Enjoy these write-ups, although it's a shame that your i3/750ti frame-rate tests seem to be on the decline.

Higher end tests are great, but adding in your lower end 'console matching' PC often gives a great idea of how well a port has been done, plus it covers a much higher percentage of PC gamers in the process.

So, who's the Remember Me voice actress?

Zeburdee

Christ alive - the quality of both reporting and writing on Eurogamer is becoming worse every week (if that's even possible).

As has been said, what the f&^k has this (yet another) misleading article got to do with focusing on the voice actress?

Still, at least the level of reporting matches the professionalism of the author's bio pic.

Fallout New Vegas: Lonesome Road

Zeburdee

Sure, reviews are purely opinion and all. But I have to wonder if Dan gets given certain reviews in order to ramp up the controversy.

Most of them read like Marvin The Paranoid Android giving a speech at a euthanasia convention. And many of them seem way off the mark in relation to the target gamer for the specific game being reviewed.

Not saying this isn't a valid set of criticisms for Lonesome Road (not having played it yet), it's just becoming a stretch too far (for me anyway) to put much weight into the validity of them.

"urgh i don't think so. its had a few good games but the rest of the games are trash, tacked on motion control and the interface is one of the worst interfaces in console history."Always good to hear sputum spouted forth by those who've evidently never/barely touched the console and actually 'gamed' with it while the good stuff spins in its drive (and though more would always be nice, there is *plenty* of the good stuff).Usually this is due to their knuckle-drag on the floor preventing proper wiimote holding.

Identity Theft

Utterly ridiculous assumptions strained from yet another drivel-filled article...

For Christ's sake, regardless of the 'mistakes' made by Nintendo, they're managing to pull in eyeballs and controversy over 12-months before the WiiU's release. Added to that, they've got an install base of around 80 million Wii users, so of course they're going to want to leverage the success of their existing branding to a high degree.

But hang on, No!...If some 2-bit middle-aged gamer with invisible researching and writing abilities - and zero *real-world* sales & marketing skills of any note - "suspects that their decision is a very bad one" then I concede: Nintendo have truly fubar'd.

Why in the crying-hell is this author still on the Eurogamer payroll? Even more shameful is that I wasted time reading it in the hope it's not the same super-bland tripe as every other article that's gone before it.

'Look everybody!! It's a high-res Dreamcast game!'

With this being a Digital Foundry article, I can't believe there's no reference to the quality (or lack thereof) of the visuals (in relation to shaders, lighting etc). While it's great to hear about the leap in power between iPads or other devices, this seems to be a shining example of pure graphical daftness.

@Xephon1970:

"I do wonder why journos allow themselves to comment and reply in such a public manner on Twiitter, knowing full well that the whole world can see. Maybe it is ego."

Hmm...well let's see what his website bio says...

"Through my work for The Times, GamesIndustry.biz and Eurogamer, Iíve become fairly recognisable as a games commentator"

Ego it is then.

And yes Rob: through your sterling journalism you have indeed been recognised fairly...
...as a complete fuckwit.

At least one thing has been proven beyond doubt, and with a high degree of statistical significance, from this article:

Rob Fahey has passed the Twatus Absolutus exam with distinction.

And if there's any journalistic justice, he'll be forced into a sex change, bent over a man's knee and summarily slapped (possibly while being filmed for 'We Dare 2's marketing campaign).

"Probably one of the biggest problems in this thread is all the opinions from people who actually did not hear the speach. Why don't most of you turn off your brain and watch Fox News and let them tell you how the world is. Rob came away with an opinion from Iwata's speach but to believe his opinion is the only one you can take is being silly. I know I did not take the same thing away from the speach and if you want to get a good perpective from someone who understands the industry, I suggest everyone actually hear the speak first before forming an opinion off of Rob's article."

[Applause]

Erm, Rob?...

Just help me out a sec so that I can make a better judgement on who's opinion/interpretation is possibly more valid:

I know Satoru Iwata is the CEO and somewhat successful strategic mind behind at least some of the profitable success of a multi-billion dollar, profitable games company.

But beyond clicking a controller, shakin' a Wiimote and writing [seemingly misinformed] articles to earn a crust as a games journalist, what's your background of hands-on achievements and expertise in relation to this industry again?

Thought so.


Science-fiction or science-fact? As much as I love dipping into Eurogamer, quite often these articles turn out to be nothing more than science-fu**ed.
