So is it a cheap newer car or an expensive older car?
Playing with your self
Isn't that a bit dangerous when driving?
As to taking pictures while driving, You are boring, outside is more interesting.
That was more of a worry.
Why does Lucky Goldstar need to advertise on your TV?
My own TV is supposedly smart (actually not very) so simply no network cable is plugged in.
I know someone with a Samsung smart TV, again not very.
Can you see Oxo tower from there?
It would be funny if you could!
Dirk Benedict original or Katee Sackoff off the TPBTV* remake
* Well it was after they stopped showing them on Freeview.
My own approach is send fuel or boosters for the return flight a few years before on a slow flight and use them when you get there.
Don't forget the otehr two
Not fair just to pick on Cameron.
Millipede is feeling left out, as is Compo's friend

How do I make it look like it does now?
That looks horrid!
Re: Take the figures with a pinch of salt
And the voice control is not that good on X1 either, turns off your TV when you ask it to turn on.
Switches to another profile it they walk in front of the camera.
Quits a game and does not save if it miss hears your TV channel name for a game name.
None are perfect.
Re: Hardware non-issues - Graphics
Actually it depends on the studio.
RSX is quick but limited in power, but to make up for the power difference it is able to communicate with the Cell using a high speed bus.
So Xenos is more powerful but slower than the RSX, the Cell more powerful than the Xenon, but PS3 uses a high speed parallel bus to link them.
Since the SPUs can be used for graphics, it means that it is possible for PS3 to pump out better graphics. But 360 is easier to code for.
I still find the quality amazing on such games as Uncharted 2 & 3, The Last Of Us and Killzone 3.
Also not many multiplatforms are that different, usually it is a bit here a bit there, draw distances to one and textures to the other.
Re: Keyboard mouse yawn
Well after playing KBM & controller then have their plus and minus points.
Mouse better to aim.
Controller better to move around.
Motion controls were a good idea with FPSs on Wii and PS3 with Move.
Pity they have been abandoned for the new generation and yes Guerilla Games I am pointing at you!
32" CRT and a large screen LCD
Re: Recent Adverts on US TV...
Err PC gaming comes under Steam
Yes Resistance 3, Portal 2 and Bioshock Infinite
Hmm just bought the DLC for BI
Re: Dreamcast & Nintendo/Sony
Dreamcast was pretty good, but was a bit gimmicky.
Could have done with twin sticks, the plug in cartridge is a bit weird, GDROM is limited compared to DVD.
Was good graphics, definately same generation as PS2.
Sony entered the market after Nintendo went Philips for the CD drive and Sony had developed one for Nintendo.
I think MS entered partly due to the Dreamcast running Windows CE.
Re: Custom Chips
Here are 4 custom console chips which are well known, Cell, RSX, Xenon, Xenos
Re: Sony TV
Why is it a mistake, I genuinely found the picture was better than other LCD TVs on multiple sources.
Other choice would have been a Pioneer plasma but they are too expensive.
My TV was getting ***** reviews!
Re: COD - killing
Go play Dishono(u)red with a no kill run.
Now that is an achievement
Re: Shooting people
Well I like SciFi setting ones!
And to be honest even in games I do not like killing unarmed characters, if they are shooting me - OK
Re: Expensive TV
I LIKE my TV, it gets a lot of use so may as well have one I like.
Some people buy expensive cars (I do when they are cheap), some people go and spend a fortune on sports team tickets. I like a really good TV, put a really good film on - like the cinema.
The CRT was a Wega, the LCD a W series Bravia
And I have seen enough cheap LCD TVs to last me. I tested lots until I found the one I liked,
Want to see bad - S series Bravia - pretty shoddy
Phone gaming, no we want buttons.
£400 on a TV
For a main living room TV maybe 25 years ago.
But prices are more since then.
32" widescreen CRT IDTV was over £1000
My LCD panel is over £1500
Before you criticise I have owned a total of 5 TVs in my life including 2 portables
Re: A fool and his money...
Or even older.
I had a pong type game when I was small.
We do not play COD.
COD is for people who cannot handle more tactical shooters.
Personally I am excited and nervous for Killzone Shadowfall.
Excited because it is an FPS I can actually play.
Nervous because I got into top 2000 using Move and they don't support it any more.
As for PS+, already have that, and still wrking through the backlog of games.
Wow that looks good!
And it is free!
Reminds me of a lot of older games like Defender, Andes Attack and a bit of Xenon2
I always thought it was another term for w@nking
That is the model name of a rather popular digger!
Re: I've had cheaper prostitutes !
That's better value thanks
Seen some multiplayer footage on a XB1 and to be honest it looked all rather pants.
So called next generation but still 720p.
More partical effects and better graphics on some of this generations games,
I am just glad I never bought into the hype.
Re: I've had cheaper prostitutes !
£19 for 90 minutes!
I will settle for 50 or so for £4 (Far Cry 3 on PS+)
120 for £20 (Fallout NV with all DLC)
1000 for @ £70 (Killzone 3, multi player DLC, Navigation controller also used with a few other games)
100 for £15 (ME2 in a sale)
Even got 70 hours or so out of TLOU so far
Re: Good review
Well there are a few of us at work who look at modern new cars and think - no they are ugly.
How many normal cars can now be called nice looking?
I do think the older 318is 2 door looks nice still, I can see one parked next to my big saloon.
Perhaps some reclassification required
We all know Dolphins are pretty clever, not too far behind the average human. And ahead of the average chav.. And a long long way ahead of food animals. (Cattle are pretty thick)
Yet it is illegal to hunt chavs for food so why are Dolphins not protected by law? Why should a sentient animal be hunted like this?
I would also rather that chavs were used as pet food rather than intelligent animals.
TBH I would also include the great apes in the protection.
Coffee yuk - give me tea or something alcoholic
Never understood how people can drink the stuff.
Job for GCHQ and co
Find them, then call Hereford. Gives GCHQ something to do. And bit of training for the SAS.
Re: Another win for the open-source world
Actually Sony are rumoured to be a major donator
I will have to set set my daughter
onto these no direction losers.
Mind you can;t be too bright she tried opening our front door with a sonic screwdriver but we all know they do not do wood
Re: it only does everything
But better for playing games
RE : AC 11:03
Well after seeing some XB1 multiplayer of CoD Ghosts I am of the opinion that Killzone 3 multiplayer is better graphically.
There are always things going on (various levels have a MAWLR in them), various drop ships, bullet holes remain there all game.
Still amazingly good looking after nearly 3 years.
Will it play games?
That is my main concern.
Oh and it will play games not available anywhere else.
Roll on Naughty Dog
Re: Clash of the titans
Well get Sigourney and Arnold in to help.
On the loo
Now that one was a pain.
Saturday, sitting on the bog, ring ring.
Phone call for me, phone is just outside the loo and the cable is just long enough.
My boss soon rang off when he heard the noises.
Re: There are so many things you can do in a bathroom
We don't have a bath room at work, but the closed down business next door sold baths and one was dumped in our entrance way.
No I have never workded while sitting in a bath.
Re: XP 2.0?
Great, you cannot run full screen MS DOS .exes
2 huge fails.
Re: Missing from the list: (in no particular order)
I found Midnight irritating, Waters of Mars annoying.
I liked 42
Re: @Oh Bother
Turn Left is my favourite from RTD
Been there done that PS2 and Eye Toy
Re: Again with the PS4 ad?
Have you thought that the game companies are in one big industry and can get on with each other?
Sony's head of studios Shuhei Yoshida loves Nintendo games and has two Wii Us
Xbox manager Larry unpronoucable surname loves Naughty Dog games.
A lot of Naughty Dog staff play Halo and a lot of Bungie Staff play Uncharted.
I have wondered.
Would ridding the world of the Kim family help?
And I expect the army is a bit useless.
