    Sales figures will be undeserverdly poor.



    For example, I asked for it in Game last night and chap behind counter said "never heard of it, are you sure you've got that right".



    "It's new out today I said"



    "?" said his face



    Then another customer told him that he did have it on the shelf and pointed out the 1 copy they had. Filed in the A-Z rack with only it's spine on show.

    King of the Indies, I love both my DS & PSP and believe that both will succeed and that both deserve too. To me they offer different gaming experiences but I want both of those experiences.



    I think DS's GBA compatability will ensure it's future.



    PSP ?, simply do the coke/pespi test. People see my DS and PSP. The first one they go for is PSP. If Sony get the price right it'll be a success even if some don't think it deserves it.



    Good luck to them both.



    Oh and I'm no fanboy of either Company.



    Plus I'm available to hire if you want me to do some in store promo work ;)

    The button with the musical note on it appears to be a mute button - if you hold it in for a second.



    As for smudgey screens - don't touch it - it's not a DS you know.

  • Mizuguchi to head up Bandai's new games label

  • ReGuRgIt8oR 31/12/2004

    Been playing Lumines for last couple of days and have to say that I think it's a great puzzle game but in a puzzlem-up way doesn't offer any great new advances.



    The music however, even though I don't like Techno sort of stuff, is excellent, the tunes are addictive.



    It appears that the columns of the playing area are "channels" on a graphic equaliser and as you complete a block on a specific "channel" then it ups the corresponding graphic equaliser thingy to alter the tune.

    Remember to plug your PSP into your speakers for this one.



    Also the backdrops to the game are excellent with trendy techno pop video style effects that keep catching your eye whilst playing the game. Such as the lips on "Shake Ya Body" level.



    It also has various game modes -



    1p challenge - where you unlock "skins" - levels (tunes/backdrops)

    1p single skin - where you can play your favourite "skin" (level)

    1p puzzle - complete set shapes to complete puzzle

    1p vs CPU - split screen play off where you can unlock skins

    2p WLAN - 2p split screen play off



    Puzzle mode is quite good but tough - it tells you what shape to make (i.e dog, cross) but you only get a set time limit and it's easy to cock it up. Not got past the 4x4 square yet (only about puzzle level 6 ).

    mustard-sandwich, I've just checked on my PSP for charging over USB and it does not appear to charge.



    Battery charging indicator doesn't come on, Battery Status says battery "in use", charge % decreases over time, battery life timer decreases over time.

    Got my bundle on Friday - no gold ticket though :(



    So ... "Gold has always been closely associated with The Legend of Zelda" has it.....



    Well why the feck didn't you make the game cartridge gold so it matches the bloody SP then.

    For Link-Up play also bear in mind that it works with the GBA Wireless Adapters. Although this isn't mentioned on the packaging, in the manual or even in the game.... until you plug in a wireless adapter and then another option appears in multi-player. It does work, trust me.



    Plus, it works well and signal strength / range is reasonably generous.

    Well I quite like it an get to have regular 3 player games of it as my sons both like it and between us we've got two SP's and one GBA. I already had one link cable for use on Zelda WW, got second in with FF:CC and had to buy one more for from Dixons.



    Therefore my additional outlay was minimal, but I wouldn't advise anyone getting this if they had to acquire more than one extra SP to play it on.



    Not amazing but good fun.

    However what I'm really looking forward to is the next evolution of the 3D platformer, the one that really pushes the PS2, yes I mean Bunkum & Hogwash, the screen shots look ace.

  • Soul Calibur II

  • ReGuRgIt8oR 26/09/2003

    Nice review, brave score.



    It's the score I'd like to give it but doubt I'd have been brave enough to if I were Shinji (just look at the flak).



    All I can say is that it - IN MY OPINION -



    it is without doubt the best fighting game out there and the best incarnation of the series.



    I have owned many a beat em up but the three most played/most enjoyed were the 3 of the Soul Calibur series (by a long way).



    I agree with Shinji in that you will already know if the "style" of fighting is not to your taste, if so, stay away, otherwise buy it. It's that simple.



    Despite owning the Gamecube Jap version I'm struggling to resist buying this again :(

    Hi guys, Reg "Gurgy" here.



    Firstly I'd like to thank the Driver 3 Dev Team for all their hard work over the last few months, these include Renzo, Pjmaybe, Wopr, LaundroMat, FWB, Daryoon, Otto (Hi boss!), mentat, Tiger, Jabba, Jiro and mal. I'm sure the Edge review will make it all worthwhile.



    We truly value the input of the genuine gamers who have contributed to these discussions and, on the suggestion of LaundroMat, we've included a couple of you guys, including Amaarss, in the end game credits under "additional input".



    This evening I've given to ok for the press release to be sent out announcing that Driver 3 will go gold by the end of August for a full retail release on 12/09/03 (do you see what we did there), and after extensive discussions with Game UK stores it is exclusively available to pre-order from all Game stores from this Wednesday (13/08/03). Store managers should be updated by 9am on Wednesday but if they haven't received their memo then please ask them (nicely mind) to pre-order it under "Promotion Code 6".



    Well thanks once again and we look forward to your input when you play the game in September.



    Reg Tavistock

    Just make sure you get SC2 one way or another.



    Without doubt best fighting game I've ever played (but then I've said that about each one in the Blade/Calibur series)



    Graphically ace, sonically ace, playabally ace, controlablly ace and gameplayabally ace.



    I've got GC version and can confirm that controller is not an issue, and Link is very good, although not a character you'll end up choosing above all others.



    Multi-console owners should decide between GC and XB. XB just shades it graphically but Spawn does nothing for me.



    Eitherway buy it, thrash it and complete it.



    Gaming satisfaction on a shiny disc, and you can quote me on that.

  • ChampMan 4 storms to No.1

  • ReGuRgIt8oR 01/04/2003

    I am enjoying the game but I have serious doubts about it's calculations.



    After 12 games FWB would not be happy to see who's proping up the Premier League, which even I will concede isn't very realistic.



    Now I don't expect it to mimick the current actual league table but surely there are some teams that we all now roughly were they should be in the league, even after allowing for the effect a situation such as that found by Leeds.



    Surely playing the game straight out of the box the stats would be up to date and therefore the results more predictable than not. Obviously over time with people's different tactics/transfers etc then each team will alter and then the results could become somewhat different to the actual football results.



    Or am I missing the point ?



    I have listed a few odd results in the CM4 thread, but one stands out above all. 3 - 1 up after 71 minutes when my central midfielder was sent off. I then scored 5 times in last 19 mins to win 8-1.



    Scoring 5 times in 19 minutes when you are a man down ! That's the sort of thing Fifa has been criticised over for years.

    Over the last few days I've began to realise how truly remarkable BF1942 actually is.



    It has been criticised over the TK aspect but as can be seen by recent events it depicts the true horrors of war such as being killed by your own tanks, being downed by your own prat in an a-a gun, and some idiotic bloke throwing grenades around your own base camp.



    Amazing realism.

    It didn't really matter what the review said or score was. It's the value I give to the original game which makes it this way for me.



    I enjoy the original game enough that I want such official maps etc to enable me to play across the widest range of BF servers.



    I'll probably even get it for Xbox (if it ever arrives) simply so I can have a fix in the living room.
