234w ago - America's Army 3 is supposed to be the best realistic Army simulation for gamers... and potentially a recruitment tool. Just a few days after it's launch the game was bombarded by fans.
Just when you thought there could not be any more bad news than the developers getting fired on the release date, server problems and fan complaints are flooding through America's Army forums.
To quote: A lot of fans cannot link their America's Army 2 account with the new one, so they are forced to create a brand new account and go through all the training again.
However the problem did not stop there. When players finish their training, there is no way to save their progress on the server. Players just have to keep doing the same boring training again and again, hoping the server will register their progress.
Server problems aside, there are more problems with the fans. The fans were promised amazing graphics built on the Unreal 3 engine but were disappointed when getting what is shown in the picture below.
There is already a online petition to change the texture, but we all know that online petitions means nothing to the developers... especially when the developers got fired already.
234w ago - SCEA Product Marketing Manager Anthony Caiazzo asked for people to help spread the word, so here it is- to quote:
After a successful E3 and God of War III's March 2010 release date announcement we have given Kratos a new place to show off all his carnage and destruction.
Today, we relaunched the God of War III website with an all new look, screens and video section, community forums and much more. For you die-hard fans we have the God of War III Press Conference Video available, as well as more DOWNLOADS!
Spread the word! Chaos is coming to Gods in March 2010 and visit www.godofwar.com.
You might also want to check out the merchandise section, which will be updated throughout road to launch... And for those who feel worthy to fight alongside Kratos, you can enlist in the Spartan Army, where you will have opportunities in the future to get access to exclusive updates and other cool content.
236w ago - It's pretty clear that a lot of Left 4 Dead fans are very upset about Valve's surprise reveal during E3 2009 about Left 4 Dead 2.
The game's new official message boards are full of comments saying basically, "Valve's releasing a sequel too quickly for us; this should be a free content update for the original game."
To quote: As Valve's Doug Lombardi told us during our play time with a build of the game this past week, "This is something new for us." By "new" he meant that this time Valve is not waiting for years to release a commercial follow-up to one of their major games. (Half-Life 2: Episode 3, hello?)
Many fans are not happy because they feel the original game (still a top 10 best selling PC game in retail stores months after release) will be forgotten now with Left 4 Dead 2's announcement.
Again, Lombardi assured us at E3 that is not the case, promising that the first game will still be getting updates and new content (although exactly what they have planned is still a mystery). Lombardi also told Rock Paper Shotgun that any maps made for Left 4 Dead's SDK will work for Left 4 Dead 2.
Finally there's the fact that Valve has made purchasing Left 4 Dead pretty easy since its October...
238w ago - Advent Children Complete, the original film, clocked in around an hour and a half... and now Square Enix crammed in nearly another half hour worth of fights, beckstory, and explanations.
To quote: The film had a message for its fans, one that makes the film worth watching.
Final Fantasy VII has been with us for 13 years, four games, several soundtracks, and thousands upon thousands of cosplayers. Innumerable pages of fanfiction and doujinshi have been written, ranging from jaw-dropping art to plots that induce self-mutilation. And it still continues. Just like the people of Midgar.
Even after the near-cataclysmic events of the game, two years later the people of Midgar are back to their daily lives, falling into the same old cycles, and perpetuating life as it used to be.
But their past actions have paralyzed them, focusing their energy towards curing Geostigma, a mysterious affliction that is spreading like leprosy amongst the people, and as a result, the rest of the city remains largely ignored. Construction is at a crawl as Shinra tries to cure the plague - something that they are at fault for, and ultimately to save their own butt, as the president is infected.
Cloud, too, is paralyzed by the past. Not only is he infected with the Geostigma, which gives him flashbacks...
238w ago - Previously it was rumored that the second secret title which Capcom will unveil at E3 2009 would be none other than Devil May Cry 5.
Since then, Capcom was contacted asking for their word on this rumor, and have replied as follows:
Capcom immediately replied saying, "It's a title fans have been waiting for, everyone will have to wait until E3 to find out what the secret title exactly is, but we can tell it is definitely not Devil May Cry 5."
There you have it, it's not Devil May Cry 5 but Capcom stating that 'It's what fans have been waiting for' certainly excites us and after giving it some thought we came up with 1 title that hasn't been announced yet and has a lot of fans waiting Onimusha 5.
