"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. 2246d 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.

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.
To be fair, Code Veronica isn't the only RE game with ridiculous villains. I mean, RE4 HD is getting nothing but praise, and many of its villains were just as silly (Ramon Salazar anyone? Who at Capcom thought a wrinkled dwarf dressed in Renaissance clothing was scary?)
Simon Templeman is an incredible voice actor. It's such a shame he is so underrated.
@Ddouble: Ah, ok. I must have read the news article wrong. :(
Hell yes to Legacy of Kain!
