Looks good, watched this while listening to Man of the World by Fleetwood Mac, seemed very fitting.

EarlBassett, you said on the previous comments page that Safari is fine for accessing EG on the i-phone. I fail to understand why you're being so vehement towards this app. Clearly you don't need the app in the first place so why is price such an issue for you?

Not everything on the internet can be free.

Attention all ye naysayers, let us have a manly discussion.

The EG app is only 2 quid. Yes, that's right 2. What else costs 2?
Sandwiches, coffee, porn videos in one of those booths. The app costs 2 because there are no ads, it actually costs EG money to stream videos, since there are no ads in the app, you can do the math. It also allows the app to run quicker.

EG is also not a charity, you can sign up for the site for free and you do it on your own volition, purely your own choice, so is buying this app. You do not have to buy it to enjoy EG, you do not even have to buy the app if you want to access EG on the i-phone but if you want that access in a properly i-phone friendly, formatted environment, which somebody had to spent time and effort upon to create, then you can, by paying the tiny sum of 2.

Isn't this comparison stuff getting old now? Buy it for whichever console you prefer we're past the days of dodgy conversions.

Fuck Activision! The US get it in March and we have to wait until May??? After my kick pedal breaking, them not answering the my RMA requests and now the red pad not responding I'm developing a lot of hate for them...this better do Metallica justice[pun not intended].

Hopefully game companies will start to recognise how important Europe is. Ubisoft just announced that Europe is the most important region for them due to the Euro and Pound being much stronger than the dollar. As long as this continues it can only be a good thing and a matter of time.

Rock Band nets Metallica

Farty you clearly do not get Metallica, Why having spent the whole of their careers doing what they wanted to do, which no doubt was part of what attracted you to them in the first place would they suddenly say "Bob we love you, remake us in your image pls oh pls sir!"

Metallica do want they want to do and write whatever music they want to write, its part of what makes them great. If you don't like the music fair enough but do not blame Bob Rock or anyone else for Metallica changing. Finally when you've come to terms with your own shortcomings, go research Metallica and find out the truths about them because you are only speaking about what you've contrived in your head.

Metallica long outgrew trash metal, lazy journalism by the BBC! Bloody fools and anyone who thinks Bob Rock ruined Metallica is a short-sighted, narrow-minded fool. Cop on and listen to the music they made. It doesn't have to be always 10 minute long, double kick drum induced mania to be heavy. Ever heard of musicianship???
