  1. Metroid Prime 3: Corruption

    Personally my fave is Prime 1, but I thought Echose first 8 - 10 hrs I spent on it was just as great. The dark world bits were not so great and I guess made the game much harder.
  2. Metroid Prime 3: Corruption

    Played another hour today and controls getting much better now. Just got the Hypermode ability. It's true the voice acting, and the other characters in the game ruin it a bit. They seem out of place, and are not well done. Character models are weak. The other hunters also should perhaps not been in it. The Ridley fight was pretty cool just now. I really rated Prime 1 as you can see from my Sig, and Echoes too, but I completed neither, so it will be interesting to see how I do in this.
  3. Metroid Prime 3: Corruption

    I'll stick with the controls although it's harder in that you have to aim even with targeting. What i do like is the fact you can call your ship and save.
  4. Metroid Prime 3: Corruption

    Game finally came today. Played for about couple of hours. It started a bit iffy I think. Didn't really feel like a Metroid game, or Prime game at least. And the controls take a bit getting used to and is far from perfect. I put the control scheme on expert and am finding it a tad sensitive. I wonder whether I should change it back to the default. The rest of the button config seem a bit clumsy. Missiles on D-down is not good. 1 button for accessing maps etc is also not great but then again the lack of buttons means thats the best they could do. The first level was not very good, but it is starting to pick up a bit now.
  5. Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn

    Definitely, easy felt like normal. I will have to use my POR save file to start normal, but i think I want to complete POR again on hard first. Quite near, at the battle with the black knight but got killed by him.
  6. Metroid Prime 3: Corruption

    I Just won this game on Ebay. What can I expect? I'm a massive fan of Prime 1 & 2 although not completed either. Can't wait to play this.
  7. Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn

    That seems to much hassle if you ask me. I hate resetting the game and will only do it if a character dies (with only a few exceptions). I need to complete POR again to use the save file with Normal mode.
  8. Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn

    You have to use your weak characters whenever you can to pick up more experience points. All about stategy. Use 2 or 3 characters to kill an enemy where possible so they all pick up experience points. Give bonus experience to your weak units. If you just use your strong characters to finish off enemies in one blow, your weak units won't level up.
  9. Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn

    Its much longer than POR. I just completed it now on Easy mode. The time reads about 65 hours. This does not include the countless times I've had to reset it. This game is brilliant. If you love POR (which I did) this will be a joy as it's a continuation of that game in every way you can imagine. Time to see if I have unlocked the FMV's. You get a round up of what happens to all the characters at the end. The story concludes very well in the end. You get some neat extras like: Sound room where you can listen to all the music from the game - some are still diabled. Maybe need to play on harder difficulty to unlock them? The music is great. Theater - watch all the great FMV's again. They are really great. Event - You get to watch al the conversations again - by character as well. Records - all the games records.
  10. Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn

    I'm nearing the completion of the game. Whoa the amount of characters you get to choose from is staggering.
  11. Well GAME still has this for release on 1st of May. And it is showing it on Wii's homepage, saying 26 days to go. Should they not remove it from there if it's not coming out then, as its quickly approaching.
  12. Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn

    I'm on Part 4 now. Story staring to pick up again after Part 3. The Greil Mercenaries are so powerful now. Gatrie, Shinon, Soren, Rolf, Mia are all amazingly strong.
  13. is there not an european release date for this yet? Game online has it listed for 1/5/2008. They actually had Fire Emblem's 14/3/2008 date before it was oficially announced. Here's hoping eh
  14. Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn

    i have no problems with the difficulty. then again i'm playing on easy and i'm an expert have played through POR 3 times. you can play with the original characters and level them up. just make sure to share out the experience points. use several characters to kill an enemy. that way you get more points.
  15. Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn

    you can play this before POR as the game fills you in with a lot of the back story. I am playing this through on easy without the save data from the previous game. admittedly you will love the game so much more after playing POR. However it will take you at least 30 hrs just to complete that game. Well worth it though I think. I have just finished Part 1 of 4. Next on to Crimea's story.
  16. Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn

    I have this game and I am absolutely loving it. Just taken a short break to write this then I will jump back in to it. I started playing it about 11:30 pm last night and I have already clocked more than 10 hours worth. This game is so addictive. I loved POR as well on the Cube and it is definitely a massive boost if you played that game first as there is so much reference to the first game. All the while, as such a fan, makes me very happy indeed. The story in this game is building up nicely. If it continues like so, will be great. Unfortunately, I have already seen too much pre-release spoilers and one idiotic review that revealed who [spoiler: highlight] the black night was. Some of the characters that I found more annoying or useless in POR are turning out to be very likeable this time around. I will write more impressions of the game later.

    thanks, for the tip. i will give it another try. i didn't notice any health bar
  18. Zack & Wiki

    I'm stuck on the 1st world on the fishing bit. Why the hell does it not work. Is it the controls? is it me doing it wrong. shouldn't be so difficult!
  19. Zack & Wiki

    This game is fantastic. Screams quality and charm. I'm loving it, can't stop smiling when playing. Quality is up there with the best Nintendo games.
  20. Next Wii game you are getting

    What is the next Wii game that you are getting? Mine is most likely going to be Zack & Wicki on Jan 18th. though I have been toying with the idea of getting Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games for Christmas and been wanting to get Metroid Prime 3 for ages now. Oh I forgot I have ordered Mercury Meltdown Revolution from Tesco for £8!
  21. Next Wii game you are getting

    my Mercury Meltdown finally arrived in the post today from Tesco. Took it's time.
  22. Zack & Wiki

    I wonder if virgin will post mine to me on time
  23. No More Heroes

    Killer 7 was too twisted for my liking. I couldn't really be bothered to play it much and sold it. Will I like this I wonder? Doubt I will get it at launch anyway.
  24. Wii Fit

    I so can't wait for Wii Fit. Sales of the Wii are going to hit the roof. I can see a lot of franchises already on the Wii, might take advantage of the Wii Balance Board for another installment which might otherwise not have happened on the Wii. Rayman Raving Rabids, Super Monkey Ball, Mario Party 9, and Wario Ware as mentioned above. Also expect there to be skiing games, more olympic ties-ins as well. Hell, Sega should consider it for Sonic Riders. Can't wait to play games that involve the Wiimote and nunchuck as well as the board. Steer with the wiimote and nunchuck and balance using the board in a bike racing game.
  25. Red Steel - Some Of My Views

    it's quite hard in some places. keep getting snipered by some git.
