Rockstar controls information so games feel "magical"

@uknortherner2000 EDIT: Sorry, @arcam

LA Noire wasn't developed by Rockstar.

I kind of see this guys point to be fair, I doubt he meant 'magical' literally.

I'm probably being really dense... but exactly what 'loss' do they want compensating for? Aren't they gaining custom if their product has more applications?

Detention for games industry

Nobuo

11 years ago

I'm going to play devil's advocate here. I have absolutely no doubt that videogames have desensitized me to violence, and more so than film or television simply because I concentrate on it harder and for longer. Isn't somebody who is indifferent to violence will be more likely to engage in it? I think so.

However I can't think of a single reason why this is the industries fault. I knew exactly what I was buying when I bought GTA and the rest of them.

Xbox's Bach dismisses PSN

Nobuo

11 years ago

Live's subscriber count is still only 8 million? I'm sure I've been hearing that figure for over a year.

I'm nowhere near bothered enough to consider paying 40 for an online service, and I imagine that applies to an absolute ton of people. At least with a free service I get to jump online whenever I like and have a quick blast without wondering if I'm getting my money's worth.

That said, I've no doubt that Live is leaps and bounds ahead of PSN, I'm just not sure online gaming is something that should be charged for in this day and age. Especially when the provider is now incuring hardly any rolling costs.

WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2008

Nobuo

At least Jeff Hardy is back on the roster. But a 6 is right, and it's good to see EG not going along with the hype (I think IGN and Yukes are sleeping together).

The last one I played was Here Comes The Pain, and I honestly think the collision detection has gotten worse. You couldn't stand face to face with your opponent and consistently miss strikes back then. But anybody who thinks the series has ever looked like the real thing is absolutely wrong, based only on the animation. And while the while the graphics are nice, the PS3 version is little better than an upscaled PS2 version as far as I can tell.

I don't know if it's due to skate. spoiling me, but after playing the demo for two minutes I dashed for my phone and sent a text to my friend (who I knew was on the way to Gamestation to pick this up), telling him not to buy it.

Very bad time for Neversoft to release a sub-standard Hawk game.

I hate how every p/review for a Smackdown game says how much better the animation is, then when it comes out it turns out to be the most embaressingly bad pile of shit in the whole world ever.

Have you ever watched a Smackdown game being played? It like watching somebody flapping two condoms around.

My first thought was "Why turn a console into a PC?", then it occured to me that since I have a kb/m plugged into my PS3 anyway I'd be very irritated if I couldn't use it for games that they are perfect for.

So yeah, kudos I guess.

Low price doesn't always mean good cost management. For a start the consoles keep breaking. Have they actually fixed the problem yet or have they just committed to keep on replacing them all?

Not that Sony are doing any better, I just think it's strange to put MS over Sony for the way they're handling their costs. They both suck.

TBF the difference in price is less than that of one game, and one of the games in the bundle is GENJI.

So as somebody who definately doesn't want Genji this bundle is more expensive.

Sonic the Hedgehog

"You get the same thing as Sonic 1 if you lock-on *any* megadrive game, regardless what it is.
I think it might've coloured the background according to the game's colour palette, too, but i'm not sure."

IIRC Sonic 1 gave you hundreds of stages to work through, and locking-on any other MD game jumped you to a specific one.

EDIT:

Yep - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_Sphere

Evidently it would take 255 years of non-stop playing to beat the game. That's VFM.

"Wow, is that true? I feel kinda sad that I never found that out."

True it is.

"Also, can anyone remember what happened when you plugged in the other games into the knuckles cart? I vaguely remember that you got some bonus stuff on Sonic 2 as well."

You get to play Sonic 2 as Knuckles, but since the levels weren't designed for his abilities it doesn't really add much.

When you 'locked-on' Sonic 1 you got to play hundreds of Sonic 3 style special stages.

Finish with 50 rings to get to the special stage.

Also on the first special stage, if you don't press anything from the start you are automatically taken to the crystals.

"10/10? It's a classic but I'd give it 8/10, personally.

S&K levels were teh awesome, moreso than S3 but of course that's no issue when it's S3&K.""

Meh, I only liked Lava Reef Zone. And it was not worth going through Sandopolis. The whole game was a bit of a grind for me.

This game is platforming perfection.

Dunno about a demo but the game has a DX8 rendering mode which makes the game very playable on surprisingly low spec machines. When you turn on the DX9 lighting though the game runs like an absolute dog. Makes a slideshow out of my X1800.
