    GAME OF THE YEAR; Uncharted 2 or Modern Warfare 2

    in Gaming Discussion on 12 November 2009

    I purchased both on day one. Uncharted 2 was one of the greatest gaming experiences I've ever had. MW2 is a lot of fun but I do feel as though I've played the same game twice in the past two years. I've always had a preference for games with strong storytelling. And in that regard Uncharted 2 has few (if any) peers. Personally I'd give it game of this generation and I'm not even sure it'd be a...

    So Where The Recent Adjustments Wrong?

I expect some differences with other tracking services - it's inevitable - but month after month I'm shocked with how the data NPD releases makes no sense and seems to yo-yo. Some months it is way higher than ours,...

    The Recession VS. Videogames - Your Thoughts?

    in Sales Discussion on 16 February 2009

    The sheer size of Japan's recession will ensure that it affects the videogames industry. GDP in Japan was down 4.6 per cent over the year to the December quarter, which is nothing short of remarkable.Even if consumers show a willingness to purchase videogames, the contraction in credit and it's general availability will ensure that producers will struggle over the next few years - particularly...

It's one of the few games tempting me to get a 360.Though I never played the old Banjos to compare.   There's nothing wrong with the game. It is quite simply a great game, who's biggest crime is that it doesn't appeal directly towards the general 360 userbase....

    Jaos said:I was pretty disappointed when BK 3 was unveiled as a vehicle building platformer, so even if it's a good game, I'm half way glad it didn't sell that well if it sends a signal to the developers. Though it would be better if it was the other way round: it being a more traditional platformer selling great.    It essentially sends the signal that there's little...

    Reviews - Should Graphics Effect The Score?

    in Gaming Discussion on 09 February 2009

    If graphics can effect the gaming experience then they should effect the review score. End of story.While there are a number of valid points here, these situations are the exception rather than the rule. Quality gameplay and graphics tend to be highly correlated, as both are indicative of high production values and effort. Games that are relatively ugly compared to other games on that console,...
