Comment Re:Bully for Cameron! (Score 1) 400 400

I'm with you on the irresponsibility of politicians, but it seems like the Bullingdon Club usually paid for their damages. Still a disgusting display of wealth and arrogance, but not in the same league as burning down apartments with people still inside, shooting a man so you can steal his car to burn it, or beating a 60-something year-old man to death.

Comment Re:Never been scared by a videogame, not once (Score 2) 126 126

I find horror movies completely un-scary, however scary video games frighten the crap out of me. I have a strange compulsion to buy them, but I never get close to finishing them.

System Shock 2
FEAR
The Penumbra series

All of them scare me so much I have to stop playing, for some reason my imagination runs roit and I end up cowering in a corner (in-game :D ) unable to force myself to move into the next room with the scary noises or whatever...

I think the difference for me is being in control of the action, rather than in movies where I have no control so it doesn't scare me?

Submission + - U.S. to Host World Press Freedom Day in 2011->

rekrowyalp writes: The United States is pleased to announce that it will host UNESCO’s World Press Freedom Day event in 2011. The United States places technology and innovation at the forefront of its diplomatic and development efforts. New media has empowered citizens around the world to report on their circumstances, express opinions on world events, and exchange information in environments sometimes hostile to such exercises of individuals’ right to freedom of expression. At the same time, we are concerned about the determination of some governments to censor and silence individuals, and to restrict the free flow of information.
Oh the ironing.

Comment Probably a console user :) (Score 1) 397 397

It doesn't matter so much on the PC where it can be patched by the community (in the case of Morrowind, Oblivion, Fallout3 anyway) but I'd be gutted if I'd bought any of those games for a console. I don't know how you go about convincing publishers that games need to be released only when they're ready - I'm not going to boycott them, I'm glad I bought Oblivion et al. Maybe some kind of US class action suit would work - not fit for purpose because the quests are so buggy I can't complete them :D

Living on Earth may be expensive, but it includes an annual free trip around the Sun.
