Editor's blog: How the Top 50 works

Have any of you been caught picking your nose while composing a review?

Do any of you hate beta keys giveaways, but daren't say anything in case Rupert puts pins on your chairs?

Do any of you have secret sock accounts with which to post rude comments about other reviewers?

How much dust is on your Wiis?

Oh! How about FORCING your peeps to write a bog reviewing their year - however brief? That way, we'll get to know more about them, and hopefully condemn them (and this site) forever for either owning XBOXEN or PLAYESTATIEN.

Top ten tips for top tens:

1. As any fule kno
2. XBOXES and PLAEYSTATIONS :oD
3. It's completely wrong and stupid every time you do it.
4. Publish your secret formula, so we can say it's completely wrong and stupid.
5. You're evil and wrong. At the same time. In the same sentence.
6. Actually, I have nothing constructive to write.
7. Errr.
8. And
9. that's
10. it.

@spadge (and moggsy): My argument is that it's a portable game console! I can't imagine anyone expecting to make serious use of the camera, therefore .3MP seems adequate and keeps cost down. Anyone for whom pictures are important would surely want something more suitable, like a decent phone camera or a real camera. I bet that 98% of all pictures taken on a DSi simply get overwritten or forgotten about. Actually, reading it again, I quite simply agree with what you wrote just prior to that reply.

Anyway. Alien Breed on DSi then! Woooooo!

I'm a bit worried about what you said about piracy on the DS. It indicates (to me) that the DS is not the preferred platform for the new Alien Breed. DS Ware maybe?

I don't see the point in anything more than .3MP (a common spec), because the DS screens can't display anything near that anyway. Who'd seriously want to use a DS for taking pictures anyway? David Bailey?

Maddie is a character in Halo 3 game

Carrybagma

10 years ago

"All the characters in our game, which takes place 500 years in the future, are completely fictional. In this case, real-world events that occurred during game development have led to an unintended public context for this character," he added.

Is he trying to claim that the MC is fictional? That is an outrageous slur. He should retract that comment and apologise to the legions of Halo fanboys for whom MC is as real as fresh air. How dare he? Why, I have named my newborn daughter 'Master Chief' and made her a polymolydodadedem cot. Out of plywood.

Never played Darwinia. PC was too crap even for that, so an XBLA outing is great.

Chaos was an influence on it? I'm amazed!

Is there anything remotely like Chaos out there as freeware/online game? Laser Squad Nemesis was good, but I'd prefer the simplicity of Laser Squad (and the lack of subsciption..)

Europe gets Xbox 360 price cut

Carrybagma

SO. ANYWAY.

Mentioned this elsewhere to someone who's looking to buy a 360 soon, so I might as well stick it here:

These price cuts are almost certainly preceeding the release of the next revision - Jasper. Give it until October before news gets out, I reckon.

'Google to buy Valve' report "speculation"

Carrybagma

10 years ago

@lefizz: I agree. It may publish bollocks now and then (solar panelzzz), but it's as entertaining as IT news gets. I do like reading CharlieD's stuff - he can go off on a pointless rant sometimes, but other times he's just plain well-informed. This business with the Nvidia duff chips for example - he saw smoke and called them out on it, defying the green fanbois and treading where most IT journalism fears to tread (lawsuit territory). At the same time, we've learned a lot more about how the process of making works; so even he was wrong, he's been informative.

I suspect there's more to this Valve story. After all, since when did large companies confirm leaks ahead of important announcements? How many times have Microsoft denied price custs on 360s in the different regions this year? It may be some weeks or months before something actually happens though.

Team 17 making more Alien Breed

Hey Rob - if want to get the news while it's *H*O*T* then you should start reading the forum:

http://www.eurogamer.net/article.php?art...
Martyn Brown said "It's not a port/upgrade. A whole new deal, with the flavour and vibe of the original, 17years on :-)) Not a FPS either."

A top-down affair on the DS with pen and D-pad would rock my boat.

Konami's Hideo Kojima

Carrybagma

10 years ago

@SteveHiggins: Hey, man, you don't talk to Kojima-san. You listen to him. The man's enlarged my mind. He's a poet-warrior in the classic sense. I mean sometimes he'll, uh, well, you'll say hello to him, right? And he'll just walk right by you, and he won't even notice you. And suddenly he'll grab you, and he'll throw you in a corner, and he'll say do you know that if is the middle word in life? If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you, if you can trust yourself when all men doubt you -- I mean I'm no, I can't -- I'm a little man, I'm a little man, he's, he's a great man.

Wii an "expensive niche" says Sony boss

Carrybagma

10 years ago

What the fuck? The PS3 has less users and is more expensive. How the fuck can he say that? It doesn't make sense to say that when you're the guy selling the least consoles at the highest price.

It's KenK's birthday today, and all Sony execs are required to celebrate by making things up. You'll hear how the Wii has failed to sell later, and that the 360 has no popular games, and that all PS3 games are 1080p etc etc. Zzz.

Best retail gaming package of all time? What astonishing value.

I'm gob-smacked by it apparently being in 1080p too. Can someone confirm this?

I've got the 1080p and the surround - I just need a copy of this an a 360 to be deliriously happy. I've put off playing HL2 for years, waiting until I got a decent PC sorted out in order to enjoy it at it's best - this package makes it worth the wait. My crap PC lives to cough another day.
