Also, I am stoked for this.
Hoping there will be a decent EG community of hunters.

My first Hitman game and I absolutely love it.
I think the episodic nature has worked very well - means I have re-played each level several times in order to get up to lvl20 Mastery on each one. Doubt I would have done that if I'd had it all at once.

How are the controls? (I skim read the article as it was all a bit nerdy for me)
The 360 release, which was a port of the mobile game, had atrocious controls. Steering cars was terrible because it was based on on/off button control rather than analogue sticks...

Nintendo adding pre-downloading to Wii U, starting with Super Smash Bros.

Alastair

I might be a thickie. But does this mean it simply sits in your queue till release day and then autodownloads at midnight, ready for you to play while nibbling your Weetabix (other breakfast cereals are available).
Or does it actually download in advance but only unlock to play on release day?

Samus and Zero Suit Samus costumes in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate

Hmm, I played about 170 hours on MH3U. About 150 on 3DS and 20 on WiiU. The text can't have been too bad as I haven't noticed it being a problem.
It certainly displays very small on my TV but it is readable (I'm using a component cable)

@erp Yes, I did.
But I can't say I noticed the text particularly. I was 5 pints of London Pride to the good and was feeling slightly disappointed that I was playing on an old-skool 3DS with no Circle Pad Pro...
In my experience the text in MH3U was OK on 3DS but bad on WiiU - this is currently only pencilled in for 3DS so don't stress it.

RE. EGX 2015 - don't abandon London. Many of us are unable to cross the forcefield that is the M25...
Although, where would it go? ExCel is like, in the middle of nowhere for going on to an afterparty. What about renting out the entire O2 dome?

I got some stickers last year. I'm not sure I could say they were the highlight of the day though.
Plus my attempt to charm the lady to let me take another spin crashed and burned... I will try harder this year.

I've played Classic Mentzer edition D&D and RuneQuest.
Personally I prefer DnD as it is more of a 'game'. RuneQuest feels more like a simulation - it gets over complicated in its need to have a skill for everything.

Ahh Labyrinth Lord, the retroclone of Classic DnD. Nice one!
Now you need to go download some of the classic TSR modules and play through The Keep on the Borderlands.

Most of what I've heard makes me think that it is the other players that make the online experience either great or awful.
There are a lot of jerks out there, but if you get to play with friends then it's bloody great!

I bloody loved Turok2 on N64. Zooming in through the fog with the Tek Bow, and of course the Cerebral Bore.
Took me bloody ages, but I completed it in the end.

"22 years ago..."

Blimey, I remember discovering Warlock of Firetop Mountain in a bookshop in London at least 30 years ago.

Battlefield 3: How Fan-Run Servers Are Ruining DICE's Game

Alastair

6 years ago

@psychokitten
Something of a disconnect between the journos and the forum community..? Or, maybe he's a PSN player.

I'm not a 'play every day' player, and I'm also not a hardened FPS player - BFBC2 was my first experience of an online shooter. I don't really have a problem with how the servers work. The server broweser seems to work OK - as soon as I see a server description listing any kind of banned weapons I know to skip on to another one.

Also, I have the EG Funtime Emporium and a couple of other EG linked servers (Jambi and Bibbo) favourited so I can usually find a game on a server I can trust.

I guess I've probably never been booted because I am not l33t enough to do anything to bother anyone. Who's gonna complain about me chucking out med and ammo packs? ;)

Shame to see none of the 'light gun' shooters mentioned, like RE:Darkside Chronicles or HotD:Overkill. They work perfectly on the Wii imo.

I enjoyed UC and got a fair way through, but not all the way... I like the collection aspect of the game - it definitely added to the replayability for me. And gave me a bit of a shock when I tried shooting all the fixtures and fittings in HotD:Overkill! :o)

I'd have thought the popularity of 'Farmville' on Facebook would show that there's a market for Harvest Moon type games here in the West.
