Physics-based eat-stuff-smaller-than-you game. What's not to like? That was one of the best parts of the entire Spore game

And yes, the $=£=€ thing bugs me.

Maybe I'll use some of my Xmas money to pick up a copy tonight then.

What about Osmos? It sounds interesting but I've not heard much about it. Guess you can't go too wrong at £1.39 though

So to someone who hasn't played that much L4D (but enjoyed it when I did), is the sequel worth a punt at the sale price?

The honours list these days is pretty much just a mention of popularity. 50 years ago the list was much shorter and contained mainly people who had done something noteworthy over a protracted period of time. These days those people are still on there but they also bung on a load of people who are famous and recently did something big because they need the PR.

I'm a bit late joining this discussion, but I have to say that I absolutely love my iPhone (I was late joining that bandwagon too). The massive range of apps is one of the main reasons for this, and a major reason for why I wanted it, but why not? Anything that adds to the range of functions a product has can't be bad.

But the quality of the sound you get on phone calls is fantastic and network coverage (for O2 at least) is brilliant. The only places I've managed to cause it problems are deep in the Cotswolds and miles away from anywhere in the Highlands - even then the signal was simply unreliable and never went for long. And now there's even a choice of operators so you can probably find one to suit any location.

I've dropped it a handful of times (from about 5 feet off the ground due to not being used to the shape or getting used to the case I have) and nothing's gone wrong yet. I've jailbroken it both successfully and unsuccessfully, and iTunes never fails to restore factory settings without a hitch.

So er, yeah, that went a little long. But you get the jist. I've not used that many other smartphones, but I've tried a couple of Blackberrys and some new Nokia and Samsung things and while they offer a lot of the same functions it comes down to the selection of apps to make the deciding factor. Everyone in my band got an iPhone after trying somebody else's

I've got nothing much planned myself either. Me and the other half watching Jools Holland, I expect I've been hoping for the past 5 years or so to be playing on it rather than just watching, but it hasn't happened yet. Maybe next year!

Happy new year (soonish), those at the front of the world

I reckon Mike is the first person I've ever heard mention "American cars" and "oversteer" in the same breath. Most people call them boats for the simple reason they tend not to turn immediately when you tell them to

I've not noticed any major physics changes between the two versions, though I guess the tyre flex might change some of it. It is possible that your 'Ring example was down to a slightly different track model as well as any minor physics changes.

There was a stock Cobra championship in FM2, wasn't there? I had to hire the AI to do it because I found driving the thing so frustrating. Had a similar issue with the old Ford GT40

Pretty much the saddest individual on the entire net. Read the article hazaky posted and then try to imagine the conversations between him and himself, 2264 times.

First gig of 2010 set up for January 2nd. Ring in the New Year (a little bit late) at The Horn. Be among the first to hear what effect the recording process has had on the new songs! Learn the words in time for the album release in spring!

Yes I should update this thread more often, but I forget.

Yes, that one actually made me laugh as well. In fact, even though I knew it was coming this time I still snorted

I think you have to admire the work, even if it is utterly pointless. After all, the entire throttle system would have to be designed from scratch, god knows what kind of brakes it'll need since there shouldn't be much mechanical braking.

My biggest worries are for people around him. If that bonnet is 270 degrees C, what happens if you need to open it? Or, worst case, if you run into someone or something. The heat of the metal plus the jet firing out the top would melt everything around it and potentially ignite the already-highly-dangerous jet fuel.

Yes, before him I didn't think it was possible to fail at the internet. But somehow he managed it.

But it's (or I guess it WAS) an interesting social experience. You just know he was one of those kids who set fire to cat tails, or at least wanted to, stomped on tadpoles, strangled bunnies and all that other kind of stuff that means you're heading for complete sociopathy. Would anyone be surprised if he ended up opening fire in a crowded plaza? I don't think so.

Why would anyone choose to "rent" a license for that period when they could pay exactly the same amount for S1 content forever? That's ridiculous. There's no incentive for anyone to sign up for it.

Of course it is. The guy will probably have created a new forum somewhere and left that one open for registrations so people will leave him alone. He's still a legendary internet failure though - create some topics to tell him

They're trying too hard to be Suicide Girls. But then the SGs are try-hards these days too. Not like it was a few years ago.

Yeah, the NSFW mention would've been useful before I opened a pic staring down the cleavage of a chick in a basque. Still, it's Xmas so nobody would mind

There's a short animation I made when learning Flash a few years ago that I think says more than anything.

Quote from The Very End :and the rally pack.

You mentioned it! You should NEVER mention the rally pack!

The problem with any community is that once people feel comfortable they start thinking that everyone wants to hear what they have to say, no matter how utterly inane it might be. So there's the spam threads and posts covered.

In conversations of a serious nature, people are posting about things they feel strongly about (religion being one of those things). It's impossible to have a conversation without more than one viewpoint and it's pointless to try and have a conversation if none of the parties involved are willing to listen as much as they speak. So they quickly devolve from reasonable discussions to full-blown hate spam arguments. That's what happens when everyone assumes they're right about everything.

I always say, the average IQ is inversely proportionate to the population. The more people in one place, the more stupid the group mind becomes. The same applies here. When it's a handful of friends nobody wants to upset the others because it will negatively affect them. Once you approach hundreds of active users losing one you're not that close to isn't such a big deal. Sad times.

Noobs, this is my 29th. In fact, technically this is my 30th year, since you only get congratulated for surviving at the end of that year

You reckon there's still enough S2 licenses getting sold to cover their bills and stuff? I wouldn't count on it, otherwise we'd be seeing a lot more active users on the list.

LFS is clearly a labour of love, not an early retirement plan

Not one I've heard, but then I've been out of the country for almost a decade now.
Maybe a typo, what with 'a' and 'o' being so close on the keyboard
