    The poll on the front page is ridiculous

    in Sales Discussion on 26 July 2009

    I think Uncharted 2 will almost undoubtedly be the biggest game. As the only PS3 exclusive, it's not limited by the size of a DVD. While the other games will probably be in the range of 3GB-9.5GB, Uncharted 2 will likely be at least 15+ GB, making it the biggest game of the holiday season, barring any PS3 game where the devs decide to put the BD storage to use by shipping the textures as...

    Will another Halo game ever sell 10 million again?

    in Sales Discussion on 26 July 2009

    It's quite possible, if Microsoft keeps the Halo franchise almost synonymous with the Xbox franchise (in a good way, not a limiting way), that the premier Halo title for the next Xbox will see similar sales and a very high attach rate. For instance, I'm not a Halo fan at all, I'm not even really a big FPS fan (the last FPS I really got into was Quake 2, heh). I bought my 360 for Tales of...

    How much do REVIEWS affect sales?

    in Sales Discussion on 26 July 2009

    Reviews have a high effect on sales, but as has been said, are only one factor among many. Furthermore, they affect different games and gamers differently. Examining the factors that go into a game purchase are really fascinating, and something that I'm sure publishers do a fair amount of secret research into.Reviews are far more important to new IPs though, obviously. Many people will buy a...

    So what physical medium will Microsoft be using for their next gen console?

    in Microsoft Discussion on 25 July 2009

    I doubt a USB stick, if only because I'd expect a more proprietary interface for the same thing. If/when consoles do move to solid state storage, I imagine they'll be in custom-built enclosures, like the DS cards are (anyone know what the DS cards are actually based off of?).As it is, I'd expect the to go with a BD drive, just to be conservative. Though if solid state storage ever does take over...

    Famitsu's 10 "Perfect" Games and your opinions

    in Gaming Discussion on 23 July 2009

    This thread has sealed my opinion that gamers give far, far too much significance over numerical scores in game reviews. They are a useful general guide, but the important part of a review is discussing the actual gameplay and such. Furthermore, quality being subjective, different people will give different games different scores. I've sunk dozens and dozens of hours into a game that has a 59% on...

    Most Underrated Games You've Played

    in Gaming Discussion on 23 July 2009

    Also, I should mention Resistance Retribution. IMHO, it's the best PSP game, and one of the best handheld games I've ever played. It got decent reviews, but sales are pretty miserable. Dunno if that's piracy or just a lack of interest....

    Most Underrated Games You've Played

    in Gaming Discussion on 22 July 2009

    Tales of Veseria.I bought my 360 when it released, because the reviews and stuff interested me, and almost a year later, I still haven't beaten it because I don't want it to end. :-/ I do that with RPGs a lot, heh. FF4 took me a year to beat, and I've been playing FF6 for almost 10 years without beating it, 2.5 years on my current save (I'm on the World of Ruin!)....

    When will sony dicontiune the ps2?

    in Sony Discussion on 21 July 2009

    It's quite possible that it'll last a lot longer than that, if Sony tries to use it as their main console in developing markets and such. I heard that the PS2 is the only viable console in Brasil, for instance, because of that country's insane 150% tax on foreign electronics, making a PS2 $250, in an already much poorer country.I can't imagine a $1000 PS3 will be taking off in Brasil any time...

    The best silent protagonist

    in Gaming Discussion on 18 July 2009

    Offhand, Isaac from Dead Space and Gordon Freeman from HL come to mind.Giving a bit of thought, Mario, in the RPGs is pretty silent (and hilarious in SMRPG, when he acts everything out), and in the platformers doesn't say much beyond "It's-a me, Mario" and "So long King Bowser"....

    From wich publisher do you get most of your games from?

    in Gaming Discussion on 18 July 2009

    Like pretty much anyone with a Wii + DS, Nintendo is the biggest publisher I have, by far. Squeenix probably comes in second, with a nice selection across several consoles and (especially) handhelds, and Sony third (or possibly second, close with Squeenix) with a great number of PS[123P] games. After that it's just a mix of random companies....

    Will Modern Warfare 2 affect Assassin Creed 2 and Left 4 Dead sales?

    in Sales Discussion on 14 July 2009

    L4D2 will be seriously hurt by MW2, the fact that it's only been a year since L4D1, and, honestly, L4D2 doesn't look like it adds a ton to L4D1, so I'm not really sure if I, let alone more casual buyers, would feel compelled to buy it.Assassin's Creed, I really don't know. I'm still amazed at the insane sales for a new IP. I can't remember if AC1 had a lot of hype, or was more of a sleeper hit...

    Is DS Lite still the best or is DSi truely the new King? What do you think

    in Nintendo Discussion on 14 July 2009

    Pfft. DS PHAT ALL THE WAY!!!!Hehe, I got my DS release week, and still haven't upgraded. Probably will get a DSi at some point when there's good DSi titles, and I largely finish playing GBA games. As it is now, I play GBA games on my DS about as much as I do DS games.As for DSL vs DSi, it pretty much boils down to how much you play GBA games....
