  1. Half-Life 2

    This fan-collated timeline is pretty cool, although it does go into Eps 1 and 2, so you'll only want to read up to 1.6.
  2. Awesometris!

    Quite cool, but it could have gone a bit quicker in the opening stage - it took me so long to figure out the conceit, I would have given up if it wasn't thumbs-recommended.
  3. Indie games suck!

    Yayyy! Well done! Gibbage is the better of the two, obviously. Everyone get the free demo!
  4. Videogaiden 3

    Am I the only one who doesn't like these shows? It's exactly what I don't want from a gaming show - two idiots performing sub-Why Don't You? sketches and favouring bum jokes over copy. At least Bits conveyed some information in between the tits.
  5. Who would you vote for?

    I got Obama, but I was clicking 'No Opinion' for a lot of it, not understanding a load of American systems, eg health care.
  6. Seeeeeen it...

    Is there an established internet slang term for something that everyone's seen? Like, say, if I posted a thread saying "Hey, look at this 'Zero Punctuation' thing", or whatever. If not, can we come up with one, please?
  7. Seeeeeen it...

    Well, OFN is closest to what I was looking for, although I was hoping someone had come up with an amazing pun term. Thanks, Thumbs!
  8. Re. the original question: Although most sites don't include the track 'Angel' in the credits, wikipedia lists it as an uncredited track, and this site says: I'm still of the opinion that it's so close, it must be a licensed non-vocal version.
  9. How to survive a Zombie Apocalypse

    Digg it, everyone! That's me playing park-zombie/bad Bruce Campbell impersonator. I haven't seen it myself yet due to Flash issues, but I expect I look like a smug cheese advert child for most of it, for which I apologise. Dan (he made the film) is a big fan of both World War Z and that 50 000 Volts special...
  10. Obviously, he owned bombs and stuff as well, but those details haven't been released. Either that or he was arrested on a hunch and they're making it sound as if there's lots of great evidence they can't talk about. They'll be shooting people for wearing rucksacks next.
  11. Uwe Boll interview

    ...up at avclub, which made me actually respect him a little, although he's probably talking complete rubbish. Is avclub one of those sites that everyone reads and doesn't need to be linked to? I agree with every one of their reviews, and I love 'commentary tracks of the damned' and the 'savage love' advice column.
  12. How was your weekend?

    Two parties on Saturday, very fun, up 'til 3am. After 2 hours sleep, get up to scout a location for the tv show I'm working on. Specifically, for a sketch pastiching 28 Days Later, so I was alone on Westminster Bridge with a camera at 6am Sunday morning. Got a couple more hours sleep, then watched Shoot 'Em Up (good fun, but not John Woo) and DeathProof (the full-length European cut, amazing). Went home, watched Face/Off, fell asleep.
  13. MySims

    Bummer. From the adverts, I figured it was either a really canny realignment of the series to fit the Wii audience... or a shameless rip-off of Animal Crossing. I suspected the latter.
  14. GamesTM

    Games TM is an awful mag anyway. It's a clumsily written, badly edited Edge-wannabe.
  15. Adventure Gamers now 100% more awesome

    Good stuff! Glad you retained the classic icon. Any chance Josh Roberts is going to continue his Adventure Architect column? Hope his game hasn't folded...
  16. Movie/TV recommendations

    It's DJ Shadow, according to Peter. Any thoughts on the trailer? A lot of people have been unimpressed by it, possibly because it doesn't bring the funny. It's supposed to give a general vibe more than that...
  17. Movie/TV recommendations

    I'd like to recommend that everyone in the UK check out the trailer for, and look forward to, The Peter Serafinowicz Show. I worked on it, and it's shaping up to be brilliant.
  18. Double Fine

    So, assuming this is true (or do we now know it to be true?), is it a good thing? Are we excited? Is one-man-show Jack Black just the guy to usher in a new era of film star video games? Or is Schafer going to lose his Midas touch?
  19. Red Riding Hood sounds hot, too. Bit old though.
  20. The Winner of "Most Creative Polls" Goes to:

    Teen Wolf would kick Ruxpin's ass.
  21. The Winner of "Most Creative Polls" Goes to:

    I care about Teen Wolf.
  22. Movie/TV recommendations

    A word of warning: don't expect it to be too similar to Shaun Of The Dead. The humour's a lot broader. It's definitely worth watching, but I personally prefered Shaun.
  23. And I'll stick to reading Frank Miller's Robocop Vs Terminator comicbook miniseries.
  24. Grindhouse (2007)

    Sin City (2005) SHIT Once Upon a Time in Mexico (2003) SHIT Spy Kids (2001) SHIT The Faculty (1998) SHIT From Dusk Till Dawn (1996) CLASSIC Desperado (1995) GREAT Mariachi, El (1992) V GOOD
