Very sad and shocked to hear this news.
We only met once in person, but remained FB friends.
Thoughts to his family.

Yes, it is also reminiscent of Speedball 2 too.

There's a game currently seeking funding on kickstarter called DREADBALL. It reminds me a lot of some of the early 2000ad stories, such as Harlem Heroes, Inferno, Mean Team, and the like.
Whilst many gamers are drawing comparisons with Blood Bowl.
Fans of those golden age stories, might like to check it out:

Forgive my ailing brain.
Which current 2000ad stories (say last year or so) contain strong female lead characters?

Man, I got infected and killed overnight.

I'll make my way north.

Edit: I'm now at Within Drive, and I need a revive :-)

Surely Lego would only be available if Rebellion did a deal with Lego themselves; and I'm not sure that Lego see 2000ad as a particularly large market (as it is) come the JD film, who knows- Lego's saving grace has been the movie tie-ins that they did, specifically with Star Wars, but also Batman, Harry Potter, and more recently Pirates of The Carribean, Indiana Jones, and Prince of Persia.
On the positive side, they do seem to like to market to the "older geek", so never say never.

What does this deal mean for Termight Replicas?

Might make my way to Smith Arms- Lamport Hills then, I need something to do, and I can't take Creedy on my own.

That being said, the areas surrounding Lamport Hills are pretty hot with Zeds right now.

Just to confirm that this game died a death. Due to not working on it over a long period of time, and not keeping sufficient notes, I lost my way, and I'm pretty sure the files have all but been deleted now.

However I have just restarted playing Urban Dead.
Is anyone else still playing U.D.?

If anyone is, and fancies a meet up, then make your way to Peppardville. Giddings Mall just fell (overnight), and Fort Creedy is in zombie hands.

I bought a PS3 last November.
I own two games for it Red Dead Redemption, and Fifa 11.
Red Dead Redemption is still in the wrapper.

But my eldest lad and I play Fifa all the time.

Gotta love computer football!

Since August, I've given my bank manager plenty to complain about. How?
I've reignited my interest in gadgets. Probably one of the most expensive hobbies about due to a the sheer magnitude of items available. Until a few weeks ago I still had a 15" screen that filled ½ the office, let alone the desk! I still run Office 2000, an upgrade is just too expensive at the moment. Although I am looking forward to Windows 7. Vista was justa bad dream, right? I will be upgrading my laptop soon it must be 5 years old by now, and is so sluggish it takes near on ½ hour to start up (is it the HP printer drivers, or the constant Zone Alarm securty upgrades?), and sometimes just as long shutting down.

I've recently bought:
1) Humax Foxsat-HDR
2) Sagem HD PVR 101-ST
3) Canon PowerShot SX200 IS
4) iPhone 3GS
5) iPod Nano (for Mrs Dane)

The embers have been relit.
Now fuel my fire.
What are your top 5 MUST HAVE gadgets, and why?

I use the Humax for freesat- it's a great box, as it does everything I need. It's hard to find fault, If I have to push, yes it can be a little slow to start up, but it's quicker than the Sagem, and I have once had a recording cut short at the end, although that could be the signal that it was sent, as the previous program went on too long.

I use the Sagem for Canal Digital. It serves it's purpose, but next to the Humax, it looks second rate. The functionality isn't as well defined as the Humax, and the remote is feeble.

I used to have a Grundig DSR-6450, to receive both freesat and CD, BUT it didn't have HD (both the new ones do) and the PVR died on me (twice!) Plus there was no "red button" functionality on the Grundig. Yes it was "easier" having just one box. But on the plus side, I can now record and see up to 7 channels at one time, depending on which channels they are.

The Canon was my impulse buy. I was on holiday, staying with in-law realtives, and was shown the quality of image that the canon had. Compared to my, now ancient,Olympus (with damaged battery cover) I fell in love. Although I have to admit I but off buying it for a few months. But when Amazon launched their £40 cash back offer, I was sold. I also bought 2 extra items with this; a spare battery, and a memory card- both essential kit I feel. I already have a mini tripod, which I used with the Olympus.

The iPod Nano, was a birthday present for Mrs Dane, she's been going to the gym, and power walking, and wanted an mp3 player. She'd also just been competing in a paedometer competition, a few minutes of research, and 5 G from the gadget show, I was sold on getting her the new 5G iPod Nano. She's not into tech, but she seems to enjoy using it, which was a fear of mine. Originally I thought about getting her an iTouch, on the back of the performance of my iPhone- but she didn't want a new phone, but she wanted something that was smaller (more feminine???) and easier to have in her pocket/purse etc.

Then we have my fave new toy, it keeps me up SO late at night, enticing me with more apps, podcasts, and the such, it does so much, and is a long way from my old HP Jordana. If I have one fault with this, it's that they are so hard to comeby here, that I bought the first, and only one I found, and at work a few days later I found someone who had bought the 32GB (I have the 16GB) version, for the same price. I wasn't over charged, based on the prices I have seen, but I was pissed that he was able to get such a good deal. I only got 20% of the accessories that I bought.

So what are your favourite gadgets, and why?

For that matter do you have a favourite software program?
