Wall jump is really hard in that game...I can never do it when I want to. I think I know which part you're talking about and it took me a good 3-4 hours of trying it before I got it. Old games like that just require a lot of dexterity

I could easily load my state again,but i did a lot of stuff before getting stuck in there.

Just watched the trailer for the new Oblivion game coming out in November 2011, it looks amazing!


RE: The Gaming Thread - jamiebb - 2011-03-16 13:18:38

Brilliant game, never got past that big safe though, had to DL a saved game :/
Busy playing King's Quest 8 -Old $ko0l 3D!! pretty sluggish though.


RE: The Gaming Thread - murray888 - 2011-03-16 13:48:43

Kings Quest V was so bloody good


RE: The Gaming Thread - noexitghetto - 2011-06-07 23:19:57

Wanted to resurrect this thread:


Looks amazing, never got to play the first one (Demon's Souls) because it was a PS3 exclusive, but it heard it was very very good and still remains one of the top games I want to play.


RE: The Gaming Thread - AndreDamagE - 2011-06-08 01:09:25

i feel you 100% man


RE: The Gaming Thread - SuperMaz - 2011-06-08 01:15:37

Can't wait for new FIFA, COD and Batman: Arkham City. Would love a copy of LA Noire too, just don't have the time or money at the moment.

Best use of music in a videogame trailer since... well, the last Assassin's Creed trailer.

Love Woodkid.

Ha, I think I remember that part. Ridiculous that some old games used to be that tricky. Super Metroid is quite possibly my favourite game ever though.

Currently playing Halo Reach again, with a bit of Infamous on PS3 as well. Both are distracting me from production, which is not a good thing.

Ya man Ezio's looks like a medieval Solid Snake. Beautifully rendered as well and great animations, love the head bobbles after each hit. Such a good year to be a nerd. Great music and great videogames. From September - December the outdoors will not be seen!


RE: The Gaming Thread - Tears For Beers - 2011-06-08 16:11:03

Anyone else been watching the E3 conferences? I've been watching the PS3 one from yesterday. Bioshock Infinite looks insane, as does Unchartered 3.

Also the Mass Effect 3 demo with voice recognition could be either awesome or annoying.


RE: The Gaming Thread - Guy (Boratto?) - 2011-06-08 17:39:08

just want FM12 to come out so I can come to terms with West Ham's relegation by getting them playing champions league football in the near future (in my imagination)


RE: The Gaming Thread - jamiebb - 2011-06-08 20:19:50

Just thinking of the amount of time I'm gonna spend playing Gears of War 3 brings a tear of joy to my eye.

Well I dun know bout you but if the Beta was any indication of how long I will be spending with this game, my guess will be many many many hours upon hours upon days upon weeks of holding A, while at the same time being equally stupid and annoying the people who take the game way too seriously.


RE: The Gaming Thread - Evangelink - 2011-09-11 16:57:49

Anyone else pick up Dead Island? Loving it so far. Reminds me of Far Cry 2, but with zombies.


RE: The Gaming Thread - Dobbo - 2011-09-11 17:33:28

Been emulating Pokemon Red for the past month or so tbh. lol

That's cos my PS3's drive blew up though.


RE: The Gaming Thread - Attack Yourself! - 2011-09-11 18:46:17

Been playing a lot of Skate 1 on the PS3 recently. Really stuck on the X Games megaramp bit. It's proper solid.

RE: The Gaming Thread - Evangelink - 2011-09-11 19:18:34
