Re: What single game have you re-played the most over the years?

Quake has been the game that I've gone back to the most since the late 90's, but in recent years my most played game has probably been COD MW2. :|

Other contenders would be SOR2, Sega Rally & Resident Evil.

Re: Project Y - New Megadrive game

Pre-ordered this the other day, got the price down to $70.50 with a promo code and redeeming whatever Gems I had left on my account.

Looks really good, hopefully it won't be a disappointment like Sonic 4! :?

Re: PS4 V XBone

I've had an Xbone since launch day. I've had quite a lot of issues: - the Kinnect sometimes doesn't power up unless I reset the console - it's recently started saying I'm not connected to XBL and won't let me play online - even though it shows me friends online etc, forcing me to 'go offline' and th...

This finally turned up yesterday, after pre-ordering it about 9 months ago!

They manufacture these games at such a high standard, I think even better quality than retail releases.

Re: Need For Speed - the reboot

Criterion's Need for Speed Hot Pursuit 2010 was amazing. Haven't played any of them since that. It's never been a great racing series, always changing direction from one game to the next and only sometimes getting it right.

Re: Boxing games

Favourite boxing game of all time is Fight Night Round 3 on Xbox 360. My amazing career boxer eventually got old, weak and pulverised in every fight. For some reason I didn't like the sequels as much, I think the control method changed?

Also I really liked Rocky and Rocky Legends, on any platform.

Re: PS2 Component Cable

I got a £5 PS2 component cable from Amazon recently, to see what Outrun 2 and Gran Tursimo 4 looked like. Using the PS2 on a 40" Samsung LCD the picture and text was a lot clearer than the standard scart cable. Considering the cost of the cable, can't see a reason not to opt for component.

Re: 'In the zone'

- Nailing a 'clean' race in PGR , hitting every apex cleanly and overtaking opponents without touching. Weird that you mention PGR - as soon as I saw the thread title, PGR was the first game that came to mind. I remember having an online race in PGR3 when XBox 360 had just been launched. I was driv...

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

Yesterday I pre-ordered Pier Solar for the Dreamcast, which was £33. Really impressed with the previous Mega Drive release and soundtrack, so hoping the DC package is going to be just as good!

Re: Worst game bundled with a console/computer/whatever

Sega Classics Arcade Collection with the Mega CD. You pay out for a Mega CD and receive a compilation of games which you could have already played on your Mega Drive. Brilliant.

The games themselves are good though.

Re: Xbox One year ....er .... one

Out of three controllers I've had for the Xbone, 2 of them have had faulty left analogue sticks. There is a plastic clip inside which apparently brakes free and just rattles around inside, the left stick then won't reset to its central position properly. The left stick on the third controller is als...

Re: New alien game?

Completed the game a couple of days ago and thought it was really good, my favourite game this year. It's not flawless but it had some very tense moments, especially in the first half of the game. I felt a lot more relaxed once I got my hands on the flame thrower. The only real downside was the endi...
