  1. Yep. Just got back today from being away for a few days. I'm very happy with the games, you kept them in great condition! And that was the best packaging I've ever seen! Thanks.

  2. Rate the last film you saw

    Forrest Gump 8/10 I actually only saw this for the first time a couple of days ago. Very enjoyable. Tom Hanks is brilliant, he really makes you feel for his character. Full Metal Jacket 9/10 Awesome film. The first part of the film is both incredibly funny and disturbing come the end as the men go through training. The second half was equally as enjoyable as the recruits battle their way through Vietnam. Goldfinger 8/10 In my opinion, not quite as good as some of Brosnan's, but that's probably becuase I grew up with them and had one gold cartridge for the N64. However, it was still very impressive, both funny and exciting. Great theme song. Gangs of New York 6/10 Not one of Scorsese's best, but it has some decent moments, mainly Daniel Day Lewis. But it's long and it goes a little over the top at times. Rear Window 9.5/10 Wonderfully crafted and charming Hitchcock classic.
  3. Mario Kart Wii

    Through the dirt patches I use mushrooms. I begin the run by going on the far left and collecting the three coins over the jump.
  4. Mario Kart Wii

    I had a go at the comp on the first day and managed to get 56.7xx I think. It was quite fun, I wouldn't have minded having more time to improve.
  5. Mario Kart Wii

    So Dazzybee, when's the next 12 player MK session? Can we make one this week, so I can make a rare appearance before I go back to uni?
  6. Game aspects that really annoy you

    Mario Kart Wii - You can't see your best lap time for each course on the records screen, you have to complete a 3 lap run to be able to see it. Terrible for a racing game.
  7. Rate the last film you saw

    Haha, don't worry I'm not, 7 = Good. I thought they were good, but not brilliant.
  8. Rate the last film you saw

    Well, I just watched those two after seeing them ranked highly in Empire's Top 500, so maybe I was expecting too much. My first impression wasn't great, but 7 is not a bad score. Perhaps when I come to re-watch them, my opinion may improve.
  9. Rate the last film you saw

    Original Star Wars Trilogy I just bought the new boxset and re-watched the original three for the first time in a long time and I thoroughly enjoyed them. Each is a perfect two hours long and combines great story, character, action and humour. For me it's very difficult to seperate the three in terms of quality, as I like Return Of The Jedi just as much as the first two. And yes, everyone should see Star Wars! 9.5/10 Goodfellas Tremendous film. A superbly flowing story of the life of Henry Hill: "As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a gangster". 9/10 Heat Another film I really enjoyed. Al Pacino and Robert De Niro squaring off over a coffee is classic and the shoot out after the bank robbery is brilliant. 9/10 Pulp Fiction I didn't think this was as good as it's reputed to be. I didn't really enjoy the mis-match of stories, but the script and action is good. 7/10 Fargo Not brilliant, but still interesting and enjoyable to watch. 7/10
  10. The University Thread 08/09

    There's societies for just about everything isn't there? The obvious one for me is football and I guess I'll see what else is up once I get there.
  11. The University Thread 08/09

    Hey I'm off to Kent on the 21st and from what I've read so are Twozzok and Dom? You guys are 1st years as well then? I'm probably going to pay for my accomodation online tomorrow, as I also read somewhere the deadline was the 20th, but is that incorrect? I guess earlier the better to pay though. I hope I've got everything sorted, I'm kinda worried I've missed something important on an e-mail or letter.
  12. Mario Kart Wii

    It's a hacked time. There are a lot of hackers about at the moment. The true champion is Mick with 2:20.xxx. Unfortunatly hackers are currently invading the rankings and online. Nintendo get rid of them from the rankings ASAP, but they come back quickly It really is sad and annoying since I should be No.1 on Luigi Circuit and not some hacker! Least the new comp looks great!
  13. Mario Kart Wii

    Thanks guys, I hope I can finally play in a session this Thursday
  14. Mario Kart Wii

    I've set the new Luigi Circuit World Record! Finally!! 1:09.831 I hope it lasts for a while, the record's been broken a fair few times recently. Just a week or two would be nice. Maybe the Japs will take it easy for a while
  15. Mario Kart Wii

    Yeah it is funny: the first time I saw them slipping on their own bananas and throwing them miles from where I was, I had to restart from all the laughing Got my time down to 2:23 now. I want to get into the Top 10, but I don't think this will be good enough.
  16. Mario Kart Wii

    Nice to see you back at MK Have you seen the 12-player MK thread that's up? I was online so I could play in that, but it didn't work. Hopefully I'll get in next week. Check it out: http://www.n-europe.com/forum/showthread.php?t=22023.
  17. Mario Kart Wii

    Nice games Supercube Had my friend Dani show up, as well as David and then Cookyman! He came for one race, beat me and then didn't give me the chance for revenge!
  18. Mario Kart Wii

    The new competiton's quite funny. Donkey and Diddy Kong chase you round the track throwing bananas to put you off, while you try and finish in the quickest time. Their aim is fairly poor, most seem to end up halfway up the hills around the side of the track, especially before the bridge! However, they litter the cave with the damn things. The only weapon we're allowed is the green shell and it's fairly easy to hit them as you get so many. Well, after a few attempts my best is 2:24.x, which I hope to improve later
  19. The Dark Knight Discussion (Spoilers)

    An incredible film; it supassed all my expectations. It's easily the best Batman. The acting was superb, the atmosphere was brilliant and everything just seemed to slot perfectly into place.
  20. Mario Kart Wii

    Luigi, Moo Moo and Shy Guy are horrible online. In Shy Guy Beach if you have a kart/bike which doesn't do well offroad (i.e. in the water) then it's so hard to do well, not to mention those damn crabs. And I agree, N64 Bowser Castle rocks! On another note I'm up to World #2 on Luigi Circuit with a 1'09"945!
  21. Formula 1 2008

    I was at Silverstone for the weekend, had an awesome time. Great to see Hamilton win, he was totally dominant. The best moment was when Hamilton overtook Kovalainen for the lead at the corner I was situated Really good to see the cars live and got some good pictures as well, definitely worth it!
  22. Mario Kart Wii

    I have 37s in the comp so far and I've finally broken into the Continental Top 10 at Luigi Circuit with a 1'10"148
  23. Classic WWF/WWE

    I was a big WWF fan in the attitude era, it was superb to watch between 1997-2001. The atmosphere used to be so much better then compared to now, the crowd would go mental when a big superstar's music hit. My two personal favourites are The Rock and Stone Cold; they really knew how to get a crowd going. WMX7 saw them clash in my favourite PPV of all time. I thought the Invasion storyline worked well, but it signalled the ending of an era. I have not watched WWF seriously since 2002, simply because it is no longer enjoyable to watch. My top 5: The Rock Stone Cold The Undertaker Kurt Angle Triple H.
  24. The Road to Wimbledon- Who Will You Support?

    Came home in the middle of the 3rd set and it looked like it was all over for Murray, but he played some great stuff to win the final 3 sets. Awesome shot to win the 3rd set and the crowd reaction was brilliant. From that moment onwards there was only one winner, Gasquet looked lost and overwhelmed. Great match.
  25. Nintendo64 Appreciation Day

    The N64! My first console and home to very fond memories. So many classics, perhaps I'll get the old thing out again. Quite recently I've been buying some games on eBay I never had and haven't got round to playing them yet. I currently have 19 games. I think most of the famous games have been nominated, so I'll just say my personal favourite is a close call between Ocarina, Mario Kart and Diddy Kong Racing. Of course I loved Mario 64 and Goldeneye as well, hell it's an impossible task to narrow it down to one :p
