    Phil says…
    2) Regarding online multiplayer: I had heard that it was just going to be something corny, like one player races, uploads their ghost, and then you race against that player?s ghost.

    If that is the case then it’d piss of a lot of people, considering that the online in MarioKart DS is so good.

    It’s possible using the Mario Paint Composer for Windows/OSX (Google it) but not in Mario Paint itself, I think.

    Before Donna convinced him to go back, both Donna and the Doctor drew parallels to the destruction of Gallifrey, and the Doctor mentioned that he’s just as unable to go back to Pompeii to save anyone as he is to travel back to the Time War and stop the destruction of his own planet. Is this perhaps laying the seed – in the Doctor’s mind, if not the story as a whole – of the Doctor going back to the Time War? Could this be seed-planting for the finale, or perhaps that “fanwanky” 2009 special Russell T Davies has mentioned previously?

    Did Somebody say something?
    Umm? Series 1 theme != Series 2-3 theme (and there might have been some more subtle tweaks between 2 & 3).

    The S1 theme was built from samples, and had no middle eight.

    The S2-3 theme(s) was (were) performed by the National Orchestra of Wales. And had the middle eight.

    The difference isn?t so drastic as the S4 theme, but the original Delia Derbyshire theme elements were far stronger in the S1 theme. They kind of got buried in the live-orchestra theme.

    The Series 2-3 theme is little more than an expanded version of the Series 1 theme, as the only involvement the National Orchestra of Wales had was recording that extended version including the middle eight for the end credits (which was also mixed into the “album version” of the theme included in the Series 1 & 2 soudntrack). There is very little difference between the series 1 and series 2-3 opening titles, and so I consider them to be the same theme.

    Because they are the same theme.

    So there.

    Phil thrust his sword through the heart of the Demon King and cried…
    And I can say this: laaaaaaaag.

    It’s bad if you’re just doing random match against someone you don’t know. A lot of people are actually entirely unable to play a game online with strangers at the moment. It just kicks them out. This has happened to me a couple of times.

    Fortunately games against Friends is a lot more stable, although it does depend on the connection quality of the person you’re playing against. Earlier today I played a game of Brawl against my friend in the UK who has a bit of a crap wireless network connection and the lag was excruciating.

    Moments before climax, Phil exclaimed…
    It?s fun, don?t get me wrong, but it?s kind of frustrating when you?re all set to use Luigi?s firepunch, but the game slows down, your character isn?t responding, and then you leap spectacularly off the platform and into oblivion.

    I did that with Sonic the Hedgehog earlier on 75m. Spin-attacked right off the right edge of the screen.

    To his parents’ amazement, Phil’s first words were…
    Anyone else who has Smash and wants to make me so angry that I put my classic controller through the screen of my new television, feel free to post your friend codes as well.

    Classic Controller? Pfft. Wavebird all the way.

    Zombie Dave sent this message by Codec. His frequency is 140.85. Message begins…
    Oh and I HATE the new theme-tune. It?s suddenly become utterly unmajestic and bland.

    I thought that when I heard it on VOTD, but I have the MP3 on my iPod and it pops up in the shuffle every now and then. Each time it does, it grows on me a little. I still prefer the Series 1-3 theme, though. Overall it’s my favourite Who theme EVAR, very closely followed by Peter Davison’s theme. I actually have a very spiffy MP3 of the Series 1-3 theme re-created using elements from Davison’s theme if anyone wants me to share.

    Once again I found myself enjoying Catherine Tate’s appearance. I hate her sketch show but she seems fairly competent on Who. The episode as a whole, though, was a bit Meh.

    And, as a mark of just how much of a unique little gremlin I am, this is oddly the first time since the show was revived where I felt the music cues were horribly put together. It was just sloppy work. The random, slapdash insertion of the “Doomsday” music when Rose appeared just seemed awful and rushed, and detracted from the moment for me (although it was a superb little surprise all told). I think it would have worked much better had Murray Gold actually composed some music for this scene. It deserved more.

    Do you have the Orange box on a console or you a PC gamer? If you?re on Steam we should, like, TOTALLY add each other as friends.

    I have TOB for the PC and the 360. I have friends I only have the 360 version and I wanted to be able to play TF2 with them, but it’s also amusing logging on and watching the sort of person who usually only plays Halo try to play TF2 and fail miserably. There’s a certain amount of pleasure to be had backstabbing someone who is teabagging their latest kill.

    I have COD4 for the PC. I haven’t really devoted a lot of time to it, but in terms of Online Multiplayer it just doesn’t hold a candle to Team Fortress 2 so far as I’m concerned. My opinion may not be particularly valid, mind – the last game I used to play online competitively was Serious Sam: The Second Encounter…

    The Orange Box is phenomenal though, and Portal is definitely the best game of last year, as well as probably one of the greatest games of all time. I’d certainly rank it close to The Secret of Monkey Island (which, as we all know, is the greatest game of all time).

    Fun Fact: I’m originally from England. Shocking, I know! I’m not from Yorkshire mysel – born in Milton Keynes, raised in Luton, and somehow I’ve managed to not grow up into Chavvery – but my Uncle is and I picked up a lot of slang from him as a young’n.

    Getting back to vidjagames with Dwarf references in it, this thread inspired me to finally pick up a copy of The Feeble Files, in which Robert Llewellyn voices the main character. The game was developed by Adventure Soft, who also developed Simon the Sorcerer.

    ScummVM supports The Feeble Files, but I have to convert the FMV from Bink format into something ScummVM supports. It’s given me instructions but I can’t understand them. They may as well be printed backwards in a poorly-translated instructional manual for a Cantonese VCR player for all I can do with them.

    Marleen puts words ON THE INTERNET!
    *I* think that The End is brilliant and that it does introduce the characters very nicely.

    It?s ironic though, most of the Red Dwarf fans (*is looking at YOU and YOU and also YOU*) seem to think that The End is a bad first episode to watch when starting with Red Dwarf, and that it was for the best that it, along with the rest of series one, wasn?t broadcast for years after its initial release. So not introducing the Hyperdrive characters kind of can?t be that much of a flaw? (and also, a good character introduction in the pilot certainly wouldn?t have helped Phil who was looking at random bits)

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who likes The End. It wasn’t the first episode I ever saw (I’m fairly certain that was Emohawk) but it does introduce the characters incredibly well. While it may be the case that not a lot actually happens in the episode (oh, save for the death of almost the entire crew, the evolution of a species, and the rise and fall of an entire fucking civilization) I still think The End is the best entry point for the show.

    I had no idea who the characters were, which doubtless hindered my enjoyment.

    This is one of the flaws of Hyperdrive, I think – you’re never introduced to the characters properly. You have no idea who’s who, what characters are like. The only character who’s really given any sort of definition is Kevin Eldon Security Man Guy.

    Red Dwarf, on the other hand, gives you everything you need in the pilot. Lister and Rimmer and firmly defined by their opening scene. Cat’s introduction sums him up nicely. Holly’s dialogue following Lister’s release from stasis puts him across well. Hyperdrive didn’t even bother with anything like this.

It’s called Good Ship Chronicles, and it’s probably best described as “The Office meets Star Trek” – it’s about a reality TV show being filmed aboard a starship where the real Nobodies of the StarCorp fleet end up. It’s The Last Dead End In Space. It’s probably the sort of ship Rimmer would’ve likely wound up on.

    Now that is an interesting point.

    Most feminists I’ve met have been of the opinion that the answer to Sexism against Women is Sexism against Men, which is, of course, utter shash.

    The Da Vinci Code is a terrible mess of a book.

    I hope you don’t mind, Seb, but I borrowed your name for this Ficlet.

    My, my, my, it’s a beautiful world,
    I like swimming in the sea.
    I like to go out beyond the white breakers,
    Where a man can still be free, or a woman if you are one.
    I like swimming in the sea.

    My, my, my, it’s a beautiful world,
    I like drinking Irish tea.
    With a little bit of Lapsang Souchong.
    I like making my own tea.

    My, my, my, it’s a beautiful world,
    I like driving in my car.
    I roll the top down, sometimes I travel quite far.
    Drive to the ocean, stare up at the stars.
    I like driving in my car.

    All around is anger,
    Automatic guns.
    There’s death in large numbers,
    No respect for women or our little ones.
    I tried talking to Jesus
    But he just put me on hold.
    Said he’d been swamped by calls this week
    And he could not shake his cold.

    And still this emptiness persists,
    Perhaps this is as good as it gets.
    When you?ve given up the drink and those nasty cigarettes,
    Now I leave the party early, at least with no regrets,
    I watch the sun as it comes up, I watch it as it sets,
    Yeah this is as good as it gets.

    Well my, my, my, it’s a beautiful world,
    I like sleeping with Marie.
    She is one sexy girl full of mystery.
    She says she doesn’t love me but she likes my company.
    For now that’s good enough for me.

    Well my, my, my, it’s a beautiful world,
    I like swimming in the sea.
    I like to go out beyond the white breakers,
    Where a man can still be free, or a woman if you are one.
    I like swimming in the sea.
