I thought that GCN would right the ship that N64 thwacked off course. 

I guess I was wrong. 

From launching with Luigi's Mansion   :sleep:, to the 3rd party support which is running away faster than a greased hog   :confused: they seem to have only supported the image that they are out of sync with what is going on. Despite the obvious highlights (metroid, zelda: WW) I am getting disgusted.

I just bought this months PSM2 magazine. Futurama was reveiwed and got 75%, not bad. The free DVD had some excellant footage that i have never seen before. It also described some really funny jokes that I won't spoil on here. However, it says that, dispite what i said earlier, Zapp only appears on the loading screens. Oh well.....

Damn no Zapp. Hopefully there will be a second Futurama game where we get to control him, and have more of Zoidberg!

I think whatever story this game will have, Zapp probably wouldnt belong. But controlling Zoidberg would be fun.  :D Though it might kill whatever the story is.

i rang up a sci rep during the weekend and he said no euro release. blast their eyes! i have been losing faith in me ol gamecube for a while now. i might just cave in and buy an x-box, which has been on my mind for a while(nothing on the ps2 i particularly want to own).

its a shame it had to 'die' so quickly, especially with games like zelda, eternal darkness and metroid on it.

one gripe with the gamecube, no pal vga support. i bought a vga box and it doest work with the 'cube.

I was just watching MTV Screenplay in the UK. And today Futurama was reviewed in the games section of the show. Two other cames were also reviewed, something called bloodbath or something like that, which got 6.5/10. A fighting game I think it was Virtua Fighter 4 got 9/10. But Futurama was voted the best game of the three with 10/10!

In the new issue of PSM2 magazine  (I think it's PSM2) with the Return of the King cover story, the inside front cover has a brilliant advert for the Futurama game. It shows Fry Leela and Bender stepping out of that toaster thing from the game shooting a lazer gun a Mom. There's also several very positive review quotes at the bottom of the page.

It's not actually Mom Leela's shooting at, it's a picture of Mom, with Crushinator hanging off it returning fire. Very cool picture, especially Fry and Bender cowering in fear.

The new OPS2 in the UK will have the demo, out Friday.

Cool! Thanks for that, although I don't think i've ever seen OPS2 before? Is the demo playable?

Oh and I know that they weren't actually shooting at Mom in the advert, I just couldn't be bothered to go into too much detail.

3rd person A/A game.. and i'd like to have the option of playing as Fry, Bender, or Leela (with a special character you'd have to unlock, which would be zoidberg) but one can only dream... or...

Has the Gamecube version of the Futurama game actually been cancelled in Europe? I mean, I read that article which was written on the 2nd July or whatever and a week on, in all the schedules I've read, it says that the game is still schedules for a 27th September release. Rather confusing.

I wouldn't worry too much about this but I just saw a site with a "late August" release for the PS2 version. Although a new advert that has only just been produced still says August 1st. Oh and Futurama got 70% in Gamesmaster. They said that the graphics are beautiful, and that the story, script and cutscenes make it the funniest game in history! Strangely enough the game lost points for being "too hard". They said that it feels like the game has a "black soul". Whatever, if it's actually a bit of a challenge that'll be a bonus.

There's being a bit of challenge, and then there's being so bloody unforgiving that you break the controller in anger. You just wait until you get to the crocodiles in the sewers. Oh, you just wait...

Well i've played the demo, and it's bloody good fun! At first I found it very difficult but then I realized that I should actually keep moving as I shoot, and use the targeting system! The graphics are lovely and smooth too. Maybe they should have chosen a slightly brighter and more colourful level to use on the demo, but nevermind.

A couple of tips:

- L1 and R1 let you skip through your weapons. In addition to the gun you're holding at the start, you have a pistol (which I prefer as it fires faster) and a hammer as a last resort. Also, square lets you charge up a shot.

- Don't break the beam with the hammer. Oh, you don't want to do that  ;).

- There are six-packs of Slurm in a crate in the first area, and in the ground floor of the bar. That last one you'll be needing later  ;).

Thanks I knew about most of that, except for using square to charge. Did you know you can also climb up onto platforms in the main square, so that you can drop down to get the crates behind that fence. In the bar I also heard Nibbler when you walk around the seating area. I'm sure he's there to collect but I just can't find him.

No i've got the PS2 Demo! It's with the latest issue of the Official PS2 magazine. Dont get confused with the regular Offical Playstation, this is the one just for PS2. The issue you want has a Tony hawk cover story.

IT'S SOOO COOL, FUNNY, FUNNY STUFF, THE THINGS FRY SAYS AS HE DOES STUFF. Even his lips move when he talks as you move him around, the lock on targeting is well designed and the graphics with the xbox are very smooth, clear and capture the visual style of the show. The cel chading is the best i've seen, its not over done. Plus all of this is moving around the screen at a fantastic frame rate, most likely 60fps.

Awsome, emanon. Is it particularly hard or not?

And how is the Ps2 version M Jackson? And is it in the Australian magazine too? Do they have a website?

I got OPSM2 on Friday, and got home from holiday yesterday. The playable demo is pretty good fun, pretty much what I expected. This game aint gonna win any awards for ingenious ideas or great graphics, but it looks like the show, and it plays fairly nicely. I'll be buying it anyway, even though I'll finish it in a couple of days most likely.

For anyone wanting to know about the demo, it's one of Fry's levels in Old New York, and is actually a timed demo of I guess about 7 or 8 minutes, the clock appears when you have 30 seconds left. I do like the way you can open the crates and get money and Slurm, nice touch and i have no idea why I like it, I just do.

The PS2 demo is good fun. Oh and Kazzahdrane the graphics are excellent. Especially when you get inside the bar and jumping around. The frame rate can slow down just slightly when there's lots of enemys all attacking at once, or something similar. Also the ending for the demo is a bit of a let down. You just shoot and Oven and it blows up, then it say congratulations. However, this isn't the real ending for the level.

i didnt find it hard at all, (but have read recently that its in fact pretty hard, just goes to show that you cant really judge a game totally by its demo) with the lock on targeting it makes it easy to shoot enemies because you can straff <L and >R. The graphics on the xbox demo version are fantastic some of the best that i've seen in a platformer with no slow down at all with lots of characters on the screen. When you blow up the stove and open the wall its not the end of the level, and wont say congratulations in the final version. Dr Zoidy will be plyable but not like the others, he will be in levels where you control him riding creatures in a sort of timed race to the end.  :)

hey Fry2006, try looking around at places that sell magazines, look for game mags with disks on the front and see if the demo is stated on it :)
