  • Major UK retailers refuse Bully

    More exposure for the game though.



    Who the hell are DSG anyway?



    By the way, for those that haven't seen the excellent article on so-called "violent games" hysteria over at gamesindustry.biz: linky linky.

  • Exclusive GTA IV content for PS3, too - source

  • Xephon70 17/10/2006

    Exclusive, not exclusive, exclusive to each console...good grief. It's all go these days, it's hard to keep up with all of this. Best getting each console then.



    Who's for betting Dead Rising and Lost Planet will come to PS3? With "exclusive" content? (IE, it'll come out on XBLM).

  • Capcom to close Clover Studio

  • Xephon70 12/10/2006

    That is terribly sad news. Hopefully the guys at Clover will be absorbed into Capcom as a whole and be allowed to continue developing...



    Or maybe not. One of Capcom's most successful games recently was Dead Rising and the demo for Lost Planet was dl'd a hell of a lot. Is this the beginning of the end for imaginative, innovative and original games from Japan? Will they all now make more Western orientated games, targeted at the 360? I really hope not, but it's possible.

  • EA acquisition would 'kill creativity', says Ubi boss

  • Xephon70 11/10/2006

    Got to back Ubi all the way on this one. If they can be the size they are and still bring major creativity to games, it'll be a challenge to the other big players.



    Mind you, at least EA are giving Spore a home.

  • Kingdom Hearts II

  • Xephon70 10/10/2006

    For those that can import...



    There's going to be a Final Mix version of the game, much like there was of the first game. However, this will include a 3-D version of the GBA game, Chain of Memories.



    Details here .

  • European gamers 'don't mind' launch delays - Sony VP

  • Xephon70 10/10/2006

    "well that will warm the cockles of sony execs and gives them excuses to launch products later but fair enough im just not prepared to wait so its a wii for me this christmas"



    I've never seen any good reason to be an early adopter. Quite frankly, whether it's Microsoft, Sony or Nintendo, I really couldn't care when they launch. I'll get one someday, when I'm good and ready. I've plenty of unfinished buisness on the PS2/Cube/Xbox/DC anyway.



    This "slap in the face" buisiness or "gotta have a console this Xmas no matter what", well, whatever makes you happy.

    "and responding to Xephon70 dont you feel like sony treat you as a second class consumer recieving products months later than most other regions.



    Im a 360 owner and happy with the way ms are treating us can you say the same about sony ?"



    Um, no. I'm not that bothered about having to wait. This "second class" nonsense is bullshit anyway. It's petty mindedness. Get over it.



    As I've already said, you'll all be crying abut some other nonsense next year. I'm old enough to have this type of sillyness before. I'm still surprised it still surprises me.

They don't shit their pants and cry when something they were looking forward to buying is delayed, they don't take every statement out of context because they are so full of grief, they just change the channel, watch something else for the time being and get on with their lives without throwing their dummies out of the pram."



    Finally, a voice of reason. Pretty much what I've been feeling to be honest, like March 07 is aeons away, it'll be here soon enough. I said on the very first page they'd be complaining about something else this time next year, microtransactions or some other nonsense.



    All the histrionics (look it up) make me ashamed to be a gamer. They want to be taken seriously, but reactions like this don't help anyone.

    Good grief, let it go guys. Let's see where we are in 12 months...no doubt you'll still be moaning about some other thing that some huge impersonal corporation has "done to you". "Sony hates us"...there, there, sure they do...now go and dry your eyes.



    To be honest, I've become disillusioned with games and gaming recently, not because of any industry people or companies, but because of the people that play the games, along with the internet and it's inhabitants. Gamers have become an embarrassment to each other.



    It's no wonder we have the rep we have. The same thing happens every time...it's getting tired.

  • Halo Wars and exclusive deals blitz X06

  • Xephon70 27/09/2006

    Sorry if this comes across as cynical...but just like Chelsea, MS prove that if you can throw enough money at anything, it'll succeed in the end. I'd be careful with that word "exclusive" too, we all know how it's definition isn't what it used to be.



    I've been paying less and less attention to all of this hoopla, it's getting tiresome...I wish I could go into hibernation until a year from now. Or maybe I should just unplug the internet...:)

  • No denial from Xbox Japan boss stokes Resi 5 exclusivity chatter

  • Xephon70 26/09/2006

    Capcom now have their eye firmly on the western markets, so it would make sense to have Resi5 exclusively on the 360, initially anyway...sales of games have slowed in Japan and as mentioned in the article, they already have two very western-orientated games on the 360. Reply 0

    Another one my arse. The last time I was a fanboy, SEGA broke my heart. So I've all the consoles, it makes life a little less fanboyish, so don't be jumping to conclusions. Reply 0
  • Xephon70 23/08/2006

    Hmmm. If Sony were offering all of those add-ons wouldn't the very same people crying "fanboy" be calling them rip off merchants, for charging for extras? But it's ok, big ole cuddly Microsoft are doing it, so that's alright then.



    They're as bad as each other, they all want the money from your pocket. Sony did it with the PlayStation 2 (memory cards, multitaps, etc), and MS have learnt the lesson...build nothing in when you can charge extra for it!

  • Shinobido: Way of the Ninja

  • Xephon70 03/08/2006

    I've played this on import and it didn't look like 1998 graphics to me...but anyway...



    It's an awesome game, far better than Tenchu managed on it's PS2 outing, Wrath of Heaven (much as I enjoyed it at the time). Shinobido is worth a punt and an 8, though it depends how cool you think Ninjas are. Plus there's a PSP title in the series coming too. I know you'll all be excited by that...

  • SNK cold on PS3 development

  • Xephon70 02/08/2006

    Ha. Big deal. They sell F.A. anyway. I don't think Sony'll be sweating over this. They'll still be releasing games on the PS2 though.



    "Ha, It's not even out yet, and already developers are abandoning (a sinking) ship. Sony is f***ed."



    Get a grip. SNK aren't exactly Squenix or Konami, are they?



    Is it trolling season again?

    Right, so instead of a weeks worth of shameless plugging by console manufacturers, developers and publishers, we'll have a smaller event (to do "the business") AND individual events from each and every console manufacturer, developer and publisher. Awesome.

    Well, as I already have DDS 2, I meant P3 as an import :) . We're not getting the DS PSP game though, the updated Saturn game, bit annoying.



    Can't get enough of that MegaTen goodness...with the PSone games now about to be emulated, maybe everyone will have a chance to play the older MegaTen and Persona games...

    Awesome, another great review for this game. Much like a few others, I had this and part 2 on import last year. Typical of gamesTM to get it wrong - some ejit gave it a 5. :P Silly billies.

  • New Capcom games at E3

  • Xephon70 21/04/2006

    It'll be Lost Planet and Dead Rising for PS3-neither of these were slated for release until next year and there's no way Capcom would leave them as exclusives on a console that's not selling very well in it's own country. At the minute anyway.



    There may be a few more new titles to be announced.
