It does have the advantage of not actually being tied to a current movie (as far as I know... are they remaking Highlander or something?) and thus isn't roped into a development period that MUST be over in time for the game to tie-in to the movie/DVD release. This is normally what kills other movie tie-ins, especially the otherwise mostly good ones.
While the graphics are hardly anything to shout about, especially for pre-rendered ones (though I hope they're trying to just demonstrate in-game graphics quality, in which case it isn't so bad), but the settings looked nice. Studied Pompeii for 4 years and I've been 3 times, so it'd be nice to get some gameplay set there, and as for the Scottish Highlands and 14th century Japan... those're just universally cool settings. All that and the proven quality of the voice acting (or at least the marvellous accent) makes me feel that it can only be so bad even if they do make a pig's ear of it. Which they're likely to do.
Mine came with a controller, which is the only reason I got it at that price. (cheap for ps2.) if they have any under or at £5 I can try and get one. This is the first time Ive had problems with it, apart from this its been great. Its 16 mb and its barely used any space.
Well I always buy brand new memory cards for my consoles. PS2's cost about £20 quid new, expensive I know.
Although for Gamecube, I did get 1 from australia which lets me store 2049 blocks worth of memory. Had to do it, otherwise I wouldn't be able to play Fifa 07. (Forget the official 251 and 69 memory cards) And I had the same problem with the N64 official memory cards, I'd make one save for Castlevania, one for mystical Ninja, one for Turok 2 and that'd be memory card full. My poor Fifa 99 and Mario Kart TT ghosts would have to go to waste...
Nothing interesting here my friend. Look further down. "Shoot 'em at birth, that's what I say. Yes, I agree. He is great comic maker." Madhair ftw.
Dont you have to pay for the internet channel now?
Only if you're downloading it now. And let's face it, if you didn't buy a Wii within the first year of it's life, what the [censored] else were you spending £100 on? So I don't really think anyone that IS going to Download Opera for the price of 500 Wii Points from now on has anything to moan about. Millions of people got it for free - if you didn't, tough luck, you spent £100 on something more frivolous I assume. Like Porn.
That would be silly >_> <_<. But seriously, anyone that's ever going to get a Wii that didn't get one along with the bazillion other people in the past year doesn't really have a lot to complain about when it comes to dishing out 500 Wii Points for a browser. Especially when it was never exactly a concealed fact that it was eventually going to be charged for and that if you DIDN'T want to pay for it, all you had to do was download it in the period of about 8 months where it was free to do so.
Well, I got my Wii in August and I'll be damned if I'm gonna buy x amount of points, just to spend 500 of them on a sub-par browser. And I firmly believe that anyone else who does so is wasting their money.
(Also, everything on the virtual console is horribly overpriced. Just throwing that out there...)
I haven't yet bought a Wii because I am not made of money and time after time the majority of better games over the last year were 360 games. When games finally came out that interested me, the thing was already sold out due to Nintendo's stupidity on the supply end.
I haven't brought any because I'm still undecided what to get. For every good game on one console, another will bring out another good one. Probably will get a Wii eventually, most likely when Super Smash Bro's Melee is out.
yeah, I can afford one console, and that won't be for a little bit yet. Trouble is I'm not really a fan of the Wii's controls (my room is a tip, and rather small, no way could I prat arse about with a Wii-mote and nun-chuk in it), PS3 is ridiculously expensive (so I'd not have much money to buy games with), and I'm still yet to see ANYTHING making me want to commit to a 360, in all the time it's been out. Admittedly I haven't looked all that much, but still.
If the majority of Wii games can be played with either a classic controller, or a Gamecube controller, then I'd probably pick up a Wii when money's looking better.
