This week, the Gaming Flashback looks back at the Gamecube title mentioned by Jordan Lund last week, Eternal Darkness, and the guys respond to the reader mail from episode 217, and if you’re interested in other types of games such as escape rooms you can visit the Room escape games in Portland Oregon just for this.

    @ Halo won’t be a yearly franchise:
    Right, I’ll take their word for it. Thing is, with their current schedule, yearly franchise or not, they will have sales for the earlier one eaten up by the later game.

    @ Kinect appealed to “more hardcore” than expected:
    Microsoft doesn’t have to do anything. I believe that the game developers will manage to create a control scheme for hardcore game(r)s.

    @2M users sign up for COD: Elite beta
    Protest or not, this is just an improvement in the matchmaking service. Why not play Quake Live?
    What I am saying is that there will always somebody willing to do this for free.

    @Wizardry Online announced, will feature permadeath:
    Permadeath + PVP = niche market. The only thing that can make it worse is high-damage / insta-kill weapons.

    Speaking of MMOs:

    @How much do you think the Wii U will cost?
    Man, I hate price guessing …
    I say 150 USD. Middle way between a plain controller and the 3DS. Bare in mind, this is just for the controller.

    I’d say $350 USD including the console and a controller. Which will probably end up being $550 Australian or more 🙁

    QOTW – I’m going to say $350. Probably 250 for the console and 100 for the controller. Maybe less for the controller and more for the console, but I’m thinking somewhere around 300. I can’t see it going much higher than 400 though, I don’t think the casual audience that the Wii appealed to will want to shell out the extra 300+ dollars for a new console. Its going to be interesting to see what the official price is.
