Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars

TheStylishHobo

Actually I really wouldn't.

If it was made my an English-speaking studio, then I'd be curious to as why they chose such an odd name, but if it were made by Chinese studio, I really wouldn't and I doubt many other people would.

And don't worry, I have evidence too. Phoenix Wright:Ace Attorney, the crazily popular DS game gives it's main character abnormal name, yet I have not heard a single person, not one person, complaining about this. Phoenix is rare as a second name, but unheard of as a first name, and yet people - don't - care.

Was there any good reason for them making TVs with 768p instead of 720p?

About your Harry Potter MMO, although the universe has huge potential, I really don't think it is possible because there is such a huge focus on Harry Potter. Then again, Age of Conan...

Looks really good.

I hope they can get the AI right. Most people will be soloing for most of the time, so if they don't get the AI right, it's going to cause a major problem. I also hope they make the missions enjoyable and not too much like old world WoW which is 99.99% "kill/collect this many".

Beyond these two major possible problems, everything else looks good :] Hard to go wrong with the lore, graphics looks good and I love the level of customisation they are planning to offer.

P.S Lets hope they put a word filter on user names that contain "Kirk", "Picard", "Sisko" etc.

I heard a lot of pirates saying they were actually going to buy this because it was so awesome. I doubt half of those people will buy the game now.

After watching the last two movies and playing the demo I certainly agree that the character has been done a great deal of justice. Brilliant portrayal in the movies. Brilliantly written, voiced and designed in the game. \o/

@WinterSnowblind

I completely agree arguing is pointless. When things are this close to call it's a matter of opinion, not fact. I wasn't saying one is better than other in a matter of fact manner, I was simply stating my opinion. To which MuscleBlade then replied criticising my opinion as if it was somehow universally wrong ^^

I don't see why you have any reason to believe that I have or haven't. I have proof the I have played the 360 exclusives of which you refer to, check my gamer profile. I can't prove that I have played the PS3 exclusives, but since you are advocating the superiority of 360 exclusives then you only really need to see that I have played the 360 exclusives.

I like the PS3 exclusives better than the 360 exclusives. That's my reason. But back to the aforementioned point, money is a stronger reason.

I'm already incredibly impressed with the 360 pricing, but if they move the Elite into the Premium's price range it would just become ridiculously good value.

I would actually rather have a PS3 than a 360 if money wasn't an object, but sadly it is and because of this, I'll choose the amazingly cheap 360 over the expensive PS3 any day.

Aren't there plenty of free vpns?

I use one called Hotspot shield for US only content (which unlike a proxy, is not defeated by anti-proxy technology and keeps my normal speed) and that one is free.

Surely there is a UK based free equivalent.

Not sure how people can say Messenger is a huge failure when it is by a longshot the post popular instant messenger today, and has been for probably over a decade now. That would seem like a pretty massive success in itself.

I'll be using IGN for my live feed as they have an immensely good live player called "Move". I was on a 512kb connection last year and it still gave me seamless high quality video.

Looking forward to reading this while listening to the audio heavy parts of the conference :]

There's nothing to really complain about. If you don't like having achievements just ignore them, then the people who do like them will enjoy it and everyone is happy. No one is forcing you into doing them, they are just there if you want to do them.

Oh and another thing, I imagine most people supporting the game aren't actually active in the EG community, but flooding in with anger from that thread on their website that linked here.

I would be more inclined to believe the people who were defending it if they weren't getting so damned worked up about it... By being hyper-defensive you achieve nothing, and also comply with the raging nerd stereotype.

I understand that it's technically circular logic because no matter what you say, even if you genuinely have good points to make, that you are classed as a raging nerd, but for fucks sake, don't be so petty about a bad review.

It's not wrong to do, I mean, I have a girlfriend...

I know everyone else does not have a girlfriend, but I have a girlfriend...

So please don't judge me, I have a girlfriend after all...

P.S You may not get why I think it is okay, so just to double check, I do have a girlfriend, so it's okay, because I do in fact have a girlfriend.
