  1. I'm sure I read some months ago that the game would be a third faster, and the camera moveable? Correct? I don't care, I'm getting it anyway, hard is definitely doable and I'm no great player. I got about half way through on it, however I kept playing through it on normal as I enjoyed it more.
  2. I enjoyed the PC version massively, although it felt incredibly unfair in places. Such as when the other men kept stealing my kills, and I was told I wasn't up to standard, and sent home with a Game Over. Despite the fact it was the middle of the war and I'd been heroic in places!
  4. Vegetable is excellent. Who cares what it's about, it's got a great structure. And I have no idea what you are talking about with the extra notes, it sounds great to me as I don't masturbate with a guitar in bed at night. Yes, that's an accusation, sir!
  5. I agree with all of this, except for all of it. The Bends is superb, but my least listened to Radiohead album after Pablo Honey nowadays. Hence your test of time statement is this wrong: wrong in the extreme.
  6. I'd apologise for the size of the image, but it's such a good album it deserves it! Zing!
  7. I love some tracks on Wedding Present, notably tracks 3 and 4, but the rest is a little disappointing. I agree with The National, an incredible album. I'll nominate: The Lucksmiths - Warmer Corners
  8. Does no one read Edge here or something? The arrows will change according to the Difficulty level selected.
  9. OH NO WHAT'S THIS PEOPLE SAYING RADIOHEAD WENT RUBBISH WHAT A SURPRISE Radiohead could have brought out another The Bends. Of course they could have. They could have took Oasis' route of releasing essentially the same album over and over again, and they'd be as huge now as they ever were. Radiohead refused to become derivative and brought out hard to love album after hard to love album. Many disliked OK Computer at first as it isn't like The Bends, before realising it's the greatest thing they'd done. I can never decide if my favourite is OK Computer or Kid A. Kid A is the ultimate 'grower' album. I certainly didn't hate it at first, but it didn't strike me as anything special. Over time the tracks revealed themselves to me, Idioteque and Everthing In Its Right Place first, then Morning Bell and The National Anthem (except for the Jazz bit), Optimistic, and soon enough the absolutely beautiful How To Disappear Completely along with Motion Picture Soundtrack. The strange, proggy Kid A was one of the last but it's a truly fantastic song. Lastly, I grew to love the jazz bit on The National Anthem. Kid A is a stupidly good album. As an aside, I rarely listen to The Bends anymore, unlike the above 2 mentioned albums, the songs don't stand up to masses of listens.
  10. Thinking about it, there's only one album I've listened to more this year, and that's Warmer Corners by The Lucksmiths.
  11. That's the one I meant! I find the album as a whole a little patchy though. From the latest album, the song where he says he's a perfect piece of ass is fantastic. New tracks that didn;t hit me before carry on revealing themself to me.
  12. I LOVE THE NATIONAL! Yes, you read correctly, I do. Their last album is their finest, but my favourite songs are Fashion Coat and that other one I can't remember the name of from their second album - you know the one, Sanjay!
  13. My favourite XBox game, if not ever. I'm easily frustrated in games, and I came very close to giving up in some of the less forgiving sections, but I'm so glad I stuck with it. The beauty is the way the game effectively teaches you how to fight brilliantly effectively, slowly. The black ninjas were the defining point for me. I swore the game was unbalanced, unfair, poorly designed. A few hours later I was fighting them and losing no health at all - immensely satisfying. It could be compared to learning guitar. It may not be obvious as you play how much you are progressing, but go back to the start and you amaze yourself with how you've come on. After finishing the game I went back and finished the first few chapters - which I'd had so much trouble with the first time around - without dying. I think you captured most of this in your review, so well done.
  14. You're right, it's an EP. But it's the length of an album, and I prefer it to all of their albums. I got it from Oink.
  15. I can't wait to see the - ultra experimental tent based - other half of the gig too.
  16. Explosions' new album - The Rescue - is freaking excellent. A Post rock album where I didn't get bored once? Yes please, Daddy!
  17. I was transfixed but ultimately thought it was dull. I've never seen the TV series, just went on others' recommendation. Not a bad film, just not particularly memorable.

    Arctic Monkeys

    They're not quite up there with the Paddingtons as being Libs rip offs, but they're not far off. You're just in denial because you don't like Pete Doherty.
  19. Mogwai - Kids Will Be Skeletons. My favourite instrumental.
  20. I haven't played for AGES. That's probably more down to me being a bit crap though. Either that, or the unnecessary lag on a 2 meg connection.
  21. Haha, that was absolutely brilliant.
