I was definitely a fan of the RE series but I'd never use the word 'puzzle' in any descriptive sentence, unless the words 'not really' were also there. Mostly it was tedious inventory management with fetch & carry mechanics to drag out the length of the game a little. The only 'puzzle' I remember fr...

Yeah, pretty chilly isn't it. We were only 24 degrees today. A massive drop from 40 yesterday.

Re: Books You Would Like To Read

Anything by Freidrich Nietzche - I have Beyond Good And Evil and Thus Spake Zarathustra on my bookshelf. I read random pages from them, but I've never found the time to just sit down and read them all the way through. The Anti-Christ is one of the most influential books I've ever read - though prob...

Ah, but what could Kierkegaard teach you about the raising of the wrist? ;)

We get the US version over here and it was consistently one of the funniest things on TV. I'm guessing the US version has much higher production values, and as a result is probably better. The commentators had a very dry sense of humour that worked really well, and made a big difference from the usu...

GET OUT NOW WHILE YOU STILL CAN... Australia is where it's at. A Western country that might possibly manage to avoid recession due to the fact that it's built entirely on massive quantities of highly valuable minerals. Twenty million people in a country that could house seven billion. Decent weather...

So would everybody rather we had a set list that everyone had to choose from :? Yes, preferably one provided by the government. Actually, I am led to believe that this is the case in France.

I'd go The Ledge, Quitters Inc. or Jerusalem's Lot by Stephen King (all from Night Shift).
