Cool! Can I borrow GTA3 then?

You have never bought a game yourself in your entire life have you?

Funkodrom
21-11-2002, 13:13:09
Console games are too expensive.

Venom

You don't buy PC games either. You just borrow them from Shakey.

I had a very vivid dream a couple of nights back that I was in Vice-city. I Don't often shoot people in my dreams :D

I do buy some games. I bought Warcraft III recently and PES2. I'm just not willing to waste 35+ on a shite game so I like trying them first. Seems like a good plan to me!

Wussy.

Funko: So you leave the rest of us to waste our money on and review shit games.

Hey, I know you are still bitter about Total War but it's not my fault.

Venom
21-11-2002, 13:37:13
I'll be bitter about it for a long time. You could have reviewed it instead. The world would be a much better place if you had.

Funkodrom
21-11-2002, 13:38:59
I wasn't going to waste my money on that.

Venom
21-11-2002, 13:43:02
Damn you. I'm suing you for the psychological damaged it caused.

Funkodrom
21-11-2002, 13:44:52
If I had any money I could buy games!

Venom
21-11-2002, 13:49:21
You should at least have more money since you're not buying papers and tobacco anymore.

Funkodrom
21-11-2002, 13:52:00
Yeah, about 2 a week more than I had. Woooooooooooo

Venom
21-11-2002, 14:00:17
32 a month. That's almost a game.

Funkodrom
21-11-2002, 14:01:04
Own Goal.

Your months have 16 weeks in them?

Venom
21-11-2002, 14:12:38
DAMN YOU!!!! I wanted to 100-0 you for my suffereing.

Funkodrom
21-11-2002, 14:15:56
You should have killed me when you had the chance.

Venom
21-11-2002, 14:21:09
I really should have. Worst mistake I've even made. Even worse than the time I tried to sexually assault that nun.

Funkodrom
21-11-2002, 14:22:03
You should try and get out of that habit.

Venom
21-11-2002, 14:41:23
Now that's a good one.

Is this just for the Playstation or is it in other console formats too?

Should be out on the PC eventually.

Of course when it is it will look far far better than the PS version but run like a 3-legged donkey on 90% of machines.

Incidently GTA3 runs fine on my PC now I have turned of the antialiasing from the GF drivers

Just checked HMV. I cant belive I completely missed a new Mech game!

To confirm Mercenaries was the subtitle of the MW2 sequel but its also a MW4 game (which I will shortly be buying)

somehow I managed to post this reply into completely the wrong thread

Well, I got it and it rocks. The people at Game said they would give me no more than 12 for the two games I was trading in for Vice City. I argued them all the way up to 35!

Funko, I'm afraid that one of those games was GTA3.

:(

Funkodrom
26-11-2002, 11:52:18
Bah. :(

Oh well, I'll continue to wait for it to come out on Platinum then.

Everybody is trading in GTA3 for Vice City. You will be able to get a dirt cheap copy now.

That London game (Getaway) looks amazing. Most expensive game ever made according to the Independent.

I don't know my way around London, but I know I'd love shooting people in it.

Doubt it'll be much fun...you'll just spend the whole game sitting in one plac stuck in a traffic jam and then some traffic warden will give you a ticket for parking illegaly...oh and not to mention having to cough up a 5 daily fee for the priviledge!

You get to run over Ken Livingstone, though.

Interesting summation. However the Stereobloodyphonics do a lot of gigs and they are not good. :hmm:

You guessed right though. We are good :p

I would but the Purple Turtle is a sh1t hole and I fear being permanently stuck to the beer induced organic material inhabiting the floor. But I'll be sure to catch you in Bar Oz next and bring some mates down who will also enjoy heckling and practice in the art of throwing spongeous vegetables in approximate facial direction.

How much do you pay for people to clap after each song? Cheering and whistling costs extra.

BTW, do you get to shag loads of fit birds being a big rich rock band? And do you prefer a harp or a whole load of extra guitars?

Sounds good, extra points for more unwieldy vegetables.

You do get to shag loads of girls if you are in a big rich rock band.

If you are in a tiny band playing gigs in the turtle...

And fair point about the Turtle. It is a hive of scum and villainy.

I got my PS2 back from my bro and got Vice City. Remembered how much I hate the camera movement and bloody annoying attempt at manually targeting an enemy with the buttons or stick. I seem to end up nudging the stick and the crosshairs jerk either side of the guy im trying to target. V annoying. Would be cool to have some kind of slow movement mode so the crosshairs move at half speed.

Still good game but doesn't have the novelty aspect that GTA3 had for obvious reasons.

You sure do - and you don't have to be that big and that rich - just a bit more of each...:D
