    So am I the only one loosing interest in playing games?

    in Gaming Discussion on 08 February 2009

    The same thing happens to me from time to time. I was pretty hardcore up until the PS2 came out, but it kind of disappointed me so it collected dust until I decided to pick up a gamecube late in the gen. Warioware and Mariokart got me back in. I guess my life had changed and I needed a different type of game. This excitement dovetailed nicely with the wii party game madness but it has faded. I am...

    Muramasa: The Demon Blade new EPIC trailer, vids, screens, art, boxart!!!

    in Nintendo Discussion on 07 February 2009

    I must say this in my mind is classic hardcore gaming glory. Of course that means it will sell like garbage. I would take it any day over the new Ninja Gaiden, Prince of Persia, Assaasin's Creed, Tenchu etc. All million sellers and this poor game will struggle to 100K worldwide in my opinion.I would just love it if Marvelous would get breakout hits with their excellent games like this and Little...

    What's the worst case that can happen to game industry?

    in Gaming Discussion on 24 January 2009

    The worst possibility is when companies do not respond to market desires and try to tell the market what it wants, or to rest on the laurels of previous accomplishment.We have seen this in great video game crash before. Also just look to the auto industry where the big 3 crammed crappy cars down the throats of consumers in the 80s forcing them to the Japanese brands. We have seen arrogance...

    What is the most efficient way to RROD my 360.

    IGN gives NHL09 an 9.0 anyone impressed?

    in Gaming Discussion on 07 September 2008

    MontanaHatchet said: The two things that amaze me about the NHL series are that it's easily the best sports series from Electronic Arts, and also one of the worst selling. There are tons of hockey fans in America and Canada, so why hasn't a single game in the series passed 500k (at least from my last check)?Anyways, nice to see a quality game on the market.   Take a look at the...

    RROD percentage rate?

    in Microsoft Discussion on 30 August 2008

    All reports are that the the RROD issue has been improved significantly, but not fixed. The fix is decrease the amount of heat that comes from the GPU. So anyone squeemish should just wait for jasper.There is enough annecdotal evidence like that given from Neogaf, and Microsofts 1 Billion $ commitment, so that most people can just get the system if they like the games.But if you are an obsessive...

    Will the pc be be the first to get real-life graphics?

    in PC Discussion on 14 August 2008

    Ug not this nonsense again. I remember when Photo-Realistic graphics were only a couple of years away. But somehow that prerelease marketing for the PS2 never panned out. Hell I remember when the n64 was in development and people thought that would do it. Frankly the best movies out today don't pass muster with me when they insert cgi for 1 person. And that is many millions spent on prerendering...

    X360 Price Cut - Effect on MSFT financials - Analysis - With Actual Numbers

    in Sales Discussion on 03 August 2008

    Even if they do sustain revenue with a 30% increase in sales, there cost is only going down slightly.Yes I realize that Jasper is coming but they would have those saving per unit no matter what they were selling. They will make slightly more based on my prediction of a larger percentage of units being the slightly cheaper to make Arcade.As for if the 360 will be sold at a loss or not I really...

    Will you now NOT buy PS3, because of FFXIII going multi?

    in Sony Discussion on 20 July 2008

    #6I think that we will see FFXII delayed in the US. Maybe by then a slimline PS3 at $199 will come out. It is really going to take both of those things before I buy. Before going multiplatform I might have jumped sooner for final fantasy but now not so much....
