Yes, the first film was awful! Never before has a single movie managed to kill 2 franchises (unless you count Freddie vs. Jason, although that was perhaps more of shooting a corpse :o ) I remember reading the review in Hot Dog mag.. " 'whoever wins, we lose' , absolutely hits the nail on the head" ...

Phew .. someone else who recognises what a great machine this was..


A machine junking itself 1 month after warranty ran out kind of slanted my view on the 360..

So.. who voted for the Jaguar? Come on.. dont be shy :o

I cried as well during that film because it was so bloody terrible :P

Or you could pour acid in your own eyes, which would be far more entertaining
Is it really so bad? Been watching series 6 on Bravo every day and getting quite into it..

Re: fallout 3

my last buy along these lines was Devil May Cry 4, hated every second of the 4 levels I played. I thought DMC was worth it just for that scene where you run along the length of that snake while its flying about then stab it in the head :D (I am easily pleased). Anyone remember that Aliens v Predato...

Well I didn't mean it was a good film, but just that it was better than the first one (but then I guess a static image of the Predator's a-hole for 90 minutes would have been an improvement over the first film! :o ) I for one am sad they never had a go at 'concrete jungle', not sure if there were an...

I've just started playing Dead Space, literall only 30 mins into it. It's pretty scary. Not as bad as Condemned but more intense than the later Resi games (except 4). I think with the improved graphical power of the new machines it's possible for the games to create a more intense experience. Just ...

I like to complete games, but I'm not one to try and get 100% every trophy/achievement or whatever just for the sake of it. For me, there was a difference between some older games that gave you the option for getting 100% completion (such as Super Mario World or Mario 64 for example) and new ones, w...

If Flower worth getting? Was going to download it then realised it was £6.99.. I wasn't that big a fan of Flow so I'm not sure whether I'll like this one.

No, but perhaps he is miffed that one of the few future releases from Sega that showed some promise and initiative by Sega has been put on hold, while we continue to get spineless, spoonfed games which are a poor shadow of previous releases (such as Sonic). I don't think of myself as a fanboy- I was...

I guess every dog has its day. The Simpsons was great for a time and place in our society, and I guess you could say the same thing about South Park - not saying that I don't watch these any more, and they still bring out some really funny episodes, but they don't seem to have the same vibe they onc...

Dag nammit.. was so looking forward to that game!

You can guarantee that AvP isn't going to set the world on fire.. its almost like 'Aliens is a bit niche now isnt it? That film was years ago - lets make use of the current liscence and pull in all the teenage pocket money'

Booo *sob*
