Not really buying the paperphone - I can't imagine it will ever be as easy to scroll as simply dragging a touch screen down. Also although the display may be paper thin - the battery etc isn't.

lol at the fact they feel they need to Trade Mark "Quad-Wielding". Like anybody else in the world would feel the need to call it something that uninventive.

We needed to change the TV a month ago - and did pay the extra 150 for 3d. However it goes to show how much confidence we have in the tech as we only bought 3 sets of glasses for our family of 5.

Still the footy is nice in 3d and the games aren't bad.

I'm still seriously uncertain about pirating TV shows which are shown on channels you pay to have access to. If I miss an episode of something by accident I think absolutely nothing of downloading it.

I think the true reason for this is to help fans not having it spoiled by the internet - which is a nice thing. To blame any part of it on piracy is just typical British sensationalism.

At the same time it seems the BBC will only front 700k per episode of Dr Who. The normal price of an episode is around 1m - the 300k shortfall has to be made from merchandising, dvd sales, overseas sales etc etc.

Given the fact the BBC receives 3.4 billion pounds a year in license fees (every household in the UK with a tv has to pay a fee of 142.50 per year - enforced by law) why can they not pay for one of the most popular programs they produce!

OMG I'm so happy it's copied valve_ps3_legals.bik and valve_xbox_legals.bik onto my harddrive. There's nothing like waisting bandwidth and diskspace on bloatware.

ok so it seems the most popular game in The Potato Sack atm is a bad looking Katamari rip off - I thought Katamari looked bad but "The Wonderful End of the World" makes it look wonderful.

Edit: I actually love the Katamari games - but I don't want to play a western remake of a quintessentially Japanese game.

Dammit got to wait for the PS3 version too - I promised I'd play it coop with one of my girls (the first one is one of a very few games she's completed). Still at least when it turns out it will unlock my PC version too :S

Thanks Drezden - good to know namco are also doing SF in Tekken. I wasn't a huge fan of the SF4 art style and prefer 3d fighters.

That said I wouldn't dream of buying it on a PC anyway - games like this are definitely best on the sofa with wireless controllers and beer (yes I know you can do that with a PC).

Where exactly did Crytek say that DX11 was going to be supported in Crysis 2, or even released with the game?

Or indeed where did they say that Crysis 2 would be based on 5 year old tech???????????

News Comments > Mafia II Director's Cut Announced
18. Re: Mafia II Director's Cut Announced Mar 30, 2011, 19:13 Lorcin
 
I finished Mafia 2 without the DLC and was REALLY happy to see the credits. For me completing just the base game took a lot of determination to make sure I hadn't wasted my money.

The story was weak and predictable, the characters almost universally unlikeable and the main character quite regularly made major plot decisions which I had no control over and he always chose the "this is a fucking bad idea" option.

There's no way on earth I wanna play add on's where even more unlikeable characters make me wish I was in any way in control.

I understand why the main character had to make the choices he did - it was so the story could follow it's predictable crappy path to the end. But that just smacks of bad writing when at pivotal moments of the story arc your left screaming "no you fucking idiot" at the screen.

Yeah to begin with - but it's pretty obvious from halfway through the 1st book Martin has no idea where the story is going and is completely out of his depth.

It wouldn't surprise me at all that he announces the series will actually be 17 books and the wall is actually made of sand and the bodies of miraculously resurrected royals he needs to complete his story.

I was only slightly "MEH" until the bad guy who really really wanted to be Darth turned up. Now the game holds as much appeal as Star Wars Galaxies for me.

They need to merge Lucas's franchise with their games - not try and cater for the die-hard fans. Catering has been tried so many times in mmos and it's never worked (matrik, warhammer, D&D etc etc)

I found the switch to 3rd in cover jarring too - but I'm sure that was because I wasn't expecting it. I'm sure if I was actually pressing the key that triggered that transition it would be fine.

I agree about the takedowns having to be 3rd person - Mirror's Edge proved the problems with 1st person melee.

Pritchard's voice is dreadful - I'm guessing he turns out to be a bad guy later in the game and we get to shoot him which will be nice.

Does electricity actually look like that in water?

Oh none to keen on the highlighting, the regenerating health or the fact that the so called stealth takedowns were far from silent - are the other guards deaf or just don't hear a heavily armoured full grown man hitting the deck?

"Bluesnews people are all haters" demographic

Or as I believe the saying goes "Don't hate the players hate the (other) game".

Had to add "other" as this one looks good and I loved the first one. It's the exception that proves the rule to my blanket mantra "Licensed games are poo" which my kids get every time they wave the latest Ben10 game under my nose.

It's kinda horseshit that simply an average metacritic score will send investors apeshit to sell their stock. But that's how wonderful the stock market is nowadays.

Can't disagree. Is there even a competitor to Metacritic? Seems an opportunity for a startup.

Gamerankings?

Could also be down to the run time - every year shooters seem to get shorter and shorter but this is truly getting ridiculous.

I remember the Wages Of Sin add on came out back in 99 - it was 20 and as I completed it in 4 hours I promptly took it back to the shop the next day in utter disgust.

Unreal, Half-Life (1+2) even Quake and Doom would have never sold the amount they if their run times had been 5 hours. Christ didn't it take a good 3 or 4 hours just to play the shareware version of Doom they released to entice you to buy the rest of the game?

Oh also please don't take this the wrong way - but America is not exactly popular around the world. Maybe if they'd added the option to play as either side it may have had more impact internationally.
