Do they have any washing machines left to drop on people?
Not much I expect
Until I saw it was only about the tech company and not the main ingredient in cider
I liked him in Fifth Element and Unbreakable.
And 58 is not old.
I am only 50 but feel like a lot of years younger.
What about chip shops?
Now that would get rid of them in a usefull way.
I thought Helen was at home with Michael?
Naughty Dog will be writing games for it.
Actually I am going to mention the other big thing which helped.
Seing Bungie at the PS meeting where the PS4 was announced.
As a PS owner the games I have most wanted to try are Bungie ones.
I have never understood the hate towards the series, I have played all 4 games, and they are fun.
I will be buying Mercenary and Shadow Fall.
They have a good back story. The so called villians (they are not villians of course*) are great. The games always look fantastic, and the multiplayers require skill. What is surprising is that the multiplayers for 2 (released 2009) and 3 (released 2011) are still very busy.
What we do find though is that CoD players usually do terribly , they cannot get used to the heaviness of the controls, that reactions are no match for experience, and that jumping up and down makes you look stupid.
KZ3 is in the top 5 best graphics on a console for this generation (TLOU or UC3 is best).
The weapons are usaully well balanced, even the LMGs can be used to good effect. And you can of course use the famous Chunky Gun.
All hail the Chunky Gun
* How can they be villians with such voices as Ray Winstone, Sean Pertwee, Malcolm McDowell, Christopher Fairbank, Richard Ridings, and of course Brian Cox.
Play good games such as Gravity Rush, Unit 13, Uncharted Golden Abbyss, and Killzone Mercenary
Lots of racing games have local multiplayer, eg the Motorstorm series, Modnation Racers, LBP Karting.
All 4 user.
For this generation it is possible for two people to play Uncharted 3 multiplayer online from the same console.
OK then I will be getting Killzone Shadowfall.
Will it play that?
Will it play the next Halo from MS?
Some of us like the console games. Some of us like slobbing out on the settee. After spending all day coding getting away from a PC is nice.
If this means we will be getting more games servers I do not mind, PSN+ free games are worth it, I joined to get a few just over a month ago. (ICO & LBP Karting)
I told my wife I had joined PS+.
Then she saw the free games, asled how much and was gobsmacked at £4 a month.
Currently playing Spec Ops the Line before the Survivor play through of TLOU
Or a life size cut out of Steve Balmer.
I loved TLOU, but I am also a big Uncharted fan
OK Name them, I am sure Sony have more owned studios than anyone else.
However Naughty Dog must be worth 3 or 4 of any others.
That is because MS is more a software company (but their KB and mice were good), however it is designed to be quiet.
Sony are more a hardware company so know what they are doing hardware wise.
Move is pretty effective, much better for shooters as well. Compare the main PS3 shooters such as Killzone 3 or Portal 2 with say Blackwater.
Still prefer the name Project Natal as I prefered Nintendo Revolution.
I like slobbing out on a settee to play games.
PS4 is better value as it is a bit more powerful and £80 less
Vita - had one last Christmas
I like Unit 13 and Gravity Rush
I would rather get a 360 to play those exclusives I missed than a XB1.
We went PS3 due to more children friendly games in 2007, and I was used to the Dualshock controller.
Those children now play my shooter games!
But then I still have a large backlog.
But I always have a balance.
£20 with £2 fees approx is still better than receiving nothing.
Just need to price your sales to cover Ebay and Paypal
I find them expensive in fees but reasonable in disputes (idiot customer).
The idiot bought by mistake, so I cancelled transaction to get my final value fees back, she said no leaving me with fees, then she tried to claim back the whole amount from paypal (including the fees I would have to pay), I called paypal, they rejected her claim.
She was shocked, a month later I refunded -20p for the unrefundable paypay fee, the final value fee for Ebay (over a pound) and a little extra due to paypal calculations, I was not out of pocket, or in pocket, she lost nearly £2 just by being arsy.
I keep getting people paypal me money and using the card is an easy way of using it, Gives me a second bank account in a way as I can use it funds permitting even if my main account is OD.
Some of these little Ebay and web based part time things can get you a few hundred a month!
Too much hassle - I will stick with my Paypal debit card.
Before you knock it, try doing Ebay without Paypal.
I was busy!
OK 6 months then - still disproportionate
Stupid fine, stupid hours of community service, stupid sentence.
1000 hours is a year at 40 hours a week.
US punishments are completely disproportionate.
I could understand 3 months, or say a few hundred hours, but the money is just well not feasable.
Better off emigrating to Russia.
All the defence companies do it. They have to in that regaion.
Bribe them or no sale.
Lots of jobs and money - so I actually do not care about the bribery.
Wow downvoted by a moron!
Do you know what a pirate is?
Pirates - they should walk the plank, or blow their fishing boats out of the water
Copywrite infringers - may be tell them off.
He won it for not being Bush or the person who replaced Bush in his party.
We have the Pound, no need of Monopoly Money or chocolate coin money
Not too clear - quote from above, but I have heard of a lot of Xbox fans are not a fan of the XB1, and are considering the PS4,
Hence that troll may fail!
This is the best way of dealing with them.
There is a fine line between bullying and trolling and trolls who cross the line can end up as victims themselves, either online, or on the end of a fist.
I have seen NG trolls getting real life warnings about their bullying.
"Or going to an xbox fansite and telling them why the PS4 is superior to the XBotch en every way."
What would happen with say Chris Hoy on the bike?
XR Fords - I remember them well, commonly seen in rear view mirrors.
Boy racers, nothing like deflating a couple revving at traffic lights, riding between them, and beating both of them, on a 250!. However a Cossie Sierra took a 600 to leave it behind.
XR3is seemed to crop up everywhere, often picking on smaller Rootes Group cars, lets just say the old high compression Avenger 1600 engine is very pokey, and please check the Sunbeam engine options.
Had a draw in a TLGP against a 2.0 Capri while driving an Avenger estate! (I knew them)
Even my mum in a Reliant 3 wheeler had a XR3 try it one once.
This would be good, last time space was really exciting was in the early 70s.
Aircraft, why are museum pieces better to watch than in service stuff?
(Think Vulcan, Concorde, SHAR)
She seems the sort.
And imagine the conversations in the Mitchell household.
Maybe we would get newer OSes
Perhaps that graphical DOS app cost a lot of money?
Funny that our DOS app runs up to XP and our Windows APP starts on XP.
Vista killed DOS full screen
7 Killed NETBIOS (AFAIR)
8 is too different
So XP stays on
And PS3 and X360 are cheaper still, and have games.
I have seen bits of this, but it always ends up with the idiots being picked on.
When you see woman players always with the same groups, they will shut them up with lots of kills, basically the idiots are targeted.
Even funnier when the woman is the wife of one of the other players. This makes the idiots panic quit.
This is a hardcore FPS.
Yet on a more casual TPS you do get more idiots including some players blocking in female characters (not players) and trying to hump them using the taunt system. Dropping a grenade gets the message through, then they got booted. I occasionally played female characters as they were nicer to watch
You have it right, this is why I ignore them - and they are going paywall mad.
See my other posts, removing the crap gives you a lot more sensible sites to view, foreign sites are pretty good and blogs reveal more about politics than any paper.
Anyway compare Guardian and Telegraph, different view points but not junk papers.
Are they reputable?
The Sun lies, Mirror is crap, Mail is fascist.
Leaves the TV sites, lots of international sites, a few half decent newspapers, local papers, the news agencies, news blogs.
Nothing wrong with some prefiltering.
As to bias somewhere between them all you can find the truth.
OK I would be too embarrased about being on the Sun site, more embarrassing than porn.
Mirror - all celeb stories no news
Mail - just a bunch of fascists, see their recent campaign to restrict our internet.
Are essential when dealing with any new story beyond traffic news.
I will admit my first source is BBC, after that I look through various links from Google news search.
I do not check anythng News International nor gutter
Why did they name it after the Austin Metro?
Well when I first heard of Sky Drive my thoughts were of Walnut heads empire.
In fact it puts me right off using it.
Yuk - much rather get my vitamin C from fruit & veg.
More to the point, rather then force down and feel sick with liver I can get it at a higher concentration with those old favourites Brocolli and Sprouts.
I also have an orange a day.
Mixed diet FTW!
