RE: So... what are you playing just now?

Wipeout HD is brilliant. Well worth 12 quid. Its `that game`, the one you stick on to justify how much your HDTV cost. It looks stunning.

LBP is actually pretty good. Its a funny one, though. Its a big physics game, a total playground. The underlying platform game is ok, but movement from movement planes can be a bit annoying. The real meat is the level designer which, technically, gives you access to unlimited content.

At the moment its just level after level of rocket cars, but there should be some good stuff soon.

And the story mode is narrated by stephen fry.

I bought Spore but got really bored of it very quickly.

RE: Is height an issue?

You could make Jimmy Cranky look like Lulu with that amount of plastic surgery.

And she would definitely be smaller than you.

RE: Is height an issue?

Im 6`3", so if my partner was taller than me i would ship her off to the WNBA.

I did go out with someone who played netball at county level who was 6` before. She quite liked it because she normally went out with smaller guys and it made her feel a bit awkward. In her heels we were the same height, which was a bit odd, but it was pretty cool.

If I were a short arse, i would probably take what I could get. My Brother-In-Law had to wear cuban heels and his wife wore flats at their wedding. if he held out for anyone shorter than him, he would be looking at a time bandit.

RE: BSG Season 4-watch out!!

Its worth watching exactly half of them. The other half, annoyingly, are basically padding.

He actually comes off as the hero of the piece as he does loads of brave stuff without the backup of being unkillable.

RE: Soldier is refused room at hotel

Constant references to google, forums and the internet always make me take emails seriously.

I think this has legs, I really do.

RE: Google Chrome browser

Yeah. Anyone who uses a CMS to update their website could be caught out.

Its unlikely, but I wouldnt roll it out to our guys just yet. The MD would s*** a brick if any of our artwork turned up on google.

The sad thing is, the Tim Burton one looked like being the most interesting one out of the lot.

RE: Another Superhero reboot?

They painted themselves into a corner, though.

Im fairly glad there isnt going to be a direct sequel as I cant see how a story revolving around Superman jnr or a broody superman breaking up lois marriage would have been good in any way, shape or form.

RE: Google Chrome browser

Seems pretty good. Ive been using safari and a mac for ages, so I was used to some of the design methods.

I can see it being a bit jarring if you are a maximised window, toolbar kind of person.

I had a quick check to see if it would work with our website and a few of our internal applications. It does, so happy days there. Its also very fast.

It seems ok. i think once the nerds start getting the widgets out it will certainly be a worthy alternative to FF and will probably start eating into its market share.

And its another browser that this forums BB code doesnt work on ;)

RE: Another Superhero reboot?

I dont think it was unfairly shat on at all. A 2 odd hour cover version is just such a wasted opportunity.

I know its not all about the CGI, but with modern effects they could have made it absolutely spectacular, rather than concentrating on making Superman a home wrecking, emo dick face.

RE: Mobile Broadband - can someone tell me about it?

Ive got a couple of O2 dongles with work and they are pretty good. They dont pull up any trees, but they are perfectly servicable for browsing (as long as you block flash content) and emails.

Its a 3G dongle so its only as much use as your mobile signal. I went with O2 as their data network seems to be the most robust and widespread but ymmv.

Check 3G coverage of your area before you commit to anything.

Oh, its worth mentioning that the O2 dongle will log onto any cloud hotspots rather than use 3g, so you get that for free, so, say if you are in a mcdonalds or something, it will log you onto their wifi service, rather than use your 3g usage automatically.

My psychic powers are telling me that you have accidentally turned on the `stereo` setting.

RE: Warning, have you got anything on series link on Sky One?

My series link for atlantis seems fine.

Perhaps its because it was a special rather than part of the main series?

Fwiw, it was actually really good.

It`s from a 10 odd year old viz comic strip. By the same guy who did the vibrating bum faced goats. Only it`s funnier with pictures...

RE: GTA IV delayed until 2008!

They built a great looking city, but forgot to fill it with anything.

There is absolutely sod all on the last two islands, the third one especially.

RE: GTA IV delayed until 2008!

Sadly, all the draw distance in the world cant compensate for the fact that the game still hasnt fixed flaws that have been there since GTA3 and its as boring as f***.

Do you mean the kit lense with the 400d? Its not the best lense, but have managed to have some reasonable fun with it!


Yeah, its good for getting to grips with but you will notice the difference as soon as you whack another lens on.

The standard plastic lens kit isnt great.

The photos seem to come out quite soft.

RE: Any decent Wii deals around at the moment?

No. Its unlikely you will notice the difference.

But be warned. Its a total triggers broom of a console. If your son has mates over regularly, its 50 quid per controller, up to 4 controllers, then theres the Wii Fit, then theres the zapper.....

If you like lots of expensive plastic in your house, youve got the right console.

RE: Anyone know much about Digital SLRs?

Ah, right. Yeah the DSLRs are great for that. I hold her in one hand and stick it on full auto in the other and just snap away. She pulls some great faces.

RE: Anyone know much about Digital SLRs?

You would be better getting something like the canon 400d from the canon refurb shop on ebay. Then you have a better range of lenses and accessories if you get on with it. I would be reluctant to get a DSLR from anyone other than Nikon or Canon in this country.

http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Canon-Outlet

To be perfectly honest, though, I take my point and squirt most places as its a faff carrying around the big boy.

But, yeah, the results are better. That pic of my daughter yawning on facebook was taken on a Canon EOS 20d and you can see how much better it is than the ones taken on the cybershot, even though its compressed to f***.

So, yeah, basically DSLRs take very, very good pictures, but you cant stick it in your shirt pocket for a night down the boozer. Plus you need to bother your arse to learn how to use it.

Or at least learn how to tart the photos up in photoshop.
