Star Ocean: The Last Hope for spring

Fayt

9 years ago

That twist ruined of what I thought, up until that point had been a great storyline. I really hope that the Last Hope doesn't have such stupidity going and spoiling things.

Fallout 3 to be patched on all platforms

Fayt

10 years ago

Other people have had the same issue and as far as I can see my disc looks fine, but thanks for trying to help anyway. It might have something to do with certain 360 consoles compatability with the game, or more likely people haven't done whatever it is that triggers the bugs. Whatever it is, some people have had next to no problems (in which case I'm happy for you, for being able to enjoy a fantastic game without any problems), whilst others like me are left feeling frustrated at some serious bugs (or whatever it is they are) which I sure hope the incoming patch will swat.

It keeps crashing when I visit Rivet city, every single time without fail, meaning some quests are currently inaccessible to me. Minor bugs are acceptable with such an ambitious game, but for things like this to happen it's simply unacceptable, especially when you consider the price of games. It's easily the buggiest and most broken game I've ever had the displeasure of playing, which is a shame as everything is in place for a fantastic experience and indeed it is when everything is working as it should.

BioShock

Fayt

10 years ago

I played the 360 version and whilst it was a very good game, it was far from the near perfection that most reviews seemed to suggest. On occassion I found it to be repetitive, especially some of the latter moments of the game and didn't like the fact that due to the overy generous checkpoint system there was next to no challenge in the game. but the atmosphere and story were both easily the strongest elements and to play, it was solid (though flawed)

Jade Empire added to Xbox Originals

Fayt

10 years ago

Yeah, Jade Empire is brilliant. I prefer its martial arts theme over Mass Effect's science fiction theme (which isn't to say I didn't enjoy it, because I very much did) I preferred the combat to KOTOR and loved the lovely graphical style. I may very well make a return trip to it one of these days, but to play a sequel would be even better, so I sure hope that shows up sometime in the near future.

Rise of the Argonauts

As much as I don't like the mans interpretation of what an RPG should be, I'm still liking the sound of this.

No Ass Creed 2 this year, confirms Ubi

Fayt

10 years ago

It may not have delivered all that it promised, but personally, I found the first game to be hugely entertaining. Because of Altiair's smooth animation, he was an utter joy to take charge of, whilst the world was wonderfully immersive. It was far from perfect, with repetition being its primary issue, but I'd still go as far to say that it was one of my games of 2007.

PSP Roundup

Fayt

10 years ago

Riviera is great, perhaps even one of the PSP's better RPGS. It's sense of humour is utterly charming and the inventiveness of the gameplay facets gives it a lovely refreshing feel. The only real problems I had with it was its dreadfully limited inventory space, of which becomes progressively more difficult to manage as you get further in and of course the trigger point problem that is brought up in the review, is also a bit of an issue. But otherwise I've got a lot of love for the game :)

Final Fantasy XIII on show this summer

Fayt

10 years ago

I really hope this is a return to form after FFXII. I did enjoy it, but compared to all the other games of the series that I've played, it's not brilliant and not even amongst the best RPGS. Very good game, yes, but certainly not in the league of the best FF's.

Star Ocean: The Last Hope

Fayt

10 years ago

Inquisitor, yeah, I completely agree about the character designs. They look uninspired and could have easily been lifted from any number of JRPGS. Though if the game itself is as good as Star Ocean 3, such minor flaws will be overshadowed by what will surely be one of the best RPGS around.

Square Enix reveals 360 release dates

Fayt

10 years ago

After the genre was almost completely unrepresented on the original Xbox, who would have thought the 360 would become the home of Japanese RPGS, certainly not me.

Call of Duty 5 name and details

Fayt

10 years ago

I actually preferred COD3 over the second game. The large scale battles were even more intense and the inclusion of partial destruction in the environments played at least a small part in that. In regards to bugs, I didn't experience a single problem during my time with the game. Personally I find it to be a far better game than its prequel, but not quite as good as the wonderful COD4. So even though it may not be in the hands of Infinty Ward I'm still looking very forward to playing the fifth game.

Secret Apprentice for Soulcalibur IV

Fayt

10 years ago

They're cramming a lot of content into this, so I'm just hoping that they've still concentrated on the one area that really matters (the gameplay you dummies;) If they have, then very good news indeed for having a beautiful, enjoyable and amazingly substantial game.

Ninja Gaiden's Itagaki quits Tecmo

Fayt

10 years ago

His output has been very good, though in my view, he certainly doesn't possess the genius of the likes of Miyamoto and Kojima. I do hope he get himself a job elsewhere in the industry though, as I feel he would be somewhat of a loss, of which I'm sure Team Ninja will be currently feeling at losing their master ninja.

Wii Roundup

Fayt

10 years ago

Really enjoying Tunguska myself, though I have to admit that being largely a console based gamer, I've played few games of its type. Some of the puzzles are a bit obscure and the voice acting ranges from average to awful, but I'm liking it enough to see more of what the genre has to offer.

Atari's Phil Harrison

Fayt

10 years ago

For me, nothing beats a well crafted single player game, which isn't to say that from time to time I don't enjoy the occassional multiplayer skirmish and whatnot. But generally multiplayer focused games and modes lack the immersion and substantial narrative that I seek from my games and just overall don't offer as satisfying as an experience. Despite what Phil Harrison says, happily I don't see single player games dying out any time soon as there's certainly no sign of them drying up.

Saints Row 2 delayed to October

Fayt

10 years ago

I'm glad it's been delayed as I heard it was a bit buggy, so hopefully some of these bugs will be ironed out (probably not all though as sandbox games are with them being ambitious and all, prone to bugs) . I really enjoyed the first game too, though overall it does now feel a bit dated next to GTAIV. It does stil manage to do certain aspects more proficiently than Rockstars game though, such as the GPS system and the side-missions. I'm looking forward to see how this sequel compares to GTAIV and I can't wait to play what I'm sure will be a very good alternative.

Death's daughter to star in Venetica

Fayt

Gnort, you may very well be right, though there's a chance it's an action RPG.

Fayt

It's an RPG so that gets my interest levels peaked immediately, so hope this is another good addition to a genre I enjoy very much. From a visual standpoint, it does look rather average and archaic, though I do hope it fares better in the all important enjoyment department.

Resi 5 to feature online co-op

Fayt

10 years ago

I don't mind the inclusion of this, but I do hope they haven't focussed too much on it in favour of the single player. It would also be nice if they cut out the repetitive sections that the fourth game at times suffered from and of which was one of few real faults, along with the fact that - with few real jumps and no zombies - it just didn't feel like a Resident Evil game.

New Oddworld game on the way

Fayt

I loved the older games, but felt that Stranger was a tad overated, so I hope the new game takes inspiration from those. Either way, I'm looking very much forward to playing it.

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King

Fayt

10 years ago

Chose My Life as a King over Lost Winds and, whilst it has its share of flaws it is indeed a seriously addictive game, so very happy with my purchase. I only hope developers can keep up this level of quality for future Wiiware titles!

We Love Golf!

Fayt

10 years ago

It is hideously ugly, cartoon-y visuals have been executed with far more detail in zillions of other games. But I'm confident that with Camelot's track record (I lost many hours to the original Everybody's golf) We Love Golf will play an immensely enjoyable round of golf and I'm looking very much forward to playing it, even with its hideous warts ;)

PS3: 12 Games of Christmas

Fayt

11 years ago

For those who just own a PS3, it's a more than a solid line up. However if you own a 360 too, it's not quite so good, though there is at least still games like Uncharted to look forward to for the remainder of the year.

Uwe hits out at "Boll bashers"

Fayt

11 years ago

To be fair, Boll does make some good points. For instance I feel that a lot of people who slate his movies, haven't even sat down and watched one and are simply just bashing them because it's currently one of the "cool" things to do. I watched Bloodrayne and whilst it's far from a classic, it is at the very least an average film and enjoyable enough to watch at least once.
