Re: “Geek Out

Yeah, and Slueth, like I said, the new style is SO radically different that Madden is almost an entirely different game from NCAA. If you have any possible way to get Madden, I urge you to do so.

If I recommend that non football fans give Madden 11 a chance that essentially translates to "football fans, get out there and buy this fucking thing right now, even if it means you won't be able to eat for the next week!!!"

Re: “Geek Out

I went with the NCAA game as I normally do cause I'm more of a college fan but have always enjoyed the Madden series, just have a hard time dropping another 60 to have two football games. Wish EA had a bundle option for the two games. I'll prolly have to miss out on Madden again as Reach and New Vegas are taking priority over a second football game which is a shame because Madden always seems to have the new play style.

Re: “Geek Out

This years Portland Retro Gaming Expo is primed to be even bigger and better then last year. It's awesome that you're covering the show.

Not only will there be the retro and classic gaming goodness you've mentioned above, but the Commodore Computer Club and Users Group from Vancouver, WA – that's us :) – will be on hand with working Commodore 64's and Vic-20's showing off some amazing gameplay and also rocking a Commodore vendor table as well with lots of gaming fun.

See you at the 2010 PRGE!

Games aren't made anymore without the implication of a sequel.

Re: “Geek Out

I'm just glad they got rid of that dumb thing from SF3 where you'd sit back the first 20 seconds of a fight and throw kicks to build up your Ex meter, or whatever it was called. I guess it might be time to finally throw down and get an arcade stick for this.

Re: “Geek Out

You're probably right about this, though I'd guess that iPad will be largely irrelevant to the actual gaming community, just like the Wii.

Re: “The Write Stuff

And yet not a single person in the mainstream has any idea what Braid is. Your mom knows Mario, she does not know Braid.

Did you think I speak only to the stereotypical, basement dwelling geek hordes when I say things Matt?

Re: “The Write Stuff

Hardly anyone played Braid? It was the 2nd highest selling Live game of last year and according to Metacritic is the highest rated Live game available. Not to mention all of the end of year awards it garnered...

No Mac support!? George Lucas is raping my adulthood.

Posted by Marq Young on 07/16/2009 at 9:52 AM


Ack! No! But I see what you're saying. I'd blame it more on my attempt at avoiding anything that might be considered a spoiler and my apparently not being as appalled at the controls as all the other reviews I've seen.

Oh, plus, having a 330 word limit kinda ensures that all these game reviews are destined to be a bit short.

Posted by Earnest "Nex" Cavalli on 03/16/2009 at 1:43 AM


Nex, honestly... This revue felt very very short. Did you only play the demo?

Posted by Graham on 03/12/2009 at 12:45 AM

Re: “Geek Out

Ok, two things.

The AI is ridiculous. I'm playing this on "Very Easy" and I can't beat the dude with the Ying-Yang for a stomach. I am not this bad at video games. What's the deal here?

I'm playing on the PS3. When I try to play online matches, it won't find me anyone to play against. I put all my search settings at ANY. This is the day after the release date. There should be 500,000 people online who want to kick my ass.

Re: “Survival of the Fittest

My dream game is a mixture of GTA, Skate, and Bushido Blade, but in the meantime, I'll take my Skate 2. I was hooked on the first demo, the first game, and the second demo.

Thank god it's finally come out, even if I had to relinquish control for awhile to my wife's relentless quest for fertile seeds in Prince of Persia. The first few challenges past the demo challenges were pretty hectic, and I can already see that I'm going to have to step up my game to even beat Shingo at s.k.a.t.e. this time around. Sad. Also, EA's servers seem overwhelmed tonight, which is probably a good sign for the game, but I really want to try out the online multiplayer.

@Graham: You could always trade in some games to help pay for it, it will totally be worth it. (I also noticed that you never find the first Skate used, which is a testament to its awesomeness.)

Re: “Survival of the Fittest

Buy the game you cheap bastard! You'll be blown away with how much content it has in it. Think Grand Theft Auto IV style open world mission structure, but with at least 50% more stuff to do. Totally worth the $60.

Posted by Earnest "Nex" Cavalli on 01/22/2009 at 5:46 PM

Re: “Survival of the Fittest

I picked up the demo. I hated it the first time. Then I learned the controls.

Then I agreed with you. The game is really good. You should give me your review copy so that I can play the full game.
