    State of decay does something similar if you are interested. Good game actually.

    Yeah but that is the point. They quite clearly didn't generate enough profit to make it worth it so scrapped the sequel.

    Ubi is the king of milking if they thought there was a market they would be on it like a fly to shit. It's not like they haven't publicly said they were unhappy with the wiiU performance. They even scrapped a pretty much finished game as they didn't think they could recoup the costs.

    Do you honestly believe they would dump the wiiU and a planned sequel to zombieU if they turned a profit?

    They are a public company and those don't walk away from any kind of profit

  • Headteachers threaten to report parents who let their children play 18-rated games

    @lockonandfire

    Yeah doing the missions is bit much with a five year old it must be said :)

    Just wondering around exploring GTA is pretty harmless IMO. I have no concern when my daughter plays like that and she is nearly 5.

    @lockonandfire

    Was the guy doing missions with his 5 year old or just mucking about in the city? There is more to gta than shooting stuff and sex references and parts of it really won't turn children into killers. Gta is great for just exploring I don't see anything wrong with controlled access to some elements of the game, as I said below my daughter occasionally has a go with me and it is something we do together. She loves the snow mod at Christmas and going around the snowy city and never does anything violent.

    Come on now cod and gta are not really "extreme" violent and sexual content are they.

    Skipping the part where you know what "most" parents do in raising their children, so because some couldn't care less if their child plays a game with adult content everyone has the state parent for them? Nah not happening.

    To be honest I'm not that bothered about it myself age ratings are a guide (how many times must this be said before it sinks in for some!) So I pay no attention to ratings either. if she sees something she doesn't understand ill explain and our gaming machine is in the living room also so I monitor it. I have to be honest my daughter seeing content above her age is such a meaningless "problem" as far as my worries for her future goes. A lot more to worry about than what video games she plays.

    When you are a teen there is no age rating on hedge or park porn though thank god....although you do wonder who leaves it there in the first place.... :)

    @mushi_mush

    So do we monitor everyone at home to ensure people are fined? Where is the cut off in your fine idea? Should a parent really be fined if their teenager can understand gta or cod in the right context at 15?

    Apart from fines being completely unworkable and beyond silly Government should only step in with genuine neglect and playing a video game is not neglect.

    Age ratings do (usually) stop children buying this media on their own so it does serve an important purpose to be fair.

    Very good idea. As i said earlier in the thread my little one loves playing around in the city but obviously can only do it supervised. A "child option" would be awesome.

    @ObliviousTroll

    Not really sure if you are serious but ill counter. You can't make it illegal as we all mature at different rates. Ratings are not a magical age you understand the themes. It is a loose guide and used to limit unsupervised access. Hard to really make it a law to dictate what your children can and can't do at home


    I do find it strange so many on EG don't seem to grasp what ratings actually are and what there function is.....mind you some headteachers don't grasp it either it seems :)

    What are talking about? As I already pointed out it is law you cannot sell media to underage sure but that is it. Nobody is getting a visit from police or social services just because their child played gta or watched a horror film.

    Again that is the point. Age ratings are a guide and stops children accessing it on their own and nothing more. It is down to the parent to decide if the content is something the child can comprehend.

    That is my point it's not the kids seeing or playing it is the bad parenting that is the issue and no age rating will ever fix bad parenting.

    Under supervision my little one has mucked about driving and walking the streets in gta I even changed the player to a women for her. She doesn't do missions though. It is all about parenting, knowing your child and what their understanding of the world is.

    That is not in relation to consuming media only buying. It is not illegal to consume media above your age just buy it on your own.

    To be honest context and education is more important than restriction. My little one loves amazing spiderman, way to scary for her age with the lizard but I taught about cgi and she has a clear understanding it is not real.

    I also drum into her real life is not the same as tv film and games and she knows real violence is a no. For example she likes injustice but has a firm understanding you don't just hit people in real life.

    The problem isn't kids consuming it (most of us have consumed media above our age) the problem is some parents not researching and using those ratings when buying for kids.

    What exactly do you think a games publisher is searching your pc for? :)

    Beside as I said all drm and machine phone home indeed other Battlefields use that useless punk buster which also reads what's installed don't hear cries of EA stealing info there.

    Hey I get a dislike of the malware that is DRM but let's not get silly about what EA are doing. I'm sure they don't give a toss about your sensitive activities.

    They make you aware they monitor hardware in the t&cs so i highly doubt it is illegal and all devices tell companies about us now for better or worse. Admittedly the steam survey is a better solution as you can opt not to send one but I don't see a problem with simply knowing the hardware you use especially if it can help them make a pc game without nvidia finishing it for them (if you didn't know an ex nvidia man spilled the beans recently o n how much nvidia do on pretty much most triple a these days).

    All these devices do it. Consoles can tell them the make of your TV if through hdmi. Not just machines either drms like unilock that Sega used, that one even reported back how you played a game.

    Lol how long does he need to fund by selling insane priced dlc (it is a single bit of dlc don't kid yourself)? I remember the original pitch was "I can do this cheap"...I guess 200 note dlc to exploit that some defend as something ok in the hope that it will help this thing get made changed his mind.....

    Look I tried to explain and will try again . I don't care if you spend 10 thousand on little make believe ships in one single video game but it is still so amazingly absurd and people will comment on it and how absurd it is. It may be none of my business but I have every right to laugh at the people being conned.....and whether a real game comes out of it not 230 notes for one single bit of dlc is a monumental con even if some refuse to see it.

    I just hope any fools who bite remember their insurance con! Jeez this "game"......

    @The_shlaaaag_returns

    You are comparing the price a powerful piece of technology for use with all games to a single make believe ship in a video game lol.

    Look man spend on what you want, hey i got some magic beans going if you want, but you have to except this is frankly absurd and nothing but exploiting people and people a bit more sensible about the money they spend on a single video game will laugh and point.

    To be honest as I said I am genuinely amazed this thing gets defended. If someone like EA or Ubi tried to charge such exploitive and outright insane money there would be outcry yet Roberts seems to able to exploit away and even have people willingly defend his cons. Truly, truly bizarre.

  • With the announcement of the NX, Nintendo admits defeat with the Wii U

  • bad09 18/03/2015

    I remember the reveal, they all looked like they didn't know what the hell they were revealing and what to say about it. Says it all really on WiiU.

    To be honest if this NX, whatever it is, is just a dedicated gaming machine like they say they may fail there to, a lot of the world has moved on from one device doing one thing, the idea of a machine/mobile device that only plays games is frankly alien to my little one...and to me these days really, the do everything of PC and android have really spoilt me :)

    Still at least they are starting to tackle their biggest threat (mobile devices), I just wonder how effectively they can do it if they will still be trying to sell dedicated gaming consoles.

    Parents really need to understand the gaming of old is gone, it's all about cash grabs now you don't just buy a game and play it. I won't judge though, even people who grew up gaming would be shocked at how scummy industry it is now. Personally I won't need passwords and such as my daughter is simply not allowed to play outright cons like FIFA or any other MT ridden filth. I wouldn't touch games like this myself why would I let my daughter?

    Mind you, if I was in a financial position to not actually notice 4 and a half grand going out I don't think I'd care how much the brat was spending on games made by fleecing con artists to be honest :)

    Normally these freebies with cards come on Steam or Uplay or Orgin. Could be a code for a DRM free installer off gog though guess I'll find out soon enough.

    I hope it's a steam code, CDPR have let you unlock your steams keys on GOG for 1&2 so 3 will be the same I reckon, best of both worlds.
