  • Why Madden 15 is allowed to portray an athlete's tattoos

  • Kylun 06/06/2014

    This is a dumb as hell.

    Listening to a song in a game is... exactly like listening to a song, which you are expected to pay for.

    Seeing a tattoo depicted in a game is... nothing like actually having that tattoo on your arm - the thing you'd pay for.

    It's exactly like viewing a another persons tattoo, which is not something you'd be charged for... or at least if my friends started to charge for it, I'd rapidly have less friends... :)

    This is just misguided greed, ultimately. The line "It seems Escobedo is less adamant about getting money from when a tattooed person shows off their ink job on TV, in a magazine, or in a movie" effectively shows the hypocrisy. Trouble is, games have big money, and when there is big money, everyone tries to get their slice of the pie.

  • Spectrum Made Me

    @varkdm I had the Spectrum 128K too... was awesome. The only 128k games I had for it was a 128 version of Daly Thompsons (I think!) and Carrier Command. Carrier Command was so immense. God knows how they managed to get it into 128K, even! Took about 10 minutes to load tho... Reply +1

  • Nickelback singer slams Guitar Hero

  • Kylun 21/11/2008

    God I fucking HATE Nickleback, but the guy kind of has a point. If everyone who spent the same amount of time playing real and learning guitars instead of playing what is essentially a poor copy of a guitar, we would have better musicians and possibly more bands to get excited about.



    Replace "playing what is essentially a poor copy of a guitar" with; "watching football", "playing football", "cleaning dishes", "picking their nose", "pulling their thumb from their arse", "fucking Michelle" or whatever the fuck you like, and the point is just as applicable, but highlights it irreverance.

    I'm in a rock band - one of 300 active bands in Brighton. We've upwards of 5 different practice studios which are always booked up to the rafters. Why do I not get the impression we're lacking in bands? Venues - possibly, promoters - definately, drummers - unfortunately. But not bands.



    Funnily enough, Guitar Hero has inspired me to actually learn the Bass, and is now doing the same for Drums.

  • Xbox 360 Roundup

    Warhammer Battle is a table-top game - NOT a roleplaying game!



    Warhammer RPG is role-playing game!



    You can tell as there are clues in the name.



    Why is it game reviewers - people who are supposed to know about games, regardless of computer or not - can't distingish between two massively different types. It's like getting card games mixed with dice.



    This game can't display it's RPG roots, since *this* game doesn't have any.



    ... it's okay - I'm over it now... ;)

  • Xbox boss speaks out on ratings issue

  • Kylun 06/03/2008

    Lets invent a new rating system for every single different type of medium avaliable... having done that we could invent new rating systems for every time of delivery mechanism. Then after that, we could invent different rating systems based on genre, or possibly the type of art used on the cover of each box. Or maybe one based on the primary colour used on the art of the each box. And then, and then, and then....



    Or we all just use the BBFC - have a single source, with universally recognised symbols and standards.

  • SOE to revamp Galaxies Jedi system

    I expect they will keep it as difficult, but more relevant.



    I dunno what you lot are complaining about. If the old (crap) system was left in, you'd have something to complain about, but since SOE are obviously making a continued attempt to make the game better....?

  • Halo 2

  • Kylun 28/04/2003

    Not joking - walking home at five in the morning (having picked the X Box up at 12 midnight) it really hurt that blinking for the first time in five hours..... viral infections..... grrrr! Reply 0
  • Kylun 28/04/2003

    Can you go into further detail? I've never played Halo but from everything I've read it doesn't do anything new for the genre, although it is supposed to be a mighty fine game.



    Halo is simply a perfection of the simple FPS - no "real" gimicks just perfect gameplay. The AI is very intelligent, and like Tricky says - its more about strategy.... for example - the "little guys" often panic easily, lobbing a genade in their midst often scatters them, and you can then pick them off from cover, before contemplating the less panicky "big guys".... the level design in Halo is appauling, but somehow works in the fact that you spend all your time thinking about how your gonna kill the next lot, and not about the pretty graphics on a wall etc (just follow the arrow!).....



    The AI gives the opportunity for so many unique classic "remember that time when...." moments....



    Also the game is very "sober" - the controls are quite slow in their movenment - it means that while PC FPS collapse into random stuttering messes - the combat in Halo is considered and well thought out. (I know this isn't a great explaination...?!)



    When you play - remember to blink. I got an eye infection (for two bloody months!) playing Halo for the first time as I kept forgetting to blink.....



    It's also the only game that I've completed more than once (I'm on my forth time, now) :) And the co-operative story mode (on Legendary) is quite simply exquisite!

    "If you want to get into the industry then tester is the route"



    I've just had (a couple of weeks ago anyway) a second interview for a "Junior Games Designer" role. I'd _never_ do testing, paid or not! =] I've never worked in the games industry (although I am a Java programmer - dispite that being irrelevant) If you can convince them you can do the job, then do it. The best book I found on the subject is called "Getting into the Game" published by New Riders in October. It's quite good, although aimed at an American market.



    On the wages front - you make games cos you want to, not because it's gonna make you rich! IF I get this job it'll mean a 50% cut in pay - but f**k it - I'd rather be a poor Games Designer than a well off Java Developer. Anyday.



    Oh, yeah, and I am a firm believer that being a good designer means being a good designer - nothing to do with art, coding or testing. In fact, being a programmer, I think has been detremental in job applications - companies think once a programmer, always a programmer......
