  1. Mine turned up about 11.30 this morning.

    Xbox 360

    Similar things are happening in America: some stores are just doubling the price of the packs, no extras.
  3. People I've added who haven't added me, and their truncated and misspelt user names: mikef riccardo earl alisdair spunky monkey redsquirrel graham s mr square roskelld charles glo baz morcerf anewman pulsemyne grav0 shepperton jack dinsdale cyhwuhx don rosco rowan m carleton jiroczech teyene garwoofoo My friend code is 107434 034462, if you want someone you can consistently beat.
  4. That's the date on my order confirmation email, I think I may have placed the order on the day before though (Sunday).
  5. Preordered the premium pack on Oct 3.

    Mario Kart Ds

    This may already be known, but I was kind of expecting the wireless configuration to be stored on each cartridge. Well, it's not, it's stored on the DS itself, which should save some fannying about.

    Mario Kart Ds

    So far I've had one online race with two others, and came second on every track, and so second overall. My stats say won one lost one, so I presume it's how many people you've beaten / lost to rather than races won and lost - does this sound right? It's a fantastic game, by the way. The kind of game that makes you want to burst into applause.
  8. Mario Kart: 107434 034462 Be warned, I'm terrible at this game.

    Ah, sorry. The confusing thing is that there isn't a red "buy or reserve" button on the premium pack page, which is obviously sold out, but it's still there on the core. Apologies.

    They look like they're still taking pre-orders for the core pack, and this from their premium pack page:

    If anyone's desperate for a 360 on launch, Argos are still offering the core pack bundled with PDZ and King Kong for £280.
  12. Don't know if this will be use to anyone, but I've got a Netgear WGT624 (providing the wifi network) connected to a Netgear DG834 (connected to the internet, provides IPs etc), and it all works fine. I could try the DG834 on it's own later on if anyone would be interested. Don't worry too much about the star ratings, I think if it's got one star it'll work but might need some fiddling with settings etc (see here)
  13. Picked this up last night (bless Curry's and their vague grasp of the concept of release dates), and after my initial worries about wifi - Nintendo has rated one of my Netgear routers as 1-star - it just worked without having to change anything. I have quite a weird setup with 2 routers (don't ask) but it handled it fine.
  14. Most of the advice I've seen for getting Mario Kart to work online has been along the lines of: - Give the DS a static IP - Put the DS in the DMZ - Try different channels Here's someone's guide from the Nintendo forums to set up a Netgear router, it might be worth a try on other brands?

    Well, you'd hope so. Looking at the compatability ratings (here), Netgear generally seems to do quite badly. But! Looking at this message, they're looking into it: And here's someone who's had success with his Netgear router, with details of how he did it. Part of Nintendo's faq worries me, about opening up your firewall... ...is this safe?

  17. From Kotaku: which I read as supporting HDDVD as standard, rather than a future revision. I *really* want this to be true...
  18. So it's only mentioned the once? How many times would have suited you? Actually, no. No I don't. Imagine seeing the following story five times every month: "Small minority of players of latest ambitious PC game are experiencing temporary problems: patch and driver updates awaited" Not interesting, and I think you can safely assume it holds true for all PC games, unfortunately.
  19. Now, I've only skimmed the issue, but: p20: "The launch of Half-Life 2 ... dogged with problems" p24: In Continue / Quit - "Quit: HL2 authentication" p27: An entire RedEye column about the installation (incidentally, so what if his views "do not (necessarily) represent Edge"? Are you imagining readers thinking to themselves "Hmm, RedEye is 'Installing Half-Life 2', is he? I'd be interested in reading some more about HL2, but I'll skip this as I don't want my brain sullied with possibly-non-Edge views thankyouverymuch"? They still printed it, didn't they?) p126: Critical letter about Steam, with Edge's response: "Steam ... has made life painful for hundreds, if not thousands, of PC owners" p128: Half-page cartoon entirely about Steam installation and sound stuttering problems If Edge are trying to cover something up, they're doing quite a bad job of it.
  20. GTA:SA's mark also includes* this pearler from "Christ Centered Game Reviews" which suggests it is a "digitized form of Satan". *EDIT: oops, no it doesn't. Still, interesting review all the same.
  21. I love adventure games, but this article on Who Killed Adventure Games? does make a valid point about where some of the games were going.
  22. So is Ridge Racer going to be controlled with the touch screen? If so, I hope it works better than I'm imagining it will.
  23. IGN Review According to gamerankings.com, PSE2 Magazine (?) gave it 84%

    I just got the same email, but I only ordered it yesterday (& it was posted yesterday too). Bizarre
