  1. Oh, how fantastic is that. I was impressed by the Edge article a few months back but it's another thing altogether to see it in motion. Plus I've been deliberately avoiding ROTS hype so see it seems wierd seeing Vader, Stormtroopers and Chewie in a prequel game. Of course, it won't be as good as the sequel - Lego Star Wars: The Classic Trilogy...
  2. We've been using them for a few years now, we started off making our own cases from recommendations but for the last couple of years have just been on the "world wine tour" where they send you a crate every 3 months. I've no complaints at all, they're very reliable and the wine is almost always extremely palatable.
  3. I'm sorry but I can't read those words without imagine them being spoken by Comic Book Guy. "Best. Lego. Ever!"
  4. Long Gone Before Daylight was my Official Favourite Album Of 2003. And as nothing last year came close IMHO, I hereby declare it my Official Favourite Album Of 2004 too. It's that good.
  5. Another Nottingham Playtime fan here. When I was selling loads of games this time last year I was in there a lot doing trade ins - after the first couple of times they started to recognise me and stopped bothering to check the discs cos they knew I looked after them. After that I offloaded all my scratched up crap.* They're really nice guys, always do a good trade in deal and its the only non-online games shop I've used for over a year. Three cheers for Sabreman and "the other one"! *Not really.
  6. Apart from the snogging, that's a pretty good description of virtually every Sam 'n' Frodo scene in every Lord of the Rings film. If only they'd got it over with once they crossed the river they'd have got to Mordor in no time.
  7. I'm not sure if this "qualifies" as New Games Journalism, but it seems to press all the right buttons for me. Confessions of a Street Fighter Virgin
  8. This year's Beyond Good & Evil? I'm still playing last year's Beyond Good & Evil. What do you mean it's nearly next year? ;P
  9. Any plain chocolate will do for me. I know some makes are better but even the worst ones are still fantastic. If I have to make do with a normal chocolate bar then Boosts, Mavericks and Fuses get the nod. But a bit of plain is 1000 times better.
  10. I think my view is somewhere between yours and hers. Yes, the industry (in Britain at least) is starting to make the right noises about tighter ratings and restrictions, if only because they could see it coming in Blunkett's Britain (TM - now under new management!) and would rather influence the outcome than have it imposed on them. However, they still continue to market violent games to a younger audience. In this respect I agree entirely with the infamous Redeyegate article. But elsewhere I'm not sure there is any such shift in approach and so I can understand the writer's indignation. I don't want my children playing violent games (and I don't let them) but I also don't want the manufacturers pimping those games to them regardless. Who knows, perhaps the UK industry and our old mate Roger Bennett will end up showing the rest of the world the way forward.
  11. Oh, I dunno. Fear And Loathing In Super Mario World could be good. Plenty of mushrooms for a start.
  12. I'd just like to put in a good word for Pokemon Channel. Not in a "look beyond the it's-for-kids appearance" way, but simply because it is for kids, and my kids absolutely love it. A game about having your own pet Pikachu, talking to loads of other Pokemon(s?) and watching nothing but Pokemon cartoons and other programmes on telly? Very boring for 34 year old dad, digital crack for his Pokeholic offspring.
