'Urban' types who refer to London as 'Londontown'. Dunno why but that phrase really annoys me for some reason.

Already started on physical media:Rage on 360, BF3 HD textures instal on 360, MGS4 on PS3 (just for bloody cut scenes), spring to mind.

Dunno about anyone else, but my PS3 on 2nd 250G HDD:Bad sectors killed 1st, PC-less at moment as had 2 PC's die within months of each other, HDD failure in each case.

People in bookshops who just stand there in the middle of the aisle, reading a book from the shelf, not moving.....and I want to look on that shelf, but they are in the way....either buy the book....or do one, before I brain you with the nearest book to hand!

:lol: :lol: :lol: I was thinking the same.

Hopefully now that steve82 has realised that it's as sh!te as last year's game (yeah, I know I bought it as well.... :) ), his initial fanboy enthusiasm will hae worn off a bit.

On saying that, we'll probably get 'WWE 12 isn't that bad after all' next week once he's had a chance to get used to the new controls properly. :wink:

ebay sellers who use stock images when I'm trying to find a specific reprint of a book. PITA - it was so easy back when these perticular reprints were new.
On that note; I'm going through a bit of a nostalgia kick by reading old Anne McCaffrey Dragon books, like I did when I was 13 or so, around 1994. No idea why, I just suddenly really felt like doing it - weird thing is I read online she suddenly died a week ago. Untill recentlyo I hadn't even thought about these books in like 16 years.

I use a Samsung Tocco Lite phone and the 3 panel scrolling wallpaper system really p1sses me off. Whoever came up with that idea needs a good slap.

Oh and network-locked phones having huge unmovable logos on the screen so wallpapers are ruined anyway. Yeah, cheers for that :roll:
