  1. And there was me thinking that your defence for playing an illegal ROM was that you were going to purchase it anyway.......

    wtf? What's that got to do with the price of daffodils? I'm not arguing his right to buy games for whatever platform he wants to. I'm arguing that you can't complain there is "nothing of interest" to buy on your poor old GC one minute, and then pop down the shop and buy a multi-platform PS2/XBox/GC release the next.

    How is it true though? He said "nothing" had come to GC that interested him since Viewtiful Joe...and then admitted to buying both PoP and BG&E - both titles available on the GC. Sure it's his call to buy them for PS2, but it's plain wrong to ignore the fact that they are available (as superior versions I may add) on GC. Tsk, tut, etc. yourself

    It's about £25 from places like DVDBO and videogamesplus

    And that's fair enough - but it means you can hardly wail about there being nothing available for your GC now can you?

    Nothing?? Blimey, you do have high standards as you've passed over some classics such as Mario Kart, Prince of Persia, Beyond Good & Evil........

    And you've come to that conclusion after playing both extensively of course

    IGN say March 9, 2004
  9. The US version is only £14:87 over at videogamesplus.com The UK version is only £19:99 at Game (Player's Choice)
  10. I'd personally argue with you on that one - and the person who wrote the review I linked to would as well I guess (seeing as they gave it 8/10). In fact, a lot of people would, as this [Naruto 2] has been a huge seller in Japan over the last few weeks. You might not like it, but it's not a bad game by any stretch.
  11. That's no problem. I think this piece from Penny-Arcade (which is a rant against the poor IGN review of FFCC) explains the game pretty well in places:
  12. It's a top cell-shaded beat 'em up on GC (exclusive I think?) EDIT: Images fixed? Also, as I am now stealing their images and not Magic-Box ones, I guess I better link to the (positive 8/10) review they come from! http://www.ntsc-uk.com/review.php?platform=ngc&game=Naruto2

    P.N.03

    Why would it be better? Only being able to do one at a time (a very deliberate decision by Mikami) makes it much more strategic...can I get one more shot in before I dodge, what's the best way to complete this room with maximum combo etc. If you are just putting yourself in front of an enemy and then tapping fire until they are dead, you are playing it all wrong. Shoot, dodge, shoot, dodge is the way the game is meant to be played. Once you 'get it', it looks fantastic in motion.

    BINGO It's a marmite game for sure.
  15. No, what I'm saying is that they are releasing the game with a very large multiplayer emphasis - the single-player stuff is the bolt-on in this case. They are forcing nobody to buy it, and by totally going with the GBA->GC link connection they are pushing a few boundaries. Why should they be criticised for that? Why does it 'suck' that you have to use the GBA? Did Tekki 'suck' as you had to use the massive alternative controller? As for it being a 'success', I'm sure you have no clearer idea of exactly how many units Nintendo are hoping to shift than I do. One thing we do know is that it sold more than they expected in Japan (forecast was 300k units), so it was certainly a success there. If you don't have access to the required equipment to play the game, move along. Plenty of people will have, and they will get enjoyment from it.
  16. That's right, because there aren't anywhere near as many GBA owners as there are GC owners are there.....oh, wait a minute....
  17. Done your research I see...you can't play it that way. It's 1 player on 1 GC controller, or 2+ players on 2+ GBAs. You can't mix the two. Still, don't let a poor grasp of the facts stand in the way of some good 'ol Nintendo bashing

    FYI, RS III - £9:07 at DVDBO. Gotta be worth a punt at that price.

    Killer 7

    But there was no 'hardcore snobbery' going on. It had been, until then, a thread free of that kind of stuff. Shame on you.

    POP and BG&E

    Is it to do with the fact that Warioworld has already shipped? Have you had a shipping email for BG&E??

    Killer 7

    Erm, you don't understand. At all. It's all about demographics - the GC userbase is skewed more towards people who would be interested in this than the PS2 one. Having a big userbase is one thing, but when they are 99% interested in FIFA and NFSU it doesn't automatically mean bigger sales for a title such as Killer 7. Let me clarify, if you were selling tickets for an art exhibition would you expect to sell more tickets going to a great big cinema showing 'Robot Machine Killer #1', or a smaller specialist place showing 'The Life of Perez Dondulberry'??

    Killer 7

    No great surprise really I guess. Though it is interesting that they have confirmed the GC release dates (2005 for Europe!) but not the PS2 ones, simply saying "PS2 release is confirmed but more specific information will follow". Looks like a GC release first, followed by a PS2 launch several months later.

    POP and BG&E

    Woot! It's shipped! Mind you, the new batch they got in has sold out again almost instantly! Go BG&E!
