  1. I watch about 3 hours television a week, yet have seen no less that 12 adverts for this title on Sky One. As the company feel it needs to give Murdoch money, they wont get mine!

    That may be so, but all kids like to play - which is essentially what gaming is. I actually wouldn't encourage a boy or girl to start gaming till in there teens, but any difference would be highlighted in the way they play a game, rather than if they play a game.

    This puts me in mind of the small amount of women I know who were bought up playing football. They had parents that didn’t enforce there own views of what a ‘girl’ should be per se, but rather let them be interested in what ever took there fancy -this in stark contrast to many girls who were not allowed to play boisterous sports that were not ‘ladylike’. That your daughter plays games, is suggestive that the apparent lack of interests that woman, girls, have toward gaming is in fact a product of there youth and upbringing… or something less complicated and more eloquent.

    Well that is true, not all chaps are 'into' games, the point that is often worked and often reported is the overall lack of female gamers.

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/3496963.stm So what! Do I care? Does it matter? Is it a great shame that girls do not play games, or that girls increasingly are playing games? Obviously if you work for EA, or any publisher then clearly it matters. I mean that is 50% of the world population, but for the gamer does it matter. I find statements like this quite unbelievable and perhaps suggest contrivance rather than genuine feelings. In fact, I think it is complete bollocks. Online gaming is an asexual world and only really sexualised by extremely sad bastards that try and pretend to be girls online… having played counterstrike I can’t see how gender has anything to do with feeling unwelcome, or overpowered – I myself felt completely overwhelmed the first time I played – nothing to do with anything other than my crap skills…
  7. Well I plan on doing BST only party parties - take on any mob, no trouble... that's Bne's idea and I think it is very interesting. BST is ideally suited to solo and I think that must attract a certain type of player; thus maybe a myth has arisen about BST not being good in a party. Imagine a party with BRD, BST and DRG - any other 3 would make that a formidable party indeed.
  8. I'll get something else then!

    Fao Albion

    REGEN BLAZE SPIKES minimal MP suckers!!
  10. Shenmue - gave literally no real freedom, yet could have been so much better. To highlight just how little freedom you had, when you needed to buy a 'ticket', you were not allowed to spend your money on anything else (it was not the case that money was not recoverable either). It wanted you to 'be' the character too much, in fact, at the expense of it being an actually game. Old point and click feel to it, with simple tasks to perform before the next stage. Dissappointing given what I was expecting after all the glowing reviews.
  11. At the moment, we are all in the same place (Windurst) and probably collecting the same sort of items (as beast drops). Might I suggest that you specialise in clothcraft, or bonecraft and use the procedes from AH sales to purchase costly cookery items. Although it sounds like a cop out, I really can't see you easily getting enough items together for a decent meal. Of the items you put Millicorn Firecrystals Bird eggs Distilled water the only I pick up at all are birds eggs and firecrystals - both of which are independently useful.
  12. He made the game, a real enigma was created with the character, which gave the whole title a slightly sisniter theme and feel. In some parts of FFVII, when confronted with long dead civilisations you got a real sense of lost hstory - from a game... the soundtrack was possibly even more important. Amazing, seminal title. I hear peopel say that 5 has the better story, which on paper may be true but the story is not as well realised as with FFVII, that is what marks it as so great.

    Manhunt banned

    Are you saying Tenchu isn't violent?! Oh, and Manhunt, not impressed at all. In comparrison, yes I am saying that... and don't give me hard time, I have a shocking hangover whose form is being taken as dizziness. I agree though, manhunt is pretty poor, derivative and cliched.

    violent tenchu, basically.

    XIII meet

    I have the game, but how do you do a meet on it?
  17. Lets segregate ourselves. It's a real shame that you were born into an age of intolerance, but that 'age' will be the longer if segregation is the way forward.
