Planetside 2 is now off my play list. I've gone as far as uninstalling it. It may be a technical marvel but the gamplay is ultimately unsatisfying. No end game, no sense of satisfaction. Take a base, lose a base. It never ends. There's a reason my favourite mode in Battlefield is Rush I tend to...

That's more like it After the dull port forwarding issues of last night, John and I decided to give UT2004 another go this evening. We re-visited some classic maps, and kicked all kinds of low skill bot butts. We're bad arse like that It's wonderful how the names of maps comes back to you. Slow...

Planetside2 diary night 7

One week. I've averaged over an hour a night. My Planetside 2 relationship is now somewhat frayed. Turns out I miss the lack of direction more than I expected. With no End Game, it kind of seems pointless. You take control of a base after a monstrous firefight, and while pushing for the next, you...

That's not my picture, but it gives you a sense of the game. All those air vehicles, piloted by real people, loaded up transporters and with gunners in them. Three nights in and I'm still fighting in a "snowy area". I only know there are different areas due to screenshots like above All I see is...

There's been quite a bit of talk about Planetside 2. It's a massive, free to play online shooter. I've been enjoying the F2P PC recently, be it Jetpack Joyride on the Android platform on the mobile form, or Tribes Ascend on the PC. No money down, you grab the game and play. I ended up putting £30...

This is the latest instalment of the Prince of Persia series. There are enhancements in all areas of the game, however the game play remains the same as it predecessors. The events of this game take place a few days after the second game, The Warrior Within, ends. The story begins with the Prince...

Nintendo DS vs Sony PSP

Sun 18th Sep, 2005 by John
Well I have had a Nintendo DS since December 2004 and the PSP for less than a week so my opinion is likely to change over the coming weeks / months depending on the games I buy for each console.  The reason I bought a DS and not a PSP originally is that I have got a PS2 which I very rarely play...
