Re: EU in or out? June 23rd (Now with POLL)

Markets ALWAYS respond badly to uncertainty. This is nothing new. The pound strengthened straight away when Scotland decided to stay within the Union. One can only speculate how the currency would be had Scotland decided to leave the UK, rather than go with the status quo as it did in the end. It i...

Re: EU in or out? June 23rd (Now with POLL)

Could those people, who think that Britain leaving the EU will actually be good for the economy, please explain why Sterling is currently getting hammered on the forex markets at the mere possibility of it? It's looking like it's going to be a nervous few months for expats who have investments back...

Apple (Tim Cook) vs the FBI, who's right and who's wrong?

So, as the subject heading suggests, you have probably heard or read that the FBI has requested Apple come up with a viable method of accessing the data on a terrorists iPhone without erasing it forever with invalid pin code guesses. Depending on your views, you either absolutely believe that Apple ...

Re: Worst games in otherwise great franchises

Bioshock 2 - not a bad game, just felt like it existed to make money While I agree that Bioshock 2 is the runt of the litter it seems churlish to hold a grudge because it "existed to make money". All commercial releases exist to make money. That's why they get a release. To make money. I hope this ...

Re: Machines that moved the goalposts.

SNES / Megadrive being attractive to almost every player, really? I thought the Wii did a much better job than those two consoles as it did sell more units in relation to the SNES / Megadrive combined. The mobile phone trumps them all in that regard. The Wii did well in attracting the casuals but i...

Re: Machines that moved the goalposts.

Atari 2600 for starting the gaming industry (and then Atari almost blowing it all up). Nintendo Game & Watch for proving that you don't need top tech for a attractive and successful system(s) and starting an empire of handhelds for Nintendo. IBM PC for outliving all other formats combined with it's...

Re: What game have you COMPLETED this week

Well, I've finally gone through Bioshock Infinite and its DLC and can say, wow, what an ending. How they brought the two universes (Rapture and Columbia) together in the Burial at Sea episode 2 was brilliantly done. As a story, it's one of the best out there at the moment and probably surpasses The ...

Re: Street Fighter II is 25 years old today

its just as ludicrous to think that nobody knew about it. every magazine at the time was harping on about it. even the home co puters were desperate for a good port. that's not a slight by the way, it's just amazing how huge games can pass peoe by. it's not a cult classic though, far too popukar fo...

Bio shock Infinte. After the brilliant Crackdown and Alan Wake, I'm struggling to get into this title. I loved Rapture in the original Bioshock and is one of my favourite 360 games but Infinite is leaving me Luke warm at the mo. The game is clearly well made and the environments are lovely but I pr...

Re: Discuss Time! Issue 152

Other than that, what I refer to as "Zelda Syndrome" stops me playing a game. If a title is a large game (Zelda in this example) and I take a break from it for a week or so, I more often than not don't have a clue where I am or what I'm doing so I just give up on it :oops: I used to experience that...
