  1. Battlefield Bad Company 2

    I know what you mean about the first BC, also it was too 'floaty'; wayyy to much gun sway haha.
  2. Sonic the Hedgehog 4 (XBLA, PSN, WiiWare)

    BAM perfect answer.
  3. Rate the last game you played

    Aliens vs Predator Bit crappy, I liked it at first, such as the colony stage with the marine but it just went downhill pretty quick. Boring level design, awkward controls and meh graphics left me feeling rather underwhelmed. I actually found the marine campaign to be the weakest! As a fan of the films you can look past it's many faults but I doubt non-fans would get anything out of this. 6/10
  4. Sonic the Hedgehog 4 (XBLA, PSN, WiiWare)

    As a continuation of the original series surely they could be a bit more adventuerous with the level design. Maybe include Tails and Knuckles? I think they're just playing it a bit too safe, looks too much like Sonic 1 damnit!
  5. Sonic the Hedgehog 4 (XBLA, PSN, WiiWare)

    If anything it looks like a sort of cel shaded reboot of the original.
  6. cadbury's mini eggs

    They've certainly shrunk I can tell you that much. Maybe Kraft can bulk them up a bit.
  7. Battlefield Bad Company 2

    Which one is the AT? Do you carry it or is it one of the stationary ones?
  8. Aliens vs. Predator

    I'm playing through the marine campaign and it was great fun at the beginning, atmospheric and well paced but now i'm outside with the temples and it kinda sucks.
  9. Rate the last film you saw

    But.. but at least it has Ripley (and Ron frikkin Pearlman for that matter!) AVP has... an ageing Lance Henrikson. Without her I would totally agree with you. I know it's not a great film but on frequent occasions I am defending it. It's Jean Puet-Jenuet, a great French visonary and his first Hollywood outing which to be fair, considering 20th Fox are very controlling (it is their cash baby after all) he did a brilliant job in the direction front. OK the film looked incredibly horrid in places (the newborn and alien designs were boring and uninspired) but the overall feel was pleasing to the eyes, the film had a nice golden warmth to it (ie everything looked yellow, like in Amelie) The characters weren't that great but again... Ripley, she's like an old friend that stays with you when you move on to a new school. She's embodied Ripley's clone character with alot of tongue-in-cheek and great one liners. AVP was just a cold, lifeless, by-the-numbers fair. No blood or guts either! EDIT: I should give some credit for Joss Whedon too, he didn't do a bad job in bringing a seemingly closed franchise back to life.
  10. Final Fantasy XIII

    Agreed! It was soo magical *weeps*
  11. What's good and sub-£10 for 360?

    Yeah I meant online mainly. Amazon have it for about £15
  12. What's good and sub-£10 for 360?

    Too Human ....only joking. Here are some crackers under a tenner GRAW 2 Halo 3 Saints Row 2 PGR4 Prince of Persia Dead Space And around a tenner to £15: GoW 2 Batman Arkham Asylum Bioshock Fallout 3 Modern Warfare (if you're lucky)
  13. Eurogamer gave Lost in Nightmares a 9. I'm glad it's a return to Resi of old.
  14. Aliens vs. Predator

    Well you've certainly seen something in the game i'm missing, I wish I could share your level of enthusiasm.
  15. Rate the last game you played

    Quick question, is lost in nightmares fairly long? I'm only worried because it's only 400 points! I'm sure at that price it'll be worth it anyway.
  16. Sonic the Hedgehog 4 (XBLA, PSN, WiiWare)

    Aww no I liked Mushroom Hill music, it was slower sure but it was quirky and different. Perfectly fit the strange, alien like atmosphere of the zone. I fear that the music will be closer to that of 1 & 2, as much as I love it I thought 3 & Knuckles was a step up.
  17. Hi. I'm new.

    Well hi there! You couldn't have picked a better forum my good sir. Welcome.
  18. Sonic the Hedgehog 4 (XBLA, PSN, WiiWare)

    It's being developed by Dimps (the dudes that did Sonic Advance and Rush series) instead of Sonic Team. Good or bad news I don't know cos i've never played them.
  19. Sonic the Hedgehog 4 (XBLA, PSN, WiiWare)

    From that video it looks a little unoriginal, 'Splash Hill', 'Casino Street', pull your thumb out Sonic Team it's like you're on auto-pilot!
  20. Perfect Dark XBLA

    What if it turned out to be 1600? You never know, the amount of time and polish they're (supposedly) putting into it and the fact it's Rare, M$ might try and push a more 'premium' price! If that is the case, which i'm sure it won't be, then all hell will break loose.
  21. Battlefield Bad Company 2

    Looks like the game is going the same route as Mass Effect 2 with its DLC, as in there will be a code with every 'new' copy of the game that gives you access to a tenner's worth of DLC that will be available straight away. Source - Eurogamer
  22. Mass Effect 2

    I do miss the Mako a bit, after all, planet scanning got tedious pretty quick.
  23. Perfect Dark XBLA

    I'm guessing 1200? No more, no less.
  24. New Trailers

    Yeah it is actually a pretty good film, I would put that down more to Colin Firth's brilliant performance than Ford's direction, which is a little too Mendes-y.
  25. Rate the last film you saw

    I hope so because that's all the first film is; a big mediocre set up to a presumably more interesting sequel.
