    I'd like to know where they get thier numbers from, sure its easy to find out how many copies you have sold, but how many pirated copes there are? how exactly did they come up with that figure?

    Not wishing to defend anyone here but the quote (as mentioned in the artical) is



    "is a great way to keep my mind feeling young."



    "feeling" and "scientifically proved fact" are two different things.



    Of course everyone knows the whole brain training thing is total mumbo jumbo, but anyone confusing Nicole Kidman and Patrick Stewart with scientists should be taken out and shot.

  • Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan 2

  • RedboX 05/06/2007

    IMHO the track used for the bed wetting story is the best on in the game. And the animated story features Mario and Luigi, so it can be all bad.



    Otherwise I totaly agree with the review its a good game, more of the same, but the music is just not "as good". Shame.

  • Sin Episodes: Emergence

  • RedboX 18/05/2006

    If you get bored and stop paying attention (like I did) you get careless and it can take longer than 4/5 hours.



    If this was a free mod to download, it whould be the best mod ever, if it were about 4 times longer than it is, youd not feel ripped off paying £9.99 for it.



    Its part 2 that is going to be the big question, we've seen the character models, you can be sure that a lot of the textures are going to get reused. Will part2 be as as good "value for money" when your paying the full price for an engine and so many assets that you already payed for.

  • 360 'on track' to meet forecasts

  • RedboX 22/12/2005

    @Fairlane



    They know their production capacity and therefore forecast. = on track



    if we accept that, then clearly they knew there whould be shortages, which also clearly means there are shortages on purpose.

  • RedboX 22/12/2005

    "It's definitely not done on purpose, I can assure you of that.""



    Well of course its on purpose, at some point there will of been a analysis where someone will of said "we will only have x number of machines manufactured in time for this launch date".



    If Microsoft really did not want to have the supply problems they had, they could of held off the launch, or launched in only 1 country.



    They knew there whould be supply problems and either did'nt care, or wanted it so they could do the usual "the most in-demand item this season" sales angle.

    The sad thing is that the sequal had some good level design in it, shame it was ruined by a plot designed to upset people, and a terrible game engine.



    I've never heard the first game described in negative terms, sure it was offensive-for-the-hell of it, but If you overlooked that it was supost to be a half decent game... I thought...

    I think its an excelent game, and I dont care what RTS fans think.



    /me covers ears and sings LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-NOT-LISTENING.





    I do agree with Tyronne tho, its been out for 8 months now, it should be into the £10 price point now, surely..



    Ok I take on board its a small developer and they have to recover the costs, etc.. but theres been 2 copies of the game in my local GAME since release day, and they are priced £40.... Strange they wont shift at that price.

    Darwinia is an excelent game, and nice to see its getting more publicity via Steam..



    I wonder how Steams going to cope with people who actually have a shop-bought copy.

  • Darkwatch

  • RedboX 02/11/2005

    I think 5 is too much,



    Its boring predictable and horribly sterotypical rubbish. You get to fight the same monsters over and over again, at the bidding of a large chested leatherclad cowboy type woman, who urges you to join the darkwatch.



    After serveal levels that introduce all of about 3 different monsters with slight variations (skelingtons, skelingtons with barrels of explosvies, ghostly skelingtons, zombie cowboy, zombie cowboy with sniper rifles, floating woman) you reach the Darkwatch HQ only to be put into a Testing arena, where you have to fight nearly endless waves of the save monsters over and over and over and over.



    If you can stay awake that long you get to fight a big fat guy in a cage, then lots of skelingtons come out, then skeingtons and zombie cowboys, then skelingtons, zombie cowboys and floaty women, and repeat...



    theres very little real content in the game and to padd it out its just repeated over and over and over again.



    I took my copy back the day I bought it.

  • Zelda III rumour put to rest

  • RedboX 31/10/2005

    Its a fake or a con, the guy who started all the hype apparently picked up a beta vesion of Zelda 3 from a flea market for £20..



    You can pick the bones of out this article.



    http://www.ratedo.com/articles/z3proto.html







    The guy who was orginaly selling it on ebay claimed he could'nt test it as he did'nt have a NES, despite the fact his blog linked to a IGN profile that had hundreds of NES games listed. He later posted pictures of the title screen on his (now deleted) blog having "found" a NES to test it on, someone apparently bought it from him and was going to dump the rom and spread it around the internet, but had started selling T-Shirts with a picture of the Cart on..



    It's all a big con thats turned into a Meme that storys like the above only serve to spread.

  • Europe to get Electroplankton

  • RedboX 26/10/2005

    Im going to quote what was said over at 4cb..



    I think its a fairly stong business decision. Electroplankton will certainly appeal to a select group of gamers. While Iím sure some people would pick it up at the store and really enjoy it, many may not realize what they are getting and be upset that it isnít a more traditional gaming experience. Not only does selling it online hit a more focused target of people who definitely want the game, but it probably cuts costs for Nintendo.

  • PSP peripherals perpetuate pointless alliteration

  • RedboX 24/08/2005

    Unfortunalty thats the drawback with "new" consoles, theres not a lot of scope for cheat carts as makers wont want to allow that sort of access to the hardware for fear of helping evil pirates.



    That said, they managed to do it for the Gamecube, and PS2.



    I dont know why they insist on calling things that let you read/write gamesaves Action Replay tho as theres clearly no cheating going on.

  • RedboX 24/08/2005

    Datel once more piss away the Action Replay reputation by making some sort of thing that you can download game saves from the internet with and calling an Action Replay.



    They did the same with the DS, its not big or clever, and involves very little effort on thier part.

  • Conker: Live & Reloaded

  • RedboX 27/07/2005

    only way to dispatch most enemies is the "hit, back-off, hit, back-off" technique.



    Actually if you do a hit-hit, hit they die very quickly, no backing off required, its a pain, but once you get the timing right the enemies are not an issue..



    Tho it is totaly stupid adition to game, they were not in the orignal, and part of me thinks they were just added to up the dificulty level, which has been reduced from the orignal. I found the Xbox version stupidly easy compaired to the orignal.
