    Wii game budgets 1/4 of HD budgets according to EA

    HappySqurriel said: Infinity Ward produces their Call of Duty games in 2 years, Epic developed Gears of War 2 in 2 years, and Insomniac developed Resitance 2 in 2 years, so why would a similar timeframe for The Conduit be so bad?   2 years for The Conduit 2 seems perfectly reasonable....

Just development vs development its >10M vs ~60 or ~1:6 between The Conduit and Killzone 2.   Yep those launch parties cost a truckload.  Especially the jewel-encrusted party hats. Man...

    I've seen it happen before. Not on my own 60GB, but on a pals. He hard-booted the system during a software update once -- that was his reasoning anyhow.He also keeps his PS3 on all the time, folding proteins, and its not super well ventilated. He's askin' for trouble, IMO. The only time my own PS3 has ever had an issue is when I was using the PS2 BC on a select couple games (Onimusha 2, as I...

    Question for mainly HD gamers.

    in Gaming Discussion on 04 February 2009

    I love Nintendo 1st party franchises -- the games don't come fast, but they are always great games.Other than that, I pretty much only use the Wii for party games, like Dokapon Kingdom, which its actually really great for, and SNES RPGs, which I have fun replaying from time to time. RPGs, unlike other genres, never really get too old to play, despite aged graphics, etc. IMO. =)...

    X-Play reviews Rygar: The Battle of Argus: 1/5

    in Nintendo Discussion on 04 February 2009

    I think the "1/5 is too low" camp probably has it right.If you ask yourself "Does Rygar Wii deserve a 2.0/10 or a 4.0/10?", lets face it, Rygar isn't an unplayably terrible game -- it deserves a 4.0/10 just by nature of decent design, even if it is old. The reviewer is (rightfully so) upset about the port being... well practically meaningless, but honestly, it deserves a higher score than...

    in Nintendo Discussion on 04 February 2009

    *Wii fanboy hat on*All-Play games are superior in all regards to 360/PS3 versions. Also, due to the rock bottom cost of development on the Wii, All-Play games should be priced around $19.99, new, in the future.Don't ever go back. You should get the football and basketball attachments for your Wiimote, for the full experience.*hat off* Honestly, Tiger Woods is it, due to the nature of the...
