    Not surprised Uncharted 2 got a few.

    That game looks so far off the fucking hook that I don’t think the hook can actually be found anymore.

    I didn’t pay too much attention to Uncharted 2 given that I’ve not played the first one. Perhaps I ought to go back and have a look.

    Best Racing Game Split/Second are you kidding?

    What was wrong with Split/Second?

    Well deserved result for Uncharted 2, Scribblenauts and Natal.

    Uncharted 2 looks phenomenal.

    fuck yes split/second!

    loki is probably a bitter 360 fanboy.

    I don’t have as much a problem with Split/Second as I do with DJ Hero. At least Split/Second was playable at E3.

    But Split/Second is on 360. :-D

    Split/Second winning anything seems totally stupid to me.

    Has anything seen anything from the game other than a 2 minute video!?

    #9 6 years ago
  10. Blerk

    It was playable on the show floor!

    Oh right…

    I was looking for gameplay a after E3, but couldn’t find any.

    I’ve just found some on GameTrailers, though…

    Looks alright!

    Can anyone tell me what the definable difference is between an “Action” game and an “Action/Adventure” game? I’m stumped.

    #12 6 years ago

    Action is basically FPS, Action/Adventure is a platformer like Tomb Raider.

    “fuck yes split/second!

    People are entitled to an opinion. If they dont like a game, they dont like a game, you shouldnt bash them for it.

    And besides, arent we all bitter 360 fanboys? Thats why we’re here, innit? :D

    Whoa, no God of War III? That’s a shame.

    #15 6 years ago
  16. Armitage

    @Lutz I thought that it might be something like that. They really should come up with better defined descriptions though. Yeah, I’m being too picky XD

    @Blerk

    You really should go and play Uncharted, it is a fantastic game imo and not too long so you could get through it pretty quickly.

    Can’t wait for 2… :)

    If I had a PS3 I most certainly would. But I don’t. If I ever get one, it’ll be one of my first purchases, I suspect.

    #18 6 years ago
  19. No_PUDding

    Just convince someone else to buy one xD

    But for god’s sake don’t play the demo, it’s an awful representation of the game.

    #19 6 years ago
  20. Blerk

    I only know one person with a PS3 and he doesn’t play this kind of stuff. It would potentially be rude for me to buy the game and then go over to his house and play it all the way through. :-D

    #20 6 years ago
  21. No_PUDding

    Only potentially?

    :P

    Well hopefully you see one on the side of the street, with a “take me” note on it. Some rich bastard doesn’t have the space in his media centre anymore.

    Split/Second over GT5?
    Mass Effect 2 over FF13?

    These are my only questions…

    (For the automatic name-callers, I own both systems;)

    GT5 and FFXIII werent really shown all that much at E3, it would be hard to rate something you’ve only seen a few seconds of higher then something playable and/or demoed by a dev on the floor.

    #23 6 years ago
  24. Dr.Ghettoblaster

    good point

    #24 6 years ago

    Out of all the interesting PC stuff shown they choose a fucking Star Wars MMO. Fuck sake.
