seriously? Martok has Blood Wine and Gagh? I'll bet he knows all the Klingon drinking songs and has a Batleth built into his zimmer...

Thanks for making me so welcome - I think I am going to like it here.

I did watch Battlestar Galactica and it is a complete travesty - although I did enjoy it. The new Baltar/Cylon relationship is an improvement but where is the firing down the launch tube in a viper sequence? And Starbuck as a girl does actually work, but Boomer is dreadful - even if she is a Cylon. I'll give it a few more shows before I decide.
Tonight I'll not only be watching MacGyver In Space and Atlantis but recording them for friends out of the country - both series look to be shaping up nicely - I even heard the lovely Claudia Black will be in MacGyver In Space this year. Mmmmm.

Glad to know that other people have heard of Sky Odyssey - I love a relaxed flying session but it is much funnier to put my mate Tragic in control, he leans into bends when playing GT but Sky Odyssey makes him move about so much he falls out of chairs!

As for Battlefront, I wanted it - drive speeder bikes, use thermal detonators, snipe ewoks, all to THAT music - who wouldn't? But after reading about all the problems with it I thought it best to wait and see if it becomes the game it should be.

Oh and what is LLAP?
I remember a computer virus called llap, and I vaguely recall Llap-Goch the welsh martial art, and I know it is also something to do with the Kosovo Liberation army. But none of those seem to fit the context, I looked it up on that urban dictionary but it gave me nothing.

It is nice to meet you all, I look forward to being shot or beaten by most of you in the near future.
Thanks again for the convivial reception,
Mane.

Oh, and as for SWB... clever people hereabouts have got several servers with fat pipes running ..... with up to 32 HUMAN TYPE PLAYERS at the same time!


Is that getting close?

That the same as on the ps1, ie sitting at right angles to the tele and sharing a controller? Ahh, superb pished up after pub fun. :D


Oh and welcome to OAP towers.
PS: Don't sit with Ocean or Watty when playing burnout. They both use fart power to go faster and leave skid marks on the sofas. :farter: :wink:

You had a job AND a warm place to live? bloody LUXURY!
The Megadrive version was pure and simple top-down graphics, but yes to sharing the pads - never have so many cars veered right, into oblivion, at the shout of "LEFT!" They really don't make 'em like that any more.

and 32 player epic Star Wars battles does sound more like it, the lack of decent hosting sounded like the major problem. Meditate upon this, I will.

Luxury ... We used to have to get out of the lake at three o'clock in the morning, eat a handful of hot gravel, go to work at the mill every day for tuppence a month, come home, and Dad would beat us around the head with a broken bottle... if we were LUCKY!

BTW Micro Machines (Mega Drive) multiplayer is eternaly one of my favourites.....BONUS would be the cry as you stuffed your oponent off a ruler bridge....lol hours of fun.

You're right, you were lucky. I had to get up at ten o'clock at night, half an hourbefore I went to bed, drink a cup of sulphuric acid, work twenty-nine hours a day down at the mill and pay the mill owner for permission to come to work, and when we got home, our mother and father would kill us and dance on our graves singing Halleluja.

You try tellin the young people of today that and they won't believe you.

Thanks Roguetrooper, it's good to be here.

Nice to know that senility still has dignity and bakes exceedingly good cakes too - but you might want to check Kiplin's dosage :wink:

I still do not know what LLAP stands for (or means) and I have to admit it is preying on my mind, I'm going to have a cup of tea and a biscuit (probably named after an Italian revolutionary - Bourbon or Garibaldi or something) to get over this combination of excitement and bafflement.

Hmm, guilty, probably. I'm swiping as many pills as I can get my hands on for a beautiful mosaic..its a private work..just for me....you understand of course I hope.

In my haste to read all the posts made today while I was slaving over a hot text book, I neglected to metion Sav.

Everything you will hear about him is genuine....EVERYTHING ;)

Have fun and I hope to see you in our lounge soon. BTW, anything that looks like a urine-stain but smells like cat vomit is just ch0mps way of remembering his seat...which he always forgets. Its mostly harmless, but you might want to sit on a towel, just to be on the safe side.

The blood wine and Gagh is standard food around here, otherwise known as NHS grub... :wink:

Yes, I do have a Bat'leth built into my zimmer, which I'll be using on Boba for his comments - he is a warrior without honour and deserves it inserting where the sun don't shine... 8O

Er, braincells not working here, Boba. If you know the difference between a geeky games player and a normal games player, it doesn't make you a geek now, does it? Well, in your case, maybe it does... :wink:

Well, Mane, as you can see we like a bit of freindly jibing around here. It's all in good fun really (although to be safe I'm going to hide from Boba for a couple of days... :wink: )

Welcome to the madhouse!
