  1. Its almost as if theres some sort of spoiler in there somewhere.
  2. I think the fact you havent taken a spot of critiscism in good humour nor thanked someone for typing a whole fuck ton of stuff, to sort your sloppy grammar and phrasing, shows you may not be exactly ready for the heady world of journalism . But seriously, 500 words reviewing a game isnt going to win anyone any prizes for supra journalism, I wouldnt worry too much. Try doing a feature style article or something. It could be called, "do games make people violent, fucking cock bollocks". Oh also, did I miss the tons of sites featuring adult (in content) reviews of games for all ages, link plx
  3. Oh sorry, I was using "cunt" to mean swearing, sorry for the confusion. Also, you're gonna need to take criticism slightly better than that for anyone to help you out. 500 amazingly written words dont mean shit to me if your tone is off. Specifically in a review for a game kids will be buying, simple as that. I read the rest of it, but why bother commenting, you dont wanna hear my opinion.
  4. You arent kieron gillen, stop swearing pointlessly. I love a cunt here and there as much as the next person, but not in a games review.
  5. Perhaps the most abnormal second post ive ever seen
  6. No, what I object to is him acting like a complete twat. And I didnt say you werent alowed to dislike it, but you have to APPRECIATE it, it embodies where gaming is going and what can be done purely on a technological level if nothing else.
  7. Im pretty sure if you dont at least appreciate half life 2 (you dont have to like the fps genre) you might wanna go get a different hobby. I feel kinda dirty posting in this baiting thread, but seriously, go fuck off and jog around a field or some shit.
  8. Easy on hard mode? That bit is driving me bloody nuts. The trick is, get a the shotty, alt fire it in its face then jump out of the way as it charges, rinse and repeat, shouldnt have a scratch on ya.
  9. One more thing on the "how did I not know this for the whole game and ep1" pile. Alt click on the grenade is an underarm toss for short distance, however if you crouch and alt fire the grenade gets punted along the ground, woulda made a whole ton of fire fights a whole lot easier.
  10. Anyone dying in this game except in a few tricky arenas really needs to learn to play, as I said before theyve gone ALL OUT to make this a game about progression not dying and reloading. You do not need to touch the quick save key in hl2 or episode 1 on anything other than a few spots on hard mode. The games auto saves are amazing and nearly perfectly judged.
  11. And the grub from ep2 you see in the citadel that does that mind fuck attack thing, the commentary really had me in awe. The amount of thought and consideration going into story telling and exposition.. its the future and valve seem to be the only people, especially in the fps genre, even attempting this level of quality. Oh also, minimal deaths and generous save points automatically done so no quicksave needed = amazing. Anyone else notice that in both hl2 and ep1 the aim is to get you through the story not force you to stop and trial and error stuff, and in the occasions where trial and error is needed its often after making a tactical mistake not a simple blunder (airship set pieces mostly).
  12. I didnt know until today you could shoot grenades back with the primary fire of the gravity gun. Im such a nub.
  13. Ah, you died, And alyx died!? Seriously shes fucking rock hard. Have you considered.. Learning 2 Play? (in true wow forums style) Im fucking shit at flight sims, doesnt mean I spend my life having a go at them on rllmuk.
  14. The fact that you can win every fire fight in the game using purely the gravity gun is testement to the combat system. Grabbing shit using it for defense, shooting it at people, and just generally mixing up the standard point and shoot is revolutionary. Halo is not even in the same league. Im always suprised at how effortlessly Valve produces brilliant set pieces and environments while other developers have so much difficulty. Looking forward to playing with the commentary track, the lost coast one was amazing.
  15. I understand you study every day and work hard to play well, but luck really doesnt come into it. Downswings are gonna happen, and really bad ones at that, but its not conspiracy of the planets or something, its just maths (I know you know this and it doesnt make it any easier). The horrific players that are sucking out on you now, are the same ones that have allowed you to be a winning player. The few big downswings I had when I played limit regularily pretty much destroyed my game for a while, they are hard to handle. I guess its what makes poker not the dream cash-cow we wanted it to be. Be thankfull you arent playing NL Cash
  16. The way youre talking seems very different to when you started playing. Take a break, read SSH, TOP etc again make sure you are confortable with taking massive downswings while maintianing perfect play (hard to do), big downswings are often slippery slopes. Remember always that when you get a big suck out youre gonna make money from that guy in the long run, simple as that. Embrace the bad beats as signs that you can make money from this game, if we only ever got action when we were beat then we would make NO money. I havent played a hand of online poker for months now but the old adages stay true, the first ten pages of SSHE are a god-send.
  17. Yeah so xbox then.. anyone actually care? Sony are fucking destroyed, scrabbling to add some shit movement feature to their controller then getting royally teabagged by shigsy. Yay.
  18. Not to put a downer on this dvd AGAIN but its as overpriced as it was last year. Just to remind people of the costs involved in this: Download the videos: Free Burn them to a dvd: 10-30p depending on quality Jiffy Bag : 10-20p depending on bulk Postage : A first class stamp. Total : At a stretch with nice top quality media £1 So for every order he makes a nice £5 + profit, fuckin shamefull! Someone come and do this for a quid each, im fucking tempted but my burners broken. I could buy a new one with the appaling profit this guy makes. This is as bad as wares selling, blatent profitering, and the fact its stickied.. fuckin hell.
  19. A 2 players stick definately seems like a big thing, but not a massive concern. Is the hori stick one player , what sorta price tag am I looking at for import? I have an old ps1 stick I use with an adaptor, works well enough but doesnt really have an arcady feel.
  20. Im thinking of getting one of these, im concerned with the price , whether its actually good for mame , could I whack it in some kind of selfbuilt arcade cab at some later date? Just experiences really, what do you guys think of the stick?
  21. Anyone one know of any boots in the canterbury area? One day ill actually get some stuff to brag about.
  22. Outs are allways very easy to work out when you know what both people had, also backdoor is 1.5 outs. If people didnt play like he does, then we wouldnt make any money, its something to celebrate not get annoyed about, if you have SSHE theres a nice piece in the intro about this.
