I'll probably get negged but I'm interested to know more. For the Tiger Woods franchise in particular, I should be able to download a course - St. Andrew's ONCE and then it works in TW12 and TW13 and TW14.
As I say, just want to know more.

Nintendo announces new home console

Resident Evil 6 to be a launch title - I hope.

Good news about the new Ninty console, should turn the heat up on PS360, (esp 360 if Blu-ray is confirmed at E3). Its time that wind of change blew through again.

Tesco has a pop at GAME over 3DS furore

Lotos8ter

7 years ago

I would stake a testicle that the consoles that were bought by GAME staff from Tesco were sold to Game's customers at FULL price, in this case 229.99. They've sold preowned stuff at full price before, these scum wouldn't have any qualms about selling these 3DS at full price as the boxes hadn't been opened.

Has anyone who bought from GAME been offered one of these "pre-owned" 210 consoles? Don't all shout at once.

Edit - the bundled game will be sold at full price too, which is 40 from GAME. So they pay 209.90 from Tesco and resell for 269.98 by my maths.

Ghost Recon/Ass Creed films coming?

Lotos8ter

7 years ago

@ulikmegee - my thoughts exactly.
I'd prefer Ubisoft to concentrate on making the game than seeking an opinion on making a film of them.
Ghost Recon could have lead the way as a premier shooter on all formats, instead they're playing catch-up with Acti/EA when what they had was a better product to begin with.

Always wanted to type this, "I'm with (the) Kinky Mong" :D
The extra missions interest me over a melee/shooter boosting coat and I've never had a problem with GAME.

EDIT - Having said that, I'd much rather all the retailers had the same version with all the bonuses but they don't so I'll go where I get the best package.

Lotos8ter

March ain't a date, it's a month.

Unearthed is supposed to be the new Firefight map but the other 2 are MP maps

Edit: Condemned is set on an Orbital Space Station and is for 6-12 players
Highlands is for 8-16 players and is set in a wilderness training facility, in the woods.
Unearthed is the new Firefight map (4 plyrs obv.) set in a titanium mine/refinery type setting

There'll be an extra 150G gamerscore associated with the DLC

Did no-one notice the date at the end of the video - 6/1/11? Probably the release date - i.e. 1st June or thereabouts

Homefront

@cianchristopher - I think THQ/KAOS have made no secret that they want some of COD's pie and Frontlines was a decent enough game. This looks very good indeed though.

As someone who moans about Call of Duty games, then buys the yearly update only to spend months feeling very dirty, I'm extremely eager to see what the finished game will be like. Fingers crossed for an accessible yet deep FPS that actually brings something new to the table.

Claim a Dead Rising 2 Psycho Pack

I think "theme" is misleading isn't it? I thought the psychopath pack (along with soldier/ninja/sports packs) give you 4 items of themed clothing for your Chuck character in Dead Rising 2, along with character perks - off the top of my head psychopath gives extra damage resistance????
They aren't dashboard themes or I'm completely headrest

Dead Rising 2: Case West

Lotos8ter

7 years ago

@metalangel - Yes, exactly that in my opinion. I've completed it and I found the locations rather lacking compared to the main game or even Case zero. Having said that, it works well for fans of the series and at least Capcom are taking it out of the Mall this time.
I'd give it 7/10 - good solid game that extends the Dead Rising experience but the game world and annoying enemies with firearms peg it back a little.

This is what the billion dollars that BlOps made is going to pay for - a field day for the lawyers. Acti aren't trying to dominate the opposition by making better games, they're simply trying to crush them in a court.

I think I've bought my last Acti game.
Greed. Pure, fucking greed.

AC: Brotherhood update announced

If I change my armour, I lose all my parachutes. And they're expensive.
I frequently lose my sword during combat. No idea where it goes.
I lose the double Assassin blade in those Lairs of Romulus, it just becomes the single blade.
On one occasion I was given the instruction to take no damage for 100% sync, and then got twatted by a guard 0.005 seconds later.
In all honesty, Brotherhood was a good game, but in my opinion a step back from its predecessor.

Dead Space 2 demo confirmed

Lotos8ter

7 years ago

For anyone contemplating a purchase depending on the demo - a word of warning. The first game was frackin' awesome with shed-loads of atmosphere in a well-paced campaign BUT the demo released was combat heavy, poorly realised and not particularly representative of the finished game. So, just bear that in mind as this demo will likely be similar - a mature gamer needs a kiss and a cuddle before they get fucked.
Cheers.

The list of games is on Game's website and you can't change the games, or buy 2 copies of BlOps or cross platforms either.

How many copies did Rock Band 3 sell?

I think there's a certain arrogance with the makers of these music games that the customers want regular updates, better peripherals, an endless supply of songs on the marketplace to download each week. And I don't.
I enjoyed RB 1 &2 but I'm not buying any more for the foreseeable future and it looks like I'm far from alone.
