What are you doing to keep yourself busy until the release of the new film?

Me, I'm locking myself in a cupboard with a stack of progs and megs and denying the existence of anyone named Gav.

Film & TV / Kung Fu Fighting...
« on: 03 July, 2012, 08:32:48 PM »
I watched The Legend of Drunken Master over the weekend and got to thinking about how much time I've wasted watching Kung Fu films. I have a real weakness for these films, especially the ones with the bad dubbing and over the top stories and action.

To those of you that have a similar proclivity for these types of films (martial arts) what are some of your favourites, both good and bad?

For those of you that follow it the 2012 Euro is about get under way today and shockingly the Match of the Century is set to be the very first fixture. Poland v Greece. These two titans of football are set to clash in a match that will no doubt shock and awe the world of football. Brazil will be watching this match closely in anticipation of the 2014 World Cup. Shaking in fear at the outcome of this match.

In other news Uefa quietly revealed the tournament trophy with Germany's name already inscribed as this year's winners.

Games / MechWarrior Online and MechWarrior Tactics
« on: 24 March, 2012, 08:31:34 PM »
I've been playing Battletech and then Mechwarrior since they first appeared, and after a long wait, not one, but two new major Mechwarrior games are due to appear.

Both are due out in 2012 some time.

MechWarrior Online
A great website with lots of info and a large and active forum.

MechWarrior Tactics
Not much going on here yet, but you can reserve your commander name now. Here is a video of game play though.


Off Topic / Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
« on: 08 March, 2012, 07:50:43 PM »
Thirty-four years ago today Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy first aired on Radio 4. I will extend my jealousies to anyone that heard it that day.

Here's a link with some fun facts from SFX.

Today is Charles Dickens 200th birthday. Regardless of whether you read or even like Dickens his work had a monumental influence on literature and fiction of all kinds.

If CD was alive today he'd write for 2000AD.


Games / Recommend an MMO please
« on: 12 December, 2011, 04:03:32 PM »
Hello all,

I'm thinking of starting up a new MMO. I already have played LotR, Star Trek, and Star Wars Galaxies. I'd like  to try something new. I'm considering Age of Conan, but am open to any suggestions from other MMO players.

Welcome to the board / Hello out there

Just dropping in to say hallo to everyone.

I've been a Dredd fan since the 80's, but I only just recently started subscribing to AD2000 and the Megazine through my local comic shop. Up 'til now I've had to get my fix through trades and the odd batch of 'zines whenever I'm in the UK.
