I gave you some options when you last asked...

If you want somewhere really good this weekend, it may be too late to book. Whatever you do, for the love of god, do NOT go to Lygon Street. If someone suggests you go there, they don't know food and should be slapped.

You could try San Telmo, Senoritas, Hu Tong, Seamstress, Mo Vida, Mo Vida Next Door (no reservations taken/needed), Taxi, Cumulus Inc, Izakaya Den. Some of those places might blow your budget though so check their websites.

Indeed. It will be a major case of "I told you so" from all invested factions. I think the last big drama was the Thursdayton thread, or the Wiimote reveal.

Wait, there is an auto shotgun? The rifle is great for dense crowd control out in the open and shotgun is great running around indoors.

Then somewhere after. A bar or club. I've been to cherry bar so maybe that but she might not be into that rock scene, I dunno yet. Every place I know is too far out of the city or not applicable for that night!

Yes, I'm quite ignorant of what Melbourne has. I know places in Sydney and Brisbane easy. I need to start on Melbourne.

does it need to be cbd? if u want to be fancy theres a nice vegetarian joint up brunswick st in fitzroy whos name i forget, not very romamtic private, but nice jazzy friendly atmos, and theirs plenty of cocktail bars near

Did you sign a release? If not, you are entitled to some compensation. Being used to advertise a product is the only circumstance where a model release is required.

I received a CD in the post a while back and hadn't gotten around to opening and ripping it to my PC yet. It's some creepy and atmospheric ambient music that would be great to use when running some Cthulhu or other horror RPG (which is the intent behind their creation). The creator included some album themed postcard things and one of them contained a personalised message. I though it was cool enough to share with you guys.



You can have a bit of a listen if you want at http://www.cthulhumusic.com/

Just received the rubber feet I mentioned last week for propping up the 3DS top screen so it doesn't get marked by the lower screen edges nor circle pad. Here's a pic:



And from the side to see how much it lifts the screen:



The minimum I could order was the 60 shown, so I'm happy to send some out to other Aussies by regular mail.

If you want some, PM me and I'll send off 6 of the rubber feet by regular mail for $1.70 (which covers the stamp, envelope and a tenth of what I paid). Payment can be by Paypal, you pay any fees (although I think it's free for personal payments in AUD). I know there was a little interest already from when I first posted them, but there's plenty more to go around.

Just lazy. Need to find a game to spark you into action, or get into another hobby to the point where you get the urge to play games again.

I've got an x360 and I've literally finished one game in two years of owning it (gta4)

Don't get me wrong, I think it looks great; I looooooove Disney's style and line art. Is it Rayman: Origins level, though? Not quite. The fact is (assuming Vince is serious) is that it isn't even fair to compare the two, considering the disparity of the systems that they reside on.

I think it looks awesome. Just to be clear. It is not Rayman: Origins, though.

No. 800 people working across several versions. Wii is lead version (!) and developed by Junction Point, with PS3/360 versions developed by another studio. The 3DS version is different in terms of gameplay, taking off from where the 16 bit games left off.

Correct.

Same here. It's always risky business taking after a long lost and much loved game. Many reboots simply fail to deliver when compared with nostalgia.

Originally Posted by Planet_JASE

Deadly serious. Rayman Origins looks incredible, but pixel art looks more authentic given the medium. 2D art isnt dependent on resolution or technical brilliance as much as bleeding edge 3D is in order to look great. Art style, themes, characterisation conveyed through small details (due to lack of realism) etc all matter greatly. Rayman looks good but to me it doesnt look like I think 2D should look like. In a weird way.

Hey Kritz, I'm watching the livestream footage from last night and you made a mistake.

You said CoD3 was the first CoD to have vehicles in MP, but CoD UO had them in MP and that was the expansion for the first game.
