  • Games of the Generation: Street Fighter 4

  • Nath_monn 28/10/2013

    This game got me and a friend through a difficult period of unemployment. We both look back fondly of the days where all we cared about was pulling off a perfect ultra/super, or breaking a chain of jumps!

    Street fighter on face value is just a graphically stunning fighter, but the more time you sink into it you discover the subtlies! I think it definitely helped having a friend who started as equally rubbish and we grew strong on the streets.

    Easily in my top 5

    This was a triumph.

    It's hard to overstate my satisfaction.

  • BioShock 2 retrospective

  • Nath_monn 08/04/2013

    Bioshock, as good as it was, took me around 6 months to complete. I completed the sequel in around 48 hours, I was so engrossed and infactuated by it, I couldn't put it down. For me it delivered everything the first installment did, but improved on it, like many mentions in here a larger array of plasmids, improved mechanics, vaster scale of exploration, even the twist was a nice touch.

    With bioshock being one of my favourite IPs, I'm admittedly a little bias, but I don't see why so many people disliked it, or skipped over it. Hopefully this retrospect will convince people to pick it back up

  • The Walking Dead sells by the morgue-load

  • Nath_monn 07/01/2013

    For anyone saying the game is better than the TV show, and have yet to read the comics, please if you take one peice of advice from me, ever, go read them now.

    It's easily the best story I have ever read, I truly cherish the moreish addiction of Ricks events. So much so I'd probably say its more enjoyable than the show, which I adore too!

    Just walked by my (hanley) comet, and what a depressing sight, really barebones, and full of vultures. I was going to pop in but decided against it as it was just too bleak!

    The guy on the door selling plug sockets for 10p and shouting "filter bags that sell for 10 on eBay for 90p" was a sign for me to keep walking on

    So how come this document had to be published? I know there's beef with the old IW staff but what's that got to do with bungie?

    I do feel a bit sorry for bungie getting caught up in this, but I guess if you go dancing with the devil...

    Also I wouldn't be surprised if Xbox are screwing, I mean it's more or less revealed that there will be the next box for autumn 2013, right? Kinda outs their E3 plans too.

  • The Big GAME Shutdown: An Insider's Account

  • Nath_monn 05/05/2012

    I had the pleasure of knowing David from working at Crewe Gamestation whilst he was at Crewe Game, he was one of the most passionate folk to be working the front line, and I could tell he was proud to be holding the position, an asset to the company really. Unfortunately the closure of Game/Gamestation stores, it's honest folk like Jennings that suffer the most.

    Brilliant read Dave, and thank you eurogamer for publishing it, one of the best articles on here for a while. Hopefully this article has given Dave a decent stage to voice is frustrations, and for the readers some inside knowledge.

    Dave and the blast process crew, here's wishing you all the best for future ventures

  • Rumoured GAME rescue package outlined

  • Nath_monn 21/03/2012

    Rats, the lot of them, each and every board member and higher management are comparable to a disease ridden rat!

    Horrible tactics are being used here, run a company into the ground, deter any potential buyers, then welcome administration to write off the debts, banks, suppliers, lease holders all jibbed out of large amounts of money, in turn staff made redundant.

    All for the fucking scavenging sewer rats to cherry pick the assets at rock bottom prices on Monday, and restart a business with everyone losing out apart from the rats at top, scum tactics and I for one will NEVER spend a penny with GMG ever again.

    As an ex Gamestation manager it upsets me no end to see what my friends still with Gamestation are going through, and sympathies go out to the ones working in the stores at this difficult time.

    (btw for what it's worth, my Gamestation store was bright, spacious, stocked with plenty of air freshener for the smelliest of customer, played Motown, chill out, Mr Scruff, Prefab Sprout and Frank Sanartra, stocked retro, and had staff that would bend over backwards for anyone who had manners, out performed our local Game week in week out, had the best Black Ops launch in the company, and fought against graingers price point by aggressive price matching! Basically we did our damned hardest to be as different from Game as possible, whilst not being a stereo typical GS store, all for nothing now, will be a shame for it to dissapear over night by niave top decisions.)

  • GAME unsure over future as it reportedly puts itself up for sale

  • Nath_monn 12/03/2012

    @ProtoformX The final straw for me at Gamestation was about this time last year, when we had a jumped up store manager from a Game branch on a larger out of town retail park come to do a compliance audit, who failed our store because two stickers on a game case over lapped, over fucking lapped! I hope he's been enjoying putting the 1.98 stickers on in a conforming fashion, as his company sadly goes down the drain, anal bastard! Reply +8
  • GAME "has two weeks to turn its fortunes around"

  • Nath_monn 10/03/2012

    Just been into my local Gamestation, and as an ex employee I found it to be a rather upsetting experience, the shop was empty, the shelves were bare too, things just looked dismal and lacked any amosphere, not a pleasant experience.

    Both staff present seemed understandably demotivated and down, from my short chat with them it seems that Game not only "don't comment on rumors" but also communicate with staff at shop level, they're completely in the dark. He said the only plus side of it was that "he'll no longer have to book download festival off", really felt for the chap!

    I asked on the mass effect situation and it seems from his POV that they were asking Game to buy it at a stupid price, along with large quantities of Tiger Woods, which wouldn't sell.

    Sad times, and I hope for the staff at store level something positive will come along but it's looking doubtful

    I'm not defending game by any means, but this community seriously has a habit of exaggerating the truth at times.

    I will agree on the price though, I went into GS yesterday for mass effect 2 which for the best part of a year has been 5-9.99, yesterday it was 19.99 p/o, what a bloody joke! No thanks game.

  • What would happen if GAME died?

  • Nath_monn 28/02/2012

    This article makes it sound like the Industry would be crippled over night should Game close it's doors.

    It sounds like its been written by one of the board members, I wouldn't be surprised if they had spoken to someone at Game. The reason I say this is, I used to work for Gamestation, until I couldn't put up with Games shit anymore, there was a divisional manager who's catch phrase was: "keep your windows neat, shop tidy, they haven't come in for a Gregg's pasty" and low n behold there's a reference in here too.

    Also the article doesn't take into account the big nasty supermarkets adapting to change, they'll no longer be the thorn in a specialist side, and there will be a untapped market that they can provide for, what's stopping tesco having specialized games areas, with pods, merch, walk throughs, and heck I'm sure there will be enough staff leaving Game willing to share there knowledge of games with tescos customers??

  • MW2 Stimulus Package costs 1200 MSP

  • Nath_monn 15/03/2010

    Nah of course the maps don't need to be on mw2, their initital charm that made these maps so good, is going to be deminished every single time you get predator missled, or chopper gunned, or sniped with thermal scope.

    I'm so bitter towards mw2 I hoped and longed for it to be something it isnt, saddly all we got was a charmless multiplayer braw, with a lot of the original joys lost somewhere between a care package and a ac130, shame.

  • Nath_monn 15/03/2010

    I think I'd rather just play cod4 to enjoy all the orignal maps, rather than pay 1200msp for the pleasure of two. Besides cod4 had the right balance, and decent flow of gameplay, instead of the noob hole that is mw2.

    Ha 1200 msp, I feel sorry for the poor little bitches suckling on the teets of actihells cash cow. Thank fuck I got a promo copy of mw2, no money has been spent on this shit game and no money will be.

    I bet it's gonna be like waw too, buy the maps or get Kicked every other game!

  • Halo: Reach screenshots leaked?

  • Nath_monn 06/11/2009

    I agree with Chaz only cuz he mentioned bsg, bsg rocks!!

    The point I was tryin to make with cod is I've seen evolution from cod1 up to mw2 (I've played it so can see the noticable differences) however I find with halo, after duel weilding weapon for halo 2 I've seen no real progression.

    I am the same as Chaz tho, I've played all the halo games multiple times, however the thought of playing another just doesn't appeal.

    Such a shame, as i'm a firm believer that without halo2 we wouldn't have the xbox experience we have today, it's done wonders and should retire gracefully imo

  • Nath_monn 06/11/2009

    Your post makes no sense, you say waw looks like cod123 and moh, but plays different. Then you go on to say halo needs a drastic genre shift to make it different from previous games.

    If the cod franchise can keep it's genre of a fps and still uses unique and innotive ways to stand out from previous titles, why can't halo??

    An that's my problem, it's the same old over and over, looks the same and plays the same! I've not seen anything unique or different from halo since duel weilding weapons.

    Because those leaked screenies looks exactly the fudging same as the previous 4 halo games.

    I do sound like a disgruntled hater, but I'm not I loved the first two and bungie do loads for it's community, however what doss beat my balls is peoples denial In the fact that each bloody game ha been the same as the last with nothing innotive and more crapy story.

    I hope reach kills off the remainding fan base, with yet another rehashed halo game, poor graphics/modeling and a cuppa soup like story!!

    Sadly I know it won't, as bungie have got far to many of you blinded by master chefs big stupid head, reatrained and addicted suckling on the tits of the huge cash cow they have created, to even notice the lame lame game play is being churned over again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again...bored yet??

  • Skate 3

  • Nath_monn 06/11/2009

    I think most problems with skate, and I was a culprit of this is that you try and play it like tony hawks, speed everywhere and chain stupid amount of tricks together, and when you don't achieve this (which is more often than not) you get titsed off.

    With skate I don't particulary aim or ride towards anything, I just go with the flow and direction of the previous trick I've just landed, and then trick off the next thing that comes to me. If what I just said doesn't make much sense then you've probably not been in the skate zone, those that have will know what my giberish means ;)

    God your all so cynical, these are the first four shots and real bit of info about the game and your all quick to cast it off as the next Tony hawks, just because they are introducing stepping stones for pig handed people who couldn't learn the controls. Chill out wendy!!

    Personally I think the story and the brand idea sounds great, I cant wait to recruit my friends and do the story co-op, as the online challenges were great fun in skate2.

    Skate2 was the biggest suprise for me this year and woukd say it was definately one of my top 3 releases, considering I hated the first two hours play, I manage to get 1100g and a nice 40 hours of game, roll on skate 3

  • MS warns against second-hand 360s

  • Nath_monn 05/11/2009

    What a load of bullshit, I work for a rather large games company in the uk, who thrive off second hand market.

    I can safely speak on the companies behalf and say should someone buy a second hand console that is banned from live, we'd happily swap the machine over.

    This nonsense really ruffles my feathers, on one hand they want us to be the main outlet and sell their products with huge praise, but at the same time they dong want us making our own profits thru second hand.

    Besides I sware being banned by MS is a myth, I've friends on my gamertag who have a list of games played prior to the release as long as the 0's on MS profit income, have they been banned (yes they have been report plenty of times) nope and no!
