    Wow, a Moro contains 64% of your RDA of saturated fats! That's incredible, over 20% of the weight of the bar is saturated fats!

    Damn tasty though.

    Any good birthday present gifts for a girl friend ?

    A couple of us were thinking of chipping in and getting something nicer together.

    Our cat just ninja attacked my hand while I'm playing Halo 4. It certainly added to the atmosphere.

    I think she's just trying to let us know she could take us any time she chooses....

    @Vortex808 Is it ironic that playing Halo 4 makes you a 'literal' pussy magnet? .

    That Vodafone advert with the girl doing the crossword on the train has yoda looking more like Thora Hird than Empire Strikes Back...

    It's just struck me that the latest generation of gamers have never known a world of gaming without rumble or analogue sticks.

    This depresses me.

    @darkmorgado I wonder what proportion have never been into an arcade in their whole life.

    The latest generation of gamers never had to endure endless movie tie-ins. Jammy bastards.

    I just had an idea.

    You know how publishers are doing these annoying 'online vouchers' so you can't resell games properly...

    ...and you know how publishers are using Metacritic scores as a huge part of their business...

    ...we get all the sites run by real gamers and get them to agree that any game with this online pass is docked one point from its final score. This lowers the metacritic score and will make the publishers take action.

    @Khanivor I was going to say that they don't have to put up with unreliability or ridiculously long loading times.

    Then I thought about Red Rings of Death and the PS3 Blu Ray drive.

    Continue.

    Martin Galway. There's a name I've not heard of for a very long time.

    Here's a random musing;

    How come my mother gets to meet the pilot of Apollo 14, one of the few remaining moonwalkers, and I don't? That would be like me getting to meet the Archbishop of Canterbury instead of her.

    To brighten the mood, I went into HMV a few weeks ago and found that in the games department were four pinball tables! Real ones! You barely found them in UK arcades (at least the ones I ever went to). I was delighted, although I chose poorly. The ball felt too light and bouncy.

    I think in some cases this is happening already, dependant on importance of online features. LBP:K has been criticized by a few reviewers for locking a crucial portion of the game behind a pay wall.

    I don't get that though. They are not locking anything away as you get access if you buy the game.

    I can see why they would want a return on games sold second hand frankly. Especially in a game like LBP. That backend infrastructure must cost them a fortune to maintain.
