    Regarding the lag, there were some users complaining about the delay in turning the wheel and what showed on screen in the Forza forums after the E3 showing, the guy playing said it fine in real life, the delay only appeared when the video was encoded.... could be the same here me thinks Reply 0

    @Kanga & farticus

    I hear what you're saying, you guys look like you know your stuff :)

    Just basing what I was saying on some sparring I've done with an ex pro... He was tellin me to try and hit him and pointed out that it was easy for him to read me cause there was no variation in the speed of my punching, basically everthing i did was at full speed which left no element of suprise and as a result nothing for him to think about. Like I said, I'm no expert, I'm just repeating some one who know what they're talkin about and passin it off as my own knowledge :)

    Prob didn't remember it right either...

    Anyhoo, didn't get chance to go and get it today, hopefully will tomorrow

    Sticks only give you one level of punching speed and power too. You gain momentum by using body movement. Punches are as much about hips and stance as they are arms.

    No entirely true...hips and stance I agree with their importance, particularly when it come to power, hoever the sticks allow you to vary the speed at which you throw the punches... the snap at the end of the movement if you will. Push the stick slower, you produce a slower jab than if you push it up quickly.

    Boxing (I'm no expert!) is about varying the speed of your attacks as well as the type... if you throw the same speed jab at an opponent all the time, he's gonna work you out pretty quickly and pick you off.

    That said, aren't the 360 buttons analogue anyway? I know the old xbox ones are.

  • el-bandito 02/07/2007


    I thought MS did have a big say in what the charges are. Epic mentioned they wanted the Gears maps to be free, but MS would only agree to them being free after a certain period. I'm sure they said something along the lines of "It's their Marketplace, they can charge what they want"

    Could be wrong though... it's early :)

    Edit: May be different as MS was the publisher for Gears I suppose...

    I doesn't work to well on your lap IMO... does work better if you leave the base clamp on though, you can grip it between your legs then.

    As for the demo... poor... the framerate is possibly the worst I've seen on a console racing game... dreadful.

  • Test Drive Unlimited

  • el-bandito 04/05/2006

    What I really want to know about, is whether or not this game is as good as the previous best point to point racer to date, in my opinion; the 3DO version of Road & Track's Need for Speed?

    Damn I still love that game, and I'm sensing a very similar, albeit slightly better looking, gameplay experience in Test Drive Unlimited.

    Exactly what I'm thinking/hoping!

    I've resisted the urge to buy a 3DO on ebay as I know it won't live up to my memories... tryin to get the diablo to 202mph before a car pulls in front and wipes you out on the first city section :-)

    I'm guessin the spectacluar rolls will be gone (stupid car licences) but if it feels anything like I remember nfs 3DO... I will be one very happy bunny!

    >Far Cry was good for some bits but the endless repeats of the 5 same AI phrases just totally ruined my >fun.
    >"I'm gonna rip you a new one!!"

    Gotta say... that's where Halo really kicked ass... I loved the ramblings them little dudes came out with... I was still hearing new phrases 3rd time round (18th round the library!)

    Don't think I noticed it so much on Halo 2 though...

    Back to the point... smells a little of Kill Bill to me... let's cut it half and sell it twice...

  • X360 runs Halo 1/2 from day one

  • el-bandito 18/10/2005


    I don't think the high def is stripped from the game code... the option to set your xbox to HD has been disabled in the EU xbox dashboard.

    Has anyone with a chipped box run a pal copy of Halo in HD?

    Would be a nice if your xbox games run HD on the 360...

    In case you haven't noticed... that's $300 NOT £300.... I'd guess at £199 if it's $300 over the water... Reply 0

    "stuttering issue"

    I had terrible stuttering on my PC as well, even just when shooting someone, nevermind moving anywhere (XP2500, 768MB RAM), I found a disk defrag, playing offline and disabling my av scanner got rid of 90% of it

  • el-bandito 20/04/2005

    Dud-Box, maybe (prehaps some licencing fee would add a small amount to cost)... but then the PS2 and Xbox are the same price... a memory card and the dvd play back kit are the same price-ish... you HAVE to fork out to save a game, an xbox owner has the choice of adding dvd play-back functionality.

    Out of interest... did you buy a remote control for you PS2?

    Hmmm... I'm sounding like a tw@t... going to stop now... apologies...

    I seem to remember DICE saying that there's no way that they could do Rallisport Challenge 1/2 without the HDD...

    As for all this crippling talk... do you honestly not think that MS have thoroughly investigated/tested this?? let's just wait and see eh...

  • Burnout back for Revenge

  • el-bandito 06/04/2005

    By far the biggest problem with B3's crash mode was this...


    and it doesn't show up at the end! This makes the crash mode completely null and void when my mates come round... what's the point... B2 crash gets played everytime.

    What I'd like is a mix of the 2... drop the multipliers and all that bollox... the multiplier should be the number of vehicles involved again... but keep the aftertouch and definately the crash breaker!!! blowing stuff up is cool ;-)
