  1. That's something else, the guy said that it definitely would not be online. I can't remember the reason, but it sucked
  2. That's completely diferent to what I've heard. Gamespot interviewed one of the developers during E3, and the only single-player information they managed to coax out of him were these: Only Samus will be playable. She will begin the game with all her abilities intact. The ship will be flyable, allowing you to travel between diferent planets. Collectables will be mainly in the form of new weapons and ammo. The other characters will make appearances, which sounds to me like they'll be bosses. Basically I'm expecting a proper single-player game, albeit more combat orientated than the GC Prime games.
  3. Nope. They've kept the name for the UK release
  4. He's bi-sexual. Russel T. Davies said so, so there
  5. Indeed Still RTD said right at the start the first series would be set entirely on and around Earth, but that the second would branch out to include other worlds. I think he's trying to break a new audience into the concept and characters first, keeping the setting at least vaguely familiar. Besides based on the success of the series I'd expect the second to have an even bigger budget, allowing for alien worlds a little more interesting than quarry no. 475.
  6. Three, and from the looks of things it's a three parter
  7. Anyone hoping to buy Gears of War at the 360 launch will be in for a dissapointment. It's not out until Spring next year
  8. Don't worry, he was wrong about the GB Micro. That can only play GBA carts, so GB and GBC games are a no no.
  9. The dude at the conference mentioned it would have the rumble feature as I recall, so no worries there
  10. Exactly. For the most part at least. One boss in particular comes in two halves, the first you have to actually kill before you can start on the bounty. Bear in mind that even attacks that focus on stamina do some damage, so it's best to not hurt the guy too much beforehand if possible.
  11. My little brother beat him on Legendary a few weeks ago. Bearing in mind I can't get past the first level his skill is quite scary. Anyway he did it by basically being a coward. He kept running up to the top level, leaving everyone else to battle it out on the lower levels. Tartarus would often stand by the lift shaft thing below, leaving him open to attack from the top while everyone else kept him busy. At one point he was getting pinned down by constant needler fire. Anyway if Tartarus ever got his act together and came after him he just jumped back down and then up again after a brief chase. Amusingly he actually killed him while he was being propelled up the lift beam thing, leaving his corpse to fly up and over the edge
  12. I've never played mine in a pub, but I've happily done so on trains. I also had a bit of a multiplayer session in one my uni's common rooms. I didn't feel at all self conscious.
  13. Yup. Their stamina bar should be depleted too, which means the same thing. By the way I've just fought a boss that didn't get knocked over by thudslugs. They still took a good chunk out of their stamina bar though, so you just have to make good use of cover and keep moving.
  14. You have to actually wear their stamina bar right down as opposed to just making them fall over. They should have three gold stars spinning around their head when you do. I find a failsafe way to knock them out is with a combination of thudslugs and charged zapflies. Hit them with a thudslug, then fire off a charged zappfly when they're on the ground. As soon as they're up again hit them with another thudslug before they can move, then hit them with a zappfly again. If you run out of thudslugs then stuck to the charged zappflies. They won't knock them over so you'll have to keep moving, but as long as you don't let up they should get the job done. It's worked for every boss I've used it on so far.
  15. Well I had decided to ignore this, but after hearing it features single cart multiplayer I just couldn't resist. I can't wait! I haven't played a Ridge Racer game since Type 4 on the PS1, which I loved.
  16. Being stuck with analogue TV I have yet to see the first season Still I bought the miniseries DVD last week, watched all three hours straight through and loved it. Naturally I've preordered the season one box set. Based on the miniseries this has the potential to be absolutely immense. I was a little worried that it wouldn't be granted a second series after the precedents of Farscape and Firefly. That it has after all is great news

    Half Life 2

    I finally bought this on the weekend after taking back the (quite appaling) Warrior Withhin. I was amazed to find that the demo ran smoothly on my laptop (on max resolution and full model and texture detail no less) and just couldn't resist it. I'm currently in the middle of Anticitizen One, and I have to say this is the first game I've played to ever give me that true ten out of ten feeling. It's just perfect! The AI, physics, scripting, level design and basic gameplay all work together to create an incredibly immersive atmosphere. Bungie have a lot to learn.
  18. Well my Mega Drive versions of Sonic 1 and 2 have borders. Maybe's it's just trying to be authentic. Either that or my Mega Drive is buggered.
  19. In Denmark the highest rating is 16 as I recall. I also seem to recall that Starship Troopers is an 11 over there
  20. To be honest I hadn't really thought that through. I just figured that if it works for movies then why not games? Point taken though. Alternatively how about a system more akin to America? Their games are all given legally binding age certificates from the ESRB. Maybe if the PEGI ratings were treated in the same way it would at least stop children buying 18+ titles. I suppose PEGI could always change their designs to coloured circles BBFC style.
  21. I say expand the BBFC's duties to cover all games in the future. Adopt the film rating system in its entirety, from Universal to 18. These are ratings that everybody understands, and if more games were given BBFC certificates parents might start tp realise that some games may be unsuitable for their children. At the other end of the scale a nice friendly U certificate would be very reasuring to parents with young children. Of course parents would still be able to buy games for underage children, but then what else can you do?
  22. According to one review I read the Xbox version suffers from sound problems during the cutscenes. Apparantly the GC version is the best of the three, being good looking and glitch free.
  23. Just to add my two cents on the new Biffovision thing, I also much prefered the original column. As others have said the new layout is messy, and intentional or not it just doesn't seem to look like part of the same magazine. As for the purely for humour approach, the last few Biffovision columns before the redesign literally had me in uncontrolable fits of laughter. The two new style pages did not. Basically before the redesign Mr. Biffo was able to write decent articles with a worthwhile point while being utterly hillarious at the same time. If it aint broke... Apart from Biffovision I'm loving the redesign now. The latest issue seems to have found the perfect balance. There's a lot more going on on the pages now, yet it doesn't fall into the usual mish mash you find in most other games mags. Instead it has the effect of presenting a more vibrant feel to the old design while still maintaining its uniqueness. Keeping the columns at the front would ruin the flow of the magazine due to the size of the Start section, but at the same time they don't really feel right at the back either. It's a compromise I suppose I'll just get used to over time. It's nice to see RedEye back at the front.
  24. What's more in Mario 64 DS you hear are Mario "Bye Bye!" soundbyte, followed by a "It's a me, Mario!" when you open it up again. Genious! Anyway on my first charge my DS lasted somewhere between eight and nine hours I think.
  25. The wrist strap thing has a thumb strap on the end, so you can tighten it around your thumb and use the screen like an analigue stick. The instruction manual has diagrams
