Re: Difficulty levels now and then.

@the vulture, thanks mate i'll remember your wise words when I'm crying into my beer after playing Demon Souls again tonight! I've just got to man up and always remind myself that in days of yore even Treasure Island Dizzy was horribly frustrating too! @crusto, glad you managed to get it ordered! Y...

Re: Reliability

I must be very lucky as I'm still on my first 360 (old elite), PS3 (slim) and all sundry of my old consoles have never knackered out. The only prob i ever had was with my A1200 when the disk drive would always reset the computer on certain games which worked fine on my mates A1200. Dunno why! Maybe ...

Re: Difficulty levels now and then.

I'm toying with the idea of getting demons souls, despite the difficulty. I've heard so many good things about it and I normally like that type of game. Hopefully it will be worth it. Oh it's worth it, trust me.Had me hooked from the start.Tough game, yes, but not unfair, very rewarding.Never thoug...

Re: Your Holy Grail.

No question, not very original but it's the Star Wars cockpit for me. I had a complete love affair with that game when I was a nipper and never can resist having a go on one when I (rarely) see them now! BTW does anybody know if theres a version of Cabal that doesn't rely on analog tracker ball cont...

Re: If you hadn't gotten rid.

I do believe the only console I ever sold was my N64. Can't say I ever loved it that much! But reading this thread did bring back to me the fact that at my parents house I must still have my : 2600 woody with all paddles and box etc. Speccy 128k, MD, A1200, PS1 with a ton of games. All except my Dre...

Re: POLL - 3DS.

Each to their own , but my personal relationship with the console was that I had to demo it at work for weeks before it came out. I don't want to ever have to play Face Raiders, Pilot Wings or the AR cards again :cry: It gave me a headache and made me walk into a table. But so does ale I suppose and...

Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

Last night I bought Warhammer 4000 Kill Team on 360 XBLA after playing the demo and falling in love with it. Only 800 points too which is nice to see. I was going to get Ms Splosion Man but there's something about Twisted Pixel games that really get on my tits, think it might be the character desig...
