Bargain, 33 quid, hmm, thanks for checking, it's a thought. I meant can you have two players on the same keyboard?

Poor bairn, you mean he has to sit up all hunched, baccy breath and pits distance from his baldy old man? I'd be up the end of the garden on wireless :D

Currently playing Fallout New Vegas, and loving it ... even though it's full of bugs and crashes more than Fallout 3 :D

You know, New Vegas has only crashed for me once, which is pretty good going, though I did encounter a scorpion stuck in the landscape last time I played.

I've actually gone back to playing Oblivion for the moment, though I do intent to finish FONV.

Cripes i don't half want a better PC. I'm very very keen indeed to try ME I&II and the FO games. However, in the steam sale i did get both S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games for 3 quid, started the first about 4 hours ago and only just stopped for beddy byes so............ Anyone else played it? No spoilers please :) Honestly, game wise i havn't been so immersed since the Half Lifes.........

Aye, stalker is good. Played it when I'd just started pc gaming and it was solid. I had to come back to it later on when I had gotten better :D The bad guys are ruthless!
Enjoying dead space. The mouse controls on the pc were awful and I didn't want to play with controller because I was terrible with one back then. Really enjoying it on the xbox.

They've nerfed the ak74u :( Fair enough, I say. The grip was making it far too stable. I thought something was up, I wasn't winning by as great a margin today and came online to see if anything had happened :D

http://www.callofduty.com/board/viewtop ... tg1772hrk3

We think the AK74U grip variant re-center speed is too quick. Although the tuning in line with other grip variant weapons, the gun itself has a very perfectible kick and other attributes or attachments that make it a popular weapon to use. We have slightly de-tuned the AK74u grip for version 1.06.

The Razer Onza Tournament Edition will cost a not inconsiderable £45, with the Standard edition around £35. Both are available for pre-order on January 17.


Anyone planning on picking one of these up? If so, which one? I might go for the twisty stick one. Can always eBay it if it turns out to be shite.
If it feels like a regular microsoft controller but with a more responsive d-pad, more consistent analogue sticks and 0 percent chance of slow-turn then it has to be worth a go.
