I like the cheaper idea, but I'd rather have 10 Mass Effect's than 30 Silent Hill's. Or 10 Ocarina Of Time's over 30 short games.

I'm with you.

I wouldn't mind fewer games either.

It's all about balance. At the moment we have none. We have games of all lengths and sizes, all pretty much releasing in a hap hazard way, usually in this cut throat market and then being heavily discounted and forgotten.

Dang, I just posted the Telegraph Endless Ocean 2 review and they had this pic up

Which I assumed was a photo.

Until I realised that it's a scene I had witnessed and photographed myself at a different location.

The problem is, some games are short but not cheap.

And I think there are so many games coming out because of sequels, which isn't a bad thing since, like Edge said, they're good with 8-9 scores.

But I guess it's understandable that these developers keep doing them. I'm sure the first game laid the foundations so the sequel is probably ideas that didn't get in the first game with some new ones. And it must be easier for them to make a sequel since all the groundwork, back story, game engine, etc. is all made already.

I don't mind if the games are good. But it is disappointing when games are so expensive and coming out all at once.

Like January or the month of March alone. In March, there are like 7 titles I'm interested in. But there's no way I can afford all those.

Capcom did the right thing in separating their release dates for this year. I'm just glad that SSFIV comes out first, which I'm looking forward to most.

And Blaster Master Overdrive looks pretty awesome! Just saw some vids.

I have to get it soon! I hope the game is long though.

1up review says that the game is similar to Super Metroid with the maps and everything. I hope it plays like it as well with items, weapons, etc., to open new areas.

Looks sweet! Grinning

So there is a character in Endless Ocean 2 called GG.

Not a name I entered for a save file, an actual guy who wants you to call him GG.

r4e0527.jpg

This is my own picture I took^ He cracks me up.

Telegraph review

"New characters offer plentiful distractions, too - cocksure salvage expert GG brings requests from those who want specific treasures digging up, while enabling you to fish five more items from the sea per dive."

IGN review

"As well as getting up close and personal with everything from tiny shrimps to awesome whales, your adventurous spirit ensures that you'll also be scouring for treasure and poking around grand shipwrecks and submerged buildings - all the while unravelling a deliciously bonkers storyline involving singing sea creatures and an intellectually challenged dude who wants you to call him 'GG'. "

Eurogamer review

"It's not just the locations adding spice, either. Your diving crew gradually gathers some colourful (and amusingly but clumsily portrayed) characters into its ranks, including a jive-talking treasure hunter called GG and a Japanese lady scientist."

If you go to the UK site

http://www.nintendo.co.uk/NOE/en_GB/games/wii/endless_ocean_2_adventures_of_the_deep_13715.html?l

Click on immersive adventure then characters and there is a listing for GG!

"GG is an ambitious american salvage diver. He is cheerful and speaks in a light hearted manner, but is very accomplished in his field, having single handedly salvaged several famous treasures. His real name is Gary Gray but he tells everyone to call him GG."

Personally I'd rather have too many games to choose from then too few. I don't have to buy every game that I'm interested in. There's so many people out there with different tastes that I think it makes it good to have an abundance of great games like this. Also I think it's good to have a continual push that brings in new consumers.

That is does, Askie-boy... That it does.

Are there different weapons you can get? You know, the weapons that allow you to open up close-off areas like Metroid?

I'm getting it anyway, just want to be more excited for it!

Samurai Shodown Sen coming to America!

500x_samurai.jpg

Originally slated for release last November as Samurai Shodown: Edge of Destiny, the 11th game in SNK's weapons fighting franchise will be released this spring in North America as Samurai Shodown Sen for the Xbox 360.

We've been wondering about the fate of Samurai Shodown: Edge of Destiny ever since original North American publisher Ignition Entertainment missed the game's original November 2009 release date. Last month Rising Star Games announced a European release of the game this spring, and now XSEED has stepped forward to claim the title for North American release.

"We are thrilled to partner with XSEED Games on SAMURAI SHODOWN as we have much respect and admiration for their approach to creatively marketing games in North America," said Soichiro Hosoya, Company President of SNK PLAYMORE CORP. "Fans of the series will no doubt enjoy this next generation offering, so we look forward to working together to deliver a truly fun arcade fighting game that continues to deliver what the series has best been known for."

Samurai Shodown Sen is a 3D version of the series, featuring a host of classic characters doing battle both offline and via online multiplayer on the Xbox 360. It should be interesting to see how that pans out, now that we know it's actually on its way.

And Blaster Master Overdrive looks pretty awesome! Just saw some vids.

1up review says that the game is similar to Super Metroid with the maps and everything. I hope it plays like it as well with items, weapons, etc., to open new areas.


That is does, Askie-boy... That it does.

Are there different weapons you can get? You know, the weapons that allow you to open up close-off areas like Metroid?

I'm getting it anyway, just want to be more excited for it!

Yes:

Floating Ability. Super Tires. Wall Climb. Wall Anchor (Grappling Hook). Diving Equipment.

I posted a blog post that's directed at software development, and I think it applies to game development as well.  The suggestion is that even if you have a great idea, it's worthless unless you execute on it; similarly, if you have a game with great ideas, it's not a great game unless it's done right.  I think that says something about so-called derivative games done right.

Samurai Shodown Sen coming to America!

500x_samurai.jpg

Originally slated for release last November as Samurai Shodown: Edge
of Destiny, the 11th game in SNK's weapons fighting franchise will be
released this spring in North America as Samurai Shodown Sen for the
Xbox 360.

We've been wondering about the fate of Samurai Shodown: Edge of
Destiny ever since original North American publisher Ignition
Entertainment missed the game's original November 2009 release date.
Last month Rising Star Games announced a European release of the game this spring, and now XSEED has stepped forward to claim the title for North American release.


"We are thrilled to partner with XSEED Games on SAMURAI SHODOWN as
we have much respect and admiration for their approach to creatively
marketing games in North America," said Soichiro Hosoya, Company
President of SNK PLAYMORE CORP. "Fans of the series will no doubt enjoy
this next generation offering, so we look forward to working together
to deliver a truly fun arcade fighting game that continues to deliver
what the series has best been known for."


Samurai Shodown Sen is a 3D version of the series, featuring a host
of classic characters doing battle both offline and via online
multiplayer on the Xbox 360. It should be interesting to see how that
pans out, now that we know it's actually on its way.

Sweet! I've been wondering about this game. Good to see it's still coming out.

Just posted story about a student suing EA and NCAA for profiting from using his likeness.  I hope this goes far, the NCAA is a racket.

Which is why HL2 is so crap. It has all the right ideas, just doesn't follow through with them. Nyaa

If ever there was a photo setting itself up perfectly for a "Funny Caption" post, this is it.  

This is a picture of "Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announced Thursday that the Islamic republic has produced its first package of highly enriched uranium just two days after beginning the process."

"Are all the women on Avatar that beautiful and blue?"
