Wii U launches in Europe on November 30th

@DreadedWalrus It's been hours and hours and it's still not top story. It's ridiculous.

The thing is, the "most popular" story tend to stay that way because people click on the biggest story because it's the first thing they see.

There is a reason newspaper sites have "most popular" in a small case to the side and make their own decisions about what's the biggest news.

EG, today Nintendo announced major news for their new console, but the top story on your front page is a preview for a Star Trek game. This sort of thing is the reason I don't go to your site for gaming news anymore. I think you need to rethink how you present things on the front page.

I played a Jedi knight to lvl 50 but I was so bored of it in the end. It's pretty much "Running Through Empty Landscapes: The Game". Don't think even f2p can lure me back. If only we could have had KOTOR 3.

I know this isn't really the place for this, but EG, do you think you could get on the ol' horn and ask Blizzard why their game still isn't working two weeks after launch? Seems like that's sorta newsworthy.

PS Plus has given £700 worth of content

"I don't understand the negativity of some people. PS+ offers excellent value for money end of. "

Like fuck it does. I've been a member since January, and since then, the only game I've really had a good time with was Stacking. The rest have been age old Sonic games, the worst PS1 titles on the market, some minis and Burnout Paradise that I played ages ago. Maybe if you calculate the full price of everything it seems like a good deal, but I would never ever pay for most of what they serve up, and even free it's not worth your time.

"So seems like they had a good case for a lawsuit on their hands, does it say why they didn't pursue this? "

Yeah, it says specifically that they didn't have the money for a legal battle. Bo Andersson is also quoted as saying that he "suffered from revenge feelings" after they closed.

"Bröderna övervägde att stämma förläggaren men insåg snart att en rättsprocess skulle kunna stå dem dyrt."
- The brothers considered suing the publisher but soon had to realise that a court process could be expensive for them". (edited in)

Wow, this is a really shoddy news story.

Aftonbladet isn't a Swedish "site", it's a tabloid newspaper with a circulation of 1,5 million.

They don't say in the article it was a FFXII spinoff, just that it was a FF spinoff.

The brothers said that the milestones WERE met, and had been assured as much by mail, but that SE later said they had sent them to the wrong persons, and that the legal department should have had them too.

And you omitted the part where SE asked for the entire code to be sent by fax, including music files.

"Duke Nukem. Spanking is a must.

Actually that reminds me: The game Monty Python and the Holy Grail had a minigame called Spank the Virgin. I don't remember that causing a huge fuss.

Edit: Of course that was more consensual, I guess you have to make that distinction.

2nd edit: I can't believe I'm participating in this discussion.

There actually isn't a great many examples of multiplayer taking quality away from singleplayer. If you look at Uncharted 2, Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, Red Dead etc., the singleplayer was every bit as substantial as you could wish for IMO. So even with multiplayer, I still have high hopes for ME3.
