  1. Lots of people! The warthog run used to get praised because it made an exciting ending by challenging the driving skills you'd learned through the game, instead of by introducing a boss fight like every other FPS. Yeah, for anyone with experience of FPSs, Heroic is normally a good difficulty to start on. Especially if you're playing with keyboard and mouse.
  2. What about examples of self-imposed rules that fans made up that were then officially adopted by the developers? For example, the Cat and Mouse multiplayer rules that fans made up for Project Gotham 2 (pairing up players into teams of fast racing car and slow Mini Cooper, the winning team being the one where both crossed the line first), which then became an official mode in PGR3. The same thing happened with Grifball in Halo.
  3. I wouldn't say they were more fun than the initial play through the game as intended, but for replay value, GoldenEye's cheats, customisable 007 difficulty, and end-of-level stats gave lots of scope for self-imposed challenges. Trying to complete every level with 100% headshots, or using the Magnum's ability to penetrate multiple enemies to try and finish a level with more kills than bullets (>100% accuracy!). I always liked activating the 2x Throwing Knives cheat and playing through the Facility level and trying to kill every enemy without missing any throws, and recovering eve
  4. *Sigh* I suppose it's up to me to say it this time... DID YOU KNOW? THE FUN FACT? ... That the Going for Gold theme was written by Hans Zimmer??? Little bit of little-known trivia for you to impress your friends with there.
  5. I think the only programme I occasionally watched on Channel 5 for its first few years was 100%: I always liked the way it was purely about QUESTIONS. No gimmicky formats! No conversations with the contestants! No visible presenter! No jokes! No audience! No applause! Just pure QUESTIONS filling the running time, as far as the eye can see!
  6. I remember watching that documentary, but didn't realise that it was 2006 - feels like it was more recent than that.
  7. I liked the Mega Drive version of Theme Park! Admittedly I hadn't played the PC or Amiga versions so had nothing to compare it to.
  8. As it's very unlikely I'll be playing through this myself in the foreseeable future, and I don't really mind being spoiled, I've been watching TB Skyen's playthrough/boss design analysis of this. (He did a series on the Dark Souls bosses that I really liked.) But just before he reached Vicar Amelia, something unfortunate and unlikely happened, which broke one of the NPC questlines. Skip to 15:10 in this video. You don't need to watch much of it; 15:10-19:20 covers the Pizza Incident and its aftermath: If you don't want to watch it:
  9. This is what we're reduced to when we haven't had a new film or TV series for over 15 months!
  10. In terms of recognition outside comics readers, yes, I think for a long time she was probably the most recognisable female superhero character name (even if most people couldn't tell you her powers or origin story). In the '70s, she'd been on the cover of the first issue of Ms magazine, then got the Lynda Carter TV series. That might not have been as popular as the Adam West Batman or the Superman series of the '40s (radio) and '50s (TV), but it was probably the most prominent live-action superhero adaptation of the '70s until the first Superman movie and the Incredible Hulk series
  11. How The Empire Strikes Back was presented in its US network TV premiere: People in the replies pointed out that this signal hijacking-themed promotional clip happened on the same day as the real Max Headroom broadcast signal intrusion!
  12. I think we're mixing up popularity among comics fans, and recognition among the general public. A-tier: Known to non-comics readers via TV/film adaptations and iconography: Superman, Batman, Spider-Man, Wonder Woman, Hulk. B-tier: Selling well to comics fans, but still not really known to non-comics readers: both Claremont's X-Men and Frank Miller's Daredevil were really popular in the early '80s (and X-Men was again in the early '90s). C-tier: The ones that weren't even popular enough among comics fans for movie studios to want to buy the rights. Iron Man,
  13. Illusorywall got saved in a PvP fight because someone rated his message:
