Why so serious?
Developers = Publishers and Developers
The used game market is a very controversial market. Developers hate it, Gamestop and EB Games loves it. No matter where you actually stand on the used game war, we can all agree that it's a swift kick in the balls when you trade in a game they worked their ass on for just a couple of bucks.
I'm a person that strongly supports the used games/trade-in market. As I do agree that Gamestop/EB games should give more money for the games, you can't hate me for taking the deal. Me being a 14 year old, I have no job, I get 15 bucks a weeks, which almost all of that goes to "social" events such as movies, school football games, etc. I don't have enough money to get the latest blockbuster game each week. So if I want said game, I'll happily sacrifice two games for it.
Now personally, I don't blame my love of trading things in solely on lack of money, developers need to give me a game that in 6 months, I still want to have in my grasps, examples being LittleBigPlanet, bought it launch day and just now recently traded it in. Gears of War 2, had it since launch. Call of Duty Modern Warfare, had it since day 1, still have it. Games in the future are doing the same, Mass Effect 2, Borderlands, etc. But look at single player games, I bet you anything that the trade in numbers for them are higher than, say, Sacred 2.
The used game market is totally different, there is really nothing you can do to change that. It will happen, it will suck for developers, and it will continue until digital media takes over hard copies which will be a while. But when you think about it, it's kind of the developers/publishers being greedy. You've been paid for the copy that you sent out to Gamestop, their just taking advantage of bad games and low re-play value. It all comes back to trading in games, the only person that can really hurt Gamestop in that industry is you and I.
Fact of the matter is, trading in games/buying used games is both our fault, we could change it but John Lennon coming back to life and slapping Yoko Ono is more likely to happy than that. Now if you will all excuse me, I need to go power trade some games toward Beatles Rock Band.
4Aug 08Well I want to start off by saying thank God it's Monday.I missed watching my TV show's everyday.And I get to watch Raw tonight but to be honest it wont be nothing special because there is no interesting feud to me going on right now,well there is one,and that's Jericho vs Shawn Michaels but that has been going on for a while so it's getting tedious.Well like the topic says,I went back to the past..well sorta.I bought a N64 and 6 games for 5 bucks from my friend.Here is some pictures Well I was thinking about writing some review's of a few of the games.But it'll be tough to write reviews cause I'll have to put myself back in that time to were I think those graphics look great although compared to MGS 4,Halo and other's they look like crap.But the only two I've played is the Army Men game and Pokemon Stadium.I remember when I was younger I used to play Pokemon:Stadium frequently.Well some impressions of Army Men would be that the controls are balls(AKA not very good).But the realism is nice.Only one shot till the other soldiers die and every time you throw a gernade it will light the tree's around the explosion on fire.Another thing that's balls is the AI your teamated will just stand there as you are trying to protect them and they got a Gun in there hands but they just sit there like dumbass'es.Well I will be posting no preview tonight but I might have one out tomorrow sometime but I'm also going to see Step Brother's tomorrow hopefully.I got some new clothes that I would like to talk about too.Well the shirts I got was a Ghostbuster's shirt and Beavis and Butthead but I got one that I wont to where to school just to piss my Principal off.It says"Grab your ball's we are going Bowling!"and he said to me last year(Because I had a shirt that said she loved my nut's and it had a table and some peanuts on them)that I should have no dirty humor shirts.I just want to know if he'll remember.Well that's all for now,well that's probably all for tonight because I wont be posting anything for rest of the night.Well see you guy's tomorrow,unless you post a blog and I'll comment it.
Well since Kisuke is leaving for Italy tomorrow I'm gonna write my preview tonight so he see it and all it's beauty.Well this is another game that is incredibly hyped and,unlike Killzone 2,will blow your expectations out the water.But this was also showed at E3 unlike Killzone and this looked beautiful.
Huge open-ended world.
Loads of re-play value
Graphics are stunning
Some AI issues.
All-in-all this game will definately live up to the hype.The reason there was no undecided is because I'm gonna do away with that part of my previews.Well I'm done with this preview and I hope you enjoyed it Kisuke and I don't know what my next preview will be so it's up to you and after that I'm gonna go back to choosing my own previews.
