Re: I already have a PC

Handful - there are a LOT of exclusives.

So you miss Uncharted, Killzone, Infamous, Gran Turismo, Resistance, Motorstorm, Little Big Planet, Journey, Ratchet & Clank, God of War, and a lot more. And if you are in the other camp Halo and GEARs of War.

Well over 25 above just for PS3 over 10 are over 90% on Metacritic of my list (eg no Wipeout)

Re: Meh, too early for PS4

I know what you mean but my back log is NOT that big, but I have not bought that many games.

But then as an example I could not be bothered with Skyrim yet my children do. Yet they don't like Fallout 3. CoD and BF do not interest me. Used to like Assassins Creed but lost interest during the 2011 game.

I am the only one to finish Dishono(u)red (twice and I have no kill - so cool).

I tend to run 2 games, one for SP and one for MP, currently they are Portal 2 with Sixence patch for Move and Killzone 3.

Probably get Far Cry 3 at some stage.

The Last Of Us and Bioshock Infinite are my two for the early part of this year.

Re: GT5 Infamous 3

Yes I do and I lost all interest by then.

Howver it is about the right time span and the rumours are coming from that directions

As to Sucker Punch - I think new IP is more likely.

Also I can't see all of MM doing Tearaway

Will buy when

A must buy game appears on it.

I hope it still supports all the PS3 controllers, that would help.

But rumoured launch games may force a purchase. Explain what Naughty Dog other team and Guerilla Amsterdam have been up to? NDs other team should be near with another Uncharted but no noise even - unless this is due to TLOU delays. And Guerilla, I know Cambridge are working on a Vita game, but the main office, two years since KZ3, should have seen a KZ4 at last years E3, this to me says KZ4 is a launch game.

And of course Polyphony has mentioned GT6 is well under way.

I am going for the 4 big launch games are

Uncharted 4

Killzone 4

Gran Turismo 6

The Last Guardian

<------ Red Dust

Re: @Richard 12

Never overestimate the intelligence of the voters, I have the worrying thoughts that we will end up with PM Millipeed and Chancellor Bollocks.

As to Lib Dems - I think they had a huge shock, but they did need to see that being in charge means you have to be serious.

I will admit to wondering if the wrong David got the job.

But if you compare the three main party leaders, only Cameron is not a complete joke, and that is struggling!

I remember this from the first time, just a parody of a TOTP show.

The Tweenies were a very good preschool programme.

What is worrying is that I can remember Max, Milo, Fizz, Jake, Bella, and of course Doodles. My boys called their sister Bossy Bella after her.

I owned a 4 3/4 year old German car 7 years ago, I still have it.

The very large British bit is lasting very well, the steering and suspension bits though are consumables.

I think some of the best German made cars used to be from Russelheim

Re: Wait for the Jag

Actually as someone who needs a biggish car, the XF appeals to me.

As my current car is nearly 12 - a British engined German car with French gearbox and a British badge I will want to replace it next year, now do I get a Discovery TD5 or Jaguar XF?

Re: More pretend brands

Nissan Sunny

What's one of those? Not a Z car is it?

Does a search, 4wd 2l turbo - sounds rather good. And it has GT-R in the name.

We used to have a member of staff with a Nissan and it was the most liked car in our company.

I would rate the car better with a Nissan badge, it is not like they have a bad image, 370Z and GT-R provide a good image, but I would be too embarrassed to drive a Toyota Lexus or Nissan Infinti. Yet I would be proud of a GT-R

Have they played any games?

Glorify violence - well I have played enough and to be honest they don't, Bulletstorm as an example - that is just an OTT shoot everything that attacks you, simply entertainment, no way are you going to go and shoot things in real life after that.

I play a few other FPS and online gaming is like a bunch of friends paintballing, not real, just fun.

Re: Dogged

We get on well with most neighbours, but a local busybody and her pair of fans are the issue. Her husband is the nearest thing to an idiot around here, but just say my next door neighbour had a visit from armed police, who turned nice when they realised it was someone they knew and a bogus call.

Would you tell people that you used your work IT system to see what was happening with all your neighbours, then mention that person x is on meals on wheels?

Then would you post defamitory crap on an open Faceache page?

Mr Fan is just quiet, used to moan to me all the time, about Busy Body and her husband, suddenly he is their friend and blanks me, his wife is just rude, tempted to put a note through their door refuting her claims!!!!

Neighbours - who needs them!

Oh good, can I have a couple of neighbours arrested.

Been rude about me on Facebook with open profiles.

I am not a FB person but it was mentioned to me.

I don't speak to them as they are two faced and not right next to us, but someone who doesn't even know me called me an idiot.

The animations were very good, will show to my children tonight.

BTW don't knock our railways too much, there were quite a few very clever people involved.

So we started the tilting trains, worlds fastest steam & Diesel, steam heavy freight locos capable of an easy 90mph, most powerful Diesel in 50s and 60s at less than half the weight of the most powerful US loco, and most recent a heavy freight Diesel specifically designed to out pull the equivalent US design.

B&W TV

I have one, about 1" to 2" screen 1982 model, works on composite only - video camera viewfinder.

To be honest who actually gives a stuff about B&W TV, no one would prefer it, if they really want TV just let them buy a cheap digital TV.

I haven't seen a real B&W TV since Ridge Hill went colour. (My dad was an early adopter)
