Re: 16 games?
5 or so last year plus a couple of free ones
That said paid over £30 for 4 of them, day of release for a couple.
At 9p an hour for just me for the last Killzone including DLC.
There were a lot of good games last year so rationed myself, still haven't played Portal 2 yet it sits there waiting - still dealing with Glados on first game so bit embarrassed to start.
But then I played more games than before, Platinumed both Uncharteds before the PSN downtime, completed a few SP games during it, afterwards Platted Infamous (free game), multiplayered Killzone 3, enjoyed Resistance 3 but not the MP, blasted through Rage, Platted Uncharted 3 within a week of buying it.
Since January been concentrating on KZ as I want to hit top rank.
You can fill a year with not many games and still have a lot of fun. My backlog is big enough and one of my sons has just bought Skyrim and says I can play that.
As to MY game of year - too dificult for me to choose, 3 stand out for different reasons. Uncharted 3 was fantastic, Resistance 3 has a brilliant atmosphere, and Killzone 3 multiplayer is great fun and motion control done right, I laughed out loud when getting a 5 killstreak with a sniper rifle while eating a lolly (holding it in shooting hand, with finger wrapped around T)
last year was a great gaming year, and look how much entertainment can come from one shiny disc, especially when there are more than one person to play, online coop is fun with UC3, my daughter even plays it - but gets annoyed if not Elena, both boys play KZ3 online as well. Still can't work out why a console gets more use playing films & streaming than gaming, ours is 90% 5% 5% with 90% at a low guess, BBC, ITV, 4OD players and Blu ray both around 5%.

BTW married her!
Re: The free stuff
Yes I have as well, also got me out of trouble when my XP SP3 CD got broken.
Download it and use it with my own licence key.
Still up on Demon
Perhaps I should ask BT for my Migration Access Codes
You watch Adverts?
I don't, I pay about £140 though, and may be one programme a day I want to watch.
When you read all of these posts you think - at least we have the BBC. There may be a load of crud, but there still is the odd gem.
We have some fantastic documentries, nature (David Attenborough) programmes, sitcoms (recently Not Going Out), reasonable news, just need to look past Deadenders.
Other sides - PVRs make short shrift of adverts.
Yours must be faulty
Mine shows the odd documentry and a lot of video games
Who cares who was first?
I reckon that's Barry Shitpeas AICMFP.
Wii and Move developed independantly, different techniques, similar results.
Eyetoy was first but was not very powerful, OK for Lemmings. Natal has depth perception, PS Eye doesn't on its own but does with Move (the glowing ball). Move & Wiiiii have buttons.
I thought at first Smart Glass stupid idea - very few Windows phones, but then Android & IOS mentioned, good idea. As to the idea - first one I have seen was Dreamcast VMU, I have connected PSP to PS3 but not as a rear view mirror (supposedly on GT5).
WiiU is not a ripoff but again independantly done like the PSV PS3 link.
They all have ideas - there is little ripping off, just be thankfull the 3 main games companies are working to improve.
I am not a fan of paying for online, but people who want to - why should they not do if they want to.
Re: Big Yin
Well I had an operation last year so was in a week.
Nurses were good, but I did not appreciate being woken at 3 in the morning for a blood pressure check and being in agony as the pain killers had worn off - needed morphine to get back to sleep. (few hours after op).
My biggest complaint was lack of communication between staff, and me being trial and error.
See my other post about why I should NOT pay a levy on blank media.
Why should my friends band subsidise say Elton John?
Re: Levies - if they were on blank media
I am NOT paying any levies on blank media, why should I?
Why should I pay someone else when I burn a copy of a home video?
Why should any music artists get ANY MONEY WHATSOEVER when I sell a DVD of a friends band, EXCEPT MY FRIENDS?
Backup CDs ect
Re: No fine - just sackings
Actually you are right, but to be honest I feel that the chief executive of a hospital should not be the huge earners.
The people who operate on you and make you better should be the highest paid people in a hospital NOT a beaurocrat
Re: Small thought...
And we end up with the same tune on many different TV programmes.
No fine - just sackings
Get rid of chief exec - too highly paid - only people I feel who should be on high wages in hospitals should have years of training and get called Doctor (OK I know about consultants).
Also whoever authorised the useless contracter.
As to fining NHS - just no OK.
Re: I wiped an accounts system once
Accidentaly went into the clear system option, so hurredly clicked no.
HOWEVER Pegasus Opera reverses the yes and no - so I wiped the system.
Good use for backup tapes!
( I was testing invoice posting from our software)
Re: Man up
Why I already am.
And I wipe out the DS3 using losers on Killzone 3*
* positive KDR, often top of my team, often winning team, in top few thousand world wide, win games when 4 vs me, I play tactician markman and engineer.
So I play a FPS using motion controls, large numbers of us do and a lot of us are very good. You do realise we actually have to aim - you know point at the screen to shoot!
I know at least one sharpshooter user, he is pretty good as well, top couple 100 in the world.
Finally it takes skill to use the sniper rifle like this, you actually have to hold your breath when aiming, stil got 30 streak using it though!
So you see a shooter game with this logo on - and it doesn't support it during campaign this is serious misselling.
Re: I'm sticking to sales
I have really cut back on buying - a variety of reasons.
Locked piracy warnings
Tend to buy interesting films, non Hollywood films and Anime now, most of the classics I have on DVD when I used to buy a lot more, and very few are upgraded - only Blade Runner - very good BD.
So I buy a few BDs a year. But I do prefer them with game data on now, Choice between the latest say Adam Sandler film or an Uncharted game - hello Drake.
Same reason I have kept away from it.
Not allowed to bring in food or drink, local event for the torches - no food, no drink, no umbrellas, no pushchairs, no bags, get there 3 hours before ect ect..
And they kept putting it on the coach rather than running with it.
What is interesting is that adverts not by a sponsor are completely banned near a venue. Includes small businesses.
Most ridiculous is that machinery used during the construction - pictures have the company names removed as well as brand names. Yet I found some pictures of various contruction companies and CAT excavators.
Quantity of data > HDD
Blu Ray 50GB in PS3 compatible
HDD 320GB PS3
Imagine a fan of Uncharted Killzone Resistance and Gran Turismo. Sizes are estimated
22 25 50
22 18 30
Then add in one or two more series - say Ratchet & Clank or Motorstorm - and of course DLC - full hard drive
Prologue left off
BTW We have all of the above except Prologue and All 4 One
Re: NEWTON METRES
This is what torque wrenches use
Wheel bolts 110Nm
I do not use cm, but will use cm3
Be careful with PS3 version - the cover lies
Saw it in Tescos - mentions Move support, now when you see a Move supported shooter, you think Killzone, SOCOM, Resistance, & MAG, full usability during campaign and multiplayer, the only thing stopping me putting into the shopping trolley was the navigation controller missing from the cover, this sent up a warning.
When I got home I investigated - only available for gunsmith mode!!!!
What is the point in advertising a game as Move compatible and not actually using the thing?
As far as I am concerned it can stay with a lot of other shooters - on the shelf!
BTW some of us strugle to aim quickly with sticks and like motion type control like a mouse, or a move controller.
Re: Power outputs
Most high powers recorded by steam locos is not at full speed, but at full valve gear open and medium speeds.
This was the technique the S&D drivers developed to leave behind banking engines, yes a passenger train with large loco can accellerate quicker than a light little engine. Read reports of 3000 EDHP
Bearing issues were sorted very soon after.
The NRM has even stated that if the world speed record got taken, they would restore Mallard and go for a higher speed.
If it wasn't for speed restrictions Mallard could have hit 130mph
A4s could easily cruise at a ton. And the German run was a lot lighter.
Re: I'm going to wait....
If you're a hipster with big honkin' black frames out of the '60s, you're probably out of luck. Luckily, you're a hipster, so I won't care.
Aghhh NHS glasses - they were horrid then and are still horrid now.
(thin metal frames here)
