  1. Maaaaaaan.

    Metroplex = clunky piece of plastic that transformed into a "city" if a city looked like the millenium falcon after it had crashed into a car park, the same mess on rollerskates and "the biggest transformer ever" which was only six inches taller than Starscream. The start of the Transformers rot (Headmasters, powermasters, fucking Armada) :ph34r:

    Fortress Maximus = Like Metroplex. Just bigger

    Soundwave = A tape recorder. Ahahahahahhahaha.

    Grimlock = Robot fucking dinosaur. With a sword!

    What are you people thinking?!?

  2. I know for a true fact one ex-Edger was under the delusion that the irredeemably rubbish Brawn was the greatest TF of all. Clearly broken in the head, yes?

    Well. He is "the most macho of all autobots..." :ph34r:



    Nuff said.

  3. [comedy post]Surely you are not suggesting the editorial gang were bribed by a complete set of Generation one reissues, a signed original TF:TM animation cell of Megs & Ops and free Hasbro toys for life for any of their offspring!!![/comedy post]

    Journalistic integrity be damned! I'd give it an eight for that...

    Shit. I'd give it a eight for just a G1 Optimus Prime. With the wee matrix and energon axe, mind...

  4. I mauled him mercilessly, he was too easy if you had Air Raid. Which goes right back to not needing to have leveled up the right way...

    Hang on. I wasted him first go by just going ape-shit with the handguns and flicking on Ifrit for kick-ass tracer fire when the devil trigger charged. Apart from that it was just a case of jumping at the right time? Now Phantom, Phantom absolutely bitch-slapped me the first eight or nine times I fought him (flat mate enters living room "What the fuck is that?" "Some kind of giant lava spider scorpion thing..." "I can see that. What's it doing?" "Kicking my ass." "I can see that too."). And Nightmare... Grrr... I kept playing though because it was always my fault that I lost...

    Anyway a good boss fight is an exhilirating challenge and a memorable experience. Seven force on Gunstar Heroes is just a case of pattern memorising but is no less fun for it...

  5. Yes. The prospect of XNA scares me in a "back of the neck hairs on end way."

    Microsoft says "Ug. Hardware failed ;) we monopolise game development instead. Just like with system software/media player/browsers etc. etc."

    J Allard wouldn't know "more creative games" if one raped his gran.

  6. Awww, man.

    It's about you getting a column?

    You're pissed off more people didn't twig what it was?

    Dammit, Clive we demand answers!

  7. Is it? I thought someone mentioned Full Spectrum Warrior...

    Well maybe but...


    Corner Rainbow. Now I'm sure of it...

    Though that just raises more questions than it answers. ;)

  8. So anyway...

    We all figured out the "next issue" is something to do with sinclair, right?

    (Delorean me all you want, you think I'm reading a whole "bickering about Edge" thread you've got another thing coming)

  9. Does Street Fighting count as a sport? Or wrestling? Or racing?

    If not; no. I haven't actually owned a sports game since Blades of Steel on the NES and every one I've played since then hasn't gripped my attention.

    Might have something to do with hating sport since PE at school...

  10. I thought they fed Burt Ward some special pills to make his genitals smaller because censors were worried about his crotch bulge corrupting youngsters.

    If it's on the internet it must be true ;)

  11. they need to make it like starsky and hutch.

    David Hasslehoff went on record in the, er, Metro, stating that he unequivocally did NOT want the Knight Rider movie to be a piss take like Starsky and Hutch.

    Humourless bastard.

    I sat through an entire series of Team Knight Rider. I demand a piss-take.

  12. I was just reading EDGE in our local newsagents (it was already taken out of the red bag!) and read about Killzone and how they've only just played it for the first time. Didn't they have a huge article on this a couple of issues back? So are they

    now they're saying that was based on screenshots and PR waffle??!

    I really hope it isn't driv3r as I was quite looking forward to it.

    It's probably the first time the new Edge team played it. You know; post walkout.

  13. Returns was impressive in an aesthetic way (except for the fact there were like seven sets at most) but my main problem was it could have been a great Catwoman film, or a great Penguin film or even a great Max Shreck film but because it had all three of them chewing scenery at once it ended up overlong and bloated.

  14. I'm thinking the film is in danger of becoming too cluttered and incoherent. Obviously, the personal sub-stories in juxtaposition with the action stuff is a fairly obvious mechanism used in comic flicks, but I'm starting to worry about this one. The cast is huge. It might come out as a disjointed mess.

    But apparently the script is don. B)

    Don't get me wrong: I'm mad excited about this movie. I just hope I wont be disappointed.

    Aye. Too many villains, personal or otherwise, and we'll get another Batman Returns.

  15. Ahem.

    If you want an in depth robot "simulation" then obviously Armored Core is the way to go.

    If you want to be Optimus fucking Prime and stomp around blowing shit up then you want a Transformers game.


    One is a robot game. The other is a Transformers game. Featuring the Transformers. The things you used to pretend to be in the school playground and make the noises and everything. Remember?

    Nostalgia is a powerful thing. Show it some damn respect.
