  1. Read the title people. My money is on 4 minutes. Which will be 10:07 on my clock. Place yer bets. I will PM the winner with something very nice.
  2. What is the world coming to?

    Holy rusted metal batman. I used to ride those trams all the time for my school commute. I see the great London tradition of general misanthropy while navigating the various channels of public transport solo has crumbled here. Eyes forward. No small-talk. Avoid sitting next to a stranger at all possibilities. Mentally castrate anyone who betrays the above while expressing grave looks. Suddenly I'm surprised I never encountered something like this considering the claustrophobic isolation that haunts those trams.
  3. Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance

    Despite the clusterfuck abomination that is the plot of this series there's a lot of hope for this game. Nomura has fostered a lot of talent in the Osaka team that are working on this not to dissimilar from how he was mentored by Sakaguchi and Kitase in the 90s. Many senior staff members from Jupiter (Chain of Memoires, TWEWY) have also been folded in to this team. These guys previously made Birth by Sleep which is not only the best entry in the Kingdom Hearts series but is easily a contender for one of the best titles on the PSP. The only problem with Birth by Sleep was the lack of a second analogue stick for mapping camera control. Problem solved here. It's also nice to see S-E hasn't swept TWEWY under the rug.
  4. Call of Ktulu being played at Sonisphere completely blew my mind considering they usually avoid playing Cliff's instrumentals. Nowhere near as surreal as Weezer covering Paranoid Android on the Saturday though. Couldn't help but grin like an idiot throughout that. (Justice>Ride>Puppets>Kill>Black Album>meh) And now for something completely different:
  5. Sonic Generations

    The appeal of Chemical Plant Zone is all in it's funky-as soundtrack. Lets hope Sonic Team don't promote this level with another My Chemical Romance song.
  6. Recommend Me An RPG

    It illustrates that Kirby is a massive tool as I see the same absurd shit posted often in neogaf and the videogames board on 4chan. Heaven forbid Kirby ever says such a thing to someone who is actually gay. Oh wait.
  7. Recommend Me An RPG

    The Persona games are tedious as fuck. Tales of Vesperia was fun. Although if you've played Symphonia its essentially more of the same. And the anime clichés aren't so thick in this one... (who am I kidding?)
  8. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3DS

    Looks like they're for real
  9. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3DS

    And Metal Gear Solid 3 looks better than it did on the PS2.
  10. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3DS

    Like I said in the other thread all the images are on Nintendo's site. Holy Crap Holy Crap Holy Crap Holy Crap Holy Crap Holy Crap I guess they were holding back on the announcement like Brawl in 2006.
  11. 3DS Console Discussion

    This is the day that Nintendo kept on giving.
  12. 3DS Console Discussion

    Holy Crap Holy Crap Holy Crap Holy Crap Holy Crap Holy Crap I want it to be real. EDIT: Check the links - this is from the Nintendo site by the way.
  13. MGS: Snake Eater 3D (£9.95 @Zavvi)

    Screens Looks like the 3DS has better graphics than the Wii.
  14. The Music Thread.

    Ride the Lightning got me into Metal as well. Fooking amazing album that one. Well... apart from Escape...
  15. 50 songs from 50 years

    66': God Only Knows 67': A Day In the Life 70': Wild Horses 71': Stairway or Maggot Brain 75': Thunder Road The eighties through to the naughties are far too volatile for me.
  16. Lost: The Final Season

    I thought it was pretty great. The final scene really moved me.
  17. Lost: The Final Season

    Think about the symbolic conflict between Jack and Locke - it's been there since season one. It has to be him. Anyone else would be bullshit on the writer's part.
  18. Can't be bothered to write another argument.
  19. Final Fantasy VIII's story is one of the worst in the series. The game itself is alright but the narrative/characters/pacing/romance are, for most part, rubbish. I wish S-E would take a step backwards during game development every now and then and ask themselves; 'does this plot actually make any goddamn sense?' The fact that most of the context of Final Fantasy XIII was provided within the datalogs is atrocious. It seems like the developers have a hard enough time telling a story - let alone writing a decent one.
  20. Metroid: Other M

    God damn. I was really hoping 'Other M' was simply going to be a placeholder title.
  21. As someone who has not played VI can someone please explain to me why it is the saving grace of the series?
  22. *reads Killer Kirby's post* This is why I hate the internet.
  23. Hey, remember when Seifer sliced Odin in half? That was crazy.
  24. Silent Hill: Shattered Memories

    The other games are generally around 8 hours in length.
