Re: All things Grand Theft Auto

I'm also using a usb stick for the play disc as the game seemed to need to access it an awful lot when it wasn't installed. Not noticed any difference in performance except for a much quieter xbox 360!!

Re: This week's podcast: L.A. Noire

Atmosphere wise it reminds me of the Dragnet radio show that was originally broadcast after world war II until the late 50's. Phelps even reminded me of Joe Friday in the early part of the game before he falls for the lounge singer (not something conservative Joe Friday would do). It isn't a great d...

Re: Tomb Raider - Cane & Rinse 90

Good podcast chaps, enjoyed the discussion. Having heard about the game missing it's sales target and being sub £20, not long after the release of Bioshock Infinite I went into it will low expectations and consider it a game of the year contender despite some of the shortcomings.

Re: Gaming as a Parent / Raising little Gamers

The effect of gaming on children’s behaviour I have noticed a negative effect on my son's behaviour when we switch the games console off. We do prewarn him but we have temper tanturms about 50% of the time. Having spoken to my Mum about this she can remember a grumpy son when she did the same to me...

Great pics. I love urban exploration photographs. There are plenty of websites out there to 'explore' on this subject.

Re: Book Recommendations

I'll second Doggett's choice, got both of the books of blood for xmas but only finished the first one. Be warned though some of Clive Barker's stories are on the weird side of things!! I have also read and enjoyed this collection this year. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Alone-Horrors-Fiction-Campbell-1961...

Re: iOS Gaming

Not really encountered anything that annoyed me yet. I wont be spending any cash on it, and I guess if it gets to the point where I need to in order to progress I'll just delete it. The racing is pretty fun, and I've been playing it a couple of days with no problems so far. Every time you upgrade y...

Re: iOS Gaming

Real Racing 3 was out yesterday - it's really good! Free as well. By the way, I don't know if anyone bothers with Game Centre on iPhone, but the only reason I don't is because I've never actually added anyone. If you iPhone game add me - Alex79uk I think there are lots of leaderboards etc for RR3. ...
