BTW A warning to all. Last week I received Shellshock 2: Blood Trails on rental from Lovefilm. Avoid this PoS at all costs. It's like stepping back 5 years in gaming and it's truly an awful game. I'd give it 3/10 and that would be generous.

The graphics are alot more crisp and clean than on the Mega drive as they are presented in HD (720P). Theres some excellent classics on the disc including the 3 streets of rage games and 4-5 sonic games. Think sonic 1,2,3, 3D and pinball oh and sonic and knuckles so I guess 5 then.

Would certainly recommend it if you liked the old mega drive games. Brings back some great memorys for me and well worth the £20-£25 you can pick it up for.

Some others I remember are on the disc is 2 echo the dolphin games, an alex the kidd, Alien storm, robocop VS terminator, golden axe 1,2,3 and many many more :)

you can see the full list Here

Young people these days!!! you are supposed to play games cause you enjoy them and want to get better not just cause it gets you easy gamerscore and can leave it to play itelf so you can rank up.

People like you disgust me!!!:mad::mad:

I am twice your age and been playing games since I was about 4 back on the Toshiba MSX but you probably don't know what that was.

I can play games and am good at them, I don't need to play just to get gamerscore. Mine is at 16,520.

Agreed m8, I was hooked on it. After all the crap I seen getting thrown at it for its no run and fire I think it's my fav game this year. Always been a big resident evil fan and I think this one is brilliant to. Explains alot about the story of the whole RE series which I liked to. I'll say it again brilliant game :)

Just got my BF:Heroes beta key so will probably give that a try now.

Lol Callumpy no offence intended here but I just dont get the point of all this "I've got more gamescore/trophies than you" I always have and always will play games for the fun of it and because I enjoy either the story or the online.

I never play looking to get gamescore. I just unlock what comes naturally as I go along. Tbh at the end of the days whats all them extra wasted hours trying to get massive gamescore going to get you ? Half the time its just making you do borning things that you wouldn't normally be arsed with.

Yes, sometimes i do annoying things to get some achievements, but sometimes it does actually make you play more into the game, at the moment ive been trying to get 1000 from Rainbow Six 2 and there is an achievement for 1000 kills, if that wasnt there i probably wouldnt play it as much.

And then there are some that i just cant be arsed to do like Seriously 2.0 on Gears of War 2. Kill 100,000 enemies, thats the only Gears 2 achievement i have left to get but im not going to sit there playing the brumak mission over and over like some people do.

That kind of proves my point. I play games as I enjoy them, not to collect every achievement. You are clearly playing certain games that have easy gamerscore and ones that let you cheat to get them, i.e. leaving the game to play by itself.

Yes it does make games more fun by having more reasons to play them, but I will not sit and try to claim every achievement.

I remember being addicted to that game a while back. As its curveball that what you have to try and do really (Well I did anyway) as the ball comes back to you and is about to hit your racket thing then move the racket thing lol to the left or right or any direction fast so the ball gets a curve on it as it hits your racket thing. This makes it spin in all crazy directions making it much harder for the CPU player to judge (but not really as its a program lol) Plus you get more points for curving the ball I think.

I do hope that makes sense. It did in my head Honest !

Been playing this myself - specifically the PC version. First game I've bothered playing in absolutely months and months.

It can be bought on Popcap's website for a few quid, but if you use the coupon 'Blitz1' then you can get it for about £1.50 :cool:

Very addictive game.

Like all these monsters they are hard to kill, then when you know their weak points they are dog-meat.
After the FMV of the "flying bat" escaping the lorry, run to your left to the two wooden barrels, inside are two landmines grab these and grab two more in the hut on the floor, when you come out of the hut the bat-thing will have landed and will be walking towards you and Sheva.
Get just ahead of him and then lay a mine in the center of the path, he'll walk over it causing it to explode and throwing him onto his side...nows your time to shine Luke:) fire continually into his reddish underbelly.
Depending how far you have ranked your handgun or shotgun up will decide how many times you must repeat this process, even with weak guns your not looking at more than four times, more likely three times.
Good luck.:)

I guess thats possible. Will give it a look but all my other games seem fine. Maybe its just the textures or something I dont like. I will give it another go because I was really looking forward to it to.

What do you think of the Survival mode? I think they messed it up. There is no tactic that works, you need to keep a tight group and fire in four directions, then a Tank appears and you have to scatter. Only found the Airport level remotely playable, you have one direction to defend, even then, once Molotovs run out the Tank becomes a bind.

Shame they didn't do it more like the Nazi thing at the end of World at War, allow you to make defences.

It deffo needs the option to turn specials off or at least the Tank off.

I haven't downloaded it yet but at least it doesn't cost anything. The Nazi zombies mode in COD5 is brilliant though yeah especially with the new map in the dlc pack.

Works a treat. Its had certain edits so you can play it with others like certain doors will stay open etc etc. Just done the jetski part and it auto spawns two jetski's each time so you both have one. It seems very well done tbh.

Can I ask what you are using, I installed the Synergy thing in Steam (that seems to have Coop) be damned if I can get any friends into the game. I am in HL2.

How did you get it to work?

I played with a couple but am using the one you said which is Synergy. The problem is it does not give you the server address right so heres what to do.

1. Write down your IP address.
2. Create a server and remember which port you have said to use.
3. Once server is up tell your friend to type into the console "connect" followed by your ip and the port you choose so for example it would look like this - Connect 11.22.33.44:27015
4. Enjoy playing together :)

Also your server should show in the list eventually so you could get your friend to look that way but I found it was a bit hit and miss. if you do do it this way make sure they unclick the box that says "show maps" or something like that as if its ticked it does not show any servers for some reason.

Can't get it to work, no idea why. Did the connect IP:Port in both directions, opened the port on both routers, just wont connect nor can either of us see it in the server list.

Funny thing is a complete stranger connected to my game. It all seems pretty straightforward, no idea what is going wrong.

Were are you getting your IP from ? you sure its defo the right IP. We were using the wrong IP for a while because we were using the one that the game said but that was wrong its your own IP address that you need.

Hope you can get it working because its great fun playing it co-op.

Strange. Thats how we got it working. Also your server must be showing in the browser list for someone to have connected to it. I found that sometimes mine showed up in the list and others it didnt. You wont see your own though but your friend should be able to. Sorry couldnt be more help.

There is a decent one for Garry's mod if you wana try it that way.
