The Ultimate year: 12 months that forged a legend

@docrob Ah yes, as AceGrace says Knight Lore was ready before Sabre Wulf not Atic Atac. But yes, I read it in an interview with the Stampers many years ago. They didn't think the market would "get" Knight Lore so they sat on it for a bit.

And that right there is my first year of Spectrum gaming. Interesting fact: Knight Lore was actually completed before Atic Atac but the Stamper's didn't think the market was ready for it.

Played JetPac, Pssst and Atic Atac to death. Cookie and Lunar Jetman were too difficult to enjoy and I thought Trans Am was a bit meh.

But these guys were synonymous with quality back in the day.

No thanks. Battlefield should have the confidence to stick with what it is good at. On those terms no other shooter comes close to what Battlefield does.

I didn't buy it because I thought the gunplay in Battlefront 1 was rubbish. If you're going to invest a lot of time in an online shooter it has to have great gunplay. The Battlefront games just don't cut it in that regard.

Conquest doesn't have a ticker counting down, it has a score that counts up! Capping and holding flags raises your team's score, as does killing enemies. First team to 1000 points wins.

A decreasing ticket count is what it used to be.

It's just the GameCube > Wii transition all over again. Same old Nintendo. It'll be the same old deal on the hardware and the same old deal on third-party support. Which is great if you're OK with that, but you're kidding yourself if you think it'll be any different.

Sony's PSN is making more money than all of Nintendo

JetSetWilly

We've been hearing the same old spin about Nintendo since the Gamecube died on its arse. Profit on the hardware, handheld dominance, large cash reserves, the new hardware is going to be mega powerful to appeal to hardcore gamers. Nothing ever changes. It's the same old Nintendo a decade on from the last time everyone was saying all this kind of stuff.

Assassin's Creed 3 review

JetSetWilly

6 years ago

Yesterday evening the ACIII banner ad on the front page featured a Eurogamer quote that said "This feels like the game we have been waiting for". This quote doesn't appear in the review text and today the Eurogamer quote in the banner add is "Hugely seductive" - which does. Wonder what has occurred there.

Surprised at the score. Sounds like the same old AC with new bloat swapped for old bloat, but still plenty of bloat. The review text feels largely negative in tone and yet out pops a 9 at thend. Compare this review with Tom's eulogy to the first AC game at the weekend, you'd think it was AC1 that earned the 9 and this that got a 7.

Assassin's Creed retrospective

JetSetWilly

6 years ago

One really simple thing I liked about the first AC was that Animus 1.0 talked to you in the loading screens.

What concerns me about the AC games now is that they're so full of bloat. I really think they need to be stripping things out and honing the assassin gameplay rather than filling it with sea battles, tower defence, assassin guilds and property ownership.

Nintendo's Iwata: "we just do not care what kind of 'more beef' console Microsoft and Sony might produce"

JetSetWilly

6 years ago

The Wii's singular achievement is to have the largest installed base and yet still be the first of this gen's platforms to die on its arse. It's a wasteland, a dead platform for the last three years. Iwata has presided over this, over the 3DS launch debacle and Nintendo's first loss; as far as predicting the future for Wii U I would say he is anything but bullet-proof in that regard.

He should care what Microsoft and Sony do. Nintendo's products don't exist in a vacuum yet both Iwata and Reggie carry on as if they do. Things that Microsoft and Sony do with their platforms that are successful become part of what people expect a home console to do, and what content providers expect to be able to do with it. When the mindshare of consumers and content creators moves against your platform/philosophy you've got a mountain to climb to turn that around. Look at how well RIM have done burying their head in the sand till it was too late by ignoring what Apple were doing with touch-screen phones and the App Store.

Now Nintendo are trying to solve the same "problem" that they failed to solve in 2006 (Remember: Wii will change everything, Wii will play together, the "ii" representing people coming together to play video-games) and trying to present it as something new they've just thought of.

If Nintendo made cars they'd launch their new model with a manual choke and no power-steering and sell it to you like their omission was some great virtue.

@Mr.Spo Because if the multiplayer is a worthwhile experience Nintendo should recognise that is far easier for people to match-up online than it is for them to be in the same room. This is not a social game like Wii Sports where you might hope your family would show a modicum of interest.
