  1. A bit of both. I was told yesterday by GAME that it's pre-order only and any that they have left they'll send back to Sony (idiots), also if you pre-order you have to pick them up at midnight. HMV said they've stopped pre-ordering but if they have any, they'll sell at the till. So I was panicking a bit... till I realised Argos will have them definitely (no pre-ordering or Ring-&-Reserve allowed on PSP). So my plan was to pop into HMV and GAME on the way, if they didn't have any, I'd go to Argos (who open at 10am). Went into HMV Picadilly Circus and they had 3 behind the counter. Bloke said that they got them in just that moment (which was around 10am). Probably bullshit but at least I have it.

    All In A Name

    Game titles in Japan tends to be better than the equivalent in the US or Europe. For example, "Winning Eleven" or "Perfect Eleven" to me sounds more imaginative than "Pro Evolution" or "International Superstar Soccer".
  3. O really? I was actually looking forward to seeing a Street Fighter on the PSP (even though I have most of them on various formats).

    DangerM in another bollocks post shocker! Whatever. Thought you lot might want to see how stupid this person was... but all I get is abuse! *boohoo* *sniff*

    Read this post from http://forums.gamespace.net.au/showthread.php?t=4822 Idiot!
  6. It's Maxwell and Science up for nomination. I really really really hope Maxwell goes. I'll be soooo happy if he does, I might go and buy the last 3 BB DVDs if he does!
  7. That would suggest that their specs weren't up to it, if that was the case.
  8. Yeah but they could wait a bit and upgrade the specs of the console, in order to make sure that it's here for the long haul. It won't be good if the console's lifespan drops off early just cos certain aspects of it is underpowered.
  9. I would wager that the decision to include DVD seems sensible at this point, but maybe in about 5 years towards the end of the console's lifetime, it may come back to haunt them. Fair enough they will probably introduce an HD-DVD add-on later on, but add-ons are never popular at the best of times (remember the SEGA-CD?) so it might be in their best interests to include HD-DVD from the start (and delay the console as end of 2005 is far too early for a console launch in any case).
  10. Mario Kart on Super NES and GameCube usually makes me want to smash something. No other console has games that does this. Nintendo must be doing something right... or wrong, depending on how you look at it.

    Tekken 5

    The silly thing is that Tekken 4 was technically better than 3. I liked the sloping floors and walls you can back onto, but on the whole it just seemed nowhere good enough. I prefer Tekken Tag, cos the tag element was class, but will probably end up getting Tekken 5 at some point.

    Carton is better. Ages ago used to get bottled milk but we'd never drink it all before it went off so got them from supermarket instead.
  13. Sounds like The Guardian. Wot a shit paper
  14. Yeah, pity that the old text seemed to suggest that the game was "quality". Good thing they changed it too, probably sick of all the phonecalls about shite games and their "Seal Of Quality"
  15. It should always be about the basics. Methinks it's all downhill from now on...
  16. Check out my game collection, pretty all the Super NES games there are classics.
  17. It seems to me that they're just erring on the side of caution, even though they know it's virtually no chance of a Gameboy causing a crash. It's more of a case of "you never know"
  18. Seeing as a PSP is a handheld, then no you are not supposed to be playing it in a plane on take-off and landing (like the Gameboy). No exception. If this rule is still in place in 20 years, then whatever handheld is out there, be it some holographic one or whatever, will be subject to the same rules.
  19. Is that annoying American kid talking out of the side of his face? Yes he is! What a twat!
  20. It's an US Super NES official pad connected to a GBA. At least you'll be able to play Street Fighter properly on it.
  21. Super Monkey Ball, utter classic! Mario Kart Double Dash! classic too!
  22. It would be interesting, that's for sure.
  23. The worst thing is being 3-0 up and watching your team get stuffed in the 2nd half and all the subs and changing tactics doesn't save your day.
  24. Well exactly, we could go on all day about how this console did this and which console didn't have that. But if we were talking about sales, then we all know which was the more popular console, in ALL territories. But the fact is, I'd be more than worried with what Nintendo are supposedly planning. They've been pretty off the ball since the N64 days, compared to Sony and Microsoft, although Microsoft have had it difficult with their first console, they did do one good thing, the Xbox Live! thing was brilliant. I'm sure you'd buy Nintendo regardless, but lets hope it doesn't turn into another GameCube, cos that isn't exactly blessed with a whole load of killer games.
  25. Well, the N64 didn't have Gran Turismo for a start (or any realistic racing game that can compare)... or Tekken (or any beat-em-up that can compare, oh but the Saturn did)... or Final Fantasy (oh yeah Square took their series away from Nintendo because Nintendo insisted on using carts). No matter how you look at it, the N64 was a failure. Pure and simple. The Super NES did far far better than the N64 could ever hope to do.
