Re: CheDonJohn's thread - N64 game boxes and manuals

I have a few N64 game boxes and manuals for sale (no cartridges), plus a few other bits and bobs. All in very good condition (were stored away for years). Will stick on here and if no interest then they'll go on ebay. Prices including P&P.

Re: Franchises and games you are surprised haven't returned

Not sure if surprised is the right word, or perhaps just disappointed, but I always expected a Knights of the Old Republic III. The Dark Force/Jedi Knight series probably could've churned out a few more, too. There absolutely needs to be a new Burnout game (and not an open-world one like Paradise wa...

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

Elite Dangerous - I have no idea what I'm doing! I picked up my first mission to buy some stuff for someone, but I'll be buggered if I can work out what gets sold where. I miss proper game manuals :( It's tough, isn't it?! I'd been waiting years for the PS4 release and it was the first game I'd pre...

Re: halo 5 wont install

I can't advise ob the error message but I can say that it took me a good day or more to install that game; I think it's a common thing with XBOne games but especially that one.

Vanquish was on 360 as well. Great game though.
Yes, you're right. Possibly also on PC, too? Not sure why I remembered it as a PS3 exclusive - maybe it just feels like a PS3 type of game.

Re: Reasons to get a PS3

My PS3 collection is probably my most cherished. It has pretty much all of the 360 games plus so much more. I've got it squashed into about 3 cupboards at the moment. Same here. I think the previous generation was probably the best I've experienced in terms of the range of quality games on offer. T...

Re: If you had your time again

I started with a second-hand Amstrad CPC-464 and didn't really have a choice (I was just grateful to have it!). If I could go back I would definitely have chosen an Amiga. Everything else since then - Master System, GameBoy, Mega Drive, Playstation, Dreamcast, PS2, PS3 and PS4 - I've been pleased wi...

Re: Highly rated games that you do not like.

The Metal Gear series. I liked MGS on the PS1, and number 2 was ok. Other than that, I just find them pretentious, with ridiculous plots. Agreed. I especially disliked MGS4; it's billed as a tactical espionage game, yet I found the stealth mechanic in Spiderman 2 to be more sophisticated and realis...

Re: The great big RG weight loss thread

Sorry if it's been mentioned before, but a useful tool for this kind of thing is an app called MyFitnessPal. I used it to put on weight after I lost over a stone in short period of time due to stress/depression, but it can be used for any goal. Basically it allows you to track all the food you eat a...

Re: football management games

I put many hours into Championship Manager back in the day. It was the cause of many fights in my house; one PC shared between two brothers who were addicted to the game. It was certainly an institution back then, Everyone I knew played it; people at school would often talk about their teams and tac...

Re: Blade Runner 2049 Trailer

[After Trailer] Hmmmmmm. From the slither of footage we have seen I'm loving the look of the film, its tone, the music and so on. Still sceptical though. And is Deckard a Replicant? I guess not, if he's that old - don't replicants have a short lifespan of something like 4-6 years. Unless Ford is pl...

Re: The Star Wars thread

I have a huge collection of figures from the 90s/00s - problem was, I was naive at the time and took almost all of them out of their boxes. I shudder to think what the collection might sell for now, given that I don't have any interest in keeping them. My favourite line was the Expanded Universe ran...

Re: New Rogue One Trailer

We know nothing about Finn prior to his first mission. He could have been (and probably was) having issues long before this. Yes, the presentation does make it seem like a fast turnaround, but not half as bad as Anakin's improbable sudden fall to the dark side. If anything, the latter makes Finn en...

Re: New Rogue One Trailer

I thought it was excellent and so much better than Force Awakens. FA was just one deus ex machina after another. Even in fantasy (which SW is; it's not sci-fi) you have to stick to the rules. By all means decide what those rules are, but you still must stick to them if you are to have a believable a...
