ever since the Character Horace came into this season(or the last one i can't remember)i have been waiting for him to die....because of Season 2(and the video game)when they found the blue dharma hippy VW van with the skeleton in the jump suit with the name Horace ...so when Sayid picked up that jump suit i just though 'oooohh no'

I'm not the most observant television watcher, but I don't remember a bullet hole in Horace's uniform.


hmm,true...but didnt Sayid have it zipped down?(not sure)...and i am still hoping it IS Horace somehow in the blue hippy VW van on an extreme diet...the van still has to get in the middle of the jungle as well...it all depends on what actually happens with that bomb,if it did work everything means nothing...hmm,maybe that should be the slogan for the last season when its advertised 'Everything means nothing'...that sounds like a typical Lost advertisement soundbite

okay i have just heard(not from Game Informer)...from lvl2 Gamer that Game Informer have a 10 page first look exclusive at Call of Duty:Modern Warfare 2(which we knew)...and that in those 10 pages it is announced the it has some kind of Co-Op

whether modern warfare 2 co-op is one of Game Informers 'Huge' announcements i don't know

this site also has the MW2 scans of the magazine pictures
http://www.lvl2gamer.com/2531/new-modern-warfare-2-screens-game-informer/

[UPDATE]

After carefully examining my hot-off-the-press Game Informer magazine I can confirm that there will be a form of CO-OP in Modern Warfare 2. Infinity Ward CEO West announced that the game will feature a special op mode where we will see scenarios such as the Mile High Club level which does not really fit into a single player campaign. We can assume that this mode will be a 2 player co-op mode with additional DLC down the road West said in the magazine feature.

So we now pretty much confirm that we will have a 6-10 hour single player campaign with ‘Soap’ as an NPC squad leader and the player at his side going through epic scenarios in Brazil, Afghanistan and Russia. More of the details should unfold during E3 and as you all I cannot wait for this game.

sorry to hear that,FWIW IMO the xbox 1(think mine has a Samsung drive) has been one of the most reliable consoles...whereas the 360 is pretty much the worse,i have 2 xbox 360s that are currently RRoD..one is in Germany being fixed the other is awaiting its cardboard coffin

the 360 is a great machine for gaming,and they are supposed to be new versions out in the shops that are supposed to be more reliable....and its about 75-80% Backwards compatible

depends how much Console gaming you go for.....and are you sure its Crash Team Racing?,i thought that was only out for the PS1


EDIT:sorry i guess you meant Crash Tag Team Racing which i never did buy..and i had forgotten about that game

The screen has only gone white in Lost during time travel. Juliette could very well survive.


hmm,thats true...so screen going white,yeah.... they have definetly gone in time then haven't they?

i was just wondering when one of you who said Juliette was in V and wasn't listed for the new season of Lost,perhaps its because to hide the outcome of Juliette...so like TiLT says she could very well be alive

i was actually convinced she was gone..but now you have said that...who knows

the V series has already been filmed hasn't it(its running now isn't it)..if so,Juliette could very well be free to film Lost(i am guessing they will start filming the last season of LOST between now and Christmas)...here's hoping anyway


for now let us remember her best

DO NOT..I REPEAT DO NOT CLICK ON THIS SPOILER IF AT WORK,HAVE CHILDREN AROUND OR ARE OFFENDED EASILY..OR A BIT ABOVE EASILY

12489  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / the Top 100 Developers on: May 16, 2009, 11:45:02 PM
found this site that gives the top 100 game developers for around the world
http://www.develop100.com/


how they have figured it out:
Quote
Develop 100 ranks the world's most bankable games development studios based on a variety of key criteria including sales data, critical success and industry standing.


i am quite proud that the UK has quite a few in there...although i suspect a lot of these developers are for PC as i haven't heard of quite a few and when they come higher than developers like Square Enix or Codemasters i tend to wonder

USA have the most

USA-32
Japan-24
UK-23
Canada-10
Australia-2,France-2,South Korea-2
Norway-1,China-1,Sweden-1,Germany-1,Iceland-1




anyway,please,please,please argue about whether you think this is an acurate list(and whether i have spelt 'Acurate' right,because my spellcheck is going mental)..i don't think its so right myself,but the list is still interesting

eg-Treyarch,who i do think are a good developer at number 7....while developers Infinity Wards are at number 8,Bethesda at number 10..or even Konami at number 11...as said i think Treyarch are good,but IMO,not as good as those


do you think Nintendo deserve the number 2 spot?....discuss icon_biggrin

i hated how this episode they jammed Jacob meeting everyone in their own parts of the world...it would of been much better to of shown Jacob meeting these people when they had the corresponding flashback thoughout the series,this just feels as though they tacked it all on and stuffed it all in one episode

and who was that in bandages in the Hospital who Jacob visited?...was it the Girl who went in the hut?,(who called Richard ricardus)...because at first i thought it was Sayid's wife/girlfriend who got run over

i just asked last week what had happened to Rose,Bernard and Vincent

still thought it was a bit Bullshit how when the bomb got moved from the casing they had 2 hrs to get to the swan,within those two hours ...Kate,Sawyer and Julia escaped the submarine,rowed to shore,found Rose,Bernard and Vincent,talked to them..and then got told that the Barracks were 5 miles walk...and all that and they just happen to intercept Jack and Co

i know that most of us lost interest in this when it turned out we weren't going to relive 'The Stand' or 'I am Legend',i got the leaflet/Pamphlet/Flyer through my letterbox that they were giving out to every household here in the UK on the subject...it went straight in the bin

but this just came up on Sky News


1000 new cases in 24 hrs
Quote
The number of confirmed swine flu cases has reached 7,520, rising more than 1,000 in 24 hours, says the World Health Organisation.

Sixty-five people have died from the virus so far.

It is too early to relax about the H1N1 flu strain, the head of the World Health Organisation said, calling it a crisis with possible global implications.

And, the UN health agency's Director-General Margaret Chan warned, signs that the outbreak was waning in its North American epicentre did not mean the worst was over.

There was "great uncertainty" about whether that "partly reassuring picture" would be maintained, she pointed out.

"We are meeting at a time of crisis that could have global implications," she said at a high-level meeting in Geneva on preparations for a pandemic.

Keiji Fukuda, acting assistant director-general, told the session that more than 7,500 people have now been infected with the strain that is a mixture of swine, bird and human viruses.

The organisation has not yet decided whether to begin producing a vaccine to combat the strain, Mr Fukuda said.

Production of vaccines against the new virus could disrupt the production of seasonal flu vaccines, he added.

Malaysia has just confirmed its first swine flu case; Peru has also registered its first case.

Belgium is the latest European nation to record a case.

Mexico, where the virus was first found and which has 2,656 confirmed cases, says it plans to seek compensation for the damages suffered because of the drop in tourism revenue as tourists stay away.

CVG have posted this about Game Informer Magazine


Quote
Game Informer is teasing two "huge" announcements it says will be revealed within the next 24 hours.

Speaking on its Twitter yesterday, the mag wrote: "tomorrow is going to be huge. Stay tuned for two HUGE exclusives!!" Note the double use of exclamation marks there.

The mag's editor-in-chief and fellow "tweeter" Andy McNamara backed up the tease his own Twitter last week: "In the last 24 hours I have seen 2 year defining things: one you will see shortly on our cover the other I can't speak of, both awesome," he said.

The mag's cover, in case you missed it, turned out to be the first info on Modern Warfare - which spilled onto the internet earlier this week.

Here's hoping one of the "year defining" announcements isn't Tonk Hawk and his plastic skateboard.

Microsoft's Aaron Greenberg has told Eurogamer that the information supposedly leaked about the platform holder's E3 showing is "completely uninformed".

"I can confirm that this post is completely uninformed and does not even come close to matching our news for E3," Greenberg told Eurogamer.

"You can't believe everything you read, but it is fun to see people trying to guess what will be shown at the show and we are excited to share our real news with everyone on June 1st."

Microsoft's conference kicks off at 10.30am PST (6.30pm BST) on 1st June, and we'll be there covering it live as usual.

The earlier supposed leak claimed that Metal Gear Solid 4 was on its way to Xbox 360, along with a motion controller called Xbox Fluid and various other unannounced projects.

http://uk.xbox360.ign.com/articles/977/977287p1.html

Quote
US,  April 28, 2009 - Don Matrtick, Microsoft's senior vice president for Interactive Entertainment Business at Microsoft (say that three times fast), has put out a statement through the Entertainment Software Association promising to kick off E3 in "blockbuster style." In fact, the senior vice president even went so far as to say that Microsoft's presence will, "completely transform how people think about home entertainment." That's a powerful statement. Here's the complete quote from Mattrick:

    "Microsoft is gearing up for a big presence at E3 which will completely transform how people think about home entertainment. We're excited about the momentum that is building in the industry in anticipation of our June 1st media briefing, which will kick off E3 in blockbuster style."

<meta name="author" content="KONAMI" />
<meta name="description" content="KOJIMA PRODUCTION &quot;NEXT&quot;">

so,there are the NEXT word,and also Metal Gear..whether this is a plant done to make the hits higher on the site i dunno...also the % loading before the screen appears is in Metal Gear style font


also for an April Fools joke,this picture was thrown everywhere



so,er whats going on??.....well,we'll find out in 4 days when Konami/Kojima announce it on the 18th


all speculation....but isn't this fun!!,LOL



EDIT:new rumour...yes,another

Raiden Themed DLC,Trophies and 360 MGS4(okay that last one isn't new)


http://ps3.kombo.com/article.php?artid=9993

Quote
I was emailed an interesting rumor earlier this morning concerning the upcoming Konami announcement coming from the Kojima team. Now, some of this information I have heard previously from outside sources, but with it now circulating a little more, I feel as though it should be shared.

The most recent rumors surrounding the upcoming Kojima announcement are quite minor when compared to a new game announcement. As of now, the latest speculation is that Konami will announce Raiden based DLC for the PS3. Coinciding with the DLC will also be the long awaited Trophy patch for MGS4. Players will take control of Raiden through a total of 2 new chapters. Whether or not this will take place during the events of MGS4 or will be something completely new isn't known.

It's also being rumored that MGS4 will officially be announced for the 360. To keep Sony and PS3 owners happy, the 360 won't see the game until Spring 2010. The 360 version will come packed with the DLC, but PS3 owners will have it exclusive for several months before the 360 title is released.

Too good to be true? I can see this happening. The 360 MGS4 rumor has been tossed around a lot lately, but I don't think Konami would tease this heavily for DLC alone. An announcement about DLC and the game going multiplatform would suggest the use of a teaser site and going the extra mile. Either way, we'll know for sure on Monday.
12511  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Sacred 2 finally gold! on: May 14, 2009, 07:31:16 PM
Kotaku have just reported that a patch is on its way

http://kotaku.com/5254610/console-sacred-2-could-use-a-little-fixing

Quote
CDV Software is quickly readying patches for the console versions of Sacred 2: Fallen Angel, fixing the online multiplayer of the PlayStation 3 version while making sure Xbox 360 customers get their pre-order bonuses.

If it seemed like the oft-delayed console version of Ascaron's action role-playing game was still a bit rushed, that's only because it was. Xbox 360 owners who pre-ordered the game from GameStop found that the redemption codes for their promised carrier imp bonus were not working, while PlayStation 3 users discovered that local co-operative game play couldn't be taken online as promised. CDV is currently actively working to fix these issues, according to updates scattered across their website and forums.

On top of these issues, over at Team Xbox, Sacred 2 community team management member Christiane assures forum-goers that a patch to implement a trading feature in live co-op will be implemented soon as well.

Sounds to me like the game wasn't quite finished when it shipped. Luckily w live in a time where console games are patched as easily if not easier than PC titles. Thanks to Paul for keeping us updated on the incoming fixes!



This isn't too bad for me as the European version(suprise,suprise) was delayed a month to June

if it does turn out to be Fable 3,i hope that this time you really can be different...because really the only difference you had from two heroes were either the sex of your hero,whether he was good or bad or what clothes he wore...i want choices in skin colour,i want choices in overbite,i want choices in those steely blue eyes...i want Xbox Vision camera to put me as the hero!!!!(and lose a few pounds) paranoid

a lot of people are complaining that it only has 24 players(no doubt more for PC).but i am very happy with 24 players....i remember Black Hawk Down on the Xbox1 with 50 players....fun for some,bit of a mess for me(just turns into a spawn killing frag fest)

Namco Bandai bought a 34% stake in the Atari Europe business in March last year, and is expected to pick up the remaining portion from parent Infogrames in the next month.

That's according to the latest issue of trade mag MCV, which reports that European sales and marketing staff are to be safely transferred to newly formed Distribution Partners - which will handle all Namco Bandai games in Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand from now on.

Atari's US division will remain active and become the publisher's sole HQ, says MCV, headed up by current CEO David Gardner.

Distribution Partners will even look to grow its headcount and strengthen its position as Europe's biggest games publisher.

"We believe that DP will become a wholly-owned Namco Bandai games company soon, but this process requires time and we will comment further when we have an anticipated closing date," Atari's European marketing boss David Miller told the trade mag.

What we heard: With the retirement of the infamous "Surfer Girl" last May, game news addicts have been searching for another leak-happy industry insider. They may have found one in Game Fork, the nom de tweet of someone claiming to be a well-placed "game journo." The person also appears to be British, since he claims to have "no links to Sony or SCEE"--Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, based in London--and follows Queen's English spelling rules.

Beginning last week, Game Fork has been twittering with a vengeance about a single subject: Microsoft's upcoming press event at the 2009 Electronic Entertainment Expo. "MS is about to stun E3 with their lineup," crowed the shadowy figure, who claims to have visited Microsoft's offices on May 5.

According to the truncated, 140-character-limited posts, Microsoft will use its E3 press gathering, which starts at 10:30 a.m. PDT on June 1, to unveil the following:

--The all-but-confirmed motion-sensing camera controller for the Xbox 360, titled "Xbox Fluid."

--Metal Gear Solid 4 + Oxide, the long-rumored Xbox 360 port of the best-selling PlayStation 3 stealth actioner and GameSpot's 2008 Game of the Year. The announcement will be the finale of the presentation, apparently, although the game may the subject of Kojima Productions' May 18 mystery announcement.

--A top-secret Konami exclusive for the Xbox 360. "NOBODY outside of Kon[ami] has been told what this is," claims Game Fork. (Emphasis in the original.)

--The second Xbox 360-exclusive downloadable episode for Grand Theft Auto IV, subtitled "Blood and a Four Leaf Clover." The title may be a reference to the GTAIV mission Three Leaf Clover,where protagonist Niko Bellic helps Irish mobster Packie McReary and his brothers pull off a bank robbery straight out of the film Heat. It's apparently due "this Christmas."

--A new project from Peter Molyneux's Lionhead Studios (Fable II), code-named "Richter," previously rumored to be revealed at E3.

--The official unveiling of the long-known-about Forza Motorsport 3, which will apparently be playable on the show floor.

--After an extended period out of sight, both APB and Alan Wake will make appearances. Game Fork describes the former as a "GTA Killer" and the latter as "somewhere 'tween The Shining and Misery. VERY Stephen King. ... Graphically stunning, massively open, incredibly engaging...and ***t-pant scary." (Emphasis in the original.)

--The elusive Splinter Cell: Conviction will also be on hand in preparation for its release later this year

--Lost Planet 2, Assassin's Creed 2, and BioShock 2 will all be shown off, as will Halo 3: ODST, which was yanked from Microsoft's E3 2008 briefing at the last minute.

The official story: "Microsoft does not comment on rumors and speculation." --Microsoft rep.

Bogus or not bogus?: Although it comes from an untested source, the leak is a little too specific to be totally bogus. The world will see exactly how much is bogus in just 20 days. Just remember: The last time an Xbox 360 version of MGS4 was rumored, it turned out to be Metal Gear Solid Touch for the iPhone.

For an idea of what's in store on June 1, check out Microsoft's E3 2008 press conference, viewable below:


if this all turns out to be true i for one will be happy,although there are not many real suprises in the list...so someone who isnt as easy to please,may be disappointed...but as i said their source doesnt seem very reliable...Gamefork

notice the coloured buttons both at the top of the neck and at the bottom

looks nice, but my RB2 guitar has the same buttons on top and bottom so I'm not sure what's special about that bit.

Ok, so I just re-watched the scene in X-Men 2 where Stryker's er, strike force, invades the school, and his first words to Wolverine were "What has it been, fifteen years?"

So how old does that make Scott?



well,Scott was first in school writing lines in 'wolverine'...so if its 15 years later for xmen 2,the actual actor playing Scott(James Marsden) was 30 when he played Scott in xmen 2...i dont think thats too far off,i know that your schools are different than UK schools(we leave school at 16...to go to college or uni,if we wish to)


X-men 2 when Magneto escaped was great..but yeah i guess there always were gonna be mistakes

the third movie was the weakest,but i still thought it was a lot of fun


i am not up on Sabretooth's history,after the events of Wolverine...did he go feral or something?..i say this because of how he looks in Xmen 1
