James Bond Games

Having the house to myself last night I decided to play Goldeneye Reloaded on the PS3 as it's been sitting in my 'to play' pile for a few years. It's not bad either, the controls feel a little off but on the whole, quite good. However it did make me think that until now I had never played an officia...

Re: So, tell me about the original Nintendo Wii......

Hi David, Can I ask how did you hack your Wii? I did it some time ago but I've recently had to format the console. Someone did suggest using the 'bomb' method ?! Is there a youtube video? Lazy I know but my life is crazy busy at the moment so any pointers would be appreciated. As for game collecting...

Re: What grinds your gears ?

Another vote for the Hotmail inbox split. Navigating the hotmail account is tedious enough as it is with the amount of junk and spam that appears on a daily basis, but now with this 'focus' option.......it's become incredibly annoying. I'm now off to look at the settings........ :oops:

Re: console battle SEMI-FINAL 2 PLAYSTATION 2 VS XBOX 360

PS2. I'm no Sony fanboy, but the list of games I've missed due to not owning one is staggering. The 360 just makes me shrug my shoulders.

SNES. It's games library reads like a list of the Greatest games ever made (or most of them anyway)

Re: console battle QUARTER FINAL R3 PLAYSTATION 1 VS PLAYSTATION 2

PS2. It up there with Vectrex as a 'like to own at some point' console. While I have a PS1 and like to keep all of the Sony consoles together, I'd happily swap it for a PS2.

Re: console battle QUARTER FINAL R4 NINTENDO Wii VS XBOX 360

It's got to be the Wii for me. It's the console of choice at home, while my 360 gathers dust.

Re: console battle QUARTER FINAL R1 ATARI 2600 VS MASTER SYSTEM

The Atari 2600 kick-started my interest in 'video' games. Yet I was always envious of a Master System during my C64 days (I always remember reading a review of Operation Wolf on the MS which looked amazing) Master System for the win.

Re: console battle QUARTER FINAL R2 VECTREX VS SNES

This is a tough one. The SNES is an absolute classic machine and a good bet for the final. However the Vectrex is one if not the number one console I'd like to own. SNES but only by a whisker.

Re: whats your jobbie?

My Sunday morning dump was rather uneventful, a bit of ring sting due to the ruby from the night before but nothing I couldn't handle. I left the throne only for my wife to be to fall through the front door after her hen do and clamber into the recently vacated bathroom. My concerns for any left ove...

The 2600. It's a classic despite it's limitations. My (and many others) first experience with gaming.

Master System. The GS is just a doorstop. And a rubbish one at that.

Vectrex, by miles. It's unique, looks fantastic and holds my interest far more than the 7800.

Re: console battle first KO R8 NINTENDO Wii VS PLAYSTATION 4

Wii every time. Look past the shovel ware and there are some absolute classics on the system and when done correctly, the motion controls can be great fun which is a nice change from more 'traditional' control types. The Wii is also incredibly versatile with backwards compatibility, can emulate mult...

Re: console batlle first KO R6 NINTENDO 64 VS PLAYSTATION 2

This is the closest contest yet for me. I've always wanted a PS2 (its the top of my wanted list) and have missed out on so many classic games. Yet I've had so many good memories of N64 gaming and they really held my attention for some time considering the smaller library. N64 for me (just!)
