"Why are we trying to reinvent gta 3/ halo2/ gears 2 etc etc?, lets just make the SAME GAME. /sigh. "

No, they are saying they followed the style and feel set out in Warcraft 3. To say Warcraft 3 and World of Warcraft are the same game because they look similiar is an incredibly daft thing to suggest, even more so when you consider two of the games you mention look extremely similiar to their forebears.

World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King

"The ability to start a Death Knight at level 55 on any server, as long as you have a character of that level or above"

To clarify, you actually need the level 55 character to be on the same server as you wish to create the DK. I know because I had to pay 15 to transfer one over (make sure to get yourself something nice with that, Blizzard).

Halo 2 and 12 months on Live for 60

Toby

14 years ago

Hmm. I'm intending to purchase another xbox when I get Halo 2 (for live), but I'm not sure what to do now. I assumed they'd have a bundle with the Limited Edition version of Halo 2, but that now seems to not be the case.

Yer, I agree. The review made it sound as if it was on a par with the original GTA, but it does seem to look much better (resolution aside).

Toby

This game looks far in advance of what the original GTA did graphically, from the screenshots it looks like proper 3d. Does it not actually look like that when playing it?

Half-Life 2 pre-load moves onto fifth phase

Toby

"Oh no! The lorry driver has stopped for a cup of tea!"

Heh.

"Errr, because presumably a lot of people are actually preloading it?"

Well presumably they don't need you to tell them, then. Slim has a point I suppose, as does swelt. I still think anyone who is downloading it would more than likely be keeping an eye on Steam or the Steam webpage, though.

I agree, why is everyone reporting on these preloads?

It's a bit like hearing that San Andreas is currently being duplicated. Now it's being wrapped. Now it's being put in a lorry. Now the lorry is driving to the distribution centre, etc.

Yer, the stress test is North American only.

Which I suppose is great news for all the North Americans who a) have already signed up to the WoW stress test and so already know about this, and b) read news exclusive to North America on EuroGamer.

Is there a Special Cup in Mario Kart?

Toby

15 years ago

For those of you who manage to get gold in 50cc, 100cc and 150cc championships for each of the three basic cups, Special Cup will open up

Not so. I got gold in 7 races (mushroom cup 50, 100, 150cc, flower cup 50, 100cc, star cup 50, 100cc) and then the special cup opened (star cup 100cc last). So I'm not sure if the trigger is seven golds, or 100cc in star cup... but you definitely don't have to win golds in all 9 races.

And as one of the more entertaining (not to mention profitable) videogame movie adaptations to date,

Sorry, but no. It was absolute rubbish. What there was of a story was nonsensical, the characters were dull and I was glad that most of them died, and the zombies looked more like stoners with the munchies than the undead.

Super Mario Bros. was more entertaining. Christ, SMB was more scary.

I suppose it comes from being born in the grim-north. Die Anderson, die!

GameCube cracked

Toby

16 years ago

I think part of the thinking on cracking the Cube was to do with the drive mechanism being able to read full size discs if youremoved the lid.

Forgetting the fact that you can buy mini-dvd's, or if you needed to just cut them down with scissors.
