Re: Franchises/series' that rediscovered lost form

Re: New forum - issues and complaints

Re: End-of-game bosses that are rubbish

the most disappointing final boss for me is a recent one,Rage. part way through you fight a giant mutant and i was left thinking what the hell is the final boss going to be like ? you do the final mission fight a some relatively easy enemies saving your best weaponry and ammo for what must surely co...

Re: Buying games and never getting round to playing them?

like others in the thread i have a lot of unplayed games,mostly on ps2 but there are also ps1,3,gamecube,xbox and psp games.the rpg's alone could probably take up many months of game time alone.

Re: The hardest games of all time

i think the hardest game that i've ever completed is Batman Returns on the mega drive,a good example of risk and reward (do i try to get the difficult to reach extra life or will it cost me two lives to get it?) and weapon management (saving the weapons that work best for the boss on that level).it ...

If so props to Activison then. I just assumed nobody did this. Aswell as peoples names an inteligent AI system c...
