  1. Manhunt 2

    Great, yet another game off my to get list for the Wii. It's been unplugged for the last 5 months. I'm starting to wonder whether it's worth keeping my Wii, considering Brawl is just about the only game I remotely care about.
  2. Make us laugh!

    I heard a really harsh joke today: Reports are coming in of foot and mouth in Scotland. Police are hoping to find all of Colin Mcrae by the end of the week. I laughed so hard at that. I know I shouldn't of, but I did...
  3. Just got an Xbox 360!

    Well, to be honest, I wouldn't want oblivion right now, not with the GOTY edition just around the corner (which has all the expansions loaded onto it, meaning no pointless downloading from xbox live), and I'm not really that interested in F.E.A.R. full stop, played the demo and didn't particularly like it, but that was back when I had a personal vendetta against FPS games, I've kinda lightened up since then. Hence, the deal I got appealed to me. Also got Overlord with the money I had left over, so I'm quite happy with that. Also, I did post a link somewhere to a set of batteries that were rechargeable through the USB ports on the 360, meaning no need for the play and charge kit. I would also object to the comment that everyone is gonna buy halo 3. I'm not. I haven't played the first two, and I can't find them anywhere for a decent price (particularly considering the PC version of halo 2 seems to require vista, despite the fact that XP is safer and more stable, and doesn't require as much memory). Anyway, as Bluejay said, enjoy the 360. I've only had it about 3 weeks and I'm loving it, well worth the nothing I paid for it (here's to parents with more money than sense )
  4. Just got an Xbox 360!

    It's great, but I actually got a better deal from HMV: An Elite, Blue Dragon new and The Darkness new for £300.
  5. Just got an Xbox 360!

    I tried it with my computer several thousand different ways, couldn't get anything to work, despite following instructions from so many places it was unreasonable. I know £55 is a lot just to hook your 360 up online, but it's worth it. Also note that I tried it with a windows computer, I'm guessing there are significantly fewer instructions in the manual for a mac...
  6. New and Improved N-Europe Xbox 360 Gamertag List

    Just hooked up my 360 online. Oditri | Oditri Exactly the same as my forum name
  7. Name That Game

    The second one's joust, got a demo of it from Xbox live arcade =D
  8. I don't remember precisely, but I know I had a huge gaming session on my SNES about 2 months ago, because I was bored to death of the Wii, and I didn't have the money for a 360 yet. Through that play session I remember playing Yoshi's Island, Mario All-Stars, Kirby's Dream Course, Donkey Kong Country, and Pierre Le Chef (a strange game where you run around trying to catch runaway food...), so it was probably one of those or a game I can't remember, and I'm not sure I can be bothered to dig out my SNES just to check.
  9. Make us laugh!

    The smash bros photo earlier reminded me of this one I took a while ago: My dad also burst out with this song in the middle of dinner: "Red and yellow and pink and green, orange and purple and blue. I've been in a car crash..." Almost made me spit up my food...
  10. Totally new to xbox 360

    I don't plug 'em into my 360, 'cos my PC actually still powers the USB ports on the front of the case even when it's off. I've been using them since the Wii's launch, and they haven't caused me any problems whatsoever so far, which considering how much I could have spent on batteries in that time...I think it was probably the best idea I've ever had. I do, however, know people who have used them in the 360, and they've had no problems either, so I wouldn't worry.
  11. Totally new to xbox 360

    Not when you have these! Seriously, I chuck these in my 360 controller at the start of the day, play for most of the day, plug 'em into my computer at night, they're charged by the next morning.
  12. Maybe it's just me, but I've bought nothing but Nintendo consoles since the SNES (my first Nintendo console), but I'm willing to admit that I'm a little disappointed with Nintendo's efforts so far... *puts on flame-resistant suit* Now, don't get me wrong, I love Nintendo games, but there just aren't any on the Wii. The only Wii games I've actually enjoyed are Zelda (gamecube game) and Sonic (made by Sega). I'm looking forward to Paper Mario, but not enough to rush out and buy it the minute it's released. I'll admit that there are a lot of games on the Wii I'm looking forward to, but the list consists of only one nintendo game, and that's Brawl. After the horror that was Mario Sunshine, I'm reluctant to consider Galaxy too much, and I never got further than the first bosses on the first 2 metroid games, so that's corruption out of the window. So yeah, I'm a little disappointed with the Wii right now. It's not that there aren't enough games out, it's that the majority of them are shit. Sorry, but they are. Most of them wouldn't last 2 seconds on the gamecube. Why? Because 90% of them are based around the controller. There just isn't the level of content there to keep any decent gamer amused for more than 30mins, which when you're trying to compete with epics like Overlord and Blue Dragon won't help. All I'll say is that I've played Overlord for about the same amount of time I played sonic when I got it. In that time, I reckon I'm about halfway through Overlord (given that I've been to 2 out of the 4 areas on the map). In that same amount of time on sonic and the secret rings, I'd finished the story and gotten golds on about 30% of the missions (including every single mission in Sand Oasis). I've not touched any Wii game since finishing Sonic, and I hadn't touched one for about a month prior to it's launch. Sorry, but right now there aren't the level of games I expect on the Wii right now. In the first 7 months of the gamecube's launch, Europe saw the release of Starfox Adventures, Pikmin and Smash Bros Melee. My play times for those are about 20 hours for starfox, 50 for pikmin, and somewhere in excess of 10,000 for melee. I don't know the exact figure for melee, because it only records 9999:59 of game time, and I got to that stage about a year and a half ago. What did the Wii get in those first 7 months? Zelda (gamecube game, grand total about 30 hours anyway), and Sonic (grand total about 30 hours too). Oh, and let's not forget Red Steel, which I desperately tried to like for about 2 hours before consigning it to the bottom of my shelf, never to be touched again. Wow, actually feels kinda cathartic to get that off my chest. That's one of the longest rants I think I've ever had. Meh, still disappointed with my Wii...
  13. Totally new to xbox 360

    I must admit, I'm very new to the 360 myself. I got one last thursday for my birthday. My parents were willing to splash out for an elite, definitely worth the extra little bit of money. As someone said above, HMV have some uncharacteristically good bundles. I was looking at the Bioshock & Blue Dragon bundle form GAME for £330, but when I looked in HMV, they had it with Blue Dragon and The Darkness for £300, so I bought Overlord with the saving, and my bro then phoned up later that day to say he was buying me Bioshock for my Birthday! The elite actually does come with a few other things that the premium doesn't, in as much as it has a ton of arcade demos already on the hard drive. I've only had it 4 days, and I've already used up 2GB in demos and save files, and I've only downloaded 2 demos (Sonic and N3). As far as games are concerned, I could recommend all 3 of the titles, the only exception being Blue Dragon. I love it, but I'd only recommend it if you like JRPGs. P.S. I'm not gonna put up my gamertag until I have it hooked up online properly (had to run an Ethernet cable through the whole upstairs just to download 2 demos). edit: the elite also looks awesome. with my Wii next to it, it's like good and evil side by side...
  14. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Spoilers Topic)

    I've just had an insane thought on the trainer's final smash. What about the 3 elemental hyper beams? You know, Frenzy Plant, Blast Burn and Hydro Cannon. To the best of my knowledge, the three Red & Blue starters are capable of learning them, and they are pretty devastating. Just a thought.
  15. Name That Game

    Yeah, you're right. Just found this: http://uk.cheats.ign.com/objects/006/006188.html Check the box art on the right.
