  1. System Shock 2 is AMAZING. Most atmospheric and scary game I've ever played. It's complicated and substantial. It's spiritual successor, BioShock has unfortunately been 'consolized' I.e. been made more Simple and less Complex to fit in with the console demographic. Sad that, seems to be happening to more and more cross platform games that are designed with the console in mind rather than the PC.. Anyway.... did I mention it's an amazing games.. if anyone does play it, don't forget to get the high-res model pack.... although in a way the low res models are a lot more scary..
  2. Zweifel Chilli and Lemon crisps. Only ever found it in one shop. The crisps of the Gods. Someone PLEASE tell me it can be found somewhere...

    please delete

    changed my mind, please delete
  4. I shall pop down there and try to find another camera on the same building in a similar position but without the canopy thing. Or I suppose I could get my graphic designer mate to make the canopy thing disappear Is that cheating? (I'm lazy). More from the same batch, not great but best I could do at the time. No post processing.
  5. Yeah, I've noticed that more and more, I need to think more about framing and stuff because many times a good shot is ruined by as you say some ugly obtrusive object in the foreground. I'm been reading about that rule of thirds thing, so will give that a try for a bit and see if it improves my shots. Ta.
  6. Yeah, I like the security camera one despite the fact the hanging canopy thing ruins it, I'm sure it can be eliminated with a bit of photoshopping My main problem is my hands shake far too much and I get loads of blurry pics. That and the fact that I need to master the whole depth of field thing to get out of focus backgrounds. Upgrading from nothing, bought the camera on a whim (sort of), got inspired by a colleague at work to buy one. The second proper shooting I did was at a friends wedding, the pics are better than the one's above. Will post them later.
  7. Some pics I took after buying a Canon 350D. They're rubbish. Went a bit mad with the post processing on this one.
  8. Saw it a couple of weeks ago, absolutely bored me to tears. The SFX is good, but there's only so many shots of yellow metal you can see at various whizzing angles before you tire of it. Badly acted, boring script etc The only mildly interesting bit started when that sun-burned bloke turned up and turned the film from a bad sci-fi movie into mediocre slasher movie, but his appearance felt as if they realised how rubbish and tedious the film was and ended up changing the script near the end to have some sort of exciting finale. And yes I did like and understand 2001, so it's not because I'm some thicky Crap/10.
  9. This one. Amazing! Also read First And Last Men by Olaf Stapledon. Simply fantastic book of a truely epic scale. And it was written in the 1930's!!
  10. Meh. It's just your bog standard DIY arcade stick, nothing special about it.
  11. I saw it in the same place, can't say I noticed any big difference :\
  12. I've said it before and I'll say it again: Zweifel Chilli & Lemon, sadly not sold anymore.
  13. I tried to like them, god did I try. I tried to force them down with lots of milk and plenty of sugar. It still tasted like sawdust.
  14. Good game, BUT the battles far too easy (half the game ruined).
  15. Goldeneye Mario Kart/F-Zero (SNES, track going around car? Crazy!)) Mario 64 GTA from 3 onwards, lost it's charm and became another rap/hip-hop inspired gimmick, and I like rap. Metroid Prime (managed to plod my way through 1, but when 2 came along, it was just more of the same aimless wandering). WW2 FPS/Strategy games. Christ, there's a fuckload of these. Tetris/any puzzle game, okay for 10 minutes every few years, but addictive? I don't think so. Burnout 3, not so much drive skillfully as do nothing and get 10 trillion points for driving in a straight line. Overly bombastic, too much like Need for Speed.
  16. There used to be a brand of crisps around 5-10 years ago called Zweifel. One of the best flavours was chilli and lemon, and get this, you could ACTUALLY taste the lemon and chilli, both flavours were strong and distinct, not the bland crap that passes as lemon or chilli in other crisps. Sadly, very few shops sold it and I don't think they sell in the UK anymore. Best crisps EVER.
  17. This is why I like Tyrian. It actually gives you a chance to past the first two levels. Why don't more shooters use this kind of 'energy recharge' system? At least for the easy difficulty. Much better than simply infinite continues.
  18. Jesus. What a bunch of losers. But at least it's better than those sad fucks that get random Japanese/tribal symbols and end up with something that translates to "I like to do it with rabid kangaroos".
  19. We know EA. That's enough.
  20. Dungeon Keeper was one of my favourite games of all time, failed my GCSE mocks because of it. As for the second, it was all a bit 'meh'. Just didn't have that magic of the first one. The first is primitive by today's standards but the atmospehere was fantastic,; gloomy and damp. And let's not forget the fantastic voice of Beelzebub giving you advice on the status of your dungeon. And the temple was very cool. Especially when you could sacrifice creatures to get better ones. I remember the last level was being very memorable, I had 15 lv10 Dragons up against the Avatar and it still took half an hour to beat him. As for the Horned reaper, he was often more trouble thna it was worth but I always had to build him his own area and train him upto lv10 regardless of whether he was used in battle or not. Very very addictive game. And let's not forget the Vampire, used to love the way he'd take on several pansy wizards on his own unless you kept them apart.
  21. Notice that most of these games are pure shit.
  22. No, no, no. I don't want to play 15 year old games on a brand new current generation console capable of surround sound, photorealistic graphics and top bollock polygon and sprite pushing, regardless of how good the game is. I've played it and don't want to play some shitty port and get charged £10 for a game that I already paid for. And especially don't give me the same old games that have been ported to every electronic device on earth (I'm looking at you Capcom and Namco). Give me new ideas, new ways of playing, but not the same fucking game. Am I the only one not at all excited by the prospect playing games I've aready played years ago just for a bit of nostalgia? Personally I detest all those endless retro compilations that come out every month (4/5 of the games are shit anyway).
