@Eraysor

Yes, console owners WILL buy it again. This is exactly the reason they bring out the PC version months afterwards.. they get people buying both.

If they had bought out the PC version at the same time as the console version then they wouldn't sell any console versions as the PC version will ALWAYS be better.

WOW: Lich King sells 2.8m in 24 hours

@iokthemonkey

So you telling me you think 2.8m copies in 24 hours isn't impressive?

I hate to break it to you but not everyone will buy it on the first day.. shockingly enough I would imagine that the MAJORITY will wait until the 2nd or even the 3rd day to buy it!. Some people might even wait a whole week!

Hard to believe I know but its true...

Bleszinski rules out Gears 2 for PC

GoW1 was shit. It doesnt even come close to most PC shooters.

It may have "advanced gameplay" for a console but PC gamers have been playing far more enjoyable FPS games for years.

I played GoW PC for about 2 hours and got so bored I uninstalled it.

Pirate Station

I would guess that at least 50% of piracy downloads are by kids and other people who cant afford to buy the game in the first place and would not result in a sale if the piracy option was removed.

Game quality has "skyrocketed" - Braben

Fusey

10 years ago

Games in the 80s/90s are remembered as being more fun because they were the first time we had seen games like that.

Today's games are rehashes of those old classics and because they are just the same games with dx9/10 shiny bits on them they will never have the same lasting impact.

It was the golden age of gaming because it was the start of where we are today.

Guild Wars

Fusey

I tired on 3 separate occasions to get into Guild Wars but I always found it extremely boring after an hour or so.

I'm a long time MMO player so maybe I was too spoilt by the features in subscription MMOs to enjoy it.

Each to their own I guess.

Very few people actually go back to an MMO after they have quit so soon after release.

Flagship Studios closes doors

Fusey

10 years ago

No mention of Flagship fooling everyone into thinking this was a full blown MMO and getting people to pay a subscription fee when in actual fact it was a decent single player game with optional multiplayer components.

The company would still be alive if they had marketed it as such and made the additional material available as DLC.

I feel sorry for the FS devs for having bosses who were talking out of their arse holes.

Diablo III

Fusey

10 years ago

@UncleLou

Correct, in Titan Quest you quickly learn that all "grey" rated items are only worth 1 gold whereas the "white" items are worth around 30+. Hence you quickly ignore all the grey items from that point on.

Why they bother putting in the grey items I do not know. :D

Although I played and finished the original TQ, I have yet to play the expansion. So I'm looking forward to that :)

Titan Quest was the last Diablo clone I can remember that was any good. I started replaying it when I heard about Diablo 3.

I hope they come up with something interesting for the inventory.

I really get annoyed playing RPGs when I have to stop and sell after killing 5 mobs because my inv is full.

Age of Conan nets 700,000 subscribers

Fusey

10 years ago

@UncleLou

I feel some responsibility to other users to warn them of how crap AoC is and not to fall for Funcom's cleverly worded press release.

What Funcom are trying to make you think is that they have 700,000 active subscribers, but in actual fact they have 700,000 accounts which may be active or not.

It would be wrong of me not to point this out so unsuspecting punters don't waste their money thinking AoC has a rapidly growing user base when in fact I can see that by this time next week, due to trials ending, that the active subscribers will be dropping like flies.

I await the announcement of merging servers within the next month.

I cancelled before my trial was up as I thought the game felt too rough, unfinished and simplistic.

Some of the issues are due to the core engine that they wont be able to change without rewriting it from the ground up.

Spore Creature Creator

@evilfoxhound

Your post is the most worthless post I have read today :o

@hahayou

EG used the first half of the first page of the review to explain to you that they are just reviewing the creator creator as it is. What do you expect to be able to do with the creator? Anything else other than what it already does would and it would not be called Creature Creator any more would it?

@Everyone else

The sheer technical achievement of this software is worth all of the 9/10 given to it and the ease of use for such an achievement is truly stunning.

Remember there will be a sequel in a few years time and I would imagine things like unsymmetrical creatures and more detailed construction will be work on :)

Hellgate is in dire straits, says designer

Fusey

10 years ago

If they had marketed the game as what it finally turned out to be then it would have been better received.

But what they did was to tell you that you were getting a fully featured MMO like WoW or similar which is so very far from the truth.

There should never had been a subscription for the full game, they should have made extra content available via microtransactions instead as that is easier to swallow for a player with this type of game.

They deserve everything they get to be honest.

Assassin's Creed: Director's Cut Edition

Fusey

This EG review is a bit too harsh to be honest.

You should review games as if there are no other versions of the game other than this PC version. Comparing it to the console versions is both unproductive and offensive to PC gamers.

I will give it 7.5/10
