Elite was the first game I ever clocked up 24 hours in - I know 24 is nothing in these mmo days but back then it was a lot.

My favorite was using mining lasers to kill all the enemies when they were still just a single pixel and couldn't fire back!

Ohh love it - if even we brits can't see ourselves "rocking" to Yellow Submarine it doesn't bode well for the rest of the worlds sales figures.

Thank god for that - if this had done well we'd have ended up with Rock Band - Mozart by the end of next year!

off all the topics but my GFX card died today and the "baking it in the oven trick" worked! I'd already bought a replacement (which is going back tommorrow) but 9 minutes on gas mark 5.5 fixed it.

I've been in and out of I.T. for 15 years but this is the first time I've fixed a computer after checking with deliah smith! (I had no idea what 190c was in gas marks

Am I the only one that thought the demo was shocking slow, plodding with an almost Double Dragon level of button mashing in the fights?

I'm honestly amazed this game is reviewing above 60% from the demos.

They have the rights to the Aliens VS Attic game which is out soon - kids will lap that up.

Notice the way they said they released 6 titles in 7 months in 2008. 2009 Q1 & 2 releases were:

PC Age of Pirates 2: City of Abandoned
Wii Vertigo
Wii Pool Hall Pro

And the stunning:

Wii/DS Sudoku Ball™ – Detective

They made a loss - NOOOO. That's up there with the shock news that the people who made Terminator Salvation are closing. Shocking. Honestly.

Producing games on films that get rated 5 and 6 out of 10 is not exactly the best way to keep a business going.

Wanted was an awkward film and can't be easily changed into a game that coupled with the game coming out 9 months after the film meant I didn't even bother with a demo.

As for Terminator - jesus that franchise is like an albatross. There's not been a good Terminator game EVER (well I kind of liked Robocop VS Terminator but..). I wouldn't touch the franchise with a 10 foot pole.

Bionic Commando was ok - but not really memorable in any way and certainly not a classic or series starter (seriously anybody not spot the "big" twist within the first hour or so?).

Seriously there does to seem to be a lack of good management here and hopefully Outbreak will do better.

I loved drifting back in ridge racer 3 - since then and especially in NFS I've also found it a massive chore. Yeah hitting the odd power slide is fun but being forced to drift around every inch of the tracks - even the bloody straights - it just stupid.

News Comments > Alpha Protocol Preorders: PC Screwed Again
10. Re: Alpha Protocol Preorders: PC Screwed Again Jul 10, 2009, 21:53 Lorcin
 
Yeah, because PCs are like totally incompatible with TVs. Really.

No but keyboard + mouse + sofa = fail

Cost of keeping PC upgraded and using a 360 pad or just buying a 360???

Like I said fps, rts and of course MMO are where PC still rules - but I can't seriously think of playing WoW (or even FFXI) on my telly.

I truly believe the pc is becoming a niche not because of piracy or lack of retail space. It's purely lack of comfort that's killing PC gaming - I'd lay money on iD following Epic next game around and aiming squarely at the 3rd person console market not the slimmer FPS one. But hey, who knows maybe Phantom's lapboard will turn it all around and our beloved PC's will once again rule all game genres again!

Oh btw - as for the incompatible with telly comment my TV has a PC input socket literally 3 feet from my PC. Trouble is the TV's input is a d-sub and my PC only has DVI outputs - that's more than enough to stop most people hooking them up!

they are going to blame pirates again.

Really they should blame the TV makers! Huge plasma whilst bumming on the sofa or much smaller monitor whilst sat at a desk.

I know which I'm really starting to prefer - except for games which do actually work better on a PC like FPS, RTS etc.

Case in point I LOVED mass effect on my 360 but never got into it on my PC. Forget the pirates - it's home cinema which is doing the damage.

wow this would take one hell of an ego to watch it back and not think "I'm a twat". Think how bad you sound on a tape recorder then multiply by how many dumb faces you'd pull trying to act!

"at that time"

Now it is very common - then (when guild wars launched) for a mmo, especially a retail boxed one it was unheard of. Seriously name me one other retail boxed mmo from 2005 or eariler which was subscription free.

Section 14 again - states they can notify via their website.

Oops just realised lying in bed that section 14 is dealing with how the definition of the class can be changed. Guess I got that bit wrong. I still fail to see how terms and conditions cannot be legally binding by posting notifications or in mmo cases making you re-accept them (ala wow) every time they are changed. If you don't agree cancel the subscription properly and don't play - don't play then whinge and sue when you get caught by the small print.

Guild wars? Exception that proves the rule - especially considering they went out of their way to point out it didn't need monthly fees thereby proving that it was a generally accepted fact the mmo's did at that time.

I really don't know enough about the ins and outs of contract law regarding online contracts to justify continuing this the whole thing just seems like an attempt to get a ridiculous sum of money because one person has decided they represent over 100,000 disgruntled customers over technicalities and legalities of what happened when accounts were not kept/cancelled properly. Guess kinda like the RIAA in reverse.

If you want though my wife has just started her contract law module for her law degree - so I could ask her in a couple of months

Section 14 again - states they can notify via their website. Given the plantiffs list that in their case I assumed you meant it was up to Square to prove their innocence by providing the required 5 years of websites mirrors.
