Re: Nintendo's 3DS

I guess this explains why Nintendo are so keen to phase out backwards comparability of cartridges. Why let people buy carts on Ebay for pennies that they won't make any money out of when they can skim more cash out of people for "virtual" copies of the game. Generally I agree with this, Ninty are g...

Re: Nintendo's 3DS

It is looking very tempting indeed but I thinki'll wait and see before jumping right in. I've just got my Ds Lite so I've got plenty of games still to play and discover. The other thing is I wonder how long it'll be before they bring out 3DS Lite and 3DS XL etc, I'd feel a little bit of a mug shelli...

Re: Christmas 2010 - Gaming goodness.....

I have no idea what's coming out. However, after another year of buying tons of games that I haven't even played, I might not bother intentionally getting any games for Christmas. Me too, I was hoping Skyward Sword would be out for Christmas. :( What I might do this year is break out some of those ...

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

You know, if it's been modded to make it NTSC-U instead of NTSC-J, it'd be possible to install a small switch in the back (through one of the holes) and have it switch between JP and US with ease. Very much like the N64 NTSC console mod. http://www.mmmonkey.co.uk/console/nintendo/gc-region.htm Save...

Re: Famous/big franchises that you've never tried?

I also have only Nintendo consoles. It does limit what I can play, but there are ways around that. I liked Assassin's Creed, for example, but on examination I found it played in a very similar way to the Prince Of Persia games - so rather than buy a 360 I simply picked up the Sands Of Time trilogy ...

Re: Famous/big franchises that you've never tried?

You really haven't played enough GTA have you. :wink: GTA games are synonymous with tongue-in-cheek. Ok cool, glad to hear it, that's what I'm hoping Chinatown Wars will be like, what with the cartoon look and all. Some of the video reviews I watched of it made it look very fun if you don't take it...

Re: Famous/big franchises that you've never tried?

Just a question.. Why limit yourself in scope to only Sony consoles? I'm not having a dig at you or anything like that, just really intrigued why you do this? imho you are missing out on an awful lot, nay ridiculous amount of gaming goodness. I'm in a similar boat, I pretty much limit myself to the...

Re: Famous/big franchises that you've never tried?

And GTA, well I'm not one for any entertainment glamorising criminal acts - same reason why I've never watched ANY mafia films. I kind of feel the same way, I have plenty of violent games, like Hitman, but the GTA games do seem overly villainous. I don't get the obsession some poeple have with stuf...

Re: Which book(s) are you currently reading?

After watching the film and playing the game, I thought it was about time I read From Russia with Love. Surprisingly Bond isn't in even it until about half way through, but it's still really good, lots of back story building up and fleshing out the Grant character. I also got the Bond Encyclopedia a...

Yeah still available, looking for something on the recent Nintendo consoles from GBA (including Gameboy/Colour games) onward. That's all I've got to play right now.
