    Top Spin 3

    Couple of tips; as soon as you've taken your shot, get back into the middle of the court and then hold down your shot button to charge up your shot right away. Also, when returning, just hold down the button right away. There's no need to get into position before you hold the button down, because even with a charging shot you should be able to get into position without too much bother. Unless I'm on the back foot, I'm holding the button down for my next swing as soon as I've let a shot go. Once your timing becomes better, you'll get better with the direction of your shots. You'll then get start to get the hang of where your body position is in relation to different length of opposition shots. It's instinct really. I'm smashing back even slightly short shots now, simply buy shifting my feet forwards once notch as I hit the shot, then shifting back to get back into position. Even a slight change of feet position at the right time can win you the point, or lose it if you're standing in the wrong place. I fucking love this game.

    Top Spin 3

    Having a blast with this.... it's bloody excellent. It's a little sterile (in the same way that Forza 2 is) in that there's a 'rinse and repeat' element to the career mode that's lacking a little style, but the gameplay itself is fantastic. Playing through the Pro mode now, and I'm finding it a little easy. Winning all the Hard tournaments (on Normal difficulty) with only Andy Roddick proving a challenge (due to his powerful serves). Gonna switch to Hard difficulty when I get home.

    It's a bug. You can't save replays from the replay that it throws up after a goal. Exit the reply; and as soon as you can, select the replay option from the menu and the option to upload should be available.

    Top Spin 3

    It's a progressive thing. I've only just got stuck into it, and I'm playing the Juniors at the moment. You get a choice of an Easy or Hard tournament each month of the year, and you earn XP as you win matches and tournaments. I think I was told at the start to earn a ranking in the top 3 in order to progress (to the Pros I assume), and I'm ranked second with 2 months remaining. I assume that if you don't rank in the top 3 you start another season; the advantage being that you'll start again with a stronger character due to the XP earnt in the first year (you spend XP on levelling your base stats, RPG style). I suppose you play as many seasons as it takes to earn a spot in the top 3 and the move onto the Pros - where I guess you start playing the grand slam tournaments. I must say, I'm loving this at the moment. I've always been quite good at tennis games, and the control system is similar to Pro Tennis Tour 2 on the Amiga, so I've been able to time the ball well from the start. Sailed through the tennis school, and I'm not having much trouble on the Junior tour so far - even the hard tournaments (although they are challenging).
  6. Aye. A week in the case of these threads beginning on a Friday (due to most games being released on this day) through to the next Thursday.

  8. Aye. Time will tell. They were posting on those forums asking for background artists. Either they've been fooled by these artists into thinking it's their own work, or they've failed to get anyone decent onboard and have panicked into stealing assets from other games. Even if it's the lesser of the two evils where the devs are concerned, it's piss poor project management on their part. By all accounts, they've been masters of spin these guys. They've clearly knocked out a dreadful product (compared to most published games) using an RPG maker and other dev tools, yet somehow they've managed to blag a publisher. If this had been a self-published downloadable game on their website, there'd be no fuss over it. As it turns out, their grandiose ambitions to get this game out there has backfired on them spectacularly.
  9. Aye, members of the Lost cast Limbo'ing on the beach please. kthx
  10. That upside down half-dead zombie thing sounds like George from Rainbow!!
  11. Saw an advert for it on tele. It's like an interactive recipe book, where you shout "continue" and it reads out each step on the recipe as you cook. I'm tempted by Top Spin 3, I must say.
  12. Cheers for that. Updated the list (and my database). Ta.

    The site has been neglected mate. Working on another project at the moment, so I'll be going back to recode this at some point.
  15. You need to sleep to level up, if you haven't been. If you have been and you still aren't levelling up, it's no biggie. If anything, it means you're increasing your abilities in skills other than your primary skills, which means you won't be massively unbalanced when you do level up your primary skills.

    Pretty good review. Not as edgy as I was expecting from you Chase, but it reads well and I agree with your opinions on the game.
  17. It was out yesterday, so was included in last weeks list.

  19. Fair do's. I've got Spiderman 3 to watch with the nipper at some point!
  20. I don't mind people saying they don't like it, that's fine. People have described plenty of reasons that they dislike it, which are fair when you're talking about something as subjective as a film. It's the arrogant comments like Festoon's that get my back up - and the suggestion that having a differing opinion means you're an idiot. It just makes him come across as a bit of a tit.
  21. You state that 'a bad film is a bad film' - yet you also state that it's dull, overly long and irritating; which are clearly subjective issues that you have with it. Maybe the fact that not everyone finds it dull, overly long or irritating means that it's not actually that bad. As I said earlier, I enjoyed it. Maybe I'm a bit soft. Or an idiot.

  23. I'm sooo missing this game, but thankfully I have a lifetime subscription so I'll hopefully dip back into it sometime. My Kinship has disbanded now, so I'm on my own again No biggie though, as it'll be good to play and not have the pressure of running a kinship. Can anyone sum up what the changes have been like? I think I gave up just before they introduced the housing.
