Hamburg, Germany. 36 yrs, physicist. Been playing GTA:VC since last spring
when I accidentally won a PS2 from my bank (for recruiting my wife as a
new customer -- I hadn't even known they had this lottery thing going).
Bought GTA:SA soon after it came out although I hadn't finished VC yet
because I wanted to see what the heck everybody on this NG was talking
about.

I've never been much of a computer player and never had a video console.
Yet I sort of have the hunch that I'm never going to live without one
although I'm not playing much ;-)

It's funny how much you miss them when they're gone. When we got our
first psone (we had other consoles before) I decided it was gathering
dust as we couldn't afford the games so I sold it... boy was that a
mistake. Luckily I managed to pick up another in just as good
condition not long after.

I like the fact that they seem to know no age boundaries. Everyone
from our four year old grandchild to ourselves (That's a 45 year gap)
play on the ps2 and xbox.

In England the machine on its own is around £99, though some companies
offer a free game etc. I had to pay a little more, with a game at xmas
as my old machine gave up while trying to play SA. Games vary, with
the cheapest new games being platinum on offer, 2 for £30, and the
most expensive around £40. I'd do the conversion into dollars but
maths was never my strong point

> anyone played gran turismo 4 yet?

It seems to be getting slammed by many who have, if you take a look in
the ps2 newsgroups.

Complaints from lack of multiplayer online, bad physics (though the
description of cars being heavy on corners sounds like the last game
to me)but mainly some problem with visual flickering at odd times.
Seems they have designed the game to run at a very high dpi for HDTVs
but depending on your settings there is judder.

Having said this other people seem more than happy with it and point
to improvements... and the return of the second hand cars!!!

What a pitty Paul, never been on the mainland?
With Durham Airport near you you should have a look at Ryanair to have a
flight to Rome.
But be advised, don't rent a car use pubblic transport instead. Or if
you're some kind of fearless British Knight you could consider to rent a
bike or scooter. Any other means of transportation in Rome would drive
you crazy ;-)
And if you wan't some kind of GTA feeling, have a trip south and go to
visit Napoli. One of the most beautifull cities around. But reckless
drivers, pickpockets, scam artists of any species will prove your street
wiseness ;-)

Thanks for the nudges. The wife and I keep sort of planning something
then bottling it. We have a ferry terminal just down the road so we
could get to places like Norway quite easily and in fact my sister
once offered to pay our way as long as we brought back a lot of duty
frees :o )

hmmm .... but there's no GTA feeling in Norway ;-)
Let's see ....
Ryanair - Durham Tees Valley (MME) - Rome Ciampino (CIA)
Departure 01.05.05 20.00 - Arrival 23.55 Flight 9656
Ryanair - Rome Ciampino (CIA) - Durham Tees Valley (MME)
Departure 05.05.05 17.40 - Arrival 19.35 Flight 9655
Total Cost 29.63 GBP per person. A train trip to London would cost at
least 64.00 GBP!

No passport needed only Idenitiycard.

Rome at springtime ...... good food, good wine, good clothes .........
If you go with your wife you should take some extra cash with you, since
the femals are reaction in an strange way to the offerings in all those
shops. But after a shoping trip in Via Condotti she will love you to
pieces ;-)

aren't they more expensive than passports?

It certainly can't be worse than Luton. If Rockstar need to shock even
more people, they should do the next installment there.

Personally, I'd really love to see video-game teenagers sniffing glue on
the backs of buses and shoplifting just for kicks....

Except he lives in adlington, just to get away from the town. In a
very nice house that my mates dad used to own then sold it to ryan
gigs then he sold it to peter kay.
Lovelly house though.

However i prefer big sam and the bad boy el hadj diouf for the reason
to go to bolton.

(as you can tell i am a wanderers fan

sha la la la la la la la diouf diouf,
sha la la la la la la la diouf diouf,
sha la la la la la la la diouf diouf,
el hadji diouf will spit on you

little while ago when he were still living there, filmed generally in
his back alley and bedroom. He was proudly showing off his jim'll fix
