  1. New RPG action. Was looking cool about a year ago, never heard anything since, amazed it ever got released.... is it any good?

    UT2004 demo

    ooo I like the new assault mode
  3. They're taking their time to get round to it
  4. No, just me getting a bit breathless at the thought of Tess in a small white dress. Almost typed "shite dress" there.... must be some Freudian scat thing.
  5. They do sod all apart from fart about in a house all day arguing I expect. I think it's the traditional "least votes gets the boot" arrangement
  6. I mean, I know Tess Daly is an hutter honeypot of the first order.... but can it really be worth watching this load of twats swan around just in the hope of copping a look at her bra? http://www.five.tv/programmes/backtorealit...ontent=4713536& Although that Sarah Kozer woman is supposed to be planning to wander round in the buff. That might be worth setting the Sky+ for I guess. As long as you can 30x fast forward through the bits with Richard Bacon in.

    UT2004 demo

    I'm downloading it now but it's got 2 hours to go so I won't get to try it out until tomorrow night. Anyone up for a blast?
  8. I would imagine the publisher makes the call on whether they spend the money on some FLASH memory in the cart, no?
  9. ok so they cocked up GBA Tetris Worlds with no high score (or even options) save and leaving the 2 cheat modes on by default... ...and now I find that the Disney Princess game I bought for my little neice doesn't save to the cart either. The poor little thing has to try to put in a 12 character password every time she starts the game... and it doesn't allow editing! If you get one character wrong... you have to start again. THQ=scum.
  10. Golf2 is rubbish. Golf1 was awesome. But both pale in comparison to Monkey Target2. As for 299; 30 30 30 30 30 30 30 30 30 10 10 9 Surely?
  11. Seconded. Awesome piece of work.
  12. What's wrong with the > and < sign on your keyboard? They seem to be malfunctioning somehow. Diddy Kong better than SMK? No. Wrong on all levels. Wronger than wrong.
  13. SO true. How did Avalanche ever rate an 8?!
  14. Not bad, never bad. I love it like a long lost child. It is beautiful. But I only gave it 9 as the actual game mechanisms are limited. But it makes up for it in sheer style, breathtaking beauty and emotional connection. I do believe I was quoted in Edge's forum page for saying that it made me get scared of heights. I used to creep along those ledges man, creep. Millimetres at a time.
  15. This is true. He made Nagoshi look like Shakespeare.
  16. only cos it's so dull you don't want to go through it again
  17. Maybe I missed that one, don't recall it. Was it last month? I think I skimmed that issue. Maybe I shall find a rich gem of quality, time to go through the backissues...
  18. You are kidding me? You must be? ok, does this make you feel all warm & cosy...
  19. Every month I read that page, and every month I learn nothing, and I learn it in an entirely impenetrable style of writing. Why do Edge put up with it?
  20. Not unless they like pissing all their profits up the wall
  21. Again, it's a recent memory but ignoring all the genuine dross, I'd say AvP2 was utterly unenjoyable. The drop ships didn't, the facial animation has been rendered utterly decrepit & comical by NOLF2 and Broken Sword3 then I spent 15 minutes figuring out that you have to open a panel before you can use the hacking device on it, even though the hacking device seems to "hack" anyway. Erm, and then I just got lost in very boring corridors with some aliens. YAAAAAAAAAAAAWN. Still, I picked it up for a fiver. The Thing pisses all over it from a great height.
  22. cos they give a good mono field of something behind you but large, rather than a single point. That's also the layout you should use if you have a single rear centre channel. Popo - Some TVs can actually decode 5.1 themselves and have all the speakers etc, but they ain't very good at it. Other than that, TVs should come without any speakers in my opinion and just be used as a display. The only other 5.1 compatilbity thing I can think of is whether the top of the TV is flat enough to stick yer centre on
  23. So true. I kind of liked this the one day I played it with a mate, but cannot be arsed to play it single player. Dunno, fighters just aren't as much fun anymore as when you were trying to master Yoga Noogies.
  24. Friday 13th on the Spectrum. Absolutely awful. Top down view of some white blob walking around a house plan with other coloured blobs and NO idea what you were supposed to do (which I suspect was avoid the coloured blobs til one got you). Shocking. For what it's worth, Ico is a work of art and one of the very few games I've bothered to complete. For it to be discussed in the same thread as some of these true pieces of digital excrement is just stupid by any standard or opinion.
  25. 7.1 is just 6.1, with the rear centre duplicated to give a big wall'o sound. THere's not additional audio information. HA! I knew I'd find somet technobabbly type thread even out here in the serious gaming area. My personal favourite use of 5.1 was the PL2 sound effects in Eternal Darkness. Lights way down, sound way up, pants way browned. and chintz, I've written this up on me webby if you want a backgrounder
