I may be some time...

I mentioned earlier this week that I had had two new entrants in the 'Yard. The first, Unreal Tournament, left me cold. Not just chilly, but freezing - Captain Oates style . I've heard great things about it and have observed an aquaintance play it online (granted it was about 5 years ago, on the PC), but having sampled it's 'delights' for myself, I will make the following statement to the first person I bump into on the way to work in the morning - "It's Shite." And yes, that was a capital 's.' It's not that it's a bad game...it's just a bit, well, pointless. It's the Dreamcast equivalent of Turok: Rage Wars but -get this - NOT AS GOOD!

Quite.

The other new contestant faired slightly better. Ladies and Gentlemen, say Hello to Rush 2049! I have to admit that I've fallen in love with this game, which is strange because the technician who manufactured me said my cold mechanical heart could never know true love and then slapped me across the face with an old slipper. Aaaanyway, moving ever so swiftly on, I've finally written a review of Rush 2049 and it can be found...

Here.

Also, I'm still on the quest to change that LED, but I need to get a soldering iron first and seeing as baked beans (see right) are cheaper and more essential to maintaining basic life functions than a soldering iron, the project may be delayed by a week. Or maybe two. It will not be a Wembley Stadium sized delay though, and is unlikely to cost the British taxpayer several million pounds. Thank you for your co-operation.

I rented Rush 2049 a long time ago for the Nintendo 64 and enjoyed it, but I recently played it at a crappy restarante arcade and I didnt seem to enjoy it too much... hmm, maybe its because Burnout 3 makes it seem mediocore in comparasion?

Ha ha, that's possible. Rush 2049 is a little basic compared to most new releases, but I have owned all of the Rush games and for some reason really enjoy the crash/bang style of gameplay. Rush 2 does have slightly better handling in my opinion though and I still get to play it regularly because (whisper it) I've got it on my PC...
