"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. 2125d ago 1 agree1 disagreeView comment
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.
'She later told police that: "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."'

Please bring Christopher Lambert back :D ...and Robin Shou. If only because he needs more acting roles.
To be fair, the problem wasn't so much that the song wasn't in Japanese, but that they didn't just do an English version of the song. I mean, Eyes on Me (FFVIII) and Melodies of Life (FFIX) were in English and they were both beautiful songs that fans love. So why ould Square think fans would prefer to hear a mainstream pop song in an FF game? Just translating the already-exsiting theme song would have been enough.
I think people are just happy to see a relatively normal looking girl who knows a lot about games and doesn't resort to pointless sex appeal to get people interested in her.
Damn, Castlevania has some pretty concept art. :O
I didn't actually realize there were two artists for the MGS series, though now that it has been pointed out it seems obvious. :O I love Ashley Wood's artwork, but I prefer Yoji Shinikawa's artwork. Yoji's just seems to have more detail and...flow: http://thejadednetwork.com/...
At this point, I'd just be happy with a new trailer or gameplay video. :O
I wonder if reviewers are going to give this game low scores for being "outdated" just like they did with Code Veronica. It's funny how reviewers seem to pick and choose which games to pick-on.
I agree. So many reviews are saying Code Veronica is outdated (especially in comparison to RE4), but it's like "No shit! It's a game that came out over ten years ago!"
Great game. They should release the whole LoK series in a HD collection.
To be fair, it wasn't Leona Lewis' voice that was the problem. She's a decent enough singer. But 'My Hands' just didn't fit with FFXIII's theme and seemed to exist for the sole reason of appealing to the mainstream audience. If she had been given a song that was written for FFXIII, I think she could have done an amazing job of it.
