@Wiggles: Ehh, I tend to agree.

The old games were better. This isn't nostalgia or anything. They really WERE better.

That's not to say there aren't any good games these days (TimeSplitters, anyone?), but my god, I had infinitely more fun with video games back then than I do now.

Micro Machines 2: Turbo Tournament, Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee, Balls of Steel Pinball and Battlezone. Those were my childhood.

EDIT: Plus, the music was better, too.

The last Timesplitters was 7 years ago.

This is wrong.

@Games: This is where pleasing a smaller market comes in handy. Little did those game developers know as they dreamed of millions of players playing their games that they were in the golden era, where there simply wasn't enough interest generally to encourage heavy investment in games companies.
Especially after 1983. Now practically every company other than Valve are publicly traded, and most of their shareholders are over 40 venture capitalist fellows who couldn't give 2 shits if every other game looks like Modern Warfare (This is starting to sound Escapistian) as long as it brings in a profit. Every industry undergoes this change at some point but it's most noticeable in the creative industries (After all, who notices really if the next iteration of a hoover is dumbed down?), and especially gaming, because it's probably the newest and most exciting creative industry we have at the moment. All the innovation that happened at a furious rate during the 90's has almost completely run out.

In general gamers now have higher standards and are less willing to allow minor problems slide. As such it's easier for developers to fuck up and go bust and harder to go back to older games and enjoy them.

Can you imagine the outcry if Contra was released today? (Too hard and no diagonal shooting?)

A major television show has a segment devoted to talking about videogames and it's current, up to date and not annoyingly self conscious? My god.

Incidentally, they're all high on meth.

I'm sure, they said the 4th season was a rollercoaster ride. We can only watch it when the whole family is together so we go slow.

Killing floor is better than I remember. Also the husk fireball launcher is such a god tier addition to the Firebug perk, fucking glad they added it.

I'm finally getting the hang of the new medic weapon. So much better than the old one, even if it's still not up to scratch with the other weapons.

I think I'm finally getting tired of it. Every game is really routine.
Maybe just need to play more HoE. Or try more custom servers.

That programme would only work with you family ahah

I would send you the 32bit game/parody recreation of all the seasons but it would spoil.

Tell us when you run out of episodes then man!

The Killing Floor community has changed from how I remember it. People work together and seem bothered about winning. Haven't joined a bad game yet.

Mercenaries is still as fun as ever, but there's always one thing that really irked me about it. Just a summary of the game: fictional war between North and South korea after some general launches a coup of the government and declares war on the south. A big part of the game are the factions and the deck of 52.

The deck of 52 is one of those awesome things I love about the game, card deck of 52 bounties, each person gets a card and a little blurb about them telling you why they're bad guys (say, a drug smuggler who supplies 22% of the heroin in south east asia) each quarter segment of the game ends with you taking down an Ace.

However, to get to the aces, you have to complete missions for the various factions to unlock the location of the low-level cards (2-10s) and missions for the face cards. The factions are the Allied Nations (UN) who are just there to give you missions killing north koreans, the three other factions are South Korea, China and the Russian mob, who all have you killing members of other factions as well as the North Koreans. Now this could be used for interesting replay value, allying with the Mob in one game, South Korea in another etc, for a variety of different missions and endings in each playthrough.

But nope, you constantly have to play the three factions if you want to get to those aces, constantly having to worry about completing missions and not having to piss off the faction you currently have to fuck over.

Ok after about the 20th time of seeing the fucking Advert for it.

I think it means "Part 2" Joe. Most Final Fantasy games have completely different characters in each and it seems the developers are not finished with the protagonists of XIII and want to continue their story - but can only do it by a naming it "part 2"

-------

Contemplating buyer another Xbox Original. My original Original died years ago and buying a new one means I could play stuff like all the Timesplitters, Vice City and all the Hitman games again.
