GC: Rumbling SixAxis announcement tonight?

CVG has heard whispers from the Leipzig Games Convention show floor that Sony plans to speak about a rumble-enabled SixAxis during its press conference a 5pm (GMT) today.

It's been strongly rumoured today that the new rumbling SixAxis is near-enough ready for release, and will be compatible with Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, which is out in Japan in October, suggesting shaking pads could go on sale before Christmas.

I would hate to play MGS4, KZ2, and GT5 without rumble. I loved Resistance, but it felt like something was missing, and that was rumble. If Sony can get the new controllers out for 50 dollars, or have some replacement plan for the old ones, then I will be a VERY happy camper. =P

Don't get your hopes up on some sort of replacement plan... lol I personally am not missing rumble all that much, it's sometimes... distracting almost. But some games it's certainly an improvement!

I've found rumble to be a distraction at times myself. However, I've also found it to be a plus in others. This goes for the motion sensing too though. I like it in resistance, motorstorm and warhawk. Having a controller that can do both would be nice. I like rumble in sports and racing games.

Far Cry Has Become A Shadow Of Its Former Self

Following a series of repetitive games, a formulaic approach, and a disappointing last entry, the Far Cry series has been run into the ground.

The trouble with most criticisms of this franchise is that they insist Far Cry 3 was the best game, but the things they claim to hate about the franchise are all the elements that 3 introduced.

Couldn't agree with you more! I've always thought that, my personal favourite is two, the whole atmosphere, mystery, adrenaline, my vehicle steaming up because I've crashed too many times trying to escape and then getting in a shootout, having to pull a bullet out my arm while fire rages and bullets fly, can't beat it

JEECE1d 11h ago

Yep, 2 is my favorite by far as well, and one of my favorite singleplayer games of all time. It was probably one of the last games Ubisoft made before they started homogenizing their franchises to be open world collect-a-thons with unnecessary RPG mechanics tacked on. I enjoyed 3 for what it was, but it was clearly an attempt to make the franchise appeal to a mass audience (which, in fairness, was successful).

That's not the issue. If Far Cry 3 never existed and they just made another 5 or 6 games that were increasingly generic copies of Far Cry 2 instead, would that make FC2 the real problem?

No. It's the lack of creativity and effort that followed that's the real issue.

And there are things that are genuinely different about FC3. Simple example - the story was easily the best. Best main villain by far too but it also has strong themes and wasn't afraid to explore controversial topics. The sequels are much blander.

Comparing the fun and creativity of Blood Dragon to the DLC in the sequels ... also says a lot about how Ubisoft fell off.
