  1. Perhaps they know games being awarded 18 certificates != under 18s not playing them.
  2. I liked it. The formula is pure Tenchu, same as it ever was. Tenchu is one of those games that charmed me on the old platforms and I carry it forward to the next-gen, despite the crappy visuals. Online co-op is *such* a treat in this one. Providing I can invert the Y axis, it's a buy for me.
  3. Hence "sim". It's no MS Flight Simulator. It's a console game.
  4. It's a mission-based dogfight/bombing run "sim" with a deeply Japanese design sensiblity in terms of the story and character design, usually involving a made-up "hero" country being attacked by an agressor framed within the story of a family shattered by the conflict, most of which is secondary to the blistering lock-and-fire/cannon-fight gameplay and Big Rucks In The Sky you get in-game. AC4 was my favourite on the ps2.
  5. That trailer was gameplay footage. Welcome to the neu-gen, "gamer".
  6. Youtube version : Officially pant-wettingly amazing.
  7. Bah. Wish I'd ordered from gameplay now They just post the package without needing a sig. Still, vroom vroom cars, eh? Get in.
  8. It says "signed for Royal Mail" on my shopto dispatch email. Do I need to sign for this thing tomorrow? Damn backwards system if I do
  9. Are you going to buy the Turn10 Course Analysis Driving Guide videos on the Marketplace for 150 MSFunBucks a pop when they appear, too? Seriously, I think there was a link in that thread somewhere to a £14.99 plastic table that might do the job for sofa-surfers. £160 seems ... excsessive to me, but if it's going to improve your experience then I hope it's money well spent. See you all on Mugello *Long*
  10. I had the wheel for a few days when the F2 demo came out and didn't get on with it at all. Firstly, I noticed a pretty big dead-zone in the first 15 degrees motion either side of "north" before I'd see any action on screen. Despite the FF, there is no resistence at all when gliding (not hard cornering) which felt "off" compared to actual driving (I know : not a fair comparison, but it just didn't feel right to me). Secondly, setup is everything. I realised pretty soon after setting it up that it wasn't going to work on my lap so I had it on a tiny telephone table which worked better, but I suggest to get the best out of it you'll need either a proper stable frame-rig to mount it on, or someother kind of table with room for your legs to slip under for the pedals. Plusses, though : The foot pedal senstivity was ok, the wheel feels quite solidly built. Friends who have got it setup right say they're shaving whole seconds off their laptimes after that adjustment period. It just wasn't for me. Caveat Emptor Check here for some good table/setup experience : http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=452146 and that's all the weather
  11. I generally kick-off with "Hooman" and take the extra $500 to the gun shop after my initial 2k Smoke purchase. I really should experiment a bit more with Elves (as a lot of people seem to like them) and Trolls (to kick those pansy elves in the fanny).
  12. [includes self] Top game.. Start packing Gust though - we have elf-sighting the likes of which even GOD has never seen, Usul.
  13. I am a fighter, not a screamer. In general the community seems to be less cockendish than the powertwats that stalk about in the Halo3 BETA. I'd be quite happy for the community to stay at about the size it is at the moment, and for MS to layoff the Shadowrun publicity in the H3 beta in case the game is ruined by said numbskulls cross-gaming and ruining an otherwise fun experience. Yes, the game deserves lurve.
  14. KG : Out of interest, when did you receive your review code?
  15. To paraphrase the someone who said in their Mercury review for the psp on Eurogamer, "this game is for people who already like this game". And I do. Bring on the EG 5/10.
  16. All I can say is that after I DLd the patch (pre Shivering Isles), my fraps improved and the loading area messages were dropped a load too. Have you tried clearing you cache and restarting?
  17. Achievements are up on xbox.com etc. [ source : exidor ]
  18. Team Xbox with the lowdown Seems like the week of the 26th March is the time. The place : your xbox. The cost: 2400. Will you? I know I will be. (2500 points is about £21, btw)
  19. According to the YouTube comments thread it's "Atlas Plug - Halfway till bliss". http://www.atlasplug.com/myFlash/index.html
  20. Quick one : if you sit on the main menu and wait you get a demo movie of some ruff and tumble action. There's a drum and bass track playing over it that sounds like Pendulum. Anyone know what it is?
  21. Has there been any word on whether SI will include any new music from Soule?
  22. I have not experienced it, but word on most forums about quest bugs seems to end up with people recomending clearing your 360's Hard Disc cache and retrying.
  23. The Gametrailers MP video suggests the same for 2
  24. No-one believes me when I say I had some quite serious framerate stuttering with GRAW1 (especially on the sea bay level - name?) - I am curious to see if the fraps are holding up in this one.
  25. Damn straight it'll be seamless. Why break the format and piss off a kerjillion fans? I know I am looking forward to this in quite an unnatural way... 1200 points?
