I don't know...If a game has an amazing story, I'd probably keep playing regardless of the gameplay. I've played some games that are pretty lousy in both the gameplay AND story department in the past though.

Yeah, that was my problem with Galaxy too. The worlds were quite small and it was a little too easy to complete most of them. It felt like (as Infernostew said) a bunch of mini-stages, as opposed to complete worlds.

I really wanted to enjoy Galaxy. It was my most anticipated Wii game before its release. But I was disappointed to discover it wasn't as big, sprawling and adventurous as Mario 64 or even Sunshine.

He's definitely right there. And it's not just American gamers that devs treat like this. But Western gamers in general.

Devs seem to think that Western gamers will automatically buy their games if they add guns or make a game more action-oriented. But there are so many different types of gamers with so many different interests (My favorite genre is survival-horror, so needless to say I've been disappointed with the "Westernization" of some of my favorite s...

Don't forget the overpriced HD "remakes". I only paid half-price for RE4 and Code Veronica, yet I still feel oddly ripped off. The reviews were right. All Capcom did was upscale both games to HD and hope nobody would notice the jagged edges and ugly textures. It's ESPECIALLY noticeable in Code Veronica where many of the FMVs are downright hideous (obviously because Capcom couldn't upscale the FMVs) so you end up with these horribly ugly, jagged, fuzzy and often blurry FM...

It's true that the MK backgrounds didn't do anything, but I don't know if I'd call them 'boring'. I know I lost a few too many matches being distracted by the people being lowered into acid, the monsters fighting each other in the distance, and the OMG! THAT GIANT DRAGON IS DESTROYING A BUILDING HOLY SHIIIIIT!!!

Aww, I always felt so bad for the penguin for losing her baby. :O

The series has always had time travel though. Blood Omen was the first game in the series (not Soul Reaver) and Kain travels through time in that game to kill both King William (who he mentions in SR2) and later Mobeus. That's why he became so obsessed with time travel in the later games. He screwed around with Nosgoth's history in the first game, and has been trying to fix it ever since.

OMG I would LOVE for Naughty Dog to start up the LoK series again!

Please please buy the rights to the series! Amy Hennig is an amazing writer and I think she (and the ND crew) are the only ones who could do the series justice. We don't want another Blood Omen 2 on our hands.

"dmc looks crap and dosen't even look like Devil May Cry, it looks like a new IP which is trying to be a clone of DMC. <Insert long rant already said 10 times on here before at why it will be crap>"

I can't help but wonder if the new DMC game originally started out a a new IP, but since Ninja Theory's last game didn't sell as well as expected, they instead got their hands on a pre-existing series with the hope that it might boost sales amongst ...

"Batman: Arkham City is not only the best superhero game ever made, it's one of the best games ever made full-stop. It takes the already superlative original and gloriously expands on it. It's a deeper game, more complex, more inventive, more mature. It brings the caped crusader's world to life better than any comic, movie or television show before it."

OMG I'm so excited. My anticipation for this title just doubled. :O

Ew. Personally, I hope they don't make it realistic or try to explain what characters like Reptile and Baraka are. I don't care about nay of that. I just want an over-the-top gory fighting movie.

Feel free to make a dark and gritty movie out of more realistic games. But part of what makes Mortal Kombat the series that it is is BECAUSE it's silly and unrealistic. Centaurs, demons, lightning gods, four-armed creatures, people fighting with guns in martial arts tourname...

Considering Elena is based off Emily Rose herself, a lot of what makes her a good character is because Emily's the one playing her.

If she was doing a crap job of it, the acting director would tell her to do it differently. It's not like the mo-cap actors have free reign to do whatever the hell they want.

I don't think anybody is on the man's "side" per se. But it's harder to sympathize with the kid when the situation could have easily been avoided if he just hadn't been a dick. It's like kicking an attack-dog, then complaining when it turns around and bites you. Or bad-mouthing someone in the street, then being surprised when they walk over and deck you.

The whole thing could have been avoided if the kid had kept his mouth shut and just played t...

"How old were you when you first saw an 18 rated movie, or played an 18 rated game? It's only a guideline for potential buyers on the content of the game. Until he starts showing symptoms of addiction or violence that can be directly linked to video games, why shouldn't she keep buying games for her child?"

It sounds like the mother's kid was insulting and harassing this guy, so I'm surprised the mom didn't just shut off the system and take the g...

Whether or not someone can "handle" bullying is irrelevant. I'm not saying what the man did was right. But he was obviously mentally unstable. He has a medical condition. So he isn't going to respond to things in the way "normal" people do.

It's up to the mother to teach her kid not to be a jackass and to treat others with respect. Too many parents ignore their kids' faults, and blame everyone else but themselves when things go wrong.

And if they DO end up simply upscaling and porting the DMC series to HD, they shouldn't charge people $20 ($30 in Australia's case) for it. Such simple HD ports shouldn't be over ten dollars.

"The teenager's mother, 33, said: 'It’s pathetic that a grown man would attack a defenceless child like this. If you can’t handle losing to a child then you shouldn’t be playing games.'"

Did the mother have anything to say about the fact that her 13 year old son was playing an 18+ game he obviously isn't mature enough to play because he spend his time harassing and verbally abusing people online??

I don't condone what the man did...

You're seriously insulting all mentally ill people? For having genuine medical problems they can't help? Just because ONE guy happened to attack a kid?

What the man did was obviously wrong, but if he isn't in his right mind then of course he is going to respond to things differently than the average person. He obviously needs medical help. It's just good he got it before he seriously hurt/killed someone.

Also mentally ill =/= stupid.

Please bring Christopher Lambert back :D

...and Robin Shou. If only because he needs more acting roles.
