Re: Red Dead Redemption

I don't know about that. Gunslinger has failed to grab me as the earlier Juarez games did, but I don't think any of them quite matches Red Dead Redemption overall. The preacher is the one strong point in those games, such a great character. Since we're on cowboy games, Red Dead Revolver just didn't...

Re: Whats your favorite xmas film?

The Snowman is my absolute favourite. I also love Die Hard 1 & 2, Gremlins, It's A Wonderful Life, Elf and Home Alone. I've still never seen Nightmare Before Christmas but I've heard that it's brilliant. I think what's key is that all of those films are great regardless of the Christmas theme, with ...

Re: Red Dead Redemption

I thought it was a good game, not a great one. Like all of Rockstars most recent titles, it received some inflated scores; and like GTA IV, GTA IV, LA Noire and Max Payne 3, it suffered from the same issues - frustrating controls and camera (especially when on foot), too much filler and dragging out...

Re: What game or games you would give 100%

Tetris and Portal (the first one).

I can't think of any faults with those games, or ways to improve them.

Re: Best cheap tablet

Other than that, the Hudl 2 has the best specs to price ratio to date. It has some Tesco bloat ware but you can easily download another launcher instead and banish it from your sight. How easy is it to do? I really like the look of the Hudl 2 but the many reviews criticising the bloatware has put m...

Re: Best cheap tablet

Don't all long hauls flights come with in-flight entertainment these days?. Yes that's true, but I have some particular films and documentaries that I want to watch, and the approx. 24 hours of flight time there and back gives me the perfect opportunity to watch them! Just don't seem to find the ti...

Best cheap tablet

In a couple of weeks I'm heading to Singapore (and possibly to Japan next April). So far my longest flight has been 5 hours so this will shatter that record. To help overcome the tedium of air travel I thought I'd pick up a cheap android tablet so that I can watch a few of films and documentaries th...

Re: Games that don't get the attention they deserve

Too Human - xbox 360. One of the best games of the last generation, possibly of all time and horrendously overlooked by many. Prey - xbox 360. At first you think same old same old but actually it's a pretty unique FPS with a really good 'look' to it Played Prey a few years ago and loved it, so uniq...

Re: Best Snacks for Gaming

Beluga caviar and European white truffle, washed down with a glass of Domaine Romanée-Conti.

Or, Yorkshire tea and Club biscuits. Depends what mood I'm in.

Re: So what is your best FPS then?

Hard to look past HL2, isn't it? For me it's almost a given. So, aside from that I'd probably say Dark Forces - just something about it that's always stuck with me. Bioshock not far behind. Honourable mentions for Bulletstorm, The Darkness 2 and Resistance 3. I know they're by no means classics but ...

Re: Scariest gaming moments of all time

There's a great moment in F.E.A.R. when you have to descend down a ladder. As you turn around and make your first step down, the girl suddenly appears right above you, but you can only catch a short glimpse as your head/view dips below the ledge. If you pop back up immediately she is gone. Almost ga...

Re: Diablo 3 - Reaper of Souls

Apologies if it's been suggested/done already and I've missed it, but I'm wondering if it's worth creating a list - maybe Koopa can edit his first post so it's at the top of the first page - of players, platform and their tag/ID? I'd like to get all my characters up to level 70 eventually so it woul...

Re: Would you vote for a stand alone England?

....Everyone would suffer from dissolving the union, but England would suffer the least. What would be a problem is if London and the South East ever decided to bid for independence - then we would all be really screwed. I think the UK, outside of the South East, would do very nicely for it's self ...
