    I tried Viva and was impressed by graphics, but not really excited about the gameplay itself. I don't want to rake a garden so little worms can move in and do whatever it is pinata's do to procreate. Just me though, people can enjoy whatever they want.

    heh

    that's a really funny statement from M$.

    to get at the "casual" gamer.

    ffs, the likes of lost planet and GoW are aimed at the "casual" gamer.

    infact, any game that can be completed in less than 8 hours could be
    considered a game for a "casual" gamer.

    M$?

    I honestly can't understand why people put that.

    A company has gotta make money. If you owned a company wouldn't you want it to make the most money you could possibly get?

    I'm what a person would call a casual gamer...

    I would consider 8 hours out of my day about... 5 weeks worth of action... i consider that 'hard-core'

    And if you really do spend 8 hours a day playing on a game

    A) Do you not have a life (i.e. Job, Friends, School etc)?

    B) Do you have a lot of eye problems?


    I honestly can't stand playing on a game for more than 2 hours a day max... i think about an hour or so a day (or 2) is enough for most people.

    =/

    Whatever

    1. yes i have a job...for 20 years in fact, and i have lots of friends and a family.

    2. no. my eye's are fine (for a 37 year old) but have to wear specs occasionally for my job.

    anyone who considers gears of war a casual game is a "stupid" gamer.

    go learn what casual means.

    hmm..struck a nerve here haven't i?

    me stupid? i think not my friend.

    how can you not consider GoW to be casual? the main "campaign" mode
    is short, and the online multiplayer is great for an hour or so at a time, ditto
    lost planet.

    that would be a definition of "casual" would it not?

    a game like oblivion on the other hand would be considered a "hardcore" game
    aimed at people who like more than a 10 minute blast.

    cynical i might be...stupid i am not.

    not really, theres no nerve to strike, i dont work for Epic or any of them
    and obviously you dont know much if you think online is only good for a hour, you should consider the number of people who have the Seriously... achievement, which is to get 10,000 kills.
    or, how its been the top played xbox live game for months since its release, still "only fun for a hour"
    this, my 37 year old friend who goes on a wii forum, is why i called you a stupid gamer.

    Really?

    I've been around since windows 3.0

    ... i've seen it all bud...

    =/ Don't patronise me. School systems are more advance than they were 27 years ago... we probably know more than you ever will. I'm 17 not 12... i know how a company and money works.


    A company has to make money, Monopolise things, Steal Ideas, Evolve. Otherwise it would never get anywhere now would it?

    Without Microsoft you wouldn't have Windows Operating systems... so basically without them there would be NOTHING! ... don't, anybody, come back with 'mac this mac that'... it's a mac... it can't do ANYTHING USEFUL.

    Be Grateful.


    =/ NB - I don't take kindly to patronisation.


    I'm not 'Kid', I'm Not Dumb, I'm Not A Retard. Don't treat me like one.

    @ sovieto & flood502

    well guys, it looks like we'll have to beg to differ.

    oddly enough, the Wii forum isn't the only forum i frequent. it does however
    seem to have the most "protective" forumites i have come across.

    i made a statement, which was (and still is) my opinion. for that i get
    flippant remarks, not quite flaming, but almost, aimed back at me because
    i question the business decision of the worlds richest company.
    a lot of people i know specifically bought a 360 to play GoW, when up until then,
    the last consoles they had bought were SNES, MegaDrive or PS1's.....that's what
    i would class as casual.

    as for affiliation to companies (sovieto, from your "epic" remark) i ought to
    have more than probably either of you. i'm currently an MCP, who is working
    through MCSA an (hopefully) onto MCSE. look up the abreviations to see
    what i'm referring to.

    as for schools being better than 27 years ago (flood502) you're probably
    right...they're bound to be better equipped. all we had were BBC and amstrads "computers".

    oh, by the way...windows 3.x isn't an OS, it's a GUI for DOS.

    as for the MAC? i'm no fan, never touched one tbh, and unless i get into
    graphics or dtp then i doubt i ever will.

    you don't take kindly to patronisation? i don't take kindly to childish flippant
    "whatever" nonsense...i see enough of that every day on tv thank you.

    anyway, as i said, we'll have to beg to differ on this one.
