My Computer Is Broken...

Posted by Pl511 on July 4, 2010 at 9:42 AM Comments comments (0)

Sorry guys, but my computer recently decided to crap out so I will be unable to use it. We sent it in to John Lewis, and it should be back in around 2 to 3 weeks. Until then I will be unable to write any reviews. I may use my sister's computer as I am using it now, but I will do a review of Halo 3's multiplayer, Halo 3 ODST, Just Cause 2 and COD 4 the day it comes back. Also, imanoob123, Ou est le review de Team Fortress 2? Je pense que c'etait dehors hier, mais ce n'etait pas. Anyway, I may ...

Is SpottyCows Right?

Posted by Pl511 on June 13, 2010 at 5:20 PM Comments comments (0)

So, as most of you will probably know from SpottyCows' most recent post, we are announcing reviews as upcoming events. I will change the tab in a second. Personally, I think this is a good idea. What do you think?

Now, on a completely different note, as I was watching TV, I noticed two things. The first was that England is NEVER going to win the World Cup, so the rather scary amount of World Cup ads going around as pointless. Is any of this actually going to help!?

The second thin...

OK, Here's How It All Happened...

Posted by Spottycows on June 12, 2010 at 4:20 AM Comments comments (0)


OK, basically the day before I went away I went down to PL511's place to meet Nithle for the 1st time. As Pl511's already explained we mostly played Xbox (and I thrashed both of them, because I am an experienced PS2 player =P) and didn't talk much about Gaming Pool. Sorry guys. I figured that I really need to make some new reviews to update the PS2 section, and maybe get some names of Pl511's list. So I've done four new reviews, which I will post in due t...

Back After A Rather Long Break...

Posted by Pl511 on June 4, 2010 at 7:02 PM Comments comments (0)

I'm alive!

Yes this is Pl511! I am back after my lengthy break, and will try to catch up with my huge number of overdue reviews (also gotta finish that video review :P).




-Never got round to it

-Exam revision (I got obsessive...)


Is anyone else out there too? It's not only me that has been taking a break (I'm looking DIRECTLY at both of you, Nithle and SpottyCows).


Last we...

Xbox 360? Or PS2?

Posted by Spottycows on April 24, 2010 at 6:21 AM Comments comments (0)

Hey Guys,

I'm thinking about not getting an Xbox 360 now... Basically because PS2 games are so cheap and I'm discovering loads of old legends that are still pretty amazing. I know I'm missing out on a lot here (like online play) but I just don't want to spend all my money on the latest console, I mean, you can get so many games on PS2 for the price of one Xbox game, even if the graphics aren't always that good. Recently I've been buying loads of games on the four for £10 off...

Almost Over!

Posted by Pl511 on April 17, 2010 at 4:31 AM Comments comments (2)


I'm screwed, and I need help. Not only have I forgotten the homework, I have also lost my bag. Damn. Could people in 3L send me a message of what they know of the homework, and when it will be in for? I kinda need it urgently.  Thanks, and sorry.


Anyway, about the website. Although I have only managed to do 1 review this holiday, I have about three or four more planned, so they should be uploaded soon. Also, I know people probably al...

14 Tomorrow!

Hey guys!

Pl511 here!

And yes, it is my birthday tomorrow. I want a 360. :P

Anyway, considering I will probably be getting a few more games tomorrow, and also I haven't even started on my entire list of games that I myself own, I will be doing a review each week, and I expect everyone else to try and do something along the lines of a review every fortnight. More good news! Nithle said that he would be writing the first guide! Not sure what of at t...

Hey guys!

In the middle of writing my first review at the moment.

If any of you want to join and post your own reviews or guides (or videos), feel free. Hopefully this site will be expanding over the next few weeks.

Does anyone know how I can persuade my dad to get me an Xbox 360? I'm kinda stuck for ideas. I want an Xbox! :(
