Although the car now has an air of "you should see the other guy". Could start a trend in esthetic damage, maybe. I did a few years running night shift. I found it broke down my sleep cycles, I got too used to ignoring when I was tired. Also I remember that without sunlight the human body doesn`t pr...

The one with Prestige points Yeah that one. The leader of prestige thing screws up the whole game. I think the problem comes from them wanting to have more interaction between players, it just makes a mess really. Still reckon some more copies of the basic developments would help but there's only s...

Ooh yeah, Galaxy trucker is another good one, reminds me of Car wars without the tedious driving simulation. I used to spend hours just designing vehicles. Scrapheap wars is a TV show yeh? Not played Space Alert. I like the idea of playing to a CD. There is a cooperate game where you have to save th...

Don't think I've tried any of the expansion packs. I'll keep an eye out for Inns & Cathedrals. You might like a game called Taluva, building villages on volcanoes where tiles can be overlaid as well as put next to each other. Did manage to get some sketches done while I was there. http://eddyction.z...

Aye, Carcassonne is great. Personally prefer it to Settlers of Catane, which has the same sort of vibe. I love games where you build the board as you go... I always play too many farmers and run out of meeples though. There was a stall selling game-related cooking stuff. I bet they had meeples cooki...

Not sure about that actually. I was thinking that despite having any particular ideals Soundwave was one of few that believed in anything apart from bullying other people around. Like you'd follow him because he was sensible. Sensible evil. I agree that Galvatron and Straxus don't really count thoug...

I tend to find that age difference is more of about what generation you grew up with than maturity. Maturity happens when you have the opportunity to develop and blossom. Wouldn't necessarily agree that religious or military indoctrination would suit everyone though (wouldn't mind sailing for a coup...

Soulcalibur II is good fun with a bit of practice behind. Current mantra in starcraft is that no build queue should be empty, I even got so far as writing down my standard protoss build :) 8 drones pylon portal pylon [keep building drones] [zealots] portal 2xgas refineries cybernetic core extend pyl...

I've been playing the Starcraft II beta quite a lot recently. Amazing graphics aside it's pretty much the same as the first one, I've no problems with that. The new macros are well thought out too so's I gets lost less often. Mostly been trying out the Protoss. The new void rays are awesome, they ev...

If is was me, not sure I'd want to be remembered as having anything to do with boyzone, and in the meantime no one takes the piss out of you. It's the thing about typecast roles though, I'd say you're looking at a Boeski, a Jim Brown, a Miss Daisy, two Jethros and a Leon Spinks, not to mention the b...

Strangely enough, It's more the documentary Of Muppets and Men: The Making of The Muppet Show that sticks in my mind. I remember noticing how much fun they were having doing the series. I watched the show from a different angle since, as grown-ups messing around and enjoying themselves. Probably lik...
