In a quest to see some daylight today I jumped up with a spring in my step to see the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. (Before 12pm it's cheap you see...).

It wasn't as bad as I was expecting given the appalling press it's been getting (mainly, admittedly from pax_draconis. Ok, it lacked the subtlety and the deviance of the graphic novel (in fact it lacked any kind of subtlety) but was an enjoyable romp. Again, I'd been primed that the SFX were a bit poor - but I didn't notice that. The token american was a bit of an annoyance, but they did at least try and put him into some kind of character development (hastily abandoned) for Sir Sean.

A fair few odd comments "Automatic Rifles - where did he get those then?" - well, Captain Nemo seemed to have a stack of them and no-one accused him of being an evil genius; and Ms Harker clearly really wanted to be in Underworld - but who could blame her...

Right - must dash - HALO calls...

I just cant deal with the changes that Mina has suffered, in the film she's a blood drinking loon: totally different from the novel version.

Bah.
Kill Bill tomorrow?

quondam and Little Dan are doing Kill Bill tomorrow. I might be tempted but am due to see it in Reading on Wednesday with fishthecat.

So is Halo any good?

I quite like Red vs Blue...

It's very good fun. MP is especially silly. I prefer a more tactical multiplayer (like Counter-Strike) but its amusing.

Maybe bellagrim will buy it and let me have a peek. I quite like the look of Fire Warrior as well, because it's Quake-engined and it's WH40K, whose richness of detail has always appealed to me; always thought it would make a fab setting for an RPG, if only the wargame geeks could see past the end of their rulers.

Fire Warrior is appalling! Please, don't buy it. Get a copy if you must, but I swear you'll play no more than an hour before getting rid of it.

Truly the worst FPS since 1996.

You should all get Max Payne 2. It's stunning...

Oh boo. I was looking forward to it just to see the Adeptus Astartes (although I'd rather play one than be shooting at them).

Space Marines?

You can get great WH40K skins and levels for Unreal Tournament, you know.

I'd honestly say that they look far, far better than the graphics in FireWarrior, too, despite the fact that they were made by fans & amateurs.

Halo

Space Badgers. Thats what they are - or Chigs as they have been named up here for some reason. Halo is a sexy looking game ... I have never played it but it is one of those single player shooters that it is possible to enjoy watching.

Re: Halo

Chigs? That indicates the presence of a "Space - Above and Beyond" fan.

Re: Halo

Re: Halo

Not me, but I know what you mean...we have a large collection of geeks and nerds oop north so I'm guessing one of them coined it.

Driving a souped up 1930s-style car through the >ahem< streets of 19th century Venice is a neat trick.
