I played the demo, looks really interesting. Is it a top quality port of the DC game then? The visuals look really nice and high res in HDMI.

It is a cool port has to be said I prefer the "feel" of the DC version. It's also nice seeing all the cutscenes in English it seems a lot harder than the DC version too which is a good thing (1 credited the DC version on normal). Well worth 800 points though going to do a proper comparison this weekend

Xbox360 HD DVD add on (yes, I know it's 'dead tech', but I will be able to collect some damn good films in HD pretty cheaply in the not to distant future), with 1 HD DVD for £49.99 BRAND NEW in Gamestation.

I guess the great HD DVD stock dump is 'on'.

Hell yeah, and remember it's multi region.

Phantom Dust is said to be really good online, but I only played the offline mode and found the gameplay quite shallow and repetitive. But if you like these types of games it's a really great example of the genre for sure. Nice gfx too.

I've managed to find Mortal Kombat 3 and Crash Bandicoot 2 in very good shape at my local Cash Converters. 9£ for both games...
I was also very tempted to buy Guitar Hero 3, but I managed to resist the temptation... I still have Bioshock to play... :lol:

Just bought a Saturn with 7 games for £35. Could probably have got it a bit cheaper on e-bay but at least I have cleared that stain on my reputation that occured when I sold my Saturn collection 3 years ago. I claim temporary insanity on that one M'Lord. :?

I managed to get God of War 2 (£10) and Project Zero 3 (£7) today off of ebay, I also got a Xbox Live gold membership subscription so I can play online co-op and such as more and more games seem to be including more online content.

I'm looking to play Perfect Dark Zero co-op with someone but no-one wants to know, bar a load of random Mexicans who are for some strange reason drawn to this game :? If you're up for it then add me!

I was really surprised by Virtua Fighter on 32X, it really isn't too far behind the Saturn version and just as playable too. I love Virtua Racing on 32X most though, that and Star Wars Arcade. :)
