"HAHA, Public enemy of butthurt fannies. "


Gamecube was a console for the "hardcore" as you can see that the power was comparable to the other systems at the time. It was also the console were they put in the most risks. Super Mario Sunshine was a risk. Metroid Prime was a risk. Windwaker was a risk. I recall back in the good ol' days when people were dead set against a cel-shaded Zelda or a first person Metroid game; only for those games to become classics in their own right. They also didn't follow the online route... #2.2.4

Ubisoft's actions have been irrational of late. Here's some quotes.

"We want social, we want all the things that exist on PC to be possible on a console. We want the mobile capacities to play short-term and to play from anywhere you want."


"Actually you need both, because, in our world. the fact that you can be immersed in new worlds with NPCs who can be emotional will help you to get into those worlds and be im... #4

Have a bubble. You're totally correct that the news has more influence on glamorizing these type of events than video games do. #2.1

I think some people/sites are re-evaluating their own internal rules after the Aliensgate scandal. Nobody won out of that mess. #1.1

There will be a lot of pain. Games are no longer recession-proof. Sales numbers are down and the triple AAA games aren't making bank. Only the established franchises are and the rest of them are bleeding to death.

The signs are everywhere. When you see heads of industry turning tail and running away; you know something is up.

Cliff is gone. The two Bioware doctors Doctors Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk are gone. Miyamoto has stepped down from head of game d... #9.1.3

Watch Dogs has been in development for a little while now and it looks like gameplay footage. However, I will remain obstinate on the face of it until I see it on shelves or I know someone that has played it.

Can you trust the developers to provide a game that is indicative of the quality that has been presented? Can you trust the media whom the publishers have gagged with NDAs and review embargoes? Can you trust your fellow gamers to give a non-biased view on the game?

"3. The controller isn’t wildly different

Is it unreasonable to expect a new controller shape, like a ball or a mug? What happened to being inventive? This isn’t the Sony I know."

I'm sure it's a joke article parodying various other articles that make absurd reasons of why they aren't excited about the PS4 or disappointed or whatever. It's not that bad. I just wish that he/she elaborated more on the reasons and make it really absurd. #2

I'm slightly paranoid about that. Can you blame me? It's like people have completely forgot about Aliengate. I don't want to be Gearboxed.

@Bumpmapping The Witness showed the world. It looks great but no actions done by the avatar. It showed a couple of puzzles and how they move but I didn't see a character moving or anything of that sort. I'm sure the Witness will release more when time goes on but until then; I will remain on the fence. Deep Down was an... #3.1.2

Show some real game footage. No cutscenes or any of that. Just in-game footage. I saw none except for the Knack demonstration on the PS Vita. #3

I have to admit that I enjoy Quantic Dreams' output. However, I don't agree about his view on technology being the only way of expressing emotion.

He uses cinema as an example to show that with the advent of technology; films became better because it had colour, voice acting, sound, HD formats etc. That's not necessarily true. I can think of a number of black and white films for instance that curb-stomps a lot of modern films these days.

The problem here is that the industry hasn't adapted because they've become too fat and obese to adapt to change. Don't take it from me. The numbers are all there to search out. All the big 3 have posted losses recently. Epic for instance had recently shutdown a newly-founded studio called Impossible Studios that were mostly made up of ex-Big Huge Games developers after six months. The studio behind Epic Mickey has closed down. Prospective developers who are hoping to get their id... #9.1.1

It's not so clear cut. For every boom, there's an inevitable glut of product, the market goes slack, demand lowers on the face of similar product and the bubble pops.

Remember the music fad in the early 2000s? That bubble burst, but the entire industry wasn't following that particular fad. They've jumped on the multi-player shooter fad and no-one is making money from it except COD or Halo. When that bubble bursts, it's going to drag everybody else along w... #8.1

The game industry crash is already here. Check out the various developers that currently reside in corporate landfills. Here's a list.

Expect more to be put on the wall of death. #9

That's the thing man. The gaming consumer has changed. The casuals have migrated to smartphones and tablets while the core users have become increasingly disillusioned by the stale re-run games that seem to appear year-in, year-out and have moved over to PC. Even the PS4 has basically become a PC, as will the latest Microsoft console in order to grab back some of that audience.

Eventually, we'll just have cloud boxes with different sets of exclusives but with margina... #18.1

We'll wait and see. On the current networks that most people are on; cloud gaming doesn't seem to be an option. Sony/Gaikai said themselves that they would need to make the fastest, global network that's ever been created. Whether or not they are up to the task, we will find out soon enough. It's best to not take things at face value. You may end up disappointed. #10.2

The Gamecube in my opinion is probably the most underrated console of the sixth generation. #5.1
