, he said he wanted easier camera controls so they put the C buttons on.

    It works in that you normally get one or two really unique games, such as Nintendogs - but as great as Miyamoto is, he is no longer enough to make a console successful, and by catering to his ever-more-outlandish game ideas in the end will just alienate Nintendo from every other developer.

    watch and see, revolution third party support will be terrible. They'll keep the meat and bones games on convential platforms and use the Revolution for low budget 'novelty' projects.

    But if you counter someone you attack them, so it makes sense. Maybe it just needs to be harder to pull off, and the parry take it's place currently.
    What, you mean like in VF4Evo? ;)

    There are plenty of obvious games that are being copied and 'tweaked'. I can't be arsed to go into it again, I've debated this often enough on here, and if I do it again Prof.Lesser will have a hernia.

    However, yes I do see originality in the DS - Another Code. Brilliant it is, just too short and other games need to follow suit.

    Just quickly, are you saying that there is no originality to the platform, because base ideas are being plagiarized, or just that the majority of games are lazily produced 'tweaks', rather than properly thought out?

    Heh, I guess your edit answers that - I can see your point a little more now.

    Oh, and btw, LOL at Derblington, yeah, Nintendo and marketing go hand in hand together really well, don't they?
    I bet Nintendo wishes they could do marketing well, that way they could have runaway successes like Pokemon, Nintendogs and the DS in general. Oh, wait...

    So this has gone from Pirotic writing a long rant , before saying its growing on him, while it being obvious that he likes the game enough to unlock secret characters and keep playing it - to blizeh insulting people who play games on the 360 and saying they have no brains for playing games they enjoy

    And you wonder why people come in and make idiotic fanboy comments

    /doesnt see the logic

    Anyway fellas, pay no attention to blize, remember his profile about not like Xbox owners? He's got one now.

    He loves you. You're on his favourite people list.

    Nggh. Interesting how 360 owners tend to stray from anything innovative.
    What makes you think I don't have one? Especially from my recent comments?

    You're looking more and more like a prat with every word...

    You are certainly not. I was rather unapreciative of the original xbox for games (mmm xbmc), but the 360 has given me much enjoyment despite the "unoriginal" concepts on it.

    I'm even enjoing a EA DEVELOPED GAME ffs

    I love this post, I mention your games list and then a jesting comment about it and linking it to 360's, and then you call me a prat for assuming you have one?

    When was the last time you checked your profile? ;-)
    No, I know you know I have a 360 as I'm posting in the DOA4 thread. What makes you think I don't have a DS? You obviously read as well as you think.
