    I've got a Cork slip Matt on my project. Wasn't expensive, looks OK and I never have any issue with static. Might be worth considering.

    Creative agencies?

    For illustration give folio a call: www.folioart.co.uk For design I use withus: http://www.withus-recruit.com/ I'd probably be able to give more of a steer if I knew your background, previous clients, areas of work etc. If you've got advertising design experience and are in London I'd love to see your portfolio. Can't promise anything but I do use some freelance designers at the company I work for. Drop me a PM if you like.

    How much should I charge for design work?

    As far as industry rates are concerned I charge my design staff out at £88 per hour for senior design and £120 for an Art Director. Obviously thats as a professional company though so won't be applicable for you however I would expect to pay a designer/animator £300 - £350 a day on a freelance contract so you could work out an hourly rate based on that. The other thing to bear in mind is what something is worth to your buyer. Just because something takes you half an hour to produce it's not worth £15. Consider your experience and education to be what your client is actually paying for and it might help you set a price. Me personally I would charge £200 for that screensaver.

    Next Generation?

    I've got to admit this is a valid point. Clipping problems spoil the solidity of a game, as does characters running on the spot when they hit a wall (another pet hate). That's not a whinging moan, this shit just needs to be sorted out and surly it can be now a days. Fuck, how hard is it? Personally, going back to the title of the topic, I can't see the leap we're making with this new generation. It's not like going from a Master System to a Megadrive to a Saturn to a Dreamcast. (Appologies for the sega flavour but the same could be said NES > SNES > N64 > Gamecube). Wheres the leap with this new generation. What have I got to be excited about. What games look markedly different from good current gen titles. Where's something that's going to make me want this stuff so bad I'll consider buying it at launch on Lay a way from Freemans. Come on optimists prove it. Show me the next generation, I really want to see it.

    Which Game Franchises Have You Missed Out

    I'd quite like to try the .Hack series, I've read it's not to everyones taste and the games not perfect but the premise of these four games really appeals to me.
  7. As Mr Pickford pointed out, revenue isn't the same as profits. Revenue is the money generated before costs are deducted. Now I was always under the impression that consoles were sold as a loss leader for the games so wouldn't that statement suggest that Microsoft are about to lose a shit load of money?

    Gta - Liberty City Stories

    I had a bit of a browse last night but I was itching to get stuck into the game. I'll read it properly tonight, really liked the style though, it's a nice approach to take with the manual.

    Gta - Liberty City Stories

    I can't find the script but there's one particular ad for tampons that had me crying with laughter.

    Gta - Liberty City Stories

    Your right there, Terroist is brilliant. And with out spoiling anything for anyone the ads in this one have had me laughing out loud.

    Supposedly there's a mission later on that unlocks this feature.

    Gta - Liberty City Stories

    Cheers dude, just googled it and it's "A Dark March", nice tune, now all I need to do is find a copy of it somewhere.

    Gta - Liberty City Stories

    Spin Spin Sugar by the Sneaker Pimps and Higher Stater of Consious by Josh Wink put a big smile on my face as I was driving round this morning. Thinking about it, and this might be better for ATF but does anyone know what the piece of music is when you complete a mission? Is it a full song or just something Rockstar made up?
