Stalkers survive much better. Terran I am looking forward too, but really haven't had a chance to check out. The nerf put Marines and Marauders with proper upgrades into a sweet spot so it takes an extra...

Are you serious?  Advertising is especially important to games that doesn't have a defined audience.  You know whats the most popular game out this gen?  COD:MW2.  Do you know how much advertising it got?

    Red Steel 2 - getting any advertising?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 29 March 2010

    So I was surprised to find out Red Steel 2 has been out for almost a week already.  Haven't heard much anymore.  I showed this game/review with a friend and he's already ordered it.  But virtually no hype anywhere else, disappointing for one of the best games to come out on the wii this year. Anybody getting to hear about it?...

I plan on upgrading from my 42" to a 46"-50" this summer so I'll be glad that FFXIII is 1080p then. You realize that its 1080p CUTSCENES right?  Gameplay wise, its the same.  However, with all the cutscenes in FF...

    in Sales Discussion on 01 February 2010

    Likely they way overshipped Bionic Commando. Lets face it, 700k isn't actually all that high for supposed a large important multiplatform game from the largest and successful Capcom. A lot probably sold in bargain bins at peanuts. And while people may say that Capcom gets all that money anyway cause they sold to retailers, they won't. A lot of contracts are set up with claw back provisions...
