    Arcade was an absolutely cracking read, I was very disappointed when it stopped.

    GamesTM seems to be going for an Arcade-style mag, with it's retro content & being very well-written.

    The Cube version takes a ridiculous 57 slots on a Memory card...

    I've got the game but can't play it properly cos I ain't buying a small memory card so close to the 251 card's release.

    Enterprise is complete tosh - Star Trek's been going downhill since DS9 ended, unfortunately, what with Voyager's "reset button" every episode and Enterprise being duller than a very dull thing that doesn't reflect light on a cold and cloudy day.

    Andromeda on the other hand, rocks serious bells. It's funny, got a great cast, has episodes that get referred to afterwards and plenty of both ship to ship and hand to hand combat scenes. Plus Tyr is the best character on a TV show ever.

    Tomb Raider was one of those films that, although it looked pretty, had no SOUL to it whatsoever. In fact, 4 of us watching it on DVD decided to turn it off after 40 minutes because we wre all bored shitless. Reply 0

    When I first went to New York a few years ago I thought I'd do the tourist-y thing and head to Times Square. I get there and it is empty. Absolutely no-one or nothing about. Not one person. It was about 8, 9pm. Bet you five quid you can't guess why...

    Was this when they shut Times Square to shoot a sequence for the god-awful Bruce Willis vehicle called "The Siege"?

    9 out of 10...... surely you cant give a game that crashes and is a bit short that high? considering the poor scores that virtually all xbox games have received here, i'm sensing some bias here........

    Electric batteries, light bulbs, transformers and motors were all invented by Europeans.

    Transformers are a US invention, although Japan thought up robots that change into cars and guns and stuff :P

    Sorry guys, thought this thread could do with a little frigging humour...

    This 'game' is absolutely terrible.

    It features slowdown WHILE YOU ARE PLAYING - not just on replays or highlights. During this slowdown you can't kick or pass, it's just awful.

    It also crashed twice in 2 days, the first XBox game I've seen crash.

    Added to the above, annoying touches like on the team select screen, player 2 not being able to select his own team, needing player 1 to do it for him.

    Also, there isn't the option to have a multiplayer WC tournament - you can only pick one team to play as.

    I had such high hopes for this game but after 2 days it got taken back.

    Otto: "Here's another one: for YEARS I thought there was a verb "to misle" someone (pronounced 'my-zal'), meaning bamboozle, fool, cheat them, until one day someone asked me what the hell I was talking about when I said that I'd been my-zald (spelt 'misled')... cue ridicule and laughter at my expense. "Awry" was the other one, I always thought it was 'awe-ree' - this is what comes of reading too much and speaking too little when young."

    I thought the exact same thing about misled, and for the same reasons...

    I thought I was the only one *sniff*

    Yay Transformers - love 'em to death, me.

    The cartoon is REALLY cheesy and doesn't stand the test of time - there are some nice comic TPBs from Titan, though, and of course the new Dreamwave comic.

    Er... back on topic - Wave Race Blue Storm, not really my cup of tea.

    And all you sad Xbox fanboys? WE DON'T CARE WHAT YOU THINK mwahahahahahaha

  • Rogue Leader is UK's top pre-order

  • Divebomb 02/05/2002

    lol most impressive console game you've ever seen? Just upgraded your NES to GameCube, huh? There are dozens of Xbox and PS2 games (and other GameCube games) that are more impressive than this one

    Actually, I've used most consoles in my time, including PS2 and Xbox, so I ain't no 'fanboy'.

    For me, being a shameless Star Wars fan who has been very disappointed with recent SW gaming output, no other game - not Halo, not JSRF, not GTA3, not Devil May Cry - has impressed me more than Rogue Leader.

    It creates an atmosphere akin to the films, with such spot-on graphics and sound.

    Admittedly, it's "only" an update, but that doesn't make it any less impressive.

    In light of those recent comments, I'd like to amend my previous view of "Most impressive console game I've ever seen" to "shitty"

    Or, or not.

    Me and my bro share a house.

    He had a PS2 - we both thought the games, for the most part, were pap, with one or two exceptions. Very disappointed with the quality of the games.

    He chopped his PS2 in to get an Xbox at launch.

    I've preordered a GameCube.

    According to reports, the standalone price in Game/EB will be £129.99.

    And, as Whizzo said above, the Luigi's Mansion pack (GC, LM game, unofficial mem card) is £180 so that'd be £130 plus £40 plus £10? for the memory card.

    Looks like the price will be £130 after all :)

    "I am sure many were excited by the news yesterday, and will now blame us on the frontline for putting the price up by £10."

    Yeah, like we didn't blame you for putting the price up by £20 the first time, you greedy so-and-sos!

  • Halo review

  • Divebomb 24/04/2002

    I agree with most of Gestalt's points on Halo.

    It was being hyped as 'the best thing ever ever ever!!!11' but... it's not. It's a console FPS that does some things (graphics, storyline, co-op mode) very well, and other things (basically the entire second part of the game) badly.

    Sorry to add to the rumours, but I heard that Amazon wouldn't be getting any GameCubes delivered to customers for launch day, rather that the earliest Amazon orders would be fulfilled was the Tuesday (7th May) due to the Monday being a Bank Holiday. Reply 0
  • GameCube €199 / £129

  • Divebomb 22/04/2002

    This is amazing news!

    I didn't think the price would drop cos of the rumpus that the retailers pulled off when it was announced at £150.

    I preordered at Game on Saturday - hope they drop the price!
