    Mirror's Edge was fine 7 out of 10, an impressive concept but a mediocre story line with nothing in gameplay to keep you hooked.

    And comparing it to city 17 is laughable!

    As someone who put a hundred or so hours into Fallout 3 (Without touching all the DLC I have for it) I am unbelievably pumped for New Vegas.

    COD doesn't count menu times or idling times towards that total. It only counts actually "in a lobby and playing the game" time

    As does SF my friend :D I think you underestimate the time I've spent beating a training dummy!

    I'll have to check when I get home but I'm sure I've more that that spent on COD, between my two accounts.

    Um...no? I just appreciate good games. Also, the video cable for my 360 is broken.


    But news!
    360 250GB "Slim" hands-on, full details. Bonus: it's sexy
    By Ben Kuchera | Last updated about 2 hours ago

    At an event after the Microsoft keynote, members of the press were presented with tables complete with wrapped presents. The idea? We all unwrap the new Xbox 360 250GB (the official name) and explore what makes the new system so special. Here's what is inside the package.

    First off, it comes packed with a smaller, but still proprietary, 250GB hard drive. WiFi is built in, using the 802.11n standard. Two USB ports are hidden behind a flap on the front of the device, with three extra USB ports in the back for a total of five. The power supply is much smaller, and we were told the system uses much less power. To make sure no one mixes and matches the power supplies, there is an all-new adaptor for the 360 250GB.


    The 360 250GB in all its glory. Note my busted iPhone

    Underneath the side vent lies the new, smaller 250GB hard drive

    The rear of the system. Note the new port for the power supply

    More detail of the ports. A total of five USB ports, powered connector for the Kinect, and a dedicated audio line... no more breakout boxes!
    I put in a copy of Alan Wake and turned it on using the new touch-buttons... very similar to what you get with the PlayStation 3. The system was on, but it made almost no noise. The game loaded. Silent. I'm used to using my 360 in my home office hooked up to a computer monitor, where it sounds something like a jet taking off. This is bliss.

    A new AV port in the back also cuts down on the wires when the Kinect is involved. Plug the Kinect into that port, plug the 360 into the wall, and you're all set up. Owners of the now-classic 360 will have to plug the Kinect into the wall using a separate outlet.

    We were told the system has taken years to develop, and it shows: it's a thoughtful, refined system, and at $300 it's a good value. This is the 360 you've always wanted.

    Oh, except for the HDMI cable. It still doesn't come with one of those.

    An Xbox that will actually work! Even if it is 5 years late...

    So...new Zelda, eh?


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,445 ✭✭✭Jako8


    Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

    Should be fun. :) It's the first Legend of Zelda game to be specifically designed for the Wii since Twilight Princess was just ported from the Gamecube.

    Nintendo are so creative and original. That said I'll still get the game.

    Did Nintendo announce anything else? I've pretty much stopped playing computer games the past couple of years but I'd love to see a new F-Zero game. A new Fire Emblem or revamp of the Advance Wars series would be nice too.

    Epic Mickey which is a new Mickey Mouse game in which they hope to take Mickey in a whole new direction. Looks pretty cool. Also, Donkey Kong and a Kirby game.

    The big announcement was the new 3DS and a new Kid Icarus game for it.

    A new kid icarus game? That's not the highlight.

    I'm feeling fairly pessimistic about that one. Something tells me it won't be much better than average.
