THQ shuts UFC developer - report

the_jamaster

6 years ago

THQ's online connectivity has been shoddy for all too long and never really addressed. The debacle with the latest WWE title makes this all too clear despite the claim that it would be much "improved." My point being that their treatment of customers in recent times has been poor.

THQ loses one of their key franchises and EA now has the ball to make a ton of cash. Let's hope it doesn't turn into a yearly generic afterthought although justifiably I have my doubts.

Splinter Cell: Blacklist behind the scenes trailer

the_jamaster

6 years ago

Not only have Ubisoft edged away from the true stealthy nature of previous titles, which was the case in Conviction as well but now they get rid of Ironside too?

Unacceptable. This, for me was the most disappointing showing of E3 and I really don't care if the new actor "clenches his face" who honestly cares? I want stealth again and not unbridled boring, cliched Hollywood style acting. Not impressed.

Microsoft cancels Inside Xbox in Europe

the_jamaster

6 years ago

That's a real shame. I thought Inside Xbox was great, informative, witty and downright entertaining. I'll be sad to see Inside Xbox go, a real mistake on Microsoft's part IMO.

Furthermore, all the best to Andy, Dan and the Inside Xbox team that has provided me and I'm sure many others with their great contributions down the years. Thanks guys, you will be missed.

There was clear flaws with DNF, no question. I don't think it was that bad though. I enjoyed it, actually but then again maybe I'm strange.

Madden NFL 10

the_jamaster

I don't actually think Collinsworth is that bad a commentator to be honest. This is much better than the radio announcer of years past. But maybe EA need to go in the direction of NFL 2K5 and have two complete fictional people doing the commentary. Good review.

Bethesda doing more Fallout 3 DLC

the_jamaster

9 years ago

I'm still playing the DLC just now so knowing more is on the way is great. As a 360 owner I also commend Bethesda on releasing DLC on the PS3. I don't like exclusivity agreements and it's not fair that some gamers should miss out on the content because the PS3 is their console of choice.

Looking forward to the new content. Good job Bethesda! Also as others have said increasing the cap even further would be nice.

Madden NFL 10 due out in August

the_jamaster

9 years ago

EA's going to have to step it up this year but when it comes to Madden since they signed the exclusivity deal with the NFL they tend to release half-baked products. I'm sick and tired of all the glitches I can't even play franchise mode in Madden 09 because it freezes or ends up re-signing players I don't want.

Unless EA Sports fixes this and improves upon the franchise mode I won't be buying it. I coudn't care less about the "visual enhancements" how about you fix the actual game, EA?

Vote Obama ads appear in EA games

the_jamaster

10 years ago

I don't like this but it's clear what Obama's campaign is trying to do, target younger voters and it may succeed. John McCain dosen't know how to use the internet let alone have time to play games.

That's the differnce between British and American politics. In America you can advertise all you want until the point you drive people insane. Thankfully that isn't happening over here yet.

FaceBreaker, Madden demos on Xbox Live

the_jamaster

10 years ago

I enjoy playing defense. I still find it satisfying laying the big hit on the opponent or grabbing the interception returning it for a touchdown. As for the demo I think this is going to be the most accessible Madden ever and will be great for first time players.

TNA iMPACT's Kurt Angle

the_jamaster

10 years ago

It's good to see an interview with Kurt Angle on a gaming website as he is one of the best there has ever been in the business. As for the game the roster will be smaller and I don't have high hopes for it really with Midway making it. Still if you watch wrestling TNA is better like Angle says.

Good review. I didn't like the save system either and agree with you that it is a love it or hate it type of game. In the end I hated it because of some ropey gameplay mechanics plus the whole 72 hour thing which felt like you were being made to rush through the game.

Blitz: The League dated

the_jamaster

11 years ago

I was sort of dissapointed when it wasn't released on current-gen consoles so I'm pleased it's coming to the Xbox 360 in the U.K. It's the only alternative to Madden which has become increasingly lazy since they secured the NFL license. I played the demo and I liked it if you want an arcade take on football this looks like your best bet.

Try this:

Now you'll play in the game as Luigi instead of Mario!

Animal Crossing: Wild World

the_jamaster

I think you've been a little harsh on the game. It's kind of in The Sims sort of territory just less serious. Any type of game like this is an acquired taste and you either love it or hate it. I thought the game was okay but I would agree with you that it was over-rated. A game that I bought that I can give you an example of feeling the same way was The Shadow Of Colossus I just coudn't get into it no matter how hard I tried.

I think Wii games should be within the same price range as current Gamecube games as pricing it too high could put a lot of people off.

New DS web browser video

the_jamaster

12 years ago

I think it's good to see Nintendo releasing a web browser. I think the main reason they're doing it is to rival the PSP's online service. I like the look of this a lot more though as the control of web pages via the stylus is as close as you're going to get to a keyboard without having one and therefore looks easier to navigate. If you haven't got a DS now's the time to get one.

Good review. In contrast to the other forum members I agree with you about the graphics. It didn't really bother me too much as the story and gameplay make it worth buying alone. There should also be a sequel on the way which is good news as I woudn't expect it as I imagine Fahrenheit didn't sell too well.

The story is a bit of a copout I'll admit that. However there hasn't been a game like it since. If anything I think it got the right score, originality deserves to be praised in an era where EA will happily release update after update. IMO it was nice to see something new aswell as it being good.

Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Legend

the_jamaster

I disagree this for me was no way near the heights of Tomb Raider's hey days on PSone. From the cringeworthy characters like Zip and the professor to Amanda acting like some high school kid it just didn't do it for me. The puzzles were still intact but it dosen't even come close to Tomb Raiders of the past in my opinion. Good review though.

Revolution to see 'extensive' third party support

the_jamaster

12 years ago

I think Nintendo really have learnt their lesson this time. They've made mistakes but you look at the positive reception of the DS and with the Revolution having noticeable benefits (cheaper developement costs=more games) and (no expensive HD-TV required) it's going to be the console I'll be getting.

Shadow of the Colossus
