Re: SEGA / Blaze Ultimate LCD portable with SD slot

The Dingoo's pretty good. The pre-installed emulators run Megadrive, NES and Gba games just about perfectly. The CPS1/2 emulators seem to be good too. The Snes emulator is pretty choppy, and won't display text correctly in a couple of games (Secret of Mana comes to mind). The Neo Geo emulator on my...

Just read that Hardy has pleaded guilty to the drugs charges, look like he'll be losing the belt at Genesis.

Granted it's not going to win any awards, but it's a reasonable enough show to be going on with.

Re: Frankie Boyle's Tramadol Nights.

After a while it will be "Oh Frankie's being controversial again" with a shrug of the shoulders while Boyle
tries harder and harder in order to get people to notice him.

Also, what happens when they turn the server off and you won't be able to access your paid downloads anymore? Let's hope that you have them backed up just to be safe.

Re: Adult sites blockage

This will be just as successful as the last Tory 'think of the children' campaign they did back in the early 80s to ban video nasties which was as popular as Thatcher was with the miners. If parents are for this then it's just a way to cover up their lack of parenting skills. There are many things o...

Saw Tron Legacy in 3D at the midnight showing and really enjoyed it; the special effects were great and the plot hangs together better than the first.

On DVD I watched Kiki's Delivery Service which is a sweet and lovely film and on TV it was Phoneshop S1 which was an enjoyable enough sitcom.

Re: Frankie Boyle's Tramadol Nights.

Saw him when he toured in Birmingham and most of his material was recycled from Mock the Week and the show lasted less than a hour so it was pretty poor VFM. As for the TV show, the standup bits were OK but the sketches were patchy at best and you get the impression that he's getting desparate and c...
