I think I'm sad about CING. I couldn't give a crap about LKS (I bought it on week 1 at full price so I am entitled to full bitch license regarding the game) - most overrated game of last year.  On the other hand, I really enjoyed Hotel Dusk. Definitely one of the better mystery/adventure games to come out in quite a while.  Hope we're still able to get a copy of the sequel.

Never played LKS but I did enjoy Hotel Dusk. Seems they made some really good games, wonder why Nintendo didn't outright buy them. Well I guess their games didn't sell well. Oh well that sucks to hear.

LOL Oh, Ubisoft.  I love when the DRM goes this horribly wrong so maybe these people who say "Oh it's not so bad" when there's DRM in a game see where that attitude leads us.

From the Nintendo Go article from a couple of days ago -- the Fragile review.  Pretty discouraging. Nintendo Power is pretty straight done the middle on reviews.
"- sloppy combat
- poor design decisions
- "In an adventure driven by story and mood, all the gameplay needed to do was stay out of the way."
- randomly breaking weapons
- strictly limited inventory space
- final third of the game is generic and focuses on the combat
- game is not completely dismissed, but has serious flaws"

I pre-ordered this based on the settings and art, now I'm thinking of canxing my pre-order to wait and see what others say.

Newly acquired games (this week) :

Moon - DS FPS published by Mastiff
End War - PS3 Voice activated RTS
Ghostbusters - 360
Infamous - PS3
Pre-ordered Yakuza 3.

Now Playing:
Getting back into Chrono Trigger on DS.  Playing Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance co-op with the wife.  This game, which predates the Untold Legends games, is identical to them.  It uses the same engine as Fallout: The Brotherhood and Bard's Tale (which I found of interest).

It was known Fragile lacked in the gameplay department from the Japanese release and its reviews, but it should still be a unique adventure that I'm sure will click for some people enough to really enjoy it. I don't know if those quotes really represent what Nintendo Power wrote, why didn't the person tell us the score they gave it, or any of the positive things they had to say, instead of just tell us "they didn't completely dismiss" it which is way too vague and like the person colored the impressions with his personal opinion more than anything.

Here's an Italian review. I don't know if they can be trusted or anything, it's just the only one on metacritic as of now, I checked to see if they listed the NP review and its score and saw this instead.

"Fragile Dreams is definitely better than the sum of its parts: while there are some gameplay and controls issues, the excellent work made by Tri Crescendo in terms of setting, characters and storyline is really what will make you go on until the credits roll."

Nintendo didn't buy them for the same reasons Nintendo didn't buy Rareware, and the same reasons they didn't publish Disaster or Fatal Frame 4 in North America, and the same reasons they let Silicon Knights go after Eternal Darkness bombed; they're all about the profits and they didn't think this would make them more of it.

Dark Alliance was awesome fun back in the day, and one of the first games to really push the PS2 production values-wise. I remember it had the best pools of water I had ever seen in 2001.

The developer Snowblind Studios then went on to create the Champions of Norrath series, which used an enhanced version of the engine.

That's the worst review/impressions I've seen so it may not be representitive of the curve.

Little Kings Story though, the game has Nintendo polish, Nintendo charm, possible more depth than your average Nintendo game and it several times longer than the likes of Pikmin. Sad

Nintendo has been publishing their games, two another codes, two hotel dusks and now kaput. Sad that they didn't pick them up.

In case anyone missed my post in the midst of the sad news about CING:

So the chases in Shattered Memories are awesome.

Picture it, you're walking around the everyday world looking for your daughter in this desolate town when suddenly the crackling sound of the world freezing over appears. The entire landscape starts morphing, ice crackling all over the environment, some blocking off paths.

You know what's coming and the words "Oh shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit" starts playing in your head whilst you grin Grinning

Then, you're lost and wondering where to go. You turn a corner and suddenly some faceless freak beast thing -caught in your flashlight- sees you and points, a terrifying scream pierces the air as he summons his freak beast mates.

And the words "Oh shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit" starts repeating in your head. You turn and run, full tilt headed god knows where. You see a ledge and run full pelt towards it, leap over it like a steeplechase runner, hit the floor running and head towards a building.

BAM, you smash through a door in one movement, BAM through another door into a larger room. You see monsters in your peripheral vision, some rush at you from the side, you barely dodge them and then get caught in the next room. You have to turn in an awkward direction and your run is stopped. Freak beasts pile on top of you, you motion your controller to throw them off, screeching follows as you pelt away again.

Now you look back and have 4 of them on your tail, you run past and obstacle and physically motion to throw down the object in front of them and keep running, no time to look back.

Suddenly things are quiet, you must of lost them for now. You turn off your torch, take out your map and look around, ah I should be going here? You redirect your position to head in a straight line towards your destination but you know it wont be that simple.

Walking slowly, you creep along, as you approach a creature on the left the static crackles out of the wii remote. "Shit, shit, shit" you pause. Then it moves on and so do you. Just as you approach a building you spot a creature on your right, and IT spots you. The chase is back on!

You burst into a building, slam your fucking shoulder through the door, into another room, three doors in this room, which one to choose, no time to think, JUST RUN!

They are closer and closer, the creatures are so close you can feel their hot breath on the back of your neck, their screams pierce into your brain.

You enter a large chamber.

In a fraction of second you notice an unlit flare on the ground, but its in some kind of well like crevice. Do you run for the door or do you run for the flare? Suddenly notice another creature in front of you, the flare sits between you. Can I make it to the flare? Or will it get there first?

FUCK IT! You run headfirst for the flare, the creature is running straight for you and you're running towards it! "OMG OMG OMG"....

You get there first and rip the top off that flare, its light fizzes around you and the creatures stumble back.

"Fuck you!" you hear in your head.

And then whilst the flare is fizzling out, you look for and find the exit, slamming out the last door from darkness into daylight.

Your eyes adjust to the cold light of day, the nightmare is over.

Wow, you say. Just wow.

Wow Sony might be doing a Nunchuk? Very curious to see if that's real or not, and what Nintendo's response might be.  I wouldn't be entirely surprised to see Nintendo throw a lawsuit at them for no other purpose than the screw with Sony's motion control launch date. I know that controllers have a long history of being similarly designed, but being sort of a pioneer in the world of motion controllers they might want to take a chance and see if they can lay down some law.

Didn't the E3 prototype already have a stick on top of one unit?

IMO Sony's pad needs an analog stick attatchment to be effective. Imagine the Wii if all it was was a remote? It would suck ass. You NEED to be able to control your movement and the analog stick is still the best way to do that in a 3D space.

Hell, IMO Nintendo and Sony could use a stick on the remotes as well, as camera movement has been sluggish at best in games where the remote acts as a 2nd stick. Mostly in 3rd person games. Its too jerky.

I think it's almost perfect as it is. The pointer may not be 1:1 (in games that lack calibration, it's 1:1 for some lightgun shooters) but it still only follows your movements, if it's too jerky, then your hand is. Most do seem to have some smoothing on top. Try resting it in your lap rather than holding it up or whatever some people seem to do. Controlling an analog stick and aiming on top with the same hand would be less than ideal too, you'd probably end up first adjusting the view with the stick, then aiming, constantly shifting between the two, not concurrently as you do with the standard setup now, in games like Prime 3. You'd also lack the A button usage if the thumb was instead dedicated to camera movement almost all the time.

It worked ok in RE4 because the camera was on the left hand, and you couldn't even move and shoot at the same time. I'd have preffered it if the camera worked as in Prime 3 there too instead but oh well, the controls were great still. I suppose what you're asking for is kind of in The Crystal Bearers, where you have the pointer to interact with objects of enemies yet the camera is adjusted by the d-pad. Sure, a d-pad isn't as good as an analog stick for such a task, but the controls in that game are problematic for more reasons than that. Personally I controlled that game OK due to being used to controlling a camera like that in Monster Hunter (though that obviously lacks the pointer aspect) but for most people it's even worse.

The reason the two wands would be cool with an analog stick on them is not to use it at the same time but to be able to dual wield and still have character control. Alas their design changes put a stop to that so now it's a glorified wii remote + nunchuck setup, whether they actually have a nunchuck or it's just paired with a dual shock.
