  1. You'll find HTTP downloads here if you're still having no luck with the torrents.
  2. 'Super Castlevania IV' is absolutely essential.
  3. You, sir, are an absolute star. Seems much nicer than even the fixed UKNova rip, despite the smaller file size. Cheers! The ep, then: Without a doubt the best episode so far... Couldn't fault a moment really. Everything worked, and everything seemed tight. The series really seems to be finding its feet. That Guitar Hero stuff was pure magic, as was the Katamari challenge. Ace. If only we were getting more than six episodes.
  4. The version on my site's the UKNova cap. It's not perfect but it looks like it's all there is at the moment, so any problems are forgiven.If anyone's got their hands on a better version I'd appreciate a shove in the right direction so I can add it to the archive.
  5. Direct download's up: http://mirror.pixelated-ape.org/videogaiden/season_2/ Enjoy!
  6. Don't worry about it... It's not like you're under any obligation to even try to cap the show, so your effort's very much appreciated. The torrentless hordes will just have to have a bit of patience this week, that's all. Just got around to watching this on the Sky+ box, so a few impressions: The whole show seemed even stronger this week. Really feels like it's finding its feet. I loved The Eternal Pixel this time around. It was probably the weakest chunk last week but this time it was pure magic. The reviews were as good as ever. I've not touched an ice-hockey game in about a decade and Rab's review convinced me to give EA's effort a chance - You're obviously doing something right. The Pathologic review cracked me up... I'll have to look in to that one as it sounds like it might be worth a punt. The commentary on the state of games journalism was spot on. I'm guessing not naming some names took a bit of restraint... The Allard/Crystal Maze stuff and the Gordon Bennet cameo got big laughs, as did the Brain Training stuff.
  7. The moment I get my hands on a cap it'll show up there, but since polygon_monkey's capture went south this week it'll probably not be until I can grab UKNova's release. I'm scouring the interweb for another source but I wouldn't hold your breath, folks.If anyone did get a cap but doesn't have the means to host it then PM me and I'll FTP you up real nice. I was in the process of ripping the BBC stream as a stop-gap but it keeps cutting me off halfway through. Sorry guys.
  8. No problem, fella. God-like genius!
  9. I'm in the process of re-upping it now... 23 minutes to go.
  10. I'd almost forgotten this was coming. Between the DS and the 360 it's shaping up to be an expensive Christmas.
  11. It's £17.99 delivered at MovieTyme. Bargain of the century, that, and no mistake.
  12. £23? I'll be having that. Cheers for the heads-up.
  13. The original B&W pilot movie is doing the rounds on usenet at the moment. I got a grey kitty, white one, and a tabby too, And a big orange guy who put snakes in my shoe. Mad MC skills leave ya struck, And I roll with ma kitties, and I'm hard as fuck. Bubbles. Great character or the GREATEST character?
  14. This.I can't imagine having to choose between the two. A couple of days ago I'd have probably plumped for Ouendan but the more time I spend with EBA the more it grows on me. They're both works of ultra-camp genius and I honestly couldn't pick one over the other anymore. You can get the pair for <£50. It'd be a crime not to.
  15. Great stuff, as expected. The Dead Rising review was the highlight for me. Pleased to hear you guys enjoyed it as much as I did. Not seen anyone else do such a good job of summing up what makes it so great. The Gaiden Guide to You was pure genius. Pure hitting a bit too close to home genius. "At least I know my way around a fictional hoose..." Nice to hear a spot of the Doobie Brothers again. You torrent-averse sorts can get it now at: http://mirror.pixelated-ape.org/videogaiden/season_2/ (Thanks to polygon_monkey for the lovely rip.) Still having some server problems so be prepared for slow transfers until I get a chance to shout at the support people. A download manager like FDM that allows multiple threads might help you.
  16. Just finished hard mode and unlocked the Elite Beat Divas. Better than Ouendan's insane mode characters but I'm a bit disappointed that you don't get to play as the Ouendan fellas themselves. The end of hard-mode 'Jumpin' Jack Flash' is just: Either 'Hard ROCK' mode is a bit more forgiving to make up for the quicker/smaller targets or I've suddenly developed l33t sk1llz. I've yet to unlock 'Survivor.' Anyone figured out how the unlocking works yet?
  17. Crikey, it's not long now is it? Haven't been this excited about the telly since Gamesmaster when I was a nipper. It's nice to be one of the Sky crowd this time around instead of associating with those manky NTL losers. PM incoming! Glad I could help spread the love, and I'll try to keep on love-spreading until the BBC do the right thing and put out a DVD. Mind you, knowing the BBC if they did it'd only be for sale down the Barras.
  18. I don't have the means to rip it but I'll be adding it to my collection at http://mirror.pixelated-ape.org once I get my hands on it.I've been having a few problems with my host so the download speeds might not be too hot for the next few days, but it's not going to be disappearing any time soon. At least not until the BBC come knocking...
  19. That'd be a fair criticism, I think. The game does tend to handhold you a little more than other point-and-clicks, especially early on. It does get gradually more difficult but there are no epic and deviously intertwined puzzles, it's all fairly simple stuff. If you're in it for a hardcore set of puzzles rather than a 'nice' lighthearted story then it's likely one to skip over. That said, there were a few places that had me stumped for a while.
  20. I don't know if that's good or bad, but it's definitely got me interested in Veronica Mars. To the usenet mobile!
  21. Feedback from actual gamers seems to be way more positive than the mainstream reviews, even the GameFAQS crowd who I wouldn't normally expect to go for something like this. DJ Mike's spot on... I've always found the IGN readers' opinions way more useful than the 'professional' ones.
  22. The first game had a few nods to us internet dorks mixed in there, but this one took things that bit too far in places. There were parts of case 3 that felt like they'd handed the translation job to some kid from 4chan... Definitely the weakest writing in the two DS releases. I imagine there were a lot of Japanese jokes that just couldn't work in English and had to be replaced with something. There was certainly nothing so bad it interfered with my enjoyment of the game but I'd like them to reign in the the translators a bit for the next game. That said, the 'Fresh Prince' reference made me LOL hard, sloppy typos and all.
  23. It's charming. It's certainly short-lived but while it lasted I really enjoyed it. Lovely art style, great characters, enjoyable stories, and a wonderful atmosphere that hits just the right mix of childish and sinister. Genuinely funny, too. I've noticed it's had quite a panning from the reviewers, but a lot of it seems unfair. The 'illogical' puzzles seem to be the main gripe, that and 'OMG ITS TEH KIDDIE LOLZ!' Some of the solutions are slightly odd due to the dream-like nature of the game world, but things are always well signposted and consistent with the game's logic, if not the real world's. With the exception of one puzzle the answer is always obvious once you figure it out. I get the impression that the reviewers were frantically skipping through the text and just jumping from puzzle to puzzle... Played that way I guess their gripe could stand. If you're not an ADHD diagnosed, 14-year-old American you'll get on fine.
  24. I found 'Canned Heat' ridiculously hard at first, but now it's clicked it's become a favourite. That and 'Highway Star' were the big sticking points for me.I'm now stuck on hard 'Jumpin' Jack Flash' too... After the second chorus there are a bunch of notes that don't seem to fit with the music at all, and they get me every time. Heeeeaaaalp!
