"It's like wishing Tarantino had kept remaking Reservoir Dogs, rather than stretching himself with the soulful middle-aged paean of Jackie Brown."

Good analogy. Jackie Brown was as boring as GTA IV.

Gamer Network partners with Play Expo to bring major gaming event to northern England

SirClive

5 years ago

@barchetta There are FAQs on the website, but the answer you are looking for is...

Everyone is welcome at Play Expo, however under 16s will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian or have a signed waiver form.

Play Expo will feature some games that have an 18+ age restriction. Anyone under the age of 18 will not be allowed into the Over 18s area even if they are accompanied by an adult.

Some of the pro.play tournaments may carry age restrictions. These will be clearly marked and, where possible, advised on the website in advance.

Worst article I have read on EG. The game isn't trying to be a history lesson. It is entertainment.
Keza's final statement is as insensitive as anything in the game.

OutRun dev making "bleeding edge" game

SirClive

8 years ago

"Sumo "Virtua Tennis and Outrun developer" is so misleading it could be mistaken for deliberate lies. They *ported* those games.

Sumo themselves have done Sega Superstars Tennis and Sonic & Sega All-Star Racing."
Depends on your definition of 'port'. The OutRun games were converted from the arcade rather than ported.
They also produced Virtual Tennis World Tour for the PSP, and Virtua Tennis 2009 which were not straight ports.

FIFA 11's Personality+ system

Looks really good, but is going to make 2 player games less balanced as it will be more about how good the team you pick is rather than the skill of the person holding te controller.

Maybe the quote was actually a typo?

I have played the game (under its US title of SpeedZone) and Archer is dead right about seeing it moving. The speed and fluidity of the graphics are amazing for what is basically a last gen console. You need to see it running at 60fps to understand.

Crap XBLA games to be delisted

SirClive

This will surely increase the quality of new releases as developers will only have 9 months to peddle their crap instead of the previous infinate life on XBLA. So if the developers want the longer run then they need to release better stuff.

SirClive

These comparisons are the most boring thing on EG. How about talking about which plays best. Does the 360 controller work as well as the PS3's etc instead of all this pop up/framerate/screen blur balls that most of us won't even notice.

Professor Layton and the Curious Village

SirClive

This is my favourite DS game ever. Superb animated story (reminiscent of some Studio Ghibli stuff as others have mentioned) and some great puzzles. This is what the brain train games should be doing. Make it an enjoyable quest instead of an unrelated collection of minigames.

I am only 25 puzzles in, but am loving every minute of it.
