Anyone else struggling with a horrible headache today? I’m going to blame the weather, although considering the closely packed population of rAge this weekend, I’m not ruling out Ebola. Or swine flu. Or whatever that weird plague is in Bloodborne.

Here’s all the news we didn’t post today because we were too busy checking for a low grade fever.

    On a lovely note, our resident make-expert, JJ, mentioned something about DRAG. And he is looking for a new racing game.

    So, in honour of that, I present this pic of a sport he might be interested in:

    DRAG RACING:

            I know a thing about drag.
            That’s what I do with the dead bodies between where I killed them and where I bury them.

            Yeah Austin Powers. As with most movies that comes in three the first one was the best.

      I have just started playing Demon’s Souls. Had it for a few years and never got to it. And my word is it as difficult, but awesome as all the rumours state. So far I have killed 1st boss and spent next few hours just running around aimlessly trying to level up with souls…and then die and try to reclaim those souls.

      Trying very hard not to look at a walkthrough except to see general tips. I am assuming you have played it being the resident Japanophile/RPG guru!

        Haha nice!! Yeah I played Demon’s. I prefer Dark’s world, but Demon’s oppresive and dark enivironments are completely stunning. Glad you enjoying it πŸ™‚ Please let me know how you feel after you faced the Flamelurker boss later in the game πŸ˜‰ hohoho

        P.S…far from a guru. lol just an enthusiast πŸ™‚

    I’m almost too scared to ask, but how was TMNT? Being the fanatical tmnt fan that I am, I will have to watch it but I don’t know if I should look forward to it.

    edit: oh wait, it’s not showing yet is it? doi…

      It starts on Friday, and it was quite fun. You can read the review on the movie site. Rince & I went into it not expecting much, but it only took about 5/10 minutes & I stopped laughing cynically & just laughed. Pretty obviously targeted for kids, but it’s not silly & adults can get plenty out of it too. It’s cool, light fun – which is not a bad thing.

        Cool πŸ™‚ Perhaps I’ll even enjoy it then. Just to be on the safe side, I’ll go ahead and rent the original 2 films just in case I want to wash the Michael Bay taste out of my mouth πŸ˜› At least mr Bay didn’t direct it though, so there is that πŸ™‚
