I think its to late. They needed to flood the market and get it every where possible this xmas. I think people will just wait for nextbox or PS4 now. I would get one if I could, just pop in into Sainsbury's. Sadly no one has one to try or buy near me. If i'm thinking that so are another 50% !

Saturday Soapbox: Adult Gaming

I would love a game where you smash up a self service till based on different ways of rendering in operable. The goal would be find out all 1000 as you progress through the levels. joking aside I am finding myself drawn to more simulation games like Arma ,FSX ,GT ,IL2 and CLOD. They are a much slower pace than all these top AAA titles (Skyrim exception). Also the Modding seen is absolutely superb. this keeps the interest going and allows for a greater gaming experience . Plus I love the learning curve and the challenge these sorts of games provide. gaming since 1982 :)

Cant help but think that the quality of the graphics is wasted on a run and gun game.. Needs to be more adventure/RPG to enjoy all the hard work that has gone into the game engine. "I was looking at the detail of a leaf before I was killed" sorta takes over...

Google play looks great. its no wonder all the best game designers are up fingering and going alone. If they get a good game out there they cant fail. Also they wont get mugged off by the likes of EA, ACTI and UBI etc. This were the good games are coming from and will continue to come from......I might very well perchase....:)

DICE: Battlefield 3 story "is still just the beginning"

GI-Joel

6 years ago

@sopaman Mate you have to understand that BF1942 had some great MODS DC 0.7 to name one and it was FREE. Now, no one minds paying for extra content if its good. The problem is 1. The strategy that they are using is pure greed. Advanced purchase? really? 2. Most gamers here remember the time a patch would give you a new map and may be a new gun. Its a reward as such, a thank you for being loyal. now you get 6 divided by fuck all in a patch. Just something that should have been done before the game was released. Even BF2 we had a new map as a thanks while bugs were sorted. Everyone is getting pissed of with it. they would be better off putting slightly less content on a pay download to counter the above. Thats my view. They need to manage expectations better as I might not being typing this now as well :) Gaming needs te balance back from corporateness.

PC phenomenon DayZ hits 500,000 players milestone

GI-Joel

It reminds of how great gaming was late 90s early 2000 on the PC. Even more so now that my fath has been nearly fully restored. Gives me hope for the future for games. Big devs need to take heed of DAYZ. Lets not hope that it comes to console. Most console gamers are not ready to play this yet. Best of all it has been made by a Modder (good luck) dont get destroyed by the likes of acti and EA. I salute you:champ:

everyone is right.. Its all there. The fear is that when they open hood of the WII U and see its a Audi R8 shell with a Lada engine, Everyone is gona cry. Hell, it has happened every time since the N64 and its going to happen again. No talk of spec at all :( Us hardcore gamers want convincing. I want a machine that plays the latest greatest games at ultra high res with the best graphics. That is all we want really. No bullshit Apps,Media,IE,Ads,crap huds with film and music being rammed down our throats. All I want is a games machine so I can say "Doris off to bed, sex tomorrow night" i want to get involved in spamming some American trash talking tool :).

I guess its gona be PC under my tv loaded with what I want to do. That is it, PC. Its the only platform I can mould into what I want..

I am looking for the return of Nintendo. What I would really like, is to see them looking after the hardcore gamer. MS have the market currently, however if Nintendo can win over me with a good interface and no bullshit ad media bollocks coupled with excellent 3rd party support I will jump for joy. MS have damaged their brand with the above and stand to lose a large percentage next round if they continue the march to xboxtvyoutubemusicmotionADVERTfilmsky hell. I for one can't wait to see what is gona happen.. come on Nintendo!!!! SNES EM......

If i were BT i would sieze the day. Keep fight the ban will get them more customers.pay the fines gain more customers from virgin. Go bt go. LoL. The big danger is people will drop the internet. The other danger is people wont be paying top doller for sevice they have had for the last 14 years. Free media is a main driver for high priced internet. What other reason would you pay 35 quid a month out for? Not unlimited downloads :) . This could light the blue touch paper. BT could be replaced over night and they know it. This is a fucking nightmare really, for all internet users.

Personally for me xbox has had its day. Its lost direction trying to be everything but failing because of greed. My 3rd xbox died last month. Tried to get my live 6 months paid up and ms points credited back but was pasted the 30 days policy. They can keep it, halo is great but i lived without it prior to 2002 so i can do it again. M$ can rape everyone else but will not rip me a new one anymore, im done. Their next xbox will just build on what they have already done. Guys n'gals its time to wake up and smell the coffee.. Im glad i lived in golden age of gaming.. It was great....
