The Fallout fan made to destroy his records for a refund

I have heard of similar instances in the art market with limited edition screen prints, but in those cases the artist sends a like for like replacement after receving proof the damaged original has been destroyed. Just to get a refund (and a terse email) is kind of insulting.

PlayStation Store Easter Sale has Ni no Kuni for 5.49

lexxx

4 years ago

Earth Defence Force on Vita is 5.49/6.99 - I'm sure this was something like 30+ at one point, crazy for a remake. Not my sort of thing, but may take a punt as it seems people who love it, really love it.

Be warned people: Ni No Kuni is a 22gb download. But it's a steal at that price.

MSI GT70 2PE Dominator Pro with GTX 880M review

lexxx

4 years ago

I bought a 15.6" version with some lower specs, more like 1,100 - would have been my first gaming laptop, and had planned to spend 800/900 anyway, so it seemed a good idea to pay a bit more and get then best. Then the online store then said they didn't have them and refunded.

In the meantime I've read Lenovo are bringing out the y50, price and release tbc but probably cheaper, so will wait and see.

Nintendo announces Zelda: Wind Waker HD re-make for Wii U, out this year

A broken record perhaps, but I thought the motion controls added nothing, to Skyward Sword and at times were truly irritating. Remakes and any future games would be improved a range of control options, including traditional, but I'm not hopeful.

Okami HD review

lexxx

6 years ago

Much as I loved this game, I remember there was a couple of moments of crude humour from the generally irritating Issun. The jokes such as they were were mild and inoffensive, but had the result of 'breaking the spell' - jarring and unnecessary in an otherwise effective, charming bit of escapism.

Settling the Stores: The PlayStation Store Makeover

lexxx

6 years ago

One element of the PS+ bit of the store I hope they address is making sure all free games appear on the first menu at the top - surely they are what people are most likely to want? Generally the instant game collection is at the top, but there have been a few examples where I've read online a particular game has a 100% discount but they have to be found either with the search function or by looking through subfolders.

Saturday Soapbox: Can Nintendo court the casuals again?

lexxx

6 years ago

Zelda alone has been enough to sell me on a console and so the lack of games across the Wii's lifespan didnt bother me cos i knew there would be a Zelda along eventually. but I found Skyward Sword, though it was OK, busted because of motion controls.

So I'm now inclined to look at Nintendo much more critically. Not saying never but certainly I won't be a WiiU early adopter.

"Actually if you walked up to a girl in the street and behaved that way toward her you would find yourself getting arrested."

Yes, that occurred to me, its actually illegal in the UK, don't know about the US.

Perhaps not, since this lady was required to put up with it in order not to breach her contract... however, surely Capcom could just write a clause into such an unbreakable contract that if you behave like an a-hole then you're out.
