That's what made me chuckle. The idea that the spammer thinks we'll have never heard of the concept of a handheld mega drive before.

Finally turned pro on Wii Tennis, that didn't take forever! It gets stupidly hard on Pro, becoming a war of attrition. Rallies last forever. I played Nights on the Wii for 38 minutes tonight as I picked it up for well under a tenner. Now I know why it was so cheap. You'd think they'd actually put s...

With less than 20 copies in existence (blue cover), you are not going to stumble across it that often! That's ludicrous, why would so few be produced? :? Well, it's only the blue inlay that is actually rare. The cartridge and manual are the same as the classics version. I'm guessing they must have ...

:shock: £330 for a bloody football game - with 2 days to go :o Rare on not - thats just wrong :lol: The guy who's selling it is on ntsc-uk and a few there have bid on it. It's probably the rarest PAL md game. Last seen on ebay in 2003. Has to be the original blue box release though and not the cla...

I don't think, as a series, GTA has been overrated at all. I can't remember any major hype surrounding the first 2 games. III was rated highly (quite rightly). Vice City improved on III and so received high ratings. San Andreas improved (well expanded at least) on the GTA world. GTA IV has, IMHO, i...

Rez is a fun game to just chill through, but the level design is the genius of it. It's one of the best score attack shooters to learn properly, some of the score runs you can get are amazing. It becomes less about losing lives and more about resetting when you miss a combo. A perfect run through a...

So, you don't see what other gamers enjoy so much about it, well I don't see what people see in 90% of music out there, but that doesn't mean that the music they are listening to is overrated or censored, it just means it doesn't appeal to me. It's called taste, it's what makes us different, try to...

However, it does make me wonder if there have been any games that have done as antiriad says and linked scoring/energy boosts etc to the timing of actions in a shooting game. There's many games that I've played in the past doing this especially platform games. In fact I remember a video I saw somewh...

C=Style and GarryG please read the thread and stop making assumptions about my sense of rhythm or my interest in games as I don't want to repeat myself again. Maybe I feel let down by it as everything I've read about it before indicated that the music and timing of actions was vital to the game expe...

It certainly is a cop out and one of the annoying useless vague descriptions the game is often tagged with. This is why people expect something more than an on rails shooter. I don't know what they expect, but its some mythical beast you can 'feel' where you 'create the music' as you play. Bolocks....

I think you're making a slightly bigger deal out of it than it needs be. Rez is a great videogame, not some deep mystical experience, however it has gameplay by the bucketloads , one of them games you can play for 5 minutes or 5 hours. It's simplicity is what makes it great. I personally rate it's ...
