    I'm headacher if anyone fancies some online gubbins!
  2. This is me! I'm always up for some Rocket League! Anyone else play it much?
  3. New people: Read this, say hi.

    Hi! I'm Dan and I'm back! I haven't posted here in quite a while so I'm looking forward to getting involved again!

    Oooh I've just started this and am enjoying it so far. Unlike the Resistance series I have actually played the first 2, in fact I had restarted the first on hard until the third came from Lovefilm. I'm a sucker for scripted sequences sometimes...

    FINALLY finished Resistance 1, I gave up for a while as it became ridiculously tedious and drawn out but I made it! I guess playing the third one first spoiled me a bit.
  6. Psychonauts on Steam

    Actually, looking at that statement again, it seems he's referring to Games on Demand rather than XBLA. I guess some of the criteria are shared though.

    Someone from Just Add Water (developers of the pc/ps3 Oddworld ports) made this rather interesting statement on Neogaf (http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=476998&page=2) recently: Seems like you have to jump through some crazy hoops to get games on XBLA, I'm guessing these 'goals' seem to vary developer to developer though which seems ridiculously unfair!

    Going back to this.... I finished Zero Mission last week and I found the last level to be an incredible example of how to put stress on the player via the feeling of being hunted .
  10. Movie/TV recommendations

    That would explain it then!
  11. Movie/TV recommendations

    Pointless fact: One of the kids from This Is England is from Derby as a few friends spotted him in the pub a few weeks back. He dresses like a scally bastard in real life too!
  12. V The Elder Scrolls

    I did make it out to be a rather cthulhu like beast didn't I?
  13. Psychonauts on Steam

    I always figured that's why Double Fine needed THQ etc for XBLA, similar reason for why games like Limbo etc got picked up by Microsoft Game Studios. Just found the original article actually, quite an interesting read, especially
  14. V The Elder Scrolls

    Uh oh. Skyrim is now in our house.
  15. Psychonauts on Steam

    Oh no, I didn't mean to imply something sinister had occurred, just that Majesco would have put it on there initially but the publishing rights would have since expired. I'm guessing Xbox Originals falls under the same guidelines as XBLA whereby you can't have a game on there that's self published?
