  1. Yep, here's a full list of games you can use the CD keys for.
  2. Sounds hopeful... Ron Gilbert did some work on the design of the new episodes: http://grumpygamer.com/8280380
  3. This is quite interesting, according to Penny Arcade, "The same reviewer who gave us the 4 in Edge gave us a 68% in a different UK magazine."
  4. Ah, that'll be it then, cheers. Game own everything nowadays!
  5. OK what the HELL is going on. Just got this email... Which is lovely, except I didn't pre-order from Game! I'm sat at work hoping my Gameplay order has turned up at home. I don't have an account with game.co.uk, and trying the "lost password" thing on the Game website, it doesn't recognise the email address they sent that email to. I'm confused
  6. Just tried this, it's superb. Some of the pictures people have made with it are stunning.
  7. Half Life 2 with a portal gun!
  8. Are you broadcasting an SSID? I couldn't get DSOrganize (or any other homebrew) to connect without it, but commercial stuff worked fine either way.
  9. Here's another chart from GAF (via Qt3). It's just the monthly global sales, but it really emphasises the trends.
  10. Well if I was reporting these figures for the BBC, and had to choose a headline to somehow sum them up, I'd definitely go with "PlayStation 3 sales boost in US"
  11. Here's the story link: http://www.maxconsole.net/?mode=news&newsid=18778

    The part about the spontaneous discussion between strangers could well be true. Here's a leaked memo written by the VP of Corporate Communications for health insurance company Capital BlueCross, who went to see the film:
  13. But what's an "8's worth of fun" exactly? It doesn't mean anything until you put it in context. For example, if you're reviewing say, STALKER, and think that it's better than Prey but worse than Half Life 2, surely it should get a mark higher than Prey but lower than HL2, as a guide for the readers? I think scoring on a relative scale within a magazine is fine, and they do have different audiences. If a friend asks you to recommend her a book or a film, you'd take her tastes into account, and wouldn't recommend something that you know she'll hate. But I also want to use websites like metacriti
  14. Someone asked about the AI cheating on the official forums. The response from Steve Fawkner...
  15. According to the spec sheet, yes that should work as far as the switching goes, though I've not personally tried the auto-switching for S-Video. Don't know about PS2 / S-Video output though. (By the way, cheapest I found the scart switcher was about £50 at maplin if you're thinking of getting one)
  16. I've posted this before, but for people with RGB / auto-switching problems, here's an expensive solution. I use this scart block at home, and by plugging the Wii into Input 6, it works fine even with WiiConnect24. I think this is because Input 6 doesn't check the auto-switching pin, but instead monitors the video output when deciding whether to switch input.
  17. What? Are you seriously saying that you can't criticize something without having tried it yourself first? Does this extend to "making judgements" on videogames - that unless you've made one or two yourself, it'd be unfair to judge other people's efforts?
  18. £425! Oh dear. This is going to be a catastrofuck for Sony.
  19. Spaceland! Enjoyable book, that, I'd recommend it. From what I remember, the caste/class system thing was part of the original Flatland.
  20. As hub2 mentioned, some homebrew needs the GBA slot, including Lemmings:

    EDGE 171

    Badly written? Out of interest, what do you consider to be good writing about games?
  22. Sorry I might have got that wrong then. Does the widescreen switching work? I bought one a few years ago, and there was *something* that wasn't wired through, forcing me to get the cheaper first one.
  23. 1 works fine. 3, if I remember correctly, DOESN'T pass through RGB signals. Avoid! EDIT2: Maybe, maybe not: Xevious and I both think this won't do RGB, but djezz has a slightly different looking model that does.
  24. I've got this one from maplin, about £50. It's pretty good, auto-switching, plenty of inputs, and I've found you can solve the Wii's Scart-always-on problem by making sure the Wii is input 6 (a special input that apparently uses something other than scart control to determine if a signal is being sent).
  25. Politics is showbusiness for ugly people, as they say.
