  1. Playtime == Broadmarsh centre. I liked it. Decided I had to purchase a game on principle. (Links 2004). Sabreman should be forced to wear a badge saying Sabreman for instant forumite recognition, however.
  2. Arcade boards that don't bankrupt the company making them?
  3. s5e12 That was fun.

    Innovation is where it (should) be at. We got the Lev anyway
  5. I've avoided Morrowind for precisely that purpose. Japanese RPGs (typified by): Travel around a very big map (Skies of Arcadia) slowly (Zelda:TWW) fighting turn based (Final Fantasy <n>) random battles (Final Fantasy <n>) with interminable cut-scenes (Final Fantasy X) simply so that you can level up [ whilst staying strictly to the extremely tight guidelines as to what your character can become - (Final Fantasy X's sphere grid) ] enough to do the next boss (Kingdom Hearts). The plot, meanwhile, will involve some pointless metaphysical thing (Final Fantasy - see the grudge forming here?) which would be better discussed in a book. The Witches Wake mod for Neverwinter Nights is great. Storytelling. Experience for *experiencing* stuff and not just (at all for) killing things. Experience for *role-playing* your character. But yeah - point and click - push analogue stick forward and hit X -> there's a definite limit on the interface for both types of game... [ Go on - be *evil* in a Square game - just try it... ]

    I need to faff around with the settings, and get my housemate to help check on his PC. I didn't hear anyone last night. --- Now, exactly why I decided to wander off during the first round on Ascendancy so that we lost I'm not sure. I'll apologise again. We whipped ass on the second round though

    Moral victory to us I think. Outnumbered. Outgunned. Outplayed
  8. The book's fine. The film sucks.
  9. Why hype a game three / five years after the fact - particularly in an article about performance optimisation? It's not as though unorthodox use of memory buffers is going to be high on anyone's list of requested features.

    Rhythm games

    Singstar. Kind of. Vib Ribbon. Well worth a look if you can find a second hand copy for a fiver. Mad Maestro makes interesting use of classical music, and the PS2 analogue buttons, but really does point out the problems with trying to make any kind of real game that relies on the PS2 analogue buttons...
  12. Ahhh. Played with two different sets of people this weekend. Firstly some blokes who laughed at me for buying it. And then decided it was stunningly good fun when we started playing it pissed. And then yesterday in a mixed group (sometimes with Eyetoy, sometimes without; some of whom could sing and some of whom could not ) just having a whale of a time. And really annoying the neighbours. Just wish I could have thought of someone else with a PS2 who'd have liked a £19.99 Playtime Nottingham copy...
  13. There was a classic bit of sub-forum-speculation in the News section. So classic, that I can't remember what it was...
  14. "I think the Xbox is more popular in the Western World than the PS2" I suggest you widen your circle of friends.

    Hmm. Away this weekend. *next* wednesday evening. The first wednesday of June. 9pm. Who's there?
  16. Planescape is stunning. But you couldn't call it under-rated - it's in the top two* PC RPG list of just about everyone who's ever played it. * There are some idiots who like console style "RPG"s.
  17. You really do need to read other people's posts, Soong. "Singstar comes with two microphones" "Singstar only works with those microphones". And so on.

    My sister lives in Ipswich - but I usually drive (which is pretty silly really since it's a two hour slog).
