Is a release deletion currently a MOD only feature? Just ntoiced a few wrong new releases that need updating but there is no function to delete by default. I went to edit and under the notes flagged one for a deletion. Is this the only way barring getting my wiki submissions up to 1000 points in order to bypass moderation?

Lee's was heartbreaking, probably one of the most emotional deaths I've seen in a game. I chose to cut off his arm too so he was a total wreck by the time Clementine pulled the trigger. Such a well put together ending, was worried if it would all tie together by the end of the 4th episode, but it pulled itself back really well. Interested to see what they do with a second season.

Also i agree with Larrys death, that whole episode was a what the fuck for me. Really dark thematically, but i think it worked well.

@CaLe: Is that not a GAME exclusive thing like the deal with THQ for Space Marine last year? Sucks ass if so but then they do like to screw over their customers (everywhere).

PC Gamer has a review up too here. I remember the FC2 reviews, i didn't enjoy it as much as they suggested and i felt the whole injecting thing a quirky mechanic that never really fulfilled its potential. Became WAY too much of a chore. Think the problem i always find with massive open words is dynamic content, something Red Dead did really well. That being said, may give it a look in on the PC at some point!

Uplay is Ok, downloaded the client to get used to it, very lame that if you already own Ubi games, you can't tie them into your account for a digital copy yet, or in no way that i've seen. Basically having to buy two copies of any Ubi games you own is lame.

So i've just been checking out the CVG and IGN Far Cry 3 reviews. Interesting they seem to give them similar scores. What are peoples thoughts on it? Be interesting to see if it does live up to the hype, and capture the feeling of a good, sprawling open world first person game.

Hey guys, glad to see so much enthusiasm about the release announcement. For those asking about the PC platform, we're currently focused on the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game and don't have any details to share about a PC version at this time.

Oh dear.

So it appears that i am very bad at keeping to a schedule regarding posting. This will change! Starting today, a blog about a various Game topic or question from anyone, i will try and answer swiftly, and honestly!

First one for today.

The state of handheld Gaming (Part 1)

I personally think, there is a case for keeping the handheld console alive. Unfortunately with devices like the iPhone, the Galaxy S3, iPad, BB Playbook.. and so on, we have a serious black hole of purpose for custom handhelds. The desire for the devices we carry to be an all in one entertainment hub, complete with instant connectivity to our friends and the world around us i think caught everybody off guard a few years back.

Nintendo went (as is their style these days) in a totally sideways direction, using the industry's latest gimmick (3D) as it's major selling point. The hardware will never be incredible, given Nintendo's desire for innovation and game play over raw power and aesthetics in their games.

Sony on the other hand, took the best part of it's rivals bestseller (the touchscreen) and expanded upon it, to create a kind of beastly device that does all the things people are looking for, but in such a iffy form factor that it has become a bit of a Frankenstein in terms of handhelds. Not exactly a dinky pocket-sized portable device, but a kind of coffee table PS3. It is awkward to carry with you as a result, and despite its beautiful looks suffers from poor UI design.

Compare to the iPad, an all in one device. No buttons save for the home button, and an all touch interface. What it does better then BOTH devices is its ability to give you on the fly access to games, music, films and books and STILL manages to do it without many lock-ups or convoluted systems. Apple has their UI nailed and although IOS is struggling to compete with Android in terms of new innovations i feel that it really has got its background architecture just right.

So where do we go from here? In terms of dedicated platforms for portable gaming, i think that ship sailed a few years ago, the Vita and the 3DS exist because both companies wanted to keep their legacies going, and i cant fault that. But a wise business move? I don't believe so.

Any questions/ hints/ critiques feel free below and on the PM. Part 2 coming tommorow!
