Gamer Videos. [Nov. 2nd, 2006|08:05 pm]

I was going through some old video links and I found a few that might be intresting. I'll put the games related ones in this post. I won't use embedded videos so they don't crash any PCs. They are all browser videos too.

I'm a bit stuck. [Oct. 27th, 2006|12:18 pm]

So, I got F-Zero GP the other day and I'm blazing through it. I have nearly all the GPs done, but I have hit a block in the story mode.

Its Captain Falcon 4 (I think) where you race against Blood Falcon. The problem is the track, where you have to use jump pads on the side walls. It seems impossable to get enough speed up to make the big jump about halfway in. It also seems that there is no way to make the multiple jumps afterward without flying off the track. I assume there is some sort of trick to doing it. Any help would be nice.

I also played the Warhammer 40k Dark Crusade Demo. It's nice. I had a noticable lag in performance and the graphics were a bit blurry. Turned out I still had anti-aliasing and various other high end graphics settings on from playing Quake 2. Duh. So if you do go playing with your graphics card, don't forget to put the settings back when you are done. : )

Update: I finaly did that bit.

DS nooz [Oct. 24th, 2006|06:42 pm]

Okay, this is old news, but I just found out and thought some people might like to know.

Firstly. A big shipment of DS lite black was stolen in Hong Kong, where it is ment to be exclusive. After that, Lik-Sang (a well known games importer. I have never used them myself) has been shut down by Sony. This might effect DS stuff because I often see shops with US DS games in. I saw Starfox a few weeks ago and it's not due out here till the end of next month. I quick word of warning to anyone thinking of importing. Single cart multi-player will work, but multi cart play won't as they won't talk to each other. (Thats why I didn't get Starfox)

It also seems that Mario Kart DS have a different boot on a DS lite, saying 'Here we go' instead of the usual 'Yahoo!'. I hope they don't start putting in Lite only content in games. (Nintendo did it before with Zelda on the GBC that had an exclusive area if played on a GBA)

On a more up-to-date note. I saw Mech Assault DS in the shop yesterday, but havn't found any reviews of it. Anyone know if it's any good?

I also got F-Zero GP Legends for 8 quid. Bargain. Try shopping around for GBA games while they are selling them off cheap to make room for PSP and DS stuff.

CGI over live action [Oct. 22nd, 2006|10:57 pm]

So, I saw this FMV clip from the Halo Wars. I couldn't help but think that they should do the Halo film like that. Seriously. It would be fantastic. Given that the Halo film is going to be live action, I can't help but think about how much of the film is going to be CG.

Intresting [Oct. 16th, 2006|09:38 pm]

First off. This place needs an injection of green colour or something, cos it's pritty lifless at the mo.

There is an intresting article on CVG about the top 25 Xbox live Gamercard acheivments thing. Worth checking out. here-
http://www.computerandvideogames.com/article.php?id=147693

I also saw some nice looking screens of a wii game called 'Monster 4x4 World Circuit'. It's alegedly a remake of a Xbox game, and dosn't look like an excite truck beater, but looks nice all the same. Here are the screens to get your jollies off or on with or whatever.

(What is this thing for putting loads of motion blur in next gen games?)

There is also a clip on frame for the wii remote that makes it like a stearing wheel. It looks like getting a wii means drowning in plastic crap. The blaster looks good though...

I just read this article on cvg.co.uk that had there most wanted Xbox Live Arcade games. It's standard nostalga rubbish. The only real suprise was kiler instinct.
Full article here-
http://www.computerandvideogames.com/article.php?id=147577

So, what 5 games would you like to see on Live Arcade or Wii Console. Dosn't matter if they are announced or not. As long as they are pre- PS2 games.

Mine would be
1- Perfect Dark - N64
2- Resident Evil 1-3 - PS1 & N64
3- Dino Crisis 2 - PS1
4- Turok 2 - N64 (I'm still after the PC version of this)
5- Furture Cop LAPD - PS1

Handheld Gimics? [Oct. 13th, 2006|08:22 pm]

Hi dudes, dudettes(?)

Anyway. I always thought that handheld stuff like 'rival radar' and that walk mode thing on nintendogs (I never played it) where you get an alert when another DS was detacted was just some kind of gimic, but I was sitting in college playing Mario Kart and a load of people came in all with DS's and soon enough we had a 5 way LAN going with total strangers and having fun. If I wasn't playing a game at the time I don't think we would have ever met, but I'm still sceptical about how many people have a DS on them all the time. What do you think?
