  • Retrospective: Treasure Island Dizzy

  • GREASYL0VER 04/12/2011

    I used to love the Dizzy games on my old Spectrum.

    I think Fantasy Land Dizzy was my favourite although I never completed one.

  • Mario Kart 7 3DS UK price roundup

  • GREASYL0VER 03/12/2011

    I do not know how Game/Gamestation can compete anymore.

    I burst out laughing when I walked into the store and saw Mario Kart 7 for £37.99.

    The fact that they no longer price match the Supermarkets and they are now fussy abut returning games because of online codes, it's only a matter of time before they go bust.

    I feel sorry for the oblivious parents/relatives who think that there is no alternative for buying games and blindly pay their extortionate prices.

    I've recently joined Lovefilm and decided against buying games, unless it's a AAA title. For all the filler I usually buy during the year I'm just going to get them thru Lovefilm, be interesting to see how quickly I get titles.

  • The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Review

  • GREASYL0VER 11/11/2011

    I want to buy this, I really do, however I've never really played that much of Twilight Princess, and I've got Ocarina 3DS which I've barely scratched the surface of either.

    Sadly my gaming life is limited to games that can be completed in 6 hours or so like MW2, or games you can jump in and out of like FIFA/Forza etc.

    There is a wealth of games out at the moment that sadly for me will go unplayed.

  • The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Review

    Pardon my complete ignorance, but is this game a sequel/prequel to that Oblivion game that came out early in the Xbox 360 life cycle? Reply +1
  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Review

  • GREASYL0VER 08/11/2011

    So no spoilers in the review then, apart from describing pretty much every level and set piece in the game?

    Well done.

    Really enjoyed the golf, didn't think the tennis was as good as the Wii Sports version. Reply 0
  • Microsoft closes Xbox Live beta signup

    Good, the last major dashboard update was a great addition, so here's hoping for more of the same.

    I managed to get registered yesterday so hopefully that means I'll get the sneak peak!

  • HMV: Trade FIFA 12 get PES 2012 for 99p

  • GREASYL0VER 12/10/2011

    I've often wondered this, however if I trade-in FIFA 12 for PES 2012 and decide that I've made a mistake and that I much prefer FIFA (which I might). Can I take PES 2012 back and say give me my (or a) copy of FIFA 12 back instead (effectively a refund)? Reply 0

  • Retrospective: Formula One Grand Prix

  • GREASYL0VER 02/10/2011

    This was an amazing day back in the day.



    I remember me, my brother and my dad used to play full race distance Grand Prix's at the weekends. Awesome.



    I remember the long bus trip to go and get the game, and I also remember getting years out of it and updating the cars so they looked right the next season.



    I used to like the US track in the game, Phoenix I think it was.



    Good times.



    However, no doubt people would be just as anal about this game as they are about F1 2010/11 if it was released today, we all need something to moan about don't we?

  • PES 2012

  • GREASYL0VER 29/09/2011

    @roz123 makes a very good point.

    Both games have their flaws, and it's about what each person finds the most entertaining.

    I was a PES fan on the PS1, me and my mates played it religiously, however I turned to FIFA from about FIFA 09 onwards and haven't enjoyed PES as much since. The problem for me was my mate hates FIFA with a passion, so now the best thing about it, playing a good game with your mates isn't the same because we want different things from a football game.

    I like PES 2012 enough this year (based on the demo) to give it a good go this year, I might still buy FIFA to see if it's better than FIFA 11, which to me was a disappointment after the excellent FIFA 10.

    Anyway, I'm boring myself now ...

    Where's the cheapest place to pre-order these?

    Dipped into Ico briefly and never played SotC.

  • Star Fox 64 3D

  • GREASYL0VER 02/09/2011

    If this is out today I might pick it up, don't think I ever got into the original. My N64 basically only existed for Mario Kart, ISS 64/98 and Goldeneye. Reply 0
  • F1 2011 gets safety car

  • GREASYL0VER 17/08/2011

    Great news ... if only I can find the time to complete a season.

    I think in F1 2010 the biggest problem I had was trying full practice and qually sessions - too time consuming.

    One great addition would be something that dynamically evaluated the difficulty level you should be playing at based on a few initial laps with a particular car.

  • Retrospective: Animal Crossing

  • GREASYL0VER 16/08/2011

    @metalangel - it's funny how a game about life doesn't appreciate that some people actually have ... a life :o)



    However I did notice today that on the Wii version it was sunny in the game when it was sunny outside, then the heavens poured for a while this afternoon, and the same happened in game. It dried up in the game when it dried up outside. Now whether this is just sheer coincidence, or whether the Wii (being online) pulls in local weather, I don't know ... either way, I was quite impressed.

    One thing I'm noticing playing Animal Crossing on the Wii is that it doesn't really lend itself to people who work during the day!

    I've just put the game on and wandered over to Tom Nook's and he's shut (just after 10pm). Given that I've only just started that means there is pretty much naff all for me to do as I have no shovel, no net and no money!

    What a wonderful article about a game that I remember fondly from the GC days.

    The article inspired me to try the Wii version and whilst I doubt I'll have the time to play this version, I'll get enough time on it to remember how much of a b@stard Tom Nook was!

    I wish I had the time to play this like I used to with the old CM games in the olden days.

    The last one I had the time to really get into was CM01/02.

  • UK Nintendo 3DS price cut roundup

  • GREASYL0VER 12/08/2011

    The battery life is terrible. I charges mine up this afternoon, spent about an hour on Pilotwings, an hour with Mii Creator, Nintendogs and the Store and another hour on Zelda and flat as a pancake! Reply +1
  • GREASYL0VER 12/08/2011

    Gamestation pricematched Sainsbury's and gave me the 3DS for 120 and Zelda for 25. They even threw in a collectors golf pre-order box for Zelda.



    I also got Pilotwings and Nintendogs + Cats cheap as chips off the Interweb. Very happy with the lot.

    After reading about this this morning I have decided to take the plunge and buy one.



    I took a few games into Gamestation and my old DS Lite. As usual they are quite prepared to r@pe you for trade-in prices, however using the HMV iPhone App I was able to get 41 for my DS Lite, 15 for Mario Kart and 14 for Mario 64 DS. Not to mention a few old 360 games I traded in and I've finished up with 120 on the card.



    I just need to try and get them to price match the Supermarkets tomorrow and should be good to go. However, they might use the excuse that as the Supermarket aren't offering the "Zelda Bundle" then they can't do it. The way these stores rip you off I would really like to see them all go bust.



    Zavvi Outlet on eBay are selling a number of 3DS games for 15 ... that's pretty decent.

    Shame ... I only just started playing 007 - Blood Stone and the brief shot I had of it was good fun.

    Hopefully they'll spring up somewhere again before long.

    I loved the first Mario Galaxy, but I've not made it past the first level on this one, just haven't had the time nor inclination to play it.

    New Year Resolution for 2011 - play Mario Galaxy 2.
