    Yeah I've been starving 'em, teasing 'em... singing off key. *Mee may mah moh, mee moo mah may*
  1. You forgot about Tahir as surplus - shitty tame legspin outside the right-handers' leg stump... Seriously though, SA played some marvellous cricket, as they did in 2008. The batters' temperament was wonderful, but the verve of the bowlers was the biggest difference, for me. Broad should not be in a side where Finn is picked right now, and the way they negated Swann was impressive. I think we rested on our laurels, in the end.
  2. If Pietersen's texts turn out to be what the papers say, it might very well be the end of his England career.
  3. Onions for Bresnan maybe? You have to wonder about his place after his poor performances - made more pointed after he suggested England may be better off without Pietersen...
  4. Tahir's figures of 3 for 92 flatter to deceive - he really was completely useless, coming round the wicket and constantly bowling outside leg stump and offering an easy one to mid on every ball. Going for four an over... what's the point? Was there on Friday, was a pretty good atmosphere and England bowled well with no reward. Shame they called it off pretty early after the rain - I wonder if other Test match grounds with better drainage would have been able to get the players back out...
  5. Thanks to The Bag (good show, old bean), my details are confirmed in the leak. However, I'd say that the hash that represents the password field is not a straight encryption using MD5, so to some extent (unless they've pilfered the salt and algorithm too) the passwords are safe from a dictionary attack. That plus the lack of widespread prevalence of the file itself makes me a little bit more confident, although of course I've changed passwords on the few sites which shared that one. The ecommerce software videogamesplus.ca use seems to be OsCommerce, which is one of the shittiest ecommmerce packages you could imagine. This could sink VGP, frankly.
  6. Game of the Year Zelda: Skyward Sword Dear God, I didn't expect it to be *that* good. Astonishing. Deus Ex: HR Slightly hoary tale, but as good as could have been hoped for Guardian Heroes Just because a great old game was even more fun with skilled players dropping in via XBL and showing me how to really play Super Stickman Golf Bloody awesome multiplayer fun Bastion Kid loved the narrator to bits
  7. Indeed - I'm totally on board and expect something Halo at E3 - but they fished out the evidence from a sticker, and you believed it
  8. That's Destructoid for you in a nutshell - a press pass with stickers on it = new Halo game! Utter nonsense. There may be a new Halo game at E3 but there's nothing that indicates that from the pass. By their logic, Portal 3 is going to be shown too. Sorry, I hate Destructoid.
  9. New Matchmaking update, and this is a cracker: http://www.bungie.net/News/Blog.aspx?mode=news#cid31423 Action Sack has been hilarious for me so I'm chuffed to see it get even dafter. Team Classic expanded to more modes of play is also cool, and the Armor Lock haters' favourite, Squad Slayer, fixes Team Slayer.
  10. I could spend all day on this and not be done. And then I'd struggle to order them, so here's a rough list that will have to be my final list, for my sanity: Arrested Development 30 Rock The Larry Sanders Show Father Ted South Park It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia Screenwipe I'm Alan Partridge The Thick Of It Archer Have I Got News For You Spaced Smell Of Reeves & Mortimer Phoenix Nights The Two Ronnies Peep Show The Day Today Blackadder The Simpsons Brass Eye So many others could've gone in, including more influential shows and cult favourites, but these are the ones that delight me the most. EDIT. I've fucking missed Frasier, haven't I? Jesus Christ
  11. I prefer Arcade, mostly because you don't have to worry about idiots barrelling in and losing all the lives. Waiting for the Phantoms is annoying too. I've played a silly amount of FF though, it must be said. I got my Field Marshall rank today and I had a regretful moment of "what have you wasted your time doing?" for a while after. And then played some more
  12. Odd - I've played 20 or so games on Unearthed through FF Matchmaking, and it comes up often enough for me to think it's quite common.
  13. I'm no hider but there are a couple of camping spots on Firefight maps I've seen people idle in, to pick up the big cR boosts you get from Firefight Arcade when everyone is spamming the FRG and cleaning up in minutes. I've taken to deliberately not ending a wave so they can't get the full boost they're after, but it does mean giving some Grunts the runaround for 10 minutes. A pyrrhic victory.
  14. Seems there might initially have been a problem with the new Firefight map in Matchmaking, not coming up in rotation. From the Weekly Update: Personally I'm a bit disappointed in the new FF map, but then I'm probably biased since I've played the others so much. It's coming up pretty often in Arcade though, so I guess it'll grow on me.
