Re: Emulation vs The real thing my opinion

Both have a place, I think. I don't think you could really make an argument that it's to different from the real thing, at least when you're talking about hooking up your megadrive to the XBOX, you've got a very similar gameplay experience. I tend to find the sound is never as good, but I think soun...

Re: There is hope, a new 2D Sonic game by SEGA

Don't forget it's not just about a simple case of "It can run 3D in one game so all games can run 3D"

If yu show me a game with the graphical style of Mario 64 but with the sense of speed and movement and environments you get from Sonic Adventure, I may conceed!

Re: Need for Speed: Shift

No idea if it will be good or not, dood but if they get rid of the whole blingy pikey rubbish and replace it with a driving game I'll probably give it a go. There's already a number of very good racing games fro the next gen systems though so whatever NFS does I think it's gonna have its work cut out.

Re: Definition of 'Rare'

Rare can also be a personal thing, dood! Like some guy on the what have you purchased thread was really happy becuase he found a copy of Dead Rising for the 360, whereas here you can buy like 1,000 of them from the local CEX. It's wasn't rare, but it was rare to him. Rare to me means either 'not rar...

Re: Where have all the Action hero's gone???

Hmm... absolutely ridiculous is the whole point of Action Heros, is it not? For me, the most stupidly impossible a stunt is and the less justication it gets, the more awesome it is to watch. If It wanted realistic explosions that obey the laws of physics and people who are strong but not super human...

Re: Do you buy game strategy guides?

This has been briefly spoke about before, but it's an interesting subject anyway... I personally never paid for a strategy guide. Firstly, I think they cost too much - normally another third onto the price of a new game. Secondly, although the internet might not be as pretty, having things like a se...

Re: Where have all the Action hero's gone???

I say bring back the old days... at least a little bit dood! Die Hard 4 proved those sorts of films still work, and we still get films like it - like Taken - but they're just not as corny. These days it seems like everyone with any strength/super power/awesome guns has to be a big whiney emo like Sp...

Re: Gamerbay needs your support guys...

Well i think Gamerbay is great ! Ive bought and sold on there with success,and i think people should be grateful that someone has gone to the trouble of creating it instead of sniping it. Of course its not Ebay and never will be. Ive never found it slow or difficult to navigate,sue there are a few ...

Re: Recommend me some sandbox style games for my 360.

Viva Pinata is a brilliant and underrated game dood... not exactly a sandbox game though! I can see where you are coming from though - it's a lot more deep and open than a lot of people give it credit for!

Dreamcasts can be notoriously hard to set up... I have a source that says actually have two wires... and that doesn't even include the controller :D

Re: Gamerbay needs your support guys...

I don't use Gamerbay. For me, I try to stay away from online auction sites as much as possible as it takes away much of the fun of collecting for me! However, when I do I use eBay becuase I know someone on eBay will have the game. As I'm not a seller all this talk about postage fees doesn't really a...

Re: PSP or DS? Which one shall I get??

Flashing a PSP is also not that hard... harder than a DS, but not like, rocket science providing you have the right model. But he said he's not going to do it dood.. I wouldn't reccomend looking in Game without a pinch of salt... they barely seem to stock PSP stuff around here, and although they hav...

Re: NTSC Nintendo Entertainment System – Where to find?

Not much of a suggestion I know dood but I've seen them a boot fairs before. You'd have to get lucky of course but if you're not looking for boxed stuff you might as well give wherever you local places are a quick look?

Re: There is hope, a new 2D Sonic game by SEGA

Anyone that got excited over Sonic Rivals/Heroes/Unleashed past the very earliest announcements... well, they get too easily excited. I remember seeing the big furry blue paw on the first teaser for unleashed and thinking... oh well, another bad sonic game. Funnily enough it was actually 20% of a go...
