Thanks for that report. Fixed the page up.

oh right, it wasn't just me then.

Was thinking it was pretty damn strange such a localized bit of weirdness like that.

no it wasn't a joke thread at all.. for what comes in that collection and how 343 reworked Halo 2, not to mention having every MP map, including all the DLC from each game, it should be 100's across the board. Some might think that's being stupid, guess I get that, but honestly for all that's there how can it be scored less.

Now, I misspoke about the other collections being simple cut and paste jobs, and I should go back and either edit that or delete it.

I agree with you btw that the MCC is fucking amazing as a piece of software, and in total it has 106 multiplayer maps btw, just insane amount butttt I think you give one indication right there as to why 343 as a studio don't really deserve to have a game on their CV with a 100 score for this, they did indeed rework Halo 2 and they are the ones who rebuilt Halo CE for the anniversary of that game but Halo 4 is the only thing in this boxset that Bungie didn't originally make, would it be fair if some company was handed an amazing IP and decided to put together a collection of it's games and recieve 100's all over the place for it? I don't think so.

what 343 has done takes nothing away from what Bungie accomplished, if anything, it's a tribute to the amazing work they did. Giving MCC a perfect score is more a statement about the overall quality and breadth of Bungie's series than it is a reflection of the company that put it together. As a comparison, think of.. I don't know.. the Beatles. 50 years later a different record company owns the rights to their music, they release a comprehensive retrospective of all their hits, remaster the audio digitally, while also keeping the integrity of certain albums like Sgt. Pepper together, package it all up in a commemorative box and release it. That would stand as a perfect compliment to their career and it would be more a reflection of their achievements than the new record company that put it together. Same thing here in my opinion. The Game, the overall package, gets the score, not 343.

on 08 November 2014

One of the main things which gets taken into account tho with games is what they bring that was new to the table, each Year Call of Duty scores less and less, each time the games get penalized more and more for not bringing more to the table.

While I agree with you that the parts going together into this box set for the price of a single game are absolutely fantastic and what the whole collection is in terms of quality in a single box is unprecedented but that said... what new is in the box? (other than online play for the halo 1 stages)

If the same games released again would get the same scores then why would any company go ahead and make new games and IPs they could just keep releasing the same game each year and expect the same score, it just can't happen like this in the real world.

If there is laws against addictive drug use then I don't understand the lack of laws against Minecraft on a Vita... that shit puts heroine to shame.

I just read your post in the Skylanders thread: "I'm 31 and I've played all three games with my wife." Sounds exactly like me, down to the age!

My wife and I just wrapped up Swap Force. Trap Team should arrive in a few days :)

We're both pretty damn busy atm and while the thought of being able to catch and use Kaos in the new game is class I think for the sake of both our courses we will probably not get Trap Team until Xmas break.... then never go back after the new year :D

What did you think of the last boss of Swap force btw? going into the portal I thought was a cool idea but it'd prolly freak out some kids that the boss is trying to get at um.

Dunno what it is about that game series but I got the original one as a gift for my better half, she had just seen some adverts for it, but yeah after we found out how good the co-op was in the first one she got me into it.... then I got it for a nephew of mine and now my brother and his wife have gotten into it too (for their son of course lol)

Cool to hear there are more people around here who can overlook the fact that a game is marketted towards a younger age and just enjoy it for the ton of work which has gone into such a great and funny dungeon crawler.

Just came here to say that I also play Skylanders. ^^
I am only 19 years old, but still!
That also counts, right? :D

on 05 October 2014

Yeah, it's great to have a co-op game I can play with the missus. Hyrule Warriors has been great on that front, also.

I thought that boss battle was very clever. Reminded me a little of Psycho Mantis, breaking the fourth wall and all.

@RGE: that counts! :-D

on 05 October 2014

Cool thing I find with skylanders is it's pretty much a diablo clone type gameplay, but each figure is a class for the game so there is going to be a figure in game that every one loves, Ever since Spyros adventure I was hooked on Gill Grunt, have S2 of him now and the Anchors away version from Swap Force, my better half actually made me a plush of him for my birthday last year.

Was well happy a few weeks back, was in a local pawn store and found a Sunburn in there, was the last of the original 32 that we were missing so now have the complete first series, found a Gnarly Tree Rex in the same place too, was a good find.

on 05 October 2014

awesome to hear there are more Skylander fans on here mr Gaming Expert btw, considering the series made over $2billion in revenue I guess it would be weird if a lot of the community here hadn't at least played it somewhere.

What were your names in the DC PSO and the NGC PSO?

Would you believe I only ever played the game offline, I think I tried the only once on the DC version of it with very little success, (eu dc came with a 28k modem in it) but that was why I loved the GC version of 1+2 so much, the 4 player split screen co-op was fantastic even if it was hindered a bit by the GC only having 2 mem cards with 4 ports for controllers lol.

on 01 October 2014

Whoa! That's a shame! Our came with a 56k. in the states! Still the Story Mode was pretty Solid to hold it up though. It always puzzled me why PSO for DC only was one player... even VER. 2 was If I recall. And the transfer between Memory Cards to play Multiplayer in GC was annoying, but it still didn't stop us from having epic duels! ;-)

PlayStation TV gets official price drop in the UK to 44.99

in Sony Discussion 2 days ago

wonder how much the package is with a DS3 included since those still come to around 55euros here. If that price drop is in effect here might well pick one of these up, already have 2 Vita systems on my psn account, this could take the 3rd slot and be a handy way to play some vita games while chilling at home....
