I had assumed the Las Plagas that reared it's head in Resi4 was the same as what the people are infected with in Resi 5. I was wondering if there was any connections to the two games (but I guess only minor ones like you mentioned), if any plot points are tied up, like who is spreading it, have they stopped it, did Jill just make what was essentially a cameo; and is that it now that Resi 6 will be a reboot (apparantly).

I guess it's stuff I'll be able to find online at home when I get a chance though.

I think I'm going to rent Dead Space this week. i may have mentioned that already.

EDIT: The Cryengine 3 which will (apparantly) run on the PS3 and 360 looks pretty.

Just watched this video regarding GTA4 of some moronic American pundits from a while back, including the notorious Jack Thompson. Couldn't help but laugh out loud at how utterly wrong they got the plot and what's possible in the game, especially the stuff about visiting a strip club.

The Onion gets funnier and funnier.

I bought that in January and I've still not taken it out of the box and I don't know why. I think I'll play it tonight.

I haven't quite finished Resi 5 yet but whatever happened to the traditional voodoo-ness that was promised?

Went home this weekend and brought my Wii back down with me. House of the Dead: Overkill is about to get some serious attention.

Very much into Dead Space now. The plot is basically Resident Evil in space, although the atmosphere is excellent making it the scariest game I've played in ages. The setting is very well realised and the whole game's sci fi-ness is very well done. And the fact that you have to kill the baddies by aiming for their limbs rather than just unloading into the torso adds more to the game play. The closest thing to a downside so far are the fairly over familiar story and the introduction of the dreaded monster that can't be killed but these are just minor complaints.

So far very good.

Glad you're enjoying it. Apparently there's a prequel on the way, though annoyingly it appears to be a wii exclusive.

I really can't afford to be buying any more consoles.

New Zelda on the DS: Spirit Tracks.

You get to ride in a choo-choo and everything! I enjoyed Phantom Hourglass - despite that returning to the temple the whole time mechanic - so another DS adventure is good news.

Actually been playing my DS a lot recently. Played Flower, Sun and Rain, an incredibly quirky detective game with bizarre game mechanics and hilarious dialogue, but that's what you'd expect from Suda 51, he of No More Heroes and Killer 7. Finished Professor Layton a while back which was really addictive and put together with great care and affection. Currently working through The World Ends With You, which is one of the most innovative and stylish RPGs in a long time, and Bangai-O Spirits which is a nutty but entertaining puzzly/platforming/shooter from Treasure that defies explanation (as you might have gathered) and takes a bit of getting used to (in terms of controls and not dying within seconds of starting a level), but it's a hoot once you do and has a thorough level creating mode too.

Hah, Takeshi Kitano is awesome. He made a game for the Famicom that was a massive pisstake, it sounds hilarious.
Clicky
Main article here

QUOTE
Takeshi's Challenge followed a salaryman as he beat up yakuza, played pachinko and divorced his wife. Selling around 800,000 copies, it was anything by typical. The title screen read: "This game is made by a man who hates videogames."

The game did things like having players sing into the mic on the original Famicom controller for an hour. Doing this successfully causes everyone in the bar to attack you. In another part, players must hold down the select button for hours.

The final boss takes 20,000 hits to defeat. After defeating him, Takeshi appears on screen saying that the game isn't very good.

It gets better. After this Takeshi dispenses with all metaphor and has you literally sit and do nothing in front of your TV for, wait for it, four hours before you can progress to the next level. No cheating though: to ensure you really are sat in front of your warming Famicom and not off sleeping to pass the time, the game requires you hold down the íselectí button for the full duration.


Brilliant.

If I trade in all my X360 games I should be able to afford a Wii with House Of The Dead: Overkill and this Mad World thing.

Does anyone reckon it'd be worth it? I'm just sick of shooting things in the face, I want games to be fun again.

I know that The House Of The Dead isn't exactly a good choice when I'm bored of shooting things on the face but hey, it's Nintendo ffs.

A new Wii-based Final Fantasy game has made me a little bit wet to be honest, let's hope it's more 9 than Crystal Chronicles.

Well, Sega, really. It's great fun, though, with the replayability compensating for the painfully short lifespan...
