sky typos

Ok so I make a lot of typos, but I am not enticing you to spend lots of cash on my content.
This sky box office advert seems to have gone a bit, well, wonky.
I think its applies to one pc, thats what they are trying to put in the smallprint

halloween predlet1.0

Just to add to the madness of virtual and real life we went to fancy dress shop to equip predlet1.0 with a vampire costume.
The weird things was it was absolutely not weird.
The costume shop was full of wings, attachments, makeup, tattoos and flexi dresses.
Where on earth have I come across that before.
The only thing missing was a salsa dancing pose ball

You predlet 2.0 appears to be taking the virtual power of fighting games, dragon punches, fireballs etc and rendering them in the real life. :-)

A convincing argument on our future?

Nick Wilson twittered this recently, so I took a look. I started to expect a spoof, but it is not. I started to think yes but, in order to pick some holes. The guy has done the thing I like to do, select the extremes and see where it takes you. I found this very thought provoking, see what you think its only a few minutes

Project Gotham 4 - Tis good

I have beenn playing the gotham games since they were metropolis street racer on the dream cast. They thrive on teh fact that they are about style, aswell as speed. The Kudos system and chaining mad slides and drifts together make for a very entertaining style of driving game. Now PGR4 is here, more of the same, but better on the 360.
Now there are also bikes, and you have even more style options such as this wave tot hte crowd.
Even stationaru things look pretty good
They have also mixed in the old and the new. I got to drive this around the old Nurbergring in this old maserati in the snow. A fantastic experience for a driving game
Things like weather effects are quite important to the atmosphere, puddles of standing water feel rock solid as you hit them and get a rumble pack jolt.
The music is pretty cool too, I enjoyed razzing around in a scooby with Ruby by the Kaiser chiefs, and Our velocity by Maximo Park blasting out.
Some of the car damage is also quite subtle, look at the scratches on the side of this one
So yes Halo is good, but so is this :-) I need to play online now I have a few miles under my sparco belt, but no reason to think it will be a bad experience :-)
Subtle little extras I have seen, Geometry Wars in the garage again, a new wave based version. Also you can upload shots to share with people. If you wander around your garage the walls will get populated randomly with other peoples photos of car incidents. You can walk up to them and vote on them. Nice touch for serendity and Web 2.0 there.
