Great Cagcast as always. I completely agree with CheapyD on the whole Mass Effect “controversy”, it’s sad when a “news station” can make up their own story and use “experts” that have never played or even heard of the game until the day of the show.

I really dont see what the big deal is with this video, maybe its just me but what they said didnt seem that bad...maybe my expectations were to high from hearing wombat and cheapy talk about it on the cagcast?

"I can’t believe I’m going to admit this, but I have to agree that the Sonic RPG is my most anticipated DS game in 2008. I have yet to play a disappointing Bioware game, and I don’t see that changing anytime soon. I’m not a huge Sonic fan, but with Bioware behind it, I’m sure this will be one of the best RPGs on the DS. "

I used to do PC gaming, but it’s a cost thing. As ParksCo2 said, keeping current with graphics cards alone costs a mint, and then when you need to do a complete upgrade to get the latest and greatest bus speeds, drive interfaces, etc, you’re looking at $2k investment.
Or, you can spend $400-500 on a current gen console and be done with it for a few years.

Having more consoles on the VC is both exciting and disconcerning. It’s exciting for obvious reasons; more games.
However, with the Wii’s memory kinda.. feh.. You really can hold just oh so much before you *HAVE* to delete or store the game(s) you no longer play. Pretty lame :(
This game looks fun, too. I never had a Master System so this is good news for me.
Feel better. I am also sick and dying at home too :( :(

It totally broke my heart after seeing how well the CG was done back then and knowing it's now been tossed into the flame. Curse you EA!! urrg.. then again, EA did give me Burnout Paradise last week. Arrrrgg.. can't they at least build the Marvel game by using the same city and sell it for $20 or something!? I know I'd buy it! urggggggggggg....

Prof. Layon and the Curious Village is my most anticipated… haven’t played an adventure game since hotel dusk, I think the time has come.

EA hates comic book fans, or am I just over-reacting
I don't know...I still see Marvel:UA as more of a fluke: a good comics game. Maybe canceling it isn't too bad of an idea. Trailer looked cool, though...
And God! Atlantis Attacks? Wash that down with some Evolutionary War (and that crossed over into Alf!) and it'd be hard to make a game worse than that.

Here's what I posted on the PC Games Going Extinct post:
I think a lot of the problem with PC games is that they require such beefy machines to play and thus are aimed at a very narrow market. Games like Crysis and UT3 sold poorly (by console game standards at least) because those with the rigs to play them are few and far between.

I can see this to an extent. A lot of people are tired of upgrading their video cards to play the newest games with adequate FPS.
But then you look at a game like WoW, and see that its subs have just reached over 10 million, and you think the PC gamer pop. isn’t dying anytime soon.

PC gaming forever!

As many have already pointed out correctly, I think PC gamers have shift their focus to MMO look at the success of WoW. Also the problem of privacy definitely have something to do with poor sale of non-subscription based PC games.
Privacy is also a problem with console but your average consumer is much less technically advance than your average PC users. However, if console privacy can be easily done, console games sale will suffer also. Just look at the disparity of PSP systems vs. games sale numbers.

To be honest aside from XML/M:UA has there been any game to even come close to the greatness that was the comic game masterpiece of Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction.
Not everyone needs to look like a 16 year old girl cosplaying a 16 year old boy, every-Japanese-artist-ever.

What Marvel really needs to do is get this game franchise back into the hands of a fighting game developer. I’m sure most of us would love a return to Capcom, but even someone like Namco-Bandai would be a big step in the right direction.

I think part of the problem is that years ago the PC platform was vastly superior(in terms of raw power) to the consoles but this is not really the case anymore.
I also think that a lot of people such as myself are tired of sitting at the computer all day long and so when relaxing they want to play on the couch with a nice TV.

"I really, really like this game. It's super hard, but I've already spent over 8 hours on this game, which very much justifies the $8!"
