That was moving. I lost my dad when I was 21 and even if he never touched a game controller his whole life, he still was the one who brought home a Master System one night with a game for each of my brothers and I and that’s how I became a gamer too.

all the things that 99 to 99.8 percent of people will think is just the coolest

This Hayes guy annoys the hell out of me with his outlandish quotes and assumptions. I think more than 0.2 to 1 percent of people won’t be overjoyed with the inclusion of Bruce Lee.

I always interested in what Drinkbox makes. They’re quite an awesome little Studio!

That’s some first class french accent right there :-)
Full disclosure: I’m french too.

I never actually see these versions run but I thought these were more ports than enhanced versions.

I think the PC version of GTA IV was confirmed about 4 months after the release of the game on PS3/360 and the game itself was released on PC 8 months after that initial release.

GTA V has been out 7 months now and a PC version still hasn’t been announced. That might still come but I’m really not sure a next gen version is in the cards. With such a huge world and complex game, that would be no small task to adapt their engine and improve the visuals for next gen. And to my knowledge, Rockstar has never even made an HD version of their PS2-era games.

Other than people asking for it, I don’t see anything that indicates a next gen version could be in the works. But I’ll probably buy it eventually if it does come out.

Don’t hold your breath for next-gen GTA V, I would be very surprised if it did happen.

Well since I still haven’t bought the PS3 version, yes. I’ll wait for this version. That’ll give my PS4 something to do!

It does seem pretty harsh but that seems to fit with what a 3 is for Polygon : “Threes fail completely in two of three ways: design, execution or basic functionality — or they barely achieve a baseline in any of these.”

According to the review, I guess they consider the game fails completely on design and execution.

Yeah, I know, and I might just be too cynical, maybe they do know well enough what he might have liked or not.

That was roughly my understanding of it too, that UFC didn’t quite seem to have the rules and philosophy that martial arts have.

You’re very welcome!

Well, historic figures don’t sell as much as movie stars. My issue is with the intent mostly, and if the depiction is true to what we know of the person. I wouldn’t have a problem with a F1 game that would feature old glories of that sport like Ayrton Senna for example. In the present case, UFC didn’t exist when Bruce Lee was still alive, thus making it a weird match to me. Obviously, a lot of people here think it’s a perfect match though, so you know… opinions!

Comment

If so, the match with UFC seems indeed better!

It’s not important that everyone understand what I mean so I shouldn’t bother all of you with it but if you create your own style, it’s a defined set of moves and techniques. Once you have a fight within that style, you know what to expect from your opponent and what moves you’re allowed to make. Here, the mixing of styles is done “on the fly” and as much as you can do whatever you want, your opponent can too. That’s why I consider it a different thing, I hope that’s a little clearer.

Maybe he would have been thrilled! Maybe Michael Jackson would have been thrilled to know there would be 2 albums released in his name after his death. But unless it was a known and expressed wish of them, my stance on the subject remains that we shouldn’t assume and use their names and likeliness/voice for new projects.

I understand not many people would be as cautious as I am with this but it really feels like some people are exploiting the fame of these dead men to make money.

I’m no expert on Bruce Lee but mixing fighting styles in combat is still not the same as creating a new style based on a combination of existing ones. I don’t know, maybe I’m not explaining myself clearly enough, or maybe our conceptions simply differ.

And if your window only broke 9/10 times, you’d have 1/10 chance of the controller bouncing back and hitting you in the head!

I think building a new martial art based on different moves and techniques from other martial arts is a very different thing than putting two person fighting anyway they want in the same ring.

And my issue is mostly that being dead, nobody can assume Bruce Lee would want to be featured in such a game.

It doesn’t make sense to me because you can’t assume a dead man would enjoy being in such a game. Also, Ultimate Fighting really doesn’t feel like martial arts to me.

Hmm, I think there are great books from long, long, looooong before the 70’s.

I can’t conceive of a universe where bringing these two things together doesn’t make sense

Well damn, it sure doesn’t make sense to me… Why not include Ayrton Senna too?

Comment

Different opinions I guess. I think COD Black Ops 2 makes more sense than if it was COD VII-2 (or whatever number the first blops was).
If you’re going to use the franchise name as nothing other than a way to ensure people will buy it (but there’s in fact no link with the previous games of the same name), I’d say it would be clearer to avoid numbers. But that’s of course only my view on the matter, I’m not asking everyone to agree ;-)

Comment

I’m interested. This game could very well join the list of games I’ll regret never having time to play.
