    My mate David pirates every game he plays only ever does he buy one if he absolutely needs to so he can play mulitplayer. Its getting rather annoying as hes just pirated Deus Ex like aw this is amazing. Im starting to hate him as i think he just got a pc because he thinks wow free games.

    LOL he doesn't even call it pirating he calls it downloading.

    There was a guy on youtube i watched who said he was getting Elder Scrolls Skyrim on xbox 360 and thinks its okay to pirate the pc version since he paid for it once already. I left a comment saying just buy the superior pc version and fuck buying the 360 one, no reply lol.

    but if he did that, he wouldnt be able to co-op with his console buddies. (I havent seen the game but im guessing you can co-op on it)

    Skyrim is single player only
    Deus Ex is single player only.

    Dead island my mate was going to pirate and i was like but its mulitplayer he was like ima buy it then, fucking asshat.

    Well im not sure about Battlefield i dont think it has co op in the campaign or split screen multiplayer.

    split screen for BF on a console is going to be chaotic if its a small screen their playing on.

    One of the greatest things about having a 23" or bigger screen is you get to see a lot more shit thats happening so you can react to incoming threats quicker.

    for racing or MMO's its fine though.

    Battlefield definitely wont allow people to split screen and go online at the same time and i dont think it will have 4 player local multiplayer either.
    To me but it depends how far away from the screen you sit but 24inch is perfect for sitting at a desk.

    EDIT: Battlefield 3 has online co op mission and along with the normal multiplayer but no split screen. Im not even bothered i was talking about piracy and how my mate is.

    I had a launch N64 but i sold it to my mate in the 2000s, then in 2010 i bought another one for £20 with 2 controls, rumble packs, memory card, some games, boxes for everything apart from the console. Ive got Goldeneye 64 but its aged very much and no one ever wants to play it :(

    Speaking of old stuff i just bid on a Commodore C64c. Comes with a 80s Dot Matrix Printer, 2 tape decks, a floppy disk drive, a cartridge game, lots of random disks, a tray thing for storing disks, power cable, needs a controller but i have megadrive ones that hopefully will work as they share the same connection. Its pick up only but East Kilbride is just outside Glasgow, might even get my cousin who stays there to pick it up. Buy it now is £35 but im fist bidder at £22 and its got a few hours left.

    Dual wielding that made you fucking invincible. I used to like dual wielding the RCP90 and the Grenade Launcher. Best mission was frigate. I used to race to select oddjob first since he was tiny and hard to kill. Proximity Mine was the shit, you could just set them at a door and hide in a room, awesome nostalgia hit.

    SLAPPERS ONLY LADS!

    I remember doing that mission. I tried to board the frigate, but the door kept bouncing back and closing for some reason....then I found out that the Ai had convienient placed an enemy right behind the fucking door so i couldnt open it and get in. that was one off though.

    It was quite funny lol, I was like WTF, why wont the door open??? I dont think you could shoot through doors back then either.
