Ron Gilbert's match-three puzzler Scurvy Scallywags gets a trailer

Pirotic

5 years ago

Ron Gilbert and Pirates, but not Monkey Island 3? That's just cruel.

Hurry up and make it - Then we can moan it's no good and that the 'other' Monkey Island 3 was better and get it out of our system.

This looks interesting. But his last endeavour into mobile gaming was pretty crummy and bogged down with micropayment mechanics.

Neo Geo X review

Pirotic

5 years ago

This is one of those '20 games in 1' devices wearing the corpse of the NeoGeo I grew up with.

They used to charge crazy prices because what you were getting was the absolutely premium gaming experience of it's day - back when other consoles had 'arcade ports' people with more money than sense (or just a lot of love for SamShow) forked over a months wage so they could just play the actual, exquisite arcade versions.

That SNK would never have put it's games stretched on a wide-screen display, or put up with screen tearing. The only thing SNK about this system is the price!

Saturday Soapbox: Yearning Japanese

Pirotic

6 years ago

Price and region locking are the limiting factors for me these days, the 3DS has some pretty cool Jpn only software but I'll be damned if I'm buying another console just to play them. The vita account switching is also a ball ache. I think that just as many people want to import, it's just getting harder to overcome all these extra hurdles.

The thing is, this is one of those games where you know it'll be half price within weeks, so while I like the idea and want to support it - I can't justify buying it at launch knowing that I'd be kicking myself a few weeks later.

Pirotic

6 years ago

This isn't how they are doing it, they've already investigated this avenue - it takes all of 5 minutes to get a few of the hacked accounts and count how many failed login attempts they have via the live account login server.

The answer in most cases was zero.

Jurassic Park Euro release delayed until 2012

Pirotic

7 years ago

I've really gone off Telltale games recently, it feels like they are trying to do too much with too few staff. They seem to realize this themselves as they are constantly trying to get people to buy the games/bundles early with deals such as this, before they've had a chance to find out just how rushed out the door the end product is. I've fallen for it twice now, so despite the kick ass franchise I'll be staying well clear of this until some actual reviews land. They've exhaused my good faith already :P

Considering how well the engine has been optimized to get every bit of power out of the '360. I can't wait to see the party it has when running on the next gen systems which should be at least 4x as powerful.

From Dust breaks Ubisoft sales record

Pirotic

7 years ago

Good on them, glad to see a title such as this getting good sales for a change. While I found the game quite difficult to have fun with, the mechanics and setting are such a refreshing show of originality that hopefully success here will keep things going in the right direction.

But a word of warning, try the demo first - too many lazy previews have pegged it as a populous style title when it really isn't, reminded me of lemmings more than any of the bullfrog titles.

Blizzard "surprised" by Diablo 3 outrage

Pirotic

7 years ago

I think the biggest complaint is that they keep mentioning it requires always online due to 'features' but never really explain said features, it's pretty normal for a game such as this to have an offline mode, even if characters created offline are stuck offline. It feels like they are forcing always-online in this and Starcraft II before it for their own long-term goals or turning Battle.net into a subscription service.

Staggering numbers still, I'd love to see a regional breakdown as I'm sure a huge proportion of the western players have quit but have been offset by the influx of new Chinese players who don't earn them anywhere near as much money due to their pay-per-session business model.

No, they made him personally man the Virtual Boy booth at Spaceworld instead, note that spaceworld was hosted after everybody knew the system had flopped so he just stood there in shame for the day with barely any visitors, then he quit and went to work for Bandai.

PlayStation Vita to be region free?

Pirotic

7 years ago

Sony is on fire!

Only downside is that their very strict import restrictions makes it quite difficult to buy import games online from the usual haunts, I'm not too keen to resorting to ebay. But still, far far better for gamers than the 3DS forced region lock approach.

"As in Street Fighter IV, it's possible to select Japanese or English voice acting on a per character basis."

The Marvel characters don't have Japanese voices despite them having an option for it, which is weird. An oversight perhaps?
