  1. I think I read about using the rocket launcher on the Right Hand so made a point of saving it. What a waste. Fantastic sequence leading up to his appearance though.
  2. They're not calves, they're horses. Anyway - Sega Rally 2.
  3. Been at number one for nine weeks + me not having heard it = Dapple being an official old codger
  4. The Virgin Megastore on Oxford Street has Xbox360 pods upstairs. Apparently you can take the cards in, plug them in and download...stuff. Not quite sure what the 'stuff' is but have been meaning to take a look for a while. I'd imagine that it's nothing that isn't available on live.
  5. That's because in Sony's case they're all blokes aged 15-35. EDIT: Things move pretty quickly round here...
  6. And typing 'fuck' or 'cunt' twice would reset the game... A quick Google finds: "fuck" it says "tut tut, any more of that language and i'm resetting the game" and if you type it again, the game resets "wank" it says "sweaty hands slip off joystick" you can type shit, dick, and some others "fish", the fish jumps out of the sea, pacman makes pacman appear
  7. I had a one-level demo of this, given away with something like The One magazine and absolutely played it to death. Can only think that I couldn't afford to buy the full game...
  8. Quite. Whenever I find mine I'm amazed - comparing against my PSP provides me with one of those 'hasn't technology come a long way' moments. A mate broke mine years ago - breaking the part where the mains adaptor plugs in. Means I'd have to use batteries if I wanted to use it. I never seem to have that many lying around...
  9. There's a story on the BBC about this... http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/6261546.stm Top 10: 1. Legend of Zelda: Ocarina 2. Resident Evil 4 3. Super Mario 64 4. Half Life 2 5. Super Mario World 6. Zelda: A Link to the Past 7. Halo: Combat Evolved 8. Final Fantasy XII 9. Tetris 10. Super Metroid

    Glastonbury 2007

    Fucking bloody bastard mud. I'm never leaving the paved streets of London ever again. Not all bad though. Thursday evening, hanging around in the Green Fields (which, at the time, were still green) was nice. Kasabian, Fatboy Slim, Chas and Dave, bit of DJ Yoda (with David Dickinson on the big screen...), Hybrid and Sasha were all great. As was the Spunky sound system, set up in their clothes stall after hours until 3am. Great way to end the night.
  11. PS1 for me too. It sounded like the future. I remember the first time I heard the PS2 'startup'. So disappointed.
  12. I like this month's Crashlander.
  13. I think when other shows are referred to as 'slow-burners' people often mean it in a negative sense in that they can take a bit of perseverance. The fact that a scene (or even an episode) in The Wire may not necessarily be driving a particular plot point forward doesn't matter at all because it's all just so damn good. I finished season three a couple of weeks back. If there's a TV program that can hold a candle to the final two episodes then I'd very much like to see it. Was good enough to make me cite The Wire as my favourite TV program, knocking The West Wing off it's long-held perch.

    Peep Show

    This reminds me - I'm sure I saw Super Hans* at Tottenham Court Road tube yesterday! *I always thought it was 'Superhands'...Not so, apparently: http://www.channel4.com/entertainment/tv/m.../superhans.html

    Glastonbury 2007

    Did a quick search and couldn't see this posted... http://www.bbc.co.uk/glastonbury/2007/artists/ For me, Friday's line up looks best but so much going on that you can't help but find something you like. I think someone's trying to take me back to 1991 - Ned's Atomic Dustbin, Cud, Ozric Tentacles...WTF?!
  16. His explanation of why it happened is the best thing: "I had just been stuffing my face with a load of jacket potatoes and I felt sick, so I opened my car door to be sick." the singer explained. "Instead of putting my foot on the brake, I put it on the accelerator and it flew back. I must have hit four or five parked cars." Potatoes have a lot to answer for.

    Get the Glass

    In the interests of completion: 'EXACKLEE!'
  18. Not really a fair comparison. Pretty much all magazines / newspapers score reviews regardless of whether they're reviewing film / music / theatre or games. Edge are hardly out on their own here. Maybe what you could do is get a friend to Tippex out the scores for you before you read the reviews.
  19. This thread has reminded me of going to the Big Love festival in 1996. Am pretty sure it was there that I went into the hardcore tent (always the first to kick off)...where Mr Motivator was MCing.
  20. This year, as with every year since it was released, it has to be Depeche Mode - Violator.
