  1. We've had a 'first dance' music poll on here before - i think the winner was the music from the Wii shopping channel. Mate of mine got a friend to play Jeff Buckley's 'Hallelujah' on guitar whilst he signed the register - no singing, just an acoustic, which sounded great in a church. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HKnxmkOAj88&feature=kp Um...so yeah, my friends mate is my recommendation. I've just realised I'm not much help. i'll leave now.
  2. Did you like Sea Change? If so, I'm surprised you didn't take to this. Having said that, its first few songs are strong, then the album looses focus.
  3. Was surprised this was £5.49, was expecting £8-10. Purchased a Vita last October just for this game. Downloaded last night, and pulled out the Vita on the train this morning. 'Lets be having you' I thought to myself. Got my arse handed back to me. Missed my stop, too.
  4. Tetris Tennis Batman James Bond 007 Um...
  5. The only gaming we did today was of the board game variety. Scotland Yard got dusted off, and 5 cousins successfully hunted down my brother.
  6. Super Monkey Ball, GameCube Or are we talking PC only?
  7. Alex W posted this in a different thread: http://www.rosecoloredgaming.com/
  8. All you need now is four sticks to beat each other with. Bought Mario 3D as a download. Figured I'm never going to trade it in, so lets burn some drive space.
  9. I thought it was a Stephen King thread. damn...
  10. Skyrim, fine with the normal, or have to go legendary? ...assume that I will play it.
  11. I've recently decided to make a concerted effort playing some of my pile of shame. At the moment, I'm playing Shenmue 2. I want to hurry along, but the game is having none of it.
  12. I remember struggling on the last boss. Took a concerted effort to crack it. Got there after weeks of practice, but the experience has stopped me from ever even unwrapping the sequel. Biggest failure? Being shit at Typing of the Dead, despite using a keyboard every single day for the last 30 years. edit: wait, forget the above. My biggest failure was using the AC from my SNES in an Atari Jaguar by mistake (which I'd borrowed off a friend to play Tempest 2000), only to hear a 'pop' sound, and see a puff of smoke coming out of a joystick port. Needless to say I phoned my friend up straight away to tell him. 'Sorry mate, I've blown up your Jaguar'.
  13. I can't imagine Typing of the Dead with a controller, either. Same problem with the audio cutting out. Its not enough to ruin it (for anyone thinking of buying) but its worth noting, seeing as we've no idea if the team can patch.
  14. Came here to double-check that Typing of the Dead was new to Steam, and that I wasn't loosing my mind. Sanity confirmed. Ta. Guess I'd better go buy it now. Just as well, as I've given away both my Dreamcast keyboards. (can't believe i owned two Dreamcast keyboards...)
  15. Yes, really don't see why they're cutting costs if they're charging a premium. I'm worried about mine. Got it sent to my uncles place (in America, natch) so I won't know till Christmas.
  16. £20 eh? Practically giving it away. For free
  17. Super Mario Galaxy Geometry Wars Animal Crossing New Leaf Super Mario 3D Land Super Hexagon Bayonetta Portal Hotline Miami Jeanne d'Arc FTL 1 Super Mario Galaxy For me, this is the standout game of this generation (which is slightly shocking, as the N64 version might top it). Its got an ADHD attitude to gameplay, constantly throwing new styles at you, and frankly, its a godsend, given how quickly i get bored these days. Its got that Nintendo touch, that bit of magic. Its sequel is on my shelf, as yet unplayed (the shame) 2 Geometry Wars Its last achievement (score a million points without dying) took me four years to crack. It was right on the limit of my ability. Rarely do I switch on the 360 without giving this a go, just to see if I get that perfect life. This has lasted a long, long time, and i'm showing no sign of getting bored of it. 3 Animal Crossing New Leaf My current crux. There's a hint of landscaping, some feng shui, and the opportunity to be creative. I ran out of things to do on the Gamecube version, and this is basically that game, but with more space to create. I knew the game had me when I spent 30 minutes creating custom wallpaper for my music room. 4 Super Mario 3D Land Played it through to the end, with a big smile on my face. A more accomplished player would scoff at its low difficulty, but luckily i'm shit, so I had a great time. 5 Super Hexagon Conversely, i can't do the 3rd (hardest) level of this. But i keep trying, for some reason. 6 Bayonetta Got to the end of game boss, and can't beat her. Keep meaning to go back. I honestly didn't think Ninja Gaiden Black would be topped, but this does it. The game is now hard-wired into my fingers, stuff happening independent to my brain. I'll get her if it kills me. 9 Jeanne d'Arc Lot of games could've taken this space (Fire Emblem perhaps) but I'll give it to this PSP import, purely as it had me wrapped around its finger, unable to play another game, during its entire story. 7 Portal I remember completing it and thinking 'damn, that was perfect'. Zero padding, short playthrough, I found myself wishing more games did this. 8 Hotline Miami Like most of us, I've killed a lot of virtual dudes. They drop like flies, and I seldom bat an eyelid. This game (briefly) changed that. At least until I adjusted, and died a little bit more inside. 10 FTL Played so much it started fucking with my head. Got under my skin, and stayed there. Haven't played it in a while, but thats because you have to take it one day at a time, i'm told. Beaten once, on easy. Had a Mantis who killed 11 people. He was an animal, and its the most attached i've ever been to a 2d sprite. I want to buy that Mantis a drink.
  18. Excellent, been waiting for that.. Thank you for posting.
  19. Tyvm boobn, much appreciated. Small tip left.
  20. If its not too late, could I get added for nips action? No worries if its too late
  21. A tiny cat called Katie just turned up in my town, asking me to take her to a new town. Anyone playing at the mo who could open doors? Also, pedo mayor on the run?
