Volition dev: next Xbox not playing pre-owned games would be "fantastic"

MrVengeance

6 years ago

There is no doubt that the second hand market is having an impact on new game sales in a negative way, particularly when the likes of GAME are pushing it so hard, but I would not support this as it would mean that these games would be all but worthless when you played them. These games wouldn't be collectable or saleable on eBay in years to come for example.

GAME confirms talks with lenders have begun, hints at overseas sell-off

They really shouldn't have messed up so bad - I used to love GAME with a passion, even though I used to work for one of their rivals - GAME had great prices, a superb range of NEW games, a nice atmosphere and good staff in their shops. Then...


Then they became cunts, and now they are fucked. Sad but there you go.

GameStop closes Northern Ireland stores

MrVengeance

6 years ago

I used to work for these guys before US giant Gamespot bought into them - they were once a small Irish owned chain of stores called "Games World" and they were excellent. Great on price and customer service, if perhaps not the best on selection compared to GAME back then.

I knew the move into the UK market was a bad idea with all the competition. Its no surprise they are pulling out. They should have stuck to what they knew - the Irish consumer. I suppose it was all down to their new masters in the US, who wanted a stepping stone into Europe. No surprise it hasn't worked out based on my own experiences with the firm here in Ireland.

I do not believe their Republic-based operations are in any danger right now as they do a seriously good trade on second hand - they do it far better than the likes of GAME and HMV. Probably why GamesStop bought into them in the first place. They have also recently opened a shop in Stillorgan so its unlikely they are about to go bust.

Having said all that, as others have said, they need to sort out their high prices for new games - far, far too expensive for new releases in comparison to online, and even GAME themselves!!

No mention of its role in developing and supporting the superb PC Engine console during the late 80s/early 90s? Surely the publisher's golden era.

Ten player Saturn Bomberman really was something too.


The games industry is changing and these big names are disappearing or restructuring at an alarming rate. I'm genuinely concerned for the likes of SNK Playmore and Nippon Ichi going forward....

King of Fighters 13 netcode patch in the works

MrVengeance

6 years ago

This is a phenomonal game with amazing gameplay, superb visuals and fast, responsive controls. This is a far more enjoyable fighting game than the more well-know Street Fighter IV.

People should get out there and support niche Japanese games like this or else they won't be released over here anymore. Rising Star Games is putting out some superb titles recently so people, if you care about quality software coming to Europe from Japan vote with your wallets and don't wait until this is second hand / in a bargain bin.

Less sales of Call of Duty, Fifa and Battlefield and more sales of DoDonPachi and King of Fighters 13 will do wonders for our games industry!

Less is more oftentimes.

Game Group interview: is it really that bad?

MrVengeance

6 years ago

The usual denial-filled PR guff.

He's going on that its the end of the hardware cycle - is it though? I've heard nothing about the PS4 or Xbox 720 yet. Only Nintendo is talking about a new home format, which is a year away and not more powerful than what we have right now. Hardly a new era in gaming approching any time soon is it?

Also, this hardware generation is in full swing if you ask me - look at the amount of fantastic games out at the minute - surely GAME should be racking the cash in at the minute, tough economic times or not. No matter how skint you get, you'll surely get some games for Christmas at the very least.

The problem for GAME is they're uncompetitive and have shite customer service. They can jog on as far as I'm concerned. Everyone hates them so they may as well fuck off now and be done with it.

Game Group's share price nose dives

MrVengeance

6 years ago

There are a raft of problems with how GAME does business:

- Pricing is uncompetitive with everyone.

- New games are often sold unsealed - thus not new at all. Discs are scratched in the drawers and boxes get beaten-up on the shelves. There is a hole in the case for a security tag - why not use it? Would mean new games were actually new for the customer, and discs wouldn't go missing in the drawers and staff wouldn't have to spend all that time "gutting" games anymore....

- Far too much emphasis on pre-owned. Where's the back catalogues gone for new games? They are practically non-existant. All you get its shelves full of overpriced and often scratched up second hand games. With free pubes in. Charming.

- Staff need to leave people alone. Does a man in his twenties really need "help" five seconds after walking in the door of a game shop? Seriously? Its effing annoying EVERY TIME YOU GO IN. Leave me alone please! Fair enough a bewildered looking mother of young children, but come on! 99% of blokes know what they are doing, so leave them be - you will only put them off buying anything if you pester them.

- Employees need to know and care about the product, so if I ask if they have a release date for Dondonpachi Resurrection or Disgaea 4 I'm not looked at like I'm a headcase.

That would be a start. And if they implemented the above I would return to buying from them again - no problem.


I personally wouldn't have any problem if the company went belly up as it is. Obviously I wouldn't like to see job losses, but GAME won't be missed if / when they do go to the wall. They are an hopeless organisation that have lost their way over the last ten years. Its such a pity as I remember GAME being superb back in the day. I suppose the people on the board are all cunts now, so there you go.

Why Star Fox 64 3D isn't online

MrVengeance

7 years ago

What a joke. They tart up an ancient game, put it out for FULL PRICE, but won't put in an online mode - it was in Street Fighter IV 3D, why not this? BECAUSE HEY COULDN'T BE ARSED, and just want to make as much money as possible putting out cheap to make games for full price.

I have not doubt its a good game in the end, but we all played it years ago and we expect, nay demand better from Nintendo, who just aren't the same as they were ten years ago. They are now lazy, greedy cunts who make hardly any games anymore, and the ones they do make are either remakes, indentikit sequels orcomplete rubbish.

And all that is coming from a former Nintendo fanboy.

Game of the Week: Radiant Silvergun

MrVengeance

7 years ago

"Radiant Silvergun! Say it. Sing it. Above all, play it. Because, at long last, you can."

I've had it for quite some time already, like a lot of the shoot 'em-up fans on Eurogamer. The HD release is a great game though for other less committed gamers to try out. My main concern with its release however is the very poor demo, which begins at a very tricky part of the game, before thankfully ending at one of the game's best bosses.

The deoo is too short and very inaccessible then. Why not let players just start from the beginning and play it through for a few stages? Would have been a lot better in my view then plonking them straight into the middle of the second level....

Having said that, the demo looks great all the same, and the overall port is truly wonderous. A great game that everyone with an ounce of sense needs to pick-up now that its as cheap as chips. Just don't judge it on that brief, and brutally hard demo!

I was in the biggest and best known "arcade" in Dublin the othe day - its just full of gambling machines and gun games. The only traditional cabinets were two Sega Lindbergs running Virtua Fighter 5 and Virtua Tennis 2009. I played Virtua Fighter, but to my total horror two out of the the three buttons were broken! So basicly it was unplayable.

Is it any wonder that arcades are finished if this is the state cabinets are in? From what I hear, this is quite common, and isn't the first time I have encountered a broken button on a cab....
