Re: 500 quid a year?
Films - I wait until the BDs are cheap in supermarkets
Sport - can't afford to do it, very expensive hobby, I looked into it once (I had a suitable car as well), that reminds me I still need an LNB for Astra1 to get RTL for F1
Re: "Luckily there is on Freeview."
Hmm, well I have had digital TV since 1999, got an aerial on a main transmitter whereas most neighbours are on sky.
Until switchover I officially had no Freeview reception despite being able to get Ondigital (I still have the CAM and card).
No matter where I have been I have been able to get digital TV in our caravan, using a Pace Twin (POS)
BTW do NOT buy anything Pace - lack of software support, hardware can take DSO but the software can't, I have phoned them up but they are not interested. So I always advise Humax now.
How many are Humax HDRs?
Most used Freesat box among people I know.
Re: Red Dwarf
Re: No Dave!
Luckily there is on Freeview.
But would make life easier it is was on Freesat as well.
Some of those are Bristol Siddley
I want Kratos!
Re: Here's what I want to see
Sounds like the long missed channel BBC Knowleage
FOAD mobile telephony
I WANT my HD broadcasting
Re: The Big Yin
Cheap, understood,, and usable with a carrier.
That sounds just like what we had until recently.
RIP Sea Harriers
Re: Jason 7 - Confusing
Are you from Worcestershire (ie is he your MP)
How many MPs?
I thought Peter Luff was retiring. Was quite a good MP though. Better than the fox hunting obsessed, post office closer we used to have next door, even worse, some people I work with had Waquie Jaquie.
Why the love for all the US aircraft?
What is so special about F16 and F18 compared to the European industry?
Re: Dear USA: You make your laws; we'll make ours.
Work - the database server we use, now owned by a German company, compiler - US based but Germans work on it as well.
Home - some games, US based but multinational workers incluidng high up British employees.
Not much really, I think I would miss Naughty Dog the most.
I want one
But was working out if it can go long enough.
Make your own model railway bits, but can I do a whole body shell?
Re: More to the point...
I have seen a few.
Early good, late total shit
Could be good could be crap
Could be like the CGI Captain Scarlet killed by being on a shit TV programme. The reboot was rather good and I remember the original.
Or it could be like the film I have seen enough clips of to KNOW it will be crap, I do not dare see it.
Main issue it is on shITV with their new moronic stupid permanent onscreen logo of utv.
Re: that and - lead free solder
Can the downvoter explain why lead free solder is better?
Search on lead free solder cracking, also whiskering.
Its problem is this, you have to buy a game for each user, not just one copy.
Take example the Half Life series. I bought it a while ago, now my boys want to play it, I have to buy it twice, once for each account if I don't want them playing on my account.
They only get Steam games when they are stupidly cheap.
There are similar lockouts with Vitas, you can only use the online code with one account/Vita this meant we spent ages looking for the cheapest LBPV
50 and still gaming.
As to TVs I can still plug a 1982 VCR into a 2009 TV if I want
Re: that and - lead free solder
The biggest device killer of the decade, no flexability as they heat = solder joints breaking
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: I threatened my boys
That if they mess about I will go into it on their login so it shows on their trophy list!
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
Gran Turismo 6
The Last Guardian
<------ Red Dust
What about UK?
Would you be automatically guilty of crimes?
Re: Prof Brian
Getting a bit too everywhere, seems to be on everything
He always seems to be making speeches.
Well he does on that new sitcom and also in my favourite multiplayer game
Re: I can't believe nobody has linked to this yet.
Got a couple wrong, silly ones but I am glad not knowing AntOrDec was correct, they need A or D tattooing on their foreheads.
Tray - I put help clean up!
Re: I had a look
New test passed but one, I said 21 not 18 for Jury
Old test - I knew one.
Who gives a toss about the number of constituencies (no Too Many option)?
As to Farage - not filled with confidence about him either.
Is David Davies still available?
Re: Which of the following makes for gormless TV?
1 & 2 but you forgot farm
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 am crap at history
Don't remember dates but of course I know who Nelson is. And what is significant about Trafalgar. And Waterloo.
Anything involving dates would stuff me!
What about SOTC and TLG?
You keep on about ICO what about Shadow of the Collossus and of course where is The Last Guardian?
Well I like them as Cornish Rattler and Westons Stowford Press
Re: Anything to stop TV companies buying it?
Might be to you but Con/Lib is perfectly fine for me
Anything to stop TV companies buying it?
Just thinking about this, what would stop say Virgin or Sky buying a channel and using it for TV?
Re: setting a worrying precedent?
I searched it and got your post!
And it is worrying I know what you mean!
As to complaints, I think the average child doesn't care and the average parent is having a laugh
Re: Super men
Do ride a bike.
With a large engine and a three figure power output.
Re: Wait for the Jag @MJI
Someone at work has a Dakar kit car, Discovery chassis kit car, no issues in the snow.
My main things are.
Large (5 people), comfy, can tow, interesting, then either handling or can get places.
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
Or a 70l gas tank full of propane.
Yes my LPG ECU has blown an injector channel.
<-- a red car, mine is silver but this is a car review
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
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.
3 year old GT-R however
A lot better than wrong wheel drive thankyou!
More pretend brands
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
re. the spectacularly refined chap
Actually some of these wallpaper programmes have a lot of viewers.
I like Cornwall with Caroline Quentin as it is filmed in an area I know VERY well (relations and holidays), I never miss Great British Railway Journeys, but never watch soaps
