15681  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: no zelda:LTTP on VC for me...but.. on: January 26, 2007, 12:23:14 PM
thought you guys got games on the tuesday?

and yeah mario world would be nice


played mario kart 64,.....i think i was expecting the mario kart that i have on GBA,but thats super circuit or something like that...but this one is even better,i forgot about this one...i did have it for the 64,looks quite good still
15682  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / no zelda:LTTP on VC for me...but.. on: January 26, 2007, 07:08:44 AM
here in the UK,our VC titles are just a little different than yours...but not that different,and i was expecting to get zelda:a link to the past today(our VC titles come out on a friday)...but,a little pissed off,it wasnt on there

but all is not lost,as we got 4 titles today

1st:super probector alien rebels-SNES-800points(no idea what this is)

2nd:soldier blade-turbo grafix-600points(again..what?)

3rd:street fighter 2 world warrior-SNES-800points(i could of sworn this was already out)

and


wait for it


4th:mario kart 64-N64(obviously,LOL)-1000points

so,okay at least todays titles arent a total washout....still want zelda,but mario kart will keep me going

1 question

whats the difference between the street fighter 2 world warrior on the VC..and the street fighter 2 game on xbox live arcade?..as i have the XBLA one,wondering whether i should get the VC one

also,i tried the news channel..just in case,the machine updated(which suprised me)..but the actual channel hasnt started yet(i heard it was tomorrow,27th)..so maybe you guys would like to at least update your machine ready for the new news channel...just incase you didnt know..unless that update was for something else
15683  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diamonds in the rough on: January 25, 2007, 03:04:54 PM
definetly quake 4,i will have to get back to that one day...especially how you get a bonus disc with quake 2 on it


for me,it was on xbox1 called armed and dangerous,a lucasarts game,it got bad reviews here but i got it and loved it,it was also funny as hell(as with most lucasarts games=monkey island)

So, can I start a thread every time Sony offers a lackluster game on their download service?
If it is as lame as this, please do.
But it's not.  TWO cheap (you could place the emphasis on either the 'two' or 'cheap') and one FREE pack that extend the gameplay of Lumines at a very reasonable price.

To each their own I guess.  But I wouldn't consider this release 'lame.'  That racecar one (the last one for 2006 I think...) - now THAT was lame.


lummnies on xbox live arcade costs 10 more than on PSP,as the PSP version is now on platinum...thats here in the UK anyway
15686  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Crackdown Demo Delayed on: January 24, 2007, 03:21:52 PM
no,you cant assign them or anything,not that i know of...but say,you are in a gang fight,and they are passing in thier car,they will stop and help out by shooting at the gangmembers...and they actually hit them as well

other times you will be going around the streets and the cops will already be fighting with some gang members....then thats up to you if you want to stop to help
15687  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Live Arcade Game This Week Is..... on: January 24, 2007, 03:18:40 PM
lummnies is the biggest rip off on marketplace,100points??? those packs should be free..not100 then 300 when the offer ends
1200 for one part of the game,600 for the other part of the game....100 for the packs at the moment,then they go to 300 after feb 21st..and the free one goes to 150 after feb 21st...

robbing bastards

i thought the counter started at 30 minutes when you take on the first boss...or something...before then,the counter didnt show up at all


i just played it again,and after you get to level 2(2 stars or something)...that is when you have the 30 minute countdown(it starts then),so as long as you explore and dont shoot or collect things,you could have as long as you want( i guess in theory)


i am hoping there are more things to do round the city,i have seen races...hopfully there will be more stuff like that

i miss the old dino crisis games,i loved them,and finished number 2 i think,although i never played number 3..set in space or something
15692  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Late to the table, better game, Godfather (360) or Just Cause (360) on: January 23, 2007, 05:04:51 PM
oh yeah thats right,you can buy in game money..something like 100k or 200k..for 60-100points....thats just dumb,anyway if you take over a few buisnesses,you can make that money in a short while anyway(im getting 8k every game day at the moment,and i have only extorted a few businesses
15693  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: DQ9- the first "two cartridge" game? on: January 23, 2007, 05:02:10 PM
didnt number 9 just come out for the ps2?...if not which one was it?

if the picture is fake,is the actual game coming to DS?,if so i'm in
15694  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Crackdown Demo Impressions on: January 23, 2007, 04:57:47 PM
yeah,on further inspection,it is i think an alien head that is over the bad guys head...and not a big P,lol

having some trouble on the targeting(by pressing LT)..when i have killed someone and i repress the target button to kill someone else,it keeps locking onto the dead body i have just killed


there is also a timer,i think from when you kill the first ganglord/boss..or at least i only noticed it from then..(30mins)

anyway got my agility and strength up,and i am jumping about all over the show now....oh and playing baywatch on the beach...what with the running an all
15695  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Late to the table, better game, Godfather (360) or Just Cause (360) on: January 23, 2007, 03:16:06 PM
funny i have just started replaying godfather on 360,as when i bought it i put the disc in for an hour and that was it

i am really enjoying it,i love the movies so this is great seeing both scenes from the films and scenes that are inbetween..the cutscenes are great and the character models spot on,unfortunately though al pacino was doing scarface game at the same time( i also heard he wanted a shit load of money)so they got someone else in to model for the part of michael,but it still works

new york city,although a bit drab,is still great and big. stay away from the crap EA microtransactions(get the free one though)
someone said it isnt that much different from the xbox 1 version,only with a few more missions...i guess the graphics are prolly better(but i wouldnt be suprised with these graphics on an xbox 1)


just cause is also a great game....the island(s) is really,really big...and of course,you have the freedom of the skies when you take an airplane of chopper into the air.......i dont know but taking a plane to its highest peak,and jumping out,just to hear the calm as you fall..is pretty eerie..and the draw distance is good when falling

some of the achievements are quite interesting to get as well(1000ft base jump thing i am thinking off)


damn...not sure which game you should get,they both should be in the pre-owned bin by now,so ..if you can afford them both get them both,LOL......its a good time to go for these games actually
15696  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Wii] Super Paper Mario on: January 23, 2007, 03:05:24 PM
i really hope it comes out in april....i want a game for the Wii(its only been turned on once a week to look at the new VC games)...and i heard that mario galaxy and metroid had been delayed
15697  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Wii] Today's VC release on: January 23, 2007, 02:54:46 PM
i'll definetly be getting a link to the past..i have it on GBA,and finished it on GBA..but its still getting bought,that is if me in britain get the same VC downloads this friday


and yes,i would love to see chrono trigger..as i havent played it either..it wasnt even released here!!

EDIT: according to this page,zelda is the only release for you guys this week....but still,best week altogether up to now,lol

15698  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Crackdown Demo Delayed on: January 23, 2007, 02:52:05 PM
okay,i have just downloaded this demo,took two hours,LOL...its 1.24 gig,and with everyman and his dog downloading it at the same time,thats why it was so long to download

the game is pretty good,took a few minutes to get it together and figure what the fuck was going on,the streets are pretty chaotic...but its a pretty tight game...decent difficulty(i had it on tough...the easier of the 3 difficulty levels)

the city is pretty well detailed and really big,and thats just the part where you play inthe demo,the whole map looks massive(prolly not san andreas massive,but still big)

the story is,is that you are a cop,and as said the streets are kinda in riots,with gangs popping up everywhere,you are not alone though,there are plenty of other cops about

you level up,so to speak by shooting the bad guys,you get orbs from them and they automatically zoom to you when you have killed someone(like devil may cry if you want),after killing a few dozen i levelled twice,and my shooting became much better,i am only guessing that your athletics will improve as well(as you cant jump as far as you can on the trailers)

there are quite a few characters to choose from as well....maybe 8 or 9...not sure what if anything the difference is,no doubt there will be

you start off in the police station,if you want to call it that,in the garage and you can choose your vehicle....2 seater,4 wheel drive etc...then you drive out of the garage ,jumping out,like the batmobile exiting the batcave,the driving wasnt that bad,but i kept trying to angle the camera so i could actually see if anything was in front of me...hopefully i will get more used to that as time goes by...anyway i soon ditched the car..and proceeded on foot

there are a number of obsticles(SP?)you can pick up and throw...cant really say i tried it that many times though...i had a gun!!!

seems the main aim of the game is to liberate the police supply depos scattered throughout town that have been taken over by the gangs...then there is like an easy way of getting around the town through the depos

the gangs are indicated by what looks like a big yellow P...which in my mind stands for PUNK...(make my day,LOL)

and when you die,if you die,you regenerate at a supply depot...that you have liberated,the chief talks to you though ...i dunno,walkie talkie or ear piece..and says something about its okay if you die because you have clones...yeah whatever george lucas!!

plenty of weapons to pick up when the enemy has been killed,and then if you take that weapon to a supply depot,it will become a choice of weapon later on

anyway,i am enjoying the demo,and look forward to buying it

15699  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: cod3 map pack now up.*dont get it yet* on: January 21, 2007, 01:53:46 PM
well they have taken the pack of the marketplace now incase anyone else does download it

we get a few posts on xbox.com telling us mainly the same thing(working on it,and working closely with microsoft)..but they said they will next update us on monday...so why its taking so long,some really BIG pile of shit must of hit the fan...mybe they have to start the maps of from scratch,i dont know,hopefully this can be a warning to Treyarch and future developers and even microsoft..as all things on the marketplace are meant to be tested at first...doesnt look like the case this time
15700  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [NDS] How many dead pixels do you have? on: January 21, 2007, 01:49:50 PM
eugh...no i havent got any dead pixels on my DS lite or my PSP and never had any on my first version of the DS either,and hopefully i never will have

i would say change it,incase more of them start to pop up,you shouldn't have to put up with it,no matter where they are on the screen
15701  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Console Game of the Year on: January 21, 2007, 02:39:05 AM
as much as i would like to click on final fantasy 12..it hasntt been released here yet(our magazines have given it 10/10 though)

gears of war was okay,but the story wasnt long enough(or gave anything away about emergance day)

zelda is what i clicked on...47 hrs it took me to complete,and i enjoyed every minute
15702  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Final Fantasy XIII Playable Demo for this Summer on: January 19, 2007, 06:38:32 AM
no doubt me in britain wont get it....as we didnt get the playable FF12 demo...but what am i talking about,i would have to get a ps3 anyway...and summer just isnt gonna happen for me...maybe after christmas
15703  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: cod3 map pack now up.*dont get it yet* on: January 19, 2007, 06:36:28 AM
yeah that was 1200 points and had some known maps but in the dark(as well as other stuff i think)...i actually bought the game after that pack came out and was gonna pay for the pack...but didnt like the game...maybe when i try to get into it again...maybe....doubt it though


well,just got back in from work....and there is still no progress on the COD3 maps...they have said that the maps we have downloaded,are not valid maps...so we will be downloading a new map pack...if and when they are available.(i heard splinter cell had a similar problem in the past and took a month to fix!!)

my concern is,that if the map pack i downloaded,isnt valid,how will they know who paid and who didnt...i know its on your account...but how will that come accross when downloading the new pack?...because i am not paying again!!!

all in all...as you can imagine,i and many others ,especially on xbox.com...are pissed
15704  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Best Controller Ever? Also: Gesture Based Gaming. What's its Impact? on: January 19, 2007, 06:30:53 AM
360 controller

triggers,mean more comfortable for your index fingers...analogue stick placements(think nintendo got there first with that part though...not sure,maybe xbox 1).

but to note i also preferred xbox 1 small controller over the duelshock(not the first xbox 1 controller though)..again it was the triggers and analogue sticks on that

15707  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / cod3 map pack now up. AGAIN on: January 18, 2007, 01:04:09 PM
cod3 map pack is now up on marketplace,as i am a big fan i have downloaded and paid for these maps

but i have just tried to create a game after the download,and the new maps are not there....last weeks free map is there...so i dont know whats up

but anyway,they are up now,850 MB size,800 points price


EDIT:everyone else who has downloaded the map packs,are having the same problem,seems you download them,but they just arent there...so,hold on some if you were thinking of downloading the pack

EDIT:EDIT:treyarch are now looking into the problem apparently..*sigh*

i usually re-read the hobbit and the rings trilogy every year...great books(lets hope that the hobbit film can be sorted out soon)...im on stephen kings at the moment(if you liked LOTR,try the dark tower books1-7)


RS:V is not bad,better than i thought it would be...prolly a great game for big fans of the franchise

Then you'd have to buy a PS3.

LOL,yeah i know....just for MGS4,FF13 and now ghostbusters

I played it for about 10 minutes last night and felt like I almost had him. (Green Eyes is the big armadillo-lookin bug with yellow spots on both sides and on his head, right? You fight him indoors?) I got all the spots on his flanks and the four on his head and then a bigger spot opened up to his brain but I died before I could shoot it.


i think you only need one shot,to that spot and then its dead...thats what happened to me anyway...but if that is the case...thats some hard luck for you,as that boss is a pain...some later bosses were much easier than green eye i thought

cant get over how what a great game oblivion has been for me,the game was great and massive on its own,but with all the downloads its a game that has me coming back every few months

one concern

quarter of the game?.....is that gonna fill my hard drive?...i only have 3.9 left at the moment(FF11 6-7 gigs on it as well you see)

still great news though....wasnt it 800 points for the last download?....wonder how much this will be....i dont want to think about that

Why do they bother with non-white skins in this game.  I just don't get that.

well there are indoor levels as well...no snow


and sorry papasmurf...i'm no where near there yet,i have  actually been replaying the earlier levels to kill the worm or get the letters for the achievements

been playing a lot more online,the maps are good,they all seem to have a lot of tunnels and winding corridors that on first play,you prolly wont notice..the bonus one battleground is a decent affair....not mega great

rank 20 now...you get different skins for every 10 ranks you achieve for your online character model...and apparently when you hit rank 30,you get an actual new character model
