Re: Worst deal you've every seen

One has a lower serial number than the other. Maybe it's that?

Re: Street fighter X Tekken DLC priced at......

Correct me if im wrong but dont updated versions of SF2 and Marvel Vs Capcom have online play for the first time? This adds a whole new dimension of competitive play. And when you consider all the Arc System Works fighters, Namco, KOF theres quite a lot out there. Plenty on the way too. The nature ...

Re: Street fighter X Tekken DLC priced at......

I'm surprised too. Bear in mind it hasn't actually been confirmed yet.

Perhaps DS has a massive following in Japan? Apparently Jojo's Bizarre Adventure is huge over there which explains the new port (and ridiculous price).

Re: Street fighter X Tekken DLC priced at......

Given the furore over the SFxT DLC, not to mention the disappointing sales of the game, I doubt Capcom will be employing the same tactics with one of their fighting games again.

Re: Street fighter X Tekken DLC priced at......

And yet there are still fewer games released in the fighting genre than there are in other popular genres. It just so happens that Capcom is one of the few publishers keeping the genre alive. Good for them. I hope they release more. Not to mention that Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, Marvel Vs Capcom Orig...

Get Rhythm Paradise. The GBA and DS games are bona fide classics.

Re: Fez - And the "hidden" cost of Patching?

There is no 'hidden' anything. When the dev agreed to release on XBLA he would have been well aware of the cost of patching. The first release was clearly not up to scratch and very obviously leaking memory all over the shop. Yes it's unfortunate that the patch deletes saves and yes, there is no suc...

Just want to point out that at the official price for points, it works out at £2.04.

Re: Decay of data on floppies and tapes

Older 5.25" disks seem to be much more resilient than newer 3.5" disks in my experience. The only 5.25" disks I've had fail are C64 games with heavy protection and some disks I created back in the day with some kind of warp speed loader.

Re: GAME ROOM X360 - THE RG RESURGENCE! Challenges! May 2012

I'm up for more challenges too. Apologies if I've missed any. Been a busy old few weeks.

Every time I start Game Room it makes me sad that there are no longer any updates to look forward to. Such a shame.

How in god's name are you people scoring so much on H.E.R.O? 50,000-odd and my lives just evaporate. It gets so tough at that point.
