  • Tomb Raider dev making Soul Reaver reboot - rumour

  • Kon 20/03/2012

    All I can ask for is that Michael and Simon reprise their original roles. Get that and I'm all in.

    ...and a companion piece in the style of Guardian of Light wouldn't hurt either.

  • Namco bringing Shinobido 2 to Vita

  • Kon 26/08/2011

    NICE! Loved the original on PS2. Having the benefit of 2 sticks on the Vita should relieve the biggest problem the last portable version had.

    I do wish more Acquire games got published over here though. So many odd and quirky games that I never get to play leave me a sad panda.

    Any word on how this business of releasing both the censored/uncensored versions of the game is going to work out? From looking over RS's forums all I see is them being very cagey on releasing any actual information on this.



    Most likely we'll just get the censored version again under the pretext that it is the "original vision" of the game.

    Great news. I want all three games and now I don't have to bother importing. Well done KOEI.



    Now please don't forget to have someone go to the trouble of removing the game ending bug before the final boss that was reported in the US version of Ar 2.

    @remo



    Your logic, if one could call it that, has more flaws than I can care to count.



    "Eurogamer is snobbish which affects its scoring. And when its not being snobbish its being political. I haven't trusted it's scores for the last 2 years."



    yet you still bother to visit, read the reviews and comment on them,



    "BUT, I do like some of the reviewers and I like this review of Pic Pic"



    Really? Who was it that was bitching about the score this obscure game got about one page back then?



    "My problem was not with the reviewer but the fact that a highly personal and subjective review appeared sanctioned by Eurogamer when 99/100 people wouldn't give this a 10."



    W.T.F.?! You don't trust the reviews here so what do you care? Do those 99 friends of your feel the same?



    If I must educate you, good reviews ARE supposed to be personal and subjective. That is why you should follow reviewers rather than a website. Still, you want a strictly objective review? How about this then :



    Picross DS

    Graphics = basic, functional

    Sound = elevator tunes

    Stability = no crashes observed

    Controls = work, require stylus

    Final score = X/10



    Lovely innit?



    Also, Eurogamer is a name so it doesn't sanction shit.



    "Its like me running Empire magazine and doing a top 100 films and making BMX Bandits 'The Greatest Film Ever', just because I personally think it is. There needs to be a general agreement among the staff that it really deserves to receive that accolade. "



    So, will we have someone playing a game for 10 to 100+ hours, write a review and then gather the rest of the staff who didn't play the game nearly as much or at all decide if they agree before posting it, OR, do we have a rule stating that each and every EG staffer must play the same games for the same exact amount of time and later discuss their opinions on it until they reach a consensus before a review is written and published?



    Wait, maybe we can have robots from the future do it. Thats it!



    "I can see that this is going over your 12 year old spotty heads, so I'll give up."



    I have no idea if you're older or than me or not, but you sure are a hell of a lot more stupid. Are you just a middle age dumbass or has senility set in already?

    The score 10 Nazi strikes again.



    Ever consider that maybe the reviewer doesn't see the games in exactly the same light as you? Perhaps since you've put so many hours into these games you would care to enlighten us with a proper analysis as to why they are undeserving of the score they got.

    Curses! I saw the headline on this and I immediately felt my heart sink. There are far too many great games coming out and far too little time and money to get and play all of them.



    Well, Slither is still one of my favorite puzzlers and I have Mr. Walker to thank for that so I guess its time to hit up Play.com again...

  • King of Fighters Collection unveiled

  • Kon 16/10/2008

    "They couldn't put '99 in there, as that is the first part of the NEST's saga, and tis is the Orochi saga.



    Looks like we'll have to wait. "




    The Orichi saga spans three titles, this collection includes five. I would prefer completion to a false pretense of storyline cohesion any day of the week.



    Seeing as KoF 2000/2001 was already released, by Ignition no less, they already published 2/3 of the NEST's saga. I don't think they will be doing another release that includes KoF99 so that will probably leave that game as the only one unpublished here. Speaking of which, where's Mark of the Wolves?

  • Kon 16/10/2008

    May as well have put '99 in there and have the whole collection out on PAL territories. Well, just as long as they don't pull a Metal Slug on the PS2 version I'll be sure to get it when it's out, which judging from the announcement to actual release ratio of SNK titlles by Ignition over the last year or so it could very well be by the time the PS4 rolls out.

Sadly, being the lazy git that I am I really can't say I'm looking forward to spending hours standing up in front of the telly so I guess that since there wont be an option to play with a regular controller I'll probably give this one a pass. A shame really that Camelot decided to skip putting (yeah, I know) the option in the game. Reply 0

  • Time Crisis 4

  • Kon 14/04/2008

    @Rodafowa



    Those are two very different games.



    Ghost Squad is much like the arcade games of old, as it's simple and short. The story is just there for the sake of it. A good choice if you don't mind getting only a few hours of game out of your purchase. Its also good for a quick fix play.



    Umbrella Chronicles take a different approach with very long stages (a single stage can take longer to get through than a complete play of ghost squad), various weapons to use at once, a more involving story complete with documents to read and plenty of cut-scenes.



    Either are also good fun with a second player.

    @Vice.Destroyer



    Virtua Cop 2 was converted to home consoles. There's a great version of it on the Saturn and you can also find it for the PS2 via Virtua Cop Elite Edition (PAL only). There's also a version for winPC but these days you'll be hard pressed to find a setup where you can play it properly with a light gun (use a mouse). As always Ebay is your best bet to find such games.

    Indeed, but unfortunately it just doesn't work or feel the same, no matter how many plastic contraptions for the wiimote they come up with. Still, its better than nothing.

    I love me some shooters of this ilk so I'm sad that TC4 didn't perform well enough (technically) to spark the genre back to what it was during the the early to mid PS2 years.



    Having purchased a new CRT last December so I can still play my PS1&2 shooters as they were meant to be was in hindsight a very smart move. Now if only Sega would bother themselves to port Ghost Squad and HOTD to the PS2...

    This probably means that Yakuza 3 should be in the cards too. Neat! :)



    So while we're in this sort of mood how about someone picking up the new PS2 twisted metal game for a PAL release? Just don't bother if you're going to cut content again though.

    Perhaps if you didn't have the writing skill of a six year old there wouldn't be any problems trying to understand exactly what you're trying to say. I've read each of your posts three times and I'm still not sure where you're getting at. Punctuation might have a little something to do with it.

    Awesome game IMO. The anchor system gives it a fresh take on the genre and in fact works quite well in that it's easy understand but has enough depth that you can always use it a little better and score a little more.



    I can only hope that more games as good as this one will get a release in the future. ESPrade, Ibara or even Zero Gunner 2 would make me giddy as a girl if they ever saw the light of day.



    Whatever happens though, for me Gradius V is still king of the castle.

    Shock and awe! I was expecting to see the game ripped to shreds like its been by every other review out there.



    Personally I think 8/10 is a little generous, but the review itself is smack on the mark. I will probably play this compilation nowhere nowhere near as much as I did the Mega Drive conversion of the first game, but for the low price this serves as a great nostalgia piece.



    Now when can I get my hands on SNK Arcade Classics vol.1?

    Though I enjoyed the DS version, the game just got too difficult for me a little more than half-way through.

    Considering the not very kind review New Blood received from 1UP and now the confirmation that this is very much a 2p game I don't much fancy my chances of making it very far into this one either. Oh well, maybe I'll take a look at it if I can find it for cheap one day.



    That said, here's some awesomeness for all you Trauma Center fans.

    "ah but the dialogue in symphony of the night is actually worse than the original - they didn't re-translate from the japanese or anything, all they did was take the english dialogue from the ps1 version and rewrite it to make it much blander, then give it to the same crappy voice actors to re-record it."



    Humm, no. I forget where exactly I saw it (gametrailers maybe) but Koji Igarashi himself made it clear in an interview that he over viewed the new translation, so it wasn't some ethereal "they" that was in charge of the it. Also, the voice actors aren't the same ones that did the original's voice work, that much should be quite obvious if you play both versions now.
