What's On Good Game Tonight?

Great games on offer this week on Good Game...

* Will the Street Fighter franchise ever die? We think not, as we test out the latest Streeties offering with Super Street Fighter IV.

* HEY. Who turned out the lights? This game has us shakin’ in our boots, when an author’s fiction-thriller comes to life in Alan Wake – with a great dev interview thrown in for good measure.

Also, where are your games and consoles stored? Casually strewn across the lounge room floor (like mine)? You may want to consider keeping them under lock-and-key, after AJAX brings us a story on gaming theft in our own homes...

Catch Good Game Monday nights on ABC2 @ 8:30pm – and now also Good Game: Spawn Point (especially for younger gamers) on Saturday nights on ABC3 @ 7:25pm.

Watch any episode at www.abc.net.au/goodgame Or if you miss them, watch higher quality versions on ABC’s iView service.

Til next week, Hex


    Gaming theft? Why bother, from what I’ve heard the 360 and PS3 are rather proficient and catching criminals all by themselves.

    Or you can do what I do, have an elaborate Rube Goldberg machine that kicks you in the beanbag with an oversized boot as soon as you open my door.

    If there is any reference to "Ryu in disguise" in the Streeties review I am claiming credit after a drunken conversation whilst playing the game with the reviewer a little while ago.

    Higher quality versions on iView? If you mean PS3 as well, Your joking right?

      Higher quality than the god awful ones on the GoodGame site.

        D: sounds like the only way to watch a decent episode is by digital broadcast. Who the hell watches broadcast television anymore?

          The iTunes download isn't too bad, nothing spectacular, but definitely better than iView imo.

    What happened to the Robot Unicorn attack (along with other flash games) review?
    I was strangly looking forward to that segment. (THERE IS NO SHAME)

    "HEY. Who turned out the lights?"
    Nice Doctor Who reference!

    No Red Dead Redemption?? D:

      By the look of it, no RDR next week either...

    Ugh, they're going to massacre the Alan Wake review. I expect 85% bias, 15% opinion, 0% review. But hell, I remember reading articles about Alan Wake before the 360 was even released, so I've not paid attention to any reviews yet. I only hope they don't spoil it.

    As for gaming theft, sounds interesting... I have much more expensive and much more get away with-able things in much more obvious places in my house though xD Good thing I live in a nice neighbourhood...

      ...15% opinion? all reviews, on any show or website, are 100% opinion... whether or not bias influences that opinion is another story.

        Gamespot disagrees!

        "Wait, reviews are just opinions. Right?"

        Actually, we don't think so. We make no excuses for our verdicts about games and believe our reviews stand for themselves. While our reviews, of course, do contain an element of subjectivity to them, we see the process of reviewing games as one that primarily involves the reporting of facts. To an extent, we naturally color these facts based on our own experiences of having spent much time playing other games in the past, but we make every effort to look at every game on its own merits, and we describe each game in the most factual terms possible. To this end, in the rare event that one of our reviews contains a factual inaccuracy, we will correct the inaccuracy and will acknowledge it in an editor's note that's appended to the end of the review.


          Eh, who are you?

          Okay, what I was saying is, the opinion is fine, we need opinion... but it seems to me like their opinions are very heavily influenced (biased?) by what others have already said elsewhere.

          I.e. the Gametrailers review... I'm not saying they "plagiarised", I'm not even saying they so much as glance at Gametrailers, haha, but it feels sometimes like parts of a lot of their reviews are almost paraphrased... it just isn't interesting any more.

      Oh good, so I'm not the only one who noticed listings for Alan Wake that early. I'm rather intrigued by that game, and intend to grab it on Thursday.

      But I'm not watching Good Game. Can't be bothered using the download quota to watch on the net, and my TV isn't receiving ABC or 7 atm...

    I caught a glimpse of a Machinarium mention on spawn point. I second that notion (despite the suggestion probably coming from a 10 yr old...)

    Hex with pink hair gets a thumbs up from me.
