Everyone who is cool has played Shadows of the Damned. Only lamers don't want to play it.

I really need to. I really, really, really do. But I have too many games that are still in their fucking shrinkwrap:
Ace Combat 6 (actually, just unwrapped last night)
de Blob 2
Deathsmiles
Child of Eden PS3
Bioshock 2 PC
Pure
The Saboteur (played, originally traded then rebought for cheap)

Plus all my Steam backlog games (which I consider still shrinkwrapped if I haven't fired them up at least once).

Ugh, catching up on this thread is going to be fucking MURDER.

Edit: Page 3 girl boy. Still didn't make the first page, but it'll do. Mark is pleased.

Orbital - Halcyon - Live at Glastonbury

Now that you work for JB, this will be exciting. I would like to hear of some Sony games "breaking street date" from you. Choc isn't angry enough about random things, where the target of said anger changes 3 times per page.

Most will be unreadable combinations of random characters simply chosen because people's preferred Gamertags are taken.

They're definitely awesome, but their music can be really fucking tiring, either too relaxing or too intense. I haven't fired up a track of theirs for far too long. But, if you like them, check out the best ambient song that has ever been made. It's like someone recorded the sounds that go through your head when you're finally at peace, right before you die. Heavenly.

Listening now, thanks for the tip.

edit: oh wow, and only 3 minutes in so far. Getting this song and whatever album its on, should compliment Wipeout HD Zone sessions nicely tyvm.

edit 2: outside of itunes, which I wont use, what is the best way to (legally) acquire this song/remix?

It's nigh-on impossible to get pretty much anywhere, but I'll gladly hook a brother up if I have the wherewithal to find it amongst my grossly disorganised collection.

I think Amazon sell it too, but pretty sure it's a right bitch to try and buy stuff from there. Also, all the dance music (legal) MP3 sites I know of don't have it either. I think you're safe on this one. Also, Chicane's earlier stuff (when he was big in dance but wasn't really big commercially) are amazing for chillicious sounds:
No Ordinary Morning (a personal fave)
Offshore (original mix and his first track, but still freaking awesome)
Saltwater (a little dancier, not as ambient but still a really nice track)

I could go on, but the longer I think of stuff the further I'll get from the reason why you like that remix of Offshore '97 so much.

Edit: (to keep Banshushackazulu happy) Someone posted this futuristic racer (free!) on another gaming forum I visit. Haven't check it yet, but the videos make it look like some Motorhead/POD (the games, not the bands) hybrid.

Well it gives me some stuff to look for anyway. Even if I dont find the exact one, I'm always happy to have another recommendation to check out.

You cunt. I have to get three fillings on Wed. and sometime shortly after, get a wisdom tooth yanked. But I've been pretty woeful with my dental hygiene the last five years :/

Used to never floss then a couple of years ago I just started doing it for some reason. Now my mouth feels weird if I don't get my floss on in the morning and evening.

Blood on the Sand was actually a hell of a lot of fun. Really good third person shooter with really strong mechanics. Solid pickup for $30.

Underworld - Scribble. Such a happy song. Doesn't fail in cheering me up.

Certainly Infamous 2 cannot fit the Terribad description. What is terribad about it? They tightened up all the controls, the powers are varied and more useful than before (aside from the throwaway pre-order ones) and the enemies are a hell of a lot of fun to takedown. Also a challenging game, you can't just breeze through you actually have to use strategy to avoid getting fucked up. When you are gliding across the final zones taking out 4 or 5 different enemy types without breaking a sweat you feel like god damned Superman or something. User generated content is continually getting updated so the new editor can basically make Infamous 3 at this point. All they need to add in is a Voice Acting option.

Best course of action really since everyone in here knows the rules and are fairly nice (well, not lately, but I am sure everyone will get the sand out of their vaginas sooner rather than later). The mods have been really diligent with thread titles spoilers lately which is good.

It was okay live, but when I first heard it, it was such a departure from their previous awesomeness that I've not bothered with any of their new stuff. Sorry to sound like a Brendan Brewer, but everything post A Hundred Days Off (and some during, save for Two Months Off) has been kinda disappointing.

Still fucking LOVE this though. First video I ever saw that was done entirely in one shot.
