Musical Ambitions? Have Two Grand. | October 16, 2010 at 11:43 AM

Did you get an instrument in the end?

Shame there's no Pcket UFO: Enemy Unknown like you can get for the XDA/PDA. That would rawk.

Ilove Iphone | May 17, 2009 at 07:53 PM

I've not played a single one yet as I can't be arsed paying 59 pence per game - tight or what?!

I've heard the one where you land the aeroplanes as some sort of air traffic controller is addictive, so I've chosen to give that a very wide berth what with my lack of spare time and all ( he says after penning two articles in three hours).

It does have some accelerometers built into the unit, so allows developers to use tilting the unit as part of the controls - we've all seen that racing car one by now I guess.

I'm pretty sure the iPhone has a light sensor built in as well, as when I'm on a call and it's pressed to my ear, the screen goes off stright away, then when you pull it away it lights up again. Wonder if there's something you can do with that that could work in a game?

Star Trek Reborn | May 17, 2009 at 07:49 PM

Yup, Cho does get a comedy moment too, but his action roles area little more kick-ass (even if he does inexplicably bring a Katana to a gun fight).

Ilove Iphone | May 17, 2009 at 07:32 PM

One of the few Simpsons episodes worth watching there

I think, as with most phones, you can turn it off. Not sure if you can train it on which words to ignore, but I don't recall it trying to correct me on anything twice. Perhaps it senses my fury and fears a Chuck Norris moment.

Star Trek Reborn | May 17, 2009 at 07:29 PM

Don't laugh at the poor guy, it's his only serious moment in the whole movie (and that's mostly because he's not saying anything at the time).

Every other scene he's in he steals completely. Quality.

Indeed. "Free" internet can be tempting

Forgot to mention the on-screen qwerty keyboard is actually better than you'd expect once you get past the whole "fat fingers" syndrome, and it's fairly good at predicting what you're trying to type when you get half the letters wrong.

Broken Sword - The Director's Cut | March 18, 2009 at 07:56 AM

Sooo... did you buy the PC version more than once because of scratched/misplaced CD's?

That's my reaon for buying UFO: EU at least twice and TFTD about 3 times. I do have more versions of those because of Collector's Editions, but mostly it was down to not looking after my games

I vaguely recall Broken Sword as an extremely atmospheric adventure game that just seemed to go on forever (as most of those games do ). So how's it port to DS? Still great?

The Fountain | March 16, 2009 at 07:15 PM

A fountain? Or was that too much to hope for?

If you can't guess it then I have no hope and will steer clear lest I become confused and annoyed.

Doomsday! | March 16, 2009 at 07:13 PM

You had me trying to think of a filkm where PErtwee doesn't die.

I was like:

"Event Horiz... nah"
"Dog Sold... nope"
"Equilibr... scratch that one"

Bugger. He must be pissed when he gets a great script and then gets to that page

Beowulf | March 16, 2009 at 07:11 PM

That's something else that gets me a bit - the one character they made look so precisely like the actor was Hopkins' character. They could have just put him in the film and saved a fortune but nooo...

In Fookin' Bruges | March 16, 2009 at 07:09 PM

I did predict that it might not end so spiffingly well for all concerned, although that was pretty much as soon as you learn about Ray's recent past.

You couldn't have him having a fookin' great time after that. It would be wrong.

In Fookin' Bruges | March 15, 2009 at 12:59 PM

Finally! It has arrived! A gangster (well technically hitman) film that doesn't glamourise the hitmen.

Farrell's character really doesn't like Bruges ("I hate fookin' Bruges" being one of the most used lines in the film to good effect) and he breaks down very convincingly in places given his character's unfortunate recent history.

Gleeson is great as ever.

Fiennes - well it's the first time I've seen him swear so much. He makes a fantastic, greasy-looking cockney hitman

"I fought it'd be good to giv the boy sumfink nice".

Oh? You want to know about the film? Okay...

3 hitmen, one medieval European city, 1 drug-dealing babe, 1 dwarf actor, 2 prostitutes, much alcohol, a few drugs here and there, a fair bit of shooting, some happy times, some very down times, some fookin' hilarious moments, some over-the-top blood-spattered bits... and I won't spoil the ending.

It won't be what you're expecting, that's for sure. Go. Watch. Enjoy.

The extras on the DVD are good too - especially enjoyed the "Fookin' Bruges" extra which seems to play every swear word in the film in order. You honestly don't realise they're swearing that much til you watch that.

On a side-note, it always takes me a minute or two to adjust my brain for the faster-than-light Irish-accented dialogue, but maybe that's just me. Wonder if Farrell gets bored of having to slow it down when he does an American accent for American audiences?

No Country For Old Men. | March 15, 2009 at 12:49 PM

My bro did lend me the DVD but I've just not got around to it yet. Will have to check it out I s'pose.

Doomsday! | March 15, 2009 at 12:47 PM

Seen it yet? I was a bit confused by the trailer that just seemed to show people shouting a lot and not generaly getting along.

Seems trailers just show action-y bits and give no hinst as to the theme of the movie any more.
