Resi Evil: Mercs 3D: no save data reset

Surely you would be able to start a new game and overwrite an existing save though?

Otherwise you'll only be able to play it through as many times as there are save slots??

GAME's 190 Nintendo 3DS trade-in price

TheStatics

7 years ago

Struggle to see anything bad with this really.

They are selling it for 197 online and guaranteeing you a maximum loss of 17 (less than 10%) if you decide within a month that you don't like it.

I wish I had an option like this on every thing I bought!

Nintendo 3DS price: Tesco says sorry

TheStatics

7 years ago

Sweet Jesus H.

Tesco claim the price was a mistake. They are not obliged to honour it, regardless of whether they've taken your money or not.

If you're not happy with this, don't try to take advantage of online offers which may/may not be pricing errors (despite EG advising that they had confirmed with Tesco that the price was correct!!).

Is the idea not that the subscription costs and pricing structure are offset by the fact you don't need to buy a console or gaming PC.

Need to go back and have a look at the comment sections when this was 1st announced... Quite a bit of egg on face now the system is a reality.

Tech Analysis: Alan Wake

@Dagas "Most games on 360 run at a sub-HD resolution thanks to the 10MB EDRAM framebuffer. You can either get 720p without AA or sub-720p with AA. It seems like people think it's a big deal when they have spotted a sub-HD game while in reality it is much harder to spot an HD game on the 360."

Japan charts: Dragon Quest IX rules roost

TheStatics

9 years ago

Japanese sales wise, I always see it as simple as:

360 - Probably selling as MS expected it do, not great but an improvement on the Xbox (what wouldn't have been!).
PS3 - So far, I've no doubt Sony are massively down on where they thought they would be.
Wii - Exceeded all expectations I'm sure.

I know the Japanese like their gadgets but I think it will be stretching it to suggest that the new slim model will have a revolutionary impact on PS3 sales.

Note - I have a 360 and PS3 and have previously owned a Wii... Just before I get some ill-informed anger aimed towards me!

The games, whilst different in aspects are generally all the same. Exploration, find something that lets you in the next dungeon, travel to dungeon, solve puzzle, kill boss, get new heart container, get item to open up new area to explore... repeat.

Individually the games are all great but it's the same thing over and over and over.

Someone should really explain to MS and Sony that the majority of people that buy their games are pretty much happy with using a controller. The other lot have already bought a Wii and are unlikely to buy another console.

Surely an analyst somewhere will realise soon that there may not actually be a market for these novelty add-ons on the big boys consoles!
