Obligatory Simpsons Reference
I call the big one "Bitey"
Ha! Well it was all your fault.
A cunning plan indeed, but WHO USES QR CODES?!
I have a feeling that this is going to tank. I hope i'm wrong.
I remember getting mine in the post, loving the design of the handset and then being completely underwhelmed when I powered it up and started using the thing. The OS was slow, looked dreadful and felt rather out of date. Even at the time.
Although the next phone I had was the Nokia N70, and the V3 p***ed all over that Finland Steamer from a great height.
Re: Secondlife Is still Alive.
There's always one
Re: Dark Souls
Yes... It can be really difficult and frustrating at times, but it's down to you to observe what you're doing wrong, and improve your strategy. Rarely does it feel like the game is being 'cheap' when dishing out death.
The respawning of enemies is completely intentional. The game wouldn't be so difficult, and yet so damn satisfying if you could stroll back to the boss after defeat. Things get a touch easier if you manage to summon help from other gamers online though!
It's definitely not a game for everyone, but Dark Souls and it's predecessor are easily my favourites of this generation and jumped straight into my top-five games of all time. Love them!
Re: So Smart TV
They are a similar shade of brown, but Smart TV doesn't make you go cross eyed
Couldn't agree more with this article. My friend bought a new Samsung Smart TV and we connected it to the net and proceeded to try to install some apps. Everything was so clunky and slow, and text entry using a remote is a royal pain in the arse.
Maybe we're all spoilt with the superb experience offered by mobiles / tablets these days, but TV manufacturers have a lot of catching up to do
Re: On the one hand
I could be totally wrong, but I suspect that if wages rose significantly, then house prices would also gallop upwards again. The situation is bonkers.
I'll tell you what's annoying about Facebook at the moment. The news feed is full of stupid chain pictures that friends have shared - such as a photograph of two puppies, accompanied by something like "Click like if you luvs dogs too, lolz"
Re: Are you sure?
Any company that runs Flash ads that jump out of the screen, obstructing the article i'm trying to read, get instantly added to my boycott list
I was thinking the same thing. After i'd stopped laughing!
I bailed out of that one after three hours
I'm sticking with my iPhone for a while, but I did have a play with a Windows device in an Orange shop, and actually quite liked it. The interface is novel and good looking and it did zip along at a fair pace too (although if it's like Windows PC's it will slow down considerably after three months!). Good effort I'd say
Don't let the difficulty put you off - it is usually your own fault you died for the nth time. You just have to take a defensive, strategic stance, rather than stride in swinging-like-it's-Golden-Axe.
But you'll still die. And yet keep coming back for another go.
Can't help you on the story though - DS has a minimal plot as far as I can tell so far. I do like the setting, characters and atmosphere however. It's very european in that sense, which is a relief having grown tired of the usual JRPG guff.
Loved Demon's Souls.
And am delighted with this. Although I think it might be even more difficult!
It can't be enjoyed as part of a calorie controlled diet.
"...phallic-shaped weapons of ass destruction"
I'm pretty sure anything with the word Euro in its name ends up being a colossal waste of money
It's brilliant, but I can see why some might not like it. If you have patience and like a challenge (and don't mind dying alot to begin with) then go for it!
Not the Web 2.0 Sphere!!!
Wow. Just wow.
Please, please, please...
Have Chaos included as part of the collection. That's the only game I'll ever need
The Other Steve
"If you pay money for a Mac, Steve Jobs sends flying monkeys to flash mob bukakke you."
Well done, that's the funniest thing i've read for ages
for the Father Ted reference. Careful now.
Eazy-E, Ice Cube, et-al
Said it best.
I find IE's slow speed and tendency to freeze altogether, the best reasons to switch*. I have had several friends complain that their internet isn't working very well, or that the connection is pathetic. I then ask them to try out Chrome and they are bowled over by how quick it is!
*Having built a few websites in my time, I also harbour a bit of a grudge against it - you can guarantee that at testing stage IE won't be playing nicely...
It is annoying. I also would like to repeatedly headbutt the media-type who came up with shortening celebrity / couple names - SuBo, KFed, JEdward, BrAngelina...Grrrrr
People should be careful what they wish for - video playback is going to end up a right mess if Flash dies.
Just installed on my 3GS. Jumping between windows seems a bit snappier now, the Folders work quite nicely (will have a proper mess with them later!), and I really like the new wallpaper setting. Nice update
Geo Defence is already here, so a shout for Puzzle Quest and also Bookworm
Just seen some pictures, and she is smokin'. Well done, Sinclair fella.
That's exactly why this is such a stupid idea, totally open to abuse
Doubt i'll be buying one...
But i'm starting to see good reasons for its existence (ie: not just a massive iPhone, minus the Phone bit) and can imagine a strong market for it. Love or hate Apple, they're one of the few tech companies capable of pushing innovation to the mainstream
I was with you
Until about halfway down the post, sorry!
We all gonna diiiiiieeeeeeeeeee
"the better ones use Windows XP, where things aren't quite as shit slow and retarded in the Operating System, where designers who know and want better workflow and productivity use a far better richer platform..."
Have you ever actually used OSX?
Morse and Lewis, Daddy Cool, Zombie Dave, Phoning Honey, and the Rapping Shoe. Damn, I need some surrealism back in my life
Haven't been interested since they dropped Digitiser
It was a good car - when it actually worked! And I loved the styling. Unfortunately, it was a total drain on my finances as problem after problem cropped up, and every time I went out in it, I was awaiting the next issue. Two years I put up with that feeling!
I wish you luck with yours, but your fail should be directed at Renault for releasing such a bugged car - they may have sorted out some of these flaws in later revisions of the Megane, but they have lost my custom. So there.
