  2. Wiimote batteries

    Got a pack of 15 Hyundai AAs for a quid from Poundland, works a treat.
  3. Lego Star Wars II gone?

    Eurogamer have picked up on this... http://www.eurogamer.net/article.php?article_id=67414
  4. What was you first EVER game?

    I think the first game I played was some Space Invaders clone on the Acorn Electron.
  5. Favourite... Music Album

    Oasis - Definitely Maybe
  6. Games that make you angry.

    The final battle on Final Fantasy VIII was pretty frustrating, from what I remember you had to fight 4 different ridiculously hard bosses in a row. I spent hours levelling all my characters up to stupidly high levels and it didnt make any difference as the enemies level up as you do. I only beat it once.
  7. Best PC game of all time!

    Old: X-Com UFO Enemy Unknown New: Oblivion Online: Unreal Tournament (the original)
  8. Post them Game-Screens

  9. Iwata seems a lot less arrogant than Yamauchi to me and he's brought some fresh ideas to the table, as the DS demonstrates. They still need to work on the "kiddy" image, the advertising, and get a few more third parties on board so there are less software droughts like Gamecube suffered.
  10. Playstation RPGs.

    Doh.. didnt notice, my bad. Grandia came out on the Saturn in Japan in 1997 and it was ported to the PS1 and released in US & Europe in 1999. I used to have Vagrant Story, it was quite a difficult game but rather impressive technically for the PS1, I got stuck on a boss battle fairly early and gave up.
  11. My most recent bargain was Deep Fear, the last game released for the Sega Saturn in europe - £12 from Gamestation. I've seen it go for £30+ on ebay. I bought a Mega Drive II with 1 x 6-button pad and 2x 3-button pads and ten games from a car boot sale for £10 a few years ago, which i was quite chuffed with.
  12. Playstation RPGs.

    You should get Grandia, it is rather excellent, shame they didnt release an English version on the Saturn.
  13. First Wii EU prices for games revealed

    Just noticed Play.com have put up their Wii section, games are listed as £49.99 each, with release dates of 8th December 2006. "These dates are subject to change. Play.com updates product release dates daily". http://www.play.com/Games/Wii/NAVSUB/5-/RegionHome.html
  14. Favourite album ever!

    Hard to pick one album but I've narrowed it down to six. Oasis - Definitely Maybe The Stone Roses - Self-titled Arcade Fire - Funeral The White Stripes - White Blood Cells Brendan Benson - Lapalco Interpol - Turn on the Bright Lights
  15. Post your Fav "Feel good song".

    Wake Up by The Arcade Fire.
  16. Colin McRae Rally 2007 for Wii?

    Given the fact that Codemasters completely ignored the Gamecube (with the minor exception of Second Sight which was developed by Free Radical), this probably wont be coming to Wii unless Nintendo can get their support.
  17. DVD Playback On Revolution

    The lack of out-of-the-box DVD player functionality isnt as important as it was back in 2000 when the PS2 came out, I wont be buying one of these dongles. Pretty much everyone has a DVD player now, especially as you can walk into any supermarket and get a one for 20 odd quid which does Multi-region, Dolby, MP3 CDs, JPEG etc.
  18. Confirmed!!! F.E.A.R on the Xbox360

    They'll probably try and charge 50 quid for it, when the superior PC version is £10-20
  19. Worst Game you've ever played?

    I think the some of the worst games I've ever played are... - Rise Of The Robots - terrible, buggy, overhyped, broken beat-em-up, I feel pain when I play it, it really is that bad. There was a sequel called Rise 2: Resurrection on the PS and Saturn, which is apparantly as bad. - Shaq Fu - Another crap beat-em-up, this time with a Shaquille O'Neal license. - Soul Fighter - Crud Golden Axe clone with some of the worst graphics on the Dreamcast. - Sonic Heroes - Possibly the worst Sonic game I have ever played (although I have not tried Shadow the Hedgehog). Although I havent played it, I belive ET on the Atari 2600 is considered the worst game ever made, which is backed up by the legend that Atari buried 5 million or so copies in the New Mexico desert.
  20. What MP3 player do you have?

    6GB Rio Carbon Pearl
  21. Recent CD collection

    'Tis quite a good album, my favorite tracks are probably "Ladyflash", "Get It Together", "Bottle Rocket" and "Huddle Formation". It only cost me 7 odd quid from HMV and It's the newer 2005 version with 2 bonus tracks and some samples changed round (to get the album released in America they had to remove quite a few samples to avoid copyright infringement). I had heard the original 2004 version beforehand and it sounds quite different.
  22. Recent CD collection

    Last few CD's I've bought... The White Stripes - Self-titled Muse - Origin of Symmetry The Go! Team - Thunder, Lightning, Strike The Arcade Fire - EP Red Hot Chili Peppers - Mothers Milk I will definitely be buying the new Chili Peppers album, Stadium Arcadium in May along with the Raconteurs (Jack White/Brendan Benson) album which is coming out around then as well.
  23. Funny videos, flash games, etc

    I'm the Juggernaut Bitch! (contains much swearing) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6QXUXQ8miHs&search=juggernaut
  24. Best Music of 2005

    My two picks of the year... Arcade Fire - Funeral (best album I've heard in years) Fischerspooner - Odyssey (which sold about 5 copies) In Your Honour was a bit of a disappointment, the acoustic disc started to grate after about 3 or 4 listens, although Best Of You, DOA and Deepest Blues are Black are pretty good.
  25. What bands/artists do you like?

    I mostly listen to... - Oasis - Foo Fighters - The White Stripes - Red Hot Chili Peppers - The Subways - Prodigy - Fischerspooner
