Re: console battle GRAND FINALE - SUPER NINTENDO VS XBOX 360

My vote has to go for the 360.

Not too shabby... Alonso qualified 5th! Goes to show what a wasted talent he is in the McLaren.

He ended up 7th and in the super shoot-out Sunday afternoon! Not bad going...

Nasty crash for Sebastien Bourdais as he suffered "multiple fractures to his pelvis and a fracture to his right hip" and is undergoing surgery. Hut the wall with an almighty bang at over 200mph :shock:

The English Whiskey is from 'The English Whisky Co. It's called Chapter 17 - Limited edition and 56.7%... A rather expensive prezzie from my son for Christmas :D

Would love to get up to Yorkshire - but yeah, it's not exactly 10 mins up the road :lol:

Re: Real Ale Drinkers or Lagerboys?

Oh dear! You'd expect something quite special at 12%...

I'm drinking a very large Talisker Skye as I seem to have finished a different bottle last night. Tasty single malt this one - far far superior to the Glen Morey that seems to have evaporated :oops:

Re: Today

Today the last 5 months of hell seemed to hit me really hard. Never been depressed before. Whiskey is helping and putting a stiff upper lip when around people is getting harder to achieve. Not in the best of places at the mo and finding it very hard to talk to people and show my feelings. Very hard ...

Re: Retro Gamer 168

Now THIS is a good issue! Would have preferred a Half Life 2 cover but I suppose Rogue Squadron will do :D Quick flick through and noticed Darran calls the game Rouge Squadron in his little intro :wink:

Will be diving in on my day off tomorrow for a good read.
