have two and they are both well rounded and a pleasure to play with.
am of course talking about game consoles namely my ps2 and Dreamcast. Each
system has games that appeal to different people; this seems to be a point
that many people seem to be missing. Now the age old argument of whose
console is the best has come back again to haunt and taunt us again.
all truth it never really went away, it just simmered whilst the behemoth
that was widely called the Playstation took control. But now with the
imminent arrival of the Gamecube and Xbox many little boys [and it is just
boys] are beginning to get caught up in the 'revolutionary' new games and
'oh look graphics to die for'…etc.
the 80's it was the three way battle between the C64, Amstrad and Spectrum
which caused the fuss, but now in the naughties it is between PS2,
Gamecube and Xbox.. or is it. This battle may be won actually on the
quality of games released for each system.. or in other words which Sega
games appear on each system. If you are reading this you have probably
bought a Dreamcast, no doubt for Sega’s excellent games, or in the 'main
reviewers' case 'Street Fighter'. Either way you are well aware that the
100 dc games to be released was in fact a lie, I wouldn't be surprised if
half-life gets canned soon.
make the system, and with Sega now taking up the oldest profession in the
business and whoring itself to any willing child [nintendo] or geek [microsoft]
or fonze [ps2!] that will take it, the quality of these next-next-next
generation machines may actually improve.
is not what you need, it's competition. Sega games on every platform is
good for gamers, other companies like 3DO may actually be forced to design
a good army man game, miracles do happen. With Sega now a free agent along
with all of it sub sections, the next generation system battle may well be
between AM2 and Hitmaker. Sega is laughing, however dc owners are not with
many of their games being moved to future consoles, bad vibes are
are another major player this time around as they will publish their
fighting games on all major platforms, even going so far to release an
arcade control set up compatible with all the consoles from Saturn
onwards. This time around games may play an important part in a consoles
present the only safe bet is PS2. So maybe its games have been a little
slow it does have some good games available. I am not getting caught up in
the Nintendo hype just yet, as I seem to remember their 'silicon graphics'
tech demonstrating showing the power of the N64. Finally Microsoft, who
are they appealing to? PC owners won't want Xbox, because they have their
PC's and the long line of FPS and strategy games. I suppose Microsoft are
appealing to those people who are amazed by graphics only, so boys then.
what game is Microsoft publicising a lot? Well Dead or Alive 3 with new
woman with brand new breast algorithm's, and Malice featuring…oh
surprise a ickle tiny wide eye girl. Visual Candy for the boys. At time of
writing I don't believe that there will be a great difference from Xbox/Gamecube/PS2
games, developers are a crafty bunch. Just look at the next generation
footage of Lara Croft, this game looks better than MGS2 and Malice.
