Mad Max is criminally underrated in my book. Once you build up your car a bit, it's heaps of fun.

I'd love Ubisoft to get the license so we could get For Honor: Star Wars with some added force powers. That game would be money.

I misread that for a moment and thought they were doing a Mass Effect and Dead Space crossover. Didn't really know how I felt about it.

Fight Night Champion demo - 15 mins

Cannibal

7 years ago

Spammed one punch, never blocked, barely weaved, and you still handed Cotto a beating. Looks like the AI of the computer hasn't improved any in this version. I remember some of the old Knockout Kings at least had the fighter adapt to your tactics like a real boxer... Also not happy they kept those same annoying commentators with the exact same sound bytes.

Kinect Hacking: The Story So Far

Cannibal

If Microsoft was really smart, they'd launch their equivalent of the app store for things that aren't neccessarily games but do cool things with the Kinect regardless.

Lost Oddysey was a better Final Fantasy game than every FF since X. Maybe Mistwalker can step into the role of delivering solid, highly anticipated JRPG's that Square have sadly vacated. Used to be that you could just count on a FF being a minimum 9/10, not so much anymore.

Move support spreading "like wildfire"

Cannibal

7 years ago

I don't really count games that have the controls patched in because they were never designed from the ground up with a Move experience in mind. Always sceptical of afterthought patches.

Star Wars: The Old Republic

Cannibal

7 years ago

This might be the first MMO I try. The only reason I'm interested is because I was hooked on the single player games. I'm disappointed they didn't do a direct KOTOR III but at the same time I don't want to miss out.

You'll get Star Wars fans, single player converts and MMO die hards looking to give it a try at first. Should make for decent initial numbers. Up to them to keep it.

Sony unconvinced by Kinect marketing

Cannibal

7 years ago

I'm amazed with Rare being one of the main groups involved with Kinect that we haven't had Viva Pinata Kinect announced. The way the control scheme of that game works would be PERFECT for the Kinect and probably end up being more popular than the controller version.

They only want all the games online so they can hit you with more online registration codes and kill the second hand market while amping up their own profit margin.

Actor blames gamers for rubbish movies

Cannibal

8 years ago

The no consequence action hero was a product of the Arnie generation. Video games were still in their infancy then and pretty basic score board-em-ups. I think it's Hollywood's lack of willingness to pay for originality that's the problem. If it isn't a remake, sequel or adaptation of a famous book/comic/them park ride, then they aren't interested. If you're creative Hollywood doesn't want you. On the flip side there have been some pretty damn creative games over the last few years. They are probably outpacing Hollywood in creating new and fresh IP's

North Korea's entire military strategy is built around the idea that they will be at war with America. They have even built tunnels deep underground so they can still fight on after the US nukes them.

Kinect sells a million in 10 days

I was surprised when I walked into my local Gamestop the day after launch and they still had a few in stock to sell over the counter. I was under the impression they'd be in short supply until the new year.

Fight Night Champion dated

They need to cater to more boxing styles in the game. Everything in the last one was too much focused around counters and haymakers. The jab was a nothing punch.

Assassin's Creed 2011 confirmed

Cannibal

They'll run interest in the franchise to the ground like they did with Prince of Persia. I bout the first two but will be skipping Brotherhood because it doesn't feel like that long ago I played 2. I doubt there are any major changes when they are developing them within a year of each other.

Latest Fight Night Champion footage

Cannibal

8 years ago

I'm hoping the jab is more effective this time. Jab is one of the most important punches in boxing.

Last game relied too much on counters and haymakers rather than trying to replicate all styles of boxing. I'd like to see a bit more variety in the ways you can win a fight and different tactics from different opponents.

No Wii 2 until 45 million US sales

Cannibal

8 years ago

I wonder if they will stick with the motion control for the next console. I think it's kind of played out now that everyone and their dogs have jumped on board. I think it would be smart to change direction again. After seeing their approach with the 3DS I wouldn't put it past them. Will be interesting to watch them pose the question to themselves of "How does one follow up a success like the Wii?"

Football Manager All-Star XI

All this article does is remind me how great the 01/02 game was. It was the perfect blend of fun and realism. After that it came a bit too skewed to realism at the sake of fun sometimes.

First blood for Kinect in sales war?

Cannibal

8 years ago

Will the Kinect get more accurate with patching over time or as developers get more familiar with it? I'm still kind of half interested, but don't want something that's an unfinished product and only works great "75%" of the time.

Football Manager 2011

Cannibal

8 years ago

Review focused too much on minor bells and whistles of the game. I was more interested if the actual gameplay aspect of the season itself progressed more smoothly instead of dramatic morale drops mid season and about half your team wanting to leave all at once despite doing well just because some team says they want them before the window.

Try Football Manager 2011 this week

Cannibal

8 years ago

I'm not really concerned to much with the extra features that are pretty much just window dressing at this stage anyway. I'm more concerned about tweaking the actual flow of the season itself. I think 2010 has been the biggest offender of the mid season crash yet. You can win like 15 in a row and then suddenly you go the rest of the season struggling to get a point on the board even after your best efforts to rotate and keep squad morale up. It's not very realistic in a game that prides itself on it. I've been able to get to grips with every version of FM but 2010 always seems to slump the team harder in mid season. Hopefully 2011 is better.

Capcom shows Dead Rising 2: Case West

Cannibal

8 years ago

I don't think it will sell anywhere close to as many as the first one. The first one had the advantage of being out before the main game and the first Dead Rising experience in years. It also was a new approach and had the novelty of people wanting to see what it was about. The epilogue will just come across as run of the mill DLC by comparison, and if priced well should sell well for DLC but not to the figure of Case Zero.

Championship Manager PC "on hold"

Cannibal

8 years ago

It's a shame really. I like alternatives and FM is becoming less and less casual by the year. My favourite is still CM 01/02 because it had the most fun to realism ratio. Now it's just too focused on the realism and repetitious boring press conferences.

Capcom aims high with Dead Rising 2

Cannibal

8 years ago

Unfortunately to make it a blockbuster with the mainstream they'd have to strip the game of what makes it unique. The save system and deadlines would have to go and it would probably have to be more of a zombie sandbox like a GTA or something. I like it as it is, but I know it won't sell 5 million.

FM Live hasn't been "hugely profitable"

Cannibal

8 years ago

I think the biggest mistake to long term viability was to give everyone the ability to create their own clubs. I think they should have just used real life clubs and had sackings and applications and stuff. It would feel more fun if there were consequences and pressures with your fictional job. It is hard to feel connection to clubs that have no real life history.

Have teams outnumber people in the game world so someone will always take you but make the top jobs fiercly fought for.

The MAG Factor

So what way is the game structured goal wise?

Do each of the squads have a specificed assigned task to achieve kind of like in a real battle like Normandy where one squad would need to take out gunners on the cliffs, and another would be assigned to punching a whole through the middle etc.

Or is it just a kill the enemy thing?

Loads of Germans sign pro-games petition

Cannibal

Politicians only pick on games because gamers are not really considered a voting demographic. They go after games so they can be seen to be taking a passionate stance against something that is unlikely to bite them back in the ass votes wise. Most of them probably haven't played or been in the same room as someone playing one of these games.
