  • America's Army US-only

  • Moogrose 13/06/2007

    all the usual EG peep bullshit aside, i for one am rather dissapointed... was looking forward to this.

    however the orginal americas army game was released over here, so why do this now? i can't believe they would let down such a large market, certainly for GRAW anyway... very odd.

    EDIT: I crap at english

    @Leviathan: I understand where you're coming from, to an extent. but i don't measure the value of a product by how much time, money and expertise went into making it...

    i can tell you this, i have gotten far more value from my 45 euro purchase of worms then i did from my 60 euro purchase of gears of war. but thats just me, its all personal you see... but my point stands, that anything under a couple of euros to the likes of gamers who spend the kind of money gamers do on the next gen systems, it's just not alot of money. at all.

    that said, to you perhaps its not worth it for the value and pleasure you derive from this "re-hashed" version of worms, well then, thats on you isn't it? and thats ok... but you can't convice me that its pricey.

    i fail to see how you can see these new maps as expensive, i bought the psp version of worms for 45 euros... and i bought the orginal download of Worms XBLA for under 10 euros... a couple of extra euros for some new maps seems fair.

    that said, at under 2 euros a map i'm not quite sure that expensive is even the right word - in the netherlands, where you pay to take a pee in a public place, thats worth about 3 bathroom breaks.

    cheap bastards.

  • Worms

  • Moogrose 19/03/2007

    just my 2 cents, but i think its a fantastic game - i also own the psp version, but this just looks fab on a high-def telly. the mrs and i have had a good 'ol time of it together on the couch, and had a couple of solid online games.

    best XBLA title to date, and its a sin that a game like pacman gets a 8 while this gets a 6 - absolutely nuts.

  • PS3 Home began on PS2

  • Moogrose 13/03/2007

    @disc and beano

    fair points both, and i agree. on beanos point... i just don't think its the most effective way to get people playing games, which is why i find it still slightly dubious.

    ulitmately i hope sony implement a xbox live like system on top of, or next to, home - for me the the whole idea of home is just a turn off.

    which is probably what it comes down to - personal preference. and yes, i agree - its fantastic they have it for the casual gamers out there, i just hope we have the choice for that - or a more integrated, live like system to work with.

  • Moogrose 13/03/2007

    Which is exactly why they unveiled it at the GDC, and why they were talking about that aspect of Home at it's first unveiling.

    We may see more of what we the consumer end, get out of it in more detail at E3.

    Point taken... but sony are milking the good press to the consumer, for me that good press is still without foundation.

    no its not the same thing though is it. look, firstly i do apreciate that sony is stepping up and doing something online... i'm just not sure the direction is right. if you still have to jump out of games to go chat with a buddy or do an invite then whats the point really? - i'm holding back still to see what exactly they come up with, but as it stands it looks like a very spiffy marketing gimmic.

    this is how sony is selling it to publishers, take a read of the pdf on sonys site for 3rd party relations: Third Party Relations.pdf

    am i one of the few that just doesn't get it. i mean if i want to play a game - then i'll go play a game, if i want ot watch a video, i'll do that - why should i want to walk around in some virtual world to do so.

    i've not seen anything that it actually adds to any experience, it merely distracts - and it's a great advertising oppurtunity for the publishers...

    it just strikes me as silly is all.

  • Moogrose 28/02/2007

    yes yes... the point for me is not only when the content is coming (so close to release) but the amount of points attached to said content so close to release (and for a one SP map and one MP map and some new war machines)...

    even 400 pnts would be more reasonable considering...

    i'd also imagine that this may split the MP game again into those who have it and those who don't, which also strikes me as odd, again - so close to release.

  • Moogrose 28/02/2007

    i do love this game, it is excellent once you get the hang of it... but its as short as shit in SP and most of the MP maps are uninspired, although still good fun... i would say that this close to its release, asking 600 points for this content is taking the piss... IMHO. Reply 0

    All the good 'ol levels from the previous two games.

    Looks good too for a psp game.

  • Wii outsells PS3 in the USA

  • Moogrose 11/12/2006

    ANother in a long line of misleading reports from the media.

    MS sold as many 360s as they could ship. (@$300-$400)
    Ninty sold as many Wiis as they could ship. (@$250-ish)
    Sony sold as many PS3s as they could ship.(@$500-$600)

    Thought your prices were misleading ;)

  • PS3 software tie-in ratio rubbish

    its probably more to do with people buying it for blu-ray movie use rather than games..

    now that will fuck sony

    Um, considering they have a great deal of interest in blue ray succeeding (and collect royalties on each disc)... i don't think it will actually - you know - fuck them.

    its worth it.

  • 360 has the advantage - Ubisoft

  • Moogrose 01/11/2006

    By the way, does anyone else think Wii is not that good value for money from a purely hardware point of view?

    Yes, at 250 euros its only 50 euros cheaper then the 360 core... which is a bit of a joke considering whats inside each. I reckon microsoft should drop the core price by 50 euros and take advantge of that.

    That said, Tiger Woods 07 has to be the fugliest launch title - and it is identical to the 360 version to boot. For some reason, the 'next gen' versions look crap even compared to the current gen versions.

    I'm not sure you've played the current and next gen versions with a statement like that... the 360 version is without a doubt much prettier (with large crowds to boot).

  • CoD still tops Live chart

  • Moogrose 09/10/2006

    Whens all said and done though, they're not really claiming anything are they? They're just saying, look - this is what we got off live... there you have it. the most popular games played while connected.

    most people obviously are connected, even when playing single player games - otherwise those games wouldn't be there... the comparison stands.

  • Moogrose 09/10/2006

    @cooljam... whats your point exactly? they are reporting the top games played while connected to live... which is assured to be relevant for the greater group that make up 360 gamers.

    its like a poll, you ask a few thousand people and that generally reflects the view of millions... so it is.

    Free on the PC... coming soon to an Xbox 360 near you for 1200 points (10.80)!

    I own the 360 version, and play regularly so i know what you're saying but wish you could let it go (although i felt it not to be a huge issue - affordable) but the pc version was released being quite unfinished, with very few maps, and a couple of play types.

    consider it a patch

    The issue for me is the first bit... the animations look unique to each NPC, which would be a real step forward if thats the way its gonna work.

    The graphics look marvelous... i can't see why it wouldn't be real time. all that said, with the last MGS game i played a little bit of me died inside praying that the endless dialog would stop.

    yes yes, i get it. not my game.
