  1. My PC is constantly crashing, like more than twice daily, and the windows error reporting says that it's to do with hardware. Trouble is I can't figure out what the problem is.

     

    I've run the Microsoft program that checks the RAM (256mb) and it says that there is no problem with it. Could it be I don't have enough RAM? I wouldn't have thought it was that since my PC sometimes just restarts itself, and it comes up serious error afterwards.

     

    My fan is working properly but do you think that my computer could be overheating? How can I check it?

     

    The last thing I can think of is it being the hard drive, but I'm not sure how it could be that. I've formatted (only quick format) before and still the same problem. It probably crashes the most when I'm using Internet Explorer but it's not always that.

     

    Anyone got any ideas? I'm thinking of buying more RAM but not if I'm gonna have to buy a new computer. :hmm:

    Those Screens come up when i send an error report.


  2. I hope the quantity of Wii sports titles doens't scare off developpers from pursuing that space for a dedicated title.

    There is no doubt when you add more games you must compromise on depth and quality.

     

    Wii sports will be fun but it's a bit of a proof-of-concept game, it's a bundle of mini games and they're not amazing.

    It wont satisfy someone who wants a simulator.

     

    For example I'd really like a proper Tennis game for Wii.

    Might be shooting themselves in the foot on this one.

     

    I can see where you're coming from. They could have made big individual titles, and maybe that would have been better because then that would have been an extra 4-5 titles for the Wii.


  3. I have 2 really big fears. 1st one is public speaking. I just can't deal with it. I mean if someone asked me to be best man at a wedding i wouldn't be able to cus i'd have to give a speech, and i'd be absolutley terrified. Annoying.

     

    2nd is spiders. It's weird because i know they can't possibly hurt me, so why is it i can't be in a room that might have a spider in it. Can't leave my window open at night incase spiders crawl in and eat me alive.

     

    Also the thought of being blind. Imagine that, never being able to see anyone again. You'd never be able to look on the internet again, or play on a game ever again. I think i'd kill myself if i ever went blind. Its a horrible thought.

     

    I also don't like wasps and the idea of being burried alive, although i wouldn't exactly say i have a phobia of either one.


  4. Those video are AWESOME they look much better than Xbox 360/PS3 version. This is an exclusive which makes even better coz it'll only be available on Wii :yay:

     

     

    I've just sat and watched that video and I have to say its looking FAR better than the other Sonic. I was actually going to buy an Xbox just for the new Sonic but sod that. I'm not gonna say this will definitely be great but it looks to have sorted the problems of other 3d sonics such as being boring run fast and hope the camera doesn't balls you up levels, and all that other tedious Knuckles/Tails stuff. This is looking good.


  5. Might aswell post for about the 9th time in this thread with my ever changing collection. Finally stopped buying and selling games though so apart from adding 2-3 now this is final.

     

    Zelda: TWW

    Metroid Prime

    Resident Evil

    Splinter Cell PT

    Billy hatcher

    Pikmin

    Luigis Mansion

    Smash Bros. Melee

    Viewtiful Joe

    Battalion Wars

     

    No doubt I'll rebuy Pikmin 2 and Monkey Ball soon enough.


  6. Yeah I'm gonna wait until it's out. There's nothing better than getting your brand spanking new shiny console home and sticking in your first game as your first experience with it.

     

    I remember playing Super Monkey Ball like it was yesterday... *stares into the distance in day dream*


  7. I like the name now. It's much better than Revolution. I mean how many people were calling it the Rev/Revo? I like the name and it's gotten the console a lot of attention. And if anyone is actually being immature enough to to make jokes about 'wee' anymore, then they clearly can't make jokes about Nintendo being 'for kids'.


  8. I've seen a massive video of this running. Looks alot better than the GameCube versions.

     

    It seemed like the person playing was struggling with the controls, but the vid wasn't actually showing the person while they were playing.............so they could just suck at the game.

     

    The game looks very crisp and clean running at 480p like most of the Wii games.

     

    Yeah, I'm guessing all/most games will run in widescreen and 480p even in europe this time, has anything been said about this?


  9. :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

    I've just...completed it.

    Oh my word.

    IT CAN'T END LIKE THAT!!! There's no way there won't be a Shenmue III...theres no way!...Its not possible. I just can't see how it would be made...all that building up and then the ending feels like its just the beginning. It has to happen. You must fight Lan Di.

     

    But my oh my, no game has ever left such an impact on me personally, and my life in general. I don't think I've ever been so emotionally connected to a video game.

     

    I felt the same. Amazing wasn't it? It's a matter of whether Sega want to continue the series. More games are planned, they just need to actually be made.


  10. I think you're talking about one of the first missions

     

    where you have to escape from enemy territory with a light recon.

     

    The controls are indeed quite annoying there, but I almost completed it and didn't encounter any similar problems so far. The tanks feel very natural to control.

     

    Great, hopefully i can motivate myself to do the level and carry on enjoying the game.


  11. I think Spurs fans have more reason to hate Arsenal due to the simple fact the gunners moved from Woolwich in south east London to North London right down the road from Tottenham. The Arse have taken over their patch.

     

    It's about time spurs done a bit better and i for one want them to finish 4th to rub Arsene's face in it when he loses to Barcelona in the champs final.

     

    Yes i dont like Arsenal.

     

    Good man :awesome: To be honest if Arsenal win the champions league they should be in it next year. But it shouldn't be at the expense of 4th placed team. I'm not just saying this because I support Spurs because I felt the same last year with Everton.


  12. Nah it doesn't matter.Grandia 2,what a game :D

     

    I know I was loving it, but then got stuck on a boss battle cus my characters weren't a high enough level and I haven't gotten round to improving them yet. I hope i get back into it soon.


  13. I think you just need to work on your controlling skills to be quite honest.

    And don't worry about the controls, they soon start to make sence with your brain :P

     

    Yeah, probably. The main control layout is actually quite good once you get it into your head. Could just be this one vehicle, just feels way to light. The camera thing annoyed me most though. Spose I'll have to get practising. :D


  14. That can happen because they are so much alike. It happened to me with Zelda Majora's Mask back in 2000. I absolutely loved Ocarina of Time in 98 and I couldn't wait for Majora's Mask but than I don't know why, it didn't make me see the fireworks and I put it down before completing it. I only picked it up like 3 or 4 months later.

    Not to say MM is a bad game, I love it today, but it was too much like OoT, it feels like overkill in a new game.

     

     

    I don't think that was it tbh. I think it was the light/dark world thing that i didn't like, because i never finished metroid prime and so the gameplay was still pretty fresh to me. Might give it ago again if i ever get round to completing the first.


  15. I just recently got this game. I really like it but the controls are annoying. I'm mostly finding locking on enemies difficult, but not too much of a problem. My one major gripe though is controlling vehicles. Its so loose and it annoys me when the camera decides to turn and you're not facing that way. I'm finding mission 4 difficult simply because of this.

     

    Anyone else find that? Did it get easier?


  16. Sonic Heroes, £15 I will never get back. I cant think of a single aspect of that game I like. Then again Ive never really liked any Sonic game.

    Oh and many will disagree here, but any Splinter Cell game. I cant tell the difference between them when my mates play them. Just so damn boring. I will never play one again.

     

    Oh God, Sonic Heroes, what a loathable game that was. I also hated Starfox Adventures.


  17. I don't think people are necessarily scared of Apple Macs, just that they cannot be arsed switching all their shit over to a different computer.

     

    Granted, if my Windows PC were to fuck up an awful lot, I'd endeavour to get a Mac. But it doesn't, so I don't.

     

     

    Mine did and i eventually punched it until it broke. I'm now buying a mac. Trouble for me is, incompatability with word files and whatever, and i wont be able to chat on msn with friends.
