So I have this revolutionary idea...

According to some idiot in Sony PR (there seems to be a lot of those in there): "LBP would sell more if other games didn't exist".
The gaming industry manages to suprise me everyday, is incredible, and is not because all of those hyped games were perfect 10/10.

Lets take a look at all the games releases this year so far... is this the movie business? I dont think so, people dont just "play" more games over the weekends as they tend to go more to the cinema over the end of the week. Playing a game is like watching TV or having another hobby that you do when you arrive after a day out there looking for a job, is not something that you just do in November or December after getting drunk on those end years parties.

Doesnt the developers and the publishers know this allready? Dont they know that the base they sell to is going to buy a game anyway in March or December if the game is worth it? Most gamers are older than 20, so they dont believe in Santa anymore. If the kind of games you see on shelves on November-December were the Wii crap for family or kids then that would make sense. But thats not the case of a game like Gears Of War or Wrath of the Linch King, you can launch those in the middle of an atomic fallout and you will sell them anyway.

Triple A titles should come along the year, sales would be equally good if they are oriented at the hardcore audience that knows about games. Maybe you can make the argument that some games just "need" to be realeased on November-December, but a bad game is bad game and a good game is great forever, that means until the end of the year and beyond.

So really Iam pissed, too many games to play, I dont have the time to enjoy them or the money to buy them all, right now Im in the L4D STEAM thingie and I wont get off until I get bored.

So Sony and great minds of the gaming industry, stop beign such a dickheads,

About Veltone of us since 11:54 PM on 05.31.2007

Iam a gammer from the harsh uruguayan jungle (we dont even have a jungle down here, too cold, go and do some wikipedia of Uruguay). I used to do a podcast in spanish about videogames at Radio LevelUp but I dont do it anymore... anyway those guys are there still making it so you can give it a try if you understand spanish
And i can say "�aca �aca �aca" and i know how to pronoaunce it well since im a spanish speaker, so Im a superior race.
A couple of idiots may find funny that I dont have good english grammar, but again, they are probably idiots since they only speak/write one language...

Most of my time in the internet is because of games. I love videogames so much that i sleep with my girlfriend and my ds, at the same time... i call that a "threesome" and my humor doesnt get anything better than that.
Mostly im a PC gamer, i was going to buy a 360 but faulty crappy hardware told me not to since if it goes RRoD here I would have lost my money, and as a man Im entitled to the sweat of my brow. I want to fuck the Wii and I believe the PS3 is going to be the first console in space.

In the "real" life (come on, internet now is part of our lives anyway...), I study medicine (takes a lot of time and I cant spend enough of my time playing videogames). Is not what you would call a marriage made in heaven, if I wanted to game more I should have sutdy something related to pc�s, but I grown surrounded by computers and stuff so I chose the bio stuff instead. Anyway, little time to play video games if you dont want my biographical shit.

And the main reasson I play games for the story behind them. I love well written stories like Half Life series, of course Portal (kind of a Valve fan). Other great games include World Of Warcraft (not currently playing, actually I was never hardcore, but I enjoyed the experience a lot), and of course the classics like System Shock 2. Other great titles had stuck with me over the years, classics adventure games like Monkey Island, Indiana Jones and Grim Fandango.

So, best game experiences:
Half Life 2 (and the original Half Life of course).
System Shock 2
Grim Fandango
Indiana Jones and the Fate Of Atlantis
Monkey Island
