    Dragon Quest IX

    No!!! I like turn based. Japan seems to be the only place making them this way anymore. The last western release I can think of with turn based combat was Knights of the Old Republic, so I really hope this is too.

    Dragon Quest IX

    Recently finished the Cursed King on PS2 = played ace and looked loverly, so definately looking forward to this.
  3. I forgot Fire Emblem on GC. Anyone else play that? Its hard trying to remember games played that we're out specifically in the last 12 months.
  4. Multi-player Gears of War. This is the first game to get me playing on Xbox live regularly - I am not selling the single player as a game of the year experience, (although it was very good). Age of Empires (DS) and Oblivion also stood out for me.
  5. Sounds like a plan. Sounds like a good plan. Gotta get a GoW fix tonight as well though.
  6. I'm really regreting not getting Lovecraft to lend me his copy whilst he plays with his Wii at Centre Parcs!
  7. Damn! I might get R6 today then. I'll just have to tell the other half that a boy at school lent it to me. Since I got my 360 in March I've only had two peeps on my friends list. Then GOW came out and its shot up to 7 for exactly the reasons you mention. We tend to play most Fri/Sat nights. Gamer tag Puck666 of course.
  8. Am I detecting a GOW backlash? I agree last night involved a lot of finger in ear moments, but that was mostly because it was on insane and we kept dying. We had to listen to the same in ear drivel everytime we started from the last checkpoint. Blasting through it on easier settings and it doesnt grate anywhere near as much. Sure, something for Epic to improve on for next time, but if we hadnt kept dying last night it wouldnt have been so much of an issue. Anyhoo no on rail moments in tonight's team battles!
  9. Got the game in March and had to start again after about 20hrs and this is what I did second time round. Dont give the medal to Jafre at the beginning and you wont see a single gate. I completed all (well most) of the side quests, became head of the thieves and assassin's guilds, gladitorial champion etc and didnt have to contend with a single gate. I then did the oblivion main quest at the end - the thieves cowl you get for becoming head of the guild proved useful and at that stage I was doinbg x8 damage from sneak attacks.
  10. I'm getting it! I'm getting it! Next month for sure. You say cheapskate like its a bad thing and as for odour eaters; a man's gotta eat don't he?
  11. No need to get R6 3 - R6 Vegas is definately gonna happen next month. Still dont like the single player demo, but the co-op demo is a blast. I have now stopped buying PSPs - the first step on the road to recovery is admitting you have a problem.

    Dead Rising

    I stood on some waist high debris of plywood that litter the level. Worked a treat - she couldnt run me over and the zombies didnt seem able to get me. Then I kept shooting her in the head.
  13. Well I cant afford R6 Vegas until after Xmas. By that time you'll be feeling bad about ignoring R6 co-op invites because you'll be too busy playing Lost Planet. I'll be getting that in Feb, but you'll probably be busy playing Zelda by then!
  14. Ok, this is where I get ridiculed as a "no nothing". Swap Magic: disc/card that lets you play import games on your UK PS2, a bit like Region X allows you to watch multi-region DVDs?
  15. I've replaced my wonky PS2 in anticipation of this game, (3rd one now - fucked if I know how they expect a PS3 to last someone for ten years!), but didnt think it was out until Feb/Mar in the UK. Can anyone confirm the UK release date?
  16. I think the over the shoulder camera makes a huge difference. I was playing the mutiplayer Rainbow 6 Vegas demo at the weekend and whilst the controls and moves werent too disimilar to GoW it was no way as fluid or dynamic.
  17. Planet Woman? Is that the gargantuan arch-nemisis of Ant Man?
  18. Bought my 360 in March and am on my 3rd one already. Totally froze with 3/4 of the ring of light red at the end of August, (just as I'm getting exited about Dead Rising and Saints Row's impending release). Returned it to Argos who were rubbish, but once MS we're contacted, (a week later) by Argos, MS picked it up, fixed it and returned within 7 days. When they rang to say it was being returned they were really cagey about what the problem was, refusing to tell me what was up with the machine, but assuring me that it had been fixed. Three weeks later it broke again with exactly the same fault. Prior to it breaking again I noticed that the clock was an hour forward of GMT and as I was conected to Live I couldnt alter it myself. No idea if this is relevent. It took about 2 days of ringing MS before I got to talk to someone, which of course, left me feeling ready to kill Peter Moore and Bill Gates. When I did get through MS were very good; picking up and returning my 360 in 4 days. They wont admit it but I got a new console this time, (unless they did a really good job of cleaning the old one) and no problems since. The clock is the right time again too.
  19. Stunning to play, but no, not to look at. Screen grabs from GTA dont compare well to screen grabs from Gran Turismo 3, for example. Differnt games and so not a fair comparison for judging which is a better game, but in terms of pure graphics GTA aint stunning. I'm not worried by the Wii's lack of graphical grunt though. Replayed RE4 the other month and it still looks beautiful by any standards. If the Wii is 1.5 times as powerful as GC we will see some very pretty games on it.
  20. I agree with you toatally as far as single player goes. Sure it looks better, but some months and a new hardware platform on, you'd expect that. What about multiplayer though? Edge really seemed to gloss over this aspect. I've had a 360 since March and this is the first game to get me playing regularly on line - really love it. Havent enjoyed Halo or other FPS online anywhere near as much, but GoW really, (for me at least), provokes and rewards co-operative team play. And you can move and shoot.
  21. Knew as soon as I saw Zelda was being reviewed they'd give it at least 9. 4pagges was exessive tho. The thing that really bugged, was the content of the Zelda review: revisiting, reworking, same themes, nothing new. Any other game with a write up like that would have scored 6 or less - RR2 on PSP for example. OK RR2 probably deserved that, but wheres the consistancy? Why didnt Zelda get a 6?
