I didn't know you could change slots either... whenever I approach a weapon it just automatically picks a slot to go into (replaces a specific weapon).
Is it true that there aren't any planes in the game, just gliders (like in the original)?

no, sorry, the slots are specific to the weapon.
but what you will find is the odd weapon fitting into different slots. so the dart rifle goes in the same slot as the heavy weapons, and the small grenade launcher in the same slot as the pistols. so that way i got to use a sniper rifle and an assault rifle in the same set up. they aren't interchangable, and it doesn't make it clear when you are purchasing them. just hope for the best.
yeah just gliders, they mgiht do something with a dlc pack one day i guess as they added a couple of vehicals a while back.

Aha, ok... I'll have a fiddle about then and see what I can put where.
That's a little bit cheeky I think, there being no planes... it says on the tin you can "run, swim, drive and fly", but you can actually only "run, swim, drive and glide/float/fall slowly"!! :)

Cuz it's the Spectrum's birthday today I'm spending some time in the company of Speccy games. I've had a few shots of W*H*B and I have an urge to give Lords of Midnight a shot...

I'm currently getting my butt handed to me on GTA IV on XBox Live... and there I was thinking I was really good at it!! :grin:
Played some Far Cry 2 online yesterday too. Not much other than your straight forward deathmatch, but fun nonetheless.

Need to play some more GTA IV online with you at some point. That last game we had was hilarious, I think it was a good 30 mins before the other guys realised that we'd actually been teaming up against them :lol:

I'm playing MADWORLD on the Wii, but it's just gone a bit pear shapped. I don't know if anybody else here has played it, but it's great fun until you get to the castle level. The games then turns into a zombie/werewolves thingy that is not only out of place, but they have introduced a new "grim reaper" enemy that can kill you outright in one hit. To me, it's just sucked all the fun out of it :(

I played through the entire game the other Sunday afternoon. I didn't expect much, but in the end I was quite surprised that I actually enjoyed the game. The biggest surprise to me was that the story line was quite good, and the storytelling execution was excellent, including camera work, cuts, mixing comics-like stills with the rest, etc. - I didn't expect that from a game like this. Unlike NMH, the ending was very satisfying, too - I appreciated that they didn't let anyone make fool of Jack (and me). And once I knew what it was all about, I felt an urge to play through again just to see all the little details in the cutscenes which you aren't supposed to notice the first time around.
OTOH, I don't understand how the in-game camera controls could have passed their QA, especially the camera locking is completely dreadful. IMHO they would score one 1/10 point higher if they had improved that before release.
As for the castle level, for me it was one of the most frustrating parts as well. I have never ever managed to avoid being hit by the Grim Reaper once I was caught by the zombie, no matter how I tried to shake or wave the remote. I found out it's best not to get caught at all in the first place. While skating, though, he's not such a big problem, as one slash with your chainsaw will make him disappear, and it's not an instant KO at that time either. As you say, this is not much fun, but at least the golf minigame kind of compensates for this... :)

I found THPS3 to be one of the best Tony games on the PS2, the PS1 version isn't as good - too many empty areas. Although Underground 1 and 2 are good aswell.
Steer clear of Project 8 on the PS2 though - it's garbage.
I've just finished RE2's LeonA scenario with a B ranking. Which is a bast 'cuz I finished it in about 1 hour 40. I was hoping for at least an A.
I'm trying to get Tofu unlocked and you need to finish the game 6 times in a row (LeonA/ClaireB/LeonA/ClaireB/LeonA/ClaireB or ClaireA/LeonB/ClaireA/LeonB/ClaireA/LeonB) using the same save slot, with an A on all of them. Just finished the 2nd time with Leon so I might have to start again!
Gonna take bloody ages!

I'm about to start playing SIlent Hill 2, I checked it out quickly yesterday, not sure I like the look of it here on the PC. Looks too sharp, too clean, not grainy and dirty looking like the PS2 version.
Anyway now I have this I can buy 3 and 4 for my PS2, the only reason I didn't was cos' I couldn't find a copy of 2 for under $30 which I wasn't willing to pay for a game that's coming close to 10 years old, especially since the latest installment in the series is cheaper than it brand new.
