@  Xellos : (22 September 2016 - 05:25 PM)

Neon Tiger's stage music from Mega Man X3 was also pretty much straight from Guns 'N Roses' "My Michelle". X5 also renamed all the Mavericks as references to GNR.

@  Dracula : (22 September 2016 - 02:26 PM)

the band name is Journey btw.

@  Bass X0 : (22 September 2016 - 02:25 PM)

i never heard Journey before today (BBC R2 Ken Bruce Show) but recognised it immediately.

@  ShadowMan024 : (22 September 2016 - 02:15 PM)

Shade Man's theme sounds like a mariachi song.

@  ShadowMan024 : (22 September 2016 - 02:13 PM)

Yeah. Lots of Mega Man songs are copied from bigger songs.

@  Bass X0 : (22 September 2016 - 12:50 PM)

Did Capcom copy Elec Man's stage theme from Journey by Faithfully?

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 September 2016 - 11:33 AM)

Things that make you go "blergh".

bees. my god.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 September 2016 - 11:03 AM)

bees are revolutionary force, wasps are mecernaries.

@  Rycochet : (21 September 2016 - 09:36 AM)

But wasps can survive stinging, it's why they're such b*****ds and will fly straight at you. Buzzy buzzy bees on the other hand...

@  Whirl Maximus : (21 September 2016 - 09:30 AM)

I was stung by a wasp yesterday and just got a letter from his family solicitor for manslaughter

@  Robowang : (21 September 2016 - 08:45 AM)

Don't care. Not my car.

Did you remember to put down a tarp first this time?

There's a dead hooker in the trunk!

@  Broadside : (21 September 2016 - 07:03 AM)

There are worse mistakes to make!

@  ▲ndrusi : (21 September 2016 - 07:01 AM)

Ian saw that "see you turn into a Chris McFeely" post, didn't get the reference, and took it seriously.

@  Broadside : (21 September 2016 - 06:48 AM)

Action Man really ramped up the awful puns this issue. Maybe after McFeely died last issue, Ian took on his mantle?

@  Telly : (20 September 2016 - 05:29 PM)

been thinking of getting a soundbar. but what exactly do they do? are they like home theater systems but without satellite speakers?

@  MEDdMI : (20 September 2016 - 12:52 PM)

These days, there's Craig's List. (use at your own risk)

@  Bass X0 : (20 September 2016 - 12:46 PM)

I just remembered that the Marvel UK Transformers comic printed the full address of kids wanting to trade with other fans. Surely that wouldn't be allowed today?

Development of Mirror's Edge 2 has been "stopped" by EA.

A team at DICE showed EA a prototype that was "declined", according to a Eurogamer Sweden translation of a Press 2 Play TV report.

"Patrick [Soderlund - EA driving and shooting game boss] acknowledges that Mirror's Edge didn't match up to their expectations regarding sales, and that has stopped the sequel that has been in development," declared the report, published originally in December.

"EA was shown a prototype, but declined with askance. The project has been stopped - involved parties at DICE are working on something else now. Patrick himself seems to have Mirror's Edge near his heart, but they are not in the business of charity."

Presumably the extra development is going into Battlefield 3 - EA's well publicised attempt at wrestling shooter supremacy from the Call of Duty series.

Patrick Soderlund confirmed last summer that "a small team" at DICE was 'on' a new Mirror's Edge game. Eurogamer pressed him on that point last November.

"Mirror's Edge is an IP that's close to my heart and EA's as well. It was a bold move from us. I'm proud we made it. It obviously didn't reach the commercial success we wanted, even though it wasn't bad at all," he said.

"I still think as a company we're going to talk about it when we're going to talk about it. What I can say is, we haven't buried it. We're absolutely continuing to support Mirror's Edge as an IP. When we're ready to talk about it, we'll talk about it."

EA Games boss Frank Gibeau went on record a few weeks later to say that the execution of Mirror's Edge "fell short". "There were issues with the learning curve, the difficulty, the narrative, and then there was no multiplayer either," he said.

Man, that's a bloody shame. But, given how nearly everywhere I went a few weeks after it's release, I should have expected that/

I thought it was ok but I think Assassin's creed does much the same thing better.

yup it was definitely the lack of multiplayer that killed it, a half assed online mode would've made the game sell like gangbusters. damn executives.

Sarcasm aside I generally liked the first one and was looking forward to the second so this news sucks.

It wasnt that AC did it better per say but it did it easier theres a comic from some website out there that has a perfect example of that. In ME with 4-5 button presses youd get up a wall where as AC basically boils down to hold A. Which wouldnt really have worked for ME if it was that simplified and when you got moving properly it was awesome but that system was completely unforgiving.

That said i was really hoping ME2 would have fixed some of the issues or atleast toned down the complexity but what are ya gonna do. Maybe 14 years from now someone company will make that sequel, hell anythings possible now a days.



ADVENTURE TIME!!!!
