  1. Are those numbers worldwide or just USA? If its worldwide and includes boxed copies for fallout, then aren't those numbers pretty poor considering Bethesda announced sales of 5 million at the beginning of November. That would mean pc accounted for about 6% of sales.
  2. Oh god, does this mean garnett's going to cry again
  3. I see Shawn Elliot has taken it upon himself to take down EvilGarnett with some rhymes. He seems to be losing though, which is a bit embarrassing
  4. I think the thinking is that apart from having to pay for Xbox live, it is a better service than what the ps3 offers, especially when the ps 3 launched. If you don't have to pay for it, then that coupled with things like the ps 3 coming out later, gaining achievement points etc meant that Xbox live became embedded as the go to place for that particular community.Therefore whenever a multi-platform game was being discussed on podcasts etc, frequently it would be the 360 version.
  5. No, he said that microsoft gave out free xbox live accounts to all journalists. Because they all know each other, this quickly meant they had 40 people on their friends list. Therefore if a gaming journalist was going to be playing something, they'd be more likely to play the 360 version, because all their friends were there. Sounds fair enough.
  6. The Gamers With Jobs podcast is usually a good listen. seems to have some decent guests on it as well. Ken Levine & Jeff Green have both been on a few times and seem to be there just because they like the show rather than to sell something. This week had the lead designer from Civ 4 whose now working on Spore (forget his name).

    Too Human

    The latest Developer Diary for this is up on Xbox Live. Got me really hyped about this. It has some fake documentary as part of it, but I really want to see the next part of it!
  8. Tried this when Factions came out, but for some reason only got to Lvl 8 before giving up. However I've cancelled my Wow subscription and want to get into something else, so am going to give this another bash. Hopefully will get hooked this time.
  9. Had hoped this summer to clear my unfinished games before the q4 releases, however, currently I'm playing Zelda TP, RE4 Wii, Bioshock, FFXII, Okami, Paper Mario Thousand Year Door and Titan Quest. Given there's only about 3 weeks until Halo3 comes out, it's fair to say I've utterly failed. At least I think I've finally managed to shake my Wow addiction, so things should start to move now.

    Viva Piñata

    It's a bit shit that you can't have more than 1 game save. One of the reasons I bought this was because my wife loved Animal Crossing, but we can't both have our own games of this.
  14. That can't be the reason for the Enchanted Arms though. I think 7/10 was one of the higher scores that it got.
  15. Gears better than Zelda? Hmmm
  16. http://www.1up.com/do/newsStory?cId=3154916 Did anyone see the review? I saw on Metacritic they gave it 5/10, but haven't seen the actual text.
  17. http://www.nintendo-europe.com/NOE/en/GB/h...equestid=160345 For what it's worth, they have 'Wii - Coming 2006' on the European Nintendo Website.
  18. I've just watched this weeks, and you've got to hand it to them. Every week I think they can't get any worse, and yet the next one comes round and they manage to top it.
  19. My understanding is that when the original DS was launched, it just used the GBA charger. Therefore if you imported the machine from the US, whilst you couldn't use the US charger without an adapter, it didn't matter as you could just use your old GBA charger. With the DS Lite however, it uses a different charger from previous models, so you can't use an old charger anymore. As was always the case, you'll probably need an adapter to use it in a foreign country.
  20. It's good. It can be a bit cheesy, and it's obvious they want to be liked by the games industry, but they come across as genuinely enthusiastic about games. I think the bits where they discuss the games works really well, as it gets away from this idea that a game is either brilliant or shit. Catchy theme as well
  21. PD0 definitely has tearing in it. It's a joke considering its a flagship title.l I hope this isn't going to be a standard issue with 360 games, as the FFxi beta has no v-sync either
  22. Rubbish advert. 1.It preaches to the converted. If you don't know anything about Nintendo and the DS, this will just pass you by. 2. It doesn't put any context around what it's talking about. Its like expecting people to buy a new car by just showing them the tyres.
  23. The PS1 was the best selling console for months after the PS2 launched. It continued to have more floor space in shops dedicated to it than any other console for ages. I think its a bit of a stretch to compare the PS1 performance to that of the Gamecube. They've got more space dedicated to educational software than Gamecube in my local Game!
