  • BioWare boss polls fans on potential Mass Effect Trilogy re-make

  • Jac 07/11/2014

    No need for a remake on these since they were all released on pc and have been regularly sold as a triple pack on steam / PlayStation store etc.

    Much rather they invested their time in new games and I'm rather hoping this time next year we'll all be playing one.

    I've got panzer dragoon saga - had no idea it was considered rare. Fantastic game.

    Would never sell it or any of my other games from over the years as they form an unhealthily large part of my childhood memories :)

  • Why we need more developers like Zoe Quinn

  • Jac 31/08/2014

    No interest in any of the nonsense going on about someone's private life and haven't read all the comments but the title of the article is very poor from Eurogamer. Don't think anyone is really arguing with the content.

    From what I gather depression quest was actually developed by two people so why not name drop the other one as well or just use his name? Very very poor but job done so it seems judging by the comment count. The dailymail salute you.

  • Microsoft sells 8.2 million Xbox 360s in Q2

  • Jac 21/01/2012

    @Jay1983
    That's right - microsoft never talks about profit or reveals any financial information to its shareholders.

    I guess they're ashamed of the $23bn they made last year in profit and $27bn in actual cash and i guess eurogamer didn't really actuall write about it in the article.

  • Banjo-Kazooie 3 confirmed for Xmas

  • Jac 28/03/2008

    I've always found it hard to get excited about Banjo for some reason. I was never motivated to buy the first two despite the seemingly widespread acclaim.



    Most gamers view this as the last chance saloon for Rare's credibility but Viva Pinata suggests they havn't lost their touch by a long shot.



    Anyway hopefully it'll be good as the 360 needs a decent platformer and some more fluff.

  • Game controllers are too complicated

  • Jac 26/02/2008

    I wonder about developers sometimes. Shigeru Miyamoto was spouting the same nonsense a while back. The industry is obsessed with making games accessible for everyone in order to make more revenue but they surely risk alienating the 'hardcore' who actually have the mental capacity to use a controller with more than one button.



    I look forward to fable 2 then which will no doubt only ustilise the A button in every single situation making it far more fun than these ridiculous games that use other buttons as well.

  • X360 vs. PS3 Face-Off: Round Six

  • Jac 29/11/2007

    I don't understand why anyone would own a ps3 at the moment other than for unchartered which hasn't really grabbed me as a reason to shell out 300+. Give it a year or 2 and i'm sure it'll be worth owning (i'm quite excited about LA Noire) but at the moment i can't believe it is actually selling other than on name alone.

  • Assassin's Creed

  • Jac 13/11/2007

    This game was always going to disappoint from the moment they showed that video with the terrible combat, you could see it wasn't going to be up to it. It had the much potential to be one of the greatest games ever and even though 7 is a decent score, for a game with a concept like this it's catastrophic.



    They blew it.



    (The graphics are amazing however so pat on the back)

  • Football Manager 2008

  • Jac 12/10/2007

    Match engine aside most of the new features just seem to be old features that have been brought to the fore. The match flow as a main example is just the same screens as found in 07 but you now press a button to get to them in a certain order. The transfer centre is now just everything from the old transfer screen but on one page so you dont have to change from 'players in' and 'players out'. The team talks are still poor in my opinion, and other features such as getting told how many season tickets are sold are presumably just pulling already existing numbers from the database and converting them to word form. 'Features' such as this just seem easy to implement as do most of the new features. Even the scouting from last year is just putting numbers from the database into words, as is the coaching report from this year.



    Still a fantastic game but i find it hard to believe that a developer can dismiss peoples feelings towards the product with a list of 'new' features that frankly are rather similar to what was already in the game just re-branded.

  • Football Manager Live beta key giveaway starting soon

  • Jac 08/06/2007

    Well i'm still fuming. It's obvious people are gonna be angry when quite clearly the first 25 to visit the link did not neccessarily get a key.



    I was under the impression that my key was won and reserved as it said there were 25 left when i accessed the page. Surely a script could be made that only shows the 'claim freebie' screen to the first 25 to access it then all this rubbish would be avoided as there is no way i wasnt one of the first 25 to load that page and i dont gots no key!



    Total shambles. To take the bitterness to the next level i call for ip logs to be looked at or SI to run the beta as 2 x 1000 player worlds!

    Dunno why there's so much mario kart hate, i think the n64 version is about the best tbh- they got rid of the little hop you could do in the following games which just feels plain wrong. Diddy kong was a poor mans mario kart, a good clone(ish) but nothing legendary.



    Body harvest was awesome, easily up there on my best games ever list.
