  1. Your faith in gamers may be restored! My Team - Hammer Bros in defence, Mazza in the middle, Birdo and Shyguy as my wingmen.
  2. Not sure how it'll sell in the States but the Wright/Wright-Phillips advert for over here was genius. But Dad.....Sean Wright-Phillip's Dad brought the game for him...... As for Edge - why review it without trying the online first. Are there any games they do actually like maybe with the new editior they can go three pages without having some crack about the Wii only having minigames or tacked on controls or selling well but to a different demographic to the PS3.
  3. Just discovered this and after watching series one quickly grabbed series 2 which I've just watched in more or less one sitting. Absolutely loving it.
  4. Don't mind the stats being reset if they've fixed the problem with the wins being lost at the end of a series. Not quite sure how 'marth' has got 1089 points since the reset mind. I think the former on the replays if you're getting hammered. Just lost 5-4 in sudden death despite a last second megastrike that got me from 4-2 to 4-4. Great game - this will sell by the bucketload.
  5. Is it something to do with the other player disconnecting as soon as the game ends to avoid a loss. Four times its happened now and 3 of those have been wins for me. I'm not really fussed about the leaderboards but would like to have an accurate record of my own stats.
  6. Damn you guys - never got into South park but just started watching Series 5 and am now hooked. I want to watch Battlestar and Twenty Four not Cartman being a bastard.
  7. Anyone else getting an "error getting stats message" at the end of a series. I've had in twice on the trot now and am being thrown back to the main menu each time with my stats not getting updated.
  8. Spoke to my mate last night to tell him to make sure he watched on Sky tomorrow night before he stumbled across any spoilers. He had already been told by somebody in work that there was some sort of flash forward at the end of the episode with jack and Kate talking about going back to the Island!!!. I denied it but as soon as the episode starts he's probably going to suss it out. Why do people and the bloody media think it is okay to spoil TV shows. The Mirror had a page full of end of spoilers for all the U.S shows coming to an end the other week written by some soap opera columnist who had previously printed a story that Ecko died two weeks before the episode aired on Sky. Would somebody please explain to them that spoiling Lost, Heroes, etc is not the same as showing pictures of Phil saving Ian's kids from a car in Eastenders and publishing magazines that give away all the plot lines for every soap. People want to know who shags who in Eastenders then fine but spoiling Lost isn't much different to printing an article about the great new film coming out soon where a little boy can see dead people and Bruce Willis is a ghost.
  9. At first I was underwhelmed: Another Jack flashback to flesh out his character (oh - he's grown a beard and is upset about something) which continued to bug me throughout as I didn't see where in his timeline this would fit in. Charlie giving Juliette up seemed stupid. The very annoying Mancunian pilot was annoying me. The promised action scenes of the trio of shooters and the tents wasn't that great (and a pretty stupid plan as well) especially after the disapointing lack of action in the last Heroes. And where was bloody Locke Then Locke appeared, Walt appeared, I realised Charlie completely believed Demonds prophecy, The second action scene on the beach was fantastic (Hurley fucks someone up with his van, Sayed neck snapping and Sawyer shooting Tom), The underwater station stuff was great as well, The pilot got 'stabbed in the back' by Locke (is this a clue) They totally got me with the flash forward to the extent that my first fault when Kate appeared was "this is stupid are they trying to say that Kate knew Jack when he had a beard and doesn't recognise him on the Island without one" All in all - brilliant - one of the best season finales I've ever seen. Can't wait for Season Four now - I think flash forwards might be the way they go from now on. Locke and Sawyers flashback arcs have pretty much been resolved, there can't be a lot more to say about Jack, Kate, Jin and Sun, Charlies dead and the rest of the characters such as Hurley, Rose/Bernard, Clare, etc don't really warrant more flashbacks unless they cram something new in to make them relevant. Flash forwards would be cool - it would allow us to see what happens after the series ends (or when certain people get off the island) while still giving us Island stuff with whoevers on the phone, smokey, Ben, Jacob etc. In theory, all the flash forward should be interesting if they pepper them with little clues as to what happens on the Island. Unlucky lottery winner, Hurley returns home; Kate the fugitive is found; what happened to Michael and Walt, etc, etc; I'm sure it wasn't but if the plan all along was to have flashbacks and then switch to flashforwards half way through then thats genius. Of course, it could have been a one-off and next season we will get another 5 hours of Jin and Suns relationship, Jack gets another Tattoo and some other non-relevant flashbacks.
  10. Gave in and grabbed the last copy from Asda early this morning. Had two series on-line - won the first and got slaughtered on the second. Good thing I have nothing planned for the bank holiday and the missus is away as I'm hooked
  11. Whole transcript of the poem was in the Mirror today - pretty unpleasant stuff and all four of them were joining in. Pretty much blows the whole 'not racist' defence out of the water and I'm not surprised Channel 4 didn't air it. Danielle's "I'm just a thick tart and I'm sorry" defence may not work now. Still surprised how she has pretty much walked away with her ""career"" still intact.
  12. Just watched the final two episodes. Disapointed by the finale and felt the previous episode was better. I guess as they set up what was going to take place throughout the series it was always going to be potentially a let down although I'd have felt less let down if it hadn't been so lovey dovey with poor dialogue. I can live with Sylar not dying but I hope the Petrelli's are gone (although I bet they aren't) Still, great series overall and look forward to next season.
  13. Nooooo - must resist buying more Wii games. I haven't started Twilight Princess yet!!!! Anyone now what the likely high street price will be for this?
  14. Oceans Twelve - big fan of the first one, disapointed that Catherine Zeta Jones was in it as I hate her but still looked forward to it. First half was mediocre but I stayed with it assuming their would be a good end heist then they decided Julia Roberts looked like Julia Roberts and I was close to walking out. The Bruce Willis turned up and after that I was out of there - leaving my girlfriend alone in the cinema while I sat in the foyer. And from what I heard the ending was crap as well. Nearly walked out (and should of) Conspiracy Theory but didn't because Patrick Stewart was in it The Mexican but didn't because James Gandofini was in it Planet of the Apes remake but didn't because I was stunned that Burton had made such a shit film Hulk - As above replace Burton with Ang Lee Godzilla - Don't know why I didn't Alien 4 - Because the worst bit didn't happen until the very end
  15. I stopped watching when Davina mentioned on the red carpet that Nazi Big Brother was up for an award.
  16. If this happens then film is dead and they'll have to start showing The Shield, The Wire, Life on Mars, etc every week on the big screens.
  17. FUCK OFF Horse Face. Surely it must be happening soon unless her team starts winning. Be no good her getting to the final four and going out on the interview episode or (whisper it) the final. I demand her messing up the next task totally and another hour added to the show so Alan can destroy her in the boardroom until she takes a header out the window.
  18. Great - now I've got the theme tune stuck in my head. "Our new young heroes, proving their worth........" (or something like that)
  19. While I didn't think that her Zoe Slater voice was her real one but has anyone ever heard her speak before she went to the States. Her accent in that clip seems to come from the "this is what the Americans think every British person sounds like" camp.
  20. Super MarioKart (with Online) Majoras Mask (as I've never played it) Super Mario RPG
  21. 1. Goodfellas 2. The Godfather 3. City of God 4. Battle Royale 5. Last Boy Scout 6. Ferris Buellers Day Off 7. Catch me if you Can 8. Finding Nemo 9. Shawshank Redemption 10. Slapshot 11. Raiders of the Lost Ark 12. Trains, Planes and Automobiles 13. LA Confidential 14. Face Off 15. LOTR Trilogy In no particular order bar the top two and it will be edited. Currently bubbling under - Die Hard, T2, Sean of the Dead, Empire, High Fidelity, Princess Bride, Fight Club, and probably loads more I'll think of later - Seven, Robocop, Arghhhhhhhhhhhhh
  22. I didn't spot it until the start of this episode when Locke came out of the jungle and said he had come looking for Sawyer then it clicked and I kicked myself for not thinking of it sooner. Excellent episode btw
  23. Just watched the last two episodes - fantastic stuff especially 15. Hard to know how it is all going to finish although seeds are being planted. I'm torn between if I want a bloody, tragic finale to close the series properly or for the big guy to jack it all in and go look out on a lake full of ducks.
  24. I think they could sell a lot of copies of this. The Potter franchise has to be a pretty decent seller anyway but last book mania combined with wand/wiimote waving could see a lot of kids wanting a Wii to play this on.
  25. Just finished watching it - I think I liked it but a lot of that is to do with the ending. They better not come back!!
