  1. The Darkness

    Anyone gave this a go? I have, freaking love it, Online isn't that bad but the story line and the interaction is incredible... Graphics are top notch
  2. For me it has to be Gears of War, I bought it and I absolutely hated it, so overated it's not even funny, Very Narrow, Chainsaw Killing gets boring and online is utter shite. Graphics are great but I don't see the appeal...
  3. Prison Break Season 3

    Starts Soon Scofield Burrows Mahone It's back, however I'm not actually that excited because I managed to watch 2 seasons of Prison Break in less than two weeks...
  4. Pokemon RPG Wii

    It's probably been mentioned before and ruled out by Nintendo, but wouldn't a Pokemon RPG be awesome, I mean countless pokemon and more area to discover than any FF....Anyone agree?
  5. Pro Evolution 2008

    Konami Unveils Pro Evo 2008 Konami has lifted the lid on the first details for the next Pro Evo game and has promised that it will be "the closest simulation of real football to date." Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 (working title) will be released on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, PS2, PSP and DS later this year and boasts what Konami is calling "a revolution in player artificial intelligence" -- dubbed Teamvision, which enables the opposition to learn your style of player and adapt their tactics accordingly. According to Konami, Teamvision will totally change the way PES fans play the game, because the adaptive AI forces players to constantly rethink their tactics. So, for example, if you prefer to run the ball down the wing and knock in a cross to a tall centre forward like Peter Crouch, your opponent will quickly change their tactics to close down the wide players and mark your hitmen more heavily. Similarly, if your favoured method of defence is to protect the back four with a sweeper -- then the other team will quickly pick up on this and change their attackers to take advantage of your formation. Naturally the effectiveness of an opponent's change in tactics depends on the team they're playing as: strong international and club squads will be able to counter your tactics faster and more effectively than less skilled clubs, although players will still notice the change in their opponents play if they resort to using the same channels of attack. Likewise, powerful teams can also punish lazy tactical play to devastating effect, so if you lose the ball in your half to Robbie Keane there's a good chance he'll score. However, lose out to a less proficient striker and the odds of them converting the shot are less favourable. The improved AI changes the way the game is played almost on every level, forcing players to take a much wider view of the game and real use the full width and breadth of their team. As such the pitch scanner plays a much bigger part in the game because it enables players to pick out openings in the defence (if they're skilled enough, obviously) and thread a ball through to an advancing attacker. Teamvision affects set-plays as well as free play too. Cheap free kicks are a thing of the past because the opposing defence will close down runs faster, which prevents players from passing a ball into the box and tapping a shot in from short range. Naturally there are times when you will scorean easy goal, whether it's from a well-worked passing move or a fizzing direct free kick, but the enchanced AI now means players must think more if they want to consistantly win. Other improvements promised for PES 2008 includes improved greater close control, so there's more scope for skilled dribbling, tricks and neat inter-player passing moves. Setting up a free-kick isn't quick as restrictive either, whether you're defending or attacking. You can change the number of players in the wall if you're defending or, if you're on the attacking, plan runs more intricately and position specific target men for the kicker to aim for. However, the most noticeable improvement PES 2008 will offer over its predecessors (apart from Teamvision of course) is the graphics. Konami promises it will be a true next-gen experience, so there will be proper facial animations, shirt pulling and kits that flow and crease as the players run around. Watermarks from sweat and rain appear as the game continues too, bringing the player that bit closer to the action than ever before. All next-gen versions will feature a fully functional edit mode too -- something that was sorely lacking from last year's 360 version of PES 6 -- so players can create there own team and or edit existing ones. As yet there's no word on which licensed teams will feature or indeed what online modes we can expect. "We have taken a long hard look at what has made the Pro Evolution Soccer series so popular, and where we want to take it next," commented Shingo 'Seabass' Takatsuka, creator of the series and Producer of PES 2008. "With the new Teamvision AI system, we truly believe that we have elevated the game to a new level. The movement of players off the ball, coupled with the total control given to the player, creates the closest simulation of real football to date. We really hope everyone enjoys our evolution. I promise it will be worth the wait." We certainly hope so. _______________________________________________ Adds another game to Father Christmas's list, looks like it's going to be another great game... Please can we have rights to Liverpool next time round?

    Look dynastygal, No One is being horrible to you, no one is trying to make you feel uncomfortable, no one is trying to start arguements. I've noticed this throughout many other threads, that you believe this is whats happening. We are trying to make you feel welcome, and I have said it many a time, 'Welcome To N-E' I'm not taking the high horse, if I was you would know about it It's N-Europe, The Fish has been here longer than myself and you to know how things are done around here. Your Perceptions and Opinions are welcome but if it's to knock How N-E has always been run, then who is a new member to pass judgement, and expect change? Don't expect any miracles because this is how 'N-E Rolls' so to speak, It's like Marmite, you either love it or hate it. Your lucky because in the past we have found general welcome threads being locked, As Moria said, this system has been tried and failed and such threads have been locked faster than you can say. LOLWTFBBQ! Once Again Welcome to Nintendo Europe, make yourself feel at home and participate in the many discussions we have going, but beware, you will be addicted

    No One is taking the high horse attitude, it's just the way things are done around here. As I said when I was new I was posting myself a welcome thread, making other pointless threads etc etc...And I got flamed, so I'm just Passing on experiences. Just giving another member some guidance isn't taking the high horse attitude.
