  1. EA Sports: Grand Slam Tennis!

    Where does he say that?
  2. EA Sports: Grand Slam Tennis!

    Hopefully in the Virtua Tennis thread. Using the Grand Slam tennis thread to discuss Virtua Tennis is getting confusing!

  4. EA Sports: Grand Slam Tennis!

    I'm veering much more towards Virtua Tennis. With Virtua Tennis, you know you're getting a fabulous tennis game that's really great fun to play, whereas Grand Slam tennis is a bit of an unknown quanity. I might pick both up if Grand Slam gets good reviews. Nice to have options though.
  5. Virtua Tennis 2009

    Brilliant. I've been waiting for Virtua Tennis for the Wii, pretty much ever since the Wii and motion controller were announced. The IGN previews suggest that the Wii version will lack nothing that the other versions have (except HD obviously). So we'll get online matches and all the other stuff. I found a kind of making of video here: Also it supports the MotionPlus add-on. Virtua Tennis (1 & 2) were amongst my favourite games on the Dreamcast, and I've never played Virtua Tennis 3 since I don't own those consoles. So I'm really looking forward to this.
  6. SEGA Superstars Tennis

    ... I expect it to be excellent. It can't go far wrong, being based on Virtua Tennis.
  7. Virtual Console - All you need to know

    Ooh, Phantasy Star II, cool. Phantasy Star IV is awesome, so I'm glad they've finally started adding the PS games to the VC. (The first one was on the Master System.)
  8. SEGA Superstars Tennis

    Haha, there's a House of the Dead court in the trailer! Looks fantastic. I'm a bit miffed that there's no online mode for the Wii version, but I don't really mind because I don't play online games anyway. Last one I played was Dreamcast Chu Chu Rocket (which would work brilliantly with the wiimote, I think).
  9. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Spoilers Topic)

    I don't really appreciate (or even fully understand) this sort of statement. --- from http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/gay (Only quoting adjective definitions, because that's how you're using it.) If you mean meanings 1-3, then yes, certainly; that's the whole point. If you mean, as I expect, meanings 5/6, then it has nothing to do with that. I am fully aware that everyone has different opinions, based on their experiences. For me the music envokes lots of happy childhood memories of having a great deal of fun. Clearly it doesn't for you, perhaps you never played the game, but I'm bewildered as to why you'd describe it as homosexual. For example, I've never played a Kirby game. When I look at it I just see a ludicrous pink blob with a too-happy face. However, I wouldn't describe it as "gay", because I know other people with different experiences have really enjoyed it. Indeed, you appear to have gone so far as to base your username on it. That's fine, of course; it has as little to do with homosexuality as the Sonic music.
  10. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Spoilers Topic)

    Haha, that's awesome! This music would suit it better though: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Wf-7BCI7pE
  11. NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams

    This is fantastic. I just got Rocket NiGHTS. I've only played Will's stroy so far, looking forward to the other. Anyone tried online play yet? At the moment i'm loving the offline game.
  12. SEGA Superstars Tennis

    What are you talking about? They did Virtua Tennis 3 and Virtua Tennis World Tour (PSP). (See the web site you linked to!) Hitmaker (previously AM3) did VT1 and VT2.
  13. NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams

    Wiimote + Nunchuck is much better.
  14. NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams

    I got NiGHTS, Ghost Squad and Zack & Wiki today. Played them all a little bit. NiGHTS is as magnificent as I'd hoped. It has the most enthralling atmosphere and is immensely fun while flying. Ghost Squad is just great to pick up and blast stuff for a few minutes. It's got me excited about the House of the Dead release. Zack and Wiki is okish. Seems a bit tedious: being stopped and told how to do obvious stuff all the time, with banal dialogue, instead of just getting on with playing it. I expect it will improve as I get further though. Anyway, I'm enjoying NiGHTS most at the moment.
  15. SEGA Superstars Tennis

    GAME have a boxart up. Dunno if it's the real final one though. http://www.game.co.uk/Wii/Sport/Tennis/~r333470/Sega-Superstar-Tennis/
