No Trophies? WTF?



The Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion was a ground breaking game at its release. The game features a first person fantasy RPG experience that still remains unrivaled to this day. The level of immersion and attention to detail put in the game is astonishing, which makes this game one of the finest RPG's to have entered the gaming realm.

Having said this, it was brought to my surprise that Oblivion would see a re-release on the Playstation Network Store as a download-able copy - BUT NOT INCLUDING TROPHIES. BOO!

Boo on you Bethesda and your lack of proper support for your games. Don't give your games a re-release if they can't keep up with the times. Oblivion came out like 5 years ago at PS3's launch, and you're giving it back to customers with no added features?

Anyways, a lot of other titles are doing the same thing. It's absolute trickery.

For instance Ubisoft released Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 on PSN recently. This game also came out around 5 years ago during PS3's launch year and to be quite frank, it sucks pretty hard. Who are the people buying/RE-buying these shitty old games with no added new features?

Weak.

Doppelgängers in Games


Came across this great article on IGN.com.

I've noticed Nolan North in 99% of the voice overs in games out there, but I never noticed how similar these characters from fan-favorites look.

Take a peek yourself, lol.

The Niko from GTA4 and whoever the other bud is really shocks me - same with the Robin from Batman Arkham City and The Apprentice from Star Wars Force Unleashed 2.

Wheres the creativity? I would expect something like this from EA or THQ or Activision, but ROCKSTAR? Come on? Was this just a coincidence? Or was it planned from the beginning?

Nintendo Wii-U has NO BLU



That's right, Nintendo Wii-U does not support Blu Ray.

Personally, I think this is a good idea, enough devices already play Blu-Ray like PS3 and most computers, so good on you Nintendo for cutting the cost of the device.

High density optical discs is the disc format of the Wii-U, could this be a method of protecting against piracy?
