  • GTA IV review on Sunday

  • RichGL 25/04/2008

    Ah sweet, fightman thinks he has the game, that's so cute.

    You've just been staring at the tv for three hours, and it's not even on, is what really has been happening.

    They had good reasons for not putting co-op in the main game though.

    Essential they said you can have a really balanced single player game, or you can have a really balanced co-op game, or you can have a game that is unbalanced in both. We wanted our game to be balanced perfectly. So we opted for single player.

    Read the recent interviews on IGN for the full info.

  • Games a "colossal waste of time"

  • RichGL 02/04/2008

    What are kids supposed to do? Kiss chase is probably seen as rape chase now, so they can't do that. British Bulldog is faaaar too violent for little Harry, can't have him doing that either. Tick is probably viewed as being a bit too like picking on someone.

    There's only drugs, porn and video games left. Hey wait, that's what I was into in 1985, OMFG alert the papers, things haven't really changed at all!

    I'm about to start my own business and it doesn't involve murder, rape, theft or abduction. So he can shove that up his arse if he wants.

    @Cloudane - Why?

    She is the governments choice of child Psychologist when they want some work done. Her work pretty much pushes her to the front of media attention. She made the choice to back out of the TV programs she was involved in when they wanted her to get more alarmist (and hence make less useful programs) and less professional.

    How on earth did you figure out she is seeking attention?

  • X360 vs. PS3 Face-Off: Round 10

  • RichGL 27/03/2008

    I'm confused here maybe you could explain.

    The 360 will never apparently break out of the mould that it is currently in. The popular and successful one of releasing games that the 25+ age group love.

    That is a bad thing?

    Hmmm, you see how your argument is complete shit don't you?

  • World of Warcraft

  • RichGL 19/03/2008

    After a long break playing wow I'm back playing it again and as far as the population in concerned it seems exactly the same as before.

    There always have been kids calling each other names and begging for money. Since day one, as I remember thinking begging was actually part of the game when I first played it (on day one of release, not beta).

    There always have been unhelpful and unfriendly people, as much as there has been helpful, friendly people.

    The levelling speed change does make the game more fun in my opinion, it's certainly refreshing not to have to tackle every quest.

    It's definitely a 10, read the scoring policy if you need explanation as to why. It's pretty clear.

    Lord of the Rings has over 200,000 subscribers. I don't think they see themselves as failing either.

  • RichGL 20/02/2008

    PS3 is a great machine. It's just a shame all the multiplatform games have been proved to be better executed on the 360, and the PS3 only games are uninteresting, and it's overpriced or I'd have one by now. Reply 0

    I'm playing it without rumble as I removed the rumble motors to mod my controler (right trigger on left hand side if you recall).


    You can extend the wires that attach to the motors and shove the motors inside something else to provide the thrill.

    Any ideas?

  • Console Accessories Roundup

  • RichGL 21/12/2007

    Not the stick then?

    BTW - Did you know that the puritans pretty much reduced Christmas to the same importance as any other unimportant event (such as Fathers day). The Victorians then decided to bring the celebration back in the style that we know do it by leaving out certain parts of the pre-puritan style Christmas celebration.

    I heard it on the radio so may not be entirely correct.

    What kind of a film student finds Tarkovsky's Solaris boring? I think you have completely missed the point of the film.

    Those bits where nothing happens for 5 mins are supposed to be making *you* think. All hail the 5 sec attention span generation eh?

    I don't think you need to explain anything. The typical whinger that brings up these score based moans on a regular occasion isn't going to be swayed in the least by rational explanations of how Eurogamer has to operate.

    Who cares about character customisation anyway? In my opinion they should have left it out completely as it's only icing. What is important in Skate is the dynamics of riding a skateboard and they have nailed it 100%.

    I hated the camera originally but now I love it, it adds that element of difficulty due to randomness that the world has.

  • Manic Miner

  • RichGL 26/10/2007

    This should be at least a 9 simply because friendships were made on this game alone. Yes other kids at school had spectrums, quite a lot of them in fact, but what really made you sit up was when you realised that there were other people who could do screens on Manic Miner which you couldn't and vice versa. So you'd all get together and complete the game with a team effort.

    Happy days!

  • RichGL 12/10/2007

    Is the real time match engine realistic? I tried the demo of last years and the very first shot the opposition had was a huge lofted pass from in their own half into the box. This was volleyed into the net by the striker. So the volley would have had to be on the half-turn, from a huge lofted pass, hmmm.

    My team then went 4-0 down within 6 mins of the game. I switched off not long after.

    sharpfish, your a complete fuckwad aren't you? It was YOU who first mentioned other games, it was YOU who first started insulting people because they disagreed with your opinion.

    Plus you didn't even know how to use the TK properly, possibly because of being a complete FUCKWAD.

    This game is very shit.

    I convinced myself last night that maybe it wasn't as bad as I originally thought, and maybe I was being unfair.

    Thanks for giving me a metaphoric slap around the face Eurogamer!

    I'll take this back to Gamestation tomorrow methinks.

    Bethesda were quite open about the fact that they had to scale back the radient AI in Oblivion. It was effectively game breaking because all hell could break loose with NPCs effectively rioting.

    I agree though, it was a 9 in my opinion.

    SS2 was more eerie than scary, apart from the first time I opened a locker and those bee things came out. I nearly crapped myself then ok.

    I cancelled my pre-order a week ago as I have yet to have a game sent to me before it was out in the shops.

    I'll pay 10 quid extra and get it on the morning thanks!

    Besides that will save me from hanging around the door like a chav on giro day.

    From the review..

    "The HD graphics are surprisingly decent for a multi-platform kid's port."

    I think that constitutes a mention.
