Controller-Throwing Moments: Are Games Getting Too Difficult?

200°
309w ago - Have you ever played a game and got to a point that just frustrates the heck out of you and no matter how many times you try you just can't complete a task/perform a jump/find a switch?

That's the point that I'm tempted to toss the controller across the room.

That point hit me while playing Mirror's Edge the other day, the parkour-inspired game where you're a futuristic courier on the run who must bounce, jump, swing and wall-run from the pursuing police. All had been going well until I came to a section where I had to wall-run, jump then turn and grab on to a bar. Do you think I could do it first go? If you answered no, you'd be right.

After about 15 minutes I was still trying to master the move, but generally ended up on my back on the floor below or missing the wall run completely and just dropped to the floor below me.

I think that was when I tossed the controller on to the couch - gently, mind you, as I'm too tight to buy a new one - muttered a couple of choice expletives and turned the game off. I came back to it later that night after I'd cooled down, where I managed to complete the maneuver and move on.

Sometimes leaving something, cooling down, then returning to it can pay dividends, but sometimes I wonder whether game makers sometimes expect...
 

PlayStation Gamers Will be Disappointed by Sony Holiday Adverts

300°
309w ago - Believe it or not, whether you are a PlayStation gamer or not, you're going to be disappointed that Sony really doesn't have anything up their sleeve in terms of marketing their products... their odd ads are just plain out boring.

What's even worse is that they are releasing one TV Spot with the same theme every few days till the 21st when they are launching a "bigger campaign". I don't know about you guys, but the TV spots so far are not inspiring me yet.

The first one is known as the "Alley" and the second one known as "Office Park", and are part of the reflection campaign. Hopefully this "bigger campaign" will be more persuasive to the average consumer this holiday season.

Show us your killer titles, like Resistance 2, and LittleBigPlanet that you have been so excited for this year!








 

PSP Clone Plays NES Games on TV via PlayStation Controller Clone

200°
310w ago - A PSP clone known as the 2PG console comes with cartridges that allows you to play retro NES games. Moreover, the system has an A/V out and is supplied with a PlayStation clone controller in order to play the games on TV.

To quote: Sure, this portable gaming system might LOOK just a little bit like the Sony PSP, but don't expect it to play any games made in the last 15 years.

Another in a long line of cheap Chinese knock-off systems, the 2PG TC8281 handheld plays a mish-mash of questionable 8-bit and 16-bit retro games that come only on special multi-game cartridges.

The 2PG console comes with five built-in games, as well as an additional "112 in 1″ game cartridge, for a total of 117 games for under $50. Hundreds of additional games can be played if you know where to look for the proper cartridges. The system also has an AV out and comes with a cheezy-looking Playstation clone controller so you can play games on your TV.

If you're willing to take a gamble on one of these somewhat suspect systems, you can get your hands on one over at DealExtreme for $48.80 USD.
 

Rumor: Sony Signs Media Molecule to a 3 Game Contract?

50°
310w ago - Here's a little known fact: Despite producing one of Sony's most hyped titles of the year, LittleBigPlanet, Media Molecule actually has no affiliation with them outside of that.

The ex-Lionhead ragtag group of developers is a third party studio and could make titles for any system.

However, rumors are pouring in that Sony, enjoying the commercial and critical reception of MM's LittleBigPlanet, has just offered them an exclusive 3 game contract and the guys over at Media Molecule have graciously accepted.

Though its too early to expect to see anything substantial from them any time soon, expect some sort of announcement over the course of 2009.
