Video: Five Terrible Launch Titles

Ellie

Hi there, just so you know - I put the author as "Eurogamer Staff" because although I wrote and recorded the voiceover, Ian found and edited the footage. And I consulted the team on the games that should go in the list. But yeah, if you want someone to blame, it's me :)

I didn't realise there was so much Kameo love out there! Fair play.

Apologies - yes, the downloadable version is out now. Thanks for spotting the error. The preview has been amended accordingly.

It's the boxed copy which is being released on 15th April, alongside a special edition which comes with a t-shirt, soundtrack CD, deck of cards and poster. Fancy that.

I can only apologise for my incorrect attribution of the song Living in a Box. Of course it was by the band Living in a Box. How could I have been such a fool.

If Richard Darbyshire, Anthony 'Tich' Critchlow and Marcus Charles Vere are reading this - please accept my sincere apologies. All the best with the fire engine DVDs.

Dante's Inferno

Ellie

8 years ago

Yep, I did play it right the way through - I'd prove it by telling you the ending, but I'd only get accused of spoiling things :)

I didn't just dislike the game because of the God of War similarities, or the tits. I found it got repetitive and felt dated, that the cut-scenes were silly and the puzzles were unimaginative, amongst other things mentioned in the review... Sorry if this wasn't clear enough.

I did like some things about Dante's Inferno, and I as I said I do think diehard fans of the genre will find stuff to enjoy here - which is why it got 6 and not, say, 3 or 4.

New games based on BBC shows coming

Ellie

Sorry, yes, it's Top Gear, not Top Garden. I think I was imagining some sort of weird Top Gear-In the Night Garden hybrid, where Jeremy Clarkson tries to prove the Ninky Nonk is faster than the Pinky Ponk by racing Richard Hammond to the Tombliboo bush.

Apologies - there was indeed some confusion with the press release formatting. There is no PlayStation Eye 2, it's just the PlayStation Eye. Sorry for the error.

Just Dance

Ellie

8 years ago

We would have reviewed the game sooner but we had trouble getting hold of a copy. Sorry for the delay.

I was actually writing the penultimate paragraph of the review when the news Just Dance was at No. 1 came through, so I wasn't influenced by that. I did know it was doing pretty well in the charts, but to be honest so do a lot of games I don't like, so I didn't infer anything from that...

I really did just enjoy it :)

Sony clarifies video downloading issue

Ellie

9 years ago

TonyHarrison - I did ask them if there were any plans for a deal like the Netflix one Xbox 360 users have in the US. The answer was a pretty stock "It's something we might consider but right now we're focused on this download service." Sorry I didn't include this in the story, but I was trying to focus on the really important issues as I'm sure you can see.

Just for the record... I didn't start writing the review with a finalised score in mind. In fact I was pretty torn between 7 and 8. As it turned out, I felt 7 was the right score. Seems like many of you think I was wrong... Fair enough :)

Please note: I did not accuse CS Lewis of being a woman hater... I said he "has been accused" of being a misogynist. As in he has been accused of that by other people, not by me... I'm sure he was a very nice man. Probably.
