Yep, in case you didn’t know Guinness World records has a video game catagory, and Daniel Johnson has beat the old record by more then 10,000 points while playing ‘Through the Fire and Flame’ by DragonForce on Expert, according to [DevelopMag].
So now if you out to try to beat the world record, you’ll need to nail more then 890, 971 on the song.. Good luck, with that. I’m still lucky to get 5% into the song on Expert, my old man hands just aren’t as fast as they used to be.
According to [EuroGamer], and Xbox LIVE general manger Marc Whitten, Microsoft will be removing under performing (read: Crap) titles from Xbox LIVE. I wonder why they let the crap on in the first place. I stated a long time ago that I didn’t pay like $400 for a 360 just to play Pac-Man.
Anyway, Marc stats:
“We will be delisting older underperforming titles in order to keep the service focused on a section of high quality games,” Whitten told [Next-gen.biz].
“The way it will work is that the title will need to be at least 6 months old and have a Metacritic score below 65 and a conversion rate below 6 percent on the service.”
“We will also give a three-month notice before delisting any title.”
the ‘conversion rate’ mentioned above is the ratio between the people that have downloaded the game VS those that bought it. But hey, at least you’ve got 3 months before the game get’s wasted and you don’t ‘lose’ it, as long as you’ve got the game downloaded and you don’t need to replace the HD, because you won’t be able to download it again.
According to [Bloomberg Japan] Capcom is in talks with Hollywood in order to try to make some of the cash that Marvel is/was seeing from it’s string of movie hits (like Spider man and Xmen). By making movies from titles like ‘Resident Evil’, ‘Devil May Cry’, and ‘Street Fighter’…
So who at Capcom is blind, and totally forgot that there’s already BEEN 3 Resident Evil movies, and at least 2 Street Fighter movies.. most of the movies pretty much bombed or where just ‘oh-hum’, and when (if ever) was the last time a GOOD movie was created based off a video game franchise? One that kept the feel, and the idea of the game in check, and not went off of some stupid idea the director got.. like Super Mario Brothers.. WTF was that?!
Just because the lead designer(s) are involved doesn’t mean the movie will be any good.. just look at Mortal Kombat (which I own..but only because of the goddess that is Talisa Soto (that’s Kitana.. Princess Kitana to you) )
Just look at the Doom movie. Really.. now HOW freaking hard must it have been to create a movie about demons rising from hell to take over a military base?!
