@coojam Actually, it's a BUN. But in Sheffield, pretty much everything is a bun. Even a doughnut.

I got as far as the introductions. It's pretty stilted, lo-fi and long and drawn-out. But I'm sure it'll get loads better, so good work on getting it started.

7/10 is mathematically equivalent to 14/20, which translates as seventh position in the Premiership.

Given that the Villa are currently fourth in the table, above Arsenal, how the fuck is this shite game 'the Aston Villa' of football management games?

It should be the Wigan.

Oh yeah - "you are positively retarded. a comic book - and you can call it "graphic novel" as much as you want, it's still a comic book - will never even be close to literature. grow up already and start to read a few real books, then you might have a clue as to what literature is"

I didn't use the term 'graphic novel' once. I never do, funnily enough. I go with Alan Moore's description of 'big, expensive comics'. As for 'real books', I can PM you the contents of my bookcases if it'll make you feel better.

JahB, you've missed my point. I said comics are more able to be literature than games. You're doing this:

BOOKS > EVERYTHING

When all I was saying was:

COMICS > GAMES (in terms of narrative and 'art')

But that's not to say that games don't contain strong narrative or artistic elements. Still, I find your posting amusing, so carry on in the same vein if you like.

Rhubarb:

To be fair, I was being fairly ironic with the 'Marvelol' comment, although Marvel comics are generally speaking lightweight reading. Even The Ultimates (imo the best Marvel series) is just bubblegum compared to, say, the Sinestro Corps War or Kingdom Come.

I just don't see the 'Watchmen and V are shit but Ultimate Spidey is teh awesom' argument. It baffles me.

Pffff, Ultimate Spiderman. Marvelol etc.

Bendis is ok generally, but it's pretty lightweight fare.

If you read an interview with Holly Valance, are you really expecting in-depth discussion of gaming?

Likewise, an interview with Dave Gibbons is hardly going to be about the finer points of current-gen gaming.

First Tolkien's Cannon, and now this?

I like the way gaming journalists get to call comic book enthusiasts 'geeks'. Comics have more potential to be literature and art than games.

Bomberman Blast eh? Eight-player eh? Sounds... tempting. But I already paid for the crappy Turbo GFX version. And the SNES versions 2 and 3. And the DS version.

There's only really major problems in Rio and Sao Paulo, and the problems are all in the favelas. Incidentally, I don't think people in favelas have too many PCs capable of running either game.
