Not a chance mate. I've heard nothing whatsoever that tempts me to give money to Activision/IW for that product.
The decisions they made, and the way they communicated with their customers made it very easy to cancel my pre-order and use the money on something else.
I don't have one ounce of regret, there's plenty of great gaming out there without me having to fund things that I am opposed to.

The only slight temptation would be if they ever patched in dedicated server support (unlikely, in my opinion; as they would have very little to gain)......but even then I might pass if there are other options available......

Been listening to the podcasts and just heard this one today. A Wii game I have to recommend is Okami (which is where I derived my current avatar from).

It originally came out for the PS2, but was redone for the Wii and uses the wiimote very well (though sometimes it can be difficult to properly draw a slash with the brush and may take a few tries).

I love the art style of the game (imagine playing a Japanese watercolor painting) and I found the story and gameplay (3rd person action with some puzzle stuff) entertaining.

Edit: Just checked Episode 15's show notes and it doesn't say anything about Father's impression of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10. I'm eagerly awaiting the news because I've been debating on getting it myself.

Do they still offer copies of TWPGA10 with the enhanced motion sensor? I remember being tempted by that deal because buying the game with the sensor was a decent discount from buying a sensor separately.

So how do we get on this podcast? I like to think I can bring a TON of game industry know-how and experience to the show. Could be fun. As a long-standing TOG member, I'd love to be a part of this.

And JaKob, once you read my review (waiting for it to be posted here at TOG still) you'll have read plenty to give you enough reasons to buy MW2.

No I got the motion plus with Wii sports resort, didn't get one with TW regretfully.

You are welcome to join our cast, not sure if it will work for you timewise though?

PLAYLISTS.


Ashlann plays his first MMO...
Quote:
loves it...

addicted...

may not be at the next podcast...

a dear friend gifted him the game via Steam
Guild Wars Factions on Steam


You may think differently of your dear friend after your hygeine standards decline and you start living like a vampire because of an MMO addiction

I do want to give an MMO a run online but after I give the Torchlight demo a thorough testing as mentioned in Games Industry Podcast - Episode 12 chat. I may take your offer up with Guild Wars, it'll depend how basic of an MMO it is. I'll look further into this world when the time comes. From the reviews I've read on Torchlight, it's a basic MMO yet still engaing and fun. That's what I'll be looking for when I test-run an online MMO. I started a thread a while ago asking for opinions on this topic.. help a first time MMORPG player !!. I'll get back to you on this



===

Attorney General atkinson gets a mention again. Much has happened since this podcast and I'm late in replying to it. Ashlann said it's "absurd" what had been happening regarding this person. I agree but that doesn't mean we should take "absurd" things lightly. When I first heard that people were considering setting up a firewall for Australia to censor certain elements of the internet I thought that was "absurd" and it would never happen in a country like Australia... but now look... Internet censorship in Australia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Many people are disturbed by atkinson's actions and mental state. What disturbs me more than the person is the fact that someone like that can get to a position as important as Attorney General



===

The Graphics debate.


Stef mentioned the G4tv.com website. Thanks for that, I've added it to my favourites list!

Far Cry 2 gets a mention with it's great graphics. I was impressed by the mirage effect on the gun barrels after firing a few rounds when aiming down the site. It's those kinds of details that seperate this game's visual from many others.

In my opinion though, good graphics are important in a game but 'great graphics' are not. I still believe great audio adds more to a game's immersion factor.



===

During the Wii chat Ashlann was amazed that Stef has never owned a Mario game or never owned a Nintendo console... Stef isn't alone





Thanks again for another excellent Podcast

Well, I managed it! So, quite simple And you'll find it's pretty cheap with the release of Guild Wars 2 getting pretty close.
