Re: "I WILL BREAK YOU, BATMAN!!!"

So I went to see it last night. It's enjoyable and definitely worth the admission, but it's not without its problems and, in my opinion, doesn't hold a candle to TDK. To start, the complaints about Bane's voice being indistinct are well-founded; sat up by the subwoofers, he was practically unintelli...

So my computer may explode.

A bit of backstory. Two years ago, I refitted my desktop with the latest and greatest graphics card I could afford: an ASUS GTX 275. It's a good card and it's served me well since. However, when I refitted the machine I was fairly new to the whole business of choosing parts. Having spent a cool £160...

As long as the dialogue doesn't make me want to slam the scriptwriter's head in a drawer, this could in theory be okay..

Re: Sonic 4 Episode 2 Not to Come until 2012

If the Wii can't handle it, are there still hopes for an iOS version, I wonder. Especially one for my 2nd Gen iPod. Not that I'll be too cut up if there isn't, I thought the first one was horrible on all the platforms I tried it on. Still, if the second episode is at least half-decent.. a Steam rele...

Re: Sega release trailer for.. Sonic CD? What?

So I downloaded it on iOS. And it's really.. really.. good. Suffice to say, with Sega's shoddily emulated ports of S1&2, I wasn't expecting this. It's polished to a mirror shine, and the Retro Engine is the absolute dog's bollocks. Even on my (rough as old guts) second-generation iPod touch, it ran ...

Re: Sonic Generations

I have no idea what to make of this game. I can't tell if it's really good, or really bad, but I'm certainly having fun while playing it, which lends itself to the good category? Perhaps? While I will endlessly kiss Sega's ass thanks to the PC release, it's a pity that nobody checked to see if the g...

Now I don't know about you, but I've never played SMW and been interrupted by a sudden desire for a fur coat.
Admittedly that minigame is quite fun.

Re: Sonic Generations

As of E3, Nintendo didn't have plans for multiple tablet-controllers at the same time. It's not too unlikely, but again, I'd err on the side of rumor. I said this when it was first announced, but I'd bet money that the tablet-controllers for this thing are going to be expensive enough that few peop...

I'm not sure about that moustache, I don't really see it. Which may be a good sign.
Either way, that's actually pretty badass for a Sonic villain. The last I can think of was Dark Gaia who looked, well, stupid.

Does that really make a difference, especially the Steamworks part? I never understood the whole Steamworks hate.

Re: So... Portal 2

It's out.
I've completed it, with my brother. It's only about two hours long, so slightly shorter than the original Portal.
It's very, very good.

EDIT: Volume 3 of the soundtrack is also out now.

I'm a little concerned as to how there's been no more mention of the hypothetical Steam release, and there's no PC logo on any of their trailers.

I can't possibly be the only one to like this interpretation of Robotnik, can I? I'd quite like to see a gritty rebooted Sonic done with a bit of effort.

Re: Sonic Generations

The "Missions" part of that doesn't give too much fresh hope. Colours had "Missions", and they invariably sucked after the first one in any stage.
