    I have to agree with those who think that the harder difficulties enhance the game; Expert will make or break a 4 player team. I spent most of Saturday afternoon playing Expert No Mercy with randoms and we got on together throughout most of the campaign. However, after 1 1/2 hours on the finale, it was down to me and 1 other just as the chopper came hovering in. I was first to the entrance, but got downed by a small gaggle of zombies. My comrade just jumped over the mass and into the safety of the helicopter leaving me to be torn to shreds right there on the helipad... So if anyone el
  3. Well, I heard that 300 was going 'on sale' to cost 100 points for a download, which seemed worth a punt at that price. Seeing as I was up and about I've just checked to see if its available to download: Only SD version is 100 points. HD still sets you back the full 540 (approx 4.60 pounds) Still, might be worth a go if you have some spare points knocking about.
  4. As a proud owner of a new 360, I am keen to bolster my friendslist with folk in the same timezone (GMT+4.) My only game is Crackdown at the minute, but I'm sure I'll be filling my hard drive with impulse buys on Arcade. Consider everyone in this thread added! XBL- Avatar555
  5. That BBC article just needed some editing: That's really all one needs to say about Killzone 2. Shame the writer felt compelled to write a poor article around that gem of a line.
  6. Frightful memories is pretty good- just look at their mad staring eyes.. I cracked up at their parting cries of "Goodbye! Bye! Save us! Goodbye! Save us! Bye!" I think the segment works in an errie humor way. Any excuse to make fun of very unscary 'scary' games (a bit like Warnings From History)
  7. Got my own copy of this game for the first time a couple of weeks ago. I feel so late to the party... but it's an absolute blinder of a rhythm game isn't it? I completed single play and am now stuck on the disco UFO level on Master Play. I almost got it this evening, but skipped a couple of beats on the Final section*. My wrist felt like it was going to drop off so I gave it a rest. Do most people play on Normal or Hard difficulty? (I am worried that I'm even more inept at this game than I think I am.) *
  8. Parchezzi has a guard walk into his office every so often for a bit of a snoop around. Maybe he's seeing the body on the balcony? Can't remember if he looks in that direction or not. Spoiler (If you like to figure it out for yourself)

    DS Simcity

    I'd be interested to hear from someone who's played it on this forum. If it compares to Theme Park DS (a perfectly workable port for a classic game) then it could be worth a punt.

    This has been out since Monday in the US. Anyone given the English Language version a go?
  12. It would really fit into the whole 'satire of consumerism' angle if they let the main character carry around an Ipod-esque device. You could listen to custom soundtracks in the car, but step out the door and the music continues to play with a slightly tinnier sound. SA changed the base or treble of a song depending on how nice or cheap your ride was. VC has a tape deck icon for the custom soundtrack (a sign of the era the game was set in) Incorporate the two ideas to give an mp3 player with a humorous sound-alike name. Walking around listening to your own tunes would work really well with
  13. The Thursday magazine in today's Gulf News (the local paper I love to loathe) had an article 'comparing' the PS3 and Xbox360. No writer/journo was credited with writing the piece, so I assumed it was a cut and paste job from Sony's Middle East PR office. What got me tutting and rolling my eyes was the part about backward computability- saying the PS3 was fully compatible with PS2 titles, whereas the 360 was only partially compatible with xbox titles. Blatant lying or the final run of the hardware emulation PS3s? Am I right in thinking these are PAL units being sold round these parts?
  14. So thats: 25,000 Dhs for the TV + 2,500 Dhs for the PS3 = 27,000 Dhs or £3,800 (approx) That's a pretty hefty console bundle, even by local standards. Can I have your soon-to-be-spare V-series then?
  15. Well here's an interesting offer for all us UAE based forumites: Buy a Sony Bravia LCD TV and pre-order a 60GB PS3 and receive the following: FREE HD cable FREE Open Season Blu-Ray movie (probably in addition to the Casino Royale that comes with the console) and 2 FREE tickets to the Shakira concert. I saw it in the paper* last week, but it didn't mention a price tag for this 'bargain'. This probably tops HMV for the most desperate console bundle of recent years. Any takers? *Gulf News, if anyone else reads it.
  16. That bit had me stumped too, I filled in the entire screen with red ink in frustration. Turned out my circles weren't exactly spot on which I blame on my lack of Primary School Teacher Training.
  17. If he's chucking you out for the reason I think he is (still early on in the game, right?)... Hope that makes sense or at least gives you a clue.
  18. [Yarr!] The touch screen use at the start of a race is bad, but the magic carpet sections are even more 'iffy' You go through the race courses again with two goals- pop balloons with a 'tap' and collect silver coins with a 'drag and drop' motion. Thing is, you can change the direction you're facing with a 'dragging' motion too, just as long as you don't drag the pointer over any pickups. Cue me trying to drag a trickily placed coin and ending up looking at the floor. Can't decide if I'm rubbish or the control method is. Aside from that the actual racing seems fine, but a bit easy at the mome
  19. Just got that rank today too. What a feeling! Probably qualifies for one of my greatest gaming achievements. Really like the congratulatory message too, might be worth putting on my CV to dazzle and amaze prospective employers...

  21. If this went ahead I'd be sorely tempted to pick it up. Built the following shopping cart list: Xbox Core: $299.99 Wireless Controller: $39.99* Charge and Play: $14.82* Wired Headset: $19.92 20 GB Hard Drive: $99.99 Total as of now: $474.71 = 251.25 GBP Total with $200 Core price reduction: $274.41 = 145.33 GBP I'd imagine shipping from some kind-hearted US forumite to the UK would bring it up to the price of Premium console bought in the UK, even without Customs slapping on VAT. I guess the only way to make it a good deal would be if you knew someone who was flying from the states
