    Just got my Edge magazine this morning and watched the DVD of the E3 show that came with it. I think it's a great idea putting the highlights of the e3 onto the DVD for poor bleeders like me who can't afford to go there for real. That "Sukedi" or whatever it's called for XBOX looks good, also that Fable gamefor XBOX. I won't tell you the results of their top 5 from the e3 as it will spoil your viewing pleasure.

    Also I think I found and easter egg on the DVD, unless it's just my DVD player not playing correctly. At the menu with an arrow (less than sign) showing just press left 3 times and a question mark should appear, and then just press select, and there's some footage of some game.

    Oh if your into these Easter Egg things for DVDs programs, etc I highly recommend
    this site.

    Edit: why isn't my link working.
    Edit2: aah it's because of the less than sign above - now removed

    So how long's the DVD then?
    Is it worth picking up Edge for it?

    nice one finding the easter-egg, whats the guess they'll tell us all about it in the next issue of edge!

    it was interesting, it wasn't as indepth as i would of liked but considering its free its not the cheap-job i expected.

    the N-gage footage is funny stuff ;)

    Heh, if it's got some of the N-Gage presentation, then I'll have to get it (I watched the streamed, modem sized version before).

    Hmm... might have to swallow my pride and pick up an Edge this month then. It's been a while, maybe it's improved... :-)

    Yes it does but it's usually the same video over and over again. Where the Hydra's arm grabs the guy on the ledge, and also the other scene is where they show the big tripod things.

    Or alternatively just BEING 'clever' and 'ironic'. EDGE digs are so 'last year'. Find a new random ill-informed vitriol target.

    I can't seem to find the above DVD in this months edge or even on the cover. Is it the one with the Half Life 2 design on the cover?

    Luckly I hadn't, but then I have had 3 more since I last posted. All I want is an answer!

    This could be an easy way of crashing Future, if everybody sends email...

    Erm, if you need an answer, call them. And while you're there report the problem with their e-mail system.

    Too be fair I emailed them before phoning (work reasons), trouble is that email has come back to haunt me!
    Might ring them again to tell them though.

    The cd's of PCGamer have a small vid of a game matching that description, it was on twice this month, and its been on before. The file is called "soldier"

    Its weird.

    I bought that yesterday and its quite good, and it has interviews with Shiggsy, Mr. Gosen (head of Nintendo Europe), bloke who designed the SP and bloke who made Super Monkey Ball.

    It is old - it's the first 'Soldier of Fortune' game, mostly the first level (so it is a Q2 mod, just a commercial one). The split-screen bit suggests a console version, but otherwise I've got no idea why it's there
