    "It's shocking that someone would think it acceptable to recreate the acts of the Taliban," Fox said.

    of course it's fine to replicate the acts of the British Army...
    you never see
    "It's shocking that someone would think it acceptable to recreate the acts of the Roman Empire,"
    "It's shocking that someone would think it acceptable to recreate the acts of the Greek,"
    "It's shocking that someone would think it acceptable to recreate the acts of the American army"

    Amazing how after a couple of years it becomes accpetable
    And there are probably no films or books about the subject and this is a first....
    /just to make it clear i don't have a problem with the British Army doing what is asked of them.

    I'm no scientist but theres seems to be far too many could's and might's for it to be fact. It also doesn't say what negative affect there is on the kids. Even if they have a problem with maintaining attention doesn't make them bad kids, it doesn't say whether it affects IQ. I imagine it just makes them more difficult to teach. Reply +3

    People who don't see anything wrong with this are a bit blind as to what is actually happening.

    If you buy a car from a dealer with some added extras, and then sell it, does the person buying it from you then not get the extra options that you purchased?
    Does the car manufacturer remove that piece of functionality from the car?

    The car manufacturer has been paid for what it produced, why should it then get more money if i decide to sell the car to some one else?

    It may be that you don't agree with the trade in prices, or the preowned price of a game being sold.. that doesn't justify the game publisher asking for money again for a piece of functionality that was originally supplied.

    Maybe some one else knows the answer to this, but do second hand shops have to pay money to the manufacturers of everything they resell? Records, Books, Dvd's, Mobile Phones etc...?

    Sorry, but this is just wrong..

    I know it's software and therefore people try to justify this money grab by the publisher in some way... But if i sell my board game of monopoly, hasbro don't spring up and say that the person i sell it to can't play it.

    I'm lost as to why they feel they can justify this.

    "Everyone I've heard talk about that level say they fired on the crowd and it boggles my mind. Why would you want to do that? Honestly please answer cause I cannot fatham it."

    Because it was mindless violence and fun.. It's something you would never do in real life so it's fun to do in a game.... Just like in GTA carrying out drive by shootings, trying to run people over, stealing a cop car...

  • EA cans 12 games, lays off 1500 staff

  • keyboardmonkey 10/11/2009


    Yes i read that, you also have to remember that EA maybe having a hard time of it at the moment, but in 2008 they were trying to buy Take Two. I understand what you mean about not being able to take continual losses. But it seems like they are rubbing some of their employees faces in it when they also announce that they will be buying another company for 300 million and that companies revenues are 75 million. But that's revenue not profit.

    Like i said it just stinks a little.

  • keyboardmonkey 10/11/2009

    I hate this news. It just shows everything that is wrong with companies that are at the mercy of stock holders.

    Kick out 1500 save $100 million and then go and spend $300 million acquiring another company.

    The new company of course will already have employees that also need to be paid.

    Instead of buying stuff maybe they should have just kept the existing 1500 staff and carried on developing, 300 million would be enough to keep quite a few people employed for a while.

    Good luck to those who have been laid off, shame it's so near to Christmas when people are generally not hiring.

  • Price Pressures

  • keyboardmonkey 19/10/2009

    Game price has become quite an issue for me recently, I moved away from blighty and moved to a country where there is little if any competition between retailers. Games here normal retail at the MRRP so if i want to buy Batman currently the cheapest i can find it is 42 GBP, in the UK it's for sale at 35 GBP... and this is an example where the difference is not too bad. Anyone willing to pay 39 GBP for Halo ODST.

    I buy pretty much all of my games online and have them delivered here. Indie game shops have been complaining about the large retailers for year, now the large games retailers are complaining about the supermarkets. Well you guys are going to have to adapt. You're not going to be able to rip people off on the big releases anymore, and maybe just maybe you will need to have a wide selection of games with staff who are knowledgable about them. Almost like indie record shops ;-)

    It does feel like some parts of the industry believe they should be able to charge whatever they want. Can they not see what has already happened with the music industry? CD's that were priced at Ł15-20. Keep the prices reasonable and people will buy the games, try shafting people and you will sell less games but do a great favour to the second hand market you despise so much.
    As for development getting more and more expensive does that mean some games which are cheaper to make are retailed cheaper? because at the moment given the rrp's of games it would appear they all have the same development costs. It is just greed within the industry, how come it's possible to sell the same game at a greatly reduced price months later in some cases only weeks after its release?

    /Finally Orange box and Burnout Paradise have both been great examples of value for money products.

    Maybe i'm no longer down with the kids etc... but doesn't the track listing seem like it's been put together for people who are from an older generation. I'll be surprised if most kids under 14 know more than 50% of these artists. Still be alright for the old folks like me. Reply +4
  • Modern Warfare 2 DLC in spring

  • keyboardmonkey 01/10/2009

    I like DLC, but it seems to have changed over the last year from being a way to extend an existing game to being away to ship less in the finished product and then fleece fans for even more money.
    I really hate the 'extra map pack' dlc type of stuff i really feels like you are paying a lot for very little. New campaigns, story modes, etc... i don't mind paying for. Maps always feel like i'm being milked for more and more money.

    /Burnout Paradise has really shown how DLC should be done...
    /Is still an idiot who buys the maps pack though , doh!

  • Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2

  • keyboardmonkey 28/09/2009

    I'm a bit dissapointed as the first one, while not being the greatest game ever, was still a nice little button bashing effort and easy enough to pick up and have a good couple of hours gaming out of.

    I'm hoping this hits the bargain bins hard at some point, and i will get a copy then.

    I think Batman needs to be purchased first though.

    I think my money might be better spent getting a Star Wars fix with The force unleashed (especially if this new edition comes out with all the DLC included).
    Having said that after a slight drought during the first half of the year it seems like the 360 is about to have a tsunami of good games so even the purchase of the force unleashed might have to wait until after Xmas.

  • Xbox 360 outsells PS3 by 2 to 1 in US

  • keyboardmonkey 16/01/2009


    Sorry i heard it so many times last year from Sony, i just thought i would keep it going!

    "The PS3 year on year are up slightly" and at this rate will have caught up with the 360 in 2011/2/3/4/5/6?

    Either way doesn't matter. I am happy to see Nintendo rewarded for trying something different and it paying off after they had a rough time under Sega and Sony, and didn't help themselves with products like Virtual Boy, Mario Paint etc...
