Re: E3 2014 wants/predictions

I've got q feeling the new Gears of War by MS might surprise a lot of people. It could very easily become MS The Last of Us. The series needs a complete revamp especially in terms of characters and story. Mechanically they both very similar games too. It would be a good move by Microsoft. Then again...

Re: E3 2014 wants/predictions

It already came out in 2011: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Final_Fantasy_Type-0 Apparently there is an English language translation patch if you fancy importing it. Yeah knew it was out in Japan. From what I hear its very...

Re: E3 2014 wants/predictions

The majority of my hopes will be from Sega. And considering they would probably wait until TGS and don't appear to be making anything other than RTS and management Sims. My game list is as followed; Shenmue 1+2 HD - I'm not even bothered about Shenmue 3 anymore. I've been putting off replaying these...

Re: The Dreamcast is Overrated

It's just one of those consoles you had to play at the time to understand why so many people go crazy over it. It's got a lot of great games and hidden gems if you are willing to look. But the main reason it is so highly regarded by many is how ahead of its time it was. Offering online play when tha...

Re: Level-5 Games

Loved Rogue Galaxy. Think I got to the same point as you and stopped playing. Really need to make the time to complete that game. Really enjoyed Dragon Quest VIII, got me into the series. I really wish Sqenix would let Level 5 make a main Final Fantasy game. Also Dark Chronicle seems to get better a...

Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

Finally managed to find a copy of Suikoden Tierkreis from Game for £13 preowned. Been trying to find it for a decent price for years. Hopefully it holds up well to the rest of the series!

Re: rare xbox 360 games

I may have to pick up Binary Domain again then. Only recently got rid of it too. Also surprised FFXI would be rare later on. I've had it since launch but always considered it garbage as I can't really trade it and cannot imagine anyone being able to use it in the future. Guess I was wrong! My guesse...

Re: Worst fall from Grace

Konami hands down. They were becoming absolute giants in the PSone era, with the likes of MGS, Silent Hill, Suikoden, Vandal Hearts etc. Obviously they have been a major publisher for a long time but they seemed as though they could do no wrong. They just got better during the PS2 days. Arguably pea...

Re: RARE'S legacy since leaving NINTENDO

Yep, I think its pretty obvious that Microsoft killed Rare. Its a real shame as I think the original Xbox would have suited Rare perfectly if they were left to do what they wanted. Back then Microsoft appeared to be willing to take real risks and invest heavily to establish franchises. If only Rare ...

Re: SEGA teases Mickey's Castle of Illusion HD Remake

I really loved Castle of Illusion but I still cannot help but feel this is yet another kick in the balls for people waiting for ANYTHING about Shenmue HD.

I'm certain Sega will literally remake every title in their back catalogue in HD before Shenmue.

Animal Crossing Wii Fully boxed w/Wii Speak and Risen (360) for 2 for £10

Re: 2003 - What were you playing?

Loads of games, I had all platforms at that point. PS2 wise it was mainly the new JRPGs. I played a lot of Dark Chronicle 2 at the start of the year (had never heard of Dark Cloud at that point). Also Steambot Chronicles I belive was that year too. Completely forgotten oddity. Also went through Sile...

Re: is the psp percieved to be a failure

I think there are two main reasons why its perceived a failure in the west (and thats the only place it would). First of all it was rivalled and set to compete against the DS from the off. Common consensus at the time (consumers and the gaming media) felt the PSP would destroy the DS easily. In fact...

Re: favorite megadrive games

Well you cannot go wrong with Shining Force 1 and 2, though expect to pay a little extra for them though. Same can be applied to Phantasy Star IV, its pretty pricey but it is the best RPG on the system and arguably of all time. For cheaper RPG fixes though I hear Buck Rogers is great. Soleil is litt...
