Welcome to the next exciting instalment of games, opinions and news!!
I have to say for the first time that there's not a lot going on right now. There is still plenty of work being done behind the scenes on the logo and an even better front end, but it's all work in progress so I can't say much to be honest. As for me, my week has been fairly quiet as well, I've almost completed the purchase of my new place so my property empire is growing slowly but surely.
Onto the real reason you're here. The games. We've had several reviews up this week that you may not have seen. The picks of the bunch would have to be Who wants to be a Millionaire
, Black Jack Hustler
, Era of Eidolon - Dagonar
and Crash ??n?? Burn Turbo
. A whole load of great games and different genres for you to check out. Coming soon though we will have lots more exciting game reviews for you, including the latest stuff from all the big players ?? I-Play, Macrospace and Gameloft. Personally I can't wait! And last but not least, Zoo Tycoon 2 is coming, but we just have to get our tester to stop playing it first. It should be here in the next few days.
Onto this weeks rant. After the amusement of last weeks animal stories, I thought I'd focus on something a bit closer to home this week. Last Saturday saw the Grand National (which is a major horse race here in the UK for all our international readers) be postponed 25 minutes in order to cover the royal wedding. Now I'm not a racing fan in any way, but do have a flutter on the Grand National. But to have it postponed because of the wedding? Come on! Which horse would you rather watch? (sorry, that may have been a bit below the belt). I'm not hugely interested in the royal family but did turn over for a little bit and heard the most amusing comment ever, which is the point of this rant. After the cameras focussing on the bride and groom they shot a few celebrities coming in. Now, I forget who the person concerned was, but they are a major celebrity and the presenter when seeing this celebrity said the following "Look at that. It shows how well connected the Prince of Wales is". How well connected the Prince of Wales is???? He is the PRINCE of WALES. He OWNS Cornwall. His mum is the Queen!! I mean, Brad Pitt may own an $8m mansion outside of LA and be messing around with the woman I would give my right arm to be with but all Charles has to say is "See that large county in England down there? Cornwall? I own that. And the rest of the country belongs to my mum. In fact all the people in the whole of England are her subjects. Who do you have as subjects Mr Pitt? A management company and some PR flunkies?" How well connected the prince is. Christ. Stephen Fry (a great comedian here in the UK) was trying not to burst out laughing when he heard that. I was at home and suffered no such restraint. I wonder what it was like for Charles at school, I mean if a bully stepped up to him all he would have to say would be "you can hit me if you want, but you better be prepared to get to know the London Dungeon pretty well! Plus I'll have you beheaded and then mount your head on my wall as a trophy". I mean I do understand the plight of our messed up royals with all the media attention. Every movement covered in the press right down to Harry's poor GCSE grades (come on man, they were hard in my day but in your day they're a joke! How stupid are you?), it must be tough, but when you're foolish enough to wear a nazi armband at a fancy dress party you deserve all the coverage you get. Plus the attention from women! What a chore that must be. I find it hard enough to meet a woman in London in the best of circumstances but these girls throw themselves at royalty. I mean when you're taking them back to your place and your place happens to be Buckingham palace that puts a different spin on things doesn't it. In their messed up world I really do pity them.
Anyway, we have a new competition for you all so check out the link on the main page. Remember, as Teddy Sheringham once said, "If you're not in, you're out!".
Take care people.
