Wii U Wii U Wii U: Is it time to call an ambulance for Nintendo's console?

Santino

5 years ago

Surprised to see Retro studios mentioned as a 3rd party by a site such as EG. They have been a 1st party studio for over a decade.

Anyway, hopefully whatever they are working on is shown soon, personally hoping for a new Metroid game.

Wii U-exclusive Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge to go multiplatform

Santino

5 years ago

Massive fan of NBG and NG2.

Bought razor's edge thinking if it just has NG2 combat it will be fun enough even if the rest of the game is bad, it's not the same and it's not fun.

Would encourage anyone and especially fans of the series to avoid this at all costs on any platform and just play the originals, I wish I did.

Team Ninja Dog indeed.

Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown release date, price announced

Santino

So I will be around 15 for the game and all of Akira's items? That is cheaper than I was expecting.

Will ask in the forum as well but if anybody is interested in exchanging a good quality 360 stick for my ps3 Street Fighter 4 Tournament Edition Stick give me a shout.

Editor's Blog: In Memory of Allie Fraser

Santino

7 years ago

Must echo the sentiments about this being a great gesture that will hopefully raise more awareness. I just wish he was still with us as I know for a fact he would be chuffed to bits to have made the front page here!

As mentioned in the forum, Susan is going to begin looking into publishing the blog next week, with all proceeds going towards one of his favorite charities so please donate if you can manage.

I might as well mention I have emailed a few developers of racing games with a bit of a strange request, asking if any of them could make a small tribute to Allie by including his name as an A.I driver so he can continue to lap. If anybody has any ties to someone who could try and make something like this happen please bring it up, as far fetched as it may be.

RIP Allie, you'll never be forgotten.

Ninja Gaiden 3 to reboot series

I'm hoping they keep the combat engine (best in the genre by a mile imo) and keep it to fighting other ninja type enemies.

Bleszinski explains Gears movie hold-up

Santino

8 years ago

I still think making a movie of these (or almost any) games and their B-movie storylines is a ridiculous idea. It is no wonder they don't want the film to have a large budget as the only audience that will watch it will be the relatively small gears fanbase.

there is no chance that list will come close to being correct. Pretending a certain publisher/developer that usually dominates lists like these doesn't exist isn't exactly the smartest way to go about compiling one.

maybe if they had realized that the resi light gun shooter sold on the back of resi 4's success they would have made a proper entry to the series that people actually wanted. nobody wanted a sequel to umbrella chronicles they wanted resi 4 type gameplay.

Eurogamer's Game of the Year 2009

Santino

8 years ago

i played and enjoyed this game but i am a bit confused about the sheer amount of overwhelming praise this game gets, to the point where you feel its not safe to make a comment about any of its flaws without getting jumped on. it does what it sets out to do very well but there were a few times i found myself getting a bit bored of the repetitive gameplay elements and there were also a few too many cutscenes for my liking.

As a technical showcase the game does a superb job but i wasn't blown away by any other aspect which is why i dont really understand the reputation this game has generated, i thought it was a very good game but not a great one.

Happy new year everybody

God of War Collection

Santino

9 years ago

"With what criteria do you give an upscaled ( more or less ) PS2's title a 9/10 on the PS3? Dont gwet me wrong, great value, good game and all... But its a PS2, with not everything in higher resolution, game. I dont know if my question is clear on what and how im asking it."

i think it might be because these 2 games are still better than almost everything that has been released on the ps3 so far.

I bought my copy from an ebay seller as it was a UK seller, but mine didn't come with a demo code, i take it only some copies do? where is the logic in that?

IW wanted you "close to atrocity" in MW2

Santino

9 years ago

i usually always go good when given the chance. first thing i did was shoot at the bad guys standing beside me, which of course the game doesnt allow. After that i just made my way through the level stopping to put the odd npc out of their virtual misery, and eventually just started to shoot everything for a bit of fun. Even if you choose to 'be the good guy'' and not shoot any civilians you are then forced to shoot the swat teams that show up to get out of there and finish the level! what a mess the game is storywise it must be said.
