    Thanks Olly, will do! I think GTA IV will keep me going for a while though - I've been a PC gamer for many many years, but this is my first time on a gamepad, and from my many visits to the hospital I think it's going to take me a while to learn to aim with a joystick rather than a mouse

    GTA will keep you going ages.

    Don't forget the new Saints Row which is out soon (August I believe)

    The first Saints Row did everything GTA irritated with you, and better.

    I've been reliably informed the sequal is better than GTA

    My 2nd Ring of Death was caused by my little one turning my PS3 & 360 ontogether and closing the cabinet, of course my women didnt notice and my 360 of course, died.

    Thats a bit like putting two servers back to back.

    Although I have it on good authority Google rank #6 for a game server related search phrase do it and get away with it!

    I hope so! If I get bored I've also got alone in the dark - I've heard it's a bit rubbish, but there's fire, and it was less than half price, so I'll give it a chance. I'm sure it's better than some of the rubbish I've bought in the past.

    I've read good things about it - will keep an eye on it!

    The serious list at the moment is mostly things I missed, like gears of war, rainbow six, assassins creed, halo or call of duty. Not a lot of variety there though, so should probably get something racey or sporty at some point.

    However, my girlfriend enjoys those button-mashing fighting games I used to endure for hours at friends' houses (losing match after match to secret combos), so I think I'd better get one of those soon, like dead or alive. Still, I look on it as a gateway game - once she's hooked, I'll move her on to the hard stuff

    Rainbow Six, Vegas Two. AMAZING. I've been playing that tonight.

    Assasins's Creed. While monotonous, still good fun.

    Halo 3 is simply amazing.

    COD4 is the best game I've ever played....

    Sad you are missing out on Metal Gear Solid 4, which I've just ordered. It's supposed to be immense.

    Depends on the google search! I'm guessing he didn't mean 6th for 'clan host'

    But damn, on the front page for every game hosting-related search, even 8th for 'uk gaming' - that's some quality SEO there.

    Thanks to another thread in the hosting section and the guys helping me with my perl script, you have about 10,000 different phrases to choose from :P

    For this, I think you need to get the new Soul Calibur IV when it comes out.

    Dead or Alive 2 will seem very slow after you play a Soul Calibur game though!

    Interesting, I'd just noticed that was coming out! Will add it to the list!

    As an aside, I saw game had a 2 for 30 on gears of war and rainbow six last week - but by the time I got some free time to go in, the offer had gone. Woe!

    Has anyone had any experience of the second hand games you can get in there? I'm historically a bit of a snob when it comes to these things - are they good quality, or do you find you get home with a scratched hairy disk in a box covered in pizza toppings and nasal discharge?

    rainbow six vegas 2 is brilliant.

    Gears of war wasnt for me.

    With regards to second hand, make sure you check them and test them right after buying.

    I made the mistake of leaving it too late and not being able to get a refund, ******s!

    Ick! Might stick to first hand then, at least for big games.

    I think GTA will keep me occupied for quite a while yet though. I find most of my time is spent playing with the environment, or stocking up and finding somewhere defensible to wait for the police to arrive...

    Alone in the Dark is rubbish though, or at least not my kind of game. Managed to play it for about 30 minutes - it's mostly: cutscene, set fire to something in what's supposed to be "wow, look at how creative you can get", but actually feels really contrived. Then it's another cutscene, then "oh crap I died because something unpredictably fell on my head". The game is full of things that kill you with no warning; they seem to think I'll enjoy re-playing each zone until I find all their traps. Reminded me of Doom 3 and its "oh-crap-the-lights-went-out-and-something-came-out-of-the-wall-behind-me-and-I-died" moments of "atmosphere". In the end I couldn't stand it any more and went back to GTA...

    Will give it another go, but will probably just end up taking it back to try my first trade-in, for a reasonable game. Guess there was a reason it was bundled; my purchase doesn't look like such a bargain now
