WHAT PLAY YOU?

Recommended Posts

Mashed is great from what I've played of it. All the goodness of micro machines and circuit breakers. I like the way those eliminated from each round can have their vengeance on whichever git barged them off a cliff via homing missile too.

Yeah that is awesome especially when you get a lot of tactical missiling going on. There's nothing more satisfying than dodging the missile intended to stop you from winning the race and seeing it smack into your opponent. Awesome.The game has been tweaked and updated for a US release - called Mashed: Fully Loaded. It has extra tracks and stuff. I've not played it much yet but I will do soon.If you have an Xbox: BUY IT. NOW.

Essentially it is travelling around the cities and doing missions, but there's scope to do plenty more. You can bet on horses, gamble in casinos, buy and sell cars, do minigame work as a cabbie, fireman, paramedic, valet or vigilante police officer. Kill random people, assault police officers, go on a rampage, learn to fly a plane, play pool for money. Go the gym and get your character buffed up... go to junk food establishments and make him eat until he's sick and then slob around until he gets fat. Buy some properties, assemble a posse and go and claim some gang territory for extra income. Get a girlfriend, buy nice clothes and accessories for your character, get whichever car you've stolen customised and fitted with hydraulics, nitros then enter races with it etc etc.So yeah, lots to do.

Okay. I

Star Wars Galaxies

They've just done their big 'combat upgrade' and the new expansion is out today, so of course the servers are down at the moment! Still enjoying it but it can drag on sometimes.

 

Shadow of Rome

One of the best fighting games I've ever played, varied and fun, the sneaking bits take away a little from the game but if you can learn to just play them then this game is one of the most fun gaming experiences I've ever had!

 

The Ur-Quan Masters

Remake/Upgrade of Star Control 2 (search for it) one of the best games ever for storyline/strategy gaming. Seriously you should all try this.

 

Doomdarks Revenge

yay! 1986 is still calling me back to the land of Icemark! One of, if not THE first, 1st person game where you commanded more than one character. Expansive world, and great fun if you give it a chance :) They are updating everything on the game at the moment and releasing an update, the original game "Lords of Midnight" is done, DDR is on it's way and a clever programmer has released an updated/enhanced multiplayer version which is wicked. Here's a link...

What am I talking about!

I got hold of PES4 for the PC for a tenner on Monday; since then I've updated it with the Wolf's patch (from PESfan.com), and created Sunderland as a custom team, using the proper Sunderland logo :)I've also got GT4 lying around, but I've not felt any urge to play it :(

That's because it is mind-numbingly boring. Only subscribers to Max Power ( :sleeping: ) should enjoy that game.

I'm playing that too but it's way too much like Everquest II set in space. I really don't see what was wrong with the original game. Still, I'm downloading Jump to Lightspeed and Rage Of The Wookies later, so that might be okay.

This week I have been mostly playing...

 

Wario Ware (Gamecube) and Touched (DS): Its mostly been my girlfriend hogging my TV and stealing my DS that has reignited my passion for these. Games so short they fill in 10 minute gaps perfectly, until you notice you've been playing for three hours. I have to get better at these, I can't have her being better than me at playing games.

NFL 2k5 (Xbox): I really suck at the one player mode, if you leave your assistant coach to look after your team, they all become shit and I haven't got the time to set up training schedules for all my players. However, in two player all shall fall to the mighty wrath of my Vikings.

Pop Idol (PS2): Blame the girlfriend. Moving on...

Top Spin Tennis (Xbox): I didn't give this a second look when it was first released and picked up a very cheap copy this week. Fantastic game and dare I say, more fun than VT2 on the Dreamcast.

Snatcher (Mega CD): Every couple of years I dig this out and start it from scratch and I love it. I managed to find my Lethal Enforcers light gun this time around too. With an ending that weighs in at around 40 minutes or so and a genuinely engrossing storyline, its a game that just leaps up and screams "remake me!".

 

I should get round to starting on Zoo Keeper this week, but im not sure I have the urge to start something I hear is so addictive.

I adored the original two in the series, SC3 lost the plot a bit. SC2 was fantastic, a sprawling adventure with finally something in the Sumatra big enough to kick Ur-Quan arse.I remain undefeated with the Arilou Skiff and the Mycon Podship :nerd:What format is the remake?
