  1. I think I have quite a unique standpoint for my comments that this game is not much of a detachment from the first title because I literally finished the first one and started the new one in the same day. It's simply the feeling I got, that I was continuing the same (fantastic) game with a few minor control adjustments and a rapidly improving plot.


    Brad from Giant Bomb did the same as you and he said that there was a big difference between the 2. He said you can really tell how much the mechanics of the game have improved. I especially think the cover, stealth, and general shooting has improved greatly. I never enjoyed shooting in Uncharted, and sighed every time some came up, but in Uncharted 2 I've actually found myself really enjoying the game.

    I think Uncharted was good, but I'm 54% of the way through Uncharted 2 and I think it's excellent. I think the adjustments to the mechanics are what make it so good compared to the last game as well.

  2. Just had my first attempt at online. I see the matchmaking is as good as ever. 1st game said the server timed out, but 2nd game I noticed that I was level 1 and everyone else was 40+, some as high as level 62. Needles to say I got shot within 4 seconds, and then got killed about 8 times without even seeing anyone. I hated it.


    I'm not good at these games, I'll admit that, and was never that good at Call of Duty 4, but I rarely felt like I never wanted to play again, as I kinda do with this now.

  3. I don't want to tempt fate, but my 2 year old PS3 has had no problems at all. It has the occasional crash or freeze, but I think thats more a software problem.


    Yeah same here, my console has froze a few times but not had any hardware problems at all. Still, I said the same about my Xbox when everyone was saying theirs was breaking and a week later mine packed in. So I'll probably be back in a week...

  4. 59p now and the BEST footy game on the App store. Brilliant title.


    Anyone been getting the free hand-me-outs from Apple this week? (The 12 days of Christmas app.)

    Yesterday was awesome, free Trivial Pursuit app - which is great and kept our family quizically engaged during a motorway backlog of 1 hour.


    Today was a free JLS movie though. Shame, it was good up until that point.


    My thoughts exactly. Trivial Pursuit app was loads better than I expected. I thought the iTunes thing would be crap as most free things tend to be but it's actually pretty decent.

    I hate JLS but it's at least something than some people would want.

  5. Anyone got any idea why my Belkin N router is dropping the internet connection? It's only happening every couple of days but it disconnects and then I'll restart the router and it still doesn't reconnect. It takes ages and about 6 restarts before it just randomly starts working again.


    Any ideas?

  6. Hi there:geek:


    That Guy, the exact same thing has happened to me. Ever since last Friday I haven't been able to download any podcasts from 1UP, and a few days after that I wasn't able to access the site at all.


    I an also on Orange, and tried everything you mentioned too but nothing works. One thing that could be causing it is that 1UP's DNS records were updated after the server were restarted, but Orange still have the old DNS details in their server cache.


    It's been more than a week now and nothing has changed, so I guess the best thing to do is for us to contact Orange with details of the website.


    Well that's some good news then! I emailed them yesterday saying I couldn't access the site so hopefully something will get sorted soon.

  7. I've been able to access everything perfectly for ages so I don't understand what's happened here. None of the Belkin hidden things will appear for me. On a Belkin N router.

    I've tried Laptop/iPhone as well as trying it on Safari and Chrome. Restarting the router hasn't helped. Is it possible Orange could block a site? I've changed the DNS setting to Open DNS which made no difference. It did before when something happened at Orange and certain sites didn't load. No luck here though. I've got no issues with any other sites.


    This is doing my head in! How can one website out of god knows how many stop working?

  8. Ok so weirdly I can't access 1UP when i go to look at it when connected to my Belkin router.

    On the weekend the latest 1UP podcast came out and it wouldn't download so checked their forum and it was a server thing. They said it was back up but still didn't work for me. Tonight it's still not working so I try to check the forum again and it wont work. I can't access the whole website.

    My girlfriend checked from her network and it worked fine.


    So I check my phone on wifi. Wont work. So I disconnect wifi and connect on 3G and it loads straight away.

    I tried to restart my router and that hasn't fixed it at all. Anyone got any ideas of whats causing this? I wouldn't mind not accessing the website cos I don't often look at it but I always listen to the podcast and I can't get it.

  9. No I felt the same way, and stopped playing after the Tornado boss.


    I didn't even really like the presentation, there were times when I found it difficult to make stuff out, I mean you knew what it was, but there was no definition.


    It just got old for me REALLY quickly.


    I agree really. I thought it was amazing for the 1st level. But then the 2nd level was the same. I like it enough not to sell it though.

  10. Sat Navs are for wimps.


    Sat Navs are for real men:santa:


    I shall be getting:


    24 Season 7 (hopefully on Blu Ray if I can convince parents :grin:)

    Modern Warfare 2 360

    L4D2 360

    Ratchet and Clank on PS3

    Uncharted 2 PS3


    And then a couple of films from random family members :) I'm quite looking forward to Christmas now.

  11. Finished Quest for Booty today :) I started it in August when I got it and only played the first 15 minutes. Played the rest today and quite enjoyed it. I was planning on waiting until next year to get this one, cos I plan on playing Left 4 Dead 2 and Uncharted 2 at Christmas and I'm already busy enough with Forza 3. Might have to wait until Ratchet is a bit cheaper.

  12. I think this is a far better game than Forza 2. The way it presents each race is far better, in that you can use you're current car, or see new tracks or use a new car. That was my biggest problem with Forza 2, and the biggest improvement in Forza 3.
