Turns out that Sheva from RE5 is based on an Australian actress - though she's only providing likeness, not a voice.

Also, I love how they mention the release date as October...

Good, we haven't exactly got the highest standard of acotrs.

Well the Fragile pics are improving with time, haven't seen a bad one for awhile. Happy

Why am I busy on the days I do the updates.

GG GTAIV is a nice restart but it kind of starts fresh.  Think of it like the new GTA3 not like VC and SA.  Its like the started from the start and focused on getting the engine down for this new GTA. Its an excellent game but not as good as SA or VC. But the potential for the next games to be better is there.

You're wrong. Everyone gave it 10's. Its the best game ever made. LOL

Its not even comparable to GTA 3 because that game was revolutionary.

EDIT: Why do I keep getting "error on page" over and over?!

Me too. Error on page is so annoying.

I got to agree with EDGE here after spending another few hours on the game last night and early this morning. GTA 3 is better, even though it was revolutionary and built the engine etc. It was still funny, entertaining and well made. I just find the characters and missions on GTA IV totally boring. Not one character is endearing in the slightest, these two russian mafia brothers are just violent bores. There's a ton of useless excessive swearing and I'm not exactly oppossed to swearing in the slightest.

The one mission which has felt slightly different so far was going up the ladders and jumping across rooftops and that felt so mechanical and stiff it was yet again boring. I'm still waiting around for it to kick things up a notch and become this brilliant game I keep hearing about because I still rate Vice City and GTA3 above this. Hell, maybe even SA and I didn't even get into that game.

Actually the real revolution is Body Harvest! Why did I not buy it back than? Rockstar put in on the VC please!

Yeah I had that game. It was good and really like GTA actually. It was made by DMA design which changed names and became rockstar. The only problem was that it had a tendancy to explode your vehicle on a hill or incline and leave you as a little running man that could not make it back up the hill LOL So you had to restart. Balls man.

Edge, you said:

"Okami is definitely better on Wii"

In what ways?

Edge and GG, I definitely concede that when we compare TP and Okami, Zelda is better with keeping the player going. The only momentary exception is the beginning of TP, which is torturously slow. As to length, segmentation, and stuff like that, if I hadn't already watched the GS review of Okami, I would have been under the impression that it ends after the Orochi fight.

I haven't played the PS2 version, from what I've seen and heard the visuals are clearer and more vibrant, obviously the brushwork is faster and more intuitive and natural. But also, you can skip those annoying cutscenes. I'm on my first playthrough and have skipped a few overlong BS bits of chit chat. I don't think there is that much difference though but EDGE will proabably know more than me. Okami is weird that it does feel segmented, it's not like you finish a chapter and move on towards the end of the book. It feels like you end the book and go on the epilogue. Just weird.

This game is the greatest LOL

I picked it up for $11 perfect condition awhile back but I haven't had a chance to play it yet! For the PS2 that is. Seriously $10 or $50 for the wii version? :X

Good, now you can play it tell everyone how great it is and get them to buy it too. Happy The wii version has some exclusive missions and classes in the form of new minigames that use the wii remote pretty well, you can do trama centre style operations in biology and use IR to pin things on a map and use it as a drum in music class. You get IR aiming which is admittedly clunky. Otherwise it has veeeeeeeery slightly improved visuals over the PS2 version. Very slightly. The 360 version looks a lot better visually but the game is bugged and has to be patched online.

Man Fragile is looking better each day. Why couldn't they make TOS2 look like this? Happy

Iga I have no idea what you are smoking but I disagree with you on visuals. Firstly on N64, nintendos games came nowhere near what rare was doing. They were undisputed kings of visuals on the platform. Majora looked like ocarina with better lighting.

As to mario galaxy, when you see the planetoids in the background you are seeing blurred out, filtered versions, the detail doesn't phase in until you get close. When you see a whole planet, you are seeing basic textures with lovely lighting and a great art style. Go into first person and look, the textures are crap. It looks absolutely lovely but it's not anything as demanding as what prime 3 is putting out.

No I mean the crime bosses. But even Niko and Roman barely raise an eyebrow with me. It just doesn't compare to Ray Liottas performance in Vice city.

ANIMAL CROSSING CITY FOLK
I would like to know your thoughts on this title for those familiar with the series. I heard some chat on IGN and saw an article which is kind of dismissing the game, or saying that its visuals aren't good enough or that it looks too similar to the DS game.
I agree that the overworld in terms of the town does look like the same AC town and my immediate worry is that the game would be the same game with better visuals and that danger definitely exists. This is why I refuse to upload my DS data, i want to start this game from scratch and build up my collection again and hopefully add all the new items. My hope for this game is that there wont be a limit on expanding the rooms in your house.
Like mario kart I hope there will be tournament style DLC. Imagine getting on the bus one day after an update and ending up in  totally new area?
The city is a good idea but it looks quite small, I was hoping for something like 4 times as big. Even something as big as castle town in Twilight princess.
The new items fed through WC24 will add a ton of logevity for me though. On the visual side I do not agree with the criticisms. AC is not a game which needs advanced visuals, it's a bubbling under, mellow game with a very rigid artstyle. The game does not look like the DS game with all that lack of detail and pixellation.
Lastly apart from the city there are apparentely more areas we haven't seen yet:

I just reserved my copy of Animal Crossing: City Folk at Amazon. It'll likely be my GOTY. I'm hopelessly addicted to that series, and I honestly don't care if it isn't a big leap from the GC/DS game. As long as they make some subtle improvements here and there and add a bunch of new items to collect, then I'm happy.  However, I'm sure we haven't seen everything ACCF will offer yet; Nintendo is known for their secrets.

Retro Studios are kind of the new Rare. The ones you can count on to come out with some insane looking shit. Its too bad Rare didn't stay in the Nintendo camp because it would have been fun to see who put out the better looking games.

Nintendo sold Rare, because they were turning into an unproductive company. Think about it, on the Xbox they created only Grabbed by the Ghoullies. And Retro = the new Iguana and not Rare. They are still to small to be compared with Rare.

I remember Nintendo saying that they sold their partial ownership of Rare because Rare had only contributed to about 1% of Nintendo's overall profits.

It would have been nice if they had made a totally new town to live in, whereas this one looks awfully similar to the DS one. Or if they had just ripped the model/code from the GC version as the town and then spent all their time adding new areas to go to. One of the problems I have with AC or harvest moon for instance is that I want to go outside the gates and enjoy the world because if it's half as fun as the town area I know I'm going to love it.

Agreed. They seem to be slowly getting their shit together. They are still in a weird place for my money with a company and console known more for its hardcore shooters and sweary online games than their particular brand of cuddly filth. I think during the GC/Xbox era they just became really slow and expensive to keep. MS thought they had struck gold when they bought them, not realising they were getting bronze.

It's hard to find decent GC pics of Animal Crossing but here's what I got.

GC

Animal Crossing: City Folk Screenshot

I see a difference, but like I said it has this rigid art style like the grass and how it's made from triangles for instance. You can't **** with that and it doesn't need wow visuals, it's not that sort of game. I have no idea how IGN can call them DS graphics.

Happy The wii version has some exclusive missions and classes in the form of new minigames that use the wii remote pretty well, you can do trama centre style operations in biology and use IR to pin things on a map and use it as a drum in music class. You get IR aiming which is admittedly clunky. Otherwise it has veeeeeeeery slightly improved visuals over the PS2 version. Very slightly. The 360 version looks a lot better visually but the game is bugged and has to be patched online.

Not worth 3 or 4 times the price then! Grinning

It was released over here at a little under full retail price. There is this one classic moment though where you use the wii remotes to drum in a christmas pageant. It's probably the best moment of the game for me and might not be as fun with buttons. Still, it incorporates the controls in a really seamless and enjoyable way but it you can get the PS2 version the differences are probably not that pronounced at all.

This game has me laughing out loud every minute, it's really great and its perception thanks to jack thompson really pisses me off.
