  • Biggest Dutch retailer boycotts PSPgo

    I once knew a guy who was studying to work in the fashion retail market. He explained to me that 95% of all purchases are made based on the inward opportunity that the consumer recognises in potential growth. Each season the industry would notice a pattern - for every sale made profit would increase, loss sales and profit would decrease. This marketing phenomenon is called "The Verswayze Effect". Many insiders have challenge the theory however. The general consensus among all retailer experts aged 18-21 is that marketing is just a layman's way of saying "Who am I?", in other words we are all in the same ship, but each ship is it's own captain.

    I was quoting from Tycho from PA. My own writing style is almost unreadable. Like the scrawlings of a drunk 8 year old.

    So sadly I cannot take responsibilty for that quote, although I do agree with his sentiments.

    This does however absolve me from your "bell end" reference which I'm sure Tycho will gladly add to this collection online insults.

    Tycho says:

    This has been simmering on some tertiary heat source for awhile, and it may be time to serve it. When a classic game is re-released for digital delivery, by what criteria are they being reviewed?

    The reality, of course, is that in order to maintain healthy relationships with publishers you need to review their product - great, and small. This no-doubt includes "channels" like Xbox Live Arcade, which must be where these workaday, worthless reviews come from. In some cases there's simply no need (beyond the business realities alluded to earlier) for young men to toil in describing them, because these games are so elemental: they have two buttons, and one mode of movement. What is it? It is Xevious. End of review. The word even sounds like an adjective.

    These games are cheap, cheap, cheap, but ironically something that costs ten dollars and has a Goddamned demo is scrutinized more in terms of value. Is it Xevious? How much more Xevious should it have been to rise to the ten dollar level? Could, perhaps, the enemies enter the screen more Xeviously? The game appears to lose points in graphics and sound simply for being old.

    It isn't impossible to discuss fundamental games in a way that is interesting and valuable. But I don't know if plugging ancient games into the Hardcore Review Machine and outputting your stupid little number improves the world.

    Sounds interesting. Could go for a Prison Break style feel to it, with you being on the run but having to enter precarious situations to prove your innocence.

    I'd love the idea of a sandbox style fugitave game.

  • Top 50 Games of 2005: 50 to 41

  • Flightrisker 25/12/2005

    @ mathmos: (mostly) mature gaming forum, loads of xbox gamers:


    don't lose your rag here, it's not worth it, slate eurogamer on my forum, then come here to laugh at the sony comments fanboys ;)

    Slate eurogamer on another forum and then come back here to laugh at the Sony fanboys? That's mature? Man I hope I'm immature then!

    I'm in no way slagging the 360, I'm just saying that I have found the lauch games to be underwhelming. As a console I think it'll be great but for the moment I have no desire to buy one. About 9 of the 12 (approx, off the top of my head) games are multiformat titles that were not designed with the 360 in mind. They are ports with the graphics ramped up and not a true reflfection of what the console is actually capable of doing.

    Of the exclusive titles, PD, Kameo, Project Gotham, are either titles design initially to be on the Xbox, or updated versions of previous Xbox games. I do not know much about Condemmed, I presume it's an exclusive, but from the reviews it hardly seems to be a Killer App.

    I cannot expect a reasonable debate on the pros and cons of the 360 from someone called mrxbox, as it seems you have decided where your loyalties lie.

    The fact that you would make fun of the Sony fanboys, while clearly painting yourself as a 360 fanboy confuses me. Why do you feel so indebted to the 360 after it only being out a few weeks and having a dozen games?

    I am not a fanboy to any brand, although I do hold a special place for Nintendo because I grew up on their consoles but have not bought a DS or GC. What's wrong with just liking videogames?

    Again I will reiterate that I am in no way having a go at you or indeed the 360. I simply find your behavior odd.

    25-Dec-05 11:46:04 That's it...Eurogamer are a bunch of cunts and thet can ban me if they feel like it. Why slag off PGR3 so much and then put in a 'best of 2005' feature? It's NOT easy on PLATINUMN...it's just as hard as PGR2 was...for fucks sake guys...and yes I did PGR2 on Platinumn and have been playing driving games since they were invented so I know what the fuck I'm talking about unlike these wankers. Just be honest and say you don't like the 360 or anything to do with it. Bizzare create the most immersive driving experience ever seen (from in car-cam) and this is all they can talk about. Fucking arseholes. The windows in London aren't shiny = clutching at sony staws....

    I love clutching at sony staws.

    Dude, just cos someone disagrees with your opinion does not make them a cunt.

    I don't think even the biggest xbox 360 fans can say that for a new generation of console gaming, the 360 launch has been underwhelming.

    I'm sure there will be some fantastic games for the 360 and I think it has more than a fighting chance against the PS3. But that the moment it's just been rushed out with some games that could have been released on the Xbox with toned done graphics for £20 less.

    Have some eggnog and try and be more rational in your comments.

    Happy Christmas.

    I would give out but in fairness Final Fantasy last a lot more than 8% longer than most games anyway so fook it.

    As for Potion, sounds delicious!

    They should do a whole rang. Potion, then a 2L Potion called Mega-Potion, then X-potion , Phoenix Down* etc

    ...- the graphics allowed for a much higher level of immersion. The jump in graphics quality isn't as noticeable this time around..........Prettier graphics do not a 'next-gen' make,

    Which is it?

    If prettier graphic don't make a next-gen then why are you worried that the jump hasn't been as noticable?

    I'm not worried about the graphics side of next gen. For me next gen means letting me interact in new ways that technology is now along.

    Things like the Live service being expanded, the Revolution's pad, the DS's wifi capabilities.. these things are next gen to me.

    Mekah :How do you know if the games are great or not if you don't have one?


    Word of mouth.

    TV Spots.

    Through Friends or Family.


    All of the above.

    Sure I don't know there's no great games. But I have heard nothing but average to good reviews. There is no reason to buy this. Not because it's no "next-gen", but because it has lackluster titles, regardless of format.

    Roamer: Bah! When it comes to consoles - there should be an immediate and distinct difference between current-gen and next-gen. There was one between nes and snes, snes and ps, and ps and ps2. Why should this 'next-gen' be any different?

    Prettier graphics do not a 'next-gen' make, at this point; the current-gen hardware has been powerful enough to realise most developers' visions.


    So what was the non graphical difference between PS and PS2?

    I think we are all making the mistake of expecting the "16 bit 2d era" -> "32/64 bit 3d era" to be the norm. Mario Sunshine could have been done on the N64. Sure the graphics wouldn't have been as pretty, but where ws the "next-gen" leap?

    For the record, I think the 360 line up sucks. I have no intention of buying one until a great game comes out for it. I couldn't give a shit if it "delivers a next gen experience".

    Not sure if this has been mentioned but didn't a lot of the main team behind Goldeneye/PD leave and go on to make TimeSplitters? That's why I'm not too excited about PDZ, TimeSplitters seems to be the true lineage of the GE -> PD series. If I'm wrong about this then yay. Iloved PD and would love a great sequel.
