Dead Island: Game of the Year Edition incoming - report

TheHitman

6 years ago

It was a decent game but in the end I think the 6s and7s it received were pretty fair. Lots of fun to be had in parts but by the end the numerous little flaws had really ground me down and I was glad to be finished.

Like most people I enjoyed The Resort considerably more than the later parts of the game.

Shenmue 1, 2 HD to launch on PSN, XBLA - report

TheHitman

@Colin8703

I admire your optimism but it seems more likely that the reason they would release 1 & 2 again is simply because lots of people are willing to pay for them.

For your sake it might be best if they don't ever make a new Shenmue. If this news has you shaking I fear you might not be able to survive a Shenmue 3 announcement.

Obsidian Fallout New Vegas deal with Bethesda meant bonus payment only with 85+ Metacritic

In fairness to the guy he hardly seems to be bitching about it. As far as I can see it was just one comment explaining to someone why Obsidian weren't better off financially despite the success of New Vegas.

ShopTo for me too.

Including a ridiculously large free t-shirt. I think they sent me Krogan size by mistake.

Gameplay signs off with 5 Gamestation.co.uk voucher

That's a shame.

Gameplay provided me with my first taste of buying games outside of the normal bricks and mortar experience.

It was mail order rather than internet then of course. And all this were just fields.

Starbreeze defends new Syndicate FPS

TheHitman

7 years ago

If they felt that sticking closely to the gameplay of the original game was too much of a risk then perhaps it might have been a good idea to aim smaller. Decrease the budget and make it a PSN/XBLA style game as customers seem much more willing to try different things if the price is right.

Average price of XBLA games increasing

TheHitman

7 years ago

1200 points definitely seems to have become the norm for major XBLA releases these days. Even so, it's hard to complain about paying just over a tenner for games of the quality of Bastion. We'll just have to see if they start increasing prices further in the future.

I saw a sealed Ico listed on eBay for about 90 the other day. Not that you want to sell it or anything ;)
----------

I've taken a gamble that Ico/SoTC are definitely being HDified and I've sold my cardboard cased copies of both for a combined 50. Should cover the cost of purchasing the new ones.

But then how would we decide which console to support. If every game was good we wouldn't know which games to hate.

There's nothing wrong with the quote you highlighted. The article states that Obsidian were unable to make a "bigger and better" sequel, not that it only scored 8 so it's garbage.

New "culturally British" test for games

TheHitman

9 years ago

@BigJonno

I agree regarding Fable 2. It does seem a very 'British' game, and not just because it's set in Albion and features a lot of west country accents.

I think the criteria would have to be a little different for games than movies, at least to begin with. There is an international market for British films as the success of 'Lock Stock', 'Shaun of the Dead' and Mike Leigh and Ken Loach films show. Not sure it'd be the same for games.

Zeno Clash heading to console

TheHitman

9 years ago

"Usually when you port there is a lot of interest in adding new features and content so the console port is interesting and people who have the PC version will say, 'Oh cool, the console version has these features added."

I'm not sure that's what they'll be saying.

Hopefully Virtua Tennis can do the same. Then at least it's a straight shootout between the games.
