But it's for the Wii.

You know they make them for the Wii, right?
You're breaking my heart, asswipe.

Would making me cry force Xbox to make a gun controller?
Because that's what you two seem to think!

Rock Band: Proof that the guys who made Guitar Hero first can still make Guitar Hero best. And a helluva fun drumming game to boot.

I couldn't find anything on the official sites or even eBAY..
Odd that there isn't one..

Indeed.
I've only played up to Damascus..
The first time you see it is simply incredible..


Recents:

Final Fantasy Tactics (PSP) - Still awesome after 10 years, new additions are pretty sweet. Balthier kicks ass!

Wipeout Pure (PSP) - Second only to Wipeout 2097 in the series. Awesome.

Bad news is that my PC died and the only thing available at the moment is a bloody mac... :(

There's no gun. That said there are no gun games so there'd be little point.

Just got the new update for GRAW 2. Some idiots have attempted to compare GRAW with COD4. That's a poor comparison. Like comparing West Country Mature Chedder with Leerdammer. Different cheeses see, butty.

GRAW is a tactical shooter. 3rd person. Expansive maps. More intelligent AI and 42 Co-operative Multiplayer maps with a far better team play mode where you're actually encouraged to speak with your team mates. CODS even in team modes you see squabbling over kills, unpunished (largely) teamkilling, and it's quick and arcady. I love them both equally but to compare them and put yourself in an "either or" dispute is just simply idiocy.

Just downloaded Road America for Forza 2. Not too bad. Still love this game. The New Gran Turismo is not as good as is hyped and geared towards the simpleton a little. Forza (as long as you play with the assists all off) is quite incredible. Tough as a bastard but simply rewarding as hell when you finally crack the nut. Gran Turismo beats this on looks, but only because the aliasing is a little sluggish. Who gives a fuck about that. I still play Super Aleste.

New Mario Brothers on the DS. Got it for my daughter. Played about ten levels and also had a blast playing versus, which was extremely satisfying. Seems to be another gem.

Phantom Hourglass is coming back early next week. Look forward to offering a mini review.

Played Euro 2008 Xbox. Now Fifa 2008 is currently the best football offering on the 360, and Pro Evolution has lost it's way. Euro 2008 looks awful. The models are passable, but the pitches look like wank. The game however plays like a dream. It's like EA has taken their best attributes, fluidity, presentation, licensing, precision game graphics and combined them with what once made PES great. One major issue. You only get National Teams and as far as I can tell only get to play the Euro 2008 tournament. All this for the full price tag of £49.99. Fifa will almost certainly play identically, you'll have the Euros, African nations, World Cup, Premier League, Serie A, Bundeslega, La Liga, plus the domestic cups,the UEFA Cup and Champions League all National and Club teams...for the same price. So Even though the game plays wonderfully, it's less than a tenth of content supplied in FIFA, so it's a massive rip off.

Pro Evo on Wii is an excellent concept. Now I am tempted to get the console.

No. I didn't like it. It was twice as good as PES though.

Meng, I still play PES 4 and 5 for the Xbox on my 360. The last two outings on the 360 have been inadequate to say the very least.

FIfa 08 is pretty neato.
Especially the Be A Pro mode. Wherein you only control one player. It can be spoiled by people scoring own goals, but if you get a good bunch of people playing it's good fun.

no joke, I've had Rock Band in my machine for the past several weeks, I play it daily, and I'm not playing any other game.
I haven't had a video game do this to me in years.

Darkness within - Somewhat boring, but still interesting and a bit spooky. Adventure /investigation game.

It slows down on the PS3!
:shock:

Seriously, get a corner, swing it in, it gets knocked out, machine can't cope with 20ish players onscreen.

Evolution???
:lol:

Might get the Wii version to make up for this one...

I saw both for PS2 at £1.98 today!!! Might invest (old PS2 in bedroom) for old time's sake.

New cod4 maps are pretty cool. Haven't really played extensively yet though.
