Re: LA Noire review

It's funny how most gaming media seem to conveniently overlook how awful combat has been in GTA games since GTA 3. Obviously due to the ridiculous amount of praise Rockstar receive for those games it...

Re: LA Noire review

As soon as I was let loose to go where I want on the first case I decided to get the tedium of collecting those film reels and finding landmarks out of the way. Needless to say, I wasn't patiently...

Re: The Witcher 2

Didn't realise he gave Killzone 3 a 10/10. That's pretty bad. I can't defend that at all, so you got me there.

Still, he's no perfect, and I'm not saying he's the pinnacle of gaming reviews, it's...

Re: The Witcher 2

I don't always agree with him either, but he at least displays a consistent approach and is actually a reviewer who you can easily identify for his style. Most reviewers (literally, like 95% of them)...

Re: LA Noire review

Ahhh, that kinda sounds worrying then. I think I got a fair bit to go until I'm anywhere near the end, so will make sure to cherish the cases that don't try and hand-hold too much.



Haha, I...

Re: LA Noire review

Just to add my irrelevant take on this game (irrelevant because no-one ultimately cares, but I'm selfish enough to want to get my opinion heard regardless =p), I'm ultimately satisfied with what I...

Re: The Witcher 2

Yeah, my early enthusiasm for the game has kinda died now. The little annoyances have kinda weighed me down now, during Chapter 2, such as the awful inventory management with crafting and not being...

Re: The Witcher 2

I was in doubt whether the game would ever go to consoles, but I do think it is part of the plan now after playing it (not in a bad way). In fact, I would be happy to see it on consoles since CD...

Re: The Witcher 2

Nice examples there. I'm reading some people are complaining about the combat, but as you just pointed out the game is more than merely hacking until you win, and so if you go into a fight without...

Re: The Witcher 2

Yeah Oblivion was a pretty low point, I agree. It's more annoying because if it wasn't for PC gamers Oblivion wouldn't even exist in the first place -- since it's PC gamers that helped Elder Scrolls...

Re: The Witcher 2

I'm surprised to see some reviews for it already, especially those posted a mere day after release, since the game is likely 40+ hours long. I don't think any media got early copies, so although I'm...

Re: PS3 = Dead

Completely agree. That console cycle was my favourite of all I think.

But yeah, in those days if you wanted something like Tekken or Final Fantasy, you went with PS2. If you wanted the usual...

Re: PS3 = Dead

Someone asked this on the European PlayStation site and the official response was that you will indeed get 4 games for free (2 on each device).



Yep, that's what I think too. That's why I...

Re: The Witcher 2

I'm cautious when I say similar to Demon's Souls, but that's honestly the vibe I get at the moment. If it's on normal then it'll likely feel like a typical RPG hack 'n' slash, but on hard having to...

Re: PS3 = Dead

Since this thread is still going, what do you guys make of the "welcome back" package?

I'm lucky in that the only game I own on that list is WipEout, but I won't deny the prospect of owning any of...

Re: The Witcher 2

Yep, got it this morning and played a few hours. It's early days, but initial impressions are extremely positive. The game is so far in advance of the original that I've come to the conclusion that...

I had problems with KotOR specifically too. I tried running it in compatibility mode for XP but it still crashed like crazy.

Re: PS3 = Dead

Re: PS3 = Dead

I agree that the PS3 isn't perhaps as strong as the PS2, and there's no denying that losing former exclusives like Devil May Cry, Tekken, Final Fantasy and other big Japanese titles has hurt Sony's...

Re: PS3 = Dead

Yikes, that looks nice. Wish my case was as good as that. :p

I still got some outdated X-Blade crap.

Also, it's definitely exhausting and annoying for a while, and there were several times I...

Re: PS3 = Dead

That just tells me the games available on the PS3 aren't to your tastes, much like the majority of 360 titles aren't to mine. Somehow, I don't feel inclined to say 360 = Dead, though, even based on...

Re: PS3 = Dead

I was bitter too, but eventually decided to invest in PC gaming properly a few years ago and haven't looked back since. In fact, I've spent the past few months getting this computer ready for The...

Re: PS3 = Dead

Wow, haven't looked at the forum part of this site in years, but felt like I should look at this thread when it was linked on Twitter.

Anyway, I do feel the PS3 gets a bad rep these days (pre-PSN,...

Re: Please rate this review: Mass Effect

Well written review, the only problem I have with it is your actual opinion of the game, rather than the way it is written (which is actually a good thing!).

Mass Effect has a great story and...
