  1. Has anyone received anything from them yet? I noticed a subtle change in their website. The advert/ game page has changed from "Get it on day of release" to "Get it when we receive our stock"... I called them and asked when I should expect to receive mine and was there a problem. They were very nice but a little grey "We should be getting it in Thursday or Friday but we've been told by the supplier that there could be stock shortages but we should have enough for all our ore-orders" A lot of "if" and "but's" in one sentence! The normal edition is going for a good price but I may just give in and buy it at a local indie so I can be sure of a good weekend.
  2. But I thought I was quite clear- I wasn't surprised by not liking it- just ammused by the attitude of two people who thought I was mad not to like it but hadn't even played it. As my later post explains I personally don't think you need to like the scenario of a game to actually enjoy playing it. However on this occassion, for me, it did (plus it looks like a right bit of guff and I'm a graphics whore!) So, I actually agree with your comments- just don't think I'm guilty of the accusations
  3. I see your point but -and- in response to Biglime's comments I always try to give a game a chance. A fool could see that GTA SA has the basis for a great game but, like many things, the Devil is in the detail. I really enjoyed the first two and, as I said, I thought that would be enough to get me past my dislike of gangsta culture so I tried to give it a fair go. The reality was I couldn't get "in to it" enough to warrant the price tag as there were other games I also wanted and also I have very little time to play games now so surely I'm better to play games that I enjoy completely? I love games- always have done. Personally I hate football with a passion but I remember years ago buying PES on import as I'd heard nothing but high praise for a game. Turned out I enjoyed the game far more than I had imagined- proving that, unlike almost any other media, games can deliver with their mechanics, despite their subject matter.
  4. No, sorry. At the time of writing I have exactly 5 more soul points than you...
  5. lol- maybe a little... Sorry, I am a little bit of a graphics whore and this was one of the worst games I've seen in a long time (especially after just finishing Fable) The lighting was rather nice though!
  6. I bought GTA SA on Monday from my local Game. Tried it the last few nights and as much as the game play is vast in it's depth I just can't live with the whole Homeboy Gangsta culture thang. I had previously thought that this might be the case but had convinced myself that the game play would win over however my gut feeling won the day. Every sound bite was like fingers down a blackboard and after two days I just couldn't stand it any more. So, using the 10 day guarantee as it's meant to be used I duly put everything back in the box and went to swap it for Viewtiful Joe and Gradius V. Lovely stuff. When I handed the game over the guy looked like he was going to shit a brick. “I can't believe it!- you're joking? It's the best game ever” He even called the manager over. I explained my reasons to the manager who looked at me like I was retarded and then replied “Do you know that as of this morning we hadn't had a single copy returned out of all the shops. You're the first one” While I can believe that very few have been returned I can't believe that I'm the first, but I suppose someone has to be. What was telling though was, as they were putting the refund through, I asked the two of them if they were enjoying it. Their answer, “I've not played it yet I (we) don't have a PS2”...
  7. I just don't believe thats a pilot for a new show. looks more like a one off anti US government statement. As a statement it works (just), as a show it's so weak there's no way it would even get to pilot stage.
  8. So can anyone say where the PAL version is currently available? Looked in my local indies (Edinburgh) and just get the "next week" answer...
  9. I can't figure out all the DOOM3- XBox praise at the moment. Every trailer I've seen looks good- in a very "Doom" kind of way but the frame rate is shocking. It's fine when the camera is just panning around but one enemy on screen seems to make the fps go down to single figures. Clever graphics are one thing but when the gameplay suffers this much because of them (IMHO) then you can keep them. Does Riddick have the same issue? (I only ask as the movies I've seen would suggest not)
  10. Completely agree. I want to escape reality when I "switch off" Now I know that I will never be a rally driver or a commando or a football star but I only need to turn on the tv for 5 minutes to see all these things in all their gory detail. I want to explore alien worlds, interact with abstract images. Be a kid again...
  11. I remember reading the Edge review on this and it looked fantastic. Dis it ever get a PAL release? I can find mention of a USA/ JPN release but thats about it. Answers on a postcard...
  12. Anyone know exactly whats happening with this one? I ordered from Amazon (£16.99!) for the XBox. It's still sitting on a release date of 11.06.04 but I can't see that date anywhere else. Best I can find is Q2 2004 which would be... about now, actually. Looks like a fairly basic but stylish racer, certaibnly worth trying for £17.
  13. Tell us of this mythical land you speak of. A land where games arrive in stores early and copies of Edge pour through your door before it's been in every shop for 3 weeks. Please tell us. I may move...
  14. As this is Live! enabled and I've heard Live! games are region free, can anyone tell us if the US version works on the PAL XBox? No harm in asking...
  15. I was kind of thing the same thing, actually

    Anyone know whats going on with Galleon's release date? I thought it was in June then read it was May then read it was April and I'm now reading it's out this Friday. Just checked Play.com- June, Amazon.co.uk- This Friday. I've called my local Game and they didn't know any date... Anyone know for sure?
