  1. No prob, thanks very much! I'd just made it to the town and then my Minecraft crashed. Also, creepers are still hanging around the middle.
  2. Yeah C4/More4. It was a season of different shows though so maybe I should have just listed the first one, Death of a Nation. I think I got it from UKNova at the time, and I can't find much info about it now but it's on youtube.
  3. Still time?! 1. Louis Theroux's Weird Weekends 2. Places That Don't Exist 3. Meet the Stans 4. When Louis Met... 5. Newsnight 6. Life on Earth 7. Michael Palin Around the World in 80 Days 8. Louis Theroux BBC2 Specials 9. Holidays in the Axis of Evil 10. The State of Russia I need to see more documentaries, as I'm struggling here. Somehow I've missed Planet Earth, Blue Planet, the Adam Curtis docs and many others so thanks to people's lists here for reminding me to see them sometime. I'm not great at analysis but: 1. Weird Weekends - As said, he's great at letting people expose themselves with some hilarious or sad results. The Gangsta Rap episode is probably my favourite. 2. Places That Don't Exist + 3. Meet the Stans - These travel docus with Simon Reeve are great. The locations were interesting and although he's dealing with some serious issues of conflict he can be pretty funny as a presenter too - just a guy hanging out in dangerous places, meeting people and pointing out odd things. I haven't seen his more recent shows yet, but hopefully they're just as good.

    The Valve Thread

    I will stand around and watch for a Portal 2, if there is any left.

    Portal 2

    Don't laugh Master Racers, but is anyone running this on an nvidia 9400m? e.g. late-2009 Macbook via Bootcamp, that runs L4D2 ok. I'm trying to gauge from the Steam forums if it will even run before I give in, and nothing seems conclusive yet. I wish there was a demo out.

    Portal 2

    Me too ;_; I'm not sure my shitfest Macbook will run it, and minimum settings might ruin the magic. But I'm still a Steambro at heart and the console version seems so far away, so I don't know what to do. Oh god the hype!
  7. Does that mean it's worth getting now? Someone earlier in the thread said to avoid...

    Do you guys generally get FLACs or VBRs (V0) or both? Maybe I should give up getting flacs as well 'just in case' if my HDD space is limited. I don't know how to add them in iTunes anyway. There's too much and I don't know what I'm doing
  9. Yeah BC2 did, but the old games just had bot training and were still full price. It seems like they needed a SP for Bad Company to compete with CoD on console, and now they're stuck making them for all the main BF games. I never got the impression that BF1942/BF2 were trying to take on CoD1/2 like the current games are. Also, there's so many Battlefield games! And still no Mirror's Edge 2. Maybe their campaigns could be better if they weren't churning out BF Heroes and BF Free2Play. They're probably all seperate teams, but still
  10. I love DICE and any Deal With It gifs, but I thought they'd be above this trash talk It's probably some dick at EA pushing them. Hopefully the game is awesome anyway and they're confident about it (not that it looks at all bad so far).
  11. Opinions will probably vary quite a bit. I thought seasons 2-4 were almost all excellent, with a real heart to the show (as you say), and 5 had some great episodes but they kinda lost it near the end. I see people still like the new seasons so maybe you'll like them too. But the season 6 atmosphere seemed too wierd and zany, and most jokes fell flat so I gave up near the start. Maybe the end of S3 changed everything but there were still good episodes after that so, I dunno...
  12. Looks awesome No mods and that guy sounds iffy about the Commander role, but I hope they work it in somehow or at least give squad leaders more powers. I understand most people just want to shoot things but when you had a good player in that role it really added to the game IMO. Also great that prone is back - I think BC1+2 worked fine without it, but if there's bigger maps it will be nice laying in some grass marking targets for planes again. Not that always being hit by unseen snipers is fun of course. Maybe if they had a more specialised role or something you wouldn't get nearly full teams of snipers sat behind rocks like in BC2 Rush.
  13. I heard The Road is Cliffy B's favourite book, so that would make a lot of sense.
  14. Don't think morg can make it earlier. Is there a rllmuk chat channel? we could discuss all this in there if we can make one...
  15. morg and me should be playing at 19:00 now also.
  16. I think mediafire, fileserve, megaupload or dropbox are all free and should be fine for 70mb. Not sure if you need accounts.
  17. Yeah, please post a map backup if possible mmmicrophone.
  18. Are these older-ish games still good?: Broken Sword 1&2 Civ Rev Game Dev Story Noby Noby Boy Phoenix Wright Puzzle Quest 1&2 Just getting my first iPod Touch, have PvZ and Words with Friends so far. But keeping track of the daily xmas sales + good old/new games is crazy. edit: sorry, I see indiesale was already posted but it's still good
  19. Quick question (sorry) to Treble or anyone else who knows - I tested out this PS1 with one PAL and one NTSC game, on a CRT TV. PAL was in colour but NTSC was black and white. All the PS1 seems to have come with is Red/White/Yellow connectors and I read something about an RGB cable being needed or a TV with NTSC mode (which I don't think I have. Does this mean the PS1 is fine and just needs an RGB cable or a better TV than mine? Thanks
  20. A long shot but if you did want a seperate modded PS1, I was given one to sell but don't really know much about them. It plays NTSC US/PAL (I think!), and was bundled with some FFs/FF Tactics/SotN...
  21. Thanks +1 for organising rav. Hope the final was fun! Sorry I've not been watching or on SC2 much in general - I've been having net problems so have not wanted to mess things up for others.
  22. I kinda liked the pre-credits bit.
  23. Chris Smoove is great too IMO. He can laugh at himself, and I like his theme songs and the "Ass Clapper 130".
