The Last of Us review

Can't help but think this will be a better game than Bioshock Infinite. Can the scoring scale be amended to go to 11 for Naughty Dog games?

Buena Vista pledges UMD movies

monkeyman

13 years ago

Strikes me that UMD movies will go the way of albums on Minidisc...ie. nowhere. No-one is going to pay money to own a movie twice, once on DVD and then again on UMD, particularly as you are unlikely to watch the movie more than once. The only scenario where I can see UMD movies working is through rental.

Try driving backwards down the course! The camera doesn't switch so you're driving blind but I got the bugger!

Gosen slams Microsoft over console transition

monkeyman

14 years ago

I kind of agree with Gosen and Realist regarding the GTA comment. The GTA games themselves have been excellent but if there is a me-too trend, like with stealth games, where every developer makes a clone, then its going to get boring very quickly. We need more games like Pikmin, Harvest Moon and Animal Crossing, as well as quality "mature" games like the GTA series and not Manhunt.

Um, not so excited about this announcement. Playing through some of the later levels of Jak2 was real chore.

Metroid Prime went to Retro Studios, and who had heard of them before that?

Ubisoft and Gearbox announce Brothers In Arms World War II franchise

monkeyman

It sure looks nice but is it just me or have Gearbox not actually made a decent game yet? Don't think I'll get too excited about this one yet until someone's actually had a hands-on preview.

World Rally Championship 3

monkeyman

I was too put off CMR4 by CMR3 so I waited for WRC3 and eventually picked it up in the Game sale for 20. It's not so bad but what is it with the junctions? Every bloody stage seems to have those 90 degree corners. And I'd agree with the pace notes - still useless.

Still, it's quite fun and always give an excellent feeling of elevation. If 5 is average then I would say 6 is a fair score to give it...good but not brilliant.

Datel to launch portable GB Player alternative

Might be worth a look since I'd only consider getting a GB Player with the 5500-odd stars I've got from the Stars Catalogue but thats not ever to happen, is it?

Get Hidden & Dangerous for free!

Gits. I paid at least a tenner for this when it first came out. Mind you, it was worth it. Pity they didn't make it any easier :-(

Hidden & Dangerous II

monkeyman

I got the Deluxe version of H&D and it was quite an improvement actually - the graphics were better and most of the bugs were gone (I managed not to fall through the floor). The game itself was unchanged (still rock solid) but damn, it was great fun replaying some of those classic levels.

Colin McRae Rally 04

I'm going with Peej on this one. The PS2 demo didn't seem vastly different (or superior) to CMR3 and certainly didn't convince to rush out and buy CMR4. But this review seems pretty positive and as Krudster pointed out, its an update of CMR2 and thats a good thing...right?

Well, if its an update of CMR2 then that's good news since that was definitely the best of the series so far.

As a PS2 owner, the question is: do I get CMR4 now, or wait until November for WRC3? After the dissappointment of CMR3, I think the verdict is still out on this one....

Pikmin 2 slips to next year

monkeyman

15 years ago

Pikmin rocked! Pity it was so short lived because it was one of the best early games for the GC, much better IMHO than Super Smash Bros or Luigi's Mansion. A lot of people felt the time limit was crap but I liked the pressure it put on you - if you missed a piece on one day, you had to make sure you got two the next. I let my brother borrow it though, and never saw it again :-(

As for the delay, there are enough games between now and Christmas to keep most people occupied. Roll on Q2 2004!

WRC2 Extreme wiped the floor with CMR3. Looking forward to this one. And the screenies look pretty good to me, certainly an improvement WRC2.

Not tried the demo but it looks ok and I'm always up for something a bit different...if it turns out to be a steaming pile of poo then there's always eBay.

Zee Zed Zipster, I sympathise. I made the mistake of keeping my hamster next to the linen basket in my bedroom. The little shit managed to eat holes in my favourite work shirt overnight! As for the game, I think I'll give it a miss...still playing Advance Wars!

Where the hell is Advance Wars for the Gamecube??!! If Wario Ware is to get the Gamecube treatment, surely Advance Wars should.
