Edge announces top 100 games of all time.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/6261546.stm

Should be an interesting read then. I never voted.

Let the arguments commence! :D

(Halo in the top 10? No way!)

Do you have any actual facts to back statements like that up or are you just being awkward for the sake of it? How is he being awkward? There really is no reason Manhunt 2 should have been banned apart from the hysteria surrounding video game violence in the press. I watched Hannibal last night and...

If it does, we then know the BBFC banned Manhunt 2 purely because of press pressure. Great.

If it does, we then know the BBFC banned Manhunt 2 purely because of press pressure. Great. Have we had any evidence of pressure from the press before they judged the game themselves though? I do agree that GTA4 should get through easy enough, to ban it when it's likely to involve the same elements...

Much less a remake than a full blown sequel. And seriously, that Sony attitude of yours is really stupid. "OH NO! *insert company here" GOT HOLD OF A GAME I WANT! *CRIES*" How would you feel if a console manufacter got hold of a title, meaning you couldn't get it without shelling out several more h...

I'll answer my own topic! :D Just played iton my lunchbreak. Really nice visuals and a nice twist with how you move round a sphere (planet) and shoot the enemies and asteroids. Choice of 3 weapons is pretty cool too: One weapon is best for shooting rocks One is best for Ice rocks and the other remin...

More great press for videogames

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/northern_ireland/6253688.stm It's sad how these stories make it onto the BBC pages yet PS3 users using Folding@home to help find a cure for cancer amongst other things is never mentioned (well I've never seen one anyway). Bet the QA manager will get a kick up the arse tho...

Super Stardust HD

I'm downloading it now PSN (proabably finished by now). Working til 8 tonight so won't be able to play it for ages! Grrr :evil:

Anyone had a wee shot yet? I downloaded the trailer and it looks cracking, looks very frantic and visually very pleasing.

Thoughts anyone?

I find XBL Arcade is pretty good. All the games Dudley mentioned I think are definately worth downloading and I'm certain you'll end up purchasing a couple. Is it just me or are PS3 games to download slightly cheaper? (Bought MK2 and rampage the other day for £1.99 and Crash Bandicoot was £3.49) I...

My Green Hill Zone ringtone is awesome whatever you say. Haha. I'm thinking more the 'crazy frog' and so on. That however is a nice ringtone. I have Jin Kazama's music from Tekken 3 as mine at the moment, guess that makes me somewhat hypocritical. :D Well you win on one scale, the point of a ringto...

Yup. A 'huge' loss is relative to the person. So what is a 'huge' loss to somebody else may be insignificant to you and vice versa.
