Amazon chat were really helpful, though.

From these videos, it appears Nintendo thinks two things: That we all have huge converted warehouse apartments, and that that's really how families interact when playing games.

@Baihu1983 Actually, Online sales are included, from all the top retailers. And @RyBoy, for any other week this year, before this week, Borderlands 2 would still be number one.

Biggest result - F1 2012 - although it's a massive improvement on last year. Well deserved.

HTC One X Review

ShakaCarnage

6 years ago

Just to offer some balance here - I received my One X on Wednesday last week, and I've charged it four times. On an average non working day, I'm getting about 30 hours. On my average working day, which is in and out of London, and solid use for about an hour before work, and four hours after work (depending on if I moan about Liverpool not playing well), I get about 24 hours.

I use it for music, taking photos, video, games and general phone use.

That said, some have had issues with battery, so perhaps is a build issue - but most likely a software issue, with some countries having received 1.27 OTA, which is what reviewers have received, while the general public are on 1.26.

Having come from a Desire HD, the One X is a great, great phone, with a fantastic camera. Sure, it could gobble a little less battery, but with what the phone does, I'd be surprised if it did.

Caine's Arcade: a nine-year-old's cardboard dreamland and a wonderful surprise

ShakaCarnage

6 years ago

This film is about one kids imagination, and a film maker who was blown away by his idea, and his dedication. It's about the connected world hearing about it, and I'd imagine the donations are those that remember the early days of video games, where they sat side by side next to pinball machines and pool tables.

That is why, I believe, EG is covering it. Ultimately, though - like television - If it isn't your bag, read another story.

Editor's blog: Top 50 Post-Mortem

ShakaCarnage

10 years ago

I'd put my reputation on the line to say that FIFA 09 grabs PES 2009 by the balls, swings it around its head and smashes its torso to the floor for maximum damage.

Or, it's just a better simulation of football. Turn everything off, auto-switching to zero, game speed to slow and match length to 20 mins. Bliss.

Eurogamer's Top 50 Games of 2008: 10-1

I am rather disappointed. WHY IS TIME TRIALS 2 not at number one brambers? Seriously, I lost three months of the year to that game. It has Xbox Live Arcade written all over it. And if it did, I'd say this:

"Let me just say something - put it out there... I want to be on you."

You're In The Movies

ShakaCarnage

10 years ago

I've actually played this a little, and while my thoughts don't warrant a full blown review, I'd have to disagree with the final score. 2/10 is a little over the top.

Rather than worry about passable movie trailers, why not let slip your own personal feelings about camera games, and just compare it to Eyetoy and the like. That way, the score would be justifiable. However, to spend the whole second page talking about how awkward the game is to get working, that's just a bit naff. Granted, not every house has a white room with awesome lights, but that doesn't stop Eyetoy from working, nor does it in this instance.

That said, you didn't expect it to be a 9/10 readers, did you?

GDC: Microsoft Keynote LiveText

I'm going for Gears of War 2, because I have a strong feeling that it's going to happen. We'll see mentions of games coming up this year, including Fable 2, which Shappert will mention si getting a keynote of its own, rather than dragging on.

Then, we'll get XNA stuff too. Most probably mentioning the student giveaway, and possible giving creators a place on the dash to show and sell their wares.

Finally, I'm not sure they're ready to announce a Blu-ray addon, or internal drive. Great if they do, but I'm thinking they might announce some price cuts...I could be wrong, I could be rightahhh.

Great Article Rob, excellent read.

As much as I'm slightly an Xbox Fanboy (Like Roop), even I can't deny the impact the playstation has had on this industry. People such as Ken Kutaragi should be remembered and honoured by all gamers, not just those of the PlayStation ilk.

*Raises glass to Ken- Daddy PlayStation*
