Hi people, just a notice that we are holding a LAN Party in Northampton around the date of 27th of June for 3 days (hardcore).

This will be the second LAN weve done, and should hopefully get bigger and better with time. Come along to Vulgar Display of Power 2.0 if you can make it. Message me s.patten@uea.ac.uk if you are interested in a place.

There will be **** loads of games. All Pc titles on offer, bring your own beer/drink/food/cables/bedding.

27-05-2003, 10:33 PM
Local Area Network party. Take PCs along (maybe consoles) and hook them together in a network. Mainly for First Person Shooters (FPS) or Real Time Stratergy (RTS) games.

27-05-2003, 10:36 PM

04-06-2003, 03:35 PM

" I will ****ing bury you! "
" Hey **** you peice of ****! "

Or perhaps beat someone to death with a Crowbar ehe :cool:

Kingpin is so harsh :O It was banned in loads of States in America i heard... But then again they ban anything :P ... And sue anyone :O

04-06-2003, 05:33 PM
Whats Kingpin :confused:

04-06-2003, 06:02 PM
A game where you throw insults at oneanother by things like swearing.

04-06-2003, 06:20 PM
It's pretty old but its still friggin awesome! I think it's out of print now but ya can still buy it in value packs and stuff..

04-06-2003, 08:42 PM
Hehe yeah, i bought it for 8 quid, and it came with Soldier of Fortune 1, which is also quite vulgar, but not as cool as Kingpin :P

05-06-2003, 10:15 PM
Junon you big fat newb im coming to Northants to kick your ass !!!!

05-06-2003, 10:54 PM
Lol. Looks like you got competition Junon.

Oh yeh, before I forget to ask. By any chance does your name come from that city in Final Fantasy VII Junon? Im sure theres a city somewhere in the game called that.

01-07-2003, 11:26 PM
Heh everyone thinks its from Final Fantasy VII, Its actually from a Sega Saturn game called Dragon Force :O Its like a tactical RPG RTS typey game. Theres loads of different regions on this huge land and you choose from like 1 of 12 Hero type people and try and conquer the land! I was playing this game as i was just getting into online games, my first being Diablo so i needed an alias. In Dragon Force i choose Junon; The Black knight and i thought sod it, sounds cool that'll be my alias... But as i progressed in the story in Dragon Force i found out Junon was infact a woman lol! But ive been known as Junon for ages so **** it ^_^ and if anyone takes the piss, at least i can just change my story and say... Yea its from Final Fantasy :P

01-07-2003, 11:30 PM
Lol i just noticed you asked me about my name like a month ago... sod it - better late than never :rolleyes:

02-07-2003, 07:43 PM
Lol its ok. Sounds like a good game. Have you ever played Final Fantasy VII? Its a great game. Final Fantasy X for the PS2 is great aswell.

Just a note, if your a Final Fantasy fan, you can expect the brand new Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles to be top of your Christmas list as it has been given a December UK release date. Ive heard it will hit our shops around 12th December.

02-07-2003, 07:57 PM
Yea i played FF7 a bit, never completed it though. As for Crystal Chronicles, yea i'll probably get it - looks quite good :) I want F-Zero and Soul Calibur 2 aswell :(

02-07-2003, 08:02 PM
The end boss is dead easy on Final Fantasy VII. Its Seproith (spelt it wrong but who cares) and your Limit meter goes up because he gets angry and the you use your Ultimate Limit and kill him. I think it was called Omnislash.

Crystal Chronicles looks amazing. I got a video of it on my computer and it looks amazing. The multiplayer mode looks crazy on it! Dead fast! Be a great laugh when Im playing with my mates.

02-07-2003, 08:02 PM
Soul Calibur 2 is just going to rule. I loved the gallery on Soul Calibur 1. I could look at the hundreds of pictures all day. :D

02-07-2003, 08:06 PM
Looks great, but Im not really into fighting games that much. Im gona give it a try though cause it looks amazing! Link looks great in it too. Good idea to inclue him in the pack.

05-07-2003, 02:16 AM
try it?!...try it?!...no no my frend BUY it! if england gets nintendo power (probobly you do) but you would be wanting to buy it trust me dont waste your time renting it!

(praying 4 pso as the answer) I could still kinda have some fun and its a great way to get away from duppers. It's like heaven!!!:)

06-07-2003, 08:25 PM
Srry bout that i meant to say the guy at bottom has a sword holster

06-07-2003, 10:23 PM
Is a Sword holster, the thing that holds the sword. It looks alot different from the rest of the Final Fantasys. It looks sort of Medevil, just ignore the ship in the air :) Is it me or do the people look kinda ghoolish. They look like ghosts.

07-07-2003, 08:29 PM
Yeah it is.the people do look very ghosty

07-07-2003, 08:32 PM
Thought so..

09-07-2003, 08:17 PM
looks good...wut system...just ps2?:(

10-07-2003, 06:05 PM
Yeh I think so. I think they may bring it out for the Gamecube too, since SquareEnix are creating games for Nintendo once again :)

10-07-2003, 10:11 PM
It might just since final fantasy and nintendo are working together on the new game Final Fantasy : Crystal cronacles but there will be no more frustrating random encounters its set really time just like PSO.

10-07-2003, 10:24 PM
Ive heard theve got numerous plans to bring out games on Nintendo consoles. As far as I know now, theres 2 GBA games and I think 2 Gamecube games planned.

11-07-2003, 02:08 AM

11-07-2003, 04:17 PM
Heres all the games I'm aware that Square-Enix are producing for Nintendo:

GBA - Final Fantasy Tactics
Final Fantasy Sword of Mana

GC - Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles

11-07-2003, 06:40 PM
:( thts all i have heard too...

12-07-2003, 11:42 AM
Theres no doubt that more will be coming out :):) Im not sure if its true, but I think theres a Chocobo Racing game coming out. Its only a rumor though. Has any one else heard this?

12-07-2003, 02:21 PM
What will they do next?
If u want my op.,Final Fantasy:Cristal Cronicles is realy s***(okay so I haven't played yet).I mean,they think gamecube is only for kids,when I heard about the FF:CC I thought it would be like FF 7 or FF 8,but no!Come with the "kid" games,won't you?

12-07-2003, 08:02 PM
i for one would highly doub many other people are thinking of tht. i mean comon! everyone was saying, "oh great now zelda games are only for kids." when they saw the windwaker!, and now look at what their saying! It could be the 2003 game of the year! (or at least for gamecube):) chill, it'll be a great game

12-07-2003, 08:21 PM
Well said!

12-07-2003, 09:24 PM
Maybe,but a possible G.O.T.Y game is Soul Calibur 2.And i'm also waiting for the(Possible) Zelda with good graphics(Non cell-shaded s***) and Viewtifull Joe.

For all those Final Fantasy VII lovers out there, this article is for you! Although the report is kind of old, it makes the future look bright :):

Final Fantasy VII - 2?

It's been quite a while since anyone truly "reported" anything about Final Fantasy VII. In reality, just another classic which was lost within the pages of time, but seriously not forgotten.

With Square flying left and right with various ideas bubbling inside their proverbial pot of goodies, it seems they'd love to get there fingers into a second Final Fantasy sequel and they're pointing their sights at Final Fantasy VII.

Many people will remember this emotional roller coaster as something of a true blue old timer in relation to some of today's more advanced model games. But Final Fantasy VII was a first for Square on many levels.

Some of these were the fact that it was the first time the company made a strong impression on the EU, with its highly strung values and attractive FMV sequences and all importantly, the story line which brought so many of us to tears.

IGN's news teams dived headfirst into the brain of one of the original Final Fantasy VII project directors, a Mr.Yoshinori Kitase, who gave out the following information.

IGN Reporter: "Are the rumors true about FFVII-2?"

Yoshinori Kitase: "A sequel to FFVII?" -laughs-
"In truth, there are many who'd like to make such a game, Nomura, who's working on Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, included. Many of the Square staff participated in the development of FFVII, and the memories are strong. Additionally, expressing the world of FFVII using today's technology would certainly be interesting -laughs-." "However, FFVII still has many fans, We couldn't make a bad product. -laughs-"

As emotionally attached to the game as Square is, they're even sceptical of their own work where this game goes. Its a golden road on which they want to retrace their steps perfectly. One false move and they could turn this newer game into a major disappointment.

Only one word is needed to summarise all of this, YAY! Most probably the best ever Final Fantasy game to be created, to come with a complete new storyline, improved graphics, amazing FMV movies and more! I simply cant wait. No news is yet saying what platform it will be on. Most unlikely for the Gamecube or X-Box. I'd buy a PS2 just for this game :)
