    Well despite some of the issues that are being reported (pit stop bug, AI issues, wet race replays, multiple punctures) I'm still getting it. Just seen on the forums that they are looking at the pit stop bug so hopefully they might patch some of the above. Regardless, it's worth a punt as it is. Reply +1

  • ruckus 10/05/2010

    Man I thought this game came out well before 2001 but it appears it was announced in 1998 for a pc release in spring 1999 (via game pr). Seems strange I was playing this in 2001, and not late 90's. Reply 0

  • BioShock 2's DLC on disc already?

  • ruckus 12/03/2010

    @28 It's a shit practice and obvious to all but who gain from it. I assumed I paid for the content on disk - not to find out later I didn't (unless I was aware via a contract before hand). Anyways - we're talking games for fecks sake. Not multi-tiered professional software (where the practice is shit anyway). Reply +6

  • PSP piracy levels are "sickening" - Sony

  • ruckus 22/04/2009

    I used to be a fisherman with a poor family that depended only on fishing.

    The first day joining the pirates came into my mind was in 2006.

    A group of our villagers, mainly fishermen I knew, were arming themselves.

    One of them told me that they wanted to hijack ships, which he said were looting our sea resources.

    He told me it was a national service with a lot of money in the end. Then I took my gun and joined them.

    Years ago we used to fish a lot, enough for us to eat and sell in the markets.
    Then illegal fishing and dumping of toxic wastes by foreign fishing vessels affected our livelihood, depleting the fish stocks.

    I had no other choice but to join my colleagues.

    The first hijack I attended was in February 2007 when we seized a World Food Programme-chartered ship with 12 crew.

    I think it had the name of MV Rozen and we released it after two months, with a ransom.

    I am not going to tell you how much it was, or three other hijackings I have been involved in since.

    My ambition is to get a lot of money so that I can lead a better life.

    Now I have two lorries, a luxury car and have started my own business in my town.

    I only want one more chance in piracy to increase my cash assets, then I will get married and give up.

    Piracy is not just easy money - it has many risks and difficulties.

    Sometimes you spend months in the sea to hunt a ship and miss.

    Sometimes when we are going to hijack a ship we face rough winds, and some of us get sick and some die.

    Sometimes you fail in capturing and sometimes you come under threat by foreign navies, but all we do is venture.

    Let me give you a good example.

    Thousands of young desperate Somali [migrants] continue to risk their lives in the sea in search of a better life abroad.

    So it is no surprise to see us in the same water, pirating in search of money - there is no difference.

    We have local support; most of the people here depend on pirates directly or indirectly.

    Because if there is a lot of money in the town they can get some through friendship, relatives or business.

    Also our work is seen by many in the coastal villages as legal and we are viewed as heroes.

    The only way the piracy can stop is if [Somalia] gets an effective government that can defend our fish.

    And then we will disarm, give our boats to that government and will be ready to work.

    Foreign navies can do nothing to stop piracy.

  • Greenpeace has a pop at Nintendo

  • ruckus 28/11/2008

    If it's a case of Greenpeace wanting data and the company not providing it = said company comes bottom then it is stupid. All they should have done was provide company name* = * Did not complete survey. But they didn't and thus it's obvious this is nothing more than press release sensationalist bollox not worthy of the bandwidth and paper resource that it's going to waste. Like this comment...

    Clockworkzombie: As regards to downloadable content developers can make money selling this content to EACH user that purchases a second hand game as DLC does not leave the system it was purchased on.

    Exactly... yet some people suggest the solution is to make this impossible! Way to cut off your nose to spite your face...

  • Red Alert 3 to use "more lenient" DRM

  • ruckus 10/09/2008

    It's bollox - fine if it's just one title but once you've got quite a few games, applications that you want after each hardware/os update it'll soon get out of hand. Thus if there is no crack or policy of removing the digital restrictions management then I'll vote with my wallet. Reply 0

  • ruckus 21/08/2008

    "The main issue I have with this is that when I press a button in a game, I want to have at least SOME idea of what that button press is going to do.

    If someone tells me I can steer a story or course of events with my decisions, then surely actually MAKING decisions is an important part of that.

    From what I saw in the movie, there was plenty of button pressing going on, but no clue as to what each button press was going to result in. "

    QFT - So true and should be part of some 'Game Design Bible' or something. I hate QTE's so much now that I avoid anything I know has 'em. Soggy corn flakes etc. to whoever invented them.

    Well I agree with the comments that slate the way QTE's were implemented in the game - if you like 'em fair enough but the minute I failed one - redid it and it was a different button each time... my interest was gone which has to be a pretty stupid game design decision on the part of whoever implemented it.

    It would be cool if you could sit down around the camp fires... maybe play the guitar, harmonica etc.
    Get your sleeping bag out and go for a sleep. Basically hang around some of the camps and wild areas with NPC's coming and going.
    Regardless - I'll buy it anyway but when I played the original I was disappointed I couldn't do the above.

    "hardcore gamers" as a term doesn't work unless you state in which way it is being used.
    stubbornly resistant to change or improvement
    intensely loyal
    extremely explicit

    So if you spend lots of time dedicated to gaming and enjoy all it has to offer your not hardcore though you might also enjoy hardcore games.
    So to take it to extremes, who the feck cares for Über hardcore gamers: they despise originality, are the worst fanboys and only enjoy one genre of games. I'd rather be a regular gamer myself :)

    "Furthermore, the action is illegal. What you call it makes no actual practical difference."

    I think it changes the offence from being civil to criminal and thus the amount of damages due if found guilty.
    It's also why RIAA and their like lobby for the change since it would mean the state would prosecute instead of the matter being handled in civil court.

    keyword: I think ;)

  • Rockstar gives GTA PS3 advice

  • ruckus 29/04/2008

    For me the PS3 version sounds best for me but since I don't own one I'll make do with my 360 version.
    That's just based on the PS3 version supposedly having less pop-up and I've yet to play it anyways so don't know how bad the issue is. It's disappointing that it exists at all though.

    Video Gaming isn't always about competition, if that's all it offered I would have given up on it a long time ago.

    Man this pissed me off - no more saving replays to my hd, upload them to EA's shit server... yeah, like I want it there. >_<
    Half assed game as usual - no weather, shit ai refusing to pass the fucking ball around sometimes - so it can turn into a benny hill farce. Stupid ai still running the ball straight out of play (though not as much as 06). Oh - but I can play co-op in management mode, thanking you kindly master sir - the one thing that's improved for me over 06.

    Saw this as well on Gamer TV where it killed my enthusiasm for it. Looks like it was designed to look cool in screenshots - crap in motion and QTE press this button NOW crap. Of course I could be wrong and await the eventual reviews (hopefully demo) but I'm not as interested as I was before. Reply 0
