Re: Wii failed
How can anyone forget that moment in Mario Kart 64 when you fly through 3D space for miles over a river.
I swear that's where my Vertigo started...
Ahh the student years...
...they were my salad days...
Yes, I'm leaving now.
This is why they don't normally let passengers vent fluid while on the runway.
All too late
for Bruce Banner.
..represents so much. Way more than just an addition to an operating system (zzz please!)
It represented my journey from cave dweller to the hunched keyboard puncher I am now today.
I was 18 when Win95 came out. I saw it in shop windows, the start button brightly waiting for me to press it, and eventually I got to do just that on a PC belonging to a friends Dad.
I couldn't WAIT to have my own Start button.
When I got my own in 1998, I felt I had truly come of age, and also touched the future that Maggie Philbin had endlessly told me about.
XP came along and something was afoot...it had defaulted to a crayon colouring of Start button. Easily remedied mind, but a disconcerting change with age nonetheless - like ear or nose hair.
Win 7 went round. I was again irritated. JUST STOP. Leave the button alone.
Then Win 8. OMG. They only went and did it didn't they. I knew it. OMG Why me. No start button? I'm adrift. My link back to the day when I finally "made it" was gone. I hadn't even been asked. It was like when my parents decided to wallpaper my room, and didn't tell me there would be flowers on my wall. I was back to being 8 years old. No way could I take to that. I hated being 8.
Re: highly dubious
The pasted article relies on Apple having consistent design direction to disprove the validity of the photo.
I don't think they have consistent design direction.
I watch too many silly fims...
Daily EMP in the prison.
Means the staff have to work on paper :-)
Still got those fuzzy horrid trees?
Deary me. That's disappointing.
Toca2 - Bravo
Well played that man. Toca2 was fabulous.
Angry AI and tricky handling. Not seen the like since.
At least there's a light.
I recall working at Epson on customer help desk around the time they released a budget printer with no lights whatsoever.
Even at this great distance those days still seem so dark. (maybe due to lack of lights).

OBD II reader is your friend.
Re: The "pulsing blue dick punch of sadness"
Guy next to me is keeps looking over at me as I'm laughing myself into incontinence.
That user in the video..
..is clearly a crim. Look at how he shakes.
Poor guy hasn't had a hit in hours.
How long before Russia discovers an underwater land-bridge to it.
Just in case.
Misread the title.
Wondered what seven countries Germany, Italy and Japan had decided to bully!
When a flawed process..
..is implemented, sometimes you have to let the process fail for the chiefs to realise.
Bring it on, and lets all watch as "proxy" becomes an every day word.
I did wonder where Fred the Shred would go next.
Good for him diversifying his skill set.
I'd like to pitch in,
but was beaten to it. Well done TCD team.
Maybe change dead to missing?
Lot of rubles in the rubble.
Re: What a cluster F@ck
Why on earth do they need to specify toilet paper colour?
Oh dear. Misread this:
"...sales of 5 million iPhones 5s in the first weekend.. "
Thought I'd missed the latest update - perhaps a music player that says it's playing Taylor Swift, but in actual fact plays Jive Bunny.
Games on Apple? pfft
The desktop Windows platform is the most cost-effective high-end gaming solution.
I can't ever see why I would pay double the price for half the performance and a tenth (guess? much less I bet) of the available games library.
They sure look nice, but the ipad and the macintoshes will not be entering my house anytime soon!
Playability at it's very best
Still worth a visit now and then.
I put it right up there with Unreal Tournament as one of the most playable games of all time.
Might have to get this!
Tend to ignore sequels, and don't have 360 so very pleased and interested to read about this. Sounds like I might have to invest.
I like this.
Don't see the link to physical size, nor efficacy of neuron linkages....
is really loud and has a slimmed down cat. hahahaha. burbleburble pop.
Average speed cameras work for me, so I support their introduction.
iPhone App developers rejoice!
Children Left Unsupervised Horror
Imagine leaving your children to face the naked (oo-er), sharp blade of the web?? Surely not the way to go. In fact, I once used Google to see if it could find obscenity.
I never quite recovered.
