Re: The Official Gaming Thread

Alien Isolation looks good enough for me to pre-order, so I should be able to fill you in next Tuesday when it comes out (why on a Tuesday, I don't know. Seems kinda random.). No reviews for it yet, which seems odd considering it comes out in 5 days. If MKX looks like the preview videos they showed...

Re: How stupid do Top Gear think we all are?

I'm not a Top Gear fan - for the last several years I have felt the style is old and boring and far too scripted for my liking. I like some of the controversy - not the controversy itself as such - but the fact that Clarkson does at least try to speak his mind, which in this day and age is all too ...

Re: How stupid do Top Gear think we all are?

Can I point out that I was personally not singling out Clarkson, in fact my beef is with the production team and decision makers which may or may not include him. The chances of the car he bought having that number plate by chance are inconceivably small. The program can be massivly entertaining be...

I think I read somewhere that Jeremy Clarkson's annual income is £14m and I wondered to myself, what is it that any person in the world can do that relates in any way to an amount of work (time and effort) that equates to £14m p.a.?

Positives;

Doesn't look like a building site (hi Korea!), I actually quite like some the buildings and architecture.

Barriers! Quite close to the track!

Negatives;
