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

I just picked up Metro 2033 for a tenner in CEX.....Just about to go off and play it, so no idea what it's like yet. Apparently I can look forward to stomping around tunnels killing mutants whilst wearing a gasmask! That's got to be fun! :D

Re: What game have you COMPLETED this week

Bioshock 2...almost as good as the first one, but not quite...not quite sure why it's not either...Maybe just a case of "seen it all before"? Still, very enjoyable...will need to pick up the DLC and see if it's any good!

Re: Your top 5 Rare games

I think it's a stretch to say that Rare have completely lost the plot - they still produce some good games. But if you grew up in the 90s you'll have noticed a definite decline. Just a quick word to say that the above was a mis-quote..killbot said it not me! That's just for people who don't read en...

Re: Your top 5 Rare games

1. Perfect Dark 2. Goldeneye 3. Kameo 4. Blast Corp 5. Banjo Kazooie - Nuts and Bolts (which may be controversial, but I've had excellent fun playing around with it!) I don't really understand how people say Rare have gotten a bit crap....if you actually play their latest stuff, it's all still reall...

Re: What Comics did you read as a kid?

I'd completely forgotten about Scream, it was properly scary as a kid, I'd love to read them again and see if I was just being a wuss. Without looking on the 'net I remember stories about a murderous, hunchback retard called 'Uncle Terry' who was locked away in someones attic, The 13th Floor (can o...

Re: final fantasy games what one do you think is the best

VII was the first one I played, and the first proper JRPG I'd ever played...it's probably the best storywise, although I do like the more traditional fantasy feel of FFIX, with it's Scottish dwarves and monkey-tailed hero....

Oh, and FFVI definitely has the best soundtrack! :D

Games for Halloween....

Every year I like to play spooky, horror filled games to get me in the mood for Halloween, and I'm always looking for new suggestions so I can find stuff I may have missed or forgotten about...so any ideas? Here's a few that I've been playing this week to start off with... Invasion Of The Zombie Mon...

Re: Best possible game remakes?

I'd love to see a remake of the N64's Body Harvest ...it would be really good if done properly, a mix of GTA , Earth Defense Force and Fallout 3 perhaps? And I would also like to see Dizzy make a comeback and get the respect he deserves for funding Codemasters....XBLA or PSN would be the ideal place...

Re: Gamecube - your favourite title and collecting

I love my Gamecube, and have recently been playing through all my old games as my Mum just got a Wii and I thought I'd stick some on to check out the backwards compatability... Animal Crossing got played a lot back in the day, but eventually the repetition got to me and having recently visited my to...

Re: Are there any original xbox collectors on here?.

OK - for fun - everyone name there number 1 brawler on original Xbox :?: Seeing as it's the only one I own, I have to go for Kung Fu Chaos - which I am sure is NOT the best - but like I said it's all I've played :oops: As it's the only one I've played on the Xbox, it'll have to be Dead Or Alive 3 ....
