  1. The Snack Appreciation Thread

    Doritoes (Tangy cheese) Peperami (Spicy, the green one) Cherry Coke That's all you need!
  2. Recommend any good Japanese PS2 Games?

    Tales of Destiny, Tales of Destiny 2 and Tales of Rebirth! Yeah I like Tales games
  3. Not the best quality video in the world but I'll be damned if that isn't cool!
  4. Most Overrated Game Series?

    Halo, I've never seen so many repeating corridors since Metroid 1!
  5. Playstation Discussion Archive

    Launch lineup isn't bad! Sega seems to be coming to the rescue (Definately didn't expect Virtua Fighter for launch!) and a decent amount of games at least (Even if most of them are 360 ports) Accessory prices are ridiculous, £35 should not become the standard for a controller! (Damn you Microsoft) I wonder how much the PS1/PS2 memory card adapter costs? Also what about PSN prices? (And while I'm at it, where are the prepaid cards for PSN, I don't wanna use a credit card!) As for the console, meh we knew about it for ages. You've either accepted it or not by now so that point is moot.
  6. Super Paper Mario

    Well that's me sorted for April! I've just gotta wait for it with no more Wii games now (Unless Sonic Wii turns out good that is!)
  7. Wii "Laptop"

    Nice! But playing Wii games on the go would be impossible thanks to the Motion Control. I'd love to see Ben Heckendorf make a Wii handheld though, would be great for the Virtual Console!
  8. Power Consumption?

    The reason why Wii's standby mode takes up so much power is because it's WiFi is still active and is constantly running on Wiiconnect 24. Other devices take up enought juice to keep it "on" while the Wii has to power it's WiFi as well as the 1 watt it takes for itself. BTW wasn't it found out that the PS3 uses up over 340w at it's peak?
  9. Are they in the right coloured holes? Magnetic interference? (Sorry that's all I can think of right now)
  10. YES! This is fantastic news, Tim and Chris are very talented designers and come up with some very unique ideas but they've never been able to admit that practically everyone who made Rareware what it was had left to form Free Radical and Zoonami (aside from the grunt programmers and the music composers of course) Hopefully, Chris and Tim will head off to Free Radical to join their old buddies and some how get back together with Zoonami (They haven't made a single game thus far so maybe they'd be willing to team up again) If somehow that were to happen, then it's possible that the Rareware of old may live once again!
  11. That's odd, well REmake doesn't support 480p so that may be a contributor to the jagginess. I assume that you've already turned the sharpness down on your HDTV (since your other Wii games look fine), I know I did! But then again, REmake never had any Anti Aliasing and always suffered from horrible pixilation anyway. It's just that playing it on a HDTV amplifies the issue even more.
  12. The VC review thread

    I finally got some Vc points and I thought I'd try out some games that I'd never played before so I chose ecco the dolphin since it seemed so different to everything else and IGN gave it a fairly decent review... WHAT A PIECE OF SHIT! The game has a distinct homebrew feeling as soon as you start it up, listening to that generic noise Sega call music, and then it hits you. The collision detection is completly broken, although you wouldn`t want to play it even if the collision detection was good thanks to crap gameplay and level design. One of the worst games I`ve ever played, I feel completly gypped. Oh well, SM64, SMB, GH, SCV4 and Wario`s Woods washed out that bad VC taste in my mouth!
  13. Name: I loved it from the start (Was probably the only person to do so as well ) and I love it just as much now. Controller: I thought the controller would be completely awesome and it turned out to be even better than I thought it would be! Mind you though, it guzzles batteries like a hot knife through butter (Got me some 2500 MAH batteries so that little problem is now sorted!)
  14. Wii Connects to Nintendo VIP

    WTF, NOE doing something good for once. IMPOSSIBLE!!! Ugh, still can't do anything with my stars though since my Wii is a US version, oh well, I'm not interested in crappy PAL releases anyway. Hurry up and put Yoshi's Island DS on the Stars Catalogue Ninty!!!
  15. PAL Virtual Console Games Run In 50 HZ

    The funny thing is, that I actually (Jokingly) said the other day that NOE are so stupid that they'd probably make the VC run in 50Hz. Strange how things work out sometimes... (Huggles his US Wii )
  16. There are no words to describe the utter stupidity of this... Thank God I got a US Wii!
  17. Suggest A Thread

    The PAL version virtual console runs all the games in 50hz!!! http://www.pro-g.co.uk/news/06-12-2006-4221.html Someone might want to make a thread on this since I'm certain that this is gonna be a deal breaker for many people waiting on a PAL Wii (Thank God I got a US one!)
  18. Official Issues and Problems Thread

    Hi, my new HDTV and my Wii component cables arrived yesterday and it looks like sex! (My TV is the Samsung LE32R74BDX) I may post some pics later on if I can be bothered but it works great, no scaling lag (even with Game mode turned off!) and PQ even better than RGB Scart on an SDTV! (Everything looks so full and all the colours are nice and inky ) A word to those looking at the Wii on a HDTV, please for the love of everything that is holy and sacred, PLEASE TURN THE SHARPNESS DOWN! or else the game will look like that pixelated mess you see above. Turning the sharpness down makes it look much better as it smooths out most of the jaggies (I've turned down my sharpness to 30/100 and it still looks sharp, without most of the jaggies)
  19. My Twilight Princess just arrived, but I've got no Wii to play it on yet What about you?
  20. "or just for the future in that you may get games before the PAL versions are released?" Bingo! (Cheaper games too!) Plus there's the extra virtual console games that won't come out over here like Chrono Trigger and the fact that you may not neccessarily get a 60hz mode with PAL games.
  21. Wii Cracked

    This is just using Gamecube homebrew on the Wii. Nothing special.
  22. The Reviews Thread

    I wouldn't trust GS on this one. Wait for the IGN review before passing a judgement.
  23. The Reviews Thread

    http://gstp.ytmnd.com/ That is all I will say about this blasphemy...
  24. But will they be free or will we have to pay for them? I think I know what's gonna happen
  25. Official Issues and Problems Thread

    PAL 60 is 60hz. PAL 60 = 640 x 480 (or 852 x 480 for widescreen) at 60hz. This is the same as NTSC, PAL 50 is higher resolution but only runs at 50hz. Since 50hz is crap with games, there's no point even thinking about it since you'll want to run it in PAL 60 anyway. So that's why we all say it just runs in 480p.
