I'm about halfway through the first one, even though it's rough round the edges and fairly repetitive I'm really enjoying it. Got number 2 to start on once I finish it, which I understand is a lot better


I found 2 lost some of the atmosphere, but its far far less repetitive than the 1st one and the story is a lot longer.

EDIT: Though don't get me wrong, I am a HUGE fan of both games. They're both excellent.


Basically how I feel about it. Hit the nail on the head.

F zero gx came today, it is fucking amazing. It really is one of the best racing games ever made. It is fucking hard though.

I got hold of Dragon Age origins for £15 not long back and playing through that..seems pretty good so far. came with the stone prisoner for that price as well

and still and will forever do it play through Guild wars will all the expansion on it..why can't number 2 be out already we've weighted like 4 years for it!

also hyped up about the new Legend of zelda game due out next year..dam it looks good that and ocarina of time era with twilight princess type graphics and cell shading from wind waker making it pretty...why can't I have it now and not have to wight possibly for another year or so!

The Dragon Age and Mass effect DCL dıd my head ın wıth all the thıngs you have to sıgn up to and log ınto. Its just a massıve hassle and theres no reason why they couldnt just do ıt on the standard XBL servıce.

In assorted cut scenes I:

Punched a female reporter
Shot a droid in the head
Threw a dude out of a window
Shot a girl I couldn't prove was guilty

So, yeah. I love more cutscenes, because you can interact, if only through optional QTEs but I find that the game benefits from them more. ME2 is a total beast, sank 55 hours+ plus on normal, and still going with the Overlord DLC. Then I'll probably replay it!

Red: It works really intuitively on PC, you log in to EA and you get all the good stuff. Besides, Bioware will always be primarily developing games for PC.

I was considering preordering Worms Reloaded. I'm definitely going to get it at some point, anyway. Wonder if it'll be better than World Party, as that's quite a tall order?

Doooo eeeet!

1) It's Worms
2) It's not 3d Worms.
3) This cannot be bad.

I'm tempted to play Brutal Legend for the 3rd time.

It shouldn't be so good but for some reason it is.

Wait, they're still making Worms games that aren't in shitty 3D? Why has nobody told me about this!?

Damnit.

I hoped it'd be on the cheap. I haven't got 16 quid to spend on worms.
I haven't got 16 quid at all :lol:

I decided ton play more banjo tooie today, it is such a fucking chore of a game. Also it gives me flare ups I think. I might e-mail the illness bigwigs and let them know. I don't think it is all rare games though, I was ok when playing perfect dark.
