I mean, will they be releasing Revolution II? If so, won't that be the same thing as the current console, possibly with better graphics?

Well, obviously 0_o

That's what Sony and MS are going to do as well.

The next generation of consoles is going to suck if stats like this keep appearing.MS and Sony will just copy the Wii next time around and every new release will be essentially a Flash game with waggle controls.

The odd gem might come out every two or three months though, like what happens currently with the Wii. Whoop-de-do.

Sony E3 Conference

10 years ago

Well that was crap. Load of stuff we already knew about.

Been a bad E3 all around. None of the lineups announced are really impressing me much. Besides the 'shock' of FF13 on the 360 (i have all three consoles so i could give a shit about it) it's been pretty piss poor.

Final Fantasy XIII coming to 360

Ja_Long

10 years ago

Not coming out on the 360 in Japan?

Net effect = about 500,000 copies sold on 360 between the US and Europe.

I'll definitely be getting it for the PS3 because it's quieter, has a bigger HDD in it for the install because i only have a 20gb 360 and my 360 is showing signs of dying as well so i tend to get multiformat stuff on the PS3 anyway.

FF sells best in Japan and the 360 doesn't. This will only really effect US and maybe EU sales.

No matter how hard Funcom try with content etc. for this game, WoW will still kick it's ass. LOTRO is the next closest competitor and while it is good, i went back to WoW after a couple of months.

The only thing that will compete with WoW will be WoW 2.

I got as far as the beginning of disc 3 and realised that the game was painfully avergae and i can't be bothered to finish it.

It's also too easy as standard and the voice acting and characters are annoying as hell. I was cringing at every cutscene.

Well, the way i look at it, i'd rather read a long review of a good game than a long review of a shit/average game, mostly because i won't care that much about the shit/average game and as a result won't want to read a whole lot about it.

Played Starcraft a while ago after seeing it recommended numerous times.

Bit shit in my opinion. The zerg where massively overpowered so it wasn't that much fun to play either as them or against them.

World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade

Ja_Long

11 years ago

No, just no.

I play a bit of WoW with my friends and i find that the experience depends an awful lot on who you play with. When soloing i find the game to be an incredibly boring grindy, collect em up but when grouping it is much more enjoyable.

For this reason alone neither the game nor the expansion pack deserves more than an 8. Plus most MMORPGs are pretty much the same thing anyway so if you've played one you've played them all.

One of the worst reviews i've ever read here.

The reviewer didn't like an F1 simulation because it was to much of a simulation.

It's no wonder i mostly only come here for the forum lately.

Games don't get high marks unless they're oddities or indy games.

EG should just add the extra couple of letters and call themselves EDGE.
