Re: The Console War

I'd say the aiming was a degree more difficult, however, given that the instantaneous speed someone could move at was much higher, and of course the lack of a crosshair.

Assuming you don't play...

Re: The Console War

The ability to just look around is the most useful thing, although moreso in Perfect Dark as the levels are less flat.

Works pretty well in Goldeneye, if you set it to the 1.2 controls rather than 1.1.

Re: Best Sci-Fi Movie

I would say that the directors cut of Aliens, like the directors cut of all Cameron films, is much much more interesting if you have seen the film a few times previous. The pacing is much worse, but...

I always neg rep anonymously, because if I have something to say about a post I do it where everyone can see it.

Re: If you could only listen to artists starting with one letter of the alphabet

Of Nick Cave's stuff, I generally prefer more melodic things like No More Shall We Part, or Murder Ballads, to the more Grinderman/Birthday Party direction.

If you think the Kaiser Chiefs are an example of a terrible band, then god knows you haven't experienced much music. Try listening to, say, the Butthole Surfers or a similarly terrible group.

If people live longer, there's a decent chance they'd have fewer children anyway, assuming they remain fertile.

Re: Best Sci-Fi Movie

Re: First Person shooters with a decent storyline.

Alien Vs Predator is good, although it's not so much for the plot as for the sense of being in the film Aliens.

NOLF1 and 2 are pretty essential, there's very mild RPG elements but it's very mild....
