I work at a Gamestop subsidiary and would NEVER consider trading in unless the games I hard were mild curiosities or completely awful. In fact, I don't even purchase my own games there. Smart gamers buy and sell online. At the end of the day, it's a business, and a thriving one at that. Why? Because we target mothers and impressionable kids to pre-order, trade, purchase add-ons and give them reasons to come back.

Yes it's pushy and some customers are made uncomfo... #14

SON, that joke went sour the day it was created (50 internet years ago). #2.1

Almost thought it might need a kickstarter at this stage. Thought it was dead in the water. Glad to see it's working out. #3

It was pretty much the true successor to the Final Fantasy series, and I only discovered it when I bought my 360 in late '09. Fantastic RPG and an essential for the 360. Definitely deserved to be released on both consoles. Alas, it meets the same fate as Xenoblade Chronicles. #1.3.1

Can't stand Molyneux in the slightest, but the concept for this game is a smart one. I'm willing to bet someone will purchase the diamond pickaxe within seconds of the game releasing. Not sure about the "surprise" though. Knowing Molyneux and his "surprises", it could very well be a gigantic disappointment. #2

Nice observation, except you completely gloss over the fact that Sucker Punch has the resources and talent behind it to make an EXCLUSIVE title for ONE console. Not to mention the deadlines Activision put in place for their developers without giving them the necessary time to polish and complete a title that needs to be released on THREE platforms.

Be objective about it. This story really doesn't have anything to do with Prototype regardless. This is about tearing down a... #39.1.1

Well, the idea was to get "legends in the making". I think LeBron just about supersedes that by currently being the best player in the game and worthy of legendary status. The 3 that are currently on the cover are looking to form a dynasty within their respective teams, thus the "in the making". #10

Prototype is what it is. At the end of the day, this industry is becoming a corporate machine, churning out the same product year after year and further distancing themselves from the average indie developer.

I can't say I was into Prototype myself, but I played a hell of a lot of The Simpsons: Hit and Run and Hulk: Ultimate Destruction, and I'm hugely thankful that Radical Entertainment made those games. I'm also thankful Radical continued to make games that, whi... #32.1

I disagree Derek. This is something a developer has NEVER DONE BEFORE, and should definitely be considered in future releases. To call Bioware careless or lazy is understating the enormous amount of work they've put into the series. Gamers act as if the ending ruined EVERYTHING, and thus made it a bad game. If I were to judge a game based on its ending, 90% of the games on the market would be considered underwhelming or complete garbage.

By all accounts, the original endi... #1.1.3

It disappoints me that survival horror has taken a backseat for gamers this generation. They just don't make them as much, or as good any more. I honestly believe there are few gaming thrills or memories better than being frightened by something within a genre classic. I'm sure everyone has been surprised or scared in a game before and remembered the moment in great detail.

As for Dead Space 3? Well, I feel like I saw this happening from Dead Space 2. I'm probably... #5

I quite enjoyed Vatra's take on the Silent Hill series with Downpour. It's a pity that the game is so crippled by bugs. I feel like I've been waiting an age after they announced the patch. #1

I was pretty much coming here to say the exact same thing. The shooting mechanics are perfect. Everything else seems to be a mish-mash of new and dated game design. The game isn't at all bad, but it wasn't helped by a rushed ending and a bland story. #3.2.1

I do feel like CQ will take a backseat pretty soon as just a back-up inclusion in the series. They'll still have their big servers for them and Ziba Tower is crazy fun every time I think, but it just doesn't have all the things that make Battlefield special. #7

I've always thought the criticism levelled towards Jim was understandable, but undeserved. The guy has taste, is extremely intelligent, and doesn't pretend to love every AAA title that floods the market. In this interview alone he mentions Commander Keen, Final Fantasy X, MGS 3, Modern Warfare 3 and E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy. It doesn't just provide his honest preferences, but the breadth of his interests. He isn't held down by the expectations of an unforgiving community and r... #3

EA's myspace/facebook analogy is absolutely baffling. To compare Steam to myspace? Insulting on every conceivable level. #13

This is true. Ebert is undeniably a great critic of film, but when it comes to gaming and interactive entertainment, the guy is way out of his depth. #3.1.1

It's not like that at all dude. A lot of people derive satisfaction when they upgrade their PC's because it allows them to tinker and try different things with different games. The people that buy these cards are enthusiasts and don't just use it for visual fidelity. It's like being excited about new cars and comparing the best of the best, except PC gaming doesn't have so much "dick swinging" so-to-speak.

It's hard to describe honestly. I... #5.1

Yep. The fixed-cam, for better of for worse, remains that way so they maintain something in the vicinity of 40-60fps. If you were to move the camera around, you'd probably see a whole lot of gaming dead space. Not sure if this will hinder the multiplayer, I can't say I'm remotely interested in that aspect either way, time will tell I guess. #1.1.2
