Future First Person Shooters

So you think your PC is so amazing that the graphics are near realistic? You ain’t seen nothing yet!

Looks like they haven’t improved the spawn system in COD 15 either. Oh well. (via)

Every OS Sucks

I’m sure I’ve heard this before but the video is new to me. Enjoy!

Odd that their C64 isn’t plugged in. The power cable went in at the side. The joystick ports are strangely blacked out too. Gosh, might it not be a real Commodore 64? (via)

The Return of 'Allo 'Allo

Sometimes I’m glad I look in my spam folder. I spotted this delightful email subject:

Important massage from Federal Ministry of Finance

It reminded me of the BBC sitcom, ‘Allo ‘Allo which anyone living in the UK or Ireland and probably further afield will immediately recognise. Luckily I found this video of clips from the “Return of” show aired in 2007. Hilarious stuff!

Huge Xbox 360 price hike on the way

Well, this is shocking. I’m glad I bought my Xbox 360 a while back before this price hike went into effect.

For those who don’t know, visit the Xbox 360 Elite page for Ireland. See that price? Looks like we get gouged yet again with sky high prices in rip off Ireland. *sigh*

I bet you thought the minor price hike in the UK was bad. At least Microsoft could blame a weak currency but we’re in the Eurozone for crying out loud!

PS. I can recommend without reservation the new Batman game. I’m a few hours into it now and it’s enthralling. It has to be the best superhero game ever. The scene in the morgue with the Scarecrow had me freaked out and just a little scared.
D’you remember the Batman stories where he fought Scarecrow? It’s one thing to read it and watch Batman’s reactions to the fears planted by the poisoned gases, but quite another to be right-in-there-feeling-the-fear. Can’t wait to play it again!
