Re: What is your video game bias and how did you get it?

:wink: Hmmmn, good topic, hard to answer to a degree though, for example...8 Bit days i was originally an Atari 800XL owner, so i'd have been 'biased' towards that.Games dried up so moved over to C64, bias moved to that i guess. 16 Bit wise:ST owner, but years later picked up an A1200, MD,MCD owner,...

Re: Which book(s) are you currently reading?

Every time I hear good things about Peter Hamilton, I'm put off by the size of his books! Has he done any short stories I could look at to get a feel for him? My fave sci-fi author is Iain M Banks if that helps. EDIT: Cheers, tachi. Was aiming that question at everyone in the thread, but would be c...

Re: GAME files for Administration

X-games totally different kettle of fish, but at least the PSone offered up something of it's own, in form of Colony Wars.Potential with the online aspect alone for a Colony Wars reboot on PS3 makes for interesting prospect (even if not commercially so). Did download Beta for Starhawk, but size of p...

Re: GAME files for Administration

I would love to see a space game on the consoles. It was understandable years ago that there werent any, because consoles simply lacked the power. Not the case now. If someone 'got it right' they could indeed be the next big thing imo. Theres so much potential. :wink: If PSone can get:3 Colony War'...

Re: GAME files for Administration

Space shooters aren't popular right now. Therefore space shooters aren't being released right now. Or is it because they aren't being released right now, that they're not popular right now. I'm confused. :? You can't play what isn't there. Minecraft creator Markus 'Notch' Persson's next major proje...

Re: GAME files for Administration

:? MS canned Freelancer 2 (or Project Lonestar as it was then known) on 360 back in 2007. Sony were talking about bringing Colony Wars to PS2...(in feature in OPM)...... So the issue of Space combat games being popular right now, seems mute, as console wise, Reach bits and aging PC game Darkstar One...

@Toxie, i still wager it'll be MS 1st with the download only and or/streaming.... Why? 1)Sony been burnt by PSP Go exp.won't be in hurry to repeat that, espically since Sony consoles no-longer the all destroying sales force PS1+PS2 were. 2)MS invested too much in it's online side to let someone else...

JennyTablina:I'd love to think developers really do give consumers what they want, but...as stated on here by myself and others, distinct lack of space shooters on current platforms, MS canned a bloody promising sequel to Freelancer (and this way way before Kinect emerged) and as for Sony...digging ...
