i hope its better than the 360,witch im very dissapointed with.

TheMART6533d ago

So when did you bought your 360, how much have you played it, do you have Live, which games do you own

last but not least: are you not a Sony Fanboy without a console up till now.

Love to read your answers.
Because the 360 kicks ass. I am curious when someone thinks it's not like that. The reasons why because they can be too diverse to claim it that way

TheMART6533d ago

Anyhow, I hope they don't name it the Xboy. That sounds real g@y, they should bundle it then with the g@ystation...

i bought my 360 in december 2nd. then a month later i got the dreaded red light,so i sent it back to microsoft and got another one.ive bought most of the games that have come out,like pgr3 call of duty2 condemed.then oblivion table tennis,fifa world cup exct.i just dont thing they are what i call next gen.i think i got games for my pc which are a year old which look better.i got xbox live since its been launch.but i never play that anymore.most of my mates bought the 360 at launch,but they sold it on ebay after a couple of months,saying its not that good,and they rather play there pc,s.no im not a fanboy neither.

Aflac6533d ago

there are games coing up with 99.9% lifelike graphics. 360 is perfectly capable of that, the developers just need time to master its power with the right graphics engine

If you don't like yours that is fine... I never really liked my PS2... but I loved my N64 and Dreamcast and Super Nintendo, but hated my Genesis... it just depends on the person.

Schmitty076533d ago

I don't want another useless handheld after the PSP letdown. Because if Ms makes one, I won't be able to ignore it

Nearly Half Of Gamers Play Video Games To "Express Themselves," Study Finds

Many players find it easier to express themselves while playing games. Yet, over half of the surveyed gamers still play to relieve stress.

I wonder what place made this study, and it's Fandom, no wonder half of the people said that, I find it hilarious that Fandom of all places did manage to pull more than 50% for the argument of playing games for self expression

Honestly i don't believe this statistic. All we need is an executive to believe it and they'll focus more on how to "express" ourselves over good gameplay and further ruin gaming.

FinalFantasyFanatic14h ago

I actually just play to relax/have fun, get immersed in another world for a while and enjoy the story/characters, who the hell plays to "express themselves"? I can understand how that applies to say Minecraft, where you're actually making things, but I don't think you can apply this to most games.

It's an outstanding game and so was The Old Blood. Also a lost era of gaming. Interesting, I received a physical copy of The Old Blood 9 years ago today from Poland. It was digital only in North America initially upon release so I had to import.

Wolfenstein: The New Order - A Highly Rated FPS That Hasn't Stood the Test of Time

Wolfenstein: The New Order launched 10 years ago today, but can it stand up to the modern FPS titles it inspired?

Seth_hun20h ago

I disagree. Its still a fantastic game, with very good gunplay and a surprisingly loveable cast of characters and a good story trough many different and interesting setpieces

hiawa2317h ago(Edited 17h ago)

All The New Order needs for my tastes is a this gen enhancement patch.

ChasterMies16h ago

I played New Order a couple of years after launch and I give it an 8/10. The shooter holds up because it is focused on being a good shooter. There is no crafting, no RPG elements, no open world find the question mark Weapons are fun. Enemies are fun. Levels offer a nice mix of stealth and shooting. You get to be the predator; this isn’t a game about fending off waves of enemies while a robot companion unlocks a door. Most importantly, New Order is the last of a dying breed of single player shooters.

Singleplayer shooters are still getting released every year, just look up "boomer shooters" and you'll find an an abundance of them. AAA fps campaigns, not so much.

Last year had Trepang2, RoboCop: Rogue City, Turbo Overkill, Warhammer 40,000: Boltgun, Dread Templar, Sprawl and more

DustMan11h ago

The games you mentioned are not from AAA developers. Wolfenstein likely had a budget that was probably as big as all those games you mentioned combined. I'm not knocking the new wave of retro shooters. I absolutely love them (I think some get much higher review scores than they deserve though). I just really wouldn't describe Wolfenstein as purely a boomer shooter based on the relatively cohesive story, with cut scenes and is fully voice acted. Full set piece moments.

AA development seems to be focused keeping the single player solo experience alive. But the big developers are only concerned about the MTX and milking players who enjoy multiplayer.

ChasterMies3h ago(Edited 3h ago)

The age of AA shooters. I’m not saying it’s a bad thing. I like less expense, shorter games.

Weird all the Wolfenstein articles.

Can you guess what will be announced at Xbox showcase?

DefenderOfDoom215h ago
