Sega attempts to save real hedgehogs in Sonic Colors promo {Joystiq}

Nov 12th 2010 3:58AM Have you read the review on that eurogamer site for sonic 4? 9 out of 10 they gave it. I'm not sure which sonic game they were playing...

Gears of War 3 gains multiplayer beta in 2011 'featuring dedicated servers' {Joystiq}

Oct 7th 2010 1:25PM @Mazrael

Nah that's not the case. The majority of games are Peer 2 Peer. They have matchmaking servers that connect you to other games and regulate the matchmaking settings but it selects a host from one of the players.

@Vcize

Fair enough man I didn't realise there were a fair few that have done dedicated servers.Still it's a significant change to GoW as Host advantage was a considerable issue, atleast until the last TU in GoW2 anyhow.

Gears of War 3 gains multiplayer beta in 2011 'featuring dedicated servers' {Joystiq}

I'm genuinely curious here. Among the fps genre, what are these dozen of games with dedicated server?. It may be that you meant across the board and not just fps but other than the Battlefield series I can't think of a single other game.

Joystiq Podcast 149 - Manly edition {Joystiq}

Aug 19th 2010 5:24PM Enjoyable podcast as always.

I'm From the UK and I also tried that channel 4 FMV game. No it's not a UK-US thing it truly has terrible load times even here. I agree it looks quite cool but I just gave up because of the loading.

I've got a small niggle though. "I could care less" really isn't the saying. This seems to be a typical American abuse but to say "you could care less" means that you do care to some degree. The saying is trying to imply how little you care about something and to say it in this way doesn't really work.

Say, for example, the amount you cared was a percentage. To say "I could care less" would mean that my caring percentage was between 1-100%. Clearly this doesn't portray the idea behind the use of the saying appropriately. The proper way, i.e "I couldn't care less" is appropriate as it literally means my caring percentage is 0. There is absolutely no possibility for me to care any less than I currently do.

I realise this is a dumb thing to spend 2 paragraphs complaining about on a comments section that is unlikely to be read, but it's just one of those things. Ah well.

WRUP: Regional cooling {Joystiq}

Aug 6th 2010 11:46PM I'm back on Forza 3 now that I've finished playing through last Q4's Big games. Going through it slowly but it's nice game to just chill out and play as it doesn't require me to engage with a story etc.

Toy Soldiers DLC this week, Worms 2 DLC on July 7 {Joystiq}

Jun 29th 2010 9:33PM All well and good but I can't even get into an xbox live game of Worms 2. I try every now and again but it just never finds any opponents. Doesn't really seem like anyone's playing it.

Jun 21st 2010 12:19PM Very Cool. Fingers crossed the game lives up to expectations. looks good so far.

CliffyB: 'Two upcoming games' on Monday's Late Night; Us: It's totally Bulletstorm and Gears of War 3 {Joystiq}

Apr 9th 2010 9:29PM Ah so it's jealousy.

In my opinion the guy jokes about with the "ego" role no more than any regular male would, but as soon as you decide you don't like the guy, for whatever reason (most likely jealousy), then all his "jackassery" just makes you angrier.

That's my opinion anyway

There is a new King of Kong {Joystiq}

Mar 10th 2010 8:56AM It's not quite a constant reducing time limit that causes the kill screen and actually a bug in the code. On level 22 some oversight on the code causes the timer to be calculated wrong and gives them a couple of seconds to finish the level, resulting in a quick and sudden death.

Still, cool to see a new master in town!

Ready Check: Festergut and friends {WoW}

Jan 22nd 2010 4:42PM We use the W formation. The healer with the least amount of healing while movement capability goes in the centre forward position and all the ranged move to him/her during the spores.

Also try to split the raid evenly. 5 standing in melee range (2 tanks, 1 healer and extra ranged if less melee are available) and 5 in the ranged formation. Should ensure that the spores spawn separately (1 in range 1 in melee).
