Let me know if the Pinball is any good - ive been avoiding the price but if the game is worth it I'll relent - if its better than Pinball Dreams / Fantasies.

Picked up a hell of a lot in the game sale but missed some pretty basic stuff. Ah well , I can go to our local Cex and pay 4 or 5 times the 'sale' prices :evil:
Just been giving it a runout for half an hour. My first impressions of it are that the tables are very accurate (at least to the two i've played for real) and ball physics are spot on. Controls are a cinch, shoulder buttons for flippers, analogue stick for plunger and tilting. Works well. I can't decide which of the 5 views i like the most, but i haven't yet tried the option to play with the screen in vertical mode.... i can see me losing a lot of time with it, tbh :D I'd say its worth the money.....but then i'm notoriously biased towards video pinball games in general :wink: It's one of those games that'll be tricky to find later on down the line too, i reckon.

I can't compare it to Pinball Dreams/ Fantasies...i haven't played it (them) on the PSP.

I got PD/PF from the PSN about 2 years ago , a bargain at £2.00 I think. Not sure if theyre still on there - under the mini's. Worth investing if you liked them years ago.

It's very good. Doesn't have quite the replay value of Hotel Dusk but I thought it had a better story overall and quite a satisfying feel good ending. A couple of nasty puzzles towards the end though, I think I worked one of them out more by accident than actually understanding it properly. :lol: The 'music box' puzzle in particular is a right pain in the backside even when you know what to do....

Decided 'bugger it, I've worked hard this week' and have gone and ordered Skyward Sword (for a second chance!) and Super Pokemon Rumble for £29 (after ShopTo discounts). Also - hopefully! - have the original MySims Wii on the way, after I spotted a seller on Amazon who had it up for £0.01 (plus £2.03 postage).

I've also just got Meteos from Guybrush (in a trade for Starfox Command0, and will likely head into town tomorrow and see what GAME have left.

If you like Hotel Dusk then Last Window is a must. Both games are absolute must-haves on the DS, at least if you can stand adventure games.

It's great, immediately unsealed and listened to it. Lovely CD! It does say on the back it's from ONM (back when they used to give away good gifts) but I wasn't a reader then, so it has worked out great :lol: incidentally it is branded Nintendo Soundtrack Series.. were there others?!

Just 2 others that I'm aware of (that I have) that were also free gifts with ONM, one's The Legend Of Zelda: Minuets Of Time which has got tracks ranging from the original game up to Wind Waker on it, and also Donkey Konga: The Hottest Hits which has got the Nintendo-themed tracks from the original Donkey Konga on it (as well as the DK Rap :evil: but you have to take the rough with the smooth :lol: ).
