  • @Capcom_Unity [br] PS3Attiude.Brodiesan.babyCount == 0; I do have a dog though. And she’s more demanding than ANY child. in reply to Capcom_Unity #
  • [br] “Why the PSP failed.” “Why OnLive will FAIL.” God, I detest these types of articles. How about: “Why Games Journalism is failing”? #
  • [br] You know it’s a good game when you’ve played it a good deal so you can write a comprehensive review … and then you keep on playing it #
  • [br] Words you are not allowed use across the new PS3 chat feature. “Fallout” (becomes *****ut) and “engine” (becomes *****e). What the … #
  • @colossalblue There’s a list of “bizarre” words being documented. I can understand Jesus and Hitler. But what if you’re a Simon or Peter? in reply to colossalblue #
  • @coverton [br] “To the Fallout Engineâ„¢ Comrades! For tonight we drink Capitalist blood!” icon wink Twitter Weekly Digest for 2009 04 19 Another bizarre banned word: “Connection”. in reply to coverton #

  • If you’re one of our US followers, and want 773 free MP3 files from Amazon, follow this link – http://is.gd/saCt – they’re not all crap…! #
  • @cc_starr Indeed – in fact, there’s a whole bunch of good stuff there for free. Of course, you could just use Spotify instead… in reply to cc_starr #

  • @cc_starr Enjoy that. We hear Suzi Perry likes a good double en tendre. Give her one for us, won’t you? in reply to cc_starr #
  • @born4thesurf Except if we all drove electric cars, we’d be in a worse energy position than now. Hydrogen hybrids are the only answer… in reply to born4thesurf #

  • [br] Got an official “no comment” from a studio regarding a game no one knows much about other than the fact it exists. I’ll keep trying … #
