  1. Would love to play Thursday. [ but note I think I've managed one whole game of this ]
  2. We sorted emule out. 10, 11 and 12 are now downloading.
  3. That's what makes the Sopranos. It's consistently excellent. (Apart from one episode in Series 5, which is merely ok).
  4. Bastard. I'm up to Unidentified Black Males in a minute. Emule appears to have died out on our filesharing PC
  5. You missed the ritual disembowelling during which you have to promise your soul to Satan so that he doesn't get too angry at the removal of his most faithful servant.
  6. PS3 market. Like a farmers' market, but with japanese electronics rather than East Anglican tomatoes.
  7. Ouch. 8690. 7470 on medium. Probably time to change my sig.
  8. It matters because it means that the characters *look* lived in. Which, for example, in your average drama they perhaps don't. It gives the show a grounding in reality that, perhaps, other shows lack. -- (iii) The use of multiple plot lines that come together over the course of several seasons. (iv) The use of television clips (v) The use of certain motifs throughout (ducks, horses, bears, dogs...) (vi) The dialogue. (vii) The photography.
  9. Particularly since the songs are tailored to the teenie girl audience and not the elvis-is-high-pitched male contingent.

    Yes - just do the above because otherwise you end up with loads of FAQ files.
  11. No. You're wrong. If you've got a reasonably deep voice then it simply isn't feasible to sing even Eternal Flame above middle C. The octave thing is *necessary*. But hey - *how* you play is up to you. You could just hum everything, but where's the fun in that?
  12. Read the thread. Or search for Cacky, Strider, Mart TM. There's no value for everyone else in *repeating what has already happened* and *arguing about it all over again*.
  13. Easy lets you sing miles out of key. Medium lets you sing a bit out of key (a semitone or maybe a tone). Hard doesn't. They all let you switch octaves at will. There's a duet / battle mode in which two of you sing together (but singing the same line - there's no harmony involved) - spreading the embarrassment out a bit more widely.
  14. Eyetoy => games that even non-gamers will play. I haven't met *anyone* who won't at least give it a go, if only out of curiosity. And once they have a go, they have fun. That's why it's important. And that's why, regardless of sales or how well it works technically, it's a success.
  15. Don't you all find that Easy is just, well, FAR too forgiving of really appalling singing?
  16. I think that is a redundant comment.
  17. (i) Older actors. Who can act. (ii) Subject matter - drama derives from conflict, and there's no need to artificially create spurious conflict when you're writing about the mob.
  18. It's fantastic. I've only got three episodes of Season 5 left though My housemate's been watching the previous series on DVD over the last three weeks. It really *does* stand up to repeat viewing too.

    Just remember the -memoriam switch when using google
  20. No - the silence tells you that in the 3 hours since your last post either: (i) No-one from Games TM has read the thread (which, seeing as it's a Sunday, and the content of the thread hasn't been particularly pleasant wouldn't surprise anyone in the slightest). (ii) They've read it, and decided to stick to their "we won't comment on this sort of issue in public" line. Which, again, is completely reasonable. Drawing conclusions like the above is just silly. I've been set an ultimatum! On an internet forum! Argghhhh!

    That's lovely. I tried one of the Onslaught ones - BIG desert (A something?). There's a technique where you sit in a tank and just blast the powercore from miles away. Not keen on it at all. The Ghost Town DM level is great too.
  22. On the other hand, we shouldn't overstate this. It's nowhere near as bad as the travesty which was that arm waving music "game" on the Eyetoy:Play disc.
  23. I'm tempted by the metal dance mat. Despite the fact I know I won't use it much. None of my so-called-friends seems to understand why you'd want to play Singstar.
