  • Thomas Was Alone review

  • Fletche 01/05/2013

    Great game, been playing it here and there over the last week and have grown to love my little square and rectangle chums, amazing how something so simple can put pictures in your head so all credit to the narrative on this, will pick up the expansion pack soon as I agree in the review, really want something more challenging with my new friends Reply +1

  • The Walking Dead review

  • Fletche 23/11/2012

    GOTY for me, unless episode 5 is a let down, which looking at the reviews it won't be. Just a great journey from start to err, nearly the finish and I will be playing again and making different choices just to see where the story goes Reply 0
  • XCOM creator Julian Gollop "surprised and puzzled" by calls for Chaos remake

  • Fletche 05/11/2012

    One of my favourite games of all time, the amount of hours I have spent in my life playing this are huge, great game and I loved the quirky bugs, always entertaining when a giant rat was suddenly able to move 20 places and kill a golden dragon.

    A remake would be the best thing ever (well, kind of) please don't lose what makes the original so great though, simplicity. Oh and the magic knife animation always looked a bit phallic.

    Well Mrs Fletche decided to have a birthday this week so we are going away BUT hopefully this will be there waiting for me on my return at the weekend, new 4pl co-op session already planned to start next Thursday. Gaming has left me cold this year but now I am excited all over again Reply 0

    Is there a Mclaren pit-stop power up that makes all the wheels on the other cars fall off?

    I have kinda fallen out with games this year but this and Borderlands 2 may make me love them again

  • Spectrum Made Me

  • Fletche 27/04/2012

    @krayzkrok After reading this artical I went to http://chaos.ffnet.org/play_chaos.php and had a game or two. Me and my mate would spend hours with this, as buggy as hell but that just added to the fun. Reply 0
  • Fletche 24/04/2012

    I had a ZX81 first but soon moved on to a Spectrum as soon as I could. Way too many happy memories, from the sound made when the game was loading, to getting my first Kempston joystick (I remember being sooo happy when I got that as a birthday present)

    Favourite games would include Booty, Chaos (Still play that today) and TLL amongst others. Your Sinclair was my magazine of choice although if I ever had enough pocket money then I would always buy Crash too, reading the reviews was as much a part of owning a Spectrum as was playing the games.

  • Games of 2011: Dark Souls

  • Fletche 29/12/2011

    No game has managed to hold my attention as long as this one has for a very long time.

    I actually thought I wouldn't get on with it after hearing about the difficulty, but once it clicks and you get to grips with the mechanics, it becomes a joy, yes you die, but that just makes you more determined so you try again, and you die again, but now you have more knowledge and so on

    The elation you feel when you defeat a boss you have been trying to kill for a long time is like nothing else in gaming, you get a similar feeling when you have levelled a little and then go through an earlier area, only this time you are one killing everything and it feels great (Until you get over-confident and get a arrow in your head or you fall backwards off a cliff)

    GOTY for me, nothing else has come close

  • Keith Vaz pushes Parliament to debate gaming's "harmful effects"

  • Fletche 09/12/2011

    Vaz supported this latest request with research published last week by the University of Indiana. It purportedly showed that regularly playing games "resulted in physical changes in the brain"
    Yes it does, as does pretty much everything you do in life, it is called learning, ok maybe not learning something important but the brain doesn't know that (stupid brain)

    I told him to bugger off. Upon talking to him again, he reintroduced himself as if the conversation hadn't just happened. A simple "Have you changed your mind?" would have sufficed.
    To be fair exactly the same kind of thing happened in Mass Effect 2, although it did annoy me.

    "Risqué adventure game Catherine has topless female demons"



    Good



    "Another scene briefly depicts a woman caressing her body while making suggestive comments," the ESRB revealed: "'I've got such a hunger for these feelings. I know you have some hungers as well, don't you?'"



    That is considered suggestive? They could be going out for a meal or something

  • Sony details "Welcome Back" offers

    So this means because I already own Wipeout if I go online soon I may actually win a race or two as there will be loads of new people! Happy days (before they all get really good that is)



    Infamous and Ratchet for me, a good list as far as I'm concerned, Sony would have been criticised no matter what, unless it was 5 brand new games.

  • Retrospective: The Good Old Days

  • Fletche 15/05/2011

    BMX Simulator was excellent, 2 players, instant replays when you crashed, me and my mate back then used to play this all the time alongside Chaos. Also just downloaded Booty to play on my phone, great game apart from the music which drove you insane after a short while Reply +1

    Indeed, who's to say this isn't Anonymous looking for a window of opportunity to further slurry the name of Sony? A post here, a rumour there, all of a sudden it's all over the internet, hey if they didn't actually hack the servers they can at least get some satisfaction from doing damage to the enemy

    "With so much of the game dependent on timing, the stop-start formula can become as much of a curse as it is a blessing"



    Why? It just means there is a further element added to the game. Anyway, like Explodemon a lot and loved the Blob demo so perhaps will be getting that, is The Undergarden demo still up on the US Store? Along with Stacking, downloads have been great so far this year and with a lot more to come!

  • Stacking

  • Fletche 10/02/2011

    Put simply, this game is marvellous. I love the design, from the visuals to the silent movie cut-scenes, it also has some of the most appropriate music I have heard for a long time in a game.



    Ok, the puzzles aren't that difficult, but the fun is getting there, instead of just wading in and solving them straight away I prefer to explore, stacking myself into as many dolls as I can, seeing the effect my new power has on various other dolls (try the widow on the doll in the train station lounge for example).



    So a funny, clever little game that I got for free and whilst it won't take long to complete I think I will have a great time getting there if the first two levels are anything to go by

  • The Last Word on LittleBigPlanet 2

  • Fletche 21/01/2011

    @M1chl



    No, but you would expect 10/10 again if everything is bigger and better than the first which got 10/10, it does seem to be very hit and miss with reveiwers to whether they use a previous entry in a series to gauge if the sequel should be marked down or not.



    We may as well expect a 6/10 for Dead Space 2 on EG even if it better than the first because time passed, things changed etc.

  • The Last Story not heading west

  • Fletche 13/01/2011

    I like my Wii, don't play it much these days but when I do I generally have a great time with the limited games on offer (Well limited games in that there are few released that appeal to me) so I find this very disappointing as I have had my eye on this for a while now, do they really feel this wouldn't sell over here? Then again maybe not is other 3rd party offerings have anything to go by.



    Our own fault I suppose, we haven't purchased enough 3rd party games in the past to warrant companies risking a release over here. Hopefully this will be picked up by someone just like Little Kings Story (excellent game no one bought)

  • Journey dev: shooters are "not useful"

  • Fletche 13/01/2011

    @redcrayon - But when you go out for a walk with friends there are many mysterious buildings in the distance to aim for



    He has a point, online MP I feel has become a little stale, especially in the FPS genre, it can be fun but when you have played so many of them any feeling of achievement is dulled somewhat. It would be nice to have something different to aim for, no idea what, but more emphasis on reaching different types of targets would be good, especially in co-op would be a start.

  • Games of 2010: A Shadow's Tale

  • Fletche 28/12/2010

    Excellent game, with great control and atmosphere, no, not GOTY but certainly worth a purchase for any Wii owner who would like something different.



    So for me, it doesn't get boring quickly, the levels designs get better and more complicated the further you and it is consistantly throwing more gameplay elements at you and the only way this even tries to be like ICO is with the visuals, even then, once inside the castle that really isn't the case.



    But one thing, if this was available as a HD download people would love it and actually buy it, maybe it is over-priced but still a top game

    Yes it does, go to options and change them, can we have a "How to do stuff in GT5" feature? I will admit though thatt the interface can be confusing at first, gets easier as you go along though :o)

    "Have to go to garage (which is poorly designed) and select a valid car before entering an event"



    Eh? You go to the event click on Garage and select a car, the only cars that are listed then are the one relevant to the race, how is that poorly designed?

  • Rare responds to fan site closure

  • Fletche 30/07/2010

    Rare were great, Rare had great ideas, Ultimate had great ideas, for years gamers looked to them for innovation, games with something extra, something special. Looking at this video actually makes me feel a little sad as we are seeing what a once great company can be reduced to when money takes over from imagination. That video is diabolical, from the people in it, to the actions they are having to perform, Rare should hang their heads in shame, or slap each other about a bit. Might make them wake up from the MS comfort zone they find themselves in.



    Also, I thought you had to be a distance away from the camera with Kinect to make it work properly? These people seem mighty close, unless the camera has been nailed into the wall behind the TV or something.
