Re: Just cause 3

Just Cause 2 was a fantastic tech demo. Some of the best graphics ever to grace the Xbox 360 and an amazing game engine with loads of ways to move around. Absolutely spoiled by the least inventive missions of all time. Ten minutes of gameplay copied and pasted over forty or so hours. Horrible. Ther...

Re: Your gaming/collecting goals for 2015

Thats pricey for a machine that can't even play mariokart No it isnt. Chances are if I'm going to build a new machine, I'll go way further than that. My current one was... $1200, I think? If I do get a new one here at some point this year, good chance it'll be more expensive than that. Still, lists...

Re: Your gaming/collecting goals for 2015

Okay, I've got a few. 1. Maybe buy new PC. Getting a high-end gaming rig together though is such a total pain... so not totally sure. 2. Get the few remaining 360 Japanese shmups that I dont have. 3. Buy more 2600 games. There's some that I'd really like to have, so I might buy a large blob of them ...

Re: Worst Sound from a Console or Computer?

I'll go with the Genesis as a whole. Well, Megadrive to most of you. I know it as the Genesis though. That thing.... ugh. It just never sounded right to me. I always had the impression that the thing could do with a few cough drops. There's also the sound that the 2600 would put out every now and th...

Re: Just cause 3

Bah, to heck with imagination. I just exploded things and crashed stuff. Which inevitably also exploded. And the grapnel + parachute mechanics were absolutely brilliant. Soooo much mobility and crazy tricks that could be done. Or you could just walk up to enemies and hit them with it, that was a goo...

Re: Anti piracy methods

I've got one.

Apparently, while you can look at this message by doing the thing in the video, it automatically appears right at the start if you're playing a pirated version of the game.

Re: Mario maker for wii u

I struggled with LBP and usually don't bother with level editors so this might not be for me. Still, it depends if they let you download other peoples levels and how the community shapes up. If they DONT allow you to upload your levels for others to play, it'd be bloody stupid. Having others play w...

Re: Just cause 3

I could never get in to the other two and got bored really quickly. I just ended up aimlessly wandering around the huge map site seeing. Hopefully this one will include the missing ingredient, although I don't actually know what that is! Well, it's an open-world game... but more of a "pure" one tha...

Re: Piracy. Is it good for the industry?

Piracy has often preserved games that would otherwise have been lost. Most people who pirate wouldn't have bought the pirated item in the first place, so "lost sales" is no where near as big a factor as publishers would like to make out. Just the two points I wanted to note. Feh, I see plenty that ...

Re: Who is excited about Street Fighter V?

Yeah, that's how it seems to me too. Sort of a rather minor (to me at least) graphical difference, but other than that... same old thing. I'm not super into Capcom's fighters (prefer Arc's), but SF4 is fine as it is. I kinda think they need alot more than what's been shown so far to really justify a...

Re: Gaming predictions for 2015

It's very difficult not to get angry and respond to people saying that piracy is good for the industry. It's the most ludicrous thing I've ever read and its source, those defending the source and those sticking up for them do not surprise me one, little bit. Yeah, I know how you feel with that one....

Re: Mario maker for wii u

Definitely getting this myself.

I'm into game design/creation (thus LittleBigPlanet), and this idea just seems like it can work so very well with the Mario games as a whole.

Really cant wait for it to come out.

How totally unsurprising that in addition to being a PC Master Race giraffe outdated gamer also turns out to be a pro-piracy sunflower. :roll: And yes MPM, I'll enjoy the packet of polo's.

IGabe Newell isn't very happy with the direction that Microsoft are taking their OS Is anyone? And thus is the big, glaring disadvantage with all PC gaming: Having to put up with Windows. An OS that appears to be made entirely out of distilled stupidity. For me the benefit of having hundreds of gam...
