  • Nintendo on Wii Sports 2 rumour

  • Bates 28/12/2006

    Wii Sports was more fun than just about anything I've played on the 360, and it was a launch title, AND it was free! I've never seen a game suck in people who usually don't give a shit about games as Wii Sports has with people I've gotten to try it.



    All they need to do is bundle another Wiimote with WS2 and it's good times all around.

    Nice article there so it is.



    Oh, and just a quick LOL at LeDilletwat once again, who reeks of pure desperation once again. Always amusing to see. "I'm buying a PS3" indeed. Always far too easy to spot the agenda vomiting bullshitters :D

  • Eurogamer's Top 50 Games of 2006: 20 - 11

  • Bates 28/12/2006

    Tomb Raider Legend is on this list? What a load of shit. Plus, the fact that so many DS games that should be in the top ten aren't says all I need to know about this list's credibility.



    I'm betting that turd Gears of War will be number one, won't it? What a joke.

  • Red Steel

  • Bates 28/12/2006

    FPS games are shit on control pads, no two ways about it. They simply do not come close to keyboard and mouse, but the Wiimote is almost as good imo. Certainly a whole fuckload better than any joypad I've ever used for them. Red Steel isn't perfect, but it was still a lot more fun than any 360 FPS yawn-a-thon I've had the misfortune of being exposed to, that's for sure. Sure shows up how pathetic fluff like Perfect Dark Zero is really.



    As launch games go, this is a lot better than most.

  • Sony 'overreached' on PS3 Blu-ray production - Harrison

  • Bates 06/11/2006

    lol Rambaldi, are you seriously trying to pretend the Xbox has been anything other than a dead format for the past 12 months? All the cheap multi-platform token titles mean nothing when the actual MAKER of the console has dropped it like it was a disease. Where has Microsoft's support for the Xbox been since the 360 came out?



    "With only £20 difference I think it might be more of a wet fart instead of a dumping,"



    20? Try 100. Unless you're seriously trying to suggest the core pack is actually going to make a difference? :D In fact, I'm betting Nintendo shift at least as many Wiis in it's first six months as Microsoft will shift 360s in it's first year. Looking likely right now.



    "but I'll leave that point of clarification to the expert on excrement"



    That I am, I can spot bullshitting xbots from a mile off :)

    "P.S At least MS supported the Xbox right up until the 360 launched: what the hell have Nintedo been doing for the GC apart from delaying Zelda for over a year?"



    What! The last "support" MS showed for the Xbox was with that awful "Conker" port they put out... in August... 4 months before the 360 got released.



    Nintendo have shifted focus from the Gamecube to the DS this past year. A smart move, as they freely admit the Gamecube "failed"(If you can call it a failure considering it did just about as well as the original Xbox), and the DS has been the best selling console everywhere the past year.



    Also, I agree that price is an issue, which is why the Wii is going to dump all over the 360 when it comes out :)

    Whoa whoa... out-innovating you say? Did I miss something or are there still some ideas left for you to steal from Sega that I've forgotten about? :D

  • PS3 Online: How It Works

  • Bates 15/10/2006

    lol, yeah, big time sonyboy me!



    It's pretty funny that you're trying to pretend as though there's some danger of you actually buying a PS3 by claiming that you will 'if the online is better than the 360's', when you KNOW very well it isn't ever going to be though. Nice smokescreen.



    It's pretty clear many of the posters in this thread are agenda spewing Xbots with no intention of ever buying a PS3 anyway, but it is ever so amusing to see them carry on as though this computer games console has them scared shitless :p



    edit: LOL, and as if to prove my point about agenda serving fanboys, here's Jim Davids... er... I mean Rambaldi right on cue!

    The biggest idiots are people who make posts like this of course. Eh, doesn't matter I guess, as effinwooly is just a trolling Xbot(An Xbox fanboy, trolling?!?! Never thought I'd see the day!). So you just insulted one of your own :)



    Still found this game a bit balls on PC. It'll probably be even more rubbish played using a joypad too. If you have an FPS and don't have a keyboard and mouse, there really is no point. :)

    "I don't think Xbox owners are concerned, It's the Sony camp who every now and again decide they should twist the knife and remind us how our console will be redundant in a few years due to lack of storage... FUD, I think they call it."



    Hah! What utter bollocks! If you Xbots were so 'unconcerned' you wouldn't be desperately attempting to rubbish Blu-Ray at every turn because (boo hoo) you somehow think it makes your favourite console inferior. Talk about insecurity!



    Smokescreen with that bullshit about how "it's always those darn Sony fanboys that start it, I'm just reacting! It's all their fault!" all you want, but when I read these pages, I never see anyone claiming the higher capacity on the PS3 makes the 360 obsolete in any way(Save for the rare obvious troll like Captain nippon or whoever the fuck), just lots of Xbots whining about how this is what Sony fanboys claim. Are these fanboys invisible or something?



    Xbots are fine ones to talk about FUD when they're clearly the unquestioned MASTERS of it! :D

    "Therefore, it's similar to a parent-child relationship. Unconditional love."



    Kind of like Halo with Xbots then?



    Also rather amusing to watch fanboys who've probably never played a MGS game slate it and champion Splinter Cell purely because of what console the games are on. Not transparent at all :D



    Splinter Cell is the kind of snail's pace, anal, unimaginative overrated drivel I'd fully expect would appeal to the botboyz more. All it needs is to have the word 'exclusive'(T3h bezt wurd evah!1!) plastered all over it to make all the more awesome! And waddayaknow...

    First game was more or less trash. The very definition of a completely disposable launch game. This one looks... er... exactly the same...



    Unless Namco... sorry... "Namco Bandai" have done something major with the game, I can't see it being worth the effort. There are better racers around.

Dumbed down lowest common denominator trash of the worst kind! Unforgivable! And King Kong as a Jack Black vehicle? Fuuuuuuck!
