Unlike ex-Man U fans, we can forgive ex-Microsoft fanboys from switching sides. It's ok.

Ever since they changed it all over to Battle.net I've had problems with hacking. Though it may just be coincidence.

Love this article! Hale was great as Naomi in MGS but brilliant as the halfling lass Mazzy Fentan in Baldur's Gate II.

@Sapporodan haha, I never knew that was added as part of an update. I was actually questioning my sanity as to how it got there.

Review:
Game is a good action romp, worth playing, good story behind it. Performance gets a bit dodgy in places.

Comments:
8/10 is a poor game score. Kristan, your opinions are inferior to mine. I hold a monopoly on opinions and what everyone thinks should constitute a good game.

Me:
Good on Eurogamer for not bowing down to the hype machine.

edit: just re-read your post ^^ one word = playable

I'll get it only if they have the whole of 2112 on it. Otherwise it's GHIII for me ^^

Just checked out some new developer vids on Gametrailers. Looking forward to this game and quite impressive amount of work done in 4 months, unless any of you guys are in the business and can tell me otherwise :)

Customisable gun looks well sweet.

@LOLLERS
I think what some people are trying to say is the fact that guns are easily accessible in the US compared to the UK i.e. Law abiding people can't buy firearms nonchalantly in the UK.
Fair enough he was a crackpot and would have killed regardless, but do you think he would have killed 30 people or so easily using knives? I'm sure they would be people prepared to put up a fight vs a knife than a gun.

Yes! Back to cool "What's New" articles!

Had my Core 360 since around launch time and it hasn't failed me permanently.

It has had the ring of death and one red segment error but both times I just switched on and off and it has been working fine ever since fingers crossed!

Demo runs perfectly fine on my CoreDuo 6600 & 8800 GTS maxed out settings at 1280x1024.

@ Demophon - Not only faced with the logical step of injecting random syringes into your wrist, you come to the inevitable conclusion that you must jump off a balcony too.

Iranian students' anti-US game

"Huh Iran is all over man. It's all about the pesky Russians up to their old tricks again.

Raid Over mOscOw II FTW \o/"

Yeah, the Ruskies are the bad guys now.
Instead of rescuing nuclear scientists, there should be a game about deporting russian diplomats. First country to deport all opposing diplomats win!

"Also a game that promotes "the idea of defence, sacrifice and martyrdom" does sound extreme but consider the western version of the same virtues. Defending democracy, sacrificing yourself for comerades, getting the job done at any costs"

"Thats actually a really good point when presented in those terms."

Yes, a very good point but there is a slight difference between martyrdom and sacrificing yourself for your comrades: paradise with virgins and philanthropy.

I don't know about that Whymeeeeeee.

I mean I loved the Total Carnage sub-game in Burnout. Only instead of racking up cash, you'd be racking up virgins in the afterlife (good-looking ones mind, otherwise it'd be a cop out).

Your argument is a bit skewed GregorV:

"We tried to promote the idea of defence, sacrifice and martyrdom in this game," as said by publisher/developer/don't care.

Name a shoot 'em up you know which PROMOTES killing muslims/middle easterners, and I'm not talking about subliminal tosh, I'm talking about where a developer says it straight.

Um, don't know if it's just me or the ambiguity of the article but when it said "big surprise addition here that Takeuchi believes is an obvious step in the series' evolution. You'll kick yourselves."
I thought it was answered in the following paragraph about light affecting vision.

Please tell me if I read it wrong, or is there another surprise?

BioWare talks Sonic RPG

Edwannawonga

11 years ago

It'd be cool if it was like Baldurs Gate II with Sonic;

Sonic is actually a child of Bhaal and he has to shape his destiny, choose to either play it good or evil. He can also shapeshift into an avatar of Bhaal - a blood-thirsty beast with seemingly-unstoppable brute force.

Along the way you party up with Tails, Knuckles, and random hedgehogs. A little love triangle will form along the way (not mentioning any details) depending on your choice of dialogue.

As for plot, Sonic was raised by an old man who gets killed by Robotnik, he vows revenge and gets it. The end.

Oh yes, he also becomes a God.

"Also, a machine that already suffers from overheating, and they make it BLACK? Good thinking."

Sorry Hughes, don't mean to be a snobby know-it-all but black actually radiates heat a lot more efficiently.

Back to topic; not enough changes to hardware to warrant a purchase I'm afraid. Like what Lambtron was saying about in-built Wifi and increased reliability, it'd be worth it only it's just a pipe dream.

Looks like a brilliant game imo. Who really REALLY cares that much about the story line?

*penny drops*

Ahh! So that's why Lost Planet didn't get glowing reviews. I always thought it was because it's a shallow albeit fun shooter.
