Re: The Wii Homebrew Channel Released.

This update blocks the Twilight hack, has apparently bricked a few homebrew channel enabled Wiis, and also has stopped freeloader working QQ

Re: The GTA IV Thread

Quite a few people I know have complained that it's 'just GTA3 again in higher res' and miss the scale of SA, but I particularly appreciate the new gunplay and police system. Fighting large groups of people used to be a real chore as you'd end up fighting the controls almost as much as the NPCs, but...

Re: Boom Blox is awesome.

I've only heard good things about it and am looking forward to it, I'm just a little disappointed that the end result of Steven Spielbergs creativity and EAs massive amounts of financial and technical resources is fucking Jenga.

Re: Dead 60GB PS3 owners owned

I didn't know that at the time when I posted this a month ago. As of right now, the 40GB is the only console available. My bad, I didn't see how old this topic was. it wasn't even half way down the front page. ...do people here not talk about videogames anymore or something? It is pretty odd that S...

Re: Dead 60GB PS3 owners owned

Except the 80GB model is discontinued as well (at least in the US), and that was the one with emulation. The only one currently in production is the 40GB one, and that has no emulation whatsoever. So if you send a broken PS3 to Sony that's unrepairable, you're probably going to be stuck with a 40GB...

Re: Questions about migrating/upgrading to an Xbox 360 Elite

XBLA purchases are tied to both gamertag and actual Xbox 360. So you can't sell them on, unless you sell the whole gamertag, which I'm guessing you don't want to do. As for the 360s crappy DRM system, what partially worked for me after I had to get my 360 refurbed due to RROD was recovering my gamer...

Re: Free Games

http://www.freecol.org/ Open source clone / remake of Colonization. Very very nice version of it too, plays like I remember it, the only problem I've found is it doesn't tell you what each city improvement actually does before building it, but any Colonization fans will already know. Also, Team Fort...

I always wonder when Americans love the GTA games if they realise just how much of it is R*North taking the piss out of their entire culture and belief system?

Re: Free Games

Are they working again? Because I had Far Cry installed, but then one day the game said the promotion ended and wouldn't load the game anymore. Dunno tbh, I already own all of them (albeit rayman on the wii and PoP on the PS2). Theres some kind of message on the downloads page for them about requir...

Re: Game of the Year 2007: your choices

1) Team Fortress 2. On PC. I don't give a shit how badly they fucked up the console ports, it's the best online FPS out there, bar none. Fuck Halo 3s decade old game mechanics, broken matchmaking systems and reliance on style (hype) over substance. Fuck COD4s fundamentally broken perks system and m...

Re: Dirt Demo

When I play a FPS I like to feel like I am somewhere. That is probably why I hated PREY so much. That entire game took place on a mazing boring looking alien ship. I think the reason I liked Half-life 2 so well was because of the level design. This is one of the reasons the Timesplitters series is ...

Re: Got ATI? Get HL2:Deathmatch & HL2:Lost Coast, free

I reiterate my recommendation of Dystopia then, especially if you like objective / class based, team oriented shooters instead of straight up death match.

Plus it has hacking.
