    The wife entered that guitar hero warriors of rock competition where you submit your best score on one of six select songs and the best play off to win stuffs.

    Well she entered a score that she thought was crap, but it was apparently just outside the top 20 in the end. And because some people couldn't make it to the playoffs today (or got stage fright :p), she got called on friday to say she is in.

    So we're going to the shopping centre today and the top 3 get some cool stuff (new xbox 360, meet and greet with Metallica!, etc).

    I reckon she's a chance, because damn she is good - wish her luck!!

    I haven't played video games for ages. I'm going to be getting a whole bunch of games and a few new consoles soon.

    A PS3, New xbox 360 (I've had at least twenty 360's in the past - all got hardware failures!) I'm waiting for Fable 3 and the new Legend of Zelda: Skyward sword. Will buy CoD MM 2. Plan to get Black Ops too. Definitely want to get Halo: Reach. I love the simplicity, and multiplayer is so fucking fun. I might check out assassin's creed II as well.

    No luck to the lovely wife regrettably - but she was the only girl, and she was in no way humbled.

    Unfortunately, of the 6 songs that it could have been (muse, dire straits, my chemical romance, soundgarden, black sabbath, avenged sevenfold), the one she LEAST wanted it to be, black sabbath, is what it was :(

    That song is just uber repetitive and hurts to play.

    But yeah, she was in the top 10 in the end, maybe 7th or 8th. No mean feat :D

    Good on her! Give her a big hug from me!! The fact she was the only girl, makes me proud. ;)
    Bummer about the song choice though.

    feeling depressed, urge to waste money and wanting to take advantage of my staff discount before it runs out led me to buy the game Resonance of Fate for the PS3

    something different to play for a while
    J-RPG set in the future, guns in place of swords, different style of combat
    Assassin's Creed bores and frustrates the piss out of me (but want to finish it so can play the sequel) and frustrated with how hard the parts of Dead Rising 1 (again, want to play to get to the sequel) and Bayonetta (which is actually pretty fun once you get into it and lots to unlock)

    speaking of Bayonetta, does anyone who's played it know how to get the Durga (the claws) to turn into the lightning form
    can't find anywhere that says how to and is bothersome

    No idea about the claws in Bayonetta sorry :(

    As far as Resonance goes, my wife (who is a big gamer, and big fan of JRPGs) rates it as her game of the year thusfar.

    You shouldn't be disappointed.

    Medal Of Honour is a big disappointment as are a lot of games now, too much focus on the on-line content, i finished the single player campaign in under 4 hrs play time all this for $110 no way, come on game developers you have a full blu ray disc at your disposal how about using it and producing a decent length single player fps, I don't have the capability to play on line against others or do i really want to. This is starting to piss me right off, if COD Black Ops single player campaign is short i think it will be time to sell my PS3....

    Mick that bites - I feel your pain.

    Take it back if you can!! Maybe trade it for Red Dead Redemption. You won't finish that puppy in under four hours :)

    I found out how to do it

    spin the stick and press the button for either the arm or the leg and if done right, it will change

    and cool
    will play it later

    just started on Brutal Legend and it's fun to start with
    the combat is a bit of a pain when the RTS stuff comes into it
    but the soundtrack kicks arse and has lots of old school metal songs on it
    even from some proto and early metal bands people have forgotten

    People are bored of Single Player shooters and want the challenge of versing real people, personally I never play the SP part of shooters unless it has a good story like Drakes Fortune.

    Can't believe GT5 has been pushed back again. Fucking pissed about that.

    Mick, if you want challenging and long single player FPS check out some of the newer titles coming out like Dues Ex: Human Revolution, Metro 2033, Fallout 3, Borderlands or Just Cause 2. Yet Metro 2033 is only on PC and X360 at the moment.

    Most of the newer shooters are aimed at online buffs, but there is still decent games out there with a decent story and long enough gameplay to last more than a few hours.

    Check out Battlefield: Bad Company 2. It's campaign is roughly 8 - 10 hours long and the online mode is actually more exciting than Modern Warfare 2. To be honest, I don't like Modern Warfare 2. I like big open levels with tanks and a large assortment of ways to flank and get around people, MW2 didn't do much for me because all the levels are small and the combat is unbalanced.

    I thought Metro was pretty short. Also it's so linear- after playing the open-ended STALKER, linear Metro was quite a let-down. Metro is very pretty, but the other criticism is extremely limited weapons upgrades (compared with STALKER which was just extreme on weapons and variants for a post-holocaust game). I've heard Borderlands is pretty good for weapons options but I only bought that on the weekend and I want to finish what I'm playing now...

    Now I'm playing Titan Quest, and I quite like it as far as RPGs go. I've never played the Diablo ones and I was quite surprised at how good Titan Quest is compared to the old turn based RPGs. I did play Icewind Dale years ago but Titan is a fair bit more advanced than Icewind.

    I'm noting a disturbing lack of Metal Gear.

    That's a lot of games! How much time per day/week do you spend on them?

    fuck all really

    tend to OD on one game and then not play any for ages
    but if I play can play for hours on end

    with Red Dead Redemption I was racking up about 2 to 3 plus hours a day on it, mainly just exploring

    Crazy Taxi is coming to XBLA. The original 2000 Dreamcast game, but with a HD graphics and res update. Awesome! Definite purchase.
