EGTV unboxes the super-expensive Star Wars Kinect Xbox 360

Artemis_Matsas

6 years ago

The console looks cools and the sound effects are nice. Not sure about the controler, i would probably buy and use another remote out of fear of scratching - damaging it.
About the Star Wars game... unfortunately me and my son got to play it at our local mall. Although the graphics are good, the gameplay is on rails and really bad. The handling is unresponsive and the player ends up just waving like a madman until the end of the demo.

Sometimes when you try to implement a fix, you might end up causing more problems than you had in the first place. Moriya San has a valid point there.

Nintendo shares fall after Wii U reveal

Artemis_Matsas

7 years ago

The showing was interesting for everyone that's into gaming (like most of the people posting in these forums). The people that stand on the sidelines selling and buying stocks were probably expecting a spectacular extravaganza featuring dancing elephants and talking dogs.
In any case, Nintendo should have done a little better presentation.

Nintendo Wii U specs emerge

7 years ago

The first showing of the Wii U got my attention for sure. Let's hope that it gets some proper 3rd party support this time. The only thing i'm worried about is the battery life of the remote. Is the battery imbedded or just simple AA batteries like in the Wiimote?

Assassin's Creed: Revelations announced

@ianegg

Of course i played and enjoyed them.
But talking about an army of Templars at that particular point of history seems weird. They were always around after they were disbanded but always kept a low profile.
The Templars continue to exist nowadays (Masons), no doubt of that.

Templars in Constantinople?
The Templar order was disbanded in 1312 vanishing from history. In the picture i can see Aya Sofia with the mosques on the sides. That means that the city is under Ottoman rule, so the timeline must be after 1453 (Fall of Constantinople).
Some interesting anachronisms here, or plain ignorance.

I do not recognize any Greek text in this video (I'm Greek, i know :)). The only clue i recognized apart from Aya Sofia, is the disc of Phaistos that appears on 00:05.The disc of Phaistos haven't been deciphered yet. It was found in the Minoan palace in the city of Phaistos on the island of Crete.

EA pulls PlayStation 3 Crysis 2 demo

Artemis_Matsas

8 years ago

Managed to play a couple of online matches before it got pulled. The biggest problem for me are the floaty controls - nowhere near as precise as Battlefield BC2.
Also, i have to admit that the graphics were a mixed bag (low resolution and tearing are quite evident).

Safe Bets

I agree with all the previous comments, although one fact goes unmentioned: The huge Piracy problem that the Wii is facing as a platform.
Most of my friends have an HD console along with a hacked to death Wii. I have been offered again and again to have my Wii hacked by a simple SD card hack, but i refuse because i'm partly an idiot and partly because i despise piracy.
What i want to say here is that most "core" gamers that happen to also have a Wii, will have probably played a hacked version of Mad World or No More Heroes.

@Paulie_P

Careful, minor spoilers ahead

In the train section, just after Drake regains his senses from the explosion in the wagon. Drake has to jump to the opposite wagon. I died there about 10 times trying to make the jump. Actually i talked with my brother earlier and he told me that he didn't had any problems there... maybe it's just me (cut an old man some slack :P)

The game is brilliant. got it yesterday (American import).

My only gripe is that the platforming still can be a pain in the ass at some points. When you get to a certain jump in the first train sequence, you'll remember my words!

Good Antipiracy plan:
Fewer bugs - better games and better packaging/presentation of the end product. Nowadays, i spend 50-60 Euro for a blockbuster game, and all i get is a DVD case + game with a manual that is 5-6 pages long!!!
Give something more to the customer, in order to make your product desirable.

@Ryuken
It's very cheap to buy over the internet (aprox. 12 Euro) for the PS3 and Xbox 360. That might explain why they are not making big money out of it.

I'm thinking about buying it, although i'm not a huge fan of this voice recognition control.
