    Keith works for Xbox/Microsoft Ireland, and he has l337 advance lists of upcoming deals. Maybe they decided to pass on Battlefield, and edited it out? (or added it in!)

    Ah OK. :)
    Also, new MajorNelson site looks awful

    How egotistical do you have to be to put pictures of yourself doing stupid poses at the top of your site? *cringe*

    He's an annoying character anyway. But, when the main Xbox website (other than xbox.com) is bland, with a crap logo design, that has me worried. I don't ever want to visit that site again!

    Ah I don't mind Larry himself.... I listen to his podcast every Monday morning - seems like a pretty likeable guy.

    And if management saw this thread, he would be sacked pretty quickly ;)

    Why? He doesn't leak info, he just said that he'll post them on Monday mornings, before Major announces them

    i'm picking it up later

    Did you get it?

    Its not bad, have played a few ranked matches, I am enjoying it, its kept moving at a nice pace thankfully.

    Tonees of people playing that aint got a clue of poker, normally ends up with just 2 left at the table after a few mins for a good heads up match.

    We should try organize a Boards game some evening for the craic.


  • Administrators, Computer Games Moderators, Entertainment Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 54,363 Admin ✭✭✭✭✭ Mr E


    Yeah I'd be on for a boards game of this.

    I played 2 ranked games last night and won both. Pretty much went as you said - 8 players to heads up in less than 1½ levels, and the headsup went on for 20-30 mins on both. :)

    Its a fun game, and the experience thing is a good hook to keep you playing.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,618 Mr Freeze


    Ya, I have played 3 ranked matches now, I went out 1st in one. A dumb all in call, just getting used to the controls, Y,Y all in, oops! Won the other 2, think I will be playing mainly online, not a fan of single player poker games.

    The live games could be good too.

    Game must have started, there doesn't seem to be buy in's once it starts.

    Loads of All In's early, but the crappy players are normally gone after 5 mins anyways.

    Leaving the good players with double and triple chipstacks. :)

    True, if you knock them out.

    One lad got a triple knock out last night, and I ended up heads against him them, outchipped 5 to 1 nearly. The blinds were still 5 and 10. Had to just wait for a good hand and try double up. Managed to win, but it was 30 mins easily. It was a dirty win on the last card too to add insult to injury for him.

    True! I did jump the gun there by telling you Battlefield is the following weeks deal after Sonic.

    Anyway I wont be around long as I'm moving on from 8th April.
    Wasn't much help since I've only really started updating this thread!
    It probably would of got me sacked!

    It was hard to pull away from Xbox but it had to be done for my own sake. Too much gaming is bad for you :) Some will object I know!

    Sonic 4 : episode 1 this week for 800 points.

    Anyone get it already? 800 seems for me to be what it should have been in the 1st place and not much of a bargain :(

    Highly dissapointed with the lack of Pyschonauts on that list :mad:


  • Registered Users Posts: 22,913 ✭✭✭✭ ShadowHearth


    Not impressed with this weeks deals... Sonic is a rip off. Just get that sega collection with all sonic games for 10 quid...


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,648 ✭✭✭ Wolverine359


    Just wondering if I should pick up Black for 800pts, anyone played it, is it worth it? Or Burnout 3 even? Have halo, gta and fable already. Edit: Plus I got the two Max Paynes during the 600 point deal last time.

    I really enjoyed black, just a fun shooter. can't go wrong with burnout either, i actually preferred the older ones to paradise.

    Thanks, I might go for them so. I like the idea of having games on the harddrive, gives me something to do with all the space, and not having to change discs is so handy. :)

    From what I gathered it will. They gamer pics are already available for download under "Strania". It's an instant buy for me.
