Sega’s Out Run: Even better than the wheel thing

Jules75

An All Time Favourite

With out a doubt Outrun is one of my all time favourite games. I even enjoyed the ZX Spectrum version with it's separate audio tape. I hate to think how much money and school time I spent playing the game in the arcade though. A true classic.

Anyone done a browser version yet?

Everything's going to be all white: Google Nexus 5 mobe expected Friday

It can't come soon enough..

I can't wait to ditch my iPhone 4 with iOS 7 for the latest droid handset. iOS 7 and iTunes 11 were the final nail in the coffin for my Apple experience.

BOYLE and BONG: The secret story of my OLYMPIC TRIUMPH

Re: Irvine Welsh...

I'm currently reading the Trainspotting prequel - "Skag Boys". Good stuff so far. (Also by Irvine Welsh).

Re: Irvine Welsh...

Nope, Irvine Welsh wrote it, Danny Boyle directed it and John Hodge wrote the screenplay.

Fair enough

Can't say fairer than that.

Forza 4

Was a massive GT5 fan...

I was uber excited about GT5 having played all the previous titles, but by the time it was eventually released I couldn't help but feel let down. It takes an age to load, the menu system is overly complicated and frankly it's just a little boring now. It looks amazing, visually, but just a bit dull.

A couple of days ago I downloaded a demo of Forza 4 (something I probably wouldn't have bothered with as I was a GT fan) and was very surprised about how much I liked it. I'll be now picking up a copy and GT5 will be relegated to the cupboard.

Videogames caused riots says plod

It's not computer games....

.... it's rap music. Or is it rave music. No, hang on, it's rock and roll.

For every generation, something else is blamed on social disorder. C'mon, the issues here are a lot deeper than video game usage.

I believe social networks were being blamed this morning as well.

The Lord of the Rings Trilogy: Blu-ray extended edition

Go

Time to double dip

I already own the extended trilogy on DVD, and as a rule I won't double dip on movies I already own on DVD, but this BR conversion has to be the exception.

I actually watched all three extended movies back to back once, and it was enjoyable but hard going. I think with these even longer versions, I'll have to split it over a few days.

The one trouble with the BBC.

I love the BBC. I think it's good value for money and it does some great programmes. However, my only gripe is that because of the way it is funded, everyone seems to think they have an opinion on how it should be run and what programms should be shown. Everyone and their dog, along with their beliefs believes they are either under reprsented or not represented at all. this is a classic example of this.

Apple purges drunk-driving apps

Only the really stupid....

.... would drink drive, and you would have to be the worlds biggest idiot to then rely on a app to avoid the police.

Sony PlayStation Network vs MS Xbox Live

A Fair Review

I tend to agree with the author. XBL wins it for me purely because of the simplicity of the online gaming experience.

I am lucky though, I own both PS3 and XBL so I don't have to make a choice. :-)

Ryanair requires web check-in, shuts down website

Jules75

Agree with Mark 65

Why anyone bothers with Pikey Air I don't know. BA flights are (most of the time) well priced and competitive. I used to have to travel to Exeter from Glasgow a lot and FlyMaybe flights would cost £180! Hardly budget prices. It was cheaper for me to go to Paris.

Anyway, personally I'd rather pay a fair price for a flight than 99p plus bolt ons, restrictions, penalties and being treated like a problem rather than a customer.

UMD Games

I wonder how they will manage all the back catalogue of games? I have a quite a few UMD games for my original PSP, so if I was to buy a new PSP Go, how would I use them?

Intempo Rebel DJ and ad-zapping FM radio

Device in reverse!

I agree with Stephen. I like the DJs like Chris Moyles, Scott Mills etc. It's that crud music they have to play that drives me up the wall!

Don't shed any tears for Pandora

Jules75
Thumb Down

A great shame

I think it's a great shame this has happened. I found it a wonderful "tool" to discovering new music. Thanks to Pandora I discovered that I liked the music of David Bowie. I promptly went out and bought some of his music.

So, as far as I can see, it's the music companies themselves are loosing out. Better to have a %% of something rather than 100% of nothing.

Sony: we'll have sold 132m PS2s by 31 March 08

It's true - well for me anyway

The PS2 was my first DVD player and my only one for sometime. It was a great introduction to the format. It's the same story for my PS3. It's a fantastic BR player, and if you compare it to other BR stand alone players, it's a bargain considering you get a next gen games machine.

And as for the games on the PS2, well, how long have you got...
