    It gets like this sometimes... It's bloody 5:40 in the morning and I can't sleep, this is crap. Sarge, your often up at ridiculous hours, how does one combat this?

    I find Coffee doesn't work, but helps comfort you that you're normal and being up at such times is all part of a natural cycle.

    Otherwise, Rohypnol works well: especially if you have a handy supply around anyways.

    Don't d/l the PS2 or X box emulators I heard that they have viruses and spyware crap. It aint worth wrecking your computer for it. It is down to personal choice when it comes to game play on the PC or a console. Not much of a game player myself, have had a go at all the lastest consoles and each have their own good qualities. I still have my NES. Been looking at getting a GBA SP just for fun, something to do when I am on the train or something.

    Lute, WTF? Halo is crap???? Man so not the case, are you high?

    This game is bloody unstoppably brilliant!! I mean you can play it again and again and really, seriously, in the fair-dinkum department hands on heads by jingoes you won't get bored one ioata. The set-up is easy and the difficulty levels are challenging (especially legendary), you can have a couple of beers with a mate while doing missions sweet two kevs no worries. Most of all its downright fun and story-wise, it's engaging. F Pc.

    The PC port of HALO is really bad, it shows how low the standards are of consoles in comparison, especially for the graphics and game play. Damm conversions

    Quote from Megagames: "It seems that EBGames' release dates have become a speculation hotbed for all relevant news sites. Following the constant H-L 2 release date changes, the online retailer has now moved on to providing release dates for game ports where none have been announced. The latest EB rumour has to do with True Crime : Streets of LA; while no PC version was announced by Activision, the games' retailer suggested that they would have a copy of a PC version in March of 2004.
    Unless EBG have moved into the porting business this means that Activision have plans for the game, plans which they chose not to reveal in order to boost console sales, I suspect.

    The question is if EB Games, like the large responsible company that they are, have some special contact with publishers and therefore, priviledged release information. If so the date announced, which was subsequently eliminated from their site, is a reliable estimation of a possible release. The other possibility is that the company used their experience and produced a rough date, for their own planning purposes, which accidentally surfaced on their web site. Unlikely, after all a game that follows Vice City so closely, would also follow a similar console to PC course right?

    Activision have refused to confirm the port but then again have not denied it either. It is possible that the whole release leak was a marketing exercise to test PC demand, with minimal damage to console sales, in order to decide on the development of a port."


    It just goes to show how damaging to console sales a release of the same game on PC can be. Because PC rocks!!!!!!
