  • Bungie not bothered by Activision's rep

  • Jackface 02/08/2010

    It's just hilarious that anyone genuinely thinks because Activision are publishing, the game won't do well because of the buying power of disgruntled geeks! The dent you will make by harbouring your grudge against the publisher will be so small as to be completely dwarfed by the buying power of the general public, who wouldn't know what you're talking about if you even asked them what Activision was.

    "I - along with doubtlessly many others - will not buy any product published by Activision any more. "



    Thankfully, there's only a few hundred at most people like you (angry geeks) who care enough about what Activision have been doing to actually stop buying their games. Most normal people on the planet that play games don't even know what you're talking about. Activision couldn't care less what you think as you are a tiny, tiny portion of their customer-base, and are you forgetting, it's Bungie? Whatever they make will rocket to number one in the charts, whoever's publishing it.

  • Retrospective: Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation

  • Jackface 01/08/2010

    "Hang on. Didn't the World Sanity Council agree several years back that all Tomb Raider games are shit and always have been? You can't ALL have had the mumps that day, surely?"



    Well seeing as they aren't all shit, I doubt it.

    Isn't slagging off this ending much like slagging off a movie in which the protagonist dies at the end? Or one where they show the ending first? The point of the game was to save the world. That achieved, Lara dies. Doesn't seem *that* stupid.



    Odd, negged for having the same opinion as most people in this thread. LOL you comments twats :D

  • Rare responds to fan site closure

  • Jackface 30/07/2010

    As for the love for Rare, it's more the love for Ultimate Play The Game, and love for Golden Eye. I can't think of anything else they've done that wasn't merely above average at best, even Perfect Dark, frankly. I suppose Viva Pinata was good fun. Their stuff is presented well but is all a bit scrappy to play, often.



    BTW, I seriously doubt Kinect Sports was Rare's idea. MS will have demanded a sports game to rival Wii Sports and will have turned to Rare to churn it out with their characteristic sugar-coated cosmetic polish.

    The Ultimate Emo Quit. What a bunch of whiners. So Rare don't make great games any more, and weren't prepared to indulge their fantasies of making a cutting edge 'expose' of the studio. Just grow up and move on, instead of this public show of toy-throwing. Reply +8

    "But then, I've demonstrably got more money than sense ... glances at iPhone 4, can't hold a bloody phone call (even with stupid bumper that arrived in the post yesterday)."



    That's a problem with where you live, then. You must have a shit signal reception in that area, because everyone but everyone acknowledges that even in worst case scenarios the bumper mitigates the reception issue so completely that calls stop dropping due to the 'death grip' when the bumper is used.



    Unless you're in a virtual dead zone, in which case nothing will help you, don't blame the phone.

    tomjoadsghost: "Basically, for me, the fact that they're still trying to justify the price as opposed to showing content that makes the price irrelevant is the most telling thing here."



    They're trying to justify the price because we've all gone batshit crazy about the price and presumably was specifically asked about the price by TechRadar, the people interviewing him.

  • Blizzard "probably very arrogant" - Jagex

  • Jackface 27/07/2010

    I must say it was a good move getting a dedicated news editor. Wesley has been pretty fast at getting new developments in the industry into the EG news column, much faster than it used to be.



    I realise this wasn't a Wesley post, but I just felt moved to comment in general. :)

    This entire diatribe of his is predicated on the fact that Blizzard now insists on knowing everyone's real names.



    Except, of course, Blizzard proposed it and was shouted down so they abandoned the idea.



    QED, this entire diatribe is just bullshit posturing.

  • Resi 5 Move only for Gold Edition

  • Jackface 27/07/2010

    I don't see the problem - the explanation appears to make complete sense to me. They can change the controls with patches, but they can't add support for entirely new control devices with the original game code as entirely new control devices weren't anticipated.



    I'm not developer and I suspect the majority of whiners/wieners here aren't either, but logically I don't see how patching existing controls if they were somehow broken on release equates to being able to add support for entirely new control systems. Am I missing something?



    Compare it to an expandable HiFi system. If the existing components on the amp need a fix, you take it to an engineer who does the fix for you. But if there's no slot on the back of the amp to plug in Shiny New Component That's Only Just Been Invented, no engineer is going to be able to cut a hole out and add the plug needed and wire it into the system and add new menus to the display that acknowledge the addition of the new hole - you need to buy an updated amp, that comes with empty slots that are designed to take new sockets if and when they become available.



    Same with RE5. The original didn't come with a slot in the code to accept new control patches. The revised version does.

  • Alan Wake: The Signal - Verizon

  • Jackface 27/07/2010

    I can't have been looking. Where was the massive screen-filling unavoidable clunky great Verizon logo? And why did you cut the video off as he says "Can you hear me now" which the reviewer said was as bad as the logo as it's their slogan?

    Honestly didn't grate on me nearly as much as it was pitched to. I think the Airwaves spots in that Splinter Cell game years ago were far worse.

    I think what comes across as tetchy in the text may well have been good-humoured in person. Text strips all the character from a persons voice.

    @Alf-Life



    I don't think I'd like the removal of Agent 47 at all. He may be a bald clone but he's got plenty of character and IIRC some of the game plots have been to do with his career longevity.

    Hitman is so awesome. I hope they stick to their guns in terms of the depth of the game and don't try for field-levelling 'accessibility' as that's arguably what messed up a lot of sequels of historically fantastic games recently. Reply +4

    krudster: looking at those confusing DSi/Wii point values, I reckon there's something in the idea of an article looking at all the methods of paying 'digitally' for software and seeking alternative ideas from people in 'the industry'.



    Although, it sounds familiar. Has it already been covered on EG?

    So 800 DSi points is equivalent to almost 8 and 700 WiiWare points is equivalent to almost 5.

  • Halo: Reach Xbox 360 bundle announced

  • Jackface 23/07/2010

    So you're paying $100 for the extras, including the game, which will probably cost $50 at retail itself. So $50 for the special design.



    Spose that's not tooooo bad. Still seems daft though.



    EDIT: Oh, you get an extra controller too. That's actually quite a good deal, apart from the fact it'll be bloody ugly ;)



    EDIT 2: wow, negged for... what exactly? Saying it's a good deal? Or saying it'll be an ugly machine? You people, you make me laugh! I actually upset someone with those words. Unbelievable. So sensitive! :D



    But it really is absolutely hideous, especially those pads.

  • No StarCraft II reviews before release

  • Jackface 22/07/2010

    serious question: how do you spend 7 years making a sequel to a RTS-game? is it more than just the old game with shiny new graphics and a few more multiplayer options?



    Well I suppose one distraction would be making the biggest, most successful and well known MMO in the world, and then maintaining that for the next half-decade as well as adding numerous huge expansions. That would keep you quite busy...

    "Not the sharpest knife in the draw are you?



    Read through the comments, and count up how many people have been made aware of this retailer's existence. "




    I hate to piss on your chips but I actually couldn't tell you the name of his shop and I've read all the comments. I saw a lot of references to a Mr Chips but I was assuming that was the name of the person they were speaking to as I hadn't really taken that bit in, I was more interested in what he had to say, having established he was the owner of a games shop.



    I still don't see your point. It's everyone else that's been playing with the name of the shop. It's mentioned just twice in the article, once to establish the credentials of the gentleman in question, and once later as an alternative jokey reference to the speaker again.



    Honestly, get over it.

    No seriously EG, fuck off with your advertising dressed up as news pieces.





    What the fuck does this mean? EG have comments from someone in retail slagging off the Kinect. That's a story. How is it advertising? Because it's about a product? How is news about a product therefore advertising?

    He pushes it that far because he's still passionate about them. To you it's just another game, to him it's his baby that he's been cultivating for years preparing it for you. He still cares about them even once you've played it and cast it aside once complete or you bored of it. I think this is a very, very good thing and we need more people with that level of passion in a position of such responsibility, a lot more. Reply +2

    "I just think it's equally ironic to attack a guy for commenting on a review - with nothing more than a verbatim quote - in the comments section of that same review."



    He posted a comment to complain about a spoiler in the review - fine, no problem with that. He also posted the spoiler that he was upset about in his comment, thereby denying anyone who had sensibly only skimmed the review for that exact reason the ability to avoid the selfsame spoiler.



    How is that even remotely ironic of me?! Yes, he posted a verbatim quote - that's the point and you even acknowledged it yourself by tagging your own spoilers. If he had made the comment and not posted the quote, or tagged it like you did, there would have been no comment from me! AT ALL.

    Analysts are paid huge amounts to do little more than make educated guesses using exactly the same source material we all have access to, and occasionally some sales figures we don't have access to but to which they can make their desired 'claim' stick to no matter what, really. When they get it wrong, they ignore it and 'revise their outlook'.



    I wanna be one. I'd get it right exactly the same amount of times.
