Fighting Fantasy games on the way for DS, PSP

I'd love it if they made the Sorcery! series.
Wonder if you get to write your stats in on the DS version - so you'd roll a 2 on the dice and 'round up' to 5.

Wii Sports boxed in Europe

That's a real shame. I had hoped to impress my family by appearing only in my Wii Sports slipcase codpiece this Christmas. Looks like it's back to the DVD cock collar and elf shoes that were such a hit last year.

X360 TV/film service launches

corimi

This stuff's great, but it's all kinda stinky how xbox owners get one bunch of content, ps3 owners will get another bunch. The potential's there, but someone wants to make a unified download service that uses a single format and stop being so fucking greedy...did no-one learn from the BETAMAX WARS! MAX-TIVATE.

PS3 online service goes live

corimi

12 years ago

That said, if (when) we do get to the point where we can realistically download 'full' games for about half the price of store bought ones then they'll be quids in...
You can see them charging like 30 for a game which they would have only seen 20 for in the past due to the shop getting their cut.

I take it back - it'll be profit-a-mania eventually.

disc, true, but I would have thought that they would have wanted to rely on more than live arcade style games? Yeah, these are money for the same infinitely replicable piece of data but I was thinking that once they'd paid for everything there wouldn't be a lot of profit left.

I guess it's a wait and see, just hope it doesn't result in more and more pay-for unlockables etc. Surely live subscriptions aren't pure profit for Microsoft, they must have to pay for some sort of overheads to keep the level of service up.

Not that I'm complaining about a free service, in this day and age, etc!

I really don't get how this is a sensible business venture if it's free?

At least in the iTunes model, it's a drive to push hardware with the content generating little or no profit, but when the hardware loses money too?! Granted games will turn a profit, but surely with massive development costs etc there can't be a margin that can support such a potentially massive new venture.

I suspect someone at Sony is 'doing a Producers'...

Totally. That's not the half of it. I heard it couldn't even run a Powerpoint presentation.

Games don't reflect the feelings of consumers - Lanning

corimi

12 years ago

As someone said, they're games - entertainment. It's up to the individual what stimulates them, be it a sports game, driving game or an RPG, whatever.

I just think we're lucky to be in a time when we've got the choice, and not just between Pacman and Ms Pacman. It's the same in art, films and music, the majority will deliver stuff that sticks to a formula, because it's safe and sells well. Others are more concerned with artistic merit and strive for innovation and new perspectives. Often the best ideas in terms of gameplay and storytelling will filter through once they have been proven - it's how we get consistency in games and know how to play them 'instinctively'. On other occasions, innovative interfaces just won't communicate with the majority and disappear. This gives gaming a common language, something to develop and react against, a fascinating process really. I'm not sure that this should be perceived as a two sided battle between stagnation and innovation (or indeed between innovation and technology, where technology=stagnation), but both sides need each other.

So buy what you like, as long as we're human, we'll demand change and development.

Apologies for the spiel, ignore button is below left.

BVG opens Wii, DS studio

Yeah, I was referring more to the use of the kiddy character in an ace game.
Wonder if it'll appear on the Virtual Console at any point...

EDITED cos my last comment made no sense in the context of the discussion

Personally, I don't have a problem with playing cartoon characters, kiddy or girly games even though I'm quite manly. My comment was purely aimed at disparaging my shite joke, referring to the molestation of cartoon characters.

If they make another one of these I won't be complaining.

That is, if you were referring to my comment in the first place. My brain is melting today...

EDIT...so as not to link to some dodgy looking roms site...

Cool, cheers malteaserhead!
Looks like the artists are well into denim, cloth of fighting.
Also, Snake's 'crawl' move looks amazing. I did that in a fight last Friday and my enemies were really scared till they stamped on my head.

Japanese Virtual Console list

corimi

Yeah, a whole old-zelda compilation with newer nicer graphics would be ace - all brought up to the Link to the Past / Four Swords standard.
Though I don't suppose we'll see that now what with the virtual console and all :(

Link's Awakening was redone for Gameboy Color wasn't it? With 2 new / enhanced dungeons? I don't think you can play Color carts on DS, just GBA.

With all the hand-germs on money, it's probably even more unhygenic for swimming than the local pool, what with all the child wee and veruccas. Scrooge McDuck must be a total mingrat.

Don't see why someone can't revoke this prick's law licence / permit / whatever for being a total fucking pest to the American judicial system. Tiny-balled arsehole.

Glad I don't live in the US cos he could probably 'get' me for that comment. In the meantime, Jack Thompson, suck my plums.

Ha ha, 'attachment rate'
If he's referring to the two UMDs that he's stuck to the side of his head as blinkers, then that's pretty good I suppose.

The artwork looks ace! Very reminiscent of Belleville Rendez-Vous.
I hope it's actually just a front for a brain training game though, that's quite the lonely bandwagon.

Does that include spending the first 12 levels in the top left corner, safe from harm? Worked on the Master System at any rate...

"It illustrates our desire to release games that are appropriate for gamers in all markets."

Is that a bit like how Shania Twain releases different versions of her amazing albums for different regions?

I hope, as a Britisher, that they ONLY release football and driving games here. Or Sim Ale.

This sounds ace, the DS is severly lacking in the decent RPG dept.
Wonder if they could do some form of MMORPG on it, with plenty of options for solo gameplay when you're not in the Kingdom of Wireless Internets

>> Sounds like just another spin off, rather than another proper RE game :(

Aye, getting a bit sick of the old 'best of' / 'remix' for nintendo consoles. Almost like developers can't really be dicked...

Can see this happening a lot with the wii though, emperor's new clothes style...
