I always preferred the F-Zero series. Real shame GX was the last one.

Theres about a 30min gameplay demo of Skyrim floating around on IGN/You tube at the mo, altho it will just make u more impatient for the wait.

Just got Dead Island and after not being overly keen on it at the beginning about an hour later it has become well worth the money and im loving it.

Chaos makes an appearance out of left-field and an Ork Warboss just beat the shit out of some ripoff version of Abaddon the Despoiler.

Space Marine [is a good game] has one good cutscene.

I saw that, and I have to say that I'm somewhat looking forward to six months after the release, when it'll finally be playable (Judging by previous Bethesda release quality.)
Most of my anticipation, however, comes from the fact that it looks approximately as un-Oblivion as possible while still being Elder Scrolls.

I wasnt all that interested wasting £40+ particularly when everyones thoughts on the game was mainly negative, and the game play has more than just a few teething problems, but I was a massive fan of the original (which I also have on xbox), and I feel its worth wasting twelve knicker on.

I paid £15 for it second hand. I regret nothing.

Adam Jensen once overheard a guard telling a story about almost getting killed by a tipping vending machine. So Adam Jensen killed him with a vending machine. Deus Ex.

There were so many instances of me sneaking up behind two guards but not having the patience to let them finish their conversation before using the double takedown, I must've missed loads of stuff like this :(

Developed by a different company, written by a different guy.

I dont' want to make a judgement off 1:30, but it doesn't look like the Max Payne I know and love. Hopefully the full game proves me wrong.

I give up on Turok. Its absolutely shite and not a mark on the one that I played on the N64 all those years ago. Time for a visit to CEX.

I know this will be as bad as all the rest new Sonic games, but I really want it to be good.

When I saw the first screenshots of it I thought this and I still think that after watching the trailer, it just doesnt look as gritty and dark as the old ones

And it's the only ending a Rockstar game can have now. It was so shit in Red Dead, I remember my exact thinking

'Oh, his son, well I guess this could be alright if he's like his dad, and he has the same mighty horse as before...'
