Planning a day one purchase this Thursday when it sees release! Upgrading from an ATI HD5850 will be a welcome change--that much is certain. #4

I can definitely see the comparison, just in terms of how the enemies "spawn," and in the desolate feeling the surrounding world conveys. Beyond that I don't see much else. The combat definitely seems much more simplistic than Demon's Souls/Dark Souls--I.E. Zelda.

Still, it looks interesting. The fact that your only option as a character is to play as a mouse, is a slight turn off. I guess I've just gotten spoiled with deeper RPGs, especially Dark Souls,... #2.2

But what about the Game Gear versions? I'm STILL waiting for Konami to release those! Nothing tops those. NOTHING. #4.1

Holy jeez...We get it!! The MGS games are awesome, but seriously--how many more MGS collections do we need?! Konami sure knows how to milk the f'ing S**T out of this franchise! #6

One of my all time nail-biting/memorable moments in a game ever: Being stalked/chased by the corpulent, chainsaw-wielding, swine-headed mental mass murderer known only as, Piggsy, throughout the dingy rooms and rafters of Starkweather's attic! Holy hell...I nearly pooped my pants several times during that portion of the game!

Yeeeaaaahhhh, now I may have to go back and play through it all over again... Damnit, now look what you guys have done to me! ;) #10

Kojima--the guy who has gone on the stump more times than I care to count in the last 9 years of this generation to proclaim that Metal Gear Solid games can not and will not run well enough on ANY other platform but Sony's PS3--is now saying he would prefer to not be limited to one platform any longer. I have to say, I respect the man immensely, but you've gotta admit that it's funny how mindsets can changed so drastically with each new generation. #33

My top favorites: (hopefully I'm not forgetting any)

1. Mickey Mania
2. Sonic 2
3. World of Illusion: Mickey and Donald's Adventure
4. Shadowrun
5. Flashback: The Quest for Identity
6. Earthworm Jim

Toe Jame & Earl: Panic On Funkotron, Jurassic Park, General Chaos, Kid Chameleon, and some others that I'm probably blanking on right now would also be in my top favorites. Although, it's VERY difficult t... #7

I would also like to mention Castle of Illusion and World of Illusions. Both were fantastically unique Disney games with which I attribute lots of fond memories having played over and over again as a child. Also, I remember Quack Shot being really great too, but then again, I have not gone back to play it in over 20 years, and I'm not sure I'd want to for fear of ruining what I remember of it.

And on another note--where in the F*#$% is General Chaos on this list?! Una... #1.5

After Deus Ex: HR, I put my total faith into Eidos Montreal. If anyone can pull off another reboot of this magnitude, it's them. #6

I played it last year with a hard copy, downloaded the updates and it ran flawlessly on W7 X64. #6.3

I agree. Nintendo needs to give Mario and Pokemon a much, MUCH needed rest. Whatever happened to an Earthbound sequel? Or like someone else mentioned above in the comments, Eternal Darkness II? Yes, it was developed by Crystal Dynamics, but published by Nintendo and the fact that they haven't made that sequel, in particular, a priority at all is an absolute travesty. #4.1.1

Uh huh, keep tellin' yourself that. That's exactly what they said about the Guitar Hero craze, and look where that ended--dead and buried after Activision ran it 50 feet into the ground. Two VERY different franchises, but still relevant. #3.1.1

Never having played a Sherlock Holmes game before, this article has certainly peeked my interest. Graphically, it looks beautiful as well--almost has an Alan Wake-style to it. Let's just hope it's not anything like the laborious L.A.Noire. I wanted to like that game SO much, but it just kept letting me down at every turn, and instead became an exercise of tedious trial and error. #1

They just could NOT pry their thin, dead hands from their cold mouths to utter those words until now. Newsflash: When it takes THIS long to apologize for something SO obviously bollocksed, it's already apparent that it's insincere. And still, no word on what choices people will have regarding their "free game." #1.5

Seriously, I'm not trolling when I ask this question, but...do you think consoles are heading towards irrelevance? When you consider the rising costs to obtain one--somewhere between $500-600 potentially--one could purchase a fairly decent and very capable PC rig for just slightly more quid, and you'd have access to hardware and software mods to extend the life of your PC and your most beloved games, respectively (which you currently cannot do with a console). Granted, there are stigm... #8

Ubisoft certainly needs to take a page from Take-Two. I have enjoyed the Ass. Creed games immensely, but after 3, it's feeling really tired and worn out. It's literally been the same formula from the beginning of the series with incremental improvements throughout each iteration. When a publisher makes the choice to perpetually release a new iteration in a franchise year after year, ultimately all it serves to do aside from the initial spike in profits is suffocate the brand, and caus... #12

That dude should just go and rip the game off from some torrent. Seems sad that one would have to resort to such measures for a game that one PAID FOR, but if that allows him the ability to actually play his now $60 paperweight of a game, I would condone it.

BUT yes, ultimately you should vote with your wallets and show EA that we're sick of the deceit, quick money-making schemes and their blatant bully tactics, like in this case. #31

Yes, I agree Enate, and I should clarify that when I said that they have a duty first and foremost to steward the industry, I meant that in the broadest sense--which includes a dedication to gamers. After all, the industry became popular and successful BECAUSE of gamers, and that is something that EA needs to realize instead of seeing its consumers only as individual money-making schemes. It's a toxic and downright detrimental way to view consumers, and as always, it alienates them from t... #6

Medal of Honor: Warfighter & Dead Space 3 were just the tip of the iceberg ahead of EA, and they have A LOT to adjust in a short amount of time if they hope to win back a large swath of consumers. They are now in the 11th hour of launch for Sim City 5 (which also happens to be one of the most successful franchises of all time), and they have received loads of backlash about the game's use of always-online DRM and its dependence of micro-transactions--which could potentially spell the... #5
