The retro gaming industry could be killing video game preservation

@peterfll But emulators contain zero intellectual property, that is why they are perfectly legal, the code is built from the ground up by the developers, its not reverse engineering, its all original code.

this is why I cancelled my PS plus and my ea access on xbox, and put the money towards the xbox game pass. Costs me slightly less a month and far more games I am interested in on that service. PS plus has had shit games for months and they had the nerve to put the price up. What was once a great service is now a joke.

@JimmyDanger Season 11 is going to be 10 episodes, 1 and 10 mythology all the rest monster of the week. This game will probably be shit, but i'll play anything x-files. Resist or serve was surprisingly decent, and I even liked the PC FMV game they put out way back. I'll try anything once.

Prey adds a free trial on all platforms

polymorph

This sort of late to the party demo is really starting to piss me off.I assume its being put out as sales were not as good as anticipated, well then don't withold review copy's until launch day and say it's for the best for potential customers, that's just bullshit. If there was a proper demo around launch day that was good i may of been inclined to purchase the game. Know i know there was a demo for this but the ps4 version was shit. Bethesda also recently put out a "demo" for dishonoured 2, maybe if this was available before or around the launch date they may of had better out of the gate sales.
Bit of a rant i know, sorry, but it pisses me off when the demo comes after the sales are not good enough. Release a good demo first and the sales will come. This just reakes of money grabbing because of low sales.

Rejoice! Danger Zone is Burnout's Crash Mode

polymorph

11 months ago

Cant wait for this!! Back in the day on Burnout 3 crash mode on XBOX i was actually number 1 in the world on quite a lot of the junctions and had a friendly rivalry with a american who was equally or arguably slightly better than me, and i actually became xbox friends with due to the rilvalry. Had so much fun beating his score by a couple of thousand points, only for him to do the same mere minutes later. For me the game i have the most online hours in ever!! Bring it on i think im ready again.
Just to say i was NEIL9000 and he was something like BIGJIM OR something sinilar. So many hours........ i think by the time they shut the servers down i had about 300 hours in it!!

Microsoft is adding self-service refunds for digital Xbox/Win10 games

polymorph

1 year ago

About time. Platform holders often charge more for the digital release than it costs to get the physical version, which is ridiculous. If people pay that sort of money and think its shit, they should be able to return it. Bring back demos so people can check a game works and is something they like before paying the money.

Xbox Games with Gold March lineup includes Evolve

polymorph

1 year ago

@Hairy-Gorilla Yeah I understand that, just wondering if its a concerted effort this month to try and get players in. Of course we get these games "free" but sony and Microsoft have to pay the developer/publisher a certain amount per game, which is negotiated on a game by game basis. Just wondering if they are trying to recoup money they thought they would get (and budgeted for) on release, or are just hoping the uptake in players on there servers and general chatter will also help out the pc version.

@Hairy-Gorilla Ok, fair enough. Still think its a little weird, lets see if it goes free on ps4 this month as well, if it does we can assume its there way of making it free to play on consoles as well?

So until this goes live, I could play it on my pc for free, but still had to "buy" it on ps4 or xbox? that's a bit shitty isn't it? I mean it will look better on my pc than the consoles and its free, yet Microsoft are saying hey look you can have this for free this month, you no that game that is already free on pc, but you HAVE to buy on xbox.
Just think that's a weird one for them to get.

polymorph

@mega-gazz, The 5 days thing is these are limited, if you have the game on steam you have 5 days to import them, they stay forever in your GOG library after though. Also I'm sure you are aware but thought I would mention that you can launch any GOG game from steam.

EDIT:
Actually any .exe on your pc.

I recieved a premium system for christmas last year, lucky me as a 35 year old not expecting that sort of gift from my mother!! i have since gone on to buy mario..2 days later, and then sonic racing transformed which is actually rather good, but they were all launch games,
Where are the games? never played pikmin before, so should i care?? There was actually a demo released this month, well done nintendo..it was for the wonderfull 101 which seems OKish if not disimular to pikmin, so what Zelda next, (will buy) never finished it on cube. Please wake up Nintendo you need more origanal IP and also some of your big hitters. Where is metroid? where is kid icarus, what i saw of that 3ds game would work well on wii u..
OH AND WHERE THE F**K IS WAVE RACE??
Sorry for the rant, just a old school fan losing my trust in nintendo..

edit.. or F-ZERO, OR STARFOX!!
