  1. The Cube version has its fair share of glitches....the lip syncing is miles off and in one cut scene the dialogue just cut out completely...thankfully the sub titles were on. These minor bugs aside however the scenery is far more impressive the the original....the design of the castle flits neatly between gothic disrepair and arabian style splendor. The change is characterisation is a little tragic....but the game itself is a blast...and just as much fun as the original. Perhaps Ubi would have been better to divorce this from the PoP name as whilst the gameplay is recognisably a tweaked version of the original, the setting is alien. Shame it seems it was a little rushed for the Xmas release however...bugs and presentation glitches aside, the story is flawed and there is no real logic to the Princes sudden regaining of his time control powers.. Still I'm really enjoying the game but it is inferior to Sands of Time...
  2. Ho hum.... more modern games are rubbish talk. Nonsence I say. This generation has produced just as many classics imho. Personal votes for classic status: Tales of Symphonia - this gens Secret of Mana I reckon; beautiful, classic stylings and wonderfully playable. Xenosaga episode 1 - epic stiring space opera that demands to be continued, excellent battle system too La Pucelle Tatics - I maintain this is better then Disgaea, sufficent twists on SRPG formula but better characterisation and plot. Probably my most enjoyable gaming of the year.
  3. Actually no...Rogue Agent is only as much as sequel to EoN as in its has a tenuous Bond connection, infact its about as much as sequel to EoN as it is to Goldeneye. Very different game, genre etc etc amen. I for one also enjoyed EoN - typical EA style and panache and good fun, shame the driving sections were irritating. TBH however I doubt there will be a sequel in a similar style...it sold fairly mediocre amounts for a Bond game and with the current confusion over who the next Bond will be I suspect we'll be stuck in first personland for a while with the licence. Oh and only The Two Towers was by Stormfront (to the earlier poster who I forget), Return of the King was internal EA.
  4. Couple sof my fave indie floor fillers The Longpigs - She said They Might be Giants - Birdhouse in Your Soul Placebo - Special K Suede - Metal Mickey
  5. Yeah but they might just release Mario Sunshine Revolution and everyone will buy it anyway. Hmmm well its working for the DS....
  6. See here's the thing...the Cube isn't dead (in Europe sure...but world wide no) So plenty of revenue to be had from sales of the two biggest Nintendo franchises. Do you see?
  7. Damn it Vgplus.ca are still sticking to the 30th Nov US release *sniff* Just for once it doesn't pay to import...
  8. oops....missed that bit! But then again Star Ocean and Skys have hardly been big sellers now have they? Infact FF aside J RPGs seem to sell very badly in Europe....probably becuase all us obsessives import them on US release I suppose!
  9. Because without releasing the first game no-one would know whats going on... This is a proper continuous story series....unlike Star Ocean or Final Fantasy...methinks Xeno 2 would sell very little if released on its own
  10. I quite like what I've seen of the new graphical style...although the loss of the epic soundtrack is a big shame. But hey I may like... My love for the original is great enough to make me desire this plenty either way. URTV trio? Rubedo and Jr are the same person right? Anyway more Albedo can hardly be a bad thing....
  11. Winter 2005? It had better not be....
  12. Well I'm bloody awful so count me in Gamertag: dreamylildream
  13. Damn Ed said it for me! Xenosaga remains one of the finest games I've ever played....wonderful stuff. I started a thread very similar to this on Suikoden III - just couldn't get on with it at all. My recommendation is give up and go play Tales of Symphonia like I did...now there is an RPG deserving of eating your life
  14. Bah make a sequel to La Pucelle will you Nippon Ichi Prier needs to return
  15. Hmmm methinks there should be a category for Japanese Strat RPGs - very much a genre in their own right imho. Guess whose nomintaing himself for prime nerd there. (although no doubt someone on here will have outlevelled me on disgaea....bah sure I've played and finished more of them then ya....ahem )
  16. Positive impression are what we need to hear....too much of the negativity in this thread is based on hearsay of those who have barely been near the game. Although I'm not keen on the change to the Princes character I still maintain the game looks amazing and it remains my most wanted pre Xmas game. I refuse to believe that the talented team behind the original will screw it up...and indeed if the combat is much improved (which is the only proper impression I can get so far) so much the better.... So more detailed impressions please Mart....I need to know
  17. Hmmmm people have been playing way too much San Andreas by the language in here today
  18. Bah ignore them...its still my most anticipated game of the year and I'm praying that the darker tone is just that tone and not a fundemental gameplay shift. Ubisoft haven't let me down so far...and what I've seen looks different but excellent...just that nagging fear of a re-run of the DMC2 experience needs re-assurance... Anyway I'll stop hi-jacking the thread now
  19. Oooh PoP2....damnit you have a fine job! ;-) Any chance of impressions being posted? Anyway as for me mainly San Andreas no doubt, although I have the last 2 chapters of Blood Will Tell to finished off too
  20. My Panny Q. I may already have a perfectly good DVD player and GC. But damn it - its so pretty and shiny
  21. No he doesn't ....he sounds distinctly like Damon actually... Bah... Ms Lavigne est tres bon and all who disagree are wrong (and have no sense of fun) and helicoptor is way better then banquet
  22. Ah I thought offering to sell me the 7" suggested you weren't that keen. Don't think the vocal is that Robert Smith-esque myself...although its certinaly has a sarfy lint.
  23. I'm guessing from the the comments so far.. I could be own on my love of this band bah Did I mention I liked Avril Lavigne too hehe
  24. Got that wow factor whilst listening to Zane Lowe on Radio One on my home from work last night. He played the new single by Bloc Party - Helicoptors and it completely blew me away. Now a few hours later with the aid of slsk I've assembled a small collection of their output to date (no album yet ) and I'm very impressed. Remind me very much of Blur circa 'Blur' album era, (the vocal is very Damon) but with the energy of The Strokes and the buzzy guitar lines of Interpol. Certainly to my mind far better then the likes of Franz Ferdinane or The Futureheads (neither of which I rate at all as you may have gathered). Anyone been entranced by them yet? Are they worth checking out live?
  25. *shrugs* Doesn't stop it from being accurate though...
