    "Now Showing"

    Re: "Now Showing" The original script touched a lot more on Stark's alcoholism (as was hinted at throughout Iron Man 2), but Disney rejected the first draft and made them remove the sub-plot: That's Disney having their hands all over the film.

    The Change: Parks going down-hill/up-hill

    I think Disneyland Paris has been getting steadily worse in recent years. The vast majority of the guests seem to have no regard for other people and the staff seem too fed up and lazy to actually bother inforcing the rules (anyone who takes flash photos on Pirates of the Caribbean needs to go...

    The Games we play...

    Limbo is one of the worst downloadable games I've played this generation. I don't understand how it reviewed so well. It's a broken platformer, the visuals get old after the first half an hour (the spider bit is the only properly atmospheric section) and the puzzles are designed to screw you...

    You'd be surprised: Countdown honchos tell Rachel Riley to stop dressing so darn sexy So no more skimpy dresses, it seems.

    Gigs 'n' Tours

    I was at that Joan Rivers gig! Third row from the front, slap-bang in the middle, absolutly terrifying. The support were pretty good too, especially the song about Nando's.

    Alton Towers - Updated LTDP

    I hope they renovate the flume rather than removing it completely. If it were a bit smoother it'd be one of the best flumes I've been on. It's also the most terrifying. *QUACK*

    I imagine the next evolution of the 3DS (ie: 3DS-2) would have a second stick included as standard if it really required it. The 3DS XL isn't that console. As the name suggests, it's a 3DS but bigger. The control layout had to stay the same to ensure that 3DS games would be equally as playable...

    Because it's an optional extra that the bare minimum of games use.

    The Games we play...

    You might not like it, but to say it's crap is insane. And the "It's the same game again" argument rather annoys me about Ocarina of Time. The 3DS version is a remake, like REmake back on the Gamecube, or Halo: Anniversary last year. The Gamecube discs featuring the original N64 version (which...

    The TV we watch...

    The first season is probably the best. They ruin Chang's character in season 2, and it takes them until the end of season 3 to get him even close to as good an antagonist as he was as the crazy Chinese Spanish teacher. The Dean is amazing, though. There's a few stand-alone episodes in season 3...

    "Now Showing"

    Re: "Now Showing" Batman Begins > The Dark Knight Rises > The Dark Knight Hathaway is lush. Thought the pacing was much better in TDKR than it was in TDK. Despite being longer than TDK there was no awkward "when will this be over? Oh, there's another villain to take care of yet" moment.

    Favorite dark ride shooters

    Yes! The ride itself is great, but the building is poorly thought out. The train goes straight through the queue :s Strangely vague lasers, too (I guess to make it more accessible for the kids). Love the animatronics on it. I still think Buzz Lightyear's Laser Blast at Disneyland Paris is my...

    How many death creds do you have?

    The only death credit worth mentioning: Scariest ride ever According to the coasterforce list the only other death cred I've got is the Rock n' Roller Coaster (at Disneyland Paris).

    Coasterforce's view on Dubstep

    I think this conveys everything I think about Dubstep much more eloquently than I could ever put it.

    The Games we play...

    I hate myself for saying this, but LucasArts started producing rubbish Star Wars games after they began developing for consoles too. Dark Forces 1 and 2 were great, and then Dark Forces 3 (Jedi Knight 2) was made for the Gamecube as well and it was, to put it politely, awful. I still haven't...

    Gigs 'n' Tours

    Saw Blink 182 on Thursday (with support from Four Year Strong and the All American Rejects). I was expecting All American Rejects to be terrible, but almost all the songs they played filled me with nostalgia for my mid-teens. Made me feel really old, too. The lead singer has such a horrendous...

    Laws Regaurding G-Forces On Coasters

    I'm fairly sure that the maximum G-force values in both the ATSM (F2291-11) and Eurocode (I'm not sure of the name for the Eurocode standard, but it seems to be slightly less strict than the British Standard BS EN 13814:2004) standards is 6G at most (parallel to the spine and for a period of a...

    E3 Opinions?

    Not entirely sure using a motion-sensing camera for voice commands that could be done with any cheap microphone can really be classed as "using kinect to it's fullest". To be honest, it seems like they've realised that Kinect's motion sensing capabilities aren't really accurate to do most...

    Music Recommendations

    Saw them live back in January, absolutely fantastic The atmosphere when they played Midnight City (from Hurry Up, We're Dreaming) was sublime. Amazing tune.
