    I owe Halo a huge apology! (Master Chief Collection Halo 1 thoughts)

    in Microsoft Discussion, last active on on 11 July 2016

    As some of you know, I took the plunge a few months ago and bought myself an Xbox One. The main drivers being Sunset Overdrive, Forza Horizon 2 and the Rare Replay collection. I had also seen some positive buzz for Halo 5 and knew Quantum Break and Gears of War 4 was also on the horizon. So when I got my Xbox One, Halo 5 was on clearance too so I managed to get a brand new Limited Edition...

    Which system will have more physical 2017 Western releases? PSV v Wii U

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 19 June 2016

    Okay this one's dead simple. With the Vita now having it's first 2017 release confirmed, we know both systems are getting at least one physical game. A slight diversion from the which system will sell more hardware. Which system do you think will receive more physical releases in the West (Americas/PAL territories). It's the next epic round of the great Vita Wii U saga! Wii U - Definitely has...

    My biggest Wii U dissapointment

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 25 May 2016

    As we know pretty much know, the Wii U game lineup is all but finalised. There are people gutted there wasn't a "proper" 3D Mario. I loved 3D World. There are people gutted there isn't going to be an exclusive Wii U Zelda. I couldn't care less, we got a great Donkey Kong and a great Pikmin! However, Wii U for me has lacked what is an intrinsically essential title in Europe. There hasn't been a...

    VG Chartz OAPs (25+) What were your fave obscure games? 8-16 bit

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 28 March 2016

    Ay Up! Strange topic I know, but I got reminiscing as I'm sure we all do when we grew up in a gaming time that is totally different to now. So here's a chance to discuss what older games you grew up loving, that nobody has ever heard of now! For my contribution, I really wanted to put Top Gear/Racer forward. It was basically a typical 8-16 bit  racer from Gremlin Interactive (now known I...

    Okay, I got an XB1! (Updated)

    in Microsoft Discussion, last active on on 11 February 2016

    Okay, I always said I would wait until the thing was under £200 with a game I wanted before I "jumped in". However, I find myself in the unusual position this month, of having more than enough left over money to buy one at current rates and I accidentally listened to the original Banjo Kazooie OST last night while listening to a Greatest Chip Music playlist. I already have a PS4, Wii U,...

    Is it acceptable for a Political leader to shun the National Anthem?

    in Politics Discussion, last active on on 21 September 2015

    It's been causing a big stir in the UK with people pretty divided. But Jeremy Corbyn, who was recently elected as the leader of the Labour party (the current biggest opposition political party in the UK) chose not to sing the National Anthem at a 75th anniversary Battle of Britain ceremony because he does not believe in God and is also a republican (as in does not believe in the monarchy). Given...

    Does exclusivity increase your enjoyment of a game?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 08 September 2015

    Simple question. There's so much focus on here about list wars of console exclusive, manufacturer exclusive and games other systems are lacking and they are constantly used to justify who has the best console. So I was just curious, do you automatically get more enjoyment out of a game if it is exclusive to a console? Personally, I play games, I like to play the best version of a multiplatform...

    We Almost Got a Wii U F-Zero created by Burnout Studio Criterion

    Interesting confirmation of a dead project: Sorry if already posted, F-Zero and F Zero turn up no results on the thread search :( Would have been shown off at E3 2011 F-Zero is one of those franchises which Nintendo fans are constantly clamouring for, and not an E3 passes without demands from the masses for a brand-new entry. The series has been dormant for quite some time, although recent...

    Sony open Morpheus focussed studio near former Studio Liverpool?

    in Sony Discussion, last active on on 17 May 2015

    Sony have opened a new 1st party studio in the "North West" of England. http://gematsu.com/2015/05/sony-opens-new-vr-focused-first-party-studio The studio will focus exclusively on content for Morpheus. The geographical location could suggest that they might be looking for some of their old talent from the now defunct Studio Liverpool? Not exactly sure where the new studio is based, but if it's...

    XBO with Witcher 3 + Batman Arkham Knight - 299 (UK Only)

    in Microsoft Discussion, last active on on 16 April 2015

    Any UKer's looking for an XB1, this is by far the best deal I've seen for the console yet. So this thread is more of a heads up for a pre order that ShopTo are taking where you get the system, The Witcher 3 and the new Batman game for the "Special Limited" £299 price that the system alone had just been dropped...

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 28 March 2015

    So I'm bored, and have found out most of escapist magazine's talent has now left. Anyone got any good Video Bloggers they like to watch? I'm looking for some game related stuff to watch. I used to love Angry Nintendo Nerd back in the day and still enjoy zero punctuation. But I'd like some other fun stuff to watch....

    PS TV now has an RRP 44.99 in the UK

    in Sony Discussion, last active on on 28 March 2015

    Sorry if this has already been posted. But an official PlayStation facebook post has advertised that the price of a PS TV in the UK has dropped from £84.99 to £44.99 and mentioned the deal is available at Argos for anyone who is interested: Looks like they're looking to clear out the European stock now having had a bit of a firesale of it in the US in...

    EA Abandon Dedicated Handhelds? - Mobile Gaming the future or the 3DS' successor?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 27 January 2015

    Taken from an interview on gamesindustry.biz: We were supportive of both of those platforms (3DS/Vita), but then you've got finite resources and you've got teams that say, 'We really think that two or three years from now, these are the platforms that people are going to be consuming games on.' And you look at the quality of what you can do on phones and tablets... Sometimes strategy is not...

    I know, I know! The system with no games, and I'm about to get my 100th physical title for it. I get my bonus next week, so I'm going to order game number 100. I'm going to let VGC decide what that title is! So vote up! To see how mean people are on here, I've put a few awful titles on to go with the good stuff. Vote away. :D...

    de Blob to return?

    Woo! I know there are a fair few other de Blob fans (was one of my favourite Wii games) so thought I'd share the happy news :D I'd love to see another game in the series. http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2014-10-31-de-blob-ip-purchased-by-nordic-games-could-see-a-comeback.  When THQ when kaput last year its assets were auctioned off to the highest bidder with Darksiders and Red...

    The top 25 (Vita) No Gaemz! - Shock horror there are actual games o_O

    in Sony Discussion, last active on on 20 October 2014

      According to many on the internet the PS Vita has no games, and has nothing worth buying the system for. We want to put this ridiculous notion to bed right now; whilst the library many not contain as many big hitting titles as we would have hoped at this point, to say it has no games is very far from the truth – seeing as we have reviewed over 200 of the games available for the...

    Is Gamescom now a bigger/more important event than E3?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 13 August 2014

    Exactly what it says on the tin. There have been some pretty major bombshells at GamesCom, arguable more so than E3 provided in June. Microsoft unveiled Lara's ass won't be on PlayStation first for the first time in the franchise's history as far as I know. Sony also went crazy on new game announcements for PS4 in retaliation (while E3 on the otherhand was more reiterating what we already...
