  1. I take it that the PSP Go figures are bundled together with the 3000/2000 by NPD? It would be interesting to see what the split is.
  2. From a sales figures perspective, yes, it is a disaster. They must, however, be making a tidy profit on the hardware despite that, especially considering how old the tech is is now and the ludicrously high price they charge for it.
  3. NeoGAF, for all its insecure fanboys, still delivers the goods.
  4. I've seen lots of videos of that floating around but never played it. It's (not that) amazing to see that the animations on it are still far beyond what PES can do. As for the Ubisoft game, I'm willing to give it a go. I seem to remember enjoying one of the Fifa Street games on Xbox despite the awful reviews.
  5. Yeah, good luck with Nintendo not making a sequel to one its biggest selling handheld titles ever.
  6. Old men, this is the anti-Hawx (Ugh!) and thank the nonexistent Lord for that. This is a arcade perfect conversion of a silky smooth, 60 frames per second and quite frankly bonkers jet fighter game that, all things being well, should be priced under a tenner. Under a tenner! This would have cost £40 on the Dreamcast! If that doesn't make you jump for joy and start high fiving everyone in sight then there will be no more joy for you here.
  7. That looks like pure, vintage, Sega. Fantastic. Stick to this sort of thing boys, arcade games are what you're best at.
  8. I've never played on an Atari ST. All my friends had C64s or Amigas in the late eighties and early nineties, in fact, I don't think anybody in my school had one either. Hell, there was even a kid with a bloody Acorn Archimedes down my street.
  9. Update! January Mario Kart Wii - £34.99 (I know I could have saved a tenner online, but it was an urgent purchase for a family gathering) Halo 3 ODST - £18.99 2100 Microsoft Space Bucks - £15 Poundland Wii Wheel - I can't remember. Total £69.98 I buckled; it was there as I walked past the stacks of Toffifee, packs of 18 leaky AA batteries and a surprising selection of Sinatra and Elvis DVDs.
  10. Wouldn't it be easier/cheaper to put them on one card or is there a size limit on DS cards?
  11. Fifa. All the parts are there now but it just doesn't do it for me and I don't know why. Every time I try a demo, for the last few versions anyway, I think, 'this is bloody great!' then the full game comes and I can't get into it or persevere with it. A shame because PES has had a few shocking years to say the least (2010 shows signs of a recovery but still creaks) and yet there are no football games out there other than the big two. In other news, I'm in the 'wish I could like Zelda' camp as well.
  12. There were those Help charity game compilations on PS1 and PS2 and I saw re-branded 'double packs' of Playstation 2 games a couple of years ago. Nothing on the scale of the old Imagine or Ocean boxes in recent years, though.
  13. January Mario Kart Wii - £34.99 (I know I could have saved a tenner online, but it was an urgent purchase for a family gathering) Halo 3 ODST - £18.99 2100 Microsoft Space Bucks - £15 Total £68.98 That's me done until June probably.
  14. Online gaming is one thing that has passed me by; I just don't get it. I sometimes watch my 15 year old brother play Call of Duty and it's mesmerising the sheer skill displayed but it has obviously come at the price of not going outside for months. I see a lot of myself in him when I was that age - the enthusiasm, dedication and commitment to a new big title from day one. I have to play games in small chunks, bite-size pieces that are sometimes a mere level at a time, before my interest wanes and I have to do something else. If it weren't for XBLA games and the Wii I might have not even bothered with this generation.
  15. My Halo 3 save fucked up on that GHASTLY, orange, Flood level. It would take forever to load and then it would come up with a message on the screen as it started like, 'Cannot *something* *something*', booting me right back to the title screen. I hated every minute of that level which is a shame because, up until that point, the game had been great. Why do the all the Halo games (only just started ODST, so can't include that yet) fall apart so badly at the end? Oh, and I want bots in Reach, Bungie.
  16. I think that it has narrowed 2 million since the launch of the PS3 Slim (September???) The release of Final Fantasy XIII in Japan has given it an extra boost on top of that as well. The battle for second place is still on!
  17. I just hope they can make a game this time where the last few levels don't completely suck. DISCLAIMER: This opinion is based on having not played ODST yet.
  18. Aye, too right. I was there with the Saturn and if it weren't for the quite frankly brilliant (most of the time, considering the technical limitations) home conversions of those Model 2 arcade classics, I would have regretted my purchase. I sure as hell didn't buy the fucking thing for Clockwork Knight and Bug, that's for sure. The DC was the only time they realised their strength - amazing arcade games - and thus it was the arcade in the home I had always dreamed of. I don't hold any hope of them releasing this for consoles to be honest, as mentioned above they seem too preoccupied making terrible Sonic games and trying to be a limited version of Gametap with http://www.playsega.co.uk/ Man, browsing the Sega bit of the System16 site makes me want to cry.
  19. If Sega don't do this they are the biggest spackers in the world. Oh wait, they already are. Seriously, though, if they can release a port of a niche game like Virtua On Oratorio Tangram on XBLA then surely Dayton, er, I mean Sega Racing Whatever is an open goal. And Sega Rally. And Virtua Fighter (2). And Virtua Racing. And Crazy Taxi. And Jambo Safari. And Fighting Vipers. And Motor Raid. And Manx TT. And Virtua Cop. And Planet Harriers. And Cosmic Smash. And F355 Challenge. And Wild Riders. And Scud Race. And After Burner Climax. And Sega Race TV. And and and and and probably hundreds more from their 3D arcade history I want but can't remember right now.
  20. It happens usually when a zombie has just climbed down from something and starts charging, but also occasionally after a melee attack or when it becomes aware of you after shuffling or standing around. Like giant frying pan said, it is probably just a case of certain animations being unfinished before the full release.
  21. Uh, it's packed in with every Wii console outside of Japan and the Wii itself has had a massive boost in sales from the recent price cut. Nothing strange about that at all. Oh look, the battle for second place is now on.
  22. Y'know, twatting zombies around the head with a frying pan in a Reeves and Mortimer style is never going to get old. I do hope the ice skating animations get fixed, though - some of the zombies look like extras from Breakdance: The Movie.

    FIFA 10

    Is the AI in the full game improved from the demo? I mean, do they actually score a variety of goals rather than mainly from crosses?
  25. Troublegum

    FIFA 10

    The unconfirmed rumour is that it's coming 23rd September.
