Excellent launch line-up which caters for every taste:

If your a FPS fan you have Perfect Dark Zero, Quake 4 and Call of Duty 2.
If your an action/adventure fan you have Kameo, Condemned, Gun and King Kong
Racing fans have NFS:MW and PGR3
Sports fans have all those EA games

Finally we have a console launch with both quantity AND quality.

No Ridge Racer 6 for EU? Booo...
Commented on 2005-11-14 16:25:33
Having no NBA 2k makes the choice of basketball game easier. NBA Live 06 it is...
Commented on 2005-11-14 16:30:19
kinda weird that games WILL be launch title in the US but won't be a launch
title in Europe thats a week's difference :S
well i won't have a problem, i'm only getting Perfect Dark Zero for now and some Obivion + Saint's row later :D
Commented on 2005-11-14 16:30:28
No 2k for Europe, oh well...

No DOA4 although I heard it might come out next year in Europe.

Well I guess it's PDZ, COD2, Kameo and PGR3 for launch! :D

Thanks for the list BlimBlim.
Commented on 2005-11-14 16:43:01
PGR3 + Kameo + PDZ = best launch ever

FireWire: I would guess at localisation being the problem, EU games require a lot of translation!
Commented on 2005-11-14 17:10:03
PDZ + COD2 wohoo!! just gotta hold it together till saint's row.

yeah i know, the only thing is i really think it's bullshit. Translation SUCKS in my opinion. I'm dutch myself and whenever they translate a game or movie or whatever in dutch, it sucks.....

Examples:

They kinda only translate children's movies to dutch, wich i can imagine a little bit because the 4 year old's can't understand english. But when i'm on a trip to germany or france i kinda hate it how they translate movies/tv series, i saw terminator 2 on a german channel once, and i laughed my ass off: They had Arnie translated to german by some squeek voiced actor, who screemed: "ICH KOMME ZURUG" or how ever u spell that.

Same with translation of a game, i NEVER EVER use a translation for a game, cause if i do i would laugh my ass off just about how lame every character sounds.

Same with translating of windows, u got a dutch version of windows, man that shit is just plain irritating. I can imagine kids or non-english speaking folks (that's like 1% in holland :D) being happy about it. But for me (and i know ALLOT of people who share my opinion) it's just annoying and a waist of time.

I grew up watching english spoken movies/cartoons/games and whatever, that's how i kinda learned english (everybody get's english on school here but they teach u "moron" english) and i think children learn english much faster by watching and hearing english allot.

it's also irritating when they do subtitle's over here. I sometimes laugh really hard on how they translate it. For example; Star wars, you got R2D2, when his name is mentioned, the subtitle says: artoodeetoo :D

As a dutchie myself, I can totally agree with you. Dubbing sucks.
Commented on 2005-11-14 17:30:01
Ah! I got the very same problem with translations here in Denmark...
Commented on 2005-11-14 17:34:32
No DOA4 T_T well PDZ+Kameo suits it for me ^^

To bad some games aren't being launched in Europe I'm Dutch myself so
Commented on 2005-11-14 17:41:01
EU lineup: Due Germans, French, Dutch and all those who want games to be localized. We do not have dubbing in Finland, except for some children movies, and there is always non-dubbed version too.

Where the **** is RR6 for Europe?
As always with games published by another publisher in Europe (EA, instead of Namco), it's late. Same with DOA4.

    Sdarts @Megido: Some games, though extremely rare, do transcend genres and should be played regardless of a person's opinion about said genre. Same with movies, books, music, etc. (13 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX How can it be essential if it's only for people that enjoy video games? It's not air! (35 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido @droezelke: Well any genre, no matter how good the game is, kinda hinges on that the player doesn't hate the genre :P (1 Hour ago)
