Nintendo DS Reccomendations

[color=darkblue]Hey People, I picked up a Nintendo DS last month and I've bought loads of games to keep me busy. Currently playing Professor Layton and I'm loving it! The puzzles are wrecking my mind, but to solve it comes great joy!

I also got Final Fantasy III, it too looks fun, but I could only focus on one game at a time when it comes the DS.

What games do you suggest I look out in the future?

Other games I've bought/ordered;

Castlevania - Dawn of Sorrow & Portrait of Ruin
Phoenix Wright - Ace Attorney & Justice For All
Hotel Dusk Room 215
Pokemon Diamond
Phantom Hour Glass
Mario & Sonic at Olypmics
Final Fantasy CC: Ring of Fates
Final Fantasy T A2: Grimoire of the Rift
Final Fantasy IV
The World Ends with You[/color]   read

Eastern Condors finally gets a commentary track

Eastern Condors finally gets a commentary track



The guys over at Podcast on Fire have just released their very first Audio Commentary. Hopefully the first amongst many, the team of Stewart Sutherland (that's me!), Kenneth Brorsson and Mike Banner chose the Sammo Hung Vietnam War flick Eastern Condors as their first victim. The track was recorded using Hong Kong Legends R2 DVD as their template. So if you’ve been itching for a Commentary, you can download it for free over are Podcast on Fire.com. post link... or you could download it via our iTunes.

We've just finished recording our 21st Show, I don't want to spam our weekly shows, but this is special this is our first Audio Commentary!   read

Virtual Console

Bought my Wii yesterday, got Wii Sports.

One of the main reasons I bought it was to get into the Virtual Console, being a fan of RetroForce they have some great suggestions each week etc.

But what games do you think are most worth their money, i bought Mario 64 and I forgot how much I hated the camera angles in it!

So is Breath of Fire 2 any good? I love RPG's any of the old Zeldas worth getting?

Suggestions would be awesome.

I still have 4000 Wii Points to spend lol   read

Curse you Bomberman

My biggest weakness with my X-Box 360 is buying the arcade games. I foolishly bought Bomberman LIVE. Then playing I notice - I'm terrible at the game! I'm bloody horrible, I can't play it, I've never won. Not online or on Single Player. I can't believe I spent credit on buying. I should have really downloaded the trail and pissed about with that, but no I'm a idiot.

I just remember the good old days of playing Bomberman on the original Game Boy, being a awfully faint memory, surely I was better at it then.

Since that I completely ignored the game until a evening where I catched with my mate on XBL, he complained that the Drive to his X-Box was fucked. So He could only play the games stored on his Hard Drive.

We give Bomberman one more try, going online we done a match together with a third bloke, that third bloke hammered us with considerable easy. I continually rant "Why did I waste money on this fucking game!!". Even with the Destrucoid Bomberman guy coming out, I was like - Oh I need to get it. But No!! I can't.

It's not as bad with other games; Sonic was fun, still to complete it. Same goes for Streets of Rage 2.

I think I need some restraint. *inhale* *exhale*.

Yeah that's my rant over with.

Do any of you guys have similar problems where you buy games on live and think "aww fuck I wish tried the trail"   read

Chow for now!

Just finished playing Stranglehold for the past two hours. The game is fun as well as fast and furious! I struggled to think what to do when I saw several streams of bullets flying towards me, so some quick dodging and diving with the great help from Tequila Time.

I've only completed the first two levels and I'm packing 3 achievements so far. The suprisingly easy acheivement is the "Meet John Woo", go to unlock shop, *BAM!* 5G's.

The only thing I couldn't do, I couldn't play the multiplayer, I tried hosting - no-one joined, Quick Match - No Connection and Custom Match, no matches found. Very very Gay, this better sort itself out soon! I want to get my game on! Whip several types of ass as John Woo! John Woo baby!   read

Which do I get??? (Smackdown vs. COD4 vs. A.Creed)

After my last post, I thought I better post a game related post before I get my balls chewed out.

Browsing HMV today, I looked over at the "Coming Soon" for 360. Ignoring Halo, I noticed Smackdown vs. RAW 2008, Assassins Creed, Kane & Lynch and Call of Duty 4 - ALL COME OUT ON THE SAME DAY!

Whole crap which do I buy? i'm not fussy for Kane and Lynch, I'll rent it.

But now it's a triple threat over which game do I buy? I want to buy all 3, I buy Smackdown vs. RAW each year, because I love GM Mode and I follow the wrestling (obviously), I loved the look of Assassin's Creed, it was as if Prince of Persia and Hitman made a baby and what a baby it is. Call of Duty 4 looks great, I played/completed Call of Duty 2 and I recent got Call of Duty 3 in August, not completed yet more important things have happened; Gears of War online (achievement whoring), Sonic, Texas Hold'em and LOTR: BM 2.

So I'm thinking do I splash out 120 and buy all three? Part of me says yes, I have plenty of money lol wait, i shouldn't say that. No wait I should *gush*

Smackdown takes top priority for me. I could just hint COD4 and AC as x-mas presents along with a Xbox Live Gold Card. Although I still do have two free months given to me from X-Box after my poor wee console died.

I'll let this debate rest for now, but I do want to mention the game of Texas Hold'em on XBLA tonight, some guy talked through the whole match "Thanks for the chips", "Worest High Stacker ever", "Can't believe you played pocket 9's", out of the 8 players we ended up in the final three. I was chip leader, he kept raising $1,000 each hand. It got to a point where i was pissed off with this bloke and slapped the mute button on him. Luckily a pair of pocket Kings, the river played out as; 5 hearts, King of Spades (do we need to know more), yes I put his pocket Jacks to shame and it felt great :-D

This game had been playing for over a hour now, i told the bloke my time is up, we played all in and the better man won, but i got $9,500 for my troubles.

Good Night.   read
