  1. Prince of Persia

  2. Killzone 2

    Hoooly testicle tuesday! I can't believe how amazing that looks. I think I'm gonna get it. Only complaint I've heard about it so far are controls, are these really an issue?
  3. Xbox 360 Console Discussion

    Fable 2 was possibly my favourite game of 2008.
  4. PlayStation 3 Console Discussion

    Yeah, I pick up the Blu Ray now unless it's an old DVD that could for cheap. In HMV 28 days later and 28 weeks later on Blu Ray together were £30. The boxset for both on DVD were £5. Obvious choice really. HMV are crap for Blu Rays though. Most are like £25. I just wonder how anyone actually buys these things.
  5. Totally agree mate. I never went on the site, but I loved 1Up Yours and the 1Up Show. It was never quite the same after Luke Smith, and Mark McDonald left and a few others had also left, but it was still great. Apparently Shane was already leaving. I'm really gonna miss those shows. I'm just glad GiantBomb was formed, cos I felt like this about Gamespot this time last year when Gerstmann got the sack.
  6. Well apparently UGO has basically 'saved' 1UP from just going under. This was the only option.
  7. Yeah pretty gutted about all this used to get 1up Yours and the 1up Show every week for about 2 years now. That was one thing that got me back into games. Hope we hear from them again soon.
  8. Achievements/Trophy Discussion

    Yeah I agree. I can compare my achievements with my friends in each game as well on the Xbox. :s Harder achievements are generally higher points, so I don't even understand how the gold/silver trophies make any difference.
  9. So 2008 is over! What games did you finish?

    I should really start trying to finish a few other games as well. I want to finish: Gears of War 2 (but only just got that so :p) Banjo Kazooie N&B Mass Effect Burnout Paradise GTA4 NBA Street Homecourt Super Paper Mario Boom Blox deBlob Zelda PH Prince of Persia Heavenly Sword Resistance So a fair few compared to how many I normally get done in a year. Best get cracking!
  10. Samba De Amigo

    I've practiced a while with it and it's starting to come to me now. I played on medium difficulty and got perfect 100% so the controls can't be that terrible. The only ones I find at all difficult to get are the top ones as sometimes it doesn't recognise I'm tilting up quick enough. I've never had a problem with the middle ones at all.
  11. So 2008 is over! What games did you finish?

    Halo 3 Fable 2 Call of Duty 4 PGR4 DiRT Ratchet and Clank PS3 Uncharted LittleBigPlanet The list so far for this year is: Left4Dead :p
  12. Finally got a Wii

    Make sure to get Boom Blox and also World of Goo on WiiWare!
  13. Spielberg's Boom Blox

    Got the Wii down for everyone to play this Christmas and everyone loves this game. Annoys me that it didn't sell more as it's really good. I really need to play it a bit more.
  14. Wii n00b asks n00bish questions

    Make sure you buy Super Mario Galaxy, Boom Blox, and World of Goo (WiiWare). All excellent games.
  15. PlayStation 3 Console Discussion

    Like a lot of people, the Wii for me is more of a toy than a games console if that makes sense. I've only really played Mario Galaxy, and most of my experience with the console has been stuff like Boom Blox, Wii Sports, and the like. But I am glad the Wii is what it is, cos it's getting people into games. I'm no longer an ub3r nerd with my Gamecube playing Zelda, and Pikmin. People are getting into gaming. My aunt got my cousin a Wii today, and they were amazed by it. By the controller, and all that jazz, but also the online (!!!!). I just wanted to shout 'NO IT'S TURD!!!!!' and point out how much better the Xbox online is and how cool this stuff could be if they only knew. But hopefully one day they will know, and these family games will just be the beginning. Hopefully there will be more games like Boom Blox and Buzz, and a few less like Carnival Games and the like, and people will better discover why it is that we like what we like.
  16. Xbox 360 Console Discussion

    I've been made to wait until today but been playing some Left4Dead and Gears 2. Both effing amazing.
  17. PlayStation 3 Console Discussion

    I played Buzz for the first time today and it's awesome! I had no interest in these quiz games before but they do seem pretty decent.
  18. Top 3 Gaming Moments of 2008

    God quite a few really. 1. Getting my girlfriend an Xbox 360 for christmas, cos she's so excited for it :-) 2. Little Big Planet and the level editor. As soon as you start on that level you just can't stop! 3. The hardest one really, cos there is quite a few, but Fable II has to go in here. Loved the entire game. Played it for around 6 hours the day I got it, which is the first time I've done that with a game in ages. Special mention has to go to Banjo Nuts and Bolts and vehicle creator, World of Goo (not played enough yet, but loving it so far), Boom Blox (Can't wait to get this out over christmas), and Price of Persia (again, only just started but really enjoying it so far). Left 4 Dead would no doubt make this list as I absolutely loved the demo, and I'm getting it christmas eve :-) An excellent year of games in my opinion. I just wish i had chance to play those games I still haven't got round to finishing. Still need to play Zelda PH, Okami, GTA4, Half Life 2, and god knows how many others. it's never ending.
  19. LittleBigPlanet Thread

    I played a Dead Space level too. I think it's the only one I've seen that was rated 5 stars. Was seriously cool. The amount of time taken to make that must be epic.
  20. Prince of Persia

    I'm really enjoying it so far. I love the fact that if I mess something up I can try again. Why would I want to redo a whole load of it every time I mess up? I like the combat system, that looks really good. And I really wish there were more games with this graphical style, it really is one of my favourites. It's good so far, and the lack of major difficulty isn't bothering me in the slightest. I found Assassins Creed to be tedious beyond belief, and everything that was crap in that game is not in this one so far.
  21. LittleBigPlanet Thread

    They might have done, but it might just be that levels that are actually cool are in the cool levels page now. I will be publishing my level at some point this week. I've got no time all week, with work for 3 days, and being with my girlfriend, and I've got World of Goo and Prince of Persia to play at some point. It's still too short, but I don't know what else to do in it. I'm gonna add another little bit in there then stick my score board in there, and publish it.
  22. LittleBigPlanet Thread

    Yeah man, those collector levels are pretty sodding irritating. I'll just add a little bit more to my level probably on Monday, then I'm gonna make a copy and put up a test for some people to try. If you all think it's crap then I'm gonna stop trying :p I think it's not too bad for a first try though. Not a patch on a lot of the levels out there. Seems to be a lot easier to find the decent stuff now on the menu. A lot of 4 star levels on that 'Cool Level's' page. Before there was a load of crap on there.
  23. Prince of Persia

    Just got this today. Enjoying it so far. Weird though, I set a destination on the map thing then it showed me where to go yet the ground just wasn't there. I tried jumping but I just fell to be saved. I thought I was being retarded and just not getting it, but I quit, reloaded the save and the ground was there this time and I could just run along where I was supposed to go. :s This happened to anyone else? I'm playing the PS3 version.
  24. LittleBigPlanet Thread

    I'm running out of ideas for my level lol. It's a bit short, but I might just decorate it a little and then publish it and let people give suggestions on how I could improve it.
  25. LittleBigPlanet Thread

    Yeah there is that, but mostly just little things I wanted to do but couldn't figure out how. I think with more practice I'll get better.
