Okay here's two from me. A few years ago, I stayed with a few friends at their home in Pembrokeshire. The house is essentially an old converted barn. It's been done very well though and is now very lush accommodation. One night I was sleeping and I woke up (so am unsure if what I experienced was a d...

It's only the shop's responsibility if returned within 28 days. After that point it only remains the shop responsibility if you've taken out some kind of extended warranty scheme. Otherwise once you get past the first 28 days, it then reverts to the manufacturer. On the other hand, I'm coming up on ...

I notice no-one's mentioned Sony's "wonderful" PS3 yet. Sorry but I've got to go for the 360 as well. But for different reasons, I'd pick these: Xbox 360 for being the best technically AT THE MOMENT. I'm sure at some point, it'll be superceded by the next Xbox or Playstation. (However to get any bet...

Citroen Saxo.

Mainly because I don't actually need a big car. I also don't have any mods on there at all. I hate seeing cars abused by people too by trying to get them in Max Power.

In most cases, they just look they've driven through Halfords with an electromagnet switched on.

I love that two people have said Pirates, but it's only actually received one vote!

I voted Wii Sports for the sheer innovativeness of it. Something that most of the games on the list don't have.

And annoying "Swam" aliens. And have they also made Halo 3 non-repetetive which was the problem for the first two?

I forgot to mention that we ran this one in work yesterday. Our manager has the surname Rough so it brought up loads of porn sites... (Do you like #### rough? #### rough and tumble, etc)

Funnily enough Woody, it was that post in the "real name" thread that gave me the idea for this thread.

Who are you if you Google your own name?

Disregarding any entries that may actually bring YOU up... Google your own name and tell us what your namesakes do. Don't worry about giving your real names but tell us what other people with the same name as you are famous for. I am... A cricketer An actor on IMDB.com A DJ in Tamworth An angler A s...

Well... I think Geoff appears on my signature each time.

Surname is Owen like the Welsh rugby player Michael (wish I was as talented though...)

Although a very very blatant attempt at phishing... :lol:

Oh I don't want hostilities. I love reading Stuart's columns in the mag. Love his sense of humour - so similar to mine. But this comment was a bit uncomfortable.

Back on track though.

Re: Who's the boss?

Galaxians. I WILL STAB YOU IN THE EYES AND MURDER YOUR PARENTS. Hmm poor choice of words considering recent events for me. However I apologise because as I said earlier in the thread, I didn't like the games. (Never been an old-school shmup fan, preferring modern games of that ilk). And oops... yes...

That's what I mean. So was R-Type the start of it? Or were they called bosses earlier?

When did we first start calling bosses bosses?
