    A great gaming track a day

    And for some reason this popped into my head. Not thought of this game for YEARS! And I had no idea it had such a limited release – now rather pricey on eBay? I have no idea where my (PAL) copy went – I sold off my Saturn stuff when I emigrated. Perhaps it's in my mate Jon's loft, in St. Albans...! Didn't find individual tracks but here's the full OST – it's the first track I remember most, of course.. Keio Flying Squadron 2!

    IGN writer busted copying other people's reviews

    It's often too easy, when doing research for writing up a review or report, when you don't yet have a fixed opinion of your own, to get a sentence you agree on in the source stuck in your head. Then it's difficult to stop it becoming your own opinion and just slightly modifying the sentence to suit your style instead of coming up with your own. That's why I would try to avoid other reviews as much as possible if I was ever writing one up for a game or anything else. This guy clearly, deliberately went too far, though. Without actually bothering to read his original stuff, I would assume he was creatively bankrupt but desperate to stay in the game rather than someone who couldn't care less. It reminded me that plagiarism happens in even the most respected media forms as well. Private Eye do a good job of covering all this stuff. One of the sports journalists from the Times blatantly copied from other journalists for a book. At least he apologised and said he was under pressure for a deadline. https://www.theguardian.com/media/greenslade/2014/jul/24/thetimes-plagiarism

    Maybe the games he was meant to give his personal opinion of just left him with nothing to say.

    One of those games I'd never heard of until my Mum bought it for me – despite Sega Power's games index, which I poured over endlessly! Another platformer for me to be useless at! Mystic Defender – Scene 1

    Yeah, i noticed this yesterday but not the previous days I've been playing it. I just assumed I'd damaged my ps4 from falling asleep while playing it and leaving it on for hours before it goes to sleep. Can usually be 30c in my room but it's been cooler the last few days.

    One of the scenes that made me laugh in the first one was when they clearly used stock footage of a storm in Japan - this is mean to be California. You can clearly see Japanese writing on one of the signs.

    IGN writer busted copying other people's reviews

    One would assume that writing about games professionally would be great, that you'd have a real interest in games to go into this kind of job. Also at IGN! A place where it's probable that your work will actually be seen! Ah yes! ...Pete's sake.

    No Celtic fan who isn't a total space cadet has any interest whatsoever in joining the English league, and even our soulless tory-packed board gave up their obsession with it a decade ago. What brought that up?

    Oh, one other thing I thought was weird was the choice of cards that you are allowed to keep between runs. It feels to me like it would make more logical sense to be able to keep a lot of the memos and diagrams stuff, but for some reason while you're allowed to make a note of them you're not allowed to keep them...

    Sounds like you've got a solid force. The one two of the Hac Tao / Hsien is pretty damn hard hitting. One with MSV lvl two to see through camo, one with camo. The ony better ARO HI out there is the Swiss Guard missile Launcher, and onyl because it has one higher BS. Given those two are pretty expensive though, some Kaung Shi would be good as order monkeys as they'll be doing a lot of your heavy lifting through killing. The Guilang sniper isn't a bad option. The BS isn't great, but the infultartion will allow you to choose a good spot within your preferred range bands, and the camo will further help tip the dice odds in your favour, and doubly so if your target has any sort of camo as they have MSV lvl1. However, you are going to need some button pushers. The Guilang and Ninja are my go tos there, but you have several choices. The Tiger, definitely, and not just the Hacker version. The Paramedic is actually really good. Cheaper, plus you have other good hacker options, so you can spread your options for classified missions. One thing I would suggest is getting the support box with the medic and engineer. If you're going to have to expensive models propping up your force having a medic around could literally save your life. I don't have one and I can feel it.
  25. Great film and great to read a thread like this afterwards. I watched the google video, Garland is a great interviewee with lots of interesting things to say about the process of making the film. I just posted in the Dredd thread a similarly revealing thread on the 2000AD forum where he answers questions from the forumites there:

    Was reading the Annihilation thread and remembered this Q&A thread from Alex Garland on the 2000AD forum just as Dredd was released. He’s an interesting chap, very open about the creative bit of the filmmaking process and the business side of things. May be a repost. https://forums.2000ad.com/index.php?topic=36741.0
