It's nonsense 'goodies'. Fair play to them and a trump on any gamer who makes a huge issue out of this.

Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies heads to Steam

I remember playing this on CS 1.6 years ago, with one player as the Zombie and the rest as a normal team trying to avoid infection and a subsequent swelling of the Zombie horde. Was great fun...but it was a a homecooked mod. Not sure what the audience is here.

Microsoft's US store giving away 1600 MS points for pre-orders on GTA5, BioShock Infinite, Revengeance and more

I presume you're pre-paying for the game when ordering. 'Woohoo!'

In fact, I see that's exactly the case. Still not sure why they don't bundle in 20-50 MS Points in with every Microsoft published game.

@GranpireVikingMan Not particularly, no.

Promoting them in ways like getting your female staff to pose licking PSPs or whooping like sex-crazed apes when you get sent demo units is a different kettle of fish to 'promoting' them through reviews and discussion.

edit: though we seem in broad agreement. They need to seperate themselves from 'being a fan' when their voice is heard by tens of thousands.

@GranpireVikingMan Sony has an enormous marketing budget to promote their products. 'Journalists' should not be a direct part of this.

Cannot wait. Only thing that puts me off carrying over my Save Game is that I played and replayed with the same Shepard, going for all Renegade points after my holier-than-thou first.

Guess it's an excuse to play through a third time and set him right, I suppose...

E3: Microsoft promotes Peter Molyneux

He loves what he does, and loves to get that across to people. He's a tremendous ambassador for the industry, even if the sheen of his ideas has become rather tarnished by reality. Look forward to seeing what he contributes and what directions he guides MSG down.

Sounds a bit JCVD-esque. Hope they pull it off, you've got to root for D3 just for having the nuts to stick something like EDF out in Europe, at budget price. Having said that, Gnorts point is entirely valid, and we've seen it happen before.

Revolving Doors

There's certainly a case for adopting a Hollywood style 'by project' contract for development staff; unfortunately the amounts of money demanded for such services are nowhere near Hollywood levels, leading to an awful lot of people making no money at all, and ultimately doing something with a regular wage.

To be honest, a big slice of the game's charm comes from the very vaguest idea you have of what's going on. That said it's simple to get the general gist and the front-end is an importer's friend, and while all in 'funny foreign', is still easy enough to navigate.

Apparently a UK version is in the works, as yet there's been no official announcement.

Play-Asia/Lik-Sang are good bets for it, I imported via Lik-Sang for about 23 quid.

Advance Wars: Dual Strike

mr_chimp

12 years ago

Fair do's, I agree that playing slower certainly makes control easier, I just like to move games along as fast as possible. I did think about mentioning the graphical change, but next to other additions I couldn't class it as a 'innovation' to add a minor tilt to the viewing plane, as it doesn't add to or remove anything from the experience.

Glad you liked the review, and glad you're enjoying the game! Thanks for reading.

Just like to add that this was written at the time the game was released, hence the references to 'forthcoming patches'.
