  1. I was one who bought the very first batch of Wavebirds from North America (I don't know if this has anything to do with my bad experience) and I got the occasional problem of the batteries coming slightly loose during play and thus temporarily losing control of the game. I've solved this by simply putting a bit of card with Blue Tack underneath it under the batteries to hold them in place. Perhaps I'm a rare exception to the rule and there have been no similar problems since with other controlers?
  2. No indications yet as to wether or not it'll be a good game, but Stargate: The Alliance is looking very tasty, at least.
  3. After having felt so let down by the Gamecube over its lifespan, and given how much everyone has been raving about RE4 (including Edge), the game has very much become a last chance for the machine and me. I've rented the game and it's probably fair to say that I'm definately keeping my Gamecube now.
  4. Go on, give us an initial score out of 10.
  5. Yeah. It so is all about the cashflow these days. Give me enough cash and I'd probably end up like this!
  6. An interesting article. Not overly long or boring and the author comes to the point quickly enough. On the subject of Edge, I feel the author, like so many people, misunderstands Edge's review and scoring system. At the end of the day if Edge's review and scoring system wasn't as accurate and so in tune with the informed gamer as it is, nobody would give a toss or talk about the magazine the amount they (including the author of the article) do.
  7. Err, agreed just slightly with the two above. The game's a technical and artistic work of art.
  8. Given that all government rescources would be made more freely available to the project, perhaps such an individual could be made to "dissapear" very quietly?
  9. Perhaps I launched my topic with slight lack of total seriousness. But we did have the 48K Spectrum once, which was very successfull. Perhaps we could go one further somehow?
  10. What if the Government, in partnership with the right British devco's, publishers, business, and general genius people, launched a console? It would, of course, be the best f***ing console ever made by man. Totally open source. A cinch to program for. Stunning aesthetic external, yet configerable design. Affordable (£99.99 launch price includes 2 games + 1 remote + 1 extra joypad). Just and fair deals given to developers (OK, I'm pushing it a bit!) thus promoting an explosion of new creative energy. British publishers and retailers brought to heel by new laws and ways of thinking by the Government. A machine so advanced and future proofed that one is garaunteed at least 10 years before a replacement is launched! Of course, it would be a stunning success in this country. But how about the rest of the world? Do you think we could take on the big boys? Could we shove geeky Bill Gates' head down the loo and give him a bogwosh? Could we push Mario and his silly friends back up those stupid green pipes they came out of? And most importantly, could we take on those responsible for making the most annoyingly anti-social device know to man (the Walkman)? What do you think?
  11. Played the demo, and whilst thinking it was quite fun I still felt it lacked the spark of a really great game. Which disapoints me in particular with the Timesplitters series as I always hoped that the supposed core team behind Goldeneye and the first half of Perfect Dark could somehow match their previous efforts.
  12. I'm told by those who have one, that the Tesco Clubcard gives a really good deal compared to other reward cards.
  13. I get the feeling that sid, like me and many others, are simply standing back in awe slightly at the current pace of acceleration in human technology. Sure, we can argue the toss about slightly varying levels of graphic torque. But there's no doubting that we are moving so fast.
