Got Destiny for the PS3 and it required several updates, first one being 8 gig. It got halfway through installing that one and the froze. The console would not respond to any input. A third of our data allowance right down the swanny. Aaaaaarghh!!!
Getting a late Xmas pressie from my wife. It's not a video game but an updated retro board game. Escape From Colditz 75th Anniversary Edition. I already have the original 70s edition from my childhood all complete, but the new edition looks irresistable.
Ordered my final game for this year, and it looks to be a good one, Rebooteroids for the Atari Jaguar. Imagine some elements of Asteroids, Space Duel and Super Stardust all mashed into one. Can't wait. :)
I agree that the community page is almost unusable. I imagine other users must feel the same because there is often posts that are 3 days old still on it and it never used to be like that. I can only assume that due to the slow loading, people have been put off bothering to use this page.
Well, it's been a while coming, but after looking through my games over the last few weeks, I am totally satisfied with what I have and have decided that I'm not collecting any more. Will still buy the odd game that I want to play.
There are some shmups which are better on the PS1, for Dodopachi on the the Saturn the graphics get pixely on the explosions. There is some slowdown but the arcade had a little bit too. There are some parts better on the Saturn such as having a tate mode and two players able to have different ships. Plus, it is cheaper. In the end, both versions are worth playing.
There's one right at the east end of the main shopping street with the big spire, 1 min walk from The North Star Hotel. It's more of a 2nd hand shop but they have a decent selection of MD, Saturn and PS1 games, the problem is that they're 2-3 times the going rate...
